To start, if you or someone you know is in a time of crisis and need help, PLEASE give them this number and help encourage them to call the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255
We all have heard stories about higher #suicide rates around the holidays. First things first, @huffington_postdc @thenewyorktimemagazine and so many other places like myself are trying to dispelled this myth. I did law enforcement, EMS, and fire and studied with the CRISIS Intervention Team, and there are some signs to look out for which I'll explain later in this post below. I had a whole part of my family die together in a Christmas fire from bad Christmas lights, and when I was little, I was the last person my Grandma spoke to before she died Christmas Eve/Christmas Morning and I post this because I know how hard the holidays can be for some of us. Always tear up thinking about it too.
I just want this post to reach those in a bad #mindset and pick you up off your feet and keep fighting. I know it's hard and I'm sorry for whatever pain or troubles you're going through in life but just know this. I love you, and no matter what, I know the people you love wouldn't want you gone either. So #dontgiveup and keep going. I promise you you'll be glad you kept going. I BELIEVE IN YOU!
Now to continue my point earlier, the signs to look for in a potential suicidal person#
1)Always talking or thinking about death
2)Clinical depression -- deep sadness, loss of interest, trouble sleeping and eating -- that gets worse
3)Having a "death wish," tempting fate by taking risks that could lead to death, such as driving fast or running red lights
4)Losing interest in things one used to care about
5)Making comments about being hopeless, helpless, or worthless
6)Putting affairs in order, tying up loose ends, changing a will
7)Saying things like "it would be better if I wasn't here" or "I want out"
8)Sudden, unexpected switch from being very sad to being very calm or appearing to be happy
9)Talking about suicide or killing one's self
10)Visiting or calling people to say goodbye
So, if you see someone exhibiting these signs try and reach out to them. Show them there's people that care❤

Good Night Dolls😚

Just one Follower or even one shout out from one person can turn and change things for Good👌
Surprise date night for me as the hubby and I have been like passing ships. I opted for the chicken and side salad as this was the least calories!!!! Even less than the Fraser salad! I left the gnocchi I’m not a fan anyway but still within my calories for the day! #winner#datenight#goals#IIFYM#dontgiveup
I had a great time working with Akon earlier this year! My company helped book 2 sold out shows for him in Ontario! Him and his team were some of the most professional and standup people I've had the chance to work with. He's incredibly humble and down to earth treating everyone the same. I learn from greats like this on how to always remind myself that no matter how much I've accomplished and how many shows I've done or countries I've performed in that I'm the same as everybody else. Just a person trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun while living it and inspire others to do the same. You would be surprised at how many artists i meet that havn't accomplished shit but act like they're gods gift to earth. The ones who make the most moves do so without needing to brag or boast. Their actions speak for themselves. This is the musician I strive to be. To never forget where I came from.
Big ups to my manager Jeff @bardownsebs at
@cabinevents and my agent Val at @itouragency for all the amazing opportunities they give me to be around people like Akon so I can learn and grow.
Next up I open for @seankingston in Kitchener on Dec 8th.

