A population of 7.6 billion filled with people with abilities far greater than mine's, problems incomparable to mine's, obstacles that put to shame my barriers, and with strengths so vast they cast shadows upon my degraded efforts. As I stumble to tumble my issues, there are others who could easily tower over them so effortlessly. My problems and obstacles may be meaningless to the world, but they are meaningful in contributing to the person I will be carved into. I have been beaten down far more than I can count, but through every strike that defeats me, I will use it for my will to escalate myself higher and higher. Though my efforts may go unnoticed, I will ensure that each drop of sweat that escapes my body will sculpt me into a better self. I will ensure that each droplet of blood that is released onto the cold floor ameliorates my strengths. One cannot stay down forever and let the world run them over. (Part 2 of 2)
Day 5 of #alltheprettydancers was #dancerpose on your tiptoes 😬 holy buckets was this hard!! Balancing on your toes takes yoga to a whole other level - I hope you can see the fear on my face as I totally fell forward milliseconds after this snap. #yogafail#getbackup 😂
“The future Glory of this Temple will be greater than its past Glory” Haggai 2 v 9 NLT | If we continue to walk through what is perceived to be a trial, breakdown, valley, hardship, setback or even a mistake. God always wants to use that situation or circumstance to do something greater in your life, IF you keep him involved! Let him teach, equip & prepare you for GREATER #Greateriscoming#persevere#keepwalking#Getbackup#rebuild
I said it a million times I’ll say it again! “I don’t have the $” is an excuse that would’ve KEPT me from curing my Acid Refulx, and kept me $80 a month further In debt. COMMAND YOUR WORTH . 👉🏼 bit.ly/SelfLUBclub
This year has been full of ups and downs. Moved from my comfy life in Biloxi to Las Vegas to take a chance and ended up in an awful situation and in a matter of days....I left. My angels, @dave.wilson.9275 , @chair_ri_knee , @bgray2421 saved me and here I am in Florida now. I couldn't be happier. The pain, physical and mental, was all worth it. God's path is now abundantly clear and I know now that I am working to serve His purpose. He needed to break me down completely in order to build me back up...now stronger than ever. God will never put you through anything he knows you can't handle...and He challenged me, pushed me beyond my boundaries, made me uncomfortable, but it was to make me brave, fearless, and forgiving. I got accepted into a college that I love and that is extremely veteran friendly, I am studying what I love and already student teaching, I am able to be near my second family, and I am now in a relationship where I can share my faith and grow with them...unashamed to share our love of God. I am beyond blessed, so thankful, and so amazed at how lucky I am to be loved so dearly by Him. Glow up, keep grinding, and when I fall, I promise, as always, to stand taller each time. I can do all things, through Christ, who strengthens me. #God #🙌🏻 #strength#blessed#grind#grinding#glowup#moveforward#getbackup#bossbabe#neverlookback#dailyinspiration#motivation
I was in NY for a couple weeks and got off track with Keto. I got back up to ~257 after doing Keto again for a week I broke past the 250 I’ve been stuck at! However there is a LOT going on in my family right now and I am realizing that I am stress eating. I never pictured myself to do that before but I sobbingly ate a cheeseburger today. I want to kick myself for messing up after a good week:( back on the Keto wagon tonight! I am going to fast for at least 18hrs and see how I feel then. #keto#ifyoufalldowngetbackup#getbackup#stayketostrong#focus#keto#iloveketo#ineedketoinmylife
So this is me now... No longer attractive, outgoing, stable, etc. yes I am broken and yes I have lost myself. But I know as long as he is happy and taken care of, I will be okay. I am naturally outgoing, positive, friendly, and spontaneous to name a few. I try being optimistic but it is very difficult. The problem isn't with a person, people, individuals, location, or even with my beliefs. The problem is with me. I allowed life to happen to me instead of me happening to life. Time will tell... When my son looks at me, I never want him to worry or know of my dilemmas. I'd rather him see me upbeat and positive thinking, "I have the greatest and coolest momma in the whole world whom loves me more than anything "... I used to always smile, even when upset. Apparently where I'm living now, people take a natural thing like smiling as an insult and a threat. Anywho, I'm broken but won't stay that way. When I break free from myself, my beauty and energy will radiate happiness and kindness towards all. .
To my son and future children, I long for your smile, your happiness at best/ that you will be taken care of and that in life you'll progress/ to be a stronger and wiser individual than I've ever been/ love willingly, take chances and risks/ May you be a better change but in the end, don't forget to love yourself. .
If only I️ had a before and after of this plant. I️t has been almost 3 years since our relationship first began. My sister had been given the plant as a part of some sort of gift (I️ believe), but bc it was in an undersized pot at the time, was having difficulty keeping it healthy. Plants can be a real pain in the ass sometimes. Especially when you put all of this energy into them and they continue to struggle.
She was planning to throw it away when I️ told her I would take it in. I️t was a mere 8” tall and with less than 10 leaves. I️t could barely hold itself up. After struggling for a few months while it adapted to its new environment, I️ decided to transplant it into a larger pot and give its roots the room it so desperately needed to grow.
I️ feel like all of life is kind of like this little plant. There’s magic everywhere. Potential in everything so long as we believe there to be.
With all of that being said, this is definitely one of my favorite plants. I️ water it each week and am continually enamored by its beautiful growth, shape and vigor.
Skating... there are the good days, and then there are days like this.🤦🏾♀️I decided to post some of my failing moments from this week. No pain no gain. There will be times in your life where you fail, or fall multiple times. The most important thing is that you get right back up! It may feel like you're going nowhere, but if you fail to get back up that's where you will certainly stay. I hope this encourages someone to keep getting back up even when they feel that they have lost. Everyone falls at some point in their life. Just keep striving and I promise you will eventually get to where you need to be! Also @jkbeau your commentary makes this all the more perfect 👌🏾 😂☝️🤦🏾♀️🤷🏾♀️
