How do couples maintain intimacy after having kids? I hear this question often. Making connections when things are new and different is fun and easy. However, maintaining closeness with your significant other over long periods of time is difficult. Popular culture usually is not helpful in setting us up for success here. In the fairy tales we tell our children the prince and the princess always get married and “live happily ever after”, just before the words “The End”. Most romantic movies end when main characters get together and are experiencing a state of bliss. Further our main way of handling a relationship or anything else that is not working is to move on or get a new one. So if you don’t want to get divorced around year 7 when the newness dies and tension has had sufficient time to build up, what do you do? . . 🔑 1. Have an intimate discussion with your partner. 2. Ensure that you’re in a space where you won’t be interrupted. 3. Don’t play the blame game. 4. Set realistic expectations/goals and create a plan to help you achieve these goals.

Her strength and vigor will not be compromised. As we near the end of Women’s History Month, let us give gratitude to the women who dare to not only create a table, but build a house so other women will have a safe haven to be the powerful creatives, critical thinkers and encouraging forces that we already are! Swipe to identify some of the women to watch in 2019. There are so many more, but IG only allows me to share 10 at once. . . I know some of these women personally, through professional mentorship and some I’ve observed and admired from afar. These empowering leaders come in all SHADES. @shadesdelle They are leading in their industries with courage and grace.

Today’s empowerment conference in Miami by the Jamaican Women of Florida was outstanding! I’m so honored to have been on the mentorship panel as a Philanthropist and leader who shared my expertise on leading in a military organization. To top that, I had the opportunity to sing a couple songs and connect with an engaged audience the best way I know how to! More clips and pictures to come. 🇯🇲 🇺🇸 🌺 🌺 Thank you @jwof_inc for trusting me to be a speaker and entertain your audience!

It is so true that as moms we rush around trying to get 1 Million and 1 things done all day long! Right? But I have found that if I relax into the day, and set only 3 clear priorities in the morning, Everything that needs to be done, will be done! 🤗 Even though they sometimes don’t get done, it is bigger in that moment to have grace with myself and know it can be pushed until tomorrow than it is to ridicule myself. If it goes unfinished and it is still important, I simply move it to the top of the list tomorrow. Having a “Poor Me” attitude never helps me and only gets me down... instead I choose to fill my mind and thoughts with strength and courage. I step out and offer to serve others with honor! Can you start your day today by looking in your own eyes and knowing you have strength, courage and honor? Because you do!! Cheers to a glorious Thursday. 😘 #ulcerativecolitisfighter #busymomma #happymomma #healthiswealth🌟 #dailydevotion #momof2girls #momof2boys #ulcerativecolitis #heartandhealth #momof4 #momoffour #fitmomof4 #ibd #ibs #colitis #healthself #nutritioniskey #havegrace #startthedayright #gymnasticsmom #footballmom #cheermom #dancemom #balletmom #cheercoach #3priorities #teamheartandhealth #withcourageandgrace #nopoorme 🤗

When your baby brother admires you and want to follow your lead. I’m proud to be the officer who administered the Oath of Enlistment. . . I was a little emotional after the first line of the oath, but I regrouped as he smiled and I made sure I didn’t mess it up for him. . . I’ve administered the oath to dozens who re-enlisted and a few initial enlistments. Today was a very special enlistment. My mom was absolutely enthusiastic to see her first born enlist her last born. My parents are officially empty nesters!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 . . Oh, my brother decided to grow his hair into an Afro since the military is going to give him a haircut regardless if he just had one. That barber 💈 is going to have his/her hand full. 🤣 God speed brother, you got this!!

COMFORTABLE IN MY SKIN; EMBRACING MY AUTHENTICITY WITH COURAGE AND GRACE.🌺 Have you ever wished you could be in someone else’s skin? It appears that it’s a common struggle with people feeling uncomfortable in their own skin. This can lead to harsh self-criticism and social comparison. It’s okay to be dissatisfied with factors in your life, but we often believe those factors to be entirely our own fault. If we stop comparing ourselves to others by their careers, personal relationships, financial status, social life and so on, we will stop believing that we are failing. The standards we hold ourselves based on social media, TV shows, and magazines are impossible. . Imagine, someone who wishes they could have a different skin shade and struggles daily to accept themselves. Whether light or dark skin, some tan and some bleach their skin. I know several persons who bleach their skin and it all began with their desire to become a little lighter to look like someone else. That desire turns into a little more and before you know it, their beautiful shade of brown turns into grey with their veins being so visible that a phlebotomist would never miss it! Skin bleaching is an epidemic. . . Do you think skin bleaching is a mental health issue? How can we end the cycle of self-hatred, criticism, and low self-esteem? We must counteract these thoughts with everything that we find amazing about ourselves. We must begin to treat ourselves kindly and react to what we see as inadequacy with self acceptance and self love. Embrace your shade. With courage and grace. -Sincerely Maxine Reyes . . . . #withcourageandgrace #embraceyourshade #skinbleaching #blackgirlmagic #mentalhealthawareness #blackhistorymonth #empowerment #flexininmycomplexion #coaching #lifecoach #selfcare #selfconfidence #selflove

It was a pleasure chatting with the amazing Reverend Felica Thompson @revfelicat on WIDU 1600 AM in @fayetteville.nc.local. . . We discussed raising children in today’s easily influenced society, women leading in the military, and of course my creative side of music, film and fashion. Felica, you are a blessing to the community and your Women’s Ministry. Thanks for having me. I’ll share pics and more videos clips of this interview on IG soon. . . This app wouldn’t allow me to be great and show both persons. I’ll find an editor that will allow me to InstaSize videos. Can anyone on here recommend a good video editor?

