For me this #MondayMotivation isn’t just about a physical appearance, but a transformation journey I have been making mentally, spiritually, and emotionally as well. Looks are skin deep because anybody can play dress up and be “pretty” but the mind and soul carries so much power.
Are you looking to become the best version of yourself?
I am looking to connect with motivated, driven, passionate like minded people with loads of grit ,determination, and looking to become better versions of themselves physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and financially. If that's you...Comment with the 🙌🏾 emoji below

Meathook re unlocked. This week I have been getting back control of my body starting with big improvements in my voice and swallow, and some noticeable improvements in my right arm strength at the shoulder. I’m still weak as a kitten in some movements; I can’t skin the cat, do a push up on my knees and still struggle gripping and opening things with my hand; but I am celebrating my abilities. We all take things for granted. 7 weeks ago I was told I may have to have a tube put in so I could eat. 😱
STRENGTH over FEAR...
FEAR will always keep us small and prevent us from growing.
By finding our strength and embracing challenges we give ourselves the gift of growing both mentally and physically. Our growth gives us more STRENGTH.
When we are operating from FEAR we are often stressed, anxious ....
We react and make decisions based on someone or something else.
We tend to 'force' things to happen and become busy being busy, over going with the flow and focusing on things that are truly important.
We get hung up on the details and loose sight of the grander intention of why we are doing it in the first place.
When we operate from a place of STRENGTH...
We are more focused, calm and clear in our thinking. This provides the foundation from making intelligent decisions and healthy choices with a clear intension or outcome in mind.
We operate in alignment with our own values and are not easily reactive or persuaded by the thoughts or opinions of others.
We communicate clearly and with certainty, we listen and our presence make others feel at ease.
Q. What choices/decisions are you making from FEAR?
Q. What choices/decisions are you making from a place of STRENGTH?
Q. How are each of those decisions working out for you?
Q. Need help to stop fighting with fear and operate from a place of true strength?
A. Book a discovery call to find out how hypnotherapy and coaching can help to unlock the strength you never new you had.

It has happened and it won't be the last time. Job losses are undeniable fits in the category of "worst thing to ever happen" unless its turned into learning and growth opportunity.
To maintain a healthy mental balance:
Focus on what you can control
Enjoy activities that give your life meaning
List your positives
Create a job search plan
Find new routines and stick with it
Get plenty sleep
Try relaxation exercises
Reduce sugar and refined carbs
Eat more Omega-3 fatty acids .
Avoid nicotine .
Avoid overindulgence with alchol
Stay away from foods that affect your mood
Avoid beating yourself up
Face your feelings
Understand your reality
Keep open communication with your family
Reassure your children
Network for employment
Give yourself time to adjist

I gotta say though.....to walk with my daughters on their very first mainstream runway was pretty surreal and totally unexpected. And to have @m.o.b.i.l.i.z.e as the designer was just 🤯🤯🤯
Seemed like it happened for a reason. These two ladies and I have been through so many trials and tribulations in the last almost 16yrs and through it all, it was always just the three of us that held each other up when the nights were dark, silent or lonely. We are known as Katz & her Kittenz.....well they are #Feirce#Strong#Indigenous#Intelligent#Resilient#Lionesses now!!! This moment has grounded me big time.

Words and videos don't and can't do it justice, but the energy during these Open WODs is incomparable! Open WOD 19.4 was incredibly tough, with three explosive full-body movements: snatches, burpees, and pull-ups (or bar muscle ups for Aidan)! One more Open WOD to go! Let's gooooooo! 💪🏾🤓
12 burpee over bar
Then mandatory 3 min rest.
10 pull-ups/bar muscle ups
12 burpee over bar
There will be seasons when you will rely deeply on grace to carry you. Your flesh and your heart will fail but God remains your portion forever! Thankful for this incredible honor tonight. Even more, grateful for a God who continues to remind me that I am worthy and that I am His. She’s back! 💛 #daughtersandvessels

My brick walls continue to help me find the true me & the path I'm supposed to be on ❤ Love and embrace the journey. You're exactly where you are meant to be.
Cuando hablamos de #amorpropio muchas veces nos imaginamos frente a un espejo diciéndonos "te amo" o que guapetón amanecí, sin embargo las palabras no siempre son congruentes con las acciones.
Amor propio es tomar decisiones todos los días del resto de nuestras vidas para ser felices. Tan fácil como cuando a un niño le ofreces helado de ron con pasas (ya se que habrá uno que otro que si le guste, pero vamos que niño escoge ron con pasas sobre chocolate, menta con chispas, algodón de azúcar, chicle?). Se supone que el #helado hace felices a todo el mundo no? Pero aún así el niño decide decir que #no y pasar de él. Es helado, pero prefiere no tomarlo, porque no le hace feliz.
Cada vez que te sientas presionado por tomar una decisión que en tu interior no hace #brillibrilli mejor pasa de ella. Se feliz contigo mismo y verás que pronto tu camino al amor propio irá que vuela.
In ‘The Lonely Diplomat: on home’, we learned that for diplomats, home is more than a single place where we were raised. Home can be a place, a person, some people or a thing. Above all, home is a feeling. .
So as we enter the weekend, I invite you to take a moment to pause, close your eyes and take a deep breath. Feel that feeling that we get when we’re home. It’s that feeling that we are seen, we are heard, we are loved, we belong and we have a purpose. .
We can do great things when we have this feeling, but sometimes we may need reminding that it’s there. .
Don’t know what I’m talking about? Go read the blog at www.thelonelydiplomat.com/blog (or follow the link in my bio). .
Thank you for your support this week. Enjoy your weekends. .
Smiling through the pain cause our milkshake melted 🤦🏽♀️ #resilient

