Mental health sucks! However, Today is the first day in a long time that I have felt ok. I’m posting this as a self appreciation. I love my makeup, my hair but also I love that I have accepted my #sightloss
. For not only the friends I’ve made, the experiences I’ve had but the skills I’ve learnt. It is like learning to live again. The grief isn’t so hard to deal with after a while. Until today it hasn’t hit me how far me and my family have come 👩👩👦 I’m proud of myself. A feeling l I never thought I would have.
I know not everyday will be like this. Perhaps it was listening to show tunes when I got up. Perhaps it was all the cuddles my son gave me yesterday, or simply that my mother in law is taking me for cake 🤦♀️ but either way. I’m going to enjoy today.

Day 21 of 365 this was super late in the day and my body was already feeling tired not from working out but from just being up and about haha but only got to hit a solid 30 seconds. I wanted to skip my handstand because i knew it wasn’t going to be great but that means breaking my promise and self commitment. It doesn’t matter if I don’t get a better form or hold time today I still have almost a whole year left so look forward to the possibilities to come 😊 #staystrong
[Day 5 contd.] I struggle a lot with my self esteem nowadays. I don’t like showing it, but I felt great tonight — I got all dressed up. We were meeting friends from my mom’s side and I didn’t expect that this person would ask me a blunt ‘just kidding’ question. You see, everyone takes in things differently. There’s always some truth behind ‘just kidding’ or a blunt joke. Many people would be like, ahhhh they’re just kidding...you gotta have a sticks and stones mentality. It’s funny bc whatever you order at a restaurant is the person’s choice. Whether I decide a half portion is totally up to me. I was just asked the question of “you don’t want a full portion — are you on a diet or something?” I was only asked that question while a couple of people ordered half portions...I LOVE food and yes, I do feel fat. I don’t like myself in pictures sometimes. I do go to the gym but not as often as I would like, and no, I’m not on any diet but I am trying to eat healthy (which btw, many people see that I do and I’m like, I try to be 😆) I want to appreciate my body and myself overall. Tomorrow is gonna be a new day. I’m gonna do whatever it takes to make myself feel physically great and make some changes. I wanted to post how pretty I was this evening bc I haven’t felt like anyone has seen it lately...🙈#struggles #selfesteem #confidence #beauty #selfappreciation #learningtoselfappreciate
TEGEN WIE KIJK JIJ OP?
Het is interessant om te weten wie hij bewondert, omdat dit iets zegt over jouw ambities en wensen.
Als je opkijkt naar iemand die erg succesvol is in jouw ogen kan het zijn dat jij d zelfde stappen zet als deze persoon om ook daar te komen.
Dus je gaat modelleren, nadoen....zoals we van kleins af aan al leren, dus een logische manier.
Modeleren is denk ik erg handig in het begin, als je eenmaal op dreef bent komt op een natuurlijke wijze jouw eigen manier erdoor heen gesijpelt, omdat je nou eenmaal een ander persoon bent.
Je gebruikt jouw voorbeeld dus als inspiratie om jezelf te verrijken en te ontwikkelen.
Je kunt ook tegen iemand opkijken die eigenschappen heeft waar je zelf naar verlangt. Meestal heb je die wel in aanleg aanwezig (anders herken je ze niet) maar zijn ze nog niet ten volle ontwikkeld.
Dan is die persoon een herinnering hiervoor en kun je ermee aan de slag.
Sommige mensen hebben natuurlijk zoveel bereikt dat het een hele klus wordt dit te evenaren, denk aan moeder Theresa of Ghandi.
Deze grootheden hebben ontzettend veel mensen geïnspireerd om zelf een stap meer te zetten, een betere versie van zichzelf te worden en hun idealen toe te passen in hun eigen leven.
Ik denk dat we allemaal rolmodellen nodig hebben om van te leren, zolang je er maar je eigen sausje overheen gooit, om zo steeds meer zelf te verrijken en te groeien.
Dus: tegen wie kijk jij op?

