Including you, Black Girl.
There are many days when the world doesn’t allow us to be, but I cherish the ones when we can return to our instincts, to freely exude our natural femininity and let others bask in it.

Imagine more days like that ❤

  1. I have been moving towards that goal since I retired in August. Finally I was able to throw off the tough woman persona. The fight or flight response was turning me into a person I didn’t like. Early retirement was my best decision for 2018. My pension is not as much but staying in a toxic environment is not worth a few extra dollars. I’ve been trusting God to meet my financial Needs and the Lord has always come through. Now I focus on my Photography, art and writing. In fact I’ve been in several art shows since October both in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Art and Photography allow me to get the accumulated poison out of my system. I’m enjoying spending time with my brother Stephen and attending church. Balance has returned to my life.

  2. Honestly sis! There are so many labels attached to us these days, some of which apply and some of which don’t. We have the same skin colour but we’re not all the same. That’s what makes us human. We need to allow ourselves to be ourselves first and foremost and the world will follow suit. Xx

  3. Let black girls be black girls. PERIOD! Society has molded us into everything other than us. A while back my lady was kind of scared to wear her God-given (natural hair) because of her job. The thing is it’s not just her who is plagued with these thoughts. Until recently black women are just now STARTING to feel comfortable in their skin.
    As I typed that it made me realize that we as a whole especially our men need to become more entrepreneurial. If we provided ourselves with jobs, then we wouldn’t ever feel any way. And we could express ourselves how we want, when we want. Not saying that we can’t now, but when you’re in another man’s house, you abide by that man’s rules. And that’s the subtlety that white people will never understand or they do and just like to play stupid. I’m going with the latter. They have imposed these thoughts onto us and we are in the stages of rectifying the nonsense.

    1. Riiiiiiight.. so who is benefitting from us always covering up and manipulating our natural hair? As I mentioned, nothing wrong with weaves, straightening and wigs to switch things up, but ALL the time seems excessive.

      You know I’m with you on the entrepreneurial tip! Lemme know if you wanna invest in TDG 😉
