This little boy can be a challenge... our brains work so very differently! But the last two days have been our best yet! He and his baby brother have been playing relatively peacefully the majority of the day. Liam has begun understanding the concepts of selflessness and compassion better than ever and I know his brother is thankful too! He's growing up so fast! 💙 #raisingolmsteds#spirited#playtime#liamjames#playdoh
RISE IN PRACTICE.
I CARRY creating a new set of I AM affirmations to meet my present self where I AM NOW + inspire my creative spirit to continue evolving + growing. I CARRY a collection of "little bits" that ground me + the finding of 3 wooden leaves that when I went to pay for them I was told I had points to redeem at @artmaterialsfargo - exactly the amount of the cost of the leaves - I smiled - blessings - a moment of feeling aligned in love - with love. I CARRY the love for @stabilo yellow colored markers - this is my LIGHT when I journal - I use this when I AM practicing For-giveness journaling + write the words I FOR-GIVE over the black ink to SHINE the light on what NOW IS - a miracle. I CARRY the love to document where I have stood on my journey + the knowing how I have always seen my life through photographs - capturing the space + love within the frame around me. I CARRY the anticipation of the arrival of my NEW course on I AM affirmations + how to use + practice them in 8 areas of your life + the journey of creating + editing the words + guidance I CARRY within my heart-space.
I invite you to PRACTICE WITH ME + number 1-108 in a journal. Each line will begin with I AM + then add a word/s to create a positive affirmation. Focus on positive energy + be brave - listen to your creative spirit - you will hear your truth ... ask yourself what you most need + journal it as an I AM affirmation. Be patient - this is the practice. I AM enough. I AM following my heart. I AM creating a new path.... on the artofdailypractice.com under ABOUT - RESOURCES there are free downloads of the affirmation word lists I use in my workshops FOR YOU to use to guide you. Allow your list to evolve each day - add a little more. From here begin to unfold into the A PRACTICE OF AFFIRMATION + read out loud each affirmation. Yes - I know hearing your own voice in the beginning makes you feel all the "feels" keep going.... this is the heart of "practice" - let it beat wildly through you.
#MOOD Everything was going good. Then I woke up fighting for my life. You go to the #doctors & they can't even tell you what's wrong with you. They just make shit up & #experiment on you. #Please do yourself a favor, and this applies to everyone. My last few #episodes really changed me inside. Do not & I repeat..:DO NOT #play#games or try to do any BS to me. Hurting me is hurting my family in Haiti & I can't allow that. I don't care who you are. Family, friends, lovers, or associates. The nice Steeve isn't what you're going to receive. Don't ever take my #kindness for weakness. I'm already #fighting within myself, daily, as it is. Please. Once I stop caring, that means you've pushed me to the edge & at that point, I can't even tell you what kind of Steeve you will receive. I try my #best#everyday to #wake up & add #good vibes to the world. Do not fuck with me. Do not not try to put me down, discredit me, or sabotage anything I'm doing or working on. I will not allow that + the #universe won't allow that, either. I could be evil just like most people choose to be, but I consciously choose to be wholesome. I refuse to be weak minded / weak #spirited , or give in to any of the fuck shit. Cheers to @_veganleather for loving me #unconditionally & not judging my #ideas & way of being. I know it's not easy at all. Thank you to any & everyone who genuinely loves me. Y'all keep me going. Just know I will keep fighting as much as possible. I have so many people to aid & help, so I will keep going. 👨🏾🚀 #steevesamlive#blessed#alive#elevationonly#aimhighlaylow#pain#ill#cbd#thc#health#focused#love#motivation
I just had to snap this pic for the memory books. In my eyes, she already is a chef/botanist/entomologist, amongst other wonderful things. Some days can be so draining with 3 outspoken, "spirited" kids, but still, I have to remind my myself to encourage these little stars of mine as much as possible. 🙌 #spirited#girlpower#2ndgrade#kidgoals#kidcursive

Spotted on I-5 near Portland last night. We had a few old Impalas growing up. Dad would snag cars on a whim on a Friday check with OT. Pissed mom off every time. The first oil change I ever did was on a 63. Grandpa showed me how to wash corroded parts that day with gasoline. I skipped school once with a boy hiding in one of those cars. He spilled a can of coke in the giant chrome center console. It sat for a month. I didn't after Dad found out. 🌸♥️
