Be confident in the skin you are in. At this age in my life, no one can touch my self-esteem. It is the ESTEEM of mySELF. How can you allow someone to destroy how you feel… about you?
You are Be-YOU-tiful !!!
After a life changing abundance of fun being involved in Mercedes Benz Fashion week- New York, How can my week possibly get any better? I spoke too soon. I unexpectedly had a great experience while in Newark, NJ. Besides the many horror stories you heard about the area it’s different when you explore a place with your own two eyes. Because my friend likes to sleep (over 12 hours to be exact) I decided I wouldn’t stay in wasting my morning away. Siri directed me to the nearest bookstore. How convenient 4 minutes walking distance, “Source of Knowledge“. What a powerful name I thought.
I arrived with the aroma of calming scents and positive vibes. A place so welcoming I spent 2 hours in. Not a huge place but an overwhelming selection of books from Blueprint for Black Power, Kemetic diet, Zane books and the newest The pussy trap 2. I left with two books I’ll most likely complete this week, Think and Grow Rich : A Black Choice by Dennis Kimbro and Napoleon Kill. Mastery by Robert Greene. Also, a DVD I that was playing while I was shopping around that kept drawing me in. Hidden Colors 1,2,and 3 !! I brought the entire collection lol.
I’ve gained so much knowledge from my prestigious University but I’ve truly received majority of my knowledge from “me time” spent in local libraries reserving and requesting books of my chocie. Being that I’m not sure where life will take me, I don’t always purchase books or my collection of books would be a library, itself. Money well spent. I love coming encounter with other individual who recognize my value as a Black Goddess and feed my mind with an intellectual conversation. My new traveling goal as, “The Blonde Historian” is wherever I am to explore the nearest bookstore.

What does it mean to have a Type A personality? Type A side of the spectrum are those that are more driven, more focused, more goal-oriented, more diligent, more likely to get stressed and emotional. They love sleeping, but have trouble stopping their thoughts from racing. Doing things with a purpose is the only way they know how to live. If there is not purpose behind action, then Type A personalities don’t see a reason for doing it in the first place. They understand that actions are only worth the goal they are trying to achieve.

BLONDE MOMENT: 1980 Basquiat met Andy Warhol at a restaurant. Basquiat presented to Warhol samples of his work, and Warhol was stunned by Basquiat’s genius and allure. The two artists later collaborated. For Andy, it was love at first sight with Basquiat. It was unrequited, but they seemed to meet each other on a spiritual level and both benefited from the friendship. When Andy Warhol died on February 22, 1987, Basquiat became increasingly isolated, and his heroin addiction and depression grew more severe. Basquiat died at 27 from a heroin overdose.

Every flower must grow through dirt.
Sometimes you have to step back and smell the roses. Granted these flowers were fake but that doesn’t take away from the value of joy it brought me for those few moments. I’ve had to realize that, “Nothing will ruin your 20’s more than thinking you should have your life together already.” It’s a process and a journey that I’ve learned to go with the flow. As I continue to work hard everything will fall into place.
