“When the hell did it become so damn easy to let me go?
That’s the plaguing thought I’ve had over the last few weeks. Have you ever been there? It’s not the same as not feeling enough and it’s not asking what is wrong with me because I believe I’m whole on my own and I know who I am and more importantly, I love who I am. I have flaws and I have issues I’m working on but at my core, I’m not insecure with who I am. I don’t question my worth. Despite the number times I have been stood up in the past or the guys who have cheated on me or verbally abused me, I don’t question my worth. So let’s be clear that this isn’t me tearing myself down or throwing myself a pity party. Fuck that.
When did it become so damn fucking easy to let go of me?
It’s more of a burden thing. When someone breaks up with you as if you’re this huge weight to carry. Yet, you were hardly even ever together so how could you have been a burden? And when you were together, it was easy—or so you thought.
I’ve never been one for surprises. They freak me out. I’m always scared my reaction is going to hurt someone—or rather, my reaction isn’t going to meet someone’s expectation. This last breakup, though, that was a freaking surprise. Every relationship I’ve had, there was no abrupt end. I could easily trace the dots and when it ended, it didn’t come so completely unaware. How it ended may have been a different story, but I was always aware of the distance created or the games the guy would begin to play, the lies told, doubts communicated, etc. Even the times when I got stood up, there was nothing there to ever lose. It was just a disrespect of my time and the treatment of being a game to someone.
This time, though, I thought we were climbing the mountain together. And then one day I looked beside me and found I was completely alone on the path.
I have always excelled at being alone without ever feeling lonely. It’s amazing the shift that happens after a breakup I didn’t see coming—suddenly, I feel very much alone and isolated....”

🤔 What influence are you leaving when you’re not in the room? It’s not about striving to be someone you aren’t, it’s all about being only who God created you to be in all of that fullness for His glory. That brings influence that has the power to change the people + atmosphere around you ❤️ I have been so challenged lately, the best thing that I can do is to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness - seek my Papa with all that I am and everything else will rise up to His righteousness. All it takes is deciding that I would rather be so aligned with Him over everything else. That kind of living carries influence and favor, we could never obtain on our own and that the world around us desperately needs. #lifetothemacs#influence#favor#kingdomliving#reallife#realtalk#motherhood#momlife#marriedlife#intentionalliving#onpurpose#presence#jesusisking

I have always wanted to be a mom. The desire has been a part of me for as long as I could remember. After my divorce I was depressed and felt like I would never have children. I was caught in a downward spiral of emotions. I felt guilt, pain, regret, lost, sadness, unworthy...you name it, I felt it.
As I watched all of my friends start to grow their own families It was painful. I would get jealous. I would find myself saying things like “why not me?” “It’s just not fair.” “If I just stayed married, I could have had that.” This went on for years until one day I decided that I was ready to start making changes in my life and stop living in the never ending pity party.
I chose to say yes. It still was not easy. I said yes and then for the next two years I struggled but in different ways. The pain of dealing with my past, mending my broken heart, trying to figure out how to love myself and what that even meant.
Fast forward to the present time, I finally have true love for myself. I am proud of who I am today. I have forgiven myself. Perhaps the greatest gift of all, is the gratitude I feel for my life. I believe with all of my being that I WILL be a mother one day.
For now, I will learn everything I can about motherhood while I help raise my nephew. .
None of this has been easy but we were never promised that it would be. In fact, I don’t think we’d appreciate it if it was easy. Life is messy and complicated, full of relationships that didn’t go the way we thought they were going to go, opportunities that didn’t pan out the way we thought they would and plenty of broken promises, enough to make anyone lose hope. I don’t think we were really promised any of this and I think a lot of my disappointment and broken expectations hit me so hard because I was placing my hope in the wrong things.....we don’t have to do this, we have a true and lasting hope....something that’s even better than that dream job or relationship you’ve always wanted.....I’m learning that Jesus is really better, better than all of those things and I have to remind myself that He is because I don’t always feel it but I know it’s true. #jonathanjackson#jonathanjacksonmusic#reallife#realtalk

@emmazeck_ nailing it. Anger, sadness, depression, anxiety, these are ALL valid. And they are ALL a part of what makes us humxn. Honour yourself, every part of yourself because that's #radicalselflove. And that is how we destigmatise mental illness.
Just because you cannot handle someone else when they're deep in their feels, doesn't mean they're bringing the energy down. Yes there are energy vampires, no that doesn't mean everyone who is having a bad day is an energy vamp. It just means they may need a safe space to be held. So don't be a dxck. Support your friends, family and those around you when they're feeling down. Just like you need to be supported when you're down too. Because all emotions are valid.

