"Look closely at the present you are constructing, it should look like the future you are dreaming."⠀
Whilst stories speak to our hearts and can create a magical stirring inside us to begin to inspire positive action; we need to be mindful of the facts; and to sift through emotions; perceptions; judgements and embellishments to find our way to the truth. Once we know what we are dealing with; its time to #getupoffthatthing and take some positive inspired action- creating real and lasting change in the quest for justice 🙌

W I S E W O R D S • I see so many people stretching themselves thin, then feeling they don’t do anything to the level they want. A few questions to ask yourself with new projects/tasks/work? Does it align with your vision? Why are you agreeing to it? What is the intended outcome, for it, and you? Will it compromise other things for you, and if so is it worth it? Think about these questions before quickly agreeing to do things, take your time, you can say ‘no’ because you can’t do everything 🌸 #melhwellness
Think of an insecurity you have. Now think about what you can do RIGHT NOW to change it —� odds are, you probably can’t. Doesn’t matter if it’s something genetic, physical, personality, whatever it is. And I want you to do something crazy. EMBRACE IT.
Why? Because you are beautiful and awesome just the way you are RIGHT NOW. Yes, I’m serious.
Some days I have lots of insecurities. Some days I have less. You probably can’t tell in this picture, but I have a giant scar down the middle of my chest from heart surgery when I was an infant. It’s something that I was EXTREMELY self-conscious and insecure about for many years of my life. Some days I still am. But I’ve learned to embrace it because it makes me who I am ❤️ So embrace those insecurities and tell society to f*ck off because whatever society has to say about it is WRONG. Just be you. Because YOU are awesome. ✨
