Trump leaves Obama out in the cold in SA. The pettiness of Trump and his enablers continues to amaze me. I just learned that when Obama went to South Africa this week to deliver a speech on the occasion of what would be Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday, the Trump administration ordered that the U.S. embassy there not give Obama any assistance other than security – a break from the diplomatic tradition of offering full support to any visiting American leader regardless of party affiliation. - Robert Reich

SIMPLIFYING CHILDHOOD MAY PROTECT AGAINST MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES "Childhood serves a very real purpose. It’s not something to “get through”. It’s there to protect and develop young minds so they can grow into healthy and happy adults. When society messes too much with childhood, young brains react. By providing a sense of balance and actively protecting childhood we’re giving our children the greatest gift they’ll ever receive."

“One of the things that commends travel, art, nature, work, and certain drugs to us is the way these experiences, at their best, block every mental path forward and back, immersing us in the flow of a present that is literally wonderful—wonder being the by-product of precisely the kind of unencumbered first sight, or virginal noticing, to which the adult brain has closed itself. (It’s so inefficient!)” - Michael Pollan

The less you respond to rude, critical, argumentative people, the more peaceful your life will become. Have faith in your journey. Everything had to happen exactly as it did to get you where you're going next. Some people pass through your lives for a season to teach us lessons that could never be learned if they stayed. When you fight to cling to people who are no longer meant to be in your life, you delay your destiny. Let them go. You don't always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go and see what happens. Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don't belong. Just be yourself. Let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful, magical person that you are. It's not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It's necessary. Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is. Ten years from now, make sure you can say that you chose your life, your didn't settle for it. You don't have to defend or explain your decisions to anyone. It's your life. Live it without apologies. - Mandy Hale

When thinking about life, remember this:
1. No amount of guilt can change the past.
2. NO amount of anxiety can change the future. - unknown

If one door closes, quit trying to open it.
If it's locked, quit banging on it trying to get back in.
Door closes for a reason.
Sometimes they reopen, but most of the time they are meant to stay closed.
Some doors are no longer meant for you.
Move forward today leaving the past behind you.
Look forward to the next door that is opening for you.

There is nothing in the world that can trouble you as much as your own thought.
You will never really be free until you free yourself from the prison of your own thoughts.
You've have been criticizing yourself for years...and it hasn't it's time to try to approving of yourself and see what happens.
It's time to stop worrying about what can go wrong and get excited about what can go right.
And don't ruin today by thinking about yesterday. Just let it go.
Try to stop those anxious thoughts in their tracks.. and replace them with calming words..
It's all going to be okay.
I can do this
Life is amazing
And remember .. everything will be okay in the end..
and if it's not okay, it's not the end. - unknown
There's not one person walking this earth that is worth you laying awake at night feeling like you're not good enough. - unknown

No, I didn't change. i just remembered who I really was. This isn't a temporary phase. I worked hard to find me. I sifted through layers and layers of bullshit stories I have been told about who I should be and finally became who I was meant to be. Get used to it or don't. This is me and I am not going back. - Donna

What is intimacy for you?

Intimacy is not who you let touch you.
Intimacy is who you text at 3 AM about your dreams and fears.
Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it.
Intimacy is the person, always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are. - unknown

This Is How Vladimir Putin Manufactures Conflict Between Nations If international scholars and observers are to be believed, America is far from the first country to be in Russian sights. The Russian methodology of Provokatsiya can be traced across the globe. "Provokatsiya simply means taking control of your enemies in secret and encouraging them to do things that discredit them and help you. You plant your own agents provocateurs and flip legitimate activists, turning them to your side. When you’re dealing with extremists to start with, getting them to do crazy, self-defeating things isn’t often difficult. In some cases, you simply create extremists and terrorists where they don’t exist. This is causing problems in order to solve them, and since the Tsarist period, Russian intelligence has been known to do just that."
