I am excited to announce my new podcast will be launching soon! I have been incubating this idea since summer 2019 with an anticipated launch of November 2019. "More Than Metaphors" is a virtual love space for those poetic and poetic-ish voices to examine the question: What happens when we find the courage to live our poetry out loud? A conversation led by Author, Educator, Entrepreneur and Poet Dr. Kecia Brown (“Dr. Kecia”); More Than Metaphors combines guest interviews and posts from Dr. Kecia’s blog which focuses on transformative learning, love, justice, and liberation. Each episode of this podcast will provide encouragement for leading more meaningful, spirited and poetic lives.
Even during these times of distress, uncertainty, trauma, pain and loss, we can still uphold love in our lives. Sis, those incense fumes and all that lemon ginger tea has you all the way messed up! We are losing our minds out here*!?@#! Whether personal or professional, whether long-distance via Zoom, in our physical living spaces, or even during disasters--Love fuels Liberation. And those two together can help fuel our possibilities.
!New Blog Post Alert! My Valentine's Gift to You May we reclaim this day set aside to celebrate romantic love, as a day to celebrate how much we have overcome in the face of everything that has attempted to destroy our ability to love. All of the hate, delusion, cowardice, complacency, nihilation, corruption, psychosis, neurosis, hypocrisy, rejection, micro and macro aggressions, and plain old unkindness and disrespect. You are still here! Despite and in spite of decisions that could have destroyed you or even the selection of partners that were (or are) undeserving of the exceptional love you / we have to give, you are still here and you are still loved. Regardless of who has tried to use you in the past or who may be plotting to use you in the future, you are still loved. Click link in my bio to read the full post
Do you have any stories of regret versus risk and what have you learned from them? For me, I can recount situations where I truly regretted the outcomes (clearly not reaching out to Ms. Tyson is pretty high on my list). I also can relive those times I have taken a risk and was better for it. What I am going to encourage myself to do moving forward (and would love for you to try it out with me), is to use regret in a more concrete way in order to actualize my liberation and further embrace my purpose.
