My word for the year: Align

My word for the year: Align.⁠⁠For the last five years, I've felt kind of in between versions of myself, if that makes sense.

As I delve deeper this year, I'm focusing on being more intentional so that everything I'm allowing into my life feels right to my core, and aligns with my soul.⁠⁠What word did you choose for 2021? ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠#ichoosebeauty #selfkindness #align #inspiringwords #inspiringquote #inspiringthoughts #inspirationalquotestoliveby #inspirationalmessage #inspirationalsayings #inspirationalthought #healingtools #healingyourself #selflovematters #selflovetips #selflovemovement #selfloveadvocate #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthhelp #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthcare #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthcommunity #mentalwellness

For the last five years, I’ve felt kind of in between versions of myself, if that makes sense. The move to Maui tested me in ways I never imagined, but the hard work I’ve been doing in therapy keeps bringing me closer and closer to my true self. ⁠⁠

I feel more aligned personally and in all other areas of my life than I have before. As I delve deeper this year, I’m focusing on being more intentional so that everything I’m allowing into my life feels right to my core, and aligns with my soul.

What is this teaching me?

When bad things happen in our lives, which they inevitably will for all of us, it's easy to wonder, "Why is this happening to me?"⁠⁠And that's okay.⁠⁠It's absolutely okay to feel your feelings, sit with the pain, process what happened.⁠⁠Rest, feel sorry for yourself, whatever you need to do.⁠⁠Then when things are no longer raw and you're able... ask yourself what the situation is teaching you.⁠⁠There's usually a lesson, something to learn from life's setbacks and tragedies. We are all students on this journey.⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠#ichoosebeauty #lifelessonslearned #lifelessons101 #lifejourney #lifeteachings #lifeislife #wordstoremember #wordstoinspire #thoughtsinwords #wordsfromtheheart #wordsoflife #wordsofinspiration #wordsofwisdom #lifelesson #wordsofencouragement #inspirationalmessage #inspirationalthoughts #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthjourney

Sometimes you have to stand still to move forward

It sounds strange at first, doesn't it? How does standing still move you forward?⁠⁠Think about it like this: When you're caught up in all the rushing around, all the being busy, all the go-go-go... you're basically on auto-pilot, stuck in a never-ending cycle.⁠⁠STOP.⁠⁠Cut out all the noise around you and tune in to your soul. Sit in silence for a few minutes and deeply connect to your heart, your mind, you body.⁣⁠⁠You will feel feelings you're numb to when you're on auto-pilot. You will clearly see things that are blurred during your rapid pace. You will uncover truths you didn't know existed.⁠⁠Only then will you have what you need to move forward.⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠#ichoosebeauty #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessisreal #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthisreal #wordstoremember #wordstoinspire #thoughtsinwords #wordsfromtheheart #wordsoflife #wordsofinspiration #wordsofwisdom #lifelesson #wordsofencouragement #inspirationalmessage #inspirationalthoughts ⁣⁠⁣⁠#listentoyourbody ⁣⁠⁣⁠#listentoyourheart ⁣⁠⁣⁠#listentoyoursoul ⁣⁠⁣⁠#listentoyourself⁠⁠

Feel your feelings

I spent most of my life shoving my feelings down.⁣⁠⁣⁠If I felt sad, I pushed it down. Angry, scared, hurt, traumatized... down the feelings went.⁣⁠⁣⁠Then a few things happened recently that triggered all the shoved-down emotions to bubble up to the surface. They spilled out so hard until my body reacted by getting sick. Pushed to its limits, the vertigo hit.⁣⁠⁣⁠The underlying cause may have been an injury from a decades-old car accident, but what brought my symptoms to the surface was the chaos (and subsequent anxiety) I’d been dealing with over the past 4 years since moving to Maui.⁣⁠⁣⁠And for that I'm grateful.⁣⁠⁣⁠Because if I hadn't been put in a state of mental turmoil, I never would have started the healing process of both my emotional pain and my upper cervical injury.⁣⁠⁣⁠I learned to really feel my feelings, even though it was one of the hardest things I've had to do. And what came out of that work was clarity and a sense of transformation. I still have more to process, but I definitely grew a ton last year.⁣⁠⁣⁠Maybe this speaks to you, too? If so, I encourage you to:⁣⁠⁣⁠Feel your feelings as they happen. Reach down to the ones you've buried. Process them. You will feel a sense of inner peace.⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠#ichoosebeauty #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessisreal #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthisreal #wordstoremember #wordstoinspire #thoughtsinwords #wordsfromtheheart #wordsoflife #wordsofinspiration #wordsofwisdom #lifelesson #wordsofencouragement #inspirationalmessage #inspirationalthoughts

Plan things to look forward to this holiday season

This can really come in handy this time of year! During the holiday season, things can get a bit overwhelming if you’re not careful or can be hard to deal with if you’re struggling with something right now.

