In just a few weeks big things are to change and I'm doing it all for these 3. They are my biggest supports and have my back 100%. So thankful and blessed to see them every night and to have gone through everything that I have. Finally things are starting to turn around and I'm so ready to build my future with only these kids. #nervousandstressedaf#kidsaremylife#donewiththebs
A Happy Dental 🦷 Visit! Isn’t it great when you walk out of a doctor’s office with no tears?!
This is one happy 😁 little boy! He got this from the dentist’s prize box! Love this big smile! #notears#momofboys#happy
🌸Aren’t We Too Hard On Ourselves Sometimes Or Too Often?!🌸 Life is too short!
If we don’t get through that pile of laundry in one day, make the perfect lunch for our kids, or help our kids create the perfect school project...It’s okay!
Perfect doesn’t exist!
Just do the the BEST you can! You’re a Superhero no matter what! #mompreneur#boymom#instaboostheeler ❤️Our kids will still love us anyway!❤️
This sweet boy of mine left today to head back to school. I want my kids to live their lives to the fullest, but my heart hurts a little every time they leave. Prayers for a safe and uneventful drive. My heart drove away today.
Best nine of 2018! I keep waiting for the desire to make some goals for 2019, but I haven’t stopped basking in the glow of the last year. Lots of change, lots of growth, lots of awesome. December came fast at the heels of our 5 week road trip. Then my college finals, Christmas, New years, and Corey and I are leaving on one more adventure in 2 days. All I can say is that this year has filled me up with love for my husband and children, i will never regret the time we have chosen to spend with them this year. Corey and I will both treasure it forever! #familiesareforever#2018rocked#stillgoing#ilovemyhusband#kidsaremylife
The reason I started this journey. My kids.
They are my life, my world, my everything.
I love getting my kids ready for bed after their bath. Knowing that I am not putting anything on their skin that can harm them in any way.
Use what God gave us.
Not what was altered.
~~2018~~ The year I was blessed with the time to begin to pursue my dream. I have worked hard but it hasn't felt like work at all. Drawing and painting is a slow, time consuming process but now looking back I am so pleased with all I have achieved.
These are some of my favourites.
Well I certainly have plenty of ~~ gratitude~~, whether it makes my art great I don't know. It does help me feel happy though. Looking back over the last year I feel so grateful to all those on and off Instagram who have encouraged me with my work. My wonderful husband who makes sure I have the time to do it, my friends who make it clear they believe in me and most of all my gorgeous children who have inspired so many pieces.
You were born to do so much more than work, pay bills, and count calories.
If you died tomorrow, would you be satisfied knowing that you never missed a workout, never touched a slice of pizza, got up at crack of dawn to get in your fasted cardio, counted calories all through the holidays, ate your chicken and asparagus standing up at the kitchen island while your kids sat at the table eating their mashed potatoes....
There is so much more to life than this ☝🏼
You were not meant to “grind” for the rest of your damn life. Maybe that’s YOUR thing, but as a mother of four - I enjoy taking a break from it all. Remember the days before we had kids and we thought life revolved around the gym and giving it ONE HUNDRED AND TEN PERCENT (insert manly grunting and a flex...)
Let’s all laugh 😂 #nofreetime#kidsaremylife#sleepwhenimdead
Health doesn’t equate to perfect macros and working out 7 days a week.
It starts INSIDE YOU. It starts with with making smarter food choices, and exercising for the HEALTH benefits (heart health, better sleep, better digestion, lower anxiety etc)
And then you need to get your head around the fact that LIFE HAPPENS. You’re going to skip workouts, you’re going to eat things other than chicken and broccoli. How your brain reacts to not giving 110% defines your state of “health”. Do you want to punish yourself instantly when you eat a cupcake? You are not in the right state of mind.
Let’s redefine health.
Let’s learn forgiveness. Forgive ourselves for being human.
A lack of discipline doesn’t make you less of a person. Replace obsessions with smarter choices.
BRB I’m gonna go bake some banana bread with my littles 😘
A sneaky form of pride
Well i would of never thought that self loathing would be prideful.
It turns out that anything that brings the focus on you and only you is prideful whether its positive or negative.
When you talk about you and all you do and how hard youve worked and that no one is ther for you and helps you. The focus becomes oh poor you which in turn in prideful wow.
I've never done anything thinking i was being prideful but i guess i have to be more careful.
Which form of pride do you wrestle with?
What can you do today to be more focused on Good and less focused on you?
I personally did my devotional to try and be closer to what God wants for me and from me.
And in turn hopefully be less prideful.
Children are the greatest imitators so make sure you give them something great to imitate. Everyday people are dying, yes i agree but when you have massacres going on in a country where people don’t even feel safe sending their kids to school anymore now we really have a big problem. Children are the future of tomorrow right? So what we need to do is sacrifice our today so our children can have a better tomorrow. We lose eight children and teenagers every day, so why haven’t we done nothing about this. Did you know that last year 2017 count for school shooting was 65 without the concerts and street shootings. When you look at all the ways children are impacted by gun violence, you realize what a tremendous problem we have here in this country. Why are we as a country worrying more about building a wall to stop people who wants to better themselves and their children future than proctecting this country from our own people who is taking lives like they are in a video games.... #live#love#gunskill#kidsaremylife#priceless#suchanangel#nyc#timessquare#prayforflorida#floridalife@iamluckas *LEAVE A COMMENT ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS PROBLEM*
