Land of Opportunity

America does not value melanin, it values money πŸ’°

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 😊)

Let’s make this clear

Ladies and Gentlemen, if you decide to put your hands on someone, you CANNOT be mad at them for retaliation.

I’m just saying.

What kind of incentives are these?!? πŸ‘€

Call it what you will

You call is reckless and impulsive, I call is fun and spontaneous πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

I appreciate those who handle me gently πŸ˜Œ

That is all.

Today my therapist told me…

Nobody owes me anything.

She a real one πŸ™πŸ½

I’m convinced. πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

The internet is a just a place people can be their judgmental, arrogant, rude, inappropriate selves; without taking accountability for those actions.

A message

If you have hate in your heart at any capacity for another human being, I will say this to you, We all bleed the same red blood 🩸

Blah

I seldom feel inspired

Will it come out tomorrow?!

Days without seeing the Sun, make me so depressed. Among other things.

πŸ€”πŸ’­πŸ™„

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.

I’m just sayin πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

I don’t even know how I feel anymore

So please don’t ask

πŸ—£ Make Good Choices

Please.

I realize more & more every day;

I don’t fit in anywhere. I’m not sure how I feel about that. Sometimes it’s high and sometimes it’s real low.
