Weekly Check-In #2
Weekly Check-Ins are back! Well, currently due to posting every other day they won’t be weekly for the time being but once I’m posting everyday they will be.
For those who don’t know, weekly check-ins are my way of giving people a space to talk about what they’re doing, what they need help with, or simply to talk about something they want to get off their chest or announce in a safe, welcoming, and open environment.
The theme for this week’s WCI is “Being Behind”. It felt like a good theme to jump back into these since I was behind with a lot of things in my life and thusly has to push when I came back to I am We Creations.
Do you have any tips or motivation for someone who’s feeling behind with what they’re doing Or do you just want to share a time you feel behind on things and how you did (or didn’t) get caught up Maybe you need a bit of motivation yourself - if so, don’t be afraid to ask! I’m happy to check in with folks who want someone to bug them until they get their stuff together and done 😆
I’ll be sharing how I got behind and how I’m getting more and more caught up everyday in the comments. See ya there! 😉 🔆 〰️

“Children are the most precious treasure a community can possess, for in them are the promise and guarantee of the future. They bear the seeds of the character of future society which is largely shaped by what the adults constituting the community do or fail to do with respect to children. They are a trust no community can neglect with impunity.”
(The Universal House of Justice)

Hey, friends! As many of you know, we sold our home and bought a new home last year. And a BIG shout out is needed!! As I’m sitting here a little under the weather, I’m scrolling through the pictures of our home and pictures from the last 5 months and have so much gratitude for our home and our realtor Drew. 🙏
If YOU are thinking of moving in 2020 - we highly recommend our Realtor, Drew Tomasik! We had an AWESOME experience!! We had been planning a big upgrade for a space that could host a lot of people and had some very specific wants and needs and he walked us through every step of figuring out what we really wanted and finding an amazing neighborhood we didn’t even remember was tucked away in Carmel!
I’m so grateful we had a realtor by our side that is best in class at what he does and knows his stuff. For all my local peeps- connect with Drew if you plan to buy or sell and want expert advise!
#SymbolsforSustainability: This Adinkra symbol 1symbolizes togetherness and unity. The bunch refers to unity because separate pods each with a number of seeds have been brought together. This symbol reminds us of the philosophy of unity in diversity— something that the mainstream sustainability movement is lacking. This will only be resolved when we share our own indivual versions of sustainability with the collective. The #BeseSaka Adinkra cultural symbol encourages the engagement in activities that brings about abundance. It educates us that to combat the environmental crisis in society, there is the need for all societal members to join forces in conserving & restoring our environments. Also, this symbol represents the potential that environmentall conscious activities have to bring together unique members of society as a collective. That’s what #SustainTheCulture is all about. ✨ Finally, each person should remember that participating in sustainability holds substantial benefits for them individually. In part, because sustainable management of the environment and its resources have substantial economic gains to offer a society.
I want to take a moment to recognize the amazing organization that is, @austindiaperbank . They make sure that children and the elderly all have access to these important healthcare items. I volunteered packaging diapers this week, and they are phenomenal. Thank you to my friend @chrisnapierk who told me about them💛 Supporting organizations like this is an easy way to give-back and make change. I love supporting the most vulnerable in our community. Thank you again for all you do @austindiaperbank . Would anybody like to join Let me know! #giveback #communitybuilding
29 DAYS OF GRATITUDE FOR BEING BLACK!
DAY 15 - BLACK OWNED BUSINESSES
I love Black owned businesses! Particularly the ones that are opened specifically to serve Black folk in Black communities. Black owned businesses get a bad rap. But I'm not here to focus on the negative. From bomb food to beauty services to law firms to doctor's offices, Black folk are out here thriving in spite of obstacles and opening businesses where our people can get things we want and need, and be served in a way we might not be elsewhere. Integration killed so many Black owned businesses and so much community, common memory, and legacy. Gentrification is doing the same. But we can remember and rebuild. And we should.
Go out of your way to support Black owned businesses. Y'all know we set trends and do all things well! We thrive when we are given fair opportunities and we create opportunities when we aren't. Don't let negative stereotypes deter you from investing money in our people and our communities.

Double tap if you love Greece as much as we do and if you would like to visit this place 😍. #KohasAgency
The decades old door, the common bond brick wall. These details of the Lee Dime store in downtown Aberdeen usually play second fiddle to the beautiful plate glass windows on the front of the building, but they’re just as important.
Harvard Business Review found "39% of respondents feel the greatest sense of belonging when their colleagues check in with them, both personally and professionally. This was true across genders and age groups, with checking in being the most popular tactic for establishing a sense of belonging across all generations. By reaching out and acknowledging their employees on a personal level, companies and leaders can significantly enhance the employee experience by making their people feel valued and connected."
🇸🇳🇺🇸Yacine Fall, @yacinex3 , a native New Yorker whose family is from Senegal, is a junior studying Biology and African Studies at Smith College. She conducts research in two different fields — one is a biomedical engineering lab where she is creating a cancer vaccine and the other is in African Studies where she researches the Islamization of West Africa, specifically looking at the Mouride community. Yacine also participates in numerous social justice initiatives on campus as well as hurdles in Smith’s DIII track and field program.
And Yacine is the founder of the page @Whymouride, which highlights the legacy of Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba, one of the most influential black spiritual leaders in Islamic history. Through her graphics and video work, she hopes to illustrate the unapologetic nature of the Mouride community to inspire young black Muslims. She hopes to pursue additional projects in the future.
We applaud Black Muslim women like Yacine who are committed to elevating the voices and perspectives of Black Muslim individuals who have played a pivotal role in Islam. We also appreciate her commitment to creating a space for Black Muslim women in sports and in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) field and for challenging the narrative that Islam and social justice cannot coexist. #kampkhalil
