Wow there sure are a lot of words that get thrown around like confetti.* “oh my gosh I was hyper yesterday, I was soooo manic lol.” Well...no. That’s just energy, like a natural surge of...energy. We all naturally have ups and downs because we have hormones. I have ups and downs that are not related to my mental illness. But here’s a few of my true manic episodes: I thought I was meant to save the children of Syria and so I packed up all my clothes into garbage bags and was ready to fly there..I didn’t sleep for days preparing for my trip...or the time I was ..Er.. **on drugs, went to the mall, spent all my money, then immediately had to go to an inpatient facility because I was waaayyy to reckless. I didn’t know what I bought until I got home bc the whole thing was foggy, but turns out I bought a nice side table, paintings, head-wraps, and a leopard print bathing suit that said “LA babe.” (???) I still question that one. Point is, we have to stop using language meant to describe states of mental illness as Willy-nilly terms to describe every day life. It just undermines the experiences of people truly suffering. We have to give some (all) credit to the DSM and stop inventing our own definitions. Ok, rant over, don’t dm me about the episodes bc those were VERY weird times in my life. Haha. • *confetti is normally amazing **addiction and dependency can become very bad in a manic state. #selfcompassion#bekindtoyourself#selfimage#selflovefirst#selflovequotes#selfloveclub#selflovewarrior#selflovejourney#selfloveisthebestlove#selftalk#positiveselftalk#mentalhealthquotes#mentalhealthmatters#mentalhealthawareness#selfesteem#selflove#support#shareyourstory#compassionate#empathy#bebrave#mentalillnessawareness#anxietyrecovery#mentalhealthrecovery#mentalhealthwarrior#anxietysupport#mentalhealthsupport#yougotthis#youreamazing#insomia

It took me a long time to realise this, but once I did, what a difference it made! As INFJs we absorb others emotions. Once you realise in some cases they are projecting what they're uncomfortable with onto you, yet it's theirs, not yours, you can begin to move forward.

WHAT???? I did not know that!😡🤬😤😡🤬😤🤬😡Posted @withrepost • @grandpawkavanagh If you look up the description for Angora fibre(wool) it describes how soft and silky it is and tells of its fluffiness and how it is much warmer and lighter than wool,it goes on to say that the fibre is Produced by the Angora rabbit.If you were to describe your skin,would you say "I produced this skin" no because it's part of you.These beautiful sentient animals dont fuckin produce Angora fibre for us to make sweaters . They have their front and back legs tied and then they are stretched out and have their fur ripped off their little delicate bodys in their senses, how barbaric is that. Please dont buy anything that derives from the torture of any animal,there are so many other alternatives .Can you imagine having all the hair on your head ripped off by the fist full. If it comes from an animal there has definitely been tremendous pain and suffering involved. #veganfortheanimals #bunnys#rabbits#wool#fibre#pain#suffering#crulty#savagery#intent#awake#woke#knowledge#compassion#love#empathy#devinespirit#universe#fixtheplanet#prayer#creator.

It’s amazing to be here at this exact moment. I asked for all of this and the universe delivered. Before I walked on stage I was thinking about a post that @andyfrisella made the other day and I wanted to also share 15 things I have learned about myself over the past two years. 1. I no longer care about proving anything to anyone other than myself. I used to think I needed to prove people wrong and that never served me well. 2. I am mentally strong and have an advanced EQ 3. Most things aren’t important 4. Things don’t get easier. We get stronger. The harder things are, the more excited I get about conquering the challenge. 5. I am the only person in control of my success or my failures. 6. I have gotten this far in life by using only 20-30% of my potential 7. I have only gotten this far in life by using only 20-30% of my potential and I need to unlock more. 8. My goals have been to small. I need to think bigger. 9. I’m a strong, confident, loving man who is also mindful, open, and aware. 10. I am capable of achieving anything that i truly want in life. 11. My happiness is tied directly to my achievements and testing myself to continue to grow to the next level 12. I would rather fail and be wrong and press forward than be crippled and stagnate w fear 13. Discipline creates focus 14. If I can support you on your journey, i will. 15. I don’t doubt myself and this is definitely the most tired I have ever been but also the most awake. #aretesyndicate #pressforward #hustle @aretesyndicate @lewishowes #veteran #zerofucks #gratitude #empathy #love #brenebrowne #live @garyvee #

