Just do you. Focus on YOU, don’t let others needs, problems, expectations take you away from what you want and need.
Constantly giving your resources to others is not being a martyr, it’s self sabotage.
Perhaps you’ve been doing it so long you don’t know what you need or want.
That’s okay too, we can get you there.
Give to others only after you give to yourself, if you don’t I promise one day you will wake up depleted, resentful, and wondering where your life went.
Are you living the life you want? ❌⭕️ #selfworthbuildsresilience#lovefearlesslylivefully#worthywidow
Goodbye my lover. Goodbye my friend. It’s time for me to let you go 😢💕. Why can love be yet so sweet yet so bitter. What a beautiful experience we have given each other. In such a short time. A journey to places we were able to discover our deepest fears because we choose to be vulnerable. Places where only you could have guided me to. Doors only you could have shown me, for me to open up, and encourage me to take a look inside. And so much more. I don’t know where to start. Yet, we have said it all. Thanked each other a million. Helped each other grow. Dried each other’s tears. What a great person you are ✨🙏🏽. Joanna. #breakup#love#thankyou#spiritual#growth#lover#friend#life#goodbye
Self-employment is never all sunshine, rainbows and butterflies. It is hard f-king work and can do a doozy on your mental health.
2019 is the year I want to refocus on personal growth instead of doggedly pursuing professional achievements. It gives me some control back, makes life more interesting and frankly, gets my mind focusing on other things than work and stressing about work!
An emergency fund for my business is one way I try and battle the anxiety, but it does get low at times and then the fear and panic kicks back up.
One of the best ways to counteract the panic is to talk about it. I turn to Peach and fellow self-employed friends in my time of angst!
What’s one personal growth and one professional growth goal you have for 2019?
OK so this is actually really hard for me to post but let’s do it.
this is me at 140lbs.
I was so insecure and hated the skin that I was in. I struggled with my weight all through high school and into my early 20s and after having my last baby I decided to change that. I currently weigh 132. I live a healthier lifestyle and replaced my fat with muscle. Never in my life did I ever think that I would be the girl that wore crop tops or be happy with myself and I can honestly tell you that I’ve never been happier with my body and this is the reason why I “flaunt” it. Not because I want anyone to look at me as a sex symbol but more as an inspiration because I was that girl. The one that would look at the fit women and wish I had a “body like that”. While I was in the locker room today a woman asked me if I was a coach and I told her no and she said “wow really!?! With a body like that i thought you’d be a trainer, you look amazing”. Every time someone finds out that I’m a mama of four they always seem so shocked. I guess you can say I got used to the compliments but looking back on this photo it makes me feel like I want to crawl back into a ball. Then I scroll through my camera roll and see how far ive come and I’m like you know what screw that, I need to share this because I know somewhere out there someone is thinking the same thing I thought just a few years ago and if I can do it so can you. It’s not going to be easy but you CAN and WILL get through it. You’ve got this!!!

Life can make dreams seem silly & unreasonable. Comfort Killers beg to differ.
Yesterday was a heavy day for me and I the wasn’t my best version of myself. Actually, I was the worst version of me. I was tired from a busy two week, scared, and still filled with others emotions from the Journey To The Soul challenge last week. Being an empath, I forgot to release myself from the heavy burdens that my loves released themselves from.
But I thought I could handle it all, without taking time off to recharge.
The end result of not taking care of myself and not clearing my energy: yelling at my partner and telling him not to talk to me, then going into the bed room and shutting the door behind me. I most Certainly overreacted - those are things that I never do. I felt like it wasn’t me who said that. I never want my partner not to talk to me.
This morning I apologized & tonight I practiced. I practiced compassion, forgiveness, and love towards Myself—because what we say and do is a reflection of what’s going on inside of Us mentally. It usually has nothing to do with others. We chose how we act and how we respond to everything and everyone in our life and when we don’t check in with ourself during the hard days.. it’s not just us who will be hurting at the end of the day.
During my practice I cried 2 times. Once when I told myself to breathe deeper, and when listened to my voice telling me to breathe.. it was like I was coming up to the surface from drowning. It felt so real, I could see myself coming up from the depths and gasping for air when I reached the surface. It was the most beautiful and realest feeling that I’ve ever felt in my practice.
The second time was when I rolled over after savasana, I held my face sweetly in both of my palms. Like a mother would when her child.
You see, we’re all still learning. Growing & trying to figure it out.. and that’s what I love about Yoga. Yoga instant about the practice of building strength and flexibility, it’s the practice of working on yourself to become a better human for yourself, and for everyone else in your life❤️
