Whatever your dream is, it is not too late to achieve it. You aren’t a failure because you haven’t found fame and fortune by the age of 21. Hell, it’s okay if you don’t even know what your dream is yet. Even if you’re flipping burgers, waiting tables or answering phones today, you never know where you’ll end up tomorrow.
Never tell yourself you’re too old to make it.
Never tell yourself you missed your chance.
Never tell yourself that you aren’t good enough.
You can do it. Whatever it is.
What makes you throw your head back in ecstasy? Is it the beauty of the entire spectrum of emotion? Are you willing to go into the depths, to the bottom of the ocean of your Soul, in order to experience the highest of your highs? For those of you who are lost, who are hurting, I feel you. Take deep breaths and ask yourself- in this moment, what would create ease for me? Are you doing the things that bring you joy? If you knew you were going to die soon, what would you do? Who would you run to? What words would you speak, and how would you move your body? how would you carry yourself and what would you ask for? Let’s just do it now. Don’t wait. Find your home- in yourself, in others, in a piece of land, and go there. Feel the fear associated with all the loss and pain you’ve experienced in your life and let that catapult you like an explosion of opportunity to change the story. Safety is an illusion and most likely, what you think keeps you safe actually limits you. Me,too. I know for sure it will hurt a lot more to hold back and limit your life than to go for it and release those limiting expectations. Just decide it will work out and trust. Sometimes we don’t understand why things happen or see the impact of our choices until later. Let’s go.

This flag is not a symbol of defeat, of desperation, or of loss. Do not mistake this flag for surrender, for I am not giving up. This flag is a symbol of hope, of love, respect, courage, family, compassion, humility, and grace. This flag represents a community of women who fight hard each and every day to be the best versions of themselves. This flag represents women who empower each other, support each other, and challenge each other to grow. This flag is not a symbol of surrender, it is a battle cry.

In the Bible 1 Corinthians 7:34 it says that a wife is concerned with the things of this world and how we may please our husbands. Makes sense right? Why we’re always moving instead of being seated.
Today, I want you to pause and assess your surroundings, your peace, your connection with your husband, your children, and your connection with God. Is is well watered? Or are those relationships a bit parched?
If so, extend grace to yourself and know that the movement of Martha is necessary but so is the stillness of Mary. Carve out some time today and over the next few days to intentionally be refueled by The Lord. Let Him sing over you and restore you.
The role of a wife is non stop honey, but in order to be a balanced wife who’s heart desires to please the Lord and her husband you’re gonna have to stop - even if only for a moment. You won’t regret it.
COMMENT BELOW and let me know have you been more Martha or Mary lately. My answer is in the comments ♥️
Intencionalidade no cuidado! Intencionalidade no amor! Intencionalidade no perdão! Intencionalidade em querer entender os processos da vida!
Somos intencionais em acordar mais cedo para não termos um inicio de manhã corridos!
Intencionalidade é sobre querer tornar os dias melhores! Sobre amar com a intenção de fazer o outro se sentir importante!
These last few months, I've been thinking often of my friend and extraordinary human @3footgiant .
A man who loved himself and others relentlessly, who embraced life fully and left a massive legacy of understanding the World through a lens of gratitude, self love and possibility behind.
"This is not happening to me, it is happening for me." was something that he said often and is something I have used as a mantra through unexpected times. Asking myself in those moments, how do I make this potentially challenging moment an opportunity for growth, action and creativity.
If you have not experienced the positivity, inspiration and catalyst for action of Sean Stephenson, follow his legacy page here on insta, subscribe to the podcast he created with his incredible partner in all ways, @mindiekniss and first thing, find a video of him on youtube stat. It will awaken your heart and your laughter and your spirit and leave you feeling irrevocably changed.

