#ChangeIsBeautiful

Posts Share

A comfort zone is a beautiful place but nothing ever grows there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I look at these two pictures, I can’t believe I even let myself get to that place of comfort. I feel embarrassment. I feel disgust. I feel disappoint. And I immediately want to defend myself - Why did I allow myself to get to that place of comfort? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over the last year I have changed physically but mentally as well. I’ve invested more time into me. Into developing myself. Into finding my strengths and learning to accept and grow in my areas of weakness. I am strong outside and in. I believe in myself and I love myself, again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I say again because prior to the picture on the left, prior to my children, I was in a different place. I love my boys. I adore my boys. But suffering from postpartum depression after my first, broke me. I felt inadequate. I felt insecure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can feel the tears forming and I desperately want to hold back. I can feel my throat closing and I want to turn off my emotions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to change, get out of that comfort zone, really better yourself, you have to embrace everything that makes you, YOU. You have to confront those emotions. You have to commit, not one day, not a week or a month, but a long term commitment to yourself to work on you. To make yourself a priority. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am still a work in progress, almost 4 years later. I don’t have it completely fine-tuned. And I certainly don’t have all the answers. Growth is uncomfortable but there is also beauty in it. Beauty in looking back to see how far you’ve come and beauty in knowing you have some amazing changes coming in the future. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #realmotherhood #momdiaries #transformations #postpartumdepression #ppd #boymama #onedayatatime #ichooseme #realmomlife #postbabyweightloss #postbabybody #growth #changeisbeautiful #myadventurebegins #insidejob #comfortzone #momoftwokids #autismmama #findingme #fggcommunity

Today I am immensely grateful to all the wonderful things @iamjoepicorale and I built together. This photo was taken at Joe and I's first retreat together. The @bigomyogaretreat 's were a big part of our relationship, and this weekend was the first one since we broke up last month. It was a beautiful way to reflect on everything we have done together and acknowledge what our relationship has brought to our community and to my life. I met Joe at a time when I felt very isolated and was in a deep process of grief and recovery. Joe has witnessed my transformation of healing, liberation, and growth over the last two and a half years as I have his, and the retreats and other spaces he facilitates played a big role in my journey. I am grateful for our time together and also feel grateful to bring closure to a beautiful relationship and move on into the next things each of our lives will bring. I will love you always, @iamjoepicorale. • At the end of the retreat today, Joe said to me, "You grew too wild for me." • I agree. • • • #love #relationshipgoals #relationship #breakup #beauty #lovealways #werestillfriends #grow #growth #wild #free #freedom #fly #single #transition #change #changeisbeautiful #bittersweet #moveon #lifeisbeautiful #iambeautiful #iamwild #wildwoman #iammine

SUPERHUMAN YEAR IS OPEN FOR ENROLLMENT! What do you really want for yourself this year? Do you want to finally… • Become your own boss, make your own schedule, and travel the world? • Get the toned, fit body you’ve always dreamed about but kinda gave up on? • Get your digestion fixed up so you feel lighter and less anxious? • Launch the program you know will impact SO many people? Ok, let me ask you something else: For how many years have you wanted that thing? If it’s been a year or more, Superhuman Year is for you. The work we do in this program goes beyond the conscious mind. Through biofeedback, tapping, and intuitive guidance we let go of subconscious blocks AND take tangible action to make things happen. Get the details at the link in my bio. XO

2009-2019 #10yearschallenge #10annidicambiamenti #cambiamento #changeisbeautiful #10anni, molte gioie ma anche tantissime sconfitte, intrappolata in una gabbia che chiamavo casa e matrimonio. Tanti kg in meno e tanti #tatuaggi in più 😜 tante lezioni difficili della vita, ma anche nuove e belle esperienze. Tanti e nuovi amici che hanno “sconvolto” la mia vita da due anni a questa parte! Solo 3 capisaldi in questo periodo: mio figlio, la mia famiglia e la mia @86ellys86 ! Quanto si cambia in un lasso di tempo così “breve” Ora riparto da #me, buona vita a #me Me lo merito!

