Have you ever just sat and dreamed without the fear of failing? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Girl, get out of your own way and chase those dreams. Fear is a liar, fear is letting those insecurities holding you back, fear is the Devil winning..preventing you from being the person you were destined to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stop worrying about you failing and just go for it. Pray about it, visualize it, and tell fear to take a hike! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Go chase those big scary dreams, I believe in you.
I know you have heard some rendition of this saying a hundred times before but I want you stop and really think about it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What attributes of yourself are you focusing on daily? How often to you praise yourself for a job well done? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you believe what this picture says, and I hope you do, then it might just open up your eyes a little. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If everyday you are constantly thinking about your physical flaws (or worse saying them out loud), tearing down your cooking/cleaning /parenting abilities (even in jokes), and telling yourself that you are not good enough to succeed at your dreams....what do you think will happen? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The answer is simple, you will believe the lies you are telling yourself. You will slowly break down any confidence you have. Gosh, we are often the worst mean girls of them all! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Friend, you deserve so much more than that! You deserve to see your own beauty and believe in yourself! I know it seems far off and impossible but a couple mindset shifts can change your entire life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Instead of talking down to yourself everyday, spread grace and love. Wake up each morning and think about 1 thing that you love about your physical self. Don’t love something? Then say something positive about the thing you hate the least. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Be sure to praise yourself throughout the day, just like you would a child. Tell yourself good job for simple tasks like keeping up on the laundry, heck give yourself a high five for showering 🙌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The more you speak positivity into your own life the more your mindset will shift! Love yourself just the way you would love your best friend and stop being a bully!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @lysaterkeurst
There is nothing like rocking out to Alanis Morisette while working a little to make me realize I am finally the body confident, risk taking, boss babe I have always dreamed of 🙌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From the depths of my own insecurities I managed to turn every single one of my weaknesses into a strength! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can’t do my own makeup to save my life? Start a makeup business! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Struggled with feeling beautiful? Go on a campaign of self love and watch those words turn into truths. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Feel like I can't be a success in business? Start a couple more and vow to have 5+ streams of income by the year end. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is holding you back?? You might not know what your dreams are anymore, I sure as heck didn’t but I went for them everyday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If someone had told me a year ago that... -> I’d love my size 10 body more than I loved my size 2 -> I’d love rocking bright purple lippies -> I’d be launching multiple businesses -> I’d FINALLY feel that enoughness I’d been craving ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ...I would have smiled at them and shook my head. All of my fears and doubts would have surfaced and I would have come up with a hundred reason why that just wasn’t possible. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ YET HERE I AM! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t let your own lies hold you back! You are never too old or unqualified to just go for it!
Just in case you have been living under a rock and have yet to hear of this book. Go read it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rachel Hollis is exactly the person I have been looking for and striving to be. Realizing we are all a little bit of a hot mess does not give us permission to just give up! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every page I read, I find myself shaking my head whispering yes This is what I needed and I am pretty sure it might just be what you need to. Double tap if you loved it just as much as I do. 📷 @mariedluciano
Hey Riki your so fine... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Oh gosh I crack myself up sometimes...you are very welcome for the catchy turn you are now singing in your head😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In all seriousness, how amazing is this little gem? It’s a makeup artist favorite, for obvious reasons... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, it’s available to you! Never do your makeup in bad lighting again! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Run a business where you need lighted selfies or well light videos? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is your answer! It even has a handy little thing to hold your phone so you can see your face AND use your camera ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Psst...the back camera ALWAYS produces better quality, so flip that phone around and use the mirror to ensure perfect pictures/videos.
I was never the girl with a full jewelry box. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Part of me didn’t see the value, the other part had zero idea how to put it all together 🤷🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Then I discovered cheap jewelry and thought it was love...until i realized that if I was paying so little what was the person making it gaining? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wow, was that an ugly wake up call for me. My beloved $5 earrings now seem not so pretty. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That’s when I discovered @starfish_project ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not only is their jewelry gorgeous AND versatile (this girl need versatile) but their mission tugs at my heart strings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I suffer from wanting to help everyone but lacking the time or funds to do so. When I realized I could support women with my purchase and they would ACTUALLY benefit from it, I was 100% on board. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Be sure to check them out, I’m positive you will find something you love too. #betterbeauty #whenyouknowbetter #fashionwithacause ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @rachelrumplephotography
Hey there beautiful! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you you ever noticed that all of these success stories we read are written by “workaholics”? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why has that become a badge of honor? Does that mean that success isn’t possible for those that have always been a little on the lazy side, or even the ones that are pretty darn good at balance? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just because you like sleep and you don’t reorganize your cupboards in your spare time DOES NOT mean that you are not destined for greatness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You live in a world of possibilities. A world that you can find your strengths and joys in life and turn them into a thriving business opportunity...but you HAVE to believe in yourself first. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, stop comparing yourself to strangers on the internet, authors of books, and the old ideals of what it took to successful in business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stop comparing your beginning to someone else’s middle! Who cares if “so and so” found success quicker, or if you have already tried and failed 5 different business ventures, just keep going. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You are the captain of your own life and if it’s a little bit slower paced, than that’s okay! I actually prefer it that way 😉
Makeup is whatever you want it to be, it’s a reflection of who you are.⠀ ⠀ It can be your best friend one bad skin days, an old faithful, it can be your pop of color when going out, or a little brightening after yet another sleepless night....⠀ ⠀ Honestly, it doesn’t matter how often you wear makeup, what it should never be is cakey and full of chemicals.⠀ ⠀ Your skin deserves better than $5 drugstore makeup...and so do you.⠀ ⠀ It’s about time you start demanding the best. Start demanding non irritating mascara, foundation that looks like skin and doesn’t clog pores, lipstick that doesn’t dry your lips out...⠀ ⠀ Say yes to 50% pigmentation, leaping bunny certified, high quality, and the best in the industry.⠀ ⠀ Say no to parabens, perfumes, low quality fillers.⠀ ⠀ Double tap if you are ready to raise your standards. #cleanbeauty #usewhattheprosuse #youdeservebetter
