EVOLVE is my favorite word this year. Failure literally doesn't exist because I've decided so. Even when your eyes are closed and your champagne glass is full. 😆Everything is knowledge and has a reason behind it. We chose what that reason is- and I chose to believe everything is a blessing. Everyday is my opportunity to grow, evolve, shift and listen. Sticking true to myself and my beliefs is the most powerful accomplishment of this year. I've broken old patterns, created new ones and broke down beliefs that I was a certain way. I used to limit myself all the time instead of realizing I can all do ANYTHING it just comes down to how bad I actually want to work for it 😉 Last night we celebrated @lil_rae_rae_'s accomplishment of getting her BA in Psych🎉💯. This babe is a force to be reckoned with!! ⚡️ She has been committed to her vision and has been a best friend to myself and so many other ladies for a DECADE!!! I love you Rae ❤️ all of my friends are freakin incredible and we are all growing together. I am surrounded by loving, powerful and badass women 🌷 #bestfriends#wearegoals#youareperfect#collegegraduate#Ventura#bossbabes#divinefeminine#nofailure#newbeliefs#emotionalintelligence
Last year when I saw Dierks Bentley, he sang Riser and shared that he wrote it for the heroic firefighters from his home state. Today, the song came on 10 seconds before I drove past these firefighters waiting for the procession of Cory Iverson. 🇺🇸❤️
The fire is still spreading wild to this city. Hopefully they put down the fire completely before Christmas 🙏
@Regrann from @hallofimages - 12/5/17🔸 #ThomasFire🔸Day2(4:30-5:30AM)🔸N Laurel St🔸At this point the Hawaiian Village Apartments were lighting up the entire area. I’ve never seen anything like it. Firefighters did an amazing job protecting the buildings around it. #thomasfire#ventura#venturacounty#fire
#BREAKINGNEWS A firefighter from San Diego was killed while battling the Thomas Fire, @calfire officials said on Thursday. The firefighter was identified as Cal Fire San Diego Unit Fire Apparatus Engineer Cory Iverson. Dozens of fellow firefighters lined up in Fillmore to honor Iverson in a procession. Ventura County sheriff's officials said the firefighter suffered fatal injuries near the eastern flank of the fire sometime between 9am and 10am Thursday. According to Cal Fire, the Thomas Fire has scorched 242,500 acres since it broke out Dec. 4, which amounts to 379 square miles. It is now the fourth largest wildfire in California history. The colossal blaze, which straddles coastal Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, was 30% contained as of Thursday morning. Details on Eyewitness News on ABC7 and at abc7.com.
