Despite yesterday’s medical upset, my spirit SHINES BRIGHT. Perhaps brighter than it’s been in a long time. On Thursday morning I woke up feeling a huge energetic shift, after Wednesday night sending off to an accountability team an almost final version of an accountability statement I’d been working on over the past two weeks. Although it’s intense to see over half a dozen pages of impact, it has also been so healing to put it all down on paper—despite the additional emotional labor and some reliving of painful memories. It’s been healing to clarify my requests, requests that will also hopefully prevent others from being harmed. I know it’s not my responsibility. I know it’s not something I can control. But I can do my part in speaking up, now that I’m ready, now that it feels empowering instead of forced. I can do my part by naming the consent violations, listing the ways in which I’ve been impacted, and making requests for healing and repair. 💛 And so I am. And by doing so, I feel my power coming back to me.
Mind what you Consume because it goes a long way in defining who you'll turn out to be.You are what you consume, PERIOD.
You are a product of the PEOPLE you listen to.
You are what you EAT.
You are a product of what you READ
You are a product of what INSPIRES you.
You are a product of the OPINIONS you accept.
You are a product of what you DO.
Where to start... except for the fact that I have some of the best friends ever :) Planning a fundraiser alone in 3 weeks was maybe a bold, exhausting, and stressful move but so worth it. Didn’t know if it’d turn out how I hoped, but like normal it turned out way better (thank you low expectations - we’re still workin on that 😂) My friends helped build a taco bar, drank lots of beer, bud on some auction items and then just calmed me the heck down. Basically, it was a blast! Oh and also... through donations and auction items we raised $1,400 more dollars for @jedfoundation !! And that’s without the beer. Now I’m moving on to the final 10 days of preparation
THANK YOU! ❤️-
I just wanted to say a little thanks. Since I’ve started this page, I’ve connected with so many on different levels. Fitness, self care, marriage, motherhood.. you name it. My husband and I were in the car the other day discussing just this- So many people in this world that you could probably connect with yet never even know they’re out there. Social media used to be such a BAD place for me, but since reevaluating a lot about myself I’m so thankful to have this platform, to see the HEALTHY sides social media can offer, to speak on behalf of things, to be vulnerable, to share my love for fitness, to help others, to just be ME! -
HAPPY S A T U R D A Y! 🤙🏼
"Great, Excellent. Yeay!!" “Bersemangatlah untuk meraih segala hal yang bermanfaat bagimu. Mintalah pertolongan Allah dan jangan lemah. Apabila engkau tertimpa sesuatu (yang tidak menyenangkan) janganlah berkata, ‘Seandainya aku dulu berbuat begini niscaya akan menjadi begini dan begitu’ Akan tetapi katakanlah, ‘QaddarAllahu wa maa syaa’a fa’ala’ (Allah telah mentakdirkan, terserah apa yang diputuskan-Nya), Karena perkataan 'seandainya' dapat membuka celah perbuatan syaitan.” (HR. Muslim). Saya Nurul Huda, Siapp untuk berpartisipasi dalam rangkaian acara Organization Training 1 yg bertema "Challenge Your Self, Upgrade Your Iman"✊ MARI MENEBAR MANFAAT~
Through life we have ups and downs. We have people in life who want us to fail. They tell us we are not good enough bc we are not like the "perfection" what this delusional society made up. And in week moments we belive it. I hated myself. I belived this crap. I hated looking in the mirror. I belived all my bullies. I belived i am not enough. I became suicidal. I felt like everyone was against me. I thought who would miss me? So i hurt myself. Several times. But a my guardian angel stopped me. But to this day i have scars to remind me. It was the stupidest thing i have ever done. I want you guys to know that there is always a solution. There is always a reason to LIVE. to SMILE. If u go through something hard tell someone. Don't be scared to get help! You are you and nobody can do what u can! U are up for big things. Don't ever give up! Fight, Love and Live. You are loved and NEVER alone. You are PERFECT your own way. The worlds needs you. I need u. 💘💘💘 #selflove#selfharm#anexity#help#speakup#depression#happy#sad#notalone#strong#strongertogether#youtubers#youtube#love#explorepage#explore
The past few months have been stunningly challenging for me mentally and I’ve been desperate for an escape. SO I LEFT!! Spending the weekend in Waco, TX with my two bests. • This photo is of the science building at Baylor...completely unedited. • I might have to move here... ~ Kaity
Day 5 Transgender Awareness Week
“An incarnated lesson in unconditional Love”
(My cover of Ziggy Marley’s love is my religion)
So unconditional LOVE💕...........I’m definitely not at the point where I can turn the other cheek right away, Jesus was the rebellious rock star of his time that I don’t feel like modern religion portrays accurately! I think he was more like the guy with dreadlocks at a rainbow🌈 family gathering, with the free hug sign, then the “Thou shalt Not” image of today.
