The best apples,
are at the top of the tree.
They reach for the sky,
and are sometimes hard to see. •
When people go picking,
they're often bypassed.
As they go for what's "easy,"
Even fallen in the grass. •
The top apples wonder,
why they aren't desired.
When in fact, by so many,
they're the most admired. •
It's the risk of falling,
that turns people away.
But someone brave will be worth it,
and make the climb someday. •
You are amazing,
and soon enough you'll see.
Every girl is an apple,
in their own type of tree.

It's a sad fact that most people aren't happy. If asked why, each could give a hundred reasons, and everyone has some goal which they are certain would bring happiness once achieved. One fact missing from most people's hundred reasons for unhappiness is that they simply don't love themselves, and they don't love themselves because they don't know who they are. Often, they have been programmed to see their weaknesses, "flaws" which don't really exist. They have learned to compare themselves to others, and there is always someone better at something than they are. Even worse, most people don't know they don't know who they are. They may say they're unhappy because they don't know what they want to do with their lives, for example, but never take it a step further. How can they know what they want to do if they don't know who they are? How can they know who they are if they never take the time to get to know themselves? Most people's lives are filled with distractions from the moment they open their eyes in the morning until they close them again at night. They rarely spend time alone just being with themselves; not while doing something, just being with themselves. The moment an opportunity for solitude presents itself, they run from it, diving right into the next distraction. Ask most people who they are, and they'll tell you their name, job, marital status, parental status, hobbies; all the trivial details about their lives, and absolutely nothing about who they truly are. Because they don't know.
When you know who you really are, what an amazing, glorious spiritual being you are; what a living miracle your body is; what a fantastic blessing life is, you stop waiting for something or someone else to make you happy; you realize and become passionate about your purpose; you love yourself and all beings because you see the divine in everyone and everything, and you celebrate and honor it. Every moment of every day. When that becomes your constant state of being, you will never seek happiness again, because when you love yourself and all beings, joy becomes your faithful companion.
Live compassionately. Love always. 🙏🕉
its not who you are that holds you back its who you think you are not
We all have our flaws... but they don’t have to stop us from realizing our worth! You are amazing!
Not everyone sees our struggles. In fact very few see beneath the skin that the universe sees. In fact most people usually won't try to see your soul. Then sometimes we are afraid to let anyone inside to try to prove us wrong because we think we will get hurt again. It's a battle that internally a lot of us face. We try to be a good person even though sometimes we feel like we're being turn apart. We keep fighting and fighting. The past keeps gripping and digging it's nails into our heart. Others selfishness and egos over shadows our own triumphs. And we still continue to fight. Hoping and wishing for something faithful and the end of this broken road. Praying that eventually we find something that will make it all worth it. All while we sleep alone. Not just in our beds but also in our hearts and souls. Eventually we will find our true happy ending but most of us get so torn apart before we get there that we actually miss than ending. It's so easy to give up but eventually it's so much more worth it to fight and hold on.

I know it can be scary, but if you don't go for your dreams, then who will?
Peace, happiness, joy...it's an inside-out 'job'. Agree?
As our children venture further and further into the world outside they can do so knowing that home will always welcome them. Accept them as they are. Value their unique qualities. And, love them unconditionally.
That's the reason that parents are the most pivotal people in a child's life.
Love, acceptance and comfort.
Oh the possibilities
My dad built his own business during my childhood so I always grew up being encouraged to dream
To think big, that possibilities were endless, to be independent and to go after what I wanted in life
And I feel really blessed because of it
Because that’s engrained in me..that dreamer, that think big, possibilities are endless, nothing is too far out of reach
But I NEVER EVER and I mean NEVER EVER thought I would build my own business...I mean I’m a nurse, right?! I also had a ton of self limiting beliefs in myself..I’m shy, I don’t go on social media and don’t even have an Instagram account, I’m not good enough, I have no idea what I’m doing, I don’t have the perfect face or body, and the list goes on.. BUT..I’m a dreamer so I watched other people dream and achieve their dreams
And I fell in love with something..health.. And I watched other health coaches overcome any and everything from anxiety, depression, introvertedness (?), big financial debts, broken homes, etc etc..and they weren’t perfect
And I thought huh, if they could do it then I could too right?! So I took a leap of faith, I’m building a business..a business that shines light on our struggles, that picks one another up, that encourages, inspires, and empowers others to lead healthy lives through their imperfections in the way only they know how
And it’s freakin AMAZING!! 🤩🤩 If you want to dream big and know more about this coaching thang click here 👇🏻

