You will never always be motivated, so you must learn to be disciplined🖤 I have days, where I’m not motivated to hit the gym and would rather stay in bed. I also have goals to hit and want to achieve those goals; so this is where discipline comes in. I don’t always want my meals and I lack sleep sometimes; trust me, I want pizza, burgers and fries but I value those cheat meals (in moderation). So, my off days are spent catching up on sleep, meal prepping and training clients to help them achieve their goals. All while trying to maintain that work/life balance. It’s not easy but I enjoy it🙌🏼 A little over 9 weeks out from my show. I’m ready to do the damn thing🤘🏼 #fitfam #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgoals #fitnesslifestyle #fitandinked #gymmotivation #gymshark #gymlife #gymrat #tuesdayvibes #tuesdaymotivation #redhair #tattooedgirls #inkedgirls #exercise #happy #chicago #dallas

I don’t know how to cope anymore. I’m shaking while typing this. I had my first psychotic break 4 years ago and have been plagued by somatic delusions ever since then. I’ve been to countless hospitals, ERs, doctors, etc for them to tell me I’m psychically healthy. I don’t feel that way. I feel sick and diseased. I feel like I’m going to get others sick. Especially my friends. Apparently that’s a delusion. Every bodily sensation translates to death or disease in my mind and the paranoia is unbearable. I don’t know what to do anymore. Medications don’t help much and I’m on 10 pills a day. I can’t live this way forever. It’s a disgusting way to live with no real happiness and just unnecessary fear all the time. . . . . . #schizophrenia #schizophrenic #schizo #schizophreniaawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthstruggles #endthestigma #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #stigmafree #schizoaffective #anxietyawareness #suicideprevention #suicideawarness #mentallyill #immentallyillandidontkill #psychosis #chicago

I am nobody special, I am simply a woman who has been through a few difficulties and I learned by trial and error and am just here to tell you the truth and provide guidance to those willing to rediscover their purpose in life. Since 2015, I have been devoting my life to mental health advocacy and continuing my studies so that I may offer individuals who are at their wit’s end and considering suicide with simply another alternative other than taking their own life. For the past 5 years I have been crafting my techniques of healing and sharing it with others the best that I can because I am confident everyone is capable of creating a life worth living. I love helping others to see the beauty of life and offer my expertise, knowledge, and energy to those willing to accept my help. I do not claim to possess any special gifts, but since I was a very young child I have always been very spiritually minded and believed in a higher power. There’s nothing else more in this world I’d rather be doing than providing others a sense of comfort and peace. It has never been an easy journey for me, as I have faced many difficulties and encountered much adversity in my life; but As Joan of arc once quoted,” I was built for this.” I believe What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger. God only gives us what we can handle, so here I am now present day choosing to show my battle scars to others in an effort show others they can heal too....🌟✨ #woundedhealer #therapistintraining #selfhealer #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalwellness #suicidepreventionawareness #healer #empath #aquarius #mentalhealthprofessional #chicago

𝐀𝐫𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐚 𝐂𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐲 𝐁𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐬 𝐅𝐚𝐧? 𝐃𝐫𝐨𝐩 𝐚 🐻 𝐛𝐞𝐥𝐨𝐰! Chicago's birthday may have come and gone, but we're still celebrating for two more days! On Wednesday we showed off our Cubs inspired shirt, so now we're switching seasons with our Country Bears / Chicago Bears mashup. I've been a Bears fan my whole life (should I share some cute baby photos rocking a Bears outfit?) but in college I was lucky enough to work a Soldier Field which really upped my knowledge of football and the history of Da Bears. If you swipe you can see the details a little bit closer. On a Bears jersey one sleeve has GSH written on it, for George Stanley Halas, AKA Papa Bear. He was the founder & owner of the Bears. For ours we put WDW (should we offer a DLR version too? TDR? WED? Let me know!) on one sleeve, and just for fun I went with 1971 on the other sleeve instead of just stripes. The Bears are also known as the Monsters of the Midway, so it seemed like a no brainer that our Country Bears would be the Musicians of the Midway. This is one of my favorite mashups and something I wear every game day. Are there other teams you'd like to see represented? Let me know below! Bear Down (from the ceiling), Country Bears! 🐻

SISTER ROSETTA THARPE 🖤 ——————————————————- Taken from NPR - Rock 'n' roll was bred between the church and the nightclubs in the soul of a queer black woman in the 1940s named Sister Rosetta Tharpe. She was there before Elvis, Little Richard and Johnny Cash swiveled their hips and strummed their guitars. It was Tharpe, the godmother of rock 'n' roll, who turned this burgeoning musical style into an international sensation Perhaps it's no surprise that Tharpe was always surrounded by music growing up. Born Rosetta Nubin in Arkansas to Willis Atkins and Katie Bell, Tharpe came from a family of religious singers, cotton pickers and traditional evangelists. She picked up the guitar at four years old, and at the age of six she accompanied her mother to perform with a travelling evangelist troupe in churches around the South. By the mid-1920s, Tharpe and her mother settled in Chicago, where they continued performing spiritual music. As Tharpe grew up, she began fusing Delta blues, New Orleans jazz and gospel music into what would become her signature style. By the time she was thirty, Tharpe had survived two marriages (including one to a preacher she married at age 19) and various relationships with both women and men. Although she was open about her sexuality within the industry, she kept this secret from the public. Tharpe eventually met her partner, Marie Knight, when they teamed up with their hit "Up Above My Head." The duo began touring by themselves (along with their band) and started taking control of their own business decisions. They toured, collaborated and performed as two queer black women in a relationship in the late 1940s; it was a radical act. While Tharpe has historically been overlooked in rock 'n' roll history, she has, in recent years, been rightfully celebrated as a woman who broke every norm, and has a central place in the Turning the Tables canon. She was a gospel singer at heart who became a celebrity by forging a new path musically, a queer woman who toured with her partner and a fearless black artist who was in love with crafting a new sound.Tharpe influenced a generations of musicians. ————————————————— Celebrate Black History 🖤
