If you’re struggling with the “Sunday Scaries,” you need a better Monday to wake up to. Maybe a Monday filled with purpose that lights you up, community that has your back, and meaningful work that feeds your soul. Life is too short to dread Mondays. 💜😘
“Healing isn’t about changing who you are. It’s about changing how you feel about who you are.” It’s all about perspective. Most of the time it is a battle within self that you’re unraveling layer by layer like an onion. Embrace, allow all those aspects of you. All of those lessons were blessings to allow you to discover your own strength, wisdom & power and most of all — to own it!

Yesterday I had on tights, a jacket, a hat...today I had to shed my layers. That is Georgia 🍑 for ya!! So, my knees have hurt for years. I have arthritis and there’s little to nothing you can do about it. Other than eating foods that won’t cause inflammation and eating foods that help with easing it. I’m making progress post-op with getting my heels closer to my glutes. My right side touches! The left side.. which is far worse... is still a ways off. Gotta love a good hip stretch too. I love my new @mckirdytrained shorts! I got the wrong size though, they’re a a tad loose. Oops. My bad. I started off with the stroller. The kid is getting BIG. The weight of the stroller, the boy, the diaper bag, the, roller, three bottles of water, snacks, toys ... hahaha. It was HARD. Plus of course the hills that come with living close ish to the mountains! I’m ready to get in consistent long runs again. It’s been since MARCH. Holy smokes times flies! @thepistolultra ... here we come! ❤️🎊

1-2-3 mousse washday 🙌🏼 . . I’m in LOVE with these washday curls. Lately I’ve been dealing with a bit of buildup, so today I decided to cut back the amount of products and just use mousse. Luckily, this experiment turned out alright :) My stress level has been pretty high lately, but I’m learning to take more time for me, my faith, and my mental health. Trying new things with my hair is one of my relaxers...do you know what I mean? . . Washday: 🙌🏼 @devacurl delight low-poo 🙌🏼 @nymbrands conditioner 🙌🏼 @alikaynaturals lemongrass leave in 🙌🏼 @pantene curl defining mousse . Application: 🙌🏼 scrub low-poo until my arms hurt 🙌🏼 rake conditioner onto the ends of my hair 🙌🏼 rinse out conditioner 🙌🏼 rake in the leave in 🙌🏼 rake in mousse, flipping hair side to side (do this twice) 🙌🏼 plop for 5 min 🙌🏼 apply more mousse 🙌🏼 diffuse to 50%, microplop a little bit 🙌🏼 diffuse to 100% 🙌🏼 scrunch out the crunch . . #curlyhair#curls#curlyhairstyles#curlygirl#curlygirlmethod#wavy#wavyhair#naturallycurlyhair#naturallycurly#embracethejourney#loveyourcurls
"Turn your weaknesses into your strengths" 🍀 I've been struggling with accepting that last year the universe stopped me so harshly in the tracks of building my business. A serious eye infection, surgeries, hospital, almost going blind in one eye. What the hell...why me!? But now I notice that more and more people walk up to me and say "Hey, you've got two different eye colours, that's so cool!". Wait, what? But... No. No more "but" and dwelling on this. I've got this and I'm embracing the strength that this struggle has brought me! And the different eye colour is the proof of my resilience. 💖🙏🏼💪🏼
Find that quiet place within yourself where your truth lives.Where there is no fear. ___ Love, purpose, passion and desire are calling... Will you answer? Or will you stay on this road, even if means giving up your true self and your truth? There is more to life than sacrifice. You deserve more than that. Xo 💋Renée Artwork by: Anuradha Rajkumari
I wasn’t worth the effort. I was overweight to the point that none of my clothes (even my maternity clothes) fit. Anxiety and depression ruled my life... I was either worried about everything or didn’t give a shit about anything. Eve was my only constant... Gotta give myself that one...there was never a time where I didn’t show up and try 110% for her. Showing up for myself on the other hand... 🤦🏻♀️ I felt myself slipping...I didn’t want to spend time with Quinton...didn’t want to read...watch tv...I didn’t even want to waste energy to shower some days. When Eve was down, I just wanted to lay in bed alone. I remember being ashamed of myself on so many levels that I wouldn’t even look at myself in the mirror... And then there was that absolutely atrocious night... It was after that that everything had to change, but I was too overwhelmed to know where to start. All I knew was that I had to start somewhere because I was going to drown otherwise. So I started watching what I ate...then I started pushing play on a workout for 20 minutes a day...then I started reading books that lifted me up...then I got involved in an accountability group when I felt myself slipping back again. And here I am...doing the same thing as when I started. Only now, I’ve had time to build up something amazing. You see...if you make consistent, small steps and let time do it’s thing...all of a sudden you will wake up one day realizing that you aren’t doing all of this because you hate WHERE you are...you’re doing all of it because you love WHO you are. So here I am. Embracing my journey, learning to navigate the struggle and beauty of it all, and intentionally loving myself regardless of my size or shape. And all I want for you is the same. I think of where I used to be and it is completely heartbreaking to know I am not the only one who goes through those struggles. I know if I can do this, so can you. You just need to take that first
Dear Kelly, Sweet Girl. Honey, Did It Slip Your Mind Again? You Do This. And You Get REALLY Busy. It's Noisy. And then... You Sit Still For a Bit. Shit Gets Quiet. And Here, You Remember Just How Fucking BRAVE You Are. It Doesn't Feel or Look Like You're "Killing It" right now. But Remember... It's Sneaky. So Hush. And Make. I Gotchu. #kellylostit . #drinkyourtea#crushit#bethebadass#wedontsettle#wedontgiveup
After a fun filled weekend our Monday morning requires a little extra help, kickstarting the day with our Motivate blend Mandarin, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Cardamom, Peppermint ✨⠀ ⠀ Are Monday mornings tough for you 🙈? ⠀ ⠀ It’s the simple rituals that create a healthier mindset ✨
When’s the last time you actually listened to music? When’s the last time you heard the words and listened to it’s message for what it really is? Lots of the music we listen to is filled with profanity. It’s encourages woman that the only way to be worthwhile is if you have a boyfriend. It makes worth defined by beauty. Listen to the words... listen to the message. What is it really saying? Demeaning women, encouraging suicide, among many other absolutely disgusting things. Music is a driving force. What we give power to... has power. Listen to your music. Mindfully listen. Then ask the question... is this something I should give another moment of my time listening to? Don’t eat dirt. Not when you’re worth so much more. ❤️
DOUBLE POST DAY And last day of my art series for now. 😢 But it may make a comeback. The final attribute is that... the Savior was a friend. It’s been in the moments I felt purely, indescribably alone that I’ve been found by Him and brought to light through Him. He doesn’t abandon you, even when you abandon Him. He’s always there, waiting. Hoping that you’ll come and find Him. He loves you more than anyone and anything. No matter how alone you feel He is there. He will not leave you comfortless. He will not abandon you. Not now and not ever. He is the best friend you will ever have. ❤️ You are not alone.

