So, for years I’ve always hated pictures & videos of myself because I was scared of how I looked and how I came across to others. I would cry when I saw photos I didn’t like especially if they were taken with other people not because I hated the people I was with but because I always looked bigger & worse than everyone else. I was unnecessarily tall and chubbier than most of my friends so I would conveniently slip away when it was time to take a picture. Which is why I started to P.S. I Love Myself project to challenge myself to venture out of my comfort zone and face my insecurities head on. And by facing them & accepting myself for me I hope to love myself little by little. I can tell you guys a million things wrong with the picture above because I’ve stared at it for hours deciding whether to post it or not but despite it not being a good photo in my eyes I’m going to post it because regardless of all the bad points it’s me and I am beautiful! I’m lovely not only on the outside but I’m gold on the inside as well. I might not be conventionally pretty but I am beautiful in my own eyes and that’s all that matters. •🌸•🌸•🌸•🌸•🌸•🌸•🌸•🌸•🌸
Love yourselves and don’t forget to tell yourselves everyday that you’re beautiful and loved ❤️🌺❤️🌺 #relateable #bodypositivity #love #loveyourself #empoweringwomen #empoweredwomen #empowerment #encouragement #encourageyourself #bodypositive #youarebeautiful #youareabadass #youareenough #youarenotalone #youareloved #selfcare #selflove #loveyou #positivevibes #positivethinking #positivity #goodvibes #beautiful #lovely #takecareofyourself
This is me. I love my smile, even the one crooked tooth on the right. I love my broad nose because it fits my face and links me to my tribe. My curls are tight, but that fro is BANGING!! (If I do say so myself.)😜 I’m curvy and beautiful. I’m smart and funny. I’m honest and forthright. I’m loyal and loving. This is me. How do you describe yourself? #putsomerespekonit #beingus #beingyou #beingme #encourageyourself #selflove
True happiness is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose!
When I’m at my best! When I’m at my worst! When I’m happy! When I’m Sad! It doesn’t matter the mood or the circumstances, I can’t make it without God!💛
What if I told you it was as simple as surrounding yourself with truly uplifting, positive people? Cheering you on every step of the way?
Coaching has given me SO much. Not only am I helping myself feel better & have a side hustle going, I am helping OTHERS feel their best!!!!!! I’m not making this stuff up guys💁🏼♀️ I’ve seen improvements in my strength, watch my muscles get more defined, my own personal self development AND seeing so many other girls succeed! .
It is such a HUGE self-esteem boost knowing that by gaining confidence in yourself you’re also helping so many other girls that were in the same spot you were. A couple months ago I was feeling less encouraged and lacking motivation. Now, I’ve gained it all back! .
If you have a passion for helping others & bettering yourself, message me to see if coaching is something you’re interested in!💪🏻💕 #coachinglife #onlinefitnesscoach #healthylifestyle #montana #confidence #encourageyourself #encourageothers #personalgrowth #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney
Being rich and having money are different. You can have money and not know how to spend it or you can be rich and not be able to keep it. It's better if you get a rich heart than to get a rich pocket!
Ah, mindless shopping.
Much like its cousin, mindless eating, it can often lead to regret and an upset stomach.
So, while you’re updating that fall wardrobe I’d encourage you not to make another purchase until you ask yourself these 5️⃣ questions #ontheblog
(hint: they have nothing to do with price). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Feeling lost is not always pleasant. It can sometimes cause confusion, desperation, sadness, and hopelessness. It brings up more questions than answers- What do I do? Where should I go now? How do I find my way? Will I ever get out of this?
The good thing is that you can grasp some hope and relief even when those questions aren’t answered. How? 🌳Ground yourself in things you do know. 🌳Continue to move forward even when the future is blurry.
🌳Take a deep breath and be present in the moment.

Hello friends! Hope you had a nice day. It’s been crazy busy few days for me but I wanted to jump on here and thank each and every one of you for your support.
I appreciate your comments and likes. I haven’t expected this type of love from you!
has shared my post with her friends yesterday. It truly touched me. I’m so thankful!
I’m so happy that my little thoughts on here, my attempts at staying positive and trying to empower other ladies who might have a hard day or two,or are going through something has helped or inspired you!
It means the world to me if I can help even one person.
My goal is to drive awareness to mental health, encourage healthy habits, and share different ways to deal with depression and anxiety. And do this in a positive and empowering way.
So to make the long story short, thank you so much for your love and support!

Two years ago around this time I started going to therapy for the first time.
I knew I was about to get engaged and I was so excited, but had some sh!t I needed to deal with and heal personally (anxiety, depression, fear, scarcity, lack).
It was the best decision I ever made. I went on a regular basis for about 9 months and it helped set me on a path of self awareness, self empowerment and self love. -
I feel like these topics are popping up everywhere, and it’s so important to talk about them, YES, but it’s also important to move through them. Don’t stay stuck. Don’t focus on the lack, mess or inadequacies. Feel them fully, then let them go and do the next right thing. You can’t be a victim and victor at the same time. -
What’s the next right step? I was having this conversation with a friend today. But HOW do I do that? WHAT is the next right step? Start paying attention to your ✨thoughts + words✨ what are you actually thinking and speaking over yourself and your life?
The Power by Rhonda Byrne is a great jumping off point if you want to learn more on this topic, I highly recommend it.
Ps- yes it’s a library book. I know it’s 2018 and we have audible, kindle etc, but I still LOVE going to the library🤓📚
Remember even small progress is still progress! Keep going.
This morning inspirational moment was an unexpected reminder. Sometimes my FAITH is ALL I have. The spirit doesn’t care how BEAT your face is!
Last week and this week have already been trying in many ways. But the GAG is “ I didn’t die, I didn’t lose, I didn’t quit, I’m still in the press!” I dare you to listen to it on today. Peep VERSE 2
How many days must I be fence all around you
How many nights must I wipe your tears away
How many storms must I bring you safely through
For you to know just how much I love you

"Go through it and grow through it."
'Go through it and grow through it' means we embrace things that might intimidate or scare us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It means we forgive ourselves when we make mistakes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And it means we love and appreciate the journey just as much as the destination. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thank you, Dr. Gordon, for the inspiration!
While time passes by, discrimination will dissolve and everyone will be able to become whatever they want. There will be no more separatism between people and being a female leader will not be uncommon at all. Fight for it!
Lord, I want to be ready. 💕
What do you think about his rules?🤔⠀
Do you agree with him?👊🏻
And don't you forget it... With Love, LW!
