I’ve been a fan of Madam C.J. Walker’s story for a long time. I went to IUPUI and walked by her namesake theatre many times. She was a marginalized woman, rising and building community through courage and generosity. Her impact on the Indianapolis community is massive and to ignore that is to miss a huge part of our history. . The facts though are these: how do we hold spaces for people and their stories. How do we empower those who are marginalized to speak their truth. How do we appreciate and never appropriate. How do we take our privilege and use it to help others. How do we hold space, respect no, and stop asking people to correct our own tunnel vision and privilege? . There is a lot going on in the yoga community both globally and even locally. There’s a lot more going on culturally and politically. I recognize my own privilege. I also recognize where I don’t have privilege. The answer remains, as our @indianapolis_cm speaker said today: we must be courageous and generous. . I’m here to hold space. I’m here to listen and evolve. I’m here to love you. I’m here to be the best ally I can be and will be doing that by shutting up, listening, and support you any way I can. I don’t want the ownership for my evolution and support to be your job, but if I need to adjust I welcome feedback. . I love you.
Hi #instagramworld ! This is me. I really like this picture of myself Thank you, @annecaseyphotography ❤️ #elainafaithphotography is my business name. I started my photography business last summer in 2017. It has been such a release for me for my #anxiety & #depression I want to let everyone out there reading this know, you are enough. You can do anything in this #life that makes you #happy . Never stop searching for your #peace of mind. Never give up even if you feel the odds are completely against you. Have #faith in yourself. 💜 And when you fall flat on your face get back up and try again. #mistakes are okay.

“Most of the shadows of life are caused by standing in our own sunshine” — Ralph Waldo Emerson . 📷: @adamjk . There will always be trolls, cynics, naysayers, and those envious of our success. But sometimes we’re our own worst critics and it can be challenging to silence the self-doubt. So much of our frustrations and disappointments are self-inflicted. We have to learn how to get out of our own way and to alter how we talk to ourselves and about ourselves. We have to stop perceiving a “lack” and rather appreciate what we already have and who we already are. “You alone are enough” (Maya Angelou). . . . . . . #selfcarematters #selfcarewarrior #youareenough #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthwarrior #selfcareeveryday #boringselfcare #mindbody #personaldevelopment #mindfulnesscoach #healthyliving #peacefulprof #selfcare #abmhappylife #mybeautifulmess #theeverydayproject #dreamersanddoers #myunicornlife #findyourhappy
Step 1. Accept yourself Step 2. Know your worth, you are enough because Christ is enough. Step 3. Realize that what people think of you is none of your business Step 4. Love yourself Step 5. Be free You were fearfully and wonderfully made by a creator who thinks you are perfect. All of you, He loves and forgives it all. Stop believing the lies you tell yourself, stop believing any lies someone else tells you. Believe the truth about who He says you are. "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:13-14 #youarebeautiful #youareworthit #youareenough #Godislove #godmadegirls
“Stunned by this weakness. Somebody else’s success has nothing to do with you. Wrap your head around that truth and execute against this truth and watch your life change.” -Gary Vee This goes for friends, family, and work colleagues. YOU ARE ENOUGH!! We’ve all been here, so let’s concentrate more on how amazing we are!!

