“And then I add a Mother F&$ker so you ignorant Ni$$as hear me!” #intentionally#onpurpose . . . You don’t have to like it but it is my duty to speak full truth to power, to tell the whole truth in ways that are painfully clear. . . . Here’s where I am: too many Black people purport to care about Black people when in reality they only care about some Black people, to keep it 💯 they only really care about themselves, which is fine but I need you to own your selfishness and get out of the way. There is much to much work to do and you don’t need to be in the way. #isaidwhatisaid#freenegro#wordsmatter#cbcfalc19 #nbjcadvocacy.
🔴Long but important one this morning🔴 Let me start by saying I’m not looking for praise or a pep talk(but a proofreader may not be a bad idea😆). This kind of trolling, while people think it’s funny, comes from something inside they want to manifest and know it’s unacceptable. I went into advocacy well aware I’d encounter these kind of people. It does get to me sometimes, like all of us(even those who say it doesn’t). I’m grateful I’m in a headspace to take a breath and move on after a bit when it does. The bigger concern I have is for those not quite strong enough to hear this abusive language. Those still in their abusive situation, without the ability or mental strength to see through the bullshit. Those who will see this as a validation of their abusers actions; reinforcing the idea that “it’s my fault”. I’m concerned for the women in his life...especially if he has daughters. Even as a DV survivor I’m the first to admit many women manipulate the system, and innocent men are wrongfully punished. However it does not justify this trolling behavior. To the women(and men) who take the time to read this, if you’re in an abusive situation, there are people who believe you, will support you, and help you. You’re not alone. Do not let people like this make you think it’s your fault. If you’re ready to leave and need assistance, DM me. I will find you resources where you are. Your life matters. It’s NOT your fault.
Children are resilient. Like, ridiculously so. My 2.5 year old son I parent bounces back so quickly from things that I would probably cry and moan over. Both physically and emotionally, (though, let’s be honest, toddlers can be minute to minute emoters and movers 🤷🏼♀️😂), he is resilient. One trigger he has, though, is when I ask, ‘Are you listening well right now?’ Or ‘That’s not really very nice, is it?’ He either doesn’t want to hear it and continue to be stubborn or he loses it crying and you can see the sweet remorse on his little face. I never know which side I will get when I say those things. . He is beginning to understand that some things don’t feel good to hear, especially when they are about him or directed at him and how he’s behaving or how he is or what he’s doing. We are all having to learn how to appropriately handle the stubbornness that is deeply ingrained in him, because it’s in his DNA. I am so stubborn, y’all. 🤦🏼♀️ I’ve learned to curb it over the years, but it still rears its head and sometimes it takes everything in me not to lash out at him for everything I don’t always like about myself that I see in him. He holds a mirror up to myself to see who I really am, and I don’t always like what I see. But I can’t crush his spirit because of any of those things. I love him, and in loving him, I have to choose to love myself also, because I am part of what makes him who he is. I choose to love myself, even when it’s super damn hard to love me, and when I can’t do it for me, I do it for him, for his brother and sister, because I love them deeply and I am apart of them and want them to know that even in their weaknesses that they are lovable, worthy, enough humans. . Shouldn’t it be the same with birth parents? That choosing to love them, even when it’s super damn hard, even when they can’t show up, and reflecting that in how you speak to your children about them, is unbelievably
#wordsmatter As yoga teachers we guide folks through the physical practice with purposeful sequencing and intelligent anatomical queuing, ideally guiding the body by way of technique, breath and presence. But there is another realm to uncover within ourselves as teachers. It comes from trusting the source of wisdom inside of us and allowing our authentic voice to inspire, elevate and activate our students beyond the boundaries of the physical. Please join me for a soul engaging journey through the art and practice of speaking the language of heart and spirit. Designed specifically for teachers who are interested in developing their authentic voice, this workshop includes discussions and practices on energy, light, spirit, passion, mysticism, inclusion and purpose as well as developing the space, courage and reverence required for those truths to emerge. Schedule: Friday: 7-9 Saturday: 1-6 Sunday: 9-2 $225 10 hours YTT300/RYT200 CEU Hope to see you! Msg me for more info. ✌🏽❤️🙏🏽✨ #yoga#yogateacher#yogateachertraining#voice#truth#beyondasana#practice#student#alwaysastudent#spirit#heart#soul#bluelotusnc#raleigh#carringtonjacksonyoga
Evil is a destructive force, while good is a creative force. If you find yourself tearing others down, try switching to building others up. That’s how we imitate what is good. #pcc167#wordsmatter#good#pcc

Le parole contano. Il linguaggio ha senso nella misura in cui viene utilizzato per trasmettere valore. Vorrei che le sue parole corrispondessero ai suoi pensieri e ai suoi sentimenti, che non ferissero inutilmente, che splendessero, invece di essere sporche palle di neve con una pietra nascosta al centro. Le parole vanno salvate. #wordsshapereality#wordsmatter#vogueitalia
Words matter..especially the ones we say to ourselves. It’s easy to be critical, so put in the work to be kind to yourself. I start every morning using my free app to get a daily affirmation. It’s my reminder that I get to choose my words and thoughts every day. What do you plan to say to yourself today?
