We spent the day celebrating this sweet girls 4th birthday!! She is the perfect mix of sweet, sassy and smart! While I’m really struggling with my baby growing up, I feel so blessed for the amazing years I’ve been given with her and look forward to watching her continue to grow! Happy Birthday Brielle Ann!! 💕
Never forget the why 💞✨ be you and the rest will fall in place ! .
Coaching has brought me back to what I love. And that is helping people. Showing them they deserve all the happiness and seeing them happy... makes me happy !💞✨ we are all in this together ! #lifteachotherup
FbF💥My favorite finish line to date! On this day I raced fear, adversity, set backs, disease, loss, failure, betrayal, stereotype, ego, time, myself. I can not wait to see the participants at IMAZ this weekend race against whatever it is they need to conquer. I’m already so proud of you for getting to the start line 👊🏼 I am celebrating your journey with you. I saw you training. I know how hard it can be to spend that much time alone in your head, pressing on. I see you now 🙏🏻 Yes, you. God speed!
Great leaders don't set out to be a leader. They set out to make a difference. It's never about the role, it's about the goal.
Being a great leader is someone who can guide you, show you, lead by example, step out of their comfort zone, and is always there.
I'm so thankful to to have this gal by my side to lead our team as we work to achieve some big goals!
I feel very lucky that I get to learn from someone who puts her heart and soul into this just like I strive to do every day.
Big things are happening and Team Healthy and Fit is growing in very exciting ways!!
Want to make extra income or replace a job that you might dislike. I would love to talk to you about it♡
Don’t take what’s you have for granted. Don’t let others take advantage of you. Don’t frown often was it takes less muscles to smile. Don’t stay upset for too long, life’s too short for that. Don’t forget to be kind even to those you feel aren’t worthy— You never know what they are going through.
There’s too much negativity, drama, hatred and shitty things happening in this world.
BE THE GOOD IN THE WORLD 🌎☀️🌈 ACTION: What is something you can do this weekend to make a difference?
“Accountability is the glue that ties commitment to results.”
It’s not always easy to show up, especially if you don’t have to. Statistics show 70% of people who start a plan, quit. Probably because they don’t have anyone to hold them to their commitment. It’s so easy to find excuses for not showing up, especially when it’s just a commitment you’ve made to yourself. But when you have someone that’s counting on you, someone to whom you made a promise to be there to support them as well, you just do it! You show up! And when you show up is when you get results. .
If you follow my IG stories you see me show up for these amazing Ladies every morning at 6am. And they show up for me! We hold each other accountable when we may not have without one another! Without them, I’d probably be that 70% statistic. We all need support and people who lift us up and push us those days when we just don’t have it in us. I’m so thankful for this awesome group of women and their support. .
I'm proud of the work I've put in this week. I'm proud of the strength I'm building.
I've surprised myself this last year & a half.
I've always been an athlete since I was little but never really dedicated to building strength. It's been a fun journey so far🙌
Everyone starts their health & fitness journeys for different reasons...family history of bad health, bad news at a check-up, wanting to get pregnant or having a healthy pregnancy, weight loss, to feel better inside & out, discover what their bodies can really do, stress relief, etc
But it's the choice to start that can be the hardest part... and then once you are in the thick of getting healthy, finding the dedication & grit to stick it out even when it gets hard.
We ALL are capable of finding what our healthy is but you have to take a chance on yourself, which may involve pushing out of your comfort zone. I believe in you! When will your day 1 be? 👊🏼🙌

How good is this from @protectfemale?
I’m inspired by so many amazing business women & lovely ladies in general here on Instagram.
We’re all working hard to achieve our goals & it’s wonderful to see women kicking goals while also supporting & lifting up others 🙌🏼 Fell free to tag someone who inspires you 💛
Let me tell you something that I LOVE.
I love women that hype other women tf up. I’ve had a rough couple of days, and I’m so immensely lucky to have so many women in my life that lift me up. Even the women that I’m not particularly close to that take the time to comment something supportive or dm me because they relate to what I’m experiencing or they think my cat is as perfect as I do- I love love love that. Y’all make me a happy human.
Personally, I’m trying to engage of that kind of action more, because so often I will *think* something supportive, but most of the time I don’t say it (there’s that fear of what other people will think about me again.) But what good does that do anyone! Like I said, I benefit so much from women cheering me on, and it’s time for me to actively pursue (vocally) cheering on others! We’re all in this together and cheers to YOU!
