31 is just around the corner for me and here I am again assessing the path that I'm on. I've learned that it isn't about where I am on my path. It's about the direction in which the path leads. And I don't bother trying to tell people where I'm anymore. Most of them can only see where I'm at so it's best that I just get there and wave on my way by. Action will always speak louder than words. What are your actions saying about you? What impression will they leave when we're dead and gone? I hope they say that I'm truly just trying to make people happy with the gifts that I was given and that I inspired, motivated and entertained many. 📸: @photography_by_falicia at Sacramento, California
Am I being photo bombed by a painting??!!😂😂😂 This is my throwback to that singles mixer by @datemesacramento That was a fun night all around. You know, when I think about #ThrowbackThursdays, I don't just think about finding an old picture. I think about an old me. I think about the growth I've made and the lessons I've learned. I think about the mindset I was in at that time. Sell reflection is a crucial part of personal growth. Being honest with myself about my shortcomings and my flaws is one of the hardest things for me to do. Simply because my ego is always trying to cover up the smudges and the cracks, but it is those flaws that have made me better. Each mistake, every door slammed in my face or one more rejection is just another opportunity to grow. There is NO GROWTH without opposition. Are you brave enough to look inside yourself, find your flaws and bring them to the light? You might find out that happiness, success and growth all live just on the other side of fear. #tbt 📸: @theinvertednurse at War on Walls Studio
I'm 6'4" and when kids ask me why I'm so tall, I always tell them it's because I eat my green vegetables partly because it's true and partly because I love the look on their faces when they realize that growth is on the other side of their fears. But what's to be afraid of? When cooked properly, vegetables can be the most delicious item on our plates and it's so crucial that we eat enough as children and even as adults. September is food literacy month. Head on over to @foodliteracycenter page and see what they've got going on. They do so much for the community. This is the least we can do for them. Make sure you say hi to Amber Stott (@chieffoodgenius) when you get there. She's in charge and is doing a tremendous job. #foodliteracy #AcroYoga at Food Literacy Center
I don't usually smile this big, but when I do...wait.. Y'all know I'm lying. 😂 I'm always cheesing about something. This time it was @ashaurbanbaths cause the relaxation is top level over there. And now that I'm thinking about it, I don't take enough me time anyway. What's your favorite way to relax?

I never really know where life will take me no matter what I do to try to control the outcome. What I do know is that a positive outlook usually reaps positive rewards and vice versa. That's why I lead with a smile, look to be entertained (even if entertaining myself) and limit my expectations. Life is too fluid and I've been in this world too long not to have learned how to roll with the punches by now. So I'mma just sit here on this couch at this artist retreat, wearing my 70's hippie outfit from @costumejunction and sing while someone takes my photo.. Or not. Either way, I'm gonna have a good day. What's the last thing that made you smile?

A little #tbt to my 30th bday when my Hand to Hand wasn't that good. Lol. My hands were way too wide and my pop was fast, but somehow @theinvertednurse got up anyway (it was all her, she's amazingly strong). Thanks @abeelsayed for shooting and the commentary. Lol. The only reason we should ever look back is to learn from what we've been through. I sometimes forget that and end up getting just as mad about stuff as I was when it first happened if not more so. I have to recognize what's happening as soon as possible or I'll be stuck there. The 1st way to fix a problem is by recognizing there is one. We are never too old to learn and should look to do so as much as possible and we can easily start with our past. #AcroYoga at The Phoenix Sacramento
Self care is not selfish. "We cannot pour from an empty cup." I hear these words constantly, yet I continue to expend energy I don't have. I make time for the important things. I schedule meetings and events and Acro yoga jams, but nowhere in my schedule is there scheduled time for me. So I did it. I made no plans and no promises. I did only that which I desired to do and damn it feels good to be a gangsta. Some of y'all might not get that Office Space movie reference, but I don't care. Watch the movie. It's awesome. It's actually a funny play on taking time for yourself. Our energy is limited in this world. Each year we gain more friends, more responsibilities and sometimes more trouble, but our energy stays the same. This is why it is important to know when to say no. We must conserve our energy and use it for that which serves us best. Take care of yourself so that you can be the best version of yourself. You are amazing and YOU DESERVE IT!!! #ModelLife 📸: @mark_winter_photography at Winters, California
And for this way back Wednesday @theinvertednurse and I bring you our variation of box pose because doing the normal just doesn't appeal to us. We literally stepped outside the box and created something amazing. Had we let fear control us, this post couldn't be possible. Don't be afraid to try new things. I'm not saying go try to backflip off the roof if you can't even backflip off the ground. Know your limits and use the progressions to get wherever you desire to be. Accomplishing your goals doesn't happen over night, but it does happen if you're consistent. Keep fighting, keep pushing your limits and keep on keepin on. #HumpDay #AcroYoga at Sacramento, California
Life can get so busy so fast and we can easily become bystanders watching our own lives pass us by. Sometimes I just have to sit down an reevaluate my life direction and ask myself if most of my decisions are benefiting my ultimate purpose in life, which is to create more than I consume, help others find their way to happiness and enjoy my life. Self-awareness is crucial to growth because it allows us to look at ourselves from the outside and see what others see. We can only fix a problem once we've identified it and only if we are willing to change. If we never stop learning, we'll never stop growing and if we never stop growing, we'll never stop living. 💯🙌

