Want to know a secret to being successful? Be consistent, and be helpful. You won't be able to save or serve everyone but those who become part of your tribe will appreciate you showing up and providing value. Over time, they can't help but want to pay you. So think about it...Are you consistent?Are you helpful?If not, how can you change that today?

"If you're too broke to invest in yourself, get used to being broke" - common sense..Ever wanted to get a website, hire a business coach, buy a program, but you didn't have the money to do it? Start setting money aside NOW. You don't want to have to pass on golden opportunities because you splurged at the bar 🙄.Take your money seriously and put that green energy back into yourself and your dreams. It'll literally pay off 💰

No. 025 • C’est La Vie (4/6)The year I turned 30, I received an emotional call from a cousin regarding my aunt, an enormously compassionate and loving woman who doubled as my maternal figure. When I heard the tragic news (see No. 015), I immediately felt the painful dismembering of my Soul. Within a year, I had become the worst version of myself that I had ever known._________For about two years, I closed myself off from the few friends I had, and my day-to-day schedule consisted of running errands, attending classes, ignoring sympathy calls/texts, and being bitter. On top of that, I - along with other brown-toned students - had to deal with grade deflection from three professors and blatant bigotry from immature classmates (a common occurrence at my chi chi frou frou university). And, my mother was driving me mad with her irrational voicemails/demands. _________Then one semester, I took three back-to-back exams, aced them all while I was sleep deprived, and suffered a breakdown. I was midway into a fall semester, and I was due to graduate in six months with my master's degree. I just remember being on the floor, staring at my computer screen after I got the results from the final exam, and thinking, ‘I can’t do this anymore. If I don’t take a break, I’m gonna flunk out of this program.’ I was dealing with a combo platter of street harassment practically EVERY day from brown-skinned men who had nothing better to do with their time; insecure professors and peers were humiliating me because they believed people of my hue were a “threat” to their social/intellectual order; and a needy mother who was driving me insane. The one person I could talk to was now dead, so I was on my own._________I stopped staring at my screen and started typing a four-paragraph e-mail to my dean, whereby I requested a leave of absence for one academic year. We met in her office that week; I made my case as to why I needed a temporary break from the program, and also noted that I’d take up talk therapy during my time “off.” She heard me out, granted the leave of absence, congratulated me for partaking in self-care, and wished me a strong return the next year.

Billie “Buckwheat” Thomas (1931-1980) African American child actor that played the character of Buckwheat in the Our Gang (Little Rascals) short films from 1934 until the series’ end in 1944. Although the character he played was often the subject of controversy in later years for containing elements of the “pickaninny” stereotype, Thomas always defended his work in the series, pointing out that Buckwheat and the rest of the black Our Gang kids were treated as equals to the white kids in the series.

For the first time in my life, I walked into a restaurant and asked for a table for one. And it felt pretty great. Once upon a time, eating alone was something I avoided because if anyone saw me, I didn't want them to think I was a loner. But over the years, I've come to a place where I deeply enjoy and value solitude. I realized today, that only happens when you are entirely at peace with yourself. When you are ok with you, wholly, fully and completely. Yes, there's always room for growth. But you recognize where you're at and you're able to celebrate that. What ever growth still remains, you are confident you will get there. But right here, right now, you love who you are and know that you will always be enough. Only then could you cherish time spent with yourself...Also, this was the best Pizza I ever had. Like, oh my wordddddd 😍❤️🇮🇹...#GreatGod #Italy #Venice #Padua #Travel #Travelnoir #Verilymoment #adventure #wanderlust #adventurer #seetheworld #travelmore #traveller #travelers #traveler #traverlerslife #wanderlust #italianpizza #travelbug #blackgirlstravel #travellife #globetrotting #traveling #inspiration #styleblogger #Fashionista #melaninpoppin #solotravel #blackexcellence #Browngirlbloggers
