I get sad a lot. A lot more than normal people do. It’s really hard to overcome the sadness sometimes and I feel like I’m stuck in it for weeks on end. It’s as if I’m stuck in honey and there’s no way to move or breathe. That’s how I feel now. I’m not sure if I’ll ever get out. .

True and false fears let us refrain, 
Let us love nobly, and live, and add again 
Years and years unto years, till we attain 
To write threescore: this is the second of our reign.

Whole. Healing daily. God’s Child. A mental health crusader. One hell of a mother. Worthy of true love, honor and respect. The best thing that happened to a good man. Capable. Able to do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me. A warrior. A great human. A best selling author. An angelic singer. A low-key comedian (per my close friends lol)....and the list goes on. I finally defined me and stop letting others do it. Will you?

Most (okay all) of the time my stress is caused by scenarios I make up in my mind. Scenarios which will likely never happen, yet somehow instill SO much fear in me, I find myself in moments like tonight, on the verge of a breakdown.. conveniently in a crowded subway. I constantly say to myself, “What must life be like as a rational thinker?” I may never be able to stop the irrational thoughts from entering my head, but I have learned if I can imagine fearful thoughts, I can also imagine positive ones. And yeah, it might take a lottt of convincing and some sassy self talks, but if you struggle with anxiety, the only person you’ll ever truly believe is yourself. So stop stressing yourself out, bitch.(@zero_fucksgirl)

Be mindful of the consequences of reacting without giving yourself a mental pause to recollect yourself feelings. NOT EVERY ACTION DESERVES A REACTION from you. Our emotions are meant to give us a clue of our internal temperature but are not meant to control our external actions. They can motivate us to become proactive to change what is no longer working but try not to fall victim to an angry response that you can’t take back or may lead to more conflict. Give yourself the space to feel your feelings and process by walking away, take a deep breath outside or away from the situation, go to the bathroom and sit for a few minutes alone, whatever you need to do but TAKE A PAUSE! When you come back to center take the appropriate action, respond according to the situation or sometimes recognize its ok to walk away and say nothing.

There is something about taking the road with risks that truly makes us feel alive. 
So why is it that so many crave certainty, and create false sense of security. 
We are held back by fear and limiting beliefs that are there to keep us safe. But today the safe route isn’t always the best route to follow.
The greatest things are always on the other side of fear. With the anticipation usually much worse than the actual action itself. 
Take the risk and see that after, you will still be secure. Prove to yourself that limits really only exist in your mind.💛✨

I actually had a beautiful experience while I was having my panic attacks on Monday (you heard about this in my stories). I called my local crisis line to talk it out, and as Loraine guided me through breathing she explained that sometimes panic sets off all of the nerves in our bodies like fireworks.
.
And that is EXACTLY what it felt like. I felt tingly from head to toe, like every single nerve in my body had been replaced by fireworks.
.
It was just the mindfuck that I needed to snap back to the art. What would it look like if I created my own firework show on the canvas? Maybe not literal fireworks, but something just as bright and exciting. Something that semi resembles what I felt during an attack.
.
Let’s take agony and turn it into fireworks.
.
I think my next collection will be coming from this idea. Fireworks. A celebration. A rebirth. A revival.

The more we talk about it, the more we save lives.

I hate not being able to sleep! Anxiety and mental health can affect you in so many different ways, for me, it's being awake most of the night, or going through phases of having terrible dreams. It always helps to talk though and I consider myself lucky to have people I can turn to. #insomnia #baddreams #anxiety #mentalhealth #letmesleep #mentalhealthmatters #talkaboutit

Can't express this enough. I am so confident in who I have become. I used to be an anxious mess that cared about everything. Once I opened up and realized that I can say/act how I feel, life became so much better. You should try it

The troubled in paradise. •○●•○●• I was leaning up against a low wall looking down at my phone. I turned around and saw this person. She was pale, white and motionless for a long while. It was a bit scary for a moment. I attempted to approach her to see if she conscious or what...? Then abruptly she started to move and mumble... In the end, she laid on her back, eyes closed and with an odd crooked smile on her face. I was simultaneously sad and grateful.

kintsugi is the japanese tradition of restoring broken objects with gold so the cracks are illuminated, rather than hidden. the belief is that the pottery is more beautiful for having been broken.
.
can i tell you how much i love this?!?! we have all been broken in our own ways, and that is not something to hide. when we see the experiences that crack us open as a way into growth and transformation, we can go through the process of healing and rebuilding (filling our cracks with gold) and come out even stronger and more beautiful than when we started.
.
i LOVE learning new words to describe things. seriously, language is SO COOL. i mean, come on. there’s a word that means “when we embrace what breaks us we become more beautiful”. just full-on all-about-it yes yes YES. what broke me eventually brought me here. to this path. to this lifestyle. to this mission. to this sense of strength. to this unwavering self-love. to these incredible friends. to this BEAUTY. and i am forevereverever grateful for all of it.

