Offering myself the constant reminder, that I will walk again, move again, flow through my practice again. A dramatic and non-negotiable slowing down has been required. >>> I’ve not been able to walk without a home-made crutch since Friday night, after going to a chiropractor to help with an existing injury; he made it far worse and more painful than I’ve known before. There’s been nothing for me to do but rest. >>> While my mind wants to spin out over the work I’m missing, the boxes that need unpacking, and a myriad other things, I’ve been forced to just stop. Things have surfaced. Clarity, perspective, a lot of tears that needed to come out have flowed. >>> I’ve learned that in general, I move too fast. I don’t let myself cry enough. Since my diagnosis 3 years ago I’ve never had time off, for there are always bills and rent to pay. In the past 6 months I’ve been through more stressful change than I have in almost 3 years. A much deeper change is being called for here. >>> Im learning, the work of healing requires both effort and surrender. A constant redirecting of thoughts, from focus on pain to focus on wellness. Allowing deeply, a sense of empathy, for all I’ve endured that need not be labelled pity, but rather, self-love. >>> A willingness to go in to the pain and feel, listen, breathe. A willingness to adjust my self practice from movement-focused to breath focused. Breath is Prana. I feel Gratitude for so many things I took for granted. True health is a daily practice of integrating all our layers. Setting goals, never my thing but today, my goal is to leave the house and make a trip to the market. Wish me luck! 💜 #begrateful
A little bit of me time ☺️ . . It wasn’t until I lived with 11 gals in one large house in California 😳🙃, all of whom were from different countries around the world, that I began to appreciate the enjoyment of food and taking my time over it. ☺️ . . American culture is very GO GO GO with pretty much every restaurant having a drive-thru, we are always eating and drinking on the go, hardly taking time to sit and actually be still and be conscious of what we are consuming. 🙃 . . The gals who I lived with loved taking things slow, preparing meals, conversing, laughing, eating together (yes...all 11 of us 😊). I learned such a valuable lesson in that year, that food is more than fuel between events in a busy life, but it is enjoyment, community, the core of so much of what we do in life. 😁 . . Taking time over my lunch today while the little one sleeps is an easy way to take a deep breath, care for my own need for quiet and rest and to enjoy good food! 😊. . . Take time to slow down and enjoy food and enjoy moments! ❤️ . . . #enjoyfood #enjoylife #enjoymoments #slowdown #perspective #rest #quiet #community #momcare #parentcare #selfcare #quiet #nourish #nurture #nutrition #nutritionistblogger #cohunutrition
When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing - just sitting looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle playing in the park?✨✨ Ralph Marston . 📷: @piannenicoles . . . . #inspirationalquotes #ralphmarston #yogainspo #findpeace #findpeacewithin #slowdown #relaxing #relaxation #goodenergy #goodvibetribe #goodenergyflow #goodenergyiscontagious #dogoodintheworld #alwaysdobetter #alwayssmile #behappy #bebettertomorrow #bebettertoday #helptheworld #findtimeforyourself #findtimeforyourself #findyourpassion #findyourpurpose #findyourstrength #findyourcoast #beachpics

A simple planting of two perennials at an urban church. Take a moment today to slow down, be present, connect with nature, and appreciate the beauty surrounding you. Doing this can transform your day. #wellbeing #slowdown #nature #flowers #bepresent #healthylifestyle #perennials #urbangardening #consciousness #philadelphia

Amei essas placas de sinalização... Com exceção das avenidas - por onde passa o ônibus/bonde - todas as outras ruas são residenciais, calmas. Você está a poucos passos de tudo e, ao mesmo tempo, longe da muvuca, do barulho. #traffic #slowdown #driveslowly #calmingzone #oakwoodvillage #torontobubble #toronto #torontolife #canada #signplaque
Catastrophic living has us default to thoughts of impending disaster and negativity. Not saying that with access to news via CNN, (constant negative news- thank you @drchristianenorthrup for that CNN descriptor)that it is easy to focus on being positive however isn’t it worth the effort? Where we place our attention our energy goes. By raising our energy vibration we can positively impact those around us and have greater influence in that way than focusing on the negative. Choose to see what’s going right in your day and life and to see the good in others, just for today. Can you commit to choosing to do it differently? After all, in the words of @drphil ”how’s it been working out for you” this far. What works for you to shift your perspective? Share below and truly, have a great day!❤️ #happymonday #choice #lookforthegood #attention #wellness #inspiration #lifegetsbetter #slowdown #selfcare #love #gratitude #focusonthepositive #busymoms #busyness #reflect #health #mentalhealth #powerofthemind #guelphauthor #exploretransformflourishbook

