May I never forget where I came from. God has given me this opportunity to help another mom who feels overwhelmed and stuck. Everything she is doing seems all so important, but when she's all alone after the kids go to bed she is not happy. She feels lost.
I didn't know, when I committed to getting healthy, that I opened myself up to even more places in my life that needed my attention. But those places couldn't get my attention because I was STUCK because I was unhealthy physically. I knew what I had to do. I knew all the things. I know I had to exercise. I knew I had to eat healthy. But something was keeping me stuck where I was.
When I made that decision...which to me felt like a sacrifice, because I didn't have time to workout and I LOVE food...God saw it, he took it, or I should say I gave it to him, and he made it into something far greater than I imagined. I surpassed my original goals within a couple months!
It was a miracle that a girl like me, at over 200 pounds, teaching full time, mom of 3, pastor's wife, could also lose 60 pounds in 6 months and hit her goal at Christmas time! That is a Christmas miracle for me!
Now, I take it as my ethical obligation to make a way for someone else like God made for me. I cannot sit here and celebrate my accomplishments with a clear heart knowing there are other women out there like I was who are struggling.
If you are that woman, I have made it my life's work to help you. To speak life into you. To believe in you when you don't think you can do it.
You may have to make it your Christmas present, but I can promise you that when you hit your goals and even surpass what you even thought was possible for you, you will be so grateful you asked for this Christmas present rather than those boots you've been wanting. 😉
This is your prompt. This is your time to act on what is in your heart that you might be really scared to admit. Drop a 🎄 below if you're ready to act.
If I was to define this quote it would go something like this: anything that holds you in fear and restricts your choices will not let you be free?! The secrets you hold from others, and are afraid to disclose them own and control you? We hold secrets cause we are afraid of what people will think once they knew?! #secrets#disclosure#ownyourlife#judgment#speakyourheart#speakyourmind
I was trying to smize (smile with my eyes) but my eyes definitely are not giving me sexy 😂 and I never noticed it before but I have one eye a little bigger than the other 😳🤨 .... well on that cue I’m calling it a night... good night rest well and dream big.
Any of these thoughts sound familiar? I would totally be able to figure shit out if my ex wasn’t such an asshole… Or, I totally could move up in the company, if only my boss wasn’t such an asshat. I would for sure have a great relationship with my sister if only she wasn’t such a dick about everything. In essence… you could totally be happy if only everyone else got their shit together.⠀
Ring any bells? When you get stuck in the rat race of chronic “blame + complain”, you unknowingly give away all your power to people and circumstances you can’t control, perpetually feel like shit because you can’t control those things/people, and end up not doing anything to alter the situation. In this week's pod I sound off on what you can do to shed this blame and step into your badass power.⠀

Sunday’s are my favourite day! A time to reflect and to say thank you to the universe for the experiences that are unfolding each day...
Some days are especially high energy, full of adrenaline and excitement, others are difficult and overwhelming.
But what each of us have in common on this planet is the ability to feel. We all have feelings. We all have ups and downs. No ones life is perfect.
Instagram is a wonderful place to show snippets of our lives but there is so much more behind the scenes that is so quietly forgotten.
Never compare yourself to anyone else. Each and every human is fighting their own battle.
Be kind always.

Self worth.✨ Something NO ONE can take away from you.
Something YOU believe about yourself.
As much as people will try and take that away from you, don’t forget your WHY and never stray away from who you are, what you believe in and what makes you, you.
It’s easy to fall into what the “norm is” now a days.
But let me tell you “the norm” won’t allow you to stand out, won’t let you shine, and it certainly won’t let you excel.
Speak your mind and keep your standards high AF!🙆🏻♀️✨ #happysunday#believeinyourself#postivethinking#beyou#staystrong#youarebeautiful#speakyourmind#periodt
