I was listening to some of the latest songs when time stopped. I was no longer as strong and fearless...I was transported back to a time when I didn’t believe I was enough. This post is for every brown girl who has ever been haunted by demeaning lyrics.
If I Could Fly: Steps to Self-Realization
Last Sunday I went to a poetry show featuring four amazing poets.The experience was completely amazing and I am forever grateful for it. This Free-Thinking Friday I am sharing my experience as well as an open letter to all the poets who came before me.
A poem by Courtney Peppernell inspired me to rewrite a poem I wrote about love in 2014. It's beautiful to witness my own personal growth and redefining of the word "love". Spoiler Alert: If you are withering, my dear, it is not love.
I've never been afraid of heights but I've always grappled with this intense fear of falling. I don't like feeling out of control or not knowing what awaits me at the bottom.
Allow yourself to be present and to be purposeful and to be aware and to experience success and failure with an open heart and an open mind.
Happy Free-Thinking Friday everyone! Fridays always meet me with deep gratitude and intense exhaustion, especially when my week was full and busy. What are you feeling today? I hope my experience resonates with you.
