Going into the weekend with this state of mind. Look, self-love looks different for everyone. The posts that say "real self-love is (insert some BS notion that self-love only looks one way) are full of crap. "Real" (what does that even mean) self-love is about nurturing your mind, body and spirit. And it looks completely different to everyone. To one person it may mean getting dolled up and dancing all night! To another it may mean turning off the phone and retreating from the world. To me it means journaling, meditating and masterbating every single day. The invitation this weekend is to love the shit out of yourself you beautiful, motherfucking goddess - whatever that means to you! Image credit: If you know the *original* creator please tag.
Some of us are out here actually living our best lives. But it’s not because we’re any different than you. ⠀ We have had trauma. We have had pain. We have had incredible adversity in our lives. But the difference is, we chose to embark on a journey of healing. ⠀ Last week, I read the words of @mysticmamma and its truth made me pause, “It is the result of genuine healing that allows us to be brave hearts.” ⠀ It is healing that allows us to be courageous and make our dreams reality. It is healing that gives us the resilience to try and try again. It is healing that makes us brave to be who we truly are and live our lives exactly how we want. ⠀ It is healing that makes our lives so damn incredible. ⠀ True healing also allows us to see our lives as being incredible. Because the truth is, so many of us are actually living our best lives but thinking that we’re just one goal away from that being the truth.⠀ ⠀ Before healing I was searching for things to make me feel whole- accomplishments, relationships, a skinnier body, accolades. I was grasping and striving. And even though my life may have looked perfect, it felt anything but. ⠀ It was when I realized that I needed to heal my wounds- the parts of me that constantly had me grappling and striving that I found my #bestlife. And that wasn’t through things, but through finding myself. ⠀ Yes, healing brought me to my calling, to my partner and to my community. But most importantly, it brought me to my self. ⠀ Wholehearted Woman is my 6 month group coaching intensive, that shows you the pathway to your healing. It shows you how to find your self so that you can truly live your most incredible life. ⠀ **And in honor of #cybermonday and #givingtuesday registration is $100 off and a portion of your payment will be donated to @rachel.cargle Loveland Foundation Therapy Fund for Black Women and Girls.

Sisterhood is woven into our work because when we both started our journey's, we felt alone. The people in our lives didn't understand what we were going through. And this makes the journey so much harder. There's a saying "you're the average of the five people you spend the most time with". Are the people in your life inspiring, doing the healing work, supportive of you and your big dreams? Are they living big bold beautiful lives, or are the stuck in a rut? No judgement. Just reflection and self-discovery. Picture credit: Pinterest. If you know the *original* creator please let us know.
This is such an important reminder. Often we think our best is giving our all, but many times that means giving so much that we’re left depleted and exhausted. Doing our best is about maintaining balance and honoring our needs in the process. This also means knowing our limits. And a reminder, just because someone else can do something doesn’t mean you have to. Everyone is different! (Photo credit: found on Pinterest.

Starting off the week with this state of mind. "What if" is a trap that keeps you playing small. What if I fail? What if I look stupid. What if he doesn't like me back. And the excuses go on and on. WHAT IF YOU SUCCEED AND BEGIN LIVING A LIFE OF YOUR WILDEST DREAMS! What action step can you take this week to shift your perspective from "what if" to why the fuck not? Picture credit: Pinterest.

Should we get a little vulnerable today? I say, why not?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m a recovering people pleaser. I have struggled to be my true self because I was always worried about everyone else's opinion of me. Lately, I remind myself that someone's opinion of me is none of my business. The only opinion that matter is MINE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What’s a struggle you’re facing? And how do you fight it?
🗣 🗣 You heal the void, not them... 6 years ago I started to ask questions. Why did I feel the way I did? Why did I keep attracting certain relationships? Why did I tolerate dysfunction? Who’s going to love me if I walk away from this dysfunction and end up alone? I started to believe that because of my past relationships, odds were that no one would love me and accept me for me. For those who can relate, you know the feeling. What I came to realize was that I hadn’t figured myself out. I had yet to accept myself and all my worries were about someone else who had yet to even come into my life. I learned that none of us are hard to love unless we choose to harden our past versus heal for our present and future. It’s my wish for you that you don’t allow your past to equal your future. That you look within to love yourself and accept all that you are. From there, you will not only find that you’re accepted by another, but you’ll also accept them for who they are. See you all shortly from Hawaii. Much love, Armon.
