🥐 ROLL MODEL 🥐 J/K- I’m actually more of a weirdough. 💁🏻♀️ (get it🤣)
So... I’ve been so nervous to post this picture! Not because of the fact that it shows my normal, womanly love handles and belly, but because of the judgments I’m afraid people will make about the amount of skin showing. I’ve wondered if people will think I’m being immodest, or asking for attention or if they will be embarrassed by my actions.
I’ve been torn over what’s more important to me... the thoughts and feelings of others or my own
Part of coming to a place of body acceptance for me has been to really LOOK at each and every part of who I am. To speak kind words of love to every area that I used to hate. To stop being afraid of having other people see what I considered to be flaws.
Like, my arms.
Or the back of my legs and bum.
The cellulite I have like most women in the world.
The rolls around my middle.
I follow SO MANY incredible women who are breaking boundaries on beauty standards. I love seeing how their bodies look like mine. I love feeling like I’m not alone, that the majority of women in the US are MY SAME SIZE and that what we see in ads and in movies and magazines and on Instagram isn’t a true representation of the norm.
While still maintaining my conservative values.🖤
So, while you probably wont see me in my underwear ever 🙈🤣 I will be contributing to the normalization of all body sizes in my own small way. Because I believe it’s so important for the well being of women and girls. And for my own happiness. 🙌🏻
I hope my friends and family and followers can help support me in that!
You are all incredibly important and so beautiful to me. I’ve loved all your encouraging words and thoughtful exchanges on body love, mental health, anxiety, depression, beauty standards, clothing, jokes and laughs and everything else that makes this little page what it is. 😭🖤🖤
You and your happiness mean the world! Thank you for sticking around with me. I hope you are finding something here that helps you to love and accept yourself for exactly who you are! It’s a hard road, but soooo worth it! 🖤🖤
💚Let’s talk #MensMentalHealth! @mentalhealthamerica Major Mental Health Problems Affecting Men:
1️⃣ 6 million men suffer from depression a year. Men are likely to report fatigue, irritability, loss of interest in work or hobbies, rather than feelings of sadness.
2️⃣ Approximately 19.1 million American adults ages 18-54 have anxiety disorder. 3 million men have panic disorder or phobias.
3️⃣ 2.3 million Americans are affected by bipolar disorder. Age of onset for men is between 16-25 years old.
Also, the impact of trauma can have long term affects with attachment, stability, emotional regulation, sleep patterns, guilt/shame, increase blood pressure, and/or numbness/detachment from thoughts about the trauma. 💙How are you supporting men in your lives
We head back tomorrow, and it feels weird!
While in Cambodia I was telling Mark that I have some anxiety that when I get to the states my life will be the same as it was. As though somehow once I touch down on U.S. soil all the hard work I’ve done since October will have vanished. I’d revert back to being tired and sad, I’d become unhappily complacent, I’d follow the same unhealthy patterns, I’d be scared; all progress would just be gone.
He said having that feeling is probably a good thing because recognizing that fear means there’s no way I will allow myself to get to that point; knowing me I think that’s true.
This picture is close to the exact moment that I knew I could never stop living my life the way I’ve started to. We were driving ATV’s through the country side of Siem Reap, seeing farmers work, seeing buffalo and cows in the field, seeing gorgeous country views and I remember thinking “holy smokes the world is fucking beautiful, and I never want to stop exploring it”
This trip has had a lot of ah-ha moments for me, but this is the moment I knew that even though I can’t always control where my mental health goes I can control the parts in between, I can control the parts of me that I want to stick around. The people I open up to, the kindness I show, the love I give, the work I do, the gratitude I have for being privileged enough to explore the world; that, that I can control.
If you’re not trying to learn and grow as a person you’re not moving forward in your life at all. So, of course I have more work to do, we all do, but I have a lot of exciting things coming up that I’m pumped for.
In two weeks I’m truly betting it all on myself, this upcoming month my family and I will be working to build out my van, a trip to Chicago is in the works for the near future, in August I’m going to Hawaii, in November I’m backpacking in Chile, and in between all those things Well, who the heck knows.
MOOD today because my CORRECTED marriage certificate is in and I can finally go change my name and officially be Mrs. Drury. 🙌🏻 #happydance
A little backstory: last week as I was preparing to head to the social security office to change my name (yes, I know, I’ve waited 8 months to do this, but it’s me and I’m always late to everything and we figured for the next baby I should actually be a Drury on their birth certificate) I actually read through our marriage certificate for the first time. Come to find out, my birth name was MY MOM’S name 🤦🏼♀️ Silly us, we didn’t listen when they told us to “read over the information on the license and make sure everything is correct” because what fun is following the rules I guess the world just needed one more Kristie and it led us all to ask funny questions like, “so does your mom have two husbands Or does Luke have two wives Is your mom actually married to Luke”
