I went into a cafe today to get coffee and there was a woman "dancing" around the cafe with a very similar body language and chorea to my mum. She was getting her coffee and bumping into everyone.. As she walked outside to leave, I overheard a woman say "look at her being a nuisance dancing around"
I didn't tip my coffee on this ladies head.. even though I momentarily felt like it ... But rather I just gave her a very stern look.
It made me sad to realise that even in 2018 we are still so uneducated about neurological illnesses... like Huntingtons Disease.. and others.. and people in general with a disability.
Yes they look "strange" ... Yes they dance around.. Its often not a very glamorous sight... and it might make you feel incredibly uncomfortable... as you enjoy the privalige of your body, health and mind.
But let's use our abilities to say hi and be kind... When I had babies I dreaded my mum visiting me in hospital because of what people would say and do. Perhaps that dread would have been less if we had a "safe" culture and community that understands and embraces neurological issues and all of its horror....as well as the beauty and courage that person still brings.
The change of your own mindset has one incredible power. If you really know how powerful one bad thought is you wouldn't want to think anything bad again. But yet we are so good in telling ourselves how bad we are, "we are not able to it", "we are not worthy to love", "We don't deserve that job" "I can't" "I'm to old" Etc etc. I know I have been struggling with that. And I still am sometimes! And it's so damn stupid. I mean shouldn't we all be kind to ourselves? Thinking only good thought? Saying we are great, we are beautiful, we deserve that person or we deserve to be happy or we are fucking awesome and able to do everything we dream of? And yet we don't. We wait for others to confirm us, so either we have great people around us that lifts us or we have people that confirm our stupid bad thoughts and that brings us even more down that deep darkness. We can't be that naive, we need to start with ourselves and our thoughts, because they are the most important ones. So today I ask you to tell yourself 3 kind things about you. I'm gonna start with. "I'm fabulous" "I'm inspiring" "I'm can do what ever I want to do, because I'm sure gonna make it".
You have to start with you and even if you don't believe in the words right now, continue because the brain and the subconscious will know the change. Be kind to you❤️ #bemindful#mindfulness#positivevibes#positivemind#positivemindset#positivelife#positivemood#positiveenergy#positiveattitude#positiveaffirmations#goodthoughts#innerpeace#iamwellandgood#healthymindset#youaremagic#positiveintentions#youarepowerful#powerofthemind

.....as women of a certain age ( 54,57) we know that having no filter allows us to speak our truth...sometimes we still feel the need to warn people😜 you too??

Psychological freedom is sometimes seen only in glimpses or flashes. Suddenly some life event or an insight empties our past emotional content, and anchors our mind into the present.
In such a state there is no movement of thought, yet there is an immense potential power to be experienced. Power, which is not control but, the realization that control is entirely unnecessary. A feeling that everything is just perfect. Not one thing out of its proper place.
Such glimpses may not last, because the mind cannot suspend its yearning too long in this world, which is driven by achievement and productivity. Eventually we are thrown back into the daily grind of struggles.
Yet, however brief these experiences may be, they show us how full of limitations our daily life is. The first step in understanding these limitations is becoming aware that they exist, and sometimes a flash of awareness does the trick.
Once our eyes have seen it, something in it permanently changes. It can never turn back. It has subconsciously begun its search for freedom.
Do you ever feel like God’s trying to tell you something?
I was running late for Clover’s piano lesson, and I couldn’t find her piano book anywhere. Clover was following me around saying, “Mommy, can you hug me?”
I said, “Clover, I can’t right now, we are running so late and I don’t have time... I have to find that piano book!”
But Clover kept following me around, asking for a hug. Finally I said, “Okay! We’ll just be late!” Then I kneeled down to hug her and her sweet little arms wrapped around my neck. Then I glanced across the room, and sure enough, her piano book was right in my line of vision. It was sitting under a couple of magazines on the coffee table. I literally laughed out loud and said, “Okay, God, I get it!!”
Was that just coincidence that I found what I was looking for in the middle of a hug? I don’t think so! Stress less, take time for the little things more, like hugs. I think that was the lesson He was trying to teach me. What about you? Did you need this message today? -Allie #neverpassupahugfromyourkids
I hear this word being thrown around left, right and centre. “I came home and he hadn’t washed up, this made me so anxious!’, “I can’t find a dress for tonight’s party, I’m getting anxiety”, “Stop fiddling with your hair, you’re giving me anxiety!”. So, what does it actually mean? Anxiety is a mental illness, it’s a feeling which can overwhelm it’s host, a feeling of worry, nervousness or unease about something with an uncertain outcome. It’s really challenging to live with and when people throw this term around willy-nilly it really does take it away from those who truly have to deal with this on a day to day basis. Please be mindful ladies and gents, don’t confuse mere nerves with anxiety. Don’t get me wrong, everyone at some point in life will suffer from anxiety, anxiety in itself is a normal experience, but not all anxiety is a mental illness - there is a difference. Abnormal anxiety is when it takes over person’s day to day life. Anxiety is a mental illness, only because you can’t see it (even though it does have physical symptoms) doesn’t mean it’s not there and throwing this term around without thought is a slap in the face to those who are truly suffering 💕
Guys, what are you thoughts? I’d love to hear them.
During this season of giving we give so much to others that we often forget or put off taking care of ourselves in the process.
Whether you’re in a season of joyful giving or a season of giving grace, love and comfort in difficult circumstances, the truth of the matter is, you can’t serve + give from an empty cup.
A lot of us put ourselves on the back burner this time of year, for whatever reason that is for you. We put off our own well being and think when January arrives we’ll take care of ourselves again. We think of January 1 as some magical day which will grant us more time and motivation to do the things we’ve put off because life has been too “busy”.
This year, let’s choose to give and serve others just like we always have but let’s be sure to fill our cup too. Because, when we love ourselves better, we love others better too.
Whatever season you’re in, there is a place for you in my virtual fit crew. 👭 Come be a part of our COMMUNITY where we uplift each other and make taking care of ourselves a priority during this season.
It won’t take lots of TIME out of your day, but I promise you the 30 minutes you set aside to sweat during this busy time of year may just turn you into the jolliest version of yourself during a holiday season yet! 🎅
We all have hard seasons and seasons we can’t control, but what you do have control over is how you TAKE CARE of YOU. ♥️ Give yourself a 🎁 this season, invest in a healthier, happier you.

