Repost !! 💎 Because lately (and I get this a lot) “how do you do it alone with two kids?” And I have to admit, it’s overwhelming, some days are better than others, I rarely have “time to myself” but I’ve reflected on the fact that ITS NOT ABOUT ME. It’s about my kids and them being happy. So while I’m running through the motions at the end of the day my kids SEE ME. The grind, the love, the comfort, the teaching & everything in between. I can look & say “I DID THAT” 💕 I’m far from “the perfect mother” BUT - I know years from now when they ask me the same question they’ll remember everything i have done up to this point NEVER BROKE ME. MADE ME STRONGER, WISER, & PATIENT. I never left them, I was always there when they needed me. Everything I’ve done has been FOR or BECAUSE of them. I struggled, and still do. But it’s worth it. Bc I’ll grind everyday for my kids to see i SIMPLY WANTED TO GIVE THEM A BETTER LIFE. And truthfully I pray - the day I leave this earth they know how much I love them despite my past or mistakes. 🤗❤️💕 #Goodnight#DeepThoughts 💭 #LetGoLetGod
I’ve learned that forgiveness doesn’t always heal relationships. It is wise to let those people go as they are not capable of love.
When you truly learn to let go and walk away from those that don’t support you, love you or lift you up, an amazing thing begins to happen... many others that will support, love and lift you up will begin to show up in your life by the groves, like in this picture today and your passion begins to emerge and your fire is relit and life is good really good!

I purchased these boots 8 years ago. I would long for the temperatures to drop every year just to wear them. Eight years later, these boots have been through it all. They are worn, falling apart, broken zipper but I still just could not let them go. One day, my sister-in-law asked me if I wanted some knee-high boots she no longer wanted. Brand new, never worn suede boots. I couldn't let those old ones go until my sister in law gave me a new pair of knee-high boots. I can finally let go of the old. Its easier to let go because I have something to replace them with. What was I really benefiting from keeping them? They were just taking up space, collecting dust, and no longer valuable. Are you holding on to old things that add nothing to your life? If you won't let go of the old, you can't receive the new.

I got love for everyone but if you don’t like me, then that’s just your problem. Hatred is evil, ugly and stressful and will never be a part of my life. Love you in Jesus name.😘 #letgoletgod#saynotohatred#lemmeprayforyou

I find myself worrying about too many things lately... but God tells me to let Him handle it! Trust & faith are difficult for me because I always want to be in control of my environment and my life. Is anyone else the same way?! But if I let go of those reigns (even just a little) and let God have control, He leads me places I never thought I was capable of going 🙌 He has a plan, and it’s my job to fulfill it!
I am VERY grateful that I am able to provide income for our family AND love on my babies at the same time 😍😍 I get to live a life that many are yearning to have and I give God all the glory. Being your own boss can be very stressful and overwhelming at times.....but then there's moments when God taps me on the shoulder and reminds me "Child, I did not answer your prayers only to overwhelm and overwork you" He answered them so I could help fulfill the lives of others and give Him the GLORY!
You see, I prayed for a change so that my little family could spend more time together. I didn't know exactly what I was praying for I just begged God for an answer. My fiance at the time was working pipeline and we would go 2,3 sometimes 4 months at a time away from one another- HATED that and so did he. It was hard.
The answer to my prayers came just a couple months later when I was introduced to Monat....I had no idea at that time that Monat was the answer to my prayers--- but the Lord showed up and showed off!! He mysteriously placed all the right people in my life at just the right time, He gave me the confidence to retire my 8 year stylist career and have FAITH because I KNEW without a doubt His hand was in this and I better not fight it!
So I trusted God....100%. And boy did he answer my prayers. Sometimes that's all it takes--- a lot of faith and little hard work! Our lives are very different from a year ago.....our main priority is genuinely loving on each other and spending TIME together.
Ask for it......have you even asked God? Ask Him! The answer might not be right away but He'll direct you to the right path if you be still and listen to him❤
More control 'out there' will never equal more freedom and safety.
Quite the opposite.
If you're ready to learn to let go of control to let life flow, I am about to launch my newest container that will help you take back control of the only thing we ever have control over.
The thing that will bring us true freedom, joy, and peace.
Are you ready? 💜
PS it's like riding a bike. You can't just read about riding a bike, you gotta get on the bike and do the work. Then the body remembers for life.
“Living in presence means walking through life without a map, following only the commands of the heart and being guided by the Holy Spirit. Presence itself guides you. Being present, it’s impossible to run away from yourself. In fact, you only find yourself and recognize your gifts and talents in presence, because it is the manifestation of spontaneity. Through presence, you become a pure channel of the divine will.” #PremBaba
I have a lot of pictures, and I'm never good at picking favorites - ask me my favorite song, I dare you - that goes for anything really. I love moments captured but these are at the top of my most cherished list, but clearly not my most flattering and you know what? I'm a-okay with that. They capture the emotion of this moment so well. A moment that felt juxtaposed between my never wanting to say goodbye and the gut-wrenching pain of just wanting it to end. If you know me at all, you know that I have a knack for candids. Capturing moments as they are, not on some ideal of what we want something to be. It's something I'll always strive for in my own images. Capturing people, connections between them, and the emotions associated with it. These here certainly don't fall short. This moment is one I didn't think I'd get the chance to have, I wasn't sure I'd make it back from my 2 week road trip in time to say goodbye, but he held on and he waited for me and I'm thankful to have had just a few more hours with him regardless of crying the entire time. I know this post is melancholic in nature, but beautifully so. Pain is something I have a natural inclination to avoid, but life is inherently a stream of highs and lows stitched together. Moments to be lived - every single one of them. The silver lining of loss is that life was lived. Love was shared. Lives were brightened because of it. I'm forever grateful for having loved, and for learning how to love my fellow human better. May this encourage you to not be afraid of the things that have potential to bring pain. Life is meant to be lived outside of fear, something I inevitability struggle to do, and maybe you do too. Share your love with as many as you can, regardless of the pain it may ensue. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Bud, it's been 8 months of living without you and I miss you daily, but your adventurous spirit lives on with me - forever my sliver of peace. Huge thanks to my dear friend @aylaroe for coming and capturing these last moments with my all time favorite adventure companion. I'm beyond grateful to have them, as well as your friendship. ❤️
Through my inner struggles and my constant nonstop conversations and noise going on in my head.... I have to find time on my morning commute to let go and let God. Him and His Spirit have been giving me so much peace, and I can tell when I have a day I don’t give it to Him. 🙏🏼🙏🏼 As long as I stay faithful and live by His word, I don’t have any doubt that he will give me what I need. He’s all I need. He gives me the peace, safety, love, and affirmations that I need, and He gets all the praise for it. •
