Decisions. I used to hate how i had the most difficult time making any decisions. But I've learned that commitment is what allowed me to create my own life...instead of drifting through life just dealing with circumstances. 💭 Every day i choose to use my power and capacity to commit. Commit to people, myself, goals, projects, etc. Hard choices are extra special because I'm able to use that power to look at the opportunities to BUILD, CREATE, and become the distinctive individual that i am. 💁🏻‍♀️ Agony and anxiety in hard choices are from the lack of information. The unknown. So. Yeah. Sometimes I'm indecisive. 🗣🗣🗣 Ive said all this to say that i changed my top 3 times then put on a Simpsons t-shirt before a photo shoot 🤣 A behind the scenes shot at the Juut Real People Campaign.

💥NEW BLOG💥 LINK IN BIO. As we come to the 'end' of mental health awareness week. I have written a new blog about body image, which is the focus for this year. I actually felt quite uncomfortable writing about bodies but this only touches on a small part of low self-image but I hope it's helpful to some of you. I'd love to write about things you're all interested in, so please let me know what you would like me to write about... I might even be welcoming some guests to write later in the summer! 💜 - #mentahealthawareness#bodyimage#antibullying#blog#newpost#dontcompareyourselftoothers#instagram#BeKindtoyourself#BeBodyKind#beyou#spreadingkindness

All I learned about happiness so far made me realize this: Happiness is a skill.
All I learned about happiness so far made me realize this: Happiness is a skill. ✨ You’re probably wondering what I mean by that, so let me explain my perspective. ✨ We don’t know how to be truly and lastingly happy – just like we don’t know how to tie our shoes, speak a foreign language and drive a car. We don’t know how to do all these things if we never learn how to. ✨ But we can learn how to do almost everything from playing basketball to painting and more. And just like that, we can learn how to be happy? ✨ How do we do that? The same way we learn everything else. ✨ First, we need to learn a few basic things about happiness. We begin to learn the science of happiness to understand how much we can control, what matters and what doesn’t. (I’ll also share some basic facts about happiness on this account) ✨ Secondly, we need to practice and improve. We apply what we learned and see what works best for us. We adjust, change and create new habits that help us achieve mastery. ✨ Yes, it’s a process that takes some time, effort and self-awareness. But I think it’s the only way to create the type of happiness that is lasting, authentic and meaningful. ✨ Do you want to develop the skill of happiness? ✨ . . . #happybyscience#happy#happiness#scienceofhappiness#positive#positivepsychology#inspiration#lifehacks#happinessisaskill#lifelessons#lifequotes#quotestoliveby#inspiration#mentalhealth#mentahealthawareness

Hello everyone, and happy #monologuethursday! This week is the #mentahealthaware
Hello everyone, and happy #monologuethursday! This week is the #mentahealthawarenessweek2019, and the monologue of today, from the heartbreaking "Like dreaming, Backwards" by Kellie Powell, is dedicated to all of us out there coping with it, whether we are directly affected by mental health issues or we are trying to deal with a beloved one suffering from them. Both sides share the feeling of being helpless, guilty, not worthy. Not good enough because these illnesses are still stigmatized as signs of weakness, so if are suffering from them you are just a "sissy" who "doesn't know what the real problems in life are", and not good enough because if you didn't see it happening to someone you love, if you couldn't prevent it, if you couldn't help them, it means you are just not good enough as a partner, a parent, a friend. These things are nuclear bombs, that after destroying the target and everything around it for miles and miles away, plant a seed of destruction that eats up from the inside those who survived with feelings of guilt and remorse. Please take care of yourself and let those around you help you, because that hole you feel inside can eat you up, but can also be filled with flowers and light. Love you all, #agirlfromtheislandinnewyork#depression#selfcare#suicideprevention#selfacceptance#love#dignity#actressinnewyork#acting#chiaradecaroli#fearlesswomen#betruetoyourself#thisisme#nohate#blessedbe#females#italianamerican#loveyourself#fallouts#youarebeautiful#mentahealthawareness#castingdirectors#talent#youareworthit#fearlesswomen#closeup#practicemakesperfect@iawomenproject#kelliepowell@bestwomeninfilm@womeninfilm@likedreamingbackwards@actorsapply#likedreamingbackwards

