Lembas shop, bulk bought 25k of oats, comes in a paper bag and we're splitting it between 3 of us.
I also bought some dried red lentils, some kidney beans, some granola and some arborio rice, we've been making oat milk from the oats and having it with the granola ⭐️
The beans, lentils, granola and rice come in Cellophane packaging, which is compostable 👍🏼 ♻️ and they are tatties off of @mikkmurray allotment 🙌🏼 🥔 thinking about being zero waste has really got me thinking about the most sustainable decision I can make, and it's not always zero packaging, I highly recommend any locals to Sheffield check out Lembas, even if you do buy in plastic you can return it to Lembas to be recycled. They are a veggie / vegan wholefoods wholesaler and I'm excited to shop there more! ☺️💛🌈 any waste free tips always welcome 🙏🏼 I love sharing mine with you ⭐️ (tagged a few of my zero waste inspirations 💛)

The qualities of leadership come in a vast assortment of possible combinations, and we all have traits that would serve us well in such a role. However, we also have human shortcomings that could compromise our ability to lead if allowed to.
Some people feel comfortable in leadership roles and actively seek them out. Others are much more reluctant to wield power in a social setting and actively try to avoid scenarios where others look to them as an authority. Regardless of where we fall along the spectrum we all play the role of leader in some way, shape, or form during the course of our lives. There is always someone who looking to us for guidance, always someone for whom we set the example. And whether we realize it or not, when we are in a leadership position the impact of our words and actions is amplified.
We all carry within us great power, and it is up to us to determine how we express it. Finding oneself in a socially defined leadership role does not, in fact, make anyone a leader. That status is determined by the competency and quality of a leader, expressed most profoundly by the strength of their character.
Isis elaborates on this theme, reminding us that responsible authority is not about controlling others through coercion, manipulation, or force. An honorable leader recognizes that personal authority is more valuable than institutional authority. This kind of leader would rather be chosen for the role by the people around them, based upon the strength of their character, the example they set, and their competency in handling challenges.
Kuan Yin reminds us that an exceptional leader also persistently seeks out the best ways to utilize their authority for the benefit of all. Our natural aptitudes and hard earned wisdom are precious assets which allow us to create priceless treasures in the world around us and in the lives of others, treasures which may well mark a legacy that will endure throughout the generations to come.
To book a private session visit:
After the Second World War, emphasis was placed on tolerance for peaceful coexistence, in order to avoid another serious confrontation. But its exaggerated use has become an absurd relativism: anything is now considered acceptable in favor of tolerance. Thus, the concept and practice of tolerance, elevated to the category of imperatives of "politically correct", have become canons of what is acceptable and what can be rejected ... and even of the reprehensible.
Thus, it is now denigrated all traditional values or concepts and everything different to what is almost "consecrated" by a misunderstood tolerance. It seems that we want to promote a kind of unique thought that consecrates new and weak principles and values, denigrating other principles and values built up over the years. If one speaks of tolerance, then it is a question of coexisting, not of imposing or suppressing force, with "new" arguments. In the field of social, political-ideological and cultural, both relativism and dogmatism are rejected.
How much right Cardinal Ratzinger to say that relativism degenerates into absolutism or a new kind of fundamentalism, which aims to impose itself as "the new truth" in detriment of valuable arguments or acceptable reasons.

Remember my post about palm oil deforestation? Pictured here is the orangutan, whose species population is now less than half of what it was in 1995 due to our large demand for palm oil, which destroys their homes. Similarly, the vaquita dolphin, the Javan rhinoceros, the western lowland gorillas, and the Amur leopord are examples of other wildlife on the road to extinction because of our actions. I bet you read all those names and couldn’t really tell yourself what’s distinct about those animals - don’t worry, neither could I. That’s the problem. There’s so much wildlife out there that is 100% necessary for the survival of the planet that the average non-wildlife biologist has no idea that they exist. Yet we are killing them. If we lived closer and saw them, I am sure our actions would be radically different.
The article by @guardian states “the number of wild animals on Earth has halved in the past 40 years, as humans kill for food in unsustainable numbers and pollute or destroy habitats, and worse probably lies ahead”.
Our current targets to create protected reserves and seas are no where near enough to halt extinction. “The current focus on protecting what humans are willing to spare for conservation is unscientific. Instead, conservation targets should be determined by what is necessary to protect nature. This point is stressed by Harvey Locke, who organization Nature Needs Half campaigns for the preservation of 50% of our planet for wildlife”.
Half our earth is definitely a large number - considering we can’t just isolate certain areas of the world but have to integrate it within each area where wildlife can be found. Other challenges include managing how wildlife in their conservation zones and humans can live safely with each other. However, I think this is something that needs to be explored, studied and materialized. We cannot keep treating this earth like it’s our own, and we can’t keep moving towards a life where we will be the only surviving organisms, until we, ourselves, become extinct.
