I wanted to take a moment to recognize that I will continue to write about, share, and discuss how to continue to dismantle racism (and other –isms) and other social injustices. This is organic to myself as a social service worker so it will continue to be interwoven in what I decide to share. While I tend to think of this blog as just a spot that two people who know me well visit, I recognize that perhaps there may be new friends that aren’t aware of who I am in real life. To clarify for any new friends (hi new friends!)-I will not argue and I do no stutter when I say Black lives mater. I strive to use my privileges, platforms, and every function I have to advocate for change.
FeedFunnyMe has several ‘themes’ and I hope that readers understand that one of those is ‘always learning’. Another being, “never stopping”. Sometimes I post recipes; other times it’s about mental health, and often I post how I’m growing as a human in order to help others. This started as a way for me to share what was going on in my life, and growing in cultural competency is a big part of my life (I really don’t like that term, but it’s one that is understand to represent the broad, life-long work that we have to do). Equally, I’m here to listen and learn as well. I humbly bring myself to this space to share lessons and thoughts to engage in meaningful conversations- and I implore you to do the same. I also humbly ask that if I am off course on something I say or share and you have the space to point it out, please do.
Let’s have conversations and advocate for justice for all, folx. None of this can be done in a vacuum.
