This is from May. I’m trying to be happy. I really am. I want to feel better. But today I don’t. And I accept that. #thisisme #anxiousmind #livingwithanxiety #johnnycupcakes #wearehappyplace

Taking a break from the weeds and boneyard I am currently in to laugh with my new boyfriend. The struggle is real right now but so, so worth it. I’m having a lot of fun, feeling lots of nercitememt (nervous and excitement combined) and prepping for two big talks at the same time! Oh and I also get to grade papers, teach classes and of course do the mummy thing!!🎃🎃🎃 Believe me...this is not me glorifying busy. You won’t ever find that here. It is however an honest reflection of what is true in this moment. I am channeling self-compassion, boundaries and self-acceptance like a boss. I am super grateful for the opportunities to do things I love and leave perfectionism in the graveyard. Life is bootiful, batty, and full of treats. Guess what?? So are you!!!

Everything is not ok. And that is ok. I have stayed quiet but truly that’s not me. I want to share this crazy ass life journey with you because I feel like you come to my page not for the fluffy sparkly posts but for honesty.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I want to inspire you by being real and not putting on some front when everything is not ok. ⠀⠀ So here goes.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ My heart is broken. It has shown me I’m not as strong as what I thought I was. I have worked really hard on my mental health through the years but this time my heart couldn’t take it and I cracked. I have felt totally out of control lately and I needed to give myself a little kick in the ass. This morning I went back to bed after dropping off the kids at school and I felt that darkness creep in that hadn’t been there for a long time. I knew I had to stop avoiding and just let my emotions out. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I fell in love. I fell hard. I saw a future and my heart exploded with so much joy when I was around her that life felt frozen in time. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ But it’s gone and I’m trying to navigate it. I needed to allow myself to be hurt stop pretending I was ok. And while I still feel crushed. I feel better letting myself feel it.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I know I don’t have to share this with you. But I want to. It’s just as much my therapy as it is to hopefully reach that one person that needs to know life can suck, our hearts can break.. But hopefully I can show you that they can mend too.⠀ ⠀ Many people don’t understand me and that’s ok. I am a lot 😬 I am intense. I am a 100% all in kinda girl. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t. I wish I could maybe step halfway in.. then I would only get halfway hurt right? ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ But here I am. Full heart on my sleeve and I wouldn’t have it any other way. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ One day maybe I will find someone that loves my intense heart but until then.. I’m gonna keep working on loving her and loving the challenges that make ME STRONGER. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ So.. Don’t avoid the pain. Feel it. Work through it. If we avoid it, it’s not going to go anywhere it will just drag out the pain and hurt.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Write down 5 things that bring you joy and do one a week. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Talk to someone. If you don’t have someone.. Well you have me💜⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ *continued in comments👇🏻

Hello to my new followers! I’m Lou and I am a avid photographer. I’m passionate about capturing everyday moments, real life and candid. I’m inspired by nature and moved by words so often the two go hand in hand with my work. “ I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.” Roald Dahl, My Uncle Oswald.

This is me. No make up. Chubby face and chin. I’m learning to be confident in my own skin. You can do it too. I’ve been self conscious for so long, it is hard to get out of that mindset but you can do it. I have learned that if you continuously have a negative mindset, you are going to talk yourself out of every situation to make yourself better. Each day is a new day to make yourself happy and inspire yourself and others. So excited to continue this Keto journey and see how far I can go! 50 more pounds to go! #inspire #inspiration #motivation #youcandothis #fitness #mindovermatter #thisisme #vulnerable

