Ever feel like your hiding, like you're wearing a mask?

There are only a few things that will hold you back from taking action on that idea, goal, or dream that you have —
1. Fear of rejection/ judgement
2. Fear of uncertainty/ Discomfort
3. Stuck in Habits/Patterns
4. Feeling Overwhelmed
5. Lack of confidence
6. Fear of failure
7. Lack of clarity or motivation —
The quicker you can recognize which one it is, the quicker you can do something about it .

"Be a cactus in a world of delicate flower"
Living with disabilities is no cake walk. It tests every part of you, most of all your soul. Some days are like a never ending desert, bearing the unforgiving heat and harsh sands against us. But we are strong and we are tough!
The cactus represents longevity, endurance, and the ability to thrive in trying environments. Despite the heavy hand it's been dealt, the cactus overcomes, never giving up on it's quest for a good life. I can't think of any other symbol that describes living with disability better!
So in a world full of delicate, not resilient people who give up at the first sign of struggle, own your challenges and the amazing ability to overcome they have given you, and be the beautiful, strong cactus you are!

⚡⚡FLASHBACK FRIDAY ⚡⚡
4 years ago, my cousin @ladyg16 asked me to join her on an adventure with her friends to an obstacle course. The excitement overshadowed what I was setting myself up for. The minute we got to the place and I found out exactly what we were doing, I had so many thoughts running through my mind and wanted to back down. There was nothing but trees🌳😳. When we started the course, it was okay, but I noticed at every level, we were going higher and higher. This is where I started to panic because I am afraid of heights. I wanted to back down but couldn't because we were already far along and I didn't want to look like a sucker 😩. Then came ziplining which was the only way to get across 🤦🏾♀️. As you can see, I was terrified! But I did it! I did it probably about 4 more times. It was an exhilarating feeling! I was proud at that very moment! I realized at the end that moment of fear was just temporary because if I didn't go through with it, I would have regretted it. Would I do it again? Slight chance 🤣. .
"Fear is nothing more than an obstacle that stands in the way of progress. In overcoming our fears, we can move forward, stronger and wiser within ourselves."

Louise Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life and founder of Hay House said it years before anyone else: a belief is a thought that you keep thinking over and over until you start believing it. A thought can be changed. @vitaldirectives

Before we can start working on the new big project in our life, whether it’s build a business, start a new relationship, health goals, etc. In order to move into our new place...we have to first be brutally honest with ourselves and admit we have an old pattern of thinking that has been limiting our ability to achieve anything at our highest level. I understand what your going through and feel your frustrations. It seems to be an ongoing struggle that we have to get up and fight everyday and all through the day. Success is not handed to us , but conquered daily. Where there is no vision the people perish. #demoday #overcome #mindset #mentalshackles

Last week I lost two very influential women in my life, my grandmothers. The things that people said about both of them was nothing short of amazing. It got me to thinking of the question....What kind of legacy will you leave behind? Will it be one that people talk highly of or one of strong faith in all circumstances? We should strive daily to live our best life and to make a difference wherever we go, so that we leave a positive mark in the world. As you go throughout the rest of your life, remember the simple question, what will be your legacy? #foodforthought #makeadifference #livealegacy #overcome #adapt #livelife #lovelife #persevere #faith #postivevibes #nevergiveup #nothingisimpossible 🤘🏻🤙🏻🤟🏻♿️❤️🙏🏻

Growing pains is real!
Life is real!
Challenges are real!
Struggle is real!
Excuses are NOT real!
Every problem in life truly has a solution. We just need to face the reality of the situation instead of running away from it or sweeping it under the rug like it doesn’t exist.
You all know where my back situation was a year and half ago. For a bit, I had no clue on how I was going to overcome this. I’ve never been in this type of situation. It was a bit scary to think I wasn’t going to be mobile again like I use to. I could of ignored it. I could of swept it under the rug.
I needed a solution. I needed to figure out my new way of living. It took some time. It took a lot of listening. It took a lot of understanding. And it took a lot of humility.
Once I decided to take a step back. The game completely changed for me. I took a personal oath to reinvent myself with no regrets or thoughts of who I use to be.
That people, took a lot to do. It wasn’t an easy transition. It was hard. I’m not going to lie. It was a process.
The mind IS the strongest muscle in your body next to the heart. For REAL!!
I’m here today breaking personal barriers because of a decision I made back in Jan of 2018. I, no longer, see myself like I use to. I see myself better and greater than I’ve EVER been in my life. Why? Because I let God be in control along with myself. God can’t do it alone. I needed to do my part. And I am. That’s why I thank God everyday for this opportunity and I won’t let him down this time.
Yesterday I was out of it. And like I always say “everyday is a new day no matter what”
I crushed today’s workout with personal goals being reached and speed being escalated.
It didn’t happen overnight, it happened overTIME.
Patience is the speed of Life. Never forget that.
Have Faith, Not Fear

FORMS by @ritamtalukdar_88 ( Check the entire blog featuring photographers who have worked on portraying mental health through photos. Link in bio.)
_ "Depression is like a sadness and it's like a left out feeling. It's a sort of melancholy that only the dead ones and the left out hollowed ones are blessed to enjoy. It's only a process to learn to appreciate everything that shines.My mind always responds strangely with the amount of happiness and pain it receives. As if the transition of my body often plays in between shadow and light. It often responds in terms of the fluctuation of feelings that either makes me feel super worthless or helps me to seek for better meaning of life. This high or super low often tends to affect the responsive behaviours towards other personalities, who understands the feeling and wants to come close but are often pushed away, unintentionally. What I believe, till now it has been dangerous but its slowly going to put me down into an infinite endeavour to cause serious injury." - Ritam.
We, as human beings, are never complete even if all of our feelings are seen to be. Within each of us there lies a small portion of unsatisfactory statement that slowly over the passing time, turns onto us. Even if we try to be significant we find some part of it to be missing. This feeling of "lack of being" kind of acted as a strange phenomenon, in which people like us lie submerged.

