Warning; long ass post! Today 36 years ago I was diagnosed with type one diabetes. A lot has changed, a lot still needs to. The day I heard my body was ‘broken’ I couldn’t comprehend the effect this illness would have on my life. After all, I was only 3.5 years old. Almost my whole life the fight and struggle with this illness has taken a heavy toll on me. I’ve never let the illness define who I was or what I wanted to accomplish but it was always there. 24/7, I had to live with a ‘broken’ body.
Then 5 years ago I was pregnant with our first child. This made me see my ‘broken’ body in a completely different light. My body wasn’t just ‘broken’, my body could create.. And even after the traumatic events of have HELLP and pre-eclampsia at 33 weeks I still learned that my body wasn’t just ‘broken’ it could create and it could survive. Get better, get healthy again.
Now I’m at 31 weeks with baby 2. I’m exhausted with juggling health issues, past trauma from HELLP and just managing to stay on my feet and be a good partner and mom to our beautiful 4 year old (next to a kick ass drama teacher, director, friend, sister, daughter and what not)
But I’ve learned, and learning still, that this body is not just ‘broken’.. it is creating, it is healing... It is love.
So today, commemorating having Diabetes for 36 years I say; My beautiful body.. I love you... #beautiful#bodylove#diabetiquetype1#pregnantdiabetic#hellp#selflove#pregnancy
#thedailyme Day 1 of 30. For a moment I thought I made myself look angry, maybe it was just concentrsation... But i think it's OK. Just a quickie, wanted to see how bright this bottled ink was, then added a few other colours with some felt pens. Forced me to tidy my dresser, so I could sketch at the mirror... If nothing else, that makes it a win😅
Happy Father’s Day to my awesome self! Im proud to know that I stood up to all the things my kids would have expected of both parents! Some days I’m really exhausted, but I know that someday, in fact very soon... it will be all worth it! And that’s the knowledge I’ve held unto! That is what makes it easier😊
Vicenza here I come... "The wolf on the top of the hill is never as hungry
as the wolf climbing the hill
It's not easy going it alone. But if you KEEP GOING, stay true to yourself… it will be worth it in the end.
The hardest walk you can make is the walk you make alone, but that is the walk that makes you the strongest.
That is the walk that builds your character the most.
To all of you fighting battles alone. To all of you going against the grain, battling the naysayers:
Stay strong! Keep going!
STAY STRONG. KEEP GOING.
This walk is hard. But the hardest walks lead to the greatest destinations.
The toughest climbs always lead to the best views!
It WILL be worth it in the end.
And if you show what you are made of, the RIGHT people will show up in your life
You won't be a lone wolf forever.

