You know its possible to reframe your self care, so that when you take a shower, bath or moisturise you can take a moment to notice what you are doing and give thanks to your amazing body for supporting you. Next time, try touching your skin with thoughts of love and gratitude, it might feel awkward at first but stick with it. Be present with yourself for this moment, there is time for this. Rituals do not have to be additional tasks, we can bring affirmations and intentions to what we do already. You are worthy ❣
Μην περιμένεις να χάσεις βάρος πριν αγοράσεις αυτό το φόρεμα που σου άρεσε!
Μην περιμένεις να χάσεις βάρος για να πας θάλασσα φορωντας το μπικινι που ειδες στη βιτρινα και αγάπησες!
Μην περιμένεις να χάσεις βάρος για να ξεκινήσεις τα μαθήματα χορού που τόσο ήθελες!
Μην περιμένεις να χάσεις βάρος για να αρχίσεις να φλερτάρεις και να νιώθεις αυτοπεποίθηση για τον εαυτό σου!
Μην περιμένεις να χάσεις βάρος για να ζήσεις! Η ζωή σου είναι ΤΩΡΑ! Ζήσε την χωρίς τα πρέπει που υποβάλεις εσύ στον εαυτό σου! Ζήσε την γιατι δεν θα την ζήσει κανείς άλλος για σένα! Ζήσε την γιατι το αξίζεις!
(💜) IT ALWAYS SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL IT‘S DONE
Sometimes our goals and dreams are so big, we start to doubt if we can even achieve them. Just stay focused, take it one day at a time, stay consistent, and keep moving forwards.
Do not dream your life, live your dreams.
You may fall down, you may make mistakes, you may doubt, but NEVER GIVE UP.

“Let someone love you the way you are - as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are.
To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room.” Mark Hack
I used to believe my worth was based on:
what size I wore.
what people thought of me.
If people thought I was pretty.
if men found me attractive.
what others thought of me.
I used to believe in lies. Not now. Now I KNOW that my worth is not/has never been/never will be based on my weight or size or what people think of me.
My worth exists because I exist. I am worthy because I AM. If you are struggling with this, please remember there is nothing to do or not to do, to be worthy. You just are ✨ **2x spots left in my body confidence course! Starting October 9th 💕 LINK IN BIO!
Lets start off the week with a little reminder:
-Your clothes do not determine your consent.
-Your clothes do not determine your worth.
-Your clothes do not determine the level of respect you receive.
Can I get an AMEN up in herrrreee?🙌🏻

😫 Feeling unstuck... but not able to take action?
Always in a cycle of indecisiveness and procrastination?
Is your self-doubt always winning and getting the best of you?
For years and years, I wanted to become free.
I wanted to use my gift to do meaningful work.
I wanted to help make the world a better place.
I wanted to meet my soulmate and experience real love.
And, I kept waiting for the right time.
But it never came and things only got more difficult.
I felt unhappy and trapped in my life.
I wanted to move forward but I was frozen by my fears, and the list of excuses just kept getting longer and longer.
Until I reached a crossroads in my life.
I couldn’t continue like this anymore.
I had to make big decisions without playing it safe.
I realized it was me who was telling the stories of what I can do and have. It was me who kept repeating what I would deserve or be worthy for. I finally decided to choose me, and heal myself to find my happiness.
I started consciously changing my limiting beliefs and stories I was telling myself and externally the things started to change quickly.
My energy shifted, I felt so much happier and lighter and I started getting all that back at me.
Little things, possibilities, and ideas showed up before I started pursuing my big dreams.
Become free to take action and follow your real desires and goals by releasing the old self-limiting stories and inner boundaries.
To help you get started I am giving away my FREE WORKBOOK “Change Your Self-limiting Beliefs and Subconscious Blocks”.
If you would like your FREE copy, type 👇“YES” 👇below and I will send it over.

