💠“The harder, duller work of self-care is about the everyday, impossible effort of getting up and getting through your life in a world that would prefer you cowed and compliant. A world whose abusive logic wants you to see no structural problems, but only problems with yourself, or with those more marginalized and vulnerable than you are. Real love, the kind that soothes and lasts, is not a feeling, but a verb, an action.”

<👁❤️👁SOULFUL CHALLENGE: One of my favorite practices is to “just act on Spirit’s voice”. Throughout the day, consciously listen for Spirit to guide your decisions. Clear your head, ask for guidance, and LISTEN. Then, act. It’s important to act quickly, before your Ego can jump in and start analyzing Spirit’s request. Just trust and go with it. If Spirit doesn’t respond immediately with direction, just wait. An answer will show up. Then – act. Try this for ONE WEEK. Every time I make this conscious commitment, I’m amazed at where Spirit leads me. Often it doesn’t make sense in the moment, but then becomes clear later. The gifts are incredible. Try this!
Commit to the Process – To cultivate a deeper relationship to Spirit, and radically reduce the control of Ego in your life is a process. Life gets in the way. You’ll notice yourself getting stuck, being fearful, resisting life, and blaming others. But, as you deepen your commitment to the process, you will find you’re able to recognize the destructive and unconscious patterns in your life more quickly, and make responsible, conscious choices to take empowering action.> ✨MARY ALLEN ⭕️http://www.lifecoachmary.com/spirit-vs-ego-by-mary-allen/

Life is not always glamorous, especially not for a medical student. I don't want you to think that because someone posts pretty pictures on instagram or makes youtube videos, that it means they have their life figured out and get amazing grades and live perfect lives. I know many people on here try to look that way by showing only the best moments in their lives, but don't let that make you believe that their lives are better than yours, or that they're smarter, more organized than you. It's not always the case. Don't let your self-esteem , self-worth and confidence be affected. You are amazing. Aspire to be better than you were yesterday and never compare yourself to others. #medschool#medicalschool#medstudent#realtalk#keepingitreal#selfworth#selfesteem#confidence
How are you showing up for yourself compared to how you are showing up for others?
If a friend asked you to do something for them, would you follow through? More than likely yes right?
Now, if you asked yourself to do something for you, for example meditate or go for a run, how impeccable are you to your word? .
Why do you not treat yourself like your own best friend? Comment and let me know if this is you. - or tag a friend who needs to see this 💛
#authenticselfie I need to hand it to all the runners out there. I've never been drawn to running as a form of exercise but I know my body needs pushing, it's getting too comfortable, and comfort only leads to stagnation. If I want to get the most out of me, I need to challenge myself and nothing is more challenging for me than running. I couldn't even run around my block. I knew it would be physically challenging but what I didn't expect was how emotionally challenging it was. At the gym everyone is exercising, we are all sweating, puffing and it means we are all equally vulnerable. However running around my neighbourhood, I was the odd one out, everyone else was just doing daily life which left me standing out. I felt their eyes follow me, probably purely because I caught their eye. It left me so vulnerable, my red face, my sweat, my jiggly bits were out for all to see. Exercise was no longer private and I really felt like people would judge me for not running well, or looking silly. I soon changed that tape playing in my mind to one of encouragement. Even if they were judging me, which really I doubt they were, did I want other people to stop me from looking after my body? No!!! Let them stare, I will not be erased, I will not be made to feel like I don't have a right to run, or jump or sing. My body, my way. Instead of beating myself up, suddenly I was cheering myself on. "Look at you go, you are a champion, look at you not caring what people think, you're giving others courage to run too". Suddenly I was no longer self conscious and I proudly ran around my block!!! Hooray. I love that with running seeing my progress will be pretty easy, I'll be able to compare how far I could run without stopping. So excited to add this to the ways I move my body. Hope you enjoy my running face photos 🙌🏻
When you start making changes in your life it’s exciting and scary all at once. You’re proud of your accomplishments and a little overwhelmed by all that’s happening. Having to deal the stress of other people’s disapproval on top of all of this can really take a toll on your self-esteem and ability to keep making the changes you want to see in your life. But understanding that this outside hostility is a smokescreen for fear, remaining calm in the face of resentment, and remembering the reason why you’re making the changes you are will help you to remain on track and weather the storm when people complain that you’ve changed. #dontlosefocus ------------------------------ If aren't a follower yet, make sure to follow @mentor_in_a_box for more posts like this!

