Before you begin to unpack....
DROP THE LUGGAGE!!! .
1. Stand upright....
the heavy load you’ve been carrying places you in a self defeated position.
2. The past will always be the past... unload one item at a time to understand how it has affected your present. .
3. Find gratitude...
Some of life’s most difficult times has built a stronger, wiser you!!!! .
4. Embrace the present....
Take time to really love others and yourself. Shower yourself in forgiveness!!! Some relationships may need to close but #Forgive . #Live in the MOMENT!!! .
5. Prayer and meditation help to cleanse the mind!! When we render ourselves powerless over past events, we actually gain control. We leave room for something greater to enter our lives!! .

One of those things I realized along the way is ⬆️ Do you recognize what I'm writing here or does it sound strange?
Growth is strange, it goes up and down, in and out. Being comfortable is quite alright in that process and it can be necessary for recovery and healing. We all know that, I suspect. But. Only. Yeah. SOMEtimes, your soul asks for a different experience, for instance: feeling deep, painful emotions. And to rrrrrreally feel them. Not just when you were all set up and prepared. 🙄 Mostly the invitation to step outside the comfort zone comes from a factor outside of our own energy field and begins with a strong feeling, perhaps an unfamiliar one. That's why it can be utterly uncomfortable. Whatever came your way like that didn't feel like your idea, like part of your plan. It is however standing in your way with an invitation and your thought is to stay away.
Only... Only... is that really what you desire? .
So many new followers, so I figured I should introduce myself! 😃
I’m a happily married, stay at home mom of two littles. I have a 3 year old daughter and a 1 year old son. My husband and I have been married for 6 years, but together for almost 15 🤭. While out on maternity leave with my first child, I struggled a lot with postpartum anxiety. So many changes come with becoming a parent and it can be a lot to handle. One of the biggest thoughts that I struggled with was the idea of going back to work. I worked in corporate America for 9 years, and the thought of going back and leaving my newborn was just too much. I exhausted all of my options (short term disability, FMLA, all of my paid time off) before I decided I just couldn’t do it. Then, I found an opportunity in the health and fitness field that would allow me to be home with her while building a business of my own. It was also an opportunity that would help me with my anxiety and better myself, while helping others.
You see, fitness has always been a passion of mine. It has gotten me through some of my darkest days. Years ago, pre-kid days, my husband and I went through some serious struggles, struggles that most people don’t survive alone, never mind together. My workouts were the only thing that got me through, that kept me sane. I can’t tell you how many times a workout would end, and my face would be tear-streaked and I would just collapse on the floor. But they were the emotional release that I needed at the time to just keep going.
After having kids, they play the same role in my life. They helped me to feel more like myself during the 4th trimester. And now that my kids are a little bit older, they give me that little bit of “me” time to help me be a better mom.
Being able to share this with other women that are also going through the same feelings that I did and helping them along the way is a passion of mine. If I can inspire just one person by sharing my story and what works for me, then it is worth it.
Bettering myself along the way is just an added bonus. 😃
#throwback to my Army days! 💚 This photo was taken at the end of completing the Sergeant leadership course that I had to prove myself to get into, especially as a woman. 🔹
Well, I was prepared! I passed with flying colors and even mentored some of these guys to sharpen their soldiering skills in order so they could pass every part of the course. It came pretty natural to me, and I knew they were having a tough time mastering some things. And since I always want EVERYONE to win, I spent some of my after hours time mentoring and putting them to practice. Those hours paid off because we All passed!! Woot woot!! 🎉 #sergeantNancyG
It's about mindset! I was confident that I belonged there in the course and that set me up to do my best. I cheered myself on.💪 When doubt creeps in, it leaves you standing on shaky ground. And you need a solid foundation to follow your goals and desires and create your life on purpose. Doubt or other detrimental unconscious thoughts only sabotage us in so many sneaky and destructive ways. 🔹
But, here's the thing, if we don't work through to the source of where these thought & beliefs originated and pluck them out, then we get ((stuck)) in the same self-sabotaging pattern. It prevents us from being, doing and having the LIFE we really want deep inside. So frustrating! 🔹
Where are you right now? Are you in the same repeating pattern? Pause to consider this.
Another year is coming to a close.. Can you believe it's the middle of November??!! 😳 💁 🔹
How much longer are you willing to wait and "hope" or pray that something will happen? How can something change if these hidden beliefs are affecting you? Or are you tired of the aame old crap keeping you from what you truly want in your ❤? You are deserving of your dreams. The question is, are you willing to explore the hidden barriers that are sabotaging you from having what you deeply desire??
PM me if you're so freakin READY to SHIFT in a BIG way, like yesterday!! THIS IS YOUR TIME!✨ #couragedearheart#bebrave 💜 Link in bio!
Hugs and High-Fives! ✋

Nothing like a stroll through Hobby Lobby to give you all the feels today. Awhile back I made a goal of turning my frustrations into gratefulness. If you find yourself overwhelmed with frustrations try to step back and change the frustration focus into a grateful focus.
Patience is 🔑 when training for flexibility. The rate of progress will be different for everyone. You can’t rush it because your muscles need time to stretch, recover, and adapt to new commands. Keep practicing daily and you’ll be hitting your splits in no time😉
I hope my last post was more of an eye opener and motivator than a negativity post. Sometimes those we are closest to won’t tell us the truth or push us so we need an outsider for that ✋🏼✋🏼
With that said I won’t apologize for telling the truth but I will tell you this: FIND THE THING YOU LOVE THE MOST IN THAT REFLECTION AND EMBRACE IT! Then you can make plans to transform the rest.
For me I love the things that I do that have helped me maintain the losses I have been able to do so far. Those little things help me do the things I love like ride a movie ride like the little mermaid at Disney world with my prince! But they also show
me that I can do more. I am able to get to my goals no matter how long it takes.
Look in that mirror and what do YOU love? Eyes, smile, determination, success so far?? What is it for you?? #loveonethingaboutyourself#lookinthemirror#bepositive#youvsyou#feelings#beproudofyourself#beproudofwhatyoudidtoday#loveyourself#womenofig#womenofinsta#womenofinstagram#nonegativityzone
