Happy Birthday to my Baba! Today he turns 70! I feel so lucky to share the same birthday with my dad... I can’t think of any gift greater than the gift of having him as my Baba, my best friend, and my number #1 fan.💕#birthday#bestdadever#love
Can never have too many vice grips when it comes to trail fixes. Ripped a brake line, but this got me off the trail. I guess Ill be doing a brake line upgrade video soon haha. Apologies to those waiting for the Monday upload. I shot 3 videos over the weekend and took advantage of the snow and wheeling to make some awesome content. Editing fell behind, but part 2 on the tail light repair will be done tonight! As always, channel link in bio! #jeeplife

Treated myself to a four-day family weekend with @whoa.weird ♡ There was a lot of this. A lot of working on a 500 piece puzzle. So much cheese and crackers. Plenty of coffee shop dates. I think we’re pretty lucky that “quality time” is a love language we both speak fluently ✨.
The puppets were 25 to 28 centimeters (9.8 to 11 inches) tall, and some of the stages were so large, that animators could actually fit through the set doors, with minimal crouching.
Title: CORPSE BRIDE (2005)
Directors: Tim Burton and Mike Johnson
When at home it's my home practice, at the gym it's an indoor session, outdoors it can be either opportunistic or planned out in either an urban or less organized environment.
Point is I'm always practicing something. Whether it's skill, strength, positions, transitions, vision related, reflexes, breathing or breath holding, there is always some way of gamifying an activity or simply stimulating the moment with a small challenge.
Stand on one leg, use your non dominant hand for menial tasks like typing or brushing your teeth, walk silently, jump to a target, bust a squat! Breathe or don't breathe but with intention.
Habits develop themselves through repetition. Treat them like any other form of personal hygiene and practice often.
Team swole reporting for duty! our first YouTube video will be up this Friday! 🎥 We had so much fun with this and can’t wait for you guys to watch! Honestly we stepped a little outside our comfort zone doing this, but comfort zones are where dreams go to die. Let’s get this bread baby 💪🏼
Valentine’s day last week was one for the books. With the unexpected snow it brought many hurdles to jump over including delayed product, and no delivery drivers. We wanted to thank everyone for their support and help including @mtnewtonfloral for going above and beyond and for the great @helloaudra 😘
Was scrolling through the first pics ever taken of me @ UVic & now that I'm graduating it's amazing to look back at how things have worked out. ☀️
I never thought I'd deal with accidentally rooming with a drug dealer, handling long distance for as long as I had to, the huge relationship shifts that happen once you permanently move away, scammy contracts, & the depression and anxiety that spiked during and in the wake of all of it. ☁️
But I also never thought I'd land myself an internship w/ a record label after the school yielded no relevant postings, get published in The Huffington Post/have it translated to 3 other languages, have 100+ published works by 22, land myself numerous reputable digital marketing & writing contracts, & have this much positivity and direction as I leave school 🙏 Excited to keep going.
Let's begin the week right with a dreamy foyer. Key components to a successful entry: tall bright windows, plenty of storage, open space, and a nook for putting on your shoes, or daydreaming with a book & coffee 📚 ☕️ #projectgorge
#sundayfundays at the @fultron compound 😻. It feels good to get more hours on the @marinbikes Alcatraz. No matter what type of rider you are, I feel it’s important to constantly mix it up. If you mostly ride enduro, go hit the dirt jumps more and vise versa. It’ll make you a better rider.🤙 #funisthebest@kavu
Special thank to @markymath

