Never water yourself down just because someone can’t take you at 100 proof (Bikini @fashionnovacurve ✨🌸)
We don’t realize how much we are affected by others negative/dark energy, or things they say.We don’t realize how much we subconsciously absorb from others, that we end up turning these things into our own views about ourselves. One negative comment from someone can lead to us questioning ourselves. But what if i told you it doesn’t have to be this way?Most of my life i have suffered from crippling social anxiety, and constant worry about what others thought about me, or how i looked. This came from the constant bullying and mean comments i faced from “friends” or kids in school. No matter how healthy i was, no matter how incredible of an athlete i was, people picked me apart. Sports was my only solace, or where i felt at home. These influences stayed in my head for years, leading me into just as toxic relationships. It wasnt until after my recovery that i realized how much those things and people affected my mental state, and i finally saw i could set myself free from those binding shackles. These people wanted to see me fail, these people were threatened by my light, wanted to use my energy when they needed it, these people didn’t want to see me at 100 proof, or at my full potential. When you are working towards excellence, many will not want to walk with you, climb the obstacles with you,or swim in the trenches with you.Many fear the light you possess, so they do all they can do dim it.Whether that’s comments about your weight, size, looks, your personality. But what are we without our bright souls but an empty shell?These people led me to feel so deeply insecure about my body,my “flaws”, that i crippled myself from enjoying all that life has to offer,until i made the conscious choice to make a change, and set myself free. Sometimes our ED will pop into our head, to try to speak negatively about ourselves,and use the painful words of others as a platform.But guess what? YOU DONT HAVE TO LISTEN! You know your truth, your light is stronger than any darkness, you are beautiful, worthy &more powerful than you know. You have the power. Free yourself✨🙌🏽

I was first introduced to meal replacement shakes after my diet pill phase 🤦🏻♀️ I tried one and realized it was no better than the crap I was putting in my body before! Still filled with chemicals, processed ingredients, and just 💩 all together!! It wasn’t until I found this yummy superfood filled cup of amazingness that I started to realize and educate myself on what I was putting into my body! 🌱🥗
I am thankful everyday I found this plant based miracle shake that gives my body all the nutrients, antioxidants, and Whole Foods it needs 🙏🏻 and it taste like a Reese’s so that makes it even better 😜🍫 P.S.- had to take a pic with Gunner bc he just makes every pic cuter 😂🐶 #goldensofinstagram#superfoodshake
🌄 Sun rising
Some years ago I used to cry because I thought I was not good enough
I thought I wasn't pretty
I thought I wasn't loved
I thought I wasn't worth it
And it's okay to feel this way sometimes
But after thinking this we have to wake up and realise that nobody will ever be this same that we are
And it's so beautiful
You are you. And that's your power.
Today I cried looking at myself in the mirror
I look at myself with new eyes
I found myself beautiful
I'm worth it
I love who I am
Your world will change when you open up to the love within yourself and love all of yourself! 🌙💜 #selflove

Why is self love so important ?
One of the most important reasons why self love is so important is that it not only eliminates thoughts, feelings and actions stemming from a place of lack such as judgment, blame, doubt, etc., but it gives us a sense of fulfillment with love, kindness, generosity, happiness and so much more.
Self love helps us choose to act from abundance and helps us serve our purpose with more ease and love, of course.
Why do we need to prioritize it?
Because by feeding ourselves the love, appreciation, kindness, empathy, etc. we are able to recognize it easily in others which helps us understand ourselves better and take charge of our own lives while recognizing where we stand in the lives of others.
The top purpose of self love is to honour our values and boundaries at the highest levels and see ourselves and others through the eyes of love.
In today's coaching session, you'll learn some essential tips on how prioritize self love to help you live a happier and more fulfilled life.
Let's get started NOW.

