Breakdowns and breakthroughs are opposite sides of the same coin. Whenever there is a breakdown occurring, trust that a new understanding and a new life is about to begin for you. Breakdowns and breakthroughs go hand-in-hand. The mistake we often make is that we get caught up in the breakdown itself and we use it as an excuse to play the victim of our lives instead of realizing the gift that it really is.

Don’t curse the breakdown; praise it #theweexpo

💚 “Going to empowerment 4 girls camp has definitely made me a #stronger, healthier, happier girl. Going to these #camps have helped improve me into #loving myself even more. It is really a journey of self-discovery.
————————————
🌟 It is a place where a girl can be a girl. It has helped me with my shyness and overcomes the fear of being myself around new people. There you will learn how to love yourself and tell yourself you are #beautiful and no matter what other people think someone will always be there to look past your flaws.
————————————
🌈 I know that this camp is a safe place and you are able to be yourself and enjoy #yoga and different #meditations and activities. I feel #inspired to love myself and #respect myself every time I leave one of her camps I am always #happy to go back and make even more #friends. ————————————
🌸 I always feel #inspired and #empowered when I leave Kristen's camp. I always take what I learn from her camps and use in my everyday life. I can't wait to go to Kristen's next camp.” ~Yvonne Elise (Age 13) 💚☮️🌈🧘🏼‍♀️🤗 #empowerment4girls #buildconfidence #meetnewfriends #community #sisterhood #strongertogether #joinus

Most times we forget to these things because we are so busy chasing our dream life. But we need gentle reminders like this and be consciously mindful to do so every now and then.⁣

Thanks to the @michelin-Starr Plant, @flatrockelementary with @andersondistrict3 now has a Tramedikit™ in every classroom's emergency bag. The district started equipping each of their schools with Tramedikits™ last year so the 18 donated kits help provide 100% coverage for the elementary school.

Earlier this morning I was tagged in a post that had me thinking... “For what in your life are you most grateful?” Hmmm... Gratitude for all the good in your life is a given. Being grateful for all the good is easy, and as much gratitude as I have for my blessings, my babies, my husband, family and friends; and this may seem odd to most but these days I am most grateful for my rough childhood, the hardships and struggles, the heartache and suffering, people who have come and gone, alive and deceased.
I chose this photo for this post because it was taken during one of the most emotionally draining and heartbreaking moments I’ve experienced up until that point.
Life has a tendency of knocking us down several times, it shows us things we don’t wanted to see. We experience sadness and failures. The harder you fall the stronger you are when you rise up. “Warriors are not born and they are not made... Warriors create themselves through trial and error, pain and suffering, and the ability to conquer their own faults...”
My faith is strong, my heart resilient, and my mind is aware.
Now I ask...
What in your life are you most grateful for?

DEAD Y'ALL❗I could barely get the selfie in before I had to just sit down and BREATHE 🤣 And the funny part? I was so sore today that I modified A LOT and still got a killer workout in 💪 It is OKAY to MODIFY! 👀

BOGO (Buy One Get One) is here which basically means it’s the perfect time for me to share more of my experiences with essential oils but also invite you to start your essential oil journey or build your collection ☺️ It started yesterday so there is only 48 hours to go, but if you buy a bottle of DigestZen you will receive a Lemongrass & Rosemary for FREE!
If you buy Tumeric you will receive a roller bottle of Past Tense for FREE!
And if you buy Lemon Myrtle you will receive Tangerine for FREE 👏

I’m going to start with DigestZen because it’s a must have in every household, especially ours! Think of everything related to digestion, sore tummy’s, bloated bellies, a bit of gas, maybe even gastro, more serious conditions that have been presenting, like its name it will create an element of zen and bring comfort back into your world again. Recently I had sinusitis and this was an oil that I would never have considered but with all the cooling and calming properties it helped in clearing it, especially the pain. It’s one I also recommend when feeling stuck because it gets this moving, both physically and emotionally. It’s not just food that we need to digest, situations, experiences, taking in a lot of information at once, DigestZen can support the process.
You can use this oil topically on your body, rubbed deeply into your core, on the bottom of your feet or even diffused so the whole family can breathe in. It smells very much like aniseed so for those who like liquorice or ouzo, you might appreciate in a glass with water. We have used most nights this week on a special little boy, diluted with some fractionated coconut oil on the bottom of his feet for grizzled after feeds when mummy has accidentally eaten the wrong thing! But again, one of the most popular out there it’s one to definitely add to your collection or get started with 💙

Rosemary is the oil of transition and knowledge, I love that knowledge is mentioned here because it relates to memory which this oil is excellent for amongst other things. It smells so refreshing, not like the plant, these oils are 50-70 times more powerful than herbs!

Day 9: 𝗖𝗛𝗔𝗡𝗚𝗘 .

This morning I lost my shit... yup, it happened after my morning ritual (meditation). F**€!! All I could do was bitch a little, cry and surrender... What happened? I just had a zen moment and then... I let something hit me hard...
I'll spare you all the details as I'm still processing... but I can tell you one thing... .

CHANGE ain't easy... .

Also.. .

CHANGE is uncomfortable, .

but it is also necessary... .

CHANGE is letting go of control, .

but  it is also accepting... .

CHANGE is asking questions, .

but it is also being okay with no answers... for now... .

This one is big.. 👉👉 𝗖𝗛𝗔𝗡𝗚𝗘 𝗜𝗦 𝗧𝗥𝗨𝗦𝗧𝗜𝗡𝗚 that all that is happening is for a bigger reason, for me and everyone involved. .

That even with all the spiritual tools, the positive mindset, the great attitude... you might be reminded of what you are made of.  It might not make sense now, but ot already does to your soul. .

𝗔𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝘂𝗴𝗴𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝘁𝗼 𝗺𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝘀𝗲𝗻𝘀𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗮𝗻𝘆𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴? ~ let it got.  Take some alone time, don't question, just breathe into it... feel a great deep love and compassion towards yourself because you already have gone through lots of changes... Physical growth from the time you were born.  Emotional growth, realizing that there's more to feeling happy or sad.  Spiritual growth, knowing that the power and will comes from within.  That God is in you, and nothing happens outside of you. .

Again, if you are resisting change because it looks scary, now that it's a process; it is for a short time and that you are not alone! .

Part 3 of 3: The next steps are up to him and it is so hard to hold onto hope when I have been let down and disappointed so many times before.  The walls that I have built since I was a young child want to come up so badly. The urge to get shitty and disconnect are really strong right now.  I am terrified to be positive. Hope scares the hell out of me. I’m in a constant battle trying to figure out the balance of open, loving support and self preservation.  I talked to my mom a lot about going to counseling and working on the parts of this equation that we have control over: ourselves. As much as I am afraid for myself, I am even more terrified for my mom.  She has worked so hard over the past few years to make positive change in her life and I know that every fiber of her being wants my dad to be healthy and sober, but she can’t sacrifice herself for him anymore.  If my dad is willing to do the hard work necessary to become sober, then we can be all in. But I told my mom, we can NOT support him anymore if he is going to choose to kill himself one drink at a time. It will kill us too.  I am also really scared of the environment that my dad is going back to in Michigan. He needs his friends and family to rally around him and cheer him on if he chooses to become sober. Unfortunately, since most of the people he surrounds himself with are also alcoholics, I’m afraid he will receive sarcasm, mockery, baiting, and frankly sabotage instead of the vital support he needs.  It will be up to him to be stronger than all of that and choose his health, his family, and his life over all of the obstacles. And while I don’t have control over what he chooses to do, I have committed to taking the steps necessary to make sure I am taking care of myself. We move to Sarasota, Florida on December 1st and I am going to start going to Al-Anon meetings when we get there.  Frankly, it’s long overdue that I join the Al-Anon community. No matter what the future holds, I am determined to keep making healthy choices for myself. I am determined that the cycle of alcoholism in my family ends with me. My children will never know this pain; I won’t allow it.

