  • More poppies! It was sad to see how many spots had been trampled on. There are plenty of clear hiking paths to follow, and plenty of spots like this to stand behind the flowers and get a great shot! #dontbeadick

I met Alicia in 2006, as a TA in her AVID class. I’ve been following her journey ever since! I have been so proud to call her my friend, and to see her overcome every adversity you can imagine, finding her health and passion along the way. I know you’ll share my awe for her, and the inspiration that she is! 💜

Do you remember the first time you thought of yourself negatively? 🤔
.
The first time you knew what cellulite was, or what a thigh master was for?
.
The first time you felt less-than or uncomfortable in your own skin?
.
I know I do!🖐🏽

The latest installment of the #SelfLoveWithSondra series is all about learning to take up space {LINK IN BIO! 👆🏽} Because you and me? We BELONG here. And we aren’t apologizing for existing! Because women deserve to shine. To thrive. And to take up space.

  • What I know for sure after 31 years on the planet:
.
LIVE WITH LOVE. If you operate from a place of real, unabashed, honest love you can be assured right people will always come to you. 💜
.
BUT KNOW WHEN TO STEP BACK. Love isn’t enough for dealing with everyone. Some need to be dealt with from a distance. 🤡
.
PROTECT YOURSELF. When people don’t protect you, be diligent in protecting yourself. Even if it hurts your feelings. Even if it’s hard. 💪🏽
.
GO THE EXTRA MILE AND PROTECT OTHERS. Think of how many times you needed it, and remember that when you feel tired. 🤝
.
ITS OK TO COMPLAIN. But acknowledge that there’s usually a solution, and be the one that tries to put it in place. ⚖️
.
ITS OK TO BE ANGRY. But for like, 5 minutes. We’ve got shit to do. 💁🏽‍♀️
.
ITS NEVER TOO LATE. Not to apologize. Not to forgive. Not to tell someone you love them. As they say, better late than never. 📆
.
ASK FOR HELP! It’s always there, and we are always assuming it isn’t. Be ok declining help when it isn’t what you need. Without many of you, I don’t know who/where I’d be! 🙏🏽
.
GIVE IT 100%. Even when no one else around you does. Even when it’s not acknowledged or praised. 💯
.
KNOW YOUR WORTH. Act accordingly. Expect more from yourself and the people you allow in your life. 🦄
.
SEE THE WORLD. Expand your horizons and be amazed by all there is to see and learn from the phenomenal people and places that it has to offer, and be better for it. 🗺
.
I’m still learning. But I’m grateful for what’s been, what’s to come, and FOR ALL OF YOU! 💕
.
Thank you for all of the birthday love! 😘
