I worked out for the first time in probably a couple weeks today. Looking at these pictures you can’t really tell that I haven’t been working out like I used too. Life got a little crazy, I let excuses get the best of me and my head tell me negative thoughts. But now I’m ready to try and jump back into it and come back into this journey. Am I going to have bad days? Yes Am I going to let it get the best of me? NO WAY! I know how far I have come and I know what I am capable of. Never let those voices in your head get the best of you.... you are stronger than you think! *

Start taking mixed signals as a NO.
I speak from experience. But I’ve talked about this before. When people are for you, they are for you. They can go all in for you. If they can’t, it means 2 things, either they aren’t developed enough to be honest with you ( the people pleaser in them) or they aren’t willing to commit to a solid relationship with you because of differences.
I have always had a hard time with this, simply because as a people pleaser I never wanted to be honest with people, I wouldn’t tell them the truth in fear of hurting them, which in the end would just hurt them even more. I know this is something a lot of us struggle with as we grow up in a generation where being flaky is so common, why? Most of the time because we’re just afraid to hurt people or aren’t ready to commit.
After finding my people and especially my person ( @thefitpinoy
_viking 😍💛) I feel a shift. In being more open, vulnerable and honest. Getting comfortable with it. Don’t be afraid to speak how you feel 9/10 times you hurt someone less than if you were to keep things in.
No ghosting. No more mixed signals. REAL MF TALK.

If I could go back to this day
When I, when we were in the 5th Grade
I’d tell you that you are not more flawed based on the choices that your parents made
I’d tell you that one day you will like your nose and your body that way
I’d tell you that your appearance will constantly change but the right people will stay anyway
I’d tell you to stop scarring your #skin
because of the environment your in and that one day you will find a way out through the #strength
and intelligence you have within
I’d tell you that one day you will to learn to love the #scars
that are not self inflicted and how much I’am sorry for hating us when we weren’t even finished. .
I was so hard on my younger self, disliking my features before they matured and disliking my body because it “became a woman” at the age of ten, then out growing my peers in a shape that I wasn’t impressed with.
Growing up I didn’t see or hear anyone loving themselves as they were, only being glorified for what they had that was considered #beautiful
. I always had little to none of that resulting in me never seeing what made me beautiful just what was considered beautiful. .
Also , here are some pictures of me before the age of 15 🤭

" When you lose somebody, you lose them not only when you lose them but each time when you are reminded of them, when memories of them flash across your mind in broad daylight, when you yearn for their presence. When you lose somebody, you lose them not only once, but over and over again for the rest of your life." - Lukas W.
PIC FOR ATTENTION-

Ženy mají chlupy. Šokující.
Když jsem byla asi v páté třídě, přišla za mnou spolužačka a šokovaně se mě zeptala: “Ty si neholíš ruce?” Spustila tím ve mě sérii pochybovačných myšlenek, které vyústily v půl hodinový večerní boj ve vaně, kdy jsem se rozhodla, že si NUTNĚ potřebuju oholit ruce. Bojovala jsem sama se sebou, protože mi to přišlo nepřirozené. Holit si ruce? Proboha proč. Všichni kolem mě chlupy na rukou normálně měli. Tak jsem si oholila kus předloktí a řekla si, že uvidím, co dál. Když to začalo dorůstat, rozhodla jsem se, že už si ruce nikdy neoholím. Moc to škrábalo.
Jenže moment, kdy jsem si začala holit nohy si vůbec nepamatuju. Nepamatuju si, kdy jsem se rozhodla poprvé oholit podpaží. Možná si pamatuju, kdy přibližně jsem se poprvé oholila mezi nohama. Ale vážně nevím. Prostě mi v určitou chvíli přišlo, že to tak má být.
Doteď mi přijdou chlupy na holkách občas jako něco chlapského. Nějak jsem se naučila, že chlupy na holky nepatří a skoro celý život jsem s tím fungovala. Nedokážu vám přesně říct jednu věc, která mě to naučila. Dokážu jich říct víc.
Reklamy na holení, kde si holky holí holý nohy. Postapokalyptický filmy, kde holky bojujou o vodu s bezchlupým podpažím. Porno, kde jediný chlup je sexy čárka mezi nohama. Moje vlastní kamarádky, které jsou vždycky zdánlivě úplně dokonale oholený.
Víte, mě je úplně jedno, jestli se někdo holit chce nebo nechce. Spíš mě mrzí, že holit se je taková norma jako si pravidelně mýt vlasy. Jako kdyby se to dalo srovnat. Jako kdyby nás příroda udělala nějak špatně jenom proto, že nám taky nadělila knírek.
A normy se bourají jenom tak, že nastolíte normu novou. Tak pojďme nastolit normu, kde budou normální jak chlupatý tak neoholený nohy. Kde je to podobně jako když si vyberete účes. Protože odstranění chlupů je opravdu jenom čistě estetická věc. Naše tělo totiž chlupy má přirozeně.

