This is a very dorky and flashy picture of me taken when I was in my 2nd year of mbbs.
Most of the things have changed now except for the smile, the stethoscope and the apron.
There came a time in my career a few months back when I no longer identified myself with the passion with which I'd started this journey ,the reason being that I had completely burnt out myself by working like a machine and forgotten how to make time and do the things I loved to. I did make a few impulsive decisions in the quest of finding the happiness that had been lost. But do you know what I learned instead? That the happiness and the passion I was searching for outside was always within me and all I had to do to understand this one simple sentence(not so simple infact) was to take a break from all that was happening and figure out life as a whole and my role in it.
Today I'm recharged,rejuvenated, stabilized and determined to leap over all those barriers which seemed insurmountable in the past.
On this note, I wish you all a very Happy Doctor's Day and pray that all of you'll remain healthy, happy and strong,even though it means mere pett pe laath! 😜

I'm beyond happy and grateful for being in this stage of my life and the things coming. This hiatus was necessary and I loved every part of it. Time to get back to making my dreams a reality. I'm in a new place with new ideas and more excited then ever. 🖤💙💜 let's gooo
So... is parenting a dog the same as parenting a human?
Simple answer = NO
But for a moment can we call a truce? I’m not here to compare by any means but bottom line I have a sick girl on my hands.
My heart feels for her and she tries to tell me that she needs to go out NOW. We were woke up in the middle of the night with a huge mess and I continued to be up every single hour to tend to her last night before rationalizing that it was a good time to start the day. #exhausted
Long story short, when our babies hurt, we hurt. When they need us we are there and when they want to cuddle we cuddle. And as they start to feel better we are grateful for all moments of health, happiness and love.

Some things money can't by. I've never been impressed by money or status. Never compare your life to another. I'd rather be poor with someone who is loyal and loves me back than wealthy and lonely. #truth #realness #healthhappinesslove #thatsallreally
For all the times that I forgot to “thank you,”For all the special, little things you do,
For all the words that sometimes go unspoken,I need to say “I love you, Mom… I do.” I love you for the way you stop and listen,And for your support throughout the years,For teaching me the meaning of compassion,And sharing in my triumphs and my tears. For all the times for checking on me if I reached home OK... For all the times that I have had a meal... And for standing by me when I needed you the most.... You are my rock ! No matter how much I say Iove you... I will always love you more than that ❤❤ #merimaa #maa #happiestbirthdaymom #healthhappinesslove

When I took this photo this morning I had a hard time allowing myself to be proud of it. That old part of me what to nic-pic apart my body. The roll under my arms and back, the stretch marks, etc. I fought against using a silly app (let’s be real, we all think about doing it!) to tuck it all in. Why do we care so much about what others think of our bodies? How is that a thing?!
I took a moment to realize that damn. This body I have is bangin’. I work hard everyday in the gym. Keep my nutrition tight. It’s the body I always dreamed of. Strong, powerful but most of all HEALTHY.
It’s not about what others think. It’s about what you think about yourself and how you FEEL in your body.
If you feel self-conscious, if you feel sluggish, sick, tired, depressed, and unhealthy, then change it! And wanting change is ok but only make these changes for you! Be a little selfish and put yourself first. Say I am doing this for me because I am worth being healthy!
This is one of the hardest lessons I had to learn! Was changing was ok. Changing for myself wasn’t selfish. Putting my health, needs and goals first isn’t selfish. Because all those things help me be the best me for those who need me.
Loving myself and taking care of me is how I stay happy and vibrant in my life.
My point to putting this all out there is to guide anyone else struggling in their life with the same issues that you can find happiness. You can find health. You can live as your best self but it starts with not caring about what others think and putting yourself first. Your health and happiness matters too!
What’s your thoughts on this issue? Tell me why you struggle with putting yourself at the top of the list?

This kiddo right here ❤️. She is reason why I push myself as hard as I do. She is my inspiration to be a role model for her, and to keep fighting for my goals. She makes me want to be a better, stronger, overall healthier person, not just physically, but mentally and emotionally. I hope that I can show her that reaching her goals will take work, focus and energy, but that she should embrace it, not fear it. I hope she learns that it’s ok to make time for yourself every day and that it’s not selfish. It’s necessary. I hope she knows that there will be times where she has to choose between sticking to her plan vs something that’s maybe more fun.... and that no matter what she chooses, it’s ok!! I hope she learns that it’s ok to say no to something that doesn’t fit her goals and mission in life. I hope she chooses the more difficult path and strengthens herself throughout her whole life. #mybaby #bethebestversionofyourself #betherolemodelkidslookupto #raisingstrongkids #healthhappinesslove #lovehertoomuchforwords #mommyandme
Starting over sucks. But don't be hard on yourself for having to go back to square one. We all fall off the health/fitness wagon, the most important thing to remember is that it's always there for you to climb on to again. Do it for you, not just to reach a certain number on the scale. A healthy mind needs a strong body and vice versa so one can thrive in life.

Health, happiness and love. We all want it. All of us. I have found that when I am my healthiest, I am my happiest and with that, I am more loving and lovable. Since I have been using doTERRA essential oils (and supplements), I have become a healthier person. I sleep better, I have more energy, I feel less stressed, digestion is great and my immune system has never been better. This foundation leaves me with a great sense of well-being and energy to extend care to others. It’s a lifestyle dedicated to self-care and well-being which becomes contagious. What a beautiful contagion, especially in these times of fight & flight. I invite you to this lifestyle; come walk with me! And for those who are taking this journey, what is one of your favorite oils?

So a couple of days ago I got into an accident. In my 36 years of life I’ve never been involved in one like this...so naturally it shook me a little bit. I spent the last two days trying to figure out how this happened and although my amazing husband has been nothing but supportive I do feel a sense of guilt for not being more careful. Thankfully my truck had minimal damage and will be on its way to getting fixed very soon...but I am even more thankful to not have had my babies with me when this happened. So I need to stop looking at the cup half empty and start listening to those telling me..”it’s fine!” “Sh*t happens.” This could have naturally been so much worse...so I really need to remember that sometimes we have to be shaken a little bit to remember our blessings. I could have EASILY used this as an excuse to not get my workouts in...to not eat right...I could have justified the getting off track. BUT I chose not to.....I chose not too because I no longer am doing this alone....I am doing this with a team. A team who are there for one another and to cheer ourselves on when every ounce does not want to get it done. THEY are my reason to push through....and that’s what an accountability group is meant to be for! I am thankful for them all and hope that by them seeing me trucking along no matter the hurdles ...they use that as motivation just like they motivate me every single day!
Happy Thursday my beautiful friends! Count your blessings and relish in what you do have and not on what you don’t. 💗

When life keeps throwing you challenges lately, but you try to stay positive...
...you get out of bed, put on your workout clothes, brave the extreme cold, and go workout with 70 fellow health coaches at your quarterly conference...
Health coaching not only helps me help friends and family, it also allows me to support the most important person in my life, my fiancé!
I’m thankful to coaching for not only helping me find a way to deal with grief in a positive way, but also now helping my fiancé deal with grief in a healthy outlet. An intense workout helped put a smile on our faces today when we needed it most!

2018, I’m ready for you.✨ If 2017 taught me anything it’s that sometimes life is about having the courage to chase your dreams, little by little, one step at a time. And sometimes it’s about embracing the things that scare you most and taking a big leap. 2018, can’t wait to see what you have in store 💛✨ #happynewyear #2018goals #SML #chasinggoals #healthhappinesslove #anaisnin