I once heard an old story about a person who was given the opportunity to observe Pablo Picasso at work. Hour after hour, #picasso labored away, intently applying brush to canvas, meticulously scrutinizing each stroke. When at the end of the day, the observer was given the chance to approach the great man, the obvious question was, “What will the painting be?” The response was, “Oh, this is not a painting, I was practicing my circles.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You’re never too old or too wise to #practice #empathy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #stuartkrobinson #actorslife #losangeles #entrepreneur #stuartkspeaks

“Happiness is a warm puppy.” - Charles Shultz #riskhappy

The world is changing around us. We are living in a time where fear is driving our culture and events challenging humanity. Media driven events perpetuating fear. As human beings we seem to have embraced the blame game, stepped into an arena of finger pointing and justifying our rage. And as if that is not enough, we hold shaming people as a trophy. Our fear driven environments perpetuating the kool-aid era of black vs white, man vs woman, culture vs culture. It’s time to step into the leadership of humanity. It starts with you.

Letting go of negativity Negativity can hold us back from many things in life. An attitude of ‘I have the worst luck’ or “nothing ever goes my way” infects the mind. Your perception creates your reality. When you invest all your energy into what you don’t want, your brain conducts a transderivational search and conspires to provide the very thing you don’t want. A few tips to let go of negativity: 🌟 Give yourself a window to complain for five minutes, once a day and then bolt that window shut. Time yourself or partner with a close friend to allow the complaining, moaning and whining to occur for 6 minutes only. Then stop it. 🌟 When you practice gratitude, nothing else exists at that moment. Your brain cannot immerse itself in fear and be grateful at the same time. Try it on. Invest in a journal and start with writing one thing down in the morning and before you go to bed, identifying what you are grateful for. What you focus on, is what you get. 🌟 Self-reflection. Negativity stems from a place of unhappiness. Adopt curious questioning to unveil what is triggering your responses, what you would like to change. Edit the story on how you can improve to live a happier existence.

These are the thoughts, hopes and passions that asylum seekers, refugees and migrants shared with artist Carole Isler.

Carole Isler, a Swiss artist, visited our projects in Athens and on the island of Chios to sketch portraits of refugees, migrants and MSF staff and share their stories.

I can’t imagine having to flee my home not knowing what I would do to make money and survive in a new land.

Yep. Check it at the door. Don’t make me call you on it. You don’t want me to do that. As an empath, I can do that quicker than most. You have the ability to affect the mindsets of others during the day. If your mindset is great, then it’ll probably run off on other people. The same thing if it’s bad. And I don’t know about you but I don’t even put up with bad mindsets anymore. And it makes such a huge impact on the rest of your day as well. I was stuck in traffic a couple of times today, while on my way to appointments. Y’all, summer traffic is weird. 🙄🤷🏻‍♀️ And I ended up being late to one appointment because of it. And normally, I rush in and start apologizing and blaming traffic. Today, I just mentioned that summer traffic is weird, and apologized for being late. That’s it. No complaining, no anxiety. Just “ok, we’ve got 25 minutes left. Tell me what we’re doing.” And you know what? It made a huge difference in my mindset for the rest of the day. I got stuck in traffic during a random thunderstorm (Thanks, Boulder! 🙄), and just sat in traffic, like I still lived in California and it was a normal thing. 😉 Right now, I am enjoying a beer and a burger before seeing Toy Story 4, and it’s glorious. * Do you let the mindsets of others affect you? Or do you let your mindset affect them? (It goes both ways. 😉) * * * #theelitesuite #empowersocial #holistichealth #holistichealing #brainhealth #empath #ptsd #mentalhealthmatters #mindsetmatters #mentalhealthrecovery #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #bloggersofinstagram #wellnessblogger #wellnessjourney #healingjourney #mystory #mindsetiseverything #empathy #healyourself

