I did it! I built it! You guys coming?!?
1. You're TIRED of the way things are.
2. You KNOW how to be more useful/what you're strengths are.
3. You DECIDE you're going to use your strengths and TAKE ACTION.
4. You are COMMITTED to use your time, energy, and resources in making a difference..... no matter how small, silly, irrelevant it may seem.
5. You don't give AF what ANYBODY thinks.
6. You are a fucking WARRIOR.
Check out my recent posts and let me know if you're in to get involved in making a positive difference within the community. And stay tuned for the next beautiful gathering of light (that's you and me gang ) ___________________________________________________________
Project: Lve is a Brooklyn-based nonprofit grassroots LOVE movement focused on utilizing our space and time on this planet as usefully and thoughtfully and lovingly (of course) as possible, aiming to help ANY who need it, being a light for someone else, showing concern and care to different outlets around the neighborhood, to minimize, educate, and alleviate suffering, abuse, hunger, loneliness, etc (it's endless how we can help) creatively targeting a different theme/cause each week, and it successfully kicked off yesterday
"I don't want to be around people who judge or talk, or talk about what people do. I want to be around people who dream, support each other, and DO THINGS."
This is Greta :)
She lives on the corner of skid row with neeta, these were the first two ladies I encountered when I first landed there. Also the most helpful while looking for loi. Ever since then I always check in with the girls first before I make my rounds. Of the streets. Everytime I leave Greta always yells. I love you Raven
When life is tough and you can't stand up alone. Make sure that you stand close together with the other trees with connected roots. Let's support each other when life gets tough and hope for a better day tomorrow. #life#hope#tomorrow#eskillaago
When you love an addict, you spend a lot of time and energy hoping he or she will change. You probably put up with a lot of unacceptable behavior. The addict may steal from you, lie to you and make promises that he doesn’t keep. He or she may disappear for days on end and neglect you or other family members, including children. The person you fell in love with doesn’t seem to be there anymore. You may reach a point that you feel you can’t take it anymore and you threaten to leave. You issue the ultimate threat. Frightened. Confused. Angry. Don’t take their addiction personally. It’s not about you. They aren’t trying to hurt you. And just as you didn’t create their addiction, you can’t control or cure it. No matter how much you love them, your love cannot stop their addiction. Don’t think it can or should. They are in a deadly compulsive cycle and their perception is warped. It might help you to read books, watch documentaries and learn about addiction. Shelve the shame, The addict is already riddled with shame. They are using to blot out shame in fact of who they are, how they feel, what they’ve done. On top of that, they are ashamed that they’re using and can’t stop. The last thing they need is to be told they are a disappointment. Try to have compassion. Remember that somebody who is in active addiction is in tremendous pain and very out-of-control. You can still accept them without approving of what they’re doing.See them as a sick person, not a bad person. Don’t lose hope. The addict has lost hope. They need you to believe that they can get better because they probably don’t think they can. #love#hope#believe
I just felt like sharing this story. This man is Monty Williams an assistant coach in the NBA, last year his wife passed away in a car accident and his eulogy just speaks volumes. Even tho he's heart broken he still finds time to give prayers to the other family who lost a loved one as well. He's strong because he is a man of faith and I always say you can't avoid tragedies, that's part of life but you can either face them alone and full of fear or you can face them with Jesus by your side and full of hope🏽..... sometimes we don't understand the pain we're going through but it will work out because God causes all things to work out #wecanfindstrength#throughjesuschrist#faith#hope#prayers#godisgood
*Echoes of Nature* (that's what the title of my skecth says)
Found this sketch book while cleaning the house for Eid. Here I tried to draw what I saw while going to rubber plantation in Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Major throwback. Drew this in 2008.
Will share more embarassing sketches when I have the courage to
