Right.. so I thought this video pretty much sums my life up at the moment. Today I picked a bath bomb. I thought what I picked would be the be all and end all, I thought I would have so many bubbles, maybe a tonne of glitter and see colourful explosions. But like every hope, every wish and plan I make... I get this. A strange one eyed mustachioed man staring back at me.
I'm funny right. Yeah. At least laughing will always pick 'em up. Honestly it's not really about the bath bomb, just feel rather out of sorts lately. Things are changing, people have changed and I'm not sure where I fit in with it all. Maybe that's me, I just won't ever feel comfortable or at ease. I think I'm gonna need longer than a bath to figure all this out .#wishmeluck#lifeishard#bekindtooneanother
When someone shares their favorite song, mix or artist with you they aren't always looking for you to tell them if you approve or not. Try not to be negative. Try and listen with intent to understand. That person is opening up a bit of their soul to you. Because they trust you. Be kind. Be thoughtful. Negativity may cause that person to never be open like that with you again. Something I had to learn as I grew older... #truth#bekindtooneanother#musicisevrything#letssupporteachother
Here’s an out of the box Tuesday thought! Could you say this about YOU could you choose YOU? That would really take something right, to leave all your perceived short comings and ACCEPT you as being whole and complete! Standing in authentic self love, I’m playing this game in my life as we speak, want to play? ❤️💝💖😍😘
They say that when you go on an adventure you discover so many things, not only about yourself but about the world and your surroundings. I took this crazy journey and on November 28, of 2017, I finally discovered two things. The first thing I discovered was my happiness! Finally! I just felt different, in a good way, my senses were awakened and all at once I felt everything, deeply. The second thing I discovered was the me that I had always been searching for. I'M BI SEXUAL, and I am more than okay with that. I've finally admitted to myself that it's time to embrace who you really are and work on that. I've always worked on myself physically but that's it, and being here in this new community was exactly what I needed to work on myself mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. The support system I have is such a beautiful thing. I am still the Ian that you all know and love, my bisexuality is just another piece of the puzzle that makes up my DNA, that makes me, well me! I am not gay, ( that's a whole other field) , not half in or half out of the closet, not confused and certainly not doing it for attention. I am simply very much attracted to both men and woman. That's it. So there you have it, the Moose is very much still in fact the MOOSE , definitely a happier and better version of my self. And to end this announcement, for anyone struggling out there, it's okay, you don't need to rush on discovering yourself and coming out as whatever that may be. The LBGTQ+ community is a wonderful community and we will happily accept you for who you are when you are ready. I am here for you, I can be that voice for you as long as you like. Just know you're amazing and you are loved. An as always #bekindtooneanother#lbgtqpride#wearewhoweare#loveyourselftoday#bornthisway 👨❤️👨💑👬👫🦄🏳️🌈
Not everyone is ok or perfect behind a screen. Everyone has battles, everyone has struggles and day to day problems. Everyone suffers in some ways. I am not perfect nor is my life. It's a ever growing journey. Stress is real, feeling overwhelmed is real, worry is real, depression is real, Thyroid illness is real. I am real. I am grateful and appreciative for lots in my life but Today I am tired, I am sad. I am working on it as best as I can. I am shutting off everything today and setting aside the other million thoughts in my head. To focus on me. I know I can get through this. Breath in, breath out. I am still here.
Had an absolute blast with these little ones. They affirmed to me how important it is to teach our future about kindness, not only to others but to themselves!

Running Into the week like✨ Mind set is right. Let’s execute our weekly/monthly goals. Getting out of my comfort zone has done wonders for me! Not every experience is good, but the important thing is learning how to not let a single incident steal our joy and happiness. We are in control, sometimes it just takes an experience and time to realize it.
That's just how it is. You will come across Some people in life that will value things more than time and people .. those people are always lonely even when they are not alone, they do not understand the values of Actions but only know the value of things.. #bekindtooneanother#lifesshort#bethechange
Hi @theellenshow . I'm a self taught 3D modeller from the UK. I see your 60th is coming up... so I decided to recreate your post in LEGO. As you can see, I'm a fan of your show and @lego . I would love you to see this. I would also love to do 3D work as my career, but unfortunately there is no work where I am from. I also don't have the fees to cover studying as I'm unemployed. But each day I stay happy and creative. Thanks to you, you inspire others like me.
Have a wonderful Birthday. All the best. Connor :) #bekindtooneanother#ellendegeneres#thelellenshow#ellenratemy60yearold#ellentube#ellen60

01.22.18 | Teach Them to Be Kind
Yesterday, my 5yr old daughter Rhyann and I met up with my friend Sasha Q. Who is a Portrait Photographer here in the upstate and she specializes in Kids photography. My little girl is very introverted but in front of the camera, she is charismatic and in her element. She loves it. When she got her pictures back she couldn't wait to share them with everyone. Including her teacher.
We put her hair in a ponytail this morning but unlike the braid or bun, she normally has she asked to leave it out. As I walked her into the class she was all smiles and rushing to her teacher when I heard two little girls laugh and say "Oh my GOD, YOUR hair is CRAZY!" Rhyann didn't hear it because the focus was on her teacher. As I was showing the images to her teacher you could still hear the little girls repeating it over and over, "your hair is crazy, your hair is crazy." By this point, I am getting upset and I see Rhyann look back trying to figure out if they are speaking to her and then notice her smoothe her hand down her ponytail.
The teacher realized what was going on and corrected the girl and made her be quiet. Trying to be an adult I didn't let my emotions get the best of me. I gave Rhyann her breakfast & a kiss and told her she was beautiful as I walked out. I know the teacher will handle it if it occurs again, but at the same time, it makes me sad for her. I know what that feels like. To be made fun of for traits and attributes that you love about yourself. To have girls and boys be mean to you, just because they can. It sucks, but I really need us as parents to do better with teaching our children about saying negative things to people. Also, in watching how we talk about others in front of them.
I am not perfect by any means but this was a reminder to not be that person. I will continue to teach mine to be kind but to stand up for herself. Also to know that when people make fun of you it's just them projecting their own insecurities on you.
