To Remain Snatched | #goals

img_3739-1

🗣💕My forever goal: to remain snatched all of my days! 🗣💕

A short while ago, a lady complimented me on my physique. She said, “You must workout… oh, and you’re married?! I know your husband is happy… so many people lose themselves after they say ‘I do’”.

I’ve heard that scenario one too many times! The woman (and sometimes the man) looks fabulous leading up to the big day, and months later, “happy weight” settles in.

Well that’s not my story.

Why? Because my fitness is… for me! I’m not perfect, and sometimes I REALLY have to push myself, but it’s always worth it! And although my hubby loves it, I don’t workout for him! I do it because I want to and I need to… for me!

Yes… FOR ME! That is crucial!

Many times, we as women do things to please everyone, but ourselves! It’s not always intentional, but it can be so destructive if we are constantly striving to live up to the expectations of others (which can change in an instance). We must get (back) to that place of doing things for OURSELVES and to OUR Satisfaction!

I want to live long, and enjoy every moment of this thing called life! And I am extremely grateful to be able to enjoy it with my hubby… he reaps the benefits for sure!

I want to look and feel amazing in my body every single day! I want my clothes to fit to my liking and, quite frankly, I want to walk up to the mirror and love what I SEE… ME!

I want God to be able to use me! I WANT to LIVE and LOOK like HIS “royal priesthood”! It’s just that serious to me! You CAN serve the Master and look absolutely fabulous while doing it 👀🙌🏾💕 #snatchedforhisglory

Make the commitment to yourself… for yourself… and watch things TRANSFORM in you life💕💕

Baecation in the Dominican| “We Stopped Waiting for the ‘Perfect’ Moment”

I’m back!

I’ve been away with my Boo Bear in the Dominican, to celebrate our 3 year wedding anniversary!  How was it? Well, if you’ve ever been to an all-inclusive resort, on a beautiful island, with the love of your life… then you already know the trip was #LIT! And I’m back to share a few flicks, and 3 important lessons learned while overseas!

1. Stop waiting for the right moment and create it! Stop waiting and start living!

Keem and I have been babysitting our passports for the past few months. We were literally waiting for everything to align; our jobs, schedules… etc. We’d sit around and dream/talk about how we can’t wait to take a vacation one day soon. It wasn’t until we heard a talk from Les Brown, that we decided to stop waiting for the “perfect” moment! Tomorrow isn’t promised, all we have is today.  So we booked our first trip out of the country together, and didn’t look back! And the funny thing is that once we made that move… EVERYTHING else came into alignment, and we had the time of our lives! 

If you’re babysitting an idea or a “move”… stop! Take that first step.  Make the phone call, book that flight… leave that job (did I say it, I did)!  Stop waiting for the perfect moment to do what you need/want… CREATE IT!

2. Enjoy the experience

There was so much to take in.  If you’ve ever traveled out of the country then you know it can be overwhelming, especially is there is a language barrier. But Keem and I decided that we were both going to step out of our comfort zones, and enjoy the experience of it all! We didn’t want that “overwhelmed” feeling to keep us trapped in our resort room… We had VIP access, and we just couldn’t let it go to waste.  So we went out, embraced the unknown… and guess what? It was BOMB! From me using my 6 years of Spanish, to “flying” with Superman… all the way to Keem dancing Bachata with me at the pool party…  (yes my honey came to the dance floor just for me ❤)… it was everything and so much more! 

 Now, whenever something arises that challenges us to step out of the box , we have a simple word to remind ourselves to live in the moment; “Experiencion“! (Totally made up, but it’s our thing and I love it!)

So if you find yourself in a situation where you are being challenged to step out of your comfort zone, or faced with feeling overwhelmed… push beyond those feelings and enjoy the experience. Live in the moment, and don’t let the unknown trap you and keep you from living your best life. #livingmybestlife2018

3. Bonding is the key

The other night as we reflected on our trip, we realized just how much we needed it. Although we see each other everyday, we needed this time to bond and reconnect. We were totally disconnected from our “normal” day to day. No WiFi, no work calls, no social media… just my honey and I! Yes, we are young and in love, but the busyness of life is a real distraction #realtalk. 

So if you’re married, be sure to set aside DEDICATED TIME just for reconnecting.

No, of course you don’t have to leave the country to bond with your spouse, but I’d say be very deliberate with keeping the distraction at bay. Leave the house, find a babysitter if you can, and put the phone down.   I’ve personally gotten into the habit of turning my phone on airplane mode when we go out. Some say extreme, I say I want to give my man my undivided attention when we set aside the time to date!

Yes, it’s just that important!

 

Be encouraged (and live) ❤