Be mindful of the things you are not paying attention to. The people in your life needs your absolute & undivided attention. If they mean a lot to you - tell them & show them. If you don’t, then one day you will sadly realize that they are not there anymore because they felt unwanted, unappreciated and unloved. Remember when we allow certain doors to be closed, then we don’t deserve for them to be reopened. Think 🤔 about it.

When was the last time you unplugged?
That’s what did this past week. I didn’t really plan on it, it just kind of happened. I needed to focus and be present with myself and the ones I love. No social media. No endlessly watching stories. Not a care in the world with what’s going on with everyone else. Just living and appreciating life and the things I love. ⠀⠀
“When despair for the world grows in me⠀
and I wake in the night at the least sound⠀
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,⠀
I go and lie down where the wood drake⠀
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.⠀
I come into the peace of wild things⠀
who do not tax their lives with forethought⠀
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.⠀
And I feel above me the day-blind stars⠀
waiting with their light. For a time⠀
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.”⠀
The Peace of Wild Things by Wendell Berry (b. 1934) American poet, novelist, and environmental activist⠀
Around the time when I was drinking —> now when I don’t. My physical appearance alone bothered me. My skin was not nearly as nice as it is now and I felt sluggish all of the time. The emotional aspect of it all was even worse! I always felt so useless and and gross after drinking. I’d get nothing done and only serve myself and I was rarely interested in what others were doing. My life is entirely different now. Worrying about others needs before my own and always making sure I am healthy and happy! Calm and content is life’s true pleasure. I’m so grateful to be where I am today! ❤️

Deep breathing relieves stress & anxiety due to its physiological effect on the nervous system. It helps to #justbreathe when you’re in a stretch or about to lift something heavy. Breathing slowly & mindfully activates our hypothalamus, which is connected to the pituitary gland in the brain. Breathe deep & we send out neurohormones that inhibit stress-producing hormones that trigger a relaxation response in our body. The hypothalamus links our nervous system to the endocrine system, which secretes the hormones that regulate all activities throughout our body. Whenever you start feeling your body get stressed, #bemindful & #breathedeep you can control your body’s response to #stress through your #mind . At @fitops_foundation the topic of #breath often came up when @gabe_snow @angelo_grinceri & @kylefkrupa talked to us about really helping our clients take their performance to the next level when we are #personaltraining them. This week it’s my mantra for just about everything. I hope 🤞 it is yours too! Have a wonderful week getting ready for giving thanks on #thanksgiving . #breatheinbreatheout#tonglen#bodytransformation#mindoverbody#reducestress#balancedlife#activerecovery#legday
