I’m interested in authentic connection… A life filled with an abundance of love, art/music , travel, romance.
Hand written poetry Fucking your soul into the Cosmos & co-creating love, to “Say Yes” by Floetry
Midnight soaks in a clawfoot tub
Love letters to, and from my love…
& Writing love letters to life…by simply living & experiencing it. & doing my best to not ever take any of it for granted.
I have such a habit-of digressing. Back to this blessing [Life]
& tings I into
Traveling the world on a foodie & culturally centered type itinerary Complementary energy; Easy, like Sunday Morning
Lionel Richie Rich in love, life, experience Adventuring, learning & expanding appreciating every step & every person
Every ting…along this path Is for my growth and advancement
I like slow meals and a slow dance
Proper romance That continues to expand & blossom
Locally led food tours 10 courses via 711 horses Or Hiking in the jungle, to freshly foraged ingredients Breaking bread, crossing cultures Ancestral wisdom & veneration of lineage
Exchanging energy, history, love & community, appreciating (there goes that gratitude again. I’m telling ya, it really changes & shifts shit) but yeah.
🌍 Connection ✨
Collecting memories. Volunteering, serving, giving back in some capacity, as I visit each country.
No matter what town or city, I’m always grateful to Be. Thankful to see a new day, let alone a new horizon, perspective, & hemisphere.
Love…is always in my ear and always in this Air- Sign With a water rising Jupiter approved to make moves Even through temporary wipeouts (thanks Saturn) the wave is always smoothe..
Cuz, it’s the peace of knowing I’m always where I’m meant to be & Doing what I’m meant to do.
Acknowledging that change is the only constant & happiness, love, peace, bliss, etc. comes from within + You are your own Hero & Saviour-it’s up to you whether you sink or swim Good In Frank Oceans Know Thyself: I am the medicine, I am the spell, I am the potion
I am the Source & aligned with Source?
The force (alignment + magick ✨) is strong in this one.
& living life to the fullest, on my own fucking terms 🤟🏿
I had such a tremendous experience(s) this weekend. So much love. So much celebrating. So much quality time with people I don’t get to spend time with that often. It was simply beautiful.
& Also, TONS of work prepping for the ting. Being 1000% present & attentive during the ting.
After a successful, & I do mean full, day (week+ prep) celebrating the woman who helped anchor me to this world…I’m exhausted. Very grateful and very full (love, gratitude, community) and this morning I was prompted to slow tf down.
Please believe this was a v painful (thanks Saturn) reminder as I was carrying the bags of leftover 🗑 to the curb-think, cans, beer & wine bottles) I did some maneuver that was the wrong fucking way to maneuve 🤨 (move) apparently 😂 but that last bag sent me to my doctors office this morning.
& so, 1 steroid shot and a couple of prescriptions later, here I am.
Im actually writing in bed. Wondering if this shit gonna kick in to full gear or stall at 80%. Well. Grateful for everything that led me here, still. Cuz all that work and energy was absolutely worth it.
If being away from my family for 20+ years has taught me anything, it’s to cherish your fucking moments and especially, your people. So. I will never regret showing up and showing tf out, for my love, fam & friends. People should know (ofc not just on 1 day outta the year, no) consistently feel and know how much you care for and love them. We are placed here to love. & to enjoy ourselves-whatever tf that might look like to you.
& as I recognize the lessons in real time more and more now, I’m grateful for the shit. Cuz it only helps make me better.
You gotta be it, to receive it (authentically)
& give it to yourself first, before ever trying to replenish your well.
Be your own water. You the well, too.
🤔 I think the muscle relaxer & anti inflammatory 💊 kickin in, lolol. That’s all the epiphanies from me (fa now 😎)
I’m talking bout Karmic relationships, karmic ties, soulmates, etc. Yeah. All dem, lolol
Has been the…well I wouldn’t say my ruin, but the stress, the drama 🎭 and extra shit that’ll have you like:
The heartache and heartbreak; which is, tbh, sometimes self inflicted when we exaggerate someone’s presence and their place in our lives- yeah, been there, not doing that again.
Or, when we make these temporary lessons in passing…our forever person.
Your everything was sposed to simply be the thing that reminded you not to follow the same path or patterns.
