Before she was my Mother, she was a Daughter, a Sister, a Wife, a Woman. A fiery Caribbean ting... she is my own personal Claire Huxtable... an example of beauty, brains and wit. She is driven and creative, tough, but tender, a no nonsense having, light in every room...generous beyond measure, a world class green thumb, exceptional cook, and life of the party. She is Donna (aka GaGa), And she is a force. She LIVES for her family. She taught me how to LOVE as she does...fearlessly. And the further along I get in motherhood, I come to better understand and appreciate her strength as a human... and not just as a mother. She is the gift that keeps on giving. 💜 . . . Happy Mother’s Day Mom. Love You So Much.

None of us are well, until all of us are well 💔 His name is #AhmaudArbery. He was chased down and shot dead by white supremacists, while jogging in his neighborhood (there is recorded footage of this). His murderers have yet to be charged with his death. . . . TEXT “JUSTICE” to 55156 to advocate for his case. We must demand that his case be investigated as the hate crime that it is. . . . You don’t need to be a lawyer to understand the injustice here. You don’t need to be black to fight against the systemic and public racism that plagues the United States. You simply need to be human. Do something. Text. Sign the petition. Speak for those who’s voices have been silenced. #RunWithMaud

It’s amazing to see how much grace we allow ourselves during this quarantine. The gentleness and patience that we can have for ourselves and others because in these uncertain times, all you can do is try your best. Imagine if we lived this way always? Refraining from passing judgment on how people appear, look or act... because you know... we’re all just trying our best. • You didn’t get everything done on your “to do list”? .... No problem! Working from home is hard. There’s always tomorrow. 🙂 • You couldn’t go to the salon to touch up your roots and now your gray hair is showing out? ... No worries! Everyone’s hair, nails and eyebrows are trash right now! 💁🏾♀️ • You put on a few pounds because food is really comforting during this stressful time?... Don’t worry about it!! Everyone is putting on the quarantine fifteen! 👍🏾 • • • Now remove all the permissions and forgiveness with quarantine being the main reason. Can you still allow yourself the grace to be who you are?? You don’t actually need the permission or approval of the world to define how you feel about yourself. Shoooot... if my gray hair would grow evenly all over, I’d be a young silver fox in these streets with no cares...Trust me 👩🏾🦳!!! Point being... you’re fine exactly as you are right now. Be gentle with yourself. Be Well. 💜 . . . Ps- Fun Fact.... all the women in my family went gray super young. Except for my granny (my dads mom) who died at 84 with a “full head of black hair” 😂😂😂 she wasn’t trying to give into these grays for nothing.
✨🐚✨ Fun fact: I got this directly from the ocean, on an island where we (J and I) fell in love. The moment I held this shell I felt a deep connection to it... almost like I had been destined to find this particular shell at that exact moment. It felt like an omen... a true gift from the universe. The thing I love most about it, is how instinctively feminine it is... naturally resembling the anatomical design of a woman’s reproductive system... the flower of life. That trip was literally the beginning of what would become the next phase of my divine journey in womanhood.... 7 years later... ✨Artist, Lover, Mother.
Know what you’re fighting for. ✨
I believe the inner workings of your spiritual being are connected to your physical and emotional body. I have literally been challenged by physical ailments that stemmed directly from blocked energy and stored trauma. Spiritual practice and healing is a huge resource for maintaining my wellness. Sometimes to identify what you are without, you must go within. ✨ . . . 👉🏾👉🏾👉🏾 swipe for a quick crash course on your chakras. ✨ Be Well, My Loves.
“It’s almost like I knew this man from another life... like back then maybe I was his husband, and maybe he was my wife.” 🖤 . . . One of my favourite lyrics from “The Truth” by @IndiaArie. I believe it’s more important to find your twin flame, rather than your soul mate. The connection to a twin flame is based in truth... there is no where to hide...they are your mirror... you see yourself clearly in them... the good and the bad.... accountability is enforced.... although unpredictable in pattern, the dance is always fluid.... just like the flickering of the 🔥✨🔥 . .
