Don’t compare your life to others. You don’t know the foundation others are building their lives on. ⠀ ⠀ I heard this from a teacher and it just made sense!

#selfcaresunday is in FULL effect over here today. I need it! Correction: WE need it. 😩⁣ ⁣ Deep conditioning my natural tresses while steaming my face before I commence with the full skin care regime. I'm trying out a new routine so if it works how I hope, I'll share in a future IG or blog post (once it's finally up again! For now, sign up for email updates - link in bio)⁣ ⁣ How are you all taking care of yourselves today? If nothing else, take a minute... say a prayer... take a deep breath... read a favorite text (if you need to borrow some of mine, I'll list them below 💜).⁣ ⁣ Sending extra love and hugs to everyone. Tell someone you love them today, starting with yourself 🥰⁣ ⁣ Some of my favorite text reminders:⁣ ⁣ * Isaiah 41: 10, 13⁣ * Psalms 34: 18⁣ * Philippians 4: 6,7⁣ * Psalms 9: 9⁣ * Philippians 4:13⁣ * Lamentations 3: 55-57⁣ * 1 Peter 5: 6,7⁣ * Psalms 34: 4,6⁣ * Psalms 37: 34-36⁣ * Isaiah 65: 17-25⁣ * Revelations 21: 4⁣ * John 5:25⁣ ⁣ xoxo and bom dia 😘⁣ ⁣ #consistencychallenge

No. Don't give up hope just yet. It's the last thing to go. When you have lost hope, you have lost everything. And when you think all is lost, when all is dire and bleak, there is always hope. #hope #endure #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneur #perseverance #consistency #getup #moveforward #failforward #positivevibes #businessman #vigor #determination #consistencychallenge #hope #courage

Anyone that knows me personally and my family, know that we are comprised of many races; Hispanics (all kinds), black, Indian and Asian and I’m sure there is more that we are unaware of. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yes, I was one of those kids that were taught to be kind to everyone regardless of color or race BUT there was also an underlining racism in my family where we weren’t allowed to bring home certain races as friends or partners. The funny thing is as we grow, we know right from wrong. We come into ourselves knowing and forming our own opinions and changing the way we see things. My family always said I brought home the “United Nations.” Meaning: I had friends and relationships with people from every race and color. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fast forward years later... my husband and I had similar upbringings. It has always been so important to us that we break that cycle and create an environment where our kids felt safe and anyone brought into our family felt safe, people around us accepted and safe with no judgment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our motto for our family was always: “this family does not see color, gender, race or sexuality.... we are all equals.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WRONG! As our society continues to get worse and regress... it is so important that we now say: “our family sees color, race, gender, sexuality, etc and we LOVE, HONOR, and RESPECT EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I pray for change in this world especially as we bring more children into this world. We all have the ability to change this and break cycles that existed in our families. This affects all of us! Raise our youth to be kind and respect one another. They are never too little to learn! And you are NOT too old to change! . . . #parenting #breakthecycle #justiceforgeorgefloyd #mixedbabies #mixedfamilies #consistencychallenge #consistencyiskey #weneedchange #equality #stopracism #bethelightinthedarkness #bethechange #prioritychange #perspectiveshift #endracism #mommyblogger #parentblogger #unitedinmotherhood #parentinglife

On May 5th @themattiejames said “You rent your social media”. I have never had a hotter fire under my ass than that statement and I got to working harder than ever. I recreated my dream website and then I started to send proposals and emails. I knew that it was time to not only show up daily for the #consistencychallenge but show up for my business as well. I own my email list and website so it was time to do the things to grow my list and my revenue. I showed up daily with greater intention on telling my story, showcasing my business and cultivating community. This was the best challenge ever and now I am ready to help 10 dope small business Show Up and Out for their Brands here on social and IRL. Starts tomorrow!!!!!

Happy Sunday Fit Friends!!! 🌞 Today as we hiked another mountain, we talked, we prayed, about all the things happening in this land we call home. What a year this has been so far. 💔⁣ ⁣ It’s hard to find your peace when you feel anger, frustration and all the other emotions that comes with seeing injustices done over and over to people who look like you. ⁣ ⁣ Raising black men in a country that constantly devalues their life. Makes parenting 2 young black kings that much harder. ⁣ ⁣ It’s been a rough first half of 2020. ⁣ ⁣ Movement is one of the ways I find my peace at times. ⁣ ⁣ 𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐟𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐩𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐭𝐨𝐝𝐚𝐲? ⁣

MAY 31st SAY IT SUNDAY Seriously, what really matters? What matters is being a decent, kind and caring Human Being. What matters is realizing that the world does not revolve around you as an individual but includes you as well as the rest of the human beings. What matters is that injustice for one is injustice for all. What matters is that your silence is taking a side also. What matters is that right is right and wrong is wrong. What matters is that this is your problem also. What matters is that do unto others as you would have them do unto you is a commandment. What matters is that racism is real and people are righteously angry. What matters is that BLACK LIVES MATTER What matters is that YOU MATTER What matters is that I MATTER. Focus on WHAT MATTERS what TRULY MATTERS #blm #selfportrait #endracism #blacklivesmatter #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #consistencychallenge

