Struggled with insecurities a lot in my life and I feel like I have overcome most of them! But it takes constant work! Are you comfortable in your own skin? If not, what’s holding you back?!


I’ve been very quiet. Mostly because of too many commitments all at the same time; but partly because there’s been one thing weighing on my mind a LOT. • Anyone who has been close enough to me to have discussed my past on a personal level has heard me ask this question. Mainly in regards to one specific topic, but I’ve asked it for many things. Because having had childhood trauma for such an extended period; its inevitable I would wonder how large of a role said trauma played in my everyday life. • The biggest question for me is this; Am I attracted to men because of the 7 years of trauma, or am I just attracted to men? • I’m currently writing a blog post on this topic in more depth, but I’ll say this much. I have only ever been in committed relationships with women. And I don’t know that that will ever change. What I do know is that I am also attracted to men too. And somebody in my life stripped me of the ability to ever know if that attraction is a matter of nature or nurture. (Which is a morbid analogy as there was nothing nurturing about it, but it fits nonetheless). And having been stripped of this ability to know the answer; I have tortured myself with the question hoping that somehow someway I’ll find an answer. Today is not that day. But everyday I am a step closer. And that is more than I could hope for otherwise. • #blogger #blog #life #sexualabuse #men #bi #sexuality #questions #findinganswers #mentalhealth #conqueringfears #askthequestion #thoughts #freedom #freeyourmind #understanding #judgementfree #nojudgement #nomore #speakup #bepresent #live #honesty #truth #torturedpast #childhoodtrauma #trauma

Would you believe me if I told you that I’ve never learned to do a cartwheel or handstand?! #truthbomb 💣 These donkey kicks terrify me. . So... No, I’m not perfectly vertical... No, I didn’t get as much “hang time” as I would like... BUT, for me to venture out of my comfort zone, and be UPSIDE DOWN is such a WIN (physically & mentally!) 🏆 ...and I’ll take whatever I can get today!! 😂 . The “little victories” are adding up, and they’re so worth it. . 3.20.2018


Goodbye Toronto.... see you Sunday! 💜 #conqueringfears #imamachine #flyingcompletelyalone #soproudofmyself #nopanic #noanxiety #nofear 🛫🛬


#Repost @sanjeda_john • • • I’m afraid of heights & deep sea... But today I challenge myself to do what I’ve always afraid of & becoz of that I get to add in another great experience in my live story! Yahooo! . Another 📜✅ 👏🏽 ___________________________________________ Thank you Sanjeda for sharing. We love stories like this! Reminder of the day - BE FEARLESS! Fear limits your vision and serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you #BUMBABABES at Kota Kinabalu

I conquered one of my biggest fears today and held a snake. 🐍 #conqueringfears #newbeginnings


There are four things in this life that will change you; love, music, art, and loss. The first three will keep you wild and full of passion. May you allow the last to make you Brave!

For our second day in our PTSD series we would like to clarify a couple of things. . According to NIMH and I quote “Not every traumatized person develops ongoing (chronic) or even short-term (acute) PTSD. Not everyone with PTSD has been through a dangerous event. Some experiences, like the sudden, unexpected death of a loved one, can also cause PTSD. Symptoms usually begin early, within 3 months of the traumatic incident, but sometimes they begin years afterward.” . Also some symptoms may not be as clear as others, sometimes PTSD may look like depression and be misdiagnosed. Everyone’s trauma threshold is different, not everybody that goes to war or that experiences sexual assault ends up with PTSD; trauma is a “catastrophic stressor” and it can be different from one individual to another. . Tomorrow we will be talking about PTSD symptoms in more detail, so make sure to come back then. Also you might want to tag someone who likes sunsets they may like this picture! See you tomorrow. at El Escorial, Madrid


So after 36 (and a half!) years, I’m finally getting my license...nothing like diving in on day 1 with some highway driving, right?! 🚦🚗😳🙌🏻 #operationpassion #itsabouttime #hallelujahimstillalive #soiseveryoneelse #conqueringfears #onedownfourtogo at Hamilton, Ontario

box jumps used to scare me SO much. i am not super coordinated, i have short legs and i don’t have any hops. but, over the last few months i have been working on a ton of strength training...and this morning, i managed to jump more than half my height (32”). sure, not the greatest athletic feat, but for me - it’s a small victory that i am pretty proud of. cheers to conquering fears & leg day! #smallwins #legday at American Council on Exercise - ACE


Last night at #3rdlairgirlsskateclub Kaia and Finley helping each other overcome fear. #teamwork #conqueringfears #girlsquad #skatergirls #skateboarding #ramitdown #trogarmy at 3rd Lair SkatePark & SkateShop


So happy that I accomplished something that was totally uncomfortable due to my fear of heights. I fought off adversity and got a high that I’ve never felt before. Also a heart rate of 192 that I’ve never felt All i can think about is doing it again faster, harder and more confident. You can do anything with the right mental state and encouragement! :) #accomplished #conqueringfears #treeumph #adventure #athletisism #obstaclecourse

