Oh you know just watering my visions and turning poop stuff into flowers hehehe 🔮👁💗🌹

On the real, I’m feeling this journey lately. The test of outside validation has revealed itself and the deeper I commit to my dreams, my core truths, and values, the more empowered and authentic to ME I become. 💪🏼❤️💪🏼❤️💪🏼.

It is no news that even today, women are encouraged (no matter how passively) to take up professions that will let them “have a family” – that is, take up careers that does not ask of them their whole time and too much of their energy, leaving enough time for them to take care of household chores and their families. In times like these, it is important to remember and talk about women who gave no heed to such ‘well meaning’ advice and paved their own paths for themselves in a male dominated field like STEM.

September 21, 1981. 37 years ago. Sandra Day O'Connor is voted unanimously onto the U.S. Supreme Court in a vote of 99-0 in the Senate, becoming the first woman in American history to sit on the Supreme Court. O'Connor had become a lawyer at Stanford Law School in just two years, graduating near the top of her class at the age of just 22 in 1952. However, likely due to her being a woman, she was unable to find work at a private law firm and opted to become a deputy county attorney for San Mateo, California. After working for a short time there, she and her husband, John Jay O'Connor III moved to West Germany where she worked as a civilian lawyer for the army. After returning to the U.S.A. in 1957 and moving to Phoenix, Arizona, O'Connor opened a small law firm before becoming assistant attorney general for Arizona State in 1965. In 1969, she was appointed to Arizona State Senate before moving on to sit on the Arizona Court of Appeals in 1979 by Governor Bruce Babbitt. On July.9/1981, President Reagan appointed O'Connor to the U.S. Supreme Court to fill the seat of retiring Justice Potter Stewart. On September.25/1981, O'Connor was sworn in as the 102nd Justice of the Supreme Court and would go on to serve for nearly two and a half decades before stepping down in January 2006. #oconnor #supremecourt #sandraoconnor #sandradayoconnor #ussupremecourt #stewart #potterstewart #babbitt #brucebabbitt #reagan #ronaldreagan #arizona #phoenix #phoenixarizona #courtjustice #equalityofopportunity #womensmovement #1980s #80s #1981

Chicken Soup - For My Grandmother

In March 2017, the Jewish cemetery where my grandparents are buried was vandalized, part of a spate of anti-Semitic attacks across the US.

The day I found out was International Women’s Day. On instinct, I began writing about my grandmother’s life - she immigrated to the US in 1911 at age 4 to escape Pogroms - massacres of Jewish people in Russia. She used great creativity to survive the Depression. She lost a daughter. In her 70’s she helped my mom by caring for me after school. She was, as I knew her, the quiet matriarch, the lynchpin of our family. She expressed her love through cooking - chicken soup, stuffed cabbage, chicken salad.
As I wrote, I felt called to address the vandals directly. What did they hope to gain? What fear, darkness, absence of love ruled their lives that this violent act was their best attempt to feel powerful?

Yesterday was Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement in Judaism. It is a day to come clean to God for past sins.
In an ideal world, perhaps the vandals (and a lot of other people confusing cowardice with power) would use this day to atone for the pain they have caused. I also chose this day to release this video because I personally want to atone for not having spent more time with my grandmother at the end of her life. She gave me so much; yet in some ways I was too young then to truly appreciate it.

Delayed posting this photo because I was on the fence…
-
On the fence because for once I didn’t do any touch ups on my body.
-
But I know every time I share something uncomfortable, it helps others feel less alone... which is why I feel compelled to write this.
-
If you followed me for a long time, you’ll know that my old feed used to be pretty much 80-90% selfies (swipe left)
-
Confession: Showing off my love for makeup was ONE of the reasons, but it wasn’t the ONLY one.
-
Posting buttloads of selfies was also because I was never that confident in posting full body pictures: I’m not that in love with my body, I think my head is too big and my eyes too small, and a whole other laundry list of flaws that only I probably see.
-
But the last couple of months of posting more personal content has taught me the power of sharing, and I hope by writing this it will make someone out there feel a little more human - especially in a world of VSCO, Facetune, Snapseed, whatever.
-
So regardless if you think I have a great bod, need some work, or I’m fatter/skinnier than you thought I was - this photo represents my confidence journey and how far I’ve come since my eating disorder days and my selfie-only days.
-
This photo also represents my hope that we can all carve out some time to use social media for good and share more of our true selves - whether that’s in text, a photo, a video, or whatever means.
-
If you read up until this point, thank you. I hope you found value in this post and I hope that when you scroll through the gram, you’ll know not to think that everyone has a magazine-worthy body ❤️

SELF-CARE SEPTEMBER Challenge, Day 20: “In This Moment.” Serious attitude from my Lyft driver right now. Seems he didn’t like the short wait it took for me to seatbelt myself and Fingal. Hmm, how do I apply this moment to self-care? Oh, I know! I will tell myself, “Hey, Lily, guess what? You’re a good, responsible, & conscious person. He’s just a big jerk who’s unaccustomed to womyn not cow-tailing to his looming presence.” #selfcareseptember @radicalbodylove #jerk #strongwomen #empoweredwomen #sisterhood #feminist #warrior #selfawareness #metoo #anorexiarecovery #womensmovement #selfrespect #findyourvoice #trustyourself #confidence #fightthepower #womenwholovewomen #lgbtq #support #realitycheck #keepingitreal #lovewins #growup #intimidated #threatened #guys #eatingdisorder #ptsd #ptsdawareness #eatingdisorderrecovery
