You may or may not have noticed that I recently changed my Instagram handle.
It’s something I’ve wanted to do for over a year, but FEAR has held me back from doing so.
Fear has held me back from a lot of things recently and I refuse to continue to let it be the driving force in my life.
More on fear in my next post,
but I wanted to explain a bit about why I chose the handle I did, for those who are curious.
People always ask me what I want to do after I graduate and my answer is always the same..
As long as I am waking up every morning to go and work in a field I am passionate about, I’ll be happy.
I want my life to be driven by my passion to help and serve others. “
I want to put my heart and soul into everything I do.
To let everything I do be done in love, with love, and for the glory of Christ.
This may mean that my life won’t be the most glamorous or extravagant. And it definitely means that my my life won’t always be comfortable.
I know I will be challenged in more ways than one.
But it’s time I let my faith be bigger than my fear.
Because to me it’s worth it.
The fulfillment and pure joy of living for God brings is far more satisfying to my soul than chasing after what society deems as “success”.
So this brings me to the word MERAKI.
Which is defined as doing something with love, passion and a lot of soul; leaving a piece of yourself in what you do.
@yoga_lovely had been a name that I connected with for many years but no longer felt inspired by it, now every time I open up my page I am reminded of my intention.
To do everything I do be done with love, passion, creativity, and soul.
To not just post “content” but to make sure everything I share is from my heart and meaningful to me.
Thank you all for your support and kind words and love all these years. Forever grateful for this community.

Do you ever just wish someone cared as much as you did?
How do you know they don’t?
What are you making it mean that you can’t see/hear/feel them caring about you?
Misaligned connection and poor boundaries mixed with lack of conscious communication are a basic recipe for relating that fosters low self-esteem.
Read that again.
Break it down: 1. misaligned connection - on some level, you are out of alignment with the other. It could be your values, sexual expression or emotional literacy. No one has said anything about it yet = painful.
2. Poor boundaries. You both keep doing things that trigger the fuck out of the other and result in shut down or rejection and no-one is being clear/straight about precisely WHY this is so OR setting a clear boundary to prevent it recurring.
3. Lack of conscious communication. When I start any interaction by talking about what you did or said to hurt me, I’ve already put you into defence mode and it’s extremely unlikely you’ll hear me, let alone feel compassion. True conscious communication takes us both into account and has repair and generosity as its end goal.
If your relationship is bringing you down, you are chasing your tail when you look outside of yourself to resolve it.
Don’t keep doing the same things and hoping for a different result.
I can help you with this. I learned the hard way so I know my shit.
Join me on 21st, let’s get this ball rolling.

Frieden und Freude ist eine Wahl.
Eine machtvolle Entscheidung.
Die Gedanken, die wir wählen erschaffen unsere Realität und färben unser Handeln. Denken wir angstvoll, wenden wir uns von der Liebe ab. Wenden wir uns der Liebe zu, breitet sich Frieden in uns aus. Wir entspannen. Wir sind gelassen.
Ich lade dich zu einer liebevollen Challange ein:
Probiere heute dich für wenigsten 3 Mal bei den kleinsten Situationen, in denen du dich normalerweise lieblos verhältst oder entscheidest, dich für die Liebe zu entscheiden.
Markiere und lade deine Freunde dazu ein.
Schreibe in die Kommentare, ob und wann es dir gelungen ist heute.
We got this!
