HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! This week I turn 43. I can’t believe it…43! Unlike other years, this year has been one of profound change and I look forward to the experiences to come during my new “birth” year ☀️I don’t normally ask for anything, but this year I would like to ask you all for a gift. There’s a lot going on in the world and I was reminded just how divisive we can be as humans and I thought this was a good way to just put a slight pause on the us vs. them (whatever side you are on) ☀️Like Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world”, and therefore with that in mind, my gift request for this year, in lieu of flowers or cards or bottles of champagne, is for an act of kindness. ☀️ It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture by any means and if you're stumped or unsure about what to do, well here are some suggestions: • Buy the coffee for the person behind you in line at the coffee shop • Say hi to the new colleague at work • Smile to the person walking towards you on the street. • Offer to help someone carry their bags up from the subway (New Yorkers)/tube (Londoners) • Call or write to someone you haven’t spoken to in a while to say hi Basically, do something for another person that makes you feel good. Another way is to donate; so if your act of kindness is to donate then I encourage you to do so. And if you want to donate and would like suggestions I’ll be donating to these four charities for my birthday. @giventoliveuk - http://www.giventolive.com/ @mothers2mothers- https://www.m2m.org/ @ompowermentproject- https://www.ompower.org/ #Barakacommunitypartnerships - https://www.barakacommunity.com/ By the way, don’t worry I won’t check up on you, but if you would like to share what you did for your act of kindness then please do so in the comments ☀️I know there is a lot going on in the world today, but Brexit and Trump will still be there tomorrow, so let's take this moment to just see the world as we would like it to be 💖 #kindness #birthdaygift #donate #benice #bekind
Happy Canada Day! For the first time in several years I'm actually home to celebrate Canada's amazing past, present and future. I may no longer live in this wonderful country, but I am so proud to call Canada my home! 🇨🇦 💖🎉
This has been a tough week for various reasons, and this morning my ego has been fighting to take the wheel. As the Travis song "Why Does It Always Rain on Me" plays in the background of the restaurant I'm in, I look down and this is what I see. I'm instantly reminded that this is a process that brings me back to THE LIGHT. It was the reminder I needed, the reminder to let go, to forgive, to accept, and to be grateful. 🙏🏾♥️
There's a powerful transformation that comes from letting in your shadow self. Letting the shame and the fear in to join the party, to no longer exclude them, but also not let them become the DJ, is an experience that has given me new perspective and brought me closer to my authentic self.
