Two years ago today, I left for Mayo Clinc in search of answers my GI could not give me. I was so full of hope that everything would be solved and I would get some answers as to why I was such a "complicated case". It's two years later, and while I've made progress, there are still new revelations that are keeping us on our toes, and welcoming the bits and pieces helping put the puzzle together. In these two years, I see that experience was a turning point in what I knew I needed as a patient. I'm stronger, more assertive with medical practitioners, and determined to keep moving forward. I will always advocate, I will always lend my voice, and I will always try to be the best version of myself through the peaks and valleys. 💪🏻💜 #keepmovingforward#stayvigilant#mayomiss#Crohns#ehlersdanlos#EDS#awareness#fighton#operationremission#invisibleillness#autoimmune#chronicillness#IBD#MALS#notgoingback
Hands up high
So the shots won't fly;
Prayin' every child on the block Won't die!
Target on their back
Like dey under attack!
Got they Iphone 5 so
The cops don't lie;
Fighting for the country but the streets got war; Every brother in school prison Got 4!
Why they think we out here?! Selling out tours?! Rocking with the world
Tryina settle that score;
I Can't take it no more!
Freedom is torn
More Devils have
spawned ; On another level
When evil is born;
Dust start to settle
When evil is gone;
Birds eye view when they
Course the drones;
increase the hate

i'll keep this short. i just want to say that, a big reason why i bother with this Instagram page or my website, is because too many of us feel like this. i've been there. and i know many, many, many people who feel this way too. and it's ugly and terrifying. i know what it feels like to be thrown a hotline and have someone repeat the wrong things. most of the time with genuine intentions, but damn it doesn't help. and let's be real *i do not have answers*. there is no right way to feel or to cope, or to be. there is no magical cure. pain is real and it doesn't matter how you got to where you are- the point is you are in a place where you are hurting now. there is no promise that what i have to say will help, but regardless you deserve
▪️to be listened to
▪️to be cared for
▪️to be understood
it truly breaks my heart that so many people feel hopeless. i wish i could carry the weight for you and help you on your journey, i really do. what i can do is share what has gotten me through the ugliest of times. and i refuse to lie, or to promote bullshit. everything i post is from my lived experience. what i've come to understand: surviving takes work. and it's not glamorous. and it is a hell of a journey. but it's worth it. you are worth it. and if you're not feeling to good rn, visit the website to read something I wrote under this photo that I hope uplifts your soul. i'm now realizing this wasn't short at all. but that's okay. wherever you are i'm sending warmth your way 💕 .
✨Yikes got mad as fuck yesterday & it's been a while since my ass has been legitimately mad to the point where I lose my shit, & it takes a lot for my double water sign ass to get mad cuz I'm a pretty calm & chill person (Sun in Cancer & Moon in Pisces).✨
✨I'd like to think I'm put here on this earthy Earth to shed light onto the areas of ourselves & our lives that we don't like to talk about. ✨
✨ Shadow selves, negative nelly bullshit, whatever you wanna call the things about yourself you don't like & would rather not be, I'm here to call you out on it by calling myself out & sharing my experiences openly.✨
✨Keep in mind that this was a part of my spiritual growth/awakening/journey or whatever the fuck you wanna call it, not the beginning.✨
✨There was a point in my life where I was extremely angry, at myself, my relationships & the world around me. Like "fuck I can't do anything right" or I'd blame others like "YOU are fucking retarded" (yes I know, terrible terrible language) & obviously "fuck the system" type bullshit.✨
✨The reason I was "mad" was because it was a mask to hide my sadness. I was truly upset with myself in general, but I didn't wanna deal with the sadness & depression that was longing to come out.✨
✨One day I was legit super fucking tired of being angry all the time. I was literally using up so much time & energy putting on a fake ass front for months, just to purposely push away that deep sadness within me.✨
✨ It took some time but with the help of self help/Buddhist books, meditation, eating healthier & lifting weights, I was able to deal with my negative emotions/anger & express my feelings more effectively/productively. ✨
✨I've been really good at dealing with my own bullshit since, a lot of self-reflection, crying & healing on a regular basis. But yesterday I fucked up in that I wasn't being mindful & was reverting back to the old me.✨
✨ But that's okay. I'm human & nowhere near perfect. I am continuously evolving & changing & learning from my experiences. ✨
✨If you're in a place that feels like shit, know that this is just a part of your journey to becoming the beautiful soul you already are.✨
19 days... You gain a bit of comfort, sanity, and belonging when you read someone else's words that so accurately describe exactly how you feel or have felt.
It leaves the same hidden mark deep within the pupils of your eyes. Only those that have lived the same story can see it. But those that care to listen, can surely try to understand.

Hello friends 😊 we have our first pivot! Our name is changing to B l u e h o m e. 💙
The name B l u e h o m e was being used for the first series of #T-shirt designs, but I have come to realise it encompasses everything we stand for. 🌎 We live on a #blueplanet, a predominantly #ocean based home, which we desperately need to reconnect people with. .
B l u e h o m e; Connecting communities with our ocean through sharing #inspiration and #awareness. .
We aim to bring real #conservation issues to local community attention and provide easy and measurable methods to support. 😁🌊👏
Right now we have a limited edition series of eco T-shirts 👕, hand designed with love, to spread positive conservation messages and a direct method to give back to local non-profit projects. 💬💕
➡Watch this space!! Presales are limited. ✌🐳🌴
Happy days 😊
What a wonderful sentiment, don't you agree? The Earth provides so much for us, no wonder some call it Mother Earth. You would kiss your human mother, why not the Earth? Do you think it would have no effect? Studies have shown plants, water, etc. respond at an atomic level to words, emotions and even thoughts. All create vibrations that affect the frequency of everything around us, just as everything affects us.
We are intertwined, all creation is symbiotic, everything is connected.
Try thinking, I am kissing the Earth, each time you take a step for a week. Feel the emotion of a kiss given to the Earth each time you do it. See how much it changes your awareness and reality.
If you want more love in your life this is one way to do it. The relationship between humanity and the Earth is one of love. But just as any relationship, we must be aware it exists and interact in order to benefit from it.
Let me know if you love this quote, as I do.
It’s #TBT again! Tag us in your past Conscious Life Expo photos for a chance to be featured on our Instagram profile! @highchienergy

#FlagFootBallu14- This is a great announcement and we are in full support. We will always endorse and support organizations that educate and promote playing all sports #SaferAndSmarter. The game has evolved. The only way to protect against the chances of #CTE is to reduce hits to the head. Quality of life after the game matters most. #ProtectYourSkull#Repost@concussionfoundation with @get_repost
BIG NEWS: We have launched Flag Football Under 14, a program to educate parents on the benefits of waiting to enroll their child in tackle football until age 14. The program is based on a decade of mounting evidence that the repetitive hits of youth tackle football risk the long-term consequences of a child’s development.

Quote from an upcoming article about the impact your thoughts have on your health! The purpose of the body is house the mind and spirit - the real you. In order for the real you to grow and thrive, the body must be healthy, running on all cylinders. Your body is a good listener. It hears your thoughts and responds accordingly. When you live and think in an unhealthy way, the body feels the effect. Thoughts start as energy and eventually express themselves on the physical plane, manifested into reality. Mental maintenance is generally reflected in physical maintenance of your health.

Yesterday I learned about the Pallas’s cat, another cat species I never knew existed in far far away land, Mongolia.
1. Their body are not used to running but they can flatten their bodies to the ground to look like rock while hunting.
2. They are amazing beautiful and too adorable I feel like squeezing them!
3. Okay, most importantly they are endangered species as they adjust lives according to the changes in our lives.
So please share what you know.
