Loved the journal prompts today in @dreamlife_deluxe Mega Mindset Challenge - day two. The questions were much easier than yesterday, thinking about what I want and how I’d act differently if I had more confidence and trusted that everything is going to work out perfectly. Also, I love doing a gratitude list. I love remembering that I’m already living my number one big dream that I had for a long time, which is to be living in a hot location by the beach. I LOVE my current situation. I just want more! To inspire others and help others realise that they too can live their dreams. My biggest insight from today’s task is that I need to get more confident at showing up all the time, not just with videos of my puppies, but actually what I do and the thoughts I have. Are you working towards your dream life, trusting your journey that everything will work out perfectly? @goldenoasis @socialsbyjarrah @thebreakawaybabes @thevirtualhustle 💕💕💕 #dreamlifedeluxe

#omad Day 2! Monday and Tuesday are my late days at work so that makes this type of life easy. Dinner tonight was a glass of lovely red with homemade chipotle. That is a fajita beef, rice, pinto beans, salsa, and a bit of sour cream. Tomorrow will be interesting because I have my doctoral classes at home all day and I know part of my day I’ll be bored so keep your fingers crossed! But so far so good husband is rocking it as well! #DelayDontDeny #Intermittentfasting #OMADliving #onemealaday #IF #weightlossjourney #ObesityCode #omadlifestyle #authenticlife #keepingitreal #entrepreneur #womeninbusiness #acupuncturist #businessowner #strongwomen

@musicbydavie is Nashville-based performer, producer, writer, and musician—his EP “Black Gospel Vol. 1” is available on iTunes and Spotify. I first met him years ago in LA through mutual friends; it was probably on a dance floor. I’m sure of it. We bonded over our shared love of Beyoncé, and the rest is history. — Davie has performed at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits. You’ve probably heard his music on the Wild Turkey commercial with Matthew McConaughey, or on ESPN College Gameday. He’s in the thick of ‘making it.’ His dreams, years of hard work are paying off. But he’ll be the first to tell you none of this was overnight. His ‘now’ is happening because of the silent, unnoticed-by-man years of laying the groundwork. — You’ve seen his success; today we’re talking about the hustle that got him there. — Head over to the link in bio to hear his story (and a little live performance 😉)

✨Being challenged that is inevitable but being defeated that is optional.✨ . . How many times have you given up or quit because it got difficult? Listen, life is difficult and there will always be challenges, and failures and obstacles. There’s no way around it! What you do when you are faced with a challenge is what really matters and will define your life. We all make choices. You either chose to give up or you chose to keep going. Which do you chose? For me, giving up isn’t an option. 💪🏻👊🏻 . . I wasn’t always this way. I used to be SO negative about my life. I would say “why me” and “must be nice and easy for her”. I would chose to feel defeated and give up instead of powering through and looking at what I could learn from the obstacle. I would miss any positive aspect because I was only focused on the negative!! I was honestly miserable to be around and it affected all of my relationships. It wasn’t until I became apart of an amazing, positive fitness community that I finally started to change my mindset and my life. Not only did I get healthy and fit physically but it set me on a path of self development, mindset growth and my own mental health journey. Being surrounded by other women working on bettering themselves so they can help other women do that same is one of the best things I’ve ever been apart of! I’m the happiest and most positive I’ve ever been. Granted, I still have bad days where I wallow in self pity or negativity but I’m able to snap myself out of it now and have a community of women who can lift me up when I need it. 👭 . . I now work on my mindset every.since.day. It’s made me stronger when life throws me curve balls! Remember challenges are inevitable no matter who you are!! Preserve. Keep going. Don’t give up! Look at each challenge as something you can conquer and overcome instead of something that could destroy or defeat you. Change your thinking, change your life!!!! 💫💖

A client recently told me that she felt like her gut instinct or her sense of intuition, was broken. In that moment my heart hurt for her because I could feel it. I could sense the disconnect she was describing. And it's true. We live in a time and a place where it is so easy to get really far away from our true selves and our deepest values. We live in a time and a place where we can essentially slap a "bandaid" on almost every problem and keep on keepin' on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The struggle happens when the bandaids slide off. We find ourselves with a million paper cuts and bruises that make us want to crawl out of our skin. Part of what helps us to feel whole, healthy and sufficient is making choices that feel good to us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today I encourage you to choose for yourself ,and do the thing you know you need in order to help yourself feel good.

“Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.” 🙏🏼 What questions are you asking yourself? When's the last time you sat down and did an inventory of what's working for you and what is not? Did you write it down? If we can see where our energy leaks are & take action, we can change our situations. The more specific we are, the better answers we get. ✨ "Am I where I want to be financially?" "Are my relationships satisfying & enriching?" "Have I been consistent with my word?" "Where can I improve?" "How can I be of better service to my community?" These are all great questions to ask, and the list can change depending on where you're at in any given moment. The important part is to stay curious & keep asking the questions.

The Dos and Don'ts of Transformations. . . We often think, "I can't do what they did...they are smarter/more talented/have more money/have more time/not as many responsibilities as I do." And yet, here's the thing, 'they' whoever they are, don't have those things or I should say, don't have any massive advantages over you. . . You might think so but I promise, under the surface, they don't. . . Transformations are funny things ~ we often aren't sure they are happening until we're there...bam! In the middle of the muck and mire of movement. . . So, some quick dos and don'ts for you. . . Don't believe everyone has it easier than you do. Don't believe it is out of your reach. If you're dreaming it then there's something there. Go for it! Don't let other people's voices get in your way. Just go. Put in your earplugs, or turn up the volume on your favorite music but don't listen. . . Do know that you're capable of far more than you're giving yourself credit for. Do know that it won't come without a cost but that cost will likely be worth it. Do remember that progress often leads to a bit of a mess first; it's OK, you'll clean it up. . . Ready for more in your life? Ready to make transformations that will move mountains for you? Take you to new heights? Book your call with me to see if my program, Trailblazing Transformation, is right for you. . . Oh yeah! And do that now because I'm only offering it to a select few who really want to get where they want to go! https://bit.ly/2qUL6zv. . . #lcurtiscoaching #masterclass #liveyourtruthspeakyourtruth #gratitude #gettingitdone #livinglighterandbrighter #boundaries #clarity #liveyourlife #livingyourlifeoutloud #lightupyourlife #coaching #lifecoach #lovelife #authenticlife #lifeoutloud

#Instagramchallenge ~~<•>~~ #wellnesswednesday Question: What is your weekly wellness regime you can't do without? ~~<•>~~ Being in nature is pure medicine for me. I cannot let a few days (or one week) go by without uprooting myself from behind my computer and planting myself in nature for a good long dunk in the arms of Mother Nature. ~~<•>~~ I may end up at the beach, in the forest, at a park or just simply barefoot on a patch of grass if I'm in a city with no green spaces. ~~<•>~~ Nature is part of my wellness regime, she recharges me, fills my spirit, encourages me to breathe deep and pause to witness and reflect. She reminds me of how small I am and how insignificant my concerns are in the bigger scheme of life. ~~<•>~~ I chase sunsets, wait patiently for the moon to rise and allow myself to fully immerse myself in that moment with no distractions, knowing this will bring me back into balance. ~~<•>~~ Join us today in sharing your #wellnesswednesday weekly regime that you can't do without and tag me! . . . #delamaydevi #wellnesslifestyle #yogateacher #yogamentor #trustingtheprocess #honestyisthebestpolicy #yoginilife #yoginilifestyle #yogainspo #grateful 🙏 #lifehack #consciousliving #authenticlife #abundantlife #ibizabeach #ibizayogaretreat #refineyourart #naturesmedicine #balancedlife #pranaflow #pranavinyasa #nonstretchypants

