  • Day 7 #adventchallenge with @iammelwells 
Today I took a few hours OFF SOCIAL MEDIA! I spent the morning at work but alone sitting on the floor w my music and did my kids report cards for classes as they were due this weekend (and picked up a snazzy new toque-yup its winter here in Canada atm). I spent some time with my partner. Then went briefly on Facebook to wish my neice a happy birthday, after that I was offline as far as social media was concerned. I watched Netflix, played some games, read a bit of some of my fav fiction and texted with a friend. I waited until 9:15pm to sign on and write this. 
We forget so often how important time with ourselves is. When I'm on social media I am checking on good friends and seeing if I can help any one or if E.d. is turned on i spend the whole time judging myself for the percieved flaws of my current life situation. In my search for balance taking time off social media is definitely key! I know it was much more than an hour but it was definitely worth it! 
Hope everyone had great quality you time today! Loving everyones posts!

  • *The Peanut-Butter-Sandwich-Choice: Part III*⁣
⁣
If you missed Parts I and II, check out the last two posts before you read this.⁣
⁣
++++++++++++++⁣
⁣
I can hardly sleep that night. ⁣
⁣
The rest of my family is in bed, and I’m tossing and turning at 2am.⁣
⁣
I feel this pang in my stomach. A sensation that I’m all too familiar with. It’s deep and intense, but I’ve gotten used to it.⁣
⁣
“Ignore it, go to sleep,” my eating disorder says.⁣
⁣
“Eat,” whispers my body.⁣
⁣
“IGNORE IT, go to sleep!” it tries again.⁣
⁣
“EAT!” my body speaks louder.⁣
⁣
“IGNORE IT, GO TO SLEEP!” the voice is screaming in my ears.⁣
⁣
And in a calm, yet stern and motherly-tone I hear:⁣
⁣
“EAT.”⁣
⁣
And then there’s silence.⁣
⁣
I crawl out of bed, down the dark hallway to the kitchen to flick on a light.⁣
⁣
I open up the cupboard doors, pull out 2 slices of my dad’s favourite rye bread and a jar of Kraft Smooth…⁣
⁣
...and I make myself a peanut butter sandwich.⁣
⁣
{Stay tuned for Part IV}⁣

  • Being in touch with your Intuition is your birthright as a living breathing human soul. Often referred to as the “6th sense”... there’s a place deep inside you that just knows. What is true for you.. how to meet your own needs.. who you’re meant to be with and just what life choices serve you and resonate. If it feels off it is. The more you can work through fear conditioning that has made this concept so foreign for many... the more you will hear it. No outside source has more information or knowledge than the soul. It can’t be defined by words just felt by coming closer and closer into contact with our true nature. Love.

  • I feel so homesick right now. I miss my friends. I know if I was standing at the top of this hill I could walk in any direction and find an open door with open arms. At the top of this hill  is just the beginning of a day filled with more than work, chores, helping others, and sleep. My phone used to ring at the top of that hill. But also at the top of this hill are the million reasons I left and haven’t come back. I wanted my children raised safely away from abusive and narcissist people who might hurt them, but traded everything I am in the process. I left the family members that still love me behind, I left my friends.  All I have left is the part of me that works, does chores, helps people, and sleeps. My phone does not ring. There are no open doors or arms here. I feel like a permanent outsider, always on the outside looking in, but never really part of anything or mattering much to anyone.  I knew I was giving up a lot when I moved, I just didn’t know I was giving up all of myself in the process. I have learned to be very strong on my own and know I can get through this. Sometimes, truthfully, I’m too lonely to be truly strong, but I don’t know any other direction to go but forward.

𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘢𝘯 𝘪𝘮𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘵 𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘵𝘺. It comes in so many forms. I’ve always been shy to express my creativity...at least in front of other people. ⁣
⁣
My mom @shirleylavine is an incredible artist with many mediums. We have similar hair, but I’ve never really thought of myself like her in that regard. ⁣
⁣
This picture was taken on a night of total creative exploration with my bff will. We got a big canvas and had so so so so much fun. ⁣
⁣
Im not refined in any medium, besides guitar with a specific nod to @johnmayer. However, I was deeply inspired to shed my fears and attachment of “what will the canvas look after I’m done” and just fucking go. ⁣
⁣
One thing that really stuck with me was to paint with the idea of movement that flows through my body whenever I hear a groovy beat. ⁣
⁣
The product of that night is obviously not shared here, but maybe this post will inspire someone to try expressing themselves in a way they never though was possible for them. It’s powerful to 𝘭𝘦𝘵 𝘨𝘰 and 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘥𝘰. 𝐓𝐫𝐲 𝐢𝐭! ⁣