We, drawn to our karmic past lifetimes like a magnet, attract these folx and get into romantic relationships with them, when they was sposed to just be the lesson, or a even a reminder, personified.
We really should’ve just kept it cool, kept it cute & kept it pushin- & not have romantic or sexual (did you know there’s something called sexual soulmates? Thought that was cool) ties to them this go round.
Merry. And Mary.
Twin Flame/Karmic Lover/Ex Forecast: Circles and cloudy.
A time. Once again, Mercury rx is almost fully upon us. Ask for clarity. & discernment, bby.
You know…it’s the small things, seemingly little things like… just the way I live my life now:
I don’t have to rush for things.
I’m never in a rush to do anything. Like before- in the past things seemed so “life or death” or “now or never”and I get it. Some shit is urgent, some tings are on a time crunch. But in general? my life, is not. The way I move in the world now, is not. & I’m so gd grateful.
Especially as a Life path 4 & heavy Saturn ruled person-plus- I have a Virgo Mars 🙂 I was born puttin in work 😂
So. To get out of my own work hard, work harder mode, took some…yep, you guessed it: work 😂
But damn I’m truly grateful to be here now: Flow. Alignment.
And whilst we are here, lemme bless ya life wit some actual Junkanoo rushing from our beautiful island nation 🇧🇸
Is my modus operandi- as I count my blessings (can’t really, they’re innumerable) and recount the amount of joy, bliss, blessings, and I mean…just miraculous ass shit-that is my life.
What a time.
What a ride.
What a life.
I’m so grateful. The lives that I’ve lived…the things I’ve been able to experience…wow. Give thanks.
Don’t leave this plane with regrets. Try/do your best. And fucking remember to LIVE while you are alive. Life is so beautiful and there is so much to see, so many wonderful beings (human & animal) that you will encounter-that will continue to unlock more levels to your life story.
No one is sent to you, to us by accident. I have been and am absolutely blessed to have lived the way I live. To love the way I love. & to be loved. To be seen. Heard. Adored. Cared for, by the people that have come into my life.
And ofc not everyone was all good, had the best intentions, etc. but they were (& are, haters gonna hate forever I think) invaluable to me. Because their dishonesty, their betrayal, the hurt and tears that I have cried over some of them…was/is never in vain.
First of all, tears are healing. We are our own personal waterfall.
& these folks taught me some invaluable lessons; about life, myself and other human beings as we relate to one another. So. I call em lessons in growing and knowing your worth. Discernment. & keeping certain energies away from you and your aura.
Ok. Less time on them folx and more on love.
& I knowwwwwww (trust me I know) this cliché as fuck, but you gotta love yourself. Cuz once you really get there; to the core, down to your roots…you start living in your truth. You accept and love yourself & your authentic expression. And being grounded like that? With a healthy self concept…that’s a magickal ass place to be.
The love and respect that you have for yourself, will be reflected in your relationships. It affects who and what you align with.
And. What you tolerate and allow. Or don’t.
These connections will either nourish and sustain us, as we grow, evolve and age.
Or, will they drain us; our life force and energy.
Surround yourself with peace. & people who feel like home. Who you can absolutely be yourself around-there is no letting hair down. Cuz it was that way when you walked in the door.
Life is to precious and finite to feel discomfort in someone’s presence-based on familiarity, association, time spent..nah
The quality of your friendships and relationships in general, mirror the quality of your life I think.
And as someone who is 11th House ruled (my Aquarius sun + my Capricorn Venus is in the 11th) I have made/formed/created/sustained some pretty beautiful and bad ass connections & relationships with many wonderful humans from all walks of the planet (I’m also a Sagittarius moon 🛫)
To say I’ve lived a very…interesting (but fun, also enlightening, etc) life- from Atlanta to California and so many places in between and outside of that…is definitely an understatement. It’s been wild (not always the good kind 😂) but a hellova ride nonetheless and I take none of it for granted.
