An Attitude of Gratitude will not only make you happier, it will also make you healthier (psychological and physiological).
Maintain a positive outlook on life, because it doesn’t happen TO us, it always happens FOR us 🎯
I have a pretty good life. Scratch that... I have an AMAZING life. I have my health, a few small groups of amazing friends, a loving and supportive fiancée, 2 beautiful, smart, and healthy kids, a beautiful home, and an amazing career where I get to work from my home office and make my own schedule so that I don’t have to miss out on anything when it comes to my little ones. I don’t say all this to brag. I say it because sometimes I get so caught up in the daily grind that I forget to count my blessings. My blessings didn’t just happen. I’ve worked my ASS off to have this life. I moved to a different state, I worked a full time job, grinded my way through college and earned my BA. I ditched negative people on the way (including bad relationships with men) and took time to figure out what I truly wanted and realized what I deserved after my first son was born and I was a single mom for almost 2 years. Those 2 years were the most emotionally and physically draining years of my life. I worked retail and got paid really well but quit the job that helped put me through school so I could get my foot in the door and use my degree. I took a huge pay cut and worked 4 jobs at one point to support myself and my son, but I got through it and I met my Best Friend, and someone who has been an amazing father to my son and to our daughter, and ended up taking an amazing career opportunity shortly after. I took a leap of faith on the man and career I chose, and now I sit and thank God for putting those opportunities in front of me, but I thank Myself for being strong enough and smart enough to take advantage of them. I’m extremely grateful and now I realize that if I could do ALL that, I can do THIS. I can take care of myself the way I take care of my family because it’s NOT selfish to put myself first sometimes. THIS journey to a better and healthier me is necessary, and should be a piece of Low Carb, No sugar, Keto cake for me! 💪🏼🎂❤️
And if I can do this, you can too!!! 💁🏻♀️#hardworkpaysoff#notimeforexcuses#workhardplayhard#behumble#createyourownhappiness#ketogenicdiet#igotthis#badass
Powerfully supportive New Moon 🌙 in Capricorn this evening.
New moons are all about new beginnings, but this one in particular is supporting us taking the opportunity to go inward and ask ourselves more about what REALLY matters to us... what our hearts + souls are yearning to create. ✨
Then it's going to be prime time to take action. Time to bring the dream to life and create what we've been dreaming of! Allow the potent energy of this moon to support you in rising to the delicious opportunities in front of you so you can take action confidently and joyfully.
Time to lean in to your intuition, as well as more gratitude and letting go of our excuses to get fully into inspired, right action... knowing the universe has your back.
What have you always wanted to do or create? Carpe that diem! ✨
Your dreams are stepping stones in creating the life you desire and the positive impact you've been craving making. Take them seriously and choose to take the next steps in making them a reality. This is a season of deep transformation... lean in. 🌙

Some days consist of glam, photo shoots & staying in a huge mansion with 25 of your girlfriends. But most days this is the reality. Pajamas, robe, quick dinner & joining my ladies online for a video chat for our team call. Love it all! 💕
Our team is hosting a sneak peek on Thursday where we talk about our testimonials, explain what we do, myths about what we do & just share from the heart. This is a perfect opportunity to get a behind the scenes look if you have ever been interested. I can send you a link if you want to be added 💕
For the past year I've been working on that round capped delt look & finally I feel I've achieved that. It's nothing big but the little things like this make it worth it because in the end we are working on our own body's, we can't compare anybody but ourselves and work on our weak points. #bodybuilding#createyourownhappiness
THIS my friends is what is possible when you out your heart and soul into helping others get fit...mentally, physically and financially fit!
This is my bestie Jen Delvaux...and I am sharing this because FIRST I am so so so incredibly proud of her! SECOND because so many people can benefit from seeing this and learning more about what this business offers! People are often all too skeptical (like I once was), because they simply don't understand it! They assume it is not possible to build a big business....or that you have to have some huge transformation story to get started, or that you need a huge social media presence with a bunch of followers, or you need to be some sort of personal trainer.....or the BEST ONE....you have to do this full time. I don't...and yet have built a business that has allowed me to go part time :-) Sure, this is not a business for everyone, but SO many people are a great fit for this and are missing out due to limiting beliefs and misconceptions of MLM's. This business can be way better than a dead end job that keeps you away from your kids and your family. It is not easy or quick, but it puts YOUR health and well being first...so you can be an awesome spouse/parent/PERSON! And you get to inspire others.
There is SO much this business has done for me as well....and I would LOVE to share that with you. Drop your fav emoji below and I will message you! **BB does not guarantee any level of income or success with this opportunity.