When I was in New York, I saw Molly Shannon @theofficialsuperstar walking on the street and started freaking out. I was so annoyed because I was trying to be discreet and tell my mom but she didn’t know what I was trying to say lol. I don’t like to bother people when they’re out, but I saw her talking to someone and they took a pic so finally told my mom she was there and that we gotta talk to her and get a pic too. She was the kindest and most gracious human ever. Literally, so nice! I hope that I can be as nice as her haha. I’m glad we went up to this comedic genius 😊❤️. A true superstar 🙌
Aren't we all trying? Aren't we all working towards something?
There is so much negative energy on social media AND without having anything directly said to you, you can almost just tell when another account has a problem with you. Like they are bitter over what you do...why does this happen? We ALL have a unique touch to the work we display, can we not appreciate the talent of many other people on social media making a living for themselves? you attract what you put out there...people who are into your style of work will naturally come to you because YOU offer them something they resonate with. Stop pretending to empower each other and start actually doing it. Stop competing and trying to out do others, just rock YOUR style. Because no one else has it! I love seeing the work of other people in my area of work and i love all the tips and tricks other artists use! I feel the more you wish negativity on someone else, the more it falls back onto you. I am proud of myself & also everyone on my feed because i can see & appreciate the talent AND the love in what i see. Thankyou to the people who continue to pour their love, positivity AND support into me and ALSO for the people following me or bringing that negative energy into my head and heart space, i still thank you too. You're only adding fuel to MY fire ♡ sometimes i will fall , however you better believe that the other 99% of the time ill be standing strong 😊🌻🌼 I love you all, Happy Saturday ♡ #beatdownbeauty
Everywhere we go in Lubbock is new and different, with new and different people.
Leland does so well being brought from place to place, being at different church nurseries, libraries, and MOPS childcare...
But it makes my mama heart burst when he settles in to his familiar with these sweet girls and makes himself at home with them.
Thank You, Jesus, for little people friendships.
When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It's to enjoy each step along the way.
I know you've heard it before, but the joy really is in the journey.
Check in with yourself. How does this feel? Does it feel right? Aligned?
Even in our businesses. Don't step outside what's aligned for you, because you've heard it's what you should do.
The power is in your point of attraction - who you're being, not what you're intending.
The power of being #RAW will attract what you want.
Stay in integrity xx
~• slow •~ tea break in this tiny spot of sunlight today. My favourite mug by @jessicacooperceramics gives me pleasure every. single. day.
As do my new rings from Chrissy @arboreajewellery and wearing #memade clothes.
Slightly back in the swing of things today, handwashing a few plant dyed fabrics ready for sewing. I also listened to a podcast episode by @saspetherick on self doubt and loved it! Well recommended.
I'm grateful for mom tribes ~ supportive, generous, strong women.
Re-gifting this beautiful dressup wardrobe after many years of use & love by Gracie.
We've been blessed throughout the years with women that go out of their way to help us, feed us, care for us, & lift us up through all kinds of life events. My heart is so full.
Let’s talk about essential oils and cooking! Who’s doing it!?🙋🏻♀️ First off, all essential oils are NOT created equally. I only use doTERRA essential oils and would never recommend anything else!
Depending on the oil, you can use essential oils to promote healthy digestion, lessen inflammation, cleanse the body, support healthy function of the body’s systems, provide the body with powerful antioxidants and SO.MUCH.MORE. 🍃
Look below in comments for an ebook about cooking with essential oils that educates you how and why...AND includes a ton of recipes! 💕
The way you speak to yourself matters the m o s t
What do you say to yourself as you stare down the lift you’re about to attempt? Are you self assured or hesitant with doubt? What you say to yourself matters THE MOST
I am not perfect. I am not happy all the time. I am not confident all the time. I am not LOUD all the time. I struggle. But I’m learning to say positive things to myself more, give myself some slack, and it’s helped me find my confidence again
Sometimes it’s hard to see what others see in us, but I challenge you to REALLY try and believe in those things and you’ll be surprised by how much potential you truly have, if you just believe in yourself
And it’s not too late. You can change your ending however you want. All you need is a community who supports you no matter what, and I’ve found that @broadripplefitclub 🧡

Let’s take better care of each other by protecting the vulnerable and meeting fear with empathy & love. We need each other now more than ever. So, I make a commitment to begin each new day by lifting one person who needs encouragement and support. Some days that person is me.
