We are going to thrive out loud. We are going to take up space in this world. We are not going to apologize for our intersections, our identities, our work, our love or how we lead life. We are going to continue to document so we can stand with others and illuminate the path in letting our youth know that it *actually* does get better.
Earning trust that's been lost is hard work, you guys. I don't have to tell you that. If someone betrays you, steals from you, attacks or belittles you... Would you trust them again? Would you let them take charge of your direction? Absolutely the fuck not. The root of your being is trust in yourself, because you are divine and powerful and you can create a life for yourself that is joyful and well. Guide yourself true.
Liminal space. It's part of the healing process, it's the darkest point before the dawn. The light is just there, on the other end of this corridor of self care and work.
Be that women for your self. Be that woman for your child. Be that woman for your partner, your community, for your future. When you shine your light, it illuminates the way for others to stand in their courage, too. Please, PLEASE shine your light, sister. Amen.
