Entrepreneurs must be willing to be MISUNDERSTOOD for LONG periods of TIME. ~ Jeff Bezos (Amazon)

Turning 49 did something to my thought process concerning my future goals. You know, having the mentality of, “this is my life now.” Why I wouldn’t think it’s “my life,” blows me away. 🖤
I’ve lived my daily grind allowing others opinions to take me off my course as I got caught up in their dreams and visions. Allowing myself to sway here and there. I always “joined” a company with a hope of being able to help others. Sincerely, and I’ve helped many of you🥰. 🖤
So what does a licensed cosmetologist do? 3300 credit hours on skin, nails and hair! Still paying a student loan. Having carpal tunnel and not able to spend more than an hour with hair tools or it flares up. Why, after graduating in Alabama, not having enough credit hours for Kentucky, went back to school to be able to do what I love...making others feel beautiful. 🖤
I tell you what I do! Not allow carpal tunnel to stop me. So, now I’m a licensed Cosmetologist in Makeup Artistry. 🖤
Know this...if I don’t stay with a company there is good reason why. It’s not because I’m bored! It could be the products, injury where I can’t do the business, or
I don’t like how the comp plan is working and it can’t be changed. 🖤
This is MY future. This is YOUR future. Put on blinders, ear plugs and keep moving in the direction you have a passion for. Be willing to face the fact you will be MISUNDERSTOOD and that’s OK! Just keep moving toward your goals!!!

Feeling better

So yesterday was my birthday and I completely refused to celebrate. I always love celebrating Jack's and Jensen's birthdays and doing something special but never a fan of a day for me. I didn't let the hubby buy a present or card or anything but he managed to talk me into at least getting a takeaway.

To be honest I had a melt down last night because this week has been extremely stressful. If you have seen my stories this week you will know that I have been helping my aunt's condense my nans 60 years of hoarding. The reason is because one of my aunt's lives with my nan and she has cancer with only a year left 😭. My nan has had help from social workers and they have found her an assisted flat so she is in a place before anything happens with my aunt. Anyway I didn't realise till yesterday actually how upsetting and hard it's been because I never slowed down long enough to think about it till last night.
I can't put into words how much it has helped opening up to not only Jack but also seeing two friends today and them listening. I feel so much better letting myself feel all the feels and opening up. I have non stop smiled and laughed today and they made me realise that actually a little bit of celebration for my birthday is ok and I deserve it. Love my little family and friends ❤❤

This is real life. This is probaly the most vulnerable post I’ve made because not everything is rainbows and sunshine! (I wish) Yesterday was a bad day. Nothing went the way I wanted it to. It was just a meltdown day for both the kids and myself! It was just one of those f*** it days. The house looked like a tornado came through. Stressed/Exhausted from feeling like I need to do/ be it all. Being a mom is hard, being a wife is hard, being a business owner is hard. Asking for help or a break is not something I’m good about doing. I spent most of the day questioning myself, feeling guilt about telling the kids don’t do this, don’t do that, am I doing enough, not working out and not being terrible on food choices but knowing I could’ve done better. I spent the day hoping the kids bedtime would go smooth because mommy was exhausted, desperately needing time to herself, to pour a glass of wine and just to take a deep breath. Thankfully the kids did go to bed well. I sat on the couch eating ice cream, drinking wine and eating popcorn and it honestly for a minute I didn’t feel shameful! 🤷‍♀️ I went to bed reminding myself we all have bad days and tomorrow is a new day! I said Ashley pick yourself up and get it together. It’s okay! Today is a new day and it’s going so much better. Food choices on point, workout done! The endorphins from exercise really is the best form of therapy for me! The whole point is that one bad day doesn’t define you. Don’t just give up on yourself cuz you are worth it! Today Is a fresh start and just keep going! #motherhood #momminainteasy #keepingitreal #exercise #transform20 #keepgoing# tomorrow insane weather

In the midst of beautifully decorated tables and homes full of pristine holiday views- I give you reality at the Nifong’s😆 it’s noon. And we’re singing loudly, rough housing with the dog and the washing machine’s on its third load. I can’t see the couch or half the floor in my room. It’s loud and messy. Oh sure, It’ll get straightened up eventually and I’ll scrape the oatmeal ( #concrete) outta the pot. I might even put pants on some kids and brush their hair🤔 but let’s not get too crazy🤪 Maybe you needed to see a bit of our chaos today because you’re in the midst of it too? Beauty takes a lot of different forms doesn’t it? Running my race, keeping in my lane, faithful to what I’m called to is the best kinda beauty tho💜

This is why I’m so excited to be exhibiting at West Horsley next week.
They uphold their values and aren’t scared to have an empty space.
This is so important and fantastic to see. People like me who make their products slave over the tiniest of details, because we care so much and love what we do.
I’m currently sewing a pile of zip pouches! So excited!! 💖💖💖

I just wanted one good picture of these two together. Just one. Is that too much to ask? And this was the best of the batch. 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ It’s real life though, so I’m keeping it!

