Are you happy?
Choose to be happy. Cheer yourself up by doing and experiencing things you truly enjoy. Do not rely on external factors to decide if you’re going to have a good day or not. You’re in charge 👊🏼☀️

I’m going to die. Someday, it’s inevitable and there’s no way around it, but I refuse to wait until that day to lie on my death bed wishing I’d done the things I’d dreamed of. Regretting that I never lost the weight, never got to travel, never was strong enough to run with my son. I will go into the other world knowing I’d lived my life to its fullest and I know this is deep for a Monday, but I urge you to begin today. Don’t wait any longer and stop making excuses. It’s not genetics, it’s not your gender, it’s not time, money or support... It’s YOU! You are the commander of your battle and it’s up to you to win! With all my love~Kat💞
There have been some new followers over here so I wanted to introduce myself and let you know more about me!
The ones in this picture are my world, my reason and my motivation. I married Shaun in 2013 and we had our first son, Jamison the next year! He is a mini Shaun. We then had Ellie Joy in 2017 and have had so much fun watching these two grow together!
My mom told me that all I wanted to be when “I grew up” was a mom like her. 💕 I went to college and barely graduated but finally found something I enjoyed. Fashion merchandising. When I graduated in 2010 the job market was terrible! I landed a job in optical sales which was not ideal but I was determined to make it work! I ended up being able to use my creativity to help make glasses more appealing to those getting eye exams. 7 years later I decided it was time to be at home with our two littles.
I tried to find the perfect situation for our family but could never find what I needed. Until now! I will be talking more about this in a live video today.
In the mean time I want to encourage you with this. You are in charge of your own life. Don’t ever do things that you don’t 100% agree with just to please others. I have been guilty of this my whole life. I have tried to always make others happy but it ended up hurting me! So do you and love your life!
Life can get so hectic, so much that we forget to look after ourselves. This is what I sometimes do to ‘reward’ myself’. Trust me, I’m not saying give up drinking or enjoying yourself with certain foods... I’m not!! Haha... but give yourself a break. We get run down, we get tired, constantly hustling to get everything done... working, running a business, parenting, studying, exercising, wifing and husbanding, socialising (what even is that?) and general day to day ‘stuff’. You want to know how to handle it all and really start to hustle??.. LOOK AFTER YOURSELF! Simple right? Those of you who know me know that I get all of this, but you may not have seen my darkness, challenges and weaknesses. I couldn’t do it anymore, I constantly found myself saying “I just want to feel good, happy & strong again”. I got so run down for so long. My amazing neighbour introduced me to this amazing programme called 30 Days to Better Living though Arbonne. I started with a 10 day programme as it scared the hell out of me Hahahaha.... but WOW, the changes I felt where so significant that just a few weeks later, I am now 1 week into my 30 days and want to share this. I love helping people, it’s my thing. Feeling my full potential is going to help me be a better version of me & help my business Skylah Park hit next level. So if being the best version of yourself sounds good, I can help you with all of the support, products, expert knowledge and recipes to get you through it. Hit me up 🍃 .

Do you feel good? Could you feel better? If you are challenged to put yourself first then reach out and I will be your health coach and introduce you to the home workouts that I have easily incorporated into my busy mom doctor life! I’m happier than I’ve been knowing I am doing my best effort. Nutrition is of course a major component of being healthy and I am pretty good but honestly not the best like my nutrition colleagues! I love following IG gurus like @skinnytaste
that share recipes and options. I cheat and drink a healthy shake daily and take supplements to fill in my nutritional needs. I’m a work in progress but I am making headway. **
Ready to feel amazing? Join my next get healthy group starting in a few weeks. I’m upbeat and a little 😉 goofy but hey, it’s fun to not be so serious! That’s just not my style! Respond below with a 🙋♀️or 🙋🏽♂️and I’ll give you more details. And see my IG stories for my workout inspirational videos.
Gratitude is the doorway to ALL your desires.... 🌈🌈
What are you grateful for RIGHT NOW?
What’s working in your life?
What are you enjoying?
Our minds tend to flow to what’s NOT working.. what needs fixing... what we don’t have ...
And it can sure leas us down a rabbit hole to depression...
If we don’t take the reigns... YOU are in charge. You are in the driver seat. You decide what you feel. You decide where you go.
The moment you REALIZE it... EVERYTHING changes 💥
As I remind you of this... I remind myself.
Thank you for being part of my journey 💫🙏💕 #abrahamhicks #happynow #inthemoment #instainspo #feelgoodnow #joyoflife #youareincharge #icanperiod
This is your Friday morning reminder that your mind sometimes lies... Crazy how often we get our own selves down and become our our worst critics.
Have you ever sat down and wonder if the "happy" people you see around are actually always that happy?? I have. I actually did it daily for so long because for a while there I was stuck in the not so happy with my life for no reason train. But true life, no one likes a negative Nancy and sad Sally around.
I now sit here with a new outlook and so happy with my life, embracing the good and the bad, because I have found that you need to train your mind to see the good in everything and everyone. Yes, it's hard at first but it does become easier as you do it daily. Positivity is a choice. The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.

