Have you ever said something meant to motivate, but found that it had the opposite effect? It happens to all of us, and as #groupfitnessinstructors, #personaltrainers, #fitnesseducators, or any type of leader, #wordsmatter! While our intentions are good, sometimes words meant to motivate and inspire can create feelings of competition, or even comparisons, the ultimate thief of joy. This week, for my @afaa_certified video, I share some words you may want to stay away from when cueing, motivating, or leading others in exercise (or any capacity), and some positive cues that will inspire them to the next level. @nasm_fitness #ideafit #nasm #afaa #afaacertified #nasmcertified #fitnessclasses  #groupexercise #fitnesseducation #fittips #fitnessmotivation  #fitnessvideos #fitnessleaders #fitnessinstructor #fitnessinstructorlife #angiemillerfitness #fitnesseducator #mentalhealththerapist #groupfitnessinstructor #nasmtrainer #yogateacher #fitmindfitbody #mentalwellness #mindandmuscle #mentalmuscle #exercisemotivation https://www.afaa.com/blog

And no matter what anybody
says about grief
and about time healing all wounds.
The truth is,
there are certain sorrows
that never fade away
until the heart stops beating
and till the last breath is
taken.

This is what they now call what used to be referred to as “hysteria”. In my short film ENTRY POINT this hysteria is referred to, and it’s a piece of the narrative puzzle.  Back in the 50s and 60s women were dumped into asylums by their husbands after being deemed “hysterical” post- partum. Which we now call “post- partum depression”. Dark times.  #truefact #womensrights #equality #sometimesthebodyistoblame #sometimesthemind #giveuponneither #keepsearchingforanswers #postpartumdepressionisreal #history #sharesomeonesstory #womenempowerment #storiesofwomen #wordsmatter #hauntedhistory #create #educate #moveforwardnotbackwards #lookoutforeachother #perspective #followyourpath #entrypoint #indiefilm

Given to be happy...
****** Give me song lyrics 
written with a dull charcoal stick 
Give me a somber sound 
as only a heartbreak could whisper 
Give me overcast skies 
like they've strayed from a funeral 
Then give me some time 
to reflect on all that's lead me here

Verbal excerpt from Lovin Safari
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BH7TL4J
The moon peeped its head inside the cool, pastel-green colored room illuminating its light on the face of the gentleman that sat in the powder blue easy-chair watching the stars party as they twinkled. Gazing off from the moonlight, he then turned towards the door behind him as his mind transfixed itself back into reality.  He crossed his legs and pulled up his pants slightly, then nodded. The small ankle strapped Kimber .32 automatic still remained snug, and as he listened closely, he could hear his heartbeat rise and fall off his ribcage against the shoulder holster and Ruger .9mm.  Turning in his chair now, more from boredom than anything else, he checked out his surroundings again once more. The thirty-five-hundred-foot condo he was in was exquisitely decked out with expensive oak and marble furnishings. Large ceilings, and a winding marble stairway twisted its way upstairs towards the bedrooms--the place where he would hopefully end up if the evening played itself out right.
Available now...🔥🔥

Road Home ********** His words twist their way 
around me
like a long and winding 
moonlit ribbon of road 
calling me home,
where he waits 
arms open wide
inviting me to fall
headlong 
into the heart
whose hushed echo
whispers only my name. © 2018 Fiona Summerville

We all have challenges. I’ve found showing love and kindness is all about saying less and listening more. #wordsmatter #listening #mattersmore♥️ #Repost @mothermag ・・・
“There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t feel truly lucky that surrogacy was an option for us, and that we live in a place in the world that allows it. (Compensated surrogacy is completely prohibited in four U.S. states—including New York and Washington—and poses substantial legal hurdles in many others.) But, I’ve also had a difficult time navigating the many unexpected feelings that come with it. With all the feelings of gratitude, love, and hope, came envy, isolation, and grief. I wished it could have been me who felt those fluttering kicks in the stomach. I wished I could have bared the brunt of pregnancy. I wished nurses and doctors wouldn’t have stop asking me who I was when I followed Stephanie into the examination room. But more than anything, I wished I could have figured out how to talk to people about what I was going through. When I told people we were expecting, they would often look incredulously at my flat belly and I would have to stumble through the explanation. People would often follow up with comments about how lucky I was to avoid the pain of giving birth. Here’s a hint—the last thing someone wants to hear who suffers the loss of a child and her ability to give birth is how lucky she is not to have to experience firsthand the miracle of child birth. As a result, in a time where I should have been shouting my excitement from the rooftops, I often kept the news to myself. I was going to be a mom, but I didn’t look like an expecting mother to anyone. Perhaps this is why surrogacy is barely talked about and therefore carries a stigma of being an easy choice for people who can’t be bothered to carry their own child—those of us who go through it lack examples of how to discuss it openly and honestly. But I am trying, and no matter how painful or awkward, I’m starting to open up.” -Jennifer Talesfore opens up about her path to motherhood through surrogacy, today on #mothermag 📷: @jennwren @jennystrangegoods

