body.. My lips, my curves, my hair, and even my nerves made me believe I was only my body. I was bullied for the way my body looks and that made me believe I wasn’t beautiful, I wasn’t worth it, that I was angry black girl. But my body also helped me realize I am unique, one of a kind, beautiful, and I am more than my body. I love and appreciate my beautiful body, even though I have been constantly bullied from it, I know my self worth does not come from them, it comes from me. I may not love my body 24/7 but I can now look in the mirror and like what I see most days!
mind.. I believed the world was cruel and everything negative but that only led me to believe that purpose in life is to uplift my communities and be the light in a room full of darkness. My experiences also made me believe there is so much beauty in the world including myself, who has an obligation to the world to reveal more beauty. I'm use to holding back my words, scared of being judged as that black opinionated girl, but I am taking back my voice to be heard.
soul.. My lows and highs have took me on a journey that has been essential to my growth and while I am still growing, I now learned make my journey as beautiful as my destination and take advantage of what the world has to offer. I am love and do all things through love that shows through my actions between friends and strangers.
ancestry& spirituality.. I am a continuation of love and light from my ancestors who still live in and through me. I accept and embrace all blessings and love the universe has to offer me, because anything outside of love simply does not exist. As long as I keep that mindset I surround myself by constant blessings because the universe is here at my advantage.
