What I’ll miss most about this side of the world is it’s charm. There’s something magical when you walk through old areas of England. The beautiful architecture never fails to take my breath away. So much history hidden inside the walls of all these buildings. ✨ #steadfastsociety#prettycitybirmingham

Celebrated with a burger after getting the chance to talk to a room full of Latinx interns in DC. We talked about identity, the importance of showing up, and how in the eternal battle of self vs family it’s not only okay, but also encouraged, to prioritize your happiness. We all deserve to be happy without guilt attached to it. ✨
too often, we rely on “feeling motivated” + when the “go get ‘em” feeling is gone— we slow down, shrink back, or quit. _ but, if we’re going to watch our dreams make impact in the world — we cannot rely on “feeling motivated.” we must tap into something more dependable— SELF DISCIPLINE. _ because, truth be told, while “making magic in the world” sounds whimsical— it is fueled by self-discipline, by conquering self, and not letting your feelings dictate your actions. “making magic” requires us to show up every day, rolling up your sleeves, and putting in the hard work despite what we feel. _ this week, on #thedaringromantics podcast, i am sharing 10 things that i do daily in order to develop self-discipline within myself so that i can put in the work to reach my goals. _ we aren’t born with discipline, it’s something we have to learn + practice. but, if we can master it — we’ll be unstoppable. because self-discipline will carry us to our dream when motivation can’t. _ ❤️🌹🍷NEW EPISODE: No. 34 “self discipline will carry you when motivation fails you” now on iTunes, spotify, stitcher! _ #theeverydaygirl#becomingwild#thedaringromantics#workparty#girlsborntotravel#femalepreneur#iamher#belonganywhere#bedeeplyrooted#thecreativeaffair

T H I R D T R I M E S T E R | Where has the time gone? Last October I had a feeling I wasn’t done having children. In November, December, January we tried and tried to bring a 4th in to being. And now suddenly it’s July and there’s only three months left to wait. Fastest. Pregnancy. Ever. I just want time to slow down a little bit to bottle up these last few months as a family of 5. Life with a newborn is going to come fast and furious and sometimes I can’t believe it’ll be here at all.
What makes your soul come alive? Have you given yourself permission to explore? To ask God what He crafted in you? . Might this be a point of permission to live in the wide open space of asking of the Lord what makes your heart pitter patter as you dream of what you were born to contribute to the world. He doesn’t make mistakes. . Maybe the misstep was on our part in thinking we have nothing to offer. . Yes. Find that space to ask of Him. Then walk confidently in that journey alongside of your Creator to live your vibrant existence. It has nothing to do with making art or preconceived notions that creativity is solely about paintbrushes or composing words. . It has EVERYTHING to do with you being made in the image of the ultimate Creator who generously gifted you to operate fully in passion and purpose. Does this speak to your heart? Let me know! . . . 📷: @jamescurlin
When you get struck by a cold that lasts all week. 😢 . Not the funnest week, but finally reset over to a new email automation system which I love soooo much more! . To better days and healthier weeks! 💪 💥 😁
• a random assortment of things i’m concerned about, pt. 1: ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ where is our food actually coming from? what kind of nourishment and care is it receiving? who is tending it, and are they doing it responsibly? and i’m just talking about the plants! don’t get me started on the meat question. i’m still grappling with it and have exactly 0% clarity. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ speaking of which, my relationship with food isn’t great either. i have a theory that years of disordered eating as a teen left me terrified of any sense of being “restrictive” because i know i have a tendency to take it too far. but the result has been a complete lack of moderation in my life for, i dunno, the last decade? it’s like i sit down to every meal (and belly up to every bar) like it’s my last. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ i would be so screwed in a post-apocalyptic world. i don’t know what’s edible vs what’s poisonous, i’m not very handy/crafty, and i sure as shit couldn’t outrun the zombies. i would basically be the weird rambly philosopher-type character in the group that’s always spouting off hypothetical shit about the situation. y’know, the character that’s always basically the first to die. 😳 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ what legacy am i building? am i wasting this precious life being one of the sheeple? i know i have big work to do in this life, because i have ALWAYS known “what i want to be when i grow up.” but i watch too much tv and spend not enough time doing the things i always say i wish i were doing. how do we get out of the trap of always being plugged in and instead fill our lives with more space, more intention? ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ - - - - - ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #reallife#keepinitreal#michaelpollan#omnivoresdilemma#alifeofintention#creativewomen#liveonpurpose#ohwowyes#herestothecreatives#theeverydaygirl#iamhertribe#feelfreefeed#perfectlyimperfect#grownasswoman#womensspirituality#calmversation#thefreewoman#wildwoman#womenwhorunwiththewolves
Sometimes the best way to gain perspective is to step away from life as you know it. Give yourself the chance to remeet who you are when your day to day life isn’t imposing on you. I laughed all the way through day 1 of a long weekend in DC, it’s nice to meet me.
