WEEK 4 and 400+ followers! 💕 You all are so beautiful and supportive! 💕 When I began my original account @runningpossum 2 years ago, at my daughters ( @macie_bee ) urging because I was so frustrated with FaceBook, I had no idea how much I would enjoy connecting with people of like interests all over the world! 💕 Thank you for all the love and inspiration! 💕

STOP GETTING DISTRACTED BY THINGS THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR GOALS.
You are wildly capable of your dream job.
You just have to try. Then try again. Then try again the next day, week, month. Then when you think you can’t do it... TRY AGAIN.
Stuck? Ask for help.
Not sure what to do. Ask for help.
Keep that head up. Put that smile on. And keep going, until you succeed. YOU GOT THIS.

Feeling alone? Like people around you just don’t understand you? Like you’re different than most people? Like you’re not on the same path at all? Like something just doesn’t click?
I understand you. I have felt that way so many times.
You’re on this journey looking for more in life. You’re sick of the negativity surrounding you daily. You know you can do great things, if you only had the courage to just do it. You’ve changed immensely, in a good way. You’re on your way to bigger and better things. People around you see you and tell you you’re glowing! Yet... You feel so... Alone.
You’re not alone. I know you wish you could just find “your people”, your tribe, your crew... The place you actually feel like you belong. The ones who are on the same path as you. Those who understand you and share the same interests as you.
These people are out there, waiting to find you too. The first step? Believing these people are searching for you too. ✨ —
This is why I created Kindred Connection!

Be your own kind of beautiful 🧚♀️
The girl that started this blog was scared, a little lost and lacking confidence on how she can make impact in this huge world. •
I am so proud of who I am now and not afraid to be confident in who I am. I’m weird, strong, confident, kind, and a little blunt some times 😂 and that’s okay. •
Now, don’t get me wrong, I have a lot to work on, but don’t forget to stop every once in awhile and celebrate about how far you’ve come. •
Growth is important and sometimes it happens literally right before your eyes and other times its slow moving but you go through these phases of life for a reason. Surround yourself with people that push you to grow and support you through the pain points and let go of those that judge, discourage and don’t love you for who you are. •
I've been spending extra time really soaking up my children. 🥰
The way they talk, the way their eyes light up, the conversations we can have when I'm giving them all of my attention.🖤 🤦♀️For so long I felt like I had to be going all the time. Working, meetings, calls, trainings, cleaning, cooking, laundry .... just go go go.
But the mommy guilt that I felt at the end of every busy day was piling up and all I could think of was how much I'd regret it one day.
I can't explain the difference I've experienced since making my transition to my new business... REAL time freedom.

Ya girl is 25 today 🌟 What a wild ride.
I’ve been lost in foreign countries. I’ve made beautiful friendships that span oceans and time zones. I’ve drank sparkling wine in the Austrian Alps, partied with drag queens, marched in protest alongside thousands of women. I’ve met my favorite authors and I’ve danced my heart out at concerts of my favorite bands.
I’ve broken hearts, had my heart broken, made mistake after mistake in love and in life. I’ve written poems for people who didn’t deserve them, thought up hundreds of novels I’ll never start writing, started businesses that quickly failed. I’ve hurt myself and others more than I care to admit. I’ve got trauma that is still being unpacked and processed.
I have nothing but gratitude and love for this journey. This life is so beautifully imperfect—When I stop to think about all of it at once, it’s honestly breathtaking. And to think, it is really only the beginning.
Here’s to 25.
When inquiring to work with us feel free to ask about other design opportunities that you need for your business! I’ll be updating our packages for 2020 to reflect more of an a la carte style so all of our clients can customize packages to fit their needs ☺️

I am grateful for the rain. It helps me to appreciate the sunshine.
They say that after every storm there is a rainbow. And I know this all too well to be true. In February 2014, I heard three most gut wrenching words an expectant mother could ever hear. “There’s No Heartbeat..”
I went into that office full of joy, excitement and butterflies. I went into that office, with my imagination running wild. I was thinking of how I would paint the nursery. Of what books I would read to them. The one thing that I did not think of, was the possibility of losing them.
In the same day I had my very first ultrasound appointment, I found out that I was a mother of twins, and that I would never be able to hold my twins. I never thought I could ever feel so many different emotions, so quickly, in such a short amount of time.
I was in shock. I was in disbelief. I was so overcome with so many different thoughts and feelings that I was just frozen in that moment. My entire body went numb. It took everything I had not to collapse to the floor.
For the longest time, I blamed myself. I played out every possible scenario, where I could’ve put my babies in jeopardy. I thought of every possible “what if” When in reality, it had nothing to do with me, and everything to do with God. He had a plan for me. I just couldn’t see it yet.
But in this incredible loss, I also received incredible gains. I was guided to my amazing church. I was welcomed by an amazing community there. I became an unofficial addition to an amazing family. They took me in as one of their own. They helped me to heal, both spiritually and emotionally. I learned a true lesson in what it meant to not only give, but also receive, unconditional love and support.
A few months later, in the fall of that year, I received my miracle. I was blessed with a beautiful, healthy, rainbow baby. Bayliegh was brought into this world, January 2015. She continues to live up to her title every day.
If you are a mom, whether your babies are in heaven or here on earth, I would love to connect with you! 💕
Leave in the comments section below: “I Love My Babies!“
I look forward to hearing from you! 🥰

