Everything hurts right now. My head, my heart, my ego, my body, just everything. So what am I going to do about it.... I’m going to be angry, I’m going to cry and grieve, I’m going to laugh. I’m going to meditate. I’m going to do my yoga. I’m going to sit here with this, I’m going to stay with myself. I’m going to support myself. I’m going to hold space for myself. I am going to be present here and now with myself. I will not run. I will not abandon myself one more time. I am going to be here right now and for every now to come. Note to self: I’m here for you #selflove#authenticity#realshit#notetoself
I LOVE the Chakra System! It can be seen in so many ways ~ not just as energy but they relate to your emotions, your business (what I teach 😉), and even the organs of your body! .
Lately I’ve been making a point to have a reflexology session at least once a week and it is doing wonders... then at my session today I picked up their chart... and guess what - it incorporated the chakras ✨✨✨
Another personal light bulb went off as I saw a connection between my body, the treatments and what’s been happening with my Business. .
As I always say ~ there is no separation between you & your business. .

"I’m a very sensitive person. I’m a songwriter, so I have to live with my feelings on my sleeve. I have to not harden my heart, because I want to stay open to feel things. So when I hurt, I hurt all over. And when I cry, I cry real hard. And when I’m mad, I’m mad all over. I’m just a person; I like to experience whatever the feeling is and whatever I’m going through." #DollyParton 🙏🏻❤️💖 Thank you for all the inspiration, Dolly, and happy birthday to a truly badass woman.
There is no greater feeling than when you are living and breathing your purpose.
It all lives in us. Our purpose that is.
It’s covered up by layers and layers of who we really aren’t.
I’m thawing. My heart feels like it’s melting. I’m softening every day as I step more and more into my truest self.
I’m falling more in love with people.
It’s never felt so good to be generous to and for others, to really stand for people and to make a difference.
That is what matters to me.
I had always been searching for my purpose, for meaning, for what matters, for what is important.
I’ve listened to what other people have told me. I’ve listened to the world.
I was lost, really lost.
I was agreeable to what other people were. I followed others. I forgot about myself.
I’m coming back to myself.
Someone told me today something so brilliant. She said, “You aren’t a follower. You are a leader. Stop putting others on a pedestal.”
This stopped me in my tracks. My heart stopped.
I have been following others, trying to be like others, molding myself into others.
I get to be the leader of my life. I get to empower others.
I love you all. Wherever you are, keep going. Wherever you are, love it because you’ll never be there again. There is nothing wrong with where you are.
It’s perfect. You are perfect right now in this moment.
How can you be more kind to yourself? How can you be more gentle towards yourself? How can you be more loving?
I honor you. I see you. I am proud of you.
Day 19 of the Reset, Reboot Challenge by @iamsabrinadavi ---
Today went pretty smoothly... My routine in the AM includes getting my breakfast made, doing a mini workout, prepping lunch and getting myself out the door so I arrive to work on time. I finally got the timing of all this right today lol...slowly, but surely..💚💖💚 --
Things I've noticed:
1)I stopped drinking as much water as I was before when I upped my protein - totally not on purpose, but I feel really full with the protein. Need to bring my water levels back up.
2) My fingertips get tingly after finishing yoga and using the adjusted finger positions...feels almost like my circulation in my hands gets reactivated ...would love to know what's actually happening though ---
✨Welcome to Aquarius ♒️season!TBH I don't know a lot of Aquarius folks. My own personal understanding of Aquarius soul purpose is to elevate our minds with electric ideas that can unite humanity. It's also very eccentric energy but my favorite author 💖💖
@india_ameye put it perfectly, "Eccentricity acknowledges we create our reality". (paraphrasing). What an empowering idea!

