  • I just woke up after smelling this weird smell, like a unique chemical smell.  I looked out the window and saw all this fire haze.  You couldn't even see the M5 just across the reserve.  Most of these fires are deliberately lit and what is the novelty of lighting a fire and watching it burn?  Fires destroy not life's, but wildlife, they destroy people's homes, and all they have. How can we reach our generation that lighting fires is not a good idea?  Do we need to change our laws?  Do we need to educate in our schools? Show them what a fire does by showing them the reality?  The problem is we are losing our humanity to care.  I mean look at what goes on online?  We have lost touch with our empathetic side to a Narcissist one.  I love photography so I whipped out my camera to show you what is going on in Australia. Photography is not just about beauty, it's about realness, the grit, what is happening in our world. They are not perfect photos and they don't have to be because they are showing a very traumatic place at the moment. If you want to Donate look for the fire appeal or for Wildlife, anything you can donate too. We are meant to get storms maybe Friday?  Though that could lead to more fires, we are so brown, when you walk on grass it crunches. I want to use my voice to bring awareness of issues. #nsw #smokehaze #firesky #firesnsw2019 #useyourvoice #photographthesky #photography #campbelltownnsw #macarthurregion #firesnsw #skyphotography #likeforlikes #likepic #likemyrecent #likephotography #sonya6000 #sonya6000📷 #sonya6000mirrorless #sonyalpha6000 #becarefuloutthere #australia #australiabushfires #letshelpeachother #nswfires

  • The amount of content on the Internet is mind-boggling. ⁣
⁣
Many content marketers are grinding out content.  They have the mindset that if they slap up enough content, the leads will come. ⁣
⁣
They end up flooding their blogs with mediocre content and their social media followers’ feeds with sub-par updates. ⁣
⁣
This all results in one thing. Content fatigue. ⁣
⁣
They fatigue their audiences as well as themselves in the process. ⁣
⁣
Focus on creating fewer but higher quality pieces. ⁣

Find the sweet spot between updating your content regularly and giving your audience time to catch their breath.

  • Putting an Economic Value on Nature meditation resource 1:

When we think about "protecting nature" or "putting a value to nature", it's important that we learn to understand the various processes that make up "nature" and their impact. How do the various parts of nature work together to make it what it is? 
In this way, we engage in a mature process of differentiation: nature is not just a "lump" concept that can be interpreted any which way in theory, but a concrete reality with many aspects whose impact we experience everyday. It's only by understanding an ecosystem's various parts and inner-systemic functions that we can interact with it in a way that is mutually beneficial. The principle that we can only truly manage and become accountable for what we track in detail applies here.

This is very similar to the issue of love vs. relational skills. You can love someone deeply, but have poor knowledge of relational skills. In the absence of those skills, which help us differentiate the myriad moving parts of a relationship and what each part requires for us to interact in a healthy way, no amount of deep love will sustain the relationship over the long term (no matter how powerfully you feel it). It may not be your fault, if you weren't raised to learn those skills, but it does become a matter of urgency to learn those differentiated relating skills in order to fully express your love and feel loved in return. This is accountability both in terms of "keeping count" of what is actually going on in the relationship, and in terms of responsibility--which means we can respond appropriately with the differentiated knowledge we have.

Whether you personally love nature or not, you are in a relationship with nature. And so, coexisting in a long-term habitable way for you and nature means thoroughly knowing the worth of what nature provides--in a concrete, rather than in an abstract way (which could then become a matter of opinion, of like or dislike, or idelogy). That's where the model and language of ecosystem services comes in. (Continued in comments)

  • This Friday, November 22nd marks the beginning of the 1st Annual Next Step Studio Campference!

This special residential program will be held at our office in Cambridge, Massachusetts and encompass everything that Song Studio, Next Step’s music therapy program, is and means for our young participants. NOT ONLY is this the first Studio Campference in Next Step’s history, it will also be the first time that we bring young people from our three communities (living with cancer, HIV, and rare genetic disorders) together at the same Next Step Campference! We are so happy to share this amazing moment in our history and for the young people we support.

What Will Happen?

This weekend, our young attendees will sleep at a hotel in Cambridge and attend the program at our office. Our young participants will not only experience the FUN that we always bring to all of our residential Campferences, they will also focus on all things music – from engaging in community building group jam-sessions to one-on-one sessions with Kimberly, our music therapist.

EVEN BETTER, our Studio Campference attendees will also work as a group with Kimberly to create a critically important advocacy video that will raise much needed awareness around the challenging issues that chronically ill young people face. With Kimberly, these young adults will create an advocacy video using music, spoken word as well as visual art. They will work as a team and have their voices heard!!! We’re very excited for the young people involved and to see what comes out of our first annual Studio Campference! Below are pictures of Kimberly and Quita staging a scene for the advocacy video in our office.