SAVE THIS— I’m about to give you My secret on how I turn 1 LIVE video into 4 or more pieces of content 🙌⤵️
I asked you guys answered this is what you wanted.
💫 𝑺𝒕𝒆𝒑 1:
Do the actual LIVE video.
Plan out your title
Write your bullet points.
This is Important— before you POST the live be sure to SAVE IT TO YOUR CAMERA ROLL.
💫 𝑺𝒕𝒆𝒑 3:
The next day grab a picture that goes along with what the topic of your live.
Summarize the meat and potatoes, the good stuff, the juiciest part of the live and turn it into a post.
This is your second piece of content.
Post it on Facebook too, you have three pieces.
Okay, here’s what you’re going to do with the saved video— you’re going to turn it into evergreen content and turn it into an IGTV.
How long was your live?
If it was under 10 mins you don’t really need a lot of editing, edit out any “fluff” and then you can upload straight to IGTV.
Was it longer than 10 mins?
Brainstorm, can you turn this into a 2 or 3 part IGTV video series?
If so, do it.
If not, put your video into InShot or iMovie and edit out the parts of your live you don’t want or need in your IGTV.
Remember your IGTV doesn’t need small talk, it should be packed with the meat and potatoes of your content, the juiciest part, it should get straight to the point.
This could be your third, fourth, fifth, or even sixth piece of content depending on how many IGTVs you get from one live video.
💫 𝐸𝑥𝑡𝑟𝑎 𝑐𝑟𝑒𝑑𝑖𝑡
Post your IGTV videos to Facebook.
Talk about content for days🚀
💫Remember, not every single person is going to see ever single piece of your content.
Save this + tag a biz bestie 👯♀️

Did you know you actually do develop a dependence on caffeine? It truly is an addiction. When you get a headache in the morning when you don’t have your coffee- that’s caffeine withdrawal. No shame! 🤷🏼♀️ Coffee also has some great benefits!
I just recommend avoiding energy drinks- they actually do cause your heart rate to speed up and can even cause your heart RHYTHM to mess up. I’ve seen 17 year old boys with chest pain and SVTs, an abnormal heart rhythm. He was drinking energy drinks daily! Coffee in general does not come close to the mg of caffeine that’s in energy drinks, so it tends to be safer. .

Hi, I’m Lynzee 🙋🏼♀️&
this is my mini me, Bailee Anne!
My focus on this account was Monat haircare ( and it’s still really awesome & important to me) but I’d like to shift my focus to being an everyday kinda girl.
Let me explain.... I’m pretty average. (This isn’t a post to try and garner attention or compliments. It’s just a raw, open glimpse into my heart.) I love to decorate, I enjoy all the typical girl things, like fashion, hair/makeup, shopping. I’m a Christian, a wife, and a mother. My 3 children have all been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Type 1 diabetes. I feel compelled to talk about our life with T1D and try to be an encouragement, spreading hope & advocacy @T1D_sugarbabies
I love my husband, Rhett, chocolate, coffee, Downton Abbey, and thrifting! But with all of this, I’m just average.
I’m not a fancy instagram influencer. I couldn’t do a makeup tutorial, gracious, I can’t even contour my face! I’m no fashionista or HGTV star. Decorating my home on a dime is my jam, but I couldn’t have a large following based on my style or skill. We don’t even have a home right now. 🤦🏼♀️ Are you following my thought? I’m not “wow” at any one thing. (Is there a term for gals like “Jack of all trades?” 🤔) So I’d like to be the everyday girl you follow on IG who is just real, down to earth, and honest about being a hot mess. I’d like to encourage other ladies in their strengths, cheer them on, and bring a little hope and joy through my everyday life. Maybe I will just be average at that too, but that’s ok, because that’s who I am, the Everyday Girl! .

