The last time I was in this sweater, a man told me he didn’t trust women in leopard print. I can’t speak on behalf of all women, but I can say with 100% certainty that you can trust me on this platform. Trust that I’ll be authentic always, trust I’m sharing things I truly love, trust I’m as much of a disaster as I may seem, trust that I do filter my pics because I don’t have a professional camera and sometimes that shadow on my face from my corner bedroom shot looks like Kurtis punched me and we really don’t need that rumor spreading (he didn’t…I punched him. You’d know that if you read my blog.) ANYWAY. I’m in an interesting relationship with Instagram right now. A big reason for using this platform for me is to authentically connect—connect with old friends, acquaintances, family and new people out there who share similar interests as myself. Some days it’s great. Some days I search #momofgirls and come across another mom who posted something hilarious about failing and wine and forgetting she was in slippers when she left the house. I message her, we connect, follow each other, support each others pages. It’s great. Other times, not so much. The silver lining? It motivates me even more to stay true to you all in what feels like an incredibly inauthentic world. I truly hope that comes through my feed and in my stories. So, despite the leopard print comment (whatever that meant). I promise authenticity and transparency always. Humor, fails, fun. All the things.

💥Make sure you 𝗦𝗔𝗩𝗘 this post for a 𝗿𝗲𝗰𝗶𝗽𝗲 AND 𝗸𝗶𝘁𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗶𝗽!💥 . I made a post about this little #kitchentip a couple months ago. . . I wanted to share again because I used up the rest of my 𝗵𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗺𝗮𝗱𝗲 𝘁𝗮𝗰𝗼 𝘀𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴 🌮 for dinner and needed to restock. . . So I printed up and laminated the recipe to put in the bottom of my container (𝐼'𝑚 𝑎 𝑡𝑒𝑎𝑐ℎ𝑒𝑟 👩🏻‍🏫 , 𝑜𝑓 𝑐𝑜𝑢𝑟𝑠𝑒 𝐼 ℎ𝑎𝑣𝑒 𝑎 𝑙𝑎𝑚𝑖𝑛𝑎𝑡𝑜𝑟 😂). I make a bulk batch so I don’t always have to whip out the seasonings, but just scoop from the container. . . My husband came up with this idea 💡 so I didn’t always have to look up the recipe, it’s just right there! I was so hesitant to admit how genius this idea was 😆 . . Yes this seasoning is very flavorful, tastes like taco seasoning except it doesn’t have all the added sodium 🧂 and other crap the packets have. . . Swipe 👉 to see the recipe for 1 packets worth of seasoning and as an ✨𝗘𝗫𝗧𝗥𝗔 𝗕𝗢𝗡𝗨𝗦✨, my 𝗴𝗼 𝘁𝗼 𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗻 𝘀𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴. . . . . . . . . . . #tacoseasoning #sharingiscaring

Sometimes what we think we need and want is not what we ‘actually’ need or want...just think about for a moment. ~ When things aren’t working out like we hoped or not happening fast enough it’s easy to become frustrated, upset and resentful. Sometimes in these moments all we can do is surrender to what is occurring and let go of the ‘controlled’ vision. ~ Choosing instead to accept the closed door, the slow pace or maybe even a period of inaction and embrace the moment...embrace what is occurring for us...and if that means embracing the cleared schedules, the inaction, the open space...and lean into this ‘space’ and focus on yourself. ~ Do something that is just for you, see this time as an opportunity to bring your focus within. Maybe you use the time to meditate, get back into an exercise routine, go to that yoga class you always wanted to try, or maybe you have been putting off decluttering around your home. Use this time...this space in your life to do something for you. The universe has gifted you this space for growth and lessons so use it to shift your focus and energy and see what wonderful inspiration comes your way or by not focusing on your ‘controlled’ vision...what new opportunities present to you...perhaps your vision manifests when given the space to freely do so. ~ And just maybe you need the space to observe a lesson within you, the time to go within brings the greatest lessons and opportunities for your greatest growth. So if you feel like you are in this place or space right now....lean into surrender and trust that everything happens in your highest good, in divine order, and you are always exactly where you are meant to be. Sending love and light 💛✨💛✨ . . . . . . . . . #surrender #trust #createspace #growth #kinesiologyadelaide #reikiadelaide #adelaidereiki #adelaidekinesiology #adelaidekinesiologist #musclemonitoring #nourishawakenglow #seeyourlight #shineyourlight #intuition #kinesiology #reiki #lightworker #authenticity #selfworth #adelaide #personalpower  #authenticallyme #liveyourbestlife #align #selfacceptance #soulgrowth #selfempowerment #youareenough #spiritualpath #souljourney

