Naket, skört, sårbart... det är okej att vara det ibland och det är okej att visa sig så för omvärlden. Det är fruktansvärt läskigt, tungt och smärtsamt men är det något som jag tagit till mig under mina värsta år, mina värsta stunder så är det att jag inte är ensam. Jag vet också att dom gånger som jag känt mig ensam i allt jag gått igenom så har jag önskat, bett på mina bara knän efter att någon bara satt sig framför mig, blottat sig så som jag och sagt till mig att det är okej. Någon som blottar sig själv och sin själ för att visa att det är okej och du är inte ensam, du är aldrig någonsin ensam. Jag minns och känner mig ännu ibland som den där unga flickan som fick gå igenom allt som livet kastade åt henne, och jag känner mig ännu ibland ensam, men jag är så stolt över flickan i mig som överlevde och tog sig hit för att idag vara den personen jag själv hade behövt. Vi är alla någon gång nakna, sköra och sårbara.. och det finns alltid någon där ute som behöver få se att det finns fler. Kan jag vara den personen för någon så är det värt att blotta mig med allt vad det innebär och med all smärta som vandrar längs varje litet ben i min kropp. För du är inte ensam!🖤 .
You do not have to be alone in your pain. You deserves to have a voice, be heard, be seen, and to have a source of strength in your life.
.Fear does a great job at taking control over our thoughts and feelings. This controlling emotion tells us to “hide in our shame of past experiences”, and to “fear change”. Although, change is uncomfortable, I believe that we can stand together against fear. It is my desire that my office can be a safe place with no judgement so that our true selves can be free to express our deep harbored experiences.
.Through Attachment-Based and Emotionally Focused therapy it is my hope for you and your family to feel connected and supported with one another, to be accepted for who you are, to be a valued member of your family, and to feel appreciated by those closest to you.
.We are relational beings who innately desire connection with others. So, let’s walk together as we regain trust in our interactions with the world around us, and learn to live our most empowered lives.
The night my mum died, I went out into our back garden and simply looked up at the stars for a while.
In that moment, I needed the comfort that they always brought me.
I felt that the stars up in the sky represented all of the people the world has lost over the years.
That particular night, there was one star shining a little more brightly than the rest.
Maybe it was her, telling me she got up there safely.

The truth about my wedding... And why we eloped
While we’re now going on our 3rd year of marriage & a few of you have seen these photos before I felt it was important that I share as most of my mom friends are either not yet married though it seems they’ve been with their partner forever or looking to get married again
So here it is...
My husband and I were 8 years and 2 kids in when we finally tied the knot, and those years were filled with all the on’s, off’s, up’s, and downs that come with young love but I’m great full for each one because they got us were we are today
The entire thing from our marriage license to dinner cost $200!!!
Statistics show that the less you spend on your wedding the longer you will stay married, and I know I don’t have to tell y’all about divorce rates these days,that being said saving as much as possible on your big day so you can put more into your big life is something to seriously consider
If you want to know more about how we did it please comment or DM me I’d love to help 💜
P.s. the headpiece I’m wearing in these photos is another one of my old necklaces reinvented 😍
Melted some crayon trees for my daughter to give as gifts at camp! Melted crayons are fun. It’s interesting to see how they all turn out. Each one is unique and different.
It’s easy to feel separate from your school and class while getting your degree online. During Pathway Worldwide, we were constantly encouraged to focus one “The One”. Really this seemed to be the focus of leadership. But... Each Thursday during the program students meet to teach and learn from each other in “gathering”. Really... it’s like going to school every Thursday. Each week one student was chosen to lead the gathering class and help facilitate teaching and re-enforcing the weeks information. While doing this you are encouraged to understand everyone and try to understand how they could participate. .
There are many amazing things about weekly gathering. The most amazing one was, to see how each person chose to prepare, present, and lead class. It was wonderful to see those, who were originally afraid, come out of their shell and see that they had something to contribute. It was neat to see those who were confident change the was they led to suit others needs. It was a blessing to come together as a class to support “The One”. .
