What is something you’re passionate about? Do you actively work on it? If there is something you love to do, work hard to improve yourself and enjoy the process. You don’t have to make money from it as a side gig, but don’t deny yourself the enjoyment you receive from those hobbies. 💖
This morning I woke up to find this guy chillin' above my head. My automatic reaction was "F*cking Tropics and their f*cking creepy crawlies! He's gotta go!" I'm very eloquent when worked up.
While flailing around trying to get him out the window, it occurred to me that I've never seen a praying mantis before and he was actually kind of cute. I was fascinated, so I gave up on that quest and instead started reading about my new green buddy whom I named Patrick (Paddy) Mantis.
From the wisdom of the internet, I learned that praying mantises symbolize patience and stillness. As an incredibly impatient and results-driven person, I knew it was no coincidence that Paddy found his way into my room. I've realized that the universe is always trying to teach us things, so I made an effort to keep tabs on him while he made his hour-long calm and methodical approach towards this bug to see what I could gather from this little green dude.
Afterwards, I gave him a 👍 for his work, made a comment about how it looked like a real juicy one, and thanked him for his contribution to the bedroom insect control effort.
But more importantly, I thanked him and the universe for reminding me that all good things take time and that life isn't one big race. The patient and mindful approach gets you where you need to go in the end, with the added bonus of being present enough to enjoy the juicy fruits/bugs of your labour.🦗🤓 #lifelessonsfrombwal#congratsongettingthisfar#thatprayingmantislife#mindfulness#stillness#patience#wikiqueen#nevertoooldtolearn#lessonsfromtheuniverse#beopentoit#checkyourself#beforeyouwreckyourself#fin

This is a good quote to live by. At work and at home. I have the work part down. However I could use some work at home. #calm#peace#patience#choice
Makenna's first "real" hike! She hiked about a mile up this mountain. It may not seem like much, but to this 4yr old girl with Down Syndrome, its a huge accomplishment! As we began to hike, her struggles became real very quickly...uneven ground, rocks to step over, a steep incline, balance, fear of heights...all the things that I don't think much about as I run up mountains. I began to appreciate the things that come so easily for me. Everything will always be a struggle for Makenna as she learns & grows each day, but just like climbing this mountain, it will take one step, one push, one day at a time to get to the top & to accomplish what we KNOW she can! It may take longer but with guidance, love, patience & encouragement she will get there!
UJ 30M. Price broke support before Asian open and I waited for the retest lf that broken support thag became resistance to take sells. Managed to bag 10 pips per 2 positions. Followed my plan and now I’m rewarded, did 10% on my mini account with this trade. See you in NY!
