That first fish of the trip that reminds you why you drive thousands of kilometres and spend countless days contemplating if you'll ever feel your toes again because your waders suck ass #worthit #steelhead #explorebc #flyfishing
Bread. Look at this thick slice of bread. Look at it, with all the toppings it got. This creamy guacamole, this delicious hummus and all the other goodness around it. Look at this meal and don’t think about taking a big bite and enjoying it. Can you I can’t. However, for a very long time I wouldn’t let myself have bread. Whilst in recovery I went through phases. In some I could have it, in others not. But never did I eat such a thick slice since it all started. Before my anorexia I wasn’t the biggest bread person, but I still was a huge fan. From a freshly baked bread to a crispy toast or any other baked goods. I loved them! Than came my eating disorder and it all changed.
I‘m still somewhat afraid. But yesterday I challenged my fears and had this delicious bread (with guacamole!!) and it was soooo good!
However, I still don’t think that I‘m going to be a major bread person, but now I at least know that I don’t have to be afraid of and try to avoid delicious bread!😋 #bread #chickpeas #amazing #delicious #food #vegan #veganfood #vegans #vegansoulfood #healthyfood #healthyrecipes #healthylifestyle #anorexiarecovery #recovery #worthit #life #lifeisbeautiful
I was at my parents house and I found a list of things I wanted to accomplish I made when I was fifteen. I wanted to create something, change the world, use my brains, get not just one degree but three. In this list I noticed I didn’t add “become a mother” to it. I never grew up dreaming of being a mother. Of course when I was younger I assumed marriage and family would come with time, but it was never something I dreamed of or really desired.
I thought back remembering my thoughts on motherhood and my own mom. Moms gave up their time, funds, body’s and everything they had for their kids and during those selfish years in my life that thought seemed miserable to me. Not that I wanted to not be a mom but at the time my goals were egocentric... “what could I do for me”... “How could I change the world” It wasn’t until I became a mom I realized that my greatest contribution to the world might not be something I do but someone I raise. Just some late night thoughts while I feel blessed to be where I’m at. Love seeing my ‘big girl’ with ‘our baby’. •••

If you don't think your anxiety, depression, sadness and stress impact your physical health, think again. All of these emotions trigger chemical reactions in your body, which can lead to inflammation and a weakened immune system. Learn how to cope, sweet friend. There will always be dark days.Kris Carr
How do you cope with all of the above! I believe we all struggle in our own ways with atleast one of the above, maybe some all of the above. I can say I have struggled with anxiety for years and it got worse when Jaycee was diagnosed with cancer. Most days coaching, eating right, and getting my own workout in is what gets me through my super tough anxiety filled days.
I know anxiety isn't healthy and sometimes even a workout doesn't completely help but it never hurts. I'm super grateful for all my awesome friends and family that continue to support and uplift me when I need it and I hope to continue to do the same for anyone in need of just trying to get healthier and making it through one more day. #onedayatatime #bettertogether
Getting last minute tickets to this show was a godsend. This will probably be one of those memories that will continue to inspire me for a lifetime... I dealt with my anxiety about this unplanned venture in a city I’ve never visited (by myself). I didn’t know what to expect from a @gorillaz concert, cartoon, animated, 3D, computerize performances... So when @damonalbarn walked out with a full live band, my head and heart nearly exploded... Being a fan from South Africa appreciating this man for 20+ years admiring his talent, ear and artistry from afar, to see him walk out on stage before my eyes, I was completely gobsmacked by everything that unfolded in front of my eyes... I was so proud to be a fan for all these years from @blurofficial to @gorillaz, every reason seemed to be warranted. He seemed to admire and praise every genre of music, shining a light on basically unknown artists and stepping back while he allowed them to shine... A particularly beautiful moment was when he shone a light on Ibrahim Ferrer, a humble Cuban man who eventually became a member of the iconic Buena Vista Social Club. I don’t usually record when artists speak (just the songs I love), but I had a feeling he was going to have something important to say, so I’m so glad I captured it so I am able to share it with all of you... This night was probably the best unplanned, luckiest evening of my life. It will most likely be on my mind for years, continually inspire me and make my heart race and feel “full” - the power and magic of music never seizes to amaze me. What unfolded before me was truly incredible. I am thankful, humbled, grateful and in awe of what I witnessed on this night... I will hold it close to my heart and continue to draw inspiration from it for years to come ♥️
I am overwhelmed with this feeling!!!! And I gotta tell ya it feels frickin good!!!!! I love the doors that are opening up for me! I love how things are starting to make sense and play their role! I’m SO excited that I’m kicking fear to the side and opening myself up to new and exciting opportunities!!!! This is what I’ve been working for! 😁💖😁💖😁💖 ❇️ #JustSayYes ❇️ #healthyandhappy ❇️ #synsquad
Some people would call this excessive but this is my *release*. I’m not the fastest. I’m not the strongest. But damnit, I keep going. I fight through the sweat and the soreness and I keep going. When I start thinking about the clutter of life, I push harder. When my brain starts to wander and my anxiety creeps in, I up my speed. I push until the only thing I can think about is the next breath I take and how I’m more capable today than I was yesterday. I strive each day to honor the girl I was by loving the woman I am. The way I do that is by proving that the woman I am can overcome the challenges in front of me and accomplish the goals I set for myself. Life is busy. Campaign life is all consuming. I love my work and the causes I advocate for - but what do I have if I don’t have my mental and physical health Exercise helps me with both. It’s my hobby. My passion. My happy place. Keep grinding. .

Found these two street dogs wandering around Costa Rica about a month ago. They wouldn’t stop following our chef and vice versa. So he decided to bring them back stateside. After a long quarantine, they made it. #rescuedogs #streetdogs #costarica #mansbestfriend #worthit
