Look at me, I was a mess
3 rescues in 3 days
In this moment we had just gotten them home, I was saying sorry. For everything, on behalf of every human, for what we have done. I was saying sorry you don’t have your Mother, I’m sorry she is out there crying for you
I told you we had secrets. These secrets are now safe in another state
@jessie_simpson_ross & I did this one alone because it was so risky we didn’t want to risk anyone else. Cameras & even workers were there beside the holding pen where these babies wait over night to be murdered the following morning
As we approached we could hear them crying for their Mothers from such a distance. So many of them waiting on a concrete ground in the pitch black starving, & not shown even a moment of love
Babies born, to be murdered. Because humans want to drink their milk
How did we get so wrong, how did we get so evil. How are we such monsters that we take babies from their Mothers and it’s legal to just smash them on the head when they’re born because they’re “waste products” or if they don’t do it themselves they’re sent to a slaughter house
Torn from their Mothers the day they’re born because fuck, we couldn’t dare risk a baby drinking any of the milk that their Mothers body made for them. So we throw them on a truck & send them off to slaughter
TO THEIR MOTHER OR THEIR MILK
-MOTHERS CRYING FOR THEIR CHILDREN
-BABIES CRYING FOR THEIR MOTHERS
*** DAIRY *** How would you feel? That’s all you have to fkn do.. think HOW WOULD YOU FEEL !!! How MUCH would it hurt to have your child ripped away from you & you don’t know where the monsters are taking them & you can’t do anything to save your child but cry out to god
Would you physically do it to them? WOULD YOU take their baby away? Would you kill them? DO YOU NEED TO CONSUME COWS MILK ???? The answer is NO
You choose, who lives and who dies
Who suffers at your expense. It’s nearly 2019 stop being evil
You’re either vegan. Or you’re responsible .
Throwing it back this lovely Thursday morning to, well, not even a week ago when a GREAT podcast was aired. .
I will often refer to Dr. Gabor Mate, a Canadian Physician (whoop!!🙌🙌) who I fell in love with after reading his book ‘In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts’ almost 10 years ago. I am so pumped to see his name popping up all over the world for his work on addictions, trauma, and stress. He has worked alongside those with hard core drug addictions in Vancouvers East Hasting and I had the privledge of seeing him speak 2 years ago with one of my bests @cuminandclay here in Calgary (honestly, bucket list check!). His words are bursting with compassion and empathy, something I feel is often missing from conversations regarding mental health, stress, and addiction and he is eager to change the system for all of us and our kids! Last week he did an amazing podcast with Russel Brand, on his show ‘Under the Skin’, (RUN!! Like all his work it is goooood!) and next week in Calgary there is a viewing of the documentary ‘Painkiller: Inside the Opiod Crisis’ that features his work (I’m not associated with the event but check out starlings.ca calendar for details and link to register hehe;). Another amazing book I refer to often is ‘Hold onto your kids’ one of the only ‘parenting’ books I have read. Happy Thursday... happy listening...and happy reading, friends.
Removed from its mother within days, this young female calf will be raised to ultimately take the place of her mother, who will be considered 'spent' and sent to slaughter at around 5-6 years old. She will be forcibly impregnated every year and have her Calves removed as well. The male Calves will either be killed within days or sent to be raised for veal and killed whilst still very young, the females will be raised to continue the process. Truly there is no compassion in the dairy industry no matter what anyone says.

Play mother a lot of sisters and most of them were twins or triplets and she is the only sister of my mother who is still alive.
All of them died. My mom was the last. Now we received a message that she is seriously sick she can't see anymore, she is forgetting a lot of things she is like over 100 years we do not remember exactly how old. My mother only became 54 years.
Surprisingly this is another proof or evidence that shows how much we are or were indoctrinated, how much we are all ignorant.
Because what I remember in our family when my mother's sister would visit us the city where we lived she always carried her own food from her village. The food that we now call superfoods.
We were surprised. My parents would say or the other sister's of my mom would say or even their children that she is a very difficult person, when she visits. She doesn't want to eat anything nice from the city. Looking at her becoming so old the day of today, knowing that she would only choose to eat things that she grew in her own garden, things that she grew in her own piece of land. Her own livestock that she never slaughtered, only when she had visitors or for ritual reasons.
Today I am asking myself, what if we opened our mind and went to her and see how she did that see the reasons why he didn't want to eat all sorts of manipulated foods. Why she didn't want to be associated with all sorts of non-organic foods. Why she didn't want to go to the city that often where there is so much pollution. We now know why she became this old and stayed healthy. Why she never needed to visit hospitals.
Now we are receiving signals that she needs to go to a hospital, but what if her body will never respond to other medication than nature?
Could it be possible that my obsession for organic lifestyle is inherited from her. Could it be that the right people I meet and interract with the day of today are as a result of her lifestyle that I admire?
I am not sure if I will manage to see her, but her spirit will be with my mom💓❤ #love#loveyourself#compassion#children#beautiful#babies#loveinstagramm#vulnerabilities#genuineness#toughness
It’s crazy for me to stop and think about how invested I was in having a flat stomach. .
For YEARS, people. .
✋🏼 Putting my hand on my stomach when I sat down to see if it stayed flat. Lifting up my shirt to see if the size of my stomach had fluctuated in the last hour every time I saw a mirror (ie body-checking before I realized there was a term for it.) My eyes were instinctively drawn to every magazine cover that said something about a “flat stomach” no matter how outlandish the claim was. 👀 At one point in high school I even ordered a box of protein bars with some weird-sounding ingredient that was supposed to rev your metabolizing, and I ate them in secret because I knew my mom would think something was up if she found them. .
Well, something WAS up. And that something was that I’d been brainwashed *by diet culture* to think the way my body naturally looked, the way I’m prone to put on fat, was inherently messed up. Like my own actual body couldn’t be trusted to know what it was doing, but somehow Jillian Michaels could!! 🤦♀️ .
I’m glad those headlines no longer grab my attention. I’m glad I’m no longer compulsively checking and criticizing my stomach every chance I get. .
It turns out that through exposure, compassion, & curiosity about your own body, you can change how you see it. You can start to see parts you that you once couldn’t stand as harmless, and then, as kinda cute ;-) .
Feeling cute isn’t a necessary condition, nor is it by any stretch the meaning or end goal of body positivity, but point is that the boundaries of “cute” or “beautiful” that YOU tell YOURSELF only apply when you’re a certain size, can actually be shifted quite dramatically. .
I love this picture of me. In years past, it would’ve pushed me into a spiral of body hatred. Hey, our minds are more flexible—and more loving—than we give them credit for💁♀️
