Time to Check Your Goals.

Every so often, you should be checking on the status of your goals.  Always keep your goals in front of you so that you can constantly see them but that will also motivate you to stay consistent in actively accomplishing each one of them.  Some goals will be put to the side every now and then but don’t let life stop you or make that be an excuse. 

Let it Go!

You can’t change other people but you can change and control the things that you do and say and the connections that you make in life with people.  Don’t get caught up in people pleasing because you will be burned out trying to please people who will never be satisfied with anything you do or say.  If it’s not for you and the peace of life that is granted to you, let it go!

If you like people sliding in your DM’s only because you’re showing the world all or parts of your body to gain attention, be very careful because some attention is not worth the stress and heartache it causes.  Regardless to how many likes and follows you get, thirst traps are not empowering, they are very annoying!

Creatives Can Break the Algorithms – Together.

I just wish that we could go back to the old days when we can create a post and all 500 people that follow you, could see your content and engage with you.  Now, unless you slide in someone’s DM’s and ask them to like, share, comment, etc., only about 20 of your followers will see your content.  Sad I know.  Creatives I’ll leave you with this, continue to create your content don’t be allow the rules of social media algorithms dictate you are as a creative.  You are a creative online and offline, and don’t let any data processing systems tell you anything different.

Black Women Dying During Childbirth: What Can Be Done to Help Prevent This.

We all can do our parts to help prevent deaths of African American women during childbirth.  Having shortness of breath should never be a mother’s final breath before she witnesses the joy of seeing and holding her unborn child.  Lawmakers are aware of these health disparities but only can do so much.  It is a public health issue so that means we all are affected by this not just the mother’s immediate family.

Why Does She Continue to Stay?

The priority to help women in abusive relationships is to let them maintain power and control in their decision making.  They already have a partner telling them what to do and when to do it.  So don’t be that friend, family member or resource that’s barking orders at them.  Instead, be that support system that they need in that moment and crisis and respect whatever decision they make, even when you don’t agree with it.  Call the national domestic violence hotline (800)799-7233 for more resources and information specifically for your city, town or state.

It doesn’t matter where you are on your spiritual journey, exercise using your faith, do the work and God will do exceedingly and abundantly in your life.

Don’t Become Someone Else Online.

Don’t become the people online who I’ve just talked about.  Just be you is not just some cliché statement, it’s a lifestyle.  No matter what your flaws are or no matter what level you’re in in life, own it!  Being fake online just to impress your followers is a waste of your time and could be dangerous if you finally meet a person who has built trust in you and you turn out to be a fraud, it’s not worth it.
