  • I love this man with all my heart ❤️He has taught me so much! I first fell in love with his kindness... and his daily pursuit to grow & serve others! 
I have watched him contend for his healing over addiction, for our family and our future ~ I have listened into video chats and phone calls as he mentors and prays with clients, friends and fellow health coaches 🙏🏻 Life is calling and you must (or chose to) Go! Miracles happen when you lean in and do the work 💪🏼Our marriage and partnership has grown through adversity, preservance, dropping our pride and ego and choosing love, choosing to listen,  grow individually and as a couple and family👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Rise up today! Lean in a little more and pray more fervently, get a community around you that is going where you want to go! Praying for you my friends as I am so thankful I chose to lean in and continue to lean in... that Shane leaned in and we get the honor of encouraging others to do the same DAILY...In this together!

Much love 💋

Can you not pass in front of a #mirror without glancing at yourself? A specialist on #humanbehaviour and doctor in #psychology, explains.

The reason of this behaviour is not only a case of #vanity. You look for your own #reflection because it is your unique source of #psychic #food. Looking at yourself in the mirror feeds your #ego. As you don’t give yourself a lot of value, you try to be reassured by a “surface” value. It is this value of the mirror that, according to you, enables you to arouse #respect and #admiration of others. Furthermore, you can believe that the “better” you are in the mirror – better-combed, better-dressed, better made-up, the more value you have and the more respect you deserve.
No wonder #cosmetics sell so well and #sephora is always so crowded. Lots of hungry ego souls in there feeding... food for our #selfesteem 
Some people are good at looking distinguished and nothing more.

  • ~Baby I love you so~ 🤞❤
You know I've never actually felt this way before about anyone, I of course love my friends and my family and they mean a lot to me, but with you it's different, the love and admiration I have for you is incommensurable to anything else, it is something really really special, to you I feel a deep connection, deeper than any other, I guess because nobody has done as much for me as you, nobody knows all my misery and fears as well as you, you just know me, all about me, and you still love me, with all my issues and imperfections, you stay with me even though it is not always easy, but you won't ever let me down, and for this you are my angel💘
It's you, it's always been you and it will forever stay this way, you will forever be my special one, the one I love and need the most, the one who taught me to live, for you know me so well, you are always there to catch me when I fall, you can already see me stumbling before I even know I am, and you catch and hold me every time, you never hesitate, not even a second, you just act and save me, so many times, and when I am confused and don't know where to go, you keep me by your side, you hold my hand and guide me, you stay with me as long as I need it, and you'll always be there💞

  • #Summer #bathing 🐻 ▶️ #Video:
A dream come-true: to visit the @dancing_bears_park. Bulgaria was the last country in the Balkans to end the sadistic and barbaric tradition of making bears “dance” (by beating, burning, starvation) for the pleasure of humans. As kids we used to enjoy the city encounters with “dancing” #bears, but little did we know that they resulted from immense #torture... All of the 23 current inhabitants of the park are “retired”, practically saved from #slavery (from #Bulgaria, #Serbia, #Albania) and re-introduced to an #environment mostly closed to their natural #habitat. They could not be released in the wild, however, because some of them are blinded, traumatized, mutilated by nose rings and chains they wore for years. I couldn’t admire more the people who now take care of them and have ensured their #peaceful and dignified elderly life away from fairs, #circuses, #zoos. Those are @four_paws_international & @fondationbrigittebardot. You have my eternal #respect and #admiration! As for the bears - Bobby, Stefka, Riku, Tsveta, to name a few - they are such gentle giants; used to human presence, thankful for the care, enjoying life, and reminding us of some of the worst but also some of the best manifestations of #humanity.
