• // Another day, another meeting👩🏻💼...Today was w one of the Heads of a local Berufschule/Vocational College for young adults w various cognitive/behavioural/emotional/social needs. The B.B.W is an incredible teaching + residential facility that provides important technical & life skills to their special students. I’m so happy we have an aligned vision & are partnering strategically as we endeavour to make schools & communities even more inclusive & diverse. 🙌🏼. Carsten & his colleagues are open-minded & interested in hearing my ideas💡 & experiences around the W🌍RLD re: Inclusive Ed. We are preparing for our upcoming (January 2019!!) MEGA💥Meeting w a Director who has the power & connections to help us successfully launch my dream #bayerninklusionnetwork ✨✨. I’ve decided to post regularly about my Advocacy Work in hopes of connecting & inspiring people to use social media with a great purpose🌟. I adore Yoga & of course will always use these squares for that 🧘🏻♀️💗but there’s so much more to Yoga than the current IG culture of millennial, skinny, semi-naked, ridiculously advanced poses🙃. Yoga is for every one & every body. Yoga is a huge part of my Lifestyle (not just Insta cute pics) & I teach yogic principals to spread joy & peace☮️. I’m also posting additionally about these types of things to share the reality of the amount of time, effort & commitment that goes into achieving your goals✅. I envision a future in which everyone feels safe, successful & valued, & everyday I take some type of step ~no matter how massive or minuscule~ to make it happen! I hope you’ll continue to follow my journey & know that when you take the time to leave a comment & encourage the good fight🤟🏼 I’m fuelled ☄️& strive on despite the barriers. Make no mistake about it: being an Advocate for Change is hard & at times utterly exhausting😭. But the benefits for ALL💖 make it worth it. Thanks 4reading my words. It’s humbling to have an audience here in IG Land that cares. Ps. Would like to learn about YOU esp if this is a subject that lights your fire🔥 Let’s Connect & Manifest...🔮 #createexplore#dreambigdreams#bayern4inklusion
My guy @garyvee decided not to wait until Sunday to preach! 🤷🏾♂️🔥 I realize this often & need the reminder. It’s also important to remind those who expect greatness & influence from me! Pardon the language but hey, it’s Gary. 🤣
So many of the things that I am passionate about start with self awareness and eliminating entitlement. -
So many people are taking for the sale of talking which then puts them in a tough spot to have to back it up or look silly.
Please be thoughtful of your statements and pontifications.
Did you get this ?
Please focus on being happy not being a “baller”
Tag someone that will understand this.
Thankful Day 14 + 15
Today, I'm thankful for my kiddos who love to help!!
They're obsessed with the dishwasher. They want to load, unload, put in the dish soap and turn the knob to start it!
It may take a little longer to put the dishes away and my silverware tray may be a bit disheveled, but teaching them life skills and spending time together doing these little things is totally worth it!
To know I make an impact on a student fulfills something in me that makes me a better person, a better teacher, a better mom, a better friend. This student who isn’t in my class left this for me on my desk. All I know is that each and every one of us is placed here to do good for others, whether it’s a person you know or a complete stranger. We need more love in this world ❤️❤️ #love, #lifeskillsteacher, #rolemodel, #lifeisbeautiful
Today we used @n2yinc unique curriculum to work on some banking and budgeting skills. We went through a months worth of income and expenses and noted on our calendar how much they were, and noted if it was money received or withdrawn. Everyone loved this activity!
My Rock & My Roll because I deserve it all. I have it all because I believed so strongly in myself in the first place and more importantly I know what love feels like. This knowing was given to me by my mom and the women who raised me. I was kind of a group project. This is not something we were all given. Sometimes if we were given it we lost it somewhere along the way. Women/clients, come to me when they are exhausted of trying and experiencing heartache. They can not figure out how to do more or love more to turn around their marriage. They suffer silently because they are strong and believe, by their will alone, they can spare their children pain and save their families. I help these women navigate these uncertain times. I show them how to fully love honor and care for themselves so they can come from a place of security when responding to their situation. Loving yourself positions you to fully love another. Loving yourself is where your true power lays. 🙌🏻❤️🙏

Last night, as this show episode aired on the practice of professional cuddling, I facilitated a cuddle room, reclining in a daisy chain of massage and relaxation at a @kindradating Party. I’m on NBC’s 1st Look teaching @realjohnnybananas how to cuddle professionally with the gracious support of @josiaelliott ie creating a safe space for communication, active listening & intentional touch. It was oodles of fun, and mostly, heartwarming to see how everyone got something from the experience. I cuddle one-on-one with men and women, teach couples mindful touch for emotional support, & women processing their monthly menstrual cycles. I blend cuddle poses with light massage, talk therapy, breath work & meditation - sometimes even reading out loud. We practice asking for what we want - saying no - and honoring another person’s no, not so that people can just be told no all day but so that we can confidently trust another’s yes. That it is not born out of obligation or fear or mismatched assumptions. 💖❤️. #cuddlist#professionalcuddling#communication#communicationtools#losangeles#lifeskills#lifeskillsteacher#connection#intentionaltouch#touch
