So . . . let's get real and open . . . So I have IBS. And it quite literally controlled my life. When the Love Your Gut products came out I was so excited to try it. It anything would help I was going to be all over it!
Book 8 of 2018: The Mood Elevator by Larry Senn 📚📙📘 Takeaways: “It’s not what happens to you in life that molds you, rather, it is how you respond.” • “Many people respond to an adverse event or circumstance by asking, “why did that happen to me?” Instead, when painful things happen to you, try asking, “why did that happen for me?” • “When we live in faith, we see more options and discover more solutions to whatever problems life throws our way.” • “Happiness is not the absence of problems, it’s the ability to deal with them.” • “Our natural state is to be loving, wise and capable. You were born whole and complete.”
There is a saying: If you're not growing, you're dying. This is true in business as well as in everyday life. The key here, is learning - the constant and even obsessive effort to relentlessly and consistently becoming better version of yourself. Imagine if you learned something new everyday. What if you become just one percent better each day? What would happen to your life, finances, home, or family? The truth is that wisdom is not knowing what you know - wisdom is knowing that you do not yet know enough.⠀
BecomeMore is a youth-led social organization, aiming to create a platform for youth to meet like-minded individuals and solve youth issues together. We achieve our aim by creating monthly events, YouTube videos, Instagram post and content, annual youth conference and youth camp, as well as creating monthly newsletters. All of these programs above are set into different time frame within the year. Each month, we decided to focus on one Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which resulted all of our events, social media post, and newsletter to contain all information in regarding to that specific SDGs. Besides that, each year, we focus on helping and promoting one region in Indonesian that needs immense help especially in terms of quality education. In 2018, working with Indonesia Mengajar and MejaKita, we chose Natuna Regency as a region that we support. We will use the whole year to plan for Natuna Youth Camp and Gerakan Natuna Membaca (an effort to supply more books to Natuna in order to accommodate the high reading interst in Natuna). There are so many exciting projects and events we look forward doing with our interns. The programs we have above of course needs a lot of mind and hands to help, that is why we create volunteering and internship opportunities for youth to help our programs, especially those in high school. We work closely with our advisors to ensure success, as well as building connection with other organizations, firms, and inspiring individuals. We believe that BecomeMore is a great learning platform for not only the incoming interns, but for us the boards. More about us: http://becomemorejakarta.com/

Life isn't about getting more, it's about becoming more. 🌱
My runner's knee survived the Whetstone Ridge Trail without too much pain. Icing and resting, though. ▪
Run in the lovely rain to and from the gym.
Back-to-back F45 Panthers class and homemade vegan pancakes!!!
Lifting heavy (more focused on upper body). I maxed out what my arms could do during the first class, and then during the second class, I lifted lighter weights and had a higher number of repetitions.
2 minute plank with everyone after class. ▪
Rest day and I made more vegan pancakes! I was also stuck in an elevator for the first time. Luckily the door un jammed and I was only in there for maybe 5 minutes. I didn't panic, I'm pretty proud of myself. I reported it and the elevator was fixed right away. The handyman found broken glass and small pebbles in the track that the door slides on. 🌱
The journey of healing from whatever it is that has caused you pain in life can be beautiful, challenging, empowering and frustrating, and so many emotions. Most days I feel like I've completely won the battle and have full confidence in myself again and love who I am and I'm super productive... and then others when triggers happen or overwhelm sets in I can be extremely hard on myself and anxious if things aren't going as I envisioned in the time frame I wanted and we get wrapped up in victim mode for a moment and need to surrender and stop trying to control outcomes. I've had multiple panic attacks this week and have felt nervous and not myself since I fainted and was put into an ambulance again a few weeks ago which hadn't happened in yearsss. Anxiety and stress are so toxic to the body. Physical symptoms from these are common and I'm pretty sure everyone at some point has experienced it on some scale during some season in their life. I'm grateful to be aware when this is happening now and there is no reason to face it alone. Thank you to everyone who has been there for me the past few weeks, I feel so blessed to have such a support system of friends and mentors who remind me of the TRUTH when doubt and fear creep in. Social media is the best at showing all the highlights but we tend to forget that there is more to life beyond the highlights that make us all human. We compare our lives to everyone else's "best" posts and that can create an illusion that we are the only one with "stuff" going on. Being vulnerable is terrifying but connection is all we have as humans and it's important to be relatable to each other not just in the good times. Have those conversations with friends and anyone who may need encouragement or a shoulder to cry on. And I wanted you to know if you are reading this and can relate that you truly aren't ALONE or the only one I promise. Even though in the low moments it can feel very isolating. Ignore the noise in your mind because it's not truth. We're all learning, sometimes we struggle and when we overcome, it's worth the fight. 💪🏼🌟💥
POTENTIAL IS NOT PROMISED.
Its important we remember that potential is not promised. We often make the mistake of falling in love with people's potential. We deny their current reality, driving through all the red flags and ignoring all their inconsistencies because we get so wrapped up in the fantasy of how great they COULD BE for us. We can see all they can really be. They have some great traits. We begin to envision what life with the ideal them would look like. We see those romantic walks along the beach with them, as we share a bottle of coconut water with the two straws intertwined. (Thats my vision lol, leave me alone). A Cute moment. We then convince ourselves that we can "help them." We make them our project and get to work... "she WOULD BE perfect for me, IF she would just stop *insert thing the thing thats unacceptable to us*.." .. "He's just misunderstood, if i can help him stop doing * insert destructive behaviour* then he WOULD be the perfect *insert romantic role*" ..The question we must ask ourselves is, what is the person we are talking to DOING RIGHT NOW? (Notice i said "doing" not what they are saying. Actions always reveal the truth).. ARE YOU OKAY WITH DATING THEIR CURRENT REALITY? ... Are they working at fulfilling their own potential right now? ... If they arent doing that right now, chances are they won't do so when you get together with them. Potential is not promised. If you arent okay with dating their current reality, then keep it moving. YOU CAN'T CHANGE THEM. We can't help someone who isn't currently already trying to help themselves. Its not your job to save people. You can throw people a life jacket but its up to them to put it on. Participation is needed. Gone are the days of saving people. For us to love someone solely for who they could be is to deny their current reality. We don't love them, we love what they could be, but that person doesn't exist. You already know something is off. You're not being irrational.
Success first comes from within. It’s the success of over coming your insecurities, the success of breaking through your personal, mental and emotional limitations. The success that makes YOU of value instead of owning something of value. Just because you fail doesn’t make you a failure, just because you lose doesn’t make you a loser. We experience the most growth through our losses and failures and we gain the most strength by picking our selves up and trying again. Sometimes it will happen on the first try, sometimes after a few and sometimes you have to be relentless and lose and fail 100 times over and over for that one incredible triumph, then turn that triumph into something that makes all that time and struggle worth it. You’ll enjoy the person you’ll become over the journey, though some people will not enjoy the person you’ve become because they have yet to become it them selves. Remember that it’s your energy that creates your reality. You get what you put out good and bad, Negative and positive. Create your success within and watch your desired world unfold. #motivational#motivated#happiness#choosehappiness#forgiveness#realtalk#createyourself#createyourself#createyourlife#createyourreality#becomemore#becomeonewithnature#becomeyourenergy#mentalsuccess#love#triumph#truth 💯 #truth
