When I quit drinking, I lost a lot of friends.
I had people laugh at me,
and I had them question my reasoning behind why I was giving alcohol up.
I have been pressured a lot to,
“just have a sip”,
and I’ve had people make me feel like I wasn’t worth hanging out with because I couldn’t “have fun” like they could.
It was really hard for me to navigate not just getting sober on my own,
but also the people I thought were close to me not supporting my decisions.
As well as, looking around...
the temptation is everywhere.
I go to a restaurant, I’m presented with the happy hour drink specials.
I hang out with my family, they drink.
I go to an event/concert, alcohol.
I do my grocery shopping, “how are you doing ma’am? Would you like to sample this wine?”.
But if there is anything I know it’s this,
•My willpower and determination is off the chain 😎 so i knew it was just one more thing I’d have to fight through.
•If your circle doesn’t support you and your decisions, it’s time for a new circle.
And honestly, as harsh as that sounds..
Everyone has their season in your life.
And as we grow, and change, its completely normal to want to surround yourself with people who support you & cheer you on!
I always get asked if I plan on drinking again.
And I don’t know the answer to that 🤷🏼♀️
but what I do know is that I have come this far,
and I’m proud of that.
And I have shown myself that I can overcome and rise above something that was trying to control and destroy me.
I am in control now, and I’ve never been happier ♥️

Very Proud! Yesterday while serving Medical Records Subpoenas I ran into my former 7th grade Civics student Claudia from West Miami Middle School. She is now an adult, with a job ar the hospital, and going to FNU as she pursues an RN Degree. She gave me a great compliment too. She said my teaching of the US Constitution has helped her in life. I am truly thankful for her comment and proud of her accomplishments. Education is very important. Being a role model is important. Teachers who care about students are very important. I am always here to support education as well as all my former students and athletes. #proudformerteacher #wmms #education #latepost #aboutyesterday #in #proud #science #civics #fnu #ilovemystudents

A friend posted this and I had to copy it. I have spent a lot of the past two months learning to embrace this. What I always strived for professionally, while unbelievably rewarding, was also consuming a great deal of my happiness. I have watched many of those I love receive cancer diagnoses, or recurrence of cancer, or were taken far too young (age 40) by cancer. I’ve watched lives turned upside down by traumatic events, forever altering the reality that previously existed for them. I’ve watched others struggle with chronic illness while their families stand by helplessly watching them fade away. You know what??? I want to spend time being a friend, and a mom, a wife, a grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, mentor, and coworker. I’m proud of myself for making an emotionally difficult decision that allows me to be someone i will never regret being. #onward #upward #bemyself #proud
Yesterday my mum helped me do the grocery shopping and wrangle both kids. As we were walking past the flowers, Kayleb whispered to me “Jess can I buy Nana flowers?” He then went and picked some beautiful roses, took my card and payed for them by himself, the whole time my mum thought he was getting them for me until Kayleb turned around and said “here Nana” 😍 My heart filled with so much pride and love it could have exploded ❤️ What a gentleman 😍🥰 #stepson #love #gentleman #ourcrazylife #proud #stepmama

I wanted to share some highlights from my final design project for an engineering course i am finally FINISHED with!
my group and I decided to create a robot that could pick up trash around campus. our main goal was a create self-sufficient design so that there would be minimal human exposure with this robot. it should be able to do everything on its own! we accomplished this through the use of high tech sensors, electric motors, multi-directional omni wheels, and a bin dumping capability. with a good enough code, this robot would be able to differentiate trash from any other objects it may encounter on a college campus.
there are certainly various flaws in our design, such as the use of costly and heavy materials, and overall large dimensions, but nevertheless, I am very proud of how it turned out. our TA even told us that our project was by far the most innovative and unique design pitch he has seen from that class! I was blessed to have a great group for this project and I am glad we were able to all come together and think out of the box a bit.
now, one class down, four more to go! only 5 more days of classes 🤯 this semester FLEW by.

Smile more often! 😊 That’s the motto of this photo. 🥰Sometimes you get caught up in your everyday life, sometimes you need someone or something to give you that pause that you need. That moment where you are present in the moment. Today at 2pm was one of those moments. Daly received the Respect award at school. The best part of this, is that she was voted by her peers. As that wasn’t enough, 2 students wrote a few special words about Daly. I will share on stories! As if that wasn’t enough, the teacher gave the class the opportunity to add on to what those students had already said. Three more student stepped forward and started speaking about Daly from the heart ❤️ at that moment I could not hold the tears in any longer. At the same time the student next to me says “ Any parent would be proud of their daughter” and then this student started crying with me 🙏🏻 Then, Daly started tearing up!! I guess I can say it was a moment that impacted so many people! ❤️😍 I would love to hear your proud moments! Please share on comments or DM is its personal!
Sonríe mas a menudo! 😊 Ese es el lema de esta foto. A veces te encuentras atrapado en tu vida cotidiana, a veces necesitas a alguien o algo que te de esa pausa que necesitas. Ese momento donde estás presente en el momento. Hoy a las 2pm fue uno de esos momentos. Daly recibió el premio Respeto en la escuela. La mejor parte de esto es que sus pares la votaron. Como eso no fue suficiente, 2 estudiantes escribieron algunas palabras especiales sobre Daly. ¡Compartiré historias!

🔥Entretenir sa motivation n'est pas une question de discipline, mais d'habitude et de rester concentré sur son objectif. 🔥
Mettez en pratique une de ces clés et vous aurez la motivation nécessaire pour atteindre vos objectifs.👊🏻 Les voici:👇🏻 🗝Prenez-vous un coach. Investir avec un coach vous aidera à garder votre motivation, à faire le point et à décider des actions futures à mettre en place avec lui. 🗝Inspirez-vous d’un ami, d’une personnalité, trouvez-vous une inspiration. S’inspirer est l’un des meilleurs outils pour entretenir votre motivation. 🗝Écrivez votre objectif. Inscrivez sur papier les raisons pour lesquelles vous le faites. Méditez régulièrement sur vos objectifs et sur les motifs qui vous poussent à les faire. Le moins d’improvisation, plus les résultats seront au rendez-vous. 🗝Visualisez-vous comme si vous avez déjà atteint cet objectif. Se voir meilleur, en progression c’est ultra-motivant. 🗝Donnez du temps au temps. Plus facile à dire qu’à faire… Le problème est que nous voulons des résultats rapides. Soyez patient, la clé réside dans la constance : fixez-vous comme premier objectif de persister, par exemple. 🗝Trouvez-vous un/une partenaire. Rester motivé par soi-même reste un challenge. Trouvez-vous un partenaire avec des objectifs similaires. 🗝Notez vos progrès dans un journal. 🗝Vous devez avoir du plaisir. C’est le point le plus important. Le plaisir devrait l’emporter sur le temps que cela vous prendra.
Indique-moi si ça t’aide🆒
Je suis fier de toi. Tu deviens 100% responsable un jour à la fois.
