The who I am, is worth everything. I will never give myself away or lose myself again. I am worth more - I won't forget that now. I've seen more pain and experienced more trauma than most people ever will in their lives, from sexual assaults to domestic violence, rape to miscarriages, hostile divorces, losing all 4 grandparents + both my parents by the time I was 38 & everything in-between. I had a drug addiction in my younger years, tried suicide attempts 3 times - got through it all without any therapy, just out my survivability. I've had depression, anxiety, body dysmorphia and complex PTSD. And from enduring I have grown strong and resilient af. Nothing scares me anymore. I've died a thousand times inside this human shell, but lived to tell the tale. These days I have studied and now have the acquired skillset to help others know how to heal themselves. Trauma informed care is important to me. So is mental health. I raise my kids teaching them everything I know, and I've given them everything I never had, like support & stability or a safe home, knowing they aren't at risk. This is me - grateful for this space, for this coming home and for knowing I am enough, even when other people tell me I'm not. #thankful #grateful #gratitude #life #lifelessons #lifeisajourney #myheart #mylife #trauma #traumainformed #iamenough #mentalhealth #skillset #worth #selfrespect #selfcompassion #selflove #bekindtoyourself #boundaries #loveyourselfmore #boundariesarehealthy

🔭🌍 This is your world | The moments when I am alone are the most important moments of my life. I wouldn’t be who I am without knowing myself and my spirit. My evolution has come over time by untangling my existence and thoughts from everything and everyone, and getting to know me better. Prayer, meditation and taking time out for myself are the most important ingredients of my life. My mother, grandmothers, great grandmothers, and generations of women haven’t historically had much time to spend alone in their 20’s and 30’s because they were working and taking care of/raising families, had husbands and everything that comes with being a Black Woman in the United States of America that is a descendant if kidnapped Africans and Native people. So when I feel the urge to downplay myself by making anything a priority other than myself, I #presspause and look at my spirit. I cannot be my best self without me so if I am anxious, I go inward and check in on how much fear is running through my thoughts. Then practice shifting my thoughts to positive and optimistic ones. It takes a lot of practice and is a pretty vulnerable place. Know that you can be angry or sad and still aligned with the joy that comes from being aligned with your own spirit. I’m angry, pretty sad about all of the war and negativity but optimistic and aligned with that spirit so I am also full of #faith. What I know for sure is that everything must change. So change is life so you can change. We can change the vibration of this world 🌍... #veryhuman #veryblack #reflection #ring #beeasy #bekindtoyourself #ifyoupresspause #faithfulfriday #checkinwithyourself #flashbackfriday #losangeles #themondrian #blackutopia #lifeasameditation #wemovetheplanets #taketheaveragemindandexpandit #yougotthewholeworldinyourhands #selflove #selfcare #mindfulness #gratitude #inspiration #alignment

Mindfulness is a super power we develop and grow in small steps. It's one decision at a time to lead your thoughts, rather than letting your thoughts lead you! The items left undone, the words said in frustration, the unsettling leftovers from today can be looked at tomorrow. You can practice mindfulness tonight by wrapping up your concerns, tying them tightly, and setting them on a shelf for tomorrow. No, you won't solve it tonight. No, beating up yourself never makes tomorrow better. No, it isn't irresponsible to take some rest. Yes, it's good to calm down, eat, laugh, rest and pray even before you have resolved what is going wrong.

This week has been one of those weeks. Insanely long, endless things to do, pulled in multiple directions, not enough energy, not enough time, too many emotions and no patience to feel them... what’s that saying? When it rains, it pours. Well, at the end of the day, at the end of my week, I’m still grateful. So grateful. I take one hard look at myself and I think of all that I am and all that I have and it brings me to my knees. Then I think of all that I can be and all that I can have and it shakes me. You can stand in the rain, or you can dance in it... #bekindtoyourself #balanceiskey #workhardplayharder #stopandsmelltheroses #gratitude #feelgoodfriday

We live in a society that tends to overemphasize the importance of being in a relationship. When we pressure one another to stick with the man for the sake of making it work we are undervaluing our worth. If someone is in your life who isn’t building you up and bringing you joy it might be time to think about why it’s worth it. And if that person is hurting you and you can’t find the strength to leave you need to find someone who can help you. You are too precious to be in danger, and to valuable to be diminished. You are worthy! Life is beautiful 💞 #becourageous #itsgoingtobeokay #bekindtoyourself #loveyourself #acceptance #youareloved #lifeisbeautiful #life #bestrong #survive #survivor

