Sonder (noun): "the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When it relates to anxiety, depression and self-preoccupation in general, recognizing the sonder may help us put things and ourselves into perspective; being embarrassed or ashamed of a thing that we did, do or are - however valid and true - is like a grain of sand in the grand sea of humanity.
Instead of hyper-focusing on our own peculiarities, pains and faux pas, can we zoom out and see how we are a piece of the whole? How we are not alone in our complexity? Can we recognize that others are far too busy worrying about their own lives to harp on the nuances of ours? As we make our way through crowds in the street, at the store or on our road through life, may we let the sonder set in...

On awkward facial expressions👹:
Recently, i’ve been at several occasions where a photographer is present to capture candid moments. i’ve learned a lot about what i tend to look like in these spaces. Here are a couple of the many intense and expressive shapes my face takes naturally while i’m speaking to people... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is at The Other Art Fair where i was creating custom visual affirmations for assorted folks- it was clearly very fun and dreamy to me as i did the work of my heart & soul’s passion.🤓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀
But these fervent expressions aren’t even reflected by those i’m talking to nor are they necessarily appropriate to the topics discussed... hence, AWKWARD. This expressiveness mostly comes out of me when i’m comfortable; so, comfort only brings out my inherent peculiarity.🤦🏽‍♂️😬🤷🏽‍♂️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All this to say, The Moon Times digest on "leaning into your awkward" comes out in a few hours, featuring an array of fascinating perspectives and science on the theme of awkwardness. Last chance to subscribe at the biolink + count down until your inbox receives it ❤️👽👍🏽

 #reminders through breath focus in essence, it's possible for Wim Hof to tolerate freezing temperatures for record time, for Shaolin monks to transform their bodies into armor against powerful blows or sharp objects, for birthing people* to push babies through their portals with or without the help of drugs. Breath... coming back to our breath allows us as humans to withstand life, pain and the harshest of elements. 
Personally, bringing my awareness to my breath frequently throughout the day helps me feel like things are actually fine in those moments, it reminds me that I'm alive, here, and capable of infinite possibilities. I may not be immersed in negative temperatures, with a knife to my neck or in labor, but in all the small and stressful times of living a life, breath gets me out of the rat race that is my mind and environment sometimes, and into what's clearly true and life-giving: I CAN BREATHE. It can take as little as a few deep breathes with an elongated exhale to reset, even a little. Awareness of my breath is respite, a haven, a secure space. and it's accessible anytime.

it's not naturally a habit of our psyches to stop and recognize all that we can be grateful for, to make and take some time to identify all that we've worked hard for and all that's actually blooming. This is a reminder to make it a habit, to slow down and see the fruit, to taste it and savor it, and be grateful for the prasad #blessedofferings #reminders #iseeyou #blooming

This flower full moon inspires a Moon Times digest dedicated to the awkward wallflowers in us all (some in more peculiar bloom than others 🙃)... The theme is an invitation that’s opened up a lot of space in me personally at times: “lean into your awkward.”
The publication will be a study in the science of awkward (and why it’s rather awesome), why it’s also so uncomfortable and cringeworthy, how we can practice radical acceptance by leaning in and pulling an Issa by just owning the fuck out of our awkwardness 👹.
Coming out in a couple days. Featuring the wisdom and charm of a dear friend, Natalia @myideaofyou. If you're not already subscribed, tap the biolink to get on the list.

