First day back at work! I’ve been met with so much sympathy when I’ve told people it’s time to go back 😂, but I really don’t feel that I need it! I know that this can be a really tough time for parents, but I am in a really fortunate position: 👍🏻 I really like what I do 👍🏻 I really like the people that I work with (you know who you are, I’ve said it publicly, I like you guys 😂) 👍🏻 I am able to go back part time, because of the extra money that I’m making on the side (and because my boss is cool with it) 👍🏻 I don’t work far from home, apart from the occasional trip 👍🏻 Childcare is not a worry - thanks Mum! . Also, I get the chance of a hot cuppa and to sit down without being asked to get up again straight away - yay! . To any other parents going back today, or even just going back after the weekend - hold on tight, you’ve got this 💪🏻
For a long time doing anything new terrified me. Even when I got up the courage to try something new, I was still just too intimidated by the thought of giving my all to it and failing at it. This caused me to just half-ass anything new because at least I could say I didn’t really even try to be good at it when I failed. I had so little faith in myself. - Then I thought, what if? What if I started something and gave it my all? What if I took that chance and went all in and failed? - But what if I didn’t? - Before I started my R+F business, I kept telling myself I’m terrible at this, I really have no business joining. I thought about it for weeks, even months. Now, the only regret I have is not joining sooner! I was too busy doubting myself, but I kept seeing this scripture Isaiah 43:19, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Then I remembered that one thing I had never done was ask HIM for help. HE is a game changer. 😉 . . #motivation#change#evolve#help#rodanandfields#business#momlife#noregrets#takeachance#leapoffaith#prosperity#community#faith#jesus#family#pray
Do you ever meet those people that you know just get you? They see you, all the way down to your core, and appreciate you for exactly as you are? . These women definitely fall into that category for me. 💖💖💖 . I was so happy to meet three of them in person a couple months ago after 9 months of talking online. (I met Shannon @shann.sweet about 18 years ago and we've been friends ever since.) We work out virtually together, we support each other through tough times and celebrate victories in one another's lives. . It seems strange to think that if I didn't say yes to my little side hustle 3 years ago, I would not have met them. I am so glad I took that 🌟leap of faith🌟 and said yes to what has become my passion, and a way to fill my soul in a way I never thought possible. 💫 . Do you have that girl gang, that close-knit tribe of women who will walk through life with you, support you and care about you and be as invested in your success as you are? Does this sound exactly like what you've been looking for? . I am looking for 5 women who are interested in improving their own health and fitness while helping others with theirs, are willing to put in the work to reach their goals and are coachable. Do you want to set your own schedule and connect with a network of badass women who are killing it and want to help you do the same? Are you a bit weird and want to hang out with other weirdos? 😄 Drop an emoji or comment below and I'll message you with more info! I'd love to have you join us! . #whynotyou#takeachance#30somethingmom#sidehustle#ormore

“He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.” - Psalm 11:7 I was terrified of the diving board as a little kid. I was always the “nervous Nancy” who wanted to plan for safety before I did anything reckless. This was true from riding my bike down huge hills, walking on frozen ponds to even climbing wooden steps to my friend’s tree house. I was worried about what could happen and focused on the worst-case scenario. By doing that, I stopped myself from having fun. Most of us are scared of diving into the unknown or unfamiliarity of not knowing what’s going to happen. We are scared that things could go wrong, that things will be uncomfortable, and that things might not go as expected. But throwing yourself into the unknown can be very rewarding. It means that you fully surrender to all expectations that you and others have ever had of yourself. It means that you allow yourself to start anew. 👍🏻 Jumping into the great unknown can teach you about who you are, make you feel whole, will teach you to be fearless and ultimately will lead to greater faith and strength. There are a lot of things in life that will not make sense or it will leave you to worry about the future. Do not be the nervous kid on the diving board afraid to make the jump and enjoy the pool. If you trust God, it really does not matter what you don't see or understand. Life changes, disappointments and problems we face will be hard, and possibly different than what we imagined for our lives but it’s always better to have faith, take risks, and enjoy the adventure, even if you are scared. You might be surprised at how much you learn and love the new adventure. What was the best adventure you have ever found yourself taking? What did you learn? PC: @ameliablaire_photo
She is one of my WHYs! 💚It’s always such a great feeling to be home after a trip - but I do know it’s also important to make these short term sacrifices and not to turn your WHY into WHY not! Many work this business to have flexibility with their schedules to ultimately have more time with their kids (me included!) but occasionally we do have to sacrifice time to learn how to grow our businesses, ourselves, and our hearts for others! I do love my time with my Arbonne sisters as well! • This picture was from last week on a random Starbucks date I had with my daughter at 10am on a Tuesday! I will forever be thankful for these moments! 💚 • If you have something on your heart you have been desiring to go after don’t let the reason you want it to work, be the reason you aren’t doing it. For example, you want to grow your business for more time freedom but you feel too busy! You want more time with your kids but you don’t want to give up time with your kids to build towards your dreams. You want more money, but don’t feel like you have enough to start! You have what it takes, believe YOU are enough! • If the WHY is big enough the HOW will happen! Find those you can support you and lead you and go after it! 💚 #fitgreenmama_ #mompreneur#arbonne#builditbig#dreambig#leader#influencer#healthandwellness#takeachance#why#whynot#work#sacrifice#personaldevelopment#family#mommynme#encouragement#entrepreneur#pureimpact2019
F ya. It’s #soulsunday babes! This IS Everything to me. I only want the things and people I am passionate about!! Too much #energy can be wasted on the wrong places, and faces. I know it feels too risky to head into the unknowns, but if you #believe it, you can #achieve it. I am getting real used to being comfortable, with the UNcomfortable. Yes, it may be scary but, maybe...just maybe, it will be the best damn ride of my life; so it’s worth the time to get on the other side of it. I hope this message speaks to you on the deepest level, and shakes you to the core. I want it to make you think about your dreams again, and start fantasizing about new realities that you can create and attract your into your life!! Listen, to my heart. We got one shot at this thing , there are no do overs, so let’s lean the F in, and act like we mean it!
