The word “NORMAL” to me,
I think it can set us up on some kind of standard that we THINK we should be in, e.g jobs, religion, money.
I’ve used this word on myself, “why aren’t I normal, like everyone else??
But it’s who we are inside, that sets us apart, and thats what makes us beautiful ❤️ A world full of differences is interesting, we can learn soo much off of each other, and that’s incredible, we should be using our differences for the better, instead of bullying and hatred.
And it doesn’t just stem from outside things,
it’s mental as well, how we view ourselves, our self worth.
Which ever way I look at it, what might be my normal, may not be yours, and that is OK 👍🏻 _____________________________________

My Dad had heart surgery today. He’s still alive. I’m grateful for the excellent care thus far and thankful he’s still with us. Big changes coming as he’s moving into long term care now. No matter what’s happened throughout our life, he’s my dad and I love him. 🤙🏼

Day 5 you dirty little devil 😈
I made the mistake of looking at my social media before I did this workout. Big mistake. HUGE! I saw how hard it was and instantly started fueling myself with doubt and failure. Um, first of all, knock it off Sarah! 🙅🏻♀️ No time for that here! But it’s done and done is better than perfect. Now to check in with my crew and see how they all did with it!!
C’est la vie! One day you’re hanging upside down on a spinning pole 💕, the next day you’re lying on the floor, couch or bed wishing to get better to get up again...Así es la vida! Un día estás colgada de cabeza girando en el pole 💞, al siguiente día estás en el piso, sillón o cama esperando estar mejor para volver a subirte otra vez...#polelife #polemom #recoveryjourney #enrecuperacion #ibendsoidontbreak #imalive
I can't help but give HIM glory when I think about my story and I know HE favored me because my enemies did try but couldn't triumph over me. Yes they did try, but couldn't triumph over me.. Today was my photoshoot for my Organization's website blog and Facebook page. They are also promoting my book entitled, "A Little Girl Named Candis" Available at #iuniverse
.com At first I was a bit nervous and uncomfortable, I mean quite a few people were watching. 🙄🙄 But then I thought about why I was doing this and how my prayers were being answered. Right here, and right now. I took a deep breath, listened to the Photographer's instructions, and just went with it! 🤪🤪 Today, I stayed in my purpose and in my process. Today, I am present, available, accountable, and oh so very grateful. This message is for all of the Black Sheep's out there, and for all of the Misfits. I want you all to know that God promotes from the PIT not the PEDESTAL!#blacksheeps #misfits #message #endoverdose #opioidepidemic #meth #fentanyl #crackcocaine #alcoholism #homelessness #seattle #love #favor #deliverance #provision #prayer #purpose #grace #mercy #hezekiahwalker #praise #Hefavoredme #photoshoot

ahhh the famous sweet potato fries, my favorite thing I’ve ever cooked up in the oven. my fam loves em and my body is literally 70% sweet potato fries. all you have to do is set the oven to 450, cut up the sweet potato however you’d like, season them with salt, pepper, and garlic salt and pour in a little bit of olive oil and throw them in for 15 minutes on one side, flip em, then leave it in for 10 more minutes, then bam. the perfect sweet potato fries 🍠😍😍🤤

I was having a moment of pure sugar withdrawal when @nataliefairbrook
and I did this interview and she coached me through it.⠀ Ya'll she's good. ⠀
Listen in as Natalie and I talk about being "too much" (or not enough). We weave Sagittarius and Scorpio into the conversation and Natalie gives us some really relevant tips for dealing with the grumpy old voice in our heads that tries to take us down (she calls it the "itty bitty shitty committee") ⠀

