Idag sa någon klok människa att en av de saker som är mest skadliga med sociala medier som till exempel instagram är att vi jämför de vi följers tillrättalagda, utvalda och filtrerade utsida med vår egen insida. Därför blir diskrepansen däremellan naturligtvis väldigt stor, och det skapar lätt stress, oro, ångest och självtvivel. Känner ni igen er? Det gör jag.
Jag har under i princip hela mitt liv brottas med en låg självkänsla. Jag är efter flera år i själsligt djupdyk och reflektion relativt medveten om varför det blivit så, men trots att jag är 36 år har jag både bättre och sämre dagar där tvivlet på att jag duger lägger sordin på tillvaron på ett sätt som jag rent intellektuellt kan förstå är djupt ledsamt men som jag ändå står helt handfallen inför. De där starka känslorna av att inte vara bra nog, snygg nog, smart nog, räcka till och vara önskvärd slår ut det sunda förnuftet på tre röda och det är en ständig utmaning son kräver mycket arbete för att hålla i schack.
Jag har i vuxen ålder försökt vara så transparent jag kan med mina känslor och mitt mående, men då jag många gånger känt att den öppenheten bidragit till att människor drar sig undan blir det lätt en ond cirkel jag allt oftare undviker. Vågar jag berätta om mina känslor? Vågar jag göra det inför en bekant, en ny vän, i en större grupp eller här?
Vågar jag riskera att visa mig själv på ett sätt som jag upplever att många tolkar som svagt, pubertalt, överdrivet eller dramatiskt?
Att ha dålig självkänsla är inte något jag önskar någon, men jag hoppas att genom att vara öppen med det här kunna åtminstone ge någon som känner igen sig känslan av att inte vara ensam med de här tankarna och känslorna. Då är vi i alla fall två, tillsammans, som förstår varför det ibland kan kännas väldigt svårt att orka vara just sig själv och känna sig tillfreds med det🙇♀️
I’ve spent the majority of my life focused on what I don’t like about my body.. my chunky thighs, my double chin, my big arms.. (I could go on, but won’t!) 🙅🏼♀️
I’ve wasted so much time wanting to change what I have and not being thankful for the blessing that I’ve been given of a HEALTHY body. I doubt my looks would be my concern if my health changed? 👎🏻
Since I’ve been focused on loving and accepting my body I’ve noticed a positive change in nearly every aspect of my life. A positive mind and a thankful outlook is where it is at people! 💫
✨ T L C for your body + soul, mamas ✨
The other day a friend of mine said to me, “ Amelia, you’re so confident in your own skin and you’re so sure of how you feel”. I looked at her and wondered — really? Rewind to high school, damn —to get here was no walk in the park. I was taught to hate myself, whether it be by society or my peers. Growing up underweight for most of my life was really a challenge for me. I was constantly looking ill, I was so pale they used to call me snow. I had no curve, no thighs, no nothing. I was pretty much bones. I think it’s safe to say everyone at some stage goes through phases of self hatred and I feel, it’s more prominent within girls + women, sadly. Why do we tear each other down? I’ve watched a lot of women go through different phases in their lives especially those who are accepting their age. The psyche that revolves around accepting your age and the changes that your body goes through is definitely a process, though not always an easy one. You can tell a person she looks beautiful but if they don’t feel it, it doesn’t matter. Of course, having reassurance is nice for your ears but really, it starts with the person. The soul that lives within the body. He/She has to feel good about themselves, first. What helped me growing up was knowing that everyone wants what they can’t have. I didn’t want to be a size 0. Most girls wanted it. I didn’t understand. It was through constant conversations with other women that I realised, god didn’t make me to what I wanted but he made me to what I needed to be. I will never have thighs like Aunty Yonce, but that’s okay. I’m not built that way. A woman is beautiful in whatever skin + body God puts her in. If she’s healthy, fueled with love of herself, then she be winning in life. But you don’t get there without work. I used my mind and worked with my body, learned it, and through getting to know it, I love. It’s not always an easy road but the key is gratitude, I feel. I may not have a lot of things but I have health. I have a mind that is working, a body that is healthy and my mother’s strength. I’m good, y’all. Focus on your wins. Life’s too short to be bitching about what you don’t got✌🏻
💫🎉👏A huge CONGRATS to the gorgeous Josephine for being selected to be part of the AUGUST 2018 INTAKE of the Academy of Soul Empowerment CONSCIOUSNESS COACHING™️ & SOUL BOSS™️ COURSE!! ➕ NOW INTERVIEWING - LIMITED PLACES👉🏼TO APPLY VISIT THE WEBSITE FOR DETAILS
And that’s how it all began 💗
I had taken YEARS off from exercise 🤷🏼♀️
I didn’t recognize my body or my inner dialogue 🤷🏼♀️
