“Sometimes you don’t feel the weight of something you’ve been carrying until you feel the weight of its release.” 🏋🏻♀️🧘🏻♀️ • I am the first person to admit that I don’t always want to recognise the negative emotions I am feeling. 🙅🏻♀️ • I push them to the side and continue my day with a smile on my face. • Positivity beaming out of me.⚡️• It’s scary to have to accept that you feel sad. • You feel defeated. • And with everything else going on in your life, you feel like you, out of all people, don’t deserve to feel this sadness. 🙁 • Pretending you’re ok makes you feel strong. • It makes feel in control. • But I can’t tell you how wrong we all are. ❌• I have come to realise that the harder you push those negative emotions away, the harder they come back. ☄️• Even though I feel like I’m being strong keeping everything hidden away within me, the weaker I actually become. • You must face and recognise all of the feelings you feel. • We are human and we have these feelings for a reason. ✨ • When you’re hurting remember that that’s ok. 💕 • But feel the feelings and do not become the emotion. • Witness it. • Allow it. • Release it. • And let all those sad feelings fly away. 🌬• You’ve got this! 💪💛 • #positivelysnooziespoonie
I prayed for this.... I labored for this.... I didn’t know I needed this... Motherhood.
As I sat there with a bag full of vomit filled linen and a child laying in my lap, I remembered this is only temporary. The hard, trying parts of motherhood wouldn’t always look like this. It won’t smell like this either. I gotta keep pushing although all I want to do is sleep..
Though I’m tired... he doesn’t care.. he’s looking for comfort, attention, and expecting me to live up to his expectations.
Why wouldn’t he? I brought him into this world. Caring for him is my responsibility.
How often do we hope, wish, and pray for something but then when we get it we complain, ignore, or abandon it when it becomes too hard or isn’t going how we expect it to go?
The same way you wouldn’t abandon your child when they’re sick or not acting how you would like, you shouldn’t abandon that idea, book, business that is REQUIRING you to push past your comfort zone and give it the time and attention it needs to be better and flourish!! YOU GOT THIS KEEP GOING: EXECUTE
Jag har skrivit en del här tidigare om att göra dealer med sig själv, skapa egna undantag, fixa tillfälliga regler och sen när man är tillbaka i gamla mönster så låtsas man som att det var meningen och att "det där andra" inte var något att sträva efter. Fast just då var det det ENDA livet som var tänkbart. Livsstil? Eller inte.. Anledningen att jag kom och tänka på det nu är att jag överhörde två damer bakom mig på tåget som diskuterade var de skulle äta i kväll.
De enades om nåt hamburgerställe och den ena började fundera över hennes "points".. ja, det heter väl nåt annat som jag inte kommer ihåg i skrivande stund 🤔
I nästa andetag så kom hon på att det inte var någon fara, för hon hade ju skött sig så bra i dag... 😳
Jag menar inte att det inte är okey att äta hamburgare när man åkt i väg på en tripp, men jag tror ni vet vad jag menar...
Dessa ständiga förhandlingar man för med sig själv för att rättfärdiga det där man bestämt sig för att ändra på.
Ja, vill man vara den ständiga förloraren så, visst.. Men vill man vara vinnaren i sitt liv, så får man nog stärka sina argument för det man bestämt sig för. Annars vill man EGENTLIGEN inte ändra sig.
Ja, vi är samma personer oavsett om vi äter burgare, sparris väger 106 kilo, 52 kilo, är 1,95 eller 1,40.. är man idiot så är man och är man en käck person så är man det. Det kan varesig vikt eller längd ändra på. Men.. det där jävla dealandet med oss själva - det får vi sluta med. (Och tänka sig. Nu fick jag in en mag-bild 😁😅) #dontgiveup#geinteupp#girlswithmuscle#strong#stark#healthylifestyle#hälsosamlivsstil#bodyfitness#motmålet#lovethegym#älskagymmet#nyamål#fitover40#fitover45#ageisjustanumber#ålderärbaraensiffra#livsstilsförändring#tränahårthållkäft#positivethinking#kostrådgivare#livsstilsrådgivare#luciapokalen2019#tbergforeverinmyheart#teamTBenergi#fåfäng#äträtt#tränarätt#progression
How to deal with failure?
Most of you have been looking for an answer to this. This post might not be the answer that you want to hear but don't stop reading as it is the answer that you need to hear.
Here's how I deal with failures in my life:
I give myself the space to feel the pain. A few tears and a few bars of chocolate is the first thing I go for. However, I don't go all hopeless about what's coming ahead. I gather myself and move forward.
And here's how you can do it too:
The memes on facebook and the quotes on how beautiful and worthy you are won't do you any good. Give yourself "some" time to recover and then realize that you are not in control of your surroundings. People won't react, feel and do the way you want them to. All you have control over is your own self. Think about the situation and how you could have tackled this bad situation in a better way. What could you have done and how could you have reacted in a different way to go against the odds?
Take ownership for your mistakes so that you can correct yourself. For example if you go saying stuff like "I didn't ace the math test because the teacher is bad" then you have let the situation control you and you have to do nothing about it because you think that it is the teachers fault rather than yours. You have handed over the power to the teacher to make or break your career. On the contrary, if you own it by saying "I didn't do well in the math test because I didn't work hard enough" you have got the power back because now you can put in that extra effort and do well in the next test.
Don't get stuck in that moment. Move forward. Remember, being vulnerable is not bad. Being stupid is. Creating boundaries isn't selfish. It just implies how much access you want to give a person in your life. If you are on the road to achieving something in life then look at failures as milestones not hurdles. Every milestone is a step closer to your success.

