Africa, Memes, and Oprah Winfrey: Oprah Winfrey on Getting Pregnant After Being Raped By A Family Member At 14: "I Wouldn't Have Been a Good Mom for Babies 33 @balleralert Oprah Winfrey on Getting Pregnant After Being Raped By A Family Member At 14: “I Wouldn’t Have Been a Good Mom for Babies” - blogged by: @msjennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1968, at the age of 14, OprahWinfrey gave birth to a premature baby boy who died in the hospital weeks later. For years, the media mogul withheld her story to protect herself from the judgment of others. However, when the news broke in 1990 of her pregnancy and subsequent loss, after the initial feeling of devastation and betrayal, Winfrey finally felt free. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, almost 50 years since giving birth after having been raped by a family member, Winfrey reveals that she’s completely okay with the fact that she doesn’t have any children of her own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I didn’t want babies. I wouldn’t have been a good mom for babies,” Winfrey said in the April Issue of GoodHousekeepingUK. “I don’t have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that’s a quick stage!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Instead, Winfrey says she already a mother figure to the “world’s children” in her Leadership Academy boarding school in Johannesburg, South Africa. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When people were pressuring me to get married and have children, I knew I was not going to be a person that ever regretted not having them because I feel like I am a mother to the world’s children,” she said. “Love knows no boundaries. It doesn’t matter if a child came from your womb or if you found that person at age two, 10 or 20. If the love is real, the caring is pure and it comes from a good space, it works.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It is more rewarding than I would ever have imagined,” Winfrey said of the school. “I was doing this to help them, but it has brought a light to my life that I can’t explain,” she added.

Drone, Memes, and Drones: TRYING START A RACE WAR WERE TRyNG TO END ONE The difficulty is that I've always cared, But been hiding away from what I feel For a long time I was lost out there Consuming death but still hungry life's meal Time and distance are related still Waiting for travel from sleep to consciousness Waking to see a world full of ills It's like a constant signal of distress I was blind but now I see the mess Time was kind to me I must confess Most never find themselves from wickedness They slumber deep ignorance protests Materialism keeping souls & egos at contest Their pride will profess that inside all is bless But you've regressed to a selfish incest It's only in pain in which you now invest You never took time to heal you just repressed You won't progress you'll stay depressed Because you know that you're lying Your inner self is crying stop denying Superficial is trying to show how much your buying But your mind is sighing while it's heart is dying. It's this fake reality we have been told to protect But you can't achieve parity choking intellect It all this vanity you think you love but interject We are all in the same ship of disrespect The iceberg of truth will sink the misinformation Without hesitation I'm patiently waiting For all to awaken I'm tired of frustration Society is vacant I'm still in amazement How we're still adjacent to justification For murdering nations and more devastation So we can keep up this blissful facade That everyone's ok not emotionally scarred Health disorders, more borders and bars Countless Hors d'oeuvre, immigrants barred I'm having difficulty pretending that this is life is for me Condemning military drones while I have an iPhone Made from the materials that enslave children Because they are brown it's okay that we kill them We still consume, handing them life sentences We go to the moon but build more fences I'm not sure if you are reading this while waking up Or you will remain asleep and stuck Or you are woke but your action is nothing As we sell our purpose do we gain something? chakabars

A Dream, Curving, and Memes: 2011 2016 Meet @hashi88 I have always been overweight since childhood. Even through high school I struggled with my weight and had self image issues. During my first year of university I tried to change my eating habits to lose weight but had less or no motivation at all. With the stresses of university I ate really bad and continued to struggle with my weight. I have always wanted to dress nicely and have the curves to show off, but because of my overweight body it seemed a dream. Then one day a friend upload a group photo with me in it on Facebook , and I got really bad comments on my figure and how overweight I was. I was devastated and had a emotional breakdown. After that I decided to fully commit to losing the weight, so started eating healthy and going to the gym 6 days a week. After 10 months of fully committed to the diet and training, I lost 42 kgs. This change in my body further motivated me to keep going. I started to dress nicely and loved to show my new curves. This added further to my motivation. I trained harder and became stronger and fitter. Currently my goal is set on competing next year and inspiring others with my journey. My ultimate motivation is the results I see within myself and that itself is my inspiration.💙💙💙 fitlife fitnessaddict fitness beforeandafter weightlossjourney weightloss transformation inspire bodypositivefitness shesquats training weightlossinspiration inspiration selflove beastmode justdoit beastmodeon traininsane transformyourbody fitnessinspiration strongissexy strong muscles fitfam fatloss fattofit newme

