Holding on to my hat as we cruise right into this new week! It’s been a challenging last few days of parenting my boys alone while my hubby is away. SO my focus this week and the message that I’m receiving loud and clear is that I need to remember to fill my cup so I can keep filling theirs! My goal is going to be to get up a little earlier each day so I can spend some quiet (alone) time doing my devotional, getting covered in God’s grace and peace, getting after being grateful, and getting centered mind, body, and soul before the craziness of the each day sets in. I have been forgetting that I can’t pour from an empty cup and God has reminded me that over and over today. I’m counting on you to hold me accountable this week to stick to this or better yet join me and let’s see together just how different our weeks will go! . Ps. This doesn’t have to just be for mommas either, you can’t keep giving to anyone else whether that’s a significant other, family member, coworker, friend unless you make sure you’re taking care of you first. So if you just want to have more gratitude for life and more peace everyday, join me by starting each day this week focusing on filling your cup! . . . . . . . . #motherhoodunplugged #getaftergrateful #livewell #liveauthentic #beyou #graceupongrace #godspeace #fitmom #strongmom #boymom #stepmom #youcantpourfromanemptycup #fillmycup #motherofboys #raisingtinyhumans #stayathomemom #wahm #smilemore #toddlerhood

REPEAT AFTER ME : Self-care is NOT selfish ! It's actually quite important. You know how does the old saying go . " You can't pour from an empty cup" You must give back not only to you but your body. It needs love , it gives you so much on a daily basis . If you neglect your body it will neglect you when you get older. If you need some self - care I have a few appointments available tomorrow for a Massage or Facial starting at 5:30 . . . . . #Tallahassee #TallahasseeSpa #TallahasseeSalon #TallahasseMassageTherapist #Facials #Sel#SelfCaretSelfish #SelfCare #TakeCareOfYou #youcantpourfromanemptycup urFromAnEmptyCup #appointmentsavailable #FSU #FAMU #TCC #Lively

One of the most toxic-to-me tendencies I have is to overlook, downplay, or otherwise set aside the bad, vile, destructive, and/or dislikable in someone because I chose to see them for what they could be × Far too true far too much and far too many times for me... ¬ Sometimes it sucks hardcore being able to so easily see what all someone could really be 😵 × × #reformatted #NotAPerfectQuote #paraphrase #OneOfTheWorst #toxic #ToxicTendencies #ToxicTendency #overlook #OverlookingTheObvious #downplay #ignoringWhatShouldntBe #bad #vile #destructive #dislikable #inHumanBeings #WeAllHaveOurissues #DoesntMeanWeCantBeDiscerning #GoodLoveShouldNeverBeBlind #RealLoveStillCanBe #LifeLessons #LivingNLearning #everyday #EveryFuckingDay #TakeCareOfYourselfToo #YouCantPourFromAnEmptyCup #WordPorn × × × Source: @wordporm

This quote really resonated with me. I'm almost always last on my list, but even on an airplane they tell you to take care of your mask first in an emergency, and then your child's. Because you can't help them if you don't take care of yourself. #youcantpourfromanemptycup Tonight's dinner was a hodgepodge of things, guacamole, bean burritos, and string cheese. Definitely a crossover, but something I needed tonight. I'm hoping to go to bed early with a good book and take it easy #thm #trimhealthymama #thmsimplified #simpleandpracticalthm #thmblogger #prairiefaithandpracticalities #thmforlife #thmonabudget #thmfamilyfriendly #thmfoodie #drivethrusue #puristwannabe #thmcertifiedcoach #thmcoach

THIS revelation or aha moment happened one morning during a walk several months ago. I stumbled onto a book by @msrachelhollis, who within 30 minutes had my head spinning from all the truth and challenge she was speaking into my ears! Something clicked like never before. WHAT would happen IF I kept this promise I made to myself of walking for 30 minutes EVERY 👏🏻DAY👏🏻???🤔 Well, I continue to keep this promise to myself &&& along with a few other healthy choices have lost twenty two pounds so far❣️🥰 While I’m happy with the weight loss; I have submitted to not working toward numbers on a scale or sewn into clothing. Instead, I’m more happy with the paradigm shift in my thinking as well as the positive energy I’m attracting and modeling for my family. I’d love to hear about the promises to yourself that you’re keeping. 😊 #girlwashyourface #whatif #selfcare #selflove #paradigmshift #promisekeeper #onedayordayone #madeformore #youcantpourfromanemptycup #putyouroxygenmaskonfirst

Had a rather rough day, but thank goodness I feel so much better now. I went to the Dr this morning and all is well with my bloodwork. My iron is a little lower than last year so she wants me to take an iron supplement once a week, eat right, cut my coffee consumption 😑and take care of myself from here on out!! I had extreme fatigueness, severe headache and just couldn’t hold my head up today. Rested for 4 hours and I feel so much better. I truly have been burning the candle at both ends and I’ve got to make changes. Tonight the Dr (me) ordered some pampering..think orange citrus, a skin stick for my head to soothe loaded with peppermint and Shea, hot lemon and ginger tea, and a detoxing face mask. Total relaxation mind, body and soul! ♥️What do you do to relax when your body is screaming at you to take care of yourself?♥️ #selfcare #mindbodysoul #takecareofyourself #youcantpourfromanemptycup #naturalbased #pamperingtime #hottea #perfectlyposh #brandnewme ♥️☕️
