There are only so many tomorrow’s. I know it seems like there is always time to do things. But time goes so fast and nothing is promised. Don’t let the fear of unknown stop you from creating a happy life for yourself. From creating the future that you deserve. If you are stuck, reach out. I’ve been going through many changes, good and bad. We can support each other. This time next year we can have a different life ❤️
Cycle day: 23 - enchantress
Archetype: III tarot card. Empress.
Don’t act like sawdust when you are Oak Wood. Acknowledge your light and shine shameless.
Don’t believe anything I say. This is my empirical experience. Observe, introspect and compare. .
🔻🔻🔻 4 PHASES of the women cycle brief: 🌓 MAIDEN(between period and ovulation) - Fresh, social, outwarded, focused on oneself for exterior goals 🌕 MOTHER(ovulation) - Emphatic, loving, social, outwarded, generous, focused on others 🌗 ENCHANTRESS(between ovulation and period) - The introspective journey begins, focused on oneself for interior knowledge, magic, powerful, in between the material and the invisible world 🌑 WITCH(period) - Dreamy, intuitive, in contact with a powerful source of wisdom, immersed in the invisible world. Place to let go of the old and to set the bases of the new. .
🔻🔻🔻 ARCHETYPE: (in Jungian theory) a primitive mental image inherited from the earliest human ancestors, and supposed to be present in the collective unconscious. It manifest now and again on the physical plane. It creates patterns. Here I personify my mood state by writing an archetype according to it. It is a helpful tool to understand situations and behaviours from a broader view and insight. Also to improve in certain areas. I use an opened perspective where I spot and invent new archetypes. Those born from a comparison of my mood with a general or mainstream known character, situation or topic. It could be called Pop Archetyping.
This comparison speaks for itself 😉
After years of hating my body, trying to shrink, being consumed by health and fitness, having disordered eating habits and a terrible relationship with food, I can proudly say that I have found MY happy place.
I have no idea what I weigh and no idea how many calories I eat per day, but I do know that I am happy, healthy, balanced, confident and content. -
No more fake smiles here 😁
P.S. A new vlog is now up on my YouTube channel (link in my bio) 🎥

Let’s be honest we all have that one friend who says you are beautiful when you feel fat and frumpy, half asleep aka dead to the world with a mane of an untamed lion 🦁
Maybe it’s time to shift the mindset and acknowledge their compliments instead of shutting them down with negative comments like yea but my thighs are still chubby or my boobs are getting smaller... maybe ... just maybe by accepting such compliments I will start to see the beauty in myself ❤️ Who else can relate?
YES!!! This really resonated with me. I used to make pretty much every decision about what I looked like based on what boys thought, based on boys liking me. I couldn't be around a guy I liked without makeup on, I would change myself if they fancied someone else to be more like them, I would base what selfies I post based on the guy I like seeing it etc etc Boys always rejected me in my childhood/teenage years and it made me feel ugly and worthless. I didn't love myself. I thought my self worth depended on if boys fancied me/approved of me. FUCK THAT! What people think of me has nothing to do with me, the only person that needs to love and approve of me,is me! It is such a blessing to finally love me! And not need anyone's approval but my own🙌🙌🙌💖💖💖💖👑👑👑👑👑
Feeling a little homesick, insecure, tired and like I want to stuff my face with a huge pizza tonight so I thought I’d post this picture to remind myself of how far I’ve come over the past few months 🙃 It’s sad to say but I remember the days I would refuse to get out the car just to put fuel in if I didn’t have a full face of makeup on 😳 How things have changed eh and I’m not afraid to say I’m super proud of myself 👌🏼 We spend way to much time thinking of other people’s judgements on how we look and feeling insecure about the things that actually make us beautiful and unique. One of my best experiences so far on my adventure was living with 14 other people, not wearing an ounce of make up, hair scraped back the whole time and just been accepted and loved for who I am on the inside 💕 I’m posting this as everyone has there down moments and insecurities! It’s so easy to hide how we really feel via Instagram as we only post the things we want people to see. As well as my fitness journey I’m also on a self love journey so here’s to keeping it real 👊🏼✌🏼P.S I’m sorry if I don’t really to messages straight away, time difference and life get in the way at times but I’ll always get back to you 😘#selflove#insecurities#fitness#bareface#honesty#happiness#loveyourself#nomakeup#gym#selflovejourney#beyourself#cityfitness#wellington#newzealand#travelgram#positivevibes#homesick#keepitreal#selfacceptance#selfworth
Last night we met a bully. She was this terribly drunk woman at a casino who thrived on berating every person that came to stand at her roulette table. From insulting people’s attires to their bellies to their hairdo’s. She was very proud of her scathing one-liners. She decided to insult my husband who was bullied throughout his childhood & is a strong advocate against bullying. He engaged with this woman & stood up for every person she insulted. By the time he was done & this woman was escorted out of the casino, the crowd around us applauded him. As a victim of bullying myself, it was awe inspiring. I saw this post this morning & realized how striking the parrallels are between the bullying I saw last night & how our minds often bully our bodies. We are our own worst critics - & not in a constructive way. We break ourselves down then wonder why we feel so broken. I learned a lot from the experience that can help mediate the relationship between a bullying mind & its body.
