Workouts are SO MUCH better with a friend!!!! My girl KILLED IT on Day 1 of A Little Obsessed! I’m so proud of her 🤗
We will be starting 80 Day Obsession, my second round & her first round, next Monday! I’m so lucky to do this journey with not only my team but my best friends!
We’re crushin #GOALS 💪🏼☺️
For years, I’ve told myself the story that I have a fear of commitment. But as I sit here and contemplate it, I don’t think that’s what it is anymore. I’m deeply committed to learning. I’m deeply committed to growing. I’m deeply committed to uncovering the truth/light within myself. I’m deeply committed to being in loving, healthy & authentic relationships. I’m deeply committed to the loving Spirit of the Universe. I’m deeply committed to following my heart.
I know that I’m committed to these things because if I wasn’t, I probably wouldn’t be here. Maybe what I’ve thought of as the “shadow” is really just the light saying hello. Yeah, that’s what it feels like. Every time I’ve been on my knees in desperation for an answer to a new way, I see that I was really just sitting at the horizon waiting for the sun to pour in, knowing subconsciously in my bones and soul that it would. Even in the times where I was barely hanging on, something in my being knew that the light would come and I would find joy, or even contentment, again.
In my job, I see this happening everyday. Folks come into the treatment center because they don’t know what else to do and slowly I see their light being revealed throughout my time with them. It’s so beautiful! A miracle is a shift from fear to love, says A Course In Miracles.
When we shine, we allow others to too… A symbiotic relationship. If other folks are not okay with us shining, then maybe they are not meant to be in our lives for some time or at all. And that’s okay. We can wish them well and remember that no one is better or lesser than anyone. We are all here, walking our path back home the best we know how.
There are two different sides of a Marine Corps recruit depot... the side you can live freely and the other side where your life is literally hell. But it’s really incredible to see young boys become young men here. The transformation is forever. 🇺🇸 #earnednevergiven
Mandelic Acid 5 Skin Prep Water
Retails for $22.00 (US)
Product details: This is an exfoliating water formulated with madelic acid, which works gently on all skin types. Removing built up dead skin to enhance the effects of your following skin care products/routine. It helps to even out dull, uneven skin tone, and smoothed rough skin.
Benefits: this prep water is formulated with 5% mandelic Acid which can be used without irritation. Contains anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Mandelic Acid- as one of the AHA ingredients, has a larger molecular size therefore causes very little irritation, since this is an acid and is for chemical exfoliating. It helps improve pigmentation and restore aged skin. Panthenol- known as vitamin B5, acts as a humectant and moisturizer which helps skin to regenerate hydration. Sodium hyaluronate- attracts moisture to help retain moisture to prevent dryness after exfoliating.
Thoughts: love this product!! I’m an acid junkie. I always used acids and I’m very thorough about cell turnover and getting rid of that dead skin. This does just that and it’s very gentle at the same time. I do have acids that are a bit stronger than the Wishtrend prep water, but sometimes I like to go a bit less harsh with my routine and so I use this for those times. WARNING- when using acids and exfoliating please educate yourself on how to use your products (acids, vitamin C’s, retinols etc.... )there is a way to use them and a way to layer them!!! You could burn your skin so please ask if you have any questions before using. I would repurchase this product, I’d recommend to anyone because I feel it’s gentle enough for any skin type and all skin types should be exfoliating. I can’t wait to try more from WISHTREND. They are cruelty free. I purchased this product from @0.8l_usa at a reduced price for my opinion and review!
One of the greatest signs of maturity and growth is the ability to understand beyond the scope of our own realities and truths. We are products of our environment and experiences. And through our journey, we develop a belief system on the basis of those experiences. It’s an extremely difficult thing to expand our belief system to include other people’s environment and experiences if they aren’t our own. In other words: we believe our eyes over our ears. So, when somebody doesn’t express love in the way that we’re familiar, we often misinterpret and reject them. The greatest distance between two people is misunderstanding. That’s why it’s important to develop friendships first and find a person that wants to learn you. The one that wants to explore your mind and soul as much (if not more) than your body, is a keeper! We have to learn to think and understand beyond the scope of our own realities if we want to have prosperous, enduring relationships.
This 21 Day Extreme has me both out of breath and super sweaty...hurts so good and feels so good!
Although it seems scary to start your own program...if you have goals, you have to work, get sweaty, be out of breath and probably feel sore more often than not! You have a great community to plug into; with a crazy amount of support! THEN you will have your own transformation to share and talk about; how cool is that?!
Who is ready for their summer bod? ☀️👙🙋🏻♀️😆
One thing that I was surprised to experience during this week away from my lady was how attached I had become to my better half @1mezlyn. When u spend the last 10 years with someone.... day in day out. You may take certain things for granted. I know I did. The main thing being how fortunate I am to be experiencing my life with such a loving, compassionate and brave soul. And how it’s important as humans that we allow our loved ones room to grow in whichever direction the universe reveals. She has helped me to grow up at my own pace, in my own space. For that I will always be grateful. So I’m learning to let go.... and not be attachment to..... anything. Because that clingy crutch will ultimately sidetracks our progress and the progress of your loved ones. As always, I seek contentment, non attachment and present moment awareness in all I encounter. Namaste 🙏🏽 Alfred
Ladies: You have no idea how important and needed this is for a man. I think sometimes women forget that men are emotional beings as well. And although men often aren’t as forthcoming with their feelings, they still need affirmation. If you have a good man in your life, TELL HIM and SHOW HIM. Just randomly text him out the blue and tell him how proud you are of him or write him a detailed list of the things you like/admire about him. I guarantee there’s not many others (if anyone else) telling him that and he would be VERY appreciative of your gesture. A man wants to feel wanted and appreciated too. If you want to know one of the secrets to keeping a man happy, feed his soul and his emotional being as much as you feed his belly.
Why do we act like we are nothing special?
Out of everyone on the planet, you have your own set of likes and dislikes, experiences, traumas, and accomplishments.
All of those things that you really loved to do in the past? They were uniquely you. And that's why they stood out from the crowd.
When I decided to follow my passions it wasn't about how much money I could make. It's about feeling good, feeling purposeful each day, and doing it in the way you feel matters most.
If you care strongly about something, it is because you are meant to make a difference. If something gives you joy when you do it, you will go far because of that boost of energy and enjoyment!
Each and every flower, petal, stem, or leaf has a certain outline it follows, but each one also has its own unique flaws that no other one has. All together, it creates a one of a kind rose bush.
You are beautiful in your own way, just like these roses, each petal of your life unfolds when you start to love yourself for you and love your life for what it is. -Jess
Appreciate them WHILE you have them. You will eventually learn you won’t come across a lot like them in your life. Whether you’re in a relationship or just in the courting/talking phase, if you have a real one, make sure you show them proper appreciation. Otherwise, you’ll be plagued with “what if’s” and “I should’ve” for a long time after they’re gone. If you meet someone special that you connect with, that’s NOT coincidence; you were meant to meet for a reason. Don’t block that blessing - explore that relationship to its fullest extent and receive the message/gift that it was intended to provide you.
Such a magical retreat at Haramara last week! Thank you, dear yogis and Haramara family for making our time in Mexico so wonderfully enjoyable. Super chill sunsets, incredible meals, beautiful vinyasa and restorative yoga practice, all the laughter and tears, beach and town time, stargazing, truly an amazing retreat. ✌🏽💜🙏🏽
