“Held by the Earth. Moved by the Moon. Sparked by the Sun. Swayed by the Sea. She was a force to be reckoned with.” @rebeccathoughts #TBT What would you say to your younger self, if you could speak lovingly?
This is so TRUE!!!! I can't wait to be with these women every week. Wanna see what I am talking about- come and check out a class. "You can tell who the strong women are. They are the ones building one another up, instead of tearing each other down." - Anonymous
A guy asked me yesterday, "How's your week?"
I didn't really know how to respond. I ended up going with, "good, how about you?"
It felt like a lie.
Well, not completely because it's not not good. But also not my typical version of good.
It could best be described as fine. And I don't do fine in my life.
I do awesome. On fire. Lit up. Excellent. Badass.
So fine? Not good. Blah. Bleh. Yuck.
And I've noticed that my biggest lesson this week is with being with what is, without judgement. Oy.
I've been judging the hell out of my lackluster week and then judging myself for judging myself. 🙄🤦🏻♀️😂
Not every week is some version of on fire, go get em, creating magic, live my best life. Some weeks are more human than others - working through tough emotions, processing let downs, putting one foot in front of the other out of commitment rather than inspiration.
These weeks are just as important as the rest. Honor the cycles. Bless the lessons. Roll with what's showing up.
Know that what you see on most social media pages are the highlights and the on fire moments.
Yet we ALL have those moments of not knowing how to answer, "how's your week?"
Be with what is.
You're doing great.
Skønne HuMan, når noget føles nemt, er det fordi du embodier det og er et levende eksempel walking the talk🙏🌱🌻 Nemt er mega værdifuldt, fordi følelsen af nemhed er et tegn på at vi har mestret noget så meget, at vi er det - og derfor nemt kan dele det med HuManity, bare ved at være os, fordi det er en naturlig del af vores væren 🌱🌻🙏Når noget føles hårdt og tungt, så er det ofte et tegn på at vi bruger helt vildt meget energi på at være det, fordi det endnu ikke er en naturlig del af vores væren - vores naturlige stadie kræver ingenting af os, fordi vi bare er det 🌻Det er den vi er - vores sandhed lige nu💎💜Det der ofte betyder allermest og er mest værdifuldt, er tit det der er allermest simpelt, fordi vi allerede ved det indeni og er det💎💜 Vi skal ikke lærer det 🌱🌻Det er naturligt for os 🌱 Det er næsten for nemt til at være sandt, tænker vores tanker tit 🌱Når den naturlighed opstår, betyder det at vi har integreret noget SÅ meget i vores atomer og nervesystem, at det er groundet ind i vores væren og embodiet i vores celler 🙏🌱 Vi er det, og vi giver det videre til HuManity ved bare at leve som os, med det som en del af os 💎🌍🌻💜 Det er nemt🌱💎 #SatNam#BeToBe#YouBeYou#HighvibeConsciousness#Kundalini#WAHE billedet taget hos skønne @noell_crystals 💎💜

It’s so easy to be critical of ourselves and magnify even the tiniest of errors that befall us in business…so I’m going out on a limb and focusing instead on three things I do WELL in my work. I’m extremely organized, problem solver, and love to listen to people. It kinda feels odd and self-congratulatory, but why shouldn’t we give ourselves props where props are due?! We give them to others all the time! List your 3 best business qualities below and we’ll all extend our own proverbial pats on the back to you, too! (And I promise, once you get past the ‘wait, what?’ of it, it feels really good!) #ThankfulThursday#makeupfreemomma#youbeyou
Just want to thank everyone that has ordered You Be You already. I’m blown away with the responses from the internal team that has read it! 😀😇 It’s helping them see life in a whole new lens. 😎 I’ve poured so much life and energy into this creation and if it can improve one persons life that IS the goal. 😇 I really worked diligently to make it as simple as possible for people to consume. Order yours today and let me know what you think when it comes out. When you order it send me a message on here so I can send you some free gifts as well. 🎁 #bookclub#youbeyou#lovelife#success#readersareleaders
There are no such thing as a perfect person . We are all so very unique and have our own quirks that make us such beautiful individuals. Never let another person tear you down or see your self as they see you. Know your worth and know you are enough and you are so worthy of love ❤️. Hoping that each of can look in the mirror and say I’m proud of myself and I am enough. Share kindness and make the world a better place 💗
Connection before redirection.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When we are feeling any big emotion, our logical brain is shut off. The logical part is not needed when we are feeling stressed and threatened. Our brains shift into survival mode.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is why connecting is so vital. When we are stuck in survival mode, we are disconnected and lost. We need a cord to connect us back so we start to feel safe and loved, and start to engage in the logical piece.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can connect various ways, but the most powerful one is validation. To be seen, felt, and heard. Not necessarily agreed with, but just someone saying "Hey you, you're feeling this big feeling, and I hear you." Sharing the message that you matter, your feelings matter, and this will pass.
