This is Me;The me that I really love. The me that is happy&present.
I'm usually really not one to talk about myself but I feel like I'm embarking on a new journey, so I thought I'd share a little piece of my story;
A few days ago, I packed up & hit the road for a beyond amazing opportunity with @alina_stasik, traveling over 2,000 with 3 horses from CO, across UT, through parts of AZ, into CA & up the coast into OR. The last few months, life has been kinda tough on me. I mean, really kinda beat me up. I lost my job, was hospitalized twice and then sadly & hardest of all, I lost my Granddad, one of the BEST people this life has given me. When it rains it pours, & instead of climbing out of the trenches, out of the darkness & back into the light. I let life win, I let it myself crumble & fall & really lost sight of myself, who I am & the direction in which I'm heading. I got lost in my emotions & the turmoil inside me grew & slowly I started to self destruct other great things in my life, that really brought me joy.
It took a string of bad incidents for me to realize, whatever it is I'm doing, however it is I was dealing with all of this, going through the motions obviously wasn't the right way to go about it.
Then I decided to choose happiness. To find myself again & replenish the glass I have found to be half full to its fullest & truest potential. I decided to save myself, not just because I know I am truly the only one who can conquer my demons, but mostly because I love myself wayyy to much not to do so. I deserve so much more than that & that is something I had forgotten. It's time to change my perspective and start finding the magic in life instead of looking for the madness.
So this is me. Smiling. Not because I have to or feel like that is what expected of me but because I want too. Because I refuse to let life win, I will simply not let it defeat me. But when I look at the legacy I want to leave, I want it to be that "She Devoured life." So from this point on, that is what I will do. Devour this life & everything that it has to offer. I will come out victorious & stronger than ever. That is a promise. 😊
Wouldn’t it be powerful if you fell in love with yourself so deeply that you would do just about anything if you knew it would make you happy? This is precisely how much life loves you and wants you to nurture yourself. The deeper you love yourself, the more the universe will affirm your worth. Then you can enjoy a lifelong love affair that brings you the richest fulfillment from inside out. – #selflove#iloveme#thelifeofasocialworker#lovepearl#lovechris ♥️😍
I'm very happy and blessed to have this life. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I may be a little bit wild at times and some say a little crazy but you can't say I'm boring 😜.. I'm a very genuine person. I've come a long way and I've matured a lot. I've learned hard lessons from my mistakes and past experiences. I am who I am and I won't change for anyone. Love her but leave her wild.
Let’s talk perception, how see ourselves, and how memories linger.
I was walking along enjoy my solo time when I looked down at my shadow.
My heart dropped.
You see I immediately saw my hips and butt in the shadow and all my insecurities rushed back. •
I have been working hard on me, trying to love myself the way I am and most days I succeed.... most. •
In that split second I flashed back to 2 very real memories of when I was younger (jr. high and high school to be exact) to comments made about the size of my hips - larger than “normal” but in way less delicate phrasing. It hurt... a lot.
I then thought about all the clothes I have tried in that I loved the idea of, but were TERRIBLE on my body and clung to my hips making me so self conscious. •
Now I know in my core there is so much more to me then my extra curvy hips and they are just a piece of the amazing me, but it’s not always easy, memories linger, words hurt...
I am so glad I have so many amazing people that help lift me from the low places quickly and efficiently because it sucks being down there even for a second.

It is only the word but how to reflect and apply in my life.. or this word not really meaningful to me..!! #iloveme#imarriedme

Los momentos difíciles en donde no crees en ti mismo te enseñan que no debes de perder de vista a dónde vas , no existe ningún camino establecido para poder andar , para poder ser ni ninguna manera de vivir , vive a tu manera , ama a tu manera , como dicen por ahí : la gente como quiera te va a criticar así que ya tu sabe. ❤️💛💚💙💜🖤
“Lighten up on yourself. No one is perfect. Gently accept your humanness.”
When the world is overwhelming and a scary place I tend to unplug and give myself some self love- even if its 15 minutes in the bath with some bubbles and ice cream or maybe a nice face mask while sipping on some tea- As the very intelligent and super fabulous @rupaulofficial says- If you cant love yourself then how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else? Self love and self care is so important for the world we live in- What is your favorite way to show yourself some self love?
