es ist Samstag und ich gehe hier in #münchen die #leopoldstrasse entspannt entlang, und „denke mir nichts Böses“. In #fidschi , hatte ich während der unzähligen #SURVIVOR Wettkämpfe mein Lieblings T-shirt von #patagonia an: „LIVE SIMPLY“. Das T-shirt fiel sukzessive, durch die unendlichen Strapazen, komplett auseinander. Und plötzlich sehe ich hier, per Zufall, ein „repair is a radical act“ mobiles Werkstatt von #patagonia ; gleich um die Ecke von meiner Wohnung.
Und als die Patagonia-Leute am Stand herausfanden, wo das T-shirt gewesen war, haben wir gleich unzählige Bilder und Interviews gemacht. Mehr dazu später
Every thing I became it’s because you would not love me.
You see I wanted your love so badly, more than anything, but no matter what I did, you would not give it to me.
You alone were my dream, you still are
I never wanted to be grounded, self sufficient, or healthy
I just wanted you
But you became my muse
You became the fire burning in my belly
Your unrequited love became my drive
To push harder
On those many mornings I have, I still do
Where there’s passion running through my veins for you
I put it into myself
I can’t find the bliss you once gave me
So I turn to self care
I only wanted to have fun
I never wanted to have stability
But I tried, I tried so hard to find my joy through you
But I only found pain
So I found 2 solid feet to stand on, and clouds, and stars, and moons to rely on to guide me through my darkest days and coldest nights
I find my deepest innermost reservoir of strength because you would not love me
I still love you so much
But I’ve learned what loving myself means too. -ASB #writer#poet#warrior#heartbreak#strength#survivor#unrequitedlove#loss#heartache#drive#passion#mirrorsouls#twinflame#divinefeminine#love#poetrycommunity#stubbornashell#invisibleloss@christinarasmussen7
Reposted from @nycscr (@get_regrann) - Mama Harlie found herself giving birth to 5 beautiful calico mix kittens under someone’s house at 7 months old. Harlie a baby herself had no chance in surviving with her babies in the blistering middle of summer.
Harlie was rescued with her five kittens in Queens NY. Their nightmare was over, they were safe but they were very sick. Harlie and her kittens spent 5 days at the vets office fighting an upper respiratory infection. They’ve have all gone into a foster home to recover.
This precious family is looking for their happy ending. Harlie a baby herself is the sweetest and most grateful kitty. She is so thankful as if she knows we have saved her and her babies.
Please consider becoming Harlie’s or one of her babies forever family. Let’s give this story the happy ending it deserves.

3 years ago it took all my strength and courage to walk into that police station and report a childhood sexual abuse against me and someone else. Being 20 years old and having to speak about stuff that happened over 10 years ago was the hardest bit of all. All those "boxes" I'd closed up for all those years.. never wanting to tell anyone until another person came forward and if it wasn't for this person I don't think anyone would ever know to this day. Fast forwards 3 years later I still have my bad days, certain smells or noises takes me right back..but I'm most definitely stronger and I sleep better at night knowing the scum that did it is suffering in jail for another 10 years! #survivor#ptsd
Been going through my evidence overnight, preparing everything to go public in the near future. I've fought tirelessly to get justice via the police and Crown Prosecution Service for the last two years....but when your abuser is a detective for the most powerful police force in the UK, you get nowhere. The system spends more time and effort silencing the victims, than prosecuting the perpetrators. This just isn't right. No one has ever taken an official statement from me, my abuser has never been interviewed...they're doing their best to cover it up and intimidate, threaten and distress me to try and gag me. I will not be silenced. You shouldn't be silent. They deserve to be exposed, for the criminals the are! Death threats sent to my Mum, financial abuse forcing me to pay for things legally in his name, confessing to physical abuse, admitting he abused his Mum before ever meeting and hurting me (a pattern of behaviour)....just a snippet of all the evidence I have....all ignored by police. This needs to change. Victims/survivors need to be heard! #saynotoabuse#standuptoabuse#corruptcops#corruptpolice#dontstaysilent#change#covertnarcissist#narcissisticabuse#justice#fightforwhatsright#helpothers#abuse#life#death#victim#survivor#strong#nevergiveup
It’s never too late..
Keith Richards revealed earlier this year that he’d stopped taking drugs, mainly because the ones they have now are “very institutionalised and bland”. Now it turns out he’s also quit drinking, having realised it was time to start living a little healthier.