Check on your friends and family. Make sure they a
MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK Check on your friends and family. Make sure they are okay. Be there for them and look after your people. Put the kettle on for them, go for a walk with them, offer a shoulder and ear to them. Do what you need to do and if it means going above and beyond sometimes then do it. But most importantly, most important of all. Check yourself. Ask yourself... AM I OKAY? Do your batteries feel depleted? Are you drained and exhausted permanently? Is everything getting too much? Do you put your “I’m okay” face on and it’s the hardest thing to do? Take the time to look after yourself. Would you take time off for the Flu? For being physically unwell... But mental Ill-health we don’t consider important enough to take time off for. Speaking from my own personal experience. Dealing with an incredible amount of loss and hurdles being thrown in my path that threatened to take some of those closest. Trying to keep ongoing with a degree that is so mentally and physically demanding. I cracked. And I broke. Cried because I couldn’t boil eggs properly. Cried myself to sleep. Cried when I woke up. Cried because I couldn’t string a sentence together to construct a decent piece of work. Could not think straight. Could not feel. I became numb, mentally, emotionally, physically! Every part of me. And kept putting my game face on. And soo many people have thought, well you seemed fine. You haven’t asked for help. You keep smiling. Because sometimes there was no other option that to keep smiling and to keep going so I didn’t give up. “YOURE SEEING A COUNCILLOR? WHAT FOR?” I’ve been to councillor to help mental well being. The same as I go to see a GP for my physical Ill-health! END THE STIGMA!!!! It is okay, to not be okay!!! It is okay to ask for help!!! It is perfectly okay to need time to look after yourself!!! It is perfectly fine to think about you!!! #mentahealthawareness#mentalhealth#endthestigma#itsokaytoaskforhelp#itsokaytonotbeokay#raisingawareness

Let’s talk ‘influencers’ and #fitspo/fitness accounts
.
I understand that follow
Let’s talk ‘influencers’ and #fitspo/fitness accounts . I understand that following these people may seem like a great idea. They post the odd circuit workout or recipe you can copy. They have the defined, tanned body you aspire to have. Everything about their life seems like it’s sunshine and rainbows ☀️🌈 . They are #goals . Their posts will be there when you need that little bit of inspiration or motivation to give you that boost. However, they will also be there on those days where you are bloated, or the days that you just HATE everything you see in the mirror . If you can’t scroll through Instagram without feeling bad about yourself than I suggest that you reconsider who you should be following . Comparing yourself to these accounts and subsequently feeling self-conscious is not going to help you achieve anything. You won’t make progress, you won’t become healthier and you certainly won’t have any ☀️🌈 . If you are feeling more negativity than positivity from following them, it’s totally counterproductive and not remotely worth it . The solution? Unfollow them all . Their accounts won’t go away I’m not saying you can’t look at their content ever again. Just take control of when you see it . Live your life, not theirs 🌟 . #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek

Life structure to the rescue of the emotional self “How to unlock tremendous amo
Life structure to the rescue of the emotional self “How to unlock tremendous amount of emotional energy by giving yourself the right context and structure” A good foundation is what makes anything last. In regard to our emotional health then, what could be a good foundation on which to build a fruitful and satisfying emotional life? Our emotional health also depends on the environment we are living in, in order to truly thrive. Emotional stress does not always manifest the same way as physical stress, as the typical fight or flight response. It can be much more subtle. So much that we can live with degrees of emotional stress without even noticing it anymore, being used to live with it that it has now become a part of us. Any kind of emotional stress is a sign that you’re not having the right context to feel safe and fulfilled and that you might be lacking what you need to thrive emotionally. In order to unlock the HUGE amount of energy that is unknowingly wasted towards being emotionally unwell, we need to understand a few thing. The emotional part of our brain thrives when we are seen, acknowledged, validated and appreciated. Are you surrounded with people and friends that are able to see you as you are in the fullest of your potential? This aspect of ourselves thrives in a context of SAFETY. Do you have that one buddy, lover or life partner with whom every feeling and emotion is okay and accepted for you to experience at any moment? Our emotional self loves when it’s given “white space”, time off, idle time. Do you make sure to regularly allot time in your schedule to unwind, play and goof around without any agenda? The practice of radical self-acceptance provides the proper environment for our emotional self to feel ‘accepted’, welcomed, appreciated and loved. Is your inner critic tamed down so it doesn’t come in the way of you opening up emotionally to the world? Like if you’re ready to welcome back all of your life-enhancing energy that has been evading you simply because you were lacking the right context and structure. #Emotion#emotions#emotional#emotionalintelligence#mentahealthawareness#mentalhealth#selfcare#selflove

