Everyone is all about telling people with anxiety, PTSD or depression to speak out and get help or talk to people... until they actually try to. Then where is everyone?
I understand everyone has their own personal issues, jobs, families and lives. And I'm definitely not one to tell you to drop everything you're doing every time someone needs a moment of your time, but lets take a second to do some quick math... Most people spend, on a collective average, 2-3 hours on their phone a day. If you're telling me you are unable to spare 30 minutes during your allotted 3 hour cell phone time in a normal 14 hour day for a simple text conversation, then Y O U are part of the problem.
The typical person works, on a collective average of, 5 days a week out of possible 7 for roughly 9 hours a day. If you're telling me that you can't find a few moments between your lunchbreaks, drive home, morning coffee, weekend, nap times, call of duty, going out to eat, or watching netflix to get back to someone trying to communicate with you or see you, then Y O U are part of the problem.
Stop being so self absorbed and L I S T E N to those around you and closest to you.
Everyone always says "if only they would have reached out to me, I would have said something". But would you really?
Or would you brush it off as just another notification?
Who is that person in your life who lifts you up? Tag them and let them know you are grateful for having them in your life 🌸💕🌸
Whats crazy is her smile changed. It changed from a whole lot of growth from daily devotions, my online virtual sisterhood, amazing fit tribe & her at home fitness journey.🙌🏼
I used to be one of those people that thought it wasn’t possible to have a fitness journey from home. I always thought it was impossible to get results without stepping into a gym.
I also was that person who laughed at the shake thing and laughed at an “online community” because let’s be real. You can’t trust anyone but yourself. But I was so WRONG.🤷🏼♀️ .
Let me be the face of a girl who had no belief in herself, no belief in “trusting the process” like told to do so when working out in my groups. Because MAN OH MAN, I was so wrong about everything and if I had to back track to a year ago and invest in myself again. I would in a heart beat. 💕
Need a little guidance? Let me help you.
Need a little tough love? Get off your butt and join my next challenge.
Need a little I told you so? I wasted so many years being unhappy about the way I looked and in sadness. Don’t be like the old me.🤦🏼♀️ #flashbackfriday
Life is about living with a smile everyday, even if the days are getting worse and worse. #youarestrong
remember, stretching is a mental challenge as well. it teaches you discipline and that you are stronger than what your mind may be telling you. you may find yourself thinking “I cannot hold it any longer” or “I am not able to go deeper in this stretch,” but YOU as your soul being are much stronger than that pesky little mind that likes to tell you otherwise. just keep breathing 💕 and know that with practice and patience and perseverance will come results! love yourself and completely absorb yourself in what you are doing, and it will not annoy you or hurt you, but bring you that sense of wholeness while allowing yourself to feel proud. let the sun shine down upon you and be thankful you have a body that is capable of moving and stretching; that is malleable and in constant change. you have the power to always keep growing in your practice. try this stretch pictured above—it feels really good! happy stretching!

The thing about oils is... If you believe in them, they work & if you don’t believe in them, they still work. 🙌🏼💛
I have to be honest - This week has been a little crazy to say the least. My first week back to work and I’m working 13 hour days, every day. It’s safe to say that the rest of my life has been put on hold this week - Including my oils. 😭😭 I know, forgive me. .
Last night, I said “that’s enough” and did my whole oily nighttime routine - Including my Feelings Kit protocol to help release some difficult emotions. And also my Rutuvala Roller which I like to call, “death without the commitment”.🤣
I slept through the night in who knows how long and have had THE BEST DAY today. I feel the lightest I’ve felt in months. And definitely the most energetic I’ve felt all week. .
I’ve been using these beautiful little bottle of magic for a year now - And a success like this still blows my mind. Let’s just say - I won’t be skipping my night time routine anymore. Back on the oily track, for this girl!
What do you guys do when you’re feeling heavy & run down? .

