“Don’t ask if your dreams are crazy, ask if they are crazy enough.” – @kaepernick7



This amazing piece of art by @ava is the most powerful thing that I’ve seen on social media this morning.

After I finished crying I knew what I needed to do today.
Walk into my classroom at my best.
Not the best black, fat, female, queer teacher.
THE
BEST
TEACHER
THEY’VE
EVER
HAD!

I want to be the one who helps them believe they can, they will and provide the tools that will get them there.

So what will YOU do with it?

Hey y’all hey!
Happy #FatFatFridays!!!

Let’s Get Free!

Shout out to this #conversationpiece I got from @mumumansion’s #SweetSummerBookParty (see what happened there).

This shirt bonded me to students and colleagues as we conversed about what getting free looks like.

This is the 1st thing I saw when I checked my social media this morEning…
I needed to see this.
The gentleness.
The ease.
The care.



I hope that I am this way with myself and that as I practice this with myself I can be this way with others.



This looks like safe, sacred, nourishing, nurturing and healing space.

Hey y’all Hey!
I made time this morEning because when the Grandmothers and Aunties have to comfort me when I wake in the midnight hour, I MUST make time.
Check out my IG Live/Story today to find out what the cards and the Mother Board had to say.

As we wrapped up our community Auntie conversation, there was a moment when it all became so clear how I/we got here…
It was the committment that I/we made to ourselves in love, a form of self-care and with compassionate honesty.
This is how you live your best life/the life of your dreams.
So grateful to @theluxelibra @lexidailey @meloneedg for continuing to hold space for me/us to work it out.
