Going to bed early, waking up early, working 10 hour shifts, eating vegetables, is NOT sexy. 😂🙈✋ It is BORING. But those boring things become the SWEETEST things because they are not so little when it means loving someone else a little bigger. 👇🌙👇 The little things make up our life, So little things done daily end up meaning a lot more than flowers on our birthday and candy on christmas. 😇 Simple as that. Nobody LIKES cleaning, & taking care of ourselves & others is hard, tedious, messy work. 👍 But somehow it all becomes special when done with and for someone we love. Motherhood, wifing, or cleaning SOMEONE ELSES house is so much more fulfilling than when I am the only one on the line... But honestly, are we EVER the only ones on the line? Now remember that taking care of yourself ALSO takes care of others, allows you to fill from a fulfilled, rested, energized bucket. 💙 Ive realized that I have a lot more to offer when I take care of my best self.

I learned so much in our tour and roundtable with Wolfcreek Cohousing in Grass Valley, CA. Traditional senior housing and assisted living = "I pay, you serve" while senior cohousing = "let me serve my neighbors". We heard so many stories of how rich and vibrant and caring this community of 30 homes (average age 73).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cohousing #wolfcreek #intentionalcommunity #impromptuvisit #pedestrianpath #leavethecar #landscapingideas #frontporch #multigenerational #seniorhousing #agingathome #walkability #sunnydays #sunnydayz #sunnydayvibes #sunnydayfun #outdoorsecond #outdoorslife #outdoorstuff #vitamind #growbeautifully #haveinspiration #plantsofinstagram #treesofinstagram #treescape #trees_captures #plantsomething #plantsinfocus #plantspiration #blueskies

Stats 👩‍🎓 - I know I'm boring you all, but this is so, so important. - "People are going to university without a clear idea of their direction or what they should be doing - and... that's a problem". I advocate for this fully. Uni is a fantastic place, and I have loved my experience there, but the amount of lost earnings I've had could have paid for my HECs debt three times over. Thankfully, after doing my research, and weighing up my options, I have now picked a degree that will put me ahead, and in a field that has a 121% increase of jobs in the next five years. - All I'm saying is weigh up your options, know what you want to do, and then go to uni 😊

Day 4 of #10thingstotellyou . “I am strangely good at…” Lord of the Rings trivia. I went through quite an obsession when I was younger. . Like, read the books every year, used calendar pages to wallpaper my room, memorized songs and poems, watched all the bonus material from the extended versions, kind of obsession. I have never lost at Lord of the Rings trivial pursuit, and I tried to convince my mom to let me take Elvish as my foreign language (what’s the point of homeschool if you can’t pursue your passions, right? 😉) . Even though it’s been years since I’ve read the books or watched the bonus material, so much of it is still engrained in my memory and comes in handy at the strangest times. . For instance, did you know… • J.R.R. Tolkien was a linguist first, and he invented Middle Earth so that he would have a place to use all the languages he created • There are two dialects of Elvish, Quenya and Sindarin, and both are now legally stated languages (I wanted to learn Sindarin, in case you were wondering) • Viggo Mortenson broke his toe while kicking the helmet in The Two Towers scene when he thinks Merry and Pippin are dead • The sound engineers created the Balrog’s roar by scraping a concrete cinderblock across the ground at different speeds • Sean Astin gained about 40 pounds so that he could play Samwise Gamgee • Liv Tyler got to sing part of the soundtrack in an extended scene in the Return of the King • In the Two Towers when Aragorn rides into Edoras for the first time and sees Eowyn, then looks back and she’s gone, the gong you hear in the soundtrack is done by Peter Jackson (the director) • Peter Jackson has a cameo in each film • Sean Bean (Boromir) climbed a cliff every day to get to his mountain scenes because he was afraid of flying . I could go on and on, because the the nerdiness knows no bounds. But I’ll save that for another day 😉 . I just shared my embarrassingly nerdy expertise, now it’s your turn. What are you strangely good at?

"L’Arche does two things for me: it helps me focus on relationships and it helps me to slow down.  I feel I’ve benefited more from L’Arche than the other way around.  L’Arche has been good for my soul as it helps me understand the unique qualities in each person." . . . This week on #FacesOfLArcheAtlanta, we interviewed Daniel! Daniel goes to Trinity Anglican Church where several people in our house go, and reached out to develop a deeper friendship with our Core Members. He has meals at the house monthly and does other fun activities with the house, like going to see Jurassic World in the theater (pictured here). Daniel, thank you for investing yourself in our community! We are grateful for your friendship.

