We truly are so small in the grand scheme of things.
I mean, Mother Nature took her sweet, sweet time shaping & reshaping all of the marvelous lands that we get to call home.
And if seeing some of these amazing places firsthand didn’t already remind me of that, J did...because once reality hit on the drive home, he told me how it doesn’t matter. It shouldn’t matter.
Who cares if we are too tired, or have no money, or have other problems back at home that just can’t or won’t be solved overnight. Because at the end of the day we got out of our hamster wheel and we LIVED.
And we LOVED.
Things, especially true beauty, take time to build and if they crumble, the walls don’t always just pick themselves back up and start where they left off.
Mother Nature would probably be the first to tell you that.
Creating new paths & ideas and taking chances can allow us to see the true beauty in this silly game called LIFE.
So beLIeVE, dig down deep, and take the plunge 💫
Pulling myself outta the Monday blues 😩
Happy Motivation Monday! ☄️⭐
I've been listening to Rachel Hollis a lot on YouTube and she is fantastic. She reminded me this week why my goal is bigger than the goal itself. It's because I love the person I'm becoming and shaping. She's also helped me realize that it's important to be specific with myself with my goals and make sure that I'm actually setting them in the first place. Nothing arbitrary and something that I can really feel and see in my mind. I'm going to start writing down my goals in the morning, but as if I've already reached them. For example, "I am wicked awesome physical shape" and "I only fly first class" were some of her goals that I might steal 🙈
I’ve been a little quiet lately. Taking some time to reflect, and be present with myself. I’ve taken some time to remind myself that I am bold, I am strong, and I can do anything. The same mantra I teach my little girls. I must practice what I preach and lead by example. .
I’m a firm believer that I am in charge of my future. I am in charge of making the decisions to get me to where I want to be. Even if some changes may not be easy, they are needed for planting new seeds, and growing.
This week take some time out for yourself, slow down, and appreciate the blessings you have. Be grateful for those around you, and be kind. We never know the silent battles those around us are facing.

We’ve only been in school 📚for a little over a month (seems krazy huh).. What can I say about my classmates...We spend so much time ⏱together! We are all COMPLETELY different and it oddly makes everything perfect 💯 . I know the first day of class we were quite🤓 af- we were all trying to figure out what the vibe was gonna be like! 🧐Have you ever met someone and y’all just clicked? That’s what happened with the WHOLE class🙌🏼- we all just clicked! Other than my kids, I’ve never fell in love so fast! 💕My classmates are my family! I can literally depend on them no matter what! We truly care about each other🤞🏼, we give each other advice👍🏼👎🏼, we comfort each other🤟🏼, were each other’s cheerleaders👏🏼👏🏼, and we calm each other down💪🏼. When someone is missing, we know because it’s not the same with out everyone together👌🏼- The people in my class are my second family! ⭐️I tell them all the time how much they mean to me, but I’m making the relationship💥official and posting it on IG! Haha I love y’all so much💟! I would go to war with y’all‼️Y’all give me so much motivation, not just with school.. but LIFE. Thank Y’all SOO MUCH! 💛🍞🥖
(Yes I just made a hashtag for us- tag your posts so we can look back on them when we graduate)
Today for #MotivationMonday
I went down memory lane on my IgStories. I literally scrolled back to 2 1/2 years ago to look for a specific post and along the way I found some other pics. :
This past Friday I went to the mall and I happened to take a picture in Victoria Secrets and and while scrolling I spotted the pic on the left at Victoria Secrets from June 2016. I had already lost about 15 lbs (the button reminded me lol). Although I know there’s a huge difference the biggest thing that stuck out to me the most is what I’m wearing. I spoke about this in my stories today as well. I NEVER EVER wore shorts. It was always long workout pants and oversized long shirts to hide under oh and yes all black 🖤, which I still wear at time just because i love dressing in all black 🤷🏼♀️. The only pop of color you would ever see would be my shoes or lipstick. :
This transformation for me is one of my biggest victories. Having CONFIDENCE & an immense amount of SELF LOVE. No amount of weightloss can change how you feel about yourself. How you look and speak to yourself. My transformation on this journey started from the inside out and I believe that this is one of the main reasons I have been successful at achieving this 66lb weightloss. I’ve been maintaining for a few months now and it feels great to be able to do that, when before I’d start going backwards by this point. I’m very happy at the place I’m at but as always there’s always going to be room for improvement. :
I encourage you to watch my stories if you haven’t seen them yet before they disappear. If you watched them and felt inspired, motivated, anything...drop your feedback below 💖.
I don’t smile because my life is perfect. I smile because I can stand up for every time I fall. I can survive through the storm to then see the sun kiss my face.
Trust me, we all go through ups and downs. It’s not possible to always be happy, but it is possible to always have joy. A friend of mine explained to me the difference between these two words. He said happiness is a temporary feeling of arousal caused by chemical reactions in our brain. But joy is different, we have joy when even during suffering, we act towards the the wellbeing of others.
Having said that, we shall not be looking to always be happy because feelings are constantly changing and trying to control them is a lost case. Focus on finding joy which lasts forever.
