Hey friends!
@iandioutfitters launched an awesome campaign today to spark conversation around mental health and break the stigmas associated with mental illness.
As you may or may not know, I've struggled my whole life with social anxiety, which morphed into body dysmorphia, a disorder where you see a distorted version of yourself -- this caused a 4-year episode of binge eating, food restriction and bouts of depression...damn those were some dark days, but it's because of that that I'm here now. I am a full supporter of this campaign and believe that #IAMNOTMY is a great way to stand up for who you truly are inside.
If you too have a story to share, please repost this photo, tag @iandioutfitters and let us know about you and your journey as #mentalhealthwarrior!! #iamnotmyweight #iamnotmyanxiety #iamnotmyemotions

Be mindful of emotional "I am" statements. ("I am angry") "I am" implies that we are that emotion, in opposition to "I feel" statements which brings about recognition of a momentary state of feeling, which can be explored and healed if necessary. #emotions #mindfulness #iamnotmyemotions #innergrowth

A different kind of bodywork, when I have been hobbling for days: again laying facedown and crying, after screaming, I question, Are we finished soon? I had been in this position for ninety minutes and any way I position my neck seems to be negating the work we've done in that timeframe. The therapist replies, Why, are you bored? She's actually asking if that's the reason for my question. I had just explained to her that I don't currently like being touched, that it was difficult for anyone to get close to me. Some of us may be gifted in superhuman ways--more and more I am believing that makes us not less human but less able to be human. I never want to discount or misread the experience of Another. Healing is not (often) sparkly pillows/petals/, harp music, instantaneously clear and lifted skin and full bodied orgasms. This work is challenging enough without disregard of the simple. #iamnotmyemotions #iamnotmytraumas #highlysensitiveperson #deephealing #bodywork #ouch #compassion #truth #medicine #itsokaytosayno #justwalkaway

#108daysofmeditation Day 36: Detatchment. Identity. I am not my emotions. ││ A friend who is struggling through a sugar purge (hang in there!) has inspired me and my mind is quite blown. This may not move some of you seasoned meditators, but for me, this is a breakthrough ││ Last night, as I reflected on my decidedly uncool angry battle of wills with my preteen, the thought of my friend giving up sugar kept creeping back in....she's giving up sugar, some people give up something for lent.... and so on. ││ And then it hit me. What if I just gave up anger like I gave up lactose and gluten and cigarettes?? My body rejected these other things. They made me feel like shit... why not do the same thing with this anger that is doing as much damage if not more?? ││ The deeper work is, of course, getting dirty with the messiness of why the anger is there, and that won't be pretty. But just like with cigarettes, cold turkey, and then dealing with the shit that comes up, may be my most effective course ││ Detachment. I am not my emotions. I do not, in my heart, identify with this anger any more. Time to break the pattern. Time to let go of past hurts, and the identification with them ││ I can give up anger like I can give up sugar ││ This is a watershed moment for me. Years of practice in the making. #practiceandalliscoming #meditate #breakthepattern #recondition #recalibrate #identity #iamnotmyemotions #detachment #movingforward #letthatshitgo #letyouryogachangeyou #mindblown

Even Jude agrees that Pastor @stevenfurtick's message this week was pure 🔥. "Christ is in me and I am enough"

Last year at about this time I was reading Eric Greiten's Resilience. It was my first real introduction to Stoicism. Whenever I suggest that book, I get push back from women saying "Stoicism isn't my jam." I think, and I could be wrong, that this is largely because people think stoicism is the absence of emotion. Except that it's not.

Here's how/why Stoicism has changed my life: I'm what I call a thinker-feeler. I think all the time and I feel all the feels. It would not be incorrect to say I can tend to be ruled by my emotions. Or I used to. Stoicism, to me, is the use of logic, not in an attempt to deny my emotions, but to deny them the power to dictate my life to me. It's quite possibly the simplest anti-anxiety tool on the planet. It's precisely why asking yourself if a thought is true works. Just as meditation calms the monkey mind, logic takes your emotions and peels back the layers to the root cause, shining a light on what is true and what is not. It's, as the above quote says, the awareness behind the emotions.

