Spending this rainy morning writing content for my new book study that will begin on September 14th. What I am currently writing about is wholehearted living and how it is all about engaging in our lives from a place of WORTHINESS. It's about going to bed at night thinking... I know there's a lot I didn't get done today... but I am STILL worthy of LOVE and belonging..I am still an amazing human with the capacity to make a difference in the world. it's not a one time decision... it's over and over. Minute by minute... choice by choice... currently my house is filled with boys. Which translates into smells that are completely unexplainable... it's similar to a combination of rotten meat and dead animal perhaps??? I walked into the bedroom where they all slept last night and it looks something similar to frat party gone horribly wrong... I've never been to a frat party mind you... I was the only pregnant girl on campus so fraterniy people really didn't take kindly to me...😂Anyway... it was like leftover remnants of a really good time... pop cans stacked up everywhere... food spread out like old country buffet and TV's set up across the board so they could play their damn video games until they passed out. it looked exactly like the inside of a surveillance room. I took a REALLY frickin' deep breath... swallowed my pride and my struggle for perfection and realized that THIS is the stuff that life is made of.... people, memories, moments and even a little misbehavior thrown in. In my struggle to please, perfect and perform I would have loved to come unglued... but I dug deep and was determined to choose different and to respond in a different way... a way that was better for everyone. A way that was loving, compassionate and kind. And a way that showed my children that being perfectly imperfect is a pretty beautiful thing. If you are on a quest to live a perfectly imperfect life like me... I have ONE SPOT REMAINING in my upcoming book study. We are walking through The Gifts Of Imperfection by Dr. Brene Brown. Four weeks... group coaching, learning from eachother all while building community and connection. Message me for details or to snag that last spot🙌

Connection is not about a day or an event on the calendar... it is a state of the heart. It's when people come together and build trust with one another and lean on each other... when they listen to understand and practice compassion and give us room to breathe. Some of my dearest friends are so far from me geographically but we do the best we can with the time we have but we are always connected with each other in spirit and heart. Tell your friends how much they mean to you today... give them some love and let them know how they have made a difference in your life. @giannacapra1998
I think poor Ellie thought her shoot would never end. We literally laughed and giggled so much and enjoyed every morsel of the evening sun. I love spending time with these kids and learning about them, their interests and passions and what they hope to become some day. Ellie already knows she plans to pursue a career in medicine. I love how focused she is and have no doubts she will be so successful in whatever she sets her mind to. @ellie.vg
