If more people can be vulnerable about their struggle I think we would all stop assuming everyone has it so much easier than us. After almost 5 years, I still walk the daily tension of accepting yet holding myself accountable to making positive choices. The process of change is hard, but beautiful. I would hate to perpetuate the notion that the qualities you admire about someone come easy. Expose your process and inspire people with your effort and intentionality because that sh*t is sexy. * * * #change #transformation #vulnerable #shareyourstory #share #journey #accountability #positive #changeishard #sharethestruggle #inspire #inspiration #truth #love #real #honesty #buffalo #fit #weightloss #business #entrepreneur #adulting #selfemployed
👋🏼It’s been a minute since I’ve been on my Teacher Insta!👋🏼 ➡️ If I can “get real”... The start to this year has been HARD. We’re building a new team dynamic. I was thrown into leadership quickly. I have 25 students, and I’m struggling to balance the wide range of needs in my classroom. (& I’m getting married in 8 weeks!!) Change is good — but THIS MUCH change can be overwhelming!! 😰 ⁉️I drive home from work EVERY day thinking, “Am I enough for my team? Am I enough for my students? What about the student who needs a role model? What about the students who happily follow every instruction? Am I enough for my strugglers? My high-achievers? My kiddos in the middle? How can I teach new concepts, when there are so many needs in the room?” 😩 🤷🏻‍♀️DOUBT IS REAL, my teacher friends!! 🤷🏻‍♀️ ❤️ YOU ARE ENOUGH. You are exactly where you need to be. Your students need YOU. Your heart, your encouragement. Your patience. Your LOVE. ❤️ 💕 Find peace in the chaos — Find joy in the little things — Find people who remind you of your WHY and encourage you when the doubt gets to you!💕

Day 25 of @radicalbodylove #selfcareseptember - #growth * The actual prompt today is growth but I’m going off script instead. I’m a hot mess today. See that poofy face? The tear stain on my cheek? That’s #steroids and I hate them. On them for another #ankylosingspondylitis #flare because my #enbrel isn’t doing its thing any more. * So this is me being #vulnerable . This is me not being #strong right now. This is the me who just bawled after dropping a dust pan, the me who is in an anxiety whirlwind I can’t seem to get a grip on, the me who wants to cry over a cup of horchata and a pile of cookies and steak, the me who just desperately wants herself back. * Without the steroids my body was literally attacking itself, causing severe pain and stiffness, bouts of #uveitis and skin issues, GI problems. But with them I feel completely ungrounded and spiraling. * So this, how I am right now... Letting down my guard and not just trying to put a positive spin on things? Not trying to be SuperCrip with her cape of Optimism? I don’t know. Maybe saying “this sucks and right now I’m not okay” is a form of growth after all. * * * #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #invisibleillness #spoonie #sickqueer #disabledandcute #aswarrior #mecfs #cfs #fibromyalgia #fibro #migraine #sickfemmeglam #fatfemmefabulous #writeaboutit #tellyourtruth #rebelonpagewriting
“There is nothing more beautiful than seeing a person being themselves. Imagine going through your day being unapologetically you.” I love this quote and it is has always been my goal, and I only ever want this platform to reflect my true self, the products I love, style I crave, quotes and people that inspire me. I only ever hope this shines true.

Day 12: And so as this wondrous time at @optimumhealthinstitute comes to an end I find myself stripped to the core in the most beautiful way. Aware of every nuance, what I had pushed away and what has kept me from healing. In this great changing of the tide caught between loss and joy I find shards of the Tara I left behind long before this health opportunity came along. Tender little girl joyful playful self I am, hula hooping my cares away. Let the world go away and leave me with the beauty of this singular moment where all is perfect. Captured in the truth of a gaze, hold me in this light forevermore. . And that’s my entry for today. Read into it what you will.... There is Magick unfolding and I’m open to it all. Saying yes with every breath. 🍂🍃🍁 . . #magick #magickal #magic #image #images #face #vulnerable #unfolding #rebirth #rebirthing #faith #belief #cleansing #healing #healingjourney #optimumhealthinstitute #joy #dojoynow #joyful #discovery #art #beautiful #windhorsesanctuary #beautifulpicture #poem #poemsofinstagram #poetry #poetsofinstagram

