Facts. Every single day of this retrograde from Halloween on, has been bananas. Absolutely nuts and life changing. This retrograde was to clear away the things that no longer serve you. Boy did I. From moving, to beginning and ending relationships, to old ideals I had to dismantle. The craziest retrograde I’ve experience thus far. How was your November 2019 retrograde? Was it bonkers? What did you release? How do you feel? Photo: Sun and Yoga
We teach girls to shrink themselves
To make themselves smaller
We say to girls
“You can have ambition
But not too much
You should aim to be successful
But not too successful
Otherwise you will threaten the man”
Because I am female
I am expected to aspire to marriage
I am expected to make my life choices
Always keeping in mind that
Marriage is the most important
Now marriage can be a source of
Joy and love and mutual support
But why do we teach to aspire to marriage
And we don’t teach boys the same?
We raise girls to each other as competitors
Not for jobs or for accomplishments
Which I think can be a good thing
But for the attention of men
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings
In the way that boys are
Feminist: the person who believes in the social
Political, and economic equality of the sexes.
-Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Gay man. Here are six reasons I’m angry about it. Antoni from Queer Eye, he’s smart, he cooks, his humor is witty and dry. Oh and he’s hot as f*uck. Those soulful brown eyes, those rock hard abs. Also he’s stylish as f*uck. Why has god forsaken me? It really just isn’t fair. Photos: Antoni Porowski insta
Is there a way to make a bookshelf that makes your books glow? That would be so dope. Can you identify any of these book covers?
There are so many pretty faces, who you are inside is what burns the brightest. What’s the most interesting thing about you? Photo: The Good Quote
I don’t think you know what pain is.
I don’t think you’ve gone that way,
I could bring you so much pleasure
I’ll come to you when you say.
Phillip Lim jacket got me salivating at the mouth, gorgeous winter wear is part of what makes the season bearable. Are you feeling this?
“You want to manifest your dreams, so you’re not eating? That doesn’t make sense to me, that sounds dumb.”
My response: Well when I manifest what I want I’m going to rub it in your face…bitch.
This was the interaction I had with someone, when I explained that I was fasting. Intermittently fasting, which means I don’t eat for 16 hours at a time. I really didn’t like any of the new spaces I saw, they either wanted me to commit to it long term, or I just didn’t feel it. Finally after passing all these tough life lessons, healing whatever traumas and ancestral genetic codes that needed repair, I have entered into a new beginning. I’m healed.
Everyone’s hurdles are different. My biggest one being that I didn’t believe in myself. I didn’t fully have faith that I deserved, or could create the life I want.
So, I decided not to settle. Fasting has worked for me in the most arduous of times. It’s a great way to detoxify your body, improve brain function, repair your immune system and give mental clarity. It cleanses your soul and brings you closer to god. Also to maintain balance one must give to receive, so I sacrificed food. Which is hard, because I love to eat.
Then bingo, bango, I found the cutest space for this transitional period! I’m in a position where everything I want is so, so, so close. An arms reach away, so I did’t want to invest fully. To outsiders leaving a secure, clean, full amenity space based on energy, in the ever expensive New York City seems nuts. But the opportunities of abundance that have blossomed in my life since, has confirmed I know what I’m doing. No matter what someone else thinks. Especially when that person isn’t in a positive mental space.
Fasting worked. So as promised I rubbed it in her face and was like suck it. Have you ever fasted? Would you? Why not try?
I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted. Monday, you’ve been dismissed.
