the activist

A few years ago my best friend gifted me a subscription to Yoga Journal. Who knows ya’ better than a bff! And in this mag was Seane Corn, who I’d never heard of before seeing her in YJ. What a beauty. Yes, I did notice her outward beauty but also her strength and how much she is accomplishing. Her story, from tipsy bartender to yoga expert with Off the Mat, is inspiring. I’m learning more and more how important our individual stories are. So I began to follow her on Instagram. She has this wonderful, peace serving foundation called Off the Mat Into the World and I’ve been touched by her first hand accounts from Standing Rock.

Am I an activist? No. But I do have a voice & just like donating to the cause – no amount, or voice, is too small or too large. I’m drawn to what is going on at Standing Rock, as we probably all are. Too often I find myself focusing on mundane postings of cute dogs. These are distractions to what I feel is the bigger picture. Of course I love cute dogs and I love to post pics of my sweet Lovey. That’s life too. But I also want to do a part and share for more awareness, at least. Be the change, be the love.

The link above is directed straight to the website’s Call to Action for #StandingRock. Me personally, I cannot make a large donation but I feel any amount is significant. What I can do is share. So share I am.
