I'm grateful for the #MeToo movement because it's reminded me to reflect on past moments I've chosen to forget. 🤔For me it's not about🚫 blame, and it's not about 🚫resistance. It's about understanding my worth now, ☝🏼and communicating that to others. It's about being LOVE, in all its forms. I respect myself more now than I did years ago. And I've noticed that I attract more of that love, joy and respect into my life. 🌅Last Sunday, at our first collaborative workshop, @renadumas, the attendees and I worked with the goddess Nemetona during our guided meditation and sound healing. 🏞She is the goddess of sacred space both within our bodies and in our environment. When we respect our environment, we respect our very being and vice versa. Through our human experience, we only see as much as we want to see, feel as much as we want to feel, face as much as we want to face, heal as much as we want to heal. ✨This movement is a rise in consciousness, proving that humans are ready to share their vulnerabilities, express their truth and understand that real connection happens when we communicate love. Let's be that ❤️ for ourselves and with each other. #loveistheanswer
🎼🎶Take a pause.
Take a break.
Inhale hope. Exhale relief. Quick make up a new empowering belief, now do something silly.. Direct your attention toward gratitude.
Who loves you?
Who do you love?
I promise you things are working out, soon you'll see.. Cast the burden off to the universe. Focus on the sacred union. Trust. And move forward confidently.. There are no accidents in the story we're living. We can't control everything that happens nor the people around us. All we can do take charge on how we react to the stories unfolding around us.. This too shall pass.
Close your eyes.
Open your eyes and see with a renewed perspective.
What's the intention?
What is at the core of what's most important to you?
Finish the sentence:
I'm in love with my life because... 🎶✨

Apologies for the crappy photo, but I just sketched this on BART on my way to an ArtSpan event. Anyway. Here's my reaction to #inktober day 16, #fat . This is how many girls first truly experience fat, and this tends to be their lasting impression of it. I to some extent still think and see [myself] this way, as much as I hate to admit it. .
Not only is this tied to insanely specific "standards" for body shape and beauty, but it also ties a woman's self-respect, self-acceptance, and self-worth to her appearance. If she's out of that narrow range, she's not only hideous, but she's also worth less or worthless. .
So yeah. Let's raise up our girls. Let's start respecting ourselves, regardless of where we are with our bodies. That does not mean abandoning taking care of yourself and striving to be healthy, but rather being patient with yourself and understanding that biology, and thus the body, is complicated. Looking a certain way doesn't make you more or less of a person. Being caring, compassionate, logical, and creative makes you more of a person. .
YES.. JUDGE AWAY. I'M EATING PIZZA AGAIN TONIGHT ;) ;) I thought I would give you a picture of the toppings underneath the mountain of mushrooms! If you haven't tried yams and corn on a pizza.. DO IT NOW. For serious.
