RIP poppa McCardle. Vulnerability challenge right here... Tomorrow will mark the three year anniversary of my dad's death. His death hit me really hard, like, REALLY hard. I went through attachment trauma and adult seperation anxiety (I still do get seperation anxiety but I have learnt to understand and control it) and I barely recognise the person I was a year or two ago as it ruled almost every thought and action of my life. . He died of alcoholism and for a few years when I sensed something was up I tried to persuade him to get help but he never did. I remember four years ago even begging him if he could see a doctor just for my birthday present. He didn't go. . I was very angry with him after his death, particularly after the first wave of grief I went through around the time I moved to Melbourne two years ago and it turned me into someone who just didn't care about himself because I felt like my dad had abandoned me. I felt like the person I loved most in my life didn't love me. It made me have an irrational mistrust in people's feelings for me and a deep fear of abandonment. Of course this was completely irrational but you just can't predict how you are going to react to the death of a parent, particularly when they die in such a tragic way. Of course my dad loved me so much and I've forgiven him even if I do still feel sad and effected by it. He was an amazing man and it's hard to be without him as we spoke pretty much every day, but holding onto resentment only halted my growth, and the way I projected it towards him for a while was to damage myself the same way he damaged himself. It took me A LOT of self-actualising to figure that out. Thankfully my life is so different now. I'm also three months sober and raising money for FARE (the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education) and it's become an important part of my life 😊 .  Without my dad I would not have my creative side or my love of music and I can't even put into words how much of an
**STEP INTO YOUR GREATNESS AND SHINE** . . Everybody ain't ready for this level of realness. They care too much about social norms, what other people think. They are conditioned and programmed by their religious beliefs, heavily influenced by so many external sources. I am different, so I live different. I do shit different. I can never be normal or mad regular. I strive for #greatness not mediocrity . . I am what I am. I'm not afraid of #vulnerability  I will always #beauthentic because I am not afraid to be transparent #ivegotastorytotell and will speak my truth.  Fitting in just doesn't fit. I don't need to be liked by everyone. Life is not a popularity contest. This ain't high school. . . Either we vibrating on the same frequency or we not. Either we aligned or we not. My light is undeniable. I will not dim. I will continue to shine unapologetically.  #liveyourmostauthenticlife #livinglifefrominsideout #nukpuntrthmt #iamseshetakhepra #iamashiningbeing #idwellinlight  #livingmybestlife
Showing others what makes us who we are, scary isn't it.  #noregrets #loveallofyou #embrace #vulnerability #growthmindset #grateful #blessed #loveyourself #yqr#sigmundfreud
The truth shall set you free. Congratulations Wendy Williams on being courageous enough to share her current truth. ⁣ ⁣ Wendy is a woman I have admired for a really long time. My personal big dream started with Oprah, and then when I heard Wendy, I was like wait, you can be on air for 4 hours live instead of 1! I want to do that! I did my thorough research. I left University of Miami and transferred to Northeastern University so I could follow in the footsteps of Wendy and have my own show on @wrbbradio WRBB 104.9 Boston. I did that for 5 years. It was called Let’s Talk About It with Jeselle. I had the blessing to interview hip hop greats such as @teacha_krsone , @bep , @theroots just to name a few. During that time, I too got the drug addiction slap in the face. Unlike Wendy’s long awaited head on inner work that is so necessary, I got slapped in the face with yet another long time struggle - a mental health relapse, due to use of drugs. True story. Ask @iamwill - he knows! 🤦🏽‍♀️ Hospitalized for 8 weeks, I thought, actually- come to think about it...I only listened to every album of @bep on repeat from my disc man. And a bit of Wyclef Jean here and there. ⁣ ⁣ This is just a smidge of my story. You have your story to tell too. There are layers and layers and layers on top of this series of events. ⁣ ⁣ I say all this to say, do not be afraid of yourself and hide in your shadows. There are people out there that can 100% support you in whatever downward spiral you are going through. And, no one ever needs to know but yourself, your support team and whoever you choose to invite in. ⁣ ⁣ For me, therapy & coaching have been my savior. Before I could be an amazing coach, I had to be my own best client and do the work. All of it. And still do daily. ⁣ ⁣ No matter what you all think or believe about @wendyshow , I hope you all see the strength, courage, vulnerability and truth that she has revealed with us today. I’m am fully

