A few days ago we were asked to write down what we are committed to creating in our lives and businesses in the next year. Admittedly, that was a harder task than I thought it would be. ⁣
⁣
To do this I had to realize that there is some real room for improvement in my life... and that isn’t a bad thing at all. Hard to admit? Of course. But bad? Nope. In order to grow as people we have to be honest with ourselves and admit when things can be done better or differently. ⁣
⁣
So here it goes, my commitments. ⁣
⁣
I am committed to finding work/life balance. I am committed to spending more quality time with my family. I am committed to helping the amazing people on my team earn the promotions they have been working toward. I am committed to reaching the next level in my business and promoting to Senior Director. I am committed to finding new ways to bring value to my team and my community. I am committed to being honest with myself when I come up short, without putting myself down. I am committed to being real.

My biggest hope for her is that she will always remain true to herself and not let the opinions of others bring her down.
If you could give your childhood self one piece of advice for the future, what would it be?

I’m feeling F I E R C E.
By the way, I got this romper that I wore yesterday from amazon for less than $30. It’s super flattering and will look good on anyone. I call this a win. πŸ‘πŸ»

The first year of breastfeeding a child is so hard, thankfully there’s a lot of love and support given to mommas powering through it!⁣
⁣
Then... you get past that 12 month mark and a lot of that support seems to slow down. Instead the questions and judgment begin. It goes from, β€œwow, you’re still breastfeeding! Good job!” To more of, β€œoh, you’re breastfeeding still...” ⁣
⁣
A magical switch didn’t flip when my daughter turned one that made her just stop wanting to nurse. If anything, she started needing it more and in a different way. ⁣
⁣
She nurses less for nutrition now and instead does it for comfort, when she’s overwhelmed, when she has a bad dream, through growth spurts, and sometimes just for a snack on a busy day. ⁣
⁣
This may not be the cultural norm, but this is our normal and I wouldn’t change it for anything. ⁣
⁣
The natural weaning age for children is between 2-7 years old. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends breastfeeding until up to and beyond 2 years old. It’s a myth that the benefits of breastmilk stop at a certain point, they actually continue and are more significant the longer breastfeeding continues.🀱🏻 ⁣
⁣
So mommas, keep it up. Do what is right for you and your family. If you want to wean, go for it. If you want to keep going, do it! Most importantly, don’t let the opinions of others decide how you feed your child. Breastfeeding is beautiful, natural, and not something to be ashamed of. ❀️⁣

Want to know my secret for being productive? Just get started. Seriously. ⁣
⁣
This weekend I could have easily sat on my butt and done nothing. And don’t ge the wrong, I for sure took time to relax and enjoy myself. ⁣
⁣
But that would have been an incredible waste of my time. We have a list of projects about a mile long that we keep pushing off or not having time to do. But I decided to make time for it this weekend, because it was important to me. ⁣
⁣
We rearranged Lorelei’s room, our room, built legs for our new headboard, hung up shelves in the bathroom, redecorated the bathroom, and deep cleaned the kitchen. ⁣
⁣
If something is important enough to you, you’re going to find the time. ⁣
⁣
With all the love in my heart, I encourage you to stop making excuses as to why you can’t do something and start finding ways to get it done. πŸ™ŒπŸ»

I’ll forever be grateful for this job that allows me to drop everything and go out to eat with my family whenever I want. ⁣
⁣
There’s no asking my boss if I can leave early or take a long lunch. I just say you know what? This is my plan for today and go with it. πŸ™ŒπŸ»β£
⁣
Not everyone loves network marketing and I get that, it has a bad rep from some bad apples. I’m here to tell you that it can be, and is, SO good! ⁣
⁣
It’s given me and my family not only time freedom, but financial freedom as well. ⁣
⁣
I get to spend every day with my two favorite humans and work on my own terms. I’ve formed incredible relationships and friendships with people that I never would have known if it wasn’t for this opportunity. ⁣
⁣
This is without a doubt the best job I have ever had. ❀️

Don’t get me wrong, I love social media. It’s an amazing way to connect and meet people from around the world.

It can also work against you. Some accounts that you follow might make you feel less than or unworthy, and that can definitely take a toll on your self esteem and/or mental health. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
The person behind the account may not even have that intention, truthfully. But if you find yourself looking at someone’s posts or pictures and feeling bad about yourself or feeling sad... unfollow them. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
We are in control of the messages we allow ourselves to see on social media. Be mindful of that and find positive influencers to follow and connect with.

Push yourself everyday, because I can promise you that no one else is going to do it for you. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
YOU are the only one in control of your successes and your failures. And failing isn’t a bad thing. It’s just a step toward your future best self.
