It's not about the gun or the bat... The tattoos or the old bruises.... Scars and stripes... Scars and stripes... I pledge my allegiance... I pledge me loyalty... They don't like or want you because what... You to mean... You stand tall... You don't fold... Fuck being walked on... Your home work is completion that you never starve... Hey... I fuck with that... But you can't do it all on your own... It's not about the word can't... Even a fire ant needs his crew to carry food to there home... You can do enything, everything and that's your stamp... "Kings Queens teams of two my boo my baby my honey my cookies and milk fuck the world it's us and fuck this write and run on sentence I'm bout it if they disrespect you watch me get violent I got a mean right back hand but they got to watch out for the left one......."

Honour your sadness
Acknowledge that you try!
When you wake up each morning with sadness and dread, instantly find something you’re grateful for.
When you think you’re not doing enough, acknowledge the things you do always make time for. Acknowledge the care you have for yourself. Acknowledge how far you’ve come, and not how far you have to go. Acknowledge the fact that you always come through the dark times stronger, with a little more understanding of life.
I promise the pain you feel today will grant you with the equal opposite. I promise that you won’t feel like this forever.
I was a painfully shy child, and growing up I remember I was always embarrassed by my father who would say hello and make eye contact with every single person we would encounter. I never understood why he did that until I grew up, and started observing that people actively try to avoid making eye contact or saying hello in public! Like if I acknowledge this humans existence in the same space as me living life just like me I might implode and die. Whyyy do we think like this?! I think about all the connections I may have missed out on because I was too scared to look up, too busy to say hello, too self centered to notice what I was missing.
I can still be shy at times, but I actively, and consciously strive to be more like my dad now. Trying to give acknowledgement, and be open to connection with the people around me even if its just in the form of eye contact, and a smile. .
It amazes me when I go to events and people tell me they love my posts but don't "like" them on Instagram or Facebook.
A part of my heart breaks every time I hear this, here's why...
There are thousands of healers out there that are sharing amazing knowledge on social media.
They NEED that small acknowledgement from you for them to do more meaningful and deeper work.
When someone I care about likes my content, I feel inspired to share more because I know it's helping people that I love.
A simple LIKE or SHARE can encourage someone to keep sharing their message so that they eventually reach thousands, then millions of people.
There is a lot of power in that little button and the heart button.
So my challenge to you is to acknowledge someone who's putting out meaningful content.
Give them that small vote of confidence so they wake up tomorrow ready to share more information to help you or someone you love.
Your fingers have the power to change the world!
Lately I've been asking myself questions; What makes me happy?
What do I want from this life?
What is happiness to me?
I've realised I can't succeed without defining what success is to me.
Sunshine on my skin makes me happy. Relaxing, reflecting, reading, writing, singing, hooping, poetry, talking bout life with the people I love, learning new things, simplifying my life, getting organised.
All I really want is inner peace, to feel happy and content and like I'm growing, without compromising who I am or those I love.
This is happiness to me. Being outside, feeling the earth around me, sitting still, taking it all in, being content with where I am now, acknowledging the power in that, instead of always striving for more.
Missing my Grandfather and admiring his accomplishments and impression he left on me to strive for and use wisdom in love, health, integrity, greatness & self discipline. His book 'Whole Person Healing' showed not only his intelligence but concern for humanity. I looked up to him and he was there for me when life was challenging during my impressionable years.
Grampa, You always knew what to say to encourage me to meet my goals. I know you would be proud of me for completing my goal of being an Author myself and sharing the passion, truth & love that I carry within from your guidance. I miss our talks, I miss being in your office and labs on Penn State campus in the Materials Research Laboratory as a child. Being here in our home seeing your pictures on the wall everyday gives me a sense of peace of knowing you're still with me on my side telling me to keep going and believing. I miss your encouragement the most but I'll forever remember our relationship as grandfather & granddaughter. Thank You, I know you're proud❤🙏 #missingyou#imissyou#remembrance#family#grandfather#encouragement#guidance#love#healing#wisdom#author#accomplishment#goals#restinpeace#peace#rip#acknowledgement#familytree#legacy
What a wonderful opportunity to begin wrapping up 2018! A fabulous group of Fearless Communicators gathered for some fierce public speaking tid bits and a beautiful acknowledgment exercise where individuals shared what they wanted to be acknowledged for and were acknowledged by the audience. There was celebration, there was vulnerability and there was love. Festive Chrismakwanzukah to one and all.

A big part of mental health is acknowledging that you have an illness. Which I know is very hard to do because there is such a huge stigma on it (especially in the South Asian community). .
But before you can take strides towards getting better, the first step is to acknowledge that you need help. .
In my case, I can pin point to the exact moment I realized that I had anxiety, acknowledged that I need to go to the doctor, and researched about mental health to the point where the knowledge of it actually helped me control it better. But not everyone’s story is the same. .
So I would love to hear your stories about when and how you realized you had a mental illness? And what strides you took to get it under control? Share below⬇️⬇️⬇️
This is a fantastic challenge! Find out who’s land you are living on. It is important to think about how to connect the story of the land to our lives.

Today we celebrate the day that Americans welcomed and fed undocumented immigrants from Europe. So I want to pose a little challenge for each of you: no matter where you live on this earth, there were Indigenous people exiting in harmony with that land for thousands of years before you. So the challenge is simple.. Find out who’s land your living on. What Nation of people? What is their history? .
I’m currently in Brooklyn NY: this area has always been a melting pot with over 14 different tribes calling what was a lush fertile green island Home. *The Abenaki tribe
*The Cayuga tribe
*The Erie tribe
*The Laurentian tribes
*The Mohawk tribe
*The Mohican tribe (including Wappingers)
*The Mohegan tribe (including Montauk and Shinnecock)
*The Munsee Delaware tribe
*The Oneida tribe
*The Onondaga tribe
*The Poospatuck/Unkechaug tribe
*The Seneca tribe
The Dutch, the biggest colonisers of Manhattan in the early 1600s, began to buy land across the river in 1636. Their fortunes vastly contrasted those of the Indigenous Americans. As a result of diseases, such as smallpox, that were new to America; war; land deals that were rarely honorable; by the 1680s the Indigenous owners had lost all claims to their rolling, heavily forested Home. Comment below with where your from and who’s land you stand on! #indigenouspeoplesday#riseup #✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿 -
