  • Yesterday was my first official day of work at my new dental office! I prayed for some patients to cancel or no-show, but all 10 patients showed up instead. Lmao, I’m ready for the weekend. 🤦🏻‍♀️

  • When we got orders to move to Japan I was pretty much terrified. It was the last choice on our list and it didn’t seem to me to be a possibility of places we’d ever live. Now, it’s been nearly two years since we left and I crave the simple life we lived there. Annnd I’d give just about anything for a steaming hot bowl of ramen right about now🍜 #sweetinsinjapan

  • ✨just when i thought my dreams were dead.

i remember the first time i spoke to a room full of young girls [circa 2010 - Ardmore, OK] - ‘if only one person could resonate with what this young communicator has to say, i would be overjoyed’ i thought to myself as my heart pounded rapidly, in attempt to jump out of my chest.

that day, something shifted in me. i didn’t know i would walk away with a new desire to speak and live my life making every effort to see young women see Him rightly, and then themselves the same.

since this moment of saying yes, the enemy has tried everything within his minute power to knock me out. he thought he had won, the few times i succumbed to my struggle with unbelief & choices thereafter BUT he hasn’t won. i can see how the years leading up to that moment, and the ones to follow, how each of them speak to a really good God, how much He loves me and how much He desires to receive the Glory due Him in return.

this is why i cannot stay silent. yes, my story is cray. i’ve fallen so hard and so far, yet not hard and far enough that His grace couldn’t reach me.

the enemy thought he had convinced me no young woman would ever want to hear my story nor was i ever going to be able to share my story, because my sin was too great and shame was my lot. wrong again.

i share not because of me, but because of Him. He is in the very fabric of the story of who i was yesterday, who i am today and who i will be tomorrow. i’m on a mission - my dream has a heartbeat again.

GET READY Y’ALL ✨

  • I tend to always have a positive outlook 🌞 BUT I have to say, sometimes life can be overwhelming, there can be so much going on, and if you don't invest in YOU, it's going to cost you over time.
-
Wait, what? You don't make time for self-care? You'd rather just keep running on autopilot letting the burnout and frustration build up and not pay any attention to yourself? Think you don't have time for it?
-
If that's your attitude, you've got some surprises coming your way, and they're not pretty!
-
Acknowledging and dealing with the fact you don't make enough time for yourself NOW rather than later can not only fast track your growth, but it can make you happier, more peaceful and more fun to be around. Trust me, I've really had to develop my relationship with self-care to get to where I am. In fact, in today's video, I share 8 specific, sneaky little habits that I try and incorporate into my life every single day because...#selfcareisntselfish.

  • You can’t read about doing squats and get that Instagram 🍑. You have to actually do them.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You can download every checklist and workbook, listen to every podcast, and scour every pinterest board…
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But it won’t get you results.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eventually, you have to decide what you want, and go after it like the bad b*tch you are.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You have to take action.
You have to do the work.
You have to show TF up.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And fight like a girl 👊

  • Can I just get some encouragement for posting a mirror selfie here? Y’all the art of a mirror selfie is beyond me but I gave it a shot because this outfit is what I’m loving most today ☆ ☆ ☆
•
I’ve been loving pink sweaters lately & got this one from Aerie - perfect for my nieces Barbie birthday party next weekend and Valentine’s day 🎀💕
•
But most importantly, THESE JEANS! Y’all I have never owned a pair of jeans that I love this much. I got these Free People jeans for less than $40 (originally $78!!) I love them so much I bought the black pair & have them waiting for me to pick up at Macy’s 😍😍😍

Anyways, happy Wednesday loves!

  • Do you need some words of affirmation today?  I turned the chalkboard in my office into a repository for good vibes.  Give what you can and take what you need.
