Got ma hair did!!! I've been growing my hair for quite sometime and my hair dresser suggested I go pretty short. I thought...let's do it! Then I got super apprehensive. I thought I've been growing it for so long... what am I doing!?!?! It will take forever to grow back!!!! What if it doesnt look good? What if people hate it!!! I almost said no... let's just trim it! I'm trying to learn to get out of my comfort zone, to take chances, to be a bit more spontaneous. Anybody who knows me knows that change or doing something different is hard for me. So here is the new do in all its glory. SHORT HAIR...DON'T CARE!!!!

Wow... this is a little amazing right? How could they have such little interest in keeping us healthy?? ~ Bright side.... I do believe the tides are turning and things are beginning to change. People are becoming more aware of what they put in their bodies and seeking out TRUTH & Dr's who KNOW that nutrition has a direct effect on disease and the way our bodies function. - This starts with YOU... try being mindful this week of what goes into your body and HOW it makes you feel.
What could you do differently this week to support you inner body? Comment below so I can cheer you on!
This week I am going to... do Yoga in the mornings... and drink a full glass of water before consuming anything else. Your turn! ......... and GO! ~*~*~*~*~*~*~ #healthyhabits#foodindustryvshealthindustry#changeishealthy#iinstudentlife#iinhealthcoach#theevolutionjourney#yoga#drinkmorewater#supportyourinnerbody

One reason people resist change is because they focus on what they have to give up, instead of what they have to gain.
I’ve been talking about change and intention a lot lately. The hair is just the beginning. I feel I need to recreate inside and out...and it’s inspired me to write a book when I am in that new place....bigger, better things coming... #changeishealthy
You can’t have the same routine, same habits, same job, same friends, same mindset if you want to end up in different position in your life... it requires change. The same path you’ve been waking the last 5 years isn’t going to get you to the place you want to be in the next 5 years. CHANGE YOUR DIRECTION‼️🔥
Lil dude helped make his own healthy snack today! It's one of his favs! But at one time he wouldn't eat celery "because he didn't "THINK" he liked it.
He calls em "raisin boats", If it helps him eat healthy I say: " whatever floats your boat dude! " Lol
Promote healthy habits with your children, turn something they may not like into something fun for them! let them help make em and if it makes it even more fun let them name em! This helps them make a connection and fuels their desire to eat healthy when they can enjoy it to! .
Even if they don't like it the first time, don't give up, try it again a few days later, reintroduce the foods that are healthy , repeatedly and try to make them different ways until You Find there comfort taste !
. "different is not always comfortable At first, but the more you do it, the more it becomes apart of your life!" TH
One of my favorite authors and motivational speakers!! He literally gave me the tools and guidance that empowered me to change my life when I had practically zero hope. And one of the first steps I took was regaining control of how I spend my mornings. What is your morning routine? Does it feed you? Or contribute to your stress? Do the people you surround yourself with feed you or contribute to your stress? Does your job feed you or contribute to your stress? If you feel you need an extra push to make a change, or just to try and figure out why you are feeling uneasy about your life, check out The Motivation Manifesto. It’s a golden one, that book! @brendonburchard #motivation#encouragement#changeishealthy#changeisgood#change#lightworker#starseed
The last month or so I’ve been diving deep and digging into my own roots. ⠀
I’ve dug into...⠀
✨ my PURPOSE in this life & on social media⠀
✨ FEAR that have been holding me back from taking action & serving others ⠀
✨ my ENERGY source & connection to the universe so I’m not only relying on my own strength⠀
✨ SELF-CARE both mentally & physically so I can show up 💯 ⠀
I know that my story is my greatest power and can not only empower me in my decisions but can also help others. That is why I’m committed to sharing with you both my knowledge and experiences. ⠀
I’m sending out a newsletter tomorrow to share with you what I’ve been up to recently and I what I have in store for you! If you’re not subscribed yet send me a DM with your email address or head to my website to sign up for newsletters. 💕 ⠀

Already missing the ocean 🌊, the succulents, and all the local coffee ☕️ shops my heart could ever desire. I’ll be back for you California. ⠀
It was a joy to live the West coast life, so different then the Midwest. So grateful to @ilonabarnehart and @bbjrphoto for hosting me. Now I’m part of their guest photo wall. 😊
Yep, I found the Fountain of Youth!!! No, no ... not the beautiful fountain I'm standing next to in Mexico!!! I'm talking about ME! :-) A few years back I started my journey to reverse the clock and send my ailing health to the curb. I got in the drivers seat and started the engine. It's been an amazing ride and transformation with thousands of others who locked arms with me to do the same. The support, love and accountability we give one another is like no other. It's a community of both open and like minded people from all walks of life; all ages; all genders and in dozens of countries.
