So after a year I am going back to counselling. This is not my first time but my fourth. People are generally scared of going to therapy and I can understand that. But why do you want to wait until you have hit rock bottom to get help? Your life is in danger at that point. Stress can literally kill you and that’s my biggest fear, which is why I’m trying to learn how to manage it. I’ve tried myself and it isn’t working, so I’m seeking professional help. Isn’t it ironic how depression doesn’t want you to live but once you move past it you’re actually scared to die? Anyways, what is a bigger fear of yours, going to a counsellor or risking your life? Prevention is key my loves. You want to start getting help as soon as you feel like you need it. Trust me, once you hit your lowest point, counselling will not be on your mind.

Two days til half term! I'm really looking forward to putting teacher life on hold. Sometimes, 'teacher' feels like a mask to put on, a weight on your shoulders or a daily sacrifice. I know that many bemoan our holidays but to them, I say - live my reality then make a judgement! I love what I do and I cannot think of anything else I'd rather do. However, a break is most welcome.

Do you work in a environment with other Indian people? How does that impact you? Is it a positive thing or a negative? .

"My relationship with Kathak is a tricky one. It has so many layers and each shines out in response to where I am in my life in a different way. Art, discipline, rhythm, culture, age old traditions, exercise. To study, to move, to feel, to emote. How can you experience all of these routes all at the same time? The idea is to allow yourself to fail, to allow the form to fully take control of you before you can begin to control it in your own specific way. My journey in kathak has been one giant contrast, two gurus, two styles, two minds. Each unique in their own way, each rooting back to tradition in very different ways. So as a result I was taught to make each movement my own, to find my own journey through each moment and turn it into something new. With time I’ve let my mind fall deeper into the world of rhythm and kathak is no longer just a set of beautiful movements for me. Everybody’s journey in dance takes it’s own shape with time, and after dancing my whole life, only now do I feel like my body is beginning to internalise each movement in correspondence with it’s history. Every quick spin, flick of the wrist, shift of the eye has a story, and it’ll take me a lifetime to figure it all out."

Next in our series, we feature a real-life 💕Radha.💕 No she’s not typically associated with Navratri, but every little kid can relate to someone who loves to dance, so hooray! ✨ .

@reshmagajjar is one of the first South Asian professional dancers to "make it" on mainstream stages. She was THAT girl in the yellow dress who opened Oscar winning film @lalaland. She has danced on stage at the American Music Awards--for @selenagomez in 2017 and @dualipa just last week. Oh, and she toured worldwide with Madonna, Ricky Martin and A.R. Rahman.💥💥💥 .

Growing up, though Reshma danced at one of the most elite ballet academies in Northern California, she never thought she would dance for a living. After high school, she assumed she was done. But in college she felt strangely sad, like something was missing. When she decided to take a dance class, she felt alive again. The Professor asked her--"What are you doing here? You belong on stage." 😲😲🌈🌈 .

That experience led her to earn a scholarship to a prestigious performing arts studio, which she juggled while finishing college. (Most dancers don't do that!) At the end of that year, she had an agent and was ready to audition. 💪🏽💪🏽 .

But for the first four or five years, auditions were grueling. "Casting Directors didn't understand me. I wasn't white. I wasn't black. I was South Asian, and I think I was a little too ethnic.”✨ .

The authors of the ancient myths didn't actually tell us much about Radha. She loves to dance, she loves to play. She hung out with Krishna a lot. 🤷🏽‍♀️
Reshma--as real-life Radha--offers so much more depth and inspiration. Who is Radha? She's a relentlessly committed artist and athlete who is propelled by her passion. As she moves, she creates love and light that can illuminate the universe. 💕💕💕 .

Please share Reshma’s story with young kids who have big dreams. And in the meantime, tag YOUR favorite Radha’s. We know there are so many! 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽

