Ultimate #TransformationTuesday from 1 year ago to now! Read below👇
This is NOT a transformation post talking about how much weight I lost. This is a transformation post highlighting that true health only comes through self-love💕
After I quit competing in bikini competitions, I went on a never-ending food escapade. At first, I was simply enjoying the all the foods that I couldn’t eat when I was pursuing fitness, but then things spiralled out of control. .
I found myself binge eating on anything and everything (even things I didn’t like!). I felt so miserable and hopeless because no matter how hard I tried, willpower and self-control kept failing me over and over again. To say that I was ashamed of myself is an understatement😔
This went on for about 8 months before I finally took initiative to heal my binge eating disorder. .
The turning point of my healing began when I started telling my body that I loved it. Every part of it. Every pound and fat roll and stretch mark and dimple and bloat and imperfection.
It felt a bit ridiculous at first to sit in front of the mirror and say out loud, “I love you stretch mark.”😂 I didn't believe any of the mumbo jumbo coming out of my mouth, but I guess my body did...
Next thing I knew I was treating myself better in all areas of my life. Letting go of toxic relationships, doing things that lit my soul on fire, getting rest, exercising in ways that felt good, and eating like I loved myself.
My body started FEELING it, so my mind started BELIEVING it!
So how do we love ourselves? We let go of the physical pressures and turn to the spiritual side of things. Self-love is quite the spiritual practice.

Some days are more challenging than others and it can be easy to get down or to project our bad mood on everyone around us instead of sitting with our feelings ourselves. But, doing our best to radiate positivity (even when it's really really tough) will ultimately make us feel better in turn.
yes, we are an Agency but today i’ll come forward and share a personal story with you. it takes place sometime last year, i was with my then best friend, getting high, as we talked about our current career choices. he was deeply dissatisfied: ‘bro, this isn’t what i want to do. my grades are good but i want to make music instead! music! but that’s not how you get rich, and i want to be mad rich bro, you feel me?’ i did not. my third eye was opening and i realized there’s this huge gap all of a sudden between us. i casually responded ‘bro, this doesn’t sound like a problem. all you have to do is raise your awareness’ and he said ‘what is awareness?’ the moment i hear that question, something heavily vibrates at the back of my head. i realized, i knew what it was but i couldn’t explain it! i blurted something out like ‘you and me, we are awareness. this weed right here, it is breathing (photosynthesis), it is aware of us too!’ i knew he didn’t get it because he replied ‘ok’ (😂) and my explanation was freestyled but still, i intuitively knew that a raise in awareness makes you more comfortable in yourself. you make amazing decisions. as for weed, i came to the conclusion that you do not need any kind of external force to Awaken. you have to trigger your internal force instead. so, what is awareness? the answer is in our bio 🎞
After a few months hiatus, here is the latest post in my leaving Christianity blog series. This one is about how I once got really high and saw Jesus riding a unicorn. It's about as weird as you can get. Link is in my profile/bio.
