Heading out of town to take care of personal business. It will be till August that I will be flying out of the country for pleasure. ☺️ I am addicted to achieving greatness for myself and I am spending considerable time every single day working towards becoming a G.O.A.T. like Michael Jordan, be it through reading books, listening to an audiobook, watching YouTube videos, training in martial arts, and, even talking to people online and offline and learning from their experiences.
This past month, I became aware of my "why" to live for and I am ready for whatever "how" life throws at me.
Life is like F1 racing. The one who adapts best to its formula is the one who wins the game.
“Sometimes you need to step outside, get some fresh air and remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be.”
Spring has sprung! After a full morning in my kitchen making Strong Balls, my body was craving some Lowcountry fresh air.
Dan and I have done a lot of soul searching, goal making, and life planning this weekend. And while that’s all extremely important, it’s very tiring on my introvert brain. The best way to get back on track and re-energized? To lace up my shoes, stick my ear phones in, and get out for a solo run.
Anyone else get drained talking and planning about serious things for long amounts of time?
Now, that I’m energized and had some time to myself, it’s time to buckle down and start focusing on those goals and plans we mapped out. BIG CHANGES coming!
Heute hat es deinen Namen geregnet.
Den ganzen Tag.
Und ich hatte mal wieder meinen Schirm vergessen.
Die Strecke vom Auto
bis zur Haustüre ist recht kurz.
Dennoch reichte sie aus
um mein Haar und meine Kleidung,
meine Schuhe und meine Seele so zu durchnässen
dass selbst am Abend noch dein Name
aus all meinen Fehlern tropfte.
Zuerst befürchtete ich krank zu werden
bei diesen Temperaturen
und so triefend nass von deinem Honigtau.
Ich schnappte mir zehn Handtücher
für jeden Moralapostel eines
wickelte mich in diese
und legte mich und mein Versagen
zum Trocknen vor den Kamin.
Heute hat es deinen Namen geregnet
und ich stand im strömenden Regen,
streckte meinen Kopf Richtung Himmel,
öffnete meinen Mund und ließ deinen Namen
millionenfach in mich hineinplätschern.
Überwässert ergab sich schließlich
widerstandslos all mein Bereuen
und all mein Hätteichlieberdoch.
Heute hat es deinen Namen geregnet
und aus jedem Tropfen siehst du mich an
kleines Stückchen Allesrichtiggemacht.
Und in jedem Tropfen spiegle ich mich
kleines Häufchen Könnteichdochnureinmal.
Und dann war ich betrunken von deiner Vollkommenheit und ganz ertrunken in meinen Vielleichtdoch. A. H. S. #picoftheday#portrait#selfie#highlysensitiveperson#hsp#schwarzwaldliebe#schwarzwald#badwildbad#paleprincess#paleskin#hochsensibel#lassmich#introvert
Borrowing babies to get ready for my own 👶🏼
I imagine giving my baby the best life possible. Not just filled with love & joy but with experiences & comfort.
My full time job won’t allow me to provide the level of comfort I want to provide for the little Peanut but my side job WILL & I’m so grateful for that! 💰
Earning a full time income out of my side hustle isn’t a goal for me right now because I’m loving my full time job, but being able to earn a part time income is so comforting!
