"It is said that the darkest hour of the night comes just before the dawn" Thomas Fuller This sums up #2016 perfectly for me. I was really struggling at the start of the year and it got darker and darker. I questioned a lot of things, mostly my purpose, and God. However I after lots of long nights and feelings of doubt and fear I decided that I'd rather live my life believing that there is a God one who loves me and has a plan for me. Living with the hope that what I was feeling and going through was for my good and that it could help me become a better me (somehow). I realized that it was all up to me though. I had to choose to believe I had to choose to wake up and say I'm going to make today good. I had to decide that maybe my way isn't Gods way and be willing to try new paths and be open to new things. When I did, even though it was my darkest hour our sweet Cooper was placed in our arms. The dawn was bright, it was peaceful and I know it was God refining me those few months before. He knows how hard it is to be a mom and he was preparing me, I know it. He was helping me see that with Him I can do hard things and I can come out of them a stronger person. I know this is the worlds longest post but I just need to share that I know God lives. He loves us all, he sent us his Son to teach us and to die for us. The gift he blessed us with this year is one I will forever be grateful for. His amazing birth family especially his birth mom are so amazing and have blessed us more than I can say. We love them so much and are so glad they are still apart of our lives! Cooper is my dawn. He brings joy into our home that I didn't know was possible. As soon as I saw him I felt this feeling of familiarity, comfort like we were 2 pieces of a puzzle that finally came together. Thank you God for 2016. I'm a different and (hopefully better) person because of it. #2016 #darkestbeforethedawn #yearofmiricles #buckeyecoop #bestyearofmylife

Process. Destruction. Demolition. I often am filled with gratitude because of the opportunities I have to invent, imagine and make. So often before reinvention comes demolition.

"If you want results, make yourself very uncomfortable." - @chrisdowningfitness

Today I was uncomfortable. I woke up still very tired, sore from my workouts, and with a massive headache. This is the first time in my twenty-something years of life that I've completely cut out sugar + grains so my body is reacting. Although I was tempted to reach for something sweet as a quick fix, I know the first few days are the hardest and my body will soon begin to adjust and stop craving certain foods. And I'm not depriving myself of food. I'm eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, protein and healthy fats. I'm just cutting the things that we sometimes overeat + over indulge in.
-
So I pushed through. I pressed play on my cardio workout and did my best. And (unsurprisingly) I felt better after. The endorphins from moving my body made my headache go away 🙌🏼.
-
Even though it's only day 3, I'm proud of myself for sticking to my commitment (there was even green-tea layer cake at work tonight and I said no! But I did take a piece to freeze for my cheat-day in 2 weeks 😁).
-
Stick to your goals + commitments guys. Even when it's so tough. Do it for YOU. You set those goals and made those commitments for a reason. It WILL pass and you'll come out on the other side proud and stronger for it.

Clip from my song "Love Behind" and no it's not about my infatuation with booty 😏 every negative can be transformed into something positive #FTLOA #music #indy #acoustic #darkestbeforethedawn #art

✨Do me a favor, and hug someone you don't know today. The last time I did this, the woman was deeply moved and told me she felt like it was her mother hugging her.
.
We are all One. We are all God. We are all on the Path to the Kingdom of Souls.

The chaos is mounting, and that means we are each day closer to that revelation. When humanity will no longer tolerate hate and violence. When humanity will all embrace each other as a sister or brother, for that is what we truly are.✨

I remember this day like it was yesterday. It had been three weeks following treatment for anorexia, and I came out of the hospital ready to take on the world. Here I was jamming with thousands of other hopefuls getting ready to audition for American Idol. Many months later I made top 24 and proved to myself and everyone else out there that rock bottom never fully means the bottom, and there's always something brighter ahead.

A week about all the good you do: Tuesday
.
This is a no bull post.
.

A client once wrote of me, "She cuts through the bull crap like no one I've ever met". That actually means a lot to me, I'm real with you so you feel safe being real with me.
.
Some of you may not get this, but I KNOW some of you will.
.
The most important thing I can say this entire week about "all the good you do" is this....Do you know how good it is that you are here, breathing through one more day?
.
Once upon a time I was that woman who woke up in the morning and wasn't sure she had it in her to breathe through one more day. Ask my husband. More than one morning he's heard me groan as I woke up and said, "Oh crap, I'm still here". Depression is no joke, yet in that darkness you are still doing something good with every breath you breathe.
.

I know you're there, you're the one's who don't say anything, but I know you're there. You're the one's I do this for. So please, please hear me say this....The greatest achievement of your life is to have the courage to breathe through one more day.
.
Tonight, when you can check off making it through this day, when you lay your head down to slip off into that blissful place called sleep, here's what I want you to do....wrap your arms around yourself and said, "I am so proud of you for breathing today!".
.
Because breathing and heart beating are the absolute best thing you will ever do! .
X to the O...Bobbi❤️
PS: And please talk to someone. There's no shame in medicine and there's no shame in therapy😊

It's been hard to want to write music for the past couple years. I was too close to all these crazy experiences to see them clearly, let alone write about them in a song. Now I as I watch the sunset, I can thank the storm for passing through, and for making the sun shine again.
