Sunny days wouldn't be special, if it wasn't for rain
Joy wouldn't feel so good, if it wasn't for pain
Death gotta be easy, 'cause life is hard
It'll leave you physically, mentally, and emotionally scarred🎶❤️ #livingmybestlife#choosetobekind
Once I set my mind on doing something, no matter what it takes to get it done - I do. I’m all in
How you do anything is how you do everything - explore, live, dream, work 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼 #geronimo
🤯 What’s Your Worth? 💙
The girl on the right was sick. She was thin. She was working two jobs, both she hated. She was partying or going out almost every night, and the nights she didn’t, she was up until 3:00+ Knowing she’d have to be up soon. She was a full-time uni student, frustrated by the things she wasn’t learning. She was being mentally abused by a family member. She masked pain, physical and mental, with alcohol (as she was in that photo). And she would binge eat, or not eat at all.
The girl on the left still battles depression. She had to work like hell and grit her teeth to be in the career position she’s in, but she’s now valued and her opinion is too. She eats, maybe too much. She drinks to take the edge off, but she doesn’t use it to mask her emotions and it’s on a rare occasion. She trains 4–6 days a week. She vents her frustration in a safe way. She smiles often. She’s not as happy as she knows she can be, but she knows she’ll get there.
Both are me. On the right, I was suffering from what the doctors told me was adrenal fatigue and from immense stress. I was in A LOT of pain. My fingers and toes spent several days curled beyond my control. My muscles were on fire. I had spent the night throwing up. My mind was in a bad place. I was smiling because I was being numbed by a toxic mix of medication and alcohol. But no one knew a thing.
What I’m saying is, things will get dark from time to time. And when it’s dark, you feel like no matter how fast you run, scream or tear at the walls, nothing will get you out. But it does get better if you work at it. There were ups and down after this photo, technically, my weight is still a down, but it’s all a learning process. If I could go back, I wouldn’t change a thing because I wouldn’t be as strong or know what I do now if I did.

Moving to Greece just for the breakfast buffet 🙌🏻.
.Killer breakfast spread with fresh veggies, breads, pastries, meats, cheeses, DIY greek yogurt parfaits, spreads, fruits, etc. etc. etc. Filled my plate up with the works~ olive tapenade, sun dried tomatoes, arugula salad, smoked salmon, all topped off with fresh parsley, capers, and a perfect drizzle of EVOO. Treated myself to a piece of perfectly toasted seed and nut bread with homemade greek nutella and honey. 🙃 Can’t tell you how eating fresh, clean, organic and guilt free this trip has done wonders on my stomach and energy✨
