I literally try not to laugh out loud in people’s faces when they say stupid shit like, “this comes easy for you” or “you’ve always been this fit” or “you know how to cook” or “you’re athletic” or “you’re already skinny!” ..... HAHAHAHAHAHA I seriously just laugh because I am the COMPLETE opposite of all of those things!  Y’all, my friends would ask if I wanted to go to fitness classes and I would say no because I didn’t want to sweat..... I spent $300 on a gym membership for a year and went TWICE.... I ate fast food everyday and drank at LEAST 3 sodas a day. I’m embarrassed about it now but that is the real ugly truth. I was COMPLETELY against this whole “healthy living” thing. The point is, if I can do it I promise you can do it! That’s why when people come to me with every excuse In the book I have no patience for it. Because that was me.  It only takes 1 click in your brain to want to change your life. And when that happens, I will be here waiting for you to join me!! 😆
Seeing double? Deja vu? The Shining? . . . @iamcountryside theme of the week: LESSONS LEARNED. I don’t even know where to start without writing a novel, so I’ll straight shoot. “Things don’t always go as planned.” “It is what it is.” “All the hard work is worth it.” Across the board applicable. ✌🏻 #chickens #polishchickens #petchickens #chickensofinstagram #backyardpoultrymag #poultry #fresheggs #pasturedeggs #freerangechickens #homesteading #gardening #iamcountryside #lessonslearned
Catching up on #marchmeetthemaker. Who knew challenges were so hard to keep up with?? Day 18: "Mistake or Lesson." This is my latest one. People have been asking for totes with a top zipper. I made this one, but didn't realize that while the zipper fits perfectly when closed, it doesn't allow the bag to open all the way once open... Lesson learned. The zipper always needs to be longer than the fabric it is sew into, and longer than the bag opening. . . . #marchmeetthemaker #marchmeetthemaker2019 #mistakes #lessonslearned #sewing #sewingmistakes #anytexture #totesewing #zipperclosure #sewingstudio #textileart #wearableart #learningfrommistakes

I’ve learned so much from leaving subdivision life behind: Lessons learned: -you can learn how to perform chicken foot surgery on YouTube -plucking a chicken is hard work -never bend over with eggs in your pocket -if you feed stray cats or peafowl, congratulations you have a new pet -when choosing rescue dogs, go for herding breeds, not hunting 🤷🏻‍♀️ Loved reading all the #lessonslearned from everyone playing along with @iamcountryside . #iamcountryside
One thing I’ve become allergic to after making some super dumb financial decisions is being BROKE. ... Try not to make the same mistake twice!
Playing along with @iamcountryside for #lessonslearned. There are so many when it comes to homesteading but here’s one I want to share:  About two years ago we had 2 hives of honey bees and were new beekeepers. One of the hives was getting incredibly aggressive, so we did our research, spoke to a mentor and decided it was best to re-queen the hive as the hive very likely could have had some Africanized genetics. We found the old queen, squashed her and drove 3 hours to pick up our new queen. I always visit the hives with my husband but this day I wasn’t able to and it was to be a simple process of adding the new queen. What should have been a quick exchange turned into a trip to the ER! 😱🏥 The hive was not happy with my husband or the new queen and full on attacked him. He sustained hundreds of stings. We later found out that there were actually 2 queens in that hive and we had only gotten rid of the one. Of course we will never really know the exact reason they attacked, but we believe that may have been it. They were thoroughly confused and were defending their home. Can’t blame them! 🤷🏼‍♀️ Major lessons learned!! #iamcountryside #dfarmtx

Day 18 (and yes I'm a day behind again!) is about mistake or lesson.  I think one of the biggest learning curves with my Etsy shop has been photography. I'm currently redoing some of my photos and I cringe when I see some of my earlier ones! I re-shot some photos of my knitting/crochet bags this morning and the difference is huge. I'm not the biggest fan of plain white backgrounds but it does make the photos clear, clean and unambiguous. I'll carry on with good old white until I come up with something more interesting that's just as easy to do.  What gets to me a bit is the number of grotty photos I've seen on Etsy and yet these people are SELLING!! Huh . . . ?  #marchmeetthemaker #heytheremaker  #photography #lessonslearned

