  • It's not easy being human. No matter how many tools, and strategies, and self help books we acquire, it does not eliminate our experience of suffering. Those things can sometimes help us to feel more safe and comfortable when we're feeling overwhelmed. But the truth is, we still don't get to escape the very real and raw experience of what it means to be human in a sometimes very painful, confusing, and isolating world.
.
.
Even as a therapist, I don't get to escape this. In fact, as a therapist I'm often pretty hard on myself and expect that I should just be fine all the time. I have to give myself constant reminders that I'm also only human and have my own fare share of flaws and vulnerabilities and tender parts.
.
.
So, in case you're having one of those days yourself, I just wanted to speak up and let you all know that there are days when we feel we can't seem to do anything to feel better, to "manage" our feelings, or to even be "mindful" enough. And that's totally okay. We can't do this growth thing 100% all the time. Healing is far from perfect, it's meant to be messy. And being in our own mess often brings us the deepest clarity.

  • It’s Friday! Cheers! 🥂.
.
I love a lil drink on the weekend wether I’m partying the night away with the squad or just watching Netflix and painting my nails! When it comes to cocktails, I’m a vodka girl myself! So I was obviously pumped to partner with Heroes Vodka (@heroesvodkafounder) for my birthday party!.
.
My honey is a bartender and he invented a pretty pink punch that was an absolute hit! But it doesn’t have name! Read the recipe and comment below what you think it should be called!.
.
Heroes Vodka🇺🇸
Pink Lemonade💖.
Rosé🍷.
Sprite🍋.
.
So what do you think? What should we name it?! What will you be sipping on this weekend? .

  • What is the purpose of life if there is no joy? For some, joy comes easy and is a constant. For others it is a life long pursuit to find it. I am always amazed at how many clients have never been able to experience or feel real joy and have no clue how to find it.  I can say with ultimate certainty, that joy is a key factor in healing, and allowing yourself to seek and find joy is a true key to enlightenment.  I think that is perhaps why I was so attracted to crystals, they helped me find the hidden parts of myself, including joy. *******************************************For you lovely people who want to know- crystals in the picture are listed starting from top right- yellow jasper, manganocalcite, amazonite hearts, carnelian, lapis, blue opal, purpurite, cobaltoan calcite, angel aura, phosphosiderite, purple fluorite, orange calcite, green fluorite, Tiffany Stone, malachite, pink opal, charoite, yellow fluorite, morganite, moonstone, blue chalcedony, red jasper, pink fluorite, chrysocolla, amethyst, blue topaz. And yes- all are either available on my website or will be shortly. 💖. #crystals #crystalhealing #selflove #joy #healingcrystals #selfacceptance

I was at my parent's place and I found my old storage box. With many notebooks inside... They were not even that old, I wrote in some of them just 5 years ago. I was a bit shocked after I started reading... houndreds of pages of food diary. Year after year, day after day. I was counting calories, points or carbohydrates etc.
❤
Many notebooks started with a straigt line, on the otherside was my current weight and on the otherside my goal weight. I measured myself like the modeling world teched me. I marked if I had taken any food supplements or drank enough water, I gave grades to how my day went. I rated my life according to what I ate and my workouts?!
❤
The worst thing... there was a photo of myself modeling and some photos that I had cut from magazines of skinny supermodels. I had written next to my photo: I DON'T WANT TO LOOK LIKE THIS. And next to the other photo... I want to look like this, and then there was this "thinspiration" photo.
❤️
How sad. I hated my body for so many years. I was too big, my boobs were too small. I was ashamed of my body, and I was sure everybody looked at me like I saw myself. I controlled my eating for years but only nowadays understand how unhealthy it was.
❤
I was never diagnosed with eating disorder but now I think maybe I've had at least some kind of orthorexia for a while. After trying to be as skinny as possible I became obsessed of being as toned as I can and I started to aim for muscels at the gym.
❤
Why do I want to share this? Because yoga has helped me the most. After finding yoga to my everyday life, I lost my interest in my weight and the measurements of my body. I haven't weighed myself for at least three years now. These things don't define anymore who I am. "You are beautiful exactly the way you are." ❤️

