Just so ya know... it’s ok to have repeats. I could be grateful for my fiancé, coffee, and dark chocolate for the rest of my life, and it would be 👌

Little late for #nationalpuppyday , but I don't care! I'm still gonna share! These beautiful, sweet souls have taught me so much. Each and every day I learn acceptance, presence, awareness, joy, forgiveness, and unconditional love from each of them. Each one has their own personality and little quirks that make them unique. Each one came into my life at just the right time. Each one shows me that we are all connected and animals are just like us. Each one reminds me that I must be compassionate, loving, and kind towards all living beings. I hope you have the opportunity to love another animal, whether it be dog, cat, horse, rat, elephant, bird, or any other creature that may come into your life. If you open your heart, they will open theirs. May all beings be happy, peaceful, and free. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #unconditionallove #lovingkindness #compassion #animalsarefriendsnotfood #dogsofinstagram ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Boomer is pictured first, then Zen, and lastly (the newest member of the family) is Samson.
Berries are so sensual to me. I’m not sure why. Or, I’m not sure the exact reason; because of course there are a multitude of ways they’re sensual. I did write a whole series of poems on the sensuality of fruits and plants, after all. But mostly, berries remind me of summer and being alive and feeling like the world is an exciting canvas of possibilities for your own pleasure and desires. All of this, in a bowl of berries.
When we yearn for connection with others, we wish for them to see us- everything that makes us who we are, the stuff we like and the stuff we’re afraid to show. There’s still the little voice within us that says See me please and love me. We also want to be heard- by our therapists, our partners, our family, our friends, our colleagues, and of ourselves. We also want to be chosen. We want someone else to see and hear us for all we are, and still make the conscious choice to choose us everyday. We also innately want to choose ourselves too. The price is to hefty not to. ▫️ ▫️ This isn’t about being selfish. This is about being self care. Love of Self. Centered self. I really believe these are 3 of the biggest things we desire in others and also ourselves. Otherwise, we begin to feel invisible, unheard, and unworthy. ▫️ ▫️ #beingheard #beingseen #seeyourself #chooseyourself #selfcare #relationships #beingchosen #seeyou #loveyourself #lovingkindness #livemindfully #couples #empathy #compassion #mentalhealth #psychotherapy #psychology #lmft #counseling #depression #anxiety #attachment #invisible #worthy #therapistsofinstagram
If you find yourself dealing with a situation as small as sugar in the kitchen, to one as large as needing to head separate ways in a relationship, remember justice and mercy. Make every decision out of loving kindness towards the other and it will lead you down a much more peaceful path. Justice + Mercy ❤️ Strawberries 🍓 + Sugar Loving kindness matters far more than we often realize❣️ A reminder for you over on the blog today 👆🏼
If ever you feel isolated in your work, unsure, uncertain, remember how true it is that you are not alone. The healing of organic, human organisms is part of the growth patterns of all living beings in the universe. And you, healer, are never alone in your efforts. You are contributing one important piece of healing and light among an entire community of healers near and far.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #healingforhealers #compassion #compassionsatisfaction #burnoutprevention #selfcare #acceptance #connection #psychotherapy #psychology #socialwork #therapy #therapist #psychotherapist #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthishealth #mindfulness #meditation #worklifebalance #balance #love #practiceandalliscoming #practicedaily #psychiatry #rejuvenation #health #lovingkindness

Yin Yoga for Spring! . Spring is an amazing time for Yin yoga! . You may be wondering why I'm suggesting Yin right now instead of one of the more vigorous yoga practices that you might be craving. . It's true that any movement is good right now, especially if you're anything like me & tend to hibernate through the winter. . Yin yoga is especially good right now because it works on the tendons & sinews in the body (also called your fascia or connective tissue - so many names for the same thing!). . In Chinese medicine, it is thought that Spring time is associated with the Liver energy within the body (note I said Liver energy & not the liver 😉). The Liver energy in Chinese medicine is said to control the free flow of Qi (aka vitality) throughout the body. The Liver energy is also said to control the sinews & tendons within the body. . Our sinews (fascia/connective tissue) cover & interconnects everything within our bodies. . To help your Qi (vitality) move within the body, working with & stretching the sinews (fascia) is crucial! . The reason that having Qi (vitality) flow freely is so important is because it alleviates pain. . "Where there is pain, there is no free flow; where there is free flow there is no pain." ~ Chinese proverb . From a very simplistic view, we experience pain when our bodies get stuck or our Qi (vitality) isn't moving within a certain area of the body. . Getting out & getting some gentle movement into your day is a great way to help alleviate stiffness & pain. As it helps to move our Qi. . Occasionally, we need a little help to alleviate pain and stiffness we are experiencing. This is where practices like Yin yoga, cupping and Chinese medicine can be extremely beneficial! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Along with limbering up our bodies, Yin yoga also has the added bonus of limbering minds! . Do you have questions about Yin yoga, cupping or Chinese medicine? Drop me a line in the comments below. I’d love to hear from you! . Post: Andrea Photo credit: Kevin Empey

