When I heard the absolute authority and force that is Maxine repeatedly exclaim, “Reclaiming my time” during senate hearings, something rang out in my spirit. She had every right to reclaim her time when her questions went unanswered. She had every right to reclaim her time when they beat around the bush. She had every right to reclaim her time when they tried to waste it. She had that right because she’d earned it. Recognized as the gentle woman from California, Maxine Waters is the most, does the most and is unshakable.
She has every right to reclaim her time and so do I. For every sucker, every underdeveloped manhood, every overdeveloped ego, for every mountain, reclaim your time. You’ve earned it. Time from work. You’ve earned it. Time from the fam. You’ve earned that, too. The more I learn about self-care, the more I understand reclaiming my time is making sure I have it for me.
Reclaiming my time – reclaiming my time – reclaiming my time… #newmantra
