Sadly this is a #fbf my recent episode of glandular fever has left me sleeping 8 hours during the day, and a crazy insomniac over night. My anxiety (Martha) is giving me the guilt trip for not exercising daily, so we have compromised with a slow 20 min walk on the treadmill just to keep the anxiety tornado at bay. It's all about compromise. #glandularfever#exercise

Making up day four of the #standupandshinechallenge !! One of the things that most impacted me on day four was seeing how such a small thing could make such a big difference. I wanted to make this little list to remind me of simple ways to help others shine ✨ the more positivity and love you share, the more returns back to you. Feel free to screenshot, save, and share, swipe left for a more minimal version! P.s. stickers are from the @adesignkit app!

Rest & Recovery Centre Floater Profile: Shelly Brown
Shelly was Rest & Recovery Centre’s first float customer. Shelly is a mother, wife and works full time and manages to squeeze in a float when she can. She even enjoys bringing along her partner and eldest son to float as she wants them to enjoy the benefits. Shelly has floated previously, and her feedback has helped us grow into what we are today.
We asked Shelly a few questions:
Why do you float? Number of reasons, I like the benefits of Epsom salt on my body & I love mediating.
How often do you float? Not enough
How does floating benefit you? Multiple benefits, it gives me a pick me up and my mind is clear.
Advice for first timers? Don’t over think it and enjoy

The different levels of hell that everyone talks about.. What happens when love leaves ? What happens when the person walks away ? Do they really take the love away with them ? All these questions run through my head .. I sit back and then wonder with a different aspect, let’s say the love was never theirs, the love that i am talking about wasn’t brought into the relationship by the other person. What if it was you who laid it out on the table, to feast upon for him/her. Because, is love really capable of leaving ?? Love grows, builds, is made and stays.. it doesn’t walk out on you.. Maybe it’s people.
Again these humans amaze me, every single time i am surprised. Which again surprises me that i am still surprised after all these years of learning.
How easy it is to blame everything on love since it can’t speak for itself like we do .. We can clarify and provide all the reasoning, justify our actions and blame everything and everyone around us, except ourselves.
I guess love stays then, it doesn’t walk away.. we just fail to see it with all the grief and tears clouding our vision since the person walked away .. Next time get up, pick all the love you put out there that was unappreciated, pick it up from the table where it lay abandoned, pick it up and put it all back where it belongs.. in you, your heart. It belongs there. Let it stay in and let it feel home, let it heal you from within and love you as it is supposed to, let it keep you warm and give you all the compassion that you seek, that you deserve. Let it spread kindness to your soul and enlighten you from within. Love belongs in you, not outside.
And when you have it in abundance then share it around, pour it into hearts that are in need, just next time don’t lay it all out to be taken for granted.
Me and You, we deserve the love we give out so freely, equally. Save some of it for yourself.. so when they leave, love stays... if it doesn’t then it’s anything but love .. because love always stays. #anjumchoudhary#findinglostsouls .
Thankyou for reading and appreciating my words

While laying in bed, struggling with anxiety and falling asleep, I just realized today is my “rebirthday.” 3 years ago today, after spending all day feeling awful, Felix took me to the ER where I was rushed into a room. The last thing I remember is seeing a 211 heart rate and a 60/20 blood pressure on my the monitor before everything went black. I woke up in an excruciating, split-second pain. I had been shocked back to life.
I’ve known I had a heart condition since I was 16, but that moment made me realize how serious it was and started me down a path of extreme anxiety, PTSD, pain, depression, but also perseverance, resilience, determination, and an appreciation for life and everything in it that I couldn’t have even fathomed before.
I will never forget how terrifying that day was. But looking back, I am thankful for it. There have been highs and the lowest of lows, but I would have never realized how capable I am and how precious time is without it.

