I let the kids get in the car while I grabbed one last thing from the house, and then off to school. .
I came back and Isaac had put “tilak” on!!! . 😆😆I asked him “why did you do that?” He said “because I was wondering what was in that little jar, and then I saw the powder, and I have seen you put it on like that before” 🥰🥰 .
I asked him, “do you know what that’s for?” and he shook his head No. .
I think it’s important that we know what we are doing, even if we start out just mimicking our role models and people who inspire us, we should KNOW why we partake in the rituals! .
So I told him, you have anointed yourself to say or show that you are a servant of God. Are you a servant of God? .
With a firm and confident voice he said, yes. And smiled real big!!!! .
I really really love this child!!! He has such a natural inclination for devotion and love of God. .
Doesn’t mean he is perfect or an angel or really austere or anything super genius or ultra spiritual.... but he is really something special in my book... he reminds me on the regular to love God, to serve God, and to show my devotion to God.
Thank you Isaac , for being my example today 💗 #momlife#devotion#bhakta#bhaktiyoga#ritual#annointed#blessed#happy#joyful#spirituallife#spirtuality#myson#rolemodel#eachoneteachone
Can we talk a minute about self image? Who else out there might look at themselves in the mirror and think 😳 ewwww! I’m so gross?!?! Who else waves at someone twice? With their hand and also arm fat that is giving a wave?! Hi 🙋♀️ I do 😂 no one sits around and tells me I’m fat, or ugly or not as smart as the next person! I do that all on my own. Why 🤷♀️ how can I be so hard on myself when if I heard someone I loved talk about themselves that way, I would throat punch them 🥊 there it is right there 👆 “if someone that I loved” meaning what?! I don’t love myself!! Yassss that’s it 🙌 I’ve said it before in my blog, that after rehab I walked away with self love and self forgiveness. But that doesn’t mean I don’t struggle to feel those things everyday! How can I look at myself with disgust when I have a little boy who looks at me like that 👆 yes with food on his face and all 🤷♀️ my son doesn’t see fat or skinny, ugly or pretty! My son sees someone that makes him laugh and dances with him, even when I look ridiculous 💃 my son sees someone that loves him and feeds him and keeps him warm and entertained (even if that means watching @blippiofficial on YouTube 🤷♀️ my point is my son still has innocent eyes, and hasn’t been corrupted by all the stuff we see on social media. So why can’t I change my eyes to see innocence again 🤷♀️ so I looked in the mirror this morning and told my reflection all the things I know to be true about myself, not the things others have said about me, but what I know in my heart is real! I am funny. I am smart. I am a good mom. I am a good daughter and sister and wife. I am pretty! I have a big butt! And with some help from the gym I’m gonna have a great big butt 😂 take back your own self image! Reinvent yourself! Love yourselves! That’s what I’m over here trying to do 🙌💃😘 #selflove#soberissexy#myson#livingmybestlife
