@nomeangirlsatschools Banishing that Inner Mean Girl Not everyday is a beauty contest. This week I’m sharing week 2 - Mean Girl In the Mirror. I really am not a selfie person, because the person I see is so imperfect.
I see a person that’s struggling, constantly wondering if I’m good enough. Today I’m sharing my imperfect self with tweens and helping them banish and diminish that inner voice that holds them back.
We are breaking through the voice that hold us back. I need the message probably even more that those who are hearing it. I am ENOUGH.
I remember posting this a few years ago, but it has even more relevance today than it did then. 💞
I’ve observed a lot of people and situations in my years, as all of you will have too. But one of the things I’ve noticed is that I’ve encountered more selfish people, I.e takers, in comparison to givers and that genuinely makes me sad. .
I believe we can all be self-centred or about ourselves sometimes, but putting yourself first isn’t what I’m getting at. I’m talking here about people who wouldn’t necessarily go out of their way to make another person, animal, tree etc happy, because there’s nothing in it for themselves. .
A simple act of kindness can change a persons whole mood, current frame of mind and how they choose to see or treat things in this big wide world! Yes, really. And that rippling effect is so contagious that you can reach the hearts of many, just by touching the heart of one. 💗🍃✨ #SaphronLondon
Something to remember everyday for a lot of us.
What makes you proud of yourself?
How are you kind to yourself?
For me I need to practice self love and self kindness everyday to make it a habit.
I am proud of my ability to get up mon-fri at 4:30am, so I can do some jobs before being at the gym at 5:30am
How am I kind to myself? This is something I need to work on, but hopefully my being kind to myself will be fueling my mind with positive talk, fueling my body with nourishing food and accepting that things take time and every step I take towards my goals, is a step in the right direction.
It’s been one year since the world lost this sweet girl, and one year since I wrote this for her. And today I share it again, in remembrance of her—and encourage everyone to take a moment to read it. 😢 ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️ Ashley and I met almost a decade and a half ago in Weight Watchers - when we were both way too goddamn young to be there. Most adolescent and teenage girls worry about boys, hair, and makeup, while her and I worried about things like whether we would fit in the desk we were assigned at school or questioning whether or not we would live to see the next day.
I moved away, lost 100 pounds, and didn’t see her again for years. Until one day after I moved back and she came in to the salon to have me cut her hair. It wasn’t until years later that she told me she would never forget me because she was so afraid and embarrassed to have her hair cut - and “I treated her like a normal person and made her feel beautiful”. I cried, because nobody should ever have to feel GRATEFUL that another human treated them with basic kindness because they were so used to being treated poorly because of their appearance.
Over the years, Ashley and I continued our battle with obesity. 1000 times she reached out to me, and 1000 times I reached back with love. Few people will ever understand where I’ve been, but she did. And every time we spoke, I saw myself in her.
Yesterday I fit in to a pair of size 5 jeans, for the first time in my entire life. And yesterday, at the age of 25, Ashley’s body gave out and she passed away.
I did not know her well, our in person conversations were only a handful. But the two of us knew the most broken, vulnerable parts of each other in a way that nobody else could possibly understand. She was the kindest, sweetest soul and her passing has impacted me in a way that words can not even adequately express.
Be kind; we never truly know the demons others are fighting. Spread love; because this world can never have enough. Love yourself; because at the end of the day that’s all we truly have. And if you have a spare moment to send positive vibes and prayers to all who loved this beautiful girl, I would be so grateful. 🖤
🌿~"Different strokes for different folks" . A commom saying that sticks out in the strings of #sound to me..🎶 Most people fear whats different. They dont want to change their mind if it contradicts their beliefs. Some beliefs serving well but some like eat all your food off your plate."
~Well lets just say in #nutrition we definitely dont suggest that 😥 because we all know there is a diffinant cap to whats physically healthy 😔 same as there is a cap for our mental thoughts.. As there are many more old beliefs that could be holding you back from your full potential. ~ So you see, we all seek different things because everyone has a different genetic makeup and unique experiences in life that shape them. What works for one may not work for another. Appreciating differences really strengthen a community knowing we all need eachother to #elevatehigher. Wanting happiness for another is wanting #happiness for self👌 Watching #life unfold and understanding that literally everything is mental & we #create our lives based on those thoughts. So #enjoy#creating#beautiful#thoughts today 🌴🌈🌠