Hi friends!! As you know, I'm super into this show called Supernatural, and really appreciate the people who work on it. One who's helped me indirectly (and many others) is Jared Padalecki. He brings light and joy to so many, and I want to give some back. So, if you'd like, you can send me relevant (positive!!) things to add to this book I'll be giving to him in May. Quotes, compliments, lyrics, important songs, etcetera! You can DM me, or email me at laurenmcintosh@live.co.uk Remember to make sure I have a name to put in for you, either an @ or a full name, or you can be anon if you so wish! Please send by April 22nd so I have time to organise and write everything. And share happiness!! #akf #alwayskeepfighting #supernaturalfamily #supernatural #spn #spnfamily #jaredpadalecki #quotes #onlylove #youareenough #yana #youarenotalone #spnuk
Radical crazy ideas‼️. . 🌸Our bodies have been regulating our weights, shapes, & functions since the dawn of humanity. We didn’t have the concept of a calorie or exercise for weight loss before the last 100 years. The concept of a “goal weight,” or people being able to weigh themselves, is pretty freaking new. . 🌸We also didn’t have millions and millions of ED-sufferers throughout human history. We didn’t have millions more people who, although outside the realm of clinical eating disorders, spent significant amounts of mental and physical energy thinking about, worrying about, and planning how to maintain their weight. . 🌼 MAYBE our bodies actually know how to do this stuff. . 🌼 MAYBE interfering with our internal weight regulation mechanisms has just taken over our mental space and made us obsessive and limited our ability to care about things that actually matter. 🌼 MAYBE bodies are supposed to look different and you can actually trust (!!) your own body to get to the place that it’s happiest. 🌼MAYBE that place will look different than how you imagined it, or then how the people around you look, or then how you thought you would look when you were “recovered”. . 🌼Maybe it’s time to give it a try. . . . . . . . . #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bopo #edwarrior #food #bebodypositive #loveyourself #youareenough #dietssuck #dietculturesucks #bodyposi #beyourself #loveyourbody #youarebeautiful #eatingdisorderrecovery
Let this serve as a tiny reminder today that you can still feel, you are here and you’re going to be okay #alive #itsgoingtobeokay #reminder 📷@pimfeels
Eek!! I’m feeling all the feels right now. . . I haven’t shared this with you yet, but at the end of June Micah and I are heading to Indianapolis for an incredible conference. I’m beyond excited to soak up tons of new information, learn and to meet up with some of our favourite people! 👯‍♀️ . . I’ve been so swept up in the exciting whirlwind of checking out flights, accommodations and things to do, that it just sunk in today that we are actually able to afford to go. . . Y’all I haven’t shared about this very much, but last year at this time Micah and I were struggling financially. Like we had $3.00 in our bank account. . . We were stressed to the max, freaked out about where our rent money was going to come from and it was taking a toll on our relationship. . . Being full time students there’s only so many hours you can actually go to work at a job and even that can become really stressful and very busy. . . If you’ve been following my story for a while you probably know that I started health and wellness coaching not too long ago. It has been the perfect solution to our busy student lifestyle 🙌🏻 . . I can work at it in the cracks of time I have in my day - a little bit when I wake up in the morning, in between classes and at night before I go to bed! . . So today when I opened my bank account and saw that I had gotten paid I couldn’t help but feel so grateful for this opportunity which is helping us travel more, has helped strengthen our relationship and give us more time together. . . My heart is so full right now and I’m excited for what’s to come on our journey. But, I also know that so many other people, and students in particular are in the same situation we were in. That’s why I’m sharing this with you. Because you can do this too and turn your dreams into reality! . . If any of this spoke to you or you’re curious about what I do, shoot me a message! I’d love to talk to you about this amazing opportunity that has totally changed our lives 💜
“Mama, does food make you grow?” . “Well yes, Bub. It's why we need to eat good, healthy food. To grow big & strong” . “Does it make you fat?” . He was sitting on the edge of my bed. We were talking, as we always do before bedtime; about his day, the best part, who he played with, what he learned, how he was kind. . I could FEEL the weight of his words hanging in the air. . Grasping for a little more time, I said “Well…what do you think, kiddo?” He had a shy little look come across his face & said “Mama- I just don’t want to be fat.” . You guys. These words were HEAVY. With my history of an eating disorder, I am overly cognizant of the words I use to describe our bodies. You will never hear me bashing my belly rolls, cellulite, butt or thighs in front of him. . Instead, I use words like strong, healthy, grow & muscles. Every morning I tell him how much he’s grown, how strong he looks & how long his legs are. He sees me workout & will join in. Flexing; proud of his strength & body. Similarly, I do not put an emphasis on “good” or “bad” foods. Or place a stigma around food groups that make him feel bad about his food choices. . I’m not sure where he's gathered the concept of being “fat”. The idea that fat has a negative connotation & when we have fat we are “bad”. On the same note, I never want him to think he needs to restrict food in order to be good enough. . As the single mama of a little boy, it’s twofold. We want to teach our children to love their body from an early age. That having FAT is not bad- nor is it a word we use to hurt feelings; including our own. I also REFUSE to raise a man who does not respect women or their bodies. Who sees them as objects & treats my future daughter in law the way I was. It just will not happen. . "Bubba," I said "Having fat on our bodies is not BAD. It helps protect our organs & keep us safe. Some people have more than others & that is OK. It doesn't make them bad. Food is fuel for your body. Like the gas & oil you put in your cars & diggers. You want the best so you can play hard & have a strong body that lasts a long time. . He smiled, wrapped his arms around my neck & gave me a kiss. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻continued in comments
There will be times when someone/something will make you feel inadequate. But always remember you are the Child/Creation of the most HIGH. HE makes no mistake. You Are Enough #justthewayyouare #iamenough #youareenough #iaminspiration
It doesn't matter how old you are, what your habits have BEEN, what has knocked you down before... Every day we have the chance to DO IT NOW! To move forward with dignity and hope and courage. Will you? #GetInspired #DoItNow #WomenInspiringWomen
I think we all feel like this sometimes, but when a girl or woman feels like this most of the time it breaks my heart. I've been there. I used to feel so ugly that I felt bad for people when they had to talk to look at me as they talked to me. Healing is possible. And when you love and accept yourself just as you are, everything changes in beautiful ways.

