I’m just a girl tryin’ to take a selfie with a co-host! One of our other hosts just had to #photobomb! (@maryfranbontempo Is so dang serious 😜🤣)
.
All work & no play??? Um, nope!

It’s funny, I often talk about surrounding yourself with a tribe of peeps that believe in you and cheer you on. But this #tweet from @lewishowes reminded me that if YOU don’t believe in YOURSELF, you won’t get anywhere. (Welcome to Kristin’s #duh moment number 957!)
.
I’ve been blessed with a ton of folks believing in me, but I let one big, loud, toxic voice take over my self-talk for a while. Once I got that voice out and started believing the hype of my tribe, well, I think you can see how it’s catapulted me in energy and impact.
.
Believe in yourself. Hmmmm I feel like that should be more like this: Believe in yourself dammit! (My Mom isn’t on instagram so I can say that word. #donttellmymom 😜)
.

This is Michael.
He’s my oldest son. He’s a musician (our town’s very own #PianoMan lol) and is in his first year at @belmontu in #Nashville
.
Michael is #blind. He is rockin’ his first semester at college a zillion miles away from home!
.
Wondering what college life is like as a blind guy?
Do you have a blind child and have questions about how Michael does stuff?
Post your questions in the comments and we’ll address them!
😎

Just a girl trying to communicate the issues with my car...
.
#accessibility Pic Description:
Mechanic: What’s the problem?
Me: The genie lamp and Slippery When Wet lights are on.
Mechanic: You mean the oil light and traction sensor?
Me: Dude, If that’s what you wanna call them...

It is so dang cool to have a rockstar musician in the fam. Even cooler: he is doing one big show at one of our fav venues while he’s back in town!
.

It is what it is.
A good friend gave me this mug 2 Christmases ago when my life was turned upside down. I didn’t know it at the time, but that gift was so incredible b/c it was the beginning of my extraordinary journey to shift my mindset from worrying about everything to only worrying about what I can control. Which I’m finding I don’t control much at all lol!
.
My life didn’t get better with this coffee mug. In fact, it got even worse for quite a while.
My hair fell out.
My finances drastically depleted.
Some friends walked away.
.
But my mindset about it all changed. I learned that when sh@! hits the fan and I can’t control it, I say “It Is What It Is” and move forward.
.
I moved forward by getting physically healthy.
And found a great therapist.
And leaned on great friends. A lot of them.
And I got some kickass hair extensions!
.
Some people think my life is perfect.
Some think it’s a perfect mess.
I see the perfect blessings in all the messes everyday. And I drink a ton of coffee along the way. ☕️ 😎

These girls. This tribe.
From college and soccer fields and sorority to weddings, children, divorces, and success beyond measure, and EVERYTHING in between...
We’ve pushed and supported each other. We’ve cried together. We may or may not have put secret voodoo curses on some people together. 😜
.
Most of all, we laugh so much together and cheer so dang loud for each other.(just ask the people that have to sit near us!)
.
Wonder why or how my journey is so extraordinary? I pick great peeps to share it with.
.
Are you sharing your journey with extraordinary peeps? Tell me ‘bout it! ⬇️

If you haven’t heard of @hal_elrod and @themiraclemorning yet, ditch my post and go check it all out.
.
Starting #themiraclemorning routine over a year ago was a game changer in my life.
.
I’ll be the first to admit that I am not one for routines, they kind of suffocate me... but starting every morning the #miracle way has not only brought me through a few nightmares, it has catapulted my new #ExtraordinaryMindset.
.
Go check it out. And I’m anxious to hear if any of my #instapeeps here are fans of Hal and his work. (Look at me saying “Hal” like we’re buddies omg 😮)
“Where you are is a result of who you were, but where you go depends entirely on who you choose to be.”

What if you looked at today as the first page in the story that ends with you as the hero that accomplished the goal, the dream you’ve often visualized???
.
Set Extraordinary (outside what is typically expected) Expectations for your journey. Your expectations directly affect your outcomes. They don’t need to be huge and require super powers and a good therapist to handle, just outside what is typically expected.
.
Start today.
Our world needs more hero stories.
