Should we make plans or let life take its course? Your brain can be filled with plans, ideas, hopes and dreams but it’s up to you to allow these things to happen. You are your own gate keeper.

I hate to admit this, but I will because I feel like IG can be just a mass of cultivated squares of perceived perfection: This fluffy girl quite literally saved my life. We got Hazelbelle during a particularly rough patch in my marriage, my parenting, and my mental health. The first two months we had her, I absolutely hated her - not because of her but because I was severely mentally ill and had not sought treatment. I was very lonely, very sad, and very, very sick. She gave my marriage common ground to bond back together over, she gave me perspective about my flaws in my parenting and how to do better, but also do less. She softened my loneliness and the sharpness of my anxiety. She brought a little bit of color back for me - just enough for me to cling onto. Although I did end up seeking medical & pharmaceutical treatment (because really no dog or miracle worker could hold a candle to the depth or severity of my disorders), Hazel became a warm, solid shadow behind me. I’ve held her in sadness, utter joy, fear, and tears and for all my flaws she loves me beyond my worth. Every night before I go to sleep she comes over to my side of the bed and lays her head against me before going into her crate. She rests her head against the back of my neck when I’m bent over tying my shoes or playing with Knox. She walks beside me on the beach, or runs through the rain at night with me. Where ever I am, she moves to be next to me. That level of love was a lesson for me: that I deserve to be happy because I was and am good enough. Really, how could I ever repay her? . . . . . . #dogsofinstagram #dogs #doglover #doglovers #animallover #goldenretriever #golden #goldendoodle #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #anxiety #anxietydisorders #anxietyawareness #marriage #parenting #motherhood #dogmom #bestdog #bestdogever
Because one day you’re going to look around and wonder if it was all worth it. You’re going to sit back and question every move you’ve ever made, and wonder if this is where you’re supposed to be. You’re going to question if you’ve taken the right steps, and done everything according to plan. That’s certainly where I’ve landed. And then I looked down at my wrists and saw everything I’ve stood for, and everything I stand for. I see everything I’ve fought for, and everything I fight for. I see every moment of pain, and every triumphant victory. If I had to do it all over again, every bad decision, every painful step...well, I would. Because even though every day is unpredictable, and often chaotic, it has all led to a life I thought was all but over. To me, that makes it absolutely worth it.
2 years ago, I did something silly while battling through a high fever - I signed up to run the London Marathon. In 6 months I went from zero to marathon runner. This year I’ve decided to run not one but two of these fuckers - The Greater Manchester Marathon and Edinburgh Marathon. That’s 26.2 miles x 2! 🤦🏻‍♀️ You can help push me on by donating anything spare to my chosen charity - @mindcharity . They do some amazing work in the UK providing help and support to those struggling with mental health issues.

Do you need a #reframe in your life? @brenebrown is here for you (and so are we) ・・・ Rolling into 2019 with a little perfectionism reality-check (because I need it). . Perfectionism is not the same thing as striving for excellence. Perfection is not about healthy achievement and growth. . Perfectionism is the belief that if we live perfect, look perfect, and act perfect, we can minimize or avoid the pain of blame, judgment, and shame. It’s a shield. Perfectionism is a twenty-ton shield that we lug around thinking it will protect us, when, in fact, it’s the thing that’s really preventing us from being seen and taking flight. . Perfectionism is not self-improvement. Perfectionism is, at its core, about trying to earn approval and acceptance. . Most perfectionists were raised being praised for achievement and performance (grades, manners, rule-following, people-pleasing, appearance, sports). Somewhere along the way, we adopt this dangerous and debilitating belief system: I am what I accomplish and how well I accomplish it. Please. Perform. Perfect. Prove. . Healthy striving is self-focused – How can I improve? Perfectionism is other-focused – What will people think? . Lay down the shield. Pick up your life. Let’s keep 2019 brave, kind, and awkward. #psychotherapy   #counseling  #socialwork   #chicagopsychotherapy #chicagocounseling   #chicagosocialwork   #evanstonpsychotherapy #evanstoncounseling   #evanstonsocialwork   #depression   #anxiety #collegestudents   #stress   #mentalhealth  #mentalhealthawareness #youarenotalone  #edwarrior   #prorecovery  #recovery   #strongenough #eatingdisorder   #eatingdisorders   #recoveryispossible

I like this! What do you do to combat anxiety or stress when you're in the moment? Prayer? Meditation? Going outside? Being with family? Journaling? Yoga? All these help me. Take care of yourself out there friends!