Being born in a way that’s different from most the other humans on earth has a way of teaching you not to judge others. We really have no idea why other people are the way they are! What happened to them along the road that lead them to their current situation, or choice’s in life. Or that given the same situation in life that we wouldn’t have ended up in the same place or worse. Just writing that made my eyes start flowing, so maybe that’s the real most important lesson I’ve learned in this transgendered life.
To all my Friends and Not yet Friends. If what you do or are, doesn’t hurt any one else in the process, then it’s ok to just BE YOUR SELF!
If your sexual identity is being attracted to clouds ☁️? I’ll still love you!😍 And if your personal Identity is a Unicorn 🦄 named “fluffy cloud rainbow dance chaser”😜 I will still love you!😘
I’ve learned understanding some one, is more important then who’s technically right or wrong. It’s about looking for that spark of light and love that lives in every one of us and building from there!🌈
Even though I’m still treated badly often by people that don’t understand my life’s path, I will continue to try my best to forgive though’s who seek to hurt me, and Love those who wish to destroy me.
Because over all else what I’ve learned from my life is this!
LOVE 💕 IS MY RELIGION!💚!💚!💚!💚! #transgenderisbeautiful#transgenderweek#transwk#transgender#trans#transeducation#transgenderawarenessweek#transvisibility#transrightsarehumanrights#youareamazing#transweek#youarebeautiful#useyourvoice#gladd#speakup#lgbtqia#lgbtq🌈 #mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealthwarrior#mentalhealthwarriors#starttheconversation#lgbt#lgbt
It was a postcard perfect drive to Wellsburg, NY, today. Tomorrow morning I will share a message of hope and redemption at the Wellsburg Community Church! I’m excited to see what God has in store. He’s always faithful.
✨💖Truth is, we never know how long the darkness is going to last. We don’t know what awaits us, how difficult it will get, if we have the strength to make it through the breaking point. All we know for certain is that nothing lasts forever. Everything is temporary. No matter how intense - all emotions will pass. Struggles will come to an end and be replaced with new problems and solutions. Perspectives will change, people will change, life can never remain the same. In that certainty of inconsistency, we have freedom. And sometimes a little freedom is all you really need to start over, to find a better path. Maybe we need to be broken to be set free of our own fears and limitations. To evolve and become new. It’s all the process. And it’s all working out for the best, even when the best is no where in sight. You are becoming who you are meant to be, even in times you feel stuck. It’s all sending you forward, making you better, creating your destiny. We must learn to trust in the growing pains, no pain is truly endured without purpose. God is good, and life is good, always. ✨💖

CORK, IRELAND 🇮🇪 A 27 year-old man has been acquitted of sexual abuse because the girl wore a thong. A clothing as well as an attitude, do not represent consent. This 17 years old young woman is not guilty. She didn't want it or ask for it. Stop blame the victim. This is unacceptable.
#ThisIsNotConsent is the slogan that is filling the real and virtual plazas of Ireland and beyond. Let's repeat it strong, everyone in every part of the world, together. This is not consent.
I can not image not having our beautiful downtown flowers! Especially with the amount of tourist we have. It is one of the things that makes our city beautiful. It’s not like we have great architecture here so the flowers really make it nice. Feel free to repost and let’s let the ones who decide such things know that we want to keep our City of Flowers & Lights ✨🌙 #Anchorage#KeepBeautifulFlowers#SpeakUp
Today is National Premie Day. As a parent of a premie we are so Thankful for the Dr’s and Nurses that helped our wee little guy fight for life.
If he had not had such a team helping him fight through all his little 4lb 5oz body had to deal with. He would not be here today.