🔥Fastest Transformation Ever🔥 ________________________________________ Just a friendly reminder that not everything on instagram is truthful. I’m ultra bloated right now, so the change looks even more dramatic than usual! 😂 Sometimes I see posts on Instagram claiming a transformation when it’s 100% just high waisted leggings versus not high waisted leggings. It makes me so sad to see stuff like that, and I just want to make the promise that I will never stop being 100% real on this page. I will post the unflattering photos. I will post no makeup and frizzy haired photos, because that’s what real life is and that’s what being vulnerable and authentic means. So here’s a #mondaymotivation for you. I know I look beautiful in both photos, but I didn’t lose a ton of weight between them and I also won’t try to pretend this was a 4 week difference. (More like 4 seconds) Love you all! Happy Monday! ________________________________________ #transformation #beforeandafter #weightloss #rawness #realness #vulnerable #authentic #thisisme #beautiful #brave #humble #strength #woman #monday #photooftheday #inspo #girl #fitgirl #workout #bbg #bbgcommunity #bbgbeginner #bbggirls #booty #abs #weightlossmotivation #followme #weightlossjourney #affectionatetribe
My name is Alyson. I’ve been so challenged and tested to say the least with life, my smile has been hard to engage and I’m a broken vessel that God continues to use despite my circumstances and situations! I have a sense of wholeness which can only be found in him and nothing in this world can compare to his amazing grace NOTHING - go figure hey, pretty amazing miracle working God alright! He promises to never leave us nor forsake us and he doesn’t ever! Even in my mess I choose to step out and trust his will because of this! He loves our imperfections and despite what my past says I am a new creation. He is a wonderful father always patient never abusive and loves beyond no measure! I pray you all receive a sense of peace today reading this as I know I am a miracle walking which has encouraged me to encourage you nothing is IMPOSSIBLE with him NOTHING when we surrender all to him! His word says in Jeremiah 29:11 says: (god says) For I know the plans I have for you, “says the Lord”. They are plans for GOOD and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. He loves me! And he loves you too! #truth #vulnerable #godismystrength #moving #growing #learning #trusting #future #hope #faith
This is why I speak from the heart... I've lost people without telling them how I really feel and that's a pain all in its own... #speakmymind #fromtheheart #showmeitsreal #vulnerable
Being entirely present and open. The most challenging but beautiful part of being an artist🕊
It’s been awhile since my week began with the wind being knocked out of me... Not once. Not twice. Three times. 🌱 Life doesn’t happen TO me. 🌱 Life happens. 🌱 Thankful for this timely reminder from a fave...Abraham Lincoln. 🌱 It’s gonna be a GREAT week.
Restoration: Survivors in this stage of recovery feel an attraction to new hobbies and ways to enrich their lives. This longing is wonderful and can serve as a catalyst for rich adventures. . Becoming the strongest version of myself: mentally, physically, and spiritually wasn’t by accident. I had to go thru the trenches and make the executive decision that my experiences wouldn’t define my future. . Came home completely exhausted to my 11 year old reading me the subpoena he found in the door. Not only did I have to explain what this meant, but also that I wasn’t in trouble. . As my boys get older, I’m finding myself sharing (per their maturity levels) to give them insight into a past that could of made our future look very different. . I hope one day they can look back, and see that their parents fought for the life they have as a unit. . God has prepped me for spiritual warfare, and now? We can finally close a chapter, while praying justice is served. . Finding an outlet to make myself stronger isn’t hard. Allowing my mind to become toxic in self pity? No, thanks. . This isn’t hard. This is therapy.

Tonight’s full moon 🌕 in Aries 🔥 followed by the Mars South Node conjunction on Wednesday is forcing us to finally let go of the old realities that no longer exist. (3-D beliefs/illusions) The stories you told yourself to help make sense of things are no longer valid - release them, we are creating a new future now. 👋 We bring 5D ( and way beyond) through us and we live it as it presents for us...as our hearts & minds are truly open and ready to embrace the new/perceived unknown through trust/faith/knowing/deep sacred inner connection...beyond the old limiting programs of our own old 3D consciousness. P.S falling more in love with my authentic self everyday as I work to deepen the connection with my soul. No makeup-sleepy messy hair & all 🤷‍♀️😴❤️
Me - “Feelings of loss and reflections of my past sometimes co-mingle in my mind... it can be overwhelming... dealing with this can be a struggle. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself”
We need to be vulnerable in order to have a real communication. Vulnerability it is not a weakness but a strength. #motivationalquotes #motivation #motivacion #motivationalspeaker #vulnerability #vulnerable #risk #connection #marriage #matrimonio #communication #matrimoniossanos

