Hey, Hey. So I just want to say, Hey, and I’m really excited to talk to you today about something that has come to my attention, that I want to help out some other women. And I’m sure this is something that a lot of you are thinking about in this crazy time. And it’s something that I know we are struggling with as the world is a little crazy right now, so, okay. I’m just going to start. So I actually had a really great call this morning with a very dear friend of mine, and we were talking about how right now we all know I’m a Latina woman. I’m very proud of it. And the world right now, you know, is a little bit crazy with, just recapping it’s June 5th, 2020 a week, almost two weeks ago. Maybe Mr. Floyd was murdered by a terrible group of human beings. And now the world has woken up to the atrocities that are actually going on in the world with people of color. And so now we are facing a lot of confusion on how we need to help our brother and sisters of color. Okay. And as a white woman, she felt guilty about advertising and about, you know, putting herself out there and about, you know, really promoting her business and just starting her business pretty much, you know, because she just figured out, you know, her marketing and she just figured out what she wanted to do and everything. And, you know, I said, no, like right now is the exact time to do it because there are people of color out there that don’t know how to say what they need to say.
You know, and this, this woman is, she eloquently can take someone else’s voice and put it out there. She is such a good writer. Okay. And so I told her, you know, you can put it out there that you can help others. Okay. Because, and that’s what we need to do. We need to continue to help others. We need to, you know, put it out there that we’re here for you. We are here, we hear you and we want to help you. All right. And that’s what I’m saying. And I’ve already said this, and I will say this over and over again. I love everybody. We are a human race. And I’ve always said that there’s not multiple races. We’re one race, we’re human race. I believe, yes. Black lives matter. It’s not all lives matter. Black lives matter. Yes. All lives matter.
Yes. Right now black lives matter. Okay. and I think that right now is the time to pay attention to what’s going on in the world. And we need to open our eyes to the nastiness that’s happening. And, she agreed with me, she obviously knows that it’s nasty. What’s happening in the world. And she’s been educating herself and everything, and she feels terrible. The conversation started with how heavy our hearts are with everything that’s happening. And she asked me how I’m dealing with it and what I’ve been doing. And this is the first week that I haven’t really done any work because it hurts me too much. I have been crying on and off all week. I am a mom and I’m probably going to start crying. Now I’m a mom of two boys that I love more than life. I couldn’t even imagine, I couldn’t imagine if anything like that, or if they had to live those kinds of lives. I couldn’t imagine having to teach them that they needed to be scared. And they had to go out and be scared. I couldn’t imagine, I couldn’t imagine having to worry about them every single day, more than I already do, because the world is scary as it is. And I couldn’t imagine having to be scared about them going out and worried about them being scared of the people that are supposed to be protecting us. Like, no, NO. And so, I’m sorry.
So I told her, you know, they need your voice. They need you, they need you, they need your help to capture their voice. Because a lot of people, they don’t know what to write. Regardless. Like there are a lot of, there are a lot of people of color that aren’t writing anything either because they can’t, they can’t express themselves because they don’t know how. And this woman is…she’s brilliant. She’s brilliant. We know me. I’m not, I’m not someone to fluff anybody up. I’m a very honest person. I try to just speak, speak the truth always. Regardless of people’s feelings, because that’s just how I am as a person. And I feel like, and I truly feel like she would help so many people by just doing that, by letting them know that she’s here for them to help, spread their voice, spread the word. And so I’m going to say this to you. If you are someone that has a gift and you are afraid to market yourself right now, because of everything going on, please don’t be, please let them know that you are here to help them. You, you are open to helping everybody and you want to give them a voice. If you’re a writer or you, you know, you’re open to, you know, me, I love everybody. Like I just do. I get along with everybody, I’m good with everybody. If you’re an asshole, I’m gonna treat you like, you’re an asshole. That’s all there is to it. Like I judge people by their soul. I don’t judge people by what they look like.
It’s that cut and dry. I mean, it’s, I don’t, I don’t understand why that’s a hard thing to comprehend. I never, I never understood why that was a hard thing to comprehend. Yeah. I, I feel as though our world is so scary as it is that we shouldn’t be making it any worse. So I’m, I’m not going to be wanting to do that.
So yeah, so if you are able to help and you say that you want help truly, truly do it truly be open to working with any, and everybody don’t say that you will, and then like turn down people because that’s just wrong. Truly open yourself up to networking and like friending any and everybody that you can, I mean, you will be amazed at the people you will meet. I’ve met so many amazing women and I’m just so excited to work with people from, I love meeting new people and like working with people from all walks of life. It’s just, it’s something that I feel like we need to all start doing and I’ll start learning. And I think that it will really help to start reshaping our world and re-shaping our beliefs in the world.
It will help our kids’ futures and you know, them learning by example, you know, our kids are going to see us being human and treating other, like they should be treated. And I feel like that in and of itself is the most important thing, period. I mean, if our kids can see that we can get along with one another, regardless of what we look like on the outside, I think that that is the most priceless gift ever because I mean, there’s enough hate in the world. I mean, why do we need to continue adding to it? Yeah. Okay. I just, I wanted to say that I’m really happy that you watched this, I hope that you are having a great day or night depending on when you’ve seen this. Thank you so much. And yeah, enjoy. Yeah.
