Quanto mais leveza conseguimos trazer para as nossas vidas, menos impactamos a nossa saúde mental e física. Todo e qualquer stress pode ser altamente nocivo para nossa resistência imunológica(proteção). Fique atento a forma como está levando a vida. 🙏🏼 De nada adianta alcançar grandiosas metas profissionais e financeiras, se isso te exige energia vital além do real necessário. A conta não fecha numa determinada época da sua vida, pode ter certeza. Quanto mais leveza nos dias, mais amor é vivenciado e compartilhado com saúde e alegria. 🙏🏼💛🙏🏼#vivabem#vivaleve#selfrecovery#yoga#lifestyle#autoconhecimento#autoestima#autoresponsabilidade #
I wasn’t always into fitness and health. Here’s a picture of me from high school where I began down a path that wasn’t healthy. Quite honestly I never took proper care of myself until I started this journey in my twenties.
Before, I turned to eating until I dug deep to find what were my triggers? Why did I binge eat and then make myself sick?
I was going through personal problems that heightened this behavior so I turned to personal development books. I learned about myself, what I needed to work on, and how to let go of the pain and anger I was feeling.
So I started with small steps.
When I craved food or a drink, I’d put on my workout clothes and sweat off my feelings. It felt so empowering and I was learning to love myself and to have respect for myself and body.
It took years to get to this point. It took time to accept things and to decide to make a change.
So here and in real life, I’m seen as always being positive and smiling. But the reality is that like everyone else I’m not always happy. However, I know where I’ve been and I’m beyond grateful for where I am today. I still have that inner voice telling me negative things but I’ve learned how to cope. I’ve learned how to be strong and to push through it.
So remember to be kind to yourself. Remember that the journey won’t ALWAYS be easy and most importantly that you aren’t alone!
If you’re ever struggling with anything know that I’m here to help in any way or to just listen. You don’t have to suffer in silence. I wish I realized that years ago.
So today think of your strengths. Think of how you’re making changes to become the best version of you. Even if things are rocky right now, you’re still waking up and conquering the day. Dont forget that.
“Forgive yourself. Release the need to replay a negative situation over and over again. Don’t become a hostage of your past by always reviewing and reliving your mistakes. Don’t remind yourself what could have, should have, or would have been. Release it and let it go. Move on.”
Sometimes what you need to really move on from something is to be a peace. Be at peace with yourself. Remind yourself that you are doing the best you can. And if not, what’s stopping you from doing that?
Looking back at this photo, there was so much about that time in my life that defines who I am today. A lot that I admire and no longer have, like my energy and carefree spirit. Along with that, there are things I have now that I didn’t have before; like confidence and responsibilities.
Sometimes life throws situations that break you, but get back up! Breathe and give it a Stone Cold Stunner!! I’m doing that now with my life, and if you are too, know that you are not alone and you are enough! #inspire#breathethroughit#selfreflection#selfrecovery#staystrong#itsallabouttheheart#love
the fact that I actually am beginning to feel genuine love towards myself and confidence within me, Im able to truly express my gratitude and outstanding love for the people around me and living my life properly is honestly a feeling I never thought I'd feel again and honestly, my soul beams with joy and appreciation that I've finally got to this stage in life. #selfrecovery
Honestly, I am thriving right now.🤩 I am doing great. I am happier than I ever have been and so, so, so damn proud of myself. I’ve overcome many obstacles on my road to recovery, and it was by no means easy.😌 But from the very second I started, I knew I was going to do it. I knew I was going to finish the battle on top, whether I was smiling or crying, I knew in my heart that I was going to make myself better.🌿 Determination is the only thing that got me to where I am today. The will to fight. The will to get better. The will to win. And in this moment, I can say that I have won.😊 I can proudly say that I am recovered, and that I am no longer influenced by any eating disorder. .
Yes, the voices will probably still be in the back of my mind on bad days, but I will not listen.🙉 And you don’t have to either. It won’t be easy. Nothing worth doing is going to be easy. It will be worth it, though.💯 Recover to make yourself better. Recover to make yourself happier. Recover to make yourself you again. I believe in you.💓
Recovery is a choice, choose life.🌞
#SoCalAl a wonderfully uplifting and socially relaxing strain of #consciouscannabis and one of #verdesfinest . You can trace this strains muscle relaxing, euphoric, and positive mood stimulating effects back to its terpene and cannabinoid profile.

After experiencing abuse for so long, my body confidence and self esteem was pretty low. .
For years I'd had my ex tell me that no-one would want me, that I was fat, old, used up, worn out, not pretty and that I was lucky to have him because without him I would grown old and die alone.
Healing this broken bit of myself is what I'm working on now and have been working on for the last year. The damage abuse does to your confidence is brutal and long lasting. Often this part of the abuse is so damaging because you also need to heal unresolved issues from your past, ones that you hadn't even identified, and healing this part of yourself takes time.
There are a few things I did to help me feel better about myself. I did some online dating and although this is a minefield in its own right, it did prove to me that other men would want me, that I was attractive and if I choose I would not die alone. It helped me see that my ex lied and if he lied about this, what else did he lie about!
I attended a @katie.piper_ talk. Listening to her and seeing how far she has come after being attacked and raped, really showed me that there is life after abuse, you can heal and be happy.
I did a bouduoir photoshoot, this really pushed me outside my comfort zone but it helped me see myself in a way I never had before. The photographer @thewayyouare also had a gallery show, I was was one of the models featured. To see my photos displayed on a wall was an amazing experience and it really helped boost my confidence.
I follow body positive people on IG, I fill up my feed with things that encourange, make me feel positive and better about myself, people who I can learn from. If it makes me feel bad, then I unfollow.
I also became a #BeRealAmbassasor , helping to promote body confidence. .
Some of what I have done might be unconventional but you have to find what works for you. There is no wrong way and you don't know how you will feel until you try. I took the approach that anything has to be better than hating myself all the time.
Because after everything you've gone through, showing yourself some #selfloveafterabuse is all that matters.
