Word on the street is that there's grace for new teachers who constantly feel like they aren't good enough to handle the responsibility of educating 150 young people.
And who have to pep talk themselves through the weirdness of being back at their high school.

And who also jam the copy machine once a day.
Wow that's good news.

I miss my sisters a lot.
There are times when I come home from college where my littlest sister greets me with a tight hug and a few tears.
We miss each other.
And I wish I could do more for them than post gushy Instagram posts about them.
I wish I could be there with a very large flaming sword to keep all the crazy hormonal teenage boys away from Sally, who is super gorgeous and popular(??). (still trying to figure out how that happened - she was always the nerd)
I wish I was there to do workouts and play games with Ellie (She's a competitive cheerleader at one of the most intense cheer gyms I've ever seen in my life.)
.
But the bottom line is
I feel like I should be there for them and I'm not.
I feel like I should be closer to them but I'm not.
I feel like I should be a better big sister to them but I'm not.

My Rhinoplasty Q&A is live on my blog now➡️www.aoiferrr.com➡️#Lifestyle section💗✨

Cosmetic Surgery; the most taboo subject that nobody wants to talk about yet everyone wants to know about. Having underwent cosmetic surgery on my nose in November'16, the option was there for me to either share my story or keep my decision private. Halfway through my recovery and after lots of thinking I decided I was going to tell the people on my Instagram page not only that I underwent cosmetic surgery, but also why I did it. The fact that its such a taboo subject and one that's often frowned upon frustrated me and I wanted to do my part in breaking the stigma. I have a previous blog post touching on why I decided to have Rhinoplasty done and how I feel now that it's done. I never thought that at 21 I'd have undergone surgery for cosmetic reasons but I'm so glad I did. -

New Years resolution is to stop being an asshole but I doubt that'll happen lol #honestyhour #hilulu

Recently I've been thinking a lot about mother and daughter relationships. Since getting back from California I have been completely exhausted. Clove is learning a new word everyday, and I've poured most of my effort into her, and having a happy environment. My trip was a mix of mostly positive emotions. Nevertheless, not every vacation can be perfect, and it brought up fears that one day I might have a strained, or even nonexistent, relationship with my daughter. Do any mom's of daughters experience this fear too?
Anyways, I hope everyone can cherish the friends and family they have in their lives. Nothing is more important than appreciating the good in your life ✨

I was challenged to participate in #HonestyHour. It's a project taking place on Tuesdays with the aim of promoting deeper conversations and more meaningful connection:

Maybe you are wondering, what could a classic picture of someone staring aimlessly out over the horizon have to do with meaningful connection? In case you don't know, I'm standing in front of Crater Lake in this picture. While you can probably tell it's not the largest lake out there, you might not know that Crater Lake is actually the deepest lake in the United States. My point is that if you didn't already know that, you'd never even realize how deep it is just by examining it from the surface.
If I'm being completely honest, I can say that most of my life, at least until more recently, was spent right around surface level. Whether it came down to the types of conversations I felt comfortable having or even how I expressed myself.
What I wish I had known earlier was what goes on when you get beneath the surface level. It's here that you discover the real depth of people and the world in general. Where you often have some of the best and most memorable moments. Where you make true human connection. It's at these moments that we are the most raw and vulnerable, and the most alive and present as a result.

I used to just believe that it was because of my introversion and reserved nature that I lacked those connections. However, my mindset has changed more recently. I think anyone has the ability to get deep and be vulnerable, no matter your personality type. All it takes is a little bit of courage on your end. A few seconds of courage to just take action or say what you want to say.

I've been challenging myself to spend more time under the surface. It's still uncomfortable for me basically 90% of the time. But every now and then when I find that courage and succeed I get this sense of life rushing into my soul. And as is true with most things that are uncomfortable, the more you put yourself in those situations the more comfortable they eventually become...

| #honestyhour |Yesterday I spent the day inside, online, working on ideas that excited me. But at the end of the day I felt unfulfilled because I had not ventured out enough or connected with many people face to face. While I am so happy to be back at Elon, with my amazing community here, I am struggling with the limits this place sets on me. •
I am hoping to continue to push myself to break outside the boundaries and regain the independence I relished in Copenhagen. •

#HonestyHour: Okay guys, gotta come clean on why I haven't posted for a while. Now you might all roll your eyes or whatever you do, but the whole taking pictures of myself thing is hard for me personally! Sometimes I just can't look at any picture without pointing out every single flaw. But here's the deal: that's what this whole page is about. Embracing and empowering myself and others. So I'm doing it for you all! I want to have fun and enjoy my life and be proud of who I am, so, here you go. No more going a whole week without posting unless I really have a legit excuse. That's my promise to you all to thank you for all the amazing support and belief you have given me. ❤️

Person: You're pretty cool... Me: Oh my god prepare to be very disappointed. ------------ -------------Having a high-functioning condition is hard. Appearing relatively normal when you're a complete mess inside is useful and good when it's important to you that people don't feel awkward or burdened by you. But it's hard when you (inevitably) let them down because, well, how can they understand when you can't communicate how unwell you really are? Sure, I'm still capable of functioning in an acceptable way. And it's second nature to downplay or laugh off the ways I am constantly failing myself or others, but it is painful and lonely to feel wrong all of the time. So it's hard but I'm working on it.

