My Pre-Election Vibe
…to Join the Lovelution, Mama!
Her name means “desire”
Where is she in us?
What is time before birth?

I have 3 targets on my back…I am Black. I am Queer. I am Female.
I am Black. I am Queer. I am Female.
Over a decade ago, little did I know…
I claimed, framed, and named…
My reality: Triple Treat.
What comes to mind first?!
The ideal basketball position or…
My reality. My identity.
Less ideal, in fact, threatening. So…
What is in my control?
Untangling my own web
In hopes for calling it wack…
The apathy. The depression. The anxiety. The fear.
Our society is mentally ill and…
The work must be done. The work must continue.
I know this path…
I choose love. I will always choose love.
Love is revolutionary, an evolution of love…
This lovelution with take…
Bite-sized + deliberate action from each of us ? Uncertainty, yes, maybe. And…
The reality IS the work continues. One foot in front of the other ?
While I want each and every one of us to feel this darkness + pain ? hate + fear despite it being uncomfortable to sit in this place (I know, my experience as a Black queer mamapreneur with mental illness is a testament) and this is where we are…
Check-in with your core
Yep, your heart ♥ Remember, it’s a muscle. Opening and contracting on repeat.
Regardless of politics or who YOU voted for President
What’s the whisper saying…
Could you have done more?
Is it time to have that conversation with a friend or family member?
Both in our families of origins, as well as our chosen ones.
What advantages do you take for granted?
What roles or positions provide an imbalance of power?
As we grapple and then ask again…
How is it possible?
When each and EVERY one of us
Created + nurtured in the womb of a woman
Are unable to trust our source of life?
And then we…
Wonder why in the self-doubt…anxiety…silence that
We struggle to trust one another, let alone ourselves. So…
Let me be clear
Trump is NOT my champion, Mr. Pence.
To be fair, neither is Madame Secretary. So…
What happens when I do not agree with your vision of America?
Now claiming to be a President for ALL Americans!?
Something now being promised, that should have been clear from the start.
America doesn’t become great now that YOU just say so!
SO that now the forgotten can become the oppressor?
Why should I believe YOU now, Mr. Trump?
No, Donald. You weren’t lucky. It’s called privilege.
White, male, cisgender, heterosexual PRIVILEGE.
And, now we get to see you cheer on more white folks…
While half of the country mourns and grieves being
Unexpectedly smacked by the glass ceiling STILL in 2016.
There are those of us who sit at the intersections,
Ready to step into our power….
Starting with the personal and moving outward…
This is where we start! This is how love becomes revolutionary. Love that evolves our country forward. A country we love and proudly want to teach our kiddos to love and respect what makes us the same AND uniquely different. This difference is what is woven into the tapestry of our country, we ALL call home.