I love living in the seasons 💚 It took me some time to learn, but winter really has its magic ~ waking up in the darkness, candels and hygge, beautiful knitted cloth, indoor warmth and lots more.
And the sun ~ I love the sun most in the winter, the nourishing light that shimmer and sparkle in that winter way, today it visited me several times ❄️☀ bringing only joy and moments of just being, being a bloomer 🌹
Today I am grateful for:
🌹 The winter sun
🌹 Things working out - always.
🌹 Being brave

“The key to success is to start before you are ready.” -Marie Forleo•
Well if that is’t the absolute truth!•
As a full-time working woman pursuing my doula passion on the side, I often wonder if I’ll ever feel “ready” to make the transition from a comfortable full time gig to full time passion project. I know the answer is no- I’ll never truly feel ready.•
Accepting the fact that it will always feel a little scary and intimidating to make the leap, I’ve been putting the work in to feel confident, even if I don’t feel ready.•
I’ve planned, networked, prayed (a lot), listened, manifested, hustled, read, studied and everything in between...•
I’m working towards big things this week and finding comfort in knowing that everything will happen exactly how and when it’s supposed to.•
Taking some additional time this Monday to manifest a little extra confidence for the week to come because ready or not.. I’m gonna do it.
I had the best weekend. I truly checked all the boxes on doing things that I enjoy!
I cooked/baked. I binge watched Netflix/Shameless. I did Pilates and Soul Cycle. I had brunch which a bunch of awesome wellness babes. I went on a date night with Matt. We went to Farmer’s market. Bought flowers and hummus. Drank lots of Alfred coffee. Bathed Lucky. Had couch snuggles. Got some side hustle work done. And ended yesterday afternoon with a lunch outside! We picked up @panerabread
to-go to try their new #PaneraWarmGrainBowls
they only use whole foods and real fresh ingredients 🙌🏻👏🏻
I got the Mediterranean Grain Bowl and opted for the vegan option- just ask for no cheese/ no Greek yogurt. I also added the baguette as my side because their bread is truly SO good.
Ending my weekend with a full heart and a full belly. happy Monday 😊
I’m so grateful and blessed to see the sun rise at 28‼️ This past year has been a year of much needed separation, elevation, self love and transformation. I’ve been trying to find this woman I have desired for so long to be only to discover I’ve been her all along.
All I can say now is “It’s about to go DOWN” 🤞🏽💯
It was such a beautiful and deep breathwork session last week, connecting with our bodies, observing and at the same time dropping the mind. Love, resistance, sadness, joy. Everything is part of who we are, what we express in this world. All are welcomed. The angelic and the demonic.
All flavors of humanity is manifested through us.
We feel it, we welcome it.
From this moment of staying with everything that is active and alive in the body, healing takes place. Transformation happens. Our innate essence have space to express, our power starts to come from our core, from our womb/pussy/yoni. There is a fire to it, a stillness, a juiciness.
Honoring our sexuality is yammi, is full of tears, full of laughter. We can live in this constant state of expansion, and connection with ourselves and others. Let’s breathe and dive into it.
The only way out is in!
As many of the women who were there want more of it, I will host another breathwork session on November 20th. Check out the link to the event on my bio
💞Give yourself the love that you desire from others and watch them follow your lead. Don’t step off of your pedestal for anyone. The most self-centered people receive the best treatment while the humble and selfless get left with the crumbs. #selfloveisthebestlove @avirgoworld
‼️I did not wake up like this ‼️
What you see...
A happy mom of 2.
A girl who never loses her shit.
A girl who loves to workout.
A girl with crazy confidence.
A girl who loves to dance and sing while downing pre workout.
A girl who doesn’t give a F*** what other people think.
A girl who has her shit together.
THAT’S WHAT I LET YOU SEE. .
What you don’t know...
I use to hate myself. Literally almost everything about me. I was so disgusted in the way I looked/felt that my relationship struggled with intimacy. I would cry in the shower when no one could see me. And trust me, I DID NOT like feeling this way.
So, I made a change. I told myself enough’s enough.
I found accountability and slowly(day by day) started working on me. .
So when you see me posting workout videos and dancing like a fool, remember I didn’t start there. And I still struggle daily with negative thoughts but one day you have decide to make a change. You have to start choosing YOU. You’re important too! #motivationmonday #thisisme
Be Brave. Be Dope. Be You.

HUMAN BEING OR HUMAN DOING?
I don’t know about you but my greatest rushes of love & joy are ALWAYS felt in the now moment. Fully relaxed & connected to my body, breathing where I am with whichever souls & whatever emotions I’m with.
In this space of wonder the simplest things inspire me, starry skies, a warm hug, the light rippling on water, the shape of a leaf, the giggle of a child, the first sip of coffee, being a little bit naughty, that expansive feeling that anything is possible ....
What I’ve noticed since being back in London is (from my perspective) how, more than ever, this place demands we constantly run around crazed with the pursuit of MORE.
There is always so much to DO, so many people to experience, sights & sounds & advertisers bombard us, there are ways we should look & feel, & such little true acceptance, perhaps of well needed rest. The concept of peacefully, spontaneously doing “nothing” is almost non existent. Here there seems less space to simply BE. Yet a great many ways for people to numb themselves in order to escape.
I’ve realised these last few weeks just how important & necessary protecting my peace is. My spiritual practice, meditation, yoga, nature walking, breath work, silence. I’m changing all the time, my consciousness is shifting wildly in ways I can sometimes barely believe and it’s demanding almost all my energy.
Seeing my friends in the UK has been beautiful, and yet also like a test, showing me how much more there is still for me to learn 😂. Next Monday I’m off to Rishikesh at the foothills of the Himalayas to explore a deeper level of soul connection, through nature, a 300 hour kundalini YTT & sound healing amongst other things. I’m looking forward to that vastness & a different kind of immersion. And until then I’ll make the most of this London hectic! 😀🥰😍
