How often have you heard someone say, “That just made me so angry, I lost it!” or some equivalent thereof? We often excuse bad behavior by giving a voice to “it was out of my control”. However, your reaction is not out of your control. The only control you have is over your own behavior. Next time something is happening that you can’t control, stop and take a breath before you react. You’ll be glad you did. ✌🏻💕

the bracelet on the picture i‘ve got to protect me of a priest.
i still believe in it but i don‘t want to wear it anymore. you might say; are you stupid?!
no. i believe, if i come from a point of fear, it will create insecurities and they will create maybe danger or even more fear.

why is that. if i come from a mindset of fear, danger and insequirities it will magnet all this horrible and awful things into my life, because it is what i focus on. 
when i got that bracelet, i was in danger for real and maybe this gift saved me from something real bad, or maybe not. anyhow i am truly greatful for the strength and hope it gave me for quite some time. this bracelet helped me to feel powerful and strongmindet. 
but i believe in the same moment, it held (with my mindset) all the good things away in my life, because i was in the protecting mindset.

i don‘t want to protect myself anymore. too much of the good things i held back with it. too much wrong decisions i have made from that point of standing. too many lies crossed my lips. too many fears and demons i‘ve powerd up this way. 
i am not an influencer on socialmedia. i am not one of this guys who made it to the top. i am far away from who i really am but this is who i want to be, the real me. 
a person who is complete ok with himself and made peace with the journey. a men who is acountable to himself. doesn‘t matter what anyone is fucking talking about him. i don‘t want a protected, fake life. take it or leave it but thats the way it is. 
i don‘t need protection, i need myself. 
the mind is a weapon. thoughts are the bullets. —

Living in Iceland feels for me like a new beginning...
Exactly this, what I needed 4 months ago, when I moved to Iceland.

It’s day 2 of my 12 Days of Fitness group and my #1 goal is to just move my body everyday. 👌🏼 Today I took it back to the gym for one of my FAVORITE workouts...ZUMBA!!! 💃🏻 It’s like dancing in da club at 10am on a Tuesday morning! 😜
I can’t believe how much I sweat 💦 and I have a smile on my face the entire time. 😃

My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned.

My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned. +++ Seven years ago I finally graduated with my Bachelor's degree. (This pic is me on my celebratory Disney trip after graduation) It took me 7 long years of going part-time either at night or online, and I missed out on numerous social events & time with friends and family. My health obviously suffered, but I felt it was worth it. My life plan was always to get my education, although if I had stuck with my "plan," I would have had it years ago & done the typical college life. . I was full of excitement & possibilities at what the future held now that I had this little expensive piece of paper that was my biggest life achievement. . Life threw me a curveball a few years later when I got pregnant then laid off from a career job (with potential) while on maternity leave. I spiraled into a deep depression having lost all sense of who I was. I've always had goals & had to be working towards SOMETHING...but I got knocked on my ass & had no idea where to go from there. I had another curveball thrown this last year, and began to really take a hard look at myself, my future, and who I am. . While I haven't got it all figured out yet, I feel I've found my one of my life's callings: helping others. The thrill of seeing other women succeed & fall in love with themselves again is an amazing feeling. I get the opportunity to support them & help guide them to the best version of themselves. And while I have embraced motherhood & adore my lil "best friend" Quinn, I needed to be something else besides a "Quinn's Mommy." I needed my own identity & I've found that in being an online health coach. . Life doesn't go as planned, right? My "plan" definitely didn't pan out, but in the end, that's okay. If you can relate & need a supportive fitfam and a cheerleader in your corner who believes in you & your potential, let's chat.

Advent Calendar Day 11 ~ Who knew that the oil from a tree could be so beneficial to your health and wellness? Surprisingly, cedarwood essential oil has anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antifungal, tonic, astringent, diuretic, sedative and insecticidal properties. 
My favorite use is diffusing with Lavender for sleeping! 🛌 😴 It works!!! Whether you are using Cedar oil topically or aromatically to improve skin imperfections, to keep insects at bay, or to promote vitality during a workout, the uses and benefits of this oil are almost limitless. 👱🏻‍♀️🐜 🏋🏻‍♀️ #ChristmasIsComing

There are always going to be trials and tribulations! Life always gives us set backs! How we overcome them is what defines us. .
.
I have lost a ton of people in my life both friends and family. There was a point where I felt life was not worth living. I blamed myself for a lot. I felt I was being punished for something. I didn’t know what that something was but “why else would this be happening to me?”, I’d ask myself.
.
.
When I became pregnant with my last little boy, I still felt hopeless... like it wasn’t going to last. It didn’t last time! I thought, “Why should I have another baby when I lost the previous one?” Emilio became my rainbow baby. My ray of hope. My crazy, loud, cute ray of hope! Maybe there was something worth living! I had 3 boys who needed me. I started to see that! I decided to make myself a priority because how could I take care of them if I wasn’t taking care of myself first! You can’t pour from an empty glass!
.
.
I continue to lose... but I choose to live! You will lose people in life! It IS a part of life. It teaches you to grow! I’m not saying it gets easy! It doesn’t! But you HAVE to grow! There is a reason you’re here! Find that reason! It may take a while but enjoy the journey! You will have pride in yourself. You will have hard times, happy times, sad, frustration... all of the feelings! But don’t let the negative feelings consume you. Feel the feelings. You’re human. You have a right to feel the way you do. But don’t unpack and stay in that negative space! Find something that makes you happy! Do it! Just fucking do it! .
.
What helped me...
💖Taking steps to grow...
💖Surrounding myself with people who stood behind me and cheered me on 💖Taking time for myself and reading personal development 💖Working out because that truly is cheaper than therapy!
💖Going to therapy! Talking to someone! It truly helps. 💖Repeat all of those things! You will always continue to grow as long as you are on this earth so take advantage and grow!
.
Talk to me anytime if you need!

