Deze prachtige passiebloem bloeit/ bloeide vandaag bij @ariette_nederlof in de tuin! Ik moest hem even vastleggen!! 💚💚

It was a great party... the dizzying heat of the lights, people's bodies pressed close to mine, the loud music pounding in my eardrums, my mind clouded and fuzzy from the vodka... and honestly Lewis wasn't as bad as I thought he'd be.
He bought me drinks, made decent conversation and was a good distraction from the stupid guy whose name I couldn't currently remember. The barman ran back and forth pouring us drink after drink. Seven, eight, nine... I stopped counting after that...
July winds are here.
Cleaning up after autumn’s fallen sheds.
Making sure we shake off all that dead weight.
Leaving us BARE, with nothing to cover up that which we thought we could hide! .
Like an old tree.
I stand upright and strong.
No rain to wash off my bruises.
No fruits to bear, nor make me look pretty.
Yet my roots remain firmly grounded. Safely rooted and feeding on underground streams that I never knew existed. .
I watched the leaves fall off... Felt the stem shed off dead bark...
Shook when the wind blew off all the dirt...
Leaving me plain with nothing and nowhere to hide. Exposed. .
It took me a while but now I understand.
Photosynthesis is seasonal.
The abundance of rain, long days of sun don’t make trees grow. Yet again, it’s neither the lack of water nor sun that kills trees.
Growth is not about beauty or bearing fruit.
It is about withstanding every season, natural and not.
For the Divine Creator provides for it all! OkaMasuku seyobona sekuqoqwa for spring cleaning 🌱🌱🌱 Connect with your source 🙏🏽. #Nature #TreeOfLife #Seasons #MotherNatureMyTeacher #BackToTheSource #ThatOtherZuluGirl . ❤️ Mrs G
Prep is half the battle with ANYTHING!
In seasons of crisis I find that prep is even MORE important and my stress level rises when I’m not prepared.
This seasons crisis is INFANCY. Yours might be weight loss, a new job or business, loss of a loved one...whatever it is...seasons of crisis breed stress. .
Look for things you can cut out of your timeline an daily schedule. Look for activities that can be bundled. Look for people that can help (and you have to be able to accept it will be done DIFFERENT than you would do the task.)
Right now. I’m bundling. I’m cooking a bunch of marinaded chicken that can be different meal components. . #timemanagement#bundling#seasons#worksmarter
When I had the girls my goals were to either stay home full-time or work verrrrry part-time until they were in full day school...
Being a SAHM was lonely, isolating, & came with all sorts of expectations I couldn’t achieve. [Stay at home moms, I salute you: you are doing the hardest (and most important, IMO) work]
This morning, as we were walking out the door, I peeked a fingerprint smeared mirror and smiled...
Smiled because it reminded me of that season of staying home with my girls so little & also because my girls will be the ones to clean their own fingerprints off the mirror✌🏻 #accountability
While the norm is to say, “I am so happy I can stay home full-time with my kids...”
I challenge that norm and say, “I am grateful I have the ability to work & provide for my family.”
Cheers to 7 months working full-time & to all you working moms who truly love having the ability to work.

T E M P O R A D A S:
A veces es difícil aceptarlo, quien sabe porqué los humanos estamos aferrados a la costumbre, tal vez porque la costumbre se vuelve cómoda y sin retos, nos manejamos mejor en lo conocido y nos da terror lo desconocido, lo nuevo, lo por aprender.
La temporada de fresas ya pasó por aquí, lo que alcancé a disfrutar y hacer con ellas ya no volverá -por decirlo de alguna manera- sino hasta el próximo invierno, ahora tengo uvas, y como las use y aproveche de sus beneficios, será mi responsabilidad.
Aprender a disfrutar lo que tenemos el día de hoy, si tengo un reto, si tengo una montaña, tal vez sea la temporada que me ayudará a probar un fruto que no he probado ni conocido en la temporada pasada. .

The girls from class and I ended up not being able to find models for avant garde so we found a solution and worked together to create these seasonal looks!
• @gorjesshairr and @makmakeupnbeauty did a fall inspired look on me
• Jessi and I did a winter inspired look on Makayla
• Makayla and I did a spring/summer look on Jessi!
Show up no matter what phase of life you are in. Showing up is being present with yourself. Putting your best foot forward. Giving 100% effort in your current season. You’ve got this! How is the full moon feels for you right now? Did you feel a shift of energy? Did you have any crazy dreams? Learning about the phases of the moon has been super interesting to me and the effects it has on our mood & energy. 🌕🌖🌗🌘🌑🌒🌓🌔🌕 #moonphase#mooncycle#seasons#beingpresent#fullmoon
