You can have your healthy life style and eat your ice cream too! Foods should not be classified as “good” or “bad”. This way of thinking brings us into negative thinking patterns and a “this for that” mentality. Wellness is about truly balancing. To be balanced one must fill the scales with all “types” of food, activities, mental health, spiritual health, celebration, and even deprivation. Being healthy is about creating a strong foundation and allowing yourself to build it block by block, one at a time. So make sure you are balanced. I sure do! 🥰 #wellnessisnotdeprivation #wellnessjourney #whatlooksrightformemightnotbeforryou #healthisaboutfoundationandcontinuation #strongfoundations #wellness=balance #happyhearts ...

This normally would have stressed me out. But I decided to view it from her eyes and also look at it as the situation it was. If she is with me, the mess is contained to my direct eyesight. We washed dishes together for 45 minutes. Talking about each one and how to clean it and when it was just right. Educating her on home ec at an early age. That is wellness all over!!! Wellness for her curiosity and life, wellness for my momma heart to share a dreadful task and make it fun, and wellness in my heart when she looked up and said “lub you momma! So fun!!!”.
Wellness doesn’t have to be just food, activity, and health related. Wellness is in your heart and soul. Wellness is everywhere around us if we change our mindset to view situations as just that. Opportunities to love, teach,grow, learn, and just be. In that stillness or in the pivotal moment in a situation is where we find ourselves and our wellness. ❤️#wellnessjourney #wellnesslifestyle #liveinthemoment #loveyourlife #succumbtolife #choosediscomfort #andfindwellness

Take time to meditate/pray/be alone/contemplate/and just be. It is important to spend time with yourself. As my children grow we talk a lot about taking time to decompress and have feelings and think. My oldest is really good about letting us know if she needs a few minutes and I did not realize until today. In the hustle and bustle of. Fun activity that my Tenley was taking some “time” to just be and think and feel and explore on her own without the help or addition of others. I am so very glad I caught this beautiful moment of her. #itisoktospendtimealone #meditationspace #maketimeforyourmentalhealth #wholenessnotperfection #goodvibrations #lookingthroughmychildseyes #taketimetochill #areyoucomfortablewithyou ...

Always see the color in a world full of black or white. It is all too easy to fall into the thinking that life and all answers have to be “this way or that.” However, humanity is not just two options. We are an array and this can be applied in a multitude of settings/situations. Bloom in the most precarious situations. Step out against those harsh conditions life may have thrown at you. You have the power to control yourself in every situation even if you can’t control others or your situation. You can always control yourself. #bethechange🌎 #bethechangeyouwanttosee #controlisnoteasytolearn #lifeonedayatatime #bloomeveninthewinter #changeyoursituation #bethenavigatorofyourjourney #chooseyourselfwhentheywont #alwaysbeyou #learntoappreciateyourself #thesituationmightnotbehopeless ...

Self confidence. What is it to you? How do you personally get it? How do you keep it? When do you feel the most confident? When do you feel the least? Does your confidence hinge on other’s to give it to you? Or is it there for you to take it out and wear it and feel it whenever you want? Did anyone ever tell you that you own your confidence and it is no one single person’s right to give it or take it from you? Do you know that part of confidence of also self esteem? Did anyone teach you to spend time on your self esteem and to grow it or did society teach you how to have it taken away if you don’t follow their rules? Are you part of that society or do you choose to not partake? The truth is, I don’t care what others think of me. I don’t rely on them to lift me up. I believe I am worth my self esteem and my confidence. I believe in my heart and soul that it is up to us to build each other up and not tear each other down. So why is this part of wellness and nutrition? Body confidence, follow through, body image, weight, food insecurities, disease, life, ability to change. All these are either positively or negatively affected by self esteem and confidence. To make a change you need to be bold and take the change by the horns. You need to step forward with confidence and esteem that you can do this. #selfcare #selfesteem #selfesteembuilding #buildingselfesteem #buildingselfworth #failureispartofsuccess #successissweeterafterfailure #failureisnotfailingbutlearning #weightlosstips #weightlossjourney #ownyourchange #growintogreatness ...

Trying to keep it together this weekend after a crazy week. I did not feel like I was winning but my girls feel better and are running around like they own the place again. so....I guess, I am winning.😂 I think we just over did it the last few weeks and their bodies, everyone’s were saying “ time to take a break”. So that is what we did. ❤️#mushroomshallotgingersoup #soupforsickies #soupforthesoul #soupseason #indooractivitiesforkids #playdough #beadboxesforchildren #gemsaresuperhardtogetoffhardfloors #whyisthebathroomsofun #thiswinterbetterbeaweaome #orthismommaisintrouble ...

Today was a day. No coffee in the house, hvac and pool guys here super early after very late nights both days this weekend for my kids. We tried to hit up the normal routine and catch up but the universe was telling us to slow down. I was bound and determined to keep our “mud play”, letter Z, and numbers school program on task. I was keeping it together by the tiniest thread when finally, it rained on us, that was the final signal. So we went and calmly shopped for coffee/string cheese/yeast/ and the girls talked me into buying them sprinkle donuts.🤦🏽‍♀️ We returned home and Charlotte requested a leaf pile so this momma acquiesced, most cheerfully. Then she requested chicken and rice and warm tummy goodness. I couldn’t resist so chicken coconut curry it was. Got baby T in bed and took C for some extra mommy lovey time. She asked what my hair would look like if she brushed it (I have never brushed my curly hair in front of her). So she turned me into a frizz ball/cousin IT and then we practiced braiding. I thought back on how today felt like I was barely hanging on. I asked her what her favorite part of the day was and here is what she said: “mommy, all day was my favorite part! We got to draw with my special markers, I can spell Z, we made mud pies and Tenley put her butt cheeks in it😂😂😂🤦🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️, then we played our rock band (xylophone, flood piano, maracas, a bucket for a drum, and mega microphone) and I sang, we got to play in the rain with your umbrella, and we got DONUTS..... here she stopped and looked at me very crazy eyed...... and momma, you made the most special leaf jumping pile and I got to throw leaves everywhere and you blew the blower at me, and my tummy was so snuggly buggly warm because you are the best cooker ever, and I read and combed your hair and snuggled with you!” I listened to her excitement and recap and realized that she, never once, realized that I was hanging on by a thread and felt like it was a crazy day. She just saw the magic. I cried tears of joy. I prayed and thanked god for this moment and reminder. #seeingtheworldthroughachildseyes #happinessishomemade #happinessisachoice #heteachesthroughmybabiesdaily #happychildre ...