🚨Real Talk🚨 I’ve posted many of my successes over the last few months, but it’s unrealistic to believe that I do not fail. I fail often, that’s what it’s all about. Tonight I failed over and over again. I didn’t hit a good snatch. My body wasn’t feeling “good”. I couldn’t get under it. It just didn’t work. Although I was determined to PR today- I didn’t. Instead, I took all of the weight off. My coach and my friends helped me work on my technique for an entire hour. Right back down to basics. And next time- I’ll hit it. This is still a part (a big part) of progress and growth. 💪🏼 #honest #crossfit #failure #change #growth #somniumcrossfit #stillproud #vulnerable

Pushing around paint is like pushing myself out of my comfort zone! Not loving the colors or what’s showing up on the the canvas at this point! However, I remind myself it’s all about the process and it motivates me to keep going! I go through the same things my clients do and do the same exercises I suggest clients do as they work towards more mindfulness in their daily lives. Currently have availability for clients to book a 3 three session series to support a mindful transition from Summer to Fall! Please DM to book yours which can be virtual or in person!

Staying open completely to loves flow. When I was 21, I followed my boyfriend at the time to live with him interstate. He never asked me, I just did it. Because I loved him. I had no doubts, no fears, I just followed the impulse & flow of love. This man cracked me open in many ways, he was the catalyst for me getting on my soul path & to him I am forever grateful as one of my greatest teachers. So often I hear women say, “if he ain’t banging down your door write him off”, or “he must love you more than you love him?”. This is nonsense & all games of the mind & ego. Love does not consider any of this. When we get hurt as a result of expanding & being vulnerable - is when parts of us shut down & then these silly beliefs begin to form. Our ego gets off on these false beliefs. False beliefs. Don’t believe them. Tend to them, witness them, but do not believe them !! If you like someone, tell them. Travel to see them. Risk everything for love. For other, for self, for life. Let love dictate the flow. As I shared yesterday, the deepest pains are either going to take us one way or the other - to destroy us, or CREATE us! It is our choice. Taking time to tend to ones wounds is needed, but know when the time is necessary to step out from the inner dark back into the light. Working with my Womb, embodied Tantric Arts like the jade egg & conscious menstruation, has hands down brought me full circle & back to love again and again. My online course The Temple of the Womb 6 week journey has just come to completion - & I will be launching again on 11.11.18 🖤 this will be the last time I offer it before it evolves.

