BBQ Ribs Asian Style! I was super excited about this recipe because I was using an ingredient (5 spice) that I’ve never used before. Although the ribs came out fabulous in the end.......... too much water collected in the crockpot so the juices took FOREVER to cook down. I learned a lesson but I was not happy that night! Swipe to watch the videos of the process 🤷‍♀️ #ohwell #lessonlearned #itiswhatitis #stillyummy #ihatebeinghangry #liveandlearn #tastyrecipes #longisland #lovetocook #anyonecancook #foodie

Beautiful West, I forgot how charming you are 😍 #Fremantle #chill vibes #cuteplace #continueseducation #growth Continuing to be a student acknowledges that there is an infinite amount to know about the subject, about ourselves and about other people. Continues education and personal development, it keeps us vulnerable, and invites us to courage, because to be vulnerable and to admit we don't know it all takes perhaps the greatest courage. #thursday #lessonlearned I feel immensely blessed by all those teachers, mentors and lecturers in my life who teach me and help me to growth. Thank you from the bottom of my heart 💗 #contemporarymovementeducation #worktravel #pilates #yoga #matclass #teacherpilates #contemporarymovementeducation #thejourneycontinues

How to make a miniature razor blade tornado. STEP 1 - Drill a hole in something metal on the drill press. STEP 2 - put your hand(without gloves, for proper enjoyment) so close to the action that the metal shavings stuck to the bit can repeatedly slice your fingers. STEP 3 - slam your head against the wall for knowing better than to do Step 2...... . . .for the record I didnt cut myself this time, but I have many times in the past.... #lessonlearned #yourewelcome #psa #woodworking #metalworking at Fort Worth, Texas

I attended Tony Robbin’s Date With Destiny at the end of 2018 (an intense 6-day personal development seminar). After all the personal work I’ve done in the past years, I wasn’t expecting to be shaken up in such a profound way. . Over the past few months, I’ve been experiencing the impact of that week. In an effort to consolidate, clarify and deepen my learnings, I’ve capture my top 15 lessons—and I’m hoping they can inspire you too. . This feels uncomfortable, but once again, I’m braving vulnerability so I’ll be sharing one learning a day for the next 15 days. . Thank you for reading. . Lesson #1 - We can be playing the “victim” and have no idea we are doing it. . To my surprise, I realized there’s a part of me that likes playing the “victim” story in my head. This part is so sneaky, I had no idea I was doing it. . The victim voice has been blaming ex bosses, family or my husband for not being or doing what I thought they “should” (or what I thought I deserved). This part would think: Look at all the amazing things I do and no one notices, I deserve a reward! . It was painful to have this realization as I’ve NEVER seen myself as a victim. But what I learned is that when we blame others — no matter the circumstances — we become victims. There’s people that have been through horrific experiences, yet they don’t carry a victim story in their heads. They do their work, they channel their anger and frustration towards growth. They view themselves as responsible for their own wellbeing, instead of making their wellbeing dependable on other people. . Since attending the event, I have noticed “victim” thoughts creep into my head, but now I can recognize them and I chose not engage with them. . Do you ever play the victim in your head? Do you ever blame others or make your wellbeing dependable on how others are with you?

So I've spent several hours on this one today and most of that time I really didnt like this piece. I thought the color was great but the marks I was making were awful and just lots of internal moaning. Then I hit a stopping point, stepped back and saw this and I'm excited again. Lesson? Your brain isn't always as smart as it tells you. . #lessonlearned #decor #michiganartist #green #blue #line #wip #workingartist #wallart #workinprogress #fearlesscreating #creatingshapes #fineart #interiordesign

Today was “dress like a teacher” day, which meant I got to dress like a student. I’m pretty happy with the outfit I managed to slap together—it captured “bored freshman boy” with a surprising level of accuracy. My students were amused too, but I apparently crossed the line when I called one of them “bruh,” because they all groaned and scolded me. Too accurate, I suppose. #lessonlearned #teachersofinstagram #teacherlife #teachersbelike

