I strive to let people know that I see and/or feel something beautiful within them.
I was told a few days ago that I didn’t need to go around telling people their greatness all the time because there is no one who goes around and does that everyday. WRONG. I do that. And you know why? Because I know what it’s like to feel invisible, unappreciated, or just plain lonely. To be lost in your thought when your down or just having an off day. I’m not saying that if you don’t get praised 24/7, you should hate everyone on earth and be angry. No. What I’m saying is - I know what it’s like to want to hear at something good about you as a person every once in a while as a reminder that heck ya, I’m great!
Before anyone tells me you don’t need justification from anyone else to know whether or not you’re great, and should love yourself anyways - this is a love language. Words of affirmation - whether you get it from yourself or others, it’s lovely to hear every once in a while. Wouldn’t you agree?
Just remember that whether you see someone looking like they’re having an off day, or you just simply feel something great within them - please don’t hesitate to let them know. So often we walk around like ants just trying to get to our next destination using our antennas to dodge one another - slow down, and let someone know they make you smile. They will be uplifted whether they’re low or even on a high from life, and I promise - it’ll make you feel good in return.
VOLUME ON🔈 Did you watch the @espn #espys last night!?🏆 .
I hope so!! And if not, check out these 2 awesome clips of messages that really stood out to me!🎥 .
The first video features all the SURVIVORS of the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal when they received the Arthur Ashe award for courage. @alyraisman , Sarah Klein, & Tiffany Thomas Lopez spoke on their behalf & shared some very powerful words. If anyone out there is being abused in any way, shape, or form, NOW is the time to end it. Speak up and find someone who will listen to you. Don’t give up hope and never let yourself feel like you’re alone, because you’re not.💗 .
The 2nd video is when @jimkelly1212 received the #jimmyv award for perseverance. Jim’s son passed away at the young age of 8 due to a rare nervous system disease and left his family devastated. Later in life Jim found out he was diagnosed with cancer and now has had to fight it multiple times. His entire speech was about how you should always get up when you get knocked down & the affirmation that ANYONE can make a difference, not just famous people.🌻 .
So remember, NEVER GIVE UP & NEVER BE AFRAID TO SPEAK UP!💪🏻 #youmatter

Today marks 19yrs since my beautiful mother has been gone. So I would like to honor her memory by bringing awareness to domestic violence. She was taken from us due to domestic violence and though i know no one likes to talk about it, I will today. Please if there is anyone going through something even remotely to this to speak up and tell someone. Someone cares about you and your well being. One thing i always here from my my moms close friends and family is that they knew something was different. So if you see signs please also say something pull that person on to the side, check on them. I can not stress this enough. I was only 4 when my mother died so i do not remember her that much. But that doesn't mean i don't miss her. I miss that thought of having a mother. I only ask one more thing from all of you, to say a silent prayer today for those going and have gone through demostic violence. Rest easy momma i love you. #riplinda#speakup#demostic#violence#awareness
"Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you." (Deuteronomy 31:6)
There is so much power in being a woman.
In owning what that means to you.
In seeing how you add value to the world.
In exploring the depths, peaks & crevices of who you are.
There is so much power in speaking your voice.
And knowing how it sounds, what it has to say.
In learning what you do and don’t want.
In choosing for you.
There is so much power in expressing yourself.
In wearing what feels hot.
In doing your hair how you choose.
In presenting yourself how you truly desire.
There is so much power in your sexuality.
In exploring another’s skin, in feeling your own.
In experimenting with desires
In fulfilling your needs.
There is so much power in being a woman.
In the beat of your heart, pounding over that you love.
In your body experiencing the desires you hold.
In your mind creating a world you adore.
There is so much power in the full expression of who you are.
All of it.
Woman, there is so much power in being you, in owning you, all of it.

"The inclination to hold back when men are present is a huge mistake. Whether it's a small team meeting or a larger group, those who speak early and often are seen as more credible, greater risk takers, and possessing more leadership potential than those who speak later. Speaking early in meetings shouldn't be confused with being pushy or domineering . The longer you wait to speak, the more likely that someone else will say what you are thinking-and get credit for it. •
💡📌COACHING TIPS 📌💡
🔑In a group, be among the first two or three people to speak, and speak every ten to fifteen minutes thereafter. 🔑If you can't be among the first to speak, make sure you're not the last. 🔑You don't always have to have an opinion when you speak. Supporting what someone else had said, asking a legitimate question, or commenting on an emerging theme are equally good ways to make your presence known without appearing as if you like the sound of your own voice.

