“If you find someone who makes you smile, who checks up on you often to see if you’re okay, who watches out for you and wants the very best for you, don’t let them go. Keep them close and don’t take them for granted. People like that are hard to find.”🌌🍃🧩

Most of our lives have been spent in abject distraction, meandering from one task or thought to the next with no intent placed on what’s before us. We’ve been fooled by the myth of the multitasker; convinced we can get more done by doing it all at once. Yet we end up with a whole lot of half-assed effort and missed opportunity. This is the where one-mind comes in.
After practicing nonjudgemental awareness of our thoughts, feelings and reactions we have seen them come and go. We work to not ascribe our own judgement to them and learn to separate fact from feeling. While this helps to prevent ruminating or projecting, it doesn’t focus us on a task or a moment.
In order to initiate one-mind we want to affix ourself to a moment. To be present and focused. We do one thing at a time. The desire of the mind to wander is natural. We must train it to come back to the task at hand and resist the urge to do multiple things “at once”. As we see the mind attempt to drift, we bring it back through practice. When we sit down to eat, we eat. We put away work or the news and turn off television. We give our full attention to the meal in front of us, embracing it with all our senses.
We can use one-mind in any and all our affairs. Be it a walk or a workout, even if we sit in worry we can be in presence of that worry and not wander. Focus on this very moment in time.
Multitasking doesn’t work. From a cognitive standpoint we show that there is decreased activity in the learning aspects of the brain, we are unable to do more than one thing so we have a tendency to switch between these tasks, never fully engaging. One-mind is that focus on one task or feeling or action. It is presence.
Work to develop the focus and presence of one-mind. Swaddle yourself in the moment in front of you and truly experience it. Watch time slow and feel the anxiety of the future fall away. The increase in productivity is just a welcome side effect.

WE THE BEST
roasted some tomatoes with a little salt, olive oil and pepper to spice up our morning basic #avocadotoast like the true millennial I am.
roast tomatoes @ 325 on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. drizzle with olive oil and seasoning for 15 minutes and you’re done.
Over the past 2 days, our unit lost 2 patients that we have taken care of for several weeks. It’s been sad, but I must say that I am truly grateful for technology. What we are able to provide families during this time is really a blessing. In the midst of so much tragedy, helping families feel closer to their loved ones has become the highlight of my work days...
Note: terminal extubation is the withdrawal of mechanical ventilation for critically ill patients. It is only done per the decision of the healthcare proxy/family. Throughout, the patient is heavily sedated for comfort.
PS: It’s National Nurses Week (think they gave us a month this year) - nonetheless love on your Nurse friends a little. ❤️🙏🏾

Late (830pm) last night in the tent. I was going to buy a family harmonica for us since we all love music and Daisy would flip out to have one, but then one suddenly appeared in the tent, wrapped in glossy magazine of my gorgeous birthday twin George Clooney. It’s a good day here.
Thank you for taking good care of you, together with me. Our wellbeing is interconnected. It’s a good time to practice feeling better. It’s a good time to practice feeling more like you.
Breath is the finest gift of nature. Be grateful... #waybackwednesdays with @brooklynwate

BROOKLYN, NY: Polly is 11 years old and had never been spayed in her life. She developed mammary masses and her former owner chose not to (or was unable to) move forward with the necessary medical care and so they relinquished her over to the vet. Many times, even with options presented or discounted vet care offered, owners still choose to surrendered their pets and sometimes, perhaps so in Polly's case, it's for the best in the long in. After her surgery, Polly has now moved into foster care. She isn't a fan of other dogs and is seeking a home where she can be the only pup with some space to just be herself and decompress after all she's been through in recent times. PLEASE SHARE! 🔑
@rescuecity wrote, "Polly is a happy-go-lucky 11 year old terrier mix who was surrendered to our vet to be euthanized when her owners didn’t want to pay for her medical care. Polly had several mammary tumors and underwent a successful mammary gland tumor removal and spay surgery.
Polly is a sweetheart who really enjoys spending time out in the sunshine, getting scratches and people watching! Polly gets SO excited to go on walks and runs up to every person while outside. Inside the home she’s pretty playful and energetic, and will do almost anything for some food - especially her little puppy eyed stare.
Polly's ideal home would be with people who are around more often than not, as she always wants to be near humans, and does cry and have some separation anxiety when left alone. Her fosters are working on crate training but she had most likely never had that structure before. She should be the only animal in the home as she does bark and react to dogs on walks, there is a dog in the neighboring yard that she has grown accustomed to sniffing through the fence so it seems that she might be able to co-exist with some neighbor dogs once she gets comfortable, but likely not in the same household. She loves pets and affection and would be fine with older kids.
While our meet and greets are currently on pause, we're doing full screenings and safe 'no contact' drop off adoptions to #NY & #NJ." To adopt Polly, email firstname.lastname@example.org to apply! ❤️ #seniordog #adoptme #adoptdontshop