Unhealthy relationships and relationship tactics have one common denominator - a message received by a child from a parental figure concerning their needs. There are two types of this permission- only this person can fulfill my needs- which causes anger if that exact person doesn’t comply, and then leads to codependency or counterdependency- I will love you no matter what or I cannot get what I want either way so I better run from here. The second message- no one can satisfy my needs- which also ends in co and counterdependency. There are other types of messages and variation of them but for now let’s stick to those two. The solution is- I can satisfy my own needs and I can ask other people to help me, and if they refuse I remain Ok and so do they. Yes, it’s not an easy loop to find, and therapy of dependencies does take a while but the result is an ability to build healthy version of relationships and happiness, and its worth it. Have an awesome Sunday guys. With love M. #kiev#istanbul#motivated#mentalhealth#motivationalquotes#healthmind#healing#healingheart#healingpath#loveyourself#itgetsbetter#fit#fitfam#fitgirl#fitness#fitlife#fitnessmotivation

A Psychic Change⠀
On the other hand—and strange as this may seem to those who do not understand—once a psychic change has occurred, the very same person who seemed doomed, who had so many problems he despaired of ever solving them, suddenly finds himself easily able to control his desire for alcohol, the only effort necessary being that required to follow a few simple rules.

Sabbatical: a period of time set aside for rest, a sabbath from a time of consistent service and ministry.
We tend to glamorize sabbatical. However, I’d venture to say that in many... maybe even most cases sabbatical becomes necessary because of stress, burnout, dying passion, ill health or some various combination of the slew. Rest often times looks like digging deep into the sludge and mess within that we’ve swept to the side for the sake of service. I’m guilty of denying self care for the sake of ministry, I’ll be the first to admit it... because if I don’t tell you my friends will. 😂 Rest is the opposite of my nature. I want to serve, be in action, get things done... but the lord LEADS ME TO GREEN PASTURES AND MAKES ME TO LAY BESIDE STILL WATERS... HE MAKES ME!! Because he’s good, he makes me. It’s hard, but he’s worth choosing every. Single. Gosh. Darn. Time.

When Queens @jeniferlewisforreal and @chirla_org 👸🏽 Collide, see each other’s Royalty and honor it in the name of #mentalhealth and the need to have the conversation #iampowerrising what an amazing gathering. I am refreshed, renewed and revived. Thank you @leahdaughtry and your amazing team for trusting and following the vision. You’ve chased a thousand, we now in unity with you will chase millions. Special shoutout to @latoiajones 🎩 your labor is not in vain. ❤️
I love how when @brenebrown talks about vulnerability being the condition for belonging, she acknowledges how hard that is to really do. We think that we can show up and belong without doing the hard part of standing in our truth even when it’s different or scary. We just keep learning that the only way to true connection is simply being our whole, richly complex selves. Without exception.
If you want true belonging, you have to be willing to show parts of yourself that you have a hard time accepting. What I call sophistication—the art of dancing with your imperfections!
Otherwise, you’re sacrificing parts of your beautiful being to fit in. We want to see all of you!
You really can't tell what's going on in a person's mind, can you? Exhibit A: post-panic attack face (Yup, it's become an awareness microblog of sorts)
Posting this to remind myself that on this day, I received so much kindness from the universe. From people I am close to, to people I merely say hi to in my usual coffee shop. Getting a hug, being handed water and tissues while having a panic attack in public.. so much love and comfort over there. We were just people, and we were family.
Thank you, so much. 😢❤ ---

A year since I decided to fight again. On that day my doc told me I'd be 80% better in 6 months. I left his clinic hopeful and teary; I never thought 'better' would even be possible.
But it took longer than that.
It was getting better after some time, then sliding back down real steeply, only to seem worse than ever. And then, trying again.
In tears and sweat and, nope, it wasn't much on motivation. Motivation died so many times in the process that I wanted to give it up. But it took much discipline, to get up even when you don't want to, and faithfulness to the goal/promise to self. It was realizing value even in its tiniest form, and choosing to hold on to it real tight, every single day. It was believing that change is possible and going towards it with the smallest steps, one day at a time.
On days that it was super hard, I'd aim small, like, 'just make it through this hour', 'just make it alive through this day'. Those were the goals. Daily checklist didn't involve huge life-changing steps nor attending events and such all the time; on the first months my only to-do for every day was 'be out in the sun for 10mins'. It was about being kind to one's self, giving myself a pat in the back for small victories like making the bed, rewarding with food etc, and not lashing with rebuke on days I didn't make it out of bed til evening. It was deliberately learning a kinder mental vocabulary, and choosing it over the autopilot self-debilitating words. It was allowing myself to cry, and then get up again.
A day at a time.
It was tough. And eventually what was tougher was how to get back to functioning in society, more than just 'staying alive for the day'.. to go back to school, to face people without having to take meds for panic attacks, to teach kids Math, to talk with friends and strangers alike without being too shut.. but it was doable, with lots of patience, recognition, acceptance, and good support systems.
I am thankful that this year I woke up, for the first time in so long, not with the familiar, 'sht, nagising na naman ako', but rather, smiling with 'wow buhay ulit ako today.' Still far from being super, but after a year on, I am just grateful.