Kodo Sawaki (1880-1965) was considered one of the most prominent Zen priests of the modern era. He was credited with bringing the practice of Zazen out of the temple and into the messy lives of everyday people. In his quote here, he speaks of the nature of our breath as containing everything within it, both with the inhale and with the exhale. The point is to focus so intently on the breath that all of our attachments begin to loose, and we can begin to experience things simply as they are, without the incessant commentary of our egos filter being overlaid on everything. The result is diminished suffering and increased joy. 📿📿📿📿📿📿📿 #mindful #compassion #metta #humanity #lovingawareness #lovingkindness #truth #wisdom #mindfulness #prayer #meditation #contemplation #kodosawaki #zazen
It’s easy to want absolute happiness and joy for our children. What if we take that same loving kindness and apply it everyone in our life? Our coworkers, friends or even strangers? When we practice this regularly, we are showing our children that compassion and well wishing for others is a powerful foundation of daily living. #mettaworldpeace #metta #lovingkindness #meditation #conciousparenting #teachkindness #mindfulparenting #mindfulness #mindful #mindfullife #mindfulnessmeditation

☀️25 participants felt a sense of warmth and calm during our Spring Cleanse Meditation this past Saturday. 😌 🌸GEBIS Charlottetown provided a space to rest and nurture as facilitator Anna guided them through breathing, body scan, visualization and loving-kindness meditation. 💞 . . 🧘‍♂️This helped participants tap into their emotions, and heightened their awareness of the sensations of their body and the movement within their mind. One participant said how the guided meditation practice made it easier for her to focus. 🧘‍♀️ . . . #focus #gebis #spring #cleanse #bodyscan #meditation #awareness #visualization #lovingkindness

Just a reminder to surround yourself with people who love and support you and to also not judge others or try and take em down. When you dont like something in somebody it's because you see it in yourself • That one was hard to bite at first but its true • Practice #lovingkindness every. Single. Day🙏
Supta Baddha Konasana (reclining bound angle pose) - releases tension in hips, groin, inner thighs, knees, low back and psoas muscles. Beneficial for relieving menstrual cramps, improves digestion, calms the mind and reduces stress. We started off our day at @vibesyogaretreats with a vigorous vinyasa flow, some restorative poses, and a scrumptious breakfast of crepes, eggs, melon and pineapple (fresh and local, of course!). Next on today’s retreat schedule:swimming in the pool, lunch, zip lining, more yoga, dinner and quiet time 🌞🙏🏽✌🏼🐒🦋🐠🌴🌺🌊🥥🍍🍌 #playacarrillo #costarica #puravida #vibesyogaretreats #suptabaddhakonasana #recliningboundanglepose #yoga #playa #playacarrillo #bellydance #flow #plantbasedfood #inspiration #healing #renew #revitalize #release #dance #mindfulmovement #yogadancefitness #loveyourself #lovingkindness #prioritizeplay #prioritizeyourself #makedreamsreality #getoutofyourrut #travel #adventure #breathe #vinyasa
Your story matters; the whole beautiful, glorious, hideous-messy, wonderful, painful, successful, embarrassing, heart-wrenching loss of it, and... the every single itty bitty wholehearted gain. It all matters! YOU are woven deeply and undeniably into the fabric of a universe that is of unfathomable importance and astounding consequence. . Do not give up. Keep breathing. I want my breath to mingle with yours somewhere within this vast collection of multiple galaxies.
Been a hard four days of self sabotage 💔 so I’ve just been out for an epic wildcrafting session after talking to my lovely sister... sometimes mirrors are the best medicine.

