The subject of medication can be scary and often misunderstood.
It's common for loved ones to disapprove of medication use, but I'm here to help you make your own decision.
Remember, there's nothing wrong with taking medication! It's not lazy or shameful, but it doesn't always work for everyone.

I felt like I was drowning today, but I was determined to stay positive. - Every day is different in our house. Work schedule aren’t consistent, toddler and baby moods fluctuate within minutes, and my ability to wake up early and get stuff done before everyone else wakes up has been nearly impossible. 😑 I will not let that stop me though. I will continue to embrace it and I will learn how to tread the water because I’ve got these guys standing behind me every step of the way. They are my WHY. They are my SUPPORT SYSTEM. They are my EVERYTHING. + I will give this life my EVERYTHING to give them EVERYTHING in return. 💕 #deepbreaths #familyovereverything
Because you can never have too many pictures of waves crashing into the shore! .
The sight of crashing waves makes me so happy. There is something deeply relaxing about it. The sounds, foam, and power all captivate me! .
Which do you prefer to see... the crashing, rough waves or a calm, peaceful sea

Today it was just us, nature 🌲 , love 💕, beautiful animals 🐎 , wonderful friends 👭 , smiles 😄 and happy dancing. This is living and just what my heart ❤️ and soul needed today after drama w the ex and my son😢. I needed to focus on those who love and respect me and provide them with a fun, nature filled day and I can’t thank this coach life enough! I met the woman who owns this pony online and she is amazing 🙌! I will make another post with our girl squad today and tell you more about it!
Today, there were so many moments I just had to look at how beautiful the trees 🌳 were. The joy of hanging with amazing animals. How happy my little girls were. A playful dog 🐕 and just try to turn off my mind and be present. It was hard at times but I had such great supportive loving friends with me. Moments like this took all the worries away and I just stopped and became present in awe. .
It helped me let go of others harsh words towards me and others judgements. I am not perfect but I do know I am a good mom and I do not need to prove that to anyone. I know it within me. Being undermined by his dad with things like him replacing a cell phone the day I ground him from it is not discipline. #prayforthem Just like this horse 🐴 here is disciplined and well behaved it was due to learning. Our children need that same thing to be well adjusted in life. Doing for them things they need to be doing to be responsible even amongst a family is healthy. I am giving trust to the universe to handle this for now. .

The beginning of the school year can be a super stressful time for us teachers - there’s a long list of things to do and we’re adjusting to being back to the routine of work!
I have felt much more at ease so far and excited for the year, but I encountered a stressful situation today that I couldn’t quite let go of. 😕
When this happens (and it can happen often), I reach for my oils - Peace & Calming rolled on my wrists and Release on my shoulders. I took a few deep breaths and mentally tried to let it go.
We try teach these strategies to our young students, but do we practice them ourselves
My goal this school year is to check in with myself often emotionally. Just a few moments of self-awareness and self-care can go a long way. 🙏🏼
Decompress, clear your mind, stay present. Sometimes life feels much and the only thing to do is breathe, release and all the above. And that’s totally ok because everything is always changing. The muchness could clear in 5 minutes or 5 days, but it will clear. Especially when you give it space to do so. #life #beinghuman #deepbreaths
I love watching her paint.
Must admit, anxiety levels go through the damn roof watching those watercolours get mixed together 😬🤦🏼♀️😩 #deepbreaths #letthecreativityflow
I’ve been trying so hard to be patient lately. I’ve been struggling to find the right emotions about things that are so trivial but hit me deep in my soul.
I’ve learned to take deep breaths, hold them, and pray for my angry thoughts to dissipate with grace.
Being patient is HARD. Being gracious is HARD. Trying to understand why we don’t all see things the same way is SO 👏🏻 STINKING 👏🏻 HARD 👏🏻
I’m doing my best. I’m allowing myself to only vent to Cameron because he feels the struggle too.
Pray for us to be patient and kind because this next year is going to be tough.