Why do people think that eating healthy and working out will ADD stress to their lives?! I hear it all the time: “Omg, I just don’t have time for that right now!!” 🏃♀️
Friend, that’s the whole point. We’re ALL busy. ⏱ It’s time to make that change you’re craving (and if that resonates with you, then you’re seeing this for a REASON).
Working out for 30 minutes once a day? It’s what keeps me SANE when things are crazy.
Eating foods that make me feel good? 🥗🌯🍳 Yeah, that’s how I don’t turn into an exhausted, dysfunctional mess.
I have opened up 3 more spots in our virtual fit club... it’s really just a support and accountability space for those who ARE craving that change, who are willing to spend 30 minutes working out, who want to learn how to fuel their bodies (because diets are THE WORST), and who are ready to stop playing small.
Drop your fav food emoji below or shoot me a message to get all the details and snag one of those 3 spots 🍕
My little muse. She is getting more and more into modeling for me lately and I am taking full advantage of this while it lasts!
We are thinking of going back to the trampoline park tomorrow afternoon, since we’ve got a couple leftover vouchers. You guys, I am not even going to lie to you. It’s been a LONG time since I’ve felt that much like a kid. We went for Aurie’s birthday a few weeks back and I think I had more fun than the kids 🤪🙃. It was seriously a BLAST!
Like...when have I last felt that free?! Probably when I was a kid/teenager. I would go every weekend if I had the chance!!! I highly recommend it to both kids and adults 👏🏻 Hey, we deserve to feel like kids every now again don’t we?!? What do you think? 👇🏻 Would you jump again?!
After a traumatic event in my family last night my world was flipped, and the strong foundation of healthy habits I have worked so hard to establish and reinforce these last 2 years was blown out from under me, and I came crashing down hard into my old dark habits of emotional eating.
In a storm of traumatic emotions the DTOX was forgotten, tracking was forgotten, portion control, macros, whole foods, healthy fuel, all of that was forgotten. I ate until my stomach hurt, to numb the pain, to lose myself, to escape raw feelings…or maybe to feel something else, I don’t know why but I haven’t been able to stop.
-I’m sharing this because I want to be transparent, and I want you to know that despite my best efforts I’m still human. Sometimes even when you have a plan in place, and healthy habits formed, there are still curveballs that throw you off so hard they knock you right off your feet and the world keeps spinning. I know I’ll get back up, and find my footing again. Even just writing these words and owning my struggle is helping me to give it less power and to feel strength and assurance that tomorrow is a new day, and I will start it with the choices I know make me feel good, not just for a brief moment but for the whole day. If you’ve ever been knocked off your feet like that, hold on, have faith, and know that “the darkest hour of the night comes just before the dawn.”

The only thing money can’t buy is time. But you can use it to buy more life. What do I mean? How?
By investing in yourself. Investing in your health. 💰
Whether you decide to do it today or do it tomorrow the problem will still remain until you TAKE ACTION.
Getting to your goal will take the same amount of resources but the currency you waste between now and taking the first step is TIME. And time is something you can’t get back! ⏳
I’m saying this because after a few weeks of investing in themselves i.e. starting with us, our clients always say “I wish I started sooner.” Coming to the realization none of it was impossible. It makes me sad how often I have this conversation.
Don’t be that person who waits a few weeks, months or even years to pursue MORE LIFE. 🌱
Change is never easy but what’s harder is staying where you are. Feeling you can be more, do more and deserve more...but choosing to ignoring it anyway. #realtalk