5 days purge free but it feels like I haven’t purged in ages... But definitely surprised myself by doing so well and giving up control... These 5 days definitely tested my willpower to its greatest but I made it through cried a lot and hated myself and everyone for motivating me to get rid of this addiction. Today my therapist gave me a meal plan from the last clinic she worked for. I already did Breakfast and Lunch right but now I have to eat two bread rolls instead of one and also snacking 3 times a day to keep my blood sugar at the same level so my metabolism can recover. She really explained it well to me and I did no snacks today because it was to much for my tummy but I also ate dinner as she said. I also went to music therapy today and it was surprisingly good. But I find the addiction group amazingly helpful even if I was the only person with an eating disorder but I felt so accepted and understood. I really opened up and it felt good to show my weakness and not the perfect facade I usually show the world.... what kinda surprised me was that today I had to sign a letter to my insurance company where the asked them to pay for me until mid April cause it’s medical necessary that I’ll stay that long. Kinda scary that they think that after one week but somehow I think I’ll stay far longer than that 🤔Anyway tomorrow I am planning to go to an outlet which is an 2 hour to get there so not really sure if I really wanna go but my therapist suggested to do something to distract me from my cravings 🤷🏻♀️ Will keep you updated 😅 Take care beautiful people ❤️ #bulimicgirl #inpatient #anorexiabingepurge #anorexicgirl #eatingdissorder #edfighter #inrecovery #edfamily #realrecovery #edgirl #recoverymeal #whatieatinaday #failureisnotanoption #freeme #fightingforlife #fuckanorexia #eatittobeatit #bulimiarecovery #bulimia #recoverywin #recoveryaccount #eatingforlife #icandothis #mentaldisorder #tryinghard #embracechange #purgefree #mealplan #recoveryjourney #inpatientrecovery
Irritable Bowel Syndrome- IBS is a chronic medical condition, but like many other conditions it is susceptible to the effects of stress, diet, sleep, and other factors that are manageable.
IBS is more than just a ‘sensitive stomach’ because the initial irritation can be part of a vicious cycle that includes greater pain and abnormal motility of the gut. In the absence of an acute illness, injury, or inflammatory process, we think of these abnormal responses as a sign of dysfunctional or dysregulated communication between the brain and gut.
Gut-directed hypnotherapy is a treatment that involves entering a relaxed and focused mental state, paired with imagery and verbal suggestions to help the person experience gut functions in a more comfortable and less distressing way.
Learning new ways of coping that decrease anxiety and stress over time can help people feel more in control and less overwhelmed by their symptoms. CBT can be especially helpful for people who feel as though they ‘plan their lives around’ IBS.

This seems to be coming up a lot in my work at the moment — the belief that success and happiness comes from sacrifice and struggle. That anything worth doing must involve willpower and discipline and self-denial. And i think struggling is so interwoven in modern life, in a system that pushes us towards busyness and productivity, that it feels like there is no other way. But there is another way. I spent years struggling — overworking, under eating, under sleeping, trying to prove my worth through self-denial and self-control and and self-sacrifice. And then i discovered the opposite of struggle — surrender. And sometimes i forget and slip back into the mode of struggle. But then i visit the ocean or watch the sunset or gaze deeply into the eyes of someone i love and remember again — i remember how much more beautiful it is, how much more powerful it is, to stop struggling to control life and simply let life flow through you ॐ.
Currently fighting off a cold - so overnight oats (aka my fav easy breakfast) is what’s happening this morning! Made with almond milk, chia seeds, raspberries, and @amazinggrass_canada
antioxidant green superfood powder (berry flavour) for an extra nutritious boost to help me kick this cold 💪🏻
//It’s always so interesting to me how much I learn about myself when someone asks how i’m doing - and really insists that I go deeper than just “i’m good!”. I realized life’s been pretty busy lately and I haven’t really been checking in with myself, so when a friend genuinely asked me the other day I was a little caught off guard. I think it finally hit me that I am struggling a bit these days. I’m going through yet another transition phase in my life, in my career, in my recovery...and transition and change can be a tough thing to manage. I’ve come to realize that my eating disorder was/is a coping mechanism that I unconsciously developed to manage my anxiety, depression, and general stress - and now that i’m actively fighting to recover from my eating disorder, it totally makes sense that my anxiety and stress and everything I was struggling with before is a lot harder to manage now. By saying “no” to my eating disorder I am taking away a major coping mechanism that i’ve been using for years - and that is HARD. I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, this recovery stuff is not easy. I’m struggling, but grateful to have supportive people in my life who never let me forget the reasons why i’m doing this. So i’ll be over here fighting this cold (bleh) and doing my best to show myself a little kindness and compassion today - and if you’re reading this I hope you do the same for yourself. 💗
CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’ OVER HERE IN THE CORNER!
Happy Friday peeps!! Hope that it is off to a great start for you!
Feeling free and happy as can be!
