✨ Why do we, as women, make relationships so hard, especially friendships? ✨ You may not fall into this, so scroll by if this doesn’t apply. ✨ Society makes us competitive. It feeds us lies and we believe them. We believe that we must stay in competition with one another or we won’t get to where we want to go. ✨ Have I believed that over the years?Yep. There were times I absolutely felt there wasn’t room for us all. I’m being honest and I hope you are too. ✨ Do you know how you change that mindset? You work on YOU. You get to a place of self-awareness and self-reflection. ✨ Most often, actually all the time, when we feel like she’s more than me, we don’t value or see ourselves in the image of how God made us. It’s so much more about YOU than her. ✨ Do you realize you are the only YOU walking the earth right now? I’m the only ME...so how dare I compare me to anyone else? You are His work and His work is breathtaking, always. ✨ I am a natural encourager but there have been times where I couldn’t encourage because I let jealousy, envy or unhealthy competition get in the way. I believe you have too at times in your life. ✨ It wasn’t until I began to seriously look at myself and see my own worth that my heart changed from the inside out. ✨ You know what feels really good? Cheering for you, seeing you go for it and watching your confidence soar. ✨ And here’s what I have learned...it takes NOTHING away from me but adds SO much warmth to my heart. ✨ When you work on yourself and truly begin to believe that YOU are beautifully made, YOUR.LIFE.WILL.CHANGE. ✨ My, sometimes, naive brain, thinks that this may be the way to change the world but we have to show up and work on ourselves in order to do that. ✨ It’s HARD but it’s the most rewarding if your sights are set on a fulfilled life. ✨ And know this as you walk through...your cheering ways won’t always be received as genuine or reciprocated. That’s okay. It feels too good not to live this way. You will carry on as you continue to learn to love all...even the hard ones. Even with a boundary. ✨ With my megaphone, I say “Go, friend, go!!!” ✨ Today, grab her hand and let’s help each other cross the finish line. ✨

It wasn’t until I began to seriously look at myself and see my own worth that my heart changed from the inside out.
✨
You know what feels really good? Cheering for you, seeing you go for it and watching your confidence soar.

When you work on yourself and truly begin to believe that YOU are beautifully made, YOUR.LIFE.WILL.CHANGE.

My, sometimes, naive brain, thinks that this may be the way to change the world but we have to show up and work on ourselves in order to do that.

✨ Oh this one hits me in the gut. I still struggle with “If I’m not busy then I’m not worthy or valuable.” ✨ I still work on this one. A “crow barred” day doesn’t mean a productive day. ✨ You can have a day that isn’t filled to the tippy top and still be moving and doing life that best suits you. ✨ You can still achieve goals while actually sleeping 8 hours a night. ✨ You can still be a good Mom even when you don’t make every class event or game. ✨ You can still be a loving wife, supportive friend, wonderful daughter too. ✨ I used to think I had to do alllllll the “things” to be a good anything. Why the hell did I think that? ✨ Because society tells us if we aren’t stressed out, busy bees, running around like a chicken without a head, then we aren’t “hustling” to make life happen. ✨ Life happens when you plan it out.When you decide everyday what is most important and then work on that. ✨ I write down 3 things that I want to accomplish every morning. Then I plan out how I’ll get them done. At the end of the day, I feel productive, accomplished and satisfied with what I did that day and what value I added to my goal bank. Some days the 3 things are big things and some days it’s “getting the kitchen cleaned by 10am.” Everyday doesn’t have to be a heavy hitter day, just move forward in doing something. ✨ Remember, busy doesn’t necessarily mean productive and productive is relative. ✨ What she does is great for her. What you do is great for you. Keep that in mind and leave a spot in your sched today to actually enjoy living this life, YOUR life. ✨ That busy badge might look “super woman, hero-ish” on your blouse today but it doesn’t mean anything if you aren’t happy. I say this because I lived it and know this feeling, BIG time. It’s taken me a lot to start to realize the lie I believed. ✨ Don’t give into it. YOUR day will be the best so long as it’s a day filled with the real good stuff that is important to YOU. ✨ Happy Friday, sweet peas! ✨ #keepgoingforward #youdoyougirl #boomshakalaka #gratefulhearthappygirl #momsofinstagram