I love this shot by @anjadouden and I've been struggling with a caption for about 45 minutes. I know. Weird for need to struggle with words, right? Nope. Struggle is a part of every journey. Even the pros struggle. There is no growth without resistance. We can only be as strong as that which has tested us. Every day, every week, every year that goes by is just another testament to how strong we are. There will be ups and downs, but that is only to create perspective. Things are only good because they can be compared to something bad. If everything was good, then everything would be normal and we wouldn't appreciate anything because it all would be taken for granted. Don't take your fortunes and blessings for granted. The best way to start being grateful for them is to recognize them. Recognize your blessings and struggles and know that it is in the valleys that we grow and every bad situation has an end. I have faced things a year ago that I thought were too much for me, and the year before that. I find strength in knowing that I have endured and triumphed over every struggle that has come my way and SO HAVE YOU! #WellnessWednesday

"Do What You Can't!" Here's a saying I hear from time to time that used to make me wonder because i wasn't quite sure of what it meant. Now, I know. Everything we've ever done, we've done for the first time some time. It's important to remember that because unless we attempt something beyond that which we have already mastered, we will never grow. And life is about constant growth. We're either growing or we're dying. Start Wherever you are with whatever you have and if there is not a way, make a way. Happy #SundayFunday and I hope you enjoy my #CrowPose 📸 | @theinvertednurse at The Westin Resort & Spa Cancun
It's #HumpDay and if you can just make it over to the other side, the rest of the week is yours. What is your hump and how are you getting over it? Mine was being over stimulated and stretched beyond my limits so I had to set stern boundaries around my energy. The power of no can be my greatest and very much needed ally. #AcroYoga #motivation at Pier 35
"To create is to weild the power of the Gods." 2 years ago I found out I was a creative person. I drew my 1st picture when I was 2. I wrote my 1st poem when I was 6. I starting changing the words to my favorite songs when I was 8. I wrote and performed my 1st song when I was 18 yet i found out I was a creative at 28 years old. This world marvels at the feet of those who can create yet they create a world in which creatives get tossed aside. I learned much too late in life that I was creative and now it's my favorite part about me. And here's the kicker. There's a creative inside all of us. We just need the courage to find it and let it out! 💪🏾🎨🖌️👨🏾🎤 #CreateOrDie at Sacramento City College (Official)
For 30 years, I've been a product of the life I was born into. Every decision made was made trying to run away from it. For 30 years, I've been unhappy with my current situation because it was never where I wanted to be nor where I thought it should be. For 30 years, I did whatever it took to be happy or overcome my situation. I have lied. I have stolen. I have cheated. I have deceived. For 30 years I have blamed others for causing me to do these things in order to escape my own reality. For 30 years I have hurt people I care about and most importantly, I have hurt people who care about me. Why did I do these things? Was it because there was no other way? Was it because my hands were truly forced? No. It was because I never took control of my life and accepted responsibility for the things I did. And after 30 years, I finally did something that hurt my best friend and ultimately myself. This is why I haven't posted in over 30 days. This is why I decided to take a hard look at my own part in where my life is and accept responsibility for it. I was blinded by the enemy I never knew I had. This enemy started out as a friend who protected me when no one else was there, but it didn't stop there. This "friend" helped me build walls around my heart which kept danger at bay. But these walls also kept allies away. Those who didn't wish me harm. Those who cared for me. Who fought for me. Who loved me. This "friend" hid where I could not see him. Now, that I see them I wonder how I never saw him before. The answer is I never needed to. Not until now. And, had things worked out differently, I probably still wouldn't see him, but I see him now for the enemy he truly is. This "friend", my ego, is the enemy. Now I must tear down every wall he has built in my name, starting with the one around accepting responsibility for what I have done. While my ego has deceived me, it was still I who trespassed against others. I have done many terrible things in my pursuit of happiness. All I can do now is improve. To think we are ever done learning is to die while we are still breathing. Life is a journey. We cannot control how it begins, but we can control how it ends. at Planet Earth
The definition of the word limit is the final or furthest boundary or point. This to me sounds like the impossibility of moving forward. Yet, I have heard this word used a thousand times in my life, and when I really think about it, I have never really seen a true limit. We've put people on the moon. Numerous records have been broken. Every plateau has been surpassed. This tells me one thing. The only true limits are those we place on ourselves within our own minds. If we convince ourselves that we cannot do something or we cannot be something then we will never do it nor be it, but if we look at limits as a standard of measurement then we continually prove the notion that there are no limits. There are only goals we have not reached yet. If you've ever thought about trying #AcroYoga then I want you to RSVP for my Tuesday AcroYoga jam. Find out the truth about where your limits truly lie. 📸 @dreyerpictures at Salmon Falls Bridge
Finally got the @westwinddiandpm video done and uploaded to @YouTube. They have some great titles playing like Jurassic World and The Incredibles 2. You can bring your own food, but they have plenty of you're like me and HAVE to get AUTHENTIC movie popcorn. 😂 Anyway, be a tourist in your own city. There are so many hidden gems in Sacramento. The City of Trees is no place for couch potatoes. Life is made to be lived. I hope you like this short clip and the full video. Thank you all for the continued support! 😍💯 #DriveInMovie #ad #visitSacramento at West Wind Drive-In and Public Market
Best seats in the House. Why? Because I came early! It was totally hashtag Worth It. Plus I had to get something to eat, obviously. Fridays, and Saturdays are perfect to go, but I hear that Tuesday's are really popping. Probably because it's family night. [[LINK IN BIO!]] Don't forget to SWIPE RIGHT 👉🤜 to see those other pics!

I don't know if you know this about me, but I'm a professional movie goer. No really! I LOVE the movies. Ask @theinvertednurse and she'll let you know.
I've seen all the Jurassic series and wasn't about to miss the Jurassic World movie premier at the @westwinddiandpm [[LINK IN BIO]]
which is more than enough to get me out of the house. And they have everything I could want.

I mean what more do I need?..DATE!! I can't forget that! 😂
Movies are always better when they're shared.
