I just snapped this quickly on the train to say good morning to a lovely friend, but it turned out quite well I thought.
Anyway, random thought for the day: do you filter who you follow on here based on 'what people might think'? I've definitely done this. Suppose, for arguments sake, that i want to follow someone who mostly posts photos of their butt. This desire may be because (a) i appreciate the amazing technical artistry of the butt photography; or (b) the captions give profound insights into something I'm interested in, e.g. butt positivity; or perhaps more likely (c) the owner of the butt is a complex, interesting and beautiful human, who i would like to connect with on some level. And yet i always worry that people will look at who I'm following and assume (d) that i just like to spend my free time looking at butts. Well, let them. I'm over it. 🍑🤷🏼
If you have- or suspect that you have- autoimmune disease/chronic illness then the fastest way to start to heal is to first ACCEPT that you have to live differently and not stress over things that will not change.
I had to accept having to be more mindful of how I lived my life, and that the 3 major factors that impair our already struggling and tired immune system that we CAN control are
With a healing protocol like #CEP , #AIP , or #Wahls these 3 must be addressed because it's part of the change in lifestyle needed to recover our health. While other protocols are not as comprehensive as the CEP and focus on diet only, it is these lifestyle changes that a CEP provider can help you with, regardless of which diet they decide is best for your journey.
Stress is a huge focus of mine because it affects my sleep schedule which is necessary to heal- and to feel good the next day. This goes against every fiber of my being not to obsessively tackle every problem until there is resolve - even if one doesn't exist......like having an autoimmune disease...... or 3..... or 4.
You CAN'T cure them and go back to living carelessly as many before you have tried, and hanging on to your old way of living keeps you from moving forward.
You CAN do everything possible to lower antibodies and put autoimmune diseases into remission.
Changing your #mindset from "why is this happening to me" to "what is this- your body (your body is your friend)- trying to tell me" helps you to move forward with your life.
Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles, it only takes away today's peace. So take a deep breath and enjoy your life. #whyworry#enjoylife#peaceofmind
#WednesdayWisdom ... Here's a little follow up to my morning post....
👉 Your opinion of me is none of my business video style .
🏋️♂️The gym scene nowadays can be overwhelming...
🔉But if you take a step back and watch.. The people you perceive are judging you are so engrossed in themselves they will hardly even know you are there.
👉(it's not a dig at any #fitnessenthusiasts ) but for regular#gymgoers you know yourself when you start training alot of things become irrelevant and you can get caught up in yourself.
👌I've been judged 1000 times about what I eat but when you get over the initial attention... It generally does away as the person sinks into thier crossaint.
👉Remember who you are doing it for... Go back to your why.
👉You can build the body and mindset of your choice by changing your thought process day by day
♥️♥️These are the kind of mindset hacks I've created in my online and personal training plans.. It all starts with mindset

They say worrying is like a rocking chair... it gives you something to do, but gets you nowhere. Instead of worrying, The Bible says: "Fix your thoughts on what is true...honorable...right...pure...lovely...and admirable... things that are excellent and worthy of praise... Then the God of peace will be with you." Philippians 4:8-9
Today, let God set you free from worry. #noworry#trustgod#godanswersprayers#whyworry#worryingwastestime#kompassministries
BIST DU GLÜCKLICH MIT DIR SELBST? 🧐 Nadine von @planethibbel hat mich das gestern gefragt. Meine Antwort lautet: Jep! Insgesamt bin ich das tatsächlich! 👍 Ich habe meine Macken - aber wer hat die nicht? 🤷♀️😎
Trotzdem bin ich glücklich mit mir selbst, denn das Gesamtpaket zählt - und für jeden Minuspunkt gibt es mind. einen Pluspunkt! 😁 Außerdem gibt es tatsächlich niemanden mehr, dem ich etwas beweisen möchte /muss. Ein echter Vorteil am älter werden! 👵🏻😉 Und was lernen wir daraus: Es kommt wie immer auf die eigene Sichtweise an! Oder wie seht ihr das? @einfachstephie , @mamaotr @tagaustagein und @ganzschoenlaut #happyme#happyness#glücklichmitmirselbst#persönlichkeitsentwicklung#mamablogger
There is always light after the dark. Sun after the night. The promise is certain. Even if u're lucky enough, u can catch rainbow (or double) at the end of rainy day like today. So #whyworry ??
So much easier said than done but so so true!
I know I'm currently in the process of getting back up, actually I feel I have been for the past few weeks. And each day I have tried has made it slightly easier for the next day and the next. And here I am, now restarting these inspiration/motivation words that many of you had found so valuable.
Thank you so much for your feedback and support. There is so much more to come on the horizon which makes me equally as excited as being overwhelmed.
Still in the process of adapting to such a vast experience, culture, food, weather and hardest of all.. staying away from loved ones. Going on, I expect to fall another 9 times and I hope you will show understanding and offer support as I rise with each fall +1.
Today is the perfect day....everyday is the perfect day.. to be living with regret is concentrating too much on the past, to be living with worry is concentrating too much on the future. Live with happiness, concentrate on here and now, count all the things in your life your thankfull for and focus on your present moment all day. It's not easy, but practise makes perfect, whenever you find yourself drifting into worry or regret, just refocus and count all the things your thankfull for again. #liveinthenow#bepresent#focusyourenergy#pastispast#futureisunknown#whyworry#noregrets#behappy
😂😂😂 This thing called worry.
This is what happens when you meditate on the negative (worry) so much that it leaves your thoughts and becomes a reality.
You literally have to wake yourself up and say "Wait! This hasn't even happened yet (and might not even happen) so why again am I worried about it?"
Most of the things you worry about don't end up happening and even if they do, you get through them and become even stronger and better.
So why worry?? #goodmorning#behappy#whyworry#dontworry#positivevibes#newweek#newattitude#mondaymotivation#itsallinyourhead
This is a milestone for me.

Months ago, a full body picture would have never even existed. My hallelujahs were silenced and my hope was dead. I was utterly disgusted by my physical appearance and by my personality. I felt ashamed, unwanted, abandoned. You name it. But now... I have reached the light at the end of the tunnel.
▪ ▪ ▪
When I cried out to God and begged Him to save me, I expected perfection. I wanted to wake up one day and never feel this way again. I wanted and practically demanded that God change my situation.
What I didn't know or understand is that it's not our situations that define us. Our situations don't determine the outcome of our lives.
One day, in one last desperate attempt, I pleaded, "God, change me." That's all it took.
It was then and only then that God could heal me. Even now He is restoring all of my broken pieces. ☝️🙏
▪ ▪ ▪
I hadn't even realized how tightly I was gripping. I didn't realize how much my situation was hurting my hands.
Human shoulders weren't built to carry the weight that I was bearing.
▪ ▪ ▪
Guys, let go and let God. These burdens aren't yours to carry. Let God hold you up. Let God handle your dirt.
Surrender your need for control to Him.
Feel the heaviness being taken off of you.
He's calling out to you.
The freedom bells are ringing.
All it takes is surrender.
Let Him heal you.