You must go through the pains and the lessons before you get set free. This is the part of the journey where you learn a lot, heal a lot, and open your mind to so much. Don’t be afraid of it learn from it and keep pushing through. Everyone’s journey is different, never compare. People sometimes take longer then others to get through this part, but life always comes with ebbs and flows, it’s about finding your flow that works for you. Cycles will never come to a full end until you truly learned your lessons from it, if you have not then the cycle will keep continuing in different ways. Don’t get discouraged by this, keep learning and pushing through and you soon will understand what is right for you and your path in front of you will start to look more clear. . . . . . #strength #growth #path #lifepath #mindset #mentalhealth #life #journey #lessonslearned #spirituality #awakening #selflove #psychology #shadowwork #healing #selfcare #selflove
Roo Stewart...back when he was a sweet, lil’ babe 😌✨ * I couldn’t wait for this guy to mature! He was a stunning Swedish Flower hen and the standout leader of his brood 🐓 He was part of a trio of roosters I raised that year, with Walter being the most submissive and awkward of them all 😂 Unfortunately Stew had to go and found another farm to call his own. Why? He started stalking my kids and drop kicking me when I wasn’t looking 😳😤 #byedude 👋 * Despite all my efforts to humble him, nothing worked. I had such guilt letting him go, feeling like I failed him, and was a crappy chicken-keeper 😔 * Years later and many roosters later, I realized something. It happens 🤷‍♀️. Almost all of my chicks are hand-raised in our farm (yes, even Arya’s)! Some chicken folks claim they’ve never had an aggressive rooster because of their voodoo magic 💫. Trust me...I’ve tried every trick in the book and some boys remain on the dark side. And ya know what? IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT ❤️ It’s important to learn the behaviors of these guys in your flocks so you can respect their position and role. Reminder: YOU are the ultimate #flockboss! 💪🏼 👑 🐔 Be assertive, calm, observant, and patient, and you’ll get the best outcomes with any animals in your care. * Roosters, in general, get a bad rap, and that’s not fair. Not all roos are naughty boys, become human aggressive, or are tough on their hens. I’ve seen true heroics, chivalry, and sweetness 😊displayed over and over again with my roosters and I’m grateful for all my good boys that keep our flocks safe, protected, and in order. * For this week’s #roosdaytuesday, let’s see your #flockstars! 🌟 Want to play along? Here are the rules: * 1. FOLLOW me @newburyfarms and post a rooster pic 2. TAG @newburyfarms ON your pic and IN your description  3. HASHTAG #roosdaytuesday in your description and share a little "tidbit" about your roo ☺️ 4. Photo contest winners will