We live in a world where it is socially acceptable to do nothing. You can come home from work, not have to cook, and binge watch your favorite shows. No one will say anything.
It’s acceptable to complain about your job, your marriage, etc.
But when someone comes along who loves their job, or maybe doesn’t but is pursuing other business opportunities. Society says you are crazy!
But let me tell you something...the crazy ones? They are the happy ones. They are the people you should be surrounding yourself with.
So, pay attention, be aware of your circle, be cautious with who you share your life with. And whatever you do - DO NOT let anyone tell you how to live your life. You want more? Go get it.

What if I told you
There is no there.
No one is coming to save you.
We, you and I, are responsible for what happens to us, where we end up, and how we feel about it. .
I decide if I am happy now, in this moment, rather than waiting until
“I get there”
To be happy. .
I decide to make the change to get me on track towards my best life
Rather than waiting for someone to go first
Or do it for me. .
There really is no THERE.
Stop waiting to get there to be happy. Be happy now. .
No one I going to save you.
You don’t need saving.
You are a WARRIOR
YOU own your life and your path
Act like it. .

This is tough to share, and I’m really private about this stuff but maybe it will help someone else. 🧡
Today started off so rough. Woke up with the same headache I went to bed with, my ears hurts, I’m exhausted. I remembered I didn’t pack Audi’s lunch. Didn’t even bring her back pack in from the car. Ugh.
THEN all I hear, all morning is fighting. I take a time out and breathe. Three rounds of time out for everyone and still fighting. I lose it.
Forget it, Audi needs to get to school.
Get back, I’m feeling awful for how rough the morning was.
Emmy is fighting and being sassy with me, but I gotta go to an appointment and I need to try to eat. Oh lord, I dropped everything, bumped my head, forgot my keys, dropped my bagel, it was all going wrong. I literally gave up on the entire day right there. The whole day sucks, screw it. There is NO coming back. And I’m late to my appointment. Fabulous. FML. 🤬
But guess what that appointment was, therapy. And in no way was a ready for it today. I didn’t want to be there. BUT Emmy sat nice, and I got to go over the day so far. By the time I walked out, I needed coffee, but my mindset changed somehow. I can’t just throw away a whole day because the morning sucked. I didn’t want to be angry the whole day.
I got coffee, got my errands done, and target always helps you know. 💁🏻♀️
Ems past out in the car, win. Worked on blog and shirt stuff. Got audi and killed homework time. I was calm, made it fun, and gave her a new toy to help with letters. She had a blast. 💜
Knocked out dinner time, and bed time. Boom 💥 day done.
Man, if I would have thrown the day away in the morning I would have missed out on all of it and I would have went to bed HATING myself.
I reflected on the day, I took time to get my mind right, and I decided I’m in charge. I really can change the day.
Now I can to bed knowing I killed it as a mom today, and that’s literally the only thing I want in the world. 🎉

Who’s holding your pen? 🖊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you need more paper? Does it look like scribble?
Do you feel like you’re going in circles? Or spiraling out of control?
Focus on the simple things, easy to achieve. Often we are overwhelmed when things get difficult because we’re not taught to be resourceful or learn.
Sometimes it’s about having that old fashioned grit about you and toughing it out whether it sucks or not, it’s often the thing you need to do. (And yes it’s often not pretty)

For the last couple of days I’ve allowed a situation beyond my control to take over all of my emotions, in such a negative way that today I actually truly wanted to scream. I was genuinely doing my very best to cope but everywhere I turned, I was reminded of it and it felt like I couldn’t escape. Guess what- all it took was me literally stepping away from it by logging off. We often get so overwhelmed with the insane never ending feed of information, posts, pictures, comments, blah blah blah because it’s right here, always, in your face- we forget that taking a mental health day away from it all is oh sooooo necessary. You are the spiral- so how fast and deep you go is up to you. Walk away. Log off. Be quiet. Do something different. Don’t forget to breathe.

Paths are not meant to be one direction. Paths lead to many outlets. If you can change the course of your path, you will find choices lined up and ready for your next move.
Stress can kill our vibe and eliminate the awareness of knowing we are the creator of our life. Make the choice that is best for you and your health. I talk about the importance of setting intentions and how this opens the door for more positive choices and change. Give it a read, https://acornhealthandwellness.com/blog/f/to-stress-or-not-to-stress-the-choice-is-yours.

This is some real talk.
If you start doubting yourself the success will never happen.
If you start making excuses for yourself the success will never happen.
Your goals will be crushed by the doubt you're living in.
You need to live for now, You need to push your boundaries. Stop making fucking excuses!
You are in charge of you & only you.
What the fuck are you waiting for?
