Black Women's Day of Meditation is a relatively new group that boasts only 82 followers on Instagram and 14 followers on Twitter. A few of you have checked out our website and for that we are thankful. However, it's easy to become discouraged at times when we think about the magnitude of what it is that we will accomplish in a few months.
We are summoning the largest group of Black women to meditate on the same day, focusing on healing and peace for ourselves and the world. While it's not necessary for us to physically be together at the same place at the same time in order to fulfill this mission, it still requires massive coordination and outreach.
Thinking about this today has been a bit overwhelming but then I remembered that small beginnings are the best kind. Why? Because they are allowed to grow in uninterrupted peace. We're moving along steadily, making mistakes, sharing our successes, building our foundation and taking all of the time we need in order to do so. Eventually, we will come out into the light - bright, bold, beautiful and bigger than anyone could have ever imagined.
But until then... we are a small beginning. And for that, we are grateful.
