Your vulnerability IS your strength! I'm so proud to be vouching for vulnerability these days and really living those 'walk it like I talk it' vibes (side note has anyone else seen the carpool karaoke with James Corden and Migos ¿¿¿??? It's so fun.)
.
.
ANYWAY Y'ALL. What is the thing within your heart that makes you come alive and super proud?? I'd love to hear and cheer you on😙

These are some of my dearest friends. My favorite humans. These are some of the very people that have shaped me into the woman of Christ that I am today. I am blessed beyond belief to do life with them here in Durham.
I have a unique relationship with each of these women and a unique deep love for each of these precious gems- all of that love comes from Jesus. We love because He first loved us.
I had a glorious time celebrating the start of my 31sr year with these beauties. Thank you Jesus. @summitchurchddcwomen

Once I figured this out, my whole life changed and opened up.
.
I know what my non-negotiables are throughout the day; I.e. training, gratitude, reading, etc.👊
.
If something is missing... believe me I know it!💯
.
I know what spaces energize me and where I can flow; I.e. faa, the beach, the woods, etc. 🌳
.
I know what people aren’t “qi suckers,” as in — we lift each other up rather than them sucking my energy dry.😜
.
If I don’t feel at peace, I’ve got no time for that... my well- being is my highest priority!
.
With a full cup, I can serve and give 🤲 from the overflow.
.
I’ve never been happier!🙃

🍏A different kind of Freedom Friday🍏
.
Believe it or not much of our freedom can come from letting go of the beliefs and stories we tell ourselves.
.
Freedom also comes from:
.
... letting go of the things we cannot control...
.
... letting go of the need to control...
.
... letting go of being judged!
.
Open and vulnerable time... scared as hell and at the same time a very easy share... allowing my heart ❤️ to speak rather than my brain 🧠 and letting the words flow.
.
<<<Deep breath>>>
.
The longest relationship I have ever had has been with myself.
.
It’s the last important relationship that I will ever have.
.
It’s been 37+ years.
.
We’ve had some very good times, some not so good times, lots of learning, lots of laughter, lots of triggers, lots of communication, lots of growth, lots of tears, lots of feeling, and stretches of feeling nothing at all.
.
The second longest relationship I’ve ever had began over twenty two years ago.
.
It was the summer after my freshman year of high school. 🏫
.
We’ve been separated for some time, but every so often the voice will creep up into my head and I get to talk it out, release control, and move forward.
.
I can’t tell you EXACTLY when it started or why... only that I had a strong need to control every single thing in my life.
.
And by everything... I mean EVERYTHING!
.
I thought 💭 it was possible.
.
That relationship was an eating disorder.
.
I won’t try to call it Ana or Bull or Ed or the many other surnames possible.
.
Those are just stories and although similar, the ways people are affected and/or diagnosed are different.
.
I was good 💪 in sports.
.
I was very smart in school.
.
I was reliable and a very hard worker.
.
I had friends.
.
But I still felt shy and weak and that nobody liked me.
.
I was a people pleaser.
.
People reached out to help, but I denied 🙅 it and wanted to be left alone.
.
I wouldn’t allow myself to accept outside help.
.
I felt like a lab rat 🐀 and that people were always watching me.
.
“These are the statistics,” they said.
.
“This is what happens,” they said.
.
This how you’ll be “healed” \ “helped,” they said.
.

I am better today.
.
I am better than I was yesterday.
.
I will be better tomorrow than I am today.
.
I am present to the feelings that I am feeling.
.
I understand that I can (and will) make an impact on this world 🌎, no matter how big or small.
.
I want to do great things and I’m working with and building a tribe that is doing just that.🔥
.
I understand that the smallest action and the biggest hello can have an effect.💗
.
I do my best to smile 🙂 at people... you’d be surprised by the response...
.
Sometimes you get a smile back... sometimes you get nothing... and sometimes you get the mean mug. 🤷🏻‍♀️
.
It doesn’t matter to me — I go on with my day.
.
I knew from the time I was five years old that I was a healer.
.
I am introverted by nature, but put me in a particular environment and I open up, dance around, and am purely myself.
.
There’s nothing that I would rather be.
.
I know my strengths. I just get express and utilize them more.
.
I love lifting people up and bringing them with me.
.
I love motivating, even though it comes down to each one’s mindset all their own.
.
I’ve got a plan and I’m mapping it out... one life, one triangle, one smile, one peri, one word, one life at a time!

