I’m an only child. A miracle baby! Worshipped & adored by my parents. An Angel baby. Well behaved and mannered. Eager to please Jesus & my parents & to be a good girl.
I believed I had to be a “good girl” to be worthy of love. To be perfect all the time. When I failed I lied to cover it up.
As a teenager, when depression first found me, I pretended everything was fine. I lied or would hide. Take a bath to cry in secret, asking the heavens what was wrong with me? Why was I so desperately miserable? Why couldn’t I be perfect & beautiful like a Cheerleader or Cher from Clueless?
Hiding & lying became second nature. I lied about my eating disorder. Drinking. The drugs Momma found in my glove compartment. I lied about anything that didn’t fit what I thought others needed me to be.
Lying like this piled up until I felt no one knew me. Making it even harder to feel loved. “If the knew who I really was, they wouldn’t love me.”
Honesty truly is the best policy. It’s not always easy or comfortable, but the truth is all we have. Holding your truth in, hiding it away, makes it a toxic thing that eats away at you from the inside. Let it set you free instead.
I am a good girl because I am a daughter of the Universe here just doing my best. I am, in all my glorious imperfection, worthy of love. And so are you.
What are you hiding that you want to let into the light?

Cuando nos ponemos una meta arrancamos con el mayor entusiasmo y motivación posible. Pero conforme pasa el tiempo y nos vamos encontrando con obstáculos nuestra motivación decae. ⠀
Si alguna vez has pasado por esta situación mira estas recomendaciones que te serán de ayuda.⠀
📌 Visualizate logrando eso que deseas. Esta es una herramienta muy poderosa ya que te prepara y condiciona para ponerte en acción y lograr tu objetivo. ⠀
📌 Determinación y convicción. Una vez que estás claro de qué quieres alcanzar, examina tu situación actual y confía en tus posibilidades. Ten la convicción de que sí lo puedes lograr. ⠀
📌 Voluntad. No todos los días despertaremos con la misma motivación y esto es normal. Aquí es donde tú fuerza de voluntad tiene que ser fundamental en esos días no tan buenos. ⠀
📌 Recuerda esos momentos en los que has dado pequeños pasos para alcanzar tu meta. Conectate con esos recuerdos en los que te sentiste feliz por tus logros. Esto te hará querer repetir esa vivencia.⠀
I thought I was depressed because my life was tough.⠀
I thought I was depressed because I was tired.⠀
I thought wrong.⠀
I had depression because I was completely out of alignment with who I am.⠀
Pretending to be a good little Afrikaans girl.⠀
Pretending to be satisfied with an average life.⠀
Pretending to be a domesticated woman who doesn't curse, ⠀
who doesn't laugh absurdly loud,⠀
who doesn't dance in the shopping isle.⠀
It was the oppression of myself that had me depressed.⠀
What are your emotions telling you today?
I know it feels like you're not seeing the results you want to see right now but it's coming.
Jumping around to the next new thing won't get you to where you want to be. Remember last time?
Keep your eyes on the prize and know that consistency wins WAY MORE than someone with knowledge who doesn't apply it.
I just want to make sure you believe in yourself, you believe in your vision, you LEAD with your vision and you stick to the plan.
If you're doing all the above, you're GOLDEN!
Feel into what actually lights you up in each moment. Tuesday evenings are usually for yoga for me, but with the sun shining and so many intuitive downloads coming through all day long... I felt called to take my homework to the hammock instead!
Giving myself an hour, and then going for a trail run. Because I know a little physical activity puts all my chemical functions in order, and I’ve gotta fuel my body another way tonight since I’m skipping yoga.
And I feel really good about it all!
Sometimes I think we can set restrictions on ourselves that we may not even mean to, like “on Tuesdays, we do yoga”.
But when we are truly IN the present moment we can sense what our souls really need from us. We can follow our joy. And if we trust those joyful clues, we will never be lead astray.
Trust what you’re feeling called to do. Let me know how that goes ☺️
😄 Terceirizar responsabilidade é tão confortável. Tão fácil. Tão simples. Tão prático...
❓A boa e velha pergunta: se o governo (isso apenas como exemplo, mas coloque aqui qualquer argumento que você use de justificativa para suas questões) está ruim, o que VOCÊ tem efetivamente FEITO, diariamente, por isso? Qual tem sido o SEU papel/ações para desviar este obstáculo? .
🤔Problema todo mundo tem, mas o que VOCÊ tem feito com eles? Quais os seus aprendizados? Quais os seus movimentos? .
👎🏻Ou, vai preferir manter-se no silêncio, drama e vitimismo? Isso não resolve, não tira obstáculo algum da sua frente, muito menos te gera aprendizado. .
😰Evoluir às vezes dói, aprender às vezes cansa, solucionar às vezes desgasta. Mas as colheitas sempre vem, em menores ou maiores proporções. 💪🏻
Every time I settled for less I regretted it. In the last three years I told myself that was over. Since that decision was made I’ve lived up to every goal & regretted nothing. When I hold myself and others to a higher standard we rise to a higher standard. If you’re not willing to rise with me, or willing to help yourself, there’s nothing I can do for you but remind you that you’re worth the work and better than you think you are. Never settle, we’re often worth much more than we think.
There are not many women that inspire me, but I simply adore this woman right here. Jada is a genuine bright soul, who exudes a beautiful balance of quiet confidence and strength. This was a well deserved award, keep blazing that trail Queen for the world to see. 🔥🔥🔥