One Question, One Minute Ep 7: Do You Need An Agent?
-
I’m super pumped to be bringing this back. I really enjoy Q & A format content, because I know it’s super valuable. If you have any questions, comment them down below. I’ll answer them in my next episodes.
-
Here you go @ct_cruising
-
In more detail: finding the right agent takes a lot of time and patience. You hear stories about people querying to over two hundred agents before they receive their first offer. And even then, that’s only the first part of the battle. My main point here is be patient, but also, be sure the agent is legit. There are a lot of low-life scum buckets out there. Use the tactic I describe in the video to check their legitimacy.
-
In terms of your editing question, could you be a little more specific. Are you unsure as to which type of editing would be best for you? I’d love to advise you further.
-
Thanks for your question. Don’t hesitate to ask more.

To Him� 
She is an angel� 
pouring love into cracks� 
long neglected� 
and widened� 
by the others� ...a southern breeze� 
gently blowing� 
melting the permafrost� 
slowly encasing his heart� ...who cradles�His soul� 
as if it were� 
the most precious gem on earth �
But that's not how she sees herself� ...no not at all� 
when she looks in the mirror� 
She sees only a girl� 
hopelessly in love�with a man� better than the rest� 
more deserving than most� 
of a life complete� ...who cradles�Her soul� 
as if it were� 
the most precious�gem on earth �

FALL | Most people who really know me know this, but creative writing is one of my greatest passions. I have books filled with poetry, prose and songs from many different seasons of my life. I’m one of those people who can’t always tell people what I feel, but give me a pen and paper and I can’t stop. So much of what I write never sees the light of day, which is fine because it’s mainly for me, but with the encouragement of a few friends and the belief that connecting with people through the written word matters, I’ve decided to introduce some #ejrwords to my feed. Some are one liners that needed nothing further- some will be snippets from much longer sagas. I hope you enjoy them, connect with them and venture to write something of your own. To celebrate the first day of fall - here’s “Autumn”. 📝🍂

Setting up my new vest and came across this little gem in the packaging. I’ve got no problem with the vest; it fits great. But the grammar police in me has concerns. *

Real love isn't fireworks and electricity 24/7
Its being irritated at their sense of humor one minute, and smiling at their existence the next. Its afternoon arguments with midnight phone calls because neither one of you wants to go to bed mad at the other. Its navigating the needs of space when either of you is upset, but never putting yourselves out of reach. Its the boring, and the mundane, and the unexciting spent together suddenly becoming your favorite moments; the little ones, we gloss over, between seconds, where breathing pauses and time stands still as you become blissfully aware of them, and you, and how being there, together, suddenly seems surreal, and too real. His hand skillfully playing through your hair, your fingers lightly tracing over his back, all the soft breaths synchronized to the pulse of two hearts. These are the moments of real love, soft, subtle, and sudden; quiet, and all at once. #azuresoul 💙

THE PROGRESS IS IN YOUR ACTIONS🥊
-
Don’t get this wrong, I’m a huge believer of educational resources and inspiring content. I’m not saying you should stray away from those things. I’m simply saying that most of your next moves should be based on your previous ones.
-
Nothing works like analysing the history of your older strategies. Do and then learn; do and then learn; do and then learn. Focus most of your energy on that.

Trust me, your progress will come way faster as a result.

Can we talk about visualization and manifestation for a minute? 🤔 A little over 10 years ago I made a list of all the things I wanted in a future husband. I had been single for close to two years and "He's Just Not That Into You" was like my bible. Remember that book?! 📖 I was starting to get into the law of attraction. I wanted to experiment and see if it really worked. So, I spent a week or so adding on to this list about my dream guy. It was really long. It included everything - his family background, his beliefs, his faith, his open mindedness, his ability to love, his own self love, his smarts, his drive for success, what he looked like. Everything! 🗒 I put this list away, but I thought about this man every day. While I did my makeup I would imagine him texting me good morning. I pictured our dates, and how much he made me laugh. I dreamt of falling to sleep with his arms around me. And you know what happened? ⚡️ I freaking manifested him within a month and we've been together ever since!! This is my bouquet from our wedding. You can almost see the charm with our picture in it. These white calla lilies represent hope and faith. ✨ I realized then how powerful my thoughts and beliefs really are. But, life gets in the way and we forget to visualize. We forget about our power to create whatever we want in this world. We forget to believe. Well, I'm not forgetting anymore. I'm dedicating more time to manifesting my dreams. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How about you? Are you focusing on manifesting your dreams? Tell me YES or NO in the comments!! 📸: @justinleephoto

