These 3 have become a go-to for me over the years, especially when my heart is heavy. Last night I discovered that my dear friend’s son passed away after a short but valiant fight against an aggressive form of leukemia. My mama heart is broken for my beloved friend. So many emotions amidst this. These 3 oils in the diffuser, loads of Black Spruce over my heart, Sarah at the bottom of my sternum, and a whole lot of gentleness with myself as I process this news. Damn, I am grateful that I have these oils to support me through times like this. #loss #grief #fuckcancer #yleo #oilup #mountainandmoonessentials
Transformation Tuesday. I can so relate to Leah’s story!
Hopeless, sad, unhappy, depressed, lost in the void of a dark pit, lack of confidence, burdened with loss, incapable of feeling able, all these were feelings I carried in the picture on the left. ⛓
In January 2014 I Unexpectedly lost my sister, 😔 in January 2017 I Unexpectedly gained my life back! 🔑
I found a completely different program that not only offered a way to lose weight but a way to find the mental clarity, hope, and freedom from all that held me back. I lost 56lbs but truly gained Life Transformation!! 🐛
The picture on the right represents me outside my comfort zone living in full freedom, sharing the 🎁 to all who will receive!! 🦋

So I'm not going to lie I have treated myself! Not only was it weigh day but today I also passed my driving test 😊 so a couple of gins and a kfc is just what I fancied and I did see a 1.5lb loss this week so I have until Tuesday to work it off 😂 #test #driving #superhappy #loss #happyplace #myjourney
Today, I shared with a coworker how I raised my baby by myself; how naive I used to be (I threw myself into some bizarre situations. 🤣) and how my mom was completely supportive of my choices, and for me, no matter anything, until she died. Today I told my daughter that it’s somebody in heaven’s birthday soon! She guessed grandma right away! 👧🏻What to do to celebrate the woman who celebrated my spirit with love, pride and who taught me to honor and love others? (thinking beach, beer, food) 😬🍱🍺🌊If I cry from right now until next month... that will be fine. 💧💧💧💧💧💧💧💧Today, I got home and enjoyed my first Ipsy package. Never one to delay gratification any longer than necessary, I ripped in, and love the cuteness. Thanks ipsy 🤩 #life #sigh #loss #fuckcancer #parenting #momsbirthdaywithoutmom #thanksipsy
Having a large family is wonderful until death creeps up. We have lost another loved one today, unexpected and too soon. He will be forever in our hearts.
💪💪Lists...for the sake of shit, I used to make so many lists. And guess what!?!? I never did a single fucking thing on my lists. 😡
✴Why didn't it work??✴
❎ Because I was lazy. ❎Because I wrote too many things down. Wasn't realistic.
❎I overwhelmed myself with too many things.
❓❓So, what changed??
✅ I started SMALL. My list consisted of only TWO things:
☑1.) Drink one gallon of water.
That's it! Two things.
✅ I got up off my fat ass, stopped feeling sorry for myself. And stopped ALL the negative self talk.
✅I spoke to myself with respect and positivity, the way I would speak to anyone else. ✅I went and found a PCP. Thank GOD for my Doctor!!! Because not only did he listen to ALL my concerns, he referred me to a therapist.
🚫🚫🚫🚫Nooooo! I didn't want one. I was so reluctant. What the hell were they going to tell me that I didn't already know??? 😡😡😡
Once I humbled myself and admitted I didn't know everything, EVERYTHING STARTED TO CHANGE!!!
I got out of my own way, I stopped being a victim of my life ➡➡(the message I spread for years and hypocritically NEVER followed)⬅⬅, and started caring about myself and loving me!!
It all started by writing down 2 simple things. ☑
Now my lists only consist of the "have to's". I don't try to unrealistically sabotage myself and set myself up for failure anymore. 💪💪💪💪
I also don't compare my life to anyone else's. It's all about being the best me I can be! 💙💪💛💪❤💪💚💪💜💪
