My name’s Trina I am Souix and cree from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I am the youngest of 8 and I was raised by a single mom in a wheelchair. When I was 4 years old my mom blacked out. Crawled under a CP rail train and severed both her legs and one arm. She never walked or drank again. I grew up in extreme poverty, and was in and out of the child welfare system. As a young adult, I let my childhood years define me. I became another Aboriginal statistic going in and out of the institutional system, I became an addict stuck in the Street life. When I was 24, I didn’t like the person I became. I didn’t like what I saw when I looked in the mirror. I changed my life, and have never looked back. Today I am 35 and can say I live a positive life. I want to say to anyone struggling with addictions, child welfare, institutions. It may seem never ending and hopeless but just like good times come and go, so do bad times as well. You are worth a happy life, and a change is possible. Don’t ever doubt yourself. I am your admin “#TK“. ❤️

As I was standing outside again this morning in the freezing cold weather, I noticed some tracks in the yard. I began to think of what it must be like for the creatures who live in the elements and what they need to do to survive. As I walked back into the warm house, I sent love and light to those who survive the elements outside!
I will be grateful for everything that I have in my life to take care of my physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being from the inside out!
What are you grateful for today?
Peace, love, light and blessings
