So many people spend their whole lives waiting for the right “timing” to make changes.
I know, because I was once one of those people..... I can’t tell you how many times I told myself....”Ok, I’ll start my diet and get back in the gym on Monday.” The Mondays came and went....for a little more than two years of my life...and I told myself that same lie over and over. “Next Monday....” Those years are time in my life that I’ll never get back....time that I lost looking for some excuse as to why I needed to wait to start making the necessary changes to move forward.
Until one day, ready or not....I decided that I was tired of waiting.
Tired of looking in the mirror and feeling defeated...
Tired of making excuses...
Tired of feeling broken...
Tired of the uncertainty...
Tired of the heartache...
Tired of feeling like I was just letting my dreams pass me by....
Tired of feeling like I wasn’t enough...
Tired of shoving the desires of my heart to the side...
Tired of beating myself up over the “would haves”, “could haves” and “should haves”...and I finally decided that I had wasted enough of my life waiting for the right timing.
So, no matter where you are in life...or how ready or not that you feel....just take that leap...and learn to fly on the way down.
Have faith...trust the process...and know without a doubt that God has a plan for your life...and that plan doesn’t include being stuck in a place where you’re unhappy or unfulfilled.
Believe that there’s something more....but know that it’s up to you to pursue it.
So thankful I took that first step in the right direction...even when I didn’t feel ready.
And guess what....when I finally decided to start....it wasn’t even on a Monday. 💕#liveyourbestlife #pruviteveryday #lifebydesign #empowered
Everyone isn't all bad and the bad ones can't decide it for the rest of us.
The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment, it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others, it is in yourself alone.
Good morning ☀️
Did back and cardio yesterday!
Started out with a five-minute incline walk on the treadmill then went into side lunges and grapevines on the treadmill for a little hiit circuit to get me sweating 😅 🔘 Lat Pulldowns (not videoed) 🔘 Cable standing single rows 🔘 Cable rope pulldowns (idk the official name) 🔘 Cable rope lat pulldowns 🔘 Cable Rope Face Pulls: did a superset and completed one at about chest level to get the lower back and one at eye level to hit the rear deltoids
Sorry for the terrible video angles/quality I am filming these by myself and was trying to be discreet 🤪

No need to hedge your bets. God's plan for you is fail-proof no matter what you face. Finish strong by trusting Him. #BetterMe #FaithUp
Time to get real... I am a hot mess mom. .
Look at these cuties who call me Mommy!!! Who knew these sweeties would push me to the end of myself and refine me to be a better person. .
Motherhood is a journey I knew I always wanted. However, I did not realize how I could feel so loved and empty at the same time. .
Being a mother is one of the most sacrificial roles I get to play. Sometimes I get stuck in the mundane, repeating questions/answers, rephrasing the same statement 20 ways, and referring that I don't see the blessings behind all of the above. I was *chosen to be their Mommy and get to teach them amazing things like having a strong foundation in faith, love, serving others, and watching them discover their strengths and talents. .
Ways that help me is worship music, talking to friends when I need perspective, getting in the word, and self care. .
This song is bringing so much life to my soul lately in this season of motherhood: https://youtu.be/sIaT8Jl2zpI .
A sweet friend told me yesterday she does 1 thing for herself for every 3 things she does for her family. I am going to try this! .
What do you do to not get lost on this journey? Please share ❤
