Today I am teaming up with an amazing company to let you in on how you can help a child in need make their holiday season a little brighter this year. @exelencebrillianceindesign has teamed up with two organizations (SAFE emergency and OasisNJ) who donate stuffed animals to children who are currently being hospitalized and mother and children in need of help. With each purchase of a “GIVE A TEDDY” tshirt, @exelencebrillianceindesign will donate a bear to these organizations. If you can’t make the purchase now, please at least share this to your story to help get the message out! They made it their mission to create these high quality shirts to be able to offer these children brand new teddy bears. If you want to help make a difference in this world, all you need to do is go to @exelencebrillianceindesign page or my page to find the link to the site to make your purchase. In a society of high consumerism, we need people who also have a heart to give back to those who cannot get something as simple as a toy for themselves or their children. I hope you all highly consider the value you can add to yourself and others by this act of kindness. I am so thankful to be able to help spread this message to you all. If you can’t make a purchase, please at least share this post to you story to help get the message out! Thank you, and I hope you give a teddy, too 💗 🐻
The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom. Osho 📷: @voja_world
☽ •𝓜𝓸𝓸𝓷 𝓒𝓱𝓲𝓵𝓭• ☾ So, I’m 4 months into 30 and I cannot believe quite how transitional it’s been already! I think I always had a private, personal goal to resolve my most undesirable habits and harmful behaviour patterns by this age. But what I hadn’t even began to consider was how it would impact my relationships in such a positive way. There are 7 years between Pascal & I, and since floating into this new decade I feel closer to him than ever. We are both constantly changing (just like everybody else!) so when we “meet again” like this on the exact same page, it’s just the most wonderful feeling! One of the surprising things for me was music... 5 or so years ago Pasc showed me a few songs by Frank Turner & I dismissed them. Despite also being British & the message being close to my heart, I just didn’t vibe with something... Then last week one came on shuffle whilst I was at the gym and I frickin’ LOVED it. So I listened to the others Pascal had tried to get me hooked on & realised they were all about travel, adventure and most poignantly, coming of age. (More details of lyrics & songs in the comments below). I find it so interesting how close to 30 Turner was when he released the songs, Pascal was when he showed me them AND I am now, singing along 🎶 . And that’s the thing about good song writing that’s so bloody impressive! Speaking to the masses in a transformational period & remaining relevant. #gettingold#30#travel#africa#tanzania#bohemian#island#paradise
“The house is getting very comfortable now. Sean is beautiful. The plants are growing. The cats are purring. The town is shining, sun, rain or snow. We live in a beautiful universe. We are thankful every day for the plentifulness of our life. This is not a euphemism. We understand that we, the city, the country, the earth are facing very hard times, and there is panic in the air. Still the sun is shining and we are here together, and there is love between us, our city, the country, the earth. If two people like us can do what we are doing with our lives, any miracle is possible! It's true we can do with a few big miracles right now. The thing is to recognize them when they come to you and to be thankful. First they come in a small way, in every day life, then they come in rivers, and in oceans. It's goin' to be alright! The future of the earth is up to all of us.” ❤️❤️❤️ — An extract written by John and Yoko from ‘A Love Letter From John And Yoko To People Who Ask Us What, When And Why’, published in May 1979 in all major newspaper in New York, London and Tokyo.
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Proud Mary.In the beginning, "Proud Mary" had nothing to do with a riverboat. Instead, John Fogerty envisioned it as the story of a woman who works as a maid for rich people. "She gets off the bus every morning and goes to work and holds their lives together," he explained. "Then she has to go home." It was Stu Cook who first introduced the riverboat aspect of the song. The idea came to him as the group watched the television show Maverick and Stu made the statement, "Hey riverboat, blow your bell." John agreed that the boat seemed to have something to do with the song that had been brewing in his mind for quite some time, waiting to take conscious shape. When he wrote the music, he made the first few chords evoke a riverboat paddlewheel going around. Thus, "Proud Mary" went from being a cleanup lady to a boat.
