I’ve been debating on making this post or not for some time. Over the last few months I’ve had a lot of people mssg. me and tell me their perception of who I am. And I’m sure there are still a few of you on this app that think I’m this person in your head. And for a long time I felt very restricted on sharing who I am on here. Afraid I’ll let you down, afraid I won’t live up to your expectations of who you think I am. The version of me YOU created. But I’m not afraid. I love who I am, the woman I’ve become, all the good choices I’ve made in my life and I LOVE YOU GUYS. And that’s why I want to start fresh and introduce myself and give you the decision to keep following me. The real me. Not the virtual one you may of made up. My name is Alexzandra Elizabeth Peters I’m 28 years old I live in the back country of Maine, on a mountain where my fiancé and I grow our own crops, raise our meat that we consume in the winter months. Eric also hunts for our meat for the winter— to provide for us so we can continue to eat organically and clean – yes, I’m still very much a kind, compassionate, and loving human because I eat meat and my fiancé hunts. I am not vegan. I am not vegetarian (although I’m working towards going there, but I love seafood way too much at the moment). Also, I don't eat red meat and I've cut wayyyy back on eating chicken and duck. I also stopped eating venison 2 years ago. I drink. I drink water, kombucha, juice, soy and almond milk, wine, beer, and whisky. Once in a while I get hangovers. I’ve got one hell of a shot on a compound bow as well as guns. I grew up shooting guns with my father, I continue to shoot guns in our back yard with my Marine Vet Fiancé. I own my own gun. I’m confident in protecting myself if anything should happen. – and that’s a great feeling (although I’m better shooting bows then guns). I love to go fishing (catch and release) unless we hook a big salmon, grouper or tuna.. then we make tacos and the rest goes in the freezer for winter dinners 😊 I don’t have it all together, but I’m trying.

As I walked “Life is Beautiful” festival and I focus and bring my self present to everything... colors, sounds, people... I look up and am reminded that all of us are where we are supposed to be!

Never underestimate the power of the spoken word. It is not enough to think it, it is not enough to feel it, it is not enough to believe it, SAY IT! Tell your children over and over again; “Your life is worth defending!” Say it until they know it. Say it until they feel it. Say it until they believe it! - - - - - - - #endbullying #learntoprotectyourself #selfdefence #iamnotavictim #standupforyourself #awkentheprotectRwithin #stoptheviolence #stopbullying #yeg #urbancombatspecialistgroup #gregleboeuf
Today I started the 5-day #limitlesschallenge with @stacytuschl. 😳‼️.

It feel right in line with the FB lives series I’m doing. - You become what you think you are! It IS that simple.

I used to be afraid of everything...the dark, loud noises, being alone, scary movies, people... you name it. I was always fearful of being rejected by others. . I grew up being made fun of...not because I was ugly, but because I was rather odd. I’d say things that didn’t quite make sense or make jokes that only I laughed at. I only did those things because I was extremely nervous. My biggest worry was always “will they like me?” This attitude affected my youth and a majority of my adulthood. . A few years ago, God revealed to me that I had both a spirit of fear and rejection. I grew up feeling neglected and abandoned. I was raised by a single mother that was hardly ever home. My dad had left at an early age. Therefore, my goal was to please others so they wouldn’t walk out on me. . 2 Timothy 1:7 states, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” NKJV . These were spirits that I had to renounce and cast out before I could try move on in life. I thank God for my freedom. I am no longer bound to the opinions of others. I am still kinda scared of the dark, and I absolutely refuse to watch any horror movies. But guess what...I’m free! 🧡

S W E E T D R E A M S // my little Fox. Thank you to everyone who took the time to comment on my last post and read my new blog. It isn't something I would normally post but events since I did have confirmed that it was time to let go. Holding on to some things is just too damaging in the long run. So onwards and upwards, three more sleeps until I marry the love of my life. Ps. Never let anyone call you a bully simply because you are standing up for yourself. Women supporting women is one thing but doing it to your own detriment is quite another.
I’m rebuilding my brand for 2019 and I’m standing up for all the things I stand for! #mondaymotivation #standupforyourself #bussinessisbussiness

It’s fall- time to turn over a new leaf! Start negotiating for yourself. You know what you’re worth. Don’t settle for less.
We all need lines in the sand. These are non-negotiables, where if the line is crossed we must take action in order to protect our beliefs. Don’t allow habitual line crossers to remain in your life IF you have approached them and explained your boundaries and how they crossed them... only to have them cross the line again. There is no respect in those types of relationships and respect is needed in all healthy bonds. What are your lines in the sand? How do you cope with situations where lines have been crossed? -OOS #linesinthesand #opopensky #leadershiptip #mentordaily #lifehacks #standupforyourself #leader #mentor #businesstips #startupgrind #leadership

Stand up for yourself.
Why be racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic when you could just be quite..? Be kind to people. Respect each other.. At least don't be a judgemental person.. ❤️ u @laurenjauregui #laurenjauregui #queen #feminist #standupforyourself #selfcare #selflove #care #respect #bekind ##legend #singer #artist #musician #l4l #f4f #likeforlikes #likeforfollow #like4likes #follow #follow4followback #lgbt #humanright #trans #followforfollowback #insta #instagram #instago #instagood #instamusic

