"Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life, said “I’m here for you”, and proved it.” I remember everything, everyday and that every
Moment we spent togather since you literally walked into my life.
We Been friends for 11 yrs now and still going strong.
You bring the best out of me. 👌✅🤜🤛
You are happy 😊 when I am happy 😊
You are sad when I am sad 😔. I feel blessed to have you as my best friend ♥️
Thank you for being always there for me
Oh Bali, you did something to my heart and to my mind!! It's like walking back home on sunshine...with an ease words just cannot describe! My body surrendered to the sea and to the waves while surfing (or trying to) (@surfwgbali ), my spirit and my heart opened up for everything to come into my life in Ubud (@theyogabarn ), my eyes watered in Nusa Lembongan (@dahlmannirina , @evamariahauck ), my ideas expanded in Uluwatu and finally my gratitude reached a so far unknown level in Canggu. What is next? I don't know and to be honest I am not really interested in finding out. The most important thing is to be just right here, and just right now - the rest will happen anyway somehow, someday...♥️ Thanks for the nice pic @dahlmannirina 🙏
Today’s ALMA class was full of inspiring discussions and panels on arts funding, arts and social change, public art in transit and on the BeltLine trails, a tour of the Fox Theatre and a presentation on #allthedata from the Atlanta Regional Commission! #grateful

One of those go-to attempts at shaming rape survivors is the worn out question, “Well, what were you wearing?” My own mother even asked me that question years ago when I was going through the process of filing a police report, and I’ve never forgotten how it felt to hear those words... But you know what I’ve found to be the ultimate rebuttal to that line of thinking? Art modeling.
I mean, hey, if people want to believe that clothing determines (implied) consent, and that wearing varying/diminishing amounts of clothing implies a desire to be harassed and/or attacked, then why not take that kind of “logic” to the extreme and see how people react to a completely nude figure? Right? How would someone be treated then? According to the “logic” of “well what were you wearing” it should follow that if I was wearing absolutely nothing then I’d be getting raped/harassed/attacked left and right until I put my clothes back on (like, all the clothes—on every part of my body—so nothing is “exposed”)... But the reality is quite the opposite. In fact, I have felt more respected, honored, and appreciated as an art model in art classrooms & studios than I have in any other environment or career path to-date. Ironic, isn’t it? I am treated with more respect as a nude figure model than I ever was in any other job I’ve ever held that required wearing clothing...which is all of them. I was treated the worst as a female scientist in business professional clothes, come to think of it. Again, the irony... Bottom line though: I am so grateful to the artists, (independents, professors & students alike) who have unknowingly been part of my healing these past years. Because it’s one thing to repeat to yourself “It wasn’t my fault,” and to say to yourself that your body is sacred and honorable, but it’s an entirely different experience to feel those same sentiments reflected back to you via the compassionate actions & words of other human beings. It has helped me to really *feel* and embrace the truth behind those ideas and to stop blaming myself or my body for what happened. So thank you, artists, for renewing my faith in humanity and in myself. ❤️ #iamhealing#artmodeling#grateful

Tiny triumphs! Today I celebrate a small, but exciting triumph! I reached 1,000 followers on Instagram. Why is this exciting you may wonder? A few reasons. The first is that I have a passion to help women take care of themselves physically, mentally and emotionally. As women we celebrate the accomplishments of our children, spouses, partners family and friends, but rarely do we celebrate ourselves. Today I am celebrating that my passion to help women reached 1,000 people! I begin and end each day looking to fill my social media with quotes, thoughts, images and jokes to inspire you to live your best life! Today our #goodvibetribe reached 1,000 people around the world and I couldn’t be more proud or happier! My goal is to continue to inspire and support you each and everyday! From daily posts, events, workshops, 1:1 life coaching or organizing your closet I am here to support you! I live it to give it everyday! What tiny triumphs do you want to celebrate? What goals have you been working towards? What would you like to achieve in 2019? I encourage you to think about what a tiny triumph would look like in your life? Thank you for all your texts, messages and support! There would be no #goodvibetribe without YOU! ❤️

I’ll never take these precious moments for granted visiting Tien Giang Social Work Centre a home for Orphaned children who were abandoned from birth shattered my heart I just wanted to take them home with me.
Meeting the elderly and people with special needs moments that are so hard to explain but knowing in my heart I felt such a special deep connection that I’ll always cherish.
Being on this doTERRA incentive trip has been such a life changing experience being involved in helping communities and families around the world knowing we are doing our best to make this world a better place.
My heart is so full and this has inspired me even more to keep doing what I am doing to be better and do better everyday to help others because life is so precious I don’t want to waste my time when I know I can give and do so much more..
I have so much to change within myself to become the best I can be this trip has truly inspired me to dig deep and get real... We need to do more in this world to show up for love and always help others to make this world a better place. @doterraaunz thank you giving me this opportunity I’m forever grateful 💜
Summiting Mauna Kea, what a humbling experience. Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain in the whole world (when measuring from sea level 🤓). The air (or lack there of... 40% less oxygen up there 😬), the silence, the cold, the snow, the colours... all of it was SO incredible! I’ve seen a lot of sunsets in my time but this one definitely takes the cake. ❤️ *no filter*

Life throws so much crap at us constantly. Life begins outside of our comfort zone. We truly feel alive in the most uncomfortable situations. When our blood is pumping and our hearts fighting to keep us alive or we are feeling every emotion rush through us. When we feel alive, we feel the growth, the strength, we really have within us and the power our bodies have to keep going. Our mind the most powerful of all, can make you or break you. What you let constantly hover in your mind is what’s going to shape you for the better or worse. It’s important we truly learn to understand the power of our minds and the power he have to control our selfs and bodies through breathing and positive thoughts. YOU are fully in control of everything you jump into. The way you choose to take it on and face it, is on you. The limits you set for yourself start in your mind.

First off I’m super close to 7k which sounds small but 2 years ago I had 800 followers and didn’t understand Instagram! I’m going to be doing a sick giveaway when I hit 7,000 so stay tuned! ANYWAY, I’ve been in my head a lot lately so I felt like it was time for a personal post. Sometimes we need to take a step back and reflect on what makes us happy and what brings us down. Occasionally reevaluating the importance of things in our life can put things into perspective. This past year has changed me into a more confident and free thinking individual and a lot of that has to do with the beautiful industry that I am so lucky to be a part of. I found my tribe without a doubt, friends that lift each other up when we need it. People to confide in when things feel even rougher than they really are. Thank you to my mentors who I am so humbled to call my friends for always guiding me. Here’s to unbreakable bonds and spreading our love and knowledge all around! This is me and I’ve never been more proud to be me.
