Happy to show off my smooth tanned pins on this pants off Friday thanks to @brazilianbutterflyau πŸ’•
As I walked I pondered - If there were physical indications of internal pain would people be kinder? When there is a car with the sticker 'baby on board', when someone has their arm in a sling or an old person is in a wheelchair, we are more careful around them, we recognise they are vulnerable and need our consideration. Shouldn't we treat everyone like that always? Or do we need some external signal that someone is feeling unstable, fragile and hurting? Maybe then people would be less self serving and more considerate. You just never know what someone is going through so please let's all take the time to think about how our actions and words can effect others and try to be better humans. Hope everyone has a lovely weekend, especially anyone who has had a hard week.

one on my hip, and one in my belly πŸ‘ΆπŸ½πŸ‘ΆπŸ½. this baby has been dreamed about since the day we met Luca. we kind of always thought that we wanted a "bigger" family and within 3 seconds of being parents to Luca we realized that we would in fact, God willing, have a bigger family. so, here we are, just about halfway to meeting our second Allen baby. All of this being said, I cannot lie and say that adjusting to a pregnant body is something that I love. Absolutely I feel beautiful for the fact that I am blessed enough to conceive, carry, birth, and nourish our children for my family. I promised myself after delivering Luca that "next time I am pregnant I will not be so hard on myself, I will remind myself that pregnancy although it feels long, is short, and that six weeks of having my baby earth side I will miss my bump and pregnant body"...yet, here I am, beating myself up, feeling like a massive, baby making machine, and I'm only halfway. Any other mamas guilty of doing this? It's so absolutely ridiculous, and I realize this with every fiber of my being. So, having said all of this, I am going to leave a PSA right here for all of you that 1) have never been pregnant yourself, 2) have never been close to a woman who has journeyed through pregnancy and motherhood--- things that you don't say to a pregnant woman: 1) "wow, you're not as skinny as I was expecting you to be." (or anything relating to a woman's weight and change in body) 2) you're not nearly as far along as I was expecting you to be! Oh. On a positive note, things that are always welcome to the ears of a pregnant woman; 1) you are ALLLLLL belly 2) omg! I didn't even know that you were pregnant until you told me! 3) you are just a glowing πŸ¦„. Okay, on that note, I am going to get back to my cardio. But in all honesty, I am so thankful for you sweet baby allen, you just make this body your little home and know that we can't wait to kiss your face #diarytobabya #pregnant #vulnerability

You guys. How did I get so lucky? Thank you for all of your amazing love that has been such a silver lining for me in a time of need. I've healed so much already, and I have you to thank! ❀️

It's good to be connected with technology. It's also good to disconnect for a little while and discover what deeper connections are waiting for you.

Just because you have kids doesn't make you more worthy. Honest discussion over on @nobullshitmotherhood Insta Stories with me and @anniesertich (who doesn't have children.) check it out! #nobullshitmotherhood #vulnerability #onbeinghuman #youmatter #realmotherfuckinglife

Today - I feel like the mute button. Like a fuzzy TV screen. Suspended.
.
And that's okay. I have learned to stop asking myself why I feel how I feel. To stop searching for the needle in the haystack. To trust that if I move over and make room for it at the altar of my emotions, it will wash over me.

Having trouble releasing doubt and insecurity the past couple weeks.
Constantly returning to the question 'what am I doing with my life?'
I know it's a phase; a season that will not last. There is something here for me to learn but my impatience and self critique are getting the better of me. Can't someone give me all the answers?! Patience, compassion and love. I will find my way... #tbt To me remembering who I am. .

SAVE BRUSCHETTA! Public must adopt or foster this publicly adoptable dog BEFORE 12PM ET TOMORROW 5-26-2017; otherwise she will be killed at #Brooklyn Center.
.
My name is #BRUSCHETTA. My Animal ID #A1112686. I am a female brown am #pitbull ter mix. The shelter thinks I am about 2 YEARS. I came in the shelter as a STRAY on 05/21/2017. She is on the kill list because she has allowed only minimal handling during her time in the care center; a New Hope Rescue will partner with the adopter or foster to help her adjust and #decompress into a new environment - she's a social caterpillar inside but just needs the time to open up!
.
A volunteer writes: When I asked a staff member about Bruschetta (referring to her as β€œthe dog behind the #blanket” because I couldn’t remember her name and we’re trying to minimize #stress by making her kennel as much of a private den as possible!) the response I got was β€œShe doesn’t want you to #touch her…but I like her!” She is definitely a #social caterpillar and the #vulnerability she embodies combined with maybe the #sweetest, most #expressive #face ever make it hard not to more-than-like her. She is very #fearful and needs time and treats (lots of both!), but has made #huge #progress in her stay. She went from pulling like a little horse in an effort to run away from me on our first walk to propping her paws up on me every few moments to solicit petting on our last. It’s hard not to think (whether rational or not!) that given how poorly she’s doing in a strange environment, that she might be the same amount of #amazing in one where she feels safe. The shelter is no place for Italian appetizers, #caterpillars, #butterflies, or a scared out of her mind dog…but maybe your place is πŸ™‚ Bruschetta is at Brooklyn ACC looking for a place to make her cocoon!
.
If LOCAL to the Tri-State, New England, and the general Northeast United States area, and you are SERIOUS about #adopting orfostering, email helpdogs@urgentpodr.org. Experienced volunteers will do their best to guide you through the process.

