I don’t take as many #selfies
as I used to; I am getting older and my skin is not as supple or youthful as it used to be. I don’t photograph the way I used to; I am a woman now, not the cute twenty something or even thirty something I used to be. But hey 👋🏼 #iamalive
and my #wrinkles
are signs of life well lived. The scars I have on my body from surgeries are not attractive but badges of survival. I want to live this #blessedlife
No matter the obstacles thrown at me - I love ❤️ my life and I have a lot more living to do and a lot more to learn. #healthiswealth #lovemyscars #wrinkles #wellworn #youknowjacques
“Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun.” - Don Miguel Ruiz
"Baby, just be grateful and shut up" is what she said to me when I resisted her doing something nice for me this weekend. 😶
You ever find it hard to accept contribution from others?
Like you'd rather just "work hard" and do it yourself than to let someone help you.
Well... there's nothing noble in trying to do it all yourself.
You'll just end up moving slowly, being stuck, and/or feeling alone.
Plus, if someone is genuinely giving you something, your saying no is kinda effed up.
Luckily, my girl stays checking me. Forcing me to break these old patterns!

Friends are important, wouldn’t you agree? 🙋♀️🤣
Pengkhotbah 9:10 (TB) Segala sesuatu yang dijumpai tanganmu untuk dikerjakan, kerjakanlah itu sekuat tenaga, karena tak ada pekerjaan, pertimbangan, pengetahuan dan hikmat dalam dunia orang mati, ke mana engkau akan pergi. #bibleverse #tuesdaymorning #blessedlife
After all the snow stopped late last night I think we ended up with a little over a foot. It was nice to finally get to stay home and clean up things around here for a change we are so blessed. My wifey even got the day off! Let it snow!!!

Thank you for never giving up on me, for holding me up when my good luck seems to run out, thank you loving me through my bad days and even more on my good days. Thank you for lifting the weight off of my shoulders when I can’t carry it any longer. I wouldn’t be half the person I am today without you. You will forever be my always and so much more. #mcm #foreverandalways #mypersonalhero #mylifeline #blessedlife #iloveyou
I think sometimes our bodies are trying to tell us things and we just often don't listen. I started not feeling very well yesterday and today, the same. I just don't feel like I normally do.
I could ignore it and push through today, but I've decided to take it easy today and listen to my body. It's obviously telling me that I need a little breather. I've been busy and that's the beauty of having my own business- I can take it a bit easier when I need to.... and today, I do!
I was thinking about all the times I was at a job not feeling well, or rushing a recovery time, or just flat out sick. Not having to do that anymore is truly a blessing. Some of the newer coaches on my team have been able to take better care of themselves too. Even though they're just getting their business off the ground, what's cool is that they've created enough wiggle room in their finances so that if they DO have to take unpaid time off, it's not a strain or stressor on their family! I LOVE THAT!
Today, I'm taking some time to stretch, I'm going to have a light work day, eat well, drink a lot of fluids, and rest up!
How's your Monday going today??? Oh and definitely see if you can spot my Griffin in the pic!

First Winter in NC.....the #boatlife
isn't always the luxury everyone thinks. It has challenges that no other life has but that you wouldn't change for the world. Docks sunk, boats got trapped, paddle boarding to get to land with Huckleberry for 2 days and no power, neighbor had 10 inches of water in the hull....but theres a community like no other, one that comes together in times of need, neighbors most people could only dream of having. A life that brings so much joy and appreciation for the attitude of gratitude you should have everyday. In a season of spending and gift giving, the realization about how precious everyday is and how quick things can change I'm grateful for those around me. #couldntdoitwithoutyou #lakewylie #blessedlife #winteronthelake #lakelife
Oh I miss This kind of breakfast...
Nasi ponggol for lyfe.😜😜😜
Nasi Ponggol adalah nasi yang dibungkus daun pisang dengan lauk sambal goreng tempe. Bagi orang Tegal, Nasi Ponggol identik dengan menu sarapan pagi karena mereka punya kebiasaan makan Nasi Ponggol pada pagi hari. Ponggol sendiri menurut masyarakat asli Tegal maksudnya adalah wadahnya terbuat dari daun dan pincuknya dikunci dengan dua lidi dibagian kanan dan kiri. Ada satu lauk utama yang harus ada pada kuliner ini yaitu sambal goreng tempe atau ada juga yang menyebut orek tempe. Tempe ini diolah pedas bersantan yang dimasak hingga kering seperti orek tempe. Sebelum tempe diolah menjadi sambal goreng, tempe terlebih dahulu dipotong-potong bentuk dadu kemudian dijemur di bawah panas matahari selama satu hari. Konon karena cara inilah yang membuat olahan sambal goreng mempunyai cita rasa yang khas.
Kalo mau tau rasanya musti dtg langsung ke tegal tapi jgn lupa ajak aku yaa❤️😂😂 #ceritategal #tegalcity #tegalbahari #nasiponggol #happinessishere #blessedlife
😇 The absolute highlight of the week was Sawyer and Malorie getting their own endowments in the Holy Temple of our Heavenly Father! 🤩❤️ We believe this sacred ordinance is vital to our eternal spiritual progression.
To enter the temple, a person must be found worthy. In this day and age I think that’s somewhat of a miracle. 🙏🏻 It is definitely not by accident any youth are clean & worthy it is by sacrifice, deliberate thoughts & actions, pure and virtuous. 👍
Every single one of us on the planet makes mistakes. 😞That is where the atonement of Jesus Christ comes in. 😅 Through the atonement we can each be forgiven and use the Lord‘s grace in our lives. What a beautiful gift. 🎁 Please unwrap it! #forgiven #itsabigdeal #lovethesepeople #twinfallstemple #lighttheworld #eternalblessings #progression #lds #blessedlife
OFFICIALLY ONE MONTH POST-OP! The last month has been one crazy ride, but through it all one thing remains... my God is so good! He saw me through one of the toughest trials of my life thus far, blessed me with an amazing family who was by my side every hour of every day, and provided me with some of the very best friends. To everyone who prayed, who reached out, who visited, or sent gifts... please know how much you are loved and how much you mean to me ❤️❤️❤️. And a huge shoutout to @kellyannematthews
and her incredible @tumorhater
