When summer 2019 tries to personally victimize you but you still come out alright 👅

✌🏽👅✨

What’s up! What’s been going on friends 😄 How’s your summer? What you been doing? Let me know in the comment below I’d love to hear what you’ve been working on! ✨

Sometimes when you fall, you fly ✨

Spend more time with my friends I ain't worried 'bout nothin' Plus, I met someone else We havin' better discussions I know they say I move on too fast But this one gon' last 'Cause her name is Mandey 👅 And I'm so good with that She taught me love ❤️ She taught me patience 🙏🏽 How she handles pain 💪🏽 That shit's amazing 🔥 I've loved and I've lost But that's not what I see 'Cause look what I've found Ain't no need for searching, and for that, I say… #thankyounext

a list of what I’ve come to realize recently… ► accepting yourself for who you truly are, flaws and all is the most attractive thing you can do ► setting boundaries is a form of self respect and without them, people don’t respect you ► we can only set boundaries if we know who we are, and what we really want ► how we feel and what’s best for us can be two completely different things ► awareness and vulnerability to admit your mistakes is first step and only way to healing/growth ► if you think you know everything, you’ll never learn anything new and that is a definite way to failure ► the difference between humility and guilt is understanding that our mistakes are not wrong while also taking responsibility for them ► in order to be selfless we first must be selfish in our personal growth and understanding ► how you feel and what someone else deserves are also two very different things
. . i’m starting to dig deep into who i really am and what that actually means… so many of us want success, we want to be “happy” - but what does that look like? how do you treat others if you’re truly loving? how do we communicate boundaries if we’re being confident? if you want to be a compassionate person what does being compassionate towards others look like… specifically? . . and how do you bridge that gap between who you want to be and how you’re acting? have you ever considered that we feel stuck because we don’t know who we are and what we really want? because there’s a conflict between who we think we think we should be and who we really are? what are you really afraid of? why are you holding on so tightly? what’s really holding you back from being the person you want to be? . . “unmask your sadness and you will find anger. unmask your anger and you will find pain. unmask your pain and you will find joy… most people forget they are wearing a mask to begin with” and this is where the healing begins….

“I hope you have gotten sufficiently tired of hitting the snooze button; I know that what you need or need to activate in yourself will appear.⁣ ⁣ I pray that your awakening comes with ease and grace, and stamina when the going gets hard.⁣ ⁣ To love yourself 𝐚𝐬 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐫𝐞 is a 𝐦 𝐢 𝐫 𝐚 𝐜 𝐥 𝐞, and to seek yourself is to have found yourself, for now. And now is all we have, and 𝐋𝐎𝐕𝐄 is who we are.”⁣ ⁣ #selflove ❤️

I am focusing my energy 𝓃𝑜𝓉 on fighting the old, but building the new ✨#letgoandletgod

Yesterday was incredible.. I wish we could go back 😭❤️

if you sit really still and learn to quiet your mind you will find ✧magic✧ in the smallest of moments

i’ve been reaching for God… asking Him . to please help me see myself the way He sees me - i want to look in the mirror and see myself the way God sees me and that’s what i’ve been praying for . and over the weekend, i fell apart to come together ✨🙏🏽 . my eye lashes fell out, i ripped my clothes, i scrapped my bum, and my nails all broke… i mean seriously how do 6 out of 10 of your nails with DIP manicure break into tiny shards?! (i was going to blame the lady who did my nails but it’s not her fault) . and then i realized… . He did this for me! . i don’t need nails, long eye lashes, cute clothes, a nice bum lol none of this claims any of my worth . our value is not in our appearance or the things that we have . it’s in how He sees us… it’s in how we see ourselves . and nothing that we have or can buy determines our value . so when you look in the mirror what do you see? because i know He does not see you as ugly, broken, messed up, or a failure… He sees you as you are . perfectly imperfect and completely, beautifully accepted.. you are B L E S S E D even through your trials . just wanted to remind you how worthy you really are ❤️

