This look of love is not for me. I don’t invoke such loving stares. This look of love comes with just the mention of the name ‘Jonathan’ from @cloud_canine_cape_town I want a new dog 😤😤😭😂🦮🐕 #valentinesday #husky #huskiesofinstagram #doggo #puppylove #puppy #dog #huskypuppy #huskylife #betrayal #adoption

I really am impressed with my state of irritation with my body. I seem to be developing a new skill in face painting... if all else fails with current hobbies, I’m heading to the face painting peeps to explore options. #selfie #makeup #curlyhair #unfilteredbeauty #swiitchbeauty

In all Sunday honesty, I have not enjoyed teaching yoga over the last year. The disingenuous ( is this a word because English and I are not good friends ) set up of yoga, the studios & some humans that practice it, the messaging around it ... everything really has put me off the practice for a solid 12 months. Toward the end of the 2019 I was very happy to say good bye to my practice because it really became harmful to me (physically , mentally and spiritually ). Anyway, I’m still iffy about doing more yoga than I already am at the moment, particularly outside of the comfort of my personal space. But, the teacher in me won’t let an opportunity fly by without a teaching moment - - Dancing Warrior- This little sequence comes from the 90’s, developed by Shiva Rea while studying yoga and dance. This flowing sequence warms the entire body up and is excellent for preparation for a variety of asanas in an Intermediate and Advanced class☀️ Please note the following yogi bears - just because you can do a handstand, headstand, crazy ass arm balance and the splits DOES NOT MEAN YOU’RE ADVANCED! Be that as it may, if you’re feeling iffy about movement in an almost but not similar way that I am, don’t aim to do 30minutes of yoga, 2 minutes is all you need. Advanced practitioners of movement understand that refinement in movement is way more important than extreme and fast movement. Lastly, learn your basics well. You can not go wrong when your foundation is good. P.S. thanks to all celebrities for getting plastic surgery to have a bum as big and peachy shaped as mine - your fav included. You have sexualised my natural shape that you bought for yourself, bless you. I now feel more comfortable to walk in the street, go to a yoga class and just be. Thanks. #dancingwarrior #yogasequence #yogi #yogateacher #yoga #husky #puppylove #exercise #donoharm #yogibear #yogapractice #yogainspiration #instalike #instamood #instagood #instavid #instadaily #instapuppy #plasticsurgery #curls #woman #curves #naturalbeauty #naturalbody

Two parenting styles exist 1. Concerted, constructive, consistent cultivation (choose whatever C you like ). This style assess and fosters the child’s opinions, skills and talents. 2.Accomplishment of natural growth. The parents see it as their responsibility to take care of child but let child grow and develop on their own. Note to you who is planning on birthing children this year; teach your children entitlement. They have a right to be seen. They have a right to have a conversation they want to have. They have a right to call attention to themselves. They have a right to negotiate. Children need a community that is going to prepare them for the world. . . . . . . . . . . #selfie #children #curlyhair #curls #kids #parenting #psychology

I knew this mother once who saved my life when I was in one of my worst parts of my journey. She was the happiest, brightest smiley woman I know, next to her daughter- my sister. She would smile through her pain, sing this annoying song about God’s grace ( even in her last moments ) and was so bright in energy that I was always confounded by her. Harvey met her yesterday. I forgot to ask her what she thinks about him but he was vibing with her for a moment. We had such a beautiful conversation. She showed me her happiest moments dancing with her husband in a stunning white dress, she was obsessed with her children- like, loves them even in her last moments. Grandkids too. She wanted nothing more than to be seen and heard and often was sad when she was overlooked by people she cared about ( anyone else know that feeing? 🙋‍♀️ ) In fact I now understand that she was saying sometimes it was like her moon was blocked and over ruled by her sun. Like the little girl in her was overruled by the adult in her. My response was ‘ yeah, that’s the shitty part of living on this earth. We’re pretty much always trying to give our moon as much attention and space as we do our sun’. Before we parted ways yesterday I kissed her on her forehead, told her I love her and said it’s time for you to go. It’s time for me to go too, Harvey needs the bathroom.’ Any way- here is the lesson in the conversation with my other mother. It is vitally important to make room in your life for that little girl/boy on the inside. S/He/ They must be heard, must be understood and not ever overruled. The human experience demands that we find a greater sense of equilibrium between the two, before time runs out. Also - kids rule. Adults drool. Dogs are cool.

Here is what made me smile for a few seconds and counting... set your mind and keep it set. Do not spend time thinking about the past today- keep it moving cupcake! P.S. my hair looks good because I just got out of the shower, it’s brushed, clean and has been fed well. I also got that gene from my mum. My skin is popping because I don’t wear makeup, I drink water and really mind my business 🧚‍♀️ . . . . . . . #happythursday #selfie #curls #keepitmoving

I could not possibly have anticipated the sh*t storm that would come with this dog... And no, the decision to adopt Harvey is non reversible. In fact that is exactly why the dog is so dysfunctional... because humans are constantly mistreating everything under the sun. - Thankfully, the universe has placed many in my path to remind me that it’s all a part of a life unfolding... for both Harvey and I. - Anyway, enjoy this picture of a sleeping dog. It seems to be the only time that he is well behaved 🙄🤣😭 . . . . . . . #huskyrescue #siberianhusky #husky #dog #instapup #instalike #dogsofinstagram #doglover #adoptdontshop

We’re pretty much in the second month of our relationship and so far it’s been heavenly. Please note that heaven is not roses and cream filled donuts, heaven is created by your willingness and increased ability to stretch yourself. 💥 _ At the edge of discomfort lies the peace, love, joy, fulfillment you’ve always searched for... but as with all things heaven related... you have to die to get there. _ 2months later and I’ve died more than I care to admit or talk about. What I’ve gained is way more worth it. The freedom to study behavior, observe myself through observing others, reminders in patience and understanding and most wonderfully, redefining love and all its complexities and simplicities. _ an ‘observed Note’ regarding understanding behavior - why are you having children, plants, animals when you’re not prepared to learn them? _ It is my life’s work to study movement, behavior and the complexity of communicating what is being seen, not seen but always loudly thrown at you. I often find myself asking 1 ) when will adult humans accept that the only way to truly understand behavior is to evaluate yourself? 2 ) And then to take it further, understand that you are talking all the time but you’re not listening to your plants, babies, dogs, rats et al talk back? 3 ) how much of the bad behavior we’re seeing in our children , plants, rats, cats and dogs et al is really just a reflection of you and your shitty knowledge base on communicating properly. 💥 You suck at delivering messages and you suck at understanding messages sent and received (decoding ) Stop that shit. 💥 Do yoga to force yourself to shut up and learn how to observe yourself in movement (try @holdingspacect ) and then do some Pilates to refine your skill to listen and move with intention @livinglifepilates _ If not, and you try to take a swipe at Harvey again at #dewaalpark Im drop kicking you into 2020. period 💥 #adoptdontshop #siberianhusky #yogateacher #pilates #doglover #meditation #love #rescuedogsofinstagram #psychologyfacts #instagood #instalike #traumasurvivor
