Sometimes it's the little things that make you feel on top of the world. Sunshine, no work, FRIDAY, ABBA singalongs, a jacket potato for lunch (been craving for days) and a fun day out with the kids. . I'm on a lovely high ready for the weekend!

Also, I messed up. Thought I was off this weekend, I'm not. 3 days of no training 😑 #trt #testosterone #recovery
We've been conditioned our entire lives to hide who we are. Having the courage to be vulnerable and show our true selves is extremely freeing. I encourage you to speak your truth, follow your heart's deepest longings, and stop living according to the restrictive rules society has set for us. This is how we become free sovereign beings. This is how we change the world. We can do this! We ARE doing this! . . . . . #freedom #bethedifference #bethechange #beyourself #riseup #paradigmshift #takebackyourlife #speakthetruth #bewhoyouare #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth

Anxiety attacks at work suck 😭 Big shout out to those who go through it daily and pull themselves out of it. Those who speak freely about it and reach out to others. It really happens to more people than you think, and to people you'd never expect it to. I am one of them 💪🏽 . . #fightthegoodfight #everydayisabattle #mentalhealth #livetofightanotherday #anxiety #dontletitconsumeyou #itdoesnotdefineyou
I had a girl tell me that trans guys have it better than trans girls. I believe it's subjective, but I also believe that comparing problems with the goal to see who "has it worse" is a toxic behavior, because it invalidates people. It's like people get so protective of their bad experiences, that they forget to move forward. Almost as if having a rough life is anything to brag about. I believe it's just as bad as people saying "there are so many people who have it worse than you!" #trans #transgenderpride #transgender #transpride #transphobia #depression #ptsd #mentalhealth #mentaldisabilities #mentaldisorder #mentalhealthawareness

Listening to that voice within that tells us, “this isn’t working, leave now and never go back” is vital to our mental health. . Trust yourself. Not all relationships are worth saving. If it involves any sort of abuse, you have to end it. This can be a mother verbally berating a daughter. This can be a husband physically hurting a wife. This can be children holding past failures over a parent’s head and punishing for the bad thing for eternity. This is even be an unappreciative employer using and overworking an employee making them do the work of 3 & 4 people. It is NEVER ok to stay in an abusive unhealthy relationship. . What unhealthy relationship do you need to sever? Do you need assistance cutting ties? How do you imagine your life will be once it’s completely over? Do you think you can safely separate from that unhealthy relationship? What is your timeline for getting this done? . #love #listen #trust #flourish #thrive #live #positivepsychology #healthyrelationships #women #motivation #inspiration #queens #protectyourpeace #happy #mentalhealth #queenseason

Evening reading, it’s aimed at children who have anxiety or feel like they don’t fit in and how it’s ok to not, and most importantly things will get better. It’s written as a poem, fantastic read. The author is brilliant, he has anxiety too and understands, look this guy up. #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness

19.10.2018 | Breathe | அநாஹதம் | © I listen to sounds and songs to send me away to places I have only a rhythm to keep up to. I only have to move my body to make it on top. I sit on windy terraces with some sweet company, laughing, making fun and cracking up under heavy clouds that roll and thunder threateningly. Midnight rain is mesmerising. It takes a different kind of disappointment to come here, this place where the little things stay little and enjoyable. That's all it takes to smile now, a few crass jokes made in a faded T-shirt and shorts, messy hair and a dullness in the eye. But crisp air meets the nostrils every morning, and the same birds chirp at the window. The cats still bring bats home, and we still release the odd snake into the bushes. The same job beckons, the same life calls me to rise to the same occasions daily. And every day, setting my heart on a tune sung by The Proclaimers, I prepare to walk mile after mile, kilometre after kilometre. It's not ideal, this life. It's not purposeless, this time. It's aimless, this circumstance. It's not useless, this drive. Whether faith dictates it or the wind blew it in my ear, I don't know, but every time I break down, I hurt more than myself... And the Right I am slowly learning I have is the Right to enforce my responsibility to make myself a force in this world.

