What selfless act of kindness are you going to provide today? Doing something kind for another knowing that you will not get anything in return other than the warm gooey feeling of knowing you made someone else happy or changed their day around. 💖
Got my #churchflow going this morning with my former student I’ve been #mentoring the past couple years. Sometimes when I wonder why I do what I do, I think about kids whose lives I can actually positively impact. Today we praised, lunched, and baked cookies. She even helped me make #keto brownies alongside Fiona. I’m so excited for this young lady’s bright future to unfold and it feels good to know I have a small role in her life. 💖💕💖 #sundayfunday @unitedchurchde #teachthemwell#leadwithlove#doright
Thanks @gratitude_project ( repost ).. I agree entirely with this. I noticed earlier on today that half of what I was wearing and using came from my friends businesses ( leggings @charbarre - earrings @empress_and_judge - lingerie @harmonicadesign ; candle from @the125collection @val_wray ..) I think thats neato-cool, just saying xxxx
Look at all that we can create when we collaborate 💖✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m the kind of woman who loves her independence and trying to do as much as possible on my own. One of the biggest lessons I’ve had during 2018 is that I will not create all that I’m being called to create without the help of others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And this makes so much sense! Because if we’re operating in our ZOG and aligned with our purpose, then we are going to need the help & support of others to fill in all the gaps (and trust me there will be a lot of them)! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ Which is why during 2019 I am offering my community more opportunities to collaborate. Not just with me, but with each other. I’m also looking forward to connecting, supporting & collaborating with organisations doing amazing, aligned work in the world. When we create together truly magical things happen 💖✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can check out my online group mentorship program for 2019 at: www.leticiaringe.com/activated (25% off early bird offer until this Thursday 13 December). Take a look around who can you collaborate with in 2019? 💖💖💖✨✨✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #createalifethatisbeautiful#collaborationovercompetition#community#activated2019
I heard someone say it's nearly 8 billion people on earth. Yet there are so many feeling isolated, deprived of connection and suffering alone. Even with the advancement of technology, actually probably more so now. We often here "life is hard" and it is but how much easier would it be if we really understood the power of connection, free love, one family and one community. Divide and conquer wins again. SEVEN BILLION PLUS people on earth but how many are frustrated because they can't find ONE soulmate? Just one out here, really? Something just doesn't seem right to me? That wilderness continues to show me the power of connection and I can't ignore it. No slight just expression! #universe#spirituality#leadwithlove #connection#humanity#enlightenment #wakeup#awakening#selfless#isee

What do you see when you look in the mirror? I'm going to be frank! I not only see what I've overcome, an abundance of life, personal accomplishments, I also see death! I left a lot off this mirror. There are times when I look in the mirror and because of resemblance I reflect on what a family member went through. I'm completely okay with this. I understand how this can be a negative at times but I also know when we embrace death we appreciate life! This acknowledgment allows me to use my vessel in ways some can't. I'm sorry but I won't always use proper time management and if you walked in my shoes you probably wouldn't either. Life experiences have me believing time isn't always on our side so it's hard for me to wait on things I can make happen now! It's your birthright to live, just like it's your birthright to die! #enlightenment#mytruth#myjourney #universe#leadwithlove#connection #overcome#awakening#spirituality #warrior#survivor#chronicillness#life #wakeup
On the left was me in July, 2017. I was fat, depressed, angry and all these things made me gain weight no matter what I did. . In the middle was me 1 year later after a 3 or 4 month cut. I lost over 30 pounds. It was after 15 years of trying to loose weight that I FINALLY found a way that worked for me. . On the right, is me today. I stopped the cut. I realized that I was doing for the wrong reasons. I wasn't doing it for me. . . . Somewhere between that middle picture in July and the end of August I decided to search for me. I decided that if anyone was to take interest in me, they needed to see past my weight. I needed to see past my weight. I decided that since I found a way to cut the fat finally, I would do it again if I found a reason to continue for me or for someone who was to see me for who I really am and cared about me and not how I looked. . What 2018 has taught me is that the search for yourself isn't a search with and end result but to find a path. A path with no end but a journey worth living. To value who I am and what I live for. To live for those in my life who also value me and remove those who don't. To put those who love me and need me first and value my contributions to their lives. . . . Right now, I'm no where near perfect. Neither physically or emotionally. But, I AM on that path. I AM proud of who I am and VALUE what I do for others. I love those who show me love and care for everyone, even those who hurt me. There are days and even moments where living feels optional, but then I remember my son and those who rely on me for support of all kinds. These people give me strength. They value me, so I can't disappoint them. . . . . Here's to MY PATH! Here's to MY JOURNEY!! Here's to living for love and living for the future!!!

30 Days of Leading with Love - Day 24 - Joan! Joan was my mother and she was born 91 years ago today. She and my father Don adopted me when I was 3 months old and I became the fourth and youngest child of the Lewis family. She was an accomplished musician and champion of people in need across many spectrums. She always told me I could be anything I wanted to be and I’m grateful for that. She was a complicated woman, though, and needed to follow the beat of her own drum. Being her daughter helped me learn to forgive and accept. ❤️ #leadwithlove. #namaste#adoption#miraclebastardchild#forgiveness#loveandacceptance
Our thoughts continuously fire off ideas and beliefs all the time. You want to make sure you are always trying to move towards what makes you feel good. When you feel good the conscious and unconscious thoughts you think will come from that feeling good place.
Businesses that look out for the greater good are only going to do better. Just look at what Marc Benioff did with @salesforce pushing for the corporate tax to help the homeless. If I ever needed Salesforce I wouldn’t think twice now.

