Glad I Don’t Look Like What I’ve Been Through! 💋

Glad I don’t look like:

🔅Depression/Anxiety

🔅Worrying over an Incarcerated child

🔅Fear/Doubt

🔅Suicide

🔅Chronic Pain

🔅Brokenness

🔅Procrastination

🔅Tiredness

🔅Sleepless Nights

Nope it hasn’t been easy, and yes I have cried my pretty little eyelashes off! But I got up and decided one day that I no longer like the sad woman I saw in the mirror! And I finally needed to do something about it, so I got off my butt and NOW….

I love ❤️ the way I look, happy, confident, strong, and free!

Yesssss….free!

Free from caring about what people think of me, my illness, my sobriety, my businesses, my child, and my relationships, HELL MY LIFE!

We have to learn how to dance even when it’s raining, remember the tears we shed are watering our seeds of growth!

Don’t let 2019 keep you stuck the same way 2018 did!

Stop suffering alone and in silence!

As we come to the last Sunday of this year, decide what you want different in the new year!

Decide that you will get up, get dress, and show out!!!

You deserve to be happy and free!

Let’s #upgrade and go after everything God promised!

Are you ready!??????

Self-Care isn’t Selfish…it’s ok to Reward Yourself ☺️👇🏾

Good Morning friends,

Today I am going to treat myself!

Thank you for the opportunity to do something special “just because.”

Thank you for giving me the chance to reward myself just for being me.

I am grateful for these little joys and for the ability to recognize that I am worthy of pampering.

My life is special, and today I am thankful for the chance to rejoice in myself.

Now, I haven’t decided what I’m going to do yet!

I just know whatever I do I deserve to do it, and will not be told I’m being selfish. 😃

What do you feel like doing but didn’t want to take the time to do?

Happy Tuesday Luvs,

Olivia💋

What she said about working with me👇🏾

I owe more than great gratitude to Olivia B. Shepherd for helping me regain my freedom and my life back again. I’ve always worried very much but things got much worse with time and at my lowest point, I couldn’t stand large crowds and was afraid of driving alone. The only place I felt safe was around my family. My mom heard about Olivia from a friend and got me signed up. Everything has been a fairytale ever since. She has equipped me with techniques to deal with my depression and anxiety issues. Her love and support has helped cast worries and fear out of my life. I can’t put a price on the assistance I’ve got so far, you are a God send Olivia. Loads of thanks!

Wellness Wednesday: 3 Simple Ways to Get Sleep

🤔Picture this: It’s 5:27 PM. You’re hungry after a busy day at work, itching to get home to see your family, and now you’re stuck in traffic. Frustration sets in. But you’re used to it since this is an every day occurrence.

So you finally stroll into your house at 6:04 PM, your 2 young children are clamoring for your attention, and they’re hungry too. You pop some frozen dinners in the microwave knowing full well they’re not healthy, but also knowing that you just don’t have time to think, much less cook. After a quick dinner consisting of Salisbury Steak you’re day’s not even close to over.

Now it’s time to do laundry, read with the kids, and of course a day’s work left over from the office. When do you have time to rest? At night you keep telling yourself.

But every night it’s the same old story. You flop into bed past 1 AM and close your eyes. Your mind is still racing from the day that just passed and the busy day ahead. So you toss and turn, hoping that you’ll be able to get at least a little shut-eye before your 6:00 AM wake up call (an annoyingly loud alarm clock

you’ve had for 15 years).

And the next day it starts all over again. You’re tired at work, you don’t have time to eat, you’re stressed, and you can’t get out of the vicious cycle.

So what do you do?

First thing’s first: take a deep breath. You’re probably stressed out just reading this far.☺️

To get a more restful sleep tonight do the following:

😴1) Get a notebook and take 5 minutes right before laying down to free write. What you want to do is get every thought from the past, present, and future out of your head and on paper where it’s safe and secure. This will free the clutter from your head and allow you to rest easier.

😴2) Get a new alarm clock that wakes you up gradually with classical music. This will do absolute wonders for your morning routine. What you want to do is set the alarm to go off 15-20 minutes earlier than you usually wake up. It will turn on very quietly and slowly bring you out of your slumber.

😴3) Add a few very healthy snacks to your daily routine. One of my favorites is a 2 oz pre-packaged bag of baby carrots. They taste good, they’re good for you, and they take no prep-time. When you’re hungry at work or on the way home, munch on these. Another great snack is raw almonds. Eating healthier works

amazingly well to help you sleep better.

Please use these 3 simple tips to enjoy a more restful sleep tonight.

Not sure if they will help much since I’m up at 4 a.m. writing this, lol!

Sleep well,

Olivia

Self~Love Day4 Know Your Body

#selfloveday4

#knowyourbody

🔅If you are struggling to love your body or yourself, here are 5 things to stop 🛑 doing to yourself:

1. Stop letting a comment from someone else determine how you should feel about your body, heck they may need help with their look too😉

2. Stop waiting to reach a certain weight goal before you enjoy your body, embrace all of you, the skinny you, the big you, all of you!

3. Stop hanging with friends that judge their bodies and are constantly fat shaming others, this is a major ‘no-no’!

4. Stop thinking God gave you the wrong body, child please….God doesn’t make mistakes🙌🏾

5. Lastly, Stop blaming your body for the bad things in your life, that’s just your mindset and you definitely need to change your way of thinking Now!