Peeved as I was at first, it was actually pretty funny because of course, this type of stuff always happens to me. But today the certificate is in! I’m actually, officially Morgan Kloth at both my birth and on the day of my wedding and now I can officially become Morgan Drury.
Now starts the next fun phase: heading to the DMV (where you’re practically asked to bring everything down to the U.S. Constitution), adjusting my credit + debit cards, online accounts, healthcare information, and who even knows what else because I’m sure I’ll find a number of things I wasn’t thinking about. As if the name change process isn’t stressful enough I just had to make it more difficult 🤣
My advice to current and future brides: read the license 16 times before you sign it. Just do it. You’ll thank yourself later, trust me 😉
💚Let’s talk #MensMentalHealth! “I just felt lost and I didn’t know how I got there.” @bigsean opened up about his struggles with depression and anxiety. He shared for the past year, he has been on a journey of seeking clarity, exploring relationships, and changes he made in his life. 💙How do you seek clarity for yourself
Le manque de temps ne devrait pas être une raison ou un obstacle à prendre soin de toi.
Si tu ne prends pas soin de toi, personne d’autre ne le fera. C’est triste, mais vrai!
Est-ce que tu te rends compte à quel point tu es importante
Est-ce que tu ressens ta réelle valeur
J’ai eu longtemps de la difficulté (et encore) à reconnaître ma valeur et c’est ce qui faisait que je ne prenais plus soin de moi.
Prendre un bain de temps en temps ce n’est pas assez. Il faut mieux manger, prendre soin de son corps, de son énergie, de ses limites, de ses émotions et de son âme. Oui ça fait beaucoup, mais on ne commence pas tout d’un coup!
Dans les dernières années j’ai pris soin de mon énergie et de mon âme, mais j’ai mis de côté ma santé physique. Le corps est un tout et on ne peut pas négliger un aspect.
Et comment on y arrive On doit se mettre en priorité dans son horaire, dans sa vie et ralentir le rythme ailleurs.
👉Tu trouveras dans ma bio le lien vers mon guide gratuit pour t’aider à intégrer des moments pour te faire du bien en toute simplicité.
✨Partage moi quel aspect de ton être à besoin de self-care présentement .
Lack of time should not be a reason or an obstacle to taking care of yourself.
If you do not take care of yourself, no one else will. That’s sad but true!
Do you realize how important you are
Do you feel your true value
I had a hard time (and again) to recognize my value and that was why I was not taking care of myself anymore.
Taking a bath now and then is not enough. You have to eat better, take care of your body, your energy, your limits, your emotions, and your soul. Yes, that's a lot, but you don’t have to do all at once.
In the last years, I took care of my energy and my soul, but I put aside my physical health. The body is a whole and we can not neglect an aspect.
And how do we get there We must prioritize ourself in our schedule, in our life and slow down. .
✨Tell me what aspect of your being needs self-care now
Namaste🙏ich bin auf dem Weg zu einem wunderschönen Ort an der Ostsee, dem „das WEISSENHAUS Grand Village Resort & Spa“, ein traumhaftes Schloßgut am Ostseestrand, umgeben von einem märchenhaften Park… Dort darf ich großartige Therapeuten in meine geliebte hawaiiarische Heilarbeit einweihen, damit auch an solchen Orten der ALOHA-Spirit gelebt und in die Herzen der Gäste weitergetragen wird. Ich freue mich und fühle es wird sehr lichtvoll und besonders. Und ich liebe es zu fliegen… denn ich liebe den Moment wenn das Flugzeug die Wolkendecke durchbricht und meine Seele in den grenzenlosen Horizont blicken kann. Dieser Moment erinnert mich an unser Bewusstsein. Unseren Alltag verbringen wir so oft wie ein Flugzeug unten auf der Startbahn. Wir sehen die Wolken über uns...vielleicht regnet es sogar, sind gestresst,zweifeln, ärgern uns und warten und warten und warten auf der Startbahn des Lebens😉. Und wir denken dann unser Leben sei ein endloses Warten unter dieser Wolkendecke.Die Wahrheit ist du und ich sind der endlose Himmel, die Sonne, der Mond und auch die Sterne. Die Wolken versperren uns nur die Sicht , und wir vergessen wer wir wirklich sind... Du bist so beschäftigt mit dem Regen, dass du vergisst, dass du wie der strahlende grenzenlose ewiger blauer Himmel bist. Ganz egal, welche Wolken unten vorbei ziehen.Der Himmel verändert sich nicht, genauso wie dein Bewusstsein ewig und endlos ist.
Möge dein Tag dich ins Licht fliegen lassen und dich erinnern:
Wir sind nicht unterhalb den Wolken gefangen ✨Wir sind ewiges Bewusstsein🙏✨ ALOHA #lovemylife #aloha #blessed #liveyourtruth #followyourheart #love
Yes, you will fall and probably
more often than you would like;
but it is not the falling which
defines your character, for to be
human is to make mistakes.
What says the most about you,
is the ability to pick yourself up
not matter how many times you
have fallen, and still proudly hold
your heart up to the sky.

