Hi Hot Babes…

…It might look like I smell of coconuts and vanilla, but this is really dried-up buckets of sweat beads, masked by a good blow dry and lipstick.

:::SIGH:::

…’Cuz that’s how I do, Son.

…Now…

DROP EVERYTHING YOU’RE DOING AND TAKE A HOT MINUTE TO GET YOUR MIND RIGHT…

This is code for change the WAY you look things. See the same things new ways. Get out of your head and into someone else’s. That’s where the magic happens, Homies. Swear.

HOLLA!

I love you. Namaste.

Peace Bitches.

WE GO DEEP!

Hi Babies.

…What better way to kick off your Thursday, than with a very a rare open-mouthed selfie of myself?

You are so welcome…I’m always happy to dole out a shit ton of ‘em, especially when I’m having a good hair day and my lipgloss game is ON. POINT.

Speaking of which…look at my new shade.

Photo on 12-11-14 at 11.21 AM #3This selfie makes me want to punch myself in the face, but we can’t deny the fact that the lipgloss is straight fabulous. I bought it yesterday, when I had intentions of ONLY buying new mascara. HB will love the DSL effect and so will your boo. BUY IT HERE LADIES. (If you don’t know what that means, it’s probably best you stay in the dark).

I know. That was naughty. Oops. <wink wink>

K. Time to get serious muthafuckas!

WE GO DEEP. WE GO DEEP. WE GO DEEP. WE GO DEEP. WE GO DEEP. WE GO DEEP. WE GO DEEP.

I want to elaborate on an idea that has, lately, been a recurring theme for me. The basic idea is that…

WE NEED ADVERSITY and STRESSORS IN OUR LIFE in order to appreciate and distinguish the GOOD in our life.

This makes perfect sense, but it’s easier said than done. Being able to welcome and accept shitty experiences is no easy task. It is human nature to want to resist the “bad.” Generally, we all strive to live in utopia, but if that were really possible, it would be pretty fuckin’ shitty! Here is why: Without conflict, we would be incapable of appreciating the fact that we lived in perfect harmony. We wouldn’t know the difference. WE NEED CONFLICT / CONTRAST. Something we have ALL THE TIME is not exciting or special.

Apply this to EVERYTHING YOU DO…

RELATIONSHIPS

If you’re with your significant other 24/7 and do not have a life separate of them, that shit gets boring and redundant real fast. You need contrast. That is what makes things interesting – different points of view, different experiences.  Having said that, I believe it’s important in ALL relationships (romantic and platonic) to maintain a certain level of independence. Autonomy and separateness are necessary to deepen and strengthen relationships. It brings people closer.

FITNESS

As a fitness professional, there is nothing more frustrating to me than working with people who want to avoid discomfort. WE EXERCISE TO CHANGE. Isn’t that the goal?! We cannot produce change when we only do what we can, easily. I often tell clients to get uncomfortable, otherwise, what’s the point? It’s not exercise and it’s ineffective. It is helpful to be aware of the types of feelings that come up when you’re pushed…then reevaluate how you feel afterward. Bottom line: THERE HAS to be a certain level of adversity here. You need to be pushed and challenged to get better and stronger.

FUN

If it were custom to have a drink or a double-fudge brownie with vanilla ice cream first thing in the morning, every goddamn day, it wouldn’t be fun. If we have a drink/treat after we work hard, we appreciate and enjoy it so much more.

GET IT?

As much as we don’t want bad things to happen, it is these very experiences that render real change in us as human beings. KNOW THIS.

I LOVE YOU. PEACE HUNNIES.
