Grt rising Beloveds! As a community, we must be very, very wary... People will come into our community, and some will even come from our community, that dress nice, speak well, and have all this political experience... they will promise to make changes if elected to office... My question is always, what have you DONE prior to running for office I mean, what is your service to humanity, to the community...! bringing jobs via infrastucture is obviously great and necessary, but if you aren't truly inspiring people from within, to live better, dream bigger, and get involved in their community, then what are you REALLY doing
Politics is great, but public service is what will unite our District, our City and our Nation. I have been building in my community a long time. Speaking to people who aren't normally spoken to, and listening to people who aren't normally heard. I've been in the schools, on the blocks, in the homes and in the parks. I've inspired brothers and sisters in the streets, and I've lent ideas to top educators in schools.
Together, let's build a district that we can ALL take pride in! #vote #MarstonForCouncil #Distirct26 #longislandcity #astoria #woodside #sunnyside #maspeth #2021 #communityservice #communitybuilding #publicservice #servantleadership
HOW TO START A TRIBE - This is one of the most frequently asked question from our DMs & QnA yesterday..
That's why today, we're going to start with the FIRST STEP : FIND A BIG IDEA 💡
What is a BIG IDEA It is something you promise that your member will achieve after they join your tribe.
a simple example :
People join tribe : Keto Diet in order to lose xxx weight with a keto lifestyle 🏃♂️,
or people join a Ferrari Club which costs them millions of dollars, because they want the big idea : power, wealth, status and exclusive networking 💵
Find the big idea, and your members will have a strong REASON to join your tribe
Now it's time for you to find out yours.. What will be the BIG IDEA for your Tribe
👇Let's brainstorm and discuss in the comments!
***SWIPE LEFT*** Interviewer: So Mr. Marston, why are you running for City Council
Me: I'm running so that every child in Queensbridge, Ravenswood, Woodside and throughout the District knows that no matter what their circumstances currently are, no matter what hills they have to climb, that if they put their minds to it, they can accomplish anything! I want them to know they have someone in office who is going to do everything in his power to help them.
If we aren't doing work that inspires our children to dream big, to love deeply, and to build in unity, then what are we really doing! #Vote #MarstonForCouncil #District26 #2021 #activism #communityservice #communitybuilding #servantleadership

Can Colorado Save America When this opinion piece ran in the @nytimes it caught our attention as the subject in the article was from Nucla, CO - just down the road from Camp V. The tag line begins.. “It’s impossible to drive across the state and not be reminded of the first boundlessness of American potential.” We agree. 📸: @onearchitects #communitybuilding #colorado #campv #collaboration
Feel Rich, thank you for giving me permission to publicly view your documentary!! Your film ignited a flame for me to partner with other community leaders to get the word out about healthy living. We will have a panel discussion to help the community with any barriers they may have with incorporating principles from the film and free vegan/plant-based food tastings.
It all started with your film and for that I’m so very grateful!!! I promise to take a photo of the crowd so you can see the turnout!! Blessings! #feelrich #health #wealth #wellness #vegan #plantbased #meditation #communitybuilding #757supports757 #mind #body #soul
Wyld Womxn welcomed the Harvest Full Moon by re-visiting our Map of Care we made in the Winter season which represented different modules of care! We reflected together on the last six months, shared and discussed toxic influences/habits, self-care, collective care, community, and created another map together! 💗
Our new map brought up similar things from our last one from maintaining healthy boundaries, positive communication skills , holding and creating safe spaces, unplugging from social media/ technology to be more present, taking care of flora & fauna, and the multiple ways we can show up better for ourselves, each other, and the communities and natural ecosystems around us. Cultivating a spirit of Gratitude also reappeared! 🌱🤗
A beautiful peach pink sunset filled the sky as we ended with our full moon ritual and shared one thing that excited us about the fall season!
Great evening to kick off our membership drive for the next two weeks! ✊🏽Thank you to everyone who held space with us 🌌 See you at our next full moon gathering on Oct. 11th!🌵🌕
What goes in comes out.
These vids and pics are a window into the big beautiful process of this video series.
So much power, time and energy has made this manifest.
I have big love for these people and this place.
5 days yall.
I’ve redone the introduction to the website and made our focus clearer. I’ve been going though a real journey of my own in this work. I realized very quickly that I cannot connect women to causes that matter to them unless they are actually dedicated to helping the community and not harming it with pity, paternalism, and privilege. I also know that I am a part of oppression if I am assisting nonprofits with their volunteer programming and not teaching them how to keep community at the center of their service efforts or how to embrace, include, and listen to volunteers of color. The more I do this work, the more bold I become in all aspects. I am committed to doing the hard stuff to move the needle from pity to partnership.
Imagine you and the love of your life, your partner in crime both working
Towards your dream careers, while still caring for house hold responsibilities. it can be difficult to balance love with career.
But then your spouse has a career bump that causes their confidence to plummet and your stress level skyrockets as you work hard at your blossoming career. The issue begins to wreak havoc on your rock solid relationship.
Hold on! Your mate has found the ideal job. The pay is great, the hours are perfect but the catch.... it would require you to move to a different state. What do you do
Would you uproot your family and business if your partners career would thrive elsewhere .⠀

Attitude makes all the difference. you have the power to make a mental shift and create that positive outcome for yourself. it isn't about dismissing your feelings or holding them back. it's about self awareness and knowing that you are strong, capable and ultimately choose what to do with what you are given. Maintain that positive self-talk and all the affirmations. Love you all 😊✌

Sending so much gratitude out to our wonderful cycling community in Leadville!! We had an outstanding time at the Open House party on Saturday. The evening shifted gears from tables full of food and so many conversations happening that one young attendee complained it was too loud (sorry Ben!) ... to an after-party dance party crafted by @eyetryangles.
The only option left on Sunday was to attend #dirtchurch. 🤘
Muchísimas gracias a todos los biciamigos que vinieron a darle la bendición a LeadVelo con su presencia!! Con Tacos,cheves y baile la
Pasamos todos de lujo!!

