Today’s mantra: I am proud.
I am proud of my choices. I am proud of my attitude. I am proud of my decision to take care of myself. I am proud of the balance in my life. I am proud of my accomplishments and I am proud of my attempts.
I love myself, I love my body, I love my life, and I love yoga. <3
Last time to reblog this to myself I swear but- I just can’t believe how different my outlook on life, how I handle situations, and how I think of myself has changed. And even just with this short time in California I feel like both my happiness and my confidence has grown exponentially. Thank you- to all of you who have been there for me during this change and who manage to make me smile everyday. <3
Oh, Tabby, you’re so amazing <3
This is awesome!! You are truly inspirational with your yoga practice, namaste! xx
This is just perfect
Don’t listen the voice of your ED, because you deserve to eat.
i wish people understood what it means to be disabled
the fact that we are literally barred from some much of life because the world is built against us
the fact that we are made to feel guilty and burdensome to society as they take everything from us
the fact that we are seen as so inhuman and so unwanted that you can literally get sympathy for killing us
disability is not just about our impairments, it is about what society does to us because of them
If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don’t care for human beings.
Nelson Mandela on the US invasion of Iraq
This is the Mandela that I mourn not the white-washed, sanitized version of a revolutionary figure that aligned with Communists, was part of a group branded as terrorists by Reagan, who continued to voice his opposition to Israel’s apartheid regime and illegal occupation of the West Bank and used armed resistance to fight apartheid in South Africa.
The way white people are exalting him across the political spectrum globally based on his national reconciliation work in South Africa post-apartheid (which did have major pitfalls for non-whites in particular) and erasing his revolutionary past and fight for equality across the globe shows just how ignorant of history they are and how incredibly myopic they are too.
White people are doing to Mandela what they’ve already done to Martin Luther King, Jr., and it makes me sick. If I see one more racist white liberal lionizing Mandela in a way that erases his revolutionary past so their facebook status about his death can serve as their “feel-good” justification of the day for their “liberalism,” I’m going to be sick. And don’t even get me started on the white American conservatives who are now lauding him even as Reagan demonized the ANC and Dick Cheney voted against a resolution that would have urged the South African apartheid government to remove Mandela from prison.
Don’t sanitize Mandela for your white comfort. He’s a hero in many regards, but maybe not for the reasons you might think based on the whitewashing he’s receiving in the media to hollow him out and make him into a puppet figure for racist white liberals and conservatives alike, just like MLK.
I can safely assume 98% of us should be doing homework

I’ve got a theory that if you give 100% all of the time, somehow things will work out in the end. -Larry Bird
According to a study from the University of Washington, the rift between healthy grub and junk food is wider than it’s ever been. Researchers were able to buy 2,000 calories of junk food for $3.52 — that’s an entire day’s caloric intake — where nutritious foods cost them a whopping $36 for the same 2,000 calories.
I cringe when I hear privileged people lament the poor for buying unhealthy food with government assistance. Here, as is so often the case, education and real data are needed to offset anecdotal myths of the “unhealthy, lazy poor.” If it weren’t already obvious enough to the rest of us, unhealthy food is cheaper, duh.
