International Women’s Day

All my ladies, where you be at?! Today is the day to celebrate and support the beauty that is you! The greatness that is your smartness, the awesome person that you are.

Today is also the day to get inspire and see how you can also help support and celebrate other women. Not just the other women in the your life, but those women who are not so lucky. How will you mark today?

One of the first places that I would suggest taking a look at, to help you get inspired or is you are asking yourself “What can I do?” Have a look at the website International Womens Day … What can you do?! One of the great functions about this website is that you can look at your country and state and see what events they have.

Also look for the hashtag #PledgeforParity

There is always HopeLine

Continuing with my theme of “Love” this week, I introduce you all to I’m Alive (Twitter) and Random Acts Org (Twitter) and their theme for the week…

Hopeline

Look up the hashtag #ThereIsAlwaysMe. The idea is for the next week, in random places, leave inspiring notes for friends and strangers, randomly. I’m planning on doing it myself, please join me!

Wild Earth Magic

If you read my posts you will know how obsessed I am with a particular web live cam feed. Wild Earth Safari with Nat Geo Wild. Press this Link! You will not regret it, I promise!

“WildEarth Safaris return from Djuma Game Reserve and Arathusa Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sand Wildtuin.
All drives will be shown on Ustream with the exception of the Sunset drives (9 AM- noon ET) during Big Cat Week (Nov 29th – Dec 7th).”

I decided that I would post some pictures today that will show only a little tiny part of why I LOVE this unique experience so much! (Sorry, for my bad formatting)

Check out hashtag: #SafariLive on Twitter!

I have a lot to be thankful for today, I am finally ending my work full-time (so yay!) but not only that my brother is coming down and is visiting for the weekend too, so I am really happy about that too =D It has definitely put me in the right mood!

Compassion to me is a very interesting concept mainly because the world seems like an interesting mix of what we individually think Compassion is. How in one moment we think what we are doing is compassionate then realise in the next moment maybe we are not as compassionate as we first thought we were. I have always felt that I cannot be compassionate when I am not taking care of myself first. Even with this though sounds like a selfish deed. I cannot take care of others when I feel like my own life is under so much pressure.

In this moments though that when we really face what matters to us and who matters to us. Every single one of us the ability to be compassionate, we just have to discover what is important to us. The most important thing though is to remind yourself to be kind to yourself. I have always believed though that you cannot be there for others if you are not kind to yourself first.

Though I am not a religious person the most compassionate person I think of when I think of “Compassion” is the Dalai Lama and I think that his teachings could teach us all a lot!