Inspiration, Motivation, & Perspective with Eagle Rise Speaker, Jason Schechterle. #risewithus  #repost @schechterle_jas with @get_repost ・・・ As I approach the 18th anniversary of my "significant event", and see what life is like today. I realize all past significant events become more distant on the negative side, while the positives and inspiration remain in constant contact.  We all have a story and go through trying times. It's how we choose to overcome. Mindset is everything. The power of YOU cannot be underestimated.  My burn injuries are old news. Like everyone, I have new, current, and upcoming challenges to work through. Adversity is here for us in many forms, and it's forming many more ways to come at us in the future. If you want to overcome your adversities you have to let the belief in yourself outweigh the pressure and the pain. #burningshield #mindset #riseup #vulnerability #strength #positivity #inspirationalchange #publicspeaking #overcomingadversity
In honor of spring and new beginnings, I recently took a giant leap into uncharted territory and showed up to an art class. Here’s what I was reminded:  Gathering women together to do something creative is always a good idea. I felt inspired, supported, nourished and connected.  Creativity requires vulnerability and courage which makes it HARD but vital to living a wholehearted life. The wise and wonderful Brene Brown says, “The only unique contribution that we will ever make in this world will be born of our creativity.” Yes.  Creative expression is an act of radical self care. Some see it as self-indulgent and luxurious but I fiercely believe the opposite: creativity is as important to our wellbeing as the food we eat and air we breathe. When our spirit is fed, our reserves replenish and we are able to give of ourselves more freely. •  The class was an introduction to watercolor and was taught by my lovely and talented friend @katebweese. I highly recommend her classes to anyone seeking an added dose of creativity in their life. Her next workshop is entitled Exploring Watercolor with Beginner’s Mind and will be held at the San Francisco Zen Center on Sunday March 31st. •  I’m putting the finishing touches on a newsletter going out tomorrow! In it I’ll be sharing some more resources to help you celebrate the new season. To sign up, head over to my website susancarter.com.
The last 6 years of divorce, chronic illness recovery, and business building has left me a bit spent. Taking a little time now for reflection, spiraling inward, and remembering who I am and what I want. So, this master retreat coach is taking a solo retreat in my own hometown. Today it’s Manresa State Beach where I’m greeted by our gorgeous California Poppies. Just me, my dog, my journal, and a coffee filled thermos. Life is good 🌼🐾☕️✍🏻 🌊... . . . . #impickingoutathermosforyou #soloretreat #retreatcoach  #divorcecarecoach #divorce #selfcare #soulsearch #bekindtoyourself #vulnerability #breathinginbreathingout #healingqi #sueseelycoaching #bethelight ✨
On paper, #unlikelycollaborators founder @ellesbet_koch and activist @emmanueljal represent some of the biggest divides in the world. Yet, they share the same values, the same principles, and the same vision for the world, born from pain.  This weekend, Elizabeth and Emmanuel embark on their Freedom From Your Box speaking impact tour to create connection with diverse audiences. Stay tuned for updates.  @mylifeisartcommunity  #elizabethkoch #emmanueljal #mylifeisart #freedomfromyourbox #bridgingdivides #speakingtour #impact #community #healing #connection #diversity #inclusion #vulnerability #workshop
Vulnerability is not a sign of weakness and can be your greatest strength.  To truly connect with someone, you need to allow yourself to be vulnerable.. to show your brokenness, your struggles, your weakness, your fears. It allows others to see right to our hearts and see us for who we really are. Whenever i share and show my vulnerability, i often feel a weight has been lifted off my chest, i feel i can breathe just a bit more easier. I get to feel a slight stillness to the war which rages within me.  Give yourself permission to be vulnerable with someone you trust. It might just be the most liberating thing you do. “Vulnerability is not weakness; it’s our greatest measure of courage. Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that I am brave and worthy of love and belonging. Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it’s having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome.” Brené Brown.  #loveliberates #vulnerability #strengthquotes
I was feeling strong last night, and then today I came unraveled in school (during an exam) surrounded by my fellow classmates who I have shared many magnificent hours with over the past few months studying anatomy and practicing bodywork techniques on eachother.  They have seen me weep a few times now. . Besides the Déjà vu breakup experience last week, and the visceral and extreme test anxiety that I have been experiencing (could i survive it without my practice?) and the super minor fender bender yesterday (someone backed into me) I’ve made some huge shifts in my career and life path and I have taken on a lot of responsibility and said yes to things that I have to just have faith that I can handle and it is scary and overwhelming at times. . . . It’s not a simple thing to adapt to a new city, as awesome as it may be, but I’ve been lucky to have met some (more) truly wonderful people and have an amazing support system and am super grateful for each and every one of you, you know who you are.  Thank you for the messages yesterday. 💓 . Namaste . #raw #vulnerability #yogateacher #practicedaily #grateful #authenticity #anxiety #suffering #pain #emotional

