I know the weekend bought upon a range of emotions from the news of the Zimmerman case.
For me, I had a moment of vulnerability where I have a heart to heart with my womb about the fear of having a son, especially a dark-skinned son (if you have seen pictures of my boyfriend, you'll see why).
From there I got into heated debates with people on Facebook. That was exhausting. The only thing I'll say about that is that some people will never be compassionate towards other cultures and will always have the "victim" mentality.
But I am not here to write about that today. I want to talk about how I have been 'digging deep and facing self'.
I have survived my first week of my writing course. In a short period of time, I have already grown fond of the beautiful ladies that I have been working with. We are all experiencing the pain and beauty of every day life and amazingly have been sharing it together.
The writing assignments have been challenging because I haven't been forced to confront such uncomfortable feelings in a while. I'm learning a lot about myself and some of it, I really want to change.
Today I am having trouble with our prompt. Not because of its emotional aspects, but of how I chose to do the previous exercise. They are related to each other and I actually have to use the previous one to do this one. Without revealing what I am learning from the course (not my material to give away), I have to say how you choose to interpret instructions in the begining will have a consquence if you have to do more on the topic or related to the topic.
You're probably like, "I don't know what's she's talking about since she can't tell me about the exercise." I will share the pieces when I finish the course and maybe give you a hint on how they came about. But if you really want to know, you should take a course with Caits - my awesome birthday twin and a fantastic writer.
I just wanted to share the thoughts with you. I promise that my next post will make sense.
Peace my loves. Till next time.
