Therapy Thursday
Take care of yourself.
Not just your body, the external parts people can see, but the real you.
Whatโ€™s going on inside?
What do you eat?
Do you drink enough water?
Are you filling your body with toxins?
And, what about your beautiful mind?
Howโ€™s she doing?
Does she get fed too?
Books and poetry, and do you speak kindly to her?
Are you gentle with yourself?
Do you sleep enough?
We are all in need of tenderness.
We all want to be loved.
To be treated kindly.
But, how can we expect others to treat us gently, if we do not treat ourselves gently?
Furthermore, how can we give out of our hollowness?
Give to yourself.
It is not selfish, it is necessary.
Speak praise to your body and mind, compliment your talents and love on the fragmented brokenness.
Then, and only then, can we give back, be open, care, and tread gently. .

poolside with bae ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿถ Jabba has completely changed my life, and me as a person. Iโ€™ve been her mommy for almost two years now, & I honestly donโ€™t know how I did life without her!
She is such a good girl, so mellow, very quiet, and extremely opinionated ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ˜#likemotherlikedaughter #justthelastone ๐Ÿคฃ
Iโ€™m so thankful for @socialteesnyc for rescuing her from euthanasia, saving her so she can enjoy at least ten more years of life!

before feet hit the floor in the morning, choose not to think: โ€œugh gawd i donโ€™t want to get up.โ€ โ€œi hate my job.โ€
โ€œim so tiredโ€
instead, turn these into positives:
โ€œwow. im so thankful to have a job!โ€
โ€œthis too shall pass, for now i am grateful for a roof overhead, a bed to rest in, & a job to (help) pay the billsโ€”thank you!โ€ find the good.
anything is possible with a positive attitude & willingness to push through.
life is hard.
for weeks we can feel we arenโ€™t going to pull through.
we might feel alone, or utterly defeated.
itโ€™s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
the *only* habit iโ€™ve found to carry me through the battles & the blind sided jabs, is to be emphatically, obsessively, & intentionally grateful.
have you used gratitude statements to get you through difficult phases or seasons?

i once auditioned for a musical in the mid 90โ€™s & the 3 other girls in my group got nervous, refusing to perform the scene with me.
so, without hesitation, i marched up on the stage, and did all four characters. using different dialects and tones for each, of course.
i can still see the director laughing, with tears rolling down his cheeks.
mightโ€™ve been silly, but i got the call back. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜œ who knows if it was my talent or my audacity that helped me get in that show and future shows, but the point: never be afraid to take risks and be your authentic self. ๐Ÿ˜˜

thanks @tracigilesphotography for this fun, sunny shoot in Central Park ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™ #liveboldly

Reason is powerless in the expression of love.
- Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi

โ€œI can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones, and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life.โ€ โ€”Sylvia Plath
and, so, given I am only I in this lifetime, I will try to be my best, to give my all.
to also learn to love myself as tenderly as I love the animals, and my people.
I love deeply, this is both a blessing and a curse.
Please excuse me while I take a break from social media to tend to my truer needs.
Xx

happy inside

Here is what I know, neither love nor potential nor creativity can be extinguished.
They are limitless.
Love, when genuine and authentic, has infinite power.
Potential does not have a finish line.
Creativity, when tended with love and viewed through endless potential, will bloom over and over again.
Hold your focus.
Live in a positive mindset.
Create and watch possibilities unfurl time and again. โ€œ...the more you use, the more you have.โ€ -Maya Angelou
We have but one life, Iโ€™d much rather exhaust all angles of my brain, than live unfulfilled.
I will push my creativity instead of living a robotic life, rather than going through the motions, losing myself in someone elseโ€™s dream.

Tulum has been magnificent in so many ways, & has taught me several lessons gently as well.
I love you, #tulum

All living things have the ability to flourish when they are tended with gentle hands.
โ€”Erin Forbes

See, the thing is, we get shit from the world, these well-meaning people who love us but donโ€™t know how to show it, we get it at work...
Then, we turn around and regurgitate all that negativity & refeed it to ourselves.
But, if we can filter what those outside voices say & recognize those things are merely ONE persons opinion.
That, perhaps, these people were having a bad day, going through a tough season, insecure, jealous...whatever the reason, it was their problem, not ours.
After discovering their comments, & unsolicited input, are not concrete facts, we could graciously look at ourselves & say: while I will forever have room for improvement, I will nurture myself. I will be kind. I will tend to myself with gentleness & patience.
After all is said & done, we can flourish despite the words we once held to as truths.
Live gently.
Just because someone hurt you, doesnโ€™t mean you have to hurt others or yourself.
We are all hurt at some point.
And, we all hurt someone at some point.
So, when we can love ourselves, & have given ourselves time to heal & grow, we then can extend that same kindness & room (to expand) to all life.
Hold yourself gently, hold others in this same way & watch as you both {all} flourish. ๐ŸŒธ ๐ŸŒบ
