📖 (23) - Holiday parties in Chicago had always been my jam, so it was weird when I didn’t have any to attend that year. I overheard that my coworkers were doing things together, but I didn’t ask and wasn’t invited.
I told myself I was the new girl with the $1MM deal who had just relocated from Chicago, which protected me from wondering why they didn’t seem to like me as much as I thought they did before I moved.
Luckily, my girlfriend saved me.
She called to say she was flying into town for a holiday party and invited me as her +1. I wondered who flew in for a party that wasn’t a wedding.
Having a feeling that the party might be a thing, I drank alone in my apartment as I got ready.
When I arrived, I waited nervously as the bouncer looked up my name on a list that was pages long. Mine was handwritten at the end.
I was escorted upstairs and as the doors opened, I walked into a scene that felt reserved for the movies. I had no idea these kinds of parties existed in real life.
To offset how plain, ugly and poor I felt, I drank gallons of vodka and champagne and tried to play it cool when various celebrities and Vogue models bumped into me.
I couldn’t get out of bed until 5pm the next day.
On Monday morning, still hungover, I told everyone about the party and a crowd gathered around me to hear the details.
Afterward, I began getting invited to things.
To be continued… 📖

Most postpartum posts are before and after shots “40weeks pregnant” compared to looking amazing at “ 1year postpartum” but most moms don’t share the in between. .
- the loose skin
- The stretch marks
- The double chin
- Baby pouch
- Saggy boobs
- Even Hair loss
So here I am being vulnerable for you all, to show you what real life postpartum looks like. Not to scare you of pregnancy because it is a beautiful thing and it’s crazy what our bodies are capable of but i wanted to show you, that like a babies growth our bodies too take time to grow back into being strong. I’m not sucking in or holding anything back. Im not posing in a certain angle for the camera although I have been a culprit of it. This is all of me. And here’s the thing... I grew a friggen human, gained 50lbs and slowly started working out not even 2mths ago. I look forward to the day where I’ll be able to post my “after” photo but right now I’m enjoying what my body gave me. Do you hear her laugh? Do you see the way she looks at me? That right there is my true happiness 💕
Don’t put life on hold because of a few extra rolls. We all got rolls!
Don’t hide yourself from the world. Each one of us is unique and beautiful in our own way that the world wouldn’t be the same without us.
Don’t pity yourself. Walk with confidence everyday and you’ll notice a change in your mood instantly.
You matter and anything is possible if you set your mind to it.
Attitude and outlook baby! 😘

Not everyone is going to understand, some people may downright be against you, they may have no idea why you’re doing what you are. .
I hope you know it’s ok and normal. But there are LOTS of people in your corner who are cheering for you! So many people who want you to succeed and reach those goals you have.
I know I have some people whom I dearly love who cannot fathom why I am trying for a bikini competition. Actually, they are kinda mad at me. And you know what? That’s ok. “It’s indecent,” “it’s vain,” “going on stage in a tiny two piece is practically pornographic.” 😱😳
Even, “how can you be Catholic and do that?!?” .
1) it’s about hard work, building VIRTUE actually. Perseverance, fortitude, courage, humility (I’m going to be JUDGED!), self control and dedication!
2) in order to step on stage I have to dig out my vices (sloth and gluttony in particular 😬😬)
3) to walk on that stage I have to be 💯 confident in who I AM, who I am MEANT to be!
4) yes, the competition suits are revealing, however it’s a tool meant to showcase the hard work put in, not about sexualizing my body.
“Love . . . is not proud,” (1 Cor. 13:4, NIV). We all have things and people we are proud of. One of the things I am most proud of is my college degree. College was incredibly challenging for me, and it took me 5 1/2 years to earn my four year degree. Because I remember the struggle so well, I have a profound awareness of my own powerlessness, and in turn, a deep appreciation for the grace of God and the people He surrounded me with. His faithfulness made me faithful and enabled me to keep going when I wanted to quit. • This kind of “pride” is really more about honoring where you’ve come from and remembering the journey. It points to our need and to the various ways God meets it. • There’s another kind of pride that starts with us, and ends there, too. It depends on itself for everything. It isolated and keeps us from experiencing the kind of intimacy that comes from vulnerability and learning to lean on another. It keeps us from enjoying the strengths of others and from offering our own in return. • It sounds strange to say, but it occurred to me in writing this that God Himself is the perfect example to us of what true humility looks like. The Son of God voluntarily left Heaven to come to a place that would not recognize or appreciate Him. He washed the feet of His disciples and said He relied entirely on His Father for everything. He didn’t defend Himself when unjustly accused. He let the very ones He came for kill Him, knowing He could stop the proceedings at any time, but choosing not to, because He’d come to serve, and not be served. • If God humbles Himself to seek us out, the most natural and liberating thing we can do is respond. Whatever that looks like right now, respond to the thought that God might not be as far removed from you and your situation as you’ve always believed. Without trying to force or change your feelings, tell yourself the truth about the limits of your own strength, and consider that the God who calls Himself Love might be the well of grace that doesn’t run dry.
Truth be told, I negotiate in every corner of my life. I set these goals for myself, and when I don’t accomplish them, I have this internal conversation about how it’s okay because I gave it a good effort. ⠀
⠀ ⠀ ⠀
This often sounds like, “You’ll have all things in time,” or, “Being healthy and happy is what’s really important, you didn’t *need* to accomplish that thing.” Mostly what happens is I push my deadlines out until I deliver - so nearly none of my commitments are actually deadline based. Wtf is the point of a deadline then?! ⠀
⠀ ⠀ ⠀
I want to be clear that I’m both laughing, and feeling disappointed about this realization. On one hand, what a funny, human thing to do?! And on the other hand, I didn’t shift into this new way of living to play an 80% game; and that’s what negotiating with myself is, it’s making an 80% game okay, everywhere. And that’s not my commitment in building my business, or in my work with Accomplishment Coaching, or in my relationships...it’s not my commitment anywhere (except Becca Di Beppo bc on the real, their portions are cartoonishly large). ⠀ ⠀
⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Have a look for yourself - are you a negotiator? Where do you negotiate in a way that holds you back? Where does negotiating stand between you and your full potential?

