Autoimmune Win 🏆
.
At the age of 29 I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease. I would have never thought 10 years later I would be diagnosed with Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adulthood, LADA for short, a subsection of type 1 diabetes
.
The ride has been a surprise around every corner. A life with an autoimmune condition is a life with constant uncertainty. Keeps an activated nervous system in tip top condition 😉
.
In the spirit of Mental Health Awareness month, taking care of my physical health is absolutely a support to healthy mental health. So, today I got my @omnipod
.
I’m so excited to be able to stop multiple daily injections, have more blood glucose and insulin control and hopefully allow my nervous system some rest
.
Thank you all who have supported this journey including my husband & family, therapist, great friends and the medical team @utswmed Dr.Abreu, Nancy, and everyone at the Endocrine Subspecialties Clinic. Today we celebrate 💚

The reality of Mother’s Day is that it’s all not celebrated the same way
.
For me Mother’s Day has traditionally been a complicated experience. And when my mom died when I was 24 it really shed a new light on how mother’s days are celebrated
.
Being a middle aged woman with no children of my own has also illuminated the interesting intricacies of Mother’s Day. I generally try to avoid going out in public on Mother’s Day as its so awkward to get the “Happy Mother’s Day” wishes from strangers. Not sure what to do them but I accept the loving wishes with gratitude
.
I am so appreciative of my own mother, my wonderful girlfriends who show up for me like a mother and most importantly my own inner mother who loves me unconditionally
.
Today I hold space for all the experiences. All my love 💚

Take a look at what I have been up to.
I had the pleasure of meeting @color_by_cris at a retreat we went on last summer. Before I met her I had not had my hair attended to in YEARS. I trust her and the other colorist and stylist @hattie.m.wariner at Scene immensely. You want to know why? Because Cris has created a Solon that focus on the Client by caring for the staff. If you are a colorist, stylist wanting a positive working environment, supporting continued learning and personal wellness Scene salon is where it’s at. Thanks for all you do in supporting my self care. #colorist #stylist #haircare #dallassalon #dallascolorist #dallsstylist #dallasbeauty #dallasselfcare #dallashairstylist #ilovemysalon #hairwellness

You are worthy PERIOD ♥️
.
Worthiness is a birthright. Simply because you are alive is the only evidence needed to validate that YOU ARE WORTHY
.
At a young age we begin to attach our worthiness based on the attachments that are created with our caregivers. Their praise and feedback of our accomplishments validates our existence and we develop a false belief that our worthiness lies in others hands
.
The problem is our little bodies aren’t able to take into to account the trauma, pain and unprocessed wounds that impact our caregivers ability to demonstrate the full range of openness and love toward us.
.
Their struggle to understand you, see your pain, respond with compassion and kindness IS NOT YOUR FULT and has no meaning or ties to your worth
.
Lean how to break though these conditioned patterns and develop a loving relationship with yourself
.
You’re WORTH it 💚

I struggle with consistency and I always thought it was because I was easily bored. When I allowed myself to embody my boredom I notice that I’m not bored but uncomfortable 🥴
.
Ok discomfort I see you now. But I want you know it’s ok. I can take care of us. We can try new things and change up old patterns so we can move into our authenticity together
.
All my love 💚

It’s not how far you get. It’s how you feel while going
.
In the beginning my yoga practice was a path of ascension. To be better than what I was. This thinking required me to abandon myself and strive to be an idea of what I “should” be
.
What I have come to learn (which is a journey all of its own) is that I am already enough. How I move is enough. How far I go is enough
.
The intention now is to be with all of me. To show up for me. To listen to me. Because no one will ever care for me the way I need better than me
.
So when I practice yoga or any movement, I bring awareness to how I feel. I move for me, not how I should move or to please others but how my body asks me to move.
.
All my love from a recovering ❤️‍🩹 collegiate athlete

Im trying to hard. I can tell because stress invades my body. For me trying is an attempt to force or push. Tonight I’m listening to great spirit as she guides me to inner peace. This is her message. All my love 💕.

Friend, Foe, Frenemy?
.
How would I describe the relationship I have with pain? Before I started a self healing journey I would have replied with, “it’s complicated”
.
Jump forward to my future self and now I can confidently tell you that my relationship with pain is friendly. Not BFF but friendly, we acknowledge one another and have a conscious relationship. So no more avoiding, minimizing and icing out pain
.
Because the truth is pain is a part of my human experience and avoiding, minimizing and pretending it’s not real is essentially denying a part of myself
.
If I truly want to learn how to love myself and have a happy life. I have to be open to seeing all parts 💕