1: Confrontation is uncomfortable. Acknowledging that your mind has become abusive is an uncomfortable realization. Don’t shy away from the discomfort. Allow it to fuel you.
2: Bullies are relentless. They are usually seasoned and they have stamina. You literally have to keep chipping away at them no matter how much it seems like your protests are not hitting home. That voice will keep resurfacing. Keep pushing it back and drowning it out. The bully will eventually crack.
3: Bullies need allies. Bullies cannot function without support. Starve your bully of its allies. Remove any stimuli that make it stronger - pics, people, environments, messages. Remove them all.
4. Others are watching. They are secretly rooting for you. They too are looking for a hero & taking your power back is something they will applaud.
So there it is. Don’t take shit from anyone. Don’t take shit from those parts of your mind that no longer serve you. Show them the door. Escort them the fuck out so that you can stand up for the essence of you - that never deserved it in the first place 💪🏼 #selflove#selfworth#bully#standupforyourself#standup#stopbullying#escortthemout#beaninspiration#knowyourpower
Welcome to my office ! As you can see it is very untidy and not very spacious at all, it doesn’t have fancy lights and brand new equipment all over the place but I can tell you right now that I’m going to fix this place right up and make this place neat as hell so I can really use this as my home gym. I’ve got everything I need right here. Why pay $60 to $100 a month on a gym membership plus time and petrol to get there when I can have it all in my back yard. Think about it. If you can motivate yourself it’s worth it. Enjoy the video haha.
Jeder Mensch sollte gewisse Art von Selbstachtung haben. Man soll sich selbst wertschätzend behandeln, sich selbt versorgen, kümmern und pflegen. Psychisch, physisch, egal wie auch immer, Hauptsache , Mann vernachlässigt sich nicht selbst.
Erst dann kann man auch offen und bereit für andere Menschen und Situationen im Leben sein. Das Leben kommt einem offener entgegen und die Mitmenschen akzeptieren dich viel eher mehr mehr, als du denkst. In jeder Hinsicht! Nur dann kann man in gewissem Maße auch mit den anderen mitreden. Weil dann deine Gesagten Worte auch gehört werden. Deine Gesten besser gedeutet werden. Man will bzw wird dich dann auch besser hören und verstehen.
Nur wenn Du keine Achtung vor Dir selbest hast und schnell die Meinung anderer annimmst ohne sie zu hinterfragen, bist nicht mehr du selbst. Das Leben um dich herum nimmt dies war und du wirst somit auf einer Arten Weise umgangen. Man wird weniger wahrgenommen, und das führt zur ein schlechteres Selbstwertgefühl, und alles andere um dich herum wird auch nicht mehr so toll. Du kannst nicht mehr als Licht in die Welt hinein strahlen. Man wird dadurch einsam und allein. Man kann mit den neuen Herausforderung im Leben auch nicht mehr wachsen. Und man kann auch nichts mehr weitergeben.
Heute habe ich im Internet ein tolles Bild mit einem Text von einer Julia Schneider gelesen. Bzw gesehen. Das wollte ich gerne hierzu auf meine Seite posten, das genau zu dem passt was ich gerade geschrieben habe. =============================
Du solltest dir dein bester Freund sein.
Tu dir nicht weh,
vertrete deine Meinung....
Heul nicht mit den Wölfen und versuch nicht, sie zu beißen.
Wachse in der Stille.
Von Julia Schneider
