Learning to appreciate your relationship with yourself and understand how to love yourself is what must come first. In the end, we need to be healthy in all aspects of our life if we are ever alone. We are all we have at the end of each day so care for your mind and body each day.
I used to only take face selfies, avoiding capturing any part of my body if at all possible. I dreamed of being comfortable in my body and with how I looked but only felt like I was allowed to feel that way if I lost weight. That's exactly how it played out, the more weight I lost the more confidence I gained and the more I showed my body appreciation. I wish I gave myself permission to love my body, no matter how it looked. I can shoulda, coulda, woulda all day about my past mindsets but all I can really do is move forward and try to be better later in life. I won't always be the size I am at this moment and I might not like it, but I refuse to hate my home again.
Anyway, happy Saturday y'all. Give yourself permission to love yourself, push past whatever barrier you feel makes you unworthy and LOVE YOURSELF!

Looks like a super boring salad BUT underneath that crispy srirachay lecttuce is a bed of fluffy, lemon couscous and mixed vegetables. Topped it off with a @vivavivera
steak (they’re on sale I gotta make the most) and a side of rice cakes with a side dip of hummus. It was epic. Pictures suck.
Reasonably productive day. Stretched and rowed at the gym, got some work done before and after, ate a delicious doughnut and now heading to the bf’s to chill with some friends and grabbing a subway on the way.
Have a great night flumps
Are you counting the days,
making the days count?
I’m a “always waiting for the other shoe to drop” kind of person. I’m not sure where I learned it or who taught me to be that way, but I can remember thinking like this ever since I was a kid. Not letting me get my hopes up about school, crushes, plans. Always expecting something to go wrong, because it was safe. At least if it went sideways, I would have expected it and therefore prepared. The blow would be less (in theory). At least, I would have been right!
I realized I still do this as an adult only in the last few years. It takes conscious effort, choosing to be a different way to shift the energy inside me for the possibility that something great could happen today. #realtalk
But making the choice is empowering and completely shifts my day. Mindset is everything.

It’s Hard To Be Happy If You Continue To Hold Onto Things That Make You Sad
A collection of life tips:
- Share the best parts of you with the world
- discover what you are about. Hold onto that, but evolve go be better
- you're not always right. That's a good thing
- likewise, you're not always wrong. Appreciate that
- care about what you think matters
- follow the advice of others for inspiration
- be kind. Be your best self. Be who you do and don't want to be.
- know that you're important and have significance in this world
- work hard for what you want. Get what you deserve
- put yourself into scary situations
- always try to understand the other side
- stop worrying about how you look
- accept that you can't be perfect - cry when you need to cry, smile when you don't expect
- be a good person (whatever that means)
- make yourself happy
- be okay with being alone
I’ve been working hard to be okay with the fact that I will be alone Thanksgiving week, but I’m not okay. Depression and anxiety has been piling up in the form of #insomnia
, keeping overbusy, and #deathwithdignity
promises for the far future.
It does hurt to my core that nobody has invited me to join them. It makes me feel so easily forgotten. It would have been wonderful for someone to think, “Hey, Sophia just got diagnosed with a debilitating disease and suddenly put into a wheelchair and there’s no family to support her. Maybe she shouldn’t be alone for the holidays.” But that’s not this story. That’s not this year.
This is a year of more bad than good. Of so many bads, so intensely that the paltry few goods barely matter.
This is a year to live in hell. A trapped under glass year. A scream all you want, you’re invisible and no one cares year.
A year where even God has forgotten me. (No advice please. This isn’t for sympathy, but to represent the reality of #depression
, and #disability
FYI I called the #suicide
prevention crisis line this summer and they put me on hold for so long I had to hang up.)
1. I have chronic migraines. •
2. I take medication in the morning and at night as a preventative but it’s not a cure.
3. I have abortive medication but it doesn’t always work. Sometimes you “miss the window” and you just have to wait it out. •
4. I have symptoms of my migraines sometimes days before an attack, it’s called prodrome and usually for me it includes muscle stiffness and irrationality. After an attack which is called postdrome I get very tired and depressed and I want be alone. •
5. My doctor found that I sometimes have simple partial seizures in my sleep which can trigger migraines. •
6. I miss work, time with family, friends due to my migraines which makes me feel very guilty. •
7. I have a lot of anxiety after I have a migraine that another is coming. •
8. I am not unreliable, my health is. •

Fall and winter are always difficult when it comes to mental health. For someone who loves soaking up hours of sun, the time change and early nights really takes a toll. It’s hard not to want to crawl in bed and stay there. My mood constantly changes and I don’t feel like myself. So it’s important to take time for yourself even if it takes you an hour to convince yourself to get dressed and leave the house.
Today the sun is shining and I’ve put “real clothes” and makeup on for the first time in what feels like forever. I’m grabbing a latte and hitting the salon. Do I need to wear knee high boots to get my hair cut and run errands? Well, no. But DAMN it feels good. 💁🏻♀️ ❤️

Hi, I'm Hannah.
Right now I'm a psychiatric patient for the second time thanks to my struggle with Borderline Personality Disorder (among other things).
I've spent the first 24 years of my life being chronically irritable and coping with constant suicidal thoughts and behaviors. I've finally had enough.
I've hit rock bottom. I can't work, I had to take a leave of absence from my Master's Degree, and I'm struggling to hold onto the good things in my life.
I'm here to show you what recovery is really like. I'm here to show you that there is more to mental Illness than depression and anxiety.
I'm sharing the good, the bad, and then ugly of crawling myself out of the dark hole that is BPD.
Give me a follow if you want some inspiration, knowledge, or to have someone to move through your own recovery with. We are all in this together. 💪
The human brain is so powerful that the technology industry is trying to make artificial intelligence exactly like the human brain. We're not even close to use the full capacity of our brain, and what I see is a lot of people trying to use less and less their mind.
People who know the power of the mind live an authentic life, they make concious decisions and create the results they want on purpose.
How amazing is that?!
My job as a coach is to guide and teach you how toanage your mind, so you can live a conscious and authentic life creating the results you want. Find your answers inside you and use the potential of your mind. Evolution of the mind! Super powerful!
Are you up to it?
