"The world needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it." - David W. Orr #riskhappy
Feeling sluggish and heavy from what you eat? Feeling tired even after a good night sleep? Do you struggle with nagging cravings? According to @getoffyouracid these could be symptoms of too much acid in your body. @generositywater helps to neutralise acidity with a perfect pH 10 alkalinity. Just one of many reasons to drink it generously.
So crazy proud of this girl!!! 😍
We were sitting at a restaurant waiting for our lunch and watching this beautiful lady going through trash bags looking for recyclable bottles etc, and Ellia leaned over to me and asked if she should give her some money, she then went and gave her what she had and wished her "Happy New Year".. The lady was so grateful and had a huge smile on her face! Within moments of Ellia doing this small act of kindness, the security guard across the road walked over and began to assist the lady with her bottle collection, moments later, another man walked up and handed the lady some money, inspired by all we had observed; our entire group put money together and gave it to her!
Kindness and generosity perpetuates kindness and generosity!
And it all started with a 10 year old girl giving what she had in her hand and responding from the good in her heart!
I recently attended my annual ophthalmology consultation.
Next, the translation of the medical report:
Caracas, January 30, 2018
Patient: Mr. Gabriel Palacios
Male patient who comes to this consultation since 1989 when he is diagnosed with Stargardt’s Macular Dystrophy.
The patient consulted on the 29th of this month presenting diminished vision for reading, with a SUBNORMAL vision of 20/200 that does not improve with corrective lenses. To see up close, presbyopia lenses Esf.+300 are indicated, which he will use with additional visual aid (magnifying glass of 10X) to read. With this correction he can read characters up to J3.
The ocular fundus examination shows an atrophic macular lesion with thinning of the pigment epithelium and some whitish deposits. The rest of the retina looks normal. The optic nerves, blood vessels and retinal periphery look normal.
This patient presents a Visual Disability due to a Stargardt’s Macular Dystrophy, which produces a significant decrease in central vision, affecting reading. Peripheral vision is preserved, which explains why he does not have problems for mobilization.

"You're probably wondering when will things change? When will it start to get better? Well I have great news for you, the blessings you deserve are about to arrive right now. So much will be lifted off of you. Changes might not happen right away, but it ALWAYS does. Sometimes it takes time to test your patience. To see how ready you are to step into change. Nothing is being held back from you.
Everything is happening for you even when it seems like it's against you. We're so stressed out these days, because we believe everything needs to happen right now. We forget that everything happens in perfect timing. We always want everything to happen instantly. If we don't see anything changing on the outside, we start to lose faith in the power to manifest our reality. We even might start doubting if it's even real or possible. You can't plant the seed and instantly pull it out to see if anything is growing.
Your role now is to water the thoughts, habits, and beliefs you want to manifest externally. Soon you will see what you've planted come into fruition. We have to be more patient and more trusting as we are doing the inner work.
You are making a lot of changes in your life and the energy of your mind, body, and soul is shifting to a higher frequency to align you to new experiences, new habits, new people, new energy, and a whole new mindset. Everything will suddenly change for you. It will all happen. However, your number one focus right now is to continue making the changes and don't give up on yourself.
Keep watering your seed. Give yourself the space you need to reconnect with inner-self. Now that you're going to be more patient, you'll be allowing the work to be done through you and for you. Soon you will notice the results of your efforts. You will see how powerful you are. You will notice that you have the ability to fully transform your life. Give yourself credit right now. You're on a beautiful journey." - via @idillionaire#riskhappy
I am a little late, but Happy #ChineseNewYear!
We run a little #b&b in the #bluemountains, and we just had the most delightful guests checkout. They left a Chinese NY gift for both my children, a very generous offering particularly since they had never met us. It is such a privilege to live in a country where we celebrate all sorts of cultures, there's so much to learn! #grateful#generosity#meetingnewpeople#culturalstories
I am the most grateful for these people, who have thought me the magic of friendship and life and also game me light with my depression, thanks to their strong friendship #friendship -----#honesty#kindness#generosity#laughter#loyalty hopefully I'll get a real pic of all of us to post 😄.
Meet the Ghale family. For those of you who donated over the last few months your generosity will cover school and college fees for 18 months for both sons, allowing the eldest daughter to focus on her own studies and future as she has been working to pay these fees so her brothers can have a bright future. The donation has also pushed the families plans to rebuild foward as here they stand in front of their 'temporary' tin house that has been their home for the last three years.
I want to say a huge thank you to all that donated. I am so blessed to be surrounded by such amazing humans.
But now it's my turn to keep my end of the deal. Today marks the start of the trek to reach Everest base Camp. One step at a time and hopefully in 7 days I'll hit over 5,500m and be standing over halfway to the top of the world!
We love this 🇺🇸🐂🌿 from @SustainableDish!

Here's the deal. If you want to grow in generosity, increase your faith AND your stewardship. Stewardship without faith isn't the point. Faith without stewardship isn't trustworthy. It goes hand in hand, and you can grow in both through this class.
