I usually try to avoid that at all costs. When I get out of the shower, I quickly grab hold of my towel to cover me before having to see too much of myself in the mirror.
Today I sat there, staring at myself. I saw so much more than a naked body.
I saw a woman who struggles in many ways.
who has made many mistakes.
who has failed over and over again.
who lets her fear drive a little too much of her life.
who holds on too tightly to things and people that she shouldn’t.
who gets angry, irritated, and annoyed with petty things.
who is flawed.
but you know what else I saw?
a woman who loves Jesus.
who desires to serve him.
who has been forgiven, redeemed, and is unconditionally loved.
who may carry some regret, but knows it is only to remind her to never make the same mistakes again.
who has a heart bigger than she knows what to do with.
who has the ability to love so deeply, even those some may see as unlovable.
who never harbors hatred in her heart.
who desires to grow, change, and be better.
she is fearful, but she knows how strong she is.
she is stubborn, but she is wise enough to know when to let go, say no, and walk away.
her scars are reminders of where she’s been and where she will never return.
it’s taken her years to be able to appreciate her freckles.
she may see belly rolls,
and notice how her eyes are asymmetrical when she smiles,
or realize her teeth aren’t straight,
but this body is her home.
this body is her own.
it can heal.
it can feel.
it can breathe.
it can move.
it can carry children.
it is what allows me to fulfill my purpose here on this earth.
and that’s what makes it miraculous. #journeytoloveme

Really feeling my confidence RISE lately, these last few months brought up so much insecurity from past experiences, even all the way back from elementary and middle school days. I released all that people pleasing, seeking approval and validation from outside parties nonsense and I'm loving and accepting myself for who I am. I'm a unique, weird, WOMAN. 🦋 Thank you Florida 🌊 for the love and Hello SPRING! 🌷 .
Where you stand now, how you feel, your thoughts circulating, the condition of your body is telling you a story about how close you are to your soul. How much of it you are choosing to let in. ✩
Our entire being is communicating with us each moment about how to get into a deep flow with our spirit and the cosmos. Not in English, but in the language we all spoke before we came here: symbols and energy. ✩
You may not always understand what your intuition is telling you, but understand that it is always speaking. You don’t have to know every detail all the time, it’s not possible, there is no peace there. Develop a confidence not based in knowing and control but rather based in beingness and flow. A peace based in your ability to flow and be at ease even when you feel pressure and stress. ✩
What helps you let go and lock into your deeper flow of intuition? Let me know in the comments. I use my breath and I also make mantra-like sounds that resonate in my body. 🙋🏻♀️♥️
All of us are born with potential.
It requires building the strength of skill with the lightness of released burden.
It's expressed differently in how we live, work, & play. It's also molded by our life experience, culture, and community. There are many facets to unleashing and managing our potential.
Birds that fly all have thicker & stronger, but fewer, feathers. Their chest bones allow the flexibility of flight, and their muscles to flap are much stronger. Their bones are also hollow & lightweight.
Any of them can fly.
It takes a lot more to soar.
You must LEARN the way things flow, how currents will affect you, what you're currently capable of, how to rise swiftly that involve complex decisions, and to enjoy the ride.
Gather your strength. Let go of what's weighing you down, and learn how you can soar!

Waterfalls - A message from our world
Symbolic of letting go
Waterfalls may also represent your goals and desires. -
It can also mean that severe disappointment will only make you wiser.
You see, #Water continues to move through it's own life, despite the uneven surface it travels on. Despite the rocks, bumps, potholes and dead ends. Despite the sharp turns, the unannounced change in climate, the change in directions, the wind, the pressure. Despite what happened yesterday or what's supposed to happen tomorrow. It #Flows
- #Fearless from any opposition, from any #Conflict , from any #Disappointment .
- #Confident in that wherever it's going it's supposed to go
Without the #Certainty of knowing if it will even get there
You see Life, is about how you travel through it. How you approach each and every problem you encounter. The idea of life is to solve our current problems for better ones. The pursuit of #Happiness revolves around solving more problems and, the truth is, your life will never be problem free. Ever
Life is about giving less care about what doesn't directly affect your life and only worrying about what does. Yet even what does, doesn't affect the water's #Flow .
The water keeps its #Shape .
Too often we are consumed by the #existentialism in the world. The idea that you are not enough. The constant reminder that we need more to be better. That although we may have accomplished so much, there is always someone doing more. So, therefore, what you did is no great feat. So, we try to be like others, fit in, impress those around us. We Camouflage who we really are, for who we think others want us to be. Because we feel that we either are not enough, or that we are are missing out.
It causes us to feel that what we have is not enough because there are so many other options out there. So we take on new shapes, instead of allowing ourselves, our lives, our situations and our relationships, to flow.

