Hey guys! Today I did something totally different. To understand what this is, swipe to see how I think beautiful @kyliejenner would look like without surgery. I think she would be beautiful (she obviously is now, too) and I never saw any reason to change anything about her body. I think it’s an important topic because so many people struggle with it. It’s the influence social media has on our body image. We see pictures of these beautiful women (and men) and compare ourselves to them. This makes us sick and hate ourselves. The pictures we compare ourselves to are mostly not even real but even if they were you should never compare yourself. I know everyone heard this a million times but it’s true: everyone is perfect just the way they are. You shouldn’t judge yourself every day, you shouldn’t starve yourself and you shouldn’t suffer to be “perfect” or “beautiful”. Kylie shouldn’t have felt the need to change herself. You should love yourself for who you are and I know it’s hard, but you should even be proud the features you don’t like about yourself. Someone in this world admires you and you should too.

Almost 40, once homeless, slept on park benches, the black sheep of the family for many years, watched a bright future in baseball wash away, resentful towards people, places, and things for over 18 years.
You can go from always attempting to dodge a black cloud to becoming a contributing member to society if you just let go, live and let live, turn it all over and have faith.
Life ebbs and it flows with high tides and low tides. Trusting the man up stairs has paid major dividends in my Life today.
Seeing Life through a new pair of glasses is priceless today. A Life beyond my wildest Dreams!

“Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you?”
Fanny Brice ✨This is who I am...pushing away the haters. Loving and praying for them at a safe/healthy distance. Laughing without fear of the future. Knowing what my heart desires yet trusting in God’s plan for my life. Weird looking arthritic feet. Hair up in a bun because it really needs to be washed but there wasn’t time. What a beautiful, raw, and vulnerable place to be! Friends, be encouraged to show the world who you are. You are fearfully and wonderfully made, with unique talents to gift to the world and bless others. TRUST ME, people-pleasing and “posing” in order to be loved is not what God wants for your life. I challenge you to allow others to see you as you truly are, ugly bits and all. No more posing. And a lot more being as you truly are. ✨ #hatersbackoff#thisis33#singlemomstrong#trusttheprocess
Yo my human. Let’s chat real quick. ⠀
How’s your self-care practice going? ⠀
I don’t mean just taking 5 minutes to yourself before you go to bed or getting your nails done. ⠀
I mean in which ways are you showing up for yourself & taking care of yourself so you can show up for your life? ⠀
I hear the word on the street is that self-care is a NECESSITY, not a LUXURY 🙃♥️ ⠀
So I’m gonna ask you to check in with yourself and be radically honest. ⠀
𖦹What feels good right now? What feels off? ⠀
𖦹How do you feel about you in this moment?⠀
𖦹What do you need right now? ⠀
𖦹How’s the positive self-talk going? ⠀
𖦹Where are your stress levels at? ⠀
𖦹What’s one thing you’re grateful for? ⠀
Now.... take what you need 👇🏽⠀
✨Movement, a walk, a good sweat, yoga⠀
✨Time with your friends ⠀
✨Day off to yourself ⠀
✨Meditation, journaling some thoughts out ⠀
✨Water, nutrients, fuel for your body ⠀
✨Emotional support, hug, therapy, a cry ⠀
✨NAP TIME, cuddles with your dog⠀
✨Disconnection from social media ⠀
✨Time to dedicate toward your hobbies ⠀
Take a few minutes and sit in silence. What comes up for you? What’s your body trying to tell you that you need? ⠀
Get quiet for a few minutes⠀
Listen to what she is saying⠀
Respond with so much compassion + trust⠀
That’s your intuition being heard 😉⠀
Repeat 🔁 Repeat 🔁 Repeat 🔁⠀
Sooooo, what do you need right now? 👇🏽 ⠀
May 2019. The whole reason I started this Instagram page. One of my friends was training for a half-marathon, and we ended up talking about it over coffee. It has been on my bucket list for years to run a half-marathon, and eventually a marathon, and that was when I had the bright idea: I was already running a few days a week, why not start training and do the run with her?
Up to that point, I had been bored with my day-to-day life, I had no drive, no goals, nothing to strive for, and I was lacking motivation. Looking back, deciding to do the run was a life-changing decision. It provided me with a reason to get up everyday, along with the contagious enthusiasm for life that I live for. It pulled me out of a low and helped me to see how much more there is to see and do.
I had been experiencing a form of tunnel vision, prior to training. I had lost sight of the light and joy there is in life. I had been focusing intensely on all that I couldn't do, all that was wrong, and I couldn't see a way out.
Until I chose to. That's what truly living and experiencing the joy in life is. A choice. You can choose to step out of your comfort zone and end the suffering, or you can choose to be comfortable and continue living in a place of despair and hopelessness. YOU have a choice, and only you can make that decision.
Who cares what anyone thinks of your goals and dreams? Do what YOU want, what will make YOU happy, and blaze your own trail. 👟
Liebst du dich? Oder denkst du, du könntest dich jemals selbstlieben?
Was ist dein allgemeines Denken über das Thema Selbstliebe?
In unserer Gesellschaft wird es oft mit Egoismus oder Narzissmus verglichen. Dabei gibt es einen Unterschied zwischen Selbstliebe und Selbstverliebtheit.
Doch wenn auch du endlich anfängst dich selbst zu lieben, dann machst du es nicht nur dir einfacher, sondern deinen Mitmenschen das größte Geschenk.

