Don't be afraid to shine your light on the world, it needs you 
Inhale courage
Exhale creativity

In this cookie cutter world we are scared to leave the confinements of our box 
Why we care what people think? 
Why does it matter? 
Why should you feel that you can't be yourself just because the people watching you might judge you 
Yes I'm talking about bitching. 
Something that has come about as a result of, well, honestly nothing other than boredom 
Kind of disgusting don't you think? 
We are all singlehandedly responsible for the spread of mental illnesses these days 
All just because we want to have a laugh? 
There are many better ways to do that and you know it 
So to those of you who are still reading this, I want you to think about the last thing you DIDN'T do as a result of fear of being judged 
Now take a breath 
Let the confidence in 
And go and do that thing you wanted to do 
I want you to know you're not alone, 
I've been there too. 
Some days I still suffer from it
But I'm trying to let me true self shine
I'm trying to go after my hopes and dreams 
I'm trying to stand up for myself and realise that I set the bar for my self worth 
And I want you to do it too 
Leave a '👊' in the comments if you're with me ❤️

This morning’s post two in a row “so grateful and happy” face = also me 97% of the time during my shift LOL 😁 
Life is hard. Nursing is hard. Night shift is hard. 
I’m so grateful for my “job”, for the amount of love and support I feel from my coworkers, friends, and family as I continue to learn and grow as not just a nurse, but as a human being. 
I am proud of who I am, I’ve fought hard for this. 
Never give up on yourselves, friends. Everything happens for a reason- and YOU are WORTH working for and ACHIEVING YOUR DREAMS. Even if they don’t end up going the way you originally thought, sometimes, it turns out way better. 😉💕 #YOUareenough #iamenough #nevergiveup  #nurselife #wearfigs

This evening I did a private makeup masterclass for a lovely group of girls on Facebook.  AND I LOVED IT!!!! 😍
.
This isn't something new for me, I've been running these events for women for over a year now. But something happened tonight......
.
See this picture?👇 This is me! The same me that a year ago was still using a 5yr old mascara (no exageration) and scraping the dregs out of a £2 bottle of foundation (that was probably the wrong shade!!🙈) .
I didn't start this biz because I had amazing makeup skills to show off....I certainly didn't!!!😂😂🙈 I didnt start because I had loads of money to invest or oodles of time to give!!! I had neither!!!😫
.
I started because I MASSIVELY needed help! I lost a piece of me in the process of becoming a mummy and felt so stuck in a rut!!😭 .
I joined because we didn't have any money,  and I desperately needed to revamp my makeup bag and start to feel better about myself and this was the cheapest way to do it. 😍💄 🤷‍♀️
.
I joined because as much as we love or kids, the conversation is limited (when they're 1 and 3🤦‍♀️) and I just needed an outlet! .
And do you know what happened???? THIS!!👇
.
Yes, I made an income
Yes, I've travelled abroad "with work" 
Yes, I earn bonuses, cash AND gifts
Yes, I've made some of the best friends EVER!
.
But you know what wear happened..... when I look at this person below, for the first time in years I've fallen in love!!😍😭 .....with myself!!! .
This company and the company I keep has taught me that I AM ENOUGH, that I should love myself and ALL my flaws and that above all else,  if there's something I want in life,  the only person standing in my way...... IS ME!!😍🙌
.
If I saw this girl on the street,  I'd think "she's alright! She's strong,  she's got this!" ❤❤❤

Take a moment and just look. Look at all of the possibilities and what could be. We often get caught saying to ourselves, “what if” or “I want that” or “that would be my dream”. Why not turn all those into “here I am.” Believe in yourself. We can all believe in you, but you must believe in yourself too. -
“I am enough. I will succeed. I am capable. I am worthy.” Read those words over and over to yourself. They are all true. Do not sell yourself short.💫

Read that again! You don’t! You are perfect in every way and you have everything you need to achieve anything you put your mind to! .
This life is not about perfection, it’s about progress. Being a better you than you were yesterday! .
We get so caught up in what others think about us that we don’t do anything that could make our lives so much more! We worry about others opinions, and the funny thing is, they are worried about others opinions too! .
So, do you boo! Be crazy! Laugh at funny shit! And do what lights your soul on fire! .
If your not happy with you’re health, do something. If you’re not happy with your job, change it! .
You can!
.
Life is too friggin short to be anything but happy and chasing your dreams and goals!

