#10YearChallenge⁣
I used to hide behind my insecurities to the point where my grandmother LITERALLY thought I was MUTE 😶⁣
⁣
I just didn’t talk because I didn’t have to.⁣
I had a twin sister to do the talking for me.⁣
⁣
I didn’t have a voice, nor an opinion.⁣
Frankly, I didn’t want one.⁣
⁣
See, changing who we are is HARD & requires a lot of hard fucking WORK. I had spent years cultivating this quiet, bookish, short girl persona and I was going to be damned if I let that go.⁣
⁣
But the one thing they don’t tell you about these old personas - from when you’re a wee little babe and can’t even think straight most days - is that they’re FALSE.⁣
⁣
Better put 👉🏼 FALSE TRUTHS.⁣
⁣
Now, I look at myself and see someone who’s:⁣
💥 strong⁣
💥 capable⁣
💥 openly speaks her mind⁣
💥 isn’t afraid of a challenge⁣
💥 doesn’t take other people’s shit⁣
💥 has learned to VALUE HERSELF⁣
⁣
Powerlifting 🏋🏻‍♀️ helped me to find my voice.⁣
It gave me that CONFIDENCE I needed to become the person I - proudly - am today.⁣
⁣
And, honey, I KNOW that you want that, too.⁣
⁣
👏🏼 It’s why I’ve opened up FIVE 🖐🏼 1:1 coaching spots for the month of January. You can apply to join the STRENGTH GANG with the link in my bio 📲❤️⁣
⁣
Because, let’s face it, you don’t want to look back in another ten years and think, “Fuck, why did I let myself GO?” Put you first.⁣
⁣
👇🏼 What false truths are you COMMITING to getting rid of?⁣

I was thinking about writing about graffiti this morning & for some reason as I started to think I once again didn’t even .... so then I see this and it reminded me of the other thing I wanted to write about. As it happens there is a greater and greater lapse in what you think versus the reality we all are in. My latest hero is #jaymecloss It’s crazy enough that I don’t need to use much imagination to know some of what she went through. Triggers: I immediately thought to myself that’s how much of a hoe I am that I be falling in love with ... the mother of my child and the fact that I loved her and had a child with her makes me feel like those people that marry serial killers and the like. The fact that child is still living with her... isn’t it said Charles Manson didn’t kill anyone himself. I know the strength it takes to get yourself out of a situation like #jaymecloss was in however I couldn’t imagine having to do that at that age and that’s only having reference to knowing there’s a possibility of something else. I hope she’ll be OK however ... I literally just got triggered into feeling like nothing more than a trashy hoe for having been abused so... Urgh and then it’s like can’t I at least act like a trashy hoe without it being such a ... yep, and that’s why it’s difficult for so many to understand. Not everyone has spent that amount of time with people who are willing, capable and able to do things like that. Facts: the mother of my child abused as a child, was diagnosed with a mental health disorder and when her drinking and violence where affecting our child and I finally told her and was serious that if she didn’t get help that day I was going to call the police she instead made up an entire story about me being an abuser and despite psychological testing results and other evidence that she has abused my daughter she still has custody. Do you have any idea what it takes to not only get me but also get various other people to do exactly everything she’d want to cover up all the things she’s done? 
I do. It’s very similar to what it takes to kill two people and kidnap a child. #swenyandomemior

Depression doesn’t discriminate! Sometimes the people you think are carefree, happy individuals are suffering in silence. They suffer quietly because we don’t live in a society where people can talk openly about their mental health without fear of being judged or feelings of shame. This needs to change! .

I wasn't sure if I was going to do the #10yearchallenge because I'm filled with self loathing about my weight gain but then I remembered I can just pick flattering photos. Plus no one but me cares. 
In the last 10 years I have finally learned to let go of certain things that contributed massively for my chronic, severe depression, I completed a degree in Psychology, met the love of my life, got diagnosed with fibromyalgia, got engaged and bought a house so swings and roundabouts.

Today I was definitely the fire hydrant. I woke up this morning with crippling anxiety and stayed in bed cuddling the cats. I didn't volunteer at the homeless shelter as I normally do, and felt guilty for letting people down. 
I've migrated down to the sofa and I'm now cuddling the dogs. Today the demons are winning so far. But that's not to say I can't readdress the balance.

A chance message from a friend made me reflect on how even though I still have down days every now and then, I never spiral as low as I did in 2016. I put that down to good nutrition and reiki. 
Why did anxiety hit me so hard this morning? I don't know. It could be a number of things, but I'm trying to remind myself that now is not the time to be forcing myself to understand it. It's tiring trying to master my brain and my thoughts, but I'm doing my best.

