Without the darkness you would not appreciate the light as much as you do πŸ™

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

– Michael Jordan

What if all the mistakes you have made were actually of beautiful value? What if there is benefit in all the pain and all the hurtful experiences? What if all these awful things you have been through can be your solid foundation on which you stand firmly while you rebuild your strenght? What if the bad things he did to you, can actually inspire you to NOW become stronger and happier?

Everything is of value. Without the darkness you would not appreciate the light as much as you do. πŸ™

Loving my obliques πŸ˜‚πŸ‘Œ

Today I worked out at home, I focused on all aspects of my body. I especially love seeing my obliques, there is something every sensual about those lines. I took this picture today while I was working out with two dumbells over my head. I noticed how nice those obliques looked in the mirror so I just had to take a picture of them 😁.

I think our bodies are amazing! I have carried 2 babies inside of me and yet my figure snapped back to this shortly after giving birth. That is amazing!

I feel so much appreciation for the flexibility and agility of my body. For its stamina, health and potential. I will continue to honor, love and respect my body for as long as I shall live. πŸ™

  • What do you like about your body?

Milk each moment for the pleasure it brings you πŸŒΌ

β€œAlways go with your passions. Never ask yourself if it’s realistic or not.”

– Deepak Chopra

Life can be so exciting when you dream big and do the things that call you! Dare to dream even bigger! What things are you attracted to in life? Enjoy those things! Have more fun and milk each moment for the pleasure it brings you.

6 years ago I made an exciting decision πŸ₯³

On the 18th of June 2013 I left my position as a language teacher and started as a special education teacher. Best job ever! πŸ™πŸŒΉπŸŒΉπŸŒΉStill the same work place though, I have worked at the same school 12 years now and it is the best work place ever. 6 years as a language teacher and 6 years as a special education teacher. πŸ™

From raging insecurities to strong empowerment πŸŒΌ

“(…) Can you hear the whispers all across the room?
You feel her eyes all over you like cheap perfume
You’re beautiful, but misunderstood
So why you tryna be just like the neighborhood?
I can see it, I know what you’re feelin’
So let me tell you ’bout my little secret
I’m a little crazy underneath this
Underneath this
Do you ever feel like a misfit?
Everything inside you is dark and twisted
Oh, but it’s okay to be different
‘Cause baby, so am I (So am I, so am I, so am I)
Do you ever feel like an outcast?
You don’t have to fit into the format
Oh, but it’s okay to be different
‘Cause baby, so am I (So am I, so am I, so am I-I-I-I-I) (…) “

Ava Max,” So am I”

No matter what you look like, what body type you have or what clothes you have – people will look at you and some will judge you. There will always be those who love the way you look and those who completely disapprove of everything that you are. Let them think as they choose to.

The beautiful part about life is when you finally give up trying to please everyone else, when you finally shake loose from caring about their disapproval or approval. There is so much freedom and empowerment to be felt when you start giving yourself the love and approval you previously tried to get from other people and external things.

It is a process. It takes time. I began working on this 12 years ago, when I was 24. I have come such a long way, I went from having no self esteem what so ever, from feeling like a helpless victim and feeling I had to please everyone around me in order to deserve to be liked a little – I went from all that to really liking myself, inside and outside no matter what other people think of me. I began to appreciate life, to appreciate all experiences – especially the bad ones because they helped inspire me to now become stronger.

I would not even be the happy, confident and empowered woman I am today without every single bad thing that ever happened to me. So I am grateful, for all of it. My entire way of viewing life is 100% different from how I viewed life 12 years ago. If I can change all these limiting insecurities, anyone can.

And no, the external things didn’t change before I felt better. I still look exactly the same way as I did before, I have the same job, the same relationship, I have still gone through all those awful things in my life that left me on the brink of despair – and I have since then gone through even more negative experiences in all aspects of my life. And yet here I am, happier and stronger than ever. Loving life, loving my body and feeling appreciation for every step along my way. Feeling appreciation for every rascal that ever hurt me because I am who I am today because of it all. It is an endless journey that I intend to enjoy. πŸ™