,, Kommen wir Mal zu dem thema selbstbewusstsein i mean ich hatte und habe kein selbstbewusstsein ich kann mich einfach nicht akzeptieren so wie ich bin und ich kann nicht drauf scheißen auf andere leute, also deren Meinung ich akzeptiere die Halbwegs denn ich wurde gemobbt und durch das mobben von anderen "nicht" guten Leuten habe ich aufgehört mich selbst zu lieben bzw. mich so zu akzeptieren so wie ich bin. Ich bin dadurch so schüchtern geworden wie ich vor 6-7 Jahren garnicht war. Die ganzen mobbings die, die zerstören richtig einen. Was ich aber draus gelernt habe: - lass dich nicht runterkriegen
Wenn es nach ner Zeit nicht besser wird und schlimmer wird sprech mit jemandem am besten mit den Eltern, ich habe es nicht gemacht und das war ein riesen Fehler. Ignoriert halbwegs die Mobber. Lasst es nicht auf euch sitzen sondern klärt es bevor es nicht noch schlimmer wird. Meistens sind die Personen die viel schlechtes reden einfach nur eifersüchtig auf eine Person deswegen lästern die und sagen dumme Sprüche"

#LML (lasst Ma labern -#letstalk)
Früher fand ich das richtig scheisse ,noch vor nem Jahr hab ich euch mit Tränen lachend erzählt das es nicht verstehe wenn Frauen sagen sie können nicht ohne Sex leben.
Aber jetzt versteh ich sie ....ein bisschen weil ich kann trotzdem ganz normal ohne Sex leben ohne das zu vermissen .
Aber wenn man mit der richtigen Person ist ,leider ist das ja einfach nur Hammer das ist ja was ganz anderes als so ein 2 min fick wisst ihr.😁.
Also jetzt mal mit 26 sag ich - die ,die immer anti Männer war ,immer single war und auch für immer single bleiben wollte hahaha .
Das Sex einfach nur geil ist!
(Ja sagt sie so ),Boha die hat Sex gesagt.
Wir lieben es doch alle !
Wenn man den richtig Mann hat macht des so Spaß.
Ich wusste so vieles nicht ,wo ich jetzt so denke oha diggaaa - sweet baby Jesus🤭😁.
Als nächstes wollt ihr bestimmt wissen wie das ganze so funktioniert -weil der quicky am Nachmittag ist mein liebster 🤭😁yup schon wieder hat sie sowas gesagt .
weil ich hab ja Kinder ,die schon groß sind ,wie kann ich es mich wagen so was zu sagen.
Uhh hat sich gereimt 😂,ja auf jeden erzähl ich euch next time wie so etwas möglich ist ,wenn ihr wollt .
What’s our global happenings?
Our Texas Headquarters had our First Let’s Talk/ Pillow Talk Pajama Party.
It was AWESOME!! We was soooo comfortable, and cozy. We shared snacks, sipped on hot tea, and the conversation, knowledge and wisdom we received from our Founder and each other was Mmmm good... That’s all I can say “We are OUR sisters keeper”
And A special thank you to our Sharon Ann for the great idea for our stage. It definitely felt like a sleep over at my sisters house.🤩 OUR Founder is AMAZING!!! 🖤REAL TALK.. We Thank God for YOU!!!! #Part2comimgsoon

It really hits me when i see you defending yourself from others. Gusto kasi kitang tulungan lagi. Pero minsan naisip ko paano pag wala na ako. Kakayanin mo bang mag isa?
I know it can be incredibly difficult sometimes to keep moving in the right direction. It can feel like moving through quicksand. The more you move, the more it seems like you're sinking. .
But life is much more beautiful than that. You're not sinking. In fact, you're learning and growing and developing abilities. You're moving to a place where your experiences can guide you more solidly into the future. You are strengthening and becoming a better & more intelligent version of you. .
These difficulties will soon be nothing more than memories. They will be stories you share to help others overcome their own brand of demons. .
Keep your eyes open and your head up.
You, my beautiful friend, are unveiling an uncommon gift that the world is waiting for.
In that, we should be grateful for our struggles. They allow us to be the much needed light in the lives of those we love. .
