You can't consume sh*t and expect to unleash awesomeness. Input affects output. It's simple maths. I, nontheless, learned this lesson the hard way. Eventually, void of nutrition, my body broke down, which then affected my mental wellbeing, which then led to a burn out.
You are one complete whole human being my lovely. One area directly impacts the other. Keep it Badass by consuming the best you can afford and to remain mentally, physically and spiritually strong enough to power through. .
And don't worry I think of everything.There are power food recipes on the website too. Check it out.

Someone influential told me that she was really good in a lucrative field. Unfortunately, she was bored with it and thought it wasn't supposed to be easy, so she chose another way. .
She told me if she could go back she would have done that career wise and worked her way up. Discovering that one thing you could do fairly easily might be helpful! Discovering the thing or things you'd do for free in life are invaluable.
I like creating art, but honestly that might be more of a hobby. .
23 is the perfect time for me to discover what that is. www.truity.com was a good source in helping me find out more about my personality. I'm not an affiliate. I hope it helps you out. It's like a free version of the Briggs Myers personality test. My personality type was spot on. .
Whatever you do. Apply yourself! I applied myself in jobs I know I didn't really like or were unrelated to my art degree. Nevertheless I wish everyone success. At the end of the day it comes down to how bad you want the vision, hard work, balance, and diligence! .
God bless yall! If you don't mind sharing your personality type place it in the comments! 🏌️♂️👍
More love. More understanding. More compassion. More patience. More gentleness.

Life is a matter of choices. ⠀
Throughout your day you are constantly bombarded with decisions you have to make. And each of these start to define who you are. Make sure that the choices you make are ones that reflect your values, your passions and what you LOVE. ⠀
Reflect on your purchases to see which ones are not Wellspent, so you can spend more intentionally on things that make you, you!
Really working to cultivate contentment. ✨
As a very aesthetically-driven person living in a world that often seems to preach more-is-better, I struggle being satisfied with what I already have. Working in retail doesn’t help much, either.
When I feel dissatisfied, instead of buying something new or wasting time scrolling on my phone (which often leaves me wanting what I don’t have), I am challenging myself: first to think of all the incredible ways God has already provided, and then to do something tactile. I find that writing, painting, or even cleaning helps me to find contentment. Something about using my hands helps to ward off the desire for more and to foster satisfaction.
I would love to hear any tips or thoughts on cultivating contentment. 💕

Monday Night Thoughts >>
is not really how it works.
You aren’t a ten dollar bill
in last winter’s coat pocket.
You are also not lost.
Your true self is right there,
buried under cultural conditioning,
other people’s opinions,
and inaccurate conclusions
you drew as a kid that became
your beliefs about who you are.
is actually returning to yourself.
An unlearning, an excavation,
a remembering who you were
before the world got its hands on you.”

This is how I feel about long weekends, bike rides along the beach, hikes with friends, hanging in nature, a delicious almond milk latte, a bunch of fresh flowers, a stroll under the stars! What ignites a spark inside of you? What brings that big goofy smile to your face? 🌟
Each one of us goes through a rough patch, we feel stuck, depressed, discouraged and completely unmotivated. This has been me for the last year and a half, but here are some ways that I have learned to get out of that funk (and currently practicing every day). 1. Biological Balance
Are you going to bed early enough? Are you eating well? Are you stressing your liver with processed foods? Are you dieting and not consuming enough calories? Our body is a hard worker to keep everything balanced, but sometimes, we need to help our with that process. An imbalance can absolutely affect our moods. So make sure you are sleeping good, eating good, and practicing self-care. It’s CRUCIAL!
Anyone can journal! And writing down your thoughts and feelings can be extremely helpful for your soul.
3. Giving back
Kindness and gratitude are healing. When you start to get down in a funk, make it a must to get out and volunteer or do something kind for someone else. Write a thank you note to someone who has done something recently for you. Kindness is a proven mood lifter! You won’t regret it.
4. Get outside and get moving
You heard me! Taking a walk in nature is so helpful. Ask a friend to come if you don’t want to be alone. The best part about walking? It’s exercise. And that increases oxygen to your brain and helps you solve problems. So when you feel overwhelmed and in a funk, take some time to see something wonderful and breathe deeply.
Always remember that the times you are in a funk are really a normal part of life. There is nothing wrong with you. And it’s really important to have the reflection to process big and small changes in your life. Always let yourself reach out to someone and ask for help with you need it. Don’t suffer in silence – do something to help yourself out of the funk you are in.

