There's a reason they're called growing pains... #challengeyourself #growingpains #grow #learn #scareyourself
Despite America’s dubious colonial era decisions, historical shortcomings, questionable global maneuvering, bad political choices, talentless and unbelievably rich celebrities (Kardashian), and shitty presidents (you know who you are), I am unabashedly proud and count my blessings to be an American woman. Hindsight is always 20/20. Growing up is hard. #memorialdayweekend #america #americanwoman #learning #growing #weekendvibes #instagood #inspiration #patriotic #keeponkeepingon #dontstopcantstop #americanflag #ny #growingpains #patriotic #blessed

At 7 months and almost 100 lbs, Cody is one big puppy. But when they tell me, “They grow so fast”, I wonder if they ever really grow at all - the tantrums do get old after a while, but not this puppy! #saintbernardpuppy #growingpuppy #growingpains #dogdays #dogtantrum

When my dad died, I was 22 and most of my friends could not imagine losing a parent. I felt completely alone and misunderstood and reacted by pushing a lot of people away for saying the wrong thing or not saying anything at all. . . Flash forward to today, seven years later, and I'm witnessing myself experience similar emotions around dealing with my own health. Most people in my life are very healthy (yay yogis!) and hey - I'm only 29! But the truth is, many people aren't able to be there for me in the way I expect or want them to.. simply because they don't know how. . . And as I start to pull away, I'm reminded of what happened before. I felt like a victim then and I don't want to fall into victim mentality again. I'm not sure exactly what I need or what to do, but I am in really painful awareness that my automatic reaction is not right. And so I continue to be kind to myself, show up on my mat, and try my best to let people stay in my life - imperfect and all. . . . . . #progressnotperfection #perfectlyimperfect #staytogrow #growingpains #grief #letitgo #victimnomore #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease #yogajournal #myyogajourney #myspiritualjourney #mypractice #thisisyoga #offthemat #practiceandalliscoming #realtalk #losingaparent #myyogamyrules #putyouralmondon #almondon
💙 We loved sharing our year with you all: ups AND downs! Saying our goodbyes was SO TOUGH. Some of my kiddos refused to put their book bags on to go home or leave when the bus was called. Lots of tears fell, and I already had a text from one of my littles. 😂💙 First year teachers: Be prepared to be wildly unprepared. The emotional and psychological needs that some students are going to come in with become burdens that you will find yourself carrying to ease their load. You will become family. You'll have your "favorites," but please make sure everyone knows they're loved. Some kids will become barnacles. In my opinion, that's ok. They need your attention. You're going to be EXHAUSTED. You're going to probably cry a lot (speaking from experience). You're probably going to laugh SOOO hard at some of the candid comments you'll hear. Your students will probably be miniature reflections of you. I've raised up a mighty band of patriots by teaching them history and respect for the military because that's my passion. Since I loved it, they loved it. They became my kids (and yes, that means I hit those "WHY ARE YOU BEING LIKE THIS?" moments). I let them in on some minor "private life" insight, and that helped us bond. IF YOU LEARN ANYTHING FROM THIS, let it be the simple idea to build a bond with all of your kids. That bond will get them through "teaching moments." If it weren't for that bond we have, we would've had an even tougher year. Make sure to take care of yourself on the weekends. Relax, destress, and get ready for your next battles that you'll meet on Monday. Also, when you feel like you can't go on anymore, YOU CAN. Aside from you having the ability to, you WILL... because those kids need you. #firstyearteacher #elementaryschool #mykids #lifelessons #growingpains #newadventures #family #GoNavy #military #patriots
Occasionally I’ll have chest pain, and I automatically get concerned and spend an hour going back-and-forth between “is this what heart burn feels like?” and “I’m too young to have a heart attack.” In the fall, something happened that I was really sad about and I remember sitting at the dining table, staring blankly at the wall with my hand on my chest wondering if I should be worried about the chest pain that I was having - with absolutely zero awareness that the chest pain was actually my heart hurting. • It wasn’t until I really checked in with my body and allowed myself to think about what had occurred the few days prior that I realized that my heart was actually (literally) aching. I had been avoiding feeling my feelings and emotions at all costs and my body was not having it anymore. Doing what it needed to do to get my undivided attention, the pain in my chest was begging me to stop for a second, be human, cry, and crawl through the trenches of feeling the feelings. Even still, with all the work I’ve done, I fight that shit like crazy sometimes. Ughhh. So I did it... I laid down on my bed and I let myself cry. • I’m writing about this because I was feeling a similar feeling the other day - that aching - and I caught myself trying to talk me into happiness. Everything’s fine, you have a million things to be grateful for, you’re healthier than to let something so tiny upset you... • Where did I come up with the idea that I need to feel great all the time? Why not let myself experience the “good” and the “bad”? I’m allowed to have feelings, opinions and an array of emotions. Why not express them and move through it? I’m a coach and an activist, I know that it starts with healing myself and creating peace in my own mind and body first. • Really opening my heart to men is new for me (yup, this is about dating) and I am constantly having to pry open the claws of life that want to close around my heart to protect it. • I guess my point is that your body is talking to you, and if you give it the chance to, it will tell you what you need. Listen. And allow yourself to feel and heal. Pain is part of growth, and feeling it is brave and beautiful. #isquaredteam

