#flourishingselfcare Day 22: Today I challenge you to find five unexpected beautiful things on your commute. Maybe one of them will be a plant covered in sparkly ice crystals or some beautiful flowers. It’s beneficial to your overall well-being to appreciate the small things in life, even on a typical work day. Appreciate this day. ❄️ Reminder: for the month of February, I’m offering 15% off my holistic nutritional consultations to help support you in your self-care goals.
Let’s talk about HUMBLENESS. So as some of you may know I am studying to be a pharmacist. I love medicine and being healthy and working with people and have since I can remember. When I was growing up I would mentor my friends and loved encouraging people to eat well, be active, etc. I made information type posters by hand and posted them around the house for my dad to find when I wanted him to quit smoking. I love helping my friends with medication questions when they were ill or needed an OTC. My passion for fitness is no large leap as I feel strongly about preventative medicine and taking care of your body before problems arise. . So tonight I volunteered at a local free clinic for underserved local populations. And it always is an extremely humbling experience. There are people that lay in fear of being attacked or have their belongings stolen while they sleep. Many don’t have access to transportation and the ability to access their providers. Others have been discriminated over and over again from securing a job. I just wanted to share and remind you to be thankful. Thankful to have a HOME. Thankful to be able to LOCK THE DOOR. Thankful to sleep IN MY OWN BED without anyone in the room (beside my boyfriend). Thankful to sleep and FEEL SAFE. Thankful to be able to use my body and exercise it, strengthen it. Thankful to use my mind and learn about the human body and therapies and hopefully give back to the community from what I have learned. . NEVER forget how fortunate you are. ALWAYS reflect and appreciate what you worked for and what you were given. What are you thankful for tonight? 😌🙏🏼💙 _________________________ #thankful#givingthanks#humbleyourself#medicine#volunteering#appreciatetoday#girlswholift#weightliftingchick#buildthebooty#bootyworkout#shoulderboulders#gymshark#veganbodybuilding#fitspo#sweatselfie#healthylifestyle#asianamerican#itsalifestyle#fitlife#fitgirls#strongbody#fitness
Ryder finished his first week in his @biglifejournal. This week was all about “Making a Difference” and we had the best bonding time working thru it together. Ryder is 7 and he LOVE IT! The stories, pictures, and guided questions help him move through it easier than having only blank pages. . Ryder decided that he would like to help sponsor a child through an amazing organization, @therainingseason. They are an orphan care facility in Sierra Leone, founded by an incredible women in our company, @ericastonemusica. . . After showing Ryder pictures of the facility, the children, and explaining their mission -along with the responsibilities of sponsorship- he was even more determined to help. He has agreed to take on more choirs in our home to earn the money we will send to a child in need. He wants to do it in honor of his big brother, Hawke, who was taken from us too soon by a seizure, nearly 5 years ago, at the age of 3. We adopted Hawke at birth and have MAD LOVE for all of the individuals, families, and organizations that play a roll in bettering the lives of children.. . . #adoption#entrepreneurlife#mompreneur#bethelove#hotmessmom#positivevibes#healing#appreciatetoday#biglove#footballmom#growthmindset#perspective#comoassion#empathy#instakids#growth#businesswoman#habitsbuildsuccess#habitsofhappiness#onelife#liveit#loveit
Day 33 made me appreciate many things! One in particular is the ability to follow through when things get hard. Many times during today’s “Booty” workout, I felt like quitting, giving up and taking the gains I have made up until this point. But what is that teaching my kids? Quit when things get challenging? No quitting! Go through it! Appreciate the little things, when things get hard is when grow happens! Push through, your mind is stronger than the desire to quit! Have a great one everyone, make this day count!
