Also my trainer saw this photo and immediately said “Omg so cute as a hunter!! You know what’s next in your chapter right?” 😅 #GoodEnoughAPHA
"Am I still not good enough?
Am I still not worth that much?
I'm sorry for the way my life turned out
Sorry for the smile I'm wearing now
Guess I'm still not good enough" #littlemix#goodenough#salute#whatislife

Are we surrounded by narcissist people? Yes, I know this might be some controversial, but I wanted to share this with you. “The narcissism epidemic” author argues that the incidence of the “me me me” culture promoted by social media and the lifestyles we live in, have shown that there is a decline in social connection and positive emotions, leading to anger and anti-social behaviours. ⠀
While we all might be tempted to go find a cure for “the narcissist” inside or close to us, what I believe is that the most important part is trying to understand the reasons of this behavior. We all want to be loved, noticed or appreciated. We don't want to be ordinary (ughh) and, when we do things that differentiate us from others, we may think that we are lovable, that we belong or because they have a sense of purpose. We tend to believe that what we DO and not what we ARE is what it matters. For example, I’m good only if have enough Facebook/Instagram likes, right? We look to be famous, we are seeking admiration because it is the balm to soothe our inadequacy of not being ______ never enough. We spend our days complaining about why we didn’t get enough sleep, money, attention, love, success. We are focused on what is lacking us and not about what we already have or are. We are always comparing to others, getting frustrated about those visions of success and perfection. This is the culture of scarcity. Don't look for perfection. Dare to be who you are and do not compare to others. Everybody is perfect in its imperfection. Just dare! I suggest you to use the "Motivate" Blend. Would you like to have yours? Let me know, I will be happy to help you get at the best price!⠀
Happy Wednesday everyone !
Sorry I have been so MIA lately, sometimes I just need a little break from life . Hahah
Like I have said before I have suffered from some mental healthy issues that I have had all my life, and sometimes life just gets to be a little too much.
In times like that, I like to take a step back and look at the bigger pictures of everything.
I love to read self help books, so if you have any suggestions feel free to comment below and let me know ❤️❤️ I have been taking complete lately and I am so excited to see the results and I have noticed that my mood is improving !!! Aly saves you $$$ - christmas is coming !
I painted Embra!
Used #krita to make this #digitalart of my #dnd character. I'm a beginner to digital art, and I'm still learning, but I had to make myself stop working on this one. I'm sure it could be better, but oh well. #goodenough
I use to never buy myself new clothes!
I grew up in a “practical family “ Buying clothes happened at school time or Christmas.
I never bought something just because I wanted to; if I did I hated how it looked on me/fit right/peer pressure buy. Anyone do this to?
I felt sad, not good enough, was “mean girl “ hard on myself & compared myself to all the other girls.
What changed? I got that I was worth it, stopped listening to the mean girl, & comparing myself. I am confident in what looks damm good on me now.
I started journaling those “mean girl “ thoughts, comparison, & all the bs my ego was telling me. None of it was true.
Are you ready to get out of your head? Stop comparing yourself to your friends on Instagram? Be confident & not give a fuck what others say?
I am going to show you how to not compare yourself, not care what others say, or not afraid about getting it wrong. Be confident in you are Worth it!

I think the hardest thing about being a size you’re not happy with is finding not only clothes that fit but look good. This dress I brought recently for a wedding next month and it took about 7/8 dress attempts to find something that covered me in the right areas but also looked elegant. It took me back to an old memory of trying on dresses for my last school formal, I hated my body so much that no dress looked good enough because I didn’t feel good enough, so I had a cry in the changing room alone and decided not to go. I can’t be that girl anymore. Of course I still find things to judge because I’m not where I want to be but I love this dress on me and I’m not going to miss out on anymore life experiences because I don’t feel good enough. It’s up to me to improve my body and mind and to stop judging myself so harshly and to remember that no matter what size, I am good enough. The only thing I should be concerned about is the tragedy of selling this dress in a couple of months when it’ll be too big for me! #loveyourself#dress#goodenough#goodvibes#keepgoing#love#pretty#flowers#beautiful#wow#happy#healthymummy#newdress#losingweight#curves#bodyimage#confidence#pink#shoes#dressingup#weightlosstransformation#acceptance#weightlossjourney
🎶 what's good enough for you, is good enough for me, it's good enough, it's good enough for me, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah🎶
My truth- I was totally writing this super serious heartfelt post on being good enough when one of my favorite movies theme songs by Cyndi Lauper popped into my head. But the lyrics fit me and this post a bit more.. Truth is, I often feel like I am not good enough in all areas of my life. Sometimes I dwell and sulk in the fact that someone out there may not find me good enough to complete this job, be part of this team or be apart of their life. It took me years to figure out that my not being good enough for THEM was the best blessing that I could ever have. Other people's opinions or feelings on you shouldn't hold you back from being GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU. At the end of the day if you can say that you filled your day with good enough for you, that is all that matters. If you can truly admit to doing your job as good as you can, being the best parent YOU can be, loving that person as much as YOU can love them.. then you truly have been GOOD ENOUGH! And what's good enough for you, is good enough for me.. yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah! So I challenge you to go be GOOD ENOUGH today and everyday that you can! Sending you love, light, strength, and good enough vibes to keep you moving forward today!