Some people will tell you that I'm cut-throat. That I'm aggressive... That my honesty is hurtful. They'll say I'm bitchy because I protect my value. These people are usually the one's who tried to take advantage of it in the first place.
I wasn't always so direct, and I believe that when women call another woman aggressive or disingenuous - simply because she's standing up for herself - it's a certain kind of indefensible harm.
There was a time in my career when I firmly believed that I needed certain women around me in order to be successful. I let these women wound me in ways I didn't quite understand. I would often take the blame for their destructive behaviour. I allowed them to jeopardize important relationships because they wanted to be in control. I let them develop a certain kind of reality - one where I was always available.
These were painful lessons to learn. That sometimes, the most seemingly genuine people in your professional life are actually the ones who don't think you should experience success without them. The only way it works, is if they're working you.
If you wonder where my courage comes from... It comes from experiencing a certain kind of loss. Losing the camaraderie of wonderful people at the hands of women who didn't want me to thrive because they felt threatened. I learned that I had to take responsibility for my work, my energy and my time. I learned how to speak up and say no. No more. Not good enough. Its ironic that in making these changes, my circle became considerably smaller, and my level of success considerably higher. #superpowerincluded
Our Service Boot in Bourbon Horsebutt is made from this beautiful and classic @horweenleather. The leather itself is the entire buttocks, meaning it has the shells intact. This allows for more durability and longevity than cowhide.
✨ 5 Tips to Improve Listening Skills
1. Accept the fact that you won’t understand everything – You’ll miss words or sentences and that’s normal. I mean, if you understood everything, you wouldn’t be studying English 😆
2. Listen with a purpose – Focus on a specific purpose other than just ‘improving listening’. For example, you could listen to a podcast to learn more about something in particular that interests you. Maybe you want to learn more about current fashion trends or how to change your money habits. Whatever it is, having a clear purpose will make your exercise more effective and interesting.
3. Be active in your listening – Passive listening is great for when you just want to relax and watch a movie. But if you want your learning sessions to be more productive, you need to get more involved. Learning doesn’t really happen if you’re not engaged and active. One of the best ways to do this is to take notes while your listening. For example, you could write down the names of the speakers and the general points of what they’re trying to say. If there is a word or a sentence that you find interesting, you could write it down and practice using it.
4. Practice a little every day, not an hour once a week – Think about it, if you practice an hour once a week, you’re still only practicing once a week. Practicing 15 minutes a day (or 4-5 days a week), will be so much more effective.
5. Trust the learning process! Listening is difficult especially if you’re not an auditory learner. A lot of people struggle with listening but just like anything else, it’s a skill that you can strengthen. So don’t give up and find the methods that work for YOU 💪💛

• Sebastian The Lamb can feed 10 children in need! 1 doll = 10 meals. @cuddleandkind has a beautiful values & a mission to feed 1 million children yearly who live in poverty. Lucas loves playing with Sebastian & putting him on his toy truck & pushing him around! It’s the cutest. ☺️💛 If you have a little or love collecting hand knit dolls I highly recommend Cuddle + Kind. Bringing awareness to children in poverty is important.
It’s been just over a week since we moved to Victoria from the vibrant Vancouver. After 5 months we felt it was time for a change and perhaps some home comforts, so where better than North America’s ‘most English’ city - nothing English about the snow though! 😅☃️

#conquer 💪🏼💙🔥 At the end of the day, whether you succeed or not is up to you! Stop letting others dictate your choices or how you view yourself and your life. Drown out the noise and focus on being EMPOWERED. 💯
Not completely sure when Hunter became cooler than me....but it's happened. I'm totally obsessed with his outfit from @cloverand_co 😍
We spent our day grabbing Starbucks and running some errands. Nothing fancy, but spending time together is what's most important anyways, right? Happy family day everyone💗
This photo was really hard for me lol. Not in a way you might think though. No, it wasn’t the lighting or the angle. It wasn’t Callie or my camera acting up. I HATE taking photos in public. Even the thought of it makes me want to crawl into a dark hole 🤣 Just typing this caption gives me that feeling in the pit of my stomach. I have no idea why, but photographing in public gives me so much anxiety! It’s one thing being surrounded by other photographers doing it, but just me photographing my dog on a busy city street gives me the worst feeling imaginable. It’s silly, but true lol. I will actually avoid a perfect photo op if it means people are around 😬 Probably one of the biggest reasons why I won’t make photography a career. Maybe one day I’ll smarten up 🤣

