Do you see yourself?
Do you see a false version of you?
Do you see yourself as incomplete?
Do you see your flaws? •
Do you know feelings lie?
Do you know you are real?
Do you know you are complete?
Do you know flaws add up to unique value?
How we see ourselves matters. ****************************** I AM ME!
I AM TRUE!
I AM COMPLETE!
I AM PERFECTLY MADE!
This! This is one of my favorite things. It’s a doodle of my inner critic. No, my Inner Critic is not my favorite thing. My favorite thing is that I’ve learned to poke fun at it, and nudge it back. I’ve learned that it’s an ally, an extremely dysfunctional ally at that, but on some level it thinks it’s there to help. So, I turn the tables on it and ask: in what way do you possibly think that you’re being helpful? ⠀
I love exploring this one with students and clients, because let’s face it: we are all harder on ourselves than we would EVER be on anyone else. And, that critical voice that’s inside of us…it isn’t our True Authentic Self. It’s a Something Else. ⠀
It feels good to approach the topic lightly, and with curiosity…although, typically, when I approach this with others, everyone braces for the worst. This is the beauty of the doodle: seriously, how intimidating is your mean Inner Critic when reduced to a common DOODLE?? This levels the playing field, and then we use #arttherapy techniques to process the artwork, typically in a special form of journaling. We get to say, hey Inner Critic Doodle, WTH??⠀
And, you know what?? When called out, it turns out to not be so awful-dark-evil-scary-bad.⠀
My inner critic is a slippery, slimy, one-eyed ogre who is always poised to splat me. When I feel vulnerable it looms large, and close. I’ve learned that it’s trying to protect me. Knowing this, I can put some boundaries on it…and I can redirect its strengths towards something that works more positively on my behalf. I know this sounds pretty outlandish…but it’s true. Your Inner Critic, on some level, wants to help you. ⠀
I’ve learned that there are several choices: one, to work with it and be disciplined about keeping it in its place. If that sounds like a drag…it sort of is. But, the other option is to let it run around unchecked. Which means that it rules. And what do you prefer, and Inner Critic that rules you….or is reduced to helpful, by something as simple as a common #doodle? ⠀

We live in a world where people consume content through social media and this is curated social media. Whether people like to admit it or not, we are cornered into an echo chamber and the byproduct of that is tribalism. It doesn't have to be this way, we can still carry on the enlightenment values of honest, free conversation if we choose.

I’ve been trying to write this post all day, but sometimes it’s really hard to come up with the right words to describe someone as badass and as I inspiring as this lady. Laura radiates creativity to her core. She is always honesty and her integrity is next level. I’m constantly learning from her. Her attention to detail is impeccable. You’ll never know a more loyal friend, and her engagement and willingness to truly to get to know people is incredible. I look up to this incredible soul, and I hope one day I can be just as cool. Laura, here’s to another trip around the sun + to big life changes once that sweet babe comes. I can’t wait to see where this year takes you! Love ya girl, happy birthday! #lauraburkhartcreative#happybirthday
(Published in realm magazine. March 2017) Some of you are disappointed to see me without the rings nowadays, but I feel myself evolving past them. Accept me now or don’t . I’ve never fully been accepted by the world with or without my rings. Either way, it’s the same. Self love is what matters most. #magazine #shoot#altmodel #positivevibes#unique#fashion#happy#love#loveyourself#model #sydneyvsmith#necklace #fierce#selflove #selfcare#goth #inspired#beautiful#elegant #statement#smokeyeye#tribal #dailyquotes#goth#gothfashion#life#bodymodification

It is really this simple. I am noticing a trend in my conversations and my inbox and that trend is people trying to convince someone that they are worthy of being loved. Worthy of being chosen. Worthy of being seen. 😥This is not how this works.This is not how any of this works. 🤦🏽♀️ I think we all have done it once or twice in our life but at some point we have to evolve to the point, love ourselves enough to know WE are enough and for the right person, we are EVERYTHING. So why expend a ton of energy and go through with exercising the demeaning fruitless task of convincing someone to love you when you can just love yourself, be happily single and free your space to be with someone who can't wait to love you in new ways daily. Why bother with people who do not want you? I get it.. it is like a psychological thing. We often pine after those who we feel rejected by. Knowing is half the battle though, Love. There is an entirely different world waiting in the OPPOSITE direction of begging someone to love you. Choose life. Choose true love. - #IamColeMichele#SinOfBeingSingle PS - So our brains after we go through stuff literally form new pathways. Our minds can become hard wired to think that one experience is THE experience. It creates statements like "All men.." "All women.." "Relationships suck". "Why does this always happen to me.." This is like science..lol..not fluff. If you find yourself in the same patterns relationship wise you most likely need to "Break(ing) The Habit of Being Yourself". That is a book by Dr Joe Dispenza. Check it out. It may be helpful in helping break free of toxic cycles. Also someone not returning affection to you does not make them a jack... It could mean you just aren't it. Praise God for the revelation, clear them out of the way to make room for your good. Keep it moving #Bucko 😂😂😂 (sorry binged watch @hahadavis..couldn't resist.)
