Today is #NationalNonprofitDay , a day to celebrate all the amazing organizations whose main missions are to make this world a better place! So from your friends at GiGi’s Playhouse we would like to thank all of those who support our mission of breaking down barriers and showing the world the beauty of Down syndrome! If it weren’t for amazing people like you, we would never be able to offer all of the free life changing programs that we do. The love and support that all of our advocates give is what is allowing us to change the lives of thousands of individuals and families!! #GenerationG#BeAccepting#BeGenerous#BeKind#GiGisPlayhouse#ChangingTheWorld#beamazing#WatchOutWorld#thisishowwedo #
On my way home from work today I sat opposite a girl who was having a panic attack. I’ve never seen what happens in my brain sometimes happen to someone else and I was desperate to help her but my own demons didn’t fancy letting that happen. I thought about writing this🔝 on my phone and showing her but before I knew it I was getting off the tube having done nothing and now I feel like a horrible person 😔 she was doing great handling it and I have no doubt she was okay when she got off but now I’m going to leave this here to help anyone else who needs it instead ❤️
Не важливо з ким і за яких обставин, але треба бути чесним.
З часом нечесність переростає у нещирість, у звичку не сказати (у кращому випадку), або обманути (у гіршому випадку). Та все ж найгірше - бути нечесним із самим собою.
Треба пам'ятати, що посіяне обов'язково зійде, а от що саме - вирішувати нам.
Всесвіт постійно прагне рівноваги: за що заплатиш, те й отримаєш.

The kids wrote the message. I supplied the dollars. We keep a few envelopes in the car for when we feel led to help those holding signs on the side of the road. I let the kids decide when we give and when we just wave hello.
More important than how the dollar is spent... is helping my children learn to listen more intently to the voice saying “Jesus love us all the same” and acting upon their compassion.
How much is this needed here right now we have to ditch the every man for them selfs mentality HELP your brother or sister on the streets. People are getting younger and younger to, may not No! Necessarily able to cope out there. Giving back to society is in fact vague and misty in nature. There's so much that we procure from society. There are so many strata of people who make up the whole population of a nation. But they are different from each other. Some are affluent and some are mere stragglers of survival. In many countries, there are masses who don't even have excess to basic day-to-day requirements. There are also people who have so much in excess, that the amounts if distributed, would solve many problems plaguing most areas around the world. Always think about people of less fortunate than you. Where will they sleep or get there next meal today/night.
#besilly#bekind#behonest Every day when I drop them off I tell them to be kind. I want to raise them to be the best people they can be. People let you down on a daily basis. I want people to be able to rely on them. @slakos
My daughter and grandson and baby girl repp'n Josh's heart from Washington!

Prove it for you and not for anyone else.
No one wants it more for you than yourself.
Provide yourself with love and kindness.
Know you are worthy of letting your light shine and voice be heard in this world.
Pursue that dream of yours.
No one has control over the massive action you can take besides yourself.
Love every struggle and exactly who you are because I promise going through life feeling loved no matter what by your own self is worth more than hoping and praying everyone else will project that same love onto you.
You are worth every moment you invest in yourself and every attempt to do something great!
I'm on a hockey pitch surrounded by people, yet I feel alone. I feel as if I'm the only one fighting to stay focused. Looking around and I'm smiling at people, starting conversations and making jokes, yet I still feel different, I still feel alone.
I can't think of many other illnesses that convince you that you're alone. I remember before my diagnosis thinking that I was the only person on this earth that could be experiencing such despair and hopelessness. Everyone else seemed to be ok, yet I was trapped in this prickly blanket of sadness. Trying to give off signs that I need help but something just stops me from talking. I could talk about anything else but there was a blockage when it came to communicating those important messages.
Depression is an illness like no other though; It persuades you that you're alone. Assures you that you're the only one that feels this way. Depression shuts you down, it tells you not to reach out for help. So this message is for those that don't feel alone. Can you reach out? Can you make someone not feel alone? Can you be that bit of hope for someone when all seems hopeless?
