I want to tell you a story about pain.⠀
Nearly ten years ago I hated myself. Over so many years of habitually subscribing to such negative beliefs about my Body and my Self, those emotions - ie energy in motion - calcified deeply in my body.⠀
I have not been caught in the throes of the nightmare that is an active eating disorder in almost a decade.⠀
And yet, today, amidst the flow of a hip opening vinyasa class, tears arrived.
They made their presence known gradually as my body flowed. For the last third of class I fully opened myself to feeling this wave of sadness. I allowed myself to meditate on the hurt, conscious of how it impacted my youth, my body, my family, my soul. How I had hurt God deeply by believing so fully that I was not enough, the way He made me.
Healing is not linear. It does not make sense, per se. True healing takes time, just as autumn leaves turn slowly to colour, and fall, so our body responds to new beliefs and the ever nourishing influence of love.⠀
I am writing this so, you, dear reader, know that you are not alone in your healing. Whatever our reasons are for committing to a better relationship with our body, make space for these nonsensical timelines.⠀
Hold that space fast like a life raft. With this most potent tool in hand, give yourself the gift of patience, understanding and compassion.⠀
Without fully bearing witness to what has held us back, our body can keep us locked in past emotion, long transpired.
Sink into the understanding that feeling the very pain we strive to avoid is our own personal gateway for what’s to come. On the other side of these feelings we avoid, lies pure Joy.
Today’s writing prompt/ reminder during my journaling/ self reflection time.
Doubt becomes powerful when you start to give in to all the negatives around you. It happens when you stop focusing on all that you’re capable of and how great you are instead you start to compare yourself to the lies and rumors out there.
All of that negative energy weighs you down to where you can’t rise above the madness leaving you at the bottom where your enemies want you to stay.
Forget all that! Focus on you...so you can remain free from those demons.
Can’t believe I started letting all this craziness get to me. I started to doubt myself like crazy and was totally insecure and unsure to the point of being loyal to ppl who could care less about me and what’s best for me.
S/o to my boo @_nathan_ngo_
for the life raft and slapping me back into reality. Real friends have the hard conversations that hurt your feelings but free you in the end!

On the right, we have Volume 7 of the dream journal saga, which is now complete. After skimming through it yesterday, I was floored by how much insight I had, months before the knowledge itself was applicable to any situation in my life. There’s a lot of personal struggle, and a lot of conversations between different aspects of myself, all of whom needed to come forth and present themselves. This was a challenging chapter; it took me nearly a year and a half to finish, but it’s done. Volume 7 was about actually listening to myself, and recognizing that the various splinters and fragments of your mind serve a purpose that needs to be honored. To listen to them is to integrate them into your whole being, and to bring yourself into greater alignment. On the right, we have the newest addition: Volume 8. I saw it at Barnes and Noble and my heart screamed for me to take it ‘cause dragons are fucking awesome. So let’s see what this piece brings out of me 😌🙏🏼 #happysaturday #selflove #selfworth #selfacceptance #mentalhealth #higherself #journaling #writing #writinginspiration #seriously #ifuckinglovedragons
Today’s Couples Brunch was:
You couples inspire the heck out of us!
These brunches were starting one year ago, but it feels like they are just getting started.
It only takes 7% of a population to create real cultural change- and together and we can create a ripple affect of how couples thrive together!
See you all in June & August! Much love to you all,
I've really struggled with perfectionism as a student and especially as a musician. I was hampered by feelings of falling behind and being not good enough. I have been trapped in an endless cycle of comparison, self deprecation, and insecurity.
I'm still learning to accept and appreciate where I am now and especially where I came from. Not too shabby for a military brat who never had private lessons prior to college and that's not even counting how fortunate I am to still be playing after my car accident.
I'm thankful for the everyone that helped me come so far and those who continue to inspire me.
Can you hear the echo!?!!
Every day is a chance to make a difference. Don’t waste it. •

As difficult as it is to accept that someone may not be good for you because you love them, it is the better to let them be who they are and allow yourself the opportunity to move forward and find what your heart deserves. We find someone at the worst times of our lives and they’re placed in our path to remind us of how special we are. How capable we are of loving. Once we have attained that understanding, they move on and it’s okay. Remember how beautiful those moments were and if you love them set them free. They also need to find their special someone too.
The only opinion that matters.
The only factor that decides whether you can or cannot do something is what you believe it about.
I’ve never really shared this on here but I am huge sports fan.
Off all the sports.
It inspires me. The things that atheletes achieve out of pure will and determination.
Lebron James last night at the age of 33 played 46 minutes of basketball in an a game that most experts say they should not have won.
Most would say he shouldn’t be able to play 46 minutes of NBA basketball at age 33.
But you know who believes he can win?
Who believes that he can play for 46 minutes?
Lebron James does.
and that’s all that fucking matters.
He believes and he does it.
Over and over and over.
He has been in the NBA finals 6 consecutive years.
It’s not an accident, it’s not a game of chance.
It’s about will and determination.
It’s about an unflinching belief in himself.
Do you believe in yourself the way Lebron James believes in himself?
PS Lebron I know you’re on a social media black out, cuz basketball, but I wanted to say thank you, sincerely this basketball loving girl.

STOP getting in your own way!
Too often my lack of success in any given endeavor was impacted by my own self-deprecation.
One of my main intentions for the rest of this year is to step fully into my power and capability.
I encourage you to do the same!
Have you ever felt like a failure or like you haven’t lived up to expectations? This week’s Sentinel magazine has a wonderful article written just for you. It’s titled, “Our natural ability to succeed at good” by Carol Rounds. She states, “God needs us to express Him, to make evident what He is and that He is All. If we understand that we come from God and express God, then we can never really be limited.” If you would like a copy of the article I’m happy to send you one.
