Do you BELIEVE in the power of the mind? Can you BELIEVE you are deserving of the blessings you can't even see yet? Or are you stuck in your tunnel vision of what your life currently looks like? Do you only believe what you PERCEIVE to be your reality? Or can you RECEIVE what you BELIEVE to be possible ... Even outside all logical explanation?
What you perceive, you receive. So make the choice to perceive that which you cannot understand or explain with logic and try practicing a bit of FAITH. Faith: believing without seeing. Have faith ⏩ be blessed! You were not designed for mediocrity .. So stop letting your limiting beliefs about how great you are and how awesome your life can be keep you on that level. #IDareYou#RiseUpSunshine and #MakeManifest the #GloryOfGod
☮Once in a while I find myself questioning whether or not I'm a good mother, good wife, good mentor to my tribe. I would ask myself questions "Are the people surrounding me proud of me?" Sometimes being a work from home mom there are times where I feel as I'm not "good enough" because I am at home and not working at a corporate 9-5. I'm learning to let go of the fear of my own ego. My daily affirmations help me to remember the courage and happiness within me. I'm so grateful for the fact that I'm able to create a space to help women on their journeys with essential oils from anywhere I wish to. I Have the freedom to spend time with my family & not miss out on anything. The difference between trying to feel important and knowing your worth.... I am good enough. I am making a difference in this world. I am a wonderful mother. I am a great wife. I am proud of myself. When you are doing the work of self love not just materialistic things ( hair, nails), but the deeper work ... like I mean the essential oils diffusing, journaling and letting the writing flow out , you will realize how powerful doing the work really is!💜 ☄~My intuition is strong and clear. I trust the voice within~

✨NEVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF EVER. ✨Repeat this self-love mantra as often as needed. Sometimes doors close, but a window always opens.
Sometimes we have to scrap the plan all together and start all over. Sometimes what we want isn't in total alignment with the bigger plan that the Universe has for us and we are forced to abort. But never give up on yourself. ___
Never stop believing in yourself. Never. Don't let anybody or any negative belief in your head tell you that you can't have it or do it. Go get yours. Xo 💋Renée
Well this literally could not be truer of my run yesterday... I tripped and face-planted on the trail at mile 3 of my 12-mile run yesterday. Shaken, I got up, checked for cuts and injuries and kept going. Less than a 1/4 mile later, I tripped again but caught myself. I had to take a beat. I'd never fallen on this (not at all technical) part of the trail. I sat on a nearby bench and debated whether I wanted to continue with this run. There was a not insignificant part of me that wanted to give up, walk home and shower off the trail dirt that was caked on my arms and pants and call the day a loss. I even texted my mom in search of encouragement to keep going. It was so hard. I wanted to give up so badly, even though I wasn't really injured. But I convinced myself that if I just made it a little farther, I'd be on the road again and could regain my composure and confidence. So I did. I kept pushing forward. The run was awful. But I did it. I garnered the mental fortitude to keep going even after being completely rattled. This is where strength comes from: continuing the journey after you've fallen.
Here's hoping my half marathon next weekend goes better than this training run! 😰
After 23 years of marriage, I went through a very painful divorce that was my choice. I remember bracing myself for the conviction I was sure to feel but instead I heard God say to me, "it's OK, I will take care of him, you can go."
I though at first that I had made that up in my head. Surely God was not condoning this divorce, but it had been a very rocky 23 years. Yes, there were good time but in all honesty I doubt he would have been God's choice for me. I was young and naive and he wanted me and after just three months, I said yes and married him three months later.
But God. The God who says He will work all things together for good for those that love Him and are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
First, God gave us the most amazing son that would not be the incredible man he is without his father and me.
Second, I can look back and see all the ways God provided for me and strengthened me in my faith. There were times I had to rely on Him to make it to today.
Third, God has brought me together with an amazing husband that loves to take care of me and supports me in all my crazy endeavors.
@lisabevere says, "obstacles do not prevent you from your calling, they prepare you for it."
Do I think divorce is OK? No. Do I believe there are situations where God says it's OK? Absolutely. And I believe He loved me through it and has an amazing plan for my life, one that is just now beginning.
Whatever you are going through, stay close to Him. Don't be hard on yourself. Forgive. Pray blessing prayers for anyone involved. And trust the journey you are on, it's just a detour to something greater. xoxo Judy

Iceland holds a special place in my heart. This was truly the beginning of my journey almost a year ago. If you haven't visited this place.. I would highly suggest it!
So, you feel lost and you feel like you're kind of running around in circles aimlessly in life? 🤔
It may all seem a little confusing right now, I've been there. I get it.
I don't know everything about my own journey, but I do know once I started to trust it, when I reflect back on how far I've come in becoming Donna, I realize, all of it had its purpose with me. All of it! And, now it's all starting to make perfect sense. We can't live fighting and questioning our journey. If we do, we may live our whole earthly life, sad, miserable and lonely. Let's live this life and live it in such a way that when we arrive at our final destination, there will be no regrets.
Love y'all, D💖✌ #noregrets#inspiration#motivation#encouragement#dontquit#keepgoing#trust#trustthejourney#powerofpositivity#positivity#mindset
It's so easy to fixate on the future. To wonder and worry of what's to come. Until we remember that where we are is here, right now.
As the beautiful, ever-reminding @nahkobear sung today at @santacruzmountainsol:
Is this patience
When to be close
And when to give space
More wisdom from @brianandreas ✨
Sometimes life is just one painful step at a time. A slow journey of trying to be better than you were the day before. Of trying to make different, better mistakes. Of becoming more comfortable in the unknown. From @jockowillink podcast a few days ago with @robjonesjourney : | Adapt and overcome. Change whatever you need to in order to become what is required to transcend the obstacle. Do not stop until you have accomplished the mission, regardless of any monkey wrench that gets thrown into your plan. Change the plan 1000 times until what needs to be done is done. | (Adapted slightly from Rob Jones' online journal). I have a goal. But I am faltering. Insecurities arise. Doubt creeps in. But I will remain faithful. I will persist despite setbacks. Even if the goal comes to nothing, it will have taught me something about myself. #TrustTheJourney#SeekWisdom#SeekGrace#StrongerThanYesterday#Goal#Setbacks#Faithful#Unknown#Adapt#Overcome#Insecurities
