Look Alive. Look Alive! πŸ‘€

Ok, soooo…. I’m aight. The human experience is a complicated one. Components of mental, emotional, spiritual and physical qualities, that vary. After my last post I had to really look within myself and figure out what I needed to do for myself, that was going to make me feel better. I also realized that I mentioned nothing about my mind in the last post. Well, let me tell you! Mentally, I am one strong mofo. I’ve seen and been through so much that, if I was not mentally strong; I would not have made it this far. I’m no expert but these are some of my thoughts when it comes to taking care of my mental and emotional health.

I am grateful for everyday. I am thankful, everyday. I am blessed with grace, glory and mercy, daily. I have moments when I feel so weighed down, like I don’t want to keep moving forward, but those are just moments that pass. And I have moments when I think nobody cares about me but that is my mind playing tricks on me. There are also moments when I am angry af and I want to fuck shit up! But, again these are just moments in my feelings. The feelings are overwhelming at times but I have to remind myself in those moments that I am strong and can overcome any obstacle. When I sit back and think about my life, I am thankful I had to go through things, so that I could sift out what I did and didn’t want for my and my peace. All that, made me who I am today. It made me a better version of my old self. I am proud of who I am.

Mental health is just like any other health, I want to preserve and nurture it. There were times where I needed outside help; that’s where therapy/counseling came in! I’ve gone to professionals at different points in my life when I just felt mentally overwhelmed, exhausted and lost. I’ve been able to use the tools and techniques I have learned through counseling, to help me deal with life. It’s something I recommend to people I love, it can be truly life changing.

Anyway, we are all going through a lot right now. But despite your circumstances, whoever you are, wherever you are; you are important. You are strong. You are unique. You are loved. Don’t let anyone or your own mind convince you otherwise. Live your life and do what makes you happy. Oh! and try not to hurt others in the process. Compassion and empathy are also key. I don’t want to cause intentional or malicious. I want to feel joy and spread it. Soul food for real.

Be in the moment. Life is way too short and I want to enjoy it as much as I can.

(To sum it up: Players gon play and the haters gon hate. Also, try not to be an asshole! Thank you 😊)

I appreciate those who handle me gently πŸ˜Œ

That is all.

Companies are really capitalizing on Black History Month in 2021.

It better be genuine. Put that money into the Black Communities you are claiming to support. That is all.

Life

Yesterday was my 35th birthday. I had a blast and also realized that I don’t “feel” 35. I feel like a green newbie to this thing called life. But that’s the feeling I LOVE! I love exploring and discovering new things; I enjoy being out of my comfort zone because it pushes me think outside of the box. For me, life has been one amazing surprise after another, and for that I am so grateful. What I have learned is not to question my circumstances, always do my best and always be grateful. Thank you πŸ™πŸ½

It’s 2018

To You,

Happy New Year! May 2018 be your healthiest, happiest, most prosperous year yet! Love you xoxoxox

From,

Me 😘

Looks like they’re made for each other

I came across these two pieces of art randomly within the last two weeks. I first encountered the drawing of the man, outside of a train station exit. I thought he was beautiful (imperfections & all,) and snapped a picture. A few days later, I came across a piece by Don Van Vliet (the artist formerly known as Captain Beefheart.) 

They connected in my mind. A man and a woman, smeared in each other’s direction. They just seemed like they were made for each other πŸ™ŒπŸ½. That is all.
