We knelt down, and we didn’t just pray—we pleaded. It was probably the strongest prayer we’ve ever said together, just to help us get through.

"The next day we had a miracle occur, and the blessings kept piling on. We were given so many things for our future daughter from our friends and family, and Darren was able to find some contract work. We really thought that those things were a direct blessing because of our prayer.

"Advice I would have for people who feel like there’s no way forward—who can’t see what the future’s going to bring—is that the most important thing is to have faith in your relationship with Heavenly Father, and Jesus, and the gospel.

"No matter what I’m going through, whenever I turn to Jesus Christ and have faith in Him, everything seems manageable. I never know what’s going to happen, but things always work out.

I was married to a beautiful woman, working at a dream radio station yet I managed to mess both of those up. It took a while to forgive myself on both accounts before I was able to move forward. Meanwhile, across the country, families were losing loved ones, innocent people were losing their lives, and the world was about to embark on a chapter that we had no idea was going to happen until the first plane struck.
We can’t cry enough tears to bring back what we’ve lost but we can always remember the good things that impacted our lives at the time.
My heart still hurts for those around the world whose loves were changed on September 11, 2001. We must stand together as a country united not divided. We’re not always going to agree on things but the current climate has a heightened sense that something catastrophic can happen at any moment, and that sucks.
Please work on loving more instead of trying to find flaws in people and things. This also applies to me as well. We’re not perfect but we can work harder on being united instead of divided.

Today I said goodbye to my great aunt & best friend Leslee.. I sang the song I wrote for her, I placed a frangipani flower on her casket, and said my farewell. And it was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my life.
Not many people can say that they knew a great aunty, let alone had a close bond with her and I’m so grateful I was able to share 15 years of memories I will never forget...
Memories like coming into my room to find my underwear on my fan or any other countless practical jokes you would play on me, swims at the beach, hilarious photo shoots and fashion shows, the clothes you would pass down, singing our hearts out to our favourite songs, our deep conversations shared over a coffee or two, and so much more that wouldn’t fit in this post. For all my life you have supported me and constantly encouraged me in music opportunities and songwriting. Knowing you’re not going to physically be by my side for the years to come is heart wrenching. After going through the hell of breast cancer 10 years ago, to go through cancer again was a war. Out of all the people I know, you were the last person I ever thought this would happen to. I’m so relieved that you’re no longer suffering pain anymore, and that you’re now in a better and more beautiful place. A place that’s best for you.
Singing and crying my eyes out to dreams last Tuesday, a special song that Leslee and I shared, truly made me feel a lot of emotion and even then I knew.
Although you’re not physically here, you’re not gone, I know you will always be in the room next door. You brought family together today, and it was one of the most beautiful things I’ve witnessed. Family I haven’t seen in over 10 years... And for that, I am grateful.
You have taught me so many valuable lessons that I will continue to carry on for the rest of my life.
To the strongest, most courageous, hilarious and loving woman, aunty, mother, grandmother and friend I know... Thank you. I love you endlessly, and I’ll make you proud in everything I do.

Mizpah and rest easy my gold dust woman, my gypsy and my dream
you truly did always live life on the edge of seventeen

Taking the ‘all out’ approach and opening G3 fitness, words can’t really put together the things we have accomplished this year. We set goals for the year and had them all covered by August which gave us room to make more goals. 2018 for G3 was a stepping stone, 2019 for G3 will be a game changer & for those who know or have heard, yep... keep talking cause the rumors are true 🔥😏

To my darling girl, this year wouldn’t be anywhere as amazing if I didn’t have you by my side day in day out. You jumped into the unknown with me and we have achieved so much it’s been amazing. Opening G3, getting engaged & now with a bubba on the way & what we’ve been together for like 18 months 😂 when you know, you know and it’s clear we both like making moves. I thank god everyday for sending me you because together we can do anything we set our minds too, between you me and the knuckle head mexican we call Charlie boy we make an amazing team 👩‍👦‍👦❤️

2018 has given me alot of momentum and confidence going into 2019, I’m a big believer on anything thats suppose to happen for you, will. And if it doesn’t go to plan, god will show you sooner or later why that didn’t work out the way you thought it should. For anybody wanting to pursue something in 2019, start surfing, open a business, get fit and healthy, set goals and build that mindset on achieving them, please don’t hold yourself back.

If you feel like you need help in taking that leap of faith into the unknown and don’t know how to unlock the tools to do so, I’m one message a way and am more than happy to give you all the knowledge, motivation and experiences I have to help you in doing so ❤️🤙🏻

2 things I will admit I am taking from and going to improve on is spending more quality time with family and friends, they always say the first year of business is the hardest and I couldn’t agree more. I feel like I’ve done the grind year of putting all my energy into the gym and it’s paid off but now I let the workouts and the concept do the talking and will be able to make more time for family & friends.

Have an amazing new year 🔥

I started this year by ending a toxic relationship, I graduated from studies that I wasn’t enjoying and left a job in an unhealthy company. This year I turned 20, I’ve found real friends and for which I am grateful. I became an auntie of a little angelic boy, I traveled to new country. I’m still working on my self confidence, still working on my self. 2019 is going to be a big year, by moving in a city on the other side of the world, having some adventures there by myself, going out of my confort zone, discovering a new culture and people. I hope I will be able to study new things in the city that want. Thank you to everyone who has been part of life this year and for still been here.
A lot of things are about to happen and I am ready for it.
Thank you ❤️

We didnt really take any pictures today but not to worry cause pretty soon were going on a trip and trust me, theres gunna be tons of photos. Well based off of my bio you can see that today was our 3 year anniversary, why did it have to be a monday? Seriously tho I hate the beginning of the week, but it doesnt change the fact that we've been together all this time, over all this time I've learned so much abt her and also myself, if it wasnt for her I wouldn't be where I am today, and if it wasnt for her I also wouldn't be thinking abt how much better I want for myself and our future. In this photo you might see a dog... a funny looking one, and that is actually our new dog WHICH I HAVE STILL NOT MADE A POST ON, his name is Toby, I will make a post abt him soon. I wonder what kind of things are waiting for us this next year, I mean this past year alone I've been through like 6 cars, what's gunna happen throughout this year 😂 man idk how she puts up with me with all this crap going on, shes 1 in a million, being out there with me working on cars through the heat and cold, idk many ppl that do that, I love that I can teach her things and she listens, I feel that I can talk to her abt anything and I feel so comfortable with her, isnt that all you need in life? Just someone you can talk to and enjoy your passion and life with, that's all I need and as long as I have her, I'll be the happiest I can ever be in my life. I love you babe 😘

You feel like you have to start over, not knowing what's going to happen next.
.
There are times where everything's going great. It seems like you're finally going to have the perfect life.
.
And there are times where you're kinda just going with the flow. You've had enough failures and victories to know that everything could change at any moment. At the same time, you're truly enjoying the season you're in.
.
That's how I feel right now. I always thought I would end up an actor. Then, I wasn't successful enough, so I went into filmmaking. Then, it felt like I wasn't good enough, so I went into business. Then I finally felt happy, but both my acting & filmmaking career came back knocking at my door with opportunities.
.
So many beautiful things are happening to me right now, I don't know where I'm going. That's the truth. I don't know what I'm meant to be doing. But that's OK, cause I have faith, I know that I am exactly where I was meant to be. I'm doing exactly what I was supposed to be doing right at this moment.
.
I don't know what's going to happen next, where I'm going to be tomorrow. I'm at peace with that. I have a vision of the personal life & business that I want of course, and I'm working towards that vision every day, but I'm willing to revisit this wish as many time as needed if I'm taken somewhere else.

But scrolling past these cluster of pictures once in awhile gets me going on a feel trip. Not necessarily how I looked in that picture but the dedication I had back then. Understandably my dedication still lie in the gym but more so in other aspects of my life now but looking at this picture I can feel again the happiness and sense of accomplishment I had proving all my doubters wrong and thanking everyone who stood by me. Just barely 21, had no clue what I was going to do with life or let alone if bodybuilding was even the answer, but even now as I remember I had some sort of smart ass smirk or smile always on my face because I knew regardless where the journey was going to take me, it was my path and no one else’s was going to stop me. I’m not as nearly as shredded as I once was but I still have that same fight in me. Things will always happen in life that try to drag you down, but all you can do is follow your own path to your success regardless how difficult it is because when you finally power through and achieve your goal, nothing is going to be more satisfying than that smile of knowing you did it that no one can take that away from you.
Let nothing hold you back, even the person in the mirror..

Me and my friend went to this vintage fair yesterday, and it was awesome. It was smaller than the last one, but I really enjoyed it because we planned our shared birthday! We are going to do Disney references (even though we will be 15), we are going to put little name tags things and give them all a disney character, then put quotes on the inside fri that character (like sassy quote,cute quotes ect) so they can randomly say them in a sentence to keep the disney theme going! 😂 that probably won't happen and it will just be me quoting disney (as usual) but you know 😂. We are going to give everyone a disposable camera (because our friend group are talented with keeping drinks In glasses 😂) and put "take pictures with me" tags like the "drink me" tag in Alice in wonderland 😄 we are also going to put in the invitation "don't be late for this very important date" another Alice in Wonderland reference! I'm so excited I wanted to put it all up here 😂 I'm acting like a child because I can't wait 😁😂

“HATERS CONFIRM GREATNESS”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here’s my thoughts on that topic.
People CAN’T STAND when you make them uncomfortable.
People can’t stand when you actually do what you say you’re going to do BECAUSE you are a direct reflection of what others AREN’T.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you show up & get results in life, many will try to slow you down rather than encourage you because you are a direct reflection of what they DON’T HAVE or never will have due to THIER self limiting beliefs! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you finally hit your goal, get the job, or make the team…
Many will turn around and call you LUCKY because they refuse to take personal ownership for not being willing to put in the work to attain those things.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As you grow in success (whatever that might be to you) don’t be surprised as the crowd that you once called friends, grows smaller and smaller.
Don’t be taken back as those “friends” start turning into haters.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s not something that can be avoided.
If you don’t like that fact, then stop becoming better.
It’s a fact of life, it’s whats going to happen, PERIOD.
You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.
For every person that loves you, there will be another who can’t stand you, simply because you’re YOU.
Simply because - you. are. awesome! :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN & when it does realize it’s not a reflection of you, it’s a reflection of them. & Remember, as you continue on and stand up for the things you believe in you will find yourself building a tribe,
and as that tribe grows many will start to despise you, simply because… people LOVE YOU! TRUTH.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
People who don’t even know you will start to make lies about you & will start to poke fun at you.
But every time that happens, I encourage you TO TAKE ANOTHER STEP UP THAT LADDER!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of my greatest mentors once said…
“Michelle, the higher you climb, means more people can see you & fire at you. Stand firm in truth & be strong.” Friend, today I encourage you to climb higher.
I encourage you to stand SO STRONG in your beliefs, that you rattle people to their core. — CONTINUED IN COMMENTS

Lately I’ve been realizing more and more that the best things that happen to us in this life are never the ones that we’re tying ourselves up in knots for, striving for, or trying MAKE happen by our own force of will. 🙌🏻
They aren’t the ones where we’re beating our heads against the brick wall just trying to get somewhere, someone else has already gone or check another item off THEIR list. And they certainly aren’t the ones that we think we’re “supposed to do” based on what success looks like for other people.
❤️
No. What I’m starting to learn about this life is that the BEST things that happen to us are the ones we don’t even see coming. The ones we couldn’t possibly plan or strive for. They come out of nowhere, land in our laps, knock down our front door… and that’s how we know that they are ours. That they’re part of OUR story, and how it’s meant to be written. Not just a bad copy of somebody else’s. 👊🏻
And guess what? Those things that are meant for you, the ones that are actually meant to be part of your story? They are WAY better than anything you thought you were striving for to begin with. World-rockingly, higher-calling, purpose-driven, “oh I can see it now, that’s how it all fits together” BETTER than anything you were striving for to begin with.
👇🏻
More than anything what I’ve been learning, is that when you loosen your grip on how you think it’s supposed to go, when you let go of trying to plan every step to get you where you think should be going, when you pry your fingers out of that comparison game …that leaves you with an open hand.

And it’s just a whole lot easier for God to give a gift to an open hand than a closed fist.

Today, open your hand to what you’re being called to do, not what you’re supposed to do.

Open your hand to the better story that’s being written for you.

Trust me when I say this, it will hit you when you least expect it.