Lord, it’s clear to me that we have begun seeking approval from everybody under the sun except the one approval that actually matters, You. We’re looking for something only you can provide, and it’s killing us. You don’t “like”our photos, you don’t comment on our posts or send us friend requests. The ironic part is that despite this You and You alone are the most accessible friend we have. Help is to break the cycle of approval addiction and focus on Your approval. Social media can be a burden or a blessing, which one will we choose? #prayerpause
It may have taken me 90 minutes to actually get my workout started after I chugged my pre-workout this morning but it’s done. Not all days we are motivated or feeling it. I was tired and cold all morning and I couldn’t find my motivation. But I know if I don’t get it done I will feel even worse. I never regret doing it but I would regret skipping it. A sweat session is also a release for my mind and mental health. I don’t walk out on my kids or marriage on a bad day. I don’t walk out on a job I love on a bad day. I don’t skip my workout days either because I made a promise to myself after losing 40 pounds and getting into a good mental and physical health place that I would never quit. Don’t quit on your commitments to yourself. You don’t like letting others down so don’t let yourself down either!
Grateful for the overwhelmingly positive feedback. 😊 Earlier this week, I presented remarks to the SF Board of Supervisors (City Council) on my Civil Grand Jury team’s report on crisis intervention training. We want police, public health, and city leadership in general to better partner with each other to humanely help residents with severe mental health needs get access to resources. #SanFrancisco #mentalhealth #crisisintervention #sfcityhall #sfgov #progress #leadership #urbanism #report #suitandtie #milestone

@alltimelow (Missing You lyric)^ - I quit Group (therapy) today. We're halfway through, so some people might find it stupid to have dropped out, but it was somehow making me worse (comparing myself & feeling "good" about eating less than others... Which is so bitchy, I know. I also know that it's "Ana", because I care about the people & hope they find themselves again) . I'm not really in the "recovery" mindset at the moment, in fact, I'm stuck right in ED world at the moment. Which is also why I found it pointless me attending, when I haven't been putting much effort into changing. I do have days when I realise that recovery is an option, but that doesn't make it any easier to embark on that journey; I've tried a few times, but i always give up. I'm just going to roll with it all at the moment, & after Christmas I will be having therapy at the ED service/hospital, but back to an individual setting. This now means that I can go back to the ED support group that I went to on Tuesdays (a different one, not NHS), which I'm soooo happy about🙈 I understand why NHS services are rigid and held by time-constraints, but this group is totally not like that. If I need to have a rant about stuff, I can, whilst we also work on tasks & stuff to help with/ kickstart recovery. I've missed it a lot, as it does really help me to have that kind of support, so I'm excited for Tuesday 😂 The ED service are contacting my GP about me dropping out/having more treatment in a couple of months / my condition worsening, so I'm going to have to go for regular appointments (blood tests & weigh ins, can't wait😩). I am finding a bit of motivation to change due to not wanting to fuck up my uni course... I just about got through college without getting kicked out because of being off (because of this). So if anything, group made me more self aware, & I met some lovely people who I hope get through their own EDs💖 #edrecovery #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #alltimelow #bands

“But photos don’t show it all - the really REALLY hard days, the extreme anxiety and grief I’ve dealt with in the past, the rock bottom that I hit during college. They don’t show the tears, the racing heart, the irrational thoughts I used to have about my life, myself and my body. ••• And I’m overjoyed today to say I take such better care of my mental health and because of that I AM that laughing, happy, bubbly girl 85% of the time. And the other 15%? I still struggle at times. I get anxious (especially after my I have my UC injections). I get fearful (mainly about UC). I get overwhelmed. Because that is LIFE, but I have the TOOLS now to help myself and I don’t feel ashamed to admit when I have those moments any longer. ••• If you’re struggling - seek help, don’t be ashamed to admit you need it (my counselor in college was the hugest help and I am so incredibly grateful that I was guided to see him) and love yourself. Love yourself so dang hard through the difficult days, weeks, months and even years. Give yourself grace and know you CAN and WILL see better days. You deserve to feel happy, worthy and enough (because you are!!!)” 📷: @blondegoneclean #YourAdvekit

