No matter what you do, no matter how best you think you already gave, it wouldn’t be enough for some people. So why worry? Just do what makes you happy as long as you are not stepping on someone’s shoes ;) #julita#motivation#selflove
“I think I
L I K E
B E C O M I N G!” It’s so easy to criticize others when they don’t recognize our worth or acknowledge our effort, but yet we never give that to ourselves. Let’s not even get started about the conversations we have with ourselves in front of the mirror, at the gym, trying on clothes! 🙈
Everything starts with self and to neglect your own worth, not give yourself enough respect and especially love, results in low self esteem, lack of motivation toward personal goals and even hinders all the relationships around you.
What if I told you that the feelings you are after via other’s support and acceptance are already inside you and you can generate for yourself?! What if I told you that loving yourself will make your eyes sparkle just as much as if responding to another’s love!
What if accepting yourself in front of the mirror will boost your confidence just as much if not more, than hearing it from someone else?
What if all the good feelings are just on the other side of you actually LIKING who you are and who you are constantly becoming?!

I almost cry, my stomach turns when I read about women planning breast augmentation surgery.
Yes I've been there, been in that place when I needed all my body parts to pop... my butt, my boobs, my thighs, my abs and my self-esteem!! Your only concern at the time is how often these life long devices will need to be replaced? Did I mention life long 🤔🤔🤔 Will I go bigger than they suggest, when will I be able to work out again soon, oh my gosh clothes will look amazing, I'm going to be so freaking happy!!! FU#K NO 😣
Happy until you start falling apart, happy until every bone and muscle in your body aches, your depressed, your hair falls out, you develop eating sensitivities and on and on.
Then you question these safe safe devices!!
You question why you needed validation from a foreign object placed inside your body whilst under anaesthesia... why you chose vanity over self-acceptance.
Why you chose societal pressure over not conforming to society's expectations of the freaking perfect body!!!! You question this multi million dollar industry that manipulates our thoughts.
You question why did I not ask all these questions?
Why was I unconscious and trapped in my own less than constructive self talk, self pitty, self doubt??? Questions so many questions that should be asked and aren't because you're so set to fit a mold that society has made for you and millions of other women around you. Sucked into the notion that the outer body if just right brings you internal joy... screw that thought it's bullshit!! Question, question and question some more. 💗💗💗 Who else feels this, has experienced this, asks enough of these questions... share ladies share your stories. Xxx
Y no es sencillo salir cuando parece no haber de donde agarrarnos, cuando parece que no hay nadie que nos acompañe, todo es a su tiempo, pide apoyo, háblalo. Si tu puedes acompaña, no impongas, no tomes las decisiones de nadie, escucha, con empatía sin juicio. Cuando me preguntan que puedo hacer lo primero que les digo es: estar. Hasta donde se puede y como se requiere. El autocuidado al centro, el cuidado y respeto mutuo como eje, el NO como protección y las redes como estrategia. Detecta la violencia a tiempo, no permitas ningún tipo de abuso. Y si lo necesitas sabes que aquí estoy/estamos. Todas merecemos amores bonitos.
🎵 It’s no surprise to me, I am my own worst enemy 🎶
It’s taken me so long to realize that I have literally been my own worst enemy. I have been setting myself up for failure by placing limits on my own potential. I let my failures act as anchors that would hold me back from trying something new, starting over, or even believing in myself.
I used to look at every setback as a stop sign. 🛑
If I gained a few pounds back after trying to eat healthy/if I couldn’t fit into my goal jeans/if I couldn’t see any physical changes in my body, I’d give up on my latest diet craze and let emotinal eating take over for a few days until I decided to “try again on Monday.” Then, I’d feel even worse and push myself even further from my goals.
If I didn’t do well enough on an exam in college after studying my life away for days and weeks, I would spiral into a self-loathing depression-like state where nothing I did was good enough and I didn’t deserve to do anything for fun. I’d punish myself by studying even more and it was madness because I didn’t change how I was studying and my anger at myself would prevent me from retaining anything.
All of those “defining moments” didn’t really define me at all. How I reacted said much more about where I was in my personal journey. The anchors that were holding me back actually could have acted as catalysts or fuel to propel me forward! My mental transformation has been the biggest game changer in my health and fitness journey because my mindset held me down and stole my joy!
The moral of the story? Don’t let your anchors hold you back from becoming who you were meant to be! Those frustrating moments can mold you into the best version of yourself if you learn from the pain and mistakes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am so grateful that found a community that supports me through the good and the ugly moments, the successes and failures, and the struggles and the growth. I only wish I had found my tribe long ago. Give yourself some grace and know that you’re never alone in this. You’re always welcome here. 💜
So much to do and so little time? When life has you feeling a little overwhelmed, try placing one to two drops of Juniper Berry essential oil into the palm of your hand and lightly rub your hands together. Cup your hands over your nose and inhale to help combat stressful feelings. Juniper Berry oil has incredible aromatic benefits that provide a grounding, calming effect, perfect for any busy day.
Create your own freshening spray. Simply combine a couple of drops of Juniper Berry essential oil with water in a spray bottle and use to cleanse any area that needs it. This can be used to freshen the linen cupboard, the mattress, the car, or pop 3-4 drops into a diffuser, to purify the air. Juniper Berry oil has natural cleansing benefits that make it a great essential oil for purifying and freshening.
This is my favourite Juniper Berry diffuser blend; 3 drops Juniper Berry and 4 drops Bergamot. The aromatic fusion enhances positive feelings and creates a calming atmosphere.
Let me know if you’ve tried it 😊
Juniper Berry essential oils is also an awesome natural skin toner and can help reduce the appearance of skin blemishes. To promote a clear and healthy complexion, I like to add one drop of Juniper Berry to a cotton pad with my toner. I actually do this with a few different oils, alternating them every few days. You will love the refreshing look this oil brings to your skin!

