Happy to say... This is 30. I have a few more wrinkles, I get to wear yoga pants to work, I help heal those around me. I have the most amazing bunch of friends and family, I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. 🙌🏻🤗💫❤️#dharmababy #loveyourselffirst
So often do we tell ourselves not to feel...
That showing emotion is a sign of weakness...
That showing you care about something is foolish...
But in reality, embracing your emotions does so much good. It’s a form of self validation and affirmation. It keeps you from burying and numbing. It helps you communicate, find triggers, and create healthy coping habits
Feeling is one of the greatest things about being human. Yes, the negative emotions aren’t the best, but they serve as warnings. They are a way to collect information. And they act as perspective. You should want to feel all of them to help guide you on your path
I hope you feel something, anything, today. And I hope you can connect with someone else feeling the same - because we all feel the same realm of emotions (unless you have an emotional/brain disorder that doesn’t allow for that of course)

Humility has nothing to do with lack of self love or self worth, being meek or acting less than. Pride has nothing to do with knowing ones worth and value.
In fact, the complete opposite is true.
Humility is born of being fully aware of one's inherent value and worth - so that the process of learning, growing, expanding and changing which comes from being open to feedback can occur.
One who is humble KNOWS how loved and worthy they are, so they are able to stand corrected, to take criticism and find the value in it, are able to improve upon what they are doing and how they are serving without losing self esteem or respect. They are able to offer services at a point where those who need them can access them rather than needing to over inflate their importance with being overly demanding or self important.
Those who lack humility have the lowest self esteem. They feel so unimportant and badly that any criticism or feedback feels like an attack on their essential nature and truth. They over charge and over demand to try to fill the void within. This shows there is no self respect.
Humility is born of self love. Self love does not create cowards, but rather those who can live in honest integrity.
Be humble. It looks good on you. It means you know your worth.

OUTDOOR WORKOUTS, I've missed you
I had a great workout at the park last night using a bench, a tree & my body weight. Here's some of the exercises I did.
For outdoor workouts I like to do full body. I pick 3-4 exercises and do them 2-3 times then move to the next. I like to do a upper body move, lower body move and then something to get my heart rate ⬆️
Dear Girlfriend, Grateful Morning, It’s ⏰ to chase some endorphins🏃🏾♀️ #cardiotime
.........💜 yourself, mind, soul & body
Beautiful morning friends & family. Since having an unexpected appendectomy I’ve had so much time to think & feel alive. I believe everything happens for a reason and my reason was to tell me to #STOP
. I act so quickly to please people at the risk of my own health & happiness. With that being said, yesterday I hung up my clippers and turned in my notice to the vet. I know God has a plan for Clint & myself and it’s time to #balance
our lives. I challenge you to do the same, step back, take a few breaths and make your life, health, & happiness your #priority #loveyourselffirst #positivity #nonegativity #followyourheart
Oprah Winfrey said, “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.”
So today I celebrate living my Life filled with faith, love and kindness. What are you celebrating today?
I’m droppin a #shamelessselfie
in an effort to show myself some love today. You should too. Why? Because self love and care is SO IMPORTANT. We cannot give the love we wish to give to others without first loving ourselves. (Cliche af? Yes. But so stinkin’ true!).
The journey to self love isn’t always paved in gold. Sometimes there are pot holes, bumps and wrong turns. It’s OK, it happens to us all. Know you are not alone in your struggle..
Today, I challenge you to drop a selfie, Go for a run, get a mani/pedi, take your vitamins, go to the gym, get your hair done, take a yoga class 😉 or whatever you need to do to fill your cup with some fresh, steaming hot self love.
Self love & care looks different for everyone and it isn’t always fun like getting a manicure, sometimes it’s eating healthier or cutting sugar out of our diet (🙋🏼♀️😭) What’s your favorite way to fill your cup? Let us know in the comments below! 👇🏼.

I love this @neutrogena
foundation ❤️. It blends right in and long lasting. Very natural looking color. This shade is perfect for me and it is smooth and covers all my blemishes. What’s your favorite foundation?
So I haven’t posted to Instagram in quite some time and I’ve been trying to think why that is. I think it’s because I find this place to be a journal. A place to let my thoughts out and encourage myself to move forward. I find inspiration in other people’s posts. Other people’s achievements. And other people’s success. However if I only post when I’m feeling down then I’m not quite contributing!! So here’s to help inspire others... I’ve achieved a lot recently and after my latest accomplishment I finally realized something. That maybe I’m not just being handed these opportunities. Maybe I do work hard and earn some of them. I have and always will be humble. I will always be aware of my privileges. But today I stand up and give myself a little of the credit. I worked hard. I continue to work hard. And I truly do deserve what I’ve earned. #feelingproud #remaininghumble
Show me whatcha got lil mammaaa🌴 loving my wee swimsuit🍉🍉
