11/12/18 (Meme from: @mhm.zip😬) 10:04 P.M. Mood: warm. Thoughts: Man, whenever it starts to feel like I’m screaming into a void, you beautiful people always reach out to show me that others understand. I appreciate everyone who likes, comments, and DMs for being so supportive.💕 That’s like a TROPHY to me. ✨ Also, I relate so hard to this meme. I can remember once, when I first started on this new medicine, I told my bf, “Hey, I made it through the day so far without crying! Maybe it’s finally working!😃”. Either the same evening or the next day, I had another episode, lol. It’s an uphill battle, but I’ll keep trying to maintain the momentum.

Have the courage to share your heart and generosity with others. The world needs more of that. #DiscoverYourLight⠀ ⠀ #TheLightHouse #lighthouseasrabia #TLH #courage #generosity #heart #mentalhealth #psychology #Dubai

Our new favorite things to say with each other are: I am beautiful I am strong I am courageous I am a leader I am loved I am a child of God. 🖤 Her face when she’s done chanting this a few times is precious! I also have Benny say these because his self care is just as important! Growing them strong so maybe when waters are tested later on they’ll be able to hop over the obstacles easier than I once was.. 💋 #selflovefirst #selfworthiness #growingmytribe #futuregeneration #beleaders #pandasmom #pandasdisorder #findthejoyintheordinary #momlifebelike #getfaithfullyfit #brokenbeforebeautiful #knowledgeispower #fightingmybattles #faithoverfear #anxietyfighter #mentalhealthwarrior #edrecovery

I remember when I was my own biggest bully. I hated my ears, teeth, smile, skin, hair, eyes, etc. I couldn’t even look at myself naked in a mirror. ⠀ ⠀ When you invest so much time into being your #1 bully, you don’t have time to be your own best friend. Not to mention, you lean on every other person to know your worth, how beautiful you are, how smart you are, and how capable you are at succeeding in life. ⠀ ⠀ So how do you flip it? How do you start building confidence, feeling amazing, and stepping into #1 best friend mode?⠀ ⠀ Start changing your language! Rewrite the way you talk TO yourself, ABOUT yourself by using MANTRAS. It was where I started on my journey to beat the B.A.D. (bipolar, anxiety, & depression).⠀ ⠀ It was such a game changer that I created a FREE guide for you with 50 powerful mantras to choose from, and organized into categories to help you find the best ones for YOU.⠀ ⠀ Head to the link in my bio for your free guide!⠀

Do you think this statement is true? Why or why not? I recently saw “A Star is Born”...I know I’m late to the party, but incredible film...& it really reignited a personal interest I’ve had the last few years...to get at the root of the INTERSECTION of mental illness (particularly co-occurring disorders), addiction & suicide proclivity. Which comes first? And WHY?? Or are they all born out of the same issues & just appear to us at different times in different forms...surprising & overwhelming us like a game of WACK-A-MOLE?! Are these diseases & disorders INEVITABLE or what is their recipe? Are nature AND nurture both at work?? Is it brain chemistry &/or pain or BOTH? What is it out of these issues & illnesses that EXTINGUISHES ONE’S WILL TO LIVE?? There are many opinions out there, but still so many questions too.... What do YOU think?? I’d love to put together a discussion group on this topic at some point if there’s interest?. . . #Repost @bipolardepressionpower ・・・ Mental health - We need to ask OURSELVES what is leading us to cover our pain with FOOD, DRUGS, SEX, SELF HARM & DRINKING.

Today I wanted to share a bit more about me and my story! 🌈👇⁣ ⁣ I worked in the corporate advertising industry for 7 years where I fell into a cycle of work related anxiety and depression. 😒⁣ ⁣ If you asked my family, they will talk about me being snappy, having little patience, complaining all the time and being overly exhausted and drained.🤬⁣ ⁣ If you ask people I worked with, some will question you. Nadia - depressed because of work? She is always smiling, happy and kind. Yeap because I did not let it show. I complained a lot to those I became friends with, but I still kept up a pretty damn good front. 😬⁣ ⁣ All the things that make a toxic work environment, I’ve experienced them.😔⁣ All the feelings that come with that, I have felt them. 🤯⁣ ⁣ It has given me an in-depth perspective when it comes to understanding the fear and internal struggle women in this same situation go through.🙌🏽⁣ ⁣ Do I regret my 7 years in the industry? Not AT ALL! I learned a shit load and met some amazing people along the way, some who I still call friends today, and I am so grateful for that. 💕⁣ ⁣ But looking back I do wish I had someone to help me navigate my toxic work environment and empower me to take action sooner. 🙏🏽⁣ ⁣ Someone to help me realize that this “security” I felt was false security. ❌⁣ ⁣ And that this steady pay cheque, that there are spending&saving strategies you can put in place to create an exit plan for yourself.💸⁣ ⁣ This is why I decided to start a Career Strategy and Coaching business where: ⁣ 🌈I help women who rely on a steady pay cheque, rediscover that spark and put together an exit strategy to get them unstuck from their toxic work environment.🌈⁣ ⁣ I was able to unfuhk my career, and you can do the same. It won’t be easy, I promise that. But oh it will be worth it! 🙌🏽⁣ ⁣ PS. Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing more about a program launch called ‘The Get Unstuck Program’ so stay tuned!🦄 If you want to get in before my formal launch - click the link in my bio to apply for the pre-launch program!🦄⁣ *⁣ *⁣ *⁣ Got questions? Comment below or DM me!👇⁣

