Our past does not define our future.
Everyday I do my best to reflect on how I can become better than yesterday.
We don’t change overnight, but we can do small things to help.
One day at a time 💕
Do you have a favorite quote you would like me to draw
One of life’s many lessons I’ve learned through personal experience is that we all need a friend in this thing we call life. When the road is rough, dry, and weary, it can seem easy to feel alone, sad, and depressed. Sometimes the little things like a text, DM, or a simple phone call can make someone’s day.
So guys, go through your contact list, check in on an old friend let them know you’re thinking about them, praying for them, and that you’re there for them. Invite them for a cup of coffee, lunch or dinner if you can. Doesn’t matter what your past with each other is. Your action can save a life.
We all deserve a second chance and we all find ourselves in seasons where we need someone. When you’re going through the desert the smallest drop of water can help you push through.
Happy Tuesday y’all. •

grow through what you go through...
Vandaag is mijn les dat ik niet alles in de hand kan hebben... ik kan niet overal de controle over hebben en niet alles in handen willen nemen... mijn taak is om soms de touwen ietsje minder hard vast te pakken en soms maar even te kijken wat de uitkomst daarvan zal zijn... ik heb niet overal invloed op en ik kan niet alles voor zijn.. ik kan niet bepalen voor een ander en iedereen mee laten drijven op mijn vlot... wat ik wel kan doen is goed voor mezelf zorgen en genoeg om mezelf geven om die controle niet meer nodig te hebben... niet zo vast te hoeven houden en vertrouwen... hoe naar dit ook voelt en hoe hard mijn hoofd ook schreeuwt dat ik foute keuzes maak... dit is waar ik doorheen moet groeien... ik kan niet heel de wereld redden zonder eerst bij mezelf te beginnen... een harde les maar wel nodig...
Though everyone said that she was so strong
What they didn't know is that she could barely carry on
But she knew that she would be okay
So she didn't let it get in her way
Sometimes it all gets a little too much
But you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up

The best thing someone ever did for me was let me cry on their shoulder. He had seen me upset at work for months. I was angry, irritable, miserable, whereas before all did was laugh and joke around. We went to a concert one night and he pulled me aside and demanded I tell him what was wrong. All I could do was rant and cry. All he did was listen.
The next I day I got out of bed as soon as I woke up.
Actual facts, that's where so MUCH of mine has developed from. I just recently cut some people out of my life and I already feel so much better about myself. Just know your the only one you need to impress no one else! Get the toxic people your always trying to please out of your life they will just drag you down with them 😥
This painting by #williamblake has shown me to appreciate the beauty in the grotesque. The gorgeousness in the sorrow. The great, in that which may be called evil. And today, i am to do this once again... i am to see the teachings and good in the darkness that i am sinking myself today. A darkness so well known, that it might feel like home. I am to make a decision, a decision that will get me into darkness. A dark so black, that will end up blinding me. In that darkness, a two headed beast lives. A beast that shall swallow me whole for me to be out of the darkness, for from out of it’s belly, a new me shall come. One head, gives me promises of greatness and achievements, it call itself “growth”, but it’s a face whose song I’ve never heard before. The other, is a grotesque face, an angry face, a face that makes you tremble, but also makes you cry. It shows anger and hatred, but has the saddest eyes in the world. This face is a friend, maybe even a lover of mine. A face I’ve carried with all of my life. “Brokenness” is it’s name. And one of this faces will devour me and crush every inch of my essence, so that i can become something else. Something new. For over 2 years I’ve been free of this beast, and today i am to face it again, naked, vulnerable, scared and hurt. Because of this, i am to disappear for a while. For i am battling demons. I ask for forgiveness to every follower i have, for i won’t post any content in a while. But I’ll be off social media and human interaction for a while. My depression, dysmorphia, self loathing are over the top, and if i am to face the beast that is to swallow me and the darkness that surrounds me, i must do it with my head strong. I love you all, guys. Keep pushing and inspiring, keep grinding and motivating. Keep being the iron. Keep being better. #be_the_iron #bodybuilding #powerbodybuilding #strength #mentalhealth #help #fightdepression #fightdysmorphia #thegreatreddragon #throughstruggle
Everyday some of us go through unbearable situations, pressure all around even from ourselves. Even though we poise with smiles looking ravishing outside deep down there is a yening for rescue, a cry for freedom and a prayer for breakthrough.
Depression looks happy and normal. Depression does not go around announcing the pain and pressure within. Sometimes depression just needs to be alone and come back to people with a smile.... 2Chorintiand 4:8-9 Remember we are hard pressed on every side, we are afflicted in every way, perplexed, but not crashed, not driven to despair
Refuse to be driven to despair, never allow whatever is happening around you crush you. There is still courage withing you run to any safer space or place that will inject strength to you. You are never alone never... the devil whispering that to you is a liar don't believe it... DONT ✋
Well i did make all the mistakes shown in the video but i always tried to learn from them, i’m glad that my parents always understood my feelings and were there to help me through it.
But we can’t avoid the fact that we sometimes ignore the signs of “cry for help”, it can be shown in many disguised forms like sudden change in behaviour, silence or showing unnecessary temper.
Well the understanding has to be from both ends, we need to understand each other better. Start talking about it with each other, it will make it easier.

