“I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I'm meant to be, this is me
Look out 'cause here I come
And I'm marching on to the beat I drum
I'm not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me” This is me - The Greatest Showman
In a world we are told to be a certain way, to believe what people want us to believe and believe because we broken and not perfect there is no place for us.
Today I want to declare that this is me. I’m a mom, my body is not perfect but it carried my two sons and brought them into this world. My past is not perfect but that is okay because it made me who I am today and I know my scars are beautiful to God and I will help others fight the same battles I had to.
None of us are perfect or the same! Let’s try be more accepting of our differences, learn to celebrate life and just be grateful for the life we have been gifted and genuinely enjoy it.
As if today couldn’t get any better...my return to the @kempinski_munich was in none other than the #ludwig suite. Then to find surprises and gifts from friends and family around the world. #humble and #grateful . Thank @hannahinz and Holger Schroth for an unforgettable birthday stay.
Almighty God's Blessings 🙏🏻
God's able to keep you from falling. Once you really start to trust God and walk by faith everything else will fall into place, don't give up are get weary hearted. Stand on God's faithfulness, no matter what obstacles may come the creator the one an only almighty God can fix every situation.🙏🏻
God loves you!!!God's got this!!! #HUMBLE 🙏🏻
LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE 2018🌻🌻🌻🌻
I’m just going to leave this here. I read something very similar on another post today and thought to myself, “For all of the people who think they have it bad... remember that what you feel inside and the struggles you have with feelings that are so vivid you can’t build up the courage and mind strength to overcome them and say the right thing... yeah well, the guy next to you feels just as intense about his problems. Oh and your friend who you’ve cut out also feels that way. But you do you boo boo and we will see at the end of the day who sticks by yours side; because the sad truth is that most people do nice things for their own satisfaction and when they feel uncomfortable, they change. But not today Satan! Be kind. Be humble. Be honorable and respectful. Then the favor will always be returned to you. And then you wonder why people turn their backs on you. You always reap what you sow.”
Once upon a time, I cared + tried to get Maven Made products into the hands of "influencers" (this term, yikes). In efforts to reach out to a few, the process felt completely unnatural + uncomfortable. I was forcing a connection, alignment + attention to a product that would hopefully result in a testimonial or review. Nothing resulted from my awkward outbounding + I quickly abandoned the whole idea. Not because I wasn't getting results, because it wasn't me.
Being authentic shows up in many forms, especially when building + navigating a business. For my journey, abundance + "exposure" materializes naturally when I am aligned with what I'm putting out into the world. Getting myself in front of blogger or celebrity hands has never been my idea of success (although it has happened unintentionally). Once I embraced this, abundance has increased with no pedestal or force involved.
The "can be" part-- Unfortunately we still reside in a world where skin color, gender identity, income level + other social constructs determine when + how abundance takes or does not take form. Abundance is not only monetary, it can be the influx of authentic connections, the rise of awareness or anything else that makes your heart feel full. This is the reminder that keeps it all going for me. You, the customer/community/listening ear have provided so much magic, alignment + opportunity that it is hard to even put into words. 🖤