  • You’re probably not going to wake up one day and be perfectly “recovered” and that’s okay.
.
Sometimes we have days or weeks when we feel like we’re CRUSHING recovery. We’re not stressing about food, we’re eating what we want, we feel good in and about our bodies. It’s freakin awesome!
.
Buttttt sometimes we have days and weeks where we’re struggling hard. We’re counting calories, we’re skipping meals for one reason or another, we hide from our reflections in the mirrors.
.
I’m here to tell you - those hard times when it feels like we’re utterly failing at recovery? ❗️THEY ARE PART OF THE PROCESS, AND THEY STILL HAPPEN IN RECOVERY❗️
.
Please show yourselves grace and kindness through the hard parts of recovery. You’re not failing, you are experiencing. 🌻

  • I’ve been studying up on an interesting theory lately🧠
.
.
Basically it says that our brain is practically the same now as it was back when the world was uncivilized. Back when we lived in tribes and needed their acceptance. .
.
Back when there was a lot to fear! 🐅 .
.
Now, not so much...
.
.
But our brains just haven’t caught up to modern day living. 🍹 .
.
There ARE still a few seriously legitimate fears that nobody ever considers though! 👀 .
.
Social Anxiety is hard because we constantly fear:
.
.
What everyone thinks of us... Being judged, etc...
.
.
But the theory shows us how we’ve gotten things mixed up
.
.
We SHOULD fear living our whole life unhappy because we avoided everything and everybody.😶 We SHOULD fear spending the rest of our lives alone because we never worked on our confidence. 😶

Or... Working 40 to 50 years of our life at a low paying job that we don’t even like. Just because we’re too anxious to go out for what we want!😶
.
.
It’s time to start being afraid of the things nobody considers
.
.
And taking action to overcome our Social Anxiety 💪

  • Write yourself a love letter.  I did an exercise once during a Challenge Days event where we each stood on a chair with our group surrounding us and we were to shout all the things we loved about ourselves, and our group cheered us on.  It was incredibly awkward at first because of course most of us aren’t comfortable bragging ourselves up.  But I think it’s so important to speak positively to and about ourselves because we are hardwired to be hard on ourselves.  So instead of getting up on your kitchen chair and shouting all the things you love about yourself (although this is super fun and I highly recommend it), write yourself a love letter.  Write all the things you love about yourself, praise yourself for all the things you’re working through and all the things you’ve accomplished.  And if you’re comfortable enough, please share your experience with me, I’d love to hear how it went!! ❤️😘🥰 #selflovechallenge

  • What do you think is going to happen to you if you stop hiding your body?
.

It felt really freaking scary to post a photo of myself at first because I didn’t have the chiseled abs I had believed I needed to be worthy of being seen. I felt an internal need to explain to people what I eat so that they didn’t assume I just let myself go (whatever that means). I began imagining men seeing my pictures and wondered if I had ruined my chance of a man being able to see me as beautiful. I began to feel guilty because I didn’t know if showing my body was the “good Christian girl” thing to do. All these feelings and thoughts began spinning in my head and old wounds began to come to the surface. I remembered being made fun of for my curves in junior high. I remembered being told I would never make it in music if I didn’t lose 20 pounds. I remembered being asked to wear longer shirts to church so my stomach wouldn’t show because I was somehow responsible for the the youth boy’s ability to “stay pure.” I had to shift through (and still do) old memories and beliefs that were tied to how I looked. .

It was really scary to post photos of myself, and sometimes it still is. Sometimes I wonder if posting my stomach rolls is too much and sometimes I text a friend asking if a photo is too risqué before I post it. The fear of man is a real B. .

But the truth is, I haven’t had any negative effects to showing my body to the world. In fact, I’ve began feeling more at home and more at peace as I’ve navigated showcasing the most personal thing I have ownership of, my body. We’ve been through a lot together. A lot of really 💩 times and a lot of really high times. My guess is that you have too. So instead of being ashamed of the one thing in your life that has literally been committed to keeping you alive, I encourage you to start showcasing that body of yours, however that looks to you. Wear the crop top you’ve been too afraid to buy. Post the photo.  Have sex with your husband with the lights on. Let someone hug you tightly without thinking about how your body feels to them. .

