This was just a few weeks ago. 🌞💦🍑 Weird how the emotional landscape can change so quickly. And then everything changes, doesn’t it? Or is it the other way around ♻️ Again and again.
Oh my gosh I am tired. This where I’m at right now. In a phase where everything feels like a whole lot, probably because I’m allowing myself to feel it all. When I’m overwhelmed or anxious I either shift into extreme work mode or I go completely recluse and have no motivation to work. Sometimes I don’t feel connected to it. I’m still showing up for myself in many ways but I accept these phases, nothing wrong with them. There’s growth happening. Coming up on mid-August already and I just went through another huge transition to mark this time in my life. Between the two emotionally exhausting lawsuits this year, medical stuff, falling in love and letting them go with love, chasing down payments for my work, launching multiple new projects and a business, chronic pain, we can all make lists like these. But I’m in it right now, feeling it all, and I wanna share it. Social media shows the highlight reel. You don’t have to be on all the time. You don’t have to judge or condemn challenging times and how you’re dealing. They just are. It just is. Take your time. Take care of you. . Take what you need: sleep, hugs, your meds, water, food, pleasures, alone time, community, mindful breath, writing it out, anger, a good cry, distractions, support, nature, social media break, try something new, go back to a familiar comfort, repeat a pattern that doesn’t serve you and learn that lesson again.

This post is for all white women following: We have been leaving black womxn out of our activism forever. I’m not doing enough. White supremacy is our foundation. White feminism fights to uphold it because it continues to award us privileges. Yes we are also fighting misogyny, white women face oppression but we are also oppressors. Nia Wilson, a beautiful child, was murdered by a white supremacist and she isn’t the first. No, there was nothing random about it and as it’s been said there isn’t anything random about a white man brutally murdering a black woman, barely 18, with no remorse. This was racially and gender motivated. We uphold the systems that permit this. Major news has hardly picked up Nia’s story. Media covering it have released photos of Nia with weed, with a gun phone case, painting her as a thug and demonizing her blackness. Nia’s life mattered. This does not happen when white boys and men shoot up schools. This portrayal isn’t an accident. We have to protect our womxn and girls, black womxn and femmes. This IS our responsibility. Pay black folx. Redistribute resources. Equity is not oppression though it can feel that way when you have all the privilege. Listen to black folx and believe them. Make moves when you see injustice happening right in front of you. Talk to your white friends and family and educate. Call out racist language every time you hear it. Do not laugh along in discomfort because those laughs perpetuate violence against someone else. Vote for black folx and vote for people who care about people. This is a call out on myself and to the spiritual and body positive white women who follow here, I know there are so many of you. Does our spirituality include uplifting marginalized folx and dismantling the systems that kill? Does our body positivity fight to protect those in black bodies who never get a break, never get a chance to feel safe? I’m watching black folx take to social media to do labor they shouldn’t have to do but can’t avoid, and I’m seeing white women come for them, silencing, and making it about their fragility. I repeat that equity is not oppression. Continued in comments. Artwork by @broobs.psd
Anybody feel like they could wander forever? I am so in love, just generally in love, I feel like I have to go sit in the middle of the forest by myself just to keep from getting overwhelmed. That might be anxiety inducing for some, for me it’s the ultimate calm. I daydream about my time spent in the mountains, blazing by glacier waters, the warmth of the sun when I’ve climbed a little closer to it. The many times I’ve seen more stars than I knew I could ever see. Galaxies. Incredible colors. Connected to how strange it is that anything exists as it does. Genuinely perplexed by our perception of time. Forming strong bonds with others, enjoying unique intimacy and unlocking new pleasures. Thinking I’ve felt it all until I feel something new. I’m a bit of a hedonist. Not rejecting pain, I think pain can be beautiful. But I love pleasures. I love to fulfill my senses and fill my heart in a way that resonates with me so loudly it’s like I’m always buzzing. I am a grounded person, stubborn, easily fixed in place. But another part of me is such a dreamer, a wanderer, so in love with everything I can’t possibly stay. It’s all arbitrary, or it can be or could be if we had equal freedoms. There are so many people, me too, living in accordance with what “should” be on various levels. But actually, there are endless ways to live. Endless ways to love. Oppressive systems like capitalism steal lives. Climbing the proverbial ladder. People trying to survive. A few of the cringiest words: should, normal, traditional. And in doing all of that - what are we missing? What’s your chosen reality, if you could fully choose? What’s your daydream? I covered my apartment in plants 🤷♀️
