I want to talk about our rights as transgender, as HUMANS. You might have heard of the “incident” in a US school. Maddie, a 12 transgender girl, used the girls restrooms in her school and parents of children started threatening her, in a way you couldn’t even imagine. And I am deeply saddened by that. I am not going to share what they said because I do believe it has not its place here. I don’t tolerate hate and violence.
Peeing. Every being does it. Society separated “girls” from “boys” to do so. As transgenders, going to the restrooms is.. well it’s hell. It brings anxiety, stress..and most importantly, it brings Fear. Can you even imagine? Being afraid to go pee. Well thousands of kids have this fear. Fear that is fed by hate, threat, from people. Where the hell is love, and respect? WE WANT TO PEE! Why can’t they let us.
I’ve seen it happen a lot of times. I myself am scared when it comes to using bathrooms. But enough is enough. Today, I’m visible. I stand for what is right. We have to end fear, and violence. It ends people, it brings them down, and I guess some people clearly don’t understand what it can lead to. I’m going to fight for this to stop, for kids to use the bathroom they prefer in schools, and for Maddie and all of us to actually some day, open that bathroom door, fearless. 🌈

I was done talking, but I still couldn't sleep
I rolled out my medicine, to forget me
I tried not to disappoint you, but I didn't achieve
Cause I have a problem, and I need to get some
I shouldn't waste my time
Having you around
What was up's gone down
You take your road, and I'll take mine
So help me, why can't this be love?
Tell me, why can't this be enough?
When is high ever high enough?
It's all I've ever hoped for... #helpme#medicine#biffyclyro#enough#fire
Thank you to the following accounts for your eloquence, for your bravery, and for inspiring others to be the best Catholic they can be. To pray HARD. To love in action. To stand firm in faith. And to remember that we are all brothers and sisters- we are a community of faith and we will not stand silent among this evil. #NOMORE#ENOUGH#prayforus
@blessedisshe__ for connecting me to so many wonderful accounts.
I am grateful for you all and many more. Thank you for making me feel less alone. You are one main reason I love social media. [photo is from: @brickhouseinthecity]
Have ever wondered what enough is? What would be ‘enough’ in each area of your life?
Do you know when to put your 🍴 fork down or when to stop 🛑 doing something that really engages you?
Because we are not in presence with ourselves quite often our idea of enough keeps getting ahead of us. So may be one 🍭 candy 🍬 or 1 🍪 cookie might be enough, but many times 1 is only a prelude to the 1 that is going to follow. Enough is hard to be felt when you’re trying to fill something (emotional, trauma, grief) that can’t be filled ever by something physical.
You have more than most people on the world have, but it’s not enough.
Enough can not be something out there - anorexic will feel too fat, extremely wealthy will feel that he needs more money. Enough has nothing to do with reality. Enough is a relationship to what you already have in your life.
Concentrate and be thankful for what you do have instead of what you don’t have. And each one of us needs to find that out for ourselves.
Being grateful to have a body, legs, arms that function, house, food, clothes, and everything else that is around you and is taken for granted. Appreciate what you have take in the good. So if to translate that principle to the plate- take the food in your mouth, and taste it, really indulge in it and feel it.
Think about 3 things what’s not wrong in your life right now. Notice how it makes you feel to focus on what us not wrong. We are getting upset only with the bad things that happened to us and never celebrating all the good that we have plenty of! You have to focus on that everyday! You have a privilege to live and enjoy the world that is around you!!!
Unless you are appreciating what here in your life right now (health, family, friends, exercise, nature, hobbies) you will live till the end of life feeling like you didn’t even live.
My Sisterhood Story 🌸🌼🌹
There was this one really memorable Sisterhood for me... It was the 1st time I’d ever heard of a band called ‘The Mrs’ and an awesome song called ‘Enough’. And the message was on how we are Enough and we have Enough because we are found in God. And it kinda became a favourite thought and a favourite song and a favourite event in my memory. #enough#Godismorethanenough#sisters @hillsongsafrica @hillsongpta @hillsongcenturion #coloursisterhood#mysisterhoodstory ❤️💛💙
🎈SISTERHOOD 25 AUG - lemme know if u’d like details 😉
Not everyone can see what you see.
It’s okay. They're not you, don't take it so personally. It's all about the vision and the perspective.
Your own. Own yours. Don't like what you're seeing? Adjust your focus, drop the filters and try again.
Just as you can’t talk butterfly language with caterpillar people because one has transformed and the other has not, you can’t possibly expect a turtle to see the world the way giraffe does and vice versa. Doesn’t make either wrong, just different view points.
It’s tough to want radical change and results when you don’t know the next right move so you’re copying what others are doing and or are frozen in fear thinking this is as good as it gets? Sound familiar?? But maybe who your comparing yourself against is a giraffe and your a turtle? I invite you to really check in on yourself and ask yourself what do you REALLY want? Check your truth. Set some goals and commit to your future because you can manifest into it anything your heart desires, but you gotta ask first. So get clear!!! _
Yesterday @tonyrobbins asked “what business are you in?” No I mean what business are you REALLY in? And what business do you NEED to be in? See we think it’s one thing, but when you drill down it’s another. I “thought” I was an Entrepreneur, but really I’m an artist. A creator. Entrepreneurial spirit yes but my heart and passion is about helping people, creating. Giraffe and Turtle worlds apart. Oh boy! So what business are you REALLY in? Business and life changes because it takes a lot of energy to make them both work successfully and energy can sometimes get worn out, so when you have a vision, a reason and passion about who you’re serving more than yourself you’re pulled forward instead of pushing.
I’d love to know if anything changed for you after reading this caption.
