Safe Haven is giving a grateful shout out of thanks today to donor Karl Stemler for the smorgasbord of much needed medical supplies and toys from our Amazon Wish List for our kids with disability! Catheter syringes, gauze, antibiotic ointment, breathing exerciser and critical thinking game! There is still plenty of time to help us fill up as many suitcases as possible with supplies. Every item is needed! Thank you for all your support. Link in bio! #kids#nonprofit#makeadifference#donorschoose#yes#getinvolved#disability#giveback
I’m doing another boudoir shoot next week and it’s been fun to reflect on my first from 2017.
Honestly, without the #hhhgirls and particularly @taylorwster, @stephaniepope7, @didifs7, @efaganfit, @glutesandgreens and @lauramegb - I wouldn’t be the person I am today and I wouldn’t have been brave enough to do this!
I’m excited for the next one because I have come an even longer way this year and I’m starting to understand and work with my body.
Even though it’s still hard and I’ll always be in recovery. I’ll always be disabled. I’m more me than ever before in my life.
And I’m so thankful.

WOW ... Akilah just got engaged! Our Special Strong family is so excited for you! Congratulations, Akiliah :)
This is my “fuck yeah it’s too cold get me back to Aus” face.... augh, who else is struggling with the cold?!? For me it goes beyond just feeling cold though. I tend to notice my disability a lot more when it is winter and snowy and icy. Wearing a prosthetic leg means I have virtually no ability to feel the subtlety of movement - say from beginning to slip on ice - to actually then correct myself in time. This means that my chances of slipping in snow and ice is greater than an able bodied persons. It means I can end up feeling very isolated during the colder months and feel extreme anxiety when I do have to go out in colder/freezing conditions.... plus, I’m Aussie, I basically just want to be warm 😂😂😂 #disability#disabilityawareness#disabilitypride#livedexperience#listen#winter#disabilityactivist
Today is the day #womensmarch takes place all around the world and it reminds me of that saying "women need to stick together!" Which I'm all for, but please remember us who aren't physically able to march, our voices matter as much as yours even if we can't be there. Include us in the conversation, help raise awareness of the importance of inclusion, support us when we need to fight for our rights and most importantly treat us like human beings ✊🏻 #womenempowerment#disability#inclusion#girlpower
I realise this is an illustration of an illiostomy not a suprapubic, but I really love the whole vibe! Lately I’ve seen small Etsy shops making tubie covers to make the entry point look nicer and there are people who make little bears with tubes like ours, to give to younger ones with similar conditions. I’m so excited by that! I love that there are these amazing people out there normalising these issues and taking the stigma and shame away for all of us! #firstname.lastname@example.org
صاحب این مغازه در پورتیسهد، شهری نزدیک بریستول در انگلستان، بعد از اینکه انتشار عکس ویتریناش توسط یک هنرمند، در فضای مجازی با استقبال و تحسین مخاطبان، وایرال شد، که در آن یک لباس عروس زیبا، بر تن مانکنی نشسته بر روی ویلچیر به نمایش گذاشته شدهبود؛ گفت فکر نمیکردم کار من و همکارم کاری جدید در دنیا باشد...فکر میکردم همه میدانند که معلولین هم جزئی از جامعه ما هستند که در همه زیباییهای زندگی، دقیقا مثل ما شریکاند و نهتنها عروسخانمها از دیدن یک عروس نشسته بر ویلچیر، از این لباس دوری نمیکنند، بلکه از خریدن آن با خوشحالی استقبال میکنند.
عکس متعلق به صفحه رسمی BBC است و ابتدا "بث ویلسون" آن را عکاسی و در صفحه توئیترش منتشر کردهاست.

You are the author of your own life. You get to choose who the other characters are and how much or how little they appear in the story.
Some days it can be hard to remember how much control we really do have over the outcomes in life. Just never forget that you ultimately determine the plot line.
There may be times when someone else takes over the writing for a while (I know this has happened when I've been in a coma or in surgery and some amazing medical professionals were writing the script for me). But since you can't rewrite past events, never forget that the future is yours to publish.
Very nice, @lisacox.co! Keep sharing your thoughts! 👍🏻 👍🏻 👍🏻
#10yearchallenge What a difference 10 years makes right?! It’s cool to go back & see how much you’ve transformed yourself physically & mentally & emotionally! I clearly have changed!👀 my hair used to be so short & posh.💇🏻♀️Also I hadn’t been in the chair for that long so I was still getting used to this lifestyle, but you can see some sassiness & strength! I was trying hard to move FORWARD! (That was my first wheelchair after the hospital, which was NOT fitted properly, way too big…🤦🏽♀️) So I didn’t just transform myself but my wheelchair also had somewhat of a transformation!♿️☺️
On the left I had just gotten back to college. I went to school in Northern California & I wasn’t sure where I wanted to live but I knew I had a lot of dreams & goals & that I wanted to live in a bigger city where I could pursue more things!🙌Graduating from College with the highest honors IS something I’m most proud of!! It was SO hard, but I did it!!👊 Now I feel blessed to be here in LA pursuing more dreams & goals! That’s why I had not been on here the last few days 🙈because I was working hard on a very special project that I’m so SO excited about & I can’t wait to share more details with all of you!!🤩
Please be patient with yourself! That’s something we all need to hear sometimes. Nothing happens overnight, but everything IS possible!!👊 you just have to keep pushing forward & keep believing!! Love you guys!!!❤️
Comment below your thoughts!👇 Please share with me what your #transformation has been like!⬇️ Has your transformation been more physical, or mental, or both?
•Shout out to the Tilite team, now part of @permobilmanual For being so amazing & for helping me always with my wheelchair!🤗
Que diferencia hacen 10 años verdad? Es interesante ver la diferencia y como se transforma uno, no solo físicamente sino mental y emocionalmente también! mi silla ♿️ también tuvo una transformación😂- a la izquierda, no tenía mucho de estar en ♿️ apenas acostumbrándome a este nuevo estilo de vida pero se puede ver la fuerza!😉 Acababa de regresar a la universidad! No sabía a donde me mudaría pero si sabía que a una ciudad más grande para lograr más!🙌