Happy 11th Birthday to my Archie and Rissie. What an amazing 11 years it has been. You have explored countless dirt roads with me and walked thousands of miles. You have put up with my inclination to do things on a whim and as a result, moved to a tiny country town where we found our cottage with its lemon tree and donned backpacks for adventures far, far away. You have experienced grief and heartache and endless joy. You have made me smile more times than I can remember. Your hearts are kind and your spirits are brave. I can't wait to see what the next 11 years bring. #startthedaywithsomethingbeautiful

Spring is in the air. The season for love. I’m talking about nutrition for the soul, as we do not function in isolation, our body feels and responds to all stimulus - we are incredible creatures in this regard. ❤️. Love...it means many things and changes form for each of us. It sends our hormones racing through a circus of cascading psychological waterfalls - beautiful and at other times tragic. But we have not fully experienced the gift of this life until it touches us - both what we share with our partner, our family, our friends and most importantly ourselves. 😍. In a world where we are encouraged to compete, self deprecate and avoid looking inward, I choose to do the opposite. I can honestly say I love so many people. I’d probably be in jail for random acts of affection but it feels sublime telling and showing people you love them. (The rebel in me dislikes being “appropriate” but sometimes I must 😁). Do you show and express how you feel to others and practice self love? It is part of the holistic wellness picture and unless we address this aspect of ourselves we maybe missing out a vital part of our healing. 🌅. Get on it and see what happens - I promise it will make yours and the recipients day - do it with no attachment or expectation but because you feel alive!!! This stuff has a massive positive impact on the quality of your mitochondria. 🙏😍❤️. I love you! . . . #revivalnutrition #mindfulfoodideas #consciousliving #trustingtheprocess #authenticlife #3pillarsofhealth #wellness #selflove #selfcare #digdeep #emotionalhealth #love #gratitude #mindyourmitochondria #cellularenergy #quantumphysics #relationships #putitoutthere

I never want these days to end, I want to always be by your side, and be called your wife! Thank you for being the incredible man and husband that you are to me.

Need #Courage ? Swipe! Courage isn’t just something you are naturally born with, it can be cultivated. In this post, I want to share with you a few tips that will help using: #LifeCoaching + #Yoga + #EssentialOils Ready? NOTE: — Check my latest IGTV episode for MORE — Check stories for fave foot massage oil for courage! Tip 1: Get so excited about what you will get when you confront your fear, the fear isn’t as hard. Tip 2: Bookend your action: Do something just before you take your action to get energized & once you are done, do something to replenish your energy. Tip 3: Valor: Rub your feet with Valor - the oil of courage. It grounds the “crazies”, the millions of thoughts that distract you into your feet so you feel calmer and grounded. Tip 4: Northern Lights Black Spruce: Helps you stay grounded as you reach for really big dreams. Tip 5: Tadasana: Stand strong on your two feet, feel your heart open, stare into your eyes in a mirror and recite your affirmations. Tip 6: Warrior II: Build courage with this powerful pose. Send your affirmations out into the cosmos. Tip 7: Ustrasana: Quintessential courage pose, this pose will give you the umph you need to take your next step. Tip 8: Celebrate: Honor your step!

I came downstairs this morning to find this ‘still life’ on my leather armchair and thought, yes, this pretty much sums me up! . The two extremes of my life, neither of which overpowers the other right now. Yet, if I had to choose, I’d give up the gold for the comfort. Those hippie roots (and I use the term lightly) sure die hard. I found myself straying from them for a while but I feel them pulling me back. . I’m wondering, what two objects in your possession represent your polar opposites, your yin & yang, your past and present perhaps? . . . . #yinandyang #polaropposites #oppositesattract #hippiespirits #wannabehippie #whoami #comfortfirst #spiritualpeace #spiritualwealth #pastandpresent #pastandfuture #stilllifegalery #stilllifephotos #twosidestoeverystory #twosidesofme #youdontknowme #gettingtoknowme #dualpersonality #myfairlady #transitions #alwaysgrowing #alwayschanging #alwaysevolving #personalgrowthanddevelopment #seekingpeace #authenticlife #truetoyourstory #truetoyou #shineon #bethelight

