Accept Yourself (A Loving Reminder)

Dear lovely, You are cherished and adored. Be not afraid of anything in your world and know that you have done so much to heal and whole yourself, to be who you truly are.

The Missing Pieces (of Poverty)

We've created a culture of leaving people feeling as though they're missing something. We've created a collective belief that, as a community and as an individual, we are not whole, nor okay.

We've bought the idea that we can consume something or someone that can leave us feeling more whole. In the midst of our chaos of un-wholeness, we've created deep poverty. More ...