Planning something to look forward to is like a double bonus – it shifts your focus to something good PLUS you get to enjoy what was planned when the time comes. It helps me so much!

⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠70,000 thoughts per day and how you can change them

⁣⁠⁣⁠Did you know that the average person has about 70,000 thoughts per day? 70 thousand!!! With that many thoughts, things can easily go very wrong in your mind… or very right. ⁣⁠⁣⁠

During Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I learned so much about how our thoughts affect how we feel. But the incredible thing is we have complete control over those thoughts. How empowering is it to know that by changing your thoughts, you can change your mood?!⁣⁠⁣⁠

The key is to pay attention to all that background chatter going on in your head. Really listen to those thoughts… then reframe them. For example, when you notice yourself thinking something like, “I’ll never get this plan to work,” change it to: “I’m smart enough to figure out how to make this happen.” Instant mood lift. ⁣⁠⁣⁠

Trust me, I know this is one of those easier-said-than-done things. I have to work on it constantly. I’ve definitely gotten better at it, but it still takes a lot of practice to train my brain to think differently and stop the negative self-talk.⁣⁠⁣⁠

What are you telling yourself? Pay attention and adjust as needed.⁣

⁠⁣⁠TRY THIS:⁣⁠

If you want to try an exercise to help you change those negative thoughts into more positive ones, my partner, Mental Health America has a great worksheet to walk you through how to do just that. Get it here.

Why God brought my journey to Maui

"Why have you brought me here?" ⁣⁠⁣⁠I've asked God this question countless times over the past three and a half years since we moved to Maui.⁣⁠⁣⁠This island is beautiful, there's no doubt about it. My journey here, though, has been filled with triggers, trauma, and loneliness.⁣⁠⁣⁠But I've finally figured out why I'm here.⁣⁠⁣⁠To heal.⁣⁠⁣⁠From old and new distress. From physical illnesses I've been carrying for decades.⁣⁠⁣⁠And the aching loneliness? That's a gift. To make me sit in silence and deeply connect to my heart, my mind, my body.⁣⁠⁣⁠I believe that our move to Maui has been filled with endless chaos on purpose.⁣⁠⁣⁠It's forcing me to work through old trauma I'd buried down deep for decades. New hurt is teaching me to let go. And the physical pain is showing me how connected healing the body and mind really are. ⁣⁠⁣⁠I saw a quote the day I began my treatment for Meniere's disease, and think it speaks to my overall journey here:⁣⁠⁣⁠"This place where you are right now, God circled on a map for you." ~ Hafiz⁣⁠⁣⁠Thank you, Maui. I've tried to push you away, but now know how much I've needed you.⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠⁣⁠#ichoosebeauty #MentalHealthMonday #healingjourney #healingtools #healingtrauma #healinglight #healingyourself #healingfromwithin #healingpower #hearthealing #trustyourjourney #trusttheuniverse #trustgodsplan #trusttheprocess #chronicpainlife #menieresdisease #recoveryjourney #injuryrecovery #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthjourney #mentalwellness #mentaltraining #wordsofencouragement #mauihawaii #mauilove

You deserve to feel good again – World Mental Health Day

A reminder on this World Mental Health Day – You deserve to feel good again.

I’ve been in that place where I hated so many things about my life and myself. I was constantly beating myself up, and I thought I deserved to feel bad. No way did I think I deserved to feel good ever again… but of course I did! And so do you.

I’ve said it before, and I will keep saying it again and again – therapy saved my life. I will keep sharing my journey because I want it to be normal to talk about mental health, and for you to feel comfortable to get help if you need it.

A great first step is to take a free online screening that my partner, Mental Health America offers. It’s one of the quickest and easiest ways to determine whether you’re experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition, like depression or anxiety. These conditions are real, common and treatable. And recovery is possible.

You deserve to feel good again.
