Happy November Loves!
.

Are you willing to work towards what you want no matter how long it takes?
.

It took me 1,460 days or 4 years to reach my goal of losing 90lbs. Sure, I could have done it quicker (and some of my clients do) but for me, losing it slowly was part of my journey of losing this weight for the last time.
.

The belief, patience and resilience that this process developed in me is something that I wouldn’t trade for the world and that I am so thankful for.
.

I used to give up on my weight loss goals when it felt too hard or like it was taking too long. That’s what kept me in the painful cycle of losing weight and then gaining it all back(plus more) for so many years.
.

I didn’t believe in myself or the process. I didn’t realize what I was capable of but I also believed that difficulty or things taking longer than I wanted or expected meant that I should quit. I was wrong.
.

When working towards your goals, you will experience setbacks and disappointments but you will also experience steps forward and successes. They are all part of the journey of getting to where you want to go.
.

The only way to fail is to give up or not start in the first place 🙌🏼
.

Imagine where you could be 4 years (or even just 1 year) from now if you decided to start today and not quit...
.

We have two months left of this year and this decade. Are you going to put off going after what you want til next year or are you going to decide to do something today?
.

Message me if you want to start losing (instead of gaining) weight this holiday season! If you can lose weight during the holidays, the rest of the year is a piece of cake(not literally 😂)!

When my Dad had to go into a dementia care unit, to stay, my heart was hurting badly. (It still does, almost a year later.) 😢

Since my son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, a little more than a week ago, everything seemed scarier and harder. In fact, we tried to go out to eat today, and it was an epic fail on so many levels. 🤦🏽‍♀️ .
.
My stress level has been through the roof, and I’ve taken some time to grieve and just feel ALL the feelings. .
.
This past week (and year) has been hard, and I’m still trying to find my footing. Part of me wants to just hide and keep the pity-party going.... BUT I know I must get up and keep going, while focusing my mind on the positives. 🙏🏼 .
.
My skincare business is one of the MANY positives in my life! I’ve realized it’s time for me to get back to really living/thriving, and to refocus on building my business. After all, I love what I do and THIS is my “work” and how I help provide for our family. This business of mine is what will allow me even more flexibility and income, as I continue on this diabetes journey, etc, and I need/want to step it up! (Plus, it helps my sanity!) 😊
.
And no matter how often I fail, or fall, or how badly I’m hurting, I will always pick myself up and keep going!! I hope you do the same!! Work on growing that RESILIENCE muscle!

PEACE PRIZE

Repost @stepmomming
Last night, both sides of Krista’s family showed up and showed out for her school’s fall festival.
.

If you had told me three years ago, this would be our reality, I wouldn’t have believed you.
.

Three years ago, we lacked trust and respect. We didn’t communicate (at least not effectively). We worked against each other instead of together. It was high-conflict and it caused me immense anxiety.
.

Our relationship has evolved in so many ways, it has been a remarkable journey. Admittedly, some days are better than others. We still disagree, we aren’t perfect. But I’m damn proud of us & how far we've come. - Kristen @stepmomming
.

High-conflict blending requires so much more energy, determination, and fortitude especially from those brave enough to join the "fun". The learning curve is steep & littered with explosives but that does not mean it's an impossible goal.
.

Progress can be frustratingly slow (and your hair might turn white) and it feels like forever to get to a place that resembles security and trust, but it's still better than never arriving at all.
.

In our opinion, reaching this point after such a rough start is like winning a Nobel Peace Prize and is a lauding testament to the character of the parents involved.👏 Take care of each other. #thecoparentingcollective

Headstands up on #maunakea ✨ I stand with you in protection! Will never forget all the beautiful souls I had the pleasure of meeting up on the mauna! The energy up there was insane and the community was so loving. People from all over coming together in support and standing for what they believe in and what’s right. I learned,laughed and loved on the mauna. So proud of all the people still standing strong to this day I’m there in spirit 🦋🔥 #maunakeastrong #protectors #aslongasittakes #natureovermoney #standforwhatsright #kukiaimauna #standtogether

I am my own worst critic. I wish someone would have told me a long time ago that it is ok to be not ok. Depression is real & it sucks. Somedays I just want to lay in bed & let the world pass me by. Somedays I judge myself for not doing everything I should. Somedays I just cry. Instead of being hard & ugly to myself, I’m going to be gentle. It’s ok to not be ok.

