  • Today I stopped all activities and ceased all types of “work” to hold this little guy. It seems he has been plagued with an upset stomach for days and holding him is his only comfort. I remember thinking when becoming a new mom 6 years ago (and admittedly still struggle to think at times) that so much of newborn-ness is full of “wasted time;” so much sitting, rocking, patting (repeat, repeat, repeat), that just getting dressed can take an entire morning, let alone trying to get anything done. Literally that‘s what I would think and once again, was me TODAY (robe on till 12 pm 🙄😬🤪). ⠀⠀
•
⠀⠀ I can remember feeling guilty for this “wasted time” and wishing the days to hurry up so I could get beyond this stage and into the next. So today when I felt myself begin to head in that direction of thinking I immediately felt the Holy Spirits peace come on me and He said, “rest Tessa, it’s time to rest. Soak in these moments, forget the mess and give in to this.” Sincerely this is one of THEE hardest things for me to do, it’s not at all in my enneagram type 3 personality to stop and rest when all I see is a “list” of things to do in front of me. But I did it you guys! I rested! And guess what...I didn’t accomplish anything! 🤪 I wore my sweats all day, with no makeup and an unwashed face and took care of my KID(S) instead of all the little things in front of me. ⠀⠀ •
⠀⠀ Sometimes for me, I get so wrapped up in all the “side hustle things” that I forget that the Father first called me to be a mother. And often times that means sacrificing a clean face and home for the well-being and happiness of your children (even if that means you stay in your robe till noon). One day you’ll look back and it will be worth it and you’d probably choose to do it all over again (at least that’s what I’m telling myself and so should YOU! 😌😘😜)

  • Tidak perlu merasa bersalah apabila seorang ibu memilih untuk bekerja diluar rumah. Sebenarnya islam sendiri memiliki pandangan yang berbeda berkenaan dengan ibu bekerja atau bisa disebut denga Wanita Karir. Islam memandang bahwa seorang wanita tidak dilarang untuk bekerja, maupun meniti karir diluar rumah. Sejauh hal tersebut tidak menghilangkan tanggung jawabnya sebagai seorang ibu, sebagaimana yang diatur dalam Al- Qur'an Surat Al-Baqarah : 233

وَٱلْوَٰلِدَٰتُ يُرْضِعْنَ أَوْلَٰدَهُنَّ حَوْلَيْنِ كَامِلَيْنِ ۖ لِمَنْ أَرَادَ أَن يُتِمَّ ٱلرَّضَاعَةَ ۚ وَعَلَى ٱلْمَوْلُودِ لَهُۥ رِزْقُهُنَّ وَكِسْوَتُهُنَّ بِٱلْمَعْرُوفِ ۚ لَا تُكَلَّفُ نَفْسٌ إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ لَا تُضَآرَّ وَٰلِدَةٌۢ بِوَلَدِهَا وَلَا مَوْلُودٌ لَّهُۥ بِوَلَدِهِۦ ۚ وَعَلَى ٱلْوَارِثِ مِثْلُ ذَٰلِكَ ۗ فَإِنْ أَرَادَا فِصَالًا عَن تَرَاضٍ مِّنْهُمَا وَتَشَاوُرٍ فَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْهِمَا ۗ وَإِنْ أَرَدتُّمْ أَن تَسْتَرْضِعُوٓا۟ أَوْلَٰدَكُمْ فَلَا جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذَا سَلَّمْتُم مَّآ ءَاتَيْتُم بِٱلْمَعْرُوفِ ۗ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ

Para ibu hendaklah menyusukan anak-anaknya selama dua tahun penuh, yaitu bagi yang ingin menyempurnakan penyusuan. Dan kewajiban ayah memberi makan dan pakaian kepada para ibu dengan cara ma'ruf. Seseorang tidak dibebani melainkan menurut kadar kesanggupannya. Janganlah seorang ibu menderita kesengsaraan karena anaknya dan seorang ayah karena anaknya, dan warispun berkewajiban demikian. Apabila keduanya ingin menyapih (sebelum dua tahun) dengan kerelaan keduanya dan permusyawaratan, maka tidak ada dosa atas keduanya. Dan jika kamu ingin anakmu disusukan oleh orang lain, maka tidak ada dosa bagimu apabila kamu memberikan pembayaran menurut yang patut. Bertakwalah kamu kepada Allah dan ketahuilah bahwa Allah Maha Melihat apa yang kamu kerjakan. ⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋⚋

