From whence I came, I must retrace. The journey with myself to this loving embrace. I do not think this feeling to be unique, the struggle of what to express and what to contain, and sometimes silence inevitably wins.
These days, I ponder more and do not let my words just fly. Perhaps I am not yet ready to commit to this long love affair with pressed letters on page, letting my feelings speak. As I have this thought a reminder comes, ‘in sharing my words I give myself to you’ and sometimes the thought makes me feel so vulnerable but I must let the words flow, let them go, for they will not remain silent for long.
Gladly speaking because of the opportunity I have been given, time is no factor for this is not a race this is endurance.
Sometimes it’s like I have forgotten how to keep going, sometimes distractions come in many forms but it is important to recognize, assess and then develop a plan of action to dispel the spell before it becomes binding.
Do not deny yourself the joys which are certainly yours if you just keep going, keep following your path. You are indeed making a way for yourself. I am making my way. Each thought recorded here is done in fulfillment of my contribution to the universe based on this calling. Remember your soul call, that which satisfies your soul the most, the best. Do not ever forget it. Do not forget why you began.
Sankofa, the Akan word from Ghana, means in English to "reach back and get it" (san - to return; ko - to go; fa - to look, to seek and take). It is said to be associated with the proverb "It is not wrong to go back for that which you have forgotten.” If you have forgotten reach back and remember, seek and take a Hold of your destiny, let it manifest.
Catch my drift. Don’t let the waves capsize your ship, stay riding the waves of your potential and prospering from strength to strength. As I remember where I began it is also is where I end, at least for now, these my words, my mind on these pages. Sankofa Bredrin and Sistren… Sankofa!