Being authentically me is the most freedom I have experienced in my life. Anyone that knows me knows how much joy dancing brings me. I find myself dancing anywhere there might be music playing. I was dancing in the isles of the grocery store and my son was mortified. “Stop. You are embarrassing. People are looking at you.” he said. My response, “Excuse me for having fun. If they didn’t want people to dance in the store, they wouldn’t play music.” There was a time my kids would dance with me in the store. What happened? When did they lose the ability to be carefree and silly no matter who was around? I couldn’t help but think about my life. There were so many years I was held in the bondage of not being able to fully express all sides of me whenever and wherever. I was afraid of making mistakes and was constantly anxious and overly watchful of the behaviors of others. I’d search for clues on how to act, what to wear, what to say, what to do and what not to do. I looked to others’ opinions to figure out what parts of me were acceptable or not, lovable or not and adjusted accordingly. Never allowing my true self to shine. After years of deep inner spiritual work I came to understand that I didn’t fully accept or love myself. It wasn’t those that I was looking to for approval and love that held me in bondage, it was me holding myself there. I didn’t fully accept or love all of me, so why did I think others might? I am happy to say I freed myself by doing the work I needed to do to get to know myself, to take care of myself and be kind to myself. Today, I no longer look outside of me for approval and acceptance. Today, I love me Today, I enjoy me Today, I accept all of me. That includes my shadow self Today, I am authentically me Today, I am free ❤️ #selflove #selfacceptance #freedom #enjoyme #allofme #authenticallyme
So I’ve been feeling and seeing the weight gain from the last six months and while I’m super disappointed in myself I feel good about the person I see in the mirror! The picture on the left was from July 2018 and the one on the right is from this morning. I’m up about 30lbs and I know exactly what I’ve done to get here. It started out with super small variations, but it added up to being a bigger deal. I know what I need to do to get it off and I am trying, but I can’t say I’m all in as I was before when I hit that 80lbs down before. Even with the weight gain, I’m am a healthier version of me today then I was a year ago. A stronger version of myself. As I sat across from my nutritionist this morning, another 4lbs up, telling her how I was feeling, yet being surprised that these pictures don’t look too incredibly different, she reminded me that this Brigette is a better one than last year’s version! She reminded me that it’s ok if I’m up 30lbs if my mental and spiritual state is stronger this year than before. She also reminded me that next year when I’m back down that 30lbs I’ll be even stronger than this year! So I’m loving me, a little plumper this year than the last, but oh so much more beautiful than before. I believe that healing I’m showing is why folks keep saying how good I look, weight gain and all! So if you’ve taken a step back, it’s ok, just love yourself and let it go babe 💕 #authenticallyme #beautiful #believinginyourself #changeagent #changeyourenergychangeyourlife #changeyourenviroment #changeyourmindset #dontgiveup #girlboss #goals #happiness #happy #inspirationalquotes #keepgoing #liveauthentic #loveyourself #makeithappen #mindset #positiveattitude #positiveenergy #positivevibes #selfcare #singlegirl #smilemore #success #takecareofyou #thankful #writer #youareenough #youbeyou