Bulan ini banyak sekali yang sudah berani speak up tentang Mental Health mereka
Bulan ini banyak sekali yang sudah berani speak up tentang Mental Health mereka 💕 Dan banyak sekali respon positifnya. _ Disini aku mau share, tentang anxiety yang aku idap sejak aku muda sekali 😊 Anxiety yang aku alami adalah acceptance dari orang lain. Dulu, aku merasa aku harus sempurna supaya diterima sama orang. Dari fisik sampai non-fisik, seperti nilai mata pelajaran harus bagus, dll. Kalo ada yang menjauhi aku, aku merasa gagal, bener2 merasa aku adalah orang yang paling buruk. Dan gak banyak orang tau, bahwa aku mengalami depresi yang berkepanjangan. Depresiku sampai nangis dikamar, ngurung diri di kamar, yang terburuk adalah menjadi orang yang munafik (its the truth). Tentu saja, ada banyak hal yang membuatku seperti ini 😊 Ditambah, setelah melahirkan aku (tidak mau mengakui) depresi. Bukan aku tidak mau menerima kehadiran si kecil, tapi aku lebih merasa “apakah aku udah baik untuk menjadi seorang Ibu ?”. Tidur gelisah, cemas ini itu, menjauhi teman2ku, makin merasa gak percaya diri 😊 _ Long short story, akhirnya aku bisa survived dari depresi itu dan menemukan solusi sendiri. Yaitu, aku membaca tubuhku sendiri, membaca isi kepalaku sendiri. Yang aku butuhkan adalah partner yang bisa mendengarkan aku, yaitu Suamiku sendiri ❤️ Aku mengeluhkan semua, dan dia mendengarkan. Dan dia mendorong aku untuk berkarya, dan ketemu temen2ku lagi. _ Dan, ternyata berkarya adalah salah satu terapi aku yang ajaib, supaya aku tidak mengalami depresi yg berkepanjangan. Aku ketemu sahabat2ku dan tertawa. Dan tertawa juga, terapi buatku. _ Banyak client2ku yang menyukai karyaku, tanpa aku minta bayaran; hanya karena aku menikmati menggambar dan bermain dengan warna 😊❤️ _ Dan terakhir, aku bicara ke Tuhanku. Aku ceritakan semua, dan aku ga minta banyak dari Tuhanku, aku cuma mau diberikan kesehatan mental aku karena ingin menyelamatkan jiwa anakku yang sedang tumbuh dan aku janji gak akan melewati masa emas anakku & tentu saja untuk keutuhan keluarga kecilku ini 💕❤️ _ So here it is, I am happy mom and wife. And also, I am happy illustrator ❤️ Much love, Nhena _ #madebynhena#mentahealthawareness

Look after your mental health using exercise.. 🏃‍♀️ Yoga is one of the top exercises to look after your Mental Health! Yoga with Kirsty makes sure to provide you with the right amount of exercise during each class to give you a good workout! Helping to heat the body to aid in blood circulation and help keep our immune system healthy 🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️ Evidence shows that regular exercise has positive effects on our Mental Health! Many of us believe the mind and body are separate however, whatever we do with the body has a huge effect on the mind. Yoga teaches us how to unite the two! 🧐🧠 All Asana poses were designed to benefit the body and we find that most of these poses also aid in lowering depression, combating anxiety, aiding in a good nights sleep, providing confidence in the self and many many more benefits... 🧘‍♀️🙏😌 If you haven’t already, have an open mind and attend a yoga class to see how these benefits can help you! 🤗 #exercise#mentalhealth#healthymind#healthybody#mentahealthawareness#yoga#yogahertford#hertfordyoga#yogaware#yogahertfordshire#loveyourself#unite#sweat#asanas

.
This
It’s #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek and the theme for this year is body image . This is a topic that is very close to me, not only through my work but also within myself. I’ve always been very body conscious. I was an overweight kid and a curvy teen. Like most, school was a self conscious struggle. Getting into the gym during uni not only caused physical changes but I became so much more confident. My love for training grew and I competed in my first bikini competition👙 . Don’t get me wrong, I (in a way 🤪) loved the process of comp prep. BUT during those 6 months, my happiness solely came from a drop in the scales and seeing my body getting leaner. I was getting so many compliments about my body and I felt great . My happiness was attached to my physical appearance. So when my teeny tiny body went away after the show, so did my happiness . The compliments disappeared and I was no longer #bodygoals . For months I dreaded social occasions because all my ‘normal’ clothes didn’t fit me the same. I was anxious about seeing people I hadn’t seen in ages in case they judged my new found body fat. I was terrified that people would think I’d ‘let myself go’ . I didn’t want to talk or open up about it. I’ve always been known as the one who ‘has their shit together’ so I didn’t want to seem weak or for people to think less of me . I took months to realise that my self worth and who I am as a person has NOTHING to do with my body fat %. My friends and family don’t love me for how I look or how well defined my muscles are . It’s a huge cliche but happiness REALLY does come from within. Stop placing it on something as temporary as a physique (don’t expect your body to look the same in 30 years time) . There is nothing wrong with wanting to change your body but make sure you are doing it for the right reasons. Stop thinking happiness will come at size ‘X’ or when you reach ‘Y’kg. You deserve to love yourself, feel beautiful & be happy no matter your size . Body image issues occur in all ages, sizes and genders - so NEVER think that you are alone or ‘stupid’ for feeling the way you do. If you struggle with this TALK 🗣 nothing good ever comes from keeping things bottled up❤️

