“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb....Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:13-16. • Isn’t it amazing and comforting to know God knew us before we were even born? A zillion years ago I was born on November 13. I was the youngest of five kids, and my Mama was already in love with me. She named me Shelley even before I arrived and called me that all through my life. She and Daddy did their best and made sure all my needs and many of my wants were met. They instilled in me a love of the written word and would be so proud that I’ve become an author. But the greatest blessing they gave me was making sure I knew Jesus. I will be eternally grateful for parents who gave me Truth and Light. •Today I’m blessed to be a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend. God has given me every desire of my heart and then some. I have bills and ailments and problems just like everyone else, but the blessings far out weigh and out shine the troubles the world offers. •So those are my ponderings on this day of my birth. I look forward to a future bright with blessings because I am a child of the King, redeemed by my LORD Jesus. ❤️🎉🎂 #birthday #ponderings #reflecting #life #blessed #psalm139

Peace and blessings... • Blessed... • We are in a world where many things are taking for granted. So abundantly given time after time we tend to forget, its foundation, source and center from which all blessings come... Today is a great day to reflect on two meaningful words, "GIVING THANKS!" Giving thanks for: • BREATH • 🏞🏜🏖🏔 • 🛀🧦🧤👔 • ACTIVITY OF OUR LIMBS • OUR 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 & friends • 🏠🏡🏦🏨🌍 • JOBS • 🐶🐎🦓🦌🐣🐐🦋🦉🐞🐝🕷🌺🍁🌾🌻 • 📰 📱☎️💱 •🧘‍♀️🧘‍♂️ •❤🙏🏼✌🙌😇 Gratitude at its fullest... #Reflecting who we are, in some cases the more we have the less grateful we become. Acting if thought we are owed life. Appreciating all in which carries us on #journeys through #time and #patience. To blessed to be stressed Tuesday, let it roll all off our shoulder and turn on our love light in our hearts. Being as thankful as we possibly can be, trusting our needs will be met. Not to forget too much is given, much is required. Stressing is not the answer... Blessing is a natural way of #healing , feeling true laws of nature. In our natural state of being, feeling remorseful as we face those many things we take for granted. Learning to apply more gratitude in all that we are. #Graceful determination in all that we do. If only we could be #thankful all year as we are to the day of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is everyday! Keeping our souls planted in gratitude. Compassion for others, in our life-long efforts to create an endless cycle of giving. Paying it forward ultimately on a #daily. We can never beat creation in giving. #Giving is not always monetary, things and valuables. What is more valuable that great conversations, loving hugs and time spent with one another? After all we only live once... Maybe just this one time kindness could be life saving and life changing. Just a thought... Why stress when we're #being extremely #blessed. To blessed too be stressed #Tuesday. How about counting our blessings, naming them one by one. We would probably not have enough trees, wood or paper to write it all down. Once again humbly thankful!Much love &✌ #remember how blessed and special you are. Simpy, smiling and giving thanks for every blessing...

This post is inspired by something I saw + read this morning. ⁣ ⁣ I saw some vendors that have participated in our past events connect at another show and while I would love to take credit for their friendship fest, I can’t. But, I LOVE IT! ⁣ ⁣ When we host shows, this is something that is always on the forefront of our minds. We want to create an environment that is friendly and full of only positive vibes for our vendors + for our shoppers. ⁣ ⁣ I truly believe that it is so important for our community of vendors to welcome, support + just be kind to one and other. We are all in it together and you never know when you will need a helping hand or a quick bathroom break 😉. ⁣ ⁣ I’m so thankful that I have surrounded myself with some of the best humans in the biz. 💗.

Last night my grandpa was taken to the hospital after having some sort of internal seizure. He’s doing better now and will likely be released today but the whole thing got me thinking about how temporary everything is and how quickly things can change. I definitely didn’t call as much as I could. The truth is I got lucky.. and I share this in hopes that someone can take something from my experience. Don’t wait to tell your friends how much they mean to you, the cute girl or guy that you like them or that your loved ones are loved. Life’s just too short🧡 // . . . . . . . . . #Reflecting

It’s always nice to know where you lie in peoples lives. Like this past few weeks I’ve learned so much. How I don’t fucking exist to some that I used to consider family, but not anymore bc clearly I don’t exist to them. And others think they can stab me in the back and not expect consequences. While others tell me they care while their actions say the exact opposite. Then there are a microscopic few who put in the tiniest of effort to make it known they care. All while I look at my broken heart on my shoulder and realize things will never change... I’ll continue to care more than I should, wearing my heart on my sleeve and allowing everyone to destroy it. It’s in my nature to be who I am and I cannot change. . . . . #livinglife #girlswithtattoos #tattooedgirls #treehugger #naturelover #brandambassador #tattooedwomen #gettinghealthy #girlswithpiercings #chickswithpiercings #soulsearching #reflecting #journey #itsoktonotbeok #mentalhealthawareness #pinkhair #pinkhairdontcare #geek #geekygirls #empath #onewiththeworld #beautifuldisaster

Perhaps that was the thing about acquiring all I had never had. It was the very moment I realized it wasn’t enough...enough to raise my family alone, without demonstrated love and compassion.. You can’t force someone to want the same things, if they don’t want a family, forgive and let go. It’s okay, it’s okay to understand that people’s wants change. It was the most graceful experience to look at someone, and accept what you already knew. To demonstrate amicably, to show children, that people change. Things change. Life, is forever changing. • • • #Family #SamPartyOf4 +🐾 #Final #6MonthsLater #Reflecting