Yeah. Pretty much how I feel everyday. This last several days have been really bad. I’m trying to find the sunshine in each day but I’m so exhausted. Today I slept for 3 hours and I’m wanting to go back to sleep. But I can’t. And I shouldn’t. My med check went ok. No change in meds but my dr did lower my dose of Valium. I can now only take 1 tablet twice a day. She thinks my anxiety is worse cause of withdrawals from the valium. Honestly I can’t tell. They’re the same no matter what. Also my appetite has been off. I only ate a little bit of dinner and no lunch or breakfast. Everything thing tastes off or I’m just not hungry. Do you think I should tell my dr this now or wait till my next appointment? Anywho, I’m trying to get myself out of this rut. Someone wanna help me? LOL tell me a funny joke or tell me how you’re doing. I’m always willing to help others. . . . #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #depressionrelief #stopthestigmamentalillness #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthwarrior #depression #ocd #bipolar #anxiety #panicattacks #love #aloha #help #kokua

#Repost @thelotusfire with @get_repost ・・・ Repressed memories. Moments I locked away in order to survive. My first one came up about 9 years ago and it’s been a tumultuous journey. This past year I’ve unlocked more than I ever wanted to know. Forgotten memories have come into my conscious while I breastfeed my baby, take a shower or chat to my husband, @humanbeingman. A raucous orchestra of emotions. Confusion, pain, adrenaline, shame and ancient woundings pump through my body. I’m a warrior. I’m a survivor. I already made it through the worst of it yet somehow in a moment I’m back. I feel frozen and like I may not survive. My inner child takes over. She’s caught in life or death battles. She’s absolutely terrified. She feels like she’s literally dying. She feels like dying would be easier than living. She wants me to numb any and all ways. She hates herself with everything she’s got so she doesn’t have to feel the feelings of being powerless over the adults in her life. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to not know the answers. It’s okay to fall to pieces. It’s okay feel afraid. It’s okay to numb the pain. It’s all welcome here. 🖤

Today I had such an amazing day. It started off with me making a food that doesnt even come from my country, but I think it turned out great, & it made feel accomplished. & ended with, such beautiful positivity, I cant tell u how fulfilled Im feeling. It was the best day. Im so grateful for these moments, because, I can suffer some pretty harsh ones, so when I say Im having a good day, its because I am, I share my bad ones enough on this page, so why not good ones. Side note, I had a ? Ever miss certain foods, from old relationships, u were in, just not the relationship??? Like in this picture here, this is dhal, I actually learned how to cook it, so that if we ever broke up, I wldnt need my ex husband to do it for me, I just wished I learned my ex wife lasagna, & my older kids father chicken wings.... man Ill never forget those food. Im such a fat [email protected]$ 🤣🤣🤣🤣😔.♏ #greatday #gratitude #appreciationpost #blessed #evolution #enlightenment #happiness #joy #food #dhal #pakistan #pakistani #pakistanifood #greedylady #proudfatgirl #foodlover #domesticviolencesurvivor #mentalhealthwarrior

I would fantasize about dying but having the ability to see if anybody would care. Not anymore because I’m happy with my life now🌹 - [Verse 1] I am happy to be alive Cause I know I could not be in a place thats filled with lies Cant stand no quiet nights, while I fill up my glass with pride Hopeful is all I know, how to keep me from silent cries Nothing I can say Facing all this pain in my way I fight it every day Why am I this way? A n**** tryna maintain I sit and tell myself, Okay We gotta find another way You gotta find another way You gotta find another way

