Do you believe in the power of vulnerability
There has been skepticism lately about why I have started to “air my dirty laundry” or “show my weakness” on social media. Let me explain why.... For years, I privately wallowed in misery and honestly believed that my life was defined by both my past, and my current circumstances. I believed that my life would eternally be governed by habits that I couldn’t seem to control, and I felt myself slipping into a self-destructive mindset that was swallowing my happiness like a black hole. I put on a good show for the world around me, but on the inside, I felt nothing but shame and guilt and sadness.
Meanwhile, an acquaintance (now a cherished friend) spent years telling a similar story on social media, while I sat back and followed silently. I read her posts, I listened to her stories, and I watched her push through her struggles and transform into a strong and empowered version of herself. Through her story, I felt a strong connection, and I started to admire, respect, and really trust her.
This friend’s story became MY survival guide. As I watched her regain control of her life, it showed me that there was hope and light even in the darkest of places. I saw that she found a way to scramble out of the dark, and I desperately wanted to do it, too. Eventually, I took a leap of faith and since then, I’ve never looked back.
Though there is always some fear in being so vulnerable, there is so much power there, too. I challenge you to shut down your fear, embrace your vulnerability, share your story, and let it be someone else’s survival guide.💡❤️ 🥰

Hey all, I wanted to share what i eat for my weight management. There is no secret:
"it's simple, thats what makes it so difficult." (Mr. Bower, ECC Music Theory God)
Lots of farm fresh veggies from @cordilleragreenshi - They are super good at growing stuff!!!! Not only are they great farmers, but they are kind hearted special people -
Also pictured is my tamuras run. Poke, tortilla chips, cheese, sour cream, and BEANS!!! Yes beans, high in protein/fiber :)
(Good thing I sleep alone,lol)
Oh and I'm trying local maili girls poke salads today!!!! Veggies with seasoning on them.
So as @jason_mraz
Would say, "Support your local farmers and farmers markets!"
Lastly, Mahalo to @makekefarmers for keeping the show running - i appreciate all ur hard work guys.
Weight stats - 290 a year ago when stressed out and serving quesadillas on the beach.
Today I'm 266, back in ocean and depression is in check for my health transformation.
IT TAKES EFFORT, YOU CAN DO IT!!!!! Malama Pono and God Bless.

How can the universe bring you anything good if you are speaking out negative affirmation! The law of attraction is real, reprogram your thinking, your actions and most importantly what your tongue births, as words are power!✨🔑💡
Moments of peace...
I've learned to settle for moments of happiness. I no longer push myself to be happy, cure my depression or get it all right all the time.
To some, this could sound like giving up. It could sound like I am accepting that my life will be filled with tears and sadness.
For my whole life I have struggled with depression, anxiety and this isolating feeling of standing outside the crowd, alone.
Ya know what, I am standing on the outside. I will never think like most people I meet, never fit into what society wants me to be. I will never wake up one day and be happy for all days after that. I will always carry this burden.
But do not fret! I am at peace with this. I no longer hold myself to unattainable realities. I can not cure what ails me. But I can learn to live and even thrive with it. I can grow stronger after each down. I can celebrate every up and practice gratitude for things others take for granted. I can use my struggles to inspire others and make sure they never forget they are not alone. I can celebrate me, all the good and bad.
And, I can find more joy in simple, small moments than some can't find in a lifetime.
You are not broken, you are beautifully different, unique and magical!✨✨

