- 10/16/2017. New wings for the same Jilli. 🙂 I really, really do love you, #RockTape. I think I have legitimate feelings for an inanimate object, and it’s weird. 😂😳 Bahahaha. Stay forever, so I don’t have to cry. kthanksbye. #suckit #hypermobility 💪🏼 #keepgoing #keeptrying
- For the past month I've been unnecessarily stressing (yes, I do that) about her not being "at grade level" for reading and spelling. Well, HOGWASH! She loves to pull books out, pack them in her bag, and take them to bed too. She isn't afraid to ask for help when she needs it. That shows confidence, motivation, and a LOVE for reading, and I'll take it. Then tonight she told me she wants to write a book and a play. When I told her she could totally do it she said, "I know! I've already started!" Sometimes (actually, a lot of the time) I need to have more faith in the path the Lord has asked my family to take. As much as I enjoy homeschooling, it's hard, time-consuming, and I feel inadequate in balancing it all most of the time. I love it, but it's a challenge. Many days I've wondered if we're doing the right thing. But then I remember, it wasn't my choice. It was God's. Nights like tonight remind me that God knows best. He knows when it's all going to come together. He knows why He asks us to take certain paths. As long as I'm a prayerful mother who follows through on promptings, I'll be the mother my kids need me to be. And they are going to be more than fine. #takethatdyslexia #specialsophianoel #homeschool #trustGod #parenting #faith #read #christianmom #keepingitreal #youareenough #keepgoing #keeptrying #specialneedskids #amazing #writer #sheinspiresme #mykidsteachme #courage #brave
- This is important!
As humans it's very easy to get hung up and your accent when speaking another language. An accent shows you're brace enough to try. Wear it as a badge of honour not shame. (A lesson I need to learn myself)
- Today I found courage within myself to overcome the very thing that paralyzed my progress, fear.
I have started and never finished this program. It’s tough, it requires you to push yourself for you, to set aside doubt, and encourages you to get better. I started it 3 times, each time I made it one week further in the program.
Today was the first day of the last week of the program. I full expected it to be challenging and I literally had to coach myself through it; one round down, two to go, 60 seconds, 45 seconds, 30 seconds, finish it, finish strong, the burn means it’s working, it means you are changing, it means you are getting better!
I made it through, I conquered my doubt, I embraced the burn, I grunted but I finished it! I had to dig deeper within myself to pull myself up from my fear, to prove to myself what is possible, to show myself what hard work, effort and dedication looks like. It’s in me, it’s in you. It may not be a workout program for you, but whatever that fear is, move toward it, one step at a time, keep trying, don’t give up. Here is a hand to hold through your process. Let’s get better. 😊 #fear #doubt #overcome #keeptrying #progressnotperfection #changebeginswithme #leadbyexample #letsdothis #letsgetbetter #ibelieveinyou
- It's easy to get discouraged when things don't go according to plan. Stop, rest and start again. Keep your eyes on the prize. It'll be worth it 😊
