All the times I've been called brave, it didn't ever feel like "brave" in the moment. I felt afraid, uncertainty, maybe even alone. In the moment, I may have been shaking, but taking action moves you forward. Don't go through life fearing the unknown, avoiding failure. Failing is, at times, inevitable but it's what teaches us and allows growth. Do not fear failure, instead fear stagnation. Be brave and try ❤️ . . #showmeyourbrave #embracefailure #mindsetmatters #positivemindset #dailyinspiration #growthmentality #growthmindset #donotfear

The end of a cRaZy chapter is now officially closed 🚪✌️ My first semester of nursing school is over and grades posted... Foundations of Nursing: A Pharmacology: A 😳😱 CUE ALL THE UGLY TEARS!!! 😭😭😭 Before you think I'm an asshole for "bragging," 💁 try to hear the humility and raw-ness in what I'm here to share. The last 4 months have been one of the hardest seasons I've experienced. The personal growth that has taken place absolutely blows my mind 🤯💥 I've been stretched to my absolute limits as a mom, a wife, a student, a woman, a friend, a member of freakin society... ALL THE THINGS!! Did I mention I VOLUNTEERED myself to not only join the Student Nurses Association but also stepped up as an officer 😂🤦 (learning to say no 🙅) There wasn't a week that went by that I didn't consider quitting. The stress strained close relationships, it made me question if I was being selfish for pursuing this at the expense of time and energy for my children, it's drained finances causing us to put a hold on future plans. But here's a few lessons I learned: 1) You can do ANYTHING you put your mind to *if* you also put your heart into it. It must mean something to you and you must take action. 2) Not everyone is going to understand or support you in what you're doing. Sometimes even those closest to you will tell you you [can't]. It's painful and disheartening but you cannot seek acceptance or permission from anyone other than yourself. 3) Having said that, you cannot do this alone #AskForHelp You may not get support from the person or people you *think* you NEED it from, but you've got to find someone or something to lean into in life. My husband has been an amazing support for me, but I've also leaned on classmates, my internet friends (😂), God, and even an amazing instructor (yea, I was that student bawling in her office). So if I'm still an asshole for bragging, I'll own that 👌 I am PROUD OF MYSELF and nobody can take that from me ❤️🙌 . #nursingstudent #studentmom #studentnurse #toddlermom #rnprogram #mominschool #growth #mindsetmatters #holistichealth

Healthy goes far deeper than what you eat 🌮! It's what you watch, what you listen to, the people you surround yourself with, the products you put in and on your body, and how you talk to yourself, to name a few ❤️ . . . #healthy #healthymind #healthybody #healthyspirit #holistichealth #holistichealing #nontoxic #cleanliving #crunchymom #crunchyish #crunchymama

🙏 Practice Gratitude Daily 🙏 That sounded really weird to me at first, "practicing" gratitude. You're either grateful or you're not, right?! Actually"practicing" gratitude, by recognizing and acknowledging exactly what you're grateful for on a regular basis works to rewire your thinking. Grateful people, those who regularly and actively practice gratitude, actually find more to be grateful for! They become more positive in general. It allows them to be more resilient in life. On a subconscious level, they seek more gratefulness. They feel more content and full filled. They need less "more" 🙌 I challenge you to make a list of 10 things you're grateful for right now in this moment! Don't be surprised if you struggle a little, it takes PRACTICE 😉 Share with me something you're grateful for below!! ⬇️⬇️⬇️ . #happythanksgivng #grateful #gratitudedaily
