Not everyone gleefully anticipates tinsel, presents under the tree, and holiday movie-marathons.

For some people, this time of year feels like a war of baubles and busyness they simply do their best to survive.
.
Check on your friends who have lost someone, who wish they had someone, who are new to the area and don’t have their people nearby.
.
Remind yourself of everything you’re grateful for from 2019.
.
Remind yourself of everything you’ve achieved this year: strengths you’ve built upon, wounds you’re healing, areas that you’ve been more true to yourself than ever, people you’ve helped, things you’ve created.
.
Set boundaries for self-preservation. ‘No’ and ‘Yes’ are your best friends when they are in line with your values and match the personal resources you have available to give.
.
Don’t take it personally. Many people are exhausted by this time of year. Nerves are frayed. People are running on empty which leaves little emotional bandwidth leftover. Lead with love, kindness, and cutting yourself and those you love a little slack 💖

When creativity comes from a vulnerable place it shows up it honest authenticity. 
It’s a scary place to be in this world as you don’t always know how your vulnerability will be received by others and what the consequences may be. 
Most often then not, for me, it’s been met by kindness, compassion and love. 
I can’t quite summarize what was said it that class but it was a lot. 
And if my vulnerability resonated with one person, it’s beyond worth it!
I have always struggled with the word gratitude but in this case I fully embrace the meaning. 
I am beyond grateful and honored to be able to teach, to have humans show up for me and listen  as I share my journey. 
The only way I know how 💙

Make your imprint! 
I wouldn’t change being different for anything.  Sometimes it’s a lonely place but it a place where I know everything is real. 
The best thing about being different is you’ll never forget me.

These are the things I need in a relationship to feel content AND I am not willing to settle.⠀
.⠀
We usually talk about the things we want in a relationship: trust, honesty, respect, etc...while these sound so nice and fluffy they don't translate into actual behaviors or into meeting our emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, experiential needs within a relationship.⠀
.⠀
Negotiables/non-negotiables on the other hand are much more useful. Our negotiables are the things we are willing to be flexible on. Our non-negotiables are usually those that are rooted in our identity, values and beliefs, integrity. These relate to the specific needs that must be met for us to feel secure and content within our relationships.⠀
.⠀
What are some of your specific non-negotiables? I've included a blank slide for you all to make your own! Make sure to tag me so I can share them on my stories!⠀

End of 2019 up ahead, a good time to feel into what is needed these last few weeks. For me, December is a month to go inside, find rest where I can, take time to contemplate all the growth this year, (since Jan is my birthday month, it feels especially appropriate) and to spend December in more quiet introspection than any other month. Even with holidays and Chanukah... and #artbasel and #designmiami and #artmiami 🎟
What are you needing right now, what is your intention for this month. Setting intentions each month invites a certain awareness and consciousness to all we do and are.

For every beautiful woman I envied, for all the old women I didn't see, for all the nights out I opted to stay in because I felt fat, for all the fat women I pitied, I am so so sorry. I will now simply smile in solidarity at so many women on the street. Because now I see that feminism is not about hating men, but in fact, simply loving each other no matter what gender. Loving each other with our eyes open to the consumerism that feeds and profits by dividing us.

I have NO idea what the future holds for us as mother and daughter, but I refuse to live out motherhood with an anxiety mindset
.
As moms we negative bond off the possible horrible outcomes of our kids—
.
“Enjoy it while it lasts” .
“oh she’s so cute mine are beasts now” .
“How old is she? Oh wait til she’s a teenager and hates you” .
I refuse to receive that from ANYONE.
.
Moms with younger kids, I encourage you to believe better for yourself and for your kids
.
I was NOT a good kid/teen but I don’t believe that I am damned because of it or deserve a child who misbehaves and is cruel
.
Don’t buy in to the opportunity to negative bond off of your kid’s future- neutralize it (nod and keep it moving) or offset it, kindly (I hear you, but I’m really not thinking that way)
.
Living in a space where you are thinking the worst is yet to come WILL give you anxiety .
Of course I have a healthy understanding of the future and the possibilities of it behaviorally for my kid
.
But I don’t live waiting for her to turn on me or impose that on anyone else
.
We really need to think harder about the power of our words and the impact they have on our world
.
Moms, your kids are going to grow up and I believe they will love you and be kind and sweet and awesome big kids, teens, and adults
.
Believe that for yourself too despite what the woman in line at five below tells you
.
Don’t be naive— but don’t create a self fulfilling prophesy either
.

31 years ago I wore this fleece on my first Himalayan expedition. After my climb I took up residence in Tengboche monetary to learn how to meditate. After weeks of training I asked my meditation teacher if I may stay here the rest of my life and he asked me why-I said “because I want to be in a Spiritual place” and he responded “the most Spiritual place you can be is out there in life, engaged in love, practicing compassion and learning to be grace”. He then patted my head and said “get up and get to work ❤️🙏💪 #Tengboche #meditation #vipassana #dharma #presence #vulnerability #sit #gettowork #bethechange @elli_rouse @dakkattack @drdebrouse @justinillig @mrudi5 @steve13hess @robinsharma

When I remember how much pain and struggle I endured to emerge on this side of peace and harmony on my inside, I choose business and pleasure based on 1 simple principle.

