The Injustice of Professional Sports - Sochi and Beyond

Everyone recalls the homophobia and outright social injustice that took place in Russia during the Sochi Olympics 2014. Yet somehow, the world came, played and left without paying little attention to helping transform the lives of those who are victims of controlled injustice. I watched the Olympics because I celebrate the athletes and I find it very exciting; I don't think those who trained so hard should be punished for the bad decisions of the governing bodies of the Olympic games. However I do strongly believe that the selection of a hosting city should be primarily based on the way they treat their own people. We should not pour economy and celebration into places that preach bigotry and hatred.

Professional sports are racist, sexist and homophobic - is this news shocking to anyone? We have seen this outplay over and over. It seems that money can buy almost anything, but not morality and justice. It's too bad that athletes that come from humble beginnings have to make deals with the devil to be celebrated for their talents. Who is the master and who is the slave? Sports are meant to bring people together, not divide them.

Daily Deep Dose

Often what is perceived as the end is actually a new beginning. In order for space to be found so that you may grow, you must let go of expectations from before. I never have felt so confident alone, I have learned that it's ok to be single and fulfilled by giving myself the best of me. One day I may be ready for another's love, but today I choose me.

Live your life in a way that fulfills you. Don't worry about meeting the status quo in any way, just live freely and with real hope that what is meant to come, will come. What has served it's purpose should be released, so that you can truly focus on your spiritual journey. Grinding at the 9-5 each day, let what really matters have as much focus each day. Look at your priorities, is life pushing you to see new opportunities?

 Sincerely, I thank all the players, haters, ex-lovers and ex-friends for the grief and discomfort they may have caused me and my stubborn ways. It is through their hateration, indifference and selfish ways that I am moulded into the fierce woman I am today. If we ever pass ways, just smile and even say 'hey,' but know that it's better you stay away. I have no place for past energy in my everyday.

Daly Deep Dose

Only with an open-mind can we achieve an open-heart. When we consciously respect the beauty that each living being embodies, we realize that through differences we are able to celebrate the magnificence of all creation and life. North to south, east to west, instead of looking at our differences as a flaw, celebrate them instead.

 Through solitude I have grown into a different woman. There was a time when solitude crippled me and all I could hear was the sound of sadness clapping in my ear, and a feeling of death lingering near. Now with solitude I have found peace, a place of silence where I am reminded that my soul is free and only I can cage her into captivity. Past casualties have been endured to guide me to remain one with my love and creativity - I'm still me.

While certain moments have caused you to fall on your knees and cry, it is these crippling times that have taught you how to fly. Of what you can be certain; when you let go of what you thought you should be, you can finally fulfill the infinite possibilities of what you may become.

The path you take is that of your choice. There should be no desperation or pressures that lead you astray from the intended way. However, there should be no stubbornness that insists it is wrong to adjust the course when the signs want you to ask why. Never cease to believe that you have a place through it all.

LGBTQ Friends: Get Screened!

Cancer can be prevented and treated effectively when detected. However,  lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities are less likely to get screened than those who are heterosexual. It is important that all colourful individuals, no matter sex or orientation take a look at the important program that The Canadian Cancer Society has launched by clicking here: Get Screened

The Get Screened program aims to increase colon, breast and cervical cancer screening rates among LGBTQ communities in Ontario. Take the action to take care of yourself, afterall, your health is important!

So much hurt, so much pain, each day is yet undetermined. I know it takes some time to regain what has been lost inside. All I ask for is the strength to believe in myself when my spirit is being put to the test. To remove sadness and frustration and trust the universe will show me the way. To rest my mind and body and awake refreshed and brand new. To remember what I wanted then, may not be what I want now. Brave it out.

Worry less about reactions and put more thoughtfulness into your actions. Actions speak intention, so think before you act and consider prior to when you speak. The more time you place into making wise decisions, the less time you will spend regretting what could have been done differently. Do right from the start to minimize the strain on your heart.

Learning to develop your focus to further encourage a successful life, requires the discipline and attitude of positivity. External forces should not impact this road, it is for you to drive at your goals. If you work hard at what you do, the universe will reward and acknowledge you. You need to have perspective to see how this comes through. It may not be how you imagined it would, but infinite possibilities are open to you.

There is nothing wrong with believing you deserve the best, if you strive to be your best without the input of ego. Nothing is worth sacrificing yourself, as there comes a time of resignation -  to choose to truly see the signs that some pieces just don't fit right. Spend more time convincing yourself that self-respect and envisioned hopes are valid and less time convincing others of your worth. Those that do not see your value have consciously chosen to be blind, don't be fooled, they can see just fine.
