Hey Sistahs,

I can not let this busy month go forward without letting you all know what has been happening for me. I have to admit that I had been in this small funk for the last few months - nothing that was slowing me down but it was a cause for much contemplation. When I announced that this month was Afrikan Wombyn's Liberation Month little did I know that it would be more about my own liberation than others. For the last few months I have been looking at my works - things I have been doing and asking if it was contributing to my visions, my dreams and actualization of a liberated life. YES and NO...

I LUV my creativity. I feel very blessed to be so creative AND recently it has become very important to me to plant my seeds in fertile ground. I witness all too often people placing their energies out there with very little return to their personal coffers. I especially see this in Sistahs- We Give A Lot!

My Sistah Assata visited me a couple of weeks ago AND it was a breath of fresh air. She gave me a lot to think about AND we had some real truth telling sessions about our lives and the lives of Sistahs. I LUV connecting with my Sistahs - I have met some powerful and fabulous Wombyn while working on Wombyn Studies and writing this blog - now I am ready to move onward. I realize that I have some personal goals that I want to actualize and now is the time for me. I also realize that I can't just disperse my energies outward without a focus. This month I realized I was growing physically tired -not just from my online projects but my work schedule. As a result, I have decided to take a sabbatical. I am going to spend some time in meditation and make a plan for myself. I have decided to explore more of who I AM and move towards electrifying my life into unlimited possibilities!!

The Mother has been telling me that NOW is the time! She has been showing me more and more that I must ACTUALIZE my LIFE and go towards places that feed my joy, thirst and excitement for life. I am proud of what I have been a part of and don't think I am leaving anything behind instead I am working on my transition towards being a GLOBAL WOMBYN. I am now unraveling all of the rest of the little boxes have created for myself so that I take deeper breaths and expand beyond 'old stories' of self.

I am very excited about this journey. I am VERY READY!

Thanks! It is really what I needed but in a strange way it has lead to more projects, lol! But I feel great things are coming from breaking up my routine. Yes, you are not alone!
