ᵂᴱᴿᴮᵁᴺᴳ︱Just be yourself 💫 There isn’t anyone better, who you can be.
Which 3 character traits do you like most about yourself? Let me know and inspire the others with your answer.
I’ll begin... I like that I am empathic, curious and determined.
And now it is your turn! 👇🏻
I like to take photos and wait a few weeks before I upload them. 😂
I thought it would be a good time to do a re-introduction, being that I have a few new friends. Here are some fun facts about myself:
1. I’m married. My sister introduced my hubby and I. (Thank you, @ceciliamoya25😉)
2. I’m the oldest of my siblings.
3. I’m terrified of heights.
4. I’m obsessed with true crime shows.(Forensic Files, Snapped, 48 hours, etc.)
5. I’m Latina and I’m fluent in Spanish.
Instead of asking you to share something about yourself, I’m going to add a few polls to my stories that have absolutely nothing to do with anything! 😂 They are just random “this or that” polls so I can get to know y’all better. Happy evening my friends. .

Ao longo desses meses fui vos pedido opinião , e as respostas acabam por ser sempre as mesmas... QUE PREFEREM TER TUDO NUM SÓ LOCAL!! E faz sentido... é bem mais prático se tudo for feito num local só!! Eu falo por mim por vezes tenho preguiça de sair daqui do insta para ir ver o que quer que seja fora!! E acredito que com algumas de vocês acontece o mesmo 🙈🤣 E está tudo certo!! E devido ao que fui analisado ao longo desses meses todos, e depois de ver a vossa opinião e a do marido... foi a hora de tomar essa decisão! A partir de hoje , irei apenas e EXCLUSIVAMENTE criar conteúdo aqui para o Instagram, sejam, fotos, vídeos, reviews, TUDO será feito apenas aqui! O blog e o YouTube vão ficar activos na mesma, porque nunca se sabe o dia de amanhã mas... será assim até eu SOFIA PEREIRA OLIVEIRA GOMES ATINGIR O MEU GRANDE OBJECTIVO AQUI NO INSTAGRAM!! 💪🏻 Estou no foco mais que nunca e sei que ...

YOUR SPRAY TAN SHOULD BE BOMB: 👆🏻Me laughing when people tell me that all spray tans are orange. YALL. If you are going to someone (or a machine) and they are turning you orange (or making you look streaky or unnatural) please don’t hesitate to MAKE THE SWITCH. You deserve to be wearing a spray tan that makes you feel amazing. One that looks natural and brown. One that is tailored to YOU. I will deliver that every single time. You deserve to be tanned by someone who has trained and studied and researched this craft. You deserve to be tanned by someone who makes you feel comfortable and listens to your concerns and questions. You deserve to get an AMAZING spray tan. I mean, that’s what you’re paying for, right?
If you’re considering making the switch to a new spray tan lady, don’t hesitate! You know where to find me. 😎 The closer it gets to summer, the busier I’m getting and I’m obsessed. 😭 Thank you so much to all of my new and old clients! You all fuel my dreams and I’m so grateful for your loving support. Now go have a bomb Tuesday babes!💜 And just be YOU. 👊🏼

Me encantan mis ojos, me gusta mucho mi cabello y amo mis piernas, me gustan las pecas que tengo en los hombros y que mis orejas sean tan pequeñas🤷🏼♀️
No tengo el físico “perfecto” pero mientras a mi me guste creo que estamos bien, agradezco lo que mi cuerpo hace por mí y trato de hacer bastante por él💪🏼
Ámate tu mismo, ámate tu misma, ya verás que con el tiempo llegará la persona que te complemente, si así tu lo deseas♥️
New hiking boots... means I’m committed to getting into the great outdoors in 2020🥾💙
First hike wearing these yesterday was an absolute stunner on the George Bass Coastal Trail, 16 km with a great crew and lunch at Kilcunda before the return hike, we all loved it! what a perfect sunny day it was☀️
Feeling grateful for the chance to enjoy a part of our spectacular coastline here in Victoria that I hadn’t explored before😍 #lifebeginsatfifty#embracinglife#funfifties#agepositive
Are you a perfectionist? ☺️ One of the most common reason as to why people give up on their dreams, life/career goals is for fear of judgment .
I actually forced myself to post these pictures today although I thought they weren’t really that good and had “nothing great about them” but then I thought why do we always have to be so obsessed about PERFECTION?
There could be thousand of people right now who want to post a certain picture or start a certain business but they don’t do it as they are scared they are not going to be perfect and people are not going to like their posts as much or they are going to think they are stupid .
Who cares what everyone else thinks? Why would you let this idea of chasing perfection stop your dreams? If you have a goal in your mind or a dream, you need to pursue it because life is too short to have regrets, stop waiting for that perfect job, for that money, for that promotion, for that camera, new phone. Just START!
maybe you are going to be judged and maybe at the beginning you won’t get the support you wish to get, but don’t start to expect a certain reaction from people, start purely for yourself because you deserve to chase every single passion and smash every single goal you have got in your head, just believe in yourself ❤️ .
Oh this girl! Her adventurous heart let’s me know her life is going to be full and happy!