Binge Eating: I put up a video on my fb and youtube several months ago opening up about my eating disorder. That was one the hardest things I’ve EVER done. However, I know that as part of my recovery I need to share my struggles AND wins to stay accountable. I also suffer from chronic depression. Suffering from BOTH at the same time/paired together is AWFUL. 😢 When I’m at my worst I shame myself for eating, and I go to this really dark place. I want to break free from this FOR GOOD. Luckily I’m on my way to full recovery! 😬😇🙏🏻 What always seems to happen is I get on track, I come out of my depression fog and I do better with my nutrition and exercising and then somehow I fall back into that deep dark place that I NEVER want to be in. I’m hopeful though b/c I not only have the tools given to me with my nutritional cleansing system but more importantly I have THE SUPPORT AND ACCOUNTABILITY. This is everything! If you can relate and you need someone to talk to please reach out to me! It’s great to be in such a wonderful group with others on the same system as I am on, but most will not understand my eating disorder and they don’t know exactly what it’s like to live this way with THIS struggle almost every single day. It would be a great help to have partners in my group that really get it! 🤗😀 I’m here to help! We can get through this TOGETHER! If you made it this far into my post thank you so much for taking the time. ✝️ God bless and have a great day! #taittfitness #bingeeating #recovery #vulnerable #tellingmystory #nutritionalcleansingsystem #hope #wholenutrition #dontgoitalone #igotyougirl #wecanbeatthis #jesus #thelordneverfails #havefaith #bestrong #itsoktocry #yourenotalone
It is from the journey of my own darkness that I share, my life had been dark and grey filled with spots of soft and clear, the more I did my practice of observing my own behavior my own thoughts, my own words, have I come to a clarity of peace and love,  the night turned to day and the day to night.  Through looking at my own darkness, I have been chosen as a warrior of light, of healing of love, my pain my struggle was to rise for all of us, none of us are here alone and the path to connecting to source to God to the self. Living through my own darkness has given me the foundation to live from light and joy seeing my fears my false self beliefs taking all that arose and using it as a block in my foundation to rise. To be free! To be loved to love to feel comfortable and worthy. #grateful #love #observe #trainthemind #yogi #warrior #fityogi #heal #grow #flow #evolve #acceptance #willingness #surrender #followme #awakened #rising #darkness #light #unity #yoga #coach  #energy #breath #connection #loveyourself #inspired #vulnerable #alive
Welcome to the beginning, the hard stuff. The most lost I’ve ever felt. When I felt like I was in a shit storm, fearing I wouldn’t get out. As I begin to close this chapter in my life, I’m realizing how far I’ve come. How grateful I am. I no longer sleep the days away, I enjoy the sunlight again, I rediscovered myself, began to understand who I am. Without letting my past thoughts and choices hold me down. My views have changed, my outlook on life is so different. Moral values, to new beliefs. This is what the hard part looks like, the discouragement, the frustration, but the beginning of the progress. I am finally looking back, and am proud of that, grateful for the process. The change. It’s hard to say goodbye to such a positive space of growing, feeling safe, a wonderful chapter, and I will always hold this time I’ve spent here close to my heart. ——————————— Thank you, for being a part of my process, my progress. I am forever grateful. 🌻
✨Renacer como cada amanecer✨ * Intento desnudar mis ojos con la ingenuidad de la primera vez, dejándome sorprender sin prejuicios ni expectativas, permitiéndome atravesar lo desconocido con ansias e incertidumbre, con valentía y sin temor. Volviendo a la oscuridad para develarme en luz, interrumpiendo el bullicio en silencio, emergiendo en la profundidad del abismo, asfixiándome de aire nuevo, renaciendo✨💫🌅 * #RegistrosAkashicos #TarotEvolutivo #Encontrarse #Sentir #Espiritualidad #CrearConciencia #Iluminacion #Energia #TerapiasAlternativas #Frases #LaFraseDelDia #Reconexion #Luz #Sombras #Ingenuidad #Vulnerable #Renacer
Processes of change- setting yourself up for success- planning and all that jazz.... 🤷‍♀️ I'm a qualified PT. I have a degree in psychology. I've worked with enough people to know when you have a tonne of excuses and are half assing something. I have enough qualifications to know when someone is scared af to make changes and stick with them because they are uncomfortable and challenging. Oh wait that's me! Last week I lost 1.5kgs. That is freaking awesome but the way I did it... Who am I kidding. It is totally ok to say 'Man this is a big mountain to climb' and I need some help. I did that, got pretty honest and vulnerable and although I've procrastinated here I am. Day 1 of the shit that counts. I'm just a chick with some difficult habits built as a kid / teen that involve eating to relieve stress. With the help of Tara from @mcraefitness And some hard ass honesty with the mirror... I'm going to do this. Changing 37 years of habits (I know right!) won't happen overnight, and being the personal perfectionist I am, I need to learn to enjoy the process. Check back over my previous posts... I've been almost at this point for over a month. Committing to myself and just freaking doing it.... Very happy for you to come along for the ride - join me at McRae or just message me/ comment. I've half assed so far because it is freaking scary to change. I want to be different but it is SOOOOOOOO easy to find excuses... Just start Pieta.

