The Truth

All week I have had this scenario running rampant through my brain:

You Can’t Handle the Truth

I was angry and allowing one woman to have complete control over my emotions for days and days.  Swirling in the knowledge that I know the truth, I am tired of the lying, and if this battle would just end I could get on with my life.

Except I am NOT STUCK. Except my life is MOVING FORWARD. Except my gorgeous brilliant world CANNOT BE SHATTERED.

This is THE TRUTH:

The man I love loves me and the children I am helping him raise love me too. No one on earth can ever take that away. I am love, fire, my own personal socialworkerpallooza who is an agitator and a social justice maven. I have a deep yearning for social justice with a deep and heart centered knowledge that together we can to ANYTHING. I have created movements that have actually MOVED. I have the ability to have conversations about the values that we hold as a people to change others lives.

I believe in the words of Jim Hightower when he says, “those who say it can’t be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.”

I am doing it.

I am firmly rooted in the knowledge that small things build incrementally into large things.  And that like the strongest tree my branches overflow with gorgeous beauty when I am deliciously planted in my soul purpose.

Soul Purpose

My SOUL PURPOSE…it just sounds so delicious rolling off my tongue into exquisite delightful systems shifting badass change.

THE TRUTH is…when I speak MY truth to MY power I am living in my deep, authentic, fiercely badass, powerful purpose and no one…not even she…can take that away from me.
