I got into a fist fight with the shower curtain earlier ✨still seein stars
the poetry is flowing
My eyes are barely open
Pardon any typos
Could it be...
I’ve been lost out in the stars too long
Not knowing the light I was shining
Afraid of dying, afraid of shining?
Afraid of feeling, afraid of flying
Afraid of all I could ever be...
Because I’ve never been all here
I’ve been trapped in trauma trapped in fear, trapped in the past
In memories that have all my life lasted
my pain is real and I will get past it
But the only way out is in
And I can only go through it
Not over or around it
And of all the places I have been,
I am most at home within myself
And it’s here I will remain
Letting go of all guilt and shame
Letting go of all loss and abuse
Letting go of everything that I ever loved that doesn’t serve me.
It is here I stand, and here alone I will.
Within my strength, within my power
I alone, will do. No one else can take my place. I will allow no one to take my power
This is my birthright, this is my space
And bein a female, an ex, a lost daughter, a weirdo, a pain in the ass, a pagan, a sinner, a lost cause... or whatever someone else might think of me... is not possible.
The moment that you've been knocked down ,,
Is the moment that it counts.
And the moment You've lost yourself ,,
Is the moment that you're found.
You can see the world much clearer ,,
When your eyes are filled with tears.
The only way to not be afraid ,,
Is to learn to face your fears.
You're not really afraid of the dark ,,
You're afraid of a lack of light.
And it's a fear of falling ,,
When You say you're Scared of heights ,,
The only reason you know you're sad.
Is because you've been happy before ,,
You may say the world's an ugly place ,,
But you're only seeing the View from your door.!! ❤🌸
Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we are not. You must know that everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses , and it is only when you accept everything you are or aren't - that you will truly succeed. 💕☺
I am slowly learning that even If I react , it won't change anything. It won't make people suddenly love and respect me. It won't magically change their minds.
Sometimes it's better to just let things be. Let people go , dont fight for closure , don't ask for explanation, don't chase answers and don't expect people to understand where you're coming from.
Yes , I am slowly learning that Life is better lived when you don't center it on what's happening 'around you' and center it on what's happening 'inside you' instead. Just work on yourself & your inner peace. Self care is not about being selfish. It's about replenishing and refreshing your spirits in different ways. ❤❤

Take time out of your day to practice self love. Whether it’s trying out some new makeup looks, doings yoga, meditating, dancing in the mirror, take that extra ten minutes to do a face mask, anything that allows you to spend time with yourself.
I’m feeling my absolute best when I’m wearing a bomb a$$ lipstick colour, my hair is up the the “perfect” bun and my scrunchie matches my outfit...that is the boss lady look!! And trust me, there is a ton of acne under that foundation but there is no shame is adding a little sparkle to make yourself feel better💕 #selflove#loveyourself#love#jeffreestarcosmetics#jeffreestar#makeup#makeuplooks#instagram#like#follow
Diva @theekymlee coming to CWC D.C.! RSVP now! 💣🙌🏽
Happy Boss’ Day to my “Boss” Lady who has kept me gainfully employed for over 27 years as a MUA! She is a goal-getter and keeps me inspired daily. Her work ethic is impeccable and her love for her employees is immeasurable. She loves God and constantly seeks him for Wisdom while working in the marketplace. She is a trendsetter and a curator of all things Beauty. Sometimes she’s a little tough but her grind and passion makes people work harder and more efficient👊🏽 Today I think I’ll send her some flowers and take her to lunch. ❤️🤣. #CEOchick#bosslady#GirlCeo#womenempowerment#SelfLove#boss#bossbabes
My latest photography assignment was creating self portraits. Something my plus-size self was not particularly looking forward to. I've always struggled with photos of myself because of my weight, working to hide my chubs and look "skinnier". As if my body isn't worthy of a photo as is.
So this time, instead of fighting against my body, I decided to lean into it, and honor it by embracing what makes me uncomfortable. I decided to treat myself with the same respect, thought, and care I give others, rolls and all. Accepting these pictures was really a lesson in accepting myself- and, as you can see, they turned out beautifully.
Ps. The twist on the assignment was to create self-portraits without capturing your face, which made it technically more challenging but emotionally more comfortable. And I think it played in well with what I was trying to accomplish.

