First day of ski touring for the season. Not pictured: 27 minutes of fumbling with my gear in the parking lot, the argument I got into with Jean-François about how he was too busy chatting with a friend he ran into in the aforementioned parking lot to notice I needed help with my gear, the moment on the skin track when I realized I hadn't fully locked my toes in, the 27 times I needed to stop to catch my breath. #realitycheck
It's hard to tell in a photo.. but you see that snot there?... it was glowing.... actually Glowing.. see in the dark glowing.. what kind of nuclear cold did you catch?!?! For the love of God! 😷... ... wait a minute, where in the sweet f.. did this glow stick come from and why are you eating It! Should I do a weekly #realitycheck ?
Parenting is not all rainbows.
Yesterday, this one decided to play the "poop or chocolate" game... she started crying.. she was rubbing her face and putting her hands in her mouth. I went to pick her up, put her on my hip and nuzzled her in all "oh hunny, you're teething so bad......" and there it was.. shit.. all over her and now all over me. 20 min before we were going to leave the house.
Today.. she bit her sister.. bit astrids fingers so hard I was shocked there wasn't blood.. but her fingers were swollen and bruised.
Some days I swear the Lord is testing me 🙈🙈 I'm tired. So tired. Is it bedtime yet?
Told Jack I wanted to be a Sun City Pom when I get older and spend my free time marching in parades. He told me my dream might be coming true sooner than I think... they start at age 55 😐 #veteransday#realitycheck#america

What is your biggest fear?
I remember a commercial with a bunch of women smashing scales and honestly, I don't even remember what it was about.
We all seem to fear the scale but I have some news for you...
It tells the truth.
If you ate off plan, didn't drink your water, snuck a donut etc etc etc.
The scale Will tell you.
There are numerous reasons for unexplained weight gain and if you went up 8lbs overnight, it can be not enough water or to much salt, its more then likely not fat.
If you fear the scale, its more then likely because you fear the truth.
It tells you what you did or didn't do to get you where you are.
I've 100% been there and the only reason I feared the scale...
Was because I was lying to myself.
If you're 100%, it'll show.
You can not be measured by money, by centimeters, by kilograms, by IQ, by grades by likes or followers or status. The moment you think you can be measured by these things is the moment you REDUCE yourself. You are HUMAN- don’t forget. I’ve been having a somewhat miserable time this semester and sometimes for a mere second stop and ask myself why I’m picking this medical journey and why I’m almost addicted to doing this to myself when I have so many more easier, faster options. And everyday I’m reminded of why I did. And I did for the very reason of that this journey shows me that WE ARE ALL HUMAN and so am I. No matter what!!!! It keeps me real, it keeps me open. And nothing is truly more important to me than being able to be myself and be a person who is not influenced & not sorry for being herself. I’m way too deep to be a follower, way too loud and bold to not use my voice, & have too much heart to live a meaningless life. Thank you to every one of my patients for letting me take care of you- because you’re not the only one who is being taken care of. You take care of ME more than you’ll ever know ❤️Truly practice your #mind and #heart and do something great with it, cause at the end of the day when you take away all of your fake shit, those two things are the only things that can measure you. And the more you practice the more you start seeing right through people’s facades and can be grateful you’re not living in one 😶 #STAYREAL#realitycheck#notfooled#notinfluenced#notafollower#youcantcarewhatanyonethinks#fufilled#striving#thriving#illneverstop#sameolG
I haven’t shared a book that I’ve read forever but I’ve read quite a few this year. Here’s one everyone should read. As most things are in life, it came across my lap exactly when I needed it two months ago, and I devoured it in a few days. .
Game changer. If you like science, philosophy, the audacity of hope, the power of faith, non-fiction, a damn good story, the harshness of reality, humanity...it is all in this book articulated in a gripping yet funny and realistic and heartbreaking way. At the end of the day, who or what do you love? That’s what will carry you to the end. And life is short; today really is all you have so give it your best and do it with those you love #lifeisshort#whenbreathbecomesair#lifeisanadventure#realitycheck#loveisallthatmatters#fellowship#beyourbest#strongmom#fitmind#fitsoul#mombook#lifebook
Last one. Remember it. All the reasons are written. You'll soon know why. Although, why never mattered. What mattered was Love. It was absent. 😆
It's okay...Peace comes with the dawn of a new reality in a new existence. Don't judge, simply seek to understand, then be the difference. Maybe, maybe there will be less of us. Call us weak...the load was heavy. We needed rest. .

