Years ago, Dave asked me:: “If things go south, what do you want me to do?”... “Fight for me.” I said. • The song he chose for the aisle said, “From New York to California, I’d crawl for you...” • Our love story has been anything but easy. So, while you could look at this shirt and laugh, I look at it and smile with reverent gratitude. This man has literally fought for us and crawled to get my heart and keep it. • I don’t even remember the day I told him that- to fight for me. But I’m sure glad I did. Who knows where we’d be today without it. • It’s easy to wish people just read our minds - that they’d know what we need and when. But I’m learning, yet again, that the bravest thing we can do, is be honest. Show up, even when we don’t want to and say what we need and how we feel. • Its risky business and there’s no guarantee we’ll get it. But we’ll never know, unless we try. • I’m trying to follow Love, these days, more than I listen to fear.

#Throwback to that car selfie 🤳 Let me tell you a bit about myself. Many of my childhood friends and school mates in Nigeria remember me being outgoing, talkative and confident. However, moving to New York threw an unexpected wrench. Insecurity reared it’s ugly head, I experienced a new form of bullying and quickly learnt to stand up and adapt. The presence of my cousins made it easier to discover my strength (thank you fosache_gr and the_superb_king). You see support is very, very important on this journey. You can’t afford to surround yourself with people who don’t remind you of the wonderful things that make you... YOU! Many of you have been haunted by the same insecurities for years, if you don’t face it head on, it will continue to creep up like the boogeyman. Own those things. People used to tease me about my height, glasses, and love for books (nerd status). Well I owned them and much more, now the people who are smart don’t bother to make negative remarks, the few who don’t know me try but quickly hush when they hear my comeback. But this didn’t happen overnight, I had to discover who I am and decide that I am perfect just the way God made me regardless of what anyone else thinks.

"La vida te lleva a lo que rechazas, a lo que juzgas a lo que temes" . Yo le agregaría (porque así me ha pasado)... "Una y otra vez hasta que decides aceptar lo que realmente pasa, asumir tu responsabilidad en la situación y actuar de forma diferente." . Estimado humbertomontes esto además del recordatorio de las Maravillas que hace la Coherencia en nuestras vidas fue el regalo que encontré en él compartir de tu experiencia de vida con nosotros el día de hoy en la sede de buscandolibros . Sigo en 🚧 construcción como dices 😎 y mientras me disfruto como va la obra. Gracias por aportar al movimiento de agentes de cambio con la energía e intención bonita qué hay en ti 🙏🏾🤗 - #FluyeYVive | #Change | #vulnerabilityisstrength | #LoveyourSelf | #Lights | #Compartir | #Compasión | #Love | #Aceptación | #Namaste | #SomosÚnicos

More #tbt from 2015. The male form is intriguing and beautiful, especially when it’s allowed to be vulnerable. Fight me on that all you want, my opinion still stands.

Gentle reminder that you can ignore Every. Single. Ad. Today, this week, this month, and forever. There are so many pressures to buy, save, and show love by spending money out there this time of year, but just like the messages that tell us we should try to get fit in January, or that we need to be drinking to be merry, or that we should be out at parties or events or gift fairs to matter to our community, it's just not true. The perfect stocking stuffer is a foot, not a gift card. You've already got everything you need in order to give to your loves this month—without spending a dime. Gifting is not a competition. Gifting something new is not obligatory. I always ask my sweetie for the same thing every year, for every holiday: a handwritten letter. I've collected them over the past 12+ years along with photo booth strips, concert ticket stubs, and disposable camera prints, and I treasure the folder that holds them all so much more than any bling or thing he could buy. Shopping for special things for friends and family can be so fun, and I've done it myself this year (especially for this little dog's first hanukkah), but it isn't necessary, and it isn't a measure of my love. As far as I'm concerned, it's you, your presence, your attention, your love, and your thoughtfulness that can be measured in countless free ways—that's all we really want. You are enough of a gift. (Also, I have the flu and I'm SO miserable. Spent the night laying down on the bathroom floor moaning. 😩 My body is really running me through the ringer this month!)

