inr-pce asked: Once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly, and then send it to ten of your favorite followers ♥


Answer:

oooh what a delightful message to receive in my inbox! Here are 5 nice things I cherish about myself:

  1.   I put myself first.  My mental sanity and inner peace are the most important aspects of my life. Food, water, exercise and sleep come first, everything else is a reward for meeting basic requirements.
  2. I’ve learned to stop being so strict with myself. As wonderful as it is to have morals and values to live by, it can be stress inducing to have to follow them to a tee. I’m starting to cut myself some slack; if I’m comfortable and my heart is saying “yes”, then I’m going to do it, without guilt tripping myself.
  3. I am dedicated to being healthy. After years of eating disorders and abusing my body, I’m learning to appreciate my body in every form. I’ve committed myself to finding a diet and lifestyle that works for me. I am no longer afraid to admit when I’m not making healthy choices or when something isn’t working; change is essential for making improvements.
  4. I love to challenge myself, in every way possible, to be comfortable with who I am. No makeup challenge. No hair product challenege. No bra challenge. No shaving. You name it, I’ve pretty much tried it at this point. Turns out, life is way simpler and I’m way happier when I focus on things that are important to me. No more insecurity from forgetting to pluck my eyebrows and having a semi-unibrow for a few days.
  5. My ability to find beauty and miracles surrounding me. Whether it’s the sound of squirrels playing in the trees or a magnificent sunset juxtaposed with a rising waxing moon, I appreciate the bountiful blessings the Universe has provided to me. In turn, this helps me achieve a higher vibrational state.

Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.

Stand up, speak out.

If you want to change the world love a man, really love him. Choose the one whose soul calls to yours clearly who sees you; who is brave enough to be afraid. Accept his hand and guide him gently to your heart’s blood where he can feel your warmth upon him and rest there. Burn his heavy load in your fires. Look into his eyes, look deep within and see what lies dormant or awake or shy or expectant there. Look into his eyes and see there his fathers and grandfathers and all the wars and madness their spirits fought in some distant land, some distant time. Look upon their pains and struggles and torments and guilt; without judgment. And let it all go. Feel into his ancestral burden and know that what he seeks is safe refuge in you. Let him melt in your steady gaze and know that you need not mirror that rage because you have a womb, a sweet, deep gateway to wash and renew old wounds.

Mornin’ all you blessed crittahs. Here’s a challenge for you for the day… what are 3 things you are grateful for today? Think about it, share it, and FEEL it with your whole being. Here is what I’m feeling especially grateful for today

1. A life partner who provides tremendous support and encouragement to embrace my uniqueness, beauty and god-given talents.

3. BODY AWARENESS. Hello non-fertile cervical fluid, nice to see you again! 

Sending y’all biiiiiig love & blessings

okay please don’t be weird about this but i’m thinking of making the switch to cloth menstrual pads to help reduce my carbon footprint. does anyone have any experience with this or advice about it? if so please let me know!

followers, please help this person out, if you can!

also, OP, feel free check the cloth pad tag on my blog: http://menstrualblog.tumblr.com/tagged/cloth-pads

menstrual cup all the way! I love my cloth pads, but they’re honestly a considerable amount of work…combining with the cup makes for a perfect match :)
