Delta Air Linea — Banning a “type of look” from their planes — and using the “slang term”  inaccurate label to target and ban innocent dogs —  just like the archaic, profiling and discriminatory law of breed-specific legislation (BLS ), which could not be more unspecific. Breed nor appearance equal behaviour. All dogs are individuals 😡

I'm secure enough that it shouldn't bother me but man it irks me when people make assumptions about me.

A man was here this evening to appraise the house.  He needed to take a picture of the living room so I left the couch to get out of his way... And after saying "please excuse my jammies" dude says "I wish a could just lay around all day in my pjs." How rude!

How does he know that I wasn't bustin my ass off all day at work, came home & got comfy? Or that I wasn't sick with the flu or something?  How does he know that I'm not chronically ill with chronic pain that, while still recovering from a week of physical & mental stress, exhausted all of my energy in the shower this morning, poured myself into clothes that hurt & burn my skin, dragged myself to one of my many regular grooling doctor appointments, dragged myself back home again, got back into my jammies & collapsed?

What dude said & the tone in which he said it sounded very condescending.  Like he was insinuating hat I was simply lazy.

Honestly, because of how much regular clothing irritates my skin, I'm in my jammies most of the time, no matter what kind of day I'm having.  But, regardless, my reasons for being in my jammies all day is NOBODY'S BUSINESS!

I know that I possibly could be reading too much into it but the fact remains that people with chronic illnesses have to deal with that kind of bullshit all the time... From family, friends & strangers!  And, because of that, although I try not to, I find myself wanting to explain all the time why I do things the way I do them or why I can't do things & so on.

We shouldn't have to defend ourselves... Especially in our own homes!

We are ever changing and ever evolving, and to pretend to be “the type of person who...” boxes us into tiny little labels that might have been us yesterday, but not today.
.
We grow, we adapt and we flow within the limitlessness that is us.
.
Drop the labels and embrace all the parts of you.

All dogs are individuals — but not in the media. The difference in reporting is like night and day! If a dog has a blocky head and short hair this story would of been page 1 with FEAR based headlines — using the “slang term” to label the said dog, even though visual identification is inaccurate even when performed by a dog specialist. Continuous profiling, discrimination & BSL directed at blocky head dogs must stop. Education is key. Any dog can bite, breed nor appearance equals behaviour.

What people don’t realize.. There are some of the most “monetarily successful”, noticed, talented, driven, caring individuals that are literally stuck living on the streets all over the world. 
Having these well paying jobs you would never expect homelessness to happen to. 
Accountants, CEO’s, Corporate Managers, Fire Fighters, Police Officers, Veterans Lawyers, etc. 
Your title or status will not keep you from homelessness, so please remember this before you judge another. 
Many individuals living on the streets were once very successful in one way shape or form. Then, life happened. 
Illness. Trauma. Losses. Deaths. Disasters. Heartbreak. 
Life can happen to any of us. 
What brings people back to life, success and an overall better place of peace in general?

LOVE. 
We all have that gift to give.

Drop the labels.

WHO ARE YOU REALLY?
Drop the labels. . WHO ARE YOU REALLY?
suspended in space
grounded to earth
heart over head

observing the edges shift with the expansion and contraction of the breath

i recall telling one of my gurus years back that i was too large to headstand. she was so upset. "why would you say that about yourself? that attitude is never going to help you fly"

of course she was right. heavy, doubtful thoughts bring us down. it matters not our physical size. it's about our energy. our intention and attention

eventually after about 7 years of struggling with this posture, always feeling too chunky to kick up into it, i suddenly found myself dangling like an earring from Buddhas earlobe. without any effort. without any thought

when we let go of the judgements and quieten the mind of the ego, then the body softens and opens

and then we can soar sky bound 🐦 
want to fly emotionally? then let the baggage go

hope to maybe see some of you later at the gorgeous new space that is @matspace_framlingham so we can play at softening and diving into being ♥ 🙏🏻 #yogaoffthemat #yogaoftheheart #yogaeverydamnday #yoga #yogagirl #divedeep #breathebelievereceive #movementismedicine #movementismagic #faceyourfears #heartoverhead #happinessprescription #momentstopause #lilavati #limanialoves #heart #medicine #meditate #yogabeyond #blessed #ocean #divein #divewithin #nature #returntowild #heartoverhead #gratitude #heartfull #dropthelabels #allthefeels #masteryourmeangirl

Found this beautiful image in the journal I use for 5/55 challenges and affirmations today and it was so fitting for my life right now.
💫
Lately I've been feeling like there has been something trying to come forward in me that I haven't yet been able to identify.
💫
So I've stayed quiet.
💫
Quiet on social media and quiet inside in a meditative sense.
💫
Don't get me wrong; there's plenty going on in my mind just like everyone else, but I've put a lot more effort into listening to my inner knowing than usual.
💫
While I haven't gotten THE answer yet, I have learned a lot. 💫
I have started applying this stillness and reflection to tapping into my physical body's wisdom - much needed for anyone in #EDrecovery or dealing with a chronic illness.
💫
After doing a lot of energy work the past few weeks, as my emotions came up so did my desire for food in excess of what I am used to - a combination of the impact of old memories and my body's need to replenish the energy it has lost through all that work. Honestly, it fucking scared me.
💫
But after a few days, things started to settle down and I started listening to my body for the first time in a long time. And it felt GOOD.
💫
My body and I have a lot of trust to restore with each other, but I'm proud of the progress we've made in the last 2 weeks or so. 💫
I have started pausing whenever I'm hungry to consider what my body is craving and what will satisfy my hunger before preparing meals - a far cry from the autopilot I had gotten used to with meal planning and convenience eating over the past year.
💫
The way I'm feeling gives me hope and the push I need to keep moving forward, not just with food but with everything.
💫
Whether you struggle with an #eatingdisorder, #depression, #anxiety or just #lifestuff, you have a lot of wisdom locked inside of you just waiting for you to pause, listen and learn. So take a deep breath, enjoy a moment of stillness and see what messages your higher self is trying to tell you today.

By Animal Farm Foundation; A very unexpected dog came through our doors many years ago - Santiago. He wasn't a K9 and he wasn't a service dog, but he was more than a pet. Santiago is a celebrity. 
He's an ambassador for shelter dogs and for showing that all dogs are individuals. Here he is in his latest ad, modeling for Marc Jacob's newly released smartwatch! (Image description: A woman with brightly colored hair sits on a curb laughing. She is wearing plaid pants, a yellow shirt, and a grey jacket. She is holding her hand up to her face to show off a watch. Sitting next to her is a white dog with dark colored patches on his fur, including a spot over his left eye.)

Ive been reminded of this several times lately and it’s so true. Labels can be hurtful and a lot of times, untrue. 
So let’s just leave labels for jars and containers shall we 😊🖤

Winter sun! 🌞I started a online Mindfullness Practitioner course this week and I’m finding it very inspiring. One thing that stuck a cord was how limiting labels are! Labels applied by others and labels we apply to ourselves. Once we are labelled we are not only restricted, but we set ourselves up to fail. My labels include ‘Artist’ and ‘Mother’ so I am constantly worrying that I’m not the best mother or artist. So now I am conscious of removing those labels from myself and others. I’m just me and I am only going to worry about being the best me, the most me, the only me there is 🙏 ❤️ (FYI - I got this jumper from the kids section of Kmart! 😆) #mindfullness #mindfullnessmoment #mindfullnesschallenge #dropthelabels #justbeyou #selfcare #selflove #msawareness #multiplesclerosis #makeithappen #kmartaustralia #sunshine #grateful #chronicillness
