Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
I love you, I love you, I love you.
ALL I WANNA DO IS PLAAAAAY.
I’m fucking grateful for the badass individuals @grottoclimbing like this chica right here- @earthyally_ (I’m completely obsessed with her- go get a feel for her vibes and I promise you’ll wanna follow) I started to explain what I wanted to try and without hesitation she reassured me we could totally do it and with zero fear hopped right under me. Collect those kind of friends- the ones who not only support you but also push you.
Oh and omg my mommy came and watched me play- shes in town for 2 weeks and I’m just as happy as can be!
You can’t please everyone- but that’s ok because you can do more than “please” those who really resonate with your message.
You can change fucking lives.
So don’t short yourself or more importantly (not to be a dick) the WORLD by simply aiming to please anyone.
So unapologetically you that people don’t even question it. Like art or spice.
The more I get to know and accept (love) myself the more I share authentically and unfiltered. No fear of judgment. The kind of shares we seem to reserve for only our best friends or partners- or even worse no one.
The real, raw and hilarious or maybe not so pretty, even the “socially unacceptable” shit. The kind of stuff that makes you laugh until you pee your pants or maybe the hard, heavy topics- the kind of stuff that reminds us WE AREN’T ALONE!
I no longer choose to reserve those parts of myself- the HUMAN experience for select periods of time or select humans. In fact- I actively choose the opposite. I want to be so out there- so comfortable and raw that I create space for others to find the inspiration and confidence to do the same.
Here I am.
All of me.
Love me or quietly remove yourself.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I love you. I love you. I love you.
To everyone who has ever hurt me- you make me fucking strong.
To anyone who has ever loved and supported me- you make me unstoppable.
For today- I’m grateful just to be here.
To everyone who is hurting right now- my heart is with you.
To my mom and dad.
To me, to you.

While all the fashion bloggers take their beautiful photos I find a bit of space and do what feels natural to me- cause smiling at the camera is waaaaaay harder Photo by @gypsetgoddess
Fail until you succeed
Sometimes there just aren’t words.
I guess it’s finally been long enough that the tongue has untwisted, the words simplified and the lessons sunk.
I met @kaylala88 years ago. We instantly clicked... and then had a bit of a “falling out” not directly- but we did lose contact for a bit.
Years later- I would see this badass lady on @instagram and I simply couldn’t deny my love, respect and admiration for her and her cause any longer.
So one night (I’m sure I’d smoked juuuust enough to be feeling all loving and outgoing) I DM’ed her. I don’t remember the specifics but I do remember her replying with a similar sentiment.
Fast forward to today.
In March Kayla gave me the chance of a lifetime- host your first retreat, but in the safest way possible. She handled almost everything- all logistics, planning etc. All I had to do was show up and teach- connect and grow. Even that proved to be too much one day ♀️ I hid in the room taking non-negotiable me-time and Kayla taught the class.
Thank you mama. You’re a rockstar.
Swipe to see what happens when you try to throw @kaylala88 Into the pool... #nope
Unrelated/related- A lot of you have asked- when/where my next retreat is going to be I’m putting all the pieces together and will be sharing it soon!! Holy shit.
