  • Make even more of the choices that feel incredible and you’ll see more of what you want 🧲 magnetically falling into place!
.
.
People often ask me the “best” Feng Shui thing to bring money 💵 or love ❤️ or something else they want into their home. While there are so many options, the right choice is the one that feels best. ⚡️
.
.
No matter what we want to “manifest”, feeling amazing is what lights up so many inspired ideas and unstoppable momentum!
.
.
Keep on making the little amazing choices— light the candle 🕯, wash 🧽 the dishes, do the meditation, say yes when you mean it and no when it’s no— and those little choices speed up the flow and power in every day! .
.
Link is in my profile to all the free 💸 money Feng Shui videos of the season, full of rituals to feel amazing and make amazing things manifest!!! 💥💰❤️✨

  • While we wait for certain blessings and “our turn”, it’s easy to become impatient, because we know what our heart wants. We should be grateful for the in-between because it gives us the opportunity to keep improving ourselves. Everything will fall into place. There is divine timing for everything and everyone. So continue to work on yourself, keep the faith and stay ready. Because when it’s your turn, it will all make sense and you will be so proud of the person you have become.✨ #chooselove #followyourheart

  • The people that hurt the most have the greatest ability to heal. ~

Suffering is toxic for our lives. 
Staying in your pain doesn't improve your situation or get you any further ahead. ~

It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy and ultimately, it kills your happiness. ~

Whatever is going on that is making you feel this way, remember you are more than your problems and bigger than your mistakes. ~

Your pain and hurt is just showing you how you Dont want to feel and what is possible. ~

That’s it. ~

So whilst you’re sitting there looking at your blooper reel, use that time focus your energy on healing. ~

Re-focus.
What is important to you?
What is it that you really want?
what will allow you to move on? ~

Focus on that - only that. ~

This will help you channel all of your energy on forging forward to bring to life all healing and happiness you deserve.

  • Happy Earth Day Anniversary to my sister, Debie Rachel. ✨  I'm one year, one month old in this picture and it's telling aspect of my relationship with her. She was a sister and a caregiver, as well as a friend and mentor. In sixth grade I was fighting anxiety and depression. She used to leave long handwritten letters on funny stationary encouraging me to keep a positive perspective and that I wasn't an alone freak in the world, which I totally felt. In 6th grade I was already pushing a size 13 and she had some real talks with me about the realities of using food as a coping mechanism. She said, 'you're already in a size 13, I'd hate for you to get to a point where you couldn't find clothes to fit you or find the style you like.' Which was much more of a reality given the limited sizing available in the 70's. I remember that conversation vividly because I remember she was coming from pure love and concern, zero judgement zero shame. It was honest communication in that, we saw ourselves in each other. We shared similarities, including those fumbling, frustrating attempts to cope with a confusing world. 🌌 Goodnight Deb, you are so missed. May 25. .

  • These are the last 3 kiddos at home. They’re so different from each other but each one I absolutely adore. 💙❤️💕
•
•
•
You know what I think when I see them together? You know what I think every time I look at our blended family? 👇🏼
•
•
•
We are not great because we are normal. We are not great because we are perfect. We are not great because we understand. We are not great because we agree. We are great because we love regardless. ❤️
•
•
•
We didn’t ask for a blended family but we love regardless. We didn’t ask for huge age gaps but we love regardless. We didn’t ask for surprises or challenges or disappointments but we love regardless. Again and again, we choose love. ❤️
•
•
•
I don’t know what challenges you face. I don’t which relationships are damaged, possibly broken or simply lacking. I don’t know what you asked for or what you got but I challenge you to this: love regardless.  It’s hard? Do it anyway. Seems impossible? Ask for strength. And wisdom. And compassion. ❤️

Remember... love never fails. ❤️💯 Tag someone who needs to be reminded of this today.

