Yesterday was Make your Dreams Come True Day! If you have been procrastinating on fulfilling your dream, 2020 is your chance to get things right! Make your dreams come true!
Find that thing that moves your heart and soul, and do more of that. Writing.. Creating.. philanthropy & charity.. learning a new skill! Today is your gift! How are you going use it? Don't wait for the perfect time, create it.
I'm going to be honest.. I used to think "when I" (fill in the blank) have enough £££, gain skills, have X circumstance perfect.. then I'll be able to X, Y, Z! Well I had news for me because newsflash!.. NOTHING is ever perfect and that's the entire point! You learn as you grow. You develop more as you embrace how under developed you are in a certain areas of your life.
It's progress.. it's life.. push those obstacles aside and find that one thing you CAN do. Do that.. do more of that and soon enough you are further along than you ever dreamed of. Dreams don't work unless we do!.. Carpe diem baby 🌌🎉🙌

CLEAN AIR REVOLUTION 🌬🖤
I am a natural light photographer but i also practice Art which is inspired by current pressing #environmental issues.
#Art was created by using a #recycled Sheet, I created #poster like images from my own portraits and printed them using recycled ink cartridges then attached them to my window.
Took a piece of recycled cotton sheet, placed over the top & traced the images using natural light.
Solar energy is a renewable source which is freely available to us.
Using INK made from #airpollution I then created each piece of art.
These pieces are in a way also a historical reference as our times are slowly changing to embrace clean #renewable energy sources.
CLEAN AIR REVOLUTION
9x Portrait Series. 🌬
The reason i chose 9x portraits symbolically is because 9x out of 10x people worldwide Breathe Polluted Air.
#AirPollution hurts the planet with increasingly deadly effects on life, the United Nations Environment warns, calling on countries to take measures to usher in a #greener, cleaner and more #sustainable future." #UnitedNations*
5x #Portraits are taken from my own personal portrait photography they are #females which represent the Rise of New Fresh Female #Leaders. #WomenEmpowerment.
#LeonardoDicaprio for his Environmental Work & Climate Activism.
#AntónioGuterres United Nations Secretary-General for his work to Increase Climate Action.
#CheGuevara, #Revolutionary, Activist, two of his famous quotes i think relate to this pressing issue. "The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall.” “The life of a single human being is worth a million times more than all the property of the richest man on earth.”
#LeonardoDaVinci, Leonardo Da Vinci's designs helped us to invent things like the tank, parachute, helicopter and many other things. He was also a very talented artist. This represents the #Science, #Ingenuity and #Creativity needed in tackling such a pressing global issue.

If you were to sit across from YOU 5x years from now, what would you want to know?
A. Your bank account balance; B. Whether you achieved the success you crave; or C. If you found the love of your life yet?
I would definitely go for all three! A,B & C 😜 because.. I can’t wait to stop living so much by my paycheck! ;) I have BIG dreams 🌌 & I look forward to love 💞
Of course, no matter what I tell myself I know that money, success & love are all readily available to all of us. We all have equal opportunities.. money doesn't define success anymore than true love can be bought with a price tag.
Living a rich life is a state of mind. I know that I'm valuable, worthy of love & every day I wake up to life I'd call that a success!
So, what would you ask?

When things just become the norm.. first a “harmless” bit of fishing rope next we have sperm whales beached and washed up with stomachs full of plastic. This is serious and it’s an emergency. Waste management has never been more important but I feel that we need political leaders willing to take these matters very seriously and actively look to implement change across the board.
We need leaders who will take action. We need leaders to be there for us and also our planet! To tackle the serious issues we all face and create change.
For future generations. YL

I've been highlighting how important Whales are recently with my FB posts, we've had multiple sperm whale deaths just off the UK coastlines this year... to the point! WHALES are an amazing and magnificent species and also have now been proven to help combat climate change by sequestering carbon.
The right whale in particular (i realised only recently from watching a Sir David Attenborough documentary) are probably some of the the most FRIENDLY of the Whale species out there.. known for their calm natures.
They got their name from Whalers looking to hunt them, they called them "Right Whales" because they were regarded as the "right ones to hunt" they float when killed and often swim within sight of the shoreline. They are also docile and didn't shy away from the whaling boats."
☆North Atlantic right whales are on the verge of extinction. Only about 400 remain☆

Gender equality is no5 of the United Nations sustainable development goals.
“Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Unfortunately, at the current time, 1 in 5 women and girls between the ages of 15-49 have reported experiencing physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner within a 12-month period and 49 countries currently have no laws protecting women from domestic violence. Progress is occurring regarding harmful practices such as child marriage and FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), which has declined by 30% in the past decade, but there is still much work to be done to completely eliminate such practices.
Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large. Implementing new legal frameworks regarding female equality in the workplace and the eradication of harmful practices targeted at women is crucial to ending the gender-based discrimination prevalent in many countries around the world.”
Happy International Day of Persons with Disabilities! 🎉
💙Observed by the United Nations.
I'm lucky enough to work with and have met a lot of special people. People i have come to know in our local community and people who I can also call friends.
My job as a support worker quite literally changed my life 9x years ago and I know all the girls I work with currently and guys I've met along the way who also do this role will completely agree that we all LOVE our roles as support workers! ☆
Just because a man lacks the use of his eyes doesn’t mean he lacks vision.”

What were you like as a kid? I was a tomboy and that really shaped me. I’ll always treasure how my dad fought to get me into the scouts after I begged and begged him to go. Turned out my dad was a softie and managed to leverage it and so.. I was the first ever girl scout in my area!
It turned out that wanting to get involved in the kinda outdoor activities the scouts were known for helped me develop skills in knot making (cause that’s a life skill right!) specifically reef knots are my “one and only” fancy knot skills. I also kayaked the River Wye, went climbing, mountaineering & my fave! survival camps! (Not quite Bear Grylls but was darn close!) 🤣 Without that, I don’t think I’d be the girl boss I am today! I love a challenge! What shaped you most during your childhood? 🚣♂️🧗♀️🚴♀️🤸♀️📸

It was a privilege working and meeting Chris & Di as a volunteer photographer on behalf of Mencap Cymru's "Our Social Networks" project.
This project is about history and nature of friendships and intimate relationships experienced by people with a learning disability living in Wales today.
I learned about Chris & Di's journey, how they met each other and fell instantly in love. I was moved at how they both were gushing with affection for each other.
On a couple of these photos they are pictured outside the door Di's old residence a ground floor flat which has now been turned into a cafe, this is now the rear entrance.
She said that they'd often meet around there when they were both courting. They both affectionately reminisced about their first encounters, falling in love and getting married.
