Here’s a photo from a few years ago when I was crushing goals left, right and centre at all hours of the day and had no idea what was actually spiralling inside my head - or maybe I was crushing these things to essentially distract from other things 🤷🏼♀️ life is wild eh.
Pretty pumped to seemingly have finally risen above a hard season for me - the things I uncovered, the things I am now aware of, and how dialed in I am to my own wants/needs - time to take that and and get back to crushing goals from a new perspective. #serenity
You two truly are my #serenity , #myworld , #myeverything . Without you to fuel my #recovery , I would be lost. I am utterly #blessed to have such intelligent, loving, and caring children in my life; never again will I take you for granted. Thank you for helping me open my eyes to the true beauty of life. Mommy will make you proud.
Spent an hour after work this morning enjoying the quiet in the desert. The smell of sage in the morning sun, the feel of a slight breeze on my face and the sound of birds chirping (until a freight train came through) helped make everything as serene as possible. We all have struggles and times where we just need to get to that place where we can think of nothing and just take in all our surroundings. #RJT#YOLO#youmatter#liveyourlifenow#serenity#highdesert
“Asustar a los miedos. Engañar a las excusas. Aullar con los lobos. Cantar más fuerte a las ganas. Saltar al vacío. Bailar en la tempestad. Llorar con la cabeza en alto. Admirar a las heridas. Callar a quien diga que no puedo, morder mi lengua cuando haga lo mismo. Correr tras el coraje. Sonreír a lo desconocido.Volar con los pies. Caminar con la cabeza. Gritar al futuro “ya te temí por mucho tiempo, ahora te toca”. Abrazar a la vida.”

Promises you’ve been standing on, dreams you’ve been praying about, in this year, God’s going to cause things to fall into place. He’s going to make things happen that you could never make happen on your own. 😇
One thing I've learned is to never block someone else's blessing. Right after my divorce, I was at work (at a Christian bookstore, which if you knew me, you'd get a kick out of) and one of my regular customers picked out her items like she always did and asked me a bunch of questions...like she always did. She was a frail old lady that took her bible wherever she went. •
She knew I was newly single with two littles ones but I was okay. I had enough money to cover bills and rent and that's always been good enough for me (at that point in life). Out of nowhere, she pulls out a one hundred dollar bill and tries to hand it to me. •
I declined. Number one, I didn't need it. Two, she needed it more than I did. Three, I wasn't used to receiving. Four, it caught me off guard. •
The look she gave me reminded me of my own grandmother when I was a kid getting a talkin' to. "Girl, don't you be blockin' my blessings because you don't want yours. Take it." •
I took the money. I wrote about her in my bible when I got home that night. I think about Maxine often. She was full of lessons and love. Maxine had a big ol' heart. •