In my book #DaphneandtheSmileyShells Daphne feels alone and afraid at the beginning of the story. Everything seems dark and she can't seem to get anything right. I'm sure we've al been there 💖💖💖 Luckily she chooses to talk to her Grandad who cheers her up and gives her some tools to feel better about herself and life in general. In #mentalhealthawarenessmonth how many of us could do with turning to a supportive friend or professional to put us back on track in the short or long term? Whatever you're feeling, you are sooo not the only one, please believe this. Even though everyone else appears confident and happy we cannot tell what is going on inside. Even those you see as leaders now will have had to go through some "stuff" in order to become as strong as they are now. So please, turn to a supportive friend or find a professional you can turn to discreetly if you wish. It could change your life for the better. 😊 You are not alone.

Happy Mother’s Day to the mamas with kiddos - and to the mamas with angel kiddos. . Blessings to those without mamas, to those with strained relationships to their mamas and especially to those longing to be mamas. . Happy Mother’s Day and so much respect to those that mothered themselves (or their siblings or even their own parents) - and to the fathers that took on the roles of mamas. . I send love to the mamas that are working on becoming better mamas. . .. and a special prayer to the women that helped other women become mamas. . Happy Mother’s Day to my mama. And to her mama. And thank you to Noah, for making me a mama.

:: 💁🏼‍♀️You can’t please everyone 🤷🏼‍♀️ :: And trying to do so comes at a cost of our own mental and physical wellness.. :: Guilty as charged. I’ve forever lived in such a way that I’ve been trying to gain acceptance, approval and love and only fleetingly at times felt belonging, until having Ruby, I started to look at change.. :: I have a lot of work to do to break habits surrounding this but it’s going to be worth its weight in gold.. :: It’s so easy to throw around “I don’t care what anyone else thinks”.. I don’t think I have said this much in the last decade or so because, man I do.. So it’s one of the biggest things I’m wanting to change so I am being unapologetically me. :: While I may talk about things openly, it is met with a lot of internal tension, I worry what people will think, if I’m coming across as self indulgent for sharing, if I’ve said the wrong things.. It’s tough.. :: But I figure the only way to get past it is to keep on going and just try my best, videos, posts and blogs will get better with practise and hopefully sharing my story in such a way it’s personal instead of trying too hard. :: The biggest obstacle in sharing my video yesterday was the fear I feel in sharing stories of what has happened to me for the backlash I could get and have already got for opening up and asking or saying it’s not normal to be treated this way?! :: I live in constant fear of carrying on the inter generational pain.. The thing is, if I suppress feelings and push them down, it’s going to be like a pressure cooker. The only way to move forward and evolve is to address these painful feelings and memories, see them for what they are, work out what I took from them and forgive myself for the ways I have coped and develop mentally healthy ways to move forwards. :: I’m learning. It’s a life long learning and healing process, so the biggest thing for me is keeping going and trusting the process no matter how hard it is and just learning not to care about opinions. :: I am still my biggest critic, so working on positive self talk is taking the focus right now in my own development as it is definitely the hardest for me to do. ::

«Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good» is a quote I’m repeating to myself late
«Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good» is a quote I’m repeating to myself lately. . I am that type A kind of person that wants things done immediately (preferably yesterday) and perfectly. I set high standards for myself - sometimes so high that other things in my life suffer. Like my health. . I’m working on stepping out of my own head, witnessing how I push myself and then learning to approach myself with a little more compassion, love and safety. . This upcoming week I have exams. During my last exams, my grandfather (who I lived with parts of my childhood) had just passed away, my business was thriving (which meant it needed more attention than ever) and I was studying. . Somehow I did really well on those exams, but I also got myself a migraine that lasted four days, fatigue that lasted a month and so so so many tears. . This next week I’m practicing not acing my exams. That’s right. While I’ve previously kicked myself and felt ashamed of anything less than an A, I will now work on being comfortable with any grade. I will study. I will do good, but good is enough and I am enough without striving for perfection. My health deserves to come first and I deserve to get through exams without suffering. . Compassion compassion compassion. Also #firstworldproblems , but a problem nonetheless. . 🙋🏻‍♀️ Any other recovering perfectionists want an accountability partner?

