Within you there is peace, power, and love, you really can connect with that and create a life you love and is fulfilling for you. ~ @iLaClair on #EmbracingIntensity#Podcast ep. 17: The Power to Change the World Through Intense #Millennials
Morning sunday sunggles from our fur-baby are the best snuggles.
We adopted our pup 12 years ago when she was 4 mo young. She’s now 13 & showing her age 👵🏼 I’ll tell you one thing though, her love has not wavered. A dog gives the most unconditional & real love you will ever find. We’ve always treated Hollyberry like our little human, & despite her rough “attitude” at times with other people, we’ve always given her the best life we can. •She was severely abused when we adopted her from the shelter, only 1 other puppy out of 5 survived ☹️ & the parents were abused beyond what I would/could even explain- so awful. I just don’t know how people can do that 😔. So when Holly has a hard time adjusting to people or trusting people, we don’t hold it against her- we just love her, keep her happy, & keep her safe. • Not everyone sees how wonderful she is, but we do! Every animal deserves a happy life no matter how bad of a start they had. It goes for humans too, haha. There’s always time to start fresh with a clean slate. Allow others to have that fresh start they need, even if they screwed it up in the past. We ALL deserve a chance to do better.
Happy Sunday friends. ✌🏼, ❤️, and 🐶 💓
This week we celebrate the one year anniversary of the #EmbracingIntensity#Podcast !
In this episode, Aurora shares:
Lessons learned from a year of doing the Embracing Intensity Podcast.
How the podcast is evolving into the next year.
Other ways she is shifting her work to better meet the needs of her audience and align with her goals.
😆 sorry, not sorry! I couldn’t help myself. Haha • I literally worked my butt off (pun intended) to loose 85 lbs! Took me 1 year actually. After I finally accomplished my weight goal, I decided to challenge myself to anything I thought was too hard to do before or that I never had the guts to do/try. Why? Because literally losing 85 lbs was the hardest most challenging thing I had ever done, so I figured if I could do that, I could do ANYTHING! 💪🏼 So I trained to become a runner 🏃🏻♀️, & this past year I’ve been training my body for weight lifting 🏋🏻. • Do what challenges you, bc you only get one life & the time passes too quickly. Make the impossible possible & live your dreams instead of wishing for them. If you’re not challenging yourself you’re not changing, & if you’re not changing you’re not growing. • What have you always wanted to change? Reach out, ask for help, that’s what I’m here for. 😊💪🏼
Excuse my voice... when I'm so in the moment with my art it just comes out; all artists know what I'm talking about. The music helps us create. We feel the rhythm, the beat.. we move to it... you ever know an artist without soul... without passion? I can't sleep... and I've been contemplating whether or not to create this piece for 6 months now. As I drove home today, I had this intuitive feeling, at the exact moment I saw a vision of a face, a smile that I'd recognize anywhere...and at that same moment this song came on. I've never heard it, but instantly I recognized this voice. This man's voice is my favorite voice to listen to. So I did what I do to feel the beat... I played it on repeat and tapped the beat as I drove, as I hiked, as I ran... Till I had it in memory. This couple I've drawn for years but never on such a large scale... never on canvas. They are Hawk and his Mother Nature, and I know these two all too well. He continues to flow to her naturally... and she... well she gives him her love and her soul honestly, passionately, unconditionally in all lifetimes. It will probably take a long time to create, but once complete their passion and love will take your breath away. Sweet dreams or good morning. #formymuse#southernman#intuition#naturelovers#originalart#hawkandmothernature#marcusmumford
When I first met my bestie @helena_bean31 I didn’t realize how important she would be to me. I never really had ‘girl’ friends, just guy friends bc I grew up a tomboy. Still to this day her & I joke about how on paper we have no business being best friends, 😄, but we are! • I had the pleasure of staying with her & their new addition 👶🏻 Penelope the last few days while her hubby was away for work. Anyone who knows me knows I’m not well versed in babies- especially newborns- but auntie Kellie did her best ☺️.
• one thing I can say is my bestie is always happy to share & be part of all my new endeavors- that’s what bestie’s do right?! Well, she went above & beyond- now that I’m newly vegan she took me to this amazing restaurant Life Alive & we had an amazing lunch (as you can see). The last pic is our dinner- I cooked a vegan asian dinner for us with a recipe I found & she showed me how to marinate & pan sear tofu. 🍲🌱
• It may not seem like much to most of you, but it means a Lot to me to be able to share my vegan lifestyle with someone- not everyone is as open minded to eating like this, but she is! She lived many years growing up vegan so it comes natural, & her parents/sister are also amazingly supportive as well. Any of you fellow vegans out there know this struggle I’m sure! The 100 questions about how we eat protein, the curled-lip looks & the comments. • I’ve realized to just do me. Do what I need to do to be healthy & happy. Share it with the world, share the knowledge, & hopefully you have a bestie as great as mine to share it with. 😊❤️👯
If you ever feel like you are "too much," know that thing that makes you "too much" is probably your greatest strength. #EmbracingIntensity#Podcast ep. 00: Introducing Embracing Intensity with @auroraremember
It’s so refreshing to meet ppl who just inspire you and call you to excellence! This is Latoya with NYPD and Meagan who is an Air Force Chaplain on my flight today and it was such an honor sitting next to these powerful women...totally a #godmove lol! These women are breaking down barriers, stereotypes, inspiring, and leading with passion. They are making room for others by embracing who they are and called to be. They gave me just the jump start I needed to get my head back in the game. God loves to speak in unexpected ways just be expectant that He is going to be speak. It is never an issue of IF He will but the focus should be KNOWING He will! That is the confidence we have in Him. He always meets us at the right time and in the right way that will resonate with us forever. The talk we had this morning has made me fired up and super charged to see a difference in our community, in our culture, and in our nation. I feel like now I’ve got friends for life. Truly an unexpected blessing to be poured in my spirit up in the AIR cause quite frankly God will meet you ANYWHERE cause He is EVERYWHERE 😉❤️🙏🏾 #planepreaching#planeteaching#fire#inspiration#strongwomen#courageouswomen#passionatewomen#gamechangers#societyshifters#jesuslovers#family#sonlight#anywhereeverywheregod @2nd_lieutenant_fitgirl 👍🏾
