I bought this dress six years ago. It still had the tags on it last night when I pulled it out to wear on our wintry date night. I’m proud as hell that it still fits after two kids and six years, but honestly...it took me about four attempts to post this picture. It felt weird to talk about being proud of my body without apologizing for the vanity of such a post. I brag on my wonderful husband, my beautiful children, our beautiful home and my incredible life, but for some reason it felt weird to show this picture and celebrate the love and attention I give my health and my fitness. So IMMA TAKE 5 seconds and hit share and not apologize for being proud. Here’s to not second guessing your right to JUST be proud.
We all know how hard it is to let go of what other's think of us. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Recently an electric s'mores maker showed up at my door.**An electric s'mores maker** that I did not order. Who even knew they existed? Not a delivery box. The actual box of the s'mores maker, unopened, with said s'mores maker inside.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's presence is a true mystery. Where did it come from? Why is it at my door? Did it fall off a UPS truck? A sign of some sort? And stranger yet, I still haven't located the owners weeks later.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I first "found" it, I wanted to rip it open and fire it up right there and then. I thought how fun my son would think it is to roast marshmallows right on our countertop. But something inside me said, "this does not belong to me."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then I knew the s'mores maker *was* a sign---my reminder to let that sh$t go: what other people think of me is *none* of my business. One of my favorite mottos: THIS DOES NOT BELONG TO ME. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This motto has helped me find the freedom to just be me, allowed me to release the weight of imagined judgment and expectations, to own my imperfection, and to lean into action and vulnerability.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So the s'mores maker sits, unopened, in my office. Thank you so much to whomever or whatever brought that beautiful reminder to my front door. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What other people think of you? It does not belong to you. This s'mores maker, on the other hand??? ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. The s'mores maker also reminded me how much I love marshmallows. 😂💗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is the day I light that bridge on fire!
I am stronger than I have ever been and I am ready to shake of the heavy weight of others opinions. I will not wait to be "forgiven" by those that deem me unworthy or less than them. I will protect those that I love and fiercely love them.
Don't like me, get to stepping, because those who love me are the people that matter.
My dad always said, “Don’t worry if others speak negatively about you. Just live your life in a way others won’t believe them.”
And from the words of another wise man, Dr. Wayne Dyer, “What others think of me is none of my business”. I love that thought.
We can’t control what people think of us, so why worry about it? We’ve all made mistakes. The point is to learn and grow from them. If others want to judge you for your past, let them. You know if your heart who you are and the people who matter will love you for the real you anyways.
Life is overwhelming. In a great way & sometimes in a not so good way. We have good days, bad days, days that bring joy, and some days bring sadness. But you know what, it's ok.
With a to-do list miles long & feeling like there aren't enough hours in the day, I think it's fair to say our lives our busier than ever.
While my household was sleeping and I was up way too early thinking about all I had to do today, I saw this post. And for some reason I felt it was screenshot worthy. I wanted to share it to remind myself & who ever may need it that self care is important. Love yourself today & every day ❤

I FUCKING ROCK. (Please do not judge people by F-word it's telling that I'm an honest human and I own my feelings and expressions to say it freely.)
The only judgement I concern is the judgement by myself judging me. My behaviour about what I am doing and talking negatively to myself.
This one thing I do really really well is I don't give a meaning to what others think of me. I am 100% always myself no matter how people treat me bad or think bad it doesn't matter it doesn't change my behaviour how I treat people with a kindness respect treating them as a human being.
A poet said if you ever get the chance to treat them the way they treated you I hope you choose to walk away and do better.
This made me think. The reason to walk away. Is that really demonstrating doing better though? What is do better really mean? What made you tolerate if you've been treated poorly in the first place?
Setting a boundary is important when you notice if people treat you poorly don't need to revenge or tick for tack in life. .
Respect yourself and respect the others.
Choose to be you, a good person. If you believe you're a good person. No matter how bad people treat you, you can still treat them with kindness love and respect them as a human being.
You are awesome. You are kind. You love people. Then just be you. Don't change yourself just because people treat you poorly. Be ultimate yourself.
Do not treat people by how bad they are but how good you are. I think Mother Teresa said this.
The truth is you will treat people with what is inside of you. It's an egocentric excuse that I will treat them badly too because that's how they treated me. It's coming from the Ego. Ego needs to get even 50:50 be fair mindset. That's why we have this kind of thinking. Tame your Ego and choose to be a better person.

Happy National Coming Out Day! Being born and raised in the deep South, I know what it is like to struggle with acceptance. I celebrate all who have had the courage, and I support all who are struggling. Dear young people: Surround yourself with those who love and support YOU and you will have a lifetime of laughter and freedom! And don’t let anyone tell you that just because you don’t live your life the way they think you should, that you can’t have everything you want... and more! xoxo 🏳️🌈 #nationalcomingoutday #whatothersthinkofyouisnoneofyourbusiness

True story. What other people think of you is non of your business.
I don’t care about what others think about me, because...
I don’t do this shit for anyone else.
I don’t care what other people do.
I just want to do what I love doing.
I am only looking for a better version of me, the best for my family and give people who support me some motivation.
YES! Shine on, gorgeous one! ❤️ 😍

Knight of Staffs (Wands), 5 of Swords, Waxing Gibbous 55%. Reiki Intuitive Tarot Reading-- 9-17-18
Sooooo you've been busy working hard in pursuit of an idea or adventure? Discouraging prospects and anyone who has tried to reel you into projects have left you throwing your hands up, perhaps thinking about throwing in the towel. Knight of Staffs predicts hope and much light at the end of the tunnel. This card represents commitment, courage, energy, no fear, confidence and an increased ability to tackle challenges. A very strong Fire, perhaps Aries type energy surrounds this new onslaught of inspiration and opportunity. Please pay attention and make sure this is what you want as this can be an 'act first think later' type of adventure. 5 of Swords shows conflict, tension, self inflicted isolation, and also losing friends that aren't on the same page as you. It's okay to flake off the old and negative to make room for the positive and new energies. This is what you've asked for. You may even experience some backlash, betrayal, or a sneak attack from someone you've trusted in the last few months and it will become obvious that they've been working behind the scenes in attempt to sabotage you. Their own karma will backfire to show the world, perhaps even publicly on social media as they fail miserably and will appear unfaithful, jealous and unstable. Be extremely careful in whom you trust and confide in during this time of transition. It may be best to lay down your arms and walk away. You're second guessing each decision and move so take your time. Be aware, as not everyone you think has your best interest in mind. Don't be afraid to back peddle a little and ask for help from someone solid.

There was a time I would have skipped the morning walk for lots of reasons🤷♀️, especially yesterday because it was raining cats and dogs outside and my socks would be soaked if I did! But you know what they are just excuses…. Lies I allowed myself to believe. 🤦♀️
I’ve really been working on shifting my mindset 💆♀️ and knowing that I am worth it and so I’m committed to getting some form of movement at least 6 days a week. 🙅🏼♀️
Recently I started walking in town 🏃🏼♀️instead of on the treadmill at home….in the basement….where no one can see me. 👁 I’m so over letting other people’s opinion define me. So even when it’s raining🌧….. Scratch that…. ESPECIALLY when it’s raining ☔️
I’m going to get out there and do me, because I am worth it and sister, so are you! 👊
To say I am thankful is an understatement. 🙏🏻Thankful that I said yes to a line of natural products that have completely changed my belief in myself, my self worth, and my families health and time freedom. Find the courage and decide that you are going to take the time to work on yourself. You owe that to yourself! 🙌🏻