It’s December 12th... So Christmas is really getting close.
Over in my Masterclass, we talked about how December can be the season of compare and despair.
Influencers often will make you believe your own mundane life doesn’t add up to their curated magazine lifestyle.
Don’t let this steal your joy.
It’s a good time to be still and think what truly means joy.
Maybe wearing a red sweater is festive enough.
It’s ok if you don’t put up a wreath.
It’s ok if you don’t have a party to go to.
It’s ok if you aren’t buying gifts.
Your value isn’t in what you spend.
Instead of gripping to the idea that it has to be bigger and better, soften your expectations.
Less is more.
Perfect’s price tag is exhaustion.
There will ALWAYS be someone doing it bigger, having more, looking perfect.
If you don’t have money for gifts : give your time. The best gift is the gift of an experience. And to be in the company of people who see you. Who make you feel like you matter.
I see you. You matter.
My sweater reminds me of Campbell’s tomato soup. That somehow made me laugh inside today.
Don’t ever doubt yourself. For me, it took a very long time to be able to stop comparing myself to everyone else in a room. •
Especially when I was struggling a lot with depression, I used to think how could anyone love me when there are so many other better people out there? People without depression, people who were prettier and thinner than me, people who had longer hair than me, people who are more confident...the list went on.
After years of beating myself up and carrying around so much self-hate I realised what a complete waste of energy it was to constantly worry and compare myself to other people. It was causing more harm and my mind was such a negative place.
Everyone is on their own internal journey and many are battling issues no one knows about. Focus on your own journey and your own self development as you are living your life for YOU and no one else and nothing about you physically needs to change. •
Know that you are good enough for anyone and you can do ANYTHING you want to do. 🦋💫🌈⭐️💜
My gorgeous 4 year old daughter just asked me if we could have a baby. A new baby brother or sister (when we move to our new house, of course, not right now).
It's the first time she's really expressed anything like this. But it made me think. .
Birth trauma; postpartum depression; pelvic floor, postnatal sex, relationship and identity issues were all part of the reason that I haven't even got close to considering another child until a year or so ago.
With lots of women, including close friends, choosing to go the 2 under 2 route, there are countless questions from people asking when I'm going to have another.
So I'm just here to say, that that decision is yours and yours alone. Not to feel guilty over. Not to feel pressured by. Whether you're one and done or up for a while troop. Ignore them and do what's right for you. .
And if you also don't know whether to have another, know you're not alone. You've got this.
UNCONDITIONAL SELF ACCEPTANCE "Self-acceptance is my refusal to be in an adversarial relationship with myself.” ~Nathaniel Branden
Self-acceptance involves embracing a ALL facets of ourselves-- the many truths. As such, self-acceptance is unconditional, free of any qualification. It includes an authentic acceptance of your attributes, skills, weaknesses, limitations, and foibles. Accepting youself unconditionally evolves from affirming, supportive and emotion coaching parenting oriented towards unconditional positive regard. If your childhood was not nurturing in these ways, it is important to learn to "certify" yourself, to validate your good enoughness.
One way to explore if you are conditionally or unconditionally accepting of yourself is to look at your expectations and attitudes.
Do you only cheer yourself on when you feel positive and/or accomplish external goals?
Are you “allowed” to have an off day or an unproductive week without lapsing into self-judgment and self-loathing?
Do you stand up for yourself when others discourage you?
Do you give yourself the benefit of the doubt in difficult or confusing times?
Do you acknowledge your effort, determination, perserverance, empathy?
Answering these questions will reveal if you accept yourself only conditionally. Conditional acceptance means you only love yourself when you’re performing well. Psychological counselling can be helpful if you struggle with self acceptance.
