Conquer Your Mind. Transform Your Life.
Let’s talk about strength. No, not the size of your arms, your endurance, or even that six pack we all wish for.
The most important organ that needs strengthening is our minds. Let me be clear: no matter how much weight you can lift or how long your workouts are, if you are not in the right mindset you will never reach your goals.
Let’s leave the topic of fitness all together. You cannot lead a positive life with a negative mind.
Michael Jordan, Steve Jobs, Thomas Edison, Einstein, Walt Disney. At one time or another, they all failed, and failed again, and then failed some more. Can you imagine a world without these history makers?
These people all succeeded because they never gave up. They refused to listen when people told them no.
Whatever you want to do in life, you can succeed. The only person standing in your way is you. So what do you choose to do about it?

The best thing we all can do is breakthrough once you've been broken down.. esp more times than enough... self-love will always radiate above all... becoming the person you are meant to be will create greatness to your well-being... you just need to believe in yourself, think highly of yourself, be confident enough to elevate your mind to stay positive in rediscovering your light, redefining who YOU are... but remember how you got to that place, how far you've come, despite your past, every trial & tribulation helped shape who you are & got you to where you are at right now at this moment in life to want & dream bigger for yourself... Affirm every fiber of your well-being out loud because you deserve every bit of honesty & what you go after in this life... there will always be better days to create becuz every day is new... prioritize your time to live your life to your fullest potential... you have to know that you are valued & don't ever think less of it.... Never let a mf bring you down with words or thoughts becuz you are stronger than you think.. Never let someone's misconceptions or bad intentions make you feel unwanted.. it is NOT who you are, it is who they are... Always speak your truth... Just remember the love you have always magnified will illuminate others to want that same greatness, that same love... oooh, hatred is so easy to do but love will inspire you to do more than you know! Love YOUrself whole-heartedly becuz its the best breakthrough from within.
Dear future Kaitlyn: when you’re reading through your old posts, which you know you make a habit of, just remember this moment. Know how incredible you are. You have come SO far and have accomplished more than you ever thought you would.
You have dreams and goals on the horizon. Don’t stop moving. Keep hustling, keep fighting to make all that happen (but don’t stress yourself out 🙂) Others look up to you, so don’t get discouraged! You’ve got this girl!!
-present day Kaitlyn
Let’s be honest. Not comparing yourselves to others on the internet is easier said than done. But like anything else, you have to train your mind to stop those negative thoughts in their tracks. Don’t believe those lies you tell yourself.
No one’s life is what it always appears on their social media. We struggle on the daily and try and be relatable.
How else do we expect to make connections and be able to have those conversations if we don’t talk about what’s difficult for us. More than likely those listening to what you have to say have been there. We’re more alike than it may seem.
Just because you’re not in the same place as that person you look up to doesn’t mean that you aren’t doing your very best.
Create healthy habits, take little steps, and see big results.
I can help you BE that inspiration. Don’t forget to pat yourself on the back for everything you’ve accomplished until this point and use that to propel yourself forward. Link in bio!

Getting my iPad and using procreate has brought back some inspiration I thought I lost. #procreate
Idk who she is, I found the photo on Pinterest but if you know who it is, feel free to tag her 🙏🏽
Lately I’ve been just doing digital work. Till @artezaofficial sent me a few products and had me hype to get back to some traditional stuff. So I tried a few new techniques, still learning to use these water color brushes but having a good time. Lmk what you think and if you’d like to see more.
The photos I’ve taken on my phone. I’ve reset my phone and these are the only photos I have on my phone. In 2019 I’m more serious about photography, fashion and makeup. Those three are my main focus/passions. My photos aren’t very professional yet but, they’re a working progress. I hope you guys like my photos. #aspiringphotographer#ashleylylesbusiness#aspiredtoinspire#doingwhatIlove
You can't force others to be kinder, more tolerant, more cooperative. Yet you can set a powerful positive example with your own behavior.
Don't wait to receive kindness before offering kindness to others. You can be more proactive than that.
Something people tend to confuse the meaning behind their “GIFT(s)”
Some don’t know what their “GIFT(s)” is (are).
For me, it has been the game of basketball. It has taken me to extreme heights...and even more extreme lows. But it has given me multiple things:
PERSPECTIVE - If you don’t love something, why do it? Is it possible to learn how to love it again? What is my attitude communicating to those watching? Why get mad at this specific thing? Will it TRULY matter 5 years from now?
These questions and MORE...all from this round ball... let that sink in.
OPPORTUNITY to change the lives around me. From children, to young adults, and communities as a whole, being an athlete has given me the chance to be THAT example to follow. I’ve become a HERO and a mentor in the eyes of many children. Parents have expressed that they want their young adults to grow to be like me as a PERSON, not just an ATHLETE.
COMPANIONSHIP from people I consider lifelong friends till this very day. People that dont want anything from me but to see me “make it” and remain who I am. They make sure that I follow any and every ambition I have and dont get a big head whenever I succeed.
