Find the song of your life.
As they say if someone really cares they find ways and not excuses . But who said that only others have to care ? How I read this statement is ,if you care about yourself you will make time for your health ,your professional goals, your relationships ,your hobbies and everything in the world. It's easy to sit and make a log of how people treated you or how they don't care about you , How about making a log of how we treat ourselves ? How we neglected our own needs, our own aspirations ,our own freedom of decisions.
I recently read a quote " Talk to yourself like you talk to others or you want others to talk to you" .For a change stop criticising your own self in your mind just because you are being judged by others. Start treating yourself with love and patience like you do to others. Learn to forgive yourself and move on, not because you did a mistake . Because you scolded yourself for others mistake ,because you blamed yourself for things that didn't go as planned,because you didn't appreciate yourself enough for your achievements.Be your own friend and guide before you fix outside situation.
I am a seeker ,a learner and an explorer. Each day or each situation I see as an opportunity to learn and excel. One of the biggest learnings in last 1 month of my serious injury and being bed ridden "Find that one thing that will keep you going even if you don't have anything left in life" . Even if there is no relationship ,no money ,no support ,no luxury ... In short if you loose everything ,what will be that one thing that will keep you going ? Find that reason/ thing ...Find your Song in life 😊

Since everyone is asking: (and by everyone I mean like 2 people but teaching moment😛) #Womanism is a social theory based on the history and everyday experiences of black women.
Womanist theory, while diverse, holds at its core that both femininity and culture are equally important to the woman's existence. In this conception one's femininity cannot be stripped from the culture within which it exists. At first glance, this seems similar to the thought process of third wave feminism, which embraced the concept of intersectionality. The difference lies in the valuation placed on intersectionality within the theoretical frameworks

Let's talk about BOUNDARIES y'all. About saying YES to ourselves, our truth, our worth so we can say NO to all else.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What would it feel like to protect your energy at all costs? What would it look like to say NO to all those who do not honour, align, appreciate and remunerate your inherent value.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I especially wanna share this with my fellow Black womxn, as this is a month where whites and non-Black POC like to jump all over the performative activism train in the name of Black history. We ain't here for that shit. If brands, businesses, accounts, humans aren't showing the fuck up for Black history ALL year long, it don't mean shit come February.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let us remember our strength. Let us forego having our Black bodies used + abused in order for white supremacist heteropatriarchy to make a buck. As my sis @liananaima reminded us, exposure don't pay our bills. Especially when big business has plenty of money to give (and make off of) us.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You don't need to prove a damn thing. You don't need to justify your NO. You don't need to educate or go high. You need to do and protect you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Protect your goddamn energy my bbs. If you won't, ain't nobody else gonna. We need you whole, happy + healthy...it's part of our resistance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you're seeking more support peep my Spiritual Activism 102 webinar for POC/Mixed Folx and our healing. Scholarship spots for Black + Indigenous womxn are available, just hit up support @rachelricketts.com to request one (no DMs). xo R⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

oof the iGnorance. can’t wait for the next election (and can’t wait to become a politician and replace these kinds of people)
screenshot from abc news. it reads “prime minister scott morrison [of australia] has slapped down a coalition backbencher who used the word “chinaman”, following a backlash from the chinese-australian community.
* lnp senator barry o’sullivan used the phrase “chinaman” on tuesday
* the comment prompted widespread backlash and prompted a statement from the prime minister on chinese social media
* agriculture minister david littleproud has been accused of using another slur [“off reservation”] in his criticism of the comment”