Last Friday of life’s current chapter. #bittersweet #growingpains #neversettle
Now that I am living in my #sparkle , I am unwilling to settle or stay stuck or hide behind #fear or stay in a #comfortzone bc it’s the easier thing to do. I’d rather challenge myself & move through fear so I can dance in the #authenticity & #truth on the other side. #miracles 🙏 #newbeginnings #authentic #honest #integrity #unstoppable #invincible #powerful #growthmindset #goodtogreat #doingthedeal #oprah #wwhl #comfort #growingpains #sparkleon #sparkle #ahamoment www.unpackedsparkle.com
Comfort is easy. Comfort is lazy. Growth requires courage. Growth requires change. Growth requires effort. Growth requires you to exceed and discard your standing comfort level in order to receive and embody your utmost potential! 🌱✨ . What’s the worst thing that could happen if you became your best, clearest, most efficient self? 😜💜 . . . . #krissyabooboo #growth #ascension #babysteps #onedayatatime #courage #strength #epiphany #comfort #awakening #growingpains #occult #magic #kundalini #mantra #affirmations #forgiveness #satnam #progressnotperfection #intuition #meditation #reiki #energy #angels #healyourself #health #love #cosmicrevelations
Have you ever felt a curiously sharp pain? A reaction from psilocybin Cyphering through your brain While all alone Suffering Wondering Are you going insane? A pain, that comes from being empty inside. Get over it You're overthinking See a therapist. can't no such thing tried that But still the pain won't subside. The air is too thick, no One can hear me speak. So I write my thoughts down With a cheap pen, blue ink. The contrast makes my Fingers feel as cold as ice. There is no warmth left In my veins, so I guess Ice will have to suffice. Why is it that no one is around To fill this empty space? Am I going about things all wrong? Will I forevermore be Trapped in this constant race? I want to leave this place Without a trace Of the tears that have fallen Out of my shallow eyes, Down my numb face. I feel like I am stuck...FUCK where is this even going ? Why am I so down ? This pain is only from growning. #poetry #travelingwithvices #spokenword #poetrybook #poet #growingpains #northerncalifornia #poetsparadise
Arthur needed a new bigger house. It's only 6 inches longer and 4 inches taller but seems twice a big as the old one. #biggerthanexpected #brittanydog #growingpains #Imissmytinypuppy

