B E C O M I N G. 🖤 | "sometimes the night wakes in the middle of me and i can do nothing but become the moon." (salt x @nayyirah.waheed) | so much is happening in the middle of me. God, help me become.
D A D D Y. 🖤 | He was the only dad in the entire theatre that broke a dead silence with, "Mookie, I love you!" at her very first dance recital. We all looked at him like he was crazy. And then it dawned on me, he is crazy....crazy about his baby girl. I knew then that I would spend many days ahead being embarrassed for her, but also overjoyed for her because she has the best daddy in this whole entire world. Happy Father's Day to the father of our child, the man of our squad and the crazy of our crew. #HappyFathersDay
D A D. 🖤 | I blame him for my entrepreneurial spirit. Before it was a trend...before it was cool....before it was the norm, there was him - the first entrepreneur I've ever known. Working, winning, building, falling and getting back up again. It's crazy how this very same spirit won't let me + @crownme_mc go. It's in our blood. We will have our own or we will die trying. Happy Father's Day to our greatest blueprint! Your love + your lessons have raised your girls into women that want to make you (really) proud. #HappyFathersDay
M I N E. 🙏🏾 | here lately, i have been searching for something for me. some place where i can get instead of give. some place that would energize me instead of drain me. the daily juggle has a weight that will wear on you if you aren't careful. find a space that is yours. a space you can call your own. a place that makes the load lighter. a place where you feel at home. yesterday i tried yoga for the first time and i am pretty sure i have found mine. namaste. #MyMat#MyMagic#MyMess#WelcomeHome
T G F E. 🎀 | Easter Sunday was filled with worship, our youth ministry egg hunt + ham, friend chicken, Macaroni & cheese, cabbage, rice, candied yams, potato salad and cornbread made with love by me & my MIL. This is me + my favorite girl. Real churchy and what not. The Mr. was somewhere missing in action being churchy too. Y'all know how we do. 🤷🏾♀️#HangingWithTheHunts#ThankGodForEaster
P O T E N T I A L. 🌸 | A seed was never meant to just be a seed. It was meant to one day bloom. I've been living like a seed these days - full of potential + God-given purpose - but not doing the work. Avoiding it. Making excuses for it. Ignoring it. But over the past few days I've had to have some real conversations with myself. "Why are you living like you're ok with dying full of potential?" The truth is: I'm not ok with it. It's actually my biggest fear - to never experience full bloom. So I've decided that I am ready to put in the work. It's going to take some toiling + tending. I'll be spending less time scrolling...less time being unproductive...less time minding other folks business, less time hoping and wishing...and less time settling. I'm ready to bloom. 📸: @chilldesignsphotography #EvolvHer#BornToLevelUp