🌸 SELF-COMPASSION + RELATIONSHIPS 🌸⠀
We've been looking at self-compassion for the past few days this week. Now, let's delve a little deeper into understanding what it really means:⠀
🔬THE SCIENCE 🔬⠀
Neff (2003b) has defined self-compassion as consisting of three main components: self-kindness versus self-judgment, common humanity versus isolation, and mindfulness versus over-identification. ⠀
"What helps distinguish self-compassion from mere self-acceptance, moreover, is that compassion entails recognition of the shared human experience. Rather than focusing on one’s separate, individual self, compassion involves recognising that all humans fail and make mistakes, that all life experiences are necessarily flawed and imperfect. Rather than feeling cut off and isolated from others when things go wrong, self-compassion actually facilitates feelings of connection to others in times of failure or difficulty" (Neff, 2003a; Neff, Kirkpatrick, & Rude, 2007). ⠀
💜 So, it's easy to see how developing good self-compassion practices for you as an individual can have a positive and lasting impact on your relationships with your loved ones.⠀
In fact, the results of this particular study showed that:⠀
➕ Self-compassionate individuals displayed more positive relationship behaviour than those who lacked self-compassion⠀
➕ Self-compassion was also a stronger predictor of positive relationship behaviour than trait self-esteem or attachment style.⠀
➕ Partners were able to accurately report on each other’s self-compassion levels, suggesting that it is an observable trait⠀

When you’re pregnant it’s a no brainer - you take SUCH good care of your body. You eat nutritious food, you listen to your hunger cues, you stay hydrated, you rest when needed.
Your body is literally working to grow a human. 🤯
Isn’t that AMAZING? Aren’t our bodies just so incredible?
But... Why don’t we treat our bodies like that all the time?
Our bodies are ALWAYS doing amazing things.
We need to acknowledge -- and RESPECT that
Our hearts beat
Our lungs breathe
Our minds think and imagine
Our muscles push and pull
Our eyes and ears let us see and hear... We are so quick to skip meals, cut calories, cut food groups, deny ourselves what we want to eat or drink 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙣𝙖𝙢𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙬𝙚𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙡𝙤𝙨𝙨.
It’s time we treat our bodies like amazing things they are, 𝘯𝘰 𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘵𝘦𝘳 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘴𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘰𝘯 𝘰𝘧 𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦 𝘸𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘪𝘯.
happy scorpio season. let this be a time of shifting paradigms and choosing to see things differently. also, lots of bs old beliefs will surface .. love yourself unconditionally during this process. if you need to sleep more than usual, do it. if you need to cancel plans, do it. if you need to leave some people on read, do it. if you need someone to hold you while you cry, reach out. there’s support everywhere. meetups.com is one of my fav place to find like minded individuals. but if you jus need some serious time alone, make sure to honor that too. whatever you are needing rn, honor it with your whole heart.
There's a few more questions here to aid you. We hope they serve you.
Where are you stepping up in your life right now?
Where are you backing down in your life right now?
What level of confidence do you have in seeking your dreams, and what would give you even more confidence?

มาฟังคุณโฟมบอกเล่าความประทับใจกันค่ะ... “ลูกกลิ้งน้ำมันหอมระเหย น้อง @chanamonday เอามาให้ลอง บอกว่าช่วยให้ผ่อนคลายและทำให้หลับสบาย 😇 ทางเรามีปัญหาในการนอนอยู่เหมือนกัน คือหลับไม่ลึก คิดว่ากลิ่นอะโรมาของน้ำมันพวกนี้ช่วยได้จริงๆ แต่ถ้าใครไม่มีปัญหาการนอนก็ใช้ได้ เพราะมีหลายสูตรหลายกลิ่นที่ช่วยลดความความเครียด กลิ่นทำให้สมองรีแลกมากขึ้น ที่สำคัญคือใช้แต่ของธรรมชาติ ผลิตที่ปายของไทยนี่แหละ 👏🏻 รู้แบบนี้แล้วยิ่งชอบ น้องๆ avocha พกพาง่ายด้วย ติดกระเป๋าพาไปได้ทุกที่เลย”.

Today is my last day in China and I'll be home again soon. This trip reminded me of the things I am grateful for - the gift of family and friends, the gift of culture and life. I try to be a positive person most of the time, but there are moments when I succumb into darkness and my toxic traits resurface.
I realized that I am not everyone's cup of tea. But life is too short to try pleasing others. I've done that for most of my youth already. It's about time that I step out of my shell and just be myself, regardless of what other people think.
I am not a saint. I am just an ordinary human being who has good days and bad days. When my darkside manifests, I will remember how grateful I am to be in this world where I continue to grow in light and love. 💗
P.S. Sharing some photos from this adventure. ✨

One of the many things that I have learnt over the years: are your ready to have that difficult conversation?
Practicing Mindfulness is the biggest gift of non-judgement, acceptance and respect you can give to yourself AND others 💗 Sian
