I can hold my hands up and honestly say, patience has never been one of my strengths. I'm still building a relationship with it, it's taking time...but I'm getting there. Slowly, surely. There was a time when moment by moment I used to make my self anxious by constant seeking and questioning: when is it my turn? When am I going to find my happiness? When will my dreams manifest? When are things going to be easy for me?
I learnt that the space of uncertainty is only unkind to me if I don't trust. I had to fully and wholeheartedly trust in the strength of the Universe and my own Divine powers . I had to trust so deeply that doubt had no place to reside, so what I desired had no choice but to show up.
Just trust. Love + Light ✨✨
I love unmade beds. I love when people are drunk and crying and cannot be anything but honest in that moment. I love the look in people's eyes when they realize they're in love. I love the way people look when the first wake up and they've forgotten they're surroundings. I love the gasp people take when they're favorite character dies. I love when people close their eyes and drift to somewhere in the clouds. I fall in love with people and their honest moments all the time. I fall in love with their breakdowns and their smeared makeup and their daydreams. Honesty is just too beautiful to ever put into words.
Though I look chubby but can't forget the first ever magazine cover shoot with yo Vizag ❤. Proud moment . It was a Feb -march issue 2017 . I appreciate everyone for loving my work. I was going through a tough time in terms of my health and had put on weight despite that I could do this.Embracing my body and being happy with what I have has made me a happier person .

I'm still on my #fitgirl journey ❤ I have learned more #selflove than anything and my #gains from incorporating #lifting definitely keep me #motivated !!! Most of my workouts (4 days out of the week) are burning 500+ calories and I'm especially proud when I hit 1000 calories burned. I have a love for lifting and I literally live at the gym but I absolutely love it! I can't imagine my life without the gym anymore. Next step: MORE CARDIO!!! I've gotten strength but my BF% needs to go waaaaaay down. I've built up from only being able to run 1/8 mile (if that!) to now running nearly 1/2 mile continuously.
My tip? STAY MOTIVATED!! Do something EVERY DAY!!! And finally, find an exercise you LOVE to do and do it every day!! For me it's anything core related, especially "jet pack" leg lifts (I think the actual name is L bar or something) and the pull up assist.

On today's episode of "random things about Tiana." Haha.
This picture was taken the day I did my very first tandem skydive. It was amazing. I love skydiving. I got this shirt from my best friend/brother who is a Marine who lost his life fighting for our country. At this time I was consistently training but was not consistent with my diet. I will tell you this people, diet makes a huge difference. Another thing, DO NOT ever be afraid to seek advice from a trainer/dietician. I did research on my own for years and only thought I understood the importance of a balance diet. It wasn't until I found my amazing coach that I actually found out how to balance my diet based on how my body changes. I would never even imagine of using a different coach. Well, that's all for tonight babes. Stay motivated. ✌🏼😘 #npcbikini#selflove#trusttheprocess#throwbackpic#truehappiness#flexforthecamera#firstskydive#trainhard#dietharder
So the scale has not been moving for the past month..and I know the reason, and it's because I just can't focus entirely on weight loss like I was at the beginning of my journey..I'm eating healthy food, I'm eating when I'm hungry and stopping when I'm full. But I just can't get into the laser focused weight loss mind set...I need to find the passion for it again. I think this rainy weather we've been having is also contributing to my mood being kind of blah.. for right now, I am just going to try not to put pressure on myself because that always backfires. I'm still committed to a healthy lifestyle, but I need to stop focusing on the scale and numbers for a while.
Never underestimate the effect you have on the people around you. Share around those good vibes, that love, those smiles, that advice, those pearls of wisdom and inspiration. Who knows? You might just find that they come back to you in unexpected places 😘
Things are shifting and I've resisted allowing this shift to happen. It's so tempting to just shove myself in a box, categorize my soul, decide who I want to be and apply all my resources to becoming this person.
It would be so easy to identify the things I value in other people and then consciously work to create them in my own life, even if with my own flair.
But that would be selling short the unique expression of my soul, the mark I'm here to make. The mark you're here to make.
It's so easy to compare myself to others, try to reverse engineer their success, or to try and present myself as an expert on something just because I can.
It's hard to look at everything I've built, so carefully, inch by hard-won inch and think -- maybe I need to shift. Maybe some things need to be thrown away so something new can emerge.
It's easy to take more courses, listen to more people, try to figure out what's missing when what I really need to do is tune in and hear the music of my soul.
So many people wait to follow their dreams or put their heart out into the world until there's a finished product. But there's never a finished product. The doing is the figuring out.
I fully embrace a messy process. I learn best by throwing things at the internet, as my mentor says, and seeing how it feels. I remember when I was figuring out my brand colors, I literally changed my website every day for what felt like a month.
Maybe it felt chaotic. Probably nobody remembers or is even still around from those days. But it didn't matter because part of my dharma is showing the behind the scenes of my journey and I figured that if maybe people saw me being messy and imperfect they would give themselves that same freedom.
So I'm creating space. Playing with new labels and identities and messages. Changing my social media bios 800 times and embracing the mess becuause the mess IS the message.
I feel a mix of authenticity and self-love and emotions and healing and following your dreams and telling your story arising and I have no idea how it will all merge, but I know then when it does combine into a brand new whole, it will feel beautiful and... continued in comments
#womensunitymovement Alhamdulilah after what, nearly two years we FINALLYYYY got to meet each other yesterday in person 😅 As a #revert I LOVE meeting new sisters but more especially the REAL ones. The ones you inspire while at the same time they are inspiring you. The ones who aren't fake nor catty, but are humble, down to earth, kind hearted. The ones you just immediately click with and you find the conversations just keep going & going as you are so intrigued & enjoy them ☺️ Alhamdulilah 💕😍💋💕
