HA! After this picture was taken, I randomly injured my knee in the most random way.💥
It all of a sudden reminded me how thankful & grateful IAM for my working body. 👤🌎
I can be mobile with my legs, hug people with my arms, breath in my environment with my lungs, & I even intentionally put my body through pain in order to make it stronger. 💪🏼💥🌱
Today you have a body. You’re alive. It works. 🙏🏼 Not all are so lucky. But today... today you are. ☀️👣 🍀 #wereealive#luckytobealive#wehavetoday
When you settle, you diminish your worth, you betray your values, you please others at the expense of your well-being, you lower your standards to accommodate others...The list goes on, but you get the point.
At one time or another, many of us have fallen victim to settling. The good news is it’s never too late to make a change. You always have the power to change whatever it is you want to change. You may have settled for mediocrity in the past but that’s the old you. The new you knows better, and your future deserves better. No more sabotaging your happiness, no more settling for less, no more always craving more than you are being offered. Know when you are being devalued and be willing to be patient for Mr. Right. 😘❤️💯
ONE BIG THANKS TO UNIVERSE✨
Thanks for all your strange and beautiful ways you're finding to feed my soul.
Thanks for the eyes you gave me, so I can see all the beauty you create here, on Earth.
There's nothing more beautiful and fascinating than the nature!
Thanks for the health, thanks for the beauty, thanks for the life!

According to Dr. Glasser and his Choice Theory all behavior is purposeful. All we do is behave and almost all behavior is chosen. We are driven by our genes to satisfy five basic needs:
2. love and belonging,
4. freedom and
Out of those five, survival is let’s say the basic one and I believe survival is self-explicatory.
But today I will go into further details about LOVE & BELONGING.
It includes the need for relationships, social connections, to give and receive affection and to feel part of a group. In practice, it turns out the most important need is love and belonging, as closeness and connectedness with others we care about is a requisite for satisfying all of the needs. 👉🏼 Fact: All long-lasting psychological problems are relationship problems. 👉🏼 Therefore, working on ourselves - because we can only change ourselves - to have more satisfying and healthier relationships is extremely important.

I do not give this man enough love, enough attention, enough physical touch, enough credit. Quite frankly I don’t do enough of anything that would ever equate to be deserving of any of the love that he gives me day in and day out. He sees my struggles and says “I’m here”, he helps me stand on my own two feet on days when it honestly is unbearable, he knows that I can’t give him everything and yet here is he. I don’t know what I did in life to deserve such an incredible partner in my life but I feel like I will forever be indebted to have found my soul mate in this lifetime. He is selfless and so often times he makes up for my lacking parts. I know as people in a relationship ideally we both come as two whole people, not halves or quarters, but I also know that the reality of that happening all the time isn’t very often. My hope is that I can be exactly what he is to me, for him, when the time comes that he can’t stand on his own two feet. Every day he motivates me to be a better version of myself, he encourages it yet loves me through my lows. I’m so grateful to have found my match. My hope is have that exceptional marriage and relationship despite our struggles that everyone hopes to have someday. We surely aren’t perfect, but we are working on it #gratitude#spouse#husband#husbandandwife#risetogether@matteo_estell
Here’s a testament to the #PowerofPrayer Yesterday I asked for prayers for 17-year-old Jadon Olsen who was hit in the head by two tree limbs as he was trying to clear the road so his neighbors could evacuate during #hurricaneflorence His mother and I became friends in 2008 when I had my #breastcancer website. Jadon suffered a cracked skull, bleeding and swelling in the brain. It was a miracle they kept him alive long enough to transport him to not one, but two hospitals, during this terrible hurricane, Doctors performed surgery and removed part of his skull. He’d been unconscious for 6 days and on a ventilator. People all over the country have been praying for Jadon. This morning he sat up on the side of his bed. Now tell me you don’t believe in God and the power of prayer. I know it frightens some people because I was one of those people for most of my life, but I have no doubt there is a God. Thank you, God. Thank you all for your prayers. Please continue to pray for Jadon. He’s wearing a helmet to protect his brain until they can do surgery to replace the piece of his skull. This photo is his sister Mimi high-fiving him this morning!! #godisgreat#gratitude#makelifecount#whatareyouwaitingfor#xoxoBrenda#1010ParkPlace
The many faces of coaching... Happy #fridayintroductions y’all! Some random facts about me right now: ✨I am currently obsessed with this golden fall yellow. I bought my couch in this color and it keeps calling me name! (More on that in another post) ✨ My kids are way too obsessed with Dr. Pepper. Vanilla Dr Pepper from Sonic is my absolute favorite but I can’t drink it anymore well bc it’s acid haha! ✨ I rearrange my bedroom every two months or so. I don’t know why but I have a feeling it’s from watching my momma do it for 17 yrs to our living room 😜✨I’m a little burned out by social media these days since it seems like everyone is trying to hard to “seem” authentic without actually “being” authentic and it has my soul wanting to shake some people and be like “just actuallllly be you!” ✨ My company is called Not a Basic Life (meaning I haven’t lived a boring or uneventful life) but I am as basic as they come... I have all the pumpkin spice shit right now: candles, drinks, decorations! Just waiting to find a reason to wear my plaid scarf and knee boots!! But, Texas 🤷🏻♀️ ✨ I’m find myself swearing a lot these days and while I’m sure ill back off at some point it’s literally a form of therapy (like my therapist actually said it’s good for me;) so I’m rolling with that shit until I lose enough followers and then maybe I’ll chill. ✨ Lastly, I used to make fun of the term “life coach” until it literally became my job only by miracles of God and the most supportive humans one can imagine pushing me through my insecurities and imposter syndrome to now literally be lead to tears almost daily by the work Im now humbled and honored to do solely based on referrals because I haven’t had to market myself. ✨Thank you for spending your Friday with me, I would love to know one thing (or 5) about you! ✌🏻🖤 Candid photo courtesy of my love @sinjinhilaski
I wanted to take a second to say how great this man here is. Does he drive me crazy sometimes? Absa-freekin-lutley!
But, this man is priceless. He's an amazing partner and friend. I've watched him grow and change while changing the lives around him for the better. He shows me by example that it's ok to admit when you're wrong, friendships are something to treasure (not fear), and that excessive amounts of garlic aren't a bad thing😋
You're a great man @goldysharpe, and that will never change. Don't you doubt it

Client spotlight! Jen is crushing her program. Now, when I say that, I mean she is open and honest about how well she's sticking to the plan. We talk about failure often bc it means we are pushing our limits. SEEK FAILURE! You will be a winner! She is a warrior and doing the best she can while managing her family. Keep it up girl!
Btw, she leg pressed 310lbs and only weighs 120lbs!

I N THE W O O D 🌲🐿
Aujourd’hui je me suis réveillée avec une drôle de sentation. Je n’ai fais que regarder la date, toute la journée avec l’impression d’oublier quelque chose, un événement, un anniversaire peut être, je ne sais pas.
J’ai vu les feuilles mortes tombées et je me suis rappellée.
Que c’était simplement l’equinoxe d’automne. Ça m’a fait sourire car c’est juste une journée ordinaire finalement.
Un premier matin d’automne qui paraît ressembler à tous les autres matins.
Les journées vont commencées à raccourcir et l’air à souffler dans nos cheveux.
Alors il est tant laissez tomber tout ce qui est mort en nous, ce qui n’a plus lieu d’être. Laissez partir les échecs essuyés, les difficultés qui ont pu arriver.
C’est un nouveau cycle, une nouvelle page qui s’offre à nous avec tout ce qui en découle. C’est un jour idéal pour regarder la vie sous un nouveau regard.
Poser de nouvelles intentions, rêver encore plus grand, prendre de nouvelles routes.
Qu’avez vous récoltez cette été, que voulez vous plantez à nouveau ? 🌸Qu’avez-vous à laisser s’envoler pour renaître en plus beau? 🕊
Aujourd’hui est un jour ordinaire mais pas tant que cela. Aujourd’hui était le matin d’un jour nouveau, sous la douceur de l’automne🍁🍂💫 _______________________________________________________
Today is World Gratitude Day! Days of gratitude have a special place in our hearts. ❤️ We are so thankful for the love and support of friends, family, our Turkey Team, our retailers, and all those who spread the word of the bird!

To lots of eating next weekend 🎂 🐷
