Surround yourself with those who lift you higher, who push you to grow, who inspire you to be better. the kind of people that when you are around them, your heart says “yes, these are family.”
💞
there was a point in my life, not that long ago actually, that i severely doubted i’d find a place where i felt like i fit in. where i felt loved, accepted and appreciated. a place where people actually wanted and welcomed my company!
💞
for a very long time, i felt like a loner and a bit of an outcast. the people i had been surrounding myself with, were not healthy influences. i didn’t feel like being myself was good enough, or the right “version” of me, for them. there was some sort of standard or bar set, that i felt i was always falling short of.
💞
thankfully, i found jiujitsu, and the incredible people that came along with it. i call them my family, because i feel like i can be my true, authentic self around them. i don’t feel like i have to cookie cutter myself, just to fit some sort of mold or expectation.
💞
i am so happy now. my life is full of blessings, and joy. i am grateful and thankful for each and every one in these pictures. for in their own way, they have showed me that i am enough. me. as my raw, true, honest self. and that is the very best feeling 💞

When a little girl is giggling and running along, and tells you that one day you will be a “fun mom,” your heart is filled with a happiness you never knew before💞
.
.
life is such a beautiful gift, share it with those you love, and hold them close in your heart
💞

There’s just a few things in this photo that make it a legit throwback 😂
.
the print on that couch😳
.
i’m wearing a dress🤭
.
i’m wearing a jean dress🙈
.
is that a bow in my hair??🤔
.
omg my hair isn’t black...or blonde!🤩
.
i think i spy a curl or two in there as well...🧐
.
.
i stumbled across this and couldn’t help but share. yes i find it humorous (and hopefully you laugh along with me!), but it’s also a very sweet, tender moment i shared with my grandpa, way back in the day. he was a very special man, who always took the time to entertain my stories and ideas. even if they required letting me brush and style is hair😂 i can only imagine the story he was telling me when this moment was captured💕

this photo may not seem like anything out of the ordinary for you guys, but for me, it represents a lot of hard work, dedication, sacrifice and mental strength. i honestly never thought i would meet my abdominal muscles, and yet here they are, making a guest appearance!😍
.
the past two months have been challenging, but so so so rewarding! i have been working with a freaking awesome coach that i am incredibly thankful for. his guidance and understanding about this way of life, has completely changed my mindset on what it truly means to be an athlete, and lead a healthy lifestyle.
.
this is only the beginning, and we have so much work to do, but i am so antsy and excited for it all!! no matter what goal you have in life or what you are trying to accomplish, having a coach, making a plan and sticking to it 100% is absolutely crucial for growth and achievement. you need the accountability, the guidance, support and ass-kicking that a great coach or mentor gives you (thank you @coachgregjones 😁).
.
although there is another half to the equation of success and achievement. it also requires you to never give up on yourself!!! if i disregarded my coach’s instructions, cheated on my diet repeatedly, or slacked off when it came to the workouts, i wouldn’t be where i am at now. you have to commit 100% to you and your goal, to make it all happen.
.
but the most awesome part is...it’s totally worth it. never give up on yourself. stay consistent. be persistent. make yourself proud!!
.
also shoutout to @allinegb for being a huge support and amazing friend through this. i love you to pieces amiga, such a huge blessing in my life💕

Back in the day when i thought candy was delicious 😆 let’s be real though, the best part of those lollipops were the tootsie roll center

i can’t remember the last time i indulged in just plain c**p sugar like that, and i’m perfectly okay with it. a healthy life is my best life💗

Go where your heart calls you, where you are drawn to. don’t be afraid of a new path, a different life. you are meant to grow and evolve, and sometimes that includes past the comfort levels of others.
🦋
they might try to talk you out of it, give an opinion of why it’s not “smart” or “wise.” they might get upset, and argue with you, or just flat out ignore you. but realize, this is their fear of the unknown speaking. this is their uncomfortableness coming through. they are trying to protect you out of love, but it comes across as fear and rejection.
🦋
other people will start to resent the person you become. you will grow stronger than their grip, your goals will be uncomfortable in their hands, and they will no longer be able to handle you. your drive for life and unapologetic way of living, will be something they cannot accept. and that is perfectly okay.
🦋
those who will lift you higher, support you, encourage you, love you, accept you and believe in you, will find their place in your life. just remember that not every character making it into the next chapter of your life, is a blessing in disguise.
🦋
