Do you already know what your purpose here is? Like out in the big world? If so, awesome!! Lmk what it is!
If not, it's ok, it'll come... AND I can assure you, it's not just to go to work, sleep, eat, and repeat!!
YOU are here to be Up to something BIGGER!!
You impact the world every day, with every choice you make. Every. Choice. Matters.
Amazing people who changed the world, didn't wake up one day and decide to be a legend. They made choice after choice to solve issue after issue, and this became their story. And it can be yours too.
One of my favorite teachers Dr. Jane Goodall reminds us that,
"We have the choice to use the gift of our lives to make the world a better place."
A few years ago, while on a safari in Africa with my family, we visited an orphanage, where they have 18 beds for girls and 18 beds for boys. By 16 years old, the kids either graduate high school and hope to be sponsored for college, or age out of the orphanage and are on their own.
Alot of the boys graduate!! Barely any girls ever do. They don't have the same feminine products we do, so when they have their period, they are often shamed into staying home, and miss a week of school. It's impossible to catch up.
So obviously, my choices to help where to either overthrown their education systems patriarchal nonsense, or send the girls better supplies. 🤷♀️

At this point in my life, one of those is gonna work out alot better. 🤷♀️
So I raised money online, some of y'all contributed! THANKS!! 😁
🙌 And I purchased 36 pairs of period underwear, the good kind. And then we gathered a few other supplies, journals and color pencils, some pretty beads, and other treats for all the kids, and we boxed them up and sent them to Africa.
