I think I need a wooly hat. Really, that’s what you call it? Or a knit cap? Help me out here while I share my deep, deep Monday thoughts.
Also how can this not be a trending hashtag yet?? #hipsterstrideby
On Mondays I miss the weekends. We had an awesome weekend filled with absolutely nothing and absolutely everything at the same time. Sometimes it's the quiet weekends where you sleep in and stay put that are the best. ❤❤ #livingfortheweekend#mondaythoughts
the universe has a way of making me feel so small yet so big at the same time and I guess it’s up to us to find a balance #mondaythoughts
You are confined only by the walls that you build for yourself.✌
I’ve always loved the idea of not being what people expect me to be.
After all, if you aren’t willing to follow yourself, why would anyone else want to? Do have faith, fam. #mondaythoughts
I’ve been getting some questions about what my journey to health has been like and recently I opened an old journal and here is what I found: 🙏😊🌿
Balance comes from slowing down, from taking deep breaths, from understanding your body and what it needs. It comes from accepting who you are and loving yourself every step of the way. Always reacting to life means living in the past. My body is connected to my emotions, my emotions are connected to my thoughts, my thoughts are connected to my ability to stay present. Learn to act instead of reacting. #mondaythoughts#ericajanehealth#balance
When I’m not dancing, I work in an industry where happiness, cheerfulness and agreeableness are valued higher than the whole self of a person. But, I have worked so hard to be my whole self. My whole self is not always bubbly... My whole self is strong. My whole self is sensitive. My whole self is brave. My whole self is wild. My whole self is a woman... a woman, more than a smile, the thousands of moments and experiences throughout her life that shaped her. A male customer said to me today that I didn’t have the “joyous, boisterous sound” to my voice as I usually did. And I thought, am I not also intelligent? Strong? Kind? I was not put on this earth to be pleasing to you. I was put on this earth to be genuine, to help others, to make a positive change.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about who I have been and who I want to be. I think sometimes we get so caught up in trying to please others and making sure that people like us, and trying to be cool, that we can forget the qualities that drew those people to us in the first place. I think it’s so important to embrace your quirks and highlight the qualities that make you unique and different from everyone else. 🙂 #mondaythoughts#whyfitin#whenyouwereborntostandout
I knew God would not let me down and I knew He would come through at the time I needed. I completed my first week at my new job (last week) and it was absolutely amazing. I got a fat Christmas bonus after working there for 4 days, attended the company Christmas party on Thursday at the JS Memorial Building, and had the day off on Friday. Not a bad way to start back to work. I'm so grateful for a loving Heavenly Father. I feel so blessed. #mondaythoughts#singlemomthriving#godisgood I'm so excited for 2018!!
This picture says a lot to me. Two filters, one choice.
You could look at this and see a desk that looks busy, maybe a stressful environment where little fun is had. All the while looking out at a building under construction that is probably constantly loud, distracting, and incomplete.
At the exact same time you could see a workplace for creativity, passion, and opportunity. All the while Looking at a building that represents our journey; imperfect, long, trying, but always worth it the end. I challenge myself and everyone else scrolling by this to choose the right filter. #mondaythoughts
#mondaythoughts As someone who has struggled their entire life with anxiety, this statement carries some intense meaning. With anxiety, your brain is stuck in an endless cycle of things that could possibly go wrong, forever worrying about the future. And these days, the fact that we are bombarded by constant stimuli leaves little time to just enjoy the present moment. In what ways do you take time to practice mindfulness and being present? 🤔 I’ve currently been working on meditating (still a work in progress 😂) and taking occasional walks between class without any headphones in 😄🏃🏻♀️#qotd#liveinthemoment#mindfulness#gratitude#mondaymood#mentalhealth#health#wellness#balance
You all know I’m the biggest fan of Monday’s. A day to refuel and replenish (hence the green juice🙌🏼) and I just really love spending time in my cozy little home.
Today - actually the last week or two, I’ve just been super overwhelmed with thankfulness. It’s incredible how the Father hears our hearts. He knows exactly who and what we need. He actually does give us what we desire, in His timing.
And all along the way, He is teaching and molding us.
He has a plan, we have a purpose. Simple. But so beautiful. My Jesus is GOOD🌿
Spent most of our weekend in our pjs and preparing for a new week. Reminding ourselves this week that God is with us through the good times and bad, he hears our cries and knows our hearts. Feeling blessed for this family of mine and thankful for a new fresh week. #mondaythoughts#igm_029
