Live it and Love it A Lot

I love being a black woman. I literally thank God everyday for the tone of my skin, the texture of my hair, and the rhythm of my hips. I feel a beautiful depth of spirit and character that comes from an ancestry of strong women who held their families together through persecution and ignorance and kept their eyes on the prize. I claim unity with my sisters through the sparkle in my eyes, the sincerity in my smile and the love in my embrace. My purpose is to grow, support and inspire sisterhood to promote a stronger, more unified black community and world community. I want to inspire other women to feel like I feel - like love and hope personified. As women, we can overcome, climb over, walk through, kick down any obstacle if we simply believe we can.

How do you express your love for yourself? For your community? For the world? What is your mission? Is it healing, teaching, painting, writing? Perhaps it’s directing traffic, planting flowers or inspiring others on their mission. Be a reflection of the strength and beauty of those who came before us by pursuing a meaningful mission. Find your passion. Live it and love it a lot.

What is your passion and how are you living it? What makes you feel alive?

I love this post. Not only because I can relate to the history and inspiration in it, but because it presents me with something to go into the inner crevices of my soul and explore. Something to think and journal about....thank you.
