A lot of us can say "Sure sure, I guess" 💁
Although when we have a nonchalant attitude towards our goals & dream's... We are presented with cul-de-sacs. There's no treasure only a curve to turn around and go back to where you were trying to get away from. If you give up because you fell and scraped your knee's you won't gain any experience. A warrior or soldier does not live without a scar or story of there strength and bravery. They kept going even when they were tangled up in barbed wire or accidentally ran into a large spiked 🌵. They kept going because they wanted the treasure they deserved. Are you going to keep going after what you deserve? How wide are your wing's? If your broomstick broke in two, would you stare at it and say " well looks like this witch isn't flying today"? 👀
Everything I do is out of #love 💯
When your love is unconditional, many will not understand its #sincerity . Don't fall to thier #levels for it will cause U to descend within yourself. #staytruetoyourself 🙏💜
If you know me, you know I try my best to always keep it real and if you know me, you know I’m not always the most timely (but I try my best!).
Here’s my FIVE 🖐 on Friday.
A day late, but very real:
6️⃣ and I cant get up!
Not sure how this all came about but my tailbone is bruised (so it feels) and it hurts to sit (obviously) so here I am Friday mornin’, in my PJs, in this awkward shape snapping a photo to my friends as they asked me how my Friday was going.
That’s another thing: when you text me, will likely respond with a 📸 or an emoji🦄 And...I have really amazin’ friends!
But wondering, has anyone else ever experienced his pain in the ASANA⁉️
For real— it is! Physically and the fact I want to MOVE!
I get so much musical inspiration from nature. The sun is golden, the sky is blue and apple season is dawning. Take a step back in time with me to an era when we had thousands of different kinds of apples, each with a unique genetic code! Unfortunately, around 6000 of the 7000+ apple species are now extinct and it is occurring with many vital crops. I’m so amazed by @croptrust an international organisation working globally to preserve seeds of vital species in a vault to ensure crop diversity for food security worldwide.
The Vatican has recognised the term “LGBT” by using it in one of its official documents for the first time.
A paper examining the Catholic Church’s relationship with young people, published on Tuesday, said “some LGBT youth” were looking to “benefit from greater closeness and experience greater care by the church.” The use of the term appears to mark a significant change in the Vatican’s attitude towards gay Catholics, which it has previously described as people with “homosexual inclinations” and “homosexuals.” Grancis DeBernardo, executive director of the New Ways Ministry, which advocates equality for LGBT Catholics, welcomed the move, but said it did little to solve inequalities within the church. “This change in language signals that church officials are beginning to understand that they have to treat LGBT people with simple respect by referring to them with more accurate terms,” he said in a statement. “While these developments are welcome changes in the church’s style of discourse, it must be noted that there is nothing in the new document which indicates that the Vatican is, as yet, willing to entertain changes in church policy on LGBT issues. “The furthest they have gone is to indicate a willingness to work towards being ‘a community open and welcoming towards all’. “This pastoral approach is important, but the church’s outreach cannot end there.” The document, known as an instrumentum laboris, was released ahead of the General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, due to take place in October to discuss young people.
The report acknowledged the church’s traditional teachings on issues such as homosexuality, were “unpopular” among younger generations.
It also conceded the question of sexuality within the Catholic world needed to be discussed “more openly and without prejudice.” “The Synod’s primary aim is to make the whole church aware of her important and not at all optional task of accompanying every young person, without exclusion, towards the joy of love,” Cardinal Lorenzo Baldisseri said at a press conference to introduce the document on Tuesday.
Mein Tag in zwei Bildern... von nix kommt ja nix. Also der Bauch und so. Und Erdbeeren und Eis geht halt immer, vor allem mit Crêpes 😍 •
Und nun ist Daumendrücken angesagt ! #deutschland#schweden#wm2018
"👁 see you.
No, not you. But yo soul!"
It's beautiful to have and share a platform that can be used for whatever you want it to be, but if you find yourself becoming too engulfed in the present of others, always attached to the next trending thing or post, then Beloved, remind yourself to snap out of it!
What's going on with YOUR present?
Sometimes, we can use this joint as an escape, to marvel, to be encouraged by our favorite pages, to just be nosy AF 👀 lol
(and trust I know who is being nosy lol but I never share anything that I wouldn't mind being seen, so it's all free light here. I keep majority of my truly precious things + moments private unless spirit tells me to use them for healing.)
to flaunt, to help heal, to share our gifts & light, to build our brand, to get more business, and whatever other reason we use social media. All that is fine- no judgment- but the point is, we must be careful not to spiral out of our OWN reality...our own self-work.
Stay true to yo'self, always!
There's more to it- to YOU- just waiting to be discovered.
Panama Papers firm did not know who 75% of its clients were. Mossack Fonseca made frantic efforts to discover its own clients’ identities as it fell under global scrutiny.
A new leak of documents from the offshore service provider at the centre of the Panama Papers scandal reveals the company could not identify the owners of up to three quarters of companies it administered.
Two months after becoming aware of the data breach, Mossack Fonseca was unable to identify the beneficial owners of more than 70% of 28,500 active companies in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) as well as 75% of companies in Panama, according to new documents seen by BBC Panorama.
At the time, BVI law permitted corporate service providers to rely upon intermediaries, banks, legal firms and other offshore service providers overseas to check the identities of the owners, although they were required to provide information if requested by the authorities.
The firm was fined $440,000 (£333,000) by the BVI Financial Services Commission in November 2016 for regulatory and legal infringements of anti-money laundering and other laws.
The new leak contains 1.2 million documents dating from before the Panama Papers went public in April 2016 to December 2017. The data was obtained by Suddeutsche Zeitung which shared it with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). Email correspondence from clients and intermediaries reveal the reaction to the leak, Mossack Fonseca's desperate attempts to close gaps in their record keeping, and their difficulties doing so. Responding to questions from the firm, one Swiss wealth manager said: "THE CLIENT HAS DISAPPEARED! I CANT FIND HIM ANYMORE!!!!!!" The Panama Papers investigation went public in April 2016 when the BBC and more than 100 other media organisations started publishing stories emanating from 11.5 million documents leaked from Mossack Fonseca.
The investigation was organised by the ICIJ and involved journalists from 76 countries scrutinising internal emails and corporate documents passed to the ICIJ by Suddeutsche Zeitung.

Get impregnated by World Cup stars and win free Whoppers, says Burger King
The burger chain announced a promotion on VK, the Russian equivalent of Facebook, offering women 3 million Russian roubles ($47,000) and a lifetime supply of Whoppers if they get impregnated by football players competing in the World Cup.
Shortly after announcing the campaign they pulled it due to backlash. Burger King apologized for a poor-taste ad campaign posted on its official Russian social media account and posted a statement to say it had removed all materials related to the promotion. However, evidence of the stunt lives on in screenshots.
Burger King’s Russia division has a history of horrific publicity-baiting stunts. Last year it made fun of a teenage rape victim in an online marketing campaign. The fast-food company used the likeness of Diana Shurygina, who was raped when she was 16 at a house party, as part of a buy one get one free burger offer.
And it’s not just Russia; Burger King has a global track record of misogynistic marketing. In Singapore the company advertised a seven-inch burger with overtly sexual imagery and a tagline saying “It’ll blow your mind away.” The model featured in the 2009 advertising campaign later came forward to say she had no idea her image was going to be used in that way.
