Revolutionary Love

in a Ted Talk of november 2017 mother, lawyer, filmmaker and civil rights activist Valarie Kaur talks about what I strongly feel and believe in, in a beautiful and powerful way. She also offers a down-to-earth message of hope by providing a revolutionary way of looking at what's going on in the world and how we can really change things.

'my life on the frontlines of fighting hate in America
has been a study in what I've come to call Revolutionary Love.' 
~ Valarie Kaur ~

'the love that binds us'

I received an e-mail with a link to an article about Zach Wahls speach in 2011, a speach I just watched. It reflects perfectly what I think life is about, what anything should be about, but too often is viewed upon in similar ways Zach describes. Love is all that matters and is almost always behind the issue people fear the most when looking at something they don't know.

it warms my heart to hear someone speak about it so clearly and eloquently again. Something I hope will happen more and more often. May it become clear once more that love is what we're all seeking and should never be mistaken for something else, out of fear for the unknown.

Happy New Year, may it be a year of L💗VE & acceptance, everywhere and in everything!

Much love 💗 Monique

small gestures, huge difference

I haven't done much at all or at least not nearly enough. I've done all that I could with what I had, it always touches my heart just that can make such a difference, combined with what others contribute as well. Combine enough waterdrops and you create an ocean right? A message that shows that love can be given and felt in so many ways

"love in times of hate
a bright light in times of darkness"

Much love ❤️ Monique

love in everyday life that warms your heart

despite what seems to be the only thing around, there's much love in the world. I've always seen the world as a beautiful place and one where there's much more love than there is hate. You 'just' have to look beyond the surface that might suggest the opposite. Our beautiful planet is filled with people who live with their hearts instead of from fear and worry. There are countless, but here are 10 examples of what that looks like, it will warm you heart, enjoy!

'the mask you live in'

I'd like to share a documentary that - to me anyway - has everything to do with love. I was told by someone it was really powerful and worth seeing and it is. It's about how men in American society (but applies to men worldwide I think to different degrees) are being raised and influenced and how this effects everything in profound ways, for them and the world we live in. Although much of it was not new to me, some stuff is and seeing it all together is telling a powerful and sometimes heartbreaking story.

'real love is the strongest stuff in the Universe'

I remembered a speech of Anthony ("Van") Jones at the Woman's March on the 21st of January this year that really touched me then and would like to share with you here.
