Be careful of Labels
Throughout my life, I’ve been able to call myself a lot of things. Some have stuck as part of my DNA coding, some I’ve passionately passed through in exploration, some have lived their moment and moved on. The piece below flowed out of me after watching Madonna’s speech after winning Woman of the Year awards. I’d love to hear who and what inspires you to be you.
I am allowed to re-invent myself. I am allowed to be who I want to be. I am many things. I am just me. I have many expressions. I can float through different manifestations of me, live it fully and let it go. I am not stuck. I am in evolution. I can choose to keep expressions that work. I’m a grown woman. I can do whatever I want. I need my sisters and brothers to find comfort in, and support when the world doesn’t always understand it. I need my people to support me in my journey of exploration. I will surround myself with those who believe in me and see me with presence. I am kind to myself so I find courage to continue to listen to my inner voice.

I am many things. I have been many things. I am everything. I am nothing.
There is no order, I am not chronological. I am an evolving vessel.
Get rid of all labels. I AM ME.
