My job is simple, yet complicated: I feed people who are overcoming addiction and/or mental illness 4 times a day. I am a recovering addict myself, and suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder. It is rewarding to give back to the people who helped get my life back, and it is a challenge to teach them through practice how to properly nourish their bodies (something we are often times completely ignorant about). I thank God everyday for putting me here, and keeping me here. ¤ This photo is from yesterday's lunch service, the last I had with the best friend, and loyal assistant I've made here - Angel Zarate. Best wishes on your coming adventures, brother! #cheflife#truecooks#cookmorebitchless#rehab#rehablife#mentalhealth#bpd#chefatwork#service#humility#dedication#sacrifice#vidadechef#sinyolanda#rehabilitacion#enlaclinica#saludmental#trabajando#servicio#humildad#dedicacion#sacrificio Mi trabajo es simple y complicado a la vez: alimento a personas que estan superando enfermedades mentales y/o adicciones. Yo soy un adicto en recuperación, y sufro de Desorden de Personalidad Limítrofe. Es una verdadera satisfacción ayudar a las personas que me han ayudado a recuperar mi vida en su recuperación, así como un reto educarles sobre como nutrirse adecuadamente a través de la práctica diaria. Agradezco a Dios cada día por ponerme y mantenerme aqui. ¤ Esta foto fue durante el servicio de comida de ayer, el último con el mejor amigo, y leal asistente, que hice aquí - Ángel Zárate. ¡Te deseo la mejor de las suertes en tus aventuras!

Our Daily Bread |16.12.18| Mirrors and Hearers There's this joke about the Bible, especially when it is described as the Basic Information Before Leaving Earth, which is some what true, for many Christians. For many of us, the Bible serves as both a benchmark and a mirror that we assess our behaviour. Like any mirror, it reflects our flaws, strength and everything in between. Hence, the Bible helps us to examine our character, attitude, thoughts, and behavior (James 1:23–24). This enables us to align our lives according to the principles of what God has revealed. We will “keep a tight rein” on our tongues (v. 26) and “look after orphans and widows” (v. 27). We will pay heed to God’s Holy Spirit within us and keep ourselves “from being polluted by the world” (v. 27). When we look attentively into “the perfect law that gives freedom” and apply it to our lives, we will be blessed in what we do (v. 25). As we look into the mirror of Scripture, we can “humbly accept the word planted in [us]” (v. 21) ~Duncan Source:ODB.org #ourdailybread#sunday#wisdom#everlasting#peace#mercy#faith#trust#mirrors#humility#james#thanksgiving#grace#hope#praise#prayer ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~We are strong together as one Let no men or devil take this strength away from us! But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it. James 1:25 NLT
When we don't develop a healthy relationship with ourselves, we're likely to infuse toxic elements into our emotional, spiritual, and physical development. * Through the lens of self-absorption, we'll hunger for external validation, and the only priority in life will become ourselves. * Because we were each made in His image, we shouldn't despise our own reflection, but this also means that we mustn't become enamored by it either. * So, what's the point of today's post? Beloved, there's a fine line between having a healthy dosage of self-esteem and arrogance. Please, don't cross it. PS: Please excuse this rather delayed upload because it doesn't align with our usual daily schedule.