Self-love can be a real b*tch.
We are constantly told to love ourselves more. Unconditionally. To deal with the deeper level sh*t. Unpack our trauma. Rise up. Conquer. Inspire. And then sprinkle happiness around the world.
How do we deal when we don’t know how to deal? How do we rise when all we know if the feeling of falling? How do we start when we’ve never been taught to love ourselves?
A single post will never be able to answer all of these questions.
But a single post, and this one will, give you suggestions on ways in which you can start moving towards loving yourself a little more. You might push these simple techniques to the sidelines, but it’s within these simple techniques that you learn to show up for you.
When you show up for yourself you slowly learn what self-love is. What it can be. And from there it blossoms into different techniques. More time spent seeking that unconditional love. And slowly, you rise up.
It happened to me. It’s happened with my clients. It can happen to you. You are not the only person who can’t experience self-love. Remove that bs from your mind.
The 3 techniques you can implement today:
1- Journal. This doesn’t have to be stressful. Opt for a prompting journal if you are new to journalling. (I’ll be sharing mine today & adding to my highlights under “read”).
2- Affirmations. I start my day with an affirmation card every single morning (also linked).
3- Do you. Stop living for everyone else but you. Write down the sh*t that lights your soul on fire. Map out what you want to do this year. Trips to take. Adventures to go on. Dates with yourself. Foods to eat. Classes to enrol in.
Who’s out there lovin’ selves? Trying to? Wanting to? Feelin’ stuck?
chase the sunset 🌅 love this time of year when the days are slowly getting longer, and spring and warm evenings are just ahead!

• Happy Family Day!! 💛🌈 You know, hitting 12 weeks was such a milestone for me since the loss in November. I still worry sometimes during the day because I just feel like I should be having more symptoms! I’m pretty lucky not to have morning sickness unless I haven’t eaten for 2 hours. 😂 I have to graze throughout the day & it’s mostly on carbs. No shame! 🥖 I wouldn’t say I have aversions yet but smells!
Want to dive deeper into the Great Bear Rainforest? Join us for a very special evening on February 21st with Director Ian McAllister and experts from the field for a special presentation of the #greatbearimax. This is an opportunity to ask questions about the issues facing the Great Bear--and about how that "one shot" was really captured. Ian and co-author Alex Van Tol will be doing a book signing of the Great Bear Rainforest Behind-the-Scenes book, by @orcabook, after the screening.
Link in bio under "Join Us at the #greatbearimax with Ian McAllister". All proceeds will go towards our conservation efforts in the Great Bear Rainforest. Looking forward to seeing you there!
"Tahlequah's tragic tour of grief started out there, in the water. Her actions attracted international attention and an outpouring of sympathy. And rightly so.
It was July 24 from last year, near this area in Victoria, when a whale watch operator caught sight of a killer whale calf swimming beside her mother. Sadly, just half an hour later, before the Center for Whale Research (@centerforwhaleresearch) experts could arrive, the calf had already died. But her mom, a 20-year-old orca named Tahlequah, didn't want to believe it. Maybe her daughter would come back. After all, even if it was only for a brief moment, Tahlequah saw her baby swim by her. She couldn't just let her go. And she didn't.
It is not uncommon for a killer whale to carry her dead infant for a few hours, perhaps even a day. By the time her story reached international attention, the mother had carried her daughter's body for more than a week and across hundreds of miles. She wouldn't let her go.
Three years earlier, Tahlequah had a miscarriage. She had already lost one baby, and she didn't want to believe it was happening again. Even when the body slipped off her head and sank, Tahlequah would make deep dives to retrieve her lost baby. She refused to let her go.
All that extra effort took a toll on her. Tahlequah looked emaciated and weak, but her matrilineal family pod supported her. Killer whales are highly social, and other members of her pod began taking turns carrying the body while allowing Tahlequah to find food and rest. They know their population is suffering. They should be celebrating about nine babies a year, but instead, they have not had a single successful pregnancy in the previous three years.
In an unprecedented act of mourning, after carrying her baby's body for seventeen days and a thousand miles (1,609 km), a grieving mother finally let go." - Comrade (the human)
"A life can last a moment, but that moment can endure forever.
Go out and enjoy a moment together with your hooman, buddies. 🤗" - Sinatra
