I used to think that my worth is dependent upon what I produce. Now I know that I am worthy of love & goodness simply because I am alive on this Earth. It’s fascinating to reflect back upon how my self-worth feelings have impacted my daily actions and service..... I remember teaching math for 5yrs....there were many great days because I loved my students....but I’ll be honest, I felt stress often because I knew there were passions within me that could bless the world even more! And so....I requested a shift.....and my amazing boss/principal helped me teach classes that focused on leadership, communication, mediation, acceptance, & love. And life improved big time! My evolution continued....I began massaging part-time, I got married, I finished a 200hr yoga teacher training, I went on a 7mos honeymoon, and all along the journey-I kept sorting what was the best way to share my gifts with the world and how can I love myself better..... Now, I feel grateful to be working hard to grow a loving and successful business alongside @saranleoni and so many awesome friends and oily teammates! 🙏🏼 And our visions continue to expand as we grow.....our passion for helping others on their body-mind-spirit wellness journey is growing.....as we watch people’s lives improve we feel inspired to keep sharing and helping others on the path! We have exciting visions of California health retreats, men’s retreats to India and Spain, youth retreats, funding sustainable small farms, helping host an eco-unity music festival, supporting others financially to take a step toward living their dreams, and we will see what else comes as we focus daily on working hard to love humans & the Earth...... #fortunate #grateful #grounded #yogateachertraining #evolving #growthmindset #wecanwewillwemust #strongertogether #loved #heretolove #earthlove #weareworthy #wearefamily #wellnesscoach #businesscoach
Tell me, how do I define my worth? Is it how many likes I get on social media? Or how much money I earn? Maybe it’s how special my job is? Perhaps it’s my education Well I don’t get many likes Or make any money – let alone have a job I never went to a prestigious university Does that mean I’m not worth much? I know I can’t compare to anyone else Maybe it’s in how many pitches I climb Or the longest hike I ever done How fast I can run a mile Let’s look at physical strength I have to admit I’m not very strong I push myself to my limits, But it never seems to be very good I guess I’m not worth much Maybe worth is found in physical attraction The sexiness and meaning of piercings and tattoos The type of clothes I put on my body How I dress my lips and eyes Well if that’s the case then I’m really screwed I shop at Goodwill and Salvation Army I don’t know how to put on lipstick I don’t have any sexy piercings or tattoos I think I still look okay – no? I used to buy so many clothes I used to crave attention by likes I feel like a failure without having a job I searched for my worthiness in others My only “good” qualities are caring By putting others first I try hard to be a good person I am self-aware enough to know my flaws I always try really hard Does my love and effort make me worthy enough? Or do I still have to wonder about the next best thing?

