Good morning!!!!Woke up this morning filled with so much awe and gratitude for all the beautiful, kind and supportive comments I received for my birthday. One of the biggest gifts of technology, the internet and social media is the way we are able to connect both in the good times and the bad. I am overwhelmed with the love I felt and received. Technology may not have a heart and may sometimes overwhelm us with information, but today, I really see the beauty in it. Thank YOU for taking the time out of your busy life to wish me a happy birthday. It was very powerful to read all the posts and receive that much love. I hope that in life I can reciprocate that kind of love and kindness in all situations I find myself in. I also want to thank People Magazine celebrating with me. Here is the story they posted for my @TheGentleFarm 50th Birthday. Here is the link: http://people.com/tv/carrie-ann-inaba-50-birthday-party/ It was really fun and special. I look forward to going back there and spending time with more of the animals. I hear they have a silkie chicken named Carlos who I haven't met yet. :) Well, The celebrations will continue throughout the week... and I just want to thank you for filling my heart with so much love that when I woke up this morning I was already feeling invigorated and filled with love... Now, it's off to the gym! Because 50 is still 50! ;) One last thought for today... I feel so much love for you all. Thank you for your huge and kind hearts. And thank you for SHARING what is in your beautiful hearts with me on my special day. My wish is that we continue to share love and kindness everyday with each other. I am humbled and honored and DEEPLY inspired. THANK YOU! Have a beautiful day!

TODAY I TURN 50! 🙌🏻💕✨Turning Fifty is a momentous occasion and this year I wanted to do something different to celebrate my birthday. As you all know, I recently cut all meat out of my diet for the simple reason that I wanted to be truer to myself and live a more compassionate life. Eating meat has never felt quite right to me. So this year, instead of having a big party, I gathered a few friends and went to @thegentlebarn -a sanctuary for farm animals in need. I have to say it was the best choice ever and a very special way to celebrate a very special day. I’ve aways looked forward to being fifty, but the truth is as it drew closer I got a bit nervous... questions like “Have I done enough with my life?”, “Who am I” and “Shouldn’t I throw a big bash?” All were running through my mind. But after today, I know I must always trust my first instinct and intuition...because today was magical. 💕💫✨Spending time with my dear friends and with the amazing founder of #TheGentleBarn, @ellielaks was so uplifting and inspiring that I doubt there could have been a better way to spend my special birthday. Not to mention, the time spent with the purest hearts of these beautiful animals(and dancing with Earl the Emu) is most definitely the best way to head into a new chapter of life! So grateful to everyone for coming out and enjoying this special place with me. I encourage all of you who live in California to get out there and meet the animals. They will fill you up with so much love. And who knows.. you may end up a #vegetarian like me! It was a happy birthday indeed... and I look forward to living an even more compassionate life in the years to come. #bestlife #animalrescue #love #friendships #family #imfifty #50years #holycowIamfifty #livingwithjoy #makinggoodchoices #goodfriends #gonnakeepcelebratingallyear! 😉#dancingwiththestars #thisisfifty #thisisme #iamhappy #birthdaygirl

