Our technology is a double edge sword. While it helps us communicate and spread our truths it is easy to get lost in the joy of others and think that you can easily recreate that joy by doing the same thing. But that may not be your truth. You may do it and hate it and then think there is something wrong with you. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU. YOU ARE PERFECT. It just isnt your thing. It wasn’t that Daphne couldn’t or didn’t like to dance, the music she was hearing just wasn’t her thing. I used to feel crazy for trying so many different things. Always looking for something new, always coming up with new ideas. Sometimes I felt like a scatter brain, sometimes I felt that I wasn’t good at anything and I would be a lost mess and a burden on my family. I wasn’t any of those things, I was just lost and searching for my way. Being stuck and not being able to see your path is scary, especially when it gets dark. But I promise you if you fight through it, fight through everything that is blocking you and step your foot onto your path the light will come through and you’ll find the strength to clear everything out of your way. Just never stop fighting for yourself because you are the most beautiful gift you can ever give to the world. #warriorsofloveandlight#fight#fightforyourself#fightforyourlife#journey#path#walkyourownpath#findyourpassion#findyourpurpose#findyourpeace#findyourthing#findyourthinganddoyou#doyou#true#truth#liveyourtruth#happiness#love#loveistheanswer#loveisthesecret#whatiswrongwithme#nothingiswrongwithyou
Dance like no one is watching you. My friend said this to me when we watched this guy cut a rug on the dance floor all night! .
We went to Oil Can Harry's (First time for me. Not my last time!) Saturday nights are Disco nights! 💃 I went for a pre wedding celebration for a friend that found her guy. He supports her uncondionally and loves her deeply. She loves to dance, so he dances with her. ❤
Some people showed up dressed straight out of Saturday Night Fever. AWESOME!! The vibe in this bar was unlike most bars. Authentic people living their authentic lives. Doing what they want to do. Embracing others.
I met a couple that reminded me what it is to be around people that encouge you to be you. They got me on the dance floor. I had the best time I have had in a lonnng time. They have the same mind set as I do. We all have a different path, we all have our "thing" and that's ok. They found each other and were engaged 4 months later. People said they were crazy. 5 years later they were not married. People said, "what are you waiting for" To quote them, "We can't win". One of the guys loves to dance. His partner had to learn to be free and dance with him. He did! They have grown together and support each other. It was so inspiring to be around people that grow each other. Not to mention being around people that found their partner. You can see and feel it Immediately. I understand "find your tribe" in a way I never have. Your tribe is out there. It just takes time to find them! Live your life for you and you will find people doing the same! .
Want to grow muscle? Want to maintain muscle? Want to get stronger?
High levels of protein is a MUST!
Protein is essential for many bodily functions such as building and maintaining new tissue, cells and muscle as well as playing a role in the production of hormones and antibodies. Protein is found in all cells in the human body and is a hugely important component in the structure of these cells, especially in muscle cells.
Good sources of protein. - Lean meats; chicken breast, Turkey breast, Turkey mince, lean beef cuts/ mince, lean pork cuts.
- Dairy; Milk, yoghurt, cheese, cottage cheese - Nuts
- Nut butters
- Eggs - Whey/ casein protein - Beans
Some meat and fish contain more fat than others, therefore you should try to stick with lean meats (chicken breast rather than thigh, for example). Oily fish such as salmon and mackerel contain higher levels of fats but these are generally unsaturated and considered 'healthy fats'. Fish with lower levels of fats such as cod and tuna are still great sources of protein.
To maintain and build good quality muscle tissue your protein intake needs to be quite high. I would be aiming for around 2.5-3g of protein for every Kg of your bodyweight. I would also make this around 25-30% of my total calorie intake. As with carbohydrates, 1g of protein contains 4 calories and so the same calculations can be done to work out your required protein intake.
You should aim to have a steady intake of protein throughout the day, eat it with every meal and maybe for snacks in between. This ensures your muscles have a good supply for their continual repair and growth 👌
I only have 🔟 days left in my twenties and I’m both excited and scared. I constantly have questions like “did I do everything I should have in my 20’s?” Then I remember that society sucks and shapes everything about our lives. Well heck with that!! My 30’s are going to be awesome! I just graduated and got my bachelors at 2️⃣9️⃣ and I can only imagine what my 3️⃣0️⃣’s will bring. Don’t let people tell you what you should and should not be doing at your age. Do what makes you happy!! #doyou#beyourown#goodbyetomytwenties#tendays#thefinalcountdown#birthdaymonth#yikesbutyay#kansascity
Our Sunday ritual. This life is new to us all. And while Marcus and I have embarked on this journey full speed with no thoughts of turning around or stopping we were worried what our kids would think of this new us- these new bodies, clothes, attitudes, diet, health, activities we choose and the new people that are already a part of this world.
