#bravenotperfect

Do you trust your kids?
I’m trying so hard to teach my tweens to be #bravenotperfect and to trust in themselves while still being cautious. But sometimes my anxiety gets the better of me. Thankfully when deep breaths don’t work, the Universe will poke a little fun at my fears and give me a chance to focus on what I know to be true. 
Last week my son watched with a smug look as three girls jumped into the water just a few feet from where I was insisting he get off the ledge before the wind sent him to his death. In my defence there were rocks directly below him but we laughed together at my worry bully then compromised letting him sit instead of stand on the ledge. Then I walked away, letting him enjoy his new treasured spot and to ensure he knew I trust him.

Yesterday when fear and worst case scenarios started creeping up again, I caught myself and expelled the anxious energy with exercise because they’re my fears, not his. 
Parenting feels a lot like walking on a steep ledge, with the pressure to protect them from danger lurking everywhere. But when we really look with wise eyes and a trusting heart, we can see our children, especially the #spirited #highlysensitive ones are here to help us call on our courage to move through the rocky terrain—trusting in the beautiful treasures we will discover together.

Deep breaths as we ride the waves of back to school anxiety in our house, remembering what is true—we’re doing the best we can #perfectlyimperfect. We always get through the tough times and so do you! 
Big hugs to you for any kind of transition you are going through. Trust yourself. Trust in the goodness of the Universe. And when anxiety gets the better of you because sometimes it does. No matter how many tools you have (and Lord knows I use and share a lot of coping tools); be gentle with yourself. Conscious parenting, healing and evolution are life long journeys.❤️ Nicole .

Today’s project: testing out a lined pouch pattern for @play.full.nature retreat swag. About halfway through, I realized that I failed to follow the instructions correctly. Doh! #bravenotperfect

“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
In February, climbing this arete would have felt impossible. Now it still took some time to get my courage up but I did it (and actually quite enjoyed it as well). Some days I feel like I’m not improving at all and even getting worse with every session. I need to remind myself how far I’ve come in a few months and that slow progress is always better than not trying at all. 🙌🏻🧗‍♀️ #bouldering #bouldern #wallclimbing #rockclimbing #climbingrocks #climbinglife #klettern #boulderingbabes #timetoclimb #boulderingrocks #bravenotperfect #strongnotskinny #fitdurch2019 #womenwhoclimb #nomeatathlete #poweredbyplants #bouldering_pictures_of_instagram #climbing_lovers #climblikeagirl #progressnotperfection #veganclimber #pullingonplastic #climbon #doyouclimb

Some motivation as we head into Wednesday.
.
What will it take for you to #overcome today? And I’m not even talking about overcoming some huge obstacle or setback. I’m talking about overcoming the urge to QUIT.
.
Maybe you’ve committed to reading, journaling, exercising, eating healthy. Maybe you’ve committed to positivity or refusing to let hurtful words come from your lips.
.
Maybe today you’re tired of trying.
.
But the answer is not to quit. The excuses you can give yourself are so convincing.
.
• I just don’t have time today
• It’s too hard
• I’ll just bend the rules this one time
.
Press on. Gear it up today. Press past Wednesday and the carry your momentum into Thursday. The race isn’t given to the swift or the strong, but to the one who ENDURES til the end.
.
Endurance. Consistency. Integrity. I want my life to be marked by these things. But the work is on me. The work is on you.
.
Let’s do this today. Let’s live with intention. What are you going to do today that will get you one step closer to your goal? What do you have to push through to get there?
.
Tag a friend that will hold you accountable and encourage you to keep going. Life is better together ❤️

Are you going through a hard season? Do you feel like you’re drowning in struggle after struggle? Do you sometimes ask yourself, “Why is this happening TO me?”
.
Same crew, same. @MrPrestonParker + I have been there, too. Going through hard situations in raising our son with autism along with the stress, frustration + so many tears that we’ve shed along the way have been tough. The season that you’re going through right now might be tough, too. But crew — so are YOU!
.
🎙 In this week’s episode of The PnJ Podcast, we’re talking about “Finding the Good In a Hard Situation” — a thing we’ve struggled with throughout our relationship + in our own lives as individuals. The thought of focusing on the good instead of the not-so-good has helped us to embrace the idea that this hard situation is happening FOR us. Our hope is that shifting your perspective within this rough time will help you search for the blessings that are always there.