Hey! That’s me. No makeup, no filter. Stoked that I haven’t worn (face) makeup for 7 months. I still have scars and break out sometimes, but such is life. It’s my favorite thing to say but I’ll say it again: the perfectly crafted highlight reel of social media is bullshit. And if anyone ever makes you feel like you’re not good enough or attractive enough, tell them to fuck off. You are 💁‍♀️💕

Win in your mind and you will win in reality. 👑

Without confidence, you are halfway defeated in the race of life. With confidence you have already won even before you started.

Proud to have come back home from India bearing the titles: 2nd Runner up - Empress Universe Petite and Fashion Icon Award.
To God be the Glory! 🙏🏼

Whatever ground zero you’re at in your life right now...I want to encourage you to keep going, because there’s so much beauty and growth and healing on the other side. Sometimes you just have to let go of everything you thought you wanted to get everything you’ve ever needed. And sometimes you have to experience seasons of solitude to realize you don’t need anyone else to validate, approve of, or “complete” you. YOU are all the validation and approval you will ever need. If you need a little reminder of that, my latest book #YouAreEnough is for you. Click the link in my bio to order your copy. 🖤

Dinner 🤤🤤🤤 eating all the colors #veggiesmost
Sometimes I just want to run away
Hide from the things that try to take me out +
Instead
+
I’m looking into the future with boldness and a new confidence +
That’s a choice 
A choice I have to make every single day
+
Been talking a lot about the “proverbs 31 woman” and how it translates to today
+
What does that even look like
+
How can I be more like her
+ 
For starters it’s not analyzing my every imperfection 
Condemning myself for not rising to every occasion
+
She is grace filled
And loving +
Confident in who she is
Kindness is her weapon and strength
+
These are just my thoughts for today- I pray that you truly own and step into that amazing person that you are! 
#befoundwhereyouare #youareenough #lifeisbeautiful 💕

I call bullshit. .
.

I call bullshit on diets. I call bullshit on strict workout plans. I call bullshit on “clean eating” to lose weight. I call bullshit on fads and trends. .
.

Every single body is different. Every soul is different. Every mind is different. We don’t all fit in the same cookie cutter human, right? No human is the same. So why do we treat our bodies like so in health and fitness? .
.

Yes, there are some things that are better choices for you than others. Yes, the basics are proven by science. But a strict meal plan or a non-flexible fitness plan will NEVER work. Why? Because we are all DIFFERENT. .
.

What works for one won’t necessarily work for another. What is recommended to one won’t necessarily be recommended to another. What one person lacks of, the other has too much of! .
.

So stop treating yourself like you are just another person following a plan created to be a “one size fits all” and start treating yourself like you truly care for yourself. Listen to your body. Change what doesn’t work. Eat what fuels your body, not what fuels someone else’s body. Move the way you enjoy it. But most importantly, show kindness to yourself. 💕

...........................

For years I'd say to myself, "I'm not good at life."
.
It felt like the truth.
.
I'd somehow manage to *appear* to be doing the things others did.
. 
Mostly.
.
But behind the scenes was a whole 'nother story.
. 
Like the duck floating gently on the pond but all the while, beneath the water, paddling, paddling, paddling, furiously paddling.
.
Life felt SO HARD.
.
Who am I kidding, it often still does.
.
One of my biggest challenges is the voice in my head.
.
Beating me up when I'm too sick to take my treatment that night.
.
Telling me things I would NEVER IN A MILLION say to another human being EVER.
.
I hate even admitting that cuz there are times, on a daily basis actually, where I am *such* a witness to the magic and the wonder in the world.
.
I mean SO often it's ridiculous. Ask me, "What magic happened today?" and I'll have an answer. And it will be an honest answer, not one'a those, "I pulled somethin' outa my butt, to pretend to be positive" ones. .
I'll actually *feel* it to my core.
.
Truly and deeply.
.
So what gives?
. 
How can someone who feels that kind of joy also beat themselves up *tremendously* for things that aren't even *close* to being the end of the world?
. 
I don't know but I *do* know that yesterday I did an insanely simple thing, when that voice came 'a knockin'. . 
The moment a self criticism popped into my head, I gave myself a prescription and it was "Take 3 doses of gratitude and call me in the mornin'.
.
I super quick named off 3 things (which multiplied to 6 but who's counting) that I *so* appreciate right now and then *poof* it was the antidote to the storm that was brewing.
.
I'm amazed to say that it worked. That *simple* little thing.
.
Now let's hope I remember it tomorrow, hmm? 😉
.
So why am I saying all of this? .
Why am I admitting this deep, dark secret? (And it *is* one.) . 
I'm hoping someone will look at this and say, "Me too."
.
And they'll know that that message above is for them too. For me and for you and for all of us.
.
I love you.
.
I'm here.
.
You're *not* bad at life. Maybe things are a bit (or a lot!) harder for us sometimes but we're good. We got this. 💗