It has been a tough week but lmao it’s nothing compared to the next week. It’s simple I’ve an appointment every single day. But I’m well surrounded in this trial ( don’t know the good translation?) . Thursday will be the hardest; I’m gonna meet my advocate to establish my speech for the complaint. To file this complaint will be fuckin hard to me. Im feeling so fucking fragile at this moment. I hope that the victim’s words gonna be released and that those motherfuckers will pay accordingly with their actions. Pour être franche j’ai peur de déterrer des émotions que j’avais bien cachées, dans des tiroirs fermés à double tour 🔐 . J’ai peur de ce tsunami 🌊 que je vais me prendre dans la gueule. J’ai l’habitude de verrouiller mes émotions en bonne #borderline que je suis parce que j’en ai putain de peur. Je ne veux pas me rappeler de cette période au fond de moi. Mais j’irai jusqu’au bout. Maman m’a dit merci ce matin. Merci parce qu’elle aussi , en a marre de voir sa fille se traîner des boulets à chaque pied sans être reconnue de puis presque deux décennies. Et on en a chié toutes les deux. Chacune a sa manière. Mais toujours liées dans l’enfer de la maladie 😷. Je veux tourner cette page. Je veux l’inscrire sur cette putain de plainte et la brûler a jamais. Je fais pas ça pour me venger, avec cette putain de justice française je serais bien incapable de me rassasier de la peine ( s’il est déclaré coupable) qu’il va se prendre. Je le fais pour moi. Changer mon rapport aux hommes, à mon corps sali et complètement bousillé, à ma sexualité en vrac, je le fais pour ma famille, pour cette maman qui en a fait des insomnies pendant que j’étais fourrée tous les trois jours en HP ou aux urgences. Pour mon père aussi, qui a été je le regrette mis à l’écart et qui n’a pas toujours compris ma détresse. Mais je le fais avant tout pour avancer. Et plus j’y pense, plus je me sens vaillante et vaindicative. Je vais tout niquer. . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #bpd #ptsd #rapesurvivor #metoo #rapevictim #survivor #recovery #ootd #outfit #outfitoftheday #softgrunge #grunge #grungestyle #frenchie #look #grungeaesthetic #aesthetic #tripleS #endofrapeculture

This is not something I thought I’d bring up because I thought I finally had it under control.... I am not okay. Unfortunately seasonal depression hit me like a bus a few 天前發佈... I’ve lost interest in pretty much everything, I’ve stopped talking to pretty much everyone, I can’t sleep anymore and I just feel like a burden on everyone. I hate my body and I hate the way I look. I’m not in a good place right now but I am working on getting help... for those of you I haven’t answered in days or even weeks... I apologize 😞 I’m doing my best to be happy and positive like I used to be... but lately the world seems to be weighing me down. I don’t like the way I am right now.. and I hope I can get back to the way I was before.. I just need people to understand that I’m not ignoring you because I don’t like you, I just don’t have the energy to carry on a conversation anymore... but I promise I’ll be back, I just need time to myself to figure things out and get the help I need to be me again ❤️ I love you all and I appreciate the understanding during this time. • • • #photography #models #instagood #instalike #model #modeling #modellife #fashion #fitnessjourney #fitnessmodel #fitness #girlswithmuscle #girlswithtattoos #stretchedears #follow #followtrain #canada #photooftheday #outfitoftheday #beautiful #gorgeous #selfie #me #modelstatus #vapelife #browneyes #fall #vape #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth

