#mentalhealthdiary - Perception: A subject I have written about before; our perception of others being incorrect. Whilst many judge others negatively (you only have to read the UK tabloids for a glaringly obvious example of this), I have found those with mental health issues often judge others positively. We see a photo of happy, smiley people and project that image of happiness onto their whole lives. And what comes next? Suddenly all of the negativity we have experienced in our OWN lives comes crashing down on us. A close friend of mine once (ingeniously) described it as "comparing our behind the scenes to everyone else's highlight reel"... Part of my journey has been allowing myself to celebrate the good times because they are important for my own progression. If you have followed my journey you will know I have come a long way and lately happiness has come easier... But I still have darker days, I can feel that cloud now and I am doing my best to keep it at bay. I still have a mental health issue and there's still a lot of work to do. Here, I try to give you a truthful sense of the peaks and troughs but elsewhere, don't forget, the day before that happy photo may have been filled with sadness. Those smiles in that moment MAY be masking buried anger or frustration that you will never know about. Next time you make an assumption based on a photo (this goes for me too), remember that perceptions often work against us. . . . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthwarriors #mentalhealtharmy #timetotalk #stopthestigma #mentalhealthjourney #perception #anxiety #depression #instagay #pride #loveislove #lgbt #lovewins #gay #gayman #gaysofinstagram #instabeard #gingerbeard #gaybeard #gayscruff #beardsofinstagram #endthestigmaofmentalhealth

Excuse the mess of my room my mirror etc. 😂 today marks two weeks since I’ve been going to the gym/exercising regularly, I’m working on making this a habit as it helps me stay focused and on track. It’s been helping me with depression and anxiety. And I’ve lost 6 lbs 👍🏼👍🏼. When you’re battling with mental health issues it makes it extremely hard to even get out of bed most of my weight gain I can tie to my mental health issues. This is why getting help is so important, it’s extremely difficult to live a healthy lifestyle, stay fit and lose weight when your mind is keeping you in bed with no motivation to do anything let alone get up and get to the gym. Since getting help by my Dr. I’ve noticed a change in myself and I’m continuing to better myself, and my mental health #fitness #myfitnesspal #fitnessjourney #mentalhealthjourney #shesfit #healthylife #motivation #keepgoing #youreworthit #stayfit #stayfocused #staypositive #justkeepswimming #lifesnotoveryet #fabletics #weightwatchers #mentalhealth #mentalheathisnojoke #gettinghelpishard #gettinghelpisokay #betteryourself #betteryourmind #onestepatatime #onedayatatime #youcandoit