If you’re chronically ill and in school, you may have already figured out a system that works for you on most days. Even if that’s the case, sometimes a flare comes out of left field and you’re left scrambling. These are a few things that I’ve found helpful in surviving extra bad days during the school year. A lot of this also applies to acute illness whether you’re chronically ill or not.
Maybe don’t study
Are you going to make yourself feel worse if you study now? Is pushing through going to jeopardize your health? Are you just feeling too awful? If so, it’s okay to let things go for an hour, a day, a week, or longer.
You come first. Always.
Medicate
Do you have PRN or OTC medications that can help with symptom management? Have you taken your daily meds? Do that before you try to do anything else. You’re going to be able to get a lot more done (not to mention the fact that you just plain won’t feel as miserable) if you take whatever medication you have available to you rather than trying to tough it out.
Check in with yourself
Have you gotten some sort of nutrition? Are you sufficiently hydrated? Do you need to close your eyes for a few? Do whatever is accessible to you in the moment to take care of yourself.
Prioritize
What absolutely has to be done now and what can wait until you’re closer to your baseline?
Are there things that you can get an extension on? Professors that are more lenient with grading? Classes you have opportunities for extra credit in? Does it make sense to skip class and use those spoons to get work done? On the assignments that you have to get done now, is there anything that you feel comfortable doing a mediocre job on just to get it done?
Figure out what’s the most important and go from there.
Communicate
If you’re going to turn things in late, miss class, need an extension, or just want to give your professor a heads up that you’re not feeling good and X may happen as a result, shoot them an email. The sooner the better, but it’s infinitely preferable to send a last second email asking for an extension (or to send one after the fact) than not to send one at all.

“But Caryn, how do I become sure of myself? How do I stop self-doubt?” I’m going to be honest, you don’t stop it. The self doubt gremlin is always going to be there.

It’s going to try and whisper it’s untrue, irrational thoughts in your ear and try to distract you from staying true to who you are.

But my friends, it’s YOUR CHOICE whether or not you listen.

It’s your choice to execute your power.

What’s the worst that could happen if you say “yes” and try?
-
This morning I was talking with a friend about a superpower I have where I •ALWAYS FIND A WAY•

While yes, that was kind of a joke, I’m definitely not super human, the truth is I can literally remember the day that I realized that if I want something, I will literally find a way to make it happen.
-
We all have the power to do this!
We all have the ability to get resourceful when it comes to achieving the things we want, but too many people stop at the first sign of fear.
The first sign of “oh this is hard”
This first sign of uncomfortability or the first setback.
-
Stop waiting until you’re ready.
Ditch the all of nothing mindset and stop giving up after the first setback.
Stop using money or time as an excuse. These are just convenient ways to stay stuck in your current situation.
Stop expecting it to be easy or comfortable.
But do expect it to be worth it.
-
When you refuse to settle, when you refuse to get comfortable, when you embrace the challenge, that is when you step into your power.
-
This is my little bit of tough love for you for the day. Sometimes you have to wake up and own your excuses…So let me ask you...
-
Who are you?
What do you want?
And what excuse do you have to break to get there?

______

Some things have to be fulfilled
When it’s all done, it will all come together for the better

Your story is still being written
Don’t put a period where God put a comma
We can’t predict what God has in store for us
Because you haven’t experienced those breakthroughs that shape you
When you’re speaking about all these greet things that happened in the future; unimaginable, life changing events, there will be that one section where you explained HOW EVERYTHING CHANGED
Following God doesn’t make everything perfect. There will be disappointments
Things won’t unfold how you expect
You start questioning if everything is real
Was it made up?
Is it ever gonna happen?
Why is it taking so long?

You’ve been disappointed so much that when that word for your future comes, it’s hard to believe it
Something so wonderful is going to happen that will erase all of your past let downs. Everything will change
There are things that will happen that you don’t even know about yet
You’re about to walk into your time
you’ll move differently
Faith, Power, Victory -Be in the right place
-Be with the right people -Be in a place of gratitude. Thank God in the wilderness. The enemy tried to rob us of thankfulness. This current life may not be what you wanted it to be but it could be a lot worse like it was before. Stop comparing yourself. You have your health, your strength, you’re protected, you’re alive
*You have no idea of the weapons that were formed against you that didn’t prosper*
Don’t let your almost keep you from God’s utmost.

I don’t have it all together, I don’t have the perfect amount of money in the bank, my house floods and my dog is currently obsessed with killing iguanas. I say this because there is never the perfect time to do something and there will always be a flip side. I fell in love with ST 14 years ago and knew I would end up here one day. Things don’t have to happen right away. Plant the seed, be patient (I am not) and the things you love and want will happen no matter how big or small. Feliz Año Nuevo mis amigos. May all of your dreams come true 🌴❤️🌴

You are never given a chance to speak your mind –Sometimes an argument saves a relationship, whereas silence breaks it. Speak up for your heart so that you won’t have regrets. Life is not about making others happy. Life is about being honest and sharing your happiness with others.
You are frequently forced to sacrifice your happiness –If you allow people to make more withdrawals than deposits in your life, you will be out of balance and in the negative before you know it. Know when to close the account. It’s always better to be alone with dignity than in a relationship that constantly requires you to sacrifice your happiness and self-respect.
You truly dislike your current situation, routine, job, etc –It’s better to be a failure at something you love than to succeed at doing something you hate. Don’t let someone who gave up on their dreams talk you out of going after yours. The best thing you can do in life is follow your heart. Take risks. Don’t just make the safe and easy choices because you’re afraid of what might happen. If you do, nothing will ever happen. Chances must be taken, mistakes must be made, and lessons must be learned. It might be an uphill climb, but when you reach that mountaintop it will be worth every ounce of blood, sweat and tears you put into it.
You catch yourself obsessing over, and living in, the past –Eventually you will overcome the heartache, and forget the reasons you cried, and who caused the pain. Eventually you will realise that the secret to happiness and freedom is not about control or revenge, but in letting things unfold naturally, and learning from your experiences over the course of time. After all, what matters most is not the first, but the final chapter of your life, which unveils the details of how well you wrote your story. So let go of the past, set yourself free, and open your mind to the possibility of new relationships and priceless experiences.
And the one thing you should never let go of is hope. Remember what you deserve and keep pushing forward. Someday all the pieces will come together. Unimaginably good things will transpire in your life. #Inspire #Motivate #BB #BillionaireBreeder

We have something very big and exciting happening soon, which we are going to be sharing shortly. In fact, we are filming the video about it today. Any guesses? When big things happen (and this is a *really* exciting big thing) life tends to get stressful and we are trying to manage as best we can with everything going on, work and sending Riley to daycare in a couple of weeks. Social media is full of happy couples and families doing perfect things. It annoys me. Arguements happen. Things aren't always picture perfect. I still fall for this illusion sometimes when I see a post, too. And it sucks because it's a sliver of someone's bigger picture (and oftentimes, a very contrived sliver). I count my blessings and live a wonderful life that I have worked hard for, but I never want you to believe it is perfect 🤗. Chad and I try to smile, joke, support one another and have fun when stress levels run high. But yeah, we have to have conversations, negotiations and do our best not to push each other's buttons. Tonight we headed to improv class and that will be a great relief! How do you manage stressful times at home? .

It’s Monday... yesterday you said you would start today. It’s finally time to start taking action towards making your goal real. You told yourself that this would be the time you really dig deep and make it happen! But you wake up and are tired af and the rationalizations start flooding in to you brain as to why you can justify waiting another day to begin. But wait... yesterday you did the same thing yet today you want to put it off again...
🤔
Reality Check: IT is NEVER going to be the RIGHT TIME to start. That moment you continue to wait for where you feel like doing it and the circumstances are perfect is NEVER going to come. You have to start right now in the present moment or your goal is never ever going to be accomplished. No hesitation allowed. I promise you tho if you begin now it’s going to be very hard... so hard all you want to do is quit, BUT if you outlast that feeling just a little longer than you think you can stand it something amazing is going to happen... there is going to be a shift in you where you grow stronger and your mind begins to work for you instead of against you. Your actions will become much easier because you have now harnessed the power of your mind! You are now the creator of your life... your unconscious mind is no longer in control and now you simply steer in the direction you want to go and your wish is your command. Block out all negativity and let every good positive thing you experience and create motivate you to continue killing it! Times ticking... today is the day things change. Let’s go baby!! Happy Monday :)

On this exact day last year, I made a post about missing opportunities in 2016 and how I wasn’t going to let that happen in 2017... And my, did I surprise myself.
This year I decided not to let anything slip and push myself out of my comfort zone into things I’ve never done before.
I competed and got a lot further than I expected in a number of music competitions, played one of my dream roles in a school musical, started a youtube channel, organised a visit to a music university, did some open mics/gigs here and there, auditioned for a community theatre show and got a sub-main, and so many more music and acting things in between... There were so many things I did this year for the first time, and I can surely say it won’t be the last time I’ll be doing them.
With all my ups this year, there have also been many downs. I suffered a lot of heartbreak for a multitude of reasons. From family, to deaths, to relationships, to school, there were countless of situations that could easily hold me back. However, I learnt to wipe away my tears and keep moving forward every step of the way. Letting go of grudges and not moping over the past brought me so many opportunities and brought so many new people into my life.
For anyone who has stuck through with me, through my laughs and through some tears this year, thank you, because when I thought I had no one, you were there ♡
My plan for next year is to keep pushing myself in positive ways. I hope to achieve more things, write more songs, perform at more places, and continue to pursue doing what I love most. I’m very happy to say that I don’t regret taking every opportunity given to me this year, and I aim to keep it that way for the years to come.
Without music in my life, I would not know where I’d be or who I’d be... Thank you so so so much for all the love and support so far along my journey, I’m so excited to see what comes next! - p xx

I like to know how things are going to happen & when they are going to happen, but we have to remember who is ultimately in control. We have to know in our hearts that His plan is so so much bigger & better than our own! I take comfort in knowing these things & I challenge you to do the same! Stop letting life stress you out & trust that God is going to help you through it. He has your life planned out & knows what’s best! :)) thank you so much @legitcindyb for making me this doodle to hang up in my dorm room as a constant reminder of trusting in His plan for my life 💕

Do you live to work - or work to live? 🤔
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For the first few years of my entrepreneurial journey I would lock keep myself inside for hours on my laptop.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hunched over I pecked on the keyboard, trying to make things happen.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I closed myself off from the outdoors, going out, and having fun.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I thought this was the way to succeed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, I realized that as I cut off things in my life, I also cut off my motivation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I started experiencing massive pain and couldn't figure out why I couldn't breakthrough and achieve.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What I finally realized was that it's crucial when moving towards a goal or better life, to 'taste the dream'.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What I mean is that you want to actually start experiencing some of the things you will have or do once you already succeed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
By giving your mind this 'preview' of what's to come, you will find yourself fired up to make things happen.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Taking action will become way more effortless, and you will be able to swiftly achieve greater and greater things.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Start giving yourself time each week to have fun, go out, LIVE.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This time will do wonders for your motivation, and allow you to achieve the life you want a lot quicker and easier. 💯

God is Watching Over You

Even in the middle of your hurts, habits, and hang-up, God is watching over you. "Surely your goodness will pursue me ." - King David is not saying, "Surely only good things are going to happen to me!' He knew as well as anyone that bad things happen to good people.
David's point is that only God's goodness will follow after, or pursue, him. No matter how bad, or evil, or difficult something seems, God will work it out for good.

It's one of God's great promises that he's given to believers: We know all that happens to us is working for our good - if we love God and are fitting into his plans (Romans 8:28). If you're a believer, the Bible says all things are working together for good -- not that all things are good -- but working together for good.
There is no difficulty, dilemma, defeat, or disaster in the life of a believer that God can't ultimately turn toward his purpose.

To succeed in any thing an individual must have a 'compelling reason.' You either chasing something or something is chasing you.
.
.
.
.

Why do you need to be serious about making money with what you know. You need to because the old economy is gone, this is the new economy.
.
.
.
.

Change is here and in this new economy you can either be among those who make things happen or get left behind with those who watch things happen or who are wondering what's happening.
.
.
.
.

The old economy was about trading our skills through a corporation, the new economy is about taking your skills straight to the customer.
.
.
.
.

The old economy was probably about just going into a job as an employee; the new economy is about going into that job as a 'CEO in training.'
.
.
.
.

The old economy was about having people come to get the products & services, the new economy is about taking the services to the people.
.
.
.
.

The old economy was about oil & gas, regular hotels & taxi companies; the new economy is about alternative energy & apps like airbnb & uber.
.
.
.
.
The old economy was about manual work & operations; the new economy is about branding, strategy, sales & marketing.
.
.
.
.

