Doing spoken word literally gives me chills. Hearing words spoken with such power and meaning and love behind them keep me feigning for more words and more authenticity. Let me know your thoughts! This piece is titled "Solitude" from my poetry book "Birth of a Sunflower" full video on IGTV/Facebook page "The Blu Sun" .

Ready for a confession? I used to lie. Never in a harmful way, but in an 'I don't want to look stupid for not knowing this' way. "Oh yeah, totally know what you're talking about" 😳 #ugh

Because of Confession #2... I let a lot of people frequently make me feel stupid because of things I didn't know yet. 😑
Catch that? Things I didn't know YET.
It took me way too long to realize that it's OKAY to not know, ESPECIALLY if you having a willingness to learn. I've always been eager to learn, but when that's diminished by people that have fun making fun of you? It's hard to "admit defeat". So I giggled along, pretended I knew, or oh my gracious, thanked my good Lord for Google 😂
In 2017 I had a conversation with a girlfriend after a long weekend of sun and girlfriends that I had to mentally unpack for a while ...and she said something to the effect of "why are you taking on the roll of the dumb friend when you're not dumb?" I was admittedly taken aback (and what happened following this conversation was poetic to say the least), but she was right. I'd allowed myself to get made fun of in a "lighthearted way" for too long. It just felt easier, I guess. Hurtful. But easier.

I'm smart. I'm savvy. I'm skilled. I'm talented. I'm strong. I'm funny. I'm caring. I'm teachable. I'm willing. I'm. Right. Here.

Girls. Guys too (All 3 of you that follow me 😂). Don't let other people decide how smart you are. If you're interested in learning, learn. If you're being hurt by people using you for lazy humor, move on! You're better than that.
Learn everything you can. Or at least everything you WANT to learn. And don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
IN THE AGE OF INFORMATION, IGNORANCE IS A CHOICE.

i am learning to be more intentional about this. it’s not easy—but i am taking on the challenge of not doing it all, and speaking up when i need to be supported. what are you giving yourself permission to do these days?

✧ honor your bloom. ✧⠀
✧ trust your wilt. ✧⠀
✧ each serves a purpose. ✧⠀

___________⠀

the lesson:⠀

to get back up again and again and again.⠀

to learn from each fall.⠀

to self-correct when we stumble.⠀

to understand that how we move through the world will sometimes look and feel different.⠀

to be okay when things are a mess.⠀

to bloom through the mud like a lotus.⠀

to lose petals and be born again like tulips—each and every time.⠀

coming back to ourselves, making a home out of our hearts is a blessing and privilege.⠀

i honor it all—even when it’s hard.⠀

words x @alex_elle

Remember the vision as you take on this new week. Happy Monday friends!

Notes on Writing + Truth:
Charting my affirmations helps me see things clearly. There’s a different type of understanding that goes along w/ this journaling exercise—as a visual learner and information absorber—I like charts, pictures, diagrams, AND words. Those things combined help me find clarity on what I’m working on + taking in.

The journey through grief isn’t linear. Neither is healing. They both come in waves... ・・・

T H I S || 👏🏼 these are things I’ve learned running with other alpha females who for years didn’t think we belonged in a pack together. but we do, and we’re here together, and I am so grateful for all of those people who show up for me. I’ve spent many years of my life feeling less than adequate, but when I joined this girl gang I found women who are nothing shy of extraordinary and are so unique. When everyone told me it was stupid, I did it anyway and I never have regretted a second of it. You CAN sit with us, we are a different breed. Set your eyes on those who have what you want. Get tunnel vision, get serious, and stop caring what other people think - that’s when you’ll really succeed. Show up, the rest will follow. #monat .

Here’s your Monday Mantra to take into the week ahead ✨
“I give myself permission to ask for help. Stating what I need is not a sign of lack or inadequacy, but of self-awareness and vulnerability. I am deserving of support.” @alex_elle
I’m slowly getting better at asking for help without worrying if people will judge me or think I’m incapable. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been much better at giving and supporting others than receiving support myself. I’ve said “no, thanks” so many times when I’ve needed help the most because I didn’t want to put people out. Looking back, I could’ve saved myself from a lot of stress, overwhelm and tears if I’d said “yes please” or simply asked for help. I live and learn and I hope you can too. Reach out and ask for help when you need it, it’s a sign of strength, not weakness.
〰️
I’d love to know- do you find it easier to help others or ask others for help?
