“I had to learn that when we feel something, even when it is negative, even when it hurts so bad that its nauseating, strangulating, we have to allow ourselves sufficient time to feel it. We have to soak in it, relish in it. And though it always seems never-ending, through it we are becoming. We have to let ourselves not be cucumbers but little shriveled up pickles of emotions that prove that we are alive- and thriving. You have to learn to sit with yourself. But I realize that I am speaking in past tense here and I am not being honest with you all. I am still lying on the pavement right now. I am still trying to answer my own questions, trying to figure out happiness and its real importance to me, trying to sort through what feels like an unending mess of emotions and apprehensions and self-esteem issues. But I am trying, nonetheless. I worry that most people never do.” https://thoughtcatalog.com/lizz-dawson/2014/06/you-have-to-learn-to-sit-with-yourself/

Single parent life is hard but he’s worth it. He started school at a new academy and so far he has flourished. If you get the opportunity, give your kids the best chance.

Rosa Parks practiced yoga. Here is a pic of her on her mat in 1973 via the Library of Congress. Who else feels a little more liberated? 🙋🏾‍♀️

There were so many moments from today that blessed me. But this one right here will always stick with me. @hundredsunit was about 100 deep dressed in the Black Panther tradition and they split their line to allow us to walk through. Ta Karra was chanting “She will lead the revolution!” which couldn’t be more true. They marched in place and saluted us as we walked by. RoLanda Allaha Wilkins placed a crown of flowers on each black girls head and led them during the march. When we got to this place I was overwhelmed with emotion and began to cry. It was at that moment they saw their community center them, exalt them, lift them, and honor them. It doesn’t happen enough but I was so proud that we did that for them. They will be forever grounded in truth because of that moment. Thank you to everyone who helped make this day possible. We couldn’t have done it without you. You made my vision come true.

Repost: @bwu_sacramento The night before the march we host a speakers dinner to bring everyone together to share a meal. The amount of ancestral power in this space is indescribable. We are so thankful to everyone who will join us tomorrow and celebrate the beauty and resilience of black womanhood. See you tomorrow at the Black Women’s March.