Have you ever heard the following: "I am waiting for God to bring *the one* into my life." I have. AND I have actually said this myself. But is there really a person out there that is THE ONE? Yes and No. I'll explain... Calling a person THE ONE can place too much importance on one person to fulfill all of your needs. Because, let's face it, no human being, despite how great they are, is ever going to fulfill you in the way the Lord Jesus Christ can fulfill you. And no person was ever meant to fulfill all your needs. Marriage isn't about you. It's about Christ. So I think it's better to ask yourself these questions when considering if a person is the one: “With this person am I able to glorify God more?” “Will our relationship be honoring to God?” “Can I serve God better with this person or are they going to hinder my service to and walk with God?" Because there is no perfect love story other than the love story He's written for Christ and you. I have never been married. I am 41 and I have spent the past 11 years completing devoting my time to loving the Lord. It's been the most glorious (and needed ) gift. You see I was so broken when it came to relationships! So incredibly broken! But God has been healing me and making me content in Him. Today, I can honestly say I am content and that I love the Lord above all else. I have dreamed of getting to this place for so long. I wanted to rush it. But I had to let time do it's magic in me. So, as I have been falling in love with Jesus, I have been anticipating meeting a man that will be equally head-over-heels in love with the Lord first. This is why I say yes there is the one. "The one" will love the Lord above all else. "The one" will love that you love the Lord more than them. And "the one" will probably come into your life when you fully and completely know that your "sole purpose on earth is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever." (Psalm 86:9 ). So while you wait for "the one" be encouraged that you already have THE ONE and ONLY right now - the one that will never leave you or forsake you. The one that loves you with an everlasting love. The one who is the beginning and the end and his name is Jesus Christ
“Anti-Stupidity” ~ To those who don’t know, I have Asperger’s Syndrome, which is a high-functioning form of autism in which high intelligence still exists while an impairment of social interaction shares the same space. Also, to those from my past who are already aware, just because I have autism, it doesn’t mean that you have to focus on just that instead of who I am as a person, instead of the talents and qualities that I possess. It doesn’t mean that you should baby me just because of the general fact that it’s a disorder that I have, and that it impairs certain areas that are incorporated within the concept of development, i.e., speech and language skills. Being autistic may mean that I’m “retarded” or a “rubber” in your eyes, but I’m sure as hell not stupid. I can be in a mainstream learning environment and I’m not oblivious to the behavior you have around me versus that in which you have around other mainstream people. I know what baby-talk and underestimation sounds and looks like. Believe me, I’ve been there MANY times. I know to dig deep to detect the lies you’d tell me to keep me out-of-reach from a mainstream environment, such as in AP and Honors classes, sports, musicals, and college. I am NOT stupid. You are so wrong about me. You think you know me well enough, but your perceptions are those a doctor would think about a mentally-retarded person, or a person suffering from being in a vegetative state. Thanks a lot for making me feel incapable of living a normal life. Of having a future the same way any other person would. Of holding a good job, graduating college, getting married, raising children of my own, and taking care of myself and my family. I am NOTHING compared to how you think of me. — #art #drawing #sharpies #art #sharpieart #upclose #autistic #autismawareness #autism #iamnotstupid #spreadthewordtoendtheword #disabled #stillhuman #disabledpride #autisticpride #worthyoflove #cloud #puzzlepiece #puzzlepieces #notafreak #puzzle #doodle #distracted #compositionbook
We all like to stretch our wings! And so we all should. ❤️😀 I remember when I had no wings at all... every day was about survival: looking after young children, trying to protect them and coexisting with a person who called the shots and was unpredictably akin to a thunderous and at times frightening Lord of the Manor. Now life is so different! My girls can play and express themselves without fear. The first step to being free from that life was awareness about control, abuse and violence... and truly BELIEVING friends who told me I was indeed asking for things that no one should EVER have to ask for.

Hi. My name is Mandy Rita Tardif and I have lived with a hidden disability for the past seven years. On the outside I look healthy. But, due to many years of severe bulimia and addictions, I unknowingly did a lot of damage to the inside of my body. The pain has gotten increasingly worse since 2010. It is getting harder and harder to do normal daily activities. It's also almost impossible for me to draw anymore. This makes me sad sometimes. It also makes me angry sometimes. So this is why I am so grateful to know Jesus. Because without him I would be focusing on the pain and what I don't have and what I can't do. If I did not have him in my life I know I would turn into a bitter and depressed person. I would probably spiral downward and be addicted to painkillers. But instead I train myself to see the good. I don't take any meds. I don't turn to things I know could become crutches. I work out as much as my body will allow. I eat really healthy. I rest. I cry out to God when I feel like I just can't stand the pain anymore. He always comes! But most of all I think the thing I am most grateful for is that my pain has given me a new perspective on life and love. I am already an empathetic person but it's given me a new level of empathy for others that are going though pain. The pain has taught me how to accept things I don't want to and has helped me to slow down and see what's really important in life. I don't always appreciate being in pain but we are called to thank God in all things. When I thank God for everything I see that everything is for my good. And one day when I see my father in heaven he's going to take all my pain away. And he's going to take all of your pain away too. In the meantime let's be children that sing God's praises no matter what! Let's thank Him for everything and trust that he's always giving us exactly what we need and every moment. If I am never healed I will still sing! Why because, no matter what, even if I am in always in pain, He is GOOD!
WEDNESDAY AFFIRMATIONS // I AM WORTHY OF LOVE 🤜🏻💪🏼❤️ NO ONE ELSE can dictate nor decide whether you are worthy or love. Just FYI - you were freakin’ BORN WORTHY.

