peace, peace, peace...

  • Sometimes I pause and can sense another facet of my grasped womanhood. It's been happening more and more lately. I'm grateful for that.
  • I am another beautiful member of the natural hair movement. 11 months and counting since my last relaxer. :)
  • I'm taking a long pause concerning my book. I made the mistake of telling friends it was something I was currently working on...thus, it unknowingly became an expectation that I'm consistantly asked about. That was my mistake.
  • Summer sleep is joyous.
  • I have finally banned BET....becoming "one of those people".
  • I don't care how short Mos Def's tracks are..."The Ecstatic" is still in heavy rotation.
  • I've spent the past 5 days talking to my best [guy] friend for at least 4 hours/day. It takes me back to the Summer of '07 when I fell in love with him. Be still my heart.
  • I've never laughed so much with my parents before....the older I get, the closer I get to them.
  • This summer has allowed me to take a journey back into my past. I've conversed and confronted exes/crushes/temporarys. I'm glad I didn't burn those bridges.
  • God is leading me by the hand in this stage of my life. Causing me to breathe deeply and make each step purposeful and emphatic. It is so evident that I'm in transition.
  • I'm settling into my adult body. My metabolism isn't what it used to be, but my curved shape, straight back, skin, and eyes are aligned with that of a woman. I smile into my mirror more these days. Definitely.
  • I am so ready for graduate school. I hope my professors are ready for me.

  1. I think it is a beautiful thing that you smile into the mirror. Alot of women dont actually love themselves.

    i am over BET also after the award show.

    thumbs up for natural hair
