MOST RECENT

From the conversations I’ve had with al of you, I’ve noticed we all want to be the best version of ourselves.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But comparison tends to get in the way.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We believe were falling behind or doing something wrong because someone else is a few steps ahead of us or started sprinting with an idea we had recently.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Or even comparing our journey to others. Acknowledging that they’ve gone through something similar but appear to have already overcome it, meanwhile we’re still in the deepest pit of struggle...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I just want to remind you that absolutely everything happens for a reason.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That person who’s a few steps ahead of you? She’s meant to serve as inspiration for you.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The person who’s running with your idea? She’s serving as proof that YOU can do it too, that it’s 111% possible.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The one who appears to have already moved past her personal struggles? Well, she’s showing you the strength that you may not be able to see within yourself - but it IS there.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We tend to put so much pressure on ourselves to be our absolute best that we forget to enjoy the journey.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I get caught up in comparison too sometimes. When I do, I try to remember that they’re living their own journey and I need to keep my blinders on and focused on my own path.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let your life be a little bit easier babe. I hope this week you can practice comparing yourself less, and enjoying yourself a bit more.

Isn’t it amazing what difference one year can make?
.
I started so many times... only to give up on myself. Each year would pass and I’d still be stuck in the same place. Until I decided to change my pattern. .
We all have the same amount of time in a day, yes some of us are busier than others, but it’s what we choose to do with our time that makes all the difference.

What will you do with your 86,400 seconds today? 😉💋

Took the girls to the creek today! I love watching them make these memories!
.
I remember swimming in creeks and catching little fish when I was little at my grandmas house.
.
Now they are playing in the creek!
.
I’m so glad they are outside being kids instead of sitting around on the tv, or phone, or computer...... currently what the teen is doing 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

What do you do after you have a cavity filled? Make home made apple cinnamon turnovers, and dust with sugar and cinnamon!

I’m a Chicago girl (born and raised), but Alabama is in my heart! So grateful for my family that fills my mind, heart, and belly with soul food. ❤️

I still feel the need to help this individual find his Missed Connection while in my hometown of Skaneateles (yuup I just admitted to growing up there. Its a beautiful place I hate the snarky comments) #missedconnection #skaneateles #maylovefindaway #helpacoupleout #smalltownlivin #countryraptunes #backwoods #hopingneitherisaserialkiller

The best part of our job is visiting small towns with big hearts! LIKE this if you live in a town that fits this description.

#selfiesunday with this gem! @brooklyn1199 freaking love this girl. Always a blast never boring.

This guy was the highlight of the evening. That and having a group of young girl scouts including two of my former students excitedly tell us about fire safety and having a plan. I love this little town. 💙

I’m glad that we can share these moments together even if it’s something as little as target practice. God willing we can fill our freezer this year. Being at my folks place makes me feel so grateful. I am content. Thank you Lord for gracing me with this life. #grateful #home #prairie #oregon #peacemaker @bisonunion #practice #huntingfamily #smalltownlivin @mathewsbowsinc @kingscamo #summernightsontheranch @fulllmetaljacob #stayhumble #sunsets #strawberrymountain
