Just lying here, feet up the wall, contemplating where to go from here. I’m stuck in a rut and while my physical health is still a daily struggle, it’s this gloom in my soul that’s hurting the most right now. I’m 32 and I’ve barely done any of the things I’ve wanted to.
Time to examine the bucket list because when the terminal diagnosis comes in, it’s too late. Do it now. Take chances now. Say I love you now. Don’t wait until the end is in sight. Find your happiness. You deserve it ❤️
Today included 4:30 am workout, 3 hours of testing, teaching, tutoring, and then a parent meeting.
I could have come home and been bitter about staying at school until almost 8 but why do that to myself.
Reasons why I’m not mad
1. I had a kick a$$ workout
2. My kids did their best on the test
3. I have some awesome coworkers who made me laugh all day
4. My principal is amazing
5. I had caffeine today🤣
6. I love my jobs
7. I chose joy and happiness today

#SelfAcceptance.. the only thing on point here is my hair... this is me, with no makeup, barely any sleep.. just feeling like I look extremely busted.. 🙃 but the awesome thing about self acceptance is that I don’t care!! 😂🤣 No matter what my appearance is, whether it be busted AF or very well put together, I don’t stress about it.. simply because I don’t care what other people think of me 🤷🏻♀️ Your appearance should be whatever you want it to be! You will be critiqued and criticized by people no matter what! If you’re happy, that’s all that matters!! 💕 #BeYou#BeFearless#Humility#FindHappiness#GoodVibes

So a friend asked me the other day, what the turning point was for me in my decision to live a healthier, happier life. And at first I wasn’t really sure so I tried to give her the best answer I could in the little time that we had. In reality though, the inspiration towards this holistic lifestyle and towards this more mindful me was my son. I’m sure, as a mom, you can relate.
After I had my son, I decided that no matter what, I was going to become the best version of myself for him. While fitness is something I've always been into, holistic nutrition and a more mindful lifestyle is not. I knew how to eat right but that usually went out the door once weekends rolled around. I frequently found myself in "pitty parties" and struggled with expressing my voice and thoughts in a positive way. This of course led to habits that were not flattering and ultimately it led to me deciding that this wasn't how I wanted to live life. I wanted to be happy, more positive, and the healthiest version of me. .
This was not a quick journey and it definitely didn't happen over night. But through this journey I've found just how much our thoughts, behaviors, and diet affect who we are as a person and how we show up in the world. And while I started this “journey” before I got pregnant, I didn’t really focus on the inner work until after he was born. He was that motivation, that turning point, to help me find my ideal version of me.
Did you hit a turning point after having your little one? Drop a ❤️ if they light a spark in you that made you want to be better!
When I quit the photography business, I suddenly found myself looking for...well, myself. Knowing that what society told me to do, being a mom and following what most other women at my age were doing, wasn’t something I wanted to do, I started looking for answers. Who am I and why did I never wanted to be like everybody else? Listening to podcasts and reading books helped me so much on my journey to individual happiness. Have a wonderful Wednesday my friends and I hope you’ll find your way to happiness as well! #reading#philosophy#booksandcoffee#greenandblue#frankfurtschool#whatilearnedtoday#criticaltheory#findhappiness#understandtheworld
Good Afternoon Beautiful 🌸! On Day 10 of the agenda fast, God continues to confirm that character is everything!
Luke 12: 2-3
2 There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 3 What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.
How we act behind closed doors is a big indication of our character.
Luke 12:48 .....From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.
When God entrusts his plan to you, it requires a tremendous amount of character to bring it to pass.
1 Corinthians 13:11
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
What childish behavior needs to go in order for God will to come to pass?

I always wondered what an online coach does and how I can create my own online business. With the help of these women I have the support and accountability to do anything.
I am so grateful I said yes to this opportunity. Want to be part of my #girlsquad and say yes to a new journey. Send me a DM so we can chat.