4th and worst half-marathon so far. 1st lap: I thought, why did I chose this fucking hilly and curvy course through the old town of Limburg 2nd lap: I thought, I was going to die. 3rd lap: I wanted to quit and go to my car. 4th lap: I panicked because I didn’t want to be a loser and give up. 5th lap: I reminded myself that I did it for fun. 6th lap: I enjoyed the race and cheered someone else up.
So now I am crying tears of disappointment and pride. I wanted to finish stronger and faster but in fact I am happy that I finished at all. #mission125 #nevergiveup #jerandjar #getupshowupnevergiveup #fightdepression #happyrunning #ihaterunning #whateverittakes
Hi everyone :) I take a break in between coz I love to cherish my own space for my mental peace and i would suggest my dear friends to do the same .
you know these time off lets us to get closer to ourself to know ourself deeper...... we get to realize.... what's important and what's not...... the things which make us strong..... is only known..... when we visit ourselves often.... in solitude.... you know ....the biggest fear one lives in...... "what will happen if "........ !!! but what's the point to think about what will happen if..... just take a step..... let go what actually had happened....... dont let it overrule your future.....your bad days.... were a passing lesson for your brighter days to come..... do not fear what haunts you of your past...... as everyone goes through something or the other..... the people who understand this..... will never judge you.... so take everything in an optimistic way...... do not explain who you were earlier...... because..... you aren't the same now..... the more matured YOU..... only came..... coz..... what you went through...... You shall never let yourself dictated by the people whom you left.....the situations you faced..... do not explain.... do not fear....... face your fears while you introspect ......and..... these fears will become your greatest strength...... of that be sure.... Nothing can make you stop..... its only you... who could..... so love yourself for everything you are..... ~ Ms. Silly

THE 100 OLLIES PROJECT
FOLKETS SKATEPARK MINI RAMP.
This is a BIG step forward for me, this is the highest ramp, so far, that Ive done a rock n roll in.
I thought I never would get over the fear. This is PROGRESS. So proud of myself. 😃💪 I am going to do an ollie at a 100 different places.
Im 38 years old and I have been battling depression. The last day of summer 2017, I did something I always wanted to do, I took my friends old 90s board to the local skatepark. It was one of the best things I have ever done. I fell in love with skateboarding at once. Skateboarding and the skateboard community is helping me so mutch in my battle with my own mind.
This will be my way of thanking skateboarding and the skateboard community, and my way of bringing awerness about depression and mental illness.
The goal is to do the last ollie at VENICE BEACH SKATEPARK in California, US.
My big dream has always been to visit California and Los Angeles.
Im from Sweden btw. 😉
Pleas follow me and my project.

Boost the Immune System:
Reishi mushroom can enhance immune function through its effects on white blood cells, which help fight infection and cancer. This may occur primarily in those who are ill, as mixed results have been seen in those who are healthy.
تقویت سیستم ایمنی:
قارچ گانودرما که حاوی بتاگلوکان پلی ساکاریدهاست، یک آداپتوژن محسوب میشود که میتواند سیستم ایمنی بدن را تنظیم و تعدیل کرده و برای احیای سلامت کلی سودمند است. این قارچ معمولا محلول تنظیم کننده سیستم ایمنی نامیده می شود و این یعنی میتواند واکنش سیستم ایمنی را تنظیم کند.
It includes increasing the activity of the body’s white blood cells, which help fight cancer, and improving quality of life in cancer patients
پیشگیری از سرطان:
مصرف قارچ گانودرما به تنهایی نمی تواند بر رشد سلول های سرطانی تأثیرگذار باشد. با مصرف این قارچ درصد لنفوسیت ها افزایش یافته و در نتیجه سیستم ایمنی بدن تقویت می شود، همچنین با مصرف این قارچ تعداد سلول های کشنده که مسئول دفاع از بدن در برابر عوامل بیگانه هستند افزایش می یابند.
Could Fight Fatigue and Depression:
It has the extraordinary ability to support stress by nourishing and calming the central nervous system and promoting relaxation
مبارزه با خستگی و افسردگی:
این قارچ توانایی فوق العاده ای برای بهبود استرس با تغذیه کردن و آرام کردن سیستم عصبی مرکزی و ترویج آرامش دارد.