I started a low carb/fat/sugar diet and started working out a bunch just over a week ago now because I hadn't been taking the best care of myself for most of my life, and I can honestly say the results I'm not only seeing, but also feeling already are making me super happy. This has already been the best thing ever for my physical and mental health, and for my self confidence. I can't wait to see how I feel/look in another week. This diet and exercise routine is literally helping me beat my depression day by day. I really wish I started this sooner, but I couldn't be more proud of myself for starting now and keeping myself perfectly on track. 😊 #selfcare #selflove #workout #diet #selfimprovement #progress #cleaneating #healthyliving #happiness #happy #selfimprovement #improvement #change #fit #alt #altgirl #self #selfie #pale #weightloss #weightlossjourney #getfit #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #depression #anxiety #workoutmotivation #workoutroutine #alternativegirl #nofilter #latergram
Walked out of my ward review today. They say they don’t trust me, so won’t give me any extra escorted leave. My mom managed to get me an extra hour once I walked out so that’s 3 hours a day now. I’m still planning on going to the cinema with friends on Friday even if I do go over on my leave. My psychiatrist is still calling the recovery unit a care home which is really pissing me off as I find it so degrading At lunch the deputy manager decided that we are no longer allowed our light projectors unless they are written into our care plan. As none of our names nurses are in today, it means none of us have got them tonight. My light projector is the only thing here that I use to calm me down, seen as they take forever to give out PRN and I’m not receiving any psychology here. It honestly seems pointless me being SH free if it’s means nothing in my reviews. Ive finally found out after asking for over a week who my new named nurse is (my old named nurse broke her ankle in a restraint with a patient). Shame she didn’t bother to tell me herself when she was on shift today. Hoping she is in soon so that I can get my projector back. -pic credit @inpatientmemes #ASD #Autism #Autismawareness #Autistic #Mentalhealth #Mentalhealthawareness #Mentalillness #Mentalhealthillness #Mentalhealthrecovery #Invisableillness #Anxiety #MH #Selfharm #Selfinflicted #Scars #Selfharmscars #Inpatient #Psychward #Psychiatrichospital #Sectioned #Section3 #Mentalhealthact #Suicide #Suicidalthoughts #Suicidalideation
Depression is commonly construed as sadness, especially in pubescent teens. The truth is depression affects everyone differently, and together we can show and help people understand depression! For me depression is like laying at the bottom of grave while everyone you love is standing above you, and not having the energy or care to say anything or move. How does depression feel for you? #depression #MentalHealthAwareness #smashthestigmacanada #mentalillness #mentalhealthadvocate #greenribbon #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #endstigma #breakthestigma #anxiety #panic #supportmh #youthmentalhealth #youarenotalone #sicknotweak #depressionisreal
My whole life I always felt “less than.” I was always the weird one, the different one. Most people couldn’t relate to me. I never had tons of friends in high school or college. I was never “cool.” I’m not saying my life sucked, because it didn’t, but I never “fit in.” That was all I wanted was to fit in. To be popular and beautiful, successful. But I never did. I always felt like I stuck out like a sore thumb when all I wanted to do was blend in. All this was way before I ever learned I had a mental health condition. Now, I no longer care about fitting in. To be honest, I still don’t want to stand out, but I’m becoming more and more comfortable with being myself. People are going to reject you no matter what you do. At some point you have to decide that their opinions don’t determine your reality. You are uniquely you and no on can take that away from you! Even if you feel all alone, that no one cares, just know you’re not. There is a whole community of people who understand you. They get it, and so do I. And so does God. Even if you don’t believe in Him, just know that He believes in you.❤️
there are sparkles in your flaws and magic flowing through your veins your stretch marks, cellulite, dimples, birthmarks, scars, and any other flaw that you deem imperfect? those are what make you undeniably and authentically YOU perfect is boring it is unattainable and the journey to finding this fleeting perfection is painful and unnecessary you are worth more than that and i guarantee the people that truly see you, the ones that truly love you for all that you are all they see is perfection anyway so really you’re worried for nothing i love you brave babes time to bloom • #babesinbloom #bib #brave #bloom #mindfulness #loveyourself #mentalhealthawareness #selflove #selfcare #nourishnotpunish #bodypositive #anorexiarecovery #edwarrior #PTSD #ednos #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #personaltrainer #womenempowerment #womensupportingwomen #goodvibesonly #loveyourbody #fitfam #bootybuilding #girlswholift #surrender #heal #empower #SHE