When living in a city as densely populated as New York, families often face the same dilemma: whether to sacrifice location for space. Just ask Aniket Shahane, founder of Brooklyn–based firm Office of Architecture. After living in his 11-foot-wide row house for eight years with his wife, jewelry designer @blancamonrosgomez, the couple chose to confront the common conundrum with another solution. Instead of moving away from their beloved neighborhood, the duo decided to expand their narrow, two-story home in order to make room for their two growing children. “Our goal was to stay in this city for the long haul, so we wanted to create a house that not only enabled our kids to grow up in New York, but would be one that they would simply love to grow up in,” explains @aniketshahane. The result is Little House, Big City, a now four-story dwelling that maximizes space, comfort, and functionality. Tour the slender, yet spacious home in the link in bio.

I was sitting here waiting on my karma💫
They called me an industry disruptor.
Excerpt... “Corporate dropout turned beauty business maven is disrupting the $7 trillion education industry with one of the most innovative EdTech programs we’ve ever seen, SmartBeauty Pros. Yliana Guzman is committed to getting the most relevant business learning tools into the right hands, those representing the back-bone of the beauty industry, service providers. We often attribute the magic of learning to the tools, but it’s the people who brainstorm and build them, test and tweak them, invest in and incubate them—these are the leaders of the new generation. Meet Yliana, she’s the epitome of Brooklyn mixed with an MBA from the school of hard knocks. Meek as can be but sharp as no other. We’re inspired”. Just wow y’all.
Yesterday, my curriculum for @smartbeautypros was reviewed and critiqued by some incredible legends in the industry. Their feedback left me absolutely floored.
The moral of the story here is that the mind is the most valuable tool we have. The places and people we can reach and impact by simply executing on our god given gifts are unbelievable.
I created something from my heart, and for me that was enough. The love, support, and gratitude y’all have shown me on my zine Butterfly Musings has me speechless. Thank you to everyone who has purchased a copy, shared on their page, and told a friend. This means so much to me. Thank you a thousand times over. (If you’re still waiting for you copy pleaseeeeeee be patient. They have been mailed but the USPS is severely delayed due to COVID. If you haven’t ordered but would like to, the link is in my bio to do so)

Brought the college mike vibes out to walk the dogs. I feel like these 1’s are slightly underrated so I’m showing them some love. But still in awe by the documentary. He’s factually the 🐐 (the middle finger is NBA jordan vibes though lmao)

Your nigga think im cute yeah he said he Adore me 💕 but he can’t bag me I won’t be his shorty ❌
Last summer I went to see Gee Vaucher’s show at PS1. I purchased a million books, many that contained the art I hung on my teenage walls out in Sheepshead Bay trying to be an anarchist in the 80s. I think the past few years have made me an anarchist again. I dont believe in government BUT I also don’t put too much faith in the human race BUT I think often we can depend on each other. Maybe if we didn’t have such garbage framework and history we would have a better chance doing right by one another. Anyway. Happy world goth day. Long story short, Gee came by @modernlovebrooklyn later on and signed my fucking CR@SS tattoo and as you can see I was pretty happy about it and not goth at all. If ya don’t know, listen to Penis Envy and change your life. Fuck sexism. Fuck racism. Fuck classism. Fuck speciesism. Peace & anarchy. Go vegan. #worldgothday #systemsgonnagetyoubutitwontgetme ps thanks @jodify for introducing us!
