  • Personally, I don’t believe that makes anything invalid. I think being that you’re a sophomore, you still have a lot of room for more self discovery. As time goes by, you continue to learn things about yourself. I’m not the same person I was a year ago and I’m definitely am not the same person I was 10 years ago. We evolve and become more open minded with age. I don’t think we need to decide immediately to put a label on everything as much as we do. All of this labeling is only causing more confusion. At the end of the day, with everything striped away, you’re human. Being attracted to a guy while identifying as a lesbian is ok. There’s something in his soul that you feel a connection to. In a few years, you could potentially find attraction in both sexes and feel you may be bisexual or there was just something in this 1 guy, but, you’re otherwise attracted to girls. Anything is possible. It doesn’t matter as long as you’re being true to yourself and your feelings. In all honesty, it really isn’t anyone else’s business what your sexuality is and how you choose to identify yourself. This is YOUR life. Don’t let labels hold you back from living your life how you want to. Love who you love. Just make sure, you’re one of the people you love too. ❤️ #confessionspage #confessionsaccount #newconfessions #newconfessionspage #newconfessionaccount #confess #letitout #secrets #weallhaveastory #dontbeafraid #dontbeashamed #fessions #fessionsaccount #newfessions #fession #anonymous #youresafe #youresafehere #theconfessional4 🖤Send your confessions and secrets @theconfessional4 Link in bio.

  • I believe that as long as that happiness is coming from within yourself, you should be fine. If you’re only feeling happy based on someone you’re with or around, it definitely won’t be. Happiness isn’t really something that’s a continuous feeling. There will be times you’ll feel sad, angry, confused and that’s ok. You have to reach into yourself to find that happiness. We have to stop basing our value on what other people think. What’s important is what you think. A huge lesson I’ve learned is, when I’m having negative feelings or if I’m hurt, I know it’s time to shift my perception from, only seeing and dwelling on the bad to recognizing and appreciating all the good things/people I still have in my life, that I tend to take for granted. You pay for everything with time and we can’t afford to waste it on anything that’s a threat to our own well being and our happiness. Try to do 1 small thing a day that’s just for you. Something that makes you happy or brings you joy. You deserve to feel happy and you are capable of creating ways to continue to make yourself feel happy. ❤️ #confessionspage #confessionsaccount #newconfessions #newconfessionspage #newconfessionaccount #confess #letitout #secrets #weallhaveastory #dontbeafraid #dontbeashamed #fessions #fessionsaccount #newfessions #fession #anonymous #youresafe #youresafehere #theconfessional4 🖤Send your confessions and secrets @theconfessional4 Link in bio.

  • A powerful narrative of hope by Katie. 💞long post, but trust me, I promise it is well worth the read💞 
I'm not one to typically share a ton about my personal journey, but perhaps sharing my story will help others, and that's more important to me than keeping things private. ❤

For those of you who stick it out through the end of this thing, THANK YOU! 💙 At the age of 7, I was diagnosed with diabetes and hypothyroid. My dad was also a diabetic, so I was able to grasp the concept of poking my fingers and giving myself shots pretty quickly. 👉 I am now 37 years old, and as the years have passed, it has become more and more difficult to manage my diabetes. Anyone who knows a thing or two about diabetes, knows the longer you live with this condition, the harder it becomes to manage. I actually got to the point where I dreaded checking my blood because I just knew it was going to be out of range. 💓👉 I also watched this conditional ultimately take my dad's life at the age of 61. 
Not only was I devastated to lose my dad at such a young age, I was devastated because it was heart-shattering to see what he went through before he passed, and the thought of my own children ever possibly having to see their own mama go through that was haunting. 💙 At the age of 28, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, which is typically a condition people aren't diagnosed with until their later years in life. I'm telling ya- the health Gods dealt me a great hand! 
If you have made it this far, thank you.

