#Remembering#SophieScholl , executed by the Nazis 77 years ago today in 1943, together with her brother Hans, co-founders of #TheWhiteRose , and fellow White Rose Christoph Probst, for their principled, non-violent, intellectual #resistance to fascism, has never been more #important given the current #global trends in #culture , #politics , and #society ... Arrested on 18 February, Sophie’s interrogation by the Gestapo was so brutal she was brought to her ‘trial’ on 21 February with a broken leg. The next day she and the others were found guilty, and executed by guillotine just a few hours after the verdict ... she was 21. Her last recorded words were: ‘Such a fine, sunny day, and I have to go... What does my death matter, if through us, thousands of people are awakened and stirred to action?’ Earlier in her activism she noted: ‘The real damage is done by those millions who want to 'survive.' The honest men who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes. Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves—or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature. Those who live small, mate small, die small. It’s the reductionist approach to life: if you keep it small, you’ll keep it under control. If you don’t make any noise, the bogeyman won’t find you. But it’s all an illusion, because they die too, those people who roll up their spirits into tiny little balls so as to be safe. Safe?! From what? Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn.’ (Sophie Scholl)

Swipe to see more ▶️ Riga ghetto museum is really interesting place to visit. 1st and 2nd photo is from house where lived around 30 people in that time. On the 3rd photo is part of sidewalk which is there since then and the wall is there to remember 70000 people who lived in the ghetto. 😰 On the last photo you can see the ghetto houses. Nowadays they use them as offices and little shops 🇱🇻 there is even shop with soya candles which are healthy (did you know that normal candles are really unhealthy and they cause cancer?) 👀

Alright, let’s get real...🙋🏽♀️
I’ve seen some of the fittest people in the world also be the most miserable, and vice versa!
For those who think all their problems will be solved once they lose the weight...
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this just simply isn’t the case.
If you aren’t happy in your head and heart pre-weight loss, things don’t magically fall into place once you shed some fat.
You will still be carrying emotional weight that requires more than consistent healthy eating and a gym routine.
It is never too late to start working on your mental and emotional health.
It’s challenging work, but also the most rewarding, that makes you lighter in more ways than one.
Everyone needs it one way or another, so what’s stopping you from starting your head & heart healing? ❤️🧠🙏🏽
🚨If you want your marriage to last…keep reading…
Alright, we all know marriage itself has enough of its own joys and trials to last a lifetime - but when you add kids into the mix…
You parents already know…the dynamic changes! And things increasingly get more and more difficult.
Some couples will say Kids. Come. First. 𝐀𝐋𝗪𝐀𝐘𝐒.
Yes, it’s an all-consuming job, and parents are expected to be more attentive and accommodating than ever.
Buttt…if you’re planning on having a long, happy, healthy marriage, your relationship with your spouse should 𝐀𝐋𝗪𝐀𝐘𝐒 come first.
You might be thinking, “How could you even think about putting your kids second!? It is our JOB as parents to care for their every need. They are dependent on us.”
Yes, yes, but hear me out…
With this mindset, parents end up getting stuck in a place where they continue to feel like their kids are the #1 priority even as they grow and become more independent.
A strong, loving marriage that is prioritized above all is the healthiest thing you can give your kids!!
Your kids feel safe and loved when they see two parents who work as a team, take interest in each other, and make a real effort, letting nothing and no one come before that.
Also, it teaches our children what a good partner looks like, and what they should be seeking when their time comes to find love.
Not to mention, when you make kids the center of your universe, they become obnoxious and turn into adults who think they’re the center of the universe! 🤦🏽♀️🙅🏽♂️
Need some ideas on ways to prioritize your partner?
-Ask them what is most important to them. What is their love language? What do they need from you to feel loved?
-Small, thoughtful gestures. Bring them coffee in bed. Leave a note in their car. Cook them their favorite meal.
-Make time for a regular date night, no matter how much you’ve got on your plate.
When your kids turn 18 and leave the nest, what will you and your spouse be left with? A marriage you nurtured or neglected?
So, how are you prioritizing your hunny? Leave a comment! 💑
This Valentine’s day and the one’s to come, is going to be more about self-love and care before anyone or anything else.
This day is just a reminder whilst the process of self-love and you, being an important part of someone’s life.
If you can love yourself enough, it’ll be much easier to love and understand your partner.
Virtual love and hugs to y’all 🌼
