I love it when you call me sunshine 💛
. . .
Every day I’m humbled to help people. To get them out of bed in the morning. To make them feel strong in their bodies. To hear their stories. To let them sweat out their frustrations. I’ve lived many lives and all I’ve ever wanted was to bring a little light to the world. Wrapping up another work week feeling pretty damn grateful that I get to 🙏🏻. #gybstrength #gillianyoungfit
FOCUS ✨ Nothing stands in your way when you’re focused. Bring all of your focus into the weekend and help us celebrate turning 3️⃣ tomorrow!! Don’t forget to wear RED!! 🎈
Making Christmas cards for our friends in Uganda has been an annual tradition since the first year of PY! This year we had 500 cards to do, and we could not have done it without the help of all our friends who came out to The Copper Petal last night! Thank you to my family, friends, sisters and new friends! PY wouldn't be where we are today without the love and support of everyone! Thank you! Merry Christmas! #projectyesu #uganda #feed #love #serve #educate #empower

“A calling is work that you view as integral to your identity and meaning in life, an expression of who you are that gives you a feeling of fulfillment and meaning.” - Shawn Achor
I just returned from Cincinnati, where I met with with my business mentor, Sam Crowley. He is the host of the Everyday is Saturday Podcast, and he is amazing!
As I pursue my calling in life, I realized over the last several months, that you cannot make big changes in your life on your own. You need to surround yourself with people that are going to help and support you in your efforts.
I used to believe I could do everything on my own, without any help from others. Well, that was the story I created and repeatedly told myself based on things that happened over the course of my life. Over the last several months I have let that story go, and it has been truly a very rewarding experience surrounding myself with people who inspire me everyday.
What is your calling? Who do you know that inspires and supports you to following your passion in life?

This brave beauty won Miss Rockbridge Elementary 2018. We met over 3 years ago & throughout her journey I have seen her confidence grow vastly. Today it was worth fighting through the flu symptoms I currently have to sit & hear of her progress this semester. Everything in my body ached this morning & while sweating profusely did not help while doing my make up, this moment was worth it all. When asked why I would risk getting even more sick to come speak to a group of students the only thought that could come to mind was “if I had to film or do a photoshoot on today, being sick would not stop me.” What I do in life is so much bigger then me, if your dream is only about buying a fancy house, obtaining wealth to prove people wrong or just about yourself, I would say you aren’t even living. Do society a favor and dream bigger then yourself. #gotHOPE #giveback #empower #uplift #inspire #unite #encourage
Just a friendly reminder....

S U R V I V I N G⠀
Survivor's will often be plagued with guilt and shame after they experience a traumatic event. This is a result of faulty societal messages about trauma, in which survivor’s efforts are challenged and they are blamed for their own assault.⠀
When people ask questions like, "What were you wearing?" or "Why were you out alone?" they send the message to survivors that they could have prevented their attack or stopped the traumatic event from occurring. The reality is, the only reason survivors are victimized is because someone else victimized them, and in fact, nothing the survivor did ever justifies what happened to them.⠀
We must stop asking questions that reinforce victim blaming, and we must start believing survivors, each and every time. The only thing we can hope for from a survivor, is survival. If someone survives something horrific happening to them, then we must only support them through their healing journey, and remind them that their trauma is not their fault. ⠀
Survivors, I see you, and I am so glad you have survived, and can begin to heal.⠀

The flu is rampant in our household, which means sweats, laundry, snuggles, ramen noodles, catching vom, (yes I have had the contents of my daughters stomach in my hands in the last 24hrs) trying to stay hydrated, & lots of bleach. Woohoo. 🤮🤮🤮🤮
My heart is so full, y’all.
This week I was honored to go back and spend a couple days at our Home Office in Fort Wayne with these amazing women as we were celebrated for our recent promotion with @matildajaneclothing
. Not just that, but we were provided some phenomenal training to help us move forward with our businesses providing the best care (and obviously clothing!) 😉 to our growing teams and customers!
I could go on all day about how this was an all-expense paid trip (because that’s how much our Home Office believes in and supports us!) or about all the amazing and thoughtful gifts we got, or dinner with our CEO, lunch with our Designer, as all those things are wonderful, however I choose to brag on the very foundation of Matilda Jane that is still being carried out. Denise’s (our Founder) generous heart implementing ways to always give back to her community and communities world-wide and her goal to spread that mission. Of always keeping little girls little by providing them the best quality of clothing to spin and twirl around in— clothing that is modest, unique, whimsical, and trendy. Clothing that makes us as women and our children feel beautiful, helps them find their own style, and helps families all over the world create special memories in their pieces.💖 Yes, I love to be spoiled, and our Home Office does a great job of that and I’m so thankful, but I’m so so proud to be a part of something bigger than me. A generous company that believes the best in others, provides the most amazing product, and allows us to grow and thrive and provides opportunities like this to do so. ✨Be the light that helps others see.✨AW
This week I couldn’t quite grasp how I’ve gotten here, to feeling excited about so many things, speaking out about what I need, feeling hopeful in all potential. I remember the other side of it and I feel like I’ve figured out this secret that I need to scream out. To you. Not just those lost but those who “just wanna be better”. Not just the depressed but the “I could be more fulfilled”. Not just the torn open but the “i didn’t even know I needed that”. Those micro steps lead somewhere. Not to perfection but betterment. In your moment of being lost, I’m excited for all the possibilities that exist. In your sadness, I’m excited for all the happiness to come. In your life of chaos, I’m excited for the first time you feel peace. You are capable of being here and I promise every ounce of effort will get you here...
I just needed to say this. Yinz are the best.
I had so much fun at my team Happy Hour last night. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. Eureka! 🤣🤣🤣 If you are local and want to join us we would love to have you come.

my new obsession when it comes to shower 🚿 time. @olay
has created a foam body wash and it’s sooooo silky. It’s literally like whipped cream 😝 I was on the fence cause I was like I use a ALOT of wash 🧼 BUT a little goes a long way & don’t worry your skin feels conditioned as well after the rinse. I chose the birch lavender 🌳 which smells so good and relaxing 😌 & of course you can check this item out at OUR fav place @target
