  • Let’s talk boundaries.

Saying no is one of the most important boundaries we have.

As children, we freely said no. When we didn’t want to do something, when we didn’t want to engage with someone, or when we needed to have our own needs met before another.

Then we became conditioned.

We were taught to ignore our own needs to be polite or to please someone else.

Practiced over and over again, this became codependency. We are uncomfortable asserting our needs. We feel guilty at even the thought of disappointing someone else.

So as adults, we say yes when we mean no.

Or, we deliver our “no” with profuse apologies and explanations. Then, we sit with guilt for days over it.

This is how codependency manifests.

We have every right to say no. We should be practicing no regularly. No is both healthy and a confidence builder.

It’s also a great way to see the level of emotional maturity in our relationships. Healthy, mature adults can hear and respect “no” AND feel disappointed or any other emotion.

To practice setting the “no” boundaries, just become aware when you turn down invitations or requests. I was shocked at how many times I apologized or over explained when I first started. Sometimes I’d even apologize if I was in peoples way. All of this is just self awareness.

My conditioning was coming to the surface. “No” is your right. There is nothing to apologize for #selfhealers

  • Are you aware of the streets you walk in? Tonight I had to go up to Gozo for work and as I quickly walked back to my car I really enjoyed taking these 4 photo shots. Beauty is not always in nature, even man made structures can give us a mindful moment of gratitude! #mindfulness #gratitude #loveoutdoors #inspiration #consciousliving

  • Retrouver l'équilibre 🦋
Action/Réaction après de longues semaines passées en mode pilotage automatique.👻.
Ça y est on se bouge 🍑!
▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪▪ Rares ont été les moments d'équilibre. Dans ma vie j'ai plutôt été du genre tout ou rien,  trop ou pas assez, d'un extrême à l'autre.... Je suis tellement admirative😍 des personnes qui parviennent à tout concilier, doser  et qui semblent réussir dans chaque domaine de leur vie.  Comment font-elles ?🤨 De mon côté c'est n'importe quoi 😳. Il y a toujours un champ d'action qui prendra le dessus sur un autre.✋Parfois c'est vrai qu'il faut faire des sacrifices pour atteindre un objectif. Mais pour tenir dans la durée et maintenir une bonne énergie il faut aussi faire des pauses.😌 Aujourd'hui je comprends à quel point il est important de trouver une place et un temps pour tout, le plus régulièrement possible. Pour soi, pour sa santé, sa paix intérieure 🙏. Il est essentiel de faire des choses qui nous font réellement du bien, comme passer du temps avec les gens qu'on aime, se relaxer, faire du sport, respirer, méditer ...et ce malgré les contraintes du quotidien. 
L'équilibre est la clé du bonheur 🍀. #équilibre #vie #bonheur #fréquencevibratoire #reussite #tempsprecieux #developpementpersonnel #atttaction #gratitude #aimer  #meditation #sport #mouvement

  • The truth about holiday festivities? They can turn the calendar upside-down and leave me feeling downright DIZZY. (Anyone else relate??)
.
If we didn't stop to take a deep breath and savor the days that are whirring past us, it'd all be over like *that.* And more than anything, Jeff and I want to savor this season. Because truthfully, next year simply won't be the same. Oh, you can bet we'll be keeping up the family traditions we’re building... that pumpkin patch is going to know us by name by the time James is 5 years old. #determined
.
But Jeff and I are keenly aware that by next Halloween, our little Baby Shark will be even more independent and free than his happy little extroverted-heart is already. It will be amazing. And it will be new.
.
And so, we savor the season that we're in right now.
.
This season, where our team is thriving in our new studio space, I'm up to my eyeballs (and loving it) in podcast-work, and our toddler is spewing out new words every day. Because life inevitably means there will be change, and instead of resisting it (and succumbing to its dizzying effects), we're inviting it with hearts FULL of gratitude.
.
My friend, thank you for being here with us along this journey. In a season focused on thankfulness, Jeff and I have hugely grateful hearts for YOU. - E #savoristhenewhustle #gratitude