Perinatal and postnatal depression can be caused by an omega 3 deficiency.
Perinatal depression is depression that occurs during pregnancy (postnatal depression is more specifically depression during the period of time following child-birth).
I thought that I would share this information with you, in the hope that if anyone reading this is experiencing perinatal depression, that they would consider trialling omega 3 supplementation. It's safe during pregnancy and alongside antidepressant medication (as long as you don't have any bleeding disorders). The only factor that you need to consider, is stopping the omega 3 a couple of weeks before your due date, since it can have blood thinning effects. So be mindful of this, especially if you are having a Caesarean Section.
I have personally seen women with perinatal depression, recover from depression within 4 weeks of taking high-dose omega 3 and a couple of other nutrients (without the use of antidepressant meds).
Is there anyone that you know, that needs to see this post Tag them in the comment section below.
To learn about the right doses of omega 3 for depression, check out my YouTube video on the topic. Put "Omega 3 for depression" into YouTube and you'll find it, or access my YouTube video through the link in my bio.

I’ve had depression since at least my teens. I know that dungeon all too well...I know the ugliness of the spiral down. When you’ve been doing well and then you wake up sad, it doesn’t even have to be bad - it could just be a bad day - but I go into panic mode that this is the beginning of the spiral down...and that’s where my focus goes...panic. I don’t want to go there. When Summer was 5, my parents took her and I to Disney World. Just so you know, my Summer is a peanut - short, skinny, and the weight of a feather. We went to Typhoon Lagoon which is a water park. She was daring enough to attempt this tube ride where she rides alone in an enclosed tunnel to the bottom. She was nervous so my mom had gone first so she could be there for her at the bottom and I was going to go after her. I sent her off but at the very first corner, she was so light that her tube got stuck. I could still see her. She started panicking and crying and the water was swooshing by her. Disney was calling for someone to go in and get her - they wouldn’t let me do it!!!! It was dark in the tunnel, but if I just leaned in a bit I could make eye contact with her. Until help got there, I leaned inside and kept saying ‘Summer, look at mom. As long as you can see mom’s eyes, you know you’re ok.’ And she would look at me and slowly stop crying, but then she would look at the water rushing by and start panicking and crying all over again. For what felt like an eternity, I kept reminding her to look at my eyes...focus on me. For quite some time now, my devotional has been teaching me to focus on giving thanks, even in the dark times. It was easier to read because I wasn’t in the dark. But things have changed. 10 days ago the heavy weight of depression showed up at my door...I’m having a hard time looking in God’s eyes and remembering that, as long as I can see Him, I’m good. I keep wanting to look at the rushing waters, the scary spiral down to the dungeon of depression. I’ve got to force my eyes up, give thanks in the hard, and know I’m good cuz HE’S GOOD. My God is leaning in the dark tunnel and saying ‘just keep your eyes on me, and you’re good.’ #fightdepression #disneyworld #mentalhealth
Kaltnasse Regenluft empfing sie, als sie aus dem geöffneten Fenster sah. Sie mischte sich zu dem Duft ihres heißen Tees. Fasziniert beobachtete sie die alte Eiche in ihrem Garten. Sie wogte im Sturmwind, mit peitschenden Ästen und rauschenden Blättern. Einige hatten sich dem Herbststurm ergeben und wirbelten durch die Luft, andere waren standhafter und klammerten sich an die Äste. Sie hatte sich schon oft gewünscht, dass Bäume sprechen könnten. Wie oft hatte sie die Hand an die altersgegerbte Rinde dieses Baumes gelegt und sich vorgestellt, er erzähle ihr seine Geschichte. Wie oft saß sie schon in seinen Ästen, hoch oben und blickte auf die Erde hinab. Dort oben herrschte Frieden. Zwischen Eichhörnchen und nistenden Vögeln gab es keine Verantwortung. Niemanden, der ihr sagte, was sie zu tun hatte. Doch jetzt war es Herbst, die schützende Blätterkrone wurde lichter, die Stürme heftiger. Also saß sie hier, in der schützenden Wärme ihrer Wohnung, bei heißem Tee und Kerzenschein und beobachtete, wie ihr geliebter Baum dem Sturm trotzte. Und während sie ihn betrachtete, so fasste auch sie den Entschluss, ihrem eigenen Sturm zu trotzen. Auch sie konnte standhaft sein. Auch sie konnte die stürmischen Zeiten aushalten, um die Sonne umso glücklicher grüßen zu können, wenn der Sturm vorübergezogen war.