Whether you want to make full-time or part-time money, it’s POSSIBLE 🙌🏼
Living in discomfort, in constant worry, in struggle, is not fair to YOU when there’s a simple solution right around the corner ↪️
Talk to me fraaands, I got you 💌
What act of self-care can you practice today? ✦
It’s important to slow down at least one day per week to replenish ourselves. ✦
Turn off all the external noise, stop all the busyness and listen within. What does your body really need today? ✦
Vulnerable post alert!!! ***
Hey Fam! So I just had the most amazing weekend with friends and family. I haven’t been back home for over four years, and I was so excited to visit. Returning home for me is always a vulnerable experience. My mom has been gone 16 years and things have been different ever since then. Sometimes I feel like I turn back into an adolescent as soon as I walk into my father’s home. This visit I worked incredibly hard to stay present and enjoy myself and not do anything too crazy. 🤪 lol
I saw friends I haven’t seen in 15 years and visited with family members who I have missed dearly. We had the most amazing fun celebrating my godchild‘s 18th birthday and my grandmother’s 90th birthday. What a blessing!!! We laughed until we cried until after midnight last night. As soon as I got in my car to return home today I lost all emotional control. I’ve been driving and crying since 10:30 AM. I am hypersensitive. I feel my emotions and the emotions of everyone in the room. Any shift in energy affects me deeply. I work so hard meditating and praying and trusting my crystals, my guardian angels, and my God to protect my energy. And sometimes it’s just not enough. See despite the awesome fun I had this weekend I still had lots of emotion and felt lots of energy. I am also an introvert, and I require a lot of solitude and recovery time. I did not have my routine at was surrounded by people non stop. I live a life of solitude and this was greatly overwhelming. My point is that no matter how strong you are you will have moments of vulnerability and weakness. Those moments need to be honored, accepted, cherished. With gratitude I experience and release all of the emotion and energy from this weekend. I already miss you guys back home, and I am excited to visit for the graduation in May! Sending love and light to everyone feeling so much all the time! Honor your experience. Namaste 💕🙏🏼💫 #feels#feeler#feeling#esp#hsp#emotional#energy#heal#healing#mentalwellbeing#reducethestigma#bpdawareness#recovery#honor#healer#therapy#therapist#lifecoach#strength#strong#infj#introvert#empath#homesweethome#family#friends
I love being at home and reading a good book!
Being an introvert & growing an online business makes it easy to stay glued to my computer, but I'm changing things up!
I've decided that this year, I'll get out of the house more often, attend more live faith and business events (which I LOVE) and connect with more people in person.
What are you looking forward to doing more of this year?
✨ Thank you life for the strong guidance recent days🙏 I’ve asked for help, and has receiver it in many ways. Now I feel more confident about what i’m going through right now, and what my body tells me to do with it. I’m ment to be exactly who I am, with all my introvert sides and humility. But i’m not meant to adapt to the strict norms of society. My soul wants something else- i’m here to be me. ✨🦋 #introvert#soul#light#universe#God#love
It’s pretty funny how life is full of continuous flux and change and as humans we mostly hate, fear, and avoid change.
Things start to feel a whole lot simpler when we just get (and accept) that nothing will stay the same, and even when things feel stagnant and still, they are moving. Things do and will change and change is ok, normal, natural. Thank God they do, otherwise life would be boring AF.
This idea of impermanence is both totally freaky and such a relief. When things are good, we want them to stay that way forever and when things are bad, we want it to pass immediately if not sooner.
I’m settling into the calm acceptance, the quiet inner knowing, that life is always moving and the road to peace is that i move with it and go with the flow and season I’m in, allowing it to be whatever it is today. That i let go of my tight grip on yesterday (and even tomorrow) and simply see today with fresh eyes.
Today, i hope you can meet whatever comes with openness and acceptance and as the only Sunday March 24, 2019 that will ever happen.

I finally found the place where I belong. In Joburg my anxiety was out of control, I hardly saw my friends, meeting new people made me uncomfortable.
In my short time in Cape Town I've made connections with people who have been just as lost as me, I've been on spontaneous adventures, it's just so clear that I was meant to be here, (the random cats visiting just make it all complete) I just feel so blessed ♡ #capetown#introvert#beach#memories
A bit about me for you new followers & old familiars.
I am sensitive, introverted, and create out of an innate need for expression. Sharing this magic with you fills my heart. I will work for days...10-12 hours, nose to the grindstone, out of intense passion and inspiration for my art.
And then I head for the hills with my mountain man.
We just purchased property off grid- no internet, no city electricity, just the cabins and ponderosas. One of the cabins we are converting to solar power to become my full time jewelry studio. We will be there often over the next year as we transition to full time off grid living.
Other times we take off on a backpacking trip with nothing but what we can carry. Unplugged, tuned out. I love the simplicity of camp chores, fishing for my dinner, and sitting around a fire under the stars.
Returning, I’m able to again share my creativity and embrace the busy part of my life.
Thank you for being here for the quiet moments & the creative moments...thank you for enjoying this beautiful journey with me.❤️
