The recurring theme for 2016 has been “love yourself”. It’s two very simple words and yet the majority of us lack the skill-set needed to complete the task. LOVE YOURSELF.  Love is not only a noun. LOVE IS A VERB. IT IS AN ACTION. As a verb it can be defined as: like very much; find pleasure in.  That the task before us. We need to learn and perpetuate the action of liking ourselves and finding pleasure in our own company. It is by far the most powerful thing we can ever do for our souls.  It is by far the kindness action we can take to heal. Yet, life hardens us to the point that we forget this simple task. This year, put it on your to-do-list, create the habit, indulge… #LOVEYOSELF.

Dark Girls: the documentary

I processed so much from this documentary.  Not only was it well done,  it covered the pathology from colonization… Eloquently.  As a dark girl,  I never learned of colorism until I hit high school.  Colorism was tied into class is.  It was overwhelming.  Yet I had a great sense of self. 

… And that was a common theme… Sense of self.  Then it became apparent that this pathology of colorism continues  or terminates with our parents.

When you are loved,  when you are adored when your parents instill a giant sense of self,  you have an armour of your soul and such ignorance cannot penetrate that great love of self. 

The proliferation of self denigration won’t stop,  society,  institutionalize racism,  privilege,  ignorance and denial will keep the “color wheel” turning. 

However with great parenting and authentic love,  there will be a generation of women will not buy into the cancer of colorism.

The healing element of water.

It is wonderful. Water. I am actually blogging from the beach. Being here has made me feel whole and alive. Maybe because I am a Pisces… Or maybe I just need to be healed. I am here at the sea and I feel overcome with hope and happiness. It has also made me realize I have been missing out on living … I have been existing in a large vacuum for too long. There is a great element of God and spirituality in the water… And I welcome the chance to be renewed.

And what I made next…..

Today seemed excruciating. The world seemed to have spun lowly on it’s axis. I shutter.

..then cue the daughter.

I was sitting drink tea in the library, she comes in and suggests we use coasters. Clever girl.

Then she goes through every piece of artwork she made for me in the past year.

Each piece she made, she made with love and it was like magic having her go through each piece….

It was like music to my ears to hear…and what I made next…
