    Episode 15 She Speaks Spoken Word Poetry: Momshaming

    Hey guys! It's been a bit since I've posted some fresh content! Here is a piece I had written and recorded a while back that I am only now getting around to sharing with you, hope you enjoy!
    Have you ever criticized someone because they made choices that were different from your own? Judged them for feeding their kids too much candy, too much screen time, not enough manners...it's so easy to dish out quick judgements but step in someone else's shoes for a day and you might just change your tune. This one is for all my mamas out there, it's called "Momshaming".
    As the old saying goes, it takes a village, but nowadays, moms are expected to do it all and for the most part, alone. But mamas, remember, there's no better tribe than a mom tribe. Let's remember to support each other and lift each other up cuz no matter how much you feel like you're failing as a parent, trust me when I say, you are doing amazing and to your kid, you are amazing just as is.

    Episode 14 She Speaks Spoken Word Poetry: May Your Words

    Episode 14 She Speaks Spoken Word Poetry: May Your Words

    Intro:
    Welcome to Episode 14. As I jot down words and call it poetry, then speak them into life, I am enraptured by the power that words can have in this life. Can you tell I'm a lit major?! But seriously, considering how much impact words can have, words I often toss around carelessly, it makes me think twice before I open my mouth. Personally, my filter between thinking and speaking is paper thin so this practice of writing before speaking helps me to slow down and take caution, reminding me that my words can yield two very polar results.
     
    Closing:
    That one is called, May your words. Have you recently said something you regret? Or on the other end of the spectrum, can you recall a time where your simple words of encouragement or kindness, maybe a passing compliment, really made an impact? Before we send out more words into our surroundings, let's be aware of where and how those words will l land on the other end. On that note, I wonder how this podcast is being received on your end?

    Episode 13 She Speaks Spoken Word Poetry: My Smile

    Welcome to episode 13. This week, I'm sharing a piece that's particularly intimate for me as it touches on my vulnerabilities that I rarely let see the light of day. It's called, My Smile.
    Let's all take a moment to remind ourselves to be kind to each other 'cuz we just never know what the person beside you is going through. Even those you think are doing well or those you think you know so well, we all have a story to tell. Let's spend more time listening and empathizing rather than judging.

    Episode 11 She Speaks spoken word poetry: Little Bliss

    Episode 11 She Speaks spoken word poetry: Little Bliss

    Hello friends, welcome to episode 11. It's morning right now and I'm sitting here with a steaming mug of tea, wrapped in my cozy housecoat. I can't help wonder what you, on the other end, are doing right now, maybe on your commute to or from work? Whatever you are doing and whatever reason you choose to listen to my little podcast, my hope is that it brings you a momentary break from the day, a short pause, to give you some random musings to think about before resuming with the regular program of your mind. Like this morning cup of tea, may the next few minutes be uplifting for you. The piece I have for you today is called Little Bliss. I hope that my short podcast episodes each week may bring a little bliss to your day. May your days be filled with much bliss.

    Episode 10 She Speaks Spoken Word Poetry: Foreigner

    Episode 10 She Speaks Spoken Word Poetry: Foreigner

    Welcome to episode 10. Sometimes don't you think it's a shame that video killed the radio star?! That's why I'm personally so excited to see the resurgence of this mode through modern day podcasts. The fact that listeners don'ts have a visual for the voice they hear can possibly minimize tendencies to stereotype or categorize based on what is seen. This next piece talks about how my true identity is not simply a reflection of my exterior nor is it defined by where I happened to be born. It's called, Foreigner.
    The notion of identity is not a fixed entity. Rather, it is a permeable, ever-changing and living concept that can never truly be pinned down. Examine your own views on identity. What do you identify with? Your birthplace? Your ethnicity? Or how about the predominant culture in your life? The more I try to unpack identity, the more I realize that it is a complex amalgamation of so many diverse life factors, experiences and influences. What are your thoughts?
