You are Not Everyone’s Cup of Tea

One of my biggest struggles… my constant attempt to please everyone else.
The thought of someone disliking me used to send me into straight up panic, and I was constantly changing myself to make everyone else happy.
.
➡️ NEWSFLASH ⬅️
.
No matter what you do you CANNOT control other people’s opinions of you. You are not everyone’s cup of tea.
.
The world is filled with people who, no matter what you do, no matter what you try, will simply not like you. But the world is also filled with those who will love you fiercely. The ones who love you: they are your people.
.
As soon as I stopped wasting my time trying to CONVINCE people to like me, I was able to spend all of time appreciating, loving, and enjoying the ones who do. Never ever feel like you need to PLEASE everyone. Make yourself happy. Make yourself proud. Let the rest go.

Don’t Let Social Media Fool You

Don’t let social media fool you.
There are people with only 10 likes who have plenty of friends, and people with 100+ likes that are incredibly lonely.

There are couples that appear extremely happy yet are in dysfunctional relationships.

There are girls who overexpose their bodies yet feel the most insecure.

Things aren’t what they always appear to be.
Just remember appearances are just that, appearances.

Fitness – The Underutilized Mental Health Tool

Anxiety is a b*t*h
Today was one of the bad ones and after working myself into an anxious nauseous mess, the last thing I wanted to do was workout.
But I know better.
I threw on workout clothes and got it done anyway.
Why??? Because I truly do believe fitness is one of the most underutilized mental health tools out there.


I challenge you to try it next time…
Anxious?
Stressed?
Depressed?
Go MOVE… you’ll be so happy that you did

All Calories Are Not Created Equal

Soo here’s the deal. Both foods are calorically equal. Is either bad for you?! Nope… but all calories aren’t created equal.

When it comes to weight loss you CANNOT lose weight without a caloric deficit. So whether you fill your diet with cookies or avocado, if you’re consuming more calories than you are burning you unfortunately won’t lose weight.

So why pick the avocado?🥑
Besides being much more nutritious than cookies, you will be ten times more satisfied and be taking in way more nutrients and health benefits. So while yes, calories are equal, think about what would be more satisfying 3 hours later.

Nutrition info based on 3oz of avocado vs 2 chips ahoy soft cookies.

Which would you pick?!
