The stirring, and shaking, in my bones is real. Crumbling old stories, and ways. Like swallowing my truth for so long, has eroded some parts of me.
I always came, to you. I walked down tricky pathways, while you waited in the comfort of your chair. And never did you desire to walk those roads, the ones I knew so well.
Never did you ask where I come from.
Truth be known, you wouldn’t know where to find me. And I allowed you to dare me to bend, and bend, and eventually break. I allowed it.
And still, you wouldn’t know where to find me. You wouldn’t ask, or even look. And finally I feel brave enough to see this. My bones aching and sore, because now I know everything must change ~ core pieces of the very foundation that holds me.
Sometimes we can’t unsee things we have seen.
Berbagi bukan tentang seberapa besar dan seberapa berharganya hal yang kau beri, namun seberapa tulus dan ikhlasnya apa yang ingin kau beri.

#Respect starts with the Self. Every single time you say #YES to your family, #friends, clients, etc. when you want (and sometimes need) to say #NO you are #disrespecting yourself. You are whispering that you are not worthy of time, #energy and space. And if you hear this enough times you’ll eventually start #believing it.
Stand up for yourself by saying no. No more #giving to other’s until you’ve given to yourself first. Those closest to you want to see you #healthy, happy and fulfilled; even if this means that they only get to see you every once in a while.

First of all we would like to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to this amazing list of sponsors who have committed to participating in our back to school give away for the 70805 community which will be held @club_soulbr on Aug 4th (more details to come)‼️ We started off with 3 sponsors and the list has continued to grow over the past week. Each of these people are well-established business owners and community leaders in Baton Rouge and could have very well did this on their own, but we've decided that hosting this event COLLECTIVELY will prove to be the most effective and efficient way to actually make a difference and truly be beneficial in giving back to the kids in the 70805 area‼️ We plan to finalize this list by the end of the week, so if you would like to be a part of "REJUVENATE AND ALIVE GIVING BACK TO 70805" please get in contact with us before the end of the week! You can DM us for details. Thanks to @effumlife @kc_therealtor @fashionstopbr @trell_da_businessman @thehiphopdoc@dunbardejon @imjust_ken @doodie_wildthang @d_boilers @collegequickstop@cupcakejunkiebr@coreelectrical @iamnardfit_ @cocoastyles@dceats225#support#giving#kids#together#community#leadership#repost
The Context of The Widow’s Mite⠀
We should praise the widow’s faith, as Jesus did, but taken in context, this scripture has more to say about unscrupulous religious leaders than about generous poor people. It tells us that judgment is coming on leaders who take advantage of the poor.⠀

Imagine not having anything new for your brand new baby... That’s the reality for many of our clients. At the Centre, we celebrate these moms, and their new baby, with the gift of a layette filled with brand new items. I wish you could see their faces when they see everything that you, our donors, have provided. There are sleepers, receiving blankets, onesies, teddy bears and more. These are the things needed in abundance, but for many of our clients - they would be unattainable luxuries.
Our layette room is full of beautiful baby items thanks to the generosity of our faithful donors. However, right now we are in desperate need of new sleepers and onesies, sized 0 -12 months. If you can help, or know of someone who could, you could bless some tiny baby - and a very proud mom!
💯 shipped today!!! to @littledressesforafrica . The 100 Dresses for Little Dresses for Africa Project year 5 has officially wrapped.

How do you teach philanthropy to kids? Start with one simple thought, says professional philanthropic advisor Colleen Mitchell, founder and principal of VENTURE3Philanthropy. “Everyone has something to give. Everyone has something unique to share.” If you want to raise philanthropic children, she explains, the key is teaching them to be not only aware of others’ needs, but also in tune with their own unique abilities to give and share.
Teaching kids to be generous involves understanding their unique gifts and matching those to the needs of the world around them.
Have you experienced this before? 🤔
The truth will prevail, and their harsh words only serve to manifest negativity in their lives. Acknowledge that they’re doing the best they can with their journey, although it doesn’t seem like it on the surface level. Keep in mind, people don’t know what they don’t know, or are simply in denial of their actions and beliefs. Send them love anyways. Not because you should, or have to, but because you want to💙

You make the small moments special. Life is not going to be full of heart-throbbing thrills and non-stop adventure, but when it slows down, I'll know I can sit with you, talk with you, or just hold around you, and still feel like I'm going 1000 miles an hour.