🌫The rain is supposed to be soporific but lately it has me dwelling in my thoughts. I fall asleep faster to it’s sound but these past days, as I close my eyes, I begin to dwell in past memories that make me cringe. I’m trying not to let these unpleasant thoughts deprive my sleep so I’m taking the #savasana approach. #meditation Relaxing my body, then mind, until I can slowly enter my deep slumber. I’m not fighting it just letting it pour. 🌧 #comeatmemind #letitgrow
Sometimes he’s my best friend, other times my hunky husband. He’s the one that drives me insane (like this morning) and the one that delights me. He’s the father of my children and my life partner. I love him deeply. . I have definitely wanted to throw in the towel. I’ve had hots for other guys. Sometimes the love is passionate and sometimes it’s painfully stale. . There are bitter bickering days and some that are sweet like honey. . I still don’t totally understand how this marriage thing works. How have we made it this far? . I am grateful we both like to talk. We both value healing and personal growth. We respect ourselves and each other. This helps. A lot. . But perhaps more than anything is trust in seasons. The space to let our relationship change and evolve. . Our love now is vastly different from our 22 year old version. Much freedom came when I stopped trying to keep it permanent. (Because when it changes you can feel like something’s wrong but it’s really just growing pains.) . We’ve had to be brave and say ‘hey I’m not happy right now’ or ‘yikes, this isn’t working!’ And not be threatened by that. I don’t enjoy these moments (damn they are hard) but they ARE A GIFT - an opportunity to learn and grow and heal. . Let your relationship breath. Let it be messy. Be honest and curious. Make space to feel. Reach out and listen. Expect change. Let go of the fairytale. . When we got married I refused to say “until death do we part.” I couldn’t promise that; it wasn’t true for me. I did promise to show up, do my best and always reach for love. I’m proud to say I’ve kept that promise. . Thomas, I am so grateful for you and all muddy moments. Thank you for you and this wonderful garden we are growing. . For those out there in long term relationships - how have you survived/thrived? . . . . . #marriage365 #realmarriage #letitbemessy #truth #honestlove #familylove #familyadventure #adventuresinmarriage #youdrivemecrazy #gratefulforyou #growingpains #expectchange #unfurlingheart #reallove #keepingitreal #fiercelove #fiercegrace #fiercegracecollective #lifewithkids #lifetogether
You’re going to outgrow the friends who were secretly holding you back. You’re going to grow distant because you’re moving forward instead of standing in their comfort zone. You’re not loosing friends. Your growth is just exposing the enemies you’ve befriended. Keep growing towards a better you 💛 #friends #growth As we grow, unfortunately, so do the competitions and the pettiness...it’s inevitable. Not all on your team root for you. Some may want you to do well but not better than them. Real friends, who support you are secure in themselves and their abilities and will cheer and champion for you as much as they do for themselves. #growingpains

|• #Dreamer "Dreams Can Be Deferred But Only You Can Deny Yourself Of Them!"•| #ACChronicles #Quotes 💁🏽‍♀️ I dream of a certain life. It's one where I inspire, encourage, and even motivate the next woman of any size, color, or background to chase after their heart's desires. I dream of being able to walk in my own confidence, motivation, and inspiration so that I'm not just talking it but also walking it. 👑 I'm not one to settle and most recently I was. Settling for what I thought I had to, settling for what I knew I didn't need, want, or deserve but something somewhere in this work in progress of a mind I posses, I was settling: but to GOD be the glory. For HIS strength moved me. It moved me back into the focus of my #DREAMS ... #DESIRES ... DESTINY 🙏🏽💪🏽🙌🏽 This #FlashBackFriday Photo was taken by @rjonesphotography right before I found out I was carrying PRINCESS DALLACE😍 I knew for sure I wouldn't model anymore but Rick told me I would be back again. He was right!😩I'm happy about that.🖤 Life will tell you that you have to go, be, or live one way but GOD gives us visions, purpose, dreams, & HIS WORD to show us that: NO! You are worthy, able, & called to live this way. 🤞🏽💅🏽👑 I THINK I'LL TAKE MY CHANCES ON FOLLOWING THAT🤷🏽‍♀️I'm asking all of my dreamers to please;🗣"DONT QUIT YOUR DAYDREAM!" 😙 #Life #Lessons #Growing #Glowing #Queening #GodsPlan #GrowingPains #GrowingGains #Focus #Motivate #ModelBehavior #CurvesRock

I’ve been there before, on both ends. #GrowingPains
Most times, when dealing with life's challenges it actually isn't a challenge but a reminder to surrender... a reminder to trust your path... a reminder to have faith and take the leap, the Universe/Creator/Goddess/God etc. has your back! If I know nothing else, I know this. #faith #Goddess #Creator #God #leapoffaith #growingpains #surrender #gowithyourflow #justkeepswimming #believe
This has become more real to me in the last week! Just being TRANSPARENT! I personally wish people overall would be. #growth #leadership #transparency #keepingitreal #growingpains
I did about 20 minuets of yoga/stretching this morning. Its defiantly not a regular practice for me. As of late, my anxiety and rapid thoughts have caused me cry uncontrollably. The anxiety triggers my board line tendancies and I just have become, internally, a mess. Theres a ton of financial bullshit I'm trying to deal with and a lot of emotional anger and resentments. I felt my body calling out to me, needing breathe, needing care, needing patience. After doing some mindful breathing and stretching, I felt like a whole new person. The things we learn when we BREATHE and LISTEN. Please forgive yourselves my fellow humams, please be PATIENT with yourself. • • • #yoga #growingpains #flow #medicine #movementmedicine #healing #breathe #dirtwire #sacredcircle

Lo miraba y lo miraba y se me olvidaron todas las razones por las que siempre he dicho que no puedo encargarme de otra vida y sólo podía ver a un bebé que me iba a necesitar otra vez..."