🎶🎶 Two questions 🎶🎶
.
When I’ve got a big decision to make, two questions come to mind:
.
What’s the worst that could happen?👎
.
What’s the best that could happen?👍
.
I really feel into both the answers.
.
I create the scenario for each and what ultimately makes the decision is how deeply I am ready to throw myself into the fear of what may happen.
.
Fear is pretty much created by the stories we tell ourselves, but will those things actually happen... who knows⁉️
.
For example: a few years ago, a friend of mine wanted to ask her boss for a raise. She had been with the company awhile, was a hard and efficient worker, and felt she deserved it.
.
What’s the worst that could happen: he says no, he lets her go, she’s out of work for months, etc.
.
What’s the best that could happen: she gets the raise, she gets more than she asked for, she gets promoted, etc.
.
So what happened? She asked to speak with him and was actually let go that day.
.
What⁉️⁉️
.
She was upset at first, but being let go from that position allowed her to start the company she had always wanted to start and last year it brought in nearly one million dollars 💵.
.
Another example: two friends had been close for years, knew everything there was to know about one another, were each other’s sounding boards, but didn’t want to “ruin” the friendship by being anything more. Something was building though.
.
What’s the worst that could happen: they begin to hate one another and never speak again.
.
What’s the best that could happen: they fall deep in love and spend the rest of their lives together.
.
They decided to take a chance, have been married for more than ten years and have two wonderful children.
.
I took a chance on starting a new sport a few years ago and fell in love with it — thank you @pelletier_fitness 🙏
.
I took a chance on professional degrees and I’ve got enough paper to map the walls in my house.
.
I am tired and at this point I just don’t care anymore and want to be done.
.
I love the art of healing and I am good at it, but standard medical practice aggravates me and I plan on doing something different... my way and adjust.
.
(Cont ⬇️⬇️⬇️)

I AM!!!
.
We are what we think and believe we are!

A rare video for me tapping *in the wild* (aka at broadway dance center lol). Thanks to @jillkenneydance for the choreography and constantly supportive energy in tap class. If anyone is looking to get into tap but is overwhelmed by the prospect (as I was), she is definitely the teacher to trust! I am excited to finally be able to take the L2 class comfortably in heels and be able to get through the L3 classes in my Oxfords because of her!! Also how fun is this song?

Grainy video and I feel slightly awk posting because dance isn’t my strongest suit, but I am challenging myself every day and learning and growing. That is what matters. Keep showing up and keep yourself open!

Do you feel the ache? The push and pull? Your ego vs your ❤️? I was taught: “Don’t chase the man. Let him chase you”. Ughhh. That just feels so....yuck. Where does vulnerability fit in here? How can you even begin to deepen the connection if you‘re not allowed to feel fully? While I’ve thrown my childhood teachings out the window, every now and then, an inner voice rears its’ ugly head and doubt kicks in. But to that voice I say, “I get that you’re trying to protect me and I thank you for that but my 45 year old self is wiser than my 18 year old self so I’ll go with the former” 😁 There is a place for the ugly in healthy relationships. Go there and test it out. #relationships #romanticrelationship #love #partnership #romance #marriage #spiritualpartnership #evolvetogether #vulnerabilityiskey #bevulnerable #deepenconnection #soulmates❤️

You can do magic believe or not… by simply working on you.

Call me nuts. Call me crazy. But it’s true.

We are taught to go to school, get a job, work for years and then retire, but no one really ever discusses with us the importance of self-care and the love of what we do.

I used to think this way too.

Self-care was thrown in the back seat… it even hid the trunk a time or two.

It was work, home, more work, make some money, work, maybe some sleep, repeat, request vacation, robot, repeat, walk on egg shells, work.

I lost myself in all the confusion.

That was until I set a standard for my life.

This standard has allowed for: *Freedom
*Travel
*Choice
*Adventures
*Possibilities
*Student loan pay offs
*Memories
*Time to do what I want
*Contribution
…and more!

