To the one who made me a mom...I love you more than you will ever know. I love how God has made you exactly who He intended you to be...full of life, imagination, love, and beauty! You amaze me every single day; even the hard ones. You have taught me so much and I know it’s just the beginning! You are truly the most amazing little human being. Happy 3rd Birthday my sweet girl! Your the best in the whole life!! (Her words)
In order to live your #BestLife you gotta hop on the other side of F.E.A.R. and know that it stands for False Evidence Appearing Real. ————————-
Most of the time it’s not things we’ve been taught to be afraid of or letting outside voices control the way you think and feel. How we gonna let somebody that’s never done it, talk ya down?!?!? No... is the answer to that! Figured I’d double down and honor a second Queen today since I’ve missed a few weeks. Today we celebrate the wise word of @aliciakeys 🙌🏽🙌🏽
I feel like the majority of the fear that I had or that we have we hold from other people. They're like people that we trust; they're their fears. All of a sudden we think that they're our fears. - Alicia Keys #whatSHEsaid#whatSHEsaidWEDNESDAYS
✴Hi Instaland! 👋 Happy Wednesday night to you all! 😁 This past Sunday, I wore my fabulous new "poppy" dress to church! I was excited to wear it not only because it's flippin' adorable, but also because it matched my wonderful husband's bowtie pretty well--I totally planned it! 😀 #matchymatchy ! 🙌 And I found my dress @sistermissionarymall for a screaming deal which makes me supah happy! 😁
✴I'm also happy because I did P90X Plyometrics(!) today and it made me feel on top of the world! #imontopoftheworld ! 🌎 Even though my ankle still hurts a little when I exercise full-throttle, I L❤VE that I can RUN and JUMP and move my body exactly how I please! I never tire of being able to exercise my body to make it as strong as possible! 💪😃
✴This afternoon, as I was explaining an important piano principle to one of my younger students, she happily declared, "You have fingers like Jack Skellington!!" and was so pleased with her discovery! 😄 Oh my goodness, I laughed SO hard (inside my mind, of course) at her exclamation! That's definitely one "compliment" I've never heard before! And I'll remember that hilarious moment forever! 😂 While teaching piano lessons is tiring, I am sooo grateful I get to spend my days teaching so many of our Heavenly Parents' sweet, precious children! I l❤ve that I get to have a little influence on their special souls each and every week--it's pretty incredible and most definitely fulfilling! 💛 #iloveteaching ! #ilovemypianostudents ! 🎶🎹💟
VEGAS again in 2019... 3 years in a row 🤔...Ummm...yes please! I've just booked! Who wants to come with me? 💃 Each year it gets better and better so that'll mean 2019 will be the best EVER! #arbonne#GTC2019
Fact: Men who do more than a third of the household cores, get more sex.
According to Sharon Sassler the author of the study at Cornell “The evidence shows that when men do a greater share of housework, women’s perceptions of relationship fairness and satisfaction are greater. And when couples are more satisfied with their relationships, they tend to get it on more often." Cleaning can great foreplay too.

First dentist appt! She didn’t want to sit in the big girl chair for long. She’s not as independent as Brae was, but I’m okay with that. She can stay my baby forever! 👶🏻 #dentist#firstappt#2yearsold#toddlerlife
Deah’s story! —> Man, lots of emotions right now. The woman on the left wanted to be a sassy firecracker of a Mom. Someone who could go all day with her kids never be the grumpy one and make everyday a memory! She wanted that so bad- but she is exhausted and had severe back pain just from a 30 min shopping trip to the store and had to stop and sit. That T-shirt was just one in a rotation because she didn’t want to buy anymore in a larger size. She still had some fire left though and she kept looking for an answer!
The woman on the right found freedom because she wanted it so badly and never gave up the fight! This picture is representative of the fire that never died! She has NEVER been able to do airplane with her boys because of her weight and back pain!
Today I did that. I flew my son like an airplane! We laughed and I cried and we made memories! My boys loved that Mom on the left, but they would choose the Mom on the right every time! You can do it too! #healthcoach#healthylifestyle#lovehealthcoaching#weightloss#weightlosstransformation#bestlife#askmehow#youcandoittoo#starttoday
Okeyyyy sooo if I’m being 100% honest... this girl likes her sleep. *cough cough* okay okay... maybe LOVES her sleep. Can I get an A. M. E. N.?? (Yes you over there 👉🏼🗣)
• Something I do not like is when things try to take away my rest. You probably guessed it, those things I’m speaking of are the thoughts the enemy tries to bring to me in my moment of peace.
• The Devil sure knows when to whack us with some of his tactics... and yet I still find myself stressing about it. Just like Psychologists/Counselors may have you lay on a couch, to allow your mind to be at ease so you’re ready to communicate, H👏🏼U👏🏼N👏🏼N👏🏼Y, the Devil does the same thing! When we are in our most restful place he likes to catch us off guard and cause us to worry about things that he knows causes restlessness, when God says that there is NO reason to be afraid!
• He is just scared because he knows that whenever we WAKE we are going to SLAY the day in Jesus Name! In all seriousness though, if we are not rested it is easier for things to trip us up. That is why he will try just about anything to cause you to have an unrestful life.
• So! Take that snooze! Catch a couple 💤’s! Just like Proverbs says, WE SHALT LIE DOWN AND HAVE A SWEET SLEEP!
—Welp Glorayyy 💃🙌🏼—
(( If you have a need for sleep and coffee in the mornings, the Lord knows I do 🤣 and there’s no shame in my bedhead game, leave a comment. ))
Let me tell you a story: Some weeks ago, I noticed a few overgrown branches of Babby the bunny-eared cactus were starting to significantly weigh the rest of the plant down. 🌵 I decided to snap the heavy branches off and plant them into new pots. Since then I’ve watched Babby’s babies grow so much in the short time they’ve been in new soil. 🐰 It got me thinking that what if God allows us to be uprooted unexpectedly because maybe we were starting to grow in a direction that was “wrong” for us? All we needed was new soil in order to flourish into a garden, into a new season. 🌈 (Swipe for pics of my growing babies) 💓 #CactusMom#Thoughts#VisualDiary
Start now- Not tomorrow. 👇👇
It’s funny how we are always on the fence about starting something in our life, or we put better habits and behaviors off until “tomorrow”. •I’ll start working harder tomorrow
•I’ll eat better tomorrow •I’ll start working out tomorrow •I’ll get up earlier tomorrow •I’ll make better choices tomorrow 🤷🏻♀️❓❓❓ But why tomorrow? Tomorrow won’t make any difference as you will be as tired as you are today!!
You’ll be just as busy, the kids will need you, your family will need you, you’ll have errands to run, dinner to put on the table, enormous amounts of laundry to do, a home to clean, activities to attend, games to get to all while simply trying to be the best Mama, Wife, Friend, Person you can be. •
“Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday and the thief of time” You will NEVER get ahead if you are ALWAYS in a procrastination or perfectionistic mindset. Trust me I am a work in progress and I get this more than I care to admit.
To the person reading this: START NOW!! No matter what it is you want to do or trying to accomplish ...just start. Even if it’s slow, at least you are one step closer than you were yesterday or even 5 minutes ago.

Mumbai one city, plenty universes.
Each universe wired by cricket, cutting and cinema.
In Sync in skipping it’s heartbeat for missing a local to work.
United In colonising the streets for swinging in ganpati, navratri or as baraati.
Together In internalising that one wouldn’t hurt for an additional offer of vada pav or pav bhaji.
And in despair for pathological apathy of authorities.
Mumbai is a religion more than a domicile. #justsaying#steering_story#celebratelife
