Sarah’s gratitude for life is so impactful. She is someone who sees the little things in people, and can stare fear in the face when things get shitty.
After meeting Sarah, i wondered if the gratitude we find in the small things might help build the resilience needed to get back up after life kicks you in the face.
All in all, this girl is incredible, and I look forward to you getting to know her a bit.
▫️▫️Meet Sarah▫️▫️ “One of my long-held philosophies is ‘Holy is any place where it’s safe to tell your story. Holy is any place that creates justice.’ It is sacred to reach into your soul and share your story with a stranger. There’s something magical about strangers becoming friends.” -Sarah

Who else gets panic attacks? 🙋🏼♀️ #Repost @ashleykaiser_endoadvocate
Oh I'll have to read up on panic attacks and endometrial pain! So so true in my case! #panicattacks
I fought extremely hard to overcome. Attacks that ruined my life. The hardest thing I ever overcame was panic attacks and anxiety. It's hard not to when you know something's wrong and nobody believes you for 15 damn years. #endometriosis

Restorative yoga and a variation of different meditations have really helped my depression, anxiety, fears around living with chronic pain and invisible illnesses but still I had problems dealing with everyday stress when I was not physically practicing.
Suddenly two beautiful souls stumbled into my path. They were @alexishannagan
& her brother @yogicurt
who run @yogameditationsound
in Sydney, Australia.
I started connecting with Alexis more and more and could see and hear her appraisals for kundalini. I started dabbling into the practices. Once I committed to the online classes that they hold I learnt about the profound impact of kundalini and this was the beginning of my healing journey to recovery. All of a sudden I really knew myself for what felt like forever. Kundalini has been me able to lift me up where restorative and meditation could not. Since the first class I have learnt even more about the beautiful mantras, mudras helping me peel more layers of me that for so long kept me listless and in pain and suffering.
Kundalini has changed my life and in doing so has brought me to an intuitive calling to show more of what kundalini can do to help each and everyone of us that live with chronic pain and invisible illness.

Going to his first Parent/teacher interview this afternoon. We’ll get a good snapshot of how’s he’s traveling and if having to be removed from the classroom most days when it’s very hot has impacted his learning.

My little man suffers from mental illness and as hard as it can be at times, I am grateful for the gift he has given me. He has opened my eyes to a world that is more bright, colourful and adventurous! He has taught me patience, flexibility, creative communication and most importantly a new confidence in my voice to advocate for him. With his mental illness comes little quirks that warm my heart! He finds comfort in tight spaces and soft fuzzy blankets or teddies. I usually find him hiding in his bed under at least four blankets and every last teddy he has, but last night I found him tucked in a small Rubbermaid container with his favourite blankets and it made me smile in awe to see him so comfy in something I’d find uncomfortable. I really need to save up and get this boy a weighted blanket! #asd #adhd #anxiety #ocd #sensory #comfort #littleman #mylove #mylife #mentalhealth #mentalillness #advocate #awareness #momlife #cutenessoverload #5yearsold #blackandwhite #autisim

Given my Cerebral Palsy, I feel as though I have to overcome obstacles every day. While those obstacles may not be as big as they once were, they are still present. I would say my biggest obstacle has always been myself. Growing up I struggled with self doubt and self-acceptance, but now I use those former struggles and the ways in which overcame them to empower others.
There may be times when you get knocked down and feel defeated, but you must never give up. Understand that the struggles and hardships you're going through now will make you stronger, both mentally and physically, as time goes on. You were given these circumstances for a reason and the best thing you can do is to treat them as learning experiences, so that you can in turn help others with similar circumstances.

3/21 is Global Down Syndrome Day. Lots of people participate in lots of activities to bring awareness to Down Syndrome. My family does not. We are 24/7/365 advocates--not for awareness, but for acceptance.
The Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon said on 21 March 2012 "On this day, let us reaffirm that persons with Down syndrome are entitled to the full and effective enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms. Let us each do our part to enable children and persons with Down syndrome to participate fully in the development and life of their societies on an equal basis with others. Let us build an inclusive society for all". .
My ask is simple. Presume competence. Be kind. Be inclusive.

Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA) dedicated their conference room in their South LA Office on Broadway to the memory the late Mrs. Lillian Mobley. She was a dedicated board member at the organization for 13 years.
The mosaic art piece of Lillian Mobley that was unveiled was simply beautiful.
Thank you to LAFLA board member Pat Vining for spearheading this endeavor.

NEW WOMAN WHO DIS?! 🌟
felt like a big one this time because I feel like I'm changing on the daily at this point. In all the best possible ways. These photos are nearly one year apart and I'm in awe of the changes a single person can go through in just one year. Physically, mentally, and emotionally, the scared, uncomfortable, and insecure girl grew into a confident, sure of herself, HAPPY, beautiful woman. I was always beautiful. Nothing about my own personal beauty has changed. Just my own ability to see it. Which is living breathing proof that really nothing is impossible if you know who you are and what you want. Happy Tuesday Darlings! Stay Lovely 💜
Exactly one year ago we decided to start an account for Gadi. The purpose of the account was to spread awareness and inclusion while sharing insight and tips on daily living with CP.
Gadi has come a long way and has overcome so much! We are so very proud of him.
Most importantly he has inspired others and is changing perspectives. His humor and charasma shines through to whoever meets him and we thank Hashem (God) every day for this extraordinary gift!
Since we have so many new followers, I'd like to do another quick introduction.
Gadi is a friendly fun loving 3 year old who happens to be diagnosed with Spastic CP. It affects his legs more severely than his arms and causes his muscles to be tight and stiff. This makes basic everyday things such as sitting, standing and walking a challenge. Gadi uses different equipment and orthotics to help with proper alignment and mobility. He loves music, enjoys dancing and likes to cook with mama.
He recently had a surgical procedure on his spine that helped permanently reduce some of the tightness in his legs.
Gadi is a determined little guy who is totally #crushingit
Thank you for joining us on our journey!