HOW MUCH PEACE WILL THIS DECISION COST ME?🙄💯🤔 _

My first book, #KnowingSelf by #VirgilEnesha is about my journey of becoming, and how much I had to go through, to attain a level of peace and stability (which to me, is a huge success). Buy this book for a friend, this Christmas. January 2020 will kick off with a #KnowingSelfChallenge 🏆$300 (N100,000). Tag a friend who should see this. It would blow your mind. 💥 💯💓💓💓

Some mornings the only thing between you and your darkness is the hot room and your mat. This yoga really works, 90mins later, through sweat n tears I can look myself in the eye and remember I am lovable! The only road to inner peace is to go in and make that truce! So much love to all of you on healing journeys today! #selfcare #selflove #intellectandemotionalchildtruce #iamlovable #forgiveness #vulnerability #honesty #26and2yoga #damnhot #sweatoutmydemons

I turned 32 yesterday. And it was such a great day. Time with family, time wirh my guitar, time with my guy. Is there anything more a girl could ask for?

Year 31 of Ally saw me at my lowest. And it’s also held some of the greatest highs I’ve ever experienced. I was sicker than I have ever been, and healthier than I’ve ever been. I experienced hopelessness and depression, and found hope for the future and am happy and grateful everyday. There has been deep darkness, and beautiful light. And I am thankful for everything I’ve experienced.

I can’t want to see what year 32 of Ally brings. My hope is that it brings more love and laughter. I know it will bring singing and performing. And lots of guitar playing. I plan to spend this year smiling and believing in myself and eating well and spending time with those I love.

Thank you for your birthday wishes. I love you all. ❤️

"Czułość jest tą najskromniejszą odmianą miłości. To ten jej rodzaj, który nie pojawia się w pismach ani w ewangeliach, nikt na nią nie przysięga, nikt się nie powołuje. Nie ma swoich emblematów ani symboli, nie prowadzi do zbrodni ani zazdrości.

Pojawia się tam, gdzie z uwagą i skupieniem zaglądamy w drugi byt, w to, co nie jest „ja”. Czułość jest spontaniczna i bezinteresowna, wykracza daleko poza empatyczne współodczuwanie. Jest raczej świadomym, choć może trochę melancholijnym, współdzieleniem losu. Czułość jest głębokim przejęciem się drugim bytem, jego kruchością, niepowtarzalnością, jego nieodpornością na cierpienie i działanie czasu.

Czułość dostrzega między nami więzi, podobieństwa i tożsamości. Jest tym trybem patrzenia, które ukazuje świat jako żywy, żyjący, powiązany ze sobą, współpracujący, i od siebie współzależny. "

Dla tego śniadania zrezygnowałam z połowy niedzielnych zajęć na kursie psychoterapii. Niemniej, ilość, uważności na drugiego i wrażliwości, która unosiła się nad zebranymi była tak poruszająca, że nie tylko nie żałowałam, ale wręcz trudno było mi po jego zakończeniu wrócić do przestrzeni technik i narzędzi. Tam było "bycie" i "bycie z". To już nie była sztuka i rozmowa o sztuce, to było doświadczenie szersze niż spotkanie kilku osób i intelektowi. Tam było serce. Bardzo się cieszę, że to serce dostało dodatkową porcję uwagi dzięki temu wyróżnieniu.

.
I stare at the trees at a distance
The back of the trees starts glowing brightly.
It's about night.
I wonder how warm i could have been if i wasn't the only person on this bench.
But I refuse to call other people.
Other people are good.
Other people try their best to understand me.
Other people still don't.
I refuse to call you.

I can count the people i confide to on my fingers
Even if i held out even two of them.
Holding back was never an answer.
My name was the life of the party once.
To your surprise,
It still is, many times.

The sky is playing with colours.
Mocking my limited palette.
Secretly jealous of the colours in my eyes,
And the ones which sparkle in my tears,
Or a smile.

The people who have seen me spill myself can be counted on my fingers
Even if i held out just one of them.
Not because i am ashamed of my vulnerability
But because i consider it a treasure beyond a price.
If you have seen me lay myself bare,
I will make sure you deserved every bit of it.

The sky is closing its lids now,
A little light escapes through.
I am warm enough now,
I think i will dial your number anyway.

