Today we scoped out a couple of places for a photoshoot this week for the cover of the book & ended up swinging by the park where @j_galios proposed... makes me weepy eyed just thinking about it! 😍😭💕 If you aren’t on the book list yet, get IN there!! I’ll need some help picking my choice for the cover (I only *share in* the final say so don’t hate me if it goes against your vote. 😜) once we have the proofs!! 💯 >> alyssagalios .com/book #MadeforBraveBook
Stepmom. Whatever kind of mom you are, if you are present with your kids (as much or as little time as you get with them), if you are doing your best to love them then >> KEEP ON GOING!! Being a parent is hard work. Some of the hardest work there is. And you deserve a HECK OF A LOT more GRACE than you are probably giving yourself. Show up. Get dressed. Do your best. & remember, no
I’m BRAVER now than I was before. & I’m definitely a heckuva lot stronger. If you aren’t doing something everyday that pushes you outside of your comfort zone, don’t expect to grow. ✨ Spots just opened for our March Fit Tribe... Use the link below for more details. Remember girl, nothing changes if nothing changes. 😘 Bit.ly/BraveBabes #MadeforBrave
“I finally stopped trying to create a roar in my life louder than the questions... I felt like my life depended on the answers, because if God was just a big-day-meany, then things were going to change.” -#MadeforBraveBook”
Does God actually exist?
Does He love us?
How could He, when so much of this world has seemingly gone to crap?
Maybe you’ve avoided asking the BIG questions... maybe you’ve tried to convince yourself that the answers don’t matter (that us
I bet you didn’t know this about me but I’m blind as a bat without contacts (legally blind)...
Oh & on Saturdays, I’m lucky if my kids make it out of their pajamas...
PLUS, I mess up in life OFTEN.
I like a good filter & a clean feed because that’s my eye for design kicking in but let me assure you, my life is FAR from perfect.
Remember my friends. We all post our highlights, the good stuff, on social media (which is so awesome because I loooove lovin up on all y’a
These two!! You guys!! Did you see my stories today? Because I’ve caught just a few of the ADORABLE things these girls do on a daily basis on camera as of late &... basically, I. Can’t. Handle. It. So I had to share to see if you could. 😘
But, seriously!! These two have been dancing together, giving each other high fives & telling each other stories. I know the second Emmy utters her sister’s name for the first time, I will pass out from ADORABLE-NESS... that’s a thin
This has certainly been true of a few things in my experience. Like my relationships with the loves of my life... Like this book I’m getting to publish... Like that time I found the perfect house to rent as a single mom in a crazy market... but there’s been other times, it doesn’t feel so much like flow. Sometimes it feels like fighting for what I know I’m supposed to fight for. So how do I know when I’m on the right path? How do I know if God is in it? It’s a deep sense of p
PSA: I showered today!! #WINNING
But, seriously... Signing with a publisher has meant all kinds of new layers of editing & rewrites but I’m SO DANG thankful for it.
We are making the #MadeforBraveBook even better! So I will absolutely not be complaining, even if it means extra work.
It’s kind of like what God does with us sometimes right? I don’t know about you but... At this point in my life, I will GLADLY take the painful edits & refinements if it means I co
This is what I look like when I’ve gotten ready for the day... & I must admit, today, I did NOT get ready. Today was launch day for our second round of this epic 20 minute a day step program AND I’m still burning the midnight oil (( or 10pm oil... whatever, same idea )) to finish some things up on this book deadline over here!! Whenever I used to work this many hours on anything else, I called it burnout. But this? This, I call passion. ✨ PTL I work from home & still had the
I mean... *I* KNOW you are powerful, beautiful, brilliant & brave. But, if you’re anything like I used to be, you probably DO NOT wake up *feeling* that way.
So, how do you show up in these ways when it doesn’t feel true? You start with one #BraveMove.
For me, a lot of BELIEVING this about myself started with getting my mornings in order. If I started out in charge of the first hour of my day... if I worked out & moved my body so that I could feel strong (aka. my
