Lemme tell ya a story, bout a girl on a mission. A girl who's mission was her own. There was no one going to do this for her. She was in control of the outcome.
Then there were these cookies. These delicious looking, sweet smelling, probably sugar filled cookies.
Then she thought... I could have just one. No one would ever know. No one would ever care. No one would even notice. But that girl would. She'd feel the guilt afterwards. She'd regret eating too many. She'd regret every part of it, but still couldn't stop.
Why?!?!?! Why do we self sabatoge?! Why do we resort to sneaking around to snack? Why can't we just say no?! Why do we refer to lack of control as being out of control? Why is there even a need for control?
As ya know I'm on the last two days of my cleanse. I've heard people call it a "diet" or a "fast" or some other fad name. Here's the thing... It's not ANY of that. It's not about lack of control. It's not about losing the weight. It was never about starving myself or any of those other ridiculous notions.
It was simply a conscious choice I made to heal my body from the inside out. To cleanse and purge my body of the bad habits I've been internalizing. It was a way to reset my body and start out 2019 feeling fresh.
No I don't feel deprived. No I'm not starving. Yes it is hard. Yes I want the treats and goodies. Yes I'm eating and trying different foods I've never tried before. No I probably will not touch a sweet potato for a long ass time... Even against all the treats and sweets and cheats... I FEEL good and THAT is 💯 what my goal was from day one.
You may not get it and you don't have to, but I've got a family that I want to be around for a long long time to pester the crap outta my boys when they bring home girls or go on dates or be that crazy mama cheering them on from the bleachers. I'm doing it for me, my health and my life.
It's exactly that. My life. My journey. I'd love for you to join me on this adventure. No strings attached. No judgements made. Just honest desire for more. What do ya say?
Why? Why do men feel it's appropriate to mesaage a woman and play 50 questions in order to try to make an Insta relationship? Guys this is not a dating site. This is a place to share happiness, inspiration and personal expression. If you think that every woman is going to fall for a pretty man in a uniform just stop. Stop making fake profiles. Stop sending videos in messages of your "wee Willy wankers" (one of my personal rants on FB) stop thinking every woman is that desperate, that naive, that in need of attention. We are not. You are embarising yourselves. #juststop #lies #deception #pretend #embarrassing #nothanks #girlpower
Don’t forget to stop today and look at your surroundings ✨
If you find joy in other people’s pain or being the cause of someone’s pain, you are hurting more than you are aware of...... Just stop.
This pumpkin spice obsession is getting a little ridiculous. #juststop
There is a lot of trauma in the world.. for me as a young woman, I have experienced the vulnerable and raw collective trauma of unsolicited attention and expectations imposed by men - especially in today’s current climate - who choose to interact with me in public and then the uncomfortable situation that follows of me having to emotionally reaffirm to myself over and over that I’m not just a body or a face, and that I’m not here for them even though rationally I understand that. My shield has been made thicker after an unsavory interaction at a restaurant on Sunday that made me feel energetically ambushed, angry, uncomfortable and reaffirmed my anxieties that come with doing things out by myself as a young women in public // ain’t nobody got time for rando-stranger men zapping peoples energy and emotional space because of their own selfish and toxic masculinity problems. I’m not flattered or impressed by your chauvinistic language, nor do I or will I feel bad for you. That shit is exhausting // last night I spent time with a group of women in circle and began to recharge what had been depleted so quickly... what stuck with me the most from Sunday’s yuck was that in that moment I did not feel secure or safe enough to tell him to stop talking to me and this happens a lot.. to so many of us - just trying to get through the interaction with the least amount of confrontation in the quickest way possible because it feels unsafe/uncomfortable. I’m working to channel a more fiercely firm response to men who think they can just say whatever they like, whenever, and expect you to oblige. And cultivating a fire inside myself that cannot be so easily snuffed.

Happy Birthday to me)) ребят, вы самая крутая команда и мне очень повезло, что я работаю с каждым из вас!!!! @volody
упомянул фразу «подводя итоги».. и я понимаю, что цифра 2 в начале возраста поменялась на 3 и действительно логично подвести какой-то итог: в свои 30 лет (мамочка!!!) я реально дорожу и люблю всех, с кем я сегодня увиделась или нет) жизнь - прекрасна!!! И она происходит благодаря тем, кто нас окружает!!! На минутку - #JustStop #DoNotMove #EnjoyTheMoment
What do you 【Ｖａｌｕｅ】? In a recent conversation, a young lady (who wants to purchase a home) was excited for tax season and proceeded to name the different designer labels she was going to treat her and her children to..so of course we had a conversation...🙃... People!!! Are these designers doing anything for you? Will they pay your bills, are they building a legacy for your children's children?.. ok you look good, post a pic... but now you're back to $0 and still in debt. Building wealth starts with making decisions that will outlive your first name and stretch into the lineage of your last name... that's true value... There is nothing wrong with treating yourself, but after you're out of debt, after you're car is repaired, after you get your credit score up, save for a down payment , prioritize. Now that's wisdom!! Land lasts, labels do not!!! We gotta do better...
I want you to grow!!! Ask me to connect you with a financial advisor, a credit specialist, or a mortgage lender... - -

You’ve heard of Elf on the Shelf, now get ready for…
Want to know what makes these "mom jeans" in my not really so important opinion?! First of all,I cracked up the instant I saw these. #fredflintstone
much? And then I laughed a little more because...what makes them mom jeans? The fact they're very unflattering? The fact that it looks like this "mom" has worn the same jeans for 15 years...and that's why there so short and tattered? Oh wait! I know...it's the highwaist?! #juststop
with the mom jean shit.
This is THE quote, especially these days. 👌 People think a lot of things, a lot of stupid things.. and a lot of that is silly selfcriticism too, the kind that you CANT EVEN SAY OUT LOUD cause its THAT STUPID. 💁We easily make our own conclusions too when in reality its far away from the actual truth.. Point being, Remember how fragile minds are & how crazy minds can be, I mean 7 billion different ones, some literally bat shit crazy.. so THIS ONES a very important note. 🙌 Felt like I need to share it. Its that important. ❤😐 THINK ALL YOU WANT BUT DONT BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU THINK. 💁 #quote #quoteoftheday #thought #note #juststop #think #thoughts #notes
Why does he look so intimidating 😬. He’s always flexing on those socs 😑#juststop
Bullying Is An Act Of Evil, That No One Should Ever Have To Experience. Whether You Do It In Person Or On The Internet. Those of You Who Spew Hate At People Should Take A Look At Oneself. There Is No Judgement Here @iamcardib

I agree 100%. Get over it liberals or who ever else that wants a gender neutral Santa. It’s also very sad how certain people just wanna try to mess things up that don’t need to be messed with. Get a life and focus on yourself not fictional things 🤷🏼♀️. #getalife #focusonyourself #leaveit #getoffyourhighhorse #juststop
