'It is so overused the phrase, ' I am not the reflection of the perception you have of me'. To the extent that the pure meaning of it has been distorted and almost become meaningless. I write from life experiences and those events that have occurred somewhere in this world. I am no fool to society's expectations of what I offer as an individual. However, as a woman, I know only too well that the division between the sexes is something that has been an external hindrance in some cases.I claim not to be a woman of changing how other women think, nor do I consider myself a feminist or one that will 'burn my bra'. No thanks, that is something I am proud of wearing. Not only do I like wearing a undergarments - I also like the fact I am a woman. As a child bearer, I am that woman. I do not care the older and wiser I am becoming about what others 'may' be thinking, saying or reacting to my actions, words, challenges and each time I reach that goal. My soul is everlasting. It will reflect further than the visual refection of the human form.' ~ RC #hope #eyes #mylife #bully #nomore #blackandwhite #love #life #iamnotstupid #grief #loss #mirror #myreflection #writer #poet #author #Australia #Melbourne #messages #italian #italiangirl

yesterday, i thought a lot about my best friend Lori, who died suddenly in 2013. i think of her often, but especially on her birthday. my heart was aching, and then mid-day, Mom and I received a call to tell us that a long-time family friend had passed away that morning. . tears flowed as i realized that i will never again hear the distinctive voices of these two remarkable women, who each made an indelible impact on my life and who i am. . Lori was my best friend for 37 years and went through pretty much everything with me, in one way or another... Phyl was my grandma Ward's friend, then my Mom's, and mine. Three generations of women in our family have been blessed by her friendship and she was truly family. now one of her daughters is carrying that on, in her friendships with Mom and i. Phyl knew me from my infancy, and was a bit like a 'backup grandma' to me, especially after my grandma Ward passed away. . while i grieve the loss of their physical presence, i recognize that i have been so blessed to have these kinds of women, these kinds of friendships, in my life... i can hear their voices and laughter in my memory, know their love in my heart, and so keep them with me always. because #loveiswhatlasts . . . #gratitude #presence #friendship #loss #grief #love #bibleverses #whatthebiblesays #biblequotes #harddays #tears #sayinggoodbye #blessed #justmedebkennedy #mondaymood #mondaymusings

It often takes loss to appreciate what we have. It is in those moments that we do a gut check about who we are, what we are doing and why it all matters or what really matters. Tomorrow is not promised and it is truly the dash between the dates of our birth and our death that tells the story. Don’t let the dash be filled with regrets. Fill it with purpose. Find yours and live it relentlessly. #lifequotes #lifeanddeath #loss #quotes #liveyourlife #bestlife #dreams #dreamer #happy #happylife #purpose

Emotions are just paint. Pain, loss, joy, love... it’s all just color. Stray from them and you’re left feeling empty... broken.. without color and without meaning. ( so i was my own personal model for this picture 😂 it was really interesting posing for this but I think it worked). #art #paint #watercolor #love #loss #joy #pain #model #myself #gay #pride #express

I’d forgotten how incredibly rewarding yoga practice can be. I took a class tonight after almost a year of not practicing and let me tell you, it has brought me back to life! All the anxiety and restlessness I felt all day today has magically dissolved tonight. My body is incredibly tight, more than I realized, but I am setting goals for myself in getting back a strong, healthy and fit body. Making today count; Mind, body, and soul 🧘🏻‍♀️ . . at HAWT YOGA

When Life Throws You Curve Balls, Don't Eat Them! with Vickie Griffith of @BreakThroughEFT Tuesday, January 22 | 6:00-7:00pm 2100 SE 17th St, Suite 110, Ocala, FL 34471 When life throws you a curve ball -- just like in the movies -- for a split second everything slows down as the moment of #trauma unfolds. It could be a #caraccident, #loss of a loved one, or #termination of a #job. Every #painful moment is categorized in your mind and body to be experienced over and over again as edginess, #anxiety, #bloating, and #cravings. Your #coping mechanism kicks in to help you deal with the situation. Unfortunately, many of these coping mechanisms will help you zone out for a bit and then the #guilt, anxiety, and #shame creeps in. This can stop for you, and it is easier than you think. - Learn how to create #constructive coping mechanisms. - #Create clearly so you can make #wise decisions and handle the situation in a confident impactful way. - Experience a 30 second technique that reduces #stress. https://www.facebook.com/events/513919952453288/ #copingmechanism #reducestress #wellness #ocalawellness #stressrelief #stresseating #blissocala #weightlossjourney #mentalhealth #foodcravings #eft #tapping

"Purify your heart. Then follow it." - Yasmin Mogahed. ❤ Hearts are pure. It is our actions that pile dirt on them. But just like wudhu (ablution) washes off dirt from the skin, hearts can be cleansed too. The wudhu of the heart is the remembrance of Allah and the recitation of the Quran. They wash the heart with snow, rain, and hail until the pure heart shines once again. Hearts can also be broken. When a heart is broken, it seems like the break will never mend again. In pursuit of healing, we often look for it in temporary beings. Hence what follows is yet another heartache. My little brother said to me, "If a heart is full of cracks, temporary love will eventually escape through and leave the heart empty. But if you let Allah bandaid the damage and seal the heart's wounds, the heart will become full again." And this time it won't break, because in it lies its mender. #Allah #God #mend #broken #heart #love #heartbreak #heartache #peace #depression #anxiety #sorrow #loss #wudhu #ablution #writing #words #deep #ponder #worry #stress #yasmin_mogahed #healing