Body Image Struggles
I feel like I’m finally getting it!!!! This morning an instructor at my gym class who knows nothing about me other than my name, doesn’t know what I’ve been through or how I’m feeling said to me ‘you’re looking so strong & you’re so fit. You look like an athlete’.
This compliment actually made me feel so good & it surprised me...here’s why 👉🏻 Normally if anyone gave me a compliment about my appearance, fitness, strength, ability etc. I would awkwardly say ‘thanks’ but I wouldn’t really believe it. In my mind I would tell myself they didn’t know what they were talking about, they didn’t really see me. I think I still always had this view that I wasn’t fit, strong, lean, or good enough. Ever. Of course this was the silly eating disorder voice in my head convincing me I was no good all the time.
But this morning I didn’t question it in my mind (I still awkwardly said ‘thanks’ 😂) & I actually agreed with her (to a certain extent!!). I walked away smiling & thinking, YES I am fit and strong. YES I am looking good & healthy. YES YES YES 🙌🏻
Don’t worry, this is not some ‘omg I love myself’ post. I’m a realist & to me this is proof that I’m getting better at shutting that anorexia voice out. I’m once again feeling that little bit more comfortable in my new body which, yes is 6kg heavier. Which may not look like a lot, but it feels like a lot to me!
So I know she won’t actually see this, but I’m going to personally thank her for making my day today. She has no idea how taking 20 seconds out of her day to say that to me has made me feel. I’m also going to remember this & ensure when I think something positive about someone, to actually say it to them. Because it could make their day too 😊💕

The number One Killer of men aged 15-44 years of age in Australia is suicide. This statistic is way too high. It’s heartbreaking.
Last nights session was one for the boys. The kids brought along some great energy with them and it was awesome seeing them do their best at keeping up with their mums/dads! And to top it off, together we raised over $200 to donate to Lifeline. An amazing organisation working hard at saving lives. Thanks again for coming along team 👊🏼👊🏼
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Speak up. You are worth it. You are loved.There is help. A phone call can save your life. Ph: 13 11 14
Thanks to @harcourtshobart / @harcourts_tasmania for inviting Mitch to share his personal story this morning. Property sales is a high paced, and at times highly stressful environment, so we are grateful that the organisation are putting a focus on their staff’s mental health. #staychatty 🏡
Evidence says that #YouCanTalk safely about suicide.
Lifeline has collaborated with Everymind beyondblue headspace ReachOut.com Australia R U OK Day and Black Dog Institute to help Australians open meaningful conversations around suicide prevention.
We believe that suicide prevention is everyone’s business, so remember #YouCanTalk
"When we know better, we do better. I encourage all those who exert power in ways that hurt another; be it in school, at work or home. Words said or actions done can affect a person for life. What you do has a ripple effect... Bullying should be a habit that people grow up and out of. We as a society need to take a stand to eradicate bullying in all its forms and places. Live by the golden rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," and now that you know better... PLEASE go out and do better." - Ornella Gunesekere
It's time we did better! #StopBullying , speak up and share your stories with us #chokolaatemagazine#antibullyingcampaign#stopbullying#youth#teenagers#speakup @ornellamjg
Meet Susu, she has a B.A and M.A in Theatre art and performance from the best university in London. She shines like the sun, her body shaped in the "figure-8". Her eyes was truly the window to her soul because one could see through the sincerity and inward beauty. She is well mannered and speaks fluently like the Queen of England. Susu is at the top of her game in looking good. Many wanted to be like her. She's 35, depressed and still SINGLE. Coming from a home where early marriage is a MUST but her case was different.
Pressures from family and friends, low self-esteem and high standards trailed her down the path of anxiety and to the point she is now, ATTEMPTING SUICIDE.
Let's start from where it all began, shall we?
Susu has always dreamt of getting married to a man
6ft 8" tall, well arranged dentition, a graduate (B.eng & M.eng), fine lips, fair-complexioned, member of the beard gang association, romantic, rich, has to be on the top of his game in SLAYING and God-fearing.
Say hello 👋 to Onome
Onome is Susu's best friend and she is pretty good at match-making. Couple of blind dates have come and gone but none took the step, it either ended at the restaurant or she didn't even show up because she had to be on set. Years have gone pass and Susu's dream man hasn't been born.
It's 5:45 am and Susu's phone rang, mummy is calling. She knew what the conversation was all about so she rather ignored it. All dress to go to work and boom, there was Onome at her door.