Anyone remember that show Extreme Couponing?

Trivia Tuesday Time. 
In my past life-as in right after we got married and had no money-I was an extreme couponer. 
Like, we had an entire closet full of shampoos, body wash, razors, make-up...pretty much anything that was sold at CVS or Walgreens....all for free or if I did pay anything for a trip, I never spent more than $5. 
I would coupon at grocery stores too, but once we started eating healthy it was super hard to do since most coupons are for processed food-which we mostly avoid. 
But, I would shop the sales to maximize my grocery budget...AND I STILL DO! 
If it’s not on sale, we likely aren’t eating it that week. 😂

Y’all. 
My point is. 
I LOVE a good sale/deal 
Especially when it’s on healthy items! 
Like...a sale on my MOMMY JUICE! 
Y’all message me all the time asking about my mommy juice & I love it! 
Tonight my tribe is having a flash sale & if you’ve been wanting to try my mommy juice—Now is the time!
Let me know if you want in, y’all! 
So fun!❤️

Last Thursday I did an IG takeover on the @createyourinnercircle Page. I talked about a lot of things I don't generally address on my page, because "growth." It felt nice to speak about immigration, being queer and Latinx, and even my journey to learning to love myself. A⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As my coaching, my practice, and even my life shift directions, I would like to do a lot more of that on this page, and share the kinds of challenges I get to embrace every day. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I invite you to come along for the ride as coaching, personal development and the very reality of human imperfection mingle on these posts. What have I learned so far? ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ You don't decide who tells your story until you're ready to tell it yourself. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ It is important to talk about those things we can provide solutions or a perspective on. You my friends are not meant to be my diary, we are in this together. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ Practice makes BRAVER. ⁣⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“Come at me bro!”😂. Ok, this has to be my favorite shoot thus far. Thanks again @andy.hawes for the super awesome pictures! #whatilearnedthisshoot “Courage is not the absence of fear but the ability to act in spite of it...” (F. D. Roosevelt) Going after something that I love, I found, made me feel extremely vulnerable because there was a lot at stake. I often asked myself, what if I wasn’t good enough? What if I failed? What if I made a fool of myself? But I knew that not trying would make me regret it for the rest of my life. Putting myself out there makes me feel weak and exposed but it also makes me so happy. So, I’m here. My husband got me Reshma Saujani’s book, “Brave, not Perfect” and I think every girl/woman should read it. It sparked my courage to pursue this journey and it constantly reminds me that it is ok to fail and to be vulnerable. What matters is that you’re doing what you’re passionate about and you’re going after what truly makes you happy. @lululemon @powwowhawaii #fight #strength #bravenotperfect #pursuitofhappiness #graffiti #badassery #lifestyle #industrialshoot #whatisshame #grit

“I wanna see you be brave.” 🖤
.
.
Life is not about perfection. It’s not about doing everything right the first time. It’s about putting yourself out there, taking a leap of faith and maybe even falling on your face. But, you know what... it’s okay!! .
.
I want my girls to be brave. To leave perfection behind and take chances. Fail, get back up, fail again... but always keep pushing. To always keep dreaming. .
.
These are things that never crossed my mind before coaching. I wanted all of these things for my girls... BUT I was afraid to be brave. I was afraid of what would happen if I was anything but perfect. I was afraid I couldn’t do it all and be it all and I was really afraid... that I wasn’t good enough. .
.
I am good enough. And the truth is, God loved me right where I was... but He had so much more in store for me. These girls will see what it’s like to be brave. .