Made famous by the movie #SlumDogMillionaire, DHaRAVi is a collection of ramshackle buildings made of a mélange of found materials and corrugated tin line unpaved passageways. It is a teeming slum of nearly a million people in the heart of Mumbai, occupying just over 2.1 square kilometers, making it one of the most densely populated areas the world.

Despite the substandard housing, abject squalor and no infrastructure, Dharavi is also a true entrepreneurial hotspot with micro industries providing it with a sustainable internal economy which it reinvests in a better future for the next generation. .

_______________
When you look back to see how far you’ve come 🔥 This shit was hard. Harder then I even thought because I’ve realized how much baggage, fear, and self loathing I’ve carried throughout my life. Every time I think I’ve got it figured out another door slams my face and I have to figure out how to open it.
_________________
Some of the doors I couldn’t “find the key” so I kicked the fucker open. Other doors it doesn’t matter how hard I kick they didn’t open. I had to fail, fall down and self assess to figure it out. Some I am still working on opening...
_________________
What I know now is this; .
1. You have to want it more then you’ve ever wanted anything else in your entire life, because the challenges you will face will beat you to your knees and you have to find it in you to get back up every single time. .
2. You’re going to cry. Probably a lot at certain times. You’re going to want to give up, and you might even actually think you’re giving up, but so long as you try to get at least 1% better each day you’re still fighting. Give yourself grace, hype yourself up for that 1% and celebrate it. .
3. I have wickedly vicious self talk but I haven’t been using it properly. I use it to tear myself down rather then using it to push myself. Be mindful of how you talk to yourself and figure out how to turn it around to your advantage.

My 10yr old daughter still comes in to bed with me most nights. I wouldn’t change it for the world. When she’s ready I know she’ll sleep on her own, she won’t always want to come in to me, but until then I’ll be there for her. #parenting #mumslife #daughters #sleep #aslongasittakes

Driving in India is a very loud affair... the horn is as important as the gas pedal and may even surpass brakes in importance but above all It seems to completely replace side mirrors... the “horn please” sign tells motorists that the driver prefers to be honked at while being passed on the right…or the left.

We all have something we want in life. The question is - Do you go after it with everything you’ve got? Do you do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes to get what you want?⁣

The truth is, it’s not about talent, potential, brains or even wealth. It’s about the relentless drive to do WHATEVER IT TAKES. Absolutely anything - to get to the top of where you want to go and stay there. ⁣

Those who reach a level of excellence are completely focused on taking extreme ownership and taking charge. No matter what it is; in business, at their job, at school, in sports, at home - They decide to get the job done, they do what is necessary, and whatever it takes. ⁣

It’s the separator from where you are at, to where you want to go. ⁣

When I was little, about four or five years old, someone told me I was a Leo. I asked my grandma what it meant. She didn’t tell me it was about my birthday but she did say “it just means that when god made you, he put a little fire in your heart”. For a very long time, until I was about eleven, I honestly thought I had fire in my heart. She was right though, god did make me with a fire in my heart. My grandmother never tried to tame me (for the most part). She’d always tell me to be as wild as I could be because being different like me, was the most beautiful thing. I miss her. I miss so many things about her but I know she’s a big reason I have that fire in my heart. #flint #uawstrike #generalassembly #local598 #solidarity #flinttruckandbus #aslongasittakes #unionstrong #rosie #rosietheriveter #livingmybestlife #fightingforthefuture #upwithbubblesdownwithair #pinkhair #blueeyes #plaid #cold #nevergiveup

I’m unsuccessfully cleaning my studio because I keep finding old memories. This was a pattern I made when I worked for a quilt fabric company to support my fine art. It’s handmade in watercolor. My boss was pretty upset at how long I took to paint patterns and so eventually he only let me do digital patterns. And then he never even used this. So when I left, I took it with me.
Do you think it could work behind an animal or is it too ... quilt-y?