Well it’s a marvelous night for a New Moon 💖🔮💖 Tonight we’re setting the stage for big career moves and progress in ourselves. Remembering who we are and that we don’t have to search for ourselves, there’s no where to run, but we just need to step into who we are and continue our evolution. The theme? Lovely open doors for every closed one. 🙏🏻
This hair makes me feel like a different person. Brings out my alter ego, Sasha. She is FIERCE. Lol. •
It's been about 16 months since I straightened my real hair but loveeeee this because it lets me get the style without the damage...& I'm always here for a win-win, okay?!
Despite the high maintenance, expensive products and bad hair days, I prefer my fro to anything else, so protecting the mane has become a priority when I want to switch it up! 🙌🏽 what are some of your fave protective styles??
Say it with me now: “I am committed to myself. I am committed to my profitable business. I am committed to my preferred lifestyle.”
A few months ago my coach had me write these exact words down. At first, I thought it was a bit silly. How could just rewriting someone else’s words make an impact into my mindset and into my life? Boy, I was wrong.
Committing to something… utterly, truly committing and investing 100% of yourself into something is the quickest way to achieve what you want.
It’s now been 4.. maybe 5 months (honestly I can’t even remember) of diving 100% into working for myself. There’s been a lot of ups and downs. High baller months, and months where I’m all nervous and stressed about where the money or clients are going to be coming from. The magic thing is, the work always seems to show up for me when I need it.
The problem I see in this solo-entrepreneurial world is the lack of commitment individuals have towards success. You want to work for yourself full-time and make the income you believe you deserve… but you’re still working full-time in another job with maybe 2 hours a week to dedicate towards your dream business and life. How the hell do you think that’s supposed to get you to achieve your goals?
If you want to work for yourself. If you want to be your own boss and live each and moment of your life happy, you need to KNOW what you want. Write it down. Word for word. I want this, I want that. And COMMIT. Seriously. Commit to achieving what it is that you want.
Know what you want for your life, commit to yourself that you will achieve, and go get it.
Now.. let me see you say it: “I am committed to myself. I am committed to my profitable business. I am committed to my preferred lifestyle.”
I’m not interested in power. Not power dynamics, not power struggles. We’ve all done that already for so long and I find it terribly boring at best, like watching a bad TV show- the invitation is always there, but why would I do that? I’m interested in Strength, which is an entirely different thing. I’m interested in communication and health and I’m interested in exploring the possibility for mass scale responsible, sustainable, heart centered, liberated creativity. This land is has revealed to me my strengths, and is continually showing me the strength of this community of women and arranging us all like puzzle pieces, intelligently placed to reveal the big picture, which is of course stunning beyond anything I could have imagined. ✍️:@activeculturefamily 📷 :@activeculturefamily
Do you journal? 📓 I can’t remember the last time I took a few moments to just write or get my thoughts out. Now, don’t get me wrong, this girl can make a list! 😜 I use lists for everything! But, journaling, not so much... Well, the next few months, I’m taking the time to write out some pretty kickass goals, track progress, and soak up just being able to get some thoughts on paper. So what’s a journaling tip you have for me? ☺️ Bonus, I found this amazing journal on Amazon Prime (I’m addicted to it) ... and it even has a layout to help me begin journaling. 💜 #winning#journal#writeitdown#trackprogress#setgoals#reachgoals#goalgetter
I AM..... One of the most powerful statements you can say about yourself and your life. Choose wisely. Choose positives and attract that in to your life, the same goes with negatives.
I AM worthy, I AM abundant, I AM powerful, I AM inspirational, I AM amazing, I AM a money magnet, I AM loved.
