#positivitychain

I can’t tell you how long it took me to come to terms with the fact that weight loss isn’t linear. I still struggle with it a little, but I don’t feel completely discouraged when I gain a little weight or when the scale doesn’t budge for a while. But healing? This is a new one for me to rumble with. .
.
One of the first pieces of advice I got after the breakup was to roll with the waves of emotion as they came. They would be numerous in the beginning and slowly fade away over time. What I didn’t realize was how the frequency would decrease but the intensity would stay the same for a while. Sometimes I get frustrated with myself (“Why am I STILL crying about that asshole?”), but I’m learning to embrace the waves. To hug them into me like I hugged my legs into my body in yesterday’s yoga practice. To feel the emotions in their fullness and get curious about them. To lean into them and listen to the lessons they want to teach me. I remind myself to be open to their teachings and to be grateful for the self-awareness that comes with healing and growth. And to be thankful for the increase in empathy and compassion for others.
.
.
Whatever journey you’re on, I can bet it isn’t going to be linear. Whether it’s your career, your health, your healing, etc. You will have good days and bad days. You will have times where you feel stuck or stalled. You will even have times when you have to take a step in the “wrong” direction. Be persistent, be consistent, and keep your goal in focus. You may not get there when and how you wanted to, but you will get there. ❤️

Thursday is Tinks 🐶adoptaversary, we gave her presents 🎁early because today she got a mani-pedi (not that she enjoys them 🤣) and a new ball (she loves) and sweater (she hates, rubbed on the floor/couch/bed until she wriggled out of it 🤨). Anyhoo today’s eats:
B-sweet tater bowl, added coconut cream after the snap
L-egg salad with fix’ns and sides and banana with almond butter and coconut flakes
D-seared scallops and cold Thai salad with sunshine sauce (yum), even got my husband to join me.
And a little positivity-I choose compliments 😘

Learning, Growing, & becoming Brilliant- with every downfall, uphill battle, wondrous moment, & victory.

I know I’ve been a lil off my game lately, thank you so much to my loves who reached out to me, and for every kind word on my posts.
I lost my job this last week, and after being there for 13 years, I felt all kinda crazies.
Rough for being so early in 2018 after such a turbulent 2017.
Weirdest yet somehow busiest week of my life!!! I’m not sure what’s coming up next, what direction I want to go in just yet- but I am confident that there’s something amazing coming my way. ———————————————
A page from #TheSheBook for the #positivitychain tag, thank you beauty @fitgirl.mommibot ———————————————

* Tag me if you repost please* Okay so I came up with this last night as a way to show some accounts how much you enjoy their content just to spread some positivity. I am not a big account and I know people don’t want to mess up their feed but I’m really hoping this will spread but even if it doesn’t I’m still glad I made it. I am also not doing this for likes and comments cause I could care less about that. I tagged some accounts I really love though there are many many more I would’ve tagged if I could remember them all and also didn’t want to bug them haha. •

Happy #mondaymotivation to all of you. This is one of the most motivating men I have ever read about. I wish there were more people like him in this world. He was a true #inspiration It makes me so heartbroken that so much of his work seems to be coming undone lately. I hope I’m wrong. #motivationmonday #positivitychain #moveforward #dontstopbelieving #martinlutherkingjr

We made it to church yesterday. 👍 Pastor talked about the only true security we have, the Name of the Lord. This is the verse of the day today. ☺️ I love when He speaks so clearly to me. What are you putting your security in? Put your trust in the Creator of the Universe! He is always faithful! .

I am not a swimmer. I have not (yet) cracked open a book by @brenebrown (promise she is on my list). But I do have a VERY bad habit of comparing myself, especially when I am mentally the most vulnerable-late at night or early in the morning. One thing I am working on is putting a stop to belittling myself and my journey (career-wise, health-wise, money-wise) because of an unrealistic idea of where I “should” be. Instead of falling down the comparison rabbit hole this morning, I searched for motivation to keep putting my best foot forward, even though I feel I have tripped a bit, and so many words spoke to me and made me think differently. Including this tweet. I hope you all find time to think positively about yourself and where you are today and start this week off strong 💪🏻 #motivationmonday #positivitychain #brenebrown #comparisonkillsjoy #mentalhealth #wellnessjourney #2018ismyyear #fitgirlsguide #kentuckyfitgirl #fitgirlfollow #fitgirl #fitgirlsdontquit #28dayjumpstartchallenge #28dayjumpstart #fitbabesunited #kentuckyfitbabe #fitbabe #fitbabefollow

Yesterday was a better day! Spiritual food was on point! Plus, it's good to have family and a couple of close friends you can honestly talk to. Unfortunately, you cannot talk to everyone, some cannot keep things confidential. Finding a good therapist is critical as well! Depression and anxiety are serious health issues that cannot be simply swept away. I can't mask my health problems anymore than someone who has high blood pressure or diabetes can. Part of the reason why I ended up 238 lbs. was due to depression. If you suffer with depression and/or anxiety, please speak to your doctor about therapy immediately. Don't be ashamed, don't ignore it, and don't diminish your feelings. Yes, there is a difference between having a couple of blue days and depression. It took me a long time to learn the difference. Erase the stigma of depression. Your overall health depends on it!

I do truly believe that the vibe you put out is what you attract. Or maybe it is that your attitude affects your perception of events. Maybe it’s a little of both. But I do know that when I choose to find positives in difficult situations, they are instantly easier to deal with. When I allow myself to be bogged down in the negatives, it feels like positive things will never happen again.
.
.
Choosing happiness is an active practice. You have to constantly remind yourself to look for the positives (especially if you have depression!). But if you can get into the habit, if you can begin to retrain your brain, your life will change. So I ask: what are three things you are grateful for today? 🌞

Reposting this image from @drmindfulmama! .

This is EXACTLY what I’ve been working on with myself. I talk myself out of things with all of the “what if’s”... Like, what if it’s been too long since I last contacted that connection? What if I go to that all-day meeting and don’t know anyone? What if I say the wrong thing? What if I don’t do it perfectly? What if my form is off? What if I look stupid doing that? ETC ETC ETC. 🛑 .
.
What if’s are what kept me in a toxic relationship. What if’s plague me as I look to future relationships. What if’s kept me from working out at a gym. What if’s kept me from working out at home. What if’s kept me from posting makeup-free selfies. What if’s kept me from going back to school for so long. What if’s kept me from pursuing an internship earlier. But every time I’ve IGNORED the what if’s, my life has changed for the positive. I’m MONTHS from graduating, I’m working in an excellent internship, I’ve joined a society through school, I’m pursuing a graduate degree, I’m working out, I’m cooking healthy meals for myself. .
.
The what if’s can suck it. 2018 is going to be all about being less hypothetical. 2018 is about going for it. 2018 is about thriving.
