KUJICHAGULIA (Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.
In 2014 I renewed my commitment to living a life defined on my own terms.
I sat aside the expectations of others to decide how I should work and/or where I should live.
I discarded the opinions of anyone who questioned my ability to “call the shots” for my life and shut down anyone who dared to define “my normal”.
I’m blessed to know who I am at my spirit’s core and to be totally at peace with who she is.
Thankful to pass on the charge to my children to be as different, unique and diverse as they need to be, so long as it leads to true happiness and enlightenment.
Don’t live outside the box — reject the notion of a box completely.
Just live. Be. Thrive.
As long as I have breath and presence of mind, may I continue defining who I am and who I need to be according to the Law of Luckie.
With God’s grace, I have that right and you do too. EMBRACE IT today for tomorrow is not promised.

And thank you Audre Lorde for showing me the path. Walk in light Gamba Adisa. ASHE!