One of the best ways to learn is to teach! It doesn’t matter how you start, it matters how you are changed when it is over. We are all in this life together. No matter our color, our culture, our believes, our education, we are one.
I have a confession to make.
I am really hard on myself.
I mean really hard, in the most unhealthy way.
I talk down to myself.
I pick every inch of my body apart.
I have an unrealistic mental image of myself I can't shake.
I'll make leaps and bounds & then get on the scale at the doctors office and every step forward I make is gone.
Now, I know and whole heartedly believe the scale isn't everything.
Except when it comes to myself.
I have days that I cant stand to look at myself in the mirror or the reflection in the window when I walk by.
I also have days where I'm on top of the world.
Days where I see and am so proud of my progress.
I have the ability to build up any human I come in contact with, except myself.
So I see you- that woman who is also telling herself these same things.
I see you, trying to fix what has taken over.
I see you, fighting back those internal demons.
I see you, and just know you are not alone.
I walk beside you in this journey of self love and body confidence.
𝐋𝐢𝐟𝐞 is all about 𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘱𝘦𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘦. How 𝘺𝘰𝘶 view the world 𝐈𝐒 different than how 𝘐 view the world and that’s 𝐨𝐤𝐚𝐲. Our 𝘥𝘪𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘵 perspectives are what make the world 𝐛𝐞𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐟𝐮𝐥. Different 𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐫𝐬 exist 𝘣𝘦𝘤𝘢𝘶𝘴𝘦 of perception. Different 𝐭𝐲𝐩𝐞𝐬 of artwork are loved and appreciated 𝘣𝘦𝘤𝘢𝘶𝘴𝘦 of perception. Your perception of things is part of your 𝐟𝐫𝐞𝐞 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥. You are free to form an 𝘰𝘱𝘪𝘯𝘪𝘰𝘯 or 𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘢 about something entirely based on 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 point of view.
Perception can be 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝘥𝘢𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘴 though. It is a 𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐢𝐨𝐬𝐞 concept. Most people understand the general idea of it. For example 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 picture- Some people see a 𝐰𝐞𝐞𝐝, while others see a 𝘸𝘪𝘴𝘩- there are people who look at 𝐃𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 and see them as a 𝐧𝐮𝐢𝐬𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 in their yard, as a 𝘸𝘦𝘦𝘥, something to be destroyed. Then there are people who very 𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐟𝐮𝐥𝐥𝐲 𝘣𝘦𝘯𝘥 𝘥𝘰𝘸𝘯 and 𝘱𝘶𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮 from the ground, 𝐜𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐫 𝐞𝐲𝐞𝐬 and 𝐛𝐥𝐨𝐰 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐢𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐞𝐬 (𝘴𝘦𝘦𝘥𝘴) away. And you know you have to blow 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐲 last one off for your 𝘸𝘪𝘴𝘩 to come true.
🆘 Let’s say these 𝐭𝐰𝐨 people are 𝘯𝘦𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘣𝘰𝘳𝘴 and meet at their property lines. There are 𝐝𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 everywhere. One will want to 𝐤𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦 while the other will want to 𝘥𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮. It’s all because of how they 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐜𝐞𝐢𝐯𝐞 them. Their perceptions will cause a 𝘳𝘪𝘧𝘵 between the two people. 😔
This is a 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐮𝐭𝐞 example compared to the much more 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘪𝘢𝘭 things people perceive 𝘥𝘪𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘭𝘺.
The thing of it all is, if we took time to 𝐬𝐞𝐞 things through someone else’s 𝘱𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘵 𝘰𝘧 𝘷𝘪𝘦𝘸 it could 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐞 our own 𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘤𝘦𝘱𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 and our 𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘦𝘴. It may also 𝐧𝐨𝐭 change anything, but 𝐚𝐭 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐭 you made the attempt 𝘪𝘯𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘢𝘥 of instantly being in 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐟𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐭. Life is 𝐝𝐢𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐮𝐥𝐭 enough there’s 𝘯𝘰 need to add 𝐮𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐫𝐲 conflict just because you view the world differently 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘯 someone else. 𝐀𝐜𝐜𝐞𝐩𝐭 that 𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐡 person is 𝘥𝘪𝘧𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯𝘵.
