What makes you a L I O N?
@laurenbondi: “I am woman, hear me roar. Every breath I take is done purposefully. I am love, light, and raw power; and so are you. I see the world we live in, its unceasing evolution, and know unhesitatingly that I have a gift to share. Our gifts are as plentiful as we are at 7 billion strong, and each one is equally valuable. My words are mine, my loving battle cry. They bleed life into others’ hearts. Near and far. Willing and unwilling. They beg for introspection and self-realization. They remove individual and collective filters, dismantle hate, and diminish doubt. My words provide frequent assurances that each of us is love. It is the fabric of our entire existence. It’s the gold woven into our souls and connecting all of humanity. It’s who we unwaveringly are and who each of us destined to be. Love. What makes me a lioness is my soft + intentional living, my tenacious will, my unguarded heart, and my promise to show each of my sisters and brothers that she/he is worthy of abundance. Enough, capable, beautiful, lovable, complete – they are. Together we stand.”
What makes you H U M B L E?
@laurenbondi: “I am 97% stardust. I am 70 trillion cells working together in perfect unison. I am a child of the universe. I am a survivor. I am a daughter, sister, partner, and friend; but I am one woman, in one very small corner of the world, with an entire human race surrounding her. I walk the same earth, breathe the same air, feel the same sunlight, look at the same moon as my billions of equally significant counterparts. The light I hold in my heart is the same light pouring out of you. The divinity in me always and unconditionally acknowledges, appreciates, and honors the divinity in you. Every single one of you. This human collective is a family, bound with genuine compassion. Together, we grow and evolve. We learn and share an infinite number of lessons. We celebrate our similarities and differences. We love. What makes me humble is fully recognizing that I am one tiny piece to the bigger whole. The biggest whole.”
While bloggers, writers, and influencers aren’t exactly rare these days, finding those who actually have content worth reading tend to be few and far between. While everyone has something to say, not everyone uses their voice for the good. Lo is an eloquent writer — you can feel how much she pours into life and loving others. If you’re looking to follow along with someone who actually uses their voice to benefit others solely because they want to, check out @laurenbondi’s page (and her blog!!!).
Lo, thank you so much for participating in Fierce Friday, and for being the humble lion you are! Keep it up, sister. You’re undoubtedly touching the lives of people near and far!
