You tell em Solo! Keep rocking your natural hair ladies! Regardless of what they say… WE are changing the standard of beauty… most thougt it was a trend/fad that would soon die out, but major beauty corporations have had to jump on board because they realized it’s not a fad. More products that cater to natural hair are popping up on shelves everyday. It’s not a trend… we’re educating, inspiring, and embracing our God Given beauty! Some folks just can’t handle that… #naturalhair #naturalhairsistas #mynaturalsistas #itsheretostay
"..but at least i know i can make a difference. i want people to understand their potential and greatness and what they’re capable of doing. i think that if they do that they can understand their purpose and what they need to do for the world or even for themselves, even if it’s just their family or friends. i think if they have that ability to understand themselves and have more of a self-awareness for their life, it won’t get easier but it will probably be more peaceful. you have to have a peace of mind i think in order to further your purpose and to live a happy life… despite all the differences, we’re all the same… love and peace are like my two favorite words, i think those are the words of the year, or even the words for my life. it’s all universal, everything is all a cycle. if people hate, they hate. but if people love, it’s better."
Me. Yep, I just quoted myself. Via a documentary my friend featured me in. (via jasales
"It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly—it’s the best advice ever given me. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly, my darling."
You are allowed to terminate toxic relationships.
You are allowed to walk away from people who hurt you.
You are allowed to be angry and selfish and unforgiving.
You don’t owe anyone an explanation for taking care of yourself.

"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers—so many caring people in this world."
