MOST RECENT

I started working in retail and promised myself it would be temporary. As it turned out I stayed longer than I should. It's not a rewarding job as you are only as good as when you are present! I made it to management, thinking it would get better but only got worse. The stress, meeting unrealistic targets and the disciplinary hearings were too much. And the bottom line is I couldn't see my way out. It's the type of job you love to hate. It became comfort zone. I really didn't like it and it wouldn't make me wealthy. So I realised that if I stayed, I would commit career suicide and ended up no better off than when I started. So I did what people thought was the craziest thing to do. I went back to school. Yes you heard me, school. I did another crazy thing! I started working for myself. And a crazy thing happened to me, I started making money! I have learnt a valuable lesson: *What I Fail to Destroy will Eventually Destroy Me* #destroypoverty #povertyismanmade #iownmydestiny #povertywillnotdestroyme #Godismysource #JehovahJireh #motivated #success #juiceplus #juicepluswithchristine

From the time I was an adolescent I worried that my life wouldn’t mean anything.

I grew up in a family that was mean, toxic, cruel and negative.
I didn’t share my dreams because ambition and education were threats to the adults and they would crush me with negative comments.

I decided as a young person I would not accept my life to be the way my family wanted.
So, I broke the cycle.

I am the only person in my family to ever graduate from college. I have healthy children, a home, a good life and even though it has taken 48 years to get here, I will never stop growing, learning and I hope through these my life will have a bigger meaning.

I may not have been homeless, but I lived for years with no hope.
I may not have lived on state funded services, but I lived for years with no trust in systems, no trust in the “parents” in my life.

I know what it feels like to be cripplingly depressed, to question wether I wanted to keep living, Ive been alone, afraid and without support and love. I work with people in poverty every day and I see them struggle with these basic life situations.

Poverty is not necessary, poverty is a man made concept and we do have the resources to solve it.
We just have to care enough to get the money going in the right direction.
We have to hit rock bottom and realize we are only as good/strong as our weakest link and our impoverished communities can help our communities rise up. They just need the support and help....which is what I do everyday.

It’s what people in my life helped me do.

"modern gradualism, by being philosophically onto explaining everything in terms of the absence or presence of programs, illuminates how the insistence on program can be used as a sophisticated device against action." -- edit r

Today is Human Rights Day and I wanted to pass this message along: Poverty is a Violation of Basic Human Rights! There is enough wealth in the world to make everyone live above poverty. For me unequal/unfair distribution of wealth is one of the basic violations of human rights! Any decent basic and universal Human right should include living a poverty free life as one of its basic tenets! ..
..
.. There is nothing more degrading to a Human Mind, Body and Soul than Poverty!

Considering economic diversity is based primarily in minority areas and those areas are strategically called “projects” —which is by definition an individual or collaborative enterprise that is carefully planned and designed to achieve a particular aim—-but this is what they call subsidized housing #povertyismanmade #foodforthought💭

Savings procrastination is one of the most common enslavement and it's toll on tomorrow and happiness is heavy. Future wealth requires a lot of delayed gratification.

And there he is, sitting with a hope to sell some stuff so that he can wake up next morning to give life an another chance, hoping it to be in his favour one day...

Living in England or any other foreign countries some of us forget how lucky and blessed we are , Seeing things like little kids on the street with no clothes and no food makes me think how grateful we should be to our lord . For the the luxuries we have yet we still complain for more . ❤️😘 May Allah bless them all ❤️🇧🇩 #bengali #povertyismanmade #dhaka#bangladesh #mystreetboys #maygodblessthemalways #love