  • A beautiful reminder for this magical Sunday 💕☀️🌈
.
I AM RESPONSIBLE for MY words, MY behaviour, MY actions, MY efforts, MY mistakes and the consequences of MY actions. ME and no one else is in control of my choices, even those made under duress or stress I ultimately played a part in every outcome.
.
We CAN NOT control anything outside of us no matter how hard we try & the sooner we accept this the more peace we will find with it all... the energy we waste trying to force, fit, manipulate or manage things not in our power causes much of our suffering.
.
ANYTHING WE CAN’T CONTROL IS TEACHING US HOW TO LET GO... to let go of expectations, to let go of outcomes, to let go of the consequences of others choices and, super importantly, to let go of attaching our joy to situations, people or results. The PEACE I’ve found in this place of detachment is amazing... surrendering to what is and trusting in what will be.
.
I openly & without hesitation take FULL responsibility for all my bullshit. I no longer waste my precious energy on the things that others are responsible for. I have learned to let it be... which isn’t about not caring, it’s more about knowing some things aren’t mine to navigate or fix & leaving it to those that need to go through it.
.
I spent too many years drained & burdened trying to save everyone from discomfort, so emotionally invested in others’ challenges. I put so much effort into trying to change people that didn’t want to change & help people heal that didn’t want to heal... I was attaching my joy to things outside of myself & stressing to solve problems that weren’t mine to own. Realising what I am responsible for has helped me to release what others are responsible for to them.
.

Healthy boundaries, self awareness, non-attachment & taking care of my energy are beautiful acts of self love & precious self care practices... taking care of my energy is MY RESPONSIBILITY.
.
Boundaries strong, heart full, 100% responsible for owning my shit... today is a great day 💕🌸 xxx

  • Tonight I sat on the beach with one of my closest friends and as we watched the sun set, we talked about the past ten years. 
We talked about the good times and the bad. Things we wish we could’ve done differently. Things we wouldn’t change at all. The experiences we went through, and how 𝚝𝚑𝚎𝚢 𝚜𝚑𝚊𝚙𝚎𝚍 𝚞𝚜 𝚒𝚗𝚝𝚘 𝚠𝚑𝚘 𝚠𝚎 𝚊𝚛𝚎 𝚝𝚘𝚍𝚊𝚢. 
As I looked back and reflected on my life thus far and stared off into the softly crashing waves, I realized just how important it was to 𝚙𝚞𝚛𝚜𝚞𝚎 𝚝𝚑𝚒𝚗𝚐𝚜 𝚝𝚑𝚊𝚝 𝚊𝚌𝚝𝚞𝚊𝚕𝚕𝚢 𝚖𝚊𝚝𝚝𝚎𝚛 𝚒𝚗 𝚕𝚒𝚏𝚎.
In these next ten years I don’t want to look back and see missed opportunities to love fiercely, to spend time with family every chance I get, to be a shoulder to cry on, or to forgive and let go of resentment and grudges. Life is just too short for us to hold those grudges and to hold back love. Ten years can go by in a blink of the eye, and when you’re sitting on the shore looking at the vast sea before you, what will really matter is if you 𝚕𝚘𝚟𝚎𝚍 𝚍𝚎𝚎𝚙𝚎𝚛, 𝚜𝚙𝚘𝚔𝚎 𝚜𝚠𝚎𝚎𝚝𝚎𝚛, 𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝚐𝚊𝚟𝚎 𝚏𝚘𝚛𝚐𝚒𝚟𝚎𝚗𝚎𝚜𝚜 𝚢𝚘𝚞'𝚍 𝚋𝚎𝚎𝚗 𝚍𝚎𝚗𝚢𝚒𝚗𝚐. 
How will you spend the next ten years of your life? 
I encourage you to pursue things that will matter. Don’t waste precious time on arguments, anger, and hate. Don’t love conditionally or mildly, but 𝚕𝚘𝚟𝚎 𝚏𝚒𝚎𝚛𝚌𝚎𝚕𝚢 𝚊𝚗𝚍 𝚍𝚘𝚗'𝚝 𝚎𝚟𝚎𝚛 𝚑𝚘𝚕𝚍 𝚋𝚊𝚌𝚔. ❤️

  • The people that hurt the most have the greatest ability to heal. ~

Suffering is toxic for our lives. 
Staying in your pain doesn't improve your situation or get you any further ahead. ~

It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy and ultimately, it kills your happiness. ~

Whatever is going on that is making you feel this way, remember you are more than your problems and bigger than your mistakes. ~

Your pain and hurt is just showing you how you Dont want to feel and what is possible. ~

That’s it. ~

So whilst you’re sitting there looking at your blooper reel, use that time focus your energy on healing. ~

Re-focus.
What is important to you?
What is it that you really want?
what will allow you to move on? ~

Focus on that - only that. ~

This will help you channel all of your energy on forging forward to bring to life all healing and happiness you deserve.

