Thoughts on “PRIDE” Month.

I think it’s super weird we are all celebrating pride for things we didn’t do and have no control over.

On the scale of consciousness/truth PRIDE is lower on the spectrum than acceptance. Want to move higher on the vibrational scale? Start living what you mean, not the advertised and publicized version……………

Body Positivity and Fat Shaming โ€“ Falsehoods That Need to Be Ripped Apart for Your Own Good

There is a growing trend in media and social that says that if you donโ€™t agree that someone is at their best when they are overweight suddenly you are a fat-shaming bigot who doesnโ€™t accept people.

This is a huge load of crap.

Body positivity started out as a wonderful concept. Acceptance of the self as you are, where you are, in the now. Absolutely always love and accept yourself. You are unique and cannot be compared against anyone but other versions of yourself. BUT โ€“ This does not mean that you should be complacent and fall into the trap of comfortability and not work on yourself. That goes for emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical.

We are ALL works in progress โ€“ never completed and never done. Individual masterpieces.

Carrying extra weight has become normalized but it isnโ€™t healthy. It doesnโ€™t mean that person is lazy, or even fat. It means they have to carry around excess body fat which weighs down the body. It is more difficult for every single organ in the body to work at its peak and it is hard on and detrimental to your health. The same can apply for being underweight if the reason is eating disorder based or rooted in other ill health.

Be whatever you want to be, by all means. But donโ€™t lie to yourself and think that being overweight or obese is good for you or a positive thing. Nor should you expect others to play pretend with you.

As we all grow older health becomes a focal point. If you donโ€™t take care of yourself when you are younger, I am telling you โ€“ you are setting yourself up for potentially a lot of suffering down the road.

Hear me
Donโ€™t hear me
Either is ok, I have said my peace.

How Do You Love?

๐Ÿ’™

You cannot expect others to love the same way you do.

People can only love from their perspective and from what they have experienced.

The only way to teach love is to show it.

To lead by example.

Treat people with kindness, compassion, and acceptance.

Treat others the way you would like to be treated.

Many were not brought up with good examples of what love is, especially unconditional love.

We must lead by example. โค

How to come from a place of abundance when you have nothing

Article originally Published for : Alberta Street News

โ€œThe true measure of a man is how much he would be worth if he lost everything.โ€ โ€“ Unknown.

Your worth and value doesnโ€™t come from the car you drive, what you have or where you live. It is inherent, intrinsic, and cannot be taken from you. It is reflected in your character, the way you live your life and the way you treat other people.

I have seen numerous YouTube videos lately where events are staged to look like someone is out on the street and down on their luck or having a hard time where they really need some help out in public. I have been highly disappointed in the vast majority who just walk on by, ignoring them, even when the person has been face down in the middle of a busy sidewalk.

Many of the bystanders who actually do come to the aid of that person have been homeless themselves and have the very least to give (monetarily). What does this say about our society?

Have many of us become so jaded that we canโ€™t see what is right in front of us; our fellow human beings in need of help. Is it that we donโ€™t care? Donโ€™t feel one person can make a difference? I donโ€™t really have an answer for that.

What I do know is that we are all connected. Treating someone as if they do not matter is unacceptable. Everyone matters. We need to stop judging on appearance. Look past the surface; clothing, hair, skin color, or whatever it is that is keeping us back from looking into that persons eyes and seeing another living breathing human being.

This is a two-sided coin.

 

On the other side of that, how do you deal with people when you donโ€™t have a place to call home or sometimes even food to eat? Feeling badly or ashamed of your situation or worse about yourself, wonโ€™t help things. Our current situations in life are always an echo. They are a combination manifestation of our past thoughts, actions and happenstance. Dwelling on it will likely push that echo on to the future and get you more of the same.

Breaking free of this cycle isnโ€™t an easy thing to do, for any of us, and being in a bad situation currently does make it harder so please donโ€™t think I am discounting that.

Acceptance of where you are now is the first step because the fact is โ€“ you are where you are regardless of what you think or how you feel about it. Take a good look around you. Life is all about perspective no matter what you do or donโ€™t have. Rich or poor. They both are a state of mind that projects outwardly and into your reality. Take stock of what you do have that is good in your life. Friends, Family, a pet, a nice place to rest, a sunny day, anything that brings even the slightest joy to your life. Focus on that which makes you feel good or even a little bit better. Do your best to ignore the rest. The truth is that when you live in gratitude for what you already have, however perceived little it may be, more will come into your life to be grateful for.

All of us are infinitely valuable, more so than we realize. We all individually have the power to touch someoneโ€™s life. Make sure you do so in a positive way, even if itโ€™s just with a smile or kind word.