Too funny!!! Sitting drinking coffee @thomascornereatery Noosaville, glanced up at the take away menus....and there’s our boy!!! @luke__carr with his face in a bowl of ice cream at his uncle’s wedding at the restaurant several years earlier! Proud mamma moment 💓 @davidsteele79 @millisteele
I like to play outside of the box they have made for me. I was born this way. That's how my brain works. Create from scratch and grow an extraordinary solution to an inimitable opportunity - enthusiastically answer a question that wasn't asked yet. A consummate, authentic existence in a vacuum. NO apologies.
- Sara Rose Snelling 🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸 As much as possible, I try to live authentically and not pretend to be who I'm not. As such, I tend to stay away from anything or anyone that continues to compromise something that is beautiful to create something that is fake. I'm selective with my time and energy because both elements of life are limited.
I'm not doing well lately.
I'm sick and struggling and having a hard time reconciling making decisions based on my health and not based on what I want. I know there is so much good in my life--most days my heart is bursting from the amount of love I feel for those around me and I am eager to see what the future holds. But this week, this month, has been testing me, so I'm throwing it back to a day where I was happy and care-free as a reminder that those are things I can be. I know it's okay to let myself feel things- I know I HAVE to let myself feel things to work through them and heal, but it's hard. Use this as a reminder that you too, can be care-free and happy and light: but that it is okay to be heavy sometimes.
Regranned from @montywinters - Let them judge you let them misunderstand you
Let them gossip about you
Their opinions aren't your problem. You stay kind, committed to love,
and free in your authenticity.
No matter what they do or say
don't you dare doubt your worth
or the beauty of your truth.
Just keep on shining like you do.
What other people think about you is none of your business.
This simple statement is very important, something that needs to be deeply implanted in your mind.
People will think whatever they want, they will respond to you as their mindset dictates. You cannot spend your life worrying about them and what they are saying. It is merely their opinion, not truth.
Simply being a human being, you will be misunderstood. Everyone is different and we all have diverse points of view depending on our life experiences.
We have been socialized by a culture that sets the norms for what is acceptable. So anyone that ventures outside the parameters of the tolerable standard is suspect, misunderstood, judged and a victim of gossip.
This type of negative behavior says more about the people doing it, than it does about you. Just be who you want to be, not what others want to see.
You don't have to explain anything to anybody about anything. 😎 -
WHEN ‘THE WORK’ CATCHES UP WITH YOU🍓
Lately I’ve felt this sense of no longer just pulling out weeds and tending to soil but actually seeing things sprout and even tasting the juicy fruits ripe on the trees - the ones that are ready to be plucked and relished in all their sweetness - and absolutely shared around!
After the arduous “doing the work “ for years and years… which is much more an UNDOING than “doing” … Lately I’ve had a felt sense of “Oh, it actually WORKS!
Yep - the work works! … eventually it all catches up. •
I am not claiming I am “done” now.
Not at all.
I feel like now I can truly begin…
As I get out of my own way, I feel myself becoming way available to be of service to others!!
The “work” - whilst it might seem like it is all about me, is actually not.
It has all been preparing me to be a FORCE in the world! .
A force of Love.
How that looks and what that means reveals itself with each moment I open to it.
It feels bold but true to claim this.
I am here to serve Love, and my body is the vessel through which I do that. •
Radical self-care and tending to my body has been (and will continue to be) essential to serve this commitment.
My soul wants to express and embody and she needs a well-honed vessel through which to do that! .
MY BODY HAS BEEN MY GUIDE through all this and for this relationship I am SO grateful!
Your body talks. Listen. Feel. Trust. Follow her lead. There is no formula.
You have the keys to unlock your pure potential and to open to the Universal Life Force .. which I call "SHAKTI" to move through you.
And what a BLESSING that is! ✨✨ If you feel like you are “doing the work” but nothing is happening. Let me assure you - it is. Keep going!
You can’t harvest amazing crops in ground that is full of weeds. Consider the weeds your conditioning, trauma you’ve experienced (no one is exempt), beliefs, unresolved pain etc etc .
And ABSOLUTELY consider your body as a means to unlocking all of that so that you can be and embody more of WHO YOU REALLY ARE in the world… and not just be the product of your past experiences.
You WILL reap what you sow !
May the Shakti be with you, darling ones💫
No pun intended and I will take this down just like I do my other so-called negative post but if I don't say it no one else will. Not knocking your hustle and I guess there is a market for it but miss me with the details please🙏🏼NO MORE DMs FELLAS! NOT INTERESTED 😉#positiveenergyonly#authenticity#originality#TS
Self-compassion, my friends. That’s what this book by @daniellelaporte is all about 💝
“Can you imagine not craving to be different than you are right now?... Because here’s the sacred paradox: transformation begins with the radical acceptance of what is.”
Quotes like that are why this book has become one of my go-to references for pick-me-ups or random bouts of wisdom and insight.
👉👉What are you favorite spiritual or self-help books??
Being a stationer allows me to express my creativity through everything that makes my heart sing. From recycled papers to studying and creating illustrations of varied flora + fauna, this journey through paper is pretty surreal.

✨Here's a picture I took on my way to work last year, after having 3 or 4 absolute PTSD breakdowns/ I joked I had a "psych break" for "most of February", but the truth is that I cracked in intermittent stages from January, after my birthday, the end of the month when I was met with my mother decidedly violating most of my triggers to prove to me that healing is all in your head... and I lost mine, and gained back new pieces each time. Simultaneously, I was drinking way too much after work and doing my best to empathize with a struggling friend, when I needed to have been caring for myself and my own partner. I'm grateful to have learned the lesson, but as a result, a lot of January- March is foggy for me. I genuinely hoarded photos in my phone to keep as anchoring points and pieces, to remember the things I've experienced as I continued to move through it and "level up" each time.
Before I was capable of asserting healthy boundaries, I would do everything for everyone to prove that my heart and intentions were pure, and show my circle how well loved they were, but I neglected my absolute basic care in the process. Add to that undue mental strain, and both my partner and I abusing alcohol, it was gross and frequently unstable, as I clawed my way through to heal my trauma monsters, still had some PTSD tics wrapped up in driving, and felt my grasp of reality and "control" slipping on most in my environment.
This day, I had just battled 10 metaphorical demodogs in my personal upside down before work, and after pulling out of the driveway I saw that our new neighbors preened these trees. They were a comfort object and I didn't realize it. I don't remember anything after that, but I'm grateful I made it back and forth safely. 🙏🌟 Life is weird. Embrace what feels real, even if it doesn't feel comfortable. Growth rarely is.