One year ago today I had the honor of partnering with Tacori on the #LoveTacori campaign and it’s been a magical journey ever since! Not only do I love this brand through and through, they have become one of my biggest supporters and believers in what I do and what I stand for. I am truly blessed!
Here is the story from my post last year announcing this dream-come-true ✨.
About 8 (now 9!!!) years ago, I entered into the event industry and was introduced to @tacoriofficial and almost instantly, I fell in love.
As a 16-year-old who spent her weekends helping with weddings and spent her free time watching @sayyes_tlc with my dad, it was fair to say I couldn’t wait for the day when it would be my turn to be the bride and (maybe) flaunt a @tacoriofficial ring. However, he always kept me grounded and instead encouraged me to create a legacy I would be proud of- to touch the lives of others and make a positive impact, live my passions and be authentically “me”. I remember coming home from work on the day that I discovered @tacoriofficial and scrolling through their website- reading every word, looking at every picture… the words “passion” and “legacy” stood out to me the most and in a matter of minutes, something spoke to me. In that moment, I just knew this company would be a part of my future.
Fast-forward to today…… Today, 8 (now 9!!!) years later, not only am I celebrating (almost) 2 (now 3!!!) years in business, but I am celebrating that I have been welcomed as an official member of the #LoveTacori team; who’s company story and values played a role in MY story, the one where, 8 (now 9!!!) years ago, my legacy was being created without me realizing it.
Today, 8 (now 9!!!) years later, I scrolled through the @tacoriofficial website- reading every word, looking at every picture… and today, their website reads “We Touch Lives and Create Legacies”. Coincidence? I think not.
That moment, 8 (now 9!!!) years ago, when I knew @tacoriofficial would be a part of my future?
It is with immense gratitude that I share -- that moment is now.
I love you @tacoriofficial! Thank you for being part of my story 💙
Beginning new chapters ... writing the narrative on your heart ... these are hard things. Yesterday was a hard day as I ended one chapter so another could begin. I think of all the laughs, tears and moments had inside those ratty walls of Outlaw. I hesitated a few times painting over my sign. I felt like I was losing a part of myself. Then ... standing on the hood of my truck, I saw this place for the new story that will be told within its walls. My dream to have a safe haven for victims of crime is one step closer to being a reality. I knew that I had to adjust my sails of one dream to make another happen. When something is written on our heart - impressed on our souls - it is our duty to follow the calling of our highest self. My little company lives in a different capacity so my energy can flow to where it is needed right now ... we get this life to be the change we wish to see - to leave a legacy of love. I want to use my time wisely. Love well my friends. Love well. -

I’M JUST BEING HONEST...but the past few days it just hasn’t felt appropriate for me to be promoting my services or sponsored posts (and to no offense to anyone who has - I’m appreciative of the normal/usual content too!). And I’m not going to act like I’m a huge sports fan either. I mean love attending live games when possible. And by marrying Zell we are a de facto Laker house. We’re one of those people who only keep cable or DirectTV for the Laker channel. And while I’m not actively watching, often Kobe’s greatness is still being shown in the background at our house.
So it’s never been easy for me to not respect Kobe. Matter of fact, I often reference him in terms of chasing my own dreams. I’d always mention how he was so laser-focused, lived and breathed basketball and how you must adopt that level of commitment when going after anything you want in life. But it wasn’t until his untimely death did I recognize how much I had subconsciously absorbed his determination and perseverance, and what an impact his #mambamentality made in my life.
Here was this man, who gave away most of his life to a game he loved. A remarkable man with multiple awards, record setting achievements and fans around the world. A father, husband and son. And just like that, doing a routine activity, he was gone.
We sometimes believe these superstars are unreal and larger than life but death is a reminder that we are all the same. That we must make each day count, that THIS moment is a blessing, to say what you mean, live and love how you want because tomorrow just ain’t promised for any of us.
I’m heartbroken over the death of Kobe, Gianna and the other families affected in this tragedy. But I’m also leveraging this as a reminder to love harder, live harder, and work harder for what I want in this life of mine. My dad calls it “your dash” because everyone has a beginning and end. Kobe’s dash was pretty profound. But what will you make of yours?
