Many times when we feel something, we believe it to be true. And in certain instances, this is a really good thing. Trusting your gut can be the difference between life and death. However, if you find yourself talking down about you inside your head, you may need a reminder that feelings are not facts. Just because you feel like a bad friend because you forgot your buddy's birthday, does not mean that you are a bad friend. It just means you messed up. You're human. You need to own what happened, apologize, make it right, and move on. We have a tendency to interpret negative self talk as a concrete feeling/thought. Please do yourself a favor and break this habit. One way to do that is to find evidence to back yourself up. If you say, "man, I'm so stupid" after you fail a test, ask yourself, "what's the evidence?" The failed test, yes. Anything else? Maybe a few things. Now challenge!! "Do I have any evidence that I'm NOT stupid?" If you look hard enough, I would guess there's more support for this claim than the other. Feelings aren't facts. Say it again. Feelings aren't facts. #hykelyfe #bestlyfe #feelingsarentfacts #feelings #facts #selftalk #positivity #challenge #evidence #mentalhealth #mentalillness #counseling #therapy

A support system is one of the most important things you can build for yourself. Whether it's family, friends, professionals, online communities, people with similar hobbies/interests, clubs, groups, etc., make sure you have some people to lean on when you cannot face the sun. #HykeLyfe #bestlyfe #support #important #family #friends #leanonme #sun #sunflower #mentalillness #mentalhealth #counseling #therapy

Saw this quote. Loved this quote. Relationships take effort. Don't blame your partner for your refusal to work towards a better relationship, every day. Even when things suck. Even when you hate them. If you both allow your effort to be the most prominent thing in your relationship, your relationship will be the priority and will thrive. For those of you in the back: YOUR RELATIONSHIP SHOULD BE THE PRIORITY. Not you. Not your friends. Not your family. Your relationship. This doesn't mean you don't matter or that you don't put self care and yourself first in health, both mental and physical. This doesn't mean you don't go out with your girlfriends or have guys nights. This doesn't mean you isolate yourself from family and lose who you are. I'm not talking about abusive relationships. I'm talking about healthy ones. Healthy ones where your partner encourages you to have your own life and take care of yourself because your partner puts your relationship first. Get it? Put in the effort. It'll be worth it. #HykeLyfe #bestlyfe #effort #relationship #goals #relationshipgoals #refusal #first #priority #thrive #selfcare #mental #physical #isolation #abuse #goout #healthy #healthyrelationships #counseling #therapy #mentalillness #mentalhealth

Don't underestimate the power of your own resiliency. There are so many things that have happened in my life that I wasn't ready for. But, I was obviously built for it. Take a look back at your life. Find peace in your strength. Be shocked by what you're built to withstand. You're amazing. #HykeLyfe #bestlyfe #resilient #ready #built #peace #strength #shock #amazing #counseling #therapy #mentalillness #mentalhealth

Be yourself. Wholly and fully. What they hate in you is missing in them. Keep shining! How many of you have haters or people who make jealous comments about something great that you possess? Comment below. Let's shine together! Sometimes people tell me that I'm too much. Sorry not sorry. I have fun, I'm loud, and people are drawn to light and love!

Don't forget to be lovely people! No matter what hardships we come across, you are not alone. We are all in this together. Your feelings and experiences are relative to your life. We all know pain and suffering. We all know lost love and inadequacy. We can build strength from community, happiness from friendship, and peace from love. #HykeLyfe #bestlyfe #smile #together #community #youarenotalone #alone #lovely #love #hardship #feelings #experience #pain #suffering #inadequacy #strength #happiness #friendship #peace #mentalillness #mentalhealth #counseling #therapy

Fearless doesn't mean the same thing for everyone. Make an appointment. Go skydiving. Learn to meditate. Talk to the cute girl. Get clean. Travel somewhere new. Let love in again. Wear the red lipstick. Be honest. Apply for the job. Tell him how you feel. Take the first step. You got this.