Hows the ride going?? Do you wish you never started this move toward self confid
Hows the ride going?? Do you wish you never started this move toward self confidence??? I know the feeling trust me! And I want to say something to you.. Just because someone did not meet the need you asked them to it doesn't mean what you're asking for is too much, is unobtainable or doesn't exist. You have just been asking the WRONG people to meet it. So before you go throwing out your newly found boundaries, desires and confidence just take a look around you and check that the people you are in company with reflect what you want from your life, what you know you deserve and that they are working just as hard on themselves as you are.. because when you get on that self worth train there really is no stopping, people join for a bit and then they get off the train again because you exceed them in your expectations.. this is ok! You are on your way somewhere higher.. so hold tight to your seat, hold fast to your intention and TRUST that you will arrive at better and when you do you'll look around and say hey, it was worth the effort. Sending you love and confidence to hold on.... it is the best and worst ride of your life.. and you WILL arrive a changed person ✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻😘😘😘😘

Good morning peeps! Next week, starting Monday 13th, will be the Mental Health A
Good morning peeps! Next week, starting Monday 13th, will be the Mental Health Awareness Week 2019, so I decided to dedicate this throwback #monologuethursday to that. I believe that there is still too much ignorance about mental health issues, that leads to either a stigma that certainly doesn't do any good, or to something that I find, if possible, even worse, which is the use of mental issues as an excuse for any kind of disgusting behavior, especially when it gets to abuses. And I believe that only by erasing the stigma we can achieve two important goals: helping out those of us who are really suffering, and not giving any confused and misinterpreted excuse to those who don't have a problem, but ARE a problem, and have no shame at misusing what is a real illness as just a cover up for their attitudes. I find this monologue pretty appropriate for this theme, as it speaks about the journey of a woman who f*cks up pretty badly, but who also has the honesty to face her mistakes and try to fix them in order to fix her life and the lives of those who she affected. let's help each other to find the strength to look ourselves in the eye, see what's wrong and love ourselves enough to fix it.

:: 🥰 Evolving 🥰 :: For as long as I can remember I’ve always been trying to do better, to be better, to do more, to be more... :: With that I’ve always fell hard on my mistakes, beating myself up for things done wrong, wrong choices made, things I felt I shouldn’t have said or done and spent a lot of time trying to work out why I felt lost or not sure what I wanted or feeling like I ‘should be’ somewhere much different or ‘better’.. Persistently lacking fulfilment and unhappy and upset because if I was working so hard to do, be, build what I wanted, why wasn’t I happy?.. :: Of course, now I’m starting to see that that is why I have been unhappy and unfulfilled.. I’ve never really been present.. :: And in not taking time to understand myself and why I feel and act certain ways, I’ve not known what it is I’m actually trying to achieve, I’ve been working to do things to impress others in the hope the acceptance will bring me happiness.. sheeeet :: Like so many others, any time I feel like I am unhappy or have fallen, I look at additions to myself.. a new qualification, a new project, change my body shape, work to acquire something I physically want.. :: And none of it worked, if anything it just added more layers and more questions.. :: I think the best thing we can do for ourselves and time we could put into learning something new is by learning ourselves. :: Learning myself, or well, being at the very beginning of learning myself has been some of the hardest work I have ever done, it’s not easy, it’s been about ‘touching feels’ and experiences and responses I locked away right and covered up with a coping mechanism or falseness.. But it is becoming so enlightening, freeing and rewarding.. :: It’s quite exciting to know that I am working to go back to the very core of who I am meant to be and finding her, before I changed so many things to become who I have felt I should be to be accepted and loved. :: The crazy thing is that I have added so many of those layers over the years that in some ways I have no idea who I was meant to be. And a lot of who I have became IS that.. :: I am starting to peel back those layers and be proud of who I am and who I have been

It’s mental health awareness week. And I wanted to give this little reminder to anyone who may need it, myself included, that it’s okay to not be okay. . It’s okay to feel exhausted after a full night of sleep. It’s okay to feel blue for no reason other than that’s how you feel. It’s okay to cry over things that appear to be trivial. . As long as you are feeling your feelings. Accepting your emotions but believing that this too shall pass. . Love yourself even when you don’t like yourself. And let others love you enough to help you like yourself again. . . . #mentahealthawareness#cmha#mentalhealth#selflove#selfcare#MHA

