To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
do you ever have those days in the gym where you really just don’t feel like you?
today was one of those days for me. .
I hadn’t been feeling well all day but decided to push through it & try to get a light back workout in but was definitely not feeling it ; so much so that I only took my jacket off just for this picture
feeling not your best is normal sometimes. there will be days that you’re tired or you just don’t feel too confident in yourself. we all have those days ; don’t beat yourself up over it. .
I was getting down on myself & letting some negative self talk get though & as soon as I realize what I was doing to myself, I snapped myself out of it & actually had a pretty good lift. .
my whole point is this : on those days where you really just don’t feel like as much of a badass as you actually are, realize what you need & let yourself have just that. I needed to not let poor self talk get though, so I shut it out. .
always listen to what you need & then get back to kicking ass at being you. .

"TIPS FOR SELF VALIDATION (cc: hellyeahagender tumblr)
-Be your own best friend. Think of yourself the way you’d think of a friend and treat yourself the way you’d treat a friend. If you start thinking something self-deprecating or awful about yourself, ask yourself whether you’d say that thought out loud about a person you care about. Would you tell your best friend that their gender isn’t valid, that their art sucks, that someone else is better than them? Nope. People can be faster to defend someone else than they are to defend themselves so treat that negative inner voice like you would some asshole talking shit about someone you love. If you wouldn’t consider a thought to be fair if it was said to them, it’s not fair to you to think it about yourself.
-Validate other people. Send positive anonymous messages to people you follow or who follow you. If there’s a certain thing you feel uncertain about (gender, sexuality, a hobby, anything) then find a tag on tumblr for it and go through it sending positive anon messages to the people posting there. Look at their reactions, look how happy they are. Loving others is a good step towards loving yourself.
-Don’t let other people invalidate you. If a website has a block button then use it as often as you need to. Someone sends you a nasty message? Posts something gross or bigoted in a tag? Block them. You’re not obligated to reply to someone who sends you upsetting messages or posts upsetting shit in a tag you frequent. You don’t have to justify a block to anyone. Often people feel like they have to respond to vitriol in order to defend themselves or their principles but you have to ask yourself what you hope to get out of doing that and what it will take out of you. There’s a difference between someone who is being an asshole just to be an asshole and someone who is genuinely confused, there’s a difference between replying to someone who you will get nothing out of but more insults and frustration and replying to someone who genuinely wants to learn and have a discussion. There are conversations that are productive and uplifting and ones that aren’t.

I think you're brave as fuck and strong as hell.
The way you give love, and the way you feel love is rare, and out of anyone you deserve love the most.
I know it's been hard as of late, and you feel like you're searching for something that doesn't exist.
You're losing hope, and yet you continue to fight through the things meant to stop you.
To be honest, I admire you and I find inspiration within all the things that you go through in your head.
The unwavering kindness and love that you give to this world is unmatched by anything imaginable.
So here's to you for refusing to become anything but what you were meant to be, and for refusing to give up on the type of love that you know you deserve. ♡♡
Omg #veins. So gross lol 😂 💪
I guess one of the benefits that came along with a stronger body is a self confidence! I’ve learned to love myself too much to care about what others think. Plus who said fake butts and faces are beautiful? #beyou#loveyourself#youarebeautiful#real 😘
