Yes, this. Completely undone
Sometimes it's the holding on that hurts the most
I have learned this the hard way
Sometimes it's the letting go, the breakdown and the complete chaos
This is so key
I am so incredibly wrong all the time
I used to let it really affect my confidence
These days, I do my best to extract the lesson
This. Yes, this.
Time and I have an ever-changing relationship
As a little girl I was not so much aware of time
In my teens I spent a lot of time...
Pretty much exactly.
I have been feeling rather confused lately.
I think I might be having a mini identity crisis.
I have been so incredibly focused...
Yes, the more I accept myself
the less I feel the need for acceptance from others
This has been a hard one for me --
but self love and self acceptance has to become a practice
Yes, yes I do. Shine bright. Every day I am reminded how challenging life is for so many of us. In my work I get thousands of emails that would shake anyone to the core.
The first time I heard the concept
of the wounded healer,
it changed my life
My whole body relaxed in the knowing
that perhaps all the pain I was in
I have been holding this quote dear to me
We can be such creatures of habit, I know I am
It's so easy to go on automatic pilot
and then wonder why...
I just love this. So much. Yes
Sometimes people I knew from many years ago
say they do not recognize me and that they never imagined
I would be doing what I do...
Yes, this. Do this. Love yourself
I will be honest, I have been extremely resistant to loving myself
It has always seemed a little cringe worthy to me
After all -- I know myself so well...
Please do. It is not selfish to care for self
I think many of us believe that if we prioritize self care
we will be seen as self involved
But here is the thing...
This. So many of us live in a silent war with self
We berate ourselves with hurtful unspoken words
and treat ourselves with continuous disregard
Oh this, so true
Respect the process
Transformation isn't always pretty
Things can get messy quickly
Remember that chaos has birthed much beauty
We cannot avoid difficulties
Life will inevitably be filled with ups and downs
You will struggle
And that is not a sign of weakness
I really want to emphasize this
Fear visits me frequently
I used to wish for a life without fear,
but I recently realized the desires I have
will require me to face fear over and over again
Yes, this. Exactly
We must learn to save ourselves
Do not wait, become your own hero
The power lies within you. It always has
It always will
So many of us put our dreams on hold,
dismiss our desires, and tell ourselves
we need to accumulate more before we are ready
I know for sure this was me...
The past does not define you
Inform you, yes
Define you, no
At least it doesn't have to
So many of us get stuck there
Stuck in a story...
One of the hardest lessons I have had to learn
I have stayed well past what I know to be good for me
and endured incredible pain ...
This is important. So important
Self love is the foundation of true and lasting personal transformation
Loving yourself is not about settling
It is about NOT making love conditional
Oh, I just love this
I have thought this many times
Tag a sister who “gets” you
These are the most precious of connections
Sometimes we take that which is...
Yes, this please
You do not know what wars are going on
down where the spirit meets the bone
I remind myself of this often.
Many a time, more than I care to admit,
I have been guilty of comparing myself to other women
and feeling so inferior in the face of another woman's radiance...
What a beautiful question
We all experience loss
People we love will leave, over and over and over again
And while I still think it is important to look at why...
This. So powerful
I don't know a person
who hasn't faced hardships, challenges, and attacks
Yes, some of us have faced the fire more than others...
Yes, this. Learned this the hard way, still learning this
Simple and true, important and necessary
So vital to be clear who you are giving ...
At just the point when our knees hit the floor
See the beauty in the breaking
Let yourself fall
Sometimes things need to...
Oh this, I needed to read this
I have been feeling terror lately
It has swelled up so intensely in my being
that I find myself breathless often
I have been tracking it and...
Simple and true
Use your challenges as fuel
It makes sense that we may wish to avoid difficulties,
but we will all inevitably experience pain
We always have the ability to choose
Even in the most grave of circumstances,
we can choose our attitude
Despite how it may feel at times,
we do have the gift of choice
