In Filipino culture, they don't believe in separation. I feel like I'm being looked down like I screwed up, I'm stupid because I met those guys. But it's not my fault. When I was in San Bernardino I did have my kids in a shelter, and I was going to get my transitional housing. But my step aunt that lived with us told my mom..she was tormenting her saying bad words in a different dialect that I couldn’t quite understand. She was putting my mom down saying "why you don't take the kids? You're stupid. You let them go to the shelter.” But I had to. With what happened with my exes, I couldn’t keep all of them with me, and I couldn’t just chose two of the four kids, as much as I wanted to have my kids around me. I couldn’t separate them. Why wasn’t my family proud of me when I left him. My ex. I felt like my family is looking at me a certain way, because I'm different from all of them. Because they have a family that's together. So I tried to work it out with my ex, but you can't work it out with a drug addict.
People like me end up with those guys, because I was attracting those things. And I didn't realize that I was attracting narcissists until recently. They come in all forms. My dad is a narcissist. They tend to isolate you from people. I remember that with my exes, and I realized it was the same pattern I had with my dad, where when you lose confidence and feel down, you attract those men. Mostly it's narcissists, and they try to financially bind you. They play those mind f*** games. My name is Marli Diz and I was born on August 20th.
#happybirthday to Marli and everyone else born on #august20 Tag #friends and #family born today!

I’m going to be totally honest for a moment. 👇👇 I’ve been struggling a little lately. Not even sure why or with what, maybe it’s winter, maybe it’s the universe, maybe that’s just life sometimes 🤷🏻♀️ but what I realized the last week is that if you dont feel good about you it’s hard to feel good about anything else. .
So I’ve been pushing through the daily stuff and really trying to take some time to look inward, treat my mind gently, nourish my body properly and feel my way through whatever this is. And I think a lot of it is tied into self belief and self worth. No matter how incredible life is, if you don’t believe in your power you’re only going to hold yourself back. .
So I guess this is just a reminder that every little ounce of you is enough. You are worthy, and your happiness is worth every step you have to take to find/keep it. So keep going ✌️
Yes it’s SUPER LATE and I coach at 5am tomorrow BUT ... I could not NOT sleep without sharing this before I shut my eyes to rest!!! 😆... Today was EXTRAORDINARY!

My heart is so incredibly full thinking about the joy I felt today witnessing these awesome human beings be the best they could be! Truly being so brave 💪🏻 even if they were thinking “Coach TLP is truly out of her mind!” 🤣 I absolutely love what I do and am so blessed and honored to build confidence in each of these special people!!!!! #YESYOUCAN#NEWtoysROCK#ThanksRudy#crushinggoals#outsideofyourcomfortzone#selfbelief#PROUD#justgettingstarted#EXTRAORDINARYFITNESS#YOUmatter#powerful#strong

I held a baby for the first time. Although I look like I was enjoying the experience, I can honestly say I was terrified.
I commit to myself 10-15 minute each day to meditate.
Rain or shine.
Meditation isn't there to help me to relax or relief stress and anxiety.
Meditation teaches me HOW to work best with stress and anxiety.
It teaches me to be present and live in the moment instead of dwelling in the past or worrying about the future.
It teaches me to be responsive rather than being reactive to circumstances.
A wise woman once told me, "Your true inner peace and happiness is when you accept everything and expect nothing in return." That's why I meditate.
“The woman you're becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces and material things. Choose her over everything.”
I’m not someone who believes in just ONE way. Except when it comes to choosing to believe in yourself. It’s the only way.
Stop at absolutely NOTHING, do everything you can, find the way, do the work, take the action - do whatever you have to do so that when it comes down to it, you keep believing.
Promote, demote, whatever the cost.
I know, I FEEL how inspiring, motivating & just simply amazing it feels (fuels us at times, it makes us get up again) when others believe in us.
BUT- without our own self belief it won’t ever be enough, we have to believe even more. 👇
Stop at nothing to dig down so deep and pull the belief out of you. You’re worth it. I hope you hear this, you (we!) deserve to do what it takes for ourselves.

TRUST ✨A health journey is no easy feat. It involves success yet it also often involves failure. No journey is linear. And that is ok! Good things take time. Trust yourself. Show faith in your abilities. Have hope in your potential. You can do and be anything you want in this world. Happiest Wednesday friends! 🌸

Leading a happy life filled with positivity going forward after a dump of the heart must be thought out carefully and strategized so it will happen. You may feel at times you have lost so much or so much has been taken from you but your dignity is yours. Yours to keep, lose or give away in a moment of foolishness.
I shared this on my IG Stories just now but question for y’all! ❓Does your family know about your Instagram account? I’m fine with my friends knowing about it (now, anyway!) but it hasn’t been widely known in my family. Until now I guess? 😬 I learned that my extended family knows about this account and a part of me feels so nervous about that. I know in time I will be ok with it, it’s just another part of my personal growth in learning to be open with my family. They may think this is dumb or might not understand it, but if they’re not on board with the @justdimpleit train then we’re taking off without them 🚂👋🏽😂
🛑 THIS is worth the PAUSE... ✋🏻
(And I’m gonna try not to cry 😭)
You think your DEMONS are dark... You THINK there is NO POSSIBLE WAY... You feel HOPELESS and out of options...