Started helping this client grow out her natural white hair—we’re taking it slow since her hair is short and she wasn’t ready to be all white yet! Here’s just a peek at the sides. Swipe left for the starting point. She’s been coloring her hair at home for years—every 3 weeks! Lightening home color takes a long time—started with Aveda enlightener, one reapplication in the foils after the first 30 minutes pulled it up to a very pale blonde, then a finish toner of clear gloss with a dash of ash matched it to her root. Took us 3 visits and she looked great throughout. 👍🏻@atelieraveda#santanarow#lifeontherow#aveda#avedaartists#avedablonde#naturalwhitehair#growoutyourgray#justbeyou
It’s my birthday today. I still can’t believe I’m 20 like It doesn’t feel real but at the same time I’m not and adult if you think about it well idk. 😅🥴
Here’s the thing.... I’ve worried so much about what people think of me. In the pic on the right my daughter had done my make up, but in the pic on the left, my skin tone is uneven, my hair is extra crazy, my lips are fading into oblivion. But you know if I can’t love my natural self, why should I expect anyone else to. So here ya go absolutely #nofilter but you know what? I don’t care. I’m done letting the judgement of others weigh me done. Don’t really care who you are! #wifeofthefirelife#justbeyou#this is46
Small things lead to BIG change.
Pequeñas cosas conducen a un GRAN cambio.
Having a bamboo toothbrush is one of the first steps you can take to live an ecological life. It is an easy change to make, since it does not require any major lifestyle change. Even so, the plastic waste that minimizes can leave a lasting impact on nature. Choosing one with extra soft bristles can make an even bigger difference. It is soft for sensitive teeth and more friendly to the environment.
Tener un cepillo de dientes de bambú es uno de los primeros pasos que puede seguir para vivir una vida ecológica. Es un cambio fácil de realizar, ya que no requiere ningún cambio importante en el estilo de vida. Aun así, los desechos plásticos que se minimizan pueden dejar un impacto duradero en la naturaleza. Elegir uno con cerdas extra suaves puede marcar una diferencia aún mayor. Es suave para dientes sensibles y más amigable con el medio ambiente.
~ Bucket List ~
As a mumma with 2 girls, I feel like I’ve become more willing to try adventuress things and before you think anything, no I don’t mean attempting on being a stripper or bungee jumping 😂 •
So here’s my Bucket List
- Spend a week in Bora Bora - Drive really fast in a race car
- Convince my husband we need another baby 😂
- Swim with sharks
- Visit New Zealand
- Visit Hawaii for the Jurassic Park tour 😍
The only question now is are the kids invited 😂😂
What’s some of your bucket list things?
I don’t understand teens these days! I want Briana to do whatever she wants and believe she can do anything she desires. I want her to choose on her own whatever she likes. I want her to know that God has her back no matter what she desires. I want to encourage her to stand strong and be brave in who she is. Teens need to believe that they don’t have to be perfect, they just have to be real. The real people in her life will automatically be drawn to her. She stands out but doesn’t fit in and it is good to be unique. 📖 You are beautiful, for you are Fearfully and wonderfully made.