The old economy was about probably just focusing on your 8 to 5 job; the new economy is about making money from what you call your hobby.
.
.
.
.

The old economy was about thinking of mentoring people at the end of one's career; the new economy is realizing that you can be a mentor NOW.
.
.
.
.

You can share your knowledge online & get paid for it. It will take work, consistency, guidance, belief in yourself and a heart to serve people with what you know.
.
.
.
.

YOUR GREATNESS IS VERY SURE.

I encourage you to be brutally honest with yourself here for a moment…
.
How have you treated your body on average so far in 2018?
.
How are you feeling in your own skin?
.
Are you controlling your stress?
.
Are you feeling energized?
.
Have you been regularly moving your body?
.
Are you fueling your body with things that make you feel your best?
.
Are you using food as only fuel and not out of emotions or stress?
.
Are your clothes fitting comfortably?
.
Did you reach the majority of the goals that you set for yourself going into 2018?
.
Did you spend more or less time with the people you love … your family and friends?
.
Did your confidence expand … or shrink?
.
.
I want you to be honest with yourself for a second. This is a process I continually try to do myself. Take a second and sit back, stop scrolling, and give yourself some time to process the answers.

I couldn’t answer yes to all of those in my past. I wasn’t feeling great. I wasn’t full of energy. I wasn’t confident in my own skin. And I wasn’t doing the daily things that were going to help me become my best self.

But I began taking small steps. Not perfect steps. Just tiny steps. Despite the chaos, curveballs, and crazy calendar. I began realizing that change will only happen (and continues to happen) when I took (and continue trying to take) action every day. It’s a harder choice some days than others to make though.
.
I’m on a continuous journey to becoming my best self. Who’s with me?
.
This September, are you committing to taking steps towards that best version of YOU?? 🙏🏻💙
.
Ps: I’m putting on a free training with the 3 Strategies to Reignite Your Genes and Get Lasting Results (when no other program or diet seems to work), this week to help you take that first step in the right direction. I’d love to see you there. Are you in? Click the link in my bio if so, and let’s create change together. —> @freshfitnhealthy #freshfitnFREE #freshfitnhealthy

I WILL BE MORE PATIENT WITH MYSELF!

You're probably wondering when will things change? When will it start to get better? Well I have great news for you, the blessings you deserve are about to arrive right now. So much will be lifted off of you. Changes might not happen right away, but it ALWAYS does. Sometimes it takes time to test your patience. To see how ready you are to step into change. Nothing is being held back from you. Everything is happening for you even when it seems like it's against you.
We're so stressed out these days, because we believe everything needs to happen right now. We forget that everything happens in perfect timing. We always want everything to happen instantly. If we don't see anything changing on the outside, we start to lose faith in the power to manifest our reality. We even might start doubting if it's even real or possible. You can't plant the seed and instantly pull it out to see if anything is growing. Your role now is to water the thoughts, habits, and beliefs you want to manifest externally. Soon you will see what you've planted come into fruition. We have to be more patient and more trusting as we are doing the inner work. You are making a lot of changes in your life and the energy of your mind, body, and soul is shifting to a higher frequency to align you to new experiences, new habits, new people, new energy, and a whole new mindset. Everything will suddenly change for you. It will all happen. However, your number one focus right now is to continue making the changes and don't give up on yourself. Keep watering your seed. Give yourself the space you need to reconnect with inner-self. Now that you're going to be more patient, you'll be allowing the work to be done through you and for you. Soon you will notice the results of your efforts. You will see how powerful you are. You will notice that you have the ability to fully transform your life. Give yourself credit right now. You're on a beautiful journey.
Comment if you're going to be more PATIENT with yourself!

After over a year and a half of writing, editing, and panic attracts, my first book Make It Happen is making its way to the printer today 🎉🎉🎉
.
How do I feel? Oddly calm. I’ve worked on this baby for such a loooong time, and as enjoyable as some of the process was, there were parts that were downright horrifying. Writing Make It Happen was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my life.
.
I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to give up and quit. Oh the sweet irony of writing a book called Make It Happen when all you want to do is hurl your laptop across the room!
.
But I did it, and now it’s done. They say writing a book is a similar emotional experience to giving birth. I haven’t done that yet, but man do I ever have new respect for the mamas. .
Giving life to something that’s going to live outside your body and be and do what it wants to do is frightening AF! What if people think the book is bad, or don’t get it...or what if it blows up and I get to meet Oprah?! Success and failure are equally scary because they are unknown.
.
What I do know is I worked my ass off on this thing, and what people think of it is none of my business. This book is part of my journey and proof that when I set my mind to something I pull it off. It’s not usually the way I plan, or the way I even want, but I DO IT.
.
Make It Happen launches in bookstores, and online November 6. You’ll of course also be able to buy it at @makeitshow and at @consciouslab. .
Thank you to everyone who supported me on this book writing adventure. It’s was excitifying (exciting 😆 + terrifying 😬). I’m going to celebrate, party, and not think about how much I hate Microsoft Word all weekend long 🥂🍾💃

This week has been one medical roller coaster.
.
I realized that my health can immediately take me out of my seat of self.
.
All week long I was in a constant state of wondering what’s going on with me, dreaming up the worst possible scenarios, only to have none of them happen.
.
I know better than to lose myself in these times, but it’s easy when you’re in a lot of pain and unsure.
.
The Mind races for answers to what’s wrong leading you no closer to the truth.
.
But it can feel so true!
.
Moral of the story- you waste a lot of good life when you’re freaking out about things you know nothing about!!!
.
This week was my time to freak, now I’m going to analyze why this happened to me.
.
Time for some evaluation of my deeper self.

This question was put to me the other day and I didn’t get it.

You say you want to do something ‘one day’ .... but ask yourself …. how long have you been saying that to yourself about certain things?

I'm sure something comes to mind.

Something you've been meaning and wanting to do, but which doesn't seem to ever happen.

The reality is that the things we put off until ‘one day’ never actually happen.

So start today.

Make today day one.

Stop the excuses, the reasons why you have to wait, stop with the procrastination, banish the fear and uncertainty and though you’ve heard this a thousand times before…JUST DO IT.

Take one small step today. Another tomorrow. And keep going.

Tell us...what are you going to start?

Share your goals, writing it down makes it feel more real. Trust me.

Thanks to @heykelseyj for sharing this incredible shot with #ladiesgoneglobal 💚

I've been really struggling with the emotion brought on by what's been going on south of the border in the past few days. I feel sad, I feel frustrated, I feel angry, I feel worried and the list goes on and on. The world is getting to become a scarier and scarier place each day, with seemingly little to no chance of a brighter tomorrow with how things are currently going.
Each time this happens, I continue to ask myself the same why and how questions that I'm sure you all ask as well and I'm sure we come up with similar responses. But each time we hear the same responses they grant us less and less solace and it makes it more difficult to deal with.

I'm not an advocate for calling for violence when situation like this happen because I believe it takes away from the message of change that we all want by turning those who are perpetrating these disgusting acts into victims rather than keeping the light on how cowardice their actions are and what fuels it.

Those who try to detract from what's going on by saying "all lives matter" do so out of ignorance and are not willing to admit that there are real systemic issues that need to be addressed in our society. Instead they hide behind the slogan of "all lives matter", and use it to make it seem as if we are devaluing any other race by saying #blacklivesmatter, which couldn't be further from the truth. We were once labeled us 3/5 of a person and we've been fighting for equality and to been seen as equal value as those who have oppressed us from the inception of slavery to the present day and the fight rages on.
My hope is that one day all lives will matter but it wont happen until all lives are treated with equality. So until then it's #blacklivesmatter #oppressedlivesmatter

What would going all in look like for you today?

I can't deny that Jesus has been asking me this very question this week, and I know that if I don't make the decision to say yes to what He is asking for, than by default, I will be saying no to all He wants to do and has in store.

Going in for me means trusting and believing God more with who He is, and being honest with myself about what I allow to get in the way and hold me back.

I have to admit, I still sometimes struggle in areas of my heart, believing that I can receive good things in life from Him, just for being me. That He gives good gifts, not because what I do, or who I am, but because it's what HE does, and who HE is. That, He desires, and WILL, help me to get to where I want to be, simply because He loves me and, thats how our Father/daughter relationship is supposed to be.

Yes, going all in for me this week means believing and trusting Him with my worries, my trust, and the lies I was taught to believe, knowing that resting in His big arms and listening to Him tell me the Truth, about me, my life, and Him, is the only real place He wants me to be.

You might have a fear you need to let go of, a relationship, a hurt, or something you know God is asking you to do. Or, you might be like me, where you grew up believing that you could only get good things if you deserved them, or earned them, which has caused you to not trust God with certain portions of your heart or life, thinking YOU need to make it all happen on your own. Forgetting how big God is, and that, He sees you, is in complete control, and He never intended for you to walk this journey alone. Whatever it is, friend, whatever is holding you back from going forward, fully believing, trusting, receiving, and being ALL in. Let it go, with me, today, and let the lyrics of this song have the last say!

“So, I step to the edge and I take a deep breath
We're all dying to live but we're all scared to death

I'm going all in
Headfirst into the deep end
I hear You calling
And this time the fear won't win
I'm going, I'm going ALL in”

“All In” by @matthewjwest

You know what I’ve realized? I’m actually extremely grateful that some things didn’t work out the way I once wanted them to. I think one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned in life is that some things really do fall apart so that better things can come together. I know it’s a cliche saying that people say all the time, but I really do think it’s true. . . .
So if you’re going through something right now and you think your whole world is falling apart or it seems like the odds are eternally against you, maybe consider the fact that it’s because it has to happen in order for the better things in your life to come along. Maybe it’ll happen immediately. Maybe it will take some time, a long time even. But if there’s anything I have learned, it’s that things will get better. Sometimes, a lot better and will actually put you directly on the path of exactly where you’re meant to be. ...

Is that it is completely, utterly and normal to go down (we are all but tiny little humans in a gigantic crazy and very OVER-stimulated world after all). To not feel that light you may normally feel and to simply go in and find out what the flip is going on. Dive into that well of our own being to see what comes back to the surface afterwards. Over the last few years I have ‘expressed’ a lot, from three books, to photography, people, painting and just in general, it’s been very outward. The Sun comes up, it gives life, then it goes down to recharge, allows the Luna to honour the night sky and take guard. We are both the Sun and the Moon, and we have days and we have nights that rise and fall within us. The biggest things I have taken from the lowest point that I reached, is that it needs to happen, everyone will experience their personal lows during life, no one can escape it. But acknowledging it is essential, you can’t brush it aside and pretend like it won’t come to surface again. I felt horrible, like I didn’t care if I was here or not, lacked motivation to do simple things, but I owned it, and above all I spoke about it. When people asked me “how I was going?” I answered truthfully and I was humbled to hear many people in return say that they too weren’t going through a so bright period in their day. But if I wasn’t truthful and said I was good, they too would have probably said the same. Honesty is fundamental, if we are truthful we are operating from a loving vibration no matter what the situation. When I was at the lowest point, all I could do was look up and see how far I had come since my last bout of extreme depression when I was 18, the mountain looked just as magical from the bottom as it does from the top, different perspectives, same journey. I’m looking forward to returning to the peak, as we all do. I can also feel the channel opening and a fourth book manifesting in the worlds we cannot see as I go within, but for now what a beautiful life it can be. Thank you Sunshine, Ocean, books, coffee, the simple things that make each day worth waking up for tomorrow x

I am beyond grateful to everyone who pulled me up from everything shitty that happened in 2017.
I have ticked the major items from my goals for this year:

1. FARAH MODELS & FARAH MODELS CAMP are two (2) of the most amazing gifts of 2018 for me. These are the best reasons to believe that dreams do come true. And with that, I will keep dreaming of bigger and better things.
I really started from the bottom — with P200,000 debt (because I manned up to the responsibility that was left for me and guys, absorb this: a debt is a debt. Walang kaibi-kaibigan, pay everything that you owe.) now I’m almost done paying and the companies have a good amount of savings. YEY!
2. QUALITY TIME WITH FRIENDS & FAMILY. I wrote this down in my goals because I tend to work, work and work. I never had time to be with the people I love because for one, I didn’t have a lot of money to spend and two, I felt like I didn’t deserve to have a good time because I wasn’t financially comfortable then.
Though 2018 didn’t end too well for me, it made me realize that I have a lot of growing up to do. So in 2019, I intend to continue the good things that I’ve done and do bigger and better things.
1. Watch out for what’s going to happen next with FARAH MODELS & FARAH MODELS CAMP.
2. TRAVEL MORE. I’ll be starting this with a solo backpacking trip on the week of my birthday.
3. TAKE CARE OF MY HEALTH and well-being.
4. Start a charity because a lot of people need help. I’ve been in the worst possible situation and if not for the people who helped me, I wouldn’t be able to get back on my feet. With that, I wanna pay it forward.
The rest will be a surprise!
Ciao 2018, you’ve been very good to me! Hello 2019 in a few days, I can’t wait for all the beautiful things you have in store for me.
Who’s excited for 2019? I sure am!!! 📷 @no_name_ph 💄 @mihnacarla

The whole journey has enlighten me. It enriches me as a person. It humbles me even more. The past two months I spend here has taught me things I will treasure my whole life thru.

