Sometimes we get into this situation where it feels like a balancing act between you and others. So I hope somehow this helps you today.

If you are struggling with this, first I want to say congratulations! I'm proud of you taking steps toward self care. I know what you are going through. I was there too when I stopped drinking. The fact is that we live in a drinking culture and most activities involve drinking, especially if you live in a big city like I do. Here are five things you can do now to start kicking the habit.
1)Try to avoid doing night time activities as they always involve drinking.
2) It will also be necessary to get rid of your old drinking friends. Not all, just the worst ones.
3) If you do end up at a bar or drinking place just order a seltzer and lime. You'll feel less left out and people wont really know it's water lol.
Now you'll need to find things to replace the habit with.
4) Find daytime activities that appeal to you.
Yoga classes, meditation groups, and classes at a college are all safe. If you spend time in a school or college, you're likely to make friends with non drinkers. Especially if they are older. Go see a play, a musical, or even an opera.
5) Be mindful of who you emulate or follow on social media. Choose people that influence you to stay sober.
These are just a few things but there are a LOT more, just stick with it and you'll be ok. Remember the health benefits and that the pros outweigh the cons. Your body and mind will thank you later in life 😊
Today don't forget to prioritise what's important. YOU.
Take some time out today even if it's just 10 15 minutes and do something for you that's going to help you to fill your cup so that you can be the best version of you and you have more to give to others as well as yourself.

🌹You are the Placebo by Dr. Joe Dispenza
“Your thoughts and feelings come from your past memories. If you think and feel a certain way you begin to create an attitude. An attitude is a cycle of short-term thoughts and feelings experienced over and over again. Attitudes are shortened states of being. If you string a series of attitudes together, you create a belief. Beliefs are more elongated states of being and tend to become subconscious. When you add beliefs together, you create a perception. Your perceptions have everything to do with the choices you make, the behaviors you exhibit, the relationships you choose and the realities you create.
So the only way to change your beliefs and perceptions in order to create a placebo response, is to change your state of being. You have to finally see your old, limited beliefs for what they are - records of the past - and be willing to let go of them so that you can embrace new beliefs about yourself that will help you create a new future. Just changing your beliefs and perceptions once isn’t enough. You have to reinforce that change over and over.” - Joe Dispenza
I started to feel the overwhelm kick in yesterday. It could've had something to do with going out the night before 🤔😂, but when i was doing some work in the evening, the sheer amount I need to do in order to reach certain goals seemed like the most impossible task. Those familiar thoughts about giving up crept in. "Do I even want it that much?" Kept running through my mind.
Instead of allowing those thoughts to take over and sink in, I decided to lean into some personal development. Cue #getoveryourdamnself by @romineustadt 💜 And wow.......2 hours later i actually felt better. I felt refreshed and focused. It made me realise how in the past, I've allowed my thoughts to dictate my actions. I've given up on so many things before. Projects, jobs, auditions, learning languages, playing an instrument..... the list goes on. I'd let my brain tell me that it wasn't worth the effort. That I didnt need that skill anyway. But it IS possible to retrain our brains and tell ourselves a different story. Our brains are so incredible. We can literally re wire how we think, how we behave, how we react. That is INSANE. Yet so many of us don't utilise this amazing gift. Well, I'm thankful that I know how to now. It's NEVER too late to learn and change, but it IS too late to wait!
It's not just my business that will benefit from me working on myself. It will benefit everyone I love and connect with. That's a wonderful notion on this sunny Sunday.
So today, I have taken time to meditate to calm my busy brain, listened to a few chapters of this epic book and am off to work with some lovely families over brunch. What A perfect day 🙏💘
I stumbled on some mental illness statistics and thought I should share:
1. In the United States, almost half of adults (46.4%) will experience a mental illness during their lifetime
2. Approximately 1.1 BILLION PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.. struggle with some sort of mental health or substance disorder
3. You are so dang far from alone ..how can it be that nearly half the population struggles with some sort of mental health issue but it is the mostly lonely illness out there.
More shocking statistics: 9.4 of the USA population has diabetes (yet almost all of us know multiple people with diabetes because it’s “normal” to talk about it) ...
I couldn’t find an illness or disease with a higher prevalence than mental health yet before opening up about my struggles with anxiety and having people open up to me I couldn’t name more than 1 person I knew who had struggled.... It’s okay to speak up, it’s okay to struggle, it’s okay to beat to a different drum than the rest of the world (or should I say the other half). The more I’ve open up to those around me, the more I’ve heard “I struggle with that too”. Today, share your story. Be proud of what makes you the strong brave warrior you are. You are fighting a battle that no one can see but boy is it a tough one 💚
I've made a ton of mistakes in the process of getting what I want in life. I don't let potential mistakes stop me from taking action, because I know they're a natural part of the learning process - a natural part of doing anything new.
I typically take action on things before I feel "ready" to do them. It's one of the reasons why I've done so many things. I wasn't "ready" to start my business. I wasn't "ready" to publish my own book. I wasn't "ready" to start posting videos. I wasn't "ready" to do my first public speaking event. I just did them. And I made mistakes. And it was okay. It was completely normal and will continue to be normal as I pursue more things in life.
If you're letting the fear of making a mistake stop you from doing something, know that when you make a mistake and you look back on it, you will think it's silly that you were ever afraid. Why? Because you will see that what you learned from that mistake was actually crucial to your success. It was a necessary part of the process 🙏

Oggi vi auguro una felice Domenica regalandovi la lettura di una meravigliosa poesia che riesce a significate CIÒ che io intendo per #Counseling "Se un giorno avrai voglia di piangere"
Se un giorno avrai voglia di piangere chiamami:
non prometto di farti ridere ma potrò piangere con te…
Se un giorno riuscirai a fuggire,
non esitare a chiamarmi:
non prometto di chiederti di rimanere,
ma potrò fuggire con te…
Se un giorno non avrai voglia di parlare con nessuno,
chiamami: staremo in silenzio…
Ma se un giorno mi chiamerai e non risponderò,
vieni correndo da me:
perché di certo avrò bisogno di te!.
Gabriel García Márquez
...Perché tutti abbiamo bisogno degli altri e anche il counselor ascoltando, riempe la sua vita di nuovi significati e mondi meravigliosi...Grazie a tutti @temporarywork#counseling , #counselor#selfhelp#selfefficacy

Delicious falafel wrap with humus, red onion and tomato relish and rocket 🚀 from @tadahoutbay
I'm the worst for loving myself but I do recognise the correlation between if you are happy then the people around you will be happy, it's a tough balance but one you cant afford to get wrong.
I'm all up for fresh starts and picking yourself up.. how many times I've had to do it is silly but it's made it easier for sure.
