"There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me that is a true sense of beauty." - The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart. It is the passion that she shows, the caring that she lovingly gives. True beauty is about who you are as a human being, your principles, values, your morals. The way you love, the way you give. How you accept yourself and others. How compassionate, graceful you are when opening your heart and assimilating different perspectives reflects the true inner beauty of your heart and soul. 
Don't let society to change you or how you see yourself. Don't even try to impress anyone, it's a never ending unrealistic race of being who you are not. There are many people who love you for who you are, appreciate your inner beauty and the amazing person you became. Believe you are a once in all history event. Be faithful to that which exists nowhere but in yourself. Celebrate Your Authenticity.๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’—๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒŽ Tag women you know!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Photocredit @vadik_swenson_photography #woman #authenticity #passion #loving #nurturing #feminine #queen #grace #vunerability #warmth

What are the limits of your love? How far are you willing to go to love beyond your fears or the fears of the one you love? Do you pull away, shut down when you get afraid, or you lean in & fight for love? Do you give up when you feel pushed away, or you give your partner something to fight for? Everyone has struggles & sensitive areas where we've been emotionally wounded; unfortunately, most of us have grown up in families that were love-limiting; we just weren't taught how to emotionally cope with life, loss or pain. We were taught to earn it, lash out or cry for the love we want or go without. Have your experiences taught you to run away from what scares you, or to run towards what you want, no matter what happens? Do you run away without giving closure to your partner, creating even deeper emotional wounds that takes forever to recover from or you come with love, compassion & talk heart to heart?
Unconditional love is not just loving someone for who they are, it's removing the conditions that prevent love: judgement, criticism, guilt, shame & blame. If you're allowing fears (loss, rejection, abandonment..) to control how you feel, or reacting from your past emotional wounds, then youโ€™re creating anxiety in relationship, putting limitations on you&your partner, & then weโ€™re preventing ourselves from being open to giving & receiving love freely; weโ€™re preventing the flow of love.
How do you want to love & be loved? Can you really put aside your own fears, insecurities, & selfishness in order to be fully present in your relationship & show up consistently in love, or is there a price that you put on your love? How patient is your love; patient enough to help your partner overcome their own fears? 
If you're willing to take responsibility for how you want to feel, the love you want to experience, then you can grow beyond anything that is holding your love back or limiting your love. By giving the gift of understanding & empathy for each other, we create a safe space for healing & communication that leads to emotional intimacy & connection. Imagine loving with your full potential, with all of your heart, with all of your might, how different would your life be.

You do build in darkness if you have faith. When the light returns you have made of yourself a fortress... you may even find yourself needed and thought by others as a beacon in their dark. - A big shout out to you. ๐Ÿ™โค๏ธ

How about smoothie full of vitamins and minerals for breakfast!? I think having Fruits/Veggies smoothie is a great way to add more fiber, vitamins and nutrients into your day. I usually do it in the morning or right before my workout. I also add to it a spoon of protein and raw oatmeal bc it gives me more energy. So now I'm ready to go and have a great workout! Try it yourself, you can add to it any veggies/fruits and see what taste good to you. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜œ

Getting out of bed, being more productive, or accomplish all what is on your daily schedule ... that takes being focused and you have to motivate yourself to stay focused on the task. We all get distracted. There are good distractions that actually can help to accomplish the task and bad distractions.- A recent study conducted by UCI indicated that most people take 23 minutes and 15 seconds to recover from an interruption. Next time you put down your project, or at the gym and decide to scroll down social media ending up watching funny cats videos or TV shows; remember how much harder it is to refocus and get that time back. 23minutes! Thatโ€™s actually a pretty long time, and it can really add up over the course of a day, your workout etc.