I didn't see it coming.
But I have fallen for this city and everyone I met here. All good things come to an end, but memories will last. So Imma cherish it while it lasts.

When something extreme happens, life goes on. In this case, extremely amazing. It's been 2 weeks according to the date (really didn't feel that way). But what also matters is how it goes. Even after a miraculous event in life, people can go all ways. Get carried away and forget other life aspects exist. "Moves on" as if nothing happened. Or bring it to change all other aspects of their lives, making it better, which I try to do, grab the positive energy and immerse it into my life. But then it's life. Bad things happen. In mine, in yours. Your life is yours but the world ain't. But I noticed something. From what amazing things happened. From amazing people. If you change how you see things, it changes life by a few miles. I was ecstatic, quite questionable, when I realized that I didn't post a thing on it. I probably don't seem to really have changed much. I'm just trying, cause what happened, gave me relieve on life. Of course, it really be unexplainable, words can't explain how I felt. People, love, movement, music, joy, have me appreciate life more. I started living off guilt less, when doing things was only to get life bearable. I start living on appreciation more. Capoeira expressão. Love and gratitude to those making it possible, especially my closest people in @gcbitb @gcb_telkom and Meu Prof @rebel_damone, also the furthest who made it here for the love of the game, @itaboraarts @malagueta_cbsfp @capoeirabrasil831 @natalialockwood and @itsboomtime . In hope that my effort makes it a turning point. Proud of myself that I can still go on, and proud of the people in the journey who keeps it going as well. Na jornada de vivar, muito obrigado.

We All have had people switch up on us with family members, so called friends, failed relationships with former & even current love interests. Some situations with jobs, failed business ventures & missed opportunities in life, period.
Your future can be better than your past, but ONLY IF YOU WANT IT TO BE ! You will Never Know What or how good your book of life can be if you keep rereading the same chapter over & over again. In other words, if you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’re going to keep getting what you’ve always gotten ! Nothing New or great rarely ever exists in YOUR COMFORT ZONES.
I tell you everyday to leave your past exactly where it is & where it belongs, in the past. To Stop looking back because you’re no longer going that way & how time doesn’t go back it goes forward. As much as the truth hurts it’s also necessary, past relationships rarely change when you go back to them, no matter how much you love that person or how long you’ve been with them, it may be time to move forward with your own life.
It may be scary, but the things that you prayed or are praying for to be fixed God wants & keeps it or them to remain broken so that he can give you & them someone or something new that is better for you & them. Don’t think for one moment that God only does things for you in unbalanced situations. God does things for everyone including those that things didn’t work out with that are no longer part of your life.
Bad things & life altering things happen to good people & good things & life altering changes happens to bad people. But eventually THE BEST IS YET TO COME ! What is coming, will be better than what is gone. One way or another, either by a blessing or your karma depending on your actions, The universe will always give Everyone exactly what they deserve !

What’s up guys! So update, I’m in Pennsylvania, and I’ll be in New York to move into my dorm by tomorrow! I’m honestly terrified. no one ever tells you about how hard getting into the car and leaving home is, especially when you know that you won’t be home for at least a couple of months. My life is at this massive precipice and it’s really scary because reality and my grip on the future feels sorta slippery(?). That probably doesn’t make a lot of sense but, I know I’m at a quintessential point in which I could change my life for the better, I can chase my dreams, or I can give into this overwhelming anxiety and give up after a week 🤷🏼‍♀️. It’s truly terrifying because for the first time I’m actually investing in myself and my ability to be brave and grow and live on my own. As someone who couldn’t stay the night places without having a massive panic attack from the ages 9-17, and hasn’t spent over 3 days from home since she was 7, this shit is scary. but that’s okay. I’m 14 hours from my home, I know no one in the city, I’m not quite sure what’s going to happen, but I know what I want to happen and it’s something I’m willing to fight even myself for. I guess what I’m trying to get across is- college is scary. It’s not all excitement and dorm shopping. College is money. It’s waking up and realizing your mom isn’t going to take you to the doctor when you get sick. It’s forging connections that your goals rely on. It’s a lot of self-trust, and as someone who has had mental illness since I was 8, it kinda seems like this impossible Herculean task. I’m not the girl I used to be though, and I’m going to do something I’ve never tried before. Whenever things get hard I’m going to keep going, because I already know what it’s like to give up. I’ve done it a million times. And just this once I’m going to find out what happens if i push forward. And I hope that you guys will try this with me too. Together we can all//just//not give up.

I had my first “speaking engagement” and it felt SO GOOD. Being able to share what I do and talk about this amazing community is something that I’ve always dreamed of doing. You know it’s funny, I’ve been telling my closest friends about how I want to start doing some public speaking and share my story to younger girls/women and all of a sudden, I get an invitation to be on a panel. No application, no nothing- just an invite. 🙏🏼 and while I wasn’t a keynote speaker or anything, it’s a step towards the right direction & I’m going to celebrate. I feel as though we get so caught up on celebrating the “big accomplishments” that we forget to celebrate the mini-milestones along the way! Take a minute and celebrate yourself today. Remember, you deserve it!✨

Now, lets keep this celebration train going- I want you to think of a friend that’s been working really hard towards something, tag them and just celebrate them! For whatever reason! It can be big or small! Let’s hype each other up! We need more of that in this world. I’ll start in the comments section! ❤️

Before I go though, I just want to remind you of something. Y’all, the universe listens. So make sure that you’re speaking about the things you want and not the things you’re fearful of Because believe it or not, one of those things are going to happen and it might as well be the things you want!❤️
Huge thank you to @westhoustonyp for having me! I had an absolute blast!✨

Got a whole lot of things to do before my trip tomorrow, but first I gotta take care of me, my top priority. 💪🏾
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Motivation to work on my physical health comes and goes in waves for me these days. There are weeks where I’m dedicated, checking off the boxes for all my workouts, and “making shit happen”. There are also weeks where I could care less about sweating it out because I’ve got to work on things more imperative to me like what’s going on in my heart or mind. There was a time in my #fitnessjourney when I thought food and exercise was the key to fix it all. I now know wholeheartedly that it was just a tool to help me understand how to make choices that were beneficial for my body, but it wasn’t the only way to fix what was going on inside.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I recently read “You can eat all the kale. Drink all the alkaline water. Take the supplements. Do yoga. But if you don’t deal with the shit that’s going on in your heart and head you’re still unhealthy.” My soul was singing while she read this because it resonated with me so deeply.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So this upcoming week I’m encouraging you all to workout some of the things that’s going on in your heart starting by letting go of the feelings and emotions you suppress. Find the courage to speak your truth even if it’s painful, messy, and complicated. The truth with always bring forth clarity. But if speaking is hard at the very least write it down. Journaling is a very powerful tool that can help unravel some of twisted thoughts and emotions in your heart. It can help bring clarity to the ambivalence in your mind and set forth beautiful action and change. In a few posts back I said I was turning pain into power. You have the ability to do the same. 😘 #gofitjo

The universe is getting ready to bless you and bring you great opportunities. Don't resist the process even when it doesn’t make sense. Don’t be afraid to let go, flow, and allow. Take the lessons. Do the actions that are necessary and watch what shows up. Pay attention to the signs. You’re being guided to where you belong. Everything will make sense. You'll look back and be glad that you set the intention that something great is going to happen for you.

This has been one hell of a summer, just like all of them. I tell people my birthday month is cursed. Bad things always happen, and it seems neverending. This year was especially hard, because while there were so many wonderful things going on, it felt like life kept throwing new obstacles in our way-emergency surgery for me, ambulance for Brent, Ralph had to go to the emergency vet, our movers charged us almost twice the initial quote and didn’t bring a large enough truck, leaving us to figure out what to do (and how to afford) getting the rest of our things to NC. Then, family health issues, more money troubles than I can begin to tell you, a canceled trip to see family in Florida...a trip I really needed for so many reasons...but sometimes I have to just take a step back to realize that despite the curse, things aren’t so bad. We are all here, doing well, finding ways to make money to survive off of, and are happy. Maybe, just maybe, we will get through this and there will be a light at the end of this tunnel. #vscoedit #vscogram #vscocam #vsco #momlife #mom #girlpower #depression #trauma #vsco #vscocam #momlife #motherhood #motherhoodunplugged #honesty #parenting #parenthood #instamom #uniteinmotherhood #instamama #motherhoodunplugged #selfie #momswithtattoos #momsofinstagram #gradschoolproblems #gradschoollife #phdlife #phdmom #phd #whatever #birthdaycurse #cursed

This tho 💗💗💗 A few important rules to teach your daughter • Travel light through life. Keep only what you need.
• It’s okay to cry when you’re hurt. It’s also okay to smash (some) things; but, wash your face, clean your mess, and get up off the floor when you’re done. You don’t belong down there.
• If you’re going to curse, be clever. If you’re going to curse in public, know your audience.
• Seek out the people and places that resonate with your soul.
• Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
• 5-second rule. It’s just dirt. There are worse things in a fast food cheeseburger.
• You are a woman, you can do anything you put your mind too. • Happiness is not a permanent state. Wholeness is. Don’t confuse these.
• Never walk through an alley alone. • Be less sugar, more spice, and only as nice as you’re able to without compromising yourself.
• Can’t is a cop-out. • Hold your heroes to a high standard. Be your own hero.
• If you can’t smile with your eyes, don’t smile. Insincerity is nothing to aspire to.
• Never lie to yourself.
• Your body, your rules.
• If you have an opinion, you better know why.
• Practice your passions. • Ask for what you want. The worst thing they can say is no. • Wish on stars and dandelions, then get to work to make them happen.
• Stay as sweet as you are.
• Fall in love often. Particularly with ideas, art, music, literature, food and far-off places.
• Fall hard and forever in love with nothing but yourself.
• Say Please, Thank You, and Pardon Me, whenever the situation warrants it.
• Reserve “I’m sorry” for when you truly are.
• Naps are for grown-ups, too.
• Question everything, except your own intuition. • You have enough. You are enough.
• You are amazing! Don't let anyone ever make you feel you are not. If someone does....walk away. You deserve better.
• No matter where you are, you can always come home.
• Be happy and remember your roots, family is EVERYTHING.
• Say what you mean and mean what you say.
• No one will ever love you more than I do.
• Be kind; treat others how you would like them to treat you.
• If in doubt, remember whose daughter you are and straighten your crown. 👑👑👑👑👑

Each new day brings new choices and those choices determine how our whole day unfolds. And yup, it really is that simple! I woke up this morning with a pain in my neck that's been bothering me for days - it can get so bad that it makes me feel nauseous. And then I managed to smash a glass in the first 10 minutes of being awake, dozy and clumsy... but I made a choice not to let those things dictate how my day unfolds. Because today is going to be an awesome one.
.
You see more often than not, we don't even realise that we're doing it, but we humans spend far too long in that space of frustrations and self-pity. Instead of just letting it go and re-focusing our attention on the positive.
.
We create jokey mantras around Monday being the dreaded day - where all the fun stops as we head back to work. But have you ever considered that Monday could actually be the BEST day of your whole week? (btw it really is!)
.
When we make a decision that our day ahead will be awesome and we commit to that decision. It always, ALWAYS, will be. Because even if a few things happen along the way, you realise that they really do not matter in the grand scheme of awesome-day-ness.
.
Deciding on your energy state has the capability to transform your whole day. When we focus our attention on happiness, positivity, love, kindness and gratitude and we expect awesome things to happen - then this creates a vibrational shift in ourselves and will automatically open you up to and attract in more of the good stuff. .
So I'd love for you all to try this mantra out today, it's going to be an awesome Monday - I can feel it... I hope you can too?! #todaywillbeawesome #happymonday #ilovetoday #todayisthebestday #positivemindset #quoteoftheday #mantra #positivevibes #iamwellandhappy