Is it just me or do you ever feel like in the building process of life, it seems like for every two blocks stacked, at least one comes tumbling down? 😆⠀
I have to remind myself that it’s a process and to keep on building!!
The past 3 weeks have given me a WHOLE new appreciation for how much time and logistical genius it takes to cook 21 meals/week for yourself. I made breakfast and some lunches and some dinners before, so let's say I made 14 meals/week. Now I feel like I just cook and do dishes... and more dishes 😜 but, it also makes me feel SO connected to my body and having the power to decide and prepare everything that is going to nourish me.
I can't explain it exactly, but I imagine it's sort of like taking care of a new baby (moms tell me if this analogy makes sense). It looks like (and it is) a lot of work, but you realize that it's work you WANT to be doing, and the vibrational power of doing it for someone you love (your baby or yourself!) is pretty spectacular. I've been lucky enough to be working from home a lot so I don't need to prep everything ahead of time (though I'm not going to lie, I do miss restaurants!) but at the moment I'm feeling pretty inspired to keep this going. Who out there gets what I'm saying?! xx Adrienne [📷@theplantedone] #getwellbe

Everything worthwhile is all uphill. But the issue is that we have uphill hopes, with downhill habits, especially living unintentionally ~ we don’t actively make things happen & we e x p e c t things to happen. Most people expect their life, not lead it, not create it and definitely don’t appreciate it.
The only way to go uphill = be intentional. Be deliberate and consistent. Know what you want to accomplish, your dreams, your goals, have the right tools to help you, be focused, consistent and just. keep. going.
Invest in yourself, in your personal growth and development. Your attitude is a choice, choose the right one. That uphill climb is going to get heavy! Find your purpose, what are you passionate about? Surround yourself with the right people ~ they will either make you or break you. Add value to others & encourage others to do the same ✨
Make conscious choices every day to live intentionally, are you going to lead your life or expect it to happen for you? 💃🏼
Operating out of fear is a recipe for a landfall of bad decisions, especially when it comes to your health. It’s like trying to climb a large sand dune knowing you need to get to the top, but you can’t even get 5 feet. You wind up exhausted and overwhelmed. Unfortunately, that’s the typical route when confronted with tough health choices. Fear takes over, it becomes all you think about, worry about. You live and breathe it. It cascades like a raging waterfall into more worry and doubt. 🌿
Awww, but making decisions based on your hopes and a positive mindset sets you up for so much more than you can imagine. It’s powerful and contagious, like the soundtrack from “The Greatest Showman”. It IS the cornerstone of healing. 🌿
Fear & Hope are mindsets that prove to be self fulfilling. So listen up my friend. If you have to choose, choose HOPE.
Need we say more?! ⠀
Just remember that when it feels like nothing is going right.

The choice is ALWAYS YOURS. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“ What are my moves?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Who am I doing this for?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“What will it take to get there?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Who will this affect?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨These are examples of intention setting questions I have asked myself for every BIG decision or small undecided change coming about. These keep me focused, self aware, and goal oriented. I’m always doing it for ME & if the answer differs, it means a change is in store! I strive to look at the truest outcome, all relative emotions or opinions aside. I’ve practiced this for an entire year & I’ll say that when you’re clear on what you want, the rest is up to you. The universe will always provide you what you need as soon as you make room for it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We all have a choice to make today. Either choose to show up for yourself completely, or continue making excuses as to why you are not showing up for yourself. What are your moves? ♟
Last week was horrible for Gdańsk. We lost our hero, our friend, father of this city. Our mayor Paweł Adamowicz was murdered. I know most of you didn’t know him but he was a marvelous man. He’s been a mayor for over 20 years, he’s been elected for the 6th time just 2 months ago. I keep saying that in a small village with couple hundreds of people a mayor knows every citizen and works on every man’s wish but Paweł Adamowicz did that in a city with 500 000 citizens. We all knew him and he knew all of us. Each one of Gdańsk citizens had an individual story with him, I am sure of it. I had a couple of those.
But what people started talking about is this fight between evil and good. We can’t let evil win. Sometimes it is hard to let go but when you fight back, evil vs evil, bad energy wins.
Instead of that we should all do an examination of conscience. Think about your thoughts, your actions, examine your past. See what did you do wrong and try to fix it.
We all need to unite in this time. We all need to be good, do good deeds to let good win.
Our Polish TV says now „We all need to be nice to each other. We all need to be good now. Maybe say „good morning” to your neighbour? Let’s smile to each other!” and all I keep thinking is what a horrible time it has come to. Do we really need to tell others to smile? To say „Good morning”? What has happened to the inner good? To the inner will to be polite?
On this day, one week since our mayor has passed away, I still can’t understand how it has come to this, I still can’t understand how someone can be so evil.
But i still believe that there are more good people than bad ones. We just need to show it to them!
Please do something good this week! Help out a charity, volunteer in some social event, help a stranger, smile at others (although this one is an obvious one)!
Our mayor’s last words were „Let’s share good”. Please lets do that.