I’m sorry I couldn’t take the time to get a better photo, these chicken thighs looked and smelled so delicious I couldn’t wait to eat!! This is by far my new favorite seasoning! .. If you haven’t tried this @mccormickspice marinade mix, do yourself a favor and RUN to your nearest grocery store and snag a whole box. I promise, you won’t be disappointed!!
“Don’t get angry or insulted. Rise above the bullshit. Flick your light back on and shine it better than ever; and fall so deeply in love with your own life that anyone who tried to wrong you becomes a laughable, ridiculous, distant memory.” #lifelessons#lovelife#justbeyou
I just love Open Houses!! It’s such a wonderful way to meet your vendors, see different ways to set up your decorations in a venue, and book any other vendors you are still looking for. I looooove meeting couples and families and even though it was a brief meeting I look forward to meeting them for our one on one consultations (which are free, by the way). #meetingnewweddingcouples#weddingopenhouse .
I've learned many things during my life but the most important thing I have learned is to never give up.
I started working out and eating better because I was tired if living my life on auto pilot. Always negative, tired and honestly alone. I didn't let people see the real me because I was afraid. Afraid to be judged and ridiculed. Afraid to be more alone than I already felt.
The decision I made to take control of my life and dream bigger than my fear is by far the best decision I have made in my life. I am stronger. I am happier. I am finally becoming me. I have made the decision to help others do the same thing for themselves as well. If you feel anything like how I felt I am here for you and would be overjoyed to help you transform inside and out 💕
The life you live is the result of the choices you make every day. No one else will live your life for you. No one else has any influence over your life unless you let them.
Stop making poor excuses and start making better choices. Start living life on your terms, not anyone else’s. Start listening to that voice inside telling you what will make you happy. 🔥
Yes, living the life you want is scary, but what is the alternative? Staying miserable because you don’t think you can do it? Hearing others saying “you should...”? Looking back on life with regrets? 🔥
It’s time to dance with fear & laugh with life. It’s time to find your “I will...” and leave behind “I can’t & I should”. Find what makes your soul sing & fan that flame until you have no choice but to live a life on fire. 🔥
Dance with fear, laugh with life, weep tears of joy because your soul is so full. Live life with everything you have. Create stories & memories. It’s time to live.
my childhood was perfect, I grew up with two loving and supportive parents and a younger sister who was my biggest fan. I was surround by love and encouragement to be my true self. from the outside looking in it was perfect.⠀
I was always an anxious child, I was shy, I needed to always be with someone, but I also expressed myself, was free and adventurous.⠀
as I grew the anxiety got stronger, I cared more about what people thought of me and less about who I truly was, I did everything I could to be like my friends and to fit in. I kept quiet when it came to my feelings and thoughts. ⠀
I fell into a sport which shaped me and illnesses that helped me cope and I lost who I was without either of them. My identity was claimed and my voice was dimmed. ⠀
As my world starting to change I had no knowledge of who I truly was, I didn’t know how to deal with it and turned easily to everything outside of me to control and numb.⠀
The term “just be you” made no sense. ⠀
I created “just be you” for kids but I slowly learnt it was what I needed all along, I needed to learn who I was from the young age of 7 and I needed to love her and let HER grow. I needed to let myself be free in who I was. Since I feel I missed that for almost 20 years of my life I knew I had to change that for others.⠀
Our “just be you” message starts there and spreads with our community and tomorrow we will be wearing it with pride for #pinkshirtday ⠀
Join us by wearing your pink shirt 💖 tag us in your stories, in your pictures, send us messages and spread it loud and clear that we are starting a movement and we are starting it young, to just be YOURSELF!!⠀

I keep reading so much motivational advice about being your real self, just be you, you are enough just as you are.
But so many times clients come to me because they’ve just lost touch with who they are. And so as well-meaning as advice is to just be yourself it can actually cause real anxiety and even depression as people feel so lost because they don’t know who they are.
I think it’s worth remembering that yes indeed we are all spiritual beings first and so to live an authentic life, we do need to embrace our spiritual aspects.
But of course we are so much more than that. We are also physical and we are meant to be embracing our physical world so we must show up in the physical expression of ourselves and this is where ‘who am I?’ becomes a more complicated question.
Well who you are some would say is who you want to be. Others might say that who you are is the sum total of all you have experienced. And and yet others again may say that you’re just a product of your biological identity.
Well I would say that all of these factors play a part in shaping and determining a portion of who you are but they are not static they are evolving processes that you’re living through.
Bruce Lipton tells us that our DNA is actually not so important in determining our reality but rather our consciousness in determining the reality we seek plays a bigger role.
I believe that we should embrace the idea that who we are changes over time and who we were 10 years ago most likely is not who we are today. And I don’t think that means that we were being inauthentic necessarily in the past, it just means we’ve evolved, we’ve changed, we’ve grown.
Expansion means that we will change over time. We always things to be permanent and fixed so we can ‘know’ and relax. But nothing’s constant and we have to embrace change.
So I think in answering the big question we should really focus on:
Who am I today?
What makes me happy today?
What makes me feel fulfilled today?
What do I want to be doing today?
These questions will calm the anxiety about the ‘big question of life’ who am I? Take the pressure off. Relax. All is well.
Much Love 💛