Ok guys so this is a bit of an “out there” concept but I have found it to really work and I’ll explain the psychology behind it.
So the idea is “Your thoughts manifest your world”
That means if you think you will have good things happen to you, you probably will. If you think you are only going to have bad things happen, that is more likely.
Ok, so your mind is not actually manipulating the universe. Sorry, but chances are you are not all powerful. What this is (and it does work) is a change of behavior and perception.
If you believe good things will happen to you, you will naturally seek out good things. Your behavior will lead you to that goal. Same goes for bad things.
As for perception, if you are looking for bad, you will only see bad, but if you are looking for good, you will see more good.
I may make a video on this to explain this weird concept.
But this actually works and it can work in more specific situations, like seeking success or love or whatever.
It’s cool and it’s weird and it’s fun!

thought Id chime in with an update before I go back into work/hermit mode.
.
Not a cry for help, mind you. Im a big boy and Im just thinking outloud.
bear with me.
.
- First, Im good ,Im alright. the personal life and the motolife have been in flux since coming back after my hand injury. I think its important to be able to take a break when things get complicated. And, like life , things go in directions you dont expect. or maybe you do and dont act on it etc etc. .
I wont go into detail, but things have happened. Personal, professional.
.
Changes, both good and ... important to make are being attempted. done.
Im working to be better. .
Im motivated more than ever to do what Ive always strived for:
.
The best I can, period.
.
I havent always been that and struggle with it .
I grow from it.
Big things are coming and Im super excited to show the people...
.
-Ill not be going Austin this year for handbuilt. But Id like to be ready for next year. .
-Ill be updating this feed, and posts this um "loaded" will be seldom. .
-Last, a thought:
.
a good friend told me that "in the face of crisis, you have to decide whether youre going to be a winner or a loser in it. " .
I have to make the change, so I dont lose myself.
rebuild, restore and make better (like my always project blackthumb pictured above)
with effort, I can win the good that comes from change.
From adaptation. From looking at yourself and drawing out those things you stand to lose yourself to if you decide to lose.
I dont view failure as losing, so long as the idea that Im doing things that excite me and the people close to me. That even with any struggle one should keep their head up.And growth will happen...
.
That things are going to be alright. period. .
Things got tough for a bit. They may still be. .
but thats okay, nothing worth doing is without a challange. .
I have wonderful people in my life and the skys the limit...
.
I love every bit of it. .
I love you all, and cool things are coming. .
stay tuned. .

Our theme for today's show on The Power Within is inspired by Hebrews 11:1 - Now Faith is the confidence in what we #HOPE for and assurance about what we do not see.

People can survive without much food, water, shelter, clothing, transportation, and even affection. But without #hope—many of us would’ve been in the grave by now. #Hope is the essence of the Christian faith.

#Hope is favourable and confident expectation; it's an expectant attitude that something good is going to happen and things will work out, no matter what situation we're facing.

#Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: You don't give up. “Where there is no #hope in the future, there is no power in the present.” -John Maxwell #ThePowerWithin #Hope

It seems to me that in both tarot cards and life we sometimes fear for certain symbols, cards, images, superstitions, that will somehow immediately decide a certain unbeatable fate without our choosing. I believe that there are infinite possibilities and all of those infinite possibilities exist inside us, but it takes our belief, our energy, our minds and hard work to unlock & create them. Like I tell people with tarot the answers these cards reveal are just a depiction of what will happen if things continue on the current path they are going. Like tarot cards, I believe that in life we use all of that to learn and adjust to change what the “fates” may hold and at the least understand your own psychology, mind and best attune your energies for conscious growth. Whats funny is that “a certain fate” to me is something that sounds like destiny and the idea of “creating you’re own destiny” is something that more resembles fate to me. Destiny is said to be unchangeable. I live in the change & growth, I choose to be aware, elevate at higher frequencies, and continue to become conscious and evolve. Anything is possible. To find a certain path, to be or create a certain energy, to find magic you have to believe in it. To find yourself you must believe in yourself. The best way to find it is to love yourself, the world around you and the people in it. I’m not perfect but trying to be my best self has done nothing but made my life better. I feel more whole, complete, more capable of love and being loved. Keep creating your best life and all that love will find the way. You are infinite. 💖💕✨@thealchemistskitchen #tarot #tarotreading #tarotreadersofinstagram #destiny #fate #love #growth #happiness #youcreateyourowndestiny #loveyourself #earth #cycles #neversaynever #hereyouare #everythingwillbeokay #headstrong #youcandoit #youcandothis #bestrong #havefaith #believe #believeinyourself #iloveyou #wontstop #keepgoing #keepgoingstrong #youareinfinite #alchemistskitchen #nyc #newyorkcity

So i can either sit at home & keep crying over it or I can suck it the hell up & do what I do best.. keep f*ckin going! Things happen.. and for whatever damn reason they do I have no idea but goals don’t end it means I just gotta take a different route & work a little harder 😉 •

I will still be there tomorrow at the shamrockn half marathon ☘️ cheering on my momma & all the homies because nothing is more inspiring then witnessing others crush their goals & be bad asses crossing that finish line!! •

Shout out to all the 5/10ker’s that smashed their races today! ☘️•

Morning running update....updates only happen when things are going wrong, right? Today we finally made it out for a morning 4 miler. And missing everyday this week is because I am/was a hot mess and can't stand to be late to anywhere, I just haven't been able to figure out timing for morning running. For the last 10 years of my life I have gotten up at 4:15 and was at work by 5:30. That's not what happens any more (hence the becoming a morning runner). I have still been getting up at 4:15 out of habit, but it's still dark at that time and you can't really see the trails, so we were confined to the rail trail that is my usual dark running spot and I couldn't deal. And that is a lot of word vomit basically saying I couldn't get my 💩 together and learn to calculate time, I NEEDED to be up at 4:15 to get around on time. So what changed this morning? I set the alarm for 5 am (in reality I still woke up at the normal time and went over every time check point for 45 minutes), got up and hit our close single track/fire road for some hills. And guess what, you already know where this is going, Sam and I got our run in, I still got everywhere on time, had breakfast, watered the garden, and am still a bit anxious about it all, but it got done, and I am realizing the crazy was unnecessary. 🐾⛰️
Anyway, happy Friday and happy trails. ~

Time is to us a slave driver, a task master, a never ending reminder that our lives are short. We know that we can't control time but yet we want to. We have too many things to do...busy, busy, busy.

We know that we can't control time but yet we want to.
We have too many things to do...busy, busy, busy. If only we had more time...but we can't.
We look to God and his omnipotence to help us control time and get angry when he doesn't. God lives outside of time. God cannot be God if he is mastered over by something. God is the first, the eternal I AM. God is the master of all things and created all things. To God, time runs differently then to how we perceive it. Time is not linear. Past, present and future, another label we created, is happening all at the same time to God. There is no back, front or stop. It is constant and all the same time.
We humans created time to structure ourselves. We needed to know what is day and night so we know when to sleep, to work, to wake. We have imprisoned ourselves with time, our own creation. We complain about it yet we wear it on our wrists, it's the first thing you see on our phones. It is on everything from computers, to t.v.'s and all around us. Time is the overlord and we've allowed it to be.
The purpose of writing this testimony is because I was stuck in that complaining spirit; not out loud but to myself. I wanted things to happen on my time and prayed about it and then pretended to be O.K. with it when I really wasn't. I wanted God to swoop in and do what I wanted and do it when I wanted it to be done. But like I said before, God's time is not our time.
I finally came to a point where I was not going to fight, beg, plead for what I wanted to happen. I just accepted it. Truly and wholeheartedly allow myself to put it out there and let it come to me when it comes, but always believing that it will and be thankful that it has already been manifested.
When i finally did that, things started to fall into place, little by little something would happen, then like a rolling effect, the next thing happened, then again and continued to build momentum until what I wanted finally IRL manifested itself.
God's timing is always perfect. In reflection, if what I wanted were to manifest at the time I wanted it to, there were act

People can seem fine on the outside and have other things hanging around them that directly influence them and can also affect you. My Grandmother never just let anyone in the house as a kid....she would make people wait at the front door, she would also say don’t go to everyones house and eat everyone’s food 👀 People can come into your home as a guest and leave.... then all kinds of shenanigans are happening in your home and you don’t understand why the same thing can happen going into someone’s space who doesn’t maintain the energy of the home. 99.9% of the time I am to myself and I don’t keep company in my home. The more you work with Spirit and the Ancestors the more discerning your Spirit will be and naturally you’ll sense things about people that they are unaware of but you see and feel it. I don’t go to nightclubs, or any place where people go to get high and escape. Your Vibration is your shield! Always remember this, your job is to keep your energy high and your heart clean. There are many tools to support your vibration like crystals, mojo bags, sage, palo santo, visualization, and affirmative prayer. I sage myself and home several times a week as part of my Spiritual practice. I call on my Ancestors, Orishas and Angels and I keep my energy high and mind clear. Bless your home, your front door w things like Sage or Florida Water. Be mindful of who gets in the car with you. What I’m speaking of is as Ancient as the Pyramids and known by many mystics. As you maintain your own energetic maintenance and keep your energy strong and clear and avoid energy vampires. You’ll notice shifts in your mood, how you are manifesting even your thoughts.

The thing about having a half pint who is into things that I would not necessarily be into by choice , is that often the day becomes a journey of discovery. Today I was totally in awe of a non descript white building on Hastings seafront , rich in history and a testimony to two innovative men and architectural reincarnation . So we happened upon the Source Park. And I was totally taken with the story of a building built in the 1890's as a Victorian Turkish bath for leisure, then used as swimming baths, ice rink and cinema over the 100+years that followed. Left empty for a number of years it now houses the largest underground skatepark in Europe , I think . Just the history of the building and volume of work it took to reinvent it for halfpints generation blew me away today and gave me hope. Just that things can happen and things can change . If you ever find yourselves in this neck of the woods by the sea it's worth going in. In addition the team are super friendly, welcoming and passionate . Once again thank you @Hastings for opening our eyes and creating memories #makingmemories #hastings #thesource @sourcebmx #boysthatscoot #scootermum #whiterockbaths

So, a lot of people ask me ‘What is OCD?’ ‘So how can you have ocd but you don’t mind mess?’ ‘So are you a neat freak?’ ‘You must be depressed?’.
So here’s the low down of my OCD. Bare in mind that every single person who struggles with OCD has different obsessions and compulsions. -
-
I have ritualistic OCD. Meaning that I am not someone who has a fear of germs (that’s called contamination OCD). I have rituals that I am obsessed with and am compulsed to perform every second of everyday. -
-
I’ve suffered with this since I was 16, when I was diagnosed after a long period of unexplained depression. However I’ve suffered with general anxiety for nearly my entire life. -
-
When I was diagnosed with OCD I was confused. “You have obsessive compulsive behaviour”... “no I don’t?... I don’t have OCD? I’m not bothered about neatness and all that” was my response. So when people assume this is the only reality of ocd and they assume that it must not be that much of an issue to just be “tidy” I can’t really get mad at them, because until diagnosis, I myself had no idea what OCD was really like. -
-
I perform rituals such as water restriction. I have a very tight control over how much liquid I drink, this causes me a number of issues. Dehydration being the main one. I also have such an obsession with liquid consumption that I am obsessed with “getting rid” of the liquids I drink. You guessed it, I’m obsessed with peeing! (I used to be so embarrassed to tell people that, and I still kinda am so please be kind this is a BIG deal for me). My OCD tells me that I just simply must pee as much liquid as I consume or awful things will happen. These things are called ‘intrusive thoughts’. ‘Your family will die’ ‘You’ll die’ blah blah blah. Such things dance around my head all day unless I complete the ritual they require to fuck off. -
Cracked hands and bleeding skin, dry eyes & mouth, weight loss, headaches, dizziness, nausea, fatigue.. the list goes on. My OCD causes me all of these symptoms every single day. Not to mention the constant anxiety,bouts of depression and dissociation. In part 2 I’m going to talk about how I live with it + treatment 🌱

Thank you for all you have done & continue to do for us. Being born again into your family was the best decision I have made and even that was you. Nothing I have achieved since has been out of my strength, it is all you and I will always give you glory for how you have moved me. You have taught me that it is not about wishing for the storm to be over but it’s about learning to dance in the rain. To be thankful even when we feel like we are going through something that we can’t imagine to get better. Those are the moments I always hand it over to you. I am no better than anyone else, as I fail you all the time but the way you love me unconditionally even when I feel unlovable gives me hope. Like the true Father you are the way you love makes me strive love better, deeper, harder without judgement. Sometimes terrible things happen or things get stolen from us but those moments teach & prepare us to be more grateful for those moments of true bliss. Thank you for choosing me in my mothers whom, that longing & that hole I felt my whole life that has been filled with your grace and that’s what keeps me going, it’s all you! I finally feel like I am home. #Easter #resurrection #John11:25-26 #iloveyouJesus #home #bornagain

