This is a long post and a long over do post...pictures 4 & 5 of this set are of 4 people whom I adore and was supposed to be with on a road trip to Sedona Az. this weekend to capture new video footage for the 2nd installment of the Catch Some Air story! An incapacitating lower back issue kept me from traveling with them (and kept me from two photo shoots...needless to say I was not happy this weekend😡) however @nilslw and @larswanberg are unrivaled story tellers with their hearts and their cameras so I know the only thing missing from this weekend was my incessant chatter! The shirt you see was dedicated by @catchsomeair to @nilslw and I and we are both still in awe of the honor. We were fortunate enough to be able to become a part of the @catchsomeair movement and community and had the honor of helping them tell their story in a short film titled “Rising Above” if you haven’t seen it go to www.catchsomeair.com asap!!! ... when @catchsomeair released the Tshirt it was accompanied with a short explanation of how met etc and said “everyone should be like Gary and Nils and DO GOOD!” ...what a humbling honor for both of us!!! I promise you @nilslw and I have positively benefited beyond belief becoming involved with Catch Some Air! The 5th photo in this series is the Father/Son duo behind Wanberg Media Arts @nilslw and @larswanberg ...Lars has been a dear friend of mine for over 25 years and is truly one of the most gifted story tellers and compassionate humans that will ever walk this planet... as frustrated as I was having not been able to road trip with this crew I am beyond grateful that they are a part of my life! Back pain will go away...amazing friends that have deeply impacted your life on such a spectacularly elite level never go away! @catchsomeair will forever be “helping kids with cancer stay happy when they feel crappy” and myself and Wanberg Media Arts will forever be along to help tell the story for as long as they will have us!! 😎💙💙💙 #friendship#specialpeople#dogood#sedona#storytelling#positiveimpact#cancersucks#behappy#agift#lovethesepeople#catchsomeair#roadtrip#sociallyconscious#justdogood#wanbergmediaarts#poweroffriendship
FRIENDS ❤️ Who are your people? Your tribe. The people you like to be goofy with, cry with, play with, challenge yourself with, eat with, mess up with.... These people are golden. You know who they are. Whether it’s 1 person, or 100.
There’s a quote that says ‘friends are like walls, sometimes you lean on them and sometimes it’s good just knowing they’re there.’ True right?! Surround yourself with good people. Pay attention to how you feel when you’re with these people. If you don’t feel 100% yourself...then maybe you aren’t with one of YOUR people. Who are you around when you feel 💯 like you, strong, confident, happy, challenged, motivated, empowered, light-hearted?
You are awesome 😎.
Ps do your friends a favour and get them outside today, and move. 😁💪
This photo is everything to us . These girls only met a year ago and have a friendship and bond so special. They are not all on the same cheer team but are sisters and their for each-other in so many ways . No one told them to pose this way , they performed today at cheer camp , so happy to be together and doing what they love. After the show was over this is what they did , this is what was natural for them . It’s amazing to me how at 6 years old they know and feel the power of friendship. #cheerbonding#poweroffriendship#cheerfam
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all the support, help, advice, ideas, comments and shares over the last 3 weeks! I am loving sharing my challenge with you all and all of the above is spurring me on to continue! I cant believe how much it has got people talking and also how many people are so on board with making changes for the better even little ones!
SMASH 2019 is over (😭) and all I can say is that it has been an absolute pleasure. Getting sick was a small price to pay to see everyone who has worked so hard on their art, cosplays, performances and everything in between. Con crunch never truly ends but y'all did great so pat yourselves on the back and get (continue) your well earned rest 👏👏👏 A special thank you to @mazziahwizardking@bogan_loli and @tvanyoung for helping out over the weekend 🙏 I would have lost my remaining 2 brain cells without their assistance 😵
I hope everyone had a great time and was able see and do everything they wanted. I am also looking forward to everyone's con photos in the coming days and weeks because I didn't take as many as I should have :') Shout out to @yawa_san for the extra snaps 📸
P.S. Sorry about my atrocious camera OTL
Now, let us stave off that post-con depression with the power of friendship 💪 #ilearnedthatfromanime#smashcon#poweroffriendship
My teams secret sauce isn’t just building for rank but it’s also building for Power of 3 with rank in mind. This will NOT work for anyone trying to build dōTERRA at their own “pace”. This works for people committed to their business who are actively enrolling and educating to help get their team on LRP. It’s actually really simple if you sit down with your closest Builder and set your goals then plan it out. I have Executive/Elite ranking getting their $250 and Premiers/Silvers getting their $1,500. So stop wondering why you can't, or why you don't or why you won't. Figure out how and why you will.
