So many of us are facing struggles, fears, inner battles, health obstacles, self-esteem concerns, family issues- the list goes on. We never know what someone else is struggling with until they tell us. We must take patience with the person who cuts us off on the freeway, for they may be rushing to get to the hospital to say goodbye to a loved one, or the rude person at the grocery store who is up to their eyeballs in debt and seeing each person that comes through their line as having a more enviable financial position because they can pay cash for their groceries. Choose love and kindness over the urge to return the rude behavior and you will feel free!
We've all experienced it, but sometimes it just helps to have a reminder. 😉
Healing can feel absolutely AWESOME! Realizing that breakthrough with the space / lightness that comes with it.
Or it can kick your butt for a little while because you gotta stop and process something through. In either case, remember to enjoy, let go, and move on to the new amazing you. Much love! 🙏❤
Many times it is not just the fear of new success and new actions, but rather the fear of letting go of what is not serving us any longer that can be the biggest challenge of all. Identify something you are afraid of letting go that is no longer serving you and commit here and now to letting it go once and for all!
This haircut was a lot more than trying something new. It was letting go of my hair- a security blanket. I realized I hid behind my hair a lot. Hiding my acne, my big ears, and more! Goodbye insecurities, hello confidence!
You have an inner light within you that is craving to be shared by those around you,
by the world at large –
but mostly by you.
When you share your unique light,
bit by bit, you light up the lives
of those around you.
And, one by one, you inspire them to light up too.
It’s a chain reaction.
And before long, the whole world lights up.
Your light is contagious

It's ok to eat! It's ok to enjoy food, not count calories or macros and not categorize food as healthy or unhealthy.
What shouldn't be ok is how bigger (or pretty much all) bodies are demonized and everyone is made to believe that food is an enemy to be feared, every meal thus becoming nothing more than an unbearable duty.
Don't buy into the body shaming, don't hate your body and don't hurt yourself with starvation and over exercising. You're already perfect the way you are.
Korowai O Ngā Atua. Time and time again I have driven through here, hopeful, slowed down, looked, sighed and driven on. Not today. As we turned the corner in the half-light onto the Eglinton Flat, Tāwhirimātea hung there, his korowai (cloak) draped across the sky. How could I not bend a knee in awe and wonder? Ka mihi nui ki a koe, e te atua.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.” – Marianne Williamson
Isn’t it interesting how that can be true? That our light most frightens us? And most likely we don’t even know it. So how do we understand our inner light? How do we find it? How do we show it? .
Here are my tips! Your inner light feels like warmth, love and happiness. Now here's the secret to feeling it at anytime: Focus on your heart ❤️ think about it, then imagine it vibrating. Feel that vibration through your body... and that's how you let your inner light shine. Try it ✨ #selflove#innerlight#wonderworldspace#doseofbliss
hello, my name is tova, and i am enough.
now, say it with me: “my name is [you], and i am enough.” i started out thinking my creative space today would be about the heart, and in a way... it still is. yet my mandala seems to be about rooting down, communication and finding light. my heart has recently been quite messy and undergoing a constant beating, from none other than myself. i’ve been having a difficult time finding self-love, self-care or any form of appreciation or kindness toward my own being for what feels like months. my ego has been telling my heart all kinds of rotten junk: “you’re not good/funny/talented/successful/hustling/brassy/soft/attractive/fit/active/lovable/interesting/sexy/yogic enough”. safe to say, you could insert a number of other adjectives in there, and i’ve said them to myself daily. today, however, something shifted. maybe it was because i had two great pep-talks from my husband and then my mom, because i opted to go to the gym instead of sitting on the couch and continuing the self-hate cycle, or the fact that i chose to carve some time out of a full friday to create a mandala? regardless, i came to a realization that all the inner-voice-gunk is only true if i let it be. we are all prefectly enough as long as we bring our true selves and best effort to the table every day [cutting ourselves some slack for what the “best” might look like from day-to-day]; avoiding comparing ourselves to what or where we think we should be based on some completely unrealistic expectation of what happy and successful should look like. i’m taking a step back to view my light, to make it burn brighter, to keep it organic and genuine to ME. to find my roots, use my voice and stoke my flame. the heart will benefit from all. in short: i am enough. and so are you. and that is a beautiful place to be, because that place is ours to foster however we can.
