#newenglandsummer

Do you ever feel like you have to dull your own shine for fear of making other people uncomfortable?
β €
I know it might sound strange, but this is a story I've been telling myself for a LONG time, but am only just now recognizing it as a theme in my life.
β €
It's a story that has influenced a lot of major decisions I've made.
β €
Feeling like you need to shrink who you truly are or who you could become in order to fit into a pretty little mold or someone else's perception of you. You don't want to make others feel bad about themselves or uncomfortable with their lives so you make yourself smaller. You might have not even really realized you were doing it.
β €
Deep stuff, right? πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
β €
I've decided that I'm throwing that shitty ass story out the window. Screw other people. I'm done playing it small for others' feelings. And I know I can't be alone in feeling that way. The world needs us, and needs us to be strong. So I'm spreading this the only way I know how: through self love and wellness!! β €
I've been given a gift, a platform to empower positive change in women who are open, ready and willing to create it in their lives. It's something that grows exponentially and seeps into all areas of your life, but it all has to start with you first.
β €
People need you and they need you to show up BIG. They need you as your full, honest, real, bright self. #DontDullYourShine project rolling out in October. I'll be focusing most of my efforts on harnessing what most women are missing in some of my other wellness groups: positive mindset and self-belief.
β €
Don't keep shrinking yourself to keep other people feeling comfortable. Connect with me today and we can chat more about what that means for you. 🌻✨

Good-bye summer! We love you.
Not that we're not looking forward to crisp fall days, woolly sweaters, and cozy dinners, but still... #mynewengland #summer #newenglandsummer #wellfleet #capecod #beach #greatisland #mytinyatlas #beachday #summerforever #mycoastalescape

Took a sec today to celebrate @elliotbquick - ✨birthday!! - and to check out Ad Reinhardt's blue paintings at the @davidzwirner Gallery. They're gorgeous. Blue is such a powerful color that I think everyone has a very specific/personal relationship to. I'm more of an ocean blue lady than a sky blue lady, but I love it when they dance together with each other. iPhone pics of the paintings do them no justice. See em' in person. Show Runs till October 21 - check it πŸ‘Š.

You loved ferris wheels more than roller coasters because life should not be lived at full speed, but in anticipation and appreciation 🎑 #inspirationalquote #ferriswheel #lifequote #carnival #sailfest #newlondon #latergram #newenglandsummer #summerdays #loleeta #summermemories #shorthair #summerfun