•Jealousy•
In my attempt to become more self aware I have uncovered a painful truth: I am a jealous woman. I'm not jealous in the sense that I want the people I love to have less, but I am jealous in the sense that I want more, mainly from myself. I have a long standing record of making very impulsive decisions. Decisions that were fed by my inability to find peace in MY path when I see peace and prosperity in another's. When I am living a life of passion and living my truth, the green monster stays at bay, but when I feel suffocated by the mundane, seemingly pointless grind, I lose myself and try to form to fit someone else's mold. The first step to finding my purpose is to identify my self inflicted barriers. My prayer is to continue to seek what gifts my maker invested in only me. I love the thought that God created the deepest oceans, tallest mountains, and every star in the sky, looked at all of his creation unsatisfied and thought it needed ONE of you. How can I ever be jealous of another's gifts if I understand what God has set aside for me and ONLY me? I don't think I can. Here's to discovering and diving head first into a life that uses every last ounce of of juice God has poured into me. I hope you know, you are worth the same effort.

"WE ARE ALL PREJUDICE"
#newblogpost #linkinbio
If we cannot admit our prejudice inclinations, will we ever be able to progress as a society? I challenge all of us to look within and around us. I challenge all of us to become aware of our own prejudices. I challenge all of us to fight the stereotypes that society has taught us. Do not complain about the need for change; BE the change. | #HonestyHour | ❤💙✌🏻✌🏿

Tonight’s run hurt worse than normal, but
not worse than those lead legs like crooked zeppelins.
The weight of the day spilling out your soles,
the left toe hole is bigger, so it pours out faster and
keeps you leaning like astigmatism, out of focus
and trying to remain in balance with the rhythm.

Then you’re smelling melon and that first cut of
spring grass, but it’s too early. Punxsutawney Phil’s
lying worse than that crush who says they’ll call you,
but you know what’s up. You’ve got a worse connection than
when mom used to pick up the phone on those all-night AIM
conversations. Hung up.

Wait, where’s my head at? Off in the atmosphere with that Waxing Crescent, all blue and flaky from eons and eras of dust
settling on heavy shoulders as he keeps watch on our slumber.
I know why he’s blue; he knows he's the only one holding it all together. That weighs worse than the anxiety welling up in your gut, pools of fear, calm, clear, inviting. Deadly.
Kick. Step. Breathe. Carry on.

Remember when I said I was going to be #HappyFit ? Well, I meant it. 👊🏾 I believe in honesty, so do I have a six pack (or any pack for that matter)? Nope! 😅 Have I worked my ass off these last couple weeks to tone up and slim down? YES and I'm damn proud of my progress! 😝

Progress is not going to be immediate and it takes #patience and #determination to reach your goals. But I'm doing it! And I couldn't be happier 🤗 #selfacceptance is somethin' ain't it? #HappyTuesday

#HonestyHour :
Life is hard. Life is really hard. In November, the most important person in my life was admitted into the hospital, and I spent every second at school preparing to do nothing all weekend, so I could be with my family. I turned down obligations, I ate my feelings because let's be real food is awesome and I'm awesome and we are best friends. I went to the gym once or twice a week and forced myself to do something because I felt guilty for my health choices and all the stress weight that I was gaining. I tried and tried, and I honestly just gave up for a while. Being able to spend time with my Opa was more important than prepping my food or getting to the gym. Being able to spend those last few days together was more important than dealing with homework or keeping up with my body or keeping up with friends or even just life in general. I don't regret a single bit of it. What I do know: my Opa is so proud of me in Heaven, and he is probably sitting there with Oma discussing all the things I can keep doing in order to further myself. I have to do it, I have to keep going, I have to restart each week. I have to come to terms with the fact that I'm not perfect, but I have the opportunity to take baby steps. I hope that you understand that to get to what you want, it's not pretty and it's not easy. It's hard, and you will restart 100 times before you really get it. Keep going, babe. You'll get there. I'm right there with you.
