For the rest of October we will be sharing women's stories of loss, strength and courage. Starting with the beautiful @leissewilcox 🖤🖤 *Full story on our blog*
@leissewilcox: "This is what I remember of my miscarriage. I felt I wasn’t entitled to that deep a loss because I was only eight or so weeks pregnant. I felt it shouldn’t have counted because I already had three thriving children, and who was I to mourn the loss of a baby that wasn’t. I remember feeling shocked as I sat in the bathroom and lived out the loss, watching myself as if I were watching another person entirely, realizing what exactly she held in her hand, and what exactly she wouldn’t be holding in her arms in the next six and a half months. I think that loss, of any kind and to any degree, can become an integrated part of your future, without necessarily dwelling on the loss itself. Rather, take the hurt, and the very powerful experiences behind that hurt, and treat it as scar tissue; a place that will always feel tender for you, and a place that you might need to take extra care of, and also one that remains a part of your story, but is not the main narrative. The path to this level of integration is found in talking, sharing, comforting, and above all, listening. If someone you know has experienced a miscarriage, listen. You don’t need to solve, you don’t need to console, you don’t need to understand or ask questions. All you need to do is listen and acknowledge the pain and continue to listen as long as needed.”
Thank you for sharing your experience. It means so much to so many. 🖤✨
#Rise and #Grind ! While you are still waiting to find an easy way or a perfect time, someone else is already getting #results because they decided that making #progress is more important than making excuses! ✌🏼😜❤️
I couldn't agree more Senator McCain. "To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems," he said, "is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history." - latergram #aboutlastnight#senatormccain#speakthetruth#loyalty#courage
Today's adventure theme is circled all around SPICE - and, although I love me some pumpkin spice, I'm not specifically referring to it's warm and cozy delightfulness.
This group is all about stepping outside of our regular routine and our tightly confined comfort zones to appreciate the world that is surrounding us every day and spice up our lives (ya see what I did there?). Today, I challenge you to appreciate flavor. Whether it is something you've never had or a flavor you just really adore, slow down, stop multi-tasking, and take a moment to really indulge in the taste of the FOOD (or drink!) you are sticking in your mouth.

Revisiting the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success I am reminded this morning of the Law of Pure Potentiality, the field of all possibilities and infinite creativity. Everywhere in nature you can find abundance. The water in the ocean, the sand on the beach, the leaves as they falls from the tree, the blades of grass that grow freely. Abundance is our natural birthright and state of being. It is only through environmental conditioning that we begin to limit ourselves. One way Deepak explains to experience the law of Pure Potentiality is to practice non-judgment. He writes, “When you are constantly judging things and people as good or bad, right or wrong, you create a lot of turbulence in your internal dialogue. This turbulence constricts the flow of energy between you and the field of Pure Potentiality. In the silent space between your thoughts is a state of pure awareness, an inner stillness that connects you to true power.” My prayer for you is that you will experience abundance today my friends.
