Let’s talk about legacy. this is a two-part caption so feel free to continue reading in the comments.
for those following along on my story this week, you know we’ve been traveling down to new mexico, which is where my grandfather maj. general jack sheppard resided. we were going down there to visit his home for the last time. & in honor of him, these words were on my heart today.
many times we are so focused on our 5-year plan, 10-year plan or for many of us just trying to plan what’s for dinner. but i feel that we forget about our eternal plan - now i know this sounds a little weird, but hear me out. we focus so much on our accomplishments and what we hope to achieve for ourselves personally like college degrees and job positions etc. but we forget that many of those things die with us. when it’s our time to leave this world many of our “things” will not live out much longer after we do. we focus on ‘my’ accomplishments verses ‘ours’ as a community.
as a maj. general, sheppard accomplished so many things like approving & setting in place the first full female flight crew, and changed the u.s. air force in so many ways that he will quite literally be in our children’s textbooks.
for those who know a little more about me, my mother is psychic medium deb sheppard @debsheppardpsychicmedium . she’s done over half a million readings across the world connecting people with their loved ones who have crossed over. the healing that she has given will forever be remembered.
i share their accomplishments for a few reasons, one i’m very proud of the people they are and i am honored to share their blood. but two - no matter what my family has done to leave a footprint on our world, i am still responsible for my impact. we all are.
i don’t know about you, but when i leave this world i hope to leave a footprint that positively impacts. each and every one of us has the power to give hope, understanding and shed light on someone else’s world. to me, it’s not just about what you achieve, but what you help others achieve.
Some days it’s not pretty.
it starts out a little rough.
you don’t hear your alarm.
you struggle to get motivated to workout, then when you finally push play your workout is just mentally tough. you ever have those days? ya. today is one of those. pushing through anyway, is the key.
being as positive as possible, like “but hey it’s friday!” and putting on your big girl pants + your favorite tunes.
so you can say, i did it anyway.
for me. 🌟
that’s what this journey is about no matter who is watching, who is keeping score or who even cares, but me...i matter and my health matters to me. .
no - i don’t wake up every morning excited to workout, i just do it anyway. it hasn’t always been that way🙂 trust me when i say i know how you feel when you have those days and i’m here for you if you need a pep talk, okay? .
treating myself to this chocolate recover drink that tastes like chocolate milk makes it better too 😉 .
enjoy everyday the best you can and when it’s not going well, stay positive, look on the bright side, find a way to change your attitude and laugh at all the things that have gone wrong and pretend like each one is the last one before it gets better. happy friday friends ♥️ #doseofpositivity #happyfriday

three years ago today, i took my life back and took charge of my overall health and well-being. not that anyone or anything was holding me hostage(except for maybe the b******t stories in my head), i just wasn’t going in the direction i wanted. so i changed the direction. it took some coaxing and convincing and i told myself i had to do it for 21 days and then i could quit. by then a habit had been formed though. i felt good. d**n good. i had energy that even my heavily caffeinated self had never experienced before. so i just kept going and going and here we are three years later still going. this is just my life now. my one and only superpower is consistency. i show up in my back room every morning at 6 am and just do the d**n thing whether i feel like it or not because i know that i’ll feel amazing afterwards. i consistently fuel my body with wholesome food (even carbs 😱) every single day, because i like to feel good. and if i feel like having cake and a cocktail, you can bet your sweet a*s i do that too! i have two regrets on this journey. 1. i wish i would have started sooner 2. i wish i had real before pictures. .
