So @bluetifulljay310 who knows me through mutual friends and knows how I was back in the day. Is now currently in a rehabilitation center! She is getting sober! 👏🏼 She reached out to me and asked if I could go speak to her woman’s group! With out hesitation I said yes! She reached out the my friend @villegas_steve to tag along! HOWEVER 9x’s out of 10 getting @villegas_steve to go would not have been able to happen BUT because Steve is my brother and would jump up for me as I would for him I personally invited him and of course without hesitation he said yes! That he would tag along. It went really well of course towards the end the girls where whistling and what not lol but the message was beautiful and was able to have my good friend Steve witness! (He’s doing great work as an actor check him out if you haven’t yet!) MY POINT is that!!! This is just the beginning I want to fully use my platform to help and inspire! With the help of my friends in and out the industry WE ARE THE NEW WAVE!!! Thank you brother for joining me and thank you @bluetifulljay310 for reaching out! We have some amazing work coming soon! Stay tuned

Stay-at-home moms (and dads, working parents, and everyone else) deserve to thrive! Here are some ideas on how stay-at-home moms can thrive…
Find what fills you. We hear the phrase “self-care” thrown a lot, often in superficial ways like bubble baths or indulging in baked goods. These can be fun, but on their own they don't contribute to your well-being. When you're truly caring for yourself, you won’t feel the need to escape from your life. To know what fills you, ask yourself: When do I feel at peace? Does this make me feel full, or numb? Does this bring me more of what I want?
Connect with your kids. It’s easy to get caught up in the never ending to-do list, to the point where you might forget to connect with your children. There are endless ways to connect: play a board game, have a dance party, take a walk or bike ride, go out for ice cream. Make sure the connection is real. Put down the phone. Look your kids in the eyes. Be with them.
Connect with people who aren’t your kids. Whether you’re connecting with your partner or friends, it’s important to be stimulated by adult conversation. It helps you feel like an individual, rather than just a caretaker. Close relationships are good for your mind and body. Be proactive; schedule that night out before you feel like you’re going crazy!
Find a schedule that works for YOU. Parenting requires a degree of flexibility, as children are unpredictable. But without some sort of schedule, it’s easy for time to get away from you. Start with set, unmovable calendar items (school, soccer practice, etc.), then find a place for the things you want to do but don’t seem to have time for. Keep it simple. Make sure it works for you and your family!
Ask for help. Moms do so much. What could you delegate? Try using a grocery delivery service. Evaluate what your kids are capable of. If they’re older, give them a little more responsibility. Even little kids are able to take on some simple tasks. It will help both you and them in the long run. It’s an act of bravery to ask for help.
You deserve to thrive! What changes have you made in your life to help you thrive, rather than survive? Comment below or reply to our stories!

Working together with a unified mission towards a shared goal, building friendships, being pushed to grow while in a nurturing environment, being understood, increasing self-confidence and optimism, finding meaning and joy in the journey we are all on to become our best selves...
We hope these aspects of working at Ventures ATL create a community that leads to fulfillment in our employees so that they can say with conviction, "I'm proud to work at Ventures ATL!"

A foxy message! Piece of work from 2019

While being mindful certainly is about being grateful, that’s not exactly what this post is about.
My close friend found himself wandering the aisles of @austincreativereuse to get supplies for a board game he’s creating (he’s a super cool guy). He saw a large container of blank match books and immediately thought of me. He’s seen the small bowl of matches (some vintage, some new) that lives on my kitchen table. I don’t use lighters because they’re made of plastic.
He knows I’m a minimalist and that I never want “stuff.” So he got one for me and personalized it by adding that sweet message.
It completed surprised me when he gave it to me and told me his story. This was deeply meaningful to me. It’s a version of being seen for who I am, knowing that he thought about me in that moment, and wanted to exercise his creativity by adding something special to the matchbook.
You’ll hear me say this a million times in a million ways- Minimalism can and should be meaningful. It’s about values and the richness of life (not the absence of it). When was the last time you created a meaningful connection with someone you care about? .
We just need this little drip of motivation, just enough to bring things back into focus, just enough of a reminder that "Oh, yeah, that's why I'm doing it." And that even this the tiniest bit can be enough to fortify our will, to strengthen us once again, make us flush with this determination to do things that we know are good.
When that motivation is completely gone, then it's pure grind, dry, and just trying to force our way through white-knuckling that can only last for a short time.
We need that little drop of motivation, a little bit of inspiration, to get us back on track.

How often do we truly accept our bodies ? How often do we thank them? How often do we blame them for not being able to do something? We should say more often to ourselves and our bodies: “I love you”, “ I appreciate you”, “ you did great today” and this list might be endless continued. Love yourself and all people around. We’re all beautiful human beings. #thoughts#meaningful#beautifulminds#selflove#acceptance
Bright lights. Laughter resonating in the air. My ears ringing from the aftershock. I rise from my chair and carefully examine the card, a six of hearts, in front of me. I hesitate before I proclaim with confidence, “Higher.”
The card on the top of the deck is flipped over. It’s a seven. I forget if it’s a spade, club, heart, or diamond because I’m so disoriented from the loud cheers that have erupted from the spectators. Because I know it will be a long time before my turn rolls around again, I decide that now would be the time to slip into the bathroom for a quick breather.
Tonight, I’m enjoying playing a friendly game of cards, but the volume of the group is too loud for me. As a highly sensitive person (HSP), high-volume sounds induce significant discomfort. It might seem like no big deal to most people, but what’s considered “loud” to someone is “very loud” or even “too loud” for me. I can tolerate it, but only in small doses.
Aside from the overstimulation from the noise, I am also bored. Incredibly bored. This group is fun to be around, but I don’t have a lot in common with them. To me, they come off as shallow, almost as if they are hollowed out versions of a more interesting persona. Like society came in and scooped out all the substance from their minds — from their conversations.
I don’t know about you, but I need more than that.
Here's why HSPs often crave meaningful relationships, and how they help replenish their energy.

I've been thinking a lot about dignity at work.
If dignity is the quality of being worthy of respect, of feeling and being seen and acknowledged as significant, then the responsibility of dignifying others falls on the "seers" and the "acknowledgers" - all of us.
In this issue of my newsletter "The Spark," learn more about the importance and practice of dignifying others as well as how to realize your own significance.
