Contemplating Community

Good morning lovelies

“when the world comes crashing at your feet it’s okay to let others help pick up the pieces if we’re present to take part in your happiness when your circumstances are great we are more than capable of sharing your pain” –


Rupi Kaur, The Sun and Her Flowers

What do you think of when you think of community? For me it is what you have created and nurtured to those around you so much that when it’s your time to be held, you are overwhelmed by the love that comes pouring back to you. This has been one of the most difficult seasons I feel in my life and I could not make it through without my people. Some have been with me for decades, some for a minute and others I’ve newly met. They are my people who when I’m hurting, take off their earrings and run by my side asking “ok, where they at!?” ???????? ready to go to battle with me, for me and to speak truth to me when I’m not seeing clearly or acting right. They all know who they are because we always show up fully for each other. This community we have built together on this sometimes unsure crazy social media platform, has also played a big part in my healing, tipsy turvy, roller coaster of a ride journey as well and I am grateful for each and every one of you beautiful ladies. I hope that in some way I have given back to you in this community space. I have been blessed in so many ways by what you have all shared and been inspired as well. Let’s continue nurturing our others, whoever and whatever that means for you. They are your necessary as you are there’s. Love S
