I’ve got to remind myself of this in my everyday life. One of life’s lessons that is easier said than done. However We all must learn from our mistakes. However our victories and our failures tell of us allot about ourselves. We can learn from both and use them to propel our quality of life. We can also use the guidelines to find our inner peace. Inner peace is different for everyone of us. We all have a different path to follow on to reach to find there own definition of personal enlightenment. #enlightenment#traqulity#innerpeace#victory#wayoflife#art#growth#consiousness#explore#exploretocreate#visionaryart#vision
"Rivers all over the world are carrying large amounts of plastic into the sea but a new study has identified that just ten huge rivers – eight of them in Asia and two in Africa – are responsible for transporting as much as 95 per cent of the planet’s total ocean waste. Their enormous plastic footprint is down to them being huge rivers, with huge nearby populations and poor waste collection services, according to the research by the Helmholtz Centre for Enviromental Research in Germany.
The biggest plastic carrier, China’s Yangtze River, transports as much as 1.5 million tonnes of into the ocean every year. This compares to 18 tonnes a year by The Thames – which many would argue is still way too high but considerably less than the world’s worst river offenders.
Dr Christian Schmidt, of the Helmholtz Centre, said improving waste management in the river’s catchment areas would go a long way to curbing the plastic pollution problem. “In countries such as China and India municipal waste is not all collected and even it is it is often not properly dumped. Improving waste management in these countries should help to reduce the plastic pollution in rivers,” he told i.
The study is published in the journal ACS’ Environmental Science & Technology. The researchers analysed dozens of research articles on plastic pollution in waterways. The studies involved 79 sampling sites along 57 rivers around the world.
The ten biggest plastic carriers and which seas they feed: Yangtze; Yellow Sea, Indus; Arabian Sea, Yellow River; Yellow Sea, Hai He; Yellow Sea, Nile; Mediterranean, Meghna; Bay of Bengal, Ganges; South China Sea, Amur; Sea of Okhotsk, Niger; Gulf of Guinea, Mekong; South China Sea..." #awareness#plastic#plasticpollutes#ganges#mekong#water#rivers#ocean#asia#yangtze#pollution#cambodia#india#uk#britain#thamesriver#nile#china#vancouver#newyork#portland#berlin#germany#environment#wayoflife#seawater#sealife
This evening I decided that I wanted to make something using zucchini and shrimp. I took the shrimp and sautéed it in “REAL” butter, grated the zucchini, mixed mozzarella cheese, small amount of cream cheese and a splash of heavy whipping cream.....this is what happened. I wasn’t disappointed and even my son thought it tastes good.
"Women shopping at Clicks stores are now able to purchase reusable, eco-friendly Subz sanitary pads while simultaneously supplying young women in disadvantaged communities with these lifechanging products, all for only R29.95.
Developed, designed and manufactured by Sue Barnes, founder of Project Dignity, the Subz pads are made of five layers of specialised fabrics which earned the product a SABS absorbency approval. Barnes developed the product after learning about the dire situation in African schools whereby young women are forced to miss vital classroom time because of a lack of adequate sanitary wear.
Because of the cost of sanitary products, many families simply can’t afford to buy pads and it is believed that young women are missing up to a week of school a month during menstruation,” explained Sue Barnes, founder of Project Dignity. “While we will continue with our activations which aim to provide all young South African women with reusable sanitary pads, we are thrilled that the public is also able to purchase these user-friendly products, all while supporting the Girls on the Go campaign.” Retailing at R29.95 per item, the sanitary towel is an incredibly cost-effective option as it is reusable for three to five years. It is also an eco-friendly sanitary solution which is comfortable for the wearer.
Because of a lack of menstrual sanitation products, African school going girls miss vital classroom time which negatively affects their educational performance, diminishing future opportunities. To reduce school absenteeism and improve educational benefits of these young girls, KwaZulu-Natal resident, Sue Barnes, developed Subz Pants and Pads, a reusable, eco-friendly sanitary pad that clips onto a 100 percent cotton panty which lasts a minimum of five years..." #mooncycle#poverty#period#periodproblems#womensrights#girls#humanrights#menstruation#menstrualcup#humanity#awareness#clothpads#women#african#projectdignity#education#vancouver#toronto#newyork#uk#britain#wayoflife
During my last week of dietbet I was feeling sick and wasnt eating very much even though I maintained my workout schedule. 💦💪🏽In that time I noticed that my decreased calorie consumption did not equal more weightloss. 🤔Leading me to realize that undereating doesnt work for my body.

POPCORN 🍿🍿Normally I go for veggies but I havent gone shopping yet... What are some of your fav snacks? #popcorn#onthehealthyside#weightlossjourney#fattofit#snacks#wayoflife#findwhatfeelsgood#instafit#learningtobehealthier#happy
A little fact on me -
I've been in the woods since I was 3 years old,
Finally killed my first deer at 8,
My first Buck at 9,
But to say what comes to my mind when someone ask "why do you hunt?" , I'm going to have to says when I think of hunting, I think of that crispy cold feeling, watching a sunrise from a treetop, hearing the crack of stick and all of the sudden you learn not to move a muscle, I remember being little and following my dad threw the woods when he stopped and snapped his fingers I had better stop dead in my track 'cuz most likely he had seen a deer', but I remember coming back to camp and joining everyone around a campfire, people asking you things like "did you get one?" 'Which I answered no' they'd say "well that's okay,we all know you'll get one before it's over!" -
Hunting taught you to provide,
to only take what your going to eat,
Being excited when someone else got one,
I'll always be thankful to be raised as a hunter! -