Ok, seriously guys. A whole bunch of things: conversation, thoughts, pressing ideas, YouTube video, Podcasts are all coming together on a certain thing and I don’t like it. Want to know? Vulnerability! Yeah, I said it. I don’t like it. It freaks me out. It pumps me up at the same time. I’m about to share some of what’s been colliding in my mind and stirring in my heart. Head over to Facebook (Jacque Dee Duran) in a bit (15-20 minutes) to catch my love video or replay. And if you see this before. Comment some (praying hands) 🙏 below and truly say a prayer.  Okay? Okay!
“Larcy has provided such an incredible environment for me to explore, better understand and heal from years of just the every day experiences life throws your way, as well as some deeper, more personal ones. I can without hesitation state that it’s the best thing I’ve done for myself.....ever! Her calm, attentive, focused personality as well as her spiritual connection as a minister has afforded me far, far more than the typical therapist ever could! Larcy listens! When was the last time someone REALLY listened to you? She provides healthy feedback, moderate challenges which ignites my brain to ponder different perspectives; she provides emotional tools that I can take with me in to the ‘real’ world, and last but not least........healing!”⁣ — DG
So thrilled to bring the creativity of @fineandfleurie to the women this weekend at our retreat! - Enormously grateful to be headed into this weekend’s #womensretreat with @karianneanthes brimming with inspiration from recent travels & excitement to capture the beautiful moments that will surely unfold. I’m also bringing a brand new creative project to the ladies and I hope it will be met with a sense of possibility and openness, even and especially for those who may have already deemed themselves “not particularly creative”... One thing I’ve discovered in the past few months is that the camera can make people uncomfortable. In some instances, really uncomfortable... but what if we leaned into that feeling instead of recoiled from it? Fought for some sense of peace with that vulnerability and viewed it independently as a small exercise in acceptance. The camera might even capture some little bit of beauty you didn’t even know existed.

Let Compassion Be Your Compass I admit it. I am a word nerd.  I love to find the words within the words.  One of those words is compassion. A word I have been pondering given the current state of humanity.  Compassion is defined as: “sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it” according to Merriam-Webster.  To some, compassion is considered a sign of weakness. To me, it’s a sign of strength. I’ve come to truly learn that compassion is our ability to see ourselves in all of humanity with a willingness to make a difference. That the light that exists within my own heart exists within all hearts, and the more I am able to recognize that light within another the more I have something to offer from my own heart.  It takes a certain vulnerability to show compassion, and therein lies the problem.  As Brené Browns talks about in her amazing TED Talk, The Power of Vulnerability, ‘we live in a vulnerable world. And one of the ways we deal with it is we numb vulnerability. ‘You can’t numb those hard feelings without numbing the other affects, our emotions. You cannot selectively numb. So when we numb those, we numb joy, we numb gratitude, we numb happiness….’ We react from our numbness, and our traumas, and do whatever it takes to beat back anything that makes us appear weak or vulnerable.  The other word in compassion is passion. You can not have compassion without passion. From the heart. Yes, the energy of passion can fizzle out, or burn down the house if not aware of the power of passion. Passion also had the power to transform. Passion can be the tender kindness that comforts in times of sorrow. Or it can channel the rage that sparks a movement such as the #metoo movement. The thing I keep coming back to is to allow compassion, and passion, to be my compass. To guide me in the choices I make, especially now.  #compassion #passion #compass #brenebrown #vulnerability #wordnerd #humanity #heart #courage #light
This weekend has really opened my eyes about my attitude to vulnerability...👀⠀ ⠀ I’ve hidden behind the ‘cool girl’ 😎👩🏽persona for a long time pretending not to care too much about anything. I was afraid of being ‘cheesy’ or too sentimental.⠀ ⠀ I denied the fact that I’d ever want to get married or ‘settle down’. I worried I’d get boring and an adventurous life would be over. 😮⠀ ⠀ Then I met someone who changed my mind! 👱🏻‍♂️⠀ ⠀ I was shown that it’s okay to let my guard down and learn to love openly. Things are what you make them and you totally have the ability to choose your own path. ✨⠀ I still have to remind myself of that sometimes, but it is amazing how much a relationship can teach you. ⠀ ⠀ Do you agree? What’s the greatest thing you’ve learnt or are learning from a relationship? I’d love to know! 👇⠀

“When we choose to be ourselves, the people around us will struggle to make sense of how and why we are changing” -Brené Brown 😰 This is one fear I hear a lot from clients. The fear that if I change what or why I eat, what time I choose to get into bed, or how I spend my free time, that I will loose my connections with friends and family.  They might not like me anymore or they might not invite me to things. ✨ Changing can be scary for all of us, but as my mom says “give time time”. Let those around you adjust but don’t throw yourself under the bus just to ease their discomfort or keep from displeasing them. That doesn’t get anybody anywhere and this is temporary. ✨ Try to be patient with yourself and those around you. Stay true to yourself and your self care and it will all fall into place.

