It’s actually not social media’s fault 〰️ It’s our relationship with it. It’s the fact that likes and followers have become our new yardstick for self-worth. It’s the fact that people can trick you into thinking you’re viewing their real life when it’s actually ‘highlight reel life’. (Or a flattering filter.) .... You guys; your favourite Instagram influencer eats, shits and sleeps just like you do. They definitely have days where they feel emotionally depleted and worthless too. It’s only you that is putting them on a pedestal and, equally it’s you that can choose not to .... Social media doesn’t show you the reality of the 16 year old girl sitting at home posting a photo and then taking it down 20 minutes later when it doesn’t get enough likes .... Social media doesn’t show the declining mental health of our men who are also feeling inadequate .... Social media doesn’t show you the entrepreneur who is about to give up on her dreams because she’s being trolled .... Social media doesn’t show you the troll who trolls because she was bullied at school 〰️ But it’s not social media’s fault 〰️ It’s ours for measuring our worth on what a stranger thinks of us online. It’s ours for using social media as a form of escapism because we don’t want to feel whatever painful emotion has surfaced. It’s ours for curating our feed with people who we allow to make us feel less than. It’s ours for comparing our physical form to someone else’s which has been digitally altered to eliminate all flaws. It’s ours for searching for an outlet to attribute blame that is outside of ourselves. It’s ours for continuing to say how much we hate social media but not setting boundaries around our useage 〰️ We need to change our relationship with social media 〰️ I’ve met some of my best friends, my business partner, and most inspirational people via social media. I’ve had some of the most touching, heartfelt messages
What is it you enjoy with the intention of purely enjoying? ⇞ Where can you redirect the intention in your life towards enjoyment, perhaps even in the moments that aren’t plainly so? ⇞ The more you enjoy the moment you’re in, the more opportunities you’ll find hooked. It’s the law of attraction - high vibe attracts high vibe. ⇞ The world lines these up for you the moment you relax, let go of the expectation of your “catch,” and learn to love where you’re at, no matter where that is. This could very well could be an uncomfortable place - ie. hooking the tree behind you - however I PROMISE you it’s only uncomfortable because you are learning and growing. Be aware of this always. ⇞ It’s a practice in THAT. Awareness, learning, enjoying. ⇞ I try to do this when I’m getting my car fixed, in commutes to work, in the most stressful of moments. I look for a color I love, remind myself of how cozy the scarf or sweater I have on is, tune into how a turn really FEELS on snow without labeling it as good or bad. Use your senses! We for sure have 5 of them ;) The parallels to life are infinite and oh so simple, they’re everywhere! What are yours? ⇞ Photo inspired by friends!! @forresthruthetrees // @rewikstrom ⇞ #peace#fishing#living#highvibes#noexpectations#lawofattraction#mindset#flyfishing#manfiestyourcatch#beherenow#enjoytheride#intention#tightlines#alignment#thecommonstitch#doodlephore#sketch#draw

Sometimes we overcomplicate things for ourselves unnecessarily. We think things have to be more difficult than they are. We think we have to work hard for something to earn it or appreciate it. Perhaps it’s a habit. We picked it up from other people as the modus operandi for how to live. . Perhaps it’s tiring and expending energy that could be better used elsewhere in our life. Does everything have to be such an effort? . Step away from the ego struggle and into ease and flow. . Who wants an easy life?! Or it that cheating?
What better way is there to cultivate stability in your life than to experience it within your very own vessel of a body? • What better way is there to persue balance than creating it with your very own two feet? • Technically, there is so much wrong with my alignment in this posture. The goal is not to perfect the posture but rather to embrace the small potential of growth and strength, each time I choose to practise it. And each time, checking in more deeply to the microcosm functioning of my joints and tissues and muscles and cells and nerves and thoughts and feelings - and how they all flow together to create our reality. 🤸 To witness to the way my body feels every single day. To notice to subtle changes, shifts, micro movements and sensations - that is the goal! 💃 To build an extremely intimate relationship with my self - physically, emotionally, mentally and wholey - so that I know my every need in every moment for creating a balanced Bioscience field for myself - that is the goal! 🌬️ #breathbrainbelly#bioneuroemotion#bioscience#ayurvedalifestyle#ayurvedalife#ayurveda#balance#alignment#subtleenergy
