In going through all my old pictures preparing for my grandfather’s memorial slideshow, I came across a couple I feel compelled to share. The picture to the far left is of me at the age of 16; pre-babies; pre- heartbreak💔pre-loss; 💜pre-depression; 😞pre-unhealthy
The one in the middle is one my mother took of me 6 years ago doing what I always took comfort in; eating. I literally ate my feelings. I was the unhealthiest I’d been.
The one to the far right was me this past weekend. This is post-5 babies; post- heartbreak more times than I can count; post-insurmountable losses; post- mental illness and now I’m HEALTHY! I FEEL like I’m better than I was as a 16-year old. 😆
This isn’t about weight loss. This isn’t to sell you a product or an unattainable dream; this is me being raw and real and hopefully touching your life. This woman you see is confident and bad-ass, if I must say so myself. Have I had help from a system that works for MY body? Sure, and if you want to know about, cool, but that’s not all it’s about. The purpose of my sharing this with you is to encourage you to be the BAD-ASS you know you are. 💪🏻My only desire is to cheer for you while you’re on this journey.

I thought I never could see reality again...the beauty in things, the reasons and the unreasons.
The darkest moments made me believe life was a curse and there was nothing I could change.
I believed people were not worthy and the world was not for me....I simply gave up.
Sometimes the damage leaves scars that even through the course of our lives remain permanent markings of having loved and having lost.
Night is always darker before the dawn and life is the same, the hard times will pass, every thing will get better and the sun will shine brighter then ever.
You will grow and become someone whom you really like.
You will be a warrior, so much stronger than you have ever imagined.
I decided to give life a chance after being totally blind of hope.
It’s not easy to find yourself...to find yourself by yourself. I am trying to collect every broken piece and put it back together.
I have learned life can be amazing, and you can be the best version of you....you can find love within you.
Only you will save yourself from you.
Once you love yourself you will become light and independent of anyone or anything.
On your own you will bring happiness for yourself.
Don’t be naive people will not save you.
They are to busy taking care of their own life, I don’t blame them...not anymore. Everyone has their own shit to deal with.
Жизнерадостность — это не только признак здоровья, но еще и самое действенное средство, избавляющее от болезней.

sometimes I just sit and cry. I’m 3ish months away from year 24 and I literally never thought I would make it that far. from being this broken, hopeless girl, to God completely turning it around. gosh dang it. I’m grateful for my sweet Jesus. 😭 praying for you. you don’t have to stay in the place you’re at right now. you can get it of the depression. you can get out of the anxiety. you can ignore the suicide thoughts. praying for freedom. praying God shows His love for you in one way tonight. you are so beyond loved.

Tourmaline is considered a crystal of protection that grounds the user and connects them with the earth.
In ancient wisdom it was considered a strong energetic or electric crystal and this was how it connected the human with the earth. Modern research has shown that when heated or rubbed it does in fact become electrically charged with one end becoming positively charged and the other negative.
This makes the Tourmaline Gua Sha quite different from a jade crystal Gua Sha. Jade is famous for staying cool when in contact with the skin to tighten while a tourmaline Gua Sha is a warmer crystal and better for poor circulation and brings more colour to the face.
The scientific research on the Gua Sha has been outstanding with one scientific study showing that Gua Sha can Increase micro-circulation in the skin by up to 400%
This affect will last for 25 minutes after treatment.
It’s strange that it’s the dishonest that finds forgiveness so hard...
They conceal secrets that is the source of their bitterness...
If they were to open up and admit their ills then forgiveness is automatic.
Let’s prey for them 🙏
