Black

Happy Friday people!

This is my Thursday post… or should I switch to Friday? Let me know in the comments.

Times are BUSY at the moment! There just doesn’t seem to be enough time for everything I need to do. Do you ever feel like that?

I thank God regardless as He’s the author of time. With that said I pray that He would show us pockets of time in which we can do the things which we don’t feel we have time for!

In the UK it’s Black History Month, and it’s a special one as it’s 30 years being celebrated here! Excuse my random thoughts following: yet at the same time, I haven’t heard much about it. Maybe it’s because of my current location or maybe I’m not using the right hashtags or following the right people but I feel distant. Sometime the best thing to do when you feel distant from something that benefits you is to immerse yourself in it, but how do you do so when you lack time because of things that need to be done day to day? Is it a matter of prioritising? Is it a matter of find little chunks of time to learn? Either way being a black women it’s something that is important to do, especially if, God willing I have children some day and it’s not taught in schools.

Last October I wrote a few articles for Curls Au Naturel called I am Black and Woman of Vision. Both remind me of the importance to know who you are and know where you’ve come from. There’s also another one called Hold Onto Your Roots which I wrote in March this year. Have a read and let me know what you think below.

I’m proud of who God made me. I love my dark skin,Β my afro hair, my shape and my culture.

 

Thanks for reading!Β Peace and love to you all.

ALSO look out for a new video on my YouTube Channel on Saturday at 1pm πŸ™‚
