"It's unusual it's frightening
You see right through the mess in me
And you call me out to pull me in
You tell me I can start again
And I don't need to keep on hiding."
IM FULLY KNOWN AND LOVED BY YOU!!! .
Y'all, the truth and undeniable grace in these words honestly leave me speechless. We live in a world that WAY tooo often highlights every imperfection, every scar and every fear to the point of feeling inadequate at every step we take. Building walls and wearing masks seem much easier than the thought of someone truly knowing us and our deepest thoughts fears and failures.
Ya'll, Jesus Christ STILL loves me, and YOU. I am Fully known: EVERY insecurity, every tear, every fear, and every single scar.... He knows me...every mistake and wrong turn...HE KNOWS ME... He knows my mess and Praise God🙌🙌
He pulls me out, draws me in and calls me His!!! Don't go through this life building walls and believing no one could ever love you and the mess you're in. Oh, PLEASE ask me about my Lord and Savior. No matter what you do or what you have done, He calls you out, and pursues you with a love like no other!

My aunt and uncle are seriously the cutest! 😍 16 years married but together much longer. A wonderful home, 4 amazing sons, a cat (with kittens) and a pretty awesome doggy to call theirs 🐕 I miss you all every day 💕 @b.colosie
Serenity like no other. A place that not need be seen to capture your heart and live in there forever. A place were the heart yearns to be and aches to be away from.
So tomorrow is the official end of my maternity leave. I left work in the first week of January, it was longest time in between finishing work and Monroe arriving, but my has time flown since she has been here earth side. I surprisingly don’t feel sad or anxious about my full time return, I feel it will be good for us, despite this mama about to battle with sleep for the forseable months (I work nights). When did you return to work after maternity leave? 💕

GOOD MORNING LOVELY PEOPLE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀we are back. Sorry we took some time off, this screen time app on the iPhones made us think about all the time we are spending on our phones. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀with that being said, today looks like a pretty good day to go out and do something out of the norm. @oliviadbuck
went for lunch on her own yesterday. She wouldn’t have done that if she didn’t have a lot of courage and a little bit of fear. The feeling you get when you do something you haven’t done before, really does outweigh any other feeling. The overwhelming feeling once you’ve achieved something is amazing. You feel so proud of yourself and so you should. You should be proud of the things you do, not just other people. You own you! So go out and do it. 💪🏼💪🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#spreadlove #spreadit #spreadlovelikemarmite #inhaleexhale #courage #fear #love #selflove #gogetemtiger
APPRECIATION POST 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Phillip & Holly are on the tele at the moment, we always watch this morning in the background during our morning mess around. But today they did a phone in addressing some mental health phone calls. A lovely young lady called in after not knowing how to speak to her sister in regards to her mother’s suicide 2 years ago. After telling her story, Phillip asked how her sister is.. she replied ‘I’m not sure’ instead of picking up on this straight away, Phillip went on to ask ‘how are you today’.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Phillip, this was amazing. This girl selflessly rung in about her concerns for her sister and Phillip made sure she was okay too. I guarantee she wasn’t expecting them to even consider her feelings and she just wanted to talk about her sister but she is hurting too. And he recognised this. I love it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀go and make sure someone is okay. It’s usually the strongest people who are probably not actually okay. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#spreadlove #spreadit #spreadlovelikemarmite #gratefulforpeoplelikephil
YOU GOT UP TODAY! WELL DONE! 🎉🎊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀it makes us sad that people don’t want to get up, it makes us sad that sometimes people can’t find the strength to get up. Horrendously sad. We need this to change. We love you and we want you to get up and face the day. Let’s do this together. 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#spreadlove #spreadit #spreadlovelikemarmite #welldone #itsokay #positivity #mentalhealthawareness
DO NOT, do you hear me, do not compare yourself to anyone! You are amazing, just you! It will always look rosier in someone else’s world because they only let you see the good. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ People are not honest enough when they are having a bad time, and that’s what we are here for. We want to change this, we want people to let someone know they are having a bad day, they aren’t having a good time and to ask for help. We are here. Somebody is here. Just talk. 🦀🐠🧜🏽♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#spreadlove #spreadit #spreadlovelikemarmite #littlemermaid #lovedisney