The prompt for day 3 of #10thingstotellyou is “a thing that changed my worldview was…” . This may sound cliché, but the thing that changed my worldview the most was college. . Before college I wasn’t a question-asker, I dreaded homework, I’d never had to make friends (see post #1), and I’d never experienced any way of living other than my small town and sheltered life. . Then I went Oklahoma Baptist University, and spent four years growing and changing and maturing. . I learned to love learning for the person it made me, rather than the grade I got or the “practicality” of it. . I learned that it’s okay to ask hard questions as long as you keep looking for the answers. . I wrestled through the idea that all truth is God’s truth. . I met people who grew up in totally different states, countries, environments, beliefs, patterns, and perspectives than me. . I learned that people are more important than projects or deadlines. . I learned that disagreeing with someone doesn’t mean you can’t be friends. . I realized my way may not always be the right way, and my opinion might be wrong, even if it’s well thought-out. . I experienced some of the deepest community I’ve ever had. . At the end of four years I graduated, and by no means did I have it all figured out (I still don’t, and never will). But I left equipped with the tools to look at the world differently and to ask better questions, the confidence that I can learn anything if I’m willing to put in the time and effort, the understanding that the world is a big, varied place, and the conviction that I always want to continue learning and growing. . All of that together, plus the wonderful people I met who continue to shape my life today, changed my worldview for the better. . What about you? I’d love to hear about something that changed your worldview!

Travel fund update ✈ - I had a lot of helpful messages on my last travel fund post, and it got me thinking - I definitely need to keep my money in the higher interest account rather than shifting it around. - So, check out my new system! All of my savings are now kept in the 2.8% account, and I'm tracking my goals this way. I've decided to just let my savings build to 25k, and instead track my money against my specific goals. I'm still aiming for September 2019 for the $25,000 🤞 this also allows me to get rid of a redundant savings account, making my minimalist heart happy - So basically, I have my primary goal of $25,000 in my savings, with secondary goals that have specific dates matched to them. - What do you think? Too confusing? Or a much better way?

I was sun gazing at Imperial Beach yesterday and it gave me an insight into meditation. I was making it a point to not break my gaze with the Sun like me and the Sun where having a stare off and people kept walking by but instead of allowing the passing person to break my gaze, I stayed directed towards the Sun. That's like when you're meditating and you have a focal point and you keep your focus trained on that while thoughts pass no matter what they are. The people weren't aware that they were getting in my way, they were just passing by so there was no point for me to get upset towards them. Our thoughts aren't aware that they're getting in our way either so there's no need to get upset towards them. A couple times someone walking by did make me avert my gaze but then I would just return my focus again towards the Sun as soon as I realized I drifted. It's important to have a focus while meditating but to also be relaxed. As I've heard it put before, it's like when you're feeding a baby and it's attention starts to go elsewhere. You just gently bring their attention back to the food on the spoon. When we treat ourselves with the same gentleness that we would treat a child with, it radiates outwards into all of our relationships in Life. Intention is more important than any spiritual practice. Any spiritual practice can be a path to liberation if the intentions are pure and any spiritual practice can be a distraction or destructive if the intentions are not. Whatever helps you to get into a relaxed mental state that opens your heart as well, is the perfect practice. 💚 #wwoof #workaway #worktrade #highraw #hclf #rawtill4 #rawveganism #fruitarianism #veganism #plantbased #juicecleansing #herbs #hollistic #health #naturalhealth #fasting #dryfasting #spirituality #yoga #meditation #nature #returntonature #backtonature #selfsustainability #community #intentionalcommunity #minimalism