I am proud to announce that my second book is out this month. I was invited to collaborate with other powerful and professional women to share their stories to inspire nations in this book entitled “Women Inspiring Nations” with the incredible visionary @cherylempowers. . . I am grateful for this opportunity to talk about leadership, overcoming hurdles, living with a chronic illness, and transformation. What an incredible time I’m having, letting go of baggage and embracing all the things that God has placed on my plate! It’s not all gourmet, but I’m never hungry so I won’t complain. To God be the glory! . . Please send me a message if you would like to get more information on this! If you would like a copy, you may order by emailing withcourageandgrace@Gmail.com or order directly at the link in Bio. I’ll be in Washington D.C. for the VIP book launch this weekend.

This is my daughter Tori! She is one of the most resilient children I know. She is the reason why I work so hard and fiercely face any obstacle without reservations. She deserves a role model that does not settle for mediocrity, a mentor with dignity that demands respect, and an authentic leader that incorporates humility in her actions. I am willing to set the example for her by facing my fears and getting back up whenever life knocks me down. I embarked upon a new journey this time last year, and I’m about to challenge myself in an arena that I’ve dabbled in, but not fully engulfed myself. I will travel down that road this year. I look forward to having you all on the journey with me. . . Despite my fears, I will not fail her and I will not fail to prepare her for the world, with courage and grace! I love my daughter, family, friends and my tribe! It takes a village to raise amazing kids and I am grateful for anyone who has helped my family along the way. Praise be to God for taking my husband and I home to her unharmed after being in dangerous locations for work, also keeping her protected while we were gone. With courage and grace! 🙏🏽 Sincerely, Maxine @happilyjoint . . . . . #withcourageandgrace #womeninspiringwomen #momlife #parenting #raisinggirls #coach #singer #speaker #intentionalparenting #womeninspiringwomen #momandme #girlup #educateourgirls #blackmoms #jamaicanwomenofflorida #motheranddaughter #womenleaders #militarymom #militarychild #leadership #momsofinstagram #jamaican #puertorican #americanmom

Today, we continued our fitness journey together after leading a running team of more that 50 persons (couples and singles). We tracked our miles and competedwith ourselves and each other for fun. We challenged one another and cheered each other. . First we jogged/walked with our 9 year old daughter and our French Bulldog for 1 mile. We then took our first couples exercise session of the year and completed it after 5 miles. We talked about our plans for the first month and upcoming activities in second quarter. It was quite refreshing that after 21 years of marriage, we still get excited when we talk about the past year and slaying upcoming goals together. . . We thank you for your being on this journey with us and we look forward to blessing one another with inspirational posts, couples connect groups, and any upcoming @happilyjoint events. . . May God continue to bless you and your marriage. If you’re not married, may God bless you with your husband or wife this year. Happy 2019 everyone!

Hello MaxWorld!! Do you struggle with being patient? Patience is not simply having the ability to wait, but how we behave while doing it. Whether you’re waiting on an opportunity to lead you to achieving your goals, responding to your loved ones in the heat of an argument, etc., make the extra effort to be patient.

Coming this week on the BLOG is an intimate chat with @jamaicagleaner in case you didn’t get a chance to read the paper when it initially published. Website link in BIO. “In the two decades that they have been married, Maxine said that she has learnt that you can't express love halfway. "You have to go all in. When we first got married, I was hesitant to love him the way I should, mainly because I was scared of being vulnerable and possibly getting hurt. He convinced me that he was there to keep me safe and love me the best way he knew how. We are both believers in the Word of God, so that helped me to open up." @jamaicagleaner Thank you! . . . . #withcourageandgrace #happilyjoint #makehappinesslast #relationshipresiliency

Who else is gearing up for Thanksgiving? Haha! Since Wellness plays a big role in my family, we started some traditions that helps us to stay on track with our fitness. My husband started a running group for some persons that he mentors and it has grown to over 30 persons to include spouses. (SLIDE for top 10 standings) I am doing very well this month with my aerobic workout. My goal to to get to 50 miles by the end of November. . . Tomorrow we will do our traditional Thanksgiving run. It doesn’t matter what the temperature is like outside. Or where we spend the holiday, we always ensure that we run a minimum of 2 miles on Thanksgiving Day. We then indulge freely into the festivities.