Raw. Possibly the hardest post ive ever had to write. And the one that makes me the most nervous, vulnerable and fearful. But I figured by posting it, im not allowing it to hold me in a negative state of belief or give the person who sent this to me the power. Words hurt, words are impactful. They can build up but they can tear people down. Most of us know and understand that this kind of behaviour has no place in our society yet here it is. Staring me in the face after a really tough day. Hitting me while im down and making me feel just that little more insecure, that little less strong and that little less hopeful of people. This person who messaged me this has never met me, has seen a photo of me and we have had a conversation about eating/nutrition/dieting. A conversation where I strongly disagreed with their opinion. I explained this opinion was theirs and they were entitled to it but i did not agree. I then felt that this person wasnt someone I had a connection with and so I polietely ended things by wishing them well. This was 4 days ago and tonight I get this. Why do people feel like they have a right to comment on how somebody looks? I did not ask for this opinion and nor did i want it. I wont let this person taint my self image but I will learn from this horrible behaviour. We live delicate lives and these kinds of words can never be unspoken or taken back. I am worth more than what this person believes. Please dont let people like this devalue you or make you question your self worth. They thrive on peoples insecurities to make themselves feel better. Im just saying enough. Enough of the trolling. Enough of the cruel words. Enough body shaming. #imscaredtopost #tryingtobestrong #vulnerable #dontneedthatnegativity #enough #wordshurt
Sharing about a season of change that has been hard for me on my IGTV. If you’re a blogger or creative that makes money from your talent, you might be able to relate. I also talk about this woman, Hope, who e-mailed me and said “I just wanted to say thanks for brightening my disappointing day with your blog and recipes.” I got emotional, that right there is what this blog and journey is all about. #vulnerable #seekingjesus #liveauthentic #michiganblogger

The song we chose for today is not an easy listen. But it speaks so much truth because we live in a world where boys abound and men are in hiding. A real man fights his own desire and chooses to do the right thing. This isn’t always easy. Men are very carnal. It’s take a lot for a man to step out of his skin and actually make that call. Us women, we’re emotional first and carnal second. It makes it difficult to understand them and many times we don’t realize how much harder we make it by tempting them. Neither of us is right, but in this case the one who had more control stepped into his big boy shoes and did the right thing. He deemed her priceless.

Hey cuties 😍 . . Js, I think one of the hardest but most rewarding parts in life is vulnerability. We all crave human connections but literally CAN'T have them, real ones, without being vulnerable to that person. . . I challenge you to do something that makes you feel vulnerable within the next 24 hours. And please come back to me with results😊 . . . #theabbyway #abbbyscottt #traveldeeper #deepinyourmind #thoughts #vulnerable #vulnerability #openingup #open #openminded #happiness #love #selfesteem #confidence #nofear #justlove #challenge #expression #beyourself
“She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible. She walked with the universe on her shoulders and made it look like a pair of wings..” Id rather be someone who was broken than the person who broke someone.