Weeding out the ones who don't swim in the depths is a process. But it's one that's worth it. Shallowness bores me. Bring me to the point of gasping for air because you've taken my breath away with your authentic truth. Share with me your hardest trials and how you overcame them. Tell me what it felt like to be alone for the first time. Show me pictures of when you were a child and tell me your happiest memories. Talk to me about what goes on in your mind and what you're feeling in your heart, about all the things, and don't skip a moment. I wanna know what makes you, you.
It's super sexy when you show your authentic, naked self.
Today I continued my journey in #socialjustice work with Justice Leaders here in Washtenaw County. There was an epiphany for me in regards to #sex , #gender , and #genderexpression . I was born as and #identify as a female, but largely do not identify as #feminine . This has caused some internal conflict...that I am "other", that I'm "lesser than" because I do not participate in feminine-type hobbies and habits. I'll wear a dress with combat boots, I enjoy hiking and kayaking, I would rather hang out with "the boys", I dont wear make up, do my hair, or wear jewelry. There has been a disconnect for me because I never felt as if I "fit in" to the social construct. Somehow, recognizing "gender expression" has taken me to a new understanding of myself...and in turn, others who live as "other". I see you. You are not broken. And neither am I.
What you don’t see is the Mental Transformation!

This post is for you, the person ready for a new way of BEing
You are the person prepared for a fresh perspective (a paradigm shift) & ready to tell a new story- where the main character's heart is healed & feels whole and complete
Where this character's life has been created with health & abundance at the forefront
Living a Colorful Conscious Life experienced on a sturdy foundation of Inner-Peace & Ultimate WellBeing
Did you know- between the ages of 0-7 (by 2nd grade), we have formed our bedrock foundational beliefs about ourselves, others & how the world around us works?
This is when we did, or did not, learn about self-care, self-love, self-worth, self-value & self-respect
During this time, a story is created on how we "should" relate to ourselves, others & our environment instead of finding a rhythm of authentic flow
The character we create for ourselves is based on external information learned at this level of consciousness- the words used with us, the behaviors of others around us & significant learning experiences-have shaped our Identity, who we are in this very moment
This is how our subconscious programming was created & runs 95% of our day. This 95% makes up, as @drjoedispenza calls- your personal reality, which is ultimately your Personality
Are you ready to step into the Identity & Personal Purpose you were called here to live at this time of Awakening?
When I said yes & stepped into my authentic BEing- this is a little snippet of wisdom & science I incorporated to help me heal my heart & understand the programs that lead to my collapse into Burnout & how I found myself out of a Dark Night of the Soul
If you answered yes, like I did, it is time to let go of how you once viewed yourself, who "they" told you you were & how to be
Instead, step into who you came here to BE- the vibrational frequency of LOVE & take action from this healed heart-center space
Can you feel that person's energetic essence? That is the magnetic pull of Future You calling you forward
If you are looking for more on how to heal & move towards Blissful Wellbeing, let's connect! You do not have to do it alone

I’m feeling a Grace~Grit~Grow blog post coming on😳. Sister, please remember that your life is not a suggestion box. You already know how to be an amazing person. In fact, you’re already doing it.
There are more people on social media these days telling you how you should be. YOU have God given talents and gifts already inside you. Chances are, you are already using them. If not, simply tap into what’s in your heart my friend. You are not meant to be someone else. Your actions will be your “be-u-tiful” legacy to this world❤️. #gracegritgrow#godgiventalent#yourlife#legacies#realmotherhood#bloggerslife#writinginspiration#justbeyou

I have never had this much abdominal muscle ever. And this program is easier than most programs I normally do and very low impact on old joints.
If someone told me when I was 40 that at 42, 6 months shy of my 43rd birthday 🎁 that I would look like this from doing at home workouts I would have never believed them. So I get why people are skeptical.🤨
Especially when all your friends are selling you something. But here’s the thing. I don’t sell anything. I give back, I give your life back. I give your self confidence back, I give you the best you.
That doesn’t only benefit you. It benefits everyone around you because people love 💕 being around positive hard working people who don’t settle.
Maybe you should join me and do this program with me vs just talking yourself out of another day. I’m only a message away. 😉
I can’t wait to repeat this program and get even more results. 🙌🏼