👏🏾🙏🏾✊🏾10 years ago I never thought I'd be where I'm at now! My only plan was work these jobs while I hope a single I make pops! And it wasn't even a real plan just talk and poor execution. Made plenty poor decisions along the way. And thankful for all those bad choices. Only thought about money and how it would make me happy instead of how happiness can make me money! 🔥💯
So here’s the thing about the #10yearchallenge we are only taking into account vanity—but how we look doesn’t determine how happy or fulfilled we are. I’m happy with my miles—stretch marks from having babies, lack of care for putting makeup on my face because #noeffsgiven and a ball cap. The ‘glamorous’ person I was 10 years ago was deeply sad and angry inside (you can see it in my eyes.) She used makeup to hide who she was...and for God sakes just need (and really wanted to) go eat a damn hamburger 🍔 So here’s to the real difference 10 years can make 🥂 #livingafulllife#fulfillment#livingyourpurpose
It’s WINNING Wednesday!! What can you be thankful for in your life? Where are you WINNING?? ✨🙌🏻✨🙌🏻✨🙌🏻
I grew up sheltered and told what and who to believe. There was always an itch inside me ready to explore. So here I am today finally knowing who I am and what I want in life. ✨🙌🏻🌏✈️
This is where I’m WINNING! I get to do what I love for work! Travel and coach others to love themselves by getting where they need to be physically and emotionally! 🏋🏽♂️🏃🏽♀️👙
I’m not about to let anyone stop me from my true happiness.
Things you can do to find yourself so you can be happy with YOU! 😃
Be WINNING this WEDNESDAY!! ✨🙌🏻
Above all, watch with glittering eyes, the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it. - Ronald Dahl ✨
My family saw a movie over a month ago and they STILL talk about it and the actors and that actor's lives, every time I see them.
They are obsessed with this movie and everyone that had anything to do with it.
As some may know, I am a movie buff. I even make my own indie films.
But I have never understood obsession with something that has NOTHING to do with our own life.
The Romans actually created battles at the coliseum in order to keep the public occupied while the government did tasks they did not want the public to know about.
Some believe sports are the modern-day versions of what the Romans did with the coliseum battles.
I also think media glamorizing celebrities is another case of it.
I understand watching sports and movies and liking certain actors. It's a fun time to have with family/loved ones.
But to fixate on anything that does not care about you, is not a step in the right direction.
I sit with my family wanting to discuss life, art, health, growth, passion.
And all they can do is show one another videos of their favorite actors doing something funny on the red-carpet.
And I just sit there as if I am on the outside looking in, shaking my head at the absurdity of it all.
Here I am wanting to put all of my energy into myself, my ideas, my success, my passions, MY LIFE.
And they consistently focus on giving their time and energy to those that are already successful, leaving no energy or time to dig deep into themselves.
And they often question why their life is such a drag... Think about this next time you fantasize or focus too often on someone that you idolize.
Don't merely love the thought of them.
Ask yourself "why do i love them? What do they have that I don't? How can I get this focused on MYSELF???" This is your way out of the usual rut.
You only have so much energy. It's a waste to give it to someone that doesn't care about you or even knows you exist.
Focus on you. Give to you. Build YOU.
Then you will start to see a whole new layer of life... Worry about those that care and worry about you. If that is only you, then worship yourself. Let the growth BEGIN! Peace and Tranquility, -MarkD💚
Too often I was told to be more girly or that I should wear more makeup or that I should have some kind of extensive beauty routine. I doubted myself, my appearance and so on. But through work, I learned to love my natural self. Then someone called me "foo foo" for the first time because of what I naturally liked doing every now and again for myself, not for anyone else. Today I love me, my looks, my whole being. No thanks to anyone else but me.

One of my intentions in 2019 is to try and provide more free tools and resources to my little internet community here.
I remember a year ago when I was still working my 9 to 5 job, thinking to myself how much I just needed a little extra guidance and direction to know what my next move should be.
I was feeling stuck.
I was feeling confused.
Most prominently, I was feeling scared.
“How could this be all that life is meant to be?”
My goal in 2019 is to make this journey easier for those of you still in this place that I was not too long ago. And so, I am working away here to serve you better.
If you haven’t accessed my already existing library of free resources, head to the link in my bio and stay tuned for some soon to come new releases.
with love & light,

Do you find yourself questioning what the hell you’re still doing in that job that doesn’t make you happy? Looking at those around you who seemingly have it all figured out, appearing happy and content with their lives?⠀
Let me tell you a secret: You can’t see behind other people’s beautiful outside facades. They may be happy - they may not. It’s not really your problem.⠀
But here’s the real secret: ⠀
IT IS YOUR LIFE.⠀
If YOU are not happy, then that's what counts. And since it's YOUR life, YOU are in charge and can make a change.⠀
Easier said than done, right? So, what's the next step? ⠀
If you ask me, I’d invite you to feel into your heart. Look back into your childhood. What used to bring laughter and joy into your life? ⠀
Was it spending time outside, being in nature, playing with friends, making music, exploring insects, building lego houses, losing yourself in books,...?⠀
Was there something you'd always wanted to try or become, but your parents didn't let you or you felt like you'd disappoint them if you went in this direction?⠀
Explore all of this further. You don’t need to turn your whole life around right now. Maybe it’s enough to invite one of these aspects back into your life to feel happier and more balanced! ⠀
Can you make time to walk through a park, smell a flower, meet up with friends, join a choir, visit the museum of Natural History, explore lego for grown-ups, read before bed time,...? ⠀
Choose whatever feels good, expansive and exciting! Give it a try - all it takes is the first step. ⠀
If you’re courageous, let me know what you chose in the comments and I'll cheer you on!⠀
I for one have recently joined a Creative Writers’ group. It’s one hour of writing and another hour of reading out our work (if we want to), chatting and connecting. Coming together this way is so inspiring and up-lifting. ⠀
I’ve always been fascinated by all kind of artists and creative people - realising that now I’m one of them feels so good!⠀
Let me know, how it goes. I’m rooting for you. ⠀
I'm debating with myself on whether I'm ready to take my measurements now or if I want to wait until I break the 200 lb mark. I know they are going to be all weird on my abdomen and that's what is discouraging me at the moment, but I know it will help me see the changes better. Also, moving forward I will only be weighing myself on Wednesdays. The constant checks are discouraging to me since weight fluctuates from day to day, and even throughout the day.
My mostly healthy breakfast. I decided I wanted kolaches this morning along with my grapefruit with Himalayan salt and my avocado with mixed peppercorn and citron sea salt flakes. My coffee has no sugar this morning, just milk and my Greens and I'm loving it!!! Who knew that Greens could make me a healthier coffee drinker!
By the way, did you know that you can keep half an avocado from going brown in your refrigerator by leaving the seed in it? No more wasted avocado halves or having to eat the whole thing just because you don't want it spoiling! 😄 I know, I know some of you are saying what leftover avocado half 🥑 and I get you, I don't always have a leftover half either. 😉
Message me if you'd like to talk about the products I have that can help you on your #transformationjourney.
