Mirror, Mirror on the wall...✨
What is the reflection you observe when courageously seeking a glimpse? Is it the surroundings, others or merely a distorted image of self? 🧐
Mirrors and or reflective surfaces are ubiquitous, whether we accept such or not!! In this image, I view myself holistically, a painting, a frame, light from the outdoors, a wall, aspects to a nearby plant and a reflection which contains more than my own being. However, every day is not as kind as this. Mirrors can be utilised detrimentally for one’s own internal ideals.
However, I implore you to perceive all that you magnificently embody next time you see yourself in the given reflection, as you are an original copy. There is no other as your beautiful self! Focus on your goodness! Embrace all that you embody and never look back! 💛
Happy Sunday loves! 🌻

I work and work, as an artist, with plants, natural dye, as an environmentalist, activist, mother, sister, share and care, collaborations the list goes on, never-ending, tired, I tried surfing with Elwin, in the beginning, I felt crazy wild, thought it was amazing to be in the ocean, did some serious nose diving, got the board a couple of times in my head, the last time I nearly fainted, dizzy went up on the beach just wanted to go to sleep. I kind of gave up, but persistent to come over that fear I went for a course and yes, today I am very happy, I came a bit further in my head spin and mental recovering.
I just love to be out there in the salty ocean, it teaches me love, warmth and awareness, and myself as a human, the vulnerability of life, the stingrays and so much of beyond. #ocean#savetheocean#health#water#surfforever#enviromentalist#blue#colour#soundoftheocean#waves#spinning#healthymind#perception
Once there was a #young#painter. He #painted his first #masterpiece and left it to be displayed on the #street#crossing along with a #note. The note read that “This is my #1stmasterpiece. If you find something incorrect, please put #cross at that place.” In the #evening, when he returned, the whole painting was filled with crosses. He was #disheartened and went crying to his master. His master suggested him to #create the same painting again and place it on the same crossing. This time the note read – “This is my 1st masterpiece. If you find something incorrect, please use the #brushes and paint kept by the side to correct it.” The next day when the painter returned, not a single correction was made. He learnt his lesson- It is easy to criticize but difficult to improve.
No matter what we do, how we live- Criticism will find its way to us. We will always be judged for our failures. Someone will always criticize us for what we didn’t do right. Be it at home, workplace or a social gathering. So, what should be our take? Should we continue painting or leave it for the fear of failure?
Foremost, remember “To err is human.” It’s okay to fail. Failure is as much a part of life as #success is. Unless you won’t fall down, getting up is #impossible. Those criticizing you have also failed at some point or the other. )The moment you hear criticism and start criticizing yourself, it’s like #self-sabotage. There is no escape. Never do that. Instead, operate from the space of self- #compassion. Know that there is scope to improve and you can do better next time. As you do this, you will no longer be #scared of criticism.
Don’t take the criticism on yourself. The #critic meant to #blame your act and not you. As you learn to differentiate between the two, you will be able to take #criticism more #constructively and less personally.
3)When does one #fail? When he tries to do something #new- Isn’t it? So, you failed because you jumped out of your #comfort#zone to try a new task. Not many dares to do that. Congratulate yourself. Growth starts where your comfort ends. .
People will always see you in different #lights. Each one will have their own #perception about you. #weekend

Personality Types Shape Attitudes Towards Body Weight of Others
An individual's personality is directly related to their beliefs about others' bodies and the ways those beliefs are expressed in social interactions.
Researchers reported personality traits have a significant bearing on a person's attitudes toward obesity, their implicit theories of weight and their willingness to engage in derisive fat talk or weight discrimination.
The research is in Personality and Individual Differences. (full access paywall)
⚠️⚠️⚠️‼️‼️‼️ Deep divers only.... one day you fall in love , then one day you fall out of it , you learn to hate it & trust no one , you become cold , but one day you just flourish , blossoming in colors .. you healed completely this empty void , that we spend most of our entire life running away from it , expecting for something outside of ourselves to fill it with constant stimulation... but one day you’ll realize how beautiful you truly are & how powerful and magnificent, your light radiates , you learn to love again & nurture your love of self .. you begin to trust again , but this time is quite different, your not looking for anything , you don’t fill empty , you don’t feel incomplete, your just flowing & growing & loving the person your becoming ... until you realize you’ve falling in love with yourself .... no one could ever take that away from you , perhaps maybe one day you’ll share that with someone special that means a lot to your soul ... but being free is what I live for, & if you aren’t willing to drown in these waters , I did say don’t even try to swim ... -My Love
