Boys are off to the cabin, and I’m home working...wearing a bathing suit cover up as a shirt. Life surprises you sometimes doesn’t it? 😂 Thank you God; you’re good through it all! #mommingainteasy #thisislife #thisisme

I always thought you had to be one thing or the other.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I didn’t realize you could choose both!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m seriously sick of people judging people based on what they “should be”.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And trust me, I’ve been guilty of this too 🤫⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m giving myself and all of you the permission to live life on your own terms. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’re doing the world a disservice by focusing on what other people think. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do what feels right to you and stop letting others hold you back!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You deserve to live life out loud.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You should never choose what you think is right. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That’s just boring. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Go be loud,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Treat yourself!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have COMPASSION⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This life is a gift and that gift is only accepted when you fully live it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I am amazed at the #quiltvsquilter posts that are popping up. It’s so cool to see each person and just a few things they have made that describe themselves, their journey as makers, or their favorite creations as of right now. So here’s mine.
If you want to read the detailed stories behind each quilt, you can check out my latest blog post! www.thequiltedroseco.wordpress.com

I will keep doing what so many people don’t take seriously. I will go my way, no matter how many people laugh behind my back. I bring change to this world, if people believe it or not.
I am happy and I stay happy, no matter how jealous people are of my happiness and no matter how many people think it’s fake. My happiness is hard work. I work on and with myself since years.
I have hard times. I am sad and frustrated from time to time. I fail. I make mistakes. But here’s what those people don’t like the most: I love all those obstacles! Because I know those are the biggest times of growth.

I don’t believe people change into completely new persons. I believe when we go through change and grow, we become more ourselves. •
I share this because 1. it’s the truth. And 2. I’m sharing it now because I had some conversations with people who are also being criticized for the amazing work they do. They have big dreams & people just laugh at it. And we all know this can make us questions everything. •
But let me tell you something. People laugh about people like us because they’re scared. They feel uncomfortable around us because they know they could do much more with their lives too. They could change the world, just like we do. But they don’t wanna go this path (yet). And their coping mechanism is avoiding the work they’d need to do. And instead calling us naive dreamers.

Guess we all know the great souls out there who have been treated like this before. 🙌😃

Keep believing in yourself! What you’re doing is important! Don’t let others destroy your dreams! You’re on the right path.
You will see. 💛💛💛

When life gives you lemons, eat pizza... and a skillet cookie. Road trip adventure 2018: I was on my way home on Thursday when my car started rattling... all of the sudden my tire blew and I could see the pieces of rubber flying behind me. Thankfully I was already in the right lane and was able to get off the road pretty quick. After waiting an hour (estimated time 37 mins...), road side assistance couldn’t find whatever part they needed to get the spare tire down. He said I’d have to call insurance back again to get a tow truck. 🙄 I was in contact with Bri and Trey the whole time and at that point knew I couldn’t sit there for another 2 hours waiting for a tow truck. They graciously picked us all up. Trey happened to know someone with the tool to get the spare down and put it on himself, because he’s awesome like that and didn’t want me to have to worry about meeting the tow truck somewhere. I was able to drive on the spare, but it was old and looked iffy, so I made the decision to stay to get new tires because we needed them anyways. We were so exhausted, but finally got into the house when we got the key from Trey... we showed up earlier without it- Chick-fil-A to the rescue! Who needs naps? (It was one of those days) We ordered pizza and a skillet cookie and watched a movie and enjoyed an amazing brunch at Zegg’s the next day after dropping my car off! I know they’re probably enjoying a little peace and quiet right now, but this one will go down in the books for sure. Love and miss you guys! Thanks for taking care of us. ❤️ #begrateful #choosejoy #family #thesearethebestdays #roadtrip

We're all busy, we all have obstacles, we all have the same 24 hours in a day.

You can indulge in your excuses OR you can decide to start making changes 😬

Saturday! Some things: these littles were up at 6:10 which I tried to gain sympathy for on my insta stories, but they crash my phone. I need a new phone badly but can only get it at one store that closes at 5. Day 6 cardio is still hard, even when you thought you were a boss in week 13. #stillobsessed #80dayobsession #healthyliving #saturday

Happy Saturday. Make today count 💜✨💚

A week ago we were in the hospital, and now he is in beanie baby ecstasy, having unearthed my childhood collection. "Babies, babies" he says, wanting to take way too many of them with us wherever we go.
.
His levels are all back to normal, and he is full of joy. Then again, joy hardly ever left him. The day he was admitted, he wanted to chase bubbles in the backyard. The morning he was discharged, he was dancing down the hall waving bye-bye to everyone.
.
I am trying to learn from his joy. To accept it without thinking and cannonball into this pool of joy waiting for me in any moment with him. To let myself feel joy even in the moments when my body and head and heart feel so heavy and are hurting. Showing joy doesn't mean that the pain isn't real, that the sickness isn't real. It doesn't mean you're faking it. Joy is a blessed relief whenever we say yes to it.
.
He is so often joy embodied. I'm happy his cells are happy again and grateful that on this Saturday morning we wake up in the home we've built together. He's here, forever teaching us.

Today I had a wonderful experience of awakening my five senses in a theatre performance. Nuoširdžiai rekomenduoju spektaklį moterims 'Atvira oda'.

Love is the only answer, being present slows time and living freely fills your soul!
Who's ready? Who is joining me? 🙋🏽

Waking up the first days after vacation like... “What do you mean there’s no breakfast ready? Why are there children climbing on me? What do you mean I have to make everyone’s food? What do you mean none of my friends are here? When is someone coming to clean this room? No floating pool yoga?!?!” 😜 Happy to be home but I’m definitely missing my girls and those luxury resort perks. 🦄👯‍♀️🙈

So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead. - 1 Peter 1:6 💜✝️💜

S E L F -  E S T E E M - Do you ever wake up in the morning and look in a mirror and think - "ugh", I've definitely looked better!  I haven't been very good about making myself and my self care a priority.  I have spent a lot of time at my computer and trying to take care of my mental health.
I'm a worrier - and I've incorporated daily meditation into my mornings to try to quiet my mind!  But I haven't been as diligent or consistent with my physical fitness!  As I pull out my swimsuit - I think "oh my goodness - how did this happen???" 😔😢 But at the same time, I have spent the past few months making some big changes and increased systems and automation in my business! I have been recording and getting ready to launch a true passion project - my new podcast!

So on this Saturday, I have a Junior League event.  I'm getting ready to go out on my workout.  I'm heading out to the grocery store.  I'm lining up podcast interviews.  And I'm going to ENJOY my day and be grateful for my health and all I've accomplished over the past few months!
What do YOU have going on today and this weekend?  And what can you say to appreciate yourself? *

Raspberry lemon scones + raspberry leaf tea for breakfast this morning. If my husband doesn’t wake up soon, he might never know that these scones were on our table...
