"It is, in the end, the saving of lives that we writers are about. Whether we are “minority” writers or “majority.” It is simply in our power to do this. We do it because we care. We care that Vincent Van Gogh mutilated his ear. We care that behind a pile of manure in the yard he destroyed his life. We care that Scott Joplin’s music lives! We care because we know this: the life we save is our own." - Alice Walker, "In Search of our Mother's Gardens". I think this is in essence the difference between the Savior Complex and real Liberation work. #womanism#art#storytelling#artasactivism#writingasactivism#socialjustice#liberation#depth#truth
1 week till comp 😩😭 I’m actually terrified for the ABPU North West qualifiers as this training cycle has been rough😩 - BUT my squats have improved so so much this is 50kg for 2, I’m so proud of how hard I’ve worked to get my technique where it is today, I used to hate squats and cried most Monday’s because of them not to mention spending 5 months not being able to squat the bar, I’m so so proud of myself and can’t wait to start adding some serious weight now! -thanks to @paulrogers19 for training with me and for the dodgy shaking video 😂😂😂 #powerliftingwomen#powerlifter#powerlifting#womenofpkwerlifting#lifting#strength#weighlifting#squat#depth#asstograss#strongwomen

・・・ .. or. is LOVE still the increase and overflow into pure intension and a pure heart still hanging onto what is locked and secured? TIME. has its own story to tell. w/an accuracy only WORDS contain. but man seems to be willing to take chances w/the blank pg and off microphone, expecting telepathic understanding. what you are worth to another will ALWAYS be revealed in what they are willing to DO and SAY to prove themselves above all. a lack of actual movement is also a response of how much you DON'T mean and the effort you are NOT worth for clarification. CLOCKS. TICK. whether we are there to see them or not. TREES. FALL. when no one is present to hear them. but a promise is a promise, until God says it's not. #abstractpoettree#consciousness#vision#love#i#tribe#creativewriting#timing#hope#authentic#poet#writer#spilledink#courage#poetry#health#depth#spirituality#inspiration#encouragement#wanderlust#empowerment (image courtesy of the internet) • Sabrina Claudio 🎤"Unravel Me" • James Blake 🎤 "The Wilhelm Scream"/"Are You In Love"

・・・ when everything is black n white. simple. plain. cut n dry. and you are displayed left hanging. the picture in the mind begins to dissolve what was solid in heart. when the King has been cornered by another Queen. CHECKMATE. for the opponent on the winning end. NO WORDS leave interpretation to the viewer. the WINNERS are the ones who get the SPEECH. the LOSS is in the hands of those who get silence. how POETIC is life. to answer it's own question. in a STILL. some women R so intimidating through their intensity and power. they provoke nothing more, than. NOTHING. the distance of a viewing that will never be anything more than ALL EYES ON. but no STEPS FORWARD. black n white. what IS, just IS. LOCKOUT included. standing still until God reveals His seal or a correction. #abstractpoettree#consciousness#vision#love#i#tribe#creativewriting#timing#hope#authentic#poet#writer#spilledink#courage#poetry#health#depth#spirituality#inspiration#encouragement#wanderlust#empowerment (image courtesy of the internet)- H.E.R. 🎤 "I'm Not Ok"
Owning your own shit is hard but it’s the only real liberation you can have. My clients often come to me at a cross roads. They can rattle off all the ways their partner is wrong, annoying, letting them down. But I can’t change the other, and nor can they. It’s only when we look inwards and work our own selves out that we can take practical steps to be free of the cycle of frustration, disappointment and fear. When I was in therapy during my marriage breakdown I would often begin sentences with, ‘if he’d just...’ and John would always bring it back to me. He’d say, ‘he’s not here. We’re working to help you become the best person for yourself and your kids so let’s focus on you.’ I felt powerless in those moments because I didn’t think changing me could change how my husband responded to me and the outcome. I was wrong. Find someone to do the work with and your life expands and deepens beyond your dreams x