I cannot promise that this life will always be beautiful, I cannot protect you from the pain you will inevitably face, I cannot ward off the negative people you will come into contact with over the years...but, I can promise you that this planet is beautiful, I can promise you that you are so deserving of happiness and love, and we can say "I will go on" • 🌊🙏🏼 #stefcleephotography #rockglenconservationarea #amateurphotography #landscapephotography #dontgochasingwaterfalls #waterfall #naturephotography #positivethinking #livelikewater #wewillgoon #iwillgoon #iamnotmyillness #iamnotmyemotions #artisticoutlet #photography #poitivevibes #positivetribe

Melancholia swings deep within my heart today my mind keeps babbling about faults I dont have..pointing the finger at me "This is all your undoing and you could have just tried to supress that love then she was still alive (tho there is always more to that party) and if and if and if.." NO! STOP! not thats not true its not my fault and some things are not to be prevented why let my mind talk me into something I didnt do. Why listen when the pity and compassion for someone that will never have it for me I believe almost kills my heart with sorrow. Im saying NO.. Im saying Im not the victim of my mind nor my heart. Im NOT! And you aint either. If that ups and downs wont kill me soon then I dont know!! Its so easy to get distracted by that constant noise! Let go of'em thoughts and emotions about things you cannot change! All is just fine, all is alright. I have to find peace today for lets freaking admit it again I AM who I am and therefore an unapologetic bitch 😋 Love myself with all that I am! #Iamnotmymind #Iamnotmyemotions #realtalk #authenticity #humbleness #tansparency #vulnerability #strongwomen 10:10 #unapologetical #IamwhoIam #sorrynotsorry #gotaproblemkeepit #wontputonshoesthatdontfit

In a weird (and comprehensibly not super healthy...it is temporary, i am already okay) space of not sincerely smiling unless I'm talking to someone I already know, looking at Jesus memes or reading Kabir #itsokay #iamnotmyemotions #kabir #poetry #divinepoetry #love #divinelove #takingmyselftooseriously #lostinmysymptoms #meditation

"You must be prepared to be suspended in the air with nothing to support you except your faith. You will have to forget your past self and its clingings altogether, to pluck it out of your consciousness and be born anew. Think not of what you were, but what you aspire to be; be altogether in what you want to realize" The Mother #supermental #supramental #integralyoga #lonewolf #decisionsfromthesoul #iamnotmyemotions #trueself #psychicself #chiron #hope #truth #solotravel #nonattachment #dontknowmind #letgo #meditation #lookwithin #dearself. Thanks Ker Xavier Roussel for your art

Thank God someone finally said it ... and I thought I was the only one believing that meditation is more than sitting around stupidly ..closing your eyes ...you can do that with your eyes open ...no matter where ..no matter when ...while what ever you doing .. why need to read a book to know that?? The simplest things can become your meditation, like doing laundry or clearing dishes.Thats why meditation masters always pissed me off because they make rules about things ..that got no rules. ..telling you THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO DO IT...no its not! You're just closed minded thats a big difference. But hey lets be fair ..in one way or the other ALL ARE closed minded. There is no mind without boundaries set to itself and thats supposed to be that way. #meditation #Iamnotmymind #Iamnotmyemotions #Iamnotmyskin #imthesoulwithin

Twice now in the past twenty-four hour frame, I have been the causative factor in spills or floods--last night the table centerpiece, this morning my bathroom and kitchen. Later, the blender spilled too. I witness this and wonder. What is ungroundedness, what is UNfulFILLed, what is too much, what is stress, what am I actually paying attention to in this process of emptying? What's happening? #dontknowmind #solitude #iamnotmyemotions #meditation #whattodo #feelingnotenough #iamnotmyemotions #flood #symbolism

Is this being born or an ego death? Either term, maybe the experience is the same. Constant and even repeated confrontations of exactly where I am, what I am, what is here in this moment. Someone asked me, before I rejected his sitting next to me at smoothie time, who are you? A year's worth of deleting identities and this is what is. My fingers and tongue crave for adjectives, labels, judgments, emotions and right now I bite back, breathe out: acceptance. Is. This. #shoo #tryingtochange #thirdeyeopen #meditation #innerwork #dontnowmind #releasejudgment #iamnotmytraumas #iamnotmyemotions #itsokay #imokay #iloveyou #thisistemporary #bigeyes #adrenalfatigue #trueself #egodeath #yogaoffthemat

Acknowledge it's there and you feel it, but don't allow your emotions to control your behavior. #iamnotmymistakes #iamnotmyemotions #control #witness #action #release