I’m in love with the idea of helping people. The thought about making someone else’s day even a little better brightens my whole day too - making other people smile makes me laugh and making them laugh makes me feel so amazing. I’m truly here for you – 100% – always trying to make you smile and feel loved and needed. Because that is who you are. I wanna help you to see it.

Life can feel pretty heavy sometimes huh?! I mean one second you can be flying high with excitement and gratitude and the next you can find yourself in the depths of despair. This is why it is so important to train your mind to remember what God has done in your life. Throughout the Bible God urges us to reflect on His goodness. Because, like the Israelites, we too can so easily forget that God parted the Red Sea and will provide manna for us every day. And you know what I love about our Father in Heaven! He is SO flippin' patient with us! He gave us His Holy Spirit to lovingly bring us back to Himself when we wander. God is so good! He will never stop loving us no matter how many times we forget His blessings or run away from Him. I have experienced this SO many times in my life but He keeps on sticking by my side. He is my biggest cheerleader! So what has He done for you? I beseech you to remember the wonders He has done in your life. Because I guarantee, even if it doesn't seem so, that He has done a bazillion things for you and will never ever stop. Love you! XO
I love giving. But why do people take things so personally if I don’t? . . I am not doing anything to hurt & disrespect you. I am doing, however, so much to please & nurture myself. . . If by doing so, my focus on myself is more intense than my focus on your issues, thank me. I am showing you what a healthy relationship with self may look like. . . People are used to having my back. And I love giving. But if I don’t, I don’t. . . I am a woman who decides who is worthy of her presence and who is not . . She does what she does. She gives as much as she can and wants - faithfully, lovingly, heartfully . .

This is Ben. He's a majestic gentle giant of a Clydesdale who loves to connect with whoever will stop to chat to him. He shares what he has and brings joy to others. There are "Bens" all around us... some have four legs, some have two legs. There are ones with fur or feathers - and human ones are everywhere - feeling invisible, unimportant and insignificant. By taking the time to listen to them, we'll make a huge difference in the world around us... and change our own lives for the better. It's catching ; ). Pass it on!

An inspiring "Shadow" If we had half the curiosity a dog like Shadow has, life wouldn't seem anywhere near as hard!Instead of having paralysing fear of the future, we'd have excitement for what's around the corner!

There's something as bad, or worse, than being physically hit: emotional abuse. It aims for the heart ❤️. It's insidious. Bruises don't show up... and yet it causes devastating and sometimes irreversible harm to BOTH the physical body and to the mind.

