Are you playing by other people’s rules? . Are you still doing what you think you should do instead of what you want to do? . Today I found myself thinking about how hard it is to fit everything in on the weekends-time for myself, time for my husband, time for my children, time for my business. My natural instinct was to turn to my schedule. “If I schedule everything out then it’s more likely to happen.” This is true, sure. But do I want my weekends to look like that? Not at all. I want to have relax and have fun. I want weekends to be family time and restorative. Society might be telling me to work harder and do more but I’m saying no 🙅🏼♀️ . Stop letting outside influences decide what your life should look like. It doesn’t have to be hard, you don’t have to do it all, you don’t have to be stressed. What if you didn’t have to get it all done? What if you could make your own schedule? What if everything you wanted was on the other side of living life on your terms? . Don’t play by the rules when you can make the rules.
In 2013, I ran my first marathon. With no clue of what I was getting myself into, I ran 3:01 and immediately afterwards told myself to never run another marathon again. Over 4 years and thousands of miles later, today I ran 2:27:57 at the @chevronhoustonmarathon, 30th overall and a 4 1/2 minute PR. While time is certainly not everything in running, I owe a lot of my progress as a runner to a whole lot of people. To my Mom, @juliarmaxwell and family for reigniting my passion for running, the @btc_elite squad for constantly pushing me outside my comfort zone, to my Dad for joining me in spirit, stride for stride, when shit got real the last 10k, and to my late coach Linda Gill, who passed away from brain cancer but who’s relentless spirit will always live on. This one was for you, Linda. #maketherules ⚡️
Happy 2018. What are your resolutions!??! They say that you shouldn’t have any more than 10 resolutions... these are mine. 1. Only do what makes me happy 2.

Reinforce and solidify What’s Up World (one of my companies) with the best managers and structure... oh, then conquer the f****** 🌎.... one community at a time!! 5. Get REALLY healthy. Eat right and feel right... bikini body ready for my summer photoshoot. 6. REAL & POSITIVE friendships.... and when I or my friends are going through negatives.... be there even more. 7. Visit my middle sister more @tracey_bee ... as she lives far far away... and see my youngest sis Emma-Lee all the time!! 8. Launch my YouTube Channel, work on my book - yes, I’ve started writing one to publish Valentines 2019 & set up a production room for @xosugarspiceox (another one of my companies)... 9.

Today's Tarot Message: The Emperor Structure and order are your best friends today. Be prepared to step into a leadership role, to bring order to a chaotic situation, whether this is an external one with work or family, or within your own inner world. This is a day for following and enforcing the rules, for thinking of the greater good rather than short-term reward. Be a responsible and honorable leader, and success and respect will be your reward.

Make the rules Break the rules Rewrite the rules And ignore the rules . Rules are only as helpful as the reasons they were created. Some rules no longer apply and some need to be redefined. . Make them, break them but remember who wrote them. Trust yourself, you know yourself better than anyone else.....even when it doesn’t feel like it. 💕
