#throwback to this epic spin class with @vitalfitnessstudio and @outdoorvoices. We tapped back while jamming out to Rihanna and Beyoncé and other amazing ladies on the big screen. And I want to do it again. And again. Lately, I feel I’m on the cusp of something new. My creative wheels have been churning for weeks and there’s a fire in my belly to create something new and different for Dallas. The question I keep asking is, “What’s missing in Dallas and how can I fill it?” No idea if my ideas will work, but fxck it. I’m #DoingThings.
As mothers, it can be so difficult to take time for ourselves; to refill our cups. We are so busy caring for the other people in our lives (especially our little people) that we often put our needs on the back burner. This quote is a reminder that our happiness and joy is just as important because we are our children’s light. They want a happy mama; so take the time to fill your cup and be their light.
I do! I read this the other day (but can't remember where now) and it jumped out at me as I was sitting on the couch exhausted after a day of big emotions from my 2 year old.
I have to confess on the tougher days I forget that this picture here was the dream I had for so long.
I had countless kinesiology sessions myself with the goal of being a mum and a kinesiologist at the same time, and here I am!
It can be easy to get caught up in present life challenges (like the big emotions of a 2 year old), or so focused on the next goals we want to achieve that we completely forget to celebrate our achievements, the dreams that have come true and what we already have in our lives.
Can you relate to this? Do you remember when what you have now was just a dream?
A little #tbt. Almost two years ago now, my first R&F paycheck was a measly $29... and I was ecstatic to have that little bit of extra spending money to play with 😄 I used it to treat myself to a pedicure - something I would have never splurged on otherwise
Then three months ago, I used my extra paycheck to spend an amazing long weekend in Colorado, sitting on the 30 yard line watching the Patriots crush the Broncos at Mile High Stadium 🏈
And last month, I received my biggest paycheck to date, and plan to use a little bit to treat myself to another pedicure 💁 because NEXT month I'll be sitting beachside in sunny Florida with nearly 100 inspirational R&F ladies in side-by-side mansions for our Spark Your Future Leaders Retreat - learning from some of the best in this business, including top leadership from the corporate office flying in to train us, and being spoiled by this company that has already given me so much to be grateful for. I certainly wasn't expecting this life when I joined R&F but I'm so glad I finally decided to say yes to this opportunity 🤗
Can somebody please tell these kittens it's ok to come out of the cage? We had to keep Lorelei separated while we gave her meds. She doesn't want to come out. She comes out but prefers to go back in. I came home today and found Samantha in there with her. 😼😼