A few days ago I posted a photo of my dog and I. I received some messages regarding my skin care so I figured I would share here. 🤗 . . I didn’t always have good skin. Most people do not believe me when I tell them I had really bad acne. So bad it literally hurt my face. 😣So here is a very embarrassing before photo and after photo. I struggled years with bad acne up until I was 22. So no it wasn’t just because of puberty 😩. I used to think all these products would cure my skin and in the meantime I needed to use make up to cover my imperfections. I WAS WRONG. It wasn’t until I decided to simplify my skin care, eat healthier, drink more water, and not wear makeup I saw a difference in my skin. . . . If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know skin care is something I will not sacrifice. I don’t necessarily mean only purchase luxury items but instead in investing in products that works for your skin. I have a mix of products, some drugstore and some luxury products. The key is I use my more budget friendly products everyday and I use the high line products when my skin needs a little more TLC. Here are my budget friendly skin care products that I use on a daily basis: . . Cleanser- Clean & Clear Morning Burst & Night Relaxing. . . Toner- Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner . . Acne Treatment- acne.org AHA+ ( Glycolic Acid - 10% . . Moisturizer- Up & Up Aloe Vera Gel . . Serum- Trader Joe's Nourish Antioxident Facial Serum and Spring Valley Hyaluronic Acid serum . . Mask- L’Oréal Detox & Brighten Clay Mask . . Whether you’re spending $5 or $100 on products nothing will replace having a healthy and balanced diet, drinking a lot of water, and letting your skin breathe. What are some of your favorite budget friendly skin care items? 🤗 . . #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #budgeting #frugalbeauty #budget #budgetlife #budgetliving #frugalliving #frugal #frugallife #frugalshopper #intentionalliving #intentional #selflove #skin #beauty #selfcareroutine #intentionalcommunity #skincare #skincareroutine #beautyroutine #selfcare #mentalhealth #throwback #thenandnow #changes #contentment #skincaretips #transformation #natural

There are no rules, so why are you comparing your business to a set of guidelines that someone else made that probably didn’t work for them anyway? 🤔⁣ ⁣ Stop stifling your creativity with focusing on too much that doesn’t serve you. 🙇🏻‍♀️ What works for some won’t work for others. ⁣ ⁣ But let me tell you first hand, comparison will kill your business faster than not having a single client will. ⁣🔪💣⚰️ ⁣ As long as you are doing what you can with what you have been given, then you need to remain confident that the rest will fall into place or fall away entirely. 🙏🏻✨

I got cut off in my stories earlier but as I was saying...being on this financial journey has also encouraged and motivated me to apply that same self-discipline to health this year. Before this year I would only run a handful of times a year. This year, I’ve exercised or mostly run at least 4 times a week the entire year. And I just signed up for a half marathon! I was listening to Dave one day and he said, “if you want something to change, just change.” It was as simple as: all you need to do is decide. So I decided. I decided to eat well and exercise often. And I’ve been able to lose 15 pounds this year and then just (painfully) ran 11.25 miles tonight. Going to stick with it until my half marathon in October!! What other wins have you had in your life because of being on this financial journey?! When did you realize this wasn’t all just about money, but living a better life? . . . . . #moneygoals #moneysmart #daveramseybabysteps #mortgagefreecommunity #debtfreecommunity #financialfreedom #financialpeace #intentionalliving #intentionalcommunity

Day 2 of #10thingstotellyou is “someone who has influenced me is…” . This was a hard one because I’ve been influenced by so many great people! But one of the first names that comes to mind is Elisabeth Elliot. . I first became acquainted with her through reading “In the Shadow of the Almighty,” and was just so encouraged and convicted by her and her husband Jim’s relationship with each other and with the Lord. Through reading that book, and many others since, I saw what it looks like for a woman to be completely devoted to Christ. . Some of the things she went through, like struggling with singleness and long-distance relationships, I could relate to and was encouraged by her example. Other things, like moving to another country and devoting her life to people who were hostile to her, and losing two husbands, I cannot imagine going through. But through it all, she was faithful to the Lord. Through it all, her greatest desires were to know the Lord more deeply and to help others know him as well. . Through reading her books she has become a mentor for me, especially in seasons when I didn’t have older women physically there to observe and learn from. The Lord has used her story in my life in countless ways—I’ve been encouraged to pray more honestly, study and memorize Scripture more faithfully, and hold my plans more freely. . Her legacy has influenced me just as much as people I’ve known in person, and I’m so thankful for the Lord’s work in her life and her faithfulness to share all aspects of it, even the incredibly hard ones. If you’re looking for something to read that will challenge and encourage you spiritually, I highly recommend reading one of her many books! . So, who has influenced you?