Today I admitted to a new friend how hard it is for me when I am faced with criticism (different than feedback), even from complete strangers. I admitted that the second I face criticism, I retreat and shut down. 🙅‍♀️ ⁣ ⁣ It makes me question my abilities, my dreams, my deepest desires and my biggest goals.⁣ ⁣ I am taking a risk showing my authentic self. I want to show women and girls that we don't need to hide behind beautifully curated profiles 📷 or seemingly perfect lives. ⁣ I am here trying to create a space where women can be seen, be heard and be well. Yet, my first instinct is to run 🏃‍♀️ scared whenever I receive a nasty comment or hateful email. ⁣(If you're the one sending them... please stop. It's cruel) ⁣ So how do we stop shutting down when we are shamed? How do we lead with vulnerability and keep pushing through when it gets ugly? I'm still working on it and for those of you who are too - I see you. 💕⁣ ⁣ -⁣ #vulnerability #shame #wellness #local #business #705 #enterpreneur #health  #compassion

It is my last day in Mexico City before I fly to Chiapas for 6 weeks! I wanted to introduce you to two amazing women - Lupita and Cecelia. (Don’t let Lupita’s look fool you, I have never laughed so hard as I have with her!) I have never before experienced the feeling of vulnerability like coming to another country without a good grip of the language and trying to navigate by myself. These two women let me spend countless hours in the kitchen with them laughing, cooking, learning Spanish, and getting to know each other. . Truly connecting with other people challenges us to embrace vulnerability. I have always been independent and self reliant, but these two ladies let me reach out to them for help, took care of me, and taught me so much more than just a new language. I am forever grateful and love them dearly. . . . #newfriends #vulnerability #learningspanish #sisterfromanothermister #sisters #connect #mexico #travel #languageimmersion #kindness

Judgement is easy, and it can feel self-righteous... which is gross. When we take time to recognize the humanness in ourselves and others, we shed that judgment and can see people for their true intentions. Thank you for this @lrknost!

What is a Socia Media Influencer? Do you ever wonder what that actually even is? You are not alone. I think it may be a different meaning to everyone. This is my definition of what an influencer does/is. ▫ I would say most people think you have to have a TON of followers in order to be considered an influencer. I would definitely disagree. ▫ To me an influencer is someone that gives a genuine connection with their audience. When you go on social media and can't wait to see what they post or what is in their stories. Where you feel like you really know them without ever having met them before. THAT is an influencer. ▫ If you are wanting to be an influencer and grow your social media then start caring more about the people already following you! If you don't respond to every comment or give love on other people's post or reply to DM's why would anyone follow you? Social media is about being social! It's about connecting with other people! ▫ The name of the game is connections and relationships not about the # of followers! Start engaging. Start showing your authentic self. Start loving on people and see what happens with your social media. 😘💖 . . . . . . . . . . . #tiptuesday #socialmedia #socialmediainfluencer #influencer #authentic #beyourself #bevulnerable #vulnerability #connections #connectwithothers #notaboutyouboo #makefriends #besocial #beuplifting #givevalue
“Badassery”, being “unfuckwithable” and reptilians. What?  Distortion Paradigm: today there are a plethora of “experts” wanting to teach/coach you how to occupy a collective mindset, bypass healing, and “think yourself” into being some “badass” person who is “unfuckwithable”. Reality Paradigm: When your mother wound and father wound are addressed and your inner children are loved unconditionally by YOU - the internal parent - you begin evolving into the highest version of yourself.  You don’t become a “badass”, you don’t become a “warrior king”, or follow any other collective group programming. You become one thing... YOUR TRUE SELF. The self you never knew existed. The AUTHENTIC empowered being you came here to be.  Reality Paradigm: NO ONE is “unfuckwithable” if they haven’t healed their inner child. You will be “fucked with” on the daily by your own unhealed inner children. You will have any number of challenges including: repeated relationship patterns with partners and even your own children, healthy eating sabotages, lack of motivation and drive over the long haul to transform your life, financial challenges, stress, anxiety, addictions, depression... and the list goes on.  The more you ignore the power of your inner children, the more vulnerable you are to being controlled by them.  Distortion Paradigm: keep people hooked to their neocortex (new brain/ego). Your brain has three parts: old - middle - new (reptilian - limbic - neocortex). And it is the subcortical structures in your brain (limbic and reptilian) that are responsible for your primal emotions and motivations of which you are not fully aware. It’s where your inner children live.  Your decisions, emotional behaviors, motivations, and actions are NOT under the control of your “mind” as you think of it.  Decades of brain research have proven that.  People are confused as to why they don’t stick to a new years’ resolution, don’t seem to earn
She is 8 and I have just moved back home to Florida after living in NYC for a few years. Her father and I are in the middle of a custody battle that would inspire cystic acne to bubble on my chin like hot lava beneath my skin. I am in a relationship with a woman which adds fuel to his fire and he takes every opportunity to let me know how much he hates me, how much I’ve ruined their life. There are moments I believe him, but mostly I understand that the past is just that and all we ever have is now - and I was home now. But forgiveness doesn’t come easy for many. Trust me, I would know. She is 8 and I spend my nights wishing I could rewind time to when she was 5 so I could change my mind. I would’ve never boarded that flight. But I am 23 with pain so deep that I simply can not see beyond ME and so I leave, escape to NYC, run away from the one place I should be.
Sometimes my heart is overflowing with joy.  It feels like I’m a child again. Seeing beauty in every small thing. A butterfly. The sun. A present. The innocence of seeing the world trough a lense of love and light. Happiness is everywhere. There is always something to be grateful for. The smile of a person you love. The excitement when you see a cute animal. Hearing a song you forgot about after years. The beauty and perfection of nature. Sunsets on a spring afternoon. The earth is full of abundance.

