♡ How is your selftalk? How often do you judge, make something less, dismiss or reject a part of you? Probably more often than you think.
Oftentimes we have internalised the judgemental remarks of parents, teachers, trainers, siblings, peers or society and over time have made their voice into our own. Where those comments used to happen every so often (and sometimes every day) in our childhood or early adulthood, that inner voice, that inner critic, is now with us 24/7...ready to come at us when we believe we have done something wrong or havent done something good enough. Just imagine...your own voice...criticing you over and over and over again. Abandoning yourself everytime, judging, rejecting. Detrimental isnt it? Heartbreaking aswell. When you have an enemy so closeby (our own voice), rejection from others is merely more of the same...and we often experience that as confirmation of our negative selftalk. Can you spot the loop here?
Becoming aware of negative selftalk is a great first step towards selfcompassion, selflove, selfinclusion and selfhealing. Stop judging and rejecting yourself, you deserve way more ♡

I have learned to let the sounds come out. The sounds that live within. ⠀
There are sobs and grunts and screams I have held back, told em to stay quiet because they aren’t pretty. ⠀
There are howls and wails that sit in my pelvis, slowly simmer until I can get alone, escape from a public place. ⠀
On the phone with mama and she tells me something I cannot take in. I’m at a pizza place. There is music and laughter and movement and life. I sit very still. I listen. Quietly I listen.
Later at home alone in my room, white walls and a closed door and safety and I let the sounds come out.⠀
They roll from my belly and rise through my chest and I am an animal keening. No thoughts no words just sounds. Primal. I’m a little girl and a grown ass woman and a wild one at once. ⠀
The proof of my Love is that I Let You Go when you wanted to leave. Because i wanted You to be happy. Because i care. So i only hope you'll respect me and what i did. That is love. Unconditional love. 💚
How many times have you gotten to a beach holiday, off the back of some f**ked up work & life stress, only to be meet with a head cold or flu? 🤧🏖.
Did you know that emotions can live deep within our muscles, joints and organs, rearing their full force when we allow our body to rest.
Illness is not only a byproduct of virus or infection, it’s also a byproduct of not dealing with your shit. Ever wondered why some people can completely heal from ‘incurable’ diseases when others can’t?
Resentment (one hell of a drug) bitterness, jealousy & other negatively charged emotions can lead to a life long suffering of ill heath. These bad boys can manifest so much pain, literally altering the structure of our cells, which we all know dictate the state of our health.
This can be why you can do all the gut protocols, nutrition plans & training programs in the world yet still have symptoms... because that’s not where the problem has started.
It’s NOT the root cause.
However, it’s not about a mono therapy. I’m not suggesting that trudging through the trauma will fix everything. In order to wholeheartedly, unapologetically heal, we need to be all encompassing. We need to recognise that the journey has to embody: biochemical, physical, spiritual & emotional healing properties, because if we keep holding on to yesterday we don’t allow for our tomorrow to bloom. 🌸.
Imagine your home In your home you have a SPACE for a fireplace BUT no fireplace. You decide that you want to enjoy a warm cozy fire in your living room. You kneel down and start the fire in the space that is meant for a fireplace (but remember, you still don’t have a fireplace). What do you think happens next? Instead of the fire remaining in its appropriate space it ventures out into all the rooms of your home because it never had boundaries to begin with—and now, your whole house is in flames.
So let’s try that again. Imagine your home. This time you HAVE a fireplace and decide to start a warm cozy fire within its appropriate space. You get the fire going, lean back, and enjoy its warmth. You get to enjoy the fire the way it should be enjoyed because of its boundaries! Without boundaries not only do you get an unmanageable flame BUT you also lose what’s valuable to you because of it. Boundaries, my friends, are beautiful. 𝘚𝘦𝘭𝘢𝘩.
When She Cried 〰️
Her soft loose arms
were tentatively resting
in her wide-skirted lap
black hand-sewn fabric
gasping to breathe
in staunch August heat
Over tea and toast
with lemon marmalade
her puppet-like hands
conducting an orchestra
of incomprehensible tales
some surprisingly bright
quick-witted with sting
others grainy mixed with
sand pebbles and dirt
like the dry and barren land
beneath distant olive groves
Her perfectly shaped tears
were sharp shards of shattered glass
a vintage beveled mirror
falling from the wall
‘bend deep to pick up pieces’
‘careful not to draw blood’
She paused to ask have you
ever been fearful to remember
stopping your mind
with your arms in the air
knees locked for the hit
only to find memories
are steadily unstoppable
a ship leaving port
faces melting in sorrow
a rumbling freight train
blaring madly it’s horn
in early winter hours
announcing the arrival
of broken dreams
a tsunami of thoughts
dreaded like death
of things said and done