✨💖✨I'm so in love 😍with this right now!!! "Are you brave enough to be vulnerable?", "Are you strong enough to be sensitive" 🙌✨✨✨ People tell me that I show my emotions too much, that I should hold it together on social media, as if anyone of us was perfect!!! We are all human and we all feel the same feelings at one point or another, I don't care how hot you are, how popular, how amazing and almost perfect your Instagram may be. At some point in your life you too will experience happiness, sadness, loneliness, betrayal, depression, shame, guilt, completeness, emptiness, vulnerability, empowerment, security, insecurity etc... It's important to be comfortable being you 💙✨✨✨ #love #equality #strongertogether #strongmind #sensitive #sensitivestrength #perfectimperfection #perfection #vulnerabilityisstrength #vulnerability #transparent

Looking back on the year like... Ok - so that's not how I thought that would go! 😕 But also, there've been a few surprises... - One of which I have to admit has been the friendship, sisterhood, inspiration that is this girl miabellaristorp. This year has brought triumphs as well as disappointment. Pain as well as pleasure (and it's not even over yet). - But one thing I will take away from 2017 is this. Sometimes you meet people that will change your life for the better. That will add full technicolor to a tired old black and white movie 🌈 - Embrace them. Let light into places that are otherwise fine but not really all they can be. - Its going to take courage, vulnerability - a willingness to be open and to give as well as receive LOVE. Because in all we may "strive for" out of Life, true treasure is in the people you get to do this one Life with. - 2017 - you have brought me friendship, laughter, companionship and just that little bit of glamour ;-) 💁🏽‍♀️🥂✨ And to my sisters, You know who you are - I am oh so Thankful - (Tag someone you love & are grateful for this year)

Walking away can help you stay in your own power. It's not weakness or cowardice. Sometimes it's sanity.

moi__kiki The last minutes enjoying Amsterdam at a rooftop restaurant and having mixed feelings about wanting to go home finally (after they cancelled my flight on Sunday) and wanting to stay because this city is truly beautiful. Suddenly Ive realized that fact I stayed longer made me explore the city beyond the Red light district and pubs and bars and Ive found out that I am actually in love with this place. But for now good bye Amsterdam, see you next summer without snow hail and snow storms hopefully ♥️🙌🏼 * * * #amsterdam #amsterdamcity #amsterdamlife #travelista #traveltips #instatravel #marryjaneholland #stuckinwinter #snowstorm #rooftopbar #rooftopview #europevacation #cancelledflight #coldweather #europeinwinter #iphoneonly #iphonesia #innerpeace #feelingblessed #vulnerabilityisstrength #beyourself #youdoyouboo #eyesarethewindowtothesoul #crybaby #letgooffear #emotionalhealth #keepcalmandcarryon #stronger #strongwomen #beauthentic

Look to the light instead of struggling in the dark. • This may mean reaching out to someone, opening your heart and sharing that thing that is your darkness. Summon up your courage and look to the light instead. It will be the very thing you need. 🦋

Grateful to get to work with Ginger and Pixie today doing equine therapy with the Cohort from SAW. I have been working with this organization for 1.5 years. I will miss being a part of this amazing non-profit that helps veterans and first responders that have #ptsd. Thank you for allowing me to be part of this amazing process once again. 4 more weeks till I leave LA. I can not believe it. I am so grateful to this city for the 18 years I have been here. #ptsdrecovery #equinetherapy #savejustone #vulnerabilityisstrength #magic #malibu #leavinglosangeles save_a_warrior_saw

Today I was masked with anger ...I haven’t felt that emotion in a long time. I was reminded just how intense this emotion is, but also that it is a source of power and strength all in one. It was asking me to pay attention to something deeper, it was asking me to be honest with myself. When my thoughts, feelings and ego got in the way. The anger was a reminder of who I am, what I believe, and where I stand. So I welcomed it. There were tears. But It passed. It came and it was gone, because I allowed it to pass through. How amazing is it that when we don’t resist, and just let be ... how strong we really are
