Heart got real busted open today. Because two humans with stories I couldn’t relate to shared truth, enthusiasm, purpose and gratitude that I could. They were straight inspiration on an IV to my soul. Real #batshitgrateful for our @express contest winners today. Real grateful.
HANDS FUCKING OFF. Get psychotic white-men’s hands off guns. And get hands off women’s bodies, our bodies, my body. How about that for a policy? Raging at how fucked law-makers’ priorities are.
My reflection for today is that in this “fine” nation of ours, it has taken me longer to obtain an IUD (intruterine device) method of birth control than it would for me to obtain a firearm in many states. Even with amazing medical insurance, that is straight up FUCKED LOGIC. 🚨Tomorrow’s agenda in the House of Representatives is to strip away more autonomy from women’s own bodies. DEAR FRIENDS, please flood the phones and tell your reps we don’t want our tax dollars spent on taking away the autonomy women have over their bodies!!!!!!! 🚨TELL THEM INSTEAD WE WANT REAL, SWIFT GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION! TELL THEM TO GET THEIR DAMN PRIORITIES STRAIGHT!!!!🚨 Details of the legislation:
Tomorrow the House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on a ban on abortions 20 weeks post-fertilization (The so-called “Pain-capable Unborn Child Protection Act” (H.R. 36) This is another attempt at eradicating women’s right to choose across the country. Today’s #DailyRevolution is to call your representative and urge them to vote no on this unconstitutional, anti-choice bill.
This bill would decimate access to abortion across the country. Already a dozen states have 20 week bans on the books, forcing women in these states to cross state lines if they seek abortion care. Low-income women who need more time to come up with the funds to get an abortion will be the most harmed by this legislation. Furthermore, this bill would put health care providers in prison for up to five years for performing an abortion after 20 weeks.

Anyone know how to edit a book? Me either. But I owe @amshih some magic in t-minus 29 days. So, I'm in my comfortable creating place: cross-legged in the #writinghat with the words on my lap and #oprahcandle lit the fuck up. And @glowmaven 's book beauty near me for inspiration on what it looks like to create pure, helpful magic. I think I need to read my own chapter on doing the thing even when you have no idea what you're doing. #diaryofabookdream#sendhelpvibes#hustlewithheart