:: 🥰 Thank Youu 🥰 :: A huge thank you to everyone who nominated us at Strongmamamoves.Aberdeen for a Raring2go! Aberdeen City & Shire Magazine award ❤️ We were finalists for the Best New Business Launched Jan-Dec 2018 ❤️ :: It was one hell of a tough year battling situational Post Natal Depression leaving me with severe chronic insomnia sleeping 2hrs a night for almost 7 months and as a single mama too.. I decided to set up my mum and baby exercise class and personal training business in spite of this and was grateful to meet such wonderful and inspiring mums and babies and feel a part of watching them all grow as wonderful little humans and strong mothers. This in turn helped me to build some confidence back and allowed me to make wonderful new connections and friends 💜 :: At the beginning of the year things got tougher again so I had to dial it back a bit.. :: But I’m pleased to say I’m feeling a bit stronger I am able to get going with the classes with a new strength. :: I am hoping to be able to combine it with my passion for mental health awareness, particularly maternal/perinatal mental health and inclusion down the line, I am working on some bits.. :: Anyway, thank you again to everyone for all your continued support and a special thank you to Karen Russell who is my longest standing StrongMama coming into her 8th Month💪🏼 :: And of course to my muse Ruby Roo who is the reason I am blessed to be a StrongMama 🥰 :: Yes, we are only 8 months old as a business 👶🏼💕proud of me, honestly this time x

:: 🔮 Forward Thinking 🔮 :: I am REALLY enjoying the positive affirmations. :: I’m finding it is getting easier to pull it back when my mind starts running away with me and my normal habits of negative self talk and catastrophic thinking set in.. :: Challenges are popping up all over the show and I feel a weird sense of calm, not that there is zero element of omgwtf, but it feels like I have got this, I have got my problem solving hat on.. :: But I have also got my ‘Amanda do what you can, write your list and tick off as you go and give yourself due praise for it’ hat on.. I’m realising that instead of putting too much on my plate and then saying ‘I can’t do this’.. :: If I set my wheels in motion, remember what I’ve achieved so far and keep making baby steps forward, I will do what I need to and more.. :: So it’s definitely motivation to keep up the affirmations.. :: I will pop the ones I’m using and enjoying in the morning by @thehonestguys in my stories and let me know how you get on ❤️ :: #mentahealthawareness#cptsdrecovery#adultchildrenofalcoholics#mummyblogger#aberdeenblogger#strongmum#strongwomen#podcast#mentalhealth#honestmotherhood#postnataldepression#traumasurvivor#keeponmoving#mindfulness#affirmations#yougotthis#yougotthismama#strongmamamoves

What is your lie????.......
The thing you think about yourself that is too
awful
What is your lie????....... The thing you think about yourself that is too awful to share, too dark to tell a soul.. that eats you up, And pulls you down...... . Facing our darkest belief is tough but necessary for moving forward.. it takes strength but we can do it. When you peel back the layers of avoidance, walls and fear around those beliefs you will see how old they are and how they were formed in old trauma, old emotion and old fear. Those beliefs you hold about yourself underneath actually have a lot of power and shape your whole existence.. whether you like it or not, whether you know it or not... so it's better to know them, to face them and then CALL them out!!! Call them out by: 1) Writing them down 2) Questioning their logic 3) Tell them its bull**** And then choose to let them go... Burn that paper you wrote them on and say to yourself you are not listening anymore, take your power back and know they dont rule you,you choose what you want to live by... and MEAN it Sending you love and the ability to see through the bull😘😘😘✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻

These fuzzy bears got caught holding paws. 🐻 🐾 ❤️ Baxter is wearing a navy polo shirt. He was diagnosed last year w/ CCD-Canine Cognitive Dysfunction, commonly known as Doggy dementia or Doggy Alzheimer’s. We have used a #thundershirt w/ him for years, but accidentally found out clothing makes him more confident & less afraid! He’s on meds for the dementia (causes anxiety b/c he forgets where he is or who we are at times, “new” noises-noises he doesn’t remember at that moment-scare him...) We’ve been learning all we can to help him & his meds made the difference between life & death for him. (He had a mental break right before diagnosis. We didn’t recognize the early symptoms-staring into space, licking walls, getting lost in his own yard, not responding to commands he knows well, anxiety, paw licking. We worked w/ his bits of normal thunder/fireworks anxiety all his life, but this break was awful & terrifying. He went for his own paws-chewing until they bled & would not stop. & I don’t mean a little each day-I mean he started chewing and did. not. stop. We immediately took him to the vet & it took 3 weeks of trying meds along w/ 24hour care from us—cleaning his wounds, bandaging them, keeping him from hurting himself. A cone wasn’t safe. He panicked so hard & he could somehow get an arm in any type of cone we tried. He could’ve easily broken a limb w/ the force of his fits. The cone itself terrified him. It took everything in me & every bit of love to soothe him the littlest bit, bear hug him when needed, distract him, & keep him asleep. He became afraid of the dark & would sleep for minutes only. Lots of walks too (husband did that. Ya’ll know my body has a few issues... I was wheelchairing it at that time. We tried tranquilizers temporarily, but they just confused him. #prozac worked for him. He’s on 20mg. (Same as his human. 😉) He’a doing really well & he hasn’t had any breaks like that since. This illness does not have a cure & does usually get worse w/ age. We love him SO much & are giving him the best life possible. (Ctd below) #MaddieandBaxter#caninecognitivedysfunction