And I was literally choosing the worst foods for myself because I didn’t know how to pull myself out of the hole I had dug 🤦🏼♀️
BUT! One serendipitous day, I came across my coach’s instagram, and saw the energy, lifestyle, and joy I craved 😮 She too had struggled with yo-yo dieting, low self-esteem, and all-or-nothing thinking, but had found a community and opportunity that changed EVERYTHING! 💫
Something within me KNEW I had to reach out and find out more, and once I did, my true self told me that THIS WAS IT. I BELIEVED I could reclaim my health, my happiness, my body, and my identity. So. 👏🏻 I. 👏🏻 Did. 👏🏻
You don’t have to have the skills or the know-how from the get-go. That will come. Just have the belief that you can commit and handle the learning experience as it happens! 💗
If you’re considering #cosmeticsurgery it’s important to make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons. Only have surgery for you, to improve your #selfesteem and #confidence - not to please anyone else.
Do you wake up stoked for Mondays or dreading it? This morning I was laying in bed thinking back to when I worked retail. I use to jump outta bed right before my alarm would go off, literally JUMPING out of bed, swearing, freaking out sending myself into a anxiety attack thinking I was late 🙈 Not to mention stressing out poor Dylan the first few times it happened back when we moved in together 😳 He probably thought he moved in with a nut case 😂 I can laugh about it NOW but I use to deal with the worst anxiety & straight up dread when it came to going to work. I'm also someone who hated being late and was a people pleaser so being late to a job was the worst. I enjoyed working with people in customer service but DISLIKED feeling stuck, tired, unfulfilled by working the same day in and out, stressed by a 9 to 5. This morning waking up with no alarm, cuddling with Dylan before he went to work, its things I never take for granted even being after being my own boss for almost 3 years. Now sipping on my coffee, happy, fulfilled while I work reading messages from my challengers seeing amazing results in their fitness seems UNREAL thinking about where I started 4+ years ago🙏🏼 I spent too much time building someone else's dream before I decided I was OVER IT 🙅🏻 I deserved more out of my life then to live paycheck to paycheck to pay bills & live a life I really wasn't LIVING. I hope you don't settle for dreading your job, feeling frustrated and stuck like l did for 4 years TOO LONG. You deserve MORE. To chase your dreams. To live a life you wake up excited for Mondays! This week kicks off my next Become A Live In Love Coach Workshop 👯 I never share any of this to brag but in hopes to PAY IT FORWARD to you. I am looking for women to mentor who are ready to make their fitness their business, who are ready to change lives starting with their own & are done settling for less 👊🏻 If you've ever wondered what I do as a coach, how I fired my boss at 22 with no college degree + no fitness background before coaching go fill out my application in my bio ASAP 👉🏻📲 Remember if you don't like the way your life is going YOU have the power to change it 💞
Ahhh the judgementality (is that even a word? 😛)... it humors me at times but also gets annoying... I realize people will have differing opinions but let’s please mind our owns, thanks :) my bad that I enjoy being out and about at “my age”, my bad I like traveling and meeting new people, seeing new places, my bad for not enjoying staying in and watching tv and being boring (that’s my opinion 😉😘) my bad for not desiring the whole white picket fence, 2.3 children, 9-5 rat race fucking job, my bad that I enjoy music festivals, ugh such a child right?? My bad that I am dreaming big and looking to help humanity in my own way, shit, y’all obviously know what’s right for “people like me”, guess I’m just a big, immature, dope for thinking the way I do 😏 Look, I’ma enjoy what I enjoy, you enjoy what you enjoy, I’ma do me, you do you... love ya!! 😙 Reason I wrote all this besides the rant is in hopes that it may help and inspire anyone who reads this who may be in a similar situation to realize they should not listen to the naysayers, own who you are, own how you are, and don’t apologize for being you.. unfortunately there will always be the people who don’t agree with you.. don’t be like them, let them do their thing, they’re obviously super smart and happy and know everything, personally I like being big, immature, and dopey #rantoftheday 😂
We can be so quick to criticize ourselves, judge ourselves, and even be mean to ourselves. When's the last time you took a minute to applaud yourself? To appreciate and acknowledge your accomplishments? To appreciate and acknowledge the amazing person you are? Take more time for that, things will start to feel a little different 💓
I remember the times when I felt homesick and couldn't fall asleep at night. "What am I doing here?", this thought always crossed my mind and didn't leave me alone.