[filipina beauty/fernando amorsolo] this one's a little more jumbled than i'd like but my brain is on fire sos ;_;
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i understand that the path to loving yourself in a world where you are made to grow up hating everything about yourself is harder than the lil online positivity circles we got going. like it's more than no filter selfies & hashtags and i will always remember my own journey. it's a lot of us who (want to) commit suicide because of our struggles with internalised racism & colorism. we don't often talk about it (and if you are white especially) you never see people straight up admit they want to kill themselves bc they weren't born white. i wish for us to be more open about these struggles, so when i discuss self esteem in the black/asian/pi community i will always come from a place of love, even as it burns me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it's so hard to penetrate the shells we bury ourselves in. not 5 years ago if you had told me i should stop bleaching my skin & killing my hair it would have been like talking to a brick wall lmfao. i didn't give a fuck!! i only wanted to be white and if i had to destroy myself i thought so be it. at the time, i thought that by now i'd have gotten rhinoplasty & eyelid surgery & liposuction done, i was so sure of it!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
when we engage in things like bleaching online prescence(stop using white emoji if ur red/yellow/brown ur never gonna make race transition happen) & expressing hateful sentiment against ethnic features - we are poisoning the air around us bc you never know who might see it and how it might make them feel, what it might cause them to do, like when i tell you not having white skin kills people it DOES
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
instead of fixating on how non-white you look in your pictures, let the colors pop - highlight your makeup or your outfit or the background n stop thinking about the way yr nose looks or yr face shape. spend less money on foundation and more money on cool lipsticks n highlighters. if u can't bring yourself to love who you are, love the people around you until it's real.

SINGLEHOOD
Reasons to singlehood😂😂But honestly speaking, I CHOOSE TO BE SINGLE at 19.Y is it so hard to tell people in the society I grew up in that I choose to be single till now?It’s like if u ain’t even had a single relationship by 19+there’s something wrong with you.

Y I choose to be single:
1)My parents r conservative n they do consider arranged marriage.So yep imma dead scared of them

2)I dunt feel ready for relationships at 19. I want to learn how to handle my life first and then look into another person

3)More focused on learning to love myself first before I’m ready to give it to another person

Why is everyone under pressure to be in a relationship? 
When did being single become a crime?
N the worst of all, when did self worth become associated with being in a relationship?
Being single does not make you a bad person Nor label you undesirable.
Getting into a relationship shouldn't be dictated by a feeling of inadequacy. You can't be with someone just because you're desperate to be with anyone or even if you are, it ain’t gonna end up being any good to u.
A lot of relationships I have seen around me till today hasn’t been love, but a certain social status.
The best things in life come to us when we r least expecting. It’s ok to be patient to wait for the right one:)
Your not incomplete without a companion.
You are your own person, meant to complete your own self.
Stop seeking for love and let it happen.
Do what is right for you and not for the society👍🏾👊🏽

SINGLEHOOD Reasons to singlehood😂😂But honestly speaking, I CHOOSE TO BE SINGLE at 19.Y is it so hard to tell people in the society I grew up in that I choose to be single till now?It’s like if u ain’t even had a single relationship by 19+there’s something wrong with you. Y I choose to be single: 1)My parents r conservative n they do consider arranged marriage.So yep imma dead scared of them 2)I dunt feel ready for relationships at 19. I want to learn how to handle my life first and then look into another person 3)More focused on learning to love myself first before I’m ready to give it to another person Why is everyone under pressure to be in a relationship?

The tough part about being so strong is that people forget that you’re human too. The strong person is allowed to have down days and feel like their life is out of order. The difference is, they know they will be okay but need the time to let the feeling pass. You don’t have to fix the strong persons problems, all you need to do is empathize and stay by their side. In no time, they will rise and be stronger than ever. I’m proud to be a strong person, but right now I just need a little break from being that person.

Rooting for the girls who are told they’re too dark to be pretty. Rooting for the girls who are told they aren’t thin enough to be pretty. Rooting for the girls who are told they are too skinny to be desired. Rooting for the girls who are silenced. Rooting for the girls who are told to make room for others rather than being allowed to create space for themselves. We are rooting for you, brown babes 🌺 resist and reject their beauty standards and their twisted gender roles. You are strong and beautiful. You are enough. | 🎨: @socialmaggieig

i)

While growing up, I was shamed a lot for being dark and fat- by friends, classmates, family and random strangers. I think it started in seventh grade with a classmate saying that he genuinely wonders who’d marry someone ‘who looked like that.’ By eighth grade, it became a normal, day to day thing to go through. I couldn’t get through a game of truth and dare without some inappropriate and disrespectful question about my weight coming up. I couldn’t get through a family function without a ‘family member’ pointing out that my weight is a problem for getting potential matches. Sometimes, the nicer people would give reassurances that my complexion would ‘clear up’ in a few years or that generally dusky girls get fair husbands. I’d often overhear classmates laugh over my body. I used to be a bright child interested in a bunch of things, but suddenly I was just that ‘unattractive fat girl’.I was unable to look at myself through any other lens.

Kali may be one of the most misunderstood devis. She's depicted as dark, so assumed to be scary 😒. She's adorned with morbid accessories, so assumed to be wild 😒. But our interpretation of her is 💥ultimate protectress💥. She is YOU when everything is on the line. She is Beatrice Kiddo (Kill Bill), Okoyo (Black Panther), and Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games). Kali isn't a monster--she fights monsters.✨ .