Have you successfully avoided taking action? Use that same power now to take the action, make the effort, do the work.
Fulfillment does not come while waiting for good things to drop into your lap, even if that actually happens. The fulfillment is in the challenge, the effort, in actively creating the value you seek.
Leave your past shortcomings, with their reasons, justifications and excuses, behind. Focus on the possibilities of now, step forward, jump in, and participate.
Visualize what success looks like to you, in such great detail that you feel the reality of it. Let that positive feeling drive you to transform your vision from feeling to fact.
Yes, you can achieve the vision. And when you convince yourself to act on that truth, and to persist until it is done, you will.
Do you have your Power of 3 $50, $250, $1,500 or still working on it? .
Our Powership in Ghana, Osman Khan, which currently calls Tema home; will soon find a new home in Takoradi. Although he will still be proudly serving the good people of Ghana, he will do so from a new location. Before the Powership departs from Tema, we wanted to build something that will last many years for the community which welcomed us for the past 4 years. As Margaret Fuller has beautifully said "Today a reader, tomorrow a leader". With this thought in mind, dear children of Tema, please keep reading, learning, growing and becoming leaders of the world; at the library we have built for you. We are counting on you to achieve greatness. Thank you for making us feel so welcome since day 1, it has been an honor to be here. #poweroffriendship#poweringlife#karpowership
It's been an exceptionally difficult couple of weeks. A lot of difficult news to process.
I am so grateful to have such wonderful people in my life. My friends paid me a surprise visit yesterday and along with their company they gifted me some wonderful "cheer me up treats"! Beautiful, magical purple Rose in an orb, my favorite peanut butter based candies and a a Disney villain book about the Evil Queen! It's so comforting to be reminded that I never have to go through anything alone, despite my tendency to hide away and not share my negatively with others. I don't want anyone to have to feel the hurts that I feel, but it is lonely painting myself in that corner. I know it's not doing me any favors and I need to be better about that.
Thank you for reading this. 🖤
I couldn’t get enough of the Captain Marvel movie and wanted to live in the movie theater. This book gave me the same empowered-and-addicted feeling! Everyone, please read IGNITE THE STARS right away and then talk to me about it!
Action-packed YA sci-fi epic + smart and strong teen girls tackling the ultimate problems in the universe + shocking plot twists + a timely social justice metaphor = IGNITE THE STARS by @mauraisdoomed has it all! This page-turner is perfect for readers who enjoy books like Legend by @marielu and Divergent by @veronicaroth, comics like Captain Marvel, or movies like The Force Awakens! I truly felt like I could see the action unfolding in front of me, and I sincerely hope to read more about Ia (pronounced eye-yah), Brinn, and even Angie in the future. And can we talk about how gorgeous this cover is?
Also, I finished this book while on a flight - after internally freaking out about how good it is and re-reading my favorite parts, I noticed that Captain Marvel was playing on the in-flight TV 😂 I tuned it right away and didn’t even care that we were flying in a holding pattern. Staying on brand!
10 years ago to this date, I met this amazing soul here in St. George, Utah. Thank you to our coach Marc, we have learned how to climb 5,000 feet above sea level!! We have learned there is always way to go up a mountain. Thank you Robin for all the laughter and extra pee in the pants. 😊 Most of all your love and friendship through the years. This is our place! #poweroffriendship
As Nelson Mandela said "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." With this quote in our minds, we try to support the education of children at every community we call home. In Amurang, Indonesia, where our Powerships Zeynep Sultan and Nezih Bey are located; we partnered with the Government of South Minahasa and distributed school kits to children before the new school year starts. These children will be the future of Indonesia and it is an honor to be contributing to this future. #poweroffriendship#karpowership#poweringlife
