What a wonderful weekend we had at the very first មហោស្រពអក្សរសិល្ប៍ខ្មែរ Khmer Literature Festival. Thank you to ស្លាបប៉ាកកាខ្មែរ-Khmer Collaborative Writers for having us and to the amazing 10th graders from Liger Learning Center for participating in Jess' workshop. We look forward to next year! #KhmerLitFestival
This is a word that I often used in my self-talk in the past. This is what I called myself over and over. Wow. These days I’m much kinder to myself, and I no longer believe the message I fed myself for so long. I’ve kicked this word right out of my vocabulary!
What words do you use in your self-talk? Is it time to let them go? Try swapping them out for something more positive and more accurate. The words we use in our everyday language and in the way we talk about ourselves and our actions are so powerful. They create an energetic connection that can perpetuate their meaning in our lives, when this is exactly what we don’t want.
So... yeah, of course I HAD to choose this one. @writigcreativily 's favorite. Because this was basically the subject of my masters thesis. I focussed on what fantasy literature can teach us about the world we live in. In Dutch litary sciences fantasy isn't being taken serious, mainly because it "doesn't learn us anything about what it means to be human. I couldn't disagree more. If there's anything that teaches us about being human, it is our imagination, the things it comes up with and the way it helps us interpret the world around us :) #fantasy#escapism#fantasylit#fantasyliterature#literaryscholar

Sometimes life scares you. You suddenly find yourself facing a new, scary situation feeling like you aren't ready. Well, you are. You've already chosen what will come your way knowing that you can grow from this. We humans have free will so we can deny, we can ignore and we can get stuck in the negative. We can get stuck in suffering. Know your power. Know you can deal with what life has brought to you so far and manifest your dreams for the future. We are our own creators, we create our future no matter our past. You can say yes to life and take those fears to create joy. I choose to accept life and by doing so I am overjoyed with the gifts I receive. I live a life full of love, full of abundance, and full of happiness. I am my own creator and I choose to be my best self. 🌌
Our Saturday was a day filled with the power of Words! Wonderful orators who lovingly affirm our experiences through the written word. To spend it with my lovelies......Bonus! 💖🌸🌺 #sibahle Repost from @khanyidhlomo using @RepostRegramApp - Lovely day out with my BFF's @gmsibi and @sihle_pennyndlela at the Nirox Words Festival launch as guests of our good friend Dr. Shadi Motlana to hear Nigerian-Ghanian author Taiye Selasi. The conversation is about the meaning of Afropolitanism, inspired by Taiye's essay: Bye-bye Babar/What is an Afropolitan. Taiye believes it's all about a sincere sense of belonging...no matter where one is in the world. Taiye is also the author of the best-selling and profound Ghana Must Go. #AfricaYouAreBeautiful#Mnganinomics#ForTheLoveofReading#ThePowerofWords 🌍📚🌍

Haiii sahabat Indomaret,,, selamat malam minggu dan semoga akhir pekan anda menyenangkan yaaaa.... Dan jangan pernah merasa lelah untuk berkata dan berbuat baik kepada siapapun dan di manapun... #thepowerofwords
I feel so incredibly blessed over having the honor of being a mother.
And to have put t w o of them on this earth. Two totally different little nuggets as to personality, temper, passions - and gender.
From the very first meetings via sonogram, my only wish has been for them to make it. Make it safe through the pregnancies. To be born safely. To arrive as strong and well equipped as possible into the world.
And when they did, there was a whole new overwhelming level of love, awareness and worry that came along. The #MeToo movement is truly adressing one of the worries that is with me on a daily basis.
To have anyone ever approaching, touching or treating our babies in any way they don’t agree on. To have anyone degrade them, make them feel less, make them feel unsignificant. To make them do things they don’t want to - out of fear, out of uncertainty, out of being subjected to abuse of any kind of power position... Or for them to ever treat anyone else like that or to ever be a part of a situation where any of those things happen... I am now, for the first time since becoming a mom, a tiny bit lighter at heart when thinking of the challenges our family have ahead. All thanks to the brave women and men who now are adressing these issues. What is abuse? What is harassment? What do we / will we view as a norm and what does abuse look / feel like?
Thanks to this movement, all the ongoing conversations, the insights as to h o w b i g a problem this is and the necessity to make this world a safe place to be born into I feel we finally jumped straight to the absolutely necessary developement on this subject in the most wonderful way possible. By the sharing of stories and feelings. This movement has started something beautiful, turning bad things into hope. Belief. Trust.
Let’s raise courageous, sentient, understanding, respectful men and continously brave, strong, fearless women! Let’s bring up the first generations where these events is not the norm but if at all, the very rare exception!
And knowing how many out there will be watching and not look away - wow! Thank you, thank you (!) to everyone for sharing and raising awareness! It is everything! ❤️