Today I got to the point that feeling "home" isn't about the exact destination, city, street. It's about what you feel inside, what you bring to this life. If you're disconnected with inner you, you won't feel comfortable living neither in the place where you were born and raised, nor in the city of your dream.
And you may feel like home in different parts of the world. You just bring home into yourself, stay honest to the world inside and outside ✨ // Так о чём это я? На сегодняшней вечерней прогулке я осознала, что полюбила город, который ещё пол года назад клеймила самыми ужасными словами. Теперь коллекционирую различные улочки и парки в воображаемом альбоме "Мои любимые места в Рязани" 🌇
What people say selfies are: A photo of oneself taken either by people who are a) completely full of themselves or b) lack any self esteem and are dying for public attention
What selfies really are: A photo of oneself taken by someone who a) Liked the way they looked that day (when did that become a crime?), b) worked on their hair, makeup, etc. and wanted to share it, c. or by someone who just WANTED TO for literally any other reason!
Here’s my selfie today ☺️ Posting because I did Green 💚 Eyeshadow and I NEVER have before. I think it turned out ok for my first try! (My brow game is weak though 😩) #bodypositive#selfesteem#womenempowerment#motd#positivity#doyou#eyemakeup#redhair
Somewhere in the middle of being driven by “what other people think” and the tension between desire for approval and the fear of disapproval, are we missing what we really want?
Since childhood, some of us have been trying to get approval, trying to get people to like us and think highly of us. We may be afraid that people will leave us if they disapprove of our actions. We may look for approval from those who have none to give.
These unmet needs for approval and love from our past give others control over us. These needs can prevent us from acting in our own best interests and prevent us from cultivating the very self-esteem and love we are looking for.

◇ The Body as Art ◇
Last week I lounged around in the nude while a room full of people studied my body and created pieces of art inspired by what they saw. My thoughts on life modelling as an act of self-love, on the blog now. Link in bio x
🎨 by an artist at @lifedrawing_melbourne - If this is your piece, please let me know so I can credit you (and thank you) 💖
💫L i f e is waaay more easy when you stop trying to control and you relax and trust.💫

➕ Every disappointment outwardly awakens us to our divine responsibility to love and heal ourselves inwardly. •••Eryka Stanton•••
➕How can we expect to be valued by others when they don’t know how to value themselves? You are inherently worthy. ☝🏽 •••Eryka Stanton•••
➕KIND WORDS by one of my current CONSCIOUSNESS COACHING™️ students➕
“This course has been a game changer in my life. I went into it not fully understanding what it was all about but I could feel a power in Eryka that I've never experienced in a person before and I wanted to learn what she had to teach. .
Many months on now and I can say I have been transformed. Through Eryka’s guidance, I have cultivated so much Love within myself which I could not fully access and now have the skills to help others do so too. She is a person who Embodies pure Love and she shows us how to cultivate this in ourselves. .
I wish all beings could have access to this course, our world would be a very different place. So powerful, so practical, a gift to Humanity. I feel very blessed to have been brought to it.”
