Do you meditate? ————————————————————————
I meditate daily to release stress, to focus on gratitude and improvements as well as opportunities. I do it so I can enjoy my life even more. When I’m stressed, I’m not the best version of myself. But I’m not interested in becoming a good meditator, I do it to get good at life 🙏🏼
"I'd rather agree than upset you"
This one is actually hard for me to post about.👇🏽
There's SO much I have wanted to say over the years. "No." "Respect my boundaries". "I don't want to do that". "I disagree and I'm not sorry". "That's disrespectful and you can't say that to me."
But I've always sugarcoated, been so afraid of people walking away, so wanted to avoid conflict. To the point where I've put my voice last, my truth in the backseat - and let others' needs take precedence over mine.
Last week I went to an NLP/mind reprogramming session - and one of the biggest things that came up, was that I'm tired.
I'm TIRED of not saying what I really want to say, and of BITING my lip to keep the peace.
Ever since, I've been pushing myself to be lovingly HONEST with those in my life.
You know what else is amazing? Music and this album I am working on, are my WAY of expression myself unapologetically. .
And this album has helped me become more authentic, more vocal.

You never end up feeling better, that's just honesty.
Be aware of your thoughts and actions.
✨ Are you making hurtful comments toward other women- online, behind their back or in your head-?
✨ Do you judge others based on how they look and act, but not simply because you don't agree with it but deep down you wish you could be like that?
✨ Do you constantly compare other women to your own size, weight, worth?
✨ Do you follow accounts that post about other women in a negative light and claim It to be "helping shed light on real women and improve self love"? (I wish I could say these accounts don't exist, but they do. Even if someone edits their photos, judging them and making hurtful comments never does any good. It's always important to remember there is a person behind that picture, probably suffering from self love as much as you.
“I know. I told him. “
“I told him the socks may be too much. That he needed to offset with a yellow argyle or something to contrast the shoes.”
“He decided against it. He’ll never do that again, believe me - he was having a conversation with a hipster blonde and he tanked.”
“I told him. I told you so. It was the socks. “
“He agreed. We’re leaving now. He has another pair in the car.”
“Trust. It has to be established right away in the dog/owner relationship or it’s not going to work.”
“We’re making progress”, Finn smiled at me as he finished sharing this story with me.
“See ya, Finn, thanks for hanging out and sharing”, I said.
Trust. It’s a foundation. Trust yourself. Trust your intuition and always wear your best socks. You never know who you’ll meet.
Sending you love, love and more love today ❤️

I've been called "The Self-Love Queen" many times by many people. And you know why? I've got my self-love on LOCK. Or, so I thought... But I was wrong.
Years ago I learned to love my body, all of it, cellulite, stretch marks, loose skin, the things I'd spent years actively pouring hatred and disgust into became the things I adore most.
I learned to love my mind, discovering that much to my surprise, I wasn't stupid afterall despite what my parents told me.
I learned to love my gifts, talents and abilities which, holy shit! I actually HAVE! That was also a massive surprise! I'm SUPER creative in many remarkable ways, I'm an amazing teacher, mom, healer, coach, friend, lover and appreciator of life!
But... SO much of me wasn't ready to be fully witnessed yet... the DEEP messy parts weren't ready. They needed to see TRUE self compassion before they could surface.
In November I heard/felt a loud clear NO in relation to my coaching business. EVERYTHING inside of me said gently but firmly "STOP. Slow down. You need to be your only focus for a while." I listened. It was HARD and also, somehow easy when I really let go of how I thought my life was supposed to look.
I experienced some kind of ego death and then... then the "ugly" stuff started showing up... asking if it too might be worthy of love. Many of these things have been childhood trauma and the patterns that have fucked up my relationships as a result. So here I am looking at my pain as it wonders if it can be loved, knowing the answer is yes, yet needing to work through it first.
I'm still learning to love myself. At this point I don't think I'll ever not be tbh. I love it. I wish you a lifetime of learning to love yourself too. 🙏
Thank you @santinod for the OP that inspired this reflection. .

Girls, we expect a lot from our bodies:
They carry our babies for 9 months on the inside, and then far longer on the outside.
We expect them to run, jump, carry, and stretch, all while running on little sleep and (often) not the best nutrition.
And we expect our bodies to bounce back perfectly after each baby, each surgery, each mishap, accident, or struggle, and we get upset when our bodies might not be up to the challenge.
Girl, please.... give yourself some grace. Love your body: it’s done so much for you! And return the love by being kind to your body: give it some rest, feed it some healthy food, give it some gentle exercise, and most of all - don’t beat yourself up because your body might not look the same at 39 or 49 that it did when it was 29 (or 19).
It’s perfectly OK to want to improve from where you’re at, but do it because you LOVE YOURSELF and appreciate your body starting right where you’re at now. ❤️, Jennifer
Today is day 5 of #TarotGuidedAsanas and today we're exploring The Moon card. The Moon is known as the card of deception. It usually indicates that something in your life is not as it appears to be - whether that's in love, relationships in general, your career or your finances. It's often a card of danger and is a warning to be extra alert and aware of the happenings in your life.
I went with Anjaneyasana (Crescent lunge) today because it's a) super pretty and b) probably my favourite deep stretch for hip flexors and quads. That pull is just too nice.
Cards of the day (Choose whatever Asana resonates):
Day 1 - Wheel Of Fortune ✔️
Day 2 - The World ✔️
Day 3 - The Lovers ✔️
Day 4 - The Sun ✔️
Day 5 - The Moon ✔️
Day 6 - The Empress
Day 7 - Death
Day 8 - The Star
