  • Your purpose must be LARGER than your PERCEIVED fear of embarrassment. 
_
The word “embarrassment” has suppressed so many dreams from being activated. I understand the power it can yield on one’s mind but remember 3 things: 
_
1. It’s ASSUMED embarrassment. Nothing has EVEN happened yet, you haven’t even started but you are projecting your fears into an assumed future scenario. Stop your suffering!
_
2. The faster you realize even the ones that look like they have it all together are ALL MAKING THIS UP AS WE GO ALONG! I put my dreams out there and could be worried about embarrassment but my BELIEF of the dream is MORE important than any “potential” fall out. I’m making this up as I go & that’s how I win or learn - NEVER LOSE! 
_
3. The universe rewards “TRYERS” and reassures “BYSTANDERS”. If you try, you’ve done the hardest part and there will be something to gain and learn. On the other hand, the universe gives “bystanders” that reassuring feeling that they are right where they should be —— on the damn sideline! 
_
TAKEAWAY: Courage creates confidence! Do something small that makes you nervous, then expand a bit and do it again. Rinse and repeat this process and you will begin to build confidence through experience. 
_
TAG ONE THAT NEEDS THIS MESSAGE AND TELL ME IF YOU ARE A “TRYER” or a “BYSTANDER”

  • I can’t believe it has been 6 years since we started this journey of life together! Looking back at the last 6 years I would have never of thought I would do so much with someone, I never thought we would be married with our beautiful daughter and our fur baby. Looking back at all the pictures of the places we went  throughout the years have brought back so many great memories and I can’t wait to make even more with you as we continue our life together! I love you more everyday and thank you so much be apart of life!

  • Nine years ago today I left Alaska with an overpacked Subaru, two dogs, a cat and a very patient brother; we traveled the Alaskan-Canadian highway, ending up in Wyoming, where I made it exactly three weeks before I cracked. Wyoming led to Idaho and Idaho planted the seed that would bring me back to a small mountain town that was to became a pivotal chapter in my life. Looking back now, from the slopes of Haleakala, on the beautiful island of Maui, it’s hard to express how I feel about everything. Nothing turned out the way I planned, yet I accomplished every goal I set out to, even if it often felt like I was spinning my wheels. I’m not where I thought I would be, yet I’m exactly where I should be, and more importantly, where I WANT to be. From a magical, glittery, snowbound highway in the middle of nowhere, to an island paradise far out to sea. A lot can happen in nine years; I wonder what this next year will bring... #anniversary #tookthelongwayround #getout #goplaces #takeachance #alwaysanalaskangirl #thingstaketime #trustthejourney #lifeiswhathappens #journeyfar #notellinghowfarillgo #newchapter #whereiwanttobe #whoiwanttobe #yougetwhatyouneed #blessed

  • I have been taking Ketones for 3 months now.. I can feel how much life has changed for me..
But  truth is, I couldn’t really “see” it. Not until  recently. And I saw it.. my eyes and my smile... they speak something different.. Past Krystina—
😐Content faking it, 😐content in her depression, 😐struggling with bulimia and dropped to my lowest weight. 😐no self-esteem, and thought life was just going to be okay. 😐Working 3-4 jobs and still barely making ends meet. ... I was okay with where I was. My smile said all of the above, but mostly it was my mask. 
Krystina today.. well she’s a whole new person. 💗Smiling like there’s tomorrow and feels so much happiness! 💗No longer on anti-depressants ( first time in 17 years.!!) 💗finally able to say NO to things that don’t bring me joy and fill my cup
💗 Down 10 pounds! All healthy weight loss!
💗 Energy and can keep up with my twin toddlers! Can we say yes please???!
💗And finally able to laugh, so hard, at so much more! 
I don’t remember the last time I was able to wake up and feel so much gratitude and joy at another day. 
I have always searched for something that could fill my cup and allow me to change peoples lives.. but I NEVER in a million years thought it would be the same thing or company. 
You see guys.. I found Ketones when I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. 
If you haven’t tried Ketones, I encourage you to ask yourself why? What’s holding you back from trying an experience pack?

