  • Life is busy. Not everything on your to do list is going to get done. And that’s OK. Take this as a gentle reminder to practice some self kindness/compassion and realize that you are doing your best - even if your kid wore pink on red and green shirt day.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Self compassion has been a game changer for my life and something I try to instil in our kids. If you’re interested in learning more, I’ve linked an article from psychology today in my bio for you to read.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve also quoted the 5 ways they mentioned to cultivated self compassion. Swipe ⬅️ to read those.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have an incredible Monday friends!✌🏻💕

  • What is your powers this Christmas?
Duke and Dylan @okidokiduke @ardentdylan would like to share to you all how you can have "sharing powers" !!! Being a stay at home mom I cannot give the most expensive toys my children want! But I can give them priceless gifts like my time and our playtime family bonding moments.

This Christmas I want my children to learn the real meaning of the season. That we can have a meaningful celebration if our hearts will be filled with gratitude and generosity. 
We enjoyed wrapping the gifts and I am so proud of Duke because at an early age he learned the art of Giving.We went to our storage room and got his old toys... at first he said that's mine mommy! But afterwards he said ok he will give it to the other kids this Christmas. 
Best reward for a stay at home career is to see your children grow up responsibly, happily and with so much love in their hearts. 3yo Duke made me feel nakapagpagraduate na ako ng college hehe. 
Thanks teacher @leilea2 for introducing to us the Christmas project of @project.ki.d.s 🎄❤️ See comments for the step by step procedure to join.

  • The past 2 weeks have been jam packed, full of celebrations, gatherings, new experiences, emotions and FOOD. It’s been exactly 2 weeks since the end of my 14-day Conscious Cleanse journey. I actually cut the cleanse 4 days short because it overlapped with a cruise / vacation I went on. That also started my slippery slope of forgoing the food guidelines and goals I set out for myself. While I am very grateful for all these life events, they have brought light (not for the first time) to my tendency to overstuff myself and eat past the point of comfort and peace, especially when I have access to unlimited amount of food. While it is human to overindulge, my hyperfocus on food around food has kept me from being fully present with the people and circumstances around me. Not to mention, there’s physical and mental health consequences to overeating… Interestingly enough, just as I was stuffing my way through a party last night, I had a conversation with another guest about mindfulness and meditation. I was reminded that quieting the mind is indeed the key to freeing yourself from unhealthy thought patterns. Once you no longer act on every thought from your monkey mind, you can align your actions with your best interests pursue your highest joy. No, this conversation did not prevent me from overeating at the party, but it was a much needed reminder for me to keep practicing mindfulness as well as compassion with myself. As emphasized by the @consciouscleanse, there’s no wagon to fall off of. The journey to health, abundance, and peace look different for everyone, and the key is to make it work for you. Celebrate the small wins along the way and be your own biggest cheerleader! #compassion #mindfulness #livelifetothefullest #makememories #eatingaddiction #mindfuleating #balancedeating #cultivatekindness #kindnesstoyourself

  • UNPOPULAR OPINION: FAKING IT TILL YOU MAKE IT IS COMPLETE BS⁣
⁣
You’ll want to save this one 😏⁣
⁣
I wanted to build up my confidence after being doubtful for so long but I didn’t know how. So I did what everyone does and tried to fake it and faked being confident until I actually become confident.⁣
⁣
That DID NOT work! ⁣
⁣
My “confidence” was based on the surface and I did not have my own self worth. ⁣
⁣
It wasn’t until I really started investing in my physical and mental health that I started to ACTUALLY become more confident.⁣
⁣
I know you’ve been there too. You thought you were confident AF but realized you had ZERO self worth. Now you’re like what the heck do I do now? ⁣
⁣
To actually become confident AF you need to figure out who you are and what you’re values are and learn how to be proud! ⁣
⁣
Start a routine that involves, exercising, personal development, and a healthy lifestyle.  That is your first stop to feeling good as hell!

