@homsweethom @dandrawnwords #homwork This week is a selfie thing if you can take a pic of yourself in the mirror where you’ve lettered something that you should see every day—hence the mirror. I can’t physically do it right now, so maybe I’ll redo this one later. So we are supposed to say why we chose what we did. I chose this because a lot of people—in different fields or just because they are (I’m gonna leave this part blank, lol) don’t think people like me are worth much at all. Sometimes if it’s someone I loved, like family or whoever, I said goodbye after I told them I was just as “good” as they were, and I know I have a purpose! God didn’t create me for nothing. And I don’t want to waste any time or opportunities, and I don’t want to miss someone or something...so I want to remind myself that I have a purpose, and I don’t really care if anyone disagrees! #differentlyabled #checkyourprivilege #chronicillness #chronicpain #multipledisabilities #surgeriessincebirth #ilostcount #thankfultoGod #equality

Even tough I love fictional books, I think it's important to sometimes read books that cover real problems. One of the things I really like to educate myself about has always been social injustice. In case of racism - which I have never been a victim of, given my whiteness - I think it is essential to listen to People of Colour when they share their experiences. Growing up in mainly white surroundings in rural bavaria I never realized the privileges I had and still have in life.

So this book I recently read gave me so much to think about and I really think students should read it in school.

Grainy AF and still 🔥

Growing up, I was rather ambivalent about god, religion, spirituality . . .
Through recovery, I have come to trust that there is a power other than myself, that wants goodness, love and light for me -and others. A typical addict, I identify as "spiritual" and not "religious"... because it's a big part of the 12 steps. I was resistant for a long time . . .

For ME...prayer is acknowledgement of gratefulness. It is a humble request for help from the universe ... and in such, a surrender to the acceptance of not having any control over anything but my responses. It is a profound way to clarify my path - by speaking into action, my good intentions, faults, failings, and needs. It helps me recognize progress. It helps keep me grounded and balanced - reminding me that I am just a speck in the universe . . .

I don't ask or encourage anyone to think similarly. I don't have a name for my "God"...I have not as of yet found a weekly public service to attend. I do ask that you pause your judgment about "bible thumpers" etc ... religion as an institution is different from ones own spiritual connections to the void that is life. I used to smirk with rational superiority, when I heard of others reliance on faith and ritual. Now I appreciate that prayer works for me. Just for me. And that is enough.

Regrann from @riseupgoodwitch - I try to ask myself this everyday- when we recognize our systemic privileges and how they aid us above others we can learn ways to dismantle them. .
.
As a white person, my privileges when I step into the world are many. .
.
I know that if I didn’t have white skin, taking my dog out on walks on rural roads in southern Oregon could be very dangerous. my white skin allows me to exist in a way where others are not afraid of me, & Therefore they won’t use their systemic privileges to ‘protect’ them AKA harm me.
.
.
It’s something I try to think about everyday, and it’s important to remember that this isn’t easy work, but it’s work that needs to be done.

Who would you be without your privilege? Your male privilege. Your white privilege. Your cis privilege. Your hetero-privilege. Your able-bodied privilege. Your financial privilege. If you never had to think about it, you have privilege.

For me, the question is always how not to live in a state of permanent infatuation with this city. Could it have something to do with the fact that I haven’t lived here my entire life? Do natives get used to this? Can anyone possibly take this little paradise for granted, I wonder? It’s not only because of how breathtaking a landscape it is but also because of how privileged we are for living here, from an economic point of view to personal freedom and safety. I didn’t have *all this* where I come from. Sure, I come from a beautiful land with a very rich culture and soulful people (which I’m proud of), but back there I didn’t feel this safe or respected, I didn’t have all these opportunities, so I can’t help but to be deeply grateful. I wish there were more Amsterdams in this world.

It's shame how many females feel entitled to a man doing things like paying for both of them on dates and even risking his life to protect her. Hell, the entitlement is so out of control that some women expect this treatment from men they're not even dating, for no reason but because she's a woman. Yet a number of those same women lose their shit at the idea of doing things for their man. Then all of a sudden, "It's 2018, not the 1950s!" How do you expect a man to die for you, yet throw a tantrum if he asks you to cook for him, support him, etc? Didn't mama teach you how to keep a man?

As evidenced by the abundance of simps, single mothers, and female abusers, boys are already raised to be gentlemen. The problem is, most girls are not raised to be ladies. Wise up, or you'll be providing for a lot of cats, while good men will be next door providing for good women and the kids you wish you had.

Don't dress as any ethnic person if you aren't of that ethnicity. If you're so uncreative that your only ideas for Halloween costumes are racist and stereotypical portrayals of marginalized groups, don't dress up at all. Don't encourage your children to be racist either. There is no respectful way to dress as a non-White person. Cultural appropriation is not flattering, cute, hot, or funny. If you don't want to be called racist, don't do racist shit. Save yourself and your children future embarrassment.

Spent the weekend updating my Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher skills with Yoga Outreach. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to return to this practice, and for the wisdoms that have been shared with me over the past 3 days. #yogateacher #mindbodyconnection #therapytools #traumainformed #traumarecovery #gratitude #liveonpurpose #collectiveliberation #recovery #checkyourprivilege

Privilege •
Wrote during a chat with a friend ( @blythegonebad ) about poets trying to sound authentic while choking around their money/melanin/mom-and-dad-given privilege.

The operative word here is "trying." Authentic doesn't try. It is. •

Ahem. HE/HIM LESBIANS ARE VALID.

You better believe I'm turning off comments on this one.

Picture Description: Bright red border with watermark at the bottom surrounding text in bold, all capital letters font. It reads: Pronouns do not have to correlate with gender. They often do, but they don't have to. For trans people especially, finding pronouns you feel comfortable with can be an important step to discovering your gender identity. But it should be the ones that make you comfortable, not necessarily the ones that 'come with' your gender. Let people use the pronouns they feel best using and stop telling people what pronouns they can or can't use.

Using fat as an insult is gross and fatphobic. Shut up.