I have been really enjoying my relationship with my daughter as she grows older. She’ll be 7 this summer and we are such good friends. I love hanging out with her but I still cherish the moments when I get to hold her and comfort her (like when she fell off the bed last night 😢) motherhood is an incredible journey and I am so happy with my one and only little Gigi 🖤 Outfits chosen by me ;)

Let's be honest: I was really scared of skiing for the first time. This took place a year ago. I had to ski for 2 kilometres, because I was stupid enough to agree to take part in a skiing competition. At that moment, I regretted my decision, but when the competition had began all thoughts disappeared and only emotions left. I tried my best to move ahead, I fell so many times, it's hard to imagine (I had bruises all over my body the next day), the organizers kept trying to get me back on my feet again and again, it's so hilarious... 🙈 Can't hold back the laughter just remembering all the mess I was in. I think you have already guessed, that I was the last one who reached the finish line. Those 2 kilometers were the longest in my life. However, I was so happy to do it and I'd do it again. I felt so proud of myself. Moral of the story: Don't let your fears and self-doubt hold you back from trying new stuff. I know, it's easier said than done, but believe me, trying is much better than wondering. And even the biggest failures, beats the hell out of never trying. #photography #winter #tbt #snow #skiing #sport #lifestory #lifethoughts #beabawse #bawse #conqueringfears #selfesteem #selfdoubt #instagood #instamood #motivation #enjoylife #healthylifestyle #staypositive #smile


This is New Zealand South Island from up above ⛰✈️ #funfact not really that much fun though..🙄 I love to travel, BUT I hate... no, I am terrified of flying. Every flight over the last few years has been a struggle through tears and anxiety 😥 My wish to travel and see the world is way bigger than my fear, but I need to face it and work on myself constantly to actually take a step to the airport. I hope that some day I can enjoy flying again! If you are wondering how on earth did I get from Estonia to New Zealand (~30h) then..yeah I needed to take some medicine to calm down 🤷🏼‍♀️💆🏼‍♀️ at Christchurch, New Zealand


Ask yourself, if what you’re doing today, is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow. These pictures were taken of Flatiron before and after and it’s very clear that at the end of the hike, the sun gave the mountains a beautiful shine. I remember thinking to myself when starting, “thats a really long way up!!” Despite the fear and anxiety I constantly felt, I knew that that is exactly where God wanted me to be and with that strength in my corner, I was unstoppable!! The last picture was amazing to see that I fought every step to get to that point! Most people let fear stop them from doing what they truly love but.. I’m the one that runs toward the lions roar! Facts about fear: Most of our fears fall into two categories: 1)failure 2) approval . Fear puts blinders on us from seeing God clearly. God doesn’t give us fear. If you run from fear, you might be running from your future. And most importantly, what we fear the most, often reveals where we trust God the least. #romans828 #jeremiah2911 #trustinthelord #blessed #godtakethewheel #unstoppable #godgivesmestrength #conqueringfears at Siphon Draw Trail


You guys.....this right here is a big deal!!! It only took me 5 1/2 years to overcome my fear of dressed up characters. This is my very first time allowing myself to be within 20ft. of one, and I was able to enjoy it and snag a photo with my cousin Maya....such a big step for me🙌🏼 #conqueringfears #brave #nosweat #5yearsold #springbreak #mickeymouse #disneyland #kidsofinstagram #cutegirl #cute_ig_kids at Disneyland


🌸 Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid, courage means you don’t let fear stop you 🌸 I let fear get the better of me for too long, I will no longer let it hold me back. I will no longer put things off because I fear I am not good enough, talented enough, knowledgeable enough & so on. I will rise above my fears and learn my lessons along the way. Every day facing fears and conquering them ✨

Let's talk about a scary 4-letter "F" word, shall we? 🤐 Any guesses...? 🤷 It's FEAR! 😱 (Almost had ya there, didn't I?!) 😉 It's that thing that is holding you back from doing the BIG, FRIGHTENING STUFF that could create EPIC CHANGES in your life and your business. 🌟 It's the thing that makes your palms sweat, your stomach do flips, and your heart start racing anytime you dip a pinky toe OUTSIDE OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE. 🚫 But we don't have to let fear CONTROL US. 🙅‍♀️ We can learn to turn fear into a friendly sidekick. Someone (or something) that has our back during the greatest challenges of our lives. SAY WHAT?! 🤔 I learned a really cool trick from my friend @juliereisler about how to create a "Fear Avatar," and hand to heart, it will CHANGE THE GAME FOR YOU. 💓 Want to find out more?! Just click the link in my bio to join the Magic of Marketing Facebook tribe! ☝️ I've got a video up right now that will help you turn fear into your greatest asset this year! See you on Facebook! ✨
