My husband

Purge purge purge! ... We’re throwing EVERYTHING away! ... My husband keeps checking in on this or that thing and I don’t even have the ability to look. ... I just close my eyes and say “toss it.” ... Fortunately I’ve been doing a lot of work around “things.” ... They’re just things. ... Why do I need things? ... What am I hanging on to? ... And why? ... A big part of this move into the future for us is hitting a giant red reset button. ... We’re moving away from the only real place I’ve ever lived for 20 years, different apartments in the same building. ... So I’ve collected more and more “stuff” and shoved it into ever bigger closets and storage spaces. ... Under beds and in corners. ... We currently have 2,000 square feet. ... I don’t want to pay for a storage unit for who knows how many years until we find a bricks and mortar home again. ... So I’m letting go, physically and spiritually, mentally and metaphysically. ... I don’t need that stuff that held me down in this identity, this space, that I held for so long. ... I’m not that Shanna anymore. ... I’m more and more this different Shanna, older, wiser, lighter. ... It is surreal to be saying goodbye to so much in so many ways. ... It is strangely, awkwardly, blissful. ... What are you letting go of right now? ... #lettinggo #moving #transformations #butterflyphase #tinyliving #downsizing #nomorestuff #throwitaway #letitgo #whenindoubtthrowitout #spiritualawakenings #keepfuckinggoing #bepresent #joyfulliving #intentionalliving #mindfulness #freedom #womanhood #womenofacertainage #iamhere #femmeunfiltered

Learning to roll with it. ... We got some news yesterday that may or may not affect a few decisions we’ve made, but we won’t know for a few days. ... Regardless, all is well and will be well. It’s simply a matter of adjusting. ... I’ve been amazingly proud of my own personal and professional success lately. ... I have awesome clients and work keeps coming in and I feel beyond fortunate to get to do the work I do. ... I got up to run at 5 today, after crashing relatively early last night, and when I got home, Carlos left for work and both girls woke up. ... Instead of freaking out that my morning was interrupted, I brought them into my bed and did an alternate version of meditation while allowing them to settle back into the lull of sleep they needed. ... I got a few quick correspondences done, and came out to the front of the house to do yoga and make coffee. ... Then by the time I needed to go back into my room to shower both girls were out cold and slept through any little noise I made. ... And they’re still out. ... Now I get to sit at my desk to journal and start my work day. ... I’m learning so much from simply stating present and letting my feelings guide me. ... I’m trusting that I will know what to do when I need to make a decision, and if I don’t know what to do, it’s because I don’t need to make a decision yet. ... This takes an enormous amount of faith. ... My job is to be in this moment now now now now and “do the next right thing” as my spiritual guru reminds me often. ... Do the next right thing. ... Because the only moment that ever matters or is ever real is this moment right here. ... And I get to decide how to live in it. ... How are you deciding to live in this moment right now? ... #liveinthemoment #dothenextrightthing #runner #meditation #innerpeace #zen #spiritualawakenings #personaldevelopment #mamasgirls #gowiththeflow #letgoofcontrol #bepresent #iamhere #newbeginnings #faith #theuniversehasyourback #lawofattraction #buddhism #witchwork #empoweredfemale #togetherwerise #femmeunfiltered

This is why I haven’t met her yet. ... Indeed, I suspect this is why most of us haven’t met the selves we really want to become. ... Fear of the unknown. ... What will happen if I leap? ...

🚫🗝🤷🏻‍♀️ . Confession.. Last week I canceled my contract at the Suite, I was ignoring the signs due to my excitement for my own spot. I'm huge on signs and the fact that I ignored them is my own fault, I acted too quickly in a way and well here we are. I WILL have a spot soon..it's in the works and by the end of the year I will be in a permanent spot. 🤞🏻🤞🏻fingers crossed🤞🏻🤞🏻 This is not a set back by any means, it wasn't meant to be and honestly, I was getting ahead of myself. Everything always plays out better in your head right?! 💁🏻‍♀️ Good thing I always have back up plans with an "S".. not just A and B, but plan C-E are definitely put into consideration. #LessonLearned 🤦🏻‍♀️ . . . . #BrowsByKristyJ #MicrobladeTechnician #OmbrePowderedBrows #BrowTechnician #Microblader #MicrobladeArtist #BrowMapping #BrowJourney #MicrobladingJourney #CosmeticTattooArtist #CosmeticTattoo #PermanentMakeup #BentOnBrows #AllAboutBrows #Brows #Microblade #Microblading #Ombre #OmbreBrows #BrowArtist #BrowBabe #BrowBoss #Entrepreneur #GirlBoss #PMU #PMUA #ILoveWhatIDo #ModelsWanted

shannasmendez. “I’m lonely.” My hubby said to me last night as we were getting in bed

