All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. – Walt Disney >
Showing up everyday - even when we don’t want to - is the hardest part. When I don’t feel awesome. When I’m not inspired. When all seems to be falling apart. Showing up those days is what makes us stronger! > #transformation happens with effort and determination when you put in the work. As wonderful as Walt Disney was, the idea of a magic wand or fairy godmother has us all wishing for the quick fix. (Me included!). When you show up everyday, you will be your own magic. No wand needed.

I was talking to my cousin last night about how important making memories and travelling the world is.
This picture of me is at the Plaza in New York at Christmas time on our honeymoon.
It still is my dream to stay there and Joseph has promised me that one day we will, even for a night!
I love everything about Christmas, and I'm so excited its coming up.
Go save for a trip, even if it takes a year. Figure out what's important and put back little by little, memories are important as each year passes and one day you will look back and know you didn't regret working a little hard to go on that trip!!
It seems like yesterday that I was struggling with feelings of self-loathing through a cycle of emotions... guilt, shame, anger and fear. It seems like only yesterday that my big, happy and boisterous persona was only a very small fraction of who I was wholly..
The perpetual cycle of fear/shame/anger seemed to grab ahold of me and throw me off balance the very minute I thought I’d found solid footing. It made heavy drinking and partying quite alluring. It was a form numbing after-all, and it seemed the best tool at the time as I was best equip to ignore the cycle this way... numbed..
What I learned was that no numbing tool, no ignoring, no brushing off, no happy partying or denying was going to help me break free of the emotional cycle. These things only enforced the cycle.. It was radical honesty and integration of the darkest corners of my soul that brought on the transformation I needed to break the self-loathing cycles. It was a long process and it was fucking scary! It seemed it would never end..
And then one day something happened inside of me. There was a burning that took over me, only this time is was not the burning of anger but rather, it was transformation. I had accumulated enough pieces of myself that I wasn’t as fragmented anymore... I was closer to whole... I was transformed..
I know it is difficult to believe that it can get better... but I am proof, skin and bones and ash of transformation, that it can. It does..
When I first saw this picture I actually had to stop my brain for a second. That's the face of a truly happy Robin and I haven't seen that girl in a long ass time. I needed to figure out my own shit and I'm doing just that. I sat around waiting for SOMETHING to happen, something to change. It didn't happen until I clicked yes. I did it for the money if I'm being totally honest but I also feel great when I'm able to help someone love the way they look. So I thought it was cool that I was able to do both. But I also knew from the stories I had been hearing that I would get so much more than that from my simple (yet not so simple) yes! And that proved to be even more true the moment I got to MONATions this year. I truly can't put into words everything that I personally experienced. But I can tell you, the girl that didn't want to be here last year feels more alive than she ever has! #itsuptoyou#youareincontrol#ihavegreatnessinme#bebetter#lookalive#confidence#takeachance#itsworthit#monations2019
»9.17.19« this is what depression and anxiety look like on a daily basis. Real talk - I’ve been battling depression/anxiety for close to 2 years now. All because I had to work with a horrible human being. Trying to always be happy and optimistic for everyone else is exhausting, It’s a daily battle, and today’s fight was a simple email. An email that took 5 mins to write. But in reality it took nearly two weeks for me to do it. I’m ok, I will be ok. not looking for sympathy just updating everyone who cares :) with that said, I need to do what’s best for my mental health. I will be deleting all my social media on Friday morning (not a cry for attention just want people to know I didn’t just “disappear”) so if you want to keep in contact with me shoot me a message and we can exchange numbers. See y’all around :) .

