The difference between joy and happiness is happiness grabs your attention, joy holds your heart💖
Sympathetic Joy is the act of experiencing joy in the good fortune of others
Witnessing others JOY is the foundation for for connection .
#Friday LOVE ... Despite our rational, thinking minds, love is our greatest motivator in life, working as a link that keeps everything together. Love is so powerful because it creates unity in our being, by #connecting the #emotional , #intellectual , and #spiritual aspects of ourselves. Love is not something we can take casually, because before we know it, it manages to infuse our lives in such a way that we are no longer able to accept a life without love. #Love is the supreme #motivation of our #soul and the #passion that can determine the greatest growth.
Reasons I LOVE Christmas cards... 1. It's good mail! In other words, it's not a bill.
2. It's the simplest of loving gestures .
3. They are a reminder from those near and far that your loved and thought of.
4. They're beautiful and full of positivity, joy, and well wishes.
5. They keep us connected (even if it's one time a year)
6. They're cheap in cost, abundant in love.
7. They're the perfect way to spread Christmas cheer and to keep the faith alive.
This particular card is from my favorite Uncle "Mush" as I call him.
💫 Oily Gatherings 💫
Your invitation to magical Oily Gatherings where soulful women connect within themselves, with sisters and with the support of Mother Nature’s essential oils.
Are you yet to experience the magic of doTERRA essential oils? Do you have a bunch of girlfriends who are into the same spirit-nourishing, earth-honouring stuff as you?
If you do, I’d love to share my Oily Circles with you and those you love during our gathering!
I’ll paint the picture:
🌸Your favourite people, sitting in circle. We’ll open the space with a meditation and some sacred sound.
🌸Our Oils workshop will focus on the subtle ways we can work with these oils so they can support our emotions, nervous systems and spiritual practices. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌸All the while, we’ll be munching on heart-opening treats, anointed with essential oils.
It would be such a blessing if we could hold space for each other to experience this🙌🏻
In honour of sisterhood, being-ness, harmony, mother earth and CHOCOLATE. Does it get any better? 😋
I cannot wait to share this space with you
I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ♡
Here’s another light-filled ¤ Gem ¤

I made this video nine years ago, and it is still the first thing I look at almost every day. If I have one prayer, it is this beautiful and timeless Prayer of Saint Francis. Also “Thank you.” And an occasional, “HELP!” “Here are the two best prayers I know: ‘Help me, help me, help me’ and ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you.” -Anne Lamott
There is a new update on our page on under1000skies, Missing Benjamin, a video made yesterday and shared on social media to help get the word out about Ben.
It is set to two songs we loved and all sang together a lot, “Wheel in the Sky” and “Lights” both by Journey. I used photos from his life, from age -3 months when I was pregnant with him in Kenosha, WI, to the last photo of him I took and the last place he was seen. It includes many photos he shared with me for under1000skies from his cross-country trip in 2015. Another song I play often when I think of him that helps is “Don’t Stop Believing.” I won’t. Please share his video with your social media if you like or friends. I appreciate every single person who has shared Ben’s poster, sent prayers and good thoughts, and kind notes of encouragement over the years. I’ll never be able to repay you, but I promise to continue to pay your kindness forward.

Përfundoi puna edhe për sistemin e ndriçimit në rrugën e Pyllit të Sodës. Ndriçimi përgjatë të gjithë rrugës është i tipit LED dhe shtyllat janë unifikuar me pjesën tjetër të Vlorës duke krijuar një lidhje qytetit me këtë hapësirë të re urbane dhe turistike.
Projekti për rikonstruksionin e rrugës së Pyllit të Sodës zbatohet nga Fondi Shqiptar i Zhvillimit në kuadër të programit “Punët në Komunitet IV- Zhvillimi i Alpeve Shqiptare dhe Zonës Bregdetare” që financohet nga qeveria shqiptare me mbështetjen e Bankës së Këshillit të Europës për Zhvillim (CEB).

Dear friends and fireballs, this post was inspired by meeting @ericakeswin at @flyfemalefounders event at @theassemblagenyc this morning. Connecting, assembling, collaborating, relating, socializing, networking. No matter which term you prefer, the concept is the same: life is all about people coming together, sharing ideas, supporting and helping one another, and creating communities. Yet statistics show that people are lonelier, more alone, and isolated than ever before. We want, and need, to find better ways to come together. Here are a few simple ways, along with my own examples. Get offline, get face to face, and use video calls instead of phone calls when in person isn’t possible. Get to know your coworkers, classmates, neighbors, and even strangers. Start with hello, then go beyond the basic superficial conversations. Invite your neighbor for a walk in the park: My neighbor and I turned a one minute elevator conversation about the weather into a one and a half hour hallway conversation about everything. We went for a walk in the park a few weeks later to continue talking. Volunteer for a cause you care about: I foster and train cats for various rescue groups. Serve organizations that build communities: I’m serving on committees at @labshul and @idealist_org . Join associations: I’m a member of @ellevate_ntwk @atdnational and @crewnetwork . Introduce friends with common interests: I plan many brunches, shows, dinners, and parties to bring the people in my network together. You don’t have to be a professional connector, or spend a lot of time and money building relationships. One phone call a week, one meeting a month, one brunch, one genuine offer, works wonders to improve your social life, soul life, career, and happiness. And this is why I do what I do. I call myself a ‘networking coach’ with the title of Chief Networking Officer. What I really do is empower people to connect better. I do this by helping my clients embrace their unique talents, present their best selves, and be more confident building professional relationships. I’d love to work with you and your networks. 🔥❤️🔥#relationships#people#community#networks#connection#empowerment
Bangladeshi and Pakistani women are missing out on work due to unsuitable provision and support from mainstream services - The new IPPR report by Phoebe Griffith and Abida Malik explores this. .
There is widespread acceptance that the social and economic disengagement of women from Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities remains a challenge, and the government has recognised the need to tackle disengagement as a key priority.
Yet recent years have not seen significant improvements, with some indicators suggesting that disengagement could be intensifying.
The community-based interventions profiled as part of this research demonstrate that these approaches can be highly effective, but they are struggling, and remain dependent on a shrinking pool of local authority grants.
Ensuring that community-based support remains viable will be critical to tackling disengagement among Pakistani and Bangladeshi women. This report sets out an initial road map for how to increase levels of cooperation between public sector agencies and community groups on the ground.
