💕... resistance, no flow, doubts, sums pretty much up what I felt over the last two weeks.
For me a good sign that my expectations crash with reality🐢and it is time to act.
Some times I feel blindfolded and panic.
I reached out, talked, celebrated selfpitty and bitterness and guess what :
A new plan is born and it all makes sense - thank you dear @gunnengelsrud for your kind , wise and uplifting words and thank you @henriettesophia1 for listening lovingly and coming up with a fantastic plan that will blow new life into my business 💕🦉
I choose to own my story of struggle 🕊🌿
Thanks to all of you who believe in me and my ability to teach and inspire 😀🧡💛
👌🏼We craft love from heartbreak,
Compassion from shame,
Grace from disappointment,
Courage from failure 👌🏼

Completed Starry Sky Project. Which do you like the most? Though scheduled to be completed by February, but I am glad that it is done now. I learn that haste is not something that I pursue, but to enjoy every moment and be passionate in what I like the most. I would like to say thanks to those who stay with me and encourage me to be brave. Being a lone artist is not easy but every step is worth it. 😊
Check out @twokreativ my other ig account where I will be selling my artworks. Each artwork sold will help me to support a charity cause. I believe that change start within me and you, so join me if you are interested to make this world a better place. 😊
Let’s talk mental health... Mental health is just as important as physical health. It effects each of us differently and what works for one person may not work for the other. You need to find what is right for you. It took me a while before I could actually admit that I needed help, and therapy wasn’t cutting it. I was put on antidepressants over a year ago and it has made a world of difference. Riley has done the same.
We do not plan on being on medication forever. The medicine is definitely not a cure all. It takes time to work, and a lot of time to figure out what medicine will work for you. For us the medicine takes the edge off, and helps reduce some of our symptoms. We still have to work at our mental health. We meditate, journal, practice coping skills, and self care. We aren’t perfect at it. Everything takes practice. We never fail, we are just constantly learning what works and what doesn’t. It is okay to not be okay. If you need help reach out. Don’t feel ashamed if you need medicine for the time being. Do what is best for you. #mentalhealth#selfcare#therapy#selflove#recovery#addictionrecovery#traumarecovery#reachout#thisisus#ourlifeunexpected
This years #NationalInfertilityAwarenessWeeks theme is #infertilityuncovered . I think that’s the perfect theme because still there are still so many people suffering in silence & feeling alone with nowhere to go. There is so much that is unknown to people about the resources available in order to overcome infertility. Most think infertility treatment is going to cost them tens of thousands of dollars (& don’t get me wrong it most definitely can add up quickly) but don’t realize that insurance companies do cover treatment. It is. New York State law for insurance companies to offer infertility coverage. Yes , some better than others but it’s worth it to do your research.
If you’re not ready to have children yet but know you want to down the line, your routine OB appointments may go well but they don’t test your odds of fertility at those appointments. Did you know how much you can learn about your genetics & fertility with just a simple blood test at a reproductive endocrinologist / fertility center. Women are born with all of the eggs they will EVER have in their lifetime, where as men recreate sperm throughout their life, we cannot simply grow more eggs. It’s good to learn of the quality of your eggs and if you have a good amount or reserve. You always have the option to “harvest” and freeze your eggs until you’re ready to have children down the line. Your eggs at a younger age will be better quality than those at an older age.
If you are going through this I’ve said it 100 times, you are not alone. Search, research, look on instagram, YouTube, Facebook, resolve.org / niaw, online forums, or simply reach out to me. I love helping and can do my best to be the support that I know I would need during treatment and the dreaded wait. I can be support to you if you aren’t getting it anywhere else.
If you have a friend going through it... be sensitive. You don’t have to be afraid if you don’t know what to say. In fact you don’t need to say anything at all, just being there helps. Keeping you friend busy helps. Don’t be upset or take it personally if they don’t come to your baby shower. Infertility sucks, and being on large amounts of hormones makes us way more ⏩
Take a deep breath, and breathe in as deeply as you are able. Repeat. Look around at all the beauty that surrounds you, and allow all of your senses to soak it up. Self-care is so important. Remember to take the time to take care of yourself.
How do you take care of yourself? How do you feel afterward?
I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting..the last few days..my family has been going through a lot..but I just wanted to say if you are going through something or struggling with trauma or your emotions..please, reach out to someone. I know just in this health community alone that we struggle to see the beauty in ourselves. We think we will feel better about ourselves if we look a certain way or if we hit our goal weight. But if you don’t have a healthy relationship with your mind and body first, you’ll never be happy with your results. Stay positive, love yourself. You are worth the world. Just as you are. #reachout#loveyourself#healthymind#youarebrave#youarestrong#mentalhealthmatters#emotionsmatter#youareworthit
Today's spiritual thought from my continued study on Faith:
Faith starts out as a seed or a thought, a feeling. Just like a seed, faith needs to surround itself with good things like soil, living water, and the sun. However, it is not enough to surround yourself with these good things. A seed needs to reach out with roots and take those good things into them to grow and flourish.
In order for our faith to grow we need to reach out and take the good things into ourselves. It is not enough to be surrounded with the good, we must take it in. It is not enough to have scriptures in your home, we need to read scriptures. It is not enough to see others pray, we need to pray. It is not enough to listen to others who have had spiritual experiences we need to listen for and seek the spirit in our own life.
May we all not only surround ourselves with God and his Son, but also show our faith by reaching out to bring God into our lives. We were meant to be big and beautiful and we can be with Him.
I wanted to put it out there that I have started a support group for women. It's a group where you can vent or reach out for help or even just need a ear to listen. You can find the page on my personal Facebook page. It's a closed group so anything you say or talk about can not be seen by anyone not in the group. It's called Women supporting Women. We all have stories, we all need help sometimes. Please feel free to reach out.
The other week we turned a rough morning into a purposeful day. I picked this girl up with spontaneous yet, specific plans. Plans I felt were given to me by the one who knows her best. As I walked around the store prior to the date, I smiled thinking about how much He loves this daughter of His. He knew what would bring her the most joy and excitement this day. It wasn’t toys or things for her—but gifts to make and give out to others. As I explained the plans to Kinsley, I was touched by how her face lit up once I revealed we’d be writing letters and putting goodie bags together to give to people. She became all the more giddy upon learning it was for people we didn’t know. She then added in her ideas to make it all the more fun. We sat on the blanket coloring and filling up bags with candy and dollar store items. Nothing elaborate. I bought extra for her-but, she never once asked for any. The joy she found in this was blessing others and the anticipation of making someone’s moment. “I hope you have a wonderful day! Love, Kinsley” words she ensured were written on each piece of art work. Sitting there I watched as she colored her hardest, strategically added stickers, toys, and candy. At times she’d be out of breath or I could tell her hand was tired. But she pressed on with a smile thinking of the mission at hand. Across from me— I didn’t see a child, I saw a friend. A beautiful soul that Christ delights in, one His love radiates from. As we finished and passed them out we discussed who our neighbors are. That Jesus didn’t imply “neighbors” as those of close proximity or people we know well. But, everyone we encounter, and we have the opportunity to show love to each one. We agreed that spending time to love our neighbors was time well spent, and something that we’d make a habit. In seeing the way Kinsley loves and how God’s love for her is overwhelming- I’m encouraged— for I have to come to the conclusion and grasp the truth that He loves me that much, too. Mark 12:31 || 1 Thess 5:11
Is it wrong to pick up a mom and get her number while you’re out with other moms?
Sure glad mom relationships aren’t monogamous!! 😂 (Are there any more times I could say ‘mom’ right now?? 😏)
