🙈Known him 15 years, dated 2 years, and engaged for 11 months. 🙉To this day, and we still cant believe we're going to be married! 🙊We now work together to retire young so we can travel with our family 😍😘
After much hesitation, I have decided to share this image. Before anyone attacks me or questions me or my fiancé over it let me explain (although I really shouldn't have to cuz it's my body and my account, yet here we are). 🖤 I am very open about my life and my past and my confidence on here. I have highs and lows. Good days and bad days. Even though I get shit for talking about it so much, my past really does play a huge role in my bad days. 🖤 Recently i shared a message that was sent to me via the anonymous app Sarahah. It stated that my abusive ex still talks shit about me and calls me crazy and says that I'm fat. Although the message ended on a good note, I would be lying if I said the harsh words spoken about me didn't hurt me. I struggled for the longest time with my ex to love myself, and it has taken me a really long time to love myself again after him. This has nothing to do with Andrew as he reminds me daily how beautiful he thinks I am and proves it day after day. My struggles are simply MINE. 🖤 I snapped this picture the other day for Andrew. I was feeling good and felt sexy and overall just loved myself fully. He too loved it and stated numerous times how gorgeous I was.......however, after sending it to him I became so aware of my body. My exes words echoed in my brain. I'm too fat. My thighs are huge. I look horrible. Etc....then I took a step back, discussed the pic with a few close girl friends, and remembered who the fuck I was. 🖤 I am kara. I am a strong woman. I have overcome so much. I survived an abusive relationship. I am marrying the absolute love of my life. I. AM. BEAUTIFUL. And I'll be damned if anyone tries to make me feel otherwise. 🖤 #bodypositivity#selflove#confidence#curves#sexy#happy#blackandwhite

First of all, I haven't done a full make up face in what feels like ages, so I'm loving this picture. Second of all, even though this look is kinda serious, it's reflecting my mood right now which is contemplative. Have you ever hesitated to post something, promote yourself, or talk about what you do because you feel like you're not "there" yet? Apparently, this mindset is what many women suffer from. So as I'm thinking about this I'm realizing something I've already known, and I guess I just wanna share it, and it's this: no one is ever "there." This road that we're on is just a journey, with dips and hills and some incredible views. So don't hold back. Shout your journey from the rooftops, or whisper it in the solitude of your closet. But speak your truth. Will it into existence. Own it. #wordsofwisdom#truth#beaboss#ownit#claimyourcrown#bossbabes#confidence#empowerment#bebold#findyouris
Around this time last year my whole life turned upside down. If you told me 10 years ago I would be where I am today, I would tell you you're crazy. When I was growing up, I was a huge athlete. My whole life revolved around playing sports. "Time to go to practice Julie" "We have to get ready for the game" "Don't forget to pack a bag for the tournament." I barely had a break. I would jump from one practice to another, changing equipment in the car, reenergizing myself for the next x amount of hours. I lived for it. Nothing could beat the adrenaline I had when I stepped onto the field or court. Getting "in the zone" and blocking out everything around me. I knew I wanted to do this for the rest of my life. Until one day, I was told I had to stop doing what I love most. I was unexpectedly injured from a swimming accident... which led to me finding out I have a left ventricular aneurism. They told me I had to stop playing sports or "ill end up on the news." Having fear of dying at any second of any day is scary. I was so broken inside and devastated. I didn't know what could possibly come next if playing sports was all I knew how to do. After slowly recovering from my lost state, I developed a love for art. Finally, my new passion for drawing took me down a whole new path. It helped me clear my thoughts and find peace. All of the empty time slots that I devoted to going to practice, I now devoted to art. Not just drawing but also music. I first started off by teaching myself 4 instruments. After a couple of years of playing, I decided to become a dj. Now with music and drawing keeping me busy, I was smooth sailing. The years flew by and next thing I know, I'm going to college. Everything was moving so fast. With sports out of the picture, I didn't know what I wanted to do or what my major was going to be. That being said, I went into college open minded. I just started to like fashion since I was able to break free from those hideous uniforms I wore my whole life. People would come up to me and say how they love my outfit or ask me where I got it from. I would be confused since I just threw it on before I ran out the door. (next half commented) ⬇️
This hit home today. One of our guys was in the office this morning conducting prospecting calls. From that, he got a few highly potential leads and looking to close a 6 figure deal with his company. The point is, no one wants to study, cold/warm call, approach the hottest women, ask for a raise, pitch an investment, or start a business. The audacious man does the hard shit that normal people won't do. Why? Because when you mix audacity with intelligence, you know that you'll never get your way in this word unless you pay your dues. Be audacious! #mraudacious#mensfashion#menswear#grind#motivation#motivationmonday#hardwork#hustle#audacious#bold#competition#contrarian#confidence

268/365 .. Self-care Sundays. 🌷 I'm currently snuggled up with a vegan soy latte in a coffee shop re-listening to this self worth recorded webinar in the Emporium. I love nerding out over personal development and growth tools and I tend to get lost in the Emporium from time to time. But with a blocked root chakra and dealing with unusually low self-confidence this summer, this webinar is really coming back to me at the perfect time. . . One of the biggest takeaways from the webinar is about finding happiness from within - its all about first creating a healthy, positive, respected relationship with ourselves first and everything else beyond that will fall into place. All of our relationships in our life are a direct reflection and mirror of our relationship with ourselves. . . This last year I've felt like I've not had the greatest relationships, especially in the love (or lack thereof 🙄) department and I feel like I've allowed a lot of behaviors that I shouldn't of. A lot of the ways people treated me I feel like were not okay or not what I deserve - especially at 28 years old but I allowed them to happen for too long. It all stems back to what we think we deserve. I believe that stems back to I simply didn't think I deserved better because I didn't first have a great relationship with myself. If we love ourselves and respect ourselves, we ask for the same kind of treatment from others. So here's to growing first with ourselves and then with all the ones we love in our lives. No matter where you are now in your journey to self-worth - keep going no matter how slow you must go as long as you do not stop 🌱// #holistichippie
We teach our children how to walk with #confidence by our #actions . We show them what they are #worth by the way we #value them. My children have always loved me. When other middle school children shunned their parents, my children were #introducing me to all their #friends . My boys would hug and kiss me in front of whoever was around and I never had to ask them for it. Even my step sons hugged me and loved me in #public . I know its because I try my best to be my best self and they know I love them! They know I want them to be happy and to be who they are created to be! When I was a child, I was shamed by family and put down for being beautiful. I was given rags to wear and I never had any idea why my hair was like a Brillo pad because they bought the cheapest shampoo for me. I learned the hard way, how to love myself and feel God’s Love for me. I cried a lot for years and years. And now I am the strong woman I am today because of it. Most people who go through what I have, turn away from God but I know where my strength lies. Think about these verses: 3 Nephi 12: 15 Behold, do men light a candle and put it under a bushel? Nay, but on a candlestick, and it giveth light to all that are in the house; 16 Therefore let your light so shine before this people, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven. #feet#feetmodel
