Nothing heals the past like time. True, but .... Of course I’m referring to a painful past. We have all been through something that has hurt us. Some of us have a few scrapes and bruises. Some of us had big gashes and wounds.
It’s true that time will help heal all wounds, but only if you are actually taking care of it properly.
If you’re in pain and expect it to just go away in a week/month/year after picking at it every day or ignoring it, you’re wrong.
Dealing with pain takes care, thought, patience, work and acceptance. Locking up pain in a box and setting it away in your mind only strengthens it more until one day it breaks out of the box and wreaks havoc on you.
I first learned this lesson years ago. I was dealing with a lot of issues and it was affecting me emotionally. For as long as i could remember i kept ignoring it, tried playing it off and even running from it, until one day it caught up to me and almost ruined my life.
Thankfully i was strong enough to deal with it head on, accept it and finally let it heal. This took a few years, but it was only after i starting helping it heal that i was able to see what life could bring and start living as happy as i am now.
Don’t let pain fester. Don’t pick at your wounds. Don’t ignore what hurts you.
Deal with it.
Take care of your emotions.
Work towards healing.
Help time help you heal faster.

Being sick is the worst! 😷 I’ve been on the couch for the last three days resting and caring for myself in a whole different way than usual, but I’m finally back up and on my grind. 🙆🏼♀️ Sometimes our bodies need time to rest and recover... it’s so important that we listen and allow them time to heal. I’ll probably still be taking it a little easy for the next day or two, but I seriously cannot wait to get some fresh air and move my body again. Here’s to a new week.🤸🏼♀️ Happy Monday.
• Monday Minute • For most of us, today is a once in a blue moon Monday off, so I’ve promised myself to slow down & take a minute to reflect ✨🙌🏻 • From @yung_pueblo
: Slow moments are when we get to practice what we have learned, when we get to see the strength of our patience, when we can measure our commitment to our goals and examine if our happiness is too dependent on their completion, and when we get to see how much more we need to grow to be fully comfortable in the present moment.
When things move slower than what we normally prefer, we get to see clearly the cravings that cause us misery. Like difficult fast moving moments, slow moments are when we are most open to big leaps of growth, they show us what areas of our being need healing. •

A gentle reminder for everyone around me, including myself is that patience is key, key to anything. 🧘♀️ When it comes to progress, it’s not gonna happen over night, whether it’s mental health recovery, school, your job or your relationship. Everything just needs time to grow and to improve, so if one area in your life takes longer to improve focus on some other long-term goals, start a new hobby, a new language, anything that keeps you distracted from something which is slowly consuming your patience and see how things will get better day by day. Or maybe week by week. And never, never, never discourage anyone who is on the way to achieve progress, no matter how slow it is. Time is just relative and some people might take longer for something that you would consider as easy such as getting over someone. Encourage your environment and they‘ll reflect it ✨

This photo took a lot of patience and a lot of treats
“Patience is a form of wisdom.”
I like where I’m headed. Community yoga teacher training is wrapping up next month, new website is almost complete(!), and learning more about 💰🤞🏾
I may or may not have been driving while this photo was taken?? I’m sure I’m not the only person who’s paused in the middle of the street for a photo 🤷🏾♀️
In what ways do you wish that people were different? It's normal to wish that others were different, just like it's normal to wish that you, yourself, were different
Accepting people does not itself mean agreeing with them, approving of them, waiving your own rights, or downplaying their impact upon you. You can still take appropriate actions to protect or support yourself or others. Or you can simply let people be. Either way, you accept the reality of the other person. You may not like it, you may not prefer it, you may feel sad or angry about it, but at a deeper level, you are at peace with it. That alone is a blessing. And sometimes, your shift to acceptance can help things get better.

🎶: He still loves me
It’s lengthy but have a read...So as many of you know I’m out here pursuing the American “dream” but to be totally honest things are not always as they appear , right now times are hard as unforeseen circumstances have knocked me massively! But by Gods Grace I woke up this morning and I have breath in my body a roof over my head Nd clothes on my back.I have been blessed with this gift to give back unto the lord and to share with you all to stay empowered to keep going/fighting for your dreams regardless! No matter what decisions I make my God loves me and has my back always and I am not afraid to say I am a man of God and I love the lord and its him alone that has brought me this far. The devil is trying me 100% but he got the wrong one because the more he comes against me the more I will declare the blood of Jesus who died for my sins. I just want to say to you all stay encouraged, stay strong and even if you do not believe keep the faith and know what’s meant for you will never pass you by and what isn’t will. I don’t care if this gets 1 view and 1 like I just pray that this post helps someone out there going through difficult times. Stay encouraged people love and light to you all. 🖤

Жизнь хитра. Когда у меня на руках все карты, она внезапно решает играть в шахматы. 😅
И вот я счастлив. И вот некому об этом сказать. 🥳
Если б ты, Михалыч, был просто змея — тогда еще ничего, ну, змея как змея. Но ты же черная мамба, есть такая южноафриканская змея — черная мамба! — от ее укуса человек издыхает за 30 секунд до ее укуса! 😜
Каждый из нас своей молитвой, любовью, верой вносит свой маленький вклад в построение единого Храма — Церкви Христовой, храма, веры, который нельзя разрушить.
Александр Владимирович Мень (1935–1990) — священник Русской православной церкви
Нужно совершенствовать прежде всего самих себя. Миру нужно увидеть людей, воплощающих закон Божий. А они так редко встречаются в наше время.
