I’ve had a battle within myself for over 15 years. I have the movie “Shallow Hal” running opposite in my head. A tiny thing you see, I see “My 600 lb Life”. There’s not a magic pill to take, or a switch I can flip. What I can do though is workout, eat right, practice self love. You know who I’m looking good for? Who I’m feeling good for? ME •The answer is me.
IN PSYCHOLOGY THIS IS CALLED THE SELF-FULFILLING PROPHECY. But I loved how @jensincero phrased this because this happens ALL THE TIME in our relationships. And though the examples below may seem obvious, I can almost guarantee that if you reflect on your relationship with yourself or your relationship with others you will spot this tendency. Because it happens too often that we hope to protect ourselves from pain and hurt, just to find ourselves acting in ways that almost guarantee pain and hurt. LIKE… “I am afraid and anxious that he will get mad at me, so I will just tell a white lie.” ONLY TO Be caught in the lie and ultimately he becomes angry. And now also doesn’t trust you. OR “I am afraid of having my heartbroken when I date, so I protect myself by not investing much in my relationships.” ONLY TO Have your heart broken because the people you date feel like you are interested and don’t invest much in your relationships. Double tap if you’ve done this before. Share the post if you feel like it could help others. Happy weekend my friends. ❤️

Sometimes, if things are not going the way we wish, we get so caught up in our current situation that we cannot imagine things changing and so they have a tendency not to. Take control of your future by changing your view, visualise your life being different a month from now, see yourself in a better situation. This does not mean it has to take a month for the change to occur, it could happen much sooner, but know that it will have improved in a month. ✨ ✨ ✨ 👉 You can set up notifications for our posts, if you are following us, by clicking 'Turn on Post Notifications' (in the dropdown on mobile only), this will make sure you are first to see our posts when they go live!

RESISTANCE TO CHANGE COMES IN SO MANY FORMS. This list of 5 is by no means exhaustive but some of the very common reasons for resistance. Also, some people have more than one reason or one reason is caused by another. The important take away is that if you can identify your own resistance to change, then you can actually do something about it. The power of putting words to your feelings and experience is very real. So consider which one of these applies to areas of change that feel difficult in your life. And ask yourself what is one thing you can do today to move toward implementing that change. Double tap if any of these apply to you!
Healing is a direction, not a destination. I’ve had people reach out to me after reading my book saying things like, “I wish I could be where you are, I have so much to get through!” What I want people to realize, is that healing is a choice and it’s a choice I make every single day. Recovery is a choice and it’s a choice I make every single day. This isn’t about going to therapy and AA and then just “being better” and having a great life, the end. It’s not about, “oh you got through it, you’re good.” It’s a daily practice. I’ve gained tools to deal with feelings and situations in ways that are not destructive, but I still need to chose to use those tools. I feel fortunate to have those choices today, and every day, and I strive to make good ones. Sometimes I fail, but I’m always going in the right direction. #highlightreal#highlightrealbook
Creating Good Habits ✨⠀ ⠀ "We are what we repeatedly do." Sometimes that means bad habits. Let's switch gears and try to form some good ones this week. Creating good habits lead to success and reaching our goals. ⠀ ⠀ 📈 Start Easy - find a small goal to start with, like reading a self help book for 10mins a day. Gradually move up to 30mins a day. ⠀ ⠀ 👭 Have a Support System - Find someone to hold you accountable. "Did you make it to your pilates class today?" 😏⠀ ⠀ 📆 Plan - Have an end goal of what you're trying to do and what needs to be done to get there. I want to learn french so every day I'm going to practice saying 3 new words. ⠀ ⠀ 🏅 Reward Yourself - Find a healthy way to reward yourself for sticking with the good habits. It can be a movie, outing with friends or museum (I personally love museums) ⠀ ⠀ Change Starts Now⠀ ⠀ 📸: @grid.v ⠀ ⠀ #happymonday#mondayfeels#mondayinspiration#newweeknewgoals#newweeknewstart#newweekgoals#newweekvibes#newweeknewyou#newweekmotivation#changeyourmindset#changeforthebetter#healthyhabit#positivehabits
DO YOU FEEL AFRAID, ANXIOUS, RESENTFUL, JOYLESS, ABANDONED, ALONE, HURT, INSECURE, UNATTRACTIVE, LEFT OUT, VICTIMIZED…? I’ve been asked several times to talk about individual concerns that impact relationships. Things like, “I feel insecure in my relationships, what am I supposed to do?” or “I’m so angry, I don’t know how to move past it.” I am starting this series with this statement because we all have things that don’t serve us that we, for some reason, cling to…and I mean cling to like our life depends on it. We hold onto crippling beliefs, fears, and self-judgments that keep us locked into patterns of relating to ourselves and others that don’t necessarily serve us or our relationships. After you’ve identified what isn’t serving you (I will post more about this), the next step is, almost always, a decision. The decision to hold on or to let go. I challenge you to let go. What are you prepared to let go of that isn’t serving you?