  • Good Morning..⛅️
.
.
And Happy Monday! The weekend as per usual went by in a flash.. Football training.. Birthday parties.. A night on the town.. And a day spent with 5 of my nephews.. It’s my favourite when all of the cousins get together.. There’s 11 of them now.. 10 and under.. So there’s always someone to play with.. And there’s always a life lesson to be learnt 😂.. Anyway.. I hope you all have a lovely day.. The sun is finally shining again.. So I think an afternoon of pottering about the garden is in order.. And then early nights all round.. Everyone over here is always a little slow moving on a Monday.. And there’s a couple of adults still recovering from a night off parenting.. Which may have involved one too many wines and beers.. Sending you all lots of love.. Make sure you have a good one!!❤️

  • This has been my favourite running moment so far in my life ❤️ At this moment, climbing a waterfall near the end of a five hour run through the most rugged technical terrain I have ever experienced, all
I felt was immense joy, freedom and gratitude. I am so lucky to be alive and free and I want to share that freedom with everyone I meet ❤️ @fisiocremaustralia @ringoffirenz

  • If you’ve been in any of yoga classes recently you would have heard me talking about ‘the story of your body’

This story of you’re body tells you exactly what you need to do, gives you clarity, access to ancient wisdom and makes decision making effortless. The story of your body flows through you every second of every moment - sometimes a story of the past is flowing, sometimes the future. The present is always available to you when you allow it to arrive and just tune in.

We are So conditioned to live neck up - thinking, planning, analysing - and don’t get me wrong, I know this realm well. But a simplicity, a greater knowing, a self assurance, a wisdom of the sages lies BEYOND the mind, and in the story of your body.

Feminine embodiment is a term you might of seen me dropping in recently - this is just one facet - albeit a huge facet. Feelings, sensations, these are all the story of your body - and moreso, the story of your soul.

This is how we play in my circles. This is how I Guide you to live and be in the world, be in your own body in one on one work. >>> next circle Womb Freeing April 28 Sun link in bio ⭕️ DM me to chat about one-on-one embodiment coaching xx

  • Lots of this kind of thing after the Spinn bit at Hampstead’s Spinn studio , because bone density matters and because we don’t ever take our healthy bodies for granted . Fitness matters so much more than your bikini and insta Picts .  Fitness should be primarily a healthy thing . You’re going to lean up if you work out and eat properly that’s a great result. But you’re going to be healthy mentally and physically and that is the most important thing you need in life . Invest your wasted coffee money and you will feel a whole lot better every day . The little moments at our studio when people find their strength and feel empowered are priceless . Everyone can get fit , just start working with a plan and stick to it even when it requires more effort . That’s how people get good at things . Nobody arrives perfect and nobody finishes perfect .. the “journey “requires effort and enjoyment 🥇 £30 for 3 classes Intro offer 🚴‍♀️

  • This week's postpartum story is from @annie_breen_nutrition. Annie is a fellow Nutritional Therapist who specialises in supporting mothers through preconception, pregnancy and postpartum. I met Annie through instagram then was fortunate to meet her IRL when she travelled all the way from Scotland to SE London (with a broken foot) to come to @droscarserrallach talk which I organised last summer. She then came to stay with us a couple of weeks ago. It is never any surprises that such synchronicities happen. Annie and I share a passion for supporting mothers and now support one another in our respective practices. Thank YOU, Annie.

Leo vaknar. Ljuset i rummet avslöjar att det blivit morgon. Täcket och kudden känna mjuka och sköna. Jag möter Leos blick och leendet som blir utav det. Var det mysigt att krypa ner bredvid honom sovandes igår, är det inget mot att vakna upp den här morgonen. Vi myser och gosar. 💭🧡

  • They’re waiting for their baby girl and I’m over here waiting for my immune system, ability to be on time, a clean car, and half the hair from my head to return from my first pregnancy 🙋🏻‍♀️ All jokes aside, it would be nice not to be sick for the 10th time in 3 months 🤷🏻‍♀️.

  • NOUVEAU RITUEL DU SOLEIL- 
Les mamans, ça y est après plusieurs semaines d’essai je peux enfin vous faire un retour. Comme je vous l’expliquais j’avais des difficultés à coucher bébé H différemment que en l’endormant tous les soirs dans le porte bébé et puis l’idée a fait son chemin j’ai beaucoup discuté avec beaucoup d’entre vous. Pour moi, hors de question de laisser pleurer mon enfant une seule fois pour qu’elle comprenne, j’étais persuadée qu’il y avait mieux à faire et a faire différemment. Heureusement que je suis restée sur ma ligne directrice et que je n’ai pas écouté les conseils qui me disaient que le problème venait de moi, que ça allait lui faire du bien de pleurer, qu’elle faisait un caprice. N’importe quoi. Pour info, il suffit de regarder sur internet, un enfant n’a pas la capacité mentale de faire un caprice avant l’âge de 18 mois. Les enfants peuvent être  exprimer des inconforts, des volontés, des douleurs ou même des angoisses par les pleurs. Encore une fois, il y a une différence entre un enfant qui déchargent « un peu » avant de s’endormir et un enfant qui hurle pour appeler ses parents pour telle ou telle raison. Et je peux vous dire qu’aujourd’hui je couche ma fille sans pleurs et je ne l’ai jamais laissée pleurer pour en arriver là. La chose que j’ai compris en discutant avec une maman que j’ai rencontré sur insta qui s’appelle Julie et que j’embrasse d’ailleurs c’est que la décision de commencer à la coucher différemment devait d’abord venir de moi et non de mon enfant, la décision vient de moi et je l’aide en m’adaptant à elle. Pendant ma grossesse j’ai fait pas mal de sophrologie pour me calmer, j’ai décidé d’utiliser ses séances pour mettre en place un nouveau rituel du coucher et instaurer un apaisement.  #mum #mom #maman #mam #mumtobe #mumlife #mummy #mama #momtobe je #famille #family #familia  #baby #babygirl #babys #instagram #instapic #instamum #instafashion #instalife #mother  #familyfirst #familygoals #familytime

  • Oh shit. I just realised I know nothing about vaginal birthing. I'm on the list for a c-section in week 39, but won't get scheduled until a week out from then. In the meantime, if I go into spontaneous labour, I'm going to give it a crack. I've experienced my water(s) breaking and got to 6cm within an hour without feeling a thing - so what do contractions feel like? Do they vary person to person? Because I can't trust what I see on TV. Or can I? Does everybody feel them? What if I don't realise it?! What if my bumhole falls out? Some of these questions I'll put to my midwife on Wednesday...

  • And just like that I say farewell to the Jesus-loving, sexaholic, and husband-adoring, AIMEE REYES. Playwright Boni Alvarez created such a wonderfully fun #character to play with. What a #gift! 😌 And I’m so happy that I got to bring her to life and share her with those who came to see #AmericaAdjacent. She was definitely a part of a very special time in my life. ❤️ #actorlife #thankful #grateful #blessed

  • • The Sacrifice of a Mother •⠀
⠀
If motherhood could be summed up in one word, I believe it would be ‘sacrifice.’ Right when you think you’ve given all you can give, more is required. ⠀
⠀
Motherhood can be painted as this beautiful thing that looks easy and cute. Although it is beautiful, it doesn’t always feel that way. Motherhood is anything but easy, cute, or convenient. It is quite the opposite. ⠀
⠀
At pregnancy, our bodies go through a lot to support a new growing human and there’s nothing easy about it. Missing sleep at night with a newborn is not cute, it’s a sacrifice. Taking a toddler on an outing is anything but convenient. The trying years of teaching a child the same thing over and over, to listen to you and obey can be a very frustrating process. The love given but not reciprocated by a teen is a difficult thing. It’s all a sacrifice.⠀
⠀
As moms, we are required to sacrifice over and over and over again. If we aren’t careful, all the sacrifices we make can turn into a life of complaining and wishing seasons away. Although sacrifice isn’t fun, it’s good for us as individuals. Motherhood is a refining process and as we allow ourselves to be refined, we become better women. We become more balanced, compassionate, caring, patient, kind, generous, etc. ⠀
⠀
Instead of dwelling on all the things we have to sacrifice on a daily basis, let’s think about what it’s forming us to be. There will be times that we are required to give of ourselves more than we ever have before and when we don’t have anything left, but that stretching is good for us. When we conquer one area, we’ll be stronger, able to face much more than we imagined. What once would have broken us, won’t have the power anymore because we’ve learned how to sacrifice and stretch. ⠀
⠀
Motherhood is not only about raising kids, but it’s about becoming women who go beyond themselves and beyond their abilities. There’s a beauty that comes as a result of the sacrifices made of a mother. Let our perspective shift from focusing on what we are giving up, to what we are gaining by our sacrifice.⠀
