Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored ❤️❤️❤️ #family#uncle#siblings#timeforfamily#happy#ramify#lovethem#nina
Isabelle: “Let’s go see the fawingos.”
Me: “Close enough.” This past weekend I had my niece, Isabelle, with me up in Calgary.
Isabelle and her twin brother get to do a trip to Vancouver with me now that they’re 5. This was a “practice trip”. Turns out I could’ve saved myself a pile of money, skipped @thecalgaryzoo and just toured around the city spotting Lime scooters. 🤣 It’s the simple things in life. haha
Repost• @exposingthesociopath If you find yourself engaging in any of these behaviors please know that you are in a toxic family environment. The only way to change these dynamics from becoming generational or break the generation pattern is to get honest, get away, and do the work to heal. #Repost@courtneyjburg
Many of you are beginning to plan for the holidays. And that means many of you are already feeling the anxiety build up inside.
Here’s your reminder:
You don’t have to drag your children to a (late) meal where uncle Joey will be trashed again just because he’s “family.”
You don’t have to sit through brunch with your mother as she lectures you about breastfeeding + all the mothering choices you missed the mark on or why you’re not married or doing “X” yet just because she’s “family.”
You don’t have to look the other way or bite your tongue when your sister tosses that passive aggressive comment your way (again) because she’s “family.”
You don’t have to dress up, smile, and act as if your brother in law isn’t high or your aunt isn’t cheating on your uncle again over pumpkin pie, just because “they are family.”
You certainly don’t have to defend yourself, your healing, your sanity, and your choices now with folks who don’t get you, don’t support you, and may never... just because they are “family.” And you don’t have to spend weeks emotionally gutted after because you exhausted yourself for the sake of all the hallmark holiday pressure BS that never seems to unfold as you expected or hoped, again.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s this: God provides us a nurturing family that may (or may not be) blood related. Spend your energy + time wisely friends. We only have one shot at this life, and turkey shouldn’t change a damn thing. ♥️🙏🏼

Je n'ai pas d'enfant, n'en veux pas pour le moment, et n'en n'aurai peut-être jamais. Cependant, sans vouloir être bateau, j'aime tous les enfants de la Terre. Parce qu'un enfant est innocent, guidé par l'instinct et ne peut être mauvais. Il ne sait pas ce que sont le racisme, la haine, l'égoïsme, la soif de pouvoir. Tous ces défauts lui sont transmis par la "société". Si nous étions tous restés de grands enfants, ce monde aurait probablement été une bien plus belle aire de jeux... Il y a déjà tellement d'enfants qui ne demandent qu'à être aimés ou qui souffrent (Malnutrition, abandons, violences...). Ces petits bouts de chou sont notre avenir. Je pisse à la raie de ceux qui se permettent de les oublier ou de leur laisser un monde de merde sans scrupule.

Even though you usually cry when you see me, I still know we will be best buddy's one day. ❤ #uncle

you took half of my mom’s heart today, it got buried with you.
i hope you finally get some sleep, i know how much u need it.
I really can’t talk about what actually happened today and how did the funeral go. I just can’t. Let’s just say i’m glad this day is over. Still feels like i’m in a real terrifying movie and i will wake up soon, just like i thought u would. Will forever miss and remember you, always. I honestly don’t wish this to happen to anyone. In times like this is when u actually learn the value and the power of family. Please cherish every second, every minute, every hour, every day, every moment. Love your family, your brother, your uncle, your sister, your auntie, your lover, your mistress, your pops, your momma... all your loved ones. Please be more conscious, act before it’s too late. Don’t make urself regret things you could’ve done and u didn’t bc of a dumbass excuse.
Your memory will stay alive, and will try to keep mom alive i promise. I miss u and love you 💔
