affirmation of the day / When I am soft, I am strong. When I am connected to my senses, my body, my breath, my sexuality, I am powerful.
When I let my sensual light shine and be visible, I become a beacon of healing and representation for others. I give them permission to access the soft, bold, vulnerable, unashamed parts of themselves.
I will be proud of my body as it is. I will find joy in my reflection. I will luxuriate in this skin I am in.
I will continue to take up space and challenge notions of modesty, respectability, femininity, worthiness, and beauty with my presence.
I will keep nurturing and deepening this relationship I've created with my sensuality because I know that when I give space for my softness, I empower and I heal. - @evyan.whitney
final post for this challenge. I have been so inspired this week by this community of brave females and the love and support. Be you & know that you are strong and powerful and soft and feminine all at the same time 🙏🏽
Looking into the future with high hopes, bright eyes, and a fresh perspective 🔭. .
I’ve spent so many years of my life doing the things that “I should do” because they were the “right thing, the adult thing, the responsible thing to do.” 🤔 This year I’m changing all of that. I’m breaking the mold, changing the habits, and learning to respect my needs and desires💯. .
My passion lies in mental health, health & wellness, and yoga 🧘🏼♀️ Being able to combine those fields, and teach kids about their body, brain, and emotions was a dream come true 🙏🏽. A dream that will continue to flourish and grow and I know in the future it will be something I return to on a level bigger than my dreams💭. .
A few weeks ago, I made a decision to leave my role teaching yoga to kids and pivot into a different sector of mental health 🧠 I spent the last few weeks traveling 🛫, spending time with friends, and resetting my entire mindset 📝. Clarity, peace, and happiness, have been restored and returned to my mind and body📍
With that, I am beyond pumped to say that tomorrow is the first day of this exciting adventure. So long comfy yoga clothes, hello business casual 👩🏼💼 (someone help style me please)! .
This step is the next stone into my ultimate dreams of pursing my PhD👩🏼🎓, and I can’t wait to share more with you guys (especially the cute clothes, shoes, and possibly new hair?!) There is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs… and friends, I’m taking these stairs all the way to the top☄️ .
I am learning to forgive those from my past who've hurt me. I am learning to heal old wounds. I am learning to love me, for me. I am learning that I love the world and all of those who dwell in it!! I am learning that I CAN and I WILL heal those with mental illnesses! GOD has planted in me a gift and I intend on using it to the best of my abilities.
