Yes a random Instagram picture but this picture represents my whole New Years goals! #notsweatingthesmallstuff
My darling husband did an amazing job over the weekend working in our garden and watching the kids while I enjoyed a day of pampering. It is now Tuesday and these dirty socks are sitting on the floor in the hall way! Whilst my initial response was to get mad that he left them there I decided to take a moment and be thankful that I have an amazing husband who can help make our home look beautiful. Yes the socks on the floor are frustrating but every night I have someone to share my daily highlight reel with.

I've reached out to a few "wish" clients recently without response and I was getting a little down. I was behind on my to-do list and mastering the art of procrastinating because I was overwhelmed. Then I read a few really inspiring MLK quotes and remembered that I'm not in business because of business (although it's a necessity), I'm in business to help people. And I also remembered that for every few "no's" there's a yes waiting for you right around the corner.
Optimism, perseverance, and courage - 3 qualities that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. possessed that I summoned today. What came out of it? A complete to-do list, a new website client, and a new social media client. I'm now overwhelmed with excitement that Jus B Media gets to solve problems for these small businesses!

“I don’t like that person. I must get to know them better”.
How many times have you not liked someone the first time you met them? 🙋🏻♀️
How many times have you taken the time to figure out WHY and get to know them better so that you can love them SO HARD?! 🤷🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️
Morganne and I got off to a rocky start. I got off my first call with her and instantly judged her and the interaction we had. In fact, I told another individual “she wasn’t my people”. But I’m so glad that didn’t stop me.
Instead of writing her off, I approached our friendship with a vengeance. I wanted to know WHY she was the way she was on that first call. Instead of taking it personally, I dug in.
While I won’t share her story of WHY that day was so bad, I later found out she had just had a family confrontation moments before our call. She was rattled. She was checked out. She was on a call and it’s the absolute LAST place she wanted to be.
It’s been almost exactly a year since that time. M & I have become friends, business partners, confidants, and so much more. I’ve learned so much since meeting her. But most of all, I’ve learned to ask and engage more than ever! I used to run from digging in. I used to take everything at face value. I used to never want to know more and assume less. I used to be a terrible communicator. While I’m still not AMAZING at it, I get better everyday. I say a LOT “tell me more so I can understand MORE and jump to conclusions LESS”. Knowledge is powerful. Love is powerful. And taking a second look when you didn’t have the best start??? Powerful ❤️
Real talk. Homeownership isn’t for the faint of heart if you take care of your house yourself. I’ve been at it all day doing yard work and even up on the roof blowing out the gutters. I’m proud to handle my own and take care of what I’ve worked hard for. It’s a good feeling to not have to depend on anyone else. I made different decisions in my life but at the end of the day I’m proud with where I am. Im 27, still working on my undergraduate degree, but I’ve accomplished so much more in the meantime and in three semesters, I’ll have earned a degree as well. 🤘🏼

What do i do on a crappy snow ❄️ day?
I wear no make up
Live in my sweat pants
And do an ass load of laundry!
What do you do?
Post work HIIT yet again tonight at 9pm (hence the lack of smiles in this selfie 😝), cause I decided a nap was more important earlier, I just do not learn 🤦🏼♀️😂 As long as it gets done though eh? 😁
Aside from a wee bit of moaning about HIIT (I really do f*cking hate it 😂) & lack of cake in my life though I am actually love love loving being strict with myself with nutrition & cardio again for the first time in ages, I just thrive on it, it’s my thing 🙌🏼☺️ I’m always on the ball with training cause lifting weights is my one true love haha, but I can get pretty scatty on the diet front & I’ve been known to ditch cardio near enough altogether for months on end 😅 Once I flip that wee switch in my mind & decide I’m going to make sh*t happen though, I’m pretty unstoppable if I may say so myself 🥳
I think it’s important to give yourself a break sometimes. Very few people are 100% on it ALL the time. Life happens. Cake happens 😆 But the feeling of accomplishment from nailing it & seeing the results from your hard work has got to be one of the best feelings ever in my opinion, I’ve missed it 🙌🏼
Happy new week you guys, I hope blue Monday has been kind to you 💙🖤