Life is a grindstone, but whether it grinds us down or polishes us up depends on what we are made of. —Allen Sypher
Last summer beach day of the year and this morning I’m getting back into my own routine... Since Ezra my husband has worked longer days and been away more than ever...
I work most evenings as I can’t afford childcare, my me time is the gym and the last ten months I’ve squeezed it in where I can but there’s been no routine, no knowing when I may get my hour of release.
Yesterday I decided I need that time...
I need it to function.
I need it to be a better wife.
I need it to be a better mum.
I need it to feel good in myself.
So after a disrupted night with Ezra 5.30 my alarm went off and all I kept thinking was when I’m back home and feeling proud of myself for making myself go I will thank myself.
I love a workout with the kids, I do.
However I need this headspace, this time to just think or not think. The car journey alone, the walking out the front door with handsfree, just me to think about.
I remember when Eva and Isabella were little I’d feel so guilty for doing anything for me, leaving them or letting myself have any time.
As the years have passed and now I have four babies I’ve learned that actually I deserve the time so much- even if it’s not to go to the gym, it’s a dinner out, it’s a haircut or a drs appt... I am worthy of self love and self care.
Hopefully my children will grow up to see that self love and self care are so important and that your emotional and physical wellbeing is paramount to having a happy and healthy life.
Anyway... heres to a beautiful Monday.
What have you been putting off doing for yourself?
Don’t forget to tag me and use #motheringittogether So I can see, support and share.
It took me years to realise that dissociation was a major issue in my life.
This makes sense considering that I was dissociating, I was unaware of the reality of my situation.
It is so hard to see the truth when by definition your condition blocks of from you.
You dissociate due to trauma. Therapy and years of safety are slowly unraveling this defence mechanism, but it is a slow and challenging process; particularly because fixing dissociation caused me to feel more of my other issues.

You are the only one who can limit your greatness
Remember you are enough #youareworthy
The last 2 wks have been a blur! From NY to DC to a quick San Diego turnaround, work and entrepreneurial endeavors have kept this woman busy! Work-life balance and self-care is so very necessary, and I was reminded of that today while spending some quality time with my @campowerment siSTARS. Most of us are out hustling and striving for the same things in life and love. It's that constant pursuit of happiness and it takes work, it takes communication, dedication, vulnerability, and simply owning your shit. I didn't have anything particularly inspiring to say tonight. Just thought I'd share a few selfies taken from my hotel in DC last week to let y'all know ya girl is still pushing. Sending you all an abundance of positive and progressive energy as we gear up to tackle another week. Keep your eye on the prize 🏆🏆🏆 #HappySunday#selfcare#selfreflection#YouAreWorthy

Not the best time to post according to Insta but YOLO. I wanted to get this post up because I LOVE IT despite the capture of one of my “flaws.” You are not defined by your body. Your worth is not measured by the number on the scale, the size of your waist, whether or not you have stretch marks, acne, or thick thighs.
It’s the love in your soul, the kindness in your heart. The way you treat those who maybe don’t treat you the way you deserve.
Your worthiness comes from within, and guess what? YOU determine it. No one else gets to decide it for you.
Drop me a comment with your fave inspiration quote of the moment, I’m feeling inspired and I want to share that inspiration with you, and I hope you’ll share some with me as well 🤗 “In the end,
only three things matter:
how much you loved,
how gently you lived,
and how gracefully
you let go of things
not meant for you.”
I’m all for improving oneself. I’ve spent years striving for better. “Do better-Feel better-Look better.” __
But there’s a whole lot of time in between starting and arrived. I think most of us never feel we’ve arrived. Always in a constant state of change, growth and learning. That’s a good thing.
But don’t forget to appreciate who you are right now. ❤️
Do not base your worth on the number on the scales. You are worth so much more!
You are worthy of love, of being loved and giving love. No number on a scale, body fat percentage or BMI can tell you otherwise.
✨🌞✨ Do not fear the light inside you, because that is the light which illuminates the world.
Trust your capacity, strength and vulnerability, do not fear your dreams and your ability to believe, to soar up high and dive down deep.
Do not hold fear for your essence, your beautiful soul, that ancient breath living on through time. You can do anything! The world and all its possibilities lay in the palms of your hands, open up, be and receive.
There is no room for “right” or “wrong” only what feels good for you. Trust the path ahead and listen to your intuition, that voice inside. Believe and know that everything is constantly working for you, for your highest self.
Remember who you are and that you are worthy, there is no need for you to prove your value, you worthiness, it has been there, braided into your soul, way before your birth.
Do not fear to shine, because you along the way were told not to. Rid yourself from those blocks with trust and love, with deep knowledge that things are happening for you and not to you. There is a meaning and a lesson in everything, moments created for growth.
Claim your power, the power of light within, shine and illuminate this world with trust and love in every step. // Ademir Pasic. ✨🌞✨