“It’s been about a year now”, he tells Rolling Stone about his more sober existence. “I pulled the plug on it. I got fed up with it. It was time to quit. Just like all the other stuff”.
He’s not completely stopped, he says, still enjoying “a glass of wine occasionally and a beer”. However, for the most part he doesn’t miss the booze, saying: “I don’t notice any difference really – except for I don’t drink. I wasn’t feeling [right]. I’ve done it. I didn’t want that anymore”.
Other Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, who quit drinking almost a decade ago, has noticed some big differences though. He says: “He’s a pleasure to work with. Much more mellow. He’s open to more ideas, whereas before I’d kind of grit my teeth and go, ‘He’s gonna give me some shit for saying this’. Now, he’ll say, ‘That’s cool, man'”.
Wood adds that it’s improved their live shows too, saying of their first shows with both guitarists sober earlier this year: “We’re weaving [guitar parts] a lot more conscientiously now. We’re much more aware of the gaps and the spaces between. We’re in our 70s, but we’re still rocking like we’re 40 year olds, you know?”
Richards admits he enjoyed the sober performing too, saying of the end of that tour “everyone looked at each other saying, ‘No, we’re just getting going!’ That’s when the idea came to play the States”.
I ask you right here please to agree with me that a scar is never ugly. That is what the scar makers want us to think. But you and I, we must make an agreement to defy them. We must see all scars as beauty. Okay? This will be our secret. Because take it from me, a scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, I survived...
Day 22: what things make you feel bad but you find yourself doing them anyway
I think giving into my anxiety/image worth is one, things have been difficult this month and some days I’m not as strong as I want to be

Schönen Sonntag meine Lieben💋
Was für ein Wetter oder? Mega🌞🎉🎡 Ich hab heute mal laaaange ausgeschlafen. Und dachte ich beriesle euch mal noch kurz mit meinen #weisheitenfürsleben 🤭🤣 Gestern war für mich ein Premierentag❗Zum ersten mal in meinem Leben bin ich #riesenrad gefahren. Meine Höhenangst und ich kämpfen immer wieder mal miteinander aber hin und wieder bin ich stärker😉 meine kleine Nichte hat mir gut zugesprochen🥰😂 darum hab ich überlebt ( #survivor )
Heute ruh ich mich erstmal aus und später geht es wieder aufs #vofe nach Crailsheim❤
Rasûlüllâh (Sallâllâhu Aleyhi ve Sellem)‘in Sevban isminde azatlı bir kölesi vardı. Bir gün Rasûlüllâh (Sallâllâhu Aleyhi ve Sellem)‘in huzuruna geldi. Yüzünün rengi kaçmıştı ve bitkin bir hâli vardı. Rasûlüllâh Efendimiz: “Ya Sevban! Nedir bu halin? Bir yerin mi ağrıyor, bir hastalığa mı yakalandın?” diye sordu
Sevban buna cevaben: “Anam babam sana feda olsun Ya Resûlallah! Hiçbir yerim ağrımıyor. Bir hastalığa da tutulmadım. Lakin senden ayrı kalmaya dayanamıyorum. Dünyada huzurunuza gelerek hüznümü teskin ediyorum. Ama âhireti düşünüyorum. Siz Makam-ı Mahmud sahibisiniz. Nebiler makamında bulunacaksınız. Ben ise cennete girsem dahi sizin mertebenizde olamayacağım. Sohbetinizde bulunamayacağım. Eğer giremezsem, sizi görmekten ebediyyen mahrum kalacağım. O zaman benim halim ne olacak? İşte bu düşünceler, endişeler ve sizden ayrı kalmanın korkusu beni bu hale düşürdü” diye cevap verdi.
Bunun üzerine Peygamber efendimiz "Kişi sevdiğiyle beraberdir." (Buhârî, Edeb, 96)
Sevban’ın bu hali üzerine şu âyet-i kerime nazil oldu:
وَالشُّهَدَٓاءِ وَالصَّالِح۪ينَۚ وَحَسُنَ اُو۬لٰٓئِكَ رَف۪يقاًۜ ﴿٦٩﴾ “Ve her kim Allah (u Teâlâ) ya ve Peygambere itaat ederse işte onlar, Allah (u- Teâlâ)nın kendilerine in’am buyurmuş olduğu Nebiler, Sıddıklar, Şehidler ve Sâlih zatlar ile beraberdirler; onlar ise ne güzel refikdirler!” (Nisâ Suresi: 69)
