good evening lovelies!

please be amused by what i stumbled upon this morning while perusing la larabar website…

IT'S ME! I'M FAMOUS! well, almost ;)

send larabar your pictures too, they are obviously happy to post them :)

————————————————————————————————————————————-

so, i wanted this post to be positive, uplifting, & happy. but to be honest, i’m struggling. i don’t know what happened, today was not a bad day. my only obligations were class, and my homework has only been the standard things. i had a nice yoga session, brining yogadownloads back into my life. but i feel like i am panicking right now.

how do i do this alone?

i feel like such such a baby, i have so many people supporting me [my family, all you bloggies], but trusting this & ultimately myself is completely foreign. i am feeling unsure about my leap of faith. i have a hard time convincing myself that i really need to change & that i really am doing it the right way.

will i ever be content?

sorry to be such a downer, i feel like i have been so negative lately (maybe i was a roller-coaster in a past life).

i’m trying to do some yoga breathing & smiling :)

  1. 1- that is freakin’ awesome haahha love it!!

    2-we are very similar… seriously you are not alone! i have similar feelings of anxiety ALLLL the time because i am trying to change/gain weight. sometimes i’m totally motivated & other times i start thinking (i’m fine ,i feel fine, so why should i change) but i just remember that this is NOT healthy & i start thinking about all the people I see living life alot more carefree. I think about how much happier I would be if i didn’t let thoughts about food & everything consume my mind.. it’s hard but you ARE doing the right thing. stay strong, i know you can do it :)

  2. Awe yay!! haha I love that you are posted on the Lara site!

    Yoga has been keeping me motivated too :)
    keeps my mind focused, and helps me learn and feel differant things in and about MY body!

  3. that’s amazing you celebri-bloggy-ty!
    Honesty, and admitting that not all is super duper is better than putting up a masquerade…. yoga is a great release, and I have affirmations posted everywhere, by my bed, on my desk, in planners etc – because sometimes we need a reminder that we are amazing (seriously, we are!) and worth it … life is not always roses and butterflies, but the struggles make the highs that much sweeter. I’ve been crazy busy, and reminding myself that I am worth it
    (we all are worth it!) and my best is good enough, so to be proud of the things i can do not ashamed of that which I cannot is keeping me going! (Along with too much coffee and apple with darkchocdreams almost every late night! )
    You do it by trying, and knowing that your efforts are good enough, and trying not to be afraid … wow this may now be just senseless ramblings, and I hate when people are like ‘keep your spirits up’, but seriously you are worth it!

  4. How exciting, now I can say I know someone famous!

  5. Good morning, beautiful girl!
    The hardest realization is taking a moment to sit back and through the silence realize you are alone. Sometimes, though, when I have the most support from friends and family, I feel the most alone. It’s hard for others to understand and conceive the battles we fight on a daily basis. Try not to feel pressured by others and their expectations. Sit back and revel in the silence. Experience the presence that is yourself. I find that mindfulness exercises help me feel focused and centered. Once I’m in the present moment I enjoy going for a slow stroll outside. Something about fresh air allows my head to clear and thoughts to blow away with the breeze.
    So, breathe in. Breathe out. Smile. Even if it’s a fake smile, just do it. Now focus on the moment at hand and do what you need to do to get through it.

    I have so much faith in you (though I don’t know you all that well). Your blog shows your determination and strength.

    “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself” said the brilliant FDR.

    Have a lovely, mindful day.

  6. Congrats on being featured on LaraBar’s site!! :) How exciting!! :)

  7. Hang in there sweets, you can pull through with motivation!
    The opportunity to do things I used, but can’t do now, motivates me. One thing in particular is playing soccer. I only dream of the day that I can try out for team with any worries or frustrations in my way.

  8. lol, don’t you love seeing your face in the middle of your monitor! Congrats! :D