Hi neighbors! Thanks for the follow and being patient with us as we lay the foundation for which this community-driven, youth centered organization will be built.
The mission of Sankofa Mentoring Matters is to cultivate the spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual, social and occupational wellness in youth through life-skills training and experiences.
Our goal is for every child that matriculates through our program, is well-rounded in all facets of his/her life and is equipped to reach back and help the next child following in their footsteps.
Our goals may be lofty but they are certainly attainable with the help of friends and neighbors like you, who are willing to stand alongside and support us as we build.
In the first stage of our mission, we’re raising funds to assist us in recruiting qualified teachers/mentors, purchase supplies and programming costs. A monetary donation of any amount, made on this Thursday, September 19th, would greatly impact our efforts. To schedule your gift and or for more info, click the link in our bio. Drop a 👍🏽 to let us know we can count on your support!

Even in the most successful operations, sometimes it's important to take a step back so you can leap forward with better direction, more clarity and defined goals.
Every year around this time, I have my annual “Oh my goodness it’s September and I have nothing to show for the year” freak out. So I pulled out my journal and tried to work out where the year has gone and what I have to show for myself.
This year The things I wrote down were all around being, not around doing. Being a Mum, being a friend, being myself. Each one of these holds deep stories of awakening for me that can’t be quantified or measured. And in the midst of that reflection, I became ok with that.
So September...when you ask me what I’ve got to show for the year The answer is just me. And that’s enough.

Hello from India! Following a 36-hour journey, the Shanti group has been settling in well in New Delhi. Through Orientation they have been laying the groundwork for the semester ahead: practicing skills to be a savvy travelers, building relationships with each other and engaging with local community members, and a scavenger hunt that has introduced them to the sights, sounds, and history of this beautifully rich and diverse region of the world.
Here the group is pictured in front of the Lodi Gardens. This 90-acre park contains tombs and architectural works of the 15th century by Lodis - who ruled parts of northern India and Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of modern-day Pakistan between 1451 and 1526. One of many fascinating stops they've made in their first few days in the city!
All of the groups in the field are busy with similar orientations in their respective regions. Stay tuned for photos and blog posts as they arrive!

"Gratitude turns what we have, into enough." As I reflect on how life-changing these last year has been, I feel a deep sense of gratitude. Firstly to all the friends that know me and are supporting me always, in so many ways. And so much gratitude for the incredible platform that is @Patreon, to all my patrons, and to those of you who follow me here and comment/like/share my work! Your contributions and messages inspire me to continue moving forward and growing.
The second photo here is with @andeesmiles. Andee became my mentee through Patreon back in February. Since then, we have been checking-in every month, sharing inspiring conversations where I give my best advice in support of her personal and professional journey, as she transitions from her current job to studying a culinary curriculum in a SF culinary school. And we finally got to meet in person in San Francisco at the @PlanetHome event.
Patreon has helped me see my current and future work with more clarity, in addition to bringing incredible humans into my life to weave mutually beneficial relationships. I thank you all for the incredible support and co-creation energy that you have brought into my life!
I'm excited for what is coming! Onwards!
La gratitud convierte lo que tenemos en suficiente.
Reflexionando sobre cómo ha cambiado mi vida este año, siento un profundo sentimiento de gratitud. En primer lugar, a todos los amigos que me conocen y me apoyan siempre, de muchas y distintas maneras. Por otro lado, mucha gratitud por la increíble plataforma que es @Patreon, por todos mis Patrons y por todos ustedes que siguen mi recorrido por Instagram. Todo el; feedback que recibo (likes, los comentarios, cuando comparten mi trabajo, tags) me inspiran a seguir avanzando y creciendo 🙏
La segunda foto que ven aquí es con @andeesmiles. Andee se convirtió en mi aprendiz a través de Patreon en febrero. Desde entonces, hemos estado trabajando juntos cada mes, compartiendo conversaciones inspiradoras donde intento dar lo mejor de mí para apoyarla en su recorrido personal y profesional (...)

Many thanks to everyone who made our 2nd annual Black Artistic Healing Showcase one for the books - the Glorifying Blackness team, the involved artists, family, friends + more. We appreciate everyone who came out to join us !
It was a beautiful night full of genuine, good energy all around. From the impromptu collaboration between artists meeting for the first time to how engaged the audience remained throughout, our hearts are full.
Watch this space for views of the night and more. Here’s to healing within ourselves for ourselves 🖤. Visual created by @ikeslimster.
It takes a village to raise a child, a community to support a dream, and an island surrounded by just enough water you gotta rely on a B.C. ferry to get off to create a story worth telling.
This is the cast of #FerryTales, a night of story telling pulled together by the crew of us in the pic, @cindikeep @conn_ingram @tinaolife, @enjoyyourlife and more.
It was a fundraiser and every $$$ that came in supported my kid’s hockey dream. He’s lucky enough to be playing Junior B with @glacier_kings and he’s thrilled.
While the event is a fundraiser that will likely become an ongoing annual event here on @bowenislandtourism, to support another kid taking an alternative path toward their future (not going to uni yet, or ever), the evening took on a life of its own. The $$$ became secondary to the stories, our connection, and how proud we are to live here. And we did raise money. HALF of C’s hockey fee came from the show alone. 👣
STORY connects us all. And it takes a story, and lots of them to bind a community and a dream together. ❤️
We’re all heart.
