Love is more powerful than prejudices. It exceeds boundaries like the depths of the ocean exceeds our gaze. Love does not need an outside opinion to emphasise its existence, for its own voice speaks clearer than thunder.
This evening I was looking at some pictures of a who friend passed away a week ago today. We struck up an unexpected friendship over the last few years while visiting his Seniors Residence on Friday evenings. We got to talking and realized we both shared a passion for fitness and bodybuilding. This gentleman and I had a lot in common. He even took me to the gym a couple of times to show me some power lifting tips and tricks. Back in the day he was one of the top bodybuilders in Poland and a powerlifting coach for Olympic athletes. Muscle and Fitness Poland even did a two-page spread on his career about three years ago. It was great to chat him and hear his stories. We even shared a love of dogs. I would take my dog Barney to see him. And he loved it. He would show me pictures of his favorite dog, a husky he had. He even held on to his dog's favorite toy for over 16 years. One evening he came downstairs to the common area and gave it to my dog Barney. It was a stuffed turkey period and that was a huge gift for him to give away to my dog. I went to see him last Tuesday night. I just held his hand and told him try not to talk. He was having so much trouble breathing he couldn't talk. I found out he passed early Wednesday morning. I am so glad I listened to my instinct to go visit him Tuesday evening. I just wanted to share a few good memories and pictures. #inmemory#unexpectedfriendship#bodybuilder#antonikolecki#friends#kindness#fitfam#bodybuilder#olympiclifting#bodybuilding#classicbodybuilding
You have the sweetest, funniest, personality my baby. You are so empathetic and kind. You spend your days trying to make people laugh. Thank you for being you, you remind me there is purity in life, and encourage me to be the best version of myself, without even knowing it. We all need to take a leaf out of our children's book sometimes. Kindness is free. Happiness is golden. #mummyandson#family#happiness#kindness
#wordsofwisdomwednesday prior to today, the past few days I found myself emotionally eating for various reasons at various times because of something someone said, or did or the way they acted. These people aren't going to change, but I can change how I choose to react to their toxicity. One of my sons saw this and said "Mom is that what they call emotional eating?" "Yes, yes it is I told him." He then said ""Oh well you need to get them out of your life so they don't make you do that then." "No I said, they don't make me do anything. I need to learn to be responsible for my own actions and reactions. I need to find better ways to deal with things." I told him.... There is always going to be a toxic person, or bully in our life at some point or another. Or a time when things don't go our way. How we chose to react to it is our responsibility, because the person our actions are going to affect the most are ours alone. We are worth so much more than we realize. #selflove#believe#nevergiveup#emotionaleating#love#forgiveness#peace#kindness#bekind#youareworthit
YSTO! StarTalk - Fast and furious.
I never enjoyed Snapchat. I knew it since the beggining they wouldn't go that far.
Just because of the management and the mistake in not selling for U$40bi. Zuckerberg has an empire and he will keep growing, because of the great service, quality in his management and team. We should abandon the ego when we achieve a higher standard. Then, we should go back to our society and create more solutions, charity and so forth.
I think Snap wasn't going that good because of vanity and ego. Lesson learned.
I am also creating a new social media. But I will launch only when I start physical units. Creating a social media in Brazil isn't easy at all, because of our laws and taxes.
So, I created a plan and strategy for the long-term. Just keep calm and working towards the main goals.
I often wonder "how did I get so lucky" I have amazing friends and their hearts are sooo big. Thank you Jodie for the invite for tonight's event. Sending so much love in those duffle bags to those sweet souls going into new foster homes. * Jodie and her son, The Awesome Mr. T, raised awareness for @togetherwerise a wonderful organization that provides a heart full of love, coupled with a slice of dignity to children in the foster care system. Most children do not have anything as they move from one place to another and often their belongings are put in a trash bag and used as luggage. Each brand new duffle bag we decorated was filled with a personal hand written love note, a teddy bear, a blanket, a t-shirt, toiletries, 2 coloring books and crayons. I learned a lot and met some great people. Forever grateful. Go to www.togetherwerise.org for more information - donate, spread the word, get involved.

Meet Henry Raymond:
We asked his mom how Henry lives this "Kind Is The New Cool" shirt, and she told us: "He is seriously the kindest human. He helps feed his baby brother and burp him, gives us bites of his food, shares his stickers, helps clean, loves to hug animals (stuffed and real), and he is quick to give out kisses and "I love yous!" It sounds like he found the perfect shirt, as Henry continues to live his values out loud! Thank you @angelamdaniels for sharing and allowing Henry to inspire our #Uniteekids
Your kindness lights up our lives as bright as the candles on your cake..May you grow to become the Queen of many hearts
We live in a small town, with all the conveniences (mini markets, a post office, service station, a crêpe and pizza place) and inconveniences (noisy neighbours, heavy traffic, lots of dust), but sometimes it feels like living in the countryside. There are cows grazing on what was supposed to be a football field. They often wander the streets too. Our neighbour across the street keeps goats. He lets them out in the morning and they usually end up grazing outside our kitchen (can be difficult to work from home, because they can be terribly noisy). Most people have chickens and ducks (also wandering the streets) and the neighbour (and mr Merrythought's friend), the Rastaman (I have no idea what his name is, he's always referred to as the Rastaman) has a pony in his garden. And keeps bees. He gave us some delicious fresh honey the other day!
