Smile... Even when you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders... Smile. Even though you have lost part of your world... Just smile... Because the world has enough sadness without your tears, stand up and wipe your tears, keep moving forward, god only gives the toughest battles to the strongest soldiers. #smilingforeric#riplittlebrother#cancersucks#livingforyou
Did you know that October is pregnancy and and child loss awareness month? Can you believe that next month would have been Ollie’s 5th Birthday?
This morning I needed to do some serious reflection. I need to learn how to forgive myself. We all do right?! So often we are angry at ourselves for a decision we made, for an opportunity that was missed etc, doing all of the “what if’s...”
Being angry at ourselves will only keep us in the same place we are at now you guys. Thinking negatively is only allowing more negative crap to come to our current realities. And those “what if’s “ are only getting in your way. Shoot they are only getting in my way! They aren’t going to change anything right? These thoughts are limiting me and not serving me. They aren’t going to push me where I need and want to go!
But what if?! (The good what if’s 😝)What if we just stopped and forgave ourselves. What if we broke away from what is comfortable and safe and exploded into the unknown and what is scary? That is only way we can be better people and excel.
I told Ollie I would live for him! It’s time to push out of my comfort zone some more, forgive myself and be a better me.... a more courageous me!
So think about it. Post it here in the comments (I know this has helped me). Put it out into the universe about what is holding you back from being your best self?
I hope you all will join me on 10/27 at Hobby Prodigy for a fundraiser for Hayden's House of Healing. If you can’t attend in person, feel free to PM me and I can also tell you how you can contribute.

Good morning DC!!!
This week is going to be all about focus. Yes, we all can get bogged down by the monotony of our lives but remember life is about living in the moments. Live in the moments. Everytime I'm at the gym this week I want to feel each exercise and focus on the muscles I'm working. At work, I want to make sure I'm thoroughly dedicated to my staff and the work that I'm producing. With family, I want to make sure they know how much I care and love each and every one of them.
If life is becoming mundane just focus on the things that have given you balance in the past. For me that's work, family, and gym time. What's your focus this week?
1281 days without you but 1281 days loving you. A mothers love stays with them even beyond death and all I can do is await the day I get to hold my son in my arms again. My love is everlasting and I will spend each breath I have sharing my love for my children with the world.
I am a member of a group that nobody ever wants to be part of, a group of amazing mums and dads whose children are no longer in their arms but in their hearts. I wear this tee with pride and love knowing Jason has opened my eyes to a world I didnt want to believe was true, a world that shouldnt be true. Losing Jason was the hardest thing I have ever had to live with but I am so proud to be his Mama that I would never take it away.
Thank you @amyvmott & @marksandspencer for breaking the silence ahead of #blaw2018 !!
Gonna try my best to celebrate my 25th birthday with family and friends. As hard as life is lately, I promised my brother and family that I will always put my best foot forward and try my best. Originally I didn’t want to celebrate my bday without Wilson, but my parents kept pushing me and asking me to have fun and celebrate my life. If you know my momma, she did not push me to d this to my hair, but it’s just a little something I wanted to play with and try out. #25thbday#livingforyou#imtrying#smilenowcrylater#fridaynightout#familyweekend#loveyourself
“You can’t extend your hand if you’re not on sturdy ground yourself.
You can scream and fight it all you want, but you’re lying to yourself if you think you’re being there for others by sacrificing your own health.
You can say you’re doing it for your family, work, kids, or spouse, but if you don’t take care of YOU, you’re failing everyone else.
Giving people a lower quality version of yourself isn’t doing anyone any favors- especially the ones you claim to be doing it for. They don’t need a shittier version of you; they want and need you at your best.
Now is the time to decide: either you’re the person who sits on the sidelines, postponing yourself in everyone else’s name, or you call time-out on the excuses and GET IN THE DAMN GAME!”
4 years ago today we lost an incredible man.
It still feels like yesterday that you were here with me, it doesn't get easier it never will I think about you every day wishing you were physically here to tell me everything will be ok.
I'm trying to hold it together but it's hard when all I want is too see you your face.
I love you & miss you so much ❤️ #daddysgirl#pumpkin#truestmanever#strength#livingforyou
You can pray along...
There comes a time in our lives that we need to live for the core purpose. Discovering the one thing that is most needful. LIVING FOR YOU is song that makes you realize that our life is not ours...defining your being here, against the odds. The breath you take in every moment, your deep heart cry, is it for the giver of life? Who gave us His very life for the taken, free, off charges? Jesus said"...follow me and i will make you"...LIVING for Him, now begin to see every thing else you ever needed being added unto you. #livingforyou ##dinmajoseph#dinmajosephliving4u#gospelmusic#jesuschrist#africangospel#greatness#worship