I couldn’t believe the amount of brain fog I was getting was even affecting my memory. It was odd and frustrating. One minute you’d be talking and meaning to say one thing and then something else comes out or you are forever in a pause until what you was trying to say finally comes back to mind. To other people you may start to look uneducated because they don’t know what’s causeing your long pauses within sentences. Don’t be afraid to explain to your family and friends that you often deal with brain fog that has worsened with you illness. Which does affect your memory. This will help them be more patient with you while having conversations with them. 💙 @mgisapartofme
5 Things I Love About:
1️⃣ I have many friendly neighbors who make the effort to know my name and be generally neighborly without being busybodies about it.
2️⃣ Even though our neighborhood doesn’t have a required home owner’s association (or the fees that go along with it), people take good care of their homes and yards. There are lots of lovely gardens for us to enjoy when we go on a walk.
3️⃣ Our neighborhood bordered the largest park in our town with a swim beach, duck pond, and sculpture garden.
4️⃣ There’s an amphitheater in the park near our house where we can go to free community concerts in the summer.
5️⃣ Our town puts on an awesome fireworks show each year for 4th of July, and the launch point is at the beach 2 blocks from our house. We can easily watch the show from our own backyard or walk a short way to get a front row seat.
This is your reminder of the day. Take a minute to stop and breathe. Find some time in your day to unwind and relax. Truly it can change yoir outlook and overall mood. Any little bit of time you have, give it back to yourself. You deserve it ❤️❤️

Went Peterborough Heritage festival today on my own which is a HUGE thing. Bagged me some goodies for when we get the house. A goddess and green man for good luck, a little fairy door and a Viking rune necklace that says warrior. Also saw the lovely Andy and Chris which always brightens my day 😍

27 minutes. That’s all it took. I needed 27 minutes to myself today to hang out with my accountability zoom crew 📸 and my MMA inspired workout. I started panicked, overwhelmed and frustrated. I ended feeling strong, centered and focused. 👌🏻
It doesn’t take hours, a commute, or a gym membership. It doesn’t require a personal trainer and dieting. 🙅🏼♀️ It requires a positive mindset, a belief in yourself, and an investment in your health - and I don’t just mean with money. 💰 It takes a small investment of making time ⏰ for yourself and putting your health 1st. 🥇
You can’t pour from an empty cup. 🥛 You can’t help others until you help yourself first. My next bootcamp starts on the 24th. Are you joining me 👇🏻Comment below or shoot me a message if you’re in. 😘💌
IMPORTANTE/ IMPORTANT :
Eu tenho depressão desde os meus treze anos. Caio muito facilmente no chamado "fundo do poço". Mas de alguma maneira e sempre com muitas dificuldades consegui sair. Hoje o meu estado de depressão é maior. Tenho medos que nunca tive, choro como se não houvesse amanhã, não consigo sair do poço. Aliás já costumo dizer: além de cair no poço, ainda o escavei mais fundo do que ele era. Não sei como reerguer porque quando sinto que luto e tento subir o poço algo me empurra de forma bruta para baixo se rindo de mim. Por favor, não fechem os olhos a esta doença. É grave e muitas vezes discriminada, ridicularizada... não é. É uma sentença de morte da tua cabeça ao qual ninguem te fez acusação a não ser tu mesmo. Ninguém consegue ser tão mau contigo como tu és para ti próprio.
........................................................................ I've been depressed since I was thirteen. I fall very easily in the so-called "bottom of the pit." But somehow and always with many difficulties I managed to get out. Today my state of depression is greater. I have fears I never had, I cry as if there was no tomorrow, I can not get out of the well. By the way, I say: besides falling into the well, I still digged it deeper than it was. I do not know how to rebuild because when I feel that I struggle and try to climb the well something pushes me roughly down laughing at me. Please do not close your eyes to this disease. It is serious and often discriminated against, ridiculed ... it is not.
It's a death sentence on your head is not accusatory. No one can be as bad to you as you are to yourself.