25 days of gratitude // day 12 i am passionate about removing the stigma around mental health, which is one of the reasons why I talk about my own personal journey with depression, anxiety and postpartum so openly. in tandem I also want to remove the stigma associated with taking medication, which is what I am sharing my gratitude for today. i have been taking medication for my mental health struggles for nearly half my life. it’s not an exact science, and I’ve taken many different kinds and doses over the years in an effort to find my secret sauce. it requires trial and error, and comes at a risk of side effects and also a risk of not helping. and just as my body make up changes over time so can how I react to these medications, so it is a continual process. just recently my psychiatrist and I made a small tweak that so far seems to have made a significant difference, and greatly improved my daily life. and there are really no words to tell you how game changing that is. medication isn’t a magic fix, I don’t expect it to make my anxiety or depression just go away. but it creates a more level playing field for me to have the capacity to use the tools I’ve learned, it helps decrease this major barrier to just existing in the world some days and allows me to have less extreme ups and downs. I’m grateful for the ability to have access to medication and to have come so far in finding my secret sauce that makes my struggles much more manageable. days like today, with Connor being home again not feeling well, could have been a lot tougher to manage without it. like a lot tougher. I have no shame in taking medication, and I don’t believe anyone else should either. if interested, please check out a post on this topic I shared on my blog last year. if you are struggling please know you are not alone. . . . . . #25daysofgratitude #emmas25daysofgratitude2018 #medicatedandmighty #mentalhealthawareness

Grief As A Millennial: Year (1) vs Year (2) : My 1st year with grief had me convinced I was doing OK. I had gone back to work two weeks after my dad died & completed my final year of my bachelors degree. : : With very few moments of emotional release and constantly being in overdrive... I was moving through the motions of life and just getting shit done. Confusing numbness with being functional. : : Near the end of Year 1, graduation had arrived and I decided to take time off. Traveling half way across the world where I was free of all memories that could possibly haunt me, or so I thought. : : I can’t say I instantly faced grief as that would imply I had the intention of processing what losing my dad meant. *Instead, I more so feared breaking down and spiraling to the point of never recovering.* : : But in the stillness that was now my life, year 2 forced me to look grief in the eye...translating into everything absolutely everything causing me to break down. : : All I had avoided from the past year surfacing: 1️⃣ I hated that I felt so alone with no one to really understand 2️⃣ I longed for my old life more than ever 3️⃣ I resented that the world was moving on without him Admitting all of the above is far from easy as it makes life without our person so real. But it also reminds us to give ourselves a ton of grace. Letting our feelings flow, is us doing our best...it’s still us making progress.💛 : : : : #healing #grief #griefsupport #wellnessjourney #death #wellnesscommunity #wholeheartedliving #livethelittlethings #bestillandknow #embracingaslowerlife #womenempoweringwomen #findyourtribe #youarenotalone #mindsetiseverything #mentalhealthwarrior #emotionalsupport #positiveaffirmations #weareone #imawarrior #deathofaparent #griefsucks #grievingoutloud #healingquotes #bereavement #healingjourney #grieving #adulting #imissyousomuchithurts #onedayatatime #community

Happy Alive Day. One year on and Im happy to be here. I looked back through my photos of this year and surprised myself when I realised that despite it being one of the worst and one of the hardest years of my life Ive had happy times too. Those happy times are down to the people whove supported me. Theres too many to show in a collage that only allows me 6 pics but without them all I wouldnt have made it. So if youre struggling if youre utterly exhausted and just want peace hold on. Find someone wholl listen and tell them all the scary thoughts inside your head and trust that they will pass. Stay safe. In the UK the Samaritans free number is 116123. From my own experience Ive found them to be wonderful listeners who have made me feel heard and understood when Ive been in crisis. #staysafe #holdon #itsokaytotalk #suicideawareness #samaritans #oneyear #supportteam #mentalhealthwarrior

Just because youre not as pretty as someone else, doesnt make you anything less. Everyone has a different idea of pretty or cute. After all, some people prefer dogs over cats. Or black hair over blonde. Facial hair over none. Daisies over roses. The point is, you might not being someones ideal of pretty. But YOU ARE PRETTY. To someone you will be what they find cute or pretty. Just like how Christmas lights are pretty. And the stars are pretty. And the ocean is pretty. None of them are the same, but each person out there finds something different pretty. Everyone has their own ideas of it. Which means you are pretty. And talented. As cute. And perfect.