Who knew that crossing the Atlantic would be easier than navigating the return to landlife? If there is a downside to becoming closer to your family after an experience like this, it’s that you feel their pain so much more acutely. Staying strong together and hoping for some kindness. #sailingtatsu #failingtoadjust #bravenotperfect #resiliencebuilding

Ever get into the comparison game? "Why is she successful? Why does it come so much easier for her? Or wow, she has it all together and I'm sitting here on the struggle bus! "⠀
⠀
Sometimes it's hard to not fall into that trap. Especially when you are putting yourself out there. I have been working on some really big goals in both my personal and professional life. I've been doing some things that I would have never dreamt of doing! Sometimes it scares me to death but most the time it feels pretty freeing! ⠀
⠀
On a training call I listened to today I heard someone say "you shouldn't be afraid to make mistakes. You just need to start somewhere." I feel like as women we are always striving to be perfect. If we know we can't succeed right away we won't even try.⠀
⠀
This is me to a tee and I am working really hard to get out of this mindset and to also stop that narrative for my daughter. Is there something that you are passionate about that you haven't pursued because you are worried what other people will think? Or even worse, didn't try because that voice in your head said "you won't be good at it."⠀
⠀
Well you are enough, just like I am enough! And your dreams are just as important as anyone else's! I hope this little reminder helps you today just like it helped me!!⠀

I look super happy & breezy in this picture yet the real story behind this photo is the fact that I was totally irritated by a stranger I encountered.▪️It was totally hijacking my vibe.▪️All I wanted to do was vent to anyone who would listen about how irritated I was and how big of a jerk said person was/is.▪️Then I remembered an exercise that was designed to help with this exact feeling.▪️It goes a lil’ something like this: 
1️⃣ Grab a pen and a piece of paper 📝 
2️⃣ Start writing down / venting about what is pissing you off.🤬
3️⃣ Then throw it out. Burn it.  Shred it. Whatever it takes. 😝
•••
Not only will you throw out the negativity that comes to YOU with holding anger towards someone or something else, you’ll also throw out passing on that negative energy to other people (who don’t deserve those negative vibes either) when you gossip or vent to them about it. 🙌🏻
•••
So, #FearBoss, write it down and throw it out. Then get back to bossing UP. ⚡️⚡️⚡️

I look super happy & breezy in this picture yet the real story behind this photo is the fact that I was totally irritated by a stranger I encountered.▪️It was totally hijacking my vibe.▪️All I wanted to do was vent to anyone who would listen about how irritated I was and how big of a jerk said person was/is.▪️Then I remembered an exercise that was designed to help with this exact feeling.▪️It goes a lil’ something like this:
1️⃣ Grab a pen and a piece of paper 📝
2️⃣ Start writing down / venting about what is pissing you off.🤬
3️⃣ Then throw it out. Burn it. Shred it. Whatever it takes. 😝
•••
Not only will you throw out the negativity that comes to YOU with holding anger towards someone or something else, you’ll also throw out passing on that negative energy to other people (who don’t deserve those negative vibes either) when you gossip or vent to them about it. 🙌🏻
•••
So, #FearBoss, write it down and throw it out. Then get back to bossing UP. ⚡️⚡️⚡️

Starting new adventures is always fun & exciting mixed in with a fear & anxiety. 
Or that’s how it is for me, anyway. 
This new adventure in coaching is no different. && there is the added fear of failure since I have attempted this same journey years ago. 
This time will be different. 
This time IS different. 
I’ve grown as a person & a leader since then. 
I’ve overcome challenges that left me stronger & with a clearer vision for the life the Lord has for me.

I have a renewed passion to pour into others and encourage them, not only in their health & fitness journey but in any way I can. 
I’m a mom, wife, friend, & person who gets it wrong a lot & who is dependent on the saving grace of Jesus, but who has a heart for others. 
If I can help support my family while helping others, wonderful....but it’s not all about that. 
When we have something good, we want to share it. 
It’s a natural response. 😉

The support I’ve received from all of you in this first week of my new adventure has been so encouraging to me. 
Thank you. ❤️

