In the green room mirror before my book event last week, worrying about my looks (is my hair shaped right? are my legs too big to cross like this on stage?) and the event (who is in the audience? what do they want to hear?) I centered myself with my go-to prayer: ⁣
⁣
⁣
“Help me to see what You see. And help them to see You.” Isn’t that the most that we can ask for? To see ourselves through the eyes of One who isn’t focused on our hair or our weight but instead on our heart? And for others to see not just our flesh and bones, not just our own flawed presentation and natural talent but instead the love and wisdom of God that is perfect and knows just what is needed in any room? ⁣
⁣
⁣
So here’s the tip: Want to feel better about yourself AND also perform better? It’s simple. Look at your reflection & surrender it all.  #youdeservethetruth

It is finished... Glad to know I have friends who are on the same page in life and not afraid to be vulnerable and speak. @missewill this was a wonderful experience in reading. I knew some of your story through our past interactions but now I know a little more. You really helped me in reevaluating myself again at this new stage of my life

We all have our own stories and though sometimes similar, they are still our own. Dont be ashamed of your journey people. It's yours because you were made to succeed in it and help others along the way. 
Dont get mad at your past choices, just make a new decision. And be open to new a mindset.

This is a must read... Also, @missewill lied about meeting her husband in high school, they really met in pre-k 🤣🤣
EROT for life!

 #TBT A few weeks ago, talking to a room full of women creators at CBS about the power of story - and what happens when we turn over resources and platforms to the truth tellers: especially the girls, the young ones, the black and the brown ones, the powerful ones. They are the ones imagining limitless new worlds that will set us all free. One of my favorite parts of the #youdeservethetruth tour has been inspiring accomplished storytellers themselves to think differently about the role of narrative in changing lives and the world. So grateful. Thanks to @anasatroutman for inviting me to come support the next generation of storytellers with you & these giants of industry. #youdeservethetruth #shelectricity

Welcome back peeps, the club was told to produce their receipts and accounts without prior notice and if the information is correct, after it’s General Meeting. Asking for a club’s bank account is already fishy enough but now it’s the DETAILS in it that were asked. However, they aren’t sure what’s the purpose of it at the first place. It was asked by a person who holds a handsome position in the school, respected by all, or rather obliged to do so. He’s of high authority and is capable of ordering a shut-down of the club if he wishes. Why not doing the same to the school finances? Probably there’s nothing to shout about in there. Bear in mind, government schools are generally poor, but with a strong PTA like MBS, it’s a different story. Remember what was mentioned about the top guns coordinating with the PTA? Well, this was what happened and shockingly, the move was approved by the PTA. This is coordinating for the wrong reason but it is the truth. Many questions surfaced after that: What’s the purpose? What is he trying to do? What will happen to the money? Why is he holding our accounts? Who should we go to if anything happens? Where would the money go? Why? How? Unfortunately, those questions remained unanswered, but it will never be like this forever if anyone who has more information about this to come forward and talk to us. This issue is still at it’s infancy but it will be a huge leap towards the truth if more is revealed. Remember, do not be afraid! We believe in nothing but the truth and we are here to realise our motto: You Deserve The Truth. Remember, do not withhold anything, just tell us. We’ll do the storytelling for you.-MBS Holmes-You Deserve The Truth

I was such a fool in the beginning, I believed every line my husband told me. The sad part is he was so delusional I think he believed what he was telling me as well. It took 10 long, hard weeks for my husband to become completely remorseful, and cut off the other woman entirely! I actually watched videos on “how to tell if someone is lying” ...I learned the tell tale signs of his body. And of course there is your gut...who will definitely let you know all is not right. Watching the one person you trusted the most in this world lie to you, is one of the most gut wrenching feelings in the world!! **AFTER ONE TOO MANY LIES, I WAS DONE, AND I TOLD HIM THAT! AND THAT LINE IN THE SAND...WAS THE SLAP OF REALITY MY HUSBAND NEEDED TO WAKE UP** It was then like a like a switch was flipped and he woke up, and stared becoming the man I knew him to be, and we’ve been working hard on healing this marriage ever since! <<So if you are stuck in their lies, Please, Please stand up for yourself, you deserve to be treated better!!!>>. #infidelity #cheatinghusband #betrayalquotes #liarsandcheaters #standingupforyourself #infidelityhealing #betrayedandhealing #listentoyourgut #newwifelessonslearned #fightingformymarriage #marriageafterbetrayal #trustisbroken #loveyourself #youdeservethetruth

