Some of you are happy. That’s just suuuuper duper. A lot of us are hurting right now, though. Like, 81 percent of non-white women like me, for example. And yesterday, when I woke up, groggy with grief and shock, all I wanted was to do was dive face-first into a big chocolate cake and wipe my tears away with the frosting.
Unfortunately, there was no chocolate cake waiting in my apartment.
Not even some doughnuts.
I made do with what I could find around my apartment… once I dragged myself out of bed.
So, then I go on Facebook and one of my so-called “friends” is going:
And I’m like:
You know what? NO. I am not wallowing anymore.
I gotta get back into fighting shape. Let’s get some bone broth, turmeric and hemp seeds. Let’s have some red meat. This is how I’m eating my feelings now.
Let’s get in formation!
Maybe you’re not ready to join me yet, but when you are, I am definitely sharing my resilience smoothie with you.
