“ All real living is meeting” once said M.Buber. It’s been a lot about #connection these days. From connecting to yourself, to connecting to others, connecting to situations, connecting to our own past and maybe future, sometimes connecting to our path all along. How we manage to connect to ourselves when everything is fine and especially when we are going through bad times? The quality of our life is defined by how effectively we manage to find the way back to our hearts, to our stories in dark moments. 🌅
When we talk about self-care and doing things that make us feel better, often these are things that connect us to our inner child. These are things that bring us joy, peace, calmness and take us back to the present moment. . These can be things like: ✨colouring or painting ✨doing a puzzle ✨writing or journaling ✨singing or dancing ✨cooking or baking . . These are just some examples of how we engage in creativity and connect to our inner child but there are so much more! If you are feeling anxious, afraid, or frustrated, connect inward and ask yourself how you can settle yourself down. So why is this so important? . . When we ask ourselves these questions and take the time to listen, we are no longer distracting ourselves with the outside world. We are connecting to ourselves and recognizing we have what we need to help ourselves get out of the state we are in. . . What have you been doing or what will you be doing to connect with you today?! 🤍

What is the universe trying to teach me right now?✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An important question to ask ourselves right now. Is it patience? Communication? Peace? I think each of us are learning our own unique lesson. Maybe you've figured it out, maybe you're still searching for your answer. Either way, stay curious, stay positive, stay learning💛
This is my thought about MCO where I think everyone just need to be considerate and patient for this covid19 to blow over and then we all can go out again and I can have teh ais ikat tepi at suraya kampung baru. 🤙 I also think there is a beauty in that where people are finding different ways to connect with each others and respond to all messages come in and no more bluetick left behind. 😅 Im really scared if i anyone yg i kenal suddenly message "hi guys, im positive covid" i hope all of us can keep away from this disease. Amin. Because when everyhting over i just wanna meet everyone and say i love you all and i dont think im ready to lose everyone of you. 😢 Don't lose hope, when we lose hope everyone's like mental state is going to be affected as well. Keep mental states like up as well. 🧠 Stay safe everyone 😘 #corona #selftaught #patient #connection #love #hope #mental #staysafe #malaysia #worldwide
Deep gratitude is my key to a happy life🙏 It gives me the energy to stay positive also in difficult times. It helps me to focus on the things in life that matters most, like my family, our health & wellbeing and a life full of joy and happiness❤️ Yes sometimes life is not easy, but when we bring our attention to all the good things in life and our world, we are able to improve our mental state. Just take a moment and go inside. Check in with yourself, listen to your inner nature and be grateful for what you’ve got. Listen and observe what comes up, observe what you think and what you feel? Be grateful that you are alive today☀️🙏💙 What are your most powerful trick to be happy and love life? #deepgratitude #connection #love #beautifulife #innerpeace #justbreath #energy #inspiration #healing #feelingblessed #positivevibes #mindfulness #selflove #happiness #freespirit
In September I said ‘Hello!’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a teacher, we are now heading back after spring break into the big unknown. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s not easy. For anyone. It’s sad, really. And one of the biggest thing we’ve been discussing is how it is going to be so incredibly important to re-develop and build a sense of community and belonging after the amount of time that has passed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Two weeks, a month, 3 months. No matter what the amount of time passed, it will not be a ‘Goodbye’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Each day that I walked into work last week without greeting smiling faces at the door sucked, big time. It felt like my purpose had been stripped. Like what the heck was I supposed to be doing? A lot of what happens in education in the early years stems from interacting and connecting. Learning from one another. Sharing stories and information. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am extremely grateful to be in my position and I cannot wait to get back to my students and their wellness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #education #wellness #teacher #hello #goodbye #love #ilovemyjob #students #children #happiness #springbreak #backatit #connection #connecting #community #belonging #purpose #intentions #educate #learning #mindful #mindfulness #peace