  • You know how hard it is to post on #Instagram when you haven’t for ages? And you feel like you need to say something incredibly pithy and profound or at least share a mini-masterpiece of a photo? Me. Right. Now. I’ve been procrastinating over posting here for weeks but I’m done with that. It’s not the best image, it’s not the greatest caption, but I’m not going to worry about it today, I’m just going to show up. Happy New Year everyone! 👋

  • First, I am so sorry you are going through this. If there’s nothing you’ve done for him to even question your trust, I feel like he is either very insecure or he’s trying to push you to the point where you’ll break up with him, so he doesn’t look like the bad guy.  I don’t feel like you would’ve written in, if you did do something because then, you would know why he doesn’t trust you. Trust is a very important part of a relationship but if he’s unsure if he even loves you, take your dignity and just let him go. I know that’s easier said than done but, why continue a relationship with someone who is destroying your heart and fucking with your head? As hurtful as it is for me to say, there’s no future with someone like this. All this is doing is hurting you over and over,  until he gets tired of treating you like shit and decides to break up with you anyway. Give him what he wants. Let him play the victim because once you cut the cords, you can start to grieve the loss of him and the relationship.  A relationship that he doesn’t even feel like you have.  I also have to wonder if he’s involved in something behind your back. Typically, if someone is treating you this way or accusing you of something you didn’t do, it’s really about what they’re doing. I accused my ex of talking to other girls online. He made this huge deal about me accusing him, he broke up with me and played the victim card to anyone who would listen. 5 months after we broke up, I found out he was talking to someone else online, behind my back, for at least 7 months, before we broke up. I said nothing because I knew the truth and so did the people closest to me. You deserve someone who trusts you and has no doubt in their mind how much they love you and wants to be with you. In the case that he’s just insecure, you can’t fix that in him. If he already isn’t, with everything he’s expressed to you, he’s most likely going to end up cheating. There’s no simple answer to this and either way, you’re the one getting hurt. Is someone, who is continuously breaking you down and making you insecure, really worth it? If you need to talk more, our DM’s are always open and everything still remains confidential.

  • One major thing I’ve learned from a girl I’m friends with on IG @nikkidanger41 , is that your feelings are valid and they matter. She gave me the strength and courage to acknowledge that, it’s ok, not to be ok. Her page is public so you can go check her out anytime. I asked her permission to tag her in this post because she knows how it feels. How everything feels. 
People have it in their head that just because you don’t “look” sick, it’s not real when, it’s as real as it gets. Something terrifying happened in YOUR life to YOU that really affected you. You have nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. Nobody has the right to tell you how you “should” feel because, they aren’t you and didn’t experience what you did. People don’t even really need to understand your feelings but, they should respect them. Real friends accept and support you no matter what. If you open up to them about your feelings and they still don’t respect how badly a traumatic event affected you, those simply aren’t your real friends. #confessionspage #confessionsaccount #newconfessions #newconfessionspage #newconfessionaccount #confess #letitout #secrets #weallhaveastory #dontbeafraid #dontbeashamed #fessions #fessionsaccount #newfessions #fession #anonymous #youresafe #youresafehere #theconfessional4 🖤Send your confessions and secrets @theconfessional4 Link in bio.

  • From his first birthday gone, until his last!! A LOT of life has happened between these two pictures & she just keeps staying humble,  respectful, hopeful & kind.

Ask her, she gives all that credit to Jesus, every time. 
She's got a little sass 😉 & some green eyes but other than that, she's her daddy's daughter, all day!! So happy for my girl ❤ ( Also, just had to mention what an old man her dad is now, y'all do the math!! 😱😂 )

  • Although there are certain things that happened in our life which may create triggers, or even unpleasant flashbacks, and cause us to react toward situations in a different way than others. I think what speaks volumes about a person’s character, is not the horrible incidents that occurred in their past, but how they chose to overcome them with grace and dignity. Then to also grow into a magnificent loving individual who becomes a part of a society that affects others live’s with positivity, and make this world a better place to be! Well these are the individuals to be admired, and are the ones who inspire me!

  • A lot of the time, when we’re in love or think we’re in love, we ignore or just don’t see, what someone else, who really knows us, can. We have a hard time believing or wanting to believe, we were so wrong about someone. We have to learn it the hard way. These days, so many people wear masks and put on this charade, in relationships and once that masks falls off, we can’t process how we missed so many red flags and warnings. We all have this longing to be loved and unfortunately, that leaves people vulnerable. Being in a toxic relationship is crazy and you don’t even realize how fucked up things really were, until it’s too late. It happened to me with my ex. I turned my back on so many people because, at the time, I saw something in someone that was never real because, I didn’t see what they saw. It’s almost been a year since we broke up and all of those friends forgave me, even though I knew I didn’t deserve it. They assured me that everyone makes mistakes. I was the shitty friend and every single day, I wish I could take it all back, knowing, what I know now. My karma for that is, I still can’t forgive myself for doing it. When I think about everything, that’s what really breaks my heart. Talk to your friend, tell them how they made you feel and just hear them out. You honestly, don’t even have to forgive them, ever. The truth is, we all fuck up, but, we learn from those fuck ups and learn to accept the consequences. The regret and guilt your friend potentially feels, for turning their back, on a true friend, like you, may be destroying them, more than the breakup. But again, it’s your decision if you want to give your friend another chance. If you do, that’s great but, if you don’t, that’s a consequence they have to live with. #confessionspage #confessionsaccount #newconfessions #newconfessionspage #newconfessionaccount #confess #letitout #secrets #weallhaveastory #dontbeafraid #dontbeashamed #fessions #fessionsaccount #newfessions #fession #anonymous #youresafe #youresafehere #theconfessional4 🖤Send your confessions and secrets @theconfessional4 Link in bio.