Where did my puppy go?! 🐶😩😅
This toy has been long since destroyed😅 but it was SO cute!!
This was at about 3 months old❤️ NOW he is almost 10 months and 75lbs 😅
Beau loves vegetables and is allergic to grains 😅 such a nutritionists dog lol and he also won’t eat just plain kibble unless something more delicious is added to it😅 Definitely my dog! It’s so hilarious to watch their little personalities come through ✨
Pet are NOT always easy 😅 especially when they are babies but the amount of joy they bring to our lives makes it all worth it!!💕
Selfie(s). Growing older can be tough. There are times where I’m like...bring it on. Then there are days that I wonder who I am. Trying to be comfortable in the skin I’m in. If you saw me 2-3 years ago, I felt confident. I was happy with “me”. Then things happened that shook me to my core and I forget who I was. Life is tough. But I believe God has put me through this season of life for a reason...and I hope I figure that out and come out stronger. On the plus side, I had a really good hair day, so there’s that 😉 #onedayatatime#thisisme
Hi, my names *insert douchebag name* & I like to use the loud annoying ass chains on unnecessary shit, like bench press, where I could easily add more plates to instead... I also like to take pictures with them on with a bullshit fitness quote so people know I’m fucking tough 💪🏼🤦🏻♀️😂 #justkidding#minimurphlifts
As I sit here in my hotel room, in bed, suffering from an insane migraine from heat exhaustion - dang Phoenix - I can't help but feel the poetry in this.
For decades, my emotional health had been just as drained, depleted, if not more than my current shitty experience. This was me. Constantly. On the inside. And yet no one knew.
Currently, I can't breathe. I can barely keep my eyes open. Every joint, muscle, & fiber of my being is just BLEH. I'm so fatigued I can't even think straight.
Pain. Broken. Fractured. Defeated.
It's crazy to think about.
With physical pain, we take pain meds. We rub ointment, creams, we foam roll, stretch, put a Band-Aid.
Pictured, I'm at the gym.
You'd expect to see someone willingly signing up for this.
But what if you saw someone look like this during class?
On the side of the road?
Sitting next to you at a restaurant?
You'd ask if they needed help - or assistance - or something - right?
So what about your emotional health?
I'm really happy to see MENTAL health be a topic of conversation now.
Self-awareness and emotional intelligence are "hot topics" now and "self-care" shows up in everyone's timelines.
But EMOTIONAL health.
How you doin?
But like really:
How. Are. You. Doing?! What feelings are your processing?
Why and how are those feelings showing up in your life?
What are you doing to process?
Being mad, angry, pissed, frustrated, agitated, irritated, annoyed, lost, upset, disappointed?
Yes.. All those bad, negative feelings.
Those are necessary.
That's what makes us human.
Sometimes, the best thing you can do for someone is just be there. Listen.
Do you do that for yourself?
Your duty in life is to take care of ONE soul, ONE mind, ONE person, ONE body that you were gifted.
How would you rate yourself?
If YOU were someone else & you were taking care of this someone else - would you treat them the same or better than how you're currently taking care of yourself?
Sometimes, people have no idea where or how to take the next step.
To admit they're lost, show their feeling of brokenness.
How do you admit this to yourself?
How do you process those feelings?
Who or what do you go to for help?
So let's go there.

Each day I end with a yoga session, I must admit it is beyond relaxing to destress and stretch every muscle before bed! I have a couple different videos, I think I’ll post one every day! What a change in the tightness of my muscles, and like I said, a perfect way to breathe and let go. Yoga, it’s great for your body and mind✨
✨Sharing our story and being vulnerable comes from a sense of self worth and of knowing we are safe and loved in spite of our messiness.✨
When we are able to be vulnerable, we give others the freedom to do the same.
When I say being vulnerable, I don't just mean sharing the fact that we have bodily imperfections or how others have hurt us, I mean sharing the fact that we are growing and ⚡️MAKING MISTAKES⚡️all at the same time.
I am still, in all definitions of the word, human, and by living out my humanity and grasping that I am deeply loved and worthy of love in spite of that, I am allowing others the same ✨freedom✨
Self worth is not just wrapped up in the fact that we are crushing goals and adding value to someone's day, it lies in the parts we hide off social media, in the parts we don't want people to see, and yet fully KNOWING that we are still worthy of love. ❤️
✨ We cannot lead from a place where we act like we are ONLY worthy of love when we are being good or successful.
✨We cannot lead by pretending we don’t struggle.
Sharing our story and being vulnerable are important because we teach worthiness through them.
When we can live deeply rooted in our ✨WORTHINESS✨ in spite of our dark parts, we are giving others the freedom to do the same, to be loved fully and to be honest about their struggles.
✨ 𝐈𝐭'𝐬 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐛𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐚𝐭 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠. 𝐈𝐭'𝐬 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐛𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟. ✨
