The sun is setting so early these days and I can't decide if I love it or hate it... on one hand I feel like it helps me end work and rest, and on the other hand the days feel so much shorter and more difficult to fit everything in!
.
Isn't time and our perception of it a trip?? All a construct to measure our trips in space, as we circle around a giant fire orb of light and heat.
.
Also- we're in space right now. Pretty crazy. #imsoberiswear
Currently: in line at In'N Out waiting for my grilled cheese and looking through old pics. Forgot about these polaroids from our @yellowco.co shoot back in August - and just like that I'm in love all over again 😍😍

Sometimes I write things on my hand when I really want to embrace them. Tonight, after a great founder series workshop with @fldwrktogether, I wrote these words on my hand.
.
At the workshop, I felt a voice telling me not to forget my vision. Not to forget or bury the things that make my heart beat fast, that make me angry, that I could talk about for hours. Not to forget why I do the work that I do, why I got into it in the first place.
.
I have a vision of a world where women from all walks of life and socioeconomic backgrounds are thriving. Where they're stepping out of fear and into bravery. Where they are living and making decisions out of fierce love. Where they have confidence in their abilities and voice. Where they can own their stories free from shame. Where they are respected by and working alongside men as equals, instead of being controlled and suppressed by them.
.
Because I so deeply believe in the unique power of women.
.
I believe that a world where women and men are equally thriving means a thriving planet earth.
.
I forgot that vision for a second- but tonight I was reminded. Now I'm trying not to forget.
.
What is your vision for the world?? What's your dream for this planet we live on?? What's that thing you could talk about for hours that makes your heart beat fast? I'd love to hear it and send you this little reminder not to forget it ❤️

This past week my beautiful Grandma Noel unexpectedly left us. I've been mourning all week along with my family. It's so hard losing someone you love. Death is weird. At one point you're here and another you're not. Its something every one of us will experience but a concept so hard to grasp.
.
My Grandma was a strong, independent woman from Brooklyn. She was a nurse, a healer, and she left a legacy of love and relationships. Every day there's a knock at their door from multiple people who were so sad to hear of her passing. Neighbors bringing meals, flowers arriving on the doorstep. She impacted so many with her genuine kindness, acceptance, amazing Brooklyn accent and beautiful smile.
.
Grandma was the life of the party. She was always in the middle of the dance floor at our family events. I'd like to think I inherited her awesome dance moves (even though deep down I know I'll never live up to hers) and hazel eyes.
.
Grandma- I miss you so much. Our hearts are broken you're not with us, but it's only because of how truly special you were. We will never be the same because of you and the legacy you've left us. We're better because of you. Thanks for everything. I know you're still dancing now, better than ever. Can't wait to see you again someday ❤️ #agnesnoelurbanovich

EMPATHY // Some days and/or weeks feel heavier than others. And so far, this one feels heavy. It seems like everyone I've chatted with this week feels it too. As someone with empathy as my #2 strength- the current news headlines, political climate, the #metoo posts and navigating my own life, story and relationships feels heeeaavy.
.
Empathy to me is a blessing and a curse. It can paralyze me and motivate me at the same time. It can make my soul feel so tired and yet it can help me feel the true, deep joy that comes only from knowing deep pain. I can sense another person's hurt and struggles from a mile away. I don't always choose to engage with it, but I always sense it.
.
Empathy is a gift I'm learning how to navigate in a healthy way. Any empaths out there have any tips on how to deal? I love that I can feel for others but also need to know how to not be paralyzed by it! I'd love to hear from you :)
.
PS: I'm so proud to be a woman in 2017. It's not easy but we have so much. We stand on the shoulders of giants. We can use our voices, we can speak up and make a change. And we are. We are coming together for good and I'm so proud of us ❤️ #metoo

Every photo that was taken of my at #yellow2017 I felt sooo awkward taking. There's a part of me that hates attention on me and wants to hide under the covers with a cup of tea. But there's another part that loves it. It's the weirdest thing. I want it all but I hate it all at the same time. All that being said- I'm super thankful to @dazey_la for the feature and interview- and although I felt awkward during our little mini photo shoot session- I loved it at the same time. If you haven't heard of @dazey_la check them out right now!! Thanks for having me ladies 😘❤️

Sometimes all it takes is a little Bon Iver background music to turn the simplest moments into precious memories. Made this little vid a few weeks ago after our weekend in San Diego. I know one day these simple, everyday moments will turn to distant memories. I want to hold these times and embrace this season in my heart as long as I can.

Sometimes we argue about the mountains and the beach. Which one is better or which one we should visit next.
.
I'm about the beach all the way- he likes the mountains.
.
The beach is nostalgic for me. I grew up there. I love the faint smell of seaweed, having salty hair and sandy feet. I love playing in the waves and diving underneath the big ones. I love the feeling I get after being tossed around by a wave- when it leaves a little bit of salt water in my nose.
.
Growing up- when I was sad, I went to the beach. When I was happy I went to the beach. When I needed to have a hard conversation with a friend- we went to the beach. When we had nothing to do on a Friday night- we went to the beach.
.
The beach fills me up in ways I can't explain. So getting to spend the entire weekend so close to it made me really happy- and so so thankful for the blue skies we have over here while the other side of the coast is struggling so hard right now. 🙏
.
Don't get me wrong- I love the mountains too, but the beach will always have my heart ❤️.
.
What about you? Are you a mountains or beach kind of person?? Do either of them speak to you in a way you can't explain? Do tell!! I'm taking a vote 😜😜

There are times for working hard, hustling and sprinting. Then there are times for rest. Learning more and more that rest is the only way to sustain your work. After getting hit with a bad cold this week- my body is forcing me to rest. Although I don't love it- I'm learning its importance. Give yourself permission to rest ladies- taking care of yourself allows you to better do the good work you were called to do ❤️ #bloomyellow
The dream team. My heart explodes when I look at this picture because every single human here has given so much, sacrificed, fought and achieved all for the sake of the greater good. Words can't express how thankful I am to have these wonderful people in my corner. Pushing me to be my best self, calling me out, believing in me and making my dreams their own. Nothing we do can be accomplished alone. SO SO GRATEFUL FOR THESE HUMANS AH MAH GAH ❤️ #yellow2017 #bloomyellow
