I've always been my own hero! Success was never handed to me. I didn't have anyone else study in college and dental school for me. I never had anyone 'save me' like a lot of women on this Earth want and may have had. When is this quote not relevant? I'll do me.. until the rest of time. As many tempting promises come into my life or having desires to set certain expectations, I trust me, and only me. Investing into and 'saving' myself is my responsibility ✌❤ #beyourownhero#trustnobody#empoweryourself#womenstrong#teamelena#selfrespect#diy
Sometimes, it is in the best interest of all involved if a marriage ends. For various reasons, some marriages happen to be toxic... no matter the tragic circumstances that surround the couple... sometimes, the healthiest option is to walk away and rebuild your life. It is very challenging when so many people are adamant that after a traumatic loss in a family it is crucial that a couple stay married. Often, the person who chooses to end the marriage is encouraged not to do it and the community cannot understand why, at such a sensitive time, that type of choice would be made. I only offer here the possibility that some people, trapped in a marriage that is causing spiritual, mental or physical harm muster all the courage possible to find a way to a better life... that some people awaken to the fact that life is too short to spend it in pain, that their journey of grief will be seriously harmed if they stay married; and while from the outside looking in it seems like nothing more than tragedy added to trauma... it is in reality a tremendous blessing and an opportunity for someone to save themselves and honor their grief💞 #beyourownhero#couragetoheal#grief#griefquotes#griefsupport#griefandloss#griefjourney#lossofalovedone#lossofachild#survivinggrief#grieving#grievingprocess#grievingquotes#lifeafterloss#divorcesupport
We’ve been having a bit of a #selflove afternoon over here 💭🙏🏽 when you find yourself stuck in a moment of doubting yourself, thinking or feeling you’re not good enough or just in a bit of a neggy space, write down ALL the things you love about yourself or that you know you’re good at. Stick it somewhere you can see it and say it out loud as much as you need until your positive sparkles come back ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Find An Opportunity To Be Your Own Hero • Change begins the moment you get the courage and step outside your comfort zone. It’s when you’re on the edge of the cliff and have a choice; you can fall or you can fly. It’s in that moment, you decide if you are going to be your own hero or wait for someone else to come and save you. I had to face that choice a few years ago. Heck, even a couple months ago. • Truth is, when you step out of your comfort zone, you take a risk. A leap of faith. You might fail. You might struggle. Heck, you may fall. But you always have the power to get back up and keep going. And each time you do, you come back stronger. • You need to prove to yourself than you CAN do it. Whatever goal you set for yourself, work your ass off to achieve it. Prove to yourself that you are 100% capable of anything you set your mind to. I’m so proud to say I’m 22 years old and have already proven to myself that I am capable of amazing things. I don’t have all the answers, but I’m running full force towards my dreams figuring it out day by day. • This life can be anything you want it to be... but it won’t happen unless you take action. So stop hiding away and thinking you can’t do it.... get out there and be your own Hero.
I see this quote a lot - live your best life. But what does it mean? I couldn’t tell you, because what’s best for me isn’t necessarily what’s best for you. But I think we can all agree that happiness and fulfillment are important, right? Loving waking up each morning and being able to say “I can’t believe this is my life!” and mean it in the most positive way possible. —— So when they say to live your best life, how can we achieve that? —— Attitude. —— Your attitude directly impacts your mood. How you approach things, gratitude, optimism, creativity, etc all play a role. It’s hard sometimes to be positive, I get that, but when you shift your attitude and shift your perspective, everything changes. —— All this to say, if you want to live your best life, make the changes you need so you believe that you’re currently living it and shift your attitude and perspective. —— You got this!
A few weeks ago on our cruise I made my first fine jewelry purchase! It was just on a whim and it was to celebrate a business goal. . . As I was talking to my friend I was telling her about another trip I took in which we purchased jewelry. About 10 years ago I was on a trip with my husband and what should have been an amazing experience turned out to be quite empty. I remember getting my first Louis Vuitton purse, diamond bracelet and ring (the green one you see me wear a lot) and although I was blown away I just couldn’t help but feel empty mostly because at the time our marriage wasn’t good. And I Remember thinking...this is the American dream why does it feel so wrong? Stay at home mom, big house, vacations and gifts...and yet here I was feeling just as broken as before. . . And just like all things that sent me on a journey to find purpose and authenticity. And in a million years I would never guess putting myself out there as a coach and helping people would be the thing that made me happy. Pursuing that changed everything. It even changed my marriage. . . So I think a heart was fitting for my first piece of jewelry...cause it was only by following it that I found happiness. . . I’m curious! Have you bought your own jewelry? What did you get?
Our emotions are meant to be felt. People avoid feeling unwanted feelings and distract feeling feelings with numbing out by eating, watching tv, shopping, smoking etc. Our feelings hold the keys to our well being. Give yourself a new skill, feel your feelings, all of them, notice if your life is flowing the way it’s meant to. #feelit#emotions#selflove#beyourownhero#newskills#feelyourfeelings#flowwithlife
Spin that thought process! When you begin to believe that you can't twist the story into your happy ending, pull this reminder up. Even your procrastination is a positive (at times) - Reminder : 04/18/2019
Are you holding yourself back from living the life you want? . . I know for me, fear holds me back. I let others OPINIONS feed the fear that already exists in me. I’ve told my husband my biggest dream. He thinks I’m crazy. So, im gonna show him he’s wrong. 😂 . . Dare to dream bigger, babe. Cuz if it doesn’t scare the shit out of you... it’s not big enough. 💯