✨ I might never get the chance to do this again so of course, I took a picture. ✨ This was last Saturday at Dunton Hot Springs. A remote, little, magical place in Colorado. ✨ We got there on snowmobiles, enjoyed a dip in these healing waters filled with minerals and heated naturally to 105 degrees. ✨ To think, I almost let my mind get me and didn’t do this. ✨ Why? Because it’s January and I didn’t want to wear a bathing suit. Hello bod that has loved some treats lately. I know, when I say it out loud it sounds stupid. Don’t come at me. I’m still working on my mind. This has been a years long process. ✨ However, I’m sharing this because I know there are many of you that feel this and have for years. You’ve missed out on experiences because you didn’t feel confident because you weren’t “perfect.” ✨ I have battled this for years. It wasn’t until a year ago when I started seeing someone (a therapist but I like to refer to her as my life helper). I’m not ashamed to admit this and you shouldn’t either. ✨ My little messy head needed help with reasoning. She helped me sort the negative talk and work over some of the hurdles I had wrestled with over many years. ✨ Here’s the thing I’m learning. It’s a practice everyday to feed your mind with loving thoughts. Less comparing. More loving the way I am right now. ✨ Point to all of this...I was proud of myself for loving the point at which I am today. Far from perfect but my mind is healthier. ✨ So I wore that bikini, hopped in that hot spring and enjoyed the day as I was made at that moment and didn’t care about how I looked in the suit or what anyone else thought. ✨ I hope you do the same. It’s a journey and it’s long, so don’t get caught up in making it perfect before you enjoy it. We will never be perfect but we can be happy, confident and full of love along the way. ✨ When you start appreciating yourself and loving YOU, it makes it easier to love the ones around you. ✨ Happy Friday Eve, Sweets! ✨ #keepgoingforward #youdoyougirl #boomshakalaka #gratefulhearthappygirl #changeyourmindset

✨ There are lots of different routes. ✨ Some are long. Some are short. Some curvy. Some steep. Some safe. Some are risky. ✨ The destination may take some a long time and others may hike it fast. The destination will likely change too. Sometimes old roads get boring. Sometimes new scenery is exciting. ✨ Look at YOUR map this morning. Plot out your route and don’t worry how the others are getting to theirs. ✨ There’s One who has the blue print to your life. Trust that He’s got you. Follow your map (your goals combined with your heart and a focused mind) and just keep going. ✨ Quiet the ones that are yelling at you that it’s different or wrong or won’t work. Ear buds work great for that.😉 ✨ Trust Him. Trust yourself and the ones that have the front row, backstage pass to your life. ✨ These are the ones that have helped me most on my route up my mountain. ✨ Go take those steps and move today, I bet it’s beautiful out there. ✨ Happy Wednesday my lovelies. ✨ #keepgoingforward #youdoyougirl #boomshakalaka #changeyourmindset #gratefulhearthappygirl

✨ I think it’s okay to be trendy. I think it’s okay to be old school. I think it’s okay to be silly.