The stigma surrounding mental health needs to end. There is no shame in not being okay. Mental health is so important and it needs to be talked about. One of my main goals with my company @haveheartco is to make apparel that gets people talking. Who wants to see this on a shirt?!
I really spent a lot of time going over the things that work for me when fighting depression in this one! What are things that help you?
This Girl Missie Rienstra ... is amazing! She is my inspiration... my friend and my Champion this week! For all you peeps out there that think that you can't lose the weight... you can't make the time.... you can't change your life.... She has killed all your excuses and more! There are some of you in here that I have never met before. Some of you I’ve known for a long time. I wanted to do a side by side to show my progress. I had a tough time finding a “before” pic that wasn’t from my wedding. Apparently I wasn’t too fond of having full body pics taken when I was 300+ pounds. I wonder why? So this is me. All of me. Raw. Before and not “after” but I’ll just say “recent”. I have people ask me all of the time, “which diet are you on?” “Are you taking any pills?” My answer is always the same, “hard work, healthy eating, and exercise is my key” I’ve had, and will continue to have, ups and downs. Wins and losses. Progress and regression. But right now, in this moment, I am in a good place with momentum on my side.

RSN’s 20th kidney prom👗💜 𝟙/𝟚𝟘/𝟚𝟘𝟙𝟡 • I am SO thankful to be able to dance and not get out of breath in 5 seconds. I felt so free towards the end of the night, heels off, dancing to 80’s pop, and having a moment where I truly did not care what I looked like. I didn’t have to think about dialysis curfew either and it’s honestly just unbelievable. • Here’s my night🌃😌 In the beginning my social anxiety took over😬I just sat there wanting to dance but was unable to get myself up and there, feeling very self conscious and frustrated. My mind was fighting with my wants. I met a couple friends from Insta in person. Talking to friends from online and then meeting them in person is SURREAL and made my night💗😄 I then went with some new friends and danced on the dance floor.(I cannot do heels so those came off😂)The DJ started playing 80’s pop and that was the perfect gateway to get me dancing💃🏻I then met Jack Black who is a LEGEND. I had a conversation about his movie School of Rock(which I’m sure he’s talked to others about millions of times, but he was so sweet and had a calm and zen energy😌) Friends and I goofed off at the photo booth not knowing what to pose every single time😂We danced some more, the classics were playing, Bon Jovi, Michael Jackson, Journey, ..🎤 • I’m so grateful Rsn gives us all this opportunity to get together at this dance where others our age have gone through or are going through similar experiences regarding kidney disease.💜 Thank you RSN! • • • • • #chronickidneydisease #kidneytransplant #invisibleillnessawareness #invisibleillness #mentalhealthawareness #chronicillness #kidneydisease #prom #posttransplant #kidneytransplant #donatelife #kidneyfailure #jackblack #dialysis #ca #oc #la #shareyourspare #rsn #dance #rsnprom
