Sometimes we have to do things that scare us; that's what helps us grow. ✊🏽 I started this journey 2 years ago on August 13th & let myself down after 3 months. 😕 This time, I'm making it public & making it count! 🥇 #August13th #ReclaimingMyTime #ReclaimingMySobriety #ReclaimingMyself

I'm breaking the cycle!
I'm reclaiming my time!
Not letting people hurt me and waste my time... #ReclaimingMyTime #ReclaimingMyself

Från botten till toppen, vilken j-vla revansch!! Kan inte sluta gråta 😭😭😭Jag hade tappat tron, trodde jag förlorat den kapacitet som jag för länge sen hade, långt tillbaka innan småbarn och jobb kombinerat med studier, men jag facking fixade det den här gången!!! Nu tar jag semester, tacksam över att äntligen känna mer hopp än förtvivlan över min studieförmåga 😃🙏🦄

This morning I woke up knowing I had to be in a place of warmth, surrounded by color and flowers in bloom. When I looked outside my window at the gray sky, dirty snow and bare trees, I knew I would not find it there. But I did know where I can always find warmth, color and beauty in my city and that is in the magnificent Belle Isle Conservatory. So after I'd had a good workout with my trainer at the gym, I drove the 20 minutes to Belle Isle, parked my minivan in the lot, scooted up to the front door, opened it and there I was: summertime in Detroit! This is just one of many photographs you are going to see from today's "travels" to a different time and place. And more importantly, in these images you will see reflected a different vision of the world and my place in it than what I have been posting of late.

I have turned the corner. I am no longer allowing Donald Trump to determine my thoughts and moods. It took me six weeks and one day to realize that I had given that man way too much power. And I'm not talking about whether or not he becomes president of my country; I am talking about who controls my happiness, peace and general well-being. No one deserves to have that kind of power except myself. And I am happy to say I have reclaimed power over myself and hope never again to give it away.

This might just look like an insignificant set of keys to you but let me tell you, this set of keys is one step closer to reclaiming the life I gave up. Too excited to be getting back in my groove and doing the work that I love. Thankful for people who have my back and believe in me more than I think I deserve! #timetocelebrate #thankgodimback #thisishuge #reclaimingmyself

I'm hitting the courts for the first time in a very long time #reclaimingmyself #movementisfun #personaltrainingdenver #personaltrainerlife

The hypnotic grooves and inspired poetry of @infinitedakota. Saturday the people of Guahan (Guam) who live here in Hawaii celebrated their "Liberation Day" in which they thank the United States Government from "liberating" them from Japan . Did You know that Guahan was bombed ONE DAY before Pearl Harbor? 🤔"The Second Battle of Guam (21 July – 10 August 1944) was the American recapture of the Japanese-held island of Guam, a U.S. territory in the Mariana Islands captured by the Japanese from the U.S. in the 1941 First Battle of Guam during the Pacific campaign of World War II." Fascinating I know... and this event is celebrated ON the military base of course. And it was a damn mission impossible to get our "foreign friend" @jgrayjnr (From aotearoa) on base. They literally made us all get out of my car, open all the doors, hood and trunk, only to deny us access without a "sponsor" in the car. The veteran uncle who jumped in was even more agitated than us saying, "Ah let's see what kind of 'Mickey Mouse' tings they got going on here" 🤣🙌🏽That whole unnecessary situation stirred us up in unexpected ways. Dakota is one of the very few people left speaking and activating the indigenous language of Guahan and sharing it via his grooves and penetrating poetry. This experience was everything, piquing the interest of the young men particularly. To be present, holding space in prayer, and to add my voice in resonance is my honor and kuleana. Mahalo Akua for the #timeandspace and all the infinite lessons in between #starrsings #imsoblessed #iland #layingvibration #reclaimingguahan #reclaiminghawaii #reclaimingmyself

There's something about this colour combo that I find soothing.

Trying my hand at alcohol inks lately, its maybe one of the few things that has sparked any real joy in me in recent months. Art is something I've been trying to fight off the black dog with. It's not a total silver bullet but at least I'm beginning to edge my way towards reclaiming myself. Gotta start somewhere, right?
Funny how my old comfort zone of acrylics & canvas doesnt feel natural anymore, but instead of giving up on it all I switched up the medium instead, and then this magic happened. I'm glad I persisted.

Alhamdulillāh for the Burkini from @wadiyaclothing and the sister's pool time! #HalalTurnUP
So needed that can't wait for tomorrow, Insha'Allah. #IllBeEARLY 😉😂 The water is freezing... #Burr
