We will find clarity through any cage. Today is World Mental Health Day. Instagram notified me of that. I logged on and saw a post from @mynameisghanwa and Ghanwa- you get me every time. Thank you for your bravery and for speaking out on all that you’re learning and acknowledging about yourself. FACT: I constantly delete and reinstall Instagram every single day because it often makes me feel insecure, judged and judgemental and spiritually weighed down. I’m working on myself, my anxiety towards body image and striving to love myself unconditionally. But it’s not always easy. Mental health is SO important. Talking about it matters. We all feel this shit. Message me if you need anyone to talk to. I promise, talking helps. Don’t let the voices in your head drown out the beautiful sound of your breath and beating heart. We are alive and we are perfect. #mentalhealth #liveoutloud

Power Yoga Canada Mississauga- one of my favourite places on Earth. I did a program with this beautiful studio called "40 days to personal revolution" and I can honestly say, it changed my life. We are living in a world where superficiality, emotional suppression and mental clutter is encouraged. This is not a fulfilling way to live. Through meditation, consistent yoga practice, meetings with the most loving vibes, and a healthier diet, I am confident that I have found a home in myself. JUNE 11th- a new program specifically for young men and women. PLEASE embark on this journey with me. Message either myself or @pycmississauga for more info 🙊💛🌸
Madeira’s boyfriend is Lovell Adams-Gray, her former co-star on Coroner. Kiana played Amanda Reyes on Coroner while Lovell played Dr. Dwayne Allen. She often posts photos of herself with Lovell on her Instagram page.
