💫what does kindness mean to you? when i was younger i thought kindness means being nice to other people and to make them happy. i thought kindness means doing the right and good thing. but as i grew older i saw kindness in so many things. kindness comes in so many forms. everyone has a different definition of kindness. kindness starts with you. it’s about your soul. knowing who you are, what is right for you and what “good” means to you. for me an act of kindness is texting your friends and asking how they are doing. catching up with a friend for coffee. sharing a dinner together. watching a movie. there are so many things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💫what does kindness mean to you?

People say that losing about 4 or 5lbs a month is healthy and normal. my brain seems to remember when we first started and i was losing much more than that a month, and is holding me to it.
instead, after years of gaining, i'm choosing to be thankful for any loss because any step in the right direction, no matter the size, gets me further away from my highest weight.
so instead, brain, remember this: when i was immobile and couldn't leave the apartment? when i would hurry through a shower because i couldn't stand long enough to take a full one? sleeping sitting up on the couch every night because i was too f*t to lay down? the swelling in my legs? being unable to use a seatbelt? walking about 100 steps a day? the people staring when i would be out of breath walking 2 minutes to check our mail? being unable to find clothes that fit? how disappointed my family was when they finally saw me? how embarrassing that trip was? being unable to breathe? losing who i was and the light in me to complete darkness and shame? bingeing 3 meals a day?
𝗗𝗼 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁’𝘀 𝗯𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘆𝗼𝘂!
lately this is a question i’ve been asking myself almost every single day. in recent weeks i’ve made a lot of major changes in my life. changed my mindset towards things, changed my daily routine, changed the way i look at myself and most recently changed careers.
i have a very clear path laid out for myself and goals that i want to meet daily. things will creep up along the way that don’t fit in to the life i’ve now envisioned for myself. whether it be someone asking me to participate in something i don’t feel comfortable in, people reaching out who i’ve tried to give myself distance from or even deciding if i wanted to accept certain job interviews or not.
in the past, i would have done pretty much anything. would’ve gone along with whatever plans were presented to me. would’ve said yes to things even if i didn’t want to do them or couldn’t afford them. would’ve sat on the phone with someone who made me feel crappy. would’ve gone on a job interview even if i knew the position wasn’t right for me.
i now view all these things so differently. i stop and ask myself if doing these activities will support the life i’m trying to build. and if the answer is no, i’m now strong enough to respectfully decline. i have the power to stick up for myself and stand my ground for what i am and am not comfortable with.
i’ve learned to voice my opinion and tell someone that i’m not ok doing what they want me to do. i’m capable of declining a call, erasing someone from my phone contacts or removing them from my social media. i know my worth and can turn down a job interview when the position is something i’m overqualified for.
i understand that to have the life i want and the life i deserve i have to be able to recognize things that don’t serve me in a positive way. i have to be able to walk away from them.
by understanding this, i am now only doing things that support the life i’m trying to create. i am doing activities that are good for me. i am surrounding myself with the most amazing and supportive people and on monday i am starting a new job that i couldn’t be more proud of. all the effort is 100% worth it. 💗

the word intimacy is derived from the latin intimatio, which means to “make known”. in order to experience something real with your lover, it’s important that you, once the episode of blind idealization ends make a conscious effort to “make yourself known” to whoever you are dating.
i made the mistake for years to end relationships every time i reached what i call the “stage of coldness”. most couples break up at this point because they realize that their partner is not perfect, they discover that it’s easier to just go back to seeing other people again because having new things feels better in the short run; but let me tell you something weird that i learned over the years – behind this pain line is where all the good s**t happens.
blissful normality occurs once you look at a human being with all their flaws, mistakes, insufficiencies, emotional baggage, and still decide that they are perfect.
maybe not perfect in common sense, but you feel in your chest that they have the potential to be perfect for you.
but how do you make it through the stage of coldness?
how do you find out whether or not your lover has the potential to be perfect for you?
my answer to this question: curiosity.
only by investigating the soul of the person, you have a crush on you can find out whether or not they could grow into the person that you need in order to make your life a masterpiece.
in this article, i share with you embarrassing teaching tales that helped me to understand that one person is indeed better than many.
shoutout to the brilliant s****l columnist @anni___we for helping me with the gathering of these questions.
in the creation of this article, i spoke to hundreds of you guys and i received invaluable pieces of advice, rich pearls of wisdom, and helpful warnings.
i will cherish and contemplate every single conversation i had with you and i will do my best to teach others what i’ve learned in the course of our conversations.
as always, you will find the full article in my bio.
you are f*****g awesome.