Sometimes we as people don’t know what to say to someone who is dying or don’t know what to say to someone losing their loved ones. We feel like just being there isn’t enough but I have found that sometimes you don’t have to say much at all and that just being there is enough and to practice active listening and fully be present and be mindful of your own stuff coming up✨♥️ What are some things people have said to you that you found comforting and tender when you were grieving? ♥️✨
Give some away today!!! 🧡Mercy has been defined as receiving what we do not deserve and withholding what we do deserve.🧡 . 1. Mercy means being patient with people's quirks. 2. Mercy means helping anyone you know who is hurting. 3. Mercy means giving people a second chance. 4. Mercy means doing good to those who hurt you. 5. Mercy means being kind to those who offend you. 6. Mercy means building bridges of love to difficult people. 7. Mercy means valuing relationships over rules . #valueothers #lovingkindness #knowyourworthy #abundancemindset #royaltyisinyou #mindsetbuilder #cbdishere #changinglivesdaily #blessedtobeablessing
CANAAN, NY Earlier in the day we went on a walk, and my mom pointed out this weird way the ice had frozen. Very geometric, and also very interesting next to the way the reflections of the trees in the water seem to squiggle in the photo.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 . . #Nebraska #Anabaptist #Mennonite #Jesus #forgiveness #grace #lovingkindness
CANAAN, NY 5 x 7 Dusk is harder to paint sometimes, but I’m mesmerized by the gradation from the tippy top of the sky all they way down— it can encompass 100 hues at any moment. This was a quick postcard I did from my car upstate last weekend.

BROOKLYN, NY Pink skies are my thing. I often go to my rooftop to take in the twilight colors of the day. This is last night. Rosey, yellowy, lavender goodness.

Support networks are strong. I don't know where I would be without my guy. ❤️ Who puts up with my adhd on a daily basis and supported me in getting my diagnosis for two years. A healthy relationship is loving, caring and self giving. Without being too self critical, when I was a teenager I was self centered and everything was about me and how I felt. I still can be like that but now I want to make someone else as happy as they make me. I worry and support their growth and happiness. Check on them, ask how their day is. Have they taken a break today? Encourage self care and taking time out for themselves. There is that perfect balance of taking care of yourself, enough to take care of someone else. Don't do too much either way.

Marbled surfaces and decor have been extremely popular over the last few years, in everything from countertops to table tops, clothing and jewellery. While sophisticated, authentic marble or stone can be very costly, especially for decorative items. Here is a REALLY simple DIY (and kid-friendly!) to make marble-inspired coasters. It takes minutes, yes, minutes, and would make a really cool Mother's Day or Spring craft. For this project, you'll need a package of plain coasters. I found this 4 pack of cork coasters at the dollar store. You'll also need an acrylic plate (3 colours) and a paper plate or aluminium tray. That's it. For full instructions, visit my blog, link in profile. #simplysuppa

@laurajaneillustrations We are resilient. You are strong. What the human mind can withstand is incredible, but on the days we can't and have to take a break we best ourselves up. It is okay to take a break. There are days I have where I just can't face going to work or seeing anyone, and I have to remember that this will pass. I haven't let anyone down. I haven't let myself down. I'm just taking a break. Would I say the same to a friend who had stayed home? Absolutely not. Be kind to yourself like you would a friend. For we are our own worst critic. . . . . . . . . . . #itsok #itsokaynottobeokay #itsokay #itsokaytonotbeokay #youwillbeokay #okayday #adultadhd #adhd #attentiondefecitdisorder #adhdblog #adhdisreal #adhdgirls #womenwithambition #adhdsupport #baddays #happinessproject #bekindtoyourself #selftalk #selfgrowth #forgiveness #forgiveyourself #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthquotes #quotesdaily #kindnessquotes #lovingkindness #selfcareaccount #selfconfidence
When you say “no” to anything that does not bring you joy you have time to do the things you really love. . For me that looks like repainting old furniture and transforming my space. .

Loving kindness... . I seek not to possess you but hope to watch you grow. I hope to watch you flourish. I wish you great abundance. May your wealth triplicate. . I do not keep score. I do not hope you will save me from my struggles. When you turn away, I do not seek revenge on you for a perceived abandonment or betrayal. . I marvel at your beauty. I do not hold you close to me in fear, but in tender appreciation with the recognition that you will indeed go off and live your biggest dreams. . I want the world for you. I wish for you a life full of deep, meaningful connections that help you to feel strong and a sense of belonging and purpose. . I want health and happiness for you. .

Even though we are on Spring Break from school this week, I’m up bright and early to get the final April box t-shirt order over to the printer, etc! We might need to make a Dunkin’ run this morning!

Ahhh, Lao Tzu
“If you know how to embrace your anger, something will change.” -Thich Nhật Hanh ⁣ ⁣ The practice of taking care of our anger or other strong emotions starts with compassionate awareness. We develop that capacity by sitting with what feels uncomfortable or awkward without running away from it. ⁣ ⁣ Just for today see what it’s like if you allow yourself to feel challenging emotions. ⁣ ⁣ ❤️❤️More on the practice of transforming strong emotions in my video on Friday.
