A N X I E T Y’s a bitch

A N X I E T Y’s a bitch. Whose with me?! @fashionlushblog

Erica over at Fashionlush — two words: amaze balls.

If you haven’t heard of Fashionlush well… [pause] …go check her out her site. Like now. (it’s OK, I’ll wait…)

Well, this girl gets it. And I mean s e r i o u s l y gets it.

No joke, no sarcasm, no fillers of any kind — I just couldn’t believe after my 20+ years, I was hearing someone other than myself describing the exact emotions,…

Day 9: True Forgiveness — Most people don’t know the story behind the adoption of my cat Leila. And for good reasons…or so I’ve told myself. I adopted Leila December 1, 2007. It was after one of the most traumatic and life altering periods of my life. I was a sophomore sorority girl in college; someone other people loved to be around, yet I was alone and felt isolated from everyone I’d ever loved, and learned that I needed a fresh beginning. That’s when my life led me to Lei. She pretty much saved my freaking life, and changed it forever in the best way imaginable. Lessons were learned, and I grew stronger and furiously more independent. I was able to learn the most valuable lesson of all: to forgive myself. I chose to forgive myself for the mistakes I made, the choices that I decided felt right, the falls and wounds I had to endure, because all of that enabled me to walk taller and keep smiling. Forgiving myself for all the tears that were misused. Forgiving myself for all of the scars I’ve accumulated over the years. Forgiving myself for letting go, and choosing sin over salvation. All I ever want and need is to love unconditionally, but I’ve learned forgiveness, especially of oneself, can invite all sorts of good things back into your life, including love. Be calm. Forgiving soothes the soul. Namaste. @yoga_girl #yogagirlchallenge  #peace #calm #forgiveness #joy #happiness #bliss #meditation #unconditionallove #love

Day 8: Manifesting Dreams—I must have been already been dreaming, thinking I got this up last night! My plan was to complete an actual vision board, but that unfortunately didn’t happen…but I did come across this photo I took from The 2014 California Roots Festival. It brought me right back to that happy place (which is probably why I KO’ed so quick!) Dreaming of that happy place, where life seems to move a little slower and life seems to feel a little lighter…I am the only one in control of my own soul. I will choose where I share my joy, my sorrows, my pain, my happiness. I dream to align my soul and my inner light together; colliding with each other so that I experience the encompassing feeling of happiness and pure joy wash throughout my veins. I want to feel love and passion woven so closely that it bounds together my soul with another’s—without force or negative energy, just pure uninterrupted love. Love: so powerful, it takes an astronomical force to interrupt its beauty in all it’s magnitude. I will be me. A lover, a mom, a friend, a soul. A soul on the infinite run for happiness, peace and pure love. @yoga_girl #yogagirlchallenge #happiness #soulful #soul #chakras #beauty #spiritual #passion #joy #peace #manifestingdreams#manifestingdreamsintoreality  #art #MorphisArt MorphisArt.com]

Day 6: Start A New Routine - After a brutal case of the Mondaysat work, an extremely long day of unloading and loading up our apartment to clean the floors, and a nostalgic walk down a boxed version of memory lane, I somehow still managed to bake homemade pizza and salad . New routine to attempt: oil pulling, accompanied by 20minutes of journal reflection. Despite being up so late and feeling so sleepy, I am still thankful for the early morning lemon water and sun salutations I managed to squeeze in this early morning. Off to rest my eyes for another reflective and focused day. @yoga_girl #yogagirlchallenge #peace #habits #oilpulling #journaling #reflect #gratefulness #gratitude #love

Day 3: Random of Kindness - While perusing and eating my way through the farmer’s market, my eyes caught the attention of these beauties. Sunflowers, yellow and bold-faced. They reminded me of practicing yoga. Standing tall, absorbing the sun’s energy, and radiating beauty. So, I bought them in hopes they would bring joy and brighten someone else’s day, like they did for me. Got home from the market, unloaded my goodies, and dropped these off at a neighbor’s front door with a sweet little note. Positivity, kindness, and joy. Pass it on. One love. @yoga_girl #yogagirlchallenge #randomactofkindness #onelove #positivity #peace #kindness #joy #bright #yellow #sunflowers #beautiful #happy
