So this is what it looks like when you and your best friend are on a journey for a better and more fit life. The top picture was taken in April 2018 and the bottom one in November 2018. It's amazing what a more balanced diet and workouts will do for your overall health and well being. The biggest thing in our success is having each other to lean on when things get a little rough and also supporting one another through it all. I don't know what I would do without her. She definitely keeps me on the right track when I start to veer off in the other direction. I couldn't ask for a better friend. #fitjourney#igotyourback#friendsforlife#supportsystem#lifebalance#thepicturesaysitall#shouldertoleanon#fitmoms
Often when I meet people within the helping profession, or in a role of service to others... I wonder what their story is. Quite often it’s the ones that have experienced deep pain within their lives, which in turn wants to offer support to others. I think we would be flawed at what we would hear if it became socially acceptable to be truly raw, honest and real. The real world can be a scary place to live in. #painchangespeople#healing#hope#newbeginnings#forgivenessiskey#shouldertoleanon#besomeoneshero
Please do NOT be ashamed!!! You are NOT alone in this cruel world!!! I was sitting here getting ready to start my day and it hit me.....I am NOW 36 years old. Why was that such an epiphany? The family friend that stole my innocence was 36 years old when he stole it from my 9 year old self. For the life of me, I cannot figure out why a 36 year old grown person could find any arousal from a child. This post isn't for pity or sympathy. I just want to remind another #survivor or #victim you are not alone! One thing ppl don't understand about #childmolestation is that it damages the psyche of that child for LIFE!!!! You DO NOT have to continue to punish yourself for that evil that was done to you!!!! I am starting #survivortalks for this reason! It is crucial to show others that you can get out of the mental hell you get trapped in because of this assault! Since I let it all go to God in August of this year, I've been blessed to begin not 1, but 2, businesses!!!! There are many more in the making, with my #survivortalks movement being one of them!!!! It did mean I had to forgive (NOT forget) to get that anger and hate out of my 💜💜💜. The only way to make room for blessings is to get rid of the evil that was placed in your life by the predator. If you don't want to talk about in the comments in front of everybody, inbox me or DM me or text me!!!! Ppl who know me will tell you no matter what the time is, if I'm up then I will be there to listen and help.

Monday-Night following a long Mon-day with plenty of frustrations at the workplace including having to explain to the man-who-got-promoted-over-me why his approach was a pipe dream and having to change personal engagements to accomodate a promotion party in order to not seem a sore loser ... I am fine with being thrown curveballs and battling the urge to go outside and simply scream ... just don't ask me to pick up ypur parcels and letters because you can't find the mail room. I am happy to be the sole parent doing pick-up duty at 8pm. Not the sperm donour, not the parents of the other girl child riding with me. I am perfectly happy to chat to my daughters throughout their evening routine, giving them a sense of home and haven. What I struggle with is the loneliness that hits me almost immediately after the hubbub subsides. It would be great to be able to share my highlights and my frustrations with a partner, someone who sees me at eye level. Don't get me wrong, I am fine with shouldering the parenting gig - don't want to even call it a load. Just every now and then I'd appreciate a shoulder to lean on and a mind to brainstorm and assess ... so that I know I am not completely crazee #oneday#singlemom#singlemum#singlemummonday#singlemumloneliness#afterthehubbub#afterthehubbubdiesdown#shoulderingtheload#shoulderingtheloadalone#shouldertoleanon#notcompletelycrazy#singlemumride#buckleup
Out of all the photos and all the moments captured this one is my most favorite. It says so much and paints all that India is about in one little frame. I will never forget the moment the picture was taken, such a busy street with the hustle and bustle of everyday life in India but so much joy and so much thankfulness. My sister and I tried to keep the fear of dear Pastor Joyce being run over by a rick-shaw off of our faces while she bravely stood in the middle of traffic to capture this beauty. But the most important of all my sister and my friend I could not have made this journey without you. You were always there just when I needed you and we were a great team working together for our Jesus. I live you so much and I thank Jesus that we could be melted into this painting of India together😘. #india#bestfriend#learnedsomuch#humbled#teammates#sisters#alwaysthere#shouldertoleanon#painting#culture#colours#flavours#traffic#thankspastorjoyce😁 #lookingforwardtothegoat👍🏻 #hustle#joy#banana#lookatthetoguysattheback🤔
Would you catch me if I fell? Know that I will be here to catch you! . Whether you need a question answered. A listening friend. A silent shoulder. A voice of encouragement + support. A cheerleader. Or an opponent in debate. I’ll be here ready for when you ask me.
The Making of Love Potion #9. Just like in the song - It tastes awful. But it works. It's a super concentrated turmeric and ginger decoction. Turmeric and ginger contain the bioactive anti-inflammatory compounds curcumin and gingerol, respectively. If you ache, this is your shot. I recommend chasing it with a suck of orange. See comments for instructions. #turmeric#ginger#medicine#naturalmedicine#foodismedicine#madewithlove#shouldertoleanon