Foi o dia deles. A falta de empatia que ainda vejo à minha volta, que circula por diferentes gerações. São seres humanos, tratados como se não fossem por muitos, ainda. Obrigados a sair do lugar a que chamam casa ou deveriam de chamar casa. Onde deveriam de se sentir mais seguros do que noutro lugar qualquer. Quase que se perde a conta aos que ficam pelo caminho, mas não nos esquecemos. Mas a humanidade não está perdida de todo, e cada vez mais consciência se ganha de que atitudes têm de ser tomadas. Eles precisam de nós, mostremos então que não estão sozinhos. Por um mundo melhor e mais seguro, onde ninguém tenha de fugir e colocar a sua vida em risco de modo a que nada de pior lhes aconteça 🙏 @un_refugee_agency #refugeeswelcome #refugeesday #refugiados #maisempatia #empathy #unhcr #amnestyinternational #amnistia #astepwithrefugees

I am going to be doing a full 5-Card Oracle Card Reading (deck to be announced!) for my followers tomorrow night in celebration of Litha (which is actually on Monday). My intention is to start us all off in this sacred weekend with some wisdom and guidance to get us through. Turn on post notifications if you want to be one of the first to benefit from this powerful reading! There will actually be 3 readings!! And the first step will be for you to choose which of the three piles is for you. :) This will be a glimpse at what you would be able to expect during a personalized reading from me! Every day is sacred, but these opportunities to notice their sacredness, spend time on their sacredness, and enjoy their sacredness, are special. 🧚🏼‍♀️💫 Peace be yours!

You are not an extra in someone else’s film. You are the star in your own life.

Repost @carolyn_spring_pods Embracing and bringing closer, yours or another’s pain and suffering. Being with is the empathetic response. Encouraging yourself or someone else to get over or let go of something is a more violent response. The body, mind and nervous system organically let go when it is safe, when it is loved. Not when it is abandoned. There is no need to do letting go.

💚Books about feelings💙 I Feel Teal #laurenrille - @aimeesicuro This books is beautifully illustrated to show how colours are so closely intertwined with how we feel and express emotions. It was a lovely tool to open up conversations about how to tell how other people are feeling by observing their facial expressions and body language. The simple text challenges us to think of what emotions are really being expressed on each page. ‘A quiet ecru’, for example, could be peaceful, calm, interested, inthralled, intrigued... so many possibilities! Children feel some pretty big, complex emotions and when they don’t have the language to tell you about it, it might leave them feeling like no one is on their team. This book can help not only label and recognize emotions, but also to see that everybody experiences big emotions! It’s also important to recognize that not all emotions are positive or negative, black or white. Some emotions sit in a grey area and that can be confusing. I Feel Teal has been a wonderful addition to our personal library. What is your favourite book, story or song about emotions?

Who are #refugees? They are individuals who were forced to flee from their homes due to devastating circumstances outside of their control. They are individuals whose spirits have been broken. They are people whose dreams have been deferred. They are people who have faced hardships that most of us will have to face. They are resilient individuals who hold onto hope and persist in spite everything. Above all, refugees are members of the human race. Today, and every day, I stand with refugees. I encourage everyone reading this to do the same for refugees-our brothers and sisters in #humanity. #syria #iraq #afghanistan #yemen #palestine #sudan #somalia #rohingya #humanrights #humanitarian crisis #hope #love #compassion #empathy #peace #refugeecrisis #world #worldrefugeeday

“This is how things have always been done.” “War is necessary.” “Boys will be boys.” “Respect my culture....” “This is tradition...” “We have to be practical.” “Let’s be realistic.” People will make any excuse to defend the “need” for violence, perhaps because it is seeded so deep in our history that many cannot imagine a world without it. So are we evolving or not?What kind of world do you want to live in? What we do to another, we do to ourselves. We are ONE. Only when we understand this and live by it will we find real peace.

