YOU GUYS! A mini shoji screen! It's been a few weekends in progress and a complete start over at a point, but it's finally done! My sweet mama's sewing machine I inherited, and our basement workshop, were put to very good use.
I really wanted a little screen to block off my meditation corner of the reading nook, and give me privacy while I'm Om-ing. ("Linda's little walled off world" as JT calls it. 🌍) The linens are a bit loose to allow for some shrinking the first time I wash them. They are super imperfect, and not level in parts, but that means they pretty much fit right in to our not always level, perfectly imperfect treehouse lovingly handiman'd by the prior owners.
I'm fully confident in my ability to do anything that perks my interest. I'm also fully confident it won't be perfect the first time! 🤓😂

“They” say a picture speaks a thousand words and this☝🏾is telling me a story... This “random” picture...God will use anyone and anything to talk to us & He knows I like a selfie so 🤷🏾♀️...see I don’t know everything and I’m for damn sure not perfect...But a few things in this 🌎 I KNOW... God, My Purpose, and I ❤️My Kids (all 4)...
🙏🏾I hear you & Thank You 🙏🏾 He had to remind me that I made the right choice, I met him halfway (barely, I did an army crawl to him, baby that was the longest halfway ever) and He’s got the rest...
Despite all that has happened in my life over the last several months I’m happy with where I am. At one point I questioned a number of things. People coming into my life when I least expected it. I was happy for the moment, but as unexpectedly as they came they left. Hurt and confused I thought I was destined to be alone and convinced no one could ever love me. Well I was wrong! I love me, for the first time I truly love myself....imperfections and all! #selflove#progress#perfectlyimperfect
Weight Loss Myth #517
I̶f̶ ̶I̶ ̶j̶u̶s̶t̶ ̶e̶a̶t̶ ̶h̶e̶a̶l̶t̶h̶y̶,̶ ̶I̶ ̶w̶o̶n̶'̶t̶ ̶g̶a̶i̶n̶ ̶w̶e̶i̶g̶h̶t̶.̶
If you eat past your satiety point, you WILL gain weigh.
It is what it is.
I've heard it many times before.
Even I fell for this big time... 🙈
And my clients now come to me because their previous mentors told them that all they need to do is swap their unhealthy foods for healthier ones and they'll lose weigh.
This may help because healthier foods are usually not as calorie dense and you can eat more in quantity.
But... you CAN still overeat! (For someone experiencing a binge, this is actually quite easy.) So no. It's not about just eating healthier.
It's about doing the deeper work and clearing the blocks that are causing the problem in the first place.
Stop focusing on managing the symptom (weight gain), start focusing on removing the cause. 💁🏻♀️
A much needed day spent with family and I am excited and ready to conquer the new week ahead! I am re-starting an 80 day workout program that I finished a couple weeks ago and this time I’m actually following the food plan better... ready to see where this journey takes me! I have my Vlog channel up and have some fun things planned for it. I get asked all the time about how to’s in photography so my first will be how I edit for Instagram (and some other great advice if your just starting out in photography). My husband and I will be doing a series on prepping and cooking easy healthy meals that even our kids love to eat. The vlog will be a space that I will share how to’s, health and fitness, and things I learn along the way on motherhood.
When cooking healthy, what are some of the challenges you have? I’d love to hear so we can include them in our blog series! #healthylifestyle
Tell me what you see ? I took these pictures on Saturday, this is part of Kellie and Ryan's property ... my eyes lit up as soon as I got to the small old plank bridge .. I see beauty , I see the flaws that make it pure perfection .. I take photos because I see so much more than just an old barn and some woods... 💙 #beautyisallaround#perfectlyimperfect#lovetheirbackyard#oneofmyhobbies 💕 🌲🌿🍁🍂🌻🌺☀️📷🎞
For so many years I have struggled with my skin. In high school, I had cystic acne and rosacea that made me want to stay home from school. I was so ashamed of how my skin looked because I compared myself to the other girls around me with clear and “flawless” faces. I was teased most of my life for having freckles and not being able to get tan. ...
In adulthood, my rosacea flare ups have gotten worst and I have to be honest: it’s brought me back to that place of feeling inferior for having oily skin. In the last year, it has gotten worse and I’ve had to really work on my self-confidence. Every day is different in my body and now it seems so ridiculous to be so hard on myself for it. Even though my skin is different and my body is different and my brain is different that doesn’t mean that there’s anything wrong with me. Everyone has their insecurities ESPECIALLY because of what the media has been shoving down our throats since birth. We’ve been shown images that aren’t real. The retouching we see in magazines and advertisements are not. Real. Why hold ourselves to a standard to something that is a heavily filtered version of reality?
It’s difficult for me to share these images of myself with no makeup on my really, really high def camera. But I feel inspired to because there are so many other young people who feel the same way. I want you all to know that you are not your scars or your acne or any parts of your outer appearance that society has deemed “flaws.” There is SO much more to life than striving for an impossible expectation. And as Katy Perry always says, “perfect is boring.” 💖
