Each and everyone of us were made in our own way. We all look different, we all talk and act differently. That's what makes each and everyone one of us who we are. Everyone needs to do their part in learning to accept people for who they are and embrace them for their differences. Stop judging others for being who they are and start being kind to one another. The world would be such a better place if people would stop bullying and judging others. Choose to sit with the kid at lunch that sits alone or no one talks to. Choose to play with the kid no one talks to at recess. Everyone can make a difference if they try. At the end of the day we're all the same.
On our morning walk we came across this lovely little fairy door and painted pebbles completed by the #nationalautisticsociety .
Such a lovely thing to do and my boy loved seeing the painted pebbles, although he was a little disappointed the fairy door didn’t open 🧚♀️ 🧚♂️ . .
Thank you to the makers of this for bringing us a little joy this morning ❤️
Mardi Gras Fair Day Neighbours stall. The two gentlemen to the right are actors from the Australian series Neighbours. They play recently married gay couple on the show and are continuing the legacy of regular gay characters started (I believe) in the 1970’s series Number 96. It was a groundbreaking series during its run for many reasons but the biggest that stands out for me was that two of its regular characters were gay and I believe it was the first tv series in the world to have regular characters to be LGBTQI anywhere in the world at the time. The two gentlemen in the photograph on the right were wonderful and everyone involved were fantastic thank you #neighbors#number96#lgbt#lgbtq🌈 #fairday#acceptance#equality#mardigras2019#mardigras#love#proud#support#beyourself#weareallthesame#ramseystreet
@refugym_... what a wonderful initiative Brittany has had. Who would have thought music and sport would make so many peaceful smiles appear on refugees faces ? Because, it really does. It creates this pure and peaceful happiness they haven’t had the chance to feel for such a long time. It is the kind of NGO that doesn’t only help refugees to survive, it also gives them the desire and the joy of living ! Thanks to Refugym and it’s volunteers, women can finally feel free to externalise and be themselves far from any kind of oppression and violence they’ve suffered and might still suffer from. It’s days where, everyone forgets about their problems and dances with the beat of love !
I am so thankful I found this organisation and met those inspiring volunteers to spend a month with, I’ve never felt SO useful to others, and that is thanks to Refugym 🌍❤️ #refugym#standwithrefugees#refugeeswelcome#weareallthesame#kindnessmatters
Ritualistas: women who use Rituals to direct, manifest, heal & celebrate.
And they're you. For those Ritualistas, the ones who confidently light candles and make a sacred space in their homes, who collect crystals and place them delicately on their altars, who smudge with sage, who use stones and feathers and leaves and flowers to indicate what they need, to make mandalas, to invite intention....they once had no idea what they were doing!
They were possibly introduced to ceremony and ritual via plant medicine ceremonies or yoga retreats, they found out about Cacao ceremonies, they heard about such things from friends or on a blog, but their interest was peaked.
For they felt something when they heard those stories. Something moved.
They realised that women who did Rituals came from every walk of life; nurses, nutritionists, teachers, lawyers, business owners...some with jobs, some without, some with tattoos, some with none, some were mothers, some weren't, some spoke of moon cycles, others had no idea, some with histories of trauma and abuse, some from comfortable loving childhoods, some had addictions, some didn't, some told everyone they did Rituals, some kept them secret.
And they realised, we are all the same, we all carry the same self doubt, guilt, fear, insecurities, we all worry about our thighs, compare ourselves to others and they realised it was time to take time.
A Ritualista clears space for herself.
A Ritualista quietens her mind.
A Ritualista makes an intention.
A Ritualista offers careful gesture.
A Ritualista creates time for herself.
And she feels calm and centred and whole.
It's hard not to be moved by the sheer number of names etched into the granite of the Vietnam Veterens Memorial Wall. It contains the names of some 58,000 Americans killed or declared MIA from the Vietnam War. Tucked randomly along the base of the memorial are flowers, photos and notes to loved ones.
Landed. A lovely ride with Dr. Mohammad Rafig Khan from Pakistan. He has about 100 Academic degrees, Masters and PhD and teaches at Lahore School of Economics in Lahore, Pakistan ♥️‼️ I asked him if he knew what a selfie was and he said YES! #weareallthesame
✡So many claim rights to the land of Israel, and so many claim to be the original people of #yahweh, #allah, #igziabeher etc. There have been countless wars fought in order to occupy the "holyland ", and so much murder in the name of "god ". Many of us boycottisrael because of the genocide that has taken place over the 20th century till now of Palestinians, who were living in the land formerly known as Palestine, now called Israel by its conquistadors . But even before this it was occupied by the hebrews, and was called judea, or judah. Even longer before this, all the land from southafrica all the way up to europe, and even as far as india was deemed ethiopia, or kush ✡
A this present moment, there are many Tribes and Nationalities that reside in the land presently known as Israel. There are ethiopians, palestinians, germans, russians, "africanamericans ", "caribbeanamericans ", and many more. Many of these people's claim israel as home. ✡✡✡✡✡✡✡✡✡✡✡✡✡✡✡✡
IF WE BOYCOTT ISRAEL, WE ARE BOYCOTTING PRODUCTS FROM ALL THE ABOVE MENTIONED NATIONALITIES. WHEN SOMEONE IS BORN IN ISRAEL, THEY ARE GIVEN ISRAELI CITIZENSHIP. THIS MEANS THAT WHEN THEY OPEN A BUSINESS, IT'S AN ISRAELI COMPANY OR ORGANIZATION. SO BEFORE WE BOYCOTT ISRAEL, LET'S BOYCOTT EGO AND MAKE SENSE OF REALITY. #amen 🙏🏾 #bds. #bdsmovement

A man is just a simple man, first one like the second one... we differ from each other in such a similar way and disappear like stones in water... - not my words, a great Polish poet Ewa Lipska said that, I just tried to translate into English... these lines immediately came to my mind when I was processing this photo, which was taken in Marseille from the big wheel. Nice Sunday everybody!! // Człowiek to taki zwykły człowiek, jak pierwszy człowiek drugi człowiek... różnimy się jedynie tak bardzo podobnie i przepadamy jak kamienie w wodę... - kto pamięta ten wiersz Ewy Lipskiej, śpiewany przez Turnaua? Mnie od razu przyszedł do głowy, kiedy obrabiałam to zdjęcie, zrobione w Marsylii z diabelskiego koła. Miłej niedzieli wszystkim! #ewalipska#turnau#grzegorzturnau#weareallthesame#fromabove#simpleman#poetrylovers#poetry#lookandsee#simplelife#poezja#whereareyougoing#mindfulness#openyoureyes#marseille#bigwheel
