Today was a big day.
Today the moon was new.
Today was my Grandmother's birthday. She passed 2 months ago. She would have been 98.
Today my old friend and client, Rev. Sekou gets to have his day i court after being arrested for praying in then street in the early days of the protests in Ferguson.
Today was the day my nice, Kailee was born.
Today was the day I decided to change.
Change isn't that big of a deal around here. I have learned that it is a must. Transformation is unavoidable and critical to growth and after having gone through it (more than) a few times i can see it coming. Something about this time feels bigger though, more fundamental than the times in the past when i decided to take on a spiritual or emotional growth spurt. This one feels like it will change everything. I am excited and I am freaking out and I have no idea whats in store for me.
What i do know is that I want to share the everyday happenings and the extraordinary shifts that will string together to make up the life that I am living into.
I will do my best to be honest, I will do my best to be clear and I pray that I embody the true meaning (well, at least the true meaning according to Brene Brown) of courage and remain openhearted in the face of whatever is to come.
I have a vision of who i will become and I know that at the end of this, what I will actually become is something beyond my wildest dreams. Free.
