I had a cuddly little E.T toy when I was a nipper. One day my boxer dog chewed all of its facial features off (as if it didn't look weird enough already). I still have it. I still love it. I still have to explain to anyone who sees it what the fuck it is. Instagram Photos | videos | post

This post was inspired by nearly every single person on The X Factor trotting out the same trite gobbledegook.

I've only caught one episode of it this time round, but it was enough to remind me why I don't really watch programmes like that anymore.

Obviously, each to their own, but personally, I don't believe in pre-determined fate or that any god decides my destiny. Whenever I see god related stuff, which is obviously alllllll the time, (because it took off a bit, that religion malarkey) I just pass it by like I do all the other popular stuff that makes no sense to me. (I don't get the obsession with coffee and cats either.) What makes sense to me is free will, personal accountability, science and nature (and dogs and tea over cats and coffee every time no contest). Instagram Photos | videos | post

Soulful Sundays 💫 
Pets & nature increase your well-being. Also it's a good way to distract yourself from any urges to engage in self-destructive behaviour; it will keep you present and attuned to the beauty around you rather than worrying about the past or future. It's hard not to smile with these two cuties around 🙌🏻

You know when people say:

You know when people say: "You shouldn't do X because X will happen"? Well, I urge you to remember that you're allowed to completely disregard such unsolicited, biased, judgemental, controlling, passive aggressive, doom and gloom predictions if you want to. You're allowed and entitled to make up your own mind. You're allowed to do your own research. You're allowed to make decisions, mistakes and changes to your own life, in your own way, in your own time, in whichever way you damn well choose. You don't have to ask permission. You don't need anyone's blessing. You don't need to listen to people who think they can predict the future. You don't need to do what everyone else does. You don't have to do what you've always done. You're not obligated to learn from other people's mistakes or experiences. You are absolutely allowed to create your own world.

This was my attitude pre-sobriety. What need had I for exercise? I had a quite glamorous job, existed on a few morsels of food, knocked back pints of Amstel as if I were a rugby player... & went down to 7 stone.
...
This is not a path to health.
...
Those first days without alcohol were terrifying. One of the first things I understood was that I would need to eat more food now. I was hungry.
...
With more food slowly- very slowly- i began to exercise. I joined the local 5k Park Run & this morning marks my 40th Park Run :) I couldn't recommend it more.
...
Thank you @parkrunuk I think your swell.

Getting comfy in our darkness with the backdrop of the Brooklyn skyline for #KundaliniDisco with Club SÖDA NYC's Sober Curious summer brunch at McCarren rooftop a few months back. 🙈 Today marks the Autumnal equinox, a time of balancing darkness and light. As we head towards winter our days become shorter and nights longer. Darkness begins to envelope the skies of the northern hemisphere earlier each day...Begin to nourish your radiance by sitting in your darkness more often, infuse this space with joy and make time for self care rituals. Find comfort in your own skin. Within this inner space. There is so much to be learned from this darkness. So much gets created from this space. This truly is the nothingness that everything is made of. ✨Find your balance, shine your light and meet me in the darkness!✨

Happy Fall 🍁 there's never a better time to make peace and let things that you've been dragging around, maybe for a lifetime, go.
•
One thing I let go of many years ago was an idea of who I was supposed to be--hard, tough, strong. There was no room for kindness, love, and compassion. I'm not exaggerating.
•
The characteristics and personality traits I coveted for this was--not caring, shutting down, anger, dismissive, unlovable, COLD.
•
I get sad thinking of all that pain trapped inside who I used to be.
•
Freedom is a choice. Just. Like. That. You can choose who you want to be.
•
I chose LOVE.
•
Like the trees I had to let go of all the faux armor that I thought was keeping me safe my whole life. I had no idea it was killing me - there was no room for growth.

I had a cuddly little E.T toy when I was a nipper. One day my boxer dog chewed all of its facial features off (as if it didn't look weird enough already). I still have it. I still love it. I still have to explain to anyone who sees it what the fuck it is. Instagram Photos | videos | post

This post was inspired by nearly every single person on The X Factor trotting out the same trite gobbledegook.

I've only caught one episode of it this time round, but it was enough to remind me why I don't really watch programmes like that anymore.

Obviously, each to their own, but personally, I don't believe in pre-determined fate or that any god decides my destiny. Whenever I see god related stuff, which is obviously alllllll the time, (because it took off a bit, that religion malarkey) I just pass it by like I do all the other popular stuff that makes no sense to me. (I don't get the obsession with coffee and cats either.) What makes sense to me is free will, personal accountability, science and nature (and dogs and tea over cats and coffee every time no contest). Instagram Photos | videos | post

Pets & nature increase your well-being. Also it's a good way to distract yourself from any urges to engage in self-destructive behaviour; it will keep you present and attuned to the beauty around you rather than worrying about the past or future.

Getting comfy in our darkness with the backdrop of the Brooklyn skyline for #KundaliniDisco with Club SÖDA NYC's Sober Curious summer brunch at McCarren rooftop a few months back. 🙈 Today marks the Autumnal equinox, a time of balancing darkness and light. As we head towards winter our days become shorter and nights longer. Darkness begins to envelope the skies of the northern hemisphere earlier each day...Begin to nourish your radiance by sitting in your darkness more often, infuse this space with joy and make time for self care rituals. Find comfort in your own skin. Within this inner space. There is so much to be learned from this darkness. So much gets created from this space. This truly is the nothingness that everything is made of. ✨Find your balance, shine your light and meet me in the darkness!✨

Happy Fall 🍁 there's never a better time to make peace and let things that you've been dragging around, maybe for a lifetime, go.
•
One thing I let go of many years ago was an idea of who I was supposed to be--hard, tough, strong. There was no room for kindness, love, and compassion. I'm not exaggerating.
•
The characteristics and personality traits I coveted for this was--not caring, shutting down, anger, dismissive, unlovable, COLD.
•
I get sad thinking of all that pain trapped inside who I used to be.
•
Freedom is a choice. Just. Like. That. You can choose who you want to be.
•
I chose LOVE.
•
Like the trees I had to let go of all the faux armor that I thought was keeping me safe my whole life. I had no idea it was killing me - there was no room for growth.