  • Earlier today, Aria was back at our condo with dada while I ran Mac’s gear around from winery to winery. This might sound mundane, but guys, I had a coffee in hand, Ed Sheeran blaring in the car, dressed for the pouring rain — I was feeling really, really good. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Later, the sunshine appeared. Aria played in the *almost* dry grass, Mac stood in the sun, I was as productive as I can be in Lake Chelan with good wifi connection. We were all pretty darn happy. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Afterwards, things didn’t go as planned. The sun came out, then it went away. It poured, then it didn’t. Mac and I both felt like we were on top of the world until we didn’t. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
How absolutely grateful I am that our joy and love doesn’t rest in feelings, plans, or the weather — because like the forecast, feelings and plans change like the PNW skies. 🌦⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Our joy is in each new day, a heavenly gift!⁣⁣
& our love is bound in the covenant of marriage that says “I CHOOSE to love you even when it’s hard and we make mistakes, we all get rained on, and I eat one of your tacos.” Okay, maybe I gave Mac one of my tacos because I was full, but the illustration still applies.⁣ 🌮
⁣⁣
Through it all, God is good, Mac is the most thoughtful husband and daddy, Aria Jane has the scrunchiest of faces, and Lake Chelan is one of our favorite places. ✨ || #pottsinchelan #blindlifeandwife #ariajanepotts⁣⁣

  • Yep, that's a really crooked horizon. It's tilted so far he must have meant to do it? But why??? Does a crooked horizon bother you as much as it does me? I have 3 levels on my tripod, live view is set with the leveling meter on, and I take great care to frame my shots. All this so that hopefully I dont have to crop too much and I can keep as many pixels as I can for printing. But at some point aren't the rules just so constricting?

Not to say that this is an award winning way to break a suggested rule of landscape photography, but isn't breaking rules the way we discover things. We may even learn that a particular rule, or set of rules, really dont fit us or have any place in our lives. In my experience a lot of societies rules were based on judgement and trying to make one better than another. 
Perhaps that is why I love artistic endeavors so much, because even though there are rules, you get to break them in the name of being creative. Honestly it is refreshing to take something that others may consider wrong and make it right. 
This idea helps me to understand that there are many different rights in this life. My way may not be the only way. There are many rules from the past that we need to let go of, opening our minds and hearts. Which is something I think we all need to remember, to make a conscious effort to understand others. Because perhaps, there are many, many, many ways to percieve and live this life.

  • Yep, that's a really crooked horizon. It's tilted so far he must have meant to do it? But why??? Does a crooked horizon bother you as much as it does me? I have 3 levels on my tripod, live view is set with the leveling meter on, and I take great care to frame my shots. All this so that hopefully I dont have to crop too much and I can keep as many pixels as I can for printing. But at some point aren't the rules just so constricting?

    Not to say that this is an award winning way to break a suggested rule of landscape photography, but isn't breaking rules the way we discover things. We may even learn that a particular rule, or set of rules, really dont fit us or have any place in our lives. In my experience a lot of societies rules were based on judgement and trying to make one better than another.
    Perhaps that is why I love artistic endeavors so much, because even though there are rules, you get to break them in the name of being creative. Honestly it is refreshing to take something that others may consider wrong and make it right.
    This idea helps me to understand that there are many different rights in this life. My way may not be the only way. There are many rules from the past that we need to let go of, opening our minds and hearts. Which is something I think we all need to remember, to make a conscious effort to understand others.

  • I believe that the only way to come out of your shell is to come out. WAKE UP  and dare to dream. Start writing goals, and then make plans. Do something every day with INTENTION  that will move you towards them. 
Just like in yoga, you can’t skip your foundation when it comes to personal development. Not really. You can kinda cheat along the way for a while, but you’ll always get knocked two steps back if you missed something and decided to be lazy because it was easier at the time. 
So why do I still feel like hiding? Because it’s easier? Because I’m exhausted? The only way to get stronger is to put in the work. Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. The only way to get better is to practice. Whether that be what time I want to get up in the morning, how I choose to NOURISH my body, how I choose to treat myself and others, how I make art and move my body, or how I add VALUE to my community. “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.” -Aristotle