| WILL YOU? | As many of you know, April 22nd is Earth Day and now more than ever is our time to come together as the people of our planet to BE the solution. We’re all in this together. We all get to take part in creating our future. We all have the opportunity to put differences aside, let to “old way” of doing things die and bring into light the “new way”. A way of doing things differently to lay a foundation for us ALL to thrive and work together. Hostility, hate, resentment, selfishness is the past. Our future can and will be so much brighter for each one of us, but you must step into that. No one will create it for you. No one owes you. You get to step into it yourself and we get to step into it together. This is our time to create a world in which we’re all proud to be here. Join us for this free virtual event. We’re opening the conversation to create a solution. With meditation, speakers and an open forum we want you to be part of it with us. Go to UnifyHumanity.org to sign up. More information will be sent out as we get closer. We’re on this planet together, it’s time we work towards one goal to Unify Humanity for the World. Carpe diem, Team Unify Humanity
Poor connection... . . . Another for the #FSchallenge , one more today and I’m caught up, this prompt was “connection” 💻
🔥FINDING YOUR CERTAINTY DESPITE THE CHAOS ❇️ —————————————————————— ✊MISSION the pillar of certainty we will all benefit from in these chaotic times.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A connection to our mission is more important than ever in order to stay on our inner path.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yes, for the most part the majority of life right now is uncertain and I’ll hazard a guess that for most of us, our ways to meet our needs for certainty have been blown out of the water! 🤯 Causing anxiousness, overwhelm, panic, anger, sadness, depression and a whole host of other mental and emotional challenges. A solution I truly believe can help settle these mental and emotional storms is reconnecting to... 🔥MISSION🔥 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Despite all the chaos, change, uncertainty, goals being tampered with, visions made blurry, ambitions being thrown out, the core mission doesn’t have to and shouldn’t have to change! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your mission is the core fuel that will absolutely drive you over, under, around or through any obstacles that meet you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The current challenges give us all the opportunity to further connect to our unique mission. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And so remember this, anything outside of us changing right now is a vehicle to help bring the mission to life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The changes outside of us all will not steal our mission or our core purpose(not possible ) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nope, it does however, invite us to ask how else we will bring these missions to our world and wether we were even doing so prior to all the current changes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 😎So let’s get a little less fluffy and a little more practical, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ❓QUESTION: What is your mission? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are not clear on this play with the Qs below, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Supporting questions = •What lights you up?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •What do you feel compelled to bring into your world?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •What injustice do you observe that you know you have a solution to that you could share or share even more⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •What do you want people to say about you when it’s all said and done (What did you offer, how did you impact the world? ) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fuel for thought people. Would love to receive your answers.
I am so incredibly grateful for these people!! Since we can’t see each other in the flesh... we hopped on a zoom call to be able to workout together... like we normally do every Sunday! It is so important for us to stay connected during these times... it hasn’t been easy; but because of these people, I know all will be well. So thankful for the love, support, inspiration and motivation these people provide! We. Are. The.

My dad reflecting on our current situation through art. #contemplative
A new week is starting and how will you care for yourself during these times? Many of you have joined me for the last 2 weeks doing our #homepractice #ZOOM yoga style. It is different, but this yoga still works. It is helping all of us feel some normalcy, balance, clarity, ease, peace, #acceptance , #connection , and love. The yoga is a great tool to guide us towards our true self. Think of the class as an Introduction to Self-Realization. 🕉 Join me and the #yogababy Vyara 💖 for classes on Monday 11am, Wednesday 9am and Friday 11am. And Join Aiko for a guided #meditation on Monday and Friday 9:30am. ✅create zoom account ✅login to zoom meeting id 3585159967 ( all yoga ) 663445800 ( meditation monday ) 863113401 ( meditation friday ) ✅find a good space, clear, clean and maybe a small space but enough to hopefully lay down completely (smaller space can warm up faster ) ✅turn on a space heater, maybe humidifer ✅wear some layers ✅share your light ⭐️ 🌟 ⭐️ Reach out if you have any questions. Share this with your friends and family so we can all practice together.

