When I left my job of 13 years this past summer, it was because I had outgrown this position in many ways. It was time to move on. It was also because I had too much self respect to stay in an abusive, toxic relationship. I chose to set myself free and cut those cords to explore and think about what I want to do with my life. For the first time, I asked myself this question instead of just jumping into the next thing and building up someone else’s dream. I know we only get this one life and although I am still in the idea and exploration stage of this, I am certain that what I want to create in this life has 100% everything to do with empowering our girls to value, respect and love who they are, so they can grow up to be unstoppable in their greatness and self belief. I want them to know and internalize their belief in who they are and what they like about themselves so much so that nothing will prevent them from living their best life and becoming who they are meant to be. These are my girls, and I am setting this example everyday for them and working with them to set these foundational habits, especially when things are not easy and full of changes. I am working to better myself with baby steps each day. This journey of parenthood is a one day at a time for me. In my heart, I know I am doing my best and that is what they deserve. So, here’s to many more posts on this, and for anyone else out there creating what you want in this world, I applaud you!! 👊🏼💜
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
"I have a license plate holder that says, “I’m still hot! It just comes in flashes!”
How cool is that? I simply took something that makes menopausal women miserable and flipped the script. Instead of lamenting about how horrible it is, I found something positive about sweating profusely. That’s what we have to do when we face challenges in life. We can choose to wallow in misery or walk on sunshine!
Try putting a positive spin on a negative situation, it is much easier to come up with solutions. Stinkin’ thinkin’ keeps you stagnant. Change your mind, change your life! "
I usually kick my Monday mornings off with OTF.
It's Hell Week and because of my thyroid condition, I had to sit out. I was pretty set on going anyways (even signed up for multiple classes this week!), but knew I needed to listen to my body (and my hubby!) and "SLOW DOWN." ⚠️
As much as it bothers me to do anything "SLOW", I really should put this sign on my night stand and as my phone wallpaper and... 🤪
Just as the season shifts, it becomes the perfect opportunity for something new. 🍁 Positive changes are exciting! Like changing my hair colour which I had never done before 😍
What do you guys think? 😁
Thank you to my hairdresser @munizamanda_ 🙏
Where we are and where we think we're suppose to be don't always align.
Since life doesn't come with a road map, it's normal to get lost along the way. Remembering you're in control of the journey is key.
If you made a bad choice, learn from it and adjust your course. This is true in the broad sense of life but also in small everyday decisions as well.
Where are your choices leading you? Towards more self confidence? Better relationships? A healthier lifestyle? ...
The decisions are yours. Where will they take you? #focalpointwellness
What are you up to this week?
What’s your commitment to yourself during this week to move forward with your plans in the direction of your goals?
🙋🏻♀️My commitment this week is:
✨to keep improving my relationships (remember that the quality of our lives is also the result of the quality of the closest relationships, personal and professional, we have in our lives?)
✨and keep reaching out to like-minded people - this week I’m attending a small live business meeting with James Wedmore’s group to serve better my clients, friends, families and myself. @jameswedmore -
What about you? Feel free to comment 🌸
I’ve made it this far pumping/breastfeeding I praise you mommas that have done this multiple times❤️
This is my first one where I’ve actually have worked and stuck with it. It’s not an easy job, mentally its exhausting. I’m so grateful I’ve stuck with it, I don’t love to pump but I LOVE #breastfeeding 🙌🏻
This chapter of my life is coming to an end and I’m ready to start weaning Nash. Give me your tips on weaning, I know we are all different not one thing is right but I know moms LOVE to share their opinions 😂
Exactly one year ago yesterday my entire life changed on the drop of a dime. Everything shattered underneath me and it was utterly horrifying. Because of this, I played small for a while, I didn’t believe I was meant for great things. In the past year, that changed and I started stepping into my power and learning to love myself again ✨ I gave myself permission to live a big life!
I just shared my story and what happened a year ago in a live on my Facebook. To hear my story, go send me a friend request (Ashley Holas) and check out my video 💕

What past situations, circumstances, or events are you holding onto that are preventing you from growth?
I’ve faced difficult situations in my business and personal life that have made me feel anxious, overwhelmed, frustrated and stressed out but it’s all a learning experience. I’ve come to realize that the pain of me staying average is the fuel that drives me to continue to move forward and embrace the setbacks.
There will moments when you feel like no one believes in your dream and it seems like the only option is to give up. Don’t let the negative opinions or beliefs of the world stop you from going after what matters to you. You have to tell yourself daily: “I can, I will, I must.” You have ONE life to accomplish your desires, stop wasting time.
Kicked off Red Ribbon week with a visit from JPD! They brought their friends, McGruff and Rocket! Crime fighting dogs! Thank you Officer Racy and Officer Meyers! #lifeisajourney#traveldrugfree#bscs1886
Prosto te život oblikuje tako.
Da nemaš nekad previše vremena za razmišljanje.
Samo stisneš gas.
Ali nikako ne smeš voziti bez razmišljanja.
Što brže voziš, moraš brže da “šaltaš” po mozgu.
Svaki nepromišljeni potez te može odvesti na pogrešan put.
Nisam baš uvek smirene glave.
A to baš i nije dobro pod gasom..
Ali život te tako vozi..
Da nema hoću-neću.
I onda učiš. Svakodnevno.
Život stvarno nekad bira teži put, za neiskvarene ljude.
Da li i ti misliš isto?
Da bi vežbali mozak, a manje telo.
Da pokažu pravu vrednost treninga.
Strpljenje je spasenje!
A spasiti se okolnih negativnih uticaja, velika je stvar i još veće zadovoljstvo kada u tome uspeš!
There is no room for mistakes. No room for failure. No room for doubts and sorrow, for fear and despair, for pain and questions with no answers. There is no room for humanity in our society.
Stop apologising. Being human is nothing to be ashamed of.

Whenever I really enjoy 'the small things' I wonder what made us call them 'small' in the first place...
...when it takes a HUGE amount of freedom to experience them.
...when they are accompanied by GREAT emotions.
...when they have such a BIG impact on our lives.
