#Mamalove blessed to call these mamas friends! @oliviammerchant posed the question if a more empowering term existed than #singlemom since #singlemama 's have taken the blame for many broken systems. I suggested #SuperMom#Comadre , #Co -Mama ... As a "single mom" I've been surrounded by powerful #women , #dreamers and #visionaries who also mother. They have held my children & I through transformation and challenge, feeding our bellies, hearts, and spirits with love. For the #radicalmothering community I've supported and been a part of I am forever #grateful .
As entrepreneurs we are often referred to by those who aren't as dreamers or delusional. Most successful entrepreneurs were often referred to this too. My favourite and the one that reminds me that I am on the right path is 'why don't you get a real job.' The fact is #entrepreneurs are #visionaries which are mistaken for being a dreamer. Without visioning something different those with 'proper jobs' wouldn't have jobs to go to. Keep the vision, keep figuring out a different way, but above all, do something!
I got asked to go out with two different guys tonight...Eh. I am laying in bed listening to the rain...feeling some sort of way. Not about the guys. Whatever. I feel like I should date a lil more, but my mind is so far removed from that sort of stuff right now. The current state of our nation...it affects me internally daily. I don't express it so much, but lately it's hard not to. Once when I was eighteen years old, I was approached by a man who was a complete stranger and for some reason I allowed him to walk me to my road home from downtown. He told me on our walk that he was a psychic and a visionary. He then continued on to say that I am a messenger of light for the Source. I was special. Now, in my mind, I felt no fear of this average looking man in his sixties, maybe even seventies. It was like it was destined for him to take this walk with me to let me know I am a spirit guide, a healer of spirits...a light within a dark sky. It was a very powerful transfer of energy. When we arrived to the bottom of my road, he told me he was going to turn around and go onward but to know that I am one of the chosen ones and to always remember his words. Well, be it real or not, it has always stuck with me...This simple man who offered such enlightenment to my young mind. How am I supposed to explain my brain on a date? I think with my heart. I am way beyond wanting to go try tapas and sample different wines. I need spiritual connection, and I am connecting to the sound of the rain on my roof right now. The simplicity of the night...calming and reflective. People are not always so kind or what you would think they would turn out to be...Honestly, majority of them are even way more lost than I think I am...But there are connections out there for me I have yet to embrace. What a wild life this is, and my gratitude to make a difference is everlasting.
