MOST RECENT

I got up before noon, I made breakfast and coffee, I made the bed, and I just finished mowing the lawn and mopping the house. To many people this isn’t much. For me it’s five things I got accomplished today even though I didn’t wake up feeling so great. I’m going to continue pushing today and work for a little and finish my day by going to CrossFit. Today is a day of accomplishments, no matter how small. I’m trying to be proud of the little things. Take pride in myself and take care of the things that matter to me. I will not be beaten anymore. I am stronger than this and it’s about time I realize this and take responsibility for my actions. I’m here because of me and I’ll get out because of me. Out of the ashes the Phoenix is reborn to reach new heights. #iamstrongerthanmyexcuses #iamstrongerthanmydemons #iamstrong #iamstrength #believeinyourself #loveyourselfmore #respectyourself #depressionisnotajoke #findthelightwithin #fightforwhatyouwant #pursuitofhappiness #realtalk #berealwithyourself

As much as I am connected to my mystical fairy Unicorn nature ... I am also connected to a primal rage that boils in my blood. More and more I am connecting to the parts of me that say NO MORE to the violations, abuse and manipulations that have happened to my own body and voice and across our planet. And I am asking WTF is my role in this bigger picture of healing and transformation? In order to participate in restoration we MUST be willing to face the parts of ourselves that subtly and sometimes grossly still lean towards destruction ... within ourselves, within our relationships, and projected out into the world. Shadow-work is no joke. It is not all light and fluffy and unicorns ... even if there are times we would prefer it that way. Shadow-work is deep sh*t!! Honestly this first phase of 2018 has kicked my butt when it comes to shadow work ... Life has been turning some ancient stories of rage and denial inside out. Life has been showing me ways that I subconsciously manipulate by holding back my truth. Life has been showing me areas where I am slacking, including ways that I have bought into a white-privelege story of lack ("mememe" and "not enough to share"). These are not new territory for me... each time these shadows come out to play I notice the parts of me that want to give in throw up my hands and say I guess I am never going to learn this one ... (perhaps you can relate?) The thing is I AM COMMITTED TO GROWTH FOR THE LONG HUAL. I AM COMMITTED TO DIGGING DEEPER TO UNCOVER THE GEMS IN THE SHADOWS AND BRING THESE TO THE LIGHT. The latest lesson from my dark corner? When we meet our shadows like a new acquaintance ... rather than an old enemy ... NEW insights and DEEPER layers of healing emerge...

“I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.” ✌🏻🔥💪🏻

It’s been a LONG week y’all. A long week of taking hit after hit in every area of my life. To put it simply, this week has been one BIG mental struggle, and my sensitive heart just needs a minute to vent.
.
.
FACT: I have a huge heart - I care A LOT about other people’s feelings and I love making people happy. Its my gift but it’s also my flaw. Because that same mushy gushy heart that led me to devote my career to helping others as a nurse, is the same heart that has led me to fall victim to the cruelty of others, sensitive to peer pressure, not believe in myself, compare myself to others, and to not put my wants and needs first. .
.
I know what it feels like to be judged, criticized, and to be held to a ridiculously high standard. I’ve battled deep depression, and still do, I’ve made massively horrible mistakes out of fear of facing my real feelings, and I have shamed myself into thinking that others wants and needs are more important than my own.
.
.
Bottom line - I am not perfect and I am not here to judge. That is NOT me anymore. What I’ve learned this year is that I not only hate that I judged others for so long, but I judged myself just as harshly - I let myself BELIEVE that I wasn’t smart enough, pretty enough or capable of more. I know that it’s natural for us to fear what we know nothing about - trust me, I did too - but I also know that if I hadn’t put myself out here, If that random girl had never messaged me, and if I hadn’t taken this chance on myself because of my initial judgment of this community, and what I THOUGHT it was and stood for - then I wouldn’t be in the place that I am today.
.
.
Don’t get me wrong, I am still sensitive AF - but I also am learning to thicken up those muscles around that mushy, gushy heart of mine because I know that this heart IS meant to help others, but it also has learned how to better help myself as well. It sees in others the potential that for so long didn’t see in myself and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let fear and judgement stand in my way. This life is too damn short and ain’t NOBODY got time for that. ✌🏻💗

Bom dia meus amores.🌷

Ontem recebi uma notícia que me deixou um pouco preocupada, chateada e até triste na verdade... Nem todos os dias podem ser bons!😕
.
O meu dia "menos bom" acabou por se tornar numa noite super divertida. É nestas alturas que temos de dar valor às pessoas na nossa vida que nos fazem melhores e que nos fazem sentir bem.. obrigada. ❤️
.
Ontem, depois de 2 horas no ginásio a tentar livrar me das más energias todas decidi passar pelo continente e comprar este livro como prenda de Páscoa de mim para mim! 😇
.
A @inesnunespimentel é uma mulher super inspiradora e só do que li esta manhã posso afirmar que vou adorar este livro! Obrigada Inês por me ajudares a reencontrar a luz dentro de mim depois de um dia meio "enevoado cá dentro"😂🙏🏻!

ife is a journey that takes many shapes. We learn to practice tolerance, acceptance, forgiveness and know that you are where you are meant to be at any moment in time. We can't always know what another's journey looks like, their struggles, their pain... all we can do is practice understanding within ourselves, allow our light to shine and be grateful for our blessings.

Seek out your own light and let it shine. DON’T rely on norms and external validation to guide you— in the end it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about you or how you’ve lived your life, only what you think when you look back. If this was your final day, would you have regrets? Then change your path (and know that it’s totally okay if you stumble awkwardly as you go.. I know I do)! Who do YOU want to be? #betruetoyou #beyourself #findyourwings #selfacceptance #beuniquelyyou #unapologeticallyme #motivationalquotes #findthelightwithin #psychologist #igniteyourfire #justdoit #livefreelylovedeeply

Consciousness comes from heart, the vital organ, to which we can't control the function of the heart, we CAN listen to our hearts' intuition and what we can control is our love, when we are deeply connected to ourselves and love ourselves wholeheartedly we can then choose to make every decision with l💗ve... afterall love is free, and it raises your own positive vibes! So give, spread, share and radiate love everyday!! 🙏💛☇ #radiatelove #radiatepositivity #lovethyself #selflove #selfcare #beyou #doyou #connect #raisevibrations #goodvibesonly #nothingbutlove #spiritualgangster #yogini #liveyoga #inhaleexhale #breathe #behereandnow #givelove #itsfree #uncondititionallove #valentinesday #feb14 #present #brewingupbliss #findthelightwithin #shivaratri #newmoon

I’m forever torn between loving and hating #valentinesday — because money making, because society, because love should be shown and celebrated all day every day BUT it also celebrates my favourite emotion sooo... 🤷🏻‍♀️

....seeing as it can’t be escaped in any shape or form today, I’m choosing to celebrate #selflove 💕 because falling in love with myself only a couple of years ago is the best thing that has ever happened to me 🌸🌷

Seeing this photo, and reading this message reminds me of the comical figure in the parable who having lost his keys in his living room, goes out into the street to look because there's more light there. #healingeveryday #injuryrecovery #yogateacherdownbutnotout #bty60 #jennprughyoga #joyofyoga #300hourteachertraining #findthelightwithin