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU FEEL LOW. Maaaan I have been feeling the intense energy lately! And for the past week I have honestly been pretty low; wiped out, low energy, have gone through a roller coaster of emotions, had all kinds of fears and worries come to the surface, and even got a little sick (which is rare for me). Maybe it’s the change of seasons or something in the stars. - I can’t say I have enjoyed this experience but I do see the value in it. Our lives will always always always consist of highs and lows, peaks and valleys, and I am learning to see the medicine in the challenging times and actually appreciate the gifts that low moments have to offer. For me, I think this low period was about showing me exactly what I don’t want, exactly how I don’t want to feel, what I don’t want to experience, or have in my life. Through this I was able to get more clear on old patterns, beliefs, and ways of being that I’m ready to let go of. And it also helped to remind me what I DO want, by showing me the exact opposite. The gift is clarity. The gift is that I am more clear on what I am ready to leave behind and what I want to move toward. - If you are experiencing a low period (or the next time you do) I invite you to: 1. Practice self compassion, treat yourself like you would a dear friend or a child, comfort, nurture, and take care of yourself. Always, but especially when you’re feeling low. 2. Know that you are never never never alone. We all feel the full range of emotions, we all experience highs and lows, we are all human and on this wild ride together. 3. Ask yourself; what is the medicine here? What gift does this low period offer? Is it an opportunity to slow down and go within? Is it telling you something needs to change? Are you going through a period of change or transition and your body needs more rest? Does it offer clarity, a message, or guidance? 4. Remember that life is working for you, not against you. Everything is always working out for the highest good. If you really believe that, it will be true! 5. Pick yourself back up. Be your own hero. And know you have the power to cultivate anything you want in your life! P.S. You’re doing amazing 😘
I bought @msrachelhollis ’s book earlier this year, maybe even before, and it sat on my bookshelf collecting dust. I bought it from seeing it on a girlfriend’s story, or maybe she had recommended it to me - I honestly can’t remember. SPEED UP to a month ago where I started following Rachel Hollis on all of her platforms - Instagram, Pinterest, website newsletter, ~the works~. Can I say she is GOALS!? Like, I don’t know there to get a copper leather jacket or dark mustard utility jacket to match hers!! When I start the book, I’m sure I’ll read to how she got to where she was, but that’s what I’m most looking forward too. Reading about an everyday person who started from the bottom now we’re here: reading her book, listening to her podcast to help others not only reach, but SEE their OWN potential (@letsrise.co with her hubby @mrdavehollis , who is equally as inspiring and motivating). To pregame the challenge, I WILL READ AND FINISH “Girl, Wash Your Face” on or before October 1st (first day the challenge starts). • • I saw a former client/friend doing the #last90dayschallenge that is guided by the Hollises. She then added me to an accountability group and my mind was stirring with little tidbits to make to track motivation & accountability. Anyone want in?? All you have to do is sign up for the challenge (google ‘Rachel Hollis Last 90 Days Challenge’). Thanks for adding me, @jules_cookie , hope it’s okay to add more folks 😬 • • I try so hard to motivate myself to jumpstart my life, get out there and find my potential...but it’s hard. Excuses pile up. Setbacks happen. Mental health struggle is real. As much as I want to, I can’t get better without constant help and support. I hope with joining this challenge and our little Facebook accountability group is just the kick in the butt I need to improve my health, mindset, and just everything. • • Yes, I used the RISE filter on this because that’s the name of their podcast. @theholliscompany , I’m available for remote work of any sort needed - full of puns and wit, silly dance moves non-negotiable, need cold brew coffee and midday nap breaks. Also, would relocate 🤷🏼‍♀️ • •

So this morning was one of those morning where you just want to lay in bed while your brought cotton candy and you decide to eat it in bed while browsing Instagram.... of course my youngest was crawling all over me! As young parents, we tend to think that we can never have a moment to ourselves. We always feel like the world is going to judge us. Sometimes you just have to throw your hands up and say “SO WHAT!” Give yourself a moment to breathe, relax, let the littles be little while you be you! I want every parent to give themselves a pat on the back today because the day is almost over and you survived! • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #vulnerablepost #vulnerabilityisstrength #vulnerable #parents #youngparents #journal #happyplace #youtube #youtubemom #lazymonday #mom #momlife #journaling #instaquote #writing #momsbelike #mothers
Bring it on!! I am so ready for genuine people and cultivating deep connections in my life! Calling in my tribe! 💖
Oh we are about to get real today. I was going to warm you up to Remotely Corporate but why not just dive right in. 🏊🏼‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not sure how ya’ll feel about packing peanuts but here at Remotely Corporate it is a no go. It can ruin almost any package w the mess. Even a package sent from France from a lovely Etsy artist that was so carefully packaged with the exception of these gaudy and messy peanuts can be a turnoff. . But I digress..⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today is Monday and full disclosure, I was in full on tears by 10 am. Not how I planned today to go during my Monday morning - let’s get organized and prep for success session - at all. At 830 am, I was able to conquer the world. By 10 am, I wanted to hide under the covers and watch Gossip Girl reruns all day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So y’all are getting the blog version today since my website isn’t up and running. 🙂 Today I hit a roadblock due to a past trauma. A trauma that caused me extreme pain due to someone else’s horrible choices. #metoo . I cried bc another perfectly planned day was ruined by this person and this trauma.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I decided to dust myself off and do something that would nourish me. A quick walk w my dog during lunch to get fresh air and clear my head was put on the schedule. #scheduleit I am still dusty and a bit bruised from my morning but you know what.. I managed a smile on my face watching the pup enjoy the walk and proud of myself for taking time to focus on my needs and happiness. It was the sunshine and beauty I needed in this yucko day, just like that that beautiful French artisan jewelry stand located at the bottom of all those ugly and annoying peanuts. Totally worth it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⭐️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anytime you find a glimmer of sunshine in a dreary day by choosing to take care of yourself first. Then consider it a win. 💗 Happy Monday! ⭐️

