Can I vent? As a mother of 4 black teenagers, 3 boys and 1 girl, I’m afraid. I’m afraid that when they walk out the door, they may not return! I pray for them every night and every morning before they go to school because they aren’t safe there either! I make sure to have “the talk” before they leave with friends. What talk you ask? The talk about what to do and not do if approached by a police officer because whether they comply or not, they could be killed. I’m sick and tired of having to have that talk! Our children are being hunted and slaughtered like animals by those who were sworn to protect them! Stay vigilant folks!

Without filter but I used @fentybeauty trophy wife highlighter with my @morphebrushes#35mpalette as eyeshadows. I was playing with fall burnt oranges, reds, browns, deep plums, and golds. Love it and so did my clients. Drew eyebrows on a older lady who had know. Full face on one lady and all happy. Blessed, grateful, thankful, hopeful. To God be the FREEDOM. #blackgirlmagic#makeup#clinique
Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it's all over.
A mere friend will agree with you, but a real friend will argue.🌺👩🏻👩🏽♥️✨🙏🏾🌓🌗🌕🌔✨.
Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. ♥️👱🏾♀️✨
Body positive.👱🏾♀️🔥 If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.
The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.
If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign- body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on- alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction. ♥️
I started this healthy journey January 2017. 🙌 I didn't know if I would stay consistent, but I did (Thank God)! Almost 1 year in, I can't believe I'm healthier than I have ever been in all my younger years. #noregrets 💯
