My ride to “work” this morning 💗 🚲 . Bit of autumnal dew, bit warm sun, a lot of enjoying cycling, super happy to be going to the Magical Space!! 🧚🏼♀️ . I used to have a company car, company computer and cell, long hours and a good job (really was) but it was slowly slipping out of aligninment with my soul . I began to feel distant from it, not resonating truely with the people I was working with .. the "tribe" . Now I have a my own bicycle, my own computer, my own phone and my own hours and surrounded by high vibe dudes and dudettes!! . My new tribe. . I made conscious choices to ⚡️step into a new spaces ⚡️say yes to me ⚡️follow what I was passionate about and explore/jump into the opportunities that aligned with me being the best version of myself . It’s never too late 💕
We did a thing today 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 Girl time and laughter is exactly what I needed to end the weekend. These fabulous women are gearing up for the Snax Style Event and I am thrilled to be a part of this project. Raising up women to be confident, empowered, and in community and have some fun shopping and talking style at the same time!??? Um heck yes. Event details and tickets below friends. Hope you can come ❤️ https://www.theemeraldaz.com/events-1/style-snax-event
THERE IS AN END TO... 📍Beating yourself up for not seeing the result of your hard work manifest through sales 📍Sacrificing your values and working with less-than-ideal clients just to get some income in 📍Hiding and always trying to scream the loudest in the sea of people doing the same thing ⠀⠀ There is an end to all that. ⠀⠀ And if you were like me years ago: Left-brained, strategic, very logical... Always relying on the systems I build to make it through... You'll be very disappointed. That's just 20% of the equation. ⚙️ ⠀⠀ If you want to be a magnet to ideal clients who love working with you and paying you with ease... If you want to touch people with your message in a powerful way... You need the remaining 80%: ENERGETICS. ⚡️ Energetics is the way you see and carry yourself every step of the way. It's how you create exacting standards to what you want to experience. It's about enforcing strong boundaries and only being available to what you truly want -- no compromises, no negotiations, no "only this time". ⠀⠀ It's about how you take your power back from past pains and from situations that trigger you. It's about honoring your genius and working with people do the same thing through paying you so easily. It's about being creative on how you reach out and take action, basically doing your part in co-creation. ⠀⠀ It's about how you play with energy to call in, in the most magical and random way, the people who would either work with you or give you exposure in the online space so more of your people will gravitate towards you. ⠀⠀ Learn how to work with both to achieve 100% magnetism and begin living in ease with your business. ⠀⠀ I'm opening up slots for my ELECTRIC & MAGNETIC 1:1 program. We start on April. ⠀⠀ This is what you've been waiting for. ⠀⠀ You deserve to stand for what you want. CLAIM IT. ⚡️

If being born with 4 fingers isn't stopping Darrius from playing such beautiful music what is stopping you from creating the life you desire? #repost @stevetvshow • • • • • Darrius Simmons may have only been born with four fingers - but that’s not stopping him from creating some of the most impressive music ever. #stevetvshow @drippy_2x_29
Who’s the psychopath that wakes up at 4am to go to the gym? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Oh yeah, that’s me 🤣 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m sooo tired today but coffee is getting me through ☕️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 〰️ Feeling more productive than ever! This week is going to be a good week 〰️
I don’t know why we make such a huge deal about what people will think. Surely they will think what WE think, that our work role needs to change to suit the various stages of our lives. What I needed from my work when I was a new grad was different to what I needed as a traveller, and that was to different to what I need as a parent to small but wild children! I evolve my work to suit my life, not my life to suit my work.
This is a theatre. A new space for me, but not really. All theatres are my home. It is where I laughed, cried, kissed (boys,girls or inanimate objects depending on the scenario or scene), danced, partied, slept, grieved, fell apart, fell in love (boys, girls, or inanimate objects depending on the scenario or scene), struggled, flew, contorted, forgot, astounded. I leave and always come back because I am always safe in a theatre. There is always someone there who understands and recognizes me. It is my home. ❤️🎭 #theatre#actress#actresslife#creativeentrepreneur#audition#theatrelife#blackactress
In less than a week I’m going to share a space with some super talented Long Beach makers and creatives.

