Here's to 2019. Here's to us for making it till the end.


Here's to another year that changed us. here's to another year that stresses us out left, right and center. here's to another year that helped us grow, let us fall and let us stand back up again. here's to another full year of struggles, full of pain, full of growth. here's to another year you thought you couldn't pull through, but look at you, all fit and fine. healthy and wise. smarter and mature. here's to another year that threw the toughest and strongest of stones at us, but here we are getting through them. here's to 2019 that is coming to an end. and here's to us, us who made it till the end when we thought we couldn't. here's to us, who thought we fell off the edge and couldn't make it up again. here's to us, who pulled through and will always, pull through.

-s.m. / here's to 2019. here's to us making it till the end.

Who are you?



Who are you? 

Who do you think  you are? Why do you think that way of yourself? Did someone tell you that's what you, or did you decide for yourself? When did you decide that? As you explore these questions, you may realise that you've been living under certain arbitrary beliefs that don't mean anything. The truth is that you have the right to change. You can evolve into something totally different. Don't let your current view of yourself dictate your whole life. that back control and make the changes you want to see. You have the power.

Discarded coconuts can save ENTIRE FORESTS!

From: @get.waste.ed

Coconuts are a beloved snack all over the world, and we all know their oil is πŸ’―, but their outer shell is often disposed of in favor of the fruit inside. Michiel Vos has invented a way to use all of those discarded coconut husks to make shipping pallets that could save 200 million trees a year!

Coconut husks are a viable and more sustainable alternative to timber, which is used to produce 1.7 billion wood pallets every year in Asia. Vos is the founder behind CocoPallets, a company that produces pallets that are 100% biodegradable and prevent deforestation by saving trees typically cut down to produce traditional wood ones.

Using coconuts incentivizes the reduction of coconut waste by creating extra income for farmers who grow them, while also reducing air pollution caused when the husks are burned. Coconut pallets also eliminate the need to ship timber overseas to Asia where the pallets are produced. The finished product is fire-resistant, more durable, and even cheaper than traditional wood pallets!

"I don't always spray pesticide,..."

From: @foodsciencebabe

This series of tweets about stock photos used in those “Roundup Claims” ads πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ .

But seriously, stock photos are ridiculous, especially those pertaining to farming and biotechnology.

This guy is wearing no personal protective equipment (PPE), looks like he’s literally spraying his arm and is spraying TOMATO PLANTS. Roundup would kill tomato plants 🀣 .

SO MUCH NONSENSE .

This work is by Janina Fisher and it’s the work my own therapist has been been using with me since the beginning. It has played a HUGE role on my understanding of the journey.
