When did they teach us that we didn’t need sophistication to win the day? Did we actually believe them?
Icons are not created, they are born, because it takes authenticity to break through the monotony. The more I scroll on social media outlet’s looking for inspiration to consolidate, I notice the images woman of color have become abrasive, and not a true representation as the way I see myself as a copper-colored woman with a long history, most of it hidden. As we are only looking at the tip of the iceberg. I hope to do lots of unpacking, but for now, let’s just let that marinate.
Men with character, perseverance and determination paved the way, no matter what we think, in this current generation.
So many untold stories locked in the crate, because it provides an image most are searching for, but stuck with the same old tales, most historically untrue.
The attack on our fathers and our sons was an attack on our foundation. We need them to see this and embrace their importance daily.
Expression of love, has been under attack, normalizing trauma responses, and not discussing healing from ailments that came with having to fit into boxes that were not meant for any God-fearing human. I pray for the unification of the family, and to heal from generational trauma inflicted upon us by a Narcissistic society.
The strength and resiliency, that in this modern era, is being replaced by dolls, with accessories, marketing and celebrity, with no real culture or purpose, but to be appealing. Tone deaf at best
They say if you educate a man, you teach a person, but if you educate a girl, you teach a generation. Must be why girls, and ladies have been systematically oppressed all over the world, but I feel the winds of change.
Stay in love, not just for the moment, but for generations to come.
Thank you for joining me, until next time.
