Acceptance And Blackberry Essence

ACCEPTANCE

“Acceptance and tolerance and forgiveness, those are life-altering lessons.”
-Jessica Lange”

Life throws curveballs. It’s up to you to determine what you plan to accept and what you plan to hit back. I was born and raised in Humboldt, TN about 30 minutes from Memphis, TN. I grew up in a trailer with my 2 brothers and sister. My parents worked hard to get us off powdered milk and the helping hand and when I was 8 years old we moved into a house. Seeing my parents’ work ethic and learning the true value of a dollar at a young age developed the will and determination I have to achieve my goals and make a difference in the world today.

I’m extremely grateful for my family and the struggles I had during my childhood that inspired me to always follow my heart and listen to my soul. After high school I went to college at Wichita State University on a full Track and Field Scholarship. If I would have let me initial upbringing derail me, I would not be where I am today. So yes, I accepted it. But my parents proved that with hard work and perseverance, I created a better life for myself. You can too!

Two Ways to Deal With Acceptance
Accept reality but Envision your future
Work hard and smart!

Strength and Blueberry Bliss

STRENGTH

“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” – Eleanor Roosevelt  

I know firsthand that life gets hard. Some days are easier than others but the goal should always be to keep going! When I decided to launch the GetLovedUp app, I had no idea what direction to take it in. But I took time each day to reflect and pull from the strength inside of me to create an app that would connect with women worldwide. How do you find strength? Comment below and share one way that you find strength daily.

Three Ways To Find New Strength 
1. Work your muscle: Just like exercise, you have to work your mental muscles each day.
2. Create an inspiration playlist: Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal etc. all provide opportunities to create playlists. Make one today that will instantly put you in a good mood.
3. Breathe!

Healing and Peach Perfection

HEALING

“The only work that will ultimately bring any good to any of us is the work of contributing to the healing of the world.” Marianne Williamson

By definition, healing consists of making free from injury or disease, to make sound or whole, to make whole again and restore health.This quote and definition deeply resonates with me. It’s essentially one of the reasons I started @GetLovedUp – the self-love aspect in particular. How do you define healing? Comment below and share a personal story about the process you take to heal.
Three Ways To Incorporate Healing Daily
1. Create a list of self-affirmations. Start with this one: You are enough!
2. Be patient. Healing takes time.
3. Take care of yourself. Take a yoga class, write in your journal…do what you need to release.
