It’s not fun to be unpopular, or to go against the grain.
The last time I was popular was when I was in third grade😂 I was very sassy and outspoken with my peers. Unfortunately I was a little brat at that time, and my best friend was one of the least popular girls, and I was unkind to her at school in front of my “cool” friends. I apologized to her numerous times when I was about eleven and for years afterwards. This was after I was pulled out of school and homeschooled, as my wise mother saw me going in a direction she didn’t wish to see me get stuck in.
After that I was no longer popular and I found out my truest friends were the less popular girls I had spent less time with at school. I still talk to my childhood best friend today, because she is the kindest and most forgiving person I know (she even made it to my wedding after years of not seeing one another😭). After I was no longer popular I didn’t desire to be again. I became more outspoken about things I found more important. As a teenager I became a peace activist and marched in protests against the Iraq war, spoke at a peace rally in front of 400 people, and traveled to Washington, DC on a bus with my mom to go to a protest with over a half million people. I also published a newsletter called The Voicebox where I published all editorials written by teenagers who were subscribers, no matter what their beliefs. (This made for some fiery and exciting exchanges throughout the life of the newsletter.) I went off to school in California when I was 16 to pursue a training in a virtually unknown stage art, eurythmy. As a teacher, I make sure I connect with every single one of my students, especially the ones who try to be invisible because they’re different. I now speak up about vaccine science and injury because I know now what I didn’t before. None of these things make me popular, but I know that each one of these things will have an impact on the world, albeit small.
I have always been passionate and love deeply, and this fuels all I do. I also stumble and make mistakes constantly, so I am continually learning to forgive myself as well as grow. Thank you for joining me on my ever evolving journey💕
Some more progress in Florida today! Keep up the good work Floridians, the more sanctuary counties and cities, the better.

Last week, Maggie’s teacher showed the class a short clip of MLK’s I Have a Dream speech. As soon as she got home, Maggie asked if she could watch the whole thing, so we pulled it up on YouTube. Then she asked if we could go to DC so she could stand on the 18th step of the Lincoln Memorial, where Dr. King stood during the speech.

I AM NO VICTIM THAT NEEDS TO BE SAVED, TAKE IT ALL…… I have not hurt so much ever than I ever have in the last three weeks.
I have been torn from the very existence of what I believed my future should have been like.
The need to be wanted by others.
The stabbing pain of loss in so many parts of my body.
Yet, I moved through it.
I had the awareness of how strong I truly am.
Where once, what would have affected me so much that it would have bought me to my knees, where I would never have thought I would have been able to get back up again.
I found faith.
I found trust.
I found deeper layers of surrender.
I found unconditional LOVE and WHOLENESS for myself!
I found MY SOUL in the core of my beating heart, and I FEEL IT, every inch of it and it RADIATES SO MUCH out of myself!! I found HOW I CAN LOVE so deeply and be hurt, move through it and choose to LOVE again.
I found HOW BEAUTIFUL this world truly is, even when my outside world is falling apart.
I found the support in the most surprising ways from so many around me, and the love they have for me.
I fell in LOVE WITH THE PAIN, and thanked it. Because, I know that it’s all happening for me, is all coming from a place of love.
I fell more in love with myself than ever before.
With my innate resilience.
With my ability too hold myself and nurture myself through the hardest of times.
I fell in love with being proud of myself, just like I am sure my father is of me.
The ability to hold space for others no matter what I am going through in my own world.
I found the deepest of pleasures even when I was hurting and unsure how to fill the hole in my heart.
I fell in love with my ability to see myself FULLY, and TO NOT ACCEPT ANYTHING LESS THAN I DESERVE!
I SEE IT ALL and I THANK IT!
I know…. I AM NO VICTIM THAT NEEDS TO BE SAVED.
You can throw stones at me, you can stab me in my side, you can truly tear me apart and I will continue to choose to pick myself back up and choose the UNCONDITONAL LOVE I have in my heart for all that is and all that will be. **Continued In comments*** #free#freedom#love#connection#desire

