Sometimes it feels like being an artist is synonymous with mental illness and depression. I would imagine adding woman of colour and mother adds quite a few layers of complexity. I don’t use these as crutches but I do use them to understand my mental health and how I can maintain & improve. After having my son - who is my life’s greatest blessing, I went through and still battle with so many conflicting thoughts and emotions. As a career driven person trying to create something from nothing, there is always “Mom guilt” and other people making judgements. A couple months ago I got into the mindset that, what is good for me is good for my son and those around me, it’s not up to me to help others understand my journey, one day they will get it. What’s best for me is to keep listening to my heart and make sound decisions for my soul that feed my purpose in this life. Part of our battle with mental health comes from the expectations of others both verbalized and assumed, our attachments to energies out of obligation and blind loyalty. Sometimes we need to take a step back and think about “is this good for ME?” “Does this FEEL right?” “Is this a MUTUAL exchange or am I just pouring unrequited energy into this person/project?” I started living FOR ME! Because at the end of the day we have control over what we allow, and if we continue to allow incompatible energies to suck us dry and dim our spirit we will seal our own fate. It’s important to always reflect and reassess what we notice is draining us and what is feeding us because mental health is a delicate dance. Stay strong, persevere, we can do this! #worldmentalhealthday #yourenotalone s/o to all the badass moms I know killing it and raising little humans, you the real MVP! (Childless women are also killing it, not trying to downplay your hustle! ) #muchlove ♥️
Strangers become lovers and then become strangers again. Every person you come into contact with, especially intimately, carries the energies of their demons, demons can be past heartbreak, drug addictions, abuse, or any experience that has left a negative impact on the person in question. If you’re not careful they can pass those on to you and make you feel less than the magic that you are. Choose wisely. #thisthingcalledlife 🙃
Life can be only what you make it
When you're feelin down
You should never fake it
Say what's on your mind
And you'll find in time
That all the negative energy
It would all decease
And you'll be at peace with yourself
You won't really need no one else
If you looked at my life
And see what I see... My Life #1994 #maryjblige
Monday’s eclipse asks me to honor the energy that I put into all my partnerships. It reveals the collaborations that are contributing to my success. It reveals the collaborations that are in need of a clearing.
All partnerships go through periods of readjustment. I welcome this process. I welcome this clarity. I welcome the chance to redefine my agreements with others.
Monday’s eclipse shines a light on what is working and what needs to be worked on. I am honest with myself about what both are. I give love and appreciation for what I have received from others. I remember to show gratitude for the gifts that folks have brought into my life. I remember that I didn’t get here on my own and in order to get anywhere else in life I need you. So thank you.
I use this week to recommit to releasing what no longer feels resonant with me. I willingly edit the plans that I previously made that now feel out of place. I release any pressure that I feel to stick to a conservative path of progress. I release any preconceived notion that I should know where I am going. Part of living a successful life is aligning ourselves accordingly with the moment. I align myself with the needs of my life here and now. 🌒✨ #capricorn #solareclipse #affirmations via @chaninicholas

@princessnokia speaking the truth here! If you feel like you're weird or think different, then embrace it. There's a reason for your differences. There's a reason you're unique. It's because you need to personally evolve and upgrade to the next level. There are all types of signs that indicate this but the best way to hear them is to engage in some alone time and reflection. #staywoke and check out #princessnokia's #1992 EP. Hella dope and one of my favorite new artist gaining momentum this year!!