Soooo I started a podcast 🎙& honestly I’m just as shocked as you are 🤷🏻‍♀️ but I felt an INTENSE urge & I’m allll about just jumping in & figuring things out later. It’s a blessing & a curse 😂. ... When I got the idea, I decided to just brain dump in a google doc and I was shocked at how in-depth and detailed I got. I had a list of 20 names of women I wanted to interview, of stories I wanted to share, and that’s kinda what did it for me. I owed these 20 women an additional platform to share their story because they clearly inspired me! ... The first episode is a solo Sam episode😳. I This is the scariest thing I’ve done in a long time but I think that means it needs to be shared. There were a lot of tears (edited many out) shed while recording for this previous version of myself. In this first episode I share a bit of my “story” of hitting a rock bottom place and how I got out of it and how I’m STILL working on it. I’ve told myself this story over and over but have only told a handful of people the details. I’ve essentially convinced myself that this is “no big deal”. My problem isn’t as big as other people’s: no one died. No one is sick. But I was reminded this weekend that we don’t have to rationalize something that was emotionally damaging and traumatic. You don’t just forget about your problems because you don’t perceive it to be as big or bad as someone else’s. Problems & situations that cause us pain come in different shapes & sizes—one is not more worthy of compassion & understanding than another. Your feelings are valid. ... The link to my podcast is in my bio if you’d like to give it a listen🤗. I’m excited to have 3 interviews lined up to bring you the stories of other inspiring and powerful women. Let me know if you listen & if you connected with it in anyway! ... You are stronger. You are a STRONGirl. 💪🏼 ... #strongirl #femaleempowerment #femalepodcaster #personaldevelopment #loa #lawofattraction #mindsetiseverything #thoughtsbecomethings #gratitudedaily #share #reflecting #personaltrainer #bossbabe #fearless

“Trois allumettes une à une allumées dans la nuit La première pour voir ton visage tout entier La seconde pour voir tes yeux La dernière pour voir ta bouche Et l'obscurité tout entière pour me rappeler tout cela En te serrant dans mes bras” a poem by Prévert about #love , which actually helps me celebrate #hope. Instead of waiting, instead of trying to understand, I just try to #feel. I took this pic during a walk with my dog, and I find walking helps me to switch off and put my brain to a rest, to more efficient #reflecting. This poem is not only for #lovers , but also for those ones who want to start off right, having themselves as priority. How long are we waiting? How many #doubts and how many #questions are still to be answered? It doesn’t matter, call me a #dreamer (which I take as a compliment!!) but hopes and dreams are always #stronger than any other difficulty or limit! I see it in the eyes of my loved ones. It doesn’t matter what your struggle is, we are here to fight and we will make it through. Might sound very cheesy. But that’s how I think. Also sending HOPE AND STRENGTH to people in California, dealing with such huge terrible fires, and to those ones in big danger, even if their problems won’t make it till the breaking news. You are heard, we are listening, we are taking care of you too. #theplumeriaproject #motivation #positivity #nomatterwhat #wonderingsoul #reflecting #takingtime #recovery #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #icare #sky #sunset #walking #countryside

BLESSED As @ajcalitz is set out to do another 100km #kwayskyrun this weekend, we are just reminded of our #family miracle. The blessing to still enjoy his running, his family and health🙏 This photo was taken just short of a year and half ago after his big stroke. Seeing your very capable athlete husband paralyzed,slurring and disengaged strapped in an ICU hospital bed - just makes you realise how much we take for granted. Even if we are super healthy - we are not invincible. After this roller coaster ride: we just had to get away and spend time together as a family - Mauritius did us sooo good. (This is about as much relaxing you can get with AJ!) Little Emilie had a ball of a time and not long after we received the happy news that our little Jean-Paul is on his way.😉 Every now and then I look back and am so grateful to God that he spared my husband and even gave me a mini-me ginger boy as a bonus. Not everyone shares the same happy ending (I know as I lost my sister to Malaria) but as encouragement: look at the silver lining in your life... life does not always make sense - as we see in part. But I have learnt to appreciate the moments and make them count! #strokesurvivor #familyadventures #appreciate #tb #reflecting #nowfamilyof4 #traveladventure #lifeafterstroke #blessed #mauritius #gratefulheart #calitztribe #trailrunninglife #timetoreflect #doingfamilywell

There is #growth in being #vulnerable. There is #wisdom in being #honest. In no way, shape or form can you #improve without #reflecting on the self. The best part is you can be vulnerable with #Yahweh , you can be honest with Yahweh and Yahweh can help you reflect. Allow Him to #heal you. Allow Him to fill that void. Ask Him to heal you. Ask Him to fill that #void. Breaking free from your past chains is a beautiful blessing. #scriptureaais #scriptureasitshould #holybible #psalm #psalm30 #Psalm302 #Psalm302kjv #letgo #letgoandletgod #emptiness #loneliness #depression #pain #suffering #suicidal #hurtpeoplehurtpeople #love

New Day New Opportunity 🙌🏻☀️ There is one question that I am asking myself again «What do I want?» As I‘ve learned, it is important to be as specific as possible while answering this question. I guess this answer also changes, because we also change and grow. It is very powerful to ask yourself from time to time «What do I want?»... in life, in all different areas of my life... Maybe I can inspire you to thinkg about this question as I am doing...🤗❤️ . . . #inspire #love #life #dreams #whatdoiwant #question #thinking #reflecting #journaling #newday #opportunity #powerful #specific #change #growth #spirit #soul #universe #nofilter