Love, Col 😊 . ........................... . For years I'd say to myself, "I'm not good at life." . It felt like the truth. . I'd somehow manage to *appear* to be doing the things others did. . Mostly. . But behind the scenes was a whole 'nother story. . Like the duck floating gently on the pond but all the while, beneath the water, paddling, paddling, paddling, furiously paddling. . Life felt SO HARD. . Who am I kidding, it often still does. . One of my biggest challenges is the voice in my head. . Beating me up when I'm too sick to take my treatment that night. . Telling me things I would NEVER IN A MILLION say to another human being EVER. . I hate even admitting that cuz there are times, on a daily basis actually, where I am *such* a witness to the magic and the wonder in the world. . I mean SO often it's ridiculous. Ask me, "What magic happened today?" and I'll have an answer. And it will be an honest answer, not one'a those, "I pulled somethin' outa my butt, to pretend to be positive" ones. . I'll actually *feel* it to my core. . Truly and deeply. . So what gives? . How can someone who feels that kind of joy also beat themselves up *tremendously* for things that aren't even *close* to being the end of the world? . I don't know but I *do* know that yesterday I did an insanely simple thing, when that voice came 'a knockin'. . The moment a self criticism popped into my head, I gave myself a prescription and it was "Take 3 doses of gratitude and call me in the mornin'. . I super quick named off 3 things (which multiplied to 6 but who's counting) that I *so* appreciate right now and then *poof* it was the antidote to the storm that was brewing. .

💫This is incredible. 6 HUGE boxes stuffed to the brim with socks for shelters and organizations across the OKC metro were just delivered to me! Ginger Lee and I will be coordinating deliveries over the next few days! 
I got drenched in the cold rain while loading them into my car and my wedges are now soaked so I put on a pair of these to give them a test run. WOW - @Bombas socks are incredible! So warm and thick and comfy! I know these will go a LONG way this winter❄️. This is making an impact on the lives of the people who will receive them. 
When you buy Bombas socks, one pair is donated for every pair purchased. This is a great way to shop and give this holiday season!! 💗🌲

➡️ A lot of things can happen in 4 years. I'm talking about life changing things! The picture on the left was my attempt at a selfie exactly 4 years ago today. What you can't see is that I was in emotional and physical pain, depressed, wheelchair bound not knowing how the bills were going to be paid. 🛑 STOP! This is not a pity party! Something came into my life that has changed it FOREVER! I took a chance. I decided to believe in myself! A decison that has impacted me every day the past 4 years. The picture on the right is me today. I'm happy. I'm beautiful! I still have bad days. It's a choice that I will continue to say yes to. Along with my amazing team, I run a multi million dollar makeup biz! 🤯 I'm in the top 2% of my company and I'm not stopping there. ⏰ It's time for you to do something for you! Why? Because you deserve this! We all do! I challenge you, say YES to yourself!