Have you ever just been so sick + tired of feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders because you are the sole income earner?
If you said yes, you are not alone. As an 8 on the enneagram it’s even hard to admit that myself but it’s reality.
I’ve felt powerless before because I wasn’t making enough income and I promised myself I would never feel that way again.
I felt like my options were limited and I had to say no to things I enjoyed, not because I didn’t want to, but because I couldn’t afford it. Sometimes that included doing fun things with my kids 💔 self care practices, and lunch with my girls.
I realized for that to change, I had to make some changes in how I earned income.
My company is more than luxury, naturally-based products, it’s a vehicle to the life of my dreams.
I have the freedom to work when and where I choose, for how long I choose. I decide where to cap my income and when I get a raise 😳 and who doesn’t want that?
Christmas is in 10 weeks! If you could use ELEVEN extra paychecks to have the holidays you’ve always wanted, I invite you to have a convo with me. I currently have five spots on my team this month, I would love for you to fill one of them.
STOP SAYING “I’LL BE HAPPY WHEN...”
Do you find yourself saying this!? 🤦🏼♀️
I know I sure have! TRUST ME! 🤦🏼♀️
I used to say “I’ll be happy when I’m able to quit my night job and be a full time entrepreneur” 🤦🏼♀️
THIS IS SO ASS BACKWARDS!!!!🙅🏼♀️
You have to CHOSE to feel good, CHOSE to feel happy and CHOSE to feel present ALL👏🏼 THE👏🏼 TIME👏🏼 !!
Read that again or as many times as you need to!
Lack attracts lack🔮
Celebrate the wins - yes even the small wins🔮
Be happy and excited for others around you!🔮
Most importantly INVEST IN YOURSELF🔮
If not now - when????🔮
2.5 months left in this DECADE what will you do with them?🔮
Stop waiting to be ready because it’ll never happen!!🔮
If you are TIRED of waiting, TIRED of spinning your wheels, TIRED of staring at your phone just to give up - BABE WE NEED TO CHAT!!!

“This is life. Bad things happen, it’s hard. You find your people, you find your person, and you lean on them.”⠀
Friends come and go, but your person is supposed to stay by your side through thick and thin.⠀
Being someone’s person is not just something you say, it is something you promise.⠀
You promise to always support them, love them, and be their person until the end of time.⠀
Hold on to your person for as long as possible.⠀
Crazy to think without this coaching opportunity and growing my own business, we would have never met each other 🤯⠀

It’s pretty much the worst feeling ever when your sinuses get all stuffed up. You can’t breathe, you struggle to eat, your mouth and lips get dried out, and you just plain feel rotten.
So let me show you my tricks for easing sinus pressure and congestion!
Take 1 mug of boiling hot water, and add 1 drop of each oil. Close your eyes, lean over the steamy goodness and breathe in SLOWLY at first because it’s very strong.
The kids version is much milder than the adults version (swipe to the right) but still super effective at fighting the germs, and soothing the congestion. Reheat this mug and repeat as needed until feeling better!
The latest drop to the Halloween collection aptly titled Boo. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Available on sweatshirts, hoodies, t shirts just for October. Grab one in time for Halloween! Only couple weeks left. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Beyond stunning detailing on this bride’s gown. Absolutely love!
Confidence does not come from “they will like me”. Confidence comes from
“I’m totally fine if they don’t like me!”
Who is with me? 🙋♀️
🇧🇷➡️ A confiança não vem de "eles vão gostar de mim". A confiança vem de
"Eu estou totalmente bem se eles não gostam de mim!"
Quem está comigo? 🙋

When I left my full time position - I almost pooped my pants.
Allllll the things ran through my mind.
BUT WHAT IF my biz fell through?!
BUT WHAT IF I didn’t have enough income to pay the bills?!
BUT WHAT IF BUT WHAT IF BUT WHAT IF?!?
But why? Working 9-5 at a job I didn’t love, that was mentally draining me, and that would keep me away from my daughter more than I’d actually see her... WAS actually my worst case scenario.
Before the career police come at me - that 9-5 grind isn’t for everyone. If you love your career, I’m happy for you - but that’s isn’t everyone’s story.
Even if it came with a comfy salary and benefits, I would be paying someone else to raise my daughter. That didn’t sit well with me.
Living for maybe two weeks off a year... didn’t sit well with me.
Missing out on Olivia’s firsts... didn’t sit well with me.
Spending more time with coworkers than my family... didn’t sit well with me.
I could go on and on.
But I TOOK THE LEAP. I went all in with my business (from hobby in 2017- side hustle 2018- full time 2019 WOAH!)
I told my husband, we would make it work and waved goodbye to the full time 9-5 grind, and to be honest - it’s the best decision I’ve made for myself, mentally.
And you know what I’ve gained? TIME. That shit, you don’t get back. And FREEDOM. To work, but around time with Olivia. And it feels so good!
I’ll be damned if there’s ONE of you following me that lives a mediocre life because, I didn’t share my story or share this opportunity because sally from high school doesn’t approve. Yep. I said it - We all have a sally!
I wish I could bottle up courage and give it to every woman feeling stuck right now. Wishing for more time, more freedom. To give her that push to pursue her dreams, to let go of what she’s “suppose to do” and what others may think of her.
If you have that feeling that you’re made to be doing more - don’t ignore it. Let it fuel you sister, LIVE OUT YOUR DREAMS. Go all in with your passion. Follow that fire. Do not live your life feeling STUCK - what a waste?!
You get one chance at this life and you’re not guaranteed forever. You are indeed made for more.

In the words of Shania, “yeah, I feel like a woman.” 🎶 Doot do do do doot do. 🎵 .
I received this yesterday for a product review. 😊 I’m excited about the Bamboo Charcoal Mask but a wee bit apprehensive about something called SNAIL CREAM 😳 🐌 Anyway, found it on @amazon but cannot find the company, Cosmask by DAKIK on IG to tag.
