Today, I’ve been in a serious #reflectivemood. #WhenTheySeeUs by #visionarydirector#AvaDuvernay is so inspiring—even with it being painful. Sometimes the ugly needs to be addressed to get to the other side. The #exoneratedfive (formerly #CentralParkFive) is a story of #humantriumph. Despite the despicable things done to those #powerfulmen, they are here—with a commitment to be #beacons. That IS Amazing. *
I respect @ava ✊🏾 so much (you are a queen 👑 sister) for showing the humanity of it all. These men, once boys aren’t just names in a case, they are human beings—each with a #personalnarrative. Ava brought that to light. I really did the #dignity in that!!! It’s made me (#morethanever) want to share my own story of triumph. *
I cried when I watched the interrogations of the young boys in @whentheyseeus. I watched the #CentralParkFiveDoc with my children years ago and had seen some of the actual tapes, but the brilliant acting in When They See Us brought out the stresses of these minors—in a very profound way. I have my own experience in kind that I will bring to film. *
I want to share content that #informs and #inspires. I’m so on that! If you know there is something in you, honor that. Don’t look for the #accolades or any outside #validation, do it because you love yourself enough to honor your own #integrity. ✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾 *
It's early I know, but I miss my dad.
There is so much I want to share with you!
After a few days of deep contemplation and a mindset deep dive, I have SO MUCH wanting to come out!
Know that you are loved (always have been!) Know that you are enough just the way you are.
Know that you are totally worthy.
Know that it is SAFE to be yourself and go after your dreams.
Know that everything happens for us and not to us.
Know that we wouldn’t be who we are today if we hadn’t had those experiences.
Know that YOUR TIME IS NOW.
Know that you can change the WHOLE GAME in a moment with a decision! (It’s true! I’ve done it!) Know that it is worth it!
If all this scares you, EXCELLENT!! A better life, an amazing life, comes from outside your comfort zone!
Next time the fear comes, feel it. Own it. Ask it what it’s trying to tell you. Let it go. And be grateful.
Embrace what’s next! That is where joy lives. Where life gets extraordinary.
Do something different today.
Do something that scares you today.
Be present and look for miracles.
They are coming!
I believe in you. I know there’s an amazing next step for you and it is ready right now. Go for it ❤️ I mean it! Now, GO FOR IT!!! And if you need help taking that next step, go to my bio and look up how to work with me. Or better yet, message me. Let’s talk. I’m here for you! (And BTW, I know who you are deeply, because who I wrote this to first was myself. And then I could see my clients who need to hear this as well. I know what is needed to shift. I know these thoughts and I know how to shift to get to AMAZING, because I’ve done it. And I can help you to as well!)
I’ve got so much on my mind BURSTING to come out and tell you today.
I want you to know that you are enough.
I want you to know that you can be everything and more that you’ve ever seen and admired in others - you like that quality in THEM because it is meant for YOU.
If you’re scared, that’s a GOOD thing. You’re not meant to be mediocre, and growth comes through change.
Speaking of mediocrity - it doesn’t suit you, honey. And you know it. And those thoughts you had earlier today when you wondered if you had the energy to keep going, they’re trying to keep you playing small.
Your real beauty is shining and it wants you to be yourself so you can shine your light. .
Remind yourself DAILY that you’re meant to shine.
Next time you’re scared, look up at the sky and say “thank you” for the growth.
Next time you wonder if you’re just not meant to have what you want, STOP and remind yourself what you have achieved so far. Of all of the things you once thought you’d never be able to have or achieve.
STOP, above all, telling yourself the same stories. Don’t keep telling yourself you can’t afford something. Instead, admit to yourself that you DESIRE it, and that you will MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Girl, the Universe is patiently waiting for you to get this and jump into a life of freedom and abundance. In every area.
Now go and fix that mindset. And go to the link in my bio and look up how to work with me if you need the help (or pop me a DM). I’m here for you. .
(That girl I described above... that was me. And my clients. I know her very well. And I know and see what she is capable of. And I know how to get her there😚)
"Lake View "
Funny that the name Lakeview was the name of the building in which I spent my junior and senior year of high school at Stow Highschool! It didn't have this view tho or ANY Lake view for that matter! haha ..But I look back at the ol days with a smile.. Life was so different in those days and I am grateful from where I came from , what I learned along the way, the people I loved and the people I lost as well as the time that I grew up in. Class of '87 may be far away in my rearview mirror but it's always a wonderful reflection~ 🔆

I love summer for its warm wind. This special kind of summer wind seems to be one of the most pleasant, sweet, relaxing, enjoyable and invigourating things in the universe. It is miraculous and inconceivable. It is friendly, careful and kind. It is full of affection and tenderness towards you. It is your best friend, who isn't noisy or obtrusive, but it's always here, ready to help and support, to easen the heat and tension, gently caring about your condition. As if it touches you and says "Hey, cheer up! I'm with you. Breathe, relax and move forward". It encourages you to calm down, but to be as firm and determined as you've never been before. It clears up your mind from irrelevant stuff that needed to be sent to a dustbin long ago. It helps you to stay focused, calm and energetic. I wish everyone had such a friend. #thinkingoutloud#katowice#warmwind and #reflectivemood
I’m sketching out another one of my portraits and as I draw the face for the linocut I realised that all my previous females look a bit solemn...or is it moody? Anyway I was wondering if that’s some kind of internal reflection of who I am? 🧐. Time for a coffee break 😜 #faces#portraits#reflectivemood#printmaking
Are you following my insta stories today?
