This lil throwback of the twins is giving me all the spring & summer fever feels but it also got me thinking about how life is funny sometimes....… I remember when the twins were 1, I coaxed Mike into buying this tiny outside playhouse (and not only do they love it but their baby sister absolutely loves it now too💕).
He didn’t want to spend the $100 ($50 per child). Didn’t see the value. ...That was until he saw the JOY it brought the twins & even NOW Fallon. 🤔And that got me thinking how so often we are afraid to invest in ourselves - to spend just 1 1/2x what this little house costs on our HEALTH. When we can head into #target and BLOW way more without even trying. 🎯🤦♀️ 💩🤭🙄😬 Oh booyyyy 🙋🏼♀️ yep been there & still to this day targeting is dangerous territory! 🤦🏼♀️ . #truth 2 years ago I didn’t want to invest in my health either bc I was afraid I would fail - like Mike was afraid this little house would be a waste of money.
BUT DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED???
My LIFE WAS CHANGED!!
I was committed bc I DID INVEST.
I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it (times 2) and since I had a little skin in the game, I was even more driven.🙅🏼♀️
Ready to invest in your HEALTH, your FUTURE , YOUR JOY?
Getting past that mental hurdle of spending money, then seeing the possibilities, & then the results is what has kept me here, accountable, & living my best life daily (and convincing my husband to invest in the things that matter too). 😉😘
💜🤸🏼♀️🤸🏻♂️👌🏻💪🏻Just imagine what’s possible when we start dropping our fears, our excuses, & start taking action? (YOU get to play in the little house too ...that’s what! ). 🤸🏼♀️😎😜 #yourhealthmatters#withouthealthyouhavenothing#imcheeringforyou#tbt ❤️ #tbthursday#throwbackthursday#tbt
My tulips are starting to peek up and I couldn’t be more excited! We are in the midst of planning out our backyard for the next 20 years and it’s so fun to dream and envision the kids growing up here. We are coming up on the 2 year anniversary of our forever home and I’m just so grateful. We spent years renting, saving, and recovering from a foreclosure that every project we complete is one more step to making our house “us”. Came across an old blog post I wrote called “waiting for my dream home” in case you need a little encouragement! I’ll post the link in comments!! //📷: @erin_thenestedhouse
What will you choose? — In a world where so many choices are demanded of you every single day, don’t forget that you have the choice to choose YOURSELF.⠀
To choose what you need today & everyday to keep going and growing. To choose to move away from what’s inhibiting you from growing as a person. To choose to release what’s not working. And to choose where you’re headed next. ⠀
Today, I choose to start again through the love I have within. I choose to outgrow the old & embrace the unknown in the new. ⠀
Today, and everyday, what will you decide to choose?
