This weekends lesson. I have known and learned not to have a expections if I dont want to be disappointed. But know I have learned resentment can also happen.
2 years ago, I started a beautiful fall tradition. I decided to host 2 events per year: one in the spring and one in the fall.
My first fall event was a disaster revenue-wise. It wounded me so badly that I decided to not host an event for an ENTIRE year.
I spent that year going to other people’s events and learning as much as I could. I also looked at what I could do differently.
This year, I hosted one event in the spring with almost $10k in revenue from 3 attendees! My fall event is this weekend. Eek!
Moving forward, I’ll only be having one event per year and it’ll be in the fall in the month of October (I already have next year’s dates!).
The lesson here is it’s ok to be wounded and give yourself time to heal from something that didn’t work out. When you give yourself that time, you come back stronger and better than ever. ❤️
P.S. There’s still time to get into this fall tradition! Today is the LAST day you can get your ticket to Ads Made Easy Live and I’ll cover your hotel for you and a friend! Click the link in my bio.
Sadly, our Ottawa Street location is now closed. Thanks to all who came, supported and enjoyed our food this weekend. We tried our best and I'm incredibly proud of what we did in this location. Every season we got busier and busier, but alas, greedy landlords won this time around. #lessonlearned
We'll be doing something else soon, and no worries, we still have our food truck! See you soon, and thanks so much to you all!
love the look of black on natural wood 🌿
If you’re having trouble making decisions, get clear on your values. Once you have that clarity, the opportunities that are for you will seem crystal clear. ✨ #motivationmonday
A poem for everyone and no one.
I can deal with anything,
if i know where i stand.
Thank you for making me
finally understand. There's things I want to tell you,
about what you had to say.
but I just dont know how,
I can make you feel this way,
Instead, I stay quiet.
Instead, I hold my tongue.
But in the nights dark silence,
tears still come.
This burden I will carry,
I learned when I was young,
Instead, be quiet,
Instead, hold your tongue.
Because worse can surely come.
They say all is fair in love and war...
Crimes of the heart hurt more.
Little can become nothing.
People walk away.
Pick and choose your battles,
Wars are won that way.
I'm finally loving me.
So that means I'm gaining ground,
With what is and what will be.
In all lifes ups and downs.
And in the nights dark silence,
if the tears return,
I know that I'll get passed it
and mark it lesson learned. KAT😼
Love of the best parts of visiting my parents farm? Loving on the donkeys. I wasn't able to get up on my donkey (yup, I'm that out of shape) but I was to get up on one of the shorter girls.
Notice the death grip on her mane. I broke my wrist when I fell off one of the donkeys in college. I still may be stupid enough to hop on bareback, but at least I hold on tighter!!!
The single, most hardest lesson, I had to learn. I NEVER expected it or saw it coming. Even worse is letting go of something you never intended to let go. Be it a friend, lover, work and or family. Letting go of a bond is tough. All we can do is move on and shower the world with Love. Because love is the only thing that heals.

I woke up this morning begging God to give me strength to get through the week. I'm exhausted. Physically tired and run down. Every weekend I think I'll get enough rest to allow myself to heal, but I don't. I've been in an endless cycle and it's time to figure out how to get out. So as I dragged myself out of bed, for the third time this morning, I saw a small stray of light peeping through the curtains. That's all it took. A little bit of light. I opened the curtain to see the sun rising. I've missed watching the sunrise and enjoying a cup of coffee with my Lord. Don't get me wrong, I've been up early enough to see the sunrise and I've had my coffee with the Lord, BUT I hadn't take the time to sit and watch. Maybe that's His way of answering my prayer. How to stop the cycle...take some time to sit and watch the special moments God creates throughout the day.
Rock bottom is a scary place but a purposeful one. You lose all that you are to become who you should be! .
Embrace rock bottom. Learn and grow into better person because of it! Trust me you will rise again!!
What do you think do money has nothing to do with happiness or money is necessary in order to be happy
Comment below your thoughts
Silly me always giving my all to you, Broke me down to build for you every time, and if love wants to call I know I can’t depend on you for nothing at all you let me down EVERYTIME. Should’ve known it was a matter of time surely you would change your mind, you had me thinking that he was better than me, there goes another lie.. Truthfully I tried to accept your lies, but it changed me. There was a time I would of died just to prove that I was yours for life, but now is the time we put it out there we can’t be friends anymore.. I hope you’re happy without me the truth is I’m tired of falling for you, I’d give my heart to beat for you. I just wanted you to save me, but you never saved me all you did was play me. I just wanted you to save me. You tried to take my heart with you wanted to break me, all I ever wanted you to do was SAVE ME! 😔 #lessonlearned

Rock n Roll Denver Half complete.
