Keeping it short and sweet with some #MondayMotivation 💕 - I’m currently waiting at the airport to head home after spending the weekend in South Lake Tahoe. On the way back we unfortunately got caught in traffic because of the snow, doubling the time to drive back 😩 But what’s important is we made it out safely and in time for my flight! (Which was actually delayed, which worked in my favor this time! ✈️🙌🏼) . . . . #motivationmonday #mondaze #inspiration #selfcare #motivation #everysquareastory #photosinbetween #lovelysquares #inspiremyinstagram #visualcrush #theeverygirl #oneofthebunch #feelfreefeed #morningslikethese #seekthesimplicity #darlingmovement #postitfortheaesthetic #pursuewhatislovely #fromabove #liveunscripted

Just sitting here feeling absolutely and completely in awe and in love with my family. We are full time working parents, who teach other people’s very emotionally disturbed and challenged children. Our jobs can drain us, albeit it we are very thankful for them. At the end of the day though...this is what we come home to. Them. Each other. Us. “Live from the abundant place that you are loved” is my all time favorite @lysaterkeurst quote because seriously, how beautiful are those words?
Monday is officially over 🌟Hands hands, people ... hands mutha fuckin’ hands 🙌🏼🙌🏼
Something I've been trying to make more time for in my everyday life is journaling. I think it's so therapeutic, but I rarely make time for it so I miss out on the benefits most of the time! Recently I've been trying to spend 15 minutes in the morning writing out my thoughts before I start my day. That’s usually when my mind is the most cluttered and it feels good to get it all out on paper!⠀ I actually wrote a blog post awhile back about why journaling is the best therapy, in case you've never tried it and need a good reason to start! I re-linked the post in my bio if you wanna read it! 😊
One of my favorite things about Shanghai is this crazy dichotomy of modern and ancient, functional and glamorous, traditional and fresh, all in one place.
Hates vacation. 😍💙 This pose was all his idea, and you bet I went along with it. (Want a “hey, vacation is the best ever” reality check? This kid is SO DIFFICULT. He’s hilarious and easy going and fun, but omg we must negotiate every single thing. He is the kid who runs away in a busy parking lot. Who pushes buttons and laughs. And I love him so, but ahhhh, don’t believe the highlight reel, my friends. We all work for it.)
As I was driving home the other day after a business meeting with my bestie, I noticed how fast everyone was driving on the interstate. This is not necessarily a new observation, but it got me thinking that when people are so concerned about driving fast and weaving in and out of traffic, they aren’t really focused on the present moment. So as people were whizzing by me, I paid attention to the present moment—and this is what I discovered... I saw a bird swoop down and land on a post; i passed a pond; I noticed the bright green of new birth on the trees; I noticed the golden plants gently swaying in the breeze; I watched the leaves falling to the ground; I saw a man fishing in his boat; and I noticed the majesty of the palm trees as they lined the overpass. Slow down. Take time to notice the beauty around you 💜
~There is beauty in simplicity~

Day 30/100 of #the100dayproject . This flag is in a neighbor’s yard. I see it every day, but as I was going home this evening, I noticed the flag gently swaying in the wind against the backdrop of the blue sky, which prompted me to stop and take a photo 💙