  • 11.14 • #gratitudegleanings • Labor of love. In 2017 I was still working but was nevertheless running out of funds to continue my Lyme and other health therapies and treatments. But I’ve always liked the idea of using my gifts and talents to earn what I can when I can. And with tea being a passion and words and images being my best medium, I got the idea to create “Tea Blessings” calendars for 2018. I chose 12 photographs I’d taken of tea things and then prayerfully wrote out a “blessing” for each month. The project was very “me” and I was giddy and gleeful to offer them to friends and family and friends of friends. Even a local tearoom took some to sell for me! And I was able to get 3 more months worth of treatments. Huge help.
.
Last year after losing my job and like 90% of my income, it made sense to do the calendars again, though they didn’t sell as well. And this year I wanted to do them again. .
In effort to bring in some money to help with all my medical expenses (and debt), yes. I mean, it’s practical. But that’s not the real drive. That’s not the passion. The beauty and the joy (and the incredible work!) is in the photographs and in the words. Painstakingly meting out the right words for each month to be a blessing to those who read them.
.
I was glad and grateful to wrap the calendars up Thursday night. Photos, words, colors, placement. Grateful to get the proof order in. Grateful for customer service to correct my paper stock choice error. Grateful for a princess of a friend who was a soundboard and an encouragement. Grateful for other friends who helped give feedback on the kitten calendar I added this year. And grateful for the challenge and laboring itself, for it makes the result all the more lovely.

  • I am 30 years old and my dad still remembers I used to call him 'Teddy' when I was a kid. It started with me practicing English and calling him 'daddy', then it morphed into 'teddy', and later on when "Many Men" by 50 Cent was released I kept singing the song to him as "Teddy Man" 😂. The convo reads:
.
Dad: look what I got myself
Me: show (me)
Dad: *pic of Teddy shoes*
Me: 😂
.
.
Enjoy the moments, folks, as little as they seem 🙂

  • I’m trying but doesn’t mean I’m perfect ..... big shout out to my dad who I honestly thought was taking the piss when he first started filming me but really he’s doing it for me to see my own progress, he doesn’t understand social media so he just wanted me to see my own improvement. If he can make the effort to do that for me while training himself I can make the effort to get up 3 times a week and drive for half hour to get to him. P.S SORRY FOR THE SQUEAKING WEIGHTS 🙈 #thankyou #gratitude #grateful #weights #training #alannajoelweightlossjourney #progressnotperfection #showup

  • Reposted from @victoriabfeldman Kindness is something we are all capable of in varying degrees.😇
When we tell our stories, at least when I do, I start out kind, patient and fair. But, if the person I am talking to or about rejects my good intentions and lashes out, my kindness turns to defending my feelings, which then can turn to anger.😡
Anger is a way of remaining in control. It doesn't really bring us what we set out to accomplish, but it is such a strong, destructive emotion that we can go from kindness to anger in a red hot moment.
In highlighting some of the insights, I have witnessed in myself and in others who start out seeking a harmonious outcome, when we are triggered (it can be a few words, a look, a perceived critique), we have a knee-jerk reaction to provocation that is underneath what we are experiencing in the moment.
This internal dynamic can literally unleash a host of emotions that have nothing to do with the other person's intent.🤨
Anger is a low road to self-empowerment and a dead-end road to self-love.💕
So, remember, when your intentions are to relay your feelings to another and you desire those feelings to come from kindness, stay steady. Don't let your fragile ego have power over you.
In my book, Hello, Beautiful-How the Power of Self Love Heals & Transforms You Forever, I dedicate an entire chapter on Anger, complete with exercises for the reader to do to learn how to avail themselves of this potent, self-defeating, self-medicating defense.(You can purchase it on Amazon)
Eventually, we all have to see our real selves, the good, the bad and the ugly.
I love you ❤💚💜

  • Hey! Have we met?⁣
⁣
There are so many new faces here this week! Whether you’re new to me or we’ve known each other for years, I’m so happy we’re connected here 😊⁣
⁣
Here are three things you might not know about me...⁣
⁣
1 - What I do! I help others to conquer stress, experience more energy and freedom, and skyrocket their confidence so they can unapologetically thrive in their work, their relationships, and in their bodies.⁣
⁣
2 - I love going out for events and get-togethers, and I love nights in with Netflix and wine. Latest obsession: Brooklyn Nine-Nine (*in Terry Crews voice* “Nine-Nine!”)⁣
⁣
3 - My first job was coaching middle school volleyball 🏐 ⁣
⁣
Tell me - what’s one thing I might not know about you?

  • This is why so many complex trauma survivors have physical illness issues. Complex trauma survivors commonly also suffer Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Pain, Adrenal Fatigue, plus many other physical illness.

Many of us who suppressed the trauma and needed emotions, have long term health issues.

This combined with the affect the trauma itself has on the survivor – physically, emotionally, psychologically, can be very severe.

This requires compassion.

And why I strongly advise people to ignore any advice that involves avoidance of trauma – as is commonly expressed by new age attitudes, and many religious attitudes.

Avoidance, suppression of trauma and the needed emotions about it – is never healthy long term.

    Avoidance, suppression of trauma and the needed emotions about it – is never healthy long term.