Mental illnesses and trauma are weird and frustrating sometimes. They always hit when you least expect it. I've been having dreams and flashbacks of sorts to a truama that occurred forever ago. Then I had someone pop up in my life, unexpectedly, that really stirred up some negative emotions. Needless to say, I've been ridiculously angry and irritable lately. So very angry. And I don't know how to deal with any of it. I want to shout that IT'S NOT FAIR! And really give this person a piece of my mind. The trauma, the abandonment, the feelings of worthlessness and being alone in it all. All of it taking me back to a place I don't want to be. Trying to take the advice of a past therapist and just sit with it all. Experiencing the emotions and having faith that it'll pass. #recovery #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #depressionsucks #trauma #anxiety #recoveryjourney #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthblogger #blogger #blog #bloggers #illinoisblogger #mentalhealthblogger #midwestblogger #poetry #rupikaur #poet #strength #itsoktonotbeokay
Why have a pencil case full of one colour when you can have loads of colours...and when we put them together we can make a great picture together. So if we all try to be the same as each other then world will be a tad dull... Owning our individual stories, journeys and being authentic about ourselves, our feelings, our thoughts. With appropriate support and help we can defeat the darkness.
Second event down... Another one to go! The second event reminded me that... I AM #builtforthis .. Many of my days have been filled with me ask God "why me?" Lately, I've heard Him say, "Why not you?" I've had to learn that He put me here on this earth with a #purpose and although the #pain can sometimes seem like more than I can bear, I know there's a #purposebehindthepain .. So when friends walk away... Let them. When relationships don't work out... Let it go. When your world keeps changing... Let it. Because YOU are #builtforthis .. Find Kacey Venning on Facebook to learn more about her #builtforthis movement and join in on the conversation about #mentalhealth .. #depression #anxiety #builtforthis #wherementalhealthmeetsfaith #mentalhealth #mentalhealthjourney #coping #copingmethods #copingmechanisms #copingtechniques #peace #joy #happiness #strength #faith #discoveringpockets
Taking a break from my usual feed of oats to show you this yummy salad I had for lunch today!! This salad 🥗 was one of the best salads I’ve ever had with so many different bursting flavors. 😋 • The key to making salads that keep you full and not eating an entire bag of chips after is to incorporate healthy fats such as avocado, 🥑 nuts🥜, and olives!! Taking the time to make meals like this not only tastes good but is so good to your gut and a healthy and happy gut equals a healthy and happy mind!!💕 • * #vegan #veganeats #recovery #edrecovery #anorexiarecovery #bingeeatingrecovery #bullimiarecovery #strongnotskinny #mentalhealth #mentalhealthjourney #fitness #healthylifestyle #health #fitnesslifestyle #motivation #edwarrior #eatingdisorderrecovery #selflove #selfacceptance #bodypositivity #vegandinner #mentalhealthadvocate #plantbased #wholefoods #cleaneating #balance
This one is SOOO true!!! I don’t know about you, but when I’m sore from exercising I immediately feel like I must look buff! 😂😂😂 “People who exercise usually report increased body satisfaction immediately following exercise. Those who work out generally report lower levels of body dissatisfaction compared with infrequent exercisers.”
It's been almost a year , a year ago when I realized I needed to actively change my lifestyle , I needed to get healthy for my children . It wasn't until January though that I decided enough was enough . Tired of complaining and getting nowhere . Focusing on bettering not just my body but my mental health , my soul . I'm not where I need to be , but I'm far from where I was . I'm not letting anyone or anything stop me now #weightlossjourney #mentalhealthjourney #betteringmyself #mindbodyandsoul #50lbsdown #selflove #loveyourcurves #tryingtobehealthy #notskinny #halfwaytomygoal #bbw #thisisembarassing #afterandbefore #ialmostcried #nohateplz

I wrote this in a journal back in the year 2011 February 25th, two days after I wrote this my cousin passed away at the age of 23 in a car accident. "I do not know how to describe how sad I am in detail exacty, but I will try. Imagine a single tree at the bottom of a hill in an open field that is abandoned never used for anything, there is some grass around the tree, no bushes can be found near it. This tree has gone through all of the seasons back and forth alone. In summer the breeze runs through the tree somewhat but not always. In the fall its leaves die quicker because it is tired and cannot bear to hold onto them any longer. In the winter its bark cracks a little more than usual because of how weak it is, it is almost lifeless. In the spring it tries to grow back its leaves, but it does so alone."
It takes courage to ask for help.⠀ .⠀ When I needed help learning about health and fitness I was scared to go back to school.⠀ I remember being in UIW feelings scared.⠀ This took courage to overcome. .⠀ When I knew I couldn’t keep dealing with anxiety and depression alone it took courage to reach out for help and start therapy.⠀ .⠀ I’ve also had to learn that it takes courage to ask for help as a mom. It literally takes a village to raise children. ⠀ .⠀ It took courage to ask for help with my business. It also takes courage to challenge my body physically during my workouts. ⠀ .⠀ Living a life different than others standing up for my values, beliefs and desire not to live based on popular ideals takes courage.⠀ .⠀ I know what it feels like to be scared but still take action and ask for help.⠀ .⠀ Fear shouldn’t keep you from living the life you desire and you truly believe in.⠀ .⠀ Let courage guide you to reach out for help. I know it can be intimidating but we’ve all asked for help at one point in our life’s. You’re use to being stuck. But you don’t have to be.⠀ .⠀ Just think of how amazing your life will start to shift if you just let courage take the wheel. ⠀ You’d have the mindset to create the body you crave and desire. Think of the amazing impact it would have on your marriage, kids and your overall life.⠀ .⠀ If you need help with your health goals I am here apply for 1:1 online coaching the link is in my bio. ⠀
Having a horrible boss Working for someone hateful and unsupportive can limit your career in real ways: You’re less likely to get the useful feedback, good projects, raises, promotions, and training and mentoring opportunities that you’d get with a good manager. That’s a serious opportunity cost.