Illegalizing abortion, especially despite rape and incest, doesn't prevent abortions, it makes *safe* abortions inaccessible; it increases the risk of bringing more unwanted children into the world whose parents are not mentally, physically or emotionally ready and capable to raise a new little human!!!
i do believe that we have to be super careful with how we use abortions; we have to prioritize safe sex rather than treat the ability to abort like a plan B or even C. This is so important 👁 However, a bunch of white men making it illegal for a womxn to choose what she will do with her body and life is NOT the way. 🖕🏽Fuck this patriarchy🖕🏽i support reproductive freedom, autonomy, safety and justice for developed and living humans (versus prioritizing unborn children who are not wanted by the potential parent to begin with)! A womxn's body belongs to her and mother nature only.
If you'd like to support these values, get some art for a purpose; this month, all profits from these three prints will go to Chicago Abortion Fund (CAF). @chicagoabortionfund affirms a person's right to choose to parent or not by providing financial aid to those needing help to pay for an abortion; because this choice should not be determined by age, race, marital status or economic status. CAF advocates at state & federal levels and is a resource for the Midwest and the entire country, funding more callers from out-of-state as other states pass more restrictive anti-choice laws.
You can also visit @chicagoabortionfund directly to support, donate or volunteer. Go to the biolink for these prints affirming that my body belongs to me and Mother Nature only, we’re in this together, and my erotic encourages excellence.

When a primary caregiver like a precious mother (or father) to a young child is unavailable or consistently unresponsive- for any valid reasons like mental illness, addiction, transition like immigration, grief, poverty & chronic suffering- the child feels it profoundly. The child feels the pain of their closest and most beloved heroine. In making sense of it, the child may internalize & overly-identify with the pain consciously and subconsciously. The child may take on the burden of pain as if it will relieve mama. If the mother's pain persists, the child may come to believe they are the cause of mama's pain, they may even come to believe that they are wrong & not worthy of love, that their needs will not & cannot be met. 
This is so vulnerable...because this child has been in my adult body carrying the burden of these deep-rooted beliefs. These beliefs regarding worthiness of love have expanded today beyond mother, to everyone including potential friends & loves. i had grown to believe deeply and subconsciously that her pain was about me & because of me, from a time when i was too little to understand that it had nothing to do with me. These beliefs have created feelings of gaping loneliness within me. And i'm absolutely tired of reaching out to the unreachable, or being unreachable myself because those old beliefs lead me to think & act like that's all i can have & be. 
The Sage in me knows that there's profound possibility for healing here... for shedding these burdensome beliefs & welcoming in the abundance of love that i & we are inherently worthy of. There's possibility for healing in acknowledging what we needed when we were completely dependent, but might not have received, to grieve... & eventually, to forgive. To bring that abundant love to the little ones in us & even their beloved yet wounded heroines is a radical & transformative practice. There's possibility to penetrate generations past and future with this healing & this love.
To our little one in our adult body, i say: dear one, i'm so sorry you've carried this burden for so long. Her pain was not about you & is not about you still. You are so incredibly lovable for exactly who you are.

 #emoart 🙃 whose a crybaby? 🙋🏽‍♂️ lol but for real though, crying is straight up MEDICINE; that is, when we’re not invalidating this naturally-cleansing process with judgments of us crying, compulsive problem-fixing before allowing ourselves to feel fully, or wiping our tears away shamefully with tissues or sleeves. Crying/allowing the tears to leave our eyes and fall down our cheeks in streams of warm saltiness is SO cathartic. 
Research shows that tears not only lubricate our eyes and remove irritants, but they also extract stress hormones from our bodies and contain antibodies that protect us. Typically after crying, our breathing and heart rate decrease, calming us biologically and emotionally.
Do nottttt hold in your tears 😭🌊 That’s hoarding the stress hormones in your system that tears form to remove. And never tell someone else to keep their tears inside. Let it out, blow it out and give space to others to do the same without judgment. 
Reject these archaic, fucked up and harmful patriarchal notions that crying is weakness. CRYING is emotional INTELLIGENCE, a sensitive SUPERPOWER, a natural CLEANSING. Let the tears fall and allow your wise body to do what it does to release. 
I cry a lot, all the time 💦👁🌊 from most good movies, sad situations, deeply poignant situations, stress. I’m sooo grateful to have a partner, therapist and friends who make space for tears without freaking out, judging or taking it personally. And wow is it powerful and clearing!!! ✨May we all have that and be that! 😭💦💕

Waking up at 3am with a splitting headache and an inability to go back to sleep gifted this affirmation... relevant reminders to release the frustration, agitation and desperation of "why the fuck do i feel this way?!" and instead, bring a hand of kindness first, like, "you're in pain right now... i'm here for you, boo."
