A lot of us don’t know that in 1999, Loyd Jowers and others were brought to trial on a civil suit on behalf of the King family. Witnesses set out details of conspiracy to the assassination of this Honorable Man it involved J Edgar Hoover, FBI, Richard Helms And the CIA, the military, Memphis police, and organized crime. This book gives you the truth behind the killing of one of our greatest leaders and how James Earl Ray was set up to take the fall. An army sniper actually committed the act and the government cleaned up the crime scene afterwards. The US Government wanted to shut down a movement for social change by stopping its leader.  The Government is still doing that today you ask me. This book will give a lot of unanswered question please don’t allow your children to learn about our history in school cause they teach untruths and lies it starts at home and with us. #knowyourtruths #thisisourblackhistory #dontletwhitepeopledictateyourknowledgeofself

What happens when we kill the love we were never taught to see? In the U.S., African Americans are 2.5 times more likely to be killed by police than whites. Of the 7, 407 Black victims of homicide in 2018; 6,237 were Black men and 1,168 were Black women. At all ages, Black Americans display lower marriage rates than do other racial and ethnic groups.
-
In Blue, some are taught to mistreat the likes of my ancestors as our legacy is summarized in protests, incarceration, systemic oppression, and more while our blood stains walls and grounds we built but are never able to call home.
-
In Black, love sometimes stems from deep fear wrapped in joy and despair that as children statements like "I beat you because I love you" are normalized, so we become adults who believe the same-accepting what we shouldn't. Beating each other verbally, physically, psychologically, & emotionally due to teachings never produced by our own, yet are studied and applied as if it's more valuable than love and respect itself.
-
"Babies come from fucking, plain and simple . . ." but babies also come from beautiful love making. In love, we must believe in one another, so much so that we hold hands as one learns to nurse themselves back to health, rather than walk away.
-
Question: “where has the enjoyment of exploring spontaneous Black love gone?”
-
This post goes out to all, but especially the women who are so focused on their careers, actively processing past traumatic experiences, or are too afraid to let love in. Know that I. See. You! I encourage you to take selfies, be sexy, and love you a little differently. #Cocky?-Nah. #Conceited?-Sometimes, mostly #confident. #Insecure?-Aren’t we all? You deserve to receive love, just as much as you give it from someone worthy.
-
To heal and to love, we have to talk about how hard it is to be Black, love Blacks, and be in love with Blacks, for all, even Blacks!
-
Strangers can be love. History can be rewritten. Legacies can be built today.

”Living in the moment means letting go of the past and not waiting for the future. It means living your life consciously, aware that each moment you breathe is a gift.” – @oprah
-
There are/were many times when the woman I imagined I'd be was a woman I had yet to see or know was real. Barley able to live in the current moment because I was fixated on a future me-losing touch of all that I am presently. Today, all of who I am is because of my community, my commitment to persist, taking accountability for the ugly truths of my selfish tendencies, and diligently working hard to be better with every second I have to breathe.
-
This year, among the many people and understandings I am grateful for, the one element I would like to highlight today is my ability to ALWAYS come back to a place of #Joy.
-
Each of us encounter dark days. Sometimes, our dark days may last for weeks, months, or years. In those moments, never forget just how powerful YOUR sate of mind is and just how powerful it is to intentionally allow joy to be part of your life!
-
Today, I crush on ALL of you, especially those who struggle to embrace joy among the madness-yet still try! Thank you for choosing to value joy in times of light & darkness and for choosing to hold on, even when letting go was easier.
-
I challenge you all to continue reflecting on the moments you were able to live nowhere else but IN THE MOMENT and remember that joy is and always will be present. Sometimes, we just have to pause to recognize it.
-
YOU are the universe's gift, every second you're here to breathe.

Did you know that all businesses are built & based on relationships?

And did you know that the most successful relationships are built on honesty?

So let me ask you... How can you and your business grow to the fullest potential without honesty...?🤔 You can't! Overtime, dishonesty will crumble your personal and financial success. And that is why today's message is so important‼️
.
.
#Look at yourself and ask, "Am I honest with myself & others? Are there pains from my past I am not being truthful about?"
.
.
No, yes, maybe?😕... It's okay, I know honesty isn't easy.

However, if you choose to continue this path of dishonesty and false realities... you will not reach your fullest potential. Not until you make it right w/ these parts of yourself.

And I know what you're thinking..."Easier said than done", right?! 😂

Confronting these truths are hard. Especially if growing up, a life of honesty was never modeled for you.

For me, that was my challenge👆. And if it weren't for my wife saying to me, "I just want to be married to someone who is in f*cking reality" I would have never realized how dishonest I was being.

She was 💯 right! I was not in reality...I was not being truthful with myself.

Here I was trying to be a grown married man running a business, while still dealing with past traumas. Pains &anger from my childhood were eating me up! I wasn't being sincere with myself about how much it all still hurt & how much those pains were limiting me.🤦‍♂️
.
.
From that moment on, my eyes were open to what was in my way...ME!  I was allowing my past traumas to cause limitations in my life. Therefore preventing myself from becoming my best! All because I refused to acknowledge and speak my truths.