Remembering this day last year fondly 😌🏃🏻♀️🥇 one of my few first places & my only team run... oh what a great team we were! We represented well for sure. So sad I will miss this race this year bc of my knee recovery 🙁. I can’t wait until I can run again! Feel that pavement, cutting through the wind, breathing hard, muscles aching- I know it doesn’t sound appealing , but you fellow runners out there know this feeling, haha. I’ll get there, & when I do... 👊🏼
So this is me pigging out on ribs on my 33rd birthday in March! 😆🐽🙈 O.M.G! • What I will say is pics like this take me back to the days when I was growing up in a VERY ITALIAN house 🇮🇹 —everything was “MANGIA! EAT!” 🤦🏻♀️... now fast forward to adult life & my unhealthy relationship with food! 🙅🏻
•It’s taken me a long time to figure out a happy balance with food. What emotional eating is, what hungry eating is, what over eating is. It also took me a long time to learn about food, nutrition, vitamins, etc. It’s taken me many miss-steps, plateau’s, heartbreaks to really find my way to a healthy lifestyle. Now that I’ve come so far & pushed through the adversity, I’m EXTREMELY grateful to be at a point where I am happy with my relationship with food, & I can pass my knowledge & support on to others with Beachbody.
What’s your favorite “cheat” meal? How are you pushing through & achieving your health goals? If you’re not, what are you gonna do about it? Let me know!
Ps: I still remember the taste of that brunch meal & those ribs! Heaven 🙏🏼😋
And I was told not to show the true nature of my face... Because within my smile your soul is what is irrevocably traced.
My energy does glow for you so vividly within...
Surfacing your beautiful presence on my sunkissed skin.
So natural I am in the way I belong to you...
MAN of my heart this will always remain true.
And mother nature never once needed to ask me why I love you so...
For she created me for only your soul from long ago...
Soulmates through distance and circumstance will always gravitate to each other's meant to be...
For the universe etched me in the stars as your natural destiny.
And there are places in nature where I have passionate visions of just you and I...
As the elements feel my burning love for you change the direction of any given sky.
And the peaceful warmth you wash over me on my natural sea shore...
Moves to our rhythm in how my love for you shakes the earthen floor.
Delicately my hands touch its surface and I ignite the connection of our desire...
Through lifetimes man of my soul you'll always be the only one to fuel and ignite my burning fire.
And the desert, the mountains, and the sea...
Now understand, all others are invisible to me... Because within my heart, my body, my soul... it is you...I will ever understand and see. -Sirine
I bet someone has invited you to check out their business that you can do from home, on your own hours, etc. Maybe even someone has invited you to coach. What I am inviting you to is different.
This ⬇️ is different. Our team is different. It's special and unique and there's no other team like it. Sure, we are a top 10 team. Maybe that gets some people's attention - maybe that scares some people off. What it means to me is that we have passionate, driven women who I can learn from. I don't have to run my own business totally alone not knowing what to do next. We have momentum that spreads. We have resources.
The biggest thing that makes us different though is our heart and soul. We DO rise by lifting others. We have fun with each other. We laugh. We cry. We grow. We love and support each other. I have never been surrounded by such amazing women who care so deeply and just want to help others. We are a passionate team.
Drop your email ⬇️ to join our coach sneak peek that starts tomorrow.
Has your personal message gotten muddled? Do you ever feel like you’ve lost what it means to be You? The world is sending you a lot of messages. For an Intense Woman, the messages can be difficult to sort through, and your own voice can seem to fade through all the noise.
In this week’s episode of the #EmbracingIntensity#Podcast , Aurora interviews Dr. @carolparkerwalsh of @evolveyourimage . Carol is a former lawyer with a story unlike any other. Her mission is to encourage women to find their true voice, re-create their brand or their business, and find success doing the things they love. Listen and be encouraged by Carol’s story of conviction, challenge, and triumph in this week’s podcast!
IGNITE your passion and find your calling - realising you can actually do something and be completely comfortable doing it. "I can't sell".. "I'm not a sales person" "I couldn't do what you do"
We sell who we are and share information almost everyday - when we meet people , go to work, do a job, talk to people, listen to people, put ourselves in social circles.
With passion, knowledge on what you do and share and believe you can, you can do anything.
Wow!! @thegalenhooksmethod was a life changing experience. It was exactly what I envisioned and more. It was a 2-day training of facing and pushing through all my fears as a dancer. I learned, I explored, and I grew. I feel empowered, confident, and hungry for more self-discovery. I am finding my voice as an artist and I am excited about this process. Thank you @galenhooks for sharing your talent and knowledge with us. You're making such a positive impact in our dance community and in the lives of many! ✨💕 Cheers to all the beautiful, powerful, and strong women who were also apart of this workshop! We did it and rocked it!! 💃🏽❤️
Talking about fears on Friday the 13th.... pun definitely intended! 😁👻🔪 No ones perfect people. We are all human & all make mistakes- sometimes the same mistakes, big ones, small ones. It is what it is.
The best thing we all can do is accept it. Accept it from ourselves & from others, & most importantly be forgiving of yourself & others. We are all in this together. Live without fear & without apology.