Craft your I AM statements and repeat every single day. What are yours?
Day 16 of #365daysofgratitude Today I am grateful to have taken a few moments throughout the day to practice mindfulness and be totally present in that moment. It took me a long time to get to the point where I was able to shut my mind off to the thoughts that popped in my head, but the practice has totally paid off and has been hugely beneficial to my day to day life.
Once upon a time there was a person named Humanity. Humanity was trapped in a very tall tower guarded by a slimy improvement monster. An improvement monster is a creature unlike anything you’ve ever seen. It looks like all your nightmares in one and has the power of all the monsters ever known. The improvement monster was created out of thousands of comments from parents, friends, school, media and society. And it fed of the self hatred Humanity developed from that. For every comment the improvement monster grew stronger and stronger and STRONGER. 🌸
Humanity couldn’t remember what the world was like outside the prison of the improvement monster so for many years Humanity didn’t think much about it. The Improvement monster constantly said Humanity wasn’t enough and had to improve this and that. And this and that. As long as they did what the monster wanted they had a pretty good life in the tower. 🌸
The years passed and one day Humanity found a glimmering desire to explore life outside of the tower. Because Humanity had realised that this life actually wasn’t very comfortable and all the things the Improvement monster said didn’t feel good either. Humanity had realised it actually sounded more like bullshit than the truth and it made them angry! There was only one problem: now the monster was so big Humanity didn’t know how to get out. Humanity searched the corners of the mind to find one little clue of how to defeat the improvement monster. They thought and thought and thought. And one day they finally had an idea. What if they would refuse to improve like to monster wanted to? If the monster got stronger from Humanity hating themselves, maybe it would get weaker if they loved themselves? And then weaker and weaker and weaker, until it was possible to kill it! It would be a hard challenge but it was worth a try. 🌸
With #KillTheImprovementMonster I challenge myself to post pictures I’m not happy with. If this inspires you, feel free to do the same! The idea came after I said “Ugh!” at a photo my mum took of me. My first thought was to never post it. But I realise that’s the voice of the improvement monster, so as a first step to kill it, here it is!
What's for lunch today?? I devoured this toasted bagel covered with avocado, cream cheese and #mamaraps Special Blend. It's a yummy mix of garlic, onion, bell peppers and spices I picked up in #Gilroy , CA - the garlic capital or the world. 💚🥑💛 #garlic#avocado#bagel#whatsforlunch
Has anyone else been feeling grumpy or sad? It might be the weather, but the sunshine def helped my mood today. And I’ve been using these two lately to help focus and realign myself.
In Tune: I’ll be honest, kind of smells terrible 😂 (that ylang ylang is strong) BUT once it’s on my body I don’t mind the smell at all. It is doterra’s focus blend to help you be present with your goals and projects throughout the day. If you’re feeling distracted, scattered, or find yourself procrastinating a lot then try this blend ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Non-emotional uses: it has a lot of calming oils so you can use it for sleep as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Forgive: I’ve been like, having a hard time being positive lately which is unusual for me and when that happens I start to retreat into myself. This blend was made to help ppl (meeee) let go of cynicism, negativity, and be open to forgiving and understanding not only other people but yourself as well. Good for when you’re having anxious feels. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Non-emotional uses: good for skin issues and supports the liver.
I don’t usually use them both at the same time, but alternate during the day or every other day. I put In Tune over my heart, and when I use forgive I put it over my heart, wrists, and neck. #lovewildtribe#growloveoils