  • I just want be heard. Not just listened to, heard. That's what you want too. Deep down we all just want to be understood. Even though this is my deepest desire, I have failed to do this for the people I love most. In our desperate attempt to be heard, if we are not careful, we will be incapable of truly hearing others. Truly knowing others. It is a deep and silent cry from within that says, please understand me. Please understand what I am trying to convey. But we can't. So often we can't. Why?

Who needs to know us more than our very selves. Be that for yourself. Listen to your insecurities, your pain, your despair. Listen. Learn to hear yourself and learn to give yourself what you need most. If we can capture this and grow from within, maybe then we can hear others. Maybe then we can gift someone else with what we want most. To be seen, to be heard, to be loved.

I’ve always found it important to stick to what feels real to me. If it doesn’t resonate strongly or tickle my senses, am I just conforming to an expectation made from societal rules and constructs?
•
I come from a culture where holding back, hiding or suppressing emotions, and not speaking up is standard. I felt stuck and lost in this, and I was of course swept away in it in many ways as well. Toxic relationships, lack of connection to family and friends, inability to communicate properly, and a feeling of never being enough.
•
Thankfully I was brought up with a lot of freedom of choice - and damn, did I make some bad choices! Consequentially, I was never put into the dreary lane of conformity of what was typically expected (uni degree, steady job, house, car, family) and my bad choices all of a sudden made sense.
•
I value my individuality first and foremost, where freedom of choice, emotional and intellectual evolution, doing what makes me brimming with joy, and sharing this to my best capacity. It brought me to a community where all my individual traits are celebrated as are everyone else’s!
•
When we celebrate our individuality we connect deep to our true essence, and thus we will connect more deeply to other people who are doing the same. And together we form communities, collectives, and tribes, that are strong and supportive where no one is held back or suppressed, but elevated and celebrated for each younique individual that is part of the whole.
•
Be yourself, and you’re going to find your community. That in itself is a celebration.

  • People aren’t afraid of failing. You are afraid of failing in front of other people.

You’ll sing in the shower, but you won’t sing on the street corner. You’ll record a video, but you’ll never release it. You’ll be your own biggest critic, but you won’t at the same time also be your own biggest fan.

That needs to change, starting today.

Step #1 is, embrace your bold ideas.

I’m a big believer that when you have these moments of boldness – maybe it’s happening right now! Maybe you’re feeling bold right now watching the video. Amazing. You have these moments of boldness. And then you fall back down. And that’s normal.

So, when you’re feeling bold, whatever you come up with – I want to go and do X – you have to do it.

Step #2 is, expect to suck. This is where it gets super-liberating.

Expect to suck the first time you do anything. Expect to suck! Why do you expect to be great the first time out?

It’s not! It’ll suck! That’s the BEST!

Step #3 is, tie your self-worth to the effort, not the result.

What I want you to do is go home and then sleep and think, am I proud of my effort? Am I proud of what I did today? Am I proud of the effort that I put in today?

I want to be proud of my effort today making videos. I’m trying my best. Maybe it’s not good enough. Maybe today sucks. Awesome. But I’m trying. I’m proud of my effort. I’m proud of the attempt.

Your life will change. Your business will change. Like, every day for the next year, do something that makes you proud of your effort. In your business, in your relationship. Proud of your effort. You tried your very best today.

Your life will be dramatically different. - Evan Carmichael #Believe

  • Happiness is a choice
.
Drop the negative people and dramas in your life
.
Choose to do more activities that’ll bring you joy .
Accept yourself for who you are. Accept that there are things that are beyond your control
.
“Reflect upon your present blessings,of which every man has many, not your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.” Charles Dickens .

  • Practice self-love and be good to yourself!
.
You’re very special, there is no other person in this world like you. You deserve to be loved not only by those around you but by the most important person in your life, yourself. Practicing self-love can be challenging for many of us, especially in times when we face serious challenges.
.
Start by telling yourself positive affirmations, you can write on a piece of paper all the positive things you want to think of yourself. Read it everyday until you actually feel it. This will enhance your positive thinking 😍
