It might feel weird, it might be hard, but speak these truths out loud to yourself today. 🤍
Some studies have shown that redirecting negative thoughts to positive self-talk may lead to lower levels of depression and anxiety, better coping skills, and overall better health!
Here’s to you. I hope you have a beautiful, wonderful weekend. ✨🖤 @pagesoftravel
✨MOOD | We hope everyone enjoyed celebrating and being celebrated yesterday. All the Mother's, Mother-Figures, Mentors, Care Givers, and Nurturers!
#mothersday can be difficult for those that long to be a Mother, that don't have a Mother, or don't have a relationship with their Mother. It's a time to show our love and gratitude to our Mom's, with so many of us that feel our own personal success has been inspired by, "MOM". For those that don't share in that experience, we see you. .
We love this image because it could represent #mothersday in so many different ways. Maybe it's Grandma, an Aunt, and older Sister, a Friend.
Who did you celebrate yesterday? Who is the person who gives you care, love and guidance in your life? Did you celebrate, yourself?? Do you provide care and love to another?

✨REPOST | "Isn’t this ✨ eeexxxaaacctttlllyyy ✨ what acceptance feels like? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Starts reluctantly. Continues and becomes a little bit easier. Then becomes a bold step into which we find ourselves living meaningfully even with the things we can’t change, the uncertainties, the bits of life that are just easier to push away. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hip hip hooray for anyone going into this week with acceptance and an open heart + mind 🙌🏻" - @pistachi.co
✨SHARING TIME | Say HELLO to RUBY , @rubydesantiago ! Ruby is actually on the official @nwagirlgang TEAM, (more details to share about that later). Today, Ruby is sharing a little piece of herself with all of you. 💛
"Time to chat about the dishes in the sink, y’all. How are you holding up right now?
I don’t think a lot of us are okay- my world is literally falling apart- and nothing feels steady. Unfortunately, this pandemic has reached many of our front doors & we see how ill-equipped we’ve been in the face of tragedy. My world started spinning out of control a few years ago & it took a lot for me to reach out and get help. My entire foundation shook before I acknowledged that I wasn’t going to outrun, out cry, out think my way through depression + anxiety (or diabetes for that matter). I’m really fortunate my community rallied and continues to show up when I holler. We don’t talk about mental health enough. We don’t ask or share our struggles. We don’t talk of the days spent in bed agonizing over future plans. We expect people to push through or get over trauma.
The stigma is real and prevalent in communities of color.
➡For now, I’m here. I’m ready. Let’s talk about “it.” - @rubydesantiago ⬅
