Eli WilliamsEli Williams2017-11-18Day 5: Joy!! In the midst of whatever we ourselves are/were going through the Lord poured his Joy over us & by the end of our week we had everyone laughing (laughing at us or laughing with us)... but we made them laugh!! So much to process and decisions to be made now that we are home. But I know God is good and this team....was amazing! This captures a bit of our craziness and joy. fab5rebuildteamichoosejoylaughwhileyouworkhttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/23735573_167194863880234_5286250077243834368_n.jpg2017-11-18

Beezy WigginsBeezy Wiggins2017-11-18This is fantastic. Thank you to a friend for sharing this reminder.❤️ Love this analogy. ☕️ You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you or shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere.
Why did you spill the coffee? 🤔 "Well because someone bumped into me, of course!" Wrong answer.
You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup. Had there been tea in the cup, you would have spilled tea. *Whatever is inside the cup, is what will spill out.*
Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which WILL happen), whatever is inside you will come out. It's easy to fake it, until you get rattled. *So we have to ask ourselves... “what's in my cup?"
When life gets tough, what spills over?
Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility?
Or anger, bitterness, harsh words and reactions?
You choose! 💯 whatsinyourcupichoosejoybuildothersuphttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/23507829_491600091196344_6716909241229115392_n.jpg2017-11-18

Leilani Moore #WomeninBusinessLeilani Moore #WomeninBusiness2017-11-18Always stay moving forward manifesting what you want in your life. Goals and dreams. They should be huge. Leveling up. Learning and improving your skills in whatever you want to master. Your thoughts create your future and you need to make those dreams a true reality. One thing is to make sure you have gratitude always. I’m so thankful for all that I have and the amazing influencers that are in my circle. Then get to work and do those actions that will catapult you into that place you want to be. The universe knows what you want so be prepared to receive it. And yes there will be bumps in the road but just like a car that hits a bump on the road, you d’t stop, you just keep going. That’s the same process your journey. Expect some bumps but keep going. gogetitbossbabeichoosejoynextlevelmanifestityourthoughtscreateneverquitentrepreneurbumpsalgthewaybereadyhttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/23596335_852604174920813_4639843995818655744_n.jpg2017-11-18

Jessica Lee HarrisJessica Lee Harris2017-11-18We are all guilty of the dirty talk. No, not that kind of dirty talk 😘. I mean the dirty talk where we basically verbally abuse ourselves, telling ourselves we aren’t enough, our butt isn’t the right size, our work isn’t good, our life isn’t what we think it should be, we aren’t where we want to be. We know exactly how to dish out the meanest of beatings.
I get it; it’s a personal struggle for metoo. Not as much as it used to be, but it’s still present. With a lot of patience + practice I’ve been working on having the itty bitty shitty committee take a seat and listen to me for a change. But sometimes I still willingly take the front and center seat they saved for me at their concert of hate and let the darkness of their lyrics get the best of me.
This past week I’ve been sick and not checking of “the list” as I intended to do. Yesterday the week of what I had NOT completed began to swirl around in my head like leaves blowing in the wind. I started to tell myself those old, mean stories. The hateful music got a little too loud and I decided it was time to leave the concert. Yep, you can do that. You can choose to get up from the ugly seat and change the channel.
My solution was sleep. It was getting late. My mind kept wondering. And I knew that staying at that concert past 10 was only going to mean discontent the following day. I took a hot shower, a little magnesium, inhaled some essential oils, forgave myself for engaging in the negative self talk, and at 9:30 I went to sleep.
This morning I woke up refreshed. Knowing I am right where I need to be. My life is good. And my butt is my butt and it’s not so bad. Sometimes we just need to give ourselves the gift of a fresh start. happymindhappylifeday18imissedday17sowhatiforgivemehttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/23595925_170346263560771_1290440327290683392_n.jpg2017-11-18

What a season, what a wonderful season! 🌿
Service Dog ColtService Dog Colt2017-11-17🛑Janaye Update🛑 Janaye would probably kill me if she knew I was posting this picture. After a little over three days she is off the vent and it seems that her seizures are under control with the hospitals help. Prayers really do matter, thank you, I thought we were gonna loose her, that she would just be another statistic. Not gonna lie I don’t think my eyes can even cry anymore. Thank you all for your prayers, please continue to do so we are not out of the woods yet and the hospital is trying hard to kick us out as soon as possible because of the insurance issue. If we don’t have meds for her when we get home we will be in the same boat all over again, but this time we might not get as lucky. PLEASE donate if you can. Every little bit helps. Colt got to be there when she was extubated so that he was the first things she saw, we tried to record it be we were all crying so hard the phone just ended up being laid down on the bed and you just heard a lot of crying and couching from Janaye. If you want to see it let me know. I am so glad she is back, she is having a little trouble forming words and doing body movement but she will be A OK with your help. saveJanayeloveJanayeThankyouallshesback Edit: damn right this is the ugliest picture I’ve ever seen, thanks a lot for sharing it with thousands of people, well I guess that’s real life, seizures an’t pretty.