السلام هو شعور داخلي وليس سلوك
خارجي، السلام هو أنك تكون متصالح مع نفسك ومتأكد انه كل شي في حياتك وكل شي حولك هو في مكانه الصحيح ومافي شي ناقص او غلط. وعشان نوصل للسلام لازم نشتغل على نفسنا ونجاهد كُل (الأفكار والمفاهيم) الي اتبرمجنا عليها لأن كل دي الأفكار اللي داخلنا احتمال بعضها يكون هو العائق والعامل المحفز للخوف اللي يُبعِد السلام عنّا.
💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕 Peace is an inner feeling and not an external behavior. Peace is that you are reconciled with yourself and certain that everything in your life and everything around you is in its proper place and nothing is wrong or missing. As we reach peace, we need to work on ourselves, our beliefs our hidden thoughts that’s controlling us. Grow throughout them& evolve.
Morning all. We hope the start of Sunday has been a good one 🤗. In the UK it is Father’s Day and this day and other days like Mothers Day, have very different meanings to all.
For some they are a celebration of those currently around and also those who lived with a good life and who are not here anymore ❤️😀 For others the meaning is a reminder of the loss and the pain of lives cut short or even relationships that may not have been what they had hoped 😢💔 Dealing with these thoughts, emotions, images and sensations can be hard to many as they stir up many mixed feelings 🤷♀️ 🤷♂️ How to deal with such feelings maybe a question that will be followed by many other questions rather than an answer. In life we try our upmost best to come with answers or solutions but these can often never be found. For example, why did this happen?, I wish I was or said...?, why couldn’t I have a good father?, why couldn’t I be a better son or daughter? Why did this happen to us? Please remember to be kind to yourselves whatever the circumstances 🙏🏼 and allow yourself some time to notice what maybe going on inside of you. These feelings maybe more amplified on these days but they exist within outside of these days. Seek help if you need to otherwise allow some time to make sense 😊. #sikhyourmind#sikh#fathersday#lossandgrief#pain#intergenerationaltrauma#dukh#mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#selflove#selfinquiry#mindfulness#meditation#health#wematter#mind
I sit today,
I simply sit—
and find myself reminded.
I witness today,
I merely witness—
and see myself embraced.
I am taken,
away through the great flow.
life pervades me—
sadness, joy, happiness, pain—
all simple labels.
this experience is everything.
life is everything,
or it’s nothing at all.
💟 TAKE TIME TO UNPLUG + TAKE TIME FOR YOU! 💟
For Cancers the building energy of the Full Moon in Sagitarrius is inviting us to SLOW DOWN and take some time to relax.
Which is exactly what I will be doing today!
This Full Moon also shines the spotlight on 'travel' in relation to your own personal journey.
We have a tendency to focus on where we want to be and how near or far we are from that destination. However, how often are you taking the time to PAUSE and reflect on just how far you've actually come? Sagittarius Full Moon offers you the opportunity to do exactly that.
Celebrate those milestones and all that you've overcome this far. 🎉 Its all supporting you in healing, becoming, aligning and receiving. 🎊
As with all Full Moons it's a time of letting go. Listening to your body, tuning into the wisdom of your Higher Self and noticing what's coming up for you, using this to guide in..... Releasing
Or, maybe a combination of the three.
Doing so with the intention of raising your vibe and aligning with what feels good for you.
To do that requires TRUTH!
What's your truth?
Who's telling the truth? 😮
It's all becoming crystal clear. Keep tuning in and listening to the guidance that comes from within.
This Full Moon brings the energy of resurrection and the reminder that you have everything you need. Maybe you just need to trust more to access it maybe you need support and tools to connect with it or maybe it's a combination of it all. Go with what's right for you.
Some of the tools in Heartbreak to Breakthrough might support you in releasing and aligning. Receive it for free via the link in the bio. 😘 With love 😘
Stop met oordelen over jezelf. Stop met je te vergelijken met anderen. We saboteren onszelf met onze gedachten. Oordeel, twijfel, standpunten. Elke keer als jij je bewust bent hiervan, stop jezelf dan. Time-out, stop het nu! Wat als elk standpunt niet meer dan een interessant standpunt is. Interessant, dat ik dat denk, interessant dat ik dat vind. Herhaal dit te zeggen tegen jezelf en je gedachten zullen minder worden. Wat als nu het moment is om de vriendelijkheid naar jezelf te zijn en je waarde te gaan erkennen! Wat is er dan mogelijk? #accesshettywinkels#accesshettytools#selflove#gratitude
Let's talk body positivity.
So we all know how hard it is growing up in a world full of beautiful people. I've spent most of my life wishing I could be prettier, smarter, stronger, skinnier. And I think most people can relate to that. So how do we get over it?
Obviously I can only explain how I am SLOWLY growing to love myself, all my flaws included.
Fake it. Fake it fake it fake it. The saying fake it till you make it is popular for a reason. Confidence is key, and pretending you're the hottest piece of shit in the room does a world of good.
Surround yourself by people who make you feel good. There is no point being friends with someone who doesn't support you, accept you, and helps make you better. We all worry about being alone, but sometimes being alone is better than being surrounded by shitty people. If you don't leave your friend's place feeling like your soul is full, think about why you're friends with them.
Growth is good, and sometimes it can be tough, but it's what we all need. As humans we are ever changing, and it's ok to realise you might need to change. Whether it's your diet (because we've all had those Macca's binges), your job, your location, or whatever! It can be scary considering changing up what you're doing, but if you're not happy, don't continue it.
And! Accept that we're all humans. We all make mistakes. We all struggle with confidence sometimes. It's ok to ask for help. It's ok to be scared. It's ok to sometimes want to curl up in a ball and not deal. But if you notice this is an ongoing issue, ask yourself why, ask yourself what you can change and ask for help. You're not alone. You're never alone. You're not the only one going through something, and someone will always have had the same experience.
Love you all. Love yourself.
Happy Father’s Day!
Keep up the good work.
Sending love to all the men working hard to raise the next generation, with special love to those who may find this day difficult maybe because of strained relationships or loss 💙