I’m not sure how I feel about this race yet. Still going through it in my head, which is a dangerous place to be.
It all kinda went downhill early on in the miles and that really bugs me. I had to stop at a porta potty early on in the race, after I was keeping up with the 2:35 pacer. The porta potty lines were horribly unkind throughout this race and I waited for 10 minutes. By the time I was done, I saw the 3:00 pacer pass. The husband met me at various places and saw me and encouraged me to catch up which I knew I could. So I tried and I got pretty close as I saw the 2:40 pacer but me kickin into high gear, which I’m not used to doing really, caused a bonk around mile 7ish. And then some dry heaving around mile 8/9ish. I was light headed and my head hurt and I was crazy nauseated. So I walked. I saw the 3:00 pacer pass me and I was defeated. Thought this would be my very first med tent race visit. But after finishing I sat on the ground and drank some water and chocolate milk. Looked at my arms and hands and they were swollen beyond belief.
This happened before this year at Salt Lake (minus my asthma). I am finding when I push myself during races, I run out of gas. Gonna need to rethink my fueling strategy. I take salt sticks and gels during the race with the water handed out but I think bringing along my own drink fuel might be the better bet. Can’t drink Gatorade or Powerade, that stuff tears up my tummy.
The current fuel plan worked for a few years but my body is apparently needing more.
Thank goodness this is the last race for 2018 and I don’t start training again till January.
Gotta get back on track and find what works again. Looking into a Dietician this week, anyone know any in Denver area? Lol, but seriously do ya? 👍🏼 Thanks to everyone who texted and to my amazing hunny for cheering me on & running to 4-5 different points of the race just to see me. 😍😍 #theresalwaysnextyear #runnerslife #rocknrolldenver #supersteph #keepshowingup #icrossedthefinishline #barely #thatonehurt #lessonlearned #rundenver #runcolorado
HAZOP&HAZID are just a preliminary screening in "Safety Case" development, will you spend a huge amount of money for something that hasn't been properly quantified yet?😊 #lessonlearned
Jadi ceritanya hari ini disekolah, anak-anak Nursery ada Cooking Class. Kita bikin ‘Hamburger’. Kalo ditanya, “Anak-anak suka gak kegiatan Cooking Class?”
1. Ada yg dari awal udh semangat banget mau cooking.
2. Ada yg dari awal udh blg “aku ga mau cooking”.
3. Ada yg mau ikutan Cooking Class tapiiiii... ga mau pake apron.
Dan... masih banyak reaksi lainnya ketika ditanya “Anak-anak suka gak kegiatan Cooking Class?”.
Pas makanan-nya udah jadi & anak-anak foto sama hasil karya mereka, yg sebenernya masih banyak dibantu, pasti rasanya ga cuma Ms-nya yang happy, Orang Tua pasti ikutan happy.
Tapi tau gak?? Dibalik foto-foto lucu nan gemas itu, ada kelas yg kayak kapal pecah. Ada saos tomat yg tumpah dimeja, ada keju yg berantakan dimana-mana, ada muka anak-anak yang belepotan karena makanin saos tomat dan berbagai macam kericuhan lainnya. 🤪😂🙈😱😝
Kesel gak?? Jawabannya, ENGGAK! Kita as a teacher, suka ikutan ketawa bareng anak-anak kalo mereka numpahin saos gak sengaja & kita bilang “It’s ok friend”.
Capek gak beberes?? Jawabannya, pasti ada capek-nya lah. Tapiiii... anak-anak juga bantuin beberes. Mereka udh tau dimana musti taruh ‘mat’ trus cuci tangan sendiri, ambil tissue buat lap meja, ambil sapu kecil buat nyapu-in remahan keju yg berantakan. Seru??? PASTI, banget malahan.
Sering banget saya denger orang komentar “Kamu guru TK? Waahh pasti kamu sabar banget ya sama anak-anak” 🤪😅 sabar itu relatif. Cuma yang pasti, berurusan sama anak-anak, musti punya rasa toleransi yg BESSAAARRRR & PANJAAANNGGG.
Men-toleransi kalo mereka melakukan kesalahan beerrrr-ulang-ulang.
Men-toleransi kalo mereka rewel tanpa sebab.
Men-toleransi kalo mereka ga bisa dibilangin & ga ngerti apa yg kita maksud.
Daaann... masih banyak toleransi lainnya yang musti kita punya dalam berinteraksi sama anak-anak.
Cerita selanjutnya tetang toleransi terhadap anak-anak beserta segala kekesalannya, dilanjut dilain kesempatan ya. Postingan ini hasil pembelajaran saya dg anak-anak hari ini. Selamat malam 😁🙏🏼