Skin update ✨
My skin looks so good ! I've had a few of my classmates tell me my skin texture looks so nice and even now 😊 .
If any of you are wondering what products I use that have been giving me positive results, swipe to see my AM and PM products using @clearlybasics .
I start of with cleanser and cleanse for about 60 seconds ( i read somewhere that 60 seconds is the proper amount of time but not less! But don't quote me on this 😅) .
2. Dab a little bit of the Lighten Up mainly focusing on my cheeks and chin. The bottle may be small but it lasts a while! A little goes a long way as long as you're consistent 😉 .
3. I quickly apply toner by putting some on my palms and press to my face. I haven't gotten around to but cotton pads lol so I work with what I have.
4. And to wrap everything up, I apply my matte moisturizer ✨ since my face is oily, the matte Hydrator is best for me :) .
For P.M, I do everything above but I add in the Clear Out 🙌 the bottle is semi small but as I mentioned either the Lighten Up, a little goes a long way!!! .
I also make sure I apply sunscreen energy morning especially after ive used Clear Out the night before. Skin may be more sensitive to the sun using retinol so its always good to apply sunscreen 🌞 plus you should be applying sunscreen DAILY anyways 🤷♀️
April 2019. I spent my days cooking up delicious meals for the fam!
This was the first time I caught a glimpse of who I am, and began to learn to truly love myself. To see my flaws, insecurities, mistakes, and hard lessons learned, and love myself despite it all. Loving myself is something I am still working on to this day.
I have a hard time taking care of myself, putting my needs first, listening to and taking care of my body (this is especially difficult for me), showing myself compassion when I am not performing perfectly or not happy all the time (which is unachievable anyway), and not overthinking and doubting all the time that anyone truly cares about me. That last one may not seem to be associated with loving yourself, but it surely is. In order to be able to receive or trust love/care from other people, you need to love yourself. If you don't see yourself as worthy of love (because you lack love for yourself), you won't believe that it's real. This is an issue that has come up for me over the past few years. I don't trust anyone to stick around, so I keep them at a distance, friends included. Only recently did I understand why I do this.
I have been spending a ton of time alone lately, because I want to figure myself out. I want to know who I really am, not the person I am because I want to please everyone around me, and to understand why I have certain unhealthy habits in relationships. It is challenging for me to let love in, to trust that people truly love and care about me, so I push them all away. And I want to understand why. So, I have been seeing a therapist from @betterhelp to help me with all of this. She has helped me to see how my lack of compassion for myself makes me dependent on love from others. It was quite eye-opening. I have come a long way with self-compassion, but I clearly still have a ways to go. I highly recommend everyone see a therapist at some point in their life. You can learn a lot about yourself and learn better coping techniques for stress, anxiety, depression, etc.
I know it is totally cliche, but just a reminder: you can't fully love anyone or allow anyone to fully love you, until you love yourself. 💕