Never forget. How far youve come. Everything you have gotten through. All the times you have pushed on even when you felt you couldnt. All the mornings you got out of bed no matter how hard it was. All the times you wanted to give up but you got through another day. Never forget how much strength you have learned and developed. I know it’s the holidays. I know there is a certain expectation to be jolly and bright. But I also know that it’s okay, either way. Holidays or not, you are here… thriving - getting up each day and - showing up. That’s all that matters. You don’t have to act a certain way. Just be, the way you are right now. Whatever it is you’re feeling and no matter what you’re going through, just keep going. Keep showing up and never forget, how far you have come. xo

Never allow waiting to become a habit. Make yourself a priority and treat your body well. Life is happening TODAY! #BELIEVE in yourself! And no matter what you are doing that brings you that joy, dont ever stop doing your thing. If you keep waiting for the perfect time, you will be waiting the rest of your life. Leg day workout √🤣

It’s rest day so that means time for comfy pajamas and more personal development! If you don’t know what PD is it basically is just something that helps you improve your life like a self help book. I love PD books that help me plan out my goals and set me on the right path to achieve them! What’s your favorite PD book?

Day 16: I am always all smiles after pool running. Something about being with other females running across a pool really brightens my soul . .

Tomorrow I have a webinar with @coachjenrulon about starting my own running business- SHUT UP, right?! I am going to make sure I put in a 5 mile run tomorrow with some yoga . .

I love Christmas 🎄❤ It has always had a calming spirit for me. For the last few years, that has meant taking my anxiety from a 10 to an 8 for a few days. But this year is different. This year - I feel truly present. 🎁 Every day, I show up for my health and for my business helping women do the same, and every day, I give myself a little more peace. 🕊 I am right where I am meant to be ❤ #fitbravefree

I was going to go out for dinner tonight but decided to listen to what I wanted. I’ve been craving this roasted cauliflower salad with cranberries and almonds in a honey mustard herby vinaigrette. So delicious that I made a triple batch to last me a few days. I’m happy I chose to eat in because it’s more cost effective, I enjoy being creative in the kitchen, I get to adjust recipes to tailor what I’m craving, and I get to be in the comfort of my own home. What can top that? Oh, and screw dishes- I’ve got the dishwasher running. What did y’all do for yourselves today? Comment below! 👇👇👇 —————- #roastedcauliflowersalad #adventchallenge #selfloveadventchallenge2018 @iammelwells @theselflovesummit

I AM YOU!⁣ Do you ever feel like you are being thrown between 2 punching bags? ⁣⁣⁣ You want to get Healthy but don’t know where or how to start ➡️ I know what it was like reading articles on what to do to get in shape but “how” do I actually do it was like 😫⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ You want to eat better but you don’t want to give up Taco Tuesday ➡️ I promise you I’ve been through the strict dieting only eating 6 Foods and that is NOT the answer⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ You have bags under your eyes due to your anxiety ➡️ I know. I go to sleep every night wondering if I’m doing enough, the right thing, and the best things to bring value to you all.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ You look down and your belt is fitting a little tighter. You don’t like what you see. Where did the “hot stuff” teenager body I had in high school go?➡️ I know. Well sorta. I was the farthest thing away from hot stuff in school, but I know what it feels like to look in the mirror and be unconfident and insecure.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ You wonder how to balance life, work, while still making time for your health ➡️ I know. Some people you see on social media aren’t working full time jobs, or either work limited hours, so yeah they have more time than you. ⁣⁣I found a solution.⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ You want to hit up that chick fila drive thru for breakfast➡️ I know. That used to be my go to every morning. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ You want to go out for beer or wine after work with the crew. You just want to wind down after a hard days work ➡️ I know. I struggle with this everyday. I’d rather Netflix it up, order an XL from dominos, or go catch up on some 2k19. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ We all struggle. You are not alone. I guarantee most of you have already been in better shape than I have the most of my life. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ The only thing different between me and you is I made the choice to start. To trade in my excuses for “I am able and get to.” I traded in Netflix for zoom calls. I traded in my donut holes and Frappuccino for a morning smoothie.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ I have the simple solution if you’re struggling. It’s not going to be big changes overnight. It’s not going to be a quick fix. But I guarantee we will make the changes together and you will feel so much better guaranteed. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ What do you struggle with?⁣⁣ ⁣

I know it’s going to be a shit show the first few times I do the moves, but let me tell you, that’s not going to prevent me from committing and getting it done! I know I’ll improve as the program goes on, and I’ll have an amazing group of people doing it with me. Why not you? Are you ready for a new challenge in 2019? There are programs for every body, and we can figure out what will work best for you and your goals. Hundreds of workouts at your finger tips, nutritional guidance, meal plans, accountability, motivation and a 30 day supply of some damn good superfoods!

Ok now I am gonna go to bed after this post frfr. I just want to say that some of us endure the most horrific experiences that should have taken us out an luckily we stand tall.