Sorry for the repeat but I just am too damn good at making pizza! :P [

En sevdiklerimden biri hayatında bir son yaşıyor bugün....🙄 Kabullenmesi kolay olmasa da yaşam, bize artık hizmetini tamamlamış olanları, bitiriyor binbir çeşit sonla...😐 Bazen ayrılık, bazen ölüm, bazen boşanma, bazen uzak mesafeler giriyor araya...😳 Kalpler ilk günkü gibi atmıyor birbiri için...Gözler eskisi gibi görmüyor diğerini..😕 Her son bir başlangıçtır derler...Öyle tabii..Eğer bitmiş olanı sonlandırabilirsek içimizde...Acısını yaşayıp, yasını tutup göz yaşlarımızla temizleyebilirsek kalan tortuları... Öğrettiği dersi sindirebilirsek en derinimizde...😔 Zaman mı herşeyin ilacı..insanın kendisi mi bilmiyorum..🤔 Bildiğim birşey var ki ne oluyorsa hep hayrımıza oluyor..Bir kapı kapanıyorsa daha iyisi açılıyor..🤗 Neden mi ? ☺️ Çünkü ruh kendisi için gerekli olanı deneyimledikçe mutlu oluyor.....tekamül ediyor...kaynağına biraz daha yakınlaşıyor...🙏 ------------------------------------------------ One of my beloveds is having an end in her life today.... 🙄
Although acceptance is not easy, life ends the ones who have completed the service for us till now... 😐 Sometimes separation, sometimes death, sometimes divorce, sometimes distant distances come between each other ... 😳 Hearts do not beat for each other as the beginning ... Eyes do not see the other one any more...😕
They say every end is a new beginning ... So of course ... If we can end what is finishing... if we can live the pain ...and clean the dirt with our tears ... If we can digest the lesson that we have been taught ...😔
I do not know if time is the medicine or it is all about us...🤔
The thing what I know is everything happens for our goodness... If a door closes, the better one opens🤗
You ask why ? ☺️
Because the soul is happy as he experiences what is necessary for him ...evolving day by day... getting much more closer to his source ...🙏 #hayatımıneniyi90günü#best90daysofmylife#committedtomyself#the90daysplint#challenge#kendimetaahhüt#özsevgi#özdeğer#özsaygı#özgüven#özkabul#özfarkındalık#özbakım#özşevkat#özkeyif#özifade#özgüçlenme#selflove#selfworth#selfrespect#selftrust#selfacceptance#selfaware
A popular book this week with clients! It is too easy to get pushed into the "rush" & be swayed by other's expectations. Moments of mindfulness can keep us focused and confident in our abilities and beliefs.
There's nothing like doing the work to find your #success . How often have you come against #adversity and decided because of the level of difficulty, it must not be meant for you?
Who lied to you and said life would roll out the red carpet to a happy, easy life for you? ANYTHING worth having will not only require work, it will demand tears, frustration, challenges and a pound or two of flesh.
Once it realizes you're going to keep pushing, doors will open, a ray of light will show you the path and happiness along with success will show up. BUT there will be new battles to maintain it so don't get complacent. Are you ready?
👊 True, when you feel punched in the stomach because someone has treated you with such disrespect, trust me...they don't respect you, and you know what?! Life goes on. Be with people who celebrate you, treat you with respect, be with those who know how to disagree, and can do so without having the need to emotionally attack who you are as a person. Don't allow yourself to be someone's punching bag, and know their verbal, mental, and emotional abuse has ZERO to do with you, and all to do with how unhappy they are. You're just the whipping post. Walk away. You may have things to work on, but you don't need someone constantly reminding you in a manner that hinders you and keeps you down. Perfection doesn't exist, and they aren't perfect either. Work on yourself, for yourself, but do not believe for one second that someone who disrespects you consistently truly cares for you. That's not love
Unwanted attention, groping, touching, sexual assault, rape. 1 in 2 women will experience this. This is NOT ok.
The over sexualizing that comes from movies and commercials. The patronizing that comes from workplaces, friends, family, doctors. The disbelief that comes from lawyers and trials. And the list goes on and on.
So let's stay strong, stay together and say NO. No more of this. Your body is your own. Nobody has the right to it but you. Being harassed, groped or looked at in a way that's uncomfortable for you is NEVER ok.
Let's drag this bullshit out in the light. Let's call it what it is. Let's stop being ashamed for what is NEVER EVER our fault.
We rise together. ❤️
That time @photosbydarlenys helped me step outside of my comfort zone. Y'all when I tell you I was very tense during the photo shoot, I am not lying! For a moment I thought about not posting this picture because I cannot stand my double chin, but %$&@ it! I love this picture. That right there is a beautiful and happy woman. I had a hard time dealing with fat shaming during my teenage years. Because of their unhealthy body image, those closes to me forced me to to combat fat shaming by suppressing my emotions. That defense mechanism just caused more pain. Ahhhhhh, I forgive you if you were one of the individuals who hurt a younger me. I I'm definitely letting go!