I see a lot of content in the self-help industry about hustling, and hustling, and hustling even more, without actually giving meaning to it.
i agree that productivity is important in order to live a great life.
but ultimately what we want is to be productive on the right thing.
and in order to find the right thing on which to be productive, for the majority of us, we must burn.
we must burn bridges, we must fall, we must reach to our lowest point.
it may well take 20 years.
and it's fine.
so i say,
it is okay to fail.
it is okay to feel lost.
it is okay to look for another path.
what matters is how we react.
we need to know that it's okay, listen to our guts and look for another bridge if needed.
burn if you must, but rise from the dust.

Comparison is an inevitable human tendency. i have seen people, especially influencers, shout aloud to not compare yourself to other people.
but still, i will stress again on this topic because no matter how many times we read it, we still compare ourselves to others. if you took the strengths of others and compared them to your weaknesses, how do you think you’d size up? and do you think this would make you feel good? it only pulls you down and makes you feel under confident and unhappy. most of the times we compare our life from celebrities/influencers on social media, regardless of having a tad idea about their weaknesses and struggles. we all know by now that they only show their happy side on social media and even if they speak about their struggles, they get one thousand supportive comments and messages, unlike the loner us.
hence, once again, a very ordinary common simple girl is reminding you to not compare yourself to anyone else and decrease your uniqueness. i won’t deny, even i do make comparisons, but now i have literally reduced it to a minimum by ‘unfollowing’ all those accounts which left a negative impact on my mental peace, ‘believing’ that everyone has their share of struggles and weaknesses, and ‘accepting’ my true precious self!
Enjoying my avo avo toast with a twist this morning 🌈✨
•in the meantime though, i wanted to share something about my day yesterday. i was feeling like i was shaming myself for not being on top of my workouts lately. i started to pressure myself into getting on the stair master and getting a super efficient workout in (one where i’d burn the most)...these thoughts reminded me of old thoughts i used to have on a regular basis.
•initially i gave in to them. i hopped on the stair master, with extremely tired...pressed start and was off. as i was going, i truly started to feel miserable. i didn’t want to be on it and it was really not what i was feeling like doing that morning. normally, the voice in my said would have creeped in...”you’re weak”, “you didn’t hit a high enough calories burned number yet”. instead, i challenged my thoughts. i realized that my worth didn’t lie in whether i overworked my body on the stair master or not. after only being on it for a minute and 30 seconds, i hopped off and went on a light walk instead. this was a huge victory.
•i wanted to share this because i want you to know thay your thoughts do not define your worth. when we are critical towards ourselves or our bodies, we lessen our self worth. but every time that we challenge those thoughts by replacing them with a kinder, less critical and balanced one we can truly re wire our thoughts. things are not black and white, we deserve compassion. start practicing more love 💕

Who’s ready for saturday morning brunch? i definitely am! i couldn’t decide between a bellini or a mimosa so... why not both? 😂🥂
Do you ever sit down with your feelings and try to understand what they are communicating with you?
this is a very pertinent process — especially if you focus on feelings that repeatedly come up within you.
for example, if you constantly feel sadness, there is a reason behind it— you may be repressing feelings of hurt that your body is trying to express. so your sadness functionally serves to remind you and bring your attention to your wound. your subconscious expresses itself only in emotion and is the incubator of many feelings that arise within you so it is important to decipher what your mind is trying to tell you.
this is true of any other emotion you may be feeling. it becomes easier to connect the dots with your emotions and what they mean the more you practice mindfulness and self-awareness. the more silence you can cultivate in your life to go inward and assess what is going on behind the scenes of your inner world, the more authentic the trail of life you walk on will be.
you will begin to do things that make you feel good, and that bring you clarity. there is no one or nothing outside of you that will bring peace to your life — that is your responsibility. you must come to terms with this: you will only be as free and happy as you let yourself be. 🧠💛

“the real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself” - maya angelou
the one thing we all do on social media is make assumptions about people. we look at profiles and we automatically judge based on what we see. you look at my profile and see a happy person, a social person, a person with a lot of amazing people in her corner. but what you don’t see are the down days and all the days in between. the days where i question everything about myself and wonder if i’m good enough. am i a good enough mom, partner, friend...do i do enough? how can i be better? comparing myself to others. always striving for perfection. i’m certain i don’t see myself at all how anyone else sees me.
