This Is Me...... I recently listened to someone say that they hate Instagram because it’s a constant race between who’s better, the better college student, the better mom, the better sibling, etc. Then my facebook asked me to take a survey and one of the questions asked if I thought Facebook was good for the world. I honestly was unsure about that one. I don’t know if it’s really a light, or good thing for the world. But one thing I do know is life is not perfect. What you see here on Instagram and Facebook is everyone’s highlights. We are all guilty of it. We all post the pretty snow picture, not the picture of you on the ground with a hurt back because you slipped on the ice. We all post the wonderful beach picture, but not a selfie two weeks later of the intense sunburn. We all want to look good. Welp I’m here to tell you. I’m not gonna do that. You wanna know what I’m thinking or how I really feel, then ask. I’m gonna be real. Life is WAY to short to only capture the good moments. The rough ones are usually the ones that bring people together. Those are the ones that define who is really there for you and who really loves you. I decided to post a picture of my face with this comment because, honestly that’s my low point. Looking around seeing all the other girls with confidence and them standing out, makes me uncomfortable. But today I got a lot done. I noticed I was smiling because I can, and for no other reason. So I decided to take a picture. To remember this. To remember that somedays I don’t feel good but I can always smile. And honestly I just want to make people smile. If you feel that life is a struggle, try smiling. Try to help others smile. It’s not easy but man it’s so amazing. So smile #smile #itmakeslifebetter #wheelsguru

I was watching full house and it’s the episode when Stephanie has a friend over and they’re studying. His name is Charles; and Charles tell Stephanie that his father sometimes hits him. Well Charles tells her this, but tells Steph she can’t tell anyone. Stephanie decides not to tell, until Charles doesn’t show up to class one day. Then Stephanie goes to talk to uncle Jesse and tells him that Charles‘s father sometimes hits him and sometimes really bad. And then Stephanie said something amazing after uncle Jesse calls child services. Uncle Jesse tries to convince her that she did the right thing telling him. And then Stephanie response “then why do I feel so lousy?” It’s not always easier to tell the truth, but it will never be a bad thing when you do. A lot of times it will be extremely difficult. In the end it’s always the best thing to do. The results might not be what everyone wants but what everyone needs is more important. #truth #tellthetruth #itmakeslifebetter #bekind #behappy #benice #loveothers #love #endresult #itsnotaboutwhatiseasy #behelpful #dontworrybehappy

CELEBRATE each others presence with hugs and kisses. This shot wouldn't be this perfect if I asked them to pose😁. #alhamdulillah that my mobile was handy with charge to manage a candid click. . In general, kid's mood is unpredictable. It has been 5 years and 5 months and still I couldn't read hafsa's mood swings/ priorities. . When I am damn sure that she doesn't need the same toy as the younger one needed , she will ask for it the next moment. . When I am busy with the dinner prep and believed that she will sleep alone, that won't happen either and needs me little longer than usual. . When I am ready with prep of baking a cake, she will ask for donuts. . The simple trick that helped us is by giving her choices. For example - with our bedtime, when she needs my presence. I will ask her whether to help with bath or she needs a story time with me. This makes both our commitments better. . . #lorm_bingowithatwist #lifeofrealmoms #childhoodunplugged #raisinggirls #celebratelove #hugsmakeeverythingbetter #littleminds #difficulttimes #parenting101 #parentinggoals #lifewithtwo #siblinglove #candidclick #nofilter #loveisintheair #itmakeslifebetter #kidsbringjoy #kidsofinstagram #momsofinstagram #momsofabudhabi #uaemoms

You never know what a smile is hiding; what a person has been through or may be going through. Just because someone is kind and smiling doesn’t mean their life is perfect, it means they know how much a simple smile or act of kindness toward others can literally make a difference not just in someone’s day, just maybe in their life. #bekind #kindnessisfree #spreadthatshiteverywhere #smile #itmakeslifebetter

Been really struggling to find my why. As a typically passionate and highly driven person it feels so foreign and wrong to find myself lost, without any real direction, goals or ambition. I love to train but was even finding myself giving up on the lifestyle I wanted and believed in due to this lack of sense of self. Got in the leg day I had needed and been putting off for some time and feeling more uplifted then I have in some time. Nobody ever said they regretted a workout. #mentalhealthawareness #findyourwhy #sometimesidontknow #gymmotivation #trainwhenyoudontwantto #yourworthbelievingin #liftheavyshit #itmakeslifebetter at Gig Harbor Strength and Fitness

