My Goal is to GAIN

My Goal is to GAIN

Every time I weigh in at the gym and the number goes down, I get pissed. No one around me, except my trainer gets it. They all look at me like I’m crazy… Because apparently since I’m a woman, that must mean I only have goals to lose weight and be skinnier.

Nope. Couldn’t be more wrong.

We have worked VERY hard over the past year or so to get a plan in place that keeps me gaining. Because I was too skinny (not a luxury at all, so don’t even say it) I was sick. I wasn’t comfortable in my skin. I was weak. I was unhealthy. It wasn’t a good thing.

Connection Doesn’t Know Time

Connection Doesn’t Know Time

Connection doesn’t know time.

Experience doesn’t recognize time. Your soul doesn’t care about time. It connects when it’s meant to connect. It loves when it’s meant to love. It draws you to an experience because it needs it.

Your soul knows what you need better than you ever will. Trust in that.

Don’t let time or lack thereof allow you to belittle a feeling, a connection, or an experience. Don’t underestimate the impact that one single moment can have on you. Continue reading “Connection Doesn’t Know Time”

Is Keeping Your Mouth Shut Inauthentic?

Is Keeping Your Mouth Shut Inauthentic?

Real talk, lately I’ve been super frustrated in a couple of areas of life. I’ve been put in a few situations where I was told, or told myself, that I needed to just back off and not say anything.

I was left to stand here feeling like I was choking, feet stuck in the concrete. Like legit, uncomfortable as fuck from not saying what was on my mind or for not opening up the conversation… No matter how tough that conversation may or may not have been if I had.

Magic

Magic

Sometimes I have uncontrollable tears rolling down my face when I write my reality (a journaling process you’ve probably heard me talk about before).

I feel it so deep in my soul that I burst into tears. Continue reading “Magic”

YOU’RE JUST TOO MUCH

If I had a dollar for every time I heard that…. I’d own an island.

“You’re just too much.”
“Do you even know what you want?”
“How can you expect that?”

“Why do you need more than what you have right now?”

I was told these things most of my life. I was made to feel like I was out of line for wanting the things that I wanted. I was made to feel like I was “too much” when I would fully express myself as who I am at my core. So it’s no wonder that I spent most of my life trying to tone it down.

A Real Date

A Real Date

I was 24 before I was ever taken on a real date.

Like the guy had it planned, picked me up at my house and took me out sort of date.

Yep, 24.

I had my first “official” boyfriend when I was 16, so that’s almost 10 years before meeting someone who was actually a gentleman and planned a date. Continue reading “A Real Date”

Live for the Weekend?

Live for the Weekend?

I was standing at the fair last night and couldn’t help but overhear a conversation that two women were having about how bad it sucked that they had to go to work the next day. Yes, I also was tired and the thought of waking up at 6 am the next morning didn’t sound too exciting to me either. But they went on to say “ya, but tomorrow is Friday and then we have the whole weekend to do whatever we want. I WORK FOR THE WEEKEND. I LIVE FOR THE WEEKEND”.
