As much beauty as there is in our world, you can hear her groaning with a whole lotta aches and pains, often caused by us humans. . As a forever Grey’s Anatomy fan from the very first pilot episode, I love this quote from Shonda Rhimes, "Volunteer some hours. Focus on something outside of yourself. Devote a slice of your energies towards making the world suck less every week. . So, I want to ask you today, What Impact do *you* want to have on this good earth? . What makes my heart bleed most are the evils of sexual exploitation, racial injustice, and misunderstanding/mistreatment due to mental health. . I do what I can in my little meet ups and workshops to raise awareness about human trafficking, while mobilizing people to donate their practice lettering to survivors of the sex trade. . I love spending time getting creative with the women in recovery. I love seeing their eyes light up when they choose which love notes they want to take with them and see that they matter and are so valuable. Their courage gives me hope in my own struggles. I feel like I receive so much more in return for the little I give. . I know you are big-hearted and compassionate. I’d love to hear in the comments, what are some of the causes and passions that make your heart beat and bleed the most? What are some of the things you currently or hope to do to make a difference? . . This quote is part of a lettering challenge that I'm hosting over at (link in profile for prompts). Let’s gather to letter positive and powerful quotes. Let's change the world, one letter, one word at a time. 💜🖋🌍🖌 . . . . . #
Love this!!! And your "little" meetups I'm sure have a big impact on those people's lives. I am so passionate about going really green and finding a true balance in this crazy world. And being a representative for little brown girls that they can do anything they want.
I love this!! I volunteer each week as a literacy tutor, teaching adults to read. It is such a wonderful feeling to see my students accomplishing goals they never thought they would reach. You are so right when you say, "I receive so much more in return for the little I give". I know that feeling well.
This is beautiful!
I love this and you! You are amazing with what u r doing~ 😘💕
thanks Kana! YES to your heart to bring a little more calm and green into this world. And all the little brown girls will be inspired by you showing up and shining your light! (But not just the brown girls will be inspired...) 💜
keep on doing that good work you do, in literacy and photography! I think you just named my fave part of working in a teaching capacity is to see students be amazed at their own progress. Feels so good for them and we get to enjoy it too! 💜
thanks so much! Love what you’re doing in empowering women 💜
aw thanks So much Karen! Love your beautiful heart too!
Love this! I'm really big on volunteering. Since moving to Vancouver I've been active volunteering with first united on the downtown east side - it's more than a shelter, it's like a community and resource center for people struggling with homelessness.