Undergraduate degree 👩‍🎓 - Growing up, I was never particularly interested in any career... I knew I liked working with people, and I am an empath, so I looked at a Bachelor of Arts, and literally chose the first degree on the list. There was no method behind my choice, no guidance from my high school, and absolutely zero career prospects from the degree! I was just a 17 year old, trying to navigate the confusing system of university and taking on tens of thousands of debt. I did not understand the true impact of taking on this debt - "HECs debt is normal" 😓 - I was pressured to attend a particular university by my high school. They frowned upon the other universities, and were VERY against you attending TAFE. I was a extremely susceptible and obedient teenager, so just did what was expected of me. The university was at the time ranked one of the best universities in Australia, however its ranking has since dropped dramatically as their graduates aren't workplace ready and therefore can't find jobs - ironic. - My parents tried to talk me out of it, suggested I moved overseas for a year, and come back with some perspective. My dad in particular suggested I go into the degree I'm doing now (hindsight is a great thing 🙄). I ignored them, and started university. Four years later, I came out with $25,000 in debt, and with literally no career options (I want to emphasize here that I am not exaggerating). - After graduation, I definitely spent some time battling with my mental health. I had realised I had taken on a huge amount of debt, with only a piece of paper to show for it. If there is one lesson I can impart, it's that don't go to uni just for the sake of it. Have a plan. Know what career you would like to do and work towards it everyday. A degree does not guarantee you a job - don't go into debt over it.

Earthhaven Ecovillage North Carolina - Part 1: My visit to EARTHHAVEN was four days long & involved meeting so many kind & caring members. My time there ended shortly before Hurricane Florence approached the Carolinas. I spent time helping in the gardens, harvesting for dinners, supporting a few community members with tasks needed, experienced a special Native American Peace ceremony in the flowing Taylor creek connecting me to my roots, attended the friday night community dinner where Alice grilled up fish where I met some more amazing community members, spoke with Diana Leafe Christian about her books and why Earthhaven is such a special and unique Intentional Community amoung many in North America. #ecovillage #earthhaven #nextgennorthamerica #community #intentionalcommunity #ecology #sustainableliving #sustainablefuture #sustainability

It’s neat to see in my travels the kinds of spaces folks can make cozy and home. This little tiny house in Oregon where my friend Steven lives (@svenom / @ourvanmorty ) cost under 4K to build. It’s small, but cozy, warm, and meets basic needs especially if you live in a way where you spend most of your time outside. I really feel like intentional, handmade, and well designed spaces both from an ecological standpoint and a functional/energetic place is super important. Being a HSP (highly sensitive person), space is everything, I’ve realized. It doesn’t take much to make some feel good to be in. Something my friend @christianahedlund said; who is currently studying interior architecture: ‘it’s all about making spaces for the eyes to rest.’ I think about how spaces that hold us, allow us to blossom and thrive, allow us to see within ourselves, tend to our inner places. Having our spaces be only what we really need, having the light right, the colors of earth or whatever makes someone feel good, just makes sense. #tinyhouse #smallspaces #affordableloving #affordabletinyhouse #ontheroad #homesteading #picnic #liveoutside #livesmall #smallspaces #intentionalliving #getoutandgather #intentionalcommunity #oregon #shelter #smallshelter #diyhomedesign #simplicity

hey you 🌸 Yes, you, scrolling through insta… Today is the perfect day to lean in to yourself. And because sometimes we forget to do this or society tells us differently, I want you to know the following: _ + your emotions matter. They deserve to be experienced, rather than suppressed, but they don’t have to rule your life anymore. _ + there is a calm guide that lives inside of you. She is already a part of you & your spirit, and is just waiting for you to reach out. _ + the things, people, situations that frustrate you deserve to be acknowledged. In fact, the very things that upset you the most hold a lot of wisdom. They point you towards boundaries being crossed or personal values not being held. _ + what you want for your life isn’t crazy. Your desires & hopes are good & true. They come from a deep place within you. Trust that. _ and I want you to know, + it is possible to deeply love who you are. But this must start on the inside. And it can start today. 🌸Dear sister, with whichever area above spoke to you the most - today, I give you full permission to lean in.