What is it that you need but don't dare to admit to anyone, not even to yourself? One mega motivation within this challenge ,which will give you guidance to the above challenge is too always believe that parenting is a journey of transformational growth and this growth is for the parent, more than for the child. You believe there are no bad children, only children who are having a hard time. You believe no matter what situation you’re in – empathy will help. You believe that good parenting means striving for connection. You believe that connected parenting does not come naturally, but demands intense levels of commitment and deliberate practice. Look at the above and be intentional in all you pursue. InshaAllah . . . . #samaahealth #connection #parenting #dailygram #meaningful #stayhome #togetherathome #staysafe #instagood #instadaily #Instagram
In Buddhist teachings, any form of attachment leads to suffering. Understand that nothing is permanent and detach from any sort of expectations you may hold even with your Self. This will leave you in a more freeing state allowing the universe to unfold in divine time. Take a look inward now. Ask yourself, is there anything I am holding onto? What can I do to release this attachment into the vast ocean of the cosmic universe? Do not try to grasp onto anything. Simply let go.

Last week we truly enjoyed the union of our group intention and support coming from everyone. Join us this week for a 15 minute LIVE group meditation 🙏
Often I hear people say I know______ wasn’t my fault, but I still feel like it was; or I know I’m doing the best I can but I still feel not good enough. . The way we feel about ourselves can be so much deeper than what we logically know to be true in our heads. . Because of this; many times in therapy we focus on making a connection between these two parts of ourselves so we can stop the disconnect of knowing vs. feeling. . I encourage you today to think of one way you can begin to connect your head and your heart.
“I don’t wanna live like this but I don’t wanna die” #vampireweekend #harmonyhall We are all in this together. Quarantine isn’t fun but let’s do what we’ve gotta do. @pasxalisgelias sends me pics of his beautiful country keeping my hope going and looking forward to Athens. In a time of isolation reach out to each other more than ever! Just do it 6ft apart

Head to toe POSITIVE training. 👉Sometimes, it’s hard to find the positive aspect of this crazy times but how about trying the 4-steps positivity mental and body work out? YES! ✔️Fuel your mind with positivity, your body with energetic home work out, your soul with love and self-love and your closet with bright colors. #WeAreInThisTogether __________ #mystyleforecast #menouspiti #reboot #bodyandmind #creativity #connection #mindfullness #nomakeup #ootd #motd #casual #fashionstyle #saturday #evening #crazytimes #makethemostofit #allofus #nevergiveup #igdaily
The current state of our life is unprecedented and unpredictable. There is no way for it to look perfect! We’ve never been through an epidemic and social isolation of this magnitude. Collectively, we are figuring this out together! Parents of young children, you are uniquely challenged and I see you. You are strong and will get through this with a new appreciation for life and family on the other side! Whenever that may be. . If you’re spending all of your energy just getting through your day, that’s ok. No one was fully prepared for this new way of life. No two families are the same and if you catch yourself comparing your day with someone else, please scroll on/unfollow/turn off your phone. There is no ‘right way’ of doing life right now. I’m here if you need support or a space to share. ✨❤️✨ . Tag a mama/dad/grandparent/caregiver who could use some support too! . . . . . . . . . . . #transformingtoddlerhood #parentingchallenges #parentingjourney #toddlerlife #toddler #raisingtoddlers #raisingtinyhumans #raisingkids #reaction #reactionmeme #love #parents #connection #parentinghumor #happyfriday #toddlermama #toddlermilestones #mommyandme #gentleparenting #respectfulparenting #letthembelittle #covıd19 #parentingsupport #toddlers #unschooling #parentsmemes #parentingtoddlers #stayathomemomlife #workingfromhome #workingmomlife
