This is what majority of my days look like ... Barefoot. In the kitchen. With 3 babes near by.
Touching, singing, breathing, talking, or looking at me.
Going to the bathroom by myself or eating a hot meal are out of the question. Having a clean house or all of the laundry done does not happen. The diapers, snot faces, providing snacks, wiping hineys, and melt downs are daily routine.
But you know what else is part of our daily routine - dancing, belly laughs, eskimo kisses, bear hugs, learning, developing, maturing.
Sometimes I feel unqualified to nurture, mold, and impact these little lives. Yet in the same breath, I feel a peace and confidence in laying each decision and each reaction at the feet of Jesus.
The days are long but the years are flying by faster than I could have ever imagined. Momma’s - Embrace the season, we’re gonna miss this.
#Healing is the journey. The destination is #yourself . The full recognition of all the different aspects of yourself—your #joy , your sorrow, your pain, your pleasure—all lead you to the source of #whoyouare . Only by having intimate contact with this #source can you experience the fullness of your #life . Only by fearlessly looking within can you #embrace the landscape of your life and open yourself completely to all the #love and #compassion that lives inside you. ~ Philip Berk

No one said embracing the rollercoaster that life is would be easy. Some days are going to be good. Others, you’ll wake up feeling empty, with no clear reasoning.
Not all of it will be settled with cliche breathing techniques. Sometimes having an alpha mentality just won’t shake it. It is days like today that matter the most. Days where you want to quit, days where you’re tested...yet again. It’s fine not to have a solution. Acceptance of down is okay. You’ll waste more time and energy controlling your every single emotion.
Throw on some death metal, and enjoy the fuckery of your pain 💪🏽✅🖤🤘🏽. #rageout#blues#overcomedepression#allthingswillfallintoplace#life#classicchris#embrace#embark#explore#feelings#raw#emotions#dontbescaredofthedark
For me, exploring new places, learning about history & culture is fascinating. I've been asked what my favourite part of my trip was...but its so hard to decide and pick only one when it was a great experience overall.
I loved all the places i visited, the experiences, the new friends i made, the food, the culture, the frendliness of the people even though language was a barrier.
I'm counting down my days til my next exploration! #travelgram#igexplorers#nomad#traveler#history#culture#food#music#discover#exploreeverything#embrace

Listen to your body.
We live in a noisy world that has so many opinions about OUR body that we forget to listen to the cues it’s giving us. It’s hard to learn.... we’ve lost this art, This intuition. But it’s not gone, it’s still there. God created these bodies so intricately, so beautifully, so intuitively..... we can hear him when we take time to listen. I think God has a thing or two to say to you about your body, about what is truly healthy, about whether you take care of that temple He gave you to dwell in and what that really looks like. But He doesn’t yell at us or throw thunder bolts at us when we seemingly mess up. He’s a strong, consistent, gently, authoritative voice. One we will miss if we don’t quiet all the other voices.
I started realizing how beautiful I am. I’m not talking about looks, I’m starting to realize my fucking worth. I’m on 🔥

It's easier said than done sometimes. When we see someone or hear someone and they are different than us, it can make some of us uneasy. The unknown and unsimilar (I just made that word up! LOL!) can be scary because when our ancestors had to live off the land and worry about the dangers of being eaten, attacked, etc., we developed these survival skills. However, in our times we rarely have to worry about our surroundings and watching out for a lion that may attack us. But those fight or flight instincts remain in us...some stronger than others.
When it comes to judging others, every time you do judge...you're moving further away from ever knowing what it means to truly be happy. Judgement never brings happiness... ever. Instead, we must open our hearts and minds to the possibility that maybe we can learn from our differences. Possibly we are supposed to embrace the unsimilar and spend time getting to know each other and each others' stories.
With each passing day, we have choices. We can choose to judge, we can choose to embrace, we can choose to hate, we can choose to love, we can choose to disregard, we can choose kindness. Whatever we choose...WE have the CHOICE. When we choose to judge, to hate, to disregard others...we choose to lock ourselves into our own type of narrow-minded prison.
When we choose to embrace, to love, to spread kindness...we choose to shine a bright light, to vibrate at a higher energy level, to change the world in a positive way.

“I like to see myself as a bridge builder. That is me building bridges between people, between races, between cultures, between politics, trying to find common ground.”
The bridge behind me spans the Hudson River between the cities of Troy NY and Watervliet NY(formerly known as West Troy NY). Raised by my Caucasian, Italian descended mother in Watervliet while my Black father faced his struggles on the other side, I have always felt this span in my essence. The story of me is a place that I have always chose to derive great strength and inspiration from, purpose and direction from. The steadiness of this river always reminds me to flow on knowing that my path is guided and I can always find my center, right here #troyny#watervlietny#hudsonriver#center#biracial#identity#full#flow#city#embrace#you#all#of#me#loves#all#of#me#start#there#come#here#build#bridges
