Father’s Day can be a rough day for many. As many of us grew up without a father figure. And because of it, many identify themselves as fatherless, blame themselves when their dads abandon them, and are more likely to have low self-esteem, struggle with addictions, eating disorders, suffer with depression, anxiety, troubled relationships, poor self-esteem, and an inability to trust. Many feel an intense lacking in their life and try to fill it up with food, drugs, alcohol, and or a series of lovers.
I know all to well what it’s like to feel abandoned and unloved. As I will never forget the day I sat up in my bed crying for my dad, while not quite understanding why I was even doing so. All I knew at the moment is that wanted my dad. The void I felt inside led me to searching for love in others and wanting to settle down at a very young age. To not loving myself or knowing my worth. My thought was, “If my dad doesn’t love me then why would anyone else?” Whether your dad left, never looked back, divorced your mom and just saw you twice a month, or stayed in the house but was emotionally detached, you may have grown up struggling with a profound sense of rejection. You probably felt tossed aside and blamed youselves as kids typically do and even thought: “If only I were smarter, prettier, nicer, tougher, or more athletic, Dad would have loved me and stayed.” Most likely, nobody around took the time to explain how our father was damaged and how their absence wasn't our fault. Nobody told us that one piece of information we so desperately needed to hear: when his absence had everything to do with him and nothing to do with us.
Understand that your dad's neglect doesn't define who you are. Let go the silent burden and conquer the war to what keeps you from experiencing all the joys that life has to offer so you can soar above these pitfalls. The same way that I have... 🦅
🦅 • Examine How Your Dad's Rejection Impacted Your Life
• Deal with the emotional baggage
• Reclaim Your Power
• Heal (mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually)
• Surround yourself with positive male role models
Ignite your inner soarrior!
HFD to all the Fathers!
A Story of Act of Kindness *Be the umbrella* - by Zeleen Thum “One day, I was on my way to school. After alighting at the bus station, students will have to walk an unsheltered distance before reaching the school.
It was pouring that day. I fished out the green umbrella from my school bag, opened it up and stepped out into the rain. Then, I noticed a student walking in front of me, braving the rain. I remembered hesitating for a moment before running up to her and moving my umbrella over her head. I will never forget the smile she sent my way when she looked up.
Let’s make happiness about the size of our hearts and show our gratitude for having an umbrella by sharing it with others who need it too.
There is room for more under my umbrella, is there any more room under yours?” What’s your act of kindness? Why not start by making a donation, so a child can smile on their way to school?

I hope your Sunday held some some stillness, was full of light, and restored you for the week ahead. ✨ If not, it’s not too late. Run a bath. Turn on some spa music. Meditate. Breathe. Annoint your pulse points with essential oils. ✨Whatever self care looks like for you, make time to do it. ✨
RELEASE WHO YOU WERE & RISE INTO WHO YOU TRULY ARE
A cold hard truth someone had forgotten to tell me: you cannot carry with you the shit that doesn’t align with who you want to become.
You know exactly what I’m talking about.
Those thoughts in your head that tell you you’re not good enough and could never be, do, or have the deepest desires in your heart.
The self sabotaging habits such as procrastinating, scrolling on your phone, eating like garbage, or your scarcity money mindset that has kept you broke.
The toxic relationship that you’ve stayed in because it’s “comfortable” and you see their potential - you believe they’ll change.
The friendships that are based on gossiping or going out and partying that leave you hungover all day on Sunday.
Hint: these were all me and all parts I decided to go full force into releasing.
This not only can be, but WILL BE you when you CHOOSE YOURSELF.
Choose to shift your mindset into the limitless possibilities that TRULY await you.
Choose to create healthier habits, block schedule your time, eat more fruits and veggies, and see the abundance that is all around you.
Choose to know you’re deserving of real love. What you’re seeking is seeking you. Choose to WAIT for it and work on yourself.
Choose to surround yourself with supportive, like minded people who want to uplevel with you and see you WIN. Who hold you at your highest self.
Choosing to release all of the people, places, things, thoughts, habits will show you what’s truly possible for you.
I am here to love you through the process and remind you of the best version of yourself, but YOU have to DECIDE and make that decision every single day.
This was the best decision I ever made in my life. And this decision is waiting for YOU.
BE HER NOW is my 8 week group coaching program where you will be releasing your former identity and self sabotaging habits through the process of reinvention.
Choose yourself and all that’s possible for you. Start today. Application is in the link in my bio.
CHOOSE to BE HER NOW 💎
“You look happy.” She said.
“Like the REAL kind of happy. Like it’s radiating out from inside of you.” She continued.
I smiled bigger. “I am. I really am!”
“What’s changed?” She asked.
“I remembered my worthiness.” I replied.
I remembered that love is truth.
That me receiving what I truly desire in my heart and soul is what’s real.
I remembered that I don’t have to work so hard, push and strive. That the Universe is working overtime on my behalf.
I remembered the power of my thought and that I can direct my mind towards anything and everything that I want.
I remembered what my soul always knew when I came here to Earth and into a body.
It has been a journey and a freaking half to arrive at this place inside myself. I could write 8 books on it. For now you can start by reading me first book, Self Approved (link in my bio to order off Amazon).
