This evening I went to a yoga and journaling workshop at yoganowchicago with sprinklesofkaty and it was a an amazing experience. The theme tonight was Making Yourself a Priority//SELF LOVE is the answer. At the end we wrote short love letters to ourselves. This was mine: . . Leah — it is okay to be you. Your devoted, passionate, quirky, willing, and determined self is enough. You are enough. Give yourself grace and take the next step forward. . . Self love and appreciating myself as I am is something that has always been difficult for me. I am learning how to be at peace with myself and foster growth with compassion rather than criticism. Loving and accepting myself doesn’t mean I am a narcissist or self centered. It means respecting myself enough to do what I need to do to take care of myself, to set healthy boundaries with others, and to grow into the person I want to be. . . #selflove #befearlesslyauthentic #yoga #yourvibeattracksyourtribe #authenticity #vulnerability #growth

#Repost michael.furneaux with get_repost ・・・ Be a man who is not afraid to be alone with himself and his thoughts, he embraces fear, loss and sorrow, he accepts that without these things we would not know joy, love and happiness. Be a man who can look at himself in the mirror and make eye contact with himself, he looks at the aging face and sees the scars and wrinkles, he smiles knowing what lies beneath and inside is what really matters, for he knows that is where love lies, within. Be a man who is not afraid to have a broken heart, he nurtures a broken heart with love and kindness and when the heart is healed he embraces love again and invites love into is heart once again, for he knows love is the essence of life. Be a man who is not afraid of a strong woman who is deeper than he could ever be, he embraces that strength and love, for he knows that it is that strength that will help carry him through difficult times. Be a man who is full of love, empathy and kindness, he comes from a space of love always, he shines these traits to all around him every day, he will not be walked on, but he will show his strength kindly always. Be a man who can admit his mistakes and laugh at them once the lesson is learnt, for he knows that is how we grow. Be a man who is at peace with himself, he takes time each day to gather his thoughts and strives to do better tomorrow. Be a man who knows how to fill his love tank to overflowing, so he can use the excess of love to help fill others love tanks when they need it. Be a man who respects himself and others the same. Be a man of love, love is the way. I wrote this due to inspiration from a beautiful post by nikki_loveandlight ————————————————- Spoken like a real man!

You know that expression? Theres an elephant in the room? I feel like there is actually a whole lot of elephants in a whole lot of rooms...and one of those elephants is fear. Its a completely normal, human experience to feel fear. Stand at the edge of a 100 foot cliff and most of us will feel it. Tell us someone we love is dying and all of us will feel it. My point is that in so many ways fear creeps into our lives. Perhaps the most common fear whether it is spoken or left unsaid is the fear of coming to the end of life realizing there was no purpose to yours. If Im being honest that is my biggest fear. I wake up in the middle of the night with a sinking feeling in my heart and a voice that says "you haven't done enough -you haven't been enough". It can be crippling. And a lot of us run to empty things hoping to fill our lives with meaning only to find ourselves feeling more empty, I know I have. But there's this saying I think is true and trustworthy that goes "Perfect Love, casts out all fear". I used to have troubles with public speaking, in fact in North America its considered in the top three biggest fears for people. It requires a certain level of vulnerability that to some is really daunting. Know what helped me speak? Love. I learned how to love the people I was speaking to. Know what it will take to live a life of purpose? Love. Lets learn how to live lives with meaning.

Everybody has experienced some kind of pain in their life everybody has a story. Some wounds cut deeper than others, take longer to heal, and require more vigorous soul searching to recover from. Here is what I've found does not work: 1. Ignoring it. Hoping it will just get easier on it's own. 2. Masking it. Attempting to use food, alcohol, shopping, or co-dependant relationships to cover it up. 3. Keeping it to yourself. Building your own prison with walls that you think will keep you safe. And so if these things don't work presumably the opposite does: 1. Allow it. Identify the pain in whatever shape you find it. Perhaps its grief, shame, guilt, unworthiness - name it and invite it in. 2. Go into it. Feel deeply into the sensations that arise with that pain so that you can move it through and out of the body. 3. Be vulnerable. Share your story with friends. Your openness gives others permission to share too, and turns isolation into connection. Through my yoga practice I've made huge strides in 1&2. The 3rd is new territory that I have just begun to break ground. Healing is an evolution, and may never be complete. But I know that the more work I do the more inner peace I find. ❤ . . . . . #yoga #innerpeace #vulnerability #heal

There is nothing more powerful or radical or stunningly beautiful than a woman who chooses to rebuild her life. Day after day, hour after hour. No matter how many pieces are hers to sweep up, or how many mistakes she must now spin into gold. -Cara Alwill Leyba 📷: mirror_see . . . . . #bendoregon #inbend #bend #snow #mirrorsee #selflove #growth #watchmegrow #brokenisbeautiful #vulnerability #allineedisme #photography #boudoir #modeling #centraloregon #pisces #infj

“Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” 🖤 #BreneBrown || Spirituality isn't all about being positive, it's about being authentic which includes both positive and negative. Embrace all that you are. 🙏🏽 #bemorehuman #spirituality #staywoke #authenticity #shadowwork #vulnerability

lmcoffman: Some of you might be following my #biggirllittlebucket series on my story, but here’s a little post about it. - I made that hashtag as a half joke about some of the struggles of village life in South Africa (and in most Peace Corps countries). The loss of modern day conveniences can be hard as you transition into life as a PCV. But they become routine. You figure out what works for you and the simple things that bring you joy. For example, I like to walk around my ultimate studio (I cook, eat, sleep, pee, and bathe all in the same room) as I take my bucket bath and drink wine while listening to podcasts. - This week has been rough. I officially started teaching and it made me feel so inadequate. The inadequacy mixed with the other emotional stresses of loneliness and distance got to me and, for the first time since being South Africa, I wanted to go home. End service and be in my bed eating Chick-fil-a. No amount of comfort food, binge watching the Office, or face masks seemed to ease my longing for familiarity and convenience. I remember I listened to the poshcorps podcast before leaving for service and a quote that stuck with me was "Peace Corps breaks you down until you have to reinvent yourself in a new culture. So then it becomes a part of you." - Maybe, this is my break down. Maybe, there were aspects of myself that I needed to strip down to nothing and recreate.

Real freedom has nothing to do with being able to do whatever you want whenever you want. It is in direct proportion to how much love you have cultivated within & how often you choose the most loving words, actions, & thoughts. When nothing can deter you from being loving towards another, you’ll know that are free. It’s not going to be easy, in fact it will require getting completely real with yourself & surrendering your ego-mind to love, faith/knowingness, gratitude, forgiveness & compassion.. when no one and no thing can drag you back into the negativity & dysfunction of the world— your inherent confidence & power will begin to shine through. The soul that knows it’s own power always is the most loving because it is threatened by no one & no thing—— that is what freedom truly means. #spiritualawakening #spirituality #selflove #freedom #happiness #liberation #awakening #awake #selfhelp #personaldevelopment #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #consciousness #love #gratitude #authentic #vulnerability #vulnerabilityisstrength #5d #fifthdimension #angelacademy #galacticfederationoflight #starseed #ascension #ascendedmasters