“All tension requires attention” - Dr Gabor Maté 🌪 . When you notice tension in your body, pay attention. See if you can get interested in it as if it were someone you loved trying to tell you something. If the tension itself could speak, what would it say? How old is it? What does it need? See if you know what it needs to hear. 🌊 When we don’t pay attention to the tension, we suppress feeling and disconnect from parts of ourselves. This leads to depression. It can also lead to physical illness if we don’t acknowledge its presence at all: particularly feelings of anger. Anger isn’t a feeling that many of us know how to be with comfortably.... but I would go so far as to say it is our most important feeling. It is our boundary. Pay attention & find ways to express it safely and not suppress it. Otherwise you will explode externally or internally💥 #therapy #gabormate #trauma #tension #innerchild #innerchildwork #internalfamilysystems #whenthebodysaysno #peterlevine #besselvanderkolk #spaceinme #healing #payattention #lockdown #covid_19 #growth #connection #traumawork
How it all started…. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that The Everyday Kitchen used to be called “The Ginger Snap?” Haha 😂🤣 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 2011, Mark and I did a fundraiser for a friend who was taking some training in the states and we wanted to support her. We thought instead of just giving her money, we could take the small amount that we had, buy ingredients, and sell baking to multiply what we were able to give her. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We worked every evening all month after work, filling the orders that came in for the fundraiser and we ended up being able to triple the initial money we had to give her. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After the fundraiser was over and we weren’t raising money anymore, we decided to make the little business “official” and so it became “The Ginger Snap” (because my signature item back then was a ginger snap sandwich cookie with lemon cream cheese icing and everyone loved them...they are delish! ) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fast forward to TODAY, and this week you have blown us way with your support. Together we’ve been able to multiply what we have and give it back to the people in our community who need it most right now. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s not just Mark and I or our staff...but it’s all of us together that are able to work together to bring hope to our community. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✨Here’s our challenge to you today:✨ * Can you find something, ANTHING, that you can do or use to brighten someone else’s day so that it becomes a ripple effect for the people around us? • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It doesn’t take much to make small changes around us.... and we never know what effect they will have ❤️ . . . 📷 @kassia .photo
All dressed up with nowhere to go? That was kind of me last night. I didn’t want to spend the 17th night in a row in sweatpants, but also did not want to commit to actually wearing pants with a zipper & a button. I compromised with myself and put on some earrings, non toxic makeup, and chilled in my comfies. As an extrovert, it’s been interesting to not see people “in real life”, and physically hug my friends and family. Ive been adapting, and figuring out ways to feed my soul every single day. For a few days in the beginning of all of this, I got lazy, hair washing was bleak, I watched wayyyy too much news, and started to try and control the future which of course is unknown and uncontrollable. That was not fun. I woke the F up pretty quickly when I started to not feel like myself. I’m making a mega effort to create the fun at home, and it’s been pretty nice, simple, and creative. I spoke with a friend this week who said “it looks like your on vacation, just saying”. And I laughed because I’ve actually never worked harder. I’m working with clients both new and seasoned ALL day (which I LOVE - this gives me life and I’m so grateful ), taking an advanced biochemistry course 🧬 👩🔬, and working on several exciting new projects for my business and consulting for other businesses as well. So I’m definitely not on vacation, but I’m working to create peace, ease, and fun at some point in my everyday life. I call these the sweet moments. I make it a point to document and share these moments, to spread the message that these things are still possible to create and experience. These are the moments that make us feel like ourselves. The ones that connect us to ourselves and to others. The moments that bring joy, a smile, a deep breathe (hello at home yoga @lyonsdenpy - love you ), and make you feel like YOU. How are you connecting to yourself today? Happy Saturday - love you. ❤️ #saturday #weekend #reset #connection #love #selfcare #selfie #entrepreneur #ease #yogi #yogini #nutritionist #functionalmedicine #functionalnutrition #sagharbor