  • Surround yourself with those that bring you joy and make you better. Not those that see no wrong in what they’ve done or blame others for their circumstances. And watch out for those that constantly judge you. No one is perfect. But we all must learn and grow from our mistakes. Don’t let anyone hold you back from moving forward.

  • I’ve learned a lot of lessons in life from a few fucked up people. I believe in the saying “what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.” I’ve endured things I wouldn’t wish on anyone. I refuse to let those things define me! Fitness has been my biggest outlet. If you are dealing with anything that makes you feel unworthy, just remember YOU are stronger than you may believe! Don’t ever let someone belittle or put you in a place you don’t deserve! YOU are worthy, YOU are beautiful, YOU are smart and YOU deserve happiness! Just because you are strong enough to deal with pain doesn’t mean you deserve it! Be happy, be blessed and smile✌🏼 #fitness #myoutlet #weallhaveastory #youareenough #youarebeautiful #youarestrong #youdeservethebest #loveyourselffirst #exercise #mymotivation #girlswholift #fitnessismyoutlet #smile

  • As I was getting ready today, I realized how dang long my bangs are and I knew that I needed to get a bang cut. I reached out to a couple of people knowing that this was probably too soon to get an appointment and then I thought to myself (or the Holy Spirit whispered into my heart)..."ya know what! I want to see how the salon at my local Walmart does at cutting hair!" To me, it was an exciting adventure because I always get my hair cut by absolutely amazing stylists at local independent salons. But, I thought I'd jump outside my comfort zone and besides, I had to pick up dog food and shampoo. 
I wandered into the salon, excited for this bang trim. A woman stepped in asking me if she could help me. "YES! Please! I need a bang trim!" I sat in her chair and she shared her story with me. A woman, 44 (just like me) who got pregnant when she was 19 (just like me too, only she made the choice to have her baby, and I chose not to and would, unbeknownst to me at the time, have a lot of shame and guilt that I'd carry around for 20+ years, only to realize that God loves me right where I am, that that little baby is in heaven, and that I am loved). She dropped out of cosmetology school when she had her baby girl. She talked about how for her next 20+ years she would raise her children and be there for them and what a blessing that was to be able to do that. 
About 4 years ago, her and her husband  divorced and she found herself not knowing what to do with her life. Her daughter (whom she was pregnant with), said, "Mom! Now is the time to finish what you started!" And together, her and her daughter went on to get their licenses. 
Her story inspired me so much!!! I invited her and her daughter to be part of any fashion events that I have and I will so gladly connect them with other local fashion events. 
We all have a story. And whether  you're working at Walmart or at a high end salon, there is a passion that drives us, and she had that passion! I'm so grateful to have met her! 
And, I love my bang job. I told her to be fearless and get in there and chop it up. She did just that!

I want to see how the salon at my local Walmart does at cutting hair!" To me, it was an exciting adventure because I always get my hair cut by absolutely amazing stylists at local independent salons. But, I thought I'd jump outside my comfort zone and besides, I had to pick up dog food and shampoo.
    I wandered into the salon, excited for this bang trim. A woman stepped in asking me if she could help me. "YES! Please! I need a bang trim!" I sat in her chair and she shared her story with me. A woman, 44 (just like me) who got pregnant when she was 19 (just like me too, only she made the choice to have her baby, and I chose not to and would, unbeknownst to me at the time, have a lot of shame and guilt that I'd carry around for 20+ years, only to realize that God loves me right where I am, that that little baby is in heaven, and that I am loved). She dropped out of cosmetology school when she had her baby girl. She talked about how for her next 20+ years she would raise her children and be there for them and what a blessing that was to be able to do that.
    About 4 years ago, her and her husband divorced and she found herself not knowing what to do with her life. Her daughter (whom she was pregnant with), said, "Mom! Now is the time to finish what you started!" And together, her and her daughter went on to get their licenses.
    Her story inspired me so much!!! I invited her and her daughter to be part of any fashion events that I have and I will so gladly connect them with other local fashion events.
    We all have a story. And whether you're working at Walmart or at a high end salon, there is a passion that drives us, and she had that passion! I'm so grateful to have met her!
    And, I love my bang job. I told her to be fearless and get in there and chop it up. She did just that!

