Something like a Phenomena

20130305-180446.jpg

Folks over at Black Cotton Apparel got in contact with me to review one of the amazing “Natural” tees. Lucky for me I was drawn to the amazing “Natural Phenomena” tee. I wanted to choose a shirt that would be both uplifting for me and those that saw me in the tee. Once I came across the description behind the tee, I knew i just had to have it. The description posted with the shirt read:

When you walk down the street, you cant help but to turn heads.  Like a force of nature, you cannot be denied.  Black Cotton Apparel celebrates the natural phenomena that is you.

–  BlackCottonApparel.com

It was so me! Recently, I have been filled with smiles even when things may not feel all rosey. I have learned to accept people and things as they are. You cannot change anyone but yourself. I know it sounds very cliche but, it is true you have to change yourself if you want change. Well, let me get back to the tee! I put it on and my day felt brighter and I was many more smiles. It was midweek and I was happy to be alive and well. I was feeling exactly what the tee read, hence why the song kept playing in my head; “something like a phenomena, something like a phenomena”.

I say all of this to encourage you to be a phenomena, natural or not! Love who you are, where you will go and where you have come from. It is all a journey, whether we accept it or not one day you will have to. Appreciate all of your journey, good or bad, you where created for this.

Love yourself,

Live your Dream, Love your Dream!’

Life is But a Dream

That indeed is true. The beauties of the world around us are taken for granted. No one other than ourselves can create the dream that we have been destined to live. For Beyoncé her dream was her life of music. Watching her documentary truly gave me and I think everyone else watching that moment they’ve always wanted. A moment to see the real Beyoncé, a moment to believe that she still is a person.

It was truly beautifully written; for her to give us a piece of the real her. It helped me to feel what she felt. BEYONCÉ IS HUMAN! It showed me that we as people have been idolizing those who are “famous”, treating them as God. When really they are just normal people like you and I. They cry, they anger, they laugh, they are human.

She lived her dream, and allowed things to fall into place. She was giving us all of her with so little. It was so grateful, so resilient, so filled with her humility. Beyoncé helped me to realize that many things should be kept where they should be. That when things are to be revealed to you or others they are. The universe, God & you shall be molded together.

She told us that love is real, that love exists. She showed us that we can love each other as people and grow together. We can respect who we are and still be great. We can overcome hard times, we are resilient. We can achieve ANYTHING that exists deep within our soul.

Life is truly but a dream and you have to make those dreams into your life. Watching this documentary today helped me to finally bring about many things I wanted to bring up for all of my Goddess’.

I had longed to create posts to help many to take the initiative to embrace who they are and this I feel was the perfect way to do so.

It doesn’t matter if you saw the documentary or not. Her life and many others lives are a blueprint, a blueprint that may guide us all to our greatness. Her life may not be your guide, but that loss that you encountered it will help you overcome, it will help you to become stronger. That achievement you made will show you that you are exactly where you should be.

Believe in You!! You are a Goddess'(King) and life is more than a dream it is reality.

Thank You for letting us in Carter/Knowles Family.

Love YOU!!,

Brooklyn Fros

I decided I would make the effort every month to be in attendance at the Target First Saturdays at Brooklyn Museum. Well last weekend I made it for my second month in a row. I was pretty happy about this one in particular because the one last month was a bit blah(DAMN YOU SANDY!!!). It was definitely an eventful night with the various talks, beautiful people,music(by the Afro Band) , wines, and of course ART. Who couldn’t ask for more.

I would have to say thought that I have fallen in deeeeep love with one of the most recent exhibits by Mickalene Thomas. When I tell you her art is just so Frolicious and empowering.
