GROWTH: Issa Process

One day at a time. One hour at a time. One moment at a time. One breath at a time. You’re doing it: sometimes growth is simply being and breathing.

I’m trying to get it all done. Working on lesson plans, self care, blogging, spiritual work, setting up my classroom, momming, writing, wife-ing… awldat, awldat, awldat!!!

Some days it looks like I have my shit together and sometimes it doesn’t and I am at peace with that.

I hope you are living your best life and on days when that doesn’t look perfect/ polished/curated you don’t feel the need to pretend.

Our culture demands so much from women. We must have the perfect body, a beat face, a career where you are “securing the bag“ picture perfect relationship, beautifully decorated home, and don’t forget perfectly coiffed hair. Of course, reality is often the complete opposite of all of these… We struggle, we are messy, we eat from the drive through, kids misbehave, we face loneliness, infidelity, insecurity and a lack of opportunity. We make unhealthy choices and flat out mistakes. We’re XX years old and “still” aren’t in the house, location, or position we thought we’d be in by now. We have miscommunications and losses. We have criminal records and addictions. Yet, none of this means WE are a loss. WE are here. WE can be of service. WE can add value, whether it’s a word of preventative advice, or a word of encouragement. WE can offer our “experience, strength and hope” to another. We can STILL excel at life in some aspect. WE can whisper or shout a prayer. WE can show up with a good attitude and a smile. WE can look in the mirror and encourage ourselves, then go out in to the world and encourage someone else. No matter our imperfections we can still give AND receive good things. Thank you @troubleman31 #RapTure for the reminder. It resonated in my soul💙🙏🏾💙. #ThisIs40➕ #MosesYear

You probably know by now that I LOVE the color purple…
I also LOVE “The Color Purple.”
I read this book by Alice Walker at age 11, shortly after reading Caged Bird by Maya Angelou and shortly before discovering The Bluest Eye. In them I found the beginnings of myself, my cannon of Literary mothers and the generative sisterhood among Black Womxn.

“Yeah Celie, everything wanna be loved.“
・・・
"When I think about what a hard rough way of living Celie was forced into and how Shug Avery came in to lighten and soften her world, it just reminds me of what women’s empowerment really means to me. I honor all the women who have come into my life, given me a new set of eyes to see life differently and softened my vision of life.”