We didn’t get to meet him till he was two days old. I will NEVER forget the long nights, ALL the Dr appointments. All the tears shed for our little man.
We do not have many pictures of his first few days. This is one of the few I took. He was one month old and meeting his Auntie for the first time. I am and was so thankful for her and how this picture caught a tender moment between the two of them. @jenniferksiddens .
He still struggles because of his early arrival. I can proudly say though that today....our “man child” weighs 120 and is 5 foot 1 inch! Not bad for an 11 year old boy! He is our rainbow baby 100x over and I will forever be honored to be his Mama, hand picked by God.
To all the parents sitting in a NICU. We pray for you and know all the unanswered questions running through your mind and heart. Know it is ALL worth it. Know there are brighter days ahead and those wee little ones become the strongest kido’s. No one and nothing can break the bond between you and your child and you will feel so grateful for your NICU nurses that you might go see them yearly or at least exchange Christmas Cards FOREVER!
Today is International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day.. If you’ve survived a loss from suicide I want you to know I understand. It’s quite unlike any other kind of loss. You feel guilt from worrying maybe you didn’t give them enough love, your head goes through all these scenarios of how you could’ve saved them and imagine life if they were still alive. It is not your fault. Mental illness is a hard complex battle. Focus on all the positive memories and talk about your loved one with others. Keep the good memories alive, and if you’re having trouble understanding or dealing with it don’t hold it in. Speak up and speak out. Talk with other survivors. Be there for each other. Tell your story to help prevent and break this stigma. If you’re battling mental illness please do not hold it in. Get help. No matter what you think people do really love you and would miss you terribly.
Ah, the truth comes out. —————-
I’m going to take a leap and say that most people acknowledge that climate change is real and that humans are doing a bad job of cleaning up after themselves and causing a whole host of problems environmentally which is having a huge impact on ourselves and wildlife. —————
The opportunity to change our ways presents itself every moment of every single day, yet we often fail to take the step towards a better choice. —————
Change occurs when we take the next steps, and for everyone, that looks different. It could mean reducing some waste, driving less, turning down your heat a bit, writing to your MP, the list could go on forever. Change happens when we implement our best intentions, not by just thinking good intentions.
Take the next step, you might just inspire someone else in the process!
1 Child dies every 10 minutes due to starvation or bombings in Yemen. Thousands of people are impacted in Gaza and Palestine daily. Millions of Syrians have been displaced and hundreds of thousands more killed. I can go on and on and on... Prayers for this, and prayers for that do not do a damn thing! Not a damn thing! We need to speak up! I am not saying don't pray. What I'm saying is, prayers are not enough. We need to inform others! When we inform and raise awareness, change happens! Without being informed, how can anything change? As a human, I am horrified of everything going on, and as a healthcare provider, I am shocked and stunned when I read about the starvation of the children in these regions and lack of basic healthcare equipment and supplies. More shocked and stunned that not many are talking about this. Especially those so called "influencers" on here.... What shocks me most is how the death of one person generated more buzz from everyone than the hundreds of thousands in these regions. I'm talking about Stan Lee. This statment coming from a huge marvel fan.
How long do we go watching this? Have we become so desensitized to it all? I still believe in a better humanity. A better world. I need you all to share this belief with me and do something about it. Or else, we are all dead... Be informed please, and let people know what is going on... I'm losing sleep thinking about this and it is driving me fucking crazy... Please do not let these people die as you watch on.... #speakup#awareness#share#instapic#instagram#palestine#syria#yemen#medicine#medicina#children#life#instapic#instagram#loveoverhate#hope

The fight, she said, started when @chrisbrownofficial received a text message from another woman while they were driving away from a Grammy Awards party. "I caught him in a lie, and he wouldn't tell the truth. And I wouldn't drop it," "I couldn't take that he kept lying to me, and he couldn't take that I wouldn't drop it. ... It escalated into him being violent towards me. And it was ugly. I was battered, I was bleeding, I was swollen in my face," she said.
@badgalriri believes now that the passionate love affair between the young couple -- she was 20 at the time, he was 19 -- was an unhealthy one.
"The more in love we became, the more dangerous we became for each other, equally dangerous," she said. "Because it was a bit of an obsession."