Ever have a car you couldn’t rely on? Or sit in a wobbly chair? .
If you weren’t sure your car would start or that chair would hold you up you would make adjustments right? You wouldn’t sign up for a cross-country drive in that car...and I bet you would sit slowly and gingerly in that chair. .
Now think about the opposite. A car or chair you knew you could count on. No hesitation right? In fact, the reliability of both wouldn’t even come up as a question in your mind and you could just drive...or sit 😉. .
Confidence in yourself is critical to your success and to the extent that you’ll even dream. If you’re not sure about your own abilities in your relationships, your work, your business...the scope or quality of what you’ll even attempt or approach will be limited. .
So are you doomed? Nope. You have the ability to increase your confidence. You can’t buy it and it doesn’t always happen overnight. It’s built one success stacked on top of another. .
With every success you stack up, no matter how small, you’ll begin to build your confidence and pretty soon, your mind will expand with more possibilities. What win can you have today that will cause you to increase your confidence? A daily win will mean 7 new victories by the end of the week!
People, especially parents say they will do anything for their kids but then use their kids as the reason why they can't do the things they want to do that can in the long run have a bigger impact that the small impact of missing the child's event. Nothing worthwhile comes easy, otherwise everybody will have worthy things. Success doesn't happen by accident, it happens on purpose. And I'm not talking "Good Job" success (no job will pay you to live the life you really want, only the life your job let's you afford), I'm talking "living life on your terms" success. Success=Freedom so with true success you can do what you want, when you want, with who you want for however long you want. That's the success I'm chasing. Screw living paycheck to paycheck or hoping my "savings account" will save me if things go bad. I'm trying to live life, not just survive it because it's not like you getting out of it alive.
This week 1st graders used the free website #aww to create #dotday drawings. This activity helped us to practice our mouse skills like clicking and dragging and identifying tools on the toolbar like paint and eraser. #itsworthit#edtech#techlearning#library
One thing I learned this weekend at church is... you can’t shortcut your destiny... even if you know where you’re headed. You’ve got to put in the work. No way around it. But don’t worry... if it’s hard, it’s always a place worth going. Stay the course.
If you haven’t tried #Beautéderm , you’ve been missing a lot! You save on make-up, dermas, botox, fillers etc.! In a week (sometimes even less) you will see the results even other people will notice! It removes not just acne but also scars, lines, freckles & haggard-ness.

It took me a long time to commit (about a year to be exact). I was afraid of failing. Again. But holy shit I’m glad I finally took the risk.
I know it may sound expensive, but really, the money I spent 3 years ago is nothing compared to the feeling I have now. I’d spend it a thousand more times for this level of confidence, the new found love I have for myself, and let me be honest for a sec, for the good feeling I have again when I see myself naked. No amount of money can EVER compare to that.
Nothing come easy! You have to work for what you want! Just a little reminder for this Tuesday that no matter how slow you feel like your progress is towards something it’s still progress! Keep your head up and keep pushing! #mothercluckersfarmhouse

Getting to connect with help people. People I just met, people I’ve know forever and am reconnecting with.. I mean what could be better than that?
I have spent so much time the past few weeks getting to share with others. I’ve gotten to share my story and experience. I’ve gotten to share encouragement and truth and a smile. I’ve gotten to pray for people, ask questions and hear about goals and dreams and see what God is doing all over the place! I mean really... what could be better than that?! So thank you. Thank you for sharing and trusting. Thank you for connecting and letting me in. Because really, what I’m here for is so multi faceted. But one of the big ones.. I’m here for the people. I’m here for you.
DO...NOT...SELF...SABOTAGE. Let me say that again! DO NOT SELF SABOTAGE! Fall in love with making yourself feel good, strong and full of life! Cupcakes are not life. Ciabatta roll sandwiches are not life. Mac and cheese is not life. Bagels are not life. Loaded baked potatoes are not life. (Do you see where Im going with this? 😉) Food can be a comfort, and delicious and can fill that void that you are to scared to talk to the counselor about, and at the same time be really really good for you!
Here’s the thing. We’ve all seen the meme that basically says “Sacrifice and staying committed to a healthy lifestyle is hard. But so is sickness and illness and aches and pains. You chose your hard”. Like it or not, YOU CHOOSE YOUR HARD. Every single day. Your body regenerates with the food you give it. You are choosing your hard. You would rather play on your phone for an hour than walk around your neighborhood. You are choosing your hard. You don’t want to miss your favorite tv shows instead of getting a good nights sleep. You are choosing your hard. etc.
Are you feeling me yet?? You have the POWER to make that good choice. You also have the power to make the bad choice.
A friend once told me not to long ago @jennthebrainyhairlady “Laziness is expensive”. It’s your choice. It’s always been....♥️ •

Today we officially will sell this beloved home... it’s never been so emotional to let go of a place I have lived. I used to move every year and this is the longest house I have lived in and for sure the one I have put the most of my heart and soul into... physically and emotionally. All my babies came home from the hospital to this place I was called to buy for “some sort of ministry” at the time. I had no idea God had foster care and this miracle journey in mind when he called me to buy it.
I never thought we would be in @goodhousekeeping magazine, but life throws you amazing curves ❤️ Couldn’t be more grateful to see my children’s story impacting so many people across the world and we hope it’s helping many more children like them find loving forever homes!! Good grab their August edition to find us!
Thanks to @laurenwolters for sending us a photo and letting us know it was out!