The Stratus 💨 Charcoal, classic, comforting
Almost 3 年前發佈 I decided it was time to get healthy. Healthy doesn't necessarily equal skinny, y'all. I was skinny but I was also exhausted, cranky, praying for nap time, drinking too much dr. Pepper, and shoving chocolate muffins in my face. If you worked with me at CMH, I would like to apologize for my constant trips to the gift shop for refills. 😂 I was simply "surviving" #motherhood not enjoying it. You know how everyone says, "Enjoy this now because it goes by so quickly!"? It's hard to enjoy when you're body seems to be working against you. I remember laying on the couch and my daughter actually told me to go drink another cup of coffee. 😣 I wasn't being the mom and wife that I needed/wanted to be! Now I'm thankful for natural energy, I'm thankful for the inflammation that has gone away, for the more stable moods, for blood sugar control, and gut health. I'm thankful for yoga and the mental health and confidence it's given me. I'm thankful for the amazing women I've met that are now lifelong friends. I'm thankful for health. When you feel good, it shows - Inside and out.
(I blurred out the messy basement-it’s still not finished & I haven’t had time to work on the gym🙈 downside of owning your own business🤷🏼‍♀️) I’m going to get real &raw with y’all. I don’t have the perfect body. It’s not super toned or defined, I weigh more than a BMI chart will tell you I should, &I probably couldn’t keep up with my (future) MIL in the gym 😂 but that’s ok. I used to obsess with where I COULD be, where I WOULD be, so much that I never got there. I’ve always struggled with an unhealthy body image. I was never the “skinny” friend. I wasn’t chubby but I wasn’t stick thin. I also never really felt like I fit in. From the outside you would have thought I did, but there are not even words for how much I DID NOT... no one had any idea that I was an incredibly depressed &anxious person... my whole life. That many of those so called friends also bullied me /stabbed me in the back, but I wanted so badly just to fit in &be “normal” I put up with what I had to. How sad is that?! All of the pain &damage from younger years aside, I’m here to talk about mental &physical well being. You will NEVER reach your goals, dream body, or dream life until your mind is right. I have tried almost every “healthy” thing out there. I’ve worked out super hard &quit. I’d go all or nothing, fall off the wagon, &stay off until the next time. My mindset was to do this just for right now until I get to where I want to be. I would restrict my diet so much there was no way it was sustainable. Failure consumed me every time. Depression would set in. Anxiety of starting again &never getting to where I wanted to be would hold me back. I don’t have the metabolism or body others do, so I would tell myself that’s my excuse. I’m just supposed to be this way. For y e a r s this was my life. I HATED mornings, hated exercise, &only understood a limited amount of “healthy” foods. N O W• ➡️➡️➡️the rest is in the 3rd pic! (Didn’t fit here)🙈
*** FUN FACT FRIDAY*** Being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical well-being, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. . . . . #values #positive #positivity #downday #happy #icl #ichooselife #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #anxiety #depression #trees #nature
leave me alone
Ever since I can remember I have wanted to be a Mum, and for fourteen long years I have woken every single morning thanking my lucky stars that my dreams came true. And through good times, and bad, I have dedicated my life to my children, and I don’t begrudge that for one second. . . That said, this week has been one of the most significant moments in my journey through motherhood - leaving my children for the very first time, going abroad without them, and doing something entirely for myself. And where as I thought I would spend the whole week yearning for home, feeling guilty about leaving the children and worrying about the fact they were so very far away, the truth is, I haven’t. And I make no apologies for that. . . It sounds very cliche but this week has been a real journey of self discovery and I feel as though I’ll be leaving Tenerife tomorrow having changed for the better. I have done things this week that I never dreamt I’d have the nerve to do, I’ve been far been braver, far bolder, I’ve laughed a little louder, and met some truly lovely people. . . And whilst I am so looking forward to going home to my babies feeling more refreshed, more confident, more grateful for all that I’ve experienced and all that I have waiting for me, I’m really going to miss this place. @clickstay #myclickstay #clickstaytravelblogger

