If we aren’t honest about what we are feeling then we are automatically repressing our genuine emotions into our subconscious, which adds to the accumulation that creates distance between us and the happiness that comes with freedom.
Being honest about what we are feeling by accepting our emotions as they surface is essential in letting these emotions go and creating more room for real happiness. Focusing on remaining calm and aware of the truth that moments of difficulty do not last forever allows emotions to pass through us as opposed to hardening and being added to our burdens.
For example, when we honor our sadness and remain calm in its presence we do not replicate and increase the sadness, instead we allow it a smooth passage out of our being. If we attach ourselves to our sadness and allow it to consume us we create friction and tension in the body that makes the emotion linger and grow.
When we understand that what we feel is not who we are and that everything is always changing it becomes much easier to let go. Sending love to all beings. May we all be peaceful and wise.

Self-care Sunday to-do: Spend some time reflecting on and counting your blessings. ❤️🙏🏽✨
Let go of what your pose looks like on the outside....
Let go of what a pose is "supposed" to look like.....
Let go of external feedback..... Focus on what you body is telling you
Focus on how your body feels
Get in the zone. This use to mean on the basketball court for me. A player who is “in the zone” is unconscious (not literally). Their bodies are moving effortlessly, without thought. They are making baskets without the ball hitting the net. It’s like a higher power has taken over and everything is easy. Seems like everything is out of your control, but you are so in control. Your body has taken over
I experienced “getting in the zone” numerous times as a basketball player. But I never thought I would experience it again once that level of competition ended
Not until recently. “Getting in the zone” now means being out in nature. A quiet space for my mind to release and let go of the daily chatter. A time to connect with my inner being and the energy that surrounds me. And when I am able to quiet my mind and connect to what surrounds me I have been able to experience that same energy flowing through me that I once experienced on the basketball court. Pure bliss
I thought those days were over...until now 🌿☀️🌻✌🏼

Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.
Forgiveness= Empowerment and freedom. Forgiveness takes time, be kind to yourself.
Absolute awareness of the pain that played a role in your part and the other persons part is often all that is needed to set you free.
Be the person who cares. Be the person who makes the effort, the person who
LOVES WITHOUT HESITATION. Be the person who bares it all, the person who never shies away from the DEPTH of their feelings or the INTENSITY OF their HOPE.
Be the person who BELIEVES - in the softness of this world, in the GOODNESS of other people, in the beauty of being
Be the person who takes the chance, who REFUSES TO HIDE. Be the person who makes people feel seen, the person who SHOWS UP.
BE THE PERSON WHO CARES.
Because the world doesn’t need any more carelessness, or any more disregard...
And because there is nothing stronger than someone who continues to LOVE...
despite it all.
"Where was your heart when we needed it most? Live in denial and I'll be your ghost. There is nothing to let go; only time will let you know if you're worth anything, you'll know then. Giving up way too early. Let the axis turn you free and destroy everything you love!
The world looks better when you're falling. Brace to comfort enough to crawl in. Divided we must pray for the broken, no one could fix us. We are, we'll always be… the wrong." —Coheed and Cambria
