The media keeps telling us that we can’t afford Medicare-for-all but what they fail to mention is that the U.S is the ONLY first world country IN THE WORLD without universal healthcare. All these nations are able to afford it because they prioritize the needs of their citizens. We simply don't have our priorities straight when it comes to budgeting our money. Congress gave the military a $61 billion increase from fiscal year 2017 to 2018 even thought they didn’t ask for a budget increase. We are giving corporations a $10 BILLION tax cut instead of using our tax dollars to fund programs that benefit the American people. As Warren Buffet said, “there is no reason as to why I should be paying lower taxes than my secretary.” Photo Source @nasdaq #DontBelieveTheHype #Facts #Nov6th #2018elections #eleciones2018 #KnoweldgeisPower #Research #priorities #vote #voten #15thAmendment #ACLU #VotoLatino #UseYourVoice #WeThePeople
Who else has fallen into an extreme mental health break 🙋🏻♀️ I’m here to empathize !
Who’s resisted the urge to drown in every bachelor spin-off you can find Power to you, share what keeps you going below !
This post marks my intention to do better, one small action and day a time. So today, I contacted my senators to say rapists aren’t cool (paraphrase) and answered “yes” to the democratic group in my area who is seeking volunteers before the upcoming election. What’s your latest tiny act of resistance

Tag 178 // Wie ihr sehen könnt, sehr ihr... nichts 😅 das linke Foto ist gestern entstanden, das rechte heute. Heute wurde das erste Mal mein Expander "befüllt", jede Woche kommen nun 40ml pro Seite dazu, bis das maximale Volumen von 300ml erreicht ist. Momentan ist (zumindest in diesem Shirt) kein Unterschied zu sehen, nackt sehe ich allerdings schon eine kleine Veränderung 😊
Was mir besonders am Herzen liegt: es war meine bewusste Entscheidung, einen Brustaufbau machen zu lassen. Ich kann es mir für mich nicht vorstellen, ohne Brüste zu leben. Ich hatte meine Brüste immer gern und finde, dass sie zu meinem eher kurvigen Körper gepasst haben. Aber: es ist auch vollkommen in Ordnung, sich gegen einen Aufbau zu entscheiden. Wichtig ist, dass man selbst hinter der Entscheidung steht und niemanden sonst über seinen eigenen Körper entscheiden lässt. Nutzt eure Stimme, auch bei (einschüchternden) Gesprächen mit Ärzt*innen 💪🏽♀️! #useyourvoice #standupforyourself #doublemastectomy #expander #firstrefill
A mental roadblock has consumed my mind the past few weeks and I've had to come to terms that I couldn't just bulldoze through it any longer. .
It's okay to not be okay.
It's okay to ask for help.
It's okay to express your feelings.
Talk to a friend.
Talk to a mental health professional.
It's okay to pause.
Take it one day at a time.
Create short term goals.
Nurture your body.
Drink a lot of water.
Make sure you eat.
Stay close to the people who meet you right where you are and are offering to help you. We all need help at some point in our lives. This is YOUR time.
Xoxo - Kayla .

This picture is from last year 💜
I sure haven’t taken many pictures
With my girls over the last year but that shits ending real soon
New beginnings are scary and amazing all at the same time
Are a shit ton of lasts occurring over here
But on the flip side think of all the firsts that I’m going to experience 🧚🏻♂️ Girl time for me is going to be taken to a new level
My group will expand and it will shrink as I begin to surround myself with love 💜
But there’s one thing that’s for sure
This is the way it’s supposed to be
I nearly lost all of myself in the last year to fixing this marriage 🤷♀️ Never realizing I was supposed to let go a long time ago
Life is short and tomorrow’s not promised
Spend time with those who love you
Who appreciate you
And who would never let you go 💜