Grief really has wonderful ways of showing itself. Grieve how you want to and just remember the times you felt so loved and loved that person. You will never ever forget that love. 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#spreadlove #spreadit #spreadlovelikemarmite #grief #loved
It is okay. Take this how you want, whether you are grieving the lose of a loved one, a relationship, a friendship. Anyone you have lost. It really is okay! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀🖤 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#spreadlove #spreadit #spreadlovelikemarmite #griefisokay
Everybody has bad days. You just have to know that tomorrow is a new day. Don’t let what happened today, make tomorrow a bad day before it’s begun! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I expect to see you tomorrow with a smile 💛 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#spreadlove #spreadit #spreadlovelikemarmite #dontletbaddaysgetyoudown
Do something you have been thinking of doing for a while today. If you’re still thinking about it, your mind wants you to do it! Or even just take that first step towards achieving that thing you really want to do! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀go on. It will be worth it. We promise. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#spreadlove #spreadit #spreadlovelikemarmite #dosomethingamazing
This one is for the mummy tribe. Your body is doing (if you’re pregnant)/has done (if you’ve recently given birth)/did (if you’re babies are all grown up) the most amazing thing. You made a baby! You! Have grown a child! A small piece of 2 people has combined to make the most amazing human you can possibly make. Now that is incredible! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀but you then forget; it took 9 months for that to happen. Let your body heal, let it repair, let it tell you when it’s ready and then ever so slowly, you get back to what you find comfortable. It may not be the same as before, actually your body will not return to the same as before. You have just been the home to a baby for 9 months! Love your body for that! But first of all, accept your body for what it is now, because it is amazing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ it would also help if you stop comparing yourself to every other mum you follow, every single body is different, is your body the same? No! So why should you and your body be? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#spreadlove #spreadit #bodylove #bodyacceptance
You are a million times better than even doubting yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀do us a favour, go and look at yourself in the mirror, pick something you love about yourself and focus on that! Then try again a little bit later and find something else you love and keep going. Until you realise that the one thing you have decided you don’t like, becomes so irrelevant, you start to love it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#spreadlove #spreadit #selflove #selfworth #loveme
We can get so distracted and lost in our own lives that thinking about other people at one given moment really doesn’t cross our minds. We have all been victim of this. ‘Oh this queue for my skinny latte with a double shot, not too hot, is soo long and I’m going to be late for work!’ or ‘the person in front of me is not driving at the speed I want them to be going but they won’t move out of the way’. We are always so bothered by these things. It’s the end of the world as we know it! Because it is not benefiting you.
But why don’t you stop for a second and think, this person is doing the best they can at this given moment and they are doing that well. So for this, they deserve a compliment. Compliment the person behind the counters smile, it may make them smile just a little bit more today. Tell the person in the queue in front of you, how much you like their scarf/jacket/shoes, they might have been doubting their choices this morning. Let the busy waitress know how lovely her perfume is every time she runs by you with yet another plate of food. She might need it. Tell your friend how lovely they look. They could be feeling their worst today but really looking their best to you. A person might just need a little boost, you really really don’t know what they are thinking so giving them a little positive note, it may just do them the world of good. I had this yesterday and it really does make you feel a million times better. On a bit of a low note to end (for the good), unfortunately the whole planet does no revolve around just you my darling, let someone else know that the world loves them just as much as it loves you.

We focus so much of our time on social media. Studies have shown teens can spend up to 9 hours a day on their social media. Now that is a lot. Another study shows the average person spends 2 hours a day - which in a life time equates to 5 years and 4 months. 5 years on social media.. wow! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now that we know some facts. That is worrying, social media is a scary place, as much as we want to believe in the fairy tales, sometimes the person behind that amazing picture, the person in front of that amazing waterfall, the happy couple kissing, is not all they are making themselves out to be. It could of taken 50 photos to get the right angle, the person with the waterfall may have fallen over getting up there and the reason they are out of focus is because they are in tears, the couple could have been arguing the night before that photo. We don’t know. But we do know that we want people to be more honest and open about their feelings. We want people to open up and take the natural, no make up this is me photos. Or the candid happiness moments. Or take no photos at all and just be completely in that moment. The moments that you cannot put in to words. Put your phones down and enjoy life. Please. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#spreadlove #spreadit #love #positivity #socialmediascaresus
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So this is a new initiative about spreading love. Negativity overpowers positivity sometimes and we would like to bring some positive vibes back to peoples lives. It is okay to not be okay, but when you need to pull yourself out of that, we are here for those moments. We will be positing positive quotes, little pick me ups, messages, pictures and all things to bring a smile to your face when, you might not realise, you need it the most. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So enjoy, look out for up and coming stories, we will be starting with weekly trains, little challenges and pass me on stories for everyone to get involved with and spread some love.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
