Did you know that MATRIX,
in Latin, means "breeding female"?
It later came to mean "womb."
And both stem from mater, or "mother."
Most of us came from the womb of a mother.
And even the circuit board that makes your
computer functional is named after mothers.
Imitation really is the highest form of flattery.
To every powerhouse portal that incubated, birthed
and nurtured a precious, embodied soul...
I SEE AND CELEBRATE YOU!
Every day is yours, because without you,
your eggs, your milk, your sacrifice --
there would, literally, be nothing.
And because of you, humanity exists.
A single day will never be enough
to give you your proper praise.
The question "How are you?" is PROFOUND.
But it has been watered-down to a synonym for "Hello."
Forced or fake auto-responses of obligated okay-ness are expected.
(And if you are going through something tragic, it really doesn't matter! Every social encounter OPENS with this well-established Ritual of Insincerity.)
The question "How are you?" prompts an answer that begins with "I AM _____________."
This means many times each day, you are invited to SPEAK THE MOST POWERFUL STATEMENT that can be spoken of yourself.
And the socially-expected thing to do, is be QUICK + SLICK with your answer.
For a change... TAKE YOUR TIME, and tell your truth. ✍🏾
