I find that time of day when the light starts to fade and when day gives way to night to be so dreamy. It's a fleeting moment where seemingly two worlds, the busyness of day and the drowsiness of night, coincide and simultaneously exist. For a moment, there's a suspension from reality amidst the waning light, and it's my favorite thing. ✌🏼
I'm not gonna lie to y'all - this week I felt like giving up. On everything. I wanted to run away from all my problems and obligations and just get the fuck out of my life, my head, and my self. And to be honest, I did ignore some things in my life that I just didn't feel like I could handle in the moment. Looking back, I probably could have dealt with those things more appropriately.
This week, this year, has been a constant upheaval of everything I thought I knew about myself and the world around me, and now everything has felt like it's coming to a head, all as this month draws to a close.
What's the lesson here? What do I take away from this? What have I manifested within myself for this all to happen? During my business coaching session today, the incredible @rixsteve reminded me of all the amazing things I've done this month, the things that I created and manifested. It made me realize that I'm WAY too hard on myself 99% of the time. I am absolutely my toughest critic and the saboteur of my own life. Which is cool, because that also means I'm the motivator and creator of my own life, too.
And maybe I don't have all the answers right now. Maybe the struggle is the lesson. I don't know. Regardless, Dr. Kathryn says take a chill pill and BREATHE!!! Everything in life is temporary. This too shall pass. Literally 3 different people into the past 2 says have told me to breathe haha so brb while I get out of my own shadow, enjoy the present moment, and just fucking BREATHE. ♡
My heart is filled with gratitude and my camera card is filled with photos. Today was amazing. Four islands in the helicopter and four thousand waterfalls (maybe not that many but I'm not kidding when I say at least a thousand, easily). Thanks to @novictorhelicopters for another wonderful flight!
Our dearest little to be. . . do go chasing waterfalls. & please don’t stick to the rivers & the lakes that you’re used to. 🌎💫 #teamyuzawa#28weekspregnant ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・
I love seeing all the different pics everyone has been posting for this years earth day! On top of that, I love seeing even more the little things people are incorporating into their daily lives to make for a better tomorrow.
Recently my other half and I went out to eat, and as our waiter greeted us with waters I proceeded to let him know we would not be needing any straws this evening... then to my shock he continued to draw straws out of his apron & bump them open on the table for us to grab out of the plastic wrapper, I was so in shock I didn’t know how to react. To make the situation even worse he continued with the comment, “go ahead, take them, it’s better that way.” — Now we have tried our best to phase out single-use plastic products in our life, but now my goal is to speak up and spread awareness when I come across situations like this one again. I have always believed that we can’t hate on the uneducated, so let’s start educating for a plastic free future! 🌱🌱 #earthday ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・
What baby steps are you taking towards caring for our mother earth & blue planet??! I would love to hear from all of you & incorporate new & better habits together! ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・

Sometimes you just have to take a leap and build your wings on the way down! You can choose to live your entire life in fear, or you can do that thing you’ve been wanting to do! PS: Been 40 for two weeks, and age is just a number! #birthdaymonth#thisis40 😂✌🏻
