Thanksgiving is over & done with. It's been a long two weeks. I've been running around like crazy and haven't worked out for two weeks. I miss the gym so much. I miss seeing results. I didn't overeat & I probably could have chose better decisions BUT that's the past and I'm not going to let it beat me up. Starting the #100daysactivechallenge fresh Monday with my family and i'm so excited to see what we accomplish plus it's money involved!!!! Have a great rest of the holidays and remember don't give up on yourself ✨ #thanksgiving#weightlossjourney#dontgiveup#forward
When you’ve committed just about every fiber of your being to service, social justice and all things that make life for women and people of color fair and equitable, that investment of service equates to a journey worthy of honor and glorification of the courage and fortitude of a woman of said character. The Rolling Hills/Palos Verdes Alumnae Chapter celebrates the 101st birthday of our 14th National President and Civil Rights Pioneer, Soror Frankie Muse Freeman. Soror Freeman, on this weekend of Thanksgiving, we thank you for the leading the way for all of us. ❤️🐘💫 #frankiemusefreeman#frankiefreeman#dst#dst1913#naacp#forward
There once a simpler time in our lives. A time not so long ago where we roamed free in our diapers with no care in the world. We followed our hearts and did what we felt was right despite what others told us. We trusted our feelings more than the logic even though it led us to hot stoves, burnt hands, and scraped knees. In those days were explorers, scientists, and philosophers of reality. Always pushing further no matter how many times we fell so we could learn to take steps and run discover our passions, our purpose, and our place in life. We were fearless but something along the way made us feel different. We began to question ourselves instead of the world around us. We began to listen to others instead of our hearts and followed paths that weren’t our own feeling lost, confused and unsure of why we took those first step, to begin with. “Why am I here???!!!” We call out at night. “What is my purpose?” We say in tears. We begin to feel scared not being able to recognize the very same face we grow up with making us question who we are and what we had become. So now we are left with a choice; Do we stay on the same path if it continues to make us feel this way? Or do we reconnect with the child inside of us once more? Remember in life, no matter where we are or what we have done we are always one choice away from a new life. We have no obligations or commitments to the old one, and though it may have served us up to this point we don't owe it anything. Nothing in this life owns you especially those things that take away from who you are and your happiness. You deserve to feel good, we all do, so make that choice, become that child once and learn to walk again because this not the end of you, oh no, you have only just begun.
