If someone is criticizing you, it’s a reflection on them, not you. If people say horrible things about your appearance, it stems from their own insecurities. Remember...you’re beautiful just the way you are. No really...say it and believe it. When you do, your confidence makes your beauty shine through even more. No one looks the same. Our differences make us uniquely beautiful. Plus you’re never going to please everyone so #DOYOU#loveyourself#liveyourlife#loveyourlife#selflove
Thanks for snapping this pic in the moment @auslyle
Today we buried a 23-year old woman who was killed because she was a lesbian. She left behind this 4-year old beautiful boy.
Same sex and transgender couples love each other, yet get punished by others.
Love oh love, what a blessed thing.....
A man decided she should be with a man, she refused-and she was killed.
I’m broken...... #ourlivesmatter#RIPNoxi#liveyourlife#wearestillhere#whowillbenext Appreciation to @zmuholi @inkanyisomedia
for the longest time, i didn’t know who i was or what i wanted. i was lost. i was stuck in negative loops. but i’m finally starting to feel like ME. i am on the path to live up to my true potential. my thoughts and actions are becoming aligned. i choose to practice self-love and self-compassion. both concepts foreign to me just two years ago. i have become aware of how my negative mindset affects my reality. i am aware when something in the present triggers stories and emotions from my past. i’m not perfect, and not sure i ever will be, but that’s why it's a practice. fear of imperfection is not a good enough reason to not try.
i strive NOT for perfection, but for progress. for positive change. i strive to live in the uncomfort zone. because that is where growth happens. that is where i learn to enjoy the journey and not fret about the destination or when i’ll get there. i try to appreciate every moment for what it is, instead of trying to control and manipulate it into what i think it should be. which, btw, is REALLY hard for a perfectionist! but my sanity is more important and the sooner we realize perfection is unattainable, the sooner we can all take risks to live up to our true potential. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
the ONLY thing you truly control in this life is your mindset, your actions/reactions, your beliefs, YOU! who do you want to be? what do you want to accomplish? GO DO IT! see this as the permission you tell yourself you need. don’t let the perceptions or opinions of others hold you back. find what you love and LIVE IT! this life is yours. yours to be happy, to be free, to be love. what will you do with it?