She came to invite her for a party where her dream guy might be found. She agreed and later that evening she found her dream man.
Just the way she wanted him, but he was TAKEN that didn't stop them from exchanging contact and hanging out. They had lots and lots of fun until the worst, unexpected happened!!!
What!!! - She couldn't believe what she heard on the other side of the phone... To be continued
Over 3000 people take their own lives in Australia every year. It's estimated that well over 60,000 people attempt to.
This is just not okay. This madness needs to stop.
It truly is heartbreaking to think that people are in such an incredibly dark place yet still don't feel as though they can speak out.
A simple question can save a life.
Don't always just assume everything is fine. Sometimes those who seem to be doing the best are actually struggling the most. Let people know you are there for them.
Spread love...always ❤
There is too much hate. Too much judgement. Too much ignorance. TOO MANY SUICIDES. Too many closed eyes and turned backs from issues/epidemics that are NOT OK AND NEED OUR ATTENTION.
I’ve done a lot of crying today over the contradiction between Mormon “doctrine” about our LGBT brothers and sisters, and what I feel God is teaching me in my heart. Some of it just doesn’t match up, and I’m finally letting myself see and accept that, on a more honest level.
I love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and believe it is Christ’s Church in many ways. But I am coming to greater terms with the truth that when Christ’s Church is run men (inspired men I believe, but mortal and imperfect men nevertheless), it is not going to be a perfect church. (A duh for all the non-Mormons reading this, but with the way I was raised, and even educated thru college... this has been a hard wall to break through for me).
I don’t claim to have answers because I don’t (besides ♥️). But I just know my heart swells and spirit seems to light on fire when I learn more about this topic.
I know little but will continue to seek Truth.
I will not sit back in silence. I will #loveloud and do my best to #lovelikechrist ... and educate through my art, voice, and love on the way.
A WARNING: the following post discusses child sexual abuse please consider not reading on if this content may be upsetting to you. Today at the ESPY awards the Arthur Ashe Courage Award was given to the child athletes who endured sexual abuse while they were under the care of the Michigan State and USA Gymnastics doctor. 141 athletes who have all spoken out were on stage at the awards and honoured for their courage. Revealed throughout the night were the number of years the girls reported the abuse before anyone took their words seriously. What epic bravery to stand up on stage and relive their stories in this public forum. In addition, many of the other courageous athletes who have a shared experience did not appear. The number of women and girls who spoke out and were systematically ignored cannot be ignored now. PS my heart hurts writing this post. I didn’t know how to find the words, but this should never ever have happened and I cannot express how my whole body wants to group hug or time travel protect those girls and women. Em x
Start the Conversation: It’s okay to have a break down once in a while.
Remember, it’s not only your physique, you can be mentally exhausted too.
Those days when you cried for no reasons, felt worn out, had no intentions in doing anything. Those days were normal. You’re human. You get tired.
It’s okay to cry, to pour out your emotions, or however you feel is best to release yourself. 🌥
But remember to ask for help when you need to. People cares. We really do.
I know this is super late but I will go live tomorrow 07/19/2018 on Facebook at 8pm CT tomorrow to talk all about my experience at the Miss United States Pageant. I will also tell y'all about my future plans in regards to my platform. My video will be public so any of y'all can come and comment on it. Just search my name: Nassat Parveen. Come with your questions cause I will also be doing a live QandA! See you all there!:). #letstalk#pageantweek#missoregonus#shesbeautyandshesgrace#MUSP#speakup#reachout#youarenotalone
“Don’t judge others asking for help. You are also shaming others giving the help.”
I read this on @pinterest but wanted to share this quote here. With it finally more and more acceptable talking about getting help, there’s so much stigma around it. Honestly, what we hate on in others only reflects what what we hate within ourselves. And it puts down the people trying to be supportive in a world that’s built on the necessity of building a community.
Whether it’s mental help, financial help, a small or big favor, we are not meant to do this thing called Life alone. People literally thrive on feeling supported. So why not show you care by both asking for help to your loved ones and reaching out to those you think a little more love? 💕
Today marks 5 years since Stay ChatTY became an incorporated association.
Working in suicide awareness is certainly at times challenging, but most of the time we feel a strong sense of achievement.
Our team are so grateful for the ongoing support and love we continue to receive.
Happy birthday to us! 🎁 #StayChatTYTurns5
Thank you to @honey.cake.co
Mental health refers to our psychological and emotional well-being as well as social. It affects a person’s ability to cope with the ‘normal stresses’ of life.