L'Arche Atlanta is so excited to welcome two new house assistants! First up, we'll introduce you to Katharine "Kat" Bailey. Kat is from Wilson, NC, and a dear friend encouraged her to look into L'Arche due to the joy Kat has found in intentional community and her beliefs in the power of building interdependent relationships. Kat says, "I decided to start this next chapter of my life with L'Arche because who would not want to spend their time learning and benefiting from the gifts of John, Corbin, Terry, Patrick, and the multitude of incredible people who are involved in the L'Arche community?" Welcome, Kat!! We're so glad you're here! #LArcheAtlanta . . . . #larchelife #imaginecommunutydifferently #intentionalcommunity #makeadifference #abilitynotdisability #morealikethandifferent #choosetoinclude #communitylife

Hi everyone, we are now opening our doors to new families. We invite you to be part of "WeJourney". It's designed to give the possibility to young families to experience living at La Cite together for a year (fully sponsored by members of La Cite). "WeJourney" offers a year of immersion in our community, learning, feeling and experimenting a whole new way of living.

Celebrating @nicolehmarchant birthday weekend with community, a warm fire, some spotty sleep, and adventure. It’s been a journey the last two years, exploring the possibility of intentional community with these four families. @capandfeatherphoto and I got clear this year that it wasn’t our time to move towards this strategy for intimacy in community, though it continues to be my highest life value. Comment below if you’ve discovered a nourishing way to create meaningful community in a nuclear set up so we all can learn! #humanity #supergivers #community #intentionalcommunity #intentionalliving #empathynow

When your thoughts can’t keep up with your heart - you can’t imagine how you got here but you did - when things keep going up and you’re still learning how to let go - accept and keep flying. Capacity is an interesting thing - jumping - dreaming and creating bigger. What is impossible? . . . . . . . . #healthylifestyle #healthymind #healthymindandbody #healthymindset #setgoals #intentionalliving #intentionalcommunity #talktome #lifetalk #lifetalks #happiness #balance #balancedandbeautiful #balancedlife #makeadifference #healthy #healthybrain #create #createmagic #heal #healyourself #loveyourbody #feedyoursoul #bereal #healthandwellness #motivationalspeaker #influencer #instagram #instagraminfluencer #healer

It's been Real. The kind of beauty I didn't know existed. 3 different workshops in 5 days, all totally different. So much healing , so many beautiful friendships created all guided by spirit. 🌿 These Workshops in #Boise were purely created from a space of healing within my own journey. This soul space led me here with Grace, surrendering and to serve Mother Earth as I called upon all wisdom keepers. 🙏🏼🌿 Connecting all soul fragments to provide clarity to my body, mind and spirit in the Holistic Sanctuary I provide for others. Before my eyes I'm honored I've experienced the healing within each person. I've personally found so transformative the beauty within the energy and currency. I've cried and felt each heart as an empath and now going to return with Intentional retreat for a day of rest. Thank you Boise for the wonderations. I love you and hope to be back 🔜💎👏🏼🌱🙏🏼😘✨💓 . . . . . #moonvibes #holisticbabe #energyigniter #lovewins #compassion #lightworkers #guidedbyspirit #trust #flowwithin #higherconsciousness #intentionalcommunity #intentionallife #livewithpurpose #showupeveryday #loveisenergy #boiseidaho #mothernature #weareallone . . #grounding #higherself #showup #staygrounded #earthing #intuitivehealer #ancestorsspeak #ancestral #ancestralhealing #wombwellness

Alright friends, here we go with #10thingstotellyou! Today’s prompt: I grew up… . I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma, and I loved it. Most businesses closed at 8pm, Walmart was where you ran into people, and the “mall” was used for power-walking more than shopping. . Because there wasn’t much to do for entertainment I spent a lot of time reading, exploring outside, and just hanging out with friends. And when I hung out with friends we had to make our own fun. So we talked, drove around, played games, and actually got to know each other. . Granted, it was a simpler time. We all had flip phones, and most of us had dial-up internet so we weren’t as “connected” as kids are today. I know, I sound like a grandma. But life was just slower, people were kind, and it didn’t take more than 15 minutes to get out of town and into the woods. . When most of my friends started talking about how they couldn’t wait to leave and live somewhere more exciting, I never understood it. I knew I would leave for college, and probably wouldn’t live in the same town my whole life, but I wasn’t eager to get out. . I always loved the feeling of roots—of being surrounded by people who had known me my whole life, who knew me in my awkward stages and loved me anyway. I loved the familiarity of knowing how to get everywhere without needing directions and knowing what little shops to go to for each specific need. . Now that I’ve lived in several different cities and moved to Texas, I remember other things that I didn’t realize I loved until I experienced something different. Like the fact that there were just as many cows as people, that you could see the stars at night, and that there were two Braum’s in town 😉 . I love where I live now, and I’m so thankful for the person I am because of experiences I’ve had living in different places, but where I grew up will always be a huge part of why I am the way I am! . Your turn. How would you finish the sentence “I grew up…”?

