Had a date night with this saucy minx last night. Plans went from all-night bender at Bombay, to dinner and a drive in movie, to dinner and a movie locally...and resulted in scoffing toasted sammidges and sitting up the front fucking row for Bohemian Rhapsody. I couldn't ask for a better lady to experience that comedy of errors with! 😍😂❤️ #loveyourmother
I remember being a little kid and being absolutely astonished at nature. I would forage around the backyard for earth elements to make healing potions. I could spend hours sorting through rocks and stones searching for treasure and feeling their vibrations. I thought there were fairies everywhere and that if I just learned the ways of earth and fire and water and air they would come to support me and grant my wishes. I always felt that the earth and the stones and the trees and the water could heal anything. I was witchy. I knew with 100% certainty that the earth was alive and full of magic. Although I have forgotten much of what I once knew to be true, I still believe the rocks and stones and ocean and sun and earth and sky and fire and air can heal anything. That the Earth is our source of all magic and beauty and that if we treat her right and call out to her with love and respect she will answer and heal anything. It is my prayer today that human consciousness shifts to radically give back to her what she has given to us. That we resolve to heal her and nourish her and appreciate her beauty. Many of us have largely forgotten what we once knew was true, that she is our mother and we must love her and protect her. #earth#water#elements#happyugratitudechallenge#loveyourmother @happyuyoga
Today @joshuakeenedunn and I spent a beautiful day with his momma. We ate a delicious breakfast, drank tons of coffee, went on a nice 2 hour walk in the sunshine, shopped at a neighborhood pop up and snuggled up and watched The Great British Baking Show..followed by a big ole pot of gumbo 🍁 #loveyourmother
My Mother: a love I have that never wanes. My mother I believe was very pleasing to the eye.
I had to unlearn a lot of what she taught me & relearn a more functional way of living. I had to find a home at 16 1/2 & raise myself. I needed to find my own faith & heal from a confusing & I believe messy example & taste of faith & religion.
Though at 21 when I got the call, ‘we think your Mother has 10 mins to live,’ I drove like a stunt driver to be by her side.
And as I threw my arms around her, & kissed her she handed me a letter. ‘I love you. I am sorry I didn’t choose to support you & be a good example.
You have a strength I’ve been searching for.
Always go with your gut instinct Sam, your intuition. I have pushed it down all my life.
Always remember people have to earn your love & trust don’t give it so freely.
Don’t wait for Life to happen. Create it.
Please look after the family. I know you have the capacity.’ Mum survived the surgery. She returned home & started to recover. She gave her blessing for me to move to Europe for a year or two, 7 months later.
About 72 hours into my European adventure I received a call. ‘Sam your mother has a super bug at the site of her surgery. She has heart and lung failure . We don’t think she’ll survive the next 24 hours.’ It took me 36 hours to return home to Brisbane from Istanbul, Turkey. I attended her bedside every day for her last five months. In that time we developed a mother daughter bond. Only I became more the carer, wiping her bottom when she went to the toilet. Pushing her wheelchair. Holding her after the doctor told her there was nothing she could do & my father saying she couldn’t come home. She said, ‘I always said one day I’ll make a change. One day I will have the courage. Now I don’t have that day.’ My mother was fully up to date in her end of days. She had total peace. I stood by her side like some kind of warrior to ensure it. I neglected/abandoned myself to some extent during this time.
However, despite all we’d experienced I loved her. And today although she is not with me I still love her and I thank God that we had the time to love each other beautifully. #loveyourmother#choosejoy
I can’t imagine a morning without yoga and meditation any more than I can imagine a morning without breathing. A handful of times, for whatever reason, I’ll give myself permission to skip my morning practice — but I never, ever do. This stuff is woven into the fabric of my being; it’s just part of me now. And so much of what I do during my day is in direct or indirect support of my practice; how I connect to my breath, myself and others; how I think and reason; how I carry + fuel my body. There’s a much deeper, much longer discussion here that exceeds the scope of an Instagram caption, but in a nutshell: I just can’t bring myself to consume suffering and fear anymore. What we eat + drink literally becomes the structure of our minds and bodies. We build every cell out of what we take in. And no where do I feel this more acutely than on my mat. In a space where lightness and sattva are such an asset, suffering and fear have no good place. I want to embody peace, literally + figuratively. And with that in mind, I can no longer support anything that stands in direct opposition to that. For the sake of my yoga practice. For the sake of this incredible planet and all her precious inhabitants. For the sake of all that I hold dear + true. And for the sake of myself. Forever grateful for the wake up call. #knowbetterdobetter
#ad Is there one present from your childhood that sticks out in your mind as your favorite?! For me, it was probably anything to do with Barbies 😂... For Kellan, I’m thinking it may be this @ThomasAndFriends Super Station! It is compatible with all of the #ThomasAndFriends trains we already have and it’s under $100 at Walmart! Bonus mom points that it also holds over 100 trains (aka not laying all over the floor 🙌🏻)
I shared this toy in my toddler boy gift guide so I’ll put that link in my bio. Head to my stories to see more! 🚂 #SuperStationWalmart
