During my spontaneous trip to the Pacific North West, I had the opportunity to meet @ccbarber.co at @coavacoffee in Portland.
.
.
The idea sprung from one of @jennakutcher ‘s IG posts and the conversation we had was incredible!
.
.
Two complete strangers meeting for the first time through the power of social media could not have gone better!
.
.
We discussed our lives, our pasts, our hopes and our dreams, in addition to our passions and our faith.
.
.
We shared our love for @msrachelhollis ‘s book “Girl, Wash Your Face” and quotes that have inspired us, CC sharing this one in particular.
.
.
It resonated so a lot because I constantly compare myself to others, unknowingly or not. And I truly hope to overcome this.
.
.
From now on, I plan to view jealousy as motivation to reach the level that others are on and propel my own progress rather than as a tool for comparison. It is seen as the thief of joy because it brings about negative feelings rather than fueling the the fire within your soul.
.
.
Tell me below, how do you deal with comparison and jealousy in your work? What tips do you have to turn negative emotions into motivation?
Good afternoon y’all!
.
.
I’m seeing a lot of new faces on here and I just wanted to do a quick introduction for you guys!
.
.
My name is Ivy and I’m a Florida native currently exploring the Pacific North West 😊
.
.
Some fun facts you might not know about me include:
1. I have one younger brother named Forrest

2. I have two fur babies named Zoey & Firefly

3. I was in lizard club when I was in elementary school

4. I was a 4 year varsity weightlifter in high school

5. I have worked in almost every industry, including doing fiberglass work on Porsche’s and Jaguars

6. I have over 20 chronic illnesses, but I don’t let them define me

7. I have either visited or lived in 14/50 states and I’ll hit number 15 at @campclimb next year!

8. I’ve made 12 moves in 5 years and I already want to move again 😂
.

INTRODUCE: yourself below! I’d love to know more about each and every one of you too!
Last Sunday, I felt called to get out of bed and try a new church. In doing so, I found my home 💜
.
.
Since listening to @scottokc speak, I cried for the first time in Church since being saved and I’ve seen God bring his message full circle every day this week.
.
.
After staying up 24 hours, I hoped on a plane across the country yesterday. And when I should have been sleeping, I spoke about God with the woman seated next to me.
.
.
We shared our lives, our pains, and our passions. She opened her heart and her bible and we shared scriptures. She reconfirmed the path that I believe God has set me on and I think I helped bring light to hers as well.
.
.
This woman reminded me that my purpose is large and I wouldn’t feel this passionate about building a safe place to encourage woman to pursue their true lives unless God wanted me to.
.
.
As the end of the year draws closer, I pray that I can continue walking on the path that God has destined for me. I pray that I can continue inspiring those around me and encouraging others in his light. I pray that our relationship strengthens after all the time that it dwindled.
.
.
In him, I have found my home and my purpose and I want to help you do the same.
.
.
SEND ME A DM: if something has been on your heart lately, if you’ve been struggling, or if you want to praise Jesus. I will talk you through it, pray over you, and praise him with you 💕
Stealing as many last minute kitty snuggles as I can while I pack for my first solo trip across the county!
.
.
A few weeks ago, I did something spontaneous and booked a trip to Portland & Seattle and guess what?! My flight leaves at 6am 🙃
.
.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m super excited, but I’m also super nervous! This will be my first trip to the West Coast and my first true solo travel experience.
.

As a young professional throwing herself into the podcasting industry, this quote really hits home for me! I’m beyond nervous, but so many amazing women have encouraged me along the way and I know I just have to take that leap of faith!
.

COMMENT: One thing that you want to start but need a little extra encouragement to overcome your fears!
As I’m wandering the streets of Nashville, I can’t help but reflect on the last year of my life.
.
.
If you had told me that I’d be ok, I would have doubted you; in fact, I did.
.
.
I was struggling with anxiety and depression, ready to give up.
.
.
With 22 chronic conditions, I truly didn’t believe I could leave my husband and still survive.
.
.
Nevertheless, I knew I deserved better and I persisted. The journey wasn’t easy, but I found my way and now I’m happier and healthier than ever before 😊
.
.
I want you to know that no matter what you’re going through, you got this! And if you need a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on, don’t hesitate to reach out to me!
This one goes out to all of the Perfectly Ambitious Women’s trying to pursue their passions while working full time!

Hey everyone! 
Today’s daily inspiration is, “beauty is found within.”
.
.
.
I know this probably isn't news for any of you, but it doesn't mean that we don't all need a reminder every once in a while. In fact, I recently needed one myself!
.
.
.
As you guys know, I struggle with chronic illness and that greatly affects my weight. So needless to say, I definitely have my fair share of insecurities.
.
.
.
Nevertheless, it's important to remember that beauty is found within and that no matter what anyone else says or thinks about us, each one of us is uniquely beautiful!
.
.
.
So whatever insecurity you're struggling with, throw it out the window! Now is the time to be unapologetically you, whatever that may entail 💖
.
.
.
Quick exercise: what's one thing you think is beautiful about yourself? Tell me in the comments below!
.
.
.
I hope you all have a great day today!
