When i started T I was a punk kid. My gf at the times brother was jacked af (& on steroids) and I got sucked into the hype to get "big". I began abusing my testosterone taking 2-3 times my prescribed dose. It didnt happen right away, but my hair began to thin. Around this time i got really into conciousness. Reading a ton of literature and dabbling with meditation. One trip to a hot yoga studio and i was put in my place. Completely humbled by the experience. I wasnt healthy or fit. I could barely finish the class. My strength was completely unfunctional. What good is all the muscle if you cant even move?? A major shift took place. I quit abusing my t and began the journey of knowing my true self. This has given me more fulfilment than anything else.
I no longer see everything as competition, because thats not what i believe we are here for. We are all great in our own ways and I believe we are here to learn, grow and evolve as conciousness.
As a transman, i feel like i was given the perfect opportunity to realize that we are not our bodies. This body is just a robe we wear for a very short time. Dont become attached. Get out of your head and into your heart. Your trueself knows the way!

My entire life I've felt misunderstood. I've been judged and called so many different things. Arrogant, crazy, diva, selfish, etc... But I never took it personal. I always ignored the comments and even that bothered people. Sometimes this world will make you feel like you can't be who you are and you have to change. I'm only 22, but if there's one thing I've learned in this short time it's that you can't let anything or anyone change your outlook or opinion of yourself. Because at the end of the day, only YOU knows YOU best! #knowyourself #knowyourworth

I am in the strange situation where life is really hard in so many ways, and still I´m deeply touched by life’s beauty. YOU are the beauty. Connection and love is the beauty. I`ve started on this caption an endless number of times, because I really need to say thank you!! Your personal messages, comments and love sent at my direction keeps me going. My body has been like a prison guard from hell, screaming NO whenever I try to do something, forcing me to just stay in bed for several months. A sick body commands. When we are healthy our body obeys. I think about how clever and elegant our body is. In a healthy state it doesn´t scream at you to rest and care for your self. It whispers gently in it´s own language: a little tiredness, irritation, emptiness, adrenalin rush, an ache…. Not disturbing you too much, just trying to remind you of the importance of self-care. Guiding you gently towards listening to your self. Sadly many of us overlook the message, push it away with coffee, pills and alcohol, or curse at this damn body that doesn´t work perfectly. Or like me, we want to take care of our self, but we haven´t learned from childhood what good self-care is. We tend to label the body’s messages as symptoms and problems that must be fixed and removed, so we can keep on with our (disconnected) life. But when we are rude to ourselves our body will speak louder, because we have to care for ourselves to survive and thrive: A migraine, a depression, pain, anxiety, insomnia… and eventually the worst scenario might be chronic or fatal conditions. My story is a slowly fall, and in the end, a total collapse along this path. My absence here has been lonely and frustrating, and I´ve missed you. But to be honest my absence is a victory, because it means I´ve learned to listen and respect my body’s signals. I dream of a day when I´m healthy enough to experience the body’s elegant whisper again. And I pray that I have learned my lesson and will listen to it, respect it, and even thank the symptoms for guiding me towards a balanced life. Our symptoms are not our enemies. They are friends and helpers, if we let them be.
I´m forever grateful for your love!!!

I just have so much respect and admiration for this man. I've been following his music and interviews for years....His philosophy and take on everything from a business standpoint, music, racial equality has always been GENIUS. #KnowYourself 🙏🏾

Brene explains that for her this quote means: “you better be able to tell the truth about who you are and where you come from and what you’re up against, and like yourself in the process of telling that truth because our sense of worthiness lives inside that story.” She goes on to explain that if we do not claim worthiness inside of our story, we end up hustling for worthiness on the outside of our story – who we are and what we believe becomes secondary to who do you want me to be and what do you want me to believe. I’ve been reflecting on what my ‘hustle’ can look like, especially during times of stress or when I’m feeling particularly vulnerable. The list isn’t short: perfectionism, pretending, pleasing, always being right, staying quiet… At the moment ‘always being right’ is headlining. You see we’re doing a lot of things for the first time building Authentic Woman, everything from figuring out how to get your beautiful blog comments into our customer service platform so we don’t miss a single one to writing launch communications that come from our heart, our truth and not our marketing mindsets. I find myself going into ‘expert mode’ quite a bit rather than simply admitting to myself, to Jo and others supporting us that often I have no idea how to do this and getting down into the muck of uncertainty and muddling along and figuring it out as we go. Hustling the expert feels especially stressful when I’m asked to figure something out on the spot or support Jo figuring something out in the moment, my expert wants to run away and madly research it all and come back with a ‘ta da here’s the answer’ rather than be seen to not know or not have it figured out yet. I’ve sought refuge from feeling not valued by being the expert many times in my life, especially my work-life. When I’m the ‘expert’ on something the group values or needs then I feel valued, I feel like I have something to bring to the group, something to bring to a relationship. I’ve typically hustled being the expert because I don’t innately believe I am of value just the way I am. I don’t trust in my intrinsic worthiness, my natural creativity, resourcefulness and tenacity. This awareness and...

Never settle for what you have been told your worth , the only person that should be responsible for setting the price tag and your desired compensation is YOU period .#enjoythejourney @epsportsgroup #knowyourself #knowyourworth


it's driven me before, and it seems to be the way that everyone else gets around, but lately I am beginning to find that when I drive myself my light is found. ▪️▫️▪️ photo by @eliza.mas #knowyourself #workhardandbenicetopeople

If your path doesn't lead you home, you can never surrender. Find yourself and find happiness. #sundayovereasy #deepthoughts #knowyourself #happiness #exploreeverything #paths #whodoyouthinkyouare #hallmarklife #beyourself #runscituate #neighbors

This is a part of life. Not everyone is meant to be with you throughout all phases of your journey and just as people leave your path you will leave other people's path. Accept it, do not resist it. If the ones you want to hold on to most are really meant to be with you, they will return. #lizinspireshope

"Ylang Ylang is a powerful remedy for the heart. Modern day society honors and reveres the mind over the heart. Yet the heart, with its intuitive ways of receiving information, is an essential part of the soul. Ylang Ylang reconnects an individual with the child self and the pure, simple ways of the heart. It encourages play and restores a childlike nature and innocence." -from the book, "Emotions & Essential Oils" #knowyourself #emotionalintelligence #emotionalmastery #essentialoils #ylangylang #essentialfirstfruits #howwedoterra

" I think it's very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person " 💗 #oscarwilde
