“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go DO IT. The world needs people who have come alive.” Not gonna lie, felt pretty alive while #Sketchnoting LIVE today during Kim, Tammy, & @manuelherrera33 session: Visual Thinking Explained: Erasing Misconceptions #gratitudesnap#ISTE19
As a first-time bridesmaid, my heart is bursting🥰😘So thankful to share this beautiful journey with you @gabrielaescalonaa!! May you always choose to say “I Do” to a life that fills your heart to the brim and challenges you to your core. Choose to say “I do” to a life that makes you grow when you want to settle and inspires uncontrollable laughter, heart-wrenching pain, unparalleled passion, and meaning beyond your wildest imagination... may you always choose to say “I do” to the man that will build this beautiful life with you, and choose you everyday, for the rest of your lives. @david_bello84 #losbellomasbellos#losadoro#weddingprep
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, papas, daddys, & knights in shining armor.
Those of you who know mine, know that I hit the jackpot...
▪️I got a dad who would bring me the moon if I asked (or even if I didn’t ask). ◾️He tired to get me to meditate since before I was 10 if that didn’t work, he’d make me laugh until I got over whatever it was that shook me to my core.
◾️the one who showed up at all our special events...and even not so special ones, always fully present, always proud, and always making us feel like nothing was more important than our time together.
◾️the one who always talked me through trials and challenges reminding me that challenges will be constant in life, but how we deal with it will make the difference
◾️the dad who has helped me build my dreams (literally building things for me all the time from doll houses to our actual houses (@cukipuki) or asking me questions about the dreams I’m building in my head—since I have recollection of memories). ◾️the dad everyone can count on (especially friends who need to move, remodel😂)
▪️being the most talented and first artist I ever met...and being the first person to put a pencil in my hand and tell me I can create anything I put my mind to.
Thank you daddy for always bringing laughter, reflection, love into my life and now Nico’s too! Gracias por todo, simepre🙏🏼☺️

Race: @footworksmiami Twilight 5k
Team: Nico, Stivi & @brettatwood24
Significance: Nico’s first 5k (running) #proudmama
From the moment I found out Nico was my human to raise, I have thought of the impact the moment in front of me would have on the the bigger picture of his life; always thinking 💭 about the type of person he is growing up to be and if I am giving him the ⚒ tools to become his best self. I hope our everyday convos and experiences we live together now are getting filed in a special folder 📁 he will lovingly refer to when needed later in life... or maybe bust open with a therapist 😂who knows, right?!🤷🏼♀️
The “no-manual included” approach to motherhood is something else, I tell ya😳...but I’m tackling it one step at a time....just like Nico did this 5k🙌🏼. This memory was filed 📁under “Moments I never want to forget” 😘

Happy #globalrunningday2019 🏃🏻♀️
So thankful for a pain-free (& Claire-paced ❤️)run 🏃🏽♀️today. For the great majority of my life I have run (going on 27 years😳). I had been🍀fortunate, that most of those years were pain free, but I never really developed good stretching habits before or after my workouts🤦🏼♀️. Now, at my “next stage” of life😂...and having undergone a few bumps & bruises, my body is starting to call me out📢, tighten up, and make runs a not so effortless nor enjoyable experience. BUT, that’s already changing🙌🏼. I share this becase if we don’t put in the right work (physically and emotionally), it all catches up—eventually🤷🏼♀️, so let’s #dothework .
“Covering less than one percent of the ocean floor, coral reefs support an estimated 25 percent of all known marine species. And the variety of species living on coral reefs is greater than almost anywhere else in the world. Scientists estimate that more than one million species of plants and animals are associated with coral reef ecosystems.” - #NOAA
If you (or someone you know) is involved with #coralreefresoration projects, I’d love to 🔌connect this summer👋🏼

“When muscles are overloaded, little tears are made in the muscle itself. This microtrauma may sound harmful but is in fact the natural response of your muscles when they experience work. The muscle repairs these tears when you're resting, and this helps muscles grow in size and strength.” The ❤️heart is a muscle. It makes sense that we must experience tears in order for our hearts to grow in size&strength.
I’m obviously thankful for these beautiful moments pictured...but today I’m working on also being thankful for the 😭🤕🧐😤😡🥵🤯🤬😞😫😖😬😲moments not pictured where growth is hopefully happening🙏🏼
