As if you were on fire from within.
The moon lives in the lining of your skin.
Life; she can be scary, challenging, confronting, messy and at times incredibly painful, but she can also be beautiful, exciting, unexpected and deeply delicious. ⠀
I continue to choose openness, shades of grey, murky and uncharted waters, growing pains, euphoric highs and invariably turbulent lows. The ying and yang. Both the masculine and feminine energies from within. A full spectrum experience. No attachment. No expectations. To drop the story and simply, be. Thank you for the lessons Byron ✌🏼💕✨
"I didn't know how common miscarriages were, because we don't talk about them. We sit in our own pain, thinking that somehow we're broken. I think it's the worst thing that we do to each other as women, not share the truth about our bodies and how they work and how they don't work." - #MichelleObama
In an interview with Good Morning America, former first lady Michelle Obama told Robin Roberts that she had a miscarriage and had to do IVF in order to have Sasha and Malia.
Around you, have women spoken openly about their miscarriages or not really?
My writer siiiiiiisters! Evening check in. I’m still getting used to the idea of being able to work from anywhere. God is good.
So in terms of good writing cafes in LA, The vibration in @alfred Coffee☕️ is as yummy as their Jasmine Tea. Words were flowiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing ♥️ They have stable WiFi. Writing here is 🙌🏾🙌🏾 Heads up: they don’t have charging outlets. So charge up your phone and Laptop 100% before you write here.

May you fall in love with learning who you truly are.
May you find freedom in releasing everything that you are not.
Whoever they told you that you should be.
Whatever they said that you should do.
In order to live a good life.
Don’t struggle so hard to be good. Especially not to prove yourself to others. Even if you are scared of what people might say.
Instead seek freedom.
Seek to live every day inspired by the world around you and your own heartfelt willingness to share your unique and magnificent gifts.
The world needs you.
The world needs you to show up as you are. No matter how unready. No matter the fear of failure that is in each of us of us.
It’s time to stop playing small.
The world needs you to stand up for your beliefs and greatest dreams.
I dream of peace. I dream of planetary healing. I dream of a humanity that has evolved away from violence. And cares for this single earthly home like it’s the only home we have.
What do you dream of?
This arrangement of “As Sisters in Zion” reminds me of this quote:
“Belonging is being needed, loved, and missed when you’re away; belonging is needing, loving, and missing those who are away... Relief Society is the divine gift to us as women.”
I have made some of my closest friends with my relief society sisters. They have taught me what it is to truly love and care for each other.
I hope we can all show some kindness and care to those around us. A smile, a hug and a kind act can go a long way!
I hope this music also brings comfort to you. 💕
I’m convinced that everyone has a desire to be a part of something special.
I “thought” my life was full before rf. I had no idea how much I would love having these people in my life. We infuse positivity, empower beyond belief, cry together, laugh together, push each other to be better than we were the day before, and genuinely care about each other, waaaaaaay more than selling skincare. I love the people and experiences this journey had brought into my life.
So I just wanna take a minute and express a whole ton of gratitude towards a few women I’ve met along this pole journey. There’s so many more to mention and who have a special place in my heart ❤️ This community is incredible, the support for each other is unmatched in anything and I’m so lucky to be a part of it! @littlepolekitten you got me started by asking if I’d go to our first class together, the rest was history from there! We started out with Zumba and some yoga at UT and look at us now, being all cool (and sometimes, ok usually awkward) on a pole doing all the things! @natashapagefine thank you for always giving your support and providing a beautiful space for us to grow in, I wouldn’t be at this point without you! @brandie.miracle we started this teaching journey together and you’ve given me an identity that I’ll always carry. @erin.glisson and @polemomma40 you two crazies, are amazing in all the ways, I’ll gladly share the stage and throw bras and panties around any day with you! @jaguarmoon_tkc my mini, my moonsister, I can’t wait to see where the future takes us, wherever it is, we will be unstoppable! @rochelle.not.rachel your support and love is amazing, I love teaching you, you always bring a light and silliness to class and it’s just incredible. @ba.floyd I think we were twins in another life, you really just get me and I know I can count on you running away to an island with me one day! @ga.elyria you’re a goddess, that trip to Atlanta was so much, we should do it again sometime! ...
Love all of you more than I can say ❤️❤️❤️❤️ keep being awesome! ...
“He says that woman speaks with nature. That she hears voices from under the earth. That wind blows in her ears and trees whisper to her. That the dead sing through her mouth and the cries of infants are clear to her. But for him this dialogue is over. He says he is not part of this world, that he was set on this world as a stranger. He sets himself apart from woman and nature.⠀
And so it is Goldilocks who goes to the home of the three bears, Little Red Riding Hood who converses with the wolf, Dorothy who befriends a lion, Snow White who talks to the birds, Cinderella with mice as her allies, the Mermaid who is half fish, Thumbelina courted by a mole. (And when we hear in the Navaho chant of the mountain that a grown man sits and smokes with bears and follows directions given to him by squirrels, we are surprised. We had thought only little girls spoke with animals.)⠀
We are the bird's eggs. Bird's eggs, flowers, butterflies, rabbits, cows, sheep; we are caterpillars; we are leaves of ivy and sprigs of wallflower. We are women. We rise from the wave. We are gazelle and doe, elephant and whale, lilies and roses and peach, we are air, we are flame, we are oyster and pearl, we are girls. We are woman and nature. And he says he cannot hear us speak.⠀
But we hear.”⠀