My conversation w @loriharder on her @earnyourhappy podcast is up today and this gem from #YouDeserveTheTruth is a perfect reminder as we start our week: ⁣
⁣
Our jobs are how we make money. We should give them our best and be grateful for them. But they are not the be all and end all of how we contribute to this earth. Our work - our investment of energy, sweat, and time - can be in service of things that build our life, bring us joy and meaning and impact others, regardless of what is currently paying your bills. ⁣
⁣
Freedom comes from knowing that at any given moment, your work does not have to fit inside the predetermined box that has been created to make you a good contributor to capitalism. For those whose jobs provide you with a sense of purpose and joy, congrats. You have struck the jackpot. ⁣
⁣
But for the rest of you, frustrated that all of your gifts and talents and hopes and dreams aren’t being realized in that place you go into everyday, remember: There is more to you and your value than your title. And what you truly work towards in your life (your family, your side hustle, your activism, your community, your passions) will yield rewards far beyond what any boss or system could ever understand.

Erica Williams Simon joins me to talk about the power of story and changing your life. She started her career in politics, policy and activism then took some time out and realized she also needed to talk about faith, love and money. On this episode we discuss stories that we learn growing up and how to forge new identities. We also cover how changing your story can trigger other people and how to deal with that. I can't wait for you to listen to this conversation because I literally fell in love with this woman. .

If you chose card two, this week you are going to be looking through rose tinted glasses at a relationship even though it isn't ideal. You need to stop lieing to yourself. You deserve to be treated like a queen/ king. You may be feeling overwhelmed because you want this relationship to work. It isn't worth all this effort. Don't take anybody or yourself for granted!!! #selflove #lovetarot #reversedtarot #bumpyweek #tarotforecast #youdeservethetruth #miracletarot #tarotforlife

Confession: I never used to understand celebrating Juneteenth. Like ever. To me it was incredibly sad: Two YEARS after the Emancipation Proclamation, a group of our ancestors were still living in slavery because...it took that long for their state to get around to enforcing it?!? Did they know, I wonder? Did they know that others were free and agonize over whether or not it would ever apply to them? Or were they unaware of it completely? It always made me so angry at the injustice of it all. I refused to celebrate. But then I started to realize the parallels to our own lives. How many times are we walking around in bondage, trapped, limited, unaware of our own power? Seeing others living some form of life that we think isn’t available to us? Unaware of the freedom that has already been bought and paid for? When I realized that, I became so freaking grateful for the mercy and grace that somehow, I - we - always figure it out. That something, somewhere would always make me realize my birthright, my identity as a child of God and that there was nothing holding me back from walking into my destiny. That is why I celebrate. You are free, whether or not anyone has come to tell you. Even if others are still benefiting from you not knowing. And everytime someone gets the truth and the revelation - even just one person - things change. So Happy Juneteenth y’all. We are free indeed. #youdeservethetruth #juneteenth

There is a war raging all around us; a fight for our attention; a fight for the dominant stories that will shape our lives and define this moment in history. And we have the power to be a casualty or to win the war. But it requires intention. 
If we are not careful, we can fall victim to the countless narratives that others have written about what our lives should look like, what we should believe and desire, and how we should behave; The stories that governments and tech companies and unholy religious leaders and bad bosses and small minded, visionless, broken people desperately want you to believe. 
You believing their stories is how they survive, even as it sucks the life out of you.

