Sometimes you just gotta borrow a baby.. Was feeling a bit tender and raw today after saying ‘Goodbye’ to my favorite co-pilot @_shayman_ knowing there’s a decent chance, between our various overseas adventures that we might not see each for another 6 months. Contemplating end of seasons. Feeling super overtired. Then an unexpected invite for a quick beach trip with international acrobats @monikamoves and @douwes99 appeared and I went and hung out with them... Mainly to hang out with this little cutie. ‘Cause I was a little too caught up in my own story and playtime with a munchkin is a brilliant way to get present and be helpful at the same time. 😊 AND THEN the most excellent @joshnbg got home and we made tasty dinner and had brilliant juicy, whirlwind conversations that just so perfectly got me back into the magic of the flow. Mmmmm connection, it’s good! Thank you crew for being my team for today. So very very appreciated. ❣️ #globaltribe #adventures #newseasons #welcomed #nourished #followtheyes

George Taliaferro (born January 8, 1927) is a former professional American football player. He was the first African American drafted by a National Football League team. As the leading rusher and an All-American at Indiana University, he led the Hoosier football program to their only undefeated Big Ten Conference championship. The 1945 Indiana Hoosiers football team handed Fritz Crisler and the University of Michigan their only Big Ten loss, a 13-7 win for IU--in Ann Arbor. A three-time All-American, Taliaferro led the Hoosiers in rushing twice, punting in 1945 and passing in 1948. Taliaferro helped break the color barrier in sports, playing for the Hoosiers two years before Jackie Robinson suited up for the Brooklyn Dodgers. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1981. #Indiana #YESBHM #NFL #SuperBowl #BigTen #FollowTheYES #BGR8 #BlackHistory

I understood myself, merely after I destroyed myself. And only in the process of #healing myself, did I know who I really was. Paradoxically the ability to be alone, is the #soul condition for the ability to love. Something about this image captivates me and tells my truth.🖤 Trust the process. It’s amazing how quickly the universe will move once you have decided. #letgo #bali #soulsearch #bendsoyoudontbreak #imout #bye #followtheyes #universeprovides #yoga #temples #elephants #ohmy #livenow #experience #vibratehigher #lawofpositivism #hannahadamaszek @hannahadamaszek @law_of_positivism 🙏🏼