A very informative Coffee Morning at @jysk.uae in @itsburjuman with @rajul_25 about the nutritional needs for women across all phases in lifr and lead one to good health. A very interesting trick by Dr. Rajul Matkar about how much water does one need, she said, take your weight in kilograms then divide it by 3 the answer you get is the number of litres of water your body needs!!! Thanks Burjuman and JYSK for having us.
Jodi just wrote this, on a post on my FB page, about Teenager Blend.
Jodi was skeptical. 🤔
Jodi tried our flower essence blends anyway. 🌸
Jodi was amazed. 😮
Jodi will be a regular customer. 💥
Be like Jodi. 😎
There is nothing more sexy than having kickass energy and owning it! 😘⚡💣💥🔥🔥
What a shift we put in for @turfgames this weekend. I could not have asked of a better TEAM AMRAP 🌟👊🏼🎉
@adam_melrose @alex_mateus @charlene.doherty.fitness
This weekend I had the best of both worlds judging and competing...so much fun, blood, sweat and a few tears! All the hard hours on the Assault bike, burpees, burpees and more burpees really paid off.
See you next year @turfgames 🤘🏼#turfgames #teamwork#amrap

🌸Facial oils are totally worth the hype. Sure, it’s an extra step to add to your daily beauty regimen, but the benefits are well worth the effort. Swipe 🔙💁🏼♀️
🍀Our body produces oil naturally, but as we age that production decreases significantly. The skin needs oil to maintain a healthy balance, otherwise, it gets too dry which can cause breakouts, fine lines, and wrinkles. Using a facial oil helps keep moisture in the skin while protecting it from the environmental damage. Plus, they work with every skin type (yes, even if you have oily or blemish-prone skin).

🍍How pineapple is good for skin?💚
🍍Drink or eat pineapple juice/pineapple on regular basis as the fruit is one of the best solutions for your fair skin complexion and glowing face. Pineapple juice has the ability to enhance your beauty in totality and keep you acne, pimples and wrinkles free. Applying pineapple juice also ward off moles, warts, blemishes, black spots etc. :
🍍Pineapple juice is blended with array of nutrients that is beneficial for other purposes too including fair skin. Pineapple juice especially should be taken by those who have sensitive and inflamed skin because vitamin C gives them a healing touch. Vitamin A reduces the risk of inflammation and also acts like for anti-fungal and anti-bacterial.

Guten Morgäääään ☀️🥳 Wünsche einen entspannten Sonntag!
Gestern sind wir spät Abends in #Verden angekommen und heute wird Geburtstag gefeiert. 🥳🎉Anschließend geht es dann wieder zurück nach #Osnabrück , da ich morgen in der Früh MLD habe und meine Beine für neue #kompressionsstrumpfhosen ausgemessen werden. Am Dienstag sind die acht Wochen nach der #liposuktionbeilipödem endlich rum und die Hose muss keine 24h mehr getragen werden. 🥳😍Bei dem heißen und schwülen Wetter macht mich die Kompression verrückt und dabei bekomme ich in den nächsten Tagen neue Armstrümpfe mit Händen. 😒Mumie Julia stets zu Diensten 🧖🏼♀️Aber hey, so kann ich nur noch im Gesicht Sonnenbrand bekommen.😂💁🏼♀️ Wie geht ihr im Sommer mit eurer Kompression um? Schmeißt ihr sie in die Ecke oder tragt sie tapfer durch❓

🗣 Know the distinction. Sometimes it’s not about you. Pay close attention to how people treat themselves. If they aren’t taking care of themselves, how can they take care of you? If they don’t love themselves, that doesn’t mean you don’t love yourself. You’ve worked and invested way too much time to believe where someone else is at equals you having to be there too or to be in the belief that their lack of self love equals a lack of your self love. Sometimes we look past this and lose ourselves in the process of somebody else who’s still searching to find themselves, to love themselves. Know the distinction. You love you, no matter what. Someone’s got to hear this tonight. Tag em all! 🗣❤️
