Vergessene Krisen // Kamerun
Der massiven Vertreibung und dem rasant ansteigenden humanitären Bedarf in den englischsprachigen Teilen Kameruns wurde mit ohrenbetäubendem Schweigen begegnet.
Die Krise in den englischsprachigen Regionen Kameruns begann Ende 2016 mit friedlichen Protesten, weitete sich dann aber zu einem gewalttätigen Konflikt zwischen Militärregierung und nicht-staatlichen bewaffneten Gruppen aus. Über 450.000 Menschen sind infolge des Konflikts auf der Flucht. 780.000 #Kinder
gehen nicht mehr zur Schule. Hunderte Dörfer wurden niedergebrannt, Zehntausende Menschen verstecken sich im Busch und erhalten keine humanitäre Hilfe. Täglich finden neue Angriffe statt.

Well, aside from 2 more chairs I need to build, and a bbq grill.......the patio is complete. Mom helped me build the bitchin bench seen here, and added a fireplace to koley corner. I love all of the contributions from people I love......it makes the whole place that much better. Im glad this weekend is over, but feel beyond blessed to have another layer of peace at our home. @hall_of_fame_customs
thank you! I love you to the moon. #familytime #healing #fightforpeace #godimtired #beer

I just left counseling. The ebb and flow of this journey is something I simultaneously wish upon everyone while not wishing it upon anyone... and that’s okay.
Because more than anything else, counseling teaches us that there’s room for the juxtaposed, the taboo, the nonsensical, the shameful- the heavy... and that it all belongs.
WE belong- every lovely-ugly bit of us.
My counselor loved me with her whole being again today but she put a cherry on top when, as I was leaving, she said “God magnified our time. It felt like four hours went into that hour. You did some awesome work.” I walked in courting despair and left feeling loved and determined- so I’ll take that and ride it out as long as I can.
My challenge for you is to.... just go. Talk to someone. Look at your insurance benefits- find an office that charges by sliding scale. Start building a working relationship with yourself. You’re the only one you’ve got and trust me - you belong. 🖤
does it best. Do yourself a favor- go follow him and fall back in love with hope.

This one was hard for me - to write, to edit, to finish. I’ve had the idea of this post for months but I could never get it to say exactly what I wanted. So, here’s my best attempt I guess.
Love and Peace
to my darling Mehrnaz @mehrrasolhmusic

Mehrnaz ist eine ehemalige Schülerin und heute eine meiner besten Freundinnen. In ihren Liedern singt sie leiden-schaftlich nicht nur über die Liebe, sondern auch gegen jede Form der Ungerechtigkeit und Unterdrückung, love und peace eben. Deshalb widme ich ihr diese Turtel- und Friedenstaube. Ihr Name Mehrnaz bedeutet übrigens 'sanfte Liebe'... Mehrnaz became one of my dearest friends after she had been a pupil of mine for 9 years. She is a passionate singer writing her own songs that she posts on Insta and youtube. Her songs fight for love and speak out against any form of injustice or oppression. Being such a loving person the turtle dove goes out to her and at the same time the dove of peace to make Mehrnaz sing out her message to the world. By the way, her name means 'soft love'.... #mehrnaz #friedenstaube #turteltaube #loveandpeace #doveofpeace #peace #frieden #turtledove #persiansinger #fightforpeace #porzellan #porzellanmalerei #hanpaintedporcelain #porcelainpainting #peacedove
“You will discover real love is millions of miles past falling in love with anyone or anything. When you make that one effort to feel compassion instead of blame or self blame, the heart opens again and continues to opening.” Sara Paddison( the hidden power of heart)
The simplest yet the hardest question to ask yourself.
Who are you? Who truly? Your the essence, your rawest moments.
Creating a more beautiful world our hearts know is possible

After you have been hurt, it's pretty much a natural reaction to put up walls so you can keep other people from getting in. It's like you get to a point where you would rather keep people out than invite people in. It's not easy opening yourself back up after a failed relationship. The more you think about the past and where you went wrong with other people, the more you continue to stay stagnant which ends up slowing down your healing process. But having said all of that, you won't get far in life keeping your heart closed for a very long time. You will end up blocking your own blessings because you couldn't let go of the past. You will end up turning away the most loyal and supportive people in your corner because you are still connected to what someone did to you years ago. Funny thing about life is, the very things that we are scared of, could also end up being the things that lead us straight towards our deliverance. Healing takes time, I understand that. Just don't allow yourself to become a person who hoards every painful and negative thing that happens to you for the rest of your life. You still have a lot of living to do and a lot of love to give.
I struggle with many things but anxiety is my biggest but I'm working on it every day. Fighting for self peace. #junitude
Self Compassion - It takes a lot of compassion to support someone who is suffering. Think about the compassion you extend to others, and remind yourself that you also deserve and need that same kind of compassion. Self compassion is the willingness to be kind to yourself instead of harshly judging your perceived failings. It can help if you recognize that we all share the conditions that lead to life’s struggles.
So yes! You( yourself) is your magic, your true essence.
Even if you don’t believe it or don’t have faith in it, keep pretending you do until it happens🙏🏼✍🏼
Because we forget that we live in our every day bubbles, we do not perceive that there are people in our world that do not have the luxury and comfort of our lives.
What's currently happening in Sudan should be a reminder of all the calamities, sufferings, violations and destruction that are occuring or still occurring in humanity.
Let's bring an abundance of blessings or helping hands to all the people that are going through the horrors of war and conflicts.
Pass on the message.