So today I am rolling with the punches, trying to be as kind to myself as possible, and taking some time out to nurture my soul. Maybe by tonight I'll be snuggling with my demons instead of trying to fight them. ·

A gentle reminder for my fellow anxiety-ridden overthinkers and worriers.
💚
Are you jumping to conclusions? Making assumptions? Perceiving your thoughts as facts?
💚
Take a breath and slow down. Ground yourself by focusing on sensing what’s in your surroundings — identify things you can see, touch, smell, hear, and taste until you’re able to calm your mind.
💚
Remember: thoughts are not always facts.

It really isn’t the lions, and tigers, and bears that were scared of anymore - it’s people.⠀
🙊⠀
In today’s Simply Happy podcast episode I’m talking all about social anxiety.⠀
👀⠀
I used to care so much about what other people thought - but instead of closing off from people and avoiding them - I put up a massive wall, got super defensive, and tore myself down.⠀
✋🏻⠀
If you worry about how other people perceive you to the point that it becomes a detriment to you the way you live your life you’ve gotta step in!⠀
💫⠀
It’s no secret that you cannot control how other people think or see the world. ⠀
✨⠀
So take a small step today away from making assumptions about what other people with think of you do x,y, or z.⠀
☀️⠀
Step away from going out of your way again and again so you can avoid any negative experience.⠀
⭐️⠀
And step TOWARDS confidence, self empowerment, and easing your mind.⠀

Today I’m really not feeling it. After yesterday’s news plus the awful cold and wet weather, I decided the best thing to do was wrap up warm, make a sanctuary on the sofa and crochet and watch some @cw_supernatural ! And I’m slowly getting there.
.
I should be used to getting bad news regarding my health but it still sucks every single time!
.
So I’ve started crocheting a blanket, which hopefully I can sell, and watching my current fav show. Thank you @jensenackles and @jaredpadalecki for cheering me up! .

Not all days are pretty and shiny. Some are dark and gloomy, and that’s fine.....as long as you remember not to get stuck in that place. Does anyone have any methods they use on their bad days? Tried and tested advice??
.
I hope everyone else is having a great day tho, and sending love to you all

I didn’t think being open and honest was courageous. I just thought it was the right thing to do. • I’m still not sure how I feel about it. But I know that living with mental illness is such a brave thing to do • So I’d just like to remind you again how proud I am of you. And how much you are loved ❤️" • • • #maketheuncomfortablecomfortable #truestory #mentalwellness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthsupport #unique #mentalhealthstigma #mentalillnessawareness #psychiatry #recoverywarrior #recoverymode #recoveryjourney #supportgroup #mentalwellness #selfhealing #womenwhohustle #embraceyourself #putyourselffirst #godisincontrol #godismystrength #godswill #godisamazing

Is it a good idea? Or is it a God idea?
.
I'm so learning discernment in this season!!
.
This week my work days have overflowed! New inquiries for teaching bible yoga. New clients for our product line. I booked some meetings for the nonprofit. And I had a phone consult with my editor.
.
Yes. It's official. I have an editor!!!! Which means more work 💁 which I love.
.
But discernment.
.
In the middle of it all, I paused yesterday to pray. The verse that came to me was Matthew 28:30. My life's work - the Christian life in general - it's all about the making of disciples. It's The Great Commission our Lord and Savior left for us. To love others well.
.
And it was a wonderful reminder. While I'm beyond excited for all that life is offering me right now, I have a command to uphold.
.
So, I spent my entire evening pouring into this girl. We brought play-dough to her therapy session, and it went great. We were able to communicate about social skills and how to form friendships and all the things that typical parents don't need to worry about (I know this because I had my Mild first! lol). Next we'll work on focus, because I'm not sure I can make disciples and go through 45 minutes of dressing them (her) each morning! (Just being honest.)
.
As I sit down to a brand new day, work is bustling and I love every bit of what I'm doing. Yet, I'm reframing it so much. I want to keep my heart in the right place. Am I making disciples... even at home? What do I need to do to pour into me so that I can pour out? If you're on a similar adventure as I am, I hope that your answer is yes and that you're doing what it takes to stay whole here. That no matter how your career begins to flourish, you are pouring out love to your greatest joys. Parenting can be tough (really, really tough) but it's also the most rewarding opportunity the Lord has ever gifted me.
.
Praying for your work life and your home life, and for your WHOLE life to be rooted in Love today, sweet friends! Happy Wednesday. xox J.