When you have the right mind-set;
When you're open to change;
When you have superior solutions;
When you have accountability;
When you believe anything is possible;
When you see yourself transform;
When you share with abundance;
When you grow together ... THIS ... THIS IS LIFE on FIRE! 🔥
This life I live ... this life I do with so many others ... It empowers us!
We love being present for others ... sharing how to have physical and financial freedom, whichever one or both is the right fit for one's goals. We inspire one another and we create amazing healthy change!
Your health is your wealth, but know this too ...there is the opportunity to earn a very nice residual income to fulfill your dreams. You don't know unless you try. Get both ... an upgraded health and wealth life in one! It's a lifestyle! :-) <3
Wouldn’t it be nice if...⠀
✨We were all more intune with our own bodies: mind and body so we could catch discomfort before disease⠀
🧑🏻👨🏾👱🏼♀️👵🏽👴🏼We saw eachother as equals regardless race, sex, skin color, age, orientation, nationality, affiliation, or even past ⠀
🌱We all received the same basic resources: healthy food, clean water, education, a bed to sleep in, healthcare, and opportunities because EVERY human is precious ⠀
🌏 Mother Earth was our guide and we treated her with respect first and foremost ⠀
💕Humankind was KINDer to self, others, animals and the environment ⠀
⚡️Politics wasn’t corrupt and making a logical change was easier⠀
It all sounds magical. Literally if I could have one wish I’d ask this. In my own little ways I work towards this everyday.⠀
Unfortunately we’re not there yet. Not everyone is on board. Not everyone sees the light, the benefit, the magnificence something of that nature to could bring. ⠀
But if we have to do it one damn straw ban at a time then oh dear universe we will do it.
Today's the day! All of the years of studying health and wellness and living as naturally as possible as I continue to learn are finally paying off ! In just a few more weeks my dreams of teaching others about their health individually and wellness- With Credentials (not just knowledge) will Come to past! I'm so excited! Prayers would be appreciated to make priority to get thru this while mom'in , writing, building a new website, writing my blog, creating recipes, and putting together a nutrition program to enter the world to be Coached by Yours Truly!!!! And thank you to all who have supported and been apart of my story in these past few years! Thank you for the encouragement and the Love! .
I can't explain how passionate for a natural lifestyle i am other than its a huge part of our "medical story" and our Way of life / lifestyle!!! And I love educating and supporting others through their journey!
But to see How God has taken me thru so much in the past few years to learn my "broken/ breaking " thru Life, Love, health, wellness, my anxieties and depression, and loss/grief. And opening my eyes to my declining health , as I questioned all my symptoms I fell to a place one day where I realized I was living in such excruciating pain that I felt like I was dying. No chiropractic apt even 5 times a week or "trying to eat healthy" or exercise , was helping. .
So I'm here to say, Learning Your Health is the most important way to adapt your Lifestyle choices to your wellness! No 1 health is the same, so my support to you is educating you on Your health and wellness lifestyle journey!!!!
Four years ago I was drowning in stress and I was introduced to essential oils. Four years later I am grateful for this gift, ecstatic to be part of a revōilution, and so happy to share their power with others.
The definition of Change is “the act or instance of making or becoming different..”
Notice it says THE ACT which means you have to take action.
