In the light of recent devastating events I just wanted to say, that it's more important than ever that we practice love, tolerance, acceptance and kindness to our fellow humans and our planet... So how does one conquer this evil? By loving more, accepting more, practicing kindness more and ultimately remembering that we all are human at the end of the day. Humans on this big rock trying to find happiness....
Love conquers hate, not more hate ... so with that said love each other like there is no tomorrow. Help the old lady with her shopping across the road. Call friends and family you haven't spoken to in ages and tell them you love them. Take yourself out to nature and hug a tree, hug yourself, rescue a dog... what ever it may be let's blast this planet with a boost of love power... for its wayyyyyyyyyy more potent than the evil shit. And remember, no matter what color, gender, what peaceful religion ( and there is A LOT of them), no one deserves to be murdered, put down, humiliated, hurt, segregated, attacked... no no no no ... the more we accept EVERYONE and have respect for everyone's culture, religion ( peaceful religions), beliefs, who they choose to marry, ect ect, the more amazing and interesting life is. Cause you learn more and open your world up when you listen to someone else's story ... I know I do!!!! Why would we all want to be the same anyway... that would be terrible boring ☹️...So share that love beautiful people ...... for its the antidote to the assholes... PEACE OUT AND I LOVE YOU ALL, WHAT EVER YOUR STORY IS ....💖✨💖.
How do I push for acceptance and inclusion of my 4 students with almost 1000 others? I'm hoping this works! Every middle school student on campus walks by my classroom multiple times a day. I could easily keep my students locked up in this room all day, but I believe everyone can benefit from including them in their life (in and out of school). I have to make my students visible and encourage others that being kind and including them is not only the right thing to do, but it's fun too. So I tossed in a bunch of different kind activities that EVERYONE benefits from, not just my students. We'll see what happens! #inclusion#specialeducation#room401#justlistenharder#bekindpeople#bekind @bekindpeople
#fbf to the week my Crumb was born. This is what Crohn's can do. I'm severely malnourished because I'm using the restroom all the time. I'm up all night if the bags under my eyes don't give it away using the restroom. The bandage on my arm is to hide a pik line that went straight to my heart. I was receiving TPN just to maintain what weight I had. I wasn't allowed to eat food because I was on bowel rest for 2 months. I now can say I know what starving feels like. I was starving figuratively and physically. All my nutrition came from 1200 calories of TPN a day. Glucose wasn't added because I'm allergic to corn and that was in the glucose. I would receive my bag of TPN, inject liquid vitamins into it and than carry my "food" with a pump in it around with me. I could unhook during the day the last month I was on it. I would change my own pik line dressing and than flush it. Or my father would help me. I had a home nurse come out weekly to check on it and me. THIS is what Crohn's can do and this isn't even the worst. Living with any autoimmune disease takes from you. You learn to live without any control you live by faith. Faith in god, faith in your family, love, friends and body. It's walking blind through yourself. This pic was taken almost 8 years ago. I refused to let it steal my light, my joy. A few days before this photo I helped deliver my niece. By helped I mean pull her out because my sis had a home birth. As frail, as sick, as tired, in pain and broken I looked my spirit raged inside and I refused to let this steal memories, opportunities and joy from my life💪🏼❤️. I have been fighting my body for its existence since I was a child. Pain has become an unwelcome friend but I have always been me and IMO those who have really touched pain, tasted bittersweet days, survived horrific nights, cried quietly behind big smiles so their loved ones don't hurt are the strongest and kindest people. They have glimpsed into hell while being alive. Have felt more pain than a soul should and refuse to deal out pain to another. We know what it's like to be truly alone. Alone and defeated and never want that for another person❤️Never let something/someone take your joy.
