It's Monday... I'm excited. Monday is like the most motivational day for me. It's the start of the work week, school week, I'm rested after Sunday, and I'm definitely going to be reading a book later today 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
What is there not to be excited about?!
Now that we mentioned how motivating Mondays are ((because I seriously LOVE Mondays 😍😍)), I figured I'd talk about what motivated me to start this blog. I was searching for peace and once I found it, I became determined to share it.
I feel like peace should be for all. Peace within. Peace without. Peace among. Peace for all. I also wanted to clear up the misconceptions on peace. It's not absence of bad days or negative energy, things, thoughts, or vibes. It's not happy all the time. It's not "positive vibes only✌🏾".
It's keeping calm during a toddler melt down. It's valuing your safety after a fender bender that made you late. It's enjoyed the ride after you drove 30 mins only to find the establishment is closed. It's the calm in the storm. It's the gratitude in the moment. It's living IN THE MOMENT.
It's a hug from the wind.
Kisses from the cold raindrops.
It's a laugh in the middle of crying because all of the emotions need to be felt and released and expressed. Not suppressed.
I also wanted to build the village back.
Have unity again.
I feel like that comes from candid conversations. Open dialogue. Releasing the idea of "taboo". It's just me and you saying what needs to be said. Hearing what needs to be heard. Doing what needs to be done. And healing what needs to be healed.
***I don't discriminate but as a black woman raising a black man, my focus is the black community. If other communities feel inspired by me then so be it, we all deserve peace.****
And on that note, I'm out ✌🏾✌🏾🎤((mic drop))