I want to thank everyone who has checked up on me in the last few weeks and who have been worried about me. To be honest, I'm a little worried about me too. Yes, I am incredibly stressed about some situations in my job. But there are a few lessons that really got driven home for me this week. 1. If I am to the point where I'm crying daily and having a hard time being optimistic, it's time to change something -- it takes me back to a time in my life I'm not willing to relive. 2. There is NOTHING at all in this world worth disrupting the relationship I have with myself -- the one I've worked for years to have. And 3. I hold more power than even I realized. And it's time to use it. I'll be ok peeps, it just may get a little quiet for a while. 🤙

"Animals in the wild recover spontaneously from the immobilized state; involuntary movements, changes in breathing patterns, yawning, shaking, and trembling, release or discharge the intense biological arousal; these phenomena have been observed repeatedly by Peter Levine over 45 years of clinical experience, and confirmed through numerous anecdotal accounts by those who work professionally with wild animals; In humans, a variety of factors can thwart this ‘resetting’ of the nervous system: fear of the discharge process itself, prolongation of the traumatic situation, complex cognitive and psycho-social considerations, cortical interference. This failure to reset leaves the nervous system stuck in a dysregulated state. It is when the spontaneous ‘reset’ fails that we see lasting post-traumatic symptoms.”
April is month of the military child. Let’s celebrate our little, resilient travelers!! I’m offering ‘from all over, military child’ purple Bella+Canvas or Rabbit Skins tees and onesies. (brand depends on size)
All tees and onesies are $15, plus tax if applicable. Shipping is $3 or local pickup. I will be placing an order for shirts on Wednesday, 3/27. Payment required upon placing order.
Almost every day someone asks me, "Why would you write books about what NOT to do?"
Well, I'm a fan of working smarter, not harder.
It only takes one bad habit to hold you back. No matter how many good habits you have, one counterproductive bad habit will keep you stuck.
Some bad habits are mental--like feeling sorry for yourself. Others involve behavior--like giving up after your first failure.
But no matter who you are, you likely have at least one bad habit that drags you down.
When you give up the things that are holding you back, your good habits will become much more effective. #Mentallystrong
HOW YOU SEE YOURSELF
My wish for you is that you see yourself as the people who love you most see you…
😂Funny as hell
Or a million other things. Just a reminder that you are worthy…
Worthy of being seen.
Worthy of taking up space.
Worthy without conditions.
Leave me one emoji from the list above that describes you in the comments below.

Accurate, yet I also know how ridiculous it is. Without someone knowing you, why should they be willing to the extra mile? And so, here we are.
Still feels as raw as it did when it unfolded before our eyes last Friday. We haven't had the heart to share the work we were hoping to last week. That can wait.
To our Muslim Whānau,
We love you.
We are sorry this happened to you. We hope we can help you through your grief.
We hope you feel our love.

Last day with our featured teacher, Ms. Nunez...
Ms. Nunez was an active student in elementary school. She was always curious and explored a lot. History was one of her favorite subjects. She loves listening to music especially when she was a kid. “Whenever I got grounded they took my music or boom box from me”!
In her spare time, Ms. Nunez likes to hangout with her friends and venture around San Francisco. She loves to cook, organize things and spend time with her nieces. Her favorite color is green. Ms. Nunez also mentors after-school and loves giving her time to help other students. She is always seeking others to become mentors as well. So if you are interested, let us know if you want to be a Mentor for a student at Cobb. We would love to help you with the process...
This is what Ms. Melocoton had to say about Ms. Nunez, “She goes above and beyond for her students. Ms. Nunez is tough and honest with her students because she knows their full potential and holds them accountable for their actions. This is the reason her students love her, because she genuinely cares about them! They have grown so much this year and it’s all because of her.” #cobbelementary#featuredteacher#5thgrade#sfusd#wearesfusd#strong#experiences#resilient#flashback#oldpics#whentheywerestudents#becomeamentor#mentorforsuccess#gettoknowourteachers