Strength grows in the moments you think you can’t go on but you keep going anyway. . Yesterday’s #sweatyselfie and my week and a half update. I’ve been attending group sessions at Seneca Center for 8 full days. We practice CBT, DBT and mindfulness skills daily. I go to the gym 3 days per week after groups and stay active on the days in between. I’ve been able to (mostly) regulate my sleep pattern which means my general pain and fatigue have decreased. The skills I’ve learned have helped me regain control of my emotions, thoughts and life. I use them all day, every day. I’m not perfect but I’m putting in serious effort. I’ve gotten back into a helpful self care routine and I’m able to manage everyday tasks again. I feel like I have my life back already. I can’t say enough good things about this program and the people who run it. They are genuinely caring and deeply knowledgeable about these skills and how to implement them. I haven’t felt misunderstood, brushed off, or stifled as I have with therapy in the past. I’ve been able to stay present and focused, spend quality time with my family, and just live. My phone says my screen time was down 46% last week! My anxiety has been at an all time low, though it’s growing a bit knowing that I’m transferring into another group on Friday. One step closer to real life again. . My big takeaways from this program so far: - Don’t believe everything you think. - Anything I do to move toward the life I want is not a waste of time. - Be here now.
Selima is a generous and grateful woman. She shared her sujjada with me during prayer... she is from india and it is her first time to visit the two holy mosques. It has been her dream to visit for the last 40 years! . . . “You need to be patient and believe it will come true in right times” she said . . .

Feeling two ways as I post this today... one side says, this is truth! I am a work in progress that is able to have an emotional refractory period a hundredth of what it used to be, I am loving and caring of so many people in my life, I’m patient and sweet as I hold my crying baby at 3am, I’m more able to apologize and have the hard conversations with my love Amber about how I f$$ked up and that not only will I do better, but this is exactly how.. 😊 AND the other side says, you just need to take more responsibility in life for your arrogance and ego, it would serve you to annihilate your self righteous attitudes more often, and to humble yourself in the face of the ones you love and the strangers you can so harshly dismiss or judge, you have work to do bro!! And so I will leave it all here in the hope that either may serve you in your life and that saying it will help me know the best path for me. . . 🙏🏽🙌🏽💛 . .  I welcome your reflections or insights on either side my friends, thank you for supporting me to be a better man! . .  #perfection #self #reflection #honesty #selfdevelopment #love #life #projections #learning #belief #judgement #power #vulnerability
Transformation Tuesday (not my favorite thing)  Here’s another and big trip outside of my comfort zone!  These photos are about 3️⃣ years apart  Fitness has been something important to me since I was 14 years old. But I didn’t learn the importance of proper eating habits until much later. Ive always struggled with emotional and binge eating and still do these days from time to time, especially since having additional life stressors and responsibilities the older I’ve gotten. However, one thing I’ve learned is that a slip up here and here isn’t the end of the world and consistency with fitness and training and moving is so key. Sometimes we don’t see the progress we’ve made until looking back retrospectively and seeing photos of our progress. Like I said yesterday, were way too hard on ourselves, myself included.  I remember feeling proud in that first photo. Then more than excited about that baby bump in the second 😍, and even more proud in that 1 month postpartum photo! So why is it hard for me to be as proud now? Well I have more defined goals physically, but that’s not all. I’d say it’s probably because I know I haven’t been as consistent on my diet as I should through the holidays and off and on since. But maybe that’s a good thing. Because calories aren’t the enemy, and my body probably needed more. I was eating about 1200 calories a day in the first picture. Now, oh gosh it ranges from 1600-2000 depending on the day 😂  Sometimes, the real difference is just what we allow ourselves to see and to know that if we continue to push past and jump outside of our comfort zones, we will continue to grow stronger every day 💖  #vulnerability #comfortzone #getoutsideyourcomfortzone #fitness #transformationtuesday #workout #health #wellness #mind #body #spirit #wholistichealth #balance #postpartum #postpartumjourney
That paralyzing emotion hiding behind resistance.  To move past the resistance, regardless of what it is... is to STOP, SURRENDER, LOVE, and ALLOW.  All the answers lie within us.  Our natural instinct when overwhelmed emotionally is too busy ourselves, physically and emotionally,  in order to avoid dealing with the feelings. To look for answers outside ourselves.  I remember visiting my grandfather in the hospital 5 days before he passed, he asked me "how have you stayed so strong thru all of this honey". My reply, "because that is what you do". He didn't need to see my pain, he needed to feel comfort, love and dignity. It was my gift to him for all he had done for me.  I remember after he passed, sitting on the couch and literally asking the emotions to come for a visit, I needed them to come right that minute, but they didn't.  It was like I was expecting them to sit down in the chair across from  me so we could talk, process, and heal.  Recently, I found myself completely alone and feeling major resistance to it.  I felt this incredible desire to flee my own loneliness. Knowing full well that the desire to flee had an experience in it that I hadn't yet dealt with.  I decided to just stop, surrender and allow, doing yoga, meditation, and journalling. To embrace the resistance and discomfort.  The emotions finally showed up.  Behind the  loneliness was a 6 year old little girl. She was grieving, felt abandoned, unlovable, and scared.  In the silence, all that inner child needed was love, unconditional love.  She had been trying to get my attention for months, through anger, frustration, resistance, feeling abandoned. I didn't see it.  Whatever the experience you face; divorce, grief, heart break, trauma, you will find the feelings deep within, in the arms of that inner child… the place where we first experienced pain.  How did I stay so strong he asked me... it’s because he taught me unconditional love. The reflection in his eyes always was that 6 year old
Sometimes I feel like I am stuck in the movie “Groundhog Day.” Where I wake up, go through the same steps to reach my goals, and repeat. At times it feels like I’m not making any progress and I wonder if my strategy is sound. But I trust, continue and one day wake up and there is a slight change, a light at the end of the tunnel, and it gives me hope that I can reach these big dreams. And so I carry on.⁣ .⁣ When I am not seeing the light yet or desired progress, quotes like this one from Calvin Coolidge are everything. I hope this encourages you as much as it did me. And wherever you are on your journey to your big goals, please accept this virtual high-five from me. ❤️⁣ .⁣ “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” Calvin Coolidge⁣ .⁣ #mindset #balance #reallife #growingup #progressnotperfection#vulnerability #dontjudge #bekind#perfectisboring #goals#motivation #workhard #dontgiveup
"The truth is: belonging starts with self acceptance. Your level of belonging, in fact, can never be greater than your level of self - acceptance, because believing that you're enough is what gives you the courage to be authentic, vulnerable and imperfect" - B.Brown . . I hope this quote will help you as much as it helped me, if you needed to hear it 💕 Let's be fair, nobody is perfect. Everybody is different. Knowing your self worth might bring you strenght whenever you feel vulnerable 💪 . . _____ #vulnerability #selfawareness #knowyourworth #bossgirlbloggers #wearetravelgirls #polskadziewczyna #madremysli #cytaty #przemyslenia #passionpassport #passportcollective #thewanderingtourist #ladiesgoneglobal #citizenfemme #visitmajorca #visitspain #alcudia #seagirl #iamtb #tbloggers #girlsthatwander #wanderlustvibes #traveltagged #crewlife #cabincrew #flightattendant