Fear and doubt will argue against taking confident actions, sounding entirely justified in keeping you stuck. It's just noise. What are you telling yourself today? If it’s anything less than encouraging than knock it off. Want to explore those thoughts? I want to coach you.

Sometimes life isn’t pleasant to us. Sometimes we walk through seasons that seem never ending and all consuming. Sometimes the air around you isn’t enough and the weight of the thoughts in your head push your body to the ground like an anchor that never lets up. Maybe the anxiety that’s in you feels like it’s controlling you. Maybe the fear of what you don’t know is enough to keep you from dreaming. ••• I’ve been there. I’ve thought about crashing my car. I’ve thought about disappearing. I’ve had times where sleeping was more attractive than living. ••• But I’m here to tell you - there’s more. Keep waking up. Keep pushing forward. Keep breathing even if it takes all the energy you have that day. There is more to life than this. There are people - good, loving people - who are around you. There is a God who has never taken His eye off of you. He is waiting for your call. Open your eyes. Look. Taste. See. And strip off the things that are making you sick to your stomach. Be. Just be. There is more.

bruderhofcommunities

Regrann from @natgeo - Photo by @martinschoeller | Religion: Bruderhof. Michelle Hinkey: ""I grew up in a Christian home with my parents and five siblings. I attended schools run by the Bruderhof, which is a Christian communal movement. But believing in and following Christ is not something anyone else can do for me. I had to discover my own beliefs and faith. Unlike most Christian denominations, the Bruderhof doesn’t have consecrated church buildings. When the weather is nice, we often worship outdoors. In our community in Harlem, we have a rooftop deck, where we hold many of our worship meetings. As it says in Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." Jesus told his disciples that there are two great commandments. First: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. And secondly: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” My first task is to love and serve God, but my love to him is expressed through the love I show my neighbors. The best way for me to love God and my neighbors is by living in a Bruderhof community. For my community, the Sermon on the Mount is particularly important. In it, Jesus teaches us how to live a life of love, humility, service, purity, and forgiveness. Jesus also talks a lot about the Kingdom of God. Some people make this out just to be what’s beyond the grave. It’s not! It’s a blueprint, a model for how we ought to live. It is a kingdom of justice, of peace, of love. We can’t force it into being, but we can try our best to live it out in our own lives. I think every day I lose my faith and find it again. Sometimes it is hard to believe in a good God when I see all the suffering and problems in the world today, or even if I’m just having a bad day. But then I look around and see God’s work and beautiful creation in so many amazing and interconnected ways, people, friends, children, nature, trees, microorganisms. So I have to believe even if I don’t understand it all!" - #regrann #bruderhof #community #communityliving #christiancommunity #intentionalcommunity

How is your self-relationship? Are you cultivating a deeper relationship with your body and mind everyday? Being and moving through your life needn’t be an endurance test, or a never ending ‘home’ renovation. . We can partake in our self-evolution in gentle, conscious and intentional ways, through tools like breath work and body movement. Today I walked by the ocean and took time to enjoy the fresh air and pastel sky; my sight and senses were delighted and nourished. Tomorrow will likely be completely different experience, one that might involve weights and the gym environment…?! . This inquiry and inspiration came from Black and the Moon’s beautiful and poignant #OracleofOddities. I was mindfully shuffling, no question in mind and all three cards flew out. I sat with them for a moment, considered their message, closing down my eyes and letting their words wash over me and drift in and out of conscious thought… . Growth. It’s happening everyday. Wether we’re measuring ourselves or not, change is occurring within us and around us, just check your nails or hair for proof! . But is the growth in our preferred direction? Is it sustainable? Will it be for betterment and provide a stable and secure rung on the the ladder of life? . How do we know something is stable? How can we be sure it will be reliable or resilient to changes or adjustments in the process or course of action? . The answer is awareness. What is awareness? It could be as simple as noticing... . How are you noticing or witnessing yourself as you evolve, shift and change in daily life? Is it something that worries you or do you let just unfold, resigned to forces beyond your control? . There is no right or wrong answer… Just a deepening self-relationship that, cultivated over time, reveals your truth. A truth that will safely steer your ship north, with greater ease over time.