It's not a race to find who you are, to find out who you are becoming or to find out where or who you're suppose to be. The fun part is the adventure in getting there, the journey we find ourselves on along the way. . . Stopping to smell the roses along the way, sometimes taking the long way and sometimes breaking for a short cut. Heck, sometimes we even just pause and stop for a bit to take it all in and look around. And all of this is OK. . . Our journeys are our own. No one can tell which turn is better, which way to go or which doors should be opened and closed. It's all with ourselves to figure that out. . . I've been on a self adventure for a little over a year and I am still figuring things out. I hit bumps in the road every week it feels, some small and some more like mountains that seem impossible to climb...but yet I persist and keep climbing. One foot in front of the other until you reach the top. Sometimes I move slow and think about every action other times, impulse and temptation takes over and quick decisions are made. They may not always be the best ones but they are shaping me into who I am and making me learn as I go. Lessons are ALWAYS being taught. . . It's not easy, no one ever said it would be, but it will be worth it. I have learned a lot about myself in the past 14 months...some good, some bad and some ugly. It's life, it's not always pretty but it's me. A beautiful, chaotic, soft, crazy, blonde haired, green eyed mess held together with love, sarcasm and happiness. . . Be true to yourself, go at your own pace, learn the lessons you need to teach yourself and always, always love yourself and be proud of how far you've come in your journey. . . #journey #adventureisoutthere #movemountains #chaoticmess #beautufulchaos #myjourney #teachablemoments #lessonlearned #dominate #indestructible #icanandiwill #determined #hustle #hardworkandhustle

10k fail 😣 I was feeling so dedicated, had planned a great route, the weather was simply perfect. Yet, 2.63k and I had to give up. The legs were not following, my calves and ankles were so painful, there was just no point and no other option but to stop and turn back, walking home 😔 What today taught me... even being a #slowrunner and a #newrunner, you have to stretch before and after every runs!

Marching from the depths and remnants in my dormant mind. Creeping out from far behind. I can't turn my eyes away. Trudging through the pieces of the past to measure my own name. Woah, I'm falling far behind and, I can't do this anymore. Woah, I can't make up my mind and my, my eyes can't see no more! Retrospect. Clawing through the soil of a dead trimmed garden. I dig the bones and skeletons of demons left behind and I can't turn my eyes away. It drags me down and pulls me in as I fight for my conscience. 🥀🕷️ #restrepose #retrospect #blackandwhite #blackismyfavouritecolour #bw #thursday #thosedays #humanitysucks #braindead #tattoos #piercings #girlsstuff #daydreamer #lessonlearned #music #musichelps #wheresmybeer #wheresmyfood

Bon jeudi😉 Si ton rêve est de devenir président, ne fais pas attention aux compliments qu’on te fait parce que tu es déjà gouverneur Ne te repose pas, keep going Souvent les flatteries cachent de la jalousie Ne compte sur personne d’autre que Dieu et ne donne à personne la gloire qui revient à Dieu, même pas à des gens qui te sont venus en aide, bénis les mais ne leur donne pas la gloire de Dieu #lessonlearned #helpmeornot #iwillsurvive #idontneedyou #itstoolate I cried before you on my knees and you rejoiced cause you were finally above #whateveryoudonow #togodonlybetheglory

#coffee (aka survival juice) It’s been a whirlwind of a week & coffee has kept me going! After the festivities, there was a lot of cleaning and laundry 🤣 Now, the hubby & I are driving up to Michigan for a kid-free snowmobiling adventure! ❄️ I did indulge in carbs for the party, but I’m back to fasting and the #carnivorediet as of Monday. It feels good to have my energy back and my mind is clearing up again too 💪🏻 Sure, the carbs tasted good but my asthma was bad (inflammation in my chest) and my body felt like crap. It was definitely not worth it #lessonlearned 😣 Anyway, I am so grateful for coffee!!

