I woke up this morning, looked at the ceiling and took a few deep breaths,
Sleepy tears left my eyes.
I wasn’t crying, just letting my body do its thing.
I reflected on my life and I reflected on other people’s lives.
I’ve been contemplating buying the audiobook for “Becoming” by Michelle Obama.
It goes without saying, that she is one of my role models.
When I think of her, I also think of Beyoncé.
Is that weird? lol.
I think Beyoncé is a role model. Depending on what you aspire to. lol.
I think of Oprah
I think of Maya Angelou
I think of Ava Duvernay
I think of Kamala Harris
I think of Ruth Badger Ginsburg
I think of Angela Davis
I think of Audrey Hepburn
I think of myself. What is my life like? What impact am I making on my family and my community? Am I living my best life?
Do I feel that I took too long to get where I am today?
The answers are varied but not unacceptable.
In the grand scheme of it all, life meanders and flows in the way that it wants.
We’re all here for the ride.
If we think it’s fun and games… If we think it’s serious business… If we are unfocused… If we take charge…
What will it all mean?
Should I have made different choices growing up? The world may never know. lol
But I am glad to be here.
