@clavacialove - your next Sherlock Holmes 🧐

⁣⁣⁣Scarcity mentality vs abundance (pre-quarantine picture has nothing to do with what I’m talking about 😂)⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Stephen Covey once said “Most people are deeply scripted in what I call the Scarcity Mentality. They see life as having only so much, as though there were only one pie out there. And if someone were to get a big piece of the pie, it would mean less for everyone else.”⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Do you agree?⁣ I think I used to think this way a little when I was younger. But not anymore. (What I do get annoyed about is when someone takes credit for my work or takes my work and copies it. Another story for another time.)⁣⁣
⁣
Some things are not meant for me so if someone else gets it or does it, it doesn’t mean they took it from me. It just means there’s something else for me. Does that make sense?⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
When we come from a place of lack (where we think there is never enough), we will never be happy.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
If I’m being honest, there have been times where I was in that place mentally but I’ve been trying to be more mindful and aware. And also know that when something is meant for me- it will come.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
It doesn’t mean I just sit on my butt and wait. I live my life. I do what I need to. I work hard. I love hard. I live life to the fullest and use my gifts and talents where they fit.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Instead of asking why is this happening to me, think about what is here for me. And once you figure out what is here and how you fit into it, live, love, serve.⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
What do you guys think?

Three years ago, we spent the day documenting the decaying National Register structures on the Westwood VA campus, lamenting the corrupt misuse of this much needed land, worried that when homeless vets' housing finally is built, these landmarks may fall victim. #mydayinla #thisplacematters

Thinking of cool buildings we've lost because nobody stepped up to fight for them, like the totally tubular Star Theatre in beautiful downtown La Puente. Built by S. Charles Lee, demolished by fools. #mydayinla #thisplacematters #signgeeks

Nelson Mandela and Malcolm X quotes could not be wiser. This is being going for way too long. Racism, greed, violence, inequality, etc. Things HAVE to change, it NEEDS to change.

One in LA tomorrow 4 pm at Sunset and Crescent Heights. One today in Long Beach at 3 pm outside the Long Beach police headquarters. Don’t believe what you see in the media. These protests are safe. The vandalism you see in the news is happening at the instigation of police on the edges of the actual protest. You can easily avoid it should it happen near a protest you attend. In the meantime, you will see thousands of fellow citizens exercising their constitutional right to speak their mind and heart about continued police brutality and murder of Black citizens. You will stop feeling frightened and alone and confused about what to do. You will hear and see slogans and calls to action you can leverage to stop police murder and violence. You will set an example for your kids that they will never forget. You can post images of what you see with your own eyes to combat the mainstream media who reflect the police perspective that we should be fearful and obedient. #blmla #mydayinla #justiceforgeorgefloyd #justiceforahmaud #justiceforbreonnataylor

As we made our way down Melrose, towards Fairfax, Tupac’s “Changes” played on a guy’s portable speaker, while another guy screamed, “Crazy is the new norm!” There were many people helping to clean up the damage, of all races, side-by-side. This is Los Angeles. May 30, 2020. #blacklivesmatter #mydayinLA #losangeles

Yesterday in Los Angeles. ⠀
⠀
I want to share this message I heard at the protest from a 16-year-old who is graduating  high school this year: ⠀
⠀
"Can you imagine the trauma that inhabits the spirit, the body, and the lives of black people? Can you imagine I am not excited about college right now? 𝐈 𝐚𝐦 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐞𝐱𝐜𝐢𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐠𝐞𝐭 𝐨𝐧 𝐦𝐲 𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐦𝐲 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞, 𝐛𝐞𝐜𝐚𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐈 𝐝𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐢𝐟 𝐈 𝐰𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐚 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐞. This is not living. This is surviving.⠀
⠀
We are not out here rallying and being angry over a fucking haircut. We are not mad that we can’t go to the movies or go to the beach. We are mad because we can’t even fucking live. They say we are mourning a man we never knew. I didn’t know George Floyd ,I didn’t know Breonna Taylor, but I know them too fucking well. Like I know Trayvon Martin. I know them like Philando Castile. I know them like Aiyana Jones. I know them like Eric Garner and Alton Sterling. We’ve mourned them time and time again. Every fucking time. Every fucking day. Every time I take a breath I am mourning another black life lost. It seems like every fucking day.”⠀
⠀ -A transcription of one of the protest speeches. I am keeping her anonymous to protect her identity, but if you know who gave this speech and if they’d like credit, please let me know!⠀
⠀
#BLACKLIVESMATTER #CARENOTCOPS⠀
⠀
Update: Los Angeles, thank you for protesting for justice. There will be a link in my bio for the GoFund me page that will be used for supplies to keep us safe, things that will amplify our noise, transportation for protestors, bail relief, and other necessary resources as we fight this battle.⠀