If you ever doubt your capabilities remember this: “You were born the best. ...
So you tell me, who won the first race you ever entered? You. You, I – we won that race with three-hundred-million-to-one odds against us. We come into this world with greatness already sewn into the fabric of our DNA. We just need to acknowledge our potential and remember and surrender to who we already are.” -Bo Eason, There’s No Plan B For Your A-Game.

My Friends...it’s been inside you all along. Believe in yourself again. Believe in your greatness and step into it fully! I believe in you! 💓

Laughter really is the best medicine. Laughter with friends is magic! ✨
⠀⠀
This week I’ve been struggling with self doubt, guilt, bitterness, and frustration, among other things. I’ve prayed and shed some tears...and then I called my friend. ⠀⠀
Sometimes you just need to talk to someone who gets it. And she does. Not only does she get it, but she listens with no judgement and guides in love. I have a handful of amazing women in my life, but I’m glad I called her. ⠀⠀
Find your tribe! They will enrich your life and help you find your way through the bad days. Love you, @loveunicorntribe
⠀⠀
Tag the people in your life who have helped you through the bad days, and let them know you love them! #findyourtribe #loveyourtribe ⠀⠀

This week I’ve been struggling with self doubt, guilt, bitterness, and frustration, among other things. I’ve prayed and shed some tears...and then I called my friend. ⠀⠀
Sometimes you just need to talk to someone who gets it. And she does. Not only does she get it, but she listens with no judgement and guides in love. I have a handful of amazing women in my life, but I’m glad I called her. ⠀⠀
Find your tribe! They will enrich your life and help you find your way through the bad days. Love you, @loveunicorntribe
⠀⠀
Tag the people in your life who have helped you through the bad days, and let them know you love them! #findyourtribe #loveyourtribe ⠀⠀

Part 2 of 3: Holding my father’s trembling hand while he went through withdrawals is now something I can say I’ve done.  I sat there shaking from rage. I was angry that I was angry. I was angry that instead of feeling compassion or sad for what my dad was going through, that instead I was pissed at him.  In those moments, I wanted to be anywhere other than there. Now, after a bit of sleep and a chance to digest everything, I am glad I was there. I’m also glad I didn’t just unload my rage onto him.  Over the past few years I have been working really hard to understand my emotions and to use them as tools instead of allowing them to use me. Through that practice I was able to feel and acknowledge the emotions that were washing over me, but take the time I needed to ask myself important questions like: “Why do I feel this way?” “What is within my control in this situation?” “What do I want to do with these emotions?” “Is my reaction going to open a vulnerable conversation and create a safe space for healing, or is it going to create shame and build walls?” I’m by no means perfect at this, but luckily this time around it served me well and I think I did my best in this very difficult situation. I had a few different thoughts on how I wanted to handle everything and in the end I chose to lovingly let my dad know that I’m glad he is ok. I acknowledged that he was 5 days into sobriety and encouraged him to keep going. I let him know that I was there to support his journey to sobriety. I told him he was strong and capable of doing this. I reminded him that he is loved and that I want him to live and be healthy.

What I find interesting is that it is usually not a financial issue that has so many people living and dying from boredom, so don’t get caught up in the money excuse, because it appears to be more a matter of self-doubt — not believing in your ability; not trusting your instincts — and generally questioning your self-worth.

Your psyche naturally knows how to heal and let go of what’s holding you back from feeling desirable, but you’ve been conditioned against doing that. ⁠
⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
To release trauma, you need to lean into the emotions of pain, sadness and anger - really feel it and allow it to be expressed through you. You’ve been taught not to feel your emotions because the ‘crazy’ or 'emotional’ woman is less desirable, and so we all have this learned behaviour where we suppress our true emotional state. You may put on a brave face and continue with your affirmations: “I am desirable”, but bottling it up doesn’t work. ⁠
⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠
You’ll be triggered by the same thing over and over and over again and given opportunities to heal over and over and over again until you finally decide to commit to it.⁠ If you're ready to step up and commit to rewriting a bright future this is your invitation to join me in TPP. Early bird is only available this month! .⁠

Those who are too afraid to to do anything for fear of failure (or embarrassment or whatever else they fear), have lost not only the opportunity for failure, but any possibility of success, no matter how limited it might have been.
A ship in a habor is safe, but this is not what a ship is built for”. I’m not saying everyone should stupidly risk harm but instead to assess the the risk for what it truly is.
Calculated risks allow you to live life and experience life to the fullest.
To give more, to get more, to be more. .