Can't believe our holiday is almost over 😭😭😭 we have one more day of blissful sunshine before heading home and back to reality 🙈😱
.
I have never been so happy and relaxed these last 2 weeks than I have in a long time 😳 and I want this to continue as much as possible when we're back home, I'm going offline for a while. I just need to take some time to focus on myself and my journey, away from social media. Apologies if I've not replied to any messages/chat I've been sent since Monday 🙈

Wie ben ik - Who am I 🇬🇧⬇️
.
Wie ben ik
Om te oordelen over de pijn van een ander?
Omdat het een pijnstuk triggert in mij?
Pijn die ik niet wil zien
.
Wie ben ik om voor een ander te bepalen
Wanneer hun rouw klaar moet zijn?
Ja het kan hartverscheurend zijn, de pijn zien van een ander
Ja het kan pijnlijk of zelfs irritant zijn
Dus wat vertelt het mij?
.
Is er iets wat ik niet wil zien?
Iets wat ik niet wil voelen?
.
Als ik zie dat iemand (nog steeds) in rouw is
Kijk ik in de spiegel en duik naar binnen
Voel wat het met mij doet
Zodat ik ruimte kan maken en vullen met liefde
Liefde en support die de ander misschien nodig heeft
Liefde en support die ik misschien nodig heb
Ongeacht hoe lang het duurt
.
Sat Nam
.
.
Who am I
To judge someone else's pain?
Because it triggers pain inside of me
Pain I don't want to see
.
Who am I to determine
When someone else's grieve should be done?
Yes it can be heartbreaking, seeing someone else's pain
Yes it can be painful or maybe even anoying
So what does it tell me?
.
Is there something I don't want to see?
Something I don't want to feel?
.
If I feel someone is (still) in grieve
I look in the mirror and dive inside
I feel what it does to me
That way I can make space, filled with love
Love and support the other might need
Love and support I might need
No matter how long it takes

Keep pursuing what sets your soul on fire. It’s ok if it’s taking alittle longer than you thought. Keep going!! Never Ever Give Up.

Repost @stepmomming
Last night, both sides of Krista’s family showed up and showed out for her school’s fall festival.
.

If you had told me three years ago, this would be our reality, I wouldn’t have believed you.
.

Three years ago, we lacked trust and respect. We didn’t communicate (at least not effectively). We worked against each other instead of together. It was high-conflict and it caused me immense anxiety.
.

Our relationship has evolved in so many ways, it has been a remarkable journey. Admittedly, some days are better than others. We still disagree, we aren’t perfect. But I’m damn proud of us & how far we've come. - Kristen @stepmomming
.

High-conflict blending requires so much more energy, determination, and fortitude especially from those brave enough to join the "fun". The learning curve is steep & littered with explosives but that does not mean it's an impossible goal.
.

Progress can be frustratingly slow (and your hair might turn white) and it feels like forever to get to a place that resembles security and trust, but it's still better than never arriving at all.
.

In our opinion, reaching this point after such a rough start is like winning a Nobel Peace Prize and is a lauding testament to the character of the parents involved.👏 Take care of each other. #thecoparentingcollective

Pain has to be acknowledged, felt, and dealt with. It can’t be ignored and it can’t be rushed through. Allow yourself the time you need to heal. You will get to the other side of pain. #dang #thatsreal #ivedoneboth #okay #letsdothisright #faceit #letitheal #aslongasittakes #moralrevolution

I’ve been through so much. More than anyone fully appreciates. Years of pain, stress and heartache. Years of dealing with situations that would’ve broken others. I’ve come to a place where I refuse categorically to settle for second best. If I have to wait for the right person for a month, six months, two years- I will wait. I’m not going to settle just so that I’m not on my own. I’ve been there, done that and got the T-shirt. And, every time I did, I ended up with the wrong person for me. I know I deserve better. Hells bells, I deserve the best. Yes, I’m ready to open my heart, but that doesn’t mean I’ll accept just anyone. Whoever comes into my life has to be a certain kind of special ❤️ #notsettling #ideservethebest #aslongasittakes #nomoresecondbest

Next week, I will walk for the nearly 700,000 children who attend public schools in Oklahoma. I’ve been blessed to call almost 350 of those children “my kids” over the past 14 years.

I will walk for my own two babies and their teachers who pour their hearts into their students each day.

I will walk for my beloved Norman colleagues, fellow Oklahoma teachers, and hardworking Support Staff who STILL are not able to give up their second jobs.

I will walk so that the college students who will graduate with teaching degrees in May just might consider staying in Oklahoma.

I will walk for the retired teachers who committed their lives to children and endured these hardships far longer than they ever should have had to.

I dream of an Oklahoma public education system that shines. That actually ATTRACTS teachers and families from other states. That doesn’t carry the reputation of “this is the best we could do.” If you’re an Oklahoma teacher, parent, or student, I hope to see you at the capitol.