Have you ever heard the saying.... “What others think of me is none of my business” Seriously? That is easier said than done hey... From as long as I remember I have always wanted to be liked and loved by everyone... whether it was family, friends, people at school, work colleagues, and new people you meet. I was THAT person who did things (well ok.... I do still do them) to please others all so they would like me.... as you can imagine some of those things I did, may not have been too smart or in my best interest. All just to impress people or get someone to like me... Of course when we’re younger, we don’t realise that some of these decisions could come back to haunt us and impact us in the future. As I found out the hard way overtime... some people used to take advantage of me.. And because I always worried about what people thought of me, worrying that they were secretly judging me and what I did.... I missed out on doing some pretty awesome things, or just simply being me.. No matter how hard I tried I couldn’t stop worrying about what others thought about me... How I looked... How I spoke... If I laughed too loud.. If I acted too silly.. If I swore too much.. That I wasn’t smart enough.. I wasn’t pretty enough, cool enough... I was actually afraid to speak at times.. to say what I thought or to voice my opinion in the fear that I’d be told to shut up or that’s rubbish.... Often decisions I made while trying to keep people happy, ended up with me questioning my life.. because some of these decisions went against what I believed in. Overtime... I have started to care less about what others think of me & my actions... well it’s still a work in progress. I often catch myself caring what they think... only to realise... NO Karen.. be yourself. Stuff what others think! I’ve started to realise & understand that no matter how hard you try... you just can’t please everyone, & not everyone is going to like you. So go out and be YOU! #beyourself #loveyourself #dontfearbeingyourself #embraceyourself #lovelife #betruetoyourself #love #beyou #beallthatyouare #beproudtobeyou #standupforyourself #nofear

I am super excited to announce the upcoming launch of my new STAND STRONG AGAINST BULLYING MOVEMENT! In my 10 years of teaching kids I have spoken to thousands of kids affected by bullying to find out what works, what doesn’t work. And what you can do to help your child through this difficult time. I have created a private Facebook group “Stand Strong Against Bullying”. This will provide a support system for kids & parents to help identify and handle bullying correctly. JOIN THE GROUP! JOIN THE MOVEMENT! Let’s overcome bullying together! Stand Strong! Also follow the Instagram page @stand_strong_against_bullying #standupforyourself #martialartsperth #saynotobullying #antibullying #jointhemovement

Dear Stranger, stop telling me to smile. If i wanted to smile, i would be. Thank you!
Does what you do make you happy? Do you believe you should value negative comments above your own happiness? Then, maybe you should spend your time on those that value you & your work instead of wasting your time on the negative. Everyone has opinions, some of them just come from people so unhappy with themselves and their lives, that they reflect that on you instead of fixing whatever is messed up with themselves. It took me too long to understand that, but, thankfully I finally do. Roll with the punches and shake it off instead of letting anyone upset your life. This is your life & if you enjoy what you do & know you’re making a positive impact, rock on, lady (or dude)!! If this resonated with you, please share #repost so everyone else can move forward with an amazing week too! 💕🧡 #dowhatmakesyouhappy #howtobeabawse #sundaythoughts #happysunday #sharingiscaring #ichooshappiness #happinessis #standupforyourself #quotetoliveby #sundayquotes #quoteoftheday #quotesdaily #nurselife #5adaychallenge #healthyliving #healthyrecipes #mealprep #weeklyprep #takecareofyourself

My mom cussed somebody out for being aggressive and mean to her. I’m literally quite proud!!!