Lessons Learned from @wildoakfarms • • • • • Life is about growth right? Going after what sets your soul on fire.  A job. A person you love. That last slice of cake.  This week's @iamcountryside theme is #lessonslearned on the farm.  Man, I have a ton.  1. You will lose money. It will happen, you will want to do everything and you can’t -we aren’t superheros.  2. It takes time to find your niche. Once you do, you might start breaking even or making money.  3. You literally reap what you sow, like all of these plants I have growing right now for the garden. I will have to tend to, harvest. Clean. Put up.  4. It’s not for everyone. And that is OKAY. Just make sure you have support in your corner. Everyone’s dreams should be supported. Nobody will love my animals/plants as much as I do. But you want them to love that you love your animals as much as you do, love you. That’s the real masterpiece.  5. There will be a lot of cuss words, sadness, death, frustrations.  6. BUT. Your blessings will be too numerous to count. People will want to come visit you for happiness, happiness you get to experience daily. #blessed  Again, your blessings will be too numerous to count.  I’m in that stage. ❣️I didn’t get there overnight. It’s taken years.  Stay tough. It’s worth it.  What have you learned?  Tag the champions so we can all learn with you. 🙂 #iamcountryside #countrysidechampion #countrysidethemeoftheweek #countrysideandfarmlife #farmher #farmlife #farmfun
The #themeoftheweek this week for @iamcountryside is #lessonslearned and here are just a few of mine. 🍳  Always collect eggs in the same pocket.  That way both pockets aren’t dripping raw eggs. 🕷  If you touch a spider, you aren’t going to die. 👟  No matter how careful you think you will be, never wear your good shoes on the farm.  They will get muddy or you will step in poop. 💩 Dogs will eat every kind of shit they can find and often times try to smear their face in it. 🐿  And finally, don’t try to rescue squirrels that your dog caught or pick up hawks without gloves that get stuck in your chicken coop!
Can’t get enough of these views
Deadass pulled up to this boujee ass mall in @miamidesigndistrict looking LIKE THIS 💀💀💀 no makeup, sweats, and hair braided back. Even with that, I still felt comfortable enough to be in a photo to embrace the moment. . Too often, I see an area I’d like to take a picture in, but I let my insecurities get in the way. “If I would’ve worn some mascara, I would’ve definitely been in the picture” “next time, ima dress fresh af so I can come back and take a pic here”. What I’ve failed to realize in the past is once that moment is gone, it’s not the same. What makes a photo worth a thousand words is the feeling behind the experience of the moment. The facial expressions that are relatable. The outfit that shows that the moment wasn’t planned, but still had to be captured because it was so genuine.  THIS is how I choose to live my life. Unbothered by negativity by shifting my focus on the light. Embracing who I am and how I look every moment of the day. Most importantly, loving myself and being confident, regardless of how much makeup I’m wearing or what designer clothes I have on. Life is so much more than that!!! 🔥 I hope this messages serves as a reminder to BE YOURSELF ALWAYS AND UNCONDITIONALLY. There’s literally no one in the universe that can be you, even if they did everything in their power to be. You are beautiful, inside and out. You are strong, and surrounded by a loving and abundant universe. Accept yourself!❤️ . . . #selflove #selfcare #selfacceptance #boujee #nike #loveyourself #wheninmiami #lessonslearned #rebirth #newphonewhodis #nomakeup #natural #genuine #capturethemoment
18. Mistakes and lesson #marchmeetthemaker  This is a hard one as you make lots of mistakes at the start. You constantly compare yourself to others and can get quite disheartened when people don't react the way you expected to your craft. I have learnt not to rush my designs as at the start I wanted to get them out ready for Christmas so just churned out what I thought would sell. Now my newer designs sell better because I've thought about them more and planned them out rather than just blindly making troubles is it also makes them much harder to part with too as they are just so cute. * * * * * * * #mistakesarelessons #learningcurve #behindthebusiness #learninghowtobeaboss  #bossgirl #learningtobefearless #oxfordetsy #actconfidentandnoonewillquestionyou #learningbusiness #smallstages #behindthebrand #slowbusiness #slowcrafting #acraftyliving_art #slowart #britshmade #madebyhand #lotsoflove #keepitup #goforgold #learningasyougo #lessonslearned #yourbestlife

Preach!!
Failure isn’t just #failure if it’s a #lessonlearned . I’m constantly reminding myself of this. The more I get into this #mindset the easier these failures become and the more open I am to #learning from them rather than letting it become a negative. Hope y’all are out there getting it! . . #selfdevelopment #personaldevelopment #tastydangerous #lessonslearned #inspirationalwords #motivationalquote
The @iamcountryside theme of the week is Lessons Learned. I just don’t even know where I would start? After 20 years of this I could give you a running chronicle that would keep you here all day. 😂 . If I could narrow it down to one, it would be be to stop everything and just be. It’s so easy to get caught up in everything that needs to be done...and things that really don’t need to be done. . Because of social media, homesteading and farmsteading has become this race to see who can take more photos of themselves doing farmy things while chatting about how blessed they are. It’s so easy to get caught up in, especially if you’re new to farming and eager to build your client and customer base. But here’s the thing, ask a photographer (especially a wedding or baby photographer) about their ability to remember key moments during a shoot. You know what they will say? They are busy capturing the moment...not living it. There are even scientific studies showing that a person taking a photo is disengaged from absorbing the stimulus, thus leading to poor recall and retention. . I have a million photos of moments around this farm, and it’s absolutely wonderful to see photos like this and remember that special moment in time. But the moments I remember most are the ones with no photos. There are the moments where I was fully present and living it, not worried about how it all will look on Instagram. . So the one lesson learned that I can share with all my heart is to put down the phone or camera and start living this life more than you photograph it. Immerse yourself into every moment without the expectation of having to photograph every second for social media. . Just enjoy every moment to it’s fullest, because you never know how long it will last ❤️ . #iamcountryside #lessonslearned #bepresent #equineassistedwellness

