This is a pretty hilarious recreation pic of a pose envisioned by my mum @bvogue.boutique • she loved taking photos of us when we were kids and thought it would be a good idea for me to stretch my arms out wide like a tree during our trip to Muskoka Woods. I remember being so exhausted of taking pictures and I so didn’t understand her vision. In the original picture I was wearing a pink bandana, orange shirt, and green khakis. I was ready to run around and adventure. You couldn’t stop me if you tried! If you did, you could see the irritation in my face. Now, when I pass by a forest or even a single tree, I try to recreate the photo every time. I try to imagine the stillness my mum wanted to capture. I can’t go back and tell 7 year old me that it’s important to pause and take rest. I was too busy living! Today, I try to do a bit of both. I try to rush around and live in the moment, but to always remember to pause, take it all in, and maybe even snap a picture. Memories are funny like that; some stand out, most alter with perspective, and others fade. 🌿🌲 • • • • • #Memories #Memoir #Nature #Meditation #Fundy #Explore #Hike #Travel #Maritimes #MentalHealth #LoveYourself #WriterLife #KeepBusy #Strength #YouAreWorthy #SelfLove #LoveEachOther #Listen #Compassion #Kindness #StrongerTogether #OurFuture #RaiseYourVoice #YQG #BorderCity #Windsor

What can YOU do to empower the females around you? • Sometimes, just words of encouragement are enough! From a very young age, girls are told 'no' for various things and many times this 'no' doesn't have an explanation. Overtime, we begin to internalize it and think there are some things we will never be able to do simply because we are females. Imagine what a world we would be living in if girls weren't told 'no' right off the bat but instead were encouraged to do anything they dreamt of? Perhaps the power of that possibility is what scares our community so much from saying 'yes, you can do it' instead of 'no'. • Empower the girls and women in your life. Help them reach their full potential. Tell them they can break all sorts of barriers and achieve whatever they wish to! • #womenpower #empoweringwomen #womenempoweringwomen #menempoweringwomen #genderequality #raiseyourvoice #lifteachotherup #womenpower #girlpower #femalepower #feminism #southasian #southasianculture

When Natalie and I were 7, our school friends were murdered. These beautiful twin boys were shot dead, along with their mother and grandparents. 11 years later and Dunblane happened. These events last a lifetime. The pain they cause affects whole communities and last forever. But after Dunblane, an incredible group of people - friends of the bereaved families - formed the Snowdrop Campaign which lobbied for a total ban on private handguns. It was spearheaded by an amazing woman called Ann Pearston and thanks to their work, this small, private group were successful and achieved the introduction of a new law - a total ban on privately owned handguns. And there hasn’t been a school massacre here since. Not one... This is what one small group of affected people can do. And I want America to take note of that. _________________________ I put off posting this speech because I find it so utterly devastating and shootings like this are a personal trigger but it’s important to amplify the voices of girls and women all over the world who are fighting for the things that matter so please watch Emma González, a student and friend of those who lost their lives last week. She calls out POTUS and demands change. And she’s a hero. And just as Ann Pearston did 22 years ago, I hope her voice gets heard and action is taken so that no other child loses their life/sibling/friend in such horrific circumstances. . . . . #emmagonzalez #girlpower #raiseyourvoice #thefutureisfemale

Don't forget to vote today! Scott Walker & his conservative corporate buddies have 5 of the 7 WI state Supreme Court judges in his pocket, totally willing to do their bidding with little regard for the citizens' interest. I voted Tim Burns, & I encourage you to check him out and hopefully do the same, but most importantly, let your voice be heard! Also, you can vote for your local alder, which directly affects your community, & your vote matters much more in these smaller elections since voter turnout is a fraction of bigger elections, and are much more consequential in your and your neighbors' lives that president, congress, or even state reps. Our children, senior citizens, & other vulnerable populations are counting on you! ✊🏼 #vote #voting #votingday #progressive #civicresponsibility #statesupremecourt #timburns #getupstandup #raiseyourvoice #wistatesupremecourt #local #doyourpart #community #makeitcount #consequential #revolutionary #putyourvotewhereyourmouthis #makeadifference

I just adore this post from @elle_fit The words you choose to use have such a powerful impact on those around you and your own circumstances. They determine whether you see something as a blessing or a burden. The more your words reflect gratitude, love, growth and understanding the better relationship you will have with yourself and others around you. 💚💖

Jesse Owens won 4 Gold Medals in the 1936 Olympics. Adolf Hitler had expected this year to be a show of strength for his “Aryan Nation”. The United States won 11 Gold medals, 6 by African Americans, and 4 by Owens himself. The 1936 Olympics were held in Germany and a huge embarrassment for Hitler. What was true then is true now; we are the beauty of our people, our colors, and our diversity. #america #diversity #equalrights #olympics #blackhistorymonth #usa #history #acceptance #raiseyourvoice #love #landofthefree

