I mean, i would say mine was a waste of time. nobody should experience domestic violence, especially for their first relationship and as a teenager! every relationship teaches you something you don’t want or deserve.
Finally back in our condo🎉. word to the wise, if you are trying to get rid of fruit flies, don’t leave your window open to freeze them out. this will result in your pipes bursting. best just to hire an exterminator. #liveandlearn
I would just like to thank all my people and followers for the support!! with the movement of mully’s dushi wrap shack.
unfortunately due to the lack of communication ,information & professionalism, the wider public of leeds & beyond will now not have the opportunity to sample ‘mullys famous j**k chicken’ in trinity kitchen! #learningcurve#keepitmoving#dontlookback#liveandlearn @britishstreetfood
fortunately this means we can😎concentrate on the place we call home ‘mully’s kitchen.’ look out for our new menu, opening times & specials.

I have just had a live and learn moment!
i was happy with this drawing titled “beneath the beauty”. i enjoyed drawing the hellebore leaves which become more unruly as they grow. i was inspired to draw the whole plant including the beautiful flowing curves of the roots. in brief, i had hoped to highlight how it’s so important to nurture the soil for plants to thrive.
after i had the drawing scanned, i wanted to remove a couple of minor creases/bumps in the paper. so, as i normally do, i stretched the drawing on the window but the window wasn’t quite large enough for the artwork as well as a sufficient amount of tape to hold the drawing. on my second attempt, i tried to stretch it on a board but maybe because it was such a hot day, the water activated tape didn’t hold the drawing uniformly and the drawing further buckled. on the third attempt, i lightly sprayed the back of the drawing and pressed it between some butcher paper and two boards. the artwork is now flat however disappointingly, i noticed the paper had yellowed. i was a little impatient and so focussed on ensuring the paper was flat that i overlooked that the acid from the absorbent butcher paper could leach into my drawing 😩. oops!! i think the drawing looks even more beautiful with the “aged paper look” however i will never sell the original artwork as i have compromised the paper. if you would like a print (see photos), please dm me.
i won’t make the same mistake again! 🤗
Pro travel tip- bring an empty reusable water bottle with you to the airport and fill it after security. super pro tip- remember your own so you don’t have to search the car in the parking garage and end up bringing your five year old’s penguin bottle on your business trip😆 #tornadoalleytravel#protip#liveandlearn#inmyexcitement

This type of mistake is by far the most difficult mistake to avoid ... you basically do something or say something in which , in that moment , you believe that what you're doing and/or saying is okay and that everything is fine , until you realize either at that same moment or in the long run that the move you made was an error based on unpleasant results that you just didn't expect .. they're tricky to avoid .. they're tricky since we cannot foresee the future prior to saying or doing something .. we don't have a type of quantum hacking technology that will tell us if something will backfire on us based on whatever decision we make until we actually do it ... sometimes we do so many things everyday without analyzing every single thing we say or do .. i have to have this conscious awareness virtually everyday to keep myself in check to avoid them , but even then , i ain't perfect neither ... #faulty#mental#mind#system#systemic#mistake#mistakes#message#error#liveandlearn#thinktwice#difficult#challenge
looking at city life, through our daily routine!!
racism and tolerance - we are all much more alike than we are different. we all need food, water, clothes and a home to live in. we all need to learn, work and have fun in our lives. we all laugh, cry and like to spend time with our family and friends. we all need to be free and safe.
Live and learn avagy jo pap is holtig tanul!!!😉😉
since we have the off season we try to absorb as much as we can. yesterday we had a fantastic time on our study tour in the gorgeous building of the museum of fine arts.
You get addicted to the bad attention you get from a narcissist. they it to where you have body to talk to other than them. you forget what it's like to be treated with love and respect. #liveandlearn#recognizeyourworth if it wasnt for the bad times we wouldn't know about the ghood times. #pandapanda#truthserum