This article “Should we give up half the Earth to wildlife” is very informative and interesting. Link is in bio for the day, please take a read.
Nothing much going on tonight I just got home from work. 12:00 AM here in Millersville. So I just wanted to share my favorite video, which is Charlie Chaplin speech from The Great Dictator as a reminder. "Let us fight to free the world - to do away with national barriers - to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness." #CharlieChaplin#thegreatdictator#ethics
I love, love, love getting super cute deliveries, especially when they’re like this one from @franklyeco ✨ If you didn’t see my story, these skincare products are all natural, VEGAN and free from all the nasties usually found in supermarket mainstream skincare products! I’ve already tried out both their body balm and facial mist, and they’re amazing! 💕
Something's wrong? This was the second voicemail I received from Eve Kupferman. After couples counseling, meds, suicide attempts and now months later a level of violence and threats towards an infant like I've never experienced in the years of living with the mother of my child I get this voicemail, the second, in response to me calling her therapist and informing her that after returning home from a short trip out of town to a funeral I returned home to multiple empty bottles of alcohol, she was drunk when I walked I the door and then forced me to have sex with her to prove my love and that's only what's happened recently. I also told Eve Kupferman that I was calling with my partners full knowledge, she gave me her number and also acknowledged that she needed to get therapy for her previous diagnosis. However this voicemail seems to indicate that Eve Kupferman is aware of her drinking, getting violent, sometimes threading suicide, other times becoming violent towards others, and thinks that's ok? She also doesn't seem to be aware that we've gone to couples counseling, that's were it was recommended she see a psychiatrist to get meds prescribed, got those meds and then had a suicide attempt which prompted an emergency psych appointment in which she was diagnosed with a Dissociative Identity Disorder which she refused treatment because according to her she'd work with Eve Kupferman for treatment. Eve Kupferman somehow doesn't even seem to be aware we are living together, somehow she's questioning if her patient is lying to her when the person living with her is calling her for help? Is this normal?
I feel like if people from our generation were in parliament, I would be able to comprehend what’s going on in politics a whole lot more. 🤔
It would help break down the bull$h!t and make me more interested. 😯
I can imagine my uni friend @paulvlhunt being an awesome translator of political lingo to millennial language, telling it straight like, “Guys, if this bill passes we are all effed.” I can imagine my friend Leah @findspaceyoga campaigning for tax free tampons like a boss.
I can imagine my friend @beckybum ripping into the opposition with hard facts at Parliament House stunning all the older parliamentarians with her arguements.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could engage more in politics with younger faces to relate to and understand? 👨👱♀️
It would be so refreshing! 🧖♀️
Why aren’t there younger faces in parliament? 🙋♀️
Is there some kind of law/tedious process against it? 🤷♀️ Also, what kind of platform do you get your political news from? 🗞
Is there a more engaging network out there for us 20 somethings who don’t keep up to date with politics enough? 🧐
Asking for a friend 🤥
I like that meme. Instagram isn't posting my last post so ... urgh, I feel crazy. So many questions all over again. I remeber thinking wtf? Not only how could a therapist be ok with someone's drinking and abusing meds but more realistically how can they say they're more aware of someone's behavior than the person who is living with them? And do they not know they're living with them? That's really strange. Those voicemails have haunted me for years. They just don't make any sense. Nothing has made me question my reality more than those voicemails. I know how it sounds but the mother of my child had just raped me and this was just the most recent of a soooo many things that regardless of my feelings and what happened apparently men don't get raped becuase "i enjoyed it" but that's also not even my biggest concern considering we live with an infant and the first time I've left her alone with her, after driving me to the airport, then called my mother saying I left her and didn't tell where I went. Then I come back to an apartment full of empty bottles of alcohol and she fully admits to drinking it all while being alone with our daughter. That's all going on and after years of trying to deal with this craziness alone I finally ask her if I could have her therapist phone number. I knew her name, I could of just called her. However I'm dealing with a monster of a personality and the one thing that has seemingly had me be able to get her to calm down when in manic violent suicidal rages is that I've never broken her trust. So I call her therapist thinking she's also spoken to her about her drinking while i was away and for some reason texting me saying she had no idea where I was even though she drove me there... and I get those voicemails back. Two of them. I was in shock and still am. I remember and still do think how much is wrong with those voicemails. So many lies would have to had been said and believed for Eve Kupferman to leave a voicemail so psychologically harmful. I've tried for years to find out just the simplest of answers. Did she know we were living together, had been for years and had not gone more than 24 hours apart in all those years? Did she know