“I’m lonely.” My hubby said to me last night as we were getting in bed. ... “Lonely?!?!?” I was legit flabbergasted. ... He went back to school last night, so he was gone from the house all day with the exception of one hour home for dinner. ... He was in stores and meetings all day and then in a classroom all night. ... He was also on the phone with family in Mexico a lot because his mom has surgery. ... The day before that he had been with us aaaaaaaaalllll day! ... It took me a minute to understand that he wasn’t “lonely” as in missing people, but “lonely” as in feeling out of place, misunderstood, and needing to “belong.” ... That’s tough. ... He and I have both discussed feeling this way for much of our lives. ... “No one gets me.” Is a common refrain for people like us. ... For me, I have gone through a process of first understanding that no one will ever understand all of me in all my ways. That’s the human experience. ... Then I had to learn to get really comfortable alone, sitting still, with my own thoughts and feelings, without judgment. ... Then I had to see that I have a global community of other humans who can relate. ... We don’t have to understand each other to relate. ... We don’t have to understand each other to hold space. ... We don’t have to understand each other to love. ... This is the practice of non judgment and unconditional love. ... And slowly we find those who are more like minded, those whose energy feels good with ours, those who make us feel good and clean and pure. ... So first, we have to belong to ourselves. ... Then we find communities to belong to. ... But it took an entire intentional process to get here. ... I explained to my hubby that now, I have to be active in setting aside those two hours each morning, before my little clinger monkeys wake up, to belong to myself - running, stretching, meditating, journaling, showering, reading - so that I can belong to so many others throughout my day. ... “I don’t even know how to begin.” He said. ... “With one small step. And then another. And then another.” I responded. ... How about you? ... Are you a misfit, too? ... And what do you do to manage your space? ...

My kids have been run all over

I’m so happy they’re still smiling. ... My kids have been run all over earth the last two days. ... We had to go to Costco last night for a battery for hubby. ... Then today we were out the door by 8AM (waaaaaay out of our slow lazy morning comfort zone) to take my aunt to a medical appointment a half hour away, and we had to hang for a few hours so we could pick her up. ... And we had a million places to go. ... Honestly, I think I can point to two primary reasons we maintained a pretty positive flow through all the hustle and bustle. ... First, I set my own self up for success by staying calm when frustrations rose. ... Running three miles and meditating before the girls got up made a huge difference for my mood. ... I see in real time what an enormous impact my energy has on their energy. ... Second, I built in fun treats for them along the way. ... Frozen yogurt at Costco, subway for late breakfast and ice cream for a treat. We also checked out animals at the pet store and got some modeling clay at Michaels. ... Yes they still had their moments, but I just kept coming back to my energy and held steady, tired as I am. ... I have to say in the choice between an extra hour or two of sleep or getting up for a run and meditation before the girls are up, the run and meditation actually make for a better day than extra sleep does. ... It has helped me to stay present and breathe through difficult moments in life changing ways. ... Now if I can just get my ass into bed earlier... ...

shannasmendez. It’s a strange kind of hell I’ve been through these last couple of wee

It’s a strange kind of hell I’ve been through these last couple of weeks, as the Shanna I’ve known, this marvelous Phoenix woman I’ve worked hard to become, slowly dies. ... It is a burning. A gutting. A visceral goodbye. ... I am able to somehow find peace even at my most frustrated. ... For the first time ever I am able to let go, or work toward letting go, things that’s aren’t mine to carry. ... I can observe most situations objectively, what once would have sent me into an angry frenzy, now I can check to see if I have any control over the situation, and also if it is mine to carry. ... I’m an alpha. I have always allowed that to make me controlling and a “fixer.” ... What a relief to see that there is nothing to control and nothing to be fixed. ... I’m having to realign and readjust everything I had convinced myself was real, everything that I was so sure mattered, everything I used as reasons to get worked up and worried, anxious and fearful, angry and hurtful. ... It all felt so real. ... And lately I’ve been noticing a split in the veil. ... “None of this is real.” I hear the whisper. ... And yet it’s all so obviously, tangibly, painfully, joyfully real. ... I have been, as they say “missing the mark.” ... And I think I’m finally much closer to actually seeing the mark, the point, the purpose. ... It starts with coming alive. ... I’m coming alive. ... #spiritualawakenings #joyfulliving #intentionalliving #thehumanexperience #selflove #selfcare #iamhere #bepresent #daretodream #daretobelieve #transformations #phoenix #comingalive #justbreathe #bestill #selfawareness #womanhood #womenofacertainage #happysaturday #femmeunfiltered
