Caitlin Turner  Journeying through the endless possibilities to live a life that I love, then sharing it all with you. โœŒ๐Ÿป๏ธโคโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒธโœˆ๏ธ๐ŸŒŽ๏ธ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Globally, humans buy one million single-use plastic bottles per minute. Then those same bottles end up in landfills and our oceans. ๐Ÿ˜ข

Thatโ€™s why Iโ€™m a #waterwarrior, working with @findtap to spread awareness and be the change I want to see in the world. ๐ŸŒŽ

Iโ€™m really passionate about what weโ€™re creating with the #drinkdifferent movement and I challenge all of you to join us! I took the pledge October 23, 2018, and I havenโ€™t looked back since, because this simple switch became a lifestyle for me.๐Ÿ’ง
Ready to take the plunge and make the #drinkdifferent pledge? Head over to @findtap to find out how. Together we can create a tidal wave of change! ๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Joy, whether canine or human, is always contagious. ๐Ÿ’—
Iโ€™ve been wanting to bring Neila to Hawaii with me for almost 15 years (her whole life), and after 3-6 months of paperwork and blood tests, I finally got the ok from the hawaiian government for her to join me this time! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’—
Now let me tell you, paperwork, especially very detailed and tedious paperwork, is one of the banes of my existence. Iโ€™m very intimidated by it, because Iโ€™m not the most detail-oriented person sometimes... and knowing that I could buy my ticket, fly all the way here, land in Hawaii, and then be sent home for mistakes in my paperwork, was a very scary thought to sit with. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
Luckily I had every I dotted and T crossed, and @zoeeshay from @kauaihumanesociety was so sweet and helpful with everything. She even gave her a little doggy lei! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
Now as I sit here with Neila on a Kauai beach, seeing her 14 year old eyes light up with puppy-like joy at all the new sights and smells, I feel it too. ๐Ÿ’—
I only wish I hadnโ€™t let the paperwork intimidate me for so long, and had brought her here far sooner. Oh well, you live and you learn, and at least we made it here now. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Feeling determined to listen to the signs, even if I used to not believe they were there.
I would explain them away as coincidence, and push away anyone who pointed them out to me by telling them they were being too โ€œwoo wooโ€.
I give up.
I canโ€™t deny it anymore.
The signs are there. Always.
Without my self-imposed blindfold, I cant help but see them everywhere.
Why did I choose to stay blind for so long?
I guess I was scared, but...
Thank you universe, Iโ€™m listening now. ๐Ÿ”ฎ

To everyone who commented on my last post and told me to chop my hair...
THANK YOU for the encouragement! ๐Ÿ’•
I feel a literal and energetic weight lifted off of my shoulders, and I love it!!! I was so afraid to do it, and now I feel so liberated. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
Take it from me and do that thing thatโ€™s been scaring you! It will set you free in ways you canโ€™t even imagine.... ๐Ÿ’ฅ

My hair has been a daily source of frustration for awhile, but especially since winter hit, because itโ€™s pretty fine and tends to tangle and dreadlock in 5 seconds or less. So lately Iโ€™ve been thinking really hard about cutting it to a little below my shoulders. ๐Ÿ’‡๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
As much as I already complain about my hair fairly regularly, Iโ€™m still pretty attached to it (itโ€™s the devil I know lol) and Iโ€™m super scared to cut it short... but this also feels like the very reason I should do it. ๐Ÿค”
I know, hair grows back, but mine grows really slowly. Even so, Iโ€™m pretty sure I want to break through the walls of this attachment and experience life on the other side. โšก๏ธ
I tell myself (and mostly believe) that it will all be really empowering... but Iโ€™m also really scared I wonโ€™t like it and will have to live with not liking my hair for months... but then I also feel like sitting with and living through those feelings would likely empower me even more. ๐Ÿค”
I canโ€™t decide. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
The pros and cons are all real. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
What do you think?
Should I chop it?
Or not?
Have you cut yours recently?
Are you happy you did?
Please comment and help me decide! ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
Grateful for my friends at @spokeandweal and @aveda because, on the bright side, as much as Iโ€™m scared, I trust that no matter what hair choice I make, theyโ€™ll have me walking out looking and feeling beautiful. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ#styledbyaveda

