Becoming a parent has made me realize how truly amazing Halloween is. I never thought about that fact that neighbors go out of their way to provide candy and treats for no reasons other than to be kind and make it a special night for all of the trick or treaters. It honestly blows my mind how amazing everyone is! I wanted to do something this year to show my appreciation to my neighbors. I created these cute thank you cards for my kids to give to the adults passing out candy while we are trick or treating. If you’d like to thank your neighbors as well for making Halloween such a treat for your kids, then head over to the blog to download your free printables.
Sheriff Brian Roberts & Lt. Brad Evans came out to speak with our Middle & High School students this morning. The topic of conversation was Bullying Awareness & Prevention. The information they shared was very informative & brought out many emotions. They will be back tomorrow to speak to Grades 3-5. THANK YOU Sheriff Roberts & Lt. Evans for the simple reminder of being kind to one another. 💜#bethechange#bekind#BAproud
What if we didn’t have language to rely on as our main form of communication? Through my travels I have experienced many intimate moments with other humans without every saying a word. Experiences like these make me question how I communicate, and what I communicate with others. The simplicity of locking eyes for a moment, or smiling at someone, can provide instant joy in ways words can not. This was once again the case in my recent travels through Peru. I seek simplicity in my life, these moments often fulfill that need.
I’ve found myself at a loss for words surrounding this...but Me Too. I have never felt like a victim and even thought for 25 years that it didn’t affect me, my life or my relationships. I realized about 5 years ago it was a memory I suppressed in order to survive and be the glue / rock for my family and my friends. I have family who have endured far worse than me (I hope this will help them speak out too). I am one of countless women and men who have been “victimized” by a perpetrator. I was 5 years old...he locked my little sister and I in the room with him and his friend. He assaulted me while she was forced to watch, she was 3.5 years old. He was my baby sitters son’s friend...he was a teenager! 😡
I have been sexually harassed more times than I can remember...I even prided myself in being the Soldier who doesn’t get offended easily 😣. My second boyfriend (I was 19) often found it okay to have sex with me while I was asleep...No I did not say yes, damn fool I was asleep!! I am NOT a victim. I am a thriver in this world...over the years there were days and months that I barely survived....but I am here and it’s from my own will and determination to live a good life full of love, kindness and compassion.
Sexual Assault, Harassment or unwanted touching, groping etc is NEVER okay. It doesn’t matter what a wombyn (man) wear, drink, say, how they walk or talk or smell or whatever....it is NEVER justified and NEVER there fault!!! The fault will always 100% lay with the perpetrator...ALWAYS 💯‼️ #riseup#wombynriseup#stoptheviolence#inhaleloveexhalehate#werisetogether#weareone#beyou#bereal#belove#bekind#behappy#unity#exhalehate#inhalelove#instagramworthy#namaste#nobodyshame#onebreathatatime#onelove#stophatred#seethelight#thisisforme#wombynuprising

hi guys so yesterday i posted this video of me doing a new pole dance move on my story and someone of you replied to it saying something like "damn girl your body is bomb". which is incredibly sweet and kind, so thank you for that. BUT i want you guys to know. no body type is better than another. your weight does not determine your worth. loosing weight doesnt make you any prettier or cooler or kinder. just lighter.
if you love your body and the way it looks it is enough. please never ever compare your body to mine or anyone else's 🐒🌈
alsooo good new today with school we worked one day in a company for charity and i worked in the preschool of my school and now im pretty sure i want to become a kindergarten teacher. the kids are so adorable and also asked when i was coming back and stuff so im gonna try my best to go and play with them in the lunch breaks. 🐒🐒
things have changed. i still want school to be over asap so so badly but i used to have no clue what i wanted to do after and everything just seemed black. empty.
now that i have this idea colours are getting in again. it feels like a rainbow 🌈
mom said that it could be a good motivation to keep on studying now cause like i have something i want so i wanna get my degree but i kinda disagree cause i am now sure i do not need the stuff i learn in physics or history so it's so hard to have to learn it by heart. oh well.
how's your day been? 🌙🌀🌿 (also my bruises from yesterday's pole session are incredibly huge buttt its worth it😌)

Days like this I’m really struggling with bp and bpd and just my general mental health. I’ve vowed to become more spoken about my journey purely for myself (and of course anyone it may help along the way). Talking with mark made me realise not everyone will be able to understand the pain I go through, with bipolar, you tend to feel in extremes, there is no sad, there is no happy it’s one extreme or the other. Today I feel shit, but not like ah yeah this is pretty shitty, more like this is the end of the world (even tho I know it’s not) u have no choice other than to kill yourself? However, I’ve took the day off to sit in bed and catch up on Netflix; my current watch is the lady gaga documentary. I love her and it’s such an eye opening film, I actually stole this quote from her insta as today’s inspiration. #bpd#bipolar#recovery#bekind
