The Emma Ree Food Ministry (by Nisha Strickland)
This is my auntie and her food ministry.
Waiting for my real life to begin…
I just got done watching Who’s Black in America and it has left me feeling re-energized. The educators featured on the piece were inspiring. I saw them in action and was like that’s what I want to do (to people)! I want to push imaginations, I want to stretch minds, inform, and above all educate. I just feel like there is more that I want to do with my life, but I just don’t know how to do it. I don’t know how to unlock my own potential, but I must learn.
I feel like my life is incomplete. I know that I was put on this earth for a reason, but I have yet to figure that reason out. 4 years of high school and 6 of college and I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I’m starting to think that I’m being called to be an educator…but idk yet. When I was watching the film piece something resonated within me. Will I be the next great professor? Maybe…perhaps… I wish I could tell you, but truth is idk. What I do know is that I’ve gotta make something happen cuz sitting up in my room at night feeling like I’ll never amount to anything is sucking the life outta me. I can’t do this anymore. It’s time to follow my heart and define my own destiny.
I told my mom the other day that I wasn’t having kids, and she asked me if I wasn’t having kids for real and I said yeah. She asked me why and I said because I’m not gonna find anybody to marry and have kids with. She said yes you will, but she is so wrong. I’ve already accepted my fate as an old maid at 27. It’s cool. Love, marriage, and kids is great for the rest of the world, but it’s totally unrealistic for me. #truth
It is what it is…Love don’t live here…