A therapeutical Sunday in Lavender fields 🌿 ~ When I was a little girl I used to see huge lavender fields in magazines or cards and they seemed so magical and so far away! I never imagined one day I will be walking in these fields 💚 Last year I realized that I live only a half an hour away from such an astonishing place! I felt in love with this place and here we are again, enjoying peaceful and relaxing environment in Somerset Lavender farm second year in a row. ~ After walk in lavender fields we had lunch in a farm's café, where Melita enjoyed homemade Lavender lemonade and Almond Lavender cake. This girl has a very special relationship with lavenders - she is completely obsessed! She has a lavender stuffed little pillow and aromatherapy lavender roll, so no doubts, she was very impressed with our day! 💚 ~ Such huge magic in such a little flower 🌿 • • • #experiencesoverthings #lapepablog #lapepatravels #ecotourism #greenlife #ecoblog #authenticliving #slowlived #slowdown #outdoors #naturalliving #greenblogger #greentraveller #welivetoexplore #lavenderfields #summervibes #mothethoodthroughinstagram #motherhoodunited #motherhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #motheranddaughter #momentstoremember #sustainableliving #ethicalliving #greenparent
It’s so easy to only think of the years with tiny humans as exhausted, messy, and worn. I mean, it is all of those things, but so much more. When I remember these years with my littles, this is what I want to remember. These snuggles and moments of quiet. Just me and my babe. Gosh, there is nothing like it. The honor of being mama to these girls will never be lost on me. . #morejolouiseplease #motherhood #momlife #fromwhereinurse #liveauthentic #slowdown #girlmom #motherhoodunited

Gisteravond een heerlijk tuindiner bijgewoond met @lieshoutbas en @tannekeouboter en onze kinderschare (zes in totaal, we zijn aardig op weg naar een voetbalelftal). Echt ontspannen bijpraten was er misschien niet helemaal bij met zoveel kindjes die allemaal een andere kant op struinden maar dat maakt het genieten er niet minder om op zo’n prachtplek 🌾🌻🌱 #tuinderijamelishof #tuindiner #vakantiegevoel #organicfood #freshfood #buitenleven #struinendoordetuinen #gooutside #liveoutside #loveoutside #growinguptogether #grandefamilia #slowdown #slowliving

Part of our little backyard veggie garden became an all-you-can-eat buffet for a local groundhog this weekend. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Salvaged some carrots he missed and, although they're not full grown, was stoked to see the color variety! 🌈 Hoping purple carrots may be as enticing to my kids as they were to our uninvited guest. 🤞

As we started to document the development of our project, so many pictures have been taken during the year. So I decided to conserve the best moments in a photo book. I tested @saal_digital (Werbung/ unpaid product testing).

This place at this time on this day 😍 I have a heart bursting with love for the way the sun hits this big ol country in such different ways 💕 It’s got me thinking about sunsets here and the sunsets in WA, not as a comparison but as a ‘holy smokes this blows my mind’ kind of way. What an incredible country and world we live in 🌏☀️
This new devotional is kinda perfect for me right now in this phase of life. Breathing Room. Makes me sigh even saying the name! “Pursuing a pace that will finally give you peace.” 💜. @sandrawstanley this is perfect. #breathingroom #peace #goodmorning #love #slowdown #life

Today was a slow day. In the best way! My daughter was awake from 1-4am and I decided to cancel everything & do very little. It has been one of the most lovely, connected days in a while. We ambled to a lovely cafe, ate a brownie, read books about mindfulness & emotional intelligence, ambled to another cafe collecting leaves, flowers & shoots then cruised home in the sunshine and began what can only be described as a laminating bender! We made sun catchers with our pieces from nature (🌿🌿we will be doing this in Art Lab next term!🌿🌿) & I also recycled her rejected bits of bleeding tissue paper to make a mobile for my unborn baby. It was a day of creativity, nature, inspiration, going with the flow & hilarious banter (‘mum we have a ferocious tree that drops bobbaglobbas in the car’) & emphatic conversations. These are the moments I feel utterly privileged to have been chosen as her mother. To BE a mother. It feels like the best role in the world on days like this. #natureplay #slowdown #parentingslowly #sensoryart #natureart #conversationswithmydaughter #sensoryplay #naturalworld #childinnature #mindfulness #resilience #emotionalintelligence #mothernature #motherdaughtertime #motherhood #mama

