MOST RECENT

A day late for #transformationtuesday but in my defense I’m so sleep deprived these days I think I deserve a pass. I took the picture on the left after an awful fight with my husband/abuser. I wanted to document how I felt because as many people in toxic relationships do, he’d hurt me and I would be devastated but then he’d show me the smallest bit of kindness or just less meanness and I’d forget allllll about it and forgive and forget. I wanted to give myself a tangible reminder of how that felt. Fast forward to today. I still have a long uphill battle but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. My son and I are free and I am happier than I’ve been in a long time. And I finally upgraded to an iPhone so now when I take selfies my eyes look like green moss in the Irish countryside so I guess this phone is aight 😏😏😏 #fhhlife #domesticviolence #survivor #dvawareness #domesticviolenceswareness #dvsurvivor #narcissisticabuse #emotionalabuse #warrior #stronger #iphone

I tried to explain to my mom the other night why I didn’t want her to read a certain book to my girls. The book, while well meaning, focuses on teaching kids to put others first-always. I just don’t want them to have that message in their hearts because it took me 35 years to learn that I should take care of myself. I should learn what my needs are, and how to meet them. I should put myself first before trying to care for others. And doing so is NOT selfish!
My children are kind and compassionate. And that’s enough for me. I don’t need them to become people pleasers to their own determine...like me.
How do you teach hour children to self-care? .

A N Y T H I N G is possible, but you have to make it a priority. ⠀

Instead of saying “I’m too busy”, try saying “I’m not willing to make myself a priority”. ⠀


It’s time to be honest with yourself. If you want to make the changes, you have to make the time. And it’s never been easier to do that than with our On Demand gym. Want to focus on core, upper body, legs..? We have countless options for each. Crazy day and only have 10 minutes to spare? Cool-we have workouts that will make you sweat, work and burn in 10 minutes. And our newest program- - 30-35 minutes a day. There’s no driving to the gym, searching for parking or waiting for a machine. It’s done at home. On your time. Fitting your schedule. ⠀


Pair it with our incredible superfoods, or maybe the performance line with our pre/post workout drinks, and not only are you making yourself a priority but you’re setting yourself up for S U C C E S S.



It’s time to make yourself a P R I O R I T Y. You know what to do 📥.

Wrap your baby up in the comfort of our Hope Baby Blanket, and use our Tote for easy storage! #threadtalk

That was a key argument in a felony trial against my abuser. His lawyer actually used the phrase “He loved her too much”. No he was not love sick. Call it what it was. (PC: @ncadv) #stoptheviolence #domesticviolenceawareness #dvsurvivor #dvawareness

Shout out to the guys that LITERALLY walked a mile in our shoes to support awareness against domestic violence at the Heel A Thon ♡
LLN Supporter and friend @goodalecompanyinsurance and I healed our feet yesterday during our meeting over a pedi...who needs an office for that? Not us.

I appreciate everyone's support, suggestions and prayers. I really do. I am not looking for sympathy. I am simply speaking my truth. I was in a very abusive marriage for 17 years, I left because my husband tried to kill me twice. I have severe complex PTSD as a result. I am on disabiliy.After I left my husband fought me in court for 5 years, 3 yrs to contest the divorce, to fight for custody and to not have to pay child support. He has been stalking me for the last 7 years. I have a lifetime restraining order against him and full custody of our kids. The restraining order includes our kids. My kids have significant special needs. I live in a state that doesn't have a lot (if any)of financial resources for domestic abuse. I am a trained advocate and I have contacted every resource that I know of. I have called the Governor, Senator's, Congressman etc. I can't leave the state I am in because I need the health care. I am still undergoing treatment for breast cancer. I also have protection from the courts,and police here. Which I will always need. I share my story very openly in the hope that I can help someone, that I can bring awareness to domestic abuse and financial abuse. I offer my personal support because I care. I am struggling and I don't know what I am going to do, but I know giving up is not an option. My kids mean the world to me and they depend on me. I can assure everyone that I have experienced every single form of abuse, to suggest otherwise is well... This isn't a contest. Everyone who has been a victim of domestic abuse, sexual assault, child abuse of any kind, please know that you are not alone. Your story, your pain, your struggles, it all matters. At the end of the day, hell is hell. I am always here and more than available to listen to your story. Please don't hesitate to message me if you want to talk. Stay strong with me.

LONG POST- I've been a mess thinking about what happened to #EurydiceDixon #ripbeautifulsoul
.
Its VERY close to home with me.. This is what community is ALL about, we are STRONGER together, our voices will only be heard and changes will only be made if we stand together.. I've cried & cried for @eurydicedixon & the 29 other woman that have lost their lives this year at the hands of men.. Now I'm crying writing this.. a lot of you don't know, I've been sexually assaulted not once but 6 times, I once was sexually abused in an alley way beside a night club in surfers paradise whilst people casually walked by as I screamed for my life, I was lucky enough to break free, I was held down on a park bench intoxicated and raped by someone I knew at age 17 (whilst his friends watched on) that I've never told anyone about, my friends and I have been jumped- where I have legit lost my shit taken off my heels and gone absolutely psycho attacking these men- protecting my girlfriends (adrenaline I don't flight I fight-thankfully), when I was a teenager and would walk the streets with my friends going from party to party I'd carry a little filleting knife with a plastic cover (luckily I never had to use it), I've saved a girl on a train from being abducted by a man who was dragging her to the upstairs carriage, I pretended I knew her said "hey babe, who's that and why has he got a hold of your arm like that?" The look on this young girls face was like she was petrified and had no idea who this man was!! I said "who the fuck are you cunt" with a rage on my face "get your fucking hands off her" I was 17 she would have been 15 he would have been in his 30's.. I had nothing to lose and I would have fought the filthy fucker to the death, I screamed into the next carriage two other men came cause they could hear me, we physically held him down & threw him off at the next stop into waiting guards, the girl stayed with me till her stop, met her mum at station I got off made sure she was safe then got on the next train.. I shouldn't have had to do that, it should NOT happen..
