Reminiscing about windswept #positivelyglittered filled days.. cheering myself up with some #sparkle courtesy of my #glittery butt and the genius photography of @nocturne_images 💖
I've had a joyous last 24 hours with my lovely @rachelgoesrogue staying at a gorgeous arty hotel in the Valley and dancing and singing the night away to PMJ at The Tivoli last night. I had such a lovely time but sadly I also think I've depleted the last of my reserves.. the cold that has been threatening since Friday is now taking hold. Pray for me and my horrific looking tonsils 😫 Totally worth it, though. It was an amazing night!
Here's to a life filled with awesome experiences! I hope to one day entice my lovely to join me for a @positivelyglittered adventure too 💖 I think it's an experience every woman can gain something from.
Seriously. Besides the fact that I truly do love pizza and am very pro carb, I want you to know that it’s none of my business (or anyone else’s!) what you eat. No judgement here. Even if you are a client, I am not the food police and I will not judge you. There is already way too much guilt about food and bodies in our society. Let’s talk about more interesting things, ok? Like how you’re gonna love your best and happiest and healthiest life! #notthefoodpolice#nojudgementzone#dietitian#selflove#pizzalover#carblover
I wore a sleeveless dress after quite a while. Because I was conscious of my big arms and judged myself too hard.
Self love and body positive is never a smooth road. It is a process. And there are times when I do not feel positive at all. However I took a chance with this dress and to my surprise I loved it. I did not worry about my arms or how I looked because I was having a great time in the company of some of the best people I know.
But even then I would like to remind you as I did tell myself when I looked at the pictures that you are beautiful, amazing and perfect just like you are.
Please don't think of yourself any less even if someone tells you. You are not another person's opinion of you. You are perfect just like you are with all your imperfection.
To all the girls and guys, please don't belittle yourself or think you deserve less because of your physical features.
(@ask_dr_linq) Often when you've physically left a situation, but mentally have not, it becomes very difficult to move on though it's officially over.
Sometimes it takes some reflecting on the events that lead to the separation to bring you from a point of depression/anger to a point of rejuvenation/relief. You may be dwelling on what you wish could have happened, but once you accept what actually happened, you'll begin to heal.
They say the first step you take to recover from an addiction is admitting you have an addiction. First you must admit the wrongs that took place, accept what actually transpired and come to the conclusion of why it happened. Living in an alternate universe of what should have and could have happened just prolongs things. I have a Youtube video called, "Relationship Separation," that may help.
Life has balance, ups and downs. So remember, THIS isn't your final stage of life; you're not done writing your story until you say you are. Everyday you're alive, you're writing in your book of life whether you know it or not, whether you want to or not. #AskDrLinq

Read this to yourself! Own it!
We can always do more or less, or want more or less, but right now, in this moment, you are enough!
For those in my Instagram tribe that are on Facebook. I have created a group called ‘Creating Confidence with Bex Lipp’ and I would love if you joined me to try and boost our confidence together 🙏
Have you ever been so hard on someone as hard as you are to yourself? No? So, why do we do it? Why do we expect ourselves to be that person we want to be when everyone has their flaws? No one is ever the same, and everyone all have their own battles.
A year ago, I learned what happens when you forget about loving yourself first. They don’t lie when they tell you that self-love is important.
You tend to forget to value yourself and how amazing you are when you meet someone just as amazing.
This is why self care and self love is so vital to have when forming relationships with other people. You’ll know how to love yourself when no one else does. You only have yourself. In the end, it’s just you.
We should love ourselves how we want to be loved. We should be loved the way we deserve to be loved.
Monday mantra✨: I am comfortable with the person that I am. I love and respect myself. Even the parts that people don’t understand about me. I am safe and happy. Namaste 🙏 .
Thank you for the lovely pic to @positivelypresent 🙏💕
Our magic rests in our ability to not only shine our light but accept our shadow. Creation begins in the darkness and our most powerful gifts and teachers often rise from this place. With the Equinox energies in full swing aspects of ourselves are rising to be released and integrated. We can become overwhelmed by these energies if we go into resisting acknowledging these hidden aspects of self. Trust me those parts have so much power to offer you if you allow yourself to experience them.
What is your anger trying to tell you? What is your fear communicating to you? They are trying to help you in their own way. Are you willing to hear them out?
What what it look like if you feel in love with your anxiety, your hopelessness, your rage ❤️
Juniper berry - assist those that fear the dark. It supports you to have courage to live in the unexplored areas of self and own your power.
spikenard- surrender and acceptance. Taking your life back into your own hands and letting go of resistance
Turquoise and aqua aura - strength, power and courage xx
Facing the week like 😁!
Feeling mighty grateful that we are able to work from home when the weather starts to dip. Downside, heating is on longer and you have to stick to a structure so that you don’t find yourself back under the duvet then working into the wee hours to make up for it!
Working from home gang how do you maintain structure? I (Tamu) have had to create a school style timetable which includes time for day dreaming, researching my latest idea, reading and listening to podcasts/ audiobooks. I have to schedule it so I have treats to work towards because I get so distracted. This #iOS12 update has shown me EXACTLY how much my phone (social media/WhatsApp) features in my day 👀! My phone use this weekend has lessened and I’m committed to making that change starting with the mum in the mirror #RIPMJ (the stats are embarrassing)!
So here’s to a week or achieving MORE. More of what I’m not sure, but there WILL be MORE productive stuff and LESS scrolling and GIFing! OMG I’M ADDICTED TO GIFS!
Wishing you a productive week with reduced screen time!

To my rapist,
Here I am, saying my rapist, as if I own you. As if there aren't other women whom you have victimized. I refuse to take ownership of you any longer. You owned my body that night. But I will not let you own my thoughts any more. You are no longer MY rapist. You are a rapist. A rapist who attacked me on December 1, 2017. A rapist who I thought of as a friend. A rapist who I watched movies with. A rapist who I studied with. A rapist who I sat next to in class three times per week. A rapist you raped me not it of opportunity, but after contemplation. A rapist who lawyered up immediately because you have a lot to hide. A rapist who has used his harm to make it by his entire life. A rapist who is not going to get away with it.
I am not YOUR victim. You do not get that ownership over me. I am a victim. I am a victim of your depravity. You have to own that. I am a victim of your choices. You have to own that I am a victim of YOUR rage and lack of humanity. You have to own that.
Your victim no longer .
Freedom! My mantra for this week....I embrace my freedom. Freedom of expression, freedom as a woman. Freedom as a citizen of this world. We don't always realise how lucky we are just to walk this earth without confines. There are many who would give their back teeth for the freedom you have! Stay thankful. #expression#me#flow#freedom ....ps.... If you like this flow/sequence let me know! ... and I'll record it for the #youtube 🙏🙏
Three things I ask myself every morning:
What am I grateful for today?
What would my future self do today?
What do I want to have achieved to be aligned with my goals?
You determine your own destiny by creating daily routines.
On the edge of the bridge but we never jumping off, so you better know how many times SLEEP and eye have CROSSED SWORDS. My knowledge cuts deep like if your hands grip thorns eye adorn intellectual people. Open minded beautiful persistent positivity, make me radiate and produce extra fertility, sometimes i speculate and don't know why you're forgiving me, my sins weigh heavy but you have forgiven me