~Expression~ Today I meditated, something I haven't done in a long time and something I don’t do consistently. During this process I came to the realization that I need to speak my truth, that I need to express my thoughts and feelings, that I need to be open and honest. Shortly after this realization I reached for my angel cards and when I opened and spread them out this was the only card that was facing upright (Angel of Expression) - so I guess I need to listen to my intuition more and go with it! If I'm honest, speaking my truth and being vulnerable scares the 🤬 out of me! I have so much to say, I have so much to share but I never do or very seldom do because of self-judgment and or fear of being judged. Today I realized that what I have to say, what I have to share is of value to someone somewhere. I worry about not being experienced enough to give advice but if I don't start now, if I don't start somewhere, I will never gain the experience and those who are experienced in a specific area or field started somewhere right?! When I searched the phrase “speak your truth” it led me to “4 Steps in Living Your Truth” Here’s a summary from the post: 🧡1. Accept who you are at this moment: The key to change is accepting who you are and by accepting what struggles you deal with. 🧡2. Acknowledge who you are: Who are you? What do you stand for? It's wonderful isn't it, being you? 🧡3. Define your truth: If you stop and listen and feel your inner self, you will become aware of the truths that lay within you. 🧡4. Live loudly & proudly: Now that you know your truths, live it loudly and proudly. Let no one deny you your truth. Be honest and full in your truth. Go check out the full post here https://www.huffpost.com/entry/step-into-your-truth-with_b_5564066 - each point goes into detail! Know that you are good enough and that what you have to share is of value. Let me know if you can relate, I’d love to hear from you! #speakyourtruth #expression #vulnerability #authenticity #thisisme #sharingiscaring #love #safespace #angels #essentialoils #crystals #scentedcandles #meditation #intuition

Something I have been wanting to share.. Hiiiii let me introduce a part of me to you that I haven’t before - I'm Michelle, I am a 22 years old and am a Type 1 Diabetic. In 2008 I was diagnosed as a Type 1 Diabetic. I had been sick, losing weight, missing school and just not feeling well at all.. and for the average 11 year old this was not something that was normal. Through testing my family & I discovered that I was a Type 1 Diabetic. It meant that a lot was going to change in my life & my family’s. Now what in the heck does all of this even mean?! Well, *in a nutshell*, Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease that is the result of your immune system basically “attacking” your pancreas. The pancreas is an organ that supplies insulin, a hormone, to your body which helps control your blood sugar in your body, your energy, etc.. as a Type 1 Diabetic your pancreas no longer can function which leads to no insulin being produced on your own anymore. I could go on forever talking about the hardships that this disease has brought me. The long, restless nights, sick days, and everything in between.. but I want to fast forward to today & share what this disease has brought me. • Responsibility • Awareness to my health • Education of my health • Support is key • I am “different”, but that is OK • This disease doesn’t hold me back It has been a long and winding road the last 11 years with this disease. There have plenty of highs & it seems like even more lows on the hard days (if you get my high & low reference let’s be friends, lol) but the fact that I am taking control of my health makes me feel that much stronger and in control. This health & fitness journey I am on is NOT just for looks or my confidence but SO MUCH MORE. It's for my overall health, my diabetic health, to grow stronger & to fight this disease with all I’ve got! I can honestly say that this journey has helped me grow & understand myself more as a diabetic. Excited to share more of this side of me and this crazy health journey with you all that I face each & every day. So take this from me... Type 1 Diabetes does not define me, it just makes me a little more me 🌟

The last 20 times i walked in to the house i took note of my shadow. And each time i thought a little more... Thanks to #MFCEO no. 218... Give it a listen. . Am i the person i am portraying? . I can make myself look like anything, with a camera angle, the angle of where the sun is, how much i "puff" out my chest and flex my arms. (Granted this is not the best picture, but you get the point) . One of my goals over the last few months was to be honest, and to be the same here as i am in person. So many people want to seem like they have their shit together but they are the furthest from that! Trust me, I know i still have work to do, but it will happen! It all starts with being honest to ourselves first, and that is not easy! . Like me or not... This is who i am becoming. Striving for bigger and greater things while maintaining an honest portrait. And i ask the same of you. Give me the truth, esp if i need to hear it! Stop being afraid to "hurt feelings" . #iam1stphorm #thisismystory #thisisme #mondaymotivation #beaccountable #behonest #tellthetruth #truthbetold💯 #behonestwithyourself #behonestwithme #sayitlikeitis ##selfportrait #whoami #iamarete #bewhoyousayyouare

