I don't care. Do you? #authenticselfjourney

I’ve been a little quiet this week because I’ve been busy with work, private practice, personal life and taking care of me ensuring that I don’t get a full blown migraine. I’m slowly learning new signs that I need to rest because when I think I’ve mastered self care a migraine hits to remind me I still have more work to do 😂🙈.
.
However today I wanted to share this with you all that I saved from @bossladiesmindset a while ago. I loved it when I saw it but it hasn’t felt right to post. Then today I wake up really happy in my own skin and who I’ve become and still yet to become. It’s tough to be your self in a world full of distractions and the basic human need to fit in and belong. Like this is a real thing, we are pack animals and need to belong.
.
When you take the step into your own internal journey and look for happiness internally instead of externally this feeling of knowing and accepting your self grows and grows.
.
I have my own personal dramatherapist to thank for this as she helps guide me in becoming more and more my true self each session.
.
Investing in your self really is money well spent ☺️💖☺️

Adjusting my crown 👑 .

My Authentic Self Expression 💫 .
.
Often times self-doubt creeps in and you’re convinced you’re not good enough to have what you want. .
.
Learn how to turn down that critic inside your head and tune in and vibrate higher than those voices. Your power, strength and wisdom is already within you! You just have to learn to tap into your inner wisdom and allow your higher self to guide. Your gifts will help support your vision. You just have to trust and know this! .

— Higher self speaks — You must listen .

Frenchy and I say ‘be you do you for you’. It’s Sunday so take some time for your self to reset ready for the week ahead. There are so many expectations to do stuff or get stuff done. How about making being gentle with your self the top of your to do list today.
.
How will you put your self at the top today? I’m going to have a big soak in the bubble bath ☺️☺️☺️.
.
Frenchy knows all about being her self...look at that face 😂😂😂.
.
When we feel like we can’t be bothered doing something it’s very easy to beat our selves up and judge ourselves. Instead listen to your self and most importantly listen to your body. It has a very good way of telling us what we need especially when we are caught up in the brain 🧠👙💖.

Turbulence in your being is a sign of growth.
Being emotional, chaotic and not knowing what you want or being extremely unsatisfied is a sign of growth.
You are awakening. You are growing, changing, evolving.
It's ok.

What a beautiful experience getting so close to a mother and her baby was. It was truly magical seeing them and how she protected the lamb. How anyone could eat that I honestly don’t know it makes me sad even typing or thinking about it 😥.
.
Seeing lambs always makes me smile but this one was a big lamb and whilst lambs usually remind me of change and new beginnings. This one reminded me that yes change can be f£*$king hard (I’m not that authentic to say the F word on insta just yet 😂😂) but how much do we grow through transitional times. They can be scary just like the passer by taking a photo may have been to this lamb but with its mother to protect him or her they were ok and he or she grows each day.
.
We are exactly the same in so many ways actually. So through hard times connect with those around you and lean on them when needed ❤️❤️❤️.
.
I’ve just realised how Dramatherapeutic this post is without even realising. During sessions we may use animals or characters as a way of exploring our stories and experiences. Creating a safe distance so the individual doesn’t have to directly talk about them self until they are ready to do so 🎭🎭🎭

Today has mostly involved my bed, a super long soak in the bath with the blinds closed and rose quartz. Trying to be gentle on my self as I feel frustrated that a migraine has hit meaning all plans have come to a holt and I’ve had to take a day off work (therapist guilt) not forgetting how much pain I’ve been in 🤕🤕😥.
.
I can finally see my screen and the battle inside me that says take self care and don’t show up on insta today vs just do a little post and share how hard it is to be kind with your self.
.
As much self care that we take physical and mental illness still happens. Be gentle and kind when your mind and body need it most.
.
Maybe I’m so passionate about self-care because I know I’m my own worst enemy. Who else is their biggest critic? It’s so sad that we are so hard on ourselves. I am actively trying to change this into being my own biggest carer. It takes self-awareness and practice.
.
If we can’t care for ourselves then who can? 💗💗💗

A best friend brings the best out in you and as a dramatherapist who works with children and young people I’m passionate about promoting positive relationships with your self and others. The therapeutic relationship is the most important part of my work as a therapist 👭.
.
Back to this beauty right here though. Sometimes we don’t agree and might give each other the silent treatment but we are always able to talk it out and air what bothered us. She is my biggest supporter and literally my life coach, manager, inspirer and fashion adviser 😂😂😂.
.
Recently I’ve become aware of so many friends that bring positive energy into my life in lots of different ways and I’m so grateful for every single one of you. .
In any relationship there must be balance. Sometimes one needs you more but in a healthy relationship the favour is always unconditionally returned.
.
A friendship/ relationship enables you to express your voice not suppress your voice. Always remember that and take your microphone 🎤🎤🎤.
.
Ps her freckles (angel kisses) poo all over mine 😂😂 #mybestfriendsfrecklesarebetterthanyours #authenticselfmonth