“Calmness is the cradle of power.” ~Josiah Gilbert Holland It’s easy to lose your patience, and hard work to control it, but oh, the strength in it! Can you relate? Luke 21:14-15, 18-19 But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict…. But not a hair of your head will perish. Stand firm, and you will win life. 👀I feel, I get bothered and I worry but when I am aware of my state I quickly reach for my living hope. GOD"s promises remind me of who he is in me and who I am in him. He is the great I am, a shield, a shelter and my strong tower. Today I choose to rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him and not fret. 🥰I am standing firm on the promises of God!😍 ➡️Guard your mind!⬅️ #twinmom #momof6andcoachofmany #mothersofdmv #motherof6andcoachofmany #momoffaith #zinged #woman #lifeleisurework #authenticliving #intentionallyauthentic #workingmom #wellbeing #mindset #motivationalmom #twinmom

I have this thing I've been doing for the past 10 years. Every year I run on my birthday. It goes back to this old superstition which states "whatever you do on your birthday is what you will do for the rest of the year". I'm generally not one that buys into that bullshit but hey, it also starts my next year off in a positive direction. Plus maybe it's my superstitious European heritage shining through. I always end up running on my own. In the entire 10 years I've never had a person join me on my birthday run. It's not purposefully done, just always worked out that way. Entering my 42nd year was no different. I opened my eyes at 4am and hit the road by 5am before most of the world awoke. I cranked my tunes and pounded the pavement. It's been a while since I've done that, and I realized I've missed 5am a tiny bit. I reflected on the past year this morning. The ups and downs, the growth and opportunities. Despite everything that has happened 41 has been good to me. I conquered some mountains, I've lost some family and friends, I've gain some family and friends, but most importantly I gained me. That is something I will never lose to anyone again. Because you see, I've become addicted to loving myself, and I have people close to me who are kinda loving that person too. To all of you who have reached out and supported me over the past year, thank you. Each one of your messages has given me the courage to take myself back, to feel like that woman was worthy of love, and to fall in love. In love with myself. I'm a work in progress, but you are all helping in the journey. I look forward to the next year and the adventures ahead, because I have some amazing peeps to experience them with. Maybe next year, I'll choose not to run alone. #thisis42 #journeycalledlife #findingmyself #grateful #happiness #authenticallyme #runnersofinstagram #SnowLeopardsunrise #earningit
When I started blogging, I did so anonymously. About a year in, I found the courage to attach my name to my words. Another year in, I found the courage to put my face on the grid, and you know what happened? My self-confidence grew. . For the longest time I considered myself an ugly duckling. The more I put myself out there, though, the more I was forced to put aside criticism of my imperfections. I guess you could say I just had to ‘get over it.’ If I wanted people to be drawn to the real me, I had to put the real me out there. At first, it was hard. I squirmed a lot, but it got easier. And now, I actually love what I see when I look at my grid! . I love the me before me, both the photographs and the life that inspires my captions. I love feeling the self-acceptance that eluded me for decades. And I love the confidence that allowed me to ‘work it’ when I had an opportunity to be featured in a Style Profile for @Freshcollective. (For the full style profile, check out the link in my bio.) . So what’s behind the shift? Self-love, friends, and that begins on the inside. Only once you’ve learned to appreciate the beauty within are you able to fully shine. 🌞🌸❤️ . (Oh, and it doesn’t hurt to have a professional photographer and some snazzy Canadian fashion at your disposal!) . Hope to see you on the catwalk! .

