Hello friends! Here is something that I'm so deeply grateful to share with you all.
My friend Brett and his fiancee Mari, from Your Life of Impact, interviewed me for a podcast last week....
Here it is!! I'm talking about my journey with iRest and my struggles with anxiety and depression.
I really hope you can find time to listen and let me know what you think!
Please reach out if you are suffering with anxiety or depression and share with anyone that you might feel may benefit from hearing and knowing that there is help out there. Please don't struggle.
Much love Gerlinde xx #irest #irestgoldcoast #irestmeditation #irestguidedyoganidra #innerpeace #innerresource #mytimetoshine #mypassion #mindfulness #breathing #presentmoment #calming #naturalremedy #wellness #mentalstrength #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #gratitude #overcominganxiety #overcomingfear #overcomingdepression #beachtime #surfinggirl #surfingmumma #surfinglife #gerlindeomocean

Alrighty it's only late in EST!! 😂
#workoutwednesday Video for my peeps that love them. I miss posting them for every Workout! I'm in Week 4 y'all and I didn't die from pushing play with Shaun T. You know the best part about this workout... The fact that I get to work out at home and it's only 25 minutes a day! So I still get to enjoy summer with my kids!

I talk a lot about how coaching allows me to help others, but I haven’t really talked that much lately about how coaching has helped me. The #1 reason I love what I do, love getting on team calls and feel so incredibly inspired everyday to help others: my team.
____
My team has been there for me through some rough af times.
When my parents disowned me.
When I was broke and had a balance of $0 in my banking account. 💰
When I was debating what to do with my life.
When no one believed I could do this.
When I couldn’t afford to feed myself and was on food stamps.
They helped me get out of my depression that I was in FOR MONTHS. 🤸🏻‍♀️
They helped me not only open up about my eating disorder but HELPED me get on the right track to recovery and gain a HEALTHY relationship with food. 🌸
They always listen to me, even when I’m stressed tf out on the verge of an anxiety attack choking back tears, they keep me calm. 🧘🏻‍♀️
They remind me daily that I will succeed and go far in my business.
They remind me when times get tough that I have a purpose and not only CAN but WILL help people. ☝🏼
They give me real af advice and don’t sugar coat things. 🍬
They have helped me gain confidence in my skin and LOVE myself for once in my life. 💛
They keep me accountable for my goals.
They push me to be a better version of myself.
They inspire me everyday to help more people and spread more positivity and love. 🌈
They motivate me.
They have become some of my best friends and a family that I absolutely LOVE and ADORE. 👭
So when you ask me WHY I do what I do and WHY I love it, this is why. My community, my team, my family 💕 .

Have you ever looked at your life and just wanted more? Feel like you were meant to do more?
~
I always knew I would have kids, and I’m so blessed to be Tristen’s Mom, but after having him I still felt like something was missing. ~
Battling depression my whole life then adding PPD I felt so lost. I was really struggling to find my purpose besides being a new mom. ~
That was until I found coaching.❤️ Coaching has blessed my life in so many ways. ~
It has pulled me out of my funk, it’s helped me become more confident, and I finally feel like I’m becoming who I’ve always wanted to be. ~
Now that I’ve found my path, I want to help you find yours. ✨ Do you have some of the same struggles?!?

For the first time in a long time, my thyroid levels are balanced. My vitamins, morning shake, and workouts have a lot to do with that. I'm balances from the inside out.

I know Wednesdays aren’t usually for throwbacks so I’m being a bit of a rebel here 😉....but seeing pictures like this (from 8 years ago!) reminds me that some of my most favorite memories are from times that I was pushed outside of my comfort zone and had so much fun! I LOVE routine and tend to thrive when I’m in a routine, but I also know that my BEST moments have come from stepping out of my bubble and my routine to push for something better.
This shot of me on a Segway tour was taken by my husband...the one who convinced me that doing this Gettysburg Segway tour would be fun. Of course I didn’t want to do it because who does that?! Well...we do! 😆. It was so fun and is a memory that I’ll always love.
So, while I still believe in, and try to stick to routine...I try to remind myself that doing scary, new, out-of-the-box things is what makes life worth living! 👊🤪🙌💪💃🏼

.
My reason for coaching is to help women stop hating themselves and learn to love who they are, to become what they once thought impossible because I remember hating who I was and feeling hopeless, not knowing where to start. My purpose is to be the hand to hold and guiding light I so desperately needed 8 years ago. I’ve broken free from my chains, & it’s my duty to help you do the same💞

No better way to spend our rest day than an awesome walk along the walking trail tonight. .