PROCRASTINATION ... is our brains programmed to procrastinate? -
In general, we all tend to struggle with tasks that promise future upside in return for efforts we take now.
That’s because it’s easier for our brains to process concrete rather than abstract things, and the immediate hassle is very tangible compared with those unknowable, uncertain future benefits.
So the short-term effort easily dominates the long-term upside in our minds.
-
How I beat procrastination?
-
One trick that has been working for me is to write a list of actions I plan to take to achieve my end results.
-
With this ... I use reverse engineering.
Going from where I want to be, what I want to achieve backwards with the action steps I ought to take.
-
In other words I schedule myself. The list of certain task and action steps I ought to take I keep in a visible place in front of me!
-
I practice self discipline. Task after task. List after list. When done it feels rewarding.
-
The feeling of beating procrastination and seeing fruits of your disciplined work showing up is amazing.
-

Wow! Love this gem from @thatsdrte 
Give her a follow for more empowering content! 🙌🏻💯💖👑🔥
Her caption below; 
You know you’ve reached next-level #BOSS status when you can accept and apply this!
〰️
Do not be afraid to set #standards in life. And DO NOT allow anyone to make you feel badly about doing so.
〰️
Your ability to set standards means that you recognize your worth, are able to set boundaries, and are assertive enough to let your no be NO.
〰️
If someone has a problem with you reaching that level of #maturity, then they likely don’t meet your standards.

Thank you to House of Dreams - a Not-for-profit Humanitarian Organization for putting a fundraising/charity event to help build orphanages around the world and to help poor kids have access to the vital things in life such as food, water, education, healthcare, sanitation and voice for their needs.

I am so happy to be a part of this cause not only donating some funds but also giving something we can never get back, which is time, effort, talent and prayers.

Your organization is so humbling and very inspirational and, I could not be any happier to have supported this cause. Thank you to @fashionkrismaby_aliyaasad  for letting me wear your wonderful creation.

My heart is full for the amazing things the Lord has been gracing me and for letting me meet good-hearted human beings and being able to make a difference in a way I can be true to myself and my passion. ♥️ I love red! .

You know what? I AM enough. I am. But it took me a long time to get here. .
A long time trying to be perfect. ⠀
A long time worrying if someone else thought I "looked fat". ⠀
A long time stressing far too much over outward image, and not enough on internal growth. ⠀
A long time body shaming, of name calling, of negative thought patterns... a long time. ⠀
A long time torturing myself with workouts for one goal: weight loss.⠀
A long time restricting.⠀
A long time overthinking.⠀
A long time questioning. ⠀
.⠀
And now, I've never been more sure. ⠀
I AM enough. ⠀
I am worthy. ⠀
I am valuable. ⠀
I am #MomfidentAF. 
And that's true of today, tomorrow, next Thursday and whether I gain or lose anything in my life. Pounds included. .
You are enough too, babe. 
You are.
You are.
You are.
You are.
You are.
You are.
YOU. ARE. (You have to say it over and over and over and then you start believing it.)

I love being their momma!!!
.
I'm not always the fun momma. We have rules and I like to keep them safe. I've even been told I'm the "meanest Mommy ever" - #winning I must be doing my job. 😂.
.
With no immediate plans it was fun to say, "Go jump in the puddles and play in the rain!"
.
My kids looked at me like I was crazy for a second and then with the cheesiest grin they hightailed it to the closest door.

A GOOD REMINDER #truththursdays .
If you are not reminding yourself daily of who you are, someone will be sure to remind you of what your not.
.
When you know who you are it won’t bother you when people make untrue comments because you will see it’s coming from a place of THEIR insecurities not yours.
.
YOU ARE ENOUGH 💜

A little bit of heaven 💜 Sometimes I’m so busy in teachers mode I forget and lose connection with what it feels like in my body. I’m not the bendiest of yogi’s, nor am I a gymnast, but I think I  evolving in my practice and as an instructor. Yoga is not about super dynamic, Uber flexy or strong poses for instagram. It’s more about stripping back the layers and finding out who you really are...yoga is for everyone 💜 #yoga#yogateacher#yogaforlife#lifestylemedicine#fuckIG#itsnotreal#justdoyou#youareenough

good word: search 
It looks like a good day to soul search! Take a break and kick back. Think about your goals and plans and ideas. Who do you want to be? What do you want to do? & what can you do to get there? Search for love. Search for inner peace. Search for life. Also just a little reminder that tonight is the geminid meteor shower 😍 take a trip outside to look at the beautiful stars 🌌💙