I bought this because my husband loves it and it is so comfy. But when I put it on all 8 could focus on was how my tummy isn't flat. (I'll admit I sucked in a little when I took this pic to send to my husband and I am not proud of it, but I am not perfect. ) I decided to wear it around the house as a test run and I could not stop obsessing about my stomach. It is so frustrating when BDD and one body part literally consume your thoughts. It is so frustrating to not see the sexy, beautiful, worthy person my husband sees in these photos. _________________________________ Today I worked really hard to say nice things about my body including my stomach and decided next time I go out I am going to try and wear this. _________________________________ Bad moments, bad days and bad weeks are okay as long as you keep trying your best to move forward. So that is what I am going to do. Because my goal is progress not perfection ✌️❤️ #progressnotperfection #bodydismorphicdisorder #selfimage #selfesteem #bddrecovery #worthyoflove #allbodiesarebeachbodies #embracethesquish #baddaysareokay #positivethoughts
💌Dear precious baby, welcome to the world! I am so thankful to your parents for giving you life... you are unique and beautiful and entirely worthy of all the love. Innocent and fragile little being, you deserve to be held gently and doted on wholly. I forgive the grown ups for not being fully attuned to your needs, as they were consumed by their own, but know this.... their choices were nothing to do with you and everything to do with them❤️🙌🏻👼🏼 What would you write to baby you? #worthyoflove #healing #letters2ourchildren #selfcompassion #boundaries #consciousparenting #chooselove
I'm sitting here one hour before I meet with my publisher in awe! Gratitude is coursing through my veins for everyone's prayers that helped me actually get to this place. I wrote a book! I did it! It is finished. I actually wrote a book! This was one of the most grueling yet rewarding I things I've ever done in my life. I've become a different person through the process of writing this book and I can't wait to show it to you. This book was created from the depths of my heart and soul and is my gift to the world for what has happened to me. This book is a 31 day journey. It is the same journey I went on in discovering how loved I am. By sharing bits of my story and coupling it with hand drawn coloring pages I've created beautiful and fun book for people who are desiring a deeper and more personal relationship with the Lord. Stay tuned for the release date. I was hoping to get it out by Christmas but it's looking like it might be more like Valentine's Day. We shall see.
Such an amazing post by @happyhealthy_bee 💖 ... TODAY IS THE DAY LADIES & GENTS 🙋🏼🌻✨. — It is the day that I am sacrificing something that has controlled my life, influenced my self judgment and self worth... my scales. Weighing myself became such an obsession, when I woke up in the middle of the night, I’d weigh myself. I’d stand on the scales first thing in the morning, during the afternoon, last thing at night, twice in the night and then I’d start all over again the next day. This is such an unhealthy (mentally and physically ) habit and every time I went into the bathroom... there it was. It was staring at me and tempting me to stand on, so it simply had to go. — As of today I will be embracing the development of my body by my eyes, my touch and how I feel, not by a number written on a battery powered machine. — How could something so small, so inadequate, have such a massive impact on our lives. If I stood on the scale and I’d gained, it would ruin my entire day... I’d dread the 8th of each month (period week ) because I’d be heavier. But why should that bother me? It’s natural! So what if I’m a few lbs heavier!, so what if I gain weight!, my body is my home and I need to look after it, embracing every single lb. I’m not allowing the scales to make me unhappy ever again, my life is based around laughter, love and happiness... not numbers. ♥️💪🏼
If it’s real, you won’t be up at night wondering if you matter. If it’s real, all words and actions will be reciprocated. If it’s real, it will add positivity to your life; not add stress to your life. If it’s real, you won’t be able to imagine your life without that person; in a healthy way. If it’s real, you won’t feel you have to mold them; you will also feel accepted as is. 🌸 Life is too short to settle. Don’t force someone into your life, just for the sake of having someone beside you. Everyone deserves to have ‘their person’ to walk through life with. We all deserve complete happiness. No relationship is perfect, but there should be a basic respect that comes into play. 🌸 You matter. Know that, and don’t allow toxic relationships to run your life. Being alone is much better than feeling alone in a relationship. Waiting > settling. 🌸 Xo, Lisa 🖤
