Coming Clean...


I've got THOUSANDS of friends on social media, but I don't think even ONE of you knows all of this. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜†

1. I have WEIRD looking feet & insanely SMALL pinky toes. ๐Ÿ˜‚ #butilovethem

2. I BEGGED God to take my life instead of my husband's. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ #barteredtoo

3. I never thought much about being a mom until I was PREGNANT. ๐Ÿคฐ

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. ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

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.) ๐Ÿ˜

7. I've told God I hated Him... on multiple occasions. (Note: He's always forgiven me. & I've forgiven myself, too.) ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

8. I drink wine more often than is recommended on my meal plan. #whoopsie#sorrynotsorry Prosecco is my FAVE. ๐Ÿพ

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!! โœจ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ‰โœจ

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 ๐Ÿ˜†โœŒ๐Ÿผ

11. I played Division II women's university soccer on a near-full-ride scholarship and DROPPED OUT 4 months later. ๐Ÿ™€๐Ÿ”ซโšฝ๏ธ#becauseofmyillness #butSTILL

12. My nose seems particularly large to me from MOST every angle. ๐Ÿ‘ƒ๐Ÿผ

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. ๐Ÿ˜ #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! โœจ๐Ÿ’žโœจ

15. I cannot keep plants alive for the LIFE of me. Seriously, CAN NOT. No one can help me. It's BAAD! ๐Ÿฅ€๐Ÿ˜ฌ (Just ask Jay.)

Why tell y'all ALLLL of this?! ๐Ÿค—

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." ๐Ÿค”

โœ‹๐Ÿผ 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.

โฉ YOU ARE NOT ALONE. โช

And if NOTHING about your story indicates future success or happiness... KNOW that MINE DIDN'T EITHER. โ˜บ๏ธ

We HAVE the POWER to change our own lives. It's already in each of us. โœจ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผโœจ

But change will not occur until you BELIEVE it's possible & decide to TRY. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ
