The moment I figured out that stress was a function of the mind was literally the day that I got my life back. No longer consumed by things I couldn’t control I began to focus on those things that I COULD..and even then, once I put forth my best effort and attitude toward a thing I learned to let it all go. (YES, I let it ALL go!)... Ya see I look at life as a division of labor...the attitude and effort is up to me, I leave the rest up to God. Tirelessly worrying about a thing doesn’t change anything..but your attitude, effort, and faith can move mountains!!! It’s time to break up stress so you can live your best life now! Live your best life NOW! #stressed#stopstressing#havefaith#beyondcontrol#doyourpart#releaseandletgo#liveyourbestlifenow#begreateveryday
(Part 1) The woman pictured here was photographed by @somaliforgottenminds. They’re a team of volunteers/doctors/specialists in Somalia helping those with mental illnesses. She’s quoted as saying, “Schizophrenia is loud. It is so so loud. I came into this room for some quiet time but it’s even louder now. And I can’t hear you.” I grew inspired by this brave woman and wrote a short story. I’d like to thank the incredible @somaliforgottenminds for their noble work in Somalia. Mental illness is too often ignored in our community. We can all do our part by raising awareness and donating to their cause. Thank you for your attention. Check my next post for the story. It may have to continue in the comments because of the length. Thanks again!
#emmagonzalez is an inspiration and a true patriot. Speaking up about the toxic normalization of violence, murder and abuse in this country is not easy and #istandwithemma 🇱🇷 There’s no better time than here, there’s no better time than now. Call your senators. It is our human responsibility to acknowledge the truth and do something about it. Oregonians, there are bills RIGHT NOW that need your attention on the local level. With your help and attention, Oregon can pass laws to help families and people who are at risk of being murdered because of the prevalence of gun ownership and domestic violence. To put it in plain terms, 1 in 3 female murder victims and 1 in 20 male murder victims are murdered by intimate partners; and an abusers access to guns increases the risk of homicide by 400% Make the call. Give testimony.
