Shameless. (Though in English it just doesn't carry the same power for me.) Did your mama or Grandma ever call you this? For me, it is a word with very strong memories and connotations sunk deep into my consciousness. And this Gregorian year I am committed to reclaiming it in every sense. Somehow, I got the idea that I was not acceptable if I was too ....anything. Humble, quiet, and agreeable were the best things to be... especially as a woman (a Catholic raised Latina). You were never to be too proud, never to be too vocal, never to be too opinionated, never to share too much of your business, and definitely never to be too ostentatious with one's body.
___
If you know me well, you know I'm not very good at living up to these standards. But these deep seeded beliefs still hold the power to inhibit one's sense of self. It comes up for me again and again. I've seen it in my parents, my sibling, and myself. And these are not beliefs I want passed onto my children. Nor do I want to continue living out parts of them. I believe there is some important generational healing to be done around this word and the concepts attached. Original sin has colonized the minds of so many.
___
This year, I will loudly tell my story in hopes of helping others (even if my voice is shaking and words get caught in my throat). I will visibly show my pride in my work, in myself, and in my family. I will tell you exactly what I think because I have very strong opinions and a lot to say. And you've already seen or heard of some of my naked experiments but I'm sure more will come. 😘

En lucha y amor,
Un Mama Sin Vergūenza ✊🏽 ___

Are you remembering to sing? And use your voice to speak up for your needs and dreams and integrity? Our voices are one of the most powerful things we have. And wouldn’t the world be great if we were all singing and making music all the time everywhere?

I want it to be this way so bad I am sharing my crooked teeth and up close wrinkles with you in this video of my John Craigie riff of the day. .

I will never stop using my voice to speak out on this issue. I hope reading this can give comfort to others feeling triggered in this culturally moment. Either way, it just feels good to speak my truth after repressing it for far too long... Sending love and strength to all my fellow survivors ❤️

Miracles Arise In Adversity
By : Phoenix The Poet

Prayer takes you along ways
You can be whatever you put your mind to. If at any point you don't succeed , Get up every time you fall and go harder. It's not over. The world is waiting on you. Show them what you're made of. Destiny will take you wherever the wind blows in the direction Jehovah wants you to go. You can't write how your life will go , but you can put your dreams on a dream board , brand and network , look for grants , raise funds through fundraisers , and look for sponsors , or you can put back 10% or more of every check into your savings or in safe if you don't believe in having your funds in a bank account. Just do what you must to manifest your vision as long as it's not taking what others worked day in and day out , shed blood , sweat , and tears for. Use all the bad habits you have and flip them into positive contributions. You don't have to be a product of your circumstances or a victim of your past. It's so many ex convicts , college drop outs , ex drug dealers , ex drug addicts , etc using their knowledge they've obtained to commit good deeds. Take heed and don't go so far left that you get caught up in a situation you can't get out of. The streets is ruthless. There is no love or loyalty in these streets. Why put your life , your freedom , your loved ones lives in jeopardy ? #dontgiveup #dontbeasheep #useyourvoice #useyourgift #leadahorsetowater #cantshowablindmanthecheatcodes #eaglesflyalone #pigeonsflocktogether #QuiaraIAm #writerscommunity
Major throwback Thursday with my sisters.
Almost a year after the Women’s March in London, we’ve seen the unprecedented power of movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp. From Hollywood downwards, women everywhere have exposed shitty men. And some men have exposed shitty men too. We have a responsibility to read these accounts and feel their pain & desperation. We have a responsibility to get angry, educate and contribute to change. It’s not our role to put value on one persons pain over another’s. No one can invalidate your experiences, so don’t give them the power to do so.
I think #TimesUp so I’m going to the rally on Sunday, it starts at 11am, Richmond Terrace, Ldn.
Btw both men and women are invited... isn’t equality great, men are allowed a seat at the table too. Wowza’s. .

If we don’t take action when we have the opportunity, then the moment will pass us by... The time to use our voices is NOW. The time to make a difference is NOW. My friend and activist writer @wildmysticwoman is being deliberately silenced by racist trolls who are reporting her and her posts on Instagram and Facebook. She has now been banned from Facebook for 24 hours. She has, in essence, been deprived of her voice. And so if you’re asking, “Well, so what? What can I do?” I’m telling you there IS something you can do: You can sign the petition that I link to in my bio on here. Sometimes it feels like nothing we do matters or makes a difference, but I’m telling you, it all adds up. Don’t you dare think that your voice doesn’t matter. It does. #SilenceNoMore

I know this may come as surprise for some of us ~ but if we don't ask for specifically what we need or want + honor our yes's and our no's -- than we are setting ourselves up for a world of continual disappointment & pain. We have to protect our hearts, and our well-being by teaching people that it's not okay to do some things and this is what would be more appreciated. ~
Our wants & emotional needs shift yearly, monthly, daily, weekly...by the minute - so it's important to always tune in -- ok, what do I need right now? If I'm in pain what emotional need of mine isn't being met? Maybe it's simple, I need space. Physical touch? Or I need rest. Or can this girl sleep a little? Or perhaps our needs are, "I would appreciate it if you would acknowledge me for X, I would really like to be more intimate because I feel connected to you and that makes me feel safe or are you available to talk about something that's coming up for me? Oh, and it makes me feeeel really super amazing when you kiss me goodnight. Yo, it's simple things and there's nothing wrong for asking for what will make you feel better and ultimately be your best, real YOU.
I say we take the guessing game out of the mix and be transparent about our emotional, mental, physical, sexual & soul needs. Growth. Adventure. Certainty. Uncertainty. Love. You name it, you deserve it - but you better start asking for it if you really want it. ||👌 #beingisbeautiful

Sometimes I post/ talk simple randomness. Other times I have something to say. And its important. If i feel it, i think it, its real. Because I am real. This means what we all feel is real, and you're allowed to talk about it. Dont let people make you feel that your voice and your opinion arent worth being heard. If you're on this earth, you have every right to share your experiences. It may even benefit those who are too afraid to speak and share.

It's #winnethepoohday so decided to share this quote that's still relevant today... The lessons we didn't know we were learning when we were children watching cartoons!⠀

"Be bold enough to use your voice, brave enough to listen to your heart, and strong enough to live the life you've always imagined" - Winne The Pooh⠀

Annnnd I'm back! I've had a week off social media while I've been back in the UK and it's been nice. Instagram can at times feel quite pressurised, finding a picture worth posting, saying something meaningful, being natural while talking to yourself on stories, loosing followers, gaining followers... it's exhausting!
But just a few minutes scrolling through my feed and I'm reminded why I love Instagram so much. It's all the brilliant mums, helping each other through the motherhood minefield. It's the community of diverse, strong women, using their platform for so many wonderful causes. It's the small business owners. It's the people doing beautiful things with their homes. It's the Dads reminding us that parenting isn't just about women. it's the travellers, the foodies and the fashionistas. So it's nice to have a break but it's great to be back too.