I’ve made so many new friends with other artists, creatives, and local businesses. I’m so I love with my new city.
🍇ЗАЧЕМ МНЕ ИНСТАГРАМ?🍇 ______________________________________ How is your weekend? Good snowball fell? Right real spring! When will be the sun? ______________________________________ Привет солнышки☀️ Хорошо нас «порадовала» погода? «Снежка уже нет».. «Тепло».. Мммм🥴 Ну сегодня не об этом. Зачем же мне нужен Инстаграм? Впервые когда я зарегестрировались в нём мне было 14 лет, получается год 2016🗓 Я сначала не понимала, зачем он нужен и выкладывала всякую фигню. То фото ежедневные по несколько штук, видео, как допустим гуляю.. Ну думаю, когда многие зарегестрировались тоже такое выкладывали🙈 Сейчас я выклалываю фото 3 раза в неделю и считаю это нормой(для тех, кто ведёт Блог) Инстаграм был для меня сначала можно сказать ничем, потом фото стали более интереснее и я немного понимала чуть Инстаграма, а теперь это для меня, как хобби💁🏼♀️ Я не понимаю тех людей, кто в нем зарегестрируется и ничего не делает. Фото не выкладывает, истории не добавляет. Зачем он тебе тогда нужен, если ты ничего не делаешь? Если зарегестрировался(-лась), ну делай хоть что-то.. А просто смотреть на личную жизнь других можно и без соц сетей😸👌🏻 #creativeentrepreneur#lovelysquares#contentcreator
Heavy is the Head that wears the crown👑 ________________________________________ I hear their criticism loud and clear That is how I know that the time is near. So we become alive in a time of fear And I ain't got no motherfucking time to spare. Cry my eyes out for days upon days Such a heavy burden placed upon me But when you go hard your nays become yays
Congratulations to Arlete & Chris! Their day was so full of joy, love, and many touching moments! Are there any other Disney “Up” fans out there? After these two college sweethearts were pronounced husband and wife, they walked up the aisle to “Married Life,” Carl & Ellie’s theme song. 😭💞 I truly had an amazing time documenting their special day. I have to give it up to all of the amazing vendors that helped to make everything perfect and seamless. We have incredible jobs working for incredible people like Chris and @arletehl.xo ! . . . . . . . . . .

I love curating mementos. This particular cabinet in my kitchen houses my grandmother’s vintage Christmas ornaments, my mom’s bridal portrait, my baby shoes, my dad’s baby boots, my dad’s brass shoe horn, my parents’ vintage cocktail glasses, my Grandpa’s vintage cocktail shakers, my wedding cake topper, and a set of vintage martini glasses that my late brother gifted me years ago. So many treasures that bring a smile, and remind me of their memories, on the daily. ❤️#ihavethisthingwithnostalgia #nostalgicmoments
🏔 I was scared shitless of my own power 🏔 I almost talked myself out of Attraction Marketing . I almost worried about what others thought more than deciding to own my unique personal power. I used to think being a leader meant I had to be a loud in your face sorta person , revving people up , saying profound sentences, it felt like too much hype for me , felt like I always had to be something that I wasn’t . That’s only because I was comparing myself to others . It’s only because I didn’t value the gifts that I already had . That’s because I was still shaky in my truth. And I was scared to show up as truly me , I didn’t feel like it would be enough . This trip is allowing me to be in a space of appreciation to how far I have come this last year. The journey of pregnancy , birth , motherhood and business has shown me my incredible nurturing yet fierce power . A power that I had always tried to run away from . One that I had always tried to change to fit what I thought “it should look like “ . Yeah I read the books , did the healings , knew the shit but now it feels different . It feels like a big weight of the shoulders . It feels like I can finally relax and be the person I came here to be . It feels like my roots are deeply planted in the earth , weaving and communicating . And now with this knowing I move forward with a clear view that what I am building and creating through business/ life is from my souls calling . Through my expressing from this place , my people will come to me and we will celebrate together , we will show each other where we are still playing the game the old way , we will collaborate, we will play , we will be inspired by each other’s gifts . The people who come to me are wanting to know more because their soul is nudging the towards someone who took a leap , who made a decision to no longer fear their unique power . If you are feeling the call , please reach out . Connect . Ask questions . Feel it
