Reminder: when you're going through something hard let your tribe be there for you. 💗 In April 2018, on my last day in Thailand, the 🐈 I'd had since college passed away. This, on top of a divorce and losing my home, felt like a cosmic kick in the teeth. The next morning something beautiful happened. My friends crafted a ceremony to help me say goodbye, even though I'd never get to. 💖 Maybe this seems like a silly example; but that moment of community has stayed with me through some very rough times. It also taught me how much it means to show up. 🥰 Who/how are you showing up for in your life? 🤗 #tt #throwbackthursday #thailand #kohphagan #lunaalignmentyoga #friendship #support #love #hardtimes #beach #loss #tribe #wolfpack
This is a post about self acceptance 💖 The second picture is easy for me love. Smiling, styled, makeup on, looking cute and having just accomplished a long term goal. I'm proud of that Darlene. She's got her sh*t together. 👉 The first one is also me. That Darlene just woke up after a coma-like sleep. She's got no product in her hair, no makeup on, a ton of sh*t to get done and not enough time to do it all. 😳 . The truth: 😕 I used to fight them both. 🙁 I used to tell them both they weren't good enough. ☹ No matter what either of them did, the mind inside said it needed more. 😟 It was torture. 😥 But I learned: 💕 They're both beautiful. 💞 They both deserve care, good sleep, good food, hugs, and love. 💗 Both "Success Darlene" and "At Home a Mess Darlene" contribute beautiful things to the world. 🤗 It's not perfect. The journey is still in process . But I'm here to tell you, it's worth the work. 🥰 Love yourself. #selflove #selfcareisselflove #selfcare #selfacceptance #selfactualization #selfdevelopment #selfcareexperiment #coaching #coachmentality #coach #curlyhair #curlsforthegirls #curlyhairdocare #curls #curlygirl #naturalbeauty #healthynaturalhair #naturalhair #glasses #glassesgirl

💖💖💖 Peacefulness has become a commodity in our society. You take a pill (or edible 😏), you pay to speak with someone outside your circle, or pay for a drink. But when's the last time you sat outside and just felt the air? Or listened to the water? Or smelled the earth? 🌬🌊🏞 Students tell me they can't meditate because they find it physically uncomfortable. This #throwback is to a moment of peace in Thailand with @luna_alignment_yoga where I spread out on a rock, opened up, and took a long deep breath. 🧘‍♀️ #fivemin4fivedays #Meditation #throwbackthursday #tt #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyogattc #kohphagan #myarmpit #peace #selfcareisselflove #selflove #selfdevelopment #coaching #coach #challenge #meditationchallenge
I woke up like this... 😸 We think meditation has to be so serious! That it's a deep well of self examination and being uncomfortable and fidgeting. But it doesn't have to be. 🤔 What if meditation was about how nice a deep breath feels? About easing the tension from your body, like a massage from your own mind? Would you like the idea of it then? 🥰 Remember, whatever you think of meditation is just a story you've told yourself. Just because your brain said it doesn't make it true. 🤯 This week I'm hosting a 5 day meditation challenge. Commit to meditate for 5 min, 5 days in a row. Post to your feed or story (pictures or it didn't happen lol) tag @darlene.coach and #fivemin4fivedays 🙏💖 #Meditation #mindfulness #catlady #selflove #selfcare #selfcareisselflove #laugh #laughterismedicine #staywild #staywildgypsychild
There's a lot of misconceptions about meditation. 🤔 One that I encounter often is that you need to sit in a special way or chant special words. That there's a "right" way to do it; which can mean my students tell themselves they're doing it "wrong". 🥺 My opinion: unless you're meditating to reach enlightenment, or for another spiritual discipline, you can't do it wrong! 😃 In the context of wellbeing, meditation is about slowing down. Giving your mind and body a pause. At first that might feel uncomfortable, but trying it is already helping. 🙏 What are your questions about meditation? I'll be posting all week.
