I live for these days spent wild & happy. A jumble of limbs, hair & breath - all flowing forward & free... 💛🧜🏼♀️•

Happy weekend everyone!! Last night, I had to take a step back and really focus on self care in the form of a long bath. When I was in there, thinking, it really got on my heart to open up to you about something. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have been feeling really discouraged lately. See, March-April are always pretty slow times for my shop. I know it and I kind of plan for it, but this year it's been hitting me hard in the mental department. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I've been worrying whether I've lost my design skills, whether anyone still likes my stuff, whether anyone else is still excited for the things I create. It's been tough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have all these ideas and fun things planned and the self-doubt makes me wonder if anyone will even be excited about it. I can feel myself kind of retreat within myself. I get quiet, I only do what I have to do, I tend to spend a lot more time in bed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm trying not to let myself fall too deeply into that rabbit hole. It's hard because as a creative shop owner, our sense of self worth is tied so heavily into how our art is received, but I promise guys, I'll pull out of it soon. I have some big things planned and I'd hate to let all of that suffer because of self doubt so self-care is definitely going to be high on my priority list for a bit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are you doing for self care this weekend? Do you ever struggle like I do with self doubt?
AN OPEN WINDOW
I have heard tales of many cities across India, where the idea of doors and windows are long lost...
The idea in fact, is to welcome every aspect of life with open arms... and receive it with a smiling face...
And the visitor can be an unexpected crisis, as much a pleasant surprise...but as long as you don't have barriers to block them, all of life will flow through you with ease...
This contains such a powerful message for our attitude towards life... Doesn't it?
@brenda_drost God has called us to live outside our comfort zone. To live free! “So, my friends, this is something like what has taken place with you. When Christ died he took that entire rule-dominated way of life down with him and left it in the tomb, leaving you free to “marry” a resurrection life and bear “offspring” of faith for God. For as long as we lived that old way of life, doing whatever we felt we....But now that we’re no longer shackled to that domineering mate of sin, and out from under all those oppressive regulations and fine print, we’re free to live a new life in the freedom of God.”

It’s the weekend!!!! Don’t know about anyone else but we are sure glad that it’s here. Anyone else have a long week? 🙋🏻♀️
We can get so busy and caught up with life that we forget to take time to rest and be present. The chaos overtakes us and that is when anxiety and unsettle kicks in. I have a hard time with this and always feel like I have to be doing something. But, having that feeling all the time is exhausting! This weekend we are going to try to be present and allow ourselves to rest. We all need it sometimes.

While in Makawao... I stopped by the Rodeo General Store... ummmm WHERE HAVE I BEEN? They have such a beautiful selection of vegan options! I almost broke into song when I saw a gluten free, dairy free, vegan mango “ice cream” I AM SOOOO EXCITED to try everything!!! 😂🤷🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️👍🏽🤙🏽🤗❤️🎁🎉🎶🙌🏽
I must say that even tho I am fasting, I am having so much fun learning about ALL the actual FOOD that’s available to me AND all the nutrients I have been missing out on with my boring common meals before. Don’t let me fool you, I saw a hamburger steak smothered in onions and gravy last night and ohhhhhhh yes! I remember how much I LOVE hamburger steak, but Ive also learned that its the seasonings that make it amazing cause we stopped eating beef and used turkey to make ours, no problem and I bet seitan will do the same... it’s seriously about seasonings sooooo... I will have a patty smothered in gravy and onions again!!!! It will just be plant based and gluten free! How exciting! 🙌🏽
Also, it’s Saturday morning... about 5:30am. I have successfully been water fasting for 8 days and today will be day 9. I feel fine. Lots of the most uncomfortable and surprising detox symptoms seem to have faded but (tmi) my shishi is still not clear! I am not surprised anymore bc 40 years of eating meat and glyphosate can’t be washed out in 8 days but perhaps 40... 1 day for each year? 🤔
Gonna do some light yoga since the sun is starting the break and I heard the plants do some extra in the mornings and it’s good to be in their space breathing and meditating.
I hope everyone has a blessed day and pursues peace, love and divine joy today! ❤️🤙🏽
HAPPY BIRTHDAY RY-GUY! 🎉7️⃣🎈
I don’t know how the last 7 years flew by so quickly. But I do know that he is the happiest kid. Almost always smiling. He has such a sweet soul and cares about everyone. He may have always done things a little behind everyone else, but when he does finally convince himself that he can crawl, walk, talk, skate, read, etc, he gives it his all and excels.
I know I can always count on my baby boy for the best snuggles and smile. Love him soooo much!! Happy birthday baby! 💛
