So happy, so grateful and so full of love for this amazing guy ❤️ I don’t post all that much content with Jake in anymore, not because I don’t want to but because we’re both at a point in our lives where we’re focusing on ourselves and our individual careers so we’re just SO damn busy. We don’t see each other half as much as we’d like to but to be honest, our bond is stronger than ever. It’s so amazing being in a relationship where we can both grow individually all the while strengthening as a couple 🥰 I constantly feel so loved, supported, respected by and connected to this man. Plus, don’t we look good as hell together? 🤷🏼♀️😂 #hesalright *wearing gifted @simplybeuk
Your brain cannot handle everything at equal value. Your reticular activating system filters and blocks info everyday, and guess who does the filtering?! YOU. . . Everyday that filter looks for evidence to confirm your beliefs and feelings. I told myself I didn’t have time or money to start my journey, until I did it anyway #riskittogetthebiscuit I was scared because why would this time be different, I DID IT ANYWAY. . . BASICALLY, your mind controls the outcome. The more you believe it to be true, it happens. It took a hell of a lot of work to train my brain to figure out how to accomplish the things I want, but I had to start, or I’d just keep wondering. Idk if you’ve noticed but staying complacent and #settling is one of my worst fears 🤮 #selfgrowthjourney . . When you come up with excuses and reasons not to, your brain automatically looks for proof to confirm those reasons. Excuses can be hella valid. I get it, I really do, I’m real overwhelmed this week. But instead of I don’t have time, say “how can I make this work with what I DO have.” Instead of I don’t have money, say “I can achieve this, what do I need to do or budget to get what I want.” . . Visualize what you want your life to look like. Stop wanting it and TAKE ACTION to get it. Train your Brain to have a different filter. . . Interested in transforming your mind and body with me? I’d love to share this journey with you 💕#youareworthmorethanyouknow #unlockyourpotential
💛 You can still be happy and have acne. 💛 I was just browsing through my camera roll and came across these photos from last year when my skin was relapsing and I was feeling rather rubbish and self conscious again. I remember taking these photos in my car ( I wasn’t driving obviously ) and picking fault as even though I had concealer on I could see the redness. Now I see them and just see Sharna, a happy bubbly young women with more to offer the world than nice skin. The last photo was my skin when I got home and took the make up off. This post is basically to say you can still S M I L E and enjoy life WITH spots. Be the sunshine. 💛 #acne#acnetreatment#adultacne#beautystandards#selfgrowthjourney#beautyispower#progressnotperfection#beautyisyou#bethesunshine#skincarecommunity#skinpositivity#bodypositivity#smile#loveyourflaws#flawsome#yourworthit
About Me Q&A: 1- Always in my bag: Auvi-Q or Epi-pens for my 9yo son. I’m a food allergy mom and I am always carrying these life-saving meds for my kiddo. 2- A bad habit I have: letting my insecurity get the best of me sometimes and forgetting how far I’ve come. 3- First thing I do in the morning: go to the potty 😅 4- A fear I have: not being good enough. I think that’s a pretty common fear that we all share. I try to keep it in check. Also, snakes. I HATE snakes! 5- Currently loving on insta: seeing the small businesses I’ve been following growing and changing right along with me @shebold_stock and @momtrepreneurplanner are the two that I enjoy watching the most because I see their growth and it’s inspiring. Your turn!! Answer them all or just a few, I want to get to know you!
Are you ready to turn the page? Start a new chapter? Start by getting in touch with your emotions. Change requires you to up level your emotions. It requires you to sit with your emotions and be uncomfortable. It also means you need to leave behind what is no longer serving you. Acknowledging your emotions allows you to raise your energy and create the changes you want to see in life. You're worth it!
✨Baby girl it's time to get out of your own way! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's been your time, your season, & your moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just because things are feeling uncomfortable right now for you doesn't mean that this isn't the time for you to level up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That uncomfortable feeling means things are shifting for a reason. If you weren't ready everything would be at a standstill. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whatever place in your life where things are feeling uncomfortable for you that means you've outgrown it. Time to move up! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DROP an 🙋🏾♀️ emoji if you are ready to claim your season!
