Don’t be fooled: every time I post a photo it’s a practice in courage, self-acceptance, and vulnerability. While I have fostered a good deal of self-confidence there’s always a fragment of me that worries about perception, which on one hand is normal, because we’re social creatures who want to be accepted. But here’s the thing about perception: you fundamentally can’t control what others think or do. But the good news is, you *are* in control of your own perception, which at the end of the day, has more power to change your world and your happiness than anything external. And as an added plus, when you see yourself as beautiful, kind, confident, talented, compassionate, sexy, brave, resilient, and wondrous, the world often will too! .

One of the most confronting things I have learnt about myself is, as an adult, I can sometimes still feel and act like a victim. I do everything to make it seem like I don’t, but when I am really honest with myself I know that I do. And I struggle to hold much self-compassion for that part of me. And when I read this quote 'everything happening in your life results from the way you treat yourself through thoughts, words and actions' I felt it trigger that victim in me. That young part of me that wants to defend myself and blame the external world and can find it hard to take responsibility for the choices I have made, the consequences of those choices and the relationship I have with myself. And then another, harsher part of me turns on that victim part of me and starts to blame and criticise myself for everything that has ever gone wrong. These two parts of me, these two extremes within me, do not set up a very loving relationship within me! And yes, there are unquestionably things that have happened in my life that I had no control over. My Dad dying, the share market crash, other people’s behaviours. And as children we are genuinely victims to our environment and the events that occur. But as an adult, I really get what this quote is saying. The way I treat myself through my thoughts, my words and my actions, especially when challenging things happen, fundamentally creates the life I live. I was in a workshop on the weekend and we did a session on core beliefs. Core beliefs come from experiences in our childhood and they often end up feeling like they are ‘true’ and filter how we experience our life. I was asked to choose a belief from a list that included “It is dangerous to appear weak or needy”; “I can’t trust people not to hurt me”, “I need to be different if I am to be at peace”, “I am invisible”, “I am not smart”, “I am not important”, “Nobody cares about me”. Having picked one of these (or another one that felt alive for us) we answered the following question (1) This belief impacts my life…(2) I first learned this belief from…(3) This belief limits me…. (4) This belief has supported me… When we walk into a room of strangers, when we interact in our...

This is really putting myself out there in a vulnerable space. So internet be kind....please  These photos not only display a physical transformation but more and most importantly a psychological and emotional transformation. Yes diet, exercise and my coach @n8fitness helped tremendously. But this also took ALOT of #selfcompassion #patience and rediscovering #selfworth . The last 2 years plus were a very difficult time to say the least. I have learned a lot about the world, who people are and how they treat you, and I learned and still learning a lot about myself. The road is long, and I am still on my path. I can't compare my journey or past to anyone else's, and I won't let anyone tell me who I am! My friends and followers, if there is one practice that can help promote positive changes, is self-kindness. It slowly but effectively heals your wounds from the inside out. My heart goes out to everyone who might be hurting about something physical, verbal, situational. Know you have the power to help change the course your on by how you treat yourself.  You are NOT your past, NOT how people treat you, NOT what others say... YOU ARE YOUR TRUTH! change ... It's hard, trust me, but #worthit . 🙏🏻💜☀️💕

Earlier this year, I got caught up in a pattern of self-sabotage. Little things, like not getting up when my alarm went off, I stopped journaling everyday, spending too much time on social-media comparing, not moving enough, feeling sorry for myself...

Earlier this year, i got caught up in a pattern of self-sabotage. little things, like not getting up when my alarm went off, i stopped journaling everyday, spending too much time on social-media comparing, not moving enough, feeling sorry for myself... i stopped doing the things i know i need to do to be happy and started to prioritise self-loathing. ____________________________ the "not enough" narrative took front and centre in my mind, because i let it. ____________________________ i don't feel guilt or shame for allowing this to happen, after all, a lifetime of feeling small and unimportant doesn't disappear overnight. #selfcompassion ____________________________ i am learning the confidence to show up, and take up space as my sometimes introverted, vulnerable, imperfect self. ____________________________ the only thing you need, to show up as yourself, is your own permission to do so. ____________________________ tear up the old narratives, and write yourself some new ones, because someone is always looking up to you 💕

I don´t know why this post from May suddenly disappeared, with all your loving and personal comments lost😥: As I write this text about happiness, I´m tearful and a mess. NOT because I am depressed, but because my situation is simply too much right now. To carry the burden of two severe illnesses and the effects of a traumatic upbringing, and still stay compassionate and attentive to my children and husband is a lot to handle. When a failed treatment makes my health a lot WORSE for months, it is simply too much. And that is why I want to talk about happiness. When a crisis bereaves us from the external things that we appreciate in life, we are forced to either give up or focus inwards. Since I´m not giving up, my situation pushes me to dive into my inner world. That is fundamental to create true joy. The other fundamental step to create joy and happiness is appreciating what we actually have. Crisis are good helpers with that too, because we might simply not have an opportunity to stay in the race to be more perfect or successful or richer or more powerful etc.  We are forced to focus on what we are and what we have here and now. 
I feel rich with self-understanding, connection, meaning, growth and acceptance. Suffering, grief and pain has been good helpers in obtaining all this richness. I feel like a billionaire in growth to be honest. I don´t mean that in the sense of being perfect. The list of my flaws are endless, but I have come far. And by focusing inward, I discover so much love and acceptance and motivation and happiness and engagement and playfulness and light, that I´m star struck by all the good stuff that this dark chapter is filling me up with. There is hope in our struggle. As is often said: the end can become a new beginning. 
I might not feel the greatest happiness right now, but my pain and suffering is just scratching the surface of a much deeper, more nurturing state of contentment and joy. I might cry out in agony, but it doesn´t change my deep love for this precious life. Happiness does not equal “perfect”, “comfortable” and “easy”. Happiness belongs to those of us that embrace all aspects of life; who live authentic l

