Like the hair loss that accompanies chemo, life saving corticosteroids are essential for someone like me even as they cause the tell-tale "moon face" .... swollen belly...."buffalo hump" on the neck. Oh my....Part of my journey is to walk through the field of dynamic energy - transformation - while remaining awake, curious, and committed to FEELING it along the way. So here I am. No hiding. In the middle of the mess of metamorphosis....learning to love God, myself and my neighbor in ways I never thought possible....and DARING to feel BEAUTIFUL even as i don't recognize myself....DARING to get my self-esteem from deep inside of me instead of from the approval of others...DARING to allow the slow work of God to birth whatever it is that God wants for me in my life. It's an embodied Advent for me! So I shall thank the "moon face" .... because I'm learning how cruel I've been to myself throughout my life....I would NEVER treat others the way I've treated myself. Radical self love. Radical love of my neighbor. This is the path.

"I've changed. Irrevocably. Permanently. My soul is richer and my heart is fuller in brokenness than it ever was without. I've learned true despair and it made me learn to appreciate true joy." Lexi Behrndt.

You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I'll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom? 'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops, Weakened by my soulful cries?
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard 'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines Diggin' in my own backyard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history's shame
I rise Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I rise I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide, Welling and swelling I bear in the tide. Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
I rise Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise I rise I rise.

Com a loucura de final de período, nem pude postar muito essa semana! Quem mais tá assim?! 😹😅Me deparei com essa pintura linda aqui na universidade e lembrei que queria fazer uma homenagem ao dia da consciência negra, que foi dia 20 de novembro! Como as fotos por aqui são autorais, achei que ficaria perfeito! E claro, com um dos mais célebres poemas da Maya Angelou, que foi uma grande poeta e ativista dos direitos humanos: Ainda assim me levanto (still I rise)
Você pode me inscrever na história
Com as mentiras amargas que contar
Você pode me arrastar no pó,
Ainda assim, como pó, vou me levantar
Minha elegância o perturba?
Por que você afunda no pesar?
Porque eu caminho como se eu tivesse
Petróleo jorrando na sala de estar
Assim como a lua ou o sol
Com a certeza das ondas no mar
Como se ergue a esperança
Ainda assim, vou me levantar
Você queria me ver abatida?
Cabeça baixa, olhar caído,
Ombros curvados como lágrimas,
Com a alma a gritar enfraquecida?
Minha altivez o ofende?
Não leve isso tão a mal
Só porque eu rio como se tivesse
Minas de ouro no quintal
Você pode me fuzilar com palavras
E me retalhar com seu olhar
Pode me matar com seu ódio
Ainda assim, como ar, vou me levantar
Minha sensualidade o agita
E você, surpreso, se admira
Ao me ver dançar como se tivesse
Diamantes na altura da virilha?
Das choças dessa história escandalosa
Eu me levanto
De um passado que se ancora doloroso
Eu me levanto
Sou um oceano negro, vasto e irrequieto
Indo e vindo contra as marés eu me elevo
Esquecendo noites de terror e medo
Eu me levanto
Numa luz incomumente clara de manhã cedo
Eu me levanto
Trazendo os dons dos meus antepassados
Eu sou o sonho e as esperanças dos escravos
Eu me levanto
Eu me levanto
Eu me levanto
You are allowed to scream, you are allowed to cry, but do not give up
#stillirise 🙏⚽️