"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see..." Henry D. Thoreau ~ "Seeing Now" is the fascinating exploration of truth, oppression, hidden motives, and the unhinging of a society that chooses to overlook reality to live in a semi "dream" state. I loved attending the @HankWillisThomas exhibition this evening as he uncovered culture, politics, and social injustices throughout his provocative works of art. The simple flash of a mobile camera brings the realism of his retro reflective screen prints to life. ~ Ambriel - Swipe for more visual stimulation. #ArtHausAgency #ArtLover #Museums #Explore #VisualStimulation #Screenprints #HankWillisThomas #EmpoweredWomenEmpowerWomen #WorkForIt #RaiseYourVoice #TimesUp #BetOnYourself #LosAngeles #NYC #Atlanta #Nashville #Miami #Love #Happiness #BeKind #ContentWriter #FinTech #ICO #Invest #InvestorRelations #WakandaForever #BlackPanther

my fear of looking foolish will not outweigh my fear of lost knowledge+insight. I have a voice and it is my god-given gift to use it in any way I can. questions, opinions, collaborations, laughter, anything at all that could compel a remarkable conversation filled with enrichment. fuck it. let it go. do what feels right and what you know would help you in the long run. who else are you doing this for? it all comes back to YOU. 👑⚡️☯️ #knowyourself #checkyourself #lookwithin #yourhealthmatters #yourhealthcomesfirst  #donoharm #takenoshit #reminder #progress #forgiveness #nonviolence #tenderness #compassion #giveyourselfgrace #spiritualawakening #lawofattraction #empathy #perspective #intuition #femaleenergy #staystrong #staygrounded #raiseyourvoice #raiseyourvibration #mentalhealth #emotionalhealth #selfcare #selflove #acceptance

RP @benschufitness & #8211; If I would be alone doing what I& #8217;m doing as activist, as athlete, it would be a lot harder. But there are many more people our there than you might expect that take a stand against animal exploitation. Teaming up is so important to reach a better recognition, but more importantly to strengthen your motivatin, reasons and endurance to work harder on it. If you know you& #8217;re not standing there alone against a huge industry consisting of lies, manipulation and violence as part of a daily business, you feel a lot better. Support is so important in these days where we tend to be so disconnected from each other, even though we have more communication than ever before. Let me ensure you, that you& #8217;re never standing alone out there, especially if you& #8217;re fighting on the side of justice. There are many passionate activists out there, you just need to meet them on the next occasion. This picture represents the roots of compassion vegan cycling team, a group of ambitious athletes that decided to cycle 1300km in 6 days for empathy and compassion for animals and against their exploitation by showing the world that you can be thrive and drive on a vegan diet without any restrictions. by @axel_v_sailor #veganathlete #vegancyclist #veganactivist #animalrights #activism #animalequality #plantstrong #animallover #sports #cycling #fitness #bodybuilding #aesthetics #veganism #vegancyclingteam #rootsofcompassion #justice #motivation #inspiration #teamup #team #speakup #raiseyourvoice #veganism #vegan #plantbased #endurance #govegan #justdoit #helpothers& #8230;

Happy Monday! Getting a good sleep on Sunday is pretty important to me as a mom especially at the start of a busy week. Last night my sleep was disturbed by a disparity in our community surrounding recreation and youth sports so I woke up this morning and realized I need to get involved 😏 . To continue to be complacent about such an important issue doesn’t change the ‘system’ that has caused the disparity and now my family is between a rock and a hard place. To continue to participate in this system involves paying a cost prohibitive amount of money for my children to play in a youth sport; to take my children out causes them to miss out on a fun, fit, experience that they should have equal access to 😕 . So today I mobilize and start the process of fact finding, approaching community government and forming a group to create a louder voice for this cause. . I don’t really have ‘time’ to do this but I have realized that I don’t have the time not to, so local youth doesn’t continue to be impacted by a political “match” outside their control. . I don’t know what the outcome of my efforts will be, but I know that I need to set an example for my children that there are important causes worth fighting for, and that a united voice can accomplish great things! Wish me luck...lol!! Have a great week 😀 #monday #mondaymorningmom #mondaymorning #uniteforchange

don’t stress your way into death. the more chaotic your schedule is, the more drained you will be. exhausted. lonely. burnt out. we spend too much time stressing and not enough time enjoying the experiences we are living in right now. even finding something microscopic to enjoy is enough. be very careful with how you spend your time. sometimes anxiety will find a way to beat you down just because you’re bored and not engaged with the present. note this. ☯️☝🏼🧡☯️ #knowyourself #checkyourself #lookwithin #yourhealthmatters #yourhealthcomesfirst  #donoharm #takenoshit #reminder #progress #forgiveness #nonviolence #tenderness #compassion #giveyourselfgrace #spiritualawakening #lawofattraction #empathy #perspective #intuition #femaleenergy #staystrong #staygrounded #raiseyourvoice #raiseyourvibration #mentalhealth #emotionalhealth #selfcare #selflove #acceptance

“ Everyone shall sit under their own vine and fig tree / And no one shall make them afraid.”/ They'll be safe in the nation we've made #PresidentsDay #GeorgeWashington #Hamilton Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company. If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force!