Look who finally decided to show it’s face: FRIDAY! Couldn’t be happier, I’ve had a loooong week! 🙇🏼♀️ I’ve got some plans to chill and just spend quality time with the family... ok ok, and some Netflix too! 🙌🏼 What’s your plans for the weekend? 👇🏿👇🏿👇🏿
Old paradigm: 99.74884% of people try to sell you the dream. [ outward focus - still keeping you distracted from the sustainable solution - the foundation ]
I’m in the business of selling you on yourself. The dream is already done!! It’s already yours!! It’s your responsibility to come back home to your heart + show up to cultivate the ultimate healthy relationship with yourself so you can align with what’s already been done energetically.
You just have to give yourself permission to allow yourself to have it all.
You have the answers. I guide you back to yourself to access them.
Song that’s been stuck in my head and I hate to admit it: I love it. Anyways I’m super in love with my self and I’ve been trying to appreciate every inch of myself. From my small boobs to my thicker thighs, it’s been a tough journey. But I’m a strong believer in speaking things out into existence. On days when I look at myself in the mirror and wanna cry, I sit down and tell myself how beautiful I am. From the ruffled skin on the back of my thighs, the tiger marks on my legs, to the curves on my back. I will force myself to say “I love you” in the mirror until I feel it. Please, please, no matter how different you think your body is , learn to respect yourself and give it absolute and real love. Never seek validation and love from others when it comes to your own bodies, because the only person you’re going to full is yourself.

Self growth 🌱
You set these goals. You feel motivated but sometimes it lacks followings through
Don’t let yourself ever settle. Always push yourself for more always set yourself more goals. The next step, next chapter, next moment.
Commit to yourself to do better, to be the best dam human you can be, while ever changing & ever evolving. Never stopping always growing.
Everyone has set backs & lows when there reaching the wildest dreams & goals. Because you wanna be there now. Right now! Patience as Ryan always say to me... 🙄
No but it’s true PATIENCE
The other night he also said to me “Do you think the people you look up to just got there with no downs. They had low moments & that’s how they got there today. Because they kept pushing through &going” which just motivated me so much because it’s so true
Everyone needs to go listen to the @bizziegold
podcast because it’s really amazing. I can’t wait to see what they have to come. Happy listening 🎧
Anyone else not patient? Anyone have any tips? Comment below ⬇️

After dropping my dad off at the airport my sis @mariposita1225
and I hit up @champsdiner
(an all vegan diner style restaurant and it was pretty delicious for apps we had mozz sticks and carne asada fries which the seitan asada was on point with the seasonings 👌🏽 then I had pancakes slam with choco pancakes, tofu scramble, hash browns, soysausage, and seitan bacon. My sis had a tofu scramble mix with veggies shrooms, hash browns and some sort of ham (but it wasn’t ham idk 😂) Anyways this place wasssss good and craved my breakfast at night hunger xD and for desert was NY style cheesecake with blueberry topping and pecan crust at the bottom 😍
Always remember that.
You are not only enough. You are more than enough.
Pause for a moment and breathe that in.
Add a smile and feel the difference.
Love and light to you. 🌹💓🍀

“What does SheLift mean auntie?”
I tried explaining what SheLift does and stands for to my twin 6 year old nieces and I didn’t get much from them other than “Wow that’s soooo cool. These girls are so beautiful!”.... yeah, I think they get it 😏
6 months, my friends. 6 months that started with #intentionalslothing
a couple months prior in order to find my Happy Hopeful Place....knowing that answers would come once I settled into myself, found some self-appreciation, and trusted my body. 🙋🏻♀️ I felt inspired to start with a 10 cleanse, and then I collided with #Keto
. Other than tracking the first couple weeks and doing a few weigh-ins this summer, I’ve not given attention to numbers...they distract me from FEELING this process, from TRUSTING my body, and they generally torment me. 🙅🏻♀️I have no timeline and no goal...this sweet bod of mine is capable of letting me know where it wants to go, and cluing me in when we get there. This adventure has felt very like going on a vacay... enjoying the journey because I KNOW we’ll get to our destination. I plugged it into my emotional GPS, so I just sit back, enjoy the ride and munch the complimentary pork rinds. 🐷 The destination I programmed in? Happy and in love with myself and life. Basically where I started. 😁 Also? This is NOT what depriving myself, shaming myself, and working hard looks like. You’re welcome. .