Being a #britapartner feels like a natural next step, because I havenโ€™t bought a single-use plastic water bottle since October, and the taste of my water is really important to me. ๐Ÿ’ง
Ever since I committed to bringing my own bottle, having access to quality filtered water has been on my mind a lot more than it used to be. ๐Ÿค”
As a result, Iโ€™ve had to become more diligent with my preparation to go anywhere. Travel has presented the biggest obstacle, because I donโ€™t always know if filtered water will be available where Iโ€™m going. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
Iโ€™ve been so committed to avoiding plastic bottles, but so also determined to maintaining my water quality, that, believe it or not, I used to travel with a Brita pitcher (you know, the ones you fill up and keep in the fridge) each time I would book an air bnb... and that thing was bulky to pack! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
Now I just bring the new @britausa filtering bottle with a filter in the straw, like I did when I went to Joshua Tree recently. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
Itโ€™s super easy to pack, and I can have the filtered water I love waiting for me right when I wake up, while still filling up from any tap. Game. Changer.๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

When the push and pull of life are in balance, it creates space for magic to happen with ease. โœจ๐Ÿ”ฎ
Time spent practicing acro with @acrowithjon never fails to supply me with epic metaphors to apply to my daily life. This one is especially resonating with me lately. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
May we all find balance between our flowing and our forcing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I used to model as a teenager, but I finally quit when it dawned on me that 2 things that held me back, would likely never change:
1. My inability to keep my eyes open while facing the sun (they tear up like crazy and ruin makeup) โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘
2. My (often uncontrollable) impulse to giggle and cheese out every time someone tells me to make a serious face. ๐Ÿ˜
Well, almost 2 decades later, looks like number 2 is still going strong! ๐Ÿ˜‚

I legit just discovered bliss in the form of a rose lattรฉ. Planning to spend the rest of the day wondering how I didnโ€™t know this was a thing until now. ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿคค

The other day I failed at something when I had really expected to succeed, and I took it pretty badly. ๐Ÿ˜ข
I was telling a friend what happened and how I was feeling about it, and they said something to me that Iโ€™m so grateful to have learned: itโ€™s ok to fail, as long as you fail forward. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
Itโ€™s so true, and this perspective changed my whole outlook. ๐Ÿ’ฅ
Failing teaches us important lessons, that we must take heed and learn, so we can avoid failure the next time... and thatโ€™s actually an incredibly valuable experience. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
If youโ€™re dealing with fear of failure right now, let it go, and instead commit to learning every time you fail. If you can do that, then even your failures will be successes. ๐Ÿ’—

Being a #britapartner feels natural for me, because I bring my reusable bottle with me everywhere I go... but it hasnโ€™t always been this way...
I used to buy a bottle of water every time I went to a yoga class. Sometimes I would buy 2 bottles for hot yoga classes. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
The irony of purchasing a very unmindful item to bring with me into my mindful practice isnโ€™t lost on me, but I didnโ€™t see it back then- I wasnโ€™t aware. ๐Ÿ’ง
As I become more aware of the harmful nature of single use plastic items for our health and environment, Iโ€™ve been making a major effort to cut down on my use of these items wherever I can. ๐ŸŒŽ
It started when I decided to quit buying single use plastic water bottles, and bring my own bottle instead, and itโ€™s snowballed from there into giving up other single-use items like straws, cutlery, bags, seasoning packets, produce bags, etc. ๐ŸŒŽ
Iโ€™m far from perfect and still learning everyday, but Iโ€™m doing what I can, and if all of us do just that much, our world will be a better place to live for ourselves and future generations. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
With so many awesome sustainable alternatives on the market, itโ€™s easier than you think to give up some of your single-use plastic habits. If this feels daunting, try starting simple, with an easy to avoid item like plastic water bottles, and just bring your own instead. ๐ŸŒŽ
I like this new filtering bottle from @britausa, because I can fill from any fountain or tap without compromising the taste of my water!๐Ÿ’ง
