Great Early Ra’sing! How are each of you? I hope your summer was fun, relaxing, and everything you desired it to be. Let’s abundant the rising for ourselves and our family. May our work be our prayer for good intentions for ourselves and our family. May we continue to express gratitude for life, its another day to laugh, live, and do the things we wanted to do. So mote it be! Ase!

Here we are about to experience autumn πŸ‚ weather. I look forward to the leaves changing colors hence the post title “transformation”. Autumn brings on spiced cider, apple cinnamon aroma, pumpkin spice, and so much more. πŸ˜‹ I’m excited. Are you excited? I hope so.

Tell me what do you think of transformation. Transformation can mean many things. It is more related to change for the better. You leave behind the old to embrace the new. The four seasons (spring, summer, autumn, winter) is a perfect example of transformation. Sometimes we don’t realize we went through a transformation whereas we do recognize it.

I come to share with you that transformation is normal and apart of life. Think of the journey of the caterpillar to a butterfly. Beautiful transformation right? We as humans are always transforming. And we have our reasons for doing so. Don’t feel guilty for changing for the better especially when people tried to belittle you. Remember what they do and say to you has nothing to do with you. It has everything to do with them and whatever they’re struggling with. So don’t take things personally nor make any assumptions.

During my transformation over the summer, I noticed I don’t have any tolerance for people who trauma bond. Why? Because I’m not in that same mental space anymore. In other words I no longer have conversations about what’s going wrong in my life nor I talk about the past. When you complain about life and/or talking about the past, you are replaying the events over for it to happen again in your life. The only time you should bring up the past is to share what it has taught you.

I don’t allow anyone to tell me I’m resilient because of the struggles I went through in life. Suffering/struggling are not normal yet the society as a whole accepted it as normal. That’s a topic for another day. Anyhow you really see things for what it is. This blog platform needs a new name. Why, because I’m no longer in that mental space to address growing pains. Right now I’m just thriving in my element which is teaching sign language to the community. It’s what I love to do and it’s my passion.

With all that being said ask yourself do you need to undergo a surgery of transformation. Do you need to let go of the fear and embrace your true self? It is true when you go through the transformation you will no longer tolerate things and conversations you once did. You’ll look at things from a different angle in other words see things for what it is. Be overall be proud of yourself for taking the initiative to better YOU! Until next time readers continue to be YOU and never settle yourself for anyone. And don’t let anyone pressure you or make you feel guilty for doing what’s best for you. Have a phenomenal day! Love and light ✨️ Goddess Kamil with a K

Great Ra’sing Readers!! How are you? How is your week going so far? I hope you are well and your week is going great. Let’s abundant our rising before we dive deep into the post. May we abundant our rising for ourselves and our family. May our work and intentions be our prayer for good for ourselves and our family. May we continue to express gratitude for life. It’s another day to live, smile, be happy, laughing, and to do whatever it is we want to do. So mote it be!

Today is a great day! Make sure you are setting your intentions for the day before getting out the bed. If you find yourself complaining and/or saying “I got to do this, I got to do that”, stop yourself, take a deep breath and count to 20 backwards. Once done say out loud, “I get to walk. I get to see. I get to touch and feel things. I get to drive to my vehicle.” Changing “got” to “get” is a game changer. When you’re constantly saying I got to do this and that, you’re causing unnecessary stress on yourself. But if you say I get to do this and that, you’re showing appreciation. You’re expressing gratitude.

My children and I are still enjoying the summer vacation. I teach sign language (Signing as Art) on Mondays at a library. I taught my first class on July 11th. It was amazing and interactive. It felt good to teach about my community. Everyone should learn basic sign language. I’ve taught my class to not look at sign language as another language. They are encouraged to look at it as art 🎨 Why? Because the movement of the hand creates art. It’s a beautiful thing.

I’ve been stepping outside of my comfort zone such as doing a motivational video on YouTube. That was a different experience. You can click on my channel, Kamil Gerald. Before I add anymore videos, I want to resolve the closed caption matter. For some reason unknown its not showing up on the videos. So thats my task for today. https://m.youtube.com/channel/UCekQOUZaODUhlevyItywH6g

How’s the season going for you? Are yall stepping outside of yall comfort zone to foster personal growth? Keep in mind, things don’t change for us if we continue to stay in our comfort zone. Stepping outside of that zone is where alot of things happen for you. To avoid and break out of stagnation is through action. It can be simple as rearranging your apartment, sorting through your closet to give things away, creating a scrapbook or going outside to enjoy nature. There is always something to do, you just have to get creative and just do it without hesitation. Okay my readers, I’ll be back in touch to keep you posted. If you’re still in need of some motivational quotes and/or that push to help assist you on your day, you can find me on Twitter https://twitter.com/authorkgerald?t=IhPdY_PWm3ByiANR-lrkzw&s=09 Love and Light πŸ˜ŠπŸ€ŸπŸΎπŸŒžπŸ’š