Hur behåller man den där nästan retsamt flyktiga känslan av motivation? . 3:e veckan i januari är en kritisk tidpunkt för många. Det är då motivationen tenderar att falna. Det är då du avgör hur du ska gå vidare med förändringen du började med vid årsskiftet. . Kolla in senaste vloggen för mina tankar och förhållningssätt till just motivationen (länk i min profil). . #motiverad #motivation #hållmotivationenuppe #vackravanor #förändringärvackert #changeisbeautiful #ettannatlivärmöjligt

Dear apartment - Thank you for being: 💫 My home 💫 My first official office 💫 My dance studio 💫 My space during challenges 💫 A place I experienced pain 💫 A place of healing 💫 A place I found strength 💫 A place I transformed Today is moving day! So often we are in such a rush to get to the new place, that we don’t give ourselves time to reflect and say goodbye to what once was as we move forward to what will be. So last night I lit some sage, and I wrote the above list. I allowed myself to be present with any feelings that came up and honored this leg of my life-journey. When I honor my past, I always feel I am more ready to step into the future. . . . I walked into this apartment a corporate woman in finance (running Wizebody Wellness on the side), I was in a relationship, and I was not yet in remission from Crohn’s disease. I’m walking out a female entrepreneur living my passion daily, I’m single and never been so happy in my own skin, and I’m in remission and healthy. What a journey this has been! So much change, so many lessons 🙏🏻. Excited and ready for the next chapter ❤️

Rowan found this beautiful little ice sculpture. Moving brings funny little moments to reflect on the patterns we create when we stay in one place. The spider population seems a little miffed that we are disturbing their storage shed homes. Tea outside in the sunshine brings a welcome break. I’ll miss some things about this place, but the spiders can stay. #blueskies #icetrees #slowdown #tea #wildtea #meditate #theriver #rivermagic #forestmagic #changeisbeautiful

Feel good post: 6 weeks postpartum . Pregnancy takes quite a toll on the body. By the end of 9 months, your stomach is stretched further than you could possibly imagine. Your now wider hips and belly are decorated with stretch marks, officially branding you mommy. Finally, after 24 hours of labour, you get to hold the little human that made your body change the way it did and a world of emotions come flooding in. You're overjoyed to be meeting your new baby. Your nervous for the days, months and years to come. You're a little sad because your body looks so different now and you miss how you looked before. . I know my body will never be the way it was before. I will probably always wear jeans that are one size bigger than before. No longer will my skin be perfect and unblemished. But I love my new body. I love what my body went through to bring my little man in the world. And I am making a promise to myself to never be ashamed of the new me. I will love the extra weight that I will probably carry and the loose skin. I will love my new muffin tops. And i will love my stretch marks because they are a constant reminder of the amazing process that I went through to create life. . Just remember to be kind to yourself. Love how amazing your body is and appreciate the amazing changes it is capeable of going through. It took 9 months to get this way, it will take time to go back. 💕💕💕 #postpartum #postpartumbody #mombod #mombody #loveyourself #yougotthis #thisislife #perfectlyimperfect #momlife #momlifebelike #unashamed #icreatedlife #icreatedlifewiththisbody #imamommy #imamomwhatsyoursuperpower #momsaresuperheroes #changeisbeautiful #beproud #beproudofyourself #bekindtoyourself #lifeisbeautiful #6weekspostpartum #6weekspostbaby #newadventure #letsdothis #proudofmymombod

Självkritik står inte i motsats till självacceptans, utan det kan vara något av det mest kärleksfulla vi kan ge oss själva 💜 . Icke att förväxla med självfördömande, som inte alls är hjälpsamt utan kan ses som ett slags mentalt självskadebeteende 🤕 . Förra veckan blev inte allt som jag tänkt och jag hade god anledning att engagera mig i lite självkritik. Väldigt hjälpsamt. Nu kan jag gå vidare. Göra bättre. Inte överge mig själv för att jag inte levde upp till förväntningarna, utan fortsätta ta hand om mig själv på bästa sätt 🙏 . #verktygivardagen #livetutansocker #changeisbeautiful

Okay, I’ll bite. 2008-2019... 11 years seems like such a long time, but really I remember this moment like it was yesterday. I had such big dreams and I was unafraid. Now, I have achieved dreams that are even bigger than myself - marrying my Prince Charming and having our beautiful baby girl. I never knew I could have so much and be so much. I’m really proud of the woman I’ve become and even prouder of the 18 year old I was. She is the reason I am who I am today ❤️ #stillsassy #stillgrowing #adulting #changeisbeautiful #bigdreams #dreamscometrue #proudofmyself
