The Butterfly Effect 🦋🦋🦋 Never underestimate your own or someone elses small actions. What may seem insignificant could be life altering for everyone. We leave traces of ourselves with whoever we see & wherever we go.
Small influences & gestures make big impacts💖. These are the connections that I remember and cherish. These are the connections to build on. It's all about the little things that create the big ones. "You may think that you are completely insignificant in this world. But someone drinks coffee every morning from their favorite cup that you gave them. Someone heard a song on the radio that reminds them of you. Someone reads a book you recommended, and plunged headfirst into it. Someone remembered your joke and smiled, returning home from work in the evening. Someone loves himself a little more because you gave them a compliment. Never think that you have no Influence whatsoever. Your trace, which you leave behind with even a few good deeds, can not be erased" -Christina Makeyeva

If you haven’t seen my story you need to! This #transformationtuesday I wanted to share something different ❤️ A few years ago our family was ripped apart the absolute worst thing that could ever happen to your kids happened to mine. I almost lost them to foster care. The were gone for 6 months! Doesn’t seem like a lifetime but for me and my girls the fear, sadness and anger still scar us. We have come a long way in overcoming and growing closer than ever before. When tragedy strikes you either come together or fall apart and I certainly #refuse to fall apart. We all went to therapy I was put on anxiety and depression medication.
After I got them back from the state, my sister reached out to me about this program.. that I had already done ✅ but big sisters know best right? So I started to workout which led to wanting and needing personal development... I just wasn’t feeling better even with the medication and I needed to get better for the girls and myself! The books started to change my life.. and thus my daughters lives #rippleeffect ❤️❤️ I started last year in January writing them a morning affirmations and a lunch note of encouragement and love. I did forget some days but almost daily! We have a grateful notebook for the dinner table we write one thing we are grateful for and if we have anyone or anything we need to pray about we also do that every night (almost, as I said not perfect 😉) Fast forward to this morning... my 7 year old came upstairs and wrote ME a note and an affirmation for the day... 💕💕💕💕💕💕 then I go downstairs and they had both made ME breakfast and coffee and they had whipped cream, chocolate syrup, sprinkles and marshmallows in case I wanted them in my coffee ❤️❤️❤️ I can’t even begin to tell you just how much joy, and happiness I still feel! I’m just one beaming #singlemomma
Happy transformation Tuesday! I would love to share more of my transformation with you and see if I can get you started on yours today!! Everyone deserves happiness and health 🌺
Me laughing @ all the work I have to do today for the @indyactsofkindness relaunch 🙃🤩😬 If you watched my story, you know I’ve got some big news coming for @indyactsofkindness!!! 😍
I know I’ve been teasing this for a while and haven’t given you much info yet, so here are some secrets to get ya excited 😘
1. I’m announcing the OFFICIAL relaunch date this week here & on the @indyactsofkindness Instagram! So stay tuned for thattttt
2. No, it is not going to be “Austin Acts of Kindness.” Good guess! But, incorrect.
3. We ARE, however, getting a new name, a new website, new logo, & new branding!!!! And a buncha other fun stuff but that’s still a secret! 🤩🤫🤓
4. Insta & Facebook will be a big part of the launch, so follow @indyactsofkindness & like Indy Acts of Kindness on Facebook!!! You’ll be able to watch the whole relaunch unfold perfectly (or fall on its face...time will tell 🤞🏼😬) In any case, thanks for all your support & excitement for #IndyActsofKindness! It has been my baby for about 4 years and your support throughout the whole process means so much...it really couldn’t have happened without your involvement. We all just wanna make the world a better place out here, ya feel?
Not every day is happy and healthy and that’s okay. I strive to live a healthy lifestyle and practice what I preach but I also give myself permission not to force it. Our furnace is out and I have been experiencing some major neck pain for the last few days which leaves me irritable, tired and unmotivated. I sit here with my new favorite accessory, yes it’s supposed to be used for washing your face or wearing a mask but hey it’s bringing me a little joy on this cold, dreary achy day. Some days we just have to accept that we won’t feel our best and know that it’s okay. Stay cozy my friends 💕
Inspire other people by telling them your story, give an impact to their lives. Be passionate! We don't know what kind of problems they are facing, but one thing is for sure, your testimonies can help them decide if they should quit or continue the race. These people might encounter the same person who are facing depression, and what you did to them will ripple a thousand times.

Ahh first day back in England ☺️ who knows what day it is of the self care challenge we’re on!? (time zones 💁🏼♀️) but it’s definitely still going! This is how I casually let this spill over on into forever for the rest of your life 😁 Today feels like one of those jet lag days where just being awake is an accomplishment, so we are calling it a win ✅ Appreciating the slower pace here where everyone walks and bikes around. Changing fall colors on gorgeous old houses and the amazing @thetrialsofcato performing on the corner here in town. #itsagoodday ✨ How are you nurturing yourself and making the most of today?! ✨
