On this episode of Instagram VS Reality we're going to talk about {TWO} words...Carbs & Intent. Today marked Day 1 of my own EmpowerSHIFT journey and for me, that meant stepping on the scale. Da...da...daaaaaaaaa! As I looked down, I couldn't deny the numbers staring back at me...179.2! I had gained 14 lbs in the past 14ish days! 😡 This is where we start talking about the first word we all love to hate...{CARBS}! πŸžπŸŸπŸ•Yes, that one little word that sounds kinda adorable caused me to fluff up like the Marshmallow Man! Please note over the past two weeks I did not binge like a crazy lady. I simply reintroduce the typical American diet back into my life and whaaaalaaaa! My waistline expanded! During this time I exercised EVERY DAY and consumed only water! This goes to show just how key nutrition is in your transformation! #absaremadeinthekitchen Now, I bet you're wondering why I'm not losing my mind over this epic two week weight gain?! This brings me to our next word...{INTENT}. Every night before I go to bed I thank the Universe for my day. I think on all the wonderful little moments that brought a smile to my face, meditate on them with a sweet smile, and slowly drift off to sleep. Yes, it's as magical as it sounds! The following morning I arise and set the {INTENT} for my day. I think of how I want to feel mentally, physically, and emotional so no matter what life throws my way, like a 14 lbs weight gain, I can handle it with ease, stability, and comfort. When you live a life of {INTENT} you don't sweat the small stuff because when your mind is focused on how you want to feel, it works to make sure you're in a constant state of that feeling. So when I stepped on that scale and saw that dreaded number, I didn't lose my cool because I know I will continue to show up for life regardless. Remember, energy goes where intention flows. If you want a positive, stress less, meaningful life, you must consciously {CHOOSE} to create it! The choice is yours, so choose wisely! Be Bold | Be Brave | BeYOUtiful Always πŸ’‹ Kari Leigh

This picture was taken days after Efrain's brain surgery when he was learning how to walk again. He didn't do anything without the support of his Mom and Dad. We were there every step of the journey. Efrain showed so much determination in his fight. Cancer didn't define Efrain, the way he fought cancer did. PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE. Be part of the movement.

Never been more grateful for these humans. Had one of the scariest weekends with Branson being in and out of the ER, but sometimes trials like this make you realize that the trivial things that we get caught up in are not worth our time or stress...We have a more clear image of what's truly important in life. Branson is on the mend and feeling better every day. Thanks for the outpouring of love, service and prayers! We are very blessed. ❀️#dontsweatthesmallstuff

Had a good visit today! Was reminded that the very things some people complain about, others would rejoice in! Don't sweat the small stuff!

You're gonna' have shit days. There's no way around that (trust me, I've naively tried.) Minor inconveniences, bruises and blunders. And days where the literal bottom falls out. Tragedy, heartbreak and loss. As a human, as a parent, you'll experience both ends of the spectrum of these external life circumstances. But the center point of all of these "situations?" Will be your attitude and your approach. Despite pain, discomfort, irritation and rage, you CAN still surrender, accept, allow and give thanks. You can even be on your knees in despair and STILL witness beauty, kindness, compassion and grace. Just takes a little awareness of how you react to the small stuff. So you can practice shifting your mindset for the big stuff that comes along❀️Not easy, but doable.
(And if you go the River Market Co-op in Stillwater? And try to get everything in one bag? Like I always do? Just double bag that shizzle. Seriously. Those eggs aren't cheap.)

Just saying... I personally am not easily offended. It would help if we all learned to laugh more. If someone is unable to ruffle your feathers it takes away their power over you. 😊 That is all. #laughmore #adulting #dontsweatthesmallstuff #leadership

Smile. Simple actions and words can have the biggest impact. #kindness and #gratitude for the simple things embrace the larger blessings in life. Dreams made manifest. #justlove all that is. Enjoy the process and the experiences, the people and situations created. -jh #jennhillmanreflections #wanderlust #simple #simplethings #dontsweatthesmallstuff