Happy Thursday Tan Fans!😁💚
Background: An event featuring @marshmellomusic was cancelled after the event goers waited for seven hours, because, apparently he got ill due to food poisoning; but there was a riot at @dejavuktm protesting against the cancellation, fueled by what is now heard as insufficient explanation as to why the event was canceled.
Here we playing truth and dare,
here we are seeking faults again.
It’s not about money, maybe it’s the feeling of being lied to, being cheated on; for a broken promise mixed with alcohol. It’s foolish, I believe, to expect a silent acceptance in the moment, looking at how things turned out to be. Like what would one expect? That they would just shut up and go home when the main event of the show was cancelled?
It is trust we are talking about.
We are idol worshipers, creatures built to the core to revere something; one may even say, religious. We seek heroes, idols to look up to; we seek perfection, portray it on someone.
This time, Marshmallow maybe? Don’t laugh it off, I’m absolutely sure you have, or have had someone you’ve looked up to, you’d go and see, and would be pissed if they couldn’t show up while you waited cold and drunk for hours.
Emotions are stronger than rationality.
Besides, we are creatures who mimic. Most of us, we decide what is acceptable, how we should act looking at people around us, at what they do; and if one throws a stone, be prepared, for a shower of stones. Maybe so because the fault, the guilt gets divided, gets rationalized; “everyone else was doing it”, or “no one else was doing it, why should I”.
Now, do I agree with how things turned out? Well, absolutely not! It, I’m sure, was hell. Maybe next time, I’d wish we would act as conscious beings, that is, if we are conscious.
What should have been done? When human psychology is involved, the answer isn’t that simple, cause, psyche isn’t that simple; but maybe we should be more conscious (well duh, obviously); and try to put ourselves in others’ shoes (of the event managers’ and the club owners’); “try”, cause I know most of us aren’t capable of that either.
Let me take a moment to be 100% transparent. Over the weekend we came down with headcolds and for those who know me it’s rare that I or my son get sick. My son you’d never notice the difference he has just as much energy as when he’s healthy, me on the other hand, am down and out for the count! Thankfully this time there were no body aches because that’s what kills me the most, but Was super lethargic for the first 2-3 days which means I got Sh* all done and the house was a mess despite the fact my in laws keep it pretty clean and tidy too. .
I’m behind on all my projects, my devotionals, my studies and my plans for the new year, of which I’m kind of discouraged about now. All of this causes me immense stress as I like to maintain control and stay on schedule.
It’s hard to remember that sickness is the bodies way of telling you to slow down, and worse when I have a sore throat and have to re-teach myself to be calm, quiet and use other means of communication. My son is kind of confused because I’m not yelling at him to do this or that, so he thinks I’m seriously pissed because the only time I’m not yelling is when he does something really bad and i stand there quiet. Having to be quiet bc of my throat reminds me that I do need to work on that because I can feel the strain not only on my chords but throughout my body as the energy it takes is exponential. .
I’m just praying to get better quick because i have so much I need and want to do but I’m just so tired I can’t get the energy to motivate myself to get it done. What I did do was take a few minutes to write in my journal to take it easy that it’s okay I’m behind in everything and uninspired because I’m sick, that i need to slow down and stop trying to compete with myself and others. And some notes about what was missed the past few days. It may not have lifted the burden but it sure did ease it. .
.The best part about all of this though has been a much needed break from social media, I love seeing everyone’s posts and engaging in various conversations but the Break was needed. For that I am thankful.
Morning! Wishing I could be diving into this plate later instead of taking exams from 11:30 to 5:00 :/ Today is testing ALL the strength people but remaining positive is a must! Sometimes you don’t always see the hard work pay off in the moment, but it DOES make a difference in long run. Stay focused and stay positive! Im wishing you all the best!
"[....] Fast hätten wir uns mal demaskiert und gesehen, wir sind die Gleichen,
und dann hätten wir uns fast gesagt, wie viel wir uns bedeuten.“ "Ich, ich bin der Meister der Streiche, wenn´s um Selbstbetrug geht. Bin ein Kleinkind vom Feinsten, wenn ich vor Aufgaben stehe. Bin ein entschleunigtes Teilchen, kann auf keinstem was reißen, lass mich begeistern für Leichtsinn – wenn ein anderer ihn lebt.
Und ich denke zu viel nach. Ich warte zu viel ab. Ich nehme mir zu viel vor – und ich mach davon zu wenig.
Ich halte mich zu oft zurück – ich zweifel alles an, ich wäre gerne klug, allein das ist ziemlich dämlich.
Ich würde gern so vieles sagen aber bleibe meistens still, weil, wenn ich das alles sagen würde, wär das viel zu viel.
Ich würde gern so vieles tun, meine Liste ist so lang, aber ich werde eh nie alles schaffen – also fange ich gar nicht an. Stattdessen hänge ich planlos vorm Smartphone, warte bloß auf den nächsten Freitag. Ach, das mach ich später, ist die Baseline meines Alltags.
Ich bin so furchtbar faul wie ein Kieselstein am Meeresgrund. Ich bin so furchtbar faul, mein Patronus ist ein Schweinehund.
Mein Leben ist ein Wartezimmer, niemand ruft mich auf. Mein Dopamin, das spare ich immer – falls ich´s nochmal brauch." Julia Engelmann
Das hier und jetzt ist der einzige Moment der wirklich existiert. Ein kostbares Stück Zeit, das Dir geschenkt wurde. Was wirst Du mit ihr anstellen ? .
💙➡️ #TRUTHBOMB - It really does start with you. You can do all the dating and put on all the lipstick and hire a coach and talk a good talk all day long, but unless you truly commit to being kind to yourself and stop shit-talking yourself, then it ain’t never gonna be enough. Never. 💙
Start with self-love. Truly commit to it like you would a workout or a new job or a proper project. Commit to stop shit-talking you, and actually start to love yourself instead, because of YOU dont believe you’re worth anything, how is anyone else gonna see it either? It starts with you.
My course on how to get this self-confidence and self-love (without cheesiness or overwhelm) and get the partner you truly desire and deserve is now available to buy.
Start with you, today. Link in my bio at @yoursunshinelifecoach
The strong suffer for unknown reasons and if we look deeply at ourselves through passionate eyes, we will see our unfathomable strength that we’ve always been equipped with to overcome. Ignite that flame. You’re so incredibly worth it. Never.Give.Up. #tbt with the talented @aosmap ✨
