The July edition of S.W.I.F.T Chronicles is here!
Happy Monday Folks!
This month’s edition is ready for your eyes to see. We have been working diligently to get this into your hands. This month’s theme is: Embracing Ourselves. The S.W.I.F.T. Sisters looking at where they are at in this moment. We have honored women in history and women in our personal lives. But this time around, we are looking within.
Right now, the times we are living in is very concerning. It is more important now more than ever to define who we are, shape our own identity and reclaim our truths. We are not sitting around and waiting for a biographer to write our stories. Instead we standing in our truths as the Autobiographers–the experts of our own experiences. We as Black/African American, Mixed, Caribbean, and Afro Latina women are telling our stories, authentically, in our own version and with our own style.
Dear Boxes, you do not exist to us.
To find voice, is an ongoing process. To stand in truth, is an ongoing process. To embrace who we are without internalization, judgment and self-criticism, is an ongoing process. We accept the challenge. We know that if we do not tell our stories, we are at risk of self and spiritual suffocation. And to be real, that is something we as women of African descent cannot afford. We will no longer stand by and internalize what “society” thinks about who we should be and who they think we are.
We are embracing every inch of who we are and we are striving to do so with LOVE, FAITH and PATIENCE.
Enjoy this edition!
