Radical Self Care

You dance to your favorite songs at the end of your morning routine.

The angels whispered you awake at 5 am and you promised yourself & God to make the most of this day and appreciate it no matter what comes your way.

Focus up love- you got this.

Almost doesn’t count

I almost filed down my fangs for you

I think this as I wipe the blood from my mouth and kiss your forehead

Feeling like Janie must have felt after she shot Teacake

Now your eyes are closed

And my eyes are watching God – praying I’ll been granted forgiveness for literally eating this man

I almost filed down my fangs for you

But when has almost ever counted?

The stories they told

Time- the only true truth teller it seemed…

She let time tell the story.

Time was her teacher and she listened with appreciation.

Quotes, links, and things that have soothed my soul this week:

“Work on how you respond when you feel disrespected.” -Nipsey Hussle

Truth In Silence

Time really does heal all wounds- but we must allow it.

Stay well Butterflies

User not Lost

She fell backwards into anonymity

Unreachable (to some)

Unidentifiable (mask on)

Slightly traceable ( she never hid)

Who she is doesn’t matter

Who she isn’t doesn’t matter either

She was sent here for a purpose

The drama and the bullshit – not it

God whispered instructions into her right ear

Clear and realigned it was time

Angels surrounded her -even on the dark days

Especially on dark days

She said thank you one more time

And fell backwards into anonymity

Aglow with Knowing

Listen, Read and let your soulllllll glow…

Lilith’s Lit Daughter, Pencil drawing by Me

Whom the phuck shall you fear- aren’t you the light?

I remind myself of who’s I am as I step into the night aglow

I get to know my darkness so it won’t consume me

I get to know my darkness so it can’t entomb me

There is power and strength in knowing and loving all sides of yourselves

Sharing the light of God with my demons we are reminded of our true essence

Now we work together in the dark of night for the light

Whom the phuck shall you fear- aren’t you the light?

Thanks BANKS

she thanked God for all of it…

i make long lists of all the things i’m grateful for

i live quietly and love my small circle of loved ones ferociously

i thank God for all of it

wearing my father’s old military jacket

Adorned with my mother’s old pin,

her mother’s old pin,

And a pin of my own that maybe my daughter will wear on her father’s old jacket one day i smile wide as this beautiful man snaps my picture just before the concert begins

she thanked God for all of it…

Helm of the heart

Slightly overwhelmed she let her heart take the helm

No more resisting all the unknowing

Falling softly into another realm

Heart at the helm

Falling slowly into the realization that this too shall past

Clarity flows through her

A cleansing wave of reality

Resilience sparkles on her skin

Heart at the helm

Releasing overwhelm

As heavenly help arrives

The heart knows who to call

Heart at the helm

No more overwhelm

”Just drop us a pin.”

they pulled up in the dead of night with love and empathy for everyone

night work

light work

God sent

hell-bent on making you remember that you are heaven-sent

built for more you are

one of God’s brilliant stars

cosmically created

you are enough

they pulled up in the dead of night with love and empathy for every one

Silence & Chatter

heart silence is louder then mind chatter

balance found between sight and sound

between light and profound

between words of wisdom and works of wisdom

heart silences the chattering mouth of mind

now body sleeps

as spirit creeps

into every

auricle and ventricle

cell and seam

free wheeling healing and making space for clarity’s gifts

heart silence is louder then mind chatter

Rooting for revival

Sketch by Me

She sat silently resting in the forest of her heart.

We can remain stuck in fear & holding on to the past, or we can use our past experiences to move confidently into the future. – Tanaaz

These words echoed throughout the canyons of her mind as strong winds of change began to blow in and around her.

Two cardinals flew by with a message.

When the roots are deep, there is no need to fear the wind. – Unknown

She stood faithfully and fearlessly in the forest of her own heart as her body began moving forward in time with the divine.

And so it is.
