A bakery we’re all employees our brain injury survivors!
.
At first I was concerned because “gluten ataxia” is a real thing (look it up on pub med or Google scholar). Ataxia is a cerebellar disorder that is often triggered by gluten. 🤔

Good thing they have gluten-free options!!
.
Its not perfect, but I love the name and I love how they’re changing lives for those with TBI!!!!
.
If you’re in PDX, go to Multnomah village and check this place out. I’d love to hear your thoughts. 🙂

Hᴏᴡ ᴛᴏ Cʀᴇᴀᴛᴇ Bᴇᴀᴜᴛʏ 🌹🖌️🖼️

The world can be so beautiful. 🌹

The world can be so ugly. 👹

And our perception has so much power. 💪

It is in the way we perceive and relate with the world where she shows us her beauty or her ugliness. 👀

When we express our perceptions in a way that outlines and highlights the beauty that we see… 🖼️

rather than by criticizing what we would like to see changed...

we allow others to see their own beauty and to recognize the aspects that are not congruent. 🤔💭

And when we see them in their light… When we see people as their beautiful and flattering selves…🌟

they are naturally pulled to live into that perception.

They are naturally pulled to evolve voluntarily. 💕

When we see people as the most flattering version of themselves, it is so much easier for them to simply step into an already established perception. 🦚

And when we see people as their flaws and imperfections… 👹
When we focus on people’s blemishes… 👺
They are either dragged down to that less flattering existence, or they are forced to dig themselves out of a negative perception before climbing any higher in our eyes. ⛏️👀

And your perception is largely a choice… a powerful choice... ✊

a choice that creates. 🖌️

I choose to see your beauty. 💖

I choose to see our beauty.💞

I choose to see you as the love and light of your infinite being. 💫

I choose to pull you up and not to drag you down. ☝️

When we give our attention to grows. 🌱

What you look for, you will find. 🔭

What you look for, you will create. 🖌️

May you find beauty in the world.

May you find The beauty that you are.

Stay empowered. ✊

Stay strong. 💪

Stay loving. 🙏

Keep rocking your life! 🤘

So how are you creating beauty in your life?

How are you rocking your life? 💪🙏🤘

How to Be Disease Free 🤒🕺💃

Disease is never healthy.🤒

And... health is not the opposite of disease.🥗

Disease can come from struggling to be healthy.😖

Dis-ease comes from Dis: lack, without, away from.🚫

A lack of what?🤔

A lack of Ease: comfort, tranquility, pleasure, wellbeing.🛀

It is hard to live an awesome life in a state of dis-ease.🕺

And it’s so easy when it’s easy.💃

Sometimes, life is made harder in order to protect a reputation, a story, a nation, a government, a family name, a certain amount of money, an aesthetic, a religion, etc.😕

In sociology, all of these can be called social constructs: things that people in society have agreed to give value to.

Many people contribute to a state of disease by placing the value on these constructs above the value of human beings. 👥

Not me!

I value your freedom.

I value your ease.

Freedom comes from the root “Pri” which means “to love.”

The evolution of this root has brought us “friends”: free members of one’s clan.

For me, there is nothing more important than the freedom and ease of each and every living individual.

No thing is more important to me than the freedom, ease, and life of human beings.

And any aesthetic…
Any religion...
Any object…
Any family name…
Any friendship, partnership, or any other relationship that values the construct over the freedom and the ease of the humans involved is contributing to dis-ease.

And dis-ease is never healthy.🤒

So what can you do to live in more ease?🛀😎

First, can you step away from unhealthy constructs that are valued above human freedom and ease?🤔

Destructive constructs don’t exist without the people who participate in them.

So your departure threatens the construct.
And because participants fortify it...
and participants defend it...
Your departure from the construct will be met with resistance from the participants of it.

This resistance can be unsettling…
It can be uncomfortable…
It can even be unsafe... for you and/or for the people you love.

Departing can be like breaking out of prison.

I’m here to help you to break free!✊

And I’m here to support that ease and freedom.🤜🤛

If you need help, don’t hesitate to reach out!🙏

How to Be Important 😔⛽😎

I recently wondered what exactly was meant by the phrase "be humble?" : 🤔

𝒉𝒖𝒎·𝒃𝒍𝒆
/ˈ𝒉ə𝒎𝒃ə𝒍/
having or showing a modest or low estimate of one's own importance.

The word "humility" comes from the latin word "humilité" which translates to "lowness, small stature; insignificance; baseness, littleness of mind." 🤔

The word "humiliate" comes from the same latin word. 😳

When we tell someone to be humble, we are telling them to have a lower view of their importance.

And when we are rewarded for thinking less of ourselves, we learn to be small and insignificant as opposed to bold and confident.

And because you know yourself better than anyone in the entire universe…

when people see your "modest or low estimate" of your own importance, they adopt the same view.

Well…

I’m here to tell you all that you are important! ✊

Even if you don’t see it.

Just think of everything you’ve accomplished in this lifetime.

Just the fact that you entered into this planet…
in the coolest kind of space suit in existence…
the fact that you were born a human demonstrates your importance. 🤱

But you don’t have to have to have a low view of your own importance.

You are also free to find evidence of your strength and importance and to build your confidence in yourself...

to build up your own self worth. 💪

And the more you look for evidence of your strength and importance, the more evidence you will find and the better you’ll get at building up your self worth.

The more you practice finding that evidence, the better you will get at filling yourself up...

the better you will get at filling yourself up with yourself!

At being you… at being ALL you! At being full of you… At being full of yourself! ⛽

And when you…
the most qualified expert on you…
knows your own importance...
your own self worth...

When you can truly believe in yourself...

and someone says "Well, aren’t you full of yourself!?!" 😠

You can turn and look at them with a big smile. 😊

Take a deep breath and feel your own life force in your heart. ❤️

And you can proudly say "Why yes… yes I am!"

Wishing you a beautiful week FULL of YOU!

𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝘁𝗼 𝗦𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗸 𝗩𝗼𝗹𝘂𝗺𝗲𝘀 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗪𝗼𝗿𝗱𝘀 📚 🤫

Our perception is a self-fulfilling prophecy. 🧙‍♂️

Judgment is something we can feel. 🔨

Silent criticism is visible. 🕵️‍♂️

The same goes for love, acceptance, and encouragement. 🤜🤛

What we give our attention to grows. 🌱

The lens we choose to see the world, ourselves, and others through is in our control.
🧐🌎

Whether we choose to judge, criticize, accept, or show appreciative curiosity, we add fuel to bring the perception in which we see someone… and the perception in which we see ourselves… into reality. 😯

Our perception speaks volumes without words! 📚 🤫

When we choose to perceive people and ourselves as their best selves (without expectation), it is much easier for them to live into that role. 👩‍🎤

We encourage them/ourselves to live into their/our best selves with our elevated perception. 🙌

There is no need to drag a judgemental perception behind them/us, and instead we are all pulled upwards. 📈

We can adjust our aperture to see others the way we'd like to see them or ourselves. 🦸‍♂️ 🦸‍♀️

Or... we can focus on what we don't like to see and, in doing so, attract our fears. 😱

When it comes to positively influencing the world, encouragement and acceptance beat criticism and judgment…
Every. Single. Time. ✊🙏🤘
