Cleaning beaches with friends and hangin' with baby pigeons - not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning!  This Saturday 40 amazing women with @fromthehearttribe got together to Pick Up For Paradise. For 2 hours of pick up time we collected a whopping 4,198 pieces of trash .. and sadly there was still so much littered everywhere. We've ALL got to do our part to help this planet thrive, if we all do a little we can accomplish a lot.  Check out these amazing documentaries about our oceans for more inspiration and reasons why it's so important to pick up yer crap after a beach day. 🌏  A Plastic Ocean @aplasticocean  Chasing Coral @chasingcoralne  Mission Blue  #inspirebydoing #volunteer #love . 🌊 📸 by @belikethewind 💫 . . . 💖 . . . . 💙 #innerpeace #savetheplanet #saveouroceans #missionblue #chasingcoral #friends #babypigeon #pickupforparadise #yoga #onelove #dogood #compassion #smile #happy #inspiration #beach #ocean #animals #birds #onelove #earth #beauty #nature

Love this girl to the moon and back. 💖 Life is funny isn't it? We are taught to think that we "need" certain things in order to survive .. Sure , we need things to survive - water, food, shelter.. but our view of those things has become so elaborate that our vision is sometimes blurred. I am choosing to surround myself with people who keep me grounded. 📸 by @rikerbrothers 💖#yoga #handstand #balance 💖 . . . 🦋 . . #beyourself #fitness #friends #innerpeace friendship #love #happy #bridgepose #yogaeverydamnday #inspirebydoing

Floating camel pose.  I wanted to learn it because sometimes I wake up feeling a little heavy in my head - for whatever reason - and I figured if I could find a way to float - even for a moment - it might take a little pressure off.  Remember, love is just a word until someone (or something) gives it meaning. May your Monday be filled with meaning-ful encounters, moments, thoughts and things. Open your heart and fall in love a thousand times today ... 💜📸 by my guuurl @harmonieverett 💫 #love #yoga #friendship 💖 . . . . . 💜 . . . . #fitness #fitgirls #camelpose #floatingcamel #yogaeverydamnday #muscles #girlswithmuscles #strength #inspiration #mondaymotivation #monday #motivation #happy #smile #girl #body #openheart #innerpeace #innerbeauty #beyourself #fallinlove #yogachallenge #40 #40andfabulous #40andfit

Because it doesn't have to be controlled or contained. Because it doesn't have to be perfect. Because it doesn't have to look the way everybody else thinks it has to look. Because it can be free and wild and full of life and love.  Because it can be whatever you want it to be. Whatever you need it to be.

"And so she planted her own garden and decorated her own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring her flowers"... 💐 A guy picked some flowers at the canyon and handed them to me the other day and it made me think of when we were kids and letting someone know you liked them was with the smallest gestures.  It doesn't cost any money to put a smile on someone's face, a loved one, a stranger, anyone .. but I think as we get older we forget that and we put our self worth on what our wallet has to offer instead of what our soul has to offer and we let some amazing moments/people slip through our fingertips.  Of course I can pick flowers for myself but ... those small gestures from someone else mean the world. I still have the flowers he handed me in water just because it made me smile. It's the little things. 🌸 #itsthesmallthings #breathe #taketime #joshuatree 📸 by @harmonieverett . . . . 🌸 . . . 🌺 . . #topless #fitness #wanderlust #ontheroad #travel #friends #smile #girl #muscles #yoga #justbreathe #happy #happyplace #eyes #bluesky #cloudporn #cloud #beyourself #compassion #kindness #makesomeonesmile #itsthesmallthings #moments #sunshine #freethenipple

If I can find balance on the edge of a rock on the top of a mountain, I can find balance in my life ... 💜 A year ago I couldn't do this pose to save my life. I hadn't tried it since but I have been stretching. I decided on a whim to give it a try and holy crap, I can do it!!! Sometimes we surprise ourselves with what we can do  and sometimes we fall and have to try again, who cares it's part of life. 🦋 I have amazing friends. (Yes, I am bragging). I have ahhhhhmazing friends.  I have friends who are not afraid to laugh with me, climb mountains with me, try new things with me, give back with me .. and most of all, I have friends who are not afraid of my vulnerability.  Falling might not be fun but if it allows you to get up, stand up, rise up, and climb up the mountain a little higher, then I say it's worth it. 💜 📸 by @son_ofander  #friends #yoga #befree #yogachallenge #friday 🦋 . . . . . . . #happy #fireflypose #splits #flexible #strong #woman #fitgirls #mountains #theviewtho #inspire #motivate #bluesky #tittibhasana #inspirebydoing

"No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle" -#WinstonChurchill  What a ride! The horses, the views, the flowers after all the rain, the smell of nature, the company, the deep breaths ... the feeling of  connecting with my new friend, Grace who carried me up and down the mountain on her back. What an experience.  If you are thinking about riding you've gotta call or text Talley (619) 518-5828 and come out to Malibu @connemara_ranch. 💖 Thank you @laspeed for the magical experience. #horses  #horseriding #love 💫 . . . 🦋 . . . #malibu #california #happygirl #pretty #views #mountains #bluesky #safari

It isn't the exact pose we were going for but it still looks pretty cool.
