I wish I could block all the hurt that might come your way, the unkind words, all the times you're avoided, and the stares that are too long. As a mom I don't want you to experience anything but happiness. But son, you were put here for something so much greater. Your feelings will often be the sacrifice for your purpose. Many times since having Treg, I have thought that people with Down syndrome are placed on earth to be a daily reminder. A reminder to be our best self, to remain innocent, and not be desensitized by the horrible things happening around us every day. He is truly the closest thing to heaven I have known. I can't imagine how I got so lucky to have such a pure, sweet spirit in our home, as my son. But I strive now to be my best self, so I can be worthy of being Tregs mommy. • • • #illloveyouforever #mommyandme #heavenonearth #trisomy21 #theluckyfew #getin52 #cameramama #bethechange

Since a few years I'm actually not drinking alcohol anymore, just a glass once in a while(every few months). So we bought a bottle of red wine (Syrah) when we drove through Vineland. What else could you do. Buy one from overseas in a store? Naaah... my first Canadian wine, I actually didn't even know that Canada had local wine before we drove through Vineland. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #supportlocal #vineland #toronto #wine #wanderlust #travel #canada #unterwegs #roadtrip #choices #alternative #bethechange #inspiration #buylocal

[AUTO-ESTIMA] Após todas as msgs de carinho que recebi elogiando meu trabalho, tomei coragem para expor esse antes e depois que por muito tempo fugi de postar. Posterguei porque a vitória vem de um caminho de MUITAS lutas, conflitos internos, de valores, ideias, vaidade x profundidade, reflexões, auto-conhecimento. Temos aqui um exemplo NÍTIDO de uma pessoa que estava frustrada, indisposição rotineira, entre outros sintomas (reflexo de hormônios desregulados), extremamente confusa com sua questão profissional, e apesar de sempre ter sido alegre, a alegria demandava esforço, era uma alegria por saber que eu sou uma pessoa abençoada independente de qualquer coisa mas no fundo, tinha algo que incomodava e eu não aceitava que pudesse ser a minha necessidade de estar bem com meu corpo. Mas era. Eu aprendi a encontrar mil outras formas de elevar minha auto-estima nesse período onde meu corpo não respondia aos exercícios e dieta. Mas podemos ver que a maior modificação nessas imagens não é apenas o corpo e sim a expressão facial. Na foto 1 eu tirei foto após 30 dias de dieta 100% restrita e havia perdido 500g TAVA PUTAAAAA DA VIDA, muito brava mesmo. Enfim a vida me trouxe respostas e profissionais incríveis... aos poucos eu consegui o que TANTO almejei. Porque eu PERSISTI até o fim. Na foto 2 eu estava entendendo o que era ser feliz comigo, de verdade. O que era ter auto-estima. O que era CONQUISTAR uma batalha de ANOS cheios de lutas perdidas anteriormente. Cheios de quedas, não só com corpo, mas com todas as outras áreas da vida que a falta de auto-estima afeta DIRETAMENTE ! Sabe qual foi a maior dificuldade na manutenção ? Comicamente, abandonar o sentimento de frustração que me acompanhou por tanto tempo e me permitir SER FELIZ. Você também consegue. Eu te garanto, VALE A PENA. Já dizia OSHO “AME a si mesmo e OBSERVE” o amor próprio nos aproxima das pessoas ao nosso redor. Quanto melhor estivermos conosco, mais iremos conseguir contribuir com os outros. Mais ferramentas temos para viver relações mais saudáveis, compreensão das pessoas, situações e conflitos e melhor vai ficando o mundo onde vivemos 💜💜💜 amor próprio é vida. AME-SE, permita se amar

Because sometimes life is going to throw you a curveball and you are going to have think on your feet. It's fight or flight. It's a ready for anything kind of moment. It's sink or swim. What do you choose? Where do you go from here? Be the change your future self will thank in the end|| • • • • #hardtruth #deepthoughts #changeyourlife #fightorflight #motivationmonday #sinkorswim #inominaparatas #readyforanything #bethechange #payitforward #happysoul #loveyourwild #positivevibes #changeyourmindset #autumnleaves #portlandoregon #sleepingatlast #depthphotography

earlier today, I saw the tweet shown at the top of the above photo on my feed. (I just want to make clear the tweet wasn’t targeted at me, it was just one I saw!) • earlier today, my mental illness - and so many others’ - was invalidated by yet another individual who thinks that mental illness has a *look* . • but I am just as affected by my mental illness when I am posting pictures in my lingerie, giving my fat body representation and generally just feeling myself, than when I am dressed how I am in the picture in the right. • Sometimes my mental illnesses have my holed up in my bed for days and weeks, my hygiene neglected, isolated from everyone around me. ~ But sometimes, I get out of bed. I leave the house. I do the food shopping. I see friends. I do my own mini-photo shoot that I post on here. I do things I may not have done in my previous state. But I’m still mentally ill, because my mental illness doesn’t just go away. • Mental illness doesn’t have a look. It doesn’t discriminate. It affects people of all races, genders, ages. It could affect you, or someone or people close to you at various points in your life. It affects approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK, each year. 1 in 6 report experiencing a common mental health problem each week. Everyone has mental health. It is important to be mindful of yours, and others. To educate, and listen. To be there. Mental illness is cruel. It has taken; and continues to take thousands of lives. We can help prevent that. We can live.

REPOST @standup911 🔥This video really had me weak in the knees. This is true activism and humanitarian work. This right here is how we start the revolution and create unity. I don’t know if you ever been in a situation where you are face to face with someone who ‘hates’ you and instead of lowering yourself to their level you rise above and only show compassion. I have and it’s the hardest thing to go through but when you come from a place of love it all makes sense. #standup911 - "This Black man went out of his way to embrace a Nazi skinhead instead of fighting him" Repost @nowthisnews “I asked him, ‘Why do you hate me? What is it about me? Is it my skin color? My history? My dreadlocks?” When the Nazi looked away and avoided his questions, he gave him a hug. “I reached over and the third time, he wrapped his arms around me, and I heard God whisper in my ear, ‘You changed his life,'” Courtney said. When he asked again, “Why do you hate me?” the man replied, “I don’t know.” - Repost @truth.and.conspiracy & @standup911 👈👈 #follow #bethechange #letsraiseawareness