☠️double trouble ☠️

I was live streaming earlier, and it bugs me how there’s SO much controversy around the YouTuber Forbes list. I can’t help but think, “who cares?”. We SHOULD know by now that money does not equal happiness and/or #mentalhealth 🙌 so I want to do this video for a fun, end of year video, and then maybe at the end of 2019 do the most mentally healthy YouTubers list.

Because sometimes you just need a bit of cute in your life. And I’m on bedrest (superwoman’s been taking over and I’m losing time - not a safe state so I have to limit activity)... so here’s some kitties. They remind my of my kitty - kitties do the best poses and they help with pain too. Their purr has been demonstrated to vibrate at a frequency that promotes healing of soft tissues. Isn’t that cool. So, my tummy hurts. A lot. I’ve been having agonising stomach cramps for about 5 days now. And cuddling Stinky (my cat) really helps with the pain. Partly cos he’s warm, but maybe also partly because he purrs me better!!! Although, I’m less keen on the gift he thought might help (because it was a dead mouse 🥴). Cuddles from little Bimbickles who like to sit on me also help - she’s a great hot water bottle! . . . #cats #cute #pain #painrelief #littlebundleofjoy #catposes #thespacebetweenthings #mylifeasart #becomingtilly #traumafocusedtherapy #traumainformedtreatement #BPD #CPTSD #dissociativeidentitydisorder #Mentalhealthawareness #MentalHealthWarrior #mentalhealthmatters #traumasurvivor #abusesurvivor #mystoryisntover #mentalhealthrecovery #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #psychology #endthestigma

At long last.... NEW BLOG POST! Link in bio 😘 #nosuchnormal

Morning all! Tough night but getting through. Feeling really lethargic, but not in a sleepy way sadly, I could use sleep after last night! Pain is radiating today and I really just want to curl up and crash, but need to be up and about for at least for a few hours waiting for the shopping... adulting is hard, I dont like it. At least I can adult at home today, tomorrow involves going out, but it feels good for it being a Friday again, finally. Ive missed Fridays lol... . Day 13: One thing I love about my diy beauty advent, is I can collect a whole lot of items I wanna try, and trying out the different items keeps me going for a few months. Primers, setting sprays, sprays that are both lol! Such as, @smashboxcosmetics Photo Finish Primer Water, that both prime and preps, along with set and refresh! Will have to try this tomorrow! . Another @hourglasscosmetics Lippie, though its in the same case as the last one, I love the interchangeable case! They are also functional without the case, just slip the thin black tube out of the case if you dont want to carry the whole thing around. Shade is At Night . Now, the last item, I was both interested and wary of. I havent had the best experiences with @maccosmetics while one of my besties sent a lipstick of their my way and I love the feel, other times Ive used this brand, it hasnt gone so well. Ive have some iffy reactions, one of which has led to ongoing breakouts around my lips which frustrate me so much. Still, I got this and decided to try it out. Strobe Cream, basically its a glowy moisturizer, some use it as a primer, or on its own, or mixed with their foundation! Since Im having a good skin morning, I decided to give it a try on its own, and it feels silky smooth on my skin. Well see how it goes through the day! . The selfie added, using the Strobe Cream, and the lippie I got today! . #adventcalender #diyadvent #beautyadvent #dailychallenge #mentalhealthwarrior #everydayfocus #alwayskeepgoing #makeup #skincare #beauty #sample #mini #itsthattimeofyear #thattimeofyear #merrychristmas #happyholiday #smashboxcosmetics #hourglasscosmetics #maccosmetics

First anxiety attack Ive had in a looooonnnnnnggggg time. Im no longer used to them, so its pretty debilitating. And isnt that sad to hear? That I used to be able to function perfectly fine through them because it was an every day, every hour occurrence? It was normal life. Im glad now to say was and no longer is. Im not the only one, so many individuals out there have the same problem and its a rough way to live. Not only do I struggle with depression and anxiety, but I am also a Highly Sensitive Person; which is actually a clinical term. Being an HSP is a catalyst for my depression and anxiety, always feeling too much, often feeling like a curse. I think it is also a factor of my introversion. On another note, Baxter Boy jumped right into work trying to calm me down. I love him. #firefly #fireflymindandbody #fireflies #embraceyourbeaconoflight #glowwithme #womenempowerment #strongwoman #strongwomen #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthrecovery #selfdiscovery #selfconfidence #confidence #confident #depression #anxiety #ptsd #anxietyattack #highlysensitiveperson #servicedog #serviceanimal #exhausted #drained #introvert #recharge #loveyourself #selflove #selfcare