This is the best anti depressant there is, I can be having a shit day but as soon as I get here all the stress goes away. 🙌🏻
Hey, y'all! It's Monday, but I thought I'd pop over and say hi!
I'm Megan Winkler and I'm a copywriter who fell in love with Pinterest! Why Pinterest? Because it's a visual search engine and a total GAME CHANGER for your business. I work with women to market their business with soul, joy, and fun (that's where Pinterest comes in!) and enjoy the profits that come with that shift.
But beyond my work, I wanted to share a few fun facts about me!
✨This year, I'm aiming to read 40 books. This doesn't sound like a lot, but I BARELY made it to 12 books in 2018 so it's kinda a big deal for me.
✨I adore Florence + the Machine - the band's music is central to the soundtrack of my life.
✨My master's degree is in military and American history, so I am, literally, a historian. I use what I learned about strategy and communication in my biz every day.
✨My favorite tea is Earl Grey, but I love coffee with a passion.
✨I finally watched "Die Hard" in 2018 and can confirm it is, in fact, a Christmas movie.
What about you? Introduce yourself below!

can be so easy and it has so many benefits, but it also has it’s major challenges.
On most days it totally works, but then there are days where my menagerie of animals call for attention and make it super hard to focus and be productive. My daughter’s cat wants to sit on my computer because it’s the warmest place in the house. The dogs bark at every single person to pass by the front door.
Ugh... so distracting and annoying. I’d love to hear what are some of the solutions ya’ll have for reducing distractions and #gettingshitdone
while working from home?
Who you’ll be tomorrow is NOT defined who you were yesterday.
Read That again.
Who you’ll be tomorrow is NOT defined who you were yesterday.
And maybe say it a little louder for those in the back. 🙌🏻 👏🏻 .
I have a lot of fear about a lot of things. But just because I feared them yesterday (or 9 years ago) doesn’t mean that it stops me from evolving into the person I want to become.
2010 Sarah. You see a half smile, a pretty dress, and a beautiful view. But what you don’t see are the things that crippled her in her tracks. She refused to confront issues. She refused to have a voice. She refused to work on weaknesses. She let life “happen” to her.
I’m really glad that that person doesn’t run my life today. I loved her and embrace her because she taught me so many things along the way. But I’m also glad that she decided that she didn’t have to be “stuck” where she was. She could work on herself. She could be Sarah 2.0. She could accomplish anything her heart desires.
If you would have asked me 9 years ago if I’d be running an online business where I had to be the face behind it all, I would have laughed in your face and called you a liar. But here I am, doing just that. I’m proof that you’re not a tree. You’re not rooted in one place. You can grow. You can evolve. You can accomplish anything you want. You’re not held back by who you were yesterday. You’re held back by who you refuse to work on.
Never in a million years did I think I would be able to do a move like this with a 30# dumbbell. 😱💪🏻
4 years ago I could barely do a reverse lunge let alone with a knee raise and a 30# DB. 🙌🏻🎉 That’s so huge. •
But can we just take a second and celebrate this #mombod
It’s not glam. 😍
It’s flabby. 🤣
And it’s pretty stretchy. •
But am I supposed to shame myself for it not having abs almost 4 years into this fitness thing?
I’m damn proud of where I’m at mentally and physically. I’m thankful for every word of encouragement I’ve received that’s kept me going. I’m grateful for the struggles that made me find my courage, my voice, and my inner peace. •
So here’s to rocking my mom bod and I LOVING IT. •

I got this #cossacplanner
last year and never got around to using it. Going to give it a try and see if I can keep myself more on track and motivated to do the things I want to be doing. Good thing I have such a cute little helper! 🐱❤️
