“I’m not an activist; I don't look for controversy. I'm not a political person, but I'm a person with compassion. I care passionately about equal rights. I care about human rights. I care about animal rights.”
- Ellen DeGeneres
I couldn’t have said it better myself. Today, one of my many dreams came true. I accompanied a group of experience men and went on an elephant rescue mission. San-Dee, age 51 used to be a logging elephant for a very long time. She was fortunately rescued by a sanctuary in Khao Sok. They unfortunately couldn’t afford to keep her and contacted @elephantjunglesanctuary for assistance. Today, we came in and brought her to her forever home where she will lead the rest of her life with love. To be able to witness the gentleness they showed towards her today made me feel really hopeful for the changing of the tide and the way the locals perceive elephants. Big change is coming.
Thank you for making me the happiest girl in the world today. I have always known I am but one person. But one can do so much to aid the state of the world. We are all part of a collective of energy that contributes to a bigger picture, a bigger scheme of things. Everyone of us, oozing kindness, is exactly what the world needs. Especially right now. Do what makes your heart sing and do it while being kind to yourself and being kind to others.
Love and light.

Elephants are the largest brained mammal and their frontal cortex (responsible for their social and emotional well-being) is the biggest part of their brain. Elephants are extremely resilient individuals. With memories like an elephant’s, it’s a wonder how they can be so forgiving and display so much personal strength, all this while looking out for every other elephant in the herd.

Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens, the day can end beautifully. -Kristen Butler
Sunrises and sunsets reminds us that there is an entire universe that is so much more vast and sophisticated than what we think we are. When we look within, we will realise that nothing is impossible and as cheesy as it sounds, impossible is nothing.

"People who love to eat are the best people." - Julia Child
Did you know that elephants eat 200-300kg of food a day? They don't have a stomach like we do, so anything that goes in, gets broken down, and comes out as poop. This is also why an elephant poops so much!
