My Grand always said ya gotta be a lil crazy to stay sane .. That means laughter and letting go of things so serious thry try to burn your soul. Protect yourself with a layer of love and let the b.s. rolll like muddy water. When the skies clear - there's just you. #reflect#empower#brave#crazy#selflove
Self-reflection is a school of wisdom.
So, pause and reflect.
A part of what it means to "practice yoga" is to be mindful and aware of how our thoughts, words, and actions impact others. While a physical practice has its benefits, the true potential of a practice is unlocked when we journey inward and acknowledge the barriers we've put up, the limits we've imposed, and understand that every aspect of our life is temporary.
Our thoughts and actions have brought us to where we are today. Are you on the path to where you want to be? #YogaWithJas#pause#reflect#TheBestIsYetToCome#TheGiftOfTime#Meditate#MindYourMind#appreciate#GatineauPark#nature
I’ve started using Monday’s as my reflection days..
I can reflect on my journal entries , reflect on what I have achieved in the past week and what I would like to achieve on the week coming..
So last week was an up & down week for me - there was equally as many good days as bad days.. However I accomplished another outing at the weekend with my mum which was really nice so with that and Fridays achievement and meeting my sister in law and niece for lunch I’m pleased with that & that may not seem much to some people but to me it is a lot..
So Tamsin (my counsellor) has set me challenges this week - so that’s what I’m using as what I am hoping to achieve this week.. ** Go to at least 1 shop - 3 times
** Get a rountine started - whereby I give myself an hour 8am-9am to get up , have breakfast, get ready and then take the dog for a walk
** Try and do something other than just going in a shop
LETS SMASH THIS 👊🏻💪🏻
Happy Monday Lovelies.. Lets all aim for a productive and successful week 💚💚 #mondays#mondaysarereflectiondays#reflect#timetoreflect#lastweek#theweektocome#myaims#myachievements#livingwithmentalhealth#myjourney#mystory#letssmashthisweek#spreadingpositivevibes

Ahhhh the parts of us that get reactive and defensive and hang out in the land of fragility. Friends, I was there in the last couple of weeks with some things that felt like major violations.
At first whiff the beast in me wanted to come out. “How dare you” to “Oh, you wanna go?!?” to “don’t ever do that again”. It’s easy to see the flaws in others, point out how they’re wrong, and want a resolution for yourself, boundaries in place, and an apology.
It’s hard to listen when you don’t want to. Amiright?! Like really hard to listen and create space for the feedback especially when you’re feeling insulted. But, I did it, which also means you can get into the practice of perking up those ears and allowing yourself to shift your mindset. I have a practice that I can tap into that directs me back to me. On lesser violations I can activate it quickly, but on bigger ones I sometimes need a few days in the boxing gym punching one out. What I know I need to do? I have to exercises the pause, and I must be willing to ask questions and allow the feedback to serve me. If I’m closed off to the feedback serving me I won’t get anywhere. What is this bringing forward? What is this clearing? What is it teaching me about myself? What practice do I need to put in place? Is there something I have missed that I need to own? Check - check - check - check.
Doing that gave me answers. It led me straight to why I had resistance around something professionally. These violations (someone very seriously stealing my work and another person’s energy who needed to get cleared) were able to lift really dramatically. It’s not right what happened, but there’s space between me and it, AND the feedback led me to a much bigger yes with something I’ve been resisting. When I listened I was able to clear. And when I clear I am able to step into what’s been calling. Anyone want to guess what I’ve been resisting and what’s been calling?! #mindfulmft#lifelessons #momlife#parenting#humanlife#pause#reflect#checkyouremotions#yourewelcome#picoftheday
This goes for your character as well! You will be hard pressed to find someone loud, obnoxious, and who is regularly involved in drama who is actually happy in their personal lives. It is also unlikely that you will find people who are genuinely happy, intentionally causing hurt and commotion. Check on more that just the accounts at your financial institutions. Check yourself! Are you morally poor? Are you socially rich? Are you spiritually wealthy? Do you care? We all need to reflect self and truly evaluate what we are really “worth”. You can have all of the money and power in the United States of America and still be poor! #iamyourtaylormade#truth#reflect#selfreflect#poor#rich#wealthy#iamyourtaylormade#obnoxious#flashy#ignorant#wisedom#maturity#loud#quiet#check #Repost from @mrs_brown915. 🤔

I learnt to love every angle
Of my broken but beautiful being
The sides that were dark as well as dented
Running into hope of something more
Running into opportunity
I will always be more than any mental illness I have
I will always be more

We lie on the sofa, watching a documentary about Australia's birds and animals. He gently strokes my arm and comments occasionaly on kangaroos' ability to carry its babies in the pouch, or on koalas sleeping more than 20 hours a day. "Now I know. You are a koala!" he exclaims. He leans over to kiss me on the cheek and sees tears falling down on my chin.
"What's wrong, babe?" he asks.
"Nothing, I'm fine." I answer, hastily wiping my eyes with the back of my pyjamas sleeve.
"I didn't want to offend you, I am so sorry, " he says with a soft voice and looks at my face, trying to understand my emotions.
He gives me a long and tight hug. I never tell him the truth, because it is too complicated to put it all in words. He doesn't know that I cry because...
I have a doctor's appointment the next morning and I am afraid.
I have bad dreams about him dying in a car crash and leaving me all alone.
I love him so much that I am afraid to lose myself in him.
I am afraid to lose him because of another woman.
I think he thinks his ex- girlfriend was better than me.
I can't find a job that would make me happy.
I work out every day and then do nothing for weeks.
I try to cut on sugar but can't resist his mom's cake.
I look at myself in the mirror and do not see a person I wish to be.
I wish we had more money.
I wish we had a cat.
I miss my mom.
"It's okay, babe. But if I am a koala, then you are a big juicy eucalyptus leaf and I am going to eat you!" I start tickling him and he laughs. I dry my tears and put on a smile. He doesn't know.. Should I tell him?

some guy named Plato once said “the first and best victory is to conquer self”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
there is no doubt that mastery of self is hard work and takes constant effort. but know this, self respect and self discipline will get you almost anywhere you could want to go, and you can’t have one without the other.
Fácil é julgar pessoas que estão sendo expostas pelas circunstâncias. Difícil é encontrar e refletir sobre seus erros, ou tentar fazer diferente algo que já fez muito errado. E é assim que perdemos pessoas especiais. Reflita!