If you are looking for inspiration, go to Berlin🇩🇪

My last day in Berlin is over and I can’t say I regret it. To travel to Berlin was one of the best things I could do. I met so many people, had so many different talks - it’s crazy! I always take something new with my mind and with my heart. Thank you Berlin. Every time.♥️

I will always believe in who you are
If you don’t believe in who you are
Come to me and I’ll remind you of you
Who you are is everything we need
You’ve always been everything we need

People believe in you because even when you don’t believe in yourself, you move. With your entire soul, you move along somehow always finding your way to where you belong. Even if where you are isn’t where you want to be, you find peace there. Even when you look back, you still look forward. When you say goodbye, you’re still always there. You don’t give up on people even when over and over again people are giving up on you. People believe in you because you take care of others more than you take care of yourself. The world says take care of yourself first, but you don’t think that way always because that’s just who you are. You are a natural born caretaker and heart-healer. Empathy has been carved into your bones. Pain tried to take you, but you made it escape you. You found compassion in the middle of it because you never want anyone to feel the heartache you have. You’ve been someone’s angel all along. Selfless isn’t a strong enough noun for you. You make people believe in themselves.
Thank you for that. 💛

Our experiences are just that, ours. Someone may remember something differently than you and that it okay, because their experiences are theirs. No matter what, your experience of the past is valid, and real, and should be honored and acknowledged.
💜
Our memories are highly flawed, and are formed in conjunction with our own lived experiences. Now, please know I am not saying that your memory of your trauma(s) is inaccurate, rather, what I am saying is that NONE of us remember things exactly as they are. We believe that our memories are precise; we believe that events and experiences happened one way; we believe that our version is THE version, and for US, it is.
💜
Memories should be thought of as little truths, rather than BIG TRUTHS. True for us does not mean true for someone else. Here is why this is important: If we believe that only one truth exists for the past, and an abuser asserts that their experience of events is the valid one, then we are left feeling invalidated, rejected, or further harmed. When we can hear someone else's experience of the past and KNOW that we had a very different experience, then we can honor our own truth despite someone else's recollection of events. By knowing that two things can be true at the same time (their experience and ours) then we get to honor ourselves, which is a huge part of healing.
💜
The way you remember your childhood shapes how you feel about your caregivers as you age; the way you remember a dissolved relationship shapes how you feel about safety and boundaries in new relationships; the way you remember fights, break-ups, love, care, harm, trauma, all shape how you navigate your current connections- All of this is real and valid despite the accuracy of anyone's memory. Our felt sense of our lives guides us, not the accurate representation of events and certainly not the lens someone else holds on the past.
💜
To those of you wondering if you are valid, if your memories are failing you, if you will ever be able to heal, I see you.

Stop accepting excuses for bad behavior thinking that one day it will change. It has been said that when someone shows you who they are, you should believe them the first time. That is not to say that people cannot grow. But when someone hurts you, when they disrespect you, when they disregard you, time and again, that is not love. You deserve to be heard and seen and cared for—well.

Stop making yourself small to make other people feel more comfortable. The people who are going to judge you are going to judge you no matter what you do. The people who are going to judge you are going to judge you because they’re too afraid to live big themselves. Playing small helps no one, least of all yourself. You are the only you there is, you are the only person who has your gifts; you are here to share them. You are here to live out loud. You are here to live large.

Stop settling for less in hopes that one day it will become more. Our time here is precious and life is often too short. You are worthy and you are worth being shown up for. You are worthy of a mad kind of magic, you are worthy of something as wild as it is pure. You are worthy of the best—you are worthy of everything. 🌾
