What Happens If I Make a Mistake in Life | Yoleen Naidoo

For you to live this valuable life, you must believe in yourself. Accept that you can make bad decisions.  Accept that you get another chance.  Accept that you will do better next time and if not, you will be given another chance.  Work hard in life and grow.  Never forget we live in a world of GRACE which means we get another chance. Grace gives us the chance to start again without a past.  Leave the past, let it go, forgive yourself and move on.

Women and Climate Justice | Monica Bassilli

Taking care of our communities is essential – it cannot always be delegated to the government. With time, local movements and organizations can change how we view our neighbours and work to support one another. Considering the increased climate disasters in Western Canada from wildfires and drought, Albertans will not be immune to climate disasters. Thus, being well-prepared and conscious of the community you live in is vital to staying healthy and safe.

Acknowledge that, accept that and be grateful to yourself then you will see how your confidence will start to rise. 

As a gift to you today and as a little help on your journey for strengthening your mind I have created a free app. to help you. 

The first thing you should do in the morning is to affirm your day.  The reason we affirm our day is to remind ourselves who we truly are.  At least repeat the affirmation minimum of 30 times each time 4 times a day.

Bill S-204: Why You Should Care

Racialized Senators and Members of Parliament should not be the only ones concerned with exploiting racialized peoples across the globe. With this in mind, there is a greater need to accept the colonial and imperial consequences of the past century and reflect on its influence on today’s migration patterns. Unfortunately, the typical response is to assume that people from impoverished nations are incapable and incompetent, leading to less attention from Western countries like Canada.

If we ignore the effects of poverty, racism, and sexual exploitation worldwide, there is a slight chance that laws such as Bill S-204 will pass. With this in mind, it is valuable to send a message to your members of Parliament and encourage them to voice their support for Bill S-204.

Les Femmes et la Francophonie Albertaine

Les Femmes et la Francophonie Albertaine

Quand j’ai habité à Vancouver, ça semblait qu’il y avait plus d’opportunités francophones. Une raison importante est la connexion avec les immigrants francophones et les peuples Indigènes. Les deux groupes ont un problème systémique ainsi que la colonisation qui se transmet autour du monde. Donc, l’anglais et le français sont les langues primaires selon les immigrants et peuples Indigènes.

Francophone Alberta and Migrant Women |Monica Bassili

Today, the Francophonie Albertaine Plurielle, Accès Emploi, and the African Center are the only companies that support African and Francophone migrants. So governments must provide the investment in francophone services and programs in Edmonton. Not only for women but for all French-speaking migrants who import their identity, culture, and religions to Canada.

Sexy but Psycho – Exploring the Depths of “Mental Illness” | Monica Bassili

Trauma-informed refers to a focus on the social and environmental implications of an individual, instead of assuming a chronic chemical imbalance in the brain and prescribing medication. A trauma-informed approach primarily concerns a strengths-based, non-pathologizing, and non-victim-blaming approach based on the social model of mental wellbeing. In this way, the experiences of violence, trauma, and abuses perpetrated against women and sexual minorities are the catalysts of poor coping mechanisms and trauma responses.

For instance, a woman may self-harm due to repeated inflictions of sexual and physical violence. In such cases, there is no chronic chemical imbalance in the brain that suddenly appeared, instead, the experience is a trauma-response in which the woman feels calmer when self-inflicting abuses have already been inflicted on her previously. This is just one example of why an individual would self-harm. It is important to note that every individual will have a different answer, different reasons, and different sensations when self-harming.

Elective Surgery | Post Covid by Jacqueline Biollo, MBA, ICD.D

I applaud the emphasis the health profession has put on assessing the impact of COVID-19, the selflessness front-line medical workers have shown during these unprecedented times, the overall consideration of when and how to safely resume elective surgeries, and how to prioritize patients. The myriad of problems facing the health care system does not have simple solutions, but it does deserve efficient and focused effort to seek and implement some.