This past week has been a reminder that recovering from Breast Implant Illness is an ongoing process that will take time. I've had a couple lymphatic massages to help move the toxins out of my tissues and it put me into the mother of all flares ups. I have inflammation in all my joints from my neck to the bottoms of my feet. The fatigue, brain fog, weakness, and vertigo have never returned since the day I had surgery so I am encouraged that the heal is real. I just wish I could go back and teach my 20 year old self how to practice self love and acceptance. The crazy thing is, I got implants to feel better about myself, but it took years of illness and going through explant surgery for me to finally decide that I love myself just the way I am. If you are thinking about getting implants, please learn from my mistake. IT'S SO NOT WORTH IT! YOU ARE PERFECT ALREADY! 💜 #breastimplantillness #justsayno #loveyourself

Do you know the ONE single thing that solves all of our problems? 👆
The answer is simple. 👇
There is no one single thing that can solve all of our problems and work at any time, for each and every one of us, exactly the same.🔀
Let me give you a few examples. 👇
You can say that exercise is good. ☑️
Yes it is, but not if you have an injury. ⚠️
You can say spinach is good. ☑️
Yes, it is, but if you don't have problems with the oxalates in it. ⚠️
You can say alcohol is bad. ☑️
Yes it is, but only if you make your liver work too much to get rid of it. ⚠️
You could say that $100 million could solve all your problems. 💸
Yes, they might, but not if there is no cure for your health problem. 🤕
If there would be 1 single thing that could work all the time for each and every little thing in our life, guess how you'd feel? 🤔
Glad? Happy? Excited? 👀
That's what went through my mind as well. Who wouldn't enjoy having the one-size-fits-all problem-solving tool? 🔓
But you know how we'd really feel if we had something like that? 💭
Totally, entirely, extremely and completely ... bored. 😪
That's because one of our fundamental human needs is the need for variety. ♠️♣️♥️♦️
We can also call it surprise. 🎲
If you don't believe me, look at some of the companies and businesses that are making the most amount of money.💰
Why would someone go to the casino when they KNOW that the highest probability is for them to lose money?🎰
Why would someone start scrolling on Instagram, when they KNOW that eventually they might start feeling bad because everyone is on vacation and looking amazing all the time? 📲
Why do we even try out new food products on the market, when we know some of them are unhealthy and not revolutionary in any way? 🍴
The answer, in most cases, is that we try out different things because we need some variety in our life. 🛍️
We feel good with our current morning routine, but what if it can get better? 📈
We always tweak things and try new things out. 🔧
However, the main problem appears when we try something out and it doesn't work. 😖

Whenever a man starts to talk about how strong, awesome, proficient, smart, successful, or powerful he is...my respect level for him begins to drop quick.
A man should not have to boast about his accompmishments, his actions should speak for him.
It's been said before but is worth repeating: a wolf never has to tell anyone he is a wolf.
Everyone automatically knows.

feeling these roots 📿🌲❣ my sweet bae @jimmyjphotography comes home todaaaay. we both had some much needed alone time nesting and connecting with our souls. he spent the week away photographing @glaciernps and then working in Idaho while I stayed at home with our pups. nesting, purging, meditating, merging. slowing. moving. creating. journaling. reading. bathing. crying. sighing. smiling. feeling the embrace of the ebb and flow. this full moon hit hard with the consistency card 🌝 #blessmothernature she always be knowing annnnd goddess coach @shaynahiller 🦄 this mama is a gem 💎find people that totally embrace, encourage and enjoy you. they are your greatest asset beginning, middle, and end 💫 finding yourself in great transition but don't have access to your people? 😶 no worries, you always have your breath 🌬 ⏳try 3 minutes of alternate nostril breathing: 🧘🏽♀️find a comfortable seated posture somewhere safe & quiet, spine straight 🧘🏽♀️
👌 place right hand in gian mudra [pointer finger to thumb, other 3 fingers long] resting on your right knee 👃🏽use your left thumb to block off your left nostril, other 4 fingers point to the sky 👃🏽
inhale long and deep through your right nostril, when you can no longer inhale block off your right nostril with pinky or index finger 🤙
open left nostril exhale long and deep 💨 inhale through the same open nostril 🌱 block your nostril with thumb, open other side, exhale and continue deepening your breath inhaling and exhaling while alternating nostrils 🧠 continuing to balance the emotions, gain focus & clarity, activate your parasympathetic nervous system for a more relaxed state of being. #peace

The Walking Legend - I make the impossible possible 🚶
From the outside looking in you see beauty, the style, the glamour but what you don’t realize is how much pain is really in this photo.
What it took to get to this moment here. You think this just happened over night, you think it was easy, you’re sadly mistaken.
People say I’m lucky, that’s not true, I persevered to get here, I fought to get here, I crawled to get here, if you want your dreams, get ready for a brawl because your dream isn’t going to just hand itself to you. 🥊
Only the real ones know the pain this photo holds. 📷: @jonathanchia00 Look this guy up he’s one of the best in the industry and he knows the history of this photo. 🏔

No one likes to experience failure or obstacles in our professional or entrepreneurial journey but they are necessary to learn, grow and be successful. Mistakes are going to happen, tragedies will befall us all, don't give up but find a work around.
