"It is perfectly acceptable to ignore the fact that other people have the wrong impression of you. Because, with few exceptions, what other people think about you will have absolutely no impact on your life unless you choose to let it." – #ZeroDean @zerodean.official
Everyday, whether you leave your home or not, you will have someone that is trying to take your happiness. It can be anything and come from anywhere - you name it. Someone out there will think that they know better, or are just really unhappy, so they want to make you unhappy. It helps to understand that it’s really not about you at all.
It is also important to find something in your life that makes you happy that no one else can take away from you. It doesn’t matter what it is, within reason, but you’ve got to do it and maintain it on a regular basis to keep your mind clear. I always say that I’ve got no problem functioning and being nice when I leave my house. I can be nice because I’m in someone else’s world. But, when I go into my garage, or get on my bike, it’s an entirely different story.
Find your inner happiness.

Our lives are defined by our relationships.
Some bring us overwhelming joy, sublime support and deep connection.
If only every relationship could be so easy.
Unfortunately, we spend too much of our energy obsessing and ruminating over our challenging relationships - the ones that leave us feeling ashamed, broken, guilty, unappreciated or unworthy.
We focus on how these relationships are lacking, how they should be different, and how we can fix them.
Albert Einstein reminded us that "we cannot solve our problems with the same thinking that we used when we created them."
Things motherhood has taught me:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🖲 Kids know how to push every button you have, then when you think you're going to snap they give you a big hug and "I love you mom!" Followed by a sticky kiss on the cheek.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👀 They are always watching you. (ex/ When I told Miss B to stay out of the bathroom while a guest was in there her response was "I just want to watch her.")⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👂 They can't hear you calling then to clean their room, but the can hear the cookie jar being opened from the other side of the state.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🚽 All jokes must contain something to do with poop. If not they will quickly modify it to include the word poop. (Knock knock. Who's there? Cow. Cow who? Cow pooped on your head!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🙊 Phrases I never thought I would have to say have been coming out of my mouth. (Don't pee on your brother!)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But seriously motherhood has taught me a lot. Mostly a lot about me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☮ I have learned to have greater patience. That I need to act, not react.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌹 I need to literally slow down and smell the roses. And check out the cool rocks. And watch the cool semi driving past us.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💗 How with each addition to the family my love grows more and more. When I don't think I can feel more love, it grows with each new baby.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👀 Because they are always watching I am learning I NEED to be a much better example. In all areas of my life.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💕 I need to give myself grace. To forgive myself of mistakes as quickly as I forgive my children.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am excited to see what other lessons these kids have in store for me over the years. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s all about setting goals, planning and executing them daily!! At 16 my goal was to buy a Honda So I saved for a year not buying anything unless I really had to and after a year had $5,000 cash, went to auction cause I wanted a DEAL and bought a 1983 Honda Accord.
The lesson is, set a goal no matter how small or big but one that you can achieve and a plan you can stick to!! Building your mindset with patient, discipline with each achievement!

The lesson from the beyond today is regarding @donmiguelruiz
book The Four Agreements. I’m stuck on the second agreement: Don’t Take Anything Personally. Maybe you can relate.
Here’s my outtake.
This is me. It is VERY personal. Trying to BE ME and not take BEING ME personally. I’ll let you know how it goes. ⚡️
from failure to failure, wanting to be patient and constantly trying is the key to everything to achieve the success you've always dreamed of.
Moms was a teacher, Always.
I still remember the conversation we had about kids.
Moms, You telling me that kids here were luxuries. People dressed them up and parade them around. I remember my tears when you told me that where you and my dad were from, that’s not what kids were for. It was working in the fields at age 5. No cuteness about it. No access to education, barely any food, and having to get up at 4am to work the fields. I remember you telling me, “here you’re in heaven but you just don’t know it”. No one is coming to save you! You have to save yourself. #mytears #hard #teacher #lifelessons #respect #thestruggleisreal #alwaystherealest #alwayswithme #toughasnails
Another beautiful day and it’s time to get to the day! 💛⬆️🏔⬆️💛
Put yourself back in pictures. Put yourself back on your calendar. Make the list. Achieve the goal. Do the thing. Take the class. Book the appointment. Make the change. Say that thing you need to say. Speak your messy, unvarnished, unInstagrammable truth. Try something new. Take back your one precious life.
Stop giving away your power to him, to her, to it, to whatever that thing is. Love yourself first. Fill your own damn cup. You are the water. You have the answer. You are the answer. It’s you. It’s always you. The power is yours to take back. Today is a great day to start. Pick the thing. Begin. You are not alone. Just in case you need the reminder.
