  • use your life for good 🌻 @goodhotel.co
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
traveling should be about new experiences. it should be about food. and culture. sights and sounds. languages. it should challenge you and incite you. traveling should make you more creative, compassionate and self-aware.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
traveling should change your life. period. but it should also change the lives of others.

as you gain these new qualities, remember traveling should not just be about taking. but giving. #sleepgooddogood

  • Y’all. Today I start rehearsals for Bob Gaudio in the New York company of JERSEY BOYS. There’s been magic in the air for the past few months, and I’m feeling it extra strong today. Hope you are too. Have a kick ass week!

  • and then one day,
he woke up
and put his cape on all on his own,
just like he had thousands of times before.
and just like that,
my superhero re-emerges
without relying on me to put that cape on for him.

Two months. This boy has been diarrhea-free for TWO WHOLE MONTHS. He’s a different dog and this transformation has been incredible to witness.

  • a lot of people probably read this + automatically think it entails to the last six months of the year. but i look at it as just six months, any six months. i don’t want to look at my life as things accomplished in a calendar year or a year of age. am i where id like to be at at 32? absolutely not. but im happy. i may not be there just yet but im proud of myself for making it to this point. so take these words + let them soak in, deep. the next six months can be whatever you allow them to be. manifest the good for yourself + make it happen. we have to stop beating ourselves up for the things we might not have accomplished yet + celebrate all we have. #motivationmonday #bettereveryday

  • Second day back at school for my big girl and we are back into our rhythm (the house has also stayed relatively tidy 🙌🏽)... but boy did we miss our girl yesterday 💙
.
.
Early morning wake ups are back for me, I love getting up before sunrise and before the girls wake. It sets up such a better mood for the day when I can have some mama time first thing in the morning.  All before the girls opened their eyes this morning I have done 30 minutes of work on my business (the beautiful bonus of running an online business is that we can fit it in around what’s most important to us, not the other way around). I have taken my nutritional support and drank a litre of water 💧. I have sipped slowly on a big warm mug of Bone Broth with apple cidar vinegar 🍵, I have prepared the kids breakfast and clothes for the day ahead, I have listened to the kookaburras wake up and watched the sun rise whilst taken time to take gratitude for the beautiful life we live. Everyday we have a choice that sets the mood for each and everyday. .

Choose happiness and gratitude when you open your eyes every morning ✨

  • ✨Pause for a little positivity!⠀⠀
⠀⠀
On Monday's I invite you to join me in seeing the glass as half full. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Life is hard. It's filled with hard. It's vital to respect the hard, but it's often easy to focus and dwell on the hard. Somedays we even give the hard more than what it deserves. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
So I invite you wherever you are, in the middle of the happy, the complicated, the messy or the gorgeous to pause and type up something good in your life. Something you are grateful for. Something that is bringing a smile to your face right now. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
It can be as small as getting the wash to the dryer on the first attempt, or as big as getting a new job. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
It's okay if it takes a minute. It will be worth the pause. I promise there is something good to see.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Share with me below. I'll post mine too!

  • Can somebody explain this? Well I’ve been writing all my life as long as I can remember.
.
When I take a 🖊 an a 📓 I feel that I have the universe on my hands. Sometimes I just write the facts (#diary), some other times I do it to understand my feelings and thoughts (#clearhead), and I also put on those pages how I want things to happen in the future (#visualization).
.
Writing is talking to myself and allowing everything that’s stuck inside, to get out passively. As a kid I was very shy and didn’t talk to my friends or family, because I felt different and so that was my tool to feel understood.
.
The magic occurs when you realize the power you have over yourself. You can create, be yourself, feel anything you want and you can learn the importance of a private life.
.
I hope you try to do it when you feel overwhelmed or lost, and I assure you will (with time and practice) find the way out of what’s holding you back.

  • FRIENDS // You know when there are people that you just jam with right off the bat!? That's how I feel with @sunshineinmynest! And the funny thing is we met through this big online space and have become great friends over the past 6+ months.
.
She is someone I know I could invite over and not feel like I need to be pretentious. Marci Ann loves playing with her boys. And Elizabeth and I just have the best time chatting it up about all sorts of topics! .
Today I am thankful that this space has allowed me to build friendships with people I may have never met before. It allows me to feel inspired, motivated, and to be my extroverted self! .
Today our time out in nature somehow felt more special because it was spent with friends (and the 70 degree weather didn't hurt either ⛅)!
.
Drop the name of a fellow mama 👇 that you have become friends with through IG!

  • You improvise when the rain comes. I could have stayed in today. I could have said I will walk tomorrow. Then the next day would come and another excuse would show up. They just keep coming. It doesn't get easier. I feel better during and after my walk, but I try to talk myself out of it EVERY SINGLE DAY. The first part is the worst. My house is in a valley so my walk has to start uphill. At the top of the hill I always want to turn around and go back down, but I keep going. About half way through is where it feels okay. The best part is when I can say I have been walking a mile outside everyday for two months. I get to be outside in nature and so does my son. We listen to the birds and bugs. We feel the weather, not just the artifical one we create inside. It is incredible. Yet every day I have to make myself put on my shoes and go. It is hard and satisfying. I never want to go, but I love that I keep showing up for myself. I am worth it. -💗- Jess