What does your self-care checklist look like?⁠ ⁠ It's important to dedicate time to your self, to prioritising your own wellness and happiness. 🌈⁠ ⁠ Here's a few ideas to kick you off:⁠ 1. Take a long, relaxing bath with essential oils. ⁠ 2. Sit in the afternoon sun with a good book for 30mins⁠ 3. Start a gratitude journal that you fill out at the end of each day.⁠ 4. Plan a day out doing an activity just for you.⁠ 5. Establish an exercise routine that you enjoy.⁠ ⁠ Each of us requires different emotional, physical, social, spiritual and intellectual types of self-care.❤️💛💙⁠ ⁠ Put together a self-care checklist that reflects you and your needs, your body and mind will thank-you. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #selfloveisimportant #authenticallyme #positiveselfimage #growthroughit #instaattitude #loveyourselftoday #confidencefromwithin #dontcompareyourself #maketimeforyourself #selfloveisntselfish #selfcareritual
Using my my #guildedreverielenormand for today’s #dailytriolenormand • • What do I need to be aware of today? Park — Lilies — Stars In order to get past my anxieties and fears, I need to reach out for help and trust the path I’m on, but I also need to promote myself more, because doing so portends much success and promise. • • #incubatedauthor #theauthorincubator #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofig #mystorymatters #shamaniclifecoach #teacher #author #speaker #lifestorycoach #careercoach #chakras #chakrahealing #authenticallyme #iamenough #unapologeticallyme #empoweringwomen #speakingmytruth #peace #happiness #innerwisdom #truth #love #tarotreadersofinstagram #spirituality #makeadifference
Given my struggles of late and the message I received in meditation today, I decided to use my #tarotdelanuit to do the Mental Health Spread by @emeraldlotusdivination 👩🏻‍🦳 Card to represent my current mental health: Page of Pentacles. I have a dream that I want to make come true but I’m having difficulty staying positive because I’m focused on past mistakes. 👩🏻‍🦳 An emotion that is clouding my perception of reality: 5 of Pentacles. I feel like an outcast, abandoned, rejected, pushed away, a failure, destined to live out my life in poverty. 👩🏻‍🦳 How to improve my perception of reality and gain clarity: The Wheel of Fortune. Remember and accept that life is a journey of ups and downs, good times and bad. Just accept the ride and trust that the Fates know what they’re doing. 👩🏻‍🦳 How to change circumstances around me to elevate my mood: 3 of Cups. Fill myself with positive energy, drink some tea, cuddle with my cat, celebrate the little things. 👩🏻‍🦳 How I can be happier day-to-day: Death. Don’t concentrate on what is ending—it had to end. Focus on what is beginning. Leave the past in the past. Embrace what the future has in store for me. Be the Phoenix and embrace the transformation. 👩🏻‍🦳 How I can deepen my connection with myself: Judgment. I’m about to reach a new stage in my life. I need to live my life in a whole new different way. I know all I need to know to move to the next level but I need a personal cleansing so I can rid myself of guilt, shame for past mistakes, sorrow, and doubt. Purge my soul and start fresh. Embrace who and how I am. 👩🏻‍🦳 There is so much more I could say about the imagery and symbology in this spread but there isn’t space. Suffice it to say that I’m too focused on the past and the future when I should be focused on the present moment. • • #incubatedauthor #theauthorincubator #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofig #mystorymatters #shamaniclifecoach #teacher #author #speaker #lifestorycoach #careercoach #chakras #chakrahealing #authenticallyme #iamenough #unapologeticallyme #empoweringwomen #speakingmytruth #peace #happiness #innerwisdom #truth #love #tarotreadersofinstagram #spirituality #makeadifference
I had the opportunity to meditate today, so I did. Instead of being open to whatever message or guidance Spirit had for me, though, I asked a specific question: What is my next step with my business; what should I do next? Spirit said I need to release my fear. The Universe is abundant but I’m afraid there isn’t enough for me and even if there is, I think I don’t deserve it. As long as I’m operating from a perspective of lack, I’m blocking myself from receiving. And okay, I know that. And I know all the right things to do and say, but here I am, still stuck, generating no leads, attracting zero clients, and afraid that I never will. Spirit also said I need to start talking to somebody and suggested a psychologist. My mental health has been shaky lately. So... okay. ✨ The #mysticalshamanoracle card I drew, Wild Woman, tells me I need to continue to be authentically me. Regardless of what anybody thinks