✨ Imagine this. Think about it for a moment. ✨ I have come to fully believe that the disdain we have for others comes from our own disdain we have for ourselves. ✨ How can you possibly love all, or see the beauty in all, find the good, look for the glitter when you don’t see any of that in yourself?? ✨ Friends, it starts with ourselves! When there is respect, love and honor for yourself, the way you were made, you are able to pour that into your family, your friends and ultimately the world. ✨ This is not naive thinking. This is truth. I know this because when I feel I’m lacking something, or when I start comparing, or judging, I can’t possibly find good in anything because my mind is to cluttered with negativity and who the hell wants to be around a person like that. I don’t even enjoy my own company when I fall into that rabbit hole. ✨ It’s 100 percent mindset and it doesn’t change overnight. It’s practice everyday. ✨ It’s feeding your mind loving thoughts. It’s looking for the good in your life even if it doesn’t feel good at the moment. It’s being able to pay someone a compliment without worrying that it took away from your value. ✨ The way we are going to change the world is to change the way we love and respect ourselves first. ✨ Today, don’t get caught up in the threat of others. Let them be themselves. You be yourself and slowly things change for the better. ✨ I think you are an amazing YOU just in case you haven’t told yourself that today. ✨ Happy Friday Eve! ✨ #keepgoingforward #youdoyougirl #gratefulhearthappygirl #boomshakalaka #changeyourmindset

✨ My people! Guess what?! I won’t keep teasing anymore. I have the most exciting news to share with you all!! ✨ I did a thing and I created my own daily gratitude journal and it’s done! ✨ The You Do You Journal™ï¸ is ready for you! ✨ Insert loud, obnoxious, school girl scream here!😂 ✨ For those of you who have been alongside my journey, you know how much a journal practice has helped me. ✨ One of my very best friends gifted me a journal a couple of years ago.

My people! Guess what?! I won’t keep teasing anymore. I have the most exciting news to share with you all!!
✨
I did a thing and I created my own daily gratitude journal and it’s done!
✨
The You Do You Journal™ï¸ is ready for you!
✨
Insert loud, obnoxious, school girl scream here!😂
✨
For those of you who have been alongside my journey, you know how much a journal practice has helped me.
✨
One of my very best friends gifted me a journal a couple of years ago. I implemented the practice into my life and it changed me.
✨
Rewind a couple of years ago, I was a little lost. I didn’t look at myself with the love that I should nor did I see myself in the image of God.

✨ Precisely. ✨ It’s not a competition when it’s your own race. ✨ We set our pace. ✨ Some days it’s on target and others it’s a little more of a jog or maybe even a brisk walk. ✨ Doesn’t matter how fast because we are still moving. ✨ I was slow yesterday so I’m going to move a little more today in all aspects of life. ✨ I hope you do what’s best for you today too. No one is beating you. Remember that. It’s you, always. ✨ If you don’t feel like you’ve got a cheering crowd, I’m here...still clapping for you. ✨ Happy Friday Eve, my Sweet people. ✨ #keepgoingforward #youdoyougirl #boomshakalaka #gratefulhearthappygirl #lessismore2019

✨ Here we are, still kind of stuck in that black hole of Christmas break. You too?? ✨ Where I have literally lived in leggings allllllllll the days. My skin thinks they are one now. ✨ It has been a completely different Christmas break than any other that we have had because I have been home. ✨ I try to share all of the good and real in hopes of you seeing the good in your life but along with that there’s a lot of hard stuff. Stuff that doesn’t need to be sprinkled on social media. Everyone has ‘stuff,’ trust me. So, don’t get caught up in the illusion of perfection. ✨ This mug, that I’m sipping my coffee from today, says one word, ‘Blessed.’ ✨ I know the #blessed on social media gets a lot of play. It gets mocked and such but you know what, it’s truly a state of living and being and it’s not always easy to feel it. ✨ Things don’t have to be perfect for you to feel blessed and grateful. They will NEVER be perfect. In fact, if you can feel that way when things are super hard or rough, then I say, you are living in the house of gratitude with a faith bigger than yourself and that is commendable. ✨ So, we’ve got an entire year ahead of us, a heck of a lot of unknown. So, I’m going to just keep striving to see the good in all the hard and the struggle. That is when you know your faith is bigger than your fear and that is when you can honestly say you have been blessed no matter what. ✨ Happy Wednesday to you all, the ones that shine their bright lights on my life. ✨ I see you. ✨ #keepgoingforward #youdoyougirl #gratefulhearthappygirl #lessismore2019 #boomshakalaka

