Hello Flower Child 🌻,
My name is KeOnda (ke-awn-duh), and I'm honored to share this safe space with you!
Flower Child is a cultivating, JUDGEMENT-FREE, healing space; based on real-life experiences. A place where your hurt and sensitivities aren't overlooked or shamed. You don't have to be tough here because vulnerability is our superpower! Flower Child, the podcast, was created for individuals that yearn for a more authentic world around them. People who wish to rid their lives of the constant need to perform and people-please. This podcast intends to help humans come into a place of peace and develop the willpower to show up as their most genuine, unguarded selves. Specifically, those of us who yearn to heal the places we're often too scared to touch. I hope that through storytelling, you recognize that you are not alone on this quest and that you have a whole tribe waiting for you. May you hear yourself so that you can learn to heal yourself!
I reflected on this question a lot. I first learned to betray myself in my early teenage years. I was the last to break my virginity out of the crew because it was the popular thing to do. Or when I first tried weed and had a little drink. I've put myself in many dangerous situations, but today, I forgive myself. I forgive myself for doing the opposite of what I felt for the sake of having "friends." I forgive myself for giving my body away because that was the only thing I thought I had to offer. I pray that my honesty helps you dig deep and learn to stop betraying yourself. I would love to read your responses if you would like to respond to the week's journal entry. Go to the bottom of the page, and in the subject line, leave "Journal entry" You may be the one that makes it to the show! Love Ke!
It is time, to be honest with myself. I know I am capable of many things, and being honest is a must! I feel like I am in a season of intentionally learning "How To" in a more confident way. I am developing my way of being/thriving, not the ways of my family, not my wife's way, not a celebrity or influencers' way, but my way. It is trusting what I've learned from my experiences along this healing journey. Not for anybody else or reasonings other than my own, as the leader of my life. A while ago, I was blessed to have a glimpse of who I believed my higher self to be and the things I had to become to embody my most powerful self. I know patience is something that I must learn while trusting my process. I'm isolated for a reason, and being still is becoming my favorite place! Ke'Onda, I trust you!!
