My son’s first college campus visit where “the Techer life experience, as a whole exceeds the sum of its basic elements. And the outcome is pure genius.” ... 30min to downtown LA, 10min from the Rose Bowl, and 4 Harry Potter-esque dorms to choose from with full time access to the JPL... our student tour guide hangs out with the team working on the next Mars Rover that hasn’t even been named yet. Now keep in mind that my son is a wee freshman in Highschool and has been talking about this STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) school for two years.
I don’t know if I’m uber proud and need to consider becoming a Bruins fan, or intimidated by my son at this point, LOL. I mean, we were both geeking out for 24hrs over a 3-story liquid nitrogen tank that was outside one of the lab buildings where every student has access to it for their experiments, projects, or whatever. ...yes, they do have tennis courts on campus (shwew). #LifeIsAwesome#noLimits#FatherAndSon#Gratitude@usta@pasadena_chamberofcommerce@tennischannel@they_call_me_selly@laserfibrestrings
Having a dream and guts to bring it into reality is all it takes to become someone, you always wanted to be. I used to decide a lot of things on my own.
Always I have became what this universe wanted me to be. Nature guided me to the path of life. Now, I only have dreams like they are reality and accept everything whole heartedly. This way life became much more enjoyable and fun.
Today, I surrender to this universe.
28 January, 2020
Congo Brazzaville visa done. Gabon tomorrow. Thursday I am outta here.
I can't stop staring at my Nigeria visa. It is a unicorn - as rare. I know of only 4 guys (duo, 2x solo) that have cycled Nigeria in the last year and a half. You just can't get a visa en route, and it is only valid 3 months from issue, if you get it at home.
I have 4x4 badasses @ruggedasf to mooch info off, too. Not gonna be easy. First of all borders. The most convenient one is closed to tourists. Detour. Fine. And so it goes. Exciting, and it will be a pure adrenaline adventure. No holds barred, by all accounts. Almost all accounts being "Don't cycle Nigeria!". It seems to be the most feared country, ever, by the look of things. Only one way to find out!
So, so excited.
Ride or die. That makes a lot more sense now. XD
Thinking of the all the things I still need to do while cycling home... Catches glimpse of toes. Ahhh, yes. Less than 500m later the universe detours (know the general layout of this city by now so don't use GPS anymore) me along a road that just happens to be a one way so I hop on the pavement into a teeny park and there is a girl getting her toes done by a sidewalk aesthetician. I cycle on. Cause I am not yet completely attuned. 200m later a light bulb goes off. There is someone that does pedis on women (I had only seen mani's being done on men so far), and you are lazy, so...
I ask. I am accepted for the next appointment. I pay the local fee of $1. Change is hard to find so the note at $2 value is his. Not a tip. It is for being my model. If someone is doing work, and you are benefitting off it, you should pay IMO. A homage to every musician, photographer, meme creator, artist and creative whose 'fans' blindly download/repost art in all its forms - uncredited and unpaid.
🌟 MESSAGES REVEALED 🌟

This card is just screaming BALANCE to me... a reminder to find a happy middle ground between self care, and concern for those closest to us. To spend time with the people we love, not with a feeling of overwhelm or obligation, because we choose to. To have a single-minded focus on accomplishing the task at hand, but to also stay in a space of light-hearted enjoyment of that task. To remember that life can be fun, and nourishing to the soul... and to ask ourselves: why are we even doing the things we do then? 💕
Middle: Ace of Fire
If you've been sitting on an idea for a new project or venture, then NOW is the time to act on it... before it bites you in the bum! 😉 What is ONE THING that you can do to start turning it into a reality? Do a google search, make that phone call, schedule that appointment, register that domain name... whatever! It doesn't have to be huge & overwhelming - baby steps for the win - but it does need to start happening! So get your A into G & do the thing! 😃
Right: Elder of Fire
"Mastery comes from repeatedly doing the things that you love." This is a sense of total & utter confidence that can only come from experience... immersing yourself fully in something that you are completely passionate about... living & learning along the way. And maybe it's become so second nature to you now that you don't regard it as anything special... but it IS - not everyone can do what you do - and so this week you're being reminded that you DO have something special to offer, and that you can use your unique gifts to help out those around you.🤗

I feel like this zen dude may be inviting you to consider "What if this is as good as it gets?" Appreciating everything that Life has to offer you, no matter what the outside circumstances appear to be - good or bad - knowing it's all here to help you in some way. If you can change something that you dislike then you will... but if you can't, then how can you make the absolute best of it that you can, for the time being? He trusts that life is always working FOR him, in every way possible way... can you feel this too? 💗
Trust the voice that whispers within, the one that helps you align to your highest purpose. The one that lets you know when to say yes and also when to say no. That inner voice that pushes you ever so gently to connect, create and get out of your own way.
This past weekend I did just that. I booked a weekend getaway just for me. I took some time for self care. Time for some real soul connection with likeminded, beautiful woman. I booked a cute Airbnb, had a bath, meditated and slept like a baby, then spent a whole day creating just because....and you know what, I did all without a bit of guilt. I accepted that I was in alignment and everything just seemed to flow as it was meant to with every decision I made. #metime#inallthingsgivethanks#alignment#gratitudeattitude ♡
... now I realize step by step what is life about... giving a hug to the world is one of these magical things we all can do easily... ❤️🌍

Sometimes it’s the simplest things that counts the most in life. They paved the way to a peaceful place when everything seems to be falling a part
I’m learning that life itself is a simple thing and it’s up to YOU to choose how you are doing to live it that way #hellotuesday
Ein HOCH auf die Gesundheit ☘️
Da ich absolut nicht herzeigbar (ist das ein Wort?) oder vorzeigbar (hört sich besser an) bin, gibts wieder mal ein älteres Foto 💕
Vom Sommer, wo es draußen warm war und alles so viel besser 😫
Aber bald haben wir es geschafft, der Jänner ist schon so gut wie vorbei und die wärmeren Tage sind schon in Sicht ...
Auf alle Fälle hasse ich es, dass es mich jetzt doch noch erwischt hat 🤒
Das Wochenende war so motivierend dass man sofort alles umsetzten möchte und dann liegt man im Bett 🙈
Aber das tolle an unserem Business ist ja, dass ich total viel auch von zuHause und in meinem Fall im Bett erledigen kann 🙏
Also ist es wiederum doch nicht so schlimm 😜
Wie gehts euch so, alle noch fit?
Wünsch euch einen tollen Tag 🥰💕
5 jars of hydration 🤗 living water & juice to keep me fueled and hydrated while I enjoy the day at the spa 🧖🏽♂️ Love going to the sauna, sweat out toxins and get my lymph moving 😊 unlimited showers 🚿 and lots of rest 😌
Treating myself well 😀🙏🏼

💖💖 All you need is love 💖💖 Do you need something else to snuggle?
Kesuksesan yang kamu miliki sekarang itu hasil dari perilaku kamu selama ini. Berkarya tanpa menjatuhkan seseorang, dipandang baik tanpa harus menfitnah orang lain, dan jauh lebih percaya kepada dirimu sendiri bahwa kita mampu melakukannya😉☺️ .
Das beste was einem passieren kann?!
Jemand zu finden, der dich in keinster Weise verändern will, der zu dir steht, wenn du mal wieder vollkommen neben dir stehst und mit dem das Leben einfach - einfach ist 🖤
