No matter how many times I’ve looked at the world from this point of view it never ceases to amaze me. It’s no wonder that when people envision heaven in their dreams this is what it consists of. Coincidentally, as I’m staring out the window in amazement I start listening to a podcast that is all about seeing the world from another perspective. It starts off with a story about a dinner party that is interrupted by a man, with a gun, demanding money and holding said gun to the heads of multiple people in the group....the only problem was, no one had any money to give him. So, unexpectedly, a woman at the table offers him a glass of wine, instead. Probably even more unexpectedly, the man accepts and the encounter ends with a group hug and the man apologizing to everyone present. Pretty crazy, right? The podcast then goes on to tell the story of an Islamic man that has been harassed on multiple occasions, had his home searched by the police for signs of terrorism (although none were found) and then has his mom dies of a heart attack soon after, which he blames on the the police presence in his home and the accusations of terrorism. After that he came to the conclusion, “you want a terrorist, I’ll give you a terrorist” and fled to Syria where he joined the jihad. In the end, he denounces that lifestyle and returns to the United States. However, I was intrigued with the very different outcomes of the stories and how when faced with hostility, instead replying with warmth and in the second the hostility from strangers causing even more hostility in someone else. Stories like this make me question how my actions could be affecting other people and am I doing my best to face hostility with warmth in everyday life? Not to get too deep or anything 💭😝 #invisibilia #flipthescript

FLIP THE SCRIPT!
After a stressful 48 hours, I’m looking to turn my day around, and nothing does it better than looking around and realizing how much GOOD is in my life. ❤️
Today I’m thankful for professional, compassionate, and funny colleagues.
I’m thankful for a partner who brings calm to my crazy.
And I’m thankful for the chance to dance it out at the Concert For Dreams featuring @ofarevolution
What are YOU thankful for today, friends?

"It's so good to be home", she informed me the other night. My heart was so happy. •
There was a period of time when they were first spending time away from me - okay well before that, when I was thinking about the possibility of a separation and how that would affect my relationship with the girls where I was in total fear of them choosing one of us over the other. •
That type of thinking is referred to as thinking in terms of lack, or scarcity. That's there's not enough to go around, that every situation involves a win or lose scenario. This type of thinking can be applied to any area of our life from relationships, to money, to business. •
The more that we truly hold the believe that there is more than enough to go around for everybody, the more that we can have peace in knowing and truly believing we can be happy for other people's success, that people can love us and someone else at the same time, and the more we will focus on all of the positive things in our life's rather than letting what we perceive to be negative things detract us from our happiness and success. •
How does this relate to Delaney's comment you might ask? I've learned that I don't have to be in fear of her wanting to go to her Dad's. It is totally okay, and in fact I am thankful that she's happy to go there, and that she gets to have a strong relationship with him. She gets to have both, and as a Mom (and especially one who doesn't have a relationship with her own Dad), it makes my heart so happy for her that she gets what I always wanted for myself. Her relationship with him or anyone else doesn't take away from our relationship together. •
Simply flipping our thoughts to those of more of an abundance mindset in any situation is seriously life altering. •
It is freeing to be able to be thrilled for someone else's success, while still knowing that yours is totally possible because that person has literally shown you that it is! Think of them as someone you can learn from, rather than someone you are jealous of. •
It's a daily practise as you begin to shift into this type of thinking (especially if you're like me, because it's literally re-training your brain!). #flipthescript
Don’t allow doubt to run your life. Remind yourself that it is simply a pattern you have learned and you can break it. Each time doubt surfaces, redirect your thoughts until you replace them with empowering beliefs!
To be successful at a lifestyle such as this we have to be willing to #flipthescript
on the BS we keep feeding ourselves.
So many times did I say “I’m ready to make a change” yet at the same time I REFUSED to QUIT making excuses. Excuses as to why I had no time, couldn’t eat ever so many hours, how I didn’t have the money to live this lifestyle...#blahblahblah
When I stepped back and took RESPONSIBILITY and then strategized how to make it happen... by SACRIFICING a tiny bit (like less tv, getting up early, setting alarms on my phone reminding me to eat)
That’s when it became my lifestyle. 🤘#breakthecycleofdestruction
Três meses de dedicação , comprometimento e da formação de um grupo fantástico de pessoas com uma nova mentalidade... Testar nossos limites e melhorar todos os dias foi o grande desafio ! Muito obrigado por tudo !
Never did I understand people’s obsession with the gym. How could someone WANT to work out? Why can’t you miss a day? Confident to say it was complete ignorance. On days where I feel like nothing is going right or I just want to tear my hair out.. or someone elses, I get to come here and put my focus elsewhere. Today I did my first pull up on this machine that will remain nameless because I just don’t know it, but I flipped the script on my shitty day and made it a win

Single parenting is hard. I’ve got it all under control until I just don’t. Most days it flows & I feel like a super hero who can do anything. Other days I’m defeated & tired and just want someone else at home to make the lunches or give me a hug. I listened to my neighbors scream and fight all night ( which is extremely triggering ) I woke up to some weird unexpected money problems, didn’t get my workout in before work, accidentally made my shake out the door with warm water 🤢, I was late YET AGAIN to Fisher’s school, we left his homemade lunch at home & then I took it out on him 😔 I had a good couple of cries all before 9am. I sat in my car and took lots of deep breaths and said I CHOOSE AGAIN. I am doing my best, I am grateful for a roof over my head, a car that drives Fisher to school, food in our tummies and the ability to work doing things I love which will bring me more money. I live a life of abundance and money flows in & out. I am grateful for my friends & fellow mamas that support me & know the drill. I am grateful to my boyfriend for letting me vent and helping me anyway he can. I am grateful for all the people who I get to make smile today. When you stop and choose again, you can literally change your state & emotions. I encourage you to think about 5 things that are AWESOME in your life and give yourself some credit! Ok Thursday - we got this ⚡️
Good morning, world. I hope everyone has had a great week up until this point. I love this picture/quote because the word train tells me I am going to have to put in effort. Throughout our lives it seems like we notice the negative a lot more and a lot easier. We need to "look" for the positive, as if it is hiding from us. I am hoping we can all Flip The Script and train our minds to notice the good/positive that is constantly surrounding us.
#thedailydoseofdavid #seethegood #flipthescript #trainyourmind #livepositively #enjoylife
this Monday, 3/26/18, and open yourself up to what can happen when you share honestly about what plagues you, and make a commitment to others to turn it around. See you there! #turnitaroundproject
Everyone has the same amount of hours in the day & everyone is busy! It’s what you do with those hours that count ✨✨
We’re all in control of our own future & our decisions each day alter that future. We were on a path that was less than healthy so we totally changed our lifestyle & our lives are so much better for it. It wasn’t easy but nothing that’s worth having it is 🙌🙌

Lu Sutton Elementary School are you as excited as we are? Monday kicks off your Do Good. Be Kind. WEEK! See you soon!
Halfway to the weekend, again. A few more days to make this week great. Finish off strong. Whatever you are dealing with, perspective means everything. If you want to have a positive experience, have a positive perspective. Even negative situations can be looked at in a positive way. So, no matter what happens if you keep a positive perspective your experience will also be positive. We need to flip the script on our minds and think more positively, more regularly. We are hardwired to easily see the negative all around. Let's change that fact. I want all of us to notice the positive that is actually surrounding us at all times.