Early #NewYears Celebration with good friends at our favorite hangout in the valley @Soca. We shared wishes for 2018 and gratitude to 2017 with a toast to make it official. I love these people. Happy New Year everyone! Stay safe! And I’ll see ya in 2018!😘💕💫💃🏻
My Dearest 2017, It is time to say goodbye... and to thank you for all the incredible gifts you have given me. You have been a catalytic year, a powerful year, a year I will never forget. I thank you for all the beautiful things, the precious moments, the breathtaking experiences that Inspired awe in my soul, and for the simple moments that made me smile, lit up my heart, and gave me joy. But, I want to thank you for the other gifts as well. I thank you as well, for the pain and the suffering, that caused me to find my deepest courage. I thank you for the incredible dissonance that helped me to seek and find my own personal peace. I thank you for the relationship and the sad ending of that special and powerful relationship, that taught me true self love. I thank you as well, for the “almost” job opportunities that came and went but left me with a clearer sense of who I am, and what my passions really are, giving me space to pursue them and live my best life. But I must thank you mostly, with all the gratitude in my soul for the friendships (both old and new, furry and without fur) that held me up when I wanted to crumble. The friendships that lifted my spirit and stood by my side quietly and sometimes quite loudly, when I needed them most. Those deep connections and bonds that would never be done justice with words alone... I thank you 2017, for the way you shone a light so brightly upon them. I love and appreciate and value my friendships more than ever and have found them to be my greatest gifts of 2017. But, 2017, you were also a year of so much destruction-on so many levels. It was scary at times to witness, and even more so to experience. But as we say goodbye, I thank you for this “destruction” and clearing, for now space has been created, to clear, rebuild and re-imagine what is, was, and could be. The future is a gift. And I am excited to begin a new... grow from here. 💕🙏🏻I thank you for all that you have given us in 2017 so that we might make an even better 2018, a 2018 that empowers our most authentic selves, our most creative, loving selves, our most passionate and beautiful selves. I also thank all of YOU who are on this journey with me. I thank you for your courage, your passion, your honesty, your vulnerability, your love, your support and your joy. I wish you all the best in 2018. Let us empower each other to live our best lives. Thank you 2017 for all that you bestowed upon us. I am humbled and I am grateful and I am excited for all that is to come. 😘 With love, Carrie Ann
Thank you all for participating in #CarriesQuestionnaire! I appreciated your candor and I hope that these questions were helpful to you. I don’t want anyone to judge themselves based on majority or minority.. I was in the minority in a few of my responses, and in the majority for a few others. Remember, we are all unique individuals, with different reasons for our choices. Let’s celebrate who we are and have compassion for each other. I will be posting another one soon. Please keep checking back, and I am sending out hugs to everyone who took time out of their day to answer. ❤️🙏❤️ Lots of Love to you and here are the results. Happy Hump Day!
Merry Christmas! 🎄😘May the holidays greet you with gratitude and grace. May you sleep well tonight, and no matter what your circumstance, may you wake with a smile... may there be peace in your heart.

#Hawaiian #Nativity Set 🎄 This is my family’s Nativity scene. It’s been in the family since I can remember. Handmade in Hawaii...I especially love the little sheep... every year I carefully unwrap this piece and all the beautiful christmas memories come back. It’s not Christmas without this piece out. So, it’s officially #Christmas time! Happy holidays to all- maybe we celebrate different things but I thought you could appreciate this. Happy Holidays everyone! Sending holiday hugs!!
This girl. 🙌🏻💕Just came back from seeing #thegreatestshowman and @zendaya stole the show! #aerialartist #greatperformance #talent #starquality I feel like a #proud #mamabear even though I have nothing to do with her success. #shesfamily #dwts #dwtsalumni I’m just so proud of her. She’s a special soul.. deep and strong. Every time she was on the screen, the film was better. #congratulations #letsnotforgettomentionthis incredibledress 🦋
I got some business I have to attend to today! But before I do, I want thank you all for your honesty! The #carrieannquestionnaire was a success! I’m researching and your truth is so powerful!! Do you want me to share the responses? It is all anonymous! But it’s fascinating to get perspective and I hope the questions have you a moment to take notice of how you are feeling... it’s always good to check in. I will be doing more of these ( probably weekly) and I hope you’ll continue the journey with me! 💕🙏🏻🙌🏻😘🙌🏻👍🏻
Yesterday, I dropped off some cat food to my favorite #cat #rescue @perrys_place_la Thanks to @royalcaninus for our partnership earlier in the year that allowed me to offer this kind of support! Without organizations like this, many animals would be euthanized senselessly in shelters. It was so great to #giveback during this holiday season! #animalrescue @animalproj #spreadingcheer @ Heaven on Earth
Happy Monday! I need your help! Im doing some research & would love to hear your and your friends answers to these questions: bit.ly/2CWPBOj Pretty please? Share these provocative questions with many people as you can. I’ll be reading each and every one! Thank you in advance! 😘
Let the Christmas cheer begin! #merrychristmas Thank you for the taco ( yes I had beans) celebration last night! My head is always so big because I take the best selfies of my friends... Anyone else have this problem? #bignoggin @tonyselznick @markmeismer @margueritederricks @shellimsa
#vegetarianjourney Okay, so the truth is that I have the challenge of being iron deficient. I supplement my iron with yearly #IronTransfusions (I have for a while now) and this makes me have to be extra careful about what I eat. I have to be sure I get the iron I need in addition to getting the iron infusions. But that’s part of it right?! Awareness- being aware and present in the compassionate choices I make for what goes in my body. So, this was recommended by #SaraGilbert to help with that #floradix. It actually tastes good! Whew! Thanks for all the support. Excuse the hair... it’s called #scrunchychic and #day9 😉😘🙋🏻♀️ps. my eyes are clearer...