Yesterday, my mind was going a mile a minute. I was overthinking everything. My brain felt like goo. Why? Because I was working my ass off so I could get shit done and get it done well. - Despite the fact that we feel exhausted when we put our all into everything, I’m starting to learn that people really do notice. When I put my head down and work hard, not only is that more satisfying for myself, but that other people appreciate my efforts more. When you present a finished project or say that something’s already been done without asking, this look of genuine gratitude comes across another person’s face. And that is the kind of life I want to keep living. - I learn more and more every single day about how I am actually making an impact on other people. I’m repeatedly committing myself to authenticity. And if I can just share my authentic self, my truth, and my love, then my hard work will never go unnoticed. - I’ve also discovered that it’s so important to have someone by your side who can keep you grounded, who can see the world through similar eyes, or who can at least understand your perspective. And it’s different people who will fill that role in different environments. Here in Chicago, it’s my girl Emma right here who has lead by example for me what it means to work because you care instead of running after praise. She’s also reminded me that you can’t forget to have a lot fun. If life is work, work, work, you’ll lose track of what it feels like to have fun. Recharging is important. Self-care is important. We aren’t super heroes. - Life isn’t about chasing thanks. It’s about doing things because you love to do them and, in turn, you will bring joy into other people’s lives.

There is no certain way we “should” look and another persons beauty does not take away from yours💫 . . Everywhere we go we’re told that we should be something else: It’s no wonder that our default way of thinking is to constantly self-evaluate. But why should one persons beauty ever take away from yours? Apple pie and chocolate cake are both deliciously different, right? So why aren’t lanky models, petite babes and curvy girls all uniquely beautiful as well? . . . You are so much more than your body and your purpose here is so much bigger than just being attractive. You have your own wonderful gifts to share with the world that nobody else can recreate, so take advantage of them and go out there and kill it🔥 . . . . . . #dontcompareyourself #beyourownbeautiful #mentalhealthisreal #mentalhealthstigma #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthblog #mentalillnesses #everybodydeserveslove #nowrongway #positivvibes #anxietymanagement #anxietyissues #anxietycoach #depressionsupport #depressionhelp #bdd #bodydysmorphia #selfcaresaturday
Here's some major belly love. 14 weeks, feeling and looking way more pregnant than I am. 😪 Not coping with this heat. Grumpy, tired and sore.