Have you ever wondered what Neuro-Linguistics kinesiology actually is
Well it is a type of kinesiology, where it aims to include aspects that are commonly used by a kinesiologist, it also combines the use of Neuro-Linguitics programming.
When breaking it down Neuro basically means the nervous system, through which our experiences are processed through the five senses.
Linguistics is the language and the non-verbal communication systems which our neural representations are coded, ordered and given meaning
Kinesiology is a method of restoring the natural energies in your body, through the use of touch. It is a tool that can be used for maintaining health and reducing stress in your life.
It can also be used to indicate where there is a stress in body related to a specific issue. The tool in which I use to find the stress is called muscle testing. (I will explain this in more depth in a few days)
Through using NLK the aim is to empower my clients to become aware of the changes they want to make in a way this is measurable and specific.
One of the reasons why I love it so much is that I have seen the benefits of using in my own life and in my children’s lives.
If you are interested in trying it out I have some spots available in September to work one on one with new clients, this can either be in person or online.
I will be releasing some new packages over the next two weeks, so if you want to be the first to grab a spot. I would get in quickly as they are limited to only a few spaces.
Its just reality. Some may say it sucks, some say they hate it, but that how its has to be.
Nothing in life is ever given to you, you have to go out and get it for yourself.

If I had to choose one word that’s could be permanently erased from our brains... this would be it. We can do anything we put our minds too 💪🏽🙌🏾🧠, BUT! You gotta have the right mindset
Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right. - Confucius
Watching this video reminds me of how proud I am that I got out of bed just 30 minutes early so I could make a better ME.
A happier, healthier, more patient me. A better mom, better wife, better friend. All by taking 30 minutes out of my day and devoting them to ... you guessed it, ME 😁
Together, we are stronger! The motivation, accountability and inspiration that I have received from Challenge Groups over the last 3 years has been what's kept me in check. No doubt about it, if it wasn't for my daily dose of accountability, I probably would have quit a long time ago ...plus ... they're fun ... join us ...😉

I got a lovely email this week that made me look back at the start of my illness with the eyes and heart of who I am now
My disease kicked off in 2009 with a UTI that turned into incredibly painful interstitial cystitis (which is just a term for a collection of symptoms btw, they just label it as IC as they don’t understand the deeper roots)
Having constant pain in the bladder is tough to even explain. In traditional chinese medicine, the kidney and bladder hold our fear and grief, which is so interesting as my underlying default running mode was absolutely fear - and is it in most IC patients I have the pleasure of working with as they heal
I ended up with a practitioner that fed this fear. Amazing how we attract the perfect mirrors huh. Her way was the only way. I was a very tough case she said. Anything else I tried would make me more sick etc. Fear upon fear upon fear = total codependence. I lost my shit slightly in that time and disconnected further from my body
But what a beautiful teacher she was to show myself how little I trusted myself, how little I actually inhabited my body; to have allowed her to tell me what my body and I were capable of. I see now she was the mirror for my own fear. She was an invitation into my own healing. For that I now thank her. I mean that. I went through the wanting to run her over and reverse stage, so I haven’t bypassed. But now - I am grateful
This week I got an email from another former patient of this specialist, who also presented with severe bladder pain. She also subsequently found out she had Lyme like I did. And she has now been entirely healed for years
What made me smile so much was her honesty about her do or die moment, where she started to erase that deep fear imprint of sickness and trauma. She said “Thank goodness I got wise and just healed myself. I listened to my body. It really wanted to be well…….My own belief that I could get well. It was tough but I did it”
What her and I have done to heal is so different! And no less valid for that. At the core of both of our paths is the belief, the tuning IN to our body and trust and tuning out of all that doesn’t support that
I mean... think about all the amazing things Walt Disney created! I actually watched a documentary on him & how he began not that long ago and found it very inspiring. He wasn’t always perfect or his life magical, but he had a vision, he had courage and he made things happen. #dotheimpossible#havefundoingit
Had a thought ..... Isn’t funny how we just pick a person and decide that’s our person
And then this stranger becomes family and we decide and choose to live life with them ............ Thinking back with people who could of been and how different life would be by that one choice to stay and not end it
Anyone else fascinated by this 🤣🤯🙄

You can't expect anyone to believe in you, unless you believe in yourself. Today I woke up and felt a spark deep down within me. Looked in the mirror and seen how far I've come! Since April the 2nd and being a bit of a chunk, I'm now over 3 stone lighter! 42 inch chest down to 37. 39 inch waist down to 32! 7 inches gone which I thought I'd never achieve! Still a work in progress but damn I've achieved another goal I've set this year! 2 down so far, 3 to go! Now on to the 30! All started from an emotional rollercoaster and getting back from a very dark place to now, the old me shining through new and improved! You should never go backwards! Always stick with what's good for you and keep moving forwards! The past is in the past, work hard in the present and let your future be a very happy one! #page229of365#happy#newme#weightloss#lifesajourney#goals#improvingmyself#selfconfidance#believe#selfbelief#august18th2018
You are the co created of your own life. Your thoughts create your own reality, your actions aid in manifesting your desires in the physical world. Think big, connect with your true self and create an exceptional life. @thepeoplesmantra
