CONSIDER THIS: God's gift to you is your potential. & YOUR gift to God is what you DO with it. ✨ Did you catch that?? >>> YOUR gift to God is what you DO with the potential you've been given. <<< So.... are YOU using what you've got?? Or, have you SETTLED? Settled into your routine? Your excuses? Your health issues? Your relationships? Your day-to-day? The "this is just how it is" mindset? 😕 I'm so THANKFUL for the community of crazy, awesome, inspiring, UPLIFTING & loving i
I'm lying long on the couch with my feet propped up on Jay's lap, hoping to read a few pages of my latest find. Austyn has found room between us, a space in which to squeeze her petite four year old frame. She is warm & wiggly against me until she finds the perfect spot. She leans her head back and reaches for Jay, gently tracing her fingers across her Daddy's face. First his eyes, his nose, his lips and then her sweet tiny little fingers begin to massage the stubble on his c
HOLLLLY ISH, YOU GUYS!!!! 😍 CHECK THIS OUT >>> Our team, out of 400,000 TEAMS... We just RANKED at #116!!!! 🙋🏼 How INSANE is this, you guys?! GAHHHH! It's REALLY freaking insane!! 😉🙌🏻 ONE YEAR ago, I was A LOT scared. I wasn't sure what I was doing.

I QUIT when my husband died. I QUIT. ENTIRELY. I stopped thinking about it, or obsessing over it. I stopped flirting with it. & whenever it called, I hit "Ignore" as quickly as possible. I stepped around that ish & went about my day in SPITE of it. I quit FEAR, you guys. And it feels GOOOD! I was just SO SICK of it, the worry, the stress, the ANXIETY, the constant DREAD, the illnesses, the fatigue... I let it go. I put my foot down & DECIDED. That was it. I REFUSED to allow f
It was FUTILE. ALL of IT.... WHY EVEN TRY?!?!
I had EVERY excuse in the book to "coast" on just as I was. To watch Netflix every single night, to eat icecream from the couch, to drown my sorrows in too-much-wine. 🍷 I honestly had every excuse in the book to let EVERYTHING stay like this. I mean, I wasn't FALLING APART, but I was BARELY holding it together.
I was a widowed single mom to a T-O-D-D-L-E-R, though, you know?

When it comes to freedom, I know a lot more about chains. ⛓ For a long while, I chose to let GRIEF hold me hostage. I chose to be held back by LIMITING beliefs. I chose to be stuck in a life that held NO passion for me. 😕 But, NOW....
