It’s time for … a quickie, of course

Sexual passions

Do you know it? Do you know that release of pure enjoyment and ecstasy? I only ask because that’s what I thrive on – well, that’s what I used to thrive on, at least.

For many years I focused on that passionate release, and now it’s taken me to a road of writing and encouragement. I always said, “I’ll never move back to the Bay Area,” And here I am planning my life to further my dream of living there again. Nothing is concrete, but I cannot explain to you how my memoirs have pushed me through into an entirely different – but oh so perfect – direction in life.

After graduation, I was pissed off with everything because the system is so corrupt. I didn’t want to be part of it. I still don’t. I’m talkin’ rEVOLution. I’m talkin’ commUNITY. I’m talkin’ pure light and love, y’all. Unconditional love, compassion, and the ability to talk through our struggles. I’m talkin’ prison outreach. I’m talkin’ motivational speaking. I’m talkin’ youth mentorship. I’m talkin’ LIVING THE DREAM!!! We all have a dream, right? I’m now working on accomplishing the goals and dreams I have set forth. And, by the looks of things, there’s a kingdom waiting for Us…

Dream big, please!

Take a step forward, please.

Forget about the fear, please!

I promise you … moving forward to accomplish a dream is the best thing in the world. I encourage all of you to start living your dreams because it’s about time we start living in a place of light and love … Many blessings, y’all!

More will come, of course. I just wanted to let y’all know that I haven’t gone anywhere. My book is in it’s last stages of edit and this Bay Area Harlot will tell her freaky tale … Much love!

Keepin’ it real ~ Doin’ what we gotta do ~ Risin’ above

One of the main things I’ve come across lately is people wanting to make a difference on a real level. I am surrounded by academia. Just today my professor told me, “yeah, it’s going to be hard as fuck!” That’s real! Yeah, okay it’s not professional on the level that people think professional should be, but it was real. I have had those moments when I would say things like, “This is bullshit,” in class or even in a meeting. Yeah, people look at me strange at first, but they’re all real people and they get over it – I get over it. My co-worker and I have said some brutal, raunchy things behind closed doors. I’ve had people come up to me who were going through some emotional struggles and every other word she said was “fuck” or “shit.” We’re real! We’re getting shit done and we’re making a change. People in the professional realm are starting to be real.

We may not be controlling shit yet, but we will be soon! I have faith we will be stronger than ever before and history will not fully repeat itself this time. I believe that we are a greater number fighting against the machine. I have faith that there are millions more people speaking up about the needs of the people. We’re stronger then ever before. Corporate America will crumble. Politics will change. Corruption wouldn’t be so common. I think there is hundreds of millions people who will continue to rise above the old. They will see the past and want to change our present so our future will be rewarding and something to look forward to, for all of us.

I watched a movie today, in class.It blew my mind. They dissected this statement:

Culture always builds on the past
The past always tries to control the future
Our future is becoming less free
Build free societies you must limit the control of the past

I am seriously blown away because this has been the conversation I’ve been having with so many people. Like I said, I believe there’s going to be a revolution. I’m not going to sit here and say when it’ll be, but I do believe I will see if in my lifetime. Things are changing. They will continue to change, too. I think our past has finally taught us something and people are noticing.

There are so many directions I can go right now, and honestly, I don’t know if I want to touch upon any of them at the moment. It would change the point of this blog post. So, I’m just going to continue with this idea of history repeating itself and how I believe there are more people fighting against the machine as there was before. There’s a new generation being born – it’s something new – it’s different – never before done. The information we have – on multiple levels – is better then ever before. The people who have been in control are a dying breed. We’ll always have racists and ignorance. We’ll always have fights and even war. We’ll always have heartache and struggle to survive. However, I do believe they will be fewer and less corrupt or deadly.

The reason I feel this way is that I see people doing small things within their own communities, trying to make their community a better place. I see organization leaders and activists getting degrees. I see poetry, artistry and passion. We’re all doing our part to make our worlds better places to live. The people I have met are keeping it real. Those who don’t know how to keep it real aren’t going to succeed in this new culture that’s being built. Those who don’t know how to respect other people’s real won’t succeed either. This new culture is making a difference. We’re fighting. We’re growing. We’re intelligent, good looking and professional. We’re passionate, real, and can hold a conversation. We say fuck on a regular basis. We’re tattooed, pierced and listen to a lot of music. We create connections, not corporations. You know who you are. I’m calling out to you. If you’ve found this blog, there’s a reason for it. You’re empowered. You have something special that nobody else has. Find what that is and rock that shit! Keepin’ it real! People will like you if you like you. The more you’re real with yourself the more real you’ll be with others. The more real you are with others, the more they’ll love you. Kick fear in the neck! Pull sorrow’s hair. Slap negativity in face. Rise above it all!

We must transcend. We must follow through. We must continue to fight. We must have faith that we will win and see a world that is worth fighting for. I believe we can. I have faith that working with the people I work with will change the culture and help us rise together and find a new way of living!

Finding inspiration, encouragment and motivation from Women who have changed their worlds

As tears flow down my face, I’m thinking about all the women before me who made a difference in the world. I’m thinking about women like Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, Maya Angelou and Malala Yousafzai. I’m thinking they are my strength to further my dreams and become the woman I’m meant to be – the woman I dream to be – the woman I know I can be – the woman who will look back at this blog post and say, “yeah, that’s me!”

It’s important to find people who inspire us. I’m a social activist (to stick a title to it) so the people I look up to are people who have changed their world in social manners. The women I idolize are women who have shown courage, passion, love and understanding for their fellow human beings. That’s something I’m capable of doing, too. I do if often. I enjoy doing it. I do it well! That’s why I look up to those women. When I first learned about each of these women – all at different times in my life, of course – I learned that their message was still ringing clear. Even though some of them have passed from this realm of living, their message is still living on.

The words of those who died are stronger now than when they spoke them because it shows that things really haven’t changed. Over the years, after their bodies have died, their words live on. That’s what keeps them alive, I think. They’re very much alive today as they were years ago. That’s amazing! I believe, now, that we need to remember the strength of our ancestors if we are to accomplish our dreams.

So, go find someone to look up to. Find someone who inspires you. Find a cause to live for. It doesn’t matter what it is. If what inspires you is science, art, music, activism, or even extreme wrestling, go for it! Find someone within the topic to which sparks an interest and follow your passions! It’s the only thing that will keep us moving toward our goal of living a pure and happy life. Learning about people who are similar to us and learning about their struggles and accomplishment gives us a sense of connectedness that cannot be broken. It gives us hope. It gives us motivation. It gives us strength and understanding.

Here are a few quotes from the women I idolize!

“I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.” ~Rosa Parks

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” ~Harriet Tubman 

“We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… we must do that which we think we cannot.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt 

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ~Maya Angelou 

“I raise up my voice-not so I can shout but so that those without a voice can be heard…we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” ~Malala Yousafzai

Good luck finding your inspiration and dreams! I believe you can do it. All of these women believed in you too! Happy journey!