or what I’m “supposed” to do or any perceived consequences, I need to be fully present in my life, uncover my light, and let it shine brightly. My true self is being called to engage the world. This card tells me my long-held dream is beginning to take root. My authentic self doesn’t fit into a box. I don’t need to do things the way others have, but rather I need to find my own path, have courage, step into the light, and trust Spirit to decide what happens. ✨ • • Peace, light, and love. ☮️🕉💟 • • #incubatedauthor #theauthorincubator #writer #writersofinstagram #writersofig #mystorymatters #shamaniclifecoach #teacher #author #speaker #lifestorycoach #careercoach #chakras #chakrahealing #authenticallyme #iamenough #unapologeticallyme #empoweringwomen #speakingmytruth #peace #happiness #innerwisdom #truth #love #tarotreadersofinstagram #spirituality #makeadifference

// CONNECTION // I have felt this - often - since I started teaching in the summer. But it's absolutely right! Maybe because we do less, leave our students a little more time to their inward gaze and settle into the moving meditation of a flow class. Silence is so powerful and not just in yoga. Have the confidence to let it be in your class and watch the body language of your class settle. . . . #yogateacher #yogaadvice #silenceispowerful #beauthentic #authenticallyyounaturally #authenticallyme #benatural #movingmeditation #bepresent #selfbelief #neverstoplearning #learnalways #loupearsonlivewell #loupearsonyoga
OKAY. I’ve been in a FUNK the last month. I admit it.😝⬇️. . . What do you do when you’re in a funk?🤔😝. For me, I either dig my stubborn heels in to get out or I just quit whatever task is overwhelming me. And as much as I hate to admit it, over the last month, I’ve been struggling with which way to go. . . . 🆘I have struggled with getting my mindset right. 🤒Sickness🤒 has overwhelmed my household this last month. And I have struggled getting back into my normal groove. . . . 🎯About two weeks ago I was browsing through Target and this book jumped out at me. You see, I have the mentality that if I’m going to do something...I am going to give it 100%. 🙌🏼🙌🏼. . . ➡️➡️ The problem with that mentality is that if it doesn’t go to plan, I will beat myself up mentally about it. 🙏🏼As SOON, as I saw this title, “Grace, Not Perfection,” I knew God was speaking to me. I am a perfectionist and I too often limit the amount of grace that I give myself. I’ll freely pass it out to others, but hold myself to a ridiculous standard. . . . ♥️I LOVE the simple mom truths in this book. I love her stories because I can relate to them. And I love the concept of giving yourself grace in this crazy world of motherhood.. ♥️This is not your typical transformation post-but it’s a real one. Today, I’m choosing to transform myself in my mind. And I choose that every day, whether I share that here or not! Reading, listening to personal development has really changed my life.. ♥️And to all my perfectionist ladies out there, give yourself a little grace today. . .
Truth is, the tool we need to free others is the very tool we need to unlock ourselves. I don't accept all things as truth but I accept it as your truth. #AuthorJustJin
To see the beauty you may have to change your perspective... . . . So often in life we get stuck. Stuck in a work rut. Stuck in a dinner rut. Stuck in a health rut. Stuck in our own self doubt and self loathing. You do not have to be stuck! When you look at yourself do you see the grey, the clouds, the dreariness? OR do you see the sunshine, the beauty and the opportunity? You can choose to stay where you are because it is a choice you make. No one else is making that choice for you- blaming others and making excuses for our circumstances does nothing but hold us back and keep us in the grey clouds. The choices don’t have to be big because even small changes can be life changing. If you're not obsessed with your life, change it! 😍 Your life doesn't have to be hard. You don't have to be broke. You don't have to be lonely. So don't just accept your situation as the way life HAS to be! You have the opportunity to change it, but it's going to actually take action! You must have the COURAGE to believe & dream bigger. Nothing amazing or life-changing will be found in your comfort zone. 🌟 You make the choice to sit in the grey and rain ☔️ or rise above the clouds and see the possibilities. The choice is yours. #lifelessons #healthylifestyle #progressnotperfection #attitudeofgratitude #authenticallyme #momlife #squadgoals #mgcelite #beA @cynthetic (photo)
