It’s possible to meditate daily for 30 days… with a little help from my friends and my other takeaways from 30 days of meditation…...
I'm beginning to sound like broken record. I do hold back from being Me, because of the not-good-enoughs swirling in my DNA, which cause me anxiety.
Before you tell me to STOP IT....
I have stopped my not-good-enoughs in its tracks, but it has to start somehow somewhere.. Something has to catch fire before you put the fire out.
I don't think there's any way to stop the thoughts from forming. And the hardest job is not believe in the lie that we believed as the truth all our lives. And it's possible to listen, acknowledge and do what scares you most, which is to drop the not-good-enoughs and just be good, and have faith that that is enough.
When we have no happiness within, we have no happiness to give others
- Ajahn brahm
This post was inspired by a conversation I had with a friend of mine. We were talking about why people have an opinion on everything and then it came down to us discovering a simple truth of why people can be so unkind and mean - you know who they are. Could be the people that you hang out with. Could be your colleagues, your family.
You wonder why they do the things they do, why they say what they say.
The truth is they are not nice because they are not happy.
And the reality is we can't make them change unless they are willing and ready to change. But we can change the words we say to ourselves because our words make our world. Kindness starts with You.

Reposted on on my personal IG but I think it deserves more attention and more thought.
When did we forget to play? When did we start caring what the world things of us?
In Baptiste Yoga, we are given access to discover the Lie we tell ourselves since young, which we believed was the Truth of ourselves.⠀
My lie was I’m a bad girl and I’m not good enough.⠀
And i’ve been working on discovering the ME - before the Lie took over - the ME that is whole and complete. The ME that is full of courage and loving kindness.
The ME before I gave a DAMN about what other people think of me.
