Positive living!

We are strong✊🏾

We are strong.

You rely on that fact to hide from the realities that are in your face.

We are strong.

But at what cost to our physical, emotional, social, psychological well-being?

We are strong.

We know we have to or we are “finished” before we’ve even begun.

We are strong.

We have to prepare our children to face yours.

We are strong.

We get up, show up and pioneer.

We are strong.

We know that the change we have been waiting for is us.

We are strong.

Scratch that, we are stronger than we’ve ever been.

We are strong.

Because we have always been strong.✊🏾
