Learning to love, and be comfortable in the skin I'm in has been one of the hardest, yet most rewarding things I've ever done. And I continue to work on it, one day at a time✌🏻✨#knowyourvalue#knowyourworth
Friday thoughts, changing my mindset this past fall in my professional/personal relationships has been a game changer: embrace differences, show/have gratitude, nurture relationships, support others, be kind to yourself 💓🤙🏾
We’re just about two weeks away from the New Year, and many have started to reflect back on this past year; the changes, the challenges, the new adventures, the highs and the lows, personal and professional growths and setbacks. Many of us put other people before ourselves and are too busy helping them, supporting them, or building them up that we forget to put ourselves first, which can lead to being taken advantage of. Those things can take a physical, mental, and emotional toll on our wellbeing. As we head into the new year, resolve to find that balance. You can help and support others without burning yourself out or getting taken advantage of by putting more focus and value on yourself. You deserve love and support from others too!! And if you feel like you’re not, then it’s time to shift gears and stop trying with those types of people. #newyearnewyou#focusonwellbeing#youdontcomesecond#findbalance#liveyourbestlife#knowyourvalue#foodforthought#personalgrowth
- Tungsten Film -
I fell in love with the color of tungsten film.
I was 29 years old
Especially the one high ISO type
I kind liked the noise it produced
I know that the fashion magazine cameraman likes yellow in his images.
I know the hollywood model like to have pink skin tone.
As much as I liked this color.
But I didn't know why I liked this color.
And why they likes their colors.
I didn't understand other before, because I didn't even know myself.
About, why I loved this color so much?
Why I was into Chagall so much?
Why munk gave me so much impact at that time.
But I know now.
I was lost, and trying to find the way out.
20 years since I took this picture.
My hair have got so much gray.
But, I'm having fun using so many colors in my life.
For others needs

“As you are shifting, you will begin to realize that you are not the same person you used to be. The things you used to tolerate have now become intolerable. Where you remained quiet, you are now speaking your truth. Where you once battled and argued, you are now choosing to remain silent. You are beginning to understand the value of your voice and there are some situations that no longer deserve your time, energy, and focus.” 🤔 [[unrelated: how gorgeous is this tree?! Had to snap a quick pic through my sunroof 😍🍁🍂]]
Being a good boss is being firm yet understanding. And -understanding who works for you and who they are as a person. You are to support THEM, they are support YOU. You never tear them down. Being a girlboss and having a girlboss is about empowering each other. Shame on all girl bosses hurting those professionally and personally- especially those who are loyal to them. #knowyourvalue As a girlboss there are little girls out there looking up to you. A LOT of people are paying special attention to the power of women right now- do NOT be a reason for them to question this attention by continuing your shitty behavior. #scarstoproveit#onedayyouwilllearn#lookwhatyoumademedo We are human first. Thank you 👏🏻👏🏻
I saw this earlier, and it made me think a bit about life and relationships. We've all had relationships in our lives where it seemed one sided or you were always questioning if it was truly a positive relationship. #truthbomb ahead... Not everyone in this world is meant to be in your life, and you're not meant to be in their's. Sometimes you will be too much or too little for someone. You should never have to spend time convincing someone of your #worth and of your #love , if they can't see that then they aren't meant for you. It's taken me a long time to not only learn that, but to live it. It's taken me cutting the cord from those toxic #relationships that don't add value to my life, or that are only surface relationships, to learn that it's ok if everyone doesn't like me. We lose those relationships to teach us lessons about the type of people we do want in our lives. We lose those relationships so that we can grow as people. Is it hard? Yep. Is it painful? Definitely. But you know what else is are and painful? Being stuck, in a #friendship or relationship that isn't adding value to your life, staying stagnant, and not being appreciated. The other side of the hard and painful is a beautiful place... a place where your #vibe attracts your #tribe . A place where you're appreciated for being you and for what you being to the table. Remember this the next time you're trying to fit in or trying to make a #relationship work. #inspirationalquotes#onmyheart#truth#knowyourworth#knowyourvalue#yourvibeattractsyourtribe
KEEPING COMMITMENTS 💪🏻 •
What if we showed up for ourselves, the same way we are willing to show up for others?
I volunteered to be a team leader during a seminar series over the last three months.
I’ve had so many impactful moments and experiences.
This evening my team helped me to see how much I’m willing to show up for my commitments when they are visible by other people.
But I break the mini “invisible” commitments I make to myself everyday.
What if we valued our promises to ourself, just as much as we value our promises to others?
What’s one small promise you could make to yourself today, and what would it be like to follow through?
How would you think and feel about yourself if you made this a daily habit?
Used to think #confidence came from accomplishment... That's one big reason WHY I got a job on wall street... I didn't want to have to "prove myself" to anyone ever again...👂i was listening to those people who told me "having Goldman on your resume is a stamp of approval for someone who doesn't know you..." 👈 it's true, for someone who solely relies on "performance" to define their own sense of self-worth and value 🚨🚨🚨 but that mentality is a recipe for disaster cause... 🚨🚨🚨 life has storms that no resume or bank account can ever withstand! So don't build your house (life) on sand! 🌊🏡🏖 Work HARD! Make money. Be proud of what you do. But don't let it define you 🎯 Don't be impressed by titles... Or followers... Or fame... 📸 All that tells me is that you know how to play the game... Instead, be impressed by authenticity, passion, and bold, good intention. Be impressed by people who are so secure in who they are that they don't need to beg for your attention. 😊 The secret to SECURITY in yourself... real confidence in yourself... is found when you understand you were born with a purpose to make an impact that goes far beyond "you" ... 🔥that's when "you" stop waiting for people to give you permission to execute...
What will you do with your life? You don't have to save the world. 🌍 You just have to know your role in it. ☝️ One shot people.
BTW, @ 8pm EST tonight...I'm signing on for my last free masterclass before doors close for "Live Your Legacy" bootcamp🚪we've only got few spots left. Link in bio to learn more. Don't be late. 👉 @tjloeffler
Fellow songwriters, in case you’re not already hip to this: give your name and credits a little search engine action each month. Know EXACTLY who’s handling your older catalogues, if that’s not you. (I’m sure you know they’re often sold, then re-sold, then re-sold...) I’ve been remiss in doing so with regularity; however, this morning, it led to my discovery of how much of my work has been appropriated by other artists without my ever having seen A CENT of entitled royalties. I’m on a mission to collect what’s mine. ‘Best believe that.
Songwriters/composers are shafted ALL THE TIME, yet there’s no music without us, eh? Reclaim, y’all. Reclaim. The rampant theft is mindblowing as so many writers struggle simply to survive.