Dubai Lynx @dubailynx is undoubtedly one of the most coveted, insightful and well thought through marketing events in the region. It has always been on my must-attend list from the time I was working in P&G brand management few years ago to now when I run my own business. I host, emcee, moderate and speak at various events in the region but when I was asked to host Dubai Lynx this year, I was undeniably ecstatic. I was the emcee for Inspiration stage on Day 1 and Discovery stage on Day 2. As always, the quality of content and speakers were top notch, there was simply so much to learn, absorb, reflect and digest with 3 stages running in parallel. Besides hosting my own stages, from the limited time I got to listen in to other sessions, I have jotted down my top 7 learnings from this stunning festival of creativity. . .  1. Steve Harvey @iamsteveharveytv the famous American comedian and TV host was such a highlight of the event. He nailed his talk which was everything uplifting, inspiring, insightful and hilarious all at once. He shared his personal journey and struggles on how he rose to fame literally from the ground up. He passionately spoke about grit and grind as the absolute essentials one needs to grow and succeed. Unlike other professions and skills, comedy is not something that can be taught. You’re either funny or you’re not. You’re born with this gift and it is up to you what you make of it. He shared some practical advices and tips for budding artists on how to market their work. He urged everyone to find their unique gift, nurture it, practice it and ensure they become the best at it. . .

Being judgmental is one of the fastest ways to alienate people and cost you the most important relationships in your life. Learn to listen more and talk less.  Learn to learn from everyone you meet.  #lessonslearned #bpluxlife

Pivot 19 - "Fancy seeing you here". Danny yells out as I walk into the Coffee Shop. . I don't want to be overtly friendly with him because I feel betrayed. . I just want to find Big Spender and have career conversations with him. . "Good to see you too, Danny." "That was cold, I missed you around here. You didn’t say goodbye before you left." "Before I left? I was practically kicked out." "That's not what I heard. The story is you had enough of this place and the robbery was the last straw." . What? Was the suspension a ruse? I played right into it. . "Is that what Bill told you?" "Yes. Ruby has your job now and she'll be in for the late shift today. She'll be glad to see you." . I didn't know how to react but made a snap decision not to cause any issues. . At this point, I have so many conspiracy theories about the robbery and my fake suspension. . "Danny, I just want to see Big Spender. Has he come in today?" "Not yet. He'll be here by lunch time." "Okay. I'll wait" . I half hope I'll see my manager and let him know that I know the sneaky move he pulled. But what's the point? . Because of this, I have a new strategy for my life and I am thinking of things differently. . Just as I am lost in thought, Big Spender walks in. . . . . . . . #lessonslearned #writersofinstagram #readersofinstagram #bookstagram #worldbookday#grind #mental #musings #storyteller #storytime #barista #pivot
Mistakes and lessons. Oh boy, the lessons are innumerable! We learn something every day, usually through our screw ups. Take this brown glaze on the left bud vase, for example. It was supposed to be white, but I miscalculated the amount of iron oxide by 900% (decimals are important, kids!) and got a brown. Luckily, it worked out fine as a brown glaze, but man did I feel dumb with 10,000 grams of extra glaze.  Most of my mistakes tend to be glaze-related, which is what happens when you give right-brained people a calculator and say “here’s an intro to glaze chemistry,” but I also routinely forget that Jordy WILL try to help me take photos at every opportunity! In this instance, he thought he’d rearrange the flowers for me 😂  Day 18 of #marchmeetthemaker . . . . . #ceramics #handmade #pottery #clay #yeahthatgreenville #shoplocal #learnfromyourmistakes #mistakes #lessonslearned #catsofinstagram

a repost from our founder @lisadbarnes It's transparent Tuesday I want to share how I ended my year last year and started this year, so far it has been a blessing. Last year was a pretty tough year for me because I was still living with a mindset of if you do right by people they will in some way do right by you.  Well, Issa negative on that. So, I suffered a level of grief that I have never suffered before because of this. I also,  let others areas of my life go unmanaged and then suffered greater disappointment because the people who played me in that area knew what I was going through.  Nevertheless,  I learned valuable lessons last year. .  1. You can't help everyone- because sometimes God is trying to get their attention and you're in his way. You will inevitably suffer in the end because he has work to do in them. . 2. You can't allow just anyone to be connected to your vision just because they say they are visionaries- delay,defeat, and derailment are inevitable. . 3. You yourself must first pray- if you don't do the heavy lifting first i.e pray, focus, cover your vision then you have to own the derailment that occurred and then recover. . 4. Have faith in God and discern others according to his spirit- then  repeat that again and again ⬆️. .