But thank God that every day is a new opportunity to act out a different story; to reject their narratives and create a life and behaviors that expand you, lift you up, open your heart and place you firmly in the path of your purpose and joy. Do that today. 
Remind yourself of who you are and what you deserve. Tell yourself the story that you are bigger and better and freer than everything that has tried to limit you. Because that is the truth. That is your true story. That is how we win. #youdeservethetruth

I've always loved books. They could transport you into fantastic worlds and experience things impossible - or allow you to see through another's eyes via words, photographs or illustrations. Today, I am honored to facilitate telling people's stories through photographs. It is a gift I am most grateful for. As Erica said, "when you take the risk to open your heart and make a thing, the world will open its heart to you" ⠀

 #TBT I’m still smiling about this night. Last week I was hosted in San Francisco by my friend clemantine1 When she heard I was coming there to do a public event, she said “Say no more. I’m hosting something for you too.” ⁣⁣⁣⠀
⁣⁣⁣⠀
She and her team curated a book dinner that was an experience to remember. Together, they turned a majestic private home into a garden of love, food, flowers, new faces and story. The idea that my work was the catalyst for this gathering still blows my mind and I am so grateful for Clemantine, Ali, Leslie for hosting and all of the people who joined the conversation. ⁣⁣⁣⠀

I’m not sharing this simply because the pictures are pretty (although, they are, thanks to @juliazavephotography ) but as a reminder that when you take the risk to open your heart and make a thing, the world will open its heart to you. #youdeservethetruth ( #📷 @missewill )

This morning I was on @thetodayshow sharing my story and spreading the message that we don’t have to be victims to the societal narratives that surround us; that we can create new lives and a new world by daring to question what we believe.

Me to an author friend: Book signings are like altar calls. ⁣⁣
⁣
Him: No. YOUR book signings are like altar calls.⁣ ⁣⁣
Me: Lol True. ⁣⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⁣
It’s been 2 weeks since #YouDeserveTheTruth dropped, 6 events in 4 cities and we’re still going (this Thursday in Chicago - RSVP at youdeservethetruthbook.com/events). ⁣⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣⁣
The stories that people have shared, the aha moments that we have together, the questions that don’t always have simple answers but carry power just by being spoken…all have made these events spiritual experiences masquerading as book signings. It’s my calling to bring us all together to talk about truth and share wisdom. Thanks for joining me. ⁣⁣

We have a lot of beautiful things planned for the rest of the year so if you want to bring me to your city, hit me up. Can’t wait to see you!

Can I just take a moment to celebrate my #wcw. @missewill is not only my friend, but mentor. We both moved to LA from the DMV. Met through our church small group and have been kicking it since. Even though we have become super busy, we make sure to support and check in with each other. ⠀
⠀
I’m extremely proud of her book 📖 #youdeservethetruth. I know what went into writing ✍🏾 it. Many people don’t know that usually when you start writing for a higher purpose, life deals you with so many lessons. Usually, it’s because you are being used as a vessel. Most times it’s not for you, but to help others breakthrough. ⠀
⠀
Anyway, go get the book right now!! Where all books are sold. I bought my hard copy and had it signed 🥰. I’ll be listening to the audible version, because that’s how I consume books 📚 these days.