I saw my healer today and we had a long talk about going for what you really want without settling while waiting. I told him that in the past I’ve had many times where I’ve settled with what was in front of me, even if I was clear about what I wanted. He told me that when you expect the best, you get the best. I can’t agree more. I’ve been practicing this muscle and see that when you take a stand and declare exactly what you want without sending mixed signals by settling for anything less, the universe will comply eventually. Patience is key, but when you exercise that control, boom, amazing things happen! ❤️✨ Things don’t always happen when we want, but when you believe you deserve the best and expect nothing but the best it’s easier to say no to something that’s ‘good enough.’ Forget that! Why shortchange yourself, right!? So, where in your life have you been settling? Are you ready to put a stop to that by making a firm commitment to follow nothing but your heart’s truest desires? I did, and although it’s challenging AF sometimes I already see it paying off big time. Who’s with me? ⚡️

something you have never done.
If you don’t make things happen then things will happen to you.
If you want your life to work you can only visualize, meditate and congregate for so long, eventually you’ll have to play the game of life by participating in it

I was so tired of waking up and reminding myself of how sad I was, how my postpartum anxiety was too much for me to bear, how heavy my grief felt, how I had lost direction + focus + motivation. I was SO fed up with my story, I can’t even tell you. .
So much had crumbled. But maybe it needed to crumble, to unearth what was always meant to be. Something better.
.
I talk to women everyday who allow themselves to believe that they are incapable or unworthy of changing their own path. And that was me for a long time too. But one day the story finally started changing because I was tired enough of the old one. And I was ready to say YES to something new.
.
When I became a coach 5.5 years ago, I had ZERO idea what I was doing. I had never “coached” anyone before (other than a few little ones through potty training 😂), and certainly was not a fitness pro, or even at my goal weight/shape! But what I did have was an interest in fitness, and a passion for learning. I was already on social media, I was already sharing my post-baby journey, so why not plug those all into earning an income from home, while my littles napped 😍
.
I can hardly wrap my head around what’s happened since. If you just met me, you get a WHOLE different picture than how it was a few years ago. The house we built and live in is ALL because of this coaching job of mine, we can take our family on trips (without having to use, or max out credit cards), our kids can commit to sports and activities, and most of all... I have the freedom of TIME. To be wherever I want to be, work from wherever, unplug to care for sick babies, make my own schedule, ALL of it. .
Things happen. Terrible things, wonderful things. It’s not that anyone is immune to the bad, but it’s how they choose to redirect once faced with the unimaginable. Our story wasn’t going how I thought it was going to go, but thankfully someone showed me there was a way to rewrite it 💕

Things are shifting for you. So many changes are happening in your life because you’re entering a new season where everything will start to go your way. It’s time. You had enough lessons. You did the work. You overcame so much. You believed even when it was hard to. You never gave up. You pushed through it all. Now it’s your turn to receive in a major way.

Don’t count yourself out. Some of the things that are going to unfold in your life are still in the seed stay stage getting ready to flourish. All your inner work, efforts, action, visualizations, transformations and dedication to growth is about to pay off. You have the choice to accept greatness into your life. You have the power to change your life and to recreate yourself. Always be optimistic, hopeful, and positive that things are going to work out for you. No matter what's happening, you can decide right now with a shift of your mindset and a change of attitude that blessings will enter your life. There’s great hope for you. Just believe and let what goes go and what comes come.
Don't ask for change then try to avoid the process. It’s okay to be uncomfortable when you’re stepping it up. The universe is getting ready to bless you and bring you great opportunities. Don't resist the process even when it doesn’t make sense. Don’t be afraid to let go, flow, and allow. Take the lessons. Do the actions that are necessary and watch what shows up. Pay attention to the signs. You’re being guided to where you belong. Everything will make sense. You'll look back and be glad that you set the intention that something great is going to happen for you.

While doing focused intent on the Heart Chakra, I came to a couple of realizations that I’m peaceful with.
.
First, I know no real change can happen without intent, focus, and energy. Lots of folks just let life just “happen” to them, letting situations come and go. That is no way no live. Letting go and just letting things “happen” are 2 very different things.
.
Second, I’m ok with not having an open loving heart to absolutely everyone. Some hu.mins are absolutely heinous, it’s as simple as that. The key is not to focus on it, and to be zen and the same in spirit no matter who crosses your path (excluding those who try to physically harm you and yours).
.
Gathering and cultivating a tribe of those who you feel good around and bring out the best in you is what makes life sweet. The best I can do is to be zen around those who make me feel otherwise.
.
Which brings me to these pictures. If you would have told me even 5 years ago that my life would be rocks and the Pacific Northwest I would have laughed and laughed and laughed.
.
Rockhounds are now truly my favorite people. Low key, friendly, warm, smart, unpretentious, with lots of stories that always interest me. These are pictures from one of my favorite Rockhound’s workshop; he is almost 90 years old.
.
His humble equipment and the beautiful work he creates inspires me so. Inspires me to share his work and legacy, inspires me to keep going with my business. Inspires me to take the awesome beauty of PNW minerals and create the Lapidary work he does. Inspires me to keep going in life, knowing there are good people that want nothing from you but to appreciate their work.
.
All Rockhounds do that for me (those that actually dig and polish), and I’m so happy that I’m able to do work that finally fulfills me on a soul level. That activates my Heart Chakra.
.
I’ll post more of his beauties in a post later today; I have some seriously gorgeous pieces of his work.

Farewell 2018 and thank you so much! Surely this has been one of the years which I had experienced greater personal growth.
.
I felt like I hit the bottom rock when I had the accident and at that point I realised that I had two choices. Either making the effort to overcome this situation the best I could, or play the victim role which was not going to take me anywhere. Sometimes we learn things the hard way.
.
I went from being injured to writing not just one, but two books. I changed a lot my perspective about live and the power we have to make things happen. Focusing on what we can do instead of focusing on the things we can’t control. .
I hope you feel proud of your year and if this is not the case, it's never too late! Check out what you did not like and make a plan to change it in 2019. You can do it, indeed, only you can make anything happen!
Happy new year from Enzo and myself!!!

¡Gracias 2018! Vivo en absoluta gratitud y profunda felicidad. Seguramente este ha sido uno de los años en los que he experimentado mayor crecimiento personal.
.
Este 2018 me ha enseñado muchas cosas y es que parece cierto eso de que a veces tienes que tocar fondo para volver a reflotar con más energías.
De estar lesionada, con malestar general, sin poder entrenar y bastante desanimada, a escribir 2 libros y aprender una lección de vida muy importante.
.
Todos vamos a tener que vernos ante situaciones que no habríamos escogido porque no nos favorecen, pero a la vez, todos tenemos el poder de decisión ya sea esforzarnos y sacar lo mejor de nosotros, o jugar el papel de víctima que no nos lleva a ningún sitio. Al fin y al cabo tus acciones son las que determinan el resultado y está claro que del victimismo poco tenemos que ganar.

Espero que os sintáis orgullosos de vuestro 2018 y si no es así, nunca es tarde, revisa qué es lo que no te ha gustado y marca un plan para cambiarlo este 2019. ¡Sólo tú puedes hacerlo por ti!

¡Feliz año nuevo de parte de Enzo y mía!

Don’t let the process between the time you declare what you want to manifest and the time it takes for it to come into your reality make you panic or worry if it’s actually going to happen. You must trust, believe, and have unwavering faith that everything is going to work out.

Don’t lose faith if you don’t get sudden results when you pray or visualize for something to happen for you. Everything is in the works. Most of creation takes place in an energy state first before it manifests into the physical. Soon you’ll reap the rewards of all your work.

You WILL manifest exactly what you want. You just have to believe and be patient as things are unfolding. Understand that patience means trust. It means you believe you'll receive the seed you've sowed. Don't let worry, fear, and anxiety make you dig up what you've planted just to see if its growing. Everything has a perfect timing. It’s all happening for you even when it feels like it’s happening to you. This is why we have to learn to respect and honor the process. When it comes to our goals and our dreams, we expect things to happen, like, yesterday. And when they don’t show up in the timeline that we want or the way that we expect, our doubts and limiting beliefs come into play. Our negative mind chatter creeps up and starts blurring our vision.
You have to start believing that life is perfect, and timing is life's best friend. Trust the process, and have faith in the unseen. The minute you decide on a goal or have a strong vision in what it is you want to accomplish, the energy starts moving through you, and begins the work. Everything is in fruition! Your vision will be realized. Just believe!

I BELIEVE THAT MY LIFE WILL DRASTICALLY CHANGE IN A POSITIVE WAY!

Everything will happen for you all of a sudden. All the disappointments, the challenges, the struggles, the ups and the downs will all finally make sense. You will be thankful that you didn’t give up.

Keep telling yourself that things are going to work out even when you don’t know how. The positive attitude and optimism will start to change everything that’s happening in your life. Keep having hope and believing that things will get better. Stop overthinking, worrying, and stressing yourself out. Everything will be okay. It might seem like it at the moment when you’re in the midst of everything, but when you let go and feel that sense of inner ease great things will begin to happen for you. Ease is a state of trust and a powerful way of allowing. Your faith has to be strong in believing that you can manifest and receive what you want. All your requests and deep desires has been received by the universe. You efforts, your visualizations, and your prayers have been heard. You sent the signal out, now you just have to trust and be patient as your blessings begin to flow into your life. Don't think about how it will happen, that's not for you to worry about. Put it out there and let it happen. The universe picks up vibrations and those in gratitude, joy, and love for what they want to receive get them. The grateful get showered in blessings. Instead of overthinking, align your faith with divine timing and trust that everything that belongs in your life is making its way towards you right now. Don't block what's coming by thinking negatively. What you want has been on the way, but your worry, doubt, and lack of trust has been slowing down the process. Start releasing and start receiving. You got this.

It may not be, and most likely won’t be, the same plan that you have- but TRUST in him. This has always been difficult for me because I am a planner to the full extent of the word! But then things changed.... when we began down the #infertility path, I felt in my heart the entire time that it WAS going to happen. After all the failed IUI’s, I still knew it WAS going to happen. God gave me so many signs along the way and for once my ears and eyes were open to accept them. Me and God talked all day every day and I just felt it in my soul. Like I said, there were several signs along the way but the biggest is how we solidified Sammy’s name. We were already working with our amazing reproductive specialist (Dr. Andrew Harper) when me and my dad took a trip down to Dothan, Alabama to take my grandmother to church for Mother’s Day. On our trip I told Dad that me and my husband had been talking about names. Keep in mind that I’m a planner and when it takes you 3 1/2 years to get prego, you do everything else you have control over. So I told him we always liked girl names that could have Tom boyish nicknames and we really like Samantha and call her Sammy. My dad told me just to slow down, there was plenty of time to pick names once I’m pregnant. I think he was worried about me getting my hopes up. I wasn’t, I just knew it was going to happen. So we get to church and sit down.... as if I wasn’t sure enough before, this was my 💯 eye opening moment. God I’m listening! The service that day was on Hannah in the Bible, who was infertile and prayed to God for a child. A child that she would give back to him if he just blessed her with one. She named the child Sam. At that moment, in the middle of church, me and my father both cried our eyes out. And when we walked out of church, he looked at me and said “Danielle, God is going to give you a baby. I 100% believe that now. That was him giving us a sign and I think, whether it’s a boy or girl, you should name it Sam.” I couldn’t have agreed more. And I’ve prayed to God since thanking him for giving me my Sam and promising to teach her all about his word and......

Thank you for all the birthday wishes yesterday! My beautiful Mama came to take care of me after surgery and take me out for my 25th birthday!
Year 24 was a roller coaster ride and I learned a lot of important life lessons that are sometimes very easy to forget. And now I'm going to remind you (and myself): 1. The way people treat you (or others) is a statement about who they are as a human being.

