Truth...? I went to sleep yesterday, early for me, thinking I was going to kick today's butt. (It could still happen #wontHedoit 🙌🏼) But right now, I don't feel that way. I'm physically drained from the anxieties I experienced, this morning. I do not feel like I've had 7hrs of sleep. My daughter and I had a difficult morning. Having one reoccurring debate ALL MORNING 😩 Something I had already given my answer for the night before.
Parenting is hard sometimes.
I dropped her off...and worlds of guilt swept over me. ~Maybe I disciplined unfairly ~Maybe I could have given in to...ABC
~I should have hugged her tighter (Her Love Language is Touch) ~I'm such a mean Mom
~Were my words firm but clear or was I speaking in anger? ~Maybe...Should have...Could have...Would of...I could go on and my brain often does for me. But most of it isn't true...
The real truth is...
~I'm a great Mom and So are You!!! ~I will stand by my punishment, I wasn't unfair. ~I hugged my daughter before she went into school a 2nd or 3rd hug wasn't going to fix our Morning
~I'm not a mean mom lol That's just parenting and now that I'm calm I will laugh at my daughter for saying that ~My words started off firm and clear, then after repeating myself 6+x, they were less patient and more with a tone of anger. I will talk about it later with my daughter and apologize. No need to dwell now or beat myself up. I'm human. .
I hope any fellow Momma who's had a rough morning knows you aren't alone and it's ok.
I'm here in the trenches with you 🙋🏻 Sharing my bad days & good!!! I hope you all have a Great and Thankful day. .
Going home after vacation is always bittersweet, isn’t it?
I miss home. My bed. My routine. Most of all my BABIES 👧🏻👦🏻 (and hubby too but I won’t see him for another 2 1/2 weeks 😩).
But I’m also going to miss the WARMTH ☀️ the free food and fruity drinks 🍹 hanging with my coach friends 👯♀️ being pampered 💆 feeling special and having pics taken 📷 and quite frankly, the lifting of anxiety and stress 🌟
These trips always seem to come at the right time for me- just when I need life breathed into me. .
A reminder that what I’m doing matters and that I have every capability of achieving my dreams for myself, my family, and others like me.
I couldn’t do this alone. I wouldn’t WANT to do this alone. .
The support + trainings + recognition + all the other little extras, they’re everything to me!! ❤️

I’d love to hear your affirmations today!!! 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 what do you speak to yourself?
Ta - da!! 😁 A Morhers Day frame I forgot I made 😂 I really enjoy making these, it's like a puzzle to try and arrange the words so they fit across each other, and also so they look the best for the frame size 😊 Also what do you think of the wooden frame to match the tiles? 😁 I haven't got many left 😞 so please get in touch if you'd like one 🙂 Available from £15 🙂 +p&p if required 😙 ..... #scrabbleframe#scrabbletiles#scrabblewords

We all know FOMO - the Fear of Missing Out. But what about FOGS - Fear of Getting Started! My husband quoted Tony Robbins yesterday - something to the effect of - so many people ask why? Start asking why not!! So today is a great day to live large - take up all the space I am in - and get started! It’s time to show up and be consistent. Let’s see what this day brings just by getting started! Be brave. Step out. Get started
I've seen a lot of frustrated sellers lately over the changes Etsy has made lately.
And I totally get it. Change can be so tough. It can be hard to see the good in something new.
But change is inevitable. It's one of the only guarantees in life.
So the way I see it is we can roll with change or we can fight it. And fighting something we have no control over just leads to more frustration.
When change comes around try to make the best of it. Try to see the good in it.
What do you think of the recent changes Etsy has made with the abandoned cart feature and the finance updates?

What is your favorite part of the day? Mine is my #mornings 🌞🌓☕️ It’s my quiet time to plan my day, to check in with my business, to #dreambigger and to be grateful for being a #yesgirl 🙌🏼👏🏼 I used to wake early, r u s h to get ready, get my kids ready, and run out of the door like my hair was on fire to get to work. It had to be done and I’d do it again if I had to. I wanted to try something different. Something that let me use my super human momma powers to be a self starter.
Could you work from home? If it meant I could stop running 🏃🏻♀️ like a crazy person and stop feeling like I wasn’t present for my kids, my work, my responsibilities- then heck yes- I could and I DID!
You have to see the bigger picture. You have to put a plan in place. You have to say #YES to things that will drive you to your dreams. Otherwise, you’ll keep running in place until your motor stops.
Lose weight FAST!
Lose 5 inches off your waist in one night!
Get the body of your dreams in 1 month! 😖😖😖😖😖😖😖😖 The girl in the picture on the left would have clicked on those ads in a heartbeat! I would have done ANYTHING to lose weight FAST including pills, laxatives, and not eating.
Maybe you can lose weight fast. Maybe you can wrap away several inches. But those THINGS cannot give you lasting, healthy results. Those THINGS will never give you the body of your dreams.
What if instead we realized we all ready have the body of our dreams? We have been given a gift! We can MOVE. We can EXERCISE. We can treat our body with LOVE and feed it healthy food. What if we started taking care of our body because we love it instead of because we hate it? What if instead of looking for a quick fix we looked for a new way of life?
Choose to love yourself enough to invest in taking care of your body in a HEALTHY way.
And if your not sure where to start ask me how! 😚😚😚
The #highlightreel shown on social media is rarely the true picture of someone’s journey. ❤️
Know that, whether you are currently reaching for the peak or struggling to get out of a valley, each step is important to embrace in your journey. ❤️
It may not always be pretty. But it is yours.
Good morning! I found this chair back at a little junk shop in Arkansas two summers ago. I added the wreath from Magnolia Market and now it hangs in a small awkward wall space between two doors 🌿 I have other pieces like this I need to hang but indecisiveness keeps getting me!

Wow! What an adventure today’s hike was!! Definitely got my cardio in as I back carried Bethany about 2 miles round trip at Hawk Rock 💪🏻 The view was spectacular though and totally worth it - I even got a compliment on my calf muscles 😜😅 Bethany particularly enjoyed being fed by a friend and falling asleep while being carried.
On the way back down, a through hiker fell on a very rocky section of the trail as he passed us and dislocated his finger pretty badly but thank God one of the other Mama’s there was able to pull and snap it back into place!
All in all though, it was a great day for an adventure 🌄
