My former spouse and I settled our divorce yesterday. 

 

 

There are details and final paperwork—but it’s done. I am no longer married. 

 

 

I also had to let go of amazing people. I am retiring Defy Impossible. When I said it was the end of an era, I meant it. 

 

 

I am starting over.

 

 

Not from the ground up.

 

 

No.

 

 

On the shoulders of over 35 years of defying impossible and breathing fire. I mourn the loss—but I do not suffer. ALL of this death, this pain, this loss is an answered prayer.

 

 

And I don’t doubt God.

 

 

I refuse to do business the way I did ever again. 

I refuse to live my life half-ass or hidden— in any way, shape or form. I REFUSE to self-sacrifice my dreams, fulfillment, eroticism, and joy for other people—ever again. 

 

 

I can hear the call…

 

 

The world needs to hear my Word.

My voice. 

My wisdom.

 

 

So I’m choosing to trust God.

 

 

I’m not going to teach any more.

 

 

I’m going to focus ALL of my energy on being an artist. As a paid speaker, writer, and performer.

 

 

Be clear. 

 

 

My cash flow is low.

I don’t have a offer to sell.

I’m not touring.

And I’ve cut my team from 19 to 3.

I don’t have new money coming in.

 

 

I have walked away from it all.

 

 

In a very real way: I have burnt all the boats to walk into my destiny.

 

 

And I am unafraid.

 

 

I trust God.

I trust me.

I trust life.

 

 

So get ready world…

 

 

… I got some shit to say.

 

 

Dr. Venus

    We know life is full of bumps and bruises, but we also know you are a fighter. In the words of John Maxwell, sometimes you win and sometimes you learn. With the knowledge and skills you have, you will build again. Wishing you continued success.

    It is powerful and courageous to be the one and only you. I have moments when I feel that kind of power, deep connection to God, open as a channel to be the fullness of what God has given me this life to be. How powerful to vulnerably and openly share and show the way.

    Wow. It's amazing that there are so many people going through the same thing. I'm also going through a divorce. Mine is not final yet but soon my dear. I'm happy for you if you are happy. From the sound of your blog, it does seem you are content, if not happy right now. I'm sure you are on your way to happy. Any who, I wish you the best

    I love and admire your raw and realness. It's liberating. I was telling a brother yesterday that I'm tired of the plastics and plastic lifestyle (filtered). I know what I'm supposed to do but I'm waiting on God and the ancestors clarification. To people it looks like I ain't doing shit but to my ancestors and God they know exactly what I'm doing or gonna do. You walking your truth helps me walk mine. Thank you always..

    We are now being called to level up in this season. God is doing a new thing. No longer slaves to society, evil thinking and patterns. I have started over many times and about to do so again. #nofearinlove

    I'm reminded of a provocation given to me: "What in you has to die to be born through the ashes?" You are a gift Dr. V. In any form you choose. Can't wait to see what is created from the unknown.
