Anaconda, Community, and Family: Florida Woman Marries 100-Year-Old Tree To Save lt From Being Chopped Down: "If They Cut Down This Tree, l'm Going To Be A Widow" @balleralert Florida Woman Marries 100-Year-Old Tree To Save It From Being Chopped Down: “If They Cut Down This Tree, I’m Going To Be A Widow” – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an effort to save a 100-year-old tree, a Florida woman has asked for its branch in marriage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to The Miami Herald, the tree became part of a neighborhood controversy after Fort Myers city staff discussed chopping it down last year, despite its history in the Snell Family Park. However, after months of planning, the city agreed to a $13,000 spending budget to chop the tree, which in turn, sparked widespread backlash among those fond of the giant ficus. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In fact, one woman took matters into her own hands, using tips from women who’ve been protesting deforestation in Mexico. Over the weekend, Karen Cooper jumped the broom with the tree in an attempt to save it from being cut down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a waterfront ceremony that took place on Saturday, Cooper and a slew of other women who were dressed in white vowed to honor and protect the tree. The wedding was filled with the works, including flowers, a tree-decorated wedding cake, and a canine ring-bearer, as it was staged just three days before Tuesday’s meeting about the tree’s fate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then though, a spokesperson for the city, revealed that it is moving forward to save the beloved tree. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Everyday city employees care for the trees and plants that give our city a sense of community and shared history,” the spokesperson said. However, the tree’s fate is not completely secure just yet, Cooper says. Tuesday will be the determining factor, and if the Beautification Board does not agree to save the tree, the city’s councilman vowed to bring the issue to City Council. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "If they cut down this tree, I'm going to be a widow," Cooper said.

Definitely, Future, and Goals: WILLIONAIRE MENTOR IALWAYS WIN. NOT IMMEDIATELY BUT DEFINITELY. So you want the winners mentality? Read on!👇 ✔️Play to learn. How do you maintain a winning mindset when you lose? Champions have the mindset that if they lose, it is still a win because they learned something valuable. This allows them to interpret a seemingly discouraging experience as one that fuels determination. Look at times in your life where you have failed. Would you take that experience back in exchange for the lessons you learned? Likely, the future success you have had can be partially attributed to the wisdom you gained from your previous setback. You win every time when you play to learn! ✔️Risk = opportunity. An integral part of a winning mindset is seeing opportunity and risk as partners. In other words, you can’t have one without the other. I always wondered how some people found the courage to take risks continually. It’s because they understand that being risk-averse also means being opportunity-averse. Once I understood that, it became must easier to try something new and step out of my comfort zone. Here is why: I realized that risk can produce butterflies, but passing up a great opportunity will make you sick! It is all about how you interpret risk and opportunity. Can you guys relate to this one? ✔️Winning happens during practice. The will to win begins with preparing to win. “Practice like you compete, so you can compete like you practice.” ✔️They quit. People with a winning mindset make a habit of quitting! Now, I realize this seems a bit counterintuitive from what we believe about success. However, winners quit any attitude or action that is not moving them closer to their goals. They say, “DO” to whatever is contributing to their success and “NO” to whatever is delaying their success. 😉 - Leave a comment below and let me know what you think!👇 - success winner millionairementor

Fire, Guns, and Memes: Florida Moves Forward With Bill That Will Train and Arm Teachers With Guns @balleralert Florida Moves Forward With Bill That Will Train and Arm Teachers With Guns - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The process for bills to pass teachers being trained and armed with guns is moving quickly in Florida. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After the Feb. 14, terror attack at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, Florida’s House, and Senate started calling for weapons in the school. The House bills being pushed forward would use a $67 million budget to create a “school marshalls” program which will train teachers and other school officials to carry concealed guns. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not only has Trump said he’d like to arm 20 percent of teachers, he also says he’ll give bonuses to the ones who go through with the program. If the new legislation passes the age requirement for buying guns will rise to 21. Other changes include: banning the sale of bump stocks that allow some semi-automatic rifles to fire as quickly as an automatic, a three-day waiting period for people purchasing a gun, and another $400 million will go towards other school mental health resources. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Florida’s state House and Senate are both controlled by the Republican Party.

Goals, Life, and Love: IF YOU BELIEVE, YOU WILL. IF YOU DON'T, YOU WON'T. In any given day, our subconscious mind processes around 60,000 thoughts. It’s those same thoughts that are pushing us towards whatever it is that we desire while at the same time bringing us closer to the things that we fear. How can we achieve anything we want when our minds are almost working against us? 🤔 The truth of the matter is, as we already know it deep down inside, we get whatever it is that we focus on in life. When we focus on negative thoughts such as fear, anger, and resentment, we get more of the same. In fact, we live in a constant state of lack, wondering why we can never achieve the things we believe we want to achieve so badly in life. However, when we live an abundant life, steeped in positivity, moving away from fear, anger, and resentment, and moving towards love, growth, contribution, and forgiveness, we get more of the same. Like attracts like. It’s rather simple and straightforward. But, we don’t often notice it at a micro level. We tend to look at things on a grander scale, not really realizing what’s going on in the here-and-now. - 👇So, if you want to achieve those goals that you set for yourself, live an abundant life, and grow, there are 3 simple rules for achieving anything you want in life: ✔️Know what you want and why you want it. ✔️Create and follow a massive action plan. ✔️Track and analyze your results, making changes along the way. - You’re welcome! 😉 - success achieve mindset millionairementor

Beautiful, Brains, and Goals: IONCLE SAINT LAUREN ONLY THE WEAK GIVE UP Our brains are wired to giving up easily, it’s normal (but not all right). 🤔 Human beings are believed to act upon the “Pleasure Principle”, the instant gratification… Instant gratification is the desire to experience pleasure or fulfillment without delay or deferment. Basically, it’s when you want it; and you want it now. (just in case your wanted to know what it meant.) Yes, so once in a while, wanting to give up is normal. But giving up is not okay.☝️ - ✔️Giving up makes you lose more things than you can imagine. Instant success is a myth, always. Many successful people failed hundreds of times, if they chose to give up instead of working harder to reach their goals, they would never succeed. ✔️Picture in your mind the ultimate result. Keep in your mind the picture of the end result. A visualization of what you want to accomplish will keep you moving forward. I mean, seriously, you don’t want to stop partway through. The feeling of being a quitter isn’t pleasant. You are a winner! ✔️Remember why you started and how much you really wanted it. Think back to the moment that this project, goal, or concept was conceived. Remember the joy and thrill of the adventure ahead? At the beginning, you had a goal in mind; a beautiful picture etched in your mind of the finished task. Beginning was simple; carrying through has become difficult. Going back to the beginning brings into focus the purpose of your endeavor. The memory of anticipation of the job accomplished is stirred up again when you begin to contemplate the reason you began in the first place. Breathe in deep and recall your purpose. - Don’t give up! - givingup success millionairementor

Albert Einstein, America, and Blackhistory: Albert Einstein teaching a physics class at Lincoln University (HBCU in Pennsylvania) in 1946.