:: 💭Reframing Thoughts 💭 :: It’s been a big ole week!! As a self proclaimed mental heath advocate and very much so for maternal health I would have loved to join you more this week for the advent of #maternalmentalhealth week 🙌🏽 :: However, my contribution to this wonderful campaign was to listen to the needs of my own #mamamentalwhealth and step the f* back.. Practise what I preach.. I can contribute the rest of the year 💭 :: No, my friends, the troll didn’t win and shut me down/up.. They gave me a pretty epic epiphany..🧐 :: I reframed my thinking.. The trigger that led me to feel like I had completely broken down for a couple days (though does it fully count as a breakdown when you’re fully functioning day time?) micro breakdown.. was like a storm, that then cleared and set me on my path of wondering why I respond in certain ways, to certain triggers, Why? Where did they come from? And how can I reframe them and start rewriting the script..📜 :: I’m not a victim, I will share my nameless stories that are my experience and what I’ve learned... :: But in the meantime, I’m learning some new habits, resting my mind and showing myself some damn respect and love. 💕 :: NOW, I feel ready to forgive myself for how I’ve dealt with trauma and truly love myself, but it’s going to take time. I’m looking forward to it.❤️ :: Wanna know what I’m putting into practise?..☺️ ::

MAY you have joy! | The battle is in the mind. Hello everyone! May is mental health awareness month and a good time to get educated and help yourself or someone you know. All you need is a mind. We need to #endthestigma of mental health as being cuckoo and reserved for a padded room and straight jacket. Often frowned upon, scoffed at, ignored. No more! Not only is this unacceptable human form but it is inhibiting and unhelpful at an individual level and furthermore collectively damaging for society. The battle begins in the mind and often spreads through the body. None of us is exempt and at some point all of us will deal with a battle in the mind. If you get to be human you get to battle! Some show it, some try to hide it and some hide it really well. A simple thought mixed with a particularly physiology and in a dire circumstance can be a potent mix for a battle. This month follow along because I’ll be sharing some tools that have helped me strengthen my own mind, techniques that I use to harness and reprogram negative thoughts to ultimately find joy and thrive! It takes work. It takes intentional work and it’s not easy but if willing, it’s doable. On the other side there’s joy but getting to the other side requires going through —not around, not over, not running away— through! So no matter what you MAY be going through know that as said in Psalm 30:5 “...weeping MAY endure the night but joy commeth in the morning.” For all your days in May I wish you not just happiness but overwhelming joy! All my love, Dee

Ambiguity is infuriating, the unknown terrifying, the hidden path soul destroying.... But what if it's not, what if its US who are driving the infuriation, terror and destruction ...what would it be like to not try to work out why things are happening, or what is around the corner... I know this is scary but hear me out cos the irony of me writing this is immense.... I always used to ask why, whether it's why has my car stalled, why am I experiencing this situation or why cant I work this out??? I was the why girl and trust me it worked! Worked for me being good at my job, me feeling in control, me not getting into emotionally vulnerable situations... the why helps us to feel mastery or at least that things can be worked out... you know what though? It drove me to utter distraction..... I over thought everything, I was the observer on the sidelines of my own life! Feeling in control but actually not experiencing things fully and that is a sad place to be... So everytime that voice comes in (and it still does from time to time) and says "but WHY???!!!" I say to it.....Do I NEED to know??? Do I NEED to work it out? ?? Or can I sit with not knowing and TRUST instead, trust that things move, change and just when we feel stuck recognise how far we've come and trust we will continue in the right direction cos there IS no right direction.. there is only where we are cos that's where we are.... Happy #mentahealthawareness month! Sending you love and letting things be tonight 😘✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻😘😘😘

Mental Illness: This is the world we live in! It is often seen as taboo to admit that “something just isn’t right!”. A lot of the times, we sweep these things under the table or go about life, thinking that we can do it on our own! Don’t make a mistake of carrying the world on your shoulders...solo!

