TRASH OR TREASURE? Last spring I found a sprouted bean in a wet paper towel in a ziplock bag in my sons locker. I was unsure how long it had been there and then it even stayed in my van for a few days after that. When I came access it again I did think about throwing it away. I typically don’t like to throw anything away or waist. So I tucked the bean into a planter by the house. This green been plant has been so fun to watch grow and is making us the most beautiful fresh produce! Tell me, would you have thrown the sprouted bean away? I am so glad I didn’t!

Close your eyes and picture yourself waking up in a sunny hotel room right on the beach. It's early in the morning and the sunrays have begun knocking on your window, calling you outside to enjoy the fresh ocean air.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ☕ You sit down on the terrace and you sip your chocolate infused cup of coffee, freshly brewed by the amazing barista, delivered to you by room service. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your feet are playing in the sand, the sunrays are tickling your eyelashes, shining sparkles on your skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You close your eyes while you enjoy the taste of coffee and realize how lucky you are. You're on vacation, in an exotic place, the room is right on the beach, birds are chirping happily in the morning air. It's nature's orchestra playing for you live.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You are completely relaxed. Today you are recharging your batteries, you are detaching from your day to day life.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let the sun warm your heart, let the coffee play with your taste buds. Just remember, you are blessed!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💜 @LavensonCo⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 #minimaliving ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coffeeathome⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coffeecupping⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coffeeroasters⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coffeeblogger⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #manualcoffeegrinder⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coffeevibes⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coffee_time⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coffeeathome⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coffeegrinder⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #coffeeislove⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cosytime⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cozyday⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #cozyvibes⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I joined my side hustle at a crazy time, not only was it end of month, but everyone was talking about and gearing up for this thing called Monations. I immediately looked it up, and while I totally wanted to go, I completely wrote it off as possible since I was so new and I didn't think I would have the means to make it happen. Do you ever have those thoughts too? "I don't have the money..." "I don't have the time..." "Maybe later when..." Hear me when I say this: we have MORE money and MORE time than we think we do, and life is never going to not be crazy. I can easily drop $$$ at Target and spend countless hours mindlessly scrolling on IG or watching YT, but when it comes to investing in myself and my future, do my resources suddenly dry up? Hmm. I don't think so. It's a matter of perspective and priority. Even though I couldn't afford to be there, I couldn't afford to NOT be there more. When we start slipping into that scarcity mindset, we better check ourselves before we wreck ourselves! I know that line is kind of funny, but I am dead serious. The more and more tightly we hold onto our resources - whether it be money, time, gifts, blessings, ideas etc. - the less and less we have. Not that it isn't there, but we've buried it so deeply inside ourselves that we are no longer accessing it. Two months ago I was presented with a choice: I could either stay where I am and believe that it isn't the right time and I don't have the means to make it work or I could go move forward and believe that now is all I have and trust that it will all work out like it always does. I think we all know which option I chose, so the real question here is: which are you going to choose? I hope you choose the latter because you are worth investing in.
Guys it's #internationaltalklikeapirateday today!!! Which is really the kind of thing you would only know if you have kids tbh 🤔. Could be kind of fun in the office if you don't have kids though. This was always Arlos favourite day. Made the other 363 days of wearing his pirate outfit make sense finally. ⛵ #throwback#cutekids

3 Important Lessons From SIMPLY 1️⃣In the words of one my faves @officiallyquigley create what make your heart happy & flutter. Don’t get so focused on algorithms, likes & engagement that you loose sight of why you create. The why is what makes your work important. 2️⃣Be Intentional. Whatever you’re doing/creating be intentional with it, because it matters & says something about you. No matter how small it may seem it makes an impact. 3️⃣Know when to unplug. @katgraham said it best if something/someone is making you doubt/discredit yourself SHUT IT DOWN! You control what you surround yourself with so protect that space & take the time to be grateful & embrace where you are. ✨Remember what is for will not & cannot pass you.✨