Flash back to this night where I danced for my first time on stage with my soul sister by my side @alexapobjie
my body experienced all kinds of emotions, I cried, I didn't eat, I felt sick, nervous I had so much adrenaline going through my body it was so powerful, I let myself be vulnerable in front of 400 people!!! but it was all worth it βœ¨πŸ™ŒπŸ½
β€’
The fear of failing, stuffing up, making a fool of myself, forgetting the steps it all went through my head➑️ heck I missed a move in the dance but I DID IT and I won I did what people said I couldn't do and I got perfect scores 10 10 10.5 πŸ™πŸ½πŸ˜‚
β€’
So ask yourself what can you do to put yourself out of your comfort zone, what are you sitting on that you can challenge and embrace the risk of failing (it's where the magic happens)
What is it?

Keeping a daily ritual to refocus keeps me sane, 80 percent raw greens and fruits throughout the day protects against sun damage and makes me happy. Just kidding! 😏This is how Instagram can be deceiving at times. Although I do use it to lift me up most of the time, no one is bright eyed and bushy tailed 24/7. I'm pretty sure I'm meditating here because I was NOT happy. Learning the tools life gave you when Ure in a far from ideal situation is a good thing. As is admitting you're not always happy. Who is? Having needs is okay. Setting boundaries is okay. Being angry when people cross them is also okay. Changing your focus after sitting with the emotions is a good thing. Just don't sit too long or it can spiral down into a snowball effect if you are sensitive like me. The most important thing right now is to literally start feeling our emotions fully. Becoming vulnerable. Expressing our needs. Meeting them. No, not every man is an island. That is just adding to human separation. Whoever said that was wounded and lonely. They projected that " every man for himself " crap is empowering. It is not. Community is. Openness, listening, vulnerability, love, friendship, loyalty, laughter, sharing experiences, lifting each other up, being AUTHENTIC.This is where the power lies. As well as knowing you can love someone but simply not like them at all....That is okay too. Some of these things are much easier said then done. It takes a little bit of courage to sit with your fears fully and not try to distract yourself. Im bored of going in circles. So logically I'd rather try something else. For now ...Lighting candles, while in bed all day watching #tealswan, #gabriellebernstein #marieforleo YouTube videos,and reading books i have been putting off .....is def okay! Extended amount of time in bed with the result of more insomnia... not so great.....#vulnerability #vulnerabilityisstrength #love#friendship#sunfood#motherearth #meditationspace #feelyourheart #bewithyouremotions #tealswan #tomkenyon #sitwithyourfear #sitwithyourthoughts #sitwithyourpain

Self-love challenge Day 5:
⏩ In honour of the new moon in Gemini: I love my mind, although it sometimes drives me crazy. I have a very active mind (natal moon in Gemini) and expressing/communicating my thoughts/emotions is super important to me, otherwise I can literally go mental. πŸŒ‘πŸŒœ
⏩ I love my heart. I know I have a good heart and this is all that matters.πŸ’“
⏩ I love my voice, even though it's still quiet and quite unsure, it speaks my truth πŸ“£
✨ Wishing you a joyful day ✨
πŸ’’ Meditate on what this new moon in Gemini might bring you πŸ’’

Made a flower essence over the new moon.. when I was straining it I realized the stalks had curled into themselves.. so interesting. It matches the concept of the "doctrine of signatures" This one is for things like intimacy and letting go of one's innate desire to fall into oneself or the other while learning how to be at peace, vulnerable, open to possibilities as well as yours and another person's truth.

I've re-gained my confidence firstly by being vulnerable. That's how positive changes started to happen in my life. Some of the things I share with you in my book Dear Confidence I never shared them before. So bringing this book to the world is true vulnerability to me. Do you embrace vulnerability?
