#authenticliving

Instead of waking up 5:30, and hurrying about putting on make up and all the other stuff, I've learned to wake up without hurry and enjoy my morning, and when it's morning and there's still sleep dust in your eyes, every minute counts. ✨ These small moments are what make me happy, and incredibly thankful about life. ☕️

We love this from the wonderful @brenebrown - to be truly compassionate we must be honest and be authentic with the way we are.

😂 back to the 2016. I love google disk! It saves everything! Sometimes I go back a year or two, that's so amazing to see how the boys are changing and growing! I thought I would never repeat the same scenes, but for this shot I would love to do it! Can you imagine how funny it will be when they turns 25 😂

My love for crittall doors just keeps getting stronger especially when they looks like this.
The use of the space, brick work, the blend of country cabinets & industrial chairs-the outside space that is a perfect extension of the house - this is perfectly styled & staged.

You, are a completely unique, miracle of a being, but you already know that, don’t you? Maybe not today, or maybe you did yesterday but can’t remember tomorrow... deep within you though, you know, you have a knowing that you are an absolutely exquisite being.
And it’s okay to not know or to forget, because we’ll know and we’ll remind you until you remember.
But you are, always will be, uniquely you and that is wonderful, isn’t it?

External validation.
In a perfect world we wouldn’t need it, and in this world we certainly shouldn’t rely on it; but the reality of it is, as humans, we do need a sprinkle of it every now and then. It’s the spoon full of sugar that helps us take the stuff it’s hard to swallow.
The society we grew up in has conditioned us to judge and shame us and others. A lot of us are taking back the power and recognising our own personal power and beauty, giving ourselves love and validation.
I think in that process of coming into our own personal power, finding opportunities where we can tell our close friends or even strangers how wonderful they are, how beautiful they are, how brave they are is a very important element...
To remind them that they know this themselves. Remind them of their personal power, because it’s easy to forget in a world of external and internal judgement and shame.
It works in such a funny way, sometimes if your own well is not full or taken care of it can be difficult to give that to others, but sometimes when you’re feeling dry giving that to others can be a part of your healing, filling up your own well.

Think pink on a Tuesday. This is the only pair left of these studearrings and what better to brighten your day or somebody elses? This is the last week to purchase before the holidays. DM to buy from here and I will send postage free throughout this week. After which I will fall through the rabbit hole on Monday the 18th Dec and be back mid Jan. On Saturday 16th Dec I am doing a popup at @sticksparetdesignbutik from 12-16 and on Sunday the 17th I am doing a X-mas market at Scandic Malmen so hope to see you at one of these events. The people I’ve met and the stories I’ve heard this year has really given me so much energy and happiness and I am truly grateful for that. #madebyessmoo#maker#colourfuljewellery #färggladasmycken #smycken #jewelry#madeinstockholm #madeinsweden #manblirglad #modernvintage #retrostyle#smallbusiness#wildatheart #goodvibes #ilovemycostumers#mixandmatch #letshavefun #dreambig#stickspåretdesign#maker#workhardplayhard#authenticliving#noregrets#modernhippie

Wow, vorig jaar kregen 59.715 kinderen in Ned een 🎁 en dit jaar maar liefst 77.142 kinderen! Zo mooi dat in deze december maand, met al die feestdagen, ook kinderen die in armoede leven (1 op de 8 in Ned), iets krijgen dankzij @nationaalfondskinderhulp & alle donateurs!👌🏻🙏🏼 #elkaarhelpen #krachtenbundelen #iederkindverdienteencadeau

I quit my full-time career in social work 10 days ago, and watching this killer footage my mama recorded of an act this weekend at Edward's annual fabulous & famous partayyyy, makes me know it was the right decision! I've never laughed, smiled and grinned so much in one song (yup you may even catch a good 😉 in there). I loved helping foster youth in our community, but I realize I have to live my own dreams and inspire others to do the same- to grow stronger, love their bodies, find their creativity, flow and grow. I have to live my own dreams, or else I'm doing a great disservice to myself and not taking my own advice that I live and breathe by! I found my calling for now, and I'm sticking to it! In the meantime I'm hoping to build the bridge between community, Ohana, and my love for aerial dance. I don't exactly know how or when that will materialize but it's in the works- the smile on my face and the inkling in my soul. ✨🌹💜☯️✨🌙🌟✨

