Word. #bravegirlliving . from @glennondoylemelton - Ugh I love this. YES. There's no such thing as a voiceless person or a voiceless community. But there are a lot of mic- less people and mic- less communities. If you've got a mic, pass it on! #amplification #persisterhood

@stephanienickolich is just one of the many amazing Rockstars speaking at the Business Building Rockstar Summit! Stephanie Nickolich breaks down Facebook groups and how you can utilize them in your own business.
βž–βž–βž–
Building a Facebook group strategically takes time and effort but it takes no time at all to actually create. So don’t procrastinate, claiming that you aren’t ready! Before you get started you’ll want to be clear on your group's purpose but beyond that, let your vision be your compass. Allow your group to evolve organically.

Happy day if love and friendship!

I never considered myself an activist. I hate confrontation for one thing. I like helping people understand each, for another. But, my view of what activism is has expanded greatly this past year to realize it is so much more than marching and protests (those are important).

Cheers to any of you other precious souls that are also having a hard day! Feeling extremely emotionally vulnerable and just very tearful today. I had a good, but painful session with my anchor this afternoon and felt like I was able to let out a little of a breath I didn't even realize I was holding, but damn does it hurt....and man is it scary. I'm thankful for the people in my life that hold me, both physically and emotionally on days like this...and I'm thankful that for nearly 34 years now, I've survived every single day that has felt too big, too scary, too sad, and has left me feeling like just too much. β€’

Sundays are for brunch and brunch did not disappoint! Thankful for time with one of my hearts favorites, mimosas that are light on the OJ πŸ˜‰, and for the ability to enjoy simple pleasures! β€’

Sometimes (*read all of the time), hard weeks require copious amounts of coffee. This is one of those for this girl. As always, Starbucks is there to step up to the plate and take one for the team! β€’

"You see, man made the cars to take us over the road. Man made the train to carry the heavy load. Man made eletric light to take us of the dark. Man made the boat for the water, like Noah made the ark...this is a man's world but it wouldn't be nothing, nothing, without a woman or a girl."

Extra thankful for my dietitian today. Not only did she meet me for some much needed coffee talk time for the second day this week because she knows I'm not having the easiest week, but she brought me her new favorite bottle of RosΓ©. She's pretty amazing and definitely one of my most favorite people ever. So blessed to have her in my tribe! β€’

A little shopping and lunch in Suttons Bay earlier today and then I was feeling a-ok to hit the beach for a couple hours after a self imposed 'no sun' day yesterday πŸ˜‚I may also have some sort of secret mission to consume 1/2lb of chocolate fudge from Murdicks in one day going on at the rate it's disappearing πŸ˜³πŸ™„πŸ€£β€’

I got a tad too much sun yesterday 😳 So I'm taking a little beach break today but am not complaining about nap and reading time in the shade of my favorite hammock after a couple hours of shopping downtown! I know I keep saying it, but I am just very thankful for the chance to experience this place that has been my haven my entire life, without the constraints of my eating disorder. β€’

Made it to one of my hearts very favorite places today for a little escape from real life for a few days. I'm experiencing a lot of feels right now for a multitude of reasons, but I am above all grateful that I am feeling everything I am without also feeling the need to run to anorexia. This is the first time I've been to my family's summer cottage in more years than I can remember that I haven't brought along my eating disorder as my 'plus one', and I am seeing so many things so differently. It's beautiful. It's messy. It's life. β€’

Took another spontaneous walk downtown for a quick fro-yo before the sunshine went away! I'm so grateful for my cozy little nest in general, but I'm extra thankful for the ability to walk to so many places that I love! And I am abundantly grateful that I have the energy and ability to enjoy it all physically and mentally! β€’

Thankful for a sunshiny Saturday spent seeing one of my favorite ball players doing what he loves and coming home to walk downtown to wander through the sidewalk sales my city was having! Heading to my cottage tomorrow for a few days and am grateful for the opportunity to get away for a bit. Last summer was the 2nd in my 33 years that I was unable to get up north (due to being in treatment) and I've missed it! I also can't remember the last time I was at my cottage while being in a healthy place and can't begin to explain how different it feels, even just thinking about it I feel like I can breathe easier. Missing it last year was worth it in order to experience it this way as a result. β€’

I remember the day I took this picture and wrote the update that accompanied it so well! It's hard to believe it's already been a year and yet in the same breath it's difficult to believe it's only been a year! My gratitude overflows. πŸ’—β€’

Today's adventures have us at the county fair. It is 3,000* with about 500% humidity! I'm literally sweating from every place possible πŸ˜‚ I refuse to ride carnival rides because the fact that they can be assembled and disassembled in a day is terrifying to me, but I absolutely am ok with consuming all the ice cream cones and elephant ears πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»...And with finding the shadiest possible place to minimize the copious amounts of boob and back sweat currently occurring πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚πŸ˜³β€’

I'm thankful for a Saturday that has been filled with some of the things my heart treasures the most. This morning one of my favorite friends came over and we walked downtown and wandered through the farmers market before grabbing brunch from a delicious cafe. And this afternoon I was able to spend a couple of hours reading and relaxing in the sunshine, in a bathing suit-and I focused on the words on the screen more than the skin I'm encased in. I'm just so very grateful for all the experiences I am able to be present for in my life in comparison to how I used to feel. β€’