I tell you what, LM trainings never get easier. This weekend a group of amazing ladies and myself went through Les Mills BARRE initial training, and it was an challenge! Such a great workout, it is going to improve all of my classes with strength, toning, flexibility, and athleticism! Be ready to for me to add even more hops to everything! Kidding, kind of... seriously though each training allows me to grow, change, reflect, improve, and find out new things about myself each time. It’s a beautiful imperfect soul searching journey every time I step out of my comfort zone and it helps to have such a great team and our instructor @joshkeenum made it a wonderful, but challenging experience! #embracethejourney#alwaysgrowing#needfood 🤪😁😁
Been chatting alot in stores and groups about a topic no one wants to really talk about 💁🏼 - All the things we *dont* like about the holidays... - And no, I’m not some super Scrooge or Debbie downer.. there’s a lot of shit that goes down Around the holidays that kinda, well, sucks. - Take new year new me advertising for starters. - I fucking hate everything about the campaign of enjoying yourself too much with food, only to be make to feel guilty and shameful about it and then encouraged to do a massive overhaul because it’s Jan. 1st..! - Like, can’t we be encouraged to do things NOW that’ll help ensure we feel a certain way throughout the holidays and on Jan 1st? - Like, I get it, I’m in the fitness industry but I pride myself on *not* subscribing to that whole new year/new me/overhaul shit. Ever. Because it doesn’t work. Ever. Or for long, at least. - So here’s an offering: take a few minutes right now and decide what 1-2 areas of your health you want to prioritize now and continue to prioritize throughout the holidays. - Make it realistic like: I want to make sure I get 20 workouts done a month through the end of the year. Or: I want to make sure I eat at least 2 servings of veggies everyday. - Let’s just agree right now we aren’t gonna do the overhaul shit on the 1st and instead, make sure we’re staying aware of how we ultimately wanna feel now... and taking action on it. Hmmkay? 😘
Soooo many people over the years have asked me how I got “so good” 💁🏼♀️ at whatever - sales, recruiting, social media, word-smithing, presenting, etc. Ummm... with a LOT of practice and a LONG time being terrible. 🤣 Like, really terrible. Fear of public speaking 🤦🏼♀️learning new social platforms👩🏼💻keeping up with updates of technology🤳🏻dealing with humans who don’t do what they say they are gonna do🙄people who say NO to the product or business opportunity🥶people who say they’re interested but then they disappear👻 of course - yes it happens to us all! The difference is that I don’t dwell on that stuff. 🤷🏼♀️ You won’t hear me complaining to my Upline that my prospect ghosted me or that a team member fell off the face of the planet lol. 🏃🏼♀️ I am too busy looking for those who are looking for me and who REALLY want it. I wish some influencers would stop pretending that being good at this business comes naturally or easy. 🙅🏼♀️ It takes practice. Learning. Doing. And being coachable. Consistency is my middle name. I don’t give up. I know that I’ll hit my goal, it’s only a matter of consistency and skill. So if I keep learning, and never stop, it’s only a matter of time. The same goes for YOU. Want to be successful in your business? 📈 Make sure you are always upleveling your mindset, improving your skill set, and PRACTICE. Do it ugly. Do it even though you suck at it. Because it’s ONLY those who keep practicing and who are consistently showing up and doing the work DAILY (even just a little) who develop confidence. And you know what’s cool? 💰 Confidence smooths the path toward success - it’s your confidence that’s contagious and influences others to be confident, too, in whatever you’re sharing. The more CONFIDENCE you have, the more magnetic you’ll be in your business. Be one of the few that actually practices, daily,