  • Today is Children’s Day! 
We take this opportunity to take a moment and think of children from all over the world and how we can help build a world in which they can grow up, free and happy. 
Here at Ritsona refugee camp,we consider that education is one of the tools to achieve that. I AM YOU opens its doors to children with these optics in mind as we consider that education is an important pillar for them. We feel privileged to be able to spend our days teaching them and learning from them.
We dedicate this publication to all the children who have passed through our preschool doors as well as to all the refugee children.

  • Haha...so as I’m taking my daughter to school cuz it’s raining (she normally takes the bus) she’s complaining because she doesn’t have an umbrella so I asked her why she didn’t get one. Then the myriad of excuses come like I don’t know where they are and almost kind of blaming me that I didn’t get one for her. And my response to her was...well I’d feel sorry if you didn’t have a voice and was unable to ask me for one. God knows she has a big enough mouth 😂.
.
Then I get onto IG and this pops up and validated everything. 😆😂
.
As I’ve always told my children...if you don’t ask, the answer is always no.
.
Big lessons for me too as I end out 2019 and enter into 2020. Sometimes asking is one of my biggest fears...afraid of what the answer might be and the judgement cast upon me. Realizing though that the only judgement being cast is my my own self and we all know now what I would say to me! 🤔 #AlwaysAsk #UseYourVoice #TheAnswerWillAlwaysBeNoIfYouDontAsk #FaceYourFears #FinishStrong #StartStrong #ALLinForMyFamily #ForThePrimeLife #GoldenMamasGotTheGoods #AskMe

I’ve shared this in the past, but it bears repeating ✨ As 2020 quickly approaches, now is the perfect time to boldly declare what we want from this forthcoming year. And once we declare it, we can begin aligning our actions with it. For example, if you want a promotion at work, you’ve got to ask for it. Plain and simple. And then you’ve got to start showing up as the woman who already has that new title. Make yourself undeniable. Become irreplaceable. Do all things with passion. And watch the universe line up to support you in every single way. 🖤

  • Can I just tell you real quick how scary it is to jump out of a 14 year career where I was established and comfortable and successful, into a space where I'm new and unfamiliar and uncertain? I retired from my fitness career this summer and I've had to grieve that. I loved my work for many years and I was an absolute #boss as a fitness professional. #askaboutme 😎 So to now shift gears at age 42 and decide to follow my heart into the unknown and follow my joy and follow my calling to use my voice in a completely different way, is fucking terrifying every day. But...I've made this deal with #fear and we've decided that my path and my purpose has been made clear so fear is just going to have to come along for the ride. The #truth is that the fear is real and the fear is there, but it can't stop me because I won't let it. So I will do whatever it takes (pray, meditate, do yoga, light incense, talk to my ancestors, go to therapy, cry, scream, cuss, fall down, get back up, make mistakes, get told no, believe, dream, create and so on and so forth) for as long as it takes, because I didn't choose this work, this work chose me. So I am just going to do it afraid. And I remember how hard I used to hustle when I worked for 'corporate.' I remember how many hours, blood, sweat and tears I put in when I worked for a corporation, when I worked for someone else to build up their dreams and to invest in their empire. So I will damn sure #hustleharder for my own damn self. I just needed to #affirm myself today y'all. So on this day, I am my own damn #wcw 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 Wait, today is Wednesday right? 😂😂😂 #doitafraid #hellofear #quityourjob #workforyourself #jump2017 #everythingyouwantisontheothersideoffear #findyourvoice #useyourvoice #builtfromscratch #beginagain #startingover #useyourvoice #watchme #ican #iwill #hustlehard #blackgirlmagic #legacy

  • guys christmas is coming so let’s all do this 4 week challenge !! I might even cut out saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ too hehe !! Who’s with me ??⁠⠀
⁠⠀
(Jokes aside….)⁠⠀
A little PSA about these kind of infographics which tend to plague the explore feed:⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Being ‘healthy’ or making a positive change to your diet doesn’t need to mean cutting out anything that takes vaguely nice out of your diet. It doesn’t.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I know it’s not as SHOCKING, WILD or appropriate for red emoji crosses.⁠⠀
But sugar is not inherently bad !⁠⠀
Carbs are not inherently bad !⁠⠀
Soda is not inherently bad !⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Each and everyone one of those things can be a part of your life,⁠⠀
alongside a load of other cool things like fruits, vegetables and whole foods.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Let’s stop demonising single foods.⁠⠀
And view our diet as one big party of shit that’s good for the body and good for the soul.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So, anyway.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Back to the joke.⁠⠀
⁠⠀

  • If you grew up in a home where you stayed silent to prevent angering people or feeling like a burden, you might exhibit these same behaviors in adult relationships.

In childhood, it helped to stay silent. You didn’t rock the boat which made things easier, so all was good. That doesn’t work in adulthood. It doesn’t allow us to grow, feel heard or develop trust.

It’s rather common to go over scenarios in your head and rehearse what you’re going to say and then.... stay silent. Maybe you’re afraid of your reaction or rage. Maybe you’re afraid to piss someone off. Maybe you feel like you won’t be heard or understood, leaving you feeling insecure or worthless. No matter the case, you can approach difficult topics. YOU CAN!

