Wow, that was a doozy!
I almost didn't do my workout today. Laziness was trying to takeover and I was going to let it.
It's hard to be "on" every day. I'm human, after all. And sometimes (most times) I beat myself up for having days like today. Where all I wanted to do was sit on my coach and watch shows. Sometimes those days are necessary and there's nothing wrong with giving into what your body needs.
But I had only done a small portion of my workout yesterday. Today was not a day to skip again.
Then my girl, @cecileinthecity (get you a friend like her) said, you can do it girl. Just put on your clothes. Start there. So I did. Then I drank my energize and I crushed
A Little More Obsessed, leg day.
Was it easy? Heck no, but I dug deep and conquered every move.
In ever area of life, sometimes we need a little encouragement from our squad. Sometimes you have to find it within yourself, but the results and that glorious feeling you get afterwards can fill you up with great joy. Don't deprive yourself of that feeling.
Today dig deep and push yourself to do something great that you've been putting off, whether it's for you or someone else.

Writer Traveler, Therapist & seller of tees its what you'll find here.... Have you ever been around someone that just inspires you? Someone who sows truth & encouragement into your soul just when you need it the most? We all need encourgement in this broken world, & it's a rare find indeed.... I was reading Matthew 17:1-13 the other day & realized Jesus knew the value of encouragement ...He was placed on this earth as a human with feelings like you & I......but it was far worse for Him. Jesus had seen crucifixions before. He knew how cruel the Romans could be. The thought that he would have to endure something so excruciating rocked Him to the core. How could He possibly carry on? A voice was heard that came from heaven. Just when Jesus was tempted not to endure the suffering His Father gave his Son timely help, words of encouragement. Not only words but friends Moses & Elijah...I believe they were sent to encourage Him as well.....speak life into a man that knew what was about to happen, so He could continue to press on! -----------'----------------------------------------------------
Do you have people that encourage you? Sometimes when I scroll through social media my spirit gets discouraged I see so many people that just want to be valued, encouraged, supported....isnt that what we all want? Today why not be Moses & Elijah & encourage someone new? Buy that item from them, like their beautiful picture. comment on their post, stop & listen, share how much you value them & why.as silly as it sounds encouragers are rare & others need it so much in this world....Today go encourage .it truly is the best way to speak the i 🌏
Yeah, I’m back again!
I had to take a short break to rejuvenate! Social media can sometimes be a pain in the neck. But I’m glad to be back!
I trust you all are doing great. And I do hope your day went/is going well!
In September, we had a full month of Self Care Journey.
Self care journey doesn’t stop. It is a daily grind.
Today October 10, is World Mental Health Day!
So many people are living in depression, anxiety, mental breakdown, abusive relationships, etc!
When you look around, you realize that so many things could lead to depression, anxiety, or mental breakdown. However, you have to try really hard to ensure you stay sane.
Self care is very important. Ensure you take very good care of yourself -physically, mentally and spiritually. These three always go hand-in-hand to help you have a balanced life.
On a daily basis, try to lend a helping hand to someone. You may not know what he/she is going through.
Be kind to people. Show some love. Be a friend. Put a smile on someone’s face. By doing this you help people stay sane and happy.
Finally, whenever you are going through any emotional trauma, do not bottle up. Speak up. Talk to a trusted friend/brother. Let out the steam. By doing this, you give relief to your mind and you will feel better. Even the Bible says we should ASK! So, never be afraid or ashamed to ask for help.
Growing up, there was a program I usually watch. It is called SPEAK OUT! Please and please do not bottle up. Speak out loud and clear. We need you alive and well.
Stay positive, have fun and be kind to your mind!
I just checked the mail got the sweetest surprise. I have *literally* some of the best friends a girl could have in life. Like, call crying, show up to sleep on your couch, always there for you, Friends. (you all know who you are!) .
One, @raemarieb2 who exemplifies beauty, thoughtfulness, and patience better than anyone I know, sent me this card and the gift of coffee (because if you know me, you know me 😉). She just wanted to say she’s thinking about me and send me some love during one of the hardest transitions of my life, even while going through some really difficult things herself. I love you, woman! 😘
I am so blessed. Not just like when we pretend we feel blessed on social media, but truly, deeply blessed. In all honesty, I’ve spent the last two months struggling to “count the blessings” and instead numbering challenges as they pile up.
I’m so thankful for this reminder, and for friends that teach me who to be. I’m going to go pay it forward. Who can you encourage today?
What a weekend! Spent 2 days at the Mum Heart Intensive with @sally.clarkson, @zestandpeel, @mistykrasawski, @sarahwanders, @joynessthebrave @jacquiwakelam and so many more amazing ladies! I'm blown away by their stories, compassion, kindness, hospitality, abilities and passion. It is called intensive for a good reason! My mind is buzzing and my heart is bursting.
We had handmade gifts, home made food and cakes, tears and laughter, fresh coffee, good books and gems after gems of wisdom and training.
Let's not keep our talents, abilities and purpose to ourselves and go and share the gospel.
Every woman has a story and a testimony to share. Let's seek and save those who are lost!
🌻What a perfect reminder to end our trip to Lake Tahoe out of the sweet box from Ashley!! .
After spending a weekend with some of the kindest, most generous and ENCOURAGING people, it seems only fitting!!🤗

First jog-a-thon as a parent, kinda makes me feel old 😂😂 Evelynn did so well, she was afraid to run at first but her awesome teacher came up and gave her the support she needed and she ended up running 12 laps 💜 all in her pink cowgirl boots she insisted on wearing 😂
Sometimes we all need someone to come up and give us a loving nudge to get things going. Try and remember to be that person for someone today, there are plenty of meanies out there... let's all try and be someone who spreads love and encouragement! 🤗👊💗 #jogathon#runninginboots#liftpeopleup#encouragesomeonetoday#girlmom#shelovespink#imgettingold#thankfulforgoodteachers
Beautiful day for a run!!! So thankful for great friends and family to send me pics of my boys and to be there to CHEER 🎉🎉them on! There is NOTHING better than being encouraged along your race! It’s FUEL for your soul!
Today I started my run without a goal. But quickly decided I should leave it all on the course. Run my hardest and BELIEVE I could compete and even win! It was a great reminder of how I need to be running my race of life! I CAN win! I need to run like I’m GONNA win! Belief is essential! Encouragement is fuel! Finishing strong is rewarding! Run your race to WIN! #yougotthis#winning#personalrecordsallaround#believeinyourself#encouragesomeonetoday
Whether you’ve just had another setback chasing your dreams, been rejected by someone you care about, faced tragedy, or you’re just feeling drained from the ups and downs of this journey we call life, remember that things can turn around in an instant. All you have to do is keep moving forward, even when it feels like it would be easier to just lay down and give up. #Godfirst#Smile#EncourageSomeoneToday