  • Honestly, Who Cares?  You ever see these amazing stories shared that leave you in tears, encouraged, blown away... then immediately compare them to your life?  You quickly realize just how blessed you are and just how bad it really could be.

I believe that I have a story to share but every time I attempt to write even a small portion of it... the enemy starts to feed me with thoughts that it’s just not good enough.  Honestly, who cares?  Who cares to read about a single mom and her son, right?  It’s nothing new.  Single moms are on the rise.

Why would my story be any different?  Why?  Because it’s mine.  Most of us have survived things we thought would kill us.  Well, I believe more of us have than would like to admit or at least share.  Why?  Fear.  Fear keeps people from sharing their stories or experiences.  Shame.  Shame keeps people from allowing others to see a glimpse of the good and the bad... even the ugly.  Talk.  People will talk.  People will gossip.

The enemy is good at keeping us quiet.  He doesn’t want us to share anything that God has done for us.  He tries to minimize any and all valleys that God has led us out of. 
I don’t know who needs to hear this but YOUR story matters.  No matter how BIG or SMALL you think your story is... someone needs to hear it.

It might not be everyone... but someone.

Someone going through a divorce.
Someone battling addiction.
Someone loving an addict.
Someone raising a child or children alone.
Someone fighting for their life.
Someone grieving.
Someone hurting.
Someone wondering if they can make it another day.
Someone at the end of their rope. 
Someone that needs you.

Ask God to place someone in your life at just the right time that can be encouraged or inspired by your story. 
Your story may give them the hope they need to survive another day.

Honestly, who cares?  Someone does.

  • I’ve been debating with myself if I should share this post or not. Obviously the debate to share won, so here goes. Today is the two year anniversary I found myself in the ER. I’ve never been to the ER before. I use to watch ER but otherwise I try to avoid hospitals/doctors etc at all costs. However, I’m not quite there yet to share why I was in the ER. The only person that knows the reason is Cameron (other than the ER doctor and Nurse). Maybe sometime in the summer months I’ll finally share. I need the sun on my face and to hear birds chirping in the trees to help me write why I ended up going. Just so I don’t alarm anyone, my life was never in true danger and for those that might be thinking, was it a miscarriage? It was not. I can’t imagine what it would be like to suffer a miscarriage, but ironically, if it had been a miscarriage I probably would have shared soon after, where as it’s now been two years and still feel hesitant to share.  Why I even mention anything now but not the story, I do need to share it and this will hold myself accountable to do so soon, but on my schedule. 
In the meantime, I’m manifesting spring in my home!

  • Let’s be real!

No really, let’s be real!

If you would have told me the day I got married, or lost my first baby, or 3rd baby. If you would have told me the day I felt so right about foster care and adopting that parenting would look like this... If you would have told me?

I had no idea the realities of mental health struggles or trauma. I had zero idea i would ever study and know so much about the brain and emotions. I had no idea I would parent my children so different than anything I had known as a child.

If you would have told me that people have actually dealt with mental health struggles for generations? I was oblivious!

Now I know so many suffer in silence. I also know with out this life experience how many people I wouldn’t know. I have met so many amazing humans who take their pain and turn it around to serve others. To make a difference.

They talk about their times of darkness with the pride of overcoming. They speak of their struggles with no shame or remorse, why should they?

Those who suffer depression, anxiety, trauma, Bi Polar disorder,PTSD and more have zero control over wether these will be their trials to face.

Little kids who are abused, neglected, drug exposed have no choice. Powerless to tell their parents no, please don’t!

I have had to send two of my kids to out of home treatment for help and each time I am have been amazed by how if we could all wear our stories like a name badge for all to see how much more kind and understanding we would be to ALL we come in contact with.

Maybe sometimes our crazy needs a little tucking back in and sometimes it needs more tender loving understanding and care.

