17 things that I learned in 2017: 1) Always love yourself because sometimes that’s all you have. 2) Always go for it if it feels right. 3) Always listen to your body. 4) Eat that treat you want. It won’t hurt, I promise. 5) Love isn’t easy, but it’s worth it. 6) Nobody’s looking at you. You do you boo and absolutely rock it 😉 7) Giving is more fulfilling than receiving. 8) Don’t stress out about the little things. It’ll all work out. 9) Get out of your comfort zone. It feels amazing. 10) Be adventurous. Life is more fun that way. 11) Face one of your fears. It helps so much. 12) Be yourself. 13) You’ll find your people eventually. It might just take a bit for your paths to cross. 14) Family is so important. 15) It’s okay to have bad days. 16) Don’t let anything hold you back. It’s just hurting your growth in the end. 17) Be the change you wish to see in the world. #2017isalmostover #2017 #thingsilearned #loveyourself #goforit #listentoyourbody #eatwhatyouwant #loveishard #youdoyouboo #giving #dontstress #getoutofyourcomfortzone #beadventurous #faceyourfears #beyourself #friends #family #itsokaytohavebaddays #dontholdback #bethechange

Not climate change but HAARP or is it climate change for everything else except a hurricane ・・・ Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // This is what a starving polar bear looks like. Weak muscles, atrophied by extended starvation could barely hold him up. Our @Sea_Legacy team watched as he painfully staggered towards the abandoned fishing camp from which we were observing@and found some trash to eat—a piece of foam from the seat of a snowmobile, as we later found out. People have asked why we couldn’t help it, why we didn’t feed it. In addition to being illegal to feed wildlife, polar bears like this one need several hundred pounds of meat to survive. They primarily eat seals and they struggle when they are stranded for long periods of time on land, without a sea ice platform from which to hunt. We didn’t have a weapon and we didn’t have any food for it. There literally was nothing we could do for him as we were hundreds of miles from the nearest Inuit community. What could we have done? What we did do was push through our tears knowing that this footage was going to help connect a global audience to the biggest issue facing us as a species today. It is true that we don’t know what caused this animal to starve but we are certain that unless we curb carbon emissions, sea ice will continue to disappear and many more bears will starve. With these images, we want to wake the world up to the imminence of climate change and to how it will affect wildlife and people for decades to come. For solutions on how each and everyone can make a positive impact on this planet #follow me at @CristinaMittermeier or go to @Sea_Legacy. #nature #naturelovers #bethechange #FaceofClimateChange #StopFossilFuels #NoArcticDrilling #TurningtheTide with @SeaLegacy. With @PaulNicklen and our entire team. Thank you @natgeo for helping us try and reach the world.

“After the game I’ll be serving dinner at a homeless shelter. Would you like to join me?” Huh.... Can you feel the long pause in my response? To be honest it’s been a long time since I have offered this, or really any, type of real service. In fact, I have been giving lip service to doing more volunteer service work, without putting much effort into finding where to serve. It hasn’t been a priority. But it’s time. Funny how things work. A service opportunity came to me. “Yes, I will serve with you,” I replied, and in doing so have received a great gift, the joy of giving. Thank you to the four men who included me in the team. You are a well oiled machine of cooking, comedy, camaraderie and compassion. Blessings to you and all those who serve, as well as those who are served. I believe I fall in both categories. As for me, I see the first item on my list of new year resolutions for 2018: Be of Greater Service. #bethechange #howcaniserveyou #blackandwhitechallenge Day6 #blackandwhitephoto #bossbabe #service #serve #dontmissit #homeless #newyearsresolution #blessings #blessingsonblessings #itstime #beofservice

Today’s session was magical. It’s days like today that I am reminded of just how much a gift this planet is that God has given us. The dolphins playing, people together, the epic waves, the beautiful sky... I was given so much today, and I hope the way I live my life says “thank you” in return. 🐬 #myhappyplace #dolphins #oceanlife #surf #surflife #creation #gratitude #free #wildandfree #freedom #sunsets #sky #waves #love #compassion #goodvibesonly #godislove #bethechange #animals #animallover #respect #respectforlife #respectforall #endanimalslavery #beauty #nature #wildlife #vegancommunity #plantbased #ditchdairy

#Repost @lovelymissjones (@get_repost) ・・・ #SparkSundays May this be the spark you need to push you forward this week... Often times we express how much we wish we knew then, what we know now. We may say, I wish I had a mentor or someone to teach me certain things when I was younger. Or we may say, I wish I had this particular program or organization in place that provided this particular service. A service that would’ve helped me to move further along in life... With that being said, imagine how those who are younger than us may feel. Imagine this next generation and those needs they may need to be met. We’ve experienced those very things. And we’ve survived! For that reason alone, we should be who we needed when we were younger. That mentor you wish you had, you can now mentor someone else with the experiences that you’ve lived through. That program or organization you wish you had, why not branch out and create it for those who are currently going through the same things you’ve went through. That thing you were able to overcome. Those behind us are in need. And we have something to offer because of what we’ve been able to get through. Many of you may have wished you had a little more support while you were in college.

Repost from- @sustainable.simply Is it weird that my compost is actually starting to smell good? Well smell less like rotting vegetables and more like soil anyways! Maybe one of you compost experts out there could help me out with something. I've gotten to the stage where the bottom of my compost is almost ready. I keep adding to the heap and turning it so the top layers aren't. Thus I have a conundrum. I'd like to use some of the compost on the garden soon but don't know how I will ever have any that's ready if I keep adding to it? I read that if I take a shovel of the black decomposed stuff and dilute it with 5L of water and leave it for a week, I can apply that as a tea. S.O.S guys any advice? ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #refillrevolution #zerowaste #plasticfree #plasticfreeliving. . . #money #success #business #shop #passion #environment #gogreen #realfood #farmersmarket #sustainable #sustainability #bethechange #bulk #mealprep #warriors #womeninbusiness #businesswoman #quality #courage #equality

I support the creation of pipelines. We need to build more pipelines, especially to tide water! Science is clear, pipelines are the safest way to transport oil. We also know that our oil is produced with some of the best safety and environmental regulations in the world. The world needs more Canadian Oil, not less! . . . . . #pipeline #agriculture #carbontax #energy #bethechange #hardwork #local #oil #oilpatch #oilfield #conservative #family #friends #localbusiness #rural #support #smallbusiness #urban #volunteer #community #listen #talk #balance #woman #mother #byelection #town #village #city #Sunday

Guess who finished her last day of 21 Day Fix Extreme?? — I have absolutely loved this program 😍 I will be posting a transformation picture tomorrow, so keep a look out!! — I will be starting a new program tomorrow. That’s what I LOVE about beach body!! I have access to tons of workouts 24/7. It’s so important to keep your body guessing because that ensures a constant increase in metabolism, and it helps growth in various muscles 💪🏼

I encounter these women every day. The figure competitor who lifts double what I do when we’re there at 3 am. The entrepreneur who works from her laptop, tablet and smartphone in the coffee shop while carrying on vibrant conversation with her partner. The mother who takes all four of her children grocery shopping on a busy Sunday, managing to keep all her good humour, and then some. The university student waitressing to pay her way, humbled and genuine in her every interaction. I could truly go on forever with examples of the women who inspire me in one way or the other on a regular basis, I take notice that often. May we be able to appreciate their perseverance & dedication, and grow to be them. 😘💪🏻