Ahhh, the low maintenance tea of someone who is completely and utterly mentally exhausted😩 not really a recipe and in fact I didn’t even make this, Craig did ❤️ but still 100% on plan using the bap as my Hex B and counting 1.5 syns for the Quorn sausages - just goes to show you can still have all the things you’ve always enjoyed whilst being on SW. Living with a #GAD means sometimes experiencing days on end feeling completely overwhelmed with every tiny little thing, until something stupid tips you and it all comes spilling out. Think a night of self care and a bath instead of the million jobs I have to do is definitely in order. Look after yourselves people! 😔❤️ #mentahealthawareness#posiliving#pma#anxiety l #slimmingworld#weightlossjourney#slimmingworldvegetarians#SW#weightloss#weightlossjourney#healthyeating#swuk#slimmingworldjourney#healthy#slimmingworldfamily#motivation#healthyfood#healthylifestyle#foodoptimising#food#slimmingworldfood

What is Peachey Me? How does this affect me? I have been on a long journey battling Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Mental Health and transitions in life. A journey where my identity was lost and felt very isolated from the world. Have you ever felt misplaced? Not sure what your purpose is? Who am I? Have I succeeded or failed in life? Have you ever compared yourself to others putting them on a pedistool? My journey has taught me acceptance and repeating a moto/prayer I learnt from AA "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference." I believe in connecting with other women to share our journeys and help another. Support, love and connections helps us overcome our difficulties, circumstances and reach our highest potential. Connect with me, let's build a true support network that enables us to be stronger, fiercer and happier. Xo Love and Light oX

I am prone to a lot of negative internal chatter and when it starts to get too loud it makes its way out and I push people away with behaviour I have wrongly told myself is me.. :: My next step, is to look at all of my triggers, responses and all the things I do that keep me right too!! Of which there are loads; I got this far and every time I’ve got knocked down by life I got back up again. :: I’m going to be doing some exercises i’be found on @the.holistic.psychologist page AMAZING.. And continue to take inspiration from others. :: I’m going to be much more present and work hard on my positive self talk, stop that negative chatter that creeps in when I’m anxious.. :: I will fall down but I will never quit. :: I’m going to be taking unedited posts from my @beingmamabear_ through my time in pregnancy and first year to show my experiences of #maternalmentalhealth , I hope you enjoy them. :: #mentahealthawareness#cptsdrecovery#adultchildrenofalcoholics#mummyblogger#aberdeenblogger#strongmum#strongwomen#podcast#mentalhealth#honestmotherhood#postnataldepression#traumasurvivor#umbecoming#mindfulness#present#mondaymotivation#postpartumdepression

:: 🙂Walking Away For Self Care 💎 :: I’m asked a lot about how I made it through my first year as a mama with situational post natal depression and pretty severe insomnia leaving me with 2hrs sleep most nights for 7 months.. 😰 :: It took finally seeing myself for how strong and amazing I was and learning to start accepting what I deserve and walking away from people and situations that valued my worth at less than that. :: It IS NOT an easy thing to do. :: But it is absolutely essential for your self preservation and wellness.. which you deserve right?.. :: I will be doing a podcast on this topic, it’s a sensitive one; it’s a powerful one.. :: When we think walking away we think too far forwards, sometimes, like in my case, the ties being walked away from are substantial relationships in your life - family, spouses, close friends.. :: But if you are in so much pain that it is affecting your mental health to the point it is physically affecting you, you need to drop the social views of these ties and cut them to heal.. I say this assuming you have already tried communicating your feelings and it remains unresolved.. :: In my case, it wasn’t forever. Some ties are altered forever but they are now present to an extent in my life.. some relationships are now stronger than ever for the space taken. 💎 :: When you give yourself proper time to heal and lose your fragility and vulnerability, you can reasses who stays and who goes..❤️ :: Space and time was one of the most powerful gifts I gave myself. I healed, I learned about how to handle MY reactions to certain situations in order to forgive and move on.. :: I believe that there was pain on both sides in my story and I am in a position to understand that we feel and react differently.. I truly believe that people act and react in pain. :: So the greatest gift we can give ourselves is to set ourselves free by letting go in many different ways.. :: I’m still very much learning and letting go of some things easier than others.. :: But I’m proud of myself so far.. Forgiving and understanding myself is coming the slowest.. but that’s why I talk and why I get counselling, support and self care is so important ❤️ ::
