Sorry Day | Today, on Sorry Day (May 26), we remember the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians who were forcibly removed, as children, from their families by government, welfare or church authorities and placed into institutional care or with non-Indigenous foster families. They had no contact with their own families, language, culture, belief system or heritage. They suffered profound grief and trauma, and feel ongoing pain. Today we recognise the power of resilience, healing and saying Sorry. Please leave a ❤️ if you believe we should recognise the wrongs of the past as a way towards reconciliation.
Freedom To Be Yourself 🗽 | I am always humbled by the support I receive for the way I express myself. Sadly, not everyone receives this kind of kindness. A few days ago, I saw that @alokvmenom has been receiving so many comments telling them to die and that they should kill themselves. As a gender non-conforming performance artist, writer, educator, and entertainer, Alok has been systematically dehumanised, demonised and degraded online and on the street for simply existing. The world should not be a terrifying place for anyone and no one should ever feel alone. I would like to show Alok that there is more support for them than they know. If you believe in showing your support for and celebrating gender non-conforming people of colour, please leave a 🔥.
Kind Warriors | I heard this wisdom from a friend as part of @theembassyofkindness project (see last post). People who are kind are also warriors. They have to remind people of the right way to treat others even if that’s not the popular choice. They have to put themselves in the firing line and say that’s not okay because what we say and do can change people’s lives. Leave a 🖤 if you agree.
Lose Your Head...On Kindness | It is very easy to look at all the bad things in the world and lose your head. We become afraid. We become unkind. We become disconnected. So I’ve decided that it’s time to bring more kindness into the world and set myself a challenge. -
Starting today for the next 100 days, I am going to share a story of kindness each day on my photo project @theembassyofkindness. I will be interviewing strangers and friends and sharing how kindness can make a difference. If you are looking for a little inspiration, please drop by @theembassyofkindness. It would mean the world. And if you believe that there could be more kindness on @Instagram leave a 💛.
A Senseless Tragedy | Another school shooting occurs, and more innocent lives are lost. It is heartbreaking that the children affected by this tragedy felt it was only a matter of time before gun violence reached their world. Please understand that using violence to express your frustration with others is not okay. Leave a 💛 if you agree.
Standing Proud | Today is International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism & Transphobia but it is important to fight bigotry all year round. Dedicated to my LGBTIQ friends, followers and communities everywhere. Leave a 🌈 if you stand with them against prejudice, inequality, hatred, discrimination & violence.
Not My Monkeys | I saw a poster the other day. It said ‘Not my circus, not my monkeys’. It means if someone is trying to drag you into their dramas, don’t get involved. The best thing is to let them live in their drama filled world. You have more important things to focus on. Leave one of these 🐵🙈🙉🙊🐒 if you agree.
Humanity | There is so much conflict, violence and suffering in the world. And yet so many of us ignore the plight of others, because they are different to us, because it doesn’t affect us. But it does. We are losing our humanity. We have to do better. We have to do more. Leave a ❤️ if you agree.
Hopes and Dreams | To all of you celebrating or remembering the important women in your life today, Happy Mother’s Day. I would not be the person I am without the amazing influence and kindness of my mother. Any parent who carries and nurtures the hopes and dreams of their child is incredible. Leave a 💙 if you agree.
Let It Go | It is easy to hold onto something you don’t agree with and let anger get the better of you. The hard thing, is to take a deep breath, walk away, and then come back when you’ve let go. Leave a ✊️ if you agree.
Borders | If people create borders around you, don’t be afraid to see the beautiful possibilities on the other side. Leave a 💛 if you agree.
Hero | Imagine if you had a condition where your bones were so fragile they could break very easily? Imagine then, over the course of your life breaking bone after bone so that by the time you were 40, you had broken over 570 bones and spent a lot of time in and out of hospital. And then imagine facing each day in a world that doesn’t always understand the challenges you experience and doesn’t always see the courage you show. What you may not know is that Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is a real brittle bone disease and today is Wishbone day, a day to raise awareness of OI. It is also a chance to celebrate the achievements of the OI community. This story is my tribute to a good friend with OI. His favourite comic book hero is Superman, but I think he is the real hero. Leave a ✊️ if you agree, and if you read this far, a huge thank you.