My experience [see last post] wasn’t just a “me” problem. It’s something at least 30 million people in the US (and 1.25 million people in the UK experience). . 🌼Thousands of people on Instagram document their experiences with food, exercise, diet culture and what led them down the dangerous path to an eating disorder. When millions of people are affected by the same messages and develop the same symptoms and disorders, the problem isn’t individual—it’s cultural. . 🌼When following proscribed “healthy advice” can lead so seamlessly into life-threatening eating disorders, for MILLIONS of people, we have to ask ourselves if there’s something wrong with the way our society talks about weight, fat, food, and health. . 🌼To the people struggling with EDs right now—it’s not a you problem. Our culture is so inculcated with diet messages, moral dictates about food, and weight-loss-at-all-costs mentality that if something in your genes/biology/personality predisposes you be vulnerable to EDs... well...🤷‍♀️ 🤦‍♀️ . . . . . . . #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bopo #edwarrior #food #bebodypositive #loveyourself #youareenough #dietssuck #dietculturesucks #bodyposi #beyourself #loveyourbody #youarebeautiful #eatingdisorderrecovery

What did you see, my darling young one? I saw two separate lives in 2 separate photos I saw, “I love you, daddy, I promise” and “do you still love me, mommy?” I saw a sprinkle, a sample, a taste of what helps me on those dark days; words from those who’ve gone before me and earthly rocks that have been crushed and formed and chiseled for their benefit. I saw medicine from thriving plants; little reminders from deep in the soil that I’m planted, not buried. I saw the world - actually it was a globe but for the romantic that I am it might as well be the world. I saw good things today and it was clear, even with a mild astigmatism, that waaaay in the distance there is usually a hummingbird doing hummingbird things. - - - - #thierrylasry #eatingdisorderrecovery #communication #personalgrowth #heartandhustle #essentialoils #ihavethisthingwithpink #acolorstory #tellthetruth #naturalmedicine #cultivatewhatmatters #raiseyourvibration #personaldevelopment #gracenotperfection #liveempowered #youareenough #itiswellwithmysoul #doterra #truthbombs #liveauthentic #thankyougod #coredesiredfeelings #bravingthewilderness

Moms: we have a tendency to be our own biggest critic. We spend countless hours worrying about whether we are good enough. We evaluate and re-evaluate all of our parenting decisions on a daily basis and wonder if we are doing it right, or if we are screwing it all up. We read articles upon articles and books upon books about parenting. We invest so much time and energy on trying to be the very best mom we can be just to feel like we haven’t done enough. The simple fact is: the very fact that you do worry... means that you are already enough. You are more than enough. #motherhood #momlife #momspiration #youareenough #mommy #raisingaqueen #parenthood #parenting #momsofinstagram #parentsofinstagram #momquotes #parentingishard

Seemed like a fun and uplifting message for the day. There is a difference between waiting for something to happen and having patience for the steps to present themselves. Waiting is continuous hopefulness... giving some power away.. hope is nice and we need it at times don’t get me wrong. Patience is having faith that it will alllllll work out in the way it is meant to so keep moving forwards. Taking that leap, taking the risks, failing and succeeding along the way. That light 💡 at the far end of the tunnel... it’s an illusion. We don’t have to move in darkness, the light is right where we are and it’s what is guiding us to move closer and closer to what we wish to achieve or feel... so keep moving and light your life up 🙌☀️🌻 #encourage #inspire #empower #beyou
