My interactions with farm #animals have shown me that they have emotions and personalities just like our pet friends. Let’s show the world that we care how all animals are treated.

if i believe
in death be sure
of this
it is
because you have loved me,
moon and sunset
stars and flowers
gold crescendo and silver muting.

Things to remember

Sometimes people try to destroy you, precisely because they recognize your power — not because they don’t see it, but because they see it and they don’t want it to exist.

     “I was raised in a family of incredibly strong women, and I always thought that quality was ingrained in me as well. But I continually found myself drawn to relationships with physically and emotionally abusive men. Those were really, really terrible situations in which I gave up everything—entire paychecks, my education, my social life—to make them happy. I was embarrassed to tell people because ‘battered woman’ has a huge social stigma to it. I also thought that was what made me a good person and a strong person—the act of giving. 
     “It took me a long time to realize that although selflessness is great, one needs to find a balance and learn how to walk the fine line between selflessness and selfishness.”