2. There are three solutions to every problem: accept it, change it, or leave it.
3. Bad things that happen to you are just that. They aren't YOU, they are just things that HAPPEN to you. Remember that who you are and the things that happen to you aren't one and the same.
Sorry for the sentimental sap! Thanks to everyone that has made my birthday special in some way ❤️ #preach #tooreal #sorrynotsorry #birthday #25 #growingup #mantra #wordsofwisdom #birthdaygirl #lucky #blessed

Lately things have been different due to the ACL tear. I’ve had to adjust some things in my life in order to get the job done.
-
I’m not going to lie, sometimes I ask myself why this has happened to me and what will happen in the future.
-
But then I think about all of you and how I tell you all to never look at negative things as a bad things and to always find the positive in it instead.
-
I know some of you are probably going through tougher times than me and you feel as the world is against you, I get it.
-
But we have to keep pushing, anything that comes in our way we have to adapt and overcome it.
-
If you really want it you will find a way to make it happen.
-
Take my post cardio for instance, most people would stop doing post cardio because their knee, but instead I made sure I found a gym that had a machine to still get the job done.
-
You always need to find a way and you always need to keep a positive mind.
-
I’m human just like you, the shit isn’t easy, but we can’t stop.
-
The Drive always continues and never looks back. So let’s stay focused and encourage each other instead of trying to one up each other or even put down each other.

We are all in this together.✊🏻

Redefining my purpose and finding things to love again was difficult. I stopped doing all the things I use too and found new passions. Though I hated that uncertainty of what could happen if I once again dived into something and immersed myself in it. But this year showed me that the potential loss of something is less painful than living in the emptiness of mediocrity. Life is uncertainty, you can do everything right that doesn’t promise a thing. But doing nothing definitely will not change a thing. And it just feels better knowing you gave it all you have. A year can change your life if you are present, or keep you stuck if you let it. I’m not going to say what 2019 will bring for me. Im not going to say I’m going to kill it. I’m still on a path with an unknown destination but I will say an effort will be made daily to be better. And there will be no more fear of what could go wrong because of past experience. Something probably will, but I have always recovered. I’ll be alright when it does. I accept the that there is no escaping failure, pain, or rejection no matter what you do and there is definitely no satisfaction in playing it safe. This year if I die I die. Let’s work. Happy New Years friends. I hope you all set goals and hulk smash them. And be nice to the new gym goers okay.

On the wedding day i saw it in your eyes, you were happy to be in your favourite dress beautifully matched with Bonda, you were excited with your hair and all and yet you were confused and i guess you had a little bit of fear. Fear of losing Bonda. Or maybe you were confused of what was going to happen to you, since you were always with me for more than nearly two years. I am sorry that you had to go through that feeling, but i have faith that this will grow you, this will make you understand things better. I want you to know, everything is happening for good things, for good reasons. You are not gonna lose anyone of us, but yet Allah is adding more love to you, more abundance to you and our lives.

Change is the only constant in life. We are always growing, and along with our world, we are continually transforming. However, these periods of transition from one phase to another, aren’t always easy. We can often feel lost, confused and even detached from the world. Sometimes, it’s incredibly uncomfortable.
.
These shifts can happen in any area of our life: jobs, relationships, businesses, home, environment, beliefs, etc. Even the most established entrepreneurs can face shifts in their business after many years of dominating their industry. The world is dynamic, and so are we.
.
You don’t always need to have it all figured out. So, don't be too hard on yourself if you feel like you’ve lost your bearings. Don’t be afraid to be alone for a while to figure things out; introspection can provide clarity – think it through but don’t overthink it. The truth is, these periods are natural, and they tend to lead to something great. It’s almost like your life is about to be upgraded. Have faith in the idea that good things are coming. If you can set your vibration around this idea, by exuding excitement out into the Universe, these good things will happen to you even faster.
.
It’s happened to me quite often, over the last few years. I have changed so much. I like to remind myself during these periods of transition that although things may not make sense right now, something amazing is about to happen… And it does. Call it whatever you will, but it works for me – every single time!
.
Old energy leaves and new energy enters. The change can be devastating, the lessons can be cruel, but the outcome will always bless you in beautiful ways. The process of change can leave you in the dark for a moment, but don’t resist it if you want to enter the new passage of light.
.
Embrace everything you’re going through and go easy on yourself while you do. You’ll arrive at where you need to be. So, try and make the most of your journey and be patient. Whatever you do, don’t go back to old habits and situations that are more comfortable – nothing new and exceptional will happen if you stay attached to the old.

How many times in life have you tortured yourself with indecision?

How many times in life do you make a decision and back out when the path gets a bit too rocky for you?

HAPPENS ALL THE TIME!

This is why goal setting is an art!  You can't just say I want to lose 20 lbs and have a six pack.  Hate to tell you, that is not going to give you want you are really looking for.  It won't satisfy you!  Because that isn't really your BIG MOFA (big motivating factor). It is an outcome of what will happen when you set realistic and solid goals.
_________________________________
If you don't hold feeling towards your goal, if you can't see it, smell it and picture it, it won't happen.  You can see yourself with a six pack but in the long run what is that going to do for you?  How is that going to change your life?

If you don't know you better find out, or you won't get it or when you do get it, it won't feel amazing when you do!
___________________________________
Your first step in making a decision is to own it! What I mean is, when things get uncomfortable you don't abaondon ship!  Things will always get uncomfortable in a goal.  Know that now!  Things will always try to steer you away from it!

I say that set-backs and obstacles is the universes way of testing you!  To see how bad you want it!  It is the universes way of making you stronger!  So when you reach that goal you feel like a F'N WINNER!

It is scarey but that fear is meant to motivate not deter!  Ask yourself how you can use that fear to succeed!  Reframe your thoughts around it!

Dear Self,
So you've got Celiac disease. There are so many strange things (good and bad) going on in your body right now it's sometimes hard to keep your head from spinning. Doctors warned you certain things would happen: an increased sensitivity to gluten ("You'll know when you get contaminated," they said. Boy were they right!), food sensitivities would pop up (yep, but you're working diligently on getting rid of those - good work!), other auto-immune diseases might creep up (again, yep, but big deal), and weight gain. Ugh, weight gain. It makes you laugh when Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow, and the like talk about how much weight they lost going on a gluten-free diet. Makes you want to slap them with a baguette, doesn't it? I know you didn't think it would happen because you've been eating extra healthily, not over-noshing on gluten-free packaged goods, so those extra pounds you seemed to have packed on overnight were naturally quite a shock. They said it would happen. It happens to nearly all newbie Celiacs, so why did you think it wouldn't happen to you? Because you eat well and go to the gym five times a week? Think how much chunkier you'd be if you didn'tdo that?!Consider this, your body has struggled for so long - years, maybe your entire life even - to absorb the proper amount of nutrients and now that it's getting them it's cashing in a long overdue paycheck and hitting the all-you-can-eat buffet in a frantic Filene's Basement-style frenzy, grabbing on to anything and everything it can, whether it needs it or not. Can you blame it? Poor thing's been so deprived for so long. Rest assured, the pendulum will eventually find its center. In the meantime, your self-esteem has taken a one-two punch for sure, and right before swimsuit season! Grr, how unfair. But here's the thing: you are healing! - as your latest blood panel revealed (Champagne popping, fireworks!)

Did some house cleaning in my office the other day and finally put this up.
It's a plaque for Tyga's hit (Taste) going Double Platimum.
And as I put it up I just thought about the bigger picture of things.
This isn't just a plaque. It's a first. Not only my first, but the first one we have put up on our wall in the @1025ksfm office as we progress in our new direction, and much more to come.
WHICH GIVES NOTE AND CAUSE TO BE THANKFUL FOR MUCH: -I am thankful for the blessing of having a wall to put a plaque on with KSFM in a sound cluster and market with Entercom Sacramento. -I am thankful for having a relationship with labels and reps that allow us to play these hits that warrant a plaque. Takes hard work from a bunch of people that are connected with the industry to make things happen. -And that brings me to the fact that I am thankful for having a family of talented people to work alongside with at such a strong station in KSFM. @bigmicradio
@miaamor143 @hellasoosh @itsmebiancav @djoasis @djelements . Looking to make things happen.
I count my blessings for all that we have and more so the opportunity to grow and do more. And with that once again, Happy Thanksgiving.
Especially to all my radio famz and friends. We are blessed.

Update on my last post: remember when I said something really great & unexpected was going to happen soon? I didn’t really have any idea what that great thing was but I was expecting ‘something’. Wouldn’t you know that before the end of the day, I was confirming something totally unexpected and amazing! ————————————
There truly is something to what we allow ourselves to think and the attitudes we project outwards. I get the challenge. Life is harsh sometimes and we’ve ALL been disappointed. Maybe we’ve even stopped expecting good things in order to protect our heart from disappointment ... But what if? What if mayyyyybe, Maybe if we allow ourselves to walk around expecting wonderful, crazy, fabulous things to happen; They actually start happening. And maybe we end up with these crazy, fabulous, glorious lives? I’m totally okay with that. What if for the month of September we agree to expect big, wonderful, unexpectedly, amazing things for our days? Are you in? —————————————
Wake up every morning and say to yourself “I believe something wonderful is going to happen to me today.” Friends, I can’t wait to hear all the wonderful things that ARE going to happen for you this week, this month, and beyond!
Please promise to come back and tell me what happens okay? I really do want to celebrate every single good thing!!! #affirmations #believeinyourself #morningaffirmation #liveanamazinglife #dreambig #September

BUT WORTH THE READ ☺️ After watching my friend Sheri for the passed couple months and having amazing results with her weight loss journey and the experience I had being pregnant and my delivery, Danny and I have decided to start a new journey!
I had an absolute horrible pregnancy, I hated it. If I wasn’t in some sort of pain I was sleeping. I had a very traumatizing delivery I became really sick, I had preeclampsia and was anemic. The dr told me I was going to die. So me being me i was scared to bond with Peyton, I couldn’t bond with a baby that wasn’t going to have a mother. I didn’t hold her for a couple days. The day I finally did they told me I needed a blood transfusion. Mind you she was born in Las Vegas in a 2.5 star hospital! Ummmm that was not about to happen. By that point we were in the hospital 4 days going on 5. I told them no I needed to go home I will go to my hospital. So we were finally released. I was in and out of the hospital for what seemed like a couple weeks. But things have finally started to calm down! I have a couple more weeks before my body should be fully recovered and back to normal and I shouldn’t have to worry about getting preeclampsia! After this traumatizing experience I’m very upset with myself and the way I let myself go, we are very blessed to both be here right now. I want 3 more babies and there’s no way that will happen unless I get healthy and lose all my weight, because if it did there’s a high chance we won’t make it this time. I’m completely in love with Peyton and am sooooo greatful that this opportunity came about when it did!

Our system hasn’t arrived yet but we would love to have some friends and family be our accountability partners and get the healthiest we’ve ever been together. Who’s up for looking and feeling their best?? I have a private coaching page I can add you to and you can check out what and why we are so passionate about this new lifestyle. Oh and BTW, it’s NOOOOOT a diet!! YIIIIPPPPEEEE

The 3 most common, negative human emotions. 👉🏻 How we can navigate them knowing they are bound to arise with the ebbs and flows of life.
💮Fear.
Think of the worse thing that could happen if your fear comes true. - Could you survive? What might happen?
Could it actually be beneficial for you?
What could you learn if this were to happen?
How might this allow you to grow and depend as a person?
..
When we turn and embrace what we fear, it loses its power to frighten us. We no longer need to fight it - instead we can work with it.
💮Anger.
Anger usually involves some disappointment or frustrated expectation.
Ask yourself “what was my expectation? Can I release it and accept what is or how others are rather than how I think they should be?”
..
If you are angry about what has been said, can you see that these things are just words that no longer exist, that, like all things, they are impermanent? Contemplate how anger can destroy relationships, alienate others and rob you of your peace of mind.
💮Sadness.
Even though it may last longer than other emotions, it too, will pass.
All life, the sadness and sorrow included, is impermanent and will end.
... There are always going to be highs and lows in any life, in any year, in any day. So much of our mood comes from what we focus on we can choose to focus on what is going well for us and for the people in our life.
...
By putting our attention of things we are grateful for we can shift how much time we spend in sadness and how quickly we return the joy.

When are you going to w a k e u p in the morning and start chasing your dreams? When are you going to stop worrying about what others think about you?
.
Truth is, you’re going through the motions every single day, and that’s it. 🤷🏻‍♀️ That’s not l i v i n g at all. You’re letting fear take over for what’s truly on your heart... you’re letting that fear hold you back. STOP. You’re going to bed dreaming of things being different... and then you wake up and live the same every day life that you’ve always had. Going to the job you don’t want to be at, not taking any chances. Your life will never c h a n g e unless you make a step to change it 🤷🏻‍♀️.
.
Those dreams you go to bed thinking about? They CAN happen. But you have to wake up and m a k e them happen! 🙌🏼.
.
I love that this business has been an avenue for me to c•h•a•s•e my dreams and a way to show my children to chase theirs! I will never stop chasing the things God has placed on my heart, the power is in my hands!!! 🙏🏼 So what about you? What are you going to do?

