Why do I have to buy supplies for the whole classroom when they are going to sit in the closet for the whole damn year... What happened to educational funding teachers and parents shouldn’t have to pay for anything except what’s good for their children. We already pay school fees what are those for?!
“Knowing who you are is hard; it’s hard! So give yourself a break. Eliminate who you are not first, and you are going to find yourself where you need to be” • These wise words were spoken by one of the most talented humans; and I can’t tell you how much this hit home. You see, I’ve spent my whole life trying to figure out who I am and everyday I learn a little bit more about myself. Honestly - most days, I still don’t know and I’d be lying if I did! But what I do know is that I’m here with purpose; I’m here to do great things and serve others in any way possible. So as I sit here and write this, I hope that I’m serving someone today. Because it’s okay if you don’t know who you are today. There’s always tomorrow to figure it out🌵
The truth is, a few years ago I felt lost and lonely in my role of “just a mum”. I use to live in a suit, I pursued a career in the corporate world, I thrived and lived for it. But that life became harder and harder with each child, so I became a stay at home mum when baby no.4 was 3 years old. Feeling so grateful in my new role, I threw myself into it. But in my pursuit of being “the best” mum, I lost my own identity along the way. The process was slow but I had faded away from myself, my interests and my passions without even realising it was happening. When I woke up to myself 3 and realised; if I’ve done my job right, one day all my children will move on as independent thriving adults. Who will I be then... 🌸 In the meantime, I found myself accidentally in business. I was looking for a way to get the cheapest price for something I loved and 💥BAM💥 I had customers lining up and other Mums wanting to be brand ambassadors too. Not long into opening for business, I found 23 year old Christina, the one that was so sure of herself and so certain of her potential and worthiness for the world she was going to create for her future family. I found HER but this time, I had 20 years of life experience and wisdom to take her enthusiasm and passion to impact others along the way and create a ripple effect that will go globally. The confidence I have today as a woman is hand on heart the greatest gift I’ve ever been given by working alongside a community of empowering women with a common goal. If you want personal growth, become your own boss. This business has given me the space to change and grow and I don’t know if I could’ve found that in any other space. 🍃 I thought putting my needs and wants first meant taking away time and effort from my children, but to see and hear how proud of me they are and how their faces light up when I’m in my element inspiring others, oh my soul, I know I’ve finally done right by them. I live with passion every
Turning 23 in 5 days and I’m committing to being fully present in my day to day life. I’ve been so hectic and stressed lately working my 9-5 and trying to build my blog that I’ve started to neglect the little things that truly make life magical. And tbh it’s starting to have an effect on my mental state. I started doubting myself and wondering if I’m capable of achieving my goals... And then I remembered who the f*ck I am. We all feel failure. We all ask WHY ME and WHY NOT ME when we feel this failure. But it’s a blessing in disguise, for without failure, we cannot rise above. And trust me, it’s hard to grow a business, it’s tiring, it’s confusing. And it’s even worse when you don’t feel supported. But a light switched when I realized that those limitations were just walls I have built up inside of myself. These self-inflicted limitations are manufactured and not real. So for all the people that think they can’t do it or they won’t make it, just realize that your own limitations are the only things holding you back. Have the courage to push past your limits. And most importantly, do it for yourself. You’re worth it, and this life is only so finite. _______________________________________ #cherrygarcia#makingmoments#bossbabe#bossbabequotes#thegoodquote#iamhertribe#beinghuman#wordswithqueens#wordstoliveby

Do-nut you just love FRIDAYS!! 🍩 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For a long time Fridays have been my most unproductive day of the working week.😅 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I was in corporate I'd often work from the office, simply so when I'd had enough of trying to focus, I could distract those around me.. just like when I was back at school!😈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now that I work from home & don't have anyone to distract other than myself, I schedule it as a day off. 🥂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This way I am super motivated to get all of those 'to do list' items completed, instead of forcing myself to focus on things when I know I'm not in my prime!👸🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On today's agenda, (you guessed it) DONUTS! I figure, why not celebrate with one of my fave foods 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's your fave way to spend your Fri-YAY? 💆🏻♀️
Gratitude opens the door up to all the best life has for you 💃 ・・・ Brilliance from @millionaire_mentor - Gratitude is a practice that can bring so much inner peace and #happiness. when we focus on what we are grateful for, it puts our daily dramas into perspective and releases stress immediately. When your attention is directed towards something positive, it’s not getting caught up in the negative! Simple! How often do you focus on what you are grateful for? Doesn’t it make you feel good when you do take the time to acknowledge all your #blessings? it’s easy to fall into a state of worry and let those anxious thoughts dominate our mind. That’s why we must practice our #gratitude muscle everyday, so it becomes an automatic reflex to shift our mindset towards the positive when we fall into the negative. 😉 - #millionairementor
The top 3 myths about Pinterest- BUSTED! 1.Pinterest Is a Women’s Platform Up until last year, I would have said yes to the myth that Pinterest is a woman’s platform, as the previously known statistic about Pinterest was that 80% of users were female. However, the tides are turning for Pinterest. Now the platform reports a user base that measures roughly 60% female and 40% male. Pinterest uses machine learning to deliver a great user experience and show you the kind of content that you have expressed interest in. If you sign up as a male, the “Pinterest machine” offers suggestions for interest lists to follow that cater more to men’s interests. 2.Pinterest Is for Recipes and Weddings Some people like to write off using Pinterest for their business because it is “only good for recipes and wedding planning.” While recipes make up 50% of the content on Pinterest, the other 50% of searches consist of a whole range of things, including but certainly not limited to travel, DIY crafts, collectibles, beauty, fashion, fitness, diet, and tons more. Anyone searching for solutions to their problems will be looking on Pinterest, so virtually any business can consider investing in a marketing plan on Pinterest. 3. Pinterest Doesn’t Bring Traction I’ve heard over and over again how people “tried Pinterest for a month” and quit because it didn’t generate traffic or ROI for their business. The truth is, Pinterest can bring traffic to your online business. BUT, it isn’t the place for overnight success. It takes time and strategy. Since Pinterest operates using machine learning, you need to teach it that you are a reliable, high-quality source of information that appeals to your audience.