7 unimaginable things I am proud of myself for 🙏🏼 . 1️⃣ The magnificent changes I have made in my life; for never thinking it’s too late to change or believing what other people have told me isn’t possible . 2️⃣. For pursuing my dreams & becoming friends with fear. Speaking and crying on stage in front of 100 people (whattt) for running my own women’s circles in my private space, becoming certified as a Life Coach to reading celebrities and influencers cards... who’d have thought... not me! . 3️⃣ My relationship with Jack who has seen me change MY WHOLE LIFE! I am eternally grateful that he doesn’t pack his bags when I tell him (and I’m sober) about my fairy and gnome spirit guides, how I am a Starseed from another planet who once had a life with the dinosaurs and travelled through time OR when I sage the whole damn flat most days and cleanse my crystals to rid heavy energies 🤪 tehe . 4️⃣. Being sober for 74 days today. There are times when I really miss the old reckless and carefree me who didn’t think about the damage I was causing my health or bank balance and thought the hangover was always worth it. It’s not just the not drinking to numb anything painful, it’s dealing with anything shitty sober... that’s an applause in itself . 5️⃣. The magical tribe I have called in, my fantastic clients, my one of a kind teachers, my network and my supportive and motivating friends & family . 6️⃣ My new outlook on life. The hard work I put in everyday to shift my old limiting beliefs. The affirmations I make myself say, the meditation, the journaling, the self talk to stop my ego or inner mean girl putting me down or talking me out of something. That is dedication and I’m the only one who truly holds myself accountable . 7️⃣. Starting this Instagram anonymously 9 months ago because I was sooo scared of what other people thought and their judgement of me, to now having my name and sharing with anyone and everyone what is real in my life including the ups and downs. Being authentic, vulnerable and showing that you don’t have to be perfect, that’s so not relatable or sustainable!! .

LOTS OF LOVE, what are you proud of today??? Tell me below 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

7 unimaginable things I am proud of myself for 🙏🏼 . 1️⃣ The magnificent changes I have made in my life; for never thinking it’s too late to change or believing what other people have told me isn’t possible . 2️⃣. For pursuing my dreams & becoming friends with fear. Speaking and crying on stage in front of 100 people (whattt) for running my own women’s circles in my private space, becoming certified as a Life Coach to reading celebrities and influencers cards... who’d have thought... not me! . 3️⃣ My relationship with Jack who has seen me change MY WHOLE LIFE! I am eternally grateful that he doesn’t pack his bags when I tell him (and I’m sober) about my fairy and gnome spirit guides, how I am a Starseed from another planet who once had a life with the dinosaurs and travelled through time OR when I sage the whole damn flat most days and cleanse my crystals to rid heavy energies 🤪 tehe . 4️⃣. Being sober for 74 days today. There are times when I really miss the old reckless and carefree me who didn’t think about the damage I was causing my health or bank balance and thought the hangover was always worth it. It’s not just the not drinking to numb anything painful, it’s dealing with anything shitty sober... that’s an applause in itself . 5️⃣. The magical tribe I have called in, my fantastic clients, my one of a kind teachers, my network and my supportive and motivating friends & family . 6️⃣ My new outlook on life. The hard work I put in everyday to shift my old limiting beliefs. The affirmations I make myself say, the meditation, the journaling, the self talk to stop my ego or inner mean girl putting me down or talking me out of something. That is dedication and I’m the only one who truly holds myself accountable . 7️⃣.

Stepping away from a situation, drama, conflict or relationship is often essential. It not only offers a clearer perspective but also stops the pattern of negativity. It’s good practice to be an observer around challenging situations... not everything requires a reaction. Have a lovely Sunday 🙌 -

3am conversations. My favorite thing. When you are both at that point of comfortable and you can talk about everything.  #nowalls .

Acabei de concluir um treinamento de 4 meses pelas principais áreas das cozinhas de produção e de serviço de um restaurante que tem 14 anos sendo premiado nacional e internacionalmente pela criatividade e excelência na execução da sua culinária: Maní.

São escolhidas 10 pessoas a cada 2 meses no país inteiro, para compor uma turma que apoia ao restaurante nos processos de produção e vivencia o percurso dos alimentos, desde sua chegada até a mesa do cliente.

Tive aulas de fermentação, chocolate, panificação, chá, café, entre outras. Entendi a “mágica” que os faz ter sucesso, a cultura da cozinha, a dinâmica das brigadas e as implicações de estar atrás dos fogões.

Diario de uma aprendiz na cozinha:
O preço da evolução.

Quando foi a última vez que você aprendeu algo desde zero?, dedicando-se  para valer, desafiando seu ego, perdendo status e expertise, sendo velho, torpe, devagar e ruim, atrapalhando os outros, sentindo frustração, insegurança e stress?

Como não há atalhos e a única forma de superar-se é a prática, dedicas exausto a isso teu tempo de descanso que não é muito; na cozinha trabalhas nos finais de semana e feriados, só falas de comida e ficas chato para teu círculo social e familiar; por tudo isso, a maioria dos cozinheiros que conheci falam da dificuldade de manter um relacionamento amoroso.

E vem as pernas inchadas, a tendinites, síndrome do túnel carpiano, dor nas costas, dificuldades financeiras... tudo o que os cozinheiros enfrentam a diario.

E por que fazer isso? Por que eu não desisti? porque foi a melhor oportunidade para saber se eu quero fazer isso “para sempre”, porque não todo mundo consegue entrar nesse programa, eu tive a sorte e me comprometí; por amor aos alimentos, porque a vida é entediante se não aprendemos, porque o esforço e só o preço que paguei por um belo processo intensivo de restauração interior.

E porque conheci pessoas que compartilham esse amor e ganhei novos amigos para juntar a minha lista “família escolhida”. Salve para os profissionais da cozinha que honram a farda, o alimento e o serviço, sou agradecida e privilegiada de compartilhar seu caminho.