PT.II I think of a time when I was happier. Maybe happiness is a purpose. We so often take it for granted, only to be noticed by its absence. So many goodbyes. So heavy they weigh me down. Some can do this. They don’t set foot on ground, never making anywhere home. Maybe I should’ve learnt from them, realizing that the higher you fly, the less likely you are to hit the ground face first. Regretting the past is something I never want to do. Of course we dwell, but true regret can eat you up from the inside out. I don’t regret loving him, I don’t regret leaving. But it was just another goodbye piled up on top of the already exhausting load I carry with me. Only so many people I could hold onto through the weak wires of the web. Weak in humanity. When I was with you, it felt like I’d known you forever. Have you ever held someone and felt at home? Fell in love then realized you’ve already lived it? Something so easy it feels innate. I didn’t believe in past lives until I met you. A closed book with a transparent quality. Like seeing the trailer to a movie remake of a book you’ve already read. You know a version of it, but experience it anew, the feeling is innate but the story unknown. But the story isn’t over yet, it’s only just beginning. It’s a surprisingly small world we live in. I have faith in destiny. Until we meet again my love. . .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #igwriters #writersofinstagram #poetry #poetsofig #poetrygram #words #thoughts #writing #love #reading #instapoetry #truth #life #art #writer #poem #song #creativewriting #honestlyworded #writingcommunity #writinginpixels #poets_community #poemsporn #honest #vulnerable #thoughts #thoughtoftheday #pain #written #originalsong #original
PT.I It’s a finite amount of time. What do we want to do with it? I always thought there had to be a grand purpose to life, and that everyone was destined for something. Potentially greatness. But greatness is not given, neither is purpose, or even destiny. I do believe in destiny though, it’s a notion I hold on to even in the midst of chaos. The barbaric chaos of life, filled to infinity with forms of what we sometimes refer to as evil. But evil is not worthy of discussion. It’s a given part of human nature that any self-respecting adult has come to accept. We’ve also learnt that evil is different from misfortune, accident or the anarchic element of our existent. The one that makes it logically impossible for us to cohabitate in an overpopulated world where no two halves of the same pod can fully agree. So we do it anyway, because we’re human. We choose to organize our lives in a way that dulls the absurd wonder of our existence and place in the grander universe. Lost in the organization, the school, the nine to five, the repetitive pattern of a week gone by, we lose our purpose. Or at least I’ve lost mine. Living with a pain I’ve lost the ability to process. How can a life already so short, be lost between the four walls of an office floor? There’s no time to process, no time to mourn, no time to transition from one stage to the next. We make mistakes we don’t have time to learn from, we focus on flaws trapped underwater amplified by the lack of sound. Dull. . .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #igwriters #writersofinstagram #poetry #poetsofig #poetrygram #words #thoughts #writing #love #reading #instapoetry #truth #life #art #writer #poem #song #creativewriting #honestlyworded #writingcommunity #writinginpixels #poets_community #poemsporn #honest #vulnerable #thoughts #thoughtoftheday #pain #written #originalsong #original
. her soul may think it’s alone walking through that barricaded door no footsteps to be seen i guess this is just her dream . maybe she was the first to cross a leader, a pioneer, in other words a boss the path she chose is a lonely one to tread but wait for a second and lift your head ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ . if this world is not just the now see it as the continuum that screams so loud all she needs to do is look close other fading footsteps had walked through this door . yesterday, today and tomorrow are all the same an endless repetition stuck in space the same fight has been won before on a small scale perhaps, but here’s to more . more fighters will stumble upon this road make sure you leave a mark that will forever be heard one that won’t fade, no matter how hard they try for generations to come we’ll remember her cry . loud enough, and the resistance will be eternal don’t get me wrong, there will always be hurdles but if we lift each other we can jump high enough from a bird’s-eye, that hurdle is only a dot . . .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #igwriters #writersofinstagram #poetry #poetsofig #poetrygram #words #thoughts #writing #love #reading #instapoetry #truth #life #art #writer #poem #song #creativewriting #honestlyworded #writingcommunity #writinginpixels #poets_community #poemsporn #honest #vulnerable #thoughts #thoughtoftheday #pain #written #originalsong #original