It’s been a special kinda travel day! 🌎 It’s 5:30pm, and I’m still at PIT. My original flights were taking me to East Lansing by 3:30pm. .
When my friend and I got on the road this morning on 376 heading to the airport. As we drove close to the Squirrel Hill tunnel, we came to a complete stop. There was a four car pile up in the tunnel. 🤦🏼♀️
We stressed that we weren’t going to make it to our flights. Five minutes from the airport, my second flight was cancelled and Grace’s was delayed. ✈️ To the ticket counter I go! .
So...change of plans...fly to Grand Rapids instead. Cool, not too far of a drive, I can do it. A little later, but no problem. Until...
The flight to Chicago gets delayed to the point I can’t make the Grand Rapids flight. Alright, plan #3...
Next plan was to fly to DC, then catch a connecting flight to Grand Rapids. Later still, but it will get me there, and right now, that’s what’s important. Until...
That flight get delayed, and delayed, and delayed...the passengers are dwindling, the rumors of the pilot timing out is spreading, and another delay gets announced. That one puts me over the connection time again! 🙄
I rush up to the gate attendants (who I’ve already had numerous conversations with about my bag- please say a prayer to the travel gods that it makes it🙏- the gate attendant says, “I’m sorry I forgot your name,” yes, we’re almost in a first name basis😂. She works some magic and gets me on a flight to Laguardia that will take me to Detroit! Then, I’ll grab my bag 🧳 (remember those prayers), and then drive two hours to my hotel. 🚙
These East Coast thunderstorms are no joke! ⛈ What was supposed to be about a six hour travel day has turned into a gigantic adventure with four different itineraries and lots of lovely conversations 😊with fellow travelers. I’m still not there yet, but at least I made it on a plane! (We’re currently on the runway waiting to be cleared for takeoff) 🤞
Happy travels, friends! ❤️😘
Calm downs for grown-up types, too. #wayatodestress

Winding down after trying to organize my classroom. Sitting by a pool with some stress away on my wrist. This is a pleasant combination of Lime essential oil and vanilla extract. It also includes Copaiba, Lavender and Cedarwood. Who else loves this in the diffuser! AHH!
How often are you still
I mean really still - during a time in your life where EVERYTHING is moving in so many different directions & you don’t know which way to go.
I struggle with this. Big time.
The seasons we can face in life can be so daunting/so exciting & filled with SO many unknowns.
& instead of knowing that God is with us and for us, we let the weight of everything else come between that. Instead of resting in stillness, we wrestle with: Fear, anxiety, stress, failure, etc.
Whatever you are facing today or whatever seasons your in. Family changes, health issues, marriage struggles, mental health, doubts.
Be still & know, that God is with you.

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the benefits of semen retention lately. In my opinion, semen retention is where most of the benefits of NoFap come from. Comment below what day you’re on👇🏼
There’s a fine line between anxiety and excitement. Isn’t that interesting A lot of times when I have a lot of stuff going on, and therefore feeling a lot of anticipation, it feels like anxiety. That’s when I make a special effort to calm my nerves. So I can stay in the healthier vibes of excitement, instead of slipping into the less vibrant feelings of anxiety. This is when a meditation practice is especially helpful. Having that practice means you train yourself to access tranquility and inner peace when things are going relatively easily, so that you have easier access to those peaceful feelings when things are more intense. Thanks @marieforleo for this relatable message. Sending love to everyone who is about to make a big leap in life! It’s not always easy, but it’s worth it. #bigchanges #oldsoulceo #deepbreaths
Sometimes slowing down,
helps us move faster-
Chasing waterfalls and watching the world go by with deep breaths.
This is as much of a reminder to myself as it is to anyone who can benefit from it.
Last week, emotions were bubbling to the surface as I realized, once again, that something wasn’t in alignment with my joy, happiness and wellbeing. I tried to suppress these feelings and just get through one more week. Alas, my efforts were in vain. A cascade of emotions came gushing out and I could no longer hold in what had been troubling me. I reached out to my good friend and life coach @theyogihypnotist who reminded me to take deep breaths. Ahhhh, what a relief a couple of deep breaths can bring. Then she asked me to list 5 things I am grateful for. Shifting my attention was also a big game changer. Then, she helped me put things in perspective. Looking at the bigger picture gave me peace, knowing that I was working on shifting out of this situation and to be patient. Bottom line is no body is immune to having bad days or getting out alignment. And when you have some tools in your self-help arsenal it makes it a lot easier to get re-centered. Also, surrounding yourself with loving and supportive people is a godsend. Thank you so much @theyogihypnotist for holding space for me and help me see the light once again. #deepbreaths #womenempoweringwomen #lifecoach #wellnesscoach #synergy