Happy Monday, everyone. It’s time for everyone’s favorite segment... BUY! BUY! BUY! SELL! SELL! SELL! . . Buy: Sonny Gray (for the 2nd week in a row): Things are really looking up for Sonny Gray. He gets a new team, gets paid, and gets into a good situation all in one day! Buy: Cardinals/Cubs rivalry: i’ve seen a ton of people angry about all this Kris Bryant and Yadier Molina talk this week. Chill out, people. It’s things like this that makes sports fun!! I want to create this narrative because both teams are gonna be good this year. Buy: Josh Harrison: In an offseason in which the market has played a lot of free agents, Harrison is set up to get a nice payday, likely in the coming days. It may be I moved that you don’t pay close attention to it but it will be highly impactful. Sell: Atlanta Braves: after making a flurry of moves to start the Atlanta Braves appeared to have hit a crossroad in what to do next. They still have holes in the Outfield and bullpen that they need to address, and nobody knows what the plan is to address those issues. Sell: Cleveland Indians’ Patience: If any team needs anything really bad it’s the Indians and outfield. I thought that Pollock was almost in their lap, but it seems that ship has sailed. There are options out there, but it seems the Indians window is closing and they don’t want to attack Houston, New York, or Boston. Sell: Evan Longoria Trade Market: The Giants want to shop Longo, but it doesn’t seem like there are takers. You can’t feel bad for either party, because this is what they both signed up for last offseason . . . #mlb #mlbmemes #buy #sell #buyselltrade #buysell #sonnygray #cincinnatireds #newyorkyankees #yankees #chicagocubs #cardinalsbaseball #traditionalbaseball #clevelandindians #windians #loss #atlanta #atlantabraves #superbowl53 #evanlongoria #giants #giantsbaseball #fresh #pittsburghpirates #joshharrison #mikemoustakas #baseball

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows ~ I love these words as a reminder to find joy. I believe it's possible through anything, I really do. And that's from my own life experiences, and a world I have travelled and worked and seen trauma and devastation. Yet so much beauty through pain. I've worked in places where I've seen communities come together, people have resiliently kept going and carrying on, and have found joy. I will never forget a time in Cambodia. I had been working in a safe shelter for children. And we had a playground where these children would play and laugh and run around so freely, after experiences so horrific, we can't even imagine. Yet this joy never left them. Give them space to grow and nurture them with love and look at what happens. It's never left my heart, memories of my times there. In our own lives, tragedy can happen, adversity, such hard times and things we live through, our whole world can feel as if it's turned upside down. Some things cannot be fixed, but we carry them. And the load does feel less over time. It does, it shifts, and there's no time frame or comparison to anyone else along the way. It lessens and lightens in a deeply personal and sacred way. Our journeys are our own. You don't walk in my shoes, and I don't walk in yours. But we can walk alongside one another, as companions, gently, compassionately, doing the best we can for each other and ourselves. Joy is possible through anything. I know it is. Through grief, illness and disease, through trauma, adversity, through it all. It doesn't ever mean that those experiences are not valid or not acknowledged. It's just that the depth of pain lightens and lessens and we feel ourselves moving towards what's true within ourselves, more joy, more love. When we're ready, when we choose, when we know in our hearts that it's time, it's quite amazing what shifts start to happen. Start to notice, and you'll see ... (more below)

Just because you can’t see me DOING THE WORK of grief doesn’t mean I’m not DOING THE WORK of grieving. 🔬 Grief takes physical energy, mental headspace, and emotional labor just like a bona-fide “job” job. Thanks to @noraborealis for this insight from her book It’s Okay to Laugh (Crying Is Cool Too). 💚 #shelbyforsythia #whatimreading at Chicago, Illinois

Sometimes we lose our friends. We lose our loves. Sometimes we lose our fur babies. He was my heart my beautiful bad luck baby and I miss him so much it hurts. It’s okay to have a cry when you hurt, it’s okay to be human and show vulnerability. It’s not weakness. When the time comes hopefully a long time from now, he will be waiting for me. ❤️ . . . #catsofinstagram #catsofinstagram #catsofinsta #furbaby #furbabylove #lostfriends #loveyouforever #loss #myheart #myhearthurts #youwillbemissed #smilethroughthetears #love

“Do you think I’m doing alright?” I asked. Tears we’re drying into sticky salt on my face and down his arm. I’d spent the whole day in bed; I had managed only to take my medicine and vitamins, to go to the kitchen to eat, and, finally to shower and put on clean pajamas. Now it was almost midnight and I couldn’t sleep. 3 weeks to the day after our loss. He stroked my hair and held me, the shuddering over, while I let in deep, cleansing breaths. “I think you’re getting through it,” he said. The day before I’d been to yoga, spent hours in my study writing, reading, researching, responding to messages of condolence, and sending practical emails. Grief is not depression, though they bear striking resemblances. Grief is wild and holy. Grief has no corners to turn, no progress to make. Grief is the roaring of life in the face of death. Grief is the tender thing we answer to now, the born-thing for which we care, together, and apart. Every night, well after dark, I sit in front of a lit candle and rock. “I surrender,” I chant. “I surrender. I surrender.”

AUSTRALIAN OPEN🇦🇺 2019 ————————————— We all hate early exits, especially at majors, but it is even worse if one wasn’t able to play at his 100% because of injury. Well, Dominic was forced out of the Australian Open🇦🇺 after not being able to compete at his level and loosing 5-7 / 4-6 / 0-2 before retiring against Alexei Popyrin🇦🇺.

I had a dream last night that Justin came back. I have dreams of him often and I honestly wish I wouldn’t have them at all. You may think it would be nice to be able to at least be with him in my dreams, but the pain of waking up is much worse. After waking up from one of those dreams my whole day is off. I feel more depressed than usual and don’t have the desire to do anything. I feel sadness when I look at this picture. We were so happy and we thought we would have a whole life time together. Little did we know. Missing him extra today. 💔
