We're living in a society where women are influenced to believe that true beauty is in magazines, young teens believe that love automatically leads sex or the poor can't even receive a decent meal. Dear friends, we can change all this! We can step up with no cost at all and we can paint the streets with a new color of hope,faith and love! Let's change the negative and turn it into a positive beginning with a refreshing, yet challenging first step. Before we point our dirty fingers to another, let's let go of our old ways, and be who we're supposed to be. Lets begin with "the change in me". Feel free to start your own posts,polls or any creative way to reach out to another and to most importantly, SPEAK YOUR MIND! every opinion matters, it's what makes this world amazing.

So, I just came back from the gym and I wanted to talk about my little fierce experience.

I had a pilates class at 9am and I was there 4 mins early just so I could get a good spot in the class. The class was full of women in their 20s-40s. Some were tall,short,skinny,thick whatever it didn't matter to me! 30 mins into the whole hour exercise, we took a break to pair up with partners. The instructor counted our whole group and said "THERE IS AN EVEN AMOUNT OF PEOPLE IN THIS ROOM, SO GETTING IN GROUPS OF 2 SHOULD NOT BE HARD! THANK YOU!" I was looking around for someone who didn't have a partner yet but right when I felt that I was the last one left, I seen a woman in her mid 30s look at me, looked around, shook her head and walk out of the room.

I was so embarrassed! The whole class seen what happened. I was approached by one of the girls after class and she told me "She never works out with another race asides from her own. She even told her personal trainer to look for a person of her race or she'd have to reschedule til she gets one". It wasn't as shocking as I thought it would've been but the fact that it happened to me was shocking to myself. I didn't know how to react when I noticed her car was parked right behind mine..should i talk to her? should i look at her? i had no idea how to react!

The whole ride home, i kept thinking to myself, is it me? do i look unapproachable? I know I shouldn't think negative about myself, but come to think of it..what the hell just happened?

I finish 10 bottles of water every day and I collect my cans and bottles to recycle every month! It bugs me to see people throw their plastics/cans away when they should totally recycle! Not for cash purposes, but for the sake of the earth!

Let's try to cut back from our old habits and make a difference!

We may think that recycling is a little thing, but imagine how much and what you're saving!