✨ It’s the last day of the year...I swear I say this every time but “that flew by!” Right?! ✨ I go through the day to day and everything seems the same but when I look back and add it all up, NOTHING is the same. ✨ There have been plenty of days I wished for the same again but I know that is not the plan or how it’s supposed to go. ✨ For some reason, I’m not supposed to be where I was a year ago. His plan always throws us curve balls but our faith in Him keeps us ready to face them. ✨ My relationships are drastically different. Some are closer and some are more distant than ever. Part of that makes me sad but I also realize when things change, so do people and that’s okay. ✨ My job is completely different. I left my career 3 months ago. There were lots of reasons, it was time. I’ve been able to be with my kids and family. I have the space to say ‘yes’ to things that I couldn’t before. I created something valuable because of the space I have. More to come on that, if you’ll stay the course with me, I’ll share it soon! ✨ My health is still good and for that, I’m forever grateful. It’s true, if we don’t have that, we don’t have anything. I may not have abs or the leanest body but I can run for miles and can still CrossFit for fun. I love good wine and a fabulous gluten free dessert, so those stay. ✨ I have more good in my life than bad and I’ll keep choosing to focus on that. It’s a daily practice and some days I’m a brat and I’m quickly reminded to snap out of it. ✨ I believe that when we constantly try to live in the house of gratitude, our entire life takes a turn for the better. ✨ When I looked at all the negative, all the bad rose to the top, when I search for the good, the cream always rises to the top. ✨ So today,look for all the good even if it was a really rough year. I believe it will all make sense even if it’s messy today. ✨ I’m not a resolution person, it doesn’t work for my ‘type A perfectionist’ mind. I set big goals for the year but small ones help me focus on each day, week or month. ✨ So, I’ll keep doing me, that seemed to work out the best over the year. ✨ You do you my dears. We are meant to be here, today. ✨ Love you, mean it. ✨

✨ I think if she were here today we would likely have already talked on the phone. I miss our morning phone calls. ✨ I think if she were here today we would have had another amazing Christmas. She lived for Christmas. ✨ I think if she were here today she would host regular sleepovers for her grand babies. Oh they would have loved her! ✨ I think if she were here today we would have coffee and burnt bacon breakfasts together, often...and Mexican food all day everyday. Her fave. ✨ I think if she were here today she would still have a stash of Good N’ Plenty candy in her purse and a bowl of chocolate candy at home. ✨ I think if she were here we would still have Sunday dinner...roast, carrots, rolls and potatoes...and cucumbers in vinegar and oil....can’t forget that! ✨ I think if she were here she’d tell me she was proud of the bold move I made this year. She would calm my nerves and remind me “it’s going to be okay, Annabelle” (she only called me that). ✨ I think she would be thrilled to see her son, my brother rocking at life and climbing the success ladder all while staying sweet and humble. He was her Skippy. (her nickname for him). ✨ I think she would smile to know our Nana still rules the roost or that her sister is still as fabulous and amazing as ever. Best family ever. ✨ I think if she were here, she’d still love her family most and would share a bright smile even on her toughest days. ✨ I think if she were here we would do alllllll the things you do with your Mamas. ✨ Today, she’s been gone 11 years. I got to see her as she left for Heaven on this day in 2007. It was the hardest but most peaceful event I’ll ever see. ✨ I was given 25 years with my Mama. I’m so grateful God gave me her for that time. ✨ Do I wish I got more? Absolutely. However, it wasn’t my plan, as always, it’s His. I’m going to keep learning to trust it because I want to see her again. That will be an epic reunion. ✨ Clearly, she left the greatest impact and left deepest void in my life. ✨ Love your special loves ones deep. We don’t get them forever. ✨ Love you, Mom. Miss you. ✨ #keepgoingforward #gratefulhearthappygirl #griefjourney

✨ We are almost there.
