Dear Mini-me,

Here are a few things to keep in mind, but truth be told — do whatever you have to do, because you need to in order to become me.
.
You’ll be offered so many opportunities — some coming from your hard work and hustle, some because you are lucky and in the right place at the right time. No matter how alluring the offer is, only say yes to the ones that you absolutely believe in, because you will get criticized no matter what you do and say, so make it worth your time and 100% in line with your belief system. Remember your core values and don’t sacrifice them to achieve the approval of others. What others think is the greatest illusionary act of all time. The sooner you can let that go, the happier you will be.
.
Even when you do this, you’ll end up doing wrong things for the right reasons, and this is when you absolutely must open yourself up to constructive criticism and be the bigger person. This will absolutely suck (there’s no getting around it), but trust me, you’ll become a better person and a smarter teacher.
.
You’re going to feel the intoxicating high (and pressure) of being on top, and the defeating despair of scraping the bottom. Embrace both, because your happiness doesn’t lie in either one of those places. The journey will be long, but you’ll find happiness in the balance. .I know how badly you want to be loved, and this need will get you into trouble. Your heart will endure many beatings, and you’ll reach a point where you dismiss magic, but it will all come pouring back if you can remember that love comes from the most unlikely of places. Happily ever after is real, but it isn’t what you think it looks like.
.
Stop judging yourself. Your body is bangin’. Seriously. Besides, it’s just a meat suit that encases your soul, so ease up on the ticker tape of self-deprecating thought. Embrace your physical abilities, and kick your feet up when you need to rest. And girl — you need to take time to rest...

From the lovely @splattfinger ❤️

Tonight, while Al was watching @cnn , Satya asked me why little children were being separated from their parents and I had no words. There is no fathomable excuse that trauma should be inflicted on innocent children, and I have found myself looking away because it is just too painful to see. Then as I was making a donation to @together.rising I came across this post:
・・・
At Glennon's town hall meeting in Falls Church, VA this past week, a mother stood and said: "How do we talk to our children about what’s going on at the border? How do we tell our kids that babies are being stripped from their mothers’ arms?" Glennon answered: "I can tell you what I tell my kids. You know the story about what Mister Rogers’ mother told him? She said, 'When scary things happen: look for the helpers. There will always be helpers.' I tell my kids that story. And then I take it further. I tell them that it’s not enough to look for the helpers. We must BECOME THE HELPERS. I tell them we will not surrender to despair. We will not wallow in heartbreak or anger without taking action. Heartbreak without action might as well be apathy.
No. As for us and our house: We will not stand for terrified babies being torn from their mothers’ arms. As for us and our house, we will not just feel sad -- we will feel and then ACT."
. . .
A much needed reminder that I am not, in fact, powerless. And niether is my daughter. #repost #togetherrising #bethechange #action #power #yoga #unboundpotential

Gemstones are unique crystals that throughout history have been thought to hold special healing power. Ancient civilizations have utilized gemstones to release mental, physical, and spiritual blockages, helping the free flow of energy throughout the body. We are naturally receptive to the vibrations of gemstones as they transmit, reflect, store light, and receive energy. // Crystal Ellis founder of @bbirdwatcher.

I think that we are like stars. Something happens to burst us open; but when we burst open and think we are dying; we’re actually turning into a supernova. And then when we look at ourselves again, we see that we’re suddenly more beautiful than we ever were before.//Joy Bell.
