I've always had trouble with shut your mouth and keep quiet … or the colorful Cuban saying, “Los ñiños hablan cuando las gallinas mean” the equivalent of Children should be seen and not heard.⠀⠀
There were times when I couldn't speak or I'd suffer the consequences. Today those consequences are different. If I don't speak I'm one of the legions of women who've been cowed into submission by fear and feeling less than. I know this is NOT true.⠀

Even though I've experienced violence and repression – and what woman hasn't – I will not turn a blind eye to it. I will not succumb to a less than version of me or my Life. ⠀

Love doesn't call for your silence.

It does not forego loving yourself for others. This is not love. This is not true.⠀⠀
I am one voice but I am my voice. If I will not speak for me who will? So … there's risk in being YOU, in speaking true. Life is a risk!! What's the alternative, darling?

Would you rather live as a wisp of who you are?

Do you want to dampen your light and your joy and exist as a mere shadow of yourself? ⠀⠀
Today you can let go of what you've been told and discover for yourself what's true. ⠀
It's scary to be true, to be you. It's also exciting. You can feel what's true in your body. It wants to be free. It wants to be known. ⠀⠀
I've been listening to the still small voice for some time now. It's responsible for the growth in my world and the truth in my writing. Here's to awakening yours.
