When I read this, I think of how I continue to grow every single day and push past everything that is trying to tell me I have no reason to. I have always had a soft heart, but my experiences have softened it even more. Someone said to me once that the fact that I decided, yes I DECIDED, to manage without drugs or alcohol was pretty astonishing. I flat at threw all of my anxiety meds, anti-depressants in the trash and realized alcohol did little but make me feel like crap the next day. I got through my days in the extreme amount of pain I was in because I held a vision and trusted in the knowing that I was headed somewhere different and that carried me through. So when I start to be hard on myself, I do indeed marvel at just where exactly I am at today. 🙏
I think it is so important to share our journeys, because it is through others sharing theirs that I realized what was possible for me. My heart expands a million times when I see a Phoenix rising through the ashes because I know what it takes. And I am inspired to rise more and more each and everyday. I will never stop growing and rising, as there is always more to learn, improve upon, and up-level. 🙌
Give yourself the love you are so worthy of. ❤️ Acknowledge the strength within you!!! I am continually humbled by the capacity, the strength, the courage, and the drive of those I am surrounded by!!! 😍 “You choose to be a warrior when you refuse to be seated. “👊
Head down. It’s something that is a strength and a weakness. When I zone in on a goal, I jump with my head down and build, create, and problem solve along the way giving it my all. Engrained in me from a young age was work. It’s how I am hardwired, and that ability is the only way you will get where you want to go was my belief for a long time. Which I don’t think anymore!
Now let’s talk about the weakness with that trait. With your head down you can miss the "good" right in front of you. With your head down, you can miss passing along a smile or kind words to someone that could make their day, you miss the fact that your son needs you, you miss the fact that rest and recovery is not just a good idea but essential for being the best version of you!
I checked off social media didn't work, spent the day helping my son, ate a hamburger #truestory with an actual bun 🍔😏, and ended my day with a massage. When I did, I was greeted with protests ❤️😂 along with wondering why. Know I am imperfect and still learning and figuring out this thing called life, and there are areas of my life I am working on and figuring out too. I can’t authentically do what I do without practicing boundaries, rest and recovery myself. I plan to make checking "out/off" a thing I do when I feel I need it, without apology.
Yes, my head will also still be down at times, but with awareness to keep my eyes up. To honor what I need/feel and I do hope by you seeing me do that....when you need it...you will as well!

The purpose of the retreat is always for you to release what you do not need and receive all that you need. Nature is so restorative and a mind at peace is appreciative and receptive to that restoration.
“Never do for a child what she can do for herself” - Maria Montessori
Pondering this mindset today as it applies not only to my kids (because 😳🤯) but to everyone I encounter in my daily business. I want to raise up my kids to have a #successmindset and not look to anyone else to blame or do it for them. I want them to achieve things for themselves early on without feeling like someone is telling them they are doing it wrong. This is actually huge. Imagine it. We are all independent business owners. Meaning you get to do it your own way on your own terms. You don’t have to do it my way or anyone else’s way. If you are blaming someone else for not doing enough for you to be successful...consider this...what can you do for yourself #growthmindset #momtrepreneur #achievers #personalgrowth #montessori #montessoriathome #raisingkidsright #qbq #novictimshere
“Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid of standing still” Chinese proverb 🌴✨🌷💛
Thank fuck it's Sunday - no seriously.⠀
It has been one hell of a rollercoaster of a week. I feel like I got an a ride at Alton Towers on Monday morning and didn't get off till last night.⠀
My bipolar has kicked my arse ALL week. I've had a troll. I spent the most amazing day with @theopaphitis being inspired. I watched the most incredible training with @celinnedacosta thanks to @lisajohnsoncoaching . I lost a big order. I secured an amazing PR opportunity. I had a fabulous branding shoot. But out of everything that happened this week ONE single thing hit home more than anything else. And that was an email I received on Friday night to tell me my daughters teacher had passed away. What made the news even more tragic was that he passed just 3 hours after his wife gave birth to their baby girl. ⠀
There just aren't any words. My 'issues' of this week literally pale into insignificance. That one email changed everything. It got me thinking about my own immortality.⠀
One day I will leave this mortal coil and what will I leave behind. I want to know that I have made memories with my family. I want to leave knowing that I loved every day the very best I could. And as cliche as it sounds when I go - I want people to say at my funeral - She lived her best life! ⠀
I am so blessed to be surrounded by people I love and to get up every morning and love my work. I have the ability to change the things I don't like. To take action and make sure that I am living my best life.⠀
Life is short. Make memories. Grab every single opportunity that comes your way. In my experience it is better to regret doing something than to regret never taking that leap⠀

“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” – Jim Rohn #personalaccountability
Soms moet je naar buiten gaan om weer naar binnen te komen. Vandaag had ik op 15 minuten al mijn workshop inspiratie in mijn kleine boekje geschreven aan een van deze bomen op de foto! Volgende week komen ze online! Www.devijfklaver.be
Haz lo que te hace feliz, perdónate a ti mismo, sana tus heridas, suelta y libera todo aquello que te abruma y busca ese amor propio, porque si no hay amor propio, nunca podrás encontrar tu felicidad y ver más allá de lo que la vida te presenta.
Do whatever makes you happy, forgive yourself, heal your wounds, let go of everything that overwhelms you and start working in loving yourself, because if you don’t do this, you will neves be able to find happiness.

