There’s just something so fabulous about baby eyelashes, am I right?! This is also an ironic picture due to the fact this baby has been boycotting naps today. #ClarkAusten

I don’t know how to write this. It seems heavier than it is. The words sound like noisy weights falling clumsily into a world full of gratitude. Maybe I won’t feel like this again in the morning. Maybe I will. Maybe that’s all of us.
I want to be clear I didn’t look like this today. In fact right now I don’t remember the last day that I did. I can’t remember the last time I did something simple like get dressed or drink a glass of water or brush my teeth before I left the house. The last time my brain wasn’t listening for a cry whilst I showered hurriedly half way through the day. The last time I caught sight of myself in the mirror and felt anything close to recognition not pity. The last time my mind wasn’t willing itself just to get through the day.
The needs of my family feel so loud and more present than any grace or self care I could offer myself right now. The baby naps and time dissolves into a list of chores and that lump in my throat begins to build and I just want 5 minutes with my own thoughts. And sometimes I want to scream. And the minutes run through my fingers and the day passes out from under me until bone tired I crawl into bed unwashed and uncared for all the while making a mental list of the things I need to get done tomorrow.
And I know it will wait, I know it’s all supposed to wait, that’s what people tell you isn’t it? Leave it. Sleep when the baby sleeps. The house will wait. But I can’t make that work. Can anybody? Is it just one of those useless things we tell new Mothers? Because everybody needs clean clothes and a bathroom to bathe in and sheets to lay on and food to eat.
And right now, right in this minute I feel like I am drowning. Drowning quietly in my own neglect just trying to keep up. Trying to make peace with feeling so relentlessly needed. Trying to make peace with the idea that this isn’t my season to write a book or take an exercise class or paint my toe nails or anything in between. But still trying not to lose sight of myself.
I am so lucky. I am so grateful. I know I will figure out how to do better. This is just where I am right now.

Nothing better than your child who loves going to kindy or school.
My daughter loves going to kindy.
Last year my son started prep and hated going to school. He would always end up in tears and never wanted me to leave. This year isn't so bad, he would rather stay home.

Hump Day 5k.
Trance like, pushing against the headwind, burning chest and resistance of the double pram. Not to mention the self doubting thoughts which I know are silent and yet seem so loud.
I used to be so much fitter. I remember the feeling so well. It’s ingrained in my mind as a time that was like floating on a cloud whenever I would run. What I struggled through this morning I used to breeze through. I would easily complete double the amount and more.
In a healthy turn of events though, for once I have become my own motivation.
For once I do not aspire to become like anyone else, and random beautiful bodies that I look upon are mearly that, beautiful bodies.
Having myself as my own level of motivation means absolutely no excuses. I’ve been there before so I have no reason why I can’t get there again. Nice work brain, no getting around it in any way possible now.
What I’m hungry for is to become reacquainted with the woman who would use 5km as the warm up for her day.
10km for her ultimate release and anything over that as a way to test her mental and physical endurance in a way she never knew possible.
It’s a beautiful thing in life to feel the type of fire from within that ignites your soul.
Beautiful and confronting. But when you surrender to it and let it consume you, wonderful things happen.
Inside and out.

ONE IN A MINION 🎈 ... my baby turned the big 1️⃣ today! This past year FLEW by. It was filled with sleepless nights, tears, learning, joy, fear, unconditional love, laughing so hard it hurt, and many proud parent moments. Rediscovering the world through his eyes has given us a feeling that’s out of this world. Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate, it was such a great time. We love you Aston! 💛 #FirstBirthday #ToddlerStatus #MinionBirthday #OneinAMinion #AstonLord

We took a break from our flu party, bundled up for the California winter (it’s in the 50s... yes, we’re weak) and made it outside for a solid 18 minutes before returning back to the couch.

the reason why I do my daily spiritual practices is because my hope for my heart is that as I age… as I live each day… my soul softens against the hardness of this world.

I want my life to be a reflection of that softness. a reflection of what it could look like for us to melt in love with every insignificant thing, with every rain drop, with every moment of this wild ride.

it would just crush my being to look back and see that I’ve allowed this world to break me. to harden me. to define me.

and so, I practice. and when I forget, when I’m hard on myself, when I hate and fear, I practice loving that too.

this is what I believe to be the journey of our sovereignty. I am grateful for my Rise #worthywomenrise

I found this picture of me I posted in my first bootcamp, 21 days in.
Now I’m hosting my own bootcamps!
If you would have asked me then to be a coach, share my story and help others I would have been like HELL NO! But sometime down the road I decided HELL YES! I want to share my story, motivate & inspire because this is just too good of an opportunity to not share with everyone! It’s not always easy to be vulnerable and let people in to see me and my life #rawandreal but I get to workout from home whenever it works for me, I’ve got a group of girls who help hold me accountable #mytribemyvibe and I get paid 🤑#nocomplaints
I’m not striving for perfection or to impress anyone but myself #selflove
I’ve got an amazing team #epicempire that I feel pretty damn lucky to be a part of. I can’t wait to see what the future holds ✨#watchmeorjoinme💎
