I’ve always been that type of girl that can’t take a compliment. My friends would tell me that I look great, and I’d tell them I look like a beached whale. My husband would tell me I’m hot, and I’d tell him to get his eyes checked. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin thanks to plenty of emotional trauma from childhood.
.
Today I put on these shorts ((thanks to global warming and the fact that it’s 80 degrees in Virginia Beach)) and I DID NOT body shame myself 🤩 I haven’t worn these since 2016 since I was pregnant basically all last year and was terrified to even try them on, but they fit! And even though I know I still have goals I want to achieve and cellulite to get rid of, I’m proud of myself 💁🏼‍♀️ The inner badass in me did a little cheer at the park and at Aubrey’s karate lesson when I didn’t try to hide myself.
.
I promise you, this didn’t happen overnight. It’s taken almost a year of personal development and I still have days when I revert back to hating myself, yet I continue to press forward. Failure only truly happens when you quit and I strive to not do that. What is stopping you from loving yourself?!

Cali got a mouse this evening. She meows at the doors until I come out and showed me her prized possession. Who knew a sweet kitty could be so vicious! #catsofinstagram  #calithecat  #cali  #mysweetkitten  #protectorofthehouse  #catmommalife  #catmomma

In case you’re new to the scene here, I love Nicolas Cage. 😍 Like a lot.
Today is his birthday so *clearly* I have to watch at least one of his movies. This was the first one to come up on Netflix so I went with it. 🤗

Aspen the kitty 💕💕 #inktoberday29  it was national cat day the other day and I'm so blessed with this angel. Unfortunately, there was a pen explosion on the original, but it's just for me so I cut it out and made a little new picture. I was upset but aspen seemed to not mind😽 edit: I'm sad that her face got cut out of the pic with her and i don't think I can fix it ::/#inktober #inktober2017 #kittycat #aspenthecat #catdrawing #kittydrawing #inkdrawing #pendrawing #catillustration #cutekitty #kittycutie  she has #extrabeans  #toebeans #greykitty #tortoiseshellcat #aspen #sketch #catsketch #catmomma #kittylove #catlady #bestfriend #petportrait  #petdrawing #nationalcatday #catlovers #drawingoftheday  listening to #jonbellion #cutepet #inkdrawing #

This year has definitely been difficult and though I have many reasons to be upset I want to stay positive and be thankful for who I do have in my life. My amazing boyfriend who always seems to get me through the dark, my 3 beautiful sisters that'll be by my side till I die and my daughter who though is gone I will always have the privilege of being in her life❤ .