You’ll see my commitment to smashing my goals... and in real-time, me hitting roadblocks and feeling more and more deflated.
Sometimes all we can do is let go for a minute... because if I know anything for sure, it is that doing something (anything) with a heavy, dense energy is never as good as with a light, happy energy!
Taking some time to re-align and then getting back to my GOALS!
It’s the little things sometimes: getting my cookbooks out of their moving box and arranging them on the counter; house plants; natural light; my favorite recipe box that was a wedding present from my best friend @jenniferrosebeauty 12 years ago.
See the beauty in your day. It can be found. Sometimes it’s as panoramic as the horizon. Sometimes it’s one ray of sunlight breaking through a thick heavy blanket of dark gray clouds. But it’s there. Just gotta have the eye for it.

Went for a quick walk around Lake Poway this evening...not feeling too great and trying to clear my head from a cold...and it rained...so now I’ll probably get a head cold or pneumonia or something. But it was so peaceful walking in the rain. The lake looked so beautiful. I was feeling in a reflective mood and this moment helped remind me there’s someone greater in control.
Yesterday afternoon was spent at #stokepogesmemorialgardens where we have a family plot. It has to be one of the most beautiful and tranquil memorial gardens in England. As kids my brother and I used to love running around - and our daughter did just that yesterday. According to Phoebe it has a touch of Harry Potter about it! The #wisteria was beautiful. The formal gardens were clipped to perfection. It’s free to everyone to visit and is the best place to go if you’re in a reflective mood. It’s right opposite Stoke Poges Golf Club too. And did you know that #judygarland is buried there? #stokepogesgolfclub#sundaywalk#reflectivemood#wisteriahysteria
Each night before I go to sleep I try to think of things that I am grateful for.Im just sitting here in my PJs having a cuppa and reflecting on the last week. 💫Last weekend was my hen party in Belfast and I got to spend it with the most amazing group of friends anyone could wish for.
💫This week I have been in Bodrum, Turkey with my fiancee finalising wedding plans with the wedding planner and I can't wait to marry my best friend(I just know I will be a blubbering mess!)
💫And next weekend I'm off to Belfast again to see Westlife in concert with my best friends.
We should all practice gratitude each morning/night as we have so much in life to be grateful for-especially the small things.
A simple girl selling bread on the rim of the main pool of the ancient Roman Baths in the city of Bath...not so easy to get this doubly ‘reflective’ photo, because alas 😜, we were not the only visitors of the museum and our girl was almost always surrounded by tourists taking selfies with her or asking questions. She was one of the actors in original costumes, going about their respective ‘businesses’ or tasks in the extremely well-preserved complex. Together with films projected onto ancient walls and other multimedia gimmicks, the museum does an outstanding job to bring history back to life. The hot thermal water which bubbles up from the ground at Bath falls as rain on the nearby hills. It trickles down through limestone to a depth of up to 4,300 metres, where geothermal energy heats it up to close to a 100 degrees°C. Under pressure, it rises back up through cracks and faults in the stone and arrives at the surface at a temperature of 46 °C. The Roman invaders constructed a temple on the site of the hot spring (which was already a place of Celtic worship) in 60–70 AD and the bathing complex was gradually built up over the next 300 years. So if you feel like seeing some male Roman citizens drop their towels and wade into the cooling pond after their bath in the hot thermal water, Bath is the place to go 😂!! If not, I hope you have other, quite as exciting diversions planned for the weekend 😜!
11 beautiful sunny miles exploring the Cumbrian fells with my big brother 😎
Latrigg, Skiddaw Little Man and Skiddaw ✅
I absolutely love being outdoors and am so fortunate to have family to visit in such a beautiful part of the country. Walking, especially up and down fells, really makes me reflect on the ups and downs of life. The challenges we face and how we accomplish them and are stronger for it, much like the climb to the top of a mountain. We never know what’s just around the corner for us so take every opportunity and cherish the journey ✨
Or in other words... press the “fuck it” button and see what happens 🙃 .