There are days you wake up, and you are ready to tackle the world.  Then, there are other days...⠀ ⠀ That's the thing with grief.  You never quite know when it's going to show up. ⠀ ⠀ Yet, despite feeling a bit fragile, I will keep speaking my truth.  I will risk rejection, being misunderstood, and dealing with the insensitive opinions of others.⠀ ⠀ Because I refuse to become small. ⠀ ⠀ #childlessnotbychoice #thisisinfertility #redefiningmomhood #grief⠀ . . . ⠀ #notsomommy #notsomommyblogs #childlesssupport #childlessblog #infertilitysupport #infertilityawareness #infertilityblog #disenfranchisedgrief #strongwomenquotes #motivationalquote #inspirationalquote #healing #vulnerability #movingforward #speaktruthinlove #speaktruthfully
My parents were in town to celebrate my and my stepdad’s birthdays. We had grand plans, but my body had other designs. Instead of being stuck in unrealistic expectations, over the years me and many of my loved ones have separately and together worked on how to communicate with each other, instead of  internalizing things. It takes a lot of work on all sides to really see each other and respect personal boundaries without feeling hurt.  Instead of trying to meet each other emotionally and physically in a way that’s impossible with my current situations, my loved ones happily meet me where I am, and in a way that works for us all. In these instances it’s about quality over quantity.  It’s about remembering what is important, focusing on making memories with each other in any way we can. ( Plan A) visit the dedicated gluten Free Japanese bakery in the next County over. We chose plan B) made some coffee and breakfast at home, went and sat under the sunshade in the backyard and watched the butterflies. Later, they had dinner out while I ate at home and relaxed by myself.  The next day, Plan A) Spend a few hours at the Cherry Blossom Festival. We chose plan B) relax at home, everyone went to lunch while I recharged at home and then we checked out the cherry blossoms 🌸 for 30 minutes. Later, the Mister had a wonderful bday dinner with my parents and auntie, while I stayed home, had quiet time and made IP wings and worked on my chicken wing sauce (super easy and requires minimal energy). Overall, a wonderful time.  There are those in the chronically ill community who lack this kind of support; suddenly there is a change and people may not understand the depths of how it changes things. It feels personal rather than something out of their control. My circle had to work out a lot of kinks and figure out a way to evolve.  If you’re going through it, this is so hard and your condition is not your fault.  You are worthy of love, respect, friendship, support. It
When women allow me to walk their journeys with them, I do not take their trust for granted. When they start sharing posts like this, I know they’re starting to find the strength I always knew was in them. So proud of you, @journeying_with_jenni. Here is Jenni’s story. Tag someone who this might encourage or comment with some encouragement back to Jenni for sharing so bravely. ——————————— finding my footing back. ... ... feb 20th.. the day “divorcee” was added to my story and the chapter of my short lived marriage was closed. ... ... i’m not ashamed of this new title because i know that i fought for my marriage with every thing i had to the very end. ... ... i thought that saying goodbye to the man i loved so deeply for the last time was going to be one of the hardest things i’d ever have to face. ... ... turns out the walking away and moving forward has been tougher yet. i’ve felt every possible emotion under the sun possible. ... ... and lately i’ve felt like no matter how much i’ve put into moving forward and working through the tough stuff i‘m not getting anywhere. like i’m stuck. ... ... but i have to tell myself i’m not stuck. i’m just getting my “sole” mended before i can retie my shoes and jump up with jenni gusto again. ... ... so until then i’m learning to embrace my singleness again and re-discover the me that is ready to take on the path set out before me. ... ... i’m learning to be patient with myself and that true healing takes time. that it’s okay to have the nights where the loneliness runs deep. it’s okay to cry, to hurt, and to be open & vulnerable about this part of the journey i’m on. because its part of the healing. ... ... i have no idea what lies ahead or what kind of footwear i’ll be slipping into for the next part of my journey. ... ... but i know that no matter where i go or how alone i feel God will be there beside me never growing tired of my weariness but giving me
When I decided to enter the @moment film fest, I knew I had to take the chance to create something that would make me vulnerable. I want to show you that it’s okay to let go of your defence. Sometimes it may hurt or it’ll be stressful, that I know. But you’ll grow each time you let vulnerability guide you. • My film about the death of dream is still up.

