Trying to make sense of fragmented memories and dissociation is confusing and exhausting. Even more so before I had an idea of what was going on. I edited the photo before I had words to explain living with fragmented pieces of my psyche. When something traumatic happens to you and your brain gets overwhelmed by it, a piece of your psyche will fragment or dissociate. Often, especially as a child, that piece of your psyche stays fragmented and will "react" to the world you're living in now without you being consciously aware of it. This can cause a huge amount of distress in daily life without you necessarily knowing why. Anxiety? Depression? Anger issues? Behavior that just doesn't fit? Yeah, if you've been through trauma you most likely understand this pretty well. When I left my marriage I kept saying, "I feel like I'm just....not. Like I don't exist anymore. Sucked into a vacuum. I feel like I'm gone." I don't feel that way anymore but I've struggled with feeling broken into pieces and almost but not quite put back together.
I found a book that helped me start a journey of actual healing. Healing the Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors by Janina Fisher. Listening to it, so many things made sense that I've just lived with. The parts of myself stuck in mistrust and pain and terror and anger...they have been reacting to life and I didn't know I could make it stop. It's a work in progress but it IS working. And this picture of my face? This picture is very close to how I've envisioned myself for a long time but the pieces of me are so different and I couldn't make them cohesive. Now I'm learning how, among many other beautiful things of late. It's a process. Always a process but one I refuse to give up on.
Do not give up. Do not give in. We got this and we will be stronger together. #ptsd#cptsd#life#perspective#passion#happiness#gratitude#mentalhealth#mentalillness#trauma#anxiety#depression#selfacceptance#selflove#bereal#bevulnerable#stormyjon#posttraumaticgrowth#copingmechanism#domesticabuse#stronger#traumarecovery#anxietyrecovery#depressionsupport#selfaccept
Leaving the studio today I caught a glimpse of blue sky which brought me joy. It was a good reminder that what we are looking for in life — happiness, contentment, peace, is right here, in the present moment. We get so caught up in our life that we don’t take the time to pause, and notice the many blessings we already have. #gratitude#columbiagorgeyoga

This sweet boy of mine has been interested in the military since he was little. He carried around Military history books everywhere he went. Today he enlisted in the Army. I couldn’t be more proud or happier for him. I love you @wyattandre#myboy#love#gratitude

Remember those long rainy weeks, non stop, can’t do anything, wishing for a sunny day so you can take your activities outside.
Well the beautiful lesson for me today was seeing everyone smiling and talking so positively about the rain finally coming down in Australia.
Because we’ve needed it for so long, we prayed and hoped for it.
Now that it’s hear, we can almost take a breath of air and thank the clouds above for their work.
What you want now could be based on where you are now or who you’re surrounded by. There’s nothing wrong with wanting change, hot days, rainy days etc. All I ask is that you remember, nothing is forever. Weather changes, lives change, relationships and circumstances.
20 yrs ago when I was freshly divorced & my ex didn’t pay child support or daycare fees as per the divorce agreement, my bank account was pretty slim because I had to pay what he skated on.
One of my work colleagues saved his soda cans & I cashed them in for gas $$. Sometimes now, especially in winter, I say a little prayer of gratitude for a full tank of gas. #Gratitude#Perseverance#MomPower 💪💫🦄
LOS SIETE PRINCIPIOS HERMÉTICOS
4. Principio de Polaridad:
"Todo es doble, todo tiene dos polos; todo, su par de opuestos: los semejantes y los antagónicos son lo mismo; los opuestos son idénticos en naturaleza, pero diferentes en grado; los extremos se tocan; todas las verdades son semi verdades todas las paradojas pueden reconciliarse". El cuarto Principio es como un puente entre el monismo y el dualismo. Explica que todo tiene su par de opuestos, sus dos polos, como el calor y el frío, el mal y el bien, lo negro y lo blanco. Este principio nos hace comprender que son una misma cosa, separada sólo por una cuestión de grados
Debemos tener presente que la dualidad es transmutable en esencias similares y no distintas, es decir, el amor se puede transmutar en odio, pero nunca en un color negro, en frío, ... Y si teniendo presente que los polos negativos son de más baja vibración que los positivos, seremos capaces de conseguir transmutar nuestra mente en algo mucho más elevado.
Siguiendo el precepto de que Todo es Mente, significa que podremos hacer de nuestro mundo un mundo mucho más feliz y armonioso. Debemos lograr esto a través del pensamiento positivo, transmutando nuestra mente hacia la alegría.
Energy attracts the like, what we produce energy wise will come back to us and so we have to be very aware of what we create and most importantly what energy we are expanding on. .
Check out my reflection on the power of never lowering our objectives and how energy plays a role in that process. .

I am so genuinely grateful for all of my friends & family. I know I can’t text everyone everyday and express how grateful I am for certain individuals...but my heart is warmed by everyone who supports me and stops to ask how I’m doing. This is kind of out of nowhere, but ... I wouldn’t be where I am today with out the love my people show me. I swear the people in my corner are so exclusive and I’m filled with contentment, satisfaction, and pleasure... & for the haters? 🤐 go head and swipe ;) #gratitude#loyalty#nofakelove
Waiting for a convenient time in your life to start something new is silly. Something always comes up. “I can’t start this lifestyle change because the sky is out” or “I can’t do this, I’m stressed today”. We make excuses for ourselves because we don’t want to be uncomfortable. •
I’m starting a Daniel Fast today. I really wanted to wait a few weeks because, I had bought a bunch of food. Then I realized, the main reason I didn’t want to it is because I’m comfortable. I didn’t want to change anything. Yesterday, I felt I needed to seek something new. •
I’ll add the link of what I’m doing in my bio. I’m doing this fast for clarity. I’ll tell you how I feel throughout. Also, I’ll show before and after photos as well. Change isn’t bad, just scary at first.
Throw out them old ideas, a lot of them really hurt you...yet are disguised as looking out for you or something you need/deserve. The ego is in survival mode and thinks it has your best interest in mind, but some of those instincts are flawed thinking! 🙏
My happy place! I always feel grateful 🙏 to work in the outdoor office. Such a beautiful day to enjoy the beauty and bounty of nature. Wherever you are, stop and appreciate the beauty that surrounds you.
Big love 💖

