This weekend I went to dinner with one of my friends. We sat at the bar which was a first for me because I don’t drink, but the wait time was significantly shorter. After we ordered our food and finished our meal the bartender leaned over and started making small talk. Suddenly he yells out, “Can someone get this girl a megaphone?!” Then he laughed and noted “you talk so quiet!” I know it was meant to be a joke but I was so embarrassed in the moment my head dropped involuntarily to hide my blushing cheeks. 🙈 My friend immediately knew what was going through my brain, looked at me, shrugged and said “so what”. I’ve always been quiet and it’s been something I’ve been self-conscious of since I was little. But hearing that shot a wave of empowerment through my veins. So now I’m going to say it to you...so what? Maybe you’re quiet like me...or maybe you’ve been told you’re “too loud”. Maybe someone has said your style is weird or you’re too passionate about something. So what? 🤷🏽‍♀️ You were made the way you are to fill a void that this world wouldn’t have without you. So do us all a favor and shrug off the voices. Be exactly who you are and never ever feel ashamed of those beautiful pieces that are you. ♥️

Fairytales don’t tell children that dragons are real. Children already know they exist. Fairytales tell children that dragons can be killed. 🍂🍁 Shout out to @francoherrera_images for the awesome pictures! I was so nervous but he did an amazing job making me feel comfortable...even when it was practically -24 degrees. ♥️

What is the scariest thing you’ve ever made yourself do? My first outdoor triathlon I freaked out. I have been swimming all my life, I’ve swam in lakes, oceans and pools all across the country and a fear of the water has never been something I’ve struggled with. But that freezing Saturday morning triathlon started in a small, foggy, man-made lake. The entire swim was nothing more than a mile and the course was marked by large yellow and red buoys with the finish hiding just behind the tree line. But for some irrational reason those couple minutes before jumping in I was more scared then I had ever been. My heart seemed to be beating out of my ears and every muscle in my body felt like jello. I remember stepping in the water and feeling my toes go numb with cold. The tears filled my goggles as I imagined all the slimy creatures just waiting for me to make my entrance. The fog horn blew echoing across the misty water and I swam faster that morning than I ever have in my life. I could’ve sworn I felt an octopus grab my finger...but I survived. 🐙Since then, whenever I am scared to do something I think back to that moment, when my stomach was in knots and I had to empty my goggles of tears before I even got wet, I remember what it was that got me in the water. I just kept thinking, “the finish is right over there”. So this Monday, whatever it is you're scared to do at this moment just remember, even if you can’t see the finish, it’s just right around the corner. All you have to do is jump in and power through. Soon enough you’ll look back stronger, smarter and braver. If there’s anyone that can handle it...it’s you. 😘 ps...that’s not what’s happening in the picture 😉

Her face hits the stone, terror shakes her every bone. She can’t, can’t be alone. The letter in her hand, holding his gold wedding band, drenched in tears. Words on a page holding her deepest fears. She screams cause her sobbing isn’t enough. Nobody said love would be this tough. Is this letter supposed to amend? Is she just to go on and pretend that one day he’ll walk around the bend? Unanswered questions left in her head, all those promises he had said. He’s such a liar! said he’d be there through wind and fire…but it’s not his fault, it’s those who sent them on the assault. Those good for nothing, selfish men! Didn’t they know he had a family who said amen before every meal as they prayed for him? How could they send him out on a whim? But, they were just obeying orders…so then who is to blame? Is it her for letting him go? As she holds his folded flag and his last letters in his military bag, as the last shots sound her answer is found. The answer he would have wanted her to see. He fought so she and the baby could be free. He wouldn’t want her to blame or hate. Respect what he did for her and even those behind the jail gate. He was brave and strong, now it’s her turn to carry on his brave acts and silent return. To pick up his flag and hold his baby’s hand, for united we stand. 🇺🇸 Happy Veterans Day to all our military and their families. You are always in our prayers 🙏🏽

She's putting on her lipstick, turning up the music, slippin' on her black dress, saying you can do this. Climbing in the front seat, looking out the window going through the motions, trying just to let go. Of the tears that she cried, no solid goodbye, tonight it ain't gonna show. And even though she knows that it ain't gonna fix it, she's putting on her lipstick. 🖤 dan & shay Moving on has never sounded so elegant. 🎶

