“Don't spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door."—Coco Chanel
A year older and still under construction—and honestly unapologetic about it. I believe that we never get to a place where we are 100 percent complete in growing. I’m so thankful that I know and believe in a God who loves my imperfections. To have such amazing people who share in the same desires to continue to adapt and grow thru various seasons of life. That these people allow me into their lives and they also throw on hard hats and help me demolish walls. I’m thankful for a great foundation of roots because I’m firmly planted and strong. Grateful for my little family and all the chaos they bring into each season of my growth. So blessed that my husband hasn’t ran away in fear by my everlasting desires to explore every interest and hobby 😂🙈. Seriously tho, lucky to have so many amazing people in my life to help me celebrate yearly. Can’t wait to see where next year leads us 💪. #countitalljoy#momdiaries#thankful#selfreflecting#underconstruction#alwaysgrowing#ayearolder#birthdaymonth#birthdaybehvaior

Happy Sunday my peeps 💕
I love Sundays! Lol I know is probably and unpopular opinion. I remember the time I used to dread Sunday’s afternoon because I always felt like I had just slept through a very unproductive weekend and got nothing accomplished. It’s even a worse feeling if you don’t enjoy your day job! 🤦🏻♀️🙄
Those days are gone, and now I just love Sundays! They allow me to reflect on my weekly goals and prepare me for a successful week! ✨
Some of my weekly goals include doing my workouts, growing my business by helping others, spending time with my loves🤷🏼♂️🐶, having a good week at work and just find joy in the little things! 💁🏻♀️ Truth be told, I feel that this new outlook on life came as an added bonus from becoming a coach! It’s so much more than working out and eating well. Taking care of yourself and teaching others how to do it also involves overcoming struggles and excuses. It involves personal growth in areas that they don’t teach in school, and it gives me hope in believing that if we all work together, amazing things can happen!
If you want that change in your life, talk to me girl! I’m literally a DM away!
Feeling Stuck “I don’t know what to do, I feel stuck!”.. We all feel stuck at some point... Just don’t assume that you’re gong to stay stuck.
You always have a choice. .... 👉🏽 Here are 5 things you need to know how to feel/get unstuck: ✔️ 1. It’s just a feeling, not a fact! ✔️ 2. Time for change! Feeling stuck could be a sign that something is not working right now and you need to change it. It might be a non-supportive habit, mindset or perspective. ✔️ 3. It’s not going to be easy, but the rewards will be worth it! ✔️ 4. There is always an excuse for where you are right now and what you need to do next! ✔️ 5. You are way stronger and a lot less stuck than you think! ... 👣 Start taking even a tiny little step or tiptoe to get out of feeling stuck.
What little step can you do TODAY? 🤔✨ What helps you when you feel stuck?🤔 ------------------------------------- “Ik weet niet wat ik moet doen, ik zit vast!".. We hebben allemaal het gevoel vast te zitten op een bepaald moment. Ga er gewoon niet van uit dat je vast zult blijven zitten. Je hebt altijd een keuze.
👉🏽 Hier zijn 5 dingen die je moet weten om te zorgen dat je je niet vast voelt zitten: ✔️ 1. Het is gewoon een gevoel, niet een feit! ✔️2. Tijd voor verandering! Het gevoel vast te zitten kan een teken zijn dat er iets nu niet werkt en dat je het dient te veranderen. Het is misschien een niet-ondersteunende gewoonte, mentaliteit of perspectief. ✔️3. Het zal niet makkelijk zijn, maar de beloning is de moeite waard! ✔️4. Er is altijd een excuus voor waar je nu bent en wat je als volgende dient te doen (je volgende stap)! ✔️5. Je bent veel sterker en zit veel minder vast dan je denkt! 👣 Start met een klein stapje of zelfs teen-voor-teen om van het gevoel weg te komen dat je vastzit.