It’s been 13yrs since I’ve been to a non-denominational church. I woke up this morning with the intention to go to my Catholic Church (Holy Spirit) since it’s been since Lent that I’ve been. It’s funny how God works. I walked into the kitchen half-awake and Kelci asked me if I wanted to go to church with her. I’m so glad I did. The message was LOVE, love in the good and the bad. Pastor Andrew reminded us that we do not deserve God’s Grace yet we receive it, therefore we should not condemn others for their wrong doings but to love and honor them as well. Whether it’s Catholic Church or Christian Church, the message is all the same. What a beautiful@way to start a Sunday morning ❤️💚 @thebridgefresno #thankful#hashtagblessed#leadwithlove#loveandhonor
We can not love each other to death, nor can we let hate win. We must lead with love and speak truth in every area and role of our lives - at home, at work and in the community. Thank you for sharing this quote @jessebradley7168 #leadlikejesus#lovewins @graceinauburn #leadwithlove#speaktruth#mercyandgrace
Recovery from an eating disorder/ addiction - being able to enjoy ice-cream with my love without the feelings of guilt, shame and low self-esteem attached. For some ice cream might be an innocent ‘treat’, but for me it had always been an emotional tranquilliser. A friend. Filling a deep void of despair and misery. This may sound dramatic to some, but quite frankly I don’t care, because it’s the truth. And sometimes the truth isn’t pretty. . . I am thankful that I have the skills of self-awareness now to get in touch with how I am feeling, to catch the thoughts in my mind and choose more loving ones in times of internal conflict. So many years of conditioning. So many years of not being shown how to love myself. None of us are. With January coming up I have to remind myself that the only diet I will EVER have in my life from now on is a diet from negative thoughts. This is a prayer I say when I can feel them creep in. Feel free to use it or adapt it if you feel called to: “I choose peace instead of this. Show me how I can be a beacon of light for others. Guide me in the direction of loving thoughts and actions from this moment on. Let me lead with love always. Amen.”
#ownerthoughts ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Balancing life is what’s up for me right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was recently reminded that all is EXACTLY as it should be. For those that don’t know me, I am a mom of two incredible little humans and the owner of Platefit. I am also a friend, a wife, a partner, a boss, a 39 year old woman, an athlete, and so much more! So, how do I “balance” it all? I dont🤪. My dear friend @heidiStevensInc says it well, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Stop striving for balance. You’ll be on a never-ending roller coaster looking for something that doesn’t exist. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Instead of searching for “balance,” I say honor the season you’re in. Sometimes work will require you to give more, or you’ll find yourself more focused on health, or your friends. But trying to set up some perfect schedule giving 110% to every area of your life all the time is exhausting and a recipe for burnout.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sometimes my work is a priority. Sometimes my family is. Sometimes I’m the priority! It’s very rare for my scale to feel balanced and I’m 100% okay with that now. Once I let go of trying to be the a perfect Mama, the perfect Owner/Boss things became easier, lighter, more fun! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are all doing the best we can at any given moment. Remembering that helps me stay sane and pushes me to continue moving forward.
Challenge is an interesting word. Sometimes it’s pushing past boundaries we have previously set or accepted. Other times it’s staying calm in the face of chaos, or standing up, alone, for our beliefs. And other times it’s making space for rest and healing. . 💎 . There is no shortcut, but there is also no shortage of the compassion and respect we need to access and bring to ourselves in order for healing to happen. . 💎 . Here are days 7, 8 and 9 of #aloforearmsfordays. My strained shoulder does not permit forearm balancing, so I’m showing an exercise you can do in dolphin pose to prepare for #pinchamayurasana. Alternating leg lifts require all the makings of Pincha (engaged core, open hamstrings, flexible & stable shoulders), without the stress of stacking the body on top of the shoulders. So if you’re dealing with pain or injury, or just not feeling in a very upside down mood, you can still practice the techniques for inversions. Everything is adaptable. Yet another awesome thing yoga shows us. . 💎. Day 8 was #scorpion variation of Pincha (old photo), which actually tends to be pretty accessible due to the backbending nature of forearm stand. 💎 . Day 9 is any Pincha variation, so I chose an old photo of #funkypincha which is fun to practice for single arm strength, shoulder stability, and core awareness. . 💎. It’s been a great challenge to participate in this challenge 🙃 Take care of your bodies, love them, enjoy them, keep them healthy. Happy ☀️ day 🙏🏽💎 . .

These ladies know what’s up. Taking time to recharge and drop back into the body is so important. We often get caught up living in every moment BUT the present one. Time goes on by, life happens around you and you are MISSING it.... Stop for a minute wherever you are and take a big deep inhale. Inhale till you can fill your lungs in anymore. Then, when you are ready, release ever so slowly... repeat until you feel slightly more grounded and give thanks for another waking moment of LIFE. . . . #yoga#meditation#restorativeyoga#breath#gratitude#omnesty#feelatpeace#leadwithlove#livewithgratitude
You are LOVABLE. . Don't listen to the voice in your head that says, "you aren't good enough." That voice couldn’t be more wrong. When those thoughts start to creep in, block them. In that moment remember: "Don't listen to yourself; TALK to yourself." . Speak truths to yourself. You are created for love BY the God of love. You bring God joy just by being you! Anyone who has told you otherwise is incorrect. Even if that person is you. . There's nothing you can do, or have done that makes you less lovable to God. . Today... I want to remind you that you're loved, and are highly valued, just as you are today. #youareloved
#joy // Oh heeeey, Sunday! As you roll into your day, set some intention. Get after the things that light you up, cuz there is magic in every choice. How you breath. What you eat. How you move.

Now, get after that Sunday am ritual that just makes you smile and then before you decide what you do next. Ask yourself - what can I do today to make and spread JOY. Ya'll, lead those choices from a place of love for yourself and others and I promise you'll see the difference. OMG, I'm so 🤩 for you and me and all the people around us today.