  • Such an INCREDIBLE NIGHT at our women’s Cultivate event. I’ve never cried so much at a woman’s event 😭 I’ve personally never really liked “woman’s events” in the past. They were mostly a lot of frill and fun, not that there’s anything wrong with that but many of them lacked depth, conviction, and left me unchanged for the most part. But these special nights that the women in our leadership put together is above and beyond what I would have imagined a women’s event should look like. We learn together, we worship together, we empower together, we’re convicted together, we give together, and we have SO much fun doing it! This woman’s ministry has changed me and made me realize that we hold some of the best women leadership in the country who love other woman SO well. Gifted and anointed teachers of the word who pray and speak Gods truth over us so that we can be more like Jesus TOGETHER. They speak prophetically over this generation and they know how to intwine our hearts with kindness and love for each other! Kindness changes people and that was the theme of our event. So who’se kindness has changed you? Whoever that person is that popped into your mind, you should let them know. Send them a message, a card, a phone call and express how their kindness stuck with you. #exceptionalkindness #choosekind #cultivatekindness #cultivatewomen

  • I’m popping on to say HI! I hope you’ve had the best Saturday, & also, I have a task for you.

I've been doing it myself for the last few weeks & it's been eye opening in highlighting how we've been conditioned to subvert kindness & subsequently reinforce the epidemic of lacking self worth.

This coming week, every time you receive a compliment, say ‘thank you’ — & nothing else.

Without deflecting. Without throwing a reciprocal nicety right back. Without responding with negative language.

No:

Mehh it needs a cut, though!
Oh nooo I just threw it as I ran out the door *blush*
Oh goodness no, YOU are the beautiful one

Instead, sit with the uncomfortable feeling that creeps up & the need to divert. Notice how the light of being complimented makes you feel. Keep sitting & noticing until the discomfort that comes with totally receiving & believing in the truth of a compliment becomes normal.

I’ve always subconsciously acted as though compliments require either a compliment of equal or higher value back or a stock remark, often plucked from the above list of common compliment come-backs. As if kindness works on a basis of exchange. 
I want to take the focus off me as quickly as I can & because for some reason it's always felt like just a 'thank you' made me 'full of myself'. In reality, it actually undermined the intention of the giver & fed into my own inability to believe in what others might see in me.

But we don’t pay for compliments with reciprocated words we’ve probably pulled up on the spot or with derogatory words towards ourselves. Kindness is free to give but also to receive.

Receiving graciously is an act of kindness to yourself, to the person who saw something lovely in you enough to voice it, & it gives other people chance to follow your lead & be kind THEMselves, too.

Will you try it? I'm going to keep doing it with you.

Say something kind & true about somebody in the comments & give them opportunity to practice!

  • Christmas Vibes on high!
.
Happy Saturday everyone. Hopefully the rain doesn’t have to hard of a bluzy grip on you.
.
With grey clouds and the night sky blanketing us at 16:30 PM! It’s easy to feel like we are encroaching on a tunnel of everlasting darkness.
.
But. We. Aren’t!
.
December 21st officially marks the the day of Winter Solstice!
.
Yes the shortest day of the year is still to come. BUT as soon as it comes, it’s GONE! And that means we begin the steady tilt back TOWARDS the sun.
.
I share this for a few reasons but the number one reason is to help reduce feelings of RESISTANCE.
.
We all experience resistance at times.
Resistance to where we are and what is happening.
Resistance sucks.
Because it’s not what we WANT.
It especially sucks when it’s totally OUT of our CONTROL, like the rotation of the planet, and the effect it has on our experience of daylight.
.
SURRENDER my friends.
Let this be your mantra for the next two weeks.
.——————-.May I Surrender.—————-.
Think of the next two weeks as optimal time to nurture yourself and those you love:
Cook
Sleep
Bathe
Craft
Snuggle
Read
Get Cozy
.
Yes, it’s approaching a busy time of year. Yes there is lots to do in the day. Yes there may be invites and socializing and gatherings to attend.
I am not saying DONT. And if you are craving the social scene then most certainly DO.
.
But also know that it’s ok to show up differently NOW then you would in the heat of summer. In fact it’s NATURAL! If you feel different NOW than any other time of year, that’s OK! Right now, is NOT any other time. It’s not like summer, spring, fall. This is Winter.
.
Let it be winter. Find out what that means to you. How you can surrender to the offerings of the season. And TRUST that in two short weeks, a change will be occurring again.
.
Surrender.
It will be lovely.
.
  • Christmas Vibes on high!
    .
    Happy Saturday everyone. Hopefully the rain doesn’t have to hard of a bluzy grip on you.
    .
    With grey clouds and the night sky blanketing us at 16:30 PM! It’s easy to feel like we are encroaching on a tunnel of everlasting darkness.
    .
    But. We. Aren’t!
    .
    December 21st officially marks the the day of Winter Solstice!
    .
    Yes the shortest day of the year is still to come. BUT as soon as it comes, it’s GONE! And that means we begin the steady tilt back TOWARDS the sun.
    .
    I share this for a few reasons but the number one reason is to help reduce feelings of RESISTANCE.
    .
    We all experience resistance at times.
    Resistance to where we are and what is happening.
    Resistance sucks.
    Because it’s not what we WANT.
    It especially sucks when it’s totally OUT of our CONTROL, like the rotation of the planet, and the effect it has on our experience of daylight.
    .
    SURRENDER my friends.
    Let this be your mantra for the next two weeks.
    .——————-.May I Surrender.—————-.
    Think of the next two weeks as optimal time to nurture yourself and those you love:
    Cook
    Sleep
    Bathe
    Craft
    Snuggle
    Read
    Get Cozy
    .
    Yes, it’s approaching a busy time of year. Yes there is lots to do in the day. Yes there may be invites and socializing and gatherings to attend.
    I am not saying DONT. And if you are craving the social scene then most certainly DO.

