“Life has knocked me down a few times, it showed me things I never wanted to see. I experienced sadness and failures. But one thing for sure, I always get back up.”
An issue I’m passionate about and want to change is stuff on our reservation, it’s not only on our reservation but other reservations around the world, I can’t change it for every reservation but I can try and change it for ours back in Lummi. One that I really think about is how Lummi encourages kids to go do things and face this big world. Yes I’m going back to this topic again but this one always gets to me because there are somethings they will take credit for they didn’t know about. I want to turn that around and try and make things just a little better for the future generations behind me. That’s all I can really say about today. If your really want to hear about my day I’ll tell you and sorry if you guys get annoyed with me I’m just an annoying person sorry. I honestly had a hard emotional day! Today has been exactly 1 month today since my dad passed away, so it was really emotional for me and this evening wasn’t such a good day. Really emotional and stressful so it’s been a hard day for me.
I just want to go be in a canoe with my cousins LeAnne, Amanda, and Treena and the rest of the gang, it’s something I really need right now! I need my Ultimate Warrior family right now. I need to be in the water and just paddle, sit out there and cry and just let things out so I can get back to myself, after I get off of the water and out of the canoe I feel like a great new person it takes so much away, you may feel a little sore after but I just feel like I need my canoe family right now I need all of them I need to be on the water. Canoe pulling is really eye opening for me honestly, its just something about being out on the water. It’s like you can feel our ancestors with us guiding and watching over us, whenever there is something wrong with me or I feel upset or something I think about the canoe, it’s like the canoe is my happy place and that’s where I need to be right now is my happy place. So yeah that was my day, maybe when I get home I can go out on the water and go out on the canoe with my Ultimate Warrior family.!