Looking forward to the new chapters of this book 😎🤙🏿
Always (Until the trees and seas just up and fly away) Always (Until the day that eight times eight times eight is four) Always (Until the day that is the day that are no more) Did you know you’re loved by somebody (Until the day the earth starts turnin’ right to left) Always (Until the earth just for the sun denies itself) I’ll be lovin’ you forever (Until dear mother nature says her work is through) Always (Until the day that you are me and I am you) Always (Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky Until the ocean severs every mountain high) Always mm mm
“As” by Stevie Wonder
A love. A bliss. A connection. Joy.…feelings, emotions & logic: all in alignment. And remembering the dream, the gift that is love requires no additional thought. Just feel.
I’ve been off from work for a few hours. & enjoying music from a time before. & the incomparable Mr. Wonder is playing on my Spotify playlist, “O.Geez”
The temps and weather right now…is weathering
Yeah the temps rn on this particular island…is feeling like the temps in one of my favourite places to live: the Bay Area.
So. I’m happy. My fellow islanders, not so much 😂 but I love it and it feels great. Matter the fact, it feels/aligns with and matches my mood. Good asf. I love it. Give thanks. For a whole lotta tings, but rn, especially music. & especially this gratitude and genuine love that I am blessed and inundated with. Yeah. Alluhdat.
Life is amazing. I mean, of course it’s not perfect.
I have my very human moments of overthinking, anxiety…have you seen (been living in) the state of the world? Depression. Relationships with people you love dearly that need adjustment, or disengagement. & learning (doing your best 😬) to give yourself the same grace and compassion you extend to others. & simply navigating life and the world as a queer Black person.
Life be Lifeing.
But, the Sun always shines again…even if it ain’t tomorrow.
Some shit ain curable in a day let’s bffr.
However…it does eventually.
And what a refreshing feeling.
It’s like…taking Lessons in Breathing*
Until it once again becomes automatic
Abundant Life all around you.
Love ALL around you-
no longer sustaining oneself from a single source
that wasn’t you.
You appreciate the beautiful blues and remember that they are the same hues
As a tropical sky
Within the eye
Of the beholder.
What you believe
What you perceive
Your thoughts and thinking becoming things
Remember the sunshine. Do your best.
*shout out to the amazing Slam Poet Theresa Davis & her life-changing poem (She brought tears to my eyes during several different performances of this poem back in Atlanta)
Just got back in the house after filling up buckets of water and toting them into the belly of the beast- aka where the fire behind mine and my neighbors homes are. There are a couple hot spots left but I just doused them in water and hosed/sprayed 🚿 the shit outta those areas and the green vicinity.
This is a continuation of my adventures from yesterday in being an amateur firefighter when your actual one’s aren’t available/around/understaffed etc.
Yeah. Myself and my neighbors had a time from about…I wanna say 6pm yesterday when the wind blew the “small bush fire” that was 6 houses down, directly behind several of our homes.
& that bitch was mean. I mean…raging at times.
Kinda reminds you of an Aries…or a Taurus if they get to that point 🤬
I digress. Fun night (not at all) but very grateful that we are all safe as well as our homes/property/animals. Give thanks all day.
This post was initially not about me learning the importance of controlled burns and clearing the bush behind your property annually. But yeah no…Lessons acquired.
& I also gotta big up my neighbors because we really all came together and made sure the other was ok and helped water each other’s lawns while the actual fires were being blown closer to our properties and the embers were blowing in the trees, grass, roof…
Ok but…aside from that, here’s why the eff I started this entry:
I read something just now that said, “find your missing piece” in regards to dating/relating.
& my immediate thought after I rolled my eyes was:
I am my missing piece.
Ain no way ima go around proclaiming and affirming to the Universe that I am incomplete or missing something, if I’m not attached to or coupled with someone. That’s wild as hell. Sounds like some serious spelling tbh; you making an agreement (and lk 🔑 putting a spell on yaself) by thinking and believing that someone else has to complete you. Shit. You gon be searching forever (outside of yourself) for something that you are responsible for;
Completeness and wholeness externally
Your own happiness/bliss.
Ngl to you, I been there, too. Could’ve written a book!
But. Give thanks for growth! and learning that was a false premise.
Yeah. That’s all I got, rn. I’m lk 🔑 exhausted from being alert & up all night/morning watching the smoke & bush behind the house.
