Finally I am coming to the conclusion that my highest ambition is to be what I already am. That I will never fulfill my obligation to surpass myself unless I first accept myself, and if I accept myself fully in the right way, I will already have surpassed myself.

allow myself to feel it,

I like this one too.

"You don’t have to look like an Under Armour mannequin to be an athlete. People probably think I don’t even try to work out, but I do. Just because you’re big doesn’t mean you can’t be an athlete. And just because you work out doesn’t mean you’re going to have a 12-pack."

Calming Jellyfish Jar: I have met many people who report being calmed by thoughts of the ocean/beach, and this an especially effective “calm jar” for them.  This goes well with the ocean breaths deep breathing technique I featured here.  This can also be a tool to teach about flexibility, going with the flow, and being adaptable in situations you don’t have control over.

Supplies: Large waterbottle (ex. smart water), 1 drop food coloring, water, plastic bag (like the kind you put veggies in at the grocery store)

Click here for a photo tutorial on how to create this jellyfish jar.  I haven’t tried adding corn syrup and glitter to one but that could potentially look really cool if it works.

Right now, I want each of you to try something interesting. There’s no trick to it.  It’s just a simple trick!

Maybe 51% or more of the self help bloggers or therapists that have never suffered from the behavior they seek to “fix”?