I don’t know any person that I look up to that can Credit* their success to HighSchool. NONE! •
I used to play by the rules: Get good grades, show up on time, turn in your work, study, and more BS💩. That ^^formula^^ = AVERAGE. •
There’s nothing in the public school system that is teaching us about our modern day society that is being ran by *Entrepreneurialism.* ZERO. •
Why the hell are they “TESTING” us on whether we know the Quadratic Formula and the “Rhetorical Précis,” when they should be TEACHING us how to use social media, Investing money, Real Estate, Block Chain, Shopify, all to create Active and Passive income 💵.
It pisses me off that the Realists(entrepreneurs that see the the BS in which we’re forced to be in) have to Self-Educate themselves to get ahead.
But you know what, it’s great that it’s that way. That way the 98% of the world can stay in that BS “Rat Race” while the other 2% that are neglected from society prosper.
It’s like the old saying goes, “Formal education can make you a living. But Self-Education can make you a Fortune.”💡 #RealityCheck#Rant#entrepreneurialism
Swipe —-> Please please please, men, take a long look in the mirror before you tell a woman you are barely half a decade younger that you “love mature women” or “into older women”. If you are 32,33,34,35, etc, you are practically the same age as me. We both grew up in the same era. A “mature woman” for you would be a woman 20 years older. Just because you can still date 22 year olds doesn’t mean you are 22. I can date them, too. #realitycheck#youreoldtoochief
In fact, they most definitely don't.
The messages you send yourself are what make up your self esteem. Your self esteem is the value you place on yourself and your abilities. Only YOU are responsible for this so if you constantly tell yourself people are judging you, mocking you, or hating on you it takes a toll on your belief in your self worth. It only goes downhill from there.
Remember, you have no way of knowing what people are thinking or saying unless you ask directly or hear it yourself. Also remember, it doesn't even matter, but that's a separate post.
Too often we tell ourselves that people are responding to us in a certain way but we have zero proof to back that up. We become so wrapped up in these thoughts that we start believing they are actual fact.
Here are the real facts: you don't know and even if you think you know, you still don't.
Concern yourself less with what you think other people think and more with what YOU think. Let's work on valuing and believing our own thoughts and feelings over the imagined ones that don't belong to us. Who's with me?
How do you want your life to look?
I always dreamed of living in sunny Queensland.
All the years I lived down in dreary Melbourne, I always knew I would end up in the sunshine state
It called me.
I just felt I would live in that gorgeously dreamy place where the sky was always so blue, the trees so green & everyday was postcard perfect.
I had no idea HOW or WHEN it would happen, I just knew it WOULD.
And here I am.
Literally EVERY day I feel bursting love & gratitude to be here.
I don’t take this blissful scenery for granted.
I adore it.
I am SO glad I followed my heart here.
Im so glad I had the tenacity, fearlessness and confidence as a 20-something year old to leave everything I had in Melbourne (a budding and rapidly growing career, family, friends, familiarity, safety, etc), to venture ON MY OWN into the unknown!
I literally packed up my Honda Civic & hit the road - after handing my private practices to others & finding a replacement for my dream job as a new graduate dietitian
Everyone told me I was crazy!
Most people discouraged me saying “you’ll regret it”, “you’ll be back”, “they’re so backward up there”
Imagine if I’d listened…!?
I couldn’t bear to think about where I’d be, how I’d be feeling & to STILL be craving & desiring this!
It would literally kill me!
And this is how many of us end up
Letting go of what we REALLY want & SETTLING for WHAT LIFE SERVES up.
We rationalise it by saying, “life’s not as easy as I once thought”, “this is REALITY”, “we can’t always get what we want”
And I call BULLSH*^
This is the biggest load of crap we’ve ever been fed!
WAKE UP right now & realise- life is a GIFT
It is meant to be ENJOYED.
You are MEANT TO HAVE FUN!
You are supposed to live your HEART TRUTHS.
Whatever you have once dreamed & desired from your soul IS completely here & now & available for you
You just need to remember WHO YOU ARE.
And to CHOOSE
Whatever story you’re telling, unless it is coming from your soul, it is A LIE!
It is literal BS
And you can recreate your life to align with your soul ANY MOMENT you decide.
Today, I want you to reflect…
Does your life look how your soul desires it to look?
Back when you were a fearless ⤵️
Motivation comes from looking at the things you want, and realizing what it takes to get it.
My (seriously incredible) piano teacher use to always say, “Champions are made while others are sleeping.”
Clearly I didn’t become a professional pianist... but... she did teach me something awesome. Everything comes at a price. Wanting something great isn’t enough. You have to be willing to put in the effort and sacrifice to make it happen. Even if it is an hour or two of sleep. 🖤