Welke kleine stap kun je VANDAAG doen?🤔✨ En wat helpt jou als je vastzit?🤔 #stuck#sunday#zondag#reflection#reflectie#selfreflection#selfreflecting#selfreflectionsunday#zelfreflectie#doelen#doel#goals#motivatie#inspiratie#instaspirit#motivation#inspiration#lifestyle#dreams#dromen#happy#happiness#liveyourdream#keepgoing#dontstopdreaming#empowerment#womenempowerment#beyourownguru#incredibalance
I hope you watched my previous video called, “Why you should be meditating as if your life depends on it – Because it does”… Because I talk in there, about all the incredible benefits of meditation… so I hope I’ve talked you into how important it is to start meditating. Meditation has so many incredible benefits on all the levels – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. It can literally transform your life.
That’s a picture of me meditating in Sedona. But for many people, they just find it too hard to meditate. They say to me, Debra I can’t get my mind to quiet down, my thoughts keep racing, so let’s talk about that and how you can get started meditating today.
See link in bio to watch the video.
Today's MIND! Sometimes you just have to be brave no matter how vulnerable you may feel. Sometimes you have to stay open to not stand in your own way of possible happiness. I will not decide that today though. I need my own patience to build up again. My lesson is to stay open even though there is people that have hurt me but I cannot close myself down because it ruins my blessings...for what reason...FEAR ..fear alone...unknown ground....is it safe? will it break? will it kill me next time? Did you physically die my child? You stand taller now than you think you do!
Yes my dear fears you whistle to me that song of hope wich still never died within me. I deserve to be loved ...I deserve to be desired and I also deserve people to be brave on my behalf too. And I deserve people to proof their devotion to me since Im checking in with mine too.
I went over my own limits (you always set them yourself keep that in mind and its your decision how much you will limit yourself) so many times. I dared things in the past that scared me too and it will always gonna be like this ..they may be good or bad experiences you make but its the grace of how to emerge from those experiences. In some ways Im so proud of my strength and everything good Im greatful for...no matter how smal the achievments and on the other side Im so disappointed within myself. ;
Late shift for me today. Sucks that I have 2 days in a row working alone...noone to talk to but my clients ...too much time to think. Well let's see wich blessings are in for me today. 💜 Let's just be excited for no reason. #1010#11#111#authenticself#nobullshitauthenticity#honesty#devotion#Iampuredevotion#selflove#Iamlove#bebrave#doyou#IamwhoIam#Iamloved#Iamloveable#selfreflecting#mirrormirror#letthyfearbeyoursteppingstones#lovedoesnthavetobeabattlefield#lovecanbeeasy#lovecanbesimple#lifecanchangeinamatterofmoments#dontmissit#oppertunitiescomeandgo
FLASH 🔙 FRIDAY
Looking back at the days when my daughter was young, and so was I. Looking back to when I was just a baby raising a baby. Looking back to when I was so sure I knew exactly where my future was headed.
Looking back & realizing I knew absolutely nothing.
I knew nothing about the world. I knew nothing about what I wanted. I knew nothing about running a business. I knew nothing about being a dependable employee. I knew nothing about leadership. I knew nothing about this crazy thing called life.
I stumbled & I fell. I made mistakes & then I made even more. I failed at many things.
But the stumbling, the mistakes, & failing? They built me. They taught me. They helped me to grow. They laid the foundation for the success that I see today.
Those days were hard. These days are sometimes hard, too. But I'm slowly & surely figuring out where I'm headed.
And I can tell you only that I know it will be amazing 😍
Care for yourself as if you were the love of your life. I am the love of my life I keep remembering myself since my selfworth went to shit...that one guy from my holiday totally destroyed it ...okay its really my fault since I had no selfworth then I noticed even if I thought I finally made it....naaah I didnt. I didnt but my energy is leaving him more and more and I feel more myself again..Im not dependent on anyones love...why because I should be myself the most important person in my life. I gave too much in the past and forgot myself. I do no longer have time for games and bullshit Im old enough to know better.❤👁 #selflove#selfcare#selfrespect#loveyourself#selfreflecting#thisisme#beyou#doyou#thisiswhoIamlikeitornot#loveofyourlife#Iamtheloveofmylife
