The worst part is the memory of violation never goes away. It invades your relationships, your sleep, your very being. As we work through our own trauma, let's teach those around us what's okay and what isn't with our words AND actions. #metoo #keepyourhandstoyourself
One disaster after another. One massacre after another. No feeling of security. I keep wondering where our humanity and compassion have gone. Then I read about strangers helping each other even as their own lives are in danger. It gives me hope. It reminds me to put my own temper in check, to reach out when someone I know is struggling, and to lend a hand to a stranger in need. 🥀♥️
I got up early to work and felt my mat calling instead. I let myself flow through a sweet, intuitive practice followed by a little pranayama and meditation. Sometimes all we need to feel good is to make space for our body and mind. #morning #yoga #happyfriday #nationalyogamonth #flow
Unflattering, but a proud moment. I pushed past my wall and nearly lost my breakfast 😋. I'm nowhere near running as fast as I could before, but step by step it's getting easier. Thanks for @youngthegiant for your song My Body. Makes me keep going. Every. Time. #relief#exhale#running #sweatitout #sweateveryday
The morning brought cleansing rain and the afternoon, cheerful sun. Thank you @chreeaass for capturing this moment of silliness (with just one shot)! #griffithpark #dtla #nofilter #jump #oneshot#hiking
Dear Mama Tita, Thank you for taking care of me. For teaching me how to bake and urging my parents to get me a kitchenaid in middle school! Thank you for all the times you took me to the library, waiting patiently while I added more books to my pile. Thank you for teaching me Dios es amor when I didn't want to say anything during our circles. Thank you for all the extra black olives, the tacos, the fideo, the pan dulce... but most of all thank you for teaching me that everyone deserves a smile and a helping hand. I couldn't have asked for a more loving grandma. I love you always.