Week four of having a broken ankle and things are looking up! ✨✌️
.
.
.
I had my surgery two and a half weeks ago and apparently it “couldn’t have gone better”. The procedure took several hours to plate the ankle both sides, fixing screws, and using keyhole to film the inside of my ankle and reassemble the cartilage... ohhhh fancy! It was put back into place “like crazy paving” which I guess is what it’s supposed to look like?! .
.
.
After a few weeks of dark times, self injections, pain and frustration things are getting back on track. I can start leaving the house, I’m in a boot rather then a cast and the pain is so minor that I’ve completely stopped all pain medication. But more importantly then that I’m feeling more positive, and a million times more like myself! I am so hugely grateful to everyone who has messaged, called, visited, offered help, and been there throughout the last few weeks I’m still surprised by the amount of support I have had it really has meant so much to me. It’s been a silver lining in what would have otherwise been a pretty low month ❤️ thank you. .

I was sitting in Philz Coffee getting caught up on my email after coming back from Bali when a man asked if the seat next to me was taken. I smiled and said no then went back to my work. Sometime later I look up and he handed me a sheet of paper, smiled, and walked out of the coffee shop. Before I could fully comprehend what happened I was staring at a picture of me. I was gifted with a random act of kindness, and being seen. .
So to the stranger who saw me and took time out of their day to make me smile. Thank you! .
Have you received a random act of kindness or given one? I'd love to hear more.

Today is such a special Medal 🏅Monday & Motivation Monday! This past weekend was literally one of the most amazing race weekend experiences I’ve ever had! This was not a PR, but it was so much more. I got to make new friends and got to see old ones ♥️ It was my 3rd fastest half marathon time and 10th half marathon and first international race! I enjoyed the course and took some breaks when I needed to but overall it was such amazing experience at #seawheeze and I’m ever so thankful to have been drawn for this Bucket List half marathon for so many runners 🏃🏽‍♀️ Something I once only dreamed about a year ago became my reality this weekend and nothing can ever take away- that I can do anything I put my mind to! Also big shout out to @gomerland and my coach Steve for the motivational words along the race course- I only just saw these shortly after the race, but they meant so much! Here’s to getting a #medalmonday shot to brighten your day- may you be the light in the center of the world 🌎 for everyone to blossom their kindness around you #kitsbloom #muralchaser #yvr #pnw #vancouver #vancouvervibes #canada #seawheeze2019 @lululemon @lululemonyvr #photography #mural #art #motivationmonday #BraveLikeGabe #RunHappy #WhoRuntheWorld #intraining #runnersofinstagram #irunthisbody #bravey #bravenotperfect #headedtothemoonnotnowbutsoon #resilient #runningonhope @bravelikegabe

Who else turns into a damsel in distress when your phone screen goes black, when you need something hung up, or a new toy needs to be set up? I did for years... I would call on my husband to do any and everything that required to use my hands because I felt like I couldn't do it... but after a while I realized it it was my inner perfectionist saying "I can't" and since then, when the urge to throw it over to Nihal hits, I sit down and do it myself. So this week, I challenge you to practice every day bravery and do something this week using your hands that you normally would ask for help on. #bravenotperfect #bravery #mondaymotivation

Good luck to all the moms + dads dropping off their kindergartner for the first day of school.
Good luck to all the kids starting school in a new place with new teachers + new possibilities.
Good luck to all the seniors who are beginning their last year of highschool.
Good luck to everyone who is starting or going back to college.
Good luck to those of you starting a new career.
Good luck to anyone + everyone who is pushing themselves to start something new.
.
But really — you don’t need luck. You already have what it takes! You are capable. You are amazing. You are so strong + brave. Remember this today as you enter your first day of school, your first day of a new job, your first day of doing something different. Remember this on the very first day of the rest of your life!
.
YOU GOT THIS!! 👊🏼