💪🏻💪🏻Inner strength 💪🏻💪🏻.
.
Have you ever felt like you’ve finally built an inner strength that cannot be squished then to find your self crushed and feeling weak?
.
In honour of #authenticselfmonth I can hold my hands up and say yes I have, in fact I’m on a journey right now to keep developing that inner strength.
.
At times it may feel like that part of you has gone and it’s so hard to find her again but let me assure you she isn’t too far away. You just have to be gentle and patient with the more vulnerable side of your self. Allowing your self to be vulnerable is actually mighty strong. I think sometimes we confuse outer strength, looking strong and holding everything together on the outside with true inner strength. During times of vulnerability that inner strength finds her way back to you.
.
For example I went hiking on Sunday and as I stepped on the broken rocks beneath my feet and climbed feeling the burn in my body my inner strength grew and grew. As I reached the top and took it all in I met with that stronger part of my self and looked her straight in the eyes and smiled.
.
I know that I’ve felt her before so when times get rocky I know she is only around the corner I just have to trust the process 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

“Finding your passion isn’t just about careers and money. It’s about finding your authentic self. The one you've buried beneath other people's needs.” - Kristin Hannah
It took me a long time to realize this. 13 years to be exact. 13 years of working in a fast paced environment, whether it was the hospital or the dialysis center, I often had to put my own needs aside to meet the demands of the job.
Sometimes it was just a matter of skipping lunch or canceling plans to stay late and handle a crisis. But then it quickly became bringing work home with me, taking calls while on PTO, calling the sitter to keep my son longer than planned, and cancelling scheduled vacation days to come in to work. The day I think I finally decided I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life in healthcare was when a patient backhanded me in the face. There were many days that I felt like I had reached the final straw, but I think that one stands out in my mind the most.
I wasn’t a mom yet at that time and I had no idea just how much I would want to be home with my kids one day until I had my son and had to go back to work. Back to the stress, back to being glued to my computer and phone at work and at home, back to the unpredictability of managing a dialysis unit. I wasn’t happy... I felt that I was missing out on so much those first 2 years of his life.
I started sharing my postpartum transformation with other moms and invited them to join me and let me help them find their best self again. I was passionate about the fitness and nutrition programs I was following and I wanted to help Other women get the same results and feel as good as I did.
4 years later and I’m Home full time now. I
Have a job that I can clock in and out of when it’s convenient for me and my family. Most importantly I’m helping other women feel good about themselves again and truly take care of themselves first! To think that something that I enjoy so much earned my husband and I an all Expense vacay to Mexico a month and a half ago still Blows me away!
If it wasn’t all about the paycheck, where would you be today? What career would have you finding your authentic self?

Vulnerability is the birthplace of all the good emotions..creativity, joy, hope, love, peace!! ~Brene Brown (ism)
The more we allow others to see us the freer we will become....
I’ve spent allot of my life in hiding ..afraid of true connection not even aware that in my protected state, I was also robbing myself of experiencing true joy and allowing others to experience the beauty within.
Life can deal ya some dirty hands and in those places we can acquire wounds that we use as shields - those shields become our friends and we feel safe from experience pain again. Unfortunately, those shields aren’t our friends they are our foes! The goal is to recognize our foes and not allow them to take away our true joy!
Have I mastered vulnerability ...nope..are some days more difficult than others ...yes ...but the goal is to stay on the journey! 😘
The greatest gift we can give ourselves and others is our authentic selfs! #truebeauty #authenticselfjourney #freedom #vulnerabilityisstrength

I may not tan quickly but I sure as hell get freckles ☺️☀️☺️.
.
Today I’ve made an effort by putting real clothes on and tassel earrings appose to yoga pants and trainers 😂😂.
.
Tbh I’m most comfortable in my yoga pants like comfortable physically and emotionally but today I felt like pushing the boat out and making my self feel nice. Who cares if I’m only going to the vets I’m no longer saving the nice earrings for a special occasion.
.
Today I feel like being a tassel queen and that’s just what I’ll be 👑👑👑. I’m a dramatist dressing up is my forte right? 💁🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️.
.
Who else saves certain pieces of clothing for a ‘special occasion’ and finds them selves living in the same boring old clothes everyday?? 👗👗👗 #authenticselfmonth #anotherdayanotherselfie

