I also need @francescaliablock ‘s book on healing through writing. ✨ The poet Marvin Bell once told me he could gauge the intensity of a friend’s depression by asking him if he was writing; if his friend said yes, then Marvin knew he was doing all right. Apart from a few poems in 2017, I haven’t written anything (beyond rambling Insta captions) since 2014. 😔 This must be remedied. #selfhelpmeobiwankenobi#thereisnotryonlydo#writing#booksonwriting#healing#magick
I feel like I REALLY need this book by @galadarling . I’ve been at rock bottom far too long. I’ve never in my life felt so lost. It’s more than needing out of this town—I need purpose and joy. I need a circle of friends and a full-time job. I need to support myself 100% and to feel in control. I need to live somewhere that makes me happy. I need to look in the mirror and not hate my reflection, and I need to not hate myself for my seemingly never-ending struggles. There has to be a way to accomplish my goals. I feel like, if I remain in Columbus, I’ll be dead at 40 of heart problems. It might already be too late... who knows? But I can’t keep getting caught up in what might happen. I’ve got to focus on my mental and physical health, and I’ve got to move on from this town. I’ve been trying to leave since 2016. I don’t want to hurt my parents by seeming ungrateful, but this is MY life. I’ve got to start living it for me. And I need to live somewhere that makes me happy. I hope someday I’m pretty, healthy, confident, and able to attract love. Everything feels so closed to me now. It’s been so long since I even had a real-life friend to hang with. 😔 Life isn’t meant to be lived in one room, all alone. NO MORE WISHING. ONLY DOING. #selfhelpmeobiwankenobi#thereisnotryonlydo#selflove
Happy Birthday to the funniest, sweetest, most creative kid. As a mom, you can't imagine your heart expanding enough to love another human as much as your first child. And then, it just happens. I'm so blessed to have Grayson on loan from the Lord for as long as He wishes. #yodalife#thereisnotryonlydo#travelwithkids#paris#meditation#prayer
My #selfcaresunday is finally going through boxes and shredding, filing, donating, trashing, recycling everything! This has been on my to do list for a long time. I go through down waves and up waves. This past month, more honestly, has been one pretty long steady down wave. I'm finally feeling my way back up. And, it's because of the encouragement from my amazing Posh team. They don't know that I've been on this down wave. I keep it to myself as much as I can. (Yea I know I shouldn't) but the constant positive vibe that my team puts out there is incredible. I never expected this random thing I did just for a discount would help me work to overcome so many inner battles I've had. I NEVER thought it would make feel that need and want to be organized again. I used to be crazy organized financially, but that went by the wayside years ago, I'm finally working towards that again. I haven't felt this motivated in awhile. It feels good. I have my posh team to thank. My gold premier who without even knowing is pushing me to be the best me I can be. Fear of failing and even succeeding is so real, it's holds me back on so many levels. Not anymore! You usually have to fail in someway to succeed. Time to embrace the process. Time to follow through with my goals. #myselfcarejourney#joinmeonmyjourney#highfunctioningdepression#selfimprovement#poshtimisticallybeautiful#startdoing#thereisnotryonlydo#failingisok#successhappens#youdeservehappiness#youdeservetobepampered#pamperingmyself#selfcareisselfrespect
After almost two weeks of vacation and not watching what I ate/drank, and no exercise, this is what happens. Swollen feet (2 weeks ago there was clear definition between my ankle and foot), and an almost 14lb weight gain. I'm shocked that it's that much, but, I know Once I get back on track, I'm good to go. I definitely learned a lot about my body on these last two weeks. #sugerequalsdeath#backinthesaddle#thereisnotryonlydo#mytrainerisgoingtokillme
💫THERE IS NO TRY, ONLY DO✨
I think that’s been my mantra for years now. It’s what helped me dig out of a rut. It’s what helped me kick my overeating 🍧addiction. It’s what helped me get my workouts. 🏋🏼♀️ in when I could barely lift my arms with 1-lb dumbbells.💪🏼
It’s what getting me thru my trip to San Diego 🏖 I embarked upon today. #ThereIsNoTryOnlyDo
I’m off to #SMMW18 (Social Media Marketing World 2018) and I gotta come clean...I’m completely freaked😯out. I’m the little wee fish 🐠 in the “big🐳fish” pond. I get such bad travel anxiety that I almost backed out at the last minute (well not for reals cuz I can’t cancel last minute)...but you get me. .
But here’s the thing...the only way I’m gonna get past the fear is to go straight thru it. 😎Dive in head first, just do it, no “I’ll try” happenin here. .
Have you taken a baby 👣step (or giant leap) lately? Was it terrifying? HELLS YA! ✊🏼Did you survive?? OF COURSE!!! Girl, share your recent “do” (not “try”) in the comments👇🏼b’low. Let’s celebrate your win together!🎉🎊
