Woke up craving this delicious smoothie 😅
It’s a real meal! The coconut milk & hemp protein made me really full! The blue color came from blue spirulina algae with are packed with nutrients for your gut, immune system, pretty much your over all health! Spirulina or Chlorella are great supplements of your looking for a plant based B12 or protein source! They have the whole range of amino acids, so our body can built protein with it 💪 great bioavailability!
@shelbycarol asked a couple of days before if anyone else is already getting excited about the next morning’s coffee while lying in bed the night before. 😄 and I’m 100% guilty of that!
I’m not dreaming about my coffee but about whatever breakfast will look like the next morning... I get soooo excited I want the night to be over ASAP 😂
Is anybody else with us?
Any other food addicts out there?
Self-worth has been a hot topic this week. This is an area where so many women struggle. I would love to help you breakthrough your self-worth barrier.
Do you know your value?
When we struggle with our self-worth we struggle to say "no". When we struggle with our self-worth we attract people into our lives who don`t see our value.
There are many women out there who are being held back in so many areas of their lives because they don`t believe they are worthy.
Worthy of LOVE.
Worthy of SUCCESS.
Worthy of FRIENDSHIP.
Worthy of CONNECTION.
Worthy of an ABUNDANT LIFE and the list goes on.
If this is you right now, we need to have a chat.
✨Meditation✨ Protection ✨ Road Opening✨ always been hard for me to let my friends help me. But we can help each other in so many ways, and sometimes it's the little things. Favorite stone right now from @jhohos ✨key charm given to me by @occult_lust found and given to her by @mama_soybean. Three awesome ladies who've supported me and made a big impact in my life here in Portland. Grateful for the little things. I was super sad and lonely with a busted wing last snowy winter. Winter is looking a lot better already this year. Love those even number years. #optimism#friends#love#grateful#letyourfriendshelpyou#youhavesupport#youareloved#youareworthy
// Transformation Tuesday // the changes are inside my friends 💜 .
This is a photo of a girl who is no longer bound by a number on the scale, her double digit pant size or the inches around her waist. It's a look of freedom from restriction and guilt and punishment. This feeling of peace and self-acceptance can't be measured by a number!
The world needs less diet trash to "fix our size" and more messaging that helps people feel worthy of self-care. #bethechange#youareworthy#selflove#selfacceptance#allshapesandsizes#strengthandbeauty
My heart dropped to my stomach when I heard what she said.
She told me what I had feared (and knew deep down), but never really wished to hear. My former co-worker said, “Cherie, I heard whispers from other teachers around the 7th grade area when you taught there. The things they said - I just realized they didn’t really KNOW you; otherwise, they wouldn’t have said those things.”
I am a former teacher. I miss the kids and I still believe I was a great teacher, despite what any colleagues may have said.
I followed my heart and quit teaching because I had other dreams, and I haven’t looked back.
But can I be real? It really stung to hear that others said bad things behind my back. Old feelings flooded in - the feelings that lack confidence & fear what others think.
But then I stopped and remembered I have a purpose to serve & empower others. And that means I cannot live in my old headspace. I am renewed and victorious and capable and worthy.
And so are you.
Please listen: what others say about you is a reflection of them, not you! If you are being your truest self and doing your best, then let it go. Don’t give negativity any space in your life. You’re worth more.
Below, tell us one passion or dream you have! We will cheer you on and never tear you down! 💖
I grew up as someone who is very insecure about my lack of knowledge... of life and of the world in general.
I grew up in a very well protected and friendly environment. My nature can be very naive, careless, and forgetful at times. I work hard and study hard. But you can say sometimes I lack "street" knowledge. Growing up, I was always the one being taken care of and protected by my peers and by my family around me. Sometimes it felt like I was living in a bubble. It felt as if one day I step out of this bubble, I wouldn't be able to survive on my own.
In the past few years, however, I have really started to face my fears and try to do as many things that scare me as possible (and let me tell ya, there are lots😂). These are actually simple things like driving, traveling alone, talking to strangers, living by myself...
I also try to gain life knowledge and be up to date on current news as much as possible. I use @Google home to listen to podcasts on daily news, tips in my career field, and perhaps the most importantly, self improvement talks that inspire and provide practical tips for me to be better every day.
Listening to podcasts, along with reading, are my two top sources in gaining knowledge and staying connected with the rest of the world in my ordinary 5-9 work life.
In my profile, I am sharing with you my 5 favourite podcasts on self improvement that I listen to on a daily basis...Let me know if you also love any of the podcasts that I'm sharing 😄
Most of us are afraid of the dark, afraid of what we cannot see but may feel around us. The good new is, power is born in darkness. You cannot see what is going on. At times, you will be able to feel it, but you will not always know what it is. The key to making it through the darkness is belief and trust. Believe that something good will come out of the darkness, and trust that it will. #iyanlavanzant#inspiration#motivation#goodenergy#youareworthy#fixmylife#Repost @iyanlavanzant with @insta.save.repost • • • #AllowingLifeToFlow#AgapeLife

Anyways, M E D I T A T I O N • U P D A T E!
