This pic was cracking me up because all that kept replaying in my head was “I can’t get up, Ralphie!!!” From. A Christmas story

In our home, essential oils play an important role in living out a chemical free lifestyle. Everything we do, eat, see and speak etc. trickles down to our 4 children in one way or another. Teaching our kids about the natures of the world and the amazing way plants can help support our bodies is such an important concept to be learned. We empower our kids by making(and letting them help make) their own specific roller blends for different uses, making sure they are involved in keeping their own wellness in check. It’s a fun but powerful way to equip them to embrace a healthier lifestyle for their future🌿.

I was in my cheetah robe yelling “GET THE TEQUILA OUT! I’M GOING TO TEMPLE!!” I remember this day like it was yesterday. . I had just got out of the shower and checked my email only to see an email from Temple saying that I had been accepted to the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program. (Celebratory tequila shots with the fam followed🍾) . I can’t put the emotions that I felt that day into words. . I was moving to Philly. I was making my dreams a reality. . Summer came. Classes started. . I got a 64 on my first physiology exam ever. I cried and cried some more and some more. . PT school was no joke. The studying was no joke. My 3.8 college GPA meant nothing now. I had to devote all of my time and energy to this. . The stress and anxiety I felt surrounding school was unreal, but I was more motivated than ever. . There were countless days where I wanted to quit. But I wouldn’t. This was temporary, but the end goal would be so worth the fight. . At Temple, you cannot receive more than 2 grades below 80%. So, long story short, I started out with one. Neuroscience came around and there was two. . I WAS SO STRESSED OUT AT THIS POINT. I had 3 semesters left and if I messed ANYTHING up, that was it. I’d have to retake the course. . I was doing SO GOOD...until Cardio came in my second to last semester. That class was TOUGH. If I didn’t get the grade I needed, I would be graduating in 2020 not 2019. . By the skin of my teeth, I PASSED THAT CARDIO COURSE. . One more semester. That’s it. I could do this. . I made it through. I went on my first clinical internship in the summer and am now finishing up my second. . One more internship separates me from graduation in May. . DO NOT GIVE UP. . Tomorrow, I’ll fill you all in on my future plans from here on out. ☺️ . #doitfortheprocess#lawofattraction#dowhatyoulove#wordsmatter#pursuepretty#lifesayings#thehappynow#powerofnow#thismoment#livecolorfully#livethelittlethings#solovelysofree#goalminded#makeitblissful#practicemindfulness#love#intentionallife#obsessed#tobecontinued#mystory#dptstudent#templedpt#studentphysicaltherapist#myjourney#meezurfit#meezurfitllc#buildingmybrand#mybrand#cheetahgirl#npcbikini

I remember when working for myself full-time seemed like a dream that was so far out of reach. It has now been 4 years since I made that decision after graduating college with my business degree. At first, it was possible only because my fears were quieted by my living at home... I thought, “It’s okay if this doesn’t work out, I’m still here at my dad’s!” There seemed to be minimal risk and minimal pressure, which allowed me to rest in knowing that just trying was okay. That first year of being full-time, I only made about $54,000 gross income. It was probably a $35,000 take home salary at the end of the year. It was less than any of my job offers had been for... by a lot. Yet I’m so glad I didn’t chase the money. I ran after freedom. Ask yourself, what would that look like in your life? I’m thankful for those humble beginnings. For the opportunity I had to build my business while still getting my own two feet off the ground and into adulthood. Little did I know I’d be back a couple years later with a husband and a slightly more successful business in tow, still seeking that comfort of knowing everything would be okay. Our idea of freedom looked a little different than most, but that was okay too. Sometimes the road of humility is the only path that leads to success. Actually... I would argue that is true in any circumstance. Humility is really a position of honor in disguise. It fosters creativity, solid leadership, and courage. You see others as higher and more important than yourself. That’s a life lesson I never could have learned from a book, and one that took nearly 18 months to sink in. It has changed my life. Taking the road less traveled led to a place we never would have discovered otherwise. Whether you’re living at home, living in a mansion, working a part time job on the side, or your business is your side hustle, whether you’re grossing $50,000 a year or $150,000 a year, we all have the same desire to connect, to love, to have our cups filled with laughter, our hearts with joy, and our souls filled with a steadfast peace. Chase after those things more than anything else.

