I try to write a blog every week keeping you abreast of the latest cosmic trends. Other times, I write about the state of our world, offering insights as an empowerment coach. Sometimes, I do not write a blog; I am either too tired, or too uninspired. This week, I think I will just write to check-in.
Life has also just recently turned quiet. Maybe it is because Mercury is transiting the foggy 12th House of my birth chart, where it will remain for the next couple of months as this planet turns retrograde on July 26th. Or, maybe it is because I have been focused on projects that I cannot wait to launch for you very soon. Nevertheless, an eerie quiet consumes me as I enter a more contemplative space. To be honest, it feels lonely having to sit with my own thoughts; it is as if I am on a forced time out, commanded by God herself, internally processing all that is on my mind.
What is on my mind? Love. A couple of Leos. How much I adore my family. Palestine. Money. What I want to write about next. The last episode of The Handmaid’s Tale. New Orleans. Sex. Fibroids. God. How to be two steps ahead in the fight for Black liberation. The meaning of the numbers “723” and why I keep seeing them. My dad. Will I become a recluse? The yurt I want to build. Where the fuck should I live (New Orleans?)? Friends. That man in the White House. My future husband Marc Lamont Hill (he does not know it yet). Things I do not feel like doing. When I will wash my hair, and a whole bunch of other random thoughts that reflect the whole of me.
Sometimes, I feel like I am just here. Not “just here” existing, but being. Sometimes, it feels mundane, and I do not like it. Other times, I am reminded that the mundane is just another aspect of life lived in human form on planet Earth. A good quote is not always needed. Messages of inspiration are not always required. Writing an empowerment blog does not have to always involve the fancy maneuvering of words; it does not even have to be empowering. I am just here. And I am doing just fine.
How are you doing? Feel free to check-in below; I would love to hear from you.