Ok, i caved....here are just a few of the staggering landscapes i saw cycling in portugal.
We travelled bare kilometres today up a bumpy road for logging trucks to soak in some hot water which smelt like eggs cos of the sulphur .... could have just had a bath and come out clean, and saved on my carbon footprint by not driving..... ☝️🏔#liveandlearn#canada
For all the curve balls it throws .
for unlearning things that you ought to know .
for allowing moments of self doubt & teaching you that only you decide whether you are “down” or “out” for showing you the hidden hues of people, but more importantly what’s within you .
for showing you that it’s okay to make mistakes & it’s nothing but one step closer .
that the ‘highs ‘ should be humbling & every step further you go getting used to the brutal kicks down below ( figurative , hopefully 😅) for teaching you that karma is a b***h & it’s not “money” that makes you rich.
for teaching you it’s hard work & smart effort that makes you “lucky” .
for pretending you have your s**t together even when you have no clue what tomorrow holds .
for all that b schools may teach you & best seller books may preach , one thing you learn is that unlearning isn’t optional.
for realising that you got to smile in the face of criticism, for in it almost always lies a hidden lesson.
to all those who oversimplify an entrepreneur’s success to _____ ( feel free to fill in the blank !)
have no clue of the years gone in making it an overnight process
and , we are forever, a “work in progress “

Nobody likes being criticized. but for me i have always been my own worst critic. but it’s so true as you get older you change. i am the biggest size i’ve ever been, yet i love my body. because i know what my body is capable of. after my hysterectomy it’s been a struggle ( not to mention 5 kids of my own) but i still eat right and try to run/walk 2 miles a day. i am not sure if it’s age, motherhood, or just plan don’t care. but i am more confident, self-aware, and proud of who i am than ever. i’ve been through some pretty challenging stuff in my life. ( especially when i was a single mother) i’ve been broke, broker, and brokest. i’ve made and lost friends. i’ve had my heart broken. i’ve made mistakes that i wish i could go back and change. in my lifetime i have learned to take it in stride, with some genuine reflection on how i can use it as a basis for improvement. i have come to realize that no one is perfect. nor do i want to be. being happy to me is happiness. #motherhood#mom#myworsecriticisme#mature#iamenough#lifeisbeautiful#growth#womanpower#faith#maturewoman#loveme#loveyourself#acceptance #nofiltersneeded💫 #positivity#positive #whatdoesntkillyoumakesyoustronger💪 #liveyourbestlife#liveandlearn
Sa pa is one of those regions of south east asia that you never want to leave. colourful, vibrant, ethnically diverse, rural and absolutely beautiful. the highlight of our latest trip to vietnam 🇻🇳 on which there are several blog posts, this being the latest. this remote part of northern vietnam blew me away with its charm and if we all practice responsible, sustainable tourism hopefully it will always stay that way. link to the new blog in profile as usual. enjoy!
What our perspective on our everyday pets do we think they meditate on life? 🧘♂️ i really believe they are the best meditator before us human.
why i back this up is because they days are mostly spent outdoors in nature 🌅
as times went by they have learnt to adapt to appreciate and see the good in life, but most of all show energetic excitement to see us and live everyday, as if it was the last day in this world.
when us human being are down they always know how to cheer us up with comfort in the place of our heart 🐶
i can honesty say they look up to us for guidance as a master, teacher or life coach in all ethic background.
as humans, animals, beings on other planetary systems we have continue to teach each other about life in every way and in the end we both have live, learn and grow in our lifespan in all kind of lifeform 📚
we have all been adapt to one and another existence that we all can see the good and bad in us all.
the most fulfilling experience is walking our own path and becoming a better version of ourselves as a whole in the end 💫
Today i have been inspired and thoughts of my capabilities have been expanded.
i’m always open to learning something new , meeting new people with innovative minds willing to share their knowledge and for that i am thankful! #liveandlearn#makenosmallplans
You know how they say older folks get stuck in their ways? well sorry, boo, but you're getting older--don't become one of those folks!
it's an easy trap to fall into because, over time, you start believing you know all there is to know. and, really, it's not so much because of age--it has more to do with experience.
whether you have achieved a certain level of success, or you've just been through a lot in life, chances are you have acquired a fair amount of #knowledge (ok, maybe an *impressive* amount) and #wisdom along the way.
that knowledge and wisdom have taken you far. you know it all, because you've seen it all. and, after everything you have experienced, you've figured out there's nothing new under the sun.
or is there? 🤔
yes, there is! a lot has changed, and keeps on changing. dating, parenting, society ... it all has changed. we've gone from record players to audio streaming. today it's ig; tomorrow it might be some telepathic social media app you just download with your mind--who knows?! you sure don't. and neither do i.
If you had told me at 18 that i would be married to this man at 23, i would have thought it was a crazy dream.
life is what you make it, as is love.
this was us in 2011. right after my high school graduation. we were very different people then. so glad we changed for the better.
to everyone who supported us with words, time, and kindness thank you.
and to those who made our lives harder because of our relationship... 🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🖕🤣🖕 yeah.
