Films for Change - Blue
BLUE is a film about how the oceans are broken, and what can be done to fix them. Half of all marine life has been lost in the last 40 years. By 2050, there will be more plastic in the sea than fish. Featuring passionate advocates for ocean preservation, the film tackles themes of habitat destruction, species loss and pollution. Filmed in the seas surrounding Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines and the USA, BLUE looks at how the very nature of the ocean is being altered.
Our ocean has been the guardian of life on earth. Now it is our turn to be guardians for the ocean.
Last film showing next Wednesday, 19th December 2018 at Juanita Nielsen Community Centre.
Nearly of 2018, time to make the change, some of the volunteers who are passionate about making a difference.
2019, New Year, New Beginning, Choices, Chances & Changes. Be Mindful & Passionate about "Making a Difference and Preserve Mother Earth 🌏 and, its Beauty"
Cabbage Leaf Roll 🍃
Simple, quick dishes can be a lot of fun to prepare and to eat! Shred some leafy greens, add some of your favorite veggies, toss in some rice noodles seasoned with soy sauce, place the mix on a Napa cabbage leaf and garnish. You've got yourself a healthy cabbage leaf roll!
You can stuff yourself on these and still feel like going for a run afterwards!
Das zubereiten nahrhafter Speisen muss nicht viel Zeit in Anspruch nehmen: Rohes Blatt- und Fruchtgemüse fein schneiden, ein paar Reisnudeln in Sojasauce schwenken, alles vermischen, auf Chinakohlblätter verteilen und garnieren. Fertig sind die Chinakohl-Wraps!
Man kann sich an diesen Wraps satt essen, ohne sich danach träge zu fühlen. Vielleicht macht man statt einem ausgedehnten Mittagsschläfchen einen längeren Lauf durch die Natur...
Exams. For many people (including me!), it’s exam season. Whether it is big or small it’s pretty scary to have to try and blurt out as much knowledge as you’ve managed to cram into your brain in two or three hours, especially when it’s for a class you don’t love. I have two exams next week and an essay due before I head home for Christmas and I’m really starting to feel the pressure. If you are too, know that it’s okay and you’re not the only one. It’s easy to feel like people know so much more than you and that you’re never going to pass but take a step back and. The very fact that you are so conscious of all the things you feel you don’t know is a sign that you’ve grasped the concept already, even if it is in the most basic way. That’s how I try and motivate myself to work and it helps me chip away at the long list without feeling so overwhelmed. But it’s a stressful time and my productivity has been fluctuating dramatically. I really am a true gemini - all or nothing! 😂 Just got to keep pushing through it...as always!
If you’re too overwhelmed to be productive, take a break to be present in the moment. Yes, exams are important, but they aren’t everything. A single exam will not determine your entire life - sure, it can throw a few curveballs in the way, but ultimately you will end up on whatever path you are meant to be on. I can go from failing an exam —> dying alone and all the steps in between in about all of 30 seconds, so if you’re anything it’s incredibly important to try and get out of that ‘tunnel vision’ and realise it’s all relative. Otherwise I just wouldn’t be able to function I’d be so terrified.
So, if you’re currently doing exams or have something important coming up, try not to worry and find ways to wind down. Keep working and your work will pay off, but remember to always prioritise your health and well-being ❤️
The JBBBSLA staff had a fantastic time at our annual holiday party! This year, we visited @gourmandisela for a pasta making class! From learning how to make fresh ricotta, to rolling out our own pasta dough, we all enjoyed spending time together. Happy holidays!
Mas comece devagar, porque a direção
é mais importante que a velocidade.
Mude de caminho, ande por outras ruas,
observando os lugares por onde você passa.
Veja o mundo de outras perspectivas.
Descubra novos horizontes.
Não faça do hábito um estilo de vida.
Ame a novidade.
Tente o novo todo dia.
O novo lado, o novo método, o novo sabor,
o novo jeito, o novo prazer, o novo amor.
Busque novos amigos, tente novos amores.
Faça novas relações.
Experimente a gostosura da surpresa.
Troque esse monte de medo por um pouco de vida.
Ame muito, cada vez mais, e de modos diferentes.
Troque de bolsa, de carteira, de malas, de atitude.
Dê uma chance ao inesperado.
Abrace a gostosura da Surpresa.
Sonhe só o sonho certo e realize-o todo dia.
Lembre-se de que a Vida é uma só,
e decida-se por arrumar um outro emprego,
uma nova ocupação, um trabalho mais prazeroso,
mais digno, mais humano.
Abra seu coração de dentro para fora.
Se você não encontrar razões para ser livre, invente-as.
Exagere na criatividade.
E aproveite para fazer uma viagem longa,
se possível sem destino.
Experimente coisas diferentes, troque novamente.
Mude, de novo.
Experimente outra vez.
Você conhecerá coisas melhores e coisas piores,
mas não é isso o que importa.
O mais importante é a mudança,
o movimento, a energia, o entusiasmo.
Só o que está morto não muda!

Day 3 of massive action. What meaning do you associate with an action? Pain or pleasure? Maybe losing weight and the end result brings pleasure but if your association is pain due to previous failures then you are unlikely to start or to follow through. Do you eat for comfort or when you’re lonely? That is a neuro association hardwired into you therefore you have to change your conditioned responses to your environment. How do you that? Part 2 coming tomorrow! #massiveaction#personalgrowth#lifecoach#change#personaldevelopment#authentic#genuineliving
Pitch tip #1
Tell them the right story! .
In a short pitch, you can grab attention with a quick story about a client experience, a breakthrough or the light-bulb moment when you came up with the idea for the company.
Brevity is key. You’re excited about your business and want to prove that you have, indeed, researched all the possibilities. But the idea of a pitch, in any format, is to start discussion and engender continued interest.
Your pitch should whet the appetite, not leave your audience full.
Hardship leads to growth.
Growth leads to change.
In order to have things you’ve never had you have to change.
You don’t get better by chance, but by change.
Don’t choose the easy road,
Choose the difficult one.
“There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” ~ Leonard Cohen
Just a Thursday afternoon reminder that you only need a tiny spark of belief in your ability to rise up and you’ll be growing again 💪🏻🌱🌞
#Relationships are hard af for me. It’s so much easier for me to turn and run. Start over. Coming from a broken home and not having a dad I have no real version of what a healthy normal relationship is supposed to look like. I have the abusive, alcoholic, abandoned version and then the fake movie version which is all rainbows and butterflies. Neither of which are right. I know there is no cookie cutter way to be with someone or that “true love” looks the same for everyone but navigating through life without an example makes it a lot tougher. I’m really good at pushing men away especially ones who get too close. It’s my old paradigm of protecting myself. I like to have a wall built so no one can get in so no one can hurt me. Well that’s changing!! I’ve never been so conscious of my actions,why I do what I do but #mindfulness has opened up a whole new world for me and I can now identify and #change 💕 i am conscious of how I act and try immediately to stop after I’ve acted in my old ways. take a breath; identify, apologize if I need to, FORGIVE MYSELF and move on. No sense in beating myself up, I’m only human. I give this man so much credit for staying by my side as I grow, change and try to do the right thing ( I’m not the easiest person 😂) I’m 100% my Scorpio self and that comes with a lot of intense emotion. I’ve tried to push him away a lot, more than I’d like to admit but he sees me for who I truly am and that’s all I’ve ever wanted in a partner. Neither of us are perfect and we both make mistakes daily but at the end of the day if we are both willing to put in the work to take steps in the right direction #TOGETHER , who are we to judge? Love you #babe , thanks for being #you 👫🥑♥️
