I'm grateful for sunsets, brave children, exploring, meeting new people, and air conditioning and sunsets on the water.

I'm working the gratitude hard today because I'm feeling overwhelmed and when I'm overwhelmed I start to worry. And my thoughts don't stop. And then I start to panic. And we all know how productive that is. 🙄

I suppose I'm still working on my lesson from last week - go with the flow & trust that it will all be okay.

"Judgment is the constant evaluation of things as right or wrong, good or bad. When you are constantly evaluating, classifying, labeling, analyzing, you create a lot of turbulence in your internal dialogue." Non-judgment creates silence in your mind. - Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

True Story. I'm going with the flow rather than trying to 'fix' the hard things. I'm trying not to resist or struggle. Moving with three kids is hard. Living in temporary housing is hard. Not having my partner with me is hard. You know what else is really hard??? Not having AC in the fucking car!

It's all okay though. It will all pass and it's all okay. I'm coming back to my meditation lesson from last week - go with the flow; be present; be here. And at 5 o'clock, a lovely gin and tonic will also be okay!

I am worthy of happiness. That was part of my meditation this morning. Happiness is a choice, found deep within us. We are entitled to to be happy. Sometimes we feel 'less than'. We feel like we aren't entitled to be happy. The next time you catch yourself feeling unworthy or feeling that you shouldn't celebrate or that this isn't the moment or 'poor me,' remind yourself (or anyone who's expressing those feelings around you) that you (and they) and entitled to feel happiness. .

These are a few of my favorite things. Come on, sing it with me.

Brunch. Variety. New restaurants. Well-behaved kids. Bahahahahha, 😂😂 I have no idea what well-behaved kids are. If they just did everything I asked them to do at exactly the moment I asked them to do it then everything would be awesome!

It's time for a cleanse. One week in civilization and I've eaten it ALL!
I'm back on my intermittent fasting routine in the morning. I need some routine and consistency in my life. Diet and nutrition are the easiest things for me to handle in an effort to find that routine. Sleep is useful, too. And exercise. Oh, and meditation. Fuck, that feels like a lot of things I have to do to find consistency.

Saturday night in the city. .

That caption is deceiving because I was in bed by 10. Sleep is more important to me than tequila! 😱

And if you're already in bed, you still have time to find the magic in your day.

For me, one of the best parts of my day was making dinner for the kids. It's hum-drum and routine and it's exactly what I need right now. Moving our little tribe to a new city is exciting and fresh and scary and fucking overwhelming so the little things make me feel grounded. Meditating, working out, making dinner, tucking kids in - those are all things that are settling and comfortable to me. Anyone else ever find comfort and gratitude in the little things?

It's a struggle, I'll be honest. I'm discombobulated. I don't have a routine. We are living in an apartment on top of each other. And I'm just not feeling it. But I do it. I do it because I ALWAYS feel fucking fantastic when it's done. I do it for my body and I do I for my mind. Exercise destresses me. So even if it takes me all day, I'm okay with that. I'm going with the flow.

As you walk and eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss most of your life. - Buddha

This is what I'm concentrating on today, 'be'ing. Being present in all the moments, both good and bad. Being present for the kids' laughter and smiles as well as their tattles and shitty attitudes.

All the deliciousness in the world - tequila and champagne. It's called a 'Hello Beautiful' at @bocatampa. Tequila, mint, lime , sugar and champagne. There are so many reasons to say yes. My favorite ingredient was . . . ??

Do you see that????😱 That's sweat dripping off my nose and chin!
.
.
I don't sweat, I pour. I am not dainty when I workout. I'm gross and messy and disgusting. But it's totally worth it. I feel mentally clear and ready to handle the day after I've worked out. I'm working on a new 3 week series of workouts. Who's in?
