Kalau berkunjung ke Garut Kidul, tentu tidak akan asing dengan pemandangan hewan ternak yang sedang menyebrang seperti ini, khususnya di jalan Miramare, kec. Cibalong yang juga di lalui jalan nasional PANSELA. Terkadang hewan ternak ini sangat mengganggu dan terkadang juga membuat suasana perjalanan ketika melintasinya menjadi eksotis.
Perjuangan berkunjung ke Garut Kidul tidak hanya akses jalan yang belum semua tertata dengan rata dan jalan yang berkelok kelok saja yang menjadi rintangan, tapi ada perjuangan dan (Pengorbanan Waktu) juga yaitu harus melewati gerombolan hewan hewan yang ada di jalan raya. "Makna Sebuah Pengorbanan" .
Selamat Raya Idul Adha 1439 H🙏
Mohon Maaf Lahir & Batin🙏

Hoje vivi uma tarde como Alice, a morena, no país das maravilhas.
A @gracekaneblai está com 4 cenários lindos contanto a história da “Alice no país das maravilhas” e eu, claro, fui lá realizar um sonho, que eu nem sabia que tinha.
O cenário vai ficar até 30/08
‘Anyone who knew Violet well could tell she was thinking hard, because her long hair was tied up in a ribbon to keep it out of her eyes’ - Series of Unfortunate Events
There is a very interesting relationship between women and their hair. We are controlling it, taming it, or freeing it somehow using these as metaphors for our souls. Styling it to reflect our personalities, long, short, colored, wavy, curly, straight, shaved, woven, braids, up, down, ponytails and messy buns. When a woman wants to ‘reinvent herself’ one of the first notable things she does is change her hair. -
At times a woman’s hair can reveal her inner thoughts or her attitudes. Sometimes I have mine down and in my face if I am feeling shy or I am throwing it up out of my face because I am ready to take on an awesome project.
Having the ability to interact with our hair is important for women. 4 years ago a teenager with a limb difference shared with me that she was annoyed that she was unable to put up her hair on her own. The features of her arm made reaching behind her head, gathering hair, and navigate a ponytail holder a challenge. She shared that she had to decide in the morning if she wanted her hair up or down for school and having her mom complete the task. This worked fine in elementary and middle school sure, however now as a high schooler this became less fine- wanting to develop independence she asked how I put up my hair.
We sat there on the grass exploring various stratigues and after a little while she did it on her own! It was messy and imperfect sure, but it was hers. She owned it. She was beautiful and powerful! -
In that moment I thought “This is what I want to do for the rest of my life” -
2 years later I started an Occupational Therapy program at Boston University.
Here’s to more projects and the freedom to express ourselves with our hair 💁🏻♀️
..La belleza es subjetiva. A veces el atractivo de una persona no se basa en su aspecto, sino en el modo en el que te hace reír o en cómo es capaz de leerte la mente..😉

I may or may not still have my suitcases sitting in my office room. Unpacked. I’m going through my pictures from my NYC trip and wanted to share with you one of the few things that I got to experience while there. I was able to visit the Statue of Liberty with one of my good friend AnnMarie. I played the tourist and took tons of pictures! Even got a few with my instax SQUARE SQ6 Head on over to the blog for more pictures and some tips for visiting the Statue of Liberty @fujifilm_instax_northamerica #instaxSQ6#gifted#fujifilm#instax#solotravelingisfun
How do I achieve #balance between full time work and side hustle and speaking events and travel and social media and brand campaigns and working out and my personal life? .
In all honesty, there is no such thing as perfect balance. .
We are all entitled to time off, time away, and time to do absolutely nothing at all. .
This is the key to my attempt at balance.
Some nights I get off work and sit and watch mindless TV, or endless @nbcsvu and don’t even open my laptop. Some mornings I sleep until I wake up and don’t even set an alarm.
You see, there is this huge misconception out there that you should have “no days off”, and that you should “sleep when you’re dead”, and that you can’t rest until you’ve “made it”. Well, I think that’s all bullshit.
I work very hard and it feels like I have multiple full time jobs, but I can assure you that I take time to myself and I also take time to do nothing at all. .
If I didn’t take that time, I’d be so run down that I wouldn’t be able to put my energy and passion and wholehearted efforts into the work that I do. .
So, next time you feel like doing nothing, or you wanna take a step back and just have some down time, DO IT. .
You can take that down time and still be productive and have good intention and momentum and be working toward your goals the other days of the week.
If I didn’t do it I’d be an effing crazed lunatic royal hot mess. So there’s that. .
2015 OLYMPIA🏅 -VS- NOW
I vowed that being fit and healthy would be a lifetime commitment... not just something I did for competition. The primary reason I started competing was to push my body and mind to all new heights.
When competing started to make me feel like I wasn't fit enough or that I needed to improve on things that I already knew were great, I walked away. It's now been almost 3 years and honestly I couldn't be happier with my decision.
In case you were wondering...

#transformationtuesday One year of re-comp 💪🏽My recent check-in with my coach has me in the feels. He always knows the right thing to say when I need to hear it. Sometimes I think he has more faith in his clients than we do in ourselves! Currently sitting 9 weeks out from my first competition and I finally addressed something that has been bothering me for years, self-sabotage. I told my coach I do my training 100% and my meals are 95% but once a week I go HAM on the food and sabotage all my efforts. He sent me a link to a podcast and I will share it with anyone interested. It really helped me realize the bigger picture of what is going on. The podcast talked about how the major issue is really a lack of appropriate emotional control and that self-sabotage isn’t really real 🤯 The podcast explains how self-sabotage is really just a conflict of goals at the same time with one winning over the other. Say what?? For example.. Here are two specific instances I realized I encounter often. 1. We are at dinner with friends. I have my competition goals but there is also my innate need to feel included and not like the odd one out. This past weekend I ordered off the menu vs taking my own meal to the restaurant because I didn’t want to feel awkward. Instead of canceling, knowing I can’t eat out at this place I went to feel included and satisfy that innate need of being part of the group. Example 2. At home alone and I just say F it and start eating all the sweets and snacks in the house justifying it’s just this once. I have my competition goal but I also in that moment felt the need to eat for comfort. The thought of being on stage or judged on this public platform had me unconsciously seeking comfort so the food goal wins keeping me complacent so I never reach my goal of competing. Anyways..the podcast really resonated with me. I feel empowered having more self-awareness so that I can be more conscious of my surroundings and make better decisions next time the urge is there. Take time to work on your mind and not just your body..You would be amazed at how far you can push yourself once you take the time to master your mindset. It needs work daily 💚