How do you water your flowers Perfect time to think about & practice your #posture!
🌸 Shift the weight into your heels so you’re not in your toes (& subsequently your knees)
🌼 #growaninch! No really, lift up as tall as you can from your #hips!
🌺 Keep your knees soft, don’t lock them out or you’ll shift back into your toes
🌷 Do you feel your abdominals turn on 🙋🏼♀️ Take several #deepbreaths, which also has a #calming effect!
Now, #enjoythebeauty & your new posture 🙌🏻🤛🏻

it is the heart + soul of who we are.
when we’re born into this world, the first thing we do is inhale.
this signifies the beginning of it all.
and yet even though the breath is our source of life, we don’t even think twice about it.
we don’t think about how we’re breathing + how that affects how we’re living.
have you ever noticed that when we’re in a rush, the breath quickens, and when we panic the breath shortens
whatever we do or feel, our breath responds to it.
over time, without the fullness of breath, the body becomes tired + stripped of life’s energy.
returning the breath to its natural flow gives our bodies proper oxygen flow to regenerate our cells + refuel our muscles.
soon i’ll be sharing tips + techniques that will teach you how to breathe mindfully, naturally and deeply, so that you can become aware of your breathing + develop the ability to release unfavourable breathing patterns.
more to come 🙏🏼

First day back at school for Daniel (5th grade) and Rosalie (1st). We all spaciously walked to school (including Honey) and made it with plenty of time to see them both to their new classrooms.
Lots of mixed feelings about all of this. 😊🙃😭It’s been a bit of an internal struggle whether to send them back to school or to give it a go with homeschool. We agreed to give it 6 weeks and then check in again to see how everyone’s feeling. ....
May you be present to whatever comes up for you and your kiddos on these first few days back at school. It can be a rocky transition, so make sure to be gentle with yourself...and each other. .

So blue, so green, so much soccer—
We’ve spent a lot of our hours at soccer these past few years. It’s pretty fun, pretty predictable. Last night though I totally forgot to bring my son to practice. I didn’t really have an excuse. It wasn’t a particularly busy day, I wasn’t “totally overwhelmed” or anything. I just plain forgot. He did too. He was watching Paul Blart Mall Cop 2. So it’s not like his life was being enriched by something worthy.
It was supposed to be his first night with a new team, a new club, the beginning of a new season after the tryouts. And I just forgot! 🤦🏼♀️
I felt SO BAD. And incapable... and forgetful... and like something was wrong with my brain, and my organization skills, and now my his soccer experience with this team was going to be tainted, and the coaches were going to think we’re the losers and.... blah... blah... blah.
But then I decided to just STOP with all that.
Take a deep breath. Or a few. Own it. Apologize. Yes, I forgot. All (or most 😅) of the other 100,000 other times, I did NOT forget, so actually the percentages are in my favor. Put it in perspective. Learn from this time. Even now it sounds stupid, and so minor. But last night it seemed like a big deal.
We get to CHOOSE the lines we’re telling ourselves. In big stuff and in little stuff. It takes practice, or at least it does for me. But I’m going to keep trying.
Funny ending to the story: my husband double checked the schedule and his first practice is actually NEXT Monday night. So um yeah, he didn’t miss anything after all. 😅🤷🏼♀️
Tyler took me on an ice cream date last night in my favorite town.
If you haven’t been to @mnicecream yah NEED to go!
THE ENVIOUS, if they were in the fantasy world. .
Commonly confused with The Jealous. They want your advantages. Possession, attributes, qualifications, quality or achievements. They have a potential to become malicious by making person with said attribute suffer or they can also turn towards self-motivation by using their envy to better themselves.

We have all seen it or will eventually. This is how I visualise the behaviour when it appears.
Recognition upon appearance is a tool that can be developed.
