Q U I E T 〰️ It’s been quiet here (ok that isn’t true; Jingle is very vocal, especially when he sees his doggo friends). So it’s been quiet in the human world here. As with most of you in the white-centered universe, I’ve been reading, listening, watching. And, honestly, doing some questioning of my spot here online. Which then brings in feelings of guilt that I can even have the privilege of questioning where I belong and around we go. It’s hard for me to post pictures of flowers and my dog, captions with snarky, flippant sayings, and copywriting tips and business musings when the world is in turmoil. I don’t want to be tone deaf and blind to the realities facing the world right now. And my usual content doesn’t recognize the human welfare and civil right struggles that are squaring off. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t new to me or I haven’t noticed it until now. I have - and I have more to learn and more work to do. Here’s what I have to say in this moment. My business does not tolerate hate, racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, and bigotry. My business does stand with black lives and dismantling white supremacy. I value connection and freedom. I value living a full life. I value enabling others to live full lives as well. More specifically - I believe that if you are reading this, I value YOU (well, as long as you aren’t a hateful, racist human. Please exit if you are). Your opinions, your voice, who you are as a human….it all matters. I won’t stomp it out. I will actively help your light shine brighter. You are welcome here if you identify as she, he, they, or flow between. You are welcome here if you feel the same. You are welcome to tell me WHY you don’t feel the same (and then we’ll part ways as we prob don’t have anything in common). Writing this so you know where I stand - without doubt. This will change and include more things as I learn about them. Books are fun, y’all! And it’s possible you aren’t here for my views. You’re here to feel less alone and scared, too. Social media is *social*. So, tell me, what is something you feel is important to share or something you learned?

Looking for the helpers starts by being a helper.
I’ve been finding these @randomnoteproject messages around my neighborhood. Favorites so far. #randomnoteproject #bekindtohumankind . What would your random note say? . (Also, I would like you to know my phone autocorrected that to “ransom” soooo....👀 🏃♀️💨)
I felt something staring at me. Not sure if it was Jingle or the cow....🤔👀
