2018 definitely wasn’t my year! I had to make one of the hardest choices of my life for the sake of what’s best for my boys! Although I did meet some pretty awesome people, I definitely can’t wait to start 2019 fresh. I know that 2019 won’t be extremely easy for me either. I am bound and determined to do what’s best for my little men and I! No one else opinions will matter. The only good thing that happened to me in 2018 was meeting the littlest love of my life! Here is to a fresh stat and new beginnings!
Imagine being a wife at 15 to someone who ought to be your Grandpa,Imagine his old frail fingers running through your youthful still developing body,Imagine Living this Life till as long as possible,Imagine having a baby still as a child,Imagine being deprived of your childhood due to some silly custom that were made years before you were born,I could go on with the imagines,but the thoughts are horrible itself.PLS END CHILD MARRIAGE!
END CHILD MOLESTATION
PROTECT WOMEN'S RIGHT

My heart is with @CSUN_edu. I am thankful that they have canceled on campus finals. However, the threats made are horrific and terrifying and will affect the CSUN community for a long time. School shootings have become a genuine fear for students. No one should ever be afraid to go to school. #CSUN
According to the @BBCnews, 2018 is the “worst year for US school shootings” and "this year, 113 people have been killed or injured in school shootings in the United States. @EveryTown For Gun Safety is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities.

This actually made me sad... found out this morning there’s been an explosion at a wedding in afganistan .. is this ever going to end .. even the angel of death must be tired to keep a count of how many souls he’s gotta take
~ 💋BE PROUD, KNOW YOUR SELF WORTH AND THAT YOUR ENOUGH THEN GIVE IT GO ✌🏻~ NOW these words ring loudly to me. And I see this in what I do daily. You don’t ever feel 100% ready to leap.. & that’s natural and the honest truth. Actually if you only feel 1% ready that has more significance than the 99% of hesitation, fear & resistance.
Because that 1% represents your GROWTH, your highest self, your dreams, strengths & power. It takes commitment & practice to listen to that little voice (aka your instinct) telling you it’s time.. you’re ready ... let’s fucking do this ... & to ignore & invalidate your big loud voice telling you to stay in your little safe bubble & it’s best to not disrupt what’s already ‘working’.
But it’s NOT working 🤦🏼♀️ The holidays are here and the idea of the holidays ending, eating to much, spending to much and returning to a job that no longer inspires you is daunting.
It was great but not anymore & that’s why you have that itch to invest, to leap, to commit, to decide & take action. That was me.
I had a million & one questions and reasons to say no to investing in myself 3 years ago and even right up to last month; all because of fear. But I did it anyway! I was so time poor something just had to change. I stopped taking care of me, I stopped dreaming and the light and passion was gone.
This isn’t about actual dollar amounts it’s about my courage that has resurfaced. While I had millions of reasons to say no to leveling up... I had one HUGE reason to say yes.
And that reason was about me looking back on my life & envisioning myself living a mediocre life full of regret; wishing I had done things differently.. wishing that I didn’t settle, wishing I listened to my instinct. Wishing I got to be present not only in my kids lives but in mine. I was literally overseeing my life pass and that was no longer good enough.
I started envisioning living my life the way I wanted to, creating my future, creating a legacy, returning my hubby, traveling the world, changing peoples lives, being of service to others, growing leaders, feeling happy & proud, financially abundant... & I decided THAT is the life I want.
Fair warning. I have to put up with that shit on Facebook and I sure as hell won't put up with it on here. If you can't act like a decent person and keep personal pics to yourself then, you have no business messaging me, let alone follow me.

A man in the Cape Cod area had to use a gun to shoot a dog that was attacking him inside his bedroom, and the police promptly confiscated all of his firearms. He wasn’t charged with any crime. By all accounts, the cops thought this was a justified shooting, and yet they still took his guns.The Boston Globe reports that last week a 25-year old man and his girlfriend were relaxing on the bed in their West Yarmouth home when a pit bull they were fostering snapped. The dog attacked the couple. When the man tried to push it away, it clamped down on his arm. The dog refused to release the man, so he reached for a 9mm handgun he kept in the nightstand. The man fired at the pit bull, and it ran off, dying shortly after.
The man was taken to the hospital with severe injuries to his left arm. Here’s what the responding police had to say: “The single shot stopped the attack and the dog died shortly afterwards. The man is fully licensed to have firearms in Massachusetts,” said Yarmouth police in a statement.
Police took the man’s handgun, a 12-gauge shotgun, and ammunition found in the home “for safekeeping.” Why is “safekeeping” in quotes? That usually indicates sarcasm or that something isn’t entirely true. Is “safekeeping” code for “illegal confiscation” of legally owned firearms?
Maybe it doesn’t matter because the fact remains the police took this guy’s legally owned guns after he defended himself and his girlfriend from a vicious dog attack in their own home. How does this make any sense?