Please meet @seemahari. She was born and raised on the outskirts of Mumbai. Throughout her childhood, she was bullied and raised to think she was inferior because of the shade of her skin...that she would never know what it meant to be loved or adored. 💔 .

A few pivotal experiences gave her a new outlook on life. First, she fell in love with a boy for the first time. 😍😍 This might sound cliche, or so 1950's...but let's not forget that "supergirls" are often light-skinned girls. So when a boy looked at her as though she were Ash or Madhuri, it was actually a lifeline out of years of depression.✨ .

Second, artist and photographers in India were drawn to her face. @revapandit and @aanalsavaliya helped her create art and use her voice to change the interpretation of dark skin. 
These supporters helped her manifest as Goddess Kali.✨ .

In a beauty obsessed society and a beauty obsessed Instagram (truth), we feel it so important to open a dialogue with mothers about what messages we REALLY want to send to our kids--girls and boys. Seema's commitment to offering a new definition of "beautiful" is so important for the desi community. "Kali" kids ARE NOT monsters! How are you talking about this with your kiddos? 👊🏽🤟🏽💕

[Fernando Amorsolo / Burning of the Idols] — I wish(for someone who's smarter than me) to talk at length at the things our great-great-great's engaged in that our not so great's suppress entirely. things like gender, sexuality, & family dynamics, to our old traditional practices / spirituality. i think some dope art could be made exploring the intersections of these things !
☄️
this piece sparked from something one of my ma's friends said. (she not my tita anymore she's excommunicated by me) — we came into the topic of Precolonial Philippines, and I brought up the resurgence of #Baybayin (the language of the land before Sp*nish cancer, Kuya said😅) ... ex-tita comments, "it was one of the evil, backwards things we dropped when we were introduced to Christianity" ... before continuing into a tangent about all of the things we should be lucky we don't engage in the things our ancestors did... Fluid sexuality & "backwards family dynamics"...more of her own words ???? bitch I was so confused she came in like k*nye west 🤷🏽‍♀️ westernised conservative baby boomers of color are a TRIP and a fuckin half. Like, when you see these levels of hypocrisy, do you ever wonder how they would fare 30 years ago??? 130 years ago??? they play devil's advocate like they wouldn't be on the stake right next to their queer countrymen. I still burn in annoyance that I didn't stand my ground and tell her how ignorant she sounded, but... you know it's so hard to win battles against ignorant elders. at least we have each other for memes i guess!!

You’ve always been a taboo buster, but your most recent act of telling the world about your rape at 16 was so courageous. “...I have nothing to gain by talking about this. But we all have so much to lose if we put a time limit on telling the truth about sexual assault...”💔💔🙌🏾🙌🏾 .

The words you used to recount that traumatic event were so simple. So relatable. You offered a reference to girls, women and moms everywhere to say...”me too” or “maybe I should start talking about this with my kids.”✨ .

They say Lakshmi is depicted with her hand open, coins spilling out. This gesture is a symbol of how good fortune is fleeting, you can lose it at anytime. You set an amazing example of prioritizing what matters. Thank you! 🙏🏽 .

And in case you actually read this, swipe through the whole way. Let us send you and #littlehands some Goddess Power! 💕👸🏽😘

A guy direct messaged me a couple days back and asked me " how is it that in some pictures you look dark and some pictures you look fair "

At first I was not keen on responding to the messages but I did and I am not ashamed to say that I do filter my images. Later on I saw a status on Facebook that claimed dark skinned people are warriors from wakanda. Which I had obviously taken offence to as being a dark skinned person always brought on that extra ounce of pain knowing that there are people that base their perception of you purely based on the color of your skin.  As a child growing up, I was beaten, battered and bruised simply because of my skin color. Making friends or excelling in things were difficult because I never wanted to be noticed as being noticed meant I would be judged and bullied. I never confided in my parents or anyone for that matter. I simply chose to self loathe.  And that got me mental illnesses that I regret up until this very day. Understand that just because a person is a specific color it does not make them any less of the word beautiful.  Above lies a picture that is not edited in any sort of way or form . I sat near my lounge window and my baby sister aged 12 took the picture.  Which I then chose to upload.  That is my skin color.  And I am melanin .  I am beautiful.  I am unfair and lovely.  I am dark and happy.  Do not conform to society's idea of beauty . Be you and spark the flame within you. #unfairandlovely
