Let’s get a little bounce! Positivity and bouncing guaranteed tomorrow at the front of the State Capitol. Join us at 6am and see what all the hype is about!
A simple meditation to try next time feelings become overwhelming 🔹Close your eyes and begin to feel and acknowledge what you are feeling - stress, anxiety, fear, anger, etc. 🔹Notice where you feel this feeling physically and silently say “welcome stress” (or whichever feeling that has overtaken you).
🔹Sit with this for a couple of breaths
🔹Then put your hand over your heart and silently say “it’s okay, I will take care of you” 🔹Sit with this for a couple of breaths 🍃🌿🌱🍃
Please know that we are our own gate keepers and we have the capacity to sit and stay present with these emotions then allow them to pass. It is our choice whether we allow them to become our identity or not.
Love you guys 🕉🙏☮️
If you know anything about me, you know I. love. to. read. I could talk about books for hours on end and read them for even longer (just ask my husband!) These little beauties arrived in the mail just in time for our trip and I stashed one away in the diaper bag *just in case* I can still get away with reading on the plane 📖 ⠀
These books came via @thefoxedbox which might just be the greatest invention of all time. OK, yes, book subscription services abound but this one is near and dear to my heart for two reasons: ⠀
First, they send out gently used books. My little treehugger heart is so happy ♻️ Second, it’s a mama-owned company based in the #atx 🙌🏻
Sign ups for the next round are coming soon and you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be posting when they do! #shopsmall#supportsmallbusiness#thefoxedbox
It’s my last day in Austin, so I couldn’t leave without snapping a photo of this iconic wall mural. I showed up thinking there would be other tourist there...who could possibly take a photo of me in it. However, I had the place to myself. I even walked back and forth for a minute to see if someone would show up. So, imagine my curly head and freckled face was standing right there. 🤣🤣 Have you visited Austin? If so, what did you think?