This has probably been one of the most difficult years for me, but also the most rewarding and growing in so many ways. I always said I’d never go gray and I decided to shave my head for my niece to encourage her in her cancer journey. I wanted her to know that beauty isn’t in hair, but in who we are. I was able to donate my hair to Children With Hair Loss and I then allowed my silver to show and decided to embrace right where I was at. I weigh a lot more than what I normally weighed since having two surrogate babies for a friend-7 years ago😭Ever since the last baby I have not been able to get the weight off like the previous 4 times I had babies. This has been hard for me as I normally was pretty small framed and I’ve had to try to embrace a new curvy figure. I moved back to a town where I used to belong, but didn’t feel like I belonged anymore. I left a place where I was using a bunch of my gifts and came back to a place where I served for 10 years that didn’t need my gifts in the same way as before. I have felt so sad, insecure, lonely and lost. It seems so hard for me to believe I’d feel these things at 44 years old, but I have. I haven’t been able to recognize the girl in the mirror. I am not the same as I was. I am learning to accept that, but then I really don’t want to be the same as I was. I want to be better. I want to be bolder. I want to be stronger and care less what others think. I want to be more free, and I am realizing I am all of those things. It has not been easy. I miss so many things about the old me...my body, my dark hair, my getting to sing and serve. I’m trying to look at this past year as a year of becoming a new version of me, not necessarily a worse me, but a new, better me. I’m trying to be the me who is more accepting of myself, my flaws, my age, my curvier body, my gifts that can be used differently than they were. To not see these new things as me not being enough or valued, but see them as being redefined. It is a different kind of beauty that really begins from the inside out,...continued in comments

The other day I remembered how when I was a little figure skater I grew up absolutely loving and looking up to @sashacohennyc so much that my mom bought me tickets to go see her championship in Calgary in 2006. I remember jumping up and down in excitement calling out her name for an autograph but unfortunately she just smiled and waved at me as she got off the ice. Still an amazing memory though. Who did you look up to when you were a kid? . . . . . . . . . . . . . #instalike #createyourlife #aesthetictumblr #aesthetictheme #loveme #mystyle #fashionlook #trendylook #blueaesthetic #justanotherselfie #sweaterseason #grungeaccount #likeforlike #authenticallyme #beyourownkindofbeautiful #outfitlover #20something #maketodaycount #softgirl #softaesthetic #sweetsmile #imcold #justkeepsmiling #figureskating #bluehairgirl #montrealgirls #browneyes
Бодипозитив - оправдание для ничегонеделания? НЕТ! Посмотрите на эту прекрасную жэнщину. Подростковое акне еще никого не делало некрасивым. У меня акне где-то с 4-го класса. Я живу с прыщами уже 7 лет. Имею бугристую кожу. Как и многие! Это абсолютно нормально и тоже по-своему красиво! ВЫ ПРЕКРАСНЫ ТАКИЕ КАКИЕ ВЫ ЕСТЬ💖✨💖✨✨💖 У меня есть живот. И я его очень люблю. Мы с ним столько лет знакомы, что стали родными друг другу. И, знаете, никакие глупые стереотипы общества не докажут мне, что я некрасива. Хожу тут, с прыщами и животом, совсеем облениилась. как так мооожнооо. Я ухаживаю за собой. Делаю упражнения. Пью водичку. Прыщи я тоже лечу. Но людей это не волнует. Они смотрят на мои волосатые ноги и говорят, что это отвратно, и, наверное, я еще и не моюсь. лол, что? Волосы есть у всееех. Ребят, у всех. У каждого человека на этой планете есть волосы и это прекрасно. (ну, может, у кого-то особенность такая, что их нет, что тоже нормально) Вы никогда не замечали что каждый по-своему волосат?? Это же тааак прикольно. Почему это должно быть отвратным? ЭТО ПРЕКРАСНО✨ А жидкости организма? лаадно. а то вас еще инфаркт хватит, когда я скажу, что это все тоже прекрасная норма. Может, про животы поговорим? А давайте. Вы мне скажете, что я оправдываю свое "ожирение" бодипозитивом, чтобы ничего не делать, а я вам отвечу, что вы мыслите очень ограничено. Потому что бодипозитив - про ЛЮБОВЬ к своему телу. А человек, который истинно ЛЮБИТ свое тело поймет, когда ему уже некомфортно в мвоем весе, когда это влияет на здоровье. Бодипозитив про ЛЮБОВЬ. Тот, кто назовет любовь к себе нарциссизмом будет, либо лицемером, либо закомплексованной личностью, потому что это лучшее что может с вами произойти. Я серьёзно. Любовь - она сдержанная и, истинно себя любя, ты поймешь, что эгоцентризм тебе самому на пользу не пойдет. эгоцентризм - это искажение действительности, что ложь самому себе, а зачем себе лгать, если ты себя любишь? Это все очень сложно объяснить, но любовь - это любовь. И она прекрасна в любом ее проявлении.