You see the guy on the bottom who’s one chisel away from the room full of gorgeous diamonds? That was me in 2016. . That guy on the top, that was my friend and brilliant spoken word poet, @kirknugent2. . When I told Kirk I was going to quit this whole entrepreneur thing because I was getting too many no’s when I put myself out there, Kirk got me to do a total 180. . He told me how @oprah ’s first boss told her she was too emotional and not right for TV. In 2011, Oprah was the best-paid female in the entertainment industry. . He shared how at age 22, Walt Disney was fired from a job for "not being creative enough." He went on to hold the record for the most Oscars won by an individual. . And he pointed out that after Elvis Presley's very first performance, his manager said, "You ain't goin' nowhere, son. You ought to go back to drivin' a truck." He went on to sell over 1 billion records. . Thank God for Kirk because in that moment, I decided to persist through the no's to get to my yes. . And all that rejection got me to go from ugly crying and binge-watching the Bachelor while being sooooo close to quitting on my big business dreams… . To being featured in 20 media outlets, podcasts & speaking engagements last year without chasing after a single soul. . Rejection is my magic fuel in business and if you hop on over to my Facebook page below tomorrow, Tuesday Feb. 20 at 1pm PST, I'm going to show you how to persist through the no's to get to your yes of being noticed as an in-demand expert in your business. . https://www.facebook.com/gladys.ato.9 . My Live tomorrow will also give you a taste of what it's like to be in High Demand, my spectacular masterclass series that starts Feb. 26. Classes are filling up and the deadline to apply is this Friday, so head on over to the link in my profile to check it out. . See you Live tomorrow! . . .

“I’m so focused on becoming the best version of myself that I don’t really take the time to appreciate who I am at the moment.” 💬 Getting really real in today’s blog post.

What a welcome! #aime2018
I don’t think I could come up with a better thing to say tonight other than to quote Matthew McConaughey’s speech from his 2014 Oscar. ⠀ I think it’s really hard to stay mentally consistent in your ever struggling twenties. So this helps me stay #motivated . ⠀ ⠀ “I need three things every single day. ⠀ ⠀ I need something to look up to, ⠀ I need something to look forward to, ⠀ And I need something to chase.⠀ ⠀ First, I want to thank God because he’s who I look up to. He has graced my life with opportunities that I know are not of my hand or any other human hand. ⠀ ⠀ He has shown me that it is a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates... ⠀ ⠀ To my family, that’s who and what I look forward to. . . ⠀ ⠀ When I was 15 years old I had a very important person in my life come up to me and ask me who is my hero. I said I have to think about it give me a few week. Two weeks later they came and asked me again. ‘Who is your hero?’⠀ ⠀ I said ‘ya know I thought about me, it’s me in 10 years.’⠀ ⠀ So I turned 25. 10 years later that same person asked me, ⠀ ‘So are you a hero?’ ⠀ ⠀ I said, ‘Hell no, not even close.’⠀ She said, ‘why?’⠀ I said, ‘because my hero is me at 35.’⠀ ⠀ So you see everyday, every week, every year. My hero is always 10 years away. I’m never going to be my hero. I’m never going to obtain that. And that’s okay because it gives me something to keep chasing.” ⠀ ⠀ So to all of you out there. I hope you have something to look up to, something to look forward to, and someone to always keep chasing. ⠀ Never stop chasing. ⠀ ✌🏼♥️⠀ >⠀ >⠀ >⠀ #photog #bloggers #sheisnotlost #sheshungry #pdx #portrait #bloggerstyle #blogging #bloggerlife #pdxblogger #photosinbetween #shetravels #vscotrvael #girlswhotravel #oregonexplored #shewanders #oregonnw #pdxbloggers #stronggirls #worjouttime #blogs #shesquatsbro #happyhumpday #bootybuilder #squatlife #entrepreneur #hustleandgrind #girlbossblogger #relentless

Grant and I went on a great walk down by Mill Creek today! The trail was only about a mile, but that was enough time for my damp hair to freeze solid and Grant’s ear to turn purple. ❄️ It was a nice practice round for some other weekend when the roads to Montana aren’t closed. 😭 The windchill was no joke, but it sure was nice to get off campus. Also, there’s a new post on my blog!!! Link in bio!!! 💛
This one is for the guys out there. Anyone else struggle with feeling inadequate as a man because a lack of mechanical or construction skills? 🙋🏻‍♂️ Today on the way home from work, the second headlight in our car went out and I knew I had to face the music and change the headlights... I’ve never changed headlights... My dad is in maintenance and can basically fix anything and I mean ANYTHING like it is second nature. I mean he fixes things for a living. But me (the son of a maintenance man) has little to no mechanical skills... And if we’re being honest, this has caused me a lot of shame and pride along the way. I’ve felt like I should just know how to do these things. It’s as if I’m less of a man for not knowing them. I’m afraid Maison will wake up someday and realize she married a fraud of a man. A man who can’t change a headlight. A man who ultimately can’t provide for her. And this haunts me. 👻 But when I’m able to swallow my pride and ask for help — even from an AutoZone employee — I can end the night feeling empowered by something as simple as changing a headlight. Any other guys out there struggle with this? You are not alone! -C
We wear pink whenever the F we want! 👯‍♀️👯‍♀️ This pink wall totally reminds me of my Mean Girls squad 💕 We will be saying this to you a lot when you move to Austin, Stan!! But we love you and are soooo proud of ya! You go, glen coco! 👊🏻
Dreaming of summer & sunshine & a good book & a front porch like this one ☀️