Our next Winston Warrior is The Homeless Period Project of the Triad. We recently attended a packing party and donated supplies, it was super easy and fun. What a great cause! - You may think of your period as an annoyance but can you imagine not having pads/tampons every month? Did you know that feminine products are the least donated products to homeless shelters? Did you know that many girls in our schools do not have access to these necessities? For many women the implications of living without these necessary supplies are serious… it’s the difference between attending school or work, between peace of mind and humiliation or between infection and health. - #winstonwarriorsproject#winstonsalem#wsnc#dtws#shoplocalwsnc#thekarmacrew#dogoodfeelgood#shoplocalwsnc#theperiodproject#bethechange#bekind
This quote hit my heartstrings today! I have known some close friends to me that have been dealing with some tough roads for far too long. I feel my younger years were where my trials raged on. One of my friends is an amazing writer as well. When we were growing up I would itch to hear more when we made up stories. She is getting back into it and with her story she has much to tell and I hope in her struggles she continues to press forward! Prayers please for my friends and remember, you never know what people are dealing with inside... be kind. Smile at strangers 😊 #bekind#changeisgood#healthybody#selflove#youcandothis#fitnessmotivation
Greyston bakery start a new way to give a second chance for the ones in need for a job. Please take a time to read the short story below and for full story go to fastcompany.com
Around 25 years ago, Ty Hookway, founder of the upstate New York-based janitorial services company CleanCraft, was driving past one of their client’s houses when he noticed one of his workers’ cars parked in front. It was late–around 11 p.m.–so Hookway stopped to check in and see if everything was okay. Inside, he saw Sanford Coley, a man he’d recently hired, vacuuming. It was hot, and Coley was wearing shorts, not the CleanCraft uniform pants, and when Hookway looked down he noticed a band around Coley’s ankle. “I didn’t know what it was, so I asked him, and he told me it was an ankle monitor.” Years earlier, Coley had robbed a bank.
“We did background checks–I don’t know how I missed it,” Hookway says. But Coley was a good worker and trustworthy; Hookway didn’t want to fire him. So he didn’t. Today, Coley is a manager at CleanCraft. “I’ve got around 50 stories like that,” Hookway says. Over the course of his time running his company, he’s found that giving jobs to people with barriers to employment like a criminal record, a practice often called fair hiring or second-chance hiring, has proven to be good for his business. That is Good News. Source: fastcompany.com - by Ellie Anzilotti #GoodNewsforGood#GoodNews#BeGood#SecondChance#Jobs#BeKind#OpenHiring
This is one great kid! He helped Basil thru her "scary" vet appointment this morning 🐶 Then on our way home we saw an elderly man trying to change a tire in 90+ degree weather. He didn't look like he was doing too good so Eli stopped and asked if he could help him and they changed it together. I have such kind and compassionate nieces and nephews! 😍 #proudauntie
While this planner won’t cure my existential crisis about going back to school, it sure helped me stay organized, focused, and in control of my life.
I’m having a really hard time about going back to work after having the summer off. My goal for the summer was to find the next path for my career outside of the classroom, still serving my community. This was much more difficult than I expected and really challenged me to question my goals. And not being successful in the job search really took a hit to my ego (but that’s probably a good thing 😉).
Now I’m preparing for the new school year trying to stay positive but feeling disappointed.
As always though, a new school year is about the new, eager students and how to meet their needs and get those mighty brains to grow. I’ll need to put aside my own self- doubts to ensure that I’m doing my best for my sweet new 5th graders.
Good luck with the new school year, teachers. Have the strength to stay positive and kind, even when it’s hard. 💜
Words cannot express how happy I am that I don’t have to go to work on fridays !!!!! Working 7 days a week for so long taught me how grateful I am for days off !!! After I started staying home, I began feeling guilty for not working outside of our home, knowing how much student loan debt was hanging over our heads, but the thought of leaving my kids to work for someone else 8 hours a day was literally gut wrenching.
That’s when found the opportunity with Isagenix. Jumping into to something that has such a stigma was HARD (to say the least!) We learned quickly the power of why we were so dedicated would out weigh the backlash of those who didn’t see what we did.
Fast forward to today....we’ve been able to make more working part time from our home than some do working full time for an entire year working for someone else. I love that if I never want to work a Friday again, I don’t have to !! We have the ability to work from anywhere at anytime for ourselves! Choosing to go against the norm for our little family keeps proving to be the BEST DECISION! *Income level achievements are dependent upon the individual's business skills, personal ambition, time, commitment, activity and demographic factors and should not be construed as typical or average.
Do it for YOU, not for your parents, your friends, your partner... do it because it serves you in every single way, because it gives you your purpose. It is so important to put your needs first when it comes to the process of building your dream life and dream career. Even if the people around you aren't happy with your career choice, the moment they see you glowing, happy and fufilled they will only want more of it for you, I promise. Make yourself proud because you ARE a SUPERFOX 🔥
Rise and shine my beautiful rays of Friday sunlight!! ☀️ For day 1, we’re starting off simple. If you’ve read my blog, you probably saw this one coming... #iaccept .
If you choose to play along, please tag me in your posts so I can see them!! I don’t have a fancy hashtag, maybe next time 😉 .
Note: think of at least 3 things you accept, and then keep going. You can add to your list or you can elaborate with literally any thoughts that are sparked by this process.
Enjoy, friends! I look forward to your posts!
Poți să te bucuri aici şi acum. Poți să priveşti lucrurile din jurul tău şi să îți laşi inima să zâmbească, să înflorească aici, în România. Poți să te opreşti o clipă şi să iți iubeşti țara, poți să te rogi pentru ea şi poți să o faci un loc binecuvântat exact unde eşti.
