; when was the last time you did something for the first time? . I'm super ecstatic to have my weekends back; however, I am more excited to be another step closer to where I truly want to be. . Nothing worth having comes easy AT ALL, but I'm trying my best!! (some of y'all know the deal 😭) Feeling humbled & blessed 💚 . #cambodiavibes#reflectionsunday
My senior picture from 7 years ago has made me really reflect on my life. Recently, I have felt that my life is a waste. I haven't accomplished anything that I wanted on my time scale. I thought at the age of 18 that I had my whole life figured out. I was going to be a nurse, be married by 22, have my first kid by 24 or 25. I was going to be graduated from college around 23 or 24. But looking back on the past 7 years, none of that has happened. I have made some choices that I regret and others that have changed my life for the better. And you know what? I am happy with that. God has thrown some serious curveballs that has smacked me in the face. Turns out that I have been on Gods time scale this entire time. I wouldn't change my life right now for anything else. When God threw those curveballs, He changed me. He healed me. He forgave me. He has made me truly happy. I'm still not perfect but God doesn't command perfection in life, He only commands progression. I still don't have my life figured out. But today, I was reminded that I have a loving Heavenly Father who is always looking out for me. #marissain2017#lifeisthesmallmoments#reflectionsunday#godisgreat #lds #godlovesyou
Oooo there's something about #reflectionsunday when it's also #packers and #legday day!!! I've contemplated a lot this week, many know I've separated myself from old worldly ties and I am trying to elevate into an even better me. Not many understand me at all in this process but when I sit back and think about it I smile. I have quite a few to be there in the dark and light times of my life who have high expectations for me, that is an incredible blessing. I am literally one of the hardest people to love. I forget a lot , I don't always remember important things my friends told me as I've been stuck in my own world fighting battles on my own for a very long time. But these people keep staying there regardless of how difficult I know I can be. That's the best. Loving my time with the family too. I'm excited to leave for Dallas tomorrow and see what the possibilities hold for the future. Happy Sunday fam, enjoy the most amazing day on purpose! I know I am ❤️🙏🏽 #fitgirl #fitgypsy #motivationalspeaker#lifebydesign #bossbabe
Sometimes when you go back to a book you catch something that you may not have caught the first time around. . . . This was the case with Chapter 4 of Made To Crave. Lysa talks about the accountability we need to be successful on our health journeys. . . . . She goes into how not thinking things over can yield negative consequences to our decisions. . . . Desperation breeds Degradation. The example she used was in Genesis 25:29-34 when Esau sold his birth right to Jacob for a bowl of stew. He gave up so much for moments of satisfaction; giving up who he was in a moment of desperation. . . . I’ve read the story of Esau and Jacob and I’ve never seen it from that perspective. Now thinking about my own health and fitness journey there are many times where I’ve compromised my hard work for a few moments of satisfaction that cost me set backs in the long run. . . . What about you? Are you compromising in areas of your life? Think about what you are compromising and if that moment of satisfaction will cause set backs for you in the future. . . . #islandgirlinmi #phil413 #prayfirst #madetocrave#personaldevelopment#spiritualdevelopment#reflectionsunday#lysaterkeurst #fitmom #mompreneur #betterme #gritandgrace#gritandvirtue#womenintheword#womenoffaith#breakthrough#neverstoplearning#jesustakethewheel#hisgraceissufficient #audiobook
#reflectionsunday 🙏🏽 I've been taken by surprise a lot this week. Previous experience I have never handled surprises too well. I have been crazy for a few weeks shedding the old ways of my worldliness and I realize there's no way to cut out every old habit all at once. For once I know that I don't want to do things the wrong way any more , I want to do them the Godly way. I had to stop forcing things to come together , making them how I think things should be. This week is the week of my peace returning, and my gratitude to the people In my life that add light. I'm happy as hell to be that person so many come to, it means the world to me. It's beautiful here in Wisco, be in Dallas in about a week or so, headed back to the fam again. So enjoy my fav day y'all and l'll end with one of my fav quotes: "The world will break your heart ten ways to Sunday, that’s guaranteed. And I can’t begin to explain that- or the craziness inside myself and everybdy else,but guess what? Sunday is my fav day again". #fitgirl #fitgypsy #bossbabe #motivationalspeaker ❤️
Making excuses will never help you or get you to the point you want to be. Ignore everyone who tries to bring you down and follow your dreams! It doesn't matter what they say when you're accomplishing everything you've ever wanted! So go out there and stop making excuses for yourself!
