These are the things that feed us, water, plants. These are the basis for all life. Their cycles are ours. Remember that our bodies were built over millennia just to live on this earth. Each an every process that feeds us is important. Each breath fed by a tree’s has exchanges, each cup of water, cycling through ocean, cloud, ground and more. These cycles are the defining cycles for our lives of Earth. Just walking through the forest can cause blood pressure to drops and stays low after leaving. Finding time to honour our ancestral bodies through time in nature is a Medicine I often recommend. By placing our bodies in oxygen rich , often peaceful places and consciously watching for how we feel can be a way of honing and fine tuning our sensitivity. As always it’s important to consider who has access to these safe natural places and that this kind of innate birthright is systematically denied to those in inner cities and high pollution areas.

I am worthy of love.
In the past 15 years I have seen my health drastically improve by acknowledging gluten and dairy intolerances, tried paleo for a few years, lost too much weight in stress, gone nearly vegetarian, and generally bounced between 110-117 lbs at just over 5’3”. The thing is, the higher end of that spectrum scares the sh*t out of me because for as long as I can remember, I 100% equate my physical appearance with my worth.
And at either end of the scale, I am working damn hard to exercise more, eat better, be better. Health matters, and working on that is okay. Believing that happiness sits on the other side of 5 lbs. is not.
No matter what anyone sees on the outside, I’ve struggled to believe that when I am not my fittest, I am still 1000% worthy of love.
I love and except those around me with eyes that cannot tell if any pounds are extra upon them. So why on earth am I such a jerk to myself, the person who has always been there, the person who needs my love the most.
Only recently did I stop bleaching my hair, cut it short, and decide that I can allow others to find me unattractive. I can stop trying so gosh darn hard.
I want someday to be a mother whose own body image is healthy enough that it does not misshape her daughter’s. I want to prove to others how loveable they are by first accepting myself. I want to know that at all times, regardless of my bikini status, I am worthy of love.
And to recognize how deeply I am, by the most incredible partner I could have never imagined, I am loved. ❤️ ♥️ ❤️ ♥️ ❤️ Thank you @jennakutcher@ritualtarot@yoga_girl@kathrynbudig
and so many others for your brave reminders. #iamworthyoflove
And so are you. YOU ARE UNEQUIVOCALLY WORTHY OF LOVE. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Life is not to be controlled. It is to be allowed.

I recently heard someone call self care a "woo woo" term and it perplexed me quite a bit...taking care of ourselves is essential albeit not always second nature in our society. Perhaps it's "woo woo" in that more sensitive people who may be considered "woo woo" or do "woo woo" things (like tarot for self care 🙋🏻) consider it a top priority for survival (speaking as one of those sensitive people 🙋🏻) Emotionally. Physically. Mentally. Spiritually. Socially. All of these need tending to or at the very least basic maintenance (swipe for some details on this ⬅️). If no one has said it lately ✨ you deserve to be cared for and you can do it for you ✨Self care doesn't have to be a lush spa weekend (but if you can, do that). Get that 30 min massage. Do those stretches that help with your back pain. You can set boundaries with those toxic people. You don't have to laugh at that bad joke. Drink water. Take that walk. Smell those flowers. Breathe again deeply and again and again. Journal. You can sleep, watch a show or take a bath instead of that other thing you feel you *have* to do. YOU 👏🏽 DESERVE 👏🏽SELFCARE 👏🏽 💓💓💓 #selfcare 👍🏼 #selfcareeveryday#epic#yet#simple#selfcareclub#littlethings#bigimpact#sensitive#soft#trees#selfcareinspiration
