I don’t feel like I saw it coming, July, but she’s here and demanding all kinds of attention. So Happy Summer everyone. This current season seems like a pretty emotional one, I don’t normally equate summer heat with melancholy emotions. However, it makes sense. There is so much going on more than ever: Game of Thrones Finale, Global Warming, Global Intolerance, and Flea season rounding in, so I think everyone is just a little tight wound.
If I were to guess I’d say that this half of a year marker is just what we need. New Years round two. Meaning I will be dedicating this time to reevaluating my goals and detonating my bad habits now. July feels like a second chance to look yourself in the mirror and say, “girl, is that really the best you got?”
I am rethinking how I spend my time and therefore cutting out TV while aiming to read 5 books this summer… see selection below.
p.s – I am taking recommendations for my fifth book.
So, in light of this season, and all that is beseeching to be uncovered. I’m sending you love and encouragement. Mostly love. Thank you June, for pride month and the call to be an intentional member within your communities. We hold that in our hearts. Onwards July.
I am sorry for the lack of published posts lately. I have been doing a lot of writing for myself (as well as exploring other creative forums) a concept I have never truly embraced. I love it so far, there is no pressure and I have a deep feeling of pride in myself and my ability to create something beautiful. I don’t plan on being away for long but I also have no plans of halting this magical time of actualization I am finding through my writing. I have complied quite a few new pieces, maybe one day I will share with you all. Until then, keep up with my writing page: https://www.instagram.com/missparisiab/
Current Highs: I have been practicing vulnerability. Being in a relationship has pushed me to new levels of myself that would have never before been possible. But it has also shown up as the biggest challenge and most uncomfortable process I have ever gone through. I don’t know if it’s the best thing to have happened over my life. All I know is that practicing vulnerability in the safe space of my lover, led me to leading a meeting at the nonprofit I work for about Workplace Vulnerability. It led me to being the most vulnerable I have ever been when talking to my sister about mending our relationship. It led me to be vulnerable with the people who have rejected me the most. So I don’t know. But I have a lot of gratitude for the kind of love that transforms you from the inside out.

July Intention / Reminder: Uproot that within you that is halting your growth. This month is dedicated to holding yourself accountable for how you take up space. Are you communicating your deepest needs?

Listening on Repeat
July Focus: Translating my Deepest Needs
Deepening– In order for a plant to grow you must plant it deep enough. I don’t know if that is even right and perhaps this is why I fail at deepening relationships. You decide.
Rooting– For when your soul is begging you to start but in totality you don’t have the necessary tools to begin. This line rhythm will help realize the lie you’re telling yourself.
GG- My dedication to the life death life cycles in my life. To the ones that evaded me and to the passing away of my grandmother.