Once I changed how I thought about working out and eating better, it changed everything. It's not that I HAVE to move my body - it's that I GET to. I'm GRATEFUL to have this ONE body that God gave to me, so I NEED and WANT to take good care of it. I don't HAVE to fill my body with proper vitamins and nutrients - I GET to have some of the best foods and supplements out there. I get to SEE the changes my physical body is going through by making healthy CHOICES on my intake. I've been learning where to say no and why. My choices matter. I'm working out just 4 days a week, but my nutritional choices are daily and I choose to do my absolute best. Does that mean I'm spot on 100% of the time? Heck no. I enjoy my beer on the weekend and my dessert through the week, too! Balance. It's not depriving yourself, it's choosing. Mindset is crucial in your journey. Choose to be your best you today 🔅 · · · #PositiveVibes #MorningMotivation #ChildOfGod #HealthyChoices #HomeFitness #GirlBoss
Life’s little reminders to stop. Actually stop. And enjoy...the taste of coffee & great conversation with a new friend. I am in love with where my life is going...which is...I have no idea where! I just feel content and that there is a divine plan for me and I am in love with this day. This moment ❤️ Have a beautiful day friends and enjoy wherever your day takes you.

And just like that, he’s 9. ❤️ . Honestly - where does the time go? I just can’t wrap my head around the fact that he’s not that sweet little baby anymore. The little guy who was so cute as a baby that ladies would come up to me in the grocery store and tell me how beautiful he was. That little bugger who found his thumb pretty much as soon as he was born. My little sweetheart who memorized Llama Llama Red Pajama at the age of two. . He is the sweetest boy, and I’m so incredibly blessed the God chose me to be his mom. Happy Birthday, Max! You are loved beyond belief!! ❤️ . Oh, and PS - exactly 6 months ‘til Christmas!! 😱 . #lularoe @lularoe #lularoedebbie #lularoeshirley #lularoeelegantcollection #happybirthday #hesnine #myboy #growingup #llamallama #mybaby #slowdown #ootd #momboss #sidekick @stylewithpaigea @stylewithkels

Writing = healing 💞 I used to write a lot but the pc, email and smartphones make it hard to grab that paper and pencil. 📜📨📬 Still, my quest for cute paper was successful and I am back at it again!

👁 . . Yoga, TRE, acupuncture, surfing, education, singing and drumming are important BRANCHES of my healing 🌳 . . It's ROOTS are the 'HEALING FOUNDATIONS' of my previous post 👁 . . Letting go of NEEDING certain things has been the TRUNK that connected roots to branches 🌳 . . Rather than ADDING things such as routines, rituals, super foods, massages, classes, retreats, therapy sessions, supplements on and on and on... . . Letting go of NEEDS means i experience no feelings of LACK in these areas ( see lack cycle in photos ) . . Examples of what I've LET GO: - car + bike - house (i rent a small room) - working full time - a fixed working schedule - group socialising - diet control (👋🏽 farmers market) - workout/yoga clothes - underwear (seriously) - toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, sunscreen (sorry mum) - essential oils (not oregano + tea tree) - shoes (where possible) . . Where I've LET GO of a NEED I experience NO LACK . . When i'm NOT experiencing LACK emotions i have much more mental space to HEAL = REST, DIGEST, REPAIR . . Having more free time and less financial needs means i can appropriate my time & money to my branches 🌳 . . . #openjournal #vocation #values #trust #honesty #qi #life #restanddigest #stop #feel #nolack #parasympathetic #nervoussystem #facilitator #guide #healing #selfhealing #emotionalintelligence #slowdown #unplug #earthing #listening #give #heal #ancientwisdom #innatewisdom #acupuncture #yoga #movement #therapist

Trying to look at the bright side....I’ve been so busy lately...non stop working and rushing around...no time for chilaxing....seems like the Universe offered me a “break”...I think there were more subtle whispers before this!!!! I “hear” you now!!!! Surgery tomorrow but I’ll be back soon...I miss my work & clients already!!! #gratitude #slowdown #appreciatelife