I used to be so full of pride and the worst part about that was that I had no idea how much pride I had. Pride can be tricky. It can mask itself and look like all sorts of things. Pride is manipulation. I used to be a chameleon. I was one way with one group of people and then one way with another. Without realizing it, I was manipulating people to like me. Pride masks itself as martyrdom. I was the quintessential martyr - thinking it was my duty to suffer for Christ and killing myself to "get everything done." For years, mostly subconsciously, I tried to be perfect but what I have learned is that it courageous to accept your faults and failures. I have come to see that it is NORMAL to fail and make mistakes. It's actually HEALTHY. It's not something to be ashamed of. Failing is something to be PROUD of! It means you are TRYING! It means you stepped out of your comfort zone and did something different! I used to be afraid to fail. I thought it would mean that I WAS a failure through and through. But success and failure are not what I place my identity in. My identity is in Christ - the perfect unfailing one. So now, since I know who I am, I can be vulnerable and show my underbelly. Because I don't have to be perfect to be loved. I am already loved. And so are you! Thank you to @calledtocreate for their AMAZING devotional. I get it via email and LOVE it. My post today was inspired by them! “We live in such a way that no one will stumble because of us, and no one will find fault with our ministry. In everything we do, we show that we are true ministers of God. We patiently endure troubles and hardships and calamities of every kind. We have been beaten, been put in prison, faced angry mobs, worked to exhaustion, endured sleepless nights, and gone without food. We prove ourselves by our purity, our understanding, our patience, our kindness, by the Holy Spirit within us, and by our sincere love.” 2 Corinthians 6:3-6 (NLT )
As a daughter myself, I love mother and daughter shoot. And what touched me the most with this photo is about how Helena inspired her daughter. Very often I photograph young girls, and moms come to the reveal session being amazed and telling their daughter they are beautiful while the daughter feel insecure about some part of the images. And I say to the mom that you are beautiful I would love to photograph you too, mom goes like no no no I am not beautiful. So you see, if the mom feel not beautiful or good enough, how do they set example for their daughter to feel secure and beautiful despite their imperfections? Every parent want their kids to feel that they are beautiful, worthy of love despite their imperfections. Correct? And what is the best way to do that? It is that parent, especially moms start to feel they are beautiful enough, good enough for loving themselves and being loved. It is the best gift you can give to your kids. And Helena is already there! She and her daughter are so confident in front of my camera and that makes them shine! #valokuva #motherdaughter #igoodenough
God sees the hidden treasure inside of you. Anyone that walked away, treated you unworthy of love, in our new world “ghosted” you 👀😂, didn’t believe you were qualified for the job and the list goes on.... wasn’t for you. And as God is continuing to build you, he’s building up people, jobs, and situations that you never could of imagined for yourself. Just stay humble, patient, and kind as a complete reflection of him and an empty vessel to serve. You will be restored ❤️Happy Monday good people! #mondaymotivation #mondaymood #lovemonday #faith #hope #love #youareworthy #worthyoflove #worthyofhonor #hisson #hisdaughter #helovesus #hesfaithful #hesjust #jehovahjireh #hesmolding #hesbuilding #trusttheprocess #letgo #hesgotyou
It's #LOVEnote Monday! October 16, 2017 – #theLOVEproject365 Honour your mind and body with self-care. There was a period in my life when I resisted creating enough time and space for my own self-care. I knew it was important to sleep, exercise, and eat well, but I somehow managed to say “yes” to everyone and everything else. Despite knowing there were only so many hours in a day, I alluded myself to thinking that “tomorrow” I’d fit in me. It rarely happened. At some point at the intersection of utter depletion and frustration I came to terms with my priorities. I discovered the truth. I could not care for others, respond to situations, or show up fully for my commitments, if I wasn’t caring for myself. I was too lethargic with mental blocks to be able to do so. Something needed to change. Something had to change . . .