I'm not an emotional person. I barely show emotion if it's negative and I occasionally show emotion if I'm honestly having a good time. Sometimes I wonder if that's a bad thing, and other times I wonder the opposite. The bottom line is, I'm not an emotional person.

My dog is turning fourteen this year (yeah, she's almost 98 this year). I'm not ashamed to say I don't have a lot of friends, or a lot of hobbies, really, so I basically sit in my room when I get home. I'll play guitar, watch movies, do anything to keep my mind occupied. My dogs sleep in my room constantly, so they're here when I'm home from school. They've been in my room so much that I hardly notice them now. At times I'll find myself involuntarily petting them, not even noticing there's a dog next to me.

I'm going to admit I honestly feel sorry for myself because of certain and current events that have happened and still happen.

I'm so distracted by getting sucked into this feeling of self-hatred that I take things for granted. It's selfish of me. Anyway, my dog is getting really old. She's getting weaker, I can hear it in every breath she takes and see it in every step. She doesn't have much time left. And I could've spent a lot more time with her (when she still had time), but instead, I'm nothing but selfish and wasted all that time feeling sorry for myself. And yes, I know she's "just a dog." But if it were a person I'd have made the same mistakes.

My point is, don't feel sorry for yourself and do NOT take things for granted. Life keeps going. Instead of thinking about how much you hate waking up every morning and having to spend your time experiencing the "worst day" every day, try distracting yourself with things you like. Try new things. And don't bottle useless anger or sadness or whatever your head wants to feel, because it piles up. Honestly. Write your thoughts down, get them off of your mind. Life goes by fast. Don't spend it missing out on opportunities to enjoy it because you've ended up feeling sorry for yourself.

Thanks." -This was posted from the Instagram account, bailey_the_crip

How I spent my summer: moving, finding a house, doing work on a house, finally (!!) getting to live in a house. Trying to keep things totally normal ("nothing to see here!") for my kiddos. Trying to stay committed to my business and my work.
.
ALSO: I've created more things this summer than I maybe ever have in a 3-month period. During this life-upside-down transition.
.
My 240-page workbook for my upcoming Inner Circle (deets in bio link!) just got sent to the printer. These archetypes feature heavily and also: THE TIMING FOR THIS PROJECT WAS HORRIBLE BUT I DID IT ANYWAY.
.
And here's what I want you to know: the timing for what you want to make happen might always be horrible. It may never be exactly right. You might also have some creative tendencies that hold you back from making your big moves. (Do any of the above relate?)
.
BUT ALSO: you can move forward despite all of this. Baby steps become progress. One day at a time becomes 609 days of sobriety. Little chunks of writing become a 240-page workbook. Crossing the finish line becomes stepping over the starting line into something else.
.
And through it all, we figure things out and keep going. Your day job and your kids and your busy life don't have to be a death sentence for those Big Burning Ideas of yours. It is possible to make things happen despite (and throughout) all of it. I am proof that it's possible.
.
(Also, if you're looking to say yes to a new way of showing up, check out my year-long Inner Circle - applications are open and OMG I AM SO EXCITED TO GET STARTED WITH THIS AMAZING GROUP OF WOMEN.)
.
Ahem - also, you can do hard things. You have done hard things. You will continue to do hard things. Keep going.

I think we need to take a minute to dispel some rumors about what exactly happens on a day away of planning for the year ahead.

I think we need to take a minute to dispel some rumors about what exactly happens on a day away of planning for the year ahead.
It’s all too easy to assume that the result is a glistening month-by-month detailed plan for how we are going to double or triple revenue in the following year all while keeping family life, health and friendships thriving. 🙄

That might happen sometimes, but more realistically and depending on what season of business you are in, a day away to plan may look more like spending 12 long hours taking a look at business finances that have been neglected. It might mean doing an honest assessment of what worked and didn’t work and prayerfully trying to figure out how to fix issues. It might mean long hours of problem-solving, re-organizing, number crunching and staring blankly at the wall trying to sort things out. 😂

You may come away energized with a plan for the next few months or year, or you might come away exhausted but with a few clarified thoughts about what you don’t want to happen again. You may come away knowing exactly what you need to do next or you might come away knowing that so much is changing that you’re just going to have to be open-handed and ready for whatever the year holds. 🙋🏻‍♀️ Bottom line - we’re all in the same boat - owning a business is messy and challenging and full of ups and downs and no one has the perfect plan or any real control over the future. Every year will look different and thats OK! Be encouraged! Time away to think intentionally about the work you are doing is a WIN regardless of how it feels or whether not you come away with pretty action steps. 🙌🏼💕🙌🏼 If you are looking for a place to start with intentionality in business (or life!) I do recommend the @cultivatewhatmatters Powersheets and the @lindsay_letters Creatives Calendar as tools just know that sometimes it’s going to be messy and you are only going to be able to focus on just doing what’s next and that is OK my friend!

But I guess I'm not that sad about it because I'm even more excited now for the things that will happen to the cast. This Cast was really something important for me. They showed me so many things over all these years and I couldn't thank them enough for the things that they did for me. They're all truly angels and I'm still so so so grateful to had the opportunity to have met them. Soy Luna really made my life easier over the last 3 years with this show. The Cast are huges inspirations for all of us and I'm so endless proud of everyone who were a part of this amazing thing. Soy Luna was really that show that showed me to never stop believing in my dreams. Soy Luna taught me to always be kind to people even tho they're not to you because you don't know what's going on in their life's. Soy Luna made me laugh, made me cry, made me angry,made me proud. Every Soy Luna character was an inspiration for me ( yes even Matteo aka my most hated character HAHAHA). Oh damn I'm nearly crying while writing this ok uff.. Soy Luna was one of the best experiences in my life and it's hard to let it go..It's hard to let go the people I look up to..It's hard to let the characters go that made me realise so many things in my life..It's hard to let go Soy Luna. I could say this a million times but I'm really so proud of everyone. They reached so many things in the past 3 years and it's really insane. Like sometimes it's really unbelievable. I know that it will be also hard for the cast to let go Soy Luna after so many years and I'm probably going to cry this night when I'm going to see more of those goodbye posts from them. One thing for sure: this isn't a goodbye but a see you soon. We don't know what will happen in the upcoming months or years but soy Luna will always be in our hearts..without soy luna I wouldn't have met so many beautiful people and I will be forever grateful for that..gracias a soy luna y a todo el elenco por estos 3 años..fueron inolvidable y no es un adiós pero un hasta pronto💜 #soyluna #soylunaporsiempre

I was using the rowing machine and a well-intentioned woman next to me kept offering me tips and corrections. I politely told her, when she was showing me "the right" way to do the exercise, that my thighs and midsection dont allow for that range of motion so I adjust. She didnt seem to grasp this; all I really wanted to do was listen to my Cher and be left alone to my thoughts, so eventually, after going back and forth quite a bit, I just thanked her and kept going.

There were a whole bunch of assumptions I could have made about WHO she thought I was. Believe me, my mind went there for a minute. Maybe she thought I was a " body-loathing fat woman making diet-related New Years resolutions she will never keep?" And after that awful thought came a flood of self criticism on my part. Some anger. Some resentment at the "character building" of starting WHERE we are.

And so I cut that line of thinking super fast. She doesnt know me. At all!

Maybe she was a nice woman who just wanted to be kind? She probably doesn't know what it's like to be really heavy. Maybe it doesnt reallt matter WHAT she thinks because it's what I THINK that really matters. And maybe her ignorance is not a punishment for me but a chance for me to learn something. A chance for me to remind myself that NOBODY has the power to make you feel a certain way about your body unless you give them that attention and energy.

Reminder for me. Reminder for you.

Things dont happen TO us because we are bad and life is messing with us. Things happen FOR us to learn from. Each moment can be something teachable, even if it stinks at that very second.

If you are walking into the gym for the first time soon... keep that in mind. YOU are what matters. YOU are who you need to please. Nobody else.

Ps. A very nice guy helped me unrack some weights from the leg press machine. He smiled, looked me in the eye and called me ma'am and was a nice human being. Remember that too. Some people are assholes. Some people are not. Some people are not assholes but just have a shitty way of talking to people. And some people are really just nice people.🧡

...I think it was Joyce Meyer who said that. It’s a quote that’s stuck with me over this past year. It’s easy for me to get caught up thinking about all the things I wish I could do, that I feel like I’m MEANT to do, but that just aren’t open doors right now. Don’t get me wrong, I feel hopeful, but I also feel limited. But I’m reminded that when I’ve trusted God in the past, in seasons with even more limitation, ESPECIALLY in doing the things I didn’t think really mattered all that much, I look back and see those small things now as necessary connectors and steps toward some of the biggest & most meaningful parts of my life. And it’s easy to overlook the good in all directions when you’re so focused on a specific want. But I don’t want to take any of the blessings coming to me in this season for granted. I’m hoping-nope-I’m EXPECTING that something good is going to happen every day, and some of those good things might just end up propelling me toward my destiny. I hope & pray for GOOD in all of your lives today and every day of this entire year ahead! Let’s expect it. Because there is good to be found all along the path of pursuing your purpose. Especially if we look to the One who designed it to guide us. We can do this 2019! ❤️ you guys! ⠀

P.s. Talk about good things! If you haven’t seen my latest Neverland videos on @youtube, I would love if you checked them out!🎵Probably some of the coolest projects I’ve ever gotten to do but they often fly under the radar in the beginning-don’t miss the most magical adventure & an interview with the real life Tinker Bell & Redheaded Mermaid from Disney’s Peter Pan, Margaret Kerry!

We wait for friendship, we wait for love we wait for the ‘perfect job’ and we spend most of our life waiting. while we wait we dwell and rethink over all the bad things we’ve done. We create waves and waves of negative energy. We spread it out into the world and slowly we all believe it’s normal. We believe it’s normal to hope for good things to happen, we believe it’s normal to not put any effort and we believe things are just going to happen. This waiting game has always been a way to oppress people, with its roots starting from the Bible, we’ve become accustomed, needy and obsess with the ‘wait’. - in the mid while the world strives for expression, it urges for creativity, it demands passion. The world is screaming to be noticed. It tries to send out energy but humans have forgotten how to connect with nature, we’ve put ourself on a pedestal. But we are losing, we are missing out on the stream of energy that this world is creating. (I bet so many people reading this barely even knows what energy I mean). - I hope to be able to remind you- to remind you how to feel alive ☀️ #howtofeelalive #feelalive #rememberhowtofeel #feeling #sharingenergy #letyourselffeel #energyhealer #empoweringlove4all #bebrave #beconscious #begrateful #smile #beach #islandgirl #mylifeinseychelles #livinginseychelles #anselazio #praslin #monsesel #myseychelles #italian #seychellois #seychelles #home

He told me that he usually dates “really skinny brunettes,” & that he “knew he could find someone better.” Brutal, right?
My self-esteem was completely shattered. Understatement.

BUT MOST OF ALL, I had never been more *spiritually confused in my entire life. I thought I was following the Spirit, so how could it not work out?! I all of a sudden doubted my relationship w/ the Holy Ghost—have I been doing it wrong the whole time?! I was mad, thinking that my faith & my God were failing me.

It took me a long while to realize something important:
The engagement WAS supposed to happen - the marriage was not.
It was supposed to happen & "not work out" the whole time-- b/c the lessons & knowledge & skills I learned from all of it happening that way have been SO crucially vital to learn--
I couldn't imagine going any further into the future w/o. & other than all that- LOOK AT ALL I HAVE B/C IT DIDN'T "WORK OUT!"
I put that in "quotes" b/c obviously it DID all work out *exactly how it needed to.
Learning what I did & -OF COURSE- having BEN & our kids! 'cuz WOW what would life be like without them?!
I AM SO GRATEFUL IT DIDN'T "WORK OUT." But God knew that the entire time, huh.

We may be in a hard season right now - but seasons don't last forever.
Let's not stay in the wonder & the doubt & ENJOY today! Search for the lessons & find JOY in your trials,
b/c surely, there will be many.
Just b/c things haven’t worked out yet, it doesn’t mean they won’t at all.
Every bit of pain, confusion, & loneliness will *never be wasted.
ALL trials & course changes will lead us to better things & bigger blessings every.single.time.
Never lose confidence. His promises are SO real. There are far, far better things ahead--
I promise.
& God promises.
That’s what I love about Him; we will never be shortchanged-- Your prayers *have been heard. But greater things in store for you.
Accept the unexpected but profoundly greater path --
Never let a change of course take away from the unchangeable truth that God IS taking care of you.
You may not have gone where you had in mind, but you will end up w/ BETTER blessings.
