Having suffered with eating disorders throughout most of my teen and adult life, body image has always been a sore spot. from starving myself until i was quite literally skin and bones to limiting my food intake so much so, that i was unable to produce milk for my baby. (the guilt was something i suffered tremendously with during pnd). i can’t describe how proud i feel looking at this photo. this is the strongest and happiest in my body i have ever felt. anyone that knows me knows i am all arms and legs, a gangly spider. so seeing this muscle shows me how far i’ve come and how hard i’ve worked. how skinny isn’t always the best way to be, but rather healthy, strong and fulfilled. i now eat what i want and i don’t beat myself up over calories or portion control and most importantly i have forgiven myself for past mistakes. instead i eat so i have energy to focus on building strength and to have the fuel be the best mummy i can be.

The other day i was watching a movie on netflix and i cried. my son gunner asked was i was crying and i said this movie was sad. he said then why ya watching it. i said because crying is my favorite.
his face puzzled and then he walked away.
a few days later i was watching tv again and was laughing really loud at the show.
gunner in the other room asked why i was laughing and i said because laughing was my favorite. he responded with but i thought crying was your favorite.
i giggled and said well that is too. i explained that i love to feel. that whatever it is that i am feeling i like to really feel it. i like to let it explode out of me in such a rush that it’s hard to contain.
he shrugged his shoulders and said mom you’re weird and started to walked away.
i screamed after him. being weird is my favorite!! he laughed, i laughed we all laughed.
then he ran back to me and gave me a big explosive hug.
i have never been one to hide my emotions and i use to worry that it would be too much for my kids. (i always worry that i’m too much.)
but i believe that it’s healthy for them to see me experience feelings and for them to know that it is okay to feel them.
like the other day when i was unpacking my art room and in the middle of it all for no other reason then i felt it. i started to sob. ⠀⠀
instead of them running away or i don’t know being embarrassed that i was crying. my kids surrounded me, hugged me. kissed and wiped my tears away and even brought me their favorite stuff toys.
they learned compassion and i received the love i needed in that moment. and then i was able to wipe my tears, laugh and keep moving forward.
depression may make you feel like you are alone but compassion for those you share your deep feelings with reminds you that you are not. and i believe it’s good to release it in all forms.
that is why all the feelings are my favorite. it allows me to breathe into the next one. to find a an outlet to miniver them so i can harness their power.
for me, that’s my art, writing and kitchen dance parties. what do you use your feeling power for?
😂move along fears 🚫 there's nothing for you here. bye 👋 💎🍄🌈🦋🔥💥🌿👽🐆🔮
Photographie juillet 2019 #shotoniphone qui me rappelle celle que j'étais et celle que je suis devenue aujourd'hui ; tout ce chemin parcouru, et pas juste dans les montagnes et la photographie.
cette photo marque le jour 1 de ma randonnée sia 2019, une randonnée de plusieurs jours, seule dans ces montagnes gaspésiennes. ce feeling ressentie me manque. sia, on se voit bientôt! ⛰⛰⛰
comme m'avait déjà dit ma mère à cette époque : il faut s'aimer assez pour se vouloir du bien. je l'adore cette femme. elle a raison encore aujourd'hui. 🤍
Fireworks were booming 💥 over the ocean and i was playing ‘helicopter’ with this little nugget. i can still hear the sequels of delight as she flew off my feet onto my knees and then collapsed on my chest. her sweet giggles and smiles warming my heart.
we were so lucky to even be there! at that time in life we couldn’t even afford to go to on a vacation, let alone stay in that ocean front condo….
enter my in-laws to the rescue! their time share made it happen and being with the whole fam for a week was a gift.
through those years we were treated w many gifts. dinners out, trips, and even a new stainless steel garbage can. it sounds funny, but it was something i really wanted but it was $60 and there was no way we could afford it.
coupon cutting was a necessity, and embarrassing moments of having to put things back at checkout were the norm. we were terrified of hospital bills or household repairs and we always had less money than month. we were always under financial stress.
looking back though those difficulties times were good. without them we couldn’t appreciate where we are now. this life we live now, in our new home, being able to help others with their needs, to relieve their stress and show others love.… we are so grateful.
god led us to a different way. he knew… that leading us would allow so many more lives to be changed. when i look at the future i see so much hope and light. i see people that need this, that want to be able to offer others that same hope and light in life… are you that person?
what is stopping you from going for it? i understand change can be scary… but not when you have some beside you to show you the way and to help you succeed. you will have that. helping others is what we do….. and that is the best part of this business.
are you ready?
🔥"if your habits don't line up your dream...
you need to either change your habits, or change your dream."
quote by @johncmaxwell
a lot of people have created the habit of complaining about their life, instead of developing the habit of creating their dreams.
long story short-
your lifestyle is created by your habits.
your habits come from your subconscious mind and are created by the things you do daily.
it takes the same amount of energy to complain as it does to dream.
but one action will tear you down and hold you back, while the other one will build you up and propel you forwards.
the bad news:
if you don't make a change, nothing changes.
the good news:
you have the power and the choice to create new habits at any age and under any circumstance.
i've just launched a free online training that will show you 6 ways to access your subconscious mind and program it to help you achieve your goals...
so you can live the lifestyle you want.
go to the link in my bio to watch the training (@feeling.powerful )
watcha waiting for? you have the power to create the life you want. 🔥 i'm cheering you on.
For the first time in god knows how long i’ve actually started to be motivated to hit the gym again. it’s been super tough to find the motivation to go as i always feel super drained after work. all i want to do was crawl into bed and fester into my stresses. but instead i have to push past that and find a way that helps me manage this. one way which helps is going to the gym and focusing on small goals to push myself and achieve things i didn’t think i could do. i am at the start of a long process of dealing with my feelings but i know that this is at least a good step in feeling both physically and mentally more positive. my first little goal is i’m focusing on building up my running as i cannot for the life of me run at all!! but i’m hoping with time and patience and setting small achievable goals i will get there 🏃🏻♀️🏋🏻♀️ #postivevibes#fitnessmotivation#fitnessjourney#myfitnessjourney#youvegotthis#fitness#gymmotivation#happythoughts#personaljourney#feelinggood#feelingpositive#feelingpowerful