Never have I ever...enjoyed cardio like I did today! • Guys — the shift in your mindset MATTERS! I decided today was gonna just be a good day. Regardless of Rowan not sleeping, not being able to wake up for my workout cuz she would be alone in my bed, finding an ant trail in my kitchen, among many other setbacks this morning, I was still set on having a good day! • I did my CARDIO workout with a freakin smile on my face & I loved every second of it! • I’m so excited about so many things this week & life is just good you guys!!! • • • #itsthesimplethings #enjoylife #mindset #crushingoals #changingliveseveryday #cardioworkout #smile #itmakeslifebetter

Had a great weekend, was able to get a couple good 12 mile days in with @amynweisse on her visit to celebrate my 30th the day on trail, now time to get back at it. I am only a few miles away from Grayson Highlands State Park to see the wild ponies. Looking like some WET weather is hitting here this week.

It was a rough day today, from the bottom to the top. So I ate pizza. And then I had to count all my blessings and go for a good, short therapy run. Man, I love pizza. ❤️🍕 #justrun #itmakeslifebetter

Okay, guys, this is for anyone who is looking to do a quick reset. After Thanksgiving, I had planned to do a three-day refresh. The only reason I waited this long was because of my half marathon. Now that that has passed I am ready for my refresh. In the past, this 3-day cleanse has helped me with sugar cravings, sluggishness/lack of energy and bloating from all the wonderful treats. The truth is that my system is screaming and is ready to reset. I have a few people who are interested in doing it with me so we can support each other. I am extending the invite here just in case someone here would be interested in joining us. The wonderful thing about this kit is that it's pretty simple to follow and the recipes are easy to follow. If you think this is something that you could benefit from just leave me a message in the comments or send me a private message and I can give you more details. . . . . . . . #3dayrefresh #gettingbackontrack #cleansethatworks #cleanse #doingitforme #idoittofeelbetter #becauseitmakesmefeelgood #onlythreedays #icandoanythingfor3days #theresultsareworthit #youwillseeresults #itmakeslifebetter #forenergy #tiredofbeingtired #resetbutton

I've been around and around the block lately with happiness... personal happiness... not attention from someone else, not what someone can bring to the table, buy me, do for me... but pure happiness that is solely me... that no one can truly take away... and it's hard.. It's so hard to look at your life and think okay.. what am I purely in control of... and what makes me happy no matter what is falling apart .. then I came across this picture from a year or maybe even two ago... I have no idea when but I realized what makes me happy is my fitness goals ... It's that simple.. if I'm actively working towards being the best version of myself I am a happier and better version of me... my confidence, my attitude, my whole being solely revolves around my fitness world and goals... when that slips... when I don't have control over it... anxiety, self doubt and a multitude of things have space to invade the happy, confident girl I am and love to be... Why give self doubt an inch? If you don't love every piece of yourself you have to find a way to make yourself happy it tends to fall into the hands of people who don't deserve that control... but if you can find happiness in yourself, a gym routine, a hobby.. find it. I challenge you to find something that brings you joy before the new year comes ... start now... don't ever wake up and feel inadequate in life.. You are enough ... You are good enough ... and you are beautiful ... let it shine and I promise you'll feel so much better. #girlswholift #liftingismyhappy #shapeyourbody #shapeyourmind #beconfident #youareenough #youreworthit #everythingintime #youcontrolyou #dontletanyonebelessthanamazing #lookforyoursoulshappiness #workingout #toneup #sexyselfies #boudoir #boudoirfit #mygoals #chemistry #finditwithyourself #itmakeslifebetter #doyouboo #igotyou

This is where we were three years ago as we began the final journey home to heaven for our girl. This photo reminds me of the joy that can be found in even the most challenging of circumstances. Just look at their faces. Father and daughter taking delight in one another. Oh how they loved each other. That love still exists made even more powerful my our Courtney's daily intercession for us. If you are facing tragedy, sickness, heartbreak, loneliness and or rejection, have hope that this is but a season. The sun does rise my friends. There is joy to be found in the hard places when we allow God's mercy and grace to shine there. Love never fails. Go love someone today. Reach outside your own pain and misery and be a light to someone else. By serving one another, our own heart stretches making room for empathy and compassion. Two things our world could use a LOT more of. #courtneyelizabeth #myirishbeauty🍀 #neverquit #nevergiveup #neverlosehope #lovealwayswins💛 #godisgoodallthetime #golovesomeone #itmakeslifebetter #thereishopeinthehardplaces #hisnameisjesus #lossofachild #fathersanddaughters #catholiclife #familyfirst #ohhowimissherso @grouchy_historian ❤️

I had this conversation with a few good friends recently. I gravitate towards positive people. And distance myself from those who are troubling. #ItMakesLifeBetter #Positive #Supportive