I am my own authority. And I hope this space inspires you to recognize that you are your own too. I’m at a space where I no longer allow anything outside of me to hold higher authority over me than my own inner knowing. You don’t need a tarot reading or horoscope to tell you who you are. You don’t need your friends to analyze your relationship or life choices and decisions. You don’t need anyone outside of you to tell you who to be or what path to take. It can be incredibly valuable to gain the insight, perspectives and guidance of others. But ultimately, we must make our own decisions. Ultimately, it’s upto you. Developing your own discernment is one of the greatest gifts that you can give to yourself. This includes discernment when it comes to which insights, perspectives and opinions you allow in. Who do you allow to influence you? Being picky with your energy and who you surround yourself by is not only an act of self love, but lost importantly one of self respect. If you are going to seek out the insights of others, ask yourself- is this person in a position to guide me? Have they achieved what I want to achieve? Do they practice what I want to practice? Are they living the lifestyle or the job or the relationship that I want? If the answer to any of those questions is no, that person does not have the insight to guide you. They simply haven’t lived or experienced what you are seeking. 99% of our confusion in life stems from not being clear about who we are, what we want, how we feel, and what we truly desire. It can take a lot of work to get others peoples ideas about al of these things- who you are, how you should feel, what you should want- out of your head. But once you do, the only authority you truly need to guide you, is your own heart. Your own inner knowing. Your gut will always let you know which way to go. Your heart will always let you know which way you want to go. And your mind will help you implement the necessary steps and
Follow @coachkimrongilbert to learn true confidence... INNER CONFIDENCE and tag someone who could use this too. ⬇️ . Story: You know the saying..."You Only Live Once - YOLO? Well don't worry if you don't, as it a lie. . Let me explain. . You see, there are literally millions of people who go through a change so great, it forces them to change everything and start again. Kinda like turning vegan or stop smoking. The life you had before that turning point is gone and you started a new one, with different ideas and understanding. . So, when you meet a women for the 1st time that you believe knocks your socks off, you get the courage to go up to her and ask her name, it all seems nice at first but then you notice something is not right. The warm feeling you were getting is no longer there and you can literally 'feel' her attraction going away. . That my fellow INSIDERs was you failing her test and being friend zoned. The more you fail, the more she will find a reason to move as far away from you as possible as you to her are just another f*ck boy who doesn't get 'IT' . . ⬅️Learnt this one the hard way but the next post will show you how to pass her test and later on I'll show you how turn it around and test her. . Ladies am I wrong? Guys do you feel it's right for women to test us? Let's discuss. Coach K
Self compassion is when you are free from your own judgements, and kind to yourself. Set yourself free from your own mental blockage and start taking care of your self with proper self care! I repeat “PROPER” self care, meaning not buying tons of clothes, not drinking alcohol overly, not being in a toxic relationship, not binging on unhealthy food, etc. those are opposite from self-compassion and self-care. Do activities that bring love and kindness to your mind, body, heart, and soul. My practices for self compassion are • meditation • exercise • avoiding unhealthy food • having a loving relationships with others Practice mindfulness and kindness during this self care act. How do you express self compassion? I would love to hear and learn from your ways.
I’m trying carb cycling and I like it! Here are two dinners: one on regular macros one on low carb day. Same idea. Slightly different ingredients: Rice as the base - Trader Joe’s Fried Rice OR Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Rice Mix. Next add a lean protein - I used ground turkey breast in both. Eggs - use regular or egg whites depending on macros. Cheese - I added shredded mozzarella on low carb day to boost fats. See my Stories👆for the video on adding the eggs. And know that this is a base. You can add more veggies (roasted broccoli is a go to for me). You can change the protein (chicken would be delish). Having quick easy dinners (especially in the summer) is key to staying on track. Ok Friends, let’s hear it.... what’s your fave go to quick dinner. We could all use new ideas👇👇👇!
