Reflecting on: Always having so much to learn and unlearn, and how while I know a lot, I also don't really know much at all, and how freeing and opening it is to let that be okay.
What are you reflecting on today? 🌷

A gente nunca sabe quando a vida está prestes a mudar para sempre. Você acorda num dia comum sem saber que logo ali na frente algo muito grande está para acontecer, ou toma uma decisão, que parece ser só mais uma entre tantas, e essa atitude altera o curso de sua história de forma definitiva.
A gente nunca sabe se o dia que amanheceu sorrindo irá terminar chovendo em lágrimas, ou se a semana que começou nublada irá desembocar numa sexta ensolarada.
A vida não nos oferece garantias, certezas ou segurança de forma alguma, e é justamente essa possibilidade de surpresas que a torna tão especial.
A felicidade não avisa que vai chegar nem anuncia que aquele momento presente é o momento que jamais iremos esquecer. Poucas vezes temos a consciência de estarmos vivendo um momento carregado de eternidade. Essa noção virá só lá na frente, quando o momento for revisitado em noites carregadas de nostalgia e poesia.
A gente nunca sabe quando a vida está prestes a mudar para sempre. Nem sempre conseguimos nos despedir de quem amamos, das ruas onde brincamos, dos sabores que experimentamos. Nem sempre temos a consciência de que aquela será a última vez, e podemos não dar a devida reverência ao que merece ser reverenciado.
É preciso deixar os medos morrerem baixinho, a culpa se extinguir devagarinho e a mágoa se dissipar de mansinho. Só assim estaremos prontos para que a felicidade nos alcance e nos surpreenda. Só assim estaremos prontos para aceitar que a vida mude para sempre e nos leve a construir uma nova história, repleta de sopros de alegria, vapores de eternidade e impermanência do tempo…

The Honey Moon Phase, also known as Infatuation, is one of the first tests of any romantic relationship.
When we meet someone, we have an idea in our mind of who they are, rather than the reality.
If attraction is high we often assume they are the perfect fit, daydreams of the future and positive outcomes fill our mind.
We might find ourselves fantasizing about the best case scenario long before we even know whether or not we are truly compatible.
As a result, we tend to hyper speed our relationship based on a faulty foundation.
Big moves, decisions and choices are made - ones that are better left for an established partnership.
This is why, when quick burn relationships end, you’ll often hear people say, ‘you’re not who I thought you were.’ That’s because we fell for the fantasy, not the actual person.
When we are in the honeymoon phase, it’s in the relationship’s best interest to move slowly.
The pace you set can often determine the way in which the relationship will progress.
Imagine getting to know someone slowly, finding out their morals, beliefs, dreams, desires and habits long before you’ve crossed into a committed partnership.
That way, when you choose one another you’re actually choosing who that person is, rather than the idea of who they are.
This sets the tone for building a solid connection, based in a shared understanding and mutual agreement on what the relationship will become.
Plus, you get to enjoy the experience of ‘falling in love’ for even longer, with less opportunity for being blindsided by wearing the rose coloured glasses of infatuation.
If you want to learn more about the Five Relationship Stages have a look at our HEAL YOUR RELATIONSHIPS 8-week Course. We begin on JULY 22nd, find the link in my bio to register.
🗣 I’ll never forget watching @tylerperry aka Madea’s analogy on understanding relationships.
It went something like this...
Most people are like leaves.
When the wind blows they go to one side of the tree and then the wind blows the other way and they are on the other side. They are totally unstable. All they do is take from the tree and only give shade.
When the seasons change they wither and fall off the tree. But don’t be angry with them; this is who they are. God put them in your life just for a season.
Some people are like branches on the tree but watch out for them.
They make you think they are your friends but the minute you step out, they break and leave you. Oh, but God bless those folks who are the roots.
Find two or three people who are your roots. They are there to help you live and give stability to your life. A tree may have one thousand branches but just a few roots. Hold on to these people.
The lesson is to be able to let people and relationships go.
And learn how to be alone and first love yourself.
Learn to be peaceful. With your later years, you should learn to be at peace with yourself and others. Get rid of the dysfunction and let people go who continue to create drama and dysfunction in your life.
History together or not, the love for yourself comes first. Stand up for YOURSELF, know your worth and let me see those 💛’s below!!

This Eclipse cycle is determining the path of how the things are going to end up. In the Most Intense alignment we have seen in our life.
We must pay close attention to this time. To ourselves. January 2020 is approaching. It’s time to get very close to our own selves.
This is about allowing everything we know to crumble. This is about surrendering to all that we think we are and all that we have been. This is about letting go of not just our past but also our future.
This is about shedding and releasing everything we have ever believed, desired, dreamed, or wanted. This is about total surrender.
Everything is up for questioning. Everything is up for review. Everything we ever thought or believed in is going to be challenged. Some things will stick, some things will remain the same, but others will have to be shed, released, transformed, and done away with.
Who we thought we were is changing, and the world is changing too.
This is a time where we can lift ourselves up, not to be free of darkness, but enter into a Lighter and more authentic state of Being. ✨
Everyone starts somewhere. My constant reminder. I was feeling insecure about my current makeup abilities & was doing what I know I shouldn’t: comparing myself. There are so many talented artists out there, how could I not? But my journey isnt theirs, just as their journey isnt mine. I’ve said this before, music festivals have given me a confidence in myself that I’ve never felt before. Back in ‘13, I was a hostess struggling to make ends meet and barely passing my classes at com. college. My self-esteem was at rock bottom but even then I tried to do a lil something with makeup. Looking at the pic on the left I see the faint blue eyeshadow that I took forever to decide on. And don’t get me started on that jewel! Ugh I remember it taking at least 15 mins to get it to stay as others waited for me to finish. I was SO proud of myself! I had never really put on makeup before but here I was trying it. This is one of maybe 3 selfies I took and there were no full body pictures because I wouldnt have allowed it at the time. Remember: really bad self esteem and even worse self talk.
Now fast forward 6 years after countless music festivals w/ friends from all over and seeing ppl express themselves in a truly magnificent fashion. At music festivals, there is no fear of humiliation from others & pointing fingers from judgement but the complete opposite: acceptance & unwavering support. I’ve watched as others have been able to express themselves & finally this year I’ve allowed myself to believe in me. I look at the pic to the right & I see someone who didn’t give up. I didn’t let my mistakes define me but instead made me stronger. I persevered in my own education, graduating with my Masters. Now I’m pursuing an even bigger dream, one that relies on my belief in my own abilities. I loved every moment of putting this look together, from blending the different hues of purple to deciding which glitter matched best & placing the crown on my freshly curled hair. I can now look at myself & see someone who finally stepped out of the shadows, someone who has courage, who is beautiful, who is loved, & who can do whatever she wants to do.
Never stop believing in yourself loves 💕
