Please Read: Help for Dawn

aesop1-2x.jpg


I’m sad to report that only myself and my friend Cheryl, who did the majority of the work putting this together for our friend, have donated. I do not normally get involved in things like this, but Dawn means so much to me and honestly, her situation at present moment makes me cry.


My friend Cheryl and I have been blog friends these last few months with a beautiful soul, a proud transgender woman named Dawn, who resides in Florida.

Dawn is going through some extremely hard times right now, as she is homeless and has several chronic health conditions. Because we both love and care for her, we have decided to team up and create a GoFundMe account for her.

If you’d like to donate (any amount is appreciated!) please click here.

If you are unable to donate, we’re asking if you could please share this on Facebook, Twitter or a reblog.

I was the first to donate, $10 is all that I can spare right now. I only wish that I could help her more.

Nobody belongs on the streets. If we can all pitch in a bit, we might be able to offer this inspiring and lovely human being some much needed hope.

Thank you.

Lessons Learned

lessons

A true friend has two main jobs; to love and then protect you from the things that they know will cause you pain. If they can’t do these simple things for you, then they’re not really your friends.

Not everyone is born with empathy.

Learn the difference between a sincere apology and a passive aggressive one.

Once you truly love yourself for who you are, flaws, baggage and all, you’ll find a world filled with gratitude and possibilities.

The only way to grow as a person is to face your demons head on and allow yourself to run the gamut of natural human emotions, with the knowledge that you’ll come out stronger for it in the end.

We are all survivors of our traumas, not victims.

It’s never too late to rewire your brain.

As softhearted as you might be, don’t tolerate any kind of bullshit from anyone.

You have the right to decide who you want to be in your life or not. It’s called free will.

It’s fucking impossible to have an adult conversation with an idiot. Don’t waste your time or energy sparring with someone like that, just eat a cookie instead.

Try not to let the cruelty of the world harden your heart and make you afraid to love deeply and strongly.

Regardless of the old saying, sometimes you really do need to burn a few bridges.

I recommend Acme Dynamite.

Keeping your cool is one of the most powerful weapons that you can have in your arsenal.

Pick your battles wisely, because life isn’t meant to be spent constantly pissed off about something trivial.

Not everyone you meet in life is meant to stay forever. When you feel that the relationship is no longer healthy for you, try to accept it the best that you can and then move on.

Don’t give someone permission to judge your journey or try to knock you off of your mountain. Remember, you’ve worked your ass off to get up there and you deserve to see the view without any barriers.

If someone tries to trip you because you’re running gleefully away from your old ways, antiquated views and stagnant life, just laugh it off.

They fucking hate that.