Top #weallhaveastory Posts

  • To the fitness coaches and gym rats out there... What you don’t know about the girl wearing the tight spandex shorts at the gym is that she has already lost 50 pounds and she feels so confident in the figure she has built.

What you don’t know about the skinny girl wearing the matching gym set is that she eats almost 4,000 calories a day and struggles to put on weight.

What you don’t know about the girl hiding under the oversized hoodie and ball cap is that she recently left an abusive relationship where she was told she was not beautiful and not worthy of love. She has taken a huge step out of her comfort zone to show up at the gym and be in public.

What you don’t know about the girl who only does cardio for an hour at the gym every day is that her dad told her she needed to go run ok the treadmill... that she was looking a little chunky. Nobody has taught her how to be healthy or how to feel confident in her skin.

What you don’t know about the girl who works out every day but keeps putting on weight is that her diet doesn’t suck... she is insulin resistant and the foods her nutritionist recommended are causing inflammation and hormone imbalances.

What you don’t know about the girl in the gym who is shredded year round is that she is a single mom who wants to put herself back out there. She wants to show her kids what it looks like to take care of herself. And the challenge of pushing herself in the gym and fueling her body properly has helped her build tremendous amounts of confidence. She is not vain and she doesn’t think she owns the place.

We as women as so quick to judge. We are so quick to give advice and tell other people what they’re doing is wrong or unhealthy. We are so quick to tell people that they should or shouldn’t do certain things or look a certain way.

But what I’ve realized is... everyone has a story. And those of us who share the gym life need to be more interested in learning about each other instead of critiquing each other.

Offer the help... but be sure you present the  invitation with a genuine desire to learn their story.

Because every single one of us have one. 🖤

  • Every. Single. One.
.
No one grows up as a child hoping to struggle or do things they’re not proud of. No one grows up hoping to hurt the people around them who love them the most. No one grows up hoping to be a person that no one wants to ever be around.
.
At one point, every single person came into this world a precious child, so full of innocence, so full of life, so full of vigor, and ready to conquer whatever was before them, not having a clue what awaited them, or for some, what was about to be done to them.
.
Starting as children, many people have heartbreaking stories that would explain why they are the way that they are, why they do some of the things that they do, and why they struggle in some of the areas that they do.
.
And we would love them all if we heard them. We would at least, understand. ❤️

  • “My name is Rory I’m 25, I’m Scottish, & I was born with a birthmark called a venous malformation on my upper lip & right cheek, which I have had around 20 operations on to reduce the size of it.
-
Growing up I had to endure a great deal of prejudice & mental abuse which by the time I had reached my teenage years had completely shattered my confidence.
-
I was very shy & I felt like I was living a never ending nightmare.
-
People told me that I was ugly.
-
People told me that they would kill themselves if they looked like me.
-
People told me that I would never achieve certain things in life, & because my confidence was so low I started to believe them.
-
I have now achieved everything & more that people told me that I wouldn’t, & I continue to achieve more things that a lot of people don’t think that people who look “different” would be able to do or would have the confidence to do.
-
With strength & positivity I have completely overcome the adversity that I faced in the past, & I want to show everyone that you can get through any low points that you might experience in your lifetime & you can achieve ANYTHING that you set your mind to.
-
At one point I thought that I was always going to be unhappy & shy, but here I am now happier & more confident than I ever thought I would be.
-
Prejudice is a horrible thing, & nobody should ever be unfairly judged or subjected to abuse purely because of what they look like, their race, their sexuality or any other reason.
-
There are people who have been killed due to being prejudiced, there are people who end their own lives due to being prejudiced, & there are people who just aren’t comfortable in their own skin all because of the prejudice that they have to face which is absolutely heart breaking.
-
We live in a very multi cultural & diverse world & nobody should be made to feel like they don’t belong here.
-
Diversity is a beautiful thing which should be celebrated & I am determined to do my best to help & inspire others.

