What makes you feel beautiful?
If there is anything that I have learned (and continue to learn) over the years its that you can’t give anything if you aren’t also investing in YOU. Maybe you are sitting there reading this and you might not be in the same shoes as me. However, you can’t love others well if you aren’t filling yourself up and putting your self at the top of your priority list. Self-care is so important!
So how are you taking care of yourself and making sure that you are filled up?! I am going to share some of my favorite self-care tips in this post! They are easy and practical ways to make sure you are at your best to be able to love others well.
When you think that you can’t be put back together…
Are you in a place of brokenness? Feeling shattered beyond repair? Are you sitting curled up on your couch wondering why it has to hurt so bad?
I know what that feels like.
I’m there too. I never thought that I would have a failed marriage. I never thought that my life would take this turn. My husband choosing to stop fighting for me was not a thought that ever crossed my mind. But here I am walking through those thoughts that I never believed could be my reality.
A princess, thats what my daddy always said that I was. A princess is how he always said that I should be treated. This was the title that my sister and I both were given from the time we were little. “You’re my Princesses” he would whisper in our ears after our prayers at night.
A little girl in a big dress, living in a castle. My mind drifting off into sleep I would dream of the King who loved his people adored his Queen and who honored his princesses. A land with knights coming to whisk me off of my feet and take me on wild adventures or a prince who would take me to the ball and dance with me until our feet were blistered. In this world, the King protected me within those walls and no harm would ever come to me or my sister.
I feel like it is the hardest thing ever to workout and pursue fitness when it is cold and dark out. Anybody with me? It is no fun waking up to pitch black and freezing at 5 am… Fitness has become a part of my lifestyle. I feel best when I am working my body and eating well. I am going to share a few tips on how I have made it a habit.
A Mini-Moon! A couples adventure
SO, Aaron and I didn’t take a honey moon and we probably won’t end up taking one honestly…. We are putting our wedding money and the gifts that we are given toward other opportunities to travel as a family and to a house! With that said, we took a little trip to Taos right before Christmas to get away just the two of us! We hadn’t ever done a trip that was just the two of us and man was it so fun! We both love to explore and see new things… and if it has to do with the outdoors then he is ALL IN.
Mom Always Knew Best
Growing up I remember my mom being called a hippie. Because she wanted to shop organic and use all natural products in the home people thought she was an oddball. I have always followed here footsteps and wanted to be healthy and find the most natural products that I can. However, now that I have a home of my own and a family to keep safe I have started researching more about the little things that I had never thought twice about.
Christmas is Coming!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. CHRISTMAS TIME!!!! I know that I was told a million times as I got older that Christmas is better when you have kids because you get to relive all the magic of the season and I 100% agree. It is SO. MUCH. FUN. We have been adding and making up new Christmas traditions for our little family. Christmas lights, movie nights, gingerbread villages, and going to Christmas tree lots to name a few!