I love the love of the Father. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because it transcends all our beliefs and ideas and loftiest notions about it. It’s greater than what we could even begin to imagine. And there’s something to be discovered every day, every minute, every second, in His love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And when He says He loves us. It’s means He loves every part of us. The good and the bad. The easy and the hard. Through the joy and through the mourning. Through the laughter and through the weeping. Through the finding and the seeking. It’s there. It’s always there. And that will never change.

Holly and Max’s wedding at @terrain_events has been blogged (link ⬆️). So many awesome vendors with the coolest couple. 🖤
I really loved reading y’alls thoughts on forgiveness the other day. It seems that forgiveness can have similar yet different meanings to everyone and can also differ from one experience to the next. ▸ One thing that seemed to stand out was the idea that forgiveness has so much to do with the ability to let ourselves heal from an experience. That when we’re able to open our hearts and accept someone’s actions that’s frees a space within our soul to heal and let light back in. How beautiful is that 💛
It snowed!!! #idahome has not been delivering on abundant snowfall this January, so when it lays down some dust we go for a walk, a snowball fight and you better believe a cookie and cocoa!! If it’s gotta Winter, I want snow! Thoughts? ☃️PC @elizabethalisonphoto

I’m not sure life will ever slow down for us. However, having this amazing family and just doing this mama thing helps keep my mind and heart focused. Night time is the hardest for me though, because it’s quiet and all the dark and weary feelings flood in.💔 . At my brothers funeral it was mentioned many times our sibling relationship and how it is like no other people have ever witnessed. It’s so true and that is why my heart aches. I share this with you because my 2 older boys attended the funeral, both were emotional, specifically my second oldest. After we talk about what he was feeling and he said, “I kept thinking about losing my own brother and how sad I would be because I love them so much.” I see the same close authentic relationship between my own kids and it makes my heart swell. ❤️👦🏻👦🏻👦🏻👧🏻👶🏻❤️ . There’s a hymn that has been sung so much on Sunday, and I know it’s been just for me. It’s brought me comfort. Tears always. I think nothing but of my Kirby. I will carry his heart in mine, always. 💙 . “Where can I turn for peace? Where is my solace When other sources cease to make me whole? When with a wounded heart, anger, or malice, I draw myself apart, Searching my soul? Where, when my aching grows, Where, when I languish, Where, in my need to know, where can I run? Where is the quiet hand to calm my anguish? Who, who can understand? He, only One. He answers privately, Reaches my reaching In my Gethsemane, Savior and Friend. Gentle the peace he finds for my beseeching. Constant he is and kind, Love without end.” ❤️🙏🏼😔 . . . . . . . #familyiseverything#griefjourney#opioidcrisis#addictionrecovery#addictionawareness#opioid#findingpeace#lds#iamachildofgod#hymns#siblings#brothersisterlove#siblinglove#twinbrother#icandoallthingsthroughchrist#lifestyleblogger
Notice : humans who don’t care to read or think about menstrual cycles, please pass on. . I’ve been thinking a lot about the battle that ensues every 28(ish) days. How every month it seems that my energy lags, my mind struggles, and my heart just can’t keep from cracking a little. . I’ve recently been asking God to show me more about being a woman, more about the power unlocked when women embrace their design. It’s a learning process, but I think the midterm exam of this crash course has been my cycle. How my body gives me signals meant just for me about what my body needs to live its best life. It’s just my choice to listen. . But more than anything, during those few days, I have noticed a pattern. The enemy comes after me when I am most a woman, when my body does things that a man’s cannot and my body is at its most instinctive. . This, I am coming to see, is not a coincidence. You see, what humanity has labeled as “unclean” or annoying, is part of the key to unlocking the gift that if a woman were to embrace all of who she is, not to minimize it, but to lean in to this divinely molded body of hers, she would find the holy and divine inside of her. . I don’t mean that there is a goddess living inside waiting to be unlocked through the right diva cup. Personally, the enemy comes at me most during this time, I believe, to distract me from the revelation that God is at work in my woman’s body. To make noise, drowning out the cycle of strength and renewal, the cleaning and tending that my body is instinctually undertaking. . Can I encourage each woman reading this to think about the times she is most herself, in tune to her body during its sacred rights of passage, and think about the emotions or situations that come up. They might be trying to tell you something. . Thank you @spirituallysexy, @morgandaycecil, and @palmerletteringco for your continued insight into the divine feminine and God’s work here!