SELF-CONTROL IS A MYTH and is getting in the way of your happiness (my face says it all here)
If I had a dollar for every time someone said to me “I just love food too much” or “I just need more willpower”, I’d be retired already. You’d likely never hear from me again 🙃
I already know the objections I’ll get...
👉🏼 “But Whitney, I’m all for food freedom but we NEED to control sugar”
👉🏼 “Oh so you’re saying that a healthy lifestyle isn’t possible or worth trying to have??”
👉🏼 “I agree with you but I’M THE EXCEPTION!”
👉🏼 “I can’t let go of control because everything will fall apart!!”
I’m going to address those individual objections in my stories, but for now let me start by saying I completely get WHY you buy into the self-control lie. You feel so out of control around certain foods that the idea of actually letting go of control feels like you’re doomed to live a life of chaos, cookies, and feeling like a failure (I’ll take the cookies 🍪 and leave the rest)
Control also gives us an illusion of safety. Maybe you grew up in a chaotic household or with parents who restricted your food / body shamed you, so you turned to control for safety. By controlling food, your body, your success, and your emotions, you felt like you could control how people feel about you to avoid rejection.
This need for control started innocently enough with the BEST intentions, but at a certain point we have to realize that it isn’t serving us anymore.
Trying to force control for as long as possible is actually KEEPING you stuck in the chaos. Eventually, something’s gotta give. None of us have the energy to maintain control for very long without sacrificing everything else good in our lives (including health)
You are the only one who is hurt by buying into the belief that you need more self-control. When we release control, we open ourselves up to being guided by values, love, and alignment of the gifts in life we couldn’t possibly plan for or predict
I know it’s scary, but the things you learn from facing the fear will make it all worth it.
What’s one way you can let go of control? 👇🏼💖

As we come to an end of a cycle; making way for new beginnings - it’s an undeniable truth in the knowing of the universe taking great care of us all. 🙏🏼 @lackisanillusion ❤️
“Almost ten years ago I had my last suicide attempt that almost ended my life. I was in immense pain and had become numb, isolated, and could see no future or way out. I could never have known all of the beautiful things that I would experience and see or the awesome people I would meet or the countless hours I would spend laughing and singing and dancing and loving. I didn’t know that I would find yoga and teaching and astrology or that I would get to move to Washington, DC, spend lots of time with my family and at my brother’s basketball games, or use the most painful and what were shameful parts of my experience to try to make the world a better place for people like me. I didn’t know that I would find similar people, that I would overcome fears and trauma, that I would one day stop numbing with things like alcohol and bulimia. There have been plenty awful things and I’ve dealt with suicidal thoughts since. But the depth and intensity and love that I have experienced since then make me grateful beyond anything I could imagine that I made it here today with the help and inspiration and support of others. I don’t know where you are today and don’t want to make assumptions about your experience. But I can share that with time and support and connection and honesty that through it all, even when it wasn’t easy or felt insurmountable, it was worth it and this list reminds me that there is more to look forward to and be revealed, even in the hard times.” — @kellyabdavis 💛✨

hi friends 👋🏻 just the gentlest reminder for you ✨ this will pass ❤️

Just want to be fully authentic and real about this.....How many people have been in dark place or are still in dark place? 🙋🏻♂️
We go through so many rough and tough times in our life’s and there are times where we can’t just seem to shake things off. These rough and tough times are different for everybody, and the one that stood out in my life was feeling like I was always rejected and that I was never good enough. It’s a huge struggle when you want things to go the way you expect, and then it doesn’t even happen, especially for a long long time. My career, my relationships, my life, my faith, everything was affected tremendously, and I just couldn’t pull myself out of it, and it felt like I was drowning in my own life. Anxiety and depression hit me like a semi-truck and I literally was not living life at all. Can you imagine living life a way of expressing yourself in a certain way, but not living it authentically?
To be fully honest and transparent, I had some of those feelings coming into this year. I was living in a funk! I was living an inauthentic life within my inner self and I had to take a stand. I started realizing doing self-development on an “inner-personal” level was really important and I realized that this whole feeling of “being rejected and I’m not good enough” was a complete story and that has actually never happened. It’s been “my act” that started when I was 5 years old.
See, I realized that a lot of people don’t want to spend the time to help themselves. Self-love and self-expression are really important life factors to help one’s growth. It’s really tough to open up about this, and it’s not easy, however, I don’t know who needed to hear this today, as it was weighing on my chest to say something about it. If you are feeling like you are in a dark place and have this black cloud on top of you or even following you, I’d love to open up possibilities right now and I’d love to talk with you. Just remember, you are not in this alone! 🙏💯

“Let go - something beautiful is trying to grow within its place.” — Since you’ve began to understand the importance of letting go & establishing trust within yourself - the universe has ensured even more doors of opportunity to open for you now. 🌹 @lackisanillusion ❤️
