Your thoughts .Your Reality

What are you afraid of? Criticism? Losing your supporters? If living unapologetically is the outcome then so be it. I fight with myself daily of all the things I want to be doing with my life or rather be doing in that moment. In my true essence all I want to do is service the community, do yoga and be in my spirituality. But its hard to do that when you have limitations on yourself not allowing yourself to be just that. Recently I moved into a house and today is my first day really being alone with my thoughts and boy they were talking to me.

Let me honest with myself and you. Opinions really matter to me from parents to my life partner to the slightest people because I always want to seem "perfect". Im not! We all are not! Should I apologize for it? Should I apologize for my realization I'm bi- sexual? Should I be apologetic because its not what I "should be"?  Does it make me less connected to the source? As I was journalling my higher self was telling me ultimately JUST BE!! and stop holding myself captive in my mind. Live your truth people !! live!!

A Stolen Culture & The Price You Pay For It

People my dear people do you think this is flattering or culture vulture activity going on here? Nike is soon to release a black history line January 18th (thank you Saint Heron for the informational article). The line is to appreciate the melanated stars who have contributed to sports through out the years. 

Their form of appreciation is showing and selling is kente cloth sneakers and gear. If that didn't seem redundant to you let me put it in another way.The general public is to be sold  colorful sneakers with dark undertones and patterns resembling the black culture and passing it you the customer; to buy expensive gear because you are acknowledging black history.

But wait there is more..Valentino released their Spring/Summer 2016 clothing line and what does it entail?... You guessed it! More tribal wear! I'm flattered these brands are interested in the culture and things we naturally wore as people;but to sell it back to us as if it something new? I understand/appreciate the level of creativity that went into these process,but if this doesn't make people of color start their own business idk what would.

Don't feed into the hype people! Create your own or support others who sell something similar within your community. Trade your dollars with those you support and are like minded. Disclaimer:Article isn't to bash but to bring awareness of the culture we live in when it comes to trends,culture and money exchange.

A workshop for business women to get insight of how to improve their business as well get tips on business secrets. The event was bought to us by @iambrittanyalexis; a graphic designer who has worked with Karen Civil,Cupcake Mafia and many others. Event was held at Lenox Cupcakes in Atlanta this past Saturday. The event was inspiring for myself and other business women. I left with insight  and hopefulness for my entrepreneur future.

Excuses Why You Cant Achieve Your Dreams

After 2 years of being at my comfortable job I put in my resignation. Yup not cause I had a complete plan what to do next (although I had an idea) but I told myself after a certain time I'd quit and pursue my dreams. If we continue to make excuses for ourselves we will stay in the same predicament . "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone" a friend told me. Certainly it was comfortable to stay in the job but felt even worse settling.
I fell upon this video while doing research  and kinda describes how i felt about going after my dreams. Just a little inspiration to inspire you.
