  • The angling community is one of the strongest I’ve been a part of, but then again, we are still human, and humans have their flaws. I feel it. I’ve felt it from close friends, from fellow anglers, from peers, and sadly from other women in this sport. The lack of support, the jealousy and the animosity that goes hand in hand with a little success in life. Sometimes I feel as if social media has subtly created this imaginary stage where we come to boast and put our accomplishments up against the rest of the internet world, dragging each other down as we fight for more attention, more likes or what have you. And that isn’t how this should be. That isn’t how we should be, and the cold, disgruntled behavior that smolders the fire we’ve worked hard to ignite is an ever-going problem. So I would encourage you all.... be happy for one another. Learn to root for one another. Lift each other up and take part in the celebrating. Work on more congratulating and less back door gossip. This doesn’t have to be a competition, we are a community. Thank you so much to all of you who continually encourage and support me in my endeavors, it means the world.

  • Missing 2.5 weeks of working out because of work is not advised! Jesus! 39 minute bridge 🏃‍♀️ not bad considering I haven’t ran it in two years. Now a round of CrossFit that will surely kick my ass! #exercise #encourage #crossfitgirls #sidneylanierbridge

  • It’s hard to believe that this was almost a year ago. 1 year ago, I decided to do something brave. I put the “what if’s” behind me and decided to open my own boutique with @matildajaneclothing — a decision that changed my life forever. I’ve taken all-expense paid trips, earned top awards, celebrated two promotions, have been wined and dined by the CEO, hung out with our designer, spoken on stages—but, none of that compares to my daughters smiles as she helps mama work, her twirling and dancing in her new dresses, being able to give to organizations around the world to make a difference, meeting some of my best friends that encourage me daily, the gratitude I feel as I pay off debt, seeing other women on my team succeeding and living their best lives— the list goes on. This job is a gift. One that I hold close to my heart. Do something that scares you, friends. Turn your “what if’s” into “why not’s” and change your life forever.💖 #matildajane #liveyourbestlife #family

  • I have talked to a lot of people lately about accountability..... about how to start something and stick with it🤘🏼 You know what keeps me the most accountable?? You know what helps me stick to committing to myself and my health and wellbeing??🤷🏼‍♀️ Being a health and fitness coach. It keeps me going even on those hard days when I want to give up. How can I expect the ladies I am supporting to do hard things if I don’t show up and do those hard things? I am so thankful that I jumped into this opportunity when I did. It has been the ultimate accountability that I have needed🙏🏼❤️ #day4done #stronger #accountabilityworks

  • Never forget how fearfully & wonderfully made you are! You were a special order! No one can ever duplicate you! Well, they can try but you’re the original! Remember, copies fade! So let’s embrace who God created us to be. He never makes mistakes! You are perfectly imperfect. ❤️🤗 #encourage #encourageothers #encouragement #inspire #inspireothers #inspiration

  • PATH OF BEAUTY ✨ FOCUS ON BEAUTY ✨ Since I can remember I have not understood living here—here on Earth. For all of the amazing and fearless leaps I in people and myself there’s continued leaps to be made. This is changing~we are all shifting this. Love and my people cracking themselves open to love is what has made me feel at home - The quieter places where I’ve accepted myself have, in time, become the truth, specifically around using my voice. This season has brought up wild truths about intimacy, money, what I say and what shows up (and the difference) and authenticity. Truth has become my vehicle, in a way. It’s like I am choosing my handle bars. Walking on this path of energy healer means looking fir the lessons being presented, learning from them, observing the truths, listening, questioning, and focusing on creating new beauty and dreams. Thank you to all of you for reading~ because I need encouragement after the leaps and continued death from 2018. I stand with the brave people showing up in session and in group healing, people striking, taking office, and standing up for the Earth and human evolution into love -because while it starts at home these folks have healed their voices to bring about change. Type YES if you are here and want more raw posting~and to see more ~ and I love you ✨

