Gratitude really is a superpower (it’s not just a cliche saying) and If we could recommend just one gift to give yourself this year it would be a gratitude diary! This one from @createurbestself
Is our absolute favourite and the one we’re using! (Comes in various colours on amazon) - simple and easy to include in daily life and very inspiring. We’re almost half way through ours and loving it still! :)

Men can have depression
Men can have anxiety
Men can have suicidal thoughts
Men can have mental illness
Men can cry
Maybe instead of saying “man up” say “it’s okay to talk about it”. Reach out to those around you. Get beyond surface level and talk about it. The real stuff.
Are you ready to be the hero of your story?
With summer in full swing we haven’t had as many sessions as we would have liked in last few weeks being busy.
Anxiety is fuelled by two things. Emotional trauma and the survival strategies created from them.
The problem is these can become habitual and feel safe because they feel familiar. Letting go and living life via a new more helpful habit like with anything you learn takes a lot of conscious effort before it becomes your new habit.
This is where it is easy to self sabotage, beating yourself up the way you was taught to by someone else. Believing the stories you was told about you and repeating the false negative belief as if it was true.
One of the reasons I began this type of work is because I think it’s unfair that not only do you have negative experiences but sometimes it creates negative beliefs leading to a negative life.
Doesn’t have to be that way though, you learnt the stories you tell yourself about yourself, isn’t it time to rewrite the script so you get the happy ending you want and not repeat the same patten over and over again.
We get how the hump day blues can get you down so... your welcome. I’ve found that going outside during the Wednesday struggle to be one of the most rewarding acts of self love and self care I do on a weekly basis. If you haven’t tried it yet I recommend, getting your coat, and leaving the door before your head can tell you otherwise. You’ll thank us later. If you have any other great ways to get past Wednesday in comfort, share this with your friends, and let us know down below 👇🏻🌱
Last week my juniors and seniors and I discussed identity, what factors make up our identities and what factors change our identity.
One of the largest facets of my identity is being a high school English teacher. I always loved reading and wanted to be a librarian when I was little.
I’m now beginning my 20th year and my thirteenth year in the classroom. Switching from teaching virtual school has been a large transition for me. Lots of things have changed: the use of technology in the classroom (less copy making—yay!), the options for students for classes (lots of virtual and college level), and accelerated track in English, etc.
I still love working with teenagers after all these years. I love their developing minds as they learn about themselves and their world. I am also happy to work and collaborate with my colleagues face to face. The difference from the virtual teaching world is profound and I am not able to make my own schedule and have flexibility in my day but it’s making me level back up.
I’ve had to be highly organized and lead my children in that path. I had to look at what we needed to do and break it down: meal prep is now done Sundays for the kids and me, backpacks prepped and homework done nightly, clothes laid out (no more yoga pants and lack of shower before I work 😥), and we leave by 7 am latest to heat Atlanta traffic.
I have been praying for this opportunity for years now: someway to generate a salary without having to work two jobs and have summers off. Putting that vision out there, visualizing the outcome I wanted and working diligently to manifest it worked.
I have learned so much from my years of struggling financially as a single mom. Being positive, having gratitude and having faith in the best outcome has been key to this outcome. I’m so happy and grateful. If you’re struggling, hold that vision a few times of day of what you want and make it happen.
You will get what you need and want. Have faith! Happy Wednesday! ❤️❤️❤️
Here's a question from one of our own 🙏💖
If you could take a moment to show support, share insights, or give advice that would truly mean the world 🙏💖
Also, if you have questions of your own, please don't hesitate to send it through DM ✨ We're here for each other and would really love to hear from you! 🙋♀️💕 Much love!
If, like me, you periodically suffer from depression and/or anxiety, I highly recommend this book.
It combines a number of different therapies including neuroscience and CBT and helps to change the way you respond to anxiety-inducing situations.
It's well worth a read, no matter what your personal situation is and from the perspective of someone who periodically suffers from depression, it has helped me a great deal.
Understanding why I behave in certain ways and learning techniques on how to break old patterns, has helped me an awful lot and through this book, I have a greater understanding of myself.
