This is my favorite bible text, it was the first one I learned as a child .
See that I command you ti try and be brave; Do not fear or faint, for Jehovah your God will be with you wherever you go.
Este es mi texto favorito de la biblia, fue el primero que me aprendí cuando era niña.
Mira que te mandó que te esfuerces y seas valiente; no temas ni desmayes, porque Jehová tu Dios estará contigo en donde quiera que vayas.
I didn't get my first tattoo until my late 20's and since then I've gotten 3 more and love every one of them as much as I did when I first got them. Each one, being a word that I have placed somewhere on my body that I see frequently throughout the day and provides me with the reminder I need. Faith, Love, Surrender and Breathe. All extremely meaningful words in my life. Lately, I've been thinking about getting another one and going back and forth on what I would get.
Each tattoo represents a different season in my life and I feel a strong pull to make note (or a tattoo) of this specific season. My first tattoo, 'Faith', represents my salvation. 'Love', the passing of my Nana who held a very, very special place in my heart. 'Breathe' represents the struggle, discipline and determination to overcome depression and my eating disorder. Finally, 'Surrender' the discovery and letting go and realizing I am not in control.
So, what represents my current season? Change. Something I've feared throughout my whole life and causes a great deal of anxiety. Yet, in hindsight, every obstacle I've faced in the past that led to one of these tattoos, I eventually overcame. I may have hit rock bottom a couple of times, I may have fought like hell against it and cried my way through it, but ultimately; I am still standing today. This morning on my meditation mat the word became very clear....
My friends, how many times have you heard someone reference a child as resilient. How about fear less? Very often, right? Right! At one point in time, we were all resistant and fear less yet life happened and our perspective got skewed. Today, today I challenge you to reflect. Reflect on what you've done, where you've been, what you've overcome. From there, realize how resistant you are. Unapologetically resistant.

Wren's first time swimming went well!! He questioned it at first and wouldn't let go of me, but he eventually opened up and then we couldnt get him to leave! I love being able to see him through new experiences and help him learn. #swimming#momandson#firsttimeswimming#brave#somuchfun
Here’s Something To Chew On... 5 steps in attracting Abundance and Prosperity
Step 1. Get clear on what you really want and Fall in Love with it!!!!
Did you know that one of the main reasons people don’t have what they want in life is because they’re not clear on what they truly want?
Step 2. Act like you already have the money.
How do you act and feel when you have more money than you can spend? Well, this is exactly how you should act and feel when you’re broke too.
Even though this may sound challenging, remember that you’ll only attract what you keep focusing on. Your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between what’s real and what’s an imaginary event.
Start by visualizing yourself as a prosperous person and soon you’ll start feeling and acting like one, and therefore you’ll attract more prosperity directly into your life!
Step 3. Remove your negative beliefs.
Do you ever feel guilty about having more money than others?
Do you believe you have to work very hard to be successful?
If your answer is yes, then you may have negative beliefs around money and prosperity and it’s important that you address them right away. Acknowledging them is the first step to overcoming them, so you’re on the right path.
Step 4. Be open to receiving.
Every night before going to bed, make a list of all the things you’re grateful for. Being appreciative of everything that you have will open you up to receive even more abundance from the universe.
Step 5. Take action.
Manifesting is a skill that you will master by putting all of these steps into action, consistently. Learning how to manifest and attract the things I want in life has transformed my reality, and if you let it, it can transform yours too. "I love my life." I dare you to say that every day of your life. -
Today has been a very all over the place sorta day. I woke up to my depression literally screaming...I just felt really down in my dumps for unknown reasons at the time. So this afternoon I was journaling and was just thinking and finally it came to me what was wrong...I’ve really been stressing over my treatment bc my therapists and I are moving into trauma work starting tomorrow and well I’m absolutely terrified and really nervous to start opening it all up...but I know it’s needed and it’ll help me in the end and that’s what I need to keep reminding myself!! Breakfast was 2 freaking cups of Kellogg’s fruit and yogurt cereal with some vanilla soy milk!!
Lunch and dinner I didn’t have time to take pics of bc I was busy but...
Lunch was a ham and cheese melt on a toasted bagel! It was really scary but I did it!!
Dinner was a chicken patty sandwich with a side salad!!
Nowwww....for my 100th follower challenge...I challenged one of my biggest fears...starbucksss...I had a freaking Carmel frappe god it was terrifying but lemme tell you it was delicious!! I also challenged more liquid calories to another fear of mine...vitamin water!!
My 100th follower challenge was really tough but I pushed through it and did it!!
I want to thank you all for the love and support it truly means a lot to me!!