A day of first: today was the first day that I did a "self-sit" (made up term), meaning I didn't use a recorded guided meditation. While still using my @insight , I set a timer for 10 minutes, picked some ambience music, a closing bell, and just...sat. And breathe. I usually focus on the rising and falling of my stomach as that is the easiest place to feel my breath. I got distracted a number of times, but I made it through the 10 minutes! It is a little different doing it yourself versus having a voice in a your ear. Right now, I actually like it a lot better.
I also tried chanting meditation from Nichiren Buddhism which I'm currently learning about. Two minutes in the morning and evening; baby steps since I'm not used to an active/verbal style of meditation. Excited to build on this in the months to come!
Do you meditate? Why or why not?
Discussing mental health is not something we do often, discussions about it are often only normalized in very extreme situations, but few are aware of the very mentally draining things that occur on a day to day basis. Whether you're trying to loose weight, get fit, study, have a conversation, or get out of bed, there are days where your mind creates a barrier between you and what you want to accomplish. My personal struggle is something I won't share at risk of triggering painful memories or experiences for others, but this quote really means something to me because it denotes the idea that inner struggle and inner strength are the most important. Recently someone called me a fighter, and I think too often we are made to feel weak, lazy, and guilty that our minds make us unable to do certain things in our day to day life. But, every day we wake up and try to face the world, we are fighting a silent battle. We may loose fights, but if you can look back on your week and say: I may have lost many battles, but I won some, then you are a fighter. Don't underestimate or undervalue the work and the effort that you put in every day. Your struggle is valid, and any effort you put in to fight that internal battle is huge, important, and makes you one of the strongest people out there. There's my #latenightthoughts or my #procrastination ? I'm not too sure 😂
When I was 12 years old I was getting bullied by a boy I had a crush on.
He would yell from across the hall for everyone to hear that I was the stupidest and ugliest girl in the world. .
At times he would walk towards me smiling, and my heart will flutter because I would think maybe this time he really just wants to talk to me, but he would only say more of the insults of how ugly and stupid I was. .
The thing is, at that age, deep down I believed those things about me. I believed I was really stupid. I believed I was really ugly. And this belief stayed buried inside if me for years to come. In my 20s I wasn't conscious of it but it was always there. .
When I started healing myself this was one of the things that I healed very early on. For the first time after 18 years I was dealing with it and healing from it and loving the 12 years old me. There's no more residue feeling from that time, there's only love and love and love for myself. And feelings of confidence that shines through me everyday. .
Only few people in my life know about this, I never talked bout it at the time and I didn't talk about it until I was in my late 20s. So why am I sharing this now?
I woke up today with a strong urge to share it. Maybe there's someone out there who's gone through the same and they need to hear this. .

No this is not a “look at me” post .... it’s a look what’s POSSIBLE post!
5 Years ago did it hurt 😞 my heart when people would roll their eyes at me, call me crazy, tell me this was just another one of those “pyramid things that will never work and is a waste of time”..... when people would ignore my messages and mistake for me wanting anything from anyone other than to share a gift and help! Not gonna lie I’m a “soldier” for sure but still hurt my feelings nevertheless..... but somehow through the grace of God I can now say, I listened to my own gut, focused on what was possible and kept my head down .... focused on helping those who wanted it even when they didn’t BeLive in them-selfs or see what I could see in them. Focused on helping to share and educate others on product safety which was something so foreign to me!
5 years later to say I’m grateful that I told myself “what if it does work?” instead of “what if it doesn’t work?” Would be an understatement!!!! #followyourdreams#helpothers#workhard#dreambig#dontgiveup#youareworthy#godisgood#gtc2018 !!!! #limitless#mompreneur#entrepreneur#doyou#beyou
I love teaching. It feels right, like I'm supposed to be here, doing this. Spreading the power of this practice to anyone who will let me. I'm grateful for each of these students that keep coming back so I can do what I love.
I stole this because sometimes you come across something that reminds you that everything will be okay. Through pain we can find purpose... if we allow it. That life is a beautiful struggle with twists and turns that bring us in and out of both good and bad times. Understand and appreciate the hard times as they will make you that much more thankful for the good ones. Life can either move around us or through us. Choose to let it move through you. Love it for what it is. Take the hard and easy times and let it mold your character and make you a better human being. We can get through anything if we silence the mind and allow ourselves to heal. #livelife#appreciateallexperiences#lifelessons#loveyourselffirst#youareworthy 💕
