My 4 legged gal.... Best camping dog!
Hot coffee not created between bug coils and 1000s of biting mosquitoes, black flies, deer flies, horse flies the size of a 50 cent piece and a view of the lake.... Um... Cafe, it is not as good as mine Apparently the longer we were camping, the taller my hair became.
Today I got in my head . . I allowed a feeling to become a thought and attach itself to a story that was not serving me. . . A story that was not true, but one I used to beat myself up with, to use as "evidence" against what I want to do. I let that feeling have it's time, but before it burrowed DEEP into an old belief, I was able to change the narrative. Move to a different feeling. . . . I realized that story, that belief was not serving me. I opened myself to endless possibilities and new stories. . . I am a baby duck rescuer. . . I choose to come from love. It is such a stronger stand and I think creates a better story! . . . You have the choice to allow feelings to become dark unproductive thoughts and action.... OR worse fearful non action.
Imagine operating from a place of love. . . No judgement. . . No self deprecating actions and beliefs. . . Not allowing the fearful "what if" or "I am not them" or "I am not ready" to direct your day. . . Your only goal is to be in this moment. The only moment we have. To create from love . . I choose love over fear. . . Thank you Gary 🙏♥️
Sometimes you got to visualize and sometimes you have to just be in the visualization! ! There is something about an @airstream_inc rv. Call it a dream. Call it a lifestyle. Call it I love there are no slide outs and represents a piece of history. . Today I picked out the style, the color, what needs to be customize. It was amazing and felt like it will happen. . Have you taken a vision one step further by sitting in your dream rv, going to an open house in your dream neighborhood or test driving a dream car? . The only thing stopping you is you!!!
What a great quote and perspective hanging on my daughter's wall ♥️ . . We must remember the past, but not live there . . Do you ever find yourself stuck in old stories, fears, memories, and thoughts? . . Stop. That is the past. . . True it helped get you here. . . To this moment. . . But you are here in THIS moment. You can create so much in this moment. . . If you forget, remember the past is a foreign country that speak differently. 😉♥️
Ever thought you were on the the edge of something amazing... . Today when I doubted my path for just a few minutes I got a text from an acquaintance. A man I hope one day to meet ..... . He sent me this text out of the blue. "Enjoy the process of your search without succumbing to the pressure of the result. Trust your gut, keep throwing darts at the dartboard. Don’t listen to the critics and you will figure it out." Will Ferrell, USC commencement speech to the Class of 2017 . Yep!🎯🎯🎯 . Throwing darts not spaghetti because a dart is going to stick and this girl will be dancing. . How do you keep pushing or throwing darts?
The obstacle is the path.
Accepted and love those quirks.... The chalkboard was calling me while I was reading.... Alien or Sandy the Squirrel from SpongeBob?
Right to the point! . You are WHO you are and instead of trying to fit in - Stand Out! . I have seen this numerous places this week and as I read Sandi's book this theme of standing out. Our differences are the gems others are seeking. . How do you embrace your quirks? Ah... My next post might tell you a bit about me...
The 75th Anniversary of D-Day. A time when a collobration was created to defeat an evil. . Politics aside, THANK YOU to ALL service men and women who have served. . May this be the last world war. . Artwork from a family relative's book telling of his experience 75 years ago.
Sometime you just need to laugh. I can not remember what got the giggles started. . Of course I was NOT going to post this picture. But then WHY NOT? . This is ME. This is JENN doing what she does best..... being herself. . Are there times when someone witnesses you being so real and so you? What do you do? . In today's world, what do you do if someone captures you in an image? Own it! . Anyone else ready to laugh?
It is soooo easy to say I am a different person with a wig and a camera filter. . I would even say I feel and act different. As we all know, I am not different. With the wig, i am giving myself permission to BE different. . What if I just was who I wanted to be.... No filters, no masks, and no wigs? . However I do love these curls. . Do you have any masks or filters you like to wear? Ones that give you more freedom to be a different version of you?
I am so glad I can entertain myself! I could have sat in a chair and stared at my phone. . . Why? . . Life is too short. Have FUN! Try on funky glasses. Sing with the radio in the waiting room. . . Today I cracked myself up and wanted to share my laughing at myself. . . Would you let go and have fun? What makes you laugh?
Thank you to those men and women that serve/served our country . . I am grateful for your service. My family honors you and your family. . . We remember you. Thank you.
NOW! It is Friday of a holiday weekend.... . . I thought I can go for a jog tomorrow... . . I could start clean eating again on Monday... No Tuesday.... Wait June is around the corner.... . . NOPE - NOW. . . Waiting can be a form of procrastination. We give ourselves permission to accept excuses. . . I am not perfect, but my puppy and I did NOT wait for Tuesday or June to get back to what got me where I was in January - and ready for next fall race. . . Is there something you are waiting on starting next week or next month but you could take some action on it now?
Oh Boy! Have you ever noticed that we can get upset / hot under the collar / angry when someone gives us feedback? . Why? . If it is from a trusted source, we may be triggered because we KNOW what they told us is TRUE. . For me this week, a friend called me out on my behavior 😲 for NOT taking that leap of faith that I encourage others to do. . It stung. This friend saw through my stories and called me out on it. I went from ...... WHY am I BEING criticized for this..... TO..... You are correct. Thank you for pointing that out and calling me on it. . For me being OPEN to what this friend told me, has allowed me to see other areas where I THOUGHT I was taking a huge leap and it was more of a baby skip. 😁😉 . True both are movement forward, but I have things I want to do in this life that baby skips are not going to cut it. In hindsight, I knew I was lollygagging around the idea. I was mad at my friend for pointing out MY lack of action. 🙄♥️ . Can you think of a time when you took feedback as personal criticism? Why did you feel that way?
It was wet out but I got some GREAT thinking done with my buddy on my fast walk in the rain . Is there something that stops you from doing exercise? We saw NO ONE else and it was Devine. Just the two of us BEING present with each other. Love you 🐕!
