It may be cold outside but my workout got me feeling some type of way so it’s time for a ✨GIVEAWAY✨
These are some of the meal prep containers we have been using and I want to give 5 away to someone! They are a great tool to help motivate you to meal prep and so easy to store/clean.
Just tell me one thing you do to take care of yourself and tag a friend! Let’s remind each other that we matter and self care is important!
I Recently lost my Uncle..
My Uncle was a father of 17years old beautiful girl. He was such a nice person, very humble, with a smile on his face every day, He loved his job. But he suddenly decided to kill himself and no one still knows why.. Everyone reactions was "But He had everything!!" "Why did he do that?".. Having everything doesn't mean that you are mentally okay!!
Everyone can deal with mental illnesses, with depression.. This illness doesn't care if you are reach, poor, black or white you can still suffer from this.. Most of the time people are jealous of others but they dont really know what that deep inside this person is dying.. To those people who have everything but they still think that something wrong you're not alone.. Talk!!! Speak up!! YOU ARE NOT ALONE
After five long months of healing post hip surgery.
And it feels good, REALLY GOOD.
I truly love what I do.
It's a privilege to have the opportunity to impact the lives of those we meet. Often meeting them when they are at their most vulnerable. I don't take this lightly.
Though I must admit, this work didn't (and doesn't) always feel so great.
The thing that always remains true, and gives me the ability to navigate and overcome the challenges of this profession is the understanding that while the situations that cause me to not feel so great are not my fault, coping, navigating, addressing, and growing from them are without question 100% my responsibility.
This also applies to any and all events in my personal life.
While needing hip surgery wasn't my fault, recovery, building its strength, putting the proper nutrition in my body to aid healing, and holding myself accountable is my responsibility.
I owe it to myself and my patients. *** I often get asked "how do you do it?" and "how do you make the time?". To this, my answer is there is no how.
I choose it. *** Where do you need to start taking responsibility?
Just be beautifully you 🎶 .
I promise you, comparing will never help because we are so uniquely different we cannot be the same. .
Being a woman, the comparison game can be a thief, a thief of enjoying you for your own qualities. You ARE good enough, you ARE the wonderfully made, you ARE beautifully you! .
Start with appreciating one thing about yourself today!
Here I’ll go first, I appreciate that I am healthy today and that my body is feeling strong .
To my Queerly beloved trans* community,
This week is Trans* Awareness Week. For this I wanted to reach out in the only way that I know how... through my music.
When words alone fail to make sense I strive to combine them with rhythms and melodies to bring forth a full understanding of emotions and feelings. What I have to give to you is more than just a song, this is my promise to you that I believe in you, that you are worthy, and that you are never alone.
The concept of "Fulie-Tabu" hit me while I watched the T.V. show 'Taboo' and they brought up Trans* people. I sat and thought about the correlation between the two ideas, taboo and transgender. To me it seemed as though it was to sound as if we could not just be people, beautiful and worthy people. For over an hour I sat there contemplating the words taboo and beautiful with a list of synonyms in each column. That's when it hit me. I started and would not break eye contact with the word 'beautiful' as I spelled it out one letter at a time.. F-u-l... Until I got 'Fulie Tabu.'
(Fulie-Tabu) or fully taboo is 'beautiful' rearranged.
The idea being that just because you take something that's 'beautiful' and make it different, doesn't mean it's not still beautiful. (Literally speaking in this case.)
In a state of vulnerability I wrote this song first as a note to those who ostracized us then it evolved into a letter to all of us. Now to my fellow Trans* people, I hope that if you take anything from this song, it'll be a reminder of who we are, where we came from, and how much you(we) are truly worth.

“I was in a psychiatric hospital last year around this time.
Of course, looking at the calendar and remembering makes me anxious. Posting about it yet again makes me terrified. But y’all are my people, and you’ve carried me this past year.
Recovery isn’t a sprint to the finish line, but a winding journey with many detours and pit stops — and through my experiences with depression and anxiety these last few years, you have reminded me that I am not alone.
Thank you, friends. And while my posts stay lighthearted on Instagram — an alternative caption could’ve been “loving my new living room!” — I feel immensely blessed to have people who listen when I do share. xx”