I väntan på samtal från kuratorn får jag själv försöka skilja på vad som är ”bara” känsla och vad som är panikångest... Har precis tittat på Wind River med @renner4real Filmen menar inte att peta där. Tror jag. Men det gör den. Jag gråter. För jag slås med enorm kraft av tanken av att jag tillhör det svagare könet. Det genomsyrar subtilt hela filmen. Att mitt ord väger mindre. Att jag är lite mindre värd. Att jag behöver kämpa långt mycket mer för att nå samma mål. Att jag har något att bevisa. Av det simpla faktum att jag föddes till kvinna. Det finns inga Oxascand i världen som kan kväva den ångest som den insikten bär med sig! Kalla mig naiv men det skulle tydligen behövas 36 år på planeten , en krasch in i väggen och en film från Hollywood för att jag skulle kunna ta in det till fullo. #windriver #jeremyrenner #nativeamerican #womensrights #equality #fight #nomorefuckstogive #female #womanhood #standupforyourself #insight #jämnlikhet #stoppminkropp #likalönförlikaarbete #mywordisworthasmuchasyours #stop #sad #enough #eftertanke
Know your worth. Most people don’t realize how worthy they are, but trust and believe that you are powerful and don’t need to take shit from anyone. #standupforyourself #beaboss #patience #dontconfuseit
I haven’t been making videos lately cause I told y’all I would hold off till I had the “proper “ space for it. But I felt like a lot of you guys needed to hear this and see this. Ladies, loving yourself is the only thing you need to focus on right now!!!! Fat and small. Skinny and thick. Rolls or bones!!!! It don’t matter. Stop letting these dudes get you hype with back handed compliments. If I work out it’s for me. I did my surgery for me. Empower yourself and realize only a broke , small minded boy is gonna tell you you need to change. Do it for you not for him. If you like your rolls , keep them sis. All that matters is your healthy and happy. Idc it y’all see me breath out, or see my scars or see me not looking “perfect” I’m not no dam bad and bougie model. I’m an advocate for y’all! Depressed and all. Fat and all. Thick and all. Whatever stage of my life I get too I’m always going to be me!!!! Stand up for yourself. Talk ya shit !!! And yes my New York side of me came out hella hard in this cause like someone said “girls from New York are just boys with titties” cause we don’t play no bullshit rt!!! #vsgcommunity #gastricsleeve #gastricsleevesurgery #rosacea #loveyourself #standupforyourself #imfat #thick #weightloss #vsg #tattoos #ownit #ismellgood #thickywiththeblicky #mentalhealth #growing
Un anno fa a quest’ora sognavo tutto questo. Guardavo fuori dalla finestra della mia camera d’ospedale e immaginavo di camminare per le strade di questo parco. Mi dicevo: vedrai, tornerai a farlo presto. È stato un periodo davvero duro, di quelli in cui pensi di non farcela. E invece ce la fai, eccome se ce la fai. Vivendo intensamente, con coraggio e con amore. E come diceva mia zia: Annaluisa,sei tutta gambe. #benvenutoautunno
PLEASE READ!!! You know what’s worse than this exercise? The drunk man sitting next to me Friday night. Disgusting drunk man, I’m very disappointed at the bartenders who didn’t cut him off. He wouldn’t leave me alone, he touched me, he smelled me and he kept on making comments. I guess it’s time for me to start being rude, which I don’t like to be because I hate rude people in public. But I’m so tired of it, it doesn’t matter if I’m at the restaurant or at the store.🤦🏻‍♀️ I just don’t understand why they think it’s okay. 😒 #getalife #standupforyourself #metoo #dontbeashamed #womensrights #strongertogether #strongwomen #manmakers #pushups #shoulderpress #hiit #hiitworkout #duespaid #1stphorm #iam1stphorm

The more chances you give someone the less respect they’ll start to have for you. They’ll begin to ignore the standards that you’ve set because they’ll know another chance will always be given. They are not afraid to lose you because they know no matter what you won’t walk away. They get comfortable with depending on your forgiveness. Never let a person get comfortable disrespecting you. #standupforyourself #setboundaries #respect #love #integrity #boundaries #personaldevelopment #limits #nobullies #kindness #accountability #responsibility
KINDNESS ❤️ If you have enough food to eat, you have more than many, if you have a roof over your head, you have more than many, if you have clothes to wear, a car to drive, a Yoga practice, someone who shows you love, you have more than many. . . Thanks to my beautiful Sunday Yogis I love seeing each and every one of you helping yourself to achieve better physical and mental health on the mat! We have just donated another £500 to our local grass roots homeless charity the Medway street angels! How beautiful to be able to take an hour to connect in to your self, cultivate love and kindness for yourself and all others, all whilst your class payment goes to people who have less than us! Thank you all for your kindness, know that you are all beautiful inside and out!❤️🙏🏻 . . If you are a tax avoiding billionaire, CEO of a mega corporation, part of the banking cartel families, one of the many celebrities using tax loopholes or the Queen of course who preaches to the people about austerity, whilst wearing stolen diamonds with off shore bank accounts when 14 million people live below the poverty line in the U.K and 300,000 are homeless. Know that you’re a fucking soulless excuse of a human being! Clearly I’m still working on cultivating kindness for people who exploit humanity! I’m pretty sure I paid more tax than Starbucks last year so It’s a work in progress! . . Yoga is constantly helping me to become a better person, am I always what I aspire to be? definitely not! Yoga is a practice of course, it makes me more compassionate but it will not ever make me passive, spirituality is not a excuse to step out of the world in to denial of our current reality, it’s a calling to step up in the world. Karma means action. #Yoga #changeyourreality
Sometimes, it’s just one of those days when you need a little self-love or TLC. This past week, I had one of those days. Have you ever given yourself a big hug?! If so, why not?! It is such a great feeling to fully embrace yourself and feel cozy and connected to your body. I do this from time to time and it automatically makes me more calm and at ease. So the next time you feel anxious or like you need some TLC, try giving yourself a hug! 🤗 It works wonders. . . . Another reason I do this is because I love hugs so if I didn’t sometimes hug myself, I’d be hugging every other person I see.. and for a loong squeeze 😂 . . . TAG the BEST HUGGER you know! #besthugs #selflove #embraceyourself
Be strong and proud. The people that won't mind are the ones that love you unconditionally. #womenpower #biggirlrevolution #standupforyourself #believeinyourself #staytruetoyourself #wontbackdown
