  • Enjoying my life. Being calm. Having internal rest. I couldn’t create this myself so I put the responsibility on medication for a long time. Guys that is YOUR job. You know what’s stronger than Prozac? Empathy, ambition, gratitude, self acceptance, humility, grace, the list goes on. If you think I applied this to a little bit of social anxiety or just felt nervous sometimes you’re wrong. I had chronic anxiety and depression. Anxiety that would keep me from getting up and even leaving my bed some days. You have to suffocate it out. Suffocate your hopeless and despondent environment and flood it with nothing but thought altering, favorable, approving, encouraging, useful and promising content. The game your playing is brain chemistry!! What do you think medications are doing?! They are targeting neurotransmitters that affect brain chemicals. _____ I was the person who would get so irritated when someone would say to me just look on the bright side. I actually think it’s pretty insensitive and that shit doesn’t work. It will only make that person resist more. It’s such a surface thing to say. What I AM saying is think of the future you want for yourself. What job, hobby etc. inspires you or makes you want to a better existence. Choose it and expand from there. I use the word suffocate because you have to be aggressive. Just as aggressive as the depression that plagues you every day and comes to steal your present and future. Put on podcasts, music with genuine lyrics, read book after book or put on audible, go on YouTube and listen to every motiversity video. Don’t listen to another cardi b song for even just a week and see how different shit is. Guys I fall asleep to this stuff playing every night because I literally want it to be so imbedded in me. I want it to seep into my subconscious. Be as extraas possible!! I understand that many people with anxiety and depression will not agree with this at all, but am I lying? If it worked for someone who couldn’t function on a regular basis what makes your circumstance different? If it worked for someone who has also been told it runs in the family why would you be the exception? Let the light in.

  • Salutations for Venetia . . I made the photographs in this series into decals for a ceramic wall piece but I didn't execute it well as a finished piece. Most of the decals looked forced onto the slabs last minute and my professors made sure to tell me just that. Next time, I'll make sure to blow up the image so that they're cropped within the frame. If I can find a photo of it, I'll repost it along with this caption. For now, I hope this image can be appreciated as is. . . Gorgeous hand model: @veni_vidi_vici_sweetie . Photographer: Me .

  • To my clients, colleagues, friends, and neighbors in the Triangle, I hope you will stay safe and warm during the winter weather. Here are some self care ideas for while you're stuck inside: write in your journal, have some hot tea or cocoa, review your resolutions, re-do your to-do list, organize your desk or a drawer or a cabinet, pamper yourself with an at-home facial, trade shoulder or foot rubs with your significant other or another friend or family member, meditate, read, have a nap... I know many of you have children at home to care for, etc., but I would encourage you to try to use some of this "down time" to nourish yourself in some positive way. #apex #cary #raleigh #durham #triangle #snow #winter #weather #selfcare #personalcare #massagetherapist #apexnc

  • Oh yeah, this. Busyness. I started to wake up in stages. The clincher was when I moved from a stop-start-change-brings-big-feels model to a more forgiving slow-and-steady model. It really came together when I broke my collarbone, which timed out just as I was to start a new form of meditation and coursework that introduced me to new community and supports (rarher than holing up). I was severely limited in movement just as I was reframing how I live in my body and the world-at-large. It was a remarkable opportunity and I paid attention. Almost immediately I participated in my first weekthun and experienced another huge shift in terms of recognizing which habitual patterns I turn to when I want to feel less (or it habitually feels safer to feel less). The shift is that I’m much stronger in this respect, more tender, than I previously believed myself to be. So, it hasn’t been yoga for me - yet - but I’m on board with what Jane shares in this video. - - #repost @janetheclapp with @get_repost ・・・ BODY WISDOM WEDNESDAY - Why do we become habitually attracted to intense, faced paced movement? Or, to environments with intense stimuli, loud music, coaches that yell, or find it absolutely stress inducing to engage in quieter, slower movements. Maybe ask yourself, what's up with that anyway? #recoveryourwarrior #bodywisdom #bodywisdom wednesday #selfcare #slowdown

  • Hey everyone! Sorry to drop off the face of the earth for a little bit I have not been feeling the best (which is a trend lately) and was hoping that rest would help. Still not feeling great so may need to get a consultation. Thanks for staying tuned and I’ll try my best to resume normal life soon!!

  • We cannot heal in the same environment we got sick in. It is more than the physical space that dis-ease in the body has occurred, it is also the mental and emotional environment that we must change. . . . And that means asking for help. . . . You can’t do it alone. Being emotional and opening up to our vulnerabilities is scary and often times painful. You are stepping out into the unknown and beyond your comfort zone. Change is difficult. I get it! We must be willing to assess our own roadblocks that are keeping us from ideal health and being the best version of ourselves. And that only occurs when we commit to making ourselves our first priority. . . . How long are you going to continue to put your relationships, job, career or others first? What other excuses are holding you back? If you can’t take care of yourself, how can you help others? What boundaries do you need to set for your emotional well-being? . . . True freedom lies in forgiving yourself from the pain you have caused yourself and letting go. Stop beating yourself up for the state of your health and make a commitment to putting self-love and self-care number one on your list of to-do’s. Your health is the foundation for your life. Let’s put the joy back in life! . . . #healing #love #life #selfcare #health #wellbeing #sun #fun #breathe #ocean #beach #release #forgiveness #gratitude #tulum #seeyousoon #findyourjoy #health yjoyfulliving

  • There’s a reason we use plants on our logo and our branding, because they are incredibly resilient, just like you. They get through tough winters, not enough care, darkness, they can rebloom and blossom. They grow, just like you

  • Day 3 of #ywatrue . Y’all...I messed with the timer function and getting into pose for a good 5 minutes. I took probably 10 photos and then once I took the picture, I found myself scrutinizing my form, my belly rolls, my facial expression. I nixed the ones where my face said I was trying too hard because it was true. I was trying too hard. I kept this one, where my face has a half-smile, where I’m enjoying myself and this process, where my form may or may not be awesome, and where my belly rolls are on display. Because you know what, if I can’t love my very own self in the right here and right now, then what? I look at this picture and I love it. No, it’s not perfect, but it’s me and it’s my body and I love it. I even tried taking some pictures where the top half of my head is in the photo, but I just ended up with dog hair on my pants and photos that aren’t as good as this one. #yogaeverydamnday #yogaathome #fwfg #selfcare #loveyourself