Wanna receive full moon blessings? . Tell someone just how much you love em'. . Sometimes when we hold back and cut ourselves off from vulnerability, we shut down the very connection with others we seek. . Connection, love, tenderness, togetherness, companionship all stem from our willingness to be vulnerable. Vulnerability cannot be emulated. It cannot be manipulated. It cannot be imitated. It cannot guarantee security. When shared without expectation or without agenda but just because you feel it that is when it works for your own growth and wellbeing and when relationships that will work...will benefit. . Vulnerability, when it feels like thunder and lightning in the heart on the cusp of releasing it is exactly. what. connection. is. all. about. . Mind will tell you it's scary. Mind will come up with conditions of what if it turns out bad. Mind will activate fear states in the body. Mind will get in the way...as per usual! When mind is loud, the heart is ready to open. Otherwise, mind is quiet, enjoying the illusion of safety in keeping it safe and defended, especially if there has been past hurts in sharing how vulnerable you've felt. . Do you want connection but expect someone to give it to you without opening your own self deeper and deeper into vulnerability? . Time to break the heart open. Let go of expectation. Lose the agenda. Drop the conditions. Screw it! When we share ourselves and our tenderness without expectation of ideals, fantasies of love or cultural norms in return no one hurts us as we are already free, enjoying love and compassion flowing through our own heart consciousness. We are simply resilient in the energy of love and that is a different way of being "in love". . We are all meant to love under the light of the full moon 🌕 . #blackbirdholisticcounselling #exploreconnecttransform #intuitivecounselling #holistichealing #liveintune #vulnerability #openheart #whatareyouwaitingfor #noagenda #givewithoutwantingback #sharedvulnerability
I’ve tagged other autistic people for their opinions @greenroseserenity suggested I needed the son-rise program in response to one of my posts and my initial response was get my back up.  I quickly engaged my brain and realised that this lady probably is coming from a good place and means well so I thanked her.  I have since looked into the son-rise program and as initially thought, I’m still not interested.  In fact I didn’t go past the past I took a screen shot of.  Treating Autism, Asperger and other development disorders was enough for me to disengage.  I’m not interested in finding out more however what I’m interested in doing is finding out from #actuallyautistic people what their thoughts on these kinds of programs.  Everyone’s opinion is valid and a slanging match won’t be entertained.  Everyone is entitled to an opinion, that’s how people learn and change preconceived opinions #autism #actuallyautistic #autistic #asd #aspergers #autismtreatment #autismtreatmentcenterofamerica #psychology #trauma #acceptance #consciousparenting #firstdonoharm #lifeexperience ##selflove #selfesteem #purpose #identity #love #ptsd #children #differentability #educator #awareness #notlimitedtoautistics #neurodiversity #desperate #vulnerability #writersnetwork
My belief is that it all begins with us seeing our own soul and being unafraid of it and unafraid of sharing it with the world.  Along with this comes the beautiful gifts of transparency and vulnerability, which provides a window to the soul and a connection to people that is often missing in our fast-paced culture. I believe that living life unmasked shines a beacon of light on others and helps draw them out of the darkness of this often broken world. It ultimately connects us all. 🙏🏼💫🙏🏼🎆💜🌟 #soulconnection #universe💫 #shareyourpassion #vulnerability #startswithyou #shineyourlight #humanityhealing #findingyou #feedmysoul #soulgrowth #removerofobstacles #vibratehigher💫 #universallaw #cosmicconsciousness #dharmayoga #illusions #findyourinnerstrength #sadhana #santosha #8limbs #aimtrue #justbeyou #followyourownpath #innervoice #truthseeker #keepsearching #listentoyourheart #findyourpurpose #inspiringothers #journeywithme
By embracing your imperfections and accepting yourself as you really are, you start noticing your limits and become curious about knowing what lies beyond them. Such curiosity nourishes your courage to face the unknown risking losing what you already have for what you can conquer. Thus, limits become obstacles when faced and once they are overcome, you call them INNOVATION. To innovate you must embrace what is with curiosity and have the courage to risk your own vulnerability to favor the remote possibility of achieving and living the EXTRAORDINARY. 👥: @christinadelposso 🌐: www.delposso.com 📩: christina@delposso.com Você não está sozinhx.

