Can you BE you? ๐Ÿ’• In observation of when Iโ€™m feeling my best: it's when I'm simply me. It's a delicious combination of exhilaration and peace to live from within -authentic & genuine- like the feeling when you are โ€œhomeโ€. On the flip side, I spiral out of control when I compare myself to others and concern myself with what you might think.
Want to try real quick?! This thought process alone will bring you ease: simply check in with -genuine YOU- and then LIVE it. โœ… Not trying to please or be for anyone else. There is beautiful energy and ease there.
Ironically, you will find that as you care less about what others think of you...you will want to take CARE so much more for everyone around you. You create more space to love because there is no wasted energy on comparison. Do you feel relief? Itโ€™s so freeing to simply be yourself. What do you think? Can you be you? Letโ€™s all go โ€œhomeโ€. Shall we? Comparison is the thief of joy and quite frankly many other things. Be your radiant self. ๐Ÿ’“ Iโ€™m sending love and gratitude from my home to yours. ๐Ÿ˜˜ Xo

๐ŸŽถ A dab of...forgiveness, patience, perseverance, compassion. @doterra #NEROLI derived from the beautiful flowers of the bitter orange tree provide relaxation, uplifts your mood, reduces feelings of anxiousness, and promotes overall well-being. Applied topically, Neroli can be used to soothe skin and reduce blemishes. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ
On top of all the health and emotional benefits...it smells divine. Hence the reason Iโ€™m constantly dabbin this beauty on my skin ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰ if you need some neroli in your life comment below or dm me. Happy Sunday loves ๐Ÿ’“

Prague!! What have you done to my heart?! Iโ€™m at the airport in grateful reflection of this beautiful place and thinking how incredible our universe is. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ Something rad happened while I was here (a lot of rad somethingโ€™s but here is one ๐Ÿ˜‰)A couple months ago a dear friend gave me a moldavite ring. I instantly felt the power behind the intense rock but had little knowledge about it. Moldavite is a very powerful transformative Stone. Itโ€™s often said not to wear it if you arenโ€™t open to changing because it creates fast shifts. I have worn it almost every day since he gifted it to me but NEVER ever in a million years would I have imagined walking into a little village here and discovering moldavite landed here in ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฟ #czechrepublic from outer space ~12 million years ago. How rad is that divine synchronicity?๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ โ€œFocus on the powerful, euphoric, Magical, synchronistic, beautiful parts of life, and the universe will keep giving them to youโ€ ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’“ #sograteful to you @jenihouston78 and @doterra for giving me abundant opportunities and @dr.mattlyon for the moldavite rocket ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿค—

This trip is amazing. Life changing...but holy ๐Ÿ’ฉ tiring. Iโ€™m running on very little ๐Ÿ’ค. So Iโ€™m slathering in this baby ๐ŸŒฑ. Motivate is a combo of mint and citrus that give me a mental and energetic boost. What you smell communicates with your brain, and consequently your emotions, reallll quick (as you have experienced a bajillion times in life ๐Ÿ‘ƒ๐Ÿฝ) so Iโ€™m super grateful for this powerful tool. Plant based energy. No negative side effects. ๐Ÿ’ฅ thank you @doterra
If you need some motivation in your life simply comment or dm ๐Ÿ’“ love and gratitude, lauren

Today and everyday offer a vibration that matches your desire. YOU are ๐Ÿ’ฏ capable of creating your reality with the high vibes of Love and Gratitude. Always.๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝโค๏ธ ๐Ÿ”ฎ

I live everyday with a strong passion to be the "best me" and at the same time accept my many imperfections. It's a strange balancing act to constantly say "you are perfect" and then want to change things (physically and mentally) about myself. I donโ€™t have it all figured out...not even close ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ. But in the OCD tendencies of my brain lies ambition, hope and maybe a little madness to continue wanting more. It feels right to strive. Without a doubt we are made to thrive.... Can we master the art of bettering ourselves but LOVE the skin we are in right now? What a beautiful concept?! โค๏ธ
I love you and all your perfect. I love you and all your imperfections. And while I'm loving on you it would be a disservice to not love me too. Cheers to embracing the now. To loving exactly who, where, and what you are in this exact moment (even all the things we may change because change is inevitable as we strive...it's called growth ๐Ÿ˜‰). Happy Thursday loves ๐Ÿ˜˜ Lauren

I miss my sister @moonbabymama (she has been in Hawaii for like a month) and I miss her amazing vegan cooking concoctions. I love this pic because her smile...and also Iโ€™m about to spill everything out of my bowl ๐Ÿ˜‚ but heyyyyy ๐Ÿคณskills ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ. Bowl...back to the post...Lately, Iโ€™m obsessed with #veganbowls and find itโ€™s the perfect meal. Base: non gluten grain , loaded with tons of organic veggies, spices and a vegan protein. Done โœ… so simple, so yummy. Do you have a favorite #bowl combo? Inspire me ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜˜

When you look around an entire room and feel genuinely honored that we are all one...sigh ๐ŸŒฌsuch an amazing feeling ๐Ÿค—. I spent the weekend immersed in ๐Ÿš€ yoga with the gorgeous @jaimisyoga and insanely strong @patmccleaf. I had the best time learning (humbled ๐Ÿ˜) and reflecting and I got to say Iโ€™m excited. Stoked. Ecstatic...I can keep going but you get my point. Charlotte Yoga community, we are SO lucky. A community that recognizes we rise by lifting others up. A community that embraces creativity in this ancient practice. Itโ€™s so rad to witness that maybe you have a fav teacher or fav studio but the mentality that we are all one. So good. Gives me chicken skin just thinking about it๐Ÿ’ฅ!!! Thank you #Charlotte for being a encouraging and beautiful reflection. Letโ€™s keep it going. We rise by uplifting each other ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ #honored xo, Lauren
