“It’s important to remember to always make yourself a top priority. It’s when you take care of yourself that you are more available to impact those around you. In patient- centered jobs like mine, it is easy to lose sight of this especially being surrounded by those who are suffering from sickness. But those we impact need us to be strong for them, otherwise we all will fall.” — @erin.turingan 🙌💕✨

Readers! I have a question for you.
When you’re reading, does the story plays like a movie in your mind? Do you visualise what you read? Or more like a picture? Or you’re imagine nothing at all? 🙈
I am genuinely so curious! The other day my husband read on reddit that not all readers visualise while reading. I am a bit surprised because I thought everyone do. Yet those who don’t still able to enjoy the story perfectly fine. Let me know ♥

What is one small thing that makes you happy? - Hot water bottle!! Couldn’t survive winter without it 😬
#gifted // thank you to @pushkin_press for the copy of “Glass Town Wars”. I am not usually read sci-fi, but I’m willing to give this one a go, as it’s interesting! We will see how I will like it :)
Happy Sunday love! I did a little painting session today, and it’s so much fun! Ha! Anyway.. take care!! ♡
Maybe you don’t need those empty spaces to fill up, maybe you just need to see them. See them for all that they are and embrace that reality. Maybe in that embrace you’ll find more blessing than you dared consider. Maybe just maybe a perspective shift is all we really needed.
"Don't let free will be an unconscious choice" has become one of my favorite quotes recently. 💎💎
I was writing an essay this morning on the power that you have to set the tone in your life. Once I finished I flipped through my notebook and came across the page in this picture. 💎💎
It is a quote taken out of context from a little book titled "Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand.
Conscious intention births the idea of the tone... Behavior sets the tone... Consequence breeds the results. 💎💎
Results emerge from trial and error. Persistence to change until the desired outcome is attained. 💎💎
This made think and to look deeper at the versions of me that wasn't willing to take the necessary steps to truly change. There were parts of me relentlessly avoiding the discussion of consequences. 💎💎
This created chaos in my life. 💎💎
Today I love this concept of consequence. I see it everywhere. Consequence is the driving force within the hero's journey. It's something we all must face, especially in this world that we live in.
What are the consequences of being a perpetrator? 💎💎
What are the consequences of being a victim? 💎💎
What are the consequences of being a bystander? 💎💎
What are the consequences of being a liberator? 💎💎
I'll leave you with these deep questions to ponder. And beyond that I prompt you to feel into the ripple effects of how you're setting the tone for yourself and those around you. What are the consequences and do you like it?
“Your heart’s strength is measured by how hard it holds on. Your self worth and faith is measured by finally letting go. However, your peace is measured by how long you don’t look back.” It’s hard to move forward when you’ve been wronged, when the universe takes what it wants and will never ever give it back. To leave hurt and happiness to chance, to lunge for the impossible, to fall and fail miserably. Every moment is a possibility a chance to better yourself. And it is so hard to crawl out of your own personal pit. The weight of that pain could kill you, in order to heal you must get a grip on your demon whether it is depression, anxiety, PTSD, substance abuse. You have to live with this demon but you can chose whether or not to wake up next to it. Don’t give it power, feel it, recognize it, and do something about it. Do the opposite of what it wants, it doesn’t control you. Make meaning, push forward, burn the bridges of your past. Tell your demons to kiss your ass and let your past be history. Live in now, breathe in the moment, because every moment is worth it and so belonging to you. Let it go. #inspirational#inspireyourself#mentalhealth#mentalillness#depression#anxiety#dysphoria#personaldemons#perseverance#strength#letgo#makehistory#liveinthemoment
A new Instagram post! Finally!👏🏼👏🏼 Double tap if you feel the content upkeep struggle 😴
I haven’t posted in awhile because I have been so busy updating and rebranding my blog. Ive decided to call the new blog Anishinaababe and I will be changing my Instagram name to this as well! 💫
But why the new name? Ive decided that I want to start giving back more to all my followers, and I want to create more inspiring, interesting and beneficial content. I want to focus more on health + wellness, spiritual wellness and teach more about my culture! 💫
As for the beneficial content...I have been diving into some amazing books that have really been changing how I view life. 📚They have provided me with things to incorporate into my everyday routine to achieve my dreams. If you want to manifest your dreams, success and happiness this new year these books are a must read! I am in the works of a free list for you all, but if you would like early access comment down below! ☺💕 #huntsville#bookstagrammer#healthymind#lawofattractionworks
Be grateful for what you have today and focus on your own path. We all deserve to celebrate the diversity in all of us and the joy that comes from owning, appreciating, accepting and loving all parts of us. The good, bad and ugly...cause is it really that good, or really that bad? Or truly that ugly? When we can give this to ourselves (love) imagine what we can give to others (love).❤️✨🙏
The gathering place.
I want to invite you to my house tomorrow night to gather for dinner. Bring a friend, eat a free meal, and ask as many questions as you would like. @briebeeks and I will be doing a quick demo on healthy living. Invest in your body, your future self will thank you. Message me with questions and details.
Sometimes we need this reminder so we can give ourselves permission.
I recently had to remind someone close to me that it's okay to ask for help. We all forget sometimes.
I've been there, I get it. It's not easy, especially depending on certain relationships. We want to be able to do things by ourselves, have an accomplishment that's all ours, or maybe pride gets in the way.
But at some point, whether in your work, personal life, or improving your health, *everyone* needs help. That help can take all shapes and forms, but everyone does.
As soon as we realize that, and that we're in this thing called life together, the sooner we can succeed and help each other rise to the top. There's enough room for everybody.
There's nothing to be ashamed about it; actually, it can be the powerful thing to do. Letting someone make the road a little easier and refusing that can be a limiting mindset.
I hope you join me tonight for a zoom meeting I'm co-hosting with some other incredible women. We've all helped and supported each other in our health and life journey, and we want to help you too. Let us help you make health easier. Health doesn't have to be hard.
If you've been struggling with your health, this community could be the 🔑 to your success. Don't miss out, boo 😘
Starts 6:30pm PST/9:30pm EST 🔗 in bio to join, meeting ID: 842 506 657

Something I struggle with ever since becoming a mom is consistency.
I honestly hate to admit it, but I know that once I openly talk about it I will hold myself more accountable.. so there you go. 🙈
Being a family of 5 not every day is the same around here, ever. we have our share of ups and downs and between raising kids, owning a business, and never really having a break from it all— I’d say we do pretty darn good despite those inconsistencies.
if I was to look at the negative in what I didn’t do today (like cooking dinner, or reading all of my kids that book again, and of course missing out on bath night) I wouldn’t see this adorable-ness in my kids falling asleep on the couch after a long day or the joy in all of us laughing together at the end of a long stressful Monday while we all eat a mix of cold cereal, leftovers, and cheese and crackers for dinner.
The more I’m growing on this whole journey I have come to the realization that as parents we don’t always need to be “all of the things” in all of the areas, especially all of the time.
It’s completely impossible to not get burnt out and to not veer off your track sometimes when life is being everything but kind to you.
Feelings are normal and so are bad days, it’s important to remember that.
Sometimes the nights on the couch and the nights when you don’t cook, are ultimately the best nights.
Being consistent in love, in care, and in time with my family is what us parents strive most for and at the end of the day what truly matters the most.
Us tired parents need the reminder more often that we’re doing a good job. So here is a reminder for us all.❤️