Do you sometimes feel you have lost your sparkle ❇️ that you have lost that zest for life?
I have definitely been there before.
We can get so focused and hectic in our lives, so busy hustling
we lose our joy,
we forget how to just have fun and let go.
We take ourselves so damn seriously and it’s actually exhausting, this is where so many of us experience burn out.
A woman’s super power is her flow, her creativity and her beauty.
It is our life force, it’s like oxygen for the soul.
When you don’t make time for play, part of you feels dead inside.
You lose motivation and inspiration, things don’t flow, you stop seeing the beauty and appreciating the little things in life.
Things can seem rather dull.
That feeling you are craving and missing is your soul calling you to play, to laugh, to dance, to sing 🎶.
It’s not something outside of you that’s going to bring you back to life, it’s you being you.
Can just have fun being more you this week?
Sing in the shower, have a dance party in the lounge, laugh with your friends, just let go, lean back and have some fun, no body is watching they are too busy on their phones.
This gorgeous feminine, gentle flow reaches in to all areas of your life, your business, your relationships, your health and wellness, it makes you glow from the inside out.
Activate the goddess inside, she is ready to come out and play.
This is your super power.
Once you can meet yourself at this deep level, the veil has been lifted and you will be able to start seeing for the first time, beyond what you’ve seen with your eyes. For everything seen with your eyes has only been an illusion of the senses. Once you are here, don’t be afraid of what you see, as you are witnessing reality for the first time, and it’s not always rainbows and gumdrops. Yet, with your ‘new’ vision, you will have a deeper understanding of the whole, and will be able to navigate forward on the path you’re on, as many here that walk this Earth are just visitors passing through, and sharing their wisdom and insight from previous dimensions and incarnations. The time is now to truly see, to see yourself for who you truly are, the unseen life force that flows through all things made manifest, and to see and know this illusionary world for what it truly is. Not to be bound to it or by it, as this stifles your eternal existence. ⠀

My goal for the last 10+ years has been to be “so ridiculously strong for my size that it doesn’t make sense”... After years of just maintaining my weight/size and losing soooo much strength, I FINALLY got my groove back 😭🙌💪 and it feels sooooo good!! “We make little girls as strong as big men, and big men as agile as little girls.” -Pavel Tsatsouline, @strongfirst 💪😆 Here’s 315lbs for 3 reps in the hip thrust, and I just KNOW that 315lb deadlift is right around the corner 🤞🤞🤞🤞

This past weekend was mind blowing at the #Runtheplayconference . So much powerful information presented and so much opportunity!
Ladies, we’re securing the bag all 2020! I’VE GOT YOUR BACK, SIS!! Let’s Work!! #ownit #runtheplay#freedom
People come to this work for all types of reasons. A lot of people come and they want to get their body healthy, but what they're really doing is getting their mind healthy and they're changing their energy.
There's this point that everyone reaches in this work where they're so happy with themselves. They're so in love with life. They're in such a state of grace and gratitude that they could care less if they have the disease because they're so happy with them. That's the moment disease goes away because they're no longer the same personality. They’re somebody else. The disease actually exists in the other person, in their old personality.
They're thinking differently. They're acting differently. They're feeling differently. And how you think, how you act and how you feel is called your personality and your personality creates your personal reality. Change your personality. It changes your personal reality.✨

A good horseman in my opinion has definitely to do with knowledge and skills, but even more with having your heart at the right place. Are you really willing to put your goals and dreams on hold if that is what your horse needs? Are you really willing to take a few steps back, if that is what your horse needs? Are you really willing to wait with riding for a few more months, If that is what your horse needs? Are you really willing to let go of everything you believed in and take a new road, if that is what your horse needs? Are you willing to dive deep into whatever it is you have to learn, if that is what your horse needs? I believe the sky is the limit when it comes to horses, but you have to be willing to put in the time, effort, love, even money. You have to be willing to leave your comfortzone, to feel uncomfortable.. in order to learn and grow. You have to be able to really get in touch with yourself and mute the chaos of the day, to be able to really connect. It is not gonna be easy, but it is totally gonna be worth it ❤️