Throughout 2019, we're sharing messages literally from the Universe. If they do not resonate with you, it's okay. Take whichever one relates most with you and leave the rest for others. These are general messages not necessarily meant for everyone. On this 52nd day of 2019, the message is about focusing on empress energy. Women are autonomous and independent beings raw naturally. That's fact. With this holistic and biological understanding, you have every permission to free yourself from the lies and myths of patriarchy and hierarchy. Worship the female Gods. Hold faith in the feminine. Consider every element feminine. The Universe is just like the future and that's female. Live on your own truth of divinity. Make your own rules. Write your own scriptures to follow. Remove the worldly stigmas from your sexuality. The only alignment and relationship that you should be worried about is the one with reality and self. There is no negative connotation in being female when you don't live for all things "men." Know thyself first and foremost independent and autonomous from masculinity. No woman is under any obligation to be dependent on men in any form. Thus, be free. Remove the shackles. Be one with the King, God, Empress, & Pharaoh within. Once you embody the she that is within you, it is at that point that you will really and truly know happiness and peace. Go forth and slay with these words in mind, Pharaoh Sistahs. Namaste. -- Repost From: @healingenergytools ✔👠👑🔥🌏💯 #women #womenofcolor #kings #gods #feminism #womanism #egalitarianism #progressivism #liberalism #globalmindedness #multiculturalism #multilingual #indigenous #black #latina #asian #femaleempowerment #inspiration #motivation #kingminded #kinglytruths #kingnotes #slaynotes #reminder #dailygems #dailywisdom #divinefeminine #psu #pharoahsistahuniverse

I graduated from college 4 years, 9 months ago, and I’ve just physically received my diploma. I still do not have an industry job and I’m still trying so hard to land one. The sentimental value and significance of this piece of paper died a long time ago when I had to turn down jobs due to having a balance on my school account. The school wouldn’t release my transcripts even though I was on a payment plan. I didn’t have any guidance or direction back then, so I wasn’t aware of ways that you can pay to obtain that information and show proof of graduating. This piece of paper doesn’t define me at all nor does it show the depth of my intelligence. I’m trying to be a part of an industry that gives jobs to cousins twice removed fresh out of high school. When I apply to positions, get the interview and told I’m not qualified enough it really makes me question if I had wasted my time. My resume is stacked. Okay? And yet, for some reason it’s still not enough. I applaud those that have the job of their dreams and are creating freely, but there is a huge percentage of us who did everything by the book and aren’t recognized. We are resulted to having jobs we don’t even want to make ends meet, to pay the rent, to fucking live. I had an interview this morning for a part time retail position and as I sat there answering the interviewers questions, I kept saying in my head that I don’t even want this shit. It’s sad; it’s disheartening and yet it’s my reality. I love education, but this society isn’t making it worthwhile, at least not in the journalism field. So as I continue to create my own lane, please understand exactly why I’m doing this. Writing isn’t a hobby, it’s my passion and what I want to do for the rest of my life. I deserve to be the Creative I am destined to be, and so do a lot of other Creatives. As always, click the link in my bio to read past pieces and share them with whoever you please. #StayBlessed #LetsRelate #RakiyaG

When doing decolonizing work... one of the biggest hurdles I’ve witnesses people struggle with, is the lack of empathy and grace in the way we treat each other. -
Too often we are quick to judge and clap back at other members of the Diaspora because the way they choose to present their blackness is foreign to us.
We need to work at being cognizant of the historical contexts that shaped blackness across the diaspora. Understand all shifts and how the black experience gets altered based on oppressor, location, and cultural events. -
We need to do better at creating safe spaces for black people from all cultural backgrounds and experiences to communicate and rebuild the lost bridges across the Diaspora. -

I don’t hate #feminism , but I prefer #womanism because it takes into account the role that #racism , #ablism , #homophobia #transphobia and #class play regarding the progress of all women. Unlike a healthy, white, cis-gendered Heterosexual middle class woman- the rest of us are all dealing with many intersectional aspects of our identities. Fortunately for some the closer they are to the described personnel the less battles they have to fight. So if you find yourself going down a privilege checklist before your next women’s rally or pre-boycott meeting, remember to let other women in the room know that they absolutely have a right to be fucking angry. We can be productive AND pissed the fuck off. We do not have to be in a meditative mellow to get shit done. Periodt.