Too excited to display these at my next show #artshow #uplift
looking back at myself a few months, weeks ago, maybe less than that even, i have noticed incredible change, change that I am proud of and see so much as personal achievements. my mental state was an agonising minefield where one wrong thought, feeling or situation would occur and off all a sudden, the hazardous explosives would spring to life, demons yet again set free to wander the depths of my mind, inevitably leaving myself to become hazardous towards myself. self harm, self abuse, self neglect, self doubt and the constant thought of death and questions of my purpose playing on repeat. take my back to a few months or less and i didn't see a glimpse of potential within myself or potential within being apart of anyone's life which would add on to the stress and distraught of purpose. everything I did, I said, I acted upon never felt good enough, like I was a blank figure, a ghost in fact. but sitting here now, building up a blog to begin samples of my journalism pieces to show to the world, being surrounded with the best family, friends, soulmates and support is allowing me to understand why it wasn't my time to go and why I had to keep surviving, to get where I am going. being able to see glimpses of meaning and understanding from myself, self acceptance and self love, things that didn't make sense those months back, make me now realise why I have a purpose just like everyone does in this small world. im recovering, and on top of that, today marks me being half a year self harm free and not a single suicidal thought, tendency, anxious or negative thought has really been in my mind for close to a week now (which might sound meh but for me that's outstanding) I'm forever thankful that the days are getting that tad bit brighter and I'm getting where I want to be. thank you #mentalhealth #MentalHealthAwareness #anxiety #depression #selfharm #selfhelp #recovery #positivity
LYW Mainstays | Good morning, dear! I’ve spent a lot of time rereading, reorganizing and rethinking living well, there’s still a lot more work to do, but I am so, so excited and downright happy with where I am in this review phase! I’ve spent a lot of the week in psychology databases and reading other people’s words, and I have to say, it’s been one of the best weeks I’ve had in a long time. I am actually looking forward to more weeks like this! • Here are a few snapshots of my week: Movement. Hiking the cemetery alone, Spontaneous stretching and pacing to help my body and mind in synch up, Pacing to help give my body what it needs—movement. Rest. Acupuncture with my favorite doctor lady, Going to bed early, 20 minutes of meditation—most days. Nourishment. Lots of Pão de queijos, Heaps of roasted vegetables, Cravings for queso fresco y queso oaxaca, Planning a second Sunday Supper with new friends. Nature. Taking “Happy Hour” outside, Tending my flowers, Hide-and-seek in the woods with the kids. Relationships. Celebrating 18 years—18 years! with John today! Talking with Stanford with the help of @cindybrody , Missing Stan, Planning Thanksgiving with family, time alone with my thoughts. Spirit. Creating an altar to honor Stan, Feeling Stan’s continued presence in the house, The sense that I know I am on to something, Expression. Lots of reading, That giddy feeling and jubilant dance I feel when I read research, The happy impatience with creating something new, This weeks’ show and tell with you.😊 • See you next week!#liveyourwell
292 of 365. Ate within my calorie range, but more than I usually would— which is fine. I’m cruising this week and I feel at peace with that. My goal is to maintain this week. Delayed yesterday’s workout because my bed’s allure was too powerful to overcome. . . FINALLY went to this fancy ass light store that I’ve wanted to visit for the past 4.5 years (@lightology ). Man, oh, man. So many beautiful lights and not as expensive as I’d imagined. Merry Christmas to me, I’m gonna treat myself with a light. . . Went to the Halloween store for inspiration and was only mildly inspired. Glenda the Good Witch, maybe? Beyoncé? Maleficent? There’s a 90% chance I end up in my bed in yoga pants anyhow. We’ll see. . . Watched a beautiful sunset (this photo does it no justice) and napped. . . Happy weekend, kids. . . #selfcare #weightlossjourney #weightlossmotivation #weightlosstransformation #bingeeating #depression #fattofit #blackwomendoworkout #qsymia #anxiety #healthylifestyle #mentalhealthawareness #dbtskills #fatandhappy #rny #obama #healthywage #bodypositive #bodypositivity #selflove #mindfulness #plussize #bodyacceptance #fitnessmotivation #obesetobeast #extremeweightloss #mentalhealth #fatgirlfedupsdietbet #weightlossbeforeandafter #blackgirlmagic

Why are you choosing to be bitter ? Why do you give up the sec something doesn’t go your way ? Why do you always have something to say ? Why do you choose to spread negativity instead of love ? - What you attract is a reflection of yourself. If your not willing to confront yourself & face your fears, if your not willing to change.... don’t complain about where your life is going, this is a life long process, you’re gonna find yourself always complaining but there’s no reason to spread it. Keep that shit to yourself, we need more lovers. So many people spread awareness of something really negative while feeding it more negativity. I don’t see how that helps, but it’s why I started posting everyday & since I have I’ve seen MULTIPLE people do the same positive posts. (Thank you 2 those who dm me, not a lot of ppl show support to who or what inspires them so I appreciate it) Energy is contagious af & your currency in this universe. What do you want your energy to say about you ? - If you don’t like your life, it’s time to start making better choices. #love #mentalhealth #soulfood #instagood