Anxiety relief is different for everyone, and our mood is often affected by what we see, hear, touch, smell and taste. Take a moment to focus on what you're perceiving, and potentially change the input. Your senses are powerful! . . #selfcaresaturday #senses #fivesenses #meditation #mindfulness #mentalhealthjourney
Oh hello, just posting an instagram-worthy breakfast so I have an excuse to remind you that self-love and self-care are NOT just one more thing for you to feel lesser than in. . 💫YOUR VALUE IS INHERENT AS A LIVING BEING.💫 As is your worth. You cannot change it. You will always be enough. And that includes if you’re really struggling to love yourself or care for yourself right now even though the words”self-love” and “self-care” are the buzzwords of the year. I want these things for you, I want to show you and remind you that it’s possible (because it was by others showing ME it was possible that I even began this journey). BUT. If I ever make you feel worse or less valuable, then I’m doing it wrong. If there’s one thing I want to normalize enough that it eventually gets rooted into your head, it’s to be gentle and non-judgmental toward yourself. EVEN when you’ve just judged or been mean to yourself (try to be gentle toward yourself about that). . And watch what follows when you notice and begin loosening and dropping all the ways you’ve been restricting yourself, even with things you thought were essential to be “good”. . Watch how much easier it gets to truly work on yourself when your value as a human being isn’t on the line. Watch how much easier it becomes to genuinely apologize for harm done to others when your pride isn’t on the line - not because you beat it down, but because it was really just trying to protect your perception of your own value, and it doesn’t need to anymore. Watch how the world unfurls and changes shape for you. There’s a lot of work that goes into this process - a lot of unlearning, a lot of messiness, a lot of lovingly working through pain and discomfort and unpacking all the beliefs and ways you’ve looked at the world before. I want you to know that it’s here for you. But/and, I also want you to know that if you aren’t there yet, it’s OKAY. It’s okay my friend. It changes nothing about your value or worth. . . Btw, I am always happy to message back and forth with you on this topic if you have questions or need someone to talk to or some support. Sometimes I’m quick to respond, sometimes I’m slow, but I’m always happy to❤️
Guyssssss I am LOVING this lift + HIIT program even more than I expected. It has surpassed my expectations and I love that it’s just 4 days a week. We work HARD on those 4 days though for sure! And then we get 3 days to rest/play with our kids/ run or do whatever we want! So this momma is about to take Luca on a 15 min jog because he loves it and it’s extra prayer / worship time for me! Check out some of these testimonies so far from the ladies in our faith and fitness group for this program: 👉🏽 “I was a little worried that I might find the routines boring, but the trainer has a great way of talking throughout the workout in a way that focuses and kind of distracts at the same time. I've never been a weight person, but these workouts seem to go by fast!” 👉🏽”Loving this program!! In 30ish minutes I am feeling I have worked out more than I used to after spending 2 hours at the gym!” 👉🏽”I’m so incredibly thankful that they came out with something I feel comfortable sticking with the schedule!”-a resident doctor friend! 👉🏽”SO thankful for a program that has enough flexibility that when I fall behind I don't feel pressured to quit. I love the grace it provides. I would never have felt motivated the day after a "miss" before because I would feel behind and lost. Now, I just know that was one of my built-in rest days!” • Does this sound like a program you may enjoy? I’d love I plug you in! There is always room for YOU!❤️
Mental health is just as important as physical health. I’m sick of people undermining and classing mental health conditions as ‘attention seeking’. It’s a very real problem and so many people struggle on a day to day basis. Everyone will experience some form of mental health no matter how little or small. So just stop, and be kind while there’s still time. Words can hurt and people don’t realise how much affect they can have. I’ve had my fair share of struggles when it comes to my mental health and I’m still battling through, but there are times when it’s so damn hard. There are good days and there are bad, and then some days where I don’t feel anything at all. So don’t sit there and tell me that a persons mental health isn’t important cause it damn well is 👊🏻 #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #selflove #selfloveclub #mentalhealthwarrior #bekindtoyourself #anxiety #depressionkills #loveyourskin #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthissues #mentalhealthstigma #mentalhealthjourney
✨We can definitely help ourselves by having a positive attitude... even if I’m not feeling positive, I will still speak something positive or read something positive and then eventually my attitude improves..✨ • • • • • #mentalhealth #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalillness #bipolar #bipolar2 #depression #anxiety #brave #selfcare #hereforyou #positivemindset #instagood #inspiration #strength #hope #faith #love #esthersjourney
Regrann from @halfway2hannah - We are so ashamed of our emotions and hate ourselves for feeling broken that it distracts us from finding the beauty in it’s chaos. It prevents us from building ourselves into the person we were meant to be.

We are SO excited to be presenting a talk & workshop at @stylistlive this year alongside some very inspiring people @fearnecotton @bryonygordon @nadiyajhussain @dfdubz @theguiltyfeminist. Head over to Stylist Live for tickets, it’d be great to see some of you there.
Am I allowed to do a #flashbackfriday to yesterday?! I think I am. Just go with it... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can I just say that this community is 110% the reason behind my success in my health and fitness journey? Women like @love_brittanypearl who are living this lifestyle right beside me, and cheering me on, and troubleshoot to improve both of our success. THAT is what has given me much of my success. Yes, I put in the hard work. Yes, I make healthy choices that sometimes feel like sacrifices. But all of it feels easier, because of the people the are standing beside me as I walk through this journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So if I could give you one tip for your own success in your health and fitness journey, it would be to find others to support you through it. Find people to walk the journey with. Find people who cheer you on with every step you take along this journey. Find them, support them, and keep them close. They. Are. Everything. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #findyourstrong #findyourtribe #andlovethemhard #fitnesstribe #fitnessgroup #fitfriends #fitfam #tbbfamily #tbbcoach #friendsareeverything #lovemyfriends #anxietyjourney #mentalhealthjourney #healthandwellness #wellnessjourney #happinessjourney

