Today’s #fitnessfriday post is dedicated to #mentalhealthawarenessmonth Pause and ask . ‘ is hate, fear, expectation, shame, self-doubt driving you to question yourself. We all do it. I do too. It’s only human. But going past it with kindness and acceptance of yourself and others can set you free. Loving your ‘flaws’ & ‘imperfections’ as they call it is your ticket to move towards a happy you. Take time to talk and listen to someone. It’s ok not to feel ok all the time. We are all #imperfectlyperfect". Check out the post below.