There’s been a lot of change the last year.... ▪️We lost our dog Reef and adopted Buddy. ▪️My husband lost his job and started a new one in February, working long hours to help launch the city’s new professional lacrosse team @sandiegolax. ▪️And now our neighborhood is changing, the 35-year-old golf course up for sale and a bunch of friends and neighbors rallying to save the open space.▪️I have been working long hours at my publishing job and squeezing in time to do my skincare side gig. ▪️And, um, my daughter turned 13. ▪️In the midst of all this, my body finally said “enough.” After years of successfully controlling my autoimmune disease by diet, I have had several major (and minor) flares these last few months. ▪️So I am giving myself permission to breathe. To slow down and stop trying to control everything. I am reading through the Bible. I am saying no. And I am trying to feel liberated, rather than guilty, about it. ▪️We are all a work in progress. Let’s be gentle with ourselves. 💕

When we are so angry the only person it’s hurting is us, the other person you’re angry at might be angry too, but most likely they aren’t stewing like you are. So for your own mental health, ask yourself “how important is this?” Is it worth stressing over to the point of uncomfortablility in your own heart. . . . #youngliving #younglivingeo #younglivingessentialoils #essentialoils #ylforgiveness #theresanoilforthat #ylforgivenessoil #oils #oilmomma #forgiveness #bekind #bekindtoyourself #forgivethosewhohurtyou #mentalhealth #oilsformoods #treeoflifeyloils

We must learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create.’ ~ John Lennon . This is a quote that has always stuck with me and it’s something I really align with. Self love is hard work!!! How many of us can fully admit that we love ourselves? Self love takes time and commitment to ones self and is hard when we are living in a day and age where we are conditioned to believe that we are not good enough. . I think the worlds healing begins with self love. The children we raise are products of the belief systems we ingrain on them. How can we raise strong, resilient, compassionate, caring and loving human beings if they are not taught from the start how to love themselves. . Take the time to love every bit of your being. You are unique. You are beautiful and there is only one you. Be real, be honest and be kind to yourself and humanity ✨ #bereal

I refuse to go backwards. Spent the day in Bellingham and it was fun spending time w the people I love, but it’s a nice reminder that I work my ass off to create the life I want. Not everyone has to support your vision. And you certainly do not have to feel love from everyone. But, I know I’m helping women and changing lives and I know this work matters. Off to Glacier for the night. Service is limited and my friends are plentiful so I’ll be clocking out til tomorrow at some point. Xo

My low waste kit for going out varies day-to-day. It honestly depends where I’m going and where I’ll be eating. Am I going to the markets? Will I be sitting down and eating? 🌏 But inside my bag, there are three things that don’t really fluctuate: water bottle, napkin and cutlery. The tin itself varies in two sizes, biggish or smallish. When I’m going to a market I’ll bring my bigger tin - as a dine-in option is rarely ever an option, so girl’s gotta eat and the tin pictured is great for a meal or two. I’ll bring a smaller tin if we decide to eat at a restaurant and for those rare occasions I can’t finish off my food. I tend to use those leftovers as an snack or a light meal or sometimes, I’ll eat it 5-10mins later because my stomach just needed some time to digest! 😅 ♻️ Do I ever forget? YES! I’m human and still quite new to this new lifestyle. But mostly, I’m human. Slowly these changes are starting to become apart of my habits, yet, I know I’ll still make mistakes. I’ll still forget. I mean, I’ve been “chewing” for most of my life and I still manage to bite my lip when eating! 🙊And as much as I dislike the word “journey” (heck, I’m not on the Bachelor or a cooking show!), it IS a journey. And it ain’t always perfect or pretty. 💚 🌏 💚 #bekindtoyourself #willyouacceptthispackagefreerose #🌹

Dessert before dinner tonight! Made strawberries with swerve (0sp), and splurged on bisquick biscuits - this whole bowl was only 9sp, including some fat free whipped topping! I still have 13sp left for dinner - thinking a quesadilla, for some variation! Have some chicken cooked in enchilada sauce, yum. Also, I went grocery shopping on my period and didn't deviate from my grocery list! Super proud of that. I even had some low calorie ice cream on my list and I didn't bring it home and devour the entir pint like I normally would have.

🍃🌳🍃 •One of the best ways to clear your mind is to get outside. Sometimes we can get so overwhelmed with the daily hustle & bustle of our day to day lives that we forget to just breathe. Immersing myself in nature gives me a quick reminder that the things that stress me out are so minute & there is so much to be grateful about. 🌳🍃🌳 •My challenge to you is to get outside. Go hiking in a forest & take it all in. Or go to a park and sit & reflect. Whatever you choose to do take a human moment and just be. . . . . . #forestbathing #naturetrails #hiking #MyFabletics #rejuvenation #sitandreflect #InTheWoods #NatureRules #shenandoahnationalpark #Glamping #giveyourselfabreak #bekindtoyourself