Are you afraid of conflict? Do you push your own needs aside because you worry about your reaction? Do you end up feeling resentment towards a partner, a friend or a family member? You’re not alone. Check back for a follow up post on how to start using your voice. 🖤

  • Gestern habe ich in meinen Storys über die Sexualisierung des Reitsports gesprochen und durfte später auch auf dem Account vom @jugendteamsachsenanhalt über den Umgang als Jugendlicher mit reitsportspeziefischer Diskriminierung/Sexualisierung sprechen. Wer es nicht gesehen hat findet die komplette Geschichte in meinen Highlights unter #uyvequestrian ✨ Ich habe gehofft ein paar Menschen zum Umdenken zu bewegen oder zu ermutigen diese Themen nicht länger stillschweigend hinzunehmen. Aber mit euren Reaktionen habe ich in dem Umpfang nicht gerechnet. DAS WAR EINFACH NUR KRASS! Mich haben unzählige Nachrichten erreicht in denen ihr mir eure Geschichten erzählt habt. 🙏🏻 Da diese Themen unglaublich umpfangreich sind , ist noch lange nicht alles gesagt. Das soll sich nun ändern ! Ich möchte euch bitten eure Stimmen zu benutzen. Teilt eure Meinungen und Erfahrungen zu den Themen in eurer Story oder einem Beitrag. Dabei spielt es keine Rolle ob ihr eure Geschichten erzählt , Erlebnisse teilt oder einfach nur über die Themen philosophiert. Du kannst schreiben/erzählen was du möchtest. Wichtig ist nur , dass wir anfangen offen mit diesen Problemen umzugehen. Nutzt #uyvequestrian & markiert uns damit wir euch finden und teilen können. Unser Sport definiert unseren Lebensstil und lässt uns Teil einer großartigen und vielseitigen Welt sein. Diese Welt verlangt uns aber auch viel ab. Wir investieren alles.Nur weil Außenstehende das oft nicht verstehen können , haben sie nicht das Recht uns dafür zu diskriminieren oder den Sport zu sexualisieren. Wir betreiben die einzige olympische Sportart , in der Männer und Frauen gleichberechtigt gegeneinander antreten. Wir arbeiten mit einem 600kg schweren Tier mit eigenem Willen zusammen , kommunizieren dabei ohne Worte und lieben es so sehr das es fast weh tut. Aus diesen und vielen anderen Gründen können wir stolz sein Reitsportler zu sein. Wir und auch unsere Pferde verdienen genauso viel Respekt wie Athleten anderer Sportarten auch. Es ist schwer alleine in einem ”Raum“ mit Außenstehenden, die eigene Meinung zu vertreten. Aber wir sind nicht allein.Ihre Stimmen sind laut. Wir können lauter sein !#uyvequestrian#useyourvoice

  • LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK! Look, our brains are going to do some funky stuff like try and convince us that we don't belong on the same level as mothers, but the ONLY reason we feel that way is because mom's have created a majority platform to successfully toot their own horn when they accomplish something glorious. This is incredible. But what about everyone else?
.
What about YOU, babe? 
What amazing accomplishments do you need to pipe up and start talking about? 
What did YOU create? 
What did YOU nurture? 
What did YOU mother in your own, amazingly unique way? .
So your reproductive system crapped out. SO. WHAT? Women are SO MUCH MORE than those uncontrollable limits. .
Time to use your voice and MAKE. YOURSELF. HEARD. .

  • guys christmas is coming so let’s all do this 4 week challenge !! I might even cut out saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ too hehe !! Who’s with me ??⁠⠀
⁠⠀
(Jokes aside….)⁠⠀
A little PSA about these kind of infographics which tend to plague the explore feed:⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Being ‘healthy’ or making a positive change to your diet doesn’t need to mean cutting out anything that takes vaguely nice out of your diet. It doesn’t.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I know it’s not as SHOCKING, WILD or appropriate for red emoji crosses.⁠⠀
But sugar is not inherently bad !⁠⠀
Carbs are not inherently bad !⁠⠀
Soda is not inherently bad !⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Each and everyone one of those things can be a part of your life,⁠⠀
alongside a load of other cool things like fruits, vegetables and whole foods.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Let’s stop demonising single foods.⁠⠀
And view our diet as one big party of shit that’s good for the body and good for the soul.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So, anyway.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Back to the joke.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
sO wHo WanTs tO bE My ACCOuntaBilitY PartNeR ?!⁠⠀

  • Being open and honest about how you feel can set you free. So often we hold ourselves back from communicating our real feelings because of fear of rejection or not being heard.  Some may even have the experience of being laughed at or not taken for granted.  The truth is that your feelings matter and they are important. They are a guide and gauge of your intuition, reality and truth and learning to express them in a positive way can change the course of your life.  If your not feeling heard or are surrounded by people who don’t listen, the universe is tell you it’s time for a change.  Choose to surround your self with people that love, support and listen to you and in turn do the same for them. Life is too short to have it any other way.
