If narcissism is classed as a psychosis, then racism should be as well because this disease causes so many individuals to be in a state of delusion. Beatus Manifestationes,Nomadic Mind Wanderer🦋🦉

We know what is best for us. Why are allowing outsiders to tell us how to express ourselves, learn, speak, dress, etc? Let's reclaim that power to be our truest self for we are everything great under the sun! Beatus Manifestationes,Nomadic Mind Wanderer🦋🦉

We need to call others out when they have done us wrong. It doesn't have to be done in a boisterous way; however, when it's done, the power that is accompanied with these words should change their lives forever. We need to let others know it's not okay to disregard our existence to fulfil their … Continue reading #MelanatedMagicSeries #Day12

It's all about the swag! No matter what we do, we always add a little (or a lot of) sauce to the mix. From the way, we style our hair, speak or dress, there is always a level of regality. Beatus Manifestationes,Nomadic Mind Wanderer

All this hair, in the air! Our Hair, in all its amazingness, goes against gravity. It is diverse  in nature and such can be adapted to suit a number of styles. Love the curliness cause your hair represents strength in unity (that's why it's it's hard to detangle at times).

Black don't Crack Ambassadors (#BDCA): Our melanated tribe continues to defy the effects of ageing. I mean; look at Miss Cicely Tyson, our reigning queen of #BDCA, and all the other amazing melanated humans who radiate the world with their beauty. This amazing trait is due to having long telomeres.

Consistency to a Fault

Last year it finally stuck that consistency brought forth a successful outcome. I accomplished so much and started some of my longstanding goals. It is such a wonderful feeling knowing that I am not broken, just lazy. One day during my meditations, I realised that I have always been consistent; however, it was towards my … Continue reading Consistency to a Fault

The Year of Mass Holistic Expansion

It's a new year, and I usually like to have a theme to keep me focused as possible. Having a theme works for me because I like structure and organisation. Even though life laughs in my face, and I get some exciting twists having this mantra does help. At the end of the year, I … Continue reading The Year of Mass Holistic Expansion

So Long, Farewell (Bisous, Bisous)!

Dear 2019, Letting go used to be so hard for me because I was petrified of what was coming my way. Taking the time to figure that out helped me to embrace all the unexpected encounters wholeheartedly. I'm no longer scared to let you go; I'm open to the new possibilities that will present itself … Continue reading So Long, Farewell (Bisous, Bisous)!

Just A Reminder…

No matter how crazy things get in your life, it will always get better. No matter how many no's you receive, the yes you deserved will come into your peripheral. No matter if you are sad and frustrated, better days will be around the corner. You have to be mindful that life consists of victories … Continue reading Just A Reminder…

The Fear of Wanting More…

May it be a new experience, new love, or job; you always find yourself having butterflies in your stomach mixed in with some anxiety and nervousness. These are all normal feelings for you to experience when trying something different. What's not acceptable is when the fear becomes too much, and you get scared. Your mind … Continue reading The Fear of Wanting More…

The Value of Synchronicity..

We encounter so many signs and we ignore them or label it as 'deja vu'. Have you ever thought about the significance of these occurrences? These signs/symbols come into our lives to direct us on to our intended path. We become so distracted by all the glamour of this world that we forget our link … Continue reading The Value of Synchronicity..

Purpose Achieved or Purpose Unfilled…

Recently I have been drawn to writing stuff, hence the birth of the blog; I always got this nagging sensation to write words down. If I didn't do it, I just saw words replay in my mind until I wrote it down. The night before I started writing about this topic, I recited the words … Continue reading Purpose Achieved or Purpose Unfilled…

Cleanliness is close to Godliness…(pt2)

Being aware that there are burdens in your life is one thing, but actively trying to get rid of those burdens is another thing. No one is expected to get rid of all their problems overnight, but working on a challenge each night does add up. I started following blogs that addressed the issue of … Continue reading Cleanliness is close to Godliness…(pt2)

Cleanliness is close to Godliness…(pt 1)

Growing up, I always heard the saying cleanliness is close to Godliness. I always thought that was my mother's way of getting me and my siblings to clean the house and yard every day. Keeping the place so clean that all will be right in the universe. As I grew older, I realised I should … Continue reading Cleanliness is close to Godliness…(pt 1)

When you finally found the voice you were looking for…

I have a voice and it works well, quite well actually.  I have heard people say you have a nice voice and you should speak more...  I never thought I did and the words which I uttered bore no significance because it was connected to my brain.  A brain which stored such important memories.  Produced … Continue reading When you finally found the voice you were looking for…

Like Nike (Just Do it!)…

Setting goals makes you super organised, but what about accomplishing them? Believe it or not, growing up, I was THE MOST reserved person ever. I was, indeed, my father's daughter. I would sit alone, lost in my thoughts for hours because I thought my opinions were best kept to myself. I became more withdrawn as … Continue reading Like Nike (Just Do it!)…

THE BEGINNING IS A GOOD PLACE TO START…

It's said the beginning is always a good place to start. But which beginning should I start at though, which version of myself should I thoroughly go into? In this instance, I think I will start with my passion for writing. Growing up, my dad always gave me old yearly planners; I never knew why, … Continue reading THE BEGINNING IS A GOOD PLACE TO START…

Always allow the possibility for growth…

... and never give into the voice that says you are not good enough... Take as much time as you need to reinvent/relaunch yourself. Apps are constantly updating to give you the best product, why can't you give yourself the opportunity to constantly improve too? Thank you for believing in me. I hope you enjoy … Continue reading Always allow the possibility for growth…
