Been a crazy 2 weeks... I had a few days where I was so busy and sick I couldn’t practice... I actually did practice first two days I started feeling sick and I felt better but one late night threw me over the edge into 103 fever territory and I still had to work. So happy to be getting back to myself. I had some thing on my mind tonight that I couldn’t shake.. honestly... had an argument with wifey and then I couldn’t shake it.. I tried to meditate but that didn’t work... then I decided to roll out the mat and move.. I’m so grateful that I did... felt 💯 after that... there were times in my life I would of turned to alcohol, partying or eating.. or just would of stayed pissed off... people seem to think that my wife and I have this ideal relationship.. which we do.. but we argue like everyone else... we say shit we don’t mean, like everyone else... but we try to end it quick.. maybe not like everyone else... I hate going to sleep angry... I’m the type that needs to get it out but sometimes it just stays in me a little more than I would like... anyways... I’m so grateful to have found yoga... everyday I find a reason to like it more! And this is one of my favorite songs... makes me really feel like on some beach... #realtalk#ziggymarley#iyengaryoga#yoga#instagood#marriage#truth#love#grateful
Today we celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary and had the best, most simple evening together just the two of us (thanks to my cute sister-in-law for taking care of Jack). I can't even express how much I love my sweetheart! These past four years have flown by but at the same time it feels like Kody has always been part of my life...haha so weird right?! ♥️♥️ So, so, so lucky to have him by my side!
I hated the way she saw my dad. Growing up with my man 👨🏻 hating mom was rough! Today I often see posts about "toxic people" and cutting them out of our lives. I feel this is a concept that is dangerous and seeing and talking about others in these terms can be harmful to our children, to us as individuals, to our families, ultimately our communities and society at large. Consider this:
What does the word toxic mean? harmful, even poisonous ☠️ right?
Yet if poison is in a jar, properly stored and sealed can be with us indefinitely and never harm us.
The only way it will ever affect me is if I interact with it or ignore its boundaries. So when we say he/she is toxic, we are reducing them to a shell of insignificant negativity. In all of my experiences of my mom hating on my dad. It really only strained relationships and caused me to feel less valued, like “if my dad is that bad there must something wrong with me”😔
In all of my life, I have yet to encounter a person who isn’t uniquely complex, even fascinating.
I notice I am sometimes irritating, I have hurt other people’s feelings (intentionally or not)
I get it! There are people that have no boundaries and it is, at times, difficult for us to share space with them.
On the other hand I am also loved by many, bring joy to many, and I’m blessing others lives continually.
Yet, I feel that when I reduce someone to a "toxic person" I am ignoring why he/she is in my life. So I noticed it seems to be a label we use to: -justify a difficult situation
-let ourselves off the hook
-refuse to grow anymore
Everything is right and nothing is wrong with setting effective boundaries, and holding a safe space for ourselves and loved ones. Yet what if we could take extreme ownership for ourselves and our life in a manner that recognizes ‘other’ beings as as equally extraordinary as we ourselves would like to be seen. #love#life#lovelife#relationships#buildrelationships#marriage#person#someone#wedding#healthy#family#joy#abundance#partnerships#instalove#instalife#instawomen#instasupport#holiday#queen#elite Life #academy#happy#homes#heart