Yesterday at practice I had 13 kids between the ages of 6 and 10 in two lanes. To say it was mass chaos is an understatement. It was almost impossible to get a word in between the massive waves of chlorinated water being splashed out of the pool and the feet balancing on top of the water while they practice their handstands. The more strict I got the more creative their endeavors became. It is amazing how when one kid decides they need to go to the bathroom, suddenly the rest realize they are in dire need to potty dance and beg to follow. Finally I took a breath and looked at what I was really dealing with. A 9 year-old girl who only sees her best friend on Wednesdays at practice. A little boy with skinned knees and a story that gets more graphic each time it’s told. His buddy who lives to race. A girl who just can’t handle the water in her ear and her brother who finds himself lost in an underwater world of superheroes and sharks at all times. That made me smile. These weren't bad, disrespectful kids...they’re just living in their moment and being little. It reminded me that even though we grow up we still have the same tendencies. We may not find ourselves lost underwater worlds, or think that displacing all the water in the pool is a fun activity. But we all have our own universe and each of them is uniquely unparalleled. Whether it’s the girl jamming out in the car next to you, the guy with the funny hair at the store, the old man with his grumpy stare, or the lady at work who posts duck-face selfies every 8 minutes. We are all a little different, and equally special. If we can learn to see and appreciate each person as the individual they are, I think we'll find ourselves smiling a whole lot more. 🌿😘

My dad used to always say “don’t keep saying you’re sorry, fix it.” At the time it made sense, but now I realize how right he was. Saying “I’m sorry” over and over again after making the same “mistake” asking for someone to forgive you is really just asking them to overlook the fact that you’ve been ignoring their feelings. It’s completely unfair because not only have you hurt them, you’ve also ignored their feelings AND your asking them to get over it. I am guilty of this and I didn’t realize how badly it hurt until it was done to me. I am here both as an offender and a recipient to tell you that if you are in a relationship where your feelings are being ignored and you’re constantly asked to accept an apology...you don’t have to. By all means, forgive. I cannot be more grateful to those who choose to love me despite my lack of thoughtfulness. But enough is enough. It is okay to say “no more”. To forgive, but walk away. So sweetheart, be strong, understand we all make mistakes. But you don’t deserve to be walked on. Stand up for your heart and be brave enough to say “no more”.

Hey y’all! I just created an Instagram pod with my awesome cousin @bekah.w8 💕 For those of you who don’t know, an Instagram “pod” is a group of people with similar interests who like and comment on each other’s posts. This helps your IG engagement go up and gets your photo recognized via IG’s new algorithm. But more than that I am hoping this group will be an outlet of positivity. A place people know they are surrounded by other instagramers across the country who love and support them. And my dream is that this group of men and women will help spread encourage across this amazing social media platform. 💪🏽 So if you’re passionate about what you do and love to listen and help others achieve their goal, or if you just need to know someone cares DM me or Bekah and we will give you all the info you need. ❤️

My word when did he get so big? He went from my cute, sleepy, soft, content puppy to a teenager overnight! 😯 Now he sleeps till noon and stays up till 2am, eats like it’s going out of style and groans anytime I ask him to do something he doesn’t care for. 😑 His newest past time is hiding contraband under pillows. Anything from slobbery tennis balls and bones to super smooshed crickets he found outside and somehow snuck in. 🤦🏽‍♀️ Does your dog hide stuff or is it just mine? 🎾🍖🐾

A lot of painful secrets that have been locked away are being shared for the first time thanks to the #MeToo movement. There are no words to express the hurt the stories recall, the absence of reason and the haunting aftermath each person had endured. It has taken every strand of will power I possess to swallow the burning lump in my throat but I can't anymore. • My heart is shattered for these broken people because I am one of these many few. I understand the pain, all of the empty distress and suffering that follows. The nightmares and the constant fear of looking over your shoulder. The nagging tears that just won't stop. The insistent mistrust and the lack of words to explain the aching trauma echoing in every muscle. • But now there is a innate strength building. In reading the words from person after person I began to feel heavier than I ever have in my life, knowing the burden that is on their hearts. But I also have found a spark of courage. You see, each brave man and woman that has spoken out has added their voice to the void. One-by-one filling a space that is so often deflected. Now we stand surrounded by our friends, teachers, co-workers, teammates, family members, and although we are all hurting...the void is suddenly not so empty. Our stories are heard. Even though it doesn't change our physical world, the aloneness that once inflicted our daily lives is now comforted by those we love AND those who understand exactly what you're going through. • Once again it is being proved that we are far stronger together than we can pretend to be on our own. So darling, keep your head up and remember, if your void ever beings to feel empty I'm here for you. I understand. And I will fight for you when you don't think you can. ❤️💚💙💜

The lights go out and it's just you. Take a breath and feel the solitude fill your lungs. You're okay. Don't shut you out. Don't feel empty. You're here, let your heart swell with comfort in your solidarity. No more hiding behind laughter, friends and worldly possessions. This is you and you are beautiful. You are raw and unfiltered. You are original. Breathe again. You're not lonely, you're alone with yourself and you darling are enough. 💜
