  • When was the last time you buried your toes in primordial mud? Or stacked rocks as high as they would go? Or walked barefoot along a forest creek? Go out and ground yourself 👁 Touch some dirt, dance on bare earth, channel some feral divinity, reconnect 🌻

  • Firstly, let me say that I don’t need no cis person or even cis adjacent person in any body/fat positive community telling me as a non binary trans person what I need to do or not to do in order to “love my body”. Save that shit.

Secondly, I don’t need anyone making assumptions about me “perpetuating toxic diet/fitness culture” because you see me posting some vids of me and my kindred working out. If you haven’t genuinely paid enough attention to what I share and unpack on my platform...that’s on you and you’re no different than all the folks who clump you in categories based on outward presentations.

I’m invested in working thru my shit (cause i ain’t perfect) and healing as many areas of my life as I can. The decolonization process is real. But none of us solely hold the key to what that looks like.

Lastly, I’ll leave you with this quote from Han Koehle:
“When I started lifting a lot of folks that I kind of know (but relatively few actual friends) assumed that I was trying to lose weight or launched into trying to do hating-our-bodies-together behavior. I don't get up at 5:30 to hate my body. I get up at 5:30 to connect with it. Like a lot of people who have experienced sexual violence and like a lot of trans people, it's easiest for me to exist as a floating intellect disconnected from any sense of physical reality. It's easiest for me to exist on the internet, as written word only, rather than as a physical presence. Lifting requires me to be mindfully present in my whole body and gives me a structure for experiencing that mindful presence in a safe way. I've only been lifting for a few months but lifting plus therapy has been genuinely transformative.”

  • Erika L. This photo represents  communcation because a father and a son have come together after years of not talking to each other. The fact that their hands are together show that they are connected once again. Their relationship has been terrmoultous throughout the years and after a few beers and some tears they can start anew.

  • Take a moment to look back. ⁣
⁣
Examine your life and look to the negative experiences and how you felt then. ⁣
⁣
Now switch back to the present moment and how you feel now. ⁣
⁣
How have you grown?  What lessons have you learned?  What magic has happen to you because of the dark? ⁣
⁣
I found myself in a bout of crippling depression earlier this year.  I was stuck, consumed with the darkness. I slowly climbed out of it and started to feel like myself again. ⁣
⁣
Fast forward to now. I have a new found joy for my life.  I am grateful.  I am the type of person I've wanted to be and I try to live each day being that person. ⁣

  • I had an appointment yesterday at my alma mater, and due to a mix up, had over an hour to spend before the meeting. Enjoyed a bowl of bee hoon soup and even more, I enjoyed the anonymity I never had when I was a student. Caught up with a former teacher who held space for me back when I was an emotionally tormented teenager only now we can revisit the past as two adults whose vocations are to hold space for the hurting. I'm touching base because the next season of interior healing for me will be about the wounds I received during schooling days. I am grateful in particular for reconnecting with a dear friend who knew me since primary school and who has become an unexpected facilitator and resource person in my journey into my childhood. You know who you are. ♥️ #reconnecting #healing #interiorjourney #singapore #grateful #school

  • You never know where the day may take you.
Today I had the privilege of having my portrait taken by @soldiersrd
It was a very emotional & humbling experience that has left me with a desire to connect with my whakapapa and with a greater sense of identity.
Losing my mother at such a young age unfortunately meant losing so much more.
Today I saw my mother, my grandmother and those wahine who went before them, looking back at me in my reflection.... It was a hugely pivotal moment for me... that has been a long time coming.
Thank you Soldiers Rd Portraits... You are beautiful wahine who are making differences in this world that truely matter.
I can't wait to see the actual portraits...❤️

  • 🙋🏼‍♀️If you’d like to be soaking up this view right now! 🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️ 📸 Piccy from our Tassie trip - winding down in our dream tub at @thaliahaven

We’re both heading off on little mini breaks tomorrow.

Given we have babies now the holidays may not look quite as relaxing as the above pic 😂 but we’re still really looking forward to some family time. Anyone else take the Friday off to score the 4 day long weekend?
