Yesterday I wasn't feeling too great about my physical self and I didn't actually know if I wanted to be in front of the camera. I haven't been feeling great about my body so my instinct is simply to hide more than anything. I reminded myself that self-acceptance requires action and, as counter-intuitive as it seems, it means putting yourself into situations that make you address those parts of yourself that create discomfort. Even though I was tired and self-doubtful, I showed up to shoot with @thecreativegraham at the @yellow_chair_gram studios. Ofcourse it helped that him and @zvi_m (who knew I was struggling with self-image) have such loving energy and in doing this shoot I began to actually feel love for my body again. I think in some way this does address point 2) about self-validation and love: seeing the goodness in yourself. When I made that point, it was about all aspects of you, not just physical so I still want to address ways on how I started recognizing the goodness in myself (inside and out). Yesterday was just one way of doing it on a mostly physical scale. ...But while writing this I'm beginning to realize there was a lot of goodness on an emotional scale: I was brave and courageous in addressing my discomfort, I was happy and loving which contributed to the energy around me, and I love that my innately goofy nature brought laughter. All of those things I see as goodness in me and, to be honest, if I had not been writing this out, I might not have seen that. This moment is another great example of how you see the goodness in yourself: take a deeper look at your days and examine ways you brought light and positivity into the world, as minor as it may seem. I encourage you to write it down because when you do that you're focusing both your mind and body on seeing the beauty in you AND you have something to refer back to when you do doubt yourself in the future and need a reminder.

🌱💪💪These little weeds are awesome. They are tough and simply need to be left alone to come back and bring more little friends allong. They come in pink and yellow colors and are pretty impressive in large numbers. 🌷🌷🌷 🙅I've seen people try to get rid of them and they just come back as if nothing happened 😂. I've seen people try to spread them but if it's not in their terms, they just won't budge. 💅 🤷Such a simple thing but these tough little ladies capture me so...🌠

Resilience & Commitment. . Resilience is the ability to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions. . Commitment is the state of being dedicated to a cause or activity. . Commitment is like the glue that holds you together when times get hard when you wanna give up When you don’t see the fruits of your labor When you don’t see the light anywhere near When you reach the end of your rope If your commitment is strong and you keep swimming upstream withstanding all the pressure and difficulties and hardships and setbacks and failure..... I promise you will make it. You will have the victory. . Keep going. Keep pressing through. 💪🏻 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #fitnessmotivation #fitspo #keepgoing #pushthru #yougotthis #inspired #truth #resilience #committed #fitfam #fitnessaddict #fitmom #mindset #fitnesscoach #personaltrainer

•• Resilience Minutes ago I've found this tiny creature. It was in my bathtub with the shell broken. Who knows how did it get there... Gently I took him, trying not to harm more the shell and brought him to the garden. In my way to the lawn he started crawling upon my finger. Then he stopped and pointed his little head towards my eyes. It was like he was purposefuly staring at me, and I felt his gratitude. Such a touching moment! Just a split second... But it was an intense and meaningful connection with that tiny wounded creature. This encounter taught me more than thousand books and hundred teachers. He carried a deep message for me... I know what the message is, though I save it for myself. We can find the answers in the communion with our Divine Mother and in every creature, even the smallest ones can carry a deep teaching and meaning, when our hearts are open to listen Mitákuye oyás'in, We are all One, we are nature and every creature is sacred!!! . 📷 @_cosmicalchemist_.
