I’d lie if I didn’t find it hard to post this. One of the reasons I found running a business so hard was social media. The constant comparisons, the worry of someone not liking the product, worry that someone who I knew didn’t support... a number of fuelled self doubts which I just couldn’t handle. JSC is so close to my heart that I suppose I found it harder. Social media triggers in many ways. I have always struggled with it & I have had some amazing people support me with managing these accounts. Even though I have had nothing but positivity from this account, I still continue to self doubt!! It can be such a great supportive platform, invaluable but I struggle so much with it! Anyone else feel this way?

Drei Worte die erklären wie es mir die letzten Tage erging.Um zu verstehen weshalb müsste ich vielleicht kurz erklären.Erst ging mir der Zwillingskinderwagen kaputt dieser ist für Einkäufe,Wege zum Einkaufen u.längere Wege unersetzlich.Dann zeitgleich das Telefon u.Internet im Eimer.Kein Telefon.Kein Internet.Kein Auto.Kein Kinderwagen.Keine Flatrate auf meinen Handy da ich es schätze nicht ständig u.überall erreichbar zu sein.
Könnt ihr euch vorstellen wie man sich fühlt tagelang mit Sich selbst und mit den Kindern isoliert zu sein, für mich war das fast unerträglich nicht zu wissen wie ich den Mann kontaktieren soll oder im Notfall,ich weiß Luxusprobleme weil das "Internet"nicht ging aber darum geht's gar nicht.Mir geht's um diese krasse Abhängigkeit wenn man nicht weiß wie man was machen soll wenn wirklich Mal was ist.Ich war so hilflos,so isoliert und gebunden an Zuhause weil ich nicht argieren konnte wie ich wollte.Vielleicht auch weil ich soviel Zeit mit Mir allein hatte und so wenig Ablenkung wie,ja wie schon so lange nicht mehr,und irgendwas ist da in mir passiert.Nichts gutes.
Mir fehlte ein Ventil,mich auszudrücken,Gedanken loszuwerden die sich plötzlich in mir stauten weil da keiner war,immer mehr, dieses Gefühl ganz allein mit sich zu sein das erdrückte mich fast.Ohne Ablenkung.
Es gab eine Zeit die sich so anfühlte in meinem Leben.Die Zeit in der ich schwere Panikattacken hatte nicht mehr das Haus verließ u.verlassen konnte aus Angst.Da war ich isoliert ziemlich lange Zeit auf Dauer.Da war ich abhängig davon das mir einer Einkäufe erledigt oder zumindest mir Mal in den Arsch tritt.Da wollte ich raus aber konnte einfach nicht und genau SO fühlte ich mich die letzten Tage -
Obwohl ich raus konnte
Obwohl ich nur keinen richtigen Kontakt zu Familie u.Freunden hatte
Und doch war da dieses leise Gefühl von Panik in mir.
Was wenn was passiert
Was wenn ich wen erreichen muss
Verantwortlich für meine Kinder
Total isoliert u.irgenwie allein mit allem
Dieses Gefühl allein mit allem dazustehen,so hilflos,so atemlos.Kein schönes Gefühl. 📷Made by son
It’s the weekend and I’m feeling SASSY! 💃🏻 🍹. •
This week had a lot of balance - which is RARE in my world. I’m one to live in extremes and be consistently inconsistent. The biggest difference in this week versus others has been not saying YES to everything (social events, late nights, work requests, large meal portions 😜). A girl can only get so much done in a day! •
I always thought I overcommitted to avoid making anyone else mad. But I realized I’M the one creating an obstacle course out of my life 💡 I know we all get “ga-ga” over the cliche mindfulness stuff, but living it this week has been night and day 🌓. I’m about it! •
So tonight, I’m going to keep these Buddha vibes rolling and practice some MODERATE drinking at @theflamingonashville
🌴 What was the highlight of your week? ⭐️
Everyday, no matter what my schedule consists of, I make sure to add some playtime in. I’m working a lot right now, but that doesn’t mean there is an absence of fun! I squeezed in an hour of sunbathing before my schedule is off to the races again 🐎 oh, and I’m rocking that cellulite with no shame over here ✌🏻 try it! Your body is perfect in every way💗 #embraceyourself #strongissexy #yogagirl