. When the pain increased because of cancer, his friend gave him analgesic and he took more than normal. Happened him a coma or something because of the overdose of the analgesic He pointed his finger to the sky and said, "O allah, take me and his family think he is leaving life The next day he woke up and sad that he had not died, he had seen beautiful things he had never seen before, so that he referred to heaven and called for Allah to take him to beauty. Ya Allah give him the highest place in jannah .عندما زاد عليه الألم بسبب السرطان اعطي له صديقه جرعه من المسكن فاخذ منها زيادة عن الطبيعي فدخل بغيبوبة او شي بسبب الجرعة الزائدة من المسكن فأشار باصبعه إلي السماء ويقول يا الله خذني وأعتقد اهله انها يفارق الحياة وفي اليوم التالي استيقظ وحزن انه لم يتوفي فقد رأي اشياء جميلة لم يرها من قبل لدرجة انه اشار الي السماء ودعا ان يأخذه الله لجمال ما رأي يا الله اسكنه فسيح جناته ************ ⛔if you can donate to @matw_project link in bio⛔ #alibanat#matw_project #matw#matwproject#inspire#idol#angel#humanity#humility#help#neverforget#remember#respect#jannah#kind#kindness#kids#africa#saveafrica#aroundtheworld#rip#cancer#fighter#charity#support#ali_banat #علي_بنات
STROMAL 2A OVARIAN CANCER . Here we go — warning — lengthy and honest post! . So around this time of year, I start to get memories coming up (thanks so much Facebook) of where I was this time a decade ago — 2009 . Post chemotherapy boobs for the win right?! It’s the only time I have ever experienced cleavage y’all🤣But don’t get excited, it’s just mad fluid retention that the body goes into after it’s pumped full of effective but somewhat toxic treatments and steroids to stay the spread of cancer through hormonal cells and tissues in my pelvic region . Add into the mix tidal waves of isolation, self-loathing and worthlessness that managed to take hold and the physiological aftermath was far outweighed by where my emotional being landed. I ran away from my support networks and friends for a time, because I ultimately could not face the idea of needing to be supported, I had always just survived and treaded water to keep myself from drowning! . Thankfully, I landed at my beautiful grandparents house in Port Mac and reconnected with the people that meant the most to me in the world but the personal growth process continues years later! Daily practices of humility and gratefulness are woven into every part of my life now. . Yes I broke my back last year to add to life’s little hiccups and yes my body still randomly spits out tumors that need to be swiftly dealt with (and totally interrupt my training schedule 😝) but the actual journey to health is one that doesn’t consist of my body alone, but is a culmination of the wonderful and beautifully accepting people that have happened to fall into my path exactly when most needed! . It’s a long long list and I think my word count on social media would run out so I’m not going to attempt to name you all, so just know that my appreciation can’t be expressed through words but is manifested and paid forward in my actions to those I am able to aid and assist in their own journeys as a coach!
The gentleman quality is today and everyday since the dawn of man has been the foundation of the “Alpha”. Being GQ will never die.. Today men are losing their masculinity by succumbing to the low life manner/example of treating Women like men.. It’s true, Feminism is thriving, at least in America it is. This powerful movement I believe has caused men to “act” small.. Hence more men not getting the door for their lady or men even believing it’s ok to hit a women... It’s not ok!.. Go ahead claim you’re a “Grinder” or a “warrior “... you’re not.. a Alpha isn’t measured by how much they bench or by what color of belt you hold in jujitsu.. The Alpha is measured by his Deeds. Plain and simple. The Alpha knows and understands the importance of the gentleman quality and the quality of “Leading by Example”. Stop trying to be tough and start being great at all the many little things in our daily lives that change the world. Stop trying to be something you’re not.. Be you! You have all the talents, tools, and gusto in your being to become absolutely Great! Change the way you see success, and make sure your actions are in alignment with your self concept of the greatness within!. Have a great weekend folks. #alpha#warrior#deeds#gq#gentleman#quality#greatness#destiny#fate#humility#leadbyexample#god#faith#hope#charity#life#live#freedom
In fitness arena we have a lot of false humility. When you have to tell someone the you are “humble” most of the time you are not. Humility is a quality that most aren’t born with. Putting others before yourself entirely (in every area), considering others before you, caring for the needs of others before yourself, taking a back seat while someone else shines sometimes. It’s ok to be quiet, it’s ok to let your work speak for you, it’s ok to consider others before yourself. Sometimes you just have to put your head down and work in silence. Just because you know something that someone else doesn’t, is not a reason to be arrogant, just because you are making more money than someone else does not give a person the right to become an asshole. Everyone had to start some where. The road to success in any level is hard and requires work. That alone should make you humble...........AFTERBURNS !!!!!!!
Hard truth of the day This life is but a moment, here one moment, gone the next. As we get older, we end up becoming more and invisible. We experience things that are of greater substance later in life than in the days of youth for the days of youth is filled with ignorance and foolishness while later in life humility and wisdom is attained. #truth#redpill#life#love#wisdom#humility