If I’m honest and not holding back, I’d tell you I might throw up a little I see one more couple pronounce and share their twin-flame-soul-mate-on-a-holy-mission (month old) relationship on social media. I’ve been seeing a lot of ‘em recently.
Your love doesn’t inspire me.
I would be most inspired to feel you in reverence, grounded, and deeply listening. Taking things step by step, humble to love.
Honoring and saying yes to a powerful connection, but not making any conclusions, especially not the holier than thou spiritual kind.
I’d be most inspired to see how you both show up, deepen, and meet the hard stuff in months to come. When the glam and glitter fades, when your tender underbelly or not so sparkly shame arrives at your relationship’s doorstep. How you show up in community and to the tenderness in your hearts along the way. I’m moved by relationship visions that sprout from the quiet walks you both take in each other’s heart. By the richness that comes from being stripped to your core, seen in your utter humanness, and loved anyways.
I want to feel your realness, your devotion, your humility at the altar of love - not your new age special proclamations. The health and sustainability of your relationship is actually supported by not going too visionary, too fast. If that spark of vision and specialness is true - it will happen without the grandeur.
Sweet new lovers, I beg you to stay curious, open, and connected to yourself. And yes, share your budding love, let’s celebrate it! But let’s aim for for more devotion, less declaration .

Is this equivalent to @issarae
book of raps? 🤔
I’ve been thinking, wrestling with the thought of doing this post for a while. I think it’s because I felt so vulnerable in the moment and all I could think about was the depravity of man, and how society actually “enjoys” it. .
So there I was on a flight a while ago, and about 4 rows in front of me, in the opposite aisle is a guy sitting, watching pornography on his x-large cellphone propped up on the back of the seat in front of him. Propped up in a position for all to see. .
A full flight with half of the passengers able to see what he is doing. Woman, children, men. Yet no one had the guts to address this guy. No instead the other men took pictures of him watching this. The cabin crew members overlooked it, or laughed at it. The woman felt vulnerable and try to divert their attention. And the children were to busy playing on their i-pads to notice. .
Just there and then I realized in what a sick world we live in. Or actually this, just re-affirmed what I already knew. .
The depravity of man. .
How to live in such a fallen world, where things like this just forms part of the “norm”. .
Then I realized that this might have what I would classify as “extreme” but how many other things gets accepted by our society and we go into each day accepting things that goes against the word of God. Just because it became acceptable. Just because it doesn’t make you feel vulnerable. Just because it’s not extreme. Just because. .
Are you consciously on the look out?
Are you living purposefully?
Are you making Biblical based decisions?
Are you able to see the things that the world has “normalized”? Are you fleeing from the things of the world? .
It’s not easy to do this when the world shouts something different but this is what God instructs. .

