Being a god-parent is such an honor - and a treat! 💕We are blessed to live near one of our godchildren (and this little bear 🐻 cub is still small enough to pick up- barely!) - the rest are scattered across the country. 💫 We are headed north to see one of them!! 🙌🏼 Both Mark and I love kids but we didn’t have our own. We are thankful we have so many to love on, like this big-hearted cutie. ✨💟✨ . . What are you thankful for today? What will you give thanks for this weekend? There is much to be thankful for in this life. 🙏🏼I’d love to hear what’s on your Gratitude List 📝 . . . #thankfulforyou #godparents #godchildren #familylove💟 #thanksgiving #gratitudelist #dailygratitude #loveismycompass #joyismycompass #chosenfamily #feelpeacenow☮️

Pst, hey, you night owls just turning in and you early birds just getting up, it's time... for a Secret Late Night Post! Tonight's theme is things and people close to my heart, and there just so many! Stunt practice with my kung fu family, DnD nights, but even bigger than those are two small things: 1. Moments that are so amazing or weird or beautiful that you experience on your own and with others. You get to have something special, whether it's something only you know or you get to share with the people you love 2. Small gifts that mean the absolute world. In this post there are 2 pictures, both of art, both low in monetary cost, but they hold so much more meaning for me. The first is a poster of my favorite romance anime My LOVE Story. My friend @aipom93 knew how much it meant to me so he got a poster and had it signed by the voice actress of the female lead. I still have it hanging above my bed, and I'll be rewatching the series (like the deeply closeted weeb I am). The second is hand drawn art from growing mangaka @katmelkjor (really amazing gal, even more amazing artist). I was amongst the first (and maybe the only one) to see it and its finished version. I'm not sharing that one because it is just so special to me, one of those little experiences only I have, and I feel very special to have been among the first for her to have shown it to. Take a moment and recognize the special experiences and people you have in your life. Cherish them! #Actor #ActorsLife #Stunts #StuntPractice #StuntFighting #ChosenFamily #Anime #Manga #Art

Because who doesn’t need a pop of yellow and afternoon sunlight on the day before the day before Thanksgiving? 🥰 The holidays can bring up A LOT. Sure they can be delightful and fun, but they also can bring up stress, complicated family dynamics, and feelings of loss, loneliness, anger or self-doubt. If you are feeling it already, know that you are not alone. People may not post about it on social media, but no one’s life is perfect. Resist getting caught up in assumptions or expectations. Take a break if you need it. Show up how you want to, and trust your boundaries. If you need support, ask for it. You matter. And you are enough. . If you are feeling like you need immediate support, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached at 1-800-273-8255. NAMI (National Alliance of Mental Illness) has resources and local chapters at 1-800-950-6264. . DM me if you are looking for someone to work with regularly. Phone consultations are always complimentary. I have office space in Santa Monica, and I also meet with clients online. You do not have to go through this alone. • #thanksgiving #mentalhealthawareness #selfcare #healthyboundaries #familydinner #chosenfamily #itsokaynottobeokay #selflove #holidayblues #holidayseason #friendsgiving #Repost @bohemegoods

Friendship is a sacred bond, a brother/sisterhood, the family you get to choose, an establishment of power that no outside persons, groups or agendas can break up. You may know all of people and have many acquaintances but there is not stronger relationship then a true friend. Drop a picture or take your true be friends #friendstilltheend #myfriendsarebetterthanyours #friendsarefamily #chosenfamily #truebonds #willyoushareyourcookie

Happy 1 year anniversary to my teddy bear @blackbearextraordinaire. This year has been filled with magic, reality, triumph, struggle, and everything in between. I can't wait to see what forever has in store for our love. We celebrated our love with a Commitment Ceremony, a gathering of community to affirm love in the queerest of ways. It's a blessing to be so loved by my chosen family and my life partner. . . . #queerlove #chosenfamily #qwear #dapperq

The best thing about celebrating milestones and life events for folks you love...is you get to see other folks you both ❤️ and familiar souls in their village! So glad I got to see some of my 😇’s (and Fellow Detroiters) + her friends Sunday in Pittsburgh to celebrate @isalynn_kai becoming a Delta. These folks are some of my favorite humans in the 🌎. Swipe ⬅️ to 👀! #beingjammonit #weiscute #chosenfamily