I’m thankful for a God that never gives up on me.  I don’t like to talk about the nightmares that left me so afraid I was physically paralyzed.  I don’t like to talk about the anxiety attacks that landed me in a fetal position trying to squeeze the physical pain out from my aching abdomen.  I absolutely hate admitting that more days than most, it took every bit of energy to roll out of bed and brush my teeth.
But most of all, I hate admitting that I lost all hope in a fog of anger every time I reached a new depth of my emotional wound.
💔
I want to tell you that I clung to hope and His word when the moments of pain were too much to bare, but the reality was, I didn’t.  I blamed God.  I wondered where He was and why He would ever let anything so horrific ever happen to me.  I screamed, even cursed His name... because somehow that felt right.
🖤
I want to tell you that healing was easy and it got easier as time progressed, but it didn’t.  It got harder.  In fact, so hard that I quit, multiple times.
💔
Until I didn’t.  See, the truth is, healing was the worst thing to date I’ve ever had to go through.  I questioned its worth, why God thought it necessary to resurface memories from 20 years ago NOW.  I questioned everything... including my existence.
🖤
But then I began to see Him.  As the anger subsided, I allowed myself to feel again.  I cried the most cleansing tears I’ve ever cried.  He whispered in my ear, between screams, “I never left you.”
❤️
It was in the tears I felt His warmth, His loving arms wrapped around me.  I heard Him say, “I was waiting for you to let me in.”
❤️
If you’re in the darkness today, so angry you can’t see straight, so scared you can’t move, so tired you can’t get out of bed, let me encourage you...
❤️
It is worth the work.  My past no longer hovers over me like a dark cloud.  The work put it where it belonged- in the past.  The work pushed me to where I am today: more authentic, vulnerable, hopeful, and expectant than ever before.  I dream again, I sleep soundly, I love life again and no longer dread getting out of bed but look forward to it.
❤️
Take heart: you are not forgotten, you are not alone, and you can choose to be #rescued ❤️

Motivational Monday.... I mean Thursday* haha #Pharmacy #Life #Healthcare #NHS #MondayMotivation on a #Thursday #YouAreEnough
Over the years I’ve had a lot of excuses for not taking care of myself the best I can (both physically and mentally) ... but the one that kept popping up was TIME!
.
I didn’t have the time.
.
As a new mama I just couldn’t seem to find the time or motivation to make it to the gym or to incorporate a little self care into our hectic days. Once I returned to work, I didn’t want to take extra time away from my little one to drive across town and workout before coming home.
.
Well one of my favorite trainers has created a program that throws my excuse right out the window! Oh and YOU can join me in an exclusive group with the trainer who created the program!! This program is for ANYONE who is ready for a change! Not a quick fix that doesn’t last, but a true lifestyle change for those ready to crush excuses and feel your best.
.
♦️ 20 minute workouts
♦️ 6 days a week
♦️ minimal equipment
♦️ 1:1 + group accountability
♦️ 1,000s of healthy recipes
♦️ easy nutrition guides
♦️ coaching and mindset motivation
.
It’s not restrictive, you can do it any where and it only takes TWENTY MINUTES! Think it sounds too good to be true? I was skeptical too, but I was proven wrong! Take a peak at these transformations to see the results my friends are getting!
.

I have had to come to terms with a knee injury that has come back to haunt me. A little over 3 years ago, I sustained a blunt force trauma to my right knee. Knee injuries, for those who aren’t familiar, are not forgiving. During my yoga teacher training, this old injury has reared its ugly head once again. .
.
However, I am not letting this hold me back! Today I did 30 minutes on the elliptical, 30 mins on the stationary bike, and even slowly and methodically got into Pigeon pose and ended with Child’s Pose (as shown here). My hips were tight so I was praying to the yoga gods in one of the pics 🙏. .
.
The fear of bending that right knee ended up being greater than the pain I imagined would be there... which made me realize it is true what my instructor has been saying: Sometimes when it hurts or we are afraid we need to lean INTO it instead of recoil. .
.
This is true for my knee pain, and coming to this conclusion was profound and made my eyes water. The solution is more movement, more mindfulness, giving my body MORE love, MORE care, MORE attention. I’m so grateful for my practice today 💜🕉🙏😭

What is something painful or scary you could lean into in your life?