Start them young. ⠀
.⠀
We got to visit Cole’s future school yesterday and the visit was bittersweet. Loved connecting to our someday community but also recognizing how quickly he’ll be grown. ⠀
.⠀
And it hurts my heart to see school aged children suffering. Our kids are meant to play and be carefree and be kids. But we are told to put them in more activities, to get the best grades, to be smart and kind and humble and curious and disciplined and responsible. ⠀
.⠀
Under pressure. ⠀
.⠀
Our kids are under so much pressure. And it’s not necessarily a parent’s fault, it’s our society, the system, the way we create reward systems and structure. ⠀
.⠀
But we can help the kids. Because when nothing may change externally for them, they can find the strength to be resilient in times of challenge, to reflect in times of hurt, to regulate in times of frustration. ⠀
.⠀
Mindfulness and meditation for kids works. ⠀
.⠀
💛 start your kid, K-4th grader in our drop-in class. Every Tuesday, 5:15-5:45pm. Where we teach them ways to cope, persevere and be compassionate toward their own growing. ⠀
.⠀
Because they are worth it. And so much more. ⠀

We’ve all been or been around people that say one thing and then do another. I have realized that this type of behavior can be a trigger for me. I have felt myself get frustrated, confused and down right judgmental. So, it was time to look in the mirror and ask why.
•
There’s a concept in psychology called the ‘fundamental attribution error’. Basically, the concept is that we default to judging somebody’s character, instead of looking for circumstances that might explain their behavior. A simple example is, if someone doesn’t return your call you default to thinking they’re a shitty person, as opposed to thinking maybe there’s a circumstance that happened in their life where they are not able to call you back.
•
So, instead of defaulting to being harsh and judgmental when people don’t do what they say they’re going to do, stop and choose to come from a place of compassion and understanding FIRST. Give people the benefit of the doubt — that way you don’t end up hurting yourself and your relationships by overreacting.
•
Of course, if somebody shows this behavior time and time again, that’s a different story. Just pause and check yourself first, to make sure you are not being rash to judge their character. And on the flip side, if you’re going to talk the talk, then walk the walk. Try to live a congruent life as much as possible and be aware that your words and actions matter.
•
As I continue to grow and heal I realize more and more that the answers are simple and usually come down to showing more love and compassion to myself and others. Most people are good and doing the best they can. Let’s focus on giving each other a break. Happy International Peace Day.✌🏻🖤Becs

A few weeks ago at the farmers market a woman yelled at me and the kids. I felt so justified that I wanted to tell her off, but I didn’t… I provoked her instead which wasn’t any better. 😐 We were all rustling by the edge of my car to get in car seats and load our goodies into the trunk. Meanwhile my grandmother-in-law gently leaned towards the neighbor’s car for a standing-rest. Then this woman walked up huffing and puffing muttering annoyances under her breath. I was so frustrated. We had just had a lovely time at the market and picked all sorts of delicious fruits and veggies and now some angry woman was going to ruin it all! 😡 So I egged her on, “Is there something you need to say?” And she responded with, “Yea! She’s touching my car! So RUDE! And now I’m trying to get into my car and you’re getting in your car at the same time! No manners at all!” Then she slammed the door and drove off. We were all left wide eyed and flabbergasted. 👀 My grandmother-in-law weighs as much as a feather. She didn’t harm anyone or anything. The edge of my kid’s dresses may have brushed her car when walking by, but nobody was hanging off the door handles (like in this picture! 🤣). The kids felt her anger and were scared by her tone. “Mommy what’s happening?” I was boiling but as she drove off I had an epiphany. .
.
.

Her negative energy doesn’t have to be mine. 🌠 Even when I feel justified, provoking someone else or trying to get the last word in does nothing useful for this world and promotes a bad example for my children. As she walked by muttering to herself, I should have just kept my mouth shut. 🌈 Even better, I could have sent kind thoughts her way instead of feeling the need to defend myself. 🦋 Truth doesn’t need armour because it’s already impervious. When we teach our kids to live a life of loving themselves and others, it’s not weakness, it’s strength. “Peace is not the absence of conflict. It’s the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.” -Ronald Reagan. .

"सागर की अपनी क्षमता है पर माँझी भी कब थकता है जब तक साँसों में स्पन्दन है उसका हाथ नहीं रुकता है इसके ही बल पर कर डाले सातों सागर पार तूफानों की ओर घुमा दो नाविक निज पतवार" - शिवमंगल सिंह सुमन Read this poem around 5-6 years ago and these few lines just got stuck. I definitely didn't realise in those days how much influence and motivation these words carry.Today, I take this moment to appreciate the greatness of words. The immense power that words carry is enough to wake up a sleeping soul, to change a society, to revolutionize the world. Lets keep the passion of poetry alive. Share your thoughts, sow the seeds of an idea, its surely gonna count.