I love you all so muchh❤️❤️ #anorexianervosarecovery#anorexianevosa#eatingdisorderrecovery#neda#anxietyrecovery#depressionrecocery#ptsdrecovery#recoverymotivation#beautiful#strong#brave#yougotthis#keepfighting#youreworthit#dontgiveup#selflove#mentalhealthawareness
Like #mommy like #daughter she is a literally the same as me, but better. I love how I see myself through her and we #intuitively get each other... #silly#smart#kind#compassionate sense of #humor#brave#strong#amazing and i have the #education and #copingmechanisms to teach her how to deal with stuff..early at a young age and not by 10 years of #therapy like I did as an adult...it's easier to teach them EVERYTHING and healthy coping strategies when they are little than say a grown #adult ...trust me in took me a decade to learn things...to have self esteem and confidence....she won't have to learn things and coping skills bc of what i have learned bc i model to her.... no matter what im always telling her it's 100% okay to be you and not shame her for it. This is my Kennedy. ❤❤❤❤
Fear is a liar...He will take your breath...Stop you in your steps
Fear he is a liar...He will rob your rest...Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire...Cause fear he is a liar
When he told you you're not good enough
When he told you you're not right
When he told you you're not strong enough
To put up a good fight
When he told you you're not worthy
When he told you you're not loved
When he told you you're not beautiful
That you'll never be enough...So cast your fear in a fire, cause fear is a liar #life#love#no#fear#be#brave#bold#strong#you#me#mercy#grace#brockdoctx
Sometimes you go through a mist, a rain shower, or the water pours, but there’s always, always dry lands ahead.
So here’s the truth, y’all, I’ve been having a hard time emotionally all summer. I like to keep my feed happy and fun, so I haven’t known what to post or share on my page because I just couldn’t fake it. You know the phrase “Fake it till you make it”? Yeah, I just couldn’t fake the smile today. I realized that due to life changes and stress this summer, I’ve been harboring some feelings away, and they’ve been festering. I kept them buried and put a smile on top.
After the festered feelings overflowed, a friend told me if we feel like our smile is fake, then don’t fake it. Don’t let yourself feel like you have to cover up the hard stuff to make it through the day. We CANNOT fake it will we make it. If we always fake it, we’ll crack and crumble and never get anywhere. Let’s feel our emotions and our feelings. Let’s find those supportive friends and communities. And let’s fight through the hard days because the days when we don’t have to fake our smiles are SO worth it.
So know, this confident, joyful, & strong Meghan doesn’t always feel so positive. And that Meghan needs days off every once in a while. We all do. So, if you’re reading this, and maybe feel like your smile is fake, I hope you know you’re not alone. I hope you know the genuine smile days are just around the corner. Let’s fight for them together. .

🗣Collective Energy for July 22, 2019🗣 This could and probably has been a day where you feel like doing something you've been arguing with yourself about. There's bold energy in the air. However, with my quintessential "talking-heads" card you could have others opinions distracting you if not your own various arguments within yourself. Timing here is not an issue. Whatever you feel like you need to do, just do it. Especially if it comes from the heart or at the very least a well intentioned place. 🖖🏻
A propósito de la foto, una reflexión... Hace unos días se programó una sesión de fotos y video para difundir la participación de @nefelibatamezcal (nuestra marca de mezcal) en el @festivalduba
Yo llegué teniendo claro que mi participación consistiría en coordinar, organizar y dar algunas ideas sobre el contenido audiovisual que se generaría y nada más; cinco minutos después estaba posando para algunas fotos, algo que no se hacer, que no tenía pensado hacer y que tampoco me gusta mucho, pero que hice, y esto, aunque parezca una simple anécdota, se parece tanto a la vida...
Hay muchas mujeres que planean ser extraordinarias madres y que lo hacen, pero que, además, un día se enteran de que también deben ser padres, muchos asisten a una invitación pensando en ser aprendices y terminan siendo maestros, otros pensaron que su vocación era tal cosa y terminan haciendo algo totalmente distinto, y si, así es la vida, a veces tendrás que improvisar, tendrás que ser y hacer algo que no habías planeado o imaginado y sabes qué? Es un bendito regalo. Tal vez no te guste, tal vez no era lo que querías, pero si lo haces, saldrás fortalecido de esa y estarás mejor plantado que antes.
Eres capaz de muchas más cosas de las que crees, sólo tienes que empezar a hacerlas.
La verdad a mi no me gusta esto de posar ante la cámara, generalmente no me siento cómodo ni en el proceso, ni con el resultado, pero que chingaos? Había que hacerlo y se hizo.
The point is not whether women are pretty or not pretty;
beautiful or not beautiful
in the eyes of a man.
It is about women being programmed to need approval from men in the first place.
It is about a woman seeing herself through her own eyes
and not through the lens of a man.
It is about a woman not changing herself for a man
and him accepting her for exactly who she is.
It is about women safely speaking for themselves freely
and their voices being heard by all
instead of being silenced or spoke over
by a male dominated discourse that is still present today.
The divine feminine principle is still lacking in this world.
The voice of the feminine is often manipulated or choked.
It is easy for a man to say “after you” to a woman’s body,
but it takes far more bravery to say “after you” to her voice.
