“Men have the drive to provide for their family- it fuels their being. This is something a woman just does not understand”.
Whaaaaat?!! Is this really the belief in current circulation? That is more of a rhetorical question. I am not here to battle or call anyone out. I am here to share about this woman (ah hem…me) and maybe shed some light on dusty minds…
Every pulse of this being
Beating through my breath and body
Is a mama warrior fighting
Forget the ladder
And crush that glass ceiling
Baby, I am outside your window
Scaling that sky scraping building
Full time, part time, side jobs…
One, two, sometimes…
Earning my stripes
Throw my suit in the “provider” fight
So, with all due respect
Yes- I do understand
The drive to provide for my family
For when I rip my skin
It bleeds red, white
I wish each post I presented could be positive and uplifting. But then life happens and I become the sun closing my eyes behind a curtain of clouds. All I feel is grey. I call it a funk or a slump. But that is life isn’t it? Not everyday is sidewalk skipping, sometimes we trip and fall- sometimes…I get right back up and other times, I lay there, against a scalding backbone and wait for my legs to regain strength.
Either way, I have promised myself to be honest and authentic in this place– a collision of words from a spirit that is overcoming. And overcoming is quite a journey :))
Recently I had a slump funk and I shared it with my family here. I am overcome with love, moved by your words and truth. I read my messages and think “oh my gosh these people are incredible. They truly listen and they truly care”. So I want to thank each one of you…
Thank you so much for helping me!
You are all my superheroes, armed with love and kindness, helping to rescue this souldiers sadness.
I appreciate my family here so much.
Today I say to each one of you: You completely rock!!
So go now and rock on with your badass gorgeous unique selves!
Love ya, SG