💜💜 WEGO ROOKIE OF THE YEAR NOMINEE 💜💜 — ( link to vote in bio ) • It took me a lot of courage to be very open on Facebook and other social media outlets about my struggles with chronic illness ( physical ) and especially mental illness ( more specifically panic disorder and Agoraphobia). People are very open about physical health typically. However, there is still a huge stigma about mental health. It took a lot but I decided that not speaking about it and hiding my struggles made me feel like I was hiding it because I deserved it, was ashamed of myself, etc. This only perpetuates the stereotype and stigmas. So, I created support groups, used social media, to try and share my journey with others as well as YouTube to do that as well. I’m trying to help other people like me or those who want to understand it know that they are NOT ALONE!! 💜 💜 I’m telling you all this because I was very shocked and surprised that I’ve been nominated for national award called WEGO Rookie of the year. @wegohealth The award is for a newer person that is shining light on an illness etc. that others may shy away from. I would really appreciate your endorsement which is basically a vote.

I’ve been depressed, suicidal, and chronically sick. At 23 I truly wondered if my purpose was simply, no longer needed. • I used to think all I’d live up to be was the labels placed on me growing up. • Overly sensitive. Gullible. Sickly. The weird one. Tainted in the eyes of men. Unworthy in women’s. • Some days I have to remind myself 1,000 times over again that not only am worthy of the life I now live. But I was MADE for it! • If you told that 23 year old me that in just 3 years I’d be leading healing circles and coaching women... well, honestly I probably would have cried under the weight of inadequacy. • That’s why I am so passionate about sharing my darkest days because of the light I now live! • My healing isn’t reserved for just me. It’s not something only certain people obtain. In fact, it’s already yours! • Your healing is waiting for you! Are you ready for it? • I am so thankful Spirit has entrusted me to guide you back home, to your true self. • It’s time to take the big step, to heal wholly. It’s time to awaken your Siren!

You may remember these legends from a discussion we recorded about eating disorders around a year ago. Tegan is doing heaps better now and this time we were actually recording some of Jade's breath work exercises. The exercises are traditionally used to train surfers and free divers but we believe some of these simple techniques could be very powerful remedies for ANXIETY and maybe even DEPRESSION! I will produce a full video of the whole experience as well as a shortened version just focusing on the potential mental health applications. If you're interested in learning about this don't hesitate to connect with Jade. She's very approachable and amazing at what she does! ❤🔥
If you’ve ever lifted heavy, squatted and thought yo butt wasn’t coming back up but you do... THIS is the excitement that follows. . . My goal of squatting 200lbs are still listed as a goal. Didn’t quite get there today and that’s JUSSSSSST FIIINEEE. 💪🏻👏🏻🙂 . . I did, however, set a new PR with 185lbs. And as matt says I went “ass to grass” with it. 😭😂🤣 . .

I find myself in a place so very similiar to no mans land right now. The more l tackle this C-PTSD head on, the more l realise l have no sense of "self". I have walked in the footsteps of others and the path they chose for me for so very long, that now those demons have been taken away l see a crossroads with various paths available all with different outcomes, and know not which way to turn. Finding "my identity",... that thing that makes me who Iam- an individual, is what my next steps are all about. "Who am I?"... "What do l want?" #identitycrisis #nomansland #walkingthepathofothers #goingsolo #findingmyownway #tacklingmydemons #insecurity #beingme #mentalhealthjourney #cptsd #anxiety #ocd xx

I may not look super happy in this picture but I assure you that I actually am. I’m just exhausted. I’m flaring as evident by the redness. But, I still took a bath and washed this long thick hair. I’m grateful that I was able to do both because honestly it’s like most of my spoons for the day. Washing and conditioning all this hair means quite a long time with my hands over my head and it gets extremely tiring. Puck sat on the rug and checked in on me. This was my “ just one thing “ accomplishment so far today.

We are so ashamed of our emotions and hate ourselves for feeling broken that it distracts us from finding the beauty in it’s chaos. It prevents us from building ourselves into the person we were meant to be.

Keep smiling!! Some days are harder than others but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel even if you don’t see it yet.