"I can’t even begin to imagine the confusion, the loneliness, the pain that has been a part of your story," she says. "I am so sorry you felt this was your only way out, that this was your only choice. And, I am here and I want to understand your pain," she adds.

How are you feeling after the super full equinox moon
Did you gain clarity/insight about something that you have been focussing your energy on
Are you ready to take the action required to bring structure to your currently intangible ideas to channel creative life force into manifesting your goals OR Are you taking some time out for stillness, love and wisdom to permeate your being for flow and harmony to influence the choices you now make
Neither is the correct answer. Identify the appropriate flow for you now and align for greater harmony.

How to choose the right teacher for you
In today's age of gurus and experts, abundance of options can be daunting. However, you don't need to drown in the sea of content and go down the rabbit hole of each and every funnel out there...there's a way to explore what's right for you, and that way we call: RESONANCE.
Resonance is not attraction, and takes practice to master.
How to do it What does it mean

This is the best time to have a break through.
When you are quiet and let everything process in your mind. When you let everything simmer, the best parts come out.
We can't be running around constantly putting stuff in our brain and not letting it actually understand what has been dumped in!
This is one of the reasons that meditation is so beneficial. It allows your mind to settle and get everything sorted out.
Think you can't meditate Or have you tired and it never works
Not to fear, your brain can still process all the information if you are not sitting perfectly still and crosslegged. Movement meditation is a thing, and it works.

My monthly wellness box is arriving today. I honestly wait all month for it.
The thing about it is that it re motivates me every single month to make better choices in my life... my husbands life and my kids life. I’m just like anyone else wjth temptations and wants and sometimes by the end of the month we fall off the wagon especially after birthday parties or hard weeks at work. This wellness box is the way for me to say yes to me and health consistently. It snaps be back into action. So for those who wonder if LRP is worth it. The real question should be do you value your own health enough to commit every single month to review and revamp and become the actionista for your family.
Fell it’s expensive Being sick is 10 times more expensive. Just a little hard truth sometimes.
Are you afraid to ask for what you need
Often we are told that asking for support or help is a sign of weakness.
I am here today to remind you that asking for support is a form of self care.
Accepting personal responsibility for what is or is not working in your life will free you up to seek support and grow stronger on your journey.
“Us curvy girls gotta stick together.” (If you remember saying this, know that I still love you)
Someone told me this about two years ago in a conversation (that she started) about thigh chafing... I remember being so offended I didn’t even know what to do.
You know what I didn’t do A N Y T H I N G about it. I didn’t tell her that she hurt my feelings. I didn’t take a good look in the mirror and reflect. I sure as heck didn’t make any changes.
I’ve played sports my entire life. I wasn’t the most gifted of athletes, but what I lacked in talent, I made up for in grit.
And I had NEVER considered myself “curvy.” It took me another year and half to get my butt in gear; moments like these stick in my head and strengthen my resolve to help others find their happy, healthy.
There is no need to go at it alone. Join our family; laugh and love and maybe even win a few prizes.
All I’m waiting on is you.
Homework I gave one of my clients 👇
I asked my client if she would make a list every day, of things that are GOING WELL. From having a good-hair-day, to feeling good, to simply getting out of bed in the morning, to receiving a compliment... whatever.
I asked her to do this not because she is doing something wrong or that there is something wrong with her.
I asked her to do this because this is what she shared with me throughout our conversations: "I'm not good enough", "I'm not worthy", "Good things are happening in my life but I notice I focus on the other stuff more."
Making a daily list of reminders of all the things that are going well in your life (like... you got to eat food right!) will shift the focus on the good, because there ARE amazing things happening.
It's so easy to focus on what we DON'T have, what is MISSING. And it's totally okay, I get it.
But let's not disregard how good life already is for us. Let's not talk to ourselves in a way that diminishes our radiance and beauty. Let's make little shifts in perspectives like this, just for ourselves.
I have been doing this practice with her as well (I often do this because I get to be part of the experience a little bit deeper), and it is SO simple. But it works.
What's on your list