The desert is pure magic. 🌵🏜 • I spent some time painting in my journal this weekend. I love painting outside, it’s the bees knees. I’m getting close to finishing my @rusticomade journal, always a bittersweet feeling. My fella asked me if I ever go back and read what I’ve written. I usually don’t. I find it therapeutic to get it on paper, out of my system, and move forward. That applies no matter the experience, rewarding or challenging. More often than not, I can’t read my writing anyways. I use pencil, which smears easily. I like that, it’s as if it’s being washed away, giving me permission to move forward, lessons learned. • There is one exception. 😉 I do explore my paintings, each its own expression of my feelings at that given moment, though I’ll interpret it differently every time. To me, that says more than anything I write.

Creating Space 2019 ::: Lesson 12: Texture is my jam! ::: I love creating texture when I paint. I love eating food with texture.  I love everything to do with texture. I love TEXTURE!!!! ::: Texture can be created in so many ways.  I like to use colors,additives that create a gloss ,satin or matte finish . I use different tools to make strokes that create contrast on the canvas. I love when I create transparent looking colors with opaque.  Honestly , I could go on and on about ways to create texture ! ::: Texture on the canvas reminds me of my life. I have days, sometimes hours that I feel CONTRASTING emotions! ::: Creating space , creates the neutral zone!
I swear I’m gonna keep my next house as clean as this one is right now. And do all the little projects before the very end so I get to enjoy them. #lessonslearned
How do you get a gang member to start thinking about changing their life?  You start coaching and stop correcting by identifying their motivation .  #motivation - the general desire or willingness of someone to do something.  #torontopolice #gangprevention #lessonslearned #gangs #tuesday #tps #torontopoliceservice #police #911 #stoptheviolence #tuesdaymotivation #sharethelove #followme #new #ganggang #416 #905 #6ix #law #leo #share #violence #hope #change #motivational #learn #canada #together
“You can learn from your mistakes when you aren’t busy denying them.” Mistakes are an integral part of our lives and offer lessons that give us the opportunity to improve as persons. Every mistake brings with it the possibility of learning under the condition that we are able to recognize and correct it. We should therefore learn how to better receive critical feedback and make the most of it for our personal growth. Have a wonderful Tuesday, dear friends and colleagues 🙂  #mistakes #learning #feedback #growth #people #knowledge #education #mentoring #mindfulness #peace #beautiful #business #happiness #strength #success #lessons #lessonslearned #wisdom #dailywisdom #inspiration #dailyinspiration #motivation #dailymotivation #influencer #networking #leadership #thoughtleader #advice #successions
Pay attention to how GOD/U is moving in your life! Rejection is protection. Don’t get me wrong it hurts regardless but you’ll be better off in the long run. Make room in your life for the right people who will be true to you 💯 and engage in a healthy loving relationship both romantic or in friendship. #bellalifestyle #boldbellas #letthemgo #findpeace #followthepathgiven #noteveryoneisyourfriend #lessonslearned #rejectionisgodsprotection #selflove #makespace
LESSONS LEARNED with chickens 🐓  Don’t let them free range while you’re not home, unless you’ve got some awesome guard dog. Don’t ever buy from someone you don’t know and trust, try to stick with hatching eggs or day old chicks! Disease is way more common than you would think. (That’s a big one... I know a lot of people with huge losses from that, me included) Cover the top of the run so they don’t fly out and predator birds don’t fly in. If you can handle the crowing, a rooster can ensure you’re ability to hatch more of your favorites in the event of a loss. I’ve been really happy to have that option a couple times.  Make sure your doors and latches are good. Chickens like to lay eggs in the hardest to reach spots, so make your whole coop and run easily accessible. 🐓 A couple other things I get asked about that aren’t really lessons learned... egg shell color is based on the breed of chicken, the yolk color is based on the chickens diet, the consistency of the egg white is based on the age of the egg, yes hens lay eggs without a rooster, no nothing would hatch from the eggs without a rooster, the rooster fertilizes the hen (not the egg like fish do 🤦🏻‍♀️😂 a small spot on her back, hence roosters riding hens 😬) and all her eggs will be fertile for about 3 weeks even if the rooster goes away. My close friends and family have asked me these things in the past and now I get them a lot through insta as well. ☺️ Although I’ve only had one person who thought maybe eggs were fertilized after they came out, like a fish... you know who you are. 😂😂😂 . . . @iamcountryside Theme of lessons learned this week!