This evil man who rose to power in the 1930s was responsible for the greatest ferocities in human history. He ordered systematic racially based murder of about 11 million of people of which 6 million were Jews, while his foreign policy provoked World War II which claimed 50 to 70 million lives. Hitler committed suicide on April 30, 1945, to avoid being captured by the Soviet Red Army that was advancing in Berlin. This short but yet impactful introduction of Adolf Hitler was already good enough to summarise whatever he had been doing as he clinged onto power......dictatorship. Dictatorship is simply defined as absolute authority in any sphere, and the context of it shouldn’t be just limited to the running of a country, but also in our daily lives, and the people around us where there might be these “little dictators “ around whose orders should be followed or else it’s the end of the road for you and him. They would execute what they want despite having assistants, advisors, and deputies around who might offer a better choice or solution for him in an organisation. Unfortunately, these “little dictators” seem to be making their mark right here in MBS, but they do not kill or massacre people like what Hitler did. However, they do pick up traits of being a dictator such as the given example above: sits at the top of an organisation and whatever he says must be obeyed and followed accordingly. Assistants and deputies are there just for name sake, but are useless in his eyes. As far as we know, there’s more than one of these student organisations in MBS which adopt these “dictator-style” approach in running the organisation despite having strong opposition from its very own members, not to mention watchdogs like us who are extremely concerned about this issue. However, for some reason, our attempts to extract more information from sources familiar with these organisations proved futile, and that’s why we are continuing our efforts to dissect whatever new leads we might have, only if YOU cooperate. Do PM us if you are one of them. Remember, you can make a difference. Do not be afraid.  #mbsholmes #youdeservethetruth #fairnsquare #fairness4all #speakup

Social media, cameras and live streams will never truly capture moments and feelings. Tonight was one of those nights. I have had the pleasure of having worked with @missewill and having gotten to know her bit by bit over the years and have always been in awe of her talent. However, tonight I was merely blown away. Seeing Erica openly share all of who she is, was and is becoming every day with true vulnerability, courage and bravery was beyond moving and inspiring. Thank you for being you love. Thank you for reminding me and all of us to examine all of our reasoning and stories, wants and desires and seeing if they “actually work for us”. I didn’t know what to expect, but I am even more so excited because your book and voice take us waaaaay beyond “self help cliches” and into the real truth and authenticity. Peoples, do yourself a solid: buy this book! And thank you to @melodyehsani for hosting and creating such a magical space and @taibeau for moderating. #youdeservethetruth #realtalk #ericawilliamssimon #books #booklist #getinspired #buythisbook

Happy Pub Day @missewill! This book challenged me to be brave in the face of fear. Erica’s vulnerability and life lessons made this book 10x more relatable. After quitting her job in nonprofit without a solid plan, Erica went through a series of phases to find her true passion. What I love most about this gem is the fact that you can read it at your own pace without feeling like time is getting away from you. She encourages readers to find community, question EVERYTHING and be mindful of the stories you internalize. It’s never too late to rework your story. #YouDeservetheTruth

A bit of truth from my journey: Every time I step out of the race, I win. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is so easy to get caught up in running a race without ever stopping to realize whether or not the prize is something that you actually want; Striving and competing in a place that you may have played in for a season but was never where your spirit belonged. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It is the side effect of being “in the world but not of it”.

Y’all. Fam. People. The final book is officially in my hands and I’m flipping out!!! Like, tripping. Lol Largely because I can’t wait to start a conversation with all of you on May 7th about how to find and live our true stories in a world full of lies. But also because it’s a reminder that words become things and you are good enough to make what you want to make, say what you want to say and do what you want to do.✨ #youdeservethetruth

The tweet that keeps on giving. Every single day, someone replies or retweets and tells me how much they needed this. I didn’t know when I shared it that it would hit such a nerve. But in hindsight, I guess it resonated because I am loudly rejecting the story that your identity is tied to the company you work for, that your resume matters more than your values, or that who you are is somehow only valuable when it is attached to a capitalist endeavor. I woke up today so grateful that I know who I am and that so many others are waking up to know the truth. It’s a powerful thing. #YouDeserveTheTruth

But in hindsight, I guess it resonated because I am loudly rejecting the story that your identity is tied to the company you work for, that your resume matters more than your values, or that who you are is somehow only valuable when it is attached to a capitalist endeavor. I woke up today so grateful that I know who I am and that so many others are waking up to know the truth. It’s a powerful thing. #YouDeserveTheTruth . Follow 👉🏼 @missewill for more wisdom. .
