“Yes, love yourself. But also, analyze and be critical of how you think, act and behave. Self love without self-awareness is useless. Be accountable.” #riskhappy

“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality.. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning." - Joseph Campbell #riskhappy

“Healthy hustle: challenging yourself to grow, moving beyond comfort zones, values-driven commitment and pursuit, rising in the face of adversity, knowing when to rest and play.
Toxic hustle: grinding all day and night, prioritizing work above all else, scarcity-driven grasping and clinging, wearing productivity like a badge of honor, forcing outcomes at all costs.
The latter is often the result of a toxic culture or unaddressed fears about worthiness. (“If I achieve _____, I’ll be enough.”) It harms our physical and emotional health and leads to burn out.
I’ve danced in realm of toxic hustle and it didn’t propel me forward, bring me closer to my dreams, or help me get more done. It only held me back and made me sick.
In a culture of getting ahead and more/better/faster, taking care of yourself is a radical, and necessary, act.” - via @heyamberrae#riskhappy

“Singing with others is an unmediated, shared experience as each person feels the same music reverberating in their individual bodies. Singing is part of our humanity. It is embodied empathy.” - Jay Griffiths #riskhappy

“I say ‘sometimes’ because of course, this isn’t the case all of the time. Some people go through breakups and their heartache comes from losing a wonderful person. They’re unsure that they’ll ever meet anyone who can take that person’s place - and they feel lost without them.
But for many people, their emotions after a break up have little to do with how amazing the other person is. Their emotions have a lot to do with how they perceive themselves... The void created isn’t the problem. The problem is the impact of the break up on their self-esteem.
‘What’s wrong with me?’
‘How come they can’t see how wonderful I am?’
‘Why aren’t I enough for them?’
‘Why don’t they want me?’
‘Am I not as good as I think I am?’
‘Do they want someone better?’
Such questions aren’t about losing the love. They’re ego fuelled questions.
Where possible, try your very best to strip the ego away. Break ups are complex and sometimes they have absolutely nothing to do with how good or bad anyone is.
That’s why my first tweet uses the word ‘idea’. The idea you’re not good enough can sometimes come from yourself.
Try your very best to cast away your self doubts and during the healing process, take your time to understand the relationship for what it really was. Rather than how the break up made you feel. Try not to get so lost in ego and emotion that you innacurately asses yourself.
If you did something wrong that triggered the break up, stop beating yourself up over it and use your transgressions as lessons to guide change. You can’t alter the past but you can control how much you let it consume you. We all make mistakes. Just try to learn from them.
Ego can make our experiences much harder to manage than they need to be. Losing a love is never easy to deal with, but it’s even harder when your mind attaches your self-worth to that love.
Two people can be good, but just not good for each other. Remember that.” - via @t0nit0ne#riskhappy

From the Archives: 49 footprints, which were left nearly a million years ago by a small group of hominins walking along an English coastal estuary 140 miles northeast of London, are some of the oldest ever discovered outside of Africa.

Eng an den Rücken von Mama Hirphe und ihrer großen Schwester Ana geschmiegt, werfen die Zwillinge Ebise und Ebisa neugierige Blicke aus dem Tragetuch 💛Es ist viel los, vor dem Gesundheitszentrum in Bake Kelate: Viele Mütter sind heute mit ihren Kindern zum Untersuchungstag gekommen, den unser Gesundheitsteam gemeinsam mit den lokalen Behörden organisiert hat. Familien aus der ganzen Region wurden im Vorfeld darüber informiert, dass sie an diesem Tag ihre Kinder untersuchen und impfen lassen können und auch die Mütter beraten werden 👩⚕️ In unserem Jahresbericht 2018 könnt ihr jetzt ab Seite 18 nachlesen, warum Hirphe so froh über den Untersuchungstag ist ➡️Link in der Bio
Our feline friends are settling in quite nicely at our new community center in Pune; we don't mind the company at all, and they don't mind the food and hugs from everyone either!
Five years of heat waves, torrential rains, mosquitoes, rats eating their way through some of our items, water damage, no roads, and through it all we never lost track, hope or focus while literally working out of our backpacks, storing supplies in shacks and bearing tough conditions with each visit to our slum community in Pune.
The new rented space is just 700 square feet but is enough to provide a safe heaven to our kids and families and to operate more efficiently. Our education, family planning, birth control and social enterprise programs are now better streamlined, and clothes donations will be easier to handle and distribute!
None of this would have been possible without our team, this band of dreamers and awesome human beings who show up to work each time with fire in their hearts and solutions in their mind. And to every one of our supporters from all over the world: THANK YOU! This is a time to celebrate but also a time to strengthen our commitment to each other and to the families we are helping to overcome poverty. Now more than ever we need you by our side. A monthly donation of your choice will ensure that we can meet our financial obligations and continue to deliver our important work.