#tuesdaythoughts A feeling that I have noticed rearing its ugly head again is doubt. It always seems that as one part of your life is coming together another part begins coming apart. . . I took some time away last week to check-in with myself. Mainly preparing myself to let go of the things and people that no longer bring me happiness. But in the midst of "leaning into the comfort of vulnerability" (sidenote: if you haven't watched The Power of Vulnerability by @brenebrown I highly recommend it!), I found myself in a familiar place where hidden insecurities disguise themselves as voices of reason.This almost always happens at some point during my relationships and situationships.

"The stories that shaped me" many of you ask. You grow tired of them with time if you’ve invested in your healing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I believe that the healing alchemy lies in remaining reticent and trusting that once we do the work we need not share the traumas and discoveries further. We must allow them to happen quietly at a soul level to heal. No analysis with oneself or others. Magic unfolds in the most subtle and silent of mediums (hint: that's how I "get my inspirations"). There are also stories one should keep privately, honour in discretion between those involved, and solely share with those that earn them. You don’t have to publicize your plots of suffering to serve others - although that may help some at the start in releasing the shame, guilt, and pain we often carry. This is something I keep in mind as writer: Art lies in showing, and not telling. It's also good to leave space for people to fill with their own imagination so they can better comprehend themselves through their perception. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I learned a few years back that sharing vulnerabilities should be an invitation to move towards healing and light, instead of connect through trauma as the main link till it eventually becomes our identity. Our trauma-sharing can often be a mean to stay in our victim mode and feed our ego, at some point, we need to go beyond the story and only reveal our vulnerabilities to better connect with and empower others rather than merely get pity and similar company. This is one of the most difficult things to do: Moving away from external to internal, from tribe power to personal power, and from letting "destiny" happen to stepping into authentic power and creating it ourselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to move towards healing and the light, you have to connect through healing thoughts and seek the light in yourself and others. From your soul/spirit's lens; there is no good or bad, no wrong or right. There are only

Sometimes in life, the best things for yourself are the hardest to do. I’ve chosen to take the harder, but healthier path & very soon I’ll be much better off because of it. I’m growing toward a life goal & im doing great all things considered. Today I’m going to give myself some grace and be nicer to the woman I am becoming. . Happy Monday friends!

~ March is Dolphin Awareness Month, a time to celebrate these intelligent and sociable creatures, and to raise awareness of the vulnerabilities they face 🐬 . Many of us are conditioned to believe that showing vulnerability is a sign of weakness, when in fact the opposite is true.  Vulnerability means you have nothing to hide, you want people to see the real you and are comfortable bearing your soul.  It means you have a big heart and care deeply for others, only wanting what's best for them.  And vulnerability means you've given yourself the freedom to feel, and that is a sign of courage and strength. . Dolphins do face many environmental vulnerabilities, but their bubbly personalities still shine through.  They are sensitive and kindhearted, and always look as if they are smiling.  I took this photo of a bottlenose dolphin at SeaWorld Orlando and it never fails to make me smile. . How many of us smile and say we're fine when we're not?  Instead we should embrace our vulnerability, admit we're not fine, shed tears and show sadness, be kind to ourselves, then rise and allow our light to shine and our spirit to soar and our love to touch others. . We are all connected, every living thing, and we are never alone.  Everyone and everything we encounter can teach us something new, about ourselves, and this world we share.  Just open your heart, your mind, and your soul, and be vulnerable, because this makes you beautiful. . #dolphin #dolphins #nature #sealife #wildlife #bekind #believeinyourself #dontgiveup #feelings #gratitude #inspire #knowyourworth #loveandlight #mindfulness #oldsoul #vulnerability #youarebeautiful #breathe #empathy #itsokaynottobeokay #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #positivity #selfworth #understanding #wellbeing #youareenough #peaceandlove #plur #trancefamily
