I created this set using Polyvore. Check out more of my designs here!
There’s truly an art to allowing things to be: whether this means allowing yourself to be, or allowing things in your life to be. One has to be before one can become. In my voyage I’ve learned everything uncomfortable isn’t an emergency. Some things have a natural way of orbiting in and out of my mini-universe. This doesn’t mean desiring change, but doing nothing; it does mean taking the time to decide what I can and should change immediately, then eventually, and what needs to be left to God and fate. (And not disordering this out of hurt, fear and pride.) It takes a lot to accept that most things are ushered in or out naturally. Personal growth is very sacred, strategic, and its timing is very uncertain. The only thing I see that is certain is the beauty of renewal, and my commitment to being present in it. I’m reflecting on the occasions where I tried to skip steps, only to accomplish nothing, and then I would wonder why I was actually in the same place I started. I’m becoming more conscious of the truth that life isn’t avoidable. The key is being patient with my personal evolution. Well, just thought I’d share. 🙂

My love for brown girls, sisterhood, laboring collectively to produce beauty in everything we touch, and this one huge motherland called earth, inspired me to create this graphic piece.
Sometimes we engage in futile battles, while the worthy of fighting against, and for are left in the hands of defeat. Averting our energies to spiritual, mental, and physical strength and wellness is the only real war. SELF. I can conquer, outsmart, and even attempt to control my sister, to a degree, but the real mastery is self-control, and self-evolution.
One can inspire change, and even pray for change, but the queenliest act of all is BECOMING the change.
I’m inspired to share this because I’m challenging ME to focus. The worst that can happen is I’ll relinquish more of my shackles- and so, sometimes feel doubtful. The best that can happen is I’ll experience deep fulfillment, healing, and receive the humbling privilege of passing these on to my sisters and daughter(s). We are in desperate need of healing the feminine spirit. If we get audacity, and are mindful each day to encourage ourselves, and one-another about what’s truly important, I believe both individually, and collectively we’ll make revolutionary change as women.