We also save this time for lengthy discussions, which most definitely wasn’t always the case...especially the ones neither of us wanted to have anyway.
You know, those uncomfortable discussions about finances or repairs. Ugh.

Our new mindsets now have us totally moving forward.
Communicating better than ever.
Laughing more.
Working as a team.
Planning, dreaming and setting goals.

I still have to pinch myself to be reminded that this isn’t a dream....this is really us!! It’s taken us 28 years to find this level of happiness. And honestly, it stems from LOVE!! Yes we love each other. Yes we love our God! But finally, FINALLY, we’ve learned to love ourselves!! ❤️ .

Physical strength does not always match the inner strength of a person. I believe a lot of people see strong men and women and assume they’re strength is abundant in all areas.
But I’ll tell you from experience, true strength is a matter of the heart. I at times feel like the weakest person, and everyone around me sees someone that’s strong. I definitely am and can be. Just being real. Life is a rollercoaster and sometimes you get stuck, upside down, in the loop, hoping you can just make it off the ride safely.

This past week with this guy has been rough! Who knew turning one would be so hard! When he was born early they told us to expect him to get sick easier. Boy were they right. He has been miserable for almost a week now but finally coming out of it. By that I mean he is back to destroying the house and letting his siblings maul him again. That’s just how we like it too. .
I was talking to my mum earlier in the week about sick kids. She has a heart of stone when it comes to sick kids. You practically had to be on your death bed to get any kind of attention (we may have a few hypochondriacs in the family) However she is an amazing, wonderful and compassionate midwife. Lol we always joke that her ladies wouldn’t believe how she treats her own kids when they are sick. Mind you she has way more of a heart for her grand babies when they are sick than she ever did us!
Are you the “kind and compassionate” or the “are you sure you are really sick?” kind of mother? I’m still not sure what kind I am yet. I think I lean towards the “are you really sick?” type. .

I was feeling so lonely & alone yesterday (still settling into a new town away from nearly all my friends) and as I took that feeling of ‘aloneness’ to God, I was reminded of His beautiful presence that never leaves me abandoned or alone. It was beautiful to see this reminder from @commonerscommunion this morning.

This is a portion of a poem I shared last last with the Valley Road whanau in the response to the bravery of a poem shared by someone in their community. She shared about the struggle to live and the darkness of the soul that can feel overwhelming at times. Her poem was beautiful and prophetic and I could feel the room exhaling as she spoke.
.
I wrote this poem reflecting on my own decade long journey with mental wellness and the way darkness tries to convince us that there’s such a thing as separation from God. I was inspired by this woman’s courage in sharing the multi-coloured graces in the words of her art. Maybe if we wrote about it more, and walked more honestly with one another we would help lesson the load for the many who still feel so deeply alone.
.
So, if that’s you today, I am with you, I can love you wholly because I’ve been walking that journey beside you even when you didn’t realise. Know that others have faith enough for you that the dawn will come, is coming, and that there is beauty in your midst. Even today. Kia kaha.

Super shake in hand, rockin the messy hair and glasses...and don’t forget the snoopy PJ bottoms😜

Ive put away dish mountain and now it’s time to tackle the rest of my house I’ve neglected 🙈

I’ve been so busy with my home business, grad school, enjoying life and let’s face it...I am no domestic goddess🤣

I have never been that girl who finds cleaning therapeutic...i am the girl who is pissed off and cleans at 10pm at night to release my frustration 😜

I am the girl who makes a very nice cleaning daily cleaning schedule but then that priority slowly falls down to the bottom of my TO DO list 😋

But then I also am that girl that is affected my her surroundings and dislikes when things are messy and untidy!!! I am a busy woman!!! This time last year, I had the luxury of a cleaning service clean my house once a week to help me keep on top of things.