I want to make something clear... I am all about trying to be positive and happy as much as I can but there are days like today that hit a little harder than other days. (just a lot of weird stuff going on) I am human and you are human and we are all going to experience hard days. It’s ok. It’s normal and because we experience these sad, mad, frustrated feelings we can experience the joy. If we were always in a state of happiness it really wouldn’t be that great and we wouldn’t appreciate it. So feel your sad, upset, angry feelings and then move on as soon as you can. I love you all and send extra hugs to those that are struggling right now. 🤗❤️🤗 #amazingtoknow #yourenotalone #itsokaynottobeokay #loveothers #quotestoinspire #bekindtooneanother #bekindtoyourself #bekindalways

I know a lot of people would look at me and roll their eyes if I told them I gained 5 lbs this past year. What people don’t realize is that, like a lot of people, this actually really bothers me and I’ve really struggled with accepting it the last few months. If you are close to me, you probably know this because I will mention it randomly (sometimes in a joking manner). No one likes gaining fat pounds, myself included. During those few months though, it’s made me realize how hard I am on myself, and I’m not alone. A few pounds does not hurt anyone, as long as overall you are healthy - that’s the key. I feel happy now and much healthier (due to a few people - they know who they are and I won’t mention names). I’m now working out a bit more and eating better, not to lose weight, but to generally feel healthy and good about myself. This may seem like a silly post to most, but I really do advocate everyone to be kinder to yourself and focus on being happier and healthier in your day to day life (and not to fixate on the number on the scale). That’s been my goal the last few weeks and it’s changed my perspective on a lot of things. We all have our struggles and this one happens to be one of mine.

I’ve been thinking about the phrase ‘take care of yourself’ lately 🤔 I woke up yesterday and felt like I was hit by a truck, (did my double shift anyway😷) now after my best efforts, you can’t avoid being sick. I haven’t been sick in almost 3 years (thanks to my superfoods🌻) but I worked myself hard last week and I guess it’s finally catching up. I accept that. I know it’s ok. What is NOT ok is that, when I got home from my 13 hour shift, all I could think about was ‘maybe I could still work out.. it’s only 30 min. I could push myself it’s fine’ THAT IS CRAZY. CRAZY. Look, having EXCUSES is one thing: I don’t have time I’m tired I work too much It’s too much responsibility I hate working out (I’ve heard them all🙄) But being SICK, and pushing yourself beyond limits, isn’t the best thing for you, or for me. I can’t believe I thought that was ok. Listening to your body is FIRST. Taking care of yourself is first. Do the workout when you are ready. Don’t force it. Make yourself some tea, and sleep☕️ Get rest. Drink your water. Eat your veggies Make yourself soup. Just take care of yourself. The workouts can WAIT Ok I’m off to watch a @livepdnations marathon.

We made spring rolls and stuffed eggplants (with sumac)! So good. It wasn’t as hard as I imagined it may be ... lots of prep, but, fun to roll! Cooking fresh eats with my sister, @kksand and niece, Sophia has been the best this evening after a long day at the beach ... and a lovely morning of work and writing by the pond. So thankful. It my first full day here ... and While I love flying places, I knew how relaxing it would be to drive and not be able to do much else for 9 hours ... it’s what I needed to unwind and actually rest as I’ve found that challenging to do here recently. The high energy of summer ... and the energy of fire that summer brings out in us 🔥 . Our inner fire can be fast, active, focused, productive, pensive, critical and perfectionistic. So, in balance tonight ... chill Music, a relaxed pace, Uber comfortable company and a messy project ... and it’s inspiring all things light and easy, hah. It feels kind of wild to “turn off” after months of being on at all times. Maybe more on that later, but, also, just so many shifts happening with my work as I shift my focus online. Now that I work alone more often, it’s even easier for me to say how much I’m *not* doing (to myself and others) whether it’s true or not. ... I’ll tend to ignore that which I have been doing and I’ll allow my inner fire-critic to rule the roost! When this happens it . can be easy to exaggerate, criticism and feel like I’m actually “doing nothing”. When I hear that broken record ... I know that slowing down is exactly what I need ... to remember to appreciate everything around me ... and to breathe and recognize realistically that — that is within me and coming from me (sans self-judgment and self-criticism). You know that feeling? When’s the last time you actually turned off? When’s the last time you acknowledged that you’re misreading the enough just as you are? Because it’s true ... and I want to remind you to be soft on yourself. So much love to you ... this last photo is their kitchen chalkboard ... which is the most adorable ever ... and a sweet reminder ... to #maketodayahappyday