  • TRIGGER WARNING!!! Part 1 of many •

Anxiety, depression, complex PTSD.. Just a few of the components to my “WHY.” •

This week is dedicated to me and my story. Follow along as I bring you up to speed on how I got to where I’m at, but also follow with caution. I plan on being raw and uncut, honest to a default about my life experiences. So let’s dive a little deeper, to where it began.. •

Growing up, I was the target. The target for bullies and abusers. I remember starting middle school after moving to a new area, ready and eager to build new friendships and bury my roots. Ha, unfortunately I didn’t know how hard it  was to be the “new girl.” •

The boys crushed on me and the girls hated me for it. I was groped in the hallways, and shoved into corners and bathrooms as they’d grab me by the crotch.. As you can imagine, it quickly became too much to process and I started introverting myself. Hiding in the back of classrooms so I could sit at my desk and mutilate my arms. Anything to be in control of my own pain. •

The torment and ridicule got worse as the days passed, hell, I was assaulted and jumped by girls at school events on multiple occasions. I was the slut, the whore, and every demeaning name you could ever think to call a woman (funny how I hadn’t even been with a boy, yet this is what I was dubbed). •

Eventually it became far too much, I wanted out.. I wanted peace and serenity, but even more specifically, I wanted to die. I wanted to be able to close my eyes and just never wake up, and THAT became my goal. •

My first attempt scared the shit out of me. I remember gagging and vomiting as they were tubing me to pump my stomach. Then sitting in the psych unit for days, full of fear about what would happen when I returned to school. Would they know what I did? Would this be their new ammo? •

My parents met with the faculty, and just as every other case of bullying you hear about, the school tried to plead as if they weren’t  at fault or accountable for anything. My mom was terrified, terrified of what could potentially happen if I returned, and it was at that point I was withdrawn to continue my education at home. •

  • I am an OVER analyzer.
This is both a blessing and a curse.
I over analyze my conversations, creations, posts, photos, cooking and even my parenting techniques.
To say I’m a perfectionist is a very large understatement.
Truth is, I wasn’t always this way.
An extreme case of nesting in my last couple months of pregnancy sparked this obsessive need to have everything just right.
It wasn’t until my post-partum blues were finally settling down that I realized it wasn’t just nesting my space.
It had become everything.

Here’s an Instagram share “I OVER ANALYZE MY POSTS” and I know I am not the only one doing this.
Questions run through my head. . . 
Is this photo good enough?
Did I edit this the right way?
Is what I have to say even interesting?
Are people going to like this?
And then there is the BIGGEST question.
ONE I KNOW so many people/creators are thinking, but don’t talk about.
“Will this increase my following?” This platform can be kind of dangerous for someone with these traits.
So I’ve been choosing to ask myself new questions. Like: “Why am I here? What do I want to achieve from this platform?” So here it is folks. . .

I am here to help inspire “Womxn” no matter how they identify to speak and live their truth. We came out of the womb screaming and at some point in all of our lives we were told to be quiet, to hush. This silenced the wild we have in us and I’m here to remind you it’s still there. Be wild, be free, be kind, be bold. Be whatever the f#%* YOU WANT TO BE, live however YOU WANT TO LIVE. Raise your children however YOU WANT TO RAISE YOUR CHILDREN. Or be the womxn who breaks free of conditioning and doesn’t have children at all. Whatever the case, whoever you are, my promise is to always help Keep Womxn Wild”

Womxn reach out to me and share their stories and I believe their stories should be heard. In more then just an e-mail, to me. Then I began creating a platform and a “Pack” of other inspiring Womxn I know wanted to help support it. A space to #speakyourtruth 🙌🏼 This is for all the Womxn who have a story. Go follow @keepwomxnwild ... Go become a member... & Thank you, for always inspiring me to do more, be more and share more. ❤️

    ONE I KNOW so many people/creators are thinking, but don’t talk about.
    “Will this increase my following?” This platform can be kind of dangerous for someone with these traits.
    So I’ve been choosing to ask myself new questions. Like: “Why am I here? What do I want to achieve from this platform?” So here it is folks. . .

    I am here to help inspire “Womxn” no matter how they identify to speak and live their truth. We came out of the womb screaming and at some point in all of our lives we were told to be quiet, to hush. This silenced the wild we have in us and I’m here to remind you it’s still there. Be wild, be free, be kind, be bold. Be whatever the f#%* YOU WANT TO BE, live however YOU WANT TO LIVE. Raise your children however YOU WANT TO RAISE YOUR CHILDREN. Or be the womxn who breaks free of conditioning and doesn’t have children at all. Whatever the case, whoever you are, my promise is to always help Keep Womxn Wild”

    Womxn reach out to me and share their stories and I believe their stories should be heard. In more then just an e-mail, to me. Then I began creating a platform and a “Pack” of other inspiring Womxn I know wanted to help support it. A space to #speakyourtruth 🙌🏼 This is for all the Womxn who have a story. Go follow @keepwomxnwild ... Go become a member... & Thank you, for always inspiring me to do more, be more and share more. ❤️