My client showed me this app where you can completely change your face. Now I know what’s wrong with society. If I’d wanted to, I could become flawless. I had the ability to change my nose from length, width even tip. I could have bigger eyes and even more angles. I could’ve inflated my upper or lower lip and even changed my face shape for $1.50 a month. How is this an honest representation of who we are and why can’t we be who we were born to look like, without feeling pressure to look like the new kardashian normal. I am sickened by this misrepresentation of ourselves in order to be accepted, especially having daughters. I am so lucky to have self aware, non conforming, confident children and I feel bad for the kids who aren’t. All I did in this pic was make my nose smaller and I feel like a fraud. For every person who filters their selfies, just know that you are lying to others and yourself. Accept yourself and your beauty and don’t try to change for anyone. That’s what’s wrong with the world and it’s so sad #selflove #selfacceptance #dontusefilters #embraceyourself #betruetoyourself #agegracefully #loveyourself #dontconform #confidenceissexy #bereal
Please and thank you.
asked me how to break up with a summer fling... ⚡️
🙇🏼♀️ My thoughts:
“As challenging as it may be, try and celebrate your fling for all it gave you,” says @thankyouheartbreak.
“Maybe it was companionship on a Sunday or extraordinary late night sex. Maybe it was causality after getting out of a relationship that was too much. Maybe it was confidence, carelessness, or simply a glimpse into what you are and are not ready for. It can be any of these things or none of them at all. The point is time shared is time worth celebrating.”
“Make sure they know what they meant to you and, that even if it was short, it was something,” adds Trescott. “Having appreciation and grace on your way out will help you both heal faster and it won’t burn the bridge that you may want to be there next summer. Remember, sincerity is a superpower even in the summertime when everyone’s supposed to be carefree and just having fun.”
What do you think?
How would you want to be let go of?
What’s your #superpower
YOU have EVERYTHING it takes to:
1. pass the exam you’ve been studying so hard for
2. Get the dream job you’ve always wanted
3. Reach the fitness goal you have set for yourself
4. Make this world a better place 💕
You have to start believing that you are capable of doing all the things we often tell ourselves we cannot do . We make up excuses like “ I am not smart enough.” “ No one will like me.” “ I have no time to work on my own health.” “ No one cares about what I think or say.” At the end of the day, you need to fuel your mind with the world YES. YES I can pass that exam, YES I can get my dream job, YES I can achieve my fitness goals, YES my words and actions do help this world.
Start replacing the I can’t, with I can & believe in yourself. Good things will happen🙏🏽
Saw this at the cutest little restaurant yesterday and had to snap a pic cause I couldn’t agree more! It’s easy to judge when you think everyone should be more like you but the judgement stops and empathy comes in when you learn to appreciate how different others are from you.
Being less judgmental and more appreciative is something I’m still working on (like just today I judged someone for saving a spider instead of killing it because I just don’t get the whole “save the spiders” thing 😬 #donthateme
when I could have just appreciated their bravery and kindness towards... even spiders!) What’s something you tend to judge others for that you could learn to appreciate instead? 🦊💛🌟
“Posting this makes me feel vulnerable. But the reality is, so many of us women have cellulite in one place or another and I want to take this moment to talk about it. I remember when I first went through puberty and developed cellulite. My thoughts were so negative that I tried every ‘remedy’ that existed in order to shift the stubborn dimpled flesh that covered my hamstrings.
Society views cellulite as a bad thing. A “bad” or “ugly” consequence of being “overweight.” Cellulite results from an interaction between connective tissue in the dermatological layer! In women, fat cells and connective tissue in this layer are arranged vertically. In men, the tissue has a crisscross structure, which may explain why men are less likely to have cellulite than women.
Genetics, exercise & dietary habits all play a role in the development of cellulite but at the end of the day, you could be crazy fit & toned and STILL have cellulite. Cellulite is just another part of me, another part of you. If you’re reading this, you are beautiful with or without cellulite. Appreciate your body with everything that you have & stop comparing yourself to others, you’re perfect just the way you are. 💘🔥✨🙏🌴🌼💯🌈”

As humans, we are incredibly visual and drawn to things that are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. ⠀
I mean, that's kind of why Instagram is so successful, isn't it? And why you're here doing the scroll? 🤔⠀
But did you know it takes AT LEAST 7 points of contact with a potential client or customer before they decide on taking any action? 😱⠀
Yup, it's true. ⠀
That's why it's so important for you to SHOW UP. 💃🏻⠀
Top of mind awareness. 🔥⠀
Whether that's on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, your blog, your email list, in-person networking events, etc. ⠀
🙏🏼 If they don't see you, they don't know about you. 🙏🏼⠀
It's YOUR responsibility to show up in front of the clients and customers you want to attract. ⠀
Yes, people can find you on their own. ⠀
But you have to CREATE WAYS for your dream clients, customers, and community to find you. ⠀
AND to keep them interested and engaged (i.e. provide value). 🕵🏻♀️ ⠀
As you probably already know, designing a thoughtful and strategic brand and marketing strategy takes up a lot of time, work, and intention. (Which is why, if it’s not your zone of genius, it’s not a good idea. 🙅🏻♀️) ⠀
When we work on your brand together, we're not just pretty something together that "looks pretty", but something that will truly resonate with your dream clients. ⠀
Every interaction with your brand should have them saying "YES, I want MORE of this in my life." 🙌🏼 ⠀
My branding packages are going up at the end of this month. If you'd like to lock in my introductory rate while it's still available, you'll save $600 OFF your full branding experience. ⠀
