Confidence is knowing your worth!
This was the card I felt drawn to in a stack of beautiful hand painted cards.. It's meaning is deeper than I could possibly imagine.
One of my treasured symbols is the tree of life and I often have to remind myself that in order to reach for the skies, I need to stay grounded in my roots, or I will just fall.
As I come into a season of growth, this will remind me to keep my stability where it is needed.
So, when I read this I feel a couple things... 1. We should learn from our past and from our mistakes🤦🏻♀️
2. We should remember where we came from so we can celebrate how far we’ve come! 💪🏻
3. We should set goals and keep our eyes on the prize 🤩
4. We should be ever so grateful for the friends and family that love and support us through every failure and every triumph 🙌🏽
We can do hard things, but it’s more fun with people by your side👯♀️

POST COMPETITION BLUES.
Let’s be real, the time post show can either be good or bad. Because it was my first show, and it was basically my first time being on a diet so strict that eliminated sugar- my body CRAVED/is still craving sugar non-stop. It’s fine when I don’t have it but when I do, it’s like I can’t get enough🤨🤷🏻♀️ I am the type of person who thrives by having a goal in sight. so because I’m going to take a year off to build and grow, it’s as if my mind is constantly fighting the battle of “eat whatever you want Kayla” and “don’t eat all the sugar and shit it’s bad for your health and you’ll gain unnecessary weight”. It really really sucks but I’m thankful I’ve realized that sugar is literally a trigger (thank you @krisifenner
for posting about this yesterday because I’m with ya) I really don’t think I can have it in my pantry. It sucks because I want to be able to have a balance between eating nutrient dense foods and then having “fun foods” but it’s like I have zero self control when I start eating chocolate chips (random food to just eat I know)🤦🏼♀️ and I can’t stop.
I have a “plan” for building more muscle but I don’t have a date set of course. When I have a date, I KNOW I have something to work towards and I’ll do everything in my power to make it happen. But I’ve realized I need to get over this and just be more strict with myself so I can get my shit together. Soooooo I’m writing down my goals tonight and posting them up in my room so I can stare at them every damn day. I WILL grow and develop more muscle maturity and will eat better and practice what I freaking preach. 👊🏻 I realize I need to “live a little”, but when you have certain things that trigger you to do not so good things,
It’s time to cut them outta yo’ life. 👋🏻 So uh, who wants my bag of chocolate chips? 😂😂😂
Also thank you if you read through this entire post I needed to vent and hold myself accountable with this. Also who else has this problem post show??🙈 I liked it better during prep when eating the sugar wasn’t even an option 🤦🏼♀️
Today we spent our writing time publishing our papers! I love seeing the students get excited to visit the writing area in the room✏
Boom 💥 .
Would you add anything? 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
Love this from @Jameswedmore
They’ll say you were lucky.
They’ll say you had a head start.
They’ll say you were born with it.
None of this is true.
Only after years of this did you produce a field of wheat.
Reap what you’ve sown unapologetically. 🦅
At least be true to yourself.
Thursday tip: .
✨When building your dream, writing a book, jumpstarting your dream business or birthing any type of creative endeavor, one thing is very crucial: SUPPORT. .
Support is not a sign of weakness but of strength. It’s smart. Nothing is built alone. Nothing. Support comes in many ways. It can be self support. This is when you find ways to support yourself maybe by setting boundaries that will keep you on track. Support can be through friends and family. This is when you LET them care for you and be there for you as you birth your vision. Or it can be through a mentor or coach. This is when you hire someone who can help you get where you need to get by offering accountability, their wisdom and guidance. .
Today I’m thankful for all 3. I’m thankful for having an amazing coach who has kicked my ass in the most loving of ways as I finish this book. I’m grateful for the ways I support myself in this process. And I’m super super super grateful for friends who have my back and whole self. .
Shout out to this cutie who has been feeding me, caring for me, making sure I’m writing and not on social media 🤷🏽♀️ and letting me enjoy Netflix when I need downtime. You the real MVP @mlotus18
💜💜 7 days left to submit manuscript. Pinch me. .

Challanges are part of life. I was reminded today it is how we react to them makes all the difference. I would rather tackle the challenges and grow then to not try or quit! Change your mindset and grow!

As we approach @sodacitysc
everyone that comes to see us will leave with a smile guaranteed ❤️
This is why I workout: to be a bad ass and in turn, to be able to “handle shit”!
No matter how the first 4 days of your week have gone, another 3 still remain. Just. Keep. Hustling! 💪💪
Giving up alcohol and becoming sober has literally changed my view on life. When I look upon my past, I’m actually amazed to still be alive. My early twenties are a complete haze filled with crazy drunk chaos, near death experiences, and many forgotten nights. What-a-waste. Now that I have kids things looked a lot different but alcohol was still an issue. I wasn’t running around drunk all the time, but it was still a problem. Thank God I finally had a revelation, woke up, and took control of my life; instead of letting alcohol control me.
Sobriety has saved me from miserable feelings of shame. It’s saved me from drowning my self doubts in bottles of wine. It’s saved me from burying truths from my past. Sobriety has changed my life for the good, and in just two short months. Imagine where I will be in a year! Yes, it’s really, really hard some days, but it’s beyond worth it!
🎉60 days of sobriety means to me...
✨Kicking the mommy wine culture to the curb.
✨I actually don’t need a drink to “deal” because I have figured out how to work through things, instead of masking them.
✨Truly living, feeling and being —— compared to just getting by.
✨Manifesting a better life.
✨Healing my body to experience better health.
✨Healing my mind and soul to better my life and the lives of those around me.
✨Never waking up with a wicked hangover.
✨Major mind clarity and focus.
✨Beautiful spiritual growth.🙏
✨Still having a blast when I go out! 💃🎉
✨Experiencing better conversations.
✨Remembering my nights and making memories.
✨Uncovering past truths and working through them like a boss!
✨Being a more present mother, wife and friend.
✨Becoming the role model I’ve always dreamt of being for my children.
✨Saving tons of money!!!
✨60 days of being alive!! .
I will be going live on Facebook speaking about sobriety. Shoot me a friend request (Kristen Rydberg Rowe) and leave any questions here and I will answer them in the video!
THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 20: You cannot convert people's reality, and if you try you risk damning your own message. Expanding perception is for them to do on their own— when they are ready. Your only responsibility is to show up as your sovereign self, and eventually that presence will help penetrate the facade of outdated belief structures. So, show up as your truth...Show up too real...Show up as love. Be a creator and cultivate an expanded vision of community and culture that helps to liberate our many ways of being. MEDIATION: What freedom do I want to offer people when they’re around me—Just by being who I am? #thisissovereignty

Check out Brittany’s success update!
Her success, positive outlook and determination is truly an inspiration to me!
Just recently, Brittany had her last day in the weight loss phase! She spent 2 years on the same plan I did (40 pounds and 7 years ago!) and has lost bs❗️ In the last 2 years not only did she lose the weight - and inspire a whole lot of people along the way - Before the weight loss- she found herself hiding inside. She has found a life she never dreamed she could have. Before losing the weight, she couldn't drive a 🚗 because she couldn't fit behind the wheel. Just recently she hit the 10K mile mark on her new compact 🚗 that she was able to purchase last spring.
How about a shout out of congratulations 🎉 🎉 to Brittany on outstanding accomplishment, her new life, and for her upcoming wedding 💕