🚨choose a number of happiness !!!🚨
is your answer 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6? which way makes you happy and what kind or personality do you have? 🤍✨
Sometimes it can be difficult to reach your goals in isolation or keep motivated to achieve on your own. this is where i invite you to find an accountability partner. in positive psychology coaching i will be an accountability partner for you, but it can be beneficial to have someone in your life too.
an accountability partner supports you to reach your goals. they can be understanding and someone you can share and discuss obstacles. your accountability partner will help keep you focused and introduce some friendly competition or external reasons to complete what you set out to do. this person could be a friend or an acquaintance, a mentor, a coach...make sure it is not a complicated relationship - you need the full support of this person and a cheerleader! someone to raise awareness and challenge you in a safe, supported and healthy way.
make sure you are clear on expectations, boundaries and discuss your terms; do you want them to give you feedback? do you want them to remind you or will you approach them? how exactly do you need them to support you to their goals? is the relationship reciprocal? what exactly do they need?

Weight loss is not the goal. it may be a result, but it is not the goal.
the goal is to learn to love yourself as you are and to take care of your body accordingly which means feeding it the way it deserves and moving it the way it wants without punishment, without deprivation, without shame, and without loathing.
we eat right and exercise because we love our bodies, not because we hate them. and if that results in weight loss then there’s a side bonus. but if not, we love ourselves and what we can do anyway because the number on the scale has zero bearing on our worth or whether or not we deserve self love. that’s the real prize.
i spent a few years hating the way i looked and you know what? nothing got better. it wasn’t until i shifted my mindset that things took a drastic turn. yeah i’ve got extra pounds where i’d rather not have them and i’d like to change that, but i’m ok with it now. those extra pounds don’t mean i can’t be happy and love myself now. i eat better which means i feel better, and exercise has made me strong which makes me feel powerful. and it’s hard not to like your body when you feel like you could do anything, ya know?
this is why i coach. to help others make that mindset shift from punishing their bodies with restrictive dieting and exercising out of self hate, to eating in a way that’s both healthy and makes them happy, and exercising because they recognize that their body is amazing and powerful. i’m grateful so many have trusted me with that journey and believed in themselves enough to do it.
my september challenge group still has a few spots left and i want you to come with me. i won’t lie and tell you it will be easy, but i will tell you you’ll never regret putting this time and effort back into yourself. you do everything for everyone else, it’s your turn. you deserve your love and attention just as much as anyone else. come fill your cup, pour back into yourself, and fall in love with yourself.
want to chat more with me? i’d be happy to. drop me a 🙋🏼♀️ or gif, or whatever in the comments and i’ll get with you today to see if this is a good fit for you. let’s get you on your way to feeling better, yeah?
Stop caring so much about what everyone thinks and embrace that rebel goddess within you, ready to break free.
listen, you can never truly feel freedom until you release the shackles of other people’s opinions and expectations. your life isn’t yours if you always care about what other people think more than you care about your own thoughts.
i know it’s easier said than done (and why my clients pay to work with me), but i know you are f*****g powerful. you can 100% start to shift this.
try these steps to get started:
1. release people pleasing and perfectionism by simply accepting that you’ll never please everyone. you cannot control other people’s emotions. it’s not your job.
2. accept that people are judgemental, but you’re also capable of creating boundaries with people who judge you unfairly. brene brown talks about not bothering the critics who aren’t in the arena with you (those who aren’t being authentic or vulnerable).
3. get really comfortable in your own skin. part of this is through getting to know yourself better and practicing radical self-acceptance.
it’s pretty rebellious to not give a d**n what others think. that’s a great thing. you weren’t made to conform or blend in.
there is something bold within you that’s seeking freedom. you release that part of you more and more every time you ignore the critics.
you’re also not meant to do this alone.
if you’re ready to break the shackles of conformity and want to be supported by a power posse while you do it, dm me asap. i have a group program coming up that is a powerful path to freedom.
conheço a série de house of night desde os meus tempos de adolescência,mas só agora tive a coragem de completar a série
tentei replicar a personagem principal da série - zoe redbird - com algumas modificações. as tatuagens dela são azuis no livro e aqui decidi colocar metade azul e metade roxo (este último representa a cor da primeira capa do livro)