Just a girl in Starbucks whipping up some dreams and goals. Have I talked recently about working from a place of rest instead of hustle? I wasn’t sure if I’d mentioned it here {sarcasm}. . This is your friendly reminder that functioning out of rest doesn’t = being lazy. It means trusting the Man Upstairs & and heck, believing in yourself & going for it until He tells you to sit down. #MoreHeartLessHustling

When I was younger I heard this joke and thought it was hilarious: ⠀ 'There are two stages in life:⠀ 1. Being young⠀ 2. Taking up gardening' 🌱⠀ •⠀⠀ Told this joke to all my friends and as I hit 25 or so, realised I loved plants and I wished I could garden! 🍀 ⠀ •⠀⠀ They say we change every 7 years- not just our bodies, but some of our character traits, likes/ dislikes and etc. ⠀ •⠀⠀ Some things from my life that confirm it's true:⠀ - Liking olives⠀ - Liking avocados 🥑⠀ - Regularly going to a choir⠀ - Unexpected love for cats 🐈 (I blame youtube)⠀ - Liking gardening⠀ - Taking up crochet⠀ •⠀⠀ Rather than saying 'I'm getting old' (what most people may say), I'd like to celebrate how amazing it is that we can go about life and have an abundance of things every few years that bring us joy and excitement. 💃🏽⠀ •⠀⠀ And it's so important to embrace what you truly like, without thinking about other people's judgment. I just wonder what may come next... 🏄🏻♂⠀ •⠀⠀ Name ONE change you've noticed in yourself in the past year? ⠀ •⠀

Art has so many forms for me snd the Blue Ridge dishes is one! A favorite decorating task for me is setting my fall table with pieces I love. I try to mix it up each year and add a few different items, but the base pattern is Cyclamen. I love the movement in the painting of the flowers and the transition from summer to fall in the color as seen on its leaves. This year, I added sweet demitasse cups (I just never did quite see practical mountain women sitting and drinking tea or coffee from these) and the individual ashtrays to be used for butter dishes.( I have to admit I had never seen one of these in my grandmother’s or aunt’s homes, but they are precious little square plates). It’s kinda bittersweet with my mom’s recent passing on to eternity, but a tradition that helps me hold her close in my heart. And for those of you new to the area or have not heard about Blue Ridge Dishes.... When the railroad came to Erwin, the pottery came to help the supervisors and “Big Wheels” adjust to this wilderness area and they even had a special set of Clinchfield China made just for them. This pottery opened up a way to make money for many mountain women and some men who were taught to paint the one brushstroke method for creating designs. There were molds created especially for the dishes, huge kilns for baking them snd the dishes were sold all over the world. Some specialty pieces are outrageously priced. ( None of mine😊) My sweet mother was one of those women, and she loved her job. She told so many stories of her time there, and recall them as I place each piece on the table. So.... there ya go... a little East Tennessee history and a table set for fall..... Happy Tuesday!! (BTW... does anyone have any Blue Ridge stories???!!!). . . #create #makeart #arteducator #tennesseeartist #kitchenart #dishes #blueridgedishes #southernpotteries #tennessee #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #artforlife #authenticlife #tablesetting #tabledecor #livelifetothefullest #reneepittsart

