interestingly enough, depending on what we’re going through, this is the LAST sentiment we’d want to hear. i have clients who have shared the feeling that, if they “could just be anybody else”, things would be far better. it’s a feeling i honor. BUT... & i’ll keep repeating this one. We literally can’t be anybody but ourselves. this frees us up to move through the struggles, with support, so that we can breathe air into what is uniquely ours. sometimes this seems hidden.... let’s hold ourselves w/ patience & love while we figure it out - who we are doesn’t have to be a question with only one answer! thoughts? #mondaymotivation let’s go #mindfulness #psychology #insight #wellness #mentalhealth #selflove #relationship #connection #notsoidlemind

I climbed to the top of a very tall literal mountain ⛰. #Agoragoals, so proud of myself because, though wide open spaces isn't agoraphobia, it has been coming for my outdoors activity and I have NOT been having it. Its also a good confidence boost and reminds me to bring the same attitude to my job search even if now I'm home, tired, and deflated. #mentalhealth #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthdiary #anxiety #depression #emetophobia #wellbeing #agoraphobia #arfid #ecotherapy #mountain

To the incredible soul reading this, rise with unshakeable intentions while living passionately present in each gifted moment.✨ • The #fambam has been in mountains for five days, jaw dropping views and memories. River rafting today and sunset horseback riding tomorrow.✨

We cannot pour from an empty cup. To love anyone properly we must learn to love ourselves. What do you love about yourself?

My favourite part of recovery is seeing how much my body has changed in the last two months since I quite drinking. I’ve lost 10lbs and I’ve noticeably skimmed down. My size 3 pants no longer fit when just a couple months ago they were too tight. I’ve been back to the gym for a few weeks now and pretty excited to get back to where I was before I let drugs and alcohol take control of my life. To get back into training mode to compete. Sobriety really does give you so many gifts. #recovery #fitlife #gymlife #fitnessmotivation #fit #sober #clean #addict #fitforlife #sobriety #soberforlife #mentalhealth #mentalillness #love #life #always #backtome

Afternoon spent relaxing in the sun, now it's time to explore more of beautiful Hvar. Such an amazing place. 🙌🏻☀️😍 . . #grateful #greatday

Fertility journeys are not always easy roads to walk. While conception may come easy for some, it can be difficult & painful for others. Approximately 1 in 7 couples struggle with infertility, yet it still is a taboo topic that does not get the attention it deserves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you're on the outside, make sure to be sensitive about these topics. While it may seem harmless to ask couple about when they're having a baby or why they haven't had a baby yet, consider that it is an extremely sensitive issue that some may not want to talk about. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For those struggling with infertility, know that you are not alone and help is available. Thanks to @angeliquepanagos for speaking out about her journey and breaking the silence on infertility

Meet Sabina everyone!! The cheekiest lil monkey that ever lived. Thank you so much for reminding me that there can be so much joy in the little things. You’re an absolute ray of sunshine. I love these pictures SO much and just being here has been such a emotional but amazing experience. And you know what? I wouldn’t change it for the world, because you deserve the best education available. This school is here for you and I only wish I could do more because everyone here has shown me so much love and such kindness. I love you! ❤️ (At which point she normally goes ‘same to you! I love you too Sofiii’)

Today, remind yourself, you are a mountain, just taking your time to rise up. #loveyourself #everythingisgonnabefine #mentalhealth #counseling