Part1: Flowing through a panic attack. This is some real shit. I can hardly think of the next pose to go into because my mind is flooded and overwhelmed. You can’t turn it off. I want to just curl up in a ball and cry. It’s put me in the hospital. It’s cost me relationships. It’s cost me beautiful nights out with friends. It’s like having a parent for the rest of your life constantly telling you “no, you can’t do that.” Sleep is all that remedies it for me. Mindfulness helps. Yoga helps. But those are temporary distractions. You have no idea how powerful the mind is until you sit, flooded with fear, trying to think of anything but that fear. My heart feels like it’s going to pound right out of my chest. My arms are on fire but my body is cold and trembling. Please know that when people experience anxiety there is nothing you can do to help. It’s internal. It’s a fight that I have to fight on my own. I would never wish it on anyone but I wish everyone could experience it once. I want to run away, quit everything, retreat, surrender. As I sit here, resting for the past two hours my heart rate has not dropped below 125 bpm. It’s fuxking scary. So please...please be kind and understanding to those who suffer. You have no idea what it’s like.

Warning...this is gonna be kind of a long post • • • • • • • The last few weeks have been a test for me. Heavy news, break ups, death, and then my transmission went out in my 2014 car that I haven’t even paid off yet. I feel so heavy and can’t help but feel the weight on my shoulders and to fret about what is ahead, but then I remember how grateful I am to be 27 and on my own, and not in a lot of debt, and I have a healthy body, the best job, the absolute best friends and family to support me. They are my foundation. I was about to pull the trigger on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii, but something inside my heart was keeping me from going. I kept wondering why I was having these subtle hesitations about going to this beautiful place and hiking and seeing the ends of the Earth. Reality smacked me in the face with a 3k bill for a new transmission and I cannot think of a more beautiful example of how “everything happens for a reason.” I also can’t help but have noticed the way people make their way back into our lives and what it does. I’ve had instances over the last month where my past has reared it’s ugly head. Past me would have indulged these people because those were people I once CHOSE. I chose them to be in my life and share in everything with me, and so sometimes those people can still seem to be a comfort. Don’t be fooled! Yes, they know us well. Yes, we’ve loved them and been vulnerable. BUT those things end for reasons and opening up those old wounds always ends up in devastation and disappointment. So this time, with realizations I’ve never had, I see how great my life is. How good I have it. How freaking proud I am of myself for how far I’ve come and how much I deserve going forward. I have always let my partners define what I deserve. I have always let them steamroll my self-confidence. 2018 has sincerely been a year of self-discovery for me. Of course it’s also been one of the most challenging times in my life but I know the rewards I will reap for really really focusing on being the best version of myself will pay off tremendously. When I think about how bad things can be, someone always has it far worse. ❤️song @lewiscapaldi• • • • • • • • • • • • •

This is the longest I’ve gone without yoga. I’m pretty sore. Life has been so busy but it’s always weird to me that when I take these interim hiatuses I always find when I come back I’m able to do things I wasn’t before. I *do* stretch regularly though. This time I was able to maintain a handstand for more than a second which is a HUGE leap for me🌻I find when I’m doing any sort of inversion, if I remind myself to engage my core, straighten my back and look through my arms (most challenging) it is much easier. I’m still dropping in the shoulders a bit in my head/armstands, but that will come. My biggest focus has been on my posture. My back loves to be round through the shoulder blades. Even if I’m mindful, I find my back is STILL round. So I’m still getting a feel for that straight spine. I’ll post the whole sped-up version v soon ❤️ Please NOTE that I am not a yoga teacher or a professional. Just sharing my mistakes, my journey, my thoughts.❤️As I have the privilege to sit at home today, I want to say Happy Veterans Day, and thank you to all of the brave souls who have served our nation. 🇺🇸 • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •🎵by @jackgarratt • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
