"Ain't no rookie but I be feelin' like a kid"
Can't sacrifice my potential to be a part of a collective; Ideally, I wanna feel challenged and\or supported.
I feel full and lucky to be a part of a collective that continuously inspires me to do better🌺

A stretch 🐌 Personally, I ask myself a broad question each week to keep focused ➖ last week, it was “Who’s going w/ me” 🧐 This week, it’s “What is my soul missing” ... What questions have ya’ll been marinating on lately Money woes, relationships, feeling stuck 〰️ Image via @glossier #moveouttheway #attitude
@Spectral_Serenity is about engaging the full spectrum of our senses for healing, self awareness and resilience. 🌸

🌱 Where Nature is Beauty
I know you may believe that holding on to your anger is harming someone else but it’s not. Find a way to forgive them for not knowing and doing better at the time. Forgive them for hurting you. Forgive them for harming you. Forgive them for abandoning you. Let it go. Because if you don’t, you’re drinking that emotional poison. Not them.

The kind of Black Joy and GLOW you see after you just finished doing your album release concert, in the capitol of your home state (Sacramento, CA), with some fellow Cali natives who you met in some of the Blackest spaces (Hampton University and D.C. respectively), during the developing stages of Light that has now manifested into a full length album, that tells our Black stories to the tone and rhythm of Black Music, during Black History Month! Oh, and the extra shine is because the next generation is right behind us, following and learning the ways of The Light! And as you can see, they aint afraid to use it! 😉🕯 #SOLDEVELOPMENT #THESOLOFBLACKFOLK #OFADAWNOFFREEDOM #DEBUTALBUM #FEB22 #222 #SHAREBLACKSTORIES #NEXTGENERATION #THELIGHT #LOVE #FREEDOM #BLACKJOY #SMILE 📸cred: @valkai1935 ❤✊🏾💯🕯

Zelma had been sitting for years so I was very nervous to take the trip down the coast. I’ve only driven hatchbacks up and down the coast. A large suburban is the biggest vehicle I’ve driven.
So I had a bit of anxiety.
Zelma drove sooo smooth. 4 hours! I also gain confidence driving a bigger vehicle,by the end of it I was backing that thang up!! Got a lot of interesting stares. A positive interaction with a cop which is an anomaly for us colored folks, so I feel blessed. Some indulgent foods. A just about full moon. And we made it home!! ☀️🌈❤️🥂🌻 Now let the fun begin!Hit the link in the bio to support.

So so so.....
So this is what it feels like to match wits
With someone at your level! What the hell is the catch It’s
The feeling of freedom, of seein’ the light
It’s Ben Franklin with a key and a kite! You see it, right
The conversation lasted two minutes, maybe three minutes...
Our first conversation lasted almost 2 hours and included the above lyric. 2 and a half years later I'm still in awe of the gifts you shared with us. I cherish our growing friendship. #happytrails @michaelluwoye. I'm shocked I didnt cry the entire day Saturday. To the next chapter!