Times have changed for the worse, I don't recognize America anymore post 11 September 2001. This country is now broken, polarized, and divided in a detrimental and dangerous way. Half of "Americans" are not celebrating American Exceptionalism and the beacon of light and liberty this Nation once presented to the world; rather they are pressing for failed, freedom killing Marxist, Socialist, Communist, Shariah ideology. If only to return to the days as described by 🇺🇲 @remiadeleke. ° WISDOM from 🇺🇲 @remiadeleke - #thowback to when life was simpler- either you did your job with excellence and remained, or you sucked at doing your job and quickly disappeared. I wish this principle applied as much in the civilian sector/ #business as it did under logs. This concept of “everyone gets a pat on their back for showing up” is unhealthy for any business.

Words of wisdom for the day... No one will believe in you, if you dont!!! Are you confident in who you are? Are you confident in your skills? Are you confident in your dreams? Well you can be!!! Practice is all you need. I am certain that the things you do, and do over and over again are what you are confident in. I am scared to talk in front of crowds. Not because I haven't ever done it, but it has been a long time and I haven't practiced!!! I am afraid to forget what I planned to say, totally not confident. So I am planning to speak in front of a few people next weekend. A small crowd, with my script in hand. It is a start in building confidence. Who knows maybe one day I will be doing big events!! I better get practicing 😉 Tell me, how are you building your confidence? . . . #wordstoliveby #believeinyourself #confidenceiskey #confidenceisaskill #practice #keeponpractising #publicspeaking #shakinginmyboots #confidence #bigdreams #learningtheskillstopaythebills #lessonlearned #trainyourself #wahmlife #entrepreneurs #momtrepreneur #personaldevelopment #itsuptoyou #wannagofar #followyourdreams

WARNING: LONG POST ✨ This is definitely not what I planned to post today, but I truly believe it is necessary. • • As I was reading my devotional, it specifically addressed forgiveness. It spoke about how forgiveness is God’s tool to open up blessings for us, and how our relationship with Him began through forgiveness. • • Forgiveness also empowers you to love people in spite of the past. Leaders, teachers, parents, do you love those you lead? The same way God loves us despite what we may do to mess up? I can speak through my own life that forgiveness has not only given me healing, but healed and empowered the person I forgave. Also note, forgiveness and love are not only reserved for those people we like. This is where I need deliverance 👀🤦🏽‍♀️ • • Leaders, teachers, parents, coworkers, friends, family, are you forgiving? Are you being an example of how forgiveness can heal and strengthen? Have you considered that your areas of lack are linked to unforgiveness? • Extremely big shout out to my momma, who showed me daily the power of forgiveness through the way she lived as I was growing up. • • Like, share, follow @edu_caters 💫 • #eduCATERS #education #school #student #teachersofthegram #teachersbelike #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinsta #teachersofig #teachertribe #teachersofinstagram #iteachtoo #lessonlearned #lifelessons #forgiveness #love #letitgo

OMG!!! The horror...I did my makeup this morning. Love it. Took a hundred selfies. Then, looking at the pictures, realize that I FORGOT MASCARA! 😩😩😢😢🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤷🏾‍♀️😑 . Lessons learned: 1) having friends who also love makeup is essential, because my friend saved the day. 2) keep an emergency makeup stash at work. I always keep lip products and face powder in my purse. I need to include mascara and a brow pencil. 🤦🏾‍♀️ . #makeupmishaps #makeupmistakes #imstillcutetho #momswholovemakeup #playingwithcolors #makeuplover #ishhappens #nexttime #lessonlearned

This is for my people who feel like they have to have everything in place before God sends your spouse. What Glory does God get out of that? I used to feel this way. Yes, you have to do some work, but you don’t have to be perfect. Men why wouldn’t God send your help mate when you need help? 🤷🏾‍♀️ You can find love both in the valley and on the mountain top. Keep your heart, spirit, and eyes open. Ask God to remove the hinderances both external and internal. Let the counterfeits go. You don’t have to have all the answers. Don’t miss out! #love #lessons #lessonlearned #godisgood #relationships #wisdom #gogetit #winningseasons #godordainedrelationships #thursday at Atlanta, Georgia