Authentic post 1...
.
So I promised that if I had a shitty day I’d share with you all. This isn’t being a negative Nigel this is just being a little real in a social media world full of filters ☺️.
.
So tonight I planned on going to yoga and my plan didn’t go how I intended it to. Instead I got stuck in traffic, tried to take a short cut and then another short cut but I ended up getting stuck in even more traffic. I battled with my self to keep going and be late or turn around...reality is I turned around came home and now have a curry on order 😂.
.
As I write this it really doesn’t seem in anyway bad at all but I just felt like it shows how we can beat ourselves up when plans don’t go to plan. Questioning what is the right thing to do. When in actual fact there isn’t any right way at all, the traffic taught me that. As I sat in even more traffic to get home. An hour long waisted journey or was it?
.
Self-care isn’t always getting to the yoga class and meditating it’s accepting what is and letting it be. I didn’t get there but tomorrow I might. Things may not have gone to plan today but that’s ok... let it be, tomorrow is a new day so never let today stop you 👌🏻❤️ #authenticselfmonth

Taking time to reflect on where you have been and where you want to go is powerful. Sometime we don’t give ourselves the credit we deserve for all we have overcame and achieved. We wear the face of the warrior, take on the world each day, it’s healthy to tap into our gentle side. Stop, Breath, Reflect💕

Love this meme that @independentlywoman shared. Why? Because I live by motto that your uniqueness is your magic. The truth is we all have amazing gifts to offer this world. They are right there within us waiting to come out. Sometimes, we block them with the harsh thoughts that occupy our mind or by comparing ourselves with others.

It’s your true self that will create the most incredible things so don’t rob the world of that potential it by compromising your authenticity. #beyourselfeveryoneelseistaken

This is Molly! She's a fellow Minnesotan that we met with here in Bali. It's truly amazing the people you meet when you set out around the world. You never know who's out there until you, yourself, are out there too! Thanks Molly for meeting with us, good luck in Tibet and Happy Birthday!

One of the best things about travel is all of the people you happen to meet along the way. These are two awesome entrepreneurs Estela Kun @freedomexperienceonline and Casey Fenton @c.fent living freedom-based lifestyles on their own terms. Casey founded Couch Surfing in 2004, years before even Facebook was on the scene. Through that project, he changed the landscape of traveling forever. Estela founded the Freedom Experience and Freedom X Fest, a project dedicated to spreading awareness of the freedom based lifestyle and bringing together and empowering those willing to go beyond the norm.

We are so close to opening the doors to Vybrant Life so more "work hard, play hard" types can experience new perspectives through incredible adventure travel trips in some of the most exciting places in the world. Comment below with "Bali 2018" and we'll get you the details of our next adventure as soon as it's released. Tag a friend that might want to have a mind blowing experience in Bali too!!!

This stands so true for me.❤️🙏🏾❤️ The pain l went through was nothing l would ever wish upon anybody but it was pain l had to go through to get to the other side.
It was my Hero’s Journey 🙏🏾 I became the Hero of my Journey because l won the fight against the horrible Dragons. The fight was so painfully long but l made it. These Dragons made me realise that the strength l had inside of me was the strongest of any killer Dragon out there. My courage to go on was because of my inner strength but at the time, l didn’t think l was going to make it.
When l saw that he’d taken his own life, my world stood still and those few seconds felt like an eternity.
It was so surreal, yet like something was ripping my soul out.
My screams for him to come back were so loud, yet so far away. He couldn’t hear me because he was gone.

The pain that followed was unbearable and l just didn’t want to wake up. I just wanted to sleep forever and never face another day.

Months followed with depression, trauma, anxiety...l was so scared and really really lost.

Finally the days got easier and the healing happened.

It’s been almost 5 years since that day. 🙏🏾 I thank God every day for giving me this wonderful and blessed life. I’ve worked really really hard to get to where l am today.

I am grateful for all the horrid pain because without that pain l would never have got to the other side.
I would never had found my strength.

I had to slay the dragons and then finally realised that l always had it in me but l had to fight the fight to win.

I am my Hero 🙏🏾 Written by Connie Mathis ❤️#herosjourney #healing #emotions #depression #transformation #strength #courage #warrior #loveyourself #love #breakthrough #womenempowerment #truth #authenticselfjourney #innerpeace💫

The root cause of all suffering is the resistance to suffering.

The resistance to the ups and downs is causing you trouble. Not the ups and downs itself.
You not wanting to take the ride and to go on the journey is the problem.
You still holding on to the idea that suffering is making you a less worthy human being is causing you pain.
See, everyone around you suffers from time to time. There is nothing wrong with that.
As long as you resist the fact, as long as you hold on to the concept of suffering and that suffering is bad, you will experience huge levels of suffering.
See, pain is as it is. When you add resistance to the pain on top, it gets worse.
Until you learn to ride the waves you will always experience the waves as hard, bad and evil.
