  • I read once that “awareness is what keeps any relationship strong”... so, while I understand that we are the master of our own fate, understand that those around you play a major role in your life, but, don’t ever mistake kindness to weakness... 💫
  • Someone said to me today: “Some people are ‘once in a lifetime’ type of people. There is no upgrade after that.” That’s a whole new level of appreciation. 
Hope you have those people in your life. 
Have a beautiful weekend 💞
  • Take a deep breath, and remember who the f*** you are! ;) Good morning 💞
  • I’ve posted this photo many times and it’s still one of my favorite moments.
I listened to a podcast yesterday and it resonated with me so much on the topic of earning trust in the corporate world “Earning trust: consistency in your behavior - trust is developed and established through consistency in behavior” 
I’ve often said that if you have so much moodiness in your life, you will lack leadership and trust, It’s something I truly believe in people. If you want to earn trust, be consistent in your behavior, in your choices and your words... most importantly, in what you believe in... otherwise, people will pull back. Think about that for your Thursday mood :)
  • It’s been a while since I’ve done a just “pick up and go”. The picture I took from outside my room is a reminder of that time in Kenya. Yep, it’s a giraffe.
Lately, everything has been so planned and that spontaneous “go” is something I sort of miss. 
There are definitely few things I’d want to do... for example drive a motorhome somewhere far far away, surf in the arctic... re-visit Kenya... explore Latin America...those are just few of the things. 
If you were to pick up and go, where would you go and what would you do?
  • Summer in @ourfinland was one of my highlights of 2019. On a mission with @travelwithtjd - we explored the south coast and witness the magic of the midnight sun while driving North West. 
From cabin life by the lake, to glass houses by the sea. We hiked, went on road trips, went island hopping, ate a LOT, took ATVs, did BBQs and jumped into the lake!
Join @dennisstever and I on our @travelwithtjd Finland Summer Series on the 21st of June - 26th June 2020, as we take you through the coast and into the wilderness and experience the summer activities that Finland has to offer.

  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything I set my mind to. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. 
But, I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I almost never needed to escape from. I’ve started my year with intentions to keep me grounded... and I intend to focus more on them. 
This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I’ve had the privilege of meeting incredible humans on our @travelwithtjd trips. 
I'm constantly learning from my mistakes and from others and I'm slowly acquiring patience and acceptance. 
I’ve met empowering souls who braved the arctic and chose to kick their fear to the curb and go on a life changing journey with us. 
I can’t help but be so grateful and in love with everything they have given and taught me, and that’s how I remember 2019. Through those I’ve met on our TJD trips, through their support. 
My message to them now is this: 
I know... that just because you carry your load well, doesn’t  mean its not heavy... So, choose wisely. 
Choose yourself first. 
Love strong and fiercely. 
Love with everything that you have. 
Don’t follow rules, break away from expectations. I'm changing...I'm growing... and I always chose to live the life I’ve always dreamed of, and not what others expect of me. 
Be fearless. Always remember that mental connection is stronger than physical attraction. 
And most of all, be a giver, but never one without boundaries... Happy 2020. 
Love, Michelle
  • Say what’s in your heart, always... 💫
Merry Christmas everyone, to you and your loved ones. 🎄
  • To my teachers: Almost every time I practice with you, you’ll find me with tears streaming down my face, a huge release of pent up, stored up, bottled up energy and emotion. 
For the longest time, my practice with you asked me to look at the parts of myself that I would rather ignore or forget about. Whether its the mental stress from my daily life or the emotional pain. My practice reveals what is happening inside me when I can’t put it in words because I’m simply built that way. 
And, sometimes we have more turbulence inside us than we realize. 
But, not all tears are necessarily sad; they can also be an indication just overwhelmed emotions rolling through us, but in the end, it’s liberating and powerful. 
My Ashtanga practice asked me to show up and bravely look it all in the eye and, sometimes, its brutal but you taught me that the practice is about showing up courageously regardless and pushing to the very end. 
Sometimes that means I leave practice on a cloud and sometimes I leave feeling a bit vulnerable, but it taught me more about myself so that I can choose to live the life I was designed to, to be my brightest true self.

Thank you for giving me a space to call my own, where in a room filled with beautiful, warm, humble yogis, I am able to feel like I’m the only one in the room. 
Thank you for accepting me for who I truly am. 
Thank you Anna, a yogi who always practices near me, and although I’m in total meditation throughout my practice, I feel your presence. 
And most of all thank you for being the greatest mentors in my life. 🥰
  • Et puis un jour, on s'en fout...
Et ça fait du bien...
  • As we give all the love that we have to others... we often forget to love ourselves a little more, so, here is a little reminder... Don’t forget to give a little extra more love for you today and do the things that sets your soul on fire. ☺️ Have a beautiful Tuesday!! 🥰
