Each of us has a special purpose. Dont compare yourself to others! 
Embrace your voice and share it with the world! 
Speak your mind truthfully and be real! 
Step out of the shadows and be a light for others!  #stepoutfromtheshadows #bealight #lightandlove #beavoice #bereal #purpose #embraceyourvoice
I've heard it said singing opens up your heart. Sometimes I read and see too much that simply makes me ache, because I feel so small and incapable and I don't know what to do with that smallness. Then I sit and sing something familiar, like an old hymn, where the words don't really seem to matter even, and I soften for a while and feel love sinking into my bones again and an expansion in my chest. Maybe I can't solve too many big things with that, but I find a source of love and remember who I am and move a little more gently throughout my day, noticing more and breathing slower. So, I'm writing this as a reminder for myself to sing more and love more without holding back, and sing with others in the same deep way I do on my own and then, to go on through my day with intention. #tattoosandhymns #lovemore #embraceyourvoice

Sunsets after storms are my favourite. They remind me that I have weathered one more storm and come out the other side. There is always some rebuilding and clean up afterwards but I'm a better me because of it. ...

Are you stuck on drafting a new email?

I feel you. 💪

Most of my work is done in email 📧 ⌨️ If you’re subject line garnered attention— Congrats! 
Have you thought how to keep customers further engaged? 👍You’ve done the research. 👍You know your avatar. 👍You know yourself. 
The hard work 😓 is done ✅ 
Blend the two. 
Engage in conversational dialogue that makes real life connections to your customers. 
BUT, most of all connect it to an authentic experience. 
If you’re worried the email is too wordy or “sales-y”, then read it out loud. 
Use your “friend” voice. Remember, brevity is your friend. 
I barely had enough attention to write this mini-blog. - Market on!

When I was about 6 years old, I experienced something that I could never forget. These two boys who were “older” than me that I used to play bikes with, who I thought were my friends, cornered me and grabbed, played, and showed their genitals in front of me. I was sitting in a bench in a small empty park, and they tried to peek through my green shorts. As a young girl, I was confused, pressured, and didn’t know what to do so I just sat there covered my face with my two hands and cried. I was so confused that I couldn’t even run, reported to my parents or anyone. Unfortunately, I’m one of the 81% of women who had experienced some form of sexual harassment during their lifetime. Another statistic shows that 80% of people who have experienced sexual harassment, never file a formal complaint about it. Yup, I’m one of them. But for the first time, I was able to tell someone yesterday. It somewhat relieved me, but still the scar is still there. I think it’s VERY IMPORTANT to raise this awareness and teach these kids since at their young age. You never know who, when, and how it would happen. Today I’m sharing my voice. #metoo #timesup #womensmarch

It's International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. 
Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world today remains largely unreported due to the impunity, silence, stigma and shame surrounding it. 
Violence against women continues to be an obstacle to achieving equality, development, peace as well as to the fulfillment of women and girls’ human rights.

Today also marks the start of the 16 Days of Activism. The time is now to make a change!

Shame....
That space between acceptance and hiding. Am I accepting myself in this moment or am I hiding behind the shame? The parts of me I wished didn’t exist, that I want to erase away.
〰️
Yoga for me is now about facing that shame, for uncovering the root cause. It’s accepting that it’s there. No hiding behind a pose that’s screams ‘look at me...look how strong I am’ yet the pain behind the pose is LOUD! The pain of pushing to be the perfect person, the pain of becoming the perfect pose. Causing injury and further shame.
〰️
I see practices today that focus on burying your shame, that encourage you to push through the poses and convince you that you are getting stronger. In reality you grow weaker & start to break. You disconnect from your true self. You forget to listen, you forget to hear the soft loving voice within that’s showing you the way.
〰️
There may be texts that are thousands of years old telling us it’s this way. Just because someone wrote it down it doesn’t mean that we cannot find our own yoga, our dance, our own connection to who we are. They may provide some ideas and tools, but only you have the key to unlock your truth, your power, your GLOWING LIGHT WITHIN!
〰️
Shame may be standing in your way right now. Step by step, moment by moment you can start accepting the shame as a cover up story and start to uncover the layers to the root cause. We carry shame from our past, our ancestors, & even past lives. We can start to let go of these stories and move forwards with love, compassion and kindness.
〰️
TRUTH - this image carried shame for me, until today when I saw the deeper meaning behind it.
〰️
📷 @chekaphotography thank you for capturing this beautiful imperfect..perfect moment

This post was inspired by my beautiful friend @miriammakesthings whose honesty & courage shines everyday

Day 4 of the #voiceandbodychallenge .

