I'm Listening. I'm Learning. I Stand With You

Written by Susan Vernicek

I apologize if you ever felt that my corner of the Internet was not a welcome and inclusive place for you.

It’s been a week with so many emotions, tough thoughts, and conversations. I’ve been taking this week slow and much quieter than usual. 

I know there are many important people with so many important things that need to be said and heard.  I wanted to make sure that every single BIPOC in my community knew that I am here, and that I am listening, and that I stand with them.

Because I am.

I’m 100% a loving and embracing woman who welcomes all kinds of human beings—any age, shape, color, or beliefs.

I apologize for pausing, and not speaking sooner, but this is something I’m working on and have been working on for years—stronger communication and sharing my voice and others even more.

Black Lives Matter

I apologize if you ever felt that my corner of the Internet was not a welcome and inclusive place for you. 

No matter your race, religion, skin color, or sexuality—you are welcome in my corner and you have always and will always be welcome to share your voice through my space, especially on IdentityMagazine.net 

This anti-racism and inclusion journey is new for me and this is not my lane. I am not and will not try to teach ever on this topic because this is a space for our leaders in the BIPOC community.

I teach about mindset, health, and wellness—stepping into your true and authentic identity. And we are learning now, more than ever that we must stand and support others so that they can also stand in their true identity.

I am once again committing to claiming that I am a life long student.

And for anyone else who is feeling called right now to learn more, listen more and do better like I am, these are a few of the amazing links I have found useful so far, so we can learn together.

Identity Magazine is all about guiding women to discover their powers of Self-AcceptanceAppreciation, and Personal Achievement.

We ask that every contributor and expert answer the Identity questions in keeping with our theme. Their answers can be random and in the moment or they can be aligned with the current article they have writtenIn that way, and as a team, we hope to encourage and motivate each other, thus inspiring you to Get All A’s.

1. What have you accepted within your life, physically and/or mentally? Additionally, what are you still working on accepting? Now, we’re not talking about resignation, rather stepping into, embraced, and owned.

I accept responsibility to listen, learn, even more, support even more, and help the #blacklivesmatter BIPOC movements.

2. Appreciation is everything. What have you learned to appreciate about yourself and/or within your life, physically and mentally? On the other hand OR in contrast, are there elements of who you are that you’re still working on appreciating?

I appreciate those who within the BIPOC voices sharing and teaching and willingness to share their stories so we all can have a deeper understanding.

3. Share with us one of your most rewarding achievements in life? Tell us not only what makes YOU most proud but also share the goals and dreams that you still have.

I’m most proud of the voices standing up and the impact one by one is making. Every layer of support, share, post, or story will help this movement win. I am learning and commit to being a forever student. I am continuing to do my own work.