🖤 Ma table est remplie de koalas et kangourou...est c'est parfait! 🖤
Enfin, je commence à rattraper mon retard sur mes commandes! Gastro et virus inconnu nous ont rendus les choses plus difficiles cette semaine... Je poste toutes vos commandes demain!
12 cartes et 21 affiches!! Je vous remercie tous pour votre générosité! Je n'ai pas encore fait le total de💲 ramassé pour l'organisme @wireswildliferescue mais je vous tiens au courant, c'est promis!
En passant, je continue de ramasser des fonds jusqu'à la fin janvier, alors continuez de passer des commandes!
🤍 You have nothing to lose being who you are, and everything to gain 🤍
we as human beings love to create an image of who we are on social media. We never take the time to open up about the things in life that we deal with. So many of us are scared to vulnerable in today’s world.. I always promised myself that I would never hide who I am behind the screen of my phone. I deal with stress, anxiety, insecurity, vulnerability, trust, just like every single one of you. I don’t want to create an image of someone I’m not, but rather someone who wasn’t scared to be loved for their flaws or imperfections.
I encourage you guys to embrace yourself, and love yourself for everything that you, but more importantly everything that you’re not. Don’t be afraid to be yourself, that’s what makes you who you are. No one else can ever take that away from you.
Recently I’ve been dealing with a lot of hardship, but within that time, through opening I’ve found that people can genuinely support you when they know who are on the inside. Love yourself, value yourself, be that beautiful person that you are. Thank you, for always allowing me to use this platform to open up and share my story. It’s not easy to do this, but I know the more real I am about it, the less I feel alone. 🤍
That’s the world we live in. 🌏
Creating attention? So be it.
There are people out there that would pay a lot of money to get their life back, to get their family back, to get their self worth, a healthy mental and physical state back.
And there are those that would pay $120k for a banana that’s taped on the wall at an art Basel show. That’s crazy right? 😳
You know what’s crazy? 🤯 The amount of time we spend on complaining - complaining about what we don’t have versus being grateful for what we DO have. 🤦🏻♂️
I’m sure you wish you had $120,000 in your bank account to do something a lot wiser with. And that’s what this coaching opportunity can provide to you with. 🙌🏽 Depending on your own efforts and commitment, of course.
Here is who I’m looking for. 🔍
✅ Someone who dreams BIG and believes that life is more than just a 9 to 5 grind.
✅ Someone who wishes he/she could travel more and have the flexibility/freedom, but is currently limited financially.
✅ Someone who wants to feel incredible - physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and financially - and is willing to do the work to make that happen.
✅ Someone to work from home (or anywhere) or wants to start a side hustle with the possibly to grow that income into a full time hustle.
✅ Someone is ready to go ALL IN!
Is this YOU? 👀
Do you know this person?
I am opening 15 spots for a mentorship get-together. ✊🏽
I’ll teach you the business, I’ll give you all the resources you need and WE can grow this business TOGETHER. 🌱
Be excited, be hungry, be YOU... and I have no doubt you’ll win. 🙌🏽
If this resonated with you, DM me. 📩 Let’s chat.
I’ll gladly spare all the time you need to set you up for success. 👌🏽You just have to REALLY WANT IT!

Hay una frase de Sigmund Freud que dice: he sido un hombre muy afortunado en la vida,nada me fue.facil .
Durante muchos años no podía comprenderla ,me hacia ruido en la cabeza ya que desde muy chica tuve que lidiar con situaciones que no correspondían con mi edad ,no voy a aburrir enumerandolas pero créanme muy duras y claramente me hacían sentir en inferioridad de condiciones frente a los demás.
Así llevé adelante la mayor parte de mi vida,creyendo me menos ,por supuesto esto estaba en mi inconsciente pero se reflejaba en cada situación de mi vida ,en cada cosa que emprendia, siempre corriendome a un costado dejando lugar a los demás ,creyendo seguramente que no merecía más..
Muy loco cuando lo pienso ahora ,pero así de real fue.
Recorrí un laaargo camino para llegar a lo que soy hoy,atravesando terapia y Yoga en los últimos siete años.,lo que además de ayudarme a tomar las riendas de mi vida,muy naturalmente me permitió saber que podía compartir con otros esta maravillosa filosofia,que créanme nonpara de hacerme ver lo que soy y lo que cada uno de nosotros es en esta vida.
Tengo mucho por sanar pero acá estoy más firme que nunca,ya sin miedos y límites absurdos .Yo se que puedo también,cada uno de nosotros puede y se merece ir por lo que desea,pero principalmente es uno mismo el que debe saberlo
Nada me fue facil y haber llegado hasta acá habiéndome sentido muchos años con ganas de renunciar a todo ,confirma aún más mi fortaleza y eso me hace una persona muy afortunada.
