Privilege

Great Afternoon my readers!! It’s been awhile since I post a blog. I’ll be sharing with you about what’s been going on with me. But before I do that, let’s abundant our day. May we abundant the day for ourselves and our family. May our work be our prayer for good for ourselves and our family. May we continue to be grateful for life so that we may continue to experience gratitude, abundance, happiness, laughter, smiles, and everything else that serves our higher good. So mote it be ASE!

These past few months has been flying and here we are in the winter season. Well where I’m at, we had a snowstorm last night. Today they issued a travel ban. Snow plows been stuck on the speed bumps. These speed bumps were installed over the summer and here we are dealing with the headache behind it. Welp they just goes to show that my city didn’t think about the trouble it would cause in the winter. Enough about my city, just know we’re cold over here. Brrrrrrr.

As many of you may know, I’ve been teaching sign language to the community as well as spreading hearing loss awareness. I’m currently teaching at a charter school grades k to 8th. The kiddos definitely keep me on my toes to keep them interested and engaged. What I noticed is that kids learn best and quicker through play. So all my lessons are through play and I love it. It really gave me an amazing idea how I want to move forward with my future lessons. I’m so grateful for the opportunity the community has given me to teach them something of importance. My heart is forever full.

As I continue evolve and elevate in my greatness, people I once trust and looked up to removed themselves from my circle. And there were a few I had to remove myself and trust me it wasn’t easy. You’re probably asking how it wasn’t easy when you can simply just stop associating with them. It’s not easy as it seems and I’ll tell you why. The pill that was hard to swallow was accepting the fact that people won’t and don’t want to see you as how you see them. Ouch! You may look at them as a friend, sis, bro, family or what else, but they don’t see you like that. Ouch again!

But let me tell you, the journey to success is a lonely road. However at the same time it’s rewarding. It depends how you choose to perceive it. There will be many people who will talk about you, because they lost the privilege to be in your presence and to even talk to you. Therefore they’ll do whatever is necessary for them to feed their ego and to feel good about themselves. Don’t even let that get to you and don’t entertain the nonsense. It’s a powerful thing when you master your emotions. No response is a powerful response itself.

Now with all that being said there is one month left in 2022. Think about what you are going to leave behind in 2022. And think about what you will be starting 2023 in. Think of a theme for 2023. My theme for 2022 was “Self Love” and I’m finishing 2022 off strong. I’ll be doing another post sooner than you know to talk about themes. Remember you are privileged no matter what you have and what you lack. You alone is enough! I look forward to writing again and I should have a new name for the blog as well. That’s gone be a post itself. Until next time, be grateful for you and love on you! Goddess Kamil with a K

Are You Living?

Great Ra’sing Readers! Let’s abundant our day for ourselves and our family. May our work and intentions be our prayer for good for ourselves and our family. May we continue to be grateful for life which gives us another day to heal, celebrate, smile, laugh, and do the desires of our hearts.

Readers, how was your weekend? I hope it was good and full of positive memories. I’m really trying to write this blog today. I’m actually lost for words not knowing what to to really say. But I’ll let my hands do the talking as I type. My weekend was bittersweet with mixed emotions. My city, Buffalo, NY endured a mass shooting in Tops grocery stores. Not only that, there were two separate shooting incidents followed by the mass shootout on the same day. I’m pretty sure you heard it on the news repeatedly and/or read it in the newspaper or maybe learned from others.

The shooting has caused a lot of fear among civilians in my hometown. We continue to be killed because of the color of our skin. I don’t understand why we can’t get an anti-hate bill. Every other race gets an anti-hate bill without a problem, but when it comes to us, it’s a huge problem! I just don’t understand how this world works and why we’re hated so much. It’s unbelievable! That’s all I have to say about that situation. I don’t want to feed into the energy of fear and intimidation. This is why I don’t watch the NEWS, because they do a great job in causing fear among civilians. I pray for the families of the 10 that are deceased and the three who survived as well as those who were there in the store working and/or shopping. Their lives will never be the same.

The next day after the incident I had to model for the fashion show. It was not what I expected. There were too many last minute changes. However, I learned that in life you’ll have to make last minute changes for something to work out. I was also reminded to stop doing for people that you should be doing for yourself! And also to stop doing for others that can do for themselves! Why put in the work for someone that don’t want to put in the work for themselves? Remember life is what you make it.

After finishing several projects over the weekend for other people, I decided this was it. I have to stand my ground and put myself first. And that’s not selfish at all. I refused to allow people to make me feel guilty for doing so. Besides what’s the purpose of life if you’re not living? When are you going to start living? Don’t say until things start going well for you. You have to create the moment or else you’ll lose the opportunity.

I challenge each of you to ask yourself, “Am I living?” If not what are you waiting for? Take steps to protect yourself and your family. Take steps to putting yourself first, it’s all a part of self care. Stay safe! Love and Light!
