We all have our own goals and aspirations in life that we work towards. On top of our everyday life, like jobs, relationships, and everything else, it may not always be on our mind to just be compassionate towards others who may be struggling right in front of us. •
Episode 1350 with Benjamin Hardy discusses the power of being genuinely honest and compassionate for those around you, and how far it can really go: "You Can Do More Good Than You Think."

Can we talk about WANT vs NEED.
Often in life I have played it small. Ya know, not admitted how much I liked make up, dresses, and heals because that'd be too girly. Other times not told the stories of 4-wheeling and being so covered in mud that when you were done you had to shower off in the hose outside twice before every going inside to take another shower.
My name is Alisha and I love big hair, getting my nails done, and wearing make up. Over my 30+ years people will always say, you don't NEED all that stuff to make you pretty and I'm finally saying what I should have said all those times instead of 'thank you'.... I KNOW I don't need it, I WANT it.
Just because people like and want certain things doesn't automatically make them insecure because they WANT the things they like. Have I worn make up before because I felt like I had to, sure, I went through those insecurities on the way to finding myself and being comfortable in my own skin. Learning to identify my desire for something helped get me there. If I just wanted something great. I saw it, I liked it, I bought it. 🎵 If I dug around inside and I was doing something like working out, doing my make up, spending money on clothes I didn't actually need because I felt like I NEEDED to/it because of insecurity or self loathing. The ANSWER IS NO. I won't go to the gym, I won't wear the make up, and I won't by the clothes. Instead, I'll sit with those feelings and work on WHY I feel like I need something to "make me better" when the truth is, I am better just the way I am.
Do I NEED @hairbyjilee to give me amazing mermaid extensions to be pretty? NO.
Do I WANT them? HELL YES I DO.
मैं वास्तव में विश्वास करता हूं कि हम जो कुछ भी करते हैं और जो भी हम पूरा करते हैं वह एक उद्देश्य के लिए हमारे रास्ते में डाल दिया जाता है। कोई दुर्घटना नहीं हैं; हम सभी शिक्षक हैं - यदि हम उन पाठों पर ध्यान देने को तैयार हैं जो हम करते हैं I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we're all teachers - if we're willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door.
My eyes are the windows to my soul… and mine is happy cause I laugh a LOT🤣... Thanks to my friends and family!
But that means the skin around my eyes needs something powerful to take care of it!!! How am I supposed to sort through the hundreds of options online and in stores, and trust that I’ve found something good for me that actually makes a difference?! I’m all about a fun user-experience AND great results, and this product is a little moment of luxury every morning and night. Every girl needs her faithful eye cream and I’M IN ❤️️! I think it's even helped keep my extremely sensitive eyes from getting irritated and red from my allergies as in the before pic!!💞 #hustleandglow#selflove#eyewrinkles#wrinklefree#undereyebags#skincare#skincareproducts#darkeyecircles#ilovetheseproducts#laughoutloud#laugh#bekind
Whether you are in the darkest hour or just coming out , this is the journey that leads you to finding joy within your soul. You are as large as the whale, encompassing the beauty to love the masses, go with the flow, and to own your power.
You are free in this life. Whenever you find yourself between a rock and a hard place, know that you’re being moved to a higher frequency.
Embrace the diversity of life and every emotion. Celebrate the fact that you are loved.
You are so loved, as deeply as the ocean goes.
“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek” — Joseph Campbell
Show up. It’s hard. It’s tiring. Sometimes you wonder if it’s even worth it. It’s hotter than hell, or ice cold. But show up for yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here’s to me forever trying to show up and meeting the boys in blue along the way yesterday @f45_training_onetreehill . I am so proud at how far I’ve come! My head is still quite fuzzy today, I’m still not feeling like my bubbly self but these photos made me smile. I’m strong. Physically, and mentally. #SpeedWobbles ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
