If something is not yet in existence, but you can see it - visualize it, go forth and create it.
Much about our story of now has pushed us to halt, before we consume and assume, and make - or rebuild - things ourselves.
I love style and the full range and manifestations of color. I love that small ways of expressing ourselves can shake up what might otherwise be a neutral space.
Even though we can’t look forward with certainty, we can do the work of aligning what we do, with our values in order to actualize the world we wish to see, in both small and immense ways.
So whether it’s my current graduate studies, the full-time job I am immensely passionate about, my yoga practice and teaching, my projects to continue to educate myself and my community and the several ways that is manifesting right now - it will all be in the pursuit of actualizing justice, equity, and love through a radical empathy.
These creations have been my meditation. I encourage us all to get real about the truths that built us and the truths we’ve stepped away from. My vulnerability and truth often lives in my writing and as I do healing work, I hope for us all to heal together.
As we aren’t able to see each other a much beyond the Zoom screen, I hope to continue to share these pieces, the writing, and the work, with you.
Thank you for arriving here and supporting me these last two weeks and welcome to EmpathyGrown.
With love, Soraya.
