Keyes to the Kingdom Manifesto​

MY NAME IS AMBER KEYES. I AM A SOCIAL WORKER, REVOLUTIONARY, AND MAMA. I AM HERE TO PAINT A PICTURE OF A BRAVE NEW WORLD, AND INVITE YOU TO START ON A JOURNEY OF SELF-DISCOVERY.

LIKE MANY, I AM A MEMBER OF AN ENTIRE GENERATION OF OVER -EDUCATED AND UNDERPAID PROFESSIONALS WHO DID EXACTLY WHAT THEY WERE TOLD, ONLY TO FIND THEMSELVES WITH NOTHING BUT DEBT TO SHOW FOR IT, JUMPING FROM ENTRY-LEVEL JOB TO SLIGHTLY-LESS-ENTRY-LEVEL JOB, WITH NO HOPE OF MAKING ENDS MEET SO THAT WE CAN HAVE KIDS, BUY A HOUSE, OR PAY OFF OUR STUDENT LOAN DEBT. WE’VE SPENT MUCH OF OUR LIVES FOLLOWING THE RULES OF THE GAME, ONLY TO FIND THAT IT WAS RIGGED ALL ALONG. OUR DREAMS OF “HAVING IT ALL” ARE LOST. WE’VE BEEN CONDITIONED TO DIVORCE OURSELVES FROM WHO WE TRULY ARE,WHAT WE TRULY FEEL, AND WHAT WE TRULY WANT. WE’VE SWITCHED INTO AUTO-PILOT, SABOTAGING OUR OWN HAPPINESS, THINKING THAT ONE DAY WE WILL WAKE UP AND ARRIVE AT THE PLACE WHERE LIFE GETS JUST A LITTLE BIT EASIER

WE TRY OUR BEST TO BE EVERYTHING TO EVERYONE, BUT IN REALITY, WE FALL SHORT IN EVERY ARENA. PARTNER, PARENT, OR EMPLOYEE… YOU CAN ONLY CHOOSE ONE. BEING A WELL-INTEGRATED AND WHOLE HUMAN PERSON IS NOT AN OPTION.
WE HAVE BEEN CONDITIONED TO BELIEVE THAT WE CANNOT POSSIBLY HAVE EVERYTHING WE DESIRE, AND THAT AT LEAST ONE AREA OF OUR LIFE SHOULD BE ON FIRE AT ANY GIVEN TIME.

I call bullshit

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT YOU HAVE YOUR VERY OWN UNIQUE SPARK, AND THAT SPARK HOLDS THE KEY TO EVERYTHING YOU’VE EVER HAD THE AUDACITY TO DREAM IS POSSIBLE?


WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT BY INVESTING IN YOUR OWN DECONDITIONING, YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE THE WORLD AT LARGE?

Start your journey to self-discovery