And just like that, I've had my FIRST successful online course launch! Today, my life-changing course Securing Your Purpose and Increasing the Bag is closing...⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ Sis, if you want to still register hit the link in my bio and head over to www.coachingwithdrmicaela.com 𝐁𝐔𝐓 today is the 𝐋𝐀𝐒𝐓 day! ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ This experience is amazing and I am thankful for all the women who have decided that they ready for an amazing transformation. ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ Throughout this journey, I received so many questions. I thought I would share a few answers:⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ 🗣️Someone asked, 'How are you different? They're so many coaches?'⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ ✅My response, "There are! I am a coach that loves great coaches. The difference is my signature framework, where the goal isn't just launching a business. The goal is to create a generational wealth shift that will create financial freedom for every following generation to come. We're done with the rat race! That's one of the main reasons some clients aren't a good fit for coaching style. This is life-changing business coaching and not a trend."⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ 🗣️Someone asked, 'Why should I invest in you?'⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ ✅My response, "You aren't investing in me. You're investing in yourself and you believe that I have the ability to help you create the transformation you want to see in your life."⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ 🗣️Someone asked, "Does coaching REALLY work?'⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ ✅My response, "Does my business 'look' like it's working? In less than a year, I have scaled my business to a solid additional 5-figure income. I have two coaches and just started working with a copywriter. We're going up and up! So the short answer is, YES!" ⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ 🔜What happens now? I have some amazing things launching in June and it's my birthday month!⁠ ⁠ For today, I rest and spend time working through my GrandMama's photo albums. I have a new photography digital project that I'm starting for all the generations of my family!⁣⁠ ⁣⁠ It's been a heavy, heavy season. Cut off the TV, unplug, and rest!⁣⁠ ⁠ And shoutout to @themattiejames with the #consistencychallenge movement! It's our last day BUT I'm sticking with it!⁠

This is the only thing I’ve really missed since quarantine. Getting my nails done is what I do for self care. It starts with searching for ideas + inspiration. It’s the bomb ass playlist in the background. The conversations. It’s the friends you make on Wine Night. It’s a safe space. Thank you ❤️ @tnailbar . . . #nails #nailsofinstagram #tnailbar #nailfie #selfcare #safespace #healingspace #newfriends #nailsalon #consistencychallenge

Today is Pentecost Sunday, and these are photos from Pentecost Sunday 2017! Pentecost celebrates the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples of Jesus after his Ascension, held on the seventh Sunday after Easter. On this Pentecost, I am praying for each and everyone of you all who stumble across this post. I pray the Holy Spirit descends on you to give you comfort in these uncertain times. I pray you get a peace that man’s understanding cannot explain, but it’s peace that comes from the Holy Spirit! May His power show up in our world like never before and in your life may his blessings and healing power overflow in abundance! Even though it may not feel like it when you watch the news and see the state of the world, God is still with you so seek His face like never before! I love you and am praying for you! #pentocost #theyasminmarie #prayer #praying #consistencychallenge @nathalie_michelle_

Serenity Sunday! Whew! At times it is hard to breathe for reasons that have nothing to do with the pandemic! In such moments sometimes you must fall back and appreciate small things like sunlight on the porch and the way you turned your porchspace into a sidewalk cafe to do your work. You notice the way your outdoor workspace is a mood and you must have a thing for pineapples. 🍍You notice the way you have perfected the froth on your morning cup of mason jar coffee, and the way the birds are singing songs that are not in heavy rotation on the radio. You notice how the nearby sound of traffic is steady and reminiscent of 3 months ago. You feel how the winds kissing the leaves carry messages of hope and you find a way to breathe even though the air is heavy. Peace and blessings #consistencychallenge #consistencypays #breathe

It's Sunday, and I would normally encourage you to plan your tasks and create a routine for the week. ✏ However, this Sunday is different. Today, I'm asking you to REST. Rest your mind. Turn off the news. Stay off of social media. Rest your mind and body so you can have the strength to carry on.✋ As you rest, take a moment to pray and meditate. Ask God for wisdom concerning what He wants you to do (James 1:5). 💕 Yes, we are angry. Yes, we are sad and hurting. But we MUST KEEP GOING. 💪 Take the time to rest because in the days ahead we have work to do.

Post, pray, cry, march, but when you've done what you need to do, turn off social media, silence your mind, and find something positive to focus on. Get back to feeling good. . All of this stress, fear, anger and negativity is an energetic feild that is encompassing the planet right now and we need as many people, who are able, to radiate love and positivity. This will bring balance. . We can not find peaceful solutions while we are in the vibration of hatred and fear. . So do what you need to do, but find a way back to peace as quickly as possible. . We must find a way to come together peacefully or more blood will be shed! . I love you! We are in this together!!! . . . . . . . . . . #consistencychallenge #prayforus #justiceforgeorgefloyd #blacklivesmatter #riots #peace #peacefulwarrior #wewantchange #change #weneedchange #prayforamerica #notmypresident #notmyamerica #protest

I’m literally this excited, and proud of myself. I did it guys.🙌🏽I freaking did it! 💪🏽 I completed the #consistencychallenge started by our girl @themattiejames 😊 It was definitely a challenge for me. However, it was completely worth it. This challenge has changed me in a good way. It has taught me the importance of scheduling content and the time to create it. It exposed me to an entire community of women of color on the same journey as me. My favorite part of the challenge was showing myself that I can consistently follow through with something, and success will come as a result of my hard work. #consistencypays

Was surrounded by weeds in the backyard and found this when I looked up.. Sometimes you can find a moment of peace if you look up. Protect your peace. #ConsistencyChallenge #ConsistencyPays #nature #butterfly #spring #life #beauty