I love watching ‘Tidying Up’ Japanese organization expert, Marie Kondo, look through messy closets and cupboards, exclaiming with joy, “I love Mess!” I imagine Jesus has the same reaction when we finally let him into our broken places we have kept hidden in shame for so long. I am thankful Jesus isn’t intimidated, disgusted or overwhelmed by my brokenness. He loves to make my messy places beautiful.

⚠️ WARNING: this is raw, unedited, vulnerable but inspirational advice that I just so happened to have caught on camera ⚠️ .
If you decided to keep reading please head over to my YouTube Channel and check out my video. Please subscribe, like, & share if you were moved in anyway by this. Your support, love and positive feedback is what fueled me to find the courage to be this raw and vulnerable with you guys! 🔥
So the story behind this video was actually to give a long lost friend some advice. I felt the need to record it so the message could be heard by anyone who needed it. This advice will be heard differently depending on the perspective of the person listening and their current mindset but the goal remains the same. Whether it be your relationship with God, yourself, your signification other, your best friend, your mother, father, daughter, sister, brother, etc; you must forgive in order to grow.
I have only scratched the surface of my journey with God and self love but I feel so revived and compelled to share my story and hopefully shine a light in the lives of those who need it most! 🙏🏼
My faith has been restored and my vision is now crystal clear in terms of my purpose, the people, and the way I chose to spend my time and its incredible to sit back and watch things I’ve always dreamt of start to become my reality.
“Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart” Psalm 37:4

Day 19: Mother of Dragons.
It took me awhile to understand my anger.
It took me awhile to understand the shame.
It took me awhile to understand why I only yearned for solitude.
It took me awhile to understand that there was a different out there for me.
It took me awhile to understand I needed help.
It took even longer to seek it. •
It took me awhile to understand how to remember what happened to me.
It took me awhile to learn how to cope with that.
It took me awhile to acknowledge the dragons I had created as a little girl to protect me.
It took me even longer to understand they would always be with me. •
It took me awhile to come to love my dragons.
It took me awhile to realize they were not prohibitors, but protectors.
It took me awhile to learn self protection versus self sabotage.
It took me awhile to understand fear.
It took me awhile to trust.
It took me awhile to feel safe.
It took me even longer to understand love.
It took me awhile to listen to my my dragons. •
It took me awhile to learn their language.
It took me awhile to understand that when my dragons make noise; it was for a reason.
It took me awhile to understand my dragons were my God-given intuition.
And it took me the longest to realize, I had to learn how to trust my dragons instead of making my dragons to trust me. •

This energy is about individuality and testing the boundaries. Love is bold and self directed, always present and visible, dependent only on our ability to choose it and claim it. Rebirth is constant and ever-expanding, and here we go again, bursting past challenges into shifts in perception, from human fear-based mental obstacles to relieving spiritual truths. The most successful offerings we share are those we intuitively co-create with Source. During this rise in levels, we sometimes face overwhelm that leads us to throw our hands up in the air from disappointment in the current tools at our disposal because we’re supposed to find new ones using our energy, strengths, intuition and unique ingredients. This is what stimulates our creativity, fulfills our inventive spirit and helps the world with our fully authentic self. Sometimes we must find stillness among the activity and detachment from familiarity to tune in to this voice of innovation. Treat yourself to serenity, enjoyment and personal time to transform and transcend.
This magical pride was a great hit as a greeting card. They sold out and I’ve had a few queries about them. Just checking who or how many of you would be keen if I printed more (along with some new illustrations,) this time on 350gsm 100% post consumer waste recycled paper??
calls you when it is time- even if you are not sure that you are ready for it. You are being called into love in a deeper, fuller and more mysterious way than ever before.
Whether it is learning to love again after heart break, risking yourself in #vulnerability
where you would normally remain self-protected, whether it is daring to give yourself permission to feel all your emotions, or learning to love and #surrender
into the beauty and #sensuality
of your own body and it’s needs for #healing
touch and #playfulness
, love is there.
of Love asks you to build a home; a #sanctuary
from the ills of the world, where all can feel welcomed and loved. It might be through finding a safe place in your #heart
in which to dwell, and allowing those who seek you out, to be #loved
There is no limit to the love that can #flow
through you; you will never be depleted by it, only expanded.
Have patience and listen to your heart.
Healing Affirmation- “Our Lady of Love, #inspire
me, instruct me, #empower
me, to be your sacred #warrior
in the world, #fearless
and compassionate, a force of your light to help illuminate the darkness and bring an end to terror and hate. When I fall into these traps myself, let me remember the truth, that I am a child of love.”

"Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not as nearly dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy..." Brene Brown
I'm sitting here at the beautiful desk my wife made listening to the rain fall on the metal roof. Around this time last year I was walking through intense therapy after everything had collapsed around me. During this time our neighbor would hang himself on a tree just outside our farm gate and another stranger would have a massive heart attack and crash in our neighbors yard. I asked our neighbor to kindly stop finding dead people on our land because I joke to cope in horrible situations. My therapist at the time said to me that I probably didn't realize it but I saw myself in those two situations. She was right.
I had to own my story, reckon with my reasons for being emotionally locked down and realize who held my peace. Taking that risk of vulnerability has led me back to true love and belonging and joy. I have such gratitude for sitting in this spot tonight.

I’ve learned that you can be broken and committed to putting yourself back together, while also simultaneously enjoying whatever you can- whenever you can. Today, I spent some time with a beautiful, beautiful soul/photographer. And, she saw me in a way that I had not ever seen myself. She helped me to remember the parts of myself that have always been and always will be whole. No matter what.
I’ve been pretty transparent about how challenging life has been for me to navigate as of late. I work extremely hard to show up as fully as I possibly can every day. It’s work I will always do, but it can be exhausting. I tend to be hard on myself and I tend to forget that I am deserving of all the good things. I tend to forget that it’s ok to receive love, it’s ok to feel beautiful and powerful and it’s ok to allow yourself to be seen as such.
This is a raw and unedited photo of a photo that was sent to me from today. I saw this, and said to myself, “there you are , you badass B. Welcome home”✨

I was molested and sexually abused growing up. I have pushed this far in the back of my mind for many years. I can remember the first time I was ever depressed. I had to be about seven years old. I would come home every single day and I would take the hottest baths that I could take, so that I could feel like I was clean. When I became a teenager I never felt like a virgin. I never cherished my virginity because I never felt like I had one lose. And I’ve never identified myself as a victim. I feel like I’m spiritually being attacked. But I know I’m stronger than I ever thought I was. THE DEVIL IS A LIAR. So I’m sharing my story because I’m not going to be ashamed anymore 🖤 #metoo #rapesurvivor #molestationsurvivor #molestationawareness #strength #fighter #vulnerability #mystory #speakup #strongblackwoman
You think attention is love and that is why you suffer.
Seeking validation from external sources is why you hide from mirrors when you are alone.
Take the time to stare into yourself, to appreciate every crease in your body.
Understand you are more than the physical, those who matter will see you for much more than that.
Taking time to love yourself teaches you how you can be loved.
But what does that entail?
We hear self-love and self-care all the time but what does it really mean?
What does it mean to you? What Rituals do you dedicate to loving yourself and your body ?
It's taken many years to feel comfortable to post something like this. And it is not for any validation or attention. But because the human body is natural beautiful and unique. I am proud of who I am and this magical vessel I am in on this planet.
I feel most beautiful in a bathtub full of bubbles or roses.
Where do you feel most beautiful?

follow the feathers...
when it feels like life doesn’t give a duck: follow the feathers ... and dimes, quarters, nickles, pennies, heart shaped anything, rainbows, purposefully placed songs, smiles, gestures. follow it. remember it. keep them until a jar spills over.
follow those feathers, and hold on. we hold on together.
i love you,

Owning your darkest nights
Today I felt like I was being really tested with the darkest night of my past. My darkest night was my heart. Physical pain and trauma is nothing like the heart. The heart wound goes deep into your soul and leaves a scar. The scar stays with you until you make the mental shift to heal and clear this. Heart trauma is like going through a loss of death.
A situation today triggered fear in me. My natural human nature is to isolate and disappear from the situation. By doing this, I am just hiding and not facing my fears and making it all about me when it’s never about me. Love is unconditional. There is no judgments.
I chose not to react. I observed my feelings, honor my feelings. I spoke my truth despite how fearful I was and own my own shit I created. Everything is not what it seems. To be able to see the bigger picture. Think outside of the box rather than inside. Expand the mind.
What I learned from this, is always speak your truth with integrity, honesty, without criticism and judgment. Speak from a loving heart space. In the end, it always comes down to love. Love always wins. I allow myself to be open, to be vulnerable. In turn, I can help other’s heal when I have healed myself. Practice what you preach. Be the change you want to see in other’s. Many blessings to all. Namaste.