Today marks 4 years since my life was changed in an instant. I’ve lived in fear, I’ve felt shame, and people have tried to silence me. Not everyone has understood, but I am stronger now because of it.
Today is never easy, but I am no longer letting him stop me from becoming who I was meant to be. ♥️ #MeToo
If you think this is normal, you’ve got to re-evaluate your thinking. Our former Vice President caressing these little kids. Makes me sick to my stomach that someone like that first off isn’t even in jail, but number 2 was able to become our VP. If you feel some type of way about this, you have the power to make the change. You have the power to expose these types of people within our government. You have the power to spread this information, and you have the power to elect people to represent your moral values and ideologies. Time to stop these people and put them in jail. #getinformed #gooutandvote #vote #youhaveavoice #useyourvoice #searchfortruth
Ever thought about how to deliver a great speech Here are some things you can work on.
Research: There are two things to consider with research. Research the topic thoughly so you know all angles of it. Even if you have an opinion, know the other side as well. The second part of research is knowing your audience. Who are they, what do they believe What’s their demographic Research boosts your credibility.
Know your personal experience with the topic: What is your connection to the topic. Why do you connect with it and how does it affect you This boosts your relatability.
Assume your role as the guide: As a speaker you’re a guide. Make sure you talk about the current situation of your topic and why it needs to change. Then talk about what the desired situation is and empower the audience with the right tools to get there. Information + action.
Prepare, Prepare, Prepare: Now that you have all the raw materials, it’s time to practice. Don’t skip this step. Visualize yourself succeeding as you practice and practice in the environment you’ll be speaking in. If you can’t get to the environment, replicate the environment.
Now, go use your voice! If you have any more questions, leave a comment or DM me.

Proclaim your power! Own the fullness of your own being through the belltower of your body! A revolution is a return. Every human, at some point in their life, will be called to embark upon a personal revolution. If you answer the call, you will be forever transformed. Restoration Speakology is the practice of using your voice to find wholeness or to express your revolution of wholeness.

The only required course at @hamiltoncollege in the 1980’s was public speaking. I didn’t get it! And I dreaded it weekly. I lost sleep over it. For real. Standing in front of a group and speaking was an impossibility. What did I have to say as a teenager Why would I want to share what was on my mind, in my heart As I look back now, I understand why it was so difficult. My voice was stepped on and stripped from my being as a child. My kind of trauma can do that. It would take years for me to find it. I eventually did, with a lot of support and encouragement from incredible people. Gratitude to my alma mater for knowing how important THAT course was/is. A true gift! Never forget that YOU HAVE A VOICE. And YOU HAVE THE RIGHT to use it. Never let anyone or any #trauma take it away. #voice #useyourvoice #selfcare #strongwomen #womenempowerment #women #metoo
I am exhausted, but for all the right reasons.
I am exhausted because I have been using my voice to tell my stories. To stand up for myself. To educate. To connect and to build.
I have been gone from instagram for a few months now - life was happening, and I also wasn't 100% sure what I wanted to use this platform for. But in the last few weeks I have taken up opportunities to use my voice for good, and not only have I remembered how good it feels, but I have been met with unwavering support from those involved.
So I'm back, and after I take a nap, I'm ready to roar ✊🏼 Art by the ever talented @ericawexler 💜

No question is off the table.
I want you to know exactly what it means to be a Clean Beauty Boss, and more importantly, WHY this business model was chosen to clean up the industry.
Bring your questions, I’ll bring answers👊🏻
The next time you are struggling stop and remind yourself....in this moment that you are growing and that growth is going to give you something you didn’t have before.
Without the struggle our opportunity for learning and change might be missed.
In the haze of our struggle it can be so easy to turn towards failure and miss the learning opportunity. Some where “the struggle” received a bad rap. That is just a disguise for our ego. When it comes to growth there is not a lot of room for our ego.
The truth is we all struggle. It’s not a competition, you don’t get extra points for struggling more than others. When we appoint ourselves as judges our struggles will always seem more superior, so why do we entertain the comparison game. Chalk it up to what it really is...we each struggle in our own ways and on different levels.
Our struggle is what we make it. Do you need to work towards recognizing the opportunity or do you need to push aside your ego