It is almost midnight, thank you for coming along for the ride of this Instagram takeover by me (Spencer: a parishioner here at St.Johns). I would like to thank the administration and clergy at St. Johns for being so supportive and allowing me to contribute in this small way. I am very blessed. Now, let us take these final moments to stand silent vigil, wherever you are, and meditate and pray in honor of those who have lost their lives due to gun violence, and for the families, friends, and people touched by their loss. May we as children of god, and a nation, in the future seek greater change towards bringing further peace to creation. 🕯🕊

If I post my breakfast choice I get numerous messages about trying this and that and whatnot.. actually I have what I have for breakfast because I actually like it, I don’t want to try your products or make extra income by using your products and selling them to 5 people! I just want free choice with my breakfast! Come on! It’s just breakfast why make it into an opportunity? #breakfast#rant#nokaren#karen#dontsellmestuff#itsmychoice#fml#pryamidscheme#nosales#enoughisenough
Please sign this petition to bring it to the attention of @fromyg ! (Link in bio)
.... Please read it @fromyg:
We, BLINKS, are disappointed at YG Entertainments unfair treatment and indifferent attitude toward BLACKPINK and BLINKS wishes. We, BLINKS all over the world, make it clear that we are even considering a boycott if there is no feedback on the requests and detailed mention of plan for BLACKPINK. We will not tolerate this anymore, when will you realize this cannot go on forever?
Here are only some of our wishes
1. A full album alongside atleast 2 comebacks every year to make gaps between comebacks as short as possible.
2. Have BLACKPINK attend more award shows.
3. Give them a better stylist
4. Freedom to write and/or compose their own songs
5. Proper promotions of albums and solos in Korea
We sincerely wish you do not overlook our wishes and desires like all the other times. Please set concrete plans for BLACKPINK.
I have a sister that is about 50kgs after a Sunday roast and the thought of her competing against men in a contact sport makes me sick, Hannah if you want to play sport play against men and you can still use the women’s change room and if ya just desperate for attention then apply for married at first sight. This should really cause a few good arguments #arguing#transgender#transgenderwoman#afl#hannah#enoughisenough

Sighs I heard how disgusting some of those HRA guards are. How hard is it to find a chair for a woman sitting on the FLOOR with an INFANT?!! Common decency however they chose to be aggressive and hostile.
For those who think she should have handed over the baby FOH for what?! I don’t trust them with adults let alone innocent children!
Take a look at the possessed wretch on the far right.... all of that force for what?!! So damn shameful and disgusting!
Shame on all of the demons involved smh
P.S. They also took her to rikers smh she was just released
Thank You for fighting for justice and shedding light to this story @shaunking
I’ve had enough of the takers.
I have so much love to give. 💗
Send me someone who enjoys giving as much as I do. Who is so awakened that he moves into his triggers instead of runs away. A warrior of a man who is steady, strong & will not leave me when I’m in my fire. 🔥
A man who I can depend on just as he can always depend upon me. 🙏
Let us teach one another, show one another how deep we both can really go without any fear.
I’m ready, Dear Universe. My heart is open wide for any & all of your glorious possibilities. 💫
I’m tired of being hurt.
I’m tired of being deceived.
I’m tired of being abandoned.
I’m ready for Love.
The real kind.
The unconditional, giving kind.
Thank you for hearing my cries.
Thank you for loving me enough to never give up on me.
I know he is on his way to me now.
And so it is. 🙏 Aho
A Piece of My Story. 2 years, ago I was raped by someone close to me. Who - even though I saw the unhealthy signs in our friendship - I never thought would cross the line. And when he did, I felt shame. I remember coming home afterwards in tears and barely able to contain the vomiting as I ran for the bathroom. I remember my sister and her husband holding me, begging me to call the police and report it...and I wouldn't. I remember thinking, " I shouldn't have worn that perfume or that shirt." "I shouldn't have smiled at him." "I shouldn't have let him kiss me." "I shouldn't have let my guard down."...but I did. And so in that moment I was PARALYZED by fear, and though my "no" was CLEAR - he wanted what he wanted, and what I wanted didn't matter. So I eventually stopped fighting and just waited for it to be over. And when it finally was I felt dirty and I felt used. I felt like damaged goods - broken and unlovable. I believed I was the problem. I told myself that, "it doesn't matter that you said no AT LEAST 20 times, it doesn't matter that you asked for him to stop at least 10 times, it doesn't matter that you cried and even begged to go home, because in the end you were silent. In the end you let this happen." I was so hard on myself because I didn't want to be a victim. I didn't want to have to say I was raped. I didn't want to deal with the stupid questions people might ask and have asked.... Why does it matter what I wore, what I allowed, or what I did. I said, "No." And last time I checked the word "no" means "no", "stop", "don't go any further", "you will not get the result you're wanting", "sorry buddy, the yes shop is CLOSED", "I do not consent." And yet, I was still raped. I WAS raped, and I never wanted it or asked for it....no one does. But plenty of victims are made to feel like it's their fault, and that shouldn't be. So to all my fellow victims, I just want to say -it's not your fault. You did enough, you fought enough, you are ENOUGH. You are still beautiful, you are not damaged goods, and you will be whole again! I love you and I'm here, and I hope one day you'll be brave enough to tell your story too. #enoughisenough#Nomeansno#metoo
Book Discussion/Focus Group in Springfield, Missouri
We are putting together a BOOK DISCUSSION/FOCUS GROUP of 12- 15 people that will read, reflect, and discuss the upcoming book, Free to BE. Free to BE is a spiritual, self-help guide (205 pages) geared towards the truth-seeking skeptic who is NON-religious/faith-based.
We are looking for participants who prefer to think logically, are healthfully open-minded, love to discuss in-depth, meaningful topics, and that respectfully speak their mind.
The group will meet once a week for 2 hours a day on Sunday mornings at a TBA location in Springfield, Missouri for around eight weeks. All participants must be available to attend group meetings regularly. The atmosphere will be a relaxed and comfortable setting with food and drinks provided.
There will be no monetary compensation for participating. However, we believe it has the potential to be an enriching experience in significant ways.
For those interested, please message Renee@ firstname.lastname@example.org and request an application. We will then send one back via email. Those selected will receive a free manuscript copy of Free to BE and may opt out at any time before the sessions begin.
All those that complete the book discussion/focus group will be acknowledged (at participants discretion) in the final copy of the book.
Thank you for your time, and please feel free to post any questions you may have.