8 month anniversary ( 242 days = 8 ) I 'sat with deer' last night while out for a sunset ride. This beautiful animal appeared out of nowhere and simply stood there and gazed at me. I felt an immediate connection and stopped. After a few minutes of conversing, I continued my ride. Deer simply stood there and watched. As I slowly came closer, deer simply stood there until we were side by side, arms length of each other. Deer never flinched. As I was saying thankyou and my goodbye, I felt the presence of Louise, who is the one who always told me to 'sit with deer'. Timestamp D/M/Y/H of the picture when deer and I first crossed = 3 I often return to the 2nd picture, from my 72 ( =9, 3 3's ) days in Muskoka. After a 'spiritual, journey session' with Louise, I went for a walk. As I walked by the firepit where we were to have a bonfire that evening, something drew me to walk back and stand still in front of the pit. An unexplainable feeling, a shift ran through me. My eyes saw only the pit and sun. The picture seems to say otherwise. Timestamp D/M/Y/H of the picture = 5 ( Akasha. Chakra. Pratyahara. Sutra 1.5 ) I began YTT200 207 days ( =9, 3 3's ) after "I came to believe that a power greater than myself could restore me to sanity" Some may understand the symbolism, associations I am making and some may not. All that matters is that, I, am beginning to. Another shift occurred within me at this past weekends YTT retreat, which I welcome with an open mind and heart. My journey - "what am I to learn/take away from this" since my last brain injury, January 25, 2011, ( =21, 3 ) is beginning to make sense. Light is all around me. No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it. We must learn to see the world anew. Albert Einstein

It's been a while since I've just had some real talk with y'all. Today has been hard. I woke up in a terrible mood, very grouchy and irritable. I was just short and snappy with everyone. As the morning went on it felt like the volume of every single thought I have going through my mind was being slowly turned to full blast. It's like walking into a room full of tvs, all playing something different and all at full volume. I can't get it to quiet down. I'm on edge and I've just become more irritable. I've been snapping at my kids and my husband, neither which deserves it. Then I feel bad for not being able to deal with my emotions better and I feel guilty for taking it out on them. That just adds to it. Then it leads to a whole lot of negative self talk becuase I feel like I should be able to handle this better. I know usually my posts end on a positive note but I don't have any solutions today. All I've got is a hot shower and my bed and a little hope that tomorrow will be better. #selfreflection #selfcare #emotionalhealth #embraceyourself #bekindtoyourself #selflovejourney #emotionalhealthmatters #joycomesinthemorning

I love this because I find I am often my own worst critic... and yet the biggest cheerleader for those I love. When I find myself questioning my parenting, dealing with mom guilt, or struggling with fears and/or concerns, this is a wonderful thing to remember. Sometimes that inner critic is hard to even recognize because it has become such a regular voice. But as soon as I ask myself what would I tell a dear friend... or even one of my daughters if they were dealing with what I am, the conversation shifts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let's be aware of how we are treating ourselves and be kind mamas!! We are setting the examples for our children by starting and continuing this within each of us. 🙏🏻✨❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you to @earlygirlphotography for this beautiful capture and @buffalosojka for the words.

• Seeds of kindness • . If you’re planting seeds of kindness, (the majority of) people are going to be kind to you. . If you forgive others, they are going to be forgiving of you. . If you’re generous, people are going to be generous with you. . 💫 May today be a day filled with many heart warming + joyful memories, for you. 💫 . And should the ‘minority’ say hurtful things to you OR be unkind, towards you - may you find peace guarding your heart ♥️ knowing you’ve walked in love, in all that you do - and how others ‘choose’ to treat people is no indication of your ‘value’ or ‘worth’. . . Rather, the health of their own heart (emotional, spiritual wellbeing) which is not your responsibility (I.e., how they choose to act towards others in such time). And your responsibility is simply to choose kind, thoughtful and loving people to surround yourself with. X . Enjoy today 💫 . #BeKindToYourself #BeKindToOthers

This whole finding a way to eat and live that works for your lifestyle thing? It’s definitely an evolving journey, not a destination with an endpoint. # Our bodies are constantly changing, and there will always be different seasons in life. Some will have more stress, others more rest, and a whole lot in between. # Since leaving my corporate job and switching to working from home full time, I’m noticing my energy is all over the map because I haven’t yet nailed down the best schedule that works for me. Some days it’s incredibly low, others I don’t stop moving and feel great. # Here’s some tweaks I’ll be experimenting with over the next few weeks, and they’re all things I discuss with clients: 💪🏽 Playing with working out at different times of day to see when my energy is best. For some, changing type/length/regularity of workouts is crucial as well 🍽 Making sure I’m eating enough AND prioritizing protein 🍠🥑 Experimenting with carb and fats ratios to see which is working best 😴 Earlier bedtime!!!! I struggle wth this and there’s zero excuse. It’s basic and makes a massive difference ❤️ Have a little self compassion. Sometimes you just need to give yourself a little extra love and care. # Remember that what worked for you yesterday, last week or last year may not work for you the same way now. We need to adapt as our bodies and lives shift, and that’s totally fine - it’s a good reminder to shake things up ✌🏽 # Do you deal with low energy on a regular basis?
