Here’s a cool write up about it:
Regrann from @jess_the_empress - • ✨🧘🏻♀️✨• Once you show up, exactly as you are, fully accepting yourself - you are complete. • A few years ago I opened up in front of complete strangers who held some of the most healing space I’d ever stepped into • That experience - the opportunity to be - was life changing. It was scary as fuck to put myself out there and once I did it didn’t matter if I was accepted because I realized my strength is vulnerability • Accepting yourself starts off feeling vulnerable and ends with empowerment • - #regrann
Discovery was preparing to launch until a visitor arrived.

Waking up and getting out of bed can be the hardest part of my day. Staying up and working through anxiety and the things that bring it on can be just as challenging. Everyday we are able to make it through a day, that is a victory. We are so brave for making it to today and getting through to this point and beyond. Never discredit how far you’ve come. 💪
I know it’s not #FridayIntroductions but I figured I’d introduce myself to my new followers here anyways. I’m Neha 👋🏼. I’m the CEO and Founder of GenLead|BelongLab
I happily took the road less traveled to get to this magical point in my career, and I love to help others develop a job situation that engages not just their minds, but also their hearts 💕
I also help orgs bust bias and build belonging through speaking, training, consulting, and writing ✏️ I’m passionate about exploring with wonder both the world and myself (mothering my two young children is a unique opportunity to do both!), preferably with either a glass of Willamette Pinot or craft coffee brewed by my husband close at hand

Being sober is not only about drugs and alcohol addiction.
It’s more than that, being sober can also be free from doing things we feel ashamed to admit. As good as we avoid to do those, there may be chances for us to fail.
When we do, the guilt and the thought that we dissapoint our loved ones haunt us.
Being human isn’t only focus on the good one about yourself, but also how you improve. Maintaining the bad one, so you can be better at it.
It’s a process, trust yourself that the more you work for it then you’ll achieve it. Be a better you.

I can relate to Demi Lovato's new single, "Sober" so much, it hurts.
It is not easy. It is at times so hard, I almost lose my mind, wandering around in my apartment, fists clenching, shoulders shaking, and heart pounding. I try to write, to sing, go for a walk. And it helps, for a little while. A little while.
Most days, I can keep it at a distance, the need, the urge and the want, to escape, to feel free. Sometimes the anxiety becomes so intense, like a tsunami, roaring waves. And in those moments I don't understand how or even why I am still sober. But I am. I am still sober, because I want to live, even though I am scared, of life, to be alive. I stay sober, even on those days when I curl up into a ball, fetal position, and all I want is to get high and be free of everything. But I don't, I stay sober.
Sometimes, I feel so alone, because I feel like people don't understand how hard it is. And sometimes I don't think I realize how strong I am. Managing to stay sober in the midst of storms, the storms inside, and the chaos around me, it is BRAVE, as brave as come. Facing my biggest fears, while staying sober, it is so scary. So hard. But I am brave for doing so. So I try to hold onto that, while I am waiting for the storms to pass, the rain to stop pouring and the wind to calm. I might get wet, but a little rain won't kill me. I know this. Because I get wet from the rain almost every day, and I am still alive.
You or someone you know has undoubtedly been affected by it. After two household names took their lives just weeks ago, I’m still trying to wrap my head around how, we as a culture, can preemptively get ahead of this epidemic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Logically, suicide doesn’t make sense. If you feel that bad, you just pick up the phone and ask for help, right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Suicidal depression doesn’t have that kind of rational thinking baked in.
It’s like telling an anorexic to just go eat a Big Mac. No bueno.
I recently wrote a blog post about depression, and my love for all things fashion and culinary. I’d love for you to check it out and comment below about how you have learned to cope with depression and/or support loved ones who suffer as well.
No feeling is final. A permanent and fatal solution to a temporary problem is never the answer. No matter what the lies swirling around in your head tell you, you’re never without hope and resources. Your story is so important. You matter NOW, not if...not when. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let’s keep broadening the conversation and seek out those who cannot help themselves due to the grip of depression. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And isn't that a freeing thought? That we don't have to force ourselves to feel differently, that we don't have to "man up"? We just have to feel terrified and TRY. That's it. We just have to be scared as hell and take that first step. Either way we'll live. We'll figure it out. We'll get more information for next time on what works, and what, perhaps, really, REALLY doesn't. Life is far too short to be stuck on the other side of "what if". Ready or not, you're ready. || #soulsparks

I just spent an hour at the Apple store, and they had to erase all of the photos & texts from my phone. 😭So, here is my first (and only) selfie from my newly reset phone. What a wild Friday night.

The dramatic drama you didn’t get to see last night. It was a finger lickin’ good night #TheBachelorette@bkoof

I got out of bed
on two strong legs.
It might have been
otherwise. I ate
milk, ripe, flawless
peach. It might
have been otherwise.
I took the dog uphill
to the birch wood.
All morning I did
the work I love.
At noon I lay down
with my mate. It might
have been otherwise.
We ate dinner together
at a table with silver
candlesticks. It might
have been otherwise.
I slept in a bed
in a room with paintings
on the walls, and
planned another day
just like this day.
But one day, I know,
it will be otherwise. -Jane Kenyon (via @barb_r)
