Two days away from XXVI birthday (Libra 10/2) and I found myself looking at what time has done to my face and body. I have an overbite and my brows never grew in full enough for my standards. I have been working on getting all of my abs to show but so far I only see two. I then came to the realization that If we are to look into our mirrors and see only what it is that we hate, then what happens to the aspects that we love? Do they disappear? Today say “fuck it” choose to love ALL of you. You are magic!

Connect to nature in such a way that you can feel the sun and moon before they rise and feel the moisture in the air prior to the traditional signs of rain. Get back into a connection with your spirit and reunite with the Universe.

My sister, basking in her big chop glow. It looks good on her. I know the relaxer manufacturers are loosing patience with this natural hair “trend”.

My Baby Sis, up until today would not get caught dead without a wig a weave, or what have you. Today I big chopped her hair added a little color arched her brows and had a talk with her about self image. She always defined herself based on standards of beauty that was forced fed to her through a society that rarely celebrates REAL anything. Most images we see of any woman these days are highly edited erasing all imperfections instead of celebrating them. Our family elders still believe that our 4C hair is a curse and an abomination. I am a lover of all people but I must recognize my beauty in a world that tells me that I am only considered to be beautiful when “____”. Please applaud my sister for recognizing that she IS enough, and worthy of love, admiration, and respect.

For so long I believed that being me would get me nowhere. I was always who I needed to be; just to fit in and to appease. I then realized that living that way
left my soul malnourished. 

Our soul urge reflects that of our truest self. The moment you elect to break the mold and reunite with the Divine self, is the moment your spirit transcends. #Samadhi