I am in complete awe at the incredible love we’ve received this last week. 🙆🏻‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The idea of family is something that I have cherished as far back as I can remember. With no siblings, I looked up to my cousins immensely, I treasured friendships and held on to my pets with everything I could muster in my heart. I even studied the psychology of family in college, as I so badly wanted to understand the dynamics of lineage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we finally were blessed with expecting a family of our own, we spent hours talking about how we create a boisterous, loving, inspiring, extended family for our little man, only to realize that one doesn’t need to be created, an extraordinary one exists. This week it is hitting home more than ever and I would be completely remiss to not post a dedication to the family we’ve been lucky enough to cultivate over the last decade (plus a few). It is not lost on us, just how loved he already is. He has been showered with love, advice and incredible generosity. We thank our lucky stars for the wondrous teachings and life experience he will get from each of you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A special thank you to the remarkable women who have hosted showers over this last week, @lauraraephotography @mavenevents @meg_dennison @goldenrulecollective @grayhomelifestyle 🌿🌲🖤You are appreciated beyond words. We love you.

The Voice of Bali 😁❤ We feel every day & every walk the music and the spirit on the way to our Room. We are in love with this amazing idea, to hide the sound in the "Jungle" 🌴👍 ♡ Auch wenn wir täglich mehrmals durchgelaufen sind, haben wir immer wieder gestaunt, wie toll doch die Idee ist, die lange Strecke durch den Hoteleigenen "Dschungel" zu laufen und dabei interessante und balinesische Klänge zu hören- und das, ohne zu wissen, woher sie kommen. Klar, irgendwann wussten wir beim genauen belauschen und hinschauen, wo sich die Boxen befinden 😅 Es ist so toll, wie sehr mich die Musik immer wieder beruhigt und in eine andere Welt eintauchen lassen hat. Ich kann jedem diese tolle Welt empfehlen! 🙏🌴💕 ♡ #bali #indonesia #nusadua #meliabali #meliaresorts #ubud #kuta #seminyak #sanur #tegalalang #beachwalk #sundown #sun #summervibes #video #shortvideo #berlin #germany #vacation #withhusband #swag #dope #love #music #feelthemusic #feelings #goodtimes #ig #reallife #authenticlife @meliabali

Dig deep, get to know yourself, reach out to that fearless kid in you who once dreamt big and saw nothing was impossible. Start to let go of society’s expectations of you and become YOU. Who are you? And why are you here? Will you be the one to take YOU on that journey of self love, self care, self growth, self discovery? Who else but you is going to make those dreams hidden beneath fear, worry, and shame bloom into existence? Only YOU. 💕 . So, start here. Write it all out. Take a pen and paper and let go of those anxiety’s that are stopping you from that growth. Dump all of your mind and heart into paper, and then start to dream again. Write your hopes, your wants, your needs, and your most deepest desires. Affirm yourself, start believing again, and start to take steps into your authentic and shameless LIFE. THIS IS YOUR TIME.😌✌🏽 #shamelessfreedom

I AM STANDING UP FOR MEN SPEAKING OUT . . . Every week, 84 men in the UK take their own lives. The majority will have suffered in silence or tried to self-medicate themselves...and failed. . . Many men are too embarrassed to admit to themselves or others when they are mentally struggling to cope, believing it somehow makes them appear weak and less of a man. . As men our ‘strong and silent’ response is costing too many lives preventing many of us from seeking help when we need it most. . It’s time for us to be Strong NOT Silent and share our struggles. . Coming out gay at age 17 was isolating, and although I had some supportive friends, it was a long tough journey to here. It was equally tough for my family at times. At some point on that journey I lost a complete sense of who I was, what I wanted to contribute to the world and I almost gave up. I am not alone in this. Others have this struggle later in life and lose this sense of self in other ways. Don’t hold it all in, let the emotions out and express yourself. It’s ok to not be ok. . Help is always there, you just need to ask. . If you have no-one to talk to, you can talk to me. I will listen. . . @mymanorlondon #strongnotsilent #sharethestruggle #nohealthwithoutmentalhealth #gaylifecoach #liveauthentically #ruok #worldmentalhealthday2018 #timrsnell #Authenticlife
