#StrengthFromWithin

MOST RECENT

2 subjects I never talk about: my mom and my inability to be a mom. More than MS, more than anything, these are the subjects that are the most painful for me. 😢After a few years, I finally found the strength to go visit my mom in her nursing home. I needed Tommy to go with me and we thought that she would like meeting Otis. He decided to just make himself right at home and crawled into bed with her! She’s always loved animals and didn’t mind at all and reminded me that her father had a German Shepherd too! 😂 Otis always finds a way to make everything easier, even the things that frighten me. He makes every day so much better just by being him. I’m so thankful that I have him and that I get to see all of his silly antics, his goofy face, and his love. 🙏I’m also grateful for a husband that understands, and that can forgive and be with me every time I need him. He tells me all the time that I’m the strongest person he’s ever known and that makes me want to continue proving him right. 💪
Mother’s Day and Father’s Day may be incredibly difficult for us, but we have each other and we have Otis. And sometimes that’s everything! ❤️ #headcandyrobin #otisthegs #mswarrior .

☝️ Sometimes in life, there's no looking back. 🙄 Awkward angles and all.

👩‍💻 What's important is the confidence you feel in the decisions you make.

🚀 After switching gears and readjusting to an entirely different schedule, I'm hoping to have a solid hold on my calendar soon enough.
🤔 (But then again, I can probably count on a fair share of impromotu events now that bridal season is upon us 🙄🙄🙄)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☀️ Happy Monday! ☀️
☕ (Don't mind me as I guzzle coffee to stay alive this morning)
💬 Anyone else have a busy weekend?

Really struggling lately...in ways that are so hard to explain to anyone let alone explain or understand for myself. But I still show up, day after day...and constantly try to beat the challenge. #ishowup #theacheisreal #relentless #debilitating #diggingdeep #strengthfromwithin #dontfailmenow

Never run away from your problems. 👌 but you can run towards being a solution provider for yourself. It's all in the mind.

is it wrong to feel afraid?
of course not
fear is a compass
guiding you to
bright spaces in the dead night
commanding you to traverse
their length, breadth
and depth
during this journey
your body will reek
of vulnerability
¡a good thing, mind you!
.
.
at the darkest hour
even a glow worm is worth
reverence
the light you seek
is your vulnerability
your strength
your s c e n t
strongest
when you bloom
to share your fragrance
with another
the fragrance
first shared by Adam and Eve
this is
Amor,
Love...

When I was seventeen, love was a boy with too many options. Love was cancelled plans, and one sided effort. Love was apathy, until the options went away. Then love was an abundance of determination, a sudden knowledge of how valuable my heart was. Love was “Now that I don’t have anything else going on, I can commit to you.” Love was “Now that you are growing into your own, now that you have attention, I am finally ready to claim you before anyone else does.” Love was selfish. Love was too little too late.

When I was twenty-three, love was a spontaneous unknown; a need to believe in two people beating the odds. Love was contradiction. It was turbulence and nights under the sky. It was “I miss you, but I don’t have the time to call you right now.” It was “I can’t wait to see you, but until then I’ll fill my time with other prospects.” It was “You are the woman who inspires me, who makes me want to be a better man, but I am not going to fight for this.” It was “You are everything to me, but I am busy.” Love was always busy.

And then, when I was thirty one, love finally introduced itself to me. It said “I am sorry for what you have been through, but you needed to experience everything I was not, in order to appreciate everything that I truly am.”
Suddenly, love was mornings spent laughing until I cried. It was having someone make time for me. Love was airport gates, until it turned into “I am moving across the world to be with you.” Love was “I want to give you everything you deserve; I want to show you just how much someone can adore you.” Love was whole. It was assured, it existed within certainty and ruthless declaration. It wasn’t built on the foundation of empty promises, it wasn’t bred from pain, or confusion, or apathy. Love was bred from choice. From maturity, from presence. Love was suddenly more beautiful than I had ever imagined, something that blew every old feeling and past name away in the path it was forging. Love was peace.

After all of those years, love was finally peace.
Love was finally real ♡ x

This is so true. 🙌🏻 No two will ever be alike even if they followed the exact same nutrition plan and workout routine. We were created to be unique. Embrace your individuality and love yourself for you!!

These people are my everything!! 💗When you love and value yourself you can love and value those around you. With self love you don’t NEED the love and approval from others to love and value yourself...it’s not a necessity but it adds to your life.•

We all have struggles and most of us are going through something difficult at any given moment. Sometimes it’s hard to admit that we are hurting; especially when you are someone who is seen as a public figure that stands for strength & positivity because we don’t want to be seen as a “fraud” or “fake”. •

Here’s the thing though; it’s because we have those moments too that continue to make us strong & make us human.•

It’s easy to look at the highlight real on social media and think that everyone else has it all together and their lives are so perfect. You never know when someone is hit with something that shakes their whole world 🌎 to the core. Life is either happening to us or it’s happening for us. We get to decide what we do with these life situations and when those moments hit us and we have self love and the tools to live a positive life, it’s much easier to decide that this moment is happening FOR us!•

Teach them about their past. Prepare them for their future. Celebrate their accomplishments. Fuel their creativity and their passion. Be their protector. Let them venture forward on their own, but never out of arms reach. ...

Tillbaka här igen. Gillar det mer och mer 😍🌱
.
Två nya personliga framsteg idag! 🤩💪🏼
.
Klarade gå armgång hela vägen på ställningen man ser på första bilden. I förrgår klarade jag först halva, sen 2/3 på andra rundan.
.
På andra bilden klarade jag av att klättra upp, över den översta träplankan, och klättra ner igen på andra sidan. Det vågade jag inte första gången jag va här. Då klättrade jag bara upp och ner igen, utan att klättra över kanten. .
.
Och när jag va här i förrgår struntade jag i både detta nätet och det större nätet som finns på banan. Mina armar orkade inte riktigt första gången så då skippade jag det i förrgår.
Men idag klarade jag åtminstone det ena! 🤩✌🏼💪🏼
.
Om bara mina mentala hinder var lika lätta att komma över som dessa fysiska hinder är att komma över och klara av. .
.
Men det ska gå! Kommer bara ta lång tid, och det måste jag oxå lära mig själv att tänka att det är okej att det tar tid - men det är svårt att intala mig själv det.

My father did not teach me the definition of Fatherhood. Having this blank slate for really understanding masculinity caused a lot of confusion, agitation and pain in the early phase of my life journey. I was so lost without the masculine I didn’t know how to understand it, embrace it or appreciate it. It took years of me subconsciously walking in masculine energy as a Woman to realize I was trying to make up for what I missed in a healthy relationship with my own Father. Surrendering to that truth took a load off my back that quite honestly my shoulders were never created to carry. | A Fathers Love is a critical element in the development of any child. His ability to foresee, provide, protect and mold his child, shapes the strength and more importantly the identity of his child’s Soul ❤️. To ALL Fathers who are committed and involved with the love and raising of their children, THANK YOU!🙏🏿 I SALUTE you KING.... WE ALL need YOU! Your existence brings BALANCE to an imbalanced world. 💕🙏🏿 #appreciation #happyfathersday #selfdevelopment #children #wholeness #selfidentity #shapinglives #strengthfromwithin #masculinity #balance #blacktherapy🔑

My heart bleeds after seeing what this child and mother had to pass through. I am broken.
