HAPPY FRIDAY🎉today I am in a fabulous mood! the sun is out, the weather is warm, and I crushed my workout today! what’s not to be happy about👌🏻looking forward to what the weekend has to offer. Have a beautiful day my beautiful pals❤️

My favorite feeling in the world is when you’re so beyond happy that it’s impossible to not look around and smile and be grateful for everything that is surrounding you. Please strive for that feeling, because it’s honestly the best.

I believe everything happens for a reason. Whether it is decided by the Mother, or the Cauldron, or some sort of tapestry of Fate, I don’t know. I don’t really care. But I am grateful for it, whatever it is. Grateful that it brought you all into my life. If it hadn’t … I might have become as awful as that prick we’re going to face today. If I had not met an Illyrian warrior-in-training,” he said to Cassian, “I would not have known the true depths of strength, of resilience, of honor and loyalty.” Cassian’s eyes gleamed bright. Rhys said to Azriel, “If I had not met a shadowsinger, I would not have known that it is the family you make, not the one you are born into, that matters. I would not have known what it is to truly hope, even when the world tells you to despair.” Azriel bowed his head in thanks. Mor was already crying when Rhys spoke to her. “If I had not met my cousin, I would never have learned that light can be found in even the darkest of hells. That kindness can thrive even amongst cruelty.” She wiped away her tears as she nodded. I waited for Amren to offer a retort. But she was only waiting. Rhys bowed his head to her. “If I had not met a tiny monster who hoards jewels more fiercely than a firedrake …” A quiet laugh from all of us at that. Rhys smiled softly. “My own power would have consumed me long ago.” Rhys squeezed my hand as he looked to me at last. “And if I had not met my mate …” His words failed him as silver lined his eyes. He said down the bond, I would have waited five hundred more years for you. A thousand years. And if this was all the time we were allowed to have … The wait was worth it. He wiped away the tears sliding down my face. “I believe that everything happened, exactly the way it had to … so I could find you.” He kissed another tear away. And then he said to my sisters, “We have not known each other for long. But I have to believe that you were brought here, into our family, for a reason, too. And maybe today we’ll find out why.

Feeling the burn from yesterday’s workout🔥P.s I know you probably can’t see, but I have cellulite on my butt and upper thighs. I know a lot of people are self conscious about them and I use to be too, but it’s something that’s apart of me and I will most likely always have cellulite! No one has flawless skin and all body’s are different, it’s important not to compare yourself to others and embrace the skin your in because you are beautiful ❤️ follow me on Instagram @nicole.frenchie ❤️

WOW

I have completely mixed feelings on this, it’s unreal that a man can’t tell people his sexuality no matter what era he was brought up in. You are who you are and you should be who you want to be to make you happy, makes me sad that he had to live his whole life a lie.

But then again; BRAVO GRANDMA! What a beautiful women, to hide her best-friends secret by having children and raising a family to hide his secret sexuality! Absolutely beyond amazing how some people can be so incredible.

Novak: “I will always remember April 2012 as the month when I lost my beloved grandfather Vlada, who meant a lot to me. He was a really important part of my life and I can still feel his presence every day, no matter where I am. Those were some really tough days for me… but then, this amazing new family was born! All of you acted as one, sending me your kind and positive messages, as if you knew exactly how I felt and gave me comfort when I needed it the most. In that moment I lost part of my family, but I also gained a whole new one… That’s when we became Nole Family and when our #NoleFam saw light of day.

Throughout the years I fought hard, always believing in myself, and you were always there to have my back, no matter what. It seems that we have never been just a fan group… From day one #NoleFam was connected by a special team energy, as #TeamDjokovic, which was and remains my valuable source of energy on- and off-court. You were always beside me, standing strong and always ready to give advice, comfort and praise in every given situation.

You have never allowed that any important date passes by unnoticed, not a single holiday, nor achievement… You were there every step of the way, no matter how hard it was. I really don’t know whether all fan groups function that way, but I know for sure that this feels a lot like being part of one big family.

I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you! I am blessed to have you by my side and happy as ever for having such an amazing people and extraordinary friends around me.

You know me so well and remember even the things I tend to forget about myself… and then you remind me and make me laugh, just like that. And I know also so many things about you… I know about your challenges, your small and big fights, your exams, your employment, your disappointments… I know where you are from and how much you support not only me, but also each other. And I want that the whole world get to know you, my dear #NoleFam! I want to introduce you to everybody, one by one, and show who and how amazing you are… so others can gain confidence to step up together and support one another in sport and life.

Because of all this, today we are starting with the #MeetNoleFam project.”

Finally starting to see them muscles come💪🏻 something I really struggle with is my upper body, it has always been the weakest part of me and is something I have been really self-conscious of my whole life, especially my arms. But slow progress is better than no progress! And loving your body for how it looks is the most important thing, not matter what shape or size you are✌🏼 P.s my brief description of why I went vegan is up on @vegansofaus page! Be sure to check it out 🔥
