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 WandereršŸ¦‹šŸ¦‰

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 WandereršŸ¦‹šŸ¦‰

Day of Creativity (Part II)

I committed myself to having a monthly "day of creativity". A day where I would disconnect all devices, be in tuned with nature and release all the words that have been forcefully oppressed. I didn't know what day I would choose; I thought about the same day each month, but that felt too predictable, and … Continue reading Day of Creativity (Part II)

#MelanatedMagicSeries #Day12

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

For us to create the magic we were destined to accomplish, we need to support every other genuinely. There are so many ways we can do support each other; from purchasing from businesses to saying uplifting words. Let's do our part to make the tribe better.

Day of Creativity (Part I)

At the beginning of the year, I made a vow that I would take the time to "go off the grid" to reset and realign focus on the things that are important to me. I heard of this idea when I went to a workshop last year. "It sparked creativity," she said, and it was … Continue reading Day of Creativity (Part I)

šŸ„³Celebrating MilestonesšŸ„³

If my blog were a baby, she would be at the point where she is more aware of her surroundings. She would try to talk, producing sounds unfamiliar to me, and mimic everything I do. We would both have that love and trust surrounded by unlimited happiness. Six months ago, I decided to be brave … Continue reading šŸ„³Celebrating MilestonesšŸ„³

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 diverseĀ  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).

My Poetry Challenge

I thought it! I said it out loud! I did it! As part of my theme this year, I wanted to push myself towards writing more poetry. I convinced my friend that we should do a writing challenge; we would alternate picking themes for the month, write at least three poems and send them as … Continue reading My Poetry Challenge

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. Telomeres are sequences found at … Continue reading #MelanatedMagicSeries #Day4

You Are What You Call Yourself

I have this friend that continually calls me a girl even though I remind them that I don't identify with that word. They didn't seem to understand the idea behind it, but I felt the need to explain my stance to prevent any further confusion. So the story goes like this: "I made a conscious … Continue reading You Are What You Call Yourself
