~Change is good~
Change can be very difficult. Sometimes we wonder if we’ve made the right decision, what’s the point and where’s the light at the end of the tunnel. But just like the sun sets to welcome a new day, new choices and opportunities so does change. -
So don’t be afraid of change. Change happens when you step out of your comfort zone. It’s uncomfortable but the rewards are worth it. No matter the outcome it brings growth. All things are difficult before they become easy.
Hopper's Letter to Eleven.
It was an emotional ending to @netflixstrangerthings Season 3
This letter was beautiful, heartfelt and if you have a teenager, you will understand all too well.
Even if you dont, many of you will relate to these words, for at some point in your life, you have experienced struggle. •
The struggle to feel love again. To accept that things will change no matter how good or bad life is & to not fight it but allow it and be transformed by it. •
When someone spots your greatness, believe them.
I say this all the time. ALL THE TIME!
Meaning that when someone sees the greatness within you, listen to that specific recognition, receive it and honor it.
People that dont receive their greatness reflect a doubt of whether they are actually great and doubt oozes into every aspect of your life.
At times it was hard for me to receive hearing from a woman. So doubt creeped into my relationships and destroyed them. Not their fault...mine. the double was/is damaging. It is catastrophic. It is self destructive.
I was doing it to myself and unfortunately to women I was in relationships with...subconsciously sabotaging relationships through doubt.
For some reason my experience in relationships did not allow me the ability at times to acknowledge my greatness.
And then, something clicks, moves, shifts as you do the inner work. The real work. The self work. The YOU work. Then when you get clear on your intentions and your desires...what you want and need. Who you want to be when you grow up. Who you want to be for yourself and for someone else...it allows you to call that person in.
Having Katie call me forward and spot my greatness on a daily basis has been one of the GREATEST GIFTS OF MY LIFE!
She allows me to see ME in ways I would never be able to see myself.
She is a powerful mirror for me, in every way.
She is considerate, kind and patient.
She is sexy AF.
Most importantly, my relationship with her is a reflection and result of the work I've done on myself which means I am constantly finding ways to go deeper into what I need, who I want to become and how that manifests in the context of a relationship.
Life in love is not a cake walk.
We have ups and downs.
I mean...we even broke up.
But there was something worth RECLAIMING...so we reclaimed it.
I honor her and I love the shit out of her.
I honor me and love the shit out of me.
When someone spots your greatness believe them.
I now spot my own greatness
And someone else does too.
Love you babe. ❤

With reflection, contemplation and acceptance of change, we can reduce a large amount of our self-created suffering.
I try not to abide by so many labels to describe who I am, or what I do. I lost my complete and utter identity in 2009. My 'then' life was stripped away from me and I didn't know who I was, my purpose and did go through an identity crisis. But the thing is, holding onto that, who I used to be and what I could do in no way serves me...ever. I am who I was then. It was the events of drastic change that has led me to where I am now. And I wouldn't give up all that suffering for this.
What are you thinking about and focusing on this week? Are you in a rut? Are you on a ‘winning streak’?How we think and feel about our current situation and future leads to what actually happens in our world. Where are you at?
The date has been set. The theatre has been booked. The after-party venue has been locked down. It’s official.
On the 5th of October, the premiere of @planetvegandoc is coming to Berlin and tickets are now on sale.
See you there 🌱

**UNFLATTERING SELFIE ALERT** Let's talk about stress - late sleep in, dark under eyes, pimples in mouth region from poor food choices, messy hair from getting up and going back to bed and to top it off I'm suffering with vertigo again.
This is all due to stress. I am twenty two years old with the world at my feet and I am so stressed out on a regular basis that I make myself feel run down and unwell, and in turn cannot enjoy life.
I am currently sitting in bed with some music in my ears, comfy track pants and dressing gown on, complete shake in hand, psyching myself up for work this afternoon and the room is spinning.
My stress levels are high because of working a job I only attend 16 hours a fortnight. Do you know how crazy that is! I try to balance a day job, a business, a candle hobby business, my mental and physical health, plus everything else that happens in life and there's one simple thing I can do to eliminate a huge bulk of stress and I'm still so scared to do it. Leave my safety net. My job. The thing I started my business so I could leave it. How many people get stuck in this mindset and feel as though they can't take a step forward because they'll lose balance? I know I'm there ✋comfort zones feel safe but it doesn't mean they're good for you and I can tell you now that my comfort zone is getting toxic. Anyone else feel this way? ✋If you do, I'd love to hear from you and what your one thing is that you could do to help relieve stress but are too scared to step forward and do.
First, this is not my meme. I found it while scrolling and couldn't help but screen shot it.
My first thought was of course - Valor Morgulis!
We are caught in a vicious cycle of trying to fit into the social norms of past centuries. Social norms should evolve as we evolve. Unfortunately, with the technology boom of the last twenty years, we are struggling to change quickly and/or hide our prejudices effectively. My parents' generation is so far removed from mine. My mother gave birth to me at 29. I'm currently 32 and couldn't fathom bringing a child into this uncertain world.
Before I venture too far off topic, tomorrow I return to work. Not really rested or relaxed. That may be my fault for not wanting to pay for my entire vacation with credit cards, but I did not think adding to my debt was prudent given the biased workplace that I devote 10 hours a day, 5 days a week to(during slow season). Five years later, my eyes are finally open and I feel used, mis-lead and underpaid by male superiors once again. I've neglected so many important aspects of my life because I assumed hard work would pay off in the end and if they just knew what I was capable of doing I would be paid properly.
We as women can endure a lot, but we all have our limits. I've decided to start this insta to chronicle my journey to a better me.
One that takes care of herself, friends, family, & community
One that invests in her own goals and intelligence
One that leaves this planet better than she found it.
I’m sorry I have no idea who this was made by, if anyone does, please let me know. — my heart started racing so fast, it was about 160 beats per minute and I felt like I couldn’t catch a breath. They put a bunch of different masks on me that made me feel like I couldn’t breathe even more and I had a headache that was the size of an.. ocean (?lol) that wouldn’t leave no matter what I took. They brought me down to ICU (intensive care unit). I’ve been here now for a couple of days, and I’ve healed so much, I don’t even need the small oxygen that was in my nose that I was needing to use every day upstairs in the normal ward. The part of the hospital I was staying in this time is old. There’s barely any air conditioning, and as any of you know that live in Ontario or anywhere where it’s around 30 degrees Celsius and above, you know it’s been hit and humid as heck. It’s been heard to breathe in the rooms. Not to mention the old parts of the hospital hold four people to a room, where your separated by dirty curtains and can feel and hear everything everyone else is going through. Including the fact that most are older than 79 and have to be changed by someone else and can’t move. The smell is awful.. wretched, on top of not being able to breathe fully. On top of this I was out into two different rooms with people that were not all mentally there, crying for help every night, saying they were going to kill themselves, and just crying out in pain or making noises all night with their hospital beds or talking to themselves or anything else you can imagine.. as a lot of you know, I’m extremely empathic, which means I can feel and see and hear things beyond what most people can on an average day (blessing and curse), but mainly I can feel things.. and I’m just learning to differentiate what is my own emotions and what are others. It is very confusing to figure out. Especially in somewhere with as low of a vibration as a hospital (this section in particular).. anyways. I’m not trying to make anyone feel bad for me. I’m just trying to send a message. Maybe of hope. And it relates to this photo.. in this room where I am alone; it is calm and peaceful.(Comments continued below)