How to See the Value in What you Have to Teach and the Fable of “I’m Only Self Taught” - new on our blog ⛰️👈⠀
We’ve seen some online course creators battle doubt and worry that they aren’t qualified to teach others. These feelings might be a result of being “only” self taught or simply a result of having not yet reached some ideal, ultimate goal of aiming to be at the absolute peak in all aspects of a given field.⠀
This internal feeling of being “found out” or exposed as a fraud for being under qualified is called imposter syndrome. It is extremely common for entrepreneurs and creatives to suffer from imposter syndrome.⠀
In our latest post we share a few reasons why that doubt can be discarded, and why -- your knowledge is valuable to others --, even though you might not have all the answers yet, and whether or not you were self taught.⠀
Have you ever struggled with impostor syndrome, do you still struggle with it? How have you worked to combat it?
Can I ask you a question?⠀
Are you giving yourself the greatest chance of success in achieving your health and wellness goals?⠀
Take a moment and really think about it...⠀
Around 55% of all New Year’s resolutions are health related, such as exercising more or eating healthier. ⠀
However after just 30 days, more than 75% of people have already failed or given up, and only 8% actually achieve them.⠀
What are you doing today to make sure you are in that 8%?⠀
If you are really serious about achieving your goals then you probably already know you need help.⠀
This is exactly why I founded Mana Women’s Wellness. ⠀
To empower women like you to take control of their own health and actually achieve their health and fitness goals.⠀
Too many strong, incredible women are missing out on living their best lives due to a simple lack of ⠀
guidance and knowledge. ⠀
They give up and settle for a life that’s merely “good enough” because they just don’t know how to get started on their wellness journeys.⠀
JOIN THE MANA WELLNESS TRIBE AND START GETTING RESULTS TODAY!⠀
If you want to share your success story, please tag me and use the hashtag #manawellnesstribe ⠀
I would love for you to help inspire other women in our community stay motivated and achieve their goals!⠀

Para alcançarmos nossos objetivos e realizamos nossos sonhos, temos que sair da zona de conforto! Nada vai mudar de você continuar fazendo a mesma coisa!
Uma pessoa que quer sair da média, quer ser melhor, que fazer diferente ela sabe que precisa passar por todas essas “zonas” mas tá tudo bem, ela vai assim mesmo! Ela supera o medo, ela se coloca à disposição para aprender até conquistar o que deseja.
Tenha clareza que antes de você conseguir, vai ter a dificuldade, mudar hábitos não é fácil porque se fosse fácil todooooooooo mundo fazia! Vai ser difícil, vai precisar de disciplina, vai ter que dizer não a muitas coisas, convites e pessoas mas vai valeeeeeeeeer a pena!.
Seja qual for teu sonho, se for teu, se for te fazer feliz, se você se sentir melhor quando alcançar, vale a pena sair da zona de conforto, passar pela zona do medo, ficar o máximo possível na zona do aprendizado e evoluir até a superação!
Vá e não desista!
When the LORD God was using Signs, wonders and miracles in Egypt. Causing plagues, diseases and death to fall upon the Egyptians as a result of “Pharaoh”( is an Egyptian word meaning “great house”) not willing to release the children of Israel from oppression.
Right next door, in the region of Goshen, not one hair on the children of Israel’s head was touched.
God made a clear distinction between His people and Pharaoh’s people. Exodus 8:21-23
It remains the same today. When the world, labor industry, marketplace, Wall Street, even your neighbors- are thrown into chaos because of a self reliant, demonic world system.
The favor, protection and provision of the LORD and your obedience as you harken unto His still voice will have you live in prosperity. Untouched. Unscathed.
There are two kingdoms. The kingdom of darkness(Satan rules. Symbolized by Egypt/Pharaoh/Babylon in the OT) and the Kingdom of God( Highest Heaven where Father God and Christ Reigns over all kingdoms seen and unseen revealed in the NT by Christ and the prophets....#ikingamongstkings
Pain is our greatest teacher. The trials and tribulations we go through in life are meant to not only teach us what we need to know but it also helps us in the path of learning what we need to know in order to help others. Going through things in life that rip at our very core are not fun and they're certainly not without challenge but it's through those experiences that make us better people and relatable to others who have gone through it or are going through it and don't understand it. Beautiful people are not born overnight. They are human. They are vulnerable. They are stronger then they even realize. They don't stay a victim, they become a Victor. They not only survive but they thrive. We are all human. We all face crap in life and it's up to us on what we do with it. Don't allow the circumstances that happen to you to take you down. Rise Up From the Ashes and take your life back. It's up to you and no one else can do that for you. #iamthefire#underdogsrule
The awesome team at FMS Creative came out for some new business branding photos today! So much fun with this crowd!
Fun fact: I met Sue through a networking group which has been the source of some of best people in my life now! I also did some work as a Graphic Designer on contract for FMS while I was just getting my full time photography business off the ground.
You never know who you meet and where they will take you. <3
