I'm so proud of this logo. It was designed by a woman of many gifts and talents. A women across the United States. (We are in LA) A women with a heart to support those in need. Thank you @colleentrusler It may seem like such a simple thing, but a logo says a lot about what it represents and what it means. This logo stands for peace, healing, unity, forgiveness, advocacy, education, and empowerment. That's a lot of words, but a lot of truth, and I'm very very excited and proud to share this with you all. There's so much more to come!! May God bless you always. #mybodymyheart#peace#unity#advocacy#education#forgiveness#healing#movingforward

A year ago, I lived at home with my parents after having no choice but to come home from college due to treatment debt. I love them, but staying in my house all day was unbearable. For about 3 months, I spent most days sitting on the floor at Barnes and Noble, reading books that I knew I couldn't buy & bring home. I'd be there for up to 8 hours at a time with my notebooks & art supplies trying to distract myself from the living hell that that stage of my journey took place in. I'm going to talk about what some of my situation was at the time in my next post, because it would take away from the point of this one. But things were really, really shitty. I called the suicide hotline multiple times and was stuck in a place of not being able to afford another round of treatment, but barely hanging on to hope without it & having been ripped away from my life that was 2,000 miles away. My days at Barnes and Noble saved my life; I don't know what I would've been engaging in or doing if I were not there reading dozens of books. It was the best treatment that I could afford to have at the time, and I had to push myself to go every single time. Recovery is pushing yourself to do something other than a behavior every single time. Every. Single. Time. Until it becomes habit. It's really hard, but so rewarding, and entirely possible. •
@rmdrk was one of the first poets whose books I read cover to cover. I saw this poem of his today and had that familiar "bless this man" feeling so I wrote it out in my sketchbook to keep it close to me on the days that I need to hear it again. •
What is so unique about my experience is that I have not always been the "good" person. I have been the manipulator, the person who has not found themselves yet, the one who dragged others down because being miserable was too much to bear alone. I have tried to turn out people's lights, hating their warmth & seething at the sight of their happiness. I used to hate myself. Really, really hate myself.
Now I am on the receiving end of this poem. And I love myself more than I love any of the people who have reached for my "off" switch. The people who make you feel shame for being you? Let them go.
Today I ran for Education.
There were many advocacies to choose from -- poverty, hunger, disaster preparedness, children and youth, etc. -- but I chose education, because I believe that knowledge is power and that the children are our future. HAHA.
Anyway thanks iVolunteer BayaniRun (Advocacy Run) 2017!!! It was a nice event to promote volunteerism and running!!! ✌🏼️✌🏼✌🏼 It was also inspiring to see the different NGO's and advocacy groups!!! 😍😍😍 #10k#ivolunteerph#bayanirun#advocacy
In order to make the most use of our lives it is important that we go into the world, and leave as big of a mark on it as we possibly can. Not just any kind of mark, but a mark that will encourage others to encourage others. A mark that will inspire others to inspire others! A mark that will inspire unity, love, peace, and hope! Every day is a new day and a new beginning, whether we realize it or not we have the ability to inspire others from across the world by just showing that we care.
It is important to go into the world and make a success for yourself, but only if you are going to use this success in order to help other people in the world succeed. Actual wealth cannot be measured by how much money or material items you may have, wealth can truly only be measured by the number of people that you helped make a positive enough impact on to succeed as well by the end of your lifetime.
Via 📷 @mtryrapecrisis: “The other day I was talking to a young girl about her school’s dress code. She shows me her shoulder and says "HOW IS THIS DISTRACTING ANYONE? You're distracting me by telling me my clothes are not appropriate when there is nothing wrong with them!" Girls who speak up like her are going to help change societies view on certain dress codes.” 💪👏👏👏
Got to spend an amazing day with these two ladies at #CounterTraining . Learned so much more than what I already knew about our product development and our strict standards and our transparency and how much work there is left to do through education and advocacy. That's what sets our company apart! We are fighting for everyone. So proud to be on this mission with you! Plus, the food and the swag were beyond amazing! 😍#beautycounter#CounterTraining#betterbeautybosses#bcgivingclub#advocacy
Today is the last day of Invisible Disabilities Week. Today at Target, a man watched while I got out of the car because I hadn’t gotten my crutches yet from the backseat and I can always see as people are checking to verify if I’m “disabled enough” to meet their standards—even though some of the time I use no visible mobility aid.
I have a permit.
Today at the mall, an able-bodied person “only needed a few things quick” and took this handicap parking space and the loading area next to it someone like me could have used to unload their crutches or wheelchair. My fiancé alerted security but they left before they could be ticketed.
They had no permit. Thanks for encouraging advocacy this week, @victonation —my fiancé felt empowered to say something! #ehlersdanlossyndrome#invisibledisability#awareness#chronicpain#chronicillness#dontbeadouche#disability#advocacy#zebrastrong
Couldn’t agree more with @moby. ・・・
Dear activists, every minute you spend criticizing one another and in-fighting is a minute lost trying to make the world a better place. We don't have much time, and we don't have many resources, so if you care about your activism you will stop criticizing one another and stop in-fighting and take your activism seriously and fix the world.