Y’all😱 I am SO excited to finally tell you about the #secretproject I’ve been working on since July🎉😍 Introducing my “How to Intentionally Create Routines” digital workbook! 📱📝 This workbook is 50 pages full of exercises that will help you create any routine that works for *you*. No more copying someone’s routine that you found on Pinterest and having it work for a week or two only. No more feeling like you’re fumbling in the dark when it comes to creating routines. Just a step-by-step guide for creating routines that work for you and your family. Now, the workbook won’t launch until September 28th but I can promise you that if you’re even a little intrigued, you’re going to want to go get on my email list right now. You can follow the link in my bio to do so! What questions do you have about the workbook? Leave a comment below or shoot me a DM, I’m happy to answer them! • • • • • #dailyroutines #routines #morningroutine #morning_vibes #morning_routines #morningroutinechallenge #challenged #LOLSmorningchallenge #intentionalliving #intentionalcommunity #minimalism_

I really love that social media allows us to meet people we might not otherwise, but I don’t love that it can be hard to truly get to know each other. . Granted, a screen will never be the same as a good, face-to-face conversation, but that doesn’t mean it’s a lost cause. I think there are a lot of ways we can and should improve how we approach social media. So, with that in mind, I’ve decided to spend the next ten days focusing on getting to know each other better. . I can’t take credit for this. @Laura.tremaine started the “10 Things to Tell You” challenge last week and although I’m late to the game, I still think it’s worth doing. I’m posting the complete list of prompts in case you want to do it yourself, or you can always just follow along and join the conversation here! . The goal is to be able to share the things about yourself that you want people to know, that will really help them know you, but that never come up naturally in conversation. . I was planning to start tonight, but my 20-minute Sunday afternoon power nap turned into a 4-hour coma, so my brain can barely put these sentences together. Life happens 🤷🏼‍♀️. So I’ll be starting tomorrow! . But in the meantime, I’d love to know if you have any tips for going below the surface in your relationships? Specifically in your long-distance relationships or friendships that start on social media. Community is one of the greatest things in the world, and it can also be the hardest to cultivate (for me, anyway!). But I talk pretty frequently about the value of doing hard things, and this is one of those hard things that is SO worth the effort. . So, what are some ways you go deep with people? Or if you don’t feel successful in that area, what’s the biggest hurdle?

Australian Shepherds 🐶 - For all those lovely people asking what they are/look like, here they are. - I found out on the weekend that one of my friend's friends breeds Australian Shepherds. It was nice to chat to her about their temperament, and the pros and cons of them. - We also chatted costs. Apparently the puppies can go for $2,000 depending on their markings. On top of that there's vet bills, insurance, dog food, dog toys, bedding, training, and then miscellanous things that I can't even account for now. - Whilst I would love to buy one in 2020, it looks like it's going to get pushed out further and further. For now though, I'm going to admire from afar 😍

Right now you can choose to be more than you've ever been before. You're not defined by your past. You're defined by your present. Act as if every moment is a new opportunity to define yourself because it is. If you did something terrible yesterday, you are not forever lost. If you did something great yesterday, you don't get to take today off. Stay focused. Stay humble. These messages are just as much for me as they are for anybody else reading. 💚 #wwoof #workaway #worktrade #highraw #hclf #rawtill4 #rawveganism #fruitarianism #veganism #plantbased #juicecleansing #herbs #hollistic #health #naturalhealth #fasting #dryfasting #spirituality #yoga #meditation #nature #returntonature #backtonature #selfsustainability #community #intentionalcommunity #minimalism

Sunday night blues?😨 Just one of life’s certainties like taxes right? Even though I love running #RockPaperRoses I struggle with motivation some days too. . . . But I genuinely feel inspired by the many women and men out there showing up everyday for their dreams- everyone is working hard💪🏽(just today a friend told me of her launch date for her new venture, so proud!💜) . . . I’ve got a particularly busy week as we’re also visiting lots of prospective secondary schools with my daughter. Life doesn’t stop right? But we can totally do this! Living intentionally and to the full is SO rewarding. So grab a glass of wine/hot drink/something stronger...Sunday night-Monday morning have got nothing on us!🙅🏽‍♀️ And how’s this for some Sunday night planning- talking about ideas for work wear jewellery on our Stories/ Highlights, to help you prep for Monday morning. . . . 📸 @kateluscombephotography (another amazing hard working lady who inspires me) . . . #smallbizowner #motivation #sundaynightblues #sunday #worklifebalance #worklife #entrepreneurlife #femtrepreneur #mumpreneurs #mycreativelife #mycreativebiz #blackandwhitephotography #intentionalliving #intentionalcommunity #risingtidesociety #jewellery #jewelry #jewelrygram #bracelets #sterlingsilverjewelry #style #stylebloggers

