Tonight, my hubby and I took Koda on a short walk. God painted quite a beautiful picture in the sky! I can't still can't believe the colors! Koda loves to "walk us" when we first start out walking. And for whatever reason, he prefers to walk on the grass between the sidewalk and the road. He will rarely walk on the sidewalk. He is a such a silly puppy! What crazy things do your pups doing when walking? #huskylove#walkingforhealth#strongertogether
If you have been on this journey for any length of time you would have heard me say WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER! And this week I want to highlight the importance of coming out from behind our devices and connecting with the people in our village who we can do real, messy, vulnerable life with! Check out this stripped back, unedited video of Steph sharing on this topic.
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."Martin Luther King, Jr.
The nights were dark, cold and silent in the mountains I visited in the late summer when I was 17. I went to disco in an unknown rural area with the neighbors of my host, all girls different ages. The girl that stayed with my sister and I to the end of the program was younger than us; the older ones disappeared. The lie that at the end we would have a return bus to the center to take the train back to town surfaced through an ambush she had with some boys while we got out. I took her side only to realize that those boys wanted a reason to hunt me and my sister. After the sight cleared completely we had to decide: hide in the cold or walk on the dark street next to a forest to get to the train; it was like 10 miles. We did walk and than we did run really hard, our hunters appearing out of nowhere. We had to bear long fearful moments, our bodies giving up, and our minds playing tricks from the screams and their echoes: the girl "Stop, I need you! They hurt me!"and them "stop, I'll rape her! I'll beat her to death!" Why? What those boys wanted out of us, strangers? There were no such called sexual triggers; we were wearing sneakers and regular clothes; we did not see them until the attack. All because we were girls? And because we had no one to get our backs? My sister had a low point of believing those voices and wanted to stop, but no, not with me: "Don't you dare on giving up, suck your belly, suck your pain! Your body can do it!" We made it! But with heavy memories.
Next day I got the chance to see her standing with a big smile in front of me wide eyed. How are you? She said good with no blink. I narrowed my gaze: are you sure you're ok? Yes, she said with a big smile. I left her forever with no other words, but adding to my trusting issues. I should've told! About why and what was lost and change the belief that She is weak allowing to be played and used by others as part of a normal life. I should've get bold on to healing that sickness. #feminine#outofdarkness#femininerising#women#abused#attacked#breakthecycle#strongertogether#artphotograp