Especially Daphne, being a pre-teen, you never know what they are going to think or feel. Not long ago she told me she didn’t like to dance and I told her she just hadn’t found her music. That one day she would hear it and then dancing would just flow through her.
I truly believe it is a parents duty to struggle through the work of finding their true self so they can help guide their children on the path they already walk. Children know themselves and live in their truth already but if the parent is lost and unable to find them self then it will only confuse the child and burden them with the duty of guiding the parent. This burden takes away from their light and their true journey and they get lost too.
Last night Daphne danced. In a park full of people, she let go and was free. She became her beautiful self and it was the most glorious moments for us to watch. #happyparents#happymom#happy#truth#truepath#journey#walkyourpath#warriorsofloveandlight#beyou#doyou#dontbeafraid#findyoupath#findyourself#dontfollow#handsomeman#myman#mylove#crazy#weird#thisisus#noregrets#guidingouryouth#guidinglight#love#loveisthesecret

What God wants from us is far more important than what people think or say about us.
Isn't that the essence of the fear that holds us back in life?
I know what God has put on my heart and in my head but I have come up with all the reasons why I can't listen. But then God gets louder by putting other people in your life to give you His message over and over again until you are strong enough to listen and act.
Maybe you are like me - worried about the external forces like opinions from people, worried about the materialistic things that seem like they matter when really they don't. Maybe just maybe, if I can do it, you can too.
I don't know what God has placed in your heart and in your mind - but today let me be the voice He has sent to confirm His message to you. Listen to Him - not the voices of those who create the fear and doubt that hold you back from being all that you are meant to be.
God has shown me the intention He has had for me since birth. He brought me into this world unloved for a reason and shown me that true love starts on the inside first, people second. He has proven to me that I am worthy over and over again. I have resisted accepting his plans for me out of fear so he has shown me my strength. Last week God sent two strangers to send His message to me once again. It's time I act. How about you? Are you living in harmony with your purpose? Do you feel fulfilled in your life? When are you going to stop letting fear hold you down? Maybe I am the stranger God has sent to you today to listen to His plans for you.
To everybody who fake cares! Straight up. I know you see me doing good bruh and you be hatin. I’m not tryna gloat or be an assohole but you don’t know what it took to get here, the things I’ve had to endure. I made this happen, I got myself here, I didn’t get up that many times to stay down. Definitely not now. God done blessed me through so many situations I thought I would perish in, all glory to him. I couldn’t have made it this far without him. So if you’re with that fuck shit, I don’t want your fake support and behind the back comments, I’m good. But if you must, go ahead and judge me as if you have the gavel yourself, because ima keep doing me and not worry bout anything else. I go #HellaDumb#bayarea#hyphy#hiphop#doyou#simpleasthat#youlikethatlastbar#iknowyoudo#itsonmynextsingle#justwaitonit
I had two conversations this week that just broke my heart. 💔
There is nothing that saddens me more than people who have lost hope, who think there current situation can not get any better and even worse are just not willing to try. 😡
I understand we all walk different paths in life, but I have had the pleasure of watching a very very sick person who decided they were not going to sit around and wait for the disease to take their life but that they were going to do something about it, heal & this same person just ran a marathon last month. 💪🏻 I have seen a couple on the break of bankruptcy, and a newly widowed Mom that didn’t know where her families next meal would come from end up making 30,000+ a month. And countless others that made a goal so big everyone around them thought they were crazy 😜 and then they’ve crushed it! .
So in closing the only difference between the people that do & the people that don’t are their mindsets. 💪🏻Unless you start believing in you, there is nothing or nobody that can or ever will make you happy. 🤟🏻 BUT when you do change your mind and start believing in you.. let no one, I mean no one tell you no, you can’t or you won’t, in fact... learn to love hearing that and let it push you more!! #onelife#chooseyou#choosehappy
