Freedom is not a thing granted by the state in the form of law or proclamation or policy; it is a participatory process that demands new ways of thinking and being. -Angela Y. Davis
I fell in love with this amazing woman when I was in fifth grade and had read her book Women, Race and Color. I wanted to be a chingona (bad ass) like her and still do, even if it's only by a fraction. I'm so glad I chose this for my winter break read. I was really struggling while I was working on my proposal. I kept second guessing myself and was really making myself believe that I was wasting my time proposing this particular topic for further research. And I honestly just got all the inspiration that I needed to reignite that fire. I am willing to embark in this wild journey. I truly believe that if you want to see change you must be willing to risk it all.

I spy with my little eye... 🐱🎄 Have you ever wondered the life shelter pets lead after they get adopted? Today, I bring you Sammie’s sweetest success story. This baby girl was adopted from @lpapaws and is now thriving in her new loving home. From warm beds, sweet treats, a sister and toys to last for days Sammie is our pet of the week. I mean, just look at her meow.
This is very serious issue for these nomadic tribes . These kids are not connected with main stream of education . We need to connect them with 21st century tech and education . #education#supporter#blogger#activist#nomade

I gave Hunter a bite of lemon meringue pie earlier. This was his reaction. 🍋 🥧
It’s organized chaos on my desk. 😜🙃 I’ve got Kevin Gates playing on the speaker. 🎧 Citrus Fresh from @younglivingeo in my diffuser. 🌿 Penguin watching over me. 💚👊🏾 Working on TYA plans for next year. Got the OOE squad @anniekinskywalker + @meganthuy_ + @allieserpico back together to help with this!!! 🙌🏾 Not pictured: hubs doing commie things at the desk next to me. (Insert hammer and sickle emoji here.) Life. 💁🏾♀️
A quick haiku:
Summer, where are you?
Missing the beautiful times,
When freedom was mine☀️

@halesyoucan people say stop pushing your beliefs on others , this is happened during every single justice movement to date. Well , we’ll stop when you stop. Everyday with your knife and fork you are pushing your choices on to innocent animals . The future on this planet and the future of humanity . Yes , it is that serious. You can make a choice three times a day to not do this . It’s that easy . So when you stop , we’ll stop . If you were the animal facing the bolt gun I’m sure you wouldn’t want us to stop. #vegan#veganeasy#respect#loveALLanimals#raiseyoirvoice#donotkeepquiet#standup#bethechange#activism#activist

Soul team!!! I have some news! I AM WRITING A BOOK!!! This dream has been in the pipeline since I was seriously about 12 years old! But I kept doing other things, trying to please everyone else, working in jobs that did not fit me but because it was expected of me, trying to fit in to what society deems as appropriate. YUCK! That is all some bullshit I cannot and will not subscribe to anymore!
I have never felt more excited, aligned, alight and alive as I do right now because I said YES!
Yes to my dream
Yes to myself
Yes to my inner calling
Yes to the only life path that I have EVER been able to imagine fitting me!
I am a writer.
And for all my life I denied this because I subscribed to all those beliefs so many people have.. that it's really only a hobby and there's no money in it, it's only for a select few, it's hard, it's this, it's that,
blah blah blah.
None of that shit matters when you know its all you want to do, all you can do, all you are here to do.
Writing is Who I AM.
Its my lifeblood.
My soul magic.
My way of living and being in this world.
So I finally decided by saying yes and taking the first step by making it my leadership project with the @theschoolofvisibility and signing up with my most incredible talented intuitive editor @natashagilmoureditorial
And in doing so I have declared that rather than letting the world tell me who they think I should be, I'm gonna back myself all the way and SHOW them who I know I can be, and actually already am.
How bout you?
Millions of cows endure immense suffering on factory farms. 💔🐄 This footage from @MercyForAnimals shows some of that suffering. Every single day, you can make a difference for animals like these cows by choosing plant-based food. EatingVeg.org