Talk therapy is wonderful and useful for so many things. Like most modalities, it has its place – but that place isn’t in working through and healing trauma.
I hear so many people share hopelessness, frustration, and feelings of being “unable to be helped” due to traditional talk therapy on it's own being ineffective in working through trauma. I’m going to share some (very brief) science here that might be helpful to understand, as well as helpful in ceasing the shame around not finding healing through talk therapy alone.
When we experience trauma, it gets stored in capsules in our midbrain (our subcortical, non-verbal brain). This part of the brain cannot be accessed through talk therapy, as talk therapy uses our Neocortex (our conscious, thinking brain). No matter how much we talk about it, we simply can’t get to the depth of where these memories and experiences are stored.
By utilizing somatic approaches, we can access this subcortical system where trauma is stored. We can get to the root of where these experiences are held in our body, which allows us to start transforming and healing those parts of ourselves in deep and profound ways that talking about just isn’t capable of (no matter how “expert” a talk therapist is).
I finished phase one of Brainspotting training this weekend and I’m so inspired to continue this work and offer this incredible support for people who have experienced trauma. I was reminded of how important these somatic and relational therapies are, how powerful it is to access these parts of our brain and body, and how harmful it can be to treat trauma without awareness of these things.
I don’t often talk about the science behind therapy here, but there is a lot of it! I may share more in the future about different types of therapy, different modalities of healing, and different ways of accessing support that aren’t often talked about in the mainstream world of therapy. Sending you support as you navigate whatever may be coming up for you in this moment. 🌙
One of my favorite daily rituals is pulling a card from @worthwhilepaper's beautiful Inquire Within deck. It invites self-reflection, contemplation, and a brief moment of stillness. This morning's card: “Seeing things for what they are.” What immediately came to mind was all the ways we *don’t* allow ourselves to simply see things as they are.
We are meaning-making creatures. We make meaning from everything that happens in our lives, which can be so poignant and beautiful. However, we also make meaning from the lens of our lived experiences, our past, and our own stories, which can create challenge. We infuse what’s happening with our own perspectives and beliefs, which often makes it difficult to see things for what they are, rather than for what we turn them into.
A simple example: someone doesn’t text us back immediately (or at all). Instead of seeing it as, “this person didn’t text me back,” we tend to see it from a million different stories: They hate us. They don’t care about us. They aren’t making time for us. We aren’t worthy of their time. They’re mad at us. We did something wrong. We messed something up. They aren’t supportive. They’re rude. They are selfish. Do you see how many different ways we can see something so simple? We see through our own lens, and our own lens is made up of our own stories.
With this insight and self-awareness, we can start pausing BEFORE we react from our own lens. We can get curious. We can create space. And, from here, we can approach experiences with curiosity, rather than with our own narrow perspective (which often ends up causing us to feel hurt, even though it tries to protect us).
The next time you feel yourself automatically seeing something from your own lens, I invite you to pause and get curious. Questions to ask yourself: What am I adding to this story? What am I attributing to this that might not actually be true? What am I creating out of my own fear or insecurity? What is actually happening, and what am I infusing into it? What else? How might creating a little bit of space here feel more supportive and freeing? Things to reflect on; let me know what resonates (and what doesn't). Sending you ease. 🌟

A gentle reminder about therapy (and a few examples above): Therapists and other "helpers" can support you, but it is truly up to you to do the work -- and I could think of nothing more empowering or inspiring than choosing to take ownership over your own healing and your own life.
We are rooting you on, all along the way. 💛
