Hashtags #findingjoy for Instagram

this takes a lot of life, self, honest inventory. It’s a hard, hard, hard thing. Especially when you know you’ve hurt others, intentionally or unintentionally! Do I love myself? I am healing and working on that, I want to love myself and never hurt anyone ever again, truly. I am so grateful for the opportunity we have, to ask forgiveness from others, ourselves and our Savior who is a perfect example and provided a way we can be whole again. It’s a wonderful thing. #goals #gratitude #findingjoy #youdonthavetobehealedtohelp

#findingjoy Day 9
My pod chair is a constant source of joy this summer! Here's a pic of bubs and I cosied up in it today. I always dreamed of having a hammock in my home and this is even better. Big enough for two and you can even lie down in it.

There’s some exciting plans afoot on this gentle old life. But how do you keep your head about you, and your organisation on point and your mind clear for exciting things? How do you stay level whilst also enjoying the ride? Have I set myself, and us! up for failure in believing we can have gentle and exciting lives? I don’t think so, because gentle living means that we’re in flow with our energy and the way we feel, and the direction we want to move in. At some points this will be quiet, at others fast, at some points purposeful isolation, at others groups and communities. It’s where we are happiest, most free in the moment. The common themes amongst those are in being confident to create what you need, and making decisions that help you (and often others around you) to structure a life that feels really really good, uniquely to you. So I don’t have to stay too level headed, it’s all good.

2018 wasn't exactly a good year for me and 2019 isnt starting so great. But in the midst of losing my job and a miscarriage all within a month, I cant help but sit and wonder why, Why me? What did I do wrong? When will I catch a break? When will the pain go away? But ultimately all I can do is trust God. Trust his plan and his promises. I have no idea when or how but I do know that there is purpose in my pain that will bring Joy one day. Until then, I'll just... #trustinhim #waitingonmyjoy #findingjoy #itllcome #overcomer #infertilitysucks #endometriosis #infertilityjourney #infertility #brokenhearted

Learning to play...
Frustration, failure, growth...
Yesterday was spent creating this mess...by the time I'd finished I felt unfulfilled and frustrated...not where I wanted to be.
Needless to say, this piece will be sanded and reworked but just playing around with collage app has revealed some amazing textures...
Every cloud and all that!

“Joy is not a season, it’s a way of living.” -
Kalley Heiligenthal @kalleyheili
I love this picture of Atlas, I snapped it during this birthday party. He wanted to have a dance party and then pick the play list (it was a good play list)! He had no reservations showing his moves off and enjoying the music and energy of his party. One of my biggest goals as a parent: keep their wild, fun loving spirits alive and curious.
I’m going to catalog moments of my life that I want to remember because I was happy. I want to train my brain to see happiness in everyday. I’ll share them under the #abrightspot I hope you’ll join me too.

Joy can be found in any day. It may not seem like it, I know I don’t feel like it all the time. .
It may look like a sick baby, a harsh boss, a divorce or another round of chemo. But God sees those pains in you, in your everyday. He is there for you. Call out to him. .
Joy is in every little place. You just have to look in between the cracks. .

I created this course because I have a passion to inspire you to action. The action of a more purposeful and intentional life. Through sharing my personal experience and holding your hand for a week, I’m gonna help you align your work and life load so that your priorities stay upfront and center. I’ll teach you how to slow down, be more mindful, take shit off your plate, and leave you with a new perspective. Plus, a bonus of some very crucial shit. All stuff I wish I had done and taken care of prior to losing my late husband, Eric. Maybe he and I wouldn’t have lost our way as a couple. We wouldn’t have gotten our priorities out of wack. We would have been more prepared for the unexpected. At least it’s something that I can share with you... Join me! Link is in the bio. Class starts Monday. Limited Seating!

After that workout and going faster I’m connecting with my step 😉 Confession - I had a Huge sobbing breakdown on the floor when Shaun said: We don’t break when we’re breaking through plateaus! 🤯 💥Wow!💥 So often I do the hard work 💪- go the distance🏃‍♀️and break inches from the finish line.😫 Am I scared of success? Failure? Imperfection? Responsibility? Expectations? Probably all of the above ☝️ - too often I accepted the break as permission to not finish - to not see something through.
Imagining my imperfect broken messed up journey was too ugly, too unworthy to celebrate at the finish line. 😔

Transformation is happening - physical, mental, spiritual! See you at the finish line - limping or sprinting - with our beautiful scars, our courageous imperfections, and our amazingly messy victories!!! You got this - We all got this 😉

This was my commute to lunch today.⠀

I work mainly online, so I don't have to walk far to get to work, and I realised recently I've not been walking that much at all.⠀

When I was in London I used to walk LOADS! But here it's so easy to just drive places.⠀

Easy, but doesn't feel great, if I've not got outside and hung out with nature I find being creative, intuitive and productive so much harder! And also my body feels all out of sorts.⠀

So I've been adding things into my to do list I can walk to. Like today I choose to have lunch at one of my favourite cafes an hours walk away round the coast. ⠀

And when there are views like this it's a bit crazy not to enjoy them!⠀

If you're struggling to get enough exercise in, finding it hard to take care of yourself or need help connecting to your intuition, try increasing how much connection with nature you have by taking mini walks during your day.⠀

And for specific advanced techniques on clearing out what's stopping you really taking good care of yourself and tuning into your intuition, come join me on my online group programme starting in February. ⠀

If your approach to food is to restrict and deprive, I encourage you to do a little more research 😬
___
Your body NEEDS food to function. Focus on real foods when you can! Spend a little time every week to cook in bulk so that you can throw it in the microwave throughout the week!
___
If I didn’t have quick and easy, I would be eating whatever I could get my hands on all day long 😅 this lunch took me all of 5 minutes - zapped the veggies in the microwave while I cooked the eggs 🍳
___
If food is something you struggle with, keep it simple! It doesn’t need to be complicated. Don’t know where to start?! Message me! Let’s get you the tools to be successful 💚💚💛💛❤️

