  •   nicolemilesphoto I have so many mixed emotions about it... My guy does so much better with a consistent routine so the regularity of the school year helps a lot. The transition to summer is rough. But summer mornings at the skate park, swimming swimming swimming, and warm evenings outside are dreamy. Friday was the last day of school, so naturally my son broke his arm this week and is in a cast from wrist to armpit for a month... So keeping him entertained with limits on his activity will make the transition even trickier. But it has been a ROUGH year at school and he could really use some carefree kid time. Yeah... Mixed emotions... 😀😧😎 5d

  •   natalienorton @rpepperclark @fergerson @nicolebutlersmith @paige__holley @brookenorma Like 2 years ago, I ran into a guy we went on Heritage Tours with, and he asked me if I had "and HTR back in '99." I was like, "a say what?" Apparently it's a real "thing," and it stands for Heritage Tours Romance. Now I feel robbed. Like I didn't get the full HT experience! 1w
  •   natalienorton *an 1w
  •   paige__holley Haha!! I didn't have one either!! 1w
  •   nicolebutlersmith What's the girl version of a bro-mance? Maybe we could count something like that? 1w
  •   rpepperclark Ha ha ha yeah I never had a HTR either... I think we'll have to go with @nicolebutlersmith idea!!! 1w
  •   brookenorma It was a thing! But I didn't know about it until my sister went the next year! 7d
  •   diana1ee Nicole- I'm here! I'm just quiet;). We tried to have a HTR. Remember Tom? We just ended up embarrassing him a bunch. I loved that trip. It changed my life. 6d

natalienorton Are you addicted to drama and/or fuss? If you're like most people, your automatic response will be, "ha'il, NO." But do yourself the kindness of taking a genuine self inventory. Do you find yourself feeling bored, aimless or even depressed when there isn't a fire to put out, a deadline to meet or a problem to solve? Do you ever find yourself feeling anxious or worried for no reason? Do you find yourself constantly replaying past challenges and/or speculating about future ones? Do you find yourself consistently reaching into other people's lives to help them solve their problems, offering up advice, mulling over their struggles in your free time? (🏽 not necessarily a bad thing to be empathic and engaged, but is this tendency at the center of many of the most important—or even the peripheral—relationships of your life?) In an age of nearly incessant stimulation, we can easily (and unknowingly) become addicted to the constant barrage of input. Then, when we hit a phase of stillness, rather than resting and recuperating in preparation for what life's got coming our way next, we can find ourselves feeling antsy or anxious and worried for no reason—this is our brain's way of telling us that it's hungry for the stimulation to which it has become so unwittingly accustomed/addicted. We then answer this "antsy-ness"/anxiety by binging on Netflix, eating unhealthy (generally refined/sugary) foods, solving other people's problems, aimlessly searching the web or messing around on our phones (maybe we even find ourselves doing more than one of these things at a time). We need times of mental quiet/rest in order to be at our very best (and happiest)—as parents, partners, business owners, friends...whatever the roles of this phase of our lives, we serve both ourselves and others by nurturing times of quiet and peace. I believe that the majority of our lives are meant to be spent in a state of genuine happiness and calm. Crap's gonna fly, to be sure, but we don't have to roll around in it. We can learn to manage struggles as they arise and then return to center—to the happiness and calm that is ours for the taking...the happiness and calm we (yes, YOU) deserve. 2w
  •   maraleblanc Amen. 2w
  •   danaleek @brookmora this is my fav girl! @luannandersen follow her too! 2w
  •   mudandbralettes Such true words. 2w
  •   melanieburk I love this so so much. I've been thinking a lot about this lately too!! About being still and calm. Today was one of those days and it felt good. 2w
  •   charlottesmithbeck Wow. Self inventory, this totally speaks to me and I feel a desire to take notice and make good change. 2w
  •   natalienorton @melanieburk I forgot my phone today when I was out and about. I had to sit on a bench outside of Walmart for about 30 min waiting for Richie (couldn't call him). It was AMAZING how tuned in I got during those 30 minutes I normally would have killed by messing around on my phone. . . It was sooooo good for me. I actually got emotional (to the point where some nice lady pulled her minivan over to make sure I was all right ). I think we (I) vastly underestimate the power of solace and calm. 2w
  •   natalienorton @charlottesmithbeck I loooove uuuuu 2w
  •   gabismyth @natalienorton Same as @charlottesmithbeck. She shared this with me the other day and I can't believe how much this resonates with me. Having an awareness that this is even a thing helps me identify a lot of things I don't like in my life. Thaaaaank you. 2w

natalienorton The older I get, the more grateful I am for everything that she was and is in my life. She taught me to "make it right," always, no matter what that required. She taught me to be honest and kind. She taught me to look out for the underdog and to never speak ill of a soul behind their back (no matter how much they may have deserved it). She taught me to be myself—in a sea of sameness—to be comfortable with who I am and the values that I've chosen to represent. But above all, she taught me that there is no greater calling, no greater title or honor to which I could ever aspire than that of mother. I love you momma; Gavin and I are so blessed to be yours. 3w

natalienorton Go places. See things. Make it a priority. Don't be a victim to financial circumstance—get well versed in "travel hacking," put a little away each month (whatever you can afford), but just make it happen. 3w

  •   unmistakableceo @joshsolarlovesyou yep :). Looking forward to meeting you 3w
  •   alma.carrera @jenbebb @joshsolarlovesyou your insights are really helpful. I live un México so it would be so interesting to go down there and have such an amazing experience, with the speakers alone it already sounds worth it. So, do you guys think this would be a good conference if I'm still confused about my dream and how to make it happen? 3w
  •   jenbebb @alma.carrera yes, absolutely!! Many people have come to What If unsure of what they wanted and/or how to make it happen. One thing this community does well is listen then help you find clarity in both your dreams and in what it takes to achieve them. Once you know what you want you will have a loud and generous team cheering you on and helping where they can. 3w
  •   joshsolarlovesyou @alma.carrera absolutely. first year my wife and I learned exactly what we wanted to pursue in life after we left. we had some setbacks and such throughout but over the last three years now have continued to refine our life's vision and had people to bounce ideas with back and forth as well. all from what if. it's so good. 3w
  •   alma.carrera @joshsolarlovesyou I'm totally trying to make it happen. Thank you 3w
  •   theycallmeair oh man, i need to social media more often, is this offer still live, or did i miss it?? 2w
  •   natalienorton @theycallmeair I don't know! @jenbebb 🏼 2w
  •   jenbebb @theycallmeair message me :) 2w