I used to tell myself I didn't deserve real love. In my eyes, I was fat and ugly and therefore nobody would love me for me. As it turns out, real love found me at 200lbs and it supported me to goal weight. 4 (official ) years spent together today, picking up my wedding dress this past week, dancing like goofs last night (paying for it today ) and feeling like the luckiest girl in the bar to be in this guys arms. So full of love today and damn does it feel good ♡ . . #worthy #worthyoflove #fiance #bridetobe #bestfriend #love #wwbridetobe #wwcambassador #anniversary #wisdom #engagement #engaged #women #loveyourself #grateful #lucky
Abusers remorse is not real. It's like big foot, it's a myth. He/she does not love you. They love their need of you. The need to control and manipulate someone or something. People that are truly remorseful do not repeat the same actions over and over again. #youdeservebetter #nomoretears #lovedoesnthurt #chooselife #saynotodomesticviolence #gethelp #yourlifematters #worthyoflove #powerinourchoices #justsayno #sorrynotsorry

It's easy to feel like you're not good enough in today's world. Check out my new blog post for some ideas that helped me overcome that feeling. Link in bio.
Transformation, self-love, personal responsibility can be downright ugly at times. Why? Because, If we are doing it honestly, with the intent to create new patterns and better lives, all the dark or disowned stuff has to come up to the surface for transmutation. And not so we can "just observe" it or name it or call it not real, but actually so we can love the part of us that was in survival or starving for love, and heal that part of us so we can let it go. • The point is, shedding a old layers sometimes means it gets worse or more uncomfortable before it gets better, but I promise it gets better. • All love. All truth.
Quote above is from @manion c AWESOME book titled, "God's Patient Pursuit of My Soul" ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••My light and my potential I just didn't see, because I wanted to be anyone else but me." - Mandy Rita Tardif •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” - Marianne Williamson My sweet sisters in Christ, it's to shine!
To go along with my little Christmas theme today I thought I'd post a face painting design inspired by the movie Frozen. Let it go. Let it go. Let it snow. Let it snow. Actually don't let it snow because I don't like snow. Well, I like it in a snow globe but that's it. Paint by me. Photo by me. Model: me.

... or the love isn't as exciting... or you're embarrassed to tell your friends that he can't afford the ring you want... does this impact how you feel? Be honest. 🤔Using diamond rings as a symbol of our love benefits the ring makers the most. 💍💎💞💰💰This high expectation of using diamonds as a symbol of love carries a negative energy with it that does not belong in the realm of love. Sure there's nothing wrong with giving your loved one a gift. But when we attach our worth and stories to things, we set ourselves up for unrealistic expectations and disappointment. 😔Can you imagine feeling "less than" because someone else's ring is bigger...house is bigger... car is better.... oh... yeah. We can. #diamondsarejustrocks #wevebeenduped #loveislove #womenempoweringwomen #womenempowerment #twentysomething #twentysomethinglife #20something #canvalove
Satan lies! Don't listen and agree with him. Receive Jesus' blood that was shed on the cross and receive God's love ❤️.

