This is how #California welcomes this jerk ✊🏽 No love for this victim-abuser who continues to ignorantly blame our #beautiful State for the unfortunate wildfires we have experienced recently. Does he also blame Florida for their hurricanes? Let’s get the #facts : wildfires are a natural part of the California ecosystem, as they are of any heavily-forested, heavily-green, heavily-wooded area. From way before we ever set up homes on the lush rolling hills of this fertile land, wildfires existed, serving to clear dead brush and trees and helping to revitalize our soil to make way for new plant growth. The problem, of course, is that #CLIMATECHANGE -which this creep refuses to acknowledge, continues to reject, and has only made WORSE with his bad policy towards the #environment - has accelerated the rate and scope at which these natural fires occur by exacerbating factors such as temperature increases (#globalwarming ), longer summers, and drier winters that contribute to them. This irresponsible fool Trump pulled the country out of the #Paris Agreement, the most important human effort being made to reduce our collective contribution to climate change, despite the mountain of evidence for the need to act NOW if we want to survive another century. California has remained in this accord because California recognizes science, but this isn’t a California problem, it’s humanity’s problem, and it is imperative for us ALL to act; Trump is holding our nation and the world back from fighting for our own human survival by continuing to reject reality. Now Trump wants to come to OUR State and pretend like he’s here to say anything worth hearing? Here’s something worth hearing: the country rejected Donald Trump and his anti-planet, anti-humanity stance, and California especially rejected him loudest. We don’t need Trump wasting our time touring our State, checking-in on his golf course in Palos Verdes; we need the federal government taking action for the environment and for Trump to STOP spreading lies and abusing our State and wildfire victims ✊🏽 (📸: @laurenraelevy) #bluewave#voteblue#girlpower#californialove#woolseyfire#curatedbyLANTC
As the sun sets on my month in Mauritius, I find myself so thankful to the people who made my experience so wonderful. 💕 I’m also thankful to have rediscovered the version of myself that I love the most; that Sabreen has been hiding in my home office for the past 11 months, but she’s about to make some exciting announcements!
Missing the Cali sunshine and clear blue skies ☀️ / But really, over 100k Californians are suffering directly from the impact of these fires, the damage is colossal and there can never be enough help so if you would like to donate, the link is in my bio! Thank you ♥️ 📸: @lastnameblinks
This wonderful smile belongs to my amazing friend @lookoutitssara 💁🏽♀️ She may or may not know it, but she inspires me SO much! She is the kindest, silliest, most unapologetically nerdy person I have come to know and adore. I’m telling you, this woman is truly beautiful inside and out ✨🌈 ✨ •
Don’t forget to tell your goofy guy and gal pals how much you love them! 😘

I can't wait for my Master's graduation in May when I'll add the next piece of my Kalinga Tattoo. This tattoo ⚪⚫ is a marker of significant moments in my life as well as my family history weaved in. Traditionally, Kalinga tattoos took long and multiple sessions and served as rites of passage, beautifying marks, and spiritual armor.
Photograph of a Tamil coolie woman (indentured labourer) in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) circa 1890's.
In the 19th Century, many displaced tribals, lower caste communities and minorities of Tamil Nadu migrated (sometimes unwillingly due to British influence) to work in booming tea and coffee plantations of imperialist merchant companies. They were subjected to long working hours, minimal wages and terrible living conditions.
I started training in June 2018. May not seem like much of a contrast but its taken some effort I assure you! There was nothing wrong with me before it was mostly my mental health, I was depressed and lacked a sense of purpose. I was living in New Zealand and I had experienced some challenging and isolating things that made me return to the UK. I laid low and found the gym and its took me out of my hole and into a place of improvement. It's still a process :) I am thankful to the staff @the_gym_nottingham_city I don't think they realise what they did and still do for me, they have inspired me to become a trainer. So Thank You 💛✨

Good Morning Royal Bag Attractors and Goal Diggers!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s Saturday! Perfect day to take time out for yourself after a long week. The greatest investment you’ll ever make is in yourself. Knowledge is something no one can take away from you. Ever. And as always I’m going to stress looking to those who’ve already executed the goals you wish to conquer not only is it smart but it’s inspirational. Another goodie I didn’t list is The Wealth Cure by Hill Harper, check it out! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tune in to my stories for a pick-me-up or a laugh. You never know what you’ll find there 🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have a great day on purpose you all!
You don’t have to arrive at any destination in order to feel the way you desire to feel. ✨
Happiness is simply choosing to experience that each and every day.
It’s a myth that once you have achieved a certain level of success or have a certain amount of money that you will feel a certain way.
I have been there. I am here to tell you that you can have everything you thought you ever wanted and you can still be unfulfilled AF.
Are you wanting to experience more HAPPY right now where you are in your life?
I can help.
I created a program to help you go from stuck to Happy as fuck. 90 days. You + me.
Guided meditations 🧘🏽♀️ _
Healing your mindset
Creating your vision
Pure fucking magic 😎

practicing writing my full name, Maria-Lina, in baybayin.
i realized my shortened name that everyone knows me as, doesn't work in baybayin, but my birth name does.
pronounced MA • D/RI • YA • LI • NA
yes, leave it to #filipinoculture to give their child four names.
baybayin is the ancient, but now revived (and studied) script of the indigenous peoples of the Philippines. Commonly used in visayan languages.
"On April 23, 2018, the House committee on basic education and culture approved a bill to make Baybayin the national writing system of the Philippines."