God will always reveal who is for you or against you when you ask. Until then and even after- JUST LOVE! ❤ It's a requirement for every acclaimed believer. No matter how difficult a person is, we must love and hope for the best with everyone! IT IS possible to extend love to someone without liking them and their ways, but it will require your sacrifice of pride and ego to do so 😊. Let's all take our LOVE to a higher level! The world needs it now more than ever and who better to show more love than the body of Christ!! #justlove#forgiveness#agapelove#bekind#imitatechrist
No matter what or who has happened to you, be thankful. Being thankful means you're still alive and can still keep living.... Just use whatever time you have left to be better, smarter, stronger, and happier.... Life's a journey with many roads. Some have rainbows an some have hurricanes and earthquakes... Shake it off and keep coming with a smile, not anger. Anger is the enemy.
We Choose our actions and our words. Some make excuses for them but in the end, it was and is a choice. Some sit and never change their environment or people their around and they live unhappy excuse filled, finger pointing lives. Choose better for yourself and you'll find all the beauty the world has to offer and the beauty you have within cause everything's going to be alright. #GCII
This photo shoot was taken this past June. This was the first time in a long time that I've been emotionally ready for a photo shoot, and having a bikini on at the same time! This is the happiness I've been striving for, and the happiness that I hope stays with me for a very long time.💗 I NEVER would have thought that I would be able to rock a bikini! I've always thought that bikinis were strictly for extremely thin girls--which obviously is NOT me. Being able to rock a photo shoot on the beach, with everyone looking at me ( probably thinking I'm crazy!😂) showed me just how much courage I really have gotten over the last few months! At this time last year, I would've NEVER told myself I could do something like this.
I'm SO proud of myself for doing this. And I'm so in love with all my pictures! They are so pretty. I'm so happy with myself for being brave and doing something that makes ME happy. I'm starting to figure out that the more I take care of myself, the more I'm able to help others!❤️ The community has done SO MUCH for me, so I'm finding a way to give back. If you haven't heard of 7 Cups,
It's a free app that is for people who are struggling with anything in their life; ex) Suicidal thoughts,depression, anxiety, PTSD, BPD, OCD, stress, financial issues, marriage problems, etc and people volunteer to listen and try to help each other out! Everything is completely anonymous, so you can be yourself. I am now a Certified Listener, and this is just one way I plan to give back! ❤️ I encourage you all to find a way to give back in your community. It pays off, and makes you feel SO good helping others. DM me with any questions or advice!❤️❤️❤️ #givingback#showlove#loveyourself#bekind#youmatter
A series of 7 about "Communication". This one's about words & how we use them with intention to hurt or heal.
Some people can cut you like a knife with theirs, I think they need to be taught how to use them in kindness. Tough call.
It's also about how words are our most powerful form of communication, it's how we use them that is the art.
And yes, I'm deep like that. (PS, if you saw this previously I accidentally deleted it. So take 2)
Day of #Yoga4Growth and I am in the front yard of my childhood ... connected ... thankful ... reaching up. #faitbfocusflow
This pose is #Virabhadrasana III (#WarriorIII ). Warrior III strengthens the whole back side of the body, including the shoulders, hamstrings, calves, ankles, and back. It also tones and strengthens the abdominal muscles. Warrior III improves balance, posture, and full-body coordination.
•Begin standing in Mountain Pose with your feet hip-distance apart and your arms at your sides.
•Come into a forward fold with your hands on the mat. • Breathe slowly and find your gaze point, and bring your right leg up slowly until your whole body is parallel to the ground.
•Find your balance and slowly bring your arms up and palms into prayer position. •Flex your left foot and reach out through your heel, as if you're pressing a wall behind you.
•Keep the muscles of both legs actively engaged. Straighten your standing leg as you continue to lift the left leg, but do not lock your knees.
•Work toward bringing your arms, torso, hips, and raised leg parallel to the floor. You may need to lower the hip of your raised leg slightly in order to bring your hips parallel to your mat. Don't let your legs go higher than your hips. •Gaze at the floor a few feet in front of your body.
•Hold the pose for 30 seconds. To release, exhale as you softly lower your left foot back to the floor, coming again into Warrior I. Lower your arms and step forward into Mountain Pose. Repeat the pose for the same amount of time on the opposite side.