I hope everyone is having a great week so far! ☕️💓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I recently travelled to L.A where I witnessed some enticing art, unique architecture, amazing cuisine & beautiful people . I also noticed that everyone has a lil doggy 🐶 & that people are so much more active.. which is refreshing to see. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I actually gained some insights while on this short trip & learned/ believe that each obstacle we face in life are put in place as opportunities for us to learn a lesson from & grow as a person...instead of looking at certain situations in a negative way.. try looking at them in a way that makes you understand why something like this has entered your life & what can I gain from it. It’s easy to dwell, to hold a grudge or to get so caught up in the moment.. it’s hard to accept what has happened, reflect on the situation, yourself & how it made you feel.. & to simply move on 🧚🏼♀️✨ honest self-reflection is an extremely important tool that we as individuals need to do engage in order to grow as a person and break out of the obstructive habits/ coping mechanisms that have engulfed our lives. We need to be honest & look at ourselves critically so that we can gain insights on who we are & what has shaped us as individuals & what we need to work on. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It still blows my mind 🤯 that I get to work from wherever I am! Yesterday, I worked at my besties house while our kids swam and made memories together. . . I feel so incredibly blessed that I get to choose when and where I run my business. At home, poolside, traveling, coffee shop, vacation, in the car, in bed... ANYWHERE! Best of all, I choose my hours. The flexibility is something you can't put a price tag on. . . If you have ever thought about starting your own beauty biz or have questions about what exactly that means, drop a 🙋🏼♀️🔽 . . This opportunity has changed my life and my families life! I know that sounds so cliche', but its true! This business has given me so much more than extra $$. It has given me sisterhood, travel opportunities, entrepreneur skills, social marketing coaching and taught me what it means to be a leader and empower other women to feel confident and beautiful! . . This is your personal invitation! Id love to have you on this journey of self growth with me! Time to level up sister!! ❤️ . . #beautyboss#beautyindustry#beyourownbossbabe
I never liked reading. I was never good at it. And school didn't help - reading books that were uninspiring, with no purpose, just to be tested on later. It wasn't until after I finished university where I discovered the joys of books and the value they provide. It all started with @timferriss and The Four Hour Work Week. It was interesting, funny, but most importantly I could relate to what he was talking about and apply it to my life. Books are so valuable. Whether it's an audio book or hard copy, the people who are succeeding in life are reading. Comment below what book you're reading or are going to read! 👇💕 - Elisabeth @coachelisabethking

❓You never get what you don’t ask for.❓ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m sure you’ve heard this one before... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🧐But if you really think about it, it applies to virtually anything in your life. If you want to grow in your relationship with someone but aren’t opening up the tough conversations needed to grow, then you’ll never get to where you want the relationship to potentially be. If you want to grow personally but aren’t asking the necessary questions of yourself or seeking outside guidance, then you’ll remain where you are until you decide otherwise. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 😖Hard conversations are, well, hard. They aren’t meant to be easy to bring up and dive into especially with someone else. There is no avoiding the discomfort that comes from conversations that spark growth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🤯But, if you don’t ask for it, the answer will always be no. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your dreams will always be no. Your growth will always be no. Your goals will always be no. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 😅If you’re asking for growth, then you’ll get it. And deep down, you know what it takes, but it likely scares the shit out of you. But you know what? You and everyone else out there showing up for their growth are scared in some form or another. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌻What you’re after is incredibly brave and terrifying at times, but that is
Last few weeks were quite stressful, a lot of things went wrong, all at once. On top of it all, I took too long to start addressing the problems and let them linger around creating a complete chaos. My home was a complete mess too. . In many ways, the chaos in my house parallels the chaos in my head. When I don't put away my clothes, they linger around, pile up, and create a mess. And when I don't process and put away my thoughts, they create a mess too. Agh. So organizing and throwing away unnecessary things is a good practice. An even better practice is not to acquire things (or thoughts) I don't need! I've given away at least a third of my closet, and it feels so good. . I grew up with a closet the size of a refrigerator which I shared with my mom and my sister. And while, as an adult, I expanded the size of my closet a little, I always tried to keep it within reasonable bounds (hmm, should probably define "reasonable"). I tried not to buy things just because they are on sale, not to buy more of the same, looked for quality rather than quantity of my wardrobe pieces... And still, I could give away a third of my closet. We need much less we than we think!! . I am not a hard core minimalist, I don't believe in extremes, but I do believe that a measured minimalism is a key to building a healthy and happy living for ourselves. . So when allowing an item into your surrounding and a thought into your head, select them based on their necessity, quality, and beauty. I am definitely working on it. . And if you read this far, please comment or put 😊, so I know that you are out there in this big world, going through the same thing I go through!