Nonetheless, I had to take a quick moment to write that last part. Didn’t think I was gonna talk about the first part, tbh. & here we are 😎
& That Natalie Imbruglia wybe: Just leave me alone
No matter how many times I say it: “Come correct, or don’t come at all,”motherfuckers steady coming, lol.
If you can’t, if you are unable to give me the love that I need in this particular type of relationship dynamic, leave me tf alone.
I am graciously accepting and loving this life of peace & blessings that I have cultivated for myself so I would rather not allow half assed love/half ass attempts and especially not breadcrumbing. That shit is for birds.
I am no ones “option.” I am a priority; just as I would make the person in my life a priority.
So…I’ma say it again. Come correct or don’t come tf at all because it will not turn out well if you step into this sanctuary, with dirty feet.
& attempt to receive this abundant, beautiful, bountiful, healthy ass love from me-whilst not even being able to meet me halfway?
Half steppin just won’t work. & the way my 7th house is set up with those planets…We can make love or make war, it’s your choice. But I promise, I won’t be the mad one. & no one’s bullshit ass crumbs will steal my joy or disrupt my life. Them days over, bby. My peace is paramount & I will protect it.
Usually…well, I don’t think I made a post last year But I would post something about my B’EarthDay on my IG feed…but this year? Ine into dat. I just…am realizing that I’m not much of a fan of having my personal life up for public consumption. Been posting less and less personal stuff on the socials for a while now. I’m accepting that this is the most comfortable and balanced I feel. So yeah no
But I will post here. No personal images or videos…but, gratitude. Which is enough for me. My cup runneth over ✨
I treat myself (I do my best-some days not so much) and am treated wonderfully by the Universe, my fam and dearest loves/loved ones.
& In the ways that I show up for myself. The foods I intentionally consume and those that I stay away from. The intentional ways that I practice body movement, breathing exercises, take the time to meditate and incorporate healthier ways of being. Sticking to my morning routines. The ways that I speak to myself (the intrusive thoughts, too cuz I can overthink like a mf sometimes) but. Also what I allow and no longer allow. Having and sticking with my healthy boundaries. The life that I have cultivated that is inundated with peace. Abundance. & love. I am so much more aware of and grateful for my life and life in general.
I am extended thee most beautiful and divine love; stemming from my closest humans, to acquaintances and strangers alike.
I am grateful for every human that crosses my path. Whether it be for a reason, season &/or a lifetime…all tings align.
But yeah man..I’m just gonna continue on this path and gracefully and humbly accept all this beautiful ass love and life that I get to experience. It’s a blessing every day above ground.
Granted, some days that’s a lil hard to remember…because: being human. & Shit sucks sometimes…like shit 😂 but man. This ride has been wild af, like bat shit wild some of the things I’ve seen/lived/experienced…what a life. From ATL to the Bay. & errywhere in between…
I’ve had my share of setbacks, setups (ill-intentioned people, envious/jealous people will teach you A Lot of priceless gems and teach you how to better navigate life cuz it’s a lot of them mf’s in it) heartache and heartbreak…& I wouldn’t change that shit for anything. All it did was gift me with experience, lessons, wisdom, shadow work, discernment, a therapist! 😂😂 and the list continues with a whole lot of beautiful ass blessings along the way.
It led me here . To me. As I am now. I’m grateful af. Cuz it and I am only getting better and better. Refinement. More life 🥂 Give thanks ✨
You know…as I go through life and I meet new interesting, fascinating, amazing human beings it amazes me every single time when I come across people who go from relationship to relationship to relationship without any time in between.
Time for yourself. To heal. To deal. Time for self reflection, introspection, self actualization…shit any reflection in general, having time to breathe and process without adding an additional energy to your mix.
Someone once ended a 15+ year relationship (2 women) and by day 3, my friend was dating someone else. I’m just like 😳 because how does one do that…
I mean…yes, you’re getting experience because you’re experiencing other people in relationships and having to navigate the highways & byways of that going on…but like…to not ever spend ANY time alone is so wild to me.
I can’t even fathom mixing up someone new energy-with all that lingering energy and unprocessed shit from the last person/relationship.
& I think it also must be my 12H placements talking because I be needing all the space and all the time to get my shit/self together. Before, during and after dealing with someone in that capacity, especially.