That's me👆, issue weight ni mmg dah bertahun-tahun. Dah tak ingat bila last report yang tercatat angka kilogram tu under 'berat ideal', mesti exceed limit. Kalau tak overweight, mesti tick under obes. Dilema kan..bila turun 1kg, naik berkg-kg😅, rasa give up je! Mana silapnya, sebab heavy-eater? No workout?? Too happy?? Actually macam2 alternatif dah try. Honestly, yang paling berjaya dan ada improvements cuma bila jaga makan and exercise.
Last year November I cuba Jamu Tun Teja, sebab rasa bagus bila go through all the benefits. Masa tu just plan nak jadikan back-up and support supplement. After 3 months consumed JTT, obvious sangat rasa kesan bila body makin energetic, appetite makan pun tak heavy mcm selalu (which all this susah for me), plus ada perubahan on my skin as well (will highlight on my next post). Start berjamu ni tak extreme pun, I slowly and continuously ambil sampai dapat momentum, bila badan mula ada tenaga, baru semangat nak teruskan daily routines especially part workout (before memang tak larat). From walking, to slow-jog, kemudian dapat upgrade heavy sikit - squats. Body yg berat ni dah makin biasa. Lebih selesa. Badan tak rasa berat, lutut pun tak sakit bila work-out. Naik tangga 7 tingkat you, even still mencungap ..Tetap puas hati! I am more active yippieeee💪 #trustyourself#youcandothis .
Less than a year, all that hard work paid off, no regret to invest for JTT, syukur sangat daripada size XXL, now back to XL, ada juga outfits yang lepas sarung size L, wheeee. So happy, walau kadang tu tergoda iman nak crossline, terus ingat balik time pernah touched sampai Triple XL, takut! (tengok gambar 2016 tu, lengan ya ampun)! Taknak ada episod ulangan dah, sayang pulak my new curves yg ada ni, mesti mau jaga baik2 haha😆
I want a healthy lifestyle, In Syaa Allah will carry on and get one! Health awareness sangat penting you alls, jadi jangan sekali-kali ambil mudah macam I dulu, sampai bagi risiko tinggi, tak sedar. Ok, hope my story will give you more inspiration! Love 🌸E.F
Merhaba arkadaşlar. İlk paylaşımımızı palme ile başlatıyoruz. Yeni sınav sisteminden önce kitap aldığım için bitirmeden yeni kitap almanın yük olacağını düşündüm. Bu kitabı bitirince kendime ödülüm yks/tyt test kitapçıkları almak olacak 😋😊Bugün motivasyonu yüksek tutup böyle bir sayfa açmaya karar verdik. Hem not hem motivasyon kasacağız İnşallah. Takipte kalın!😊😉
I’m just grateful period. Grateful that I actually finished, grateful for all the wonderful lessons learned and grateful for the struggle inherent with this experience. What I can say I found most challenging was trying to create change in a body that was pretty fit to start. But I finished y’all & im finna eat! 🙌🏾 We are all winners in my book. Best of luck to all of this cycles challengers. May we all win! Happy Thanksgiving @heatchallenge @iamtherealdp #heat2k17#iloveyalltho
We all have anxieties about the future, things we want to happen, things we don't. The most overwhelming thing is when the Worst Case Scenarios play through our head drowning out the possibility for anything else. How to deal with this unrelenting anxiety, how to let go of fearing the unknown and let in the unknown of possibilities?

Am not a fan of long epistles but I won’t let this year go by without saying a BIG THANK YOU TO JESUS... This year “WAS”the most challenging year I’ve ever witnessed in my life and not worthy to mention .. woke up one day and thought is it worth it ? But I stood up and was praying I started like this “My God I have no other but you I serve no other but you I have put my trust in man and they have failed but this morning I look up to you and ask “IF” you are .... scratch that ...I take it back lord “ .. I continued and said “ BECAUSE I KNOW YOU ARE GOD “ I ask for this .. it was the shortest prayer from a broken heart 💔 with tears in my eyes I went to work masking all my pains from everyone .. Little did I know that God would honor a prayer from a broken heart and not my jumping up and down and screaming on top of my lungs kinda prayers ... in less than 4hours you proved to me a sinner that YOU ARE GOD AND YOU NEVER FAIL I never expected or dreamt of or thought of how you could do this .. then I remembered what I always hear from my pastor “ God will let you exhaust all your options until u realize he’s the real deal ... folks only GOD can turn a dirty situation around , only jesus can save and I’ve learnt woe unto him that puts his trust in man .. Above all he hears u when u pray and whilst u are still asking do not doubt at the right time he will perfect al that concerns you ... may the good lord visit us all with outstanding miracles AMEN ! 🙏🏾#iamatestimony#ialmostgaveup#onlyjesus#thisismytestimony#grace#icansmileagain#holdontojesus#dontgiveup#yetiwillpraisehim#askandyoushallbegiben#seekandyoushallfind#ipinchmyselfifthisisreal ... THANK YOU JESUS FOR SHOWING UP !