Spot the spit? 🤦‍♀️ #jogtour Today’s Jogtour started off with music, being my first jog tour in a while I needed some tunes to keep me going. 🎶 @spotify Just good Music I though I’d start off on a smaller jog, but once i got going I decided to challenge myself a little more, if you’ve watched my Jogtours before you know how much I love/hate uphills so I went for more hills and a longer trail. Things that happened on this jog tour, I saw a lot of families 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦walking, I got a lot of funny looks from them and others, some would call it stink eye🤨. I started to sweat 🥵the first 5 mins in, saw some cute dogs🐶.. . 🚨🙋‍♀️A new low for me I spit in my hair, at the same time a 10 year old girl followed by her whole family, passed me on her bike🚲, smooth move Mercedes… 🍂My phone died during my cool down/walk and an acorn hit my head. I leave this Jogtour with happy lungs, a happy body and with spit in my hair..🤦‍♀️ happy 🇨🇦 thanksgiving 😘 #nofilter #blondehair #braids #thanksgiving #🙋‍♀️ #getoutside #realtalk #thisisme #icanlaughatmyself #🤣

Having my Thanksgiving dessert early since I caved and gave everyone cold medicine.... It may be an early night 😆... My favourite thing to make is homemade applesauce in my crockpot. I slice and peel about 12 or more apples. Put a couple of tbsp of cinnamon and a few pinches of nutmeg. Cook it on high for about three hours and then mash it all up! It tastes exactly like Apple pie filling but without all the added sugar 😁. I like putting a giant scoop of frozen light cool whip on top.....My healthier version of apple pie and ice cream 🥧..... ✌ * * * * * * #yummy #applepie #getinmybelly #easy #simple #filling #happyhealthymama #eatmoreplants #drinkmorewater #healthyjourney #weightloss #weightlossjourney #75lbsgone #cleaneating #pregnancyloss #miscarriage #twinloss #whyisthishappeningagain #everyonehasastory #thisismyn #thisisme #igotthis

Hi I’m Krystin- the face behind the 🍪 Thought I’d introduce myself today. ☺️ My sis introduced me to cookies during an Xmas cookie bonanza. She quickly realized I am the worst baking partner because I don’t measure. If I do, I do a sucky job. Sorry, Not sorry. I promise my cookies are delish! I am the worst at putting laundry away. I happily wear my clothes out of the clean basket for weeks. It’s my achievement of the month when I finally put all the clean laundry away, and it lasts for 3.7 seconds. I’m mom to a threenager. My daughter is full of sass and a diva. Basically she’s a mini me on steroids. Plus the wildness and energy of her daddy. They say that means she’ll be successful...I’m tired. I hate icing. Ok hate is a strong word. I dislike it. I won’t eat cookies with icing on them. I scrape it off my cakes. Ironic, right? I also don’t like chocolate. I’m a freak. My daughter loves to critique cookie designs I create for you. For the first 1.5 yrs of her life I had her convinced they weren’t actually for eating. Then she went to daycare... and my lies all fell apart. I love cookbooks. I love food. I actually enjoy cooking more than baking because, well: eating. And not measuring. I read cookbooks cover to cover like a book and salivate imagining the deliciousness. I work in healthcare in a job that I love. It is not creative or artistic. At all. Cookies have become my way of expression to create something beautiful. I’m so glad to have an amazing group of customers so I don’t have to eat them all. Because...Icing. (See above). I have a super dry sense of humor and it’s not for everyone. I get it. I’m not really mean... just sarcastic. My heart isn’t actually cold and black, despite what my hubby might tell you. (He loves me, I swear) Sometimes I feel like a hot mess. Work life, mom life, grown up life-it’s a lot to keep track of. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be baking for fun (ha!). Never did I think 1000 people would willingly follow along my journey and trust me to celebrate in their events by creating something to share in their life’s special moments (big and small). Thank you all from the bottom of my cold 🖤