The Veterans Village Kins Community is developing Hemp Growing, CBD Producing Veteran Village Kins Communities in North Carolina, Florida, Kentucky and several other states similar to the 500-acre demonstration community being built in Arizona. We currently have 4,500 acres (and counting) of land north of Kingman, Arizona where he's building a Veteran Village on 500 of those acres that would consist of 160 lots of 2 1/2 acre parcels for Kins Domains (eco-villages). Each parcel would grow 1 acre of hemp as well as having organic gardens, natural beehives, a pond, a living fence and other elements that make up a Kins Domain. An additional 100 acres of hemp will be grown in each one of these 500-acre communities which will also include a 100,000 square-foot hemp (CBD) processing facility. The revenue from fifty of those acres is used to support that community. The revenue from the other fifty acres of hemp will be used to purchase 2 additional 500-acre parcels of land, thus keeping up with the needs of a large number of veterans that exist now and in the future. #VeteransVillage #HempActivist #hempoil #cbdoil #sustainableliving #hemp #sustainableliving #intentionalcommunity #vegaslocal #spreadpeaceusa #kinsdomain

It’s amazing to see how people find their tribe. . This weekend, we hopped on a ferry to attend the West Coast Community Conference; an event focused on intentional communities, housing and people interested in the idea of cooperative living. . Tim had the opportunity to present @gocobuy to many folks that were already pursuing the path of co-housing. . We met really nice people, and did fun activities all focused on how to live in intentional communities. .

The dryness of Utah kept my nose bleeding for three days but luckily I ended up at Mystic Hot Springs which kept me moist haha. I stayed in the tubs all night and all day because they don’t close! This July sunrise really made the steam pop and I’m glad I took the time to explore. My daughter enjoyed it as well since she’s part fish. Such a great place to experience and everyone there is so genuine! There was also an outdoor library spot that lit up my heart :) 🌅 🌄 . . . . . . . . #utah #mystichotsprings #water #hotsprings #beauty #sunrise #desert #explore #neverstopexploring #adventuretime #wanderlustlife #enjoythejourney #littleexplorers #intentionalcommunity #gratitude #vaca #kidapprovedvacations #kidapproved #landscape #steam #coolplaces #mustvisit #hippiehomeschoolers #mustsee #sunrise_madness #heartopeners #soultravel

its.somedaytoday

If It's Someday, Today was a person - who would they be? I sat and did a classic marketing exercise a few days ago, writing out who my platform is and then who my audience is, humanizing them by giving them names and ages and struggles and desires (in case you're wondering, IST's name is Johanna). Basically, getting to know them on a deeply intimate level so that I can find out: who am I writing/creating to/for?  what is the voice I want to use/who is speaking? what is relevant to my intended audience? When I reviewed what I had written the following day (giving my subconcious time to mull it over), I realized that IST/Johanna is the woman I want to become, and the audience profiles reflect various aspects of who I see myself as right now. When I told this to my coach/mentor @stephaniedawnelizabeth she said, "we create what we need." It's almost as if I'm trying to write to myself from myself, for myself - and hoping that along the way I find some people who are walking the same path, asking the same questions, and experiencing aspects of the same journey that we are on in achieving our dreams. So thanks for being that, and thank you for being in this together 💛 #itssomedaytoday #DreamAchievers • • • • #intentionalliving #intentional #beintentional #intentionaliving #intentionalcommunity #intentionalcreativity #liveintentionally #purpose #entrepreneur #intentionalbusiness #empoweringwomen #inspiration #empoweryourself #empowerhour #liveauthentic #theartofslowliving #thatsdarling #livethelittlethings #nothingisordinary #searchwandercollect #myeverydaymagic #thehappynow #welivetoexplore #simplethingsmadebeautiful #aquietlife #asecondofwhimsey
