Coming Clean...

I've got THOUSANDS of friends on social media, but I don't think even ONE of you knows all of this. 🤗😬🤔😆

1. I have WEIRD looking feet & insanely SMALL pinky toes. 😂 #butilovethem

2. I BEGGED God to take my life instead of my husband's. 🙏🏼 #barteredtoo

3. I never thought much about being a mom until I was PREGNANT. 🤰

4. I seriously doubted Gods existence & DEFIANTLY RAGED against the possibility of His goodness for over a year after Nick died.

5. I've been engaged 3 times, twice before I was 20. 🙊👌🏼🤷🏼‍♀️

6. For years, I was self conscious of my paleness, moles & freckles and it's taken me a LOT to get comfortable in my own skin. (Pun intended.) 😁

7. I've told God I hated Him... on multiple occasions. (Note: He's always forgiven me. & I've forgiven myself, too.) 🙏🏼

8. I drink wine more often than is recommended on my meal plan. #whoopsie#sorrynotsorry Prosecco is my FAVE. 🍾

9. A little over a year ago, I was struggling with CHRONIC back pain & a HORRIBLE auto immune disease. Neither of which were "curable" according to doctors. But, NOW I'm FREEEEE!! ✨💃🏻🎉✨

10. I REFUSED to be a "fitness coach" vehemently for months EVEN THO I knew I had the recipe to help people change their lives, too... because I was afraid of what people would think of me. #gavethatup 😆✌🏼

11. I played Division II women's university soccer on a near-full-ride scholarship and DROPPED OUT 4 months later. 🙀🔫⚽️#becauseofmyillness #butSTILL

12. My nose seems particularly large to me from MOST every angle. 👃🏼

13. I've been recruited to be an author, speaker, radio host & partner in the last year on four separate occasions & have turned down every offer so that I can do what I'm doing NOW. 😍 #bestjobever

14. I know my Creator, the Master of the Universe, in ways now that I never dreamed possible. He's got my back & EVERYTHING that happens is slanted in my favor. Basically, AMAZEBALLS! ✨💞✨

15. I cannot keep plants alive for the LIFE of me. Seriously, CAN NOT. No one can help me. It's BAAD! 🥀😬 (Just ask Jay.)


Why tell y'all ALLLL of this?! 🤗

Because sometimes I think people look at social media and think "DANG, she's got it all together." Or, "If only my life were like his." 🤔

✋🏼 But, here's the HONEST truth. >>>

We ALL have good parts & bad parts to our story. We all face tragedies & successes, wins & losses, hope & turmoil.


And if NOTHING about your story indicates future success or happiness... KNOW that MINE DIDN'T EITHER. ☺️

We HAVE the POWER to change our own lives. It's already in each of us. ✨🙌🏼✨

But change will not occur until you BELIEVE it's possible & decide to TRY. 💪🏼