I stepped into a space:

where ease and flow are common statements.

where aligned action is our catch phrase.

where our personal development focusses on allowing abundance to flow freely.

where support and community are our backbone.

where we create a legacy business to leave to our loved ones.

I believe in aligned action from flow.

I believe that if you want to get out of a space of anxiousness and struggle, you MUST do something different to change your state.

I believe that if you ever want to leave a legacy and create true wealth you MUST look at multiple income streams.

I also believe that you have a choice!

If you want to create ‘True Wealth’ in all areas:

Financial  Health  Community  Contribution

Then simply do what I did and watch a webinar and follow the map! 🎉I WATCHED A WEBINAR THAT CHANGED MY LIFE.🎉 I’m currently creating history!

IF YOU are ready to TAKE YOUR FUTURE INTO YOUR OWN HANDS and learn how to crack the code to high level income online?? Would you give yourself the gift of watching a webinar that could completely change your life too?

My business partners have put together an EPIC live webinar that will teach you – 💥 HOW TO CRACK THE CODE TO HIGH PROFIT INCOME ONLINE WITHOUT BEING A TECH OR SALES PRO. 💥

🧠 It's not about finishing what you start, it's about starting something that you never want to see finish! 🧠
.
Notice this — .
Some of the best things in life come the most natural.
.
They are not forced!
.
Do you have any idea how difficult life becomes when you force anything to go 'your way'⁉️
.
Sure, it may bring immediate satisfaction, but it won't last and you'll lose the best version of you.
.
Don't do that!
.
Love 💗 yourself enough to know what's best for you and your light will shine the brightest it ever has.
.
It took me a long time to figure this out.
.
I hid the magic.
.
You may have seen the smile.
.
You may have seen the tough girl powering through.
.
You may have seen the good grades and the clinical ease.
.
You may have seen the sports fan and athlete.
.
But I felt empty inside.
.
My flame 🔥 was dim.
.
I suffered from anxiety.
.
I overthought everything.
.
I was working 80-100+ hour weeks.
.
I wasn’t sleeping.
.
I was constantly worrying about food and money and pretty much anything you could think 💭 of.
.
I hit a low, drew a line in the sand, and began nurturing the flame 🔥 that had all but died out.
.
I made a decision that I couldn’t work for anyone else anymore.
.
I had to work on and for me first and forever.
.
I discovered it was possible and there was (is) a vehicle out there to get me where I want to be... manifesting my dreams.
.
I’m not into fancy cars and diamond rings, but I will take traveling the world 🌎, eating the best food 😋 to nourish my body, working from the beach 🏖, training on my schedule, and spending time and working with family and friends... wherever and whenever I want!
.
Sounds good to me!😁
.
It’s not work when you love what you do.
.
And I get to be me all day, every day... helping others do the same... and I like that!
.
.
🔥💗😋💗🔥

Why is it so many people these days see all negative ahead when something “bad happens?
.
I guess that’s how most of us are trained from an early age...
.
I know my brain 🧠 would tend that way for the longest time...
.
I didn’t get an A on that test, I’m going to get yelled at by my parents and fail the class...
.
I can’t find a job... I’m not good enough... etc.
.
But that was just chatter. It was just a test, my parents wanted the best for me, and I never “failed.” I found jobs. I am enough!
.
There can be good and bad in every situation... it all depends on your perspective.
.
When something happens, good or bad, we get to use it as an experience to learn from.
.
Yay, this is going so well, I see the vision of goodness and fortune ahead.
.
Blah, this is going so bad, I see nothing but continued misfortune ahead... why does this keep happening to me...
.
NO, stop 🛑, reset!
.
What can I learn from this?
.
What good is there in this that I am presently not seeing?
.
There is still a vision of goodness and fortune in our future... we just get to choose it.
.
For example, I previously talked about being fired from a job I had. I still had the “bad on bad on bad” stuff keeps happening mindset and bad stuff kept happening... looking back now, it was a good thing that it happened when it did... I was sick, tired, bored, and miserable... getting let go removed me from the environment that stirred up some of those feelings.
.
Last year my car broke down on the way to a final. Instead of panicking, I pulled off the highway, just as the engine went, called AAA, texted a classmate as well as my professor, and waited. I went immediately into solution mode — and everything got taken care of — my car got towed, I found the money to fix it, I got to drive around in a lovely rental, and I got my car back almost as good as new.
.
Those days when I seem to hit every red light 🚦on my way somewhere... I will get there when I get there.
.
I can’t sleep 💤, I can read, work on my business plans, follow up with clients on the other side of the world 🌍.
.
I lost a match... I’ll go for that open shot next time... there are plenty of more tournaments.
.