Now, I don’t have that luxury as I am in the process of getting back on my feet after my separation and life change.

Daily Affirmation:
✨I appreciate everything that has brought me to this moment, where all change is possible✨✨✨✨ I am learning to be comfortable in the uncomfortable and finding joy in my life💖

I will not be miserable and feel sorry for myself. I will do what needs to done and take pride in taking care of the home that puts a roof over my furbabies heads and mine.

I wear my PJs when it’s a cleaning day...what do u wear?

Some of us have bought into the lie that we don’t deserve joy or beauty in our lives because of what we’ve done or who we are. We believe we are unworthy of receiving true, unconditional love. But Romans 8: 38 says ‘ . . . Nothing can ever separate us from God’s love’. It’s a good love; one that is pure & undistorted. It’s not manipulative or controlling. It’s not performance-based. His love is kind. When we learn how to rest in that love, we can begin to experience the freedom to truly experience joy and beauty in our lives that He wants us to experience & is our right as His kids. If there is any small (or loud) voice inside you thats saying ‘I don’t deserve to know beauty, joy or love’ don’t accept it! Jesus says, ‘I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest.’ John 10: 10

This is a photo I’ve loved for a long time. I’ve been afraid to post it. It makes me feel so vulnerable and free. I’m finally posting it and letting go of my fear. I’ve always been intrigued by nudism, but was raised very religiously. I’m finally at the point in my life where I’m happy and content with who I am. I have some amazing opportunities coming my way and I’m so excited for the future. #overcominganxiety #overcomingdepression #nudistbeach #nudephotography #stunner #humpday🐫 #wednesdaywisdom #livefree #befree #nudityisnotporn #beach #cottontailcorner #befree #freedom

✨Live Today “As If”✨
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What stories do you tell yourself? Do you look at other people who are living a life you wish you had or doing something you wish you could do and say “Well it’s easy for them….I couldn’t do that….they have XYZ and I don’t….I’m limited by [this]”. No matter where you are at in your life, I think we’d all be lying if we said we’ve never fallen into that trap at some point. I know I have!! 🙋🏻‍♀️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨Six years ago I didn’t think I was going to get out of the physical and mental hole I’d fallen into. I had felt exhausted, defeated, stuck in a place I could not get out of for SO long.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨I knew where I wanted to be, I had no idea how to get there. I looked at all the obstacles in my way, which were very real. It seemed impossible. It seemed paralyzing. It would have been easier to stay where I was. But I knew I couldn’t.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had to start living 💥AS IF💥
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏻 As if I had energy
👉🏻 As if I was healthy
👉🏻 As if I had time
👉🏻 As if I was strong
👉🏻 As if I was happy
👉🏻 As if I was fearless
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨I had to start living my life AS IF I was already the person I wanted to become. Doing the things I wanted to do.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🙌🏻 When I did that the solutions started to present themselves, I started figuring out how to overcome the things that were holding me back. I figured out a way to do it. 🙌🏻
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I made mistakes, I wasn’t efficient. But I still did it!! I ended up doing what I once thought wouldn’t be possible for me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It took 6 looooooooooooong months, but...
✔️my energy started coming back
✔️my body was healthy again
✔️turns out I did have time for my priorities
✔️I became physically and mentally strong again
✔️I started feeling happy
✔️even when I felt scared, I did it anyway because I knew I could.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🎯CHALLENGE: Next time you find yourself thinking something you really want is not possible for you ➡️ Start imagining the things you would be doing AS IF you already were there. As if you were already doing it. As if you were already living that life. And you will be.

Guys, so much power in these words. I had a gnarly battle with depression in my early 20s that often literally brought me to my knees. Now, in retrospect, I wouldn’t take back not even one bit of that darkness. It hollowed me out and created more room in me to love, be compassionate, and patient with others who have their own struggles. It’s not about what challenges life gives us, but how we react and grow from the battles of life.