LIES... We tell ourselves so many of them...And some of us believe them...”I’ll be happy when I’m thinner, when I buy my own house, when I have kids, when I get another job, when I own a new car like my neighbour, when I buy that handbag, when I exercise every day, when I’m a better mum, a more loving wife, a better friend...The list goes on and on and on 😩
We are all so overwhelmed with life and being better...The biggest lie is that I’ll start “tomorrow”... Let me tell you about my melt down on Friday..I mean the week had been amazingly good, team on fire, I was kicking goals at home, in the gym, in life...Then Friday I came home from the gym and actually cried to Greg...saying I’m no good at anything!!! I had started looking sideways at others, I started doubting my abilities, I was comparing myself to those perfect women on insta and Facebook...and BOOM I was stopped in my tracks!!! Comparison is totally the thief of joy! NO ONE is perfect and we have no idea what’s going on in someone else’s life⁉️ We are all striving...Striving to be better mums, wives, friends, christians, employees, managers, biz owners...What I am learning is just be better than yesterday, and live each day with a grateful heart because that is where real happiness lives ❤️ Let’s be kinder to ourselves, accepting of our flaws, (I have a long list) However pointing them out and focussing on them doesn’t make them go away...Try talking about what you love about yourself and the incredible parts of your day 🙏

Lord have mercy I have had a trying day today. Some not so nice things were said to me by someone close to us. Like, family close. But, we aren’t going to get into details on that.
I’m here guys because I want you to remember two things. Two very important things.
Number One- anybody who talks poorly to you, brings you down, or emotionally abuses you.. does NOT deserve you in their life. I don’t care if that’s family or friends, they DO NOT DESERVE YOU- IF THEY DESTROY YOU. Just because they are the loudest, does not mean you need to listen to them- EVER.
Number Two- you are HUMAN. You have every right to have a meltdown, to feel the hurt and pain. But don’t fester there. Don’t unpack your entire life and live there. Cry it out, and then refocus where you’re heading.
I know how hard it is, hearing negativity.. especially if it was about or directed towards you. But today, I want you to think of all that you are- instead of all that you’re not; or what others are trying to make you believe you aren’t.
You are worth SO much. Anybody who treats you different than all you are worth, does not deserve to be a part of your life.
You are worth finding. You are worth knowing. You are worth loving. You and all your one million layers, are worth it. So hold that close, and never let anybody destroy your greatness.
I want to give a shout out to those who were there for me- especially Devin. You’re the real MVP babe. 😘
Oh and also, to anybody who wants to throw salt on my name- you’re just seasoning my sauce. So THANK you. Thank you for helping me become a strong woman, who is absolutely worth it.
Until next time 💕😘

I. Made. It! I made the deadline. The email with “the secret sauce” is sent! Now it’s the waiting game. I am excited and exhausted. I’m happy and I’m crying. I’m proud and tiny bit terrified. I’m releasing it to the Universe with an immense feeling of gratitude. It happened and it’s happening! Let the magic begin! Eeeek!

♡♡ It's bedtime for me.. I'm giving in and admitting that I have a cold. That's both the Faithfull girlies down with colds =( Night Insta ♡♡
As an anniversary tradition, Shane and I started our day of fun at @loxandschmearto
with the epic delicious smoked salmon bagels.
I just love that they're just down the street, and they have an amazing gluten free bagel for their salmon nd cream cheese.
10/10 would recommend.
What a great start to our day!
I'll be posting photos from our day, but not as they're happening, because I really dont want to be on my phone the whole time.
Happy anniversary to me and Shane 💕

Selfies are not my thing, at all!
I've hated myself for so long and a selfie was not something "funny" to do. But we live in a time where we NEED photo of us on social, and we need to change it frequently. We need to keep up with the trend, with the new. But I've hated myself so now...now i'm left with the present. There are not a lot of photos of me from the past 15 years. Maybe the Christmas one and, as I said, I hate them. I don't have memories.
It's still hard to take a look at the camera and smile. I can't make sexy/posey faces and God knows how i want it. But it's ok. I was always the weirdo, the outsider, the different one.
And I love it now. That weirdness make me unique. So embrace yourself, and your phone, and take selfies, take photos, build memories, and keep it tracked.
Because time goes by faster than you think. Trust me, you're gonna miss those photos, the ones you've refused to take... At least you gonna make funny faces like I did. I'm still laughing😂

❤️ You are amazing ❤️
Whatever awaits you this week, know that you can handle it. To calm the mind and body: Light up Lumiora's Serenity soy candle and imagine walking in a lavender field, caressed by a breeze of gentle soothing scent. Take a deep breath... And remember, you are amazing ❤️