When your bff buys you macaroons because you don’t have enough money to buy them 😍 thank you! @yinie.___.nicasio
Who else thinks @sheratonsenggigilombok swimming pool looks like a video game map! How amazing! 😍
🌿Everyone said we’d get so much more house for our $$ in Texas & while that was true a couple years ago, the market was similar to South Lincoln’s when we bought 😏. Our mortgage remained about the same. 🏡 🌿This month, I was able to cover ✨TWO✨ months of mortgage payments w/Monat & I’m shocked. 😱 I work 2 hours per day around the fam. 🌿If you’ve always flirted with the idea of a side hustle, GO FOR IT. If it doesn’t work out- oh well 🤷🏼‍♀️ & if it does, think of all the time & money freedom you’ll have. 👊🏼 #winwin #thisisnotourpracticelife #noregrets
✨All of THIS. ♥️

This is the start of my lil forgotten garden. I literally chucked in some dried out capsicum seeds and hello babies.

🌿I hope when you talk to me, you can feel His love oozing from my words. You can see my intentions are to know you. Really know you. Because I do believe each one of us has a powerful story & ridiculously awesome gifts He’s designed so perfectly. And I just hope that comes across in all that I do & if it’s the only trait I pass down, that all 3 of my girls inherit it. #Hisperfectlove
I had an awesome weekend at Yosemite with my fellow brothers and sisters 💕 hope to come back soon!

🌿I’m obsessed with her icy blonde color! 💁🏼‍♀️ I mean...just looks at what these products have done for her hair! 😱 think how amazing she feels?!? 😍 “My blonde has never looked better!!!! I have fine hair- but there is a lot of it- so it breaks off easily making it look thinner than what is should be- THANK THE HEAVENS ABOVE FOR MONAT! Finally growth in my front! A complete 180 in 5 months!”

🌿It’s Thursday AND almost a long weekend! 🙌🏻💃🏼 Can I get a woot woot?!??
🌿Own it friends. At the end of the day there’s only one you & that’s pretty damn special ♥️🙌🏻
✨When your dream has always been to travel Europe...not just one 10-day vaca, but several trips to explore & get caught up in crazy adventures. It just makes my heart beat a little faster & then.... ...the company your a rep with announces they are launching in Europe NEXT WEEK! 😭☺️🙌🏻 What the what?!? #dreamsdocometrue #boldvinehairtribe
🌿In a world where hate runs thick, we have the ability to rise above it. To help someone believe in themselves. To spread love. To resist envy & negativity. To help someone know we care. Lift up a friend today that you know is going through a hard time. You’ll make their day & in turn, your heart will be full. #spreadlove #changetheworld #wecandobetter
Never forget you are worth more than the value you place on yourself... 💭 Sometimes we can be our own harshest critics and healing can only come from learning to be kinder to ourselves, nourishment and earthy reverberations! 🍂 - - - - - - - - - - #quietchaotics #tinytinymoments #ofsimplethings #theslowdowncollective #awakethelight #smallmomentsofcalm #simpleandstill #alittlebeautyeveryday #momentsofmine #theeverydayproject #petitejoys #thehappynow #photosinbetween #flashesofdelite