Spring is coming! And we all know what spring brings, bugs! I don't know why, but I love Honey Bee themed home decor. That is why I made this cute little sign and have ideas floating around in my head for some bee themed signs. But, what I don't love is their cousins - THE WASPS - setting up shop in my backyard! My husband was deployed last summer I didn't realize how much he had to deal with these each year. So guess who got to deal with them, me! And I learned a valuable lesson that most people would think is a no brainer... don't get after them in the middle of the day. Tuns out that is when they are most jacked up and ready for a fight. Best to deal them as late in the day as possible but when you can still see what your doing. I learned that the hard way. And that my friends, is a little tip from me to you as we head into summer ;) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lessonslearned #farmhousestyle #farmhousedecor #quotesigns #woodsigns #farmhousewoodsigns #myfarmhouse #fixerupper #fixerupperstyle #signmaker #cottagedecor #handmademercantileco #shelfsitters #honeybeedecor #smallsigns #mantledecor #honeybeesign

Usually when it appears that everything is falling apart, everything is actually coming together perfectly.

🎙EPISODE 12: LESSONS LEARNED is out now!🙌🏻
I'm behind a day! So yesterday's #marchmeetthemaker was Mistake or Lesson.  I'm gonna go with Lesson here, because I've made many mistakes but none of them have been particularly bad ones.  The main lesson I have learned is: markets are hard. You are there for a full day, and if you don't bring a friend it makes eating and loo breaks rushed and stressful. Although I enjoy seeing people admire the things I make, I rarely sell things at markets so they're nice for the ego and always lead to meeting at least one lovely person... But they cost me money at the moment.  I've taken on some feedback from sellers like me and I'm gonna try out different places to set up my stall. It's all a learning curve and hopefully I'll find my stride with it. But I always imagined markets would be the best place to sell and that is not my experience at all 😑. Things that I have gained from having a stall at markets: Ace sun tan ☀. New friends 👭. Amazing seller swapsies 😍. Lovely feedback on my work 🤗. Lots of dog strokes 🐶. So they're not all bad 👌. #marchmeetthemaker #joannehawker #meetthemaker #lesson #lessonslearned #lessonslearnedinlife #makersmarket #makersgonnamake #smallbusiness #geetlush
Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm. • You will fail many times along this journey, it’s inevitable BUT your attitude when you fail determines whether you stay where you are or push on. • No matter how many times I fail, I will always come back fighting harder to push past the obstacle that’s making me fail. • We get disappointed in ourselves for failing then we quit. Instead how about being proud of ourselves for pushing forward when things get tough and then let that be your driving force. • Failing is a part of life but you can let it break you or you can make the most of your failures and fight back harder. Failures are merely lessons in life; use them to your advantage! ✨
Rebirth is a constant process... Often done repeatedly.... With every mistake comes a new wave of rebirth.... And with new realization we shed the skin of our old ways and thinking and start again the process to reach further enlightenment and closer to the better version of us.... #lessonslearned

Remember, your perspective on an event is subjective. It's likely that your version isn't exactly how things actually were. . Sometimes you can make a different retrospective choice about how the event made you feel. This can release negativity. If you need to take some form of action to remedy your negative feelings do it as soon as possible. . Be brave, it's not always easy but you will feel much better once the situation is resolved and you'll waste less time and engery in a negative place. x  #reflect #love #reflection #relax #reflections #life #introspect #joy #hope #lessonslearned #happy #inspiration #instagood #goals #think #peaceofmind #balance #loveyourself #confidence #peace #fun #amazing #friends #beautiful #beauty #happiness #goodtimes #justgoodcompany