Saw this at Costco the other day and I was immediately transported back to my childhood I had to buy one for a birthday gift. 🎂🎁 Honestly I wanted to keep it for myself but figured it was better off with the children. When it was opened and put together I was a bit thrown off. Where was the big bulky thing I was used to? Where was the plug?? 🤷♂️ In it's place was a sleek, battery powered unit. My skepticism quickly faded as I saw how compact and portable it is. It even has storage for the little pieces. So yea...it looked different ....but just as effective.👍 Made me think of my fitness journey. I was a gym rat until kids. 💪 When introduced to online home workouts I was super skeptical. I wasn't convinced I would get the same results. I was so used to what was....what I knew as normal for me. Luckily I gave different a chance and haven't looked back!! 💯 Okay....yes I am going back to by more!!😯 #childhoodmemories#changeisgood#litebright#samebutdifferent#takeachance
Starting over in a new city is hard! I’m in the new city while my husband is back home packing up our house and selling it. Being here by myself (for now) is hard! A new job for the first time in 15 years is hard! Trying to stay motivated to keep my business going is hard! What’s even harder is saying forget this, I’m going back to what I know and am comfortable with. I’m not giving up! I’m going to keep going and I will win! You need to pick your hard!
Opportunity is knocking each and every day! Tonight my opportunity is to share my story and hope that it inspires someone! If it only touches one person then it was worth it. I get the chance to impact other people every day because of an opportunity I took over 5 years ago. I was looking for weight loss- period. I found some nice plant based supplements and ASSUMED they weren't healthy (so glad I didn't let my assumption block my judgement). I investigated and found that they were actually GOOD for me and safe so what did I have to lose?? I thought I'd take them for a month or so, get over a weight loss plateau and never see them again--- boy was I WRONG!! Because aside from losing the 18lb I had been struggling with, I also lost my chronic fatigue, My erratic blood sugars, my insatiable sweet cravings, my roller coaster mood swings and my life long battle with miserable chronic constipation!!!! PRAISE JESUS!!!! but, that isn't the end of my story----that was actually just the beginning. You see, when you start to change people notice. They start to ask questions, and you naturally share- especially a nurse likes me who is a natural care giver, helper and lover of all the people! Guess what--that sharing came with reward. Generous reward in the form of pay checks that started coming in. At first it was fun money and date nights. YAY!!! Then it was covering bills and paying down a little debt we had. Then it was making the car payment and we kept making it--paying my vehicle off two years early!!!!! Then one day it was enough to cover the mortgage. I still get chills when I think about that! After two years of sharing what I'd found with other people the check came that changed everything. It was more than my monthly full-time nursing salary where I worked HARD 40-50 hours a week in a very rewarding but emotionally draining position. It only took me a sec to allow myself to think what if??? What if I could stay home? What if I could set up our financial future
As I reflect on my weekend, it’s very apparent that when you keep your eyes on the outcome and then overcome a fear or block to get there, you reap the rewards. If you never take a chance or start things and quit when it becomes a little bit too hard or you are tired, then guess what, you will stay exactly where you are. And if you don’t like where you are, then that sucks. But, that is your choice, and your fault at the same time. Be brave, take the opportunity. Reach your goal, you only have to start, you don’t need to worry about the whole process all at once, you just need to start. keep the end result in your minds eye as your final goal, and chip away, one bit at a time until you get there❤️ Choose your pain...stay the same or take a chance ? #cairnspersonaltrainers#takeachance#encorefitnesscairns#goals#fitcampcairns#bootcampcairns