Hannibal exploration part 3 - it is a cute little Mississippi River town leveraging their “favorite son” to the fullest. It was too cold to spend a lot of town out and about (outside the relative warmth of the cave), but we did our duty of support a few great independent shops on Main Street and checked out a fun playground between the railroad tracks and the river. Love you @kerieastridge!! Thank you and Jamie for meeting up with us! #smalltownusa #supportlocal #bestswingever #chosenfamily

1. Picture: @antonia_schulze visiting me at the Hofbräu tent for my birthday. 2. Picture: @antonia_schulze capturing the moment me facetiming @horsleyseth ❤ Just had a great dinner date with @antonia_schulze tonight and now I have to think about how thankful I am for friends like her. Friends that care for you, cheer you up, want nothing else than the best for you and encourage you to be the best version of yourself. They simply make a positive difference in your life. Be the same friend for them! Your friends are your chosen family! (one of my favorite quotes) #thankful for #friends #family #love #supporteachother #friendship #chosenfamily #toallmyfriends

Thanks for a weekend I’ll never forget. We slumber partied harder than em all. Made forts, drank lots of hot drinks and cold ones too, and hiked our legs to oblivion. And I would do it all again with an even bigger smile on my face. You are a straight gem Jae Borgen but you know that — Thank you for never growing up with me. I’m so glad you joined our community so I never have to miss you! See you tomorrow on our miracle morning Skype call with the rest of our fitness family.

Day 2 of @traumaqueentherapy ‘s gratitude challenge : it’s my birthday today 🎂 !! today I’m grateful for all of the people in my life that help me be a better person and always have my back: My family - I am who I am because of them, and I will be who I want to become because of them as well. The hardest working people I’ve ever known and those with the biggest hearts. Lisa - The kindest and most sweetest person in this world because she shows me how much strength it takes to uphold kindness and generosity above all else. Angel - A partner I never expected and someone that’s made so much of my dreams possible. My home away from home. Kristen - I am a better person because of her tough love and unconditional love. I’m so glad she is back in my life. Simone - The strength and the intelligence of this woman is unmatched. No matter what time passes I know we will pick up where we left off. Jaymarie - Such a selfless light of sunshine and talent that I’ve connected with and loved since day one. Nina - Such a creative and strong woman that I can count on to be there no matter how often our schedules don’t match up. Las Serpientas/Yareli - a group of women that I’ve found my deepest form of empowerment from and an instructor that believes in me more than I believe in myself. Anders - An embodiment of myself in male form that understands and empathizes and shares in ways I can find from no other . Just among the love I have for so many people. I am so so grateful for all that love me and that I have the pleasure of loving 💕

I love when I get some good cookie wisdom! 🥠Friends have grown exponentially in importance to me over the last decade. Feeling full blown rejection from my parents created in me a deep mistrust of others and their love for me. But thanks to dear friends for being there, and being there again, and again, and again, they have helped in breaking down some of those walls that were erected out of fear. Without the love and support of friends I wouldn't be who I am today. Nor would my little dude. They are my chosen family. And for that I am thankful and sending my 'cheerful message' onward. 💕💗💕 . Feel free to tag someone you'd like to share a cheerful message of friendship to. ❤️🤝❤️ . . . . . . . #friends #community #chosenfamily #gratitude #practicelove #tuesdayvibes #consciousliving #presentmoments #fortunecookie #cookiewisdom #messageoftheday

Repost from @generousspace : “Today is Trans Day of Remembrance. There is much to lament and grieve on behalf of our trans & non-binary siblings: discrimination, violence, murder. Please pause and remember those who have lost their lives this year. In the midst of the pain and injustice, we also see profound courage, resilience, wisdom, and hope. Our trans and non-binary siblings are gifts to the church - if only the church would have the humility to listen.” #wontbeerased #beloved #chosenfamily #generousspace #transrights #transdayofremembrance #nonbinaryrights

Saturday was National Adoption Day and I was busy working and totally forgot to post. These two take my breath away. They are the light of our household and our reasons why...we live, eat, sleep, breathe, work... We love them dearly. We were working on a third child but it didn’t work out as planned and she will also always have a special place in my heart. Chosen families are some of the best families in the world. These two are chosen but in truth, I believe they chose me. #adoption #gayadoption #lgbtqadoption #myreasonswhy #thelightsofmylife #thenoiseinmyhouse #hearingdaddymakesmesmile #theyareeverything #chosenfamily #lovewins #loveislove #thisisus #ouradoptionstory #gaydads
