✨I am enough✨
How did you feel reading that? For some of us it feels inviting, and for others it feels like a struggle to accept it. ✨This is for those who struggle✨
I was trapped in the idea that my body had to look a certain way, that I had to be smarter and more successful to be worthy, as well as have an everlasting smile that never faded.
I still struggle with this from time to time and compare myself to other women with these qualities, this is normal!
What's not normal was the torture I put myself through back in the day because none of it is true💛 ✨What do they have over me✨
Absolutely nothing because the type of woman I was envisioning was ME.
When we fear something in someone else, when we feel threatened by an outside force, if we take a closer look, we find the the image resembles a 2.0 version of ourselves! ✨Take a look at your fears-they reflect your qualities✨
The truth: you are afraid to embrace these things because they make you responsible and force you to move out of your comfort zone! ✨Just like others mirror our negatives, they mirror our positives✨
So next time you catch yourself running the comparison game(real or imagined figure) realize that you only want the best for yourself. Step into your full potential and own it💛
As I was scrolling through the website of the Dutch embassy in Australia, hoping to find an internship, I stumbled upon this coffee add.

He named it after his daughter Anda, my mother. I'm surprised at how things can come together sometimes. #lookcloser#familyhistory#proudtobeafarmer#theyhavetoemploymenow#dutchembassy#justcallmynameandillbethere
My dad loves the matching King Gee & pondering about old ruins & previous inhabitants. "I wonder who lived there?
Photo from yesterday's mushroom hunt. We picked two field mushrooms & spied huge slippery jacks. Kooky amanitas turned out their fairytale forest charm too (just for looking not for eating).
"The force which causes mushrooms to push up from the earth overnight" -
The Anishinaabe term translated to discribe such energy in one eloquent word has always struck me with such lingual simplistic beauty & grace.