Every great adventure comes with battle wounds... 😹 swipe to see mine

there are so many people (mostly women) in my life that i find constantly apologizing to me and every time i say… “why are you sorry?” with typically no response… you wanted to take a nap and be alone you were busy you didn’t feel like doing anything you were driving you were drained that day you didn’t feel like talking whatever the reason - stop being sorry! you are always accepted to be perfectly imperfect! no apology necessary! i gotchu ❤️✨

Just living is not enough - one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower 🌸

If you don’t make me smile so big I have a double chin, we can’t hang 😁😂

imagine if you had everything in your life you ever wanted, that your excuses were 𝘯𝘰 𝘭𝘰𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘳 𝘷𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘥… . could you EVEN IMAGINE who you would 𝙗𝙚? . ✘ what if you had millions of dollars in the bank, you could never use the excuse of “i don’t have the money”, again ✘ what if you had every day to yourself to do what you wanted, you couldn’t keep telling people, “i don’t have time” ✘ what if you had both the time and the money aka the resources you needed to figure anything out, you would no longer be able to say, “i don’t know how…” . is it scary to think that those things are even possible for you? how many of you read the first line and thought, “yeah i’ll never have a million dollars”? or maybe you had a thought that said, “but i really 𝘥𝘰𝘯'𝘵 have any time” . pay attention to these 𝙣𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙮 𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙡𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝𝙩𝙨 - they tell you a lot about who you think you are… but they’re not who you REALLY are . pushing yourself to find the time, to find the resources is the only way to break free of your limits . and even better, don’t look at your situation as something you have to PUSH yourself into… rather, look at it as your CALLING . if it’s EXCITING to think about the possibilities, 𝙮𝙤𝙪'𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙧𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙚! your heart is what knows whats good for you, your head does not . every time an excuse is made for why you can’t, you’re keeping yourself stuck and reinforcing your negative core beliefs . we need to RISE to the occasion… so find the time, find a way! . you KNOW you’re capable, you know you’re creative, you’re resourceful, you’re driven, you’re a hard mf worker - i know you are . one of the hardest parts of life to me so far is having to let go of who i 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩𝘵 i was in order to be 𝙬𝙝𝙤 𝙞 𝙩𝙧𝙪𝙡𝙮 𝙖𝙢 . if you’re being called to an occasion, if something exciting is presenting itself, TAKE THE PATH! you’re being called to it for a reason ✨✨✨

#morningpages . June 28th, 2019 . “I just want to go - LIVE - without questioning if I’m doing the right thing. I want to get so in touch with who I really am that I never have to wonder if what I’m doing is right because it will always be right to listen to my true self.”

how to get back into F L O W✨✨ . i can’t lie lately i’ve been feeling pretty down on my creativity feeling like a SHIFT is coming (which it is) but lately i… . 𝘅 am no longer inspired by what used to light me up 𝘅 i second guess what i create before posting (if it even gets posted) 𝘅 i have lower energy levels 𝘅 i feel alone… like i’m in my own world 𝘅 i’m going though the motions w/out great results . this my friends is called… being OUT OF ALIGNMENT with your highest self . ride the wave, feel the feels, and know that everything is showing up FOR you . life is like a puzzle, and if you’re anything like me… you wanna figure shit out ASAP 😆 . here are a few things i’ve done recently to get back into alignment and into my F L O W state✨ . ⊖ i made my tasks FUN i jumped into activity challenges with some buddies, switched up my activity, and made it a game to see how fast i could finish it . ⊖ i set an INTENTION instead of working on auto pilot, i set a clear intention behind my actions which made showing up much more PURPOSEFUL . ⊖ i ACKNOWLEDGED my feelings just write that shit out onto paper and get it out of your head!! STOP suppressing . ⊖ i prioritized SELF CARE listen to your body, eat right, set boundaries, reach out to people who you can trust . the more things you can say “YES" to that will shake up your routine, the more chances you’ll have to get UNSTUCK . which one of these above resonated with you the MOST? 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽❤️