I see you.
I hear you.
I feel you.
Hey, can I offer you some encouragement today?
All I wanna say is God loves you. And I mean He like really loves you. It’s the kinda love that runs so deep, it’ll actually frustrate you to try and put it into words.
He really cares about you. He sees you. He knows what you’re going through. He knows how much you beat yourself up, and He understands how discouraged you feel. But He’s there. He’s stronger than your feelings, and He wants you to know that He’s working everything out. EVERYTHING. He won't embarrass you or put you to shame.
He went through rejection, accusation, and lies to give you eternity, to make your joy complete. And He didn't just die for you, He willingly chose it. And even though there is NOTHING you did to deserve it, God is such a God of intimacy, that He did it anyway. He wanted nothing more than a relationship with you because His love knows no end. And you wanna know the crazy part? His love is infinitely deeper than all I’m saying because He is Love Himself and that is what will rock you. 😩
If you don’t know anything today, just know that you are so, so loved. Tag a friend struggling today. 💗
Mama Earth, we are praying for you. Please join me this Sunday at 6:45pm for a cooling and grounding Yin Yoga class at @breathandoneness - Together we will send out prayers for for the land, and all of the families effected by the CA wildfires. All proceeds will go directly to helping those in need of extra support right now! 💛#prayforcalifornia
Empowered women empower women.
I have seen this sentence a lot lately. And I remember how it really struck me the first time I saw it. When I think about all the women in my life, I can see so many places where others have extended that hand up. 👩💼 Yesterday, I was struck by it in action. Amy and I met at our company's conference about a year and a half ago but got to know each other during our incentive trip to Rome last September. She is a rock star, one of the funnest people I know. Full of energy, light and kindness. She is also someone who rocks her business, as well as holding down a full time job and being a single mom to three boys. So what does this empowered woman do? She takes time from her schedule to video chat with me to help me spitball ideas and offer advice as I work on taking my business to the next level. ♥️ Empowered women empower women.
And yes, as Amy says, we are complete dorks 😂
Sometimes I feel like I’m not quite cool enough. Sometimes I feel like I’m not quite popular enough. Sometimes I feel like I don’t fit in the same way other people do.
Sometimes I feel like there is a group who maybe doesn’t really want me there. Sometimes I wonder why I wasn’t invited. Sometimes I walk up to a circle of people and I don’t know whether to force my way in, or be awkward hanging around on the outside.
Circles are great if you’re on the inside. They’re fun if you’re in one, but circles can be awfully cruel if you’re left on the outskirts, looking for a way to get inside.
They can be exclusive.
They can be excluding.
They can be exhausting.
Stop building circles, and build a U. Leave room for everyone. Make a way so anyone, any “you” can walk up and feel like they have a place to stand.
Leave room for good people who look different than you, who run in different crowds than you, who like different things than you, who come from different places than you. Differences were never made to divide us. They were made to build us, and to teach us, to fill in the gaps where our own gifts give way.
You can’t be best friends with everyone, but you can notice everyone. You can make room for everyone. You can be kind and generous and thoughtful and sympathetic to everyone.
Chat with the new. Invite the introverts who will never invite themselves. Hug the hurting. Look at the lonely.
If you’ve ever felt that excruciating feeling of walking into a new place, of being surrounded with new faces, of being left out of group texts, of being excluded, don’t let those experiences go to waste. Turn it around and use them for something good.
Use them to be the kind of woman you wish someone had been to you.
Make a U.
Circles were made to be broken, but U’s were made to include everyone, to keep growing bigger and better and stronger.
Friday Favorites, Insta-inspo style. Who do you follow in Insta-land that makes you think, empowers you, inspires you? 💪
Here are some of my current faves:
@thediamondwomenproject This mama tells it like it is and helps me understand myself on a deeper level. She always seems to say exactly what I need to hear at the moment I need it most. ✨
@luminaryparenting I never thought of myself as an astrology person, but this mama shares wisdom about how cosmic events impact our life as parents and she’s been pretty spot-on for me.
@mamaboock Sharing myself authentically has been a big goal of mine this year, and this mama does just that. Following her journey has been inspirational and in some ways has paralleled my own, so it’s been wonderful to connect with her around self-growth. 💪
