self love

  • Love yourself as you are here and now

    You can still bloom at the same time

    There will be days when loving being yourself will be tough.

    Sometimes all you can do is love a tiny bit more than yesterday and that is more than enough.

    Patience is a must, it’s one of the greatest forms of self love.

    It’s beautiful to acknowledge there are things you’d like to work on and improve whilst simultaneously blooming at the same time.

    5 self love mindset shifts to implement

    5 self love mindset shifts to implement 🧡👇🏽

    Reframe self-criticism into self-compassion.

    Try giving yourself credit for how much you try instead of being so critical of everything you do.

    Love looking at yourself in the mirror and not picking out all the flaws you see.

    Love getting up after you’ve been knocked down.

    Love eating what you crave for instead of the lower calorie option.

    Love that your triggers no longer have a hold over you after all your personal growth and development.

    Most of all, love yourself as you are here and now in the present moment.

  • If only you could see

    If only you could see...

    If only you could see yourself from the eyes of others.

    If only you could see yourself from the heart of others.

    If only you could see yourself from the soul of others.

    If only because in the moments you find yourself unworthy and unlovable – you would see, feel and know the truth.

    That truth is, that you are so deeply loved and cared for.

    Thank you for being you

    The way you see the world is so uniquely beautiful.

    The way you walk into a room lights it up.

    The way you laugh adds more joy and soulful positivity into this world.

    All these things that you don’t see in yourself, others do.

    When you face tough battles within yourself, it is my hope that you remember this all 🧡

  • The beautiful breakthroughs

    On growth...

    Maybe it’s the mishaps, mistakes and melancholy that lead to the most beautiful and unexpected spiritual breakthroughs.

    Growth isn’t always about the gains.

    It’s also about the losses.

    The Great Unlearning

    Like losing the weight of others’ opinions, your appetite for ego, your old self, the past and your mistakes, pleasing others, relationships that have run their course, self-criticism, self-sabotage, and your fixed mindset.

    This is what The Great Unlearning is all about 🔥

  • Better days are coming

    Better days are coming

    Some days in life will be harder than others and that’s okay. 

    Some days will feel heaver than others and that’s okay.

    Some days you’ll be convinced that the pain and suffering you feel will last forever.

    It won’t.

    Better days are coming, beautiful soul.

    They always do.

    It may take time, but it’s always worth the wait.

    The light will trickle in.

    Your heart will mend piece by piece.

    You’ll remember why you loved life so much in the first place.

    To be truly alive...

    When the darkness within seems like it will take over.

    It’s when we truly break, that we are cracked open for the light to come in.

    Love.

    Light.

    That is what it means to truly live.

    To be truly alive.

  • Let your light shine

    Shine bright, beautiful soul

    Some people will not see you not because you don’t shine but because they do not want to acknowledge your light.

    For others you will be too bright and that’s okay.

    They will find your light blinding and would rather you dull to a small flicker instead of being the sun that you are.

    Shine bright, beautiful soul.

    Your light will glow...

    Never let another’s darkness impact your light 🌟

    It doesn’t matter if you don’t receive applause or validation, what you are doing by being yourself and contributing to this world is important.

    Your light will glow and others will want to harness and cultivate their own because of you 🕯️

  • Mourning the past you

    You are allowed to change

    As you work on yourself and reach the next level in your growth, don’t be surprised if you feel joy and sadness at the same time.

    As we evolve and let go of our past self, we mourn who we were.

    It’s normal to grieve over the past you, yet still grow into who you are now.

    You are allowed to change.

    Your identity isn't fixed

    The past you that put up with bad behaviour, that gave so much without return, that always needed something or someone to feel complete, that was blind to what was unfolding before your eyes, that self- sabotaged and the past you that deserved better not only from yourself but those around you.

    It’s normal to grieve over the past you and to love the past you, yet still grow into who you are now. You are allowed to change; your identity isn’t fixed.

  • Thank your past self

    Thank your past self

    In this lifetime, we will mourn and hold funerals for all the versions of ourselves that we’ve been.

    You aren’t who you were in the past anymore.

    You are who you are now, here, in this present moment.

    Thank your past self for helping you survive.

    Thank your past self for being strong and enduring pain.

    Thank your past self for being brave.

    The Great Unlearning...

    Thank your past self for getting back up and continuing to try.

    Thank your past self for making you who you are today.

    Thank your past self for making mistakes which you’ve learned from.

    Thank your past self for letting you move forward.

    Thank your past self because even if they no longer resonate or align with who you are today… you couldn’t have done it without your past self.

  • You are the light

    You are the power...

    Tell me, beautiful soul, are you exhausted from carrying all those labels and stories that have defined who you are?

    You are not your trauma.

    You are not your illness.

    What you’ve been through is valid.

    No matter how bad someone else has it, no matter what anyone else says, no matter what anyone else thinks, no matter who believes you, you are resilience beaming through.

    You are the bravery that roars.

    You are the wisdom books can’t contain.

    You are the light that continues to shine.

    You are the power beyond measure.

    Shine on

    People may be jealous of your light, but they won’t be jealous of your journey through darkness.

    Never let another’s darkness impact your light.

    Some people will not see you not because you don’t shine, but because they do not want to acknowledge your light.

    For some your light will be too bright and that’s okay.

    Shine on ✨

  • All about perspective

    What are you going to do with your time?

    To someone, you’re young and to another, you’re old.

    There is comfort and privilege in getting older.

    You become wiser, you become more aware of what you want, and you know who you are.

    You’ve experienced pain and loss.

    You’ve taken things for granted and have found a new way to approach life with less fear and regret.

    It’s all relative anyway and, at the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter what someone else thinks.

    What truly matters is what you do with your time, here and now in the present moment.

    Use your time wisely and intentionally with all your heart.

    And just maybe if you’re one of the lucky ones, you’ll get another shot, chance or opportunity in life – but it isn’t guaranteed.

    So, what are you going to do with your time?

    The choice is yours...

    When it comes to time this is the one thing you have to realise ⏱️

    It’s all about perspective.

    Anything can change in a moment,

    It can slow down or speed up.

    It can be painful or pleasant.

    The choice is yours.
