Brasher asked me "why did they tear up our yard??" as we are filling in holes left by the stump grinder. "Sometimes things have to get worse before they get better, buddy". Then I was like, man, that was deep... #wisewords#childlabor
Today I pulled the card, Healing Sounds. Music is powerful. Sounds and tones can elicit healing at a cellular level. I think today we will pull out the guitars. I will also play around on my DJ gear and fill the space here with sounds of hope. Sounds of faith. Sounds of Joy. Mancos Valley will vibrate with these healing sounds today.
Love this quote by @yoga_girl Rachel Brathen: "Balance is key in everything you do. Dance all night long and practice yoga the next day. Drink wine but don’t forget your green juice. Eat chocolate when your heart wants it and kale salad when your body needs it. Wear high heels on Saturday and walk barefoot on Sunday... Move and stay still. Embrace all sides of who you are and live your authentic truth! Be brave and bold and spontaneous and loud and let that complement your abilities to find silence and patience and modesty and peace. Aim for balance. Make your own rules and don’t let anybody tell you how to live according to theirs." 🙌 #wisewords#balance#lifebalance#womenshealth#holisticliving#balancedlife
When you speak and own what's true for you, no one can argue with you. I used to dance around why I choose to live alcohol free because I was afraid of what people would think. But one day I let go of caring what people thought and instead cared about what I thought. I started caring about how I feel. I started speaking my truth. People ask why I don't drink and I tell them the truth. I used to have a pretty gnarly cocaine habit and I knew alcohol was its accomplice. It hated how it made me feel. I suffered from anxiety disorder and panic attacks which were mostly induced by my addictions. And above all I knew if I continued down that path I would probably be meeting my tombstone ahead of schedule. Once I started to own those truths I realized I couldn't get it wrong. No one can argue with you when you speak your truth. Because it's YOURS. And there is nothing wrong with stepping up to own how and why you live your life on your terms based on what works and doesn't work for you. It truly is such a beautiful thing when you understand that it's your life and you get to choose how you want to live it. The world doesn't need more people shrinking back and hiding. What we need is more people who are unapologetic about their truths, even the messy ones. 💜✨