That was the realization I needed. And from that day on I full-on love and live the truth. I have fallen in love with the truth.

My friends...You have to set free everything you have locked up🔥

If you "aren't fine" DO NOT say that you are!

Feel the pain, confront the pain, DEAL WITH IT, and fully set it free🙏

That is what it means to live your full potential. This is how you achieve your best self and grow a solid business. 👊

#honestyistheway Do you agree?👇...be honest 😉

Do you feel pressured to be in a relationship? Conversations that I’ve engaged in with variation the last year. My response: “Several years ago I did, but not anymore!” I will not be in a relationship with a man I am not spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, professionally, physically, and socially smitten by. 
_ 
Truth is, I feel more pressured to 1) Silence my voice, simplify my ambitions, and to not speak as passionately regarding topics I care about because I may be perceived as intimidating; 2) Explain why I am not in an exclusive relationship or prioritizing dating; 3) Lower my standards regarding the character traits of the type of person I would like to build with because I am getting “older”; and 4) Grow out my hair to appear less “dominant”, as though one should have to defend their own honor to be proudly in-love and committed to pouring into self BEFORE doing so for someone else.
_ 
I am not broken because I am outspoken, career-driven, unafraid to uphold men to high standards, and love my natural hair! Listen, we cannot create worlds where we empower all to be proud of who they are, live in their purpose, and thrive to achieve what they believe to be their highest level of potential and then fault them for doing so. My worth as a woman is not defined by the man I lock arms with and call my husband.
_

So, excuse me as I bask in the glory, joy, and honor of what it means to love myself in the purest of forms that I can, BEFORE the thoughts, comments, projections, hurts, fears, and insecurities of OTHERS became the world that served as MY guiding compass of self-worth. I have been living for me and loving me as a single adult in a healthy way for ONLY a couple of years. I am not sorry, that I want to thrive in it and only invite someone I believe is TRULY deserving to enter it.

Artist @merakilabbe “Sometimes the one who is running from the Life/Death/Life nature insists on thinking of love as a boon only. Yet love in its fullest form is a series of deaths and rebirths. We let go of one phase, one aspect of love, and enter another. Passion dies and is brought back. Pain is chased away and surfaces another time. To love means to embrace and at the same time to withstand many endings, and many many beginnings- all in the same relationship.” -Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes

This applies to our romantic relationships, friendships, relationship with our creative work and, most importantly, ourselves. How can we hold ourselves and each other as we continue to grow, change and evolve? How can we release and create in the rhythms that our creative work has to offer us? To allow what no longer wants to live to die so that, like a wildfire that clears the forest, new, healthy growth can appear? It is one of the greatest challenges to move with life during moments of transition. These times require we are gentle and highly attuned. And that we rest, for great changes are happening in, around, and through us.

Hello! I thought I’d take a moment to introduce myself here and say thank you to everyone who is following this journey. Getting this work out there has been a couple of years (or a lifetime if I’m honest with myself) in the works and I’m grateful to everyone who is feeling its resonance. I’ve been participating in #thegoodgram challenge with @lucysheridan , and I am so inspired seeing so many of the fellow participants taking up their own gorgeous space, that I feel much more confident showing my face (!) and speaking some of my truths, so here are a few:
✨
My name is Jodie and this photo was taken in July on my 38th birthday. It was such a beautiful day spent with people I love! There’s a lot to say about how I got here. One of the main factors was a collection of chronic illnesses that took me out of my functional life and forced me to sit still long enough to truly examine what I am here to do. This work emerged from that.
🐈
I had a deep spiritual connection from childhood, when I was 6 I told my mom we needed to find a church so I could start doing God’s work — this was a misguided placement of my spirituality (for me! Religion is obviously a deeply personal thing) but I learned a lot from my self-imposed religious upbringing that I will delve into another time! After high school I ran in the opposite direction of my spirituality, but always found myself circling back around to this quest for deeper understanding of energies and how the world and the people around us function.
🐈
I LOVE animals and have three animal friend companions, a chihuahua and two cats who are all between 16 and 17 1/2 years old and have been with me most of their lives. (One of my cats was only 5 days old when I found him! 😻)
🌳
In my life I have been an actor, a waitress (those two go together often!), a receptionist, a business manager, a newspaper reporter, a PR coordinator, a freelance writer, and most recently a caregiver for the grandparents of my heart. And this is how I show up to you now — a collection of all these me’s I’ve been before.
🐛
I’d love to hear more about all of you and how you arrived where you are now, so please comment below and tell me some of your truths! 💚

(One of my cats was only 5 days old when I found him! 😻) 🌳 In my life I have been an actor, a waitress (those two go together often!), a receptionist, a business manager, a newspaper reporter, a PR coordinator, a freelance writer, and most recently a caregiver for the grandparents of my heart. And this is how I show up to you now — a collection of all these me’s I’ve been before. 🐛 I’d love to hear more about all of you and how you arrived where you are now, so please comment below and tell me some of your truths! 💚 - 5 months ago