Overthinking can very easily cause problems in our lives. The only way to get around it is to allow yourself to let go and care less about what others think - the less you care, the happier you’ll be 🙏💯

Last night, I got a random call from one of my long distance bestfriends; she lives in New York, I in Florida. It was 15 to one in the morning, so I was a little solicitous in answering because she hasn’t been herself lately. I picked up, and ended up not wanting to put the phone down an hour later when she decided to go to sleep.
I’ve never encountered such a terrible anxiety attack with a loved one before. It was heartbreaking, to say the least. And I’ve never felt so helpless. Sitting there, listening to her cry, I knew there wasn’t anything I could do, let alone say, that would make her feel better in any way. I cried with her, because I understand her, because I felt helpless in not being able to comfort her. And I just listened. Because I knew that that’s what she needed the most. Someone to listen to.
You guys, please understand that anxiety and depression are no joke. I know what it’s like to sit on the other side, to be in a haze, not taking in anything anyone’s saying, to feel hopeless, careless.. But to be on this side, to be the one trying to help in any possible way, listening to a loved one cry and know what they’re going through, it’s just terrible. No words can describe the feeling.
Just typing this out brings me to tears thinking about last night.
I just want to say, if you or someone you know has depression, anxiety—any mental illness, do not turn away from them. Do not ignore them, do not tell them to “snap out of it” or try to come up with some bs to make them feel better.
Just listen to them. Try to understand. They need that the most. They need to know someone is there for them, that someone cares for them, loves them. Show your love, care and comfort in the best way possible.
If, and when, words can’t help, actions will. I promise.
Happy Saturday! ☀️I'm so excited for a fun and relaxing day. This has admittedly been a difficult month so far. The mental and emotional fog is dense and persistent, leaving me with little enthusiasm for my work and the minimum energy needed to make myself get out of bed. It honestly hasn't been this bad in quite some time, and I can't tell you how disconnected and empty I feel some days.
I genuinely think @bybriellebelle reaching out and sending me these beautiful handmade bracelets was a gift from the universe (swipe for a closer look). Reminders to be grateful for where I am but to take a moment in the chaos to breathe is just what I needed. So I plan to spend my weekend doing just that. 💆🏻
If you'd like a little reminder of your own please take a look at @bybriellebelle's page! She has several other gorgeous versions of these bracelets that might speak to you.
Thank you so much for sending me these, Brielle 🖤

I think it’s really easy to get caught up in what the people around us are doing — and trying to keep up with them — causing us to lose sight of the things we actually care about most. Maybe it’s family, traveling or creating art that’s most important to you. Maybe it’s working with nonprofits and making a difference in other peoples’ lives. What types of things do you inherently enjoy and make you, you? •
For me, it’s traveling, experiencing other cultures, social entrepreneurship, and spending time with the ones I love. Maya and Ava play a huge role in keeping me grounded while inspiring me to try new things. What I’ve realized about their nature is that everything they do is purposeful. They inherently know when to eat, sleep and rise. They take care of themselves and are enthusiastic any time they get a chance to ride in the car and go hiking. They live a simple life with few worries or responsibilities, yes, but they live a minimalist life in gratitude always. I want to live like them.
For those who have asked what equipment I use, here’s the truth. At one point, I spent over $8k on camera gear because I wanted to be taken seriously for my art. When I moved to Seattle and got a job downtown, I quickly realized that I didn’t have the time, energy or simple need to own that (beautiful) equipment. I sold all of it and down/upgraded so that I could still take pictures with Maya and Ava while we go on adventures. The difference now is that we are living and creating for us, at our pace, and in gratitude. We’re not trying to keep up, we are at peace while we create memories with our heads in the sky — not buried behind a lens. For what it’s worth, I also quit my downtown job to work for a health and wellness company closer to home so that I would have more time and energy for the girls. Going for a holistic approach to happiness here, the downtown city life just isn’t for everyone — we choose mountains, rivers and beaches! ☺️
For your own health and happiness, be true to who you are and try to find joy in the simple things. Those are the best things that you will cherish forever. 💙 #findyourwild#orvisdogs#orvisambassador#sponsored