Last night felt so powerful. It was all about letting go of ungrowthful stories to come back to the strong character that I am. Both my star and moon signs are in Leo so these next two months are big for me! I've been working very hard at cutting the mental web of negativity that keeps me trapped and I finally feel it falling away. My tarot reading was all about listening to my intuition and being firm in who I am. Therapy, meditation, yoga, art, and singing have helped me to remember a lost part of my self. If you feel depressed, anxious, and self-critical something inside you is in pain and needs to be acknowledged. We must listen for who else will? We are responsible for this life. When we lean into these painful parts, we begin the healing process. By giving self-love and showing self-compassion we are moving toward becoming whole. We can't be anything but ourselves if we wish to be free and happy. Let each moment of difficulty remind us the importance of being more fully who we are. Let this new moon help teach us about what it means to understand ourselves so that we may live life to the fullest. If these words resonate with you, you're already on your way. Full moon blessings to you all! .

This weekend I have had the opportunity to find a space to just relax and take some time out. ✨
There's been so much going on lately and I already know from experience how important it is when you begin to feel overwhelmed with the workload that you have to take some time out to seek clarity, to find some space to relax and really look after you. ✨
This morning I woke early (very early for me) and decided to plough on with some work I wanted to get finished.  I also took the time to appreciate the silence in the house as everyone else was sleeping and silence is something I cherish (it doesn't happen that often during the day). I made the time to meditate this morning too before carrying out a group meditation online as I know how important it is for me to practice what I peach. ✨
Mindfulness and meditation has provided me with the tools that I need in life to help me stay focused, calm and relaxed. Every day is a work in progress to become the best version of you and I've got plenty of opportunity over the next six weeks to take time out to connect and relax. ✨
I'm also going to enjoy creating new memories with my little family and we're going to go outdoors as often as we can and create as many amazing memories as we possibly can!

I looked into the mirror this morning, stretched my arms above my head, yawning and making a terrible face, I caught a glimpse of my wild locks, armpit hair, and the pimple on my left cheek growing at a steady pace. A smile came up from deep inside me as I looked at my human form. How did I get so lucky? To have all of these beautiful traits? I sent love to myself as I looked at my reflection. You are beautiful, strong, and vibrant in any form you take.❤️Being here and traveling in general has really changed how much I care about how I look, how clean I am, and how I feel about my physical body. It literally doesn't matter what I wear, or what my hair looks like because people are going to stare and I'm going to stick out like a sore thumb. Even if I've worn an outfit four times without washing it, flipped my underwear inside out, and there's a layer of dirt on my feet people still like me. Plus, if I did stink which I surprisingly haven't smelled too off putting during this trip no one can smell me with the array of smells that overwhelm your senses as soon as you walk out the door. This place is a breeding ground for self-love, self-compassion, and self-awareness. #goodmorning#beautiful#loveyourself#poem#write#india#selfawareness#selfcompassion#selflove#morningthoughts#positivitybreedspositivity#happiness#flawsarebeautiful#bodypositive#self#strong#vibrant#glowing#woman#hair#solofemaletraveler#travel#solotraveler

My warning sign that my self-care reserves are running low and need to be replenished is when my patience runs thin, especially apparent when I start swearing like a sailor while driving, something that's particularly ill-advised if you have a three year old passenger with a great memory in the back seat 😳. Today helped replenish me. I got to go to my version of church, which is brunch and listening to live music in the sun with my family; followed by an incredible Mind, Body, Core and Pelvic Floor workshop from @enlightenpt at @thespringsla which included an amazing vulva puppet; followed by some time to cook myself a delicious dinner and read all by myself. What did you do this weekend to treat yourself with tenderness and replenish your reserves?

"i see you" this painting represents self compassion. crawling out of the hole of self doubt, limiting beliefs and suffering...and welcoming myself out with love and empathy for exactly who i am. . i found myself waiting to be self compassionate until i could be perfectly self compassionate! ha! i left this painting in the messy middle because i've learned that that's where true self compassion lives...the messy middle of life. no more waiting for perfection. . starting to paint again is vulnerable for me! being brave as i learn and try new techniques will take me outside my cozy little comfort zone. so, i painted this to remind myself to scoop my own face in my hands and be kind to myself. . . . . #joy #selfcompassion #brenebrown #abbycarrier #abbycarrierart #louisehay #painting #artistsofinstagram #leanin #trysomethingnew #utahartist #love #selflove #mirrorwork #messymiddle #kindness #courage #acrylicpainting #worthyofloveandbelonging
