MINDFUL MONDAY BLOG

"Be Encouraged and Live"
is now featured on the new
Mindful Monday Blog
Calling in the wisdom of…
Aminah, mother of Mohammad
Mary, mother of Jesus the Christ
Isis, Queen Sheeba, Nefertiti
Sojourner Truth, Septima Clark
Harriet Tubman, Winnie Mandela
And those we have not named…..
<Pause. A moment of silence.>
We are their hopes.
Born of their sacred wombs
We are life continued.
Tilling this Earth back to a higher truth
One child at a time
One moment at a time
One project at a time
One policy at a time
One person at a time
We keep moving forward.
Weary from fighting against, pushing back, calling out
Releasing the weight of this bridge on my back
Reclaiming my time
I breathe in a new truth that is mine to create
Breathing in ancestral lands
Breathing in the legacy we carry forward
Breathing in being loved
Breathing in being seen
Breathing in experiencing joy
Breathing in feeling beautiful
Breathing in the I AM.
I become. We become. She becomes.