To be nobody but yourself — in a world 🌎 which is doing it’s best, night and day, to make you like everybody else — means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting!👊

Be a lady they said. Your skirt is too short. Your shirt is too low. Your pants 👖are too tight. Don’t show so much skin. Don’t show your thighs. Don’t show your breasts. Don’t show your midriff. Don’t show your cleavage. Don’t show your underwear. Don’t show your shoulders. Cover up. Leave something to the imagination. Dress modestly. Don’t be a temptress. Men can’t control themselves. Men have needs. You look frumpy. Loosen up. Show some skin. Look sexy. Look hot. Don’t be so provocative. You’re asking for it. Wear black. Wear heels 👠. You’re too dressed up. You’re too dressed down. Don’t wear those sweatpants; you look like you’ve let yourself go.

Be a lady they said. Don’t be too
fat. Don’t be too thin. Don’t be too large. Don’t be too small. Eat up. Slim down. Stop eating so much. Don’t eat too fast. Order a salad 🥗. Don’t eat carbs. Skip dessert. You need to lose weight. Fit into that dress 👗. Go on a diet. Watch what you eat. Eat celery. Chew gum. Drink lots of water 💦. You have to fit into those jeans 👖. God, you look like a skeleton. Why don’t you just eat? You look emaciated. You look sick. Eat a burger 🍔. Men like women with some meat on their bones. Be small. Be light. Be little. Be petite. Be feminine. Be a size zero 0️⃣. Be a double zero. Be nothing. Be less than nothing.
.
Be a lady they said. Remove your body hair. Shave your legs. Shave your armpits. Shave your bikini 👙 line. Wax your face. Wax your arms. Wax your eyebrows. Get rid of your mustache. Bleach this. Bleach that. Lighten your skin. Tan your skin. Eradicate your scars. Cover your stretch marks. Tighten your abs. Plump your lips. Botox your wrinkles. Lift your face. Tuck your tummy. Thin your thighs. Tone your calves. Perk up your boobs. Look natural. Be yourself. Be genuine. Be confident. You’re trying too hard. You look overdone. Men don’t like girls who try too hard.
.
Be a lady they said. Wear makeup. Prime your face. Conceal your blemishes. Contour your nose. Highlight your cheekbones. Line your lids. Fill in your brows. Lengthen your lashes. Color your lips. Powder, blush, bronze, highlight. Your hair is too short.

***Have you had the LINE IN THE SAND moment where you say to yourself:
.
"Enough is enough!”
.
I remember mine like it was yesterday...
.
There was a time in my life when I closed myself off to the world.
.
I didn’t feel like I was good enough for anybody, least of all myself.
.
I was tired, lost, and searching for my purpose.
.
Student loans piling up, work scarcity (I was deemed “overqualified” for most things.), and after being punched in the gut and tested more times than I can count, I didn’t know what my purpose WAS anymore.
.
Schooling definitely wasn’t helping and my car literally died on the way to a final…
.
Then something happened that turned it all around!
.
A few months ago, I came across a video of a 20’ something yr/old friend of a friend, earning $20K per month and traveling around the world all from his laptop business... 🤔 Now I’d seen lots of videos and ads like this before, but for some reason this video got to me.
.
It made sense to me that more and more people were coming online every single day, and that more and more people were buying products and services online.
.
It made sense to me that companies were paying affiliates commissions to drive customers to their products.
.
It made sense that instead of a company spending $5 million for a 30-second Super Bowl ad, that they could have an army of affiliates promoting their products for small commissions off each sale!
.
This 20yr old, plus millions of others around the world have found a legitimate way to build a business online by doing exactly that, and I wanted in!
.
Long-story short, I chased down his mentor, who just made his first million doing exactly what I’m talking about.
.
I spent every day since then, tuning into webinars, connecting on zoom calls, learning the skill sets needed to build a long-term sustainable business online.
.
Now I…