Walk into the weekend with some #wlswisdom
from Angela Taylor, LCSW aka @onlybutalwaysyourbest
! Let love and kindness be alive always in your thoughts and actions – no matter the size of your thigh. Ease up on judgments and stop comparing. You can have an opinion about your thigh (“This thigh is softer than I would like.”), but stop attaching cruel judgments to it. This is the key to positive #bodyimage
- The ability to love EVERY stage of your growth and development. Don’t wait to love your body until it reaches some ideal you have imagined or until you feel others perceive it as acceptable and beautiful. Work out. Eat in a way that supports your life and health. Set goals and change and grow. But, also – and MOST importantly – love your body and yourself at every stage. #loveyourself #loveyourbody

Have you ever thought about that? You being your own hero. That we too have superpowers? Maybe they’re not those cool life-saving-danger-sensing-flying-from-building-to-building kind, but it’s something we actually have in reality. Something to save us on the daily... ourselves. Us. We. You. Me. Ourselves. We are capable of getting through anything and everything life throws at us. It’s just a matter of cracking down and pushing through, whether if that’s with having a switch in your mindset, staying positive through a tough situation, changing your outlook or perspective on a challenge in your life, whatever it can be... know that it is you getting yourself through. You are being your own superhero. You are stronger than you know. 💪🏼 Take it to heart, because YOU HAVE that strength.

Today is National Moon Day 🌕 Where the sun acts, the moon reacts, and that is why it has been said to represent our responses and deepest personal needs.

Do you feel like quitting today? Do you want to give up?
So let me ask another question: why did you start in the first place?
The answer to the last question should pump in your head whenever you want to quit this journey.
You are doing this for some reasons and I know that one of them is because you realized that you deserve better and you are strong enough to discover the strong man or woman inside you who wants to show the world his/her magnitude.
Think about the reasons you want to give up. Are they big enough to stop yourself from your road to happiness? Wich choice would make you feel proud of yourself tomorrow?
I know it's hard, but it all comes from your mindset. When you will realize that that craving or tiredness it's just on your head, you will find the strenght to always push your limits. And you will be proud of that.
If food is your enemy in this journey, never forget that a cake can maybe give you 5 minutes of happiness and so much more time of dissapoiting. But an well-done workout is something that you will just simply never regret.
So why won't you rezist and work for your long-term health and happiness?! I am here to encourage you in this! I know you can! Now you gotta know it yourself and we're almost done.
“True happiness arises, in the first place, from the enjoyment of one’s self.” ⭐️| Joseph Addison.
Hey you! Happy Friday!!! Just a reminder: you can do it. Whatever it is. You can. I promise.
Don't feel guilty for a little self love. 💕💗❤️
Flex for the next generation! We've got to be a good example to our kiddos. Let's teach our kids how to love a healthy lifestyle. They'll thank us later.
I always hesitate sharing things like this on social media. But - I remember several times, over the last few years, where posts like this have helped me. Honest, raw posts, that made me realise that I wasnt alone on the battlefield. This post isnt for sympathy. This post isnt to worry people or make people concerned. I know that my friends and family care, I do. Feel free to show your support and comment with a 💚. This post is for those who are struggling. Those who are running low on ammo. This post is strength. This post is a weapon.
Today is a struggle. Today is hard. Today is difficult and emotional. Today is numb. Today is temporary. Today I fight. Tomorrow, today is over.
Some days are harder than others, without reason. Some days my mind tells me that I'll never be happy, that I'll always be alone. Sometimes it tells me I'll only be happy once i achieve the unattainable. My mind lies. My mind will twist and bend reality and try to use it against me. Sometimes I'm stronger and I can find an anchor. Other times its not so easy and the whole day becomes a battle with my inner demons.
No matter how hard it gets. No matter how lonely or dark it may seem. Do not give up. Fight! Fight for everything you do have. Remember what you have. Remember who YOU really are. You are NOT defined by your demons. You ARE strong. You are POWERFUL. Fight.
Tomorrow, today is over.

The truth is - you CAN move mountains.
The truth is - you CAN be your authentic self always.
The truth is - you CAN do absolutely anything you dream of.
The reality is you keep standing in your own way! That ego voice in your head is screaming at you that you'll never do this or that.
The reality is YOU are the one who can SHIFT that voice to be one of loving supportive thoughts.
YOU ARE CAPABLE of anything you put your mind to.
Commit to yourself. Set daily aligned actions.
MOVE THAT MOUNTAIN!