Sometimes people come into your life unexpectedly and change it forever! Be grateful. “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8 | NIV ❤️❤️ 👗 @stylistjbolin . . . . #reallove #marriage #relationshipgoals #goals #happilyjoint #faith #christian #happilyjointfamily #happywife #happyhusband #husbandandwife #proverbs31woman #militaryspouse #armywife #marriagebootcamp #marriageretreat #strongbonds #fortbragg #fayettevillenc #springlake #armyofficerarmywife #withcourageandgrace #fitfortherole at Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation

Aaah the blessings of being young with little care in the world. I took these pictures in my backyard in Homestead, FL. Maxine Chang Reyes, a young 29 years old Airman, married, no kids, healthy and living life to the max! . 🌺 The difference between then and now? Well, a lot more blessings. God has blessed me with the most adorable daughter, I am still happily married to the same God fearing man who is an outstanding leader at home and in his profession. I have been to the war in Afghanistan and came back with all my limbs and well... most of my sanity, haha not complaining it could be worse. I’ve been through the dungeons and rose above it all to a point where my joy is now UNSPEAKABLE, the things I find myself worrying about are problems other people wish they had. Do you hear me? . 🌺 Choices...I am truly grateful and want you to know that your past should only encourage you to do amazing things today and leave your legacy! Go through your old pictures and live in the moment. See if you are where you want to be today. If you have concluded that you are not there, start taking the steps you need to get there.

Who has their refrigerator stocked like this? @fullyrawkristina does! I pay attention to what I consume and fruits and vegetables have always been a consistent part of my diet growing up in the countryside of my lovely island of Jamaica 🇯🇲. I never get tired of fruits especially and I continue to ensure that these food groups remain a large part of my diet. On your next trip to the grocery store, try to select items like these to consume. Make at least one shelf in your fridge the shelf for your favorite fruits and vegetables. 😁 With that said, let us be reminded of the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control." With courage and grace. -MR 10.25.2018 . 🌺What’s your Favorite fruit?🌺 . . . #withcourageandgrace #fitfortherole #makehappinesslast #maxinereyes #sincerelymaxine

Have we met? This is a throwback to Veterans Day in 2016. This was at the City of Orlando Veterans Day Parade. I’ve been blessed with the natural gift to sing and I’ve used my voice in so many ways to help others. I’ve been singing for a long time and will continue to do so. . 🌺 Sometimes people focus more on that talent and disregard my other accomplishments like my more than 20 years of service as a combat dual military veteran. Although I love to sing, my gift will never outshine my honorable work for the past 20 plus years. If you just began following me, here’s a three liner introduction: I am an immigrant of Jamaica 🇯🇲 and I proudly served in the armed services of the United States of America🇺🇸. Most importantly, I am a dedicated mother of a 9 year old daughter and devoted Army wife. . 🌺 What talent would you like to share with us?😊 . . . . . . #armyfresh #army #orlando #womenveterans #miami #palmbeach #fortlauderdale #miramar #blackgirlmagic #womeninthemilitary #veteran #singer #speaker #jamaican #american #veteransday #floridaveterans #maxinereyes #sincerelymaxine #jamaica #womenempowerment #philanthropist #unwomen #essence #tbt #soldier4life #withcourageandgrace #fitfortherole #makehappinesslast #maxinereyes at Orlando, Florida

HAPPY MONDAY! Leadership in the home is taking on a new dynamic for many households. The Reyes family is no exception. We prefer the burden of leadership to be distributed equally between us. However, men are increasingly becoming passive in their roles as leaders in their homes. This is due to women taking a stronger position of authority that is directly proportional to their financial contributions to the household income. • 🌺 This steady increase in confident leadership by women, can make men with insecurity issues waiver in the obligation to support their wives as they take off and conquer the world. It takes a confident and faith based husband to provide unwavering support to these Courageous & Graceful women. • 🌺 The insecure husband may see this as a weakening of his position. The more confident type of husband, my husband, supports his wife nonetheless. They take pride in tending to the children, and don’t hesitate to tackle household chores. They stay COMMITTED! These men should be viewed as commendable and worthy of praise. Today, I recognize my remarkable husband for his genuine leadership and support of all my goals, dreams, and aspirations! He is the only man that truly has my best interests at heart. 🌺 • 🌺 #DramaFreeZone #aintnobodygottimeforthat #inspiration #motivation #confidence #husbandandwife #leader #leadership #reallove # #armywife #milspouse #wife #husband #blacklovedoc #withcourageandgrace #insecurities #happiness #teamwork #usie #theshaderoom #forbescouple #forbeswomen #happilyjoint #courageousandgraceful at Orlando, Florida

You will hear "No" often and may feel discouraged by it. Your self confidence may even decrease and you may gather thoughts of getting accustomed to "No" stop right there! When others tell you "No" you must tell yourself "Yes!" Do not depend on others to give you what you already earned! Say "YES" to you! With courage and grace, you are Fit For The Role! . . @martinaillustration #fitfortherole #withcourageandgrace #confidence