October is Down syndrome awareness month and issues like this is why it’s so important that we bring about awareness of people with Down syndrome. Not educating your children or other adults (in this case ) inhibits people from learning that despite our differences and diagnosis, we all want the same thing...for this little boy, he just wanted to play with the other kids and be happy and he has every right to have that. #mad #downsyndromeawareness #worthyoflove #worthyofhappiness #worthyoflife
I do not negotiate who I am with the world. The second I try and change who I am for someone else, is the moment I betray myself. . . Changing who we are for others can help us to “fit in” but we will never truly belong. The only way to find true belonging is to find love and acceptance within you. The type of love and acceptance that can not be bought or traded with others. This comes by being our authentic self, not a version of ourselves we have molded to fit what others want/expect of us. . . When I became really clear on who Randi is and what her purpose is, I found my authentic self again. For years I had been trying to be something else. Always searching for love and acceptance every where else but where it truly mattered. I thought my worth and value were tied to looking a certain way and if I didn’t look that way, I was unworthy of love and acceptance. . . Now, at almost 32 years old, I finally know who I am, and I belong to myself for the first time in my life. I know my value. I know I am worthy of love. . . Do me a favor and tell yourself, “I love you” today. Double tap or comment below if you took the challenge.
Thank you everyone for all your good thoughts and prayers for our Billy boy. As you can see, he is on the mend! He had asked to be released to his bachelor pad enclosed patio, but once out there changed his mind and was very happy to settle into the crate on the dining room table. I think he is starting to like the idea of being inside. That's a heated pad he's rolling around on. He's decided he likes that too! Special appearance by Charlie (one of the "forever kittens" ) giving me a corrective nip for not paying enough attention to him 😊😸Happy Caturday everyone! ❤️ #furfamilylife #BillyBoy #feelingbetter #FIV #stomatitis #formerstray #dentalsurgery #formerferal #tuxedo #tuxedokitty #worthyoflove #adoptastray #lovethiscat #conejovalleyvet #happycaturday #caturday
Through trial and error, making mistakes, hearing no, getting quiet, listening to my deepest heart's cry and not the opinions of others and pursuing what I thought I wanted only to find out reality isn't what I thought it was going to be... These are all ways that I have discovered who I am. So who am I? I am a woman that has been forever changed by one man's self-less and relentless love - Jesus has my whole heart. I am an artist that is passionate about using my God-given ability to bring hope to the world. I am a woman that is equally introverted as she is extroverted. I am better one on one then in groups. I require a lot of alone time to fill my well back up. I have an insatiable craving to learn everything I can about life and people. I must have integrity in all I do. My past is my greatest teacher. It was hard but I am forever grateful for the convictions it has gifted me with. I can get through anything and I always land on my feet. I have more grit and determination than anyone I have ever met. I love with my whole heart. Tears and pain don't scare me. I run into the storms holding Jesus's hand. I have a dream that I can change the world for the better. I do things afraid knowing that by doing so I won't be afraid anymore one day. I will always listen to my heart even if that means I am not liked or understood. I see strength in those that ask for help and I think vulnerability is beautiful. I know how to protect my heart. I know how to love myself well. I will always choose the path that leads to bringing heaven on earth, no matter the cost. I listen to hear people's hearts and ask God what to say to them before I speak a word. I know I was meant to shine and will no longer dim my light or be ashamed of it. I am a daughter of a King. I can do anything through Him that gives me strength. I will change the world just by being me. And so will you! #whoareyou
Regardless of what others think about my love, I honour my love and my loss. #worthyoflove #brokenheart #divorce #heartbreak #family #lovequotes #healing #halingheart #bekind #genuine #highestgoodforall #relationshipquotes #realshit #realtalk #loveislife #emotionallybroken #emotional #loveyou #loveher #iloveher #ilovehim #itsover #timetomoveon #spiritual #mediation #prayers #hope #loveiseverwhere #breakup #breakupquotes
It may seem strange to hear me say, "I am so grateful for my back pain and for the struggles in my life." I mean who is TRULY grateful for chronic back pain and hardship? Me. Now don't get me wrong. I don't necessarily LOVE being in pain all the time but what I do love is the fact that, because I have been saved, having back pain is really not that bad compared to what I should have. Because if Jesus had not saved me I would most definitely be dead by now. I was not heading down a good path. I was not asking God for help. I was scared of Him and thought He was mean. But He is not mean. He only wants what is good for us and through the past seven years of chronic pain I have come to see that just because I am in pain, this does not mean God does not care. Do I believe He could take it all away in a second?! Yes I do. So if He is so good then why doesn't He? Well, let's pretend He took all my pain away right now. Let's imagine that I don't have to lay down for half the day anymore. Let's imagine that I am not hurting constantly. Let's pretend that I could just jump out of bed and move my body without pain. If this were the case then I would be able to do ANYTHING I wanted. I could draw all day and make hundreds of coloring books. I could paint faces at three birthday parties a day and make more money. You see this is the point. For me, having no pain and being able to do what I want when I want is not good for me. I like having to rely on God. I like having to trust Him for provision and getting to see how He provides. My back pain slows me down and this is a good thing for an energizer bunny like me. Now do I believe God gave me the pain? No. But I thank Him for helping me through it and helping me see Him even deeper because of it. Blessed are those who mourn. God comforts those in need. The most precious times in my life have been when I am completely broken. I pray to always have this attitude of gratitude and am grateful that the thankfulness that I have learned to express in the pain has shown me what is really important to focus on - loving people, listening, being still and knowing He is Lord and being grateful for what is.

