Happy Sunday morning. “No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.” -Socrates
This quote I am in total agreement with. I believe it applies to mind, body, and soul. After being introduced to Anatomy and Physiology.. I'm amazed at how incredibly we are designed. The mind and body are definitely instruments that should constantly be exercised. The better I feel the better I do. Thank you god for our blessings and gifts.

Honestly I didn’t know if I ever wanted children. Well, I knew I didn’t want multiple , but when her father asked I said well I guess I can get off birth control & “see what happens”... 🤣well, THIS gorgeous soul is what IMMEDIATELY happened on the very first “try”.... 😲 I was like why are my boobs sore?? 🧐 “DUH”!!? 😆🤭. I can’t image life without 👶 baby Bean. She’s the best thing that’s ever (or will ever) happen to me. She is so kind, others focused, sweet & caring! God really over blessed me with this one! 🤗 #minime#blessings
Quote of the day
Reach for the moon, if you fail you may set feet on the stars.... Never Give Up, Always Aim High, You Can do it, if you set your standards low you won't ever reach your true potential.
We have to wake up very early yesterday to attend the 6am Holy Mass for the #Feast of #StoNiño (imagine waking up the little ones at 4am 😅), but it's a very small sacrifice after all the #blessings that we have received every day.
I just want to say Thank You Martin Luther King Jr. You had a dream and you made that dream happen. 🙏🏿🙏🏿. HAPPY MLK DAY. So I thought I’d do a Tribute called “A Change Is Gonna Come” by Sam Cooke. @officialsamcooke •
Today's focus is surrender versus escapism. The Divine works through us, not for us; we must serve as responsible co-creators of our life. Too often surrender is interpreted as a come-what-may approach, but there's more nuance to healthy surrender. What must be released are the rigid plans of the ego in favour of trusting that taking the next step is enough. Once that step is initiated, we will be given the next, but we won't be shown the entire map before we agree to leave the house, nor can we escape the responsibility of taking action in the absence of complete knowledge. This is the dance of surrender. Today, explore your plans and goals. Do you have any? Are they set in stone? Pare it down to just the next step, asking for guidance and allowing your intuition to inform your actions. If you're guided to a follow-up step that deviates from the ego's plans, can you surrender, taking action with openness and curiosity?

My day started at 5 am, with our puppy Stella. I knew at one we would be burying my uncle, so I thought I would go ahead and work on tonight's dinner. It's extremely cold here in Kentucky, so chicken and rice soup (with accompanying 🍞) seemed to be a great idea.
As I boiled, chopped, shredded and cooked, i felt strangely at peace. Knowing i would be providing my family with good, simple nourishment brought some light into a very dark day.
There’s so much beauty in looking at things from another perspective.
And truth and wisdom and learning.
I realize that not everyone can or is willing to do this and it’s a blessing to be able to look at things from different angles - call it empathy, compassion, sensitivity, creativity. I think that learning, hearing and seeking out different perspectives makes us more attuned to, more open to noticing them. And the more we notice them, the more there’ll be to notice.
It’s important to seek out and be present in spaces where we will hear many perspectives. I personally enjoy learning from diverse stories because I feel like it helps me become more compassionate to paths I know nothing about. Wisdom and openness come from seeking out other ways of seeing. It feels like truth or a more complete version of truth.
In this period of our history it often feels like we as a society look for absolutes; reality is there are always shades of grey and many ways of looking at anything - so many nuances. Perhaps it’s the rise of technological dependence where so much discourse is online that we are not able to see facial expressions and body language, that many become so entrenched in their own perspectives? I’m often very surprised at comments on posts and articles where it’s clear the commenter didn’t bother to read/understand/has no clue/doesn’t care - just wants to get their point made.
Have we gotten so busy that we can’t stop to re-evaluate? I imagine that another perspective would be cause for pause and reflection, a reminder that life is all about learning from each other? Leaning into another way of thinking? I think we can get to a place where we can hold space for others’ perspectives while also valuing our own. We may not anyways know them, but everyone has a story; storytelling and being enraptured by stories is a dying art. Let’s breathe some life into it by being open to other perspectives.
Do you seek out diverse ways of thinking? How do you make space for this in your life? In what ways can you foster that trait and where can you go to learn from others that have a different way of thinking than you do?

Sometimes life can feel like a never ending battle with your own mind, a battle with yourself. The truth is that this battle cannot be won. There is no winner. The battle is an illusion. You just have to surrender and understand that through self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-love you can get better. Strengthen your core values, beliefs, and ability to choose positive thoughts. Other times just flow and do your best not to react or act on negative ones. Work on your self-awareness, stay in the present moment & do your best not to judge yourself. Self-care is the journey.