  • I am just so moved by Cultivate tonight . To be surrounded by hundreds of women , who love God, is such a powerful , beautiful sight to see and feel! 😭🙌🏻 I’m so thankful for those who still lift their hands  and bow down to the King of Kings, in the midst of storms! NONE OF THIS is about us, but ALL OF it is about Jesus . And I’m thankful for the women who pour out love and wisdom . Women need other women! I’m so forever grateful for all of the women in my life ❤️ I’ll never forget this feeling, of being with my girls , and hundreds and hundreds of other women , sobbing, praising and worshiping our God! It was beautiful , breathtaking, and powerful. The Holy Spirit was all around. Life changing 🙌🏻Thank you Jesus for the sisters you have put in my life 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻😭😭❤️❤️❤️ #jesus #cultivate #cultivatekindness  #bekind #daughtersoftheking #sandalschurch #grateful #womenoffaith #ohholynight #sitwiththebroken #conviction #thereispowerinthenameofjesus #thankyoujesus #countyourblessings #mindfulness #shiftyourmind

  • What an amazing @cultivatewomen Christmas & Marketplace tonight! As @melodyworkman said tonight, “Kindness wasn’t God’s suggestion, it’s His Solution.” I am worth God’s kindness of sending His Son, so the people we see every day are worth kindness. #cultivatekindness

  • The first puzzle piece I didn’t have to force to fit. 💪🏼I didn’t have to contort myself into a quieter version of myself... I didn’t have to be softer or stronger or convince myself to forgive myself for being myself every other day. 
I didn’t have to be the cool girl who let someone walk all over me. I didn’t have to pretend that constant criticism of my personality, my style, my opinions... didn’t hurt me. 
For once it wasn’t about giving every ounce of my energy and time and love and focus for a man to lean all his weight on me so he could stand tall while I labored to keep him lifted up and feeling good... 🥵 as I ached and bruises more and more of myself. 😪

No games, no agenda, no “am I the favorite this week?” “What will I have to do or forgive to stay in the forefront of his mind?!” 😰

For the first time, it fit together effortlessly. ✨There was pure intention, there was love & understanding... there was a man who wanted to lift me up and pour kindness into me. 🙏🏼Matt has given me a safe space to heal and work through past resentment that will never be his fault. He is the kindest, most humble, hard working, forgiving, understanding, gentle, adventurous man I’ve ever met! 
Through so much ugly, challenging, and emotionally exhausting growth... 🌱he has loved me without fail without hesitation and cheered me on! The greatest friend I’ve ever prayed for! I love my best friend! 💕

  • please excuse this random picture; I need to take more /// I didn’t post anything on olive & honey last week because nothing I wrote really captured what I was feeling. And I don’t want my blog to end up being a place I churn out posts just for the sake of putting up content. And maybe that’ll keep it from growing as quickly or as big as I want it to, but I only want to publish things I believe in and feel strongly about.

So today I wrote a piece on self-worth, because that’s something we allll struggle with. I know someone out there needs this message. So go to the link in my bio to read it and enjoy !!

  • In a season where I’m more often than not traveling to other @sandalschurch campuses on the weekends For @cultivatewomen I’m full of gratitude this one not only bc I got to be together with my hubby but for my community saving me a seat knowing that sitting alone on Sundays has been getting the best of me lately!  Reminder to all about the simple KINDNESS to be shown simply by saving someone a seat so they aren’t sitting alone! Who’s that someone you know who might sit alone bc of whatever circumstance>> text invite them next week and let them know you’ll save them a seat!🥰 #CultivateKindness