“Did you have to do this?
I was thinking that you could be trusted./ Now we’ve got problems. And I don’t think we can solve them./ You made a really deep cut. now we’ve got bad blood.”
These last few weeks have been about shaking up everything, throwing it up in the air and seeing things I didn’t see before.
Seeing last remaining threads to connections I have tried so hard to maintain break when I have shared honestly and authentically.
I am very curious to see where all the pieces will land.
As a Cancer, words do not hurt me. But lack of care for my heart, lack of sensitivity and ridiculing me do. And there are some cuts a person can make that break my heart to the point where the relationship is changed forever.
In the end these things are all only leading us to more liberation. So I face the truths bravely and willingly go into the pain so it burns all the illusions I still hold on to about people and situations around me.

Reminder: if you do not like your situation, change it. You don’t have to stay in a place, situation or with people who make you unhappy. When it comes to your happiness, never settle. You and you alone are in charge of the situations in your life. If you don’t like where you are, move. Do something different. Go somewhere new. Life does not have to be one constant mediocre thing after another. Sometimes you have to get out of your comfort zone to get what you really want, and that’s okay.

First of all again a little delivery that’s made my day!! .
I joined an APP called mush mums which is basically local mums with similar interests or kids etc: .
Anyway I’ve agreed to host a mums get together in a hall somewhere super casual and Just lots of ACTUALLY friendly faces ❤️ then I received this which pretty much made my day and on the back said thanks for just being you! .
Today’s been a great day meeting with an old friend but our usual tea time chaos trying to cook with the girls needing a million and one things and there’s only one of me. .
Everyday I have thoughts of “not enough of me to go around sometimes” and this cards reminded me that yes two of me would be fab... but one of me is just enough!!
Forget the mistake and remember the lesson. Everyone makes mistakes so don’t dwell on what you did wrong instead, take what you did wrong and turn into a lesson, remember that mistakes are normal and keep it moving🤪💗
"He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson. What fear have you conquered today??? 🤔🤔🤔 I have been trying to step out of my comfort zone each day of 2018. I feel that doing at least 1 thing that scares me, or that I have put off, will only bring me closer to my goals, desires and dreams. Today that fear was with teaching esl on-line. I chose to pursue my Level 1 certification, and passed! Woo Hoo!!! I am now ready to explore "Global Adventures" with my online 4 - 6 year old students. Get ready world, here we come!!! #conquerfear#ralphwaldoemerson#motivation#eslteacher
|| HAPPINESS 🍀|| Sooo, there’s this person on instagram who I’m following for quite a while now. She has this amazing blog which I love to read, because it’s so inspiring. -
This post is about finding and creating your own happiness.
“No one else will ever make you happy unless you know how to do it yourself. It’s not selfish or self-centered – it is necessary. If you don’t put yourself, your dreams and your own happiness first you will never have happy relationships with others and no outside circumstance will ever give you the happiness that you desire.
When you are happy with yourself and your life, everything else will fall into place. Your relationships with others will be fulfilling, you will be successful in what you do and good things will show up in your life.
It’s actually quite simple because instead of trying to control everyone and everything around you, which is an impossible task, you simply start focusing on the only person you have control over: yourself. It’s not about perfection, it’s about trying. The first step on the path of seeking happiness is simply understanding that you are responsible for your own happiness and that you are capable of bringing so much love and magic into your life. I am not there yet, but I try my best. Take care of yourself, of your dreams and of the love you have to offer. The search for happiness begins with yourself.” .
So inspiring... ☁️💙 Go check it out: http://joliejanine.com/

Move through the dense pain slowly-one step at a time. There are many threads to unravel. It will take more than tonight.
It is okay to take your time. It is okay to re-process. It is okay to take breaks. It is okay to need help. It is okay to not know what you need.
This healing will take time. At moments it may expose pieces of yourself you do not want to look at. Study them. Learn from them. Forgiveness is a process of accountability and honesty 💕✨- Lora Mathis

I can't believe my trip back home was only 2 weeks ago! It already feels like a lifetime away now that I'm back into the routine of real life. I do miss that crisp, fresh air in the mornings and a good old walk up the mountain though! ☺️
As u are shifting, u will begin to realize u are not the same person u used to be. The things u used to tolerate have now become intolerable. Where u once remained quiet, u are now speaking ur truth. Where u once battled and argued, u are now choosing to remain silent. U are beginning to understand the value of ur voice and there are some situations that no longer deserve ur time, energy and focus. #gettingolder#valueoflife#loveyourself#createyourownhappiness#workinprogress#humble