I've learned so much over the course of my 25 year journey with fitness. It started off going to the gym with a desire to change a body that I hated. The outcome was my focus. I got to where I needed and it suddenly became a chore. It was no fun. It was only when I started ZFit that I understood the rest. Trying to achieve an ideal that either isn't realistic for me, not achievable or sustainable was a miserable existance.
Whilst I never call anything a waste of time as I learned so much from the process, I am sad that I spent so many years unhappy with my body and made it my focus. I missed out on so much of life.
Exercise now is about feeling good on the inside and creating balance in life. Honestly when given good nutrition and movement the body thanks you for your choices.
As far as my ideal is concerned I learned A "B*' project that gets finished is better then an 'A*' that never gets done
On that note join me
at Peepul Centre at 6.15pm for Zumba

Entrepreneurship is not always easy. Some days you may want to just give up! Don't! Remember why you started, make the vision clear again, keep putting your best foot forward, try & try again! DON'T GIVE UP because every step you take no matter how big or small is in fact moving you closer...
Sending a “thank you” note after the interview
Your note doesn't have to be lengthy but intentional. Bring up something from the interview that makes it unique! I highly recommend writing the note and sending it after your first interview. It's all about your first impression and the steps you take after your interviews. You got this !
Oh how things change!
From Ellie wanting to attack harls if he even made eye contact or walked by her... To her not wanting to leave his side. Kissing him and he walks by.
Another life lesson from a dog: Perception is not always reality. Never be too quick to judge or write things/people off. First impressions are not always lasting ones. If you went only by those, you'd leave no room for someone or something to surprise you.
Dogs have moments. They get nervous. They react. Show them they're safe, correct the bad behavior, take them on adventures..daily.. and they'll show you who they really are ❤️ #dogstagram#dogday#everyday#foster#bestlife#keepyourmindopen#neverleavethedogbehind#dontgiveup#dogsofinstagram#priorities#progress#mywholeworld
We can’t comprehend pain and seek to avoid it. It’s a natural reaction. But the Bible says pain transforms us, takes us to an entirely new level of trust and understanding our purpose. It’s a hard thing to do; walk through pain. Take a moment and remember a time that truly hurt; did you grow? The answer is probably yes. Hang in there, the lesson we learn develops who we are with more stamina a resilience. 💕
The easy road doesn't lead to greatness. Only the hard road does. You must go through it to get it.

چراغ قرمز بود! نشسته بودم پشت فرمون، خسته از یه روز طولانی و با آهنگ رانندگی در مستی شاهین همراهی میکردم. پشت چراغ قرمز نسبتا طولانی افکار و خاطرات بود که بهم هجوم آورد. یاد هفتسال پیش همین روزا افتادم. آلبوم هیچ چندماهی بود منتشر شده بود و من در یکی از بدترین شرایط روحیم بهش پناه آورده بودم. یاد شبی افتادم که با پویا و آیدین و رفقاشون رفته بودیم خانه دریا و من وسط خوشگذرونیا میرفتم تو اتاق زار میزدم. یادم افتاد چقدر اون روزا حالم بد بود، چقدر همهچیز مثل شب دریا تاریک و ساکن به نظر میرسید. تاوان یک انتخاب اشتباه رو چقدر سخت دادم و چقدر از همه آرزوهام دور بودم. پشت این چراغ قرمز، همه این فکرای تلخ از ذهنم میگذشت اما یه لبخند بزرگ رو لبم نقش بسته بود. به خودم افتخار کردم، تو دلم به خودم گفتم دمت گرم دختر، دست مریزاد که تو اون شرایط نشکستی و کوتاه نیومدی، مسیر زندگیت رو عوض کردی و قامتت خم نشد. اینبار داری آلبوم هیچ رو تو شرایطی گوش میکنی که یه زمانی از آرزو به رویای دستنیافتنی تبدیل شده بود دختر. خیلی مخلصیم، دمت گرم. چراغ سبز شد!

Photography- @melgfilmz . . hair @naturalrootshaircare . . I know I'm always promoting self-love and encouraging women to embrace their curves & love their size. And although I at times come off bold or like I'm some kinda powerhouse, I also have a soft side, that shy side that still shrinks, still questions, still looks at her thighs & thinks their too big like %85 of the women out there- I'm human. Does it mean Im insecure -No.
I have to challenge her everyday not to lessen herself. I struggled so much durng this photo shoot to be comfortable in front of the camera.
When I want to ask myself "Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented & fabilous?" I am reminded to answer back, "Who am I not to be. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you! Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure."- Marianne Williamson. .
I encourage you to step out side of your comfort zone, take the risk, DON'T do what's familiar, #OWNYOURPOWER !
This photo is a reminder of where I want to be. 🌿 | For the times I want to give up, for the times that I think I cannot, but also for the good things I've been through until now - for the little victories. | .
