i’ve been trying to find the right words for a week now… the right words to accurately describe what this years @goldenglobes meant to me. what it meant to walk that carpet hand in hand with my sister @calinalawrence as she spoke so fearlessly and gracefully about the realities indigenous women live with day in and day out. what it meant to wear responsible jewels from @forevermarkusa who donated a generous amount to @timesupnow. what it meant to witness hundreds of my colleagues & peers wear black in an effort to visually represent the unification of our voices & intentions. what it meant to witness an industry that for so long has been divided by competition, fear, ego, jealousy, comparison (all products of patriarchal conditioning) radically put aside these destructive paradigms in order to unite & heal. what it meant to witness that fiery truth @oprah shared in person while tears streamed down the cheeks of her audience. what it meant to see so many men standing tall & listening earnestly to women who for so long have been silenced-to see them genuinely care to help heal these scars both genders bare. from the week i took to process it all, i suppose i can say this: it meant that my children have a shot at growing up in a world where women, and men, across ALL industries put their seeming differences aside in order to support one another’s healing. it meant that we are learning to remove labels & stand united no matter what cloak we wear. it meant that we are slowly but surely ushering in sacred matriarchy. it meant that we are living in a time where our voices can be used to carry & amplify all those songs our ancestors sung as they too fought their battles & sacrificed their lives for us. it meant that we are realizing, divine love. to all of the artists who won last sunday: congratulations. thank you for moving us to our cores. & to all the people who stood in solidarity (& continue to) in the @timesupnow movement, thank you for your hearts. we’re only at the bottom summit of this mountain called Healing, but hey, we gotta start somewhere. and, this is what we were made for. we were born to do this shit.
