May our relationships teach us.
May we aim to awaken instead of merely just defending our confusion.
May our intention in love be to benefit all, and not merely to get what we want.
May our love life be gentle, honest and kind even when it cannot be fun or happy.
True love is borne in correct intention.
Miessence, putting your body at ease.
Sometimes, you can be your own worst critic. Be gentle on yourself Babe! Thank the glorious God for getting you where you’re at today. 🙌🏼 Keep going Radiant Babe! 🌈💖
To my fellow survivors of rape,
Even if you aren’t speaking out or up during this particular wave of heated conversation in the media (which is incredibly important—it always is), you are fighting the fight by making the choice to breathe another day. I’m with you. I see you. I am you.
We all must take turns at the front lines of the battle. And what a battle it is. It’s a marathon and though it feels like there will never be a finish line, there has been progress and we must care for each other and one another as we share our stories, open the eyes of people in the dark, challenge politicians, expose predators when it is safe to do so and hold everyone and everything to a higher standard. Sometimes one or many of us has to sit on the sidelines, whether it’s from exhaustion or terror—or because of anything else. We owe no one an explanation for why we did or did not say anything then or now. We light a torch for each other—for the survivors before us, alongside us and the ones ahead. And we march on in all the ways that we can. If it’s time for you to rest, take respite. You have earned it. And when it’s time for you to go to the front of the battlefield, others will take the time to rest, to grieve the loss of their safety and self before their first instance of abuse. This is a lifelong battle that we the survivors never get to step out of. We see, smell, feel, remember and hear all the ways we were violated in the expected moments but also in the suddenness of traumatizing elements we didn’t think could shake us but yet they do. It would be unfair to ask any survivor to unleash a harrowing war cry every single day. We are all warriors fighting how we can. Fighting to breathe. Fighting to survive. And sometimes that fight doesn’t look like a howl or a punch. Sometimes it’s in the form of a prayer or baking muffins or sitting on a bench or taking your kids to school or putting feet to pavement or writing letters or voting. We all speak up & out in our own ways and those ways can fluctuate because this battle isn’t nearly over. I’ll hold your sword when you’re resting, & I know you’ll do the same for me. For we the survivors are warriors & we will soldier on.
It's all about balance 👌🏼✨ Non-restrictive healthy and happy diet
Fed a little bit of my artsy side today. I’ve been walking past my pile of canvases for monthssss now for whatever reason *idk what to paint* *I don’t have the space/time* *my paints/brushes are in storage* & today I said F it, googled some cool calligraphy and put pencil to canvas (and drank alllll the tea and listened to alll the jams) It feels good to slow down and give your soul what truly makes it happy. Start with ten minutes a day and see how much you can expand it 👩🏼🎨✏️🖌💭 #thoughtsoftheday #justbreathe #selfcare #dowhatyoulove #sharpieart
Today’s workout and swipe left for photos from this weekends festivities ✨❤️ .
Today’s workout was challenging since it’s my first day back since I took a small break and I have been very lax with my nutrition #imlivingmybestlife
. I went with t25 for a quick cardio fix and kept fighting my hair through the whole workout 😂 soon after my workout was done the lake got hit with a crazy rain storm that caused the power to flicker a couple times!!! Got a little jumpy and hid under the blankets lol .
Saturday we went to jons grandmas house in Geneva Alabama for the day and enjoyed a nice lunch with her. Jim gave us a little tour of Geneva and I just love that they have a piggly wiggly 🙌😂
Sunday was Linda’s birthday 🎂 both Jon and I made her a homemade chocolate cake with a chocolate moose frosting 💕 I focused on the cake part while Jon made the moose 👌 we all enjoyed a nice steak and baked potato dinner with broccoli 🥦 Linda said she enjoyed her birthday very much this year ❤️ #sheturned29again
Time for dinner with my guys and a movie 🎥 ❤️✨

Today was virtual workout #2
But my partner overslept. I had a choice, I chose to go.
1.6 mile run
15 reverse lunges each leg
20 dead lifts
25 sumo squats
20 medicine ball crunches
50 mountain climbers
As I was lifting my intuition said turn around. I did but didn’t see anything and left. Walked back to my apartment and realized I had left my keys in the gym. You need keys to get in and it’s the same key as my house key. I chose to just breathe. I asked a young man who was going to work to let me in and he did.
2-3 handfuls juicing greens
Handful frozen berries
3 frozen strawberries
2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen

I FEEL dark, alone & hopeless. It’s hard to breathe sometimes. Shame and sorrow constantly fight for attention in my head. But feelings are not always FACT. I am choosing to cling to Truth. To the promise that says He (Truth, the Uncreated One... Jesus) He brings life from death. He gives me beauty for my ashes. I can’t wrap my mind around that yet. I’m still clinging to my urn of ashes. Though I hang my head in shame and sorrow He is the lifter of my head. There is no formula to walk through your dark place, my darlings. If you’re hurting there is no quick fix. However, I do know this : you MUST feel to heal. You don’t have to understand it all or even agree with it. But you MUST feel it. Process the pain. In whatever HEALTHY capacity works for you. To heal, I write. I find beauty in the mundane , every day simple things and capture it in a picture. Baby listen, this is your path. NO ONE can tell you how to walk this out, only that YOU MUST. You must walk it out. Cling to a rope of hope. When you need something, say something! Your needs are valid. Oh, and this one is a hard one for me : learn to simply receive. Whether it’s kindness. Love. A gift. A smile. Just receive it. !You will make it, friend. You’re not alone (even though it feels like you are) Take a step, or crawl an inch. Either way, keep going. ❤️ I believe in you. I believe in me too. #thisbiggirlsbattle #mymosaiclife #tohealiwrite #processingpain #findpurposeinyourpain #keepmovingforward #ibelieveinyou #ibelieveinmetoo #nami #depression #suicideawarenessmonth #ropeofhope #receive #jesusisTruth #uncreatedOne #justbreathe #sabrinadenise
If you watched my insta stories today, you know that I’m a huge fan of the new deodorant. A natural deodorant that works for me has been hard to find. The smell is amazing, it doesn’t give me a rash, and my armpits aren’t soaking wet. 🙌🙌🙌 And all of the ingredients are listed as a 1 on the EWG scale. This product will be available available October 1st! Who is excited to try this?! 💜💜💜
Some days, you just need to take a moment to pause what you're doing. Pause what you're thinking. And just soak in the present.
Sunsets are the perfect opportunity to do just that 🌇
I've had so much on my mind lately that I've seemed to be going a mile a minute. But, when I noticed the sun was about to disappear as we were leaving the gym, we had the forethought to jump in the car and head to our favorite local spot to watch it fully set. And we just watched it. We didn't talk. We didn't do anything except watch it sink beneath the horizon. We couldn't have stood still for more than a few minutes, but that was all we needed.
I get so distracted by life - by the biggness and smallness of it - that I can forget to live it. I appreciated this evening's reminder 💛

Maybe a word that always comes to my mouth when asked a question, but most importantly to the guy I’m crushing on. You ask me questions that I’m scared to answer not because I’m scared of you but because I’m scared of giving my all again. I’ve been hurt more then once. I’m scared of caring again. I like you I really do and I wish I could express how much you have made me have that stupid goofy grin when I’m around you. Or the way you make my heart flutter when a simple kiss occurs. Maybe it’ll work maybe it want. Maybe is my reaction because I’m scared of someone caring for me. #justbreathe #anxiety #crushing #tomyfutureguy
I will breathe.
I will think of solutions.
I will NOT let my worry control me.
I will NOT let my stress level break me anymore.
I will simply just breathe.
And it will all be okay!
Why? Because I don’t quit.

Those that are close to me know what’s up. But a lot don’t. And I’m finally at peace with most of it.
A little under 2 months ago I hit rock bottom. I got let go from the job that I moved up to St. Louis for. It was a slap in the face, I felt lower than dirt. And the main thing that kept running through my mind was “what am I going to do for Natalia?!” Panic, anxiety, and depression all hit at once and I just hit a dark place. I didn’t talk to many people, and I relied on alcohol to help me forget.
But that’s the thing, it’s not going to go away. It’s going to stay there until I DO something about it. Me, myself, no one else. Luckily, I landed a job that I’ve been at for the last 3 weeks and everything is starting to calm down in my head. And you know what? I really do like this new job!
Maybe it was the kick in the ass I needed to find something bigger, or better, or just something that makes me happier and more at peace. Sometimes shitty things happen and better things fall into place.
So if you’re going through some tough times... big OR small? Just BREATHE. Things happen for a reason, and it took me a bit to realize it 💙

So this happened! 🍅 What a day of #momlife
with my WILD CHILD, Mattie! MORNING: Floods half the kitchen with water 💦 playing with the faucet “helping” me do dishes (I seriously looked away for 2 seconds). Helps me clean up with lots and lots of towels. LUNCH: Post Swim 🏊♂️ class THIS.... Ketchup explosion all over his cute face in my car. 🤦🏼♀️ AFTERNOON: Pours sprinkles (like for ice cream 🍦) all over the Pantry. At this point, “Thinking Time” is necessary, so he is supposed to be sitting in a chair to think about how he’s not listening or behaving. However, I turn around and find that my son has turned into a BEAVER and is chewing on the chair and laughing as he chips off the wood. 🙍🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🙅🏼♀️All the while, every time I step away from Andy 👶🏻he looses his stuff. 💆🏼♀️THANK GOD LITERALLY for Aaron who let me go get a coffee and decompress tonight! 💆🏼♀️Sanity restored! Best Husband ever! 🙋🏻♂️#hubbyforever #boysmom #momlife #justbreathe #justlaugh #thesearethedays
Photo creds @coto.ely
I took about a ton of photos over the weekend of me and my girl all dressed up in fall gear because I started critiquing myself in almost every way 🤷🏻♀️
My face didn’t look right, hair was off, something was off about my legs...I was being too hard on myself.
I stopped the moment I noticed her great big smile and watched her sassy attitude come out while posing. She was having fun and thought she looked beautiful.
So I pushed all those negative thoughts out my head and enjoyed the moment with her. I started thinking of things that I worked hard to accomplish and it made my day much better.
It’s sooo easy to critique every flaw we see in ourselves but we can’t let that blind us from all the good qualities we have 😊
Early morning read and radiant rays ✨💫 - reading is something soothes the soul.