This past month has been one of the most humbling experiences to date. I’m bending. Oh, God—I am truly bending! But, looking at my credit score brings me so much joy because this is something that no one can take away from me. I worked hard for this one. Almost to the 800 club ☺️☺️☺️

✨The Triumph of Sablika✨
During the 17th and 18th centuries, the primary business of the island of Curaçao was the slave trade. On August 17th, 1795 a legendary slave rebellion started on the Knip plantation under the leadership of Tula and Bazjan Karpata, that gave rise to a month-long conflict on the island between escapees and the colonial government. Over a thousand slaves joined the revolt and fought for their rights. There was one exceptional female figure who became part of this rebellion and who gave this battle an interesting twist; Sablika. As a free woman, she gave her heart by fighting for freedom, unity and fraternity. 
Sablika was a leader, an educator, a strong fearless woman, who beside her own freedom and believed in fighting for the freedom of others. Her courage, leadership and strength made her a true role model for our local female generation. 
The Triumph of Sablika stands for women’s empowerment. Women’s empowerment is the process in which women elaborate and recreate what they can be, do and accomplish in circumstances that were denied previously. 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾

SELF CARE

What does self care mean to you?

I'm not really a bubble bath and pamper days kind of girl. I've never been to a spa and girls nights out just feel like a lot of work. With two small children and a small business that requires social media to survive, there's a lot of physical and virtual noise in my head. One of my kids pressed share before I was finished with the caption lol. 
So self-care for me is solitude. Internal and external quiet. It means cutting out toxic influences and people and removing things that don't serve me. It also means introspecting and acknowledging and taking responsibility for the times I've hurt others. And then getting out of my own head.

Calligraphy helps me get out of my head. It tunes the world out until all that's left is the scratch of nib on paper and the sheen of drying ink. The satisfaction of seeing the rich thick strokes and the delicate thin strokes appear on a fresh sheet of paper is completely immersive. It's very rewarding and very relaxing. 
If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it. And if you have, and you're feeling stressed or wound up right now, grab a cup of your favourite drink or brew, get your pens and ink, and let the strokes flow. Write out the lyrics to your favourite song or poem (Still I Rise by Maya Angelou is my go to). Forget about perfection, just let it all go.

“Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
’Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.” -Maya Angelou #phenomenalwoman #stillirise #mom #momlife #love #instagood #instadaily #photooftheday #nurse #nurselife #motivation #selfie

GOOD MORNING WORLD!❤️ #dhtheleague #goodmorning #goodmorningatlanta -Still I rise , poem heavy on my heart this morning , and this beautiful soul may she Rest In Peace. @drmayaangelou has been SUCH an inspiration to me and for me my entire life . I used to write poetry, which led me to creative design and THIS beautiful woman was WHY she helped me SEE how beautiful being a Woman is. When I was going through hard times I would listen to her audios and read her books, Although never being able to meet this woman she changed my life AND I THANK YOU FOR THAT🙏🏽💕

My favourite thing in the mind bending exhibition Still I Rise: Feminisms, Gender, Resistance @nottm_contemp was this piece by Faith Ringgold, Marlon Riggs: Tongues Untied, 1994 remembering the artist’s filmmaker friend who had recently died from an AIDS related illness. The work incorporates quotes and images of his influences including Audre Lorde #faithringgold #marlonriggs #tonguesuntied #josephbeam #lyleashtonharris #stillirise #audrelorde

Back to that election period, I felt deluded, disappointed, and angry. It was personally difficult to accept the truth and to admit that my parents are right all along. However I realized that one election doesn’t define everything and so much has already been achieved. Still we rise. It’s not about who you support in politics or that specific leader and specific ideology or agenda. It’s about progress in a holistic way and the spirit to keep moving on. Shout out to @kcburson for giving me this beautiful gift and her awesome mom for creating this! Wohoo 🙌🏻 ❤️ #gift#friends#stillirise#mayaangelou#iamwithher#equality#wethrive#betheexample#proud#bunnyburson#spirit#goodvibes#confetti#snowball#meaningful#javitscenter#glassceiling#happy#grateful😁

Art Poster dedicated to Maya Angelou's

Art Poster dedicated to Maya Angelou's "Still I Rise." For me, Maya Angelou's emotive poem is a source of strength in the face of adversity and a liberating force from the shackles of stereotypes. It is a mantra that inspires black people to rise with courage and succeed against all odds. It is no wonder Nelson Mandela read this poem at his inauguration in 1994—I guess the poem mirrored his travails with the apartheid government and his unrelentless effort to ensure a free South Africa. . . . . . . . . . . #artposter #typography #graphicdesign #artistsoninstagram #art #stillirise #nigerianartist