I hoped to get information about my upcoming Black Friday sale to you all today but these kids have decided not to let me work. So, MONDAY! There’s a little something for past and future clients, so be on the lookout.

Now, go have a happy weekend, friends! Hope it’s filled with minimal tears and tantrums and plenty of rest and laughter. ✨

Just popping in to remind you to be kinder to yourself❤️⁣

Too many of us are so hard on ourselves, we’re human it’s natural but it’s something we need to work on!!⁣

Next time you catch yourself picking out something you think is wrong with you STOP and tell yourself 3 things you like about yourself💗⁣

What’s something you like about yourself? It can be anything from your eyes to how you make people laugh🙌⁣

Favorite new obstacle. 😃 Took me a couple tries to get it....thought you might enjoy the process. 😂 I love playing at @thewarriorfactory with my babies....it’s quality time, and there is always a chance to show them how to laugh and keep getting up when you fall. So what if it isn’t always perfect? Have fun and be persistent till you make it....Isn’t that what it’s all about? 😊 #qualitytime #family #learning #lifelessons #mom #momlife #mystory #ninja #jegnaninja #anw12 #liveandlearn #failfriday #fail #success #motivation #keepgoing #learntolaugh #justhavefun #authentic #keepingitreal #grow #progress #enjoylife #relax #girlsjustwannahavefun #practicemakesprogress #progressnotperfection #laugh

2020 is the start of a new decade.  First pic is 2009, I quit weighing myself and I am not sure if this is my heaviest.  Second pic is weds as I was excited to fit in super skinny size 6 jeans.  I still have more to lose, but I am praying and working toward a healthier and more active 2020.  #dothehardthings #workinprogress #workout #workoutmotivation #youcantoutexerciseabaddiet #gettingfitafter50 #weightlossjourney #sickandtiredofbeingsickandtired #fatgirlfedup #dietandexercise #lchf #ketoweightloss #ketofatloss #ketoweightlossjourney #ketoresults #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #ketotransformation #keepingitreal #icandoallthingsthroughchrist #hiitworkout #teamtraining #teamtraininglifechanging #lifeafter50 #stayactive #intermittentfasting #intermittentfastingresults #intermittentfastinglifestyle

Good friend sent this to me and had to share this wisdom and perspective we all could do better. Our days are limited & Life is too short for big egos, likes and followers. Putting pride aside and upholding human value is important. Good energy is always best for the soul. Go live life and make bigger impacts on humans and friendships in person and in all connections possible . #impact #influencers #beyou #keepingitreal #imperfections #thegoodstuff #kindness #musicislife #reminders #morethanquotes #boundaries #selfcare #sharing #laughing #loving #instagram #followers #2019 #mytwocents #kindness
#dailydose #value #favorite #family #love #friendship #places #humans #words #quotes @amyweatherly 💕👏🏻Don’t under-value friends who laugh with you.
Don’t under-value friends who order dessert with you.
Don’t under-value friends who drop by in a moment’s notice and have coffee with you.
Don’t under-value friends who tell you when you have pepper in your teeth.
Don’t under-value friends who get the pepper out of your teeth themselves when you can’t find it.
Don’t under-value friends who tell you the truth.
Don’t under-value friends who love your messy kids like their own.
Don’t under-value friends who show up for you.
Don’t under-value friends who encourage you.
Don’t under-value friends who let you vent without judgement.
Don’t under-value friends who ask how you’re doing and then listen.
Don’t under-value friends who get your sense of humor.
Don’t under-value friends who celebrate with you.
Don’t under-value friends who stop you from buying that absolutely hideous dress.
Don’t under-value friends who jam in the car and lip sync like crazy on road trips with you in your own version of Carpool Karaoke.
Don’t under-value friends who accept you exactly how you are!! We are all imperfect humans .. take value in good ones. People are not going to remember you how you are on a platform or how popular you are , people are going to remember how you are in real life & how you treat them and actually impacted their life. Sending love and light 💛