Now is the time to take advantage of the discounted price and get added. I still have a couple slots left. Are you in Let me know ASAP!!
💜STUDENT OF THE MONTH💜
I had the honor of guiding this amazing brother through a private yoga and pranayama session in the garden. He is a cool cat and we are honored to have his energy in our casa. We put out a few promotions... most classes attended in a month and a yoga expo promotion and he won. Lucky me.
If you see him at your practice, talk to him ... you’ll be happy you did. He is kind and caring soul. I love his tmnt practice attire. We are all superheroes. 🙏🏼
-I found yoga in february 2018
-i first started doing yoga at home after years of wanting to try by watching online videos, mostly "yoga with adriene" because i was too embarassed to go to a yoga class not knowing anything.
My first class was in August 2018 at Casa Mannabliss.
-my favorite pose is pigeon, but maybe now with mermaid arms 😊
-my mantra is "i am a guiding spirit"
- Casa is my home away from home! Theres no place i’d rather be. There is such positive energy from everyone there and the building itself! All the teachers have their own styles and they are beautiful beautiful souls. Theres awesome events, ceremonies, workshops, concerts, etc. Its just the greatest place in the world! When the meditation instructors tell me to go to my sacred placs, my first thought usually is 'im already here'
Jeremy, we love you .... we are because you are!!!

Today's #WomenHistoryMonth story is about a young woman who continues to walk her own path, Merin Peter. Let me tell you three things about her. 1.) After graduating from one of India's top law schools, she got an offer to work at South-east Asia's leading law firm in Mumbai. 2.) Realizing that she didn't enjoy legal practice, after two years, she left the law firm. Instead of blindly jumping into the next thing, she relished the moment of quiet introspection about her life and purpose. During this meditative period of figuring out her next move, Merin put her legal knowledge and skills to good use as a legal consultant. 3.) She's since embarked on a new path as an aspiring entrepreneur. Outside of her career interests, she's passionate about women's issues and education for girls. Reflecting on her decision to leave the law firm she said: "I agonized about making this decision for months, because I was afraid. I was afraid because I didn't want to disappoint my parents; I was fortunate to work for a great boss and I didn't want to disappoint him as well, because he gave me an opportunity, you know... Also, I was afraid of what my friends and relatives would think of me. But ultimately I made the decision because, despite my fear, I had to be true to Merin -myself. And of course, I want to make a difference in my home country just not through law." __________ Merin's story shows us that we should not allow our fears of being a disappointment to control us and paralyze us from living our truth. We're not all meant to be walking the same path. And that's OKAY. #WomenHistoryMonth #journey #introspection #liveyourtruth @merinpeter
Smile first and the mirror will smile back at you... Your external world is a direct representation of YOU....your thoughts, your stories & your internal Programs
So how does your outer world look
How does your inner world FEEL
I’ve never been more surer about anything....personal growth & expansion is the KEY to EVERYTHING YOU DESIRE
When we take responsibility for our inner demons....the stories that suck, the thoughts of blame, judgement, victimism... When we heal our inner world....ANYTHING & EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE
And you know what Growth is sometimes difficult.
Growth is the WORK
But growth is the most beautiful thing you will ever experience
There’s a reason why more & more people are looking for community support, life coaching & mentoring to help them navigate these waters
I’ve found my ‘system’ of mentors, coaches, Expansion & I’d love to share it with you if you are searching for something a little deeper in your life
Comment ‘I’m Ready’ below & I’ll show you how it works
So Here I am - 17 days later. Oddly enough, 17th was the day my Dad was born in January and today of all days, I had the sudden urge to write this post. Synchronicity is amazing 🙏🏽💕
I’ve almost arrived at the end of my time here in this beautiful country - a place emblazoned with richness of history, spirituality, culture, architecture, nature and the most magical of all - the Khmer People with hearts of the golden sun, who have planted a seed in my heart like I never would have imagined.
This has been a truly inspiriting and emotional 3 weeks travelling through my Father’s home country Cambodia, as I toured my way (walking 527KM as of today) from the Spiritual North to the serene Southern tip, where I am currently zen-ing out to the miles upon miles of powdery white sand and crystalline turquoise ocean glistening at fingertips distance from me.
An enlightening Journey guided by meaning and a deep sense of longing to finally learn my roots - I came, I saw, I touched, I learned, and I felt with the deepest parts of my Soul.
After Dad’s passing 6 months ago, it became my sole mission to understand where my father came from, the reasons he became the magnificent character he was, and why he raised me in the distinctive ways that he did. My curiosity to connect with the country that gave my dad his first breath entirely consumed me. So I came Alone, a decision I am entirely Thankful for because I KNEW this was a transformation I needed to experience in Solitude.
Illuminated with overpowering LOVE & Compassion from the Khmer People (especially the children I was lucky enough to meet and work with in the villages), and at times fraught with unanticipated Dangers, shock, pain, sadness and stress along the way haha 😅 - I can say that I will walk onwards from my adventure here with pure satisfaction, contentment and clarity shining brightly on to my next path.
I KNOW I will be coming back to Cambodia - To experience more, to do more, and mostly - to Help More and Give Back, to a community that has grown to have an extraordinarily special place in my ❤️.
I look forward to sharing all that I have learned with you soon on my platforms :)