How do you sit with confrontation One of the best ways to see how I *truly* feel is Body Language.
I had a partner who was very fearful of confrontation. I knew because of his words *and* actions.
First, he'd cross his arms - to create protection and comfort. This is when the shift would begin - he was no longer listening to me, he was listening to how what I said could be manipulated to fit the Low Self Worth Story he held - I'm Not Enough.
Secondly, he'd get up and move away from me. He'd move his arms in a pushing motion when he spoke so as to push me and the topic away from him.
**This is generally when the topic would shift from me trying to be vulnerable and gain understanding into accusations and bringing up the past(and away from this moment)**
Not just him accusing me but also accusing himself. To promote his Low-Not-Enough-Story. He doesn't deserve. These things don't work out for him. If there is discourse, it is his fault. This is where we have to remain Sovereign. Do not play in to the storyline they believe they are destined for. Allow them to be.
Last was watching his eyes search the room for his shoes, keys, sweater, phone...Ready to leave. In the past, confrontation turned from 'bringing issues to light' into screaming, crying, physical altercations, anger, confusion, hurt - He is now in Fear Mode and needs to escape - Fully Disengaged.
Once he left, I validated my own Low Self Worth Story - They Always Leave.
How do we repair this Love. Remain Open. Listen Quietly even when you are scared. Know the Low Vibrational Story your mind tells you! Know it by heart so when it comes up in Loving Confrontation, you can tell it to sit quietly and let your partner finish!! Know it like the back of your hand so that when Loving Confrontation *isn't* met with Loving Acceptance, you can tell it to stay put and show Sovereignty.
This is why we have the experiences...to Reflect. Where can we Grow🌱 But we have to let the experience go, we can't cling if we want to Blossom or Change.🌸 We can be just as Codependently entangled with the Story we tell ourselves as we are with a loved one. Allow the Experience leave with the Moment.🌊
This is everything! Who has been here I feel you.. I have too! 🙋🏻♀️
How many times have you heard someone say they feel burned out, or just feel they are going through the motions of their day .
You get so caught up in the day to day going to the same salon, with the same people, and doing somewhat of the same thing everyday! It’s very easy to forget your why! We talk about this very thing in my workshops. What is your purpose and your why! But on a much deeper level! .
If you are feeling burned out and tired, take some time to hit the reset button. Think about why you chose this industry out of all the industries you could have chosen. Think about all the people you have shared precious moments with, cried with, hugged, and healed along your journey behind the chair! Live in that... work from that space. #gamechanger .
Happy Sunday my friends! Tag a friend that needs this today! ❤️N
Develop urgency, or the sale won't close.
🎯 Still on schedule, still evolving.
Keep learning, growing, changing, progressing, and questioning, as you continue to be who you’re meant to be.
Good Morning! Happy Sunday🙂 I Wanna Give Ya’ll Some Words Of Encouragement This Morning.
It Takes Being Very Uncomfortable To Get To The Next Level In Your Life. If You Want Something Bad Enough, You Have To Fave Your Fears, And Deal With The Uncomfortability In Order To Recieve Your Ending Results.
I Gotta Tell Ya’ll, I Had A Serious Fear Of Flying! I Do Not Like Heights, And I Don’t Like Being In Situations That I Have NO Control Over BUT Last Week, I Had To Get On This Plane And Go To Vegas If I Wanted To Reach The Next Level In My Life.
It Was VERY Uncomfortable. I Was Sweating, Anxiety Was High And I Was Straight Scared. The Only Option I Had In Order To Make This Happen, Was To Put My Faith In GOD And Get It Done!
With That Said, Because I Did What I HAD To Do, In Order To Get Where I Need To Go, My ENTIRE Life Is About To Change! It’s Okay To Be Scared, BUT DO IT Scared. Don’t Ever Hold Yourself Back From Anything That Can Change Your Life, Because Of Uncertainties. Make NO EXCUSES, Face Your Fears & Make It Happen💪🏾🔥💯 #creditqueen #goodmorning #happysunday #sundayvibes #nofear #growthmindset #faceyourfears #flying #airplane #uncertainties #possibilities #faith #trust #determination #motivation
Sunday Family breakfast. Talking about what challenges we will overcome for the day. Rarely happens so had to capitalize. #dadlife #family #growthmindset
As always, the best way to prepare for this question is to make sure you DO YOUR RESEARCH.
Company websites contain plenty of information about the company environment, stated and implied. Look for the "ABOUT US" section, which will highlight the work ethic of the company as a whole and sometimes provide information on individual employees.
When you answer this question, be specific and stay relatively neutral, since at this stage in the interview process you don't know what it would be like to work for the company . It’s a good idea to mention that you are flexible and adapt happily in any environment.
Avoid being dishonest, though. If there are certain environments that you absolutely cannot work in, do not say that you can handle them.

Aan een van deze bomen schreef ik op 15 minuten al mijn inspiratie! Soms moet je naar buiten gaan om dan weer naar binnen te gaan.
Three word story: pain changes everything ...
"I am actually extremely grateful some things didn't work out the way I once wanted them to" Life often gives us what we need. I've been through so much pain in the last five years of my life, but having had the last two or three years of my life being filled with trauma, grief, loss and suffering, I now am grateful for my journey. It is my pain that has brought the catalyst for change. Because of pain I spent time reaquainting myself with the love of my life: Me, and oh how beautiful it has been, I have since come to fully appreciate that "all things work together for good"
▫️just, love 🌹▫️