Yikes! From textbook on how machines and technology can be used to help humans do their work.
Vogel’s Biotechnology:Concepts and Applications, 1963.
Every single emotion is a portal or window to your deeper soul. Every. Single. One. Repressing any emotion, is simply not allowing yourself to truly SEE and FEEL your entire essence. That anger, that sadness, that resentment, that jealousy... when simply embraced in loving acceptance (this does not mean to act out in anger... but to allow yourself to feeeeel the depth of your rage in love) will ALWAYS lead to some sort of homecoming unto yourself.
Vous, vous voyez un #parfum
Moi, je vois une #histoire d'enfance, la première fois de sentir du #piment, du #bois, des #senteurs qui perdurent plusieurs jours... ce fût le premier parfum que je me suis acheté avec mon premier salaire gagné du nettoyage pendant huit heures de l' #eglise du village (chaque samedi c'était 8 heures de nettoyage). Ce #dior c'est aussi mon histoire avec la peur des #addictions car au fil des années j'ai développé une vraie "addiction" aux senteurs boisées, aux odeurs, je sens tout- la nourriture, un faux pas #culturel je suis le premier à sentir des trucs pourris dans le frigo; les gels de douche parfumés. Ce sera le premier parfum que j'offrirais à mon fils.
Pareil les #tableaux et œuvres d' #art , il y a ce qu'on voit et ce qu'on ressent, le lien invisible entre l'oeuvre et vous l'acheteur, c'est ce qui donne de la valeur. N'achetez pas avec vos yeux mais plutôt avec votre #coeur et vos #emotions
Donc vous quelle est votre histoire?
I don’t even know what to say right now, I’m so filled with all this emotion; good, bad, neutral emotions, happy, sad worried emotions. My OCD has just taken a train of thought and started wrapping it around a thorn bush. I’m terrified of something so trivial, who cares what one person thinks... I have to do things that make me feel good. And being sober from alcohol and continuing to smoke weed is exactly what I need to do to feel good about myself. #mentalhealth#emotions#sober#medicalcannabis#weed#selfcare#whocareswhatpeoplethink
Did you know that people can have very similar outward expressions but very different underlying emotions?
Rather than assuming how someone is feeling, ask questions. Listen beyond their words and watch for nonverbal cues.
Follow your gut. If someone has a smile on their face, but your instincts tell you they're not ok, start by showing genuine care and concern. Lower your tone, slow your speech and check in to see how they're doing. You might say something like, "Hey, you don't seem quite like your usual self. Are you doing ok?" Listen. Really listen. Your compassion may be just what they needed.
Chase had his last settling visit to his big boy school on Monday and the boy smashed it!
Dropped him off not knowing how he'd react and he kissed me, gave me a cuddle and said sweetly "I'm a big boy now mummy, I can do this" and ran off to play. Safe to say my heart bested with pride but broke a little knowing my biggest baby isn't such a baby any more.
On pick up he was smiling and was full of excitement to tell me what he had done.
He then turned into a complete different child screaming, hitting, kicking, biting and ALOT of shouting at me. He calmed down with in a hour and a lot of chill out time in his room but we never really hear about this side of visits.
I always see posts about how their children loved school, they just walked In and it's been a walk in the park but I bet at some point even the royals have had these all mighty meltdowns and the tru angry baby Jack Jack has come out In their children.
I know for sure when ever these situations happen to me I always think is it just my child who does this? He must hate me? This surely never happens to anyone else! But then when the moments passed I have a few deep breaths I realise yes it does happen to everyone and yes at some point every child does do this and so you know what? I would to if I was going to a strange place, being told i won't see my friends who I see everyday or on certain days on those days no more, I have to leave my old teachers and make new bonds with new teachers and not have a sage person just yet, I have to be brave, I have to make new friends and every thing else that comes with this chapter I would probably not know how to deal with all these mixed emotions, feelings and the not knowing and I would probably deal with it in the same way!
So for those who are seeing the positive posts and getting all this aswell you are not alone!

I have seen it grow
even on the chillest lands,
the barren deserts and
the strangest seas,
yet with it's extremity,it
has defeated and conquered
all the deathly demons which
kill slowly and mercilessly.
It is hope,the only thing stronger
than fear and guilt,the only
bird that lends you it's wings,
the only river that teaches you
to flow with grace and velocity.
I have seen it light up
like a pale and weak candle
in the hearts of darkness
just to emerge as a raging fire,
whose blisters scare the dusk.
It is hope,the only voice that
whispers,but sounds louder than
the suppressed screeches you
make from all the suffering.
I have seen it work
like a charm that appears to
be too far fetched to occur,
in places where magic has
always been a myth.
It is hope,the only dream that
can recompense all those
nightmares and sleepless
nights one has encountered.
In all miserable times,
when one begins to fall apart,
when dreams seem to dissolve,
when pain becomes perpetual,
when quiting looks like a relief,
when survival is not a choice,
it is hope,the last thing to lose,
it is hope that invites faith,
it is hope that mends your soul,
it is hope that builds your will,
it is hope that heals your bruises,
and it is hope that makes a life
worth fighting for.