There’s no “we” without ME! What does that mean?! • • • First level: Self care is central, especially if you’re dealing w the chronic condition of being in a relationship w an energy vampire—your ex, your spouse, your sibling, your parent, anyone who views you as an emotional sponge or convenient refueling station. Seriously, small stuff works too: take 5 mins longer in the shower, maybe get a waterproof Bluetooth speaker even! get a back massage (even if it’s the only reason you’d ever go to a nail salon!), buy the damn cappuccino already. ♥️ • • • Second level: SAY YES TO YOUR HEART. this is an especially vital point if you’ve been socialized into a culture (or religion, like Christianity) that worships female sacrifice for male gain OR if you’ve been told that you’re an aberration, “not normal,” “so weird,” a burden, etc. #metoo and intersectional feminism have big truths for the structures of our society and the patterns that shape individual relationships. ❤️💪🏽💃🏻 •. •. •. third level: Putting “ME” in the equation is essential for there to be any legit, mutual relationship worthy of the name “WE.” A constructive relationship doesn’t steamroll or omit the ME; it honors and elevates the uniqueness AND togetherness of both partners. Anything less is domination, and that ain’t good. Life and love shouldn’t be zero-sum games. Those games aren’t worth playing: it’s time to create your own adventure. ❤️ ✨✨ •. •. •. AND: final level. If you’re not convinced, consider this: your friends, kids, pets, and those who love you UNCONDITIONALLY never ever want to see you diminished by being absorbed into someone else’s vision of reality. If you are a parent, listen: your kids need the fullness and uniqueness of you, not a paltry and tired version. You are modeling for them what it means to be human. •. •. •. #youbeyou#enoughisenough#putthemeinwe#divorcedoctors#difficultdivorce#webelieveinyou#emotionalabuse#recovery#justsayno#youarenotalone
Facing fear and doubt alone feels like an impossible battle. But the days I choose to bring the fear and doubt from inside my mind to the light of Truth and the wisdom of others, is when real victory is accomplished! I am so thankful for these women who daily inspire and empower me to seek Truth, courage and grit. What fear or doubt are you facing today? You are not alone. Find your safe people, bring it into the light, message me. We all struggle but we don’t have to struggle alone. #safeplace#choosecourage#youarestrongerthanyouthink ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
🖤🖤🖤 Nearly 100 youth & junior TRIathletes have experienced our triathlon coached programs since we opened our doors!🖤🖤🖤Each athlete showing up as a unique individual. Some shy, some spirited, some fast and fit, some finding their stride, some confident, some unsure, some tall, some tiny & mighty, some advanced, some beginners, some already TRIathletes, some becoming one. Those moments when you pause from the coaching and just observe them being who they are...they are every bit beautiful humans. 🖤🖤🖤Grateful to serve their body, mind and spirit through the sport of Triathlon. 🖤🖤🖤 #beautifulhumans#triathlonkids#humanspirit#youbeyou#inspireothers#shineon
Too outspoken, honest, loud...or maybe you’re too quiet, sensitive, emotional~whatever you are, continue to be you and when you find the people who appreciate you and all your “too much” LOVE them hard!! Those are your people. I’m so thankful to have a handful of those people in my life! Accepting and liking ourselves is hard enough without the opinions of others, so you do you! ❤️
I wrote once about how my pieces don’t fit. When I see people in public that I don’t know that well in life but faithfully follow me on social media, they always mention something about me being a mom. Sometimes they talk about me being inspirational. Sometimes they ask me about my hair. Sometimes they talk about track and field. Sometimes it’s my former students with big hugs. Sometimes it’s people who know me through my husband. I feel like that stuff is all unrelated. Yet, here I am one person wearing a million hats in a world that tells you to have a niche. God has asked me to document all of them - motherhood and random spurts of DIY projects, coaches wife life and track and field, hair and birthdays and everything in between. Document so that everyone can see that they are more than their sport, or their title, or their job. More importantly, document for you. You being me. You being Me. So that I can know that who I am is more than enough. #fridayeve#blessed#thelife
I asked Andy for a clothes hanger, to start selling clothes plus assorted accessories from hats to glasses, jewellery and everything in between made from around the world • I’m amazed by this beautiful stunning piece he has created, made from used materials from around the home. More to come • watch this space #jandycreative#jandylife#diy#homecreations#usedmaterials#palletart#art#sculpture#create#build#youbeyou

Gonna be black and white with this one - hit me with your answers peeps cos Im puzzled on this one.