You’ll have moments when you feel like a 🦁 and moments where you feel like a 🐭. Just remember that no matter how you feel, you still have a heartbeat and a soul worthy of ❤️, so learn to roar even when you feel small, because you are more than the feelings you may have. T.B.

The Holy Spirit dropped a verse in my heart yesterday while I was sitting in my morning meditation. As soon as I heard the verse my whole spirit leaped! So what was the verse?! Nehemiah 8:10. "The joy of the Lord is your strength." Now, I have heard this verse many times before. But I had not heard it in a while and this is why I know it was from God because it clearly came from somewhere outside of me. And when it fell on my heart I understood what this verse meant! Like REALLY understood it on a cellular level and I am forever changed because of it. If you have had something like this happen to you before then you know what I'm talking about. Because it happens TO you. You're not making it happen. I call it a God's Word download. "Jesus exemplified joy in His ministry. He was no glum ascetic; rather, His enemies accused Him of being too joyful!" I have been accused of the same thing! This is why I dimmed my light for so long. I was ashamed of my joy...but NO MORE! This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine. When Jesus was born, the angels announced “good tidings of great joy!" I get it now! It's all becoming so much more clear! The JOY of the Lord is our strength! Oh good Father you are so amazing and I thank you for your unending joy and I thank you that your joy lives in me!
Bees got me thinking... a loved one who's abusive may be sweet at times - just like a bee making honey. How can you protect yourself from abuse?

Ok so, you all know that porn is fake, right? All the orgasms, “money shots,” the end goal always being that the girl screams like a banshee while the guy does his best tarzan of the apes impersonation to seal the deal... It’s all porn focuses on. * To the porn world (illusion ), mutual orgasm is a given. To real people in real relationships in mainstream society (reality ), mutual orgasm is ever elusive, and rarely happens. But still, we shoot for it anyway, believing that if orgasm isn’t happening, we’ve failed. * I’m going to start out by saying something positive and very real about sex: There is no way you can fail at it. ❤💥. * What? What if she doesn’t orgasm? What if he doesn’t? Haven’t we failed? Well - that’s what we’ve been brainwashed to believe. Sex has been reduced to this act - that isn’t fun for all - because the priories, frankly, are all out of whack. * So - what should the priority be? Instead of focusing on orgasm, try something new. When it’s time to get your freak on, try this exercise... *** Read entire post, "Orgasm is Not the Goal" at https://www.patreon.com/posts/14838349 (link in bio! ) - ❤ #orgasmisnotthegoal #patreon #lifecoach #soulcoach #haikupoetry #lifecoachinghaiku #bloggervibes #womenempoweringwomen #millennialwomen #wevebeenduped #20something #canvalove #blogpost

I had an absolutely magical morning watching the sunrise while doing Yoga and Meditation with @doitforsavasana_ !! ✨ It was so increasingly beautiful and relaxing. The sounds of the 🌊waves crashing, and the birds chirping. The wind blowing on my skin. I was able to really just let go and breath in all of the good, and breathing out all the BS. Life is to short to hold on to grudges and get mad at the world. Make peace with yourself and learn to love the body you are in. I hope everyone has an wonderful day! ☀️ . . . #body #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bodylove #bodyconfidence #badassbody #loveyourself #loveyourselffirst #selflove #selfloveisthebestlove #selfloveclub #allbodies #nonairbrushedme #allbodiesaregoodbodies #goodenough #worthy #worthyoflove #alternativecurves #goldenconfidence #EffYourBeautyStandards #CelebrateMySize #Honormysize #mybopomyrules #BodyAcceptance #yoga #yogi #sunrise #meditation