So are you ready to feel better?

  • Raise your hand if you think communication and extending grace is important in marriage 🖐🏼
.
This week zac and I have had opposite schedules and I don’t mean that in a way of we haven’t been together or around one another but I mean that he has worked four to five 12 hour days this week while I’ve had maybe one Starbucks shift and teaching OFF. .
.
If I’m being honest, sometimes I let guilt slide into my thoughts like “wow Kelsey you have a week off of work and summers off and he works M-F all year, he must work harder, he provides more...” and I let myself feel like I shouldn’t enjoy my time off while he’s busting his butt at work... this also is a LIE! .
.
God has called me to teaching and with that it means extra time off than most jobs. But it’s how I choose to spend that time that matters. Every career path is important, being a teacher isn’t less work just because I have more time off than others and I shouldn’t feel bad about it. .
.
Zac although wishes he had the time off that I do, doesn’t come home expecting me to greet him in an apron, and baked cookies everyday. Matters of fact: tonight I had a headache was on the couch when he got home after a 14 hour day and he STILL MADE DINNER! .
.
Some days I pick up the slack, other days he picks it up. We are a team, we support each other. As often as I nag him to clean up his clothes, I’m right beside him realizing how much bathroom beauty products I have laying everywhere. .
Between the two of us if I’m being honest, I nag him more. This week I realized how much grace and support he really does extend me. (and other weeks the roles are reversed)
.
If I want to travel, but he can’t get the time off of work he still graciously says “go anyways.”✈️
If I need something for the house or just want to buy a new book or journal to make me feel good he doesn’t question it. 📖
.
.
If I have 15 lotions 🧴, 3 different types of shampoo, and Bobby pins all over the house he often ignores it.🤷🏻‍♀️🙌🏼
.
.
PSA: marriage hack for communication and expectations: sync your calendars if y’all have busy lives! 📆best thing we could have done. (Still a working progress) but has helped keep our marriage and proper balance.

  • It's not easy making changes, taking steps forward. Starting something new whether it be in your personal life or professional is scary but it's worth it! Wondering if you're doing the right thing in the right way...
. Wondering if it's going to work out and be a positive addition to your life. We can drive ourself crazy with all these thoughts and get frozen in place by fear or we can take a leap of faith and leaen how to fly on the way down. If we never take chances and risks we will never get anywhere or have anything. #takeachance #hustle #chooselove #selflove #movingup

  • I remember when I was first getting started with ecom. I didn’t know much at all about it tbh but I knew I needed to learn fast. At the time I had an old beat up MacBook that hardly would stay charged smh getting anything done was sooooo tedious and at the end of it.. I would have a massive headache from trying to get the smallest tasks done. It was annoying af but when ur broke and don’t have options for expensive new things... you have to make do with what you have! ⁣⁣
⁣I say this to say... I’ve been thru hell and back with my ecom businesses. They didn’t come easy but thru it all two things remained constant. My will to succeed and my resourcefulness. 💪🏽 no matter how hard it got I knew the light at the end of the tunnel would make it all worth it. I vowed my first purchase once I had some money coming in would be a new MacBook so that I could be more effective with my studies. It’s all about baby steps guys. I don’t come from money... didn’t grow up with expensive things... I literally found a way out of nothing. But my will to learn and do better not only got me my MacBook but it got me a skill that I can use forever to make me money! 🙏🏽⁣⁣
I’ll never forget these days. Watching YouTube videos from my iPhone until my eyes were heavy. I was so determined! There’s only one difference between ppl like me and some of you out there reading this. I take action! I’m willing to spend my last over n over to learn something new. At the end of the day it pays off every single time. Believe in yourself guys. Set a goal and light some fire under your ass till you achieve it! Next time you look down at your phone... ask yourself if your using it to make money or to talk shit with ur homegirls... to stalk your exes or to take senseless selfies all day 🙃 there’s only one difference you guys... I learned to use the tools that I’m given and make the most of them and you can too! Believe that!