These #snapchatfilters give me life, lol. • • • The first step I've taken to recovery is by scheduling two appointments... One for counseling at my church, and one for my PCP to get a general physical and a referral to either a therapist or a psychiatrist. I've got to take over the reigns to my life, even if its daunting, or damn near impossible. It took me a long time to work myself up to seeking help, and honestly I probably would've taken a whole longer if it weren't for my best friend. I don't know, maybe I wouldn't even be here. • • • The point is, it's okay to seek help. There are some things we just simply can't do on our own, and that doesn't make us weak. I know seeking help is a vulnerable thing, but it takes courage, and you're strong. We are strong. Love yourself enough. • • • #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #selfcare #selflove #selfloveclub #suicideawareness #depression #anxiety #manicdepressive #seekhelp #loveyourself #bipolar2 #mentalhealthjourney #fuckingloveyourself #health #healthychoices #bodypositivity #bodypositive #curvygirl #therapy #loveyourcurves #ilovemyself #suicideprevention #thickthighssavelives #redhead #ginger #selfconfidence #thickgirl #plussizebeauty

Physical pain has the unmatchable ability to trigger our "DARKEST" emotions. And this is exactly WHY our body uses this form of communication to show us what's on our hearts that we are not paying 👉🏼ATTENTION👈🏼to. . The MOMENT that I created the possibility that it was ✨OK✨ for me to "feel like giving up" - my emotional body purged and I was immediately relieved without feeling a single moment of panic since. . We are so afraid to feel our deepest and darkest emotions for fear of acting on them… But what we don't realize is that we are absolutely more likely to act on them should we NOT pay attention to them in the first place. . Stop making yourself or someone you love wrong for feeling their feelings. In my book it is absolutely the worst form of abuse and invalidation that a human can suffer. . Learning to LOVE each and every human emotion (no matter how "wrong" society makes it) may be one of the most game-changing/soul-freeing endeavors you have ever taken on. . The best is yet to come for us. This - I KNOW. . #rachellynnsebastian #mentalhealthcoach #anxietyrelief
The struggle is real. I've never had such a trying time in my life. I might keep falling down and stalling my journey but at least I still want to get back up every time. I'm stronger than I think or give myself credit for. Physically and mentally. As I fight depression and suicidal thoughts, eating disorders and body dysmorphia, anxiety and intrusive thoughts, I will keep going. I might have bumps along the way but I'm determined to know what life will be like as I get closer to my goals. #weightlossjourney #weightlossgoals #depression #suicidalthought #anxiety #eatingdisorders #bodydysmorphia #intrusivethoughts #mentalillness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthjourney #strong #iamstrong #struggle
TLDR: Remember to be present and take it all of life while you can. A year ago, my sister passed away at only 31 years old. Trying to keep afloat during this nightmarish time wasn’t easy- especially because I already battle with depression. But listening to @iiswhoiis Rainbow album every morning became a sort of meditation for me. She reminded me to look for all the small things that are wonderful about life - the tasks that bring me joy, the people I love, the wonders of nature... you don’t know how long we have together in this world. Remember to be present and take it all in while you can. #keshaismyspiritanimal #handlettering #lettering #mentalhealth

A priestess is a woman who helps others connect to the divine so they can heal and actualize their soul’s unique path. • What kind of life would create if you knew you couldn’t fail? • I finally got so fed up with myself, with depression, with disease in my body that I was ready to change! • I’ll never forget the day that Spirit told me my purpose was women; to gather and to heal! • There is so much power in facing what we’ve been running from. By shinning light on those places we’ve been hiding, frees us from the death grip! When we come together and share what keeps us feeling isolated, we realize how connected we really are! • My heart is so full knowing I’ve stepped into my calling, knowing my healing isn’t just for me but it’s for you too! • I am so proud and excited to be apart of the divine feminine rising! The rise of these Sacred Sirens, offering their gifts to the world! • Because we need you, your gifts, and your purpose! 📸: @mermaid.ninaaa #shesesh #girltribepopup #recoveryisworthit #livingmybestlife #sacredsiren #healingthroughsharing #womenscircle #divinefeminine #risesisterrise #thependulumswings #undoingthedamage #betterdaysarecoming #depressionsucks #ptsdrecovery #endosistersunite #knowyourworthladies #ownyourmagic #speakyourtruth #femaleempowerment #mentalhealthjourney #endthestigma #yogaheals #diseasemanagement #creatingamovement #fightlikeawoman #healingispossible #mermaidmeditation