I had someone ask earlier why I’m working in tech and pursuing a degree in medical coding when I have talent in writing and photography. I was (and still am) flattered. Truly. But right now, I feel like I’m playing dress up. I’m still getting to know the creative being that I never knew I was. I’ve spent my entire life tightly wrapped in practicality, no matter how desirable my daydreams about a more free flowing life were. I’ve also always been terrified to express the creative side publicly, because, rejection, yo.
All I know is that right now, the sensible side of me is going to finish the degree I started and move on to that. I don’t know if photography and poetry will just continue to be the loves of my life and my therapeutic release, or if they’ll take on a bigger role. Right now, they’re both very sacred to me. They’re FOR me. And that is enough.
I’ve taken the step to be brave enough to start posting my photography under my own IG account. My writing may be the next thing I decide to share with the world. I don’t need to do either for “a living”. Not when they are both what make me feel alive, which is a payoff that is immeasurable.

It’s normal to want to celebrate and share happy moments. We don’t often want to share the dark and scary times. It can be shameful. Especially when we don’t quite understand what were going through.
I deal with anxiety, depression, ptsd, and grief. Sometimes I’m doing really well and it hardly affects me. Other times, something, often really small will hit me and completely, out of the blue, and knock me off my feet. I feel like I’m drowning in a sea of uncertainty and doubt. It’s terrifying. I can hardly breathe, move, see, think, or hear anything. My desperate grasps for life become weaker and smaller until I stop seeing an possibility of breaking free from the terror. I curl up into myself just trying to catch my breath and feel my own body again. Slowly, after fighting, with a lot of patients and self compassion, I start to find my way out of the darkness. Sometimes it take me a night, sometimes it takes a couple of weeks, and other times its months of uncertainty and ghosts from my past coming up over and over again. I’m thankful for when I finally do see that light again, I start to recognize small glimpses of normalcy and happiness. I can breathe and get back to pushing towards my normal, everyday and even really big goals.
I’m saying all this as a reminder that it’s okay to fall down and that you can get back up. Also to anyone who looks at Instagram and only sees happy, perfect moments. There’s nothing wrong with sharing exciting moments, but know that it’s okay to have bad days too.
I heard once that “flowers don’t grow all year round.” I love that because flowers are beautiful and perfect. However, they too must push through the darkness of the ground to reach the light. They fall, wither, die, and then grow new again. It’s apart of life. I think without going through the difficult and terrifying moments(where I feel like I’m losing my mind), I would actually lose my mind and myself. It keeps me grounded. It’s often in traveling and in nature when I truly find myself, peace, and clarity. Seeing this path and field a few weeks ago was one of those beautiful moments for me.🌸Also, I’m thankful for the people who are patient with me and support me❤️

slowing d o w n. we're embracing the careful unfolding of that holiday feeling. there's a trickle of to-do's that still needs some doing, but for now, it's deep breaths, slower starts, lingering longer.⠀

🎊 I want to congratulate my LITTLE BROTHER for his HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION this weekend. Time flies, he's still a baby having his first days at school for me while in reality he's out of school already, and soon will be my daughter 😅😊
He has been the only one there graduated with HONOR as you can see, he was the FIRST PLACE + BEST GRADES in the school. We're very proud of him, he's such an intelligent and calm son. My parents had been lucky with him - while his worse grades were 9 (out of 10, in Brazil) mine have been literally 0 😂 My "best" grades haven't been his "worst" ones.
I wish to him from now on a journey just as the one of my man: right, full of success and career opportunities. They're both brilliant and the best men I know, along with my good father. 💖🎉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Parabèns à meu irmãozinho pela sua graduação de Ensino Médio este sábado, com o qual se formou com HONRA com as MELHORES NOTAS + PRIMEIRO LUGAR da escola.
Ele é um garoto muito inteligente e calmo, e o desejo uma vida daqui pra frente como a de meu companheiro, cheia de sucesso e oportunidades de carreira. Eles são brilhantes e homens maravilhosos, assim como meu pai. Estamos muito oegulhosos dele. Meus pais tiveram sorte com ele, enquanto suas piores notas foram 9, as minhas foram 0 😅 Minhas "melhores" não foram suas "piores". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Félicitations a mon frère pour sa graduation ce samedi. Il a eu un hommage pour ses BONNES NOTES + PREMIÈRE PLACE à l'école.
Il est très intelligent et calm, un bon fils. Nous sommes très fiers, je lui souhaite une vie comme a de mom copain, pleine de succès et des opportunités de carrière. Ils sont des hommes merveilleux, comme mon père aussi. 💗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [More on : STORIES - PARTY PICTURES]

Get out for a walk in the wonderful summer sun. Go with a friend and bring some snacks for along the way. It's a great way to connect with others and to connect with yourself too. ☀️
