*EDIT: IF THIS TRUTH-SPEAKING POST IS MAKING YOU FEEL DEFENSIVE or the need to lash-out IN ANY WAY, I invite you to slow down in this moment; pausing to notice what's happening in your body, & connect to your breath. Then, see what it would feel like to not speak/comment hastily from a place of anger, but to listen mindfully from a place of openness & willingness to shift your perspective.*
Dear White People:
The only point of having privilege is to leverage it for others & the only way to learn how to do that is to start by compassionately unpacking those layers in community.
I'm honored to be co-facilitating my first "diversity training" with @thalassophilelove
in New Hampshire tomorrow & I'm grateful to have the privilege to do so.
If anyone has questions about bringing this training to your yoga studio, workspace, or friend group you can always reach-out & ask about: RESOURCING RESILIENCE:
BUILDING UNITY THROUGH COMMUNITY!
/ Energy /
I want to talk about energy! Not the food (kj) or electricity (kw) type. I’m talking about the vibrational energy that everything on earth possess! Some people seem to have such a calm and soothing vibe, whilst others can be more intense. I personally have to be very deliberate about my energy and constantly work to cultivate a high vibrational state. It’s not easy! Anyone living with depression has experienced a very low vibration. And if you are an empath than it’s really important to protect your energy from others. So my question for you wise folk; how do you raise your energy when you are feeling low?
“Be the type of energy that no matter where you go, you always add value to the spaces and lives around you.”

Every Monday I have ceramics with two of my best friends and some old ladies.
We learn, work, talk, drink tea and eat cookies.
I get out of the house and get to create something I can't do at home.
I get to challenge myself, push my limit and my expectations of what I make.
Clay is alive, it moving and doing what it wants. You need acceptances and patience with clay and let it work with you.
So Im making a cactus, it's funny looking and it's meant to have a candle in it and a place for essential oil at the top (see the last picture)

The way you treat yourself and your body not only effects you and your life but everyone around you. You teach people how to treat you. So choose to take care and choose to be kind ❤

“They will find you.” These are the words spoken to us by the president and CEO of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence. “They will find you,” because the need for long-term housing and therapeutic aftercare in our area is so great that we will not have to seek out women and children who are hurting, they will come to us. We are praying in hopeful anticipation of what’s to come, and of the day when we can open our doors, and they will come and find us and have a place to rest

In the recent classes of our Social Behavior and Emotional Learning Workshop, we have experienced the transformation of negative emotions in the language of art, discussed our problems and reactions through cognitive thinking, and talked about our strengths and accomplishments to enhance our confidence and abilities in handling negative emotions. In the process we have witnessed the inner resources of our young participants, and we believe that they were empowered through the activities. -
Day 3/7 of fruity days
Lmao! When you see me looking at foods in its nature just know am carried away just just by the beauty but the goodness it brings to human body,
Oranges are the most popular and mostly consumed fruits in the world, it has lots of health benefits such as: *prevention of kidney stone
*Aids digestion and prevent constipation
* contains micronutrient with helps to prevent stroke, cardio, anaemia and improve immune systems * readily metabolised due to simple sugars it carries. ----------------------------------------------------
However when consuming Oranges in juice form, intake should be controlled to prevent excess consumption and abdominal complications.
It is also important to note that consuming them whole and not just juice supplies its fibre content to the body which speeds up metabolism and lowers cholesterol.

So this post is just me trying to be real and honest about myself... I had been wanting to post it for a few days, and since I was on a roll of IG posts, I figured this is a good time as any. Please, feel free to skip it.
Some of you may not know this, but from mid-February to end of March, I get much more emotional. This is the time of year when everything I feel is heightened. You say one bad thing to me, even as a joke, and I’ll take it the wrong way and to the next level.
I am pretty good at keeping my emotions in check, but this time of year always becomes much more difficult. My mind is flooded with memories, and not the good kind. I become distant, I push people away. And yet, I want attention. I want people to come after me. I want them to reach out, even when I make it seem like I don’t want them.
This is the time of year when I crave the sun and warmth. I want beach days to refuel my body with positivity and vitamin sea. I get so caught up in the darkness, I crave the light. I know I love dark clothing, Halloween and candlelit rooms. But this is a type of darkness that runs deeper than that. It’s the type that makes you cry. The type that wants to hurt you to take away the pain you feel in your heart. It’s the type that floods your brain with horrible imaging.
I always come off as a strong person. But the truth is: reach out, tell me you’re there, tell me you love me. Even if I say I don’t believe you. Even if I say leave me alone. Even if I say I’m fine. I will attempt to push you away, because I feel like I am undeserving of your amazing love. But really, deep down, I still want it. Don’t give up on me at this time of year. I promise, I will return the favor the other ten months of the year.
