Hessy Levinsons was born in Berlin, Germany in 1934. Her parents, Latvian Jewish immigrants, were nearly penniless after antisemitic prejudice cost them their jobs. Still, they managed to have one of the best photographers in Berlin take baby Hessy's picture. Little did they know that their daughter was about to become the literal poster child for the "Aryan" race.
There's just something wonderful about getting a small group of people together in an isolated location, and there's something about cabins themselves that imply both horror and fun. When you go to a cabin, you're usually going to have a good time. ❄️♥️ #ColonialCo
🎶 just keep sharing, just keep sharing, just keep sharing, sharing sharing. what do we do? we share! 🎶 (*to the tune of “just keep swimming” in case you aren’t a finding nemo nerd like me 🤓) lol i know that was super lame, but that’s what i have to keep telling (singing) myself right now because it seems like every 5 seconds someone is talking about how the dang algorithm for some social media platform is changing and it stresses me the heck out. but i’m going to try to keep choosing to not let it stop me from sharing what i love with all of you. real life, that’s a huge reason why i’ve yet to find consistency in posting, but i’m attempting to adopt the mindset that if one person sees it or if one million people see it, it’s still worth sharing. anyone else constantly stressed out by this??

Let me tell you how to forgive the person who broke your heart.
You forgive them by giving yourself time to heal. This doesn’t happen all at once. This doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a slow progression. You take two steps forward and three steps back. Sometimes it won’t make sense. But you grow a bit stronger, a bit more resilient, every single day. Even if you don’t always see it. Even if you don’t always see it. You forgive them by focusing on yourself. Stop pouring your energy into toxicity. You unplug. You unfollow. Practice self-care. Reread your favorite books and go out with your best friends, laughing and remembering how good things can be when you surround yourself with positivity. Tell your broken heart it’s okay to take a break – to remember how to smile again.
You forgive them by removing yourself from the situation. The longer you dwell in it, in the heartache, the more it festers. It’s difficult , but you have to leave it alone. Honor your emotions. Honor your feelings. But don’t keep circling back. Don’t keep obsessing over what occurred. Imagine it like a ballon. Let it float away. Tell it goodbye. It can’t hurt you now.
You forgive them by accepting what they did. That doesn’t mean the pain is erased. That doesn’t mesn you suddenly think it’s okay or you’ve let them off the hook. It doesn’t mean they aren’t responsible for their actions or that you’ve forgotten what happened. It just means accepting what’s done is done. It means admitting there is no rewind button. You can only move forward. You forgive them by regaining your life. Because there’s so much more than just one person who broke your heart.
