Part of todays self care challenge is to light a candle.

Take some time today to light a candle if you don't have that maybe you can use a incense stick.

Once you have lit the candle notice the smells. This can be something to add to your me time. 📸 @yankeecandle

GOOD NIGHT, Squirrels! 🐿

We’re posting this as much for ourselves as it is intended for those of you who can relate. Sometimes we can really doubt we have the ability to see something like The Metaxas Method through, to have it grow and reach as many people as possible. This is huge! And it’s an important undertaking. With a lot of self acceptance, hard work and by just “doing” each day we know we can reach our goals.🥰
.
🗣Something like this account and our YouTube, challenges our ADHD greatly, which is actually a really good thing. Of course it also leads to the usual frustrations most ADHDers feel. .
.
🗣Since we are now an “out” DID system we can tell you that each of us has a vision to share with the world! This can become really overwhelming at times. However, we do believe in our messages of self acceptance and personal growth. We stand firm knowing we can reach out to people and inspire change in the way they view their conditions and ultimately themselves. We know we CAN make a difference. .💯💚💯
.
🗣We do flounder a lot and forget just how talented we are, especially working together as a team. We can forget we bring value to what we do. Sometimes it can feel like we’re fighting an uphill battle against stigma. .
.
🗣So each day, and trust us, also many times through out our day, we remind ourselves about what really matters; our “whys” behind what we do. And we appreciate those moments when you inspire us, which happens TONS (so thank you). It totally helps us keep that spark bright. .
.
🗣For everyone out there reading this:
Believe in yourself! There is a 1 in 3 Trillion chance of even being born. Perhaps things are truly really difficult right now just please try to remember the universe placed you here in this time and space for a reason. To be you. To experience your life to it’s fullest. We’re not naive in thinking if we blow some sugar out there things will get sweeter. Like you, we need to work hard, sometimes just get through the day. .
.
We believe in ourselves, and WE BELIEVE IN YOU! 🐿❤️

Say Yes, written by Melia Donk.
This daily battle rages in my brain, ‘am I enough?’ I really struggle with this. There’s always something isn’t there? That thought that says ‘I’d be better if I was just this..’, ‘they’d like me more if I did this, if I wasn’t like that.’ Self confidence is hard won, it really doesn’t come easily. I’ve spent so much of my life wishing I was more than I am. It’s exhausting thinking you’re not good enough. It’s time to stop. Say yes ❤️

Find Inspiration Within Yourself ♡

It doesn't matter where you physically are. You don't have to be anywhere else in the world to be able to find inner peace, emotional balance, and happiness and inspiration within yourself.

Do I feel like I belong in Jersey? No, not at all. However, I used to think I had to be in another place to find happiness and I was wrong. It's up to you to work towards finding the joy you seek, no matter where you may be in this world.

Even the sky in Jersey is sometimes beautiful... If your heart and brain are in the right place, your own beauty and bravery will create a blanket of positivity around you. And you too will thrive and conquer; you too will fulfill your innermost desires and be rewarded for your hard work and determination.

"From childhood's hour I have not been. As others were, I have not seen. As others saw, I could not awaken. My heart to joy at the same tone. And all I loved, I loved alone." --- Edgar Allan Poe

I feel I've never seen life/world/others as most see them. How could I? My perception was tainted in my earliest memories. The real question is, are the damaged masses the true "norm"? Have we been lied to? .

Happy #WorldKindessDay🦋🌏❤

e v e r y d a y
should be world kindness day. •

I am still shocked every time someone is kind to me. I constantly feel like I am undeserving of that kindess. Or kind people. Or kind actions. • With that, it's easy to say be kind to others. But much, much harder to be kind to yourself, especially when you constanly feel worthless. Trying to silence the negative thoughts is hard and even harder is saying something kind to combat that. •

Even making this post, or getting back to journaling feels like a struggle. I cant draw or write anything without thinking: " hey, that's disgusting. Are you really gonna share that with the world?" •

And I know it's the depression. I know they're mostly cognitive distortions. I know I am not worthless. I know that I am not fat. I know who I am. I am worthy and loved and artistic and full of life. But some days, days like this, it is really hard to be k i n d to me. •

So I post it anyway. So I write anyway. So I do it any freaking way. I say it out loud. I say it even if I dont believe it. And you should to. •

Repeat after me:
I AM BEAUTIFUL.
I MATTER.
I AM LOVED (I love you).
I AM WANTED.
I AM DOING MY BEST.
I FORGIVE MYSELF.
I AM A STRONG MOTHER EFFING BEAST.
I WILL SURVIVE.
And maybe one day, even thrive🦋

This time, one month ago I started off on a new chapter. One of self worth, one of closing old chapters, one of fighting for myself to be me again, one for taking down these demons that slay me, one for demolishing my nightmares of past abuse, one for me.
.
This day a month ago was like a new beginning, and on October 10, 2018 - that was my eye opener.

Be mindful "Let's raise children who won't have to recover from their childhoods." - Pam Leo


This is such an important message. So many folks are in therapy or are in need of therapy because of this. They go through life feeling inadequate because they were patented from a critical lense. #Blackmentalhealthvisibility