Today I want to talk about a subject I've been reflecting on over recent weeks, and especially since a sole gunman was able to kill 17 people on Valentine's Day. • One of my tasks today is putting the finishing touches to a workshop I'm delivering on Friday for @liberaldemocrat staff on leadership. • A question I've been asking myself while putting together my notes is why does leadership matter? • We see so many appalling examples of leadership: political leaders and CEOs who lie with impunity, asset strip their companies and countries, and are beholden to their paymasters. Who get away with it and don't seem to suffer any consequences. • Leadership matters. The fact is failures of leadership result in incalcuable tragedy - tragedy which in the main, affects innocent people. Like the 17 students and staff of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who lost their lives, their families and friends. • Over the weekend, I've been awed and inspired by how students have been working tirelessly to set up and share their Never Again campaign. • Student Cameron Kasky said: "My message for the people in office is: You're either with us or against us. We are losing our lives while the adults are playing around." • I've been awed and inspired by these teens. But also horrified they feel they have to step in to do what adults have failed to do. To keep children safe at school. How basic is that? • I've added a link to my profile so you can support the Go Fund Me campaign set up by @marchforourlives. I've donated. I'd like to encourage you to support these changemakers too. • • #leadership #riseup #raiseyourvoice #libdems #mondaymotivation #ENOUGH #neveragain #marchforourlives #nationalwalkout #parkland #floridashooting #powerful #feminist #followyourpath #ceo #femaleceo #womeninbusiness #femaleentrepreneur #womenentrepreneurs #businessowner #businesswoman #smallbusiness #smallbusinessowner #theeverygirl #risingtidesociety #empoweredwomen #dreambig #imagine #inspirewomen Image via @marchforourlives

Having intellectual disabilities doesn’t affect those with disabilities. They can still be educated and they work too. For example, Haben Girma, a lawyer, successfully graduated from Harvard Law School. She is blind and deaf while being successful in school and law firm. She is also a disability rights advocate and she was awarded by PresidentObama in 2013 as the “Champion of Change.” In 2016, she received two awards, “Forbes 30 Under 30, Law & Policy” and “Top 30 Thinkers Under 30, Pacific Standard.” She is very smart, even when blindness and deafness can be hard to deal with such as communication. But she figured out what she can do and she doesn’t stop her dreams from getting away from her. - GB #disabilities #habengirma #raiseyourvoice

“I never thought that I could be an actress, but I am. I never thought that I would be a presidential appointee but I am! The possibilities are endless for anyone and that is what I hope to bring to this committee - a real life example that with a supportive community and an encouraging country we can all live the American dream!”—Lauren Potter. In November 2011, Barack Obama chose this amazing, sassy, and caring young lady with Down Syndrome as the President of Committee with People of Intellectuals Disabilities. “Who is this person?” you may ask. This person is Lauren Potter. To me, she’s one of the most inspirational people to be on TV. I remember watching her portray the character, Becky in “Glee” and I remember loving how she didn’t give a rat’s butt of what other people thought of her. I remember feeling like I had someone to connect with, someone to relate to. I remember feeling like I could practically do anything. Thank you, Lauren Potter, for being such an inspiration to me. - MW #laurenpotter #beaninspiration #getinspired #disabilities #raiseyourvoice

Genocides are the worse moments that haunt the victims, even today. The victim of the Rwandan genocide in 1994, Immaculee Ilibagiza wrote the story of her life in a harsh event of killing. The airplane of the Hutu President was shot down and the President died. A French judge blamed a leader of the opposition (Tutsis), Paul, for the president’s death. He said that a Hutu Extremist shot the president so that the Hutus could kill the Tutsis. Tutsis were murdered, thrown into rivers, and 800,000 of them were killed in three months. This survivor, Ilibagiza was one of the strongest victims of the genocide. She was hiding in a three-foot by four-foot bathroom with several others for three whole months. She was a very strong believer in God, she was the only survivor in her family and her family except for one of her brothers was murdered. She is now living in the United States with new life because she forgave those who killed her family and friends. She was the one “Left to Tell” the story of her family battling in the Rwandan genocide. Equality is what matters because we are the same on the inside but different on the outside. Forgiveness is what makes us strong. - GB #equality #forgiveness #raiseyourvoice
