Sometimes I’m amazed how much I haven’t realized the amazing things in my life. I used to think my happiness depended on my outward successes and the people who were around me. I always depended on being accepted by everyone around me so I often sacrificed my personal wants and needs and didn’t act my self. I only acted like my accepted self and not the me I enjoyed. People never really understood me when I acted like my real self. The way I thought and perceived things was simply different from everyone else. So I tried to do it their way. And I spent years faking it but all it got me was an incredible alienation with myself. And it made me blind to the miracles in my life that were happening all around me. Everything in life felt fake to me and I couldn’t understand it. Everything began to fail me. My religion, my relationships, my job at the time. I didn’t realize that everything old was just clearing out to make room for new and amazing things. Things like being me because it’s the most natural and fun way to act, realizing that happiness is something that comes from within and I control just how happy I want to be, learning to love myself and serve my basic needs and goals before going and trying to support everyone else, even though I have to fight the urge to do it cause I hate seeing people in need. I realized that my freedom is a divine right, not something a government or corporation can grant me. I am a Manifestor and Creator here to bring in the acceptance of change to a better way of life where we share our abundance with all and no one is left out. I just need to find my outlet to plug into to and go from there, but I realize this time nothing can store and my infinite potential. I think I’m gonna change my blog to something name. Not sure if I can do that or have to make a new blog.
Advertising’s image of women. Watch this and get your mind blown.
This needs to stop.
I am not female but I really don’t think that matters. EVERYONE needs to see this.
Important shit. Also as if anyone needed another reason to love Kate Winslet.
Back in 07, Obama said he agrees all GMO (genetically modified food) should be labeled. A week ago he sign into law, a protection act for #Monsanto that will allow them to plant there seeds and sell there food to people without them being able to sue if it makes them sick…wow.
This is not a thread bashing Obama, so please leave you hate elsewhere. This is aimed at the whole administration, democrats and republicans, because the bill had to pass through the house AND senate. Monsanto could screw us all, educate yourselves people.

Hypocrisy is a way to common attribute of our every day society.
Six simple rituals for more winning:
1. Drink a glass of water when you wake up. Your body loses water while you sleep, so you’re naturally dehydrated in the morning. A glass of water when you wake helps start your day fresh.
2. Define your top 3. Every morning ask yourself, “What are the top three most important tasks that I will complete today?” Prioritizes your day accordingly and don’t sleep until the Top 3 are complete.
3. The 50/10 Rule. Solo-task and do more faster by working in 50/10 increments. Use a timer to work for 50 minutes on only one important task with 10 minute breaks in between. Spend your 10 minutes getting away from your desk, going outside, calling friends, meditating, or grabbing a glass of water.
4. Move and sweat daily. Regular movement keeps us healthy and alert. It boosts energy and mood, and relieves stress.
5. Express gratitude. Gratitude fosters happiness. Each morning, think of at least five things you’re thankful for. In times of stress, pause and reflect on these things.
6. Reflect daily. Bring closure to your day through 10 minutes of reflection. Asks yourself, “What went well?” and “What needs improvement?”
Got this in my email today:
We are elders of the Maasai from Tanzania, one of Africa’s oldest tribes. The government has just announced that it plans to kick thousands of our families off our lands so that wealthy tourists can use them to shoot lions and leopards.The evictions are to begin immediately.
Last year, when word first leaked about this plan, almost one million Avaaz members rallied to our aid. Your attention and the storm it created forced the government to deny the plan, and set them back months. But the President has waited for international attention to die down, and now he’s revived his plan to take our land. We need your help again, urgently.
President Kikwete may not care about us, but he has shown he’ll respond to global media and public pressure — to all of you! We may only have hours. Please stand with us to protect our land, our people and our world’s most majestic animals, and tell everyone before it is too late. This is our last hope:
Our people have lived off the land in Tanzania and Kenya for centuries. Our communities respect our fellow animals and protect and preserve the delicate ecosystem. But the government has for years sought to profit by giving rich princes and kings from the Middle East access to our land to kill. In 2009, when they tried to clear our land to make way for these hunting sprees, we resisted, and hundreds of us were arrested and beaten. Last year, rich princes shot at birds in trees from helicopters. This killing goes against everything in our culture.
Now the government has announced it will clear a huge swath of our land to make way for what it claims will be a wildlife corridor, but many suspect it’s just a ruse to give a foreign hunting corporation and the rich tourists it caters to easier access to shoot at majestic animals. The government claims this new arrangement is some sort of accommodation, but its effect on our people’s way of life will be disastrous. There are thousands of us who could have our lives uprooted, losing our homes, the land on which our animals graze, or both.
President Kikwete knows this deal would be controversial with Tanzania’s tourists - a critical source of national income - and does not want a big PR disaster. If we can urgently generate even more global outrage than we did before, and get the media writing about it, we know it can make him think twice. Stand with us now to call on Kikwete to stop the sell off:
This land grab could spell the end for the Maasai in this part of Tanzania and many of our community have said they would rather die than be forced from their homes. On behalf of our people and the animals who graze in these lands, please stand with us to change the mind of our President.
With hope and determination,
— The Maasai community of Ngorongoro District
- The Endorois people (also in Kenya) were removed from their sacred land in the 1970s under similar circumstances & for similar motives (the establishment of parks for colonial tourists.
PLEASE REBLOG THIS AND SPREAD THE WORD GUYS. Traditional cultures in East Africa have been getting completely trampled on by the government and barely anyone seems to know or care. And this loss of land isn’t just destroying their livelihood but their entire culture. These really are issues that could actually get some backing if people just freakin’ knew about them, so PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST!
Hope the hunters know they’re not just ending the lives of the animals they pursue.
I’ve been waiting for this to show up on my dash again, it’s been like 2 years wtf.
