Today the sky was magic ✨
It moved my soul into deep gratitude for the life in my breathe. Moving slowly tonight with a cup of tea & bedtime yoga, taking care of myself before I can care for others. Goodnight loves, see you when the sunrises. #selfcareisnotselfish

Ollie wants to know...have you taken care of yourself today?! #selfcareisnotselfish

There will be days where you question yourself, your path, even the people around you. There are days that will be harder than others and there will definitely be days you kind of just want to stop the world for a moment and reset. Even on these days we must keep going, keep fighting the good fight, & honor yourself & your path. Like attracts like so on these days, go ahead and go through your motions, reset, & renew the energy so you can go forward and attract the things that you like. Today that meant going for a hike, doing a nice flow on some fresh cut grass, & reading one of my favorite books atop of giant rock. πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’™πŸ’« #selfcareisnotselfish #mondayblues #bearmountain #harrimanstatepark #views

As my staycation comes to a close and after yesterday, I'm thinking a lot about balance and self-care. They're the real MVPs of a happy soul! 🌸✨ And creating the life you want is such a gorgeous process, bursting with magic and miracles! But losing balance and forgetting to make your own damn self a priority is the biggest obstacle to finding that bliss. I'm proud of myself for taking a break (first time in...well, ever. Lol) but I'm ready to get back to that #glittergrind! Balanced, rejuvenated, and filled with the determination of a unicorn trying to save an orphanage of kittens! [that's a fuck ton of determination πŸ™ŒπŸΌ] Hope you are giving yo' self all that love and consideration you're trying to give to the rest of the world. β˜ΊοΈπŸ’žπŸŒΈβœ¨ #selfcareisnotselfish #balanceisbae

Today's workspace. Getting ready/excited to announce my newest project. ✨#selfcareisnotselfish #earthmeetsbody

Ive been off line for a while getting my site fixed. My first post after some crazy things. Jesus has been taking care of me. Check out what I'm learning www.survivorsguilt.net/daily-bible-verse/73-july-2-stay-calm-because-jesus-handled-it #findpeace #findhealing #findyourvoice #selfcareissacred #selfcareisnotselfish

Here's a little snippet of a microblast that blew thru our area on Friday, sending down about 2 inches of rain in 15 min.

My worst fear was going back to our new house and finding a tree on top of it.
No tree, thank God. But I did come home to find my 2nd worst fear... water in our finished basement.

I don't know what sort of emotional state I'd be in right now if I hadn't started devoting an hour of my mornings to self-care last week.

The calm and peace I was able to find while cleaning up that water would not have been possible without the hours of prayer and meditation leading up to it.

If you're constantly on the go and not taking any time to care for yourself, you may be one incident away from having a breakdown.
Stop going the whole day pouring yourself into everyone else without devoting just a little bit of time to pour back into yourself!

On the path of rediscovering myself. Tbh I'm starting to like my new self and it makes me happy. #selfcareisnotselfish #roadtorecovery #imonlyhumanafterall #imperfectionisbeauty #longhashtags πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‚

I want you to listen to me very carefully: you are strong.
You are resilient and you are strong and you are powerful.
You just might not know it yet.
Earlier today, I was blown away by the strength of one woman in our community. I'm not going to mention her by name, but when she reads this, she'll know who she is.
"Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls."
I'm sorry for all of us that have had to suffer. I'm sorry that our system is broken and most of us stay depressed for longer than we need to.
But I'm proud as hell of how strong we are. And no one can take that from us.

Happy Wednesday 🌈

Happy Thoughtful Tuesday!

This week has been tumultuous, and it's only Tuesday! (Man I really love any type of alliteration.) We're heading out to celebrate our anniversary and my birthday. It's the first time I'll be away from our son since he was born really. I know we need a break as a couple, and I need a break from all the extra (unnecessary) pressures that I put on myself, but I'm freaking out people! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜” This quote from the new Be Your Own Beauty Hero is really speaking to me today, and calming my senses.
The act of self care has helped bring me out of a serious depressive period, and I would be remiss not to acknowledge the amazing power intention has on your psyche, your physical and emotional well-being.
It all started with the realization that I was literally doing NOTHING to nurture myself, in any form.
So I set out to find something that was going to force me to love myself on a consistent basis and I found the world of subscription boxes! I quickly became obsessed with all these pretty packages, quickly became overwhelmed with the crazy amount of deluxe sized samples my toddler would make off with, and QUICKLY decided to whittle down my subscriptions to just one. So I weighed the pros and cons, and realized my @beautyheroes subscription was my most valuable gift to me. The concept is simple, elegant, and spoke to my soul. I keep the Hero cards from every month too look through when I feel anxiety welling up within, for a quick calming and meditative moment to bring me back to a positive state of mind.
I know I've professed my love for the Beauty Heroes movement and my potential experience before, but this newest release from Beauty Heroes founder @jeanniejarnot, Be Your Own Beauty Hero has me some sort of way.

I'M LOOKING FOR 10-15 WOMEN ONLY✌🏼to be in my August "Make The Shift" Challenge Group. {Hey, school personnel: wanna make some jaws drop?} πŸ˜‰
But first... in the Before VS. After...
What do you notice?
Slimmer body and face?
More muscle tone?
You know what stands out to me?
The brighter eyes and wider, more "real" smile.
You know what causes that?
It's not just confidence from looking better, although that's definitely a small part of it.
It's mostly from hormonally FEELING better. I made every excuse in the book to avoid committing to Shakeology, a workout program, and a coached support group for 30 days (all refundable - what the heck was wrong with me.) "Don't have time, don't have the money, it won't work for me." Baloney -- we all have the time and money and the ability to make it work, some just make other choices... yup, there's some more of my tough love. πŸ’—
Truth is, you can invest in your health now, heal issues before they get worse and/or prevent issues... or you can invest later when there are problems, and this will probably be much more expensive and stressful. Choices...
Sadly, for almost a decade, I wasted lots of time, money and energy on things that clearly weren't working. I was happy on the surface but struggling with not feeling as I energetic as I wanted to be and I definitely didn't like the extra weight. Sometimes I had migraines, skin issues, digestive issues, sinus infections, allergies, and after my first pregnancy, joint pain and fainting became issues!
I keep hearing about people my age with major or multiple physical & mental health issues - we are too young for this!! 😱 But we are blessed to be in the USA, where we can definitely do something about it! Choices...
When I finally committed to the whole system: Shakeology, a Beachbody workout program and meal plan, and a coach to guide me within a small, private accountability group, *everything started getting better immediately.* These things work synergistically. You try to skimp on one, you won't have the same amazing results. 30 pounds lost and WAY better energy gained in 3 months, compared to a decade of chemical-laden non-food and exercise guesswork.
This is why (con'tπŸ‘‡)

"Don’t sacrifice yourself too much, because if you sacrifice too much there’s nothing else you can give and nobody will care for you."-Karl Lagerfeld has some inspirational words for us today. When we are strong sometimes people forget we too need support -don't be afraid to ask for help and set boundaries around over extending yourself.
Having the courage to ask for assistance is a mark of strength not weakness. (Yes ladies we are speaking to you especially mamas 😘) - (Lorenna Bra & Lenea Boy Short)

"You must learn a new way to think before you can learn a new way to be." - Marianne Williamson #mentalillness #healingtakestime

My freaking truth! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
I have an emotional attachment to coffee... black or bulletproofed only. β˜•οΈβ˜•οΈ Sometimes decaf because you DON'T want me over-energized! #ThankYouShakeo #LeslieKnopeWhenHyper
Squats keep my lower back pain and stress at bay! πŸ˜…πŸ‘πŸ‘