Reposted from @sacredcirclecounseling - ((I don’t believe people are toxic—behaviors and dynamics yes, people no. And we can, and do, all at one time or another engage in some form of “toxic” something. But overall, this message is 👌🏼👌🏼 💯 )) . EDIT:::: . After further reflection, I’m not actually sure it’s relevant, necessary, or helpful to distinguish between the person being toxic or their behavior being toxic. . Particularly in the context of my page. . Most my posts are directed toward other fellow highly sensitive people, empaths, recovering people-pleasers, and folx who, due to unhealthy family dynamics or other kinds of trauma (oppression being a big one) are having to relearn as adults how to set boundaries in order to protect themselves from “toxic people.” . If someone is chronically engaging in abusive behavior with little to no remorse and/or motivation to change, they might was well be considered toxic. . From this unique perspective, and with this population in mind—most of whom *suffer* from an OVER-abundance of empathy, not a lack of it—allowing oneself to categorize abusers as toxic is a form of self-care. . Making the clear statement—“this person is toxic”—can help begin and facilitate the process of drawing firm and healthy boundaries in situations that call for it. . Repost @realitycheckastrology . #imagedescription “toxic people will not be changed by the alchemy of your kindness. Yes, be kind. But move on swiftly and let life be their educator.” . #boundaries #healthyboundaries #love #healyourself #selfcare #selfcompassion #selfawareness #soulwork #personalgrowth #innerwork #highlysensitiveperson #empath #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #spiritualityandmentalhealth #modernmystic #spiritualhealing #soulgrowth #tarotreadersofinstagram #astrologersofinstagram #queertherapist #spiritualawareness #spiritualawakening #transpersonalpsychology #selflove #radicalselflove #childhoodtrauma #cptsd

How do you stop the thoughts of overthinking your overthinking about overthinking #harleydavidsontattoo #harleydavidson #inked #inkl #tattedup #viclas #tattooedguys #mentalhealthawareness #depprsionisnotweak #imustkeepgoing
Greatness is a choose. When we choose to believe that great things happen to great people we attract it into our lives. If this is not your reality, change the way you think. Start thinking this now and watch how you can begin to transform your life and outer world experiences. #syncbig #resync2019 #mindset #personalgrowth #transformationalcoaching #thinkdifferently #yesyoucan #youmust #nowisthetime #sayyestoyourself #mentalhealthawareness #couragetobeyou #selfmadehero #selfworth #selfesteem #changeyourmindset #shiftyourthinking #dailyinspiration #motovation #inspireimpactinfluence #personalgrowth #selfawareness
*trigger warning* one last post to thank everyone who's taken time out if their day to watch and support my video, sending beautiful comments and messages - my heart is so full I was originally massively sceptical about posting, but I am now so relived and so appreciative for everyone's kindness💛
Do you always ask yourself this question?? Why does this always happen to me? IT DOESN’T you just op to go from your past memory. Why is the traffic ALWAYS bad (in angry voice) it’s not always bad you just CHOOSE not to remember the time you got home early one day. Why is the weather always so bad?? ITS NOT YOU CHOOSE not to remember the good times you had in the sunshine.Why Does this keep happening to me IT doesn’t YOU go off past negative thoughts. Try this next time this happens to you..:. Close your eyes for 1 minute and remember all good positive things you got going in your life go to that happy place you loved when you were there and it will soon bring a smile to your face. Have great day people the world is beautiful because I CHOOSE to see it that ACCEPT THE THINGS YOU CANNOT CHANGE, AND COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS YOU CAN#mentalhealth #lifecoach #positivepeople #life #positivethinking #gym #gymmotivation #positivity #motivationalquotes #inspirationalquotes #influencer #love #capturethemoment #follow #motivation #relax #love #goals #fitness #travel #explore #travelblogger #mentalhealthawareness #beautiful #happy #choices #instagram #instagood #nofilter