In order for things to change YOU have to change. In order to have things you have never had before you have to do things you have never done before!
I couldn’t agree more!⠀
I grew up thinking physical health was the end all be all. If you were thin and toned that meant you were healthy.⠀
That societal idea took me on a whirlwind downward spiral in both my physical and mental wellness.⠀
Today I can’t just yet say I’m 100% healthy but I can confidently say that I am aware and intune with my body, more than I ever was. ⠀
Listen to your body because it’s talking to you.
* RAWR * Are you feeling fearless today beauties? Are you ready to stop playing small and scared like a kitty kat? Why not make today the day to bring out your inner lionness and go for what you want, what you deserve. Change what needs changing. 🐯 Before I started The Raw Food Kitchen my fear was not believing in myself, that what I had to say might not be of value to someone or some people. I was really very timid and shy! Once I got over my fear, I was unstoppable. Now I LOVE speaking and sharing all of my knowledge and experience on the healing powers of plant based eating with as many people as possible! 💚So they too can learn, embody, and love the way they feel eating this way, using food as medicine... * RAWR * indeed and it feels good! 🐯 Tell me, change makers, what’s the one thing that’s held you back in the past from making changes? #fridayfeels#innerlionness#changeishealthy#inspire#growl#innergrowthchangesourreality @livelonglivestrong50plus thank you for this pic! 🐱💕
I bet this relates to lots of you. .
Majority of my life I've been a perfectionist to the point it's really unhealthy. I've allowed humans to dictate to me how to have my hair; how to wear my make-up (don't wear it now 😂); what clothes suit me or don't suit me.
Humans thought I was confident and out spoken but really that was a cover up. I was scared of humans, anxious if they was going to hurt me. So I was a people pleaser. Yup, I hold my hands up as I'm a genuine human. .
Since therapy (I still need more) I've slowly become "me". I'm not people pleasing. I'm realising its what I think of me that matters and not the humans I'm trying to please. .
I've hated change even thou there's changes every single day. Now I welcome it as I'm really finding myself. .
I've found my voice. I'm becoming me and I wouldn't be able to do that if it wasn't for my children, my Mr, my cbt therapist and Spoonie family. I'm so grateful for the support with this journey of healing and finding myself. .
Here's to positive changes to become yourself and not giving a fuck about what others' think of you. .
Ps. I haven't been around because I've had a low point, been flaring and educating two of my brood. So haven't had time to spend with you all, sadly. For that I apologise. 💜🤗💜🤗💜🤗💜🤗💜🤗💜🤗
When life gets hard.⠀
When you feel confused.⠀
When you’re overwhelmed.⠀
When you fall behind.⠀
When you’re stressed.⠀
When you’re tired.⠀
When you’ve fallen down.⠀
When you feel defeated. ⠀
When you’re scared.⠀
When you feel not good enough.⠀
All you have to do is show up again.⠀
That’s all you have to do. ⠀
It’s okay to be imperfect. 🤗
CONFIDENCE is ⠀
+ the difference between the unqualified person doing the job and the qualified person wishing for the job ⠀
+ the momentum that fuels your dreams ⠀
+ turning a bad moment into an opportunity ⠀
+ taking that opportunity and showing up ⠀
Why dōTERRA? ⠀
Maybe the amazing and heart-full founders.⠀
Or the countless tests to assure purity and quality.⠀
Definitely the mission of healing.⠀
The fact they’re a science company not just a product company. ⠀
How about the co-impact sourcing making an impact worldwide.⠀
Could be the limitless possibilities of whole wellness.⠀
Or imagine the very real opportunity of financial freedom.⠀
Whichever resonates with you, dōTERRA is a company you can love and trust without a second thought. 💕
Today is not perfect. I’m not perfect. The world isn’t perfect. This is just a picture. Just a capture of a moment.
I’m just living a human experience, the best way I can.
But in the end, I’m going to focus on these moments.
That is what I want to remember most. The strength, the commitment, the joy, the willingness to see the good in every moment, messy or not. 📷 @ilonabarnhart
