Someone asked me if I could give my old self one advice what would it be. I said “ keep believing in your intuition”. Every year you experience growth. 💯❤️#myjourneycontinues
Today’s discomfort. On waking up push-ups we’re the last thing I felt like doing. That was the exact signal I needed in order to do them.
My story is filled with broken pieces, terrible choices, and ugly truths. It’s also filled with a major comeback, peace in my soul, and a grace that saved my soul. -
What if I told you at one point in my life I was so broken from the choices I made and the way I was living my life that I no longer valued myself. I put on a pretty smile and on the outside it looked like I had everything together but on the inside I was an ugly mess. I struggled with whether or not God could even love me because some of the choices I made. My heart was so cold I was almost unloveable. -
The greatest thing about Gods love for us is that we are never too far gone. Even at our worst and in our darkest places he finds a way to show us how he loves us. He finds a way to grab a hold of you and pull you out. I know because I have two beautiful boys that wake up everyday and show me the purest love that I imagine is just like the love Christ has for us. He gave me them to save me. To save me from myself and from people and situations that I allowed in my darkest. -
If you were to ask me if I believe in Gods grace and the love he has for us I would show you a picture of my babies and tell you of how they saved me because to me they are every single ounce of grace that has been offered to me. You’re never to far gone friend. .

I call this big guy my fashion pup 🐶 My sweet boy turned 1 years old this past week and the little monster is still growing!
I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but we are getting ready for the Holidays early in our house hold. Cauldur has been underneath my feet loving all the glitter and ribbon. I’ve had to kick him out the room several times, but I think he finally gets the hint that the ornaments aren’t toys🧸 .
We have two Christmas trees: a 4 foot candy cane themed and a 6 foot burgundy and gold that will be transformed into a Harry Potter themed tree next year. The colors are there, but I’ll need a few more things that just weren’t in the budget this year. .
We are doing things early since we won’t be home for Christmas this year. We have a wedding to say “I Do” at on Dec 29. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, & help us soon to be Newly Weds ring in the New Year🎉

So this is 38. Ever since my mother passed away 12 years ago at the age of 54 I haven’t been one for birthdays. Losing a parent so young, and them being young themselves, stays with you. I will be the first to admit my anxiety tells me to be scared about getting older and often times it succeeds. I do feel that continually feeling like I am checking off another year has taken away some of my ability to live. Damn anxiety. Albeit 38 is not old. I feel like I have had a heck of a lot of life experience in a short amount of time so with that said I am choosing to let my guard down this year and embrace what is to come instead of fearing its ending, and truth be told there have been times in my life where I didn’t know how to face another day, and I’m choosing to be grateful to be given the gift of another year. I will embrace being perfectly imperfect. Deep down in my soul I know there is so much life to live, so many things left to learn and so much good to come. There is so much more of my journey I want to share with you and so many more ways I want to connect all of us so I thank you from the bottom of my heart for riding along.
A shout out to Claire Magee for sending me the sweet message today! 》Ya'll... I really am part of the best company ever! Not only are our products pretty freaking awesome... But I have two amazing leaders, Christen Smith Patin & Claire Magee, that believe in me and cheer me on! You can have all the great products, but without a supportive and caring team, it can be difficult to get to where you want to be! Thank you both for everything... for believing in me, pushing me and always there for me!!! 😘😘

Life is a series of choices. Some you love to make. Some you don’t notice you’re even making. Some you hate to make. Some you make with hope and excitement despite uncertainty. Some are the best thing for you then, but not later. Some others don’t understand. All affect how you feel in life. .
While I love to travel and have something for me, the worst part is leaving my babies, but it’s a choice I feel great making because what I hated more......was leaving them 4 evenings a week every single week. That was my choice then and it gave me the best of both worlds then. I chose to be away for more of their sleeping hours and be home during the day while they were awake, exhausted from working until after midnight, but there and not paying most of what I made in childcare. It was a choice I had the privilege of making due to scheduling options in my field and I made it knowing it was the best thing for us. And I loved it. .
I had a new opportunity to choose down the road, though. I didn’t have to take it and I wondered if it would feel right, but I made a choice. I chose to pursue a life where I could be away for work & pleasure a few days every few months and with my kids every other second. It didn’t happen immediately, but I knew that it was a long term option if I chose to take it for myself and chose to make it happen. .
I’m sure some people didn’t understand it, but caring about that is just another choice. .
It’s one I chose not to make because caring about what anyone else thought didn’t go hand in hand with what is best for me and my family and that.....that’s always going to be the choice I make. .
So yup, I kissed my babies and left today, for the last trip of an amazing year where I flew away more than ever, but had more goodnight kisses with my kids than I would have ever had doing what I used to think was best. .
So do I feel guilty leaving? Not one bit, because guilty is also a choice and I don’t need to make it.
▪️ life is full of choices
▪️ how you live it is your choice ▪️ you’re given choices every day
▪️ you’re the one making them ▪️ 5 years ago I made this one
▪️ if you want to make the same one, you can.
My face when I’m running late and see all the snow on my car that needs brushed off 😑
So, I am here for my chemo, for my 9:15am appointment. Well, how about my appointment was actually at 11:15am. 🙄 I ALWAYS put my appointment on my calender as soon as they give it to me, but not sure what happened. There was a cancellation, and Dr. Moore saw me early. Otherwise, I would have just waited. My weight is stable, blood pressure good. My next PET scan will be in another month. My next treatment will be on December 6th. My wbc was lower than last time, but Dr. Moore approved me having my treatment today. All is well, and I'm just about done! Time to swim some more! Rain, rain go away! Everyone please be safe and stay dry!
