Yes. You are perfect, just as you are. At the same time, we can be working to become a more authentic us, to evolve.
Too often, we beat ourselves up for not having it all figured out. For not having the things or money or appearance society tells us we should have. It's okay. Learning to accept and love ourselves as is, if you will, is a process. If we can't love ourselves now, why would we love ourselves with a new car or a bigger home? Why would I love myself more if I had plastic surgery to remove signs of aging, if I don't like what's inside? If you can't learn to love you for who YOU really are, no outer changes will ever fix that. It's taken me far too long to learn this lesson.
I am an aging, saggy, fat, non-conforming woman. I also am a beautiful, sparkling, intelligent, passionate, talented, warrior and goddess. I choose to embrace who I am and I remind myself of my positive attributes daily. I am more than my body, or what others think of it, but I also have learned to love my body, for getting me through everything I have endured in my lifetime. I will be writing more about this, but for now, know that you are a miracle. You are a masterpiece and a work in progress. You are worthy of unconditional love and joy. Honor yourself and know that I see you and you are beautiful. 💙#youareenough#fearisa4letterword#ibelieveinyou#unconditionallove#joytherapy#staymagical#sparkle#shine#hatersgonnahate#beautiful#selfcare#investinyourself
I was having a shaky start to the day...feeling annoyed/angry for no particular reason (or so I told myself - there's always a reason), something that hasn't happened in a while. I had a talk with myself, vocalized what was actually wrong and decided I wasn't going to ruin my day because of things that are in the past and can't be changed. I also accepted that I cannot live life avoiding getting triggered, how I handle that soul disruption is the true test. The same way I would have spoken to a close friend, is how I spoke to myself. You don't have to paint your entire day with the same brush from that dark place. I hope we all have a great day and are kinder to ourselves, check in with yourself today x

But really I’m just trying to work up the courage for a many mile hike today up 12 flights of stairs after the last one like this left me in a panic attack at the top 😜😂The fear of heights (& failure!) is real my friends!!
So it takes time and effort to transform into a whole new person.
It's not easy to forget who you were since past twenty one years but it's also not about forgetting but learning from the past experiences and transforming into a better being.
I crib a lot, I have been a pessimist for the longest time and I'm way too insecure and emotional.
Is that bad? No, not really. But that does come in the way of a lot things that I want to do and be and all these things sort of have been hindering my growth ever since.
So, I'm learning to love myself. To look at myself in the mirror and smile and not feel ashamed of who I am. To be able to meet people, to speak my heart out. And most of all to be able to embrace this solitude and stop cringing.
I have been through a weird time and unintentionally all those things are still trapped inside my head and have shaped me in such a way that I have become insecure and crazy, but I have a long way to go.
We all need to rectify some things in ourselves, so do I.
We are all flawed, yet beautiful!
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate this precious thing called life 🎉
You don’t have to spend your time berating 🤨
Choose instead to spend it celebrating 🤩
How will you celebrate your life today? Yes I mean you 😉😙👍🏻 #onepreciouslife#youvegotthis#womenempoweringwomen
you know yourself better than anyone else. even if you think you don’t. you do. what words do you need to hear right now? say it. what affirmation will get you through the next couple of hours? say it. what did they stop telling you that you miss the most? say it. you are up to you. so if you’re up now or just getting up: heal yourself by telling yourself the things no one has ever told you. write it down. speak it out. cover yourself with words they never said or could ever say. i love you. @lovaste ✌🏾❤️
YOU ARE ENOUGH. Those words aren’t really said a lot in this world however they have started to make an appearance over social media. People are starting to focus on their wellbeing, their inner health as well as their outer health. These words are so small yet so powerful, YOU ARE ENOUGH!
Also if you are wondering why I changed the name from katrosaolwen, well the main reason was because I didn’t feel like it was something that was helping you guys. That is the whole reason I started, I wanted to help people like me (or not) that needed support and a way out of health issues that the medical world deem unimportant or not worthy of their time. I have been living with this for over 6 years and I have learnt a lot over the way. About the whole body, which is why I decided to change the name and open up an informative and wellness website. More to come soon but for now just go love yourself 😘
🧡It’s ok to put yourself first .. to take time for what you need, what you want, what you crave. 🧡Wether that be exercise or creativity, educational or something spiritual ~ maybe it’s a sleepin or getting your hair done. 🧡Regardless of what that thing is , if it energises & nourishes your body & soul, go right ahead. 🧡The wheels will keep turning, but even better. 🧡What will you do to fill your cup today ?
✨If not now, then when???✨
What are you waiting for?
What do you want to change and improve?
What do you want to feel better about?
What are the reasons that are holding you back?
What Monday are you actually going to start?
Why wait? Why start on a Monday? Why not now?
I recently had a conversation with someone who admitted they were pretty anxious about life. When I asked them to talk it out, they expressed their concerns about their personal, work and everything in between. As I sat and listened to them, I couldn’t help but feel a sadness overcome me, as I observed their state of mind and where these thoughts were coming from. All of their thoughts were future based. Let me explain.....
Worrying about future based thoughts is linked to anxiety. We worry about the maybes, what if’s and possibilities in what lies ahead. But the fact of the matter is, these things haven’t happened yet. So what does this mean? Putting so much of our energy into negative future possibilities doesn’t serve us, in fact it does the opposite. Energising these fear based thoughts only gives them momentum. And if you believe in the law of attraction and that like attracts like, what do you think that these thoughts are doing? •
It can take a few, if not many sessions to get my clients out of this state of mind; getting them to be more present and stepping into their light. Be brave and take that step towards releasing yourself from the fear based prison you’ve created for yourself. I believe in you ✨ #theblisscoach
💕 I have to remind myself each day that it's never too late to start over again. What's stopping me? Nothing is and no one is. If I allowed myself to stop moving forward, then I will feel like I'm drowning in quicksand. There are going to be bad days that will set us back to where we will feel like absolute shit and hell but we have to remind myself that those bad days won't last forever. There are going to be good days ahead and if we look at the positive side of things, something good will probably show up in our life. Trust yourself and believe that you can get through anything. Your strength, your bravery, your positive and genuine attitude will get you through anything. Remember, you're not alone and you're enough. 😊💕 #selflove#encouragement#selfcare#positivemind#motivation#youarenotalone#youareenough#inspiration#fitnessgoals#myjourney#keepgoing
Minimalism can seem like a fad, but it's a really great way to live your life. It's not about living without material things or never buying a product again, it's about being mindful of what we consume and only buying what we need. You'll be surprised how free you feel when you learn to shed some of your material baggage.
What are you not doing because you're scared?
Or, because you think you're too old, too young, too afraid, too ordinary, too big, too small, too shy, too tall, too short, too far along, or too different?? It could be something as simple as signing yourself up for that painting class. Making homemade chocolate chip cookies. Or, having the conversation. Or, it could be something as exotic as signing up for a yoga retreat in Bali. Taking that new job across the country. Or, finally writing that book.
It doesn't matter what it is. It matters you don't let fear keep you from doing it.
So, my sweet friend, I urge you to think about what lights you up inside?
What makes you excited?
What are you really longing to do but haven't?
Because, as I had to remind myself these last couple of weeks, we're never too old to try again. It's never too late to start over. And as George Eliot famously says, "It's never too late to be what you might have been."

