Today I woke up 1.5kg above my comfortable weight range and didn’t even flinch. Why? Well, after all these years I have finally detached the emotional connection to a number on the scales.
The more educated you become around nutrition, the more you realise that you are in complete control. Yes I have been eating over my calories (every single day 😅) yes it has been a stressful week BUT I am in complete control of what I do about it now.
For me, I will become more diligent at tracking my cals, hitting those numbers, adding more nutrients back into my diet and also taking some time out to rest and recover, nothing crazy.
If you don’t know where to start and you find you get into a mental rut whenever you step onto the scales, I would highly suggest hiring a coach to education you and hold you accountable in achieving your goals.
Reposted from @gaurgopaldas (@get_regrann) - It’s so beautiful to see the culture of love, service and respect to elders that these children have from such a young age. The future of the world will undoubtedly be bright if children grow up with these values. And values are not taught; they are caught. Children do what they see. It is therefore so important that parents/elders live by these values themselves.

तुम्हारे शहर का मौसम बड़ा सुहाना लगे
मैं एक शाम चुरा लूँ अगर बुरा न लगे ,
तुम्हारे बस में अगर हो तो भूल जाओ मुझे
तुम्हें भुलाने में शायद मुझे ज़माना लगे ,
जो डूबना है तो इतने सुकून से डूबो
के आस पास की लहरों को भी पता न लगे, वो फूल जो मेरे दामन से हो गये मंसूब
ख़ुदा करे उन्हें बाज़ार की हवा न लगे, न जाने क्या है किसी की उदास आँखों में वो मुँह छुपा के भी जाये तो बेवफ़ा न लगे ,
तू इस तरह से मिरे साथ बेवफ़ाई कर
कि तेरे बाद मुझे कोई बेवफ़ा न लगे ,
तुम आँख मूँद के पी जाओ ज़िन्दगी "क़ैसर"
के एक घूँट में शायद ये बदमज़ा न लगे |

“Your are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most amount of time with”
This is one of my favourite quotes and SO true. Think about the people you surround yourself with, do they have the qualities that you aspire to have? I am so lucky to have the best support crew and group of people around me. I choose to be surrounded by positive, ambitions and strong people who are constantly wanting to become a better version of them.

I'm not sure if I've said this in my community, but most of my clients know I do this.
For the last 5 years or so, I have had a separate checking account called my Tithing Fund.
If you've ever read Edwene Gaines' "Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity" she talks about this. She also defines "tithing" as something that fills you up spiritually.
10% of my sales (right off the top) go into my "Tithing Fund". The rule is at the end of the month, it has to have a balance of $0.
I've donated to all kinds of causes and charities including Charity Water (one of my favorites), St. Jude, Lupus Foundation of America, American Diabetes Association, ASPCA, and Occidental College - my alma mater.
This year, I've decided to focus on the charities that I've selected for my giveaways: Paws and Stripes and Toys for Tots.
Yes, I make giving a part of my giveaway events. For every opt-in received, $.50 goes to a specific charity.
For the Rock Your Launch Giveaway, it was Paws and Stripes. For the Kickoff The Year Giveaway in December, it is Toys for Tots.
If giving is a part of who you are, let your business be a part of it too.
Among all the fascinating mosques that we saw in Bosnia, the war mosque really touched my heart. It’s made of all wood and nestled on the lush and Green Igman Mountain, which was the only way to leave Sarajevo during the siege until the tunnel was built.⠀
Quite amazingly, its mezzanine women’s prayer area was used as an operating room, we were told by its incredibly humane giant Imam who led the mosque throughout the war.⠀
Some more amazing facts about it is that it was built on the initiative of the soldiers and in harsh winter conditions, in the pauses between regular defense missions.⠀
The construction began in November 1993 and it was opened in February 1994. It was abandoned at some point and later reconstructed in 2000 by a group of Muslims interested in its destiny. It is now seen and deservedly so, as a cultural monument.⠀
مسجد الحرب في سراييفو أثر في كتير من ضمن مجموعة المساجد القديمة في البوسنة. هو مصنوع كاملا من الخشب وموجود بنص الغابة اللي على جبل إيجمان، وهدا الجبل كلن الطريقة الوحيدة للطلوع من سراييفو خلال حصار سراييفو لحد ما انبنى نفق الأمل.⠀
ومن الغرائب في قصص هدا المسجد إنو منطقة صلاة النساء في الميزانين استعملت كغرفة عمليات خلال الحرب. خبرنا هاي المعلومة الإمام الإنساني اللي قاد خلال الحرب.⠀
بعض الحقائق الجميلة عن هدا المسجد هو إنو انبنى بناءا لقرار وجهود بعض ضباط الجيش بين المهمات العسكرية وفي برد الشتاء القارس. ⠀
بناء المسجد بدأ في نوفمبر ١٩٩٣ وخلص في فبراير ١٩٩٤. وانترك في وقت ما، واتولت ترميمه مجموعة مهتمة من المسلمين في سنة ٢٠٠٠ وهو هلأ يعتبر معلم ثقافي للبوسنة.⠀

Who’s getting prepped for hot chocolate weather? I’m already playing some Christmas music. Too early? 😆🥗😍
Most Americans believe in the concept of a #soulmate —one person they are destined to be with who is capable of meeting all of their needs. The soulmate concept is certainly a seductive one—but it’s also a very destructive one. It not only sets the bar for relationships ridiculously high, but it creates unrealistic expectations that leave us bound for disappointment.
Research also shows that people who believe in the soulmate concept are less likely to work on relationship problems. They jump ship before they’ve ever really given the relationship a chance. Instead of thinking that you need to find “the one,” focus instead on developing the skills you need to establish and maintain a healthy relationship. You don’t need to find the “right person.” Instead, YOU need to be the right person.
