I love this picture! Not because of what it is, but what it represents.
We are constantly being watched by little ones. They want to know what we know. They learn so much more than what we think by observing, listening, and mimicking all of us. This is a gentle reminder of that. The adult hat was or there only after the kid hat was put there to be like daddy and asked daddy to put his there too.
So I promise to put my best foot 👣forward in the best way that I can. I will show love, compassion, and gratitude in everything that is around us. I will teach how to take care of not just ourselves, but everyone and everything around us. I will let them know that our way is not the only way nor is it the way for everyone.
You and I may not agree on everything 100% all the time, but respecting each other and their views is one of the biggest lessons to learn and teach, along with everything stated above. 👆
Happy International Women's Day! .
You never know who's value and habits you're influencing.
So what sort of habits does this little impressionable girl see?
A mama who exercises because she likes to move her body, but is also ok with taking days off and truly doesn't really have a consistent workout routine.
A mama who loves to eat vegetables because they make her feel good and are good for her, but also isn't afraid to demo a batch of chocolate chip cookies.
A mama who doesn't have a body like all the Disney princesses, but still wears bikinis, talks about how she loves her tummy and wears crop top often (even if she still herself feels some thoughts of insecurity)
A mama who sometimes falls off track, sometimes cries in front of her, and doesn't always say the right thing, but is comfortable admitting mistakes to her.
A mama who spends her career lifting up other women to embrace who they are destined to be.
Remember your daughter's are always watching, and it's the perfect chance for you to be the best version of yourself you can be for them... But more importantly, for you. .

Thought family time watching disney movies for the past 22 years with my kids was quality time. Now I've found out that I've given the girls excuses to bring home scrubs (tlc). Had to share, lol.
Laugh a little and love more!
The pics that the #huaweip20pro can get at #night are incredible. When I walk up. And down this street especially when it's stormy reminds me of Devil's Night from #thecrow and I LOVE living near a church. For some reason always have, growing up at my mum moving to #brighton living on Queens Road. Now here in #portsmouth no matter the size there's always something grotesquely dominant about #churches#church . Like they're always looking down, judging. Sometimes I wonder how much of an #athiest I actually am haha. #thefear#youth#impressionableminds
This is me posing for the fam cam back in the early days of living in Miami right in front of the Walgreens, because ya know we all need one of those backdrops 😉 I was about Gracie Lynn’s age of 5ish, that time in our lives that really begins shaping the core of who will become later on in life as we grow into women. #famcam#miamiborn#impressionableminds#girlsbecomewomen
The next photo is me visiting my grandmother not too long before she would go on to Heaven. She lived a long amazing life. She was selfless and especially so considering she had very little materialistically and what she did have with all that... she gave to her children and her grandchildren, and so forth, decades before she’d leave us. #selflessness#loveher
My grandmother raised three girls as a single parent with little education. She did her absolute best for them, for her grandchildren, and even her great grandchildren. She was there for the birth of most all of us and our children, wherever we lived, she came to help. She even stepped in often to help raise me, and others as well. Scroll to next photos. #rememberingher#herinfluence#thatlittlegirl#sheisme
A few major influences she had in my life was her selflessness, her love of children, her family, her friends, and her joy for life. She taught me strength and perseverance through anything. My grandmother would dance to any kind of music I forced her to listen to over the years as I grew up. She’d laugh loudly and act a fool with me. She always made me feel loved. #love#createjoy#selflove#perseverance#strength#dancetoyourownbeat
Motherhood isn't a competition to see who has the smartest kids, the cleanest homes, the healthiest dinners or fanciest clothes. Motherhood is your journey with your kids... #motherhood #journey
Was gonna do a dragon flag & got dis surprise. U never know who is watching... #impressionableminds 🤗
When I found out I was having a daughter, I swore I wouldn't project my insecurities on her. She may be young, but she's so impressionable, learning from every word I say and action I make.
So this morning when she was playing with my loose stomach flesh, I let her explore it. She cuddled, kissed, massaged and smacked my tummy.
And I laughed, and chatted with her about how great it was that the very tummy she was fascinated with grew her.
My body has let me down countless times, especially in the last 12 months, but it gave me this beautiful soul and for that I will thank it every day for the rest of my life.
@Regran_ed from @brotherbenx - Satan makes evil fair seeming, so we have to be careful and on point when dealing with the garden of eden(the mind) of our children where the SNAKE(wicked crooked devil) can drop SEEDS in the garden that may grow as they get older. #School#BrotherBenX#BrofherBenSpeaks ~~ What’s your thoughts on it though? - #regrann
It is my wish that you may have a better and freer life than I have had. Recommend virtue to your children; it alone, not money, can make them happy. I speak from experience; this was what upheld me in time of misery. - Ludwig van Beethoven
Now that @ndcrain got the goods, I can share! A few of my favorite things: coffee, collecting coffee mugs, and having the reminder to “live the message” right in front of me.
If there is enough interest, I can order a good bunch of these bad boys. Twenty percent of sales, or any income that this project @movemaine makes is contributed to a Maine based nonprofit creating positive impact in the world of health and movement/active lifestyle. Profits from this will go toward a project called “Countdown to a Healthy Maine”. This project spreads an incredible message about healthy eating, active lifestyle, and is helping combat childhood obesity in our state. What is not to love about that?
s/o to the cutest darn audience member ever. We had such a great time making new friends at @backyardon5th last month! We’ll be back August 31.✌️

Thinking fondly of my coworker that distributed these to some of her closest friends at work this week. She left her mark at Whole Foods as a sign maker: an artist and a team member that always offered support from her creative office. It's a hidden blessing that her position was dissolved; she's been battling cancer for quite some time. Now, she continues to share her love of art through powerful words, and connecting relationships through gratitude. Please send prayer, reiki, and good thoughts to her as she enjoys her time and continues to make all the difference through her light. #rawstrength#courage#theartofliving#impressionableminds