This isn’t the time to hold back anymore. It’s time to start living and stop just existing 💜

  • So I’m in the bathroom getting ready to start my day, and it dawns on me that I missed my 2 year anniversary here in NYC. I moved March 19, 2017 after finishing a tour with One of my favorite people in the world. I had 300 dollars to my name, and it was the most scared I’d ever been in my life. God kept me. In every aspect. I’m so grateful for the people he put in my path to offer hope , inspiration and gratitude. I’m thankful for the people who are still by my side. Things always come back around full circle, and being in this show reminds me of why I decided to take the leap. One of these days I’m going to make my Broadway Debut. Until then , I’ll keep working my butt off to make every goal a reality. Here’s to two years and an off broadway debut. FINALLY. ☺️❤️ #actor #singer #dancer #musicaltheatre #bareapopopera #nyc #chicago #la #dreaming #workinghard #goals #roadtobroadway #love #selfcare #selfacceptance #notstopping #notquitting

  • Seashell drawn with colored pencils. My friend in Minneapolis sent me a dreamy pack of incense, and I have one lit. I have my blessed primicia candle burning, courtesy of Kim H., all my pretty gemstones are placed in a circle and I am picking one card at a time out of the tarot deck that my new Michigan gal-pal let me borrow, which was gifted to her 30 yrs ago by a Native American woman. It smells old. It feels special, the art is both beautiful and scary. I refer to my colorful crystal mandala oracle deck, pulling one at a time out, same as with the other deck. And then I let my heart feel a bit of joy and gain a bit of clarity. My time in Michigan has been a spiritual lesson for me, which is perfectly fine. I am truly learning what I need to learn. ($5000 worth!) What I am learning is that I have a lot of self respect, a lot of self love, I am good just as I am, and I have uncanny intuition. Hooray! And I know that I will continue to grow at my own pace and live in my own way.

  • I really thought I could change my body, keep it that way, and never need to eat another cookie again 🍪
.
But what happens when you’re “there” or trying to get “there” so you can finally like your body in a swimsuit 👙🤨 and then you’re restricting food so much that you start binge eating or develop other eating disorders? THAT’S A PROBLEM. And it’s exactly what happened to me 🙄
.
And I knew the answer that would solve it 👉🏼 STOP restricting 😩🥺 BUT THAT WAS NOT WHAT I WANTED. If I stopped dieting like I was, then my body would change and I would lose everything I worked so hard for. AND I WAS SO AFRAID OF “GOING BACK”.
.
Guys, just because your body changes back 👉🏼 doesn’t mean you have to have the same life that you desperately tried to change in the first place ❤️
.
YOU DON’T KNOW HOW YOU’RE GOING TO FEEL 😳 Real talk, when you choose yourself over your body, it’s really freakin hard (it is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done) AND it’s really amazing once you’ve realized you don’t need to change your body to be happy. And giving myself that opportunity to choose my mental happiness was the best 🎁 ever.
.
What I do know is 👉🏼 if you keep choosing to make your happiness depend on how small your belly gets, then you’re always going to be fighting a war with yourself.
.
A war against food‼️ (telling yourself what you can and can’t eat), your time‼️ (it’s a heck of a lot of work to stay this strict), your relationships‼️ (how can you give other people your attention when your routine is all consuming?), your body‼️ (how can you be happy when you constantly pick at what you’re trying to “fix”?)
.
YOU ARE FIGHTING AGAINST YOURSELF. And when you fight against yourself, a part of you always wins and a part of you always loses 🤦‍♀️
.
So if you want to keep fighting, know that this messy relationship with food won’t magically change on its own. IF YOU WANT TO STOP FIGHTING YOUR BODY, then you have a lot of things you can start doing to heal your relationship with food RIGHT NOW ❤️ free food freedom resources — in my bio 🥰

    Guys, just because your body changes back 👉🏼 doesn’t mean you have to have the same life that you desperately tried to change in the first place ❤️
    .
    YOU DON’T KNOW HOW YOU’RE GOING TO FEEL 😳 Real talk, when you choose yourself over your body, it’s really freakin hard (it is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done) AND it’s really amazing once you’ve realized you don’t need to change your body to be happy. And giving myself that opportunity to choose my mental happiness was the best 🎁 ever.
    .
    What I do know is 👉🏼 if you keep choosing to make your happiness depend on how small your belly gets, then you’re always going to be fighting a war with yourself.
    .
    A war against food‼️ (telling yourself what you can and can’t eat), your time‼️ (it’s a heck of a lot of work to stay this strict), your relationships‼️ (how can you give other people your attention when your routine is all consuming?), your body‼️ (how can you be happy when you constantly pick at what you’re trying to “fix”?)
    .
    YOU ARE FIGHTING AGAINST YOURSELF. And when you fight against yourself, a part of you always wins and a part of you always loses 🤦‍♀️
    .
    So if you want to keep fighting, know that this messy relationship with food won’t magically change on its own. IF YOU WANT TO STOP FIGHTING YOUR BODY, then you have a lot of things you can start doing to heal your relationship with food RIGHT NOW ❤️ free food freedom resources — in my bio 🥰
