ARIES LADIES MAKE SOME NOISE (WHOOP WHOOP)! Last year I decided to live life on purpose and start taking some time out for myself. Well to commemorate such a milestone, and continue living life on purpose, I am joining the #40by40 campaign. Want to join the campaign but donโ€™t know where to start?

Trust the process December 2014โฃ โฃ 10 years. TEN. 5+5. 120 months. $89,000 worth of debt ๐Ÿ˜ญ. This was always embarrassing for me to tell people or put on my applications. Like who takes this long to get a B.A.?โฃ โฃ It's a common myth that one should finish college within 4 years. Truth is, unless you're kidless, aren't required to work, or hold any other responsibilities, this ideal schedule is likely unrealistic. And this was my reality. I worked. I got pregnant. I got married. I had a another baby. I got divorced. Then I got pregnant again. All while trying to complete a degree. Even in the midst of all these life altering events, everyday life was still happening. I changed my major two times hoping to finish sooner. Each time I changed, so did the list of requirements to complete. Nothing was coming easy. I found myself unsure of my purpose. What was I really doing with my life? โฃ I finally settled on a degree in Liberal Studies (my transcript & debt confirms this choice ๐Ÿ˜‚) just to say I was done. Had no idea what I was going to do with this degree. Hadn't event researched job opportunities available. I was finished and that's all that mattered. โฃ So often we get hung up on "the standard" and allow doubt to set it. What works for others was not meant to work the same way for you! Your purpose is different. Your story is different. Sure sometimes we prolong ourselves because of some of the choices we make throughout the process, but would your story be the same? Would the passion behind it be the same?โฃ You finished and that's what matters most. Stop letting other people's timelines define yours. I've learned to not be embarrassed by my story. It defines who I am and how I've become the woman, mother, and friend I am today. Allow yourself grace when you don't meet your own standards and stop discrediting yourself. There's someone watching you waiting on you to finish, only to inspire and push them. ๐Ÿฅ‚โฃ

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ Memorial Day 2020๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฒ โ€œLet their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored.โ€ โ€“ Daniel Webster

Travel is therapy for many of us. Today I was supposed to be laying out on the beaches of Los Cabos, Mexico. Soaking up some sun and enjoying the sounds of the waves pounding into each other, while sipping a refreshing drink. Thanks Corona ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญโฃโฃ โฃ Trying to ease the thought of disappointment, I grabbed my favorite @drinkcalypso lemonade, turned my music on and chilled out by the pool. โฃโฃ Definitely doesn't compare to the beach but certainly allowed me a moment to clear my mind from recent happenings. โฃ โฃ Gather a few of your favorites and head outside for a moment of serenity. It's ok to imagine you're at your favorite vacation spot ๐Ÿ˜Š.โฃ โฃ Has Corona crushed your vacation plans too? Where were you headed?โฃ โฃ

#WellnessWednesday Running late doesn't mean you have to skip breakfast. Breakfast sets the tone for the rest of your day. Whether you're rushing out the door because you over slept or you're trying to lose weight is a great alternative for breakfast on the run. Campoverde conveniently comes in pre-portioned packs making breakfast on the go a breeze. Just add milk, juice, or water and blend. No prep work necessary. Each portion is packed with just the right amount of fruits and vegetables to get my day started off right. Energy boost, fit & wellness, and forever young are just a few of the options available to fit your lifestyle/needs. What makes it even better? My kids love them too. Don't skip a meal because you're in a rush. Grab a bag today at your local grocer.

Transparent Moment โœจEthan A. Burrell โœจDUE DATE: MARCH 2015 โœจDOB: DECEMBER 30, 2014 โœจ2lbs 6oz โœจ55 days in the NICU Before birth, I have no pictures of me pregnant with Ethan. Kid #3. Daddy #3. I was embarrassed to say the least. I hid my pregnancy from social media and tried to stay out of public as much as I could. I had just been four years since my divorce. I hadn't finished college yet. Living back with parents and my older two sons. How was I going to break the news this time? As if self guilt was already hard enough to deal with, this was the most difficult pregnancy of the three. I had appointments every Friday due to early onset complications. December 30 I was admitted to the hospital to be placed on strict bed rest. Meaning I was stuck there until I delivered (whenever that was)๐Ÿ˜ญ. I wasn't ready. I had NOTHING! Not a crib, a blanket, not even a name. Within minutes at only 29 weeks pregnant my body went into full on labor and nothing they tried could stop the process. "We have to take the baby now or we'll lose them both." The last words I remember hearing before his birth. I remember my mom so reassuringly saying "Nene, you're not the first one and you won't be the last." It wasn't until after his birth at that moment, that I came to accept him and nevermind what others would possibly think of me. Despite our flaws, children are a gift from God. He entrusted me with this one and knew just what we all needed at that moment in our lives โค๏ธ When it's time to deliver (spiritually) there's NOTHING here on earth that can stop the birthing process regardless of how unprepared we may be. Don't leave this earth without bring forth what God has placed in you. Your time is now ๐Ÿฅ‚

#selfcaresunday๐Ÿ’• Who isn't ready to face the camera after a refreshing facial? Going to a spa getting a facial is an amazing experience but what about in-between visits and now that many of us are still quarantining at home? I suffer from both Oily & dry skin. I either peel or I get tons of pimples and blackheads. My facial routine has helped me keep my skin glowing and eliminate those pimples from forming (when I'm consistent). I exfoliate three times a week. The other days my routine stays the same, I just eliminate the exfoliating. It leaves my skin feeling smooth, soft, and glowing ๐Ÿฅฐ What are your go to #DIY facial products?

Always hyping the group up to join their craziness. ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ It's me. I am that friend. I'm an adrenaline junkyI had this insane idea that I wanted to go sky diving (don't ask). Mind you I'm afraid of heights. like anything above 3 stories, anxiety is kicking in and I'm on the verge of an episode. ๐Ÿ˜ญ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € It was all fun and games until the door rolled up and I'm squatting at the edge of the plane begging them not to make me do it. I didn't know if I wanted to cuss or pray ๐Ÿค”. I decided on the latter because if I died while flying I had no intentions on going to hell. I closed my eyes and yelled "OH MY GODDDDD" until the ground below me was no longer blurry. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € I think my eyes were closed the whole time but I have pictures and videos (receipts) so it happened ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ.

It's one of those experiences you can't describe. You just have to try it for yourself. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € I'm ready for the next adventure ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿšฃ What's on your list? ๐Ÿช‚