This is such a debatable topic and I urge you to have a discussion on this topic in the comments below. I think money is everything but it shouldn’t be the only thing keeping you happy. What I mean to say is, yes, yes, yes .. money is THE most important thing in the world right now, it gives you a form of security, allows you to have a sane life, gives your family the life they need and want including educating them, paying for the medical bills etc. so money is VERY important and I would never encourage people to think otherwise. But yes, at the same time your happiness shouldn’t be attached to money. Today, if you are not meeting up with your goals then that doesn’t mean you’re a failure. For example; if you’re not wealthy enough by the time you’re 40. That’s okay. Work harder, work better and you might reach your goal at say, 45 But don’t lose 5 years of life worrying, stressing and more importantly RUINING YOUR HEALTH in hope to get to where you want because that’s doing you more harm than good. Enjoy those five years, work hard, eat well, exercise regularly and keep a healthy and balanced work-life. #money #goals #life #happiness #health

This is something I've 100% struggled with over the past few months. I've felt like I either need to be on my game & doing things perfectly, or just not do anything at all.. & since I'm human.. & humans are not perfect... I chose the route of sitting in a funk & not doing anything.
For the past week, I've really been repeating this in my head every day. "Better than yesterday". It feels a lot less heavy. Less overwhelming. Less weight on my shoulders. I just need to keep being better than I was yesterday. It's all about grace... not perfection! (Thank you @emilyley)
Instead of letting myself go into a downward spiral over having 3 pieces of pizza at 10 o'clock at night.. I will choose to wake up the next day & be better about my nutrition. If I miss a workout one day.. I will get back at it the next day instead of getting off track for days or weeks at a time. If I mistreat my spouse or kids one day.. I will do better tomorrow!
Perfection isn't a thing for us humans. Just work on improving a day at a time❤ Better. Than. Yesterday.
I never thought in a million years that I’d ever get a tattoo but honestly I’ve been thinking about it for 2+ years now! I chose to get a semicolon with a heart and I’m so happy that I finally did it! It’s been on my mind and in my heart for a very long time now but I was scared too death and always backed out of getting it done. 🥰💜
I want to share a little about what a semicolon represents because some people do not know. The semicolon is the punctuation mark used when an author could’ve chosen to end their sentence but chose not to. The author is you, the sentence is your life and your story isn’t over yet! This is near and dear to my heart because of my struggles with depression, anxiety and yes I’ve honestly considered committing suicide. .
Long story short, I’m in a much better place now and I reached out for even more help! I’m so grateful that I did and I thank God, my hubby Allen, my therapist, my family and friends for helping me through all of this! I hope and pray that this post touches at least one person’s heart and let’s them know that they are not alone with their battle with depression. 💜💕
Rebecca thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for everything! You are amazing! 💖
