All I Can Do …

I get asked all the time –

How can you be so productive?
How do you manage to work so hard day in and day out?
How do you do what you do?
How do you do SO MUCH in such a short period of time?!

And this past week, I do believe I discovered one of the answers. And believe it or not, it was found in the words of one of my oldest videos, one shot not long after my marriage ended, and I decided to take the reins of my own life.

The phrase that brought me so much clarity – “I don’t know what I can and can’t do yet.”

You see, as a Kwe in Canada, I grew up in a country that expected me to live in poverty with a ton of kids. It was expected that I would develop an addiction or two. It was expected that I would be the “drain on Canadian coffers” that so many non-indigenous see us as.

But my teachers didn’t see that. In school, I achieved straight A’s, from the first day in kindergarten all the way to high school graduation. In turn, teachers throughout the years told me I could be a doctor or lawyer or really anything I wanted to be.

I didn’t believe them, so I did what was expected. I became a wife and mother. I lived in poverty, in violence, and even danced with the possibility of an addiction or two for a time.

But as an intelligent woman, I knew my kids deserved better. And in time, I finally realized I did too. So I worked, and I climbed, and I achieved, and eventually even decided that I wanted to dance to the beat of my own drum by going out on my own.

So I did and I do, and I continue to …

Because I haven’t yet discovered all I can do.

You see, acquiescence is a natural human reaction to oppression, the acceptance, the giving up. But so is non-violent resistance and this Kwe chooses to resist.

The journey continues …

I love you!