You ever just wanted someone to just SHUT UP and listen to you. “Why are you crying?” , “What happened, You were just ok”. Just hush 🤫. Let them let it OUT. Don’t interrupt the purging. Hug them and console them instead. Give it some time then communicate if you have to. Sometimes a person can speak the loudest when they are the quietest. 🤐
This saying has gotten me through so many challenges and stuck spots.
How does it feel knowing that whatever you’re going through right now will change? Do you believe that or is it hard to accept?
I’ve been on both sides of that answer. And that’s why I teach what I teach now. Realizing that life is full of phases is my medicine. Click the link in my profile to learn more. ☝🏼
.:: I SAID YES ::.
Man: “Your ring has been re-sized and is ready for pickup.” Me: “ perfect- I appreciate your work! I’ll be there to pick it up tonight”
Three years ago I got the tattoo of this equilibrium symbol you see on my right forearm to represent my commitment to reaching wholeness; equilibrium with my feminine and masculine energies.
It’s been messy + fun + lots of crying + feeling anger/pain to transmute it into light/love + liberating AF + full of compassion + acceptance + perseverance.
I just renewed my vows + put a ring on it to symbolize this next level.
I am + will always be my top priority.
I will always bet on myself.
I am committed + married to myself and the divine above all else.
Always and forever.
Everyday I choose myself.
It’s vital to fulfill my dream of being an extraordinary wife + mother + daughter + leader + liberator + sister + other roles I choose to play in the game.
Women- we set the example + lead emotionally.
Are you courting yourself?
Are you getting intimate AF? Spiritually + emotionally + physically?
Become your own best friend + lover + sanctuary + security + protection .. I’ve never been more in love with myself + my business + playing in the fairytale/video game/playground called life.
A life partner is a cherry on top of your better-than-sex cake lifestyle you live out not an end-point or object.
The souls you dance with in connection are an outlet to express the wild, deep + infinite love you ALREADY are.
They get to take a hit of what it’s like to EXPERIENCE you + your energy- in whatever way that looks like.
You see, security isn’t found in another person.
It isn’t found in your career.
It isn’t found in ANYTHING outside of yourself.
A solid foundation to build + navigate + explore this dream/video game/fairytale is done from INSIDE.
Your inner world is what’s real. It is infinite. It’s what’s unconditional. It’s steadfast. It’s a sanctuary. It’s one with God/source.
Your birthday suit is a conduit. A channel.
Your partnership + relationships are a conduit- containers for God/source to refine our souls making a bigger expression to others through the union. [continue on blog]
Really am #blessed
to be where I am in life🙏🏼🙏🏼❤️❤️
Looking for a PERFECT partner??? ✅✅✅
But just can't find this perfection?🧐
Accept your own imperfections, then you will be more tolerant of the imperfections of others.
And the key to accepting own imperfections is self-acceptance.
Because lack of self-acceptance can go a long way toward eroding relationships since the negativity you harbour about yourself will surely bleed onto your partner/date. .
Negativity is like cancer that grows and spreads from one partner to the other, poisoning the entire relationship. .
At its extreme, low self-esteem can cause you to reject or sabotage love relationships, without you even realizing. Feelings of self-disdain and shame may run so deep that some people cannot allow anyone else to love them, no matter how much someone tries.
It's a) impossible for them to recognize authentic love, since they have no reference to which they can compare their experience to, or they b) reject their potential partner because they cannot imagine that anyone worth having would want them in return. .
It all starts with #selflove
I love that I can wake up every morning & feel comfortable & free & beautiful. I really hope that someday I could make a difference in many women & men’s life, to pass on this self love. I want to make my mark today by saying that it isn’t easy to wake up & be motivated for the day ahead of you. Trust me, for years it was never easy & it was never easy to say “I love you and your look” to myself. But since I have accepted that I am not supposed to look like anyone else, but me I am more than willing to encourage & inspire people who want some words of encouragement so they could be CONFIDENT in their own skin!!! So now it’s not just Help women empower women or Help men empower men! It’s HELP WOMEN & MEN EMPOWER WOMEN & MEN!!! #selflove #selfcare #selfrespect #love #respect #selfappreciation
I’ve seen a few accounts addressing this issue recently and now I’d like to talk about it too! @andreanornesfit @drclaudiatfelty @ownitbabe.
SWIPE FOR CANDID FOOD BLISS! ~
There are so many diet accounts or “healthy eating” pages at the moment promoting this idea of “his and hers” meals where the “her” meal - as far as I’ve seen - is always a lot smaller than the “his” or they break down a meal into which food groups women and men should have. ~
NEWS FLASH: females aren’t all “dainty” with small appetites; males aren’t all “bulky” with massive appetites. Some people are small, but some are taller. This “his/hers” promotes undereating and malnourishment for the majority of body types. If you are a 6”2 woman training for a boxing match, you won’t necessarily eat the same amount as a woman who is 5”2 training for a marathon or a man who is 6”6 and not training for anything! Not all men want endless protein and not all women want endless salad. Eat for your body, not how media says you should eat. ~
Thank you to @markalleybar
for taking two photos of me enjoying my burger. You think I eat dainty? No way! I looooove food and I love enjoying it (some days I struggle but hey that’s alright!). To all my female, male and non-binary gorgeousnesses, enjoy your food! Be messy. Be happy. Go back for more. Don’t be ashamed to nourish and love yourself.
PS: if you’re suffering or struggling, need advice or even just need a chat, my DM’s are open to all.