I’m MAD. No I’m PISSED. I don’t post when I’m mad. I don’t indulge in posting my personal views. But I have to SAY something. In the last few days - actually more like the last year or so I have seen breaking news about young people whose teenage misbehavior has become a headline. An admission rescinded, a police incident that didn’t result in charges SPLASHED over the news. Stories about minors AKA children or newly minted new-adults. I won’t bother to # the networks because 99% are guilty of this. Those of us over 40 didn’t live in a digital age where every teenage mistake, mis-step and misguided comment was captured instantly to be used against you later. Those of us over 40 never SMOKED anything, DRANK anything, or SAID anything offensive when we were teens right? Anyone? Anyone? I didn’t think so. Those of us under 2 who are PERFECTLY POTTY TRAINED, never have a MELT DOWN, have IMPECCABLE manners is typical right? Anyone? Now apparently this is the breaking news. Teens act like teens. Infants act like infants. It is our job our duty our responsibility to teach them. And that does NOT include mean spirited character assassinations in the media.

when discussing non human animal sentience/non human animal related issues, often we discuss through a consumerism lens which misleads others to believe that veganism is purely about consumerism. consumption of animals is a large part of veganism, however it starts with ideologies. first, we regard non human animals as inferior and our own species as far more superior, in appearance, intelligence and way of communicating. this human supremacy ideology is what therefore allows us to justify breeding animals into existence for the purpose of consumption and exploiting them in horrific ways. the speciesist ideology is also very prevelant, as we believe that dogs, cats and other domesticated animals are worthy of far more respect and love and are deemed sentient and able to feel emotion, whereas farm animals/animals used for consumption or other human related purposes are regarded as not possessing the characteristics of domesticated animals which contributes more to their inferiority. we’ve seen human supremacy at the root of many issues, the belief that some lives matter more than others is catastrophic to say the least. ALL beings deserve to be respected, and should be able to live their own life as they please, free from exploitation 🕊 📸 @sans.beast - - - - #vegan #veganism #speciesism #injustice #justice #equality #equalityforall #activist #activism #veganactivist #humanrights #rights #socialjustice #feminist #femme #antioppression #oppression #animals #animallover #respect #animalliberation #picoftheday #plantbased #plantbasedliving #lifestyle #freedom #love #compassion #empathy #instagood

We continued the rollout of our GRACE program this week at Tucson Medical Center with GRACE Reflection Sessions. In the words of one participant "I really liked the journaling. It’s something I always wanted to try. The topics were tough because it makes you consider the positive and the negative. It made me more aware of things I have set aside and haven’t dealt with internally. It was helpful to get it all down on paper. Now I want to keep doing it." #grace #gratitude #compassion #empathy

You may know this already, but visualisation is *so* important in the work we do! 👀💎👀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every Tuesday morning we have a team meeting, where Fiona talks about our quarterly goals and breaks down numbers for the team. We initially started this ritual with a good old Excel spreadsheet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Only recently, we changed it -let's admit it, for the better, and started to use a much more visual way. How? Using another good old friend of us: the whiteboard. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Works a treat! What a simple trick, to be able to change the way we do things and make them more understandable, approachable, and easier. Especially when it comes down to numbers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is mainly because visualisation helps one to express the message in a more human, engaging and positive way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And you know what?  When we need an extra visual sweet treat, we call our legendary John to put his magic into action! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 credit @_nakedambition

. . #challengeday3 of 6 #orlandocompassion challenge by #ignitebewell . . Today I watched two interviews: One with Karen Millsap @karen.millsap ( soul, resilience & life coach, https://www.karenmillsap.com/, @the.groflo ) who shares her powerful story of compassion after tragedy and grief, and the other with Danielle Cosgrove @danielle__cosgrove ( founder of LDRSHP Collective @ldrshpcollective ) with her powerful sharing of compassion and uplift through yoga. . . A few takeaways from the interviews in my own words: ————————————————————————————— What are some of the ways I can put compassion into action? When I see a need, take initiative to assist. Practicing mindfulness and being mindful daily helps me to recognize what I can do to better the world in a variety of ways. In other words, I don’t wait for the opportunity to put compassion into action, but embody kindness and live kindness. It can begin as simple as intentionally and mindfully practicing compassion toward myself and my family. That practice can easily expand outside of my household. From a household to a community, a community to communities statewide, statewide to nationwide, nationwide to global. What the world be like if everyone practiced kindness, put compassion into action and uplifting each other daily? Simply sublime for sure. . . ✨ Who is your Kindness Crush? :) ✨ . .