“As your consciousness, refinement and pureness of heart expands you will become less judgmental, less corrective, less reactive, less black-and-white, less critical, less apt to blame and less tormented by others and their faults and views.”
“Your suffering needs to be respected. Don't try to ignore the hurt, because it is real. Just let the hurt soften you instead of hardening you. Let the hurt open you instead of closing you. Let the hurt send you looking for those who will accept you instead of hiding from those who reject you.”
“Unless someone is trying to help you, don't you dare, ever let anyone tell you who and what you are, because, on this planet, you are the unquestionable and supreme authority on — you.”

Quante persone incontriamo in una giornata? In treno, sui mezzi, per strada, in aereo… Ogni giorno viviamo un intreccio di parole, sguardi, traiettorie… Un brulicare di persona da mattina a sera che transitano e si scontrano nello stesso percorso… 👣👣👣 Ieri, aspettando l’autobus, che tra lavori in corso e traffico è sempre (sempre) in ritardo, ho visto una ragazza passeggiare sul marciapiede che ad un tratto si ferma per guardare il telefono. E sorride, con un grande sorriso, guardando il cielo. 😄 “Avrà ricevuto una gran bella notizia” ho pensato! Non solo, mi sono accorta subito che quel sorriso aveva illuminato tutte le persone a lei intorno, compresa me. Quante facce imbronciate trasformate da uno sconosciuto… 😳😳😳 Oggi mi auguro di incontrare un’altra persona così (o di essere io la fortunata, perché no!) che illumini anche questa giornata… e che capiti anche a voi! Lasciatevi illuminare dal buon umore di uno sconosciuto, che sia il barista, una commessa o il passeggero accanto a voi… Non vi è mai capitato di esserne contagiati?!? E’ una gioia! 🤗🤗…. Buona giornata viaggiatori!✈️ #travelpsych 💓 🇮🇹 *

In my latest video I talk about why I started, what held me back, and holding myself accountable to keep going. If you want to watch check that link in dat bio you kno 🤓😘
Log #3 This isnt fitness related, but its health related. Struggling with anxiety that only seemed to get worse through adulthood has been rough. Personally, therapy doesn't work for me, so I started being prescribed different meds to help. First off, they did help my anxiety and over thinking, but it also made me like a zombie; I never ate, and I never really talked as much as I normally do, or even have the urge to do anything outside my bedroom. Then I found CBD oil. Thank for Lord!!! My anxiety has not completely gone away, but CBD has helped me get off prescription drugs, I feel like myself 98% of the time, I can take this with me anywhere, and I started working out again&socialising. It isn't a quick fix, but it sure beats feeling drugged up all day. I hope this helped someone&let me know if you have something you take or do that helps manage your anxiety and stress <3 #stress#adulting#anxiety#therapy#cbdoil#fitness#exercising#girlswholift#selfesteem#selfconfidence
"You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
’Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
’Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history’s shame
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise." Maya Angelou
"My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself.
I don't use special creams or treatments - I'll use a little bit of everything. It's a mistake to think you are what you put on yourself.
I believe that a lot of how you look is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life. Happiness is the greatest beauty secret." - Tina Turner
We often said something we didn't really mean it all the time.
Like i love you you love me.
One day i said i hated you because you refused to walk with at the mall eventhough i knew you dislike it.
But honestly i did not mean it.
And i've been trying to avoid it at the lowest amount i could.