🌲❄️🌟 YIKES. I looked at the calendar and realized the holidays are coming quick. ⠀⠀ So I’ve been thinking about this a lot, with the holidays approaching. As a therapist, I know that the winter + holidays are known for increasing stress, lowering mood, reminders of trauma + loss, body + eating challenges, increased conflict and family dysfunction, and greater vulnerability to mental health issues you may already deal with. So while there can be bright and joyful parts of the holidays... ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
It can also be... a lot. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
So I have two things to offer you 🤲🏼
⠀⠀
1) this space, to acknowledge the difficulties +  chaos and offer rest and opportunity and connection ⠀⠀
Today, I invite you to share 1 thing you are looking forward to this season and 1 thing that tends to be difficult for you this time of year. I have a feeling we will feel a little less alone and a little more prepared. I’ll go first in the comments 👇🏼
⠀⠀
2) a wholeeeee blog post (via link in bio) with super practical tips and thoughts on how to manage during the holidays—both in adapting our self-care routines AND navigating complex family relationships. Let me know if anything strikes a chord or is helpful for you. ⚡️
⠀⠀
As always, we are in this together 🖤

I’ve cheated. I’ve lied. I’ve stolen. I’ve hurt people I care about. Does that make me unworthy and unloveable?😕 If I dig deep into these layers of shame and doubt and insecurity, is it possible to know myself as whole even with all my flaws and imperfections? Will I give myself permission to build a fabulous life despite of everything I’ve done in the past to crush myself?? ❤️ 📷 @visualbender

Sometimes we need to go easy on ourselves.
Sometimes we need to go easy on ourselves.
From chaos to calm in an instant. Do you have a positive anchor to bring you there?

It’s okay to stop and take a break. 
It’s okay to rest your heart. 
It’s okay to pause and take deep breaths. 
It’s okay to give yourself permission.
You’ve been fighting too hard. 
Rest for a minute, because it’s really okay.
💛
If you can pause and take a breather, what would you do?

#tbthursday to my very first #ichoosebeauty picture five years ago next week! As we celebrate the anniversary this month, I thought it would be fun to show you the photo that started it all. I took this pic on a walk during a work break in Columbus, Ohio. I remember thinking how hard it was going to be to find beauty on a dark and cold winter day, but then I challenged myself to find something. And there it was - a striking red bush contrasted with a blanket of pure white snow. That’s when I realized that there was beauty in every day if you choose to look for it. #ichoosebeauty Day 1821

Despite large misinformation the majority of medications are not addictive. They do often result in withdrawals but that’s not the same as addiction.

Recovery from trauma can be a complicated, long, and difficult process.  In truth, a traumatic experience is not always something that a person can get over, but there are ways to heal and work through a traumatic experience. On the blog today, I discuss 5 things needed for any trauma recovery. ⁣

The same you you eat right and exercise to take care of your physical bodies and the same way you take care of your teeth for proper dental hygiene. Therapy is a way for you to take care of your minds so you can feel better at all times.

We decide that we know what others think of us, even when they don't know us. We have looked into our futures and determined that we we will fail. We use mind reading to validate our fortunes. The truth is we are neither and good things can and will happen.⠀

This year is ending soon and you should give yourself permission to just get started on that goal that has been waiting for you.  I finally accomplished a goal this month that I had planned last year.  Yes, I was upset at myself for not sticking to my deadline, but I remind myself to be flexible with my process.

Took advantage of several opportunities to bring awareness to suicide today. And yes, it was my hat that initiated the conversation! 🤗 #1hat1mission #suicideawareness #SAFE-T #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #suicide #stigma #depressionawareness #therapists #socialworkers #behavioralhealth #phq-9 #phq9 #mentalillness #labelsareforclothes

I was on my period.
I was on my period.
This woman had her shit together. She knew what she wanted and had a life plan on how to get it. One goal was to be true to her authentic self.

She's a debt free globe trotter with a coffee addiction and food appreciation. She uncovers travel tips and has a diagnosis of inoperable Wanderlust.

This woman will have completed post grad studies within 12 months and has worked her ass off to pay off the first degree.

She was in the midst of decluttering, learning the difference of quality over quantity and enjoys her frugal findings.

This woman experienced the joy and privilege of celebrating the weddings of her closest anchors and was entrusted to be a first time bridesmaid in a few months.

She doesn't do relationships nor does she take fancy to one night stands. Marriage isn't anticipated though a future without children would be incomplete.

Living in one of the most expensive global cities this woman has never been in rent arrears. No easy feat in Sydney, Australia.

This woman has worked 11 years full time in casual roles. Her thumb count of cancellations strictly limited to amusing medical morphine anecdotes.

She aspires to work in the Crown Solicitors Office Child Protection Division and establish a photography business. Yes both.

In just a few weeks instead of having her shit together it would all go to shit. 
She broke.

It's taken her over 6 months to function and moving forward @elisabethlorn not all posts will be rainbow shitting unicorns. 
Love it, hate it or something inbetween it this woman is trying to discover an improved version of who that woman I was.

Dear Diary,
.
Why so blue? That big black dog finally caught up with you. Not just one but the whole damn pack and you're not quite sure how to find your way back. This isn't for pity, followers or responses of distaste but instead a hope that this darkness doesn't go to waste. "Such a tragedy!", "What happened?", "Why them?" and "Why now?" ... well to follow are my 13 reasons how.
.
This isn't to blame, get likes or to bore because statistically this is something you shouldn't ignore. In Australia suicide is deaths leading cause between those aged 15 to 44. So maybe the following may help you, or give a different perspective to someone you know, and hopefully help support others not to make the decision to go. @elisabethlorn .

Friendly Reminder: Awareness is one challenge, removing the stigma is another. Any direct, or indirect, negativity means you, yes you, are part of the problem. Stop. Think. Be part of the solution
