It is Monday 06/01/2020 … I have been watching local and national news, I have been on social media and have had multiple conversations and with that being said

I am Emotionally, Physically and Mentally Tired.

And now it is Monday and I have to go to work (thankful for that) regardless on how I feel about our unarmed Kings, Queens and Crowned Ones being killed by the police. I have to clock in and compartmentalize all my emotions and give the best me I can.

I started writing the post below Friday Morning. I am putting this as a disclaimer I am not stating that we should not be angry, mad, upset when I state “Calm Down” I am stating “Calm Down” so that we can RECHARGE and Continue to FIGHT….

The Calm Down:

 With everything that is going in the world concerning the life of a black person I asked myself the following questions: Where are we supposed to go where we will feel safe? Is there a safe place we can go to “Just to Breathe” and still feel secure? Will we ever be at a place where we can calm down? 

Watching the News, being on social media, trying to avoid “Orange Face” or tweets with hashtags about another unarmed black person being killed by the police will make you angry. I, myself, am not just angry but I am also confused. My hurting heart and my ever-increasing anxiety have become like an uninvited guest: showing up when I least expect and staying longer than I think is necessary. This has become the world WE live in.

Unfortunately, we are going to continue to be in a fight for ourselves, our queens, and our kings. But for us to fight we must be present, not just physically but mentally no matter how exhausting the fight seems to be.

Why is recharging so important? Recharging our crowns and our hearts is important because when they both align we can make true decisions on how we want our voices to be heard.

How do we calm down so that we can recharge?

Center Yourself:

I know it’s hard right now with everything that is going on, but before you rolled out of your bed or sometime during your workday take a moment to close your eyes, confirm to yourself who you are, who you will be, take a deep breath, and envision that invisible crown placed on you. 

Acknowledge that the crown you wear may not be visible to everyone. Tell yourself that it is not what everyone else sees, it is what YOU know. You are crowned. Be determined that no one will take your crown and remind yourself not to give it away willingly. Protecting your crown is not just a physical thing, it is an emotional and intellectually way of letting the world know that YOU know who you are.

Will recognizing your crown stop the madness that happening in OUR world right now? Maybe not. However it will help to stop the madness from taking over YOUR world.

Don’t forget your crowned and Don’t forget your Crown.
