All you need to do is pause, take a lovely deep breath and sigh as you exhale

This brings you into the moment. Back into your body and out of your mind.

Allow your breath to take you deep into the stillness of your body.

You can do this no matter where you are.

And when you can get out into nature and draw in its energy and strength.

How do you find your inner oasis of calm?

I didn’t know I had OCD until I let my kids hang ornaments on the tree wherever they wanted! 😳🙈🎄⁣

Luckily, Daddy reorganizes when they go to bed! Anyone else?!

Being outdoors is my absolute favorite! So thankful for quiet walks with the pup♡♡

Finding health and wellness hasn’t been just about changing my diet. I’ve also been focusing on doing things that bring me joy. Riding a motorcycle 🏍 is one of them. As the cold weather ❄️ has come, it’s something that I’ve really been missing. I miss the rush, the escape, the peace. The other day I had the opportunity to ride a dirt bike and I could not pass it up. So much fun and a sport I want to look into doing more of. I’m really looking forward to the warmer months ahead. In the mean time though I’m resting more, spending time with new and old friends, and taking things a little slower. Every day is a gift and I’m learning to find joy in them all, even if it’s not spent on a 2 wheels 😉. This is health. This is wellness. This is living! •

I hope everyone had a wonderful Sunday! Today was great. I love God's people. I love ministry. Grateful to be serving alongside & under people that are HUNGRY for God. He is so faithful! ❤

Christmas came early for this girl! I’m giving the gift of health and fitness to MYSELF this holiday season and it begins with these two items – this step and this box containing my nutrition plan and everything I need to be successful. Me and a tribe of amazing women have exclusive VIP early access to a total body fitness program and accountability group that launches in January. We aren’t waiting until 2019 to start hitting our goals, we are starting TOMORROW with a hybrid schedule of workouts to get us ready for this program! Excuse me while I hurry to bed – is it morning yet?! 😍

It's possibly the last thing you want to hear when you're in the thick of it. When everything is going wrong and it's hard and you can't begin to understand why. I get that.

And you might think that this saying is telling you that you shouldn't focus on the bad parts so much.

While I believe this to be somewhat true, I also believe that we deserve to (and need to, tbh) let ourselves feel the pain. Feel the sadness and confusion. Feel it extra hard if you need to. And then do what you gotta do to get through it.

Write. Paint. Run. Pray. Sing. Smile. Learn. Read. Explore. Travel. Cry. Exercise. Sleep. Clean. Cook. Drive. Jog. Dance. Frown. Talk. Scream. Laugh.

And find peace in the fact that you've gotten through every single bad day thus far. And you've only gotten stronger. So just know that your stronger days are coming, even when it feels like you'll never see them again. I'm positive of it.

Acts of Service:

I prayed to God to bring a word for my next post, the word I received came from Matthew 6:1-3. I hope these words resonate. I strongly feel that there’s no need for a long read.

Perhaps, it’s a word for the season!

Have a truly blessed week and season! 🙏🏽🌲

Caught these two tucked away reading Christmas 🎄 books together this weekend, Leona was telling Turner about Santa 🎅🏻 and elves & the North Pole. I pinch myself daily as I get to RE-live Christmas magic ✨ with these two this season, it’s by far the best Christmas yet.

If you had to vote for one of these four incredible, inspiring books to discuss with incredible, inspiring peers, which one would you vote for?
The 2019 ASPIRE Success Club was recently assigned this challenging task. I will share their results later in the comments, but for now I’d love to see which one YOU would pick! 😁

Thankful for Sundays & weekends of rest. ✨☀️🌿

When it snows in the south, you’ve gotta make the most out of it. Fun fact (of my life)! I went to college in Wyoming, and I am not totally sure if this is a thing. But the girls would get fresh snow and make a REAL snowcone or some sort of iced coffee using it! They were ready with the ingredients and everything!

As for me, I’m still in NYC. Heading back south tomorrow. I’ve been getting alerts on my phone about it being freezing down there. Is it true??? I’m not worried though. I think this city has primed us for thicker skin. Ha! I’m going to pop on over to my stories and show you all some of our adventures!

So much love for my new friend @annakhaddock here! She exudes joy and authenticity! Check her out in our Baby, It’s So Cold Outside sweatshirt!

Ah.... fresh faced, crisp and cheerful. I love repairing and refinishing existing sets. A deep cleaning, sanding, restraining and fresh coat of paint changes everything. I’m a lover of budget decor!
