I AM NOT AFRAID.
I am not afraid of the darkness,
Of what I find in the depths of my soul.
I am not afraid to peel back the layers,
And let it all unfold.
I am not afraid to be uncomfortable,
To feel the pain and let it go.
I am not afraid to speak my truth,
The things I haven’t said for too long.
I am not afraid to run,
Or stay and be strong.
I am not afraid of forgiveness,
Even when its hard.
I am not afraid of Love,
The kind that takes my breath away.
I am not afraid of my power,
To shine bright from within.
I am not afraid to make mistakes,
To fail time and time again. I am not afraid to be me,
Imperfect and flawed.
I embrace it because SELFLOVE will save us all. @mskellykristin
Embrace your fears, stop hiding and BE SEEN. The world needs you ❤️
My new obsession is Crunchy Thai Salad Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce. Packed full of flavour and goodness in every bite. These are my go to snack on busy days.
Crunchy Thai Salad Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce. * 1 baby cabbage outside leaves left whole and the inner leaves thinly sliced
* 2 cups of baby kale
* 1 1/2 cups red cabbage thinly sliced
* 1/2 cup red bell pepper thinly sliced
* 1/2 cup carrot shredded
* 1/4 cup coriander leaves
* 1/4 mint leaves * 1 green onion thinly sliced
* 1 large red chilli thinly sliced (optional if catering for kids)
* 1/2 cup peanut butter
* 3 tablespoons coconut cream
* 3 tablespoons coconut water * 3 tablespoons maple syrup
* 2 tablespoons lime juice
* 1 1/2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
* 1 1/2 tablespoons Tamari * 1 teaspoon Sesame oil
* 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger * 1 clove garlic * 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
Take the outer leaves of the cabbage and place a small quantity of each of the ingredients along the vein of the leaf. Wrap tightly, cut in half and tie with baking string. Some of my rolls in the pic are wrapped with rice paper because I ran out of cabbage. 🙈 To make the dipping sauce, combine all ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth. Pour into a dish and sprinkle with black sesame seeds. ✌🏻💗 #plantbased#veganofig#cleaneating#detox#healthy#vegan#eathealthy#healthyfood#healthylifestyle#healthyeating#healthykids#weightloss#instafitness#fitness#TheWeekOnInstagram#fresh#raw#rawvegan#rawrolls#veggieroll#myfoodontv#wellness#veggies#eatyourveggies#eatfresh#health#summer#thaisalad#peanutdippingsauce#thairolls
relationship status: it’s complicated!
remember, what works for someone else, probably won’t work for you. experiment with what works for you without beating yourself up💖 listen to your bodily signals and try not to restrict yourself- life’s too short and chocolate is too good. we can bring balance into all areas of our life when we bring awareness and presence into the equation.

Recently, I had the pleasure of facilitating a workshop for caregivers. I began the session by having each participant introduce themselves and list their various caregiving roles. I was deeply moved as each individual shared the family, friends, and pets that they provided support to in their day to day lives on top of their volunteer and work caregiving responsibilities. So many people relying on the 15 women that were assembled in the room! I felt honoured and humbled to be amongst such giving individuals.
The workshop focused on becoming mindful of the symptoms of caregiving fatigue so that we can respond with self-compassion; learning to comfort and care of ourselves in response to our suffering. One vibrant woman, I’ll call Betty, identified herself as someone who had very few caregiving responsibilities. Betty said that as a great-grandmother she felt lucky that most of the responsibility and the inherent stressors related to caregiving were behind her. Following the workshop, Betty approached me and let me know that her adult daughter was gravely ill. Betty said “I don’t know why I didn’t even think of this when you asked us at the beginning. I think I compartmentalize my feelings as a way to cope”. (Cont'd in comments 👇👇👇)
Go a mile deep and really dig in rather than spreading yourself thin and going a mile wide. Choose a whole day this week (if you can...otherwise an hour would be better than nothing!) to focus on what really matters to you rather than allowing yourself to get distracted by little things.
Relaxing after yesterday’s Sunday Class!
What are you most grateful for?
Yesterday I took some time out to really focus on what I’m grateful for in my life and what changes to incorporate this year to make sure I don’t lose sight of the bigger picture and enjoy every day despite any ups and downs.
2018 is going to be a great one!!
I’ve set some goals and am focused to smash them!! 💪👊
