The middle sucks.Hard.
The endorphins from the beginning, the start of something new, they are long gone. There's no light to be seen at the end of the tunnel- have you even seen the tunnel?!?!
You're just in it.
The middle of a race, of learning a new skill, of reparing a relationship, of starting a business, of working on yourself.
I know that if I had not had ladies with me on this run I would have stopped at LEAST 5 miles before we actually did. Shoot, even with them there I heavily considered stopping 2 miles earlier.
I know for long runs and physically demanding challenges, I need other people with me, or I quit early or don't go at all.
I know in building my business, I need my mindset and business coaches to keep me focused and moving forward.
I know when recovering from my eating disorder, I needed extra support and structure.
I know I occasionally need a reboot in the gym and hire a trainer to reenergize me.
Know what you need.
Know what support to put in place.
I would have nothing if it werent for the support of other people. Sometimes its paid support, sometimes its mutual support, and sometimes its just calling a friend.
The middle can be hard. Getting better can be challenging. Moving forward can be painful.
Truth is forever seems like a long time, but I’m excited to spend it with you 💜
I can’t picture a day without you.. your smile, your touch, your kiss, your advice, your caring words, your level of empathy, your acceptance for everything in our life together, your faith through thick and thin, your wit 100% of the time, all of you.
My goal is to grow with you as a whole, every facet of your being makes my heart smile. 💜

At some point considering every possible detail and scenario is not helpful.
Thoughtfulness is one thing.
Stalling on the hamster wheel is another.
If we spend most of our days in our head - thinking, role playing, living in the worry of the future, hemming, hawing, it’s up to us to get out of the cycle by feeling.
Feeling the emotions.
If that’s too tough, feeling the physical body is a super effective alternative.
I had a run of a handful of days starting last weekend - therapy, shamanic energy clearings, a full schedule that had me swirling - and it feels great to watch my response.
Years ago I would have freaked out, let my anxiety get the best of me and probably go off on someone (sorry, bae) about something insignificant because I was unable to watch without getting caught up in the chaos and see the impermanence of those emotional discomforts.
I feel happy, strong, and stable knowing I had the compassion not to shame myself for having so many projects coming to apexes at once.
I managed it.
I asked for what I needed.
I slept. A lot.
I worked. A lot.
And today things started to soften.
So nice to trust the process and myself.
So appreciative of losing myself all those years ago during relentless sadness so I could truly find myself.
Please remember it’s always okay to be proud of yourself, to love the way you love and shred all doubt that being you is absolutely the best and brightest idea you could ever have. .
Get dirty and upset.
That is where the gold is.
A true welcome home

A life that’s good - I have it and I wish it for all of you!
There are hard days and season, for sure, but one thing is for sure: I am blessed beyond measure and thank God everyday for my man, my daughters, my family and friends, my LIFE. All of it, period!
May you all sing it out, dance it out and rest easy at night, knowing how blessed you truly are! 🙏
Goodnight y’all! Xoxo
Ps: full song in IGTV 😘
Getting to babysit these kids is honestly one of my favorite things to do in my free time.
Their mom is one of my good good friends and has been such a blessing in my life. She is such a strong independent woman and I strive to be the mom she is one day.
Thankful God has put some amazing people in my life! ♡
...HANG MUA PEAK is 500 steps up to the top of a split mountain where there is a pagoda at one peak and a stone carved dragon at the other. Their dragon is a symbol of prosperity so I rubbed all over it. It seemed as though the sun and humidity were more brutal than the climb and I’m sure my eyeballs were sweating. I also proudly chuckled at the sight of some of the youngsters struggling to climb to the top 🤣
Yeaaaayyyyy... Finally you did it !!!
Happy Graduation Dear.. I hope your dreams take you to the corner of your smiles, to the highest of your hopes, to the windows of your opportunities, and to the most special places your heart has ever known.
(sii pemegang kartu merahku) , terimakasih untuk kerecehan , kebacotan dan kengototan di setiap moment.. I Love You 2500 🤗😘😘🤪 , human like u hard to find , you know me so well.
Please Stay here.. tetap jadi temen ngobrolin hal hal tabu
Think it hurts now? Imagine being in the same place one year from now. The answer is NO. You will NOT. You don’t belong there. So guess what? You will stare this change in the face. You will feel all the pain. You will embrace the ache. And you will #decide to use it all as fuel for your #reinvention . Who do you want to be? How could THIS be a catalyst for the change that could get you there? Don’t lay down to it. Don’t give in to it. Let it be...and then #switch . REINVENT yourself. Become the you you’ve always wanted to be...even now...especially now. You deserve it and we are waiting.
🏆🏆Today’s Favorite Move 🏆🏆 This 3 move combo had me in love today! ❤️❤️❤️ It made me feel like a beast despite my legs screaming at me.
By the time PayPay Marie and I made this video my arms were shot....my push-up wasn’t great, but I can’t put my left knee down right now. 🤷♀️ I felt so much better about everything after doing my workout today - these endorphins are free if you are willing to do it!
How about Pay doing this move, is she not the cutest?!? One of the most rewarding and terrifying feelings as a mom is knowing your kids will imitate what you do.
Mommas don’t forget you are showing your kids what they can do and who they can be....