So I saw a poetry play tonight titled 'whispers' it was only 30 seconds into the show that I went into a deep zone which made me question aspects about our lives.. Now, I gotta be harsh here...
Why do you not have confidence in yourself? Why do you not trust your own judgement? Why do you lack comfort and peace of your own presence?? Why the fuck do you care two fucks about what the person that walks past you in the street thinks? I have seen a huge decline in the way we interact with one another these days and the majority stems from our own inability to feel comfortable as we are 'like its not OK to be ourselves' I see too many people spend money they don't have on stuff they don't need... To "fit in" do they need to fit in though? DO YOU WANT TO FIT IN? If fitting in is being the same as everyone else and not having confidence and pride in who I am then I definetly don't fit in. And I definetly don't wanna. It saddens me that people feel as though a kind gesture or a compliment is paid in expectation of something in return and it saddens me that people will go out of their way to put others down as if they are not like them so they are not cool.
Its perfectly fine to have aspirations, but, never compromise your own happiness and true colours to blend into the colours around you. Be odd unique and confident be self assured and proud of who you are.
i am currently reading...well i am currently reading a lot of things...but one of the books i’m reading is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. this beautiful work of fiction couldn’t be more true to life. it is about a young man who follows his dream, his truth, his “Personal Legend,” and how the Universe conspires to aid him at every step because he is truly guided by his passion in this life. it put me in mind of this amazing asymmetrical grid with the most gorgeous emerald at its center. this grid speaks to the fact that we should all follow our most treasured dream. i also love that it feels both securely grounded and as if it will take flight at any moment, much like my wildest dreams. do what you love. seek peace within yourself, and the Universe will always have your back.
This week’s crystal grid meditation asks us to commit to aligning to our true self. Not to just stop by for a casual visit with that dream every once in a while, but to surrender your heart and spirit to it with deep and unbreakable loyalty. It is so easy to get lost in what others want for us or from us. So easy to gravitate toward the things that placate or sometimes complicate relationships with others in order to feed our egos or satisfy a yearning to please or pacify. Release those feelings of pride along with the ones of guilt and look within to find your true passion. Ground yourself in the stability of that truth and then let it reflect in reality every moment of every day. See your true self as your true love and recognize that choosing that authentic part of you is, in actuality, the only choice. Succumb to the brilliance of ultimate devotion to your true self with #emerald#snowflakeobsidian#orthoceras#epidote#mica in #clevelandite#blacktourmaline and #quartz . #trueself#truepassion#truth#youbeyou#crystalgrid#crystals#crystalsofinstagram#crystalsofig#crystalmapping#leylines#allignment#balance#joy#passion#love#loveyourself#meditation#commitment#loyalty#surrender
Muslin Gowns Meant Infection
In the time of Jane Austen romance in the 18th and 19th centuries, women wore lightweight gowns made of muslin that draped gently over their bodies. Many also dampened their bodies before dressing so the material would cling and properly show off their curves. As you can imagine, this didn’t protect them much from the elements- in 1803 there was such a widespread outbreak of pneumonia amongst these ladies that it was dubbed “The Muslin Disease”. ⠀
It is a truth universally acknowledged that if you live somewhere a bit nippy, it’s best to wear a coat if you want to survive the winter!
You were born to be REAL, not perfect. ✨👏🏼 I can’t tell you what a relief it is to have engaging conversations with authentic souls. It feels like such a rarity to come across people who aren’t jaded with a wall up and putting on some sort of false persona of who they really are. It’s ok to be a dork. It’s ok to be a weirdo. It’s ok to be vulnerable and sensitive. It’s ok to show you have a messy side and don’t have it all together. The right people for you will actually find your flaws endearing and will probably find you far more interesting/relatable. Just.be.YOU👊🏼 #authenticity
Sometimes being happy and having self love can feel like the hardest thing in the world. I know that for me sometimes I get so insecure I just don’t know how to cope. My head fills with hate and darkness and then a ray of sunshine will come along (be it family/ friends/ my boyfriend or even a dog) and I smile and laugh and fill my whole world brighten up again. People don’t know about the demons you face and only you can change your mentality, but having the people you live close does make everything that bit easier 💛