“You still look pregnant” “you’ve let yourself go” “wow, you’ve gained weight, haven’t you?” Just a few of the comments I’ve gotten that keep me from posting pictures with my babies. It’s no secret pregnancy take a toll on your body. 3 healthy babies to term, one baby girl sent to Heaven at 16w 5d, and two miscarriages before 8 weeks. My body has been through it, but to top that I’ve had a few health issues as well that have had me on medications that made me gain so much weight, and feel AWFUL. I also got a depo shot back in April thinking it was the best decision for my body at that time, it was not. 😩 I weigh more now than with any of my pregnancies, and the doctors say it’s from my medication and birth control, but it doesn’t change how hard it is! I’m finally off all of the above and starting to feel better, and a huge thank you to @mikeferg991 for loving me extra on the days it was too hard to love myself. Today I’m trying to break through the depression and post my favorite picture of me and my youngest from vacation, and also remember that my body has been through hell and back. Everyone has bad days, but try (even when it’s really hard) to remember to #loveyourself 💗 #bodypositive#bodypositivity#ppd#postpartum#postpartumbody#postpartumdepression#weightgain#weightgainfrommedication#healthymom now #takethepicture#postit#badday#notalone#momsofinstagram#momssupportingmoms#mama#momof3#girlmom#momofangels#mum
It’s that time of the year again… back to school 🍎 .
Social media is filled with first day of school pics or ads about back to school sales. And while this has nothing to do with infertility, it also has everything to do with it. In a time focused on children and family, there can be many raw emotions. 💔
Whether you are experiencing primary or secondary infertility, this time of year can be difficult. It’s a painful reminder that there are no lunches for you to pack, your car isn’t full of kids to corral, there is no finger paint art on your fridge, or maybe it is just the sting of your only child growing up and you fear this will be your last first day of X grade. 📚
It is ok to feel isolated, alone, frustrated, and sad. But you are not alone. So many other women and couples out there are feeling the same way you do. Take solace in knowing that there are other people out there that would also rather be buying school supplies than coming in for multiple ultrasounds and injections too. 💉
Be sure to tap into your support network when you are feeling down. Take a break from social media. Go on a walk with your partner. Treat yourself to an ice cream. Remember that you will get through this and you are strong! 💪 .
The latest data we have for abortions in WA is from 2016. That year alone, there were over 17,000 induced abortions (only counting those at home away from a clinic). Over 49% were from high school and college age girls, some as young as 15.
To this day, abortions in WA state represent over 2% of all abortions in the US, and our counties—Jefferson, King, Kitsap—rank among the highest abortion numbers in our state. Each of these numbers represents a mother, like you, in potential crisis, who decided that abortion was the best—or the only—choice she had. We understand that if you’re pregnant unexpectedly, navigating the options can be scary on your own. It may seem like everyone has a different opinion, and it’s hard to find the support and help you need to make an informed decision that is best for you. That is why we are here for you. You don’t have to feel alone in this or be pressured into any decision. Come by our center for free counseling, support, mentorship, referrals, information, and practical supplies you may need. Call us to schedule an appointment today! 💜 www.prskitsap.org #pregnancyhelp#crisispregnancy#abortion#inducedabortion#prolife#teenmom#notalone
Anyone else use oils to help with symptoms? I use frankincense to stop sleep paralysis, cataplexy and hallucinations. I also use a few different oils in my diffuser at night to help with sleep. .
I have also used oils to help detox, clean my house so my body doesn’t have to process toxins, fight illness in myself and my family which makes life easier and a thousand more things. .
How do you use oils?
