Hello everyone so the weekend that past was absolutely amazing I’m still on a high, a drug free high of course that’s the only high I’m interested in. The Wow Factor Brunch was such an amazing vibe just like I thought it would be, I got to meet so many amazing people for the first time. There was so much Melanin at the brunch, it felt like Black excellence and carefree black girls all mixed into batter full of educated witty Queens who like trap music and art.
So I went to watch 50 Shades Darker with two of my girlfriends,
And to say I was disappointed wouldn’t even be accurate. When the books were released and everyone was reading them, I a self proclaimed book critic and connoisseur did not read any of them. I was told it was a book about a man who finds a virgin and is obsessed with having dominatrix type of sex with her, I thought to myself I’ve read this before I don’t need to read this.
It’s hard to see the beauty in a bad day, trust me I know I’ve had many of them. This past weekend I had my entire Saturday planned out perfectly. My husband and I were going to go out of town and do some shopping, eat a lot of junk food and visit cultural sites.
Hello February, this month will be very interesting to say the least. If you live in the United States or maybe you’re on the outside watching from the sidelines. There is a lot of tension in America right now, I’m waiting to see how Donald Trump will acknowledge, if he even will acknowledge Black History Month at all.
Society is so used to putting women against each other, so quick are they to support us fighting and bashing each other for entertainment purposes. That when we came together for something good it confused too many people. I decided to go to the march at the very last minute. I did my research and decided I was definitely going to be there. In the end it was an amazing eye opening experience, going to that march will definitely be one of the biggest highlights of my 2017 experience.
Happy Hump Day everyone 2017 is off to an amazing start. I want to say a special Thank You to anyone reading this who signed up for my 17 in 2017 Book reading Challenge, Im really excited to what direction this challenge goes and seeing how much we can all grow.
How many hours a day are you spending on YOU? Not scrolling the internet, not checking emails, not talking to your friends but on you. We should consider ourselves always a work in progress, and since we are all a work in progress we should be doing things that will make us better versions of ourselves.
For a very long time I think I convinced myself that I was confident and I was not afraid. However I was far from confident, I realize that now. Most of my life has been spent being not enough, some of you might not understand what I mean by that. The glass is either half full or half empty, I was that dam glass for most of my life, I was never full and depending on who was looking at me I was either a positive or a negative.