There is this common toxic misconception that somehow we are able to compartmentalize different areas of our lives and manifest certain things at certain times.
For example, when you’re focussed on work…. that’s when you’re manifesting clients.
When you’re at the gym, that’s when you’re manifesting your bod.
When you’re on a date, that’s when you’re manifesting your dreamy life partner.
That’s simply not how it works. You are manifesting ALWAYS.
For example, When you’re doing something for work and you’re thinking of yourself as overweight…. guess what you’re manifesting? Those extra pounds despite your gym efforts later.
When you’re on a date but slightly stressed and thinking in the back of your mind about having a slower month at work…. guess what you’re manifesting…. more lack and limitation.
When you’re running errands and spot a cute couple and then go into loneliness…. guess what you’re manifesting? More aloneness….
Do you see how this works?
Besides the Universal Laws at play, did you know your unconscious is not logical at all and it doesn’t compartmentalize either! Which means however you’re showing up to one area in your life, to your unconscious that’s how you’re showing up everywhere.
So often a client comes to work with me on one specific thing and then ALL areas of their life dramatically and awesomely transform. This is the power of knowing how to do this internal work! And why I’m so passionate about it!

you have my heart. so each time i say those words i want the sound to fill your body with the same harmonies, the same colors, the same vibrations. because sometimes how i say it lacks the fullness of what i mean. that’s why it takes me so long to write. i sit and meticulously find the right words and rearrange them for hours until they are just right. you’re too important to let love be empty. @lovaste 🌹
You are(I am) enough, my darling. 💕💎
Psalms 139 1-15
1 You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
2 You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
5 You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,” 12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
"If you always gauge your life on what other people think, you'll be in a constant state of panic, trying to please everyone. People should concentrate on their own lives, and their own happiness, and their own health, and whatever that looks like for you, be happy with it." Be *you* my friends. ✨ #youareenough
All the little birdies
With their light Greetings so high so sweet
Some days is sugar some days is meat
each song is a lullaby
I listen too
Blessed Greetings Dear Day #sunshine#YouAreEnough#EverythingYouNeedIsWithin # dancingseafox
