You guys. Seriously, thank you. Two weeks ago, I released my first song as NightPulse and I can’t lie – I was and still am scared shitless. Sharing your work with others is an incredibly vulnerable act. It’s as if to say “Here I am! Do you love me and all that I represent??” That may sound dramatic, but at the root of artistry often lies crippling insecurity. Our work is a direct extension of us – a manifestation of our frustrations, hopes, dreams, doubts, and life experiences. It is our way of expressing the inexpressible, hoping that others connect and feel the same way too. Any attack on our work can feel like a direct attack on us, even if we know logically that we are not our work.
That being said, thank you for being so supportive. Every comment, like, text, and other seemingly impersonal method of communication has felt like a warm bath of love. And if this resonates with you in any way, just remember that fear is useless in getting you to where you want to go (save for acute threats) ❤️ // 📷: @lindseybyrnes
sun - Y E Y ! @pippa_yoga ↠ 'if ever I needed a reason to believe in magic it's this...exactly one year ago I vocalised my idea for @thegirlnessproject for the first time to a couple of special souls in my life ~ 365 days later we're in the @theipaper commenting on how to 'hack your way to happiness' 😱🤗😱 written by the ever-talented @siobhanbnorton ~ I share how switching our mindset from 'life is happening to me' to 'life is happening F O R me' is one of best ways to move into an empowered place where there is an opportunity for growth in every challenge. I love all the tips in here! Go check it out, link in bio 👆🏻(ps. this was yesterday's paper, late to the party because I forgot it was being published and went on a mad dash to the newsagents at 11pm trying to find a copy 🙈😂😅)
Zo 'prepping' voor een volle week! Na een weekend vol zon, hard werken (in huis 😜) friends & family kan ik er (bijna) weer tegenaan. Goede voorbereiding is het halve werk. Zeker als je in een continue spreidstand zit tussen bedrijf & gezin is de taken verdelen en dus alle helpende handen op de juiste taken zetten zó belangrijk. 'It takes a village to get it all done'. Maar dan wél een voldaan gevoel als het allemaal weer lukt. 💪🏻✨. #sundayprep#fullweekahead#freelanceratwork
Der Stimme des Herzens folgen erfordert Mut , nicht immer ergibt dass für unseren Verstand einen Sinn und meistens wehrt sich unser Kopf ganz schön gegen die Stimme unseres Herzens. Da gibt es Pläne, Einwände und tausend Gründe die unser Kopf vorschiebt, warum jetzt der falsche Zeitpunkt ist dem Herzen zu folgen.
Wenn wir lernen zu vertrauen können wir in den Moment eintauchen. Erst später werden wir verstehen warum uns das Herz dorthin gebracht hat .
Wenn wir der Herzensstimme nachgehen, mit allem was wir sind, wachsen wir über uns hinaus und werden ankommen im Glück. 🌈
Ich wünsch Dir einen schönen Abend- lass dein Herz diese Woche ein wenig zu Wort kommen und höre aufmerksam hin 💕

mother of pearl is the common name for a blend of minerals that make up an iridescent coating inside of sea shells. this blend is secreted by oysters + sea mollusks to coat + protect themselves from parasites.
formed out of an act of self care, mother of pearl has a very distinct multi-colored effect + a faint glow similar to that of the moon. she offers us the ability to see and be seen. to embrace the facets of ourselves + give ourselves love. her vibration inspires us to value self care + come to know what turns us on and off as we nurture ourselves. she teaches us that only we can love ourselves the way we know we deserve. we are our ultimate lover. happy sunday loves! the ultimate self care day…

Made my way back to the yoga mat for an Ashtanga home practice today! After a week of vacation and no yoga practice, my body was a little cranky, but super happy to be back. But Do we ever really leave, though? My intention is always a yogic lifestyle. And while I don't always do asana or formal practice, my mind is always on living ethically (or the best I can do on any given day). And I love this card from @gabbybernstein; it embodies everything for me. Time to sharpen my aim!! #intention#sankalpa#yoga#yogi#yogateacher#meditate

I truly believe we can have Magical Moments DAILY.... “The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper." Never settle for anything less than Magical ✨

This was the day my life changed forever. 🙌
I was getting ready for a casting and was feeling really horrible. I was really tired and achy, my stomach hurt, and I really didn't feel like acting the part.
I could have given up and gone back to bed. That would have been the easy move. I instead decided to pull myself together and make some drastic changes. I had been taking Ibuprofen for as long as I can remember for my Arthritis and Lyme disease. I decided that I wouldn't be taking it any longer. This was the last medication to get off of and I was DONE with it!
I bought my outfit for my casting, put my running clothes on in the changing room, and drove to Green Lake to get a quick run in before my casting. I felt a lot better after my run and was ready for my casting.
It's amazing how powerful exercise can be for the body and mind. My health wouldn't be where it is today without it. Exercise is non-negotiable when it comes to healing your body from autoimmune issues.
I no longer take any medications for my Arthritis or Lyme Disease. Remission is possible. Doctors never believed I'd be able to run again and I proved them wrong. Doctors never believed I could go into remission and I proved them wrong. I am my own most powerful tool. 💪💚🙌🏃🏽♀️
