no makeup and no bra days are my fave...#benatural
✨ MOOD: Rising 🌙 . Today: I choose love. Over and over again. The past cannot prevail in the present. No one vibrates for me.. ☀️ I can always bring my awareness back to this moment and choose again. Every moment is a fresh new start. ⛵️ You are right on time. Your ship doesn’t leave without you. The captain knows you are meant to be on it (& she’s always guiding you to safety). 💕 We choose the lens we see life through every single day. Every single moment. Sometimes we get stuck on one for awhile but that’s ok, it teaches us the difference in the vision. 🔥 We always get to choose again. You can do this. You are never stuck for long if you are willing to watch yourself. You can move much faster than you realize. 💭We know so little about what others experience. Are they ever really at peace inside their heads? 💥 It doesn’t matter. Only YOU do. Am I at peace? I think I am. #iknowitbetter
All of this: It’s a gift and I appreciate it every moment it peaks through my awareness. 🥰 Ever since Happiness saw your face (s)he’s been running through the streets trying to find you. 💕 I hope you make up your mind to be exactly where you are today with every bit of yourself. Fully present to the gifts. Happiness will find you. Joy is calling your name. ☀️ . . .
There have been many times in this life where I have been torn down. While these moments were hard and had a lasting impact on my self worth, I have now come to see how precious I am because God breathed life into me and said it was GOOD! So, I decided that my mission, my purpose, is to build others up, to help people come to know their own self worth.
Self Care Wednesday.... ‘is that even a thing?!’, you ask? Yep, it sure is! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Throughout my own personal work and growth, I’ve learned that self care has been the secret key to any success I’ve had in my life. To many this may sound ridiculous that something so simple & seemingly indulgent could make such a significant difference in the success experienced. But here’s what I’ve learned and what I coach others in realizing - every time you give yourself care, love and fill yourself up with the positive experiences and energy it craves, the Universe, God or whomever you believe in, creates space and the opportunity for you to receive more. When you give more, you receive more - especially when it comes to yourself & your dreams. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, even with this realization and commitment I had to do some work around the scheduling & making self care happen consistently and deliberately. Not just a little of this here and a little of that there... I had to really commit to myself, and that looked like surrendering to a weekly schedule to not only making it happen but also making it a non negotiable strategy for success. What the schedule also did was ensure that self care didn’t take over each & every day...because when you understand its power, you can VERY easily let it take over every available moment leaving you without a chance to do the world changing work that lights you & others up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
See, it’s all about finding that beautiful, harmonious balance...and that’s where an empowered & inspired schedule comes in. It allows you to do the work that lights your Soul up, which is about making a difference for others, but also ensures that you fill yourself up consistently as well... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So self care craving Soul, I have a question for you; Do you operate your day from an empowered schedule or one of absolute obligation? ...or maybe if you’re like ‘Old Natalie’.... ‘Ummmmm, what’s a schedule?!’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
¿Has escuchado sobre el amor propio radical?
🔥[ES] Como bien he mencionado a lo largo de este mes, el amor propio NO es solo velas + Netflix + vino. Aunque es deli, el amor propio es más que eso. Es elegirte a ti misma cuando la sociedad está constantemente enumerando todo lo que está mal contigo. Es amarte en un mundo que se beneficia de tus inseguridades. Es rebelarte ante los demás al al revelarte tal y como eres. Incluso, es un acto político.
👩🏻💻Si quieres leer más sobre cómo el amor propio es un acto político, dirígete al link en mi perfil (Artículo Reciente) donde te dejé 4 razones.
🔥[EN] As I have mentioned several times this month, self love is NOT just candles + Netflix + wine. Though nice, self love is often so much more than that. It’s choosing yourself when society is constantly pointing out what’s wrong with you. It’s loving yourself in a world that profits from your insecurities. It’s a rebellious political act.