Surround yourself with wonderful humans that get you even when you don’t get yourself. The ones that make you smile, laugh, support you, encourage you and celebrate the big and small wins. They are out there and they will change your life ❤️
This morning I woke up to this thoughtful message from my Mom and it reminded me of how many amazing women I have in my life and I am forever grateful for the difference they have made. “From time to time, there arise among human beings, people, who seem to exude love as naturally as the sun gives out heat” @olnband

Phases change like that of the moon,
And because of her they rose again...
To where the mountains met the moon.
.
2nd pic is cuz #keepingitreal with y'all & it's slightly better quality, although they're both pretty crappy, cuz I realised I took it out of focus. #lovethat.
But ya know, maybe that was the the #aesthetic I was going for 🤷‍♀️😉. So I embraced it & added some classic grain 👍🏼.

Breakfast • the 1st thing my little one thinks about when she wakes up...😅 and more food when she wakes up from her nap. Can't have a hangry baby bear ☺️



What's your little ones favorites meal of the day? Or are they just an all day snacker??

Growing up, I thought it'd be cool to have kids. But I never was one of those people who thought they were born to be a mama. As a little girl, I hated dolls and playing make-believe. I preferred books and riding my bike. And when I struggled to get pregnant, I thought, "meh...whatever." I was frustrated with the process and assumed I wasn't meant to have kids.
.
But finding out I was pregnant was one of the most exciting days of my life. Then when he was born, I couldn't help but stare at him from across the room in the hospital, thinking, "holy shit, he's mine." In the immediate weeks after delivery, I never felt guilty for asking for help or for making sure I took care of myself AND my baby. Thankfully, I've got some amazing mom friends who paved the path for me, and showed that it's ok to love yourself and your baby simultaneously.
.
At 4 months postpartum, I'm just winging this motherhood thing: I occasionally co-sleep...I feed him formula...I let him nap on his tummy...I put him down so I can pee and fix my hair...I hire a sitter to get a workout in...I hand him to dad when I'm feeling overwhelmed...I blast music in the car so I don't hear his sad little cries from the back. And I shower this sweet little baby with more love than I ever thought possible.
.
Turns out motherhood isn't about perfection - it's about love and doing what feels right. And I'm damn proud of myself. To all the moms out there: you're doing great. And you're allowed to be damn proud of yourselves too. #postpartumjourney

A world of opportunities opens-up when one turns 50. We don't sweat the little things anymore. We’ve been there and done that. We know and we understand. We are not influenced or persuaded. There is a wonderful self-confidence that a woman comes into after 50. We say what we want to say and do what we want to do. Now i understand why my mother use to tell everyone her age. She was proud of it and the woman she had become. She made me feel safe and that nothing could harm me. She was a woman over 50 and a force to be reckoned with. .
Over 50 is a right of passage with an awakening to make life exactly what we want it to be.
Don’t worry about what others may think of you. It doesn’t matter. Be want you want. Wear what you want. Create the life of your dreams and don’t let anyone stop you. You are a force to be reckoned with too, so live out loud and be unapologetic about it 💃🏼. .

Actually don’t call me Shirley, please. Anyway, that’s beside the point. In the past, I’ve documented myself in a photo the moment my following has hit a milestone number, and this is me when I saw the number hit 30K. I’m in bed getting ready to go to sleep. It’s 8:53pm in case you’re wondering how lit it is to be an “influencer”. When I hit 10k I was pumping breastmilk...at least I’m staying on brand.

So...I started this page about 11 months ago with a handful of family and friends following me. I’d been blogging about my son with Leukemia and wanted a medium to experiment more with writing, with the hope that a larger audience might enjoy it, and before I knew it, I was dancing and flashing my pregnant belly to anyone on social media who wanted to see. The internet is a weird place, yo. Anyway, I felt incredibly vulnerable early on. I didn’t know my direction or where I was going and, honestly, I still don’t, but I did learn this: whatever your message is, if you deliver it in a way that is genuine, raw, honest and, if you can squeeze a few jokes into the mix, people will relate. Most of the best things in my life have come from times I’ve made myself uncomfortable and vulnerable; saying “I love you” for the first time, asking for a raise, speaking your mind to someone you’ve always wanted to say something to, running your best mile, catching a stranger off guard with an irreverent joke that makes them laugh hard, being a parent, the list goes on...what I’m saying is, I’m a totally normal person (like outside of being a little bit fucking nuts) and I’m just feeling really grateful and happy I followed my heart and ended up here laughing and connecting with so many of you. I can’t tell you, not only how rewarding this Instagram experience has been, but how deeply flattered I am to have people here following. Thanks guys!
