Sorry Not Sorry

Hi Guys,

Sorry there haven't been many posts lately but this past week and weekend has been nerve wrecking and my anxiety is up at a all time high. Trying to figure out how to deal with the horrible events that have happened is just taxing and soul draining. 

I work in a corporate environment and I KNOW plenty of folk in that part of my life AND my personal life that voted for that monster and still support him, EVEN after nazi's...literal Nazi's have basically been given a pass to abuse everyone else's civil rights. 

As a black woman, it is mentally exhausting to continue to see this type of shit keep happening. It is mentally exhausting to see people defend and coddle racist. Especially from people who claim to be a friend, associate or allie.

But people never fail to show you who they truly are...never.

I am legit scared for my sons, my mom, my sisters, nieces and nephews. I'm scared for my entire family and we are a mix bag of pretzels. 

Sad part is, this man isn't just enabling nazi's. He is setting up policies that will do real and true harm to not just people of color but the very same people who voted him in. Policies that will tear this country apart. We've come far as a nation but I see plenty are willing to take us back. And our government is basically impotent. To many of our so called leaders (and that's on both sides) sit back and talk only. Call out shit but won't take action...I can't deal.

I have no time or patience in my life to befriend bigots or enablers. I only have room in my life for people who truly want to be in it or a part of it...on and offline. People truly have to make a decision on what side of history they want to be a part of and that is sad! 

I know I got off point in reflection to this blog but I had to get make it clear. We can all agree to disagree but I won't and will never convince folk whom have already made up their mind and refuse to see me as a human being. And you can miss me with the I don't see color bs. 

There won't be any posts from me next week either, I need to do a bit of self care and I don't want my frustrations to reflect in my posts. I'll start posting again the week after next.

I leave ya'll with this. What is the cost of your soul? Your life? You children's? Their children's? The future looks pretty damn bleak right about now.

Take care of yourself BUT also be aware and pay attention. Protect yourselves and your families. Because I have a feeling, its going to get worse before it gets better.

Crystals & Me

So I'm trying a new thing, well actually there's a couple of "new things" I'm trying but I'm gonna go slow here, lols.

I'm looking into new ways to find inner peace, calm and all that. I've discovered that Crystals can have many purposes in your life. Like healing is one prime way of folks use them...right now I'm still trying to discover the meaning of crystals (there are a lot of them...) and which ones I think will apply to area's of my life. 

So! I started off with like six of them. I have two chains, a bracelet and the others I pretty much carry around on different areas of me, like my pants/dress pockets, wallet...etc. Heck one day, I even put one in my bra, lols. Why we always stuffing something in there? lols. 




















Chains:
1. Amethysts - Abundance stone, though it is not the best known prosperity stone
2. Citrine - Joyful stone with bright energy which lights up many aspects of lives of those who work with it

Bracelet:
Rose Quartz - Stone of the heart, a Crystal of Unconditional Love. It carries a soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness and healing, nourishment and comfort.

Tumble Stones:
Rose Quartz
Blue Lace Agate - Blue lace agate is a gentle, calming stone that engenders tranquility and grace.
Amazonite - Stone said to be of truth, honor, communication, integrity, hope, and trust. It is often associated with communication. 

I purchased my stones from Namaste Book store in NYC, its near my job. But I discovered another crystal shop not to far away from me here in Jersey which I'm going to be visited this upcoming weekend for a reading...I can't wait. I'll let you guys now how it goes. 

And if you're interested in learning about Crystals, this site here is a perfect way to discover their meanings.

A Quote or Two




I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
Martin Luther King Jr.

You're not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it.
Malcolm X