Rocked it out on the road and clay this weekend 🤟 Double PR and I came in 3rd Overall Female at #HowlAtTheMoon10Miler 🌜🐺 I didn't race it out of kindness to my legs, but I didn't exactly take it super easy either. Something gets me so excited about being out at the Clay Loop! 🏃‍♀️💨
•
I saw some paces out of myself this weekend that I didn't think I'd run until next year. In April, when I started chasing a 6:45 pace for the 5k, I didn't know if I would ever be capable of it. I wanted to try- even if it meant flopping on my face. And a lot of the time it did. I've had many track practices that left my legs wobbling, my lungs screaming, and my mind drowning in doubt. But if you keep in mind that merely showing up is a large percentage of the work, flopping doesn't hurt all that bad. There will always another opportunity, another lap, another race. We tend to stray from discomfort and failure- but putting ourselves on that ledge is the only way we'll grow.
Don't allow fear to paralyze you from chasing the things you want. Often our greatest lessons come from our biggest failures. 
Remember that it's not our hardships, but how we overcome them that define us. 
If failure was viewed as a part of the journey and not something to be avoided, what goals would you chase?

Thanks @reshmasaujani for always bringing brave to women’s lives from girls to working women on a new mission! We can easily forget how irrelevant perfect is when we are in mission to make a difference in our communities, or at work. Perfect is taking the step to be your own brave, be you!

I am a marketing strategist, this is what I do. Making choices for clients feels easier than choices for my own personal brand. Something that is professional, that feels authentic. Not sure where to go, so I chose forward. •

‘Twas the night before school started 🏎
.
Every year since we bought our convertible, we take the kids out for a drive around town for one last hurrah the night before the first day of school. It’s become our little Parker Family Tradition over the last 4 years. We have so much fun every year!
.
We talk with them about what they are looking forward to most + what they are most anxious about. Our conversations range from deep discussions to “if you were the worst tasting cafeteria food, what would you be?” The worst we heard was tomatoes with brussel sprouts on top. (Although if roasted, that sounds delicious! 😂) No matter how we spend it, I cherish every second of it every single time.
.
💤Sweet dreams to our little 2nd + 5th grader.
Here’s to having another fun year filled with so many memories!
Happy first day of school to all + to all a good night!
XO, the Parker family ❤️

In the world, there are ~10k species of birds; ~ 391k plant species in the world, and ~7.7 billion people.
.
We live in a biodiverse world where every species and person has an important role to play. The more diverse, from plants to human beings, there is a variety of life and possibility of creativity. Biodiversity believes that more diversity ensures natural sustainability for all life forms. .
So you, yes you. This post is for you. .
I know you long to belong, to create, to love and be loved, to be seen for who you are, to have someone have your back, to feel confident as a leader, to have the answers. Yet, you think if I looked a different way, was less this and more that, if society was different.... than you could be happy. You'd belong, be confident, be heard. .
Think about all the events and choices that happened for you to be right where you are today. You are who you are. You were born at this time, with these politics. To your parents. To your privilege. You can't change it. So what are you going to do with your one wild and precious life? What's the unique gift you want to bring to this world? .
The invitation, be the best version of you. That's it! Go find your version of love, creativity, and peace; hopefully, making this a better world along the way.
.
When you catch yourself in comparison, jealousy, envy, fear and doubt... just remember you have just identified a desire, something that you want, then remember you deserve to have that; and go make it happen!

So you, yes you. This post is for you. .
I know you long to belong, to create, to love and be loved, to be seen for who you are, to have someone have your back, to feel confident as a leader, to have the answers. Yet, you think if I looked a different way, was less this and more that, if society was different.... than you could be happy. You'd belong, be confident, be heard. .
Think about all the events and choices that happened for you to be right where you are today. You are who you are. You were born at this time, with these politics. To your parents. To your privilege. You can't change it. So what are you going to do with your one wild and precious life? What's the unique gift you want to bring to this world? .
The invitation, be the best version of you. That's it! Go find your version of love, creativity, and peace; hopefully, making this a better world along the way.
.
When you catch yourself in comparison, jealousy, envy, fear and doubt... just remember you have just identified a desire, something that you want, then remember you deserve to have that; and go make it happen!

Week 6 done! I honestly didn't think I was going to make it.
▪️
-Period fatigue
-Dylan out of town
-Prepping for our trip

But I did it 🤘🏻 Purposely wore these pants today. Damn you, @nike for being so inspirational, LOL!
