Today I am feeling a little lighter than just a week or 2 ago. I'm still processing but not as enraged.
But I wanted to share a post that was shared on ig May 29.
I've been feeling heavy lately ( 🧡 ). How're you feeling?
Sometimes I find that it is difficult to stay
Not a phrase I made up but certainly something I believe. The last few months have been tough for me and those around me. But we persevere. The last few months have been uncertain. But we stay hopeful. The last few weeks have been emotional & tiring. But we keep fighting the good fight.
Life has me reflecting more lately. From covid, systemic oppression & the security uncertainty it brought, negative projections from my (used-to-be) lanlord due to her misplaced anxiety of losing $$ during covid, to the overt racism & recent killings of people that look just like me and my family...
Processing all of this has been tough, to say the least.

Love thyself first, sis.
Thank you for coming to my Tedtalk.
I'm pretty convinced I have a guardian angel. And I saw her this morning.
I went to sleep around 4:34a this am because I was in my bag and that tends to keep me up.
But sometimes this causes me to go to sleep too abruptly or on the “wrong side” of the bed.
I’m so extra. I like to be put to bed in a certain fashion. Like, I have a whole routine. I need to floss, brush my teeth, wash my face, moisturize...
IAL365 is currently working on a few products that will serve as resources to help us sort through our thoughts during this pandemic (& the different future life battles to come) + a good reason take a much needed break from watching a screen.
That's coming very soon...
In the meantime, here's a list of different uses for your IAL365 Planner:
- Use for daily quick-writes...
1.) “You look beautiful.” = enough love for self that you giving another woman a compliment comes easily.
2.) “I feel beautiful.” = enough love for self that a compliment does not cause one to deflect, deny or feel inclined to say the opposite of the compliment, as to diminish his/her light & go back to being unnoticed...
