NOT EVERYTHING IS SUGAR PLUMS AND RAINBOWS:
life is messy and our beautiful mother earth can get trashed.
In Mexico they don't have an organized way to deal with waste. And so you see it on the sides of the road and in the jungle.
I haven't yet looked into if any organizations are doing anything to change this but it would be interesting to know more.
That being said, do what you can as a human being to leave whatever place you visited a little cleaner. This bag was filled with trash and over flowing after just 10 minutes of picking up trash. (And not even on the public beach side!) #mothernature#sendherlove#becaring#beconsiderate
Remember that quote from Forest Gump, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get”. Every day is full of surprises, like biting into that unknown piece of chocolate we never know if we are going to like what we taste or spit it out. Life is the same way some days suck and other days we wouldn’t trade for the world, but either way life is a gift and just like with any gift we take the good ones and the bad ones with a smile even if it’s a forced smile. Life is full of surprises; you never know what will happen next. Just enjoy the journey with a smile.
Let us know what makes you smile :)

Meal #2 yesterday... because it was hot and I didn't want anything heavy.
Let the guy at the farmers market pick my cantaloupe and it was not sweet at all! But the solution to that? Add some lime juice and chili pepper and a hint of salt. Man... it tastes amazing!
How is it that we've coined the term 'chivalry is dead'
Do we (women) really enjoy the deadness of respect ?
As women, I believe we should require a level of it.
All I know is yesterday I spent time with a platonic male friend. I told him I needed to stop and get gas (in an unfamiliar area)
He met me at the gas station and began to pump my gas... I sat there kind of speechless... What happened to this? and why did I feel so awkward sitting, watching and allowing it.
I realized that ... this felt amazing in so many ways. It wasn't that I couldn't pump my own gas. It was that he wanted to do something for me, to show respect (and so that I didn't have to get my hands dirty)
I felt like a goddess to be completely honest, and I loved every second of it.
We should be treated like goddess' we really truly should !! If a friend jumps out of his car to pump my gas then my future boyfriend/husband should too.
(That's what I gathered from all this ) chivalry shouldn't die. #chivalryisnotdead#respecther#love#loveher#relationshipgoals#relationships#womenlisten#respect#friendships#honorablemention#goodenergy#happylife#settingintentions#manifest#goodmenexist#beconsiderate#conciousness#conciousfriends
There is a cultural stigma where divorced sisters are judged harshly. When a brother brings the news to his family that he's interested in proposing marriage to a divorced sister, the family objects without considering the righteousness of the sister. Nothing happens without the will of Allah swt and therefore we can't judge the sisters character on the fact that she has been divorced. I hear this post towards the divorced sister because it is mostly the sisters that bear the bad stigma. However, the advice applies to divorced brothers as well. If the person is a righteous person, then the fact that they are a divorcee should not matter. If a righteous divorcee was good enough for our Prophet (PBUH) to marry then our bad judgments and stigma should be obliterated. #ameen#islamichealing#bekindtooneanother#dontjudge#nomorestigma#beconsiderate
Well, this is a very important day for me. First: We made it to Kansas City, did our tech rehearsal for #roadtoverona hung out in union station for a while, performed on a stage that had Gregory Peck, Humphrey Bogart and The Marx Brothers perform on it and all around a good day. Second: It's my 100th Instagram post. Thank you all so much. I owe it all to you. I don't even know what else to say, except thank you. Thank you all so much. Here's to 100 more. 🎈🎂🎁🎊🍾🎂🍤🎉👠 #100thpost#thanks#skyvault#beconsiderate#reasonswhyisuckatbeingcatholic
A fb friend shared this and wanted to know why people dont understand this. I believe its not a matter of them not understanding. Its that they dont WANT to understand. Alot of people are so quick to dismiss feelings thats aren't theres. They are just mad inconsiderate and just don't understand because its never happened to them. And i hate when i try to make those people undestand but they dont wanna hear it because its "too complicated" like bitttchhh. So is dealing with you but you dont hear me complainig. 😂😒 #try#understand#beconsiderate#mentalillness#theyarereal#stopthestigma#ptsd#depression#anxiety#ocd#adhd#benice
Stay Focused on what you want, and don’t doubt yourself just because you might lose a little focus along the way. When we first start something whether it’s a job, relationship, school or new workout routine we are excited and do our best and we are super focused, but as time goes that excitement and focus kind of stalls out. Remind yourself of why you were excited in the first place and keep that why as your fuel/motivation to help you keep your eye on the prize and stay focused.
Tell us how you stay focused on your goals.

If everyone did things the way you do, what would things look like? I don't say this as a way to make everyone and everything look the same, but to make people think about how their actions impact others. #beconsiderate#bekind#bethoughtful#makeadifference