As someone perceived to have it all figured out all the time, let me tell you I don't. I get very anxious, very stressed and second guess myself constantly. I dislike sharing anything about myself and keep myself closed from people and at arms distance, often to a fault and detriment to those around me. Despite these things I may find rest in the hope that Jesus died for me in spite of those things. When I don't trust Him He still remains trustful. He is faithful when i am not. He is so near to us, we need only seek Him and He will be found. There is no prerequisite, no amount of good and put together you need to achieve. There is no one better then anyone else, no one more deserving then another. He Is Near. "The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit." Psalms 34:18 "Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near;" Isaiah 55:6 .

🌷 Love reading for Wednesday 20th February, 2019. 🌷
💕 As soon as these cards flipped, my guides went to town with messages! 😂 So, first thing’s first, I’m hearing ‘walls coming down’ and ‘intimate conversations.’ Your love interest is getting ready to ‘bare their heart’ to you. What they have to say will significantly strengthen the bond that the two of you have, and it will help you to get to know (or learn) about each other, on a deeper level. They might share (with you) an experience that they had during childhood, a previous relationship, etc. It won’t be something superficial like what their favourite food is, or how much they enjoyed last night’s episode of home and away. This will be something that genuinely brings you closer to one another. There is an open, vulnerable, honest, authentic, raw, beautiful energy about it. ✨
💕 Specific message: Your friend wants to ‘set you up’ with someone whom they think would be good for you. There is a slight sense of pressure about this too. Whilst you aren’t opposed to the idea of going on a date with them, just make sure that you only say yes to things that you feel 100% comfortable with. Because I’m hearing two things:
1 - Either you aren’t sure about entering into a relationship with that person.
2 - You aren’t quite ready to start something yet.
💕 As I’ve been typing, I’ve just seen 222. With this I’m being told that many of you will be seeing more signs and synchronicities this week. Especially from your twin flame, so do pay attention to your surroundings. Others will be getting them through music.
💕 For a person viewing this reading, that’s coupled, what I’m being shown is that you saw a different side to your partner, within the past week or so. Whether good or not so good, you certainly didn’t expect it, that’s for sure. ✨
💕 Specific message: Your partner likes to dance and/or they give a good massage. Not sure why spirit is telling me that, but it’s somehow relevant to you. You will know how it fits/applies if you resonate with it. 🔮

I want to show you how this feels.
In the last twenty-four hours I have been challenged, doubted, angered, and brought to tears. Even after all the growth I have experienced, it is amazing how someone can say one thing that will bring up trauma from years ago. And it’s not the person’s fault....they don’t know the trauma. We all have past hurts, doubts, memories, and events that can resurface again and again.
I wonder if those words were necessary so I could cry. Maybe so I could let go? Be vulnerable? Time and time again I put that wall up. I only allow others to get so close.
I am working on this piece of me. In the mean time, I know how far I have come. I know how much I have grown. And I know the hurt I have experienced.
I am choosing to rise above it. I am choosing to shine my light in the world and speak for those who can not speak for themselves.
How do you handle the wrongs and hurts that have been bestowed upon you?

Working on my podcast @the_golden_cracks
on resilience! And wondering very strongly how much of your struggles is good to share with your relatives?
When you are feeling down, should you just be patient and wait it out or is sharing with close ones a good idea?
How much vulnerability is good to place out there?
Tough one, and of course it will be different for everyone.
But as I progress in the podcast, many feedbacks show me how hard it is to be heard when you are unwell, people get very anxious with other people’s sadness and pain...
Working my understanding around this in the podcast.
Sorry for the suspense :) it’s coming! Its a subtle subject so I’m trying not to get it Too wrong ;)

batlady: suppressing the feelings associated with ANGER in turn suppress our IMMUNE SYSTEM. In Dr. Gabor Maté's book, "When the Body Says NO: Understanding the Stress-Disease Connection" speaks of the mind+body+spirit connection (#hakomi
) and sites numerous studies where the suppression of emotions, particularly around anger are directly linked to physical deterioration, pain and disease. ANGER, or a bubbling sensation, or rise in heat in our body, or our jaws starting to feel tense, or our throat feeling tight, or a stopping of breath, however it works for you...all of these signals indicate for us to slow down and pay attention. When we suppress our #anger
, we suppress our innate #Self
, dismiss our own needs and put the needs of others above our own. You are WORTHY. You are LOVE. You are worth protecting. Want to learn more? Come to my workshop ANGER - a love story. 3-part evening series starting next Tue. Reg in bio!