Memes, Muslim, and Target: @undocumedia HAD No SA OMER WHAT SIDE OF THE BORDER I WAS BORN ON, BUTIDO CETTo DECIDE WHAT SIDE OF HISTORY I STAND ON TO STA @IvanCejatv, cofounder-executive director @undocumedia "There is no denying that Donald Trump and his administration seek to target the most vulnerable in our communities. This includes the undocumented immigrant community, the LGBTQ+ community, the black community, the muslim community, women's rights, and this planet that we rely on for survival. Somewhere there is an undocumented immigrant that is fearful of what the future looks like and is resorting to going deeper into the shadows that have oppressed us for too long. ImmigrantsMakeAmericaGreat There are countless individuals that question whether they can come out of the closet at this point because they are fearful for their lives. Some of them being our very own brothers, sisters, cousins and closest friends. LoveIsLove The trans community has lost too many lives and we cannot afford to lose another as hate crimes are on the rise. TransLivesMatter We must put an end to islamophobia, because nobody's dignity should be compromised. NoMuslimRegistry Overspending on prisons continues and this will only further devastate our present circumstances and future generations. SchoolsNotPrisons Far too many people continue to live without access to health care because we continue to put politics before the dignity and well-being of human lives like yours and mine. Health4All Climate change is real and corporate interests should not dictate what is considered harmful to our planet and permissible. WaterIsLife We are wary that the fight ahead of us challenges our existence and the odds seem stacked against us. However, we will resist, we will organize, we will inform, we will advocate, and we will stand by each and every one of you. We have nothing to lose but our chains, and fear is the greatest chain of them all. Let's break these chains that oppress us and say it loud, " HERETOSTAY by any means necessary." ✊🏾💯 . resistj20 notmypresident womensmarch sacramento blacklivesmatter losangeles california

Memes, The Voice, and Chinese: NEVER GIVE UP!!! There's an old Chinese saying that says "The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed." I found this to be extremely true. That first year in a new business is always extremely challenging. You set off with the greatest of intentions & high hopes only to find the reality of the real world slapping you around. Failure after failure, things taking longer than expected, & always needing more capital causes massive heartburn & many sleepless nights. At many points I wanted to give up & I thought about quitting on a daily basis. When I first started my educational company Clever Investor I used the money that I made off of real estate investing to live off while I got Clever off the ground. I thought it may take up to six months when in reality it took 2 full years before I ever made a profit. Imagine not making a penny on a business for two full years & every day that goes by the voices around you get louder & it becomes harder to convince yourself to continue on. But I did & just when I started to make a profit & take a paycheck an independent contractor that we hired to set up our Infusionsoft accidentally erased all the credit card data in our system & I lost 100% of my business overnight. It was a devastating blow to the biz. I've bombed on dozens of webinars, choked on live TV, wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars on projects that failed, hired the wrong people who stole money from me, & had many instances where I had to stop taking a paycheck in order to make payroll. You want to be an entrepreneur, this is the reality. Fortunately for me on the other side of thoughts about quitting was a glimmer of hope. A fear of failure & a need to prove everybody wrong that propelled me forward. As I reflect back on those challenging moments I'm thankful for my mentors, friends, & family members that did support me & gave me the encouragement to keep moving forward. I'm thankful that I trusted my gut instincts despite what hurdles and challenges were being thrown at me. Success truly is right on the other side of hard times and I'm telling you from personal experience it's the greatest feeling in the world once you achieve it.