I saw a post of social media today asking "cougars" (women over 35) (When did 35 become a cougar? Beats me!) to share photos of themselves along with their age. For the most part people were loving and complimenting all the photos. Until I saw one in particular. A woman posted a photo of herself saying she was 40. Another woman then commented "you look 50". What in the actual f**k is the point of something rude like that!?! She then went on to tell this woman she looked like she was on drugs. Clearly this woman was upset as she began to defend herself, with dignity, by telling the troll that women don't have to put each other down anymore and that it's ok to lift one another up. 👏 I understand the internet. I understand that people are jerks. But, I'm here to remind you. Never underestimate the power of your mouth. In an age where "pictures or it didn't happen" is widespread, don't forget how important your word is. The mouth should have three gatekeepers. Always ask yourself if what you are speaking is the truth. Be kind above all else. And don't ever hurt someone's feelings if it's not necessary. These are not hard rules. We can be better. #hykelyfe #bestlyfe #socialmedia #gatekeeper #true #kind #necessary #word #sticksandstones #troll #power #straighteneachotherscrown #empower #lift #internet #beauty #mentalhealth #mentalillness #counseling #therapy

Hey everybody, sorry I've been gone for a couple weeks. I had an issue with my Adobe account and it deleted all my logos so I couldn't use them! But, I'm back up and running and ready to come back with more inspiration. I was in the middle of a kindness segment, but now that it's been a little while I figured I'd change it up a bit and send some empowerment. So, here are some empowering affirmations. I know I've spoken about affirmations before and hot damn do they work! They help manifest good things in your life. They help you feel better about yourself. They help you become the boss you always wanted to be. Believe it and it will happen. #HykeLyfe #bestlyfe #inspiration #affirmation #affirmations #inspire #kindness #kindnessmatters #kind #empower #empowerment #sorryiwentmissing #mia #mentalillness #mentalhealth #counseling #therapy

If you ask me, this is the most important question you can ask yourself. It helps you figure out where to start in the journey of betterment. It answers everything you need to know about someone else. Integrity is what defines us. Be the person you want to be when the door closes behind you. Character lasts throughout the night when the lights dim down and you're all alone.

Nothing is as rewarding as sharing with others. In fact, it is statistically proven to increase happiness. Obviously we all need to ensure that our needs are covered. However, once this accomplished, abundance tastes best with others.

Lead. See a mountain and encourage others to climb it. 'We can do it' is not the attitude of the naive, it's the attitude of a leader. Positivity and kindness have inspired good people to be great, lifted people in dark times to see the light, and dragged broken people into wholeness. Yes, those things can be accomplished on your own, but isn't it so much better to share, learn, grow, and be together. Inspire others. Encourage those around you.

I know some of you are going through some sh*t. And one thing that I'm sure we always heard, but never understood, is that life gets harder. Throughout life people will do some really terrible things. Life will knock you down and drag you around. Forgiveness, as we've spoken about before, can be for you, can be for others, and it doesn't mean you condone what happened. Any which way forgiveness comes, just remember, it is never for the weak. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong. It takes empathy and understanding. It takes compassion and humility. Forgiveness is an act of kindness that many cannot complete. Kindness matters. #HykeLyfe #bestlyfe #kind #bekind #kindness #kindnessmatters #forgive #forgiveness #strength #strong #attribute #empathy #understanding #compassion #humility #mentalillness #mentalhealth #therapy #counseling

We have a tendency to look for the bad in others, the things that annoy us, the things that turn us off. But, in all reality, we are all very complex beings. There is good in all of us, connection that's possible with everyone. Maybe it doesn't lead to a relationship, or even a friendship. Maybe it just leads to a positive interaction in your day. And couldn't we all use more of those??

I've spoken about forgiveness before in regards to others, but today I want to talk about how important it is to forgive yourself. We all make mistakes and sometimes it can be really difficult to forgive ourselves for those mistakes. Whether it was accepting treatment we didn't deserve, treating someone in a way that was less than pleasant, harming yourself, etc. We have problems and then we have the lingering problem that is judging itself for the problem we have. Why are we doubling down on our struggles!?! Give it up. It's time to move forward, seize the future, and be kind to ourselves.
