Truth in advertising. #justsaying 😅 The things we tell ourselves create our internal reality. While I'll never know yours, here's a tiny (baby Yoda?) sized peak into mine. 😬 . . I used to get really uncomfortable when anyone called me "cute". I'm 6' tall, people told me I'm "tough", and I didn't think those things were capable with "cute". I wouldn't wear pink or be girly because I was scared to look stupid. . . Well, screw that. I'm cute. You are, too. This is a small example, but I'll share more if you do. What lies does your brain tell you? . . #lies #cute #curlyhairdontcare #curlygirl #curlyhair #babyyoda #naturalbeauty #nomakeup
This is me, doing something scary. 😆 ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ I wrote an eBook last summer and never published it; and I promised @michaelbaker33 I'd put it out asap. Link in bio to my website - "You: Care and Maintenance" is up for free. It's a short eBook about learning how to take care if your unique self and developing your systems for doing so. Sharing it for your feedback. More on the way.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #dowhatscaresyou #free #selfcare #adulting #writer #writersofinstagram
Current mood: 🦄 No makeup 🐉 No hair color 🦅 No negative self-talk 🛌 Just a girl on her bed, feeling her own vibes. .. .. Magical creatures don't have to change themselves to work magic, they just 💫ARE💫 magic. Know who else is magic? 👏every 👏one 👏of 👏us. . . We are each a unique combination of skills, experiences, and interests that has never happened before. and will never happen again. That means whatever you have to contribute to the world can only come from you... and hiding means you're depriving the world of your contributions...and isn't that just selfish?🤔😉 . . So step up! Step out! How are you going to pull your weight this week? . #selfie #sundaymorning #deepthoughtswithcoachdar #curlygirl #curlyhair #bighair #backtobed #dreamcatcher
The axiom "don't meet your heroes" does not apply to @angeladuckw - what a delight it was to get to be her student! . . We use our heroes to bring out better versions of ourselves. To model the things we don't know if we're capable of. Angela modeled the kind of instructor I want to be: comfortable, funny, humble, curious, and geez is she smart! . . When have you met someone you admire who exceeded your expectations and what did you learn from them? . . #characterlab #grit #gritparagon #angeladuckworth #hero #meetyourhero #tt #throwbackthursday
How are you keeping yourself in balance? (and helping those you love to do the same?) ... So often now we hear about work/life balance - I think there's more to it than that. What about the balance of screen to sleep? Group and solo time? A balanced diet? Each of us has different needs to consider; but we're presented with information as if there's a "right" way. ... ⚖ How do you keep yourself in balance? ⚖ Where do you struggle to? ⚖ What questions come to mind when you like about juggling all the elements in your life? ... #worklifebalance #deepquestions #findbetterquestions #balance #lunaalignmentyoga #acroyoga #balance #yoga #beach #beachlife #legsfordays ... 🧘‍♀️ with me is @alliolson23 | we were studying at @luna_alignment_yoga with @talswissa |
Going into Monday like 🥊🦁 . . We've all got beasts to wrestle. Things we want to accomplish that seem to big; or inner struggles that are overwhelming.
