Daily Toast- Kujichagulia 328171 ( redefine the story)

Peace FAM
Here we go, another great day and a new filming technique that I have been working on. Hope you like the effect. Now to redefining the our story. On this day of Kujichagulia we are given the gift of re- framing our experience in this country. We can stick with the old story, but we have to ask the question, has it helped us. If the story is not helping us in our goals of rising in this country then we need to step back and re-frame them. I have been struggling with this for a long time, because our story maybe limiting us. Along with the studies on PTSD, and PTSS we also need to identify and look at those studies of individual and groups who have developed PTG (Post traumatic growth). There are studies on individuals who have been through traumatic incidents and have grown dramatically because of the incident. They have learned to draw strength from their trauma that has catapulted them into a new frame. They appear to prosper inspite of what they have been through, and I believe we can do the same. We need to look deeply into our story and use the power of mental alchemy to transform them into what we need rather than weights that hold us in place. We are in a unique place and time in history simply because you are here. You and your story are what we have been waiting for. We need to look at the hero mythos and realize that every hero went through trauma that turned him/her into the historic person or legend that we know. We are unique because we have a whole group that has been traumatized, and continue to experience trauma, and I am simply suggesting that we begin to re-frame it in away that is empowering to us as a group and even more importantly as individuals. This constant waiting, begging, borrowing, and needless suffering needs to stop.