“Life imposes things on you that you can’t control, but you still have the choice of how you’re going to live through this.” -Celine Dion
A few days ago, or a week ago, who even knows anymore... 😅😅 I shared a podcast about an astronaut talking about Coronavirus vs being isolated in space. I have a new one for you to listen to, search “Can we all come out now?” And listen to the “I went to prison” episode. I haven’t been struggling with the lock downs, at all, we’re still under the stay at home orders over here... but I feel that this podcast episode gives a great perspective from someone who is isolated in jail vs what we are dealing with now. 
Yes we all have to stay home (well, some of us have some new freedoms now) but we’re stuck inside with comfy beds, TVs, Internet, our pets. And many of us never lost the luxury of going to the grocery store or going for a drive if we needed to get out for a bit.
I’m not always a very positive person, I complain more than I’d like to with many things. But it’s been easy for me to find the positives in this ordeal. I’ve been able to experience what life as a stay at home dog mom is like, I’ve painted just about every room in my house, I’ve picked up a book for the first time in over ten years, I rescued 6 baby bunnies and raised them for a few weeks, I’ve taken up gardening. I now know I’m capable of making meals other than Mac and cheese. I haven’t been bored once, and plot twist: I don’t even have a Netflix account. Never have. 😱😱 It’s all about staying busy and finding the joy in the little things again.

Connecting with people creates change. Focus on building community and in the end everybody must somehow be part of it. Everyone must be included. We are only free if we are in it together.

Connecting with people creates change. Focus on building community and in the end everybody must somehow be part of it. Everyone must be included. We are only free if we are in it together.

We showed up at about 1PM. Everyone was organized peacefully on the grass at Pan Pacific Park, making signs, BLM LA was giving out free food and water, care packages with gloves and masks.
Group chants started, cars rolled by on Beverly honking in support, fists raised out sun roofs and windows, signs of solidarity hanging over car doors. Some even stopped and got out to help stop traffic. We moved out into the street.
Thousands of us marched and chanted peacefully, up and down Beverly, from several blocks east of the park and back all the way over to Fairfax, several times. It was organized, powerful, respectful, peaceful.
Then suddenly, right in front of us, a cop car was smashed and set on fire, feet away. It took minutes to throw everything into chaos. It was a disturbingly calculated effort by a handful of people who stuck out like sore thumbs from the rest, who then mysteriously disappeared. People started to run.
The organizers decried this but it was already done; roughly 2:45PM. Cops were itching to start some shit, and this was their opportunity; rubber bullets were fired minutes later, as we started to make our way back to my car, since it was clearly time to get the hell out. By 3PM, dozens of squad cars were racing over, and you could hear the LAPD gunfire.
There's ample video evidence of countless instances of police instigating violence today against peaceful protesters, all over the country, and this is just one more. Fuck the police. ✊ What was the whole point of this protest in the first place? You know!
.
I did my best to only shoot my fellow marchers from behind, I didn't want to expose any faces in these. Just wanted to share that this was, for a few hours, exactly what it was intended to be. Stay safe, everyone. 🔥

...as 2nd wave of marchers continued West on #Beverly, the 1st wave seemed to abruptly turn back East. I saw a guy furtively pull a hammer out of his bag and hand it to another, someone else yelled “TAKE THE INTERSECTION,” and then the police car went up...and I went home. The mood changed like someone flipped a switch. Please stay safe everyone!! #georgefloyd #blacklivesmatter✊🏾 #mydayinLA

The protest today at #PanPacificPark was orderly and peaceful. I came in late, after the speeches, and it seems folks were starting to calmly march west down #BeverlyBoulevard toward #Fairfax... #georgefloyd #blacklivesmatter #mydayinLA
