If you do not know J.K. Rowling’s story, it is an amazing story of inspiration! A single mom on welfare, she wrote the Harry Potter books. She is now one of the richest people in the world who is estimated to be worth over $1 billion and gives a significant amount of money to charity. She has said that she has never forgotten what it feels like to not have enough money to pay the bills. I have been there...a single mom who had to make difficult choices about what bills I could pay and trying to make ends meet when there wasn’t enough money. To all of you single moms out there, YOU ROCK!!! Keep hanging in there - you CAN build a new life for you and your kiddos 💖💖💖

Oh my days, always stuck to banana and chocolate @barebells.uk because Vanilla sounded like it might taste like milk, and I’m not a massive milk fan.. but it doesn’t taste like milk it tastes like ICE CREAM!!! My new fave 🥰
This year has been filled with sooo many lessons but one of the biggest has been learning how to be gracious to myself.
If you’re anything like me, you are your biggest critic. I am harder on myself than anyone else will ever be capable of.
This meant when I found myself having yet another panic attack after vowing that I would no longer break to anxiety I needed to find some grace. When I slept through an alarm after promising myself I’d hit the gym, I needed to find some grace. After walking past the dirty pile of dishes day after day and beating myself up for not maintaining a perfectly clean home, I needed to find some grace. After taking my frustration out on my boyfriend and breaking down for being a total jerk, I needed to find some grace. After falling a little short one day, and even shorter the next, I needed to find some grace.
Then I started to realize the more I beat myself up for having anxiety, missing a workout, not cleaning the dirty dishes, being a butt face to my partner, or whatever the heck it was, the harder it became to stand back up and try again.
Once you understand this, you’re able to understand that every sunrise, every day, and every single moment is a chance at a fresh start.
Stop. Breathe. & Start again. ❤️
Hi, hello, gooday 👋🏻🌝👋🏻
I just recently got discharged from being inpatient at hospital for a range full of reasons and I’m in the making of starting a new account to talk about mental illness and my journey concerning that 🤕🤲🏻💛
I really want to reclaim this account and turn it into my happy place where I can share what I’m passionate about and talk about things that comes from love and that strengthens me!
I’m confused mixing my healthy creative part online with the struggle and serious part of mental illness so I’ve thought about it and I’m going to separate them, hoping that I get the inspiration and motivation to do my thing on instagram again! 🎃🍂🌞🕸🦇🍁✨
I will do a reintroduction on one of my next posts, or just an introduction for that matter of fact lmao I don’t even think I ever did one 🧐🤔🤭😅
So wait on that if you’re interested 👽🛸
⌁🌻 I’m doing my best & that’s okay 🌻⌁
Four hours and counting til’ the 2018 Thanksgiving Extravaganza begins. Currently functioning on four hours of sleep, three cups of coffee, half a granola bar, and the sweet grace of God holding my sanity together.😬Two loads of laundry left to wash, a car to pack, two kids and a dog to corral, potty, change and feed, an iPad to find, and a husband to pick up from class. This is our last “normal” holiday before our crazy new law-enforcement schedule begins and mama’s making the most of it! We may be a hot mess, but WE’RE COMING FOR YOU IOWA.🚘🦃🏈🍽🥧
Back living in the city. Trying to find a place to live I can afford on my own and start my life over. This will be a new chapter in my life as I try to figure out how to get along in life without a wife. Won't be posting a lot for a while I would think as I have to learn city EDC and not scare future landlords lol. I might post as little steps get done like getting an apartment or everything that goes into one. 48 and starting totally over. I knew I was dirt poor and now starting 100% over I really see how little a dollar goes. If you read this far I might put up for sale some of my knives as I need money and they are the only thing of value I own. #knifenut#useyourtools#becker#bk14#coldsteelknives #603 #outdoors#fixedblades#folders#knives#knifelover#edc#freshstart#devorce#cityedc#lifehappens
How do you know when your body has had enough?
Today's workout was really tough on me. I was exhausted after the first set. I couldn't lift as much as usual, collapsing during push-ups halfway through the workout. I became irritated and disappointed.
I wanted to push myself but my body was telling me something different.
Tomorrow is a new day. Tomorrow will be better. For now it's tea and snuggles.
