Life comes from seeds, stars and stories.
NEW STORY. NEW EARTH.
In my version of a new, beautiful earth…
...every mouth speaks what it seeks.
Look what such a little thing, would make insta-available:
Relief, accountability, bravery, vulnerability, constructive connection,
relational depth, actualized goals, a transformed reality... 💋
Whyyy have we been socialized to shrink, hide and silence
what our heart most desires??
Seems like it's either that, or humanity
(and its ever-splitting-nano-tribes),
goes absolutely savage,
and rips each other apart.
Where the heck have you been?!"
A motto + practice of mine is: "Use AI. Don't let AI use you."

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. ✍🏾
