"Some days You'll be an utter mess Apologize not Human you are Live Breath Stay authentic"
What is freedom? Rather, have you ever been free?
What are the stories you’re telling yourself? And what tales are you allowing your soul to absorb from your surroundings?
Do you recognize your voice, or have you even forgotten how you truly sound?
Is it shame, guilt, fear or a mix of all?
Too many questions and I don’t think I have satisfying answers.
I know one thing for sure: the difference between life and death lies in the narratives we embrace. The whole world could conspire to lift you up and give you chance after chance, but unless the story you’re scripting is aligned with your inner truth, you will not move an inch forward or soar higher than the current hole you’ve decided to bury your essence within!
It’s a universal wisdom "as within, so without".
So what should we do to reclaim this urgent sense of ownership and triumph against our lower nature?
We need authentic stories.
Yes! We're desperate for tales that could trigger our communities into loving more, loving better, and loving wholly.
I want us to walk through the fire and come out on the other side purified, fiercer, and humbled enough to let go of false ego and doctrines.
This is the era of the "outcasts" where the voiceless are demanded to rise and center the hell out of their scars, struggles, and triumphs alike. The push against all forms of injustices is a vital key to unpack and dismantle our deep toxic beliefs.
There’s too much to gain and nothing to lose except these mythical shackles that have weighed humanity for too fucking long.
Dare to speak up and find that courage. It might sting a little at first, but it will become easier with time and a part of your own survival.
Create all the affirming mantras you need and know that you are essentially human. So erupt magically.
"I didn't learn to be quiet when I had an opinion.
The reason they knew who I was is because I TOLD THEM!" -Ursula Burns