  • Some reminders (for your ♥️+🧠) . 1. You are enough. (There’s a difference between room to grow & worthiness. There’s always room, but your worthiness, your value, is set in stone...immovable, & established.) 2. Your story isn’t finished. (Whatever feels like an ending is a chapter, whatever feels like a period is just a comma.) 3. What you’re planting & who you’re being in the unseen places matters to God. (There are no “behind the curtain” parts of our lives to him — it’s all out there.) 4. You have what it takes to accomplish your goals. (If you feel you don’t, lean into that to see if it’s the truth or just a feeling. If it’s true, ask for help, because your goals matter too much to be tossed.) 5. There is no beauty standard. You are beautiful because you are YOU & no one else is. (Don’t think so? Put your phone away & start thanking your body for all it does. Get outta your sweat pants & put some lipstick on. Read Psalm 139. Your thoughts are not passive, they have control over your actions and beliefs in real time, so get them in check.) 6. Today can be different. (Live intentionally, put on the joy of the Lord, lift up the hearts of those around you, go the extra mile, don’t stop til you’re proud, listen to your favorite music & smile. Life is hard, but man, we make it harder.) 7. Remember your why. (When everyone else’s life, ministry, marriage, etc. seems to sparkle & yours seems in-process, insignificant, tough to carry...remember your why. Stop comparing (steals joy), & remember what metrics matter to God. Whatever we deem impressive usually isn’t. Just keep doing your best with what’s in your hand.) 8. You don’t have to. (Don’t give into the lie that you have to show up for people in a way that is inauthentic to you or draining on your life. What we say no to directly impacts what we can say yes to & God never asked us to be people-pleasers or overachievers, just good stewards & people of peace.) 9. It’s time to release. (What you can’t control, the tension you’re holding in your body right now, the fear for the future, the opinions of others, & those unrealistic expectations you put on yourself. Let go.) 10. You’re loved. (10000%, no matter what.)

  • The mind is crazy thing. It can convince you in two seconds whether you’re going to chase your dreams or hide under rock. All in a single thought! 💭 Our minds hold the power to change an outlook in a drastic way. It has power to create the first step in change or the continual motion of repetition. 💭 No matter the situation or topic YOU have the power to create our thought. YOU have the power to think positively or negatively. Either choice has major consequences. Which will you choose? 💭 I choose and will continue to choose the positive path. I’ve been through enough in life to take the negative train, but what good would that have been? Absolutely nothing! The positive path has given me the ability to be #UNST❤️PPABLE and to empower others to do the same! 💭 I encourage you to stop and reflect on the path your thoughts go...all it takes is one thought to change an entire day, year, and life! . . . #positivity #empower #momblog #nurseblog #momoftwo #strongmom #instablog #thought #blogfitness #model #ambassador #mom #nebraska #help #pacemaker #heart #allheart #midwestblog #modelscout #hope #encourage #payitforward

  • I’ll be honest: I thought the idea of a “word of the year” sounded kind of...silly. . But, maybe that’s just because I don’t have the gift of brevity in my words. (Those of you who do: what a gift! I can’t relate.) . And then I got peer pressured into getting #powersheets. (Honestly, it didn’t take that much of a twist of the arm. They are GORGEOUS. When I got them in the mail, it was basically like receiving a hug in a box.) I knew the “word of the year” was going to be an assignment in them, but I assumed I’d probably skip that one. . And then after working through all the prior sections, I got to it, and after I had done all that heavy-lifting heart-work, I literally wrote down one word without giving it much thought and immediately thought, “Ohmigosh. That’s my word!” . I have lots and lots of reasons for it (naturally, for someone who always wants to over-explain everything, right?), but to sum it up, my absolute favorite people to be around (and those I admire most) can be easily defined by their encouraging nature. And I wanna be that. . So, here’s to 2019, and reminding myself that I want to encourage the heck outta people this year. Just call me wannabe-Barnabas! Just kidding. But, I’ll need lots of reminders about being encouraging this year. 🤪 . If you have a Word of the Year, what did ya choose & why?! . PS - seriously, @laracasey & the CWM team...AWESOME JOB. I’m a PowerSheets newbie and total convert now. . #cultivatewhatmatters #2019 #gracegoals #encourage

  • A few things 2019 has taught me already:⁣ ⁣ When you say YES, God will provide!⁣ ⁣ If there is something you are wanting to ask, ask! You just may like the answer! But you’ll never get an answer, if you don’t ask! ⁣ ⁣ Taking a leap of faith has proven to be exciting and a reminder that God is always faithful. EVERY. TIME.⁣ ⁣ Change is a lot easier once you get used to it.⁣ ⁣ Life’s twists and turns can lead you to beautiful places. ⁣ ⁣ His timing is the best timing! ⁣ ⁣ Sometimes you won’t know how things will work out, but I don’t think we’re supposed to! ⁣ ⁣ When I prayed for the new year to bring new opportunities, I didn’t realize they would come so fast!⁣ ⁣ A thankful heart, is a happy heart.⁣ ⁣ Good things can be hard things. Good things can bring growing pains. But good things are good things! ⁣ ⁣ If you feel like you have no idea what you’re doing, here is a little reassurance for your soul... none of us do!⁣