The post I shared earlier today was simply to make you laugh, I don’t think it really matters if all you want to show are the best looking photos of you, or share only the best memories you have with your family... ♥️
Mike bought me a fancy camera, & it’s been fun to capture special memories with my family & then express my feelings about the picture. The pretty pictures I capture & the words have special meaning to me. I hope I can inspire, uplift, or make you laugh with what I share, but sometimes I feel like the person who gains the most from sharing their heart, is the one behind the words. ♥️
And sometimes I choose to share pieces of my life where my heart has been consumed with pain. I have shared my experiences with the intention to inspire hope for others who are suffering. If I can help one of you, it is worth it to me. And I will forever be grateful for all of you who have shared kind words, love, & prayers. There really is strength in numbers.
But just because I choose to share some experiences that are hard, it doesn’t mean that I want to share all the hard moments. And it’s ok if someone doesn’t want to share ANY hard moments on social media. Most of the time, I don’t want to take pictures, or write about, or think about some of the hard moments in my life because I want to let those experiences go & not think about them again.
On the other hand, some of my pain, like losing my brother & my mom’s cancer diagnosis, I never want to forget because of the lessons I have learned & how it has shaped my life.
♥️
And another part that I want to share on this platform is the fun moments of our lives, where it’s not a staged photo or a pretty picture, its just a memory where we are having fun, or something that will make you laugh because life can be hard, & like a beautiful woman once said, you can either laugh your way through life or cry. She chose to laugh because crying gave her a headache. ✨Choosing to laugh & create happiness is what I aim to do on most days! ♥️😊

TFW you're on a super tight budget and living without credit cards and going to the grocery store with only so much cash and have to get the essentials but also really want to prioritize and treat yourself to fresh flowers but then you don't quite have enough for all the food and you're embarrassed and the checker is totally non-judgemental and "buys" you the flowers anyway so that you can still get the sorbet. ✨💗✨#traderjoes #lovethatplace #freshflowersforeverybody #budgeting #timesaretough #bekind #payitforward #findingjoy

I’ve barley left my house in 3 days and I’m literally not even upset about it {lol} it’s kind of crazy when I look at this business realizing that I’m helping more people daily invest in themselves than I ever did combined at every other job I had ...and I think it’s fun when I share with others that I actually fell in love with this business opportunity BEFORE the healthy lifestyle it keeps me accountable to

I NEEDED more freedom in my life, more time and more money over all that I NEEDED a purpose (I also tried another online business before this and BOMBED because I totally suck at selling things) what I had to find was something that was going to change lives

4 years in that purpose grows keeping me more accountable on my own health while watching you guys break through your plateaus...just know you don’t need to understand every part of this opportunity before jumping in because when you’re passionate in truly helping others you’re eager to learn how to succeed at it and link arms with others who want to have fun changing lives along side you

My day started with good intentions.
🥚
You can see I had my protein, lots of veggies with breakfast, healthy fats...carbs for energy. I drank a bottle of water before even my coffee!! I did everything that I know my body needs to be fueled properly for the day.
☕️
Then....life happened!!
🤷‍♀️
A sick baby happened. Fever happened. Vomiting happened. Not wanting to sleep happened. Not wanting to be left alone happened. Needing to be extra loved happened.
❤️
I am ok with alllllllll of that. But it makes for an exhausting day, and not a lot of hands. Add on the fact that my Fitbit tells me I’ve slept 12 hours since Saturday...making a meal with one hand balancing a baby with the other was not on my priority list today. 🌼
Loving my little man through today...that was my priority.
🦋
So, lunch, was, welllll interesting. Simple, and delicious. Nutritious?? Not as much as my meals have been as of late, but it sure as hell hit the spot!!
🤣
Then supper, was even less inspired. A shake!! That’s it. Now I am NOT AT ALL A SHAKE PERSON!! I LOVE food!! Like love love love it!! What I am though is someone who likes to know I am fueling my body for the energy I am asking it to give me in return. And that just didn’t happen today. ⭐️
So, instead of having pizza, Kraft dinner, Chinese food or a grilled cheese sandwich...all of which went through my mind...at 9pm. I grabbed a shake, for me, it’s not s meal replacement. It’s a way to know that I am getting the nutrients my body needs...even on the days where what I eat is far less than perfect.
❤️
Now, I am off to bed, I am aiming to add a significant number of hours into those 12 hours tonight. Wish me luck. 😴😴
❤️
😴

Sometimes you just have to sit back.... and watch it all play out. .
I’ve been watching this motion picture for 9 years now. .
.
Always amazed at how he’s evolving into such a loving, creative and compassionate being. .
I’m proud to be this human’s mom, no doubt. Because of him, I live, I strive, I love and I never give up! .
.
.
Hug the ones you love a little longer, listen a little closer, ask more questions, forgive quicker, smile more, and be present... .

Being a parent is tricky.
No rule book.
No handbook.
Just a million chances to do your best!
And in case nobody has told you, you’re doing a great job!
.
Life is beautiful and tomorrow is never a promise, but right now is. .
Enjoy the moments. .

Gratitude diary, it's been too long my friend. But just like that I've picked it back up, drawn some highlights from our Christmas break with the kids and now I'm constantly seeking gratitude during my day so I can jot it down at night before bed. Beats scrolling the feed any day. 😉
The left hand page was our trip to the @twosedm and the right was the kids second visit to @royal_alberta_museum - both perfect days. We are so lucky to have such world class facilities in driving distances from our home. ❤️