A song.

Here's the thing. When I came up with this theme earlier in the week, I had a nice, clever little idea of whispering some lyrics and crawling about and doing something fun. But this morning it sounded super lame. And I couldn't think of a clever way to do it. I was super regretting choosing this. I mean,  I DO NOT SING. So how was I meant to do this? I couldn't quit on my own challenge.

Then @glowwithpriya posted hers. And I realised how much I was still hiding, still searching for a cop out. 
So this is a multi layered offering, like the richest piece of baklava, in love and gratitude, to whatever spirit is hiding behind this challenge. Because truly, it's not just mine.

A layer for dearest Priya, who inspired me to step into boldness in a way I never believed I could.

A birthday layer for @mrsjowright , who will understand the song, and perhaps also the invitation to step into her own magic a little deeper, on this trip around the sun.

A layer for this student of mine, Gerry, who won't even see this as he doesn't use the internet, but once told me I had a song in me, as all people did, and I doubted him.

And... for you. Today, more so than ever, I invite you to join me. To create, to share, to sing.

With love and music in my heart to yours.

This is MY take on PERMISSION.

Because for too long, I've waited for assurance, for the nod that's it's ok, for permission from someone else that I'm worth being here.

Everything I do is a process of unlearning that. And of reclaiming my own body and voice and heart to give myself what I want and need.

Let’s begin our Monday with a prayer for domestic violence victims; that they may find hope and light in Jesus, are able to break their silence, and to ultimately be free from an abusive relationship. 💟

Yesterday and today, we participated in the Polk County #TeenMaze. We talked to hundreds of high school students about relationships; what makes them healthy versus unhealthy. When asked the question, "what makes a relationship healthy?", students identified that trust, setting boundaries, respect, and communication is important. 🙌👍 #healthyrelationships #embraceyourvoice #boundaries #preventionispossible #endteendatingviolence #endsexualassault
October Domestic Violence Awareness Month has ended. But now that we are in the first full week of November, let us use this prayer as a basis for the month and each one that follows. 💟

It's #SelfDefenseSunday, which means it's time to talk about #EmpowermentSelfDefense and the history, the research and theories, and the strong women behind it.⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today, we bring you this thought about the use of voice:⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"We’re all born with the ability to be loud (after all, screaming and crying are the first thing a baby does), but think about how quickly that skill is knocked out of us. How many times have you been told not to raise your voice?⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Luckily, using our voice is a skill that can be relearned. Some self-defense students have told us that they practice shouting “NO!” in front of the bathroom mirror.”⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Why, in your opinion, is voice such a a powerful self-defense tool? Do you practice using your voice? If so, how?⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’d love to hear your stories and tips!⠀

"Women don’t need to find a voice. They have a voice. They need to feel empowered to use it, and people need to be encouraged to listen.”⠀

Empowerment self-defense isn’t about meeting violence with violence. It’s about keeping others from crossing your boundaries. Your voice is one of the most effective ways to do that.⠀

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a symbol as “a visible sign of something invisible”. This portrait project began with a collective group of survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault who wear their symbols to signify that the abuse against them was real and their truth will not go unseen. ❤️ “No mud, no lotus.” -Thich Nhat Hanh

“I remember sitting there thinking, what just happened? This doesn’t happen: not in the military, not in the Marine Corps, not to me.” This quote is from Megan Brauer, a survivor of rape. Here is her story, https://www.rainn.org/survivor-stories/megan #SurvivorStory #StandUp #EmbraceYourVoice

ACDVO Director, Father Charles Dahm, was in the southside Chicago neighborhood of Beverly this past weekend preaching about domestic violence and the work of our ministry. He shares with us this photo and message: “This Sunday I preached at the famous St. Barnabas parish, a very active parish in the Beverly community with strong Irish roots. I found a very welcoming parish with a great community spirit, and received applause for every homily. They were hungry to hear about the Church’s position on domestic violence.”
