  • Recently, I got a text from a sweet friend. She seemed concerned because from what she saw in my stories, to her it basically seemed like all I do is take care of my boyfriend’s kids and not have my own life.
    .
    “I just never see anything about friends.”
    .
    While I do know people in this area, I guess I don’t “hang out” with friends alone too often. But I don’t see a problem with that. And contrary to how much I do share, I don’t document every second of my day. I don’t feel the need to go out and party. I’m a homebody. It’s cold outside, my home is warm. We have a friend couple that we see a handful of times a month. Andrew works at night during the week, so the weekends that are kid free, I want to spend with him.

    I feel content, guys.
    This relationship is stable.
    This relationship has even give and take.
    We actually enjoy each other’s company.
    I love spending my mornings with Lily while her brother and sister are at school.
    .
    🥰I love you if you feel I’m not happy or that you’re confused by my life, so thank you for caring, but I’m GOOOOOOOOOD, k?

  • “I can’t workout because I have kids” 🚫Wrong🚫 Show your kids what it means to take care of yourself every day, be a role model for them and their growing minds/bodies. I talked about this in my story the other day, but children are always watching - they see how you eat, they see how you handle stress, they watch how you treat other people, they observe how you deal with your feelings. They soak in all that information like little sponges, so give them your absolute best all the time.

  • What does it mean to have high hopes? Is hope good?! Hell yes it is! What isn’t good is when you live just in hopes, dreams and wishes.

    You have to have vision, belief, action and grit in there. Hope won’t get you very far but without it, you absolutely won’t go far at all.

    So friends, get high hopes, create the vision you want and DO IT!! Don’t sit back, you are made for sooo much. This is your one life here on earth. Make it one you would be jealous of. ♥️👊🏼 #highhopes #vision

  • The sassy best friend - she's my favorite archetype.⁣

    In real life, she is a compilation of several chosen sisters, fulfilling such a unique role in my life as a Grown A** Woman: laugh with me, cry with me, celebrate me, fight with me, and set me straight when I lose my mind and act a fool.⁣

    Currently, 4 people have read or are reading my draft. Two have asked for More Maggie - who fulfills this role for my protagonist and adds layer of color and perspective to the story. ⁣

    I'd love for you to tag your "Maggie" and tell me how what makes her your special unicorn. ⁣💜🦄☀️

  • Anyone else feeling this reality?! 🙋🏻‍♀️ I grew up in a home where how we visually presented ourselves was important. I find myself keeping to those same values as a #stepmom - but more often than not it causes a lot of stress for me. .....
    I have a much more expensive taste in #clothes than the rest of my #blendedfamily and I get a ton of anxiety whenever it comes to my kids rotating houses and what they’re wearing. Sometimes I even find myself asking my #stepdaughter not to wear certain outfits to the BM’s because the things she wears back to my house are half the price of what I buy. Is this terrible?! 😶 I feel ashamed but my hard earned money shouldn’t have to go to supporting the other house, right? I wouldn’t be as opposed if she wore them back and forth but I’ve experienced too many outfits getting “lost” and never worn again after they leave me... 🙄🙄 #questions #mom #parenting #coparenting #family #kids

  • Day 10 of 42 is a STRONGER day. Sometimes I feel strong when I'm working out. Other times I feel like a limp noodle and my legs shake like a newborn giraffe. It's all part of the process!

    .
    We are are doing a team wide book challenge focused around Mel Robbins' book THE FIVE SECOND RULE. (one of my favs & I'm excited to read it again!). The THEORY is simple.👇🏼
    .
    When you want to do something, but your feeling yourself hesitating because of fear/doubt, etc., that’s when you use the Rule. You have 🖐🏼 seconds. Start counting backward to yourself, 5-4-3-2-1, then DO IT! Because if you don’t move within 5 seconds, your brain will kill the idea and you’ll talk yourself out of doing it.
    .
    So here I am. "Should I go and buy new workout clothes? 🤔"
    .
    5...4...3...2...1
    .
    And I'm OUT!! 😂✌🏼🚀
    .
    {Disclaimer: I'm not really sure that is exactly what the "rule" is for, but today I'm going with it! 💁🏼‍♀️}
