Stop overthinking it, just jump!
April is sexual assault awareness month. 1 in 5 women are sexually assaulted every year. I am 1 of those women. My abuser didn't just take a piece of me, he took all of me. He took my joy and passion for life and my will to keep going. I was lost for years and too afraid to even tell anyone what happened. I felt like it was my fault and no one would ever believe me so I stayed quiet. This yr will be 10 yrs since that night and in the past 10 years there's a lot I have learned.
I had to hit rock bottom to see how much my healing mattered. I had to tell people in order to stop trying to fix it on my own. I had to learn to forgive that man, not for his benefit but for myself. I had to stop blaming myself and see that I am not a victim but in fact a warrior. Only in the past 6 months have I truly made huge steps in healing from this and I don't know if I'll ever be fully healed but I do know that the fear isn't as strong. I know that I feel so damn powerful and that I see parts of me I thought were lost forever, coming back. I'll never be exactly who I was before that night and I don't want to be. That night changed me forever and what was meant to keep me down has in fact been the foundation for why I continue to soar.
1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted and it kills me to know these statistics. I pray for a world where women are safe and where No means NO! Join me in celebrating the warriors of sexual assault by speaking up, believing their story and never judging them for their truth. We are not alone and we can be a voice of change! Let's rise together and help one another heal! We are so much more than what's happened to us and I'm proud to be proof of that! #sexualassaultawareness #werisebyliftingothers #sexualassaultawarenesmonth
I debated on posting this because talking about my weight is not something I've ever done on my platform. I may have touched here and there on the weight gain that has come with pcos but my weight has been something I deal with privately.
For a while I felt fat and ugly and was convinced this was just who I would be. I've never been very thin but my weight never bothered me til I gained 60 ibs in a year when I was 22. After high school my fitness lifestyle was none existent and I let myself go. Between mental health struggles and the daily battle of pcos I gave up but than in June of 2018 I met my doctor and she discussed mindful eating with me. She said "when you eat, think about how you feel after. If you feel good keep eating that food and if not stay away from it."
I've been struggling with pelvic pains for years and I was told its from my IBS and pcos but everything they told me to try brought me no relief. At the end of October I finally decided to eliminate all gluten and to eliminate the last bit of dairy still in my diet...cheese. My pelvic pains went away almost instantly and that was all I needed to keep going. I got back in the gym. I started eliminating more people that were causing me a lot of stress, I cut out all meat but turkey and chicken every once and a while and I started learning to love my body at the weight that it was.
Fast forward 2.5 months later and I'm down 25 ibs. My goal was to feel better and if loosing weight came with that I was happy but if not I honestly knew I would be okay as long as my body felt good.
As I looked at these two pics side by side this morning I couldn't help but smile. Though I wanted to give up on healing my body I'm so glad I didn't.
Your size doesnt matter. The number on the scale doesn't matter. What matters is how you feel! Don't let the scale or the size of your pants determine what you're worth! You are so much more! #pcoswarrior #selflovejourney #presentoverperfect
Maybe you noticed I've been quiet on my business page lately so today I'm getting vulnerable again and sharing the truth. This is reality right now. Bundled up in a robe on my back porch just so I can breathe in some fresh air. The truth behind running a business while living with mental illness. I know when I post these I may lose followers or people may be turned off but I've come to see that's ok. What matters is what's best for me and I feel a strong calling to share these videos because I know I'm not the only business owner or person in general going through this. It never ever rains forever, this too shall pass 💜

Yesterday's shoot with Jae Santiago was straight fire yesterday. This talented boss babe styled all models (herself included) and you can find all these looks at her shop Basura Thrift Boutique! I can't wait to show you more but for now just go see Jae and get ya self a fresh look!

Head to one of the links below to listen. One is for Google and the other for iTunes! You can also head to IG to view the playback of our live chat we did at 12. If you've wondered how I got to where I am today, you'll definitely want to tune in.
Thank you to all who continue to support me. I wouldn't be here without you!
I opened the message to read "sorry but you are chubby, you should spend more time in the gym." If I read a message like that a few years ago it would have rocked my world but not this time. This time his words meant nothing to me because I know my body is beautiful no matter what size. I refuse to allow myself or anyone else to define me based off my size. Yeah I got curves, and guess what? I love them!
Stop allowing someone else to determine your worth. Stop listening to the lies people say about your body. It doesnt matter what shape you are, what matters is what's inside your soul. Love yourself fiercely so that if anyone tries to shame you, you can remind yourself of what's true!
Changes are coming for my business and I'm sharing all the details on today's blog post. Go check it out!
There are no words that can accurately explain the feeling that comes when you realize you have finally let go of all not meant for you in order for what’s to c
You'll never stop hearing me advocate for therapy. When I see first hand how something has helped me in a positive way I want to share it with others as well! The stigma placed on therapy as well as mental illness needs to be broken so here I am again, showing up and telling my truth so that maybe one person can see that warriors are so much more than their mental health struggles. Therapy is for everyone. Check in on your mind as much as you do your physical body. There are 3 components to overall wellness. Mind, body and soul. You can't have one without the other so please make sure to check in on all 3 and be mindful of the way you care for yourself.